"An interesting team in fact jason's like oh who do. I knew who knows chemistry. Oh i know one of the worst kind of people ever. Let's go to the scarecrow growth. Okay the point. Is he what he's like. You can create a gas makes via you can evidently reverse the make you not afraid of anything so i i see his reasoning but still the fact that they let him in so easily was a little bit odd to me and my other. I actually wants to jump straight to this. How in the world was there. A lazarus pit in the of optimists. Cy and nobody knew this. Yeah or you know. the fact. That scare has a secret lab in arkham asylum. And it's totally unchecked. Like nobody comes here. This is where i come to jail. Nobody nobody that scarecrows missing from his cell in the secret lab that goes to from time to time. And there's a lazarus pit. He's got a record player in there. He's getting high into iron butterfly. While apparently meyer the lazarus pits. I'd like eight. Oh god to veto. I mean barrera barrera unless it was like a manhole cover over the lazarus pits. I don't know very weird. There would be a lazarus pit in the basement about assign them come on. What's his marijuana smell. Coming from the basement oh scarecrow. He's been he's blazing up in the in. The hanging up by the lazarus pit russell gould while he was in custody. I'm going to go to the lazarus pit. Nobody will know. Come on man supposedly. These things are natural but it just seems that. Oh they're just happens to a lazarus pit under arkham asylum okay. It seems rather comedian. Isn't it other than that. I do enjoy the mazda manipulations inches because we do get review of possibly what scares endgame will probably be i e create fear and panic throughout the city. Kind like the moon films and this case he's like we will emerge as the heroes..

"Beat me up in front of the front of molly. And he's angry about he snaps in molly and You know it just doesn't take it well so but but importantly this is the the event that actually gets him to reach out to ma to Leslie thompkins like bruce wants. Yes i mean. I think that where he is the event that makes him open up. More if you will because. I'm sure we'll be discussing the shortly. But i think that's kind of the gateway to wear his relationship with you will if you will with leslie starts and the heck. Even bruce oversee notes is the cuts on his on his cheek and oversee. Jason just muzak. I fell off my bike. I don't know how much much bruce buys. That's but 'cause my homework yeah. Yeah 'cause 'cause bruce thing kind of gives him that look of like really really whatever buddy telling you see. You can't be as batman. I'm sorry as many times if i've had my face bashed in. I know what a know. A fight looks like come on and not to mention. I said -tective okay. I figured it out. I mean if he can he if he is a to ascertain what he and leslie talked about. Obviously he's gonna no. That's a jason probably got into a scrap. Yeah i would say so. Definitely all right anything else about jason bruce molly we. I'm talking about no. I'm curious to see if we will see molly again because you know. She was seen briefly at the end of the episode. Why one way she'll be railway character. Heck she might be the one who turns jason around like remember who. You are jason. Simba remember who you are. Just waste. cnn. Yes we need james jones that preserve. They're doing this thing but no. I wonder whether i rather upset if she ended up being a throwaway character. Because i enjoyed what she ruled grumpy never heard of her but she might be that she would say that. That one is able to defeat will the scarecrows influence on jason. Make him go back on his. Have the hilton. Who knows but yeah maybe maybe that the very end you know when it's a key moment maybe dick brings her in. Who knows to snap jason out of his stupor. Perhaps we'll see we'll see but yeah just very interesting. We'll find out all right moving on in a kind of very related topic for what we just talked about about. Jason finally going to see lesley. Let's talk jason leslie topping number two so.

"But but it's it's obviously affects him but but right now jason is just very angry. And he's like he tells. Bruce look i'm gonna you're wrong about me and i'm gonna prove to you that you're wrong about me. It really made me made me think once again the whole concept of the family to where the older brother i e dick had everything kind of you know not handed to him but you know he was allowed to carry on and he was made. Bruce permissive with dick compared to jason. And maybe it's like the younger brother saying heck. I'm like the guy who has to have the secondhand stuff the my older brother used to wear. And i'm not allowed to do the same things you let him do this kind of thing so it was made me think. Oh you know you paid for his college. The guys doing this. Not just because i was born seconds and not giving me the same kind of treatment you gave to the firstborn if you will just because i stole the tires off of that mobile come on. Yeah so but that's what you you said that jason did bring this up to bruce and bruce is like look now. It's not that at all. I just you know i made mistakes with dick and i'm trying not to do that with you. Okay so jason's not really hearing that right now. So they're kind of there's a big communication problem going on and it's all stems from the fact that jason doesn't want to let go of robin and bruce wants to quit that's right and he's not gonna quit. I'm going to take it from him. Yeah it's it's literally a case of communication breakdown. This led zeppelin say. Yeah it is all right but as far as Bali apart from just learning about this character like we said she She does seem to be a really good relationship with jason. Like you mentioned. She seems to be one that they can talk openly with him and he's actually receptive to to that. But you know they she. I guess jason likes her because she's trying to help find kids that have been kidnapped that were told Like maybe you're being abducted by the joker. Perhaps so which i have. No i don't like the idea like okay. What does the joker want with kids. That's a little. that's a little unsettling. Yeah let's not go there. titans. I know you've got to be all edge lordy and everything but we don't need to make the joker into a child molester okay. Please loot his folks joker is not a pedophile. Come on now yeah. Let's just taking things way too far. Okay i mean if if he's just wanting to kill them that's one thing but That the implication there was a little disturbing to me unsettling. Apparently this guy named pete hawkins is who's been in and out of black data's trying to a duck this young girl and so somalian j. Confront this guy about the missing kids. And pete pulls a gun on jason which causes him to have these flashes it's very triggering and as a result He's not able to fight like he should be like. Jesus should be able to totally multiflora with this guy right. That's heartbeat like that. But because you know he's going through this. Ptsd he's off his game and as a result he gets the best of him beats him down. And you know threatens in and you know bali's they're begging like hey stop hitting him and you know jason courses like embarrassed by the whole thing like this.

"Lied the sermon. They'll start at like dc versus marvel debate on me. Alfons will probably hate this battle between them. You're going gonna have to kinda separate them bearing joe jail. Dc sucks no marvel sex now. Dc marvel sucks. Get over it guys. You know it's okay like both really all right. So trivia doctor leslie. Thompkins was created by writer. Dennis o'neil denny o'neil who recently passed. I'm sad to say and artist. Dick giordano and first appeared in detective volume one number four fifty seven way back in one thousand nine hundred seventy six where she was depicted as comforting the young bruce wayne on the night that his parents were murdered in what was originally known as park row. You know so. I know a lot of especially recent like batman adaptations have had gordon be the one comforting bruce after the murder of his parents are the no the movies. Yeah yeah exactly. But but then you neo black said back in the seventy sixers established leslie. Thompkins is doing that serving that role and inspired. She dedicated to helping slum kids avoid a life of crime so every year on the anniversary of his parents murder in this story less batman visits leslie in crime alley the former park row after because what was known as the the park row tragedy became crime alley as a result so yeah. The neighborhood took a little downturn enough to that slightly however had no idea that batman was the boy that she had helped decades. Before in in this story now later years leslie was portrayed as being a close friend of thomas wayne bruce's father and she also took it upon herself to help. Look after bruce. After the boy's parents were murdered often acting with alfred pennyworth as sort pseudo. Parental figure in guardian bruce. She also eventually. Of course learned that bruce was batman so and became a you know like an ally who like if people needed help batman would reach out to her in this in this clinic that she kept and or if like battle wounds treated you know right away she can help with that so pretty cool character you know. I think a lot of fans got to appreciate that character and gotham. Yeah i was gonna say granted you knew i comic wise i was more familiar with the silva. Heads leslie thompkins. And i'd mentioned the. I believe a surprise. When my favorite batman stories is no-man's-land and leslie thompkins has a huge rowing that managing the mash sector. Yes and that's one of my favorite favorite was..

"Tower once again ready to talk more titans or in this case a lot of batman with my wonderful co host. Wonderful fred and someone who just learned that he's an uncle to a couple of brand new kittens dj. Nick how're you doing nick. Charles thank you so much for that wonderful surprises. I will have to mention this listeners before we actually got to recording charles introduced me to two beautiful beautiful kitties honored to be concerned ankle. Do and i appreciate that very much. I could have said. I could be that godfather being italian. You know god spot. You're gonna both kittens and offer. They can't refuse. Is that what you're saying. Of course no the. I would treat them very very well. Anybody who does anything to them. I'll make an offer. They caught refused to the family. But i'm doing. I'm doing really really well and like you said today. It looks like it's going to be a lotta batman. This religion could have been a batman. Spinoff show at this point. I kinda love how titans it decided. Well season one and two haven't clicked the way we had hoped so. Let's just turn titans into a batman show and see if that works instead so at episode sixty two dog we were just discussing. Lazarus the fifth episode of titan season. Three hard to believe. We're already talking episode five and this came out just a couple of days ago on august. Twenty six twenty. Twenty one written by brian edward hill. Who is also a comics writer. He recently finished up a run. Batman the outsiders for dc and he wrote the previous episodes together asylum and bruce wayne from season to in this one was also directed by boris mortgage suss key and he directed previously the season two episode atonement so before we get everything else. Nick i have to know. What was your reaction this episode. Because essentially what this was was the much-needed back story of how jason todd died came back and created the red hood identity and hooked up with a scarecrow. Well if if i'm not mistaken chows this. We're already at the halfway mark here. Because i believe it's ten episodes for the season if memory six. It's thirteen okay. Okay patrol. i think is only going to be ten this year. Okay so his here. Here's my thought. I guess i'm enjoying it. This episode was good. because it's building the narrative gaps. I did have some problems towards the end. which will. i'm sure we'll probably get to the bottom. That's i enjoyed it. Maybe i you know as i often tend to bring up some folks been adobe upset that there was a lot of tool king and barely any action in this. Unless you count you know happens towards the end and some pieces here and there by think was very much needed. We got the introduction to a couple of cactus which. I'm sure you will enlighten us on hearing here shortly be i thought it was a pretty solid episode. All things considered. But but yeah i did. I didn't find myself kind of pulling some threads here. And there's where your wants to do when it comes to find as much as we love this show but no. I consider myself pretty satisfied on at this fifth episodes show. What were your thoughts. Well we're still looking for that. Perfect episode of titans fingers crossed. Maybe someday but this one it was definitely needed. There were a lot of questions that we had. There are boxes that need to be checked here and this episode definitely provided a lot of those answers to what we've been wondering. How did jason hook up. Why did jason betrayed. The batman. Secrets to the scarecrow things of that nature and the problem..

"When the olympics start will be the most talented team in tokyo. Hands down no question. Most talented team in tokyo with the roster that they have but this is like a five alarm fire right now howard. This loss to nigeria. I don't care if they win the rest of these pre olympic games which will take place through next sunday. This has to make you nervous if you're a fan of the team because not only is it this. The loss to nigeria. But you go back two years ago at the world championships where you had a us team. That was good. Didn't have probably better team now than they were back in two thousand nineteen but all nba players. They finished seventh. They've been seventh at the world championships. You have the seventh-place finish the loss of nigeria. How concerned are you howard beck about. Usa basketball. It's just an exhibition game. Chris oh no no. It's not just an exhibition game. Stop this team was thrown together over the last however many weeks they had what like three practices. I think i'll ever. Us team is thrown together. What are you talking about. There's no team. There's no no mid season practices for usa basketball. No but the nigerian team has been practicing. What i'm saying is some of the play in the nba though wants win the nba nba. A few of them play in the nba but that team has had time together more so than the team. Sorry brown coaching. that team. That i missed was that a facsimile of mike brown on the bench all season long. What what are we talking about. The warriors have been out for like two months kris k. Okay so two months. that's what matters. That's that's the number three three practices. Also they're still missing. I believe at least three guys because they're playing in the finals right now. Booker middleton chris paul get it. Yes not chris. Ball's not playing a holiday with the the what holland is your holiday. Those those guys will matter especially given that middleton and holiday are to the better perimeter defenders that that team. Usa has and if you look at the rest of team usa's roster. I don't see a ton of great defenders. There there are a few. I think those three guys by the way are going to be exhausted by the time they get to. They may well be. They may will be so. We're going to judge them. Judging when their whole judge when the games matter to strange to me like we don't judge nba teams based on the preseason but we judge team usa based on these exhibition games. That they do going into international competition. I feel like it's thirty. One point favorites. Why why is there betting line on a freaking exhibition better training but a little league baseball. Now country degenerates damn right. I didn't mean chris i'm with. Let's go monday. Nigeria money line. I just. I can't get too excited about this. If they lose the rest of the exhibitions does that mean something. Yeah that might be alarming if they're if they're still struggling to find some cohesion. That could be alarming. But i mean the talent is obviously their talent alone doesn't win on the international stage in style of game is different team ball matters. Shooting matters like yeah. There's a bunch of budget stuff that comes into play. But i i find the panic over this loss or at least the outcry to be a little bit much. So you don't take into account the seventh-place finish in two thousand nineteen. I mean that to me. It's the it's not just as game. The totality of it right. Like and i don't know howard like so in the early two thousands the world kind of caught up to the us ninety to ninety six thousand us. Gold maps then comes the two thousand two world championships in indianapolis and that's seven. The place finish was one of the worst worst outcomes in at least recent usa history. They got it together after that. They hired jerry colangelo. They bringing mike chef ski. They get their act together. Two thousand six two thousand eight then. They run off. Three consecutive years are three consecutive cycles of gold. Medals is argon. Made that like the world's caught up again that somewhere along the way and the last four or five years. The rest of the world has once again caught up usa basketball. I'm trying to understand this. I mean that's close games in those olympics cycles. No question about it. But i can't imagine the oh eight. Twelve or sixteen team losing nigeria. I can't exhibition or otherwise. I can't see it happening. No team and the and the one that followed it were built around like lebron koby. Carmelo enjoying wait. I mean that that groups at another level like as good as this group is that we're seeing right now as talented as they are after k. D. tatum's really good damian. Lillard is great. I mean come arbit- tatum. Bill lillard auto bio levin. Draymond dream ends up there in years but one has won some things. Jeremy grant jeremy grant zach living out of like. These are guys who have done anything in the nba yet. But they're all stars most they're they're also but are they to level of lebron kobe now but do you think is that what you're saying then is that what you're saying to be at the level you need to have like i'm saying the crop to win. I'm saying that if we're going to start comparing the twenty twenty one team to the twenty eight a two thousand eight two thousand twelve teams there is. There is not an equivalent right now. Lebron kobe laurent cobaine weight. And plus what we what. We called olympic. Mellow like carmelo. Didn't have the success in the nba. That some of his teammates did but carmelo in terms of talent level and certainly has resume like that group was at a whole other level. That group is a different level than jason. Tatum bam outta bios. Zach levine. Okay so not saying that you necessarily should have to have that level of time firepower to win an exhibition game against nigeria. Or anybody else. But i am saying comparing usa to itself different iterations of team usa. This one is not that one. This is not as dominant group as the ones we saw in eight and two thousand twelve. It just isn't what do you do like. What's the solution here. Like i mean i jerry. Colangelo deserves an enormous amount of credit for rebuilding that program when it was at. Its nadir mitra chefs. He comes in enormous amount of credit for what they did. But as we sit here in twenty twenty one like it's almost to me howard like the usa basketball rebuilding. The program became cool. Like lebron wanted to do it. Chris paul like dwayne wade. These guys wanted to do it and then they did it. And i think playing for usa basketball didn't become quite as cool as it was fifteen years ago. Like is that what has to happen like does not need to have like a fifth place finish in tokyo for all of a sudden the next generation of a-list stars wherever that may be in two thousand twenty four to come back into the mix and is that the only way this team can win. I mean i think we need to pay attention to the overall context like obviously one. These olympics were supposed to happen a year ago. They're delayed a year because of covid got durant out of it though like that right. It's questionable whether these the olympic should be happening at all still but along the way because of these back to back brutal seasons and everything else like team. Usa doesn't have james harden right now. Doesn't have anthony davis because of the injury doesn't have steph curry doesn't have kyrie irving doesn't have lebron kawai again. If your argument is that the second or third tier it sounds like sounds like insulting. Somehow but if you're saying that the next wave believe after those guys should still be good enough to dominate on the world stage. Maybe but if the point is that the team as best are they still. Are they still able to win. Gold fairly easily. Your probably but a bunch of them aren't on this team right now because of injuries and just the stress of the last year or two so this this is not necessarily representative of the best of the best right now. It just isn't and yes. They should still be good enough to win. Yes the world has caught up to some extent. No the the group that at nigeria's put it put out there last week. Does not leap off the page improbably. Us should've still want it. But again i exhibition game after like three practices. Let's see what happens with the rest of this. This schedule out brought mellow back. I mean he's not what he was four years ago. Eight years ago twelve years ago but the guy knows how to play international basketball. He might have sat. maybe. I guess. I didn't really. I assume that he just want to keep. He didn't kind of like four formerly re retire from the olympics. But it'd be pretty much says like i'm done like lebron kinda did to get talked into it. I feel like. I don't know if i was if i was the usa team would try really hard to get carmelo blake because his style. Whatever it is to the nba is perfect for the national basketball. He's a really good or national basketball player. On this subject damian lillard. He spoke for the first time. Since the hiring of chauncey billips. Only listen to what little had to say about his future in portland. I'm prepared to go in and do my job every year. Like hopefully we make strides over direction and could become a better team a new coach notice. That's where i am. What soured it sounds like. Lillard is at least nominally on board with going back to the blazers. But if i'm a team out there with assets. I don't listen to that response and say well it's over damian. Lillard is back on the same page with the portland trailblazers. If i'm a team with assets i hold onto those assets because it feels to me like the blazers might be one like sixteen to start from blowing that whole thing up with louis mccollum on the way out the door so get the sense now. That seems more likely than not that damian lillard at blazers training camp. He's in ablaze uniform. He starts the season with the portland trailblazers. But if it doesn't work with chauncey billips early and you get close that trade deadline. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see portland decide. Look we've got a. We've got to do something here and opened the door for damian lillard trade. What do you think. I think that nothing has changed. I think that his remarks last week because he sounded a little bit lukewarm. Or just you know you hear one of two things. Well you want to hear one thing if you're a portland trail blazers fan or if you're just looking for any indication that lillard is all in your you want to hear him say listen. I know things are rough right now. But i'm all in you know this is. This is where. I want to be you to repeat all the usual talking points that you hear from players in his position and that we've heard from bradley beal that we used to hear from james harden houston. Which is a win in phil in city fill in the blank with the city. I want to win here. I don't wanna go somewhere else. You know we're going to get this right blah blah. He didn't go down the usual list. And so i think it left open. Some interpretation but getting has changed like the disappointment was clear when the season ended. Some of the things have happened since including obviously the the the train wreck away they went about the the coaching search and lillard. Being caught in the crossfire. There at feeling heat from fans about chauncey billips being selected and so. I don't think we should expect he's going to be rah. Rah right now The trailblazers have a lot of work to do. But we also have not even hit the summer yet. Like there's the draft hasn't happened yet. Free agency hasn't happened yet. There's there's a lot of work to be done. And i think if you're damian lillard which you're probably doing is internally saying here's what i need to see happen externally saying you know what let's let's wait and see i mean you see. He can't he can't say publicly the same things that he's telling say neal o'shea right about what the the state of the roster i i would think that there are some very impassioned debates or discussions being held behind closed doors about what they need to get this thing right and if they can't get it right the he might shift is his stance about staying there long term. But that hasn't happened yet that we know of. What do you think the most interesting potential conversation is amongst players over these next four weeks like i'm kind of curious what jason tatum bradley beal talk about. Tatum and beal close friends dating back to their highschool days both went to the same high school bill with something of a mentor to jason. Tatum actually got him involved with his trainer. Drew hanlin which helped. Tatum elevate his his personal skills and they've talked about how happy they are to be playing together. Played the all star game together for the first time beal last year of his contract. Like you know we've seen these conversations yield real tangible conversation. You'd like to be a fly on the wall on for any of these guys in the next couple of weeks. Yeah i mean look we. We have a history now going back over a decade. If we're to believe that the that the heels were formed in part through team usa activities. You know which is true which is true. That's that's yielded an extra things guy. You know guys who you mentioned. Tatum and bill because they were already friends but guys also become friends through this experience right and then they start getting the ideas about playing together. Like oh hey. This is a lot of fun. Let's do this again in the nba. So there's i'm i'm sure some of that is is happening. It always does. Who else in that group. I mean man. If any of these guys that'd be trying to recruit bam out a bio but he's too early in his in his contract with miami to pry him loose from there And you know the heater still a pretty potent team but you know jimmy butler is up there in miles and outta bios future won't necessarily be there forever. That's the way it goes in the nba. I think tatum has the potential to be like the biggest recruiter. They're like he's about to start the first year of his max level extension. He can recruit bill. But like you can also does damian lillard like. It's great to play in boston. I love it here. Answer some questions of my have a playing on the east coast for the first time. Like i think data might be boston's best asset at this point. Yeah again some of this comes down to bradley. Beal's coming up to that point where he has the leverage to task out because of his contract lillard under contract for several more years and so he's not in that position. So what if it says. Like i need to go like. I don't foresee the blazers being no finish your contract. Just don't see it. i think right. And they would work with him on a deal to sure but directing it is harder so beal can use the leverage of his free agency to say well if you send me to team x. I'm not gonna resign there. Which then blows up that deal and he can direct himself to the team he really wants to be at lillard would have a harder time to doing that. Because he doesn't have free agency looming two to play that card. Yeah well i encourage any reporter. That's in tokyo tatum. Beal and lillard talking to each other. Just take a picture and then let the internet go wild crazy because it will unquestionably last thing for you. Howard the breaking news. This week in the coaching ranks. Is that jamal moseley is headed to orlando moseley of course last with dallas. A really well respected assistant coach there. Who was a candidate for that. Maverick job before. It went to jason kidd my immediate reaction to that higher howard beyond i think being an excellent choice for orlando is that we're gonna look at at moseley and jason kidd on parallel tracks. The next couple of years moseley. There was a strong case to be made that he should have been elevated to that head. Coaching job he'd been considered for other head coaching jobs. Before most recently in new york he had by all accounts a great relationship with luka doncic i understand bringing kit in he's got a history with dallas and as riccar lau said publicly having a player that played the game like kid and having a player that plays the game like don-shik make some sense to pair those two guys together. But there's always going to be as i watched these two situations unfold. I'm gonna wonder you know. Did the mavericks make the right choice. Leading jamaa moseley go and bringing jason kidd in and there's so many variables in this the first being at orlando's in step one or maybe even steps zero of a massive rebuild right there in the negatives right now. I think there's still maybe more fat to trim on that roster before they really bottom out. Yeah and you know you talk about trying to build around. You know markelle foltz. And and jonathan isaac jonathan isaac for so long. They're getting hurt and he's a great player but they've loved writing in a weird way john stays healthy. He's still more of a complementary store right like he's he's a potentially defensive player of the year at some point. He's not a guy who you're building an offense around though and marquel foltz okay. He he got himself back on track in orlando. He has a career now where he didn't have one but he's not a foundational building block. Come on like that's crazy so the roster doesn't have much talent jamal. Moseley's is coming into a situation. Which a lot of first time head coach is committed to which is all right. There's a lot of work to do so You're gonna have to do a lot of development. You're going to have to take a lotta lumps in the win loss column. It's gonna be rough going for the first year or two or maybe three. Let's see how they can get things going. But you know as it has been a certain other like kenny. Atkinson came to look a completely hopeless situation in brooklyn but was known as development coach in atlanta. And sure enough. Everybody who went there. Joe harris spencer. Dinwiddie jared allen versus lower. First round picks. Guys who were you know whether they were reclamation projects whether they were low picks everybody seems to get better the second they went to brooklyn and play kenny atkinson and his staff congenial. Moseley have the kind of effect in orlando can the front office. Get him to kind of guys. That will thrive in that in that kind of environment and carve out careers from cells and carbon identities. Jamal moseley has a lot going for him. And we've heard like many great things about it but we often hear great things about assistant coaches who don't end up panning out so i always. We have to caution ourselves on these things. Because i thought. Brian shaw was gonna be a great head coach and he was. Everybody loved him all the players sung as praises when he was associate head coach under frank. Vogel indiana he goes to denver probably just the wrong guy at the wrong time but he hasn't had another shot since then but that went really badly. Brett brown was really great in in some respects for the for the early years of the process and then suddenly. It seemed like they'd hit some sort of ceiling. Eager kokoschka of had been talked about for years is a great assistant. Coach didn't work out. Swells head coach in phoenix. David dale bumpy ride in memphis and then disastrous in new york. We just don't know like luke walton. Another example like there are plenty of coaches who as their when their assistance. We hear and see the best of them and then you know some of them be go on it and have great success coaches. I mean tyler has been fantastic. Mike malone has been fantastic money williams. Nick nurse dwayne casey a lotta longtime assistance. Get their shot and then you know it. It works out in a dozen. It's all contextual. It's all just the opportunity you have the thing for dallas is. They went with a guy who has experienced jason kit. That experience was not necessarily good experience. Like i think most people around the would look at what he did in milwaukee in brooklyn and say. I'm going to steer clear. Maybe you'd rather have the the unproven. Jamal moseley versus the somewhat proven jason kidd but. I don't think we'll know what the right choice was there for a while yet. Because it's it's gonna take some time before we can evaluate moseley as head coach. I maybe jason kidd learned something in two years as an assistant. I mean that happens. You know working with lebron for entire for two entire seasons working under frank vogel maybe picked up some things that'll be useful to him as a head coach. Moseley to me. The key is giving him time. Like you've got to be committed to moseley for a minimum. I think of three years and more likely five years. And then you see what you have in head coach. You mentioned gore. I mean it's worked out for phoenix. Absolutely but i do think he got hosed out there i mean he only had one year on the job and that year was without deandra aiden chris. Paul had devon booker of course but that was not a good team that he was coaching. There i gotta get moses the because you want to see what the guy can do when you put that team in a position to win a great example to me is james breglio in charlotte. I mean berea. Was one of those guys assistant coach elevated to head coaching position in charlotte. Not great first couple of years there but when he was given players and chance to win he did pretty well. I mean up until lamelo ball went out the horns were really good team and i think they will be a good team. Going forward in part because of the borrego is a pretty good coach. I want to see this magic team. Invest heavily in jamal. The you're the guy developed these guys and we'll keep you around no matter what the won loss record says until you get a chance to win then you judge like brett brown six or seven days since brett brown left but i can see the for letting go of brett brown. I mean they had a talented team and to a degree the underachieved. But you've got to let the coach get a roster on that level before you really make any decisions about whether they can coach. Yeah well and that's the thing about. This is what set up says apart. I think the good organizations from the bad ones is that you you decide when you choose a guy. Especially if he's a longtime assistant not a guy with head coaching experience. And you've said we believe in this guy. This is somebody who's got a great trekker record as an assistant. We're going to first opportunity. It's your obligation to when you say investment. Yeah it's time investment. It's a give them all the tools to succeed. Give him the time to succeed. You've decided you believe in him. So stand behind that have the conviction to stand behind that and take some bumps along the way you know maybe maybe memphis and or the knicks should have stuck with david physed longer. You know we had heard nothing but great things about fiscal coming out of miami. Initially we may yet you know. Find out that he. He can be great head coach in the right situation. Maybe those worth rights situations. He might be one of those guys though. I love physios and assist one of those guys. Though the just the temperament is always important. Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and understanding the mindfulness athlete I've seen it from a pro level. Got up tune into play thirteen years with twelve different teams so i understand like the different trials and tribulations you go through with a player not saying that these players are gonna go through that but is getting them more prepared if they do come into some certain situations where it's not typically going the right way. How can they manage that situation. So what they do today can echo into tomorrow and having the ability to kana paint on a black blank. Canvas is what a really attracted to me to to this you know. Ot league program we can take the player really shape the curriculum you not with teaching them about subjects. But we're really teaching them about themselves as well from media training From mental health issues. All the different things that come involved because we all know chris is stress. You know from success is a lot of pressures is a lot of people pulling at you. It's a lot of people won't certain things. But how do you deal with that from a player's standpoint where you can play when you get on the basketball court and half clear and not be caught up in the distractions of off the court issues. Um as desks desks were really kind of vocal. Spirit to give back in it and how these kids you know. Have these players be available at the moment of truth to make the right decisions and that was very important to me. Kevin as you mentioned you played in the nba brand. You played in the nba. As well i wanna ask both of you guys and kevin. I'll start with you like if this was available to you as sixteen. seventeen year. Old looking back. Would you have founded attractive with a definitely founded attractive You know i kind of thought the box anyway. I was from chris. Shaw from from from south central and i chose connecticut. So you places that. I didn't even know nothing about growing up. You always thought out the box and never wanted to go down a path that everybody was going down So i was always curious. And i think that's how my mom especially my mom. My dad raised me. So i definitely been curious of this situation. No no speaking now without you know took it. I'm not sure. But i think it really gave me another option to look at it and this is what we're trying to do not saying that the ncaa is wrong overtime. Leaders wrong or right. It's not about that. It's about if you really care about the student. Athletes you give them as much options as possible. And i think this gives the lee student athlete. Another option and i think you know it's a very Great option for them to have and if they choose overtime league we're going to give our whole heart to make sure they're developed on and off the basketball court chris i- jumping after coach It would have been interesting. Chris but i certainly would not have been a candidate i would. Let's just get that right. What what things that's important. We sit down going through just grassroots community and we spent months just talking to people educating about. You know what we're about who we are. Each of us has a reputation in some other space. Not here The this program isn't for everybody is not the right fit for everybody. We are cherry picking and a lot of ways. These are players that feel like they are destined for professional basketball. There are a lot of sixteen year olds. That don't know that yet and their parents aren't convinced that yet in people that support them. Don't don't feel that confidence yet. They may be another year away or two years away but this is not. This is not the right path for everyone. Twenty four athletes roughly twelve per class. We're looking at juniors and seniors and the truth is at this age. What was really funny about scouting them is everybody's skinny and like a lanky and underdeveloped and still has like a mountain of upside to you know to to get through before you can really see who they're going to be but you know if you have a young player like brand williams who's just dreaming of being an nba player but does not much certainty. That's even realistic We gotta be very careful about this approach In taking because there there are risks but for those that that have already established in this deke. They've established a day of separated from their class. You know jaylen. Lewis has an example the most recent example. He's he's he's elevated in separate. The draft isn't tomorrow though so there's still a lot of work to do but he's already in front running physician and it gives everyone low confidence that this is the kind of investment and the kind of pet that would make a ton of sense for players like that. Let me follow up on that brandon. Because you're you're entering. What suddenly become a fairly crowded space in terms of leagues like this. You know the g. league ignite is one season in but they've had a measure of success. We've seen jalen green probably a top pick. Jonathan kamenga top five or six. Then you have the ncw with this. Recent ruling allowing top players to make money off their name image and likeness. How does how does the elite separate itself from that group. Why think i is. We start a little bit sooner so the g. league zone a great job with what we call it a year the prep year that year. That a recent graduates would be going to college and they've already been hacking the system you know going to italy or china So so there's a market for those players and we want an alternative to college for for for us though. Our players are seeking an alternative to high school so we are a school but we think about the resources that were bringing to the table first of which being an nba like environment You know start coach. Ali coach lehto in a robust set of staff. I mean scouting staff a high performance staff administrative team. Our goal was to simulate an nba organization for for young athletes at sixteen seventeen eighteen. Th there there is no other environment. Like that. And i think the big way that we separate with high school athletes Is that both domestically and internationally. We're able to put twenty four of them together in a building. So what we're selling is the best competition for these guys starts at home. I mean every day in line coaches don't minister drills administer competition aspects of practice and getting ready for games but when you look to the right and left and i noticed as a player. There's no weak link. I mean everywhere you look. There's somebody that's doing what you're doing and possibly doing more. Because they they are not just dreamed about the into the league or to the high level. They're on their way there That's where we've been able to. I think create a little separation from others that have tried or looked at something. Like this kevin. How do you approach this job. Do you do it in a similar mindset and you had at uconn where you have young players you also you know yukon. You had to keep them academically eligible you to follow that pretty closely. I mean is there is it a similar mindset or do you take a different tact. I think you just let it be you know. Similar is not. It's just whatever comes you say yes to it and you cultivate hope from it I never coached high school players. They was always you know graduated from high school. And now they're freshman's This situation is a little different in in was recruiting for two to three years. This situation is a little different. But you know from me. Chris i love the unknown about it. And that's the space i live in. Not just wanna make sure that. I have the space incorporate something in these players that they can just think about it can build from a have a foundation so when they make the transition they have every tool in the toolbox to say okay. Oh that's a problem Assess it let me be able to correct it. Let me obsessed. Let me be aware of it and i think that's the difference between you know coaching a high school kid in in the college. Kid i mean you get able to mold them a little bit better and then you have to understand where they at. Now you know back then. I didn't have social media. We didn't have social media now. These kids these players are building their brand a little bit earlier and now you just meet them where they are. And i can't wait to get them up on campus get them up until atlanta just continue to build a great relationship. Welcome spend time with the one on one in. This situation is going to provide us to do a lot more skill development that i didn't have a really good opportunity and it had not one say good opportunity. I didn't have the best opportunity. Because there's so many things we own a row recruiting You own a row fundraising these different things. Brandon's taken care of in. Dan porter is taken care of. I can just really coach the player and work on his skill development on and off the basketball court. So it's really given me my own lane. So i can really perform my job. Mama job is really breaking down and relationships it starts. Relationship is start with trust. Stars will hold is spending time with the the young student athletes on and off the basketball court and pushed them to greatness and the competition is not on. our side of competition is with him. You know can you beat your previous best bestself. Can you be better than today you know. Can you be better tomorrow than you were date. And that's what i'm coaching. And that's what i love to do. And i think we're going to have some great young man as open as biden has going to be vulnerable going to try to reach for the sky. In the sky is going to be ob- you is not going to be limits. I can't wait to get up to atlanta. We've been having some many camps. Chris has been wonderful to get back on the court with the guys. And i'm looking forward to the next mini camp and dan looking forward to getting them up to atlanta. So we really can go to work. You know when. I was was talking to brian. shaw a couple of months ago. Kevin about how he was coaching. The ignite you know it was a lot of pro stop. He was trying to bring to that team. Are you taking that same. Approach you trying to coach them like their nba players or something different. No it's nothing different is just. I'm building pro. Habits in every situation is going to be different. Chris this is going to be some guys. Come in you know. Say for instance like a. John montero will we got him and he you know is a little bit more advanced than some other players because he's been a pro- already and then it's going to be another situation where we gotta talented guy might not be able to get quick but these opportunities we can go at our own pace we can sit down and talk to them but we're really teaching and building pro habits and those habits is going to translate over to them being great pros when that opportunity come invest in the nba are the euro league so every day you know we are building like a practice plan like more of a college practice plan nba practice bandwidth doing drills. That i got from my numerous stops in the nba. You know we're doing sets in the nba. Then we gotta understand that sixteen years old as well you know and maybe sometimes you gotta you know kinda doubt it down a little bit. But i'm gonna let com. I'm going to let that go. i'm not going to focus on one of it. I'm not gonna say oh. We're doing this process. Each and every day every day is different. And that's what i love about the unknown. And i'm gonna treat it like that and we just gonna continue to bill because i think we got great mas and organization that really want to coach the whole person. And that's what i'm really excited about. You decided to upgrade your outdoor deck. So you ordered the essentials. Power washer said a patio chairs and a shiny new grill. And you use your bank of america. Customized cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping and up to five point. Two five percent preferred rewards member which you put toward your most essential deck addition a bird feeder of yours at bank of america dot com slash more rewarding copyright two thousand twenty one bank of america corporation support for this podcast comes from invent together according to studies less than thirteen percent of all inventors who hold a us patent are women black and hispanic college graduates patent at half the rate of their white counterparts. But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies. Universities and concerned citizens committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to invent and patent because the more diverse. The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand. That's not very nice. That's hovering kevin brand. Thanks for joining me. I appreciate it all right. Thank you chris. Thanks so much.

"The sash and swaddled he could have been right so when he says we wanna cut like cut him loose yes because he's really well and they've wrapped tight do that because a lot of these. These people were being put into shelves on caves. They weren't being buried under the ground right and so you would want their so like you would essentially tie their limbs down to make sure that everything was flat like if you go look google image search for bodies that have been in two terms rooms. They will often like kind of start. Angling and crackling really so they so like if the if they're not tight enough now listen. I know waited nassar's question in the episode. But now it's like prompted. Another question of like we're was lazarus. He was probably in a cave. No but i mean like his soul. Oh we'll see this is my. This is my big problem with this Question beer with this whole story. Because i'm like if i'm lazarus and i die and now i'm in the heavens to be absent from the body is to be present with the lord right so i go will and then i'm going back like what happened other conversation like you've been in heaven or wherever like for four days and then they're like there's like someone over the loudspeaker lazarus. Please come to the front desk. Wanted a front and they're like. Hey you gotta go back you know what though you know what guys i just listened to jesus and jesus as asleep so i just think it was asleep. But my my. That's how i do it. I just listen to think about that. He was like really really dead. I just listened to. Jesus jesus jesus. I wish you would do more of that but i never thought about that. We'll never gone like is he mad that he had to come back like if it's so great in heaven or was he in like some sort of purgatory or was he sleeping until jesus was resurrected. You know i'm gonna say something and this might just be like a bad thing. Certain to this but i remember having a sunday school teacher and he talked about us he was like into the end times and stuff but he was talking about until i don't know if this voucher all i've no idea but He was like until the rapture. The people can go to heaven and they're in a place called like paradise posted. And it's kinda like a holding pen essentially that in my ear. Let us do revelation in the bible bench because she does not want us to have. Yeah and herbie expected to answer. I mean the afterlife is by nature very confusing. So what if you just like in a dnv just like waiting right. I mean it could have been that. Oh my gosh. What if he was in dmv and they were like you get to go back. Thank goodness yeah. You don't have your paperwork you're gonna go back and he's like this. This is this glad And then unfortunately he was probably nude when they took it off. Can i so this is a police say it correctly in terms of biblical duty in terms of biblical duty. He was probably nude and but they didn't think anything up that probably like he gets up. He stands up. And it's like wow. I can't see anything because you guys have swaddled me this but hey everyone else leave. We don't know how many people they met have cut just like kept a like a modesty jesse cut or i think it was a wholly supernatural wind. Actually holy verdict. Would you agree with that. Yes sure yeah yeah. He got her degree with sure. All right so that is it for the journal rebuke for this free episode but as always there many more gentle rebukes included in the ad free episode are patriot.

"Because i think as humans you know were really prone to dogma. There's a simplicity to absolutism. There's black or white right or wrong or live. There's something nice about the clarity of that. But here jesus comes along and everything he does is about the gray in the new ones. Like the yes. I know you're samaritan woman be still have worth the yes. I know we have all these rules but the heart is more important and the yes. I know your brother's dead right now. But there's a different kind of life that i'm bringing to you. All of this may become back to my tendency to miss that nuance when i'm hit with delays in my life whether it's an opportunities relationships or even in the dreams that i have for myself for my family i often interpret delays as denials. But that's so small-minded in reductive because it's often in the delay that we find something more necessary than the requests sometimes. The thing we need most isn't an answer or affirmation but perspective. So if you're listening to this and you're waiting for an answer or you've been delayed in some way mahar goes out to you because the weighting it isn't fun but i urge you not to fixate on what you're missing but rather focus on the perspective perspective. You can gain in the meantime. Because as the story of lazarus shows us perspective transforms grief into hope and death into life. And lastly before we go we're going to end with an accountability segment we call a gentle rebuke with our resume. Bible scholar aaron moon tradition. We send this episode to aaron and she in turn replies with her issues which we will now. Face the music for and full disclosure. Aaron is the senior creative of our company. The podcast media group. She's also so faith adjacent but she's also also a professional bible size writer and editor and she's been empowered and give them full immunity check our biblical tunes renovated sacrilege or any biblical elements. We've misrepresented misinterpreted along the way now. Here's the gentle rebuke. Okay so the first thing you guys asked about was john's gospels purpose in why john would maybe write about things that weren't necessarily in the other three right so john is really focused. More on jesus as god. You've got a lot of the synoptic. Gospels are very intense about just like historical record which is great. We want that. But john's main focus is really more of. Hey yes he was this man. He did these things. But i'm not as concerned with like historical accuracy. Like time-line chronological order. I'm not into that so This so often. As scholars will break up the john into four sections and this is actually the last event of the third section which is called the book of signs and so this is like the culmination the pinnacle of allah jesus's miracles right like raising someone from the dead in the make deal and so in john. Thank you for acknowledging it really is. I know that somebody needs to say it really jane. But he's he's really and that really connects to your question jamie about. Why would john spoil a story that he's about to tell Because he's just really not concerned with historical or chronological like adherence. Yeah he's more. Like i'm here to like express a theological idea to you about jesus being god and their feelings of all and this also shows white would not be a really good fiction writer. No right yeah. He brings feelings to fight. But also like what you're saying. And i never thought about that. Way of all the gospels. It's almost like in a movie when they're getting the team together. There's a driver. There's the demolitions guy..

"He's a it's a classic Protagonist event of they hold the center of gravity because without him dying. There's no story really right but the interesting parts are always around the protection. We actually lahser doesn't even like last year doesn't even say anything shows dialogue. You know their swords me shows up. He just like kicking it on the couch or something. He's not even doing anything those anything yet. We've made lazarus this. We've named the town after hasher and i. I'm not saying that the miracle is not important. Yeah but i just think let's guys. Let's stop giving lazarus the credit even know any. We literally only know anything about him because of his sisters it's proof that in storytelling like the characters often doing the most interesting gangs shirt. Mary martha the rucker raccoons in the story. And i like it. Sorry i'm here for it. Basically draft yeah. That's that's right right. The biggest al i just i'm gonna give it to the disciples again. They just. They don't seem very bright. They're not doing a lot. I just feel like they're not. They're like at ground zero and they're always in the orbit of jesus but they're not picking up any of his like Joie de vive or any of his swagger for storytelling. they're just like literalist and then when they need me littoralis they get metaphorical. And just it's again. It's just i. I think it is It's proof that jesus can use very flawed vessels but also think we put a lot on the. I don't know the superhuman indication of the disciples when i think the emphasis over and over again is these are very basic. People like us and struggling. They don't understand all the time and that's a good thing that's a good thing we can look up to Who or what is the mvp pd of the store. Well you know if you've like it has to be. Jesus like this always jesus but but i will say that. I'm going to give it to mary. I like and it's my version of mary so please know that i like mary. Having a little Holy anger i like version of her. That does not qualify. Her indirect work quest With any kind of polite like your grammy link your dad. He's amazing you know him. You can do stuff i like. They're being version of her. Because what we do know from the rest of the bible is that god has no issue with our questions. He has no issue with our frustration or anger. If it comes from a place of increa- or because he wants to be a relationship with us so i like this version of her. That's like a little feisty. A little fired up. Yeah and dj allegedly a lead no from my perspective. I like this version of her. So i'm gonna give it to her. I'm gonna give it to Martha just because i like that she Manifest that person who who does believe and sees but also Like we saw..

"Jesus began to weep so that you said see how he loved him but some of them said could not he who opened the eyes of the blind man have kept this man from dying. I love the judger. I'm verse thirty eight then. Jesus again. greatly disturbed came to the team. It was a cave and stone was lying against it. She's a sad. Take away the stone. Martha the sister of the dead man said to him lord already. There is a stench because he has been dead for days. I want to know what happens. A dead body. Like what's the dead body thing. You're asking aaron. Yes asking errand to bring him down. I know dead bodies like you said. Jewish tradition said the sole was gone after three days. But like howard bodies you're talking about you. Want embalming corner your outing for like okay. His later we're gonna find out. He's like wrapped tight and cloth wisey rap titan cloth. Yeah okay because he's not preserved right. My nose isn't like got away from bombing. crime. Wanna know. Embalming so i i do like. I do like martha though who like. i know. we're having a moment. But i just need you to know you where jesus there's smell it's going to be you're going to bring out the smell. You better bring him back to life. Yeah that's what. I think she's thinking this unless you're gonna embarrassed my family and like i don't wanna do that. Better come back to live. Like i don't know okay. Verse forty. She said to her tonight. Not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of god. So they took away the stone and jesus looked upward and said father. I thank you for having heard me. I knew that you always hear me. But i have said this for the sake of the crowd standing here so that they may believe that you sent me. I love the side combo with his dad where he's just because this version of jesus is my favorite. I know everything. I am fully. God i am fully human. But i'm also doing a little bit of a performance of roles or because they don't all know that yeah i know it but they don't awfully believe it. I got to create a vibe here. You know what the deal is. I love him making like like lighting a candle making verse forty three. When he said this he cried with a loud voice. Lazarus come out. The dead man came out his hands and feet bound with strips of cloth and his face wrapped in a cloth. Jesus said to them. I'm buying them and let him go if he naked part of embalming quarter but like i need to refresh my memory on biblical duty. I know that we've had episodes where she's like dude. He was not a big deal like people were people were naked especially at this time. Period like with roman influence and the curious is like in wrapping him. And he's just like free flying in the wind man. I i hope it was in my head. It's an artful like he brings him out and then like the wind of reservation. Resurrection like blows some of the binding off. But it's a tasteful like under the bellybutton is still make sense maybe like an armband read the is go free absolutely everything below the waist so covered up. Okay i like that version. So i forty five mini and the jews..

"Forgive me because my whole method is as soon as we talk about stuff. I forget it. We covered the sometimes episode. But i didn't remember a realize that thomas Supposedly he looked a lot like jesus. Oh no do you not remember in the gentle rebuke where aaron literally told us. One hundred percent occupied the book of thomas in the book of thomas and they talk about that. People thought that thomas was jesus twin. Let's pretend i did. That was just super artful. Okay but i think so for him to be like a. We're going. he's the one who most arrest because if they're trying to stone jesus looking guy he's going to be number one number one. Yeah you get them confused so for seventeen. When jesus righty found the lazarus had already been in the team for four days now that four days is significant right because Jesus i read. Jesus waited four days because the jewish superstition of that day which again of that day so important because four days three days two days to us dead is dead doesn't matter how daisy waited but at that moment for someone reading in that time. Four days is very significant because the superstition was that a soul stayed near the great for three days wanting to return to the body therefore for him to not do three days but to do four days was the Life and death flexible flexes to be like even your super. He's definitely smelly dead. He's decomposing and even your silly little superstition that the social round that's gone to be a super mir. This is all your boy. Jesus right right. Right so verse. Eighteen now bethany was near jerusalem some two miles away and many of the jews. It come to martha and mary to console them about their brother when martha her that jesus was coming she went and met him while mary stayed at home. I wanna one martha jesus lord. If you'd been here my brother would not have died but even now. I know that god will give you whatever you ask of him. I love this. It's like a wink. Wink nudge nudge. Like i'm going to tell you the situation. Yeah and but you know even though you know now. I mean like god would do whatever you ask him. It's like when you're in the wedding. At where jesus mom is like man. There's no more wine kudaka her. What do you think about my casual observation. There being no why. Objection your honor leading the witness a little bit. Because i think it's it's there's a lot happening in her exchange with him. And i think you could read that as passive aggression or or something but i do think it's. It's i don't know it's not. It's not manipulative. I think is just like talking. About what's real and what's real to her in that moment. Well and it's such a big deal that she leaves the house right because the tradition is you're sitting shiva right. That is a jewish mourners participate in a day seven days. They sit on low stools or boxes while people come by and bring their condolences. That sitting shiva is that you're being brought low by your grief right And so she left the house. That's already controversial that she has left. But that's what she's not even waiting for jesus to get there..

"I'm sure i'm very anti again. This is pre black plague. So i think that'll undo a lot of those customs but yeah. I know i know that you want to bring me something like love on me but i need you to not come to my house but i did. Here's what i think about this. I i feel like it's so important. Acknowledged that mary and martha are not asking their cousin. Chad to come bring a cake. They are literally asking their fringe. Jesus who they know has spent three years healing. The sick so i like that. They're asking him that him staying behind. It's a flex. Yeah yeah. And i kinda secretly like and even to that point. It's not a guide him at once. I think this this trio Mary martha and lazarus. They're kind of the no new friends. With jesus like there's the inner core and he has his disciples to be sure but it. It seems like they know him in a way. That's different from everybody else. And we talked about it in the episode on mary and martha about how mary martha. We're probably funding much of jesus suspend us free and so there is a connection there but professionally in personally. Do you think that john and mary have beef because in verse five. He's like jesus loved martha and her sister. And lazarus we know that john brings his drama to his writings when he's like and john beat peter to the to the champ because he ran faster than look. I you know everybody i. I'm fascinated with the and you know when you get away from this one guy wrote it and turned it in and they printed it ran But even still. The school of ideology are the people who influenced by john who composite this together. The idea that like what we get with. John is there's more emotion there's more emotional texture than there's like luke and he brings his own interesting textures. Like there's probably more crying in this than anywhere else in the bible as right So for seven. Then after this he said the disciples let us go to judeh again for say the disciples said in. Rabbi the jews. Were just trying to sell you and are you going there again. I i g standard are. They're not twelve hours of daylight. Those who walk during the day do not stumble because they see the light of this world for sin but those walk at night stumble because the light is not in them. Do you think like the text doesn't include this. Would you think like some of the cyber were like. There's a great line like we should totally earmark that for for a sermon But no really like the jews won a murder you so i really think that. They're at least three of the twelve disciples that are rolling their eyes at riddle. Jesus like the fact that he answer simple questions like..

"Lazarus we're trying to capitalism on that ideas. He he is. You know face forward but kind of a background player when you really look at like the mechanics and they're not symbols of historian his existence so we chose james marsden which i still feel really good about because he does seem to be that kind of guy who whether it's like an enchanted or thirty rock or less world. He's got a really pretty face and now leads it. But you don't get much after that. And i think that's kind of the laser story this crazy story and then we don't really know anything else about. Yeah that's exactly right. So so where are we. We're we're back in the new testament. And as a reminder. The first four books of the new testament are called the gospels. Matthew mark luke and john they tell the story of jesus's birth his life his death. Now we talk about the gospels and kind of how they interact with each other in episode six of season one when we talk about joseph the father of jesus because a lot of times stories duplicate right. You'll get a story. That's in three of the gospel. That's called the triple tradition right but today story is actually only found in the book of john. Despite the fact that this family they are mentioned in all four books of the gospel. It's like the this group a lot a lot. So jesus had three years of active ministry throughout the region and we are now in this final homestretch. He's been making his way back from the north and galilee back to jerusalem. Because i i don't know if you know. He has a date with a cross and so jesus is currently somewhere in the region of pariah which is northeast of jerusalem on the other side of the jordan. He's basically on a parable preaching tour. Yeah that's really. He's spending all his time doing parables. But the other report note about pereira is the folks judeh who have literally headed up to here. would jesus shenanigans. They do not have authority in pereira but in bethany where. Mary and martha and lazarus live. They do have authority to arrest. Jesus if he shows up there and that is where our story picks up now. Okay so as we we're gonna scripture. I think it's always important. We're in a new season for people who are new to the show or whatever i think you know. We always emphasize As we go through the story what we're really passionate about is It's important understand. Not just what. The story entails in like how it fits into larger context but the why of the store. Why is history here. And what is the purpose going on. Here right like the in the old the old adage about story telling us everything should follow like therefore but right and so like we know what will happen the nuts and bolts into great miracle but y z here and i think sometimes scripture has a tendency to be confounding or lease details anymore. But there's always a purpose no matter like how frustrating the story as there is. A distinct purpose of the inclusion of that story might be an anachronism. But it's still. There's a purpose here. So i think As we read through this. I really like the lens of this..

"The difference between storytelling run. The mill selling is the run selling these days not these days but pretty much forever sales transmission based on look. Your job is to persuade somebody to buy your product. Thus there's only really one solution possible. And so i'm going to use persuasion a hammer to convince you that you need to buy this so why not. Just skip to the resolution because there's only one resolution that's it whereas instead storytelling and and my belief is my next book will the all about this is. We're really trying to influence the choices and trade offs that the customers make and persuasions not the tool to use for that so storytelling becomes a good way to approach it. I love everything you just. I know i was. I was hoping you were gonna say influence. When you're like storytelling helps. You influence the conversation. It's not pushing guideline and align right. And i think this is where janin's go manip- at this concept of this big idea that ultimately does help you differentiate yourself from the competition but it does it at a very strategic level. Yeah so and i'm going to tag him on that lee. Because we've got these four signposts right andy and it's in the book we spell it out really simply and to me. It's like giving people a common language. It's letting them learn how to speak a new language right. It's called story. And if we all talk the same language especially as we work in collaborate with teams it makes it a heck of a lot easier to put together narratives and iterating collaborate with others. So we take those four signpost but we kind of layer on because when you introduce conflict which is the third time post and by the way the first three can go in any order from it can be verbal. They can be visual when you introduce conflict in any narrative it creates tension in the room right the virtual room the physical room or the phone your audience all of a sudden your customers like okay. Hold the phone. You've just disrupted what i know to be true. You've just killed my status quo right. We say conflict is the status quo killer. But that's actually a healthy thing. It's a good thing it's a it's an essential ingredient in storytelling but with conflict comes discomfort and so to get your audience from discomfort to okay. I'm with you. I'm going to breathe again.

Singleness: Burden and Gift

"Join us today as we talk about singleness as well as what it means to be single and life in the church join us in having the conversations that shape us greetings tobin. Welcome to another conversation. Come listeners this amount of baptist. Podcast how you doing tobin. I'm doing good. How are you doing doing all right. It's been a tough week for for us. Say you recently lost a loved one in your family anthem. I'm mourning the loss of a friend. So you know different times during cova de wouldn't you say oh for sure. It's definitely a tough time to lose somebody during covid because you don't exactly get to see them funeral plans start looking different and there's a whole bunch of other different support. Networks are starting to look differently than they did before hand right. I was even thinking we talked about death last week. And then it kind of hits you personally so it's very interesting right. It's it's just part of our lives and when we don't think about it don't deal with it sometimes for caught unawares but yeah it's good to have to have that background and even as we are recording this we are almost at where death also plays a central role in the story and to defeat of death. Of course as well so yeah. It's very interesting. Yeah very much so. We had one of our recommendations to talk about singleness this week from a listener. Yeah it's quite the switch from death and there's quite a few ways we can take this conversation right so we'll kind of see how it unfolds. We'll see how the cookie crumbles but we could talk about singleness as an experience of individuals within the western culture right. We're probably talk about in our second half singleness as it relates to biblical values and and and culture and what the bible says there right and then we can also talk about a little bit in the beginning now about how singleness in psychology relate to one another. Yeah that's a good idea. Why don't you start us off with that Even as you're talking about it's interesting to even think about what is singleness right because singleness can be so many different things depending on how you define singleness and not being singled. So what do you think right. So single head is if we were to come up with something like a working definition here i would say. Single single hood is defined by not being in relation with another person. And i think the traditional idea of cygnus is in a romantic setting okay and you had some statistics on singleness in canada. As well which. I found fascinating i did and when i read these statistics. They're not exactly using the same definition. I am right and from what i understand. These are talking about single households so in canada. there there was an article in twenty nine thousand nine that wrote that compared to nineteen eighty six in two thousand sixteen. We had approximately double the amount of people who lived alone and so that means that we have about four million canadians across canada. Who who are single. Who who live alone and now with someone who provides that romantic so seventy percent of the four million have previously been in a relationship which would include widowed divorced or separated by any other means twenty percent of this four million are currently in a relationship with somebody but they just don't live in the same household right and then fifty percent of these individuals also have a child. Roughly speaking two million canadians live in a single parent or guardian household and are pulling triple or quadruple duty in order to support and care for the children or the dependence and simply don't have the same resources that we do with having an extra person there right fascinating. So when i asked you about the definition singleness you talked about not being in a meaningful relationship or romantic attachment to someone but then as you're giving us each statistics you already seeing a little bit of a clash with how you defined versus how perhaps canada or society defines it right because society defines this as just romantic attachment. I was just thinking about singleness before we even we even talk today and How we just assumed that you have to be part of a meaningful. You have to report a meaningful romantic relationship or attachment in order to not be single whether that's married or living with somebody or at least being boyfriend girlfriend whatever we wanna do whatever we want to call it but the experience of singleness goes beyond just that right. I mean The i was reading some articles about this author deborah hirsch. She's a christian author. She's a little bit out there because she talks about sexuality but she talks about homosexuality is not just a sexual expression within a sexual relationships ship between two bodies but that sexuality transcends also into every relationship we have because we we can't just separate parts of our being. We can't just say this part of me sexual in this. Part of me is relational. And this part of me is spiritual we are one hole and so it transcends. I heard a talk by her. And so she talked about what that means for single people and and celebrate people people who choose to be celebrate in that setting. And that doesn't mean that these people don't need community or meaningful relationships of attachment even if they're not romantic attachments over shirt and i like that idea of the embodied whole as you can't we can't segment like like you said sexual the the spiritual whatever that it all comes together as one person right that being said there are individuals out there who would find they can be in a non sexual relationship. That'd be classically to find a single but aren't troubled by that Right so you're looking at the asexual community where relationships with out that sexual component still fulfilling and meaningful right right and the flip side to that is you have people who have this meaningful community. Who who have lots of deep meaningful attachments to other people but are longing for would consider themselves being single and lonely and longing for a deeper expression for deeper romantic and sexual attachment to someone exactly while there are some that. Do not need that romantic or other person attachment to the same level. There's other people that crave and need it and desire so talk to me a little bit about what that means in terms of how how you live life and how you engage life as a single person. Well okay so growing up in canada as this as a single person who is wanting a relationship and can't find it what is what is that. Psychologically like and i would i have. I think i have a few friends who would fit this category and i just from conversations with them it's not a enjoyable experience Even in my own past bake as someone who from eighteen onwards wanted to have like girlfriends and wanted to be in those in in in relationships with other beings who felt that long. I've had a taste of how powerful that loneliness and that drive four relationship can be right and then there's a certain amount of feeling of rejection and isolation loneliness from not having that being fulfilled so as you're talking my question comes up. What's the. I am trying to word this but where maybe i'm using the wrong words but where does longing turned into obsession or or need so so what i mean by that is can you have that long. Can you desire something and still be content. With present circumstances. I mean that comes down to how you define contentment I would say that if contentment means you're all right with the circumstance. Then no because you still desire that relationship okay We talked quite a number of episodes back about the dark night of the soul right about longing for something how You desire of reality of presence to be with in in my circumstance was to be with god and how reality circumvents that there then becomes a conflict between what is felt. And what is known. That being said you've already touched on this with the obsession component right but then there is also that danger of it becoming an obsession of turning that pain right into something negative such as is found in some communities such as the involuntary salvator the in self community online right and then what you find in those communities is that a lot of this pain and turmoil gets turned outwards against other communities where they start blaming other people and other things for their own loneliness and rejection and in doing so their reactions become a negative coping mechanism an unhealthy behavior to try and alleviate the discomfort or rationalize it so then that goes back to my original question so because because my worry is that that we're kind of setting up a binary in the sense that i want to be in a more committed relationship of one sort or another. Let's call it romantic for for better for lack of a better word. So i want to be under romantic relationship. I'm either in the stage of wanting that and the more i wanted to do the closer i get to it being an obsession in my life or i get it and then i'm fine but there is no room to to to live a. Is there no room then to live a life. That says hey i would really desire this but i will also be content. Happy with where i am right now and and live into that to the fullest. And that's that's tricky because we don't have a lot of social narratives that kind of give us that framework to experience singleness in a healthy way. So if i were to break that down a little bit when we watch movies in rome these romantic movies and stuff. It gives us a lot of even you even say it's either healthier unhealthy. That's not me to judge right now but it still gives you those narratives to kind of go and say oh. This is what it's like to be in relationship. This is how i can experience relationship and and dating and being with another person. We don't have movies about what it's like to be alone at least not popularly right right or if they are they're fairly depressing right. There fairly depressing. It's all about not being in that relationship and own. Maybe i'll get into that relationship. There's the whole trope in the late. Two thousands of the manic pixie dream girl where it's all about these writers hollywood writers that use women and relationships to give men character growth in arcs in the movie right so it's all about being relationship pure like it's not about the expression of singleness as healthy in itself. It's about relationship as fixing your problems so that not then create problematic relationships as well. In the sense that i'm finding all my fulfillment than in that relationship once. I do find a relationship where i where i haven't grown as a person or don't have enough emotional intelligence to be content with the person that i am because the person that i was always looking for someone else to to complete me exactly. It creates problems both in relationships expectations for relationships and for people who also want to enter relationships. Right and even individually it creates a learning process or provides an opportunity for a healthy learning environment. Where you start to empathize with your partner where you can put yourself. In their shoes and learn that your flaws also have to be negotiated with their flaws and that there's a balancing act and interpersonal dynamics. Come in and i mean that turns even so now. We're talking about dating but that that that's the same thing with with friendships as well right. If you're i can see a scenario. I've seen lots of scenarios where where you're not content. You're not necessarily content with who you are and so you're you're expecting a lot of out of that friendship relationship for your happiness for your contentment even for your self esteem for the way you Assess your own value that kind of stuff And that can even come out in familiar. Familial relationships as well right where you depend. It's about on another to define who you are and to give you that esteem right and so i mean maybe we're getting off track but that's kind of what singleness conversations are in the sense. Is that the healthiest relationships in our lives are are where we have Some sort of independence isn't it. Yeah yeah independence crates freedom. Authenticity for who you are. In relation to the overall relationship that being said we also live in a society that needs us to be in relationship so to further expand on this point there is there has been studies. I was just scrolling passively I love read it i. I'm on it all day while just pathway scrolling on read it and they were talking about how people live longer when they're in hell in healthy relationships. Oh interesting and lots of articles in the medical community about how people who come in with their partners rent have better treatment results and partly to have somebody to talk to and somebody else to gather information. Yeah whatever the reason is another person there right even just as a tax bonus is is beneficial. So we have. We live in a society that set up for couples and yet the dangerous. become too codependent. And while there's this whole codependence piece talked about but then how as a single person do you live right right so if your approach this as as a single person you see the i live in a society that needs couples that needs you know somebody to stay home and clean the house or look after the kids while somebody else needs to go work. How do i be both people. Yeah or even attach detaches. I think in our society we attach maturity to to relationships as well right so a part of adulting is to be in a meaningful relationship. I always found that whole areas adulting if being an adult but somehow of verb but anyways You know like you are considered writes so you are considered to be a more mature adults in comparison to other people your age if you're in a meaningful relationship and on top of that if you do certain things if you have a certain job if you have a house and if you have kids right over sure i even feel that in school like what. I'm twenty five now. But because i'm married all of a sudden that puts me in a whole nother brand right of society all of a sudden i'm more mature i'm responsible and i'm sure if i had kids out even put me in another bracket above 'cause now i'm looking after little right little little children but as as we're talking i'm just wondering if we wouldn't have a healthier society if we we would learn what it looks like to live healthily in singleness for a time of our lives even just a how we talk about singleness it would be helpful for the individuals who are signal Because we are seeing a rise in people who live alone or who aren't conventionally married or unconventionally being with somebody else and just to harry healthier narratives for them to us and to understand themselves and even understand ourselves with. Kate will greatly benefit us as a community as a as a broad social community as christians and canadian. A do well. Let's transition a bit into the bible here. where So where have if. I'm a single person. And i wanted and i'm and i'm just lonely as all can be. Have you found that. Most people find their strength. I think were most people go in terms of the bible. At least we can talk about how we talk about church. How about single isn't church. And how we treat single people insertion. That's a separate thing from how the bible talks about singleness. I mean jewish culture. Very much thought that you had be married that that's just you know that that's the purpose of your life is to be married if you're mad at your purposes to have a have a wife so that your wife can have children and and your family line keeps going and if you if you were a woman you know your goal was that for your family to find to find the man or family who would take you i mean as a patriarchal society is but there is no. I don't know if there's a real allowance The only time there is conversation is about widows right and how you treat widows and so in that sense. The old testament is much more progressive than the surrounding cultures of its time and makes allowance for widows and treats them well and in that sense even relationships are still political. Yeah in that. It's not about so much being with somebody else. As it is a way to further your lineage as a way to get some gain right and not saying that there isn't a component. Alright love between why. Perhaps there is some counter cultural stories even embedded within the old testament to see the story of of ruth and her mother-in-law. Ruth naomi. i mean ruth's story restoring does end in marriage but it's very much naomi who makes it happen and they owe me you know. She kind of becomes a mother kind of surrogate mother to son that ruth bears. I mean that's how the story ends in the bible. Were supposed to see that image. Even though she's not married so it's a fairly counter cultural story there is rahab the prostitute who becomes part of israel. There's the story of tamar who forces kind of what we would call a constitutional crisis. It's not a constitutional crisis but it's a crisis of the law for for for one for for one of the for one of the men that was supposed to marry her. Her father in law's supposed to marry her according to the law because her husband has passed away but he refuses and so eventually she she forces her way into this. There's the story of astor who who kind of becomes part of this abusive kings. Well she's the she becomes the queen to disabuse of king and rescue the people of israel. I think all of those are somewhat counter cultural in the sense that that they're describing to us non normative relationships within that paradigm but also some of these women become not all of them that i mentioned but some of them are part of the story of jesus right so matthew mentions for women in the genealogy of jesus and even though clearly there had to be men for those four women to have borne children has not the men that are identified. It's the women that are identified. And so it already kind of focuses more on the person under relationship that that they were in jesus himself never married according to the gospels. All of a sudden you have these single people doing things right. i mean we. We don't we don't know of mary. Martha lazarus or married. We never find out. They are just people right. The assumption probably is that they would be. But but even when lazarus dies. we don't hear about his wife morning right. We we hear about his sisters. Mary magdalene she married. We don't know right. I mean you go down the list of all these characters and somehow we don't often find out about their familial relationships and isn't there a passage in there somewhere about how it it in summary. It's like get married if you want to. But you know your your relationship with the lord is i and you gotta serve that primary. I corinthians that where it is. I post writing. Yeah i mean. Paul paul is also single. There's a hint there. in first. Corinthians read the passage wrongly sometimes. But there's a hint there. In first corinthians step maybe at one point paul was married and he considers himself a widower. I've never heard preached in church but there is a hint there because he's talking to the widows and widowers and he's co counseling them to stay single and he says be as i am so he identifies himself with them. He doesn't leader. He talks to to what he calls the virgins which would be the single people who are potentially also engaged to be married which is different than the widows widowers and so there he doesn't say as i am because he's not. He doesn't see himself like that. He sees himself like a widower. So but in that passage. Basically what paul is saying. Yeah Marriage is a good thing and if you want to be married be married and if you don't wanna be married you have a gift to bring to the conversation as well and the way the we paul seasons in that conversation is gift that single people bring is is an attachment to church and into the work of god. I mean this comes out of paul of paul paul's idea anyways is that jesus coming back soon. You know. And so he saying why. Why waste your time getting married. We have so much stuff to do. Let's go get working and proclaiming. Jesus christ but that's the gift that single people that that's the gift that he sees himself bringing to the church as well right. I'm single so i can go and serve god and i can go and proclaim and so So he very much kind of trying to tell people. Stay in whatever situation you are. Don't get divorced if you're married. Stay married and have sex. He literally. I mean literally what he says. Don't don't all of a sudden now because you think that you're that you're christian. Stop having sex. If you're in a marriage you know. There's no you're not holier if you're in a celebrate marriage with somebody then if you're in a sexual relationship with somebody and so That's kind of his frame of mind right and so what. I take that passage. Don't i think what we should take a passage is that there's legitimate calling and gift to singleness within our congregations and we haven't really acknowledged that ever or very rarely and as as you're talking here. This is reminding me of a story that. I read quite quite a quite a few years ago when i was taking a family and marriage class. I believe that was the course. I was in for this. Where was talking about An evangelical preacher who was off doing missionary work off off in the boonies somewhere and then his daughter right was or his family was having trouble and distress and their daughter. I think even commit suicide over his lack of involvement. Yeah this is a story that i read in a book called sweet surrender by dennis hiebert and the question raised is what becomes more important family or missionary work right well. My critique on this was that he shouldn't this this preacher guys should not have even gotten married in the first place if he couldn't have committed to the relationship as a whole right right. And you know. I i mean before we talk. Today i went and reread some of this stuff. And i corinthians seven and you you can go and read yourself there paul saying that. If you're married you are committing to that relationship and you need to give it a significant amount of energy. That is your calling by god within marriage so you you know the the the calling that god puts on you cannot supersede that calling that god has put on you for that marriage. Because you're asked to be in this relationship of mutual self giving love so you have to kind of buy into that but if you don't need to be in a relationship like that then you can give some of that energy to the work at hand or two one way to one way to to translate it. There has to present necessities. Paul says And so that's that's how paul would put would address it. I don't think paul would understand. I don't think. Paul understand our fascination with saying hey To be to be a good human. I need to be part of a relationship. I need to be in a marriage any to have kids. And then i'm going to dedicate all my energy to my work or to my church. You know for pastors or or to this and ev- this relationship that i've committed to is going to take second place to another relationship i've inserted into it and then using jesus own words to kind of To support that is weird. I don't think paul would ever do that exactly. And i think we put this pressure on missionary work that It becomes the one and only calling for a christian to be part of god's works in the world. Yeah and what. Paul is trying to say i think is hey. If you're single now you can do mission or missionary work. You're not attached to the work of your marriage covenant relationship so why not not stay the way you are. He's trying to tell these people in corinthians why not stay the way you are and do missions work. If that's what you feel like god is calling you to see in our mind. We have turned completely around. We often how we are. We have such distrust of single people especially single men that we say. Hey no-no before you can do ministry worker before you can do missionary work and this is very much agenda conversation because it's not the other way around. We don't distress single women we asked him. and then. So that's an noticing this even as we speak right here. I've been hesitant to talk about this call. That paul has and says. Hey you're single and you can work for the church because to me. It sounds abusive. Make single women do often. We send them out to be missionaries. We asked him to serve. You don't have children. you can do this right. We don't do the same thing for single men or very scared of single men and if want men to do any kind of ministry. We want men to be married and have children because that safety as so. That's that's even the gender dwayne which we approach singleness right. And i think you're in a very unique position at thirty to even speak about that because of your work now with Generation rising coming up and with your older work at in out of town or you did that sort of abroad. Work right where you've seen students and individuals who either as a couple or who are dating or who are single going off and doing this work in in in africa or or wherever you sent them thinking of even thinking about who hires churches in terms of pastors right. It's okay for youth pastor. It's okay for a youth pastor to be single sometimes right because they're young Oftentimes if men right they're young. That's alright we prefer a single woman or a married woman to our children's ministry because they're just more approachable to children. Once you're past you get into a more. An associate pastor position or a lead pastor position. We really want that pastor to be married whether they're a woman or a man we really would like them to be in a committed relationship because that to us is the highest ideal. The highest value within the congregation. Right i mean. I don't think i've been to a church where we've had a single lead pastor. I have. I have not attended a church like that anyways. No i'm trying to think. I don't think i've ever had lead pastor as a single person. i've had associate pastors. Who were then in a divorce relationship or in a separate relationship right and that could be a whole nother podcasts. But yeah yeah. And i can't speak to their experiences. No no but within at least within the evangelical world that i've grown up in yet it's marriage seems to be this high ideal and so any time we talk about singleness and we talk about singleness even as a calling or as an opportunity We tend to think in our minds we tend to think about singleness calling opportunity for women not so much for men and we also tend to not put enough support around single people So we're tend to not give them the same community and while we say. Hey we value your singleness and if that's what god calls you to. Do we want to embrace that and you you can. You have something to give to us. We still want to celebrate mother's day and church and get frustrated when we celebrate we. Don't we still want to celebrate. Father stay in church and get frustrated when we don't and I can just. I mean i make a point of saying something to that effect every mothers and fathers day and i can just hear the roles you know i know the is aren't actually rolling but i can just hear that there's that pressure on you with the congress within the congregations like there there goes rafael again. Trying to be all politically correct not politically correct. It's an acknowledgment that our humanity is not just defined by our roles as fathers and mothers in within that attached relationship And committed relationship of of of marriage. I mean are not the only vision for for humanity not even in the bible. You know i mean. Let's talk about men. That aren't that that we wouldn't consider being fully men. I mean there's daniel and his three friends there most likely unix. Because that's what would happen in the bible. Once they were once they were taken as prisoners in palace. We have a whole book stories that we love to tell our kids about daniel right and we talk about the end times. We love to go to daniel and talk about you know that kind of stuff. There's there's a whole church in ethiopia that today still claims and traces their lineage. Back to a conversation with an ethiopian eunuch on-road from jerusalem Who's who has converted and baptized than an the ep ethiopian. Church still says. That's where we come from because he goes back right but somehow we've said that the highest ideal value is marriage is is being committed marriage with two children and suburban suburban right. Right right. I mean even within our culture. We do not have father's day and mother's day and a far saying on mother's day or a single people's they right we just don't either and so i would say for maybe the if we were to sum everything up that there's a really deep call. Or there's a really deep spirituality to being single and that there is special and it's needed and it's not any worse of a calling that being said we also need to adjust start cultural narratives and what we say in how we talk. And how he fee with people that needs to shift so that they can also feel that calling especially this has been another episode of the modern anna baptist.

"lazarus " Discussed on Water and The Spirit Podcast

"I give all my thoughts. Thanks to God for this. Legalistic faith that is not placed in the righteousness of God cannot be the real faith. Today the Lord is telling us that no life can be saved through the law or anything else. He said that salvation is Possible only by his power and the Lord did in fact Save a Life when the Lord said Lazarus come forth Lazarus came out of the cave grave wrapped in linen cloth. Our Lord has such power. My fellow Believers and me included it is only by the righteousness of the Lord that we have received salvation from sin. Not buy anything else it is because the Lord has raised us back to life by his power of Salvation that we have obtained our Salvation from sin. In other words. The Lord has brought back to life our souls that have been dead because of our sins found he has given us this new life. It is the Lord who has brought us back to life which neither the law nor any good deeds of our own could ever achieve. Our existence is such that without the righteousness of God. We can never be saved from sin. And even if we were to be saved we could not be made perfect unless we believed in the Lord. Our righteousness is imperfect, but the righteousness of the Lord is perfect and everlasting. What would happen if we did not believe in this righteousness of God to the end we would then always remain imperfect off and will be nothing more than piles of sin. That is why we believe that the righteousness of the Lord is far greater than our own righteousness God We Trust in the Lord's righteousness every single day every hour every minute and every second. We are now living before God having been made perfect and have attained New Life by believing in the righteousness of the Lord bless you and I are such people those who believe in the gospel of the water and the spirit. As human beings we often find ourselves Bound by our own weaknesses, even though we have received the remission of sins through the gospel of the water and the spirit. We still tend to tie ourselves down with our own thoughts. This is likened as to how Lazarus dead body was tightly wrapped with linen cloth when Lazarus died. He was wrapped in bandages from his head to his toes box. That is why when Lazarus walked out of the Tomb when the Lord called him out. He walked out alive still wrapped and bound in a cloth. What do you think? The Lord is trying to teach us about this incident the implication here? Is that even if you are brought back to life unless you remove that which binds you you will not be able to lead your life properly. That is why the Lord told us the disciples to unbind Lazarus and let him go free so that he would live a new life. Spiritually speaking fellow Believers. We were exactly like Lazarus just as the Lord raised Lazarus back to life with his word. So has he also raised us back to life with the gospel of the water and the spirit..

Defending MacOS Against Sophisticated Attacks

"I've come from a kind of unusual background I guess for somebody in Cybersecurity. In. The sense that I started. I. Mean I've been involved with the MAC platform for. Something like fifteen years or more. But I didn't really start getting into it in a kind of technical way until about eleven years ago. And, I just started out on Apple's support forums trouble-shooting. Volunteering. Troubleshooting advice to people. And after Wa, that led me to most problems that are coming up back then were or it started to be when we started to see security issues like adware and things like that. And that sort of an Brown about way, let me to develop my own software to basically deal with all these issues. Instead of answering people's questions all the time. and. So for about five or six years I was. Developing my own software and doing that and. Then, about two years ago, I joined central one, basically, they were looking for somebody who had background in McCoy security shoes to sort of help with with research. And somebody who kind of knew the threat scape and sort of seen it evolve so. That's kind of how I got to today. Janka. Where do we find ourselves today when it comes to Mac Os and and sort of the state of things when it comes to security and what's your estimation of where we are? Generally the Mackie's a safe platform. I don't think. There's a big argument about that, but I think the the issue really is that. There is a malware problem on Mac os which never existed maybe five or six years ago. It's actually even escalated again in the last couple of years I think and I think part of that is to do with the fact that Maxim now. Foul often found in business environments whereas they probably weren't. Going back was five or six years would really. Popular Business Machine. And I think it's also that. Just to use his vague general term threat actors. Realized there is money to be made from accuses. Possibly it comes with the development of the iphone from two, thousand seven. But the fact that people now have them. Max connected to so many other devices there a rich hunting ground for people who want to. Gather, data of adware. We. Also have some more targeted actors as well with the business environment. So. I think the situation today really is that. There is a lot more threats, for Max, and has ever been before, but I think also not a great awareness Soviet. If you compare that to say windows. Yeah. You can ask even the most basic windows us and they probably know what an AV is probably know that they need to have windows defender turned on or something like that. But with MAC users, I don't generally get that sense of awareness. You know this is sort of general feeling that it's a market. It's safe by design. You know I think that's. Something that people really need to have second thing about with the kind of threats that we see these days. It's it's my perception from the folks that I've talked to that the majority of the The malware hitting Mac users seems to be adware people. It's that classic update your copy of Flash and then something gets installed shows. Ads is, is that an accurate perception on my part I? Would say, so I think I wouldn't like to give figures because I don't really have the data to to say that, but you know it. Sort of. Off of the top of my head, I would say, probably seventy eighty, maybe even ninety percent of the stuff I actually see on a day to day basis is going to be adware and it's Kinda cousin, which is the stuff recalled bundle way all the kind of. Potentially. unwanted. Software. That gets installed alongside says, download some software manager and you get like ten. Things back keeper and Lisov utilities that are not really often any any value. That often get installed. Through hidden, very, very difficult to see check boxes and things like that. CRYPTO is also thing. We've had allowed minor bird minors in the last couple years that they've been intimidated detections. We see those on the rise quite a lot. and. Too, much lesser extent. There's bits of the spyware. Data stealing stuff, Anacostia things that get headlines every hour now, and again is the. Things Lazarus or AP GM era. You know very very targeted dings going after specific uses. So yeah, I. Mean I. think that's a fairly accurate way to think about it. In terms of the general user. I, think the most threats they're looking at our. ADWARE unbundle where? The other problem that I'm I see. Developing is when we look at these adware bundle where actors and. Listen to in the media's general slayer which has been. Pretty proactive in the last eighteen months, or so what you see is a lot of interaction between between themselves and a lot of swapping. So you get adware sources installing bundle wear and you get bundle where download is that are serving up where and it's it's kind of difficult. Actually a Lotta time to pull up different players, all these sort of paper install kind of things, some serving adware, some of them are serving genuine malware so. It seems as if there is a lot full of interaction with these guys. In terms of helping each other out to. Serve this. I mean I just called a whole lot malware. Basically, something that the US had doesn't want doesn't know and is not in our interests and as you know as far as I'm concerned it, you might as well call it all where. The number of these things his what's really. Quite. Shocking. When you look at just how much more of this is occurring this more this year than there was last year, you know almost exponentially, and this seems to be more players as

Weeping over the Lost (Luke 19:41)

"Luke Chapter Nineteen Verses Forty One And when Jesus. Drew Near and saw the city he wept over it. When a Simple short significant verse. One of two times where we see Jesus weeping in the Gospels. Thing John. Chapter. Eleven thirty five when Mary comes running out to Jesus, her brother, Lazarus has died. Presumably in part because she didn't make it there in time to help and she's weeping, she falls at his feet weeping now Jesus knows what he is about to. To raise Lazarus from the dead but he sees Mary's tears and he weeps with her she just weeps with those who weep with his children, who we, how powerful picture is that and then so now this time in Luke. Chapter nineteen verses forty one Jesus weeping. But it's not weeping with people who are hurting. It's sweeping over a city full of people who is rejecting him who in the days to come crucify him and Jesus weeping over them. What a powerful picture? It's one thing to weep with. Mary and Martha over the death of Lazarus and these are close friends that he spent time with. Now. He's weeping over the people who are going to kill him. We're GONNA crucify him in the most cruel form of murder. They could imagine he's weeping for them because he longs for them to know his father's love. That's why he's going the cross because he loves them and so he weeps over their souls over their rejection of him. And so. I would just ask like, when was the last time? You or I walked. Over people. who either one do not know Jesus like weeping over those who were lost. Or to to take a step further weeping over those who are lost and maybe who are your enemies Maybe who oppose you? Maybe who Would want to hurt you. Ask the level here of weeping. So God, we pray make our hearts more like Jesus make my heart I pray more like Jesus. I pray that over every single person who's listening right now, make their hearts more like Jesus God, we want to feel what you feel. We WanNa feel your compassion Jesus for those who were lost for those who are lost and we love right around us and those who are lost to, we may be prone date that we may be tempted to despise in some way. God gives us Christ like love for even our enemies God we pray you would bring us to tears do this work in our hearts Such that when we think about when we see when we pray for those who are far from you whether they're right around us so far from us whether they're close to us or there's actually a lot of distance not just geographically but relations between us God we pray for this kind of compassion that causes us to weep and God we specifically today for the Macci People in Pakistan two point six, million of them. Zero followers of Jesus. No followers of Jesus. No one who knows your love no one who knows your grace toward them among the monchy gunnery parade give us your heart for unreached people around the world gives your. Caused us to crowd for them and to go to them to make the gospel known among them. Gotree Bray you would break our hearts for unreached people, break our hearts for people right around us and for from. US. Bring us to a point where Luke nineteen forty one is a reality in our own hearts where we are weeping over the loss weeping with compassion over even our enemies. He'll make us more like Jesus we pray. In his name. Amen.

Botanical Latin with Ross Bayton

"What an undertaking encyclopedia more than two thousand plants. Five thousand entries or terms and hundreds of beautiful botanical. It was quite a work came to me and said well. We have room for about five thousand words. Which ones are? You'RE GONNA choose while it was quite an option. There are millions of clients out there so I had to kind of winnow it. Down to the the cream of the crop. Well I've been enjoying it As I said in the introduction you dipping back in and really smiling to have sort of the provenance of the definition so to speak of many of my favorite plants revealed but before we get to that I just wanted to Know a little bit about like why this is not new territory for you've written other things about plant genealogy so to speak. Why is this important to you? Where did you get into this in your life? Well I started gardening as a kid I had a poll of English. Iv that I grew in my room My parents were in the military and we traveled around a lot so I didn't have a garden but I grew a lot of house. Plants and I started by dipping into book that my mom had go reader's digest. It was an encyclopedia of. Houseplants HAS NAMES THERE. And some beautiful illustrations and the words just seem to stick in my mind in a way. The other things don't tend to forget people's names really really good at remembering of names I once. I started to see similarities between one name and another started to be curious about. Won't connections were my mom's a big fan of sweet peas and they are Lazarus Buddha Ross's yes and I realized meant fragrant and I saw that word in other plant names in my garden right spring. But it all the DOTS connecting. Yeah Yeah so okay so for gardeners listening. So why Latin any way and is it truly even Latin or is there some Greek in here? You know what what tell us a little bit about? Why Botanical Latin kind of like Wyatt evolved why it was invented quote unquote. You know a little history. What we call botanical lasted would not be understood by people living in ancient Rome last night. basically what happened is is in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries scholars at universities. They taught entirely in Latin Understanding learning this language was thought to provide agility of mind for the students but also A lot of universities were connected to the church and many churches also Gave that the the Bible was written in Latin and many of their Liturgies were also given in that language so it was very common for scholars to understand that This particular language and for it seemed a natural thing when they started to name plans to use a lot and that they were already using their day to day Scholarly Endeavour right so and then along came. Lineas yes eventually yes then. The names was a Swedish botanist Manassas. Actually his last name. His Swedish name was funding and like many of the scholars of his time on heat he taught Latin and he had a broad interest in science. He was trying to the medical dogs up but he received plants and animals that were brought to him by sailors by travelers and he was really fascinated to try and classify them. I'm so he would give them names in Latin but the really important thing that he did was he gave them a two part name now before. Luna's every all the names that were given to plants and animals. We're actually loan descriptions of those plants animals in lasted. That's pretty cumbersome. When you're dealing with a plant you don't want to name as eight or ten words in it What the did was he. Shorts these down to two words and we now call those toured names the dated by bills and the names that you find in the book right. You mentioned sailors a minute ago. And so this was the early Eighteenth Century. Onward was sort of the age of plant exploration. Yeah people are bringing. It wasn't just Europe where he was it was people were bringing things in from other places and there were unknown thing so different people would be communicating with people in other countries. And I guess didn't I think in the book One of the essays up front says something like one. Great Advantage of Latin is its universality that It's not the language of any one nation. Was that also part of the motivation. Absolutely nobody really speak Latin and so the language that can be used by people in in any country but some last had an advantage in the east started his work in Sweden and Sweden doesn't really have an awful big flora. It doesn't have very many different species of plants. If lemass it'd been born in Central Africa or in South America where plants were much more common much more diverse. It's entirely possible. That just would have been so confused by this great diversity. That Egos have never come up with the system that he did because he only had to work. On a small group of plants he was able to develop a system and then refined as people brought plants to in from other parts of the world so he's began in Europe but this Checks on me that he began quickly began to spread across the world as Europeans and others were exploring further afield and since it wasn't the language anyone nation. It was kind of a shared language for all of these people. There'd be excluded. Yeah yeah it didn't belong to one person so everybody could use it and today they still do If you read a botanical papers from China almost the only part that you'll be able to read if you're an english-speaking lot me is Latin names right so we were mentioned you know plants The system for naming plants and of course it was for other organisms as well and I read an essay. You wrote recently. Or maybe it's excerpted from the book Where you muse about Latin name Homo Sapiens and And how it doesn't sound very fancy compared to some of the plant names that are more elaborate but until you understand what it translates as Which is wise man? Yeah so we gave ourselves Ed very good name. Yeah we were quite modest. Fabian is the name that was given by lineas fact. Lunacies body actually remains the type specimen for the human species because when when he named humanity based on himself he will forever be remembered as the original human. These Wet Tax on consent. So he's not pressed in herbarium slide but he is the type specimen yeah. It's the todd specimen in his tomb in Sweden. So I was early on. I was when I was first. Learning from much. More scholarly individuals plant friends I was paralyzed. Know afraid to say the words out loud because they looked so difficult and I was told. Don't worry Margaret. It wasn't a spoken language. Really it was okay. Just have at it and try to pronounce stuff and and do my best which is always going to be better than a common name. So does pronunciation matter you give guidelines. I think you sort of let us off the hook and say don't worry also. Is that correct? You're absolutely correct Margaret. I always tell people all to worry about it There are purists who might adults two pronunciations for certain parts of botanical Latin. But my feeling is that I would rather people were using the names and understanding them and speaking to some rigid system appreciation You say Clemson said commodities I I think you're easily understood. Whatever the way and as I began doing this as a kid I would say names also different ways so one of the ones I used to mispronounce was the daily Jazz Amaral Kalisz then when I grew up and started speaking to people about it. I realize that everybody actually called a hammer accounts. Yes it's a subtle difference and most people understood what I was saying until I started speaking with other people. I didn't realize that there were other ways that you might say but in truth it doesn't really matter and most people will understand what you're

Five Years Later, Who Really Hacked Sony?

"Welcome to the frame. I'm John Horn five years ago. Oh just as Thanksgiving approached employs at Sony pictures logged into their computers and were greeted by this ominous message hacked by Hashtag copay over a picture of a sinister looking red skeleton. GOP reportedly stands for guardians of peace a previously unknown group now claiming credit for the hack the the hackers leaked millions of files putting confidential employee. Information and embarrassing e mails about the studios internal workings out in the Open Ben. Fritz there's an editor at the Wall Street Journal and the author of the book. The big picture the fight for the future of movies and he remembers being in the Journal. Newsroom when he heard about the hack I remember I remember reading about it online and talking to a few sources I knew what Sony and of course it I I didn't really understand the magnitude of it and how how damaging it would be that it wasn't until the next week I believe when When they started leaking all these documents and information I started to see some of the stuff that was coming out and realized? Just how serious this was for. Those who don't remember the hack was quickly connected to North Korea and Kim Jong Moons anger over the film the interview. It started Seth Rogan James Franco as a couple of TV. TV journalists who are going to interview and potentially assassinate the North Korean president. And at the time we were interviewing the screenwriter. Dan Sterling this. This is back in two thousand fourteen. You know I was at a party. On Saturday night where the per- the host was introducing me to everybody at the party. As this is the guy that brought down Sony. It was funny by that. Well the first four or five hundred times the joke was made It was funny except actually in a way. It's actually not funny to me. How was the heck essentially blamed on the movie and was that theory actually borne out after the fact? North Korea was in fact behind the hacking and Kim Jong was very very mad. That this you know American film was was was mocking him. Northwards of very poor country but they do actually have A. It's kind of very good Hacking program and He wanted to stop them from coming out and or punish Sony for having made it and he was pretty successful on both fronts. At the time the leading theory experts was there was North Korea but a lot of people around Sony. Thought it couldn't be eight or maybe it was angry at employee's rivals or something but The the FBI About a year ago concluded pretty definitively that it wasn't Korea and in fact they indicted Somebody who was part of a North korean-backed hacking team that was called the Lazarus project and was for numerous cybercrimes including the intrusion at Sony. That a lot of people forget. Is that the movie. We didn't really get released. I mean Sony was so worried about it that they pulled the release and then they kind of backtracked on that and at the time we were talking gene with a guy named James cursed he's the founder of. La's downtown independent theatre. He is in the studio talking about the movie. And this is what happens. There's been so much we were getting calls about it. My phone's ringing up. Oh it's the REP from Sony. Go ahead take it. Hi this the gym so he actually gets a call from Sony in the middle of the interview pain. Can you play the. Can you play movie in your theater. It ends up not getting getting much of an exhibition schedule at all. Does it. No it only a few hundred independent theaters briefly What happened was the hackers threatened that they were going to Bomb or cause violence at at an attack any theater that played the film and You know understandably a lot didn't wanNA play and as a result and Sony you know AH incorrectly so they weren't going to force any theater to play it even those that had contractual obligations to do it and then it was just crazy thing where a few hundred independent theaters did play it and It was also released online simultaneously by a few companies that were willing to do that. Not many people ended up seeing results. So if that was Kim Jong UN's goal he was very successful at that. Most people didn't see the film and Sony was severely damaged by the hack. So you gotta give the wind North Korea here very sadly well. Let's talk about how Sony was damaged by the hack. You spent a lot of time. I'm looking through documents. Released in the hack for part of your research and your book the Big picture the fight for the future of movies. So what did it reveal about Sony. And how did it more important reveal. How the studio had kind of lost its way right? So the hacktivists released tons of you know from the top executives at the time as well as internal documents than really sensitive financial stuff and it revealed when it comes to the interview that they had had numerous discussions about something like this happening and didn't take it seriously really. There was a lot of conflict between the top executives at the studio and they weren't just having a lot of trouble coming up with major motion picture franchises that could compete with you know the marvels marvels and the fast and furious is of the world. It was really an amazing insight into a studio that was struggling to adapt to the modern movie business. Well I'm going to ask about marvel because one of the the most remarkable pieces of information in your book is how and why Sony Refuse to pay twenty five million dollars for almost all of Marvel superheroes in the late nineties. So what did that episode say. About how Hollywood is changing and how Sony really missed the future. Yeah Hollywood You know in the late nineties. Not Rule I- franchises. The way it is now is really ruled ruled by movie stars. So Sony thought. Well we've got Adam Sandler we've got will Smith. That's that's what really is valuable. You know we're not gonNA waste our money in the reserve. It was maybe spider-man's valuable but that that's all that's all they wanted. And of course Sony horrifically miscalculated and. There's there's a Lotta stuff in the hack about Sony's attempts to to fix that mistake including trying to revive the spiderman franchise a few years ago. I think it's fair to say that in the wake of the Sony Hack back a lot of studios and a lot of companies probably try to improve their firewalls and had better. It security but do you think there's a bigger less than about Hollywood. That might be remembered from the hack. Do you think it still has an impact on the business into people still talk and think about what happened to Sony people. You know people all the time reference Sony when they when they talk about. How much sensitive stuff should we say on an email? There's a sense that there's this knowledge not to censor knowledge that email is never truly secure. And if you're not necessarily they comfortable with the world knowing about it then you probably shouldn't put it in an email if you don't have something nice to say. Don't say it at all.

What's the History of the Statue of Liberty?

"The Statue of Liberty has become such a legendary representation of New York City and America itself. It's hard to imagine a time before it found a place in the skyline it all began in the eighteen sixties when French poet and Anti Slavery activist Eduard elaborate proposed the idea of a post civil war commemoration of America's America's newfound freedoms and democracy he believed France should give a great monument a gift to the United States to celebrate both the unions victory in the civil war and and the abolition of slavery the idea resonated with a young French sculptor named Frederick August Bartholdi who'd been experimenting with large-scale Works Bartholdi started hearted drafting designs and the original goal was to complete the ambitious artistic endeavor by eighteen seventy six to mark the centennial of the American Declaration of Independence The statue that she was set to represent the goodwill between America and France. There was a little financial snag though well a big financial snag in both participating nations to raise the necessary funds for construction French government introduced everything from public fees to a fundraising lottery in the United States held auctions and benefit beatrix events and Lazarus pens the new classes for the art and literary auction to help generate money for the pedestal while all this was taking place. Bartholdi recruited did an experienced engineer to help troubleshoot structural issues with the massive sculpture enter Alexander Gustave Eiffel the man responsible for another internationally recognized architectural wonder the Eiffel Tower together with Bartholdi. I will help designed the four hundred and fifty thousand pound structure. That's about two hundred thousand kilograms and specifically specifically had a hand in planning out the Iron Pylon and secondary skeletal framework. The Statue of Liberty was finally completed in France in July of eighteen eighty four and arrived in three hundred and fifty individual pieces packed in two hundred and fourteen crates in New York Harbor in June of eighteen eighty five ten years after her original. Oh projected debut the statue of Liberty became an official New York City icon and President Grover Cleveland oversaw the official dedication ceremony on October twenty eighth of eighteen eighty six fix lady liberty herself has a full and proper name the Statue of Liberty enlightening the world. The statue's face was apparently inspired by the the face of Berkeley's mother made from iron steel and three hundred layers of hand hammered copper weighing thirty tons. Lady Liberty Herself stands approximately one hundred and eleven feet. That's thirty four meters tall. She reaches an astounding three hundred and five feet or ninety three meters. If you take her pedestal and torch into account that's the equivalent height of a twenty two story building the copper coating her is three thirty seconds of an inch thick or about two point five millimeters which happens to be the same thickness missile to American pennies placed together while the internal structure is comprised of cast iron and stainless steel as for her signature Green Hue. That's due to the natural. Oh Exhibition of that copper coating when the statue was originally completed in eighteen eighty six she had more of a copper penny tinge but over about three decades the brown hue fully oxidized to form the sea green color otherwise known as a Patina in Nineteen eighty-four. The statue got a makeover when her original torch was replaced by a new copper one covered in twenty four karat gold leaf the original torch is on display the monuments museum while the Statue of Liberty emerged from a desire to represent an alliance between America and France. Its core meaning is a mutual desire for freedom liberty for all people all over the world. It's no accident that the statue of Liberty was placed face southeast from that vantage point. She makes a perfect welcoming symbol for visitors and immigrants from her home on Liberty Island. The seven pointed crown on her head symbolizes. The seven continents em I'm seven seas and the broken shackles at her feet represent freedom from oppression. Lady Liberty possesses a few other symbols as well. She's holding a tablet in her left hand end inscribed with the date July four seventeen seventy six the date of American independence written in Roman numerals and that giant torch in her right hand. It's meant to represent represents enlightenment a fitting accessory for liberty enlightening the world as for the Lazarus poem some history experts like Robert j McNamara believe if that while Bartholdi had originally envisioned lady liberty as a symbol of America exerting its own freedom the new colossus represented America as a refuge for oppressed people seeking liberty and an understanding by people born as American citizens that had we been born elsewhere. We might be similarly seeking liberty from oppression and suffering while there may be countless interpretations dissections and Miss Readings of Lady Liberty's many possible meanings one thing is for sure. She has indeed served as America's one woman. Welcome Committee for well over a century when the US government opened a federal immigration station on Ellis Island in eighteen ninety to about twelve million immigrants were eventually processed there before receiving permission to enter the country all of whom were greeted by the sight of the Statue of Liberty nearby today a statue of Liberty. He remains a major attraction for citizens and visitors from all over the world approximately four point five million people make the pilgrimage to see her every year. One of the most popular attractions attractions is climbing up to her crown which has twenty five windows overlooking New York City and harbor. It's a strenuous climb a tight spiral staircase but visitors are rewarded with panoramic views of Brooklyn as well as original supporting iron and steel framework.

How President Trump's new immigration rule could erode the social safety net

"We're gonna hear more now about the trump administration's new rule restricting legal immigration with the change legal immigrants who use public benefits like food stamps or Medicaid will be less likely to get approval to stay in this country permanently the government is broadening the criteria in determining who is likely to become a quote public charge someone who will be largely dependent on government services and there are already signs that immigrants and even American born children maybe for going help their legally entitled to so they don't lose their status we're joined now by Tuesday Anderson she's with the children's defense fund and work directly with immigrant families in Texas who joins us on the line from Austin thanks so much for being with us my pleasure this policy changes been in the works for months now it hasn't gone into effect yet that happens October fifteenth but how have you seen it affecting immigrant families in your that your organization works with yeah as you said this is been in the works for well over a year at this point the first leaked tracks were leaked in early twenty seventeen and we've been seeing a steady increase in the amount of fear that immigrant communities experience here in Texas for sure I'm with a increase descend role Menton decrease enrollment in programs like Medicaid snap and and and a variety of other programs that are not covered under this new public charge regulation but there's insufficient information and people are just with drying even their citizen children from not from programs that they need to even children who who are American citizens because they were born here it's our are concerned and so they're they're not getting health care for them because they're afraid that they could as a family be deported that's correct here in Texas one in four children has at least one parent who is a non citizen as one point six million children so that they an enormous percentage of our population or worried about a decrease in a Texas already has incredibly high uninsured rate the highest child uninsured rate in the country and that we're only going to see that climb the we reached out to a to a mother in Austin Texas an immigrant her two kids though **** US citizens her name is Marlene she asked us that we not use her last name because of concern about her immigration status she works her husband works but they have used some public benefits to get by including Medicaid for one of our kids who is disabled but now because she's afraid to stop using food stamps as well here's part of what she told us but I mean I've read a little for me the most important thing is the health of my kids I just keep praying they don't take away Medicaid because I've already had to give up the food to be honest I feel terrible I feel powerless we should know the Texas has one of the highest rates of of participation in the food stamp program or snap but I wonder what is your message how you counseling people like Marlene but I I know that these that their families who are worried feel like they're in an impossible situation they're worried if they enroll that they'll end up you know losing their ability to stay in this country potential family separation this is a scary moment and it's understandable that people react in ways to protect themselves in this case protecting themselves feels like withdrawing from programs but we really urge families to stay enrolled this the actual impact is a very limited number of people that the rule precisely applies to those who lives legal immigrants were seeking to adjust their status there is whether or not your children are enrolled in programs whether you're a legal immigrant or not has absolutely no impact through the public charge rule on your ability to stay in this country we had Ken Cuccinelli on our program earlier this week he's acting director of the US citizenship and immigration services and I will I want to play a clip of that interview again here's his take on the new Colossus the Emma Lazarus poem at the statue of liberty tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge does he have a point it is is the US government entitled to require that immigrants to this country not be a burden on the state in his characterization of I think it his characterization is disingenuous in the first place these programs are not this is not a burden on the state these are programs that are designed to lift and support families in times of need so that their anti poverty measures and they're extremely successful anti poverty measures is abundant data indicates that people who use these programs go on to thrive more than they would have otherwise and second essay disingenuous because even if they do not use the programs there's also something called a wealth test in the rule where if they have low income they simply don't it's a it's a hard strike against their applications so if they don't use any of these programs and quote unquote stand on its own two feet you're still there still saying if you don't earn above the US median income you're not welcome here T. C. Anderson is a senior policy associate at the children's defense fund based in Texas thank you so much for your time we
