Trying to give me to go to Hawaii. I'll do it was unreal. The only problem the whole week was that it was super super windy. Yeah. Which is kind of like a just a buzz kill it was sand. Makes you feel on edge. Does it? I mean, if you're not on the beach like, you know, if you're hanging by the pool sands on an issue, but it's still like. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Whatever it some about in Calgary. There's these like Chinook winds that happen and people people get more depressed because of the positive ions. I guess what? In the wind. Yeah. That's a thing causes depression. Yeah. Wh- not like full blown depression. But people get more depressed. Got it does the wind hits you, and you're instantly suicidal. Yeah. I'm feeling good. I got the new job. Would it doesn't matter. Nothing actually matters anymore. Shoot me now. All right. What what was this shit? You're sending me about the these. Okay. Do you got to be the whitest richest richest whitest crime ever these fucking celebrities? Okay. It's I'm gonna bring it up real quick. All right. It's Laurie Laughlin Laurie Laughlin, and she she was let me bring up. I can she was a what's her face in full house and then in fuller house. Let me her daughter's like a youtuber look up her face Laurie law FMO and Felicity Huffman. Okay. Okay. So they this is crazy. They got charged. In with a federal federal indictment. Okay. Because they were involved in this giant like conspiracy to get their kids into colleges that they couldn't get into. So basically what they did is they paid. They do they paid this guy that ran like a like was called like a tutoring service or something on a really he was just like a con artist who was really good at getting people into schools only paid him fifteen million dollars to get their kids into USC and like other schools by by bribing coaches in the school to say that the kid is an athlete, and that they were gonna get recruited so that they flagged their application. No lonely that but they also cheated on the SAT's on the ACT's. Do you cheat on those tests? How do they had like other kids take them for them or something this is a whole fucking scheme? It's crazy. Jetson they're kicking go to USC. Which I didn't even that goal, man. Oh my God. Dude. Oh my God. Do they had? They this is funny. What in one case? Okay here. Much of the indictment revolves around. William Rick singer, the founder of a four profit college counseling and preparation business known as the key as laid out in the indictment singer allegedly paid college coaches to claim that a prospective student should be accepted to college because the student was recruit for their sports team, however singer, and the coaches knew the student was not competitive boa in one case singer, even worked with parents to take staged photos of their child engaged in particular sports in another example, they use stock photos of a person playing a sport. And then put the face of the student onto the half rival shop will I don't even photo. Shopping your kids face soccer. Well, I don't even feel bad for the schools for accepting that shit because they got really got duped by some. That's what did it for them. Not even the coaches, right? Dating. Look, he's playing the get the I don't like a stock picture with the watermarks and then lost. Let's face Photoshop Dover. It's like this is actually this is clearly a dude's body, if that's how it looks the judge just has to reverse the whole things every you know, what what they did was bad. But his worse that you fell for that. I'm gonna just say not guilty, man. You y'all some dumb ass. Y'all some whole idiots out here. That's that is the whitest shit ever. I mean, it's just like I thought if you're rich you can just donate a ton to the school and they'd accept your kid. Isn't that the way that shit works a thought? Yeah. Usually. They paid this dude. Twenty like their kids must be fucking down. Yeah. Yeah. Just dumb as nails domes nail. How much say he's like we mainly what USC a building. And you still not gonna accept my child. Sorry is stupid. That's so well, what do you say to that? What do you even say that? It's crazy. I mean, it's like it's just a stupid. It's like what a dumb fucking crime the most privileged crime ever. Yeah. Like, what are you also funneling money through your yoga studios or something? Yeah. That's that's so wild. Emmer reminds me of weeds or something show totally would have thought Laurie Laughlin, and Felicity Huffman and now federal criminals. The the problem, you know, be fucked up if they did more time than six nine. It will be very locked up. Yup. They ended up doing like actual time. And oh, no, dude. She snatches on all the other. Although the moms moms, then they start a reality show inside the federal prison, the real moms that have. Yeah. The real moms club fed. Just like totally there. This. Well, Cynthia told me she would share her Rama noodles with me as today and now she's not going to. So I'll have a word with her about that Lori God less time because she's been running this fucking yoga class in the mornings for all the other inmates is not even good. It's like her body. Yeah. I get it yet. Lou. She's in great shape for being forty five. But whatever it's not that good. Okay. I could easily do that class. I'm sorry. Susan were you just talking about my glass? No, no me. No, no, Laurie. Come on. We're best as best as you know, that Perfetti best is fine. That you run a average yoga class when we all know beaker meal goes the way to go. Two things about one about prison. What about passive aggression one? So Martin Shkreli this muffle. Yeah. What's the deal with that? I didn't I couldn't read article because it was fucking locked. Yeah. The Wall Street Journal, the if you wait a little ex- pops up, and you can close it no way. So basically, he it appears that he's advising his pre is prior yet company from prison the cell phone. Yeah. And and they're saying that it will. You're not allowed to run a business for like earn money while like imprison, so you can't conduct business while imprisoned. That's what it is. Okay. So the thing they're going to nail him for more time for you know, basically telling them how to run the company why would cause I feel like they they interviewed him. Didn't they to get that article? I don't know. I only got as far as that. And that he kinda roams around with like, two cronies and. Us about it. Oh, and he he was going to join a band in prison supposedly, but the band was made up of pedophile. Right. So as to Hamis like don't do that. And I guess it's crazy the way they have to tell you not to do that. Why wouldn't you just be like I'm not going to join his band or the way the way it's worded makes it seem like he was still going to do it. But I take it with a grain of salt man, because you know, some articles are written about us, and the sensationalization was crazy. Yeah. You know? So I don't know. Oh, especially but like with him though, I feel like that nothing is too weird with that. That's fucking weird. They can get away with it. It'd be like imagine. They're just like have a writer's room for it. What if he want to join a band full a pedophile? Yeah. The lead singer six nine. What if Martin give six nine the Wu Tang album? Just the instrumentals and six nine wraps on them. On the Wu Tang, the new Wu Wu Tang album in this timeline. Dude. Nothing would surprise me. Now like that. No weird. She like that happens every day now. Yeah. That Alex Jones podcast put the. Yeah. Listen. I mean, he sounded like me. He couldn't breathe you will sit that. Here's a hearing. I never said that sandy hook didn't happen. Yeah. Yeah. It's like, dude. Just take relax take a breath. He's gotta pinched nerve. Like, I do is that what it is. Yeah. So my doctor saying like the she's surprised that I don't have constant headaches because of how bad it is. What does it feel like does your whole net? Get stiff my neck is just now my neck is like stiff I get. So I had like shooting pain down my arms, that's finally gone away. I get like intermittent pain like inbetween my shoulders, but it's mainly that like my neck. I can't really move it around. And that it just like just kind of in general like fucks up, and I told her I have trouble breathing, and she's like, it's probably from the nerve. 'cause like I do I could tell like if I extend my neck in. It's like loose. I can breathe just fine. But if it like if I experienced titan is back there. You know, it gets shitty. Getting some shit too. I'm in doubt at the same thing. But it's like it's weird as fuck. It's my neck gets really stiff for some reason. I can't lay down the couch. It feels like it like my head is really heavily. I can't pick it up that might be the star, man. It's weird and subjecting my breathing two or something is it do that might be the start. So the odds that we had we would have the exact same condition. Fucking chairs. No like should posture in front of the computer. Yeah. Like like and looking down at looking owns looking down. Yeah. I mean, just that. And then laptops, and like, whatever. That's why. Yeah. There you go. You got to look up, dude. Nice. Good posture. Yeah. I mean, that's why the new love island is edited by someone else. I like, I gotta give editing for a bit. It's like straight up this way. She told me she was like, you cannot use the computer as much as you've been. So you have to cut it down. Like, I don't care. How you do? It. You have to start now. Damn. Yeah. What it'll just keep progressing and yeah bed. Yeah. She she was like, roasting me. What did you go to the doctor with like, do you just go because of this? Yeah. I had like insane pain like in my shoulders, and like it might traps of just like it was like stabbing like to the point like I wanted to cry when I couldn't sleep and then she xrays my neck. She goes. Yes. So if a really bad pinched nerve, I normally see this in women who are like eight years old. So I don't know what you're doing. So like let's start like she was like almost angry. I've Sar at. She's like your. I was like, oh, I added a lot of video. Yeah. I've seen that before. It was like, well, we're definitely like this this and that I have to sleep without a pillow start to that sucks. Yeah. I think I could do that. So whatever man, I mean, hopefully, you know, go to the document ask ask what the deal is. Yeah. Well, we've just got a cop. Some new nex. Yeah. That's what it is. Yeah. Yes. We get neck replacement neck replace. Yeah. Everybody gets a chain. Whatever it's going to get a new neck. Get a whole new neck. I'm a by a twenty one year old athletes neck Yemen's going to be super long. Yeah. Dumb long. Yeah. Dumb long neck iced out. I still I style. Vertebrae must down neck bus down. Hold on. I say the other thing I said Martin Shkreli an impassive. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Has it dude? So season finale the bachelor parts. Yeah. God damn it. They stretch footage. Like, ooh, they stretch footage harder than that girl. Who who put that gigantic dildo in harass stretches for asshole? It's crazy. They milk the same ten seconds of footage for thirty minutes. I couldn't believe it. It's pretty it's pretty genius. It's impressive. It really is. So then that means stupid people to watch the same thing over and over and over again, and they're just like and then just fill it with ads. Yeah. Like unreal. Dude. People complain when I put a few mid rolls in in a twenty minute video bash lower than to watch the bachelor bachelor Watson copy and paste the same edit five fucking time. And then put six ads in between intention one. It's crazy and all eighty percent of America. Just sit Sern and yes it up. Yeah. Is man I was dying laughing, dude. Could that anyone first of all this dude is crying. So that's what happens when your virgin, you cry. Okay. Because like you have you've never been the nut has to come out somewhere. Yeah. It's like, it's all you're all pent up. And this guy used to be a full. Ball player too. So it's just bad for him. He's got high test. You know? Yeah. Their milk come out of your eyes with the fuck is crying. Crying. Come holy squirting out of your eyes. Oh shit. It's shooting out of his walking cornea. What? Yes. So this man is crying all the time. So basically, he's got three girls left. Two of them. 'bout his age one of them young? It's like twenty three the young one rejects him. Okay. She ends it. She cuts it off. She's like, you know, it went on the finale this is like last week. Okay. Gotcha. You know, she ends it because she couldn't like it's the funniest shit. The dude goes, so I just wanna let you know that. When I spoke to your father. He did not give me his blessing. Then she's like. I just thought my family would trust me. And I think that's something. You would've wanted to tell me sooner or not really confused ends like all this drama. And I could imagine everyone being like, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Like, no shit. Dude. You've been on this show. What three or four weeks you left? I'm gonna go on this show on the bachelor, you come back a month later, and you're like some getting married, of course, any sane dad is no, oh, absolutely. It's also dumb for her to be like I thought my family would trust me executive. Yeah. Reality show, find a husband. Yeah. Well, apparently while this was airing there was a 'nother show that while she was shooting the show another shows airing where she was like another dating show. So she's very clearly just trying to get on TV. Oh, though, she's on it. Yes. She was like on another show like dating another guy. I so whatever. So, and then I guess the drama was during the season that she was saying like, I don't know if I'm ready for marriage, and then the girls at wanted to marry him try to. Tell him. Like yo that bitch. Ain't ready. She's lying to you. And it it's every every season. It always goes down like that. Like, the girls are really about it. But they're like twenty eight you know, and it's always like the young shake who's not ready and the dues like, no she so hot. She. I mean, she's she could be ready. She said she could be ready. I can convince her to be ready just so high just can't. She'll be ready, dude. She'll be trust me. Miniature your old astronaut you're talking about. I'm your age shut the fuck up grandma. She can be read. This is like such dude shit. Just totally believing this horsh it and. So she says, you know, I just don't know. I'm ready in. I don't have my father's blessings. I just don't be. I want you to have you. That's why it's your father's blessing. I want you to have what you want which is just the best way to tell someone. I'm not into you. I want you to have what you want. Yeah. No. I'm doing this for you. Yeah. Yeah. This is a site. Don't you don't. I don't deserve you. Yes. You're so good. I want you to happy, and I'm not gonna make you happy. Which is funny because that's the same speech. He gave the other girls. So he breaks down, and he does like this flick and super juvenile shit re's. I'm done. I I want ending the show. I am done. And he just he just like starts the walkaway from the set and they're like cult in stop. And then he hops a fence. And they're like, oh my God. Yeah. Dude that I've seen that clip. He just hopped at fuck. And and that happened last season. No, no, no. No, no. But they always do their new shit. Now is yes, finding the unscripted shit and making it's like scripting unscripted shit and making it seem like it's unscripted. Yeah. That's our new shit. What happened last season with the with the with the fight? Yeah. It was seemed like a fiber the dude rolled over in his sleep and like fell through a table. No, not that. I mean, the one of the last episodes where he breaks it off with the girl that he proposed to or whatever. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Awkward fight at the end of the show. Awkward conversation. Yeah. That dude Ari. He he proposed to a girl and then took it back took it back and then went to another girl same shit. They do that. Now every fucking time. They find these moments where the producer's like, yes. This is good. Because if something if some like unpredictable shit happens where jumps a fence people go ape shit for that. Yeah. Well, that that seems to be the progressing thing. Because like it was Larry's is the host again. First of all he can't they you could tell the the scripting is just do not not mention his virginity. Okay. Like, the voles is always like Chris Harrison like so dramatic livable plane. He goes the studios silent. Everyone's crying. He's like. That moment was as hard to watch as it was to experience I can attest to that. What happens? Now what happens to Colton in his proposal, even more important his virginity? Find out when we come back. And it's just like you said that you saw like these two girls like break like they're like what? What? It's like almost verbatim. He's had enough food. Yeah. Fuck this, man. Walk up our show. Go fuck yourself. Well, that's the best parts of the offense. And you hear all these is going. Oh, my God you have defense. Call in Colton the dude cuts to Chris goes. Oh my God. He just hop that fucking fence. It's like, yeah. No shit. How did we get it open? And they can't figure out how to get it over for like thirty seconds than someone like hits book in a remote, and you just slowly opens. And then the lack like he's gone the last God forever. If there's no Centeno. That's what's Larry's about it. Everyone has a sense of urgency minus Chris the host. He's just like hands and pockets, he just like kind of like shuffles through the fence as opening he goes. Wow. He's gone. I don't know where you went this crazy. Yeah. Yeah. That's that's basically. Man. It's crazy. It's just like of here. Sparks a blunt. They like, then they get these. Listen, but he's bible bangers. Don't fuck. This. Is fuck. He's really gone. Oh, I gotta go look for them. They really jumped the fence higher. Let me face this shit real quick. Look at that. Road. Somebody pick that up. Do I can guarantee you before they started shooting that scene? They're like, all right. When he jumps a fence all the pe- as you gotta shout. Oh my God. Does seem like you're actually like well. Yeah. Or even if they eighty art it in. Yeah. Yeah. Probably. Yeah. No, do it. So combat. When he's like storming off. He's got like this little kid face like like pushing his lips on his tongue in like he like moesha's a camera like away. But it's the most gentle like or I know this things like sixty thousand dollars. So I'm just going to gently. Yeah. Yeah. I'm just gonna stop. It is kind of like a until then he goes on these there's there's some miscellaneous object. It's like some wooden toy. He just smacks. It's like, it's just the least angry thing like. Version anger right there. Yeah. That's that is holding back holding no need sex. Yeah. So then he said he gets about a block away, and they make this dramatic thing. And then he's like, I'm done. I'm I'm done. And Chris like so you want to call off the whole thing. He's a. Yeah. I do I'm done because a twenty three year old wooden. Mary you. Yeah. Yeah. You're a bitch. Oh, man. So then he goes asleep any wakes up, and he honestly, dude, the this girl tails, you he breaks out with her, and it's the most sane break-up. I've ever seen on TV. What do you mean? She he liked goes to like her unit like her little her little villa. And then she'll she high, and he's like can I talk to you. And she's like, yeah. Then he sits down, and he like gives her spiel, I just, you know, I can't make you if my heart. I came make you believe I'm if I'm half in. And I just I don't wanna do that to you don't deserve that and your and she just like kinda bites her tongue. She's like can we talk without all these cameras. She looks right at the camera and says that he goes Yash Rosen they go in and then he starts crying like the fucking selfish. This dude is like so up his own asks. So what you can still hear what they're saying. Yeah. Because their labs are Ozzie, but they. You know? So then definitely plan that I mean, maybe I don't know she seemed pretty like she just forgot that her Mike's onto same shit right now. No, I think it was just that she didn't want to be seen crying the hammer because she kept like all the cuts of her like you could tell like editor had nothing to work with every cut of her was looking away from the camera. Okay. I think this bitch is doing like the the Neo like three sixty. Yeah. All tastes just give. Just look. She's like, no. No, no. So he starts crying a guy. 'cause you know. Oh, sorry. He he he such a good guy that he would cry. Yeah. Yeah. Doing touch with his emotions and he's. Yeah. So then she starts having to console him. She's like, it's okay. It's okay. You know, I old is this girl. I mean, it's like twenty eight this is those. I mean. Yeah. And she's like been through. Yes. Should he divorce? Yeah. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. So. She actually has. Okay. Yes. So she she's fucking. She knows how life is. Yeah. So she, you know, she's like lay you know, she takes. She lays him down leaves him with closure. And then she breaks down. By herself, you know, like with the door closed. Okay. Now, whatever then she leaves. And usually, so then the next girl she doesn't do it. The next girl does. Okay. Which is hilarious. I like how this all spawned from passive aggression. Yeah. Because I'm going somewhere with this wanna take a quick break L. Yeah. And then we'll get back to. Yeah. Runs like end this bachelor podcast right now. This is I love talking about the bachelor. How much fun and not watch it and then make fun of piecing this shit together in my head.

So anyway, so the girl she. You know, she she's super levelheaded about it. She's been through the bullshit before she lays him down. Like a champion is cool. She takes off then Colin goes up to goes to break with the next girl. And I start I am like almost hysterical because it's like this girl. What let me just get some logistical stuff. Sure. Me just because I'm confused. So this is the finale so he knows the girl that he's gonna propose to and so he's breaking up with other girls now. Yes, because no, yes. Oh, yes. So the girl leaves the one the young girl leaves Cassie guys Twenty-three, very Twenty-three-year-old name. Cassie a cath when he ate will be Cassandra. Yeah. Exactly. Exactly. Yeah. Sondra? Yeah. They used to go by Cassie. He's called me Cassandra. Yeah. So Cassie takes off. I am twenty three. I want to be on TV. I'm actually I'm going to spring break right now. So I gotta debt. Yeah. So Cassie leaves? And then tak- is the next one that you break so tasers the the mature. Yeah. And then I forget the. Africa that third. One's name is like a Becky your. I don't fucking anyway. So she this girl. I'm hysterical because it's like she only has about ten words. In terms of like how she's reacting to the situation, and she seems to be two sentences behind everything he saying. So he'll be like, you know, I just. I can't be in this. If I know him half inning of my heart is for someone else. I cannot be in this treating you. As though you were a backup plan, just not something. I can do. She look at him and go. I was I was just so happy to see you. And he's like. He's not here though. Yeah. Other. So he started like repeating and he's like, I know I know and just again like I can't I can't move forward knowing that. And he like. I just I'm so shocked. I just didn't think we wouldn't be together. He's like, I know. That's why I'm again, just jump back code. I says what I said is that Lena my heart's not fully in it. And it's it's for someone else. So just to circle back. We just had such a good time. I don't see where it went wrong. Okay. Well, just to again, I'm gonna mention. Loop back here. Just so it's doing this for a while. And she keeps saying like, I just I like, I didn't think I thought I was just so happy to see you. And she just keeps repeating that. She was so excited to see him. Like, yeah, we get it to the other girls were to motherfucker. And then this is where he's where he's like. Oh, oh, wait, you were excited to see me. Okay. Never mind. We're going to give let's do here. Yeah. Here. Hop this on your finger. So here's where his crying stops being like real to me. He just starts breaking down. And I'm like, I was this like your get out of jail free card, you pieces shit. Like, do you just, you know, he just like, then he starts then the the super juvenile moment where she is crying, and he's crying and she's going if that'd be disease. I don't and he's going what am I doing? And they're just I'm like, all right? All right. Get a producer in here. Break him up something. So he's crying. And he keeps going what am I doing? What am I doing what am I doing? And then a roughly he just kinda stands up. And he's like, okay, I'm gonna go. It's like a very cold moment where he just like, it seems like he hits the switch act over and he's like Iran, then he goes out in the hallway starts crying some more than a PA comes out to him. She's like are you? Okay. I'm like, oh, this is how he just sucks them in for all I know he's gonna marry the PA after this show is done. Because he's such a goddamn virgin. And he's just like she was there for me it all my weakest moments. I think I need to not in something that's going to be her big virgin energy, man. Yeah. So he starts crying. He's holding onto her. And then she like a UK's like, no, I'm scared. I'm like of what? You played in the fucking NFL you've lined up and looked at the meanest scariest humans on earth. But you're afraid of fucking love. No. But it's also, you know, what it also is. It's also like what are you scared of hurting people is that what it is? I don't fucking you. Why did you go on the bachelor then? Yeah, you knew you were going to date fifty girls at the same time. What do you think is going to happen? That's gotta get hurt. This is also the part that kills me is when these girls would be like, I never thought it would be. You had the odds were so dead as clear is one out of X bitch, and you who are part of eggs. You can do probability bits. I know you can't know. That's simple ability. Yeah. The probability of getting fucking axed out of three just a simple fraction. Yes. This is third grade shit already three point three three three three three percent when you're typing boob. Listen, your calculator anyways. So so this I say all this to lead up to this. So now, he's girls go to these this vicious breakup with Colton the virgin, you know, what I'm saying? I don't know if they were just like a couple of like had like a sweet tooth like wanted to take his virginity, which one of them was like she got nixed early on. And I think that was for thanks to the I want his virginity. It's man. So whatever I think some of these girls want to be the ones to dethrone him. No longer make him the virgin took it whatever dethrone him. Yeah. You flower him you mean or d him off the throne of his and make him a dirty is he sitting right? And he's the king of the virgin. Yeah. And they make him. He's sitting there is delicate delegating. Yeah. Yeah. Urgence? Yeah. Yeah. So that's that's big virgin energy right there. BV MPV big virgin energy. So now because he walked off the show. He hasn't talked to it's a bachelor experience like we've never seen before the keep saying and this because he walked down the driveway in jumped yet and Johnson fence here. So this full hasn't talked to these girls since that day. So now he's gonna face them face to face and the girl tasers she saying shit. So he didn't proposed anyone know as because it's a two part finale. So the rest of it's tonight. But as far as anyone's concern is proposed to anybody. Okay. So he prematurely Jackie lates the show as he would virgin that he is through. So it blows his load early on Cassie whatever ends a show. So now, they're going to talk to him. And he's got this weird new haircut. Looks like a bird's nest is fuck and. Very clearly like, I don't know he's gone through something because he dyed his hair, which is. You know? Yeah. Experience here. So the first girl you is saying shit, and it seems genuine, but it seems like there's this under layer of like, she's like, yeah. You know, the whole experience made me a better woman in taught me what I want. So I just want to thank you for that. It's like, okay. But she's like being real nice. And I don't know like if it's backhanded or I can't tell okay and the second girl comes on. And she just starts. She's like, oh my God. Dude. I wanted to jump through the TV and just roaster. She's like what? You know, it's just really hard. You know, reliving this every day since I left and like I'm walking around. And I know it's like part of the experience or whatever. But like everyone's coming out to me. Like, can I see your engagement ring? And I just want don't like I don't have it. And I'm like, oh, boo. Fucking who also who is asking you that. Oh in your small town of whatever the fuck some random fuck and candy shop owner comes up to you like did you get married? Like who gives a fuck? Oh, you're sad that we want you out of three other girls didn't fuck and make it and you don't get a wedding ring on, oh, we should all cry for you shut the fuck up and she gets home. She walks in the front door and her family has like a happy engagement sign. They're all party, hats, balloons, and book and. I got some bad news all start crying. Culture it right there. You didn't you didn't get chosen by the bachelor. Yeah. I just I could not feel bad for someone putting on the waterworks trying to get their own TV show. You got the million Instagram followers? You did your thing you, that's the reason why you're on the show. Yeah. Then she then she hits with all that bullshit, passive aggression. And she's like, you know, real open about it. And she like fucking like just you know, she like interrogates him for a minute. And I, and I I commend I commend him in one capacity for being like, you know, I stand by what I did. And I knew those moments we're going to be hard. So yeah, it was hard for me to. So I understand, but I like commended in for not giving in. Yeah. It'd be like, yeah. I didn't wanna fucking sit there and do that shit either sucks. Yeah. To do it thirty times suck. Yeah. So like. What is this about you? This is about me. Okay. Imagine what happened to you. I had to do that times five. All right. Feel bad for me. I'm a virgin haven't even had said it does what it just felt like this massive God damn pity party. But she just hit just serving him was so much fucking backhanded shit. She was like, yeah. You know like after that. I realized I need someone to like love me. You know, I want someone to jump over a fence for me. But the one thing I will say which was called as fuck that. She said she goes, you know, I I kind of understand your feeling, and you know, I I don't want to have to put it this way. But what Cassie did to you? That's what you did to me. And so I get it wanting to fight for someone and being so into someone that nothing would stop you. And I was just like. Kinda kinda cold. Yeah. Like in the midst of her fucking bullshit boohoo story. I'm like that was hard though that those bars right there, and he was just like oh. Yes. I didn't think about it. Like that. Yes. He was just so. Who'd was Cassie out the show. So that's what we find out tonight. Okay. Ready? She's going to be finally be ready, and he's gonna propose the Cassie. That's my prediction. I think she's just I think they're going to have like a like a relationship. I don't think they'll like, you know, nothing is going to be on some bullshit like, oh, wait for her a weight, and she's gonna milk him for all his worth. And then got not literally. Yeah. Yeah. No. No. No. And then she's going to get off his nuts, or like, you know, once it expires, she'll go to the the the re the new season of the real world booking digits. And then she'll go he's on love island, America. There you go. There you go. Yeah. Then she has to be twenty and fucking light. I'm cathy. I was on the bachelor. But now it's time to let loose that. You just fucked six guys on TV on the first day. Yeah. Then he's just crying and his. So we talked about that. Right. That like love island. But the American version there all versions. Yeah. You know, I was just thinking, you know, we gotta do. I wonder I wonder if you could train a robot with NLP you feed. It you feed it every pass bachelor winner you feed? It exactly what they said everything that they said and you train a robot. Oh, it's like Twitter accounts that you need and train them. Like, an speaking a certain style. And it goes into goes into the bachelor and wins it. Yeah. Because it just says all the shit that you have to say to get to the top that would guarantee it could probably work. Yeah. It could definitely were. Yeah. You would need Cantu answers. Like when he went to break up these women. All you could. I bet you just watched patch pass bachelor seasons. It was just like what they said girls on the final day. It was like all right. And was going to do that with the put it is not even that difficult to figure that out. I mean, it's just that's all he ever says is in the early stages. You know, he goes, you know, I'm in this for marriage and with where we're at. I just can't see myself getting there with us. And I'm sorry. But I have to let you go. It's so funny because some girls like we're like they would like I just want to tell you that. I love you. And he's like. Yeah. I'm up to send you home. And he just doesn't doesn't faze him like some of the girls that are just like well. Okay. And he's like can I walk you out? Like, let me get you the fog Attia. But yeah, I'm I'm sure I'm sure yet. Apparently there was one season of the bachelor where you could either get a million dollars or marry the person. And there was a dude who it that was his thing from day one. He was like I'm going for the money, and he was open about it to all the guys are minute for the money, and like the they would try to tell the girl and he's like not fucking their fullest shit like that. And he Concer all the way, and he got the fucking money got the money to what season was that. I don't know. I think the only did it once, and I think it was such like a for their demographic was God's lucky and what? So what happens in in those seasons of guy does the guy still propose? Yes. So what it is is like they both propose that she has to figure out what? No, it's like that love island shit where they can they can choose, you know, like they like write it on a card, and that's like do you want the money or do you want to get married? No. I just mean like this bachelorette in general. How does the end episode usually go? Oh, yeah. Like someone proposes and it's like this happily ever Agar shit when she doesn't propose to the guys does. She know. No. It's like, it's they propose. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I mean like they end up getting they still end up getting on one knee. Yeah. It was like she chooses like I wanna be with you. Okay. Yeah. Actually, that's I think the guys have the option to decline like they don't have to propose in theory. Yeah. Like, essentially, they they're supposed to. Yeah. It's also kind of crazy like I think this is just I guess the bigger thing. I noticed about the bachelor I think when they started it it was like definitely a middle America type of show. And now that it's bigger, and you know, they're getting maybe a younger audience. That's. Crazy part when you look at these live events. It's like a lot of young women. You know, and I don't know if they're just paid to be there be no, no, no. Every every person that I know watches that show. Yeah. So I think although. Yeah, I guess we're not not anymore. But no. But I I mean like twenty two twenty three. Yeah. But I think now ABC is granted ABC is like, they're family oriented network. But I think they're having to figure out how to mold till like a younger audience. So I feel like every the last few seasons. Just keep being these situations where the marriage is soured. You know what I mean? Yeah. Yeah. And I don't know if they're just trying to reflect how like we look at marriage. That's a good conspiracy theory. You know, like they're like, they're they're saying like, oh young people don't think marriage is like the end all be all or like, whatever they think it always supposed to go bad. Yeah. So maybe we make bad. So I don't know. I bet you. That's true. I think the smart theory, and I bet you strengths. I think there's a there's some I think there's like a tinge to you know, what I'm saying. Like, some part of that whether it produces a, yeah, we kind of have to everything. Yeah. Everything. Yeah. For sure. It's a, you know soda. That's my. Thanks for tuning into the bathroom five gal. I got the bachelor conspiracy podcast. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I don't know. I think watching that shit and being someone who's not in. It is super interesting. Yeah. Like watching all the cut points and watching like, the manufacturer this horsh it and like racking, my brain thinking, how does anyone engage this and think it's real, you know, like if you watch the bachelor, but you wanna criticize wrestling kiss my ass with that. Because I believe wrestling before I believe fucking the bachelor because at least in wrestling, like, it's it's physical, and you know, backstage like do not like each other than that that feeds into wrestling. That's true. The bachelor is a thousand percent, right. You go over there. Yeah. Are we're going to zoom into you looking into these flowers. Yeah. Saying like, it's jumped that shit dude soon as suze action jump that fucking infants. Yeah. Yeah. PA's as are going to go nuts. Yeah. So, you know, whatever men big virgin energy. So man, we are. Or two weeks out from going back on the road two weeks two weeks. He's no time to work on anything. Yeah. I well. No. We weren't on some stuff. You've got a little. Yeah. But like like, I wanna finish it and shoot a video for everything. And and I don't know this Friday is going to be I am posting two weeks come this Friday. And if I want to do this for this video it's going to be another week. It's just like you blink in three weeks or gone. Yeah. People don't like waiting three weeks for a video. I don't like waiting three weeks for videos when people I watch affiliate. I mean, I'm going. I I finally got the low island shut going up, and it's just been like a slow start since we got back like getting everything up and running. Yeah. I've been I've been cranking on twitch though. And I mean, that's why like twitches easy to get back into. You just flip on the camera and go by the way before I forget, we do have some tickets still available for Clinton. I think. Yeah. Just like a few and. Yeah, a couple of the IP tickets in like we Syracuse. Something that we our our our agent, Scott some scalper tickets recalled. Yes. So we've put him back up.

And it's gonna be a fun one. I'm order a laugh Mike's we're going to do it from the couch. It's going to be like his video you sent me for the what a Asarco gone interrupted you. None of that say I'm just saying like we're going to order laugh Mike's and we're going to do from the couch again, it's going to be good ole fashion like the first one. Yeah. Don't want to be a classic. You know? And and we wanted to worry about the audio because we'll be Mike the clean that any by good ones. Good laugh, mice. Yeah. That's a good person. Yeah. Just run them right into the eight six it'll be it'll be styling at we can get animated with the hands. Dude gonna say the video that you sent me for potential cringe. Oh, my dad is a good. I mean, I didn't I didn't get to devore it either. I think we have to watch it. Okay. And that like, I think we react to it. When you get back from Chicago. And just see how it goes. Yeah. And it was wack than we could trash, but we might we might have won, ladies and gentlemen. This one is low views. If we do this like we got it like, you know, what I'm saying. We'll clown him. But we got a, you know, we got to be a little nice. Yeah. Okay. Okay. Okay. Because he he's not making that. Yeah. It's definitely is. Definitely funny. Okay. I don't even want to spoil any at. All. Right. All right. All right. All right. We'll see it's the, ladies and gentlemen. So that now, you know that there's one may be in the war was my because it's been it's been too long. It has in much too long. Yeah. And we need to get one. We need to get one going again. I don't know why like, you know, the more the more we do in the more. They get views and shit like that it like I hate the way that works where like more popular gets the more nervous. You are that the next one better. And it's like it shouldn't be like that. It's just like any should be say any fucking show anything some episodes are better than some other ones. We just got to keep doing this one might be an opponent play. You know, exactly what we found out that. What was the mom's favorite? Mom's favorite like we had four different mom's on tour like to us in VIP. And be like, I I love the pony play one. Yeah. And we're like you guys are freaky. Yeah. That's because you've seen some shit. Yeah. They actually said we love the pony play one. They winked and lick their teeth. Well, what no? If you wanna if you wanna bring my lips later young man, come on by young main in Maine is actually Matthew mcconaughey and a women's mask young. May you know, may won't you come over. Just I'm just trickling in Jackson, Maine. Came down with the dead nece come down with the business of barely fucking here. What he's saying Knowles show. Yeah. Yeah. Game Dan with the dead nece out. He's mumbling. By disturbed down with the cygnus. Someone that's cover that down with Jackson main voice. The tune is. It charted, dude. I've been smoking a Ganga smoke in the devils the devils Pugh. Yeah. Oh, I don't know. My fucking man out says says on earlier, but like working on that shit it. I don't know. Because it maybe it's because it wasn't like a serious thing. Yeah. You know? So for I guess, I don't know. So I wrote some music everybody. But like, you know, Spock, and I would just came in. And I was just like, I treat it more. Like, all right. I'm just going to just write something. That's like there's no sort of like it's going to go here. And and I'm gonna I don't even know if I'll put it out. I'm just going to write something you right here. So how it started with Spock made another beat and the B was kind of cool, and I just started. I was I had some stuff that I had written while we're on tour. Yeah. I just have like a notes thing Lanham as bars. So I started stitching some of it together. Only like a couple bits. And then he liked changed the beat a little bit. And I go who that's dope. And I just start cranking out like I kinda scrapped the other stuff. And it just kinda starts like moving together. So then I like rightful sixteen and then I came up with that chorus to that other beat I listened to it for few days only is is ask because this be better. So I dug up that old beat the one that is currently on. And then. It was like, I I I did the first thing that had written. And I the first sixteen I wrote, and I said, I just doesn't really fit. So then I went with the previous lyrics. I wrote. And then I go wait a second. And then I like drop it in like later with Kyla with that high energy tone. And then it just like it all kind of started clicking together. It's all go in and make some adjustments to it. But I don't know. It was just like I think I say all that to say this. I think working on something that was like does no pressure for it to be uploaded somewhere. It was purely just like like, I don't know like getting shit therapeutic. Yeah. Yeah. Totally. It's just like getting something off my chest. And it's just like in a confined space. I don't know that took my anxiety down like a like, I can't describe the feeling like working on it. I just I could feel my fucking brain of this makes sense like coming to earth and just like my fucking heart rate seen a slowdown. Like, I don't know. And I just felt fucking good. So I don't know if it's just like. I need to do those things like where I I make something that there's no pressure. I don't know. Yeah. I mean, it all it. I think it also is just maybe it's probably because actually partially like. Being creative just for the sake of being creative. Yeah. And like following the process like I was just thinking, it's it's fucking amazing. How? We're because like I feel like we're constantly like, and this is everyone, right? Like, if there's something you wanna do your it's it's a burden that thought of like, yeah, I wanna start this. I wanted to do this thing. I want to it's amazing. How much just putting one little thing on paper will do for the whole like unraveling the whole process of his church lead through with it. You know, like even you writing down these bars just random fucking bars. And then at least you have that on something on paper. Yeah. So that when you step into studio, whatever you're like, whoa. I mean, it's not as it's not as intimidating to to start. Something already have this thing written down and you fucking like that's the only thing. I noticed. What that with the with the beat? I'm I made for the song. It's like once I had that little riff down the first thing beat just fucking road itself. Crazy. Yeah. But it was like just getting started on that was the hardest part that I fuck eight bars. Yeah. And and I was going to say, I think like just to put it in music terms. I mean, it's like anything writing jokes. Whatever it's like, I'm thinking about this. Like, I thought this thing would be funny. Yeah. I think maybe the I don't know the point of it all is that like to have like that little eight bar just sitting in your head like gnawing away. You like I wanna do this thing. I want to do this thing. And like, you know that feeling when you're like I haven't done it yet. You start making yourself feel like shit because you Don. Yeah. Yeah. Even before unraveling. It's like I think even like like training yourself to just like if you're doing some creative just put it down even that. I think just takes such a fuck in load off. Yes. Like, okay. But but then it's amazing. What happens from there absolute is then you look at that. And you're like, wait that words wrong. Cross it out whatever. Oh, actually this road rhymes offs on your writing. Yeah. Yeah. You're with anything if you wanna start a business if you wanna do fuck in anything in life just do just just start with something to do. So sent an Email sent an Email to a person that is experienced in whatever you're trying to do. Just like. Yeah. What's good? Yeah. How do I get started anything in the smallest fucking thing? So I told just turn into something bigger. So it's all you know, he say same thing. Like, we get questions all the time. I want to start this only get on stage on this. And that was like, then do it. Yeah. Like, the very first time, you do anything. It's gonna sucks you don't care about the quality you need to just go do it. Yeah. To know how to get better. Or even like, yeah. If you're thinking about getting him, say just. A joke writing something down on paper. Write a knock knock joke down or something. Yeah. Yeah. Whatever you once you had sat on paper. You're oh, wait, actually, I could turn this into something on my own, blah, blah of often you have a written jokes. True. That's waiting to be said into a microphone. It's gonna make getting up on stage seem a little bit less. Yeah. Thousand percents meeting. So. Yeah. I don't know. How all them. I think I'm gonna pop in on Friday and try to like rap rap the song. And then if I can I don't know I got another. Stood out to your point. I got another idea for a song, and the more personal those see if I can catch fire within if I can't, you know, whatever. But I think I'll put out the other one. And then I don't know we'll at I don't know if just like writing music may be something that I do on and off to like 'cause I feel like I just have so much up here. I think putting it down somewhere as good versus like, I don't know. I don't know if yapping at therapist is the way to deal with them. And I think maybe this is a better way to deal with it. If it's just like, no. Yeah. Once once a year, I can put out a single. Yeah. And so little more personal. But at least I feel like it's like energy has gone somewhere. Not to be all whatever I don't wanna be cheesy about to do a song called therapy there of heated where it's the whole thing is like is from your therapists perspective, boom, dude, are you logic. That's some low yell. Real. So you know, this podcast. I love listening to you. How I built this guy razz guy, which which by my my fucking guy. Yeah. Yeah. Which by the way, funny story about this. So the last time I talked about this was talking about the podcast. I did an impression of guy rats. Okay. Some girl tweeted at guy razz and said my impression was really funny because he's insufferable or some shit said that in tagged me in it. I fucked. I love guy rise. I think he's just funny, dude. You know, I think it's like. It's very easy to make fun of. Yeah. And now this this girl tagged me in a hate tweet about guy, and he saw it. He fucking replied to it. And he goes, and he said like wall, not everyone likes my style, blah, blah, blah. And I'm like, well that Knicks my chance of ever being on that fucking show. Oh, right. So anyways, I met that girl. She came to be I p I'm the one that did the guy razz tweet, and I was like through. Oh, yeah. Yeah. That was so funny. It'd be built this. Regardless of the fact that I don't have a billion dollar company. It's his tweet that's gonna keep me off. That's it. That's it anyways. So the newest episode of this podcast came out, and it's fucking. So it's like normally it's companies, right?

But the Lisa is incredible. As well Lisa's mission is to provide a better night's. Sleep for everybody in from day one. They set out to create a company that had heart. It's one of the reasons we love working with them so much and one of the things they do is they donate one mattress for every ten that they sell through organizations that working causes like foster care prevention. And today they've donated more than thirty two thousand majesty's through more than one thousand nonprofits, plus one they donated one the Miami who has Alzheimer's in a memory care unit, which was very cool of them Rb p gang.

Many people are saying this use the pillow. I love the pillow their blankets are tastic as well. L E S A dot com slash Rb. VP promo code Rb p if you knew to our show the Rose Bowl in podcast every episode is broken down into segments, which you can find below with time cues in the description, the idea being that perhaps you're not interested in listening to me talk about Ken Griffey juniors. Third major league at bat. That's not a segment we ever done. But just what popped into my head. Just now. I don't know. Why who does maybe you're not interested in that just skip past it? I don't give a fuck is long. As you're, you know, listening to the things that you are interested in it's fine. If you need to get past something for the sake of time, maybe you're in the car and you've only got twenty minutes. I that's the whole point. It's so that you can digest and enjoy the show at your leisure without being too lost on what it is. We're talking about or what the fuck is going on. And if you ever are you can just skip to the next segment, and boom, you're caught right? The fuck back up. So obviously again, you don't have to listen to any of the hundred and fifty five episodes that have come before r p one fifty six in order to enjoy it. But if you like the show, go back get caught. Listen to the mall hundred and fifty five other episodes of full of interesting content for you to absorb like stuff about animals in serial killers ninjas pirates, and then even some real life advice from not just myself. But from people who are much wiser than me that I've brought on the show to share things with you. So here's a little anecdote a personal anecdote of mine to say, thank you for the non skippers did not skip through the intro because the show is important. I want to thank you guys with a little bit of information that these skippers will never have Iran two miles this morning, and I sweat like a horn church, and I do not sweat. Wow. Yeah. You're a noted non sweater. Oh, noted nonce web, oy. And I was it was you know, when you take your shoes off and your socks or soaked know that feeling. Yeah. It's it's uncomfortable. It's very uncomfortable. I had that. But I'll say this after the, you know, when you get a run in if you're in shape and your runner, you get the runner's high pretty much immediately and the payoff pretty much immediately. It feels great you feel great about yourself for fresh. You can breathe better. Just ready to go kick ass. That was not how I felt after my run this morning, Mike. It was quite the opposite. In fact, I couldn't really fucking Bree heading Ziobro because my heart was going faster when when you're anxious person or when you have panic disorder like I do and you don't keep up with your shit. You don't run few times a week like you're supposed to and maybe you take a couple of weeks off and go to the beach and just crush delicious food like I did you're gonna have trouble. The next time you go out, and you try to do something active. And when you get your heart rate up and your breath going faster it fucks with your head a little bit because you're not used to it anymore. So it did give me some which sucked. But like after twenty minutes, I felt a million times better than I did before Iran, which was fantastic. And it's the reason that I love running so much that I need to tell myself to go more often need to get back in the groove. But the point is then I journaled for ten home minutes as per my agreement with MRs Mercedes Terrell and Mike from yesterday's episode Rb p one fifty five it was very very weird. It was just me fr. Handwriting just train of thought like spewing that shit onto the page, and it got ridiculous. But it was for sure therapeutic, and I'm going to send out that journal entry in its entirety unedited to the entire Rb p newsletter subscription base this evening. So yeah. If you're not subscribed to the Rb p newsletter you can go to Ross Bohlin podcast dot com.

And I thought it was extremely helpful for me, just you can kind of get an idea of how journaling works if you want to.

To ask you can't afford it or tried to use that quote in I attributed incorrectly to super troopers that's beer fest. Baby that's beer fest, which is funny because I should know this first of all because I've seen beer fest like one hundred fifty times, and that's not an exaggeration. It's like probably the movie I've seen more than any other movie in my life. And there's a reason for that every Thursday for like an entire semester and a half in college me and a buddy name Matt Hawkins shutout. The Hawkins wherever you are out there. We used to we used to watch beer fest as a pregame ritual. Every single bureau is not a great movie. It's not even that funny. Frankly, it's it's not like super super super troopers as much better everything with broken lizard, went downhill after after super troopers, no offence to those guys. I think that the that super troopers is one of the funniest movies ever made in if you make one of the funniest movies ever made you must be pretty fucking good at what you do. So beer fest is more fun than it is funny. It's just ridiculous. It's an absurd comedy. That revolves around binge drinking the entire time. So obviously, it's great for when you're in college and you're trying to pre game and get motivated get fucked up and blackout. So that's what we do literally every Thursday. It was the way I got my weekend started for like a year and a half watching beer fest when my friend Matt weird story, but when I had to share nonetheless, speaking of weird shit, let's move into this first segment before move on. But before we move on the guys of broken lizard, having new show like a television show. Yeah. No. I just saw a banner ad for this. And I clicked it. There's a show on TRU TV called Tacoma FD. In which I can see the guy who played Fara and one of the other guys and somebody else. Okay. Are they doing like Reno nine one one? But with firemen, that's apparently what this appears to be because that's sounds so on paper like the greatest idea ever. But Reno nine one one was fucking hilarious and going for the exact same spin with firemen. I don't know if it's exact same. But that's interesting. Thank you for that. And also did you see super troopers to fuck? No. I did why watch it one night because I like super troopers and then super trouper. Stu was available on demand. You gotta know better, dude. It was not good. You gotta know better. You never ever ever watched the sequel to a comedy, I've never seen the dumbers the single worst. I seen in the history of any movie. I don't even want to know, it don't watch the first thing and then quit on it. Because there are some movies a little bit better. But anyway, we'll move on. Okay. Dumb and dumber two or dumb and dumber. Or whatever the one with them was old guys. Never watched that. I never watched zoo. Lander to the only exceptions are, of course, ace Ventura when nature calls. I don't even see that. As a sequel didn't have to in it nods, a sequel, but it was actually good your balls are showing whatever let's do this first segment, the triangle dance start off with a little goofy fun talk, shall we? Saw it on Twitter last night as I usually am. And I was in the little fucking discovery section or the moment section or whatever it's called. And it was like, the triangle dance is here in people are nailing it, and I was like all right Twitter. You win click on this. And this is the latest fucking internet Meam, sin sation. It's a dance, I suppose you could call it a dance you essentially jump forward. You jump backward than you jump left than you jump back to where you were. Then you jump right? Then you jump back to where you were. But you do it with your hands on to other people show this you're in a in a triangle with two other humans, and it's something of a fucking reminds me of the little kid dances. The flaws dance all the fortnight dances. These kids. Do this is something that revolves lives in that same world. Except for whatever reason it is caught fucking fire and everyone in their mom has been doing this for like at least twenty four hours. Now, I don't know why we as humans constantly are in need of something like this to what was the name of that challenge back in the day where we actually ended up fucking doing one of them at one point grandad's. But there was a challenge where everyone was frozen in a song played. Yes. Yes. Yes. There was the black Beatles song. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Would lag Beatles song challenge. I'm so good at Google. It only takes one time mannequin challenge this that was stupid. It was very sterile stupid. But what's interesting is that they all somehow end up like, even that's the one that we did the manikin challenge. We did at grand ex we did it with our whole company, or whatever I wanna work that day. But they did it. I wasn't there for this. Yeah. Yeah. We neither of us there. But I would have done it had been there just for the shit of it, even knowing it was Idi Arctic, and I was making fun of it. Because it was like everybody. Did it everybody? Did it everybody did the mannequin challenge in this is sort of like that? It's it's for whatever reason something that everybody feels they can participate in takes little to no athletic ability, and or physical activity or movement, you could be fat stupid and blind and do this dance. And that's just fine. Whatever makes you happy. If we add a third person, I guess we could attempt it, but we don't internet in class. So we won't I just wanted to point out that if you wanna see many, many, many mostly white people looking like total morons there is an entire Twitter moment dedicated to that that is actually called the triangle dances here, and people are nailing it. There's not a whole lot to nail. Now, I'm scrolling through this page, and what I'm finding is that of course, black people are already putting a better more fun spin on the dance than white people have been able to rather than just jumping forward to the side to the side forward to this. They're mixing shit into it. Which is. Now, it's getting interesting. So if you feel like, you know, having a laugh, or maybe you need to do the triangle danced applause from steam do some movement based dance or whatever the whatever the fuck are the magic our girls. Call it moving on next segment. Nationwide college admissions scandal. Oh, yeah. Big big news today. Very interesting news kinda unfolded over the past day. I guess basically this is the gist of it from the Boston Globe. Dozens of people have been arrested nationwide in what thirties are calling the largest college admissions scam ever, including thirty three parents and a California businessman who allegedly collected twenty five million dollars in bribes to get students into some of the nation's top colleges. Federal prosecutors in Boston say included, wrapped up in the scandal, are many many very very powerful people and wealthy people, including the parents of two Hollywood actresses Felicity who Felicity Felici, Felicity Huffman, and Laurie Laughlin. Oh, yeah. Laurie Lofton we're gonna get to this later. Yeah. As well. As the chairman of a worldwide law firm that guy's probably gonna get disbarred. It is not a good look for him. It is big big trouble. Boston US attorney Andrew e mailing called the list of parents, quote, a catalog of wealth and privilege, unquote. And he said that the parents made payments ranging from a low of one hundred k to a maximum of six point five million to get these kids into these schools through the scam. Another quote from leading says they chose to corrupt in a legally manipulate the system there can be no separate college admission system for the wealthy. Yeah. No shit. Andrew. There can't be a separate college admission system for the wealthy. Good job shutting down. Here's his one guy. William Rick singer. He's fifty eight years old and described by letting as the central defendant in the scheme. He was the one collecting the bribes. He was the owner of edge, college and career network LLC and chief executive of of purported charity known as the key worldwide foundation. Okay. It turns out he. Using that organization to funnel shit jockey. Yeah. Which is be carefully give money to but he's expected enter a guilty plea to charges including racketeering conspiracy. And money laundering today actually about thirteen minutes ago. It looks like from the time of this recording schools implicated in this scheme include gimme all of them. Ross Yale Georgetown, Stanford UCLA UC university of San Diego university of southern California university of Texas at Austin and Wake Forest university big schools. These are not little schools is a big deal to cheat your way into a major these are some of the best schools in the world. More than a dozen college athletic coaches in associates of singers business were charged. Prosecutors said so this thing's going to stretch foreign wide. We'll see if anybody major gets swept up in it. But it's fucking crazy. Letting goes onto describe an elaborate scam in which coaches worked with singer to create fictional athletic success stories for applicants, that's so fucking genius awesome. Including photo shopping, the applicants faces onto stock athletic, images and falsifying their participation in various athletic programs. They were that shameless with it. They were photo shopping children's faces onto like shudder stock athletic images. Mike. That's what we have our interns do for a laugh. They were doing it to get into college fucking crazy applicants recruited for college. Sports teams have a higher chance of getting accepted into the schools the non recruited applicants with the same grades and standardized test scores. So that's a big deal to to pretend you're an athlete when you weren't into Photoshop your face onto onto a stock photo of an athlete leading goes onto say parents sent payments through that nonprofit to eight on profit charity run by singer, the key worldwide foundation, again, that's the one they found the money through which then sent back a letter saying the money was a charitable donation. Allowing the parents to take a tax write off, I love that's the kicker. I didn't realize wealthy white people who who find loopholes in their cheating, and they can't stop. And then it's like one more step and now, it's tax free baby. And it's like now didn't even cost you a dime. It's fucking incredible. This dude allegedly then used all that money to bribe coaches and university officials to get these kids into the schools. So it's not just like this guy was willing to run the scam. Or that the parents were willing to give him money. He was finding corrupt individuals at each of these universities to assist him in getting these kids in. For money. Kids shouldn't be getting in. And as you all know the system for getting into state, universities is difficult. It's they take like the top ten percent. Whatever it gets less. Now. Is it not? I think it's eight percent. Yeah. So that's that's a very big deal. Anyway, they also facilitated cheating on the SAT and a C T exams in exchange for bribes by arranging for or lowering third party to secretly take the exams in place of the actual students. Prosecutors said parents paid singer fifteen thousand dollars to seventy five thousand dollars per test usually structuring the payments as donations to the foundation. That's so fucked up and then senior would bribe test administrators in Los Angeles and Houston, Texas as part of the scheme what a fucking. What a pain in the ass is had to have been to setup even to get. Here's the the craziest thing to me. Is the statement about how oh we didn't know there cannot be different rules for super-rich. Yeah. That's just not true. That's the world. That's how this works. It's you and college divisions for years have been like what's crazy me is they ran in Leverett scam. That that involved all this criminality when you couldn't when you just call up a person on the board of regents make Dory. Shen donation and get your kid into Yale by like you've got six dollars. You're getting your kid into Yale. You make you make donation to the university, and you're gonna get in. You don't have to. Photoshopped pictures and deal with actual tested ministers. That's bananas. It's crazy. 'cause it's like, I mean, no one a lot of rich people growing up. That is absolutely the way that that the super wealthy getting squeezed. Yes. They there's typically money being exchanged in some way, shape or form. If your kid didn't have the grades to get into the school. You're doing something like making a donation or picking up a wall in a building. Or maybe building an entire building many people do that and it works. You don't have to do whatever. The fuck. This was this bizarre scandal that's gonna put an and best to the best of my knowledge money donated universities is tax free. So you don't have to run through a third party charity run by a sketchy guy just to money launder funds. Just give the mind to the school and find a way in if you're Lori Laughlin, you should be able to call someone at USC at the at the like, that's a woman that has this had a long career. You think she's got? Some connections. Yeah. Call somebody at the at the school at USC the film school say, hey, what's it nation? I'm you need to make here to get my daughter in. Or you say I was in full house. I'm still on full house. I'm in fuller house now are yeah. Whatever and even more full house. You know, she was in radd, the movie RAD, do not Lori laugh Laughlin, you have you ever seen the movie read? I have never heard of. Okay. It's it's ridiculous film. It's came out in. I'm looking at the year. Right. Quick nineteen Eighty-six the year before I was born. It's called the Brad, and I might have to do a whole segment on this at some point. But it was an American film about BMX racing. It was mostly wild eighties music playing in one scene. I remember in specific as the main character in the film is is dancing on a BMX bike with his girlfriend. Okay. Fucking riddick. Anyway. Didn't know Laughlin was in that. Which is neat. Speaking of loyal often is in their more to her side of the story. Oh, well, here's here's the best part. So Laurie Laughlin daughter is someone who calls herself. Oh, pull this thing up Olivia Jade, okay? She is an influence her. She has over millions of followers apparently over a million YouTube Livia Jade g newly. Yes, that's our last name. Okay. So apparently, she is sushi moved into her her dorm. She got a bunch of sponsored content by by Amazon like this. She did a whole paid partnership with Amazon. So like it's paying for itself the moment this this parent. You know, the moment the scandal hit, I guess, but the best part is that she has pledged that she. Isn't there? Interested in actually going to school. Yes, she's not there for the education. She made a video last year where she said, I don't know how much school I'm going to attend. And then let me pull up the actual quotes. Because the quotes are the best part. I don't know how much school I'm going to attend. She shared with her nearly two million subscribers. So this is super big man magnitude. Yes, after explaining her extensive work schedule, but I'm going to go in and talk to the deans, and everyone, and I hope that I can try and balance it all, but I do want the experience of like game days partying. I don't really care about school. As you guys know those quotes are being thrown around quite a bit because of her in makes it so much better. Yeah. That she damned earned her way into school. This is something that her mother had to bribe people in in legal plot. Yeah. To get her in the head. You know, as you might imagine her viewers responded with mixed opinions. Although the overwhelming majority, bashed, her privilege and ignorant attitude towards education. That's good. At least we got that going at least the people. That follow this person know, how ridiculous she is one point nine million YouTube subscribers for loyal, oftens daughter and one point three million Instagram followers. I didn't know she existed alleviate Jade, this goes to show a couple of things, I guess just don't go to college. This woman. This girl doesn't need to go to college. No, she doesn't know she she never had to eat if she had zero Instagram followers. Probably, but the fact that she's got two million YouTube, followers and a million half Instagram followers means like she's got a business right now. Right. This doesn't go into learn as a communications major USC that's going to help her in the here's another thing for for wealthy people out there that are like I don't see what the big deal is here. Just keep you fucking mouth. Shut don't say anything like that. And you never get caught or you know, funnel. Then you you. You have to you have to make these videos Ross. That's what you do in your youtuber. Okay, over she said. Yeah. You know, I'm college student now. But my first level always be YouTube was she not which she you can't say stuff like that. Was she not on? Fire fest was she not there because God I wish you the other great thing about it about her Livia Jade is that her initials are OJ, and there's a photo of her in her dorm room in a paid promotional post for Amazon where she's got big like sparkley letters OJ. Oh, and she goes to USC like this should not be allowed this. You can't represent OJ at USC in twenty nineteen. All right. I'm unraveling this little bit more Laurie. Laughlin husband his name Maasim. Oh, gee newly. And that's why Betty's hot. Yeah. Often Lofton Laughlin an attractive woman. You gotta assume he's either hot or rich just based on perhaps it looks like it's both. Anyway, it's neither here nor there the. The those two Laurie and mossy mo- have been accused of paying five hundred grand to USC have their daughters admitted as new recruits to the colleges crew team. Despite the fact that the two women did not participate in crew mica. That's my favorite one. What the fuck? This is so shameless in so awesome. In an already completely fucked up system, the college university system in the United States is is very wack. If you haven't figured that out. I learned like eight things in school in like five years for like sixty grand feel like I just don't know that that's worthwhile. I'm not saying don't go to college. Good colleges. A great for. I didn't incredible time and takes his state of taught me a lot of things none of which involved like the classroom. But it taught me a lot of things. I appreciate my dad put me through school. My parents put me through school, but fuck so much money, man. I just don't know. But it goes back to the. The point that I made earlier anyone who's gone to a big university. He's our prestigious universities by any account. Yeah. There's no one who would go there and went like immediately be surprised by how many of your peers seem to have arrived via rich parents. Yeah. It's doesn't take their long realize. Like, oh, this guy like isn't very smart. But his dad is super rich. That's why he got into the school. Yeah. Like, this guy didn't do better in call in high school that I did if you join a fraternity or sorority it makes the percentage even much much certainly it doesn't take long. You know, if once you're on campus at UT, we know more about UT than most we're in the same city, but like UT for long for long periods of time has had a rock solid top ten percent rule. And I think it's top eight percent now. Or if you're not in the top ten percent of your high school class, you cannot get into UT. That's how right, and so it's unfair to people that go to big, you know, procedures high schools and finish. Like, you know, let's say forty fifth, and they're graduating classes. Four hundred forty and they can't get in. But a kid in east Texas who makes a nine hundred eighteen now, I know SAT scores are three times the other different. Yeah. Makes their below average SAT score, but finishes, you know, ninth out of one hundred kids does get in. Right. So it's always been a big thing. That's happened for a long time. So, but there's always been ways around this. Always I didn't realize this it it involves pain people. This dude did this since twenty eleven so this is like eight years he got away with this and to get up to twenty five million dollars in bribes. Man. I don't know how many different people he had to have helped. But I mean looking looking down this list of numbers like five hundred K from Laughlin Molinari, or whatever his name is fifteen cave for test up to seventy five K per test. I can see how the numbers would add up. But I'm just curious to see what the final total on people who got into schools. They weren't actually supposed to get into. There's gonna be lots of coaches wrapped up in this. Like, I said the sailing. Coach Stanford is already been allegedly pinpointed guys. The it was the tennis coach here UT really was was indicted in some are was a part of this thing and way, also a private soccer club controlled by to USC coaches somehow involved the tennis coach at Georgetown was involved. So if you haven't noticed yet, it's soccer coach UCLA tennis coach in New England, it these aren't the football coach for the record. You know what I'm saying? If you're waiting for like the. Football coach to get swept up. Yeah. This seemed unlikely and this reactor that's not going to happen. Granted if you're fan of LSU basketball. It's too late. It is. But the this there's other too late. Yeah. Yeah. When you're coaches on on on audio talking about accepting bribes or making pain bribes or whatever that is trouble. It's all the different deal. But yeah, this this seems this is just crazy. This is like a really bizarre scandal not one that anyone saw coming now. No way America, the that you, and I know of a household name coach be Mike coach K, or, you know, Patino Gundy under the bus again of Gundy, if I told you tomorrow that hey Ross tomorrow at nine AM news will break on Twitter. The might Gundy has paid has been a part of a a some sort of scandal to pay money to call high school recruits, you want you want it bad. And I know this would not be surprising thing. But if I told you the tennis coach at the university of Texas received one hundred thousand dollar bribe to get to say that kid was tennis player in order to get them into the university. Even though they weren't. Yeah. That's all I couldn't make that stories. What's so fun about this story? Here's a random connection and all comes full circle on this show. Livia Jade gutter Instagram pulled up because full disclosure. I was creeping through it. She's hot and two people that I that. I follow follow this account already. And one of them is Gundy child. Oh, it's my it's my boy. Chefs to the Gundy, Gavin, Gundy, Gavan, yeah. Yeah. I think he's my favorite Gundy. He's got like forty thousand followers, and he's he's doing. All right. He's he's he's at Arkansas, which is a bad ass school. Anyway, shouts again, he comes why in the world does Laurie Laughlin in her husband think that that her daughter needs five hundred thousand dollars again to college. Like literally sounds like she was like mom, dad. I really wanna have the college experience in party and go to football games. And they were like, okay. Honey, we'll see what we can do. And then it costs five hundred K, and they were like, well, we're rich fucked or she's rich. Fuck it. I mean, I doubt she's the one that's a part of a criminal probe. But probably not as she. I'm sure she's compliant. But I'm what I'm saying is nineteen. Can't you can't blame any of the children that are wrapped up now our children. Yeah, I'm not saying if you're in high school, and and you you don't get into the school. You want? Two. And then six months later, all of a sudden you magically got in. That's dope. Sure. No, shade wrote a million dollar check to somebody. What I'm saying is she's nineteen and she's already the actress of famous wealthy act or the daughter of a wealthy famous. Actress have to assume Louis Laughlin store some money if not she's appears to have married a guy who does and she super hot and has two million YouTube fallers money is never going to be an issue for this person. Like kind of over is long. She didn't blow it which again. I don't want to be rude to USC USC other fine college. But this isn't like she got into Princeton or Harvard or whatever like for five hundred K like, let's say her Instagram disappear tomorrow, and she doesn't have a degree for USC is good. But if you have a degree from Princeton like you're getting you're getting in anywhere you want. Yeah. You know, if I have a job interview. And are I'm hiring somebody, and there's a guy who graduated from Princeton and one from USC, I'm picking the Princeton person most likely most likely that that gets you looped in a way that USC probably doesn't wrong. I don't know. I actually don't give a fuck where you went to school like anyway, I don't it's. But but to Mike is point at a lot most corporate, you know, companies they're gonna see those two they're going to pick the fucking Ivy league school every time just because that's the way goes reputation thing. But shouts to J bringing OJ back to you know, shit. What a story. Yes. So this is obviously a lot more complex and detailed in deep than than we're going to have time to go. Oh on this show. But I'm sure this is gonna continue. Oh, yes. You're going to drop here for several weeks. If we have any cool updates will bring them to you. Otherwise, just keep a lookout on the nationwide college emission scandal being reported on literally everywhere right now. Well, and then sorry, I just saw perfect tweet from Dan Wetzel Hewitt, who's a fine journalist who says there are no perfect schools for students just for their parents egos. This is clearly what this is. That's funny. That's good. This is really something. And you know, what you right dude that is what it is. So they could be like actually Jade's was her named Jade, sure. Alleviate Livia Jade same thing Livy is at USC studying biochemistry. That's why. So they can say that shit for five hundred K, I guess price for everything who knows maybe they offered maybe they offered you a million dollars. I wanna take it. So now, we're going let's let's find some black market guy. Maybe it's just fucked up because Laurie Laughlin if. She is now a part of this, which is hilarious. Who do you think? Like her neighbor was was like, oh, we got Caroline into USC. Right. She's got a call up Jim from fucking underworld industries or whatever the doctoral like there this. This thing can can grow for weeks to oh, it's gonna be it's gonna be beautiful especially because he goes back as far as two thousand eleven very much voicing more next segment. Houston rap song of the week this week's Houston rap song of the week is by little KiKi, and it's titled chunk the deuce featuring Paul wall in Yuji. K it's the album minor setback for the major comeback. It came out in two thousand six very much a classic Houston rap song staple of the city that you hear on the radio still to this day. Thirteen years later, low KiKi is one of these like, I don't know if we've done Houston rap song of the week by him before. I don't we featured. But, but I don't know if by him, but he's one of these like, I I would describe him as a c list underground dude who has made a career for like thirty fucking years out of rap, but nobody outside Texas, minus major hip hop heads. Even know this dude is in. If you saw photo of you probably wouldn't bat an eye. You wouldn't be like he's famous. I looked but he is very well connected. Especially in Houston. He's known by guys nationwide. And that are in the rap game for. Sure.

So you may be aware you are where if you heard yesterday's full episode south by southwest, the technology music and film festival. I guess are the three things that mostly encompasses here in Austin, Texas has been going on for many decades is this week and next it is mostly a living hell for Austin, citizens the traffic situation all around town is I'd say thirty percent worse every hour of the day. And it just kind of a huge pain in the ass. You can't go downtown. There are stinky hipsters everywhere from all the different states, including like Brooklyn in California or states, like Brooklyn. You know what? I'm yes. Yes areas. Yeah. Here. I'm just going to interrupt you. Let's let's get started. Do you think this is my segment is this is the Mike is Shona? I went to a party last night. It was for a not going to say the brand. Okay. I'll say it was a. Yeah. I won't say what brand it was. Because my my girlfriend works in PR. Was it a product or a? Yeah. Just leave it. It's a brand. Okay. Okay. And I won't say wellness brand. It's like what are those things that it was a contact lens? Okay. Okay. Whichever name. It is. They had a party, and there were some influencers there. This is what they do by the way, these companies throw parties with their names on them off. That's basically what's up by us at this point. Yeah. And so we were there. And I realized that all the music they were playing was New York rap like from the early nineties. Okay. And all the people there were clearly from either New Yorker LA, and I just realized that you could come to Austin for south by south west. And come from New York, and listen, nothing, but music from New York and eat nothing, but like food from New York, basically, there's nothing special. They were hanging out past appetizers, and it's just it's it's just not really happening anymore. Okay. Here's the thing about south by south west. It's not a festival calls. It a festive. Yeah. It's never festival is never supposed to be a festival when it start. It was a music conference. It's a south by southwest conference. So it starred as a music conference where industry people from from music industry. People would come to Austin. They would find acts and Austin being the live music capital. The world. There's a lot of venues there's lots of places to see music. Oh, yes. E- bands. And like music label. Dudes would come in here. They'd hobnob that come in. And they'd see bands, they'd signed bands. That was the thing that happened like in the early nineties simple enough. Good idea. Yeah. And it sort of grew and then it became there was a film portion of this which which kind of grew got bigger and bigger and bigger. And then there was. The thing in the last ten years the interactive which portion which I guess is that considered a festival or a seminar. Whatever it is. Yeah. The interactive media portion, and so this is like where Twitter got like launched basically, lots of apps launch here. It's shitty apps launch year. Oh, yeah. And then the brands came in in about ten years ago, I'd say it was like peak brand the brands have actually kind of gone down recently, the the south by south west organizers have decided that they don't either wanna be corporate. They don't want to grow the festival overrun the entire city got really out of control there. Yeah. And then there are other things that were happening where people heard there's all these free bands. There's all these free shows free alcohol. There's free food all just come to Austin. Yeah. And it would always overlap with spring break off all the Texas school. So you'd have a lot of people down here this. I think is the first year. We're doesn't overlap spring break. Which is probably good thing. I always thought the idea was to get the UT students the fuck out of the city by having spring break at the same time. Yeah. Unfortunately, there were maybe originally it was. But unfortunately, there were so many people from other coming in in. Yeah. So here's the thing about south by south west. There are a lot of terrible bands here. They're like bad. They're bad bands. There are a lot of bands of trying to get signed. Yeah. Every every bar becomes venue, everyone, and like lots of like, non bars coffeeshops, restaurants, everything. Now, we're in fischel venue. Yeah. So that just means there's like some shitty musician from Nebraska is here playing at at the coffee shop that I like to frequent instead of like my pretty good average musician that plays the coffee shop on Tuesday nights. Instead, I go in for coffee, and there's guy with a guitar and a drum set bass player behind him. And I'm like, this is not what I'm this is not what's happened fucking Braskin in the corner with a digital do over. Yeah. It takes over the whole world of Austin. The whole city has changed because you. Can't be avoided. And then all these all you fucking California people move here as a result. And then the worst is when we have good weather for south by south by essentially runs now. It's like two weeks long, basic. Yeah. The interactive full fucking. Yeah. The interactive starts on Thursday and goes Thursday to Monday officially this week. I think it's margin eight through two eight through seventeen. Yes. So it's like so it's like Thursday through Monday is interactive. And then Monday through Wednesday is film and then Thursday through Sunday is music, technically. But it just become this big conglomeration of things and these national brands they don't know what they're buying. They have no idea what they're doing. They just heard south by southwest of cool place like and so I don't want to bad mouth any of these brands? I remember the the worst to me, and they've sort of scaled some of these down. But the worse to me was there was year. Lady Gaga performed inside of Doritos dream does convene. Mri machine of a stage that looked like convenience. What do you call these in vending machine? Vinnie Meshiah was full of Doritos. And I was like what is happening here. This is not good. This is not what we want. My favorite though was one year. I was down by the we were to sports bar because it normally overlaps with with with my birthday and with like March madness sometimes on college sports bar during the weekend one of March madness. And it was right by the convention center. And we talking to somebody that was like, oh my God. There's that fucking Sharman thing activation. Everybody calls their their brand activation. Activation doesn't me-mention Sharman. The the toilet paper company. They had a giant a giant light toilet. There was like three stories high. And if you went by who get a free roll of toilet paper, if you gave me your Email address or something, and I was like that is the dumbest shit. Unintended. I have ever seen. And I remember walking by and like one Lindt Lindor later somebody's like, oh, there's the Sharman. Oh, that's the thing. I'm you gonna free rule the toilet paper fucking work. And I was like you're really going to take a role toilet paper from south by south west back to back to California with carry it around like because everybody has their backpack. Oh, yeah. This is only time that people at the bar don't with backpack on don't have drugs in it. It's just they just have swag so much wag bad t shirts and hats. There's other rules that I try and live by I don't wait in line for drinks at a bar under any circumstance. Okay. A lot of places will offer like free beers. But you have to go to the back corner and wait in line for a keg beer. Okay. And you could go to counter and pay three dollars for a Miller lite bottle. So to bar, that's overcrowded and there's lines. What do you do? You. You probably shouldn't be there. I don't like to wait in line. I'm saying you do balancer like just go buy beer. A lot of these events on dirty six street beers or not expensive. Okay. You should not wait in line. And you should never wait in line for food at these things again, you can get a breakfast every day in Austin like every every you can go get taco deli. Tacos everywhere. Just go get yourself a taco. That's hard anti line stance by Mike here, usually people love the lines, man. I just don't get it. I just don't understand how you fly. You get on airplane to go wait in lines. Yeah. So like there's a lot of frustration. You can hear in Mike and is tone a little bit. And there's there's a reason for that. And it's because this has gotten so fucking ridiculous here in Austin. Like, basically, if you drive around the city, what you see is lines outside of buildings most of the buildings the buildings that you would normally go to to do the things that you do here in. Yes, you can't go anymore because. I it's just it's just it's a lot man. Always sound. It's the peak of light commercial millennial bullshit, though. It's everything fun with fire festival. It's it's people who think they're more important than they are walking around with badges and bad go a whole nother backpacks and writing scooters and you ruining the world. But like so many of these corporate activation are just so stupid. The the other thing is they build the Bill these things around bans and again ninety percent of bands. Here are terrible. Like, they're just not good bands. That are you want to see this? I've seen some of the worst concerts I've ever seen in my entire life at south by south west, but I had VIP access right near the front of the stage. I will never forget, my friend. Claire who does not listen the podcast shout her out here two years ago? I was at the Ray Benson. Ray Benson lead singer of asleep at the wheel his sixty eighth birthday party. I'm actually going to seventy of birthday party. Tonight's one party. I really must random thing I've ever heard. But okay, Ray Benson's from sleep at the wheel. Yeah. But you you went to party. Yeah. I'm going to seven I went to sixty ninth to the Feis will it's the one of I like, it's at jeweler. It is we share a birthday. Okay. I don't know if it's always falls on my birthday. But anyway, raise birthday, they always do it like during south by oak and add GST him two years ago. I was there. The lineup was great there all these local bands, and like musicians, you know, he's a country musician and there, but clearly, hey, come meet me over here at the vivo the vivo activation vivo activation. Okay. And she was like. Yeah. Come. I've got passes will have free drinks. I'm like, well the place. I'm at has free drinks. And like I've got feeling they're going to have good entertainment later. She's not just come over here. I don't see they're often. Like, okay. She lived in New York. We go to vivo and heads free drinks, his good. He was at payloads, which is a they're terrible Mexican restaurant on Red River type. But it was cool. Like they had like all these lights and lasers and shit. Yeah. And vivo and all these activation there. Stephan repeats, all these things for Instagram. Yeah. Cools right next. The Samson Silicon Valley meets fire festival. So we get there. And I swear to God, I'm not this is not hyperbole. This was the worst concert. I've ever seen the first band. The first song the guy came out and played like super slow and like played with his back to the audience time. The second Sono like you to make artistic statement. And I don't think it was that. I think he was just fucked up on drugs or something the rest of the band like look confused that I respect the second song also played slow in about suicide. And it was like, okay, dude. And then finally the third song was pretty good. It was like a little uptempo. And I'm like, okay. This is good. This is a band that opened with this one. Now, I'm seeing a rock band in a cool environment. There's lasers and like all right. This is good. And it was during it was during this week. So all the people they are wearing landlords because they're the tech people music people nobody it's a Tuesday night. Nobody's getting fucked door. It's just a bunch of dorks the worst audience, you can imagine for rock show with the worst rock band at the end of the third song. The guy goes, oh, man. We didn't play that. When they're well. Geez. Terrible. I'm sorry. And then played like another one with his back to the audience. And I was just like what is going on? Meanwhile, of course, I check Twitter and at the Ray Benson party Willie Nelson. Plays prize show followed by surprise appearance by George strait. Oh my God. And meanwhile, I'm seeing some band that had some shit name of wish on new their names. I probably don't exist anymore. And so they were playing a corporate thing for the people at vivo. Thank you ego. Though. Claire like if Willie Nelson dies before I get to see him because he's fucking eighties Omer you. He's thankfully, I've seen Willie a couple times sent so Claire will not get murdered. But I was like I will hold this against you until I I didn't seem again until July of the next like a year and a half later and you're off the hook finally because I've been cursing your name every year and a half clears life was on the line. She could've fucked been murdered by. Yeah. Crazy. Anyway, there's a lot of things that seem cool and just aren't cool. But this is the worst example I've ever encountered in terms of like when I moved to Austin. It was one of the things people were excited about that. I heard about there was a seal and there was south by southwest. And I was very different things. Aco is a music festival taking place in VIN essential venue this park Tzilker park with several stages. It's very organized. And it's a lot of fun south by is mortgage board of fuck stakes coming in from all over the world to pretend they're more important than they used to be. In here each other, talk and suck each other's farts. And like I don't need to hear John fabric speak on the future of ecommerce in the children's online detainment industry that's not a fucking seminar. That's not not something that matters to into more than five people. And there's so much about them. Now, there are a lot of these there niche seminars, which are basically just podcast. These are just people pretty much our people in chairs on on a on a stage talking for now. In fact, I think they do record releasing almost all as Stanton podcasts. Like wanna hear some of these things you can you can find it. Yeah. It's just and I guess it's a CNBC like their parts of it. If you go by the badge, if your company's going to buy you a two thousand dollar platinum badge, then more power to it. But that's that's different deal. It's a lot of money to. Yeah. Anyway, it's not cheap. If you want access to the good shit and for the people like us. I mean, I I don't know anyone who has a badge or risk man redo. I have not. Nine percent of locals don't fuck with any of that. They're still enough like free shows and things you can go around and do, but it's it's mostly playing the reality is you can go see free shows every night of the week in Austin. You really if you really into live music, you shouldn't have to wait for south by and then call it south by now, I will say this as far as being a networking event. It's fantastic. Because if you're a good networker, and you I'm not in this nothing, obviously, I don't take part in this. So, you know, it's not my deal. But if you are men, there's never a city with more suckers in one place than Austin, Texas during south by southwest. We've got every dip shit who thinks he's smarter than he is in the whole fucking country in our city for two weeks for you to come down here and network with and then take money from. So if you wanna do that, sure. And I'll and the the last thing I'll say the worst part about south by south west is the weekend of music fest are the the music portion. Yeah. Which is this upcoming week? Mike. Did you hit Connie west just playing in an abandoned homeless shelter while str-? I don't even know. Yes here. Okay. So every year there's now this hasn't happened as much last couple not the last couple of longtime. There was always Rhys. There were rumors were whispering secrets as in town. He's gonna do the secret show ninety percent of the time. Like you hear about either it doesn't happen or ill. Here's a one hundred percent chance every rapper involved in a secret show shows up an hour too late. They performed for thirty minutes after showing up an hour and a half least. At least bread key still tells a story about how he refuses to to listen to snoop Dogg because one time seven years ago he weighed in line for four hours to see snoop. And he came out and said to songs and left showed up four hours after he was supposed to start playing they'd cut off they'd stopped selling alcohol, two hours before and people are still just like hanging. That's not uncommon. That's put one of the main things I hear every year. This happen rapper will come out so late that they've literally already shut off alcohol sale. Sales which is fucked dude if listen if you're rapper, and you're listening, there's got to be at least a couple of you for the love of God man, we have shit to do come out when you're supposed to at the time. It says on the fucking ticket. So we can all watch you do your thing. And then go home we have lives. Yeah. And so there's always that. And there's you're always chasing that so they're sort of the foam thing there was one year prince recipe's. Yes. Five years ago did a private club show for like Capital One shit. It was what it is. Corporate thing might have been Samsung or what my friend Katrina was actually working for the sponsor at the time. Nice. And so it was like training get us in its you. No. And she had anxiety issues a love, Katrina. No, no. You cannot be here. I'm not going you and get just get away. Go to the back of the line sped apparently. So like now there's nothing in the world that sounds cooler than prints in a club setting. That's something that you don't see. Yeah. Some you go wait out out of the ordinary. That's cool promise prince did play, but he mostly just stood in the back and talk to people while he's band played songs over and over and over again, that's very place on like one every five and then he just put his guitar down in like wonder around what? So even like the coolest things thing never really live up to the hype. That's yeah. But anyway, it also you can't get into the coolest things, and you can't. Yeah. The only people get into them have platinum badges in an even then you wait in line. And even then you have. Get lucky and then even then it's like you also have to check in on six different apps. There's a great video that Madison. Our CEO always sends us every year. It's called how to be south by south best, and it's on YouTube. You can just type in how to be south by south best watch that video give you pretty from two years ago. I saw a lot of the radio stations here sponsored these like concerts. Yeah. And they'll do like a lot of them in the morning K. Jess are are one. Now. It's also say limits and KT do these things where they'll have like five bands play from six AM to to eleven like aids. Play like thirty minutes set you make five dollars donation. You hang out you drink coffee new. It's like this is the thing. Yeah. They're cool. These are good shows. So two years ago. I was into the band future islands. Okay. Never heard of it though. It's good. It's good the lead certain kind of looks like David you don't like him anymore. I do I just you were big into into it at the moment. They had a legendary performance on the David Letterman show, one time all sin this cool. I don't know if you've seen it, but it's maybe the single greatest like three minute late night appearance in the history of telenovela. You gotta send that to me. Okay. So future islands. I read that they're going to be at buffalo billiards on dirty sixty. And I'm like, oh, cool. And it was some one act. So like, hey, let's go to this. And I got my friend coach Bobby came with me with the girl, and and and my girlfriend, so we go to this thing. And I'm like, oh, they're going to be here in an hour. I need like can we get up close like a tried to get like right near the front of the stage. Right, elliot. Ten minutes before like, I see there's only like a set of Bongos. And I'm like, oh, well, maybe let's do something acoustic like. You know, that's not a good sign. So then I realized that we waited in and I forced three other people to wait with me on this wasn't a free beard. This was he was actually Patrick drinking green beer, but I waited peop- made people meet me on thirty six street for ninety minutes to see a band that performed a five minute radio interview that wasn't actually broadcast into it. So we just sat like fifteen feet away. And couldn't actually hear the no. And I it was terrible. And and I think I do have a photo from that on my Instagram with the lead singer of future islands. And then we walked down dirty six, which is the worst place on earth. Most of the time and way way way way way way worse during south by less because every every rapper every street musician every every singer everyone's out there, handing you CDs. Like, you're gonna pay for somebody's death. Tate that you don't want and then trying to get ten dollars from you. Yeah. It is absurd. And it just turns into like a big fest. It sucks. It's it's oh. By the way, you're thinking like, oh, maybe I'll just go to Austin for south by south west for the music. We don't do it don't do. And if you do just don't don't be like, oh, we'll go. Check out six. That's where the action is. Right. No, no, that's terrible. That's the worst place heart of it. That's the heart of south by southwest part of of the heart of the worst part one time in Times Square, dude handed me a CD. And he was like you do I appreciate a man I turn to start to walk away. And he was like, oh, twenty bucks. And I was like we fucking handed it to me. I'm not supposed to know that. And I ended up back to him and walked off people who are wondering like Jesus south by southwest sounds awful. Why do they even have it? It didn't use to be this way way back in the day before Austin became the overcrowded traffic fucking. It's still a fantastic city. I live here. I love and have been for eight years. But it's not what it used to be in. Because there's so many. People are so many people found out about it used to be like this gym and south by southwest was almost like the heart of that. And it was this time of the year where all these fucking musicians would come into town and incredible bands that you would normally never get to see in small venues would play all across the city and all these locals would go to the shows, and they were typically free, and you'd get free drinks and see an incredible show. And that was kind of it. It was very much like you walk around to the bars, and you see who's playing, and that's kind of it. And then there was some secret shows, and there was cool stuff that people that access to that normally wouldn't and then slowly over time word of mouth killed it. That's how every good thing ever. Worked says just the way it goes a circle of life in the event world, especially with bars, there's always cycles with that type of shit. Anyway, it was incredible. And then any old school Austin person? We'll tell you how bad ass it was back in the day to be able to wander around during south by. But then slowly but surely early nineties late into the nineties early two thousands. Our here, and it's become what we just described for the past thirty minutes. It's like, it's just not cool anymore, man. It's a bunch of fuck endorse with lanterns walking around going to see other talk pickup fucking tips from each other on little tech bullshit. And I'll say this for for look there's nothing wrong going to listen to somebody else speak. So you can try to glean some fucking information from them. And I often on this show. I try to give you all stories that hopefully, you can take something from. So that you don't have to experience all the same things. I did when I when I listen to shows that's part of what I'm doing. When I read a book, that's just the way life works. You try to learn what you can. And then move on. There's nothing wrong with going to learn something from somebody seminar or speak. Speaking thing, or whatever is just not for me. I think it's fucked up stupid. I think you should go there and that shit on your own through experience while you paying money to go listen to some doofus, you know, taught you about like I can't think of a worse thing than a south by southwest seminar. And how to? Podcast. That's what keeps popping into my head. Like, KOMO listen to the Ross bolan tell you how to start a podcast. I bet you at some point. Some fuck will approach me and try to give me to do that. I'm not gonna do that. That sounds terrible. You just Google how to start a podcast people Email me every week with that question. Like, what do I need to do to start a podcast? I'm like the fact that you're emailing me means you've already failed that you couldn't figure it out on your own this probably not the thing for you. You know what I'm saying? So don't don't. I'm saying don't be reliant on other people to give you the information you need and a lot of that is what south by southwest feels like to me. It's like you can go to a seminar on how to brush your fucking teeth in the morning. I just crazy. The thing to me is I never understand how these companies can possibly justify the expensive flying big competition. People to Austin put them up in hotels that have X exorbitant prices this week every city most expensive two week period to fly interrupt of Austin and all the hotels are at capacity in our super pricey like even the terrible ones. Yeah. I just don't understand how how this makes sense, but it continues. And I think that's probably part of the reasons gotten a little bit smaller. But because companies have started to realize like we're point money into a fucking pit here. Maybe I could just you know, like, I'm sure my employees loves to go down there and eat breakfast tacos. Right. Drink Margaritas for every meal, but like we could probably just subscribe to the podcast or continue like, you know, working just do our jobs and stay in our own fucking city. We appreciate it. If you would do that. I have big breaking news Ross. What would you like to guess, how many of my friends have posted on my timeline for my birthday on Facebook? Yes. On facebook. Can I take a stab? Yeah. Thirty six twenty five so far today. Okay. You shocked by this in a smaller big. I I mention this. Because I want to go back. I obviously no one's posted anything on my Facebook wall since two thousand fourteen myself included, of course. So the only thing that pops up birthdays, right, right? This year. I have twenty five fronts the year before I got twenty nine friends of silly little bit of draw year before thirty seven oh the year before that. I have some some things here in twenty sixteen that are tests that only I can see the year before that I had forty two. What will you testing? It's a some video content. I feel like the year before that. Okay. Here the year before that seventy six so I are we we're seeing a theme here. Yeah. Facebook's dying remembering college how bad ass or high school. When you have your birthday, and your Facebook wall would be like three it would literally every single one of your friends would say happy birthday, even people didn't know you because that was what you did. And it was it was it was kind of fun. And now, it's just a pressing shit. Like, I'll get eight people saying happy birthday on my Facebook on my God. Damn. But also fuck you, Mark Zuckerberg pleases me, greatly to see your social media network is big as it may be unkillable that it may be it is shitty. And it is fucking worthless. To anybody with half, a brain in my opinion. It's the worst. Yeah. I don't know why use phase. I love a love talking about how we're we're. I just I do remember. There was a time where you would on easily get a hundred hundred people two hundred people and now. I'm down to twenty five. I don't want. Anyone? Who's listening is an actual friend of mine on Facebook. Don't like my post. I was about to go do it. All right. My my second. Like my second cousin who I see like once every three years posted twice. And sent me a message saying I didn't mean to post twice as funny. This is just great. They hit you with his message to tell you didn't mean to post twice she. Yes. She posted twice. And then told me I meant only to post once stays book always hit you with the Mike winder and three others. Birthdays today wish them the best and they have that shit now. Because no one is well, you know that. Now, we should get out of here. But you know, that when I use that when I do log on Facebook every day to see his birthday's. Yes. And I use it on my calendar, then I on front people. Yeah. But that's your method of unfree is use it to my counter, you one of these people whose always that's I on front people on their birthday. That's my move. Right. Even if it's me like what the fuck how do I get this thing in front everyone whose birthday. Oh, click, and I see whose birthday is you have four birthdays. Okay. And so I have test. If we're waiting in line for barbecue or tacos, or whatever let's say, we're waiting. We're back to Wayne in line. Right. Let's say we're south by party waiting for winning from one way or C Brooklyn brewery. Yeah, we're waiting to see Justin Timberlake perform with craft beer balanced on his head. And then, but it really just turned out to be Justin timberlake's DJ. Yeah. Or or a DJ doing Justin Timberlake tribute, right? Well, drinking beer. Yeah. Anyway, we're waiting in line. If there's a person that is five people behind me in line. And I'm not. Interested. Like, I might reckon. You might go shit. There's Carroll from high school if I don't want to be like, hey, Carol. How you doing good to see you share? You are not my friend. Wow. So it could be an old co worker it could be a friend of Frank could be somebody's x growth like this standard. But like if I if I see you or if I Taylor right behind me. Hey, how you doing good to see you? We're gonna we're gonna chat. Sure, you are my friend except for that one time when you came to Matt's Rancho, and you big time doesn't you didn't fuck and say, hi, but that's an extent birthday wrong. Okay. Fair extenuating circumstance your point stands. I think it's a good measure for whether or not you should be Facebook friends with somebody's probably have significantly less Facebook friends than I did several years. It's a good way to get rid of all the trash to try to make some effort to make Facebook worth something in terms of your time line, right? I it's all soccer Burks face probably really not to get back into now. Where are we see? I shouldn't have Mario now record. I like it when you do. I like I like you when you drink Facebook. Thank you. Facebook was best when it was when it was like a news feed that had publishers on it, we've talked for a long time how it's very hard to run a media company because Facebook control for a longtime control all the traffic, and they were artificially inflating as people, and then they turned the spigot off. That's they boned us. That's what people say and then Facebook about two or three years ago said we wanna make Facebook about what it was started be about your family and friends and what they're doing. Yeah. Guess what Facebook? I don't give a shit about. What those people are doing like if I cared. They'll text me. Right. They're doing something. Cool. I actually joined Facebook when you log on Facebook and see like all these articles. Oh, your friend Ross like this this post like, oh, maybe this is an interesting thing. It's crazy to think about how much group texting has influenced Facebook and kind of killed it because it's like, I don't need to check Facebook to see what anybody my family's doing because I'm already in text groups with those people in if I wanna find out any information from them there too. Seconds away in the form of text message. Yeah. It just doesn't. There's no probably on what's up, which is owned by Facebook or or I don't use that. Well, I try not to anyway. That's there's there's a oh, yeah. That was the truth behind south by south. Yeah. The Paul Pierce about south by southwest next segment. Oh, sorry. God damn it. I do wanna shout out to members of the gang that recognize me at the GS TNN party last night. Nice. Shouts to you guys. Hopefully, if you're a three Benson event tonight comes Hello. Everybody's got some cool to do. I'm going to be at home playing at apex legends. If you recognize me say, you know, when I realized Ross we never got your review of the Gary Clark's, June very Clark junior concert. It was so fucking incredible. That guy is just so ridiculously talented that it's it sick. I mean, it was cool seeing him in his element like in Austin because he's from here, and it's very much like it's playing on home field advantage for him. Right. And so people yelling out like do it to them. Harry and then had fucking just shred for ten minutes. I mean, he gets to the point where he's basically convulsing on stage like Jimi Hendrix style. And because that's the kind of body movement. You have to have to continue to pluck away at that speed. And he almost passed out at one point. He was like fuck hell by birth. A little too long on that last one like almost pass out. He's he's so good duty. So talented some of his songs on his new album are like real I don't know how to put this. I don't mean necessarily bad way simplistic in their writing. I don't mean musically. I mean, lyrically so leery. They'll be pretty simple. And you're like, you know, there's a good little Bob. I dunno. It's fine. But then Gary Clark launches into a five minute guitar solo. And you like that was the greatest thing I've ever it doesn't matter that some of his songs are a little more simplistic, he's the most talented guitar player. Living and breathing on the face of the earth in less. You can find somebody who can beat that. I don't know that it can be done. Ten out of ten is what I would give. Wow. Yeah. That's what I like to hear. I mean to the point where dude if I'm watching your show and your I'm so engrossed by what you're doing that. I'm zoned out your you get your job, and I was like like three songs past and Taylor. Like tap me on the show there. You know, I was high too. But. So was everybody else? Yeah. I it was I was just like oh my God. I've never seen. Anybody do anything like that? That's my favorite type of show to see where somebody does something that I've never seen before life. And I'd never seen anybody who can play the guitar like that in do things with tar like that li-. I mean, it's like when you hear an incredible free style like for guy who's huge rap and hip hop. There's something about hearing an incredible free style in respecting the wit. And quickness of the person coming up with the free style that makes it cool. That's what's so great about freestyle rapping. It's very similar when that man's going off with guitar. He just making shit up at that point as he goes along. No one else can do what he can do in. That regard. Like, it's like, I don't know who the best free is on the planet at this point. Nobody even writes her own songs in the rap game. So doesn't matter. He's insane. If you get the chance to go see Gary Clark, junior live absolutely go see him, even if you have to pay exorbitant tip ticket price. I got to go for free shots to my wife's company. But fuck it was good. Thank you for bringing it up. Like talk about first second terrific. I want to touch on one more thing before we go next. No, just kidding. No. We have to one set one one one more segment before you exit is the next segment. Mike Myers, the underrated icon. So I've spoken on Mike Myers specifically Austin powers before I think way back when we first started the show one point. I watched Austin powers, and I remember kind of being reminded how funny of movie it is it's like truly hysterical movie. It silliest fuck, but it's like one of the funniest movies probably ever made. And Mike Myers is obviously the star the movie plays. Austin powers. You also plays Dr evil. He also plays a number of other characters throughout the course, we'll ferals and makes an appearance in the first Austin powers, which is Larry issues like these name might be move Stafa. Which is I think the name from the lying anyway gets on five. He's very badly burned. It reminded me how good Austin powers was. And then I kind of left it at that. I think I talked about how Austin powers deserves more respect. But last night, I was thinking about actually was this afternoon before I came up here. I was thinking about it's not that's not the case the movie, so I married an axe murder came on on Twitter something somewhere. I was reminded of this film that came out in nineteen Ninety-three. It's really silly. It's like one of the first things that that a Myers did right? After Wayne's world came out the year before and I used to watch this movie all the time with my best friend in middle school, Nathan Newman. I don't know why. But we thought this movie was the funniest thing ever. It's actually kind of quirky in has like weird slam poetry humor in it. So it doesn't really make sense that we liked it. But we did. That reminded me of all the other movies that Mike Myers done. And I was kinda like why the fuck don't more people talk about Mike Myers look at this rundown. Wayne's world in nineteen ninety two. So I married an axe murder in ninety three that probably shouldn't be on this list. But it is for me. Austin powers ninety seven Shrek in two thousand one all of the following tricks that came after it he added employers bastards cameo Baheen rhapsody cameo, if you got at least five movies that people can consider let fuck that. If you've got three movies that people can consider classic movies like in any genre. You've had a hell of a career. But yet he he seems to not be given the respect that many other comedians actors and actresses are. I think he kind of falls into the same undervalued bucket as Adam Sandler. And I think it's for the same reason. It's because he did a bunch of really bad movies that kind of smudged his rep a little bit unfairly, I might add. But like the love guru that has to be one of the worst movies ever made ever like ever ever ever. It's so fucking bad. He did some bad shitty did some bad, buck and movies. Some of the Austin powers movies were crap the one with the beyond say that was one of the worst acting performances in the history of acting, and I love beyond say, she's our Queen and goddess and when if you Texas finest, but in no fucking under any circumstances. She should she be allowed to act ever. She destroyed that movie, and I know it's supposed to be part of. Like, the stick the bond girls were bad actresses to worked in the first one with with what's her name, man? How can I possibly forget the fucking female co-star of Austin powers as the British check. Yeah. But she's oh, she's always got her boobs. Not that one. She's super super super super hot. Okay. The Elizabeth Hurley is the first one. Yeah. She's one of the hottest people ever to walk the face of the earth lover, I'm thinking of the other chick. Maybe it was too Heather Graham. Oh, dear God cannons. But damn bad bad, bad bad bad character, Felicity, Felicity shag. Well, anyway, Mike Myers is comedic genius. I think he's he's he needs to be given I guess in other opportunity to like, I don't know if he's not trying to create anymore shit or he kind of teased, maybe a Wayne's world comeback with the guy that with what's the name of the guy. He did Wayne's world with in a carving my brain today, you you've been. Drinking and you're better off than me. Dana Carvey and him came on the Academy Award. There's little Carvey documentary out there, by the way. Really? Yeah. Yeah. I'll find it very random, but they also had incredible Saturday Night Live careers did Mike Myers and the other guys in his little squad there Dinna Carvey documentaries called to funny to fail Hulu. So if you're a Hulu subscriber, and you've watched I have watched it. It's incredible. Dan, Carvey after Wayne's world decide to leave Saturday Night Live because he's too big a star. Right. So he got a show called the Dana Carvey show on ABC. And some of the people on the show are I would say head pretty good careers. Would you like me to name some fear? Dana Carvey, Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert, Robert smuggle. Oh, so these are people that worked on his show. And then went on Il hater, these people that start on the show holy shit. And why it failed? I think they canceled after like nine episodes because it came on ABC after America's funniest videos, and it just it just wasn't meant. And it was just silly crazy show, and they talk about the anyway, the to find a failed documentary is excellent. And they they talked to all the people involved. It's very funny.

But I Johnny Depp is suing his ex fiancee, amber heard for an op Ed she participated in with the Washington Post where she claims she didn't name him specifically. But it was clear that she was talking about Johnny Depp. And allegations of abuse and a lot of verbal and physical. Well, he is filing a lawsuit against her saying all these things are demonstrably false. We have eighty seven security cameras that will prove otherwise. And in fact, she was the one abusing him saying that she punched him kicked him while they were in bed through things at him. And one member of the sheriff's department was hired as his personal security guard and refuted all of her claims. There's also another character witness. That's refuted, all of these things as well. So so that's not her. He's burying in the desert in that weird. Cologne commercial. No, those are some priceless. Oh, he should bury those breaks. I know they have eighty seven cameras.

Wed. 12/18 - Adam Driver Walked Out in the Middle of His Interview With Terry Gross

"Welcome to the CELEB- news ride home for Wednesday December for eighteen. Th Twenty nine. I'm your host Kate Raft. And Hey let's do it. Let's strap on our wetsuits dive right in to the split issues. splashy world of celebrity gossip. Today's topic's Adam. Driver walked out in the middle of an interview with Terry Gross Joe and Teresa Jude guys are officially splitting up. Olivia jade posted her every day. Beauty routine while her mom and Dad Lori Loughlin and Mossy mojo newly continued tin. You'd their legal battle. And the Olsen twins made a rare video for Ashley Benson's birthday and no they're not on cameo so year you can't get one. Here's what you missed today in the world of celebrity news do you feel that deal it. The air has changed changed. And we're now in the middle of a magical time in history. That's right Adam. Driver has somehow become one of the most famous people alive. How do I know this because it seems like? He's at the centre of different major controversy every single week. People Love Adam driver. People Hate Adam driver. I mean folks folks. This is the time to be alive. Today's Adam driver news revolves around him walking out on Terry Gross in the middle of fresh air interview that he did to promote his movie. Marriage story daily beast. Got The exclusive on this. They described the incident as follows and I quote sources at. NPR told told the daily beast. That driver walked out of an interview earlier. This month with fresh air host Terry Gross after expressing displeasure at the idea of listening to a clip of himself. Singing being alive from the musical company drivers character sings the song late. In Noah Baumbach New Netflix film marriage story and quote. Wow okay okay. So Adam driver walked out on Terry Gross. Because he didn't want to hear himself saying I mean that's kind of relatable. He also did mention before the interview. that he it doesn't watch clips of himself. Some people are calling him a diva for doing this. A lot of people are coming to Adams defense. Low calling his walking out on the interview a mental health self preservation tactic in Adam drivers October New Yorker profile. He discusses his anxiety over watching himself perform. The New Yorker wrote wrote quote. The first time driver saw himself in girls on Dunham's laptop he was mortified. That's when I was like I can't watch myself in things. I certainly can't watch this this if we're going to continue doing it. He said many actress declined to watch themselves but for driver that reluctance amounts to a phobia and quote depending on where you stand you either. Thank Adam drivers a diva shore. Like I said or you think he's someone with really intact boundaries. WHO's protecting his phobia or you don't care at all and you probably have a a really nice chill brain? That's not constantly thinking about Adam driver personally. I don't know what side of Adam drive her story. I'm on I don't know if there's a wrong or right side I mean I don't I just don't think about it. I really have to. I have to let this marinate if you are one of the people that's reluctant to make fun of Adam driver for walking out on this interview. That's totally fair. That being said surely we can all come together and make fun of Adam driver for how he used to eat. A whole rotisserie chicken back in the middle of acting class at juilliard. Right if you're behind on your Adam driver news and didn't know eater wrote about this a few days ago saying quote on an episode of the podcast. The film re Roll Drivers Juilliard Classmates Scott Yellow recalls drivers love for Rotisserie chicken to the point where he'd eat a whole one in class eater then unquote solo. WHO said quote? He would walk around school with an entire chicken in one hand and a jug of water in the other end quote. Can you just picture that a young young Adam driver walking into a black box theater with a whole chicken and a whole jug of water. I'm personally picturing the plastic jug of water that you get at the grocery store it kind of looks like it should have milk in it but it doesn't it has water and it has like the blue plastic top and listen. It's not like acting. Classes typically have desks so I'm guessing if Adam driver related eat a whole chicken in acting class he had to have eaten it on his lap the mandated chicken on his lap. Okay and we can all agree that that's funny and worth making fun of. Isn't it beautiful. How we all just came together like that I could cry? Teresa and Enjo Judas have officially split up. If you're a big real housewives of New Jersey fan like I am probably not super shocked by this tree says Ben seen out and about with hot younger dudes for a while now and she actually told Andy Cohen on the air that she and Joe would split if he ever got deported Italy which he did earlier this year after spending some time in ice custody following his prison sentence according to a source who spoke to people dot com quote vote. They discussed their future wintry in the girls went to Italy in early November and they agreed that each had to move on their doing so amicably and very slowly. They still love one another. But as Theresa told Andy Cohen on the watch what happens live special they are separated by the Atlantic Ocean. Neither is interested in a long distance relationship and quote this source also said that there are no plans for divorce as of right now apparently therefore daughters are going over over to Italy for Christmas. But Theresa is going to stay in New Jersey. I weirdly have like this huge soft spot for Joe Judas. I don't know why I but I like. I swear I think about him like once. Every hour I think about Joe Jude is all the time. And that's how I know there's something wrong with me. I'm like constantly like stalking Joe Dude Isis instagram account This is Info that I didn't realize until I read this people article but according to People Joe's deportation deportation to Italy may not be a permanent lifelong situation. They wrote quote due to the rough conditions inside the ice facility. Though Joe requested requested to go to Italy to await his third and final deportation appeal. He flew to Europe in October where he is currently awaiting the final decision in his deportation battle Theresa previously told people the Family understood why he chose to leave the United States after seven trying months in ice custody and quote like I mentioned before Joe Dice is an active instagram user and since the news of their separation. He's already made three grid posts. The first one is a photo of him next to a different photo of Theresa and the caption reads. It's time to let go hashtag link in bio the link then goes to US weekly article about their split. This is just a little sidebar but I'm fifty percents sure that this Lincoln Bio thing is a paid sponsored content from US magazine but that's not super relevant went the other posts that Joe Dude is made is just like a vague picture of a quote unquote says every next level of your life will demand a different you and unquote and the third grid post. That juicy Joe made is a video of himself working out at the gym because why not. He's doing sort of back workout in the caption says big back. Well it seems like big back Joe is going to be okay.

It's nice to get it right so Laurie Laughlin and Mossy emoji newly are gearing up for their legal battle in the Varsity Blues College Scandal. Case Little Bits of information are coming out pretty much every day at this point so I'm going to try and update you all as often as humanly possible because obviously we're all obsessed with the college scandal stuff and I'm I am particularly obsessed with Lori and Mossy Mos involvement because they're pleading not guilty and it's becoming a whole thing and of course they are the parents of my number one favorite youtuber Olivia jade so of course they have a vested interest dub anyway. Some news came out yesterday about Lori and Mossy Mos case this according to USA Today quote actress. Laurie Laughlin told her two daughters. They need to do better in high school as she was plotting to get them admitted to the University of Southern California a- as fake crew recruits prosecutors allege in new court documents. The detail came from Rick Singer the mastermind of a nationwide college admission scheme in an interview with the Federal Bureau of Investigation Before Laughlin and her husband fashion designer. Mossy Julie were charged with federal crimes in March arch end quote so basically this info came out in a letter summarizing. What Rick Singer? The ringleader told the FBI if you're wondering exactly what the letter said. US Attorney Andrew. Yelling wrote quote. Laurie Laughlin was in charge and told the couple's daughters that they needed to do better in high school and quote. I'm wondering if him saying Laurie. Laughlin was in charge means that Lori might be getting more of a sentences Mossy more. What that's that part is interesting to me? The reason we know any of this and why that letter has come out now is i. Guess a direct response to Laurie and Mossy Mos Attorney's request for FBI witness interviews. Their lawyers were arguing. That if they had these interviews they could prove that Lori Mossy Mo- thought they were making legitimate donations and thus are innocent according to a source close to Laurie who spoke with people dot com. She allegedly allegedly really believes. She was tricked by this guy. Rick Singer and she thinks she's innocent. The source said quote Lori was hoodwinked by Rick Singer. There's no other way to put it. She was convinced that she was making making a donation. Just like parents have been doing for years. The source later added quote. That's why she hasn't pleaded guilty. Frankly she believes that she is innocent and that the evidence shown in court will approve that unfortunately it seems as though the prosecution is hell bent on making examples out of people and not playing fair and quote sure the Law Flynn g newly household household in total and complete legal turmoil. But that hasn't stopped our brave hero. Olivia JJ newly from forging ahead and making beauty tutorial videos again Massimo and Laurie's daughter. OJ came back to youtube as you know after an eight month break a few weeks ago and yesterday she uploaded her second video since since returning from her scandal field hiatus her new blog is titled Everyday routine and she goes through her. You guessed it everyday makeup routine. God she really is a hero. I'm just going to briefly. Go over my favorite moments from the blog number one. She's still wearing self. Tanner she talks about it in this post. One of my favorite things about Olivia. Jade is herself. Tanner journey one time. When I was doing deep dive and I watched like every single video ever made made I there? Was this one clip. I saw where she casually admitted to. Putting on self tanner and then immediately talked about going to bed afterwards. The girl had white sheets and was going to bed head right after putting on self. Tanner I love it. I WanNa see those blotchy. Tanner covered sheets. Who needs the art Basel? Banana taped to the wall. The next hot piece of modern art is going to be Olivia. Jade's tanner sheets. So yes. She still wearing fake tanner. Here's another great moment. I'm just GONNA play the clip right here. I haven't I haven't done I. You know I've been gone for a while but I feel like I haven't done like a sit down to Toyland so this morning I don't know what to do this. Okay love that clip clips so much because you can like hear the existential crisis in her voice about whether or not. This is an appropriate thing to be doing right now. I think this video is art. It's it's a work of art. She also in the video hints at another video. She's been working on that. She's still filming and editing. And I'm hoping that that yet to be released. Video is the one where she spills all the incriminating tea. And maybe she'll do it while like showing US her nightly skin care routine and I don't know in my head cannon when the video comes Out to like have arranged to have the FBI waiting outside hurt rest. Both of her parents wouldn't that be a fun. Like M night Shyamalan esque twist come on. OJ Do you wit duet. Let me be your manager. Uh Breaking news everyone. The Olsen twins are going to soon meet Ashley Benson. Just listen to this clip. Happy Birthday Ashley. I hope this year is one of the best ones yet or sending Sunday's Lonzo Ball and can't wait to meet you soon bye. Oh my God. I know that you can't see the video. But that that was a video of the Olsen twins wishing Ashley Benson a happy birthday. Wow this video was actually posted this morning. On Ashley Benson's Instagram. The caption was just quote. Dreams do come true and quote and while this video I mean. This really threw me this morning. When I saw my I thought was wow okay? The Olsen twins are friends with Ashley. Benson the girl from pretty little liars and spring breakers but then I was like no wait. They said in the video video that they're gonNa meet her soon which means they've never met so they can't really be friends right and then I thought Oh maybe this is a cameo like that APP or you. Can you pay celebrities to wish you a happy birthday and stuff but then I was like no. There's no way the Olsen twins are on cameo. They're like super private celebrities celebrities. They don't even have instagram accounts. So so what on earth is this birthday greeting it really it. It truly vexed me. This morning I spent so much time trying to wrap my head around ended but then he did a quick. Google and I found this article from earlier this year. Where Ashley Benson to being an Olsen twins superfan Ashley spoke with women's wear daily back in July in the peace she admits she's obsessed with the Olsen twins and says quote? I try to find out where they are at all times in New York mark. This is so weird and Stalker. Ish I know a few places where they hang out so I go there to see if there. I've never had luck yet. I'm obsessed with their clothes their lines. If I could do collaboration with them which would never happen. It would be my dream. They are fashion icons end quote. Okay so Ashley Benson is an Olsen twins. Stan I mean and who isn't I'm guessing someone in Ashley. Circle may be her girlfriend. Kara de Levin pulled some strings. And maybe made some phone calls in someone. Somewhere lured the the Olsen twins out of their cave of fashion designing cigarette. Smoke solitude to make this video as a gift for Ashley Who's thirty one today anyway. I'm a millennial girl with a pulse. So obviously I'm also obsessed with the Olsen twins.

"Two one zero all engine running dive. We have. Good evening. Welcome meteoric Erickson here. Lantis evening news on WSB the full number four. Oh, four eight seven two zero seven five zero one eight hundred WSB talk. You can take your pick on the numbers confession out of the gate. I have inhaled so much pollen this week. I'm going to try not to call into the microphone. Oh my gosh. Allergies. Allergies are just fully roaring up as I've inhaled all the tree Boogers out. There also known as Paulin. Now, we gotta college admission scandal we need to break down and analyze. So Phil listen Huffman who is the wife of William H Macy from Fargo an accomplished actress in her own, right? I think she's in what desperate housewives among other things. She has been arrested. Yes, desperate housewives is her biggest claim to fame. She's also a number of movies TransAmerica magnolia. Path the war George rule, but a really known for desperate housewives and Laurie Laughlin who is best known effort being in full house. It's full house is headed to the big house. They're probably going to get arrested. Well, they one of them has got arrested. The other was out of the country. They're going to go to jail poor old Becky gonna go to jail for bribing college officials to admit their daughters. Now what we knew about William H Macy here. He's the issue when we make Macy, you know, him from Fargo among a whole bunch of other famous films. He infelicity Huffman are caught by undercover federal investigation on. Phone recordings trying to get their daughter into college through bribing officials at various colleges Macy has not been indicted because he is they haven't gone after his second daughters bribery. They were looking at his first daughter was involved with the group with the with the consultant who was arranging the bribes Macy currently stars as Frank Gallagher in the show shameless. But you know, he sees started himself in the Simpsons. He's been around and all sorts of films over the years from Fargo to even Marmaduke in the Lincoln lawyer things like that so famous people were talking about bribing college officials in the past you built a building on college campus or you became friends with the president of the university. You're able to get your kid in that. That's what George H W Bush's dah. Did prescott. Bush built a building at Yale. Donald Trump's father built a building for the university of Pennsylvania. Trump was able to get into business school. This is what you did yet. You you gave universities money publicly and your kid got to go there because you gave money and everybody kind of knew your kid wasn't there on their own merit. They were there because dad built the building. Well, now, it's pristine parenting at play here. Laurie laughlin. The actress Felicity Huffman, the actress they wanted their kids to go to college to prestigious university. Now, I we have to stop here because you need to understand that apparently Laurie Laughlin from. Full house thinks that the university of southern California is somehow a prestigious university. I kid you not now it also involves the scandal involves Georgetown, Stanford UCLA. The university of Sadie who the heck is bribing people to go to university of San Diego university, southern California, the university of Texas Wake Forest and Yale. Fifty people are charged this far thirty three of them, are parents nine were college coaches, the others were tested ministers, and the consulting firm CEO who ran this essentially, what was happening in some cases is college coaches were accepting bribes to list potential students as qualified applicants for soccer golf and other sports who were coming to be on the school soccer team or the golf team though students within go to the university. And they actually wouldn't be on the golf team or the soccer team is just the soccer coach. The golf goats the other athletic coach check the box and said, that's why they were coming. They would get an athletic scholarship denying other people the ability to get an athletic scholarship, and the coach would pocket the cash there were other situations. And this apparently is one of the situations with one of the actors is our actresses is they paid someone to take the admissions test and right the admissions essay for their child. So they paid someone to stand in the place of their child and bribed someone to turn the other way and not not pay attention to the fact that it was some old dude sitting there taking the tests of their kid now, what makes this particularly interesting. In addition to all the other angles is Laurie Laughlin has a daughter the daughter in question here who is a youtuber which shouldn't amount to much but in this day and age where people. Judge themselves and the relevance based on their likes and their cliques in their YouTube followers and whatnot. Lori Laughlin had a has a daughter. Her name is Olympia Jade, that's at least her youtuber name her. Actual name is a live. You giant Nali? Her father's a fashion designer Maasim OJ Nali, married. Laurie Laughlin so Livia, Gino Lee Olivia Jade as she goes by on YouTube actually, last August cost controversy when she filmed a YouTube video saying that she really wasn't looking that forward to going to college. She just wanted to go for the parties in the athletes, but that she was going to school, and she did not know how much she was actually going to go. This is direct quote from her YouTube video at to millions of Scribner's. I don't know how much school I'm going to attend. But I'm going to go in and talk to my deans, and everyone and hope that I can try and balance at all. But I do want the experie-. Of like game days, partying. I don't really care about school as you guys all know. So her mother bribed someone to get this idiot into college ahead of someone more qualified and now mom who's in Canada. Couldn't be arrested today. It's going to have to fly back into a perp walk because of getting her daughter there is some Justice in the world. Now, this all involves a guy who ran a test prep company. His name is a William Rick singer. He's the founder of a four profit college prep business, it's based in Newport Beach, California, and he made twenty five million dollars from two thousand eleven through last month. Bribing coaches and university administrators to designate children is recruited athletes or through other favourite admissions categories in some cases, singers associates created fake athletic profiles in order to improve student's chances. He would bribe college coaches to a lot slots to incoming athlete of income athletes to the kids wealthy parents. He would have people take tests all of these things Laurie law. Offline and Felicity Huffman and William H Macy. They're accused of pain. Upwards of fifty thousand dollars it appears in at least one case to get one of their kids into college. It's absurd Huffman. I'm sorry Huffman is accused of fifteen thousand dollars forgetting one of her daughter's unlimited time for an SAT tests. She also explored a plan to boost the test scores of a second daughter Cording to court filings. She discussed the possibility of having a ringer take the SAT exam for her daughter. She raised concerns about the discrepancies in cores scores that could result from daughter taking the test in March. But then allowing someone to take it in her place sometime after the all of this, by the way was called on on audio the feds were recording their phone lines. We make Macy called on phone as well. Now, several people have said that. The reason we make Macy is not being charged is because they have two daughters. We Mitch Felicity Huffman. The first daughter they paid fifteen thousand dollars to let her daughter have unlimited time for an SAT test. Simply they bribed the Proctor of the test through this consulting company. The second daughter there were issues involved, but they haven't fully investigated that round of bribing. So we may see could still be charged based on the second child just phenomenal. So they're a couple points to raise your first of all why? I have to tell you what we're seeing is. I think a friend of mine refers to it as prestige parenting or reputational parenting that you want your child to earn their elite status. So you buy them their title, so to speak it like a rich person used to back in the sixties and seventies a rich heiress or a rich heir would marry into a royalty from Europe. So that they could be a sir or lady, and they could have some level of Royal title. There was a prestige factor. There will no, of course, the the meritocracy of the upper elite in this country. There's really no merit. It's based on who you know, who who you are. But you still have to go through the formality of getting the title. So this was the parents acquiring the titles for the kid to fit into that strap society the other part of this is reputational parenting that your parents they wanna be proud. Out of you. They wanna say your child did something that someone else did not do and infelicity Huffman and William H Macy Laurie Laughlin case, they one of their children who I mean, the the child of Laurie Laughlin, you can tell us a spoiled brat and singularly unaccomplished except for her parents on on YouTube. And so they want to be able to say we'll Mike kid went to UC Mike kids got a college degree my kid. Did this don't say my child is a spoiled child of prolific has no accomplishments. She's got a college degree. They can be proud of their daughter's college degrees. It's these parents who want to be proud of their loser. Spoiled kids, I used to work at a law firm for about five five and a half years worked for a law firm and the low from that I worked with in middle Georgia and making it represented a number of well off families and many of those families had intergenerational wealth. And and one of the partners of the law firm once told me it was highly unusual for a. Well to do family with inherited wealth intergenerational inherited wealth to survive beyond the third generation because the kids did not earn it. And so they did not appreciate it. So they did not have the skills or the mentality to wanna keep it. And we see this in Hollywood as well. These people have kids now headed into the second and third generation who they've got no skills of their own. They've been pampered all of their lives. The parents need something to be proud of. They don't have a business to pass on to their kids. Their kid can't get an acting role because they're not that great of an actor. So at least you can go out and buy their college degree for them and in buying their college degree for them somehow or another prop up and be proud of them and say, look, my child has a college degree. They can take care of themselves. Now, even though they can't that's what all this is about reputational parenting and prestige parenting sitting there child up for something else. And it's all these rich people who never raised their kids in society to. Survive on their own. So this is their effort now. Guilt Wayne down on them as their kids. Become adults to realize I got to do something for them. Let me get him a college degree. Yes. That's the ticket. And now they're going to jail because of it not all of sleep the same way. Sixty three percent of American sleep on their sides. I'm one of my butterfly pillow gives you support in the places you need it most keeping neck and spine alignment throughout the night. Even if you switch sides my butterfly pillow, it's patented sleep technology that elevate your head where you need it.

Owl speaker say you can listen to music sounds or even smart TV. Now, I would like to tell you all about my butterfly pillow my butterfly pillow. They sent me one and I got to use it one night. And then my kid confiscated it. And hasn't given it back loves it has a three point five millimeter, Jack completed an ipad or an iphone or an ipod and listen to music through the night while they sleep surrounding themselves music, very comfortable pillow. They love it.

That's my butterfly pillow dot com. The checkout code is Eric it will change the way you sleep. So just one quick additional note on this scandal. And I'm already getting blown up by some for saying this. I get there's an interstate component to the crimes, but seriously, this is a college bribery scandal. Why is it a federal crime? Why are US attorneys evolve? Yes. Yes, you can say interstate commerce is somebody in California using the mail or wires to bribe someone in Connecticut, so just because a federal prosecutor can exert control over it doesn't necessarily mean the the they should what we're having more and more in this country is an over criminalization of things at the federal level. There are things certainly that should be federal crimes, but that doesn't necessarily mean they should be federal crimes in and this was a crime. This is bribing college officials using your money to bribe college officials test takers and others or test givers and others to ensure that your kid can get into a college is actually illegal. It's immoral. It is legal. You are putting your spoiled kid who is unaccompanied ahead of more accomplished less fortunate kids and doing so by rigging the system in ways that are not legal. But couldn't this have been dealt with at the state level. Yes, I get interstate commerce. I get all that. I was a lawyer. I understand these things, but I still don't necessarily think that it should be wh-what. We see more and more are US attorneys finding ways to basically make everything federal crimes, and I don't like that. I think we need less federal crime. We we ne- wrote remember up until the nineteen sixties with these essays, John Kennedy. It was not against federal all to assassinate the president of the United States. It was a state crime. That's why Jack ruby killed. What should be killed Leo Riyaz wold in a state facility? Not a federal facility. He was arrested under state law. It was only after that that they made assassinate the president a federal crime. We need to have less federal crime. And I'm not saying assignation shouldn't be one. But this bribing college officials through interstate commerce means to prosecute. I don't think. So when we come back we got to explore the Boeing situation with seven thirty seven eight max. Oh, this is hilarious. The New York Post is now noting that Olympia Jj Nellie Laurie. Laughlin daughter posted sponsored content on Instagram for Amazon prime featuring a photo of her and her new door room at the university of southern California with the caption officially college student. It's been a few weeks since I moved into my dorm. And I absolutely love it. I got everything I needed from Amazon with prime students and headed all ship to me and just two days. So wow, Laurie Lofton her husband they paid five hundred thousand dollars in exchange for having two daughters designated as recruits to the crew team university of southern California, despite the fact that they didn't participate in crew, and then a Livia Jade gets to college and becomes a social media influence or for Amazon prime cash there really are two America's aren't there? John Edwards was. Clearly right on that. My goodness gracious to the phones we go four four eight seven zero seven five zero one eight hundred WSB talk and from Roswell you're up next, welcome. Hi, erin. Hi. Thank you so much for taking my call. But I I heard the question I just want to know what the the big hoopla is not like it hasn't been going on forever. And how is this different from people who have the colleges where you have to be. They can only accept so many to this. And then they have to have room for minority students. Whether they meet the criteria are not how how is different, and that's the woman of color. I get I think I if I asked that question. Well, I think it's different because they're bribing people. They're not it's universities can have quotas. I think it's wrong. Spring for is said, it's fine. And they can sit aside quotas for people based on race or based on gender. But to bribe a university into for example, in the case of this Libya J girl and her sister paying five hundred thousand dollars to a crew coach to claim that they were on the crew team. Even though they weren't which denies to people who actually wanted to be on the crew team in the crew team and gets them into college scholarship. They otherwise did not qualify for and that college by the way gets federal money and federal money and title nine and whatnot are allocated based on spots available in sports and spots available in schools. So they're they're rigging the system in ways that aren't allowed. It would be one thing. If the daughter went in and said, you know what? Hey, I am on the crew team and was qualified. It was able to get in. That's fine. Or to say, hey, I'm a legacy my mom and my dad both would here. So you have to put me ahead of the pack. You know, schools have a right to prefer Lynch. Preferentially treat people whose kids go to the same school of the parents into but bribery is wrong bribery is wrong. And when you are using your money as a parent to bribe someone to lie you are wrong. And I hope that's clear to everyone that you're paying someone money to lie and that is wrong. It's wrong in all circumstances to pay someone money to lie, and you shouldn't do it. And they got caught. And now they're going to be carted off to jail. That's the big differentiation. Now, I wanna go to the Boeing situation into kick it off just to give you an idea of how big a new story. This is this is the opening segment on CNN this morning mission this morning, I've grown. Number of airlines are grounding going seven thirty seven max eight after the deadly crash that killed all one hundred fifty seven people on board at this point. The FAA is not telling you carriers not to fly it, but they will quote continuously assess its safety as investigators try to figure out what caused the new plane to fall from the sky minutes after takeoff. It is unclear if there is a link between this crash and the lion aircrash in Indonesia, just a few months ago. We're also learning more about the victims include two brothers from California and twenty one United Nations staffers who were on their way to an environmental conference. What is left unsaid in a lot of the coverage is that pilots from third world countries. Increasingly lack the hours in the air than American pilots have. The Ethiopian air co-pilot only had two hundred hours of flight time, which is absurd. When you think about the flight time that American pilots have thousands of hours before taking over a plane. We in this country tend to have a fairly direct link between pilots in the air force going into commercial aviation and being well paid to fly you across the country and around the world. Boeing came out with the seven thirty seven max eight and one of the things they did is David Thornton commercial pilot rights at the resurgent dot com. My site actually put this up earlier today, you can go to the research it and find the story the engines on the Boeing seven thirty seven max eight are pushed forward slightly but enough to affect the aero-dynamics a little differently from your standard seven. Remember, the seven thirty sevens popular plane in the world. Almost every airliner in the in the world has seven thirty sevens. Not all of them have the the eight max, however in the past with Boeing jets when you stall a plane, he when you stole the plane, you take off if the plane's nose is too high. It interrupts the airflow over the wings and the plane dips and Kim crash and Boeing has a computer program that if the plane gets if the nose gets too, high the computer program takes over and dips the plane to prevent a stall and all the other Boeing planes, including all the other versions of the seven thirty seven. If you maneuver the stick on the plane, it turns off that computer program Boeing decided to do something different with the Maxine and one of the reasons that decided to do something with the Maxine that was different. They went from moving the stick to pushing a button you push button to turn it off. And the reason they did that is because of the decline of qualified pilots round the world. Third world countries. They wanted to make it as easy as possible for someone with minimal experience to be able to fly a plane because this is the reality in third world countries. Now, there are plenty of countries in the world whose airlines aren't even qualified to fly into the United States. There's an Indonesian airliner, for example, that's not allowed to fly to the United States because the FAA will certify that. They're pilots are safe. There are more and more airlines like this around the world where there's a shortage of qualified pilot. So basically, they they hire bus drivers to fly planes in Boeing and Airbus need to make it as easy as possible to fly those planes. One of the hard parts of flying the planes take off and landing and one of the hard parts of that is stalling the plane the noses up too high the plane could crash in. So Boeing has made it very easy for the plane's computers to take over to prevent a stall. American pilots tend to instinctively know what to do. They're not gonna stall the plane. The problem here is that Boeing handled. It's the situation rather era gli minor stating from this Dave Thornton piece in from reading other pieces is that when Boeing decided to change the seven thirty seven four Matt from moving the stick on the plane to turn off the stall control computer to push the button, they never actually put that in the training manual. You'll let me say that again every other Seventy-seven out there, you move the stick to turn off the stall of computer system, and with this when you push a button, but they forgot to put it in the training manual, American pilots tend to be trained so much go through so many flight simulation programs. They know to turn off the button instead of handle the stick on the seventy seventy next. That's why the FAA is not saying ground all these planes because it's a matter of remembering to push the button instead of handling the stick. But other pilots around the world, the FAA. Vouch for them. And clearly there who aren't getting the training simulator time, they need to be able to know that this is a problem. So the grounding the planes and Boeing's going to have to go back there make it more more clarified. There's also a suggestion coming out this afternoon that maybe just maybe the Boeing computer program is overcompensating more than it should that in and of itself as a problem. The reason the FA though is not grounding seventy seven eight max planes of this country is that pilots in this country overwhelmingly coming out of the air force or overwhelmingly trained in simulators overwhelmingly have flight time in simulators before getting on any one of these planes as a result. They know even if it's not in the manual that on this version plan, you push the button and other parts of the world that's not happening. So they're grounding the planes, but while there may have been pilot error this Boeing also made a big mistake. Apparently when it didn't put notice in the training manual that they were changing the format for deactivated the Saul program, and that's gonna come back to haunt him. I have to tell you. We have pondered how to deal with the Alexandria Okaz, you Cortes nonsense, and I think we finally figured it out. Just using her actual words that things she says. And now deep thoughts by exander Cossio Cortes. This idea of like ten percent better from garbage. It's like that shouldn't be what we settle for. It's like this like it feels like moderate is not a stance. It's just an attitude toward life like. Thoughts Alexandria of conscio- Cortes. Seriously. We we wanted to figure out how can we capture the insanity of what she's saying? And we decided the best way east to actually just put her words up what she actually says in the transcript and south by southwest was the gift that keeps on giving. So we are pleased to introduce deep thoughts ballots. Andrea Cossio Cortes throughout this show. Every day. We'll be playing you knew deep thoughts by her. Because you know, she is the voice she is the face. She's the thought leader of the Democratic Party. Now, Democrats are having to push back on her because she's livid. They don't want to impeach the president. I'll give you an update on the Democrats impeachment plans when we come back. All engine on that. Well impeachment is collapsing. As a means of motivating Democrats fascinating to watch welcome material to near news ninety five AM seven fifty WSB. You want to be part of the program tonight. You can call four zero four eight seven two zero seven five zero or goal when eight hundred WSB talk. Oh, I wouldn't play Adam Schiff he is the democratic chairman now of the house intelligence committee, and he is really starting to have none of it on impeachment, and he's going to low with Nancy Pelosi and others what will be necessary to make an payment by partisan process. What have to be extraordinarily clear and compelling? I don't forget the possibility that the molar of vegetation will produce that or that our own will. But I think this week or is absolutely right. And it's absence. An impeachment becomes a partisan exercise doomed for failure doomed for failure. Echoey Nancy Pelosi who said this. For the molar word. Conclusive that there's a by partisanship. Message to preser- so bit Nixon was not Nixon was not a dish Republicans finally saw the white device the country unless there's some conclusive evidence that takes us to that place notice. They're starting to try to tamp down expectations. That's really what this is about a behind the scenes, privately the Democrats in congress despite a lot of their public protestations have never really believed the Russia collusion story to the extent. It was portrayed publicly. I it was amped up to fire up people for twenty eight teen. Well, Twenty-eight thousand came and went they got most of what they wanted. They didn't take back the Senate, but they took back the house. They made strong gains in safe. They made states like Georgia competitive will one of the people who really help them do that as a man named Tom steer you. If you live in Georgia know who Tom Steyer is even if you don't know his name, Tom Steiner, actually bragged in a Rolling Stone article that he hired. People who did not live in Georgia last year to call the Georgia legislature of year before last or so and express outrage over the possibility of them passing the religious freedom restoration tire is a environmentalist. And he is one of two activists who worked very very hard in Georgia to stop the religious freedom restoration act from passing pain people to essentially to come into the state in do that. Style was one of the two guys star in the last year has been running TV as including on Fox News demanding the impeachment of President Trump. In fact, Styler funded millions of dollars to democratic candidates around the country in the past year demanding that they support impeachment in many of these people did go out of their way to say that they would support impeachment when they got Tom stiers money, and now the democratic leadership in the house is having arraignment now for what is where Chuck Schumer has come out and said he's going to wait on the molar report before saying anything about impeachment. But Democrats in the house have for a year been played at the mall report is the be all in all they been played. If the report as it was going to definitively prove the president colluded with the Russians and they've known all along it wasn't. And now they're having to say, oh, well, you know, he he's not going to be able to tell us everything. He's he they were honest with he did interview the president. It's it's not going to be the full thing. They've got to rein in the Democrats on impeachment. And they've got a deal with Alexandra Causey, oh Cortez in in representatives to leave and Omar and the other new super progressive Democrats who have been demanding impeachment from day one not helping the democratic calls on that front. This could be a real fight breaking out within the Democratic Party for the heart and soul of the party. Now, I wanna play you democratic strategies to on FOX. And then when you talk about Joe Biden it all plays well together, I listen to this last week. I wrote this for Fox News dot com about how the party being pulled to the left is repeating what happened at twenty sixteen. We had the Bernie Sanders. Sanders Bernie bust we had sitting there pouting. I was looking at him in Philly the DNC and all of his people burden. He's not up there. I can't vote for Hillary his split the party. What happened Donald Trump became president? We're going to have a repeat of that. And twenty twenty we have different players, and it's going to come down to the AFC group. And again, the Bernie supporters over perhaps Joe Biden. Waters writing zone walls. So I do think that I worry that pulling the party too far left is going to eight the moderate. Yeah. There are more and more political strategists I'm seeing and political commentators online who were starting to say things like I never thought Donald Trump could win reelection. And now, I'm starting to think he's a lock on relection because of the Democrats dragged to pull to whatever you push to whatever you want to use to the left Joe Biden gave a speech day on the verge of announcing. He's running for president listen to this. Pennies as overtaken our politics. Sometimes it seems like we can't govern ourselves even talk to one another. If you notice I criticize her saying anything nice about every publican. Folks, this not who we are. How we got here. Veteran. Remember what it is makes this nation so special. It's our core values. It's what we believe sounds corny. But it's the American creed. I mean for real. We hold these truths self evident that all being credited cool in doubt by their creator with certain inalienable, right? We've never met the standard. There you go. Joe Biden, signaling essentially, he's going to be the adult in the room when it comes to the far left fringe now hijacking the Democratic Party. This is going to be a fight for the heart and soul of the Democratic Party. And what's interesting about it is I think you're going to see a divide in the American press corps to because many of the older members of the press agree with Joe Biden, they're not conservative. They're certainly liberal. But they're not as far out there, some of the others, and they're certainly not hostile to the idea of listening to the other side. Even if they disagreed younger reporters who were finding mortared more like the activists left have a real hard time dealing with anyone who disagrees with them on any issue. Can't honestly and accurately relate what the other sides. Shoes are what they care about anything like that. And we're going to have this fight the Democratic Party the fight over impeachment boils over into the primaries. All of these democratic senators who are running for president are going to have to go on record Booker, Kamala, Harris, birdie Sanders, do you support impeaching the president or not and some of them will say, I think honestly that no they don't and they never really have. They just wanted it as a campaign issue. Now, they're not gonna admit that part. But they'll just say no they want beating the ballot box. But then I mean, Elizabeth Warren who's who's been on the impeachment bandwagon for a is she really going to say. I don't really favor impeachment anymore. I just want to beat him. Because some of the younger Democrats who were most engaged what impeachment. They do. Not see the president is legitimate. They believed the propaganda from the Democrats that he really was a paid plant from Putin. And they want him out of there. Now, they want him out of there by non-democratic means they want him out of there through the constitutional impeachment processes, and they're not going to be placated. Meanwhile, you've got a bunch of them coming after Joe by Joe Biden who is Barack Obama's vice president what happens if Barack Obama gets involved for Joe Biden, you've already got to Lieber or whoever one of them coming out attacking Barack Obama for bombing kids around the world. What happens when Barack Obama comes out and says, you know, what you guys really have lost your minds. We gotta go with Joe do they turn on Brock Obama. It's going to be very very hard for them to thread the needle headed into twenty twenty. I have to tell you guys that I've used my quibble truth brush for more than two years so much. So that I asked I sought them out and ask them if they would actually advertise on my radio show because I love them so much. And so now, you listening to the podcast can get the ad as well because I really do like the quip electric toothbrush. I've used it for about two years the things I like about quick quip electric toothbrush. Are that? It doesn't have a huge fat handle that makes it hard to hold. It's the size of regular toothbrush. It doesn't have a charter that you have to carry with you when you travel it works on a AAA battery and every three months, they send you a new brush heads the brush heads stays fresh either. The body stays the same. You can get into multiple colors. They send you knew AAA battery when they send you the brush, Ed and the brush heads are only five bucks. It's a great toothbrush. It is designed by Dennis and designers together in you can tell it's why I love the quip. They're backed by over twenty thousand dental professionals, and they started just twenty five dollars. If you go to get quick dot com slash Eric. Right now, you'll get your first brush had refill pack for free with the quip electric toothbrush. So you get your first refill back for free by going to. Q U IP dot com slash Eric. That's get quip dot com slash Eric. So the president as given an interview to bright, Bart forty minute interview. And gives me a couple of shout outs in his interview, including. Pointing out that he and I spoke several weeks ago, and I told him I would be supporting him. So there you go. Yeah. Me, folks. Can we spend a few more moments on Alexandra of Cortez? A website did a montage of some of her statements from south by southwest the the big conference in Austin, Texas, and I just I wanna play you this just just listen it's worth it. This is the intellectual light of the Democratic Party. Now designer of the green new deal. Well, I think like, you know, whatever like boot, like, whatever, you know. It's like, you know, you know. You know, you know. Like, like, whatever. You know in like whatever like just like it's like like like this like like like. Hold back. Your increments. Eliza. Is like like for what you get the point. This led us to decide that we need to we needed to take her actual statements, and we need to put them in a segment. So you can understand that. This is the intellectual deep thinker of the Democratic Party. And we found that there was no better way for us to do that than to take her actual words and do this with them. In deep thought exander conceal Cortes. Here in DC so weird. It's like everybody is like a spy like is so bizarre. It's like you could go out and get a Cup of coffee and the person that's like sitting at the table in the corner of the restaurant is like, you know, like, then they go and text all of their friends that they saw so. And so at this cafe, and it's like triangulation, it's super weird. It's just like super weird. Deep thoughts Alexandria of Cossio Cortes. Deep thoughts by the deep thinker of the Democratic Party. So we need to circle back to the Boeing story. Real quick Washington Examiner reporting multiple pilots have filed logs with a pilot database maintained by NASA lodging similar complaints with the Boeing seven thirty seven eight max in this country as in other countries to pilots in particular saying that when they engage the auto pilot shortly after take off the nose of the plane tip down rapidly for rapid descent, and they had to disengage auto pilot and take the plane up to one of the pilots suggests it was the airspeed indicator messing up the the sensor because they were flying the restore so tap into this country. But the pilots did know to turn off auto pilot. It appears that the lion air the near planes did not by the way. Somebody direct message me on Twitter. And so they take issue with with my statement that third world countries have undertrained or not as. Qualified pilots, and that may be the case that they may have very, qualified pilots and certain cases. But overall it actually is a problem. It is a problem international. What do they call it international Pilots Association? I that that's not an India pale ale, international Pilots Association. There's a U N committee and several others. Have all been issuing reports about the dire shortage of qualified pilots, particularly in third world countries that they are not as well trained that because older pilots, retiring and younger pilots have not been involved in air force training and whatnot. In some of these countries that they don't have pilots who is qualified. This goes back, by the way to the Malaysian air jet disappeared fell radar never to be found again, where younger pilots there were calling into question the training in those situations as well. So it is we don't have to worry about that in this country, the air force and airlines, actually. Worked fairly well together to recruit pilots leaving the air force to go into commercial aviation. They pay them very well. And in we have a great safety record in this country. Now, let's switch gears again to talk about Tim tebow. Not actually Tim tvos with Tibo Bill in the Georgia legislature, the Tibo legislation who so in Tim Tibo was home schooled in high school. He could participate in public school sporting activities because of a law that allowed him to do. So in Georgia is considering the same law. It would allow homeschool students in Georgia to participate in theater, art and sport programming public high schools. If a student is a public school student and wants to go into home schooling. They would have to sit out for a year. The reason is because homeschooling George Georgia's largely self reported other states have certification requirements for home schooling. And they don't want to be in a situation public schools. Don't want to be in a situation where a student not making great grades disqualifying him for sporting activities, suddenly decides to become a home schooler, and the parents start reporting great grades that. That's a problem. Well, this issue actually has divided the home school community in Georgia pretty significantly. There are I'm actually surprised how vocal a number of home school groups are in the state of Georgia against this legislation home schooler who would benefit from it. A lot of them are against not all of them, though, some of them quite supportive, but a good many of them against it. So there is real fear. Among some. Home schoolers it is not shared by the major home school organizations in the state, you should know and not not shared by a lot of the major homes. Glad it gets in the state, but I have heard from dozens and dozens and dozens. Yes. When I dozens I'm well past forty different home school families who have emailed this show tweeted to me, what have you? I've had these conversations in church over the last couple of weeks. So here's the concern from some of them is that home schooling in Georgia's largely self regulated parrots attest to their children's grades. You don't have to hand in a portfolio of the work done. You don't have to unless you don't have to anything like that. You just say my kid did x y and z in the state accepts it in other states where the Tibo bills in effect. The parents have to actually submit documentation of what the kid covered examples of projects things like that portfolios intially, and what these home schoolers are objecting to is they're afraid not this governor and not this legislature. But a future one could then make the argument that we need to regulate home schools in Georgia further that because we have kids who are playing on the field who are home schooled. And they don't have to live. Up to the same academic standards as the in-school participants that we need to raise the standards through regulation of the home school community. Again. This is not an issue about the current home school environment in Georgia. This is not an issue about the current government, Georgia. This is people who are looking at the future Georgia getting a little bit skittish about the the future takeover of by the Democrats if it should occur in Georgia. And they're worried about what a governor Stacey Abrams could do who's not a big fan of home schooling and whatnot. And then of course, you do have the people who aren't big fans of the idea of home schoolers being able to compete on the Plainfield with public schools. The argument from the whole school associations that support this legislation is. Is that their kids are going to public school? They should be able to compete now that being said the Georgia high school sports associations HSA already governs everything already overseas. This. And that's why I support the Tibo legislation is I think it is good to integrate homeschool students into public school activities. The parents are still paying the taxes for the public schools. Even if their kids aren't getting the education in the public school. The parents are paying for that public school. They're paying for the facilities. They're paying for the football field. So you might as well integrate the home school kids into the programs and in other states where we have this legislation. Guess what it actually works? It actually helps integrate families into society helps integrate students into athletic activities, it helps build well rounded communities the home school kids in the public school kids get to know each other they build bridges they get to make friends that it can be. Considered a mission activity. I think it's a good idea. I hope the legislature will support it. You guys know that FOX website it. It's the left wing website that pretends to be somewhat mainstream even though it's not GE subsidizes it among others. They have a piece up today. Let me just read you the the headline we need to talk about the ethics of having children in a warming climate. And of course, they rely on deep thoughts bioterro- 'cause you Cortez and ethicists who raised questions about procreation in the age of climate change that essentially maybe we shouldn't have kids anymore because it's going to be too difficult. What's hilarious here is that one of the scarce areas of the global warming crowd is that we as a species or going to exterminate ourselves because global warming, and so now they're saying we should exterminated ourselves by not having kids the logical fallacies just add up in this. But I've seen several people point out. What's worth pondering every single one of us alive today is alive because someone who had a harder time on this planet had children all of us can trace our lineages back to well. A guy. Got off a boat after a worldwide flood, but we don't even go back that far. There was plague. There was invasion. There was war. There was drought. There was famine there flood. There was fire. There was a massive disease starvation. You name it doesn't matter who you are your family came from time where life was worse than now. And yet they still had kids of really arrogant to suddenly all of a sudden, hey, maybe we shouldn't bring kids in this world because life is hard not nearly as hard as it was two hundred years ago people.

So that's what she said is opened as the number one podcast in sports. Sara Spain's new podcast joining Libertad and friends we are building this over the next year. Piecemeal it's going to be slow. We're building a podcast network. Sarahspain is the newest addition today, Mike Ryan just released Dan Patrick interview that we believe was really good on south beach sessions. We're hopeful that we will get something from stugatz on Thursday. You could get Meena cimes every Wednesday. Her football stuff will keep you entertained and informed during the off season and Mike really likes. What Sarah did with this uncomfortable? That's what she said podcast. If you're a fan of our show and love our extended family that's growing here as we take on these new ventures. You're gonna wanna listen this. That's what she said podcast with Sarah where she interviews, Dan. It's really indepth look behind the scenes of maybe two vulnerable look at what goes on here. And I didn't enjoy it. I didn't enjoy doing it. No offence to her. She did her job. Very well. But it felt like she was dragging me to place. I don't like. Lending people look that much behind the curtain like she was asking me questions about when it was bad between me and Stu gods. How bad was it? And you'll get your answer to those questions. At least my viewpoint on it in in. That's what she said. If you subscribe rate and review when do I get those answers. And when do I get to tell my side of the story, maybe later there will be other opportunities. There's plenty of space on lebatardshow in front of your own podcast rebuttal, you can you do have your own platform. Could do it as soon as Thursday, if you wanna work, but I heard you during the break, you're not gonna believe it, Dan. I've got Abby doing this. And I've got Rachel Nichols doing that. And I don't have to do anything that would mean I would have to listen to Sara's podcasts, which I'm not I'm just going to promote it. I don't want to listen to it. I'm hoping someone will give me the information. And then I'll have a rebuttal stupidity which I don't listen to either by the way while but my does he does he does he deserve a rebuttal? Because I think he comes off. I'm the one who comes off as a bleep hole in this not him. Judgement aside. I don't think he'd come off as a believe whole you go in depth into what was a difficult time in our shows history. We've been pretty transparent about that time, you just get some detail here in the listeners. Here's some things that maybe they haven't heard especially from you. So go ahead and check it out. That's what she said. Sarah Spain's podcast now part of laboratory in France were very excited about it. This is an excellent episode. I think to relaunch this brand we're excited to have her on time now for Greg cody's back in my day. Now in these. Take a trip down memory lane. Here's your guy. Rick could he with back in my day? Theme cruises. Cody's crews. In fact, we just got back from a four nights sale the mayoral. And so I'm a bit of an expert in the changing, trends and cruising. A couple of standout neither for the betterment of the overall experience because like coins to a dollar change. Usually is not a good thing means less cruises now are full of physical activity ship. I was just on head fake wall climbing jogging trail fake surfing against artificial waves. What's with you? Folks, you break out in highs. If you skip the gym for a few days, you're supposed to be on vacation on a holiday a gym on a cruise ship. As an oxymoron, I don't sell fried chicken at your health club quit trying to sell health on my crews trying to act like I need stimuli. My idea of a cruise the stare transfixed off my balcony ruminating on the endless inky waters. Imagining. I'm at the helm of that distant tanker blinking off the horizon for Singapore. We're not doing that I seek nothing more strenuous and. Reading a paperback on a deck chairs lounge falling asleep as my wife loses at bingo, again, plunging, my guts out at relent and hitting the bars, and all you can eat buffets. Like, it's my last day on earth, which it may will be at this rate. Another trend in cruising is the theme crews there are is geared to fashion and Saifi and Star Trek in the Walking Dead. Does a Chris Jericho Rockin wrestling? Raise your crews a holistic holiday at Seghir vagrant vegans in a twelve day Mediterranean quilt cruise which sounds like about eleven and a half days. Too many. They just had a legends and blue crew's featuring members of the nineteen Eighty-eight dodgers, the three players mentioned in the ad were Mike Marshall, Durell Thomas and Dennis Powell, they didn't get Kirk gifts. I hope the legends were wearing Hello. My name is if you ever catch. Greg Cody standing in line on a cruise ship waiting for Dennis Powell's autograph, the next place. You'll see him as on the dick not for fresh air to jump overboard. The music theme cruises have to be the worst. There was a reason eighties cruise featuring Dee Snyder, Kenny Loggins and Sheila e pay big and traveled thousands of miles to avoid these people the not here that kind of music and have no escape from it. I had a nightmare the other night. I'm on an eighties music scene. Crews standing at the buffet line behind Gino vanilla and he keeps dropping hair and my Brown gravy, just wound him to stop and keep his name here on my gravy, babe. Dial back the cruise, please no exercise. No has been music ex. All I want out of my cruises. The silver roulette ball falling big for me just once in an endless river of Miller lite and never being within fifty feet of a line to take a photo with the ship's, captain. I'm Greg Cody. And that's how it was back in my day. Excellent. So you rail against has been music, and then you sing a song that literally no one listening on a stop. Geico presents eyewitness interviews with. Inanimate objects. This is Brian Bruno live on the scene of a recent windstorm here to describe the event a chest of drawers, there's a storm howling outside. So I thought I'd stay in and watch a rom com. Five minutes into the flick a tree ranch slams through the window. Where are you hurt? I just got a scratch on my chest. Your chest of drawers can't help you in a windstorm. But the Geico insurance agency can help you get covered for personal property damage. Co gyco to see how affordable homeowners insurance can be done lebatardshow. And the first thing with peace soup is the texture of had watery p soup. It's awful of had gelatinous thick p soup. It's terrible piece soup much like clam chowder needs to have that consistency. I p soup on its own can be a little bit bland it wants a fairly aggressive peppering insulting. Stugatz. He sup- needs a fine dice of ham. Not making not any other meat not Turkey. It needs a fine. Dice of ham piece soup scorch is easily. You don't want to heat it on. A high heat. You wanna hate it on medium low and the to peace soup? You want a ham bone for the stock you make to boil your piece VC's liveth our show with this two guys on ESPN radio. I'm surprised in the last couple of days there haven't been any clanging sound, interrupting everything we're doing to tell people that some free agent somewhere has signed. You guys have been a little bit passive on this front, usually you interrupt and discombobulated the shows got Mike just giving every signing anywhere. All over the league. Why has that not happened in the last couple of days give it time? Dan, for whatever reason the news just isn't breaking during our show, the the freaks come out at night, apparently. Yeah. And plus it all becomes official tomorrow. So like Mike said give it time. I think Wednesday Thursday and Friday, we'll be we'll hadn't started yet. Dan starts gamma. Put it on the poll. Do the freaks come out at night happy thirtieth birthday to the World Wide Web. Happy birthday. To her that'll care. Good luck. But that on the poll is well is the World Wide Web on second reference. A he or a she because thirty years ago, the worldwide web was introduced then everything changed the meta. It's twenty nine thousand nine I didn't want to assume that the World Wide Web was a man. So we've been talking about these other projects that we're doing away from here. Mike just wants to give you a taste of this Dan Patrick interview because it was really good. You got all the good stories from a life in journalism. And if you're interested in the ESPN stuff EP there's so many great ESPN saris. He takes us through all of it. I mean, Dan, Patrick was essentially a local newscast off. And then he made it to CNN. He's like I'm Megan eighteen thousand dollars a year I've made it and then from then on goes one of the more storied careers in what we do. So it's a fantastic just told so many good stories though. Yeah. And by the way, for those asking Sarah Spain's, that's what she says podcast. That will go live around, noon, we'll share all the links. Once it goes live, Lebanon friends is proud to boast right now, the two top sports podcast hosted by women. So just throwing that out there. All right in this pot and this outbeat session with Dan Patrick. He tells an amazing story about a pub crawl that. He does with Bill Murray of all people. So. You know, this is already a great story pub crawl Bill Murray, it's an eight z pub crawl that means you go to a bar that starts with a the next bar goes beyond. And so on and saw in this story, the part, I'm not even playing team bars. I'm not even playing the part where he and Bill Murray trying to try to steal a street sweeper the you'll to have to listen to podcasts for that. But this we actually take this interview a few weeks ago before Luke Perry Beverly Hills nine O two one O died, and there's just happens to be a Luke Perry story in which Bill Murray almost fights, Luke Perry. Here's Dan Patrick from this week's episode of south beach sessions with the story. Did I hear you? Right. Bill Murray almost got into a fight that night is that what you said Luke Perry of nine zero two one. Oh, he's a heartthrob nine. Oh, two one. Oh, he's at the corner of the bar. So we're we're not even halfway through the alphabet on this pub crawl this guy says the Bill. He's like, hey, Bill, man. You're my favorite and Bill goes. Hey, man, you're my favorite. And then the guy goes are you with me Bill goes are you working with me? And then all of a sudden, I realized now this guy wants a piece of Bill, so Luke Perry. So far, I'm trying to drag Bill out of a far, I think it begins with the letter k or l I don't know what. But so fast forward to get Bill out, and then we're separated and so the next day. I get a message from he calls me. And he said, hey, we're at letter S where are you? He and his brother Johnny got out of town couple of days later and paid six and talked about Bill nearly getting into fights and at the pub crawl so I've had I had fun moments unique moments with Bill, he's different. So check that out south beach sessions. Meantime will have her podcast out. Tomorrow's to gots allegedly on Thursday. Also at noon, you'll get that's what she said. It'll be an inside look on the show. A Cody I wanted to get your thoughts, though, Mike, how is the sound on Russell Westbrook. Should I play the sound? Or should. I just read the quotes from Ross. Russell westbrook. I think we should read the quotes from Russell Westbrook. All right. So you've you've got a game in Utah. And man, oh Casey is playing really well, they go into Utah and they win. A Russell Westbrook has taken a secondary role on the team. The MVP of the league has taken a secondary role on the team that is now Paul Georgia's Utah has a few of these under its belt some altercations with. Fans sneaky difficult place to play in terms of unruly fan behavior. Yes. And so you get a couple of elements here, right? You get all the racial tension that you have in this country between, you know, the the White House and black people this is in play in in Utah with this particular back and forth and evidently allegedly. The guy in Utah. Who was saying things told Russell Westbrook to, you know, get on his knees. Like use to Patrick Patterson has supported Russell Westbrook saying he's heard that exact same fan use that language before. And so Russell Westbrook took it as racial, and maybe the place that you can find racial is the idea of police officers telling black people to get on their knees. I can't speak for Russell Westbrook. I don't know what he's hearing there. I didn't hear the racial in in the in the comments. I heard a demand for subservience in the comment perhaps. It's just ratio by the fact that it's a white person treating black person this way air enough. And so here's the quote from Russell Westbrook. Who is not the one to be trifled with on this subject 'cause they'll take your fine. You're not gonna disrespect this, dude. You're just not going to he's not going to have it. I got scared for that kid who touched him the other day until Russell Westbrook turned around and realized it was a kid because because yeah, he's not having this. And so. This is what Russell Westbrook says, quote, I'm gonna tell you one thing. I'll bleep him up. If he says that bleep again, I promise you, I promise you you think I'm playing I swear to God. I swear to God, I'll bleep you up you and your wife a bleep you up. I promise you on everything. I love on everything. I love I promise you. And so this becomes the thing to talk about on a Tuesday in the NBA when we don't have a lot else to talk about. We can't keep talking about are the warriors vulnerable. We'll find out soon enough. I this is something we'd be talking about regardless. Don't you? Well, I just wonder these fan and these fan player interactions in the case of James Dolan. How how much new ground is there to be covered? You shouldn't treat the athlete inhumanely and the athletes shouldn't respond, but I understand when the athlete responds to being treated inhumanely. And then the league has to step in once it goes viral creates content for all of us the league has to step in and punish this stuff. Because you can't talk to the paint customer this way. But I think just as punitive they have to be with the fans, you can't find the fans so that dude and people have the receipts now on this guy. He's been on Twitter doing this that dude needs to be gone from being allowed to watch games in Utah for a while in as much as you can control it. But after that, what is there to talk about it seems like every time we have this conversation. Where's the new ground? Where's the new terrain to be covered on? Hey, don't talk to the players that. We don't throw things at them. Don't touch them. And if you do what's coming back at you is not going to be pleasant sometime. Well, I did a new ground here is stepping over line. I don't think anyone has an issue. With what Russ said to the guy. It's what Ross said to his wife. I think that's where that's where k not it is not. Okay. Nobody would think that. That's okay. I teams don't need fans desperately enough to put up with that this fan who who has done this before apparently should be expelled should have a season ticket revoked, but at the same time NBA teams travel with a security detail. And so there was a guy. Russell Westbrook could have gone to his security guy. Instead that guy right there instead of dealing with it himself, Greg that's easier said than done when you're in the moment, and the guy is just lobbing insults at you. I mean, you might want to defend yourself. Right. Westbrook did but on top of that he also took matters into his own hands and spoke directly to the and afterward. He didn't he didn't cover for us in any way. That's luminated. The comments about I'll bleep your wife up to like, that's the place where the line is getting crossed. He didn't explain it very well afterward as for his wife. I I've never put my hand on the. I never knew never been any domestic violence before never had before. But once he said to come in his wife repeated the same thing to me as well. So that's kind of how you guys got the individual. But just wanted to video is way, more important in great wonder suspect. We'll didn't what you guys her. So appreciate your donlevatar. The last thing I heard before they turn these microphones on was John Elway shut up. Shut up Elway. Well, said thank you still God's. I'd say that shut up is never well said shut up. Those are two words that are unmistakable. I think it's cut right to the chase. When you say shut up shut up Elway. These are show with his two guys on ESPN radio. ESPN radio is presented by progressive insurance. Jesse James Miller gonna join us in just a second his new film. I am Richard Pryor premiers this Friday at ten pm on the. Paramount network. We're trying to find him. Okay. Here's your sportscenter update, Terrell. Suggs. It was played for the ravens for the entirety of his sixteen year NFL career as informed the team that he intends to Claire for free agency. Ian Rapoport is reporting that he's expected to sign a one year deal with the Arizona Cardinals said Steve Kerr said with a sly smile. Those who read his lips believing that he said, I'm so bleeping tired of dream on's bleep were wrong. Quote, what I said was beg to differ with Mons approach tonight. Those were my exact words, I don't know how somebody misconstrued that. It's because that's not what you said you stop what taken that story seriously. Like, you don't understand sarcasm of a sly smile? Go at finally police in Lathrop. California say suspected shoplifter dragging its higher six pack of beer inside a target dressing room. Officers say that the woman took her car. And he's six pack of Stella or toasts now that I just go stella's, ROY. What did I say Stellan that nice little Stella glass? That's what I said. What did I say before he read that is if he gets the name, right? I say, Stella Artois, most people just say Stella. Fellow toward it. You asked me for Stella Artois when a punch in the face. Okay. Very good or twat. All right. Stella anyway in addressing room and stay there for over an hour of after finishing the beers. You've done that Greg. I'm sure you have after finishing the beers. Police say that the woman left the store with about two hundred dollars in merchandise without pay. The giant junior big cheeseburgers only at Wendy's. Get double the fresh never frozen beef and four strips of apple would smoke bake it alongside for peace nuggets. Small fries at a small drink for the junior price of five dollars available at participating US. Wendy's. For a limited time fresh beef available in the contiguous US Alaskan candidate for all the latest headlines and information tune into the sportscenter on ESPN radio all throughout the day. So I know many of you are tired of collegiate scandals academic scandals. But I've got one for you here. Unlike any I've ever seen we'll get to it in a second because we've misplaced the director for this new Richard Pryor documentary, but we were talking before about whether the worldwide web is a he or is she and tweeter writes in the internet has to be a woman it thinks it knows everything and it never forgets. No-one no-one laugh no-one lead. Don't laugh. It's a tweeter wasn't me. I didn't say that. I did not endorse that con- that concept. I did not notarize it. I just read it and laid a trap give it it's not mine. I just borrowed is sourced. It you just sat back and waited for someone to say thing two of the highest rated women anywhere in sports and recreation abroad to you by card and friends meaning times and Sarah Spain that interview with Sarah Spain drops about a half hour about Abby. So here is the scandal for your perusal. It is great. They're a racket tearing conspiracy charges that were unsealed their coaches that elite schools that have been in snared. And there is Felicity Huffman and Laurie Laughlin mattresses conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud. How the hell like somebody? Explain this to me why. Why is he Huffman and Laurie wire Lori Laughlin and Felicity Huffman involved in a Stanford and USC water polo, and soccer and sailing coaches controversy like this is the best thing I've ever read. Why why think about these sports what is happening here? Somebody explained to me what is happening here. All I've got his famous names near the most mundane of controversy. I thought you read it Becky from full house. I never thought we'd see today where something she would do anything wrong. I mean, she seemed perfect. But apparently, she's paying or has paid a pair allegedly USC nearly a half million dollars to in an effort to get her kid into that school NICKY and Alex. So barely that's what's going on. And so there's a big scandal involves coaches at USC involves the assistant athletic director. There's a lot of stuff going on here. It says the thirties say the coaches accepted bribes in exchange for admitting students as athletes, regardless of their ability. I feel like that's something to Gus would do on his lacrosse team. Shocking. I'm glad you. I'm glad I don't have that. You can't do it. I mean, just assumed that if Lori Laughlin wanted her kids in a Pac twelve schools, she just picks up a phone and Laurie Laughlin gets it done. The seems like a whole to do. I mean, Laurie Laughlin kid must be a really bad student. And and she just wanted to get into good school. Now. What other what are the conclusions? Oftens kid. You put that on recruiting brochure lowering offline kids come here. All right. Put it on the pole Guillermo at lebatardshow would show should Laurie Laughlin kids just get into Stanford because they're Lori Laughlin kid. Oh, I think so I think she went way too far here. Just call up and say, I'm Laurie Laughlin and my kid wants a good at USC consequences. Please tell me there's prison time. I have no idea I'm looking at right now, but she paid a allegedly a half million dollars to USC in exchange for having their two daughters. Designed recruits to the colleges crew teat even though they don't participate in crew thereby guaranteeing their admission into the college. According to the documents is this great. What do we need to do? Wait. Let's find the reporter who can give us as much information as possible on this. Now, we've gotta take a break at noon eastern to talk about the animals and we've got Oliver luck coming on with us. Tossed Stanford Tien, maybe he can maybe he can explain it to it. Maybe we'll ask Oliver luck about that. How much is he making my because a twenty million a year it's been reported? He's making over twenty million a year, and there's all sorts of incentives of taking this league. Very seriously, the XFL bringing high profile coaches slash general managers into the league like Bob stoops, and Jim sworn can you help me understand something pleased because I am worried about Allison's mental state Adam Corolla canceled on us yesterday. Chelsea handler canceled on us today. And now we can't find Jesse James Miller, the director of this new Richard Pryor documentary, Chris Billy, how is she doing back there because I wouldn't really want to be near her in this state. She's surprisingly calm thinks he's on the phone with them right now. But I honestly don't see where they're going to fit today. I mean, unless you do like a five minute interview next time because we have a guest at twelve the twelve thirty. So I don't know what you're going to have to do. But it's her problem to figure out not mine. I should point out. It's the associate athletic director at USC, not the assistant athletic director at USC. Of these schools that are involved here. These are three of the biggest most prestigious schools in the country assistant. What is the difference between? I just wanted to make the correction because daughters interested in that's odd. I'm interested in finding out how William H Macy's clean and all of this. He's married to full city Huffman donlevatar who are the most overzealous fans. Are they Taylor swift has the most over zealous fans she had to be pulled off a stage at Madison Square Garden. I believe swift. He's this with stugatz Harry. Komo's got some some real fans as well. They're crazy those people coma whites. I think they call them VC's live at our show with this two guys on ESPN radio at some point during the show today in the last hour and fifteen minutes, we have left I'm going to go ahead and predict that Greg cody's bobblehead, which is really terrible and makes him look thirty years younger than he actually is by going to fall off of his microphone and make a sound that interrupts our show because he wants it on television. And he is put it in front of the mic flag. How much you wanna bet? Oh, wow. What are the stakes? We'll figure it out in a second. We'll get to a odds are in your favor. Dan, Ron McGill is gonna join us in fifteen minutes, seventy six four five six four eight three seven is the telephone number. If you want to talk to him about the animals gamma, what were you and stugatz talking about during the break because I feel like I heard you coming out in favor of this shouldn't be a scandal. At all these actor. Everyone is doing what they should be doing to promote higher education. Well, I mean, it seems to me like she's being judged for just loving her kids too much. And I'd say if the coach, you know, if the school is involved in this, which I guess, hopefully, they're not involved for their sake. But if the schools involved in this more than just the coach keeping the money this great transaction for the school. Is it not? She pays the school five hundred thousand dollars right to go to get her kids in the school for four years. Let's say the tuition as what like fifty six. Sixty thousand dollars a year right over little more than that. Well, I mean, unless it's a hundred and twenty five thousand dollars a year or one hundred twenty thousand dollars a year, they're coming out ahead financially. So you can give away a scholarship, but your school's gonna make some Bank. This is a business transaction. She just loves her kids way too much because that's way too much money to spend on your kids to send him to school. It is it your kid can't get into that school. They're not gonna make it. I mean, there's a guy gonna change the grades the whole time. I don't know what they're gonna do beyond just getting them in. You do anything for your kids. I hear you. But I think some of this money went directly to the coaches, which is problematic. Right. So he's not going to the school. The coaches are pocketing and his well, she played it all all of wrong. She's Lori Loughlin just call up and throw it your resume. Get my kid in school. And then you have stay most call you have Dave Cooley. Call. You have Bob sagged call. I mean, you have the Olsen twins call. That's how you play it. And then boom, you're in USA. I'm not even against the coach getting a little bit finders fee. Right. They found the cash cow to bring money to the school. They get a little kickback. Right. It was what's wrong with it? I don't understand. I don't know. But usually these investigations are being investigated could someone is making cash they're not paying taxes on like, it's not exactly that a coach declare this this income. I mean, they got it declared his income. It's usually when the government comes around trying to get his money back. So this all comes back to Sam an empty. I love the nother conversation that was going on during the break, and we'll get this in a second. Billy was just trolling Greg. Cody who not but minutes ago did an entire back in my day that was anti themed cruises and then inevitably because cody's narcissists and because Billy's and instigator Billy just tossed to him something really insincere. We'll get to this in a second really insincere. Also, very sincere. Okay. We'll get to it in a second. Because it's funny. But I I'd like to give Greg Cody a chance he hasn't had a shot to take Antonio Brown down. I loved everything that happened there. I'm not even sure why it is that Billy thought I was angry about anything there. I just find it funny that the guy that it was a clown show that toppled the regimen to discipline of football. You cannot argue that football. Or the Steelers won. And you cannot argue that in Tonio Brown loss. He had no leverage. And he got exactly what is what he wanted. That's staggering to me even understanding that guys who have value. Their talent is worth the headache. Even understanding that after a lifetime in sports. I've been stunned that this guy got everything he wanted simply by making an uncomfortable. PR man, I'm all for it. I'm not against what Tonio Brown did. Or how he did it more power to them, especially because in the case of Antonio Brown. And now we're gonna see what happens with Levy Bill. They're both of that precarious career stage sort of late prime. And so that was a factor in how much money I thought each would get an and I'm surprised he got what he did. Antonio Brown's got this is quite the role reversal here. Where Greg Cody is arguing I'm fine with how he did things. I'm not it's horribly unprofessional. It can be both though it could be horribly unprofessional and something that served his knee. I'm surprised as well because grow your old school. Like he missed a game. He made a stink at of one of the most credible organizations at spoiler possible that I'm less forgiving of Antonio Brown than you are the guy who's been castigating the guy who behaves like Antonio Brown through newspaper columns across decades because look levian Brown. Levy, I'm Bill set out an entire season. If I'm a Steelers fan, I hate what he did he cost his team. But these guys have one career these guys have one short career they have five or six years of prime, and they can do with it whatever they want. And so, you know, they're exercising their rights to get what they want and. Don't have a problem with it. But I don't see how love EON Antonio Brown or different. In fact, I would say what Levy on? It was more professional AIT a minute Antonio Brown. Like he said out the entire season. Tonio him fifteen games. What s okay? Let's put that on the poll at lebatardshow, Jake. Day was more fishy out of them more professional about their destruction lady or 'Antonio Brown. Listen to who. I'm having this conversation with its to people who are simply incapable of degrees. They're incapable of nuance. It simply it can't be that. Antonio Brown was wrong and got everything that he wanted. It's Greg Cody for the first time in his career in his sixties. Supporting the misbehaving athlete. Of tell you. I cannot demand consistency of either of these two human beings, but rarely have I seen less consistency than I saw during the break. I've gotta tell you people that story because it was amazing to watch. So Greg, Cody who is so narcissistic that as soon as he finishes his back in my day. We lose him for the rest of the show because he got his star turn and he stopped saying San forgets to put on his headset. He just shoves her own checks out of the show. But he did a back in my day today against the theme cruise like all he did was bash musicians that hurt my grind he took out. Can you like back everything that you said about Kenny Loggins one of the best singer songwriters in US motion picture soundtrack history. Put it on the poll Guillermo is Kenny Loggins one of the greatest songwriters in motion picture soundtrack history. He was right about the gyms on a cruise though. Cruise is a place you go to gain weight and be unhealthy. The healthy stuff away. I am not interested in whether Cody was right or not what I'm telling you is he was strongly and publicly Antiphon crews. And then as soon as the segment was over he met professional instigator, Billy Gill, I waited hallway I waited a segment to give it a little breathing room. And what did you do? And I said because it you know, I had an epiphany. I said, you know, what Greg? We should have show crews, wouldn't that be awesome. And I think it would be awesome. And then we started talking back and forth thinking about the different activities who would be in charge of these who would be in charge of that. And I don't think that this is a bad idea. I mean, I think there should be a welcome night, obviously, like a captain's danger, but it'd be like poppies dinner, and you come and you meet poppy, I'm trying to figure out exactly what rules everybody else should have. So Stu gods? Could be like a dealer. I'm assuming at the casino. But I don't know what Greg would do on this cruise. Exactly, I would be the big then school. Greg Cody on the ESPN radio.

"Hey. Welcome to Keith. And the girl I'm Keith Malley. Be sure to follow us on social media. We are celebrating fourteen years of podcasting be part of the fun. Okay. Ladies and gentlemen. Lemme introduce to you my favorite people. So I assume yours as well. The winner of roast battle also appeared on Seth Meyers cone, and John Oliver's New York stand up show, Mike Lawrence. Hey, thank you. Congratulations on having a podcast old enough to be hit on by Bryan singer. Thank you. It is odd right when Baheen rhapsody wins every single word except best director, and they don't even the knowledge. The director was in the Oscars. I get it. It's just odd. A main. I watched that movie. And I wanted knowledge the director was either right, really bad. Every time. They showed them the recording studio they were accidentally recording another hit song, right? I also joining us from HBO comedy festival Gotham comedy live, Paul Hooper. Hey now, you don't buddy I'm doing. All right. You're not. Thought I'd say, no, I see your social media. You're not doing it so negative because he looks like me if I was doing all, right? Paul on Twitter. You can follow add Paul Hooper. I can do about two more years in society. Tom's send I enjoyed that really of likes. Let people feel that way. That's it doing that. I'm out in two years. I always check the time when people tweet and at seven pm, not a terrible time. It was for me. That's but that's the start of your day. Seven o'clock. I was about to go out in public again. I dreaded it can you ever knew starting. But maybe he just found out about trebek's. I mean, he had all the answers in even. You save the by the way, Mike Lawrence was just on a cruise could you picture being on a cruise? I don't think I could do it. I don't think. So you would die with everybody around you. Right. Yeah. It would be claustrophobic. I would hate it. Dread. The idea of it. I don't want to be about. I was on a very specific grew did the three eleven Caribbean crew owes at three eleven yes. Heard of these rock cruises that might different. Can I tell you of all the quote rocket three eleven what that's gotta be cool. I mean, it made me realize how much I love sublime. Say that because he won't do you say that on sakes? Oh, yeah. I did. I did it stage. I I haven't it won't work. But I did the I wrote out the eleven things I've learned on the three eleven crew. Most of them are making fun of the band. Still super-rich three eleven I looked up net worth. And I was really surprised. I think if you go for this donor audience, you'll always have a net worth with real estate to. I don't know. It's weird. When you see these artists, and there's always something where they did. You didn't know about he he developed a five bread toaster. Yeah. Now something. Yeah. There was an amazing moment the last cruise where somebody said in this was like sincere, we're at the buffet. So, you know, nothing of joy will be said. But they were like, you know, the worst thing about three eleven cruises the day after when I have to go to work and pretend to be something. I'm not oh goodness. That's great who they are as Padre burp. Real some I was in the Bahamas at a resort. And it was a Rick Springfield weekend. Look, the sad stories from the comics. I was on a cruise. I was in love is amazing like they like their white reggae. So they're just visiting the countries they still there. In the TV show crashing which you you win you win or as in past because it's canceled. Well, I'll tell you about this news in case, you don't order. No. But when you weren't crashing you win the roast battle as you did in real life. I thought it'd be funny in the fake life. If you didn't win. I know it's fake but come on. I did one. But anyway, congratulations you want again when do you find out that there won't be a season for of crashing the second? I got off the three eleven Caribbean. Cruise like got a message from my boss the head writer. It was like a gimme code. You have a second. I did. And he told me could you tell that sound of his voice. Yeah. And then he in the sound of his text. Yeah. But then he Brown emoji. Hey, commie Fano is called again by like, Jim minutes later. Oh, sorry. He's like, but you can't you can't let someone go. And then but dial like that. Oh. Oh, maybe they get brought back. Great in the two minutes. Cancel oh. I didn't tell you the whole news. It's going to show. He does right after the I'm dying up. Here was about our ratings. You know, what you take solace in the little thing? There's a new a new superhero movies. So you go out right away and see that. Yeah. That's captain marvel. Now, they're saying a women can do what men can do what do we think of that? Because I saw this one radio ker marvel films. Yes. I mean, I wonder woman. So I'm excited could a woman be a superhero, but they made her so stupid. She goes into a revolving door. She doesn't win. It ends. You know, like don't make the only woman superhero. Moron. I would we think about captain marvel. There's a lot of parallels to wonder woman in it's weird because that's how the sentence starts Paul. You get this. There's a lot of parallels. As you smell the Cheeto dust. One can compare it to this nineteenth century Paul's. Like, I don't know if he's mostly bugles combo. No. But the thing is that like, so so captain marvel and wonder woman, our female, superheroes. That have been around for a long time. One woman nineteen forty one captain marvel nineteen sixty eight knows look at the book look hot, but they're contemporary also. But for some weird reason both the movies are set in the past and are about how they became heroes. But then we're like I'm good and like leave like earth and stuff, and it's like weird. I don't know what the actual message. There is. You know? And it's also, I guess maybe there's something about the unsung nature. Will we supposed to look for messages in unsung nature or was it supposed to hit movie? I thought it supposed to be fun. You know, like fighting latex. Just fascinating to me. They're also like captain marvel is a hero before a lot of the heroes. Like, it's captain American the forties, and then captain him on the nineties. We're still talking about kids movies, right? And just going to. After more the woman. Yes. Yeah. All right. I can do some of that. I have no idea. I will tell you. She got her superpowers by believing in herself that was kind of. You don't you have fans like this. They're like Keith. And who is the girl and has she not get become a woman. You know? Yeah. We dig deep in the dog shit. Yeah. And then we make fun of it also can handle. I mean you. Cryer aware. You know, I go to therapy now and miser who Stanley was when I talked about his death. You know, it's fucking Harvey. How much does it? When you see how these super movies come out a lot? But still there is a big distance between it one is mediocre. I didn't think this one was good. Is it a real bummer? Like fuck to it. Marvel has a formula marvel has amazing for me that we're they've made five great movies out of twenty. But they just distance them enough that you're like taking do no wrong. And like this wasn't bad. It wasn't great. Like it became Popeye at the end. She had all these powers. There was no threat to her. There was no fun villain or fun villain fight. They took the scrolls who are great adversaries and made him into a refugee metaphor. When you get it done that for any alien race and still made them cool than threatening. It sounds like you're talking about a drug. You know what I mean like chasing the high. And you know, this is going to bum you out like the heroin may or may not work. But every once in a while kicks it up a notch, and you're good, and there's moments even in this like when she does power up at the end like this pretty cool. Like, it's funny because we're talking to silver people. And I'm like is it just like alcohol guys does he sound like he's he needs a drink. I never vault. Paul did all of the drugs call I would have. I'd never do. You missed do you. Are you quiet during these movies? Do you? Find yourself mumbling bullshit. Turn to your wife and be like, there's no way this this isn't what has she's amazing because like she decides within ten minutes whether or not g likes them, and then I could just tell oh, she hates this. She didn't really like this one. And then I kept trying to give it a chance and there will be moments. Like, pretty good. But but but it's fine because it's like, you got Infinity war and catamaran was going to be in that as being awesome in that. You know, they don't all have to be great. There's like nine of them year. Now, the summary of your view is they don't all have to trade. The don't doctor strange wasn't great. The ant man movies. Kind of suck. There's one good ironman out of three. This is great. We've three thousand episodes have to be great. Win lose them. I'm reading a story about a department of motor vehicles examiner here in queens, charged with the manning bribes to pass drivers taking the road tests and groping female applicants we need a female superhero. What does he groping them? Because now I have to make decisions because I think I've take my test. Ian, coif -i thirty five. In queasy. In one incident. He was administering administering a road tests to a woman in the story when he asked if she had any money, she said, hi, when the applicants said, no he took hold of the steering wheel pulled the car to the curb the man that one hundred dollars for a passing great. She didn't even finish the test yet when she refused he said all right twenty dollars. Oh, quite negotiator. Yeah. Then she said, no, thank you. And then he placed his hand on her leg up her shirt and land said oh maneuver is on her leg up her shirt leg swoop. And then he said, okay you passed. David ghost. So he went in there. So he went in the I'd like to the lawyer on the stand. So he went in there s he went in there. You know, I like putting myself in that. And I would love it. If my response would be to punch him in the dick, but it never has been. I need to make that part of the repertoire, oh now, I punch you in the dick. Okay. We all got what we wanted. Well, that's what was cool about captain marvel everybody she fought was only with the punches. The dignity goes. I honestly tell me from wrong. I'm for when it comes assuming you know, there's enough evidence. I'm for the death penalty when you work for the government in your you're taking advantage of people like this cops even DMV workers. You're given your given so many perks at work, and it's a position of power. It's the death penalty. No question, not all I had to learn a lesson about grabbing tits to pass people driving, which they need yet death penalty. I'm with you penalty. No question feel like working for the government is its own form of the penalty. I mean, you know, you're going to retire in twenty years. You know, you have a steady job, you know. It's not hard. I see as it is hard though, post office of heart. I wouldn't want to work at the post office. You guys wouldn't wanna work at any of these jobs. Don't do this MVP working the DMV. I mean like that feeds itself the people that work these jobs are assholes. But it's also they have to be because the people that come in are assholes, but maybe they come in being Astles because people that worked Rasoul's, I don't know where it starts. But I saw sanitation guy trash man, they make tons of money here. I got off to like I was behind. This trash are able to get this guy. Looks amazing. He was like fit. It was great. And then look it up. They make eighty grand a year here. I was in a band for like a minute with a garbage, man. Holy shit. This guy was like forty years old and just fit as fuck didn't. He would take off his shirt anytime for any reason, Mike, oh, I see a great living in New York. But whatever it's all right. It doesn't seem like open. Then he cleans up that doesn't seem like a bad living. I been behind these trucks. They don't care joyriding. They take the guy handing out on the side one. It does look on them hit cars and just keep going. You gotta have amazing rebroadcast strength to do that. Yeah. This guy looked amazing specimen the rock in the back of trash from. I can't picture when the MTA started our subway system, or when the DMV started or what any of these jobs started. It was a bunch of cherry people going around, and like I can't wait to be off fishing. And then too many of us came in with that attitudes changed everything. Now, I know that that doesn't happen because I worked retail, and I was a cashier and they didn't change me. Right. I I was still me. I didn't go. What are you want or just want next? Yeah. I've I help you. This is my job. Like, I don't I didn't roll my eyes. I didn't anything changed overtime at McDonalds seven years. You're not supposed to be there. Come on government people like forty so it's like after a while, you know. They were all gung ho in their subway booths. Like, well, let me tell you when the next train's not come. And then all of a sudden, they're like, no, I think the sleep. Fascinated by that I taught this my roommates every time like someone moves and york-new room. It we have the same conversation of why would you be a UPS driver in the city? Why like you should come to city for things? You can't get everywhere else jobs entertainment stuff like that. But I don't understand like postal, why wouldn't you move to Tampa and do that and not deal with this traffic or these human beings, eight million people in your way because jobs like that? And you could also live a better life in Des Moines, Iowa being a postal carrier. Then you can in queens, like it's crazy that you deal with all how many people do you see working literally shuffling their feet? So that should be a government organization that points them out and go no fake. No, no, there's there's no reason to live in New York or LA list. You have another reason to we like. We're like looking at like house now. And the saddest thing is watching HDTV, and realizing what we could actually do with the money, we have it's so depressing. Do you think that some people if you a lot of people here because they grew up here. And then the other reason is may be to enjoy the things that the other the people are making like I like going to comedy clubs in their dance things in the city and art and a lot of people in queens that never go to the city any more. They're over. I've had that I've had that the neighbors that just don't go to Manhattan, they haven't gone in twenty years in queens across the bridge. Also, get a lot more out of doing the show here than if he did it somewhere else like the amount against that. You're able to get access, and I think that's what Paul saying if there's a reason like right or or the entertainment, but if it's for the Applebee's, they're everywhere. Charlotte's Lauretta anywhere. You can do that. Can't was the Applebee's. That's what I was trying to Paul where would you live? If you weren't a comic. I think of it all day long every day Santa Fe with you aren't things of it onstage says it out loud. But he right now, you don't fuck. This fucking Albany. Definitely thinks about it. Seven eight PM. Absolutely. I think of top three I'm like Santa Fe New Mexico, maybe boulder, although it's a college town. I would hate that Asheville North Carolina. And then think about the internet Yash great town in there for a little bit of love. And it's like, but the secrets out on like the money's coming in getting pretentious put it's like medium size towns or have an access to a pharmacy. I'm not out off the grid. He'd been near CVS. Medication and the sport and stuff. And then, but I'm in a small town is not eight million people around me in like that. I mean, the over the big city, should I just I wanna go I wanted to go eight years ago, but I still do comedies like to stay here. Right. But I wanna be gone so bad. I sell innoc- posit that why would you say that just won't because 'cause it'd be fun to me. I don't have to live with them. I'd like to hear what happens, you know, the people thinking about giving a government job short son scam. Yes. Kid not to catch the ball. What's going to happen is you'll get the ball? Then you look at it. And you realize how much disappoints you at. So it's better just a altogether. Take those dives and soccer at a young age. I met your mother, and then why she left. Did you did you want kids? You know? Never. It's never I've never dreamed of it. I've never had a body to advocate, and he's just he's always saying that I wanna baby why I never had that feeling. I'm telling you, maybe there's a glitch in me. But I've never wanted a smaller. I'm never wanted to child. I don't understand wanting it. The people are like, oh, you're you're going to want anything times for me going to want to that you're still hoping for. But you don't look around at all these people were talking about hating, and that you have to put more good into the world. Put more good in other way. I don't want kids, but I really wanna Jizan of China without a condom. It's only the by product. Is about twenty years. Somebody told me that once my brothers would have a kid. I would see like me a kid. So my ego is gonna wanna kill like, I'm gonna see my eyes in small version. I'm gonna want. It was like, listen if you're right. You're right. I'll get pregnant then my brothers had babies. Wow. You guys are tired, right? And the person. That's that's you isn't allowed at thanksgiving anymore. Please put my child down looking, and it's me you guys ever feel like yo your parents, the millions of dollars. They spent on you. Yes. I apologize to my mom all the time. I feel like I'm like, I hope I could pay your back. But now like sh-, I think twenty million I think twenty million thirty you spend twenty she's been twenty million on everything from toys to healthcare all the stuff. She was single working mother for and I was drunk. She got twelve bonus year she got eighteen plus sober up thirty on in those twelve years. I don't know she had a bail me out a few times, not literally I would find my way out of jail, but she was. You know, help me here and there, and then I was just like drunk or whatever till thirty. So she got three decades, you know, obligated to eighteen I mean, she didn't support me all of that time, but she would help me out of jams, and then but for eighteen years, I dropped out of high school twice in tenth grade. I mean, I was just like I hit puberty should good kid until Hubert. And then I just made it I think I my parents about six thousand dollars in that comes to forty dollars. I got in a birthday card. I don't know what I got. I got to be on the slot. Lot of flea markets. You've got the leftover milk that they added water to before they served, right? I'm excited about it. You know, just sick ago. A LEGO movies alone. I do think it'd be good. If I had tons of money. Wow. Tons of money. Enjoy having the Ken like, let's go to the pool. But you could be as good anything with five million dollars. You know what I mean? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It would definitely make me center. This scandal. That's going on now with the Laurie Laughlin, you know, like the fifty people that like bribe their way into colleges like the kids in the college where it's like the kids are dumb, but they're also like partially dumb. Probably because the parents were too busy to spend time with him because he's all like executives. Right. So you haven't shit you have about fifty rich families, including the stars Lori Laughlin Anpac near and Felicity Huffman from desperate housewives American crime. Interesting these titles of the way. And it's not necessarily they gave not who knows. But supposedly it's not that the schools themselves knew about the scam of being paid off. So that a dumb kid could get into an Ivy league school. You're paying this middleman who's in charge of your SAT's. And who has you know, carries a good word falsifying SAT scores. Falsifying a C T scores. Falsifying without exaggeration that these kids were excellent in a certain sport. They would Photoshop the kids face on some great yada. No, hey, my. Application just pay for them to go to yachts. Yacht school for year. They go what are you gonna do when you're actually in college pickup that or or what actually got on because they s one of the kids what they didn't. Like, I was paid to go to yachts. Right. Just cokes away. That keeps it about the story. List doesn't sound right. Well, Kerry cut it posted something about it saying that, you know, people rezone or they pretend they have different addresses in order to go to the public schools that other people are more privileged to go to obviously better based on where you live. Yeah. Absolutely knew people who did that in queens. It was like Cardoza and Forest Hills and certain schools, you could just say that your aunt lives, there, whatever they arrest mothers who do that. And they mostly arrest. Black mothers is what I understand. And so this is just to go to the public school that if you live down the block, sometimes you just not zoned for the right school and. And they're arresting people. But here it's just going to be a scandal for a little minute. Who's going to go to jail for this it sounded like a big deal it sounded supposedly people can get up to twenty years in prison. The main who are they jailing for this? You know what I mean? Loosely Huffman, right and imprisons going to be a full house. They wanted their kids in these schools for prestige. They really want to kids educated because everything you're William H Macy's kid right on drugs. Everything's fine. Yeah. Whether you go to USC or not he tried meetings fine way mates. Macy's on the run right now. He's talking to a cop and just start running in park. He's going to be big trouble. Now. You're right. I think it's just the kids going, but I wanna do and they go, right? If this is what you like, your parents are two famous actors don't do heroin, and you're fine. The rest of your life, sixty years nothing. Right. Just just don't begin Astle. But like one cares. If you've got a degree. I am sorry in around guy. It made me so fucking angry. I heard something about Dale Earnhardt senior famous race car. Driver was always ashamed he dropped out of high school in haunted him, and that's treated, son. And I'm like you fucking you have four hundred million dollars. Why would you ever care? What happened when you were third. You've done more than everyone else. It'd be I hate when people like, I'm I'm ashamed adopted you have one hundred million dollars. Fuck everybody. Right. Maybe he's lying because he thinks that's what you're supposed to say. Because if he did finish high school he handles that was it everything he couldn't as career until he hit a wall. I graduated high school. I call it was more of like a boom. That's. Your brain is very special. My my stepdad's favorite NASCAR driver, Dale Earnhardt. I went to his favorite Dave Matthews bans on I went to go with his son and Dale jR. Yeah. That was that was all I heard was in heart for years right school? These some of these kids get mad at their parents like now, they're like, oh, great mom. I'm embarrassed. Now that I got into this college, but not unlimit reasons urine. Thank you could go this college. You are a moron. Do you? Remember when you did there say t's with your eyes closed fucking. You were hung over from another party. You know, many languages, you would know you actually, listen to the people who really the raising of you. Fifty people including wealthy parents. Let coaches and test proctors or busted in a coast to coast college admission scandal that saw underqualified students fraudulently accepted and some of the top schools in the nation. Thirty three D pocketed. Parents are accused of giving twenty five million dollars latte from twenty eleven to two thousand eighteen to cheat their way into admissions at schools such as Yale Georgetown, Stanford Wake Forest USC. I bought a Harvard shirt the worst Justice Mawlid pretended to have a son that he bribed, right? He's pushing it. He's really, you know, what I like about all of this is this takes colleges down another notch. Because they they just keep raising the price and their value has not gone up. And people are starting to not care again about college at the center of the white spread scheme is William Rick singer, a well-connected college prep expert who fun. Donald the cash, and he's he's emitting that he's guilty. He's hanging. Everybody out to dry funneled the cash through a sham nonprofit and paid off cohorts to either fudge SAT ACT scores loud. There's so many crimes in that sentence or allow applicants to apply as coveted sports recruits. The me that's the funniest one. Like all right, go run and catch that ball. He like a pattern. What is I heard that word? What do you want me to do? The basketball team is just like eight seven foot tall guys. Laurie laughlin. One of these things is not like the other. We Lau daughter wearing jets uniform picture. This doesn't look right. Some parents paid as much as six and a half million to singer. But the average was about two hundred fifty thousand four hundred thousand dollars. So imagine you find this. You know, everybody's gonna rat on everybody else because if you spent six million dollars and your dumb kid newfound out, Felicity Huffman, only spend two hundred thousand dollars can I'm gonna do some gap. And I'm angry, you know, six million dollars. But then you actually have to go to that school. And learn things you don't though that not right doesn't that by you as across the board. We're not talking. He doesn't want to the crime is once it starts doesn't stop. Then there's other scams and shit that you just do to cover up your dump kit, right because then you have to keep bribing people. Because once the kid is in there. It's like well now, the teachers are gonna know that he's a moron tonight. Gotta bribe teachers the F B I came to know exaggerate their morons. You didn't get into Harvard. Just such a more. You know, the saddest thing is like all these kids like are going to. These schools, and then the only jobs they're going to get her for their parents production, jump, right? Yeah. Right. But he think you're qualified Honey because I went to Harvard there. We're not talking. This is the oh, so I was going to say the FBI went to Felicity huffman's door with their guns drawn when they arrested her. So I don't know if it's just the scare her to get her to talk or what? But it is a bigger deal than I thought something like this would be. It's just interesting like I get that. It's a big deal. That's very good but guns drawn like this isn't. I do it. If I drop gun on, Felicity Huffman. What every show she's Nestle? She just start firing. Like, what are they what's with all the guns? Don't reach for. Often going for a night. William H Macy comes out with a shovel because the show learning. We're not talking about donating to a building. So school is more likely to accept your son and daughter were talking about the -ception and fraud fake test scores fake athletic credentials, fake, photographs bribed college. The fficials singer is charged with racketeering conspiracy money laundering, conspiracy, obstruction of Justice and conspiracy the fraud the US that's not a good one. I'll get your kid in college. They don't actually give shit about right? But they don't need. Yeah. Imagine they get in like in the first semester, they like Janas, and they quit like, you know, what it turns out. Most of his associates in the college coaches are charged with conspiracy to commit racketeering. So this is all to get homework. So when I say sometimes the school doesn't know I don't know if they did. But the coaches certainly new, you know, if you have a guy that never played this sport. And so those people have to be paid directly the parents uniformly face charges of conspiracy to commit. Mail fraud and honest services fraud by us, there's an honest services fraud us, the law is a tricky. Among those were TV. Actress flippity Huffman, Laurie Laughlin Lawson's husband for whatever reason. William H Macy seems okay fashion designer Laurie. Laughlin husband, a famous fashion designer the alleged scam had two components on focused on academics that involved singer paying bribes the test proctors, so you would take your ACT or SAT. And then this guy would change all the answers after you took. That's how the kids might not know. I mean, I get that. It's a lot of money. But this is what your life is worth. Right. Yeah. Hardest pumping over you know, number two pencils in racing. You know singer has grease the wheels. He says for nearly eight hundred families is he loaded. Where's all the millions? Right. He shouldn't he have like eight hundred million at least. Okay. So some of these people spent. Five million dollars? It said no say that right now. No, totally that was that would have been about the total. But yeah, one guy was six mil one family with six million others were a couple of hundred thousand and so then the person who would actually do. So he was the middle guy. He was the main guy then the person who flubbed the test would get paid ten thousand dollars for each time. This should make a movie about this. Goodwill bunting. Loyd. Laughlin husband, you know, who he is. He's on Muslim mo- fashion line took that full house money in that should he clothing line money. But I'm just thinking like their life Maasim already in LA kids. Yeah. I don't know why they care they go to school. It's prestige rich people just lose their mind. Right. I want this. I'm gonna get it's peaceful. Weird peer pressure and your brags their friends, and you're right. You're right. You're showing your good parent because your kid is smart. It's just weird competitive thing amongst people it's totally competition. If you're the only one in your group of friends that's kid is. I mean, it's time for parents to be proud of that got fucking dammit have a brain. I made you and then like keep on going because there is something like the sympathy. I do have for the kids is that they are just pawns in this greater image. You know, like, maybe maybe gotta beat sympathetic towards rich kids. But maybe there into other shit and stuff and what they wanna do. But it's like, the parents are making them fit into this mole. They probably had to go to all these shitty premier parties and stuff that they never wanted to. And they'd rather be at sleepovers with their friends. Well what? But they do again the kids have to know whenever they go to the the sports angle, right? Yeah. I know that this article says some simply never showed up for the athletic some showed up with an injury in some played briefly. And. Quit. So you're already in the coaches charged include the head sailing coach at Stanford a woman soccer coach at Yale singer is is faces up to twenty years in prison. It's unclear what if anything the colleges involved will do about the students who got in threw deceptive practices of their parents. What do they care, right? The money's. The money's coming in separately to them just point out that the name of the story is the old college y in that clearly was written by someone who worked hard for their degree. That's what college does someone went to journalism school. Their ass and said, I got it DO college by. Andrea is writing you are the extension of their reputation. That's why rose stays hush-hush both super rich and super poor families surprisingly parallel experiences. She's been doing a little research respite and six states as a result of the ten month investigation. The investigation was called operation varsity blues. Oh, everyone's cute bodies club. Corning you can still have fun at work. What if at midnight was just the world now? Thank you. That is amazing to me though, the FBI agents had their guns drawn at flippity huffman's house. She was handcuffed spent hours in federal custody at a detention center in downtown LA. It would be pretty interesting to be in jail for a crime. Like this right is what do you do there? I learned my lesson. No gotta go work out. And the kids know what the parents are what is the due to their family. Now. You know? Yeah. Yeah. You're also teaching you know, you're teaching your kids if you don't do it. You can just throw money at it scam. It when you gave the money you gave it to this nonprofit that the singer supposedly set up so everything's tax deductible. Just a little bonus. Huffman appeared in court judge set bail for two hundred fifty thousand dollars. She said, look, I'm broke. Laughlin daughter has been online and people are mad at her because she saying about how even though she's in USC. She doesn't know how many classes will be able to go to before the scandal came out. What what happened what? So let's see Laughlin and her husband paid five hundred thousand dollars in bribes to get her daughter, Libya Jade and her older sister into the college under the guise of them being crew athletes, even though neither participated in competitive rowing ever. Despite the big investment Olympia Jade posted a video on YouTube last year declaring she didn't quote really care about school. But wanted to quote experience the party, I don't know how much of school, I'm gonna tend. She said great kids. She is up to let's see one point three million followers on Instagram, for example, three million two million on YouTube. She saying that she would go to Fiji for work during her first week of school and the New York later in the year again, USC, southern California. But I'm gonna go in and talk to my deans, and everyone and hope I can try and balance it all out. And then this happens come out of your later. What are you doing? I mean, that's I think that that's just regular life right now should get a Fiji for six months. This this proves she so stupid that she was Baden. I know, and it's like you're doing all these like shortcuts and shit when you could work hard and be a self made billionaire Carly. And I don't I just think that it proves the bubble that she's in. You know what I mean? Like, she doesn't understand. What was weird about her posting that or saying that how did you know her and her parents actually live in a bubble in the sky where they look down on the rest of society every once in awhile Pene, my vacuums. The investigation began when thirties received a tip about the Skien scheme from someone. They were interviewing in a separate case. Authorities said coaches in such sports soccer sailing, tennis, water polo and volleyball took these payoffs. Here's what you do you make them compete, and you put that on TV. Handle comes out. I was talking yesterday to to comics Jackie for back in Camille Theobald. And they were saying it was really interesting. How a lot of like this now is because of Trump in the sense that like we just hate rich people now like in even BRIC brick people hate Trump because there's so much more spotlight on this type of wealthy asshole. That some of their secrets and stuff are now being exposed in a way that they weren't before that we're just more critical of that type of douche a same Leanne, Tila just more critical of it or would just it's just illuminate. It's China's some like why do we let them get away with all this stuff? Why are they able to do this shitty shit? I all I have been saying that we just have Twitter now. So we're hearing it more all I want is a Trump was like catalyst in some ways of just. Like us. I can't I can't argue that Trump is a catalyst for a lot of shit is social change. Just the rebellion of his awfulness. Yeah. What a trickster for good. He is right. I'm fascinated. How much how much more they want? All the wealthy people whether be Trump or these parents right fascinated once you've arrived there. I wanna see the first thing at the school gym. You say you're a weightlifter. And then the coach has all right. Chalk up. Starts drawing on the chalk board, and I will work out now. Doing the Amazon thing with the not paying any taxes where it's like, you gotta have it. All fun all of it. Yeah. It's once you once it starts, you can't. I guess what gets you there can't be turned off. I just know. And then you're taught by someone who's already there a lot of time. Yeah. You know, the Robert Kraft the owner of the New England Patriots got busted getting a rub and tug from what turned out to be place based in human trafficking. Now, there's pictures of the owner of that place. Orchids Veja hanging out with Donald Trump, whatever what a world he's involved scandals that evolved aflaid balls. Beautiful world. You're right. Right. God. That's fascinating. It's just I don't I don't know. Once someone's has a billion dollars. I'm still fascinated how I mean some of them might love their work. But most you couldn't I'm just like why not disappear go go fish until everyone of Faulk off. And why would you take another meeting? Why would you answer another phone call? But you can't pop on people that you like three people. I love my mother. Van Linda gonna love you guys. Counts. Group part of the reason people that win the lottery become poor again because they've never been taught or raised in that like this environment. So they just spend money without thinking about and do dumb shit when it's like, they don't know how to make more excuse me. Andrea has been studying narcissism. Here we go you get there usually because you're narcissist. We're talking about how to get shoes. Working at a comedy podcast studying nursing. Nicest don't believe the rules of society apply to them. They have to be better than people. It's how they keep their self esteem external validation, I I wonder about that like would would people be further in their career. If they were narcissist assholes like everyone in this room is really nice. Would we be further in our career? If we stepped on other people, and I don't I don't know how to at Andrews yelling. Yes in I think. Be jealous enough sometimes I don't care enough, and I sort of antisocial, and I think it's fucked me in my career my life. I know they win my work, and I like disappearing which doesn't work. Really? Yeah. Like people who hang out, then they they start getting employed by their friends who get more in the career. And I don't know there's like an ego there that I think has to happen. What about you? I mean, I think the narcissism and like I mean, there's a lot of things like just the working in caring about yourself so much that all you do is work like, which I think with social media and all that we've convinced ourselves to work harder than we ever have like comedians. We used to wake up at seven forty five and do the eight o'clock show. Now, we have to wake up at seven PM. And right awful tweets hit or so what it's done to really. Really? All of us like now, it's like a twenty four seven job where we're even trained to be narcissism even more in it is fucking exhausting. And it's like, I would rather be like comfortable and be able to spend a lot of time with my wife and my dog and our kids, hopefully, and whatever then focus so much on work and everything and be so self obsessed all the time, it's like seems miserable. Yeah. And it really does feel like I mean, we still reward the loud mouth and society, and it shows the media's just empowered extroverts, and they're fucking saying nothing that and it's just too much allowed like wins the most positive wonderful place. I love comedy. I still love. I still love you onstage a lot. Yeah. I don't only to. Yeah. Andrea's dying to to share something with us. I don't know if you if you read anything about like narcissist. Like a lot of them are this. I don't know if you're reading them to a lot of them are captains of industry because like imagine how effective you would be. If you didn't consider anybody else in your decision making like how much less time, you would like how much more time you be able to focus on purely your success. I have thought of that. Because I do think a lot about other people before I step on anything, and it really does drag on. And I do see other people just going for it and flaking on people and not caring. But I don't I don't think I can do it. And I think I think, but I think if I were to do it other bad shit would happen. Well, yeah. Of course, it's a it's a it's a morally bankrupt way to live your life. Like, you you can be very wealthy. But it's also like the reason why they need to be successful constantly like they have to up the ante all the time is that they're they're they hate themselves. Very deeply like it's not a it's not someone who feels good about themselves. I'll do you hate yourself. Yeah. I think so you do why don't you get the other fun, nurses, all the perks? Why isn't pound kind of narcissism, I guess defeating? It's like there's there there are I agree that like narcissism has become celebrated in society. Like as a societal thing. We've definitely the curve has moved much further that way, but there are people who have like narcissistic personality disorders, and those are people who are like captains of industry or my dad, or you know, whoever. But but. Get Andrea album. Does get a shout out my first hour of standup. But but the thing is if you're always deflecting on being either better than other people or climbing. It's because you don't at your core. You don't feel good about yourself, and that's not to make this a more sympathetic character. But the it never ends like the the pain never ends for them. It's kind of like how people it it's it's like a work a lot of nurses are workaho, Alex because it distracts from there, the empty chasm that is their soul that sounds really dramatic. But it's it's how a lot of them feel in the interest in it. You said about the captains of industry thing when you talk about the scandal where it's like when they have problems in their field. And they're just like just throw money editor like fix it. Or whatever it's like with these kids. They could spend the time. They couldn't hurt her. The could make these kids, you know, smart enough or caring enough about school. So that they naturally do get in. But it is just easier. Now believe maybe. Maybe they are doing that. They're just the kids are not getting into Harvard that doesn't mean that actual dumb dumbs. Maybe they are getting the nurturing in whatever probably not because there you go maniacs. They should on Twitter. But but they are still about eighteen years old and still fuck faces for a little while they are raging against whatever machine they were raised in. So if that was you know, the narcissistic like over exploded, overly whatever is going on in their house, overly rich, then they're just raging against that. If they were poor they would rage against that will just it's just a raging age. This has been going on for almost ten years. So that means that we're conversations like dad fuck you. I was at Yale. If you only thank you. Thank you. Andrea allen. I have been looking up narcissism also because I'm pretty sure I was married to one. But I I look it up in reference to a romantic relationship. So it's it's weird when it comes up like in more financial business intuitions picture, your dating while these people too that just got out at one of the kids know, you're smart. You're involved. And that's the thing. It's like from now on there just dopey for, you know, their parents trying to get them into Ivy league schools like wait. I'm smart. I just didn't want to go to jail or I had to perfect for them in a way because they fucked up their college career and other titles more money. I can't I didn't it wasn't good in graduate ruin my college. Twenty million early smart benign understand when the check comes. Why always take it? Can we all agree that if you are one of these kids, obviously, you knew that your face was Photoshop on a professional yada death penalty? Because because I would have done what my parents told me to do if they would've said this is right because whatever cockamamie story I was supposed to follow. What my parents did. I'm sure I did some dumb shit because that was their truth the less thought-through prayers years. Okay. Very good. Mike lawrence. You can follow on eighteen nine Mike. You weren't listening.

Mason and Ireland HOUR ONE

"This is the where the hell is Ramona growl, Mason, Ireland, what is up Momo's late. What's the status report on Momo? She has now parked parked. So she parked literally thirty seconds ago. Okay. So we should ever any minute. But in the meantime, right, the mation Mason show rides again. I like the mation mation show. I've Shivnarine ash. So Lakers win last night. Can't even tank right seriously? Can't even tank, right? That was a brutal win. Do you actually root for losses games? I don't watch the game and root for losses. Just afterwards. Hope that they lost. So basically, I did not watch last night. So if you were watching the need to watch these games anymore. They're not they are not competitive. No. You're not what you're you. Don't need to watch G leaguers. I'm watching college basketball. No, I'm not no, you're not. But so if you let's say you actually watch this game last. Let's let's pretend I watched it. Sure. Did you would you actually root for them to lose? If you were watching it. Yes. Really? Yes. See I can't root for them to lose. But I'm happy if they lose see I can because I'm a realist and the reality is the team is nowhere right now. The one thing that they can the one way for this team to get better right now is for them to lose. It's just it's. It's just plain and simple. I was pulling some numbers today in here. Let's put this into some perspective right now with that win the Lakers thirty one and thirty six they've got if the season froze today if it ended they have a seven percent chance of getting the number getting top four pick and a one point five percent chance of getting the number one overall pick. Now, they could get just looking at it realistically, they could get as high or low depending on how you wanna look at this as the sixth worst record in the league Dallas is twenty seven and forty so therefore four games up on or down on Dallas in the reverse standings. And that's reachable if they were to be the six they've got a thirty seven percent chance of being the top four pick and nine percent chance of being the number one overall pick that to me indicates, and I really wish that. That LeBron who's got three. Oh, hey, that concludes Mason show. It's pretty good. I thought. Yeah. I'd give myself a participation river dress. You know, what is going on? Yeah. I've I've cut ten pounds in the last three weeks. So all of a sudden my wardrobe is expanding again, the stuff I couldn't wear during my fat days. I'm able to wear now. What's interesting, though, is that like I kind of use to you in like just Shmatko close. Right. What are smarter? That's like a Yiddish word for like, you know, sweatpants and Surya shirts T shirt. That's what I wear, but now everything fits, so I'm going to wear more stuff. I'm trying to I'm trying to cut. Wait. The I got real fat there. I I got I notice because you were wearing sweats got fat fat. Did you notice? How fat I got there. No. I didn't notice it. But you talked about it a lot. I think we've got we've gone the opposite way though, you're wearing nicer clothes because you can fit into them. Whereas I'm wearing non nicer clothes because I can't figure up. Yes. I'm fattening season. Yeah. No, I really happy with it. I'm on one of those kind of Kito light kind of thing. Okay. Just a few servings of carbs a week. I think that's really good. Actually, I think that's actually probably works. The best of any diet. You can do that means no desert, no donuts. No donuts what's happening to the donuts store. Then they were you were probably keeping them a float donuts store is hurting. Sorry. Decays doughnuts. I am. No longer a regular. I'd like to point out that this is the eleventh call I've gotten from seven six to five five three dash four block it. Oh. Walk into what's going on with Facebook Instagram today, are they down. I think it's probably like like Facebook is Instagram. Right. I think something's down everyone's selling me that Facebook Instagram down to that. Up a buck and a buck twenty nine no the actual app Ingraham. Get on Instagram is telling me could not refresh. Yeah. A massive hack. Okay. Why would like to point out that these phone calls? These robo calls now. I mean is it is it just me or they got in control out of control for everybody control. And you know, every time you get a call from a number that, you don't know you just go into your settings, and you block them. Yeah. But they keep changing their they're using spoof. No, they're using numbers. That's not even real number. It's not even like even actual phone number. Although earlier today it said Russia. Yeah. You should just block all of it. So I don't know how to blocks up, but I'll say this John John Oliver did see John Oliver Sunday night. What he his advice way did a whole thing on robo calls. The whole thing is never answer. Never because if you answer they realized that there's a person at the other end of the line, and then they will day lewd you with calls or deluge. Yeah. That's a word. Yeah. But if they do that at the same time, if you just hit decline, doesn't that also tell you that the re that you're real. So if you have to just let it kinda go by itself. Yeah. Let it go by don't even hit too close. Don't even Klein because it recognizes that somebody did mind. Yeah. I mean, I would vote for whatever presidential candidate who says they're going to stop robocalls. Yeah. It's like it's like one of my biggest annoyances every single day. They're really they're really really annoying especially on your cell phone when you get on your cell phone like that is do you have another phone. No not anymore. I don't have that means you can reach me anywhere, and they never leave messages. And it's always like as a like, I'm doing interviews. Like, I'm doing I'm I'm feeding the my son. I'm in the middle of stuff. Like, I'm out in dry like I don't want you to reach me anywhere. When used to have your home phone. They would just have to leave a message. If you went there are no call list home, it's work. And now, they don't have a no call list for this you for cellphones. Do they have it doesn't work? None of it works. If anybody has information on a no call list for cellphones. I would love that. All right. So we were just talking Momo and we'll bring. Talking about how disappointing it was the Lakers on you kidding me told you they were to win are. No, it's did I tell you. They can't even tank right now, they didn't do it bass. I'm either this is where LeBron really cause LeBron needs to shut it down. I mean, they had to get a win. They lost five in a row and everyone in that locker room night talked to when I was there at the games in LA. They were all the players that got to get a win, man. It's so depressing. When I wanna see this south bay Laker suited now that they got to win. They can go ahead and lose because they got they have a really hard games now. Yeah. No. They they go really tough. Thank the bulls are worse. Their second worse team in the league, record wise. But the thing is the bull at that point where they're going to be bottom three, no matter. What happened? Yeah, they're bad. And so they don't have to tank now they they should try to win. Yeah. Just for the sake of. Yeah. Building something. Yeah. Exactly some confidence momentum. They actually both of those actually kind of a good wing. The bulls have been better since they traded fraud. Reporter no that's been a good acquisition. It didn't by Robin. Lopez Al which everyone was waiting to see if they would everybody was kind of excited about Robin Lopez on the biomarker and Chicago did what they always do which is like never they never like to buy players, and they never liked to leave any money on the table. You realize that no team in the NBA has lost more games over the past six years than the Lakers. That's that's depressing on one fifty six and three twenty. How is that? True. Like, it's just hard to believe because there's so many bad because other teams have gone up one good year next. I'd one good. You all you need like one good year. Had now six bad years even last year when they had a better year was not good. Yeah. That was the thirty five win team. Yeah. This is now thirty one win team. Gosh, thirty one wins. What do they finished with? How many how many wins they finished with Beijing? Joel. No, I hope not. So do you think they win more absolutely no incentive? Doing what's the point of winning these the odds get? Way better. If they the odds get way way better if they get to search sixth under the seventh because they that's when you start getting increased odds of getting into the top, right? You can't get higher than the six. There's too much distance. But I was just saying if they could if they could get to Dallas which overtake them for the six they would have thirty seven percent chance of being the top being in the top four and a nine percent chance of number one overall. Wow. Play for that man plate from that Braun shut it down. You're strange somebody for that your hair hurt your teeth, which shut it down and they're not mathematically eliminated. But they're pretty darn close. Yeah. I mean, they're they're. Yeah. They just suited up. Andrea Ingraham last night. Now, they're eliminated. Did you plan two minutes? Yeah. He'll play more. I can't bring myself to watch. I watched last night. I want you really. I couldn't bring myself because I was I saw that they were down like third. Thirty four to sixteen in the first quarter. And I was like, ooh, this is gonna be a bad one. So that I said I better start watching because I knew it was on with you today. But I also knew. You know, I was going. I was not going to watch. I can't I ain't never rely on you to watch. I do watch. When it's at it's real. I don't watch. You to watch because we can still talk about it without you watching. It doesn't matter. What happened to the signal where to watch all season when a matter who like thirty or forty points. I felt like I should watch. Right. As I would have been an epic law would have been epic loss, and that would have meant that would have been move. Yeah. Pointing fingers at everyone. So I felt like I should watch. And then look like they were getting it together. And all of a sudden, they come all the way back and when the game, right? And you kind of when you when you see them play. Well, like that you're like, oh, that's what it could have been. That's what the season could have been. That's what could have been. Yeah. That's actually like when they play well together it looks. It looks pretty not actually coming up next. I want to tell you what I did watch which everyone should watch. Which is fantastic. Okay. Plus, the rockets just did something incredibly smart town. Tell you next. Don't Mason Ireland Momo's here. ESPN LA. Okay. So this is what I watched last night studio fifty four the documentary on Netflix. I did not know that scene was like that was that was an incredible not there. Yeah. I know. I wish I was because I was in middle school. But oh, okay. But that feels like yours nineteen seventy early Mace. I don't know early. Steve Louis Mace was very very low key, really. Yeah. Early mace. Yeah. I was the opposite of troublemaker. But you took me to the piano bar in New York. That is true. I did take to. That was New York. I was out of control fund may oh New York City. I was out of control. Yeah. Like if I were to dip into like one sage your life and be like, oh, we would've liked totally been really good friends outside of New York. So you may see was pretty yeah. Yeah. We're still kind of New York City Mace your older just a little. Yeah. A little older by the way, starting new podcast doing what doing anything I want? I like it me. And you know, sue Kalinski, my comic friend. I do. She's out there doing stand up right now. She and I are doing the show together. We did the show together at W anywhere, you New York. So we're kind of. Yeah. I worry for you do is out there and fun and start to say some things, my friend. I will tell you when the first podcast drop is somewhere in there. Yeah. You will hear me use the word hash. So all I can say okay tag. Hash hash tag. No, no, not that. Okay. Just hash. All right. So anyways studio fifty four documentary strong recommend really really awesome. So Daryl Morey has signed a brand new four year extension with the Houston Rockets today. Risa four years five years, I've your stage. And and here is this is what Howard Beck road. Whatever. Revelations Maury is found for assessing players. They remain proprietary for now. But a team level. He said there are four statistics that are now widely accepted as indicative of team success rate. Affective field goal percentage combination of two and three point shooting percentages, rebounding. Turnover rates how which determine how many more possessions team gets and free throw edge in attempts nuts percentage. It's interesting, but the search is on for something more meaningful than points per game Maury and others in his field are filling hard drives with information, categorize player type shot selection. Substitution patterns the result of every pass in the success rate of the transition three point attempt, which statistically speaking happens to be a good shot. So this is what this is sort of the secret sauce that Maury is working on right now. Now, personally, I don't think he's telling us really anything when he says turnover rate. I mean, we all live turn over as I don't think he's giving anything away. Also, people look different in different systems players like different in different systems. So you get somebody who plays for the Lakers in whatever system, they're running. They're gonna look different than what they're playing. But the pistons right, right? You can't necessarily project. How it's it's a little different than baseball where you pretty much. Look the same wherever you are. Yeah. More. He's got in mind. A a system. Then he finds players to fit, right? And you know, the one thing I would all give Darryl. This is probably Daryl's biggest strength, and maybe potentially his biggest weakness. So he finds players that he thinks fit it and. Finds players that he thinks fit it. But the fist the system that they're running, and it's usually based on some calculation that he's made and he can project out how they could fit. Right. And then when it doesn't work out. He is actually very quick and Justice mellow James Ennis was another guy. They tried in that system, they thought his skillset would translate really well. And then it didn't. So he's in Philadelphia, right? See ya. He's super inventive. I mean ask God hen he doesn't hold onto long. So here's a tweet that Howard Beck. K followed with this is how the best run NBA teams work identify smart people in power them to do their jobs, then reward retain them. It's really rather rather simple yet so many franchises can't figure it out. So I think everybody who roots for a team immediately thought he's talking about my team and as a Lakers fan, I read that. And I thought he's talking about my team. Yeah. I know what you're saying. I have always said that Darrow Maury is a smartest guy in the game. I think he's. Yeah. He comes like high kind of three guys there's Mauri? Prestige in jury. Those are the three guys that I look at is. Right. Anybody missing I truly out of the box by picture thinkers, do you mean analytics, no, I mean know how to put a winning team together? Consistently. Yeah. Insist season by season basis, so just from a purely IQ standpoint 'cause I know a lot of the jams. I don't know every single one. Really, well, but I know a lot of them the guy who is really like just off the charts. IQ is Andy Ellsberg and Miami. He doesn't get credit for what the heat does. What if you looked it's because they've been really mediocre. Though, they had like one year where they missed it. But other than that they've pretty much made the playoffs time just in terms of a straight. I q like, wow. That guy really knows what he's doing understands salary cap like them in a category with three guys. I just said, I would you would I would. And then I also think meal in Portland is really good at constructing a winning team. He just doesn't have the right scenario. Right. Right. Set up right now. Shea was Neal was the sort of was the architect of the lob city clippers she was and drafted guys. Like Damian Lillard drafted CJ McCollum like in terms of player value issues. Pretty well. That drafted Andre door to thirty eight right. So okay. So here. Yeah. Do we have guy? That's not what I've seen them either. It's your you don't we don't have that guy. What I would say those the Lakers have drafted very, well if you look at just the players they've drafted it whoever's doing the player that Ryan west and Jesse bus runs. Scouting department of the scouting, right? Esi bus runs a Scotty. And he deserves a lot of credit credit. A ton of his work has led Josh hard and Kyle who's on the Lakers have had the Lakers have a bunch of scouts though. So I don't wanna name all of them. But like Bill Burke, still working for him. Right. Like, Bill Burke because the guy that you know, I've heard no, I'm serious. I heard the story like literally Jesse bus told me this story. Bill burqa is the guy who was assigned to scout coups and he just yelled at everyone until they drafted him. If this guy isn't a bleeping NBA player, I've never seen. This guy can play draft coups like every single draft meeting. They had Bill Burke was on the couch. Cocoa train. All right. Okay. Ninety years old or whatever he is. At this stage guy new talent when he saw it. Okay. They've pretty I mean, even the guys that they've traded away in pretty good. They drafted spe- will you play at the end of the second round zoo botch looked pretty good for the clippers right now. Both gone Thomas. Bryant Thomas Brian having a great here in Washington. They've drafted really well, leave don't they? It's like we we watched the guys that we rooted for somewhere else plan. Really well Zubay in Bryant you had you you let Bryant go because you wanted to keep zoo bots, and then you traded away Scala, Mike Moscow. You're not gonna keep it Thomas. Bryant thing is a false equivalency to just say you kept sue bunch and set a Thomas Bryant that is sort of true. But the reason why you didn't have enough roster spots because you tried to get Michael Beasley and players like that who didn't work out. So well, and there was genius at work their stand back. There's Jean's work. Let's get let's get Michael Beasley and land. Stevenson, stand back. Well, if you put them all in a train together few. Michael Holley and land Stevenson into a stagecoach. Okay. And then a lot of other people come into the stage coach they can either get closer together or those people can tear them apart Westworld. It is like west. Yeah. I don't wanna hear anymore. You know, what I wanna hear any more? I don't wanna hear anymore. Alchemist alchemist. I don't I don't Hamilton. I don't need anymore. I can't wait CPS manna from heaven manna from heaven. Well, I actually of all of the silly statements that he's made or the fo- intellectualism. He spouted fo intellectualism. He does that too. By the way. Let's be if we're gonna if we're gonna make fun of rod for difference results. Okay. Yeah. That's the difference. The right to us. You get to be an intellect. I mean, if you go and talk to Sampras see, I mean, he's like rub linka in his quoting of good books and plays novels. He is if not more. So if you go to his off Sam press office is filled with stuff like that. It's filled with quotes and sayings. And I mean, I have I win. They're winning. Yeah. All right. Coming up next. I wanna get to Laurie Laughlin, please. I'm I'm obsessed with this story Mace would've ever thought t's would include the star of full house. It's the best story in the world right now macer in Ireland Momo's in for Johnny SPLA. Somebody just tweeted me. Laughlin going from full house to the big house. The meme game is strong. You should see all the memes of this on radio on on on on Twitter. Awesome. It is crazy. So Laurie Laughlin. We're just I don't wanna pick on Lori. But she's committed a crime or allegedly committed a crime. Meanwhile, I will pick on her. Sheer self has been indicted. She allegedly paid five hundred thousand dollars in bribes to get her two daughters admitted to USC. Half a million dollars. Okay. This story gets even better. Oh, yeah. I'm just picking one particular spot is so her one of her daughter's is pretty YouTube famous or Instagram YouTube famous like two million you to channel nineteen. Livia is that her name? I'm not sure I don't I don't follow her. Anyway, if you read about Lori Laughlin daughter, there are videos of her when she starts at USC talking about how this is just something. My parents made me do not really into schools, not even appreciative of it. And then she posted, of course, yesterday a story like another Instagram story or U2. video about how she sorry, and she's grateful for everything, but the comments on her YouTube channel can only imagine Ruutel. I can only imagine. But it basically the way she portrays herself at school is just like something her parents were making her do she's not that into school. If I have to call it. I guess it's just cool to go to the football games in the party. It's she looks exactly like Lori Laughlin. Yeah. They're picture over. Yeah. Should I go be to take a half million dollars to get her in? I mean. William H Macy, Felicity Huffman skate. It was only fifteen grand to get it. You get in the the Hoffman may Macy daughter or son. Was a fifty. It was only fifteen grand. Well, one of them was to take a to get it was it was to improve the SAT's. I didn't realize that the guy Newport Beach this guy, the that he wore a wire to bust all these people. He's the one he's the one he was cooperating witness a cooperating wisdom they had and they had they recorded phone calls with all these people. They've got him coal. They have all these people. But I was wondering who the cooperating witness was I didn't know him. I assume it was but he he's going Joe for while he's going to jail. So he probably did a plea deal. He I what I heard. You know, the at least Jessop, she's really sports. I heard her the other day talking that he was facing a potentially sixty year sentence. Oh, so I'm sure that he wore the wire then. Yes. Shaved go to nine ten years. Dale now, you know, I started to go down the sword yesterday. But you know, I don't like when rich folk rig the system you got really upset about that. I it bothers me. Really? You're already rich. Yeah. You're already rich. Don't change the rules to suit you. It's just not fair to everybody else. I was watching on the by the way you've spectrum, of course. So every time you turn on spectrum. What channels that go to the news channel news channel one is on avoidable? I thought you missed Calvin Washington, though, has a co host. I wish you'd come back. Is he on that? Yeah. Okay. Yeah. I guess he is he is on the. Yeah. No, it annoys me that every time it goes to channel. I know, but they did a story because I turned the TV on. They were doing a story about some kid who just lived his whole life to get into USC, and he talked about friends of his they could. Couldn't get in man. And I immediately thought you know, what that's exactly what's wrong with this whole thing there were deserving kids that should have been able to get in who didn't have a half million dollars to pay the volleyball coach or whatever the hell they were doing. Yeah. I mean, it's just it's it's so unbelievably on and I'm getting go the other way. Oh, come on. How can you go? The way to make Laughlin daughter is more deserving getting into school than some kid who worked his ass off to get a good SEC store. No. He was president the math club. He he was captain the football team. He was he really good grades. He lived his whole life to get into USC. And then Laurie Laughlin daughter who didn't give a damn about a degree or going to college. She got the spot. Instead. Okay. So that's not what I'm saying. Like, that's what you're saying. I know I'm just going to try to. I think maybe I'm more of a like, this is the way the world is. And you'd better get you gotta deal with that. Right. Hold hold that thought Queen of cynicism. All right. The losses of Jacob. Ronnie. Jacob jacob. Jacob. You're in an accident. You're in a you're injured in any way. You you don't want the second best the third best the fifth best the guy who just hung out a shingle as just getting started attorney you want the best best best. Because if you're in an accident, you know, this going to happen all the time. This may be once your whole life, and you want the very best guy, representing you. And this guy knows LA. He's been doing this away for twenty years. He's got a team of fifty people. You're not just signing up for Jacob from. He's got a whole team of people. And here's the thing I was explaining yesterday. So if you are in Woodland Hills or you are in Beaumont or you're down in Costa Mesa. No matter where you are. If you're involved in an accident if you're injured Jacob will actually send somebody from his team. To you. You don't even have to leave the house. He'll send somebody to you to get all the details of the accident and make sure they t you up to get the compensation that you deserve eight four four twenty four Jacobs the phone number. I can't Jacob. Jacob. Jacob eight four four twenty four Jacob. That's eight four four twenty four Jacob or saving or injury. Call Jacob and Ronnie college, call Jacob dot com. Mason Ireland ESPN LA. Hey, kid. You're my salvation I will pay half a million dollars to get you into USC. So Laurie Laughlin said half a million. And by the way, don't even get me started on the US part. Actually, I'm going to start on USC part of this coming up one here. Great headline stories, Felicity Huffman was desperate to get her daughter. Call them there. So there's there's another one that's really bad. He's just not so many people know, but he's a guy up in Silicon Valley who one of the biggest these venture capitalist Silicon Valley and one of the ways he's made his Mark is by like working with the Steve Jobs, like the Lorraine jobs and the right on all the charitable causes giving underprivileged youth, and he's one of the worst offenders. Tons of Wall Street types, money managers. It's just like. Okay. So I think it's a one percenter centers. Right. Yeah. And I think there are people kids from the other ninety nine percent who deserve those spots who didn't have a family with the means to buy their way in its right? And you say other side of that, my my view, and I think this is like super cynical. Is whether it's college whether it's the job market. Whether it's you know, whatever it is. We're talking about this Saddana the other day when you have connections. You have wealthy of power. You have the your station who where you came from absolute influences things K like there's a lot of people who in Hollywood where the just the only have their job because of who their dad or the mom, right? There was or whatever in broadcasting in any field. You're and that's kind of the way the world is. So this is a Grieg's example of that. But it's just another example. And I do think that people who are truly great or destined for greatness. We'll find a way to do it. Despite all the odds, maybe not everyone in the it is certainly harder the barriers to entry are harder. But I I, you know, this this Momo this is look a degree from great university is the one thing that can lift your station permanently. If you if you went to Yale. If you went to Harvard, or if you went to the place, you tried to get into Stanford or few went to even UCLA USC. What do they say about the Trojans? What's that expression? Your Trojan for life, right? No. It's year Bruin for life. You only use a Trojan once. Ruined ruined for college Trojan for life. I hear it's absolutely true. Because. Because. USC guys like mafia they hire their own. Yeah. So if you get into USC, you're in that club, very well. And it doesn't matter where you came from that you can come from a middle class or lower middle-class background. And if you get that USC degree, you're in that club. Yeah. And people like this who are already in an exclusive club like Lori Laughlin daughter with the Jillian new to followers or whatever it is. And she doesn't need the degree. Yeah. She's Laurie law flinch daughter. So yeah, I think it's just the way the world is I don't know we can legislate it. Of course, you can. I legislative ain't something, and they'll the rich people will find another way to but you legislate it with busts like this. Yeah. This is is this is over they will find another work around. Somebody else will come up and find a similar type work around. I just think that like whether there is an opportunity the reason why the scheme worked is. Because the college coaches that they were bribing don't. Make enough money or the I'm sure they make plenty of money for what they do. But let's say you're the water polo coach. I don't know how much water polo coach LA makes probably let's say two hundred per quite a bit, right? But let's let's say let's see off the books. Yeah. Let's say it's two hundred thousand if you give that guy three hundred fifty thousand he's to to help get a kid into just basically rubber stamp or give that like, yeah. There's we we know them as a world renowned water polo or somebody there on our radar. We think they'd be a great walk on teams like that. They each get a few cards. They could play with admissions and more. I was reading about this. I'm gonna take even once further the each coach each program at a school, like Stanford, USC, whatever they get certain. They get certain. Spots. Like, let's say there's like, okay. If you're if you're like the best. Water pull player in the world. Okay. But you have like a pretty good GP. But it wouldn't have got you in taking us there. Spot say, we gotta have this person. Now, you couldn't they couldn't get I ship. It's is it either either scholar depending on this may not be a scholarship scholarship. It may just be I want my cheese. Right. So let's say they have like, okay. Three point. Oh, well, three pointers gonna get you into Stanford. It's not right. Where point get you into Stanford? But if you're the best water pull of the world, and you have a three point O, and you can the the coach can reasonably show that you have a solid academic background that should help get. You you go to be on the team. Right. Your recruiters. Now, it's if you had a two point, oh, they couldn't get you into Stanford. They did it doesn't matter. How good you are. They would not be able to get you in. But they could get you into a UC. How you know? I know these things I this is where I went to school with the two point. Well, I guess you're play football. Yeah. As long as you have an eligibility as long as you have a Sierra, you should be able to get right? So they have a couple of spots every year that they can play. So each I don't know how many of the water polo team will have. But let's say it's too. Okay. Let's say the football team has thirty or whatever spots that they're not going to be evaluated. Just on their academic merits are going to be evaluated on their athletic merits. Okay. The all they need to do is show that they can perform, and there's a you know, what these coaches are doing pretending they will perform even though they know. Never. They've never rode. I've never sailed. So it's easier to get never played water polo on like those types of sports sailing, you know, water pulled because there's not as much scrutiny on that. Right. You you probably couldn't get away with on football, though. They tried with a couple of kickers, right? Yes. Yeah. No, try shopping faces on the kickers and unbelievable like you wouldn't be able to get away with that with Rodney, basically, what you're saying the world's not fair get used to it kind of an and and also. One issue constantly be. Yeah. You said making rules as you said there's just gonna find another soft spot later. It's like people cheat on their taxes. You close one loophole. The finding anyone. Stewart Mandel, I'm cynical. Dang you. You really are Stewart Mandel from the athletic wrote a piece yesterday about USC and put this scandal and keep in mind. Donna hinal think our name is senior associate AD charge of women's athletics. The second most powerful person in the athlete department took more than one point three million dollars in bribes to falsify credentials from more than two dozen students by falsely designating the kids as recruited athletes. So this went deaf ally money, they also fired sixteen time national champion water polo, coach Giovane vob itch sharp. They were real guy. I know I've heard of him. He's. He's that good. Oh, sixteen time national channel. Sure. He's big deal. Right. They were both charged with racketeering. Now. Let's put it in a broader USC landscape. We know that maximum KIA's stepped aside or was fired. I'm not sure how that went down but was removed as president of USC. There is an interim president named one to Austin. These are the scandals that have hit USC in just the last couple years. Ex-basketball basketball assistant, Tony bland caught in his own bribery sting, the one that the FBI's running investigation into college hoops pay for play he pled guilty earlier this year the school reached two hundred and fifteen million dollar settlement with real life victims of thirty year campus, gynecologist accused of sexually abusing women treated bay story in the LA times. Yeah. Now, you've got this the senior associate athletic director in charge of women's sports on the take for one point three million dollars. The the water polo coach also implicated in this. And of course, you've got the former women's soccer coaches to oh the women's longer there. But but they wearing guy should say built on a hinal and the the water polo coach were fired yesterday that was. Like even to fire that water poll. I I've heard of him like he was really big guy. Like, I don't know all the water polo coaches in America, but I know him because these won a lot of question. Far in a far less important way. USC has brought back a very very unpopular clay Helton for his fourth year and fired everybody around him and brought a new people because they want stability in the program. You know, what there is when you add all this. There is so much corruption in the USC athletic department. The the scandal with with sexual abuse. You've got the the women senior associate athletic director on the take. You've got Tony bland, and he was busted in this NCWA scandal. You've got the water polo. You've got all this, and you've got an athletic an interim president and athletic director, who doesn't know what he's doing who. Absolutely. Does not know what he's doing. He's there because his name is Lynn, Sean, and you went to USC. They need a complete overhaul USC needs a complete overhaul because this is now absolutely embarrassing the level of corruption that exists in the USC athletic department. It is it is unprecedented. I long for the days when we were worried about Reggie Bush's dad or mom and step that having a house in San Diego. Those were the days that was an old fashioned, you know, scandal where somebody got a house that was easy. This stuff is just corrupt to the core. Can I go different way again next? You're going to go another different way. Oh, man. I've such cynical such an ivory talent. Really are really am which which surprises me about you. On one hand on the one hand surprises me too. Yeah. It's it's really interesting that you're taking this route all right soup guts, Lakers fifth row Fridays is going on.

Louis vitton slippers right after posting about the Australian Fires a major Laurie Laughlin legal update update and Olivia. Jade Update Harry and Meghan announced that they're stepping back from royal duties and they're going to split their time between England and North America. America and Tom Hanks is in the middle of one of the biggest celebrity feuds of all time. Here's what you missed today. In the world of celebrity celebrity news. Can you believe it Kylie Jenner. The child child billionaire. Who makes her instagram model friends? Dress up like handmaid's from handmaid's tale is a bit out of touch with the real world shocking. Talking Kylie Jenner made a goof on social media yesterday when she followed up her post about the animals that are currently dying in the Australian fires is with a shot of her. MINK LOUIS vitton slippers. People obviously didn't like the hypocrisy of her showing her for right after talking about dead animals In Kylie's defense I genuinely don't think she knows what mink is but apparently she got dragged so hard online for this that that she was forced to scrape together one million dollars to donate to the Australian fires. People Dot Com got the GLO E. PR exclusive on Kylie's donation. People people wrote quote the stars. Generous donation comes after. She faced backlash for posting. A photo wearing Louis Vitton mink first slippers onto social media media just after raising awareness about the rising death toll of animals in southern Australia via her instagram stories and quote page six reported on this saying that the Louis Vitton slippers were worth one thousand four hundred and eighty dollars also in my personal journalistic opinion. I I think the shoes are very ugly and also in my journalistic opinion. I don't think billionaires should exist but anyway clearly Chris Jenner's. Pr Team was working working in overdrive. After this the same anonymous source that was talking to people said quote that post was completely unintentional Kylie stands by I heard desire to want to help provide relief towards the devastation. The fires have caused and quote. I'll just say this The fires are said to be a major symptom. Tim Climate Change the Kardashians love private jets. Everyone knows the sixth Kardashian. Sister is fossil fuels of course. I'm glad that Kylie. He donated money to the fires. I think they all should in. Hey maybe they should stop. Buff Lines Ltd.. Private jets okay. Are you sitting down because they have a major Laurie Laughlin legal legal update for you. That's the triple els okay. The college scandal aunt Becky is gearing up for her trial. L. And leaks are starting to come out about what her and her husband Mossy Modinis case is going to start looking like. TMZ wrote quote. Laurie Laughlin Defense in looming. College at trial hasn't been talked about much in the media but make no mistake about it. She has a defense starting with the fact that the so called incriminating photos of her daughter's on a rowing machine never made their way to USC and quote. Whoa okay so those pictures that? OJ and Bella posed for never got sent to USC. Where did they go? And why haven't seen them. This is very interesting to me. This this is new information in its it's fascinating. TMZ continued writing quote sources connected to USC tell TMZ. The photos were never submitted as part of of the girls at mission package as we reported the mastermind of the scandal. Rick Singer told Laurie and Mossy mode to get the pictures taken so it would appear. They had experience experience on a crew team and quote. Okay so maybe the pictures were taken for like a private social media account or something. I don't know either way. All we know is that they were not an unofficial part of their college applications very interesting. Maybe that's why they haven't leaked yet. 'cause you would think someone would have posted those online By now if they were in fact floating around out there also. TMZ UPDATED US about That story that came out a couple of weeks ago that Lori allegedly hired a prison expert to coach her as she prepares to go behind bars while according to TMZ. That's not true which which. I am really bummed about because I thought it was really funny. I guess lorries not doing like a a hard after all. Oh well wow laurie. Laughlin is busy fighting desperately spratly for her not guilty verdict her daughter. OJ Aka Olivia. Jade literally admitted that she's guilty of doing doing crimes okay. Well kind of let's rewind two days ago. OJ posted kind of like a hot black and white picture of herself on Instagram Ram. I thought this was fairly normal and it didn't even really Pique my interest at the time but as I was going through the Laurie Laughlin News today I took a dip back into. OJ's instagram account and noticed something quite interesting in the comments section of the Instagram Post. Olivia Jade's sister.

I mean literally you should have seen me. I stopped everything. I like through my laptop on the ground. I was like we got to put this in today's show. The people need to know that Harry a Meghan are leaving in England. That's right. Harry and Meghan are officially stepping back from the royal duties and they're gonNA start splitting their time between England Gland and North America which a lot of people are guessing means Canada. Because they did you spend six weeks on Vancouver island over Christmas and also weirdly weirdly while we're on that topic David foster the music producer like set them up with the House that they stayed in. Because he's like the King of Canada or something and he way hey in age joint. INSTAGRAM statement on the verified account at Sussex Royal Hairy Megan wrote quote we have chosen to make transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as senior members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support her. Majesty the Queen and quote okay. I liked it. They're going to be financially independent. I mean the the biggest problem with the royals is obviously the tax payers pay for their lives which is like. It's cool that they're going to say no to that like they're gonNA make their own money game which like Duh like. Why don't they all do that anyway? They also wrote in the very long instagram post quote. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America continuing to honor our duty to the Queen and quote so yeah they just said North America. They didn't specifically say Canada. Which means I hope they they might also come to la which were making his from? I think it'd be so cool to like run into Megan markle in La like at the studio city farmers market. I'd be like hey girl. Do you miss this weather while you were over across the pond. Isn't this weather so much better than England. My God it's actually. You may dream to like talk to Megan markle about whether while like feeling for a good tomato you know. Isn't that like a good. That's a good. That's a good goal for me to have in life. Also I'm just GONNA put this out there when they say they're going to you know be financially independent. I desperately hope that means Megan's GonNa go back into acting like maybe she'll be on suits again. That's a pretty good paycheck. Okay thank God. Today is kind of a slow celebrity.

The Yoga-fication of Getting High and The Rock's Black Canadian Dad

"Always. Welcome to save space a podcast of creating a safe space for bad takes this week. As with every week, we are joined by a couple of friends who help us make sense of the world today. We're gonna talk all about the world of marijuana since legalization, and what it takes to get your kids into a fancy school, especially your dumbest kids now there's a ton to get through this week. So let's just bring in our guests. Mugniyah Krishnan is a reporter for vice Canada and Morgan Campbell. Who you might remember from a couple episodes. We've had is a sports reporter for the Toronto Star Morgan emmission. Thank you for joining us on C space. I'm always happy for an invite to Cosimo Jamaa. I feel like weed is what it takes to get into a league school. It's at least what it takes to get through at elite school. It has been five months since pot became legal. And now, we are all high all the time, right? You are. But I'm not the past. The legalisation has been an interesting one on the way more than a few people were left behind, you know, people who maybe wanna sell edibles or some pot retailers, and especially people with cannabis convictions just to name a handful, and when it comes to the money of it the country isn't suddenly awash in pot funded tax projects. So what's the deal with marijuana mini? Shia you've been covering pot legalization, and it's roll out nationally has it been successful. It definitely depends where you're talking about there's huge differences across the country in Ontario and B C. I would say so far it's basically been a failure. So both of those provinces have the largest illicit markets. BC's basically, the unofficial capital of weed, and they only have a handful of legal stores open right now and on -tario has none. And we kind of have this really Janke lottery system that is supposed to start with with. Stores opening on April first. So I would say in both of those provinces the online sales also have not been great in those provinces. I would say there's probably still very successful black market operating. There. Alberta has come out ahead for sure I'll Berta it's kind of surprising away. Because I I've lived in Berta for total of eight months. It was like four months stints different times. Honestly, the first time I lived there. I could not find any weed and my boyfriend at the time came to visit me, and he was huge stone her and he was like desperately trying to find we'd in Edmond in and he couldn't find any. And he was he was like are strong introvert. But like one day went to work, and I came back home. And he was like I spent the day like going around and basically asking people for weed and couldn't find any cannabis at that time. Yeah. So culturally both both since that. I lived there. I on. Weed was not a big thing there at all. But it is sort of it has that libertarian streak to it. It's very free market like Albert has a lot of it's all private for liquor. And I think they've taken that exact same approach to cannabis. So they have the most stores right now, they've got seventy five stores they're making the most money by far in terms of legal sales. So it's kind of merged as like the leader in Canada in terms of the actual legal market, which I think is kind of interesting kind of surprising. I did find the surprising. I was in was driving towards bam earlier this year, and there's a giant billboard for a bunch of pot retailers on the way into Banff. And I was like, you know, what this is the natural fit. These two things like giant mountains and getting stoned, but seemingly British Columbia. Also has giant mountains struggling with that? In fact, British Columbia, the only province disclosed how much money it's gotten from the federal government in terms of tax income, which was one point three million dollars between. October and December and they were expecting fifty million dollars in a single year. Our other provinces like on -tario still having that's where the gap between how you know people are operating versus how the actual business if it is working. Yeah. So on the tax side of it is kind of interesting because I think part of the issue is that in Canada on like in the states. You can't like the municipalities don't really gain anything from in in the sense of tax revenue like a sales tax revenue. So for example, like Denver rakes in millions of dollars a year in just a weed tax that they have for wreck pot. But we don't have that same thing here. So I feel like on -tario the government here has kind of allowed cities and municipalities to opt out, and I think that a bunch of them are probably saying wall, there's not necessarily like the strong financial incentive to opt in, but we're still going to have to pay for policing and all these. Other things like public education. Then I think that I think there's Palley who are kind of wary of it and probably waiting to see. Okay. Let's give it a year. Let's see how it's playing out and other places are kids getting high in the streets like, you know, that kind of thing. So I think that's kind of holding holding sort of the the progress back to a certain degree with BC. It is strange. I think part of what happened was there was just a shift in the provincial government at exactly the wrong time kind of the same thing happened in Ontario too. And so I think that kind of stalled the progress, and they ended up being a lot further behind then they should've been speaking of being behind one of the major criticisms of the pot legalization was that people with convictions weren't going to be provided amnesty or pardons, and thus wouldn't be able to participate in the legal marijuana enterprise. What's these status on that? Because I know the Senate has been considering the pot amnesty. Bill. There's an estimated five hundred thousand Canadians who have pot possession convictions. And that can be for something as minor as passing joint. And so this Bill essentially will suspend their criminal records, and that is not the same as completely wiping erasing the record. So that like that conviction? We'll still show up what they're doing is. They are waving the six hundred thirty dollar fee, and usually you would have to wait five years after you served your time to be able to apply for a pardon, and they're waving that sort of waiting period as well. But the issue is that if it's not completely wiped from the record, it's just sort of being forgiven. If you will it's still available. It could still potentially pop up and give you issues if you're trying to travel if you're trying to find employment if you're trying to volunteer, you know, a bunch of different issues can Papa and some people are saying, well, this is a crime that. Oh, it's doesn't exist anymore. So these record should be completely expunged. They should be completely erased. But the government doesn't seem to be open to that right now. So what's next and for pot amnesty? And even that idea is not just not is that just done with this particular government, or you know, is not something that people pot convictions are gonna have to sit with. I think they issue is it honestly comes down to stigma a lot of it. So the word trafficking really scares the shit out of people they immediately think of the Hells Angels. But the truth is a lot of these people who got caught up in dispensary rates and a lot of them were young people of color like people in their twenties. College students just working at dispensary jobs, partially some of them didn't even realize that that was illegal because of sort of all the confusion going around those people were largely charged with possession for the purpose of trafficking. So if you're just like the guy working the coffee shop storefront making law tastes, you likely still. This trafficking charge. Yes. Absolutely. And of course, like a lot of these dispensaries that were sort of up and running the owners were nowhere to be found. It would just be these young people who are sort of like the baristas the bud tenders who'd be getting these charges. So the government right now is not willing to go anywhere near anything with the word trafficking in it. They are still likening it all to Hells Angels and organized crime. They sort of loved to fall back on that organized crime line because it scares people, and it kind of justifies their actions. But I think yeah, the what the advocates are calling for is expunged men so completely erase the records for people convicted of possession. But also taken a step further. Start looking at some of these low level trafficking charges and start looking at wiping those. Well, now, the stigma is one thing that they'll have to sit with the culture has changed. So so much. It's awful. You have probably what people think it's like the coolest job in Canadian media. You get your report on pot. It's just you know, what it's like, you know, how yoga. Hands in her face, and she rubbing her eyes cupping her cheeks he's not making it sound like job is very much thinking about my job is pretty fun. But like think about what happened to yoga, right? You know, yoga originally like it's an Indian thing. Now, it's like Lululemon, there's this whole culture belch rounded. It's basically like all Vancouver. That's like that's like this like, yoga culture, they've sort of appropriated it, and you know, it's just I don't know for lack of a better word. It's just a little bit kind of Dushi and like yuppie and like that exact same thing as happening with weed right now. And so you're seeing okay. For example. I just wrote a story yesterday about a chain of dispensaries that's going to be opening and it's called a Hobo cannabis Hobo recreational cannabis is the chain. It's not even a word we use twenty nine right? So so, okay. This company who's opening the the strain? It's it's a nightlife group. They're called the Donald group, and they run a bunch of like clubs and bars and Maine couvert and a couple in Toronto as well. But anyway, I asked them I'm like, you know, where are you concerned about the association of the word Hobo with homeless people, and they said, well our team personally identified more with the wanderlust journey aspect of the word Hobo over over a vagrant or a homeless person. It was like you can't just you can't choose what you associate Hobo. It's still there's still like meaning to that word. It's like the fashion line from Zealanders Darah leaked. Guess not interesting. Yeah. That's not appropriate at no, I don't think it's appropriate. I I would love to have been in the boardroom meeting where no one was like ios might be a problem. Could also have called it Wunderlist. Yes. Yes. Or journey journey. All kinds of names traveler, yeah. And also like for the record the hobos like in the depression, era, whatever they weren't. They didn't just have wanderlust like they didn't how. You were not just like a riding. Like, they were taking a gap year for work. Anyway, I feel like that's microcosm for a little bit of what's happening with the cannabis industry. And you know, I guess the shame of it is is largely run by white people a lot of them corporate people, or who whose background is in law enforcement or politics who are now really gaining a lot from it. While you know on the flip side a lot of people of color are screwed over because they were convicted for like selling dime bags when they're nineteen. Joan. Federal prosecutors in the United States announced charges this week against fifty people across six states in the largest college cheating case ever. The accused include some Hollywood stars like desperate housewives star publicity Hoffman and full houses. Laurie Laughlin as well as America's one percent. And quite a few of them, including the head of a law firm. It's worth noting. They are alleged to have bribed testing and university athletics officials to ensure that their kids get spots at prestigious universities in the states. Now, this isn't really a problem we have in Canada. And I'm sure we can get into how we do have some of these problems. But Morgan this seems very opaque to me. Can you help us understand? How do you want me to start? Okay. Well, let's start with the bribing university. Sports officials. What is this? What is the environment in which this is all taking place? So in in this. Well, there are two ways. So there's there's one. You would pay this consultant in the consultant has this has this charity. So when you pay the guy, that's tax deductible. And because he's a charity. He's a nonprofit he's not paying taxes either in just brands, right? So then. Yeah. So the rest of us like if you're in the US our families in the US their regular people. They don't they don't have this kind of money, so they pay more taxes because these guys are paying less. Well, so there's that guy you pay that guy, and he can get someone to take the SAT for your kid. Get get a better score. They can they can get your kid. Even if your kid has no learning disability. They can get your kid labeled with learning disabilities. So you have six hours to take the test. Instead that force stuff like this ways to to to to boost your test score to get you in the other way is. In his. So they were running is that these guys know that a lot of these sports teams varsity sports teams have certain numbers of people that they can basically get past admissions. Right. And this happens whether or not the person's on scholarship, so you give out your safety of the basketball team about your thirteenth. Gosh is but say you have two more spots on the team for people that you call walk on people that get into the school. They're like civilian students, but they play on the team. So the coach can say, Well, I I have two spots for them. So what they're doing? Creating these fake personas for these kids to make it look like they are athletes to get them as lower emission standard. And then get them in as a rower get them in as a basketball player. Get them in as a soccer player. Even though mostly kids. Don't play any sports cities are students who high school students trying to get into university, and their parents are organizing scheme where they're like my daughter is a rower. Yes. Haggar as a rower. Yes. And that way her SAT score matters less for grades matter less. Yes. Technically because our admissions office and athletics compliance and the the head crew coach says, hey, I got ten people. I gotta get in here. They are. So in in these cases, if this guy had ten ten rowers gotta get in. He actually had eight rowers in maybe two of them were people part of this ski has watch judge Tyco now at this. These guys from Brampton and their whole lost me at YouTube guys from Brampton, but can their whole thing is and they built a big franchise out of just doing these skits where these people talk like hardcore black Toronto English where the the one do the leader of of of the quick he's the judge judge Judy. And so these different people T dot black dudes Brown's whatever they come into this courtroom with these disputes like you would have to hear like in high school, right? Like, oh, this girl was me money or her money. She's trying to get my money, but you only braided half my here for my grad photo stuff like this. But the latest one is. They get into this big argument over whether this is a scheme or a scam. Oh, and even at work, just hustle. Scamming a woman moaning back first of all your loomed out, and it's not a skept scams. Does bless how how's it? Well, it's not like a scam. It's more like a scheme scheme is a scum, bro. Scheme is a scheme. What do you say? It's not a scheme or a scam is a businessman. Okay. So what's going right now? In a sense. I understand how these are meaningful. Exactly. So here's the scheme at the wrong. People running here's the rowing. So the what we had here was one of the actresses, daughters like Instagram influence her. So that's Laurie Laughlin daughter. There we go. Yes. So she had all these Instagram followers and her Instagram feed is full of her talking about how she doesn't like school, right? Exactly, but she gets into USC. But one of the things he's able to do because she gets into USC and now her Instagram life is about her being USA is she's able to get more of these partnerships as an influence, and so think about the fact that this person here who does not have any merit. Any skill can monetize her presence in her social media following at USC, but like young Marta rose. And when he was there. He couldn't do it. Right. A basketball player cannot do you forbidden? You cannot make money off of your presence off your skill while you're at the school, but this kid who does not have merit found her way in and so she gets in her mom, so basically she gets in as the coxswain from the crew team. So that's the person at the front of the boat that says stroke, stroke stroke in like sets, the tempo for the team looks at the teams. Like Demi when Starks. Like, he's each child on the enzyme grownup. So the point is that was a pretty ingenious scam. Because if you look at her, you know, she is not a rower takes two seconds of figure out. She's not rowing anything because you small, and she's wispy if you guys have been around like good rowers, they are tall strong long lever people and she was tiny. So they get Lincoln losses. That's exactly what I said. Exactly. So this is the scheme the scam. They were able to run to get her in. But it's delicious when you see all these things blow up in people's faces. The thing is it's not a small amount of money to the charge sheet. It's you know, twenty five million dollars over almost over a decade yet. And so does do these did he schools or university administrations look around and say like where did this money come from? Or did it go straight to the pockets of the officials? Yeah. Yeah. I think that's what the the indictment is laying out is that the people that were in on it. There's all these people that are complicit near the ones that are doing. And at think, they're setting up the fact that like, the the the broader admissions office is oblivious all this because the athletes department they're doing their thing or this person has gotten in with with the help of a bunch of fraudulent SAT scores that like look legitimate. To the admissions office. The other fascinating aspect of this to me is the fact that like it's one thing to get guys because one of the scams or schemes they were using was the varsity sailing team at at at Stanford. And the thing is like you can you can take any ten do you don't know if these guys are on the sailing team or not what is the sailor look. Right. But when you get to the point where you're like trying to pass off his basketball players you've got five five white guy as a basketball players. It's not to say he can't play basketball. We just haven't seen many five five white guys playing basketball at USC, which is a big time basketball. We have not seen that since probably the nineteen forties. So like if they bring this to me and say, he's a this five five guys a basketball player at the very least. I'm going to Google that man that's gonna depend on these pieces of paper one of the things they were doing they were like taking pictures of real athletes in Photoshop ING their kids faces onto the bodies insane. These people and. Surprising that didn't get found out suitor. But like again, you can pass off the five foot five girl as the coxswain the five foot two girls, the coxswain the in the influencers coxswain, but like the five five white guys a basketball player. He might be. I'm just going to have more questions. It's fine to me that none of none of the kids seemed to know or be aware that their parents were. Operating, but isn't that how privilege works writing gap came out and finding out and in this way, just be so fucking humiliating to know, the your parents had so little faith in you. And think that you're like such a piece of shit they had to pay like a million dollars or whatever point in. Let's say first year university when everyone's talking about how hard it was to get in. And you're like, yeah. The SAT's man that was like a long six hours, and everyone looks at you. You just don't remember writing that test? What else okay? And finally time for takeaway. This is the part of the show where we share our boldest bad opinions are ran endorsements or whatever else we need to get off our chest Morgan. Why don't you get started? We're call today. We're gonna call today. Dwayne Johnson's black half is Canadian day. These guys secret life of candidate tweeted, did you know that wrestler? Rocky Johnson was from Amherst Nova Scotia, which I don't understand like in a country that that sees professional. Wrestling is a real sport. Like a lot of Canadians think it's a real sport. Don't tell him it's fix because they don't want to hear it. But all these Canadians don't know rocky Johnson. Canadian. So well, I didn't know that Canadian really. Absolutely the rock does love in couvert. Well, exactly. And so he just feels Kinney. It's just fascinating to see for me to see this play out on social media. Because like when you spend a lot of time on Twitter African American like, I am one of the things that happens a lot is that. Put it to you like this being Canadian of any colour like this mainstream Canadian being African American. They're very similar in in in a few cents. One is that we're both like minority groups vis-a-vis like brought a US culture. But also, they're all these always these revelations that keep coming around about like who is and who isn't part of the team. Right. So like on black Twitter. This happens at least twice a year. Somebody figures out somebody pretty prominent figures out that Bobby Caldwell is white. So Bobby call those guy saying what you won't do for love any saying open, your eyes, you know, black Americans of a certain age like a little bit younger than my parents. But older than me love Bobby Caldwell people don't realize the white guy. And so what happens is once or twice a year. Someone will start tweeting the Bobby Caldwell as why did you want to call the app, I'm calling Bob Coppell's, bud white, and it goes and it'll keep going around Twitter. For about eighteen hours. Then it Peters out. And then six months later, the next prominent personal figure out. So the same thing happens with Dwayne Johnson. Iraqi Johnson I have all these Canadians in my Twitter mentions surprised floor, the rock is half. Canadian guys. The rockets have Canadian in think about the fact that your next black president might be a half Samoan half. Scotian card-carrying Republican former pro wrestler, I feel like the more alarming things that he's Republican. Wow. All right Manisha. What do you have for us? Okay. This is I feel like this is a little bit controversial. I remember years ago getting irritated at Oprah's interviewing style, and and I have to say that I watched her special with the to Michael Jackson accusers, and I just thought she had such a bad job. And I just feel like I have to get that off my chest. The king. So okay. So my thing was Oprah has always been that. She obviously has a lot of sort of theories on things, and she posits things. And I feel like when she interviews somebody. She asks fairly leading questions are very loaded. So it'll be like well did this make you feel like this this this this and this and she'll talk for like, you know, a full like forty five seconds. Like loading it with what she thinks what she interprets happened. And then the person will just sort of Bill like, yeah. And I like Tom Cruise. I mean, you're so in love you could feel like jumping on the couch and then oh. Oh. But I it had been so long since I had seen Oprah interview somebody so it's like been years. So I was sort of looking forward to it to be honest. I really wanted to hear more from these two alleged victims. And I just thought I just felt like the whole time. She was spending so much time hitting her own talking points. And I understand that you know, she, obviously, she's a victim herself of child sexual abuse at she obviously has a lot to say on the topic. But I feel like she really didn't give enough air time to these two victims to actually share their stories, and she was sort of cutting them off and interjecting with her own theories on things or like cutting away from them when they were saying something that I thought was really important. And so, you know, I think that obviously Oprah is very wise. And I'm not quite putting that into question at all. But I would show that interview in journalism. Class as like a master lesson in how to not interview of victim sexual abuse. Wow. Well, that may be the last week here for manasian. Watched that interview and watch it with like a journalism like critical lens. And then I would love to hear what you guys think of it on us Oprah. You see all kinds of interviews on TV that make like what journalists would call technical mistakes. And how they interview then Oprah's like it's like record sales. Like, you you you you could tell me that shock a of better singer than Fergie who got the record sales, right? Yeah. For like go to sleep a night on top of pile platinum records that who the fuck cares. It's not gonna hurt the end of the day. Right. So Oprah is Oprah's like the original influencer. All the language that like the influencers on Instagram use that was Oprah twenty years ago. Whether the Oprah show become was just became everyday people just show her products and to fall in love with one bring on the show. Oh my God. I am obsessed. Like, it's like grammar say, I'm obsessed with this juicer shows about the juice all of a sudden people by that user, I'm obsessed with this book. And there it goes but open like in the social media era that to me that's her legacy. Is that like she more? So than just like a celebrity endorsing like she really was like a forerunner of this influencing industry were just as person you admire every few days is new products. And they tell you that they can't live without this product. And then you go out and buy the product that buck the gift or whatever the mass the secrets, whatever the fuck something. Cancel. What we maybe can get online as she's obsessed with this show. Oh, man. Well, my takeaway for the week has to do with a video. Circulated of Utah Senator and former presidential candidate Mitt Romney blowing out the candles on a birthday cake. But mitts approach was unique in that in blowing out the candles. The birthday cake he removed each individual candle all the for cake sociopath. Wrong ones that complies. Oh. Removing individual when you're four. Mitt Romney seventy two years. I don't think they were seventy. On that case for hours later. He's lost one. So my take is that. Mitt Romney is right in that. It has been a long time since we've seen an innovation in the birthday cake world. And this is new this is introduced a whole new thing. First of all as one who loves attention. He figured out a way to drag attention like you just blow the candles on the birthday cake people move on with their day, very quickly. But if you blow out one birthday cake candle at a time everyone's looking at you that whole time true. He is hold. It a stage presence like I've never seen. He's like selene Dion stage brother with this birthday cake situation. I think Mitt Romney is actually right. I mean, he's right. If you're a narcissist. That's that's how a narcissist burns out or blows out a birthday on your birthday. You get to be a narcissist is true. I like there's other ways to innovate though, you know, like do do sausage rolls instead of cake, take it to a savory level. But if you are the birthday, easy, how do you innovate on that moment? Just tell everybody your Kito. My sister's a pastry, chef she made me a birthday cake out of donuts one time and every time she made me a birthday cake cookies. Airways the enemy. I mean, your sisters amazing. All right. Well, that's it for the show this week. Thank you.

Oh, baby. Did again, I'll do back, but the. You did it so good. Yeah. You actually now. He's all jealous eastern got it. So he's going to replay that. The opening tune. I'm more of like. Oh, you look my hair just bought it or. Not like that. Thank you. It's all right. I like my hair she thinks just bought it a one, you don't know guy me. Like, I remember that one. Okay. Things at one. And the things that are are are you guys didn't have the platelets going this. No, he just likes that one time. He's been like jamming too. So Mike sensing Ariana Guerande I've been walking around just like super hyper this morning, so happy Monday, leaders and gentlemen this. This is super exciting. Hey, but I really want to get into something. Because it's been on the news. It's been a topic of conversation. And I really wanted to bait it with all of you guys that was going to be my question to really. Yeah. Okay. So Honey, I know you've been dead to the world for the past couple of weeks because he had that awful told. Still. Lemon. They're still getting over it. Thanks very much. I can tell I can hear it. So basically. Did you hear any of the news going on about Felicity Huffman in the law? Fly. Who Felicity Huffman? Laurie Laughlin were arrested. Louis, but the Queen of hallmark and anti so Laurie Laughlin got arrested record for a and Felicity Huffman. Basically the FBI raided their house and arrested her moving not really. But there was like a huge investigation because of the college teams seems holiday scams scheme. Shame. David. I got really until case. So why don't you give the background since you have all the the may story short? There was a man who was running like an underground scheme where shame. She really. The rich people. Where really really like not even like rich. But like major company exacts and CEO's, and like, obviously these actresses people with a lot of money were paying him. So that he could ensure that their children got into Yale Harvard USC, northwestern, George all these major universities folk scholarships yet on actually office. Yeah. And and and also like, Felicity Huffman paid I think it was fifty thousand for a better. So he had someone in like into the commute into the college. He had like ten people around the country who would go take the test for your kids. But like I mean, some of these people were paying half a million dollars some- somebody paid a million. I know it's like dollar, really. I mean, I was watching this thing and they're like holy blue collar crime. And I'm like, yeah. But like that's a lot of money. Okay. So I'm onto is that what you're at because I'm like, I don't have kids. So I know there's used to be like, oh, but you would do anything for your kids. And so that's. Like, what's the extent? I have two very different sides to this. And everyone's like, oh, those rich spoiled kids. Yeah. Well, here's the deal. If you had the money to do it. Now, I I don't know which side I'm on two very different sides because I can see two different sides. The one side is well people pay for private school yachts giving your child's a life of you know, maybe better learning better quality of school better classrooms. So you're paying IVA girlfriend. That's paying over thirty thousand dollars a year in just privates Yale and for us, and like, well, I don't I I can't afford four thirty thousand dollars a year for private school in the public school. I it's it's fine. So, you know, you know, we're sending Julie to you know, obviously, the the public school in Nashville is amazing. So you know, we're we're good there. But I mean, what's the is there really a difference because people are paying for private school? I get and this is where I get were Jolie. Would if here's the thing. I was. Terrible test taker. Yeah, I didn't even take I only took. Took eighth ACT's in. I mean 'cause I knew I wasn't going to college. But I I did awful because I was a bad test taker if my daughter was a bad test taker, but she had the qualifications. Yes. If you needed the score to be in the school. I would do anything for her. Yeah. And I don't know, I guess that might make me a bad parent. But she has to sustain how she is now in that school, then so that's on her that if I get if I can get help her get her in then it just like someone's gonna help someone to get into a a family. They know somebody the difference between this is though from what I read five hundred pages. I didn't read all five hundred. But like, none of it was a lot of like, okay. We need to ensure that my son doesn't find out. There was a situation where she was like the guy one of the dod's emails, the main guy, and he was like my son was just an orientation and they asked him how he feels about doing track. And how excited he isn't. He literally was like I'm not in track. Like, what are you talking about? And so I think so then the. Dodwell and Laurie Laurie to was said that her daughter was in the rowing rowing crew, which I don't really necessarily agree with that side of those is the thing. These people have so much money. It's like get a tutor get this get that they can all afford it. But I don't blame the kids. 'cause I don't know if these kids were dying to go to that school as much as their parents were. I mean, these families were like, you know, what I mean? It's like the parents really wanted them in two hundred percent more for the parents like my son or daughter goes to exactly exactly like one though. 'cause I I disagree if but if Joel for me, personally, I think if I don't care I told you I don't care if Jolie goes or not and we've had major disagreements about that she's going to college. Yeah. But if she chooses not to I can't get upset with her because that's their life that are way more understanding than these like high exact families were like, oh, no you're going to Yale. Money to that half a million dollars a million dollars to spend to get their child into that school. It's so the parent it is a lot of it has to do with their ego because they are high end exacts that had that education or didn't have it and want to say that their kids have it. But also, I'm not saying it's purely selfish based on the parents. It is also like you said Honey to get them in the door. Like, we do anything to get. Julia jas their foot in the door. It's up to them to be able to maintain the great stay at a Harvard or stay Columbia or these schools at trying to get into. What bothers me about that is the the kids that really work high now, and that's a mayor. And that's where it that's where that's the other side one or quotes. It was like I forget, which parents said it, but it's not funny. But. But you're laughing. But I'm no because she goes, okay. Well, we just need to ensure that they get in here we need to ensure that she gets into the school and not just ASU. I went to as you know, obviously, the old these parents. That's what I mean is the parents were like, oh, no, no, no. You're not going here. Your you know, what I mean? It's like what does it matter where the kid goes to school, the kids gonna part, you know, I I don't know. Ryan Seacrest was talking about it. You know to bring up I heart radio plug plug, but Ryan and Kelly were talking about it, and I agreed with Kelly when she said, no, I want my children to work for it. And that's the thing. That's that's on the one side of the spectrum where I want Jolyon James to work for everything. And I don't want to just be like oh here. Here's some money paid off. But having said that if my child has for example, Joey has a speech delay. She's been you know, we've been working without with her. If I had an opportunity to pay to get her to a better place. I would do. But that's the argument is that, you know. I know a lot of kids to who had learning disabilities. So they had to go to a doctor. They had to get a note that they allow special time for their test. So that's the argument is like, well that's not fair. My child has a severe testing disability. But you're gonna pay fifty grand. So that he can do. So Kelly was saying with the Kelly and Ryan show was she was saying that that test is exhausting tiles. Yeah. I mean where it's just like that child with a disability. It takes so much out of them that they are physically exhausted. So sometimes it would be easier. Just to be like, here's the fifty K to two. But is that do you? Do you? Teach your children that that's hard. That's that's that's where I'm like anything. But I want her to break the law for your child. Yes. Okay. Then I 'cause I think that's the basic question. We're gonna depend if someone hurt my child. I'd good probably to jail. Okay. But and that's what the argument is like these people didn't. It was like a selfish crime because most of these kids don't even know their parents, did it different. The difference too. Is is different investing money in pain to get additional help or expert expert help for your children. Yeah. That's one thing. That's fine. But what they're doing is basically saying bind them in a. Yeah. We're buying them attest grade or buying them. Admission into a school, which I don't think is right now one can say that because of a high end exact because where they went to school in the alumni following stuff. Like that that maybe they know the person on the admissions board, and they got in because of who, you know, well, that's just life in general. That's one thing pain to get into the front of the law. And I think it was the paying versus like the the intricate lying. It was like let's Photoshop our child to this to make them look in the in. They're going under the false pretense of being a student athlete, which is taken away from opportunities for a student. Athlete. I agree with that is trying to get an I wouldn't have gotten into jam you. If it wasn't for football, of course. And I got a great education because of it. So there's a lot of kids that are athletes in high school that kind of Bank on their their athletes ISM to get them into a school that probably wouldn't get into otherwise. So that's taken away, which is even harder for a student athlete to go to an Ivy league school and stuff like that. Because at the time commitment in everything that you know, that they have with sports along with the academic side. So to take that away from us do Nathlie who has to live like that. That's even I think the consensus is that people are just really feeling for like, well, what about all the other kids? I feel for the actual kids because. Yeah. Well, I mean do you though because law firms daughter was like. On a yacht. Data on got arrested if they don't know I feel bad for them. Because like I was very fortunate growing up, but like I never felt pressure. My whole family went to university of Texas. I'm not getting in there. There was a zero percent chance. I think I took the SAT hung over. There was zero percent chance that I was getting in there. And I, but there was never any pressure from my you know, what I mean. So I feel for these kids being like there was obviously pressured there was obviously something toward these parents. I don't know days. There was pressure than than that's not. That's not cool. I, and I I just want to go on because I'm sure I'll get a real arted for this. But for me personally. No, I wouldn't give. I wouldn't give you no money to do that kind of shame. But if I if I had the opportunity to pay to help my child to get a better place. I would now go to those extents. I don't believe that. I would do that. I could because the kid that worked so hard and rolling that that lost us bio to, you know, the kids academic Abby academically works hard, but I will do whatever I can to make sure she has the best opportunity. If for some reason, she is still delayed and has those issues just knowing that she can be in those schools in thrive in those worse. And these these parents gave half a million dollars. Now. I don't know. But it's like some of their bales were so expect like I just read this morning. There bales were so expensive. So it's like you really just ended up double effing yourself because you gave all this money. And now you're getting caught. And now you might do jail time. You might not that's the thing. I mean is jail time. What do you think about that? I mean, do you think that's something that they should go to jail for? I don't know if they I don't I don't know if anyone will really serve us feel time. It would be more about fines community service probationary stuff. Like that. I don't know. If it all depends on some of them are way more intense because some of them it went into taxes because they gave so much money to a fake well and time out that's the good right there. What about the person that says because I'm sure there is a ton of people that say, you know, the have the money I want my child to go to the school because they want to go to the school. They don't have the grades. But I will pay about this much to help with the your car of boosters start that happens. What is the difference? Why aren't those people because because the same people though, getting their child on an opportunity, it's not guaranteed. So you could give like a million dollars donate a building. But it's not guarantee guaranteed that your child gets in no directly. There's no way to to paper legally attach you giving that money to your. Child getting we have a friend could be very coincidental. But the chances are not high. This was guaranteed. You're giving fifty thousand year giving hut. The chances he said are high if they if they boost no the chance you have to give like seven million in order to officially get them in. We have a we know someone who gave a lot of money to a school and the children did not get in. And so they are now doing two years somewhere else, and then they will transport transfer. So this was just a guaranteed every person. I think this guy said he did it nine hundred times he got every kid in cruiser he made twenty four million or something this underground guy. So he is locked up. One thing. I would say he needs to know for sure. So he became an informant for the FBI like three. Oh, yeah. So heat. That's how they have all this. The guidance is like juicy this is gonna be a movie like these Email chains are like in Saint so wait. So they basically caught him and then said instead of having jail time he's going to end up having it. But obviously it was like reduced, you know, we're like if you call with us because he he's been doing this for for. I mean, we're gonna find out so many more people the fifty are the ones since since he started working with FBI that he's been doing it. He said nine hundred students are will say I can see where I mean, you know, you guys can attest to this. Like when you go to a school, you really do bleed those colors, right? Like, you are tach to it. Right. So. During. So. Right. So much of you get caught up in that atmosphere in one follow your school. So I had a small taste of it just with my brother with him deciding where to go to college in my alma mater, James Madison was kinda in the running for a little bit. And when dad went there you went down there. I went there. I just I, you know, my brother grew up going to the games watching me play, and I'll I will always bleed purple, and it's just one of those things, right? So, but even just my brother kind of going through that situation in him. Ultimately, not choosing Jayme you because he had a better opportunity. Elsewhere is still kinda sat Sarah with me. Like, I'm still kind of like like, I'm really really won't go to Jayme you, you know, kind of like through my jellies, Jamie. Right. So what have to I have to kind of bite my tongue and realize what he wants what's best for him and put those feelings aside. So I can't even imagine with my own child being like, I want, you know, Jolie actually does want to go because I don't believe that those nine. Nine hundred many students not there was over like nine hundred. I think he said I don't believe that those all of them didn't want to go to college. I'm sure they're like, please help me, you know, 'cause I wanna go to this college. I really wanna get. Probably they probably didn't think it was to the extent that he was doing this probably like their mom and dad's probably Kate. This guy will help you in school. They probably didn't know that aspect Email side. What do I tell my son because he's going to ask how he and the guy was like just let him know that you're really good friends with the athlete director. They said he would help like so the it's just so many lies like very detailed lies that. I don't know. I feel like you guys are such. I don't think you could pull this off. Oh, I totally could so honest with like you guys are going to be sunny again. I want the best opportunity for her. That's why we have a speech therapist coming every Friday, the method that she is. Yeah. You know, because because she is delayed, and I'd be mad at my parents, if I found now, this was them see, that's you know, that's that's been famous. Because I would be like first of all you think I'm not FM dumb. I needed. How you didn't get the highest score though, and maybe need help helping you weren't a good test taker I can see totally what you're saying. Now what if they're like in jail? I'd be like WPF like now, you guys are leaving me because you wanted me to go to the schools that like what like I would be mad at them and be like the like, but what if it's a school you really wanted to go into and that you did you did want the help. I would just be really sad. I'd be like I feel like I'm sure the kids are feeling really guilty because I'm telling you once you read these E mail. It's so sticky that I'd be like my dad's said like what I mean, there's two different personalities. Don't give a damn I think that probably just like that was like. That was like a damn versus day. I don't know. It's it's just odd. It's a little areas in hearing your perspective, those I will because you don't have kids. And that's I'm not saying that in a bad way. At all. It's interesting to see that perspective because I never thought of it from how Jolie would feel. Yeah. I I'm telling as such a selfish way too big. I want the best for my child. And I'm just looking at it. As like because I remember my dad being like, do you want to go to UT? And I was like I mean, it's not like he could give five million dollars. But I remember him being like want help. And I was like I I don't really care. Ultimately, you don't want your kids stuff to settle.

Hey, queue, my first time here with you and your gorgeous. Oh my gosh. Kim the real face to face. I don't have any makeup bonds Roth right now. So I'm feeling real nice right now. Thank you. I appreciate like natural less is more. Sometimes just like. So I feel like I have the opposite of a hoarder because when I love moving I love organizing, I love packing. So I know that's the weirdest thing. But I love getting rid of sorry soon. I just love it. I think it's the most freeing thing and just being like, I I'm always a rid of it give it away same fell or like, we're giving you a friend. I don't know what it is. But I think. One. No. I just I I don't know what it is. I think it's just it. Just you feel light. Let me say this about that. Okay. You're hired. Oh, just. Girlfriend, and I are moving and I was like, oh, let me come over and help like, you know, purge splurge put it away and packing. One of three percent of the people in America. We really loved to just keep it neat and organized. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Congratulations. But I isn't that bad though, too. Isn't there? Maybe I'm there's like two extremes of order, and then me where it's like just give it away. And then you want nothing know knickknacks. No, nothing. Well, sometimes they'll let me just ask you might you have a situation or problem with perfectionism. Why do you look at me like that looking at her? So now, what do you think? A bit profound day. We're both on the spectrum. Really am too like with what though I'm just curious. Oh, hey. Hey, hon. The way you like them better way. I think things done time on your time line. And was if I said to Michael, so let's say this, you know, his water. I say this sitting on the table. I said, hey, baby put that away and he'll go I'm like, no Ono move it layaway like all the way away. So I guess that's where I am a little bit. Okay. More like, let's place it in the proper place. Well, that sounds to me sounds to me like a great house to live in. I don't know. I I'm ready to move in. So what what do you think it is like with hoarders that they have that? Is it the connection to the things? Or is it the memories are? Yeah. A little bit of that. But what I really want you to think about is. Okay. Wait, a second here like an alcoholic, perhaps are someone who gambles or someone who shops too much the, you know, you don't have one reason why it all happens. If I said to someone who drank too much what why are you doing it? And then asked another person they would have different answers. But the common theme is that. I guess it really boils down to some trauma in a, you know, your past life or the anxiety to deal with feelings. You know, always feeling so it's really what's underneath the clutter or underneath the horde on the horror show. How do you distinguish when it comes down to something that may be legitimately sentimental say Jan brother texted her the other day and talked about that one box. Everyone has when they move at your high school yearbook, and and stuff that you feel a certain static. But what are you really going to do with them? How do you distinguish like what's truly important to keep and stuff like that? Maybe that may still be nostalgic. But it's like, okay. You can let that go. Yeah. So Michael, you mentioned something where you said one box of nostalgia nostalgic. You know, that's fine. That's normal should happen. These people have like, but on our hoarder show entire house all of that. Because everything has a meaning to them. But if we're just talking about your listeners viewers what we want. Say is, you know, use my five point value system in order to make a decision. And what is that? Yeah. You have a whole collection of do you have a collection of anything? Either of you. I'm and I'll say I have that that bag with all my high school like, you said, yearbooks and albums and pictures. But again, I haven't looked at it. And it's really Jolie, it's like show your kids. Right. Do you look at your parents theft, though? My brother asked me that. When I go home. I like, my my mom has a when my grandparents died they kept a lot of stuff in my moments. Like, oh my God. I didn't he had letters my grandpa. She was like what's like, yes. Some of those things are so adorable to go through at some point. But if you are but keep yeah. If if you're somebody who keeps a whole bunch of tools in a garage, you know, that I want to say five point value system. Pick your favorite tool, which one is it show it to me. Okay. That's five that's a five nothing else in here can be a five or maybe it's your favorite T shirt collection show me a five the number one T shirt. That's most exciting that you want to keep your collection. And then you start going through all the other ones. Nothing else can be a five is at a four. Is it a three two inches a one and you rate each item? So those items that rate one into the ones with the holes in the stains. Maybe they go out and you keep the five and a couple of the fours on that five point value system is that kinda. The same thing too. Because I've with with kids, and we have a three year old and a three month old, and what we've kind of done is I've taken things like from Jolie that first year like I don't want to get rid of that one one that I loved of seeing her, you know, I want to be able to look back, and like woman goes will go little you were, you know, and and give her some of these things maybe for for her kids. But how when is that too much to do? I have to use the five point with that. Because I think everything is five because it's so sentimental and my kid, right? I know well, it comes to a point later on where see your see you still might be at the point where you're accumulating things. There are three stages of getting organized or being organized or collecting clutter. So the first stage is just getting our independence. We have our own style or way of designing and furniture. Our own friends were collecting people places things. And then we go to the second stage where we have to manage all the crap that we just collected. And then the third stage is hopefully getting rid of the stuff. So you might. Still be in the first stage where you're still in the collecting the problem with the people on the horror show on an e is that they are forever in the collecting stage. So even if they're in their forties fifties sixties seventies eighties. They're still collecting, and it doesn't work come to ask. Sorry. No Gobi because mine's an easy question. I'll remember. Okay. Eric Bibb going. The man calls for like a month. What start age wise? Do you see it primarily in older people or do you? What's the age range that you see for hoarders? Yeah. So most people think it's just people in their older year. Yeah. Because that's kind of my thought, I'm like, okay. My grandparents probably or that age range up, and we see it more there because they don't have as many friends. They don't have as many family members coming to visit people who are younger are people. You know having. We're having guests over we're having kids. But we have a lot of folks who are younger who are in the hoarding. Yeah. They're hoarders. You start with sorry. Do you start with inside? I like inside. They're like what's going on? I with them before you touch their stuff. That's kind of like my question. I was just gonna be like, do you think there's something like, yeah. Yeah. There is sewing. I know you're going going. On up there in the brain area. Yeah. There is they you have to work with that first before you say take get rid of that. Yeah. There's two parts of it. I mean, there's the wiring. Some of us are just like your frontal lobe Janet it is completely wired for organizing and other people are not but for those people who do hoard. Yeah. There's something that's missing for them. And it could be the missing could be a person it could be a job loss at could be a major illness. You know, all of these things trigger some sort of anxiety that you just can't deal with. So it's like a form of things -iety basically can beat them walking over their stuff to get to their room. How does that give them exactly? Diety? Now, that's comfort. That's getting that deal. So much Zayed's. We're like psycho. So we're like, oh, I don't want any people barely get to their room as much south. They have barely get in the door. I mean, we've had situations on the horror show where we can't even open the door, and we're in New York City and walk up and could not get not healthy problems to the sanitary. Yeah. Is there one? I'm sure everyone has something different than maybe they want to collect or hordes specifically. But there's there one universal kind of topic or concept that they like the hold onto across the board. That people have an issue with is stuff of nostalgia. Is it just their own collectible is there? Anything universal across the board for the people that you've seen. Yes, recycling. Really? Yeah. Now, this is where a lot of the people who are not hoarders get stuck as well. Because we want to be good to the planet. Now, if you're a person who ords then you say, well, I'm trying to recycle. So I have. The plastic. I have all the paper. I have all the food. I have everything and I'm keeping it to reuse it. And I've got a great idea to reuse it whether it's a boat in the backyard. Whether it's goats in the backyard who've chewed their way through the house real true story from hoarders on a any really true. That goats true chewed through the house into the house. Doesn't matter. What it is. There's a purpose. So if you feel like, oh, you have a purpose for everything you're going to hold onto a whole lot more. So like, I feel like anytime I've seen the show stacks of newspaper paper like everywhere. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely. Stacks of paper everywhere because they're great ideas that they win the printer is working, Michael when it's working dislike the plumbing or electric city, if it's working, but when when the printers working, they print out all these documents on the how to do something they are definitely going to DIY it, and they're gonna take care of it what? Julia to this life. Style of helping others unholy. What is your house? Look like is are are you the organized Nancy? You can come into Dorothy. My house is really organized, and I'm married to somebody who's really really organized. So we we get along really well and travel well together, but this dropped in my lap. Now mind you I tend to work with all of the celebrities here in Los Angeles. I'm really lucky so I get to go in and organiz beautiful homes, but most people just know me from the horror show, and so it dropped in my lap. There was this gentleman here in the Los Angeles area had five thousand bikes and bike parts. Inside his house. Yeah. And he was sleeping outside his south recliner chair. So he was going to jail and that was like twenty years ago, and then the horror show found me, and I was on the pilot, and then I was technical producer helping everybody. Learn how to deal with this hoarding situation. Now, you're a bestselling author and your current book is stuff your face or face your stuff. I love that. That's a great title. What happened don't you happen? So I was on the set of the horror show, and I had this realization at two hundred pounds that I was hoarding sugar and flour around my body the same way, my clients hoarding things in their house. And I thought this has got to stop. So I took off seventy five pounds and wrote a book on how the parallels because I really feel like I defi- with these people who can't stop bringing things in. That's so is it at first you probably didn't identify at all. Yeah. Exactly. Like, what interests back on your part to see that? Yeah. Well, little embarrassing to show. Share about. But no, I think that's just make more. I'm sure that's like a major relation like people over eating or ordering food, basically imagine. When when I if I'm overweight and someone comes in and wants to take away. My just baked cookies and milk. How I'm gonna feel like get your hands on my style and interesting how these people feel on the horror show with us which is airs Tuesday at eight seven central on Anne, and then you have the ten minute closet organizer dot com, which I need to read because we're we're moving to Nashville, and I'm just I gotta figure out how how we want to organize the closet. So what what's like your biggest tip on on that for closet? Yeah. For closets. It's really how you like to organize it. So it's a customized solution. But are you a person who likes to organize by category or by color, more by usefulness? Like does it need to go the dry cleaner? Do I need to have it. Mended. Do I have to have it. I end whatever these things are or by days of the week, if you have kids, so there's like ten different families of these closet dividers that you can use to organize their closet.

As about Lola because Lola is a female found a company offering a line of organic cotton, tampons pads liners all natural cleansing wipes. Sara, yes, it's so annoying.

And this is Sarah. So we kind of talked about it last week's episode was it last week CEPA sewed about two weeks. Yeah. And sarah. You texted me, something really interesting do wanna share or no. Just literally I'm never safe where we talk about. I don't even know what we talked about. You talked about the scale about how I realized that I was. That was something that I can control was the number on the scale. So that became kind of my Elaine, basically said that like it's your way of control, you can't control things. So you control scale or something? Yes. So I kind of just came to realization where we were talking about like, you know, I wouldn't say I'm like addicted or not it's a control thing working out for me as a control thing because I feel like in other aspects of my life. I might be not in control, and I'm a control freak. And so I kind of I was on the treadmill as I'm listening to this lady tells you, and I'm like, I think that's my thing. Like, I think I get cranky or I get like if I don't work out. It's like becomes a whole thing. And so I think that that might be my. Little data controlling it's my. Yeah. Because like if I know okay, I went, and I was on the treadmill for this long. And you know. Yeah. So I think same with the scale once it becomes obsessive. And once it becomes something. Like, for example, if you can't work out in a day if it bothers you so much where you don't even have an joyful day. Then it's an issue. But that it's just feel good after because it's like that balance where it's like, okay. Is it the endorphins or am? I just like, you know, right? So when you say issue, though, is that an eating disorder issue like what is the category of in eating disorder? Great question. So there's a lot of there's a lot of different spectrum is huge because I feel like majority of people have disordered eating with their either relationship with their body or relationship with food the scale, there's so many different things such a hot topic because. I mean, I've been working the eating disorder filled for eighteen years, and I work at USC as a sports dietitian there. And I run a program for healthy body image and eating and I also work for the LA kings. So it's so interesting, a very vast, you know, different way of looking at this from an athlete perspective of the obsession of exercising and looking certain way to perform, and then you have you know, when you're done being an athlete or just like the my normal clients that I see my private practice. They feel like if they're not controlling it. They're going to be auto control or they're not going to look the way they want to. So it's easier for them to get on a scale multiple times a day. It's easier for them to make sure they're working out, you know, to compensate for what if they had a cookie that day. So then it becomes unhealthy. So there's a there's a difference between I exercise because it makes me feel good or check my weight once in a while to see, you know, kind of what my body's doing see I don't have a scale. So that's weird. 'cause we're like opposite in that. But you're still obsessive or something. Yeah. No one hundred percent. Yes. That's like. So that's why they're why they're saying even they're different right? It's not. I don't think it's that you care about what you way, I think it's I mean there are so many beside when you're obsessed to work because you do you're not in a good mood when you don't work out. Yeah. So so that's that is a problem. So again, like an eight years, so, but it's like I'll go eat like, it's not like. Time time out. I'm going to call you out right now. Oh, this is good. Okay. We don't gather. -gether? Sarah, no one I asked you to e and you're like, I'm not eating right now. I'm not eating right now is truly the close my old joke. That's not a joke though. Because you get fairly would not eat. You said you your you said that you'd have one meal a day. Okay. But that's a joke. It's not a joke because no, actually. But if I was look it's not like, I'm like skin him bomb, it'd be like, Johnny. But I think that for me. I would rather for me. I would work this right now. I'd rather work out. The naughty is not make sense. But that's not healthy. Right. Exactly. You have to have food to get your body work out. That's what I said. Like, I want I like to eat. That's what I'm saying. What you don't though you say you don't eat like. Right. And I don't want to in a mood. But why why is no because I know no. Because it's like a mood thing. Like, I know that like sometimes I'm like you. I'm just like cranky or like something's going on. So I'm like, I'm just like annoyed and I. My when I'm unhappy. I don't have an appetite. So I'm the opposite of someone. Who's like, oh my God. I'm eating my feelings. I'm the opposite. Sure. And that and I found that out years. I I know that about me I am someone who when I'm not in a good place. I just I'm like, I don't have an I don't feel good. But I'm not working out either. So right, and that that can happen. And that's good that you know that about yourself. I do know that right in terms of I mean. Exercise. What I would do is recommend. You forcing yourself to have day off. Yeah. No. I definitely do at time. But I'm just like I wish I worked out, you know. And then just end do you have to sweat? That's the other thing too. Because some people go, okay. Let's go outside go for a while. Yeah. I don't have to sweat. I just have to be. Maybe it's like an ADD thing. I don't know. I just have to be like going going. Yeah. Moving doing. Yeah. That's weird. I don't have to sweat so back to the kind of thing would would you categorize what is what is the window for what an eating disorder as like would that be categorized as not necessarily? No. I mean, certainly the obsession is is a is a problem. Like if it's taking away something for your life. For example, if you have to go pick up, a friend at the airport, and you're like, I don't know if I should because I've met exercise class that I have to go to like, oh, that's a lot of my clients that I see that they will like that trumps everything, but they won't do certain things because that's the time to work out or if they don't work out. They really do obsess about it all day long, and it. Really bothers them. That would be, you know, along the disorder type of mentality with more control. Yeah. It's not there yet. Yeah. So it's not there. I'm glad you came on. Because I had a listener DM me that was really upset about the lot last podcast 'cause they were very shocked how I could promote an unhealthy habit, which I wasn't promoting it someone came on to promote their diet. And I I didn't agree with the diet. But I couldn't I didn't want to be rude. I didn't want to sit there and be like lots some I could never do that. But basically they said to not eat within sixteen hours right in that fasting. Yeah. Yeah. And I just from your perspective because it's person hadn't eaten how good you promote that people that have 'em. Like, I'm not promoting that. Right. I we have gas on that come on to promote their things, and you know, I never put like, my stamp of approval on that. Because I don't agree with that. And that's the thing that I couldn't do as from someone from the eating disorder background. You know, what are your thoughts on that? So definitely no one should be doing that. If they've had an eating disorder or they have any kind of disordered way of thinking around food. I've had clients who've done that and are successful, but have never had an eating disorder. They do it for other reasons, but I would agree with you for the majority of people that doesn't work for them at all. So if it becomes something that they again are obsessed with or ready restrictive. This would just add fuel to the fire. So I don't think it works for everybody. Do I think it works for some people and they have success over? Yes. But that's for people who have their very, overweight, they have other health issues. Like if you look at the science of it there is science behind it. So I'm not gonna say that they're that. It's not a good idea for a handful of people for people who have a very different background than if somebody were you know, to have an eating disorder or a ready in a restrictive wave thinking, this would be something. They would clearly stay away from. So what are signs to look out for the? If people are worried about maybe if they have this in eating disorder or not, well, that's a great question too. Because I feel like this could be a whole nother series because I think majority of Los Angeles. I mean, when you talk to girls, what is the topic of conversation when they look it. You looks us. Yeah. Oh my God for non do. Right. So I think there is this obsession with it. And it's sad because I see a lot of young girls. So I also specialize in young kids that are come into my office. So eleven year old twelve year old girls that I see I see boys as well. And obviously it starts at home. The jury of the time when I see kids all talk to the mom or dad, I and see what's going on. And I know you have a daughter as well, as what do we say that we don't shouldn't do because I mean, you think you can hide it from them. And you can't. So that's the first thing. We'll so if you're eating like if I if I see a mom and she's like, yes. But I'm, you know, forty seven and I can't eat carbohydrates like my daughter should. So I. I eat steamed spinach and a and I just don't eat the carbs. But I always make her pasta. And I'm like, you don't understand she's gonna watch. And do exactly what you do even though you're telling her, no you need them. Honey, you're growing. No. So honestly, you have to be really normal, quote unquote with your food and body as well, if you say just in passing like these pants on me, look so fat or even though you don't think she's paying attention. It's so interesting on my clients when I start opening up, and they start talking all the little snippets that they get from. You know, obviously social media in commercials and stuff like that. But definitely at home. So you even having a scale out at all as a not a healthy thing. I would say I'm I got. Oh my God. The worst mom ever. Because what like way myself, and then should like my turn my turn. I know. I know I know, but she's only done it like twice. But now, I'm like, yeah. The two times I'm like, oh my God. I'm never letting her stuff on that ever gang said don't want her to think like she has to wait. Here's so if just the okay, so this gives you any kind of motivation to put the scale away and not know that it's it's her for sure because they will hide it from her. I would just no not I would not we should you know, because ice to be exactly like that. In fact, I used to travel with the scale like when we go. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So this is a hole that could be another whole hour. We can just talk about about how crazy you can get. But when you ask me like what are the signs to look for its when it starts to become where I have clients. I'm not gonna go to Kabore on vacation because I don't feel good enough swimsuit. I'm like, you're missing out on that time with your friends and that those memories because you don't feel good in a swimsuit. That's. Sad. When you're sitting there, calculating your calories, and your MAC rose, and becomes the first thing, you think about when you get up and the last thing you think about before you go to bed. We'll so what if it's what if that person just wants to lose weight, though. But there's so many ways to do it that are having count collared that you don't have to count calories, your guests that you had on when you talk about the scale. I really liked her. I felt like she had exactly what I promote to which is the hunger scale, and really there's things that will always stay true. Which is if you eat when you're hungry and you stop when you're satisfied you exercise a good amount of time. Maybe five days a week for good. Our and you do I don't have time to do that. No is week five days five times a week. Well, you don't exercise like fortify? You. Don't move your body where I meant. I've got two kids. I don't know how moving your body. That's all right. You're probably busy with them. It's like it's just not sitting here. Like you're doing now on a date like you have to be moving. That's probably a better way of saying. All right. And then you. You have to watch your stress, and you need to be sleeping and drinking water. What about things that's totally fine. Okay. Yeah. I mean, not every day. I mean, you can one glasses fine. But, but when you asked me about like, how do people control their weight in a healthy way? That's that's the key listening to their body. Regular exercise drinking, lots of water, ideally, learning how to deal with stress like meditation and sleep and and to surround yourself with good energy. And honestly, those the keys. You work with a lotta collegiate and professional athletes, right? Former put in the NFL for a while. And would have you seen have you dealt with many athletes, kind of transitioning from sport into of quote, unquote, normal real life. And I I've had a struggle is not as much now. But especially when I first retired rose eating the same. Obviously, I'm not bringing the same amount of calories. Like what kind of tips tricks advice? Do you have like even now I still have a struggle with it? But just kind of for those former athletes transitioning into, you know, normal day life or you're not doing that. You can't eat the same amount of and protein over and over and over again like wetter. That's a great question. So we before of our athletes leaves our senior ethics. We have this huge basically seminar where they understand how to how to cook. So I teach cooking classes grocery shopping skills. Like, what are you looking for? You know, how to make easy quick meals, and then really learning to readjust listening to the body. So there so condition to eat a certain way. So it's a habit right because they're exercising. Inverting somebody calories. So we really sit down and try to help them figure this out, which is you need to not stop thinking that you can just get away with eating multiple like cheeseburgers French fries or eating late at night because you're going to burn it off the next morning and weights in practice, or whatever. So it's psychological. I it, you know, realizing that okay, you're not gonna have as much output. So here's what you need to do. And you need to make sure you're planning ahead. So those kind of people that for sure when they're getting into the work life that they need to batch cook. And I teach them sort of how to do that. So how do you have things in the refrigerator that you can take to work, and then you need to be eating instead of eating a lot of carbohydrates. Oh, it's the flip. It's like instead of the add those extra carbohydrates who added more vegetables. So more vegetables, moderate, carb. Moderate protein versus a good. And we have I've played. So that I show them. So they can get a good visual of like. Okay. Here's what your plate looks like. Now. Here's what it needs to look like as you transition. But there there needs to be a conversation because as you can see a lot of people who are either get injured or who leave their sport have a lot of weight issues, at least depression that leads to heart issues and cluster, all and other you know, kind of disastrous things that can happen. So there's a huge amount of education that we give to our athletes about that. For seniors going off into the real world. And even I mean, but that's the thing athletes, you know, even in college, and then in a professional level, your meals are basically provided for you. So even when I left the NFL, it's like, all right? I cook a little bit. But proportionately it's hard to cook. For one person at the time. I was still eating the same thing. Also, a lot of carbs, and pastas and meats in all that all the time. Where it's I mean, are I like year and a half together, I'll still like my plane weight, and I was like there's no reason for me to be two hundred and fifty pounds. It was brutal, epi? The other thing too. That's a the skill to for athletes versus a non athlete. I will tell you one of the biggest issues is eating slower. So my athletes because they have to get to class or they have they're shoving food in. So when they learn how to transition, I'm like, okay, I want you to actively side your how two kids I'm like, I'm trying to fit like he'll have a couple of bites. I'm feeding jas then McCague like I'll take them. So you can have a couple of bites why because we're, you know, always falls at the same time. And then Joel likes it doubt. Sit like a big girl. Eat your food. No jolie. Don't put your hands and use your fork like Mike, and I'm like shoving, and then I don't even remember how it tastes. It has that as a constant very hard. I have two kids as well. I mean, it's very difficult. The transition of now athlete non athlete to then. Parents that's like a whole 'nother thing it is challenging. But I would say, you know, at least you have a plate of food. Don't be standing. So I have what's called Christie's rules, which are really interesting like wine is. No standing and eating, but that's like my life mine. So I don't even have kids and I stand in. When you're gone. I do like when we're not when we don't have family dinners. I stand. But I get the whole thing of trying to balance, you know, one kid on your lap and trying to eat and that kind of thing try to be as mindful as you can it's not going to be perfect. And you've got to give yourself some grace. And that those moments are just like it is what it is. But when you have the time, and you can sit and you can just relax to not try to be distracted by your phone or anything else. But to really just no phones that's a great massacre. We have to what's the worst food that you thought proper were the worst food. What's the worst thing? You can put in your body. There is nothing like that. No such thing that is my firm belief way. And I'll tell you I'll tell you. Why a solid doesn't make somebody healthy and a cheeseburger is not gonna make somebody unhealthy, right? So whether you go there over there. Yeah. Exactly. I think how it gets. So like, oh, my God that has carrageenan it or it has whatever. And I was like so what? So the reality is when I met, you know, when I go to Disneyland and my kids wanna eat some whatever caramel apple, I know that it's not made with the best ingredients. But I'm gonna eat it because it's fun. And I'm with them. And I wanna be dislike let go for the majority of the time. I eat really healthy and clean and some of the time. I eat things that are just because so there's not one food that's gonna make you unhealthy. Just like there's not one that's gonna make you healthy. It's really about the balance between the two honestly moderation. Like, no. No. Moderation. What about for for Jolie, though? So my fear is an idol ever want to portray this on her. But what if 'cause I don't 'cause childhood obesity is is a real a real thing. Yeah. I don't wanna be the super strict mom where she's so tightened about her way. But at the same time, I don't want her to be obese either. So I'm like what is the balance that I walk without making her Felix. She has to be thin, right? But also, I don't know how to Wofford Ray. It's a great question. And I love this topic. Because I think kids right now are so confused because either they're getting these mixed messages or they have parents that. So I go into my kids class is fourth grade class, and I teach a weekly they really need to be educated. That's the bottom line. You have to educate them. You have to help them move and not to shame them about eating sugar. But just like with my kids, it's like when they're hungry when they come home. I have a plate of fresh vegetables some fruit, maybe some almonds. Instead of like, oh, you want another bag of pirates video you want? Another thing of goldfish latest parents Budi bat. No, not at all. But let's go to know. But I'm just saying like when you have those opportunities in their hungry. That's the best way to get some fruits and vegetables in them because they're hungry. So so it's trying to just give them. It's like, you know, let's start with fruits and vegetables first. And then yeah, if you want pirate's booty goldfish, or whatever it is. But I feel like taking you don't wanna also over snack them. And I think that's a big problem. And I'll always ask my kids like are you physically hungry or you just want to eat because you're watching something or because you, you know, so it's just those types of little bits of education are wondering into the kitchen and starting to go in the pantry and certain eating something like no put it on a plate. Let's go sit down eat your snack and then move on. So just developing those kinds of good habits once in a while. I'll let them eat on the couch, but really making the table a place where they eat their food and their snacks. And then moving on to play whatever versus like foods all over the. House.

So let's you, Tori. So I kind of want to wrap up the college conversation that we talked about earlier, but I want to wrap it up with micro friend, Leslie, she's been on the podcast before. And she has her take on it, Leslie, their boo. Yeah. So we were kinda obviously we texted a little bit about this yesterday. And you know, Sarah has kind of her opinion from the kid side about how she would be upset with their parents. If if, you know her her parents paid for them, and then I'm kind of on the side where you know, I would do anything for my child, although I feel bad for the kid that is working so hard to get there. And but I'm, but I'm also Torrance, I'm just kinda curious from another mom's perspective, what your thoughts are on it. Yeah. Well, so this is like not in the you know, this is not far off for us. Sean is gonna be there in three years. And it's you know, I guess. For the pure parent standpoint. I want the best for my kids. I I just do I want. I want the best of everything, and I can see how somebody would be motivated. I can see how I parent would be motivated to give their kid that extra edge. Now. I'm not saying, it's right. But I'm saying, I totally see the motivation. Don't I get on there? What if the I feel like there's two sets of motivation? There's one is like you're saying you want the best for your kid, the sack the second is with some of these people being whether it's celebrity or high end executives with their motivation could be they just want to be able to say that their child goes to the Ivy league school or goes to their alma mater because they couldn't get in by do you think there's a big difference in? You know, which motivation is better. Does it really matter because they're still doing the same action to get them in? I I think I I think my motivations better. I think. Wanting the best for my kid is better than being able to say when my kid went to Harvard. I that's that's not what I'm in it for you know, like my motivation is to make sure that China Andrew get get the best possible. That they can in life and bad for the kid that has worked his butt off. That doesn't have the money that would be taking that kids your kids spot dog. But okay, I do what my Clark. Hi, it's Sarah. My question, or like, my argument is okay. So you know, that this is a legal. And you know, there's a chance just aren't you thinking big picture for your kids? Like, okay, I might go to jail because I did this. So you're hurting your child at the end of the day because what if your child goes a year, even if your child goes six months without apparent because you're yeah. Allegedly. You know, what I like is? No. But how often do people think that for head when the consequences of their actions? What do you mean, you know? Here's here's the thing though. Like. I would kill somebody for my kid. I totally go to jail fan. I have no problem with it. I would I just I would that's the whole well that's their side. Like, I feel like I would be someone out for you know, what I get that part. But this is such like, a it's it's not funny. But it's almost just like what like you sit a million dollars. So that your child could go to another. I don't know is that necessary. Oh, I think I think having their go home. I mean, maybe not I don't know. But maybe you might have a different. I mean, no, I get I would do everything for my kid. I get that that I understand. I would kill someone for tie. I get that. I get that. But I say title here put on saying 'cause I don't have a child. So he's the next closest thing. Okay. So I get that. But like, I I don't what I don't understand. I would be if my mom went to jail. I would I I wouldn't recover. I think you're able to see the back end of it because you don't have a kids. So you're thinking of I'm putting my whole picture as a parent you're thinking of like right now because you want to do what's best for your kid. Now, you're not thinking of what can possibly happen. This is not going to be a popular opinion. But just college really matter that much school, right? Ain't yeah. What school my going to college? But what school? Does that? Does. That matter child says no though, then that's fine. But I think yield does really matter or that. That's because people will get better jobs. Right. If they go to that are going to fly one of the alleged had like a two point three. So you're telling me that you have two point three GPA. But now you got into so, and so you're not you're not graduating therapy or point. So there's a kid from my hometown right now got a one point seven and he's going matter day my football fellowship. But not make sense because they're athletes. These people are fake athletes. So they're not belong, but he hasn't belong. Skit. That's that's that was my whole thing that we were talking about earlier was that the whole issue with this whole scenario is that he was disguised was taking scholarship like student athlete scholarships. So like, I was telling Sarah and everyone in here is I wouldn't have gotten into Jayme you if it wasn't for football. So these kids they're taking scholarships away from kids that really needed even more. Because that's the only way they're going to be able to get the education that they want to get by using their athletic skills. I don't think did these kids get scholarships the one who was supposedly on the crew team. I don't think she got a fellowship. It just got her application bums. I don't think she's given any scholarship dollars. No, she wasn't giving money. But I think it takes us. Mark ear desire, new scholarship criminal college also walk on. But it was still a student. Taking. Student athletes spot the reason I got in was because athletic, so they still went under the got into that school under the false pretense of them being a student athlete. Mike. What I have a lot of thoughts on this. When I first heard the this all coming out. My thought was of course, we do anything for my kid. We'd never think I would go to jail for it. But then when I hear about okay? So here's how we're gonna we're gonna pretend your child is learning disabled, so they can get longer to do their SAT, and then they're going to change their score. Anyway, that's what I would have really pulled the rim court at that point. Because then it's like, okay, that's this. Now, this feels wrong in CD, but hours worrying about who's going to jail. I would never have considered that. Because you never hear about it. You never hear about these parents going to jail for what they do. And why didn't they just give the money to the university and pay for a wing of a library or so earlier it was? Yeah. So that's that's a good point. Someone asked me yesterday. So how you know it's different than if someone buys a wings for Harvard and gets their kit in you know, I I don't. So now, it's just above board. You're still buying your kids way into college. There's no guarantee I think which is the problem in this man was one hundred percent. I even read his, quote, he was like in nine hundred this nine hundred students like I'm one hundred percent, Gary guaranteed. So like you have to give thanks. Allegedly you have to give like five million plus to ensure that your child like I mean, five million plus like to a building or a library or or whatever like these people were just not that. It's not that much. But they were giving, you know, fifteen twenty fifth five hundred. Yeah, what's frustrating is. It's never been a level playing field for everybody. Forever. Your song. You have. Oh, sure. You have to do, you know, payola and all those things now you can't do pay a little. But now, it's like you need to do these many things and do this in order to have your one song plate. So what at or it's like, hey in acting worlds like wall. My my, you know, my dad is this person. And so I'm going to get in this movie because he knows this person or what is the frigging different. Right. It's all who you know, wealth gets you in so many ways never been an even playing field. And then there's still gaming the system on top of the uneven playing field. You already have an advantage. Like, these people already have I think that if I think that if we found out it was different families doing this. We might feel different. If you're if you're feeling was in that position when she want to use utilize resources in maximize them as much as you could anyone would. Yeah. Just like anything you get a job. It's about who, you know. And what you know. I I get it. I'm like, I just mostly I just go back for these kids. I know that's what would endure Sean would feel Leslie. If we did that for them. And got. If they if you got not even that you guys got caught, but they found out that you guys did that for them to get in. Do you think they would feel Sarah saying like that you like, oh, you don't think I'm smart enough to get in there? Yeah. I mean, I I know Sean, and he'd be pissed. Yeah. You'd be this. I think he probably likes me. That's how are probably Karen how probably don't. But now, it's just the embarrassed. I mean now, it's kind of embarrassed. You know, these kids are not getting out if embarrassing. No, you're right there. There's no way these kids can show up for class today. Because new all the other kids do you like? To get in here paid to gin near get at it. But by what one girl the girl who got into USC? She is on her YouTube channel thing. Yeah. I don't know. How many go to class? Yeah. That's it. Yeah. That's let's Laura Laughlin daughter. That kind of like, you know, she's again partying on a yacht. So I'm what I'm saying. Is you see that? She was like you people are doing this for USC like. Like. Referred Sanford thing if they're not doing it for their kids. They're doing it for themselves. Right. I think that's wrong. I'm thinking again like Jolie came to your daughter came to his mom, a really, but I just don't I'm like, okay. Well, let me let me see what I can do because I want what I want the best for her. If that's what she wants to go. I would the question is why is she wants that? Great education. Okay. Maybe. But if it's my friends are going there, the better. Social stops looks so good on Instagram because that this Libya Jade person, I guarantee you see if different motivation. I I mean, there are some kids that are young enough that are in sight, Florida young as that want to go to a certain school because of the education. So if that was the case with any of our kids life, it's like, you're not like, I don't know it just as a whole life's not fair, you know. No, no, no. It's just like, I mean, I got rejected. I don't know it just teaches. They want to teach their kids like we try to shield our kids from all failure. And now it's kind of become long negative experiences of any kind, and I'm guilty of it. Yes. But then also to you know, what I've kind of experienced with Jolie is, you know, she's people are being. So mean to her even there was a a comment on our podcast saying, why don't you pay attention to your daughter? She's three years old and acting like one like she has his speech. Why don't you go? She has life's too like, yes. I haven't been public about that. Because I'm like, she's three, and we have a speech therapist coming over bumming maniacally bullying my challenge. So now, it's now I don't feel like I'm a good. I'm like when I I feel like I failed my daughter's. How did I not, you know, I don't know? But I don't I wanted to have the best chances of doing good in school. So I would pay anything to make sure that she's not being bullied and she's going to be properly educated. And of course in those those are normal situations. I think and you don't even want you could be bullied for any reason. But like, you know, stuff like, you know, my daughter went out for a musical left year for Aladdin as you got jasmine in this part of those like, you know, it might have been a good learning experience if she hadn't gotten she gets all as kosh if she gotta be every once in a while at my kind help a little bit because you set these incredibly high standards for a self, and we're guilty of setting those standards. Do you want to speak on your thing at all or? No. And I understand if you don't want to. Here. I'll just I'll just say that. I don't even all day yesterday. Yeah. No. I had a I had a rough mom day yesterday. And it's in the grand scheme of things, I'm not gonna go into detail, but in the grand scheme of things, it's no big deal. But for me it felt like a total parenting fail because it was something that I was doing that was the neighboring behavior, and when I got called out on it, and it pull out is it really the right word win. When it was brought to my attention. Yeah. I was like, oh like, that's that's sorry. That's all me that meet a guy did that assume that's an inevitable about when like Sean didn't make the soccer team. Like, did you feel would you go would you? That was go ahead. What would you have the coach to be like, hey, I want him. But it's the same thing. Yeah. No. I wouldn't you know, I wouldn't. And I'm not saying that I would that I would pay to get into Harvard or Yale. I'm not saying that I would do that. I'm saying I can totally see the motivation. What I love to talk to the coach and say, hey, dude. Like he missed a really good player. Like, he's a strong player. Yes. I would love to and I in the coach even wrote an Email and said, hey, if you wanna know what he needs to work on feel free to reach out. And I was so close to doing it. And I thought you know, what I'm not because Sean needs to own that if Sean wants to know why he didn't make the team he needs to own that. But I'm not gonna say that I didn't sit down and cracking Email delayed it I mean, my heart would be broken nose Jolie audition for something or try to offer something and didn't get it. I I would be balling for her. But I would never our never dress. The teacher the coach because there's never been a kid that has gotten the spot on a team because a apparent went after the fact and talked to a coach talk to never happens the kid. Are you going to be so upset if Jolie tries out for let's say she tries out for soccer and doesn't make the soccer team. Oh. Talk. Absolutely. It'll stuck I'll feel for. But we all went through that. We all went through that. We're fine going like edit your the better team guy cheerleaders. Example of it right now. Because every day you're doing on, you know, what I mean like, you're still strong and resilient and for Mike at the then I just want I know to build resilience in our children. Yeah. My listen, everything for them. We just want to wrap them in bubble wrap. I realized that, but it's hard term. It's not card it when you see them disappointed disappointed ready for that. You know? I even said to Chris I'm like why does it bother me so much that he got cut from the team? Why do I care? So why am I invested? I to me, but it does because he was so bummed. But you know, what to that kids credit? He looked at me. He goes I'm trying out again next year. I love that. I thought to myself this for you me. That's a win for you. Chris that says a win for you guys. The fact that he's willing to take that on the chin, and then say you want next year, I'm going out not I'm gonna quit saga forever and ever gonna play. So hang your head on that. That's a win for you guys. Thank you for letting us call you. I just wanted. You know, some some mom, another mom opinion. But love your face. See you tomorrow. All right. Well, I think the end of the day is we all agree that we just need to do rapid bubble wrap. Wrap the bubble round. When she falls. I'm like, actually, no, gene o five time out my girlfriend. I know we need to wrap this up, but my girlfriend Julie, would it was was touring a school and a kid said do you remember what he said he called her Soma, go do e?

You know, why why it's the latest on a Friday we've ever recorded. Wow. So this is the freshest how many episodes we done hundred eighty eight eight hundred eighty eight so out of a hundred and eighty eight episodes, this is the freshest reasonable doubt, you could get and I'm going to tell you yesterday. I had a great day because I was sitting in a Brooklyn courtroom federal court on a case, I've got now I represent Clare Bronfman who's the Seagram's heiress, and she's charged in this Nexium supposed sex cold case and Tenny represents her law firm represents Keith Rene, very who's the guy that they they the government portrays that ring leader, so. I was watching Tenny performing court and sitting with my client. And then after that, obviously, I felt a little proud of my daughter jarring courtroom watching courtroom something that I never co-counsel the case with my father. So it was interesting. And I was thinking about that. I then go with the client down to the second Florida pretrial services and on the TV they've got a TV in as the client is playing with the ipad to check in. With the pretrial services on the TV is Jesse smaller with Tina from my office, the live from Chicago is they're showing the arraignment in the port young with long hair. Correct. I watching this woman come walking sort of by Jesse like when the when the space shuttle comes in for it's landing at f- at air Edwards Air Force base or wherever it is. There's a t- eighteen trainer something that just flies a little bit off its wing and ran clicks behind and that's sort of what she was doing. I like I like into two when I saw that. I said the kind of looks matrix like this is coming down the hallway then they've got her in the courtroom. And I was watching that. And I'm thinking, wow, that's kind of cool then I get into the car to go to the airport. So I could come back here for a mediation today into do reasonable doubt in the studio, and I'm being interviewed by a magazine trade magazine, which I can't reveal yet because it hasn't. Who's giving banned? You know, what do you call been born cop? Yeah. Good cop. Boy. Yeah. Born cop is getting an award or been named impact lawyer of the year. Yeah. And then as I land at the airport. So I do that interview talking about him in his career. And then as I land Alexandra kazarian who works for me. I saw on the news a footage of her dealing with the security guard at WalMart who's accused of murder and shooting the homeless person I said now that's not a bad day. It was odd. Yes. Over the place. What do you think of that? I love the notion that you, and I like anything that seems far away from from me. I appreciate it. More. If you tell me, I can ride a unicycle, I go so what I can ride you. It's meaningless. But if you do something my family is so unfair family oriented. I mean, my family of origin. My dad doesn't no-one said Corollas are proud. You know, we do things together you, you know, you're gonna fall you're gonna follow my footsteps. I've never even talked to my dad about business or life or anything. And I love your insane pride about your ethnicity. Your dad your relationship with your dad, your daughter, your son to a lesser degree. Short. Order comes with either way. Jake, jake. Portrait Cutty suck job. He's not working two jobs. Gotta watch. Conquering the world shake right around thanksgiving 'cause nobody makes the process. Russell Coutts like any cars Turkey. Over the process sprouts talent either way. All right. And the fact that you beam. It's just it's a great thing. It's way it's great to watch. Because all of them, you know range in age from twenty eight to thirty eight. And so it's really kind of cool to see I've been it's a it's a great thing to see it take great pride. So Jesse smaller? Jussie smollet is amazing. This case is amazing. I've interestingly to me, I think we've now got discovery I'm not going to disclose it. I don't know if we took it under protective order yet. I still have not seen anything anything at all. That would explain. In fact, I will tell you in the last week. I think Gary was it Monday that the brothers lawyer was out there being interviewed of this week. It was very early this week. I think Monday is. Yeah. Boy that talk about others brothers lawyer. Talk about somebody doing you a favor. I you Famer doing me a favor. Yeah. I don't know that I could have cross examined as well as she did a direct. I've said that often about junior DA's. I laugh at me say your direct was better for my client than my cross would have been and her interviews were better for Jesse than anything. I could've done well in. We were I was thinking about so I always use one of your clients capper Nick as sample, which is like just don't don't give them. Don't give them anything. It's a saucer milk. Don't put it out on the back porch. You don't want the feral cat to hang around. Don't do it. I was talking about you take a look at the governor Virginia, then the Lieutenant governor. And so big mess. They what what's happened. Did. They did nothing. Just it kind of came. And went the promise they gave a couple of press conferences and a couple of sit downs like inbetween just sort of extended like you took this thing. It would have been one or two new cycles. You turn it in Iraq soup. You just kept adding ingredients to it. If fed the whole village, you could've just left it alone on true. And you the I I. People often say I want your clients will say sometimes I want you get what you do this. I want you to do that. This is why just put your head down. I guarantee so is getting in front of a microphone. I have no idea. And boy, it's just I mean, if I'm the prosecutor in that case, I'm looking at that. I'm saying what the hell, you know. I I got the police chief coming out and telling me, okay, they got paid thirty five hundred dollars for the attack by check. Then she comes on. And then I go on. I I did one interview just to push back because it was it was it was so out of this universe. And then she comes back goes. Well, yeah, I think it was for training. But maybe it was a dream. But maybe it was also a favor, and you know, and I I don't know I constructed a timeline you construct at a timeline. Yeah. And when I construct a time line, I figured out. This is what happened. I'm thinking myself, you constructed a timeline for the two guys, and you figured out that it was a hoax. That's so that's your strategy is to how you're going to spend this what about so there's there's. So much here. And there's so much people know so much. I think they know, but there's only so much. You can say I'm I'm curious about the whole scandal with the college. I'm curious. Always something. Can I tell you something cubs going to get? I'm glad you asked that. So I'm sitting I don't know where when this broke they before yesterday somewhere. I've lost track of time because I'm running all over the place. Literally, I'm with a client who will remain nameless whatnot one of the aforementioned, and we're in kind of a heated discussion about various aspects of the case. And apparently this indictee the search more arrest warrants. I should say are being executed. And apparently, my office is getting blown up. My cell phone is getting blown up. I'm literally inundated with people calling. I go by and for three hours. I'm off the grid. I just I can't even keep up with emails anymore. So by the time, I look at it. And it's like where the hell of you been because you cannot believe because almost all of this ground zero is here in southern California. Right in terms of the defendants, even though it's. Indicted in Boston SC's got more than their fair share of this case. And then the poor poor. Rick Caruso, who was brought in post the last scandal at USC, you know, who he is. He's the developer. Could you get your break? Oh my God. He just he wanted to run for mayor so bad. It just gets getting wacked every nineteen months. Something comes up and he just gets PR bat to the face. It's an boot leave -able and Rick. I know Ricky's a good guy. I mean, he's a solid guy. And I think what he's done with Americana and the grove, I think very guy. Yeah. Yeah. I had the she was on the on. Yeah. It's funny. Laurie. Laurie Laughlin has been fired from what anything she ever had in. What are they going to yank or syndication thing? First off look if she was luxuriating on that yet, that's one thing. But if she's paddling the in training for the new Cruces in coming up that is a difference equation. I'll wait I'm gonna wait. I want to hear the facts I didn't hear engine turning. And when I saw her Instagram I didn't hear anything in the background. She could've paddled it out there to the sea of Cortel. I do not I do not represent anybody either as a plane afford defendant criminal defendant or civil plaintiff. But I do have am bef-. I do have immediate reactions which I will disclose. And which I have disclosed the people who call just to be fair you're living in Los Angeles. You're affluent if you're caught up in this, and maybe the feds haven't got to yet. But you understand very clearly what is going on. And you probably live in Los Angeles, your most certainly affluent. And so who you're going to call and we'll ask why? By the way, if you're in custody who's your husband get a call? And if you're right. Yeah. And if you've got an agent who are they going to call? So all that. But the flattering. Yeah. I liked it. I mean it was enjoyable in fact, I can't tell you the number of lawyers who have called me texted me and said Mark throw me a bone or throw me a client first off million dollar Bill. Yeah. Okay. That's where I was going to go. Okay. I get it. It's the story is beautiful because it pushes buttons, you know, it white privilege. It's the there's rich guys. It's legacy. It's you know, Donald Trump junior is making fun of whoever else. I get I get those laws post to be getting involved with that aspect of life. Lori Laughlin a flight risk. I mean why because they cancelled all her shows. And by the way, at base every parent is trying to do the best thing for their kid that is part of the alike it or not it's part of the. Dream are they cheating? Yes. Does everybody? Try to cheat. Unfortunately, you know, the people then to when it comes to their kids. They do crazy do crazy stuff. That's what parents do. I don't want to no disrespect. But Jake was not exactly chef boyardee academy material and tell. And tell Mark blue in. Hold on a few strings. Or you know at the guy with. Michelin star restaurant. You know? It's funny. You say that because I tried to do exactly that with Jake, and he rebelled against it. Really? Yeah. Rebel? And I did I didn't. I'm so clueless. When it comes because every parent, I you should want you'd want parents urge it's kind of like your point about, you know, the family, where's the family? We're there now. That's the urge you. Yes, that's yours. So yes, is it out of control? Yes. It's like anything else markers. Like, I know, mama. Celeste person told well, I look my what am I partner at Provo is Donna Attila. I wanted him to go. Go ahead. And I said, what's the other, blah, blah, blah. There's so there's a version of this that has been going on in show business and business in college. It's called nepotism. It's been going legacy admissions make contribution. It's I hate to tell you flash. Yes. This is what happens, by the way. Anytime you see a business that says and sons, it's basically the sun going into the business at the dad arrogance and Garriga Cy walk. What did I do? I left on a law school, and boom, I I go into business with my old Mazo get it this notion that by the way, I feel like we had the same reaction to craft at the rub and tug like oh my goodness. What where my pearls. I need a clutch. Something like I said rich guy wants to get yanked seventy seventy cave kid, go get a rub and tug at seventy seven when you're a billionaire, and you won the six championship who can't get a rubbing ton. And also are we so? This notion that like are we show surprised about Laurie Laughlin behavior to me feels very par for the course, I'm sure there's a version of it going on all day every day and time. So why a million dollars bail? I have no idea. It's federal court. I don't get it in federal the part where the we have to go extra cater from Beverly Hills. Home turns into raid on Entebbe. Why can't they just show up at noon? I don't they just call them and tell them we'll meet you there. I mean, there is a thing called self surrender. When I started practicing thirty six years ago, virtually this was unheard of you'd call the lawyer. It was very civilized call the lawyer, call the person and tone to show up. That's it. Well terms of flight risk. She's not even in the country. Yes. In canada. Yeah. Shooting a lifetime special. So just cancel contractor people. And just tell her to meet you at the courthouse. I know what you do on the run from on the run for cheating on the SAT's. I by the way, this sort of show of force by the government. There's a there's a Certa Darryl gates. You know, cram cows with the battering ram version of it, and there's sort of a white collar version of it. And there's you know, some of the some of the Roger stone guys, these are just civilians. I you maybe they did something wrong tip. Just tell cinema tax to meet you at the court. I understood white risks. They're not dangerous and you're asking by the way, when you show up at six AM with guns. You're asking for dog to get shot for somebody to get shot for your literally creating a situation waxing the floor and having someone to run through the supermarket doing that just my father used to say I used to used to bemoan this. And he says, I don't know why complain he says it beats actually fighting crime. You know what I mean? If you've got a choice, would you rather? Go central. Centro with gang bangers or code lawfully. I'll now. Really i'll. But it's insane. And it also look, I don't look nothing's free this costs money. This this time and materials. Let's go take these guys in allocate them to something that serves the tax payers who are paying them. It's an insane. So so you want to talk about militaristic like we don't like the cops sort of militarising this very militaristic show force. Take a bunch of guys with assault weapons and send them to middle age actresses houses who would happily show up the following Tuesday. The court courthouse, right? They go and get a prescription for Xanax show up and self surrender. So the actual arrest is insane. And again, it's a show force. But it's a show force. Like, hey, I'm going to go to the park and or open a can of whoa. Pass on a nine year old filming. What was it? You. What does it make you a hero? Put on a windbreaker with a and have a logo on the back. So there's that. And then there is the million dollars. Now, where I don't understand what many I it makes absolutely no sense usually in federal court. You don't have a traditional bond. It's usually a signature on or you put up property if things like that. But I where is she going to go million dollars to get your kid into school? It was like you were trying to ship your kid off to the sore bone in Paris. You were trying to get your kid into U S C. Well, then also I like to put a moratorium on well, they're sending a message like your chance to send a message. As just your job is to understand the law and employ it not or deep Loy, but not send messages. Hey, you know, what I have to say about the once again invoke the old, man. He used to say you want to send a message just shows you how dated I say go to Western Union. But the idea that somehow somebody before they do something is going to sit down and say I'd like to research what the sentencing guidelines say on this, or what did bail about is if I get caught because some US attorney on the east coast decides he's going to roll the guy who's actually bribing the people to go roll down on the people who are giving him the money. So he can do the bribing the other version of that. But the feds will give the a deal to the Bank robber to get the getaway driver. I it's just it's wet exposures Laurie Laughlin half. I don't even know how they would calculate the sentencing guidelines that what are they going to say a bribery a theft a theft of. Honest serve. I can't even fathom. I guess it's wire fraud or some other it's always fraud and the wire fraud, the usually what they need is somebody wrote a check. So I suppose if somebody wrote a check to the guy who was wearing a wire who was doing the bribing that makes it a wire fraud, and they're doing an application to a school and that the application is phony. But it's really an attenuated theory that makes little or no sense. And if the schools are in on it, which they are by the way, anybody say the schools, don't do this is it's a joke the schools reserve, so many slots for people who contribute the schools reserve, so many slots for the sports people. They do I know for a fact having dealt with this for years that the sports scholarships are manipulated as well because of the title nine and having to give women scholarships. They play around with that the. Athletic department plays around with that they've been doing it for years. It's just it's the whole idea of, you know, it's interesting coming on the heels a year ago of this case where the of the NCAA was sued for not letting athletes get paid. It's all comes from that. It's the university's want to hold onto the money. It's just follow the money. What is your take on struck and page in a lot of the stuff that's been going on vis-a-vis? It's kinda the back lash if maybe the Russian collusion thing and the FIS warrants and Wyman. I want to talk about I would right after I tell you what truecar story I'm gonna talk about Manafort every car comes with its share of stories. That's actually true that ding in your bumper. I don't think about the thing in the bumper. When you nervously picked up your first date. I think about my mom's sixty nine Pontiac when I picked up my first date the luxury package, you got after a big promotion. Did you ever get a do you ever worked for somebody gain promotion round up? Okay. Or the or the mileage you saved by riding your bike all summer, I used to ride my bike repairs while you can't put a price tag on your stories now with truecar you can at least find out what your car's worth when it's time to sell or trade it in just go to truecar enter your license plate number. I love this and watch. How your car's details? Pop-up then answer a few questions navigation moon roof watches, they bump up your value.

You'll get a true cash offer sent in minutes, which you take to a local certified dealer cash out or trade in when you're ready to experience a better way to sell or trade in your car. Check out truecar today. True cash offer is not available in all areas. A Gary I'm going to have you do a little homework when we get in this Manafort thing. Yes, sir. Bambi? I don't know who was stabbed to death in her bedroom by an illegal alien who was like caught ten times and ice. They wouldn't they wouldn't they wouldn't inform ice. So we just walk every time. He he got like, I don't think arrested like ten separate times because we're in a sanctuary state that wouldn't inform ice and ice. Couldn't pick him up after they released from prison. And now he stabbed someone to death in their bedroom. I'm saying, Mark arrogance. When do you get to sue the state of California? I mean, if there was somebody who is here illegally and they're arrested multiple times. And you said all right now before we let him go. Let's let ice come in here and gathering up because we don't want this character in our land anymore and you declare yourself a sanctuary state. So you just let him out and not inform is and at some point. He was on top of your wife or your. Or your colleague stabbing her to death in their bedroom? At what point do you get to go after the state that decided not to have this guy picked up by ice. You know, it's there's there's been interesting cases. There was a case where the parole officer years ago missed somebody who'd been kidnapped and that they ended up settling that because they see it was negligence theory. There's also I think a argument that can be made in cases that have been brought when there is a a failure to notify a victim, for instance in. And that's why it's now in the constitution in California. So the victim has got a right to certain things you've got a right to know about the plea bargain, you may not be able to veto it. But you've got a right to know about it. So in certain areas, they've constructed something where somebody can be given. Notification interestingly that Epstein could scandal if you will that's in Florida, polka sell who was the lawyer is a professor at Utah who brought the original case had wettest app seen staff seen scandal was where he got a he was worked out a deal. Epstein was a hedge fund billionaire, and he got a deal where the feds to not prosecute. He was given a state court sentence. He did I think local jail and was given probation, although he's a registered sex offender. But that yeah. Like Jeffrey Epstein was given a year, I believe or. Months or something in a city jail not in a county jail. And I think it was a work furlough. But what they were what they were able to do is they they said, okay? There's a provision in the federal statutes where you have to notify the victim when some when you're cutting a deal of some kind. They did not do it. And the judge actually made a finding when they brought that motion that they had violated it. So you have to find some hook you have to find some obligation by them. So the parole officer who didn't do the checks or in this case, you did notify the victims you have to find some kind of a statutory or regulatory hook. Well, it seems to me that the state of California would be exposed had show some exposure legally, if you just said, we are not going to detain these. He was detained by ice nine times. And was convicted of ten crimes in the past three years, but they still wouldn't notify ice when they were letting him out there. He stabs somebody to death there. You would have if you filed a claim against whose custody, Gary Gary was it must have been a sheriff. Right. I'll let me look here. Okay. Hey, it's a sheriff. If it's a sheriff, and you filed the the notice of claim, and they denied it, then you would sue the share for not complying with the federal law that would be your hook to give you to get past the motion to dismiss because remember generally law enforcement, specifically and more public officials generally have qualified immunity. So the munity is are that you know, you can basically act and do your job, and nobody can just sue you willy nilly. All right. So Manafort, and then be Manafort, so is interesting to me. Remember, we talked about last time. He got forty seven months and people were up in arms, and I think we had talked about the fact just stay tuned for a you predicted. Yeah. I said just two for week. If you don't think this guy's going to get more time from judge Jackson down there in DC. You're you're delusional insurance. He got consecutive time. Meaning. She gave him time that he asked to serve after the time. He's already been sentenced. Right. So he's now I think we established last week. He's going to be seventy this year. He got seven years now how much of that seven years is he gonna do the judge is not supposed to calculate that in their head. But as a practical matter if he goes into what's called the are damp, program hill shave, two years off. So that seven will go down to five feel out of that five. He does eighty five percent. So you do the math there. And then whatever is remaining he can go into a halfway house presumably nine months before that's over. So he could conceivably still do all in those somewhere between three and four years. And then there's the discussion about Trump and a possible pardon. But if I say of New York state of New York has now come in. And that was am by the way, if you listen to reasonable doubt, you'd know all. Of this stuff was coming because right predicted almost a year ago when the attorney general came in the reason the attorney general's doing that is Muller because he had a fear that or Muller's team. Probably Weisman had a fear that there was going there. We're going to be pardoned. So the way they kind of checkmated that was bringing the then new York Attorney General that was before he had his s an scandal and have him joined the investigation. So as soon as Manafort gets sentenced, which he was then he's indicted by the New York, authorities state authorities any pardoned by Trump is not going to cover the state authorities unless you can make an argument that the conduct specifically in the state indictment is the same conduct. That was in the federal. And then there's an argument, and where are we with the struck in the page. Age and these guys are getting dragged out there getting to pose for lack of a better question by congress, and there's some discussion about the dossier and the Russian dossier, though, it's interesting, I think that the reason obviously one of the things you see now is that congress is is opened up all kinds of fronts on the investigations. But I think also there was something that was significant this past week. And I just mentioned Weizmann I forget his first name who's a career prosecutor in the department of Justice. He just left Muller's office and the special counsel that signals to me because he was one of the highest ranking lieutenants that signals to me that they're going to wrap up the report at some point very soon and send it over. I think you combine that with rod Rosenstein retiring as well or leaving this month. And I think that gives you all you need to know in terms of. Signposts that they're about to turn this report over to the attorney general what about any potential exposure for Loretta Lynch and people that on the Hillary side of the I don't think that they're going to give in touch that. I mean, they may have opened an investigation on that. But I don't think you get. I don't think that at this point. They're going to touch any of that. And you know, part of that is the name Andrew McCabe who's doing the circuit right now for his book. There is a I was surprised by the O G findings on McCabe and then him getting fired because there is a certain amount of protecting your own with there. There is a closing of ranks. And so I I never thought that you would see anything that would happen where they're going to take somebody who was already a high-ranking DOJ official. Do anything of any great moment with them firing them is punitive enough McCabe? You lose your. I mean, what was. A day or two days short of his vesting on his retirement. Yeah. But I'll bet you made more of his book than book and Vance everyone's selling the book. Yeah. Everybody's on the book. And you've got by the way, you've got not Taco Bell material out. I already rank right now jeeze, I don't know. I haven't looked in awhile. Where does he rank right now, I do know that? I think out of a check this morning. I think out of a hundred now sorry, I don't like two hundred and six reviews I had like one hundred eighty five stars. Well, I will take I saw some good stuff on Twitter about the excerpt of the material. Maybe it was. Specifically on being poor the that that that rant of yours was apparently epic. I was probably my top and row. Right. It was it was from what is can can you just high a little I was explaining that. I was very poor. When I was in my twenties. And and what we did is we we actually took my my social security statement. And I just went through year-by-year what what I'd make in. You know in nineteen eighty five I made like thirty two hundred dollars or something. And I said the joke was I was the guy at the supermarket who was saying to the manager. Is it just the top rummage through the have a bottom Rahman or you out of it because the top Rahman's a little rich for my. And there's another thing, right. Stock about. My my my family, and I was on TV and my family didn't have basic cable, and I say in how they didn't have basic cable. I said it's a bad sign when your family can't afford something that starts with the word, basic. Not a good sign. Laurie. Laughlin could afford. Shit. Get the basic of I I noticed that my cable and lock in Yatta. They've now removed HBO Cinemax which I find offensive. I did not know that. Yeah. To step. Maybe by dish one dish. Okay. WNYC in comedy, by the way. So says one sixteen in comedy at that comedies the most competitive though, right? I'll say, yes. Out of convenience. I I think it's true. I think comedy's most did you did you find out that story with the woman who was stabbed to death, and whatever. And look, I'm not Gary so Gary his father to be when is when did you become a father, August, August what the seventh right in the heart of the Corolla dark week? Yeah. Good timing. Perfect time. Do you make them kind of come backwards nine months and conceived during that period of time he didn't make me, but I understand it was probably in my best interest. That's another. That's what I call a good. Employees you. But where do you go August, seventh go someplace cool Laguna Seca? Yeah. I don't know. When it's I'm not the day main. That date is not an exact it's just sort of the range. But yeah, that's when I'm goes racing in summer. He goes up north. That's my my big trip is the big trip Tim this Sunday, which I can't make because I've been ordered as I was saying before we own here. I keep getting these welcome orders. Go here. Go there the right here the next day. But what is Sunday Sunday's not Taco Bell material and the CNN building which you knew very well and all the in a lounge there, and it's I think it's sold out. But I ran into your lovely wife when I was walking Phil and how come you walk filling? She does not walk Brady your jig. That's a good point. She was explaining that Brady has now mustered the courage mustered the courage to go down stairs. Yeah. Giglio Giglio would go down the stairs. Because before gigolo being a golden or whatever the hell he is. Is the stairs were a real problem for him for the first year of his life. I've been they really kind of scared. The stairs were real. And and Brady would look at him. Like, you are the dumbest, you know. Little brother. I've ever had. I oh, maybe they're not sold out. Anga says you can still get tickets. So I only how much I was I don't know twelve bucks. That's it cheaper than the movie. Whatever it is. I was I was walking. And then I ran into Paulette, and then Paul let's start showing me a favorite website about buying tile and assurance. Assurance traits better. You've me. I love that stuff. So you love that stuff. That's why she just adores you because she can talk about that stuff that we're my eyes glaze over and I started. Then Phil Phil's. You can't walk Phil stops. He starts Norton smelling stuff. He always not trained at all. And then she was explaining that Brady can go downstairs now. It's like we're talking about special needs. All right. A bribe the dog trainer to get the dog in the doggie college. She wanted to know how the new house was working out. And I said, you know, I could use your eyeballs because I'm I got some plans for the backyard, and I got some playing for the interior. So as she said she was coming to the show on Sunday so ever did tour I should want. You just come over a walk. If through the house take a look around, and then, you know. The show. That's a that's a dream are. But I don't understand do you. You had more houses in lock in Yatta than some than my Korean neighbors. Do you? You've got you've got the new one. Are you in the new one? Oh, yeah. Okay. What about the old one? I'm trying to sell it. Okay. What about the other one? Where my stockbroker used to live on. Berkshire. I don't know. I'm theoretically selling everything, but I'm not sure about that. I may I may hang onto that one. I'd love that piece of property. I know why I raise it because there's no neighbors relief. There's no neighbors, and it has a view, right. Oh, you're down in the neighborhood. It's like a mountainside view. It's really crazy. I like that property. I've always liked that going back to the sixties when Norbert wildlife there that was always a fascinating piece of property. You come and for some reason when you're on Berkshire. It's just it's probably something to do with the race car driver in you. And the wannabe racecar. Driving me you come around that turn. And it's just kind of a European feel right there. I agree. Well, it's also weird kind of castle thing on the corner. I love that castle thing though, I always wanted to I always wanted to live in that property living next to medieval times, so. Okay. So posted story. Sorry. The story of the guy who legal who's a pretty much flush it out. Yeah. He was an illegal. He's been arrested where nine or ten times, this isn't Santa Clara county so up near San Jose. That was where the victim lived. And that was where he had most recently been detained and Santa Clara county has a policy of knock cooperating with ice. So they weren't notified and given a chance to do something with this guy. And then he broke into a fifty two year old woman's house mother too and stabbed her to death. Okay. So now that would so I would assume that the person who was released and who's accused was in the Santa Clara county sheriff's custody. It sounds like it, and he is a Salvadorian. Citizen. Okay. So that would be the law would be that the feds had a detainers on him. And if there was a valid detainers by the feds, and the detainers, basically, the legal equivalent of a stop and hold and notify us, and if they ignored that then I think that how long ago did this take place this article about them finding the guy is from Tuesday of this week. So okay. So you have to under the applicable California law. You gotta file what's called nine ten a nine ten is with the municipality. They shorten up the statue of limitations. Normally it's either one year or two years you've got for various causes of action. But when you're suing a municipality, you have to do a what's called a nine ten so whoever the heirs are to this woman would have to file a nine ten. Which is a code section for the. Notifying the municipality that you're going to take an act, and if there was a valid detain her that that would be your hook that they didn't comply and that they did it purposefully. And that's how you would try to Pierce the qualified immunity. I hope they sue this shit. California. Fucking Gavin Newsom has said sleep out on the front yard because the family moves into the governor's mansion because I this is fucking insane. To me, this were sanctuary city sanctuary state. Look just figure out who's dangerous get them and get them out. What is this? I great. You're making a statement. I'm sure the woman on the wrong end of that knife laying in bed being stabbed to death was felt fantastic. That you're making a statement. I don't know what you're trying to avoid. I'm not for kicking in apartment doors rousting innocent hardworking, folks. But when guys that are ten time losers are getting out of the who scowl feel free to send a couple of guys with windbreakers over. And if you call that a slippery slope soapy it, well, this is the problem with immigration detainers has been around for so many years, and it makes absolutely no sense. And it's one of the reasons I that it's so frustrating to do criminal defense with somebody who's not a citizen because there really is no way to give anybody decent advice. And now within the last I don't know three four years. There's now a US supreme court case putting the onus on criminal defense lawyers for giving appropriate advice of the immigration law. And I you know, I there are very few. Immigration, lawyers in my humble opinion. That have a good handle on what's going on. I mean, first of all the problem with immigration laws. I is I've kind of stumbled into it is you've got this whole federal statutory scheme. And then you've got state court offenses because the low the large majority of criminal prosecutions of of of aliens or non-citizens is a in the state court. And so you've got federal courts interpreting the state court violations, which they never get. Right. I mean, so you're talking about aggravated felonies. Which are a lot of cases, there's nothing but misdemeanors, and you're talking about moral turpitude offenses with they're they're struggling with whether it's moral turpitude. It's a no brainer that it is or it isn't. And so you've got that disconnect. Then you've got the people were saying we're going to be a sanctuary city. And if they did it with this. This is the the parts of bugs me, if you did it because you had an ideological belief that there was something wrong as you said with knocking down the door to get some hard working guy who's a bus boy or waiter who's trying right? As opposed to currying favour with a demographic politically because that's who you want to vote for you. I think that's that is where you lose me. I don't think you should be able to pull somebody over in the car because they look Hispanic in assume that they're a non-citizen at the same time. If somebody's convicted of an enumerated offense than they've got to go into the system, and there has to be some kind of a system so that you can fight it. I mean, I'm all about fighting. If you're if you're somebody who's been convicted in the state court, and if you got your appropriate advice from your state court lawyer about the immigration consequences of your plea, which the supreme court has said US supreme court said an immigration defense lawyer asked to do then what's the point of giving advice to? Your client about whether to plead if it doesn't matter because the you've been declared a sanctuary city, it's going to be released anyways that makes sense. Yeah. But yes, I don't mean. But I mean, yeah. And could we have some nuance? Like, could you say, look, we don't want people kicking in doors of busboys that are here trying to make a better life for themselves. But if you got guys dangerous felon, and he's being released that guy we don't one in our country. So simply do it with that guy. But don't do what this guy. You can pull that off. Well, you know, if you've already got a numerator list under six six seven in some of the other code sections of serious felonies, violent felonies, we've already got a code section there. So if you're going to do it, why don't you say where you're not we're we'll be a sanctuary city for low level misdemeanors, non moral turpitude and non serious and violent felonies. I could see that. That's a rash to me. That's a rational thing. But to your point if we're going to say somebody's gotta do eighty five percent of their time or eighty percent of their time. If you're convicted of a serious or violent felony. But once you've done that time, you're free to go back out and not be turned over to the feds that seems to be a disconnect. I think you just call it common sense. Isn't it common sense? Like, look, let's put it this way. I don't know anybody who wants people who are accused of driving while Brown to be pulled over and rousted by the cops. I don't I'm not saying there's not a handful people maybe Ted Nugent does. But I know there's no cops that do the the of makes it easier to I don't know anybody who wants that. I also don't know anybody who doesn't want guys who've been arrested for violent crimes in different primes numerous times, not to be deported. So I have overwhelming majority on this side and on this side. So now, it's super easy to make the overwhelming majority of right thinking sort of sensible sane citizens vote, which is or at least agree on. Which is we don't want the innocent father of three. He's trying to make a better life for his family row. Didn't thrown out of the country. We do want the we do want Scarface over here grabbed and thrown back to El Salvador, whatever good now everyone agrees across the board. So that she'll be the new policy. Yeah. And you know, the the the way that the offenses are cherry picked for prosecution is a little frustrating as well. I have sorry. Go ahead. Yeah. I was just to say it's there's enough fault to go around because you see the feds the they prosecute. And why are they prosecuting visa fraud for somebody who came in on a NAFTA treaty? Right. Whereas they're not prosecuting or they're not prosecuting the authorities who are releasing a series of violent felon. It makes no sense. One more teaser for you to think about when I get into brother hair for a second. I your own mothership CNN is also being sued now buy yes, by guess who somebody we've talked about several. Times in the last three episodes Lynnwood. Yeah. Apparently all business, and I'm curious if you have any thoughts about CNN, he's going after the Washington Post, I think and he's now put CNN onto that, you know. I it's thought about this because I've been texting with Lynn all week. And I may see him next week, Gary, I should see if he'd phone and talk about the case, what do you think? Yeah. I'm trying to get on here. I would love that. Yeah. 'cause because Lynn is I I saw an interview with him. The guy who I used to deal with back in the nineties, Mark Levin. Okay, sir. Mark. I used to fight with the endlessly. Why Mark Mark was Mark. The Mark Levin of today. Bears little or no resemblance to the Mark Levin of the nineties. That's all I'll head of hair and six. It's a it was talking about that was then this is now was Mark Levin. Mark Levin or previous life was kind of a rabble rousing right wing provocateur much more different than the Mark Levin sitting there having rational conversations, at least seemingly rational conversations, he has now because I watched Lyndon sent me. And I watched a interview he did with Lynn, which I thought was really smart and really really engaging. And I before this lawsuit was filed as you know, I've talked about Lynn before because I've known him. He represented Gary Condit, and Gary Condit's wife twenty some odd years ago. Not you have a great deal of respect. I have a great deal of respect for my like him. I consider him a friend. And I think he's a great lawyer. I mean, he did the he represented the he made his bones. His kind of pivotal case was Richard jewel. The Olympic bombing. Right. Would he bring a case against CNN? If he didn't feel like he had a case against CNN, tease it. And then I'm going to tell you about that too. By the way, Mark Levin. All I know about Mark Levine's. I've never met him. I found out he was a huge crank Yankers fan. I can see that. And at some point, I call them to his radio show to talk to him about crank Yankers, and he should've just treated me. Like I called. I was just a caller on hold and got through to something. Like, he's like. Yeah. All right, anyway, I know tight of reinvented himself the last time, I you know, he's he was close back in the nineties. I don't know if they're still close last time. I was on Hannity Hannity off air had said, hey, how's your friend live in or is because back then that was when FOX was just starting up in the ninety s. All right. Well, you tell me about CNN, I'll tell you. I about brother Inc vestment tank. Printer at happens all of us right before a deadline or keep presentation of printer runs out of ink tired of the frequent expensive hassle of replacing in cartridges, actually, what did they do? What's the I'll let me tell you about this. They have an internal inks storage tank larger and cartridges intelligent page gauges spray ink levels. It'll change the way you think in the way ink their color inkjet all in one printers deliver convenience low cost per page affordability uninterrupted printing with up to two years of ink included in the box. That's impossible. Well for you. Yeah. Don't sweat over the printer running out of ink ever again. Learn more it change the way you Inc dot com. Changed away. You Inc dot com. So CNN let me tell you this. I was thinking about this this week. Because I had a case a couple of years ago where I had a widow whose husband had gone up on a airplane to survey some damage on a solar farm. He worked for a solar company and. The plane crashed. And he the widow and filed a worker's comp action. And I had a buddy of mine who asks that I file a lawsuit as well. So we filed a lawsuit and she had the parallel tracks. She was then offered in the workers comp situation a settlement which she wanted to. But I thought based on the lawn. She thought as well that the company should be held responsible. But and beyond kind of the paltry sum that you get it worth as Kohler company or the manufacturer their craft are these solar company because the aircraft. I don't think had any any insurances. I remember. But the the idea of sending this guy up into the plain to survey the damage was clearly outside of his job requirement and their cases the case laws unsettled on this. And I got they they wanted to sanction me in a federal judge ultimately did and I appeal it I was trying to. Push the law. I thought and I still believe fervently that that is I mean back then law school one of the professors. I had said the only way that you ever make any changes you push the law. That's one of the law is law whatever direction you want to push. And so I did that. And I thought it and I got sanctioned for the other firms legal fees because I had had the temerity to want the judge to make a decision on the merits not because of some technicality, so to speak, and then I was looking at at at the lawsuit here, and I was thinking to myself, you know, the the what a chilling effect. It would have if you couldn't press for redress because that's what he's trying to do. Well, it sorry. Just to set the table Sandman. It's the kid who was standing in front of the. In L, their native American and CNN sort of ran with it and look very bad. And there was lots of death threats and the kids could go to school, and blah, blah, blah, and appearing that it was sort of if not cooked due diligence was not done by CNN. And so he I'm sure I haven't talked to him about it. We'll ask him when we get him on. And it's hurting the attorney. I'm sure that it went through his mind will I get rule eleven sanctions because in federal court, if you bring something in the some federal judge wants to get off their docket and rule that you brought something that was frivolous or sanctionable. They'll sanction you hundreds of thousands of dollars. But the only way you ever pushed the law is to is depress it, and if you've got a good faith argument, I think that's horribly. I anti. It's anti what the law is supposed to be you're seeking redress. So he's got a kid. And I watched the interview and he talked about the kid who wants to be a lawyer this kid's reputation was scarred. Lynn was talking about the fact that when you Google this kid, that's the first thing that comes up that's gonna follow him in this day and age while you can prove damages easily right easily here, which I had with the with the solar company. They lost the breadwinner. He did a favor for the more. And the damage damages part is a layup. Now, the number will have to negotiate. But the damage is part is a layup. And and it's a big number because he's sixteen and God knows this gonna fall my whole life that part's easy now the negligence part, right, which is a liability. And that's what we say, you're focused on the liability. So should he push the envelope? I say absolutely should you get punished for that. But maybe. Why why do you get punished for that? Do you as the lawyer? That's the lawyer so damages on one side easily proven that's easy. Now, the next part that he's going to have to prove is that CNN. In wasn't a mistake. Now, they don't don't you. Tell me the can still look if CNN made a mistake and. And the young man had damage is then there's still a payday, but if CNN did something volition only, like if if they understood what they were doing essentially cooking the story and the out away. There was a if there was I'll give you another example leaving Neverland where I mean, if I wanted to I could sue because they cooked the the documentary to make it look Iraq talking about the kids that I wasn't talking about the kids. I was talking about them invading thirty Klein, if they if you could show something like that, you gotta wail of a case you've got. Because they should know better. And now there's a sort of malice and appointive part of this whole, then are you public figure not a public figure some people may remember that that's been a kind of New York Times versus Sullivan. It's always been a. Kind of a higher bar to protect the news media. So all right to CNN settle up. No, no. I can't imagine that they would settle to would. But if there is something that lawyer Lynne has like a document or a note or some Email or something that this usually what it is is a disgruntled reporter somebody that is says I was told to do this or to make it look like that. If there's some piece of information floating around that that's going to make CNN look, very bad. Then there would be a settlement. Yes. Yes. And I'll give you an example that I have something. I just read it yesterday. There's a Fox News reporter who had the reporting on the Karen McDougal stormy Daniels and was specifically told or that was deep sixth during the campaign prior. On the run up to twenty sixteen. And that reporter obviously is no longer there had an NDA they settled with that reporter. Now, the reporter has been subpoenaed by the house and is going to reveal that information. So take that set of facts if you had something similar where they said, wait a second here. If you play out the entire span of the video, you'll see that it isn't what we're trying to make it look like, and I was told don't do that. That's a whale of a case. I think it well, you certainly have the video and had Addison video so even in an app, even in absence of of giving someone marching orders to the negligence part of having the whole thing presumably looking at it and selectively editing it suggests a cooking or pushing Sanda that is exactly why love to talk to Lynn. I wanna see what Lynn has to say. Because he's. This is not a reckless human being there's a guy who's thoughtful, and he's successful. And if he's going to bring a case against look CNN's, not gonna shrink back from this wa- POS, not going to shrink back from this. And rightfully so. I mean, they've they've got their position I understand it. He's got his position. And certainly this kid is you say has got his he was you know, like a lot of people. He was caught in this kind of feeding frenzy that we have now. Right. And so I think I'll make a couple of statements won't wrap it up. We'll try to get Lynn on next week to call in number one number two. If CNN does settle it's safe to say that there is some memo internal something a marching order something that would look bad as a news organization that was supposed to approach everything in a sort of neutral position that was leaning this way or leaning that way and then that would damage. Reputation more than the payment would I think that a lot of times the reason that people settle before litigation gets really the far down the road is because of reputational concerns or they realize, oh, I got ahead of myself. Right. So all things to keep an eye on an interesting, and he's also going after Washington Post as well. So that'll be a very very interesting story to update you on. All right.

'Operation Varsity Blues': A college entrance bribery scheme

"From the newsroom of the Washington Post. Are you in? Washington Post posters. Lori art over. I'm MRs post reports, I'm Martine powers. It's Tuesday March twelve. Today. Dozens arrested in an alleged college admission scheme suicides in the parking lot, and the very particular rules for naming planetary bodies. Operation varsity, blues culminated early this morning when approximately three hundred special agents from the F B I and the IRS criminal investigations set out to arrest. Forty six individuals across the country for their roles in an international college, admissions, bribery and money laundering scam. On tuesday. The Justice department announced the end of year long investigation. We're talking about deception and fraud fake test scores fake credentials fake, photographs ribed. College officials. They were looking into a massive cheating and bribery scheme to get the kids of rich parents into College Central defendant in scheme Williams singer will plead guilty today to charges of racketeering conspiracy money laundering, conspiracy all told dozens of people were charged. They had charged a whole bunch of people fifty people in connection with what they say is the biggest college admission scam that the Justice department has ever charged Matt's Petoskey, a national security reporter cover the Justice department for the post, and he stopped by our studio to talk with us. Yeah. This is crazy after the Justice Department's world wind a press conference. So the US attorney in Boston and F B I official RS official kind of went out and described this massive scandal. It kind of centered around this one guy named Rick singer. Who was just a long time. College adviser, I guess is the best way to describe it. But he had relationships with college coaches like testing officials like SAT ACT type people Rick singer founded what he called a nonprofit this group called the key worldwide foundation. And you know, if you look on it on their website, it's stencils like a foundation that helps advance the interest of kids. Prosecutors say that was sort of all crap this nonprofit was essentially like a slush fund. So he would take in money from parents parents who wanted better test scores for their kids or who wanted. Their kids to be recruited. You know, air quotes as athletes, and who are the people who allegedly tried to get their kids into college in this way. Yes. So the two most interesting are Felicity Huffman, whose an actress and housewife from desperate housewives. I have to admit I haven't seen the show. But I am familiar with her in the name and Laurie Laughlin from full house. There is also the chairman of a big law firm other people who just had money. I mean, not names that anyone would recognize, but very wealthy people who had tens of thousands of dollars to throw around just so their kid could get thirty three on the ACT, and they would pay this guy. Rick singer to make things happen for them. Sometimes it was rigging kids test scores Laming by rigging and kids. So when you go and take a standardized test, you sort of go into a room. And there's a person who monitors you, and you fill it out, you turn into them, and it sort of a very secure process. But if you know all the players involved you can rig it in your favor. So this. Guy. Mr. singer new the testing officials the people who would sort of monitor you taking a test and making sure it was above board. So he would pay them to kind of look the other way. And he also had this person who he would pay while they were looking the other way to go in and like change kids answers. So if I were a kid who had rich parents who we were trying to get me into jail. Let's say I would go and take my test. And then either this guide Mr. singer had paid would sit in coach me about what to write while. Unofficial. Look the other way or I would sort of turn in my test, and he would go and correct my answers afterwards. And he did it just it's not like he had inside information about what the correct answers were the US attorney sort of described today. He was just a really smart guy who could get whatever score he wanted. And sometimes it would be like intentional missing. Because he was aiming for a score that wouldn't arouse suspicion. I wanna make to obviously sixteen hundred right? Maybe somewhere in the fourteen or fifteen right? So that's what I mean by rigging. It's essentially like having a guy. To either coach a kid through a task or to correct their answers when they're done wealthy. Parents paid singer about twenty five million dollars in total to guarantee their children's admission to elite schools including Yale Georgetown, Stanford University of southern California, the university of Texas UCLA and Wake Forest, and then what are some of the other crazy things that prosecutors are alleging the other kind of Wild Thing when you're applying to college, I didn't know this. But apparently when you're plying to college it can help you get in. If you're an athlete, I guess, I've broadly knew that. But not like if you're a star quarterback, it can just help you if you're being recruited as an athlete for the crew team the soccer team. Oh, a lesser known thing. So one of the things he would do is try to make kids who weren't athletes seem like, athletes and coaches to essentially, recruit, none athletes, pretending they were athletes. So he would have coaches again who are on the take he would pay bribes to them. And they would then say, oh, yes, I'm recruiting the student to be on the crew team or the, you know, the most notable example, I think in there as the soccer team, you'll soccer coach, I think admitted taking like a four hundred thousand dollar bribe four hundred thousand dollars, and they would say, yes, we're we're recruiting that person. Sometimes they would need proof of that. So Mr. singer or the parents would Photoshop pictures of their kids face on real athletes body, or they would in one instance. And I think this this might have been the case with Laughlin they sort of put their kid on a rowing machine because she was a stencil being recruited to participate in crew though. She didn't I mean, the thing of it is these people weren't actually athletes. It would just help them get in if they were perceived as athletes, so that's how Mr. singer would kind of help them. What happens when they got to college? And they were clearly not. Able to participate in this that they were recruited a great question. So sometimes apparently they would try a little while and quit sometimes they would fake an injury. And then they would be out of it. But they're still sort of in the door. Then the US attorney. I don't think described any case where the person just went on to actually be great athlete, but they would like find a reason pretty quickly to just get out of it. So what are the potential consequences for this prison? I mean, these people will go to prison, it's sort of interesting and almost funny, but the consequences for these peoples are to go to prison Rick singer is this afternoon expected to plead guilty he turned cooperator in the case. So he sort of flipped on all these parents who he helped, but though plead guilty to Iraq tearing charge, which is a very serious thing. And you know, these people face real criminal charges. This isn't like they're just sort of exposed embarrassed criminal charges that could result in prison time, and what happens to the kids. That's a great question. The US attorney was asked that at this. Press conference, and essentially he said that's up to the colleges. But this is recent he said that this investigation has disband about the only the past year and these kids are in colleges. I think it is important to note to the US attorney said that these colleges as institutions weren't in on it. This is not a situation that you sort of hear about like a parent donates building. And then they get in. This is like lower level people at the colleges coaches in one instance on athletes official or like standardized testing officials who aren't even really affiliated with the college. Where all in on it. They'll have a tough decision to make. I guess I mean, I don't know. And it doesn't seem like an all these instances the kids were in on it though. Maybe in some they were I was just sort of rereading the indictment before I came down here. And there was one where a mother wanted her son to take a test instead of this person who could take it and get any score. Just so he thought he was actually taking. A two in some instances. So in some instances, the kids aren't even in on. It is it really fair to rip them out of college. It's going to be a thorny or moral question for colleges, you mentioned the idea that that this isn't like paying money for building a university and getting your kid in that way. And that's what I find so ironic about this case is that there are already so many legal ways to get your kid into college. If you're rich you can give a big donation you can pay for private one on one teetering and that demonstrated that that will get your kid. A pretty good score. You can pay to have your kid play a sport, that's less competitive sport and get in with recruiters that way, you don't have to go this crazy way. And yet these people still allegedly found a really bizarre way of trying to get their kids into these fancy schools. Yeah, we were talking about that sort of as the news was breaking. I was talking with Devon Barrett. My colleague on the Justice department, and it's like why why would you do this? They have extremely wealthy. Parents one of them was like, the co-chairman of this huge law firm, you've got to celebrity actors, but you know, names that you just say anyone sort of knows why didn't you just donate a lot? You know, why are you paying this third party? And I don't know the answer to that. I haven't yet been able to talk to the celebrities or any of the parents who are involved about why to do this though just in talking with colleagues. I think the one difference is it's a little more of a guarantee the parents charged today despite already being able to give their children every legitimate advantage in college admissions game instead chose to corrupt an illegal manipulate the system for their benefit. There's some more guaranteed to getting that high score on the SAT lot more risk though, clearly to what's going to happen next in this case, the feds have a lot of evidence they had wiretaps they have this guy who was the center of it all who is now cooperated in presume. Ably shared all sorts of records. They have a mountain of evidence, you can sort of see why this would be so appetizing for the FBI for federal law enforcement. This is like a question of fundamental fairness. It's not like, oh, ha ha rich parents bribe and get their kids into school. There are victims here in the view of the FBI. And that's the kids who didn't get these spots at maybe rightfully they should have because kids whose parents had a lot of money did in the US attorney at this press conference made a point of that he said look every year hundreds of thousands of hardworking talented students strive for admission to elite schools and that system is a zero sum game for every student admitted through fraud. An honest genuinely talented student was rejected. We're not going to look the other way. Law enforcement. Of course looks for crimes there are crimes here. And that's why they have a hook recketeering on a services fraud, but there's also sort of a public interest, and you can see that that really moved the US attorney thinking about the kids who who didn't get in. Because these people who he said got in because of bribes dig it, but we'll see I mean now there's going to be a court battle big sprawling court battle involving a lot of parents who are accused of pain bribes, essentially, so their kids could go to college, and we'll see what happens. Matt's Petoskey reports on the Justice department for the post. Can we have you start by reading this Email? Good evening. I just finished. Reading your article about veterans committing suicide on hospital grounds. And I have a few experiences regarding one of the facilities. You mentioned. I'm in Iraq veteran and deployed to the flu. And during my tour I suffer from chronic PTSD to such a degree that just over a year ago item to suicide. How many emails like this? Did you get when the story was first posted online? I woke up the next morning to. Over thirty five emails and throughout the day. It was probably about four to five an hour. They continued for weeks even six weeks later, I still receive emails. I'm Emily wax tiptoe at I'm in national reporter last month. Emily published a story about a disturbing trend veterans taking their own lives on the grounds of veterans affairs, hospitals often in cars parked in the VA parking lot. And the goal of reporting was to figure out why the VA becomes symbol of the war that they fought the government that can't seem to help them the PTSD or the stuff that happened in Iraq or Afghanistan or previously that they're not getting the correct help for. So they often say even in suicide notes on YouTube, in some cases that they are doing this to draw attention to the problems inside the programs and the problem the larger problem of what they have been through. And they want people to hear it. So when they leave. Note saying I did this because the VA system failed me they want people to fix it. Veterans are significantly more likely than the general population to die by suicide, but to get help for PTSD and other mental health issues, they have to navigate the VA systems massive bureaucracy. And that can be frustrating in some cases, that's have to prove that their injuries are connected to their service, which can require a lot of paperwork and appeals, Emily. I heard about this issue of parking lot suicides several years ago from a whistle blower within the VA. And she struggled for a long time about how to report on it in some ways, you don't want people to read it and stay away from getting help on the other hand a lot of the families actually really wanted to talk which is counterintuitive. They felt so. Honored to be able to. Go over what? Lead their family member to this point and how to fix it. So a lot of the families were so. Brave and outspoken about what went wrong and what needed to happen. So that. This phenomenon doesn't keep happening. Listen to a hard job. One of those families that Emily spoke with was the family of a young man named John tombes who served in Afghanistan. His dad David said that when John got home. He struggled to reconcile his life over there with his life here. It was a opponent of something something bigger than sales. And so the camaraderie, the brotherhood. But when they come back, even though they still do drills once a month when he decided not to reenlist in two thousand fourteen I believe it was that's when he sees star to go down. He'll that's slowed a little bits taper. John like a lot of veterans returning home had a hard time transitioning. In the military. You share? Sleeping places you share meals. You have friends you can talk to about what's going on people understand. You don't have to explain to the Mary thing return home in. It's almost like you're on another planet never complained about it. Never had anything to say about it. It gets a lot of things he wouldn't somebody to openly discuss situations might affect my mother told him that he should apply beyond because. He would he would not talk about anything. John finally got into a residential treatment program at a VA facility in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, John was said to be someone who is really improving by one of the nurses who is working with him. But he was still struggling with PTSD and depression and anxiety. Sometimes he would have trouble getting out of bed in the morning. And he would be late you pick up his medications little things at once comb through all the records. He was never violet a ever duty body. Most everybody that I've talked to that has reached out since then said that, you know. He was would you the shirt off his bag? He was very thankful or friendly. But he had eased that. Like most people heavy medications days, and you just don't talk. Anybody? John was eventually kicked out of the program for relatively minor infractions, though were both school to the laws for the very reasons. He was there and that same morning the day before thanksgiving twenty sixteen he took his own life in an abandoned building on the grounds of the hospital. Diva tomb says that from everything that he's heard the program that John was in Tennessee has improved a lot since then, you know, kills me two sons bist form to do it. When Emily learned from her reporting is that some of these problems are not specific to the VA their problems with health care and mental health facilities in the US general. The environments are very sound ties. They're very cold. They have very strict rules. You're taking people who are at their lowest point, mentally and putting them into an atmosphere that may not be nurturing. For instance, in John tombes case, there was a nurse who had a suggestion to let the veterans keep clocks and have a coffee pot. So that when they were woken up for their medications at six AM. They would be able to then go back to sleep and collect their medications by nine AM. They weren't allowed to have clocks or phones in their rooms. And so that little switch can make the atmosphere better and John actually was late to his medication because he would just fall back sleep. So one reason can be as simple as the programs while they say they're trying to improve all the time. Veterans are the best people to ask. What they need to work on other times. The system is silver well-named both in the VA and in the private sector that records can be wrong that there's no follow ups made that there's confusion over whether the veteran has a gun in their car. That was the case with Justin Miller, he was a Marine Corps musician who took his own life outside of the Minneapolis department of veterans affairs hospital the access to firearms issues should have put a red flag on his file from the beginning. And for whatever reason it didn't the VA says that Justin's death was one of nineteen suicides that occurred on its campuses from October twenty seventeen to November twenty eighteen but some advocates say that that number is actually higher. Justin, sister, Alissa Harrington said that this wasn't the life that she expected for him. My brother was a very talented musician. And so when he was in high school, he was looking at the different things that he could do. And a recruiter approached him and said, you know, you can play in the military bands. He knew that he would be asked to do guard duty on base because that was his secondary MOS. So he he knew that was a possibility. But I don't think it was something that they had really talked about in in terms of what that meant fully is. It wasn't just him. It was the entire band who was going over there with the same secondary MOS of being basic unity. We'd hear the funny stories about how it's a slightly ridiculous idea to give a bunch of band. Geeks walkie talkies that had musical tones hundred number Pat because they would spend their days sending each other musical notes using the keypad, and then we would also hear stories about how he had to shoot people. Got a lot of emails about how veterans go to war. And they're often asked to do things that they regret or that. They feel morally confused about it's really tough to be a soldier and both men and women come back with high levels of PTSD and depression, and a lot of the emails detailed why they were suicidal and why they were trying so hard to get their mental health under control. There's also the trauma of senior friends get hurt or killed and just the trauma of being afraid all the time. David Hume said that once his son did open up at that PTSD force. We got in the program started on and more about PTSD and himself. He told me said, you know, sometimes t SDN so much of what happened to you is the end his opinion of constantly wondering what's getting ready to have? And we says that all of the veterans and families that she spoke with for her story and afterward. They said that they're glad that the VA is there. They just want the system to get better. It's important that we talk about it and important that we continue to have these conversations because without being honest about it without engaging everyone in the conversation. We can't come to good solutions. In the VA is a huge part of that. There is no desire for myself or my family to destroy the VA. We want the VA to be there as a public health portion as well. As a crisis intervention center of one of the things that the via needs to do is make sure that their staff is supported and paid entering. It's so hard for me to hear these stories from people who've worked at the VA about how unsupported they feel 'cause I know that this has nothing to do with the care of the providers. I know that the people who were caring for my brother were doing what they could with what they can. And that this likely is haunting them as much as it's haunting us. The VA has a new executive director for suicide prevention, and she said that the agency now trains parking lot attendants and patrols onto aside intervention. The agency is also expanding suicide prevention efforts and piloting a peer mentoring program. The Trump administration has said that preventing veteran suicide is its top priority. You can read Emily wax. Timid oh story on VA parking lot suicides at post reports dot com. Now, one more thing from science reporter, Sarah Kaplan, a story about celestial names. So last year scientists announced that they had detected twelve previously undiscovered moons orbiting around Jupiter. Most of them were pretty tiny hadn't been seen before the moons were discovered by astronomers associated with the Carnegie institution for science. And now that they've been found they need names. So the Carnegie institution of science sent out a press release saying that they need help. Finding names the asked people on Twitter and on social media to contribute, and I'm looking at this news release, and I'm like, that's cool. You get to name a new piece of real estate in the solar system. But then you see all of the rules for naming them a moon of Jupiter has to be named for a lover or offspring of God known as Jupiter or Seuss, depending on whether you're looking at can. Have any associated with any military or political or religious cannot be offensive to anyone can't be named for anybody champion name for somebody's retro program than any? That seems like a lot of rules just to come up with a name for the dinky little space rock, but Sarah says that this complicated system is there for a reason there are rules for naming basically everything in the solar system, and they come from the international astronomical union. It was founded in nineteen nineteen and previous to the people sort of just named stuff willy nilly, and so there were fights over whether or not your initial be named urine or George which was the king of England at the time that William Herschel discovered the planet. You know, multiple astronomers would say that they discovered the same asteroid each give it different names. And so when the I came about they're like, we need to bring some order to this chaos, and so they began establishing committees and working groups what scientists love best to sort of put things in order, and one of the roles of the working groups is to stop Bush, these imagine guidelines for different features and different planetary bodies. So for example on titan which is a moon of Saturn. There are mountains that are named for mountains on Middle Earth in the five of mount docked Lord saw secret lost ring. The magical landscape of the Lord of the rings books. Features on Venus are all named for women except for one which is named after the scientists whose discoveries were really important for our I observe Asians Venus, James clerk Maxwell. Asteroids are one of the few things in the solar system that can be named for living people. So there asteroids named for all four Beatles. Cross. All three Bronte sisters athletes musicians movie stars Tom Hanks asteroid there's a make Ryan astroid. I turn on my computer. So maybe they're sending emails to each other. So Sarah says that if you've got a name for one of many, new moons all you have to do is tweet your suggested name to at Jupiter lunacy. And you have to include the hashtag named sitters moons until Carney. Why you picked it? Thera- Kaplan is a science reporter for the post. And if you do decide to tweet a suggested name, remember that you have to make sure that your suggestion fits all of the requirements must be sixteen characters. Few can't be related to any kind of commercial can't be too similar. That's it. For today's episode post reports, I'm Martine powers. We'll be back tomorrow with more stories from the Washington Post.

Thank you, just you'll notice is spasmodic disfigured Neha right now during you talk about some Blair I wanted to share with you a little bit of my story. I was diagnosed in back of twenty thirteen the funny thing I remember is that after I got the news and left the doctor's office. I was sitting in my car just trying to let it sink in. I opened up Facebook. And the first thing I saw was opposed by end up. I couldn't tell she was saying, racial slur. Or was just horny vary. Funny. I opened up Facebook I saw post by him to. And it was a simple question asking what she was what was going on with everyone. This is why don't ask I made a comment that I was just ignored with them s she responded back, and there's a little exchange in words. Honestly can't remember anything that was said, but it will always remember that. There was the first person that I told on this episode that you spoke about some you at both spoke about. Quote is their medicine and stuff about people not being able to afford it all stuck accord with me simply because that very morning I had been on the phone with my specialty pharmacy specialty, and they were ready to ship me. My monthly supply injections at recently been forced to switch medicines. Because I started having severe reactions to my old medicine. So that was my first shipment of the new medicine. They inform me that after insurance. My co pay was going to be three thousand dollars co pay three thousand for one month of injections, and you have to inject it. This is what we face the citizens to not be on the necessary medicines. Because who the fuck and afford three thousand dollars a month? I certainly can't. She says when I wrote into the show it was because I'd gotten to keeping girl tattoos and twenty ten twenty eleven I shared my story about coming close to contemplate suicide, but it stopped those thoughts when I found you you helped remind me that there's always something to laugh about. That's why K A T. And him are on the risks. Of course, you can go to keep keeping dot com slash tattoos. And see those I read all that to express that through thick and thin. I've always got you in my heirs keeping me going and making me laugh. Thank you for everything. Happy fourteen years man, if he didn't give us a five star review fuck off. Audio sometimes go cheek. Here's what you do. If you're listening Huffman, or you're a lorry Laughlin, you somehow let it leak out that you get you've been giving money also to charities or to somebody who needs a medicine at three thousand dollars a month. Right. That's the way to play it. That's not beneath you, obviously. So put that out there. I'll like to combat the shit that you did. Yeah. That you're you're letting people who deserve to go to college. Not by you know, photo shopping your daughter's head on a professional rower. Right. Taking over there. PR's dealing. Yeah. Got it down. Like we. We know I gave to Harvard, but I also gave to this bitch with s. I really think I could. I'd be great PR person. Yeah. Yeah. I think so too Louis CK stop being so angry. It's off. It's weird. Next think he's listening right now, I can help I'm telling you actress, Laurie Laughlin and her social media influencers. Did anyone say nothing to Laughlin about yet? Like the post or something would even is nothing to Laughlin about this thinking offline to the daughter Livia Jade, gene, found themselves out of jobs. Laughlin fifty four was axed from longtime role as the face of the hallmark channel is she in the face. I guess so. That was a card. She had started numerous shows and movies since twenty thirteen Sephora announced it severing ties with the daughter nineteen with whom the cosmetics giant had partner to design a wildly popular twenty dollar makeup. Palette that sucks, honestly, they going to be. Okay. Are we going to be? Okay. I'm freaking I was looking to that palate. All the makeup. I wear like how the how the pallet right? I know who's gonna tell me. I mean where else in Sephora, am I gonna get blue? I shadow there's like no makeup. They're crazy. Just started. We have this pilot, sir. No, no, no, no, no. I went to Laughlin. I would like the nineteen year old pal alleviate, please after careful review. What do you do when you date somebody like that and influence her, but you got to like their dream seriously? Like, I don't know the cut you sit across at dinner just like you did the pallet. I mean, you know followers. It's worse when you're trying to date. An influence or wanna be who only gets forty lights on a photo. After careful review of recent developments. Sephora says we have made the decision to end a Sephora collection partnership with the Livia J defective immediately. I'll tell you what's affective immediately. When you made the decision you picked up the newspaper you went. Nope. Yeah. Kim from consideration. Yeah. I love how suddenly they are mean Joel's like, you know, what we looked into it for the first time ever don't attention to that. But yeah, it's like you employed, a nineteen year old to create some sort of brand. And now and now her mommy did something on cool that she's getting negative PR four. So you're taking the high road. Right. Oh, this time you're taking the high road. So I shouldn't put I shadow so I can look better. Right. The daughter did drop out of the university of southern California. Where of course, she wanted to for fucking ever want to the mom paid half a million dollars to get in. Maybe at best didn't though the mom did that and then put up this tweet on her influence or Instagram. Nineteen th and everyone that I can try balance all but I do the three of like game days partying. I don't really care about school as. Has he? After this game before the skull. But this is named as being nineteen years old. That's I think I quit college like maybe the year before that. Yeah. I think I was either eighteen or nineteen you're you're nineteen. So your your mom is the one that wanted you to do that you're already influenced or you probably have like a million followers. You have a deal with Sephora. And maybe a couple of other things. Why would you need college? Right. Why wouldn't you look forward to game days? You think other college students are like I can't wait until I learned the absolute thing that I do for the rest of my life, not many college kids your partying. Yeah. Yeah. You're lucky if you feel that way. But in your first year, you gain like ten twenty pounds, you sleep with the wrong, people you drink too much, you puff on the wrong things gusting? But this is four years. USC georgetown. I know not. Obviously got there. Somehow, even though we didn't know about the scandal at the time with your family being a millionaire because we're judging your stupid posts. And then and then to say, hey, I think I'm going to have to go different countries. I can't be there the first week school. But anyway, I'm there for partying. Anyway, I could see somebody being little bothered couple days later this, of course, still before the scandal. This is an August. She puts up this apology when she sees people are upset I rely on its Jade. I was not they also she's not qualified to speak to a million people. She didn't lead up to as a nineteen year old speaking to a public, which she's an influence, right? What does she influencing at nineteen influencing me to sleep with someone without a condom because don't worry he can pull out on time. Right. Trust me. I don't need someone to tell me to do that. I run. It's Jade, welcome back to my channel this video obviously looks really different. And it's just going to be really quick. Just the way she she did just wake up and she's still in bed. So when you hear this heartfelt apology just now she's leaning on her hand in on the bed. Give your best apology. So real guys. I'm looking around nobody blame but the woman in the mirror. Me. Yeah. I just wanna say something that's been on my mind a little bit since I posted my last video because even when I posted it I felt like a little weird. But then like seeing all the comments that confirmed that I should've felt a little weird posting it. And basically I said in that video like there was a question about college. And I said like, oh, I'm not excited to do the schoolwork. I wanna like party. I said something super ignorant and stupid vase. That's the guy in charge of this whole scam Williams singer. I thought that was great by what's the apology? It's not done it gets. But no that's ridiculous than your own. So I'm so glad we worked that out. No problem. But anyway, does this guy Williams singer? Does it go? What are you doing? What are you like, I'm sorry? I didn't think that I just wanna like party. I said something super ignorant and stupid, basically. And it totally came across that. I'm not grateful for college. I'm going to really nice school. And it just kind of made it seem like I don't care just want to brush it off. I'm just going to be successful on YouTube and not have to worry about school. And this what it seemed like didn't it. Yeah. But tell him that that could be a reality who gives a shit though. What is it? What is it? Okay. Is the reality. No, the rally is I don't care about school. I want to party what she's saying. So now, she's saying that's not true. No. That's true. Yeah. You're making say really nice school. And it just kind of made it seem like I don't care just want to brush it off. I'm just going to be successful on YouTube and not to worry about school. And I watch it back. And I read the comments, and I'm just really disappointed in myself. I'm not here to make excuses or whatever. And obviously, I could have done worse. But it's just annoying and frustrating to look on could shoot them worse. I guess because I'm not like that. And I just I didn't mean it that way. So I'm not trying to like come out here in defend myself or anything, but I just genuinely want Sam sorry for anyone. I've offended by saying that I know that it's a privilege, and it's a blessing, and I'm really grateful. I think a lot of people obviously like to attack me because I've grown up a different life. And again, that's not me. I see everything I say, I'm like walking on shells because I'm freaking out about something wrong. But so. On be real with you guys against a lot of people like to tack me for the way of grown up because it's really different from a lot of people. And so anything I say that even like remotely just ignorant or bratty or something that I genuinely don't mean it gets so much backlash and not I feel really really bad that even say stuff like that. 'cause I just don't mean to sound that way. And again, I just wanted to come on here. Sam really sorry to anyone. I founded by saying I wasn't excited to do like schoolwork and for anything else. I said that just made me sound kind of like an idiot. I hope that you guys accept my apology if I've heard like offended you, and yeah, I love you guys will be back tomorrow tomorrow. I don't know those fine. That's the speech. I give when I bomb. Every different upbringing. I don't think he comes off even worse. Interesting. I think she comes off for I think she comes off the same. She's nineteen years old. And we're hearing who many of her thoughts. Yeah. Yes. This is this once you up with time shut up five minute apology on you're an idiot. Hope she's not talking to you. That's first of all, you know, she is second bit of subscriber year. You're putting all those negative comments. Second. We did ask when we're putting we in this social situation people asked her to apologize. She's trying to figure out what she's trying to politics for she policies for the majority of it. Some of it is still a little ignorant, but this is more like what we used to talk to with our friends like oh shit. That was stupid of me to say, I'm not I don't think at nineteen years old. I was like, I don't understand my privilege. Well enough. I was like I was vegetarian for no reason. Like, you know, it's just I'm not calling like, she isn't adult. She is nineteen. She is responsible for the things that she saying, but for fuck sake, she's fucking nineteen shouldn't be listening to her this intently in criticizing her that much as a forty four nearly forty five year old. I think that's relevant. I think I think we need to expect nineteen year old nicer to are influencers people is pretty young. Yeah. And she's pretty young to be an influence or that is what's happening. There are some ten-year-old influencers. But. For fuck sake. Like, that's that's all right. When could I play clips in judge when she's thirty this this this we're gonna we're keeping an eye on her now when she is forty Claire is forty fair when she's four she's forty. Sure. Thank you. Yeah. You'll be dead. The mom MS Laughlin charged with mail fraud free on a million dollars bail. That's where it got bad. When you you're giving the money to a fake charity and not paying your taxes. And then the F B I literally shows up your house with guns drawn L because at that point, you're evading taxes, you yeah. Oh, there's a lot of like what I hear federal shit. Yes. What's exciting? That the FBI does do the overkill with guns drawn rappelling from helicopters, very excited could be a movie of her. I'd rather they didn't though because I do want to hear on tape. Felicity Huffman, going, you know, who I right, but now she's just busy. My daughter is. But the kid didn't know about it. Right. The kid didn't know. I don't think it matters. If it does the kid is not responsible for this. Because it's clearly the mom driving. Yeah. We and creating major issues for a nineteen year old. Yeah. I don't know. How you don't know though. I mean, if we're going to attend to kids, we're stupid who gives a shit then. Okay. But I think there's some kind of intelligence that tells you fourteen hundred on my SAT, and I didn't even try maybe I should take. None right. Don't take it again. Maybe that's how her whole life has been though, not trying and getting results. Yeah. She had six by her mom. I was literally sleeping taking the test. Like fourteen hundred can you get sixteen hundred. I'll try I'll try this time. That's the thing. Who knows what she thinks a fourteen hundred is she might she might have been getting these on her report card, but she gets a on these on her tests. But really obviously seeing as hasn't even look right, right? Yeah. So I'm the opposite of most people I test. Well. Yeah. Just stupid and everything. I mean, this is the weird kind of like, you know. Privileged money kids. Have it's weird because we have a hard time feeling bad for them. But they have a set of problems that we're never going to connect with.

Happy Hour: A Shot of Conversation

Mercurial Meltdown

"You're listening to happy hour show of conversation. It's officially happy hour. I'm so FIA Stanley joined by my fellow conversational mixologist. Hey, what's up everybody? I'm familiar is out this week, but you can still hit him on also shows. So this week has been one of those weeks where I almost feel like we are caught in the middle of a bad movie. And by that I mean. News recently broke that fifty individuals including Felicity Hoffman and Laurie Laughlin both famous actresses were arrested in a college bribery slash fraud scandal. Quickly. Summarize the facts of the incident. So. Powerful and wealthy. Parents bribed individuals to either take the SAT or ACT for their children and or falsify medical records. So that their children could take could take the test with extra time in an attempt to boost their scores, and or a Proctor who was also bribed would basically wink at them as to which answers are the correct answers. So that they could get a particular score. That's the first part. The second part is these children, then these parents bribed individuals at the actual schools, either administrators or coaches and basically got their kids in the a. Sports scholarship, despite the fact that the majority of these kids don't even play sports or are unqualified to play sports collegiate level in particular, Laurie Laughlin daughter got into UC on a rowing scholarship, despite the fact that she does not row. Took pictures of her own role machine submitted to the people that that school girl. But they that family. I'm Becky from full house contributed in. I'm doing air quotes. Close to four or five hundred thousand dollars to get her into USC. But this is my question. If you at that point half four hundred five hundred thousand dollars to get your children in school. Is it safe to say, they probably don't eat school? Okay. I don't eat this. If not only not only to say that they don't need school. Ironically, she supposedly is a social media star. And so on her social media platform while at school supposedly she claims he doesn't care about school. So here it is you actually have someone who not only arguably. Doesn't need to because arguably whatever it is that she wants to do they could fund it with a half a million dollars right number one. Number two. She already is a social media star making money number three. She actually is arguably taking up a spot that even she may not want to take. She don't even want to go. She doesn't even want to go and then also too. And this is the thing is this. This this weird. This upset me so much. I actually haven't been following the story. And the reason being is this speaks to arguably what a segment of the population has been saying has been going on. And it's an lately almost everything we've been saying that's going on in America. Now is basically like coming to like what what was once in the dark is now coming to light because. If fifty people have been arrested, Jill how many people are involved in something that said, they were eight eight hundred forty people kids who got into schools based on one of these these games. Just one of them. And it was the west coast gang completely. And what's what's worse is you would think that they would just bribe their way in that's not what they did. They they falsified scored they created false sports identities that didn't exist. So meaning to me it literally is like how deep does this go and to me, and I'm don't even know why I'm being unfiltered. It literally is like these mediocre people who we have been assigning excellent to that. Never deserved it to begin with. No. That's exactly what we're saying. It's to the point where we come on campus. We don't use us as come on campus. We are at school. We are in college with our peer students who give us the posture of I'm better than you. I worked harder. You must not have worked hard to get in here. So -firmative action, actually, your mom, actually pay. How come you're trying to make me feel inferior when I bust my ass and you fake fake photo shoot on a rowing machine. You've never wrote in your entire life. Okay. No, no. That's that's an excellent point. I'm going to bring up a share a personal story. So I think that everyone knows that I grew up in a all white town. I do not mean a predominantly white town. I mean, an all white town. So of my graduating class, I think of two hundred people there were only three black people who actually lived in the town, the other black people who I think probably were about eight other individuals were bussed in from the inner city. Okay. Specifically, I was of those three I was the only black student who had been there since. Kindergarten. Right. So meaning and my town is so small that for the majority of us. We knew each other because there's not that many elementary schools, and there's only one middle school that feeds into the same one high school. So meaning people knew me. Do you know wanna got time for school, and I've always been honors classes, I've always been in AP, I've always paid played sports excelled academically, and I told. Athletically, even so Michelle I was on academe decathlon, like do you know what I mean? Like, I'm one of those weirdos then in my life anyway, aren't right. And so it was so. Astonishing. How many of my friends were like, oh, you're only getting into school because you're black. It's not on the fucking smarter than you. And I've always been. Inlet? We also compare spores. But I'll tell you. Like, we don't get a -firmative action points on SAT scores. And the problem is is that I've been following an ancillary story that is not getting the coverage needs to get. There is a girl in Florida who improved how black girl in Florida who took her. I think either her ACT or SAT scores. Literally knock it the score that she wanted and she practiced and studied and practice into practice after practice test improved her score and they've withheld or score. 'cause she basically was like, oh, she's cheating. So literally, you have on ver- eight hundred rich students who score went up because they cheated and no one even thought she wanna even that's not why they were being investigated. It was an answer Larry criminal activity that basically highlighted to them to this criminal activity. So one thing about it one random girl, improves her score by four hundred point and automatically. She must be cheating because that's the only way that a black person could improve their. And the reason I bring this up is because there is a certain segment of this population. They just get away with everything. Not only do they get away with everything it teaches you don't have to work hard. All you have to do is before it enough to have rich parents who are going to bribe your way in. No, this this point. There was a woman a believe in Florida as well of some years ago, maybe five six years ago, maybe longer who got arrested and got sentenced because she wanted her kids to go to a better school. So she put somebody address. Okay, right. I'll show. Literally and just. Kid a better life exactly because they are because the way because. Geography. And also zoning also racism let those they'll be clear. Visit j place. Five hundred K tardily. We wanna let to live in people don't realize black people there were certain places we were not allowed to living there still neighborhood. And we and we get pulled over you. Are you kidding me still neighborhoods, and the and the and the reason I'm upset about this is because there is still an catch yourself watch. How you talk about the story visits criminal activity. We are like all my God. Can you believe they spent all this money? There's kind of a. A little bit too jovial with power talking about it. It's a little bit too comedic. We're lagging. And also to and I know y'all going to be like I'm extra on Xtra Eric Gardner sold untaxed cigarettes Montek cigarettes, and he died. They thought they had a right to choke him to death. These fuckers are involved in recketeering and fraud and bribery, twenty five million dollars to again to go back, and I'm dropping it back down to even simpler terms if you've got five hundred thousand dollars to get your kid in school, and she has a foul even if she does not have. Because they want everything. Waist. Okay. No school gives what I you ain't going to they won't. No, they want the brand name Branko everything. Everything networking, they want everything. They want the position they wanna be able to say, oh, my daughter goes to USC daughter wanna be able to be like, wow, I was USC graduate, right because one thing we do know regardless of race. They took somebody spot undeservingly they were unqualified to attend the schools period point blank. And it is obviously took someone spot, regardless of color, can I question. The what happened when they on the road team show about shape and Kane row like what what's the logistics behind? Do. They just cut you from. No, no, no. That literally can I mean, they don't even get to that point. They it's it's. They already ES you're already shaping even because even this is this is how and to me also to this is how blatant they were. And to me. This is shows you that they don't really give s it's literally like they would say that their son who's one hundred fifty pound in the linebacker. No one hundred fifty linebacker. You will punter. Let's at least make the lie believable. No. They didn't even have to because. No one's checking. 'cause the problem is no one's checking while unfortunately, us black and Brown kids at school. They check in our ideas, they making sure that that you have a right to be on campus. When the day we the easiest to identify. Let us try to apply and try to get on the rowing team crew team to our school. They act in our principal doing the background check. They call checking our as they making us do HIV. We get twenty four seven just to prove what we are already. Also. What's worse? Also too is. It's literally like, and this is also on a whole nother thing. It's like, so you're cool. Your kid just couldn't go to like not Georgetown, not Stanford. Like, let's be real because also too by the very nature of the school their high schools that they went to your retract ahead of everybody else because this we live. Okay. This is not a mayor talkers. Okay. So by virtue of you having money living in a certain place and being able to send your kids to certain school. Your kid already has basically a leg up, and there are certain schools feed into other school. So again, the the modicum of difference is literally the difference between your kid basic going to Yale versus your kid going to Brown. Boo. Did you? Did you get what it's not? It's not your kid not going to school. And it's also not your kid going to a a lesser tier school though. If you take the way if you take away the school that they were going to high school, they probably wanna know activities, they wouldn't student government. They didn't do she don't camp campus put on makeup look into Instagram videos, and their SAT scores probably will lower shit and their GPA. They probably had to seven so. Yeah, they get they back the lesser to your school at UC Irvine. Ooh, you're right or community. They go onto juke. Oh, so. Because they just can't. But it's gonna make a great movie. If you're still buzzing after our conversation, and you want to get in and give your two cents on this college bribery scandal. Make sure to hit us up at happy hour underscore, T V. So what is our second topic that we are going to throw into this? Cocktail today resi so whisper resumes book place for the okay, okay? See under Oklahoma City and has been very vocal over the years about fans being disrespectful during games. A lot of NBA players had specifically because he is one of the more vocal players on the court so fans feel like they can interact and engage with him in a different manner granted crazy interact with everybody in this ain't manner. But Russell has been the one who always addressed recently. He was at a game versus the Utah Jazz, which has notoriously been known as being one of the most racist and. Tension field places to play in the NBA. I believe and I'm not mistaking some years back when LaLa and Carmelo book when they were married the first time if if I'm not mistaken they read a jazz game. One of the fans guy got too much got too aggressive with her and she was about to walk up in the stands to the point where Carmelo was on his way walking up to the fan and try to handle it. So this is the thing especially there. But Russell Westbrook had a back and forth. The fan told him to get on your knees. Like you used to do or like, you usually do and Russell told him. I will fuck you and your wife up don't play with me caught it on camera different angles the fan after the game did an interview with some news station was like I said, nothing of the sort. I would never say something like that. But after investigation and cameras from different angles and witness statements. They did in fact find that the fan was. Doing the absolute most and got banned from the Utah Jazz games for life. Get yo ass out. Now, some people kind of mad at Russell Westbrook for the way he handled it up. Some people have been saying, you know, you should handle better thins are passionate. I'm so tired of this have they ever said that to a white person. But I'm so I'm so over this or we supposed to turn the other cheek we American we don't turn the other for nobody. We steady angry. We stay running. We stay. If I have the bigger step stick you pull out your stick. I'm pulling out my sticking on Bobby over the head before we even swing that. We are Americans and say you'll stick Bob you over the head which can act like it was stick the whole time the whole time. But somehow whenever it is black people, but specifically athletes we despite the fact that the game in itself and probably what the fan was yelling at him for was not being aggressive enough. Right. Because that's what they wanna see us do on the court, right? Is be aggressive and be fueled. But somehow, you think you finish say something to me where I feel threatened, and I don't have a right to defend myself. So I did it was verbally defend himself in the same modicum of force of verbal force that you gave me right? Because that's the only way that I'm telling you to stay down, mashed you Grishin to the point where the Twitter Twitter on it. They dug up some old tw-. From the fan. And he has he in fact the races. Of course, they've been saying faces things towards Russell Westbrook and other people for some time now, so, but you know, of course, we knew that. But this is a problem. Can I say something? Like, how these how are these individuals, obviously tweet about it and actually in public coming out of their mouth. But then when asked say nothing because. Just just just be like, I say what I say. Real still think you raise his cock sucker. But. Like, I said what I say. You know, what it is again because a lot of people that are not of color have not actually interacted with black people. The only people that they see are on TV, the only people that they see maybe one black person that they jobs, and they really don't know anybody of color, and when you assume now in in the age of of social media and camera phones in suing lawsuits, I that you if whatever I said, it is person I'm still coming off in the good because if you hit me, then I can sue you. So they're still eleven protection if they have without realizing, and this is the this is the problem with not knowing actual people of color or being around people in proximity. And I'm not saying all black people don't get them hands. However, if you ever had to have a friend that plays basketball on any level where it's whether it's college high school professional overseas. There is in football. It's there's a level of of aggression that you have to have when you are professional athlete of any kind there. The level of being able to be you, you you you you won't is what been asked then to what you think. Russell Westbrook from trying to me that somebody. That's his way out in Brussels. Even on the bottom about yes, he worked lawn. His way from the Baka in now is a millionaire with a beautiful family life, three key. Yeah. And you really think a man who did all that to get where he used today. Let you just come roll up on him and talk to you like he forgot where he came from. Exactly. Really? But this this is the irony. This is the irony of the situation is I don't even need to know where the fan is from. But if and I know that the way we say this all the time if Russell had come to his job and said what he said, he would a lost his mind. Would you also to? The fact that we. Y'all. You know, I love sports. But there is definitely because this is the thing is and someone should actually do someone who's like into social theory should do a study. They should do a study and audit. What fans say to white athletes, they say to blackout because I do not need to be a social data scientist to know that they do not speak to us the same. There is a modicum of to your point that we're not real different and distinct, then white athlete so to to to me, even the fact that he thinks that he has the right to speak directly to him is a problem to me. But let's take it out at in people think they got the right to speak to civilians like regular people. Because again, you got there's a certain type of person who feels like now, they can be at WalMart, and you wait in line. They can yell at you start Cussing because they don't like the way you look because again. Well, okay. Can I say now? Okay joke about this years ago. And it's part I'm taking one sittings out at a joke. We like we say we'd be we're gonna be. Okay. Well, this is things. Oh, can I say? You wanna watch because as the day, we under constant assault. Literally we have since day one been dying in the street from people like that. So if I feel unsafe as an American I have a right to defend myself. Better these people better. And especially I on when y'all it's it's mercury. We did this start. I look it up 'cause I'm feeling so you know, what I don't like t shirts that say, look, I'm not my ancestors. That she ancestors have been fighting. I stay one so don't ever motherfucking getting hit thing. We don't have. It's fucking gone. Thank you when we had gun the fucking law. So don't fuck in Testa push up against him of the fucking wall. Gear lying. I hate that show. Sunday and disrespect. They did nothing. They fucking. They can bled for us. That's. Now, Sean abridging literally dren their entire heads of think about these white adult screamed at children and threw at them. They were trying to go to school. You don't think that's an act of motherfucking bravery how brave you had to have been as a four year old a five year old as a parent to literally with solely because you wanted a better opportunity. And that's a different thing about it. We had to literally be killed to get a better education and these fuckers paying for it. And they don't even need it. I'm over this shit. I'm over this shit. Wrong. Oh, that's when you know that the shot is straight up with no chase. Well, we have the wrong bells. We fired up. We're here. We're fired up. So let's actually take it down and talk about something that is a little bit more enlightening because one of the things that we realize here at happy hour in order to be saying is it's kind of like work life balance. Right. Is that we cannot stay in the quagmire of this oppressive bullshit every once in a while we need to celebrate love. So J lo and a rod. Ron. So I think it was over the weekend. They were on vacation and a rod posted a picture of their hands together with her. I can't even call that had a rock J lo lizards. Asking for Sierras prayer wishy saying Iran Wilson would j Logan sand. 'cause J lo been scooping them up since back in the day. That's who we need to talk to thanks year. Had she had a sketchy past angling even name. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. J lo fits true both. She's only she's only kind of messed up. Once you could argue no-no, though, the first first one because you know, he was trying to tell their text sex tape. Honey, that's the only one right? Him been athletic. She had engaged. She married. Mark Anthony before then dancer, Chris, Chris Judd. Maybe Chris, hey, that's what we need to talk to y'all. See your been saying what jaylo been saying because she came by boat. Totally. They always wanna why don't they know? What should be the Mark Anthony left his wife that he married twice. Oh, no, he married. That woman twice. They got married. They got divorced. When word is they're not doors because he thought the J lo was available that was not the gays. He say. Hey, J lo was available and he divorces white. A Mary J lo wish she doing whatever it is. But no because okay. No, no, no. No, no. This is this is the irony. This is the this is the irony of all of her relationships her and Mark Anthony, actually where my favorite. No, they really were from like a coupling perspective. Like that that totally made sense to me because that was like music royalty within like that space. The only problem is like literally think he does not know how to be faithful. Like, I just I just don't think I think the problem with. Oh, well, then we'll we'll possibly. That's what makes him unfaithful because he has an altered state of being. Okay. However, I really from day one section at your. I was skeptical skeptical about her in a rod, and the only reason I was skeptical is I think it was at like one of the music awards shows. Do you remember when they're at a table, and I'm trying to think what award show it could have been. Maybe it was like the Golden Globes. A couple of years ago did migos. Perform basically short version there at a table migos performed and they're doing bad and boosy and she gets up and he's like getting in. He looked he looks at her life. What are you doing down? But in that moment, the camera pan to him and to me what I saw happen. He goes, oh, I'm dating jaylo like the facade of it, really halo. And I used to be a ride because remember may wrong J lo when he was retired. Now, we talk about peak a Ryan peak J lo when a rod and J lo got together. Yes, he looked at her. Like, I think it was I looked he looked at her like, oh damn dating J lo in damn I'm now the old era. Like, I'm not who. I know. Are you sure know, sharpen shoes sharp, but the old Iran could have sat in that posture like sit down and someone would have been like oh shit. I'm dating a ride. I get it. Uh-huh. Facts you hubby on the side back. Mr. pope is. So so I was to. But my Reno they were somewhere on the red carpet or something and someone was asking her a question, and he jumped in this was in a very beginning. And when I thought it I was like we have to do this. We doing that here. This if I'm if we are together, and you ask her a question, let her answer. But because again when you a ride he used to be able to do that and people leading in with you. I I think over time his posture has changed we've seen he kinda realise. Oh shit. I'm dating Jalen, and you wanna know why? And this is I think where I really liked this. This relationship is that I feel like they did two things that I think are always important relationship. You have to be true to yourself, and you have to own the good in the bed. So what that means is the best versions of yourself, duck and change it shit, some of the other stuff sometimes you have to tweak right for both of you. And then so I think what happened was he literally was like oh my God. I'm dave. J lo and that's why one today, I'm dating a fully realize independent woman singer actress mother phenomena, so that's what I was attracted to. Why would I want her to be anything less than that? Right. And then vice versa. And so what I think you're seeing is a softening from both of them. But what's allowing them to be the best versions of themselves? So now that kind of hesitation that I felt before a really don't feel it has he ever been married. Well, yeah, kids. Yes. Right. Lou. What was he married though? That is a very good question. I do not know the answer to my I'm going to try to look it up while I'm stalling has. I think we are matching equally yoked this couple matches. Agreed. They and I would've never even thought back into jail on day next. I wouldn't even have said, Iran. I would've said Derrick jeeter before a rot. Ho fact facts, you Geeta stay, but I like the couple I like pairing it I like the pairing of it. I just you know, it works in in it looks. They look good. And I'm all about the partnership. They can get a lot done together the same way her and like you say her and Mark Anthony got a lot done musically to head joint Abbas. They went on tour together. I think as a unit especially as a Latina. Greed. They can really position this union at putting at growing changed the game for Latinos completely sports on one hundred. No. Because I like, it's it's it's it's arguably it's beyond say, Jay Z esque. It is Jimmy mean an end literally also to just even just their blended family like love it. I'm so here for this. And please can the all televise a wedding or something or stream which they do something like that. I dunno. But I want to show, but no that's going to be a party Gersh. Oh, can we invite? I mean, I don't know just because we love y'all. Asher. Oh, gee. Oh, gee, you guys last call last call. I got nothing. Yeah. You're saying I'm so I'm so amped up. I think to I think make mercury in retrograde, and I'm an Aries so like that type of shit. I stay fired up. Oh, I actually do have something. I read something the other day, and this is so off topic. But it said something the effect of help everyone, but only lean into those who lean into you. Yeah. And the reason I bring that up is because of the change in seasons. A lot of us feel like we are in a transition period. And we're trying to figure out where to put our energy. So again help everyone but lean into people who lean into you. We'll sit for my last call.
