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

"The storyline and the lead for this game three is no Dominique Ducharme. The interim head coach for the Montreal Canadians testing positive for Covid on a test that was administered yesterday in Vegas That was reiterated by a follow up test earlier this afternoon in Montreal. How big of an effect or any effect? Do you expect that to have on this hockey game? You know what? I'm just going back to when I played? You know what All the preparation is done before the game starts. It's done. You know what your responsibilities are now again enter game. I think Luke Richardson, who will be taking over his head coach, he will have decisions to make as far as Do you change the aggressiveness of your four check when you have a lead when you're trailing, Do you become more? You make those system changes during the game As far as when do you double shift the line? Well, that might come into his mind. Maybe he'll do it differently. Ducharme. Each guy has different strengths and weaknesses. He might go at it a different way We touched on it a while ago. I think the matchups situations and face offs that doesn't change. I've gone into many games where the coaches said if you're on the ice against the line, you're not supposed to be on the ice against. We've talked about the matchups. Get off. As soon as possible. You know that it becomes automatic. You don't need a coach to tell you to do it. Yeah, As a member of the coaching staff, you know the matchups that the staff wants to have really no big difference there. One

You see things like your tagline is now map the universe of biology that is quite a phrase and and i really want you to dive in and help define that for for me and the listeners as we go on later in the show. It's it's really a bold statement we're looking to do.

Like with many of these interviews brad. I'd like to start out with a little bit on the person. So can you tell me just a little bit about You and where you come from. You're a native of columbia south carolina. Is that right. That's right columbia's the capital of south carolina. I grew up in a little suburb erm. Oh and Middle class neighborhood. Father was an engineer and entrepreneur. Who is kind of the early days of connecting personal computers to industrial control systems. Started a business in our garage and kinda ran it as a one man. show Coding pc's through the night on my mom was a special ed teacher and have younger brother. Younger sister Okay so you got some entrepreneurship in the family. My did you give tasked as a as a young kid working on your dad's business. No but i watched him and if anything. It made me more reluctant entrepreneur. I mean my father's business was ultimately not successful. He's he tried for on and off for a decade to make it on his own stubbornly refusing to take on partners or capital and It was tough. He eventually had to reenter the more traditional workforce which was a challenging thing to do.

Australia's Been Caught With Its Pants Down
"Know i've got a new metric now for the covid pandemic yes. Let's hear it. What time of day is the battery on my phone. Run well given that. You're basically turn all dr sworn i feel like it could happen at six o'clock in the morning. There was a little bit later than that yesterday. It was eleven. Am flat anyway. Let's get on with a story. That's all your secret. Sauce is blowing up your fine. Well let's talk about what we do know so far about that. The continuing outbreak melbourne. We we've sort of got about fifteen cases in the questionaire at least is are the numbers that we were hearing yesterday of about. Four generations of the virus from the original source that we know came from the side of the person you hotel quarantine through to the more races that came to light yesterday. There's still lots and lots of people whose tests is still yet to be processed but so far there seems to be a single chain of transmission which is reassuring even if the numbers are pretty big raw. Yeah so if you just look at the pattern here you've got the man called the waller man just like some prehistoric story here but the woman who's who comes from safest area. He caught it in hotel. Quarantine is he in negative and came out positive an adjacent room to somebody who was positive. So that's pretty outrageous and shows you how vulnerable we are and just luke if everybody's feeling relaxed and comfortable but hotel quarantine just look at that. This is what a fault in hotel. Quarantine does it stops state and this is so significant and we still try and pretend hotel. Quarantine is simply fantastic. This is what happens. So then you've got a man. I think was sixty who is actually called case five. Of course on the order of cases he was discovered he in fact is the earliest case in this chain. But there's a gap is a gap between the wall man and the man who is case number five as the first case in this chain.

"And joins us now from cambridge massachusetts. He is the author of the metaphysical club and his newest book is called the free world art and thought in the cold war luke. Thanks for being here. Thank you for having me so you are actually in the widener library at harvard university as we speak. That's correct. yes. I'm in the office in the stacks in which i wrote the entire book and i don't think i could have written a book if i hadn't had access to these incredible library resources at harvard. How long did you spend researching the book. Do you tend to do all of your research and then begin writing or do you do both as you go along. I spent about ten years on the book. And i do research for each chapter and i write that chapter and then move onto the next chapter. So he's chapter took a long time to do. Because i wanted to do a fair amount of research to get a feel for the period a feel for what other written about it so you had this all outlined then presumably before you began writing. No the only thing i had outlined was i knew where i wanted to begin which is nineteen forty five at the end of the second world war and i knew the finish line was nineteen sixty five which is the year. The united states intervened militarily in south vietnam. So those were sort of bookends of the book. And then i kinda followed my nose through the period just sort of see where it was going at a certain point as you approach your the horizon that you set for yourself. Nineteen sixty five. You begin to see something happening that you want to capture. So i didn't start out with a thesis exactly. I just wanted to tell the story as it unfolded historically and then. I discovered the doing that. What what the trend lines were that. I tried to sort of hit on those as i was going through it. But he's chapter is sort of a separate book in a takes up at different subject to differ figure different movement and tries to sort of you know capsule it with. That's all about new moves onto another

"So I mean for us. It's been weird but for me, it's weird because I'm not seeing you know ten or twenty people at the office, but you're not getting a chance to see twenty thousand people. In an arena that that that's a big difference what what does that feel like? Home, it sucks to be frank. This was going to be you know I think this is going to be career defining year. For me as far as touring goes and You know obviously, it was a massive honor getting the entertainer nod. Today but but you know I would have loved to have been able to be out there and really put a stamp on it. With my numbers and try to try to use that to competition for. You know to make my case for maybe win in that thing you know and so it's kind of. It's weird in that sense because like you said it, my first stadium show was going to be this year background went to college and you know that was a huge deal to me and in that town, it's really small town. So it's a big deal for them tourism dollars wise and So it was just you know two nights a massive square garden two nights at Boston Garden I mean every show on the tour was sold out I. Mean I think we? Sold. Over half a million tickets or something mean it's it's like insane. You know the amount of people that were not getting the play for this year you know and so and obviously we were hoping to use that success from this to. Transition into. Potentially. You know garth level. Shows neck. You know next year was kind of the hope. So now that's just kind of all been paused. Think. Sure because if you're going to mount that bigger production, you've got to start thinking. Well in advance. Stadium. It's two years to plan that. It's not just like you know what? Let's do that next month you know it's I mean it's a year year and a half of planning the production and new gathering the trucks in the buses and adding staff and you know. So it's and that's all stuff that I. I guess I don't have to be involved in, but I'm like pretty heavily involved in making sure that all that stuff happens. You know I like to. I'm not a control freak because I'm not the guy that necessarily knows. What should or shouldn't happen but I do like to know what's going on and be involved in this decision. So it's not like I'm just going. Let's do stadiums call me when we're going. Either you know what I mean, right? You do more than wait for the wait for the car to pick you up. you know you you mentioned your managers, a couple of times. I had the the pleasure speaking with the Lynn Lynagh recline and Chris Cathy your managers for billboard and I remember something people always talk about how quickly things happened for you. But I remembered something the Capi told me and I went and looked it up. He was talking about how the when he first joined up with you. That you guys were in a van not even trailer. It was an extended fifteen passenger van within the last two rows pulled out for the gear and we toured in that for five months so and he was driving yes, he was driving. So at six guys in their gear stuff together in a van for for five months that that sounds like some pretty hard work. Yet was and we were playing about four shows a four shows a week. Then that time and you know mean Capi one is will be two guys a pop at that time. I mean he's he's recently dropped about one hundred, fifty bills But me and him were Ryan Shotgun just out of necessity really at that point. So he was driving I mean and he wasn't like Oh we'll trade off. Like that guy drove every mile. For six months. And I mean, four nights away he quit. You know six figure job and. Blew through his entire life savings. To come here and drive a Shitty old van with some kid in it and a couple guys he met at the tin roof and g go play shows. You know I mean like so that level dedication to me is like, what sold me? On copy as a manager like I. Can't question the guys commitment at that point. But but you have this effect on people because. If I remember right Capi told me that he saw you play a show. And then almost immediately started pitching you on on being your manager. Jonathan do I remember right that you also you saw Lucas songwriting he had. On a two-day. WHO It was. Yeah. It was on a Tuesday at ten revival Robin channing those guys put on. Me Randy Montana standing in the back drinking a beer thinking was the. University. And so we're always like the old guys we're like, Hey, man, we'll play the anniversary just put us on it like eight o'clock you know so we can go home early. and. So we had played we got done with standing at the bar drinking out for a walk out the door, and here this guy starts singing and we kind of jog back you know. To the back. Is sitting there playing in. Yeah. We're so as Google search him in because we were the only ones that didn't know like the people in town. Like the people who were in the business who were there were the people who didn't know who was everybody else was there to see him and we're singing all the songs and we were like. Fans everyone else was like fans, right. Yes the silly music row people were standing there trying to figure out how they. How they can talk to this guy and I figured it out real quick. It was Turkey hunting and deer hunt. I. Went pretty well after that. It was I remember when I so Jonathan I've probably told him the story before but so me and rob one of the guys in my band Wilford right with stuff we were like. We're like still super. John Singleton. Fans you know like. We're listening to the Grove we're in deep were in the wormhole John Singleton you know, and so the year before that like one year to the day was the anniversary before that. Me And rob went to watch you play. At this thing and you're at the bar getting a beer and we were just kind of sitting like no one was around you. And that way we were just kind of like we were just kind of looking over I'm like. Dude. That's asked him you know. Like. And we just went over there and we're like. John Singleton..

"About his hope for the future. Here's what else he had to say. needed. Luke counts welcome to inside the studio you, you have some guests with you. Would you would you mind introducing them? Yes? Yes. I have chip here in Jonathan. My producers here very handsome. Jonathan's making white trash spit. Cup. Boys. Why don't you tell me a little bit about yourself here gentlemen let's let's do that. Hey, I'm Jonathan Singleton and been a songwriter and Guitar Player and. Barbecue cooker for a long time kidding about the barbecue cooker thing. And been friends for a long time. We've done a lot of songwriting together done a lot of playing together and. was excited to jump in here and do some do some production stuff with chip matty's chip. Matthews and. I have been around Nashville for a long time working in the trenches engineering producing. And I met Luke a few years back through CAPI I believe and some Sony stuff and we got the opportunity to work together a few times. And then I was lucky enough for him to invite me to work with Jonathan on this record. So that's where we are today so. Luke I know you've talked a little bit. Live. Streams about what Corentin has been like for you. You you you have gotten to enjoy a little bit of time off the road play some call of duty. Turkey hunting at your place. Also, I believe you've been raising some chickens. Yes. That has been the the bulk of my activity over the last six months or so Turkey hunting only for a couple of months obviously. But yeah, lot some call of duty I. Appreciate you saying that and not. An ASS load of duty, which is probably more realistic. But no yes. I mean I've just been hanging out. I just got married. A month ago today which was great, and so I've just been spending time with. My wife, which is still weird saying that still still not used to saying that yet. But yeah, it's been really a really weirdly good. Strangely great year a lot of ways and you know it's Kinda sucked ass and a lot of ways to I guess you know you've also been doing some writing and recording during the pandemic and. Of course. You've heard six feet apart and I know the story behind that is you had a songwriting session scheduled in April. You didn't WanNA. Let it go and tell me how did the idea of of writing about what was actually going on right then I come up and then how was writing and recording that song different than usual. So I had a right scheduled with Brent Cobb and Rob Snyder and I hadn't written with Brent before. So I was really want to do that because really big fan of his and he's really great what he does and so Brent lives in Georgia and so he was. Doing it over facetime or something. So we all like zoom I texted them. The night before and I was like hey. Should we just write you know a song about this stuff or whatever, and they actually sent me. That tidal and they were like we were actually talking about this before. You. Texas. So we were all kind of on this just happened to be on the same page with it. And we wrote it the next morning it was probably like. Hour and a half maybe or something, and we were like done with it because it was just kind of like just kind of fell out because it was just everything that was because of the corn teams like super, new and weird time and. Like things were. Very uncertain. But now realizing that they were less uncertain I guess than they are now even probably but at that time that was like. Really Weird. Because we and we kind of all like, oh, it'll be over in you know may or whatever, and that's kind of what we all think, Oh yeah. Those happy days when we thought this would ever end. Yes it was like Oh this'll be done in six weeks. It'll be you know we'll be good summer common. We'll be good and they and and so then I you know I I hid up chip. Here and I was like man like let's just go and because I put the song I played the song. I. Think the next night on. Instagram or something something like that and and got a really solid response out of it and sounds like man we should just record this thing and nothing else going on because there was a recording moratorium from Sony. We weren't supposed to be doing anything. And so I had to kind of go through. And Express An are what you wanted to do. And then. Had to find a studio that was willing to let us in which was that was like really strict at that. Yeah. It was very insanely. And I. Think it was really honestly that had been working with those guys and been with him in person and I was like, Hey, can I get into this thing and when we first started talking about it was small and they were like sure and then when we showed up that day The owner came down. He's like this is a lot more than I thought you bring in how how many folks were you bringing in? Well, we still cut lean we cut with. I think we cut four peace. On light and then I only had it. Was Me You You're there Massey was there. Yeah. Second Engineer. Very. Crew, and we were never in the same room with the with the musicians. We never even entered the same room as them either. No we had we had. We got separate space for Luke that was not even part of the main studio right and then. We had to submit protocols to label into the studio, and then really kind of had to go on the down low because I think people were still kind of coming to terms with. That we shouldn't be doing that and. All it took was somebody getting infected in that window we would have been we were shut down for sure. So really getting in fast and then we got the song and overdubbed it and one guy one guy is just peeled off and left and never even came in the control room. They just came into their booth, the recorded and then left kind of waved on the way out. Yeah. So that was really weird But we try to keep it simple so that we could get what we needed and move on and then And then I guess you sang right then. Yeah. We got the final. We we kind of just put a MIC IN A. Room right there. Yeah. We're all the musician guys were and just cut like three passes and that was it. We were out of there. And it was like, what? Three hours four hours yeah. About four hours probably and then. And it was mastered two days later. I mean, the results are great and it it is such. A moving song. Especially, you know from from my perspective because I care so much about music that the whole part about. You know it's a mystery how long this thing goes but they'll be crowds and they'll be shows, which is something we're all looking forward to, and we're still in that mystery moment. So. There are six new tracks on this deluxe version of the record and six feet apart newly written newly recorded. I, know some of these other songs have been around for a little while. We're any of them newly written written under these quarantine times. He's were some that we've been hold onto for a while of them were probably around I know. Two of them were around when I recorded this album that's out now. And so one of them was the other the other guy that's been around for. Three.

"So I guess, this time out is luke combs who has just released a deluxe edition of his second album. What you see is what you get in the deluxe edition adds five new songs to the one new song. Six feet apart. To Song about the pandemic that Luke added to the album in May. So all in all, that's impressive. One Hour and twenty one minutes of foot stomping songs about beer. Good Times and broken hearts. As, well as slow ones about family. Memories. And the kind of love that could make a man stop stopping his feet and settled down. High caught up with Luke on a day in September that was special in two kinds of ways I. He'd been up early that morning. To help announce the nominations on Good Morning America, and in fact, he snagged six nominations himself including album of the year and entertainer of the year. But Second Luke was celebrating his one month anniversary. And it takes a special kind of lady to appreciate a man who writes songs comparing their bond to the match made up in heaven between good old boys and beer the way luke does in better together but luke. Luke combs found her and in August he married Nicole Hawking his girlfriend since two thousand sixteen although as he told me. They didn't know exactly where they were getting married. Until the last minute, we had to change our venue a before the wedding. which was very interesting and we actually didn't know. We had two different venues and we didn't decide until the morning of the wedding which and what brought the change on what was the reason for the change well. So we ended up getting we were GONNA get married in Key West. And the city imposed Harsher Kovic regulations the week before the wedding. and. So we were gonNA invite it was going to be about one hundred and seventy five. People at the wedding and there they wouldn't allow any gatherings over fifty. So we had to cut from one five to fifty the like the week before the wedding. Find a new venue finding new hotels. Get everyone that we still need to be there. And then when we got there There was a hurricane coming to the snack area which up until the night before I. Guess it was Friday. Evening it was like. Fifty fifty chance like this hurricanes either GonNa. Come. The. Right exactly where we're at orange GONNA fear off. And it was an I'm trying to think what the right joke is for a guy who has a hit song called. Hurricane thought. Actually. Thought. About that a lot of times during during that process. But so it was we had to make it to. Get married at this outside place. Or Get married in the conference room at a hotel which would have been terrible. So luckily, it missed us when we didn't have to do that about that. Hurricane Hurricane is aus which caused significant damage when it did hit the US in August. But the loop comb song about a break-up. Released independently on Luke's third EP in. Two, thousand fifteen. It did so well, it it helped lead to his signing by. Columbia Nashville. rereleased the song in two, thousand, sixteen at which point it became the first of Luke's nine number one country singles. Like a lot of rappers these days early on in his career Luke tapped the power of social media to build up a significant following an independent artists before he ever signed to a major label, and while that might be a common story in hip hop. It's a little bit more unusual in Nashville. And we comes is thirty now, which makes him a solid citizen of Gen Y.. So when he was starting out in his early twenties, it was natural for him to use fine instagram snapchat twitter to get his music out and connect with people. In fact, he's such a solid citizen of. That when I his managers, Chris Capi and Lin Oliver Klein for billboard last year. Capi told me a story about how when he first met Luke five years ago in two thousand fifteen he had to convince luke to use facebook because Luke thought of facebook. As. Not You know. Cool. Anyway happy. Started a facebook group for Luke's fans. It's called the bootleggers and things pretty much exploded from there. So, when what you see is what you get came out last November. It debuted at number one. And it set a record for the biggest streaming first week for a country album ever. Seventy four million on demand audio streams, which is on top of the two point seven billion. Sorry. Let me say that again, two point seven, billion on demand streams that luke had racked up since he started releasing music in twenty fourteen. Okay. So Luke combs is a country superstar with a record setting digital approach. That's a little bit futuristic for Nashville, but his music itself is a throwback. His songs are built around solid narratives and super sharp word play. These are old school values and his songs are packed with details. There's the guy in a song called when it rains, it pours from his first album this one's for you and and and the the the scene goes from a fight with his girlfriend to a three week run of good luck that starts with him pulling into a shell on I sixty five there those details and winning one hundred bucks a scratch off ticket which rhymes with bought to twelve packs and a tank of gas with it. Or on what you see is what you get, there's a song called little bit helps which packs a lot of detail into just justice first line. This futons I crashed on in college well, it in our bed but at least it don't smell like you right there in twenty words get the break up. The Guy Moving out. He's moving backwards to the tiny slept on in college, but he's trying to take a step forward. To get some sadness some anger some lost some heartbreak and what I just said it out loud. I noticed the internal rhyme of futons and crashed on which fill me with a new level of respect for the craft of songwriting here. But in addition to being well written, most of the songs on what you see is what you get her pretty hard rocking and it's long been true that if you were one of the people sitting around wondering you've rock is dead you are not spending much time listening to country. You're going to see it why because country has been the new arena rock for more than a minute now? But. But what you see is what you get is some very big league southern rock again. Before. The pandemic forced him to postpone his tour Lucas scheduled to headline arenas this year and the dates included some stadium shows. As Luke and his Co writer, Jonathan, Singleton and his producer chip Matthews explained to me. They wrote songs like a beer never broke my heart because they needed some music big enough to fill those spaces. Loop talk with me about the cabin he rents where it will spend two weeks at a time writing songs and drinking beers, and it helps that there's a TV but there's no xbox. And he he also talked about how he was overseas in March he was scheduled to play the country to country festival brings country music to the UK into Berlin. and. He was out during night a celebration having a good time when he got a call saying, he had to get himself on a plane the very morning. Because the United States had issued a travel alert due to covert nineteen. Luke talked about his early days when you spending six months straight on the road and nothing but a van with his manager Capi driving and he also talked.

"That. I couldn't call him a dick no matter how much I wanted to I was like I think this guy is so ignorant in over his head that I don't even think that he's trying to create malice but he just doesn't know any better <hes> but I think listening to him in the car on the way to that rose ceremony and him being like I know without a shadow of a doubt that Hannah is still in love with me and like truly believe that there is a possibility for her to accept the ring and he had I and bring it was nuts in that's where I was like. I cannot defend. I can't give this guy even the sliver of the benefit of the doubt anymore because in in my opinion that whole scene was completely narcissistic nick tasteless does she doesn't like calling him that word when I don't well I feel like I don't know I just like that. Allows everybody else to call them. That and I just don't like no names I agree. I don't like the term psychopath or crazy artistic cystic. I think he was sure yeah. I think when you involve a word like psychopath into the conversation when we're watching the Bachelorette I think it it gets to a degree like tasteless said the is absurd. Yeah I think that psychopath is not a word that I wanNA use with him but I think like for the fact that he thought that he was so special in that he couldn't even comprehend and the idea that she thinks she'd be better suited with another guy made him seem a little bit self center beyond beyond the norm definitely came off self-centered even in last episode where she was sending him home and he wouldn't even get up yeah. You wouldn't even leave the chair if you think about it. There have been like multiple times throughout the season that she quote unquote did send him home or could have sent him home and she continued to keep him there <hes> like she sent him home and then he came back in in her eyes and she keeps allowing this behavior so it's like why she was encouraging. You think he's been validated before you know what I mean. He's obviously coming from a place of her validating him in his feelings to play devil's advocate here. This is my favorite thing to do. I agree that none of us are clinical psychologists to be able to go and say who isn't who isn't a psychopath right but this dude is such an outlier to the most extreme extent that we've seen in a long time that level-headed normal people can look at his actions and be like those are pretty psychopathic psychopathic Hamza's throwing the name yeah. It's a good idea I think so and I also want to say in. I'm trying not say this in a mean way whatsoever so ever but I also think Luke P is in way over and is maybe not in a place in his life right now where he's ready for a situation like this because I don't think that he has the I don't want to call him unintelligent <music> but a lot of his behavior even at the mental he took such long pauses because he couldn't think of what to say. I don't think he needed to be careful with his wording because it's words have been used against the entire season and guess Dean do not shake your head right now in his words as you were used against again at the mental because everything he just like if you win disregard it doesn't regret anything he thinks that even the hypocrisy which we all saw with the virginity talk because he's not a virgin I understand I understand the born again part of it but the Apocrypha say that Hannah who omitted on the show last week she only had sex with two people before this to use that against her and then say that he didn't think it was wrong and he wasn't being hypocritical..
"luke p" Discussed on The Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous Podcast
"I thought Hannah had probably like we said had wounds opened up earlier in the season so that when he started talking about this she resorted back to those thoughts when he did shame her when he did guilt her and so she reacted in a defensive manner which put him on the defense and put her on the defense and they just want at each other and that's one thing that was sad because because I do think they could have had a really healthy conversation about this but what Luke did is once again he approaches this and in a very I would almost say chauvinistic way way yes. His toxic masculinity has covered up the course thing that he was trying to say which is Hannah. I love you so much in as my future wife I want you healthy. I want you thriving. I want you feeling joy in feeling hope filled and for whatever reason he feels like sex is taking that away now. Here's my question though and it's an a style he's approached the beginning. Here's the hardest part for me is any Christian can do this. No let them do this to you. You can throw the Bible in the face and say there's a tweet that Luke p started to give last night and it said I just want people to hear Biblical truth. Now I get. I think think your heart is probably in a decent place. Good place in your heart but let's not throw the Bible and people space as a weapon to shut down the conversation. You were wrong brother. You're wrong and how you approached Hannah you came at that would judgment and criticism and win. Luke has judgement criticism isolation and anger and any type of discord resolve around those done anything to perpetuate true when is biblical truth ever been shared successfully through through the motivation of shame in jail now. Don't tell me that he didn't come about this from a place of shame and guilt. He used words like you owe me. He used words that reference that if she did mess up Oh don't worry polio luke will be there to catch you luke humble yourself confront whatever insecurities are going on in your own life realize that yes God does love you. He also does love Hannah and that is a massive topic that Christian non-christian male female whatever you identify as we are talking about and we are discussing allow that discussion to happen do not put the conversation in a corner from the beginning and that's exactly what you did you mentioned sex you surrounded it with a bunch of negative terms and negative connotations pushing hand into a corner to allow her to get defensive instead of opening up and saying hey as a Christian and my conviction is that sex before marriage is not appropriate. It's not healthy. It's not good and as a woman I love and my future wife..
"luke p" Discussed on Reality TV RHAP-ups: Reality TV Podcasts
"But I, I am someone television and do have a pretty basic understanding of the English language yet, none of it coming together made any sense in the scene, or when Hannah was talking to Luke later in the episode either show. What happened? I'm not even sure I definitely watch that part. They Ethan even rewind it a little bit until be like, okay. So what's going on? They were just like arguing about who sucks more inflict, guys, you both suck equally, and I won't be Hannah just like gets up and is like you know what I'm done here, and then she cancelled the rest of the cocktail party and then, you know, they're starting to row ceremony and Luke s asks Hannah for a second, and she clearly doesn't want to, you know, any I wouldn't recommend going back and watching this first ten minutes, but maybe try and find this clip, because she, she truly does not want to go talk to him this, she does. And he basically says, Luke is a snake in the grass, blah, blah. What we've been hearing all along, and then he decided to leave, which is kind of a point, I seem to miss until we get back to the rose ceremony and Chris's taking away one of the roses. And you know, you're just like what's going on? I can't remember if he said, air Hannah said it, but, you know, one of them say, yeah, look decided show-me filth. Oh, wait. That's what happened. I have no idea. That's really what it was. God, it was weird. It was so weird. That is weird. I mean I wonder if she can kind of see that's what's happening. And she was like, no, I don't want to give you the satisfaction of walking out when I wanted to you the rose at the rose ceremony or if she was just like just really annoyed with both of them and did not have any more time with them. But I don't think she was going to send him home. Really? I don't because. My friend, sent me this message during the episode. You know, because spoiler alert for later in the episode Luke p does get the second one on one day, and she said, you know, quoting Luke, I'm just ready to do, whatever we had planned to do. An Emily says this is it this is the date. There was no activity. There's definitely supposed to be a two on one. And then the other Luke Peacedale. And now your data activity is just sitting and talking. Oh my gosh. Is totally, like the two on one setting like just. Yeah. Lifts they have dinner later on. Yeah. And then they really seemed weird that they're trying to like make that date. Yeah. And she says one Luke was definitely supposed to be left on the cliff while the other others left down the helicopter totally. It's like straight out of Caitlyn season, actually, it was like, cupcake was left suiting cliff crying. Oh, gosh. That is. So true. Yeah. So, you know, then taking went Chris went took out the rose. It's because well, like Luke was gone, and that was one of the roses. Oh, yeah. Because what they need to take it away. When I needed someone else, take his spot something interesting. Yeah. So I really liked Emily's theory there. I'm my into that one hundred percent. Exactly. I, I am too. All right. So then the rose ceremony happens and. The pig drama. I guess is seeing if Luke p is going to get one of the roses. Oh, I'm so surprised he ended up with one between him and gay PJ and someone who I don't know was there. Yeah. Truly could not tell you which guy just went home..
"luke p" Discussed on Chicks in the Office
"Feelings for him are so strong like she's not just going to send him she'll let him linger for a few more weeks, and hopefully fizzles after that, but stronger than anybody, anybody else. She likes him the most the or the feelings are stronger than anybody else. What is not a good. Not a good sign to be sad, if she starts to send home like the guys I love in favor of Luke p that. That is going to be a problem. We'll have a problem. But I also think if Luke s I'm not necessarily rooting Lucas day, though. But I do think of Luke us goes home and not Lupi it's kind of bullshit. All right now, you're just Hannah like come on. You not seeing it rarely. But again, it is the bachelor, it is the bachelorette, right? It's like. Yeah. Pick the short straw. Right. One of all the guys who don't like Luke p right? He's the one who's gonna get sent home for not liking Luke. When everybody else doesn't like him. Exactly. That's kinda you know how it goes. But he'll get a nice little seed in paradise if he goes home got a nice little spot. So we'll see what happens very excited for the continuation next week. I want to go on. Game. Rock. You. Doc you about him. We have a very special guest the lovely tan, France. Thank you so much for joining us. You welcome three chicken, the office. Now. Yes. Yep. We have had you on the show before you came to the Barcelo offices, and you saw how grossly are. But we upgraded..
"luke p" Discussed on The Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous Podcast
"I don't think the show can start incorporating that into okay Hannah you miss this. But there you go. I don't think we can because it brings to it would allow then what happens when there's an argument that the bachelor bachelorette doesn't see, but they know is going on. And then what stops the bachelor bachelorette from being, we'll this'll be the watch it you guys have been videotaping. So I don't think so. I think it would. Yeah, that's an answer to that question. And Secondly, Luke p said, I'm gonna fight for Hannah, I refuse to quit. I'll never quit on her. When it says, I'm gonna fight for Hannah like, do you believe that a guy should like physically? He was like physically fighting like the physical battle one would win her over in any capacity. Yeah, I don't know where he's getting his his insight from. But yeah, that no, I don't think I've. I actually have not dated anybody that has believed that unwarranted fighting as attractive, right? Yeah. But it also I think and what she probably was telling him last week is a relationship is not about one side, fighting for the other. It's a partnership grimy ultimately, both sides are working together to figure out if this is going to be something that's mutually beneficial for, for the team that you're creating. It's not one side fighting to win a love. Right. Like at that point. It's the there's no relation chats. Like makes it seem like he's just in this for the competition. But then last week I said doesn't even seem like he's in it for the competition because once he's losing he wants to just back out and click it. So he's back competitor v. And we're seeing that I think actually, I think this is one of the first times in a long time. That I've watched a season. And it was interesting Jess. So I was voicing this, the Jess last night, and I was like, why am I so like almost sad for this guy? Like I'm sad. Like because I, I don't want. I I I've learned enough on the show. And you've learned we've talked about it to be slow to judge. I know and just goes than you need to talk to him be. I haven't called him because he makes me angry. But I also know that when typically when somebody makes me angry, there's a reason why that's either I'm insecure about or that there's a legit reason why need to like, get it out of them. And it selfishly where I'm going, I think a lot of the country's going loopy. Why are you being we good looking dude, man? And you want to do. What's right. You wanna do its best when you're calm and collected your, your intentions are good. It's when you have this, all of a sudden, this reactionary moment, and things get heated. And you say things that just. Are healthy for anybody? I mean at one point. During the show is he sits down with Hannah after a long week and he goes, I know this week has been hard for you, but it's been hard for me also. And I'm like just make it about her for now. So that's where on this whole thing, ash. I'm just encouraging all of our listeners to continue to engage in their relationship to continue to tweak at the small words like that and say, oh, he could have said that better. But also, let's be careful to how we act to general statements about Luke p that we don't know, yet, because he is a human. He's a real person. He joined the show to allow us all to be entertained by him. We just need to be careful myself included. Definitely myself included on what internally Howard judging him as a as a person we, let's, let's wait till we get to meet Lupi a little bit more, which is typically either impaired ice or post show or if he's with Hannah, we get to meet him, you know as their. Doing press..

"You're so empathetic towards them and frustrated because they're frustrated. But with Luke, as I just felt like I just didn't want to root for him either. I knew that he was more in the right then looked pay off. Isley. There wasn't you feel that I did. I wasn't aside as a as a viewer. I was pulling for. And I wonder if our listeners, pulling for Luke ask, because he represented all the guys. But you didn't you weren't pulling for not at all. I, I would agree with you, and I want to hear from our listeners. Who are you pulling for, if any and why maybe you were were you weren't emails have been nationally, iheartmedia dot com? Luke s the first time I started rooting for him. Was once Luke p I will call almost lied. I hand, I agree. I was the first time I say, Lucas, you're in the right you're confused. This is swirling around you faster than what anybody can process, and as a result, you're getting thrown out of the rub for something that you really haven't done wrong, but actually, I need to take a second and pauses here because this is where I want to redirect this so far. I want to break down. What we've said, we've said that both of these are harder to root for Luke p has not handled himself well, and this could be detrimental long-term in Lucas is acting childish now. That's why I wanna pause this because I want us to be very careful because this is another moment that we record that I recognized are in this, what I love again about doing almost famous podcast is that we can break down these episodes and break down these people in these scenarios, right? We wanna find as viewers were fans when a find out what's happening. I think there was a moment during while watching this. That I started to feel like we need to be very careful again because this is this is detrimental long-term to Luke p this almost fell it feels weird. Now for me, and I don't wanna see him mess up anymore. Like this was at first, you know, it's kind of like Cam like we watch, and we're like, oh, Cam seems like a nice guy, but he's, he's just not doing it. Right. Any saying things that are absolutely ridiculous. And he's his behavior is unwarranted and weird. But he's, he's probably he's, he's gonna be fine. Like people are going to laugh him a little bit. But he's fine. Right. There was a moment watching this, that I don't wanna see Luke p mess up anymore because it's, it's, it's hard for me to watch somebody's life. Get blown up on the show, and it feels like it's getting really close to that. And I'm scared that this, this show is no longer just funding games and something that you could possibly meet somebody, you could you, you don't that this will last a long time, and it could be really hard for him. Okay. For first mental health. Yeah. I want to see the I don't know how he stay. I don't. I don't know how he is mentally. But I, I do know that this, this, if I was Luke, I would be struggling right now, and I think we need to be careful as viewers in his fans. No matter where you're at out there of what we say on Twitter. I mean every week, this guy has been trending, and it's never been for a good thing, right? A two questions for you. Should have gotten like an instant replay of what happened out on the field because she didn't see this collision. No. Because there wasn't like I mean, we, we do have the benefit of being on TV, but I don't think you could ever..
"luke p" Discussed on The Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous Podcast
"That's why you're on the show. But this is where it feels like. It's getting this, this episode to me felt very real and it was too intense to do not think that people should be he said that people's character comes out while they're in competitive sport. But do you nothing that they should be judged by their behavior one competing? No, I do. And I think that's where this gets scary, as I, I watched this episode, especially for Luke p, and I'm like this will this will ask with you a long time like this is the first moment. All the other stuff was kinda goofy and weird. And like kind of, you know, his JP j. Yeah. Like he could just like say, and this is where I was watching Lupi. And I was like, oh, this is this is going to haunt him. Poche. Oh, you just tackled. A grown, man television and supposedly need him in the face calling itself to fatten and calling itself defense against quite honestly, and I think if Lucas would would be fine, if he sat here, kind of set it like my mom and dad didn't raise me to be like this. Like it's Lucas, and I think a guy on the show said like you're not threatened by that, man like especially you like you're not threatened by Lucas. Yeah. At least you should. It's like me trying to tackle like Lupi. Right. He's like it's bed like, right? I'm not threatened by this man. Right. Right. Right. I mean it's awkward. And, and so that's where that group day ends, and it leads us into the cocktail hour where things get really interesting. Now it's either time for Luke p to apologize and Luke s to. Or double down on what they said before, if Luke p was smart, no matter what he truly believes happened in there. And he if he thinks it was defense whatever he should have still apologized to Luke for getting rougher than he should have in a bachelorette game. His his apology still weren't, like real apology. They were still protecting himself. They're defending himself. I was like, I'm sorry. But I'm sorry about and I've hit a grown man before. Okay. One time my life. Tell us it's, it's a side so we will talk belly. I don't want to talk about. And once I did it, it felt right? Like it felt good at the time like my rage came out, and then we were buddies and two hours later once it all calm down, like all I wanted to do was apologize. And I think you see that a lot with fighting like that's where brothers fight. That's why parents sometimes allow there. There's the, the brothers to fight, because what it does is it. It allows both parties to get out what they need. But then all most of the time when you're, you're when you have some, some time to calm down. All you want to do is the politics to the people that you love and hurt. No matter if you're in the right or not. Right. It's an Luke p didn't do that. And this is. But, but honestly, I I didn't love how either Luke scandal. That's why you said before you're like I'm sure you have a lot to say this. I'm like, honestly, I remember really sure because I don't particularly like either one of them. Well, and I said, Lucas is kind of acting childish, and Luke p won't take responsibility for anything. That's, that's honestly, how I broke this down this, horrid man. Would you agree? Yeah. I mean, I feel like people respond to you can respond to conflict and get involved in the drama and still and feel like a sense of. Okay. This is so hard to explain on this show. I feel like people can get involved in drama and either they can be like it's not warm. But there's there's something about you. That's like I'm so on their side. There's so right..

"They all signed up to his poly in Vinnie. So I don't know why the guy met the same thing we show. Exactly. It's the same thing with lewke just really there's always somebody on the show. Can't get over the fact that there are other people and they and they lose it, most the time they end up just leaving on their own. I'm hoping that's what happens with Luke. Yeah. But he of course he's the first person to pull Hannah side when they get the nighttime date. And I think he thinks he he's just telling Hannah what she wants to hear like he's just spewing these lines at her. And he's like, I don't think any of these other guys are worthy of being your husband or like are worthy of beat, like being I forget what it was. He said exactly the. Other guys don't have what it takes to be her husband. And she was like, what is wrong with you? She did not hold back. I thought she was great handles. You are your confidence is becoming a turnoff. Yes. Borderline cocky, which I really hate. Yeah. I was shocked to because I, I think said this last week that I was shocked that Hannah be can't smell the bullshit. Like, how can't you see that Lupi is just so annoying? But last night, she literally looked him in the face and was like, listen, there's a side of you that I really like then there's a side of you that's cocky, and confident that I just really don't like like she straight up locked him in the I was like I don't like it at all. Which I love, I think, Hannah is a great bachelorette so far, she doesn't let anybody push her around, she stands her ground. She has been really, really good. I think that we were all worried in the beginning like how she going to be able to handle this. She's been doing a great topic, especially with how she's handling these guys really, really laying down the law. I don't lie. Like you like I don't like what you're doing. And instead of just being like, yeah, let's talk bubble, whatever. She's like, no wait. Your turn. I got other guys. I wanna talk to my head almost exploded after this conversation when Luke was just talking to the camera. And he was like, I'm just going to pretend like that conversation never happened. Okay. Let's exactly what you should not do, like Hannah just told you exactly how she feels and you're like, I'm just gonna pretend like that conversation didn't happen. Yeah, it just she wanted you to take that conversation and use it so that you stop being that way. But he won't take that, and that's why we're gonna see Lupi explode in the upcoming weeks for now, Luke p has been put on hold because Cam came back with his annoyance, I said that Cam, and Luke p were in a battle of who could be more annoying last night. And it was just a back and forth. Like I it was can Luke. And then Cam came back and fully took the lead fully took the Lia. So you explain what? Happened here. Okay. Well, first of all, Luke, just, you know, disappeared, right? And he kept coming back..

"Trust me. I felt the same way the first night, I was a little bit like. Okay. Guys outfit can really change the way his face'll. Yeah. So it did it was like. A but his face but. In the opposite way, I was like, oh, my God, what I need to help them so much. But like this is them and like, oh, this is scary. But then after we started having dates, and I was like, okay. All right. I can deal with this. This is good. This is good. Yeah. But ultimately like yeah. There were some that I was like interesting. But I will say like I wanted attractive guy. I want them to be attractive, but. I am okay with like. They don't have to be like a supermodel nothing like I just want them to have a good, heart and be fun. And so I think that was a lot of my guys too. But it, it was more of like a growing to be attracted some of them. Okay. Truthfully. Interesting. Yeah. I like your honesty. Yeah. I can't help it like I'm Mike, probably shouldn't say that. But I can't help it like I don't know how to not be honest about certain things. So, yeah. The first night, I was a little bit worried. Okay. Great. Yeah. Second night, I felt so much better, right. Yeah. I felt better. Oh, okay. They look cute in their normal clothes. Yeah. You don't like guys that have necessarily a sense of mystery. You don't like hard to get. We don't have to watch you too much to know that you like a guy who is aggressive and forthcoming about his feelings. Yeah. So how do you, you didn't think that Luke p was a little bit too early with his feelings? Because you had the biggest grin you loved hearing every word of what he was saying to you early on within forty eight. Hours of really knowing you, do you think that you've gotten like less naive throughout this process? Or do you are you just like somebody who wants to hear those words? Okay. I feel like with Luke, especially those first that first night, I think it kind of went back to my past of the guy that I dated for forever. I didn't know how this feeling a lot. He wasn't stereos in it hooked me hook line and sinker or awhile. Then I dated the next guy that I was really that I did love. And he was more like I want to pursue you. I know it hasn't been that long since your last relationship. I don't care like I want to you and that relationship for me. And like he was very like our faith aligned that was a relationship that I realize there, guys like this out there, that don't like beat around the Bush about their intentions, like I wanna know somebody's here for me. And that was like, what I learned from that relationship from that could be like something that I wanted, and I feel like when Luke was just like, hey, this how feel about you. I'm really into you. I was into him in like that he was just like look like I like you. I'm here for you. If there was anybody else here, I wouldn't be here, and I wanted to know that, and I think also that came from some insecurity of I wasn't. I feel like I was the dark horse as the bachelorette inside to know that somebody truly wanted it to be me was, like almost like a sigh of relief. Like, okay this person real in one thousand. That is that was true about lake like he it was it was a lot. But like he meant everywhere he was saying. And yeah, I just it gave me hope for the rest of the season. I feel like like okay like this could work and like the first night, they didn't show it as much..
