New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy checked in from the beach earlier today. You wanted to make sure that people weren't letting down their guard. And he says the beach is most of them were quite crowd lives. On NBC's Meet the press, The governor went on to remind anyone visiting New Jersey and they're coming from hot spots around the country that they need to pour into. So if folks are coming back into our state if they've been traveling to a hot spot, or they're visiting here, a CZ you also mention New York and Connecticut. We're doing this with them as well. We're asking folks to self quarantine. We have contact traces that take their information down. On. We tryto run every one of these cases to the ground, but it's mostly a personal responsibility that we're asking folks to do. The right thing. Relaxing at the shore doesn't mean relaxing the rules. NBC tens, Randy Gyllenhaal went to Atlantic City to see if People were following the mask mandate in these outdoor public places. We saw a lot of people with masks, but that notable handful who are not wearing them. So why is this an issue? We're seeing a surgeon cases nationwide? Some of it tied to the opening of indoor facility is also a lot of it coming on the heels of Memorial Day weekend. And here we are now and New Jersey has been tracking this cluster of cases linked to the shore. The concerns many of these people will bring it back to the Pennsylvania suburbs to Philadelphia and with large crowds. Masks can reduce the transmission of this virus, but the beaches are crowded. I was surprised you, and now I think people are doing a really good job of trying to social distance. No masks, but a lot of their in these tents that people bullet, so there's six feet apart, which is kind of cool. If you can find a nice spot to spread out, you'll be good. You don't have to wear a mask unless they're really people right on top e, a at least six feet distance again. And it's not just weather drawing in the people, casinos, amusement parks and arcades reopened on Thursday just before the beginning of the holiday weekend. The Borgata has not opened yet, though. Nearly monthlong protest in Philadelphia's raising concerns in the neighborhood where residents say it's attracting a lot of band behavior. Here's cable because Justin Leonard Flowers is one of the organizers of the mess protest of homeless people fighting for homeless rights that have been camped out on von Cone filled right off the Benjamin Franklin Parkway. We keep it clean. It's possible. We all help each other, but the people that live around here love so if they love it, Where is the problem? That sentiment does not ring true for dozens.

You as Your Best Healer with Rhoda Todoran

"Hello Hello Beloved. Welcome to this episode of Subtle Medicine. Podcast I have dear sister and kindred soul Rhoda door and on the show today and we talk about all the things as it relates to you as your own healer from daily purification practices. And how no that's probably dot you think it is to taking radical self responsibility for your life for your growth and what gets in the way of that and also talk about nervous system care breath. Work and more Rhoda to join is a Reiki Practitioner. Trained and conscious counseling and rebirthing breath work. She has been exploring various methods of healing and self mastery since two thousand two and continues to cultivate a mixed bag of modalities under her belt. In order to co create transformation with others besides facilitating tailored workshops locally in Los Angeles and for the yearly Spirit Weavers Gathering. She also holds space for one on one. Ricky infused rhetoric sessions is a maker online seller of handmade eco-friendly creations and is an Orrick portrait artist. And I had so much fun creating this episode for you and I know that you will really enjoy this rich conversation that road and I had so without further ado. Let's get into it all right so Rhoda is definitely a kindred spirit for sure and I'm so excited to have you on the show. Thank you for being here in key for having me. I'm excited as little okay. So we are such kindred spirits like I said and I'm so excited to get into this topic of you as your own healer and guide. That's certainly something that is near and dear to my heart and my own journey and it's really been spoken about so on this show. It's kind of the overarching theme of this whole podcast of my whole work of my whole mission in in life and my soul's purpose as well as the notion of our core loons being our source of freedom and ultimately coming until place of self mastery and total sovereignty. Kind of where? We're headed today and I'd really love to begin with when you say to somebody. You are your own healer. What are you meaning? And what are you ultimately hoping that they get from this because for a lot of people it's like a radical notion that they can't wrap their minds around or it's something that they may believe in but it's like a total pipedream and they don't even just understand where to start and what that means. What does that mean to you? Like all journeys on this spiritual path Or the journey of life in general. It's it's at Spiro. So there's the very bottom layer of like you are the author of your life basically and that's a little bit more accessible to people because it's in books it's in movies. There's that hero that at the end of the day kind of semons his or her energies and becomes full breath of himself or herself And once you start on that path little by little I think the end goal is full sovereignty. Ray You're basically you know full blonde blown out thinking for yourself in all areas aways from like like. I've been rereading a Leonard Ores Book. Which is my lineage intensive rebirthing and he talks about the death urge and how for. Yawns eons of years ago people lived hundreds and even thousands of years old. So there's this belief that we have that we actually have to die so it's going that breath fall breath of sovereignty where you have your own belief about what you and your body can do and what your spirit can do in your soul and then obviously say there's the whole breath in the middle where it's that whole journey. That's just true for you and it can be anything from. I know personally speaking. There's that point in every person's life in this journey where It's almost like there's a couple of different deck that happened. Ego Death of a child re parenting yourself. So there's the death of your parents in your life as a role Caretaker role and then and the larger sense of that after that is the death of God and how you are becoming your own God and you tap into your own internal resources power and and that is part of that whole goal to sovereignty so when I say that to someone it's just whatever hits them really but my ultimate goal and why love breath work is that You know you're using your own Nothing else you don't need vamps music. You don't need like incense or oils. Whatever you just do it when you can really. I do it in my car in the shower before I came on line here. I just to get the jitters yards doing Steak grow toning or shocker toning. And that's just braving making sounds with your breath so it's really any thing that you have right now right here. Are All the tools that you have everything inside of you is all you need. There's nothing fancy know by now or will. This offer will expire type the situation. It's just really where you are and just leaning into everything that's going on where you are right now right here. So God smoothly

What is Code, to Our Evolved Mind?

"A philosophical discussion can be had about the role of code and our lives. But I I want to set up some backdrop and a little bit of theory for this exploration. Today for the sake of today's thought experiment will accept the idea that humans have evolved over some very long period of time. The length doesn't matter all that much other than to say it's very long to optimize for survival and that the vast majority of that period was spent in a world that looked very different from ours today. This idea that the human brain has evolved for a world that seems to kind of Lurk beneath the surface of our culture and all of our kind of social practices today and that. It's actually suppressed by our civilized instincts and the societal norms. This isn't a novel concept this idea. That Lord Lord of the flies style somewhere lurking underneath all of this. There's more primal instincts but this concept is useful for confronting some hard questions about how our brains perceive that code and that brings me to my next point for the sake of this discussion. We'll talk about two distinct concepts the brain and the mind now. This is absolutely a physical philosophical minefield in I want to be careful here in suggesting a dualist mindset as if those two concepts are truly distinct when I refer to the mind or the brain in this episode you might substitute the concepts of conscious and sub-conscious thought we're essentially talking about the raw processing of information which is what the brain might be doing versus the meaning making of that information. Which is what the intangible mind or consciousness might be doing the thinking about that information that you've processed is that meaning making on the one hand our brain processes information in that sub-conscious realm constantly sometimes without our explicit consent. This is how we can accidentally convert. You know cell phone into a gun or a stick into a snake. This is particularly true for things that we see as threats but on the other hand we dream up our own realities in our mind intentionally. We imagined objects or situations that don't really even exist and sometimes even can't exist our brains in some interesting backward. Fashion are subject to this kind of sensory input as well what we imagine. We process in many ways as if it was real even. If it isn't a short dive into Google can give you some more scientific background on this particularly if you look for the idea that our consciousness itself is a reproduction of the output of that raw processing of data around us. In other words our mind is actually making up what it thinks. Our brain is processing is experiencing so if we are re projecting actual reality and it certainly seems plausible that are imagined realities could be processed as if they were real and this is exactly what research shows. And it's how we can have things like memory substitution. We remember events from our childhood as if they happen us but it turns out they happened to a close family member in. This happens because years we tell that story over and over or that story's told to us over and the actual memory begins warp as we replay that over and over kind of like a VHS tape that's been played too many times instead of getting scratches on the film. You're replacing characters. But I want to get us back on track here out of that philosophical realm about consciousness instead talk about how all of this relates to how we deal with code when we encounter it. Misses OBVIOUSLY PRETTY COMPLEX? So with this complex backdrop. Let's talk about how this ancient brain of ours in our modern context and frankly kind of confused. Mind trying to bridge the GAP BETWEEN THOSE TWO. How we can bring code into the picture? We're going to talk about that. Chance encounter right after we talked about. Today's sponsor winnowed one of the amazing things about developing expertise is that it often starts small. It may even start as something fun. Play as an engineer. You probably know by now that we as a community of people take play very seriously and playing around with some code can lead to some really important outcomes both for the industry and for your own career. And so if you don't have the proper play ground to actually test your ideas out. You can be easily disadvantaged. Now howdy make good playground. You start small but then you make it easy to scale up. And that's exactly what Leonard. Does Leno's plans start at five dollars a month and they scale all the way up to Super Production Services basically think.

Cuomo's inaction cost Leonard Carter his life

Cuomo's inaction cost Leonard Carter his life

"For most of his time as governor. I mean long before this pandemic New York Governor Andrew. Cuomo has had a callous indifference to incarcerated in his blatant refusal to use his clemency powers now in throughout all of his terms is but one small bit of proof of this not dedicate in. My Book was actually supposed to come out. Yesterday in my heart is still broken. And it's not out it's small potatoes in this pandemic. It's now coming out in August but I dedicate nearly an entire chapter in my new book to showing how impossibly difficult it's been across the years to try to get Andrew Cuomo to even pass tiny measures for justice reform. He hates them. He's an old school tough-on-crime war on drugs. War On the hood type of Democrat his father who was governor before him was the same way too and for years. We all New Yorkers all knew that Cuomo was going to run for president in this current election cycle. He telegraphed it for all New Yorkers and everybody following politics to see it was obvious but here in New York his approval rating and popularity was so low that he regularly polled worse than other leading candidates in his home state and once it was clear that he likely wouldn't Win New York or anywhere else. He quietly bowed out of the running. An at the root of New Yorkers frustration with Cuomo has always been his complete in action for justice reform in many other progressive policies. He's a moderate now. He does hold good. Press conferences in those press conferences in the middle of this pandemic have helped his approval ratings but his actual policies on so many things are as terrible as ever in fact during this pandemic some of his policies are worse none more than his absolutely cold hearted approach to incarcerated men and women all over New York while the state has become the epicenter of the corona virus. Lynyrd Carter Ness a name that I want you to know. Leonard Carter was one of at least three hundred forty four different New Yorkers that had actually been granted parole weeks or even months ago but was still incarcerated. He had been granted parole but was still behind bars. Most of them most of the three hundred and forty four incarcerated New Yorkers who were granted parole are still behind bars today. Some have been released but most haven't every single activist injustice organization in the city and all over the state have begged Cuomo to release these men and women. We begged CUOMO to release everybody. That has less than six months left on their sentence and Leonard. Carter was at the top of that list and I mean that literally actual list of names of people who should have been released from prison to save their lives and to keep them from dying. Those lists were given to Cuomo Leonard. Carter was on all of those list. He had been granted parole already. For God's Sake. Why didn't Cuomo release some faster question because just two weeks ago? We now know Leonard. Carter contracted the corona virus in jail in died. After serving a thirty year sentence. The man was weeks away from serving his term and had all ready been granted parole. Why did CUOMO NOT RELEASE HIM? What's the justification for ignoring our pleas for the past month as other governors? Who aren't even in the epicenter of the corona virus. Like Andy Bashir in Kentucky. As they use their clemency power in commutation powers to save lives. What New Yorkers know is that Cuomo is just being Cuomo? This is how he always acts toward incarcerated people. He is unbothered in his press conferences. When he gets pressed on why he's doing so little he plays dumb or avoids really answering the questions and I think the root of this is actually much more nefarious. He's a former prosecutor. He literally used to work in the District Attorney's office. He doesn't really believe in our reforms he doesn't really believe in our pleas for help and he knows damn well and he knew damn well that people with days or weeks left on their sentences he knew they would die. New York's jails and prisons if they weren't released and Leonard is not the only person who died under these exact same circumstances. Cuomo DOESN'T CARE. He hasn't been caring and it just cost. Leonard Carter his life.

"All right. Thank you so much for making it here today. We've been looking forward to speaking with you so I guess maybe we could just start with you telling us a little bit about your background and where you grew up. Thanks Ron and Joe. So much for having me on pleasure to be here. I grew up in Sydney in a fairly nice suburb. You know I didn't really want for anything and I moved to Melbourne about ten years ago and finally my mom used to practice IAGO. I remember memories of sort of lying on a per format in the living room doing funny things and I thought it was really boring and he. We are so my partner's actually English and so we sort of visit England every year or so. We go and see my family in Sydney every year or a couple times a year we can and we're about to move to England so that's a big so I know you said that you watched your mother to Yoga. Yeah it was really boring. What actually turned you around there. It's isn't it? I think he's sort of something. Might be right in front of you and it's not until you're in the right space or ready to receive whatever that is. Yeah I mean is to go along with attain to the yoga classes at the local kind of Rixon all just to spend time together but yeah in honesty. I thought it was quite boring. And then many's lytle. I came to your in a funny way because quite active I used to run a lot and do triathlons. And that's hard on the body. I was wandering taking up your your pilots for a while. But it's one of those things that you put off and actually my partner and I will planning our wedding in England also. We caught up with this guy. Who's a chef? He's English and he was dividing his time. Between England. Summa and Melvin muscle the so we caught up with him at a cafe in Fitzroy. Would you believe and he brought his partner and so we're planning our wedding in England and she said all. I'm actually yoga teacher and I teach around the corner. And this was Gertrude Street studio and so we decided that at a winning it might be a nice thing to have some younger classes because we had a small wedding with all our family and friends all staying together in a house and so we had yoga classes so that was my first sort of experiences an adult at my wedding the day before the the day of my wedding and I loved her and so when we came back. I thought this is really something I want to explore. And I've been pretty much in a monogamous relationship with the studio since then so that would have been about five just over five years. Yeah so I'd say I'm fairly new to yoga for someone who's a teacher heard newel. Dp A better introduction to just seeing all of your loved one useful. Celebratory way when you're about to move into this new phase of your life totally and it was pretty hilarious too because we had I think my dad and my partners mom and onto your uncle practice also sixty seven year olds by now. We had young kids running in and so really it just sort of teaches you. Mindfulness and acceptance and kindness. And things like that so yeah it was a moment. I think back on quite a lot. You know what a profound sort of moment in my life. Yeah in which she. She passed away about seven years ago. Yeah so I I think I you know as we all sort of failed that we're becoming parents a little bit as we get older and yeah I do do think only about a thing that she would really love that. I'm practicing and I've discovered that and it's a big part of my life so yeah I can imagine her thinking that like. Yeah that's right so since you found this love of Yoga. Have you found any hitches? Yeah I mean mostly in Melvin I would say Sheshona Arnstein. She was the wife of the chef who first introduced us. And so I've practiced with her for a bit at gertrude straight. And I guess a lot of the teachers I resonate with a vice gotree straight in Fitzroy and I sort of played around with a stronger practice but yeah for me. Because I'm quite fiery and Steven. I found that a softer more gentle practices better for me so I was sort of resonate with a lot of the trauma. Informed teaches a few had on the show so like Joe. Buick may lie. Alice Hope Day. Who's now in Berlin and Hannah Institute Street Studio and I guess I'd also say that more recently. I find that I'm friends with a lot of my teachers. So yeah a lot of my friends. I find them winning from constantly. Physical practice or meditation or sound practice as well and speaking of sound practice. I know that you have a real love of kitten. Yes how did you? How did that develop? Yeah it's funny. I used to play piano when I was a kid that I never really read music so I sort of got to a certain point and I always love singing and I wouldn't say I was a particularly amazing on it but I would love to do it and I think a lot of us remember seeing at Church you know. My family went really religious but I didn't mind going to church and I used to actually choose to Gar as a teenager so I could participate in singing which I find quite funny looking back because I'm not really religious. Yeah and so I. I've been practicing yoga and I'd noticed a few teachers would sometimes sing chanting. Mantra or one of my teachers may lie. Would sometimes have a little organ harmonium gold and seen in Jovana but I always thought it was nice but it didn't blow me away until I was doing teacher training not so much to teach bought more that I had these thirst for knowledge and I. I found you couldn't really. I couldn't satisfy my need through. Normal classes meant so. I thought I'd do a teacher training purely to learn as much as good and my life was one of the teachers so we had four amazing humans on that teaching tame and and so we went mantras and the meaning and about the daddies and it was a timer is probably quite role and yeah I just completely fell in love with it. It was quite funny because I didn't really know much about it and singing songs in Sanskrit in Indian and so you know the literal meaning all of the time but yeah after the teacher training I basically went and bought a harmonium with an idea to teach myself and it was pretty clunky from the first year was pretty clunky. So it's probably been about two years now that I've been playing. That background with piano must have helped. Maybe a tiny bit but not a huge amount. I think if you know if you know music theory and you can read music would that yeah I mean I have a different story to a lot of people who lead kids on. Because a lot of people might have lived in an Ashram or had an experience like that where they've been surrounded by people in that way whereas I the spock was ignited and then I sort of decided to discover to be myself and self taught forbid which was. Yeah as a bit clunky. So now I have an amazing teacher just enter. I do voice in some harmonium. Sort of licenses and afloat take jaw and yeah it's just accelerated my my winning. Yeah and saw I. I have a few people that I play with regularly. And we play around Melvin And it's a joy it's really like an amazing community different ages and abilities and yeah just to cycle back to something that you mentioned. Elia. I'm really interested in this because some teaches really. Don't go into the meaning of the chance at all and other teachers really explore that side of it and see it as a really important part of the practice. Where are you at on that continuum? Yeah for me. I really like to know what it is that I'm seeing about and the meaning and I find that quite important to convey to people so I tried to try to explain the meaning if it's in a class well more often it's in a kitten so there is an opportunity to do that and I think it changes the way that you save it and that you participate in it because you actually can. That's something for you to sort of ponder while your singing together and saw. Yeah it's also it's just sort of a nice story to have for people to to share with other people and and also most of the chance. I have been shed to me by teacher or by a friend and so I also think it's important to honor that where it's come from. I guess also in respect to the tradition of yoga and yes walk. I'm a white woman sharing these devotional practices. And the way I can sort of justify the whack and best be really authentic about that is to share everything. That's been taught to me or everything I know about that with other people. Sanskrit is a funny language because it doesn't translate literally so it's more like it can be described more like feeling that's translated through the vibration of the sounds so sometimes people will have a slightly different translation or interpretation of

"To the graphic nature of this king pins crimes listener discretion is advised. This episode includes discussions of murder and assault that some people may find offensive. We advise extreme caution for children under thirteen. Haji bug show hated helicopters. They flew overhead constantly a never ending reminder of the American invaders. He couldn't even enjoy a cup of tea without it being interrupted by their buzzing he wondered where the choppers were going. This time the. Us military had been daily nuisance in Afghanistan for a decade but lately the foreigners had started targeting bogged chose heroin labs in the mountains. They were blowing them up one by one destroying his equipment and terrorizing his workers. It was costing him a fortune. The noise of the chopper blades was deafening and only kept getting louder. That's when Bob Show realized the helicopters weren't passing by. They were coming for him. I'm Howell argued and I'm Kate Leonard and this is kingpins every week. We journey inside the ranks of Organized Crime Rings From Street gangs to mafiosos to understand how a kingpin or Queen Pin Rises to the top of the underworld and why they fall as we follow the lives of infamous crime bosses will explore how money and power changed them and how it changed the community around them. This episode is about Haji bogged show who ran one of the most prolific drug trafficking rings in the world from the nineteen nineties. Two thousand nine at par cast. We're grateful for you our listeners. You allow us to do what we love. Let us know how we're doing reach out on facebook and Instagram at par cast and twitter at Parkas network? And if you enjoy today's episode the best way to help us is to leave a five star review wherever you're listening. It really does help us. On June twelfth. Two Thousand Twelve seventy year old. Haji bug show stood before a judge in Washington DC. He was a long way from his home in Afghanistan and he might never be going back. Bob Show had just been convicted for drug distribution and narcoterrorism. His lawyers had advised him not to testify at the trial. They didn't want him to incriminate himself but at his sentencing hearing bogged show refused to stay silent. He ranted about the witnesses who had been called to testify against him. They were liars and criminals. According to Bob Show. He called himself an honorable man. A simple merchant like his father and his grandfather before him Cho- may have thought of himself as a merchant but it would be hard to describe his lifestyle as simple by his own admission bog. Joe Owned Property in both Afghanistan and Pakistan more than one person described his home in Afghanistan as a castle with a column lined. Main residence a guesthouse. Electricity and running water luxurious accommodations. Compared to his neighbors most people in bog chose. Providence earned a living by farming raising livestock or trading in lumber bog chose spent his days pudding together. Heroin deals in two thousand six his operation produced and sold over one hundred and twenty thousand kilograms of heroin about twenty percent of the world's total heroin supply that year in a single year bogged show earned two hundred and fifty million dollars making him one of the world's richest people and one of the world's poorest countries. The question is how did he get there? It's a difficult question to answer. Thanks to Afghanistan's chaotic past. Most of bog chose life is a complete mystery until the nineteen nineties when his international heroin operation seemed to emerge from the dust fully formed. But a little bit of history can help us fill in the blanks. Joe was born in nineteen forty two in the Non Gerhard province of eastern Afghanistan later in life bog show earned the title. Haji which is an honorific given to Muslims who have completed the pilgrimage to Mecca when bog show was growing up. Afghanistan was locked in a struggle between urban elites who wanted to modernize the country and rural tribal groups who preferred to keep their traditional ways of life in Nangahar bog. Cho- lived among a fiercely independent tribal community that resisted any intrusion. Bog Show called his people frontier. People the Western press had called the area ungovernable comparing it to the wild west militant groups from al-Qaeda to the Taliban to Aycell have all found refuge. Nangahar is remote mountains and complex cave systems in nineteen forty-five when bog show was just three years. Old Afghantistan banned opium production. As part of the government's modernization efforts after World War. Two new diplomatic relationships were forming around the globe and Afghanistan. DidN'T WANT TO BE LEFT BEHIND. The ban would show the world that Afghanistan was willing to comply with Western norms including drug control regulations but harvesting poppies was a part of daily life. In rural Afghanistan. Peasants made cooking oil from poppy seeds. They burn the flower. Stocks is firewood. They made soap from the Ash and the harvested opium from the flowers for us as a medicine. Banning opium was seen as a tone deaf insult to their traditions. The law was largely ignored as long as the government could point to the opium Ban as a talking point. They didn't bother actually enforcing it. Neighboring countries like Pakistan India and Iran all pass stricter opium bands over the next few decades and they took their regulations seriously as a result opium smuggling out of Afghanistan skyrocketed in the nineteen sixties. By the time bog Joe was in his early twenties. In the mid sixties drug trafficking rings had sprung up all along the border smuggling was so pervasive. It was hardly seen as illegal or immoral years later. After bogged Joe was arrested. His younger brother admitted he was a smuggler. That's true everyone in our area is Boncho came from a relatively well off family. He inherited property from his father. Who was a wooden merchant and used it to start several businesses gas stations. An electronics store an auto import company. But at some point he turned his focus to drug smuggling perhaps he saw it as a business opportunity to lucrative to pass up. He was right about that. It was a lucrative industry and completely resistant to political turmoil. Things didn't slow down at all when the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan in nineteen seventy nine. The Soviet invasion was meant to reinforce Afghanistan's new communist government which had won control in a coup the previous year Afghan rebel fighters who call themselves the mujahideen violently resisted the new communist government and the Soviet Army. The war devastated the country. Soviet troops targeted rural farmers burning fields and destroying irrigation canals but poppies were durable crop. They kept flourishing even in the midst of war so thousands of farmers switch their crop of choice to poppy flowers. Opium production increased exponentially and drug traffickers. Had A rebel army ready and willing to protect them Mujahideen. Commanders forged an alliance with drug traffickers including Haji bog show the invested money and resources into smuggling operations and in return smugglers gave the mujahedeen cut of their profits which they used to fund their fight against the Communists then Mujuhedeen funding source to the United States. Government almost immediately after the Soviets invaded Afghanistan. The C. I. A. began secretly arming and financing the rebel forces in their fight against communism the US was willing to ignore the fact that some of those funds and guns were making their way to drug traders. The increasing flow of drugs was actually a bonus hero and started falling into the hands of the Soviet troops. Soon enough the Soviets were busy shooting up. Instead of spreading the red menace of communism a decade after their invasion the Soviets decided the war was too costly to maintain. They finally withdrew from Afghanistan in nineteen eighty nine but by then an entire drug industry had blossomed from the burnt fields. Relationships had been made trafficking routes had been established and huge opium bazaars had sprung up throughout the country in the early nineteen eighties. One of these opium markets opened in Gani Kill about twenty miles from the city of Jalalabad. It's sprawled across several blocks like a giant flea market with over five hundred dusty shops and booze but instead of selling antiques and goods merchants here sold opium. Throngs of people pushed their way through the bazaar every day among them was Haji bogged show by the end of the Soviet war in nineteen eighty nine bog. Show was nearly fifty years old. And one of Afghanistan's richest drug smugglers. Although he wasn't yet making the nine figure deals he would later be known for some of Bug chose contemporaries were notorious for their decadent lifestyles infamous Afghan kingpin. Haji Khan was known for his extravagant alcohol. Fueled parties a big taboo in a traditionally Muslim country. But bonk showed didn't have that reputation. He was a family man. He had six brothers two wives and sixteen children. He ran his drug operation like any other family. Business is brother. Bandeau oversaw drug labs where chemist manufactured heroin from opium paste. Bog chose son. Soochow Goule handled the money and recordkeeping bogged show employed about two hundred fifty workers. Even if they weren't blood related bog show wanted them all to feel like they were part of the family. He kept them close. Both emotionally and physically. Most of his servants lived full time on his family's compound bog. Joe Even built a house right next to his own for his top chemist farm on Shah bog chose favorite servant. Cari later said I was not his real son but when it came to food clothes and other things I was treated the same. As his son's bag show was a hands on manager he visited bazaars personally to ensure the opium he purchased was top quality. He then sent the opium to his drug labs which were nestled high in the mountains of Nangarhar thousands of feet above ground level once the chemist extracted heroin from the opium. The drugs were brought to bog chose compound where bog show directed his workers to wrap it in. Plastic stamped with bog chose signature seal to his clients. That seal meant that they were getting the best. Most of the heroin was loaded into trucks and smuggled into Pakistan bog show regularly met with Afghan police and Border Patrol officials for a price. He could make sure that none of his couriers ever ran into any trouble as they moved. Caravans of heroin across Afghanistan's route a one for smaller orders. Bod Show had an even more careful strategy. The couriers wouldn't eat for days. Before their task. Their work required empty stomachs. The heroine was put into capsules and when the time came they swallowed them washing them down with glasses of milk in the early nineteen nineties by. Chou built a second home base in Pakistan. He had dual citizenship which wasn't uncommon. The line between the countries was seen as arbitrary among the tribal communities who traded freely and spoke a common language this second home by Joe and his family a place to escape the new wave of violence and disorder. That was already sweeping across Afghanistan.

Behind The Scenes Of The Linode Object Storage Service

"Today I'm interviewing will Smith about his work on building object storage for the Lenovo Cloud Platform. So we'll can you start by introducing yourself? Yeah I've been with winnowed for about five years. Now I originally worked on our transition from the hyper visor to KVM which was a super exciting project I since then moved on to working on the new API that we launched two years ago. And after that I was moved out of the Storage Project. And do you remember how you first got involved in the area of data management? Well Leno does a lot of data management what with hosting virtual private servers and everything but specifically with object storage. They already had a prototype. Developed of an object storage cluster. Based on Seth and they just wanted to bring a team of villagers into productized which is kind of where I came in. And so you mentioned that you started off with this steph prototype wondering if you can just give a bit of an overview of the current state of what you have available for object storage on the Leonard Platform and some of the motivating factors for building it out and managing it yourself rather than building an integration with

Falcons could field an offense with 11 first-round draft picks

"So we had a truck a couple of signings by the Atlanta Falcons over the weekend right to pick up tight end Hayden Hurst from the Baltimore Ravens and they also acquired look Kwan Treadwell a former number one pick for the Minnesota Vikings yeah as the Atlanta falcons roster currently stands right now on offense alone just on offense they have a Levin former first round picks all of these former first round picks quarterback Matt Ryan first round pick Todd Gurley who sign when he was released first round pick Julio Jones first round pick Calvin Ridley first round pick the Quantrill first round pick Hayden Hurst first round pick left tackle Jake Matthews first round pick left guard James carpenter first round pick center Alex Mack former first round pick Chris Lindstrom the right guard former first round pick and right tackle Caleb McGary also that he first started his first round eleven is incredible let them all eleven of them a former first round pick I mean there's no way that's ever happened before right I can't believe that what ever but here's the real question if you had to redraft everyone of these players how many would be former first rounder this okay because I think this is fair Lidstrom McGarry and carpenter I've always been really what one or two years no it's been really since two thousand eleven okay yeah so let's remind me Gerry I think you were taken off or taken them out yeah okay so all of the other nine how many would be redrafted as a first round what's what's going on it's not right absolutely no question that runs for Todd Gurley no yeah I I would say no I would sit well I would say no one quite frankly his a conversation about the value of the position in general could also affect the new with him that was the thing coming out of college yes I look he has fifty eight rushing touchdowns over his first whatever seasons and all the other ones are either in the hall of Famer going let me just say six are we saying first rounder today or go back to the beginning again it would re drawing back to the beginning again because I'm currently the way Todd Gurley came out I mean would you not still take him in the first one that's the question now right are you going to pay for that kind of production from a running back anymore we saw Christian McCaffrey Leonard for net like there's been plenty examples of even a legal or not re signing a big second contract drafting a great one of the first round can still benefit you a lot okay I'm just trying to get to it you know is that what they've done in their right career does that mean where are the first roll worthy to me the girly thing is to your point he had a knee injury coming out of college and right when they signed with the red sign that long term deal with they're trying they got out of now then he was going to be chronic so to me the top group member he was the first one that airports reset the market for running backs and it turned out no he just re establish the old line of thinking but that first three years of production would you that would you spend a first round pick on that because we saw that rand's office how much in common now it always goes like this with the running game but in combination with an offense of line that did really well what you brought into what worth over would you pay for that as the foundation of your off I'm beginning to go the Melkite around here that I'm not sure running back as well because Melvin Gordon was in that same draft and Melvin Gordon is on his team I got an extreme I think that's the biggest conversation we could take out of this is the running back position record number mellow one point eighty never take a running back in the first Rana I wonder for we're slowly but surely going back to it I mean there was a contract a couple years ago with the first running back off the board was late second round out of Tennessee and I think we're going back to that after a bevy running backs being taken so we were definitely in on Matt Ryan yes we're out on Todd Gurley a legit is amazing looking back at Todd Gurley's draft class there's not a lot of got like if you're talking about reworking the top ten Todd Gurley might be the most wealthy in that group maybe outside of Amari Cooper yeah we can we can have that discussion later because that's in it read graphic I think is always fast and you have to wait a certain amount of time Julio Jones know quite well right Calvin Ridley first round too early again I think it's too early last year what he had sixty three receptions okay just under nine hundred okay seven touchdowns I would mean he also can't account for how bad that team ask me yes or no right now I'd say yes but I still think it might be too early Hayden Hurst no not because look they they took marketers later in the draft in the third round he clearly became the tight end of Baltimore which made Hayden Hurst by the way has taken in the first row before Lamar Jackson R. Jackson for Lamar starting you know tight on that team right now marketers you said right Hayden Hurst also dealt with some injuries and stuff there too that's okay in perfect sample size and when you have a guy come on like marquetry who could predict that the way that offense ended up of what he was the Mackey award winner a what he was coming home with one truck will no no Jake Matthews yes I think so I think so I think so do not I meet yeah yeah I mean yes he's been there he's been there is a second contract I also wrote a like doesn't miss a lot of games he's he's dependable yeah I think that's what it our printer are probably not I mean he's he's been a guy that's been in the league for nine years now dependable guy but we're talking about first round right you know I mean when you're twenty four we'll talk about for sure we're talking about top ten picks like a lot yeah yeah yeah I I'd probably lean toward no on that as well yeah yeah Alex Mack yeah absolutely yeah yeah and then the other than what we remember and I think Lidstrom would be headed in that direction yeah kill the guy who's more reach last year get killed the one I have questions about obviously we know the health concerns that existed before the draft earning a hard issue that he had had to deal with early in this time oxygen so there's a lot to hash out with those two but just I mean blows off the page when you just read that number the every single hundred dinners with that crew yeah what eleven Ryan still got its still on that ride to reach for the paycheck first but everyone else has to at least go for their wallets and act like there's also a common I do with you know with my dad so you got rid you got Ridley help you got got this R.

Music streaming may actually be falling because of Coronavirus

"All right. Let's talk a little bit about listening to music. You'd think maybe with a lot more people staying home more people would be listening to music and you'd be wrong courts notes that Italy's spotify users averaged eighteen point three million total streams of the top one hundred songs per day in February two thousand nineteen but since a national quarantine was announced march nineth total streams of the top. One hundred songs have not top fourteen. Point four million. That's just under four million less. There was a twenty three percent drop between March third and March seventeenth in the United States. Total spotify streams of the top. Two hundreds fell to seventy seven million on March seventeenth the lowest total so far this year. Uk France and Spain have also seen drops. Now maybe that when you're shut inside you just go for less popular songs flattening the curve if you will But it it does seem like maybe people. Just don't listen to as much music right now. Because they're not no situation. Yeah it's it's the commuting has dropped you know people are maybe going on. Few were outdoor exercise. Long form stuff where you listen to music. Definitely the case with me. I don't not any good reason but I don't listen to a lot of streaming music at home but I do when I'm out and about so my own use has gone down quite a bit. I'm just waiting for the surge. Unlike Leonard Cohen playlists. Or you know semi depressed. Folksy songwriters. You forgot how much you liked until you were really depressed about. Not being able to leave. Your House. Nbc surgeon playlists. Nobody's ever heard of. We've seen an extreme spike in. Everybody knows Yeah I do think this is an interesting thing because you would think like. Oh more people with more time. Maybe means more music but they're doing other things they're watching videos playing video games and the music is like you say Sarah for for going outside and hanging out with fewer people are doing or in your car when you're driving to work which you're people are doing that so yeah.

Learning Visiolinguistic Representations with ViLBERT w/ Stefan Lee

"Art of one. I am here at nervous. Twenty nineteen and I am with Stephan. Lee Stephan is an assistant professor at Oregon State In the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Stephan. Welcome to the toy cast. Yeah thanks for inviting me absolutely. Let's talk a little bit about your background before. We dive into some of the many things that you're presenting here at the conference. Sure sure so I DID MY PHD at Indiana University. And most of my work there was sort of on the core computer vision side. So how do I use computer vision to help? Scientists do various tasks zoo. Lots of it was replacing. What would otherwise be human labeling tasks? Okay I I get bored quickly. So in my post DOC extended out to vision in language. So I'm thinking about Problems where an agent tasked to reason about visual input and linguistic input so it s not only understand the visual content to express that understanding by creating language or responding to language things like that and his visual question answering one of the tasks that is interesting. You Yep so. Visual question answering. I've got a number of pieces of work on topic. Okay there's also things like captioning or doing digital dialogues are multi-round Qa. Stylings dialogues. Okay and then. Lately I've been extending out to task that not only have vision language but also some form of action so he's our Language tasks situated and embodied contexts. Where an agent test to see and talk and move to accomplish some sort of task and are the agents that were referring to here they simulated agents mostly. They're saying Leonard agents but some recent work has sort of extended out of the simulator into physical platforms with some surprising success. Okay what's an example of a platform that you're using for simulation over the robotic further robotics on the body Saturday What's the kind of dimensionality? How Complex are they? Yeah so most of the workers even working on so far has been on this pie robot platform which is something that Facebook has recently released. Which is wonderful. Low cost robotic platform local. But I think they call it. That has a really nice interface for machine learning practitioners. Oh really so I have not come across. It's worth looking out so it's You know you can say from tyrod. Import robot and then robot go forward one meter and that sort of the level of the interface. So I'm real machine learning persons robot for things like navigation in grasping so here at the conference. You've got a number of presentations that you're and posters you're involved in Will talk about One of them in most detail. Vilbert about what are some of the others that you've been focusing on sure? So this year I'm presenting number things. He said One of them is one of these embodied tasks so it's a work on what's called vision in language navigation where an agent is sort of spun never before seen environment and given a natural language navigation instruction something like go down the hall turn left at the Wolf head and the Stop on the third bedroom the one with the yellow bedspread or something like this so instructions or this mix of trajectory clues like go forward and turn left and Works and visual grounding landmarks. Knuckling and then the goal is to have an agent that can reason about all of this while actually following that path in simulated world. What are the prior that the agents bringing into this environment? Does it already know what a wolf head is or is it need to figure that out from training so it's a tricky question A Lot of vision in language and we'll touch on this in Vilbert Sort of starts from a set of pre-trade image features instead of pre-trading language features what it doesn't have as a sense of grounding so it may be able to represent a wolf head visually and it may understand the word. Wolf head but the connection between the visual incarnation of a wolf head and then the term isn't there that you expect to learn during the specific task though in Vilbert. The point is that we're trying to P- retrain grounding itself and so you've got the agents paper Yup and then there's Vilbert and then I'm also giving a talk at a workshop on emerging communication. So if you have a agents that interact to perform some task and you want them to share information between each other or communicate How could you make that communication protocol? More interpretive Humans and one way to do that is to make them actually use sort of discreet symbols. So somebody that looks like a word More or less. That doesn't necessarily have that meaning and then the talk is about. How do we make these these communication protocols? Morte now this whole field was kind of. I don't know if popularizes the right word or Villain is a few years ago with the facebook Those two agents that said to develop their own coded language. Yeah Similar kind of vein of of research. Here Yeah except for the fact that we we want understand what the code is right. Yeah Yeah that was the dealer Nodia. Paper had some similar similar goals. Yeah Yeah And so it's an innocence. Kind of merging the field or the desire for explain ability into this emergent communication work. Yeah Yeah and it If you're thinking about building agent that eventually will work with the human communications up being a big part of that. That's how we organize ourselves so making sure that we understand what agent is saying What we're saying is sort of one of the goals my research but not constrained necessarily by English not necessarily an agent to come up with its own stuff if we can map it back some space that has human like structure. That would be fine right so rather than having a unique unique word for the concept of Red Ball would prefer the agent to have a word for red that modifies. A word for ball. So even if it's not English it's something we can map back to a way that we understand How language works so Vilbert What's over all about? Yeah so I hit on this a little bit ago but billboards about learning the associations between the visual incarnation of concept and the linguistic Concept and this is sort of tricky because most people instantly hallucinate the visual part of something whenever they hear the word. When it's when I said Wolfe had. I assume a lot of people immediately. Thought of like game of thrones type of things And there was some visual concept that got brought to mind but the machines don't buy automatically have you can you can learn language and just in a linguistic context and in fact that's what most of natural language processing does is just learning based on its association with other words likewise on the visual side. You're just sort of learning to represent some sparse set of classes and those classes often relate to specific nouns. But they don't have a sense of closeness right so there's new idea that the feature for a cat should be close to the future for Tiger because they're related linguistically or uncertain taxonomy so the point of Vilbert is to try to learn these associations between vision and language directly and this is something we usually call visual grounding out of worker. And so what's the the general approach there presumably in involves Burt transformer former models the name. Yeah so if you look at the Bert models and some of the big successes in NLP. It's these large self supervised tasks so they take a large language Corpus and they learn certain little things to build supervision from unlabeled data so they'll their mascot a few words and have them re- predict it based on the other linguistic context other Alaska sentence follows another sentence in text. And what we find analogues for that in the language space. So there's this data set called conceptual captions. That came out recently. Which is this massive out. On the order about three million Image text pairs where they just found images online. That had all text so some human had provided alternative text for people usually for people who visual impairment You might interact with us by melting over image and it produces some some tex tag. They did some processing on top of that. But is this sort of Webley supervised state where they scraped office down and now the images filtered for kind of symbol simple kind of image types of or are they just raw whatever's out there across the board from everything from flicker style images to pictures of maps. And things like that so it's pretty pretty broad but that's sort of where we start our data source and we perform similar self supervised trainings where we're masking out. Certain amid parts of the image just random and then asking it to reconstruct those given the rest of the image and language and likewise were asking does the sentence match with this image or not or masking out parts of the language and having reconstruct from the image on the text. So we're designing this sort of self supervised multi modal task with this large weekly supervised status. And what we get at the end is a model built some representations that bridge between vision language and then fine tune that for a wide variety of other

It's it's a long process is a long process in but I think for this show. I think people we grow will appreciate the link of this process in and see how important it is. We're going to get everything right. So yeah I'm I'm really excited about it but apologize for the the wait I didn't know. UPS was going to be coming. This late wait around all day for. Yeah what was the last thing you were saying just now I was saying. Am Met. I apologize for the wait but you know what a cartoon like mine. Everything has to be like hundred percent. Correct I WANNA make sure it's done right in a out saying how I think people appreciate that. We took this extra time really salt. With all of these different people disabilities or not. Just you know just make. Shall we getting everything right. It's interesting you mentioned that it's sort of changed over time. Is that kind of a a worry when it comes to the development process that you started out with the things looking one way and then like maybe your personal style changed over the years bit by bit. Yeah what happens is I mean I'm not I'm not worried as yes that's just the development stage you know you see you start off with trash character designs and I have a ton you know if we put out the the team supreme the art of teams bring. You'll see all these bad designs and he's back character models and I had the original ahead like these kids. They would like super young like kindergarten yells route cute big heads but as I kept getting better with a drawing and stuff like that more stuff oughta get better and just found my style that I really wanted to stick with this thing so that I was tired of seeing like saying look for cartoon and they Kaunda Joke around I forgot what they call. Cow Arts no or you can just straight arms the hand you know real simple I get you no. That's that's kids. Don't care long the writings dope in his colorful fun. And I get it but hopefully we won't have to do this because my character they got meet on balls all the fingers and joints and all of that but yeah I have a character. That now is where I'm happy. So Gotcha as folks who. I know who have listened to this show while I've personally had like my own. I guess you could say like a graphic novel idea that I've had for a long time and I've been like so. I'd really need to find an illustrated collaborate with because I could. I WANNA write to characters and I've come up with the care with just a matter of like. Oh well who do I find that. Can you know do the designs or something like that right when it comes to that kind of process because you're the artist and like how long did it take you to find a writer to be able to kind of get everything together with team. Supreme will I've already. I mean a lot of stuff was done by me. In the beginning we had a whole. So what was supreme missiles the short film I was GonNa do short film in. That's why I was trying to raise the money so I wouldn't have to work for year. I was just an animate the whole shore. You know eight minutes. Yes by myself backgrounds. Everything Story Board. I was GONNA do it all by myself. And raising money with the indigo campaign roughing. It ended up raising six which I'm super thankful for. I'm real grateful for that but I gotta go different a different route Wisconsin where we have right now. Oh Yeah so just so. Folks know like the animation all of that it takes time. It's not as simple as as albums as simple as one might think. I don't know how simple they think. Think it might be but because we see so much animation now these days I feel like we see much more enemy now than we did like when we were kids. That's it's fine vision and especially now with like feature films and stuff mission is is big now right now yes absolutely yes so frame by frame animation with what I was GonNa do so that commercialized telling you about the thirty seven and commercial just for thirty seconds. It took me like three months. But that's me that's me still working full-time who time and going to school for just do it whenever I could on a after all weekend so like that but that was the whole process no I had tons the character designed had a new character turnarounds. So when you're talking about like a book or something like that still you know it's still difficult to do and then a lot. A lot of people don't realize how expensive this stuff can get some people charged by our some jars like eighth. You want this is going to be a flat rate. Twelve hundred or whatever they charge also think as somebody like. You have your book and long as everything isn't detail and I mean you save a lot of a lot of money because you're gonNA save artists artists some time. You know I get a lot of people need logo or whatever you want I man. I'm not even sure an extra money. 'cause I might have to do extra desires for what I usually do a skit something. I don't get stick. Figures sketch them out. Just on they'll ways was out of your mind our around that I will get up and that usually take a little bit of time but far book illustration I've never done one client just because I'm I don't know like if it's a series client and they really understand the process and how how the money works and time and all of that were made think about it but most.

"And you're again it's not like you're I thought like your free like if you're getting into prison under a fake name that means the prison isn't system completely is behind. You can't just get into prison using a fake. Id No Yeah No. It's not not a shitty bar. A- At eight thirty PM on July Twentieth Nineteen seventy-nine Leonard Garcia and nineteen year old. Lakota Dallas Thunder Shield set. It's fucking amazing thunder. She'll yeah set. Fires in their cells. Then used keys made by Garcia To reach the prison fence at this point supporters outside the prison were set up and they started shooting guards as the three climbed over the fence. Love it it but prison officials have been tipped off. There was a guard standing outside near the exact place where the exit he told the three men to freeze and they did and then the guard show thunder shield in the back. Jesus Christ Leonard Garcia then ran off into the brush while the guard handcuffed defender Shield as he was dying the I mean the American shoot and cuff his one of the and because because now we have access to seeing that shit to desensitize us to make normalized. That's right eventually. That's right. That is truly one of like the most disgusting discuss the see of disgusting displays you you have to put yourself into the position of a person doing that and if you if you can shoot a AH man. Let's say they're not armed and let's say they're not going to you if you can and that happens all the time like this is a man in the back and then and then haag tie him. Yeah as he's dying your fucking psycho yes yes you do often when you're a white supremacist. And you're doing what you want to do do yes. Any whatever whatever so thunder. She'll died one of letters supporters quote. The guard was there and he was ready. He didn't know about Thunder Shield. Who decided to join them at the last minute and it looks like the wrong lawn? Hair long haired Indian got shot so human. He's so killed again. It's when racism somehow plays into the like a broken clock is right twice. Yeah he was. He was an executioner. Yes and he. Because of his inability ready to differentiate shot the wrong person. That's right Garcia was captured ninety minutes later Leonard who is now armed with a rifle given to him by supporter disappeared into the hills. The A. M. called for members to flood the area to confuse the search right after five days of wandering in the heat Leonard approached a rural farmer at gunpoint on point. The farmer said quote. I suppose you're GonNa kill me now and let her replied no. I'm not a killer. I'm a political prisoner. I don't go around killing people for no reason as an at all in fact I haven't killed anybody. Leonard took the farmer's truck but let him go even though killing the farmer would have stopped him from calling police and and the farmer immediately called police. The Jug broke down after two miles and then the FBI and local police tracked Leonard. One of the detectives said quote. The information that we had on him was that he had a very explosive character and then he would not be taken alive. I mean even though he's already been taken alive and I till the farm. Yes yeah and explosive character. Where do you think that comes from? Yeah I mean that. Is the oldest the stereotype of all time when they caught up to Leonard. He didn't shoot at them after being handcuffed. Leonard said quote maybe I could have gotten one or two of you but I'm not a killer suck about explosive character. The the escape added seven years to his sentence for two consecutive life sentences in nineteen ninety-three by was found dead in prison. Authorities said he hanged himself but many believe he was murdered in one thousand nine hundred Epstein yes in force and now we're years gone by nineteen ninety four Leonard's original prosecutor admitted the government still do not know who killed collier in Williams the prosecutor who convicted him Said said in one thousand nine hundred four he and they did not know who killed the FBI agents. It's good detective work in nineteen in eighty. Six an appeals court acknowledged. FBI misconduct okay. But still affirmed Leonard's conviction sure that's how it works in one thousand nine hundred ninety Johny trial a now retired. Judge from VAT appeals court so the appeals court that said the F. B. I.. Done misconduct right. But right right he he retired and felt so fucking shitty because he knew healthier at committed. No crime that he wrote to President Bush saying that Leonard deserve to be set free due to misconduct by the FBI and other government agencies and the That that he did not pardon him or let him out again. Leonard based on this requested a new trial the Fargo judge again denied the request in nineteen. ninety-two aim co-founder Russell. Means had had a lead role in last of the MOHICANS Dennis banks had a supporting role means later voiced poke offices father and Pocahontas meanwhile in nineteen ninety-three. The three Leonard came up for parole and was denied if former. US Attorney General petitioned President Clinton to Pardon Leonard the the nice this week Democratic Man. The president the Democratic President President Clinton refused in two thousand and four four Leonard ran for president as the peace and Freedom Party candidate in California. I voted for did you. He got over twenty thousand votes in two thousand nine. He was denied parole and two thousand twelve federal judge a federal judge refused requests by Lennon's attorneys to review nine nine hundred pages of FBI. Documents related to Frank Black Horse Slash Francis Deluca who had never been extradited from Canada And remained there apparently free that year. Curious Jackson Browne. Pete seeger and must deaf performed at a bring Leonard unhealthier home concert at this point Nelson Mandela Mother Teresa the Dalai Lama Ringo Star at all called for Leonard to be released a huge campaign aimed at getting President Obama to Commute Leonard. Sentence reached its peak on January seventeenth. Two two thousand seventeen three days before Obama left office. Pope Francis personally reached out to President Obama an appeal For Leonard Peltier tears released. President Obama refused Leonard. Peltier is currently held in a prison in Florida. He has diabetes high blood pressure and a heart condition he also has children grandchildren. Great grandchildren he says he does not know who killed. FBI via agents Keller Williams he is next eligible for parole in two thousand and twenty four. When he will be seventy seventy nine years old? I how how the fuck does he not get a retrial or a new trial judges say no but that is so I mean the the system has to say this system is Zong. It's the dumbest but if acted there's not an outside body that is overseeing olive our court systems that saying no. That's actually that's actually they're you're You know there's a guy in Philadelphia in fucking prisons for the same reason. There's guys all over our country that are political prisoners sitting in prisons because they were good leaders And in this case you have a reservation that is being annihilated by law enforcement killed Axe murderers and the FBI is. I'm not doing anything so in two. FBI agents who come to your house to come to fucking kill you. Yeah Oh yeah like. That's the reality situation. Of course. Yeah and then we know that the FBI fabricated evidence had false witnesses. It's it's a fucking slam dunk. Yeah that's why I think there's only one president president presidential candidate who will free him myself. I don't think there are any except for Bernie Sanders. Who Will Free Leonard Peltier not one? Not One of those fucking people will do it and this is this like it's pretty well known I don't I don't I don't think Obama is a good president and in some ways I think I think my personal opinion is Obama was the most cynical president in my lifetime because more more than anyone else. He got the youth of America to get very excited about his election and then he told them to fuck off. Yeah And that that was devastating eating and that led to. I don't know a lot of those people not partaking in the next election. Weird that that would happen. I would guess who got fucking elected But this this to me when he did this yeah I remember to think about how he didn't he didn't prosecute wells Fargo when they were clearly clearly committing racial crimes. Tickets from five to seven this to me is the most disgusting gusting thing he has ever done from an empathetic human being standpoint. Because the pardoning process when you're leaving office is so absurd there is no repercussion. There's the guy I can't remember where I think he's from Kentucky. Whatever he just he's pardoned like murderers pedophile? He's pardon harden like and and there is a little bit of a river road but as of now. If you're the president you can just commute or get rid of of sentences. People people are excited for trump to be out of office but motherfuckers. When that starts pardoning? Oh you're GonNa wish you were never in this country because he's going to. It's going to be like the TV. Show Gotham or you can send that his best case scenario I that is best case scenario. I mean Yeah Yeah but yeah to me that was Obama's biggest crime That guy has no no reason to be imprisoned. Yeah he is a political prisoner in America because he's a native American and fought for his people and there's nothing else they're literally. Nothing else are good. Time.

They're freezing in their homes because they don't have enough a fucking fuel to burn a the Guelleh community loved them and especially Leonard who took over as leader when banks left let it also had a huge personality and a glue resident quote crazy guy but fun good crazy not not really fun to be around. You can't say crazy crazy but by this time. Leonard had seven children children from two marriages and two adopted children. Okay phase these big families out there on June twenty third. The Gwala LAKOTA. Jimmy Jimmy Eagle stole the cowboy boots a white man during a drunken fight on the reservation K.. I my guess. Is that this white gentlemen. Let's let's clarity. Sink in and calmly has for his boots back. Eagle Eagle had used the knife Eagle denied using a knife but he was carrying it and he was charged with felony robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. Now this gave the FBI jurisdiction. It's a felony. A warrant was put out for his arrest on June twenty fifth. FBI agents Ronald Lambs. And Jack you're entered the jumping property looking for eagle. They were told that he hasn't been seen in a few days and they were. They were more than one building. They went into a small building but did not go into the main compound building. Okay the next morning a resident was driving a half mile away when he saw a hundred and fifty law enforcement. Men gathered before noon agents Picnic Picnic Williams and call. Your return is not known who shot first but a gunfight started besides am members many non-member number locals were there including eight children and three pregnant women most started running away as the shooting went on Leonard and a few other State William Collier shot non fatally from a distance k. Then one or more people walked up to the two agents and shot them three times each from close range killing them no law enforcement shootings right the FBI be police local and state a police us. MARSHALS SWAT teams goons and other local white agitators assholes right status astles. Leonard's crew believed quote. We were in all probability going to die before the day was done. They were not just going to arrest us. They were GONNA kill us right. Yeah of course I mean based on the track record Fair instinct couple of things in this puzzle native Americans and FBI So anyway I'm done with my arguments ended pizza. So but then quote an eagle came out and flew down and sat in the tree above us and then flew away and we knew that was the direction we should go so they went in the direction. The Eagle went went and they got away. That's Hugh madge if that goes south. I know you're like oh no they're in here to talk to Google Goddamn Damn and it was a copy. We got Him Eagle. We got. I wish that my life was commanded. More what are you GONNA do. They the whole mcquaid. There's a Puma and actually following a snake trail. I believe there's water near by wait. What trust me one thirty PM? The loss rounded a cabin on the compound bound and ordered everyone to come out with their hands up from inside two men fired a warning shot. Then made a run for it k- The cops blasted away shooting. The Joe Kills Right through the head last name. Ronnie it's not a great name for the what happened. Yeah Yeah it's a bad. It's an omen for the the shootout with a guy named kills right. Yes nine maybe we should separate the other man. His brother-in-law escaped after Fiore's ars walking Leonard's group was seen by officers in the distance and they opened fire but then the Eagle appeared again at this eagle and again they followed it to safety as a SAST. I Eagle Every Eagle special. FBI IN SWAT units flying in from all around the country and a group of white ranchers called the civil liberties organization who owned some reservation. Land were given no helicopter. What a chemical warfare fair team a team of snipers and four SWAT teams what these are literally just asshole ranchers and they get all all that they get essentially and what are they military force which by the way used this crazy to just give to people but and they're just now allowed to just if they're just going to go up part of the hunt at five thirty pm the white cops in white ranchers rated the main house on the compounds pounds so they're involved in the fucking rate well it was an the the main house is empty except for Joe. It's like bring your white to work day empty except for Jokiel rights body. Okay kills rights. Cecilia John Jumping Ball. Return later that evening and an officer told her that two men had been killed on our property. Okay so you pointed at kills rights body and asked if that was one of them a note that guy fell he no no. Yeah Yeah Yes yes. Yeah get the officer said no quote. That's just an Indian. So when he said two men and been killed he meant the white guys were killed in that as human right right that is and That's the FBI right agent. Also family photos on the wall all of having photos on the wall. Everybody's been shot through their head in the family photo. Jesus US Christ. But it's weird when you give her a bunch of rancher vigilantes and launch team. FBI era other darkness. Leonard's group made it to a remote cabin of Noah wounded the uncle of an am member at foreign. They're making pancakes. You guys. We're killing this you guys. What do you feel like swimming tells? Follow me to upon come on felony so for the the next morning a bomb shattered the windows at Mount Rushmore visitor center eighty miles away. Wow No one was injured but also knowing claimed that if they did okay that day is the the South Dakota Attorney General said it was time to stop being quote soft on the Indians just because because they are a minority group people. Yeah why people just just sort of landless. It's it's relent relentless it's it's everywhere over the next days. Leonard Group slept under trees during the day. And move during the night Leonard with Dino Butler and Bob Ridoux became the leaders. They spent July and various safe houses around pine rich an am team spokesman said the dam would quote not apologize for the deaths of the FBI agents until the US Justice Department apologized for the deaths of all those Indian lawyers killed in the past. Three years come on those. Were not worry proof. Basically Pineridge. They spent three years of a fucking shootouts. And just people getting killed left and right and I mean ton again. We've been killed again. It's what happens when you're an occupying force and now to you too occupiers get killed. I mean essentially it is the policy of when you hold your finger in front of someone's face and you don't touch me. Don't touch me. It doesn't raise. Don't touch me. And he said the FBI a woods sorry and he said the am would step up. Its See South Dakota Kota last antiterrorism campaign next year now. That is an interesting nod so the next year is fourth of July the bicentennial any also huge celebration all over America and tourists are expected to just pouring into Mount Rushmore for the celebrations. And he's saying they're going to start a campaign and you're not GonNa do that right Very smart the state attorney general said quote the only way to deal with these. AM leaders do put a bullet in their heads. She nice that that sounds like terrorism. I mean that is that is not. That's just not on July fourth and FBI helicopter go back to England. It's not great over there right now. Well it's now on July fourth an F. B. I.. Helicopter was shot down over Pine Ridge with no casualties. Wow on July eighth. Jimmy Eagle turned himself into police the FBI be an investigation known as reservoirs into the agents agents colliers and Williams murders Joe Kills Rights. Death was never invest. I mean it was just about to say it is just nice. A guy running running. Yeah guy running shot in the back most likely nothing than to agents. Who Won't you just do wrong right? Even though they're doing complete wrong most the time take care of your own reservoirs. Investigators were routinely breaking and entering to get evidence and if people will write to me sitting in the good guys. I can literally really do a year of podcasts about the FBI you could you could do a dollop FBI right and have enough content for a fucking decade right. I mean the the FBI is insane. Just look at the terrorists. They've arrested in America. It's all dudes fucking duped. who had no idea what was going on and the the biggest terrorist guys like? I just want a sandwich like it's fucking crazy and some of the some of the things that they have floated up the chain of possibility. Are I mean crazy. No nothing like a group that told. MLK To kill himself and his family thinks killed him So resumes investigators were routinely breaking and entering to get evidence in illegally threatening and harassing suspects and witnesses. So they're just doing they use it as a matter because it's a reservation and well yeah of course and you are the law. Reservoirs led to four people being charged for the murder of the agents. Jimmy Eagle Dino Butler. Bob River do an Leonard Peltier the US Civil Rights Commission called resumes quote an over-reaction with which takes on aspects of a vendetta weird. What did they cite sources and that little has been done to solve solve? Numerous murders on the reservations but went to white men are killed. Troops are brought in from all over the country at a cost of hundreds of millions of dollars truly so which which white people say we do our thing as literally. I think okay so you get it so. I don't know what the problem is in August. Leonard it's a group split up. He made his way to California and on September Fifth Dino Butler was arrested on September tenth Bob Ribbon who was arrested in Kansas. Yes he had agent Collier's gun as well as an air. Fifteen from the trunk of the agents car. Okay let it was now the only one still large. Okay I've ever fourteenth an Oregon State. What a scary feeling on November fourteenth and Oregon State Trooper Uber mis-read? FBI instructions to keep a motorhome under surveillance of K.. He misread it and he thought he was supposed to stop it. Okay well that's ask. The I man out was quote a large Mexican appearing person. He ordered him to lie down face to face down the road. This is one of those times where like racism actually works to your because they think you're Mexican just like so Inept at like being able to distinguish care to differentiate say I would just the Mexican good work.

The Gwala LAKOTA. Jimmy Jimmy Eagle stole the cowboy boots a white man during a drunken fight on the reservation K.. I my guess. Is that this white gentlemen. Let's let's clarity. Sink in and calmly has for his boots back. Eagle Eagle had used the knife Eagle denied using a knife but he was carrying it and he was charged with felony robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. Now this gave the FBI jurisdiction. It's a felony. A warrant was put out for his arrest on June twenty fifth. FBI agents Ronald Lambs. And Jack you're entered the jumping property looking for eagle. They were told that he hasn't been seen in a few days and they were. They were more than one building. They went into a small building but did not go into the main compound building. Okay the next morning a resident was driving a half mile away when he saw a hundred and fifty law enforcement. Men gathered before noon agents Picnic Picnic Williams and call. Your return is not known who shot first but a gunfight started besides am members many non-member number locals were there including eight children and three pregnant women most started running away as the shooting went on Leonard and a few other State William Collier shot non fatally from a distance k. Then one or more people walked up to the two agents and shot them three times each from close range killing them no law enforcement shootings right the FBI be police local and state a police us. MARSHALS SWAT teams goons and other local white agitators assholes right status astles. Leonard's crew believed quote. We were in all probability going to die before the day was done. They were not just going to arrest us. They were GONNA kill us right. Yeah of course I mean based on the track record Fair instinct couple of things in this puzzle native Americans and FBI So anyway I'm done with my arguments ended pizza. So but then quote an eagle came out and flew down and sat in the tree above us and then flew away and we knew that was the direction we should go so they went in the direction. The Eagle went went and they got away. That's Hugh madge if that goes south. I know you're like oh no they're in here to talk to Google Goddamn Damn and it was a copy. We got Him Eagle. We got. I wish that my life was commanded. More what are you GONNA do. They the whole mcquaid. There's a Puma and actually following a snake trail. I believe there's water near by wait. What trust me one thirty PM? The loss rounded a cabin on the compound bound and ordered everyone to come out with their hands up from inside two men fired a warning shot. Then made a run for it k- The cops blasted away shooting. The Joe Kills Right through the head last name. Ronnie it's not a great name for the what happened. Yeah Yeah it's a bad. It's an omen for the the shootout with a guy named kills right. Yes nine maybe we should separate the other man. His brother-in-law escaped after Fiore's ars walking Leonard's group was seen by officers in the distance and they opened fire but then the Eagle appeared again at this eagle and again they followed it to safety as a SAST. I Eagle Every Eagle special. FBI IN SWAT units flying in from all around the country and a group of white ranchers called the civil liberties organization who owned some reservation. Land were given no helicopter. What a chemical warfare fair team a team of snipers and four SWAT teams what these are literally just asshole ranchers and they get all all that they get essentially and what are they military force which by the way used this crazy to just give to people but and they're just now allowed to just if they're just going to go up part of the hunt at five thirty pm the white cops in white ranchers rated the main house on the compounds pounds so they're involved in the fucking rate well it was an the the main house is empty except for Joe. It's like bring your white to work day empty except for Jokiel rights body. Okay kills rights. Cecilia John Jumping Ball. Return later that evening and an officer told her that two men had been killed on our property. Okay so you pointed at kills rights body and asked if that was one of them a note that guy fell he no no. Yeah Yeah Yes yes. Yeah get the officer said no quote. That's just an Indian. So when he said two men and been killed he meant the white guys were killed in that as human right right that is and That's the FBI right agent. Also family photos on the wall all of having photos on the wall. Everybody's been shot through their head in the family photo. Jesus US Christ. But it's weird when you give her a bunch of rancher vigilantes and launch team. FBI era other darkness. Leonard's group made it to a remote cabin of Noah wounded the uncle of an am member at foreign. They're making pancakes. You guys. We're killing this you guys. What do you feel like swimming tells? Follow me to upon come on felony so for the the next morning a bomb shattered the windows at Mount Rushmore visitor center eighty miles away. Wow No one was injured but also knowing claimed that if they did okay that day is the the South Dakota Attorney General said it was time to stop being quote soft on the Indians just because because they are a minority group people. Yeah why people just just sort of landless. It's it's relent relentless it's it's everywhere over the next days. Leonard Group slept under trees during the day. And move during the night Leonard with Dino Butler and Bob Ridoux became the leaders. They spent July and various safe houses around pine rich an am team spokesman said the dam would quote not apologize for the deaths of the FBI agents until the US Justice Department apologized for the deaths of all those Indian lawyers killed in the past. Three years come on those. Were not worry proof. Basically Pineridge. They spent three years of a fucking shootouts. And just people getting killed left and right and I mean ton again. We've been killed again. It's what happens when you're an occupying force and now to you too occupiers get killed. I mean essentially it is the policy of when you hold your finger in front of someone's face and you don't touch me. Don't touch me. It doesn't raise. Don't touch me. And he said the FBI a woods sorry and he said the am would step up. Its See South Dakota Kota last antiterrorism campaign next year now. That is an interesting nod so the next year is fourth of July the bicentennial any also huge celebration all over America and tourists are expected to just pouring into Mount Rushmore for the celebrations. And he's saying they're going to start a campaign and you're not GonNa do that right Very smart the state attorney general said quote the only way to deal with these. AM leaders do put a bullet in their heads. She nice that that sounds like terrorism. I mean that is that is not. That's just not on July fourth and FBI helicopter go back to England. It's not great over there right now. Well it's now on July fourth an F. B. I.. Helicopter was shot down over Pine Ridge with no casualties. Wow on July eighth. Jimmy Eagle turned himself into police the FBI be an investigation known as reservoirs into the agents agents colliers and Williams murders Joe Kills Rights. Death was never invest. I mean it was just about to say it is just nice. A guy running running. Yeah guy running shot in the back most likely nothing than to agents. Who Won't you just do wrong right? Even though they're doing complete wrong most the time take care of your own reservoirs. Investigators were routinely breaking and entering to get evidence and if people will write to me sitting in the good guys. I can literally really do a year of podcasts about the FBI you could you could do a dollop FBI right and have enough content for a fucking decade right. I mean the the FBI is insane. Just look at the terrorists. They've arrested in America. It's all dudes fucking duped. who had no idea what was going on and the the biggest terrorist guys like? I just want a sandwich like it's fucking crazy and some of the some of the things that they have floated up the chain of possibility. Are I mean crazy. No nothing like a group that told. MLK To kill himself and his family thinks killed him So resumes investigators were routinely breaking and entering to get evidence in illegally threatening and harassing suspects and witnesses. So they're just doing they use it as a matter because it's a reservation and well yeah of course and you are the law. Reservoirs led to four people being charged for the murder of the agents. Jimmy Eagle Dino Butler. Bob River do an Leonard Peltier the US Civil Rights Commission called resumes quote an over-reaction with which takes on aspects of a vendetta weird. What did they cite sources and that little has been done to solve solve? Numerous murders on the reservations but went to white men are killed. Troops are brought in from all over the country at a cost of hundreds of millions of dollars truly so which which white people say we do our thing as literally. I think okay so you get it so. I don't know what the problem is in August. Leonard it's a group split up. He made his way to California and on September Fifth Dino Butler was arrested on September tenth Bob Ribbon who was arrested in Kansas. Yes he had agent Collier's gun as well as an air. Fifteen from the trunk of the agents car. Okay let it was now the only one still large. Okay I've ever fourteenth an Oregon State. What a scary feeling on November fourteenth and Oregon State Trooper Uber mis-read? FBI instructions to keep a motorhome under surveillance of K.. He misread it and he thought he was supposed to stop it. Okay well that's ask. The I man out was quote a large Mexican appearing person. He ordered him to lie down face to face down the road. This is one of those times where like racism actually works to your because they think you're Mexican just like so Inept at like being able to distinguish care to differentiate say I would just the Mexican good work.

"That's Leonard Cohen Singing Hallelujah and my guest is Leonard Cohen's son Adam cone and there's an he wrote the introduction to a new new collection of posthumously published Leonard Cohen Lyrics Poems Notebook entries and drawings and it's called the flame So you know how I think. Like two hundred people have recorded Hallelujah and but it didn't become well known until Jeff Buckley recorded at like maybe ten years or more after your father recorded it which is just so strange but It's a sign of. I think there was a period of years when your father's genius wasn't fully acknowledged when he had the initial period of hits and then I think people oh just a lot of people just kind of drifted away and then rediscovered him and What was it like for you and for him during that period one? When I think think you'd been a little bit forgotten? Yeah I feel like my father. Probably felt like his whole life. Life was characterized by that by that description that he did he'd been forgotten forgotten by the angels forgotten by the accused Forgotten by I know that he was not satisfied. he was a seeker he wasn't satisfied with either the position that he had for the most part In society he wasn't happy with the site site itself that would be deepened. The conflict. He wasn't He wasn't satisfied with the people aid. Chosen to be around him. He wasn't satisfied with his role as father. He wasn't satisfied with his role as a lover And through this layer upon layer ear of dissatisfaction he somehow mustered an incredible buoyancy and ability to be One of the most delightful lightfoot people anyone ever came across and it wasn't with any sense of bitterness or judgment I think he just felt like he had this. Aw Shabby little life and his only solace was was the work itself. And that's what made the end of his life. That more astonishing surprising and delicious. You know this Unexpected ability to to fill you know twenty thousand seats in in any major city in the world these reviews from people that were like. You know this like they were reviewing the Sistine Chapel itself It was accompanied by commercial success and accolades and to see him. Take his hat off. You know now and thank the jubilant audiences one after the other which to see a man who was genuinely surprised and delighted by the reception that he thought he was never gonNa get in life when I saw him probably in the late two thousands like two thousand nine may be. I can't remember what it was. It was kind of like being in a church or synagogue. There was this sense of like the devotion of his fans to him and his his devotion to the music and two things larger and he ended it with what struck me as a benediction. And I forget exactly what he said. But you know to those of you who are going home to your families. Enjoy your families and to those of you who live alone. Enjoy your solitude and I thought like people don't say that that's such a beautiful thing to say. It's a lovely way of sending people home and sending home people. We're going home alone in joy your solitude. Yeah may these songs songs find you and your solitude may the blessings actually the exact quote as may the blessings find you and your solitude. I thought it was just beautiful. Well this is a the man who has he says. I think you've you've just played it you know. Although we had a reputation as a ladies' man you know he was.

The son of singer Songwriter. Leonard Cohen a new Leonard Cohen Album. Thanks thanks for the dance comes out today so you were born in Nineteen seventy-two. Some of your father's most famous songs were already written and recorded by the time you were born Suzanne so long Marianne nowhere to say goodbye. Burn a wire Chelsea hotel who by fire So did you hear them. You didn't need me so did you hear them a lot when you were growing up. I mean it's like when I was growing up I thought about songs and singers. But he didn't think about song writers. You know I just thought about like what's the song and who's singing it But but you're you. Your father was a song writers. He must have had an awareness that songwriting was a craft. That something people actually he did. And you must like grown up with these songs. I don't know if he played them around the house. I don't know if you've even heard them when you were you know. Of course I heard them. Yeah a AH five year old On the side of stages watching them being performed in of course gone into the looking at the faces of of audiences You know in in in different times and places and I was a deep deep admirer of the melodies of at first you know as a child just the melodies the generosity of the melodies and then as I grew older there was the complexities and the beautiful marshalling of language and Then you grow older and then you you sort of see I remember I remember I myself was making a record at the time and had scrapped it and I asked my father for counsel as a Dad. You know meet me me me I really got to talk to you. I got to pick your brain and we were sitting on the corner of Wilshire. Sure in La Brea and I confessed to him that I was GONNA scrap this entire record and was expecting him to put his hand on my shoulder. And say like. That's it's my boy. You know altruistic values don't ever stop continue refining but instead he turned to me and said he scrapped your record. That's an amateur move. OOF said amateur move he says yeah. It's not about how you feel about the records. How the songs make them feel? And at that moment I realized that the LOVATO's head for his material wasn't just about their construction but it was also about their intentionally he was holding up this baton that he had been given by the love he had for the people who came before him and he was holding it up and and something about the Canon of his work that has always maintained that that baton baton off the ground. How old were you and your parents? Separated five six. I'm not the door member. So how much did you get to see your father after that. I'm in a relationship. Now and the imperfection of a union between lean to people has been demonstrated to me in vivid colors and dimensions. And the fact that my father was able to stay in his children's life despite those complications and then some was remarkable is remarkable to me I my mother other moved my sister and I have to across the world many occasions not just to get away from him in fact not to get away from him at all which is to follow her own whims uh-huh and My father would often even park a caravan At the end of a dirt road just to be near US Him He's always been part of our lives it always. He always maintained a role in our lives despite my parents separation so a caravan is like a mobile home. Oh yeah the liquidity call the jet stream kind of thing Ah Yeah I remember. My mother moved my sister now. All the way to the south of France where we lived And there's a long dirt road and he bought when he sort of caravan jetstream some type things and he put it the tea where the road met.

"We thought his game might have been limited, but we didn't know he went, he's the only guy who's gone into the playoffs. We know how good you are. We know how good you are. You're great. Oh, no. We didn't know how good you were right? It's almost like we forgot how good he was because he was playing like this before the injury and say that Tonio. He really was. But I'm intrigued by this finals because you have a guy going up against a super team. It's, it's Ken. Michael Jordan, take down a super team basically, by himself that's going to be interested. You also have the Kevin Durant storyline. And this is a series that there are absolutely gonna miss Kevin Durant. And he's not going to be playing in game one because historically Steph curry plays Toronto better than any team. But now they're going to put Hawaii on them without Kevin Durant on the floor, and how's that going to go for a guy that historically struggled in the NBA final, Golden State is just a different team altogether. Arden me are go sit outside for a couple of minutes. Oh, trouble. Lameta giving your clear your throat the other direction because you've been a disaster. Okay. I covered him phlegm. So we're not gonna do it. Kawhi leonard. Stu gods? Yes. Is he going if he wins the title, does he become more coveted free agent and Kevin Durant, because, oh gosh, these younger because he's younger if he beat this team to win a title. I'm not certain. He should be more coveted free agent. But he probably will become a more coveted thing. That is breathtaking to me, is what he did defensively to Jaanus. I've not seen. Nobody can slow Janas. He's literally, the only person in the world that can slow Jaanus. There's not another defender that can do it. I mean, what do you do if he wins this title Kawai, he'll have to championship rings, Kevin Durant has none? I mean Kawai Leonard is. Yeah, I guess, yeah, he'll be the prized free agent here coming up in July. What an exciting final. I am super excited for this. You're not what I can't believe Greg, Cody, not excited for what I can't believe, because, honestly, this sport is our most predictable sport. And it qualifies as a huge upset that the to beat the one and now. It's one against two from both conferences. But the part that is amazing to me, Stu gods. And is a legitimate surprise is you remember where the raptors were four games ago as they headed into overtime looking like they were blowing a game. They were going to be down three. Oh. And all of this was going to be about Jaanus. It wasn't going to be about coli Leonard. In fact, it was gonna be about honest so much that we aren't going to even notice that Jaanus was exposed if that ball bounces differently in game three. That's how quickly things change. Oh man. If you're looking at odds makers no matter who wins the championship it would seem as though they're still losing their best player considering what's favored at turns their next team, this is a fascinating final. It's that what's happened with the raptors is interesting just because they were done. They were done. They they're sitting there going into overtime Stu aunt, and he's played fifty minutes. He's hurt. He's clearly tired any takes the series from them in game three by winning and overtime where they'd gone down three like they should have gone down oath three given how they played at the end of the game. Right. We wouldn't be talking about any of this stuff. Instead Canada's going crazy. And Drake's gotta be there that's going to be a great final who's getting his Drake, annoying, everybody or just some of the people he's a great wrestling. He'll I think so.

Fifty nine percent in the playoff is Toronto teammate is passed the man's incredible man, the common level man is is crazy and having guy and nothing will be doing all this season is being tough whenever we you know, we fall down and people doubted, you always come out speaking of the cargo this team, and then guys have let me Butler lead villi with twenty nine. Joel Embiid with -ill after thirty three points in game three had only two baskets in game four. So they're tied at two and so the nuggets and trailblazers Denver after losing in four overtimes in game. Three came back to win last night.

"The ironic special, the crazy, especially a high often than before. I often film amazing. I good. I cannot can play right. Yeah, I was. I wanted to comments section to notice. I didn't know tape. I gotta Finney. Okay. Regarding symbol. Taper is basically fame moving on notice that's not what is this? Might you have a fade? No, I didn't. I'm saying, you can't even tell the difference. Was barber dog. I know what I'm talking about. I'm gonna taper. Can we just move on. We can't because listen, this is his problem, the Fe, and you can't tell me the difference attempt of. If you get a fame right issues when you're the terror on top of your head is longer than the ones on the sides and the so what are the tape? Taper is just when you call like the edge off over year. It's only to your like your Templars. She don't know what he's talking about is move on ironic special. Because last episode. So we had a debate about why Leonard going to the raptors a day before it happened, you drop the bomb, we did it. Who would that we, they don't have the people whether you were saying they don't have the pieces you were saying they would. They give up the more. They don't say that they have to give up the more to make this deal happen. NPR is like, I don't think they would be my sense because he wanted to. He's the one to see kuwa- the Rosen play thought that would be the whole purpose because now I mean, let's get into the specifics of deal for the people who have been living under rock for the past week Kawai. Linda was sent to rod, so quiet and daddy Grayson. Saracho stages denigrating. For chains of demartin rooms in and Jaka potable, and then the first round panting nineteen twenty protected. That's the deal happen. Like in the brink of the night, it was like two o'clock in the morning, and we I got a tweet from SAM's like they're in deep conversation and then maybe three hours later it was like a done deal. And now we've got the picture yesterday of actually being up there until rod. So kind of a four smile and everything, but he's there and it looks like he's going to actually play because that was actually a question. Rebuilders reputation. People keep saying like me, not gonna play. He has no choice, but to play us, I was hearing something on some talk show that he has to play within thirty days or they can withhold his contract. They can withhold him as a player for next year. Free agency. He's no Nustar. No, no, no. Like the first thirty days at a A seat. seat if he does. If he refuses to play, they can contract. Undisputed, what you're saying is true. There are some repercussions if you just decided not to play for the team, they just traded for you. So I, I didn't know this specific work, but. Okay, true heroes talking about I respect Chris Boucher so it's gotta be facts. Let me hear what you think about the deal who's going who hit. I. I think short term the raptors one of quite has resigned long-term. They definitely one, but I think the Spurs got back in return a little bit more than what they want expected. They got a star, but Jacob Poro is going to be a pretty decent. You want to make so much cool about away. Gore. Imagine if you cross somebody over. No, that will be so. It would make sense. Nobody was saying, I. Yeah, I was thinking I'm the one that came up with. Of course, I was saying. No. About The Danny green? I feel like he was a big piece. 'cause like he's a big part of what they do defensively, and they just gave away like, I don't know, they don't have that wing defender, no more roles in, isn't that great over defender? You're right. And they lost Hawaii, which was the best defender, and they lost scout Anderson, but also very. He's e- Abed defend. Nobody's Danny green. He's probably average if I were to rank as well. Average with the raptors. I think he can get a little stuff property. I ain't sitting. It'll be Danny green Okawara Linter, but he should be started, especially when you've got to John's marina background, what you're doing and at backward..
