"I'll ask her. I'll call her up. Okay, thank you, and let us know what she says. I will, I'll report back. Thanks. Okay. Well, stay tuned next week, you guys. Exclusive into my FaceTime with Kim Kardashian. I love it. Another vision board goal for the pod. No. What else was in these few episodes? Okay, so then I guess we kind of are right. We did talk about Scott. We started with Scott. So I guess we did go backwards. Yeah. Okay, so I have a couple of things right now. Okay. Why is Ellen such a close family friend? Why would you know? I thought that was weird. I did. Especially because Ellen's kind of not cool anymore and I feel like the Kardashians don't like to associate with people who are not cool. And her show's being canceled. It's done after next year, I think, or maybe this year. Yeah. I didn't realize Portia was there, too, though. I didn't see her. Yeah, she was sitting next to Ellen at the table. But I don't know if I would have recognized it as her, had I not seen her little name earlier. Okay, that makes sense. Yeah, I don't think I see the saw that. Well, they're kind of a weird couple to me. They confuse me. Yeah, me too. I feel like there's some stuff going around about the relationship, and I don't remember what it was, but it was something icky. Something like distasteful about how Ellen treated Porsche or something like that. I don't remember what it was, but. I don't remember. There's so much bad stuff learning around about Ellen though. It's hard to decipher. Yeah, exactly. Okay, then I noticed the grandmother MJ walking around the background with a neck race in a walker. And I couldn't help, but link that to how Chloe had it out for her after she released that photo of Chloe untouched. And so my theory is that Chloe beat up MJ..

"Of your financial health and we look at this in a very diplomatic way One that can actually add to your wealth is a long term Yeah long term definitely I'll tell you MJ Elizabeth and I have helped hundreds of investors with their finances and we've seen plenty of money mistakes and we've corrected an awful lot of them over the years You know this is something that we say now Remember that old saying cash is king Cash is king Well today we say cash is trash in reference to total return There's no return You mentioned it a minute ago It's an asset class It's part of your asset allocation but it's very sleepy It's not making anything but it's so important So I receive an email from someone to said to me I have tons of cash that's eroding in my bank account What can I do with it Right right And he was right he said about 500,000 in cash Which is a huge amount of money to not have it invested That is the definition of going broke safely Well he's very safe but he's going broke Well because inflation is growing a lot faster So your cache is in the bank And I just have this image in my head and I can't remember whether this was like a TV show or a movie where a very frugal man had like piles of cash and they were put away The piles of cash were stashed and when he went to look at his cash rats had eaten That's gotta be the worst feeling ever Oh my God Who ate my cash Oh my gosh The rats ate all his cash They make a nest with all that paper I'm trying to think of other examples of erosion That's an example of erosion right Right Oh my gosh yeah that would be a retirement nightmare I can't imagine to say the very least But you know again when we talk about cash now more than ever it's so important to have a plan because you've got this asset class that is purely safe It's FDIC insured If you're invested appropriately at the banks So you've got this guarantee but it's not growing It's the return at most of what I call I refer to them as the fat and happy banks These are the fat and happy Wall Street banks we know who they are They're on every other corner They're big big sound financial banks But they're paying nothing They're paying nothing You get free coffee and do they still give cookies No because they're pandemic You can't have all that open for food Also you know one thing it's always an indicator to me is when these big big huge bank brands you know the big giant banks Right When they keep opening up new branches all over the place and you keep driving by and its future home is so and so banking you just see cinder blocks in the buildings going up all over the place What does that mean It kind of means that that kind of fat and happier aren't they Yeah They certainly are You know there was a saying we used to say back in the 90s you go to any major city The two biggest buildings are going to be banks and insurance companies Right And they are And if not that followed by brokerage firms Yes Which most of the big banks are owned by brokerage firms You know if you really break it down and look at it And it's not their fault I mean let's not pick on them for the full show But let's address the fact that it's not their fault It's the fed It's the monetary policy interest rates as we all know are basically nothing But it's a catch 22 You've got to have a good emergency fund You've got to have cash You've got to have accessibility I think one of the things that a lot of listeners think is true but it's not They think that when you deal with a financial planner when you deal with a financial adviser all your money is tied up And that's not true That's not true Well maybe for some financial adviser who do that We have had some very very sad sad experience knowing that financial advice is out there don't do the right thing as a fiduciary and not a producer Right Take all the clients money and put it into one investment Right And that's absolutely terrible We do see that You know I'll tell you MJ there's three things that we call the fundamentals of investing And that is having safety in your portfolio The second thing is a decent return whether it's a total capital appreciation or if it's like monthly income and the third thing is having plenty of liquidity Liquidity is your freedom Don't jeopardize your freedom Make sure you have a ton of liquidity inside your portfolio So how do you make sure that your cash balance is right you have the liquidity that Steve's talking about Well it starts with making sure you have a customized financial plan Of course everyone's different Everyone's going to have different requirements And this is where we invite you to call the office call Steve and Elizabeth Holland at the Holland group retirement wealth advisers at 727-228-6449 just call the office and of course cash management How much to have on hand This is all one of the components Just one of the components.

"Type thing michael jackson impersonator and all types of weird just going to get you know. Actually miami is going to come up and there's also there's other websites will come about. Dick salad will come up on gig salad. I would say ninety nine percent of the time. My profile comes up. I'm the one that actually living. Yes that's gonna come talk to. My profile was the first one right. Because you're within the area. I live in pine but i live in south florida right. So that's what i'm saying. I i i want to ask him. Inspirational question What do you say to the person who wants to impersonate. Not just michael jackson but but any artists out there. What do you say to that person right now. What would you think they should do. You know it's not even in it's not even just being impersonator just any whatever it is that you to do any kind of entertainment whether you want to be a singer or rapper any form of entertainment that you would like to you know be involved in. It's not gonna be easy at all you're going to go through trials and tribulations you know others are going to go through different trials and tribulations than this person. I'm going to go through something different than somebody who does. But if it's something that your heart your soul your mind and body and that's what you really want you have to learn to. Don't feed what people are saying about you those negative. It's not going to be easy. Only people that have that heart of a lion is not gonna let what people say about them affect them. And that's what i did. So i'm a big example. Because limit down here in south florida is mostly known for rappers and singers. So mean being like man would make up on and wake dressing like this people. Say most places that i go to a store happen people laughing at me but you know for such a long time that i just look past it. Yeah so you just have to. You know you're to go up. Just keep in mind. It's gonna pay off at the end of the road because i've gone although strategy relations and i'm still going through it and if i let people say about me affect me how would it be seven years. You heard that people. Persistence is key. Keep doing what you love. That is worth from m. g. m. j. I got a number last question. I thought about while you were talking there for a second As you can see. Like i said elvis is the number one impersonator. I believe right behind them. It's michael jackson but the party there my brother okay you keep going back as number one is the as to to trust me really okay when elvis died. Mj people yeah no the world the worldwide crazy. Yeah you're right. i'm just thinking because you know there's always in the alice's you could be right. Like i think that at the end of the day they're both tied and the only reason i say elvis is because it's been around so long but i think even that one time is starting to slowly pull that one away and i believe michael jackson's moving in that's number one slot but here's my question to you outside of those I believe there's marilyn. Monroe impersonators are popular. But who do you think needs some impersonating right now. For example like a lot of people say. I personally pit bull. Shall we have more pit bull in person to hurt his. Like in miami okay. Well let's manage for the community right missing. I'm thinking i'm thinking people right here. Little wayne right there. You live away. I'm not on the camera. They can't they can't see you could be. I've been told i look like Most most deaf the rapper. Alright and pit bull right here but it's not about who you look like though that's a big thing too. I thought it was you looking in the mirror. One day saying you know what. I kind of look like michael jackson. That's what i was wondering wouldn't have that moment happens to but but it was your friend that guy that you own your friend but that guy found this. I like everything happens for reasoning life. That's when i believe because you know me taken that person home. Because i think he was he makes music yes so he made use it for me a studio our dropping off and then i happen to tune into that station. 'cause i'm looking into the channel and i stopped channel yet and i heard that. Imagine that man. You wouldn't have been doing that. Guy would have been just like listening to.

"Thoughts right now on my computer. Dj how did he was like okay. Well i just want to let you know. He's just as one day one does he was like. I just want to let you know that you have the part. Don't worry about it you have it. It's yours and i looked at the phone. Like how i'm holding onto my hand right now. And i was like derive murphy. Just call me and tell me i had. I ran downstairs girl. I screamed my lungs off screams. My mom my second dad. And i just was incomplete. Joy and the rest was history. It was just a rolling avalanche down from there. Does that rihanna song now. Always take you back to that. Always takes me back to that moment. i remember. i had my computer setup. I didn't have you know a a nice computer. At that time it was low. Jank and and i remember like sitting at my little desk and being like oh my god. So yeah it's always gonna be in my head like that. And i always say that ryan murphy is literally the clive davis to my whitney. Houston literally west their chatter within the trans community when it was even announced that this show was happening and wizar- skepticism about what it would be. Yeah there was a lot of chatter in the trans community. I remember. I even heard from some of my sisters before. The auditions had even been listed one of my good friends. She was outweigh ryan. I guess at some point or she saw him at. I think an event and she said that she was having conversations with him and i was like. Oh that's great girl. That's everything. I would have a conversation. Where ryan murphy. And she was like well. You might have one girl because there's a show that's going to be coming up pretty soon and you need to go in for her name is ceecee suazo and the very next day i heard from my girl puja. Who's also part of the trans community. She was a girl. There's this show that's coming out. You need to really go in for it. Two days later. I saw the breakdowns. And i was like my sister's really demi justice by let me know about this because i probably wouldn't have never known about it. I could probably would have been going to my auditions every single day. Trying to book a job or trying to get something that was gonna make me help me survive. And i'm thankful for them so there definitely was chatter. I don't think there was this dismay. I don't think there was any worry at think. The woman that i had known in that had told me about this they had gotten great information from the source itself knowing that they were going to be good people behind this aside from the amazing ryan murphy that we're going to actually tell the stories right. I mean there's you know skepticism in everything when you don't know what's going to be happening but it was not a lot. Was there anything about the role or knowing that you are going to have this sort of platform that scared you. You know what scared me. The most about finding out that i would have gotten this road. It wasn't the platform that i got cause i've always wanted it. Ever since i was eleven years old a always wanted to be placed in this position to be a voice to be a beacon. Like i just wanted to be a voice like an forgive me for being spiritual but you know huda jesus muhammad all it on was divine. And i'm trying to be like y'all okay. Ya back in the day. I really turned it and not to mention jaba. Only miss was turning. It needs to be some women out here turning it okay so i wanted to be somewhat of a version of them because you know they were all holy in gracefully good stuff. I wanted to be a beacon of light and love like. That's how i was raised but it definitely scared me because when you place yourself in a position to be on a platform like this. There's always going to be people that do not see a for you. That do not want you to succeed in that. Do not want you to be a voice or even a beacon of hope for even sis gender young individuals out there because there are young sis jenner individuals who looked to me for hope and inspiration now and a lot of people didn't want that and that was my worry. I was scared because at the time when all of this was happening with auditions there were still dreadful. Things that were happening to trans individuals across the globe murders. And just a lot of discrimination. That was happening against us. And i was worried that when this show came out we were going to get the full onslaught of that. We were going to be told that this show does not need to be on television screens. Look at what you're doing quote unquote to our children quote unquote and i always say this. I was fooled completely because it was a full three sixty the love that i got from the people a wild me and i don't know if it's because i love so. They saw that. If i love them they can love to. I don't know maybe or blanca an angel and while the characters but i was surprisingly fooled and i'm so thankful i was fooled because if it did go the other way. I don't know how i would have mentally dealt with that. Well to that point. I think there is a lot of worry about losing a show like pose. I mean it featured the largest cast of trans actors in tv history and five of the series regulars where trans women of color. D- you feel optimistic that the gains will not be lost. I do feel optimistic. That the games will not be lost simply because i'm testimony to it. You know work has definitely been happening for me more. Which means there's definitely going to be more work happening for the youth behind me and the people that are striving right behind me. I'm here one of my arms is up and the other arms by behind me making sure that someone can grab me. That's how it is for me. So the next thing that i get it's going to be easier for the next person trailing right behind me and i do see a changing. I finally feel comfortable in my career. I finally feel seen as an actress. I have my next opportunity which is another television show and have a music video out. And i'm i'm doing all the things that i never thought that i would get. I'm dreaming big and it's happening and it's going to happen for more people. Angelica ross and india moore and dominic jackson and haley sahar. And oh alexandra. Cray and traceless said i king the list goes on the doors are wide open and i don't think it's going to stop so. Yeah i wanna talk a little bit about the final season. I mean we saw blanca pursue her nursing ambitions. We saw her began a relationship with christopher the successful doctor who's played by jeremy pope and that relationship. I mean it's a loving relationship between a man in a trans woman which is a rare representation and an important one on television. The show is often praised for the work. It's done to show the humanity of the trans community for those outside of it but that storyline also really seemed to serve as a lifeline for trans people like showing that they can be loves and what kind of love their worthy for. What did it mean to you to be able to put that out to the world. It meant so much to me. It meant the world to me before the season had happened. I have met my boyfriend before we were even filming third season and we were having back and forth conversation through facetime and we met through instagram. Which i was like. I'm a girl who wants to meet. The cousin of the brother of the sister of the mother of the auntie didn't happen that way. I met my boyfriend through instagram. And now i'm realizing that that's way normal now which i'm living for but yeah i met my boyfriend before all of this and i remember even having conversations with janna mock and even steven canals. I was like you know the people need to see that there is love out here. They don't get to see because it's not put on television screen or huge movie film theater screen. You know the more people see it on the screens. They'll actually realize how real it is and third season came. And i was like what a wonderful way i already have my understanding of how to move through a relationship because i had been with my boyfriend for about. I would say eight months at that time so it was easy for me to move into this role with germany. Pope not to mention. I knew him since i was like twenty one twenty three we all we judge out so it was easy. It was comfortable and i thought it was so important for the youth to see something like that because it is possible and it does happen all the time. It's just that you know we've been shunned so long and we've been called other than normal demonized that a lot of people just thought it wasn't palatable they thought it wasn't palatable for them but now it is and now people see love is love and when you love someone you'll do anything you will be with them until the end of time. It doesn't matter if they are a man. It does not matter if they are transforming trans man or this woman. Love is love. You know. it really doesn't matter. And i'll say this to. I'm a huge advocate for the lgbtq community. I love the hetero community. But i'm someone who tries my best not like staple myself to a label because so many of us that's humans are subject to change completely change every single year. We changed so much and to just hold ourselves to one thing it would be defeating the purpose of what is like to be an actually be together and understand people so yeah. I think poses done that at a tremendous level. It's shown what love looks like what family looks like. And how you have to fight and how love bites for you to when it's true. Even the i mean. I know this doesn't involve blanka directly but even the wedding episode from this was just a powerful i i was. I've been listening to. I swear like enrique off that episode. It's just like such a beautiful moment listening to. I swear that's my song so it's so good. You gotta do a cover of atm sway. Sorry that in the podcast baby. Well lanka's whole journey throughout the series is really centered around like leaving a lasting legacy. That's very important to her with the position that you're in and the visibility that you have. Is it something that you think about for yourself too. I always think about the lasting legacy that michaela. Jay wants to leave on the world. And i will say this blanca. And i'm gonna say this until. I probably die being that. This was the first show that i actually got to lead. And i got to be number one on. I never been number one on show. I gagged well ryan murphy. Maybe number one. I was like. Oh my god. This is ok pressures on show up but i will say this. You have so much responsibility in a show like this when you're leading it you also don't realize how it has to inflict upon you and how it it changes you and i realized in third season first and second season. I didn't wanna see myself. I was too scared to actually notice myself. And i was too scared to even look at myself to even dig deeper into really understanding blanca. Third season happened for me and har strength her perseverance. Her striving to be the best so that her kids can be the best. That was my goal when it came to my legacy. I wanted to be the best for the people who are watching around me. I needed to be the example. I'm not a mother like blanca. And i have my mother and my father and my life and i had you know my second data my life. Lgbt humidity in my life whereas blunkett didn't have any of that yet and still the woman prevailed and she got the fruits of her labor and the fruits of our labor. Were her kids succeeding. An i want my legacy to be like that for the mini fans and supporters and friends and family. That are around me when it comes to my acting career and when it comes to my music career i want make sure i leave a stamp on their hearts so that they know. Md was here on this. Or if i'm here today or tomorrow or long down the line. I want them to always remember that. Mj was here for love and she stood for love and she did it to what she loved which was her craft and that's how she changed the world. That's what i want my legacy to be. And i'm fighting for every single day every single day you touched on this earlier. You know year beginning another career venture as a recording artist. You dropped your first single something to say which you.

"M j rodriguez welcome to the times. Thank you you are an emmy nominee. And you've had some time now to process it. What is surprise you about being on this journey. You know what. I think most surprised me about being on this journey and being nominated as an. It's kinda crazy to hear myself say but an outstanding leading actress in a drama series. I think the most surprising thing was being received as an actress being taken seriously within my craft and actually being accepted in the awareness of myself as a afro latina trans woman it's kind of astounding to me because for so long i have my own insecurities but i was also subjected to a lot of discrimination obviously as a trans woman about even two years and even farther back so to see the change happen over time in quicker than i expected. I've just been so flabbergasted by and i'm really proud of myself but i'm also proud of the human race and them actually getting together and knowing that we as trans women are humans too and that we walked this earth just by how they do and that we love like how they do we have hearts how they do. We believe like any other human. Does they're starting to see it and understand it. And it's going to show by receiving a nomination like this. It feels good just to let our audience know you've made history as the first transgender performer to receive an emmy nomination for best actress in a drama series for your performance as blanca. How what do you want the trans community to take away from this moment. And what would you like the cis- community to take away from this moment. What i was specifically like the trans community to take away from this moment is that it's possible. It's even more possible now to really chase your dream as an artist. Whether you're a singer and actress a dancer now. The lane is completely opened. The doors bus down completely. And it's time for you to take your space. It's time to take the space like how you deserve because it's open and the only way that it's going to happen is if you actually take it and you go about it with dignity and grace and humility but you go in with confidence knowing what you want and what i can say to this community. Specifically you know the females community is that you know we're here to uplift each other. Though where different types of women we still identify in the same bracket which is woman whether we'd be trans horses and we're here for each other and now's the time to come together and share space together like how we should have been for a long time and you know. I don't think that's going to be hard for any of this. This woman out there because naturally women were nurturing were carrying. We make it happen so i have no doubt in my mind that women across the world translates the like will open up and become a little bit more collective and knowing that we're here to change the dynamic. I mean woman when the world we run the world assist men out there. I would say start opening up and being our allies and understanding that. There's no agenda for trans women to infiltrate your space to make you feel uncomfortable to the list can go on. This is not a time for your feelings in your masculinity your fragile masculinity and also some toxic masculinity to be forced upon us so that it can make us feel lesser than or be little less instead use your strength in your masculinity to actually uplift us and be comfortable in yourself so that it's not so toxic so i would say that to office people around the world but yeah where here and i don't think we're going anywhere anytime soon and i think a lot of people more than i thought are here for us. I wanna rewind a bit to your early years pursuing acting and i know rent was such a formative production for you. I mean you made your off broadway debut playing angel in the two thousand eleven revival. Talk to me about what rent meant to you in how you look back on that chapter of your life rent was the best love story soliloquy. I could have ever received when. I was eleven years old until i was fourteen and then until i was nineteen. That's show not only gave me a true understanding a full explanation of what it was like dealing with. Hiv and aids on top of being homeless. But it also showed me what a chosen family looks like when every single last one of them have been ostracized these will all people who were displaced. Because of the lives that they lived and not all of them were lgbtq. I it was a mixed group of misfits. That's what rent taught me in amid so much to me. Because of that. Because i was a misfit and i still a misfit. I'm sitting misfit. You know out claim that now and when you are part of that crowd of people who are different you not only get a glimpse of how the world is outside and how they see you but you start to see how you fit in the world sue. And if you're gonna choose to keep being misfit in defy gravity or you try to fit in for me. Rent taught me not to fit in instead to stand out. Be even louder and it doesn't have to even be with your words. It could be which presence it could be. What you walking down the street and holding your head up high no matter if you're getting derogatory slurs thrown at you from people on the street. Because i had that all my life. I had so.

"Now. What do you hope people take from this song. And are we going to eventually get to hear a full album. Yes okay so one. I hope people take away from their song that this has been my motto for ever. I hope that when they listen to it that they realize that everyone is more alike than we realize.

That katie played for them. They won two titles. He was the finals. Mvp in both championships and had amazing performances. Now they could've probably pulled off a three peat if if it wasn't for durant's that that obviously achilles pop it on him against the raptors final season. Now steve kerr also play. Played with michael jordan won two titles with mj with the bulls so his perspective on this obviously is something that is interesting because he played with jordan but coach durant and listen to what he said nbc bay area about kevin durant and his comparison to jordan is the most talented basketball player on earth If not of all time. Honestly he's just so gifted played with michael jordan. And and and i know i think he's more gifted i really do. I mean it saying something but kevin is a different entirely different breed.

"One thing i've talked about perhaps a lot but never really dove into my dad's clock collection which to me. I just imagined that your house like there's no wall space because there just clocks everywhere constantly driving. You're not not wrong. I mean whenever. I do go home how i stay in my childhood bedroom but has now become part like display case basically with bed in the corner. I have to like unplug. Multiple clocks like can't take all of the ticking. I also as i documented on this podcast before. I'm very sensitive to noises. I like being able to hear shit at night. I need complete silence. But also i won't wear earplugs because i'm afraid i'll die cool so you could see. It's really a struggle in my in my head. But i literally have to unplug a bunch of shit. I'll have post it notes and cover all the little like lights that are on everything it is that is. That is the work that i have to do when i'm at home but anyway yeah. My dad collects antique clocks. It's a point of contention among my parents. Because my mom doesn't like that he goes out and buys buys them and spend money on them to the point where then he would like hide them in his car trunk and under the bed. We go digging for something under the bed and like find a clock that he bought without telling anybody but no now. They're pretty much confined to like display shelves. The walls a lot of them are like clocks that you would put on like a shell for something. But they're not like we had that one we did have a cat one with the i is a classic ray. We had one where there was like two little kids kind of like swinging in the middle. Wow that's a classic line we did have a kuku clog that we only ran when i was when i was younger. I recall the cuckoo clock being a a noise of my childhood. But not i think eventually the rest of us scott fucking sick of it and he stopped. Whatever you have to you. Have to pull the poodle. Weber's do you think your family had like a really different relationship with time than most people certainly on a different relationship with just. Yeah the noises that we're put up with.

"All right horse things. I talk about the worst news of the week. This story was allround twitter this week. A listener highlighted it as well. A pet dog who vanished for two days after it was ejected from the rear window of vehicle during a car accident nightmare situation. I think about it every single time. Putty is in the backseat of a car. It was finally found two days later happily sheep on a nearby farm here route he here. I love this. I love this for this dog. I don't understand okay. yeah. I don't understand why there are not like dogs seatbelts. I guess there probably are. They're just not that great. I can't imagine any dog is going to want to stay in it. We have to drug our dog. Maybe i should save this for the deep dive. Drug our dog anytime. It had to go in the car. Any dog ever had lou- that's unnecessary matt. Me every time but whenever it was like long trips it was not like we didn't like trank. The dog was way benadryl. I think it's because all dogs and this is you can quote me on this. Because i am a veterinarian. All dogs do kind of absorb the medical issues of their owners. Yeah right corey of bad back. Your dog has a bad back. You know you have digestive issues. Your dog has digestive issues would always get carsick. And i think that is a product of being around us weak stomached individuals and so we would have to. We would have to sedate her or she would vomit all over the car every every mile. Which would then make all of you vomit all over the car and it was just this sick sick cycle anyway getting far away from this story so this pet dog. This is really a real case of turning lemons into lemonade here. This is a real star is born situation. Use never know when your dream job is going to present itself this family. They were driving along the highway. One one sunday morning in idaho and they crashed into another car and their dog tilly. Who is a border collie slash red healer mix. I don't know what to read. Healer is but i do know what a border collie as its name ms tilly and it was launched through the rear window airbud style. I'm just imagining fly. So fly tilley was unharmed but stunned apparently as would be if you fly on. Dogs barely even understand the concept of being in a car or like any sort of transportation. There's just no way that their little brains can compute like i what is happening pu-putting thrown from vehicle. I'm saying it's just that over and was like okay. That was fine saying it was shocking enough just being in a car. It's shocking to then ejected from it. Suddenly like they don't understand that they are going fifty five miles per hour. No and i remember. There was one thing that we had where the vet was like. This particular breed does not understand like distances or heights. So you have to be careful because they'll fully jump out of a window expecting to like land not realizing that there several feet above the ground. Anyway so tilly was unharmed but stunned ran away across the idaho prairie and then they had to launch into this lake. Several our search I guess the family was also fine secondary but there was like you know witnesses who came up checked on them and then they were like okay with help. You find your dog and for ten hours. They searched around to find the dog. They gave up then the family. They post on facebook of tilly and a couple of days later cut to this farm. They have a dog a couple of dogs. One of whose name is who we name terrible name for dog and then maybe maybe they really big. Who weekly fans literally this. This man tells his brother who he looks different today. His his red furlough ix darker than usual. And his brother's like yeah. Because that's a fucking this is a stranger was the real who we delete. Kill the real hawaii and a assume his personality. I mean that's the only explanation. They eventually recognize tilly as the dog from facebook and they called in. They reunited him but they said that yeah he had started apparently to Herd the sheep And so yeah it just. It just really goes to show. Sometimes you need to be launched through the rear window of your family car in order to really see what's important to you in life. It's beautiful next sheriff's officials in florida. Only in florida. Say someone was dropping off a package after hours at a post office in hernando county when they noticed a seven foot alligator roaming around the lobby. Okay buying stamped. He just needed some stamps. He had to send some stuff to his friends in louisiana. I remember that part of last year where everyone was like like the mailman is national hero. Everyone needs to get on their knees when the mailman comes over a the amount of mailmen last year that got absolutely laid their newfound status as both sex symbols and soldiers really You know defenders of democracy just off the charts and maybe that's what the alligator was therefore dress looking to pay his dues support in that. Usps someone was dropping off a package at about three thirty. A m on a recent wednesday which is already suspect as fuck. I don't understand why you dropping packets three thirty in the morning. The post office is only open from like twelve pm to two pm. So i don't know how any other hours would even make sense. Technically all hours are off hours. Post office yeah. This particular post office at least had these automatic doors that allow people to enter off hours but it also allows giant monsters to get into lobby. The florida fish and wildlife conservation commission considers an alligator a quote nuisance animal if it is four feet or longer oh good.

"One thing i wanted to ask you about is on this podcast. We often talk to such a different array of people but people want themselves represented in. The one thing that i think in the uk we fully get is the kind of african american also. Latino experiences like an intersection. And is that like in. its specificity. Well one out say this as person who is likely not and also african american and probably many other things but those are the main things. I know i'm due to just my parents. There's not a lot of representation so there's a lot of There's a lot of anger the way we can fix. That is obviously making sure that there's more representation and also for people to really look back in the history and see that we're all connected. I always that was my main goal. Was to make sure that people know that. Yeah you may be latin. Yeah you may be african or african american or asian or you know you may be them and again whether again but you still are one. We help from one place no matter what. And that's just fact it's proven it's not like something that's whimsical and came out of nowhere. It's fact it's also scientific and a lot of people don't want to believe in science which makes me go crazy but yes it's it's real. It's not something that's just drawn up. So people can digest and when i got hold of vet. That's when i was just like okay. We have to find a way to have people understand. That there's a trickle effect. Where human i. There's also been laws that were laid down to make us feel human and that's why we have to constantly fight for the lives of individuals who are considered marginalized. Because we don't do that then they were never going to get to a space of understanding that were actually human. People will constantly use the device at techniques of white and black. I've gotten i've gotten this whole thing about from radical young individuals who are saying. I hold strong semi whiteness.

Who is Miles Morales in Marvel's Spider-Man?

"Games that release this week. I've been playing is spiderman. miles morales. which is the sequel to two thousand seventeen spiderman by sony and insomnia and i have to say this is miles morales story and you'll know miles morales. If you're not coming read from the movie into the spite of us which is excellent right. It might be the best. I've got the best buy movie you know. Even though it's an animated movie just fun. I think really good portrayal of spiderman it's waikiki and there's all these different spiderman anyway. This is miles morelli story and it starts with pizza parker. It's spiderman he's just. He's training miles to be also spiderman. He's not been training for very long and pizza us to leave new york city for awhile with. Mj don't know what he's doing. Yes to leave. Andy leaves miles in charge of the city s spiderman. So it's it's got this new the story and the way the people in the city react to you is kind of funny because it's like. Oh you're that spiderman a we were expecting the spider-man's zone so the city hasn't really they don't really see you as spiderman so you the new kid and the shoes and like you can do your as good as pizza. You've got the same power if not more powers because miles different power but the people in the say and not really that into him so yes to kind of win the city over and then you know early on in the game the city you know. It's very typical marvel as a. Let's say or mark zuckerberg type reruns this big tech company. And he's doing something we try and take everybody over. Somehow the miles gets about moving safe the city so it's the same game. Play really is a two thousand seventeen one you. It's the same city you know because it wouldn't be spied him on if it wasn't new york city right and if spiderman was swinging around london just wouldn't seem right to me so it could mean another universe but it needs to be in the same city right. This is the same. this is just the same. The same city was different about the map. Though is it's christmas time so it snowing and there are christmas decorations all over the city. So it's really decked-out to like christmas which looks a lot different to the spiderman game twenty seventeen which was in midsummer like right in the middle of summer so it looks different on that level but the game plays exactly the same so if you liked the game play. Is that gameplay. You know you go in. The city's missions in it. Though further the story this collectibles you can collect to spiderman and suits to collect his lows different suits that he can wear. One of. The sues is one of the coolest things i've ever seen in a game. And i was just saying to use it You know the s by into despite of us cartoons remember they animation style it it was kind of choppy but it made it what it was like because it was cool looking suit when you put it on. It makes the game the animation style so the whole game is choppy looking book. Cool looking. Because it's i don't even know how they did. They've done it like it feels like the whole of the city is running at sixty frames per second but the animation of spiderman is running way less and it's also kind of jerky but it looks like it around great be able to. It looks like it came straight out without cartoon you'll like. Yeah i can see what they're doing. It's it's weird to look at but it is cool. Because i was like. Oh the soup from into despite of us let me put that on and see what that's like and then i'm like oh now. The game looks like that animation. That's crazy so that spider man. Miles morales is out on the ps. Four and the ps five.

So who's reliable voter anymore when when you have double or triple the turnout at the polls, a lot of the people showing up to vote which by the way the people who are getting. Engaged to go and vote who haven't been reliable voters tend to be not good news for whatever political party is in power right? So we expect to outperform the Coles the polling we're we're a lot closer than Beto was in the polling against Ted Cruz and yet he's still almost beat him. So I, have every confidence that. After the debate we only have one scheduled that Cornyn. has agreed to he has kind of chickened out on the other to even though he told the Texas Tribune that he would be. Willing to do more. I think that he knows that he can't run on his record I. think he knows that the more Texans learn about him the worse it is for him we pick up a lot more of those independent undecided voters because my vision for this state is a lot more in line with Texas values in. Want.

Interview With William Hill

"All right, so tell us who you are, and what you? So, my name is William Hill some people may know me as MJ mostly for people who've known me like for a long time. But most senior software engineer currently at new relic now before we get more into what you do, and your background and everything. This is a question that I've been asking. You know guests I guess for the past few months now for the show, but like we're recording this now in the middle of a global health pandemic. So how are you holding up with all? All this going on I'm doing about as well as to be expected. It hit at a really I mean it's never an opportune time for global pandemic right, but it had a pretty it offered to tie for me because I already accepted the job in new relic, so was like basically transitioning between two jobs, and I had planned to have six weeks off. You know starting at new relic, so I was GONNA. Have all these plans I was going to travel? I had like two conferences. I was GONNA speak. It already had tickets a couple of NBA Games. I was GONNA like go through all this stuff. And you know obviously none of that happened so but just kind of sitting back relaxing. You know since I was fun employees for several weeks at the beginning of the pandemic, so it just kind of caused me to slow down for a little bit and. Capone from video gaming. What is it like kind of being unemployed because I know that like folks are in various states of working or not working unfortunately. During this time, but what's it like in that transition stage with all this is happening right now. It was a little nerve wracking on going into it, because like I said at already accepted the job before the pandemic really started to the curve released to ramp up. So like I said I had all these plans with my employment that I was looking forward to doing it was going to be because it's so rare as an adult to of get time off. Tear voluntarily getting time off knowing that. Hey, I already got something else lined up, so let me take some time off. Just kind of breast recharged and have some fun. So going into it. It was like Oh. This is going to be great, but then it quickly turned into like a nerve wracking experience, because I'll say I'm leaving a very very stable job and you know, keep an eye on the news keeping an eye on the at blind and stuff like that where I'm seeing all these technically also just layoffs in general crap. They you know I'm going to a new job. I don't WanNa. Be like you know the last hired and first fire so. I kept having conversations with my. Who's going to be my new manager and I was like Yo. Like is our house. You're looking. Because I've lived this other job which was pretty stable. I was already set up. You know to work from home with them, but I didn't want to take that leap in these strange times, and then get the accidentally in. There'd be left without a job. Yeah, I mean that's a hundred percent fair. A very fair invalid feeling I mean granted with the way that they've just sort of check out with the pandemic you have industries like the service industry you know restaurants bars, but also hotels and things of that nature like in the hospitality industry that are suffering from this, but tech is also having big cuts. Was Reading the other day about Uber lift having pretty big cuts. I know Airbnb just laid off like a large, I think most of their design team like It's affecting a lot of industries in different ways, and so that's a a really kinda valid point. Did they SORTA? Reassure you that like you were fine like we hire you. You're good. Don't worry about it. They! Did they kind of you? Know says they are already a public company. They kind of share with me. Manager kind of share with me. The financials the with me that he could. And even just the nature of their business motto. Me To believe I would be okay. Yeah, because their whole thing is application performance monitoring, so you kind of think of a large large ECOMMERCE, large streaming site, or something like that they will use new relic service to monitor the health of their application, the health of their servers. You know high performance is and stuff, so everyone being stuck inside that leads the people you know doing virtually everything online now whether it's streaming whether it's shopping or whatever. Their business model actually Kinda Linda itself to more people being online and dealing with larger amounts of web traffic. Once I kind of thought about it from that perspective. I'll say. This actually if I was going to go to a company, that's probably the business model of company. I will want to go to during these times where there's GonNa. Be a heavily increased traffic on the web yeah. Also I mean it's good on them for being open and transparent with you about financials. A lot of companies do not do that. At all, so that's good that they are being upfront about that with you. Yeah, because I was nervous, man like I can imagine that's that's a scary feeling. Yeah, because I had everything pretty stable in my at my previous job. You know I was leading a team there. Yeah, you know that will head a government job yeah man. Like. I was I was I stayed if ever wanted to. Retirement about. But yeah. I was like I wanted I was looking forward to making the leap and I'd already kind of accepted a job before everything happened, but man. The world changed in a blink. Yeah.

Let's do this let me see here whereas Covenant Cleanup provided by. I'm not rooting for the Lakers. My point is is a mildly sympathetic to Lebron in a world that constantly tries to compare them to people from situations that are completely incompatible as he chases legacy and gets smacked in the face as we all have been personally and professionally with a global pandemic.

The right now. We have to get to the listener mail and I know. Rebecca has a very special one disease. Finish up the series of finishing they. Mj series the third word steamed right with our Last ants Stuff going on on. Espn No this one is a little long but I wanted to just finish it out. So just as a reminder. This is a family that has now moved into a second house and the entity has now moved across the street into the House with them again. The little boy like let the thing in so let's continue absolutely in March of two thousand nineteen. We had decided that we would add a puppy into the mix. I don't know if this is what caused to what happened. What happens next to happen but it seems like things started to get worse a few weeks after we had gotten our dog we had seen the entity more often and it wasn't shying away anymore it would start flickering the lights and slamming cabinet doors. There were constant cold spots. My son started to think there was a monster in the bathroom and the kitchen. All places where weird things started escalate in May of two thousand nineteen so not that long ago? We woke up to our dog crying wanting to go side. He's using the bathroom. My husband took her out and she refused to come back in. My husband dragged her back into the house to the smell of sulfur or eggs. He woke me up to verify that I had also smokes something off. We searched the house that it was stronger from the back of the House. Where the kid's bedrooms were. We got the kids and took them outside. We called our landlord and said that and they said there could be a gas leak. They sent someone over to check and it was a gas leak after that gas leak. We decided to investigate other places to live. I liked that this family follows the rules. Get Out Right. At least they're trying. We packed her belongings. And they're the entity was again looking at are things at this point. I was done. I I yelled. Is this what you wanted? We're leaving and do not follow us. Something seem seeming to hear me Russia. The dining room to the back door. Slamming the door. She's a she's a tough lady. Talent is entity. Yeah all right. We had moved into a rent to own on Thursday June. We had originally seen this house's something we could make our own a way to get away from all the things that we've been dealing with it. The previous you places had everything moved in by Saturday. Still were working on a packing that first Sunday of living in this new residence. I was moving things around. And the kids were in their My husband was outside with our dog when I saw the dark. Figure a get so like moved to tone totally new house there. It is again the Third House Third House. It was standing just by my side of the bed. Just watching me. After about five minutes of just standing there started to move towards me. I grabbed the kids outside on the first Monday of living in this new residents. I was laying down on the couch in the living room with my daughter underneath the AC unit. Because it was in June Kansas so a little warm in the house. My son was playing on the floor in the same room as us by husband was setting up the house. Our dog started whining to go outside. Seeing I was with the kids my husband. Said said he would take the dog outside to do your business when she was done. She refused to go back inside the house again. She kept arguing toward the House and tried to drag my husband away from the door trying to drag him down the driveway. He ended up putting her on a chain right outside the front door and came back inside. He opened the door. The smell of sulfur hit. He asked me if I had smelled it since we were sitting low to the ground in constant movement of air from the AC unit. We hadn't initially smelled it this time. The smell was overwhelming and not at all like just a few weeks previously that we so we determined to the gas company to be called instead of waiting around on the landlord to get back to August and the gas company told us we needed to get out of the House immediately and get as far away as possible. We all sat outside in the car Sitting in the street is far away from the house but still close enough for the gas company to ask questions if they needed it after. The gas company came in surveyed the leak. They determined that if we were to go to sleep in that house. We may not have woken up for sure. If we laid our daughter down she would not have because the gas leak was coming from her room.

Would Michael Jordan Rule in Today's NBA?

Would Michael Jordan Rule in Today's NBA?

"Kirk. So I I swear. I promise we're not here to debate. Mj versus Lebron. At least not until the end of the interview believe me I have my stance. It is locked and loaded. We'll get to that. I don't want to alienate half the audience before we begin so over the last few weeks. Those of us who have watched the last dance have borne witness to the greatness. That is Michael. Jordan and that greatness does inform the Lebron debate insofar as it has reminded us of how dominant Jordan was but of course he was playing a different era. Basketball was very different from how it is today which can make it hard to compare those two players or to evaluate how Jordan would fare in today's NBA. So let's start here and established that point of comparison. What was the league like Jordan came into it? Well Jordan came into the in nineteen eighty four and it was a very very different place. The best players in the League at that time or Magic Johnson. Magic Johnson Larry Bird bird again. Larry saying the crowd here. This is what came to see. Kareem abdul-jabbar was still really good Long story short meaning the the NBA was run by big men just as it had been since its entire district and eight of the ten highest play players by the time Jordan even retired centers Jordan was drafted in Nineteen eighty-four just to give you an idea dominant. How valuable centers were sixteen of the twenty previous? Mvp Award winners heading into the one thousand nine hundred four eighty five season worst centers so Jordan entered an MBA. That's fair to characterize as a centers -ly And obviously it's very very different than what we're describing here in twenty twenty. So how big of a deal was it? That the best player in the League Michael Jordan was a shooting dude. You can't overstate. How big of a deal. It was really weird. I mean magic had showed us that point guards could be great. Bird showed us the power forwards and shooting. Forwards could be great no. Mvp had ever come from the shooting. Guard position nobody had really ever dominated the leak or won championships from that position or in that way and again one of the main things the makes Michael Jordan's such a special character in NBA. History is that he deformed the various static of MBA greatness. disrupted to use the term from from Silicon Valley. What it meant and what it looked like to be. Nba superstar love deformed as a verb because it sort of implies that he bent the League to his own. Will he did that man? I mean he came in there and it was violent and it was beautiful and it was for the betterment of the future of the sport a couple of weeks ago. You're at a piece about why. Michael Jordan was such a transcendent score. Can you explain what it was that? Made that dominant so unusual. Yeah well it starts with the fact that he's a he's a guard and again to contextualize it against what was going on in the eighties. Nineties is is shooting guards in wings didn't dominate the NBA. We had the occasional superstar like Julius Irving. So I'm not GonNa say that he was the first star wing but he was a jump shooter. Long Story Short. He was a jump shooting guard. Who could attack the Rim and boy could he attack the rim? So the early part of Jordan's careers. Obviously marked by these highlight jump. Man Silhouettes the dump contest leap from the free throw line and Chicago. Stadium can picture that in our head along Dominique to Michael Jordan but by the end Meena Jordan would beat teams with just incredible mid range shooting And if a majority of buckets in the last dance season in that second repeat came off of the mid range jump shots that either came from post plays Dribble pull-ups quick stops just an endless array of mid range jumpers. Mj On the way away. Jumper and one scout told me a really stuck out is like I've been watching the last dance for eight hours now. I haven't seen the same move twice. It's not like he had to go to move over and over again. All those phase pretty close but man he he did it all but he did it in this area that we don't use very much anymore. Aka Amid Ridge and he's also very difficult shots right thinking about it this way. If you're going up against the Bulls in his nineteen ninety two or nineteen ninety-seven and year in opposing coach. Year number one objective is pretty clear If you can stop or slowdown Michael Jordan. You have a chance. If can't you don't So almost every night the Jordan played he would get the other teams best defender. And that person would WANNA play their best game of the year because everybody in their Rena was watching it and so he did. This eighty two games a year to put up the best sort of scoring numbers in the League against the best defensive performers in the league so you made a heat map for Jordan and then in the same story you made one for harden and you put them next to each other and trying to comparison it almost looks like urban and rural America right or like to to heat maps. That are just wildly different. Almost like people playing different sports one hundred percent in hardened deserves all the credit in the world for becoming the best score of this era but this era is dominated by sort of this moneyball dogma efficiency efficiency efficiency and when you look at James Harden shot signature. You see a guy who shoots near the hoop. He's great Basket attacking guard like Jordan But then away from the painting of the student only shoots threes. He avoids the Mid Range just like he avoids a shaving cream. And and then when you look at say Jordan you see almost the exact opposite remember that old image of Pan Jia and how the continent sort of fit together these two shots hearts kind of look like South America and Africa. Where Jordan is one shape all mid range and then a hardest jump shot activity is sort of surrounding that all three point airs. Jordan didn't shoot a lot of threes.

"Rewatch ables. We're doing the entire ninety seven. Nba Finals concentrate in the last two games. But this is such a fascinating document in so many different ways. This is. Jordan has become unassailable. Great at this point he's a superhero. Were all assuming he's going to be He's GonNa come through every step of the way. No matter what obstacle Utah Team. That had been around for a long time. We didn't really have a feel for them. Not Enjoyable to watch. We're about to cover bulls go sixty nine and thirteen. This is the culmination of just a brutal twenty months that we talked about on your podcast. And we did the wizards pod were they had hit this. This point of their basically the Beatles at this point this travelling circus. They're covered differently than any sports team ever. All that stuff jazz go sixty four. Eighteen eleven three in the playoffs. They beat the Lakers. The clippers and famously the rockets stockton hits the three The Lakers series. That was the Kobe ball series kind of lost in the shuffle where Shack first-year Eddie Jones Nick Van Exel. Pretty even series. I I remember in the moment thinking. Oh the Lakers beat Utah. You always loses. Utah's done and wasn't the case. It was MVP. Carl Malone still being an MVP so any we get to the finals and the subplot emerges the real MVP versus the guy who won the MVP but then this whole other thing about no Karl Malone was actually offered this year twenty seven and ten incredible defensive player such a good passer the double team. The whole offense is built around him. You know he's a deserving. Mvp where did you stay in in nineteen ninety seven on this question heading into the finals? Do you remember your do. This was none of us like watching. Utah back then okay. No-one did and even though there was never series of ours necessarily rooting for Jordan. I was I wasn't rooting for the Utah Jazz it just it was the NBA finals. It was on an there wasn't anyone. I was emotionally connected to about the entire time now because I was a huge Barkley guy and I know I'm biased. I've always thought Barkley was better than Malone and I think these this series is does not this. This is a bad series or Karl Malone fans by the way it's awful You had the number one guy in the history of the League setting you up on every single possession your entire career and malone was a really good shooter for big. He was incredible as a rebounder. He's pretty good as a passer as a closer on the wing was putting the knee up like pretty. Yeah Yeah and dude. He played every game. He played every game and he was actually a real tough guy. Like when he and Robin getting into it. There's part of me like want him to fight. Rodman for real because he would've twisted Rodman up. I mean he just he just would've but whenever I see some of those dollar memes about five four three build your Dream Team. Carl Malone's always unlike the four dollar line when he's on it and Barclays always on the three dollar line and when I think of peak bark versus people alone I know who I'm taking I'm taking Barclay. I wouldn't even argue it. But the the composite the full stat picture of WHO Carl Malone is is incredible so the fact that they're in this finals they have this incredible record. They're awesome at home. They have this amazing homecourt atmosphere. That's like ruthless. Which is part of the Rodman story when he says something about Mormons and gets fined. And then there's a weird Jim Gray interview where he starts crying before game six it. He was out to lunch. The sears right. He's he's so bad in the closing game I respected what Stockton and Malone did but it might have been the first time I was realizing something that you and I have just started talking about more and more the separation between playoff basketball regular season basketball. That if you'RE GONNA run this pick and roll with these two hall of famers you're GonNa win a bunch of games but when I look at Utah in the series there's like three or four guys who Utah they wouldn't even play in today's NBA. They're playing minutes in the NBA finals. So you have the two thousand seventeen finals. Golden State averages one twenty one point six a game ninety one shots a game in the finals games. The cavs were one fourteen point. Eight nine point two goes again this ninety seven finals and it gets worse. The next year the Bulls for the series eighty seven. Point eight points. Jazz were eighty seven. Point two seventy four point eight field goals for the bowl. Seventy one point two for the jess say that the differences. What how many shots? The difference is basically thirty five shots again towed out a lot of that too. You could talk about. It's not even defense. It's not in both teams. Were slow paced teams. Chicago'S SLOW PACED team. Because they're running their stuff but when you're running these side pick and rolls or malone a pin down where somebody comes up only to try to get it back to him in the post that takes time and that's what they did

Kobe on 'The Last Dance' brings out all the emotions

"Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant play game in MJ's last all star game Kobe's first all star game is a nineteen year old the locker room talk was interesting all the background on the agent getting a deal with Nike and the air Jordans the Mars Blackmon Spike Lee commercial that was awesome the whole beginning of be like Mike the Tony crew coach games at the Barcelona Olympics in nineteen ninety two the flash back to Clyde Drexler and the Blazers in the ninety two finals all of that I do you want to talk about at some point because I think there's some really interesting stuff in there also no matter what else errors from this point forward episode five will always be my favorite episode of its documentary and I will explain why it moving forward well what I thought was really poignant about episodes five and six and it really started at the end of episode five but episode six shone a spotlight on the heavy price and the responsibility that come with the type of fame that Michael Jordan had has but really at the height of his basketball career he was as recognizable as any figure on this planet he and the president of the United States and maybe in some cases more recognizable depending upon the age group and yet you can see in nineteen ninety eight through this season that was actually documented with the camera crew the heavy weight of fame the obligations the responsibilities the phrase was be like Mike and yes despite him flashing the pearly whites and the Gatorade commercial and ends the implication that everyone wanted to be like Mike because his life was unlike any other behind closed doors what was he talking about getting away having the followers of his hotel room not having to deal with the obligations of the responsibilities not having to deal with prying eyes and nonstop questions end what else comes with fame edit it doesn't have to be his level of fame it comes with having a public platform anyone and everyone tells you how to live your life I'm not famous not even close but the public figure that I am does yet now Michael Jordan have social media during his time but everyone wanted to tell him how to live his life I experienced that in the beginning when I first started with social media that was the most annoying part everyone giving me advice and telling me what I should do and what I should do when social media is only a snapshot of who I am and most of its because of work people assume they know you because they hear from you or because they see what you put out there on social media but as Michael Jordan said repeatedly over the course of these two episodes on Sunday night nobody knows Michael Jordan you don't spend five minutes with the guy or any guy or gal and know that person you don't know that person because you see him play basketball you don't know that person because you'll spend a few hours with them and what do you say in in in a really I think really powerful moment in which he was tired he was exhausted mentally was worn out physically he said people say they want to be like Mike for a day for a week that's not being like Michael Jordan if you really knew what it was like to be like Michael Jordan you wouldn't want to you wouldn't want this I mean that's coming from the guy who seemingly had it all but yet couldn't get away from the prying eyes and the nonstop questions and everyone weighing in about his life and telling him what to

Penn State Cinderella Story Continues, Pat Chambers discusses his team

"All right. We'd like to welcome in Penn State head coach Pat Chambers One. Eight of his last nine coach chambers. Welcome to the world's greatest podcast with Greenberg dockage. Dan Open things up because he is the big ten Guru Guru. I like it. Hey coach last night what happened. We didn't make implicity the voting go in the basket. That's a big leads with that. That's the truth the balls gotta go in the basket for you to win the game. I mean it was a rock fight. Both teams played extremely hard It gives you all know Brad credit for what they did defensively on Stevens and our shooters and then I was fantastic me. He was hurt for about four or five days there and he comes back and he looked healthy and strong and extra little kicking his step for sure he looked fresh. I think that's why he's able to make any place down the stretch for them. Forget about that that game. You won't eight in a row. You want eight zero at Penn State. You've got sixty wins in two and a half years already. Which is absolutely incredible. Most wins in the three year period. I think if I'm not mistaken in the history of Penn state and he's got a lot of season left. How did this group happened? I guess is the best question each. That's why he loved dockage right. He just wants to talk about the negative sake us right. Oh recent Yay balancing. I was conscious classic. Look I just think Lamar Stephen Staying? The course and Mike Walk and staying the course. The older yet veterans Guys that are loyal. Loyalty is is very. As you guys know loyalties everything these guys committed state committed to not only but the staff at each other the players in that locker room and the program so at Penn State. You GotTa get older and you gotta stay old now. We gotta stay old and Dan you were you. Were there at the pleasure when these guys were freshmen. We've played each state. You knew we building something special. We just have to stay the course. We have to be patient and fortunately city Barbara was patient And that's why you're able to to go through some growing pains and learn and get some shared experiences. And that's why you're able to you know as SEF just said sixteen sixty wins in the last three years. It's a great accomplishment for these kids. Twenty and six Penn State two games out of first place with Maryland. I think I don't think Maryland has an easy schedule. I think this could still get very sexy coach. Talk about Lamar Stevens. His his sidekicks other than Watkins are gone from that game but man is he been good. We'll real steady Really Mature Really grown up In his approach and everything he's doing from from cold cubs yoga to getting it. Sure shot's taking care of his body take and then his leadership ability and autos and in the locker room that practice is a kid. Who's you know? We only got a few weeks left of the season regular season and he still bought into the culture of doing all the little things that we need. Do to keep getting better. And that's been his message. You know he guys what we can get a lot better. We gotTA clean this. We gotTA CLEAN THIS UP CLEVELAND. So if we can do that now you really. GonNa put put ourselves better position. I mean we're a great position now but he wants more. He's hungry for more. I mean he's gotta be up there for for player of the year in this league. I mean there's I know guards it and I know thirty. Counting cash is another straight players. But Lamar Steve has got to be in the conversation. Now you played last night. You've played it for a while now without your second leading scorer Myron Jones. What what does he bring? What's the timetable to bring them back? See Dan I'm learning this thing here. I'm trying to create some news out of this question and that was the kind of newsy question. Dan's radio show now. This is something different dad. We J. for sure. Obviously we're evaluating. We want him to be as healthy as possible before we bring them back on the floor. I think we would be doing him a disservice if we brought him back any earlier. So let's make sure he's as healthy as possible so we can really contribute any safe. You know that's important kids. Safety Ethic is what Penn State's all about But to lose your second leading score and go three and one is about the depth and you guys know this you know. We've never had that type of depth in my tenure. We're talking about Mike Tenure I was never able to go seven eight nine deep and this year. We were able to do that for the most part now. Mj's down guys have been stepped. Brockton has been stepping up tomorrow. Wheelers stepping up Curtis Jones has been stepping up as long as we get contributions from everybody we. We can continue to compete. Continue to get better. Hey you mentioned your Athletic Director Sandy. The importance of for one somebody sticking with someone Santa. Barbara's been amazing Look I Texas Texas Tech. Today we need to do a case study other directors need to watch not jump the gun and go find out what might win the press conference or make the public happy I think it's she's been inside the walls here. She's been inside the program she sees what we're doing a culture wise inside a lock room. She comes to practices. She sees developing our players. And how we're getting better and You know I think it's all pay off both of us. How about the environment? I you know you go to Penn State. It's got this great name obvious identity but I was so. They had some issues with the football situation but the environment. What makes Penn state like when you when you take that job? It's a big job and all those other things it's more money and and that's great now that you're there now that you're having success. What makes it the right place for you? Because let's face it as coaches? You're only as good as last season you can you? Can you know people have short term memories I? It's not an easy job. So what makes it where you say you know what not only can I win but I can sustain it? I mean what's the key to sustaining? Besides just getting players. Yeah. I think it's buying. I think you both would agree with that right. Top top down by into what we're trying to do complete and total investment into making. Sure that look we.

"If you'd prefer to chat your welcome to be on my podcast and then I told there's some days that I had available. I actually screen shotted this and put it on instagram. So make sure you look. I've got receipts if you squirrel through. You'll see that. I was immediately blocked after that message. Which tells me that? I'm right that she has done. Some modifications to her physical body lied about it and is avoiding talking about it. Because y else. Wouldn't she respond? I then posted some more pictures of some before and after 's including a message. I think this was a tweet. Maybe it was on instagram. I don't know I found it on Youtube and took a screen shot of it. Jasmine told She wrote to at Sierra Gold. I have never done any plastic surgery or put anything bad or unnatural in my body. I would never do that to me. Nothing against plastic surgery but it is not for me. What I think is funny about. This is that I never tagged. Well let me rephrase that. I never added Jasmine. So I never did the jasmine whatever. Her last name is I did put a Hashtag Hashtag. Jasmine Hashtag Blake and Jasmine Hashtag. Ninety Day fiance whatever but I did not put this message out to be read by her. This check was searching hashtags an came across it. It was never something that I sent to her and I just kind of found that funny. I would say of the comments from these two posts. I would say at least ninety percent of them. Were agreeing with me in the sense that it's obvious that this chick is had worked on. She shouldn't be lying about it. My big point is that I think blatant lies like Jasmine is telling us can be. It's likely going to be detrimental for girls in young women self esteem and that makes me think about bigger issues. Lifelong issues like body dismore FIA and that can lead to some really really bad things and bad choices to be made so I'm going to go ahead and leave that there and Jasmine. If you're out there and you would like to change your mind. I would still love to have you even though you blocked my ass. Moving Tuesday's news. I'm legal issue. I wrote about and I got kind of some mixed reviews on this one southern Charm Star. Catherine Dennis had a lawsuit against a former friend named Laura Dawson so Laura Dawson had called the police saying Catherine who was a friend then was seen going in and out of her house and that she must have broken in and was taking things from her property. Long story short cops investigated they found that there was no breaking and entering and Catherine had an alibi so at this point Catherine was upset for good reason because somebody filed. This woman had filed a false police report on her. Just a little history. If you don't remember Laura Dawson used to be roommates with Ashley Jacobs so Catherine Her Baby. Daddy is disgusting human. That is Thomas Ravin. All Thomas Ravin all ended up dating Ashley Jacobs who is pretty bad. Too and Ashley's roommate. Was this check Laura Dawson who falsely accused Catherine of breaking in this whole southern charm. In fact it's all most with maybe. I'm just super sensitive to this other. N- Franchises on Bravo of any show. I struggle with Dallas. I struggle with southern charm. Maybe because I'm from the south and it's also triggering but how these people cannot seem to stay out of each other's life and how like the pond is far as who can date to seems to be so shallow little triggering for man. I really can't say that I enjoy it all that much on Wednesday. I just had so much fun writing because it was to really really good fun uplifting stories the first one. I wrote a story about what to expect from repulse drag race here in Las Vegas the live show. I'm going on the twenty second of February so just a couple more weeks for me to see the show for myself but I did just a little bit of research and saw what there was to expect. So there is sadly no Rupaul in the show which I guess can't be too much of a surprise because the show run several times a week over the course of like eight months and I know. That's a huge commitment to anybody doing the show. I'm pretty confident that they're going to be switching to queens out periodically but as of now the show is hosted by Asia O'Hara and the Queen's appearing in the show are oddly Naomi smalls Derek. Berry Vanessa Miss Banji Matteo and Cameron Michaels. The format of the live show is that it plays very similar to rupaul drag race. In the fact that the Queen's do a mini challenge Maxi Challenge. And of course they lip sync for their life to avoid elimination and apparently the audience participation aspect is that the winner of the show that everybody attends is determined by audience applause. So that's a fun interactive aspect. Oh and there's some new music. The closing song is called. Losing is the new winning. That's exciting there are three more original songs but a highlight for many of us is there is a six man pit crew. And I'm very excited about that as I'm sure all of you are. These guys are giving us more than just face and body Yati Yati. They are dancers in the show. And I am going to guess I'm going out on a limb here is Vegas girl but I'm GonNa say that while the Queen's are doing costume changes we're going to be able to enjoy the many talents of the pit crew as they entertain us while our girls are doing their damn thing. Okay also on Wednesday. I'm so happy about this because I love vendor pump rules star Sheena Marie Shea. She is the UNSUNG hero of vendor. Pumper rules and May. I remind everybody that there would be no vendor pump rules. If it wasn't for Sheena Murray Shea never forget that she was sleeping with Eddie Siburian. Who was married to the Beverly Hills housewife of the time brandy glanville because Lisa? Vander pump is the queen of Being Massey. An here for it brandy had gone in to either pumper Sir. Forget where she was working at the time and was like? Oh you're sleeping with my husband and because of that amazing scandal. We got a spin off. Show Vander pump rules. So she know we thank you. She has gotten terrible at it over the years and I've met Sheena several times in person. And she is the nicest coolest woman Cher. She's thirsty. I got. She might not be a perfect person but who of us are? She is kind and sweet and very charming. Speaking of charming Sheena says she found her prince charming in this Super Hot Honk Brock Davies. I'm not sure if he has the ability to hang. Tv in seven minutes or she considers him her quote best friend but they are getting it and they are so beautiful together this man Brock Davies. Is I guess. A former rugby player then was on the in on in the NFL. I guess in the NFL. That's the National Football League for people like me. Don't know much about sports and now he owns a gym in as a personal trainer. The body on this man is out of control. He's one of those like I'm GonNa say it. He's got that Lake. Jason Momoa like giant strong beefcake look to him and then the bid and the long hair. He's very hot. I mean he's on Jason Momoa hot but this guy is banging and all I can say is Sheena. It's all happening and I'm happy for her. I am all here for her news. She has referred to brock. Is Her prince charming? And I'm not sure if she's got an Apple Watch for this guy but based on his physical appear. Let's talk about Max for a second. She bought Max Apple Watch in. The guy is a little weasel of a man if that's what she did for that weasel. I think that this guy means together like Lamborghini or something because he is worth it. I mean I wouldn't let that one get aware of Irish you know. Let's stay on the topic of Andrew pump rules on the next day on Thursday starchy Schroeder had opened up to Andy Cohen about her pre-nup and her new home with her fiance. Bo Clark you guys as a woman I love this I love a woman going ahead and being the boss and I love Bo. I think he's an amazing man and I think it's Manley is fuck that a guy can let his woman be so powerful and so strongly in the relationship so shout out to bow and saucy. I just love Them Stasi. Who looked amazing on? Watch what happens live. She told Andy after being asked about a pre-nup while playing dealbreakers that yes she had a pre nap and they even talked about her new home. It was discovered that. Stasi bought that house on her own. That house is in Stasi's name so bowl of course we'll be living there and helping pay all the bills. I don't know exactly what the situation is with that. But that is star sees house in Hollywood it's gorgeous and girl duets. Bow and mentioned that he didn't have a big chunk of money because he's not a New York Times bestselling author so he wasn't able to put a big chunk of money in on the house but he will be making payments and. I'm sure doing you know it's their business. However they decide to live their life and have arrangements. As far as financials. And WHO's you know? Maybe takes care of the house. Who's going out and making you know majority of the money however that works out as long as it's consensual between the two of them as long as they're both fine with the situation I'm not here to judge and I'm just happy that they're happy I mean Stasi bow or all the couple goals and I just cannot wait to see more of them and finally see this wedding in Rome. I think it's so funny. That Bo and Stacey are getting married in Rome Italy and when we heard of Jackson Brittany's marriage at first we. Oh my God for cy. Way To go littleton. We know that France Verse Sales Kentucky so Wont Wont on Brittany Jacks but a big congratulations. Well I shouldn't even say that because I guess the Kentucky Mansion in verse sales as they say Lisa Vendor Pumpkin I cannot get over the fact that they are sales in Kentucky but it was a beautiful beautiful place. Since Britney's Are Kentucky Muffin. It only makes sense. I Darcy are Caluzzi. Arom wedding is very very appropriate. Thursday with some drama drama drama drama. I gave an update on the Shah's of sunset stars friendship as far as Raza Farhan and Mercedes. Mj Javaid. This is really sad. I'm not sure if you guys followed this story while it was happening but we're about to see this play out on the show that premiers on Sunday. So just around the corner for this resin. Mj who have been friends for decades like these to love each other in such an intense beautiful way. Their friendship is torn apart right now so long story short. There were a series of text messages that were leaked by Raza and it was explaining a situation. Mj called him out for not being around after her pregnancy and Ras League Yes I was. He went ahead and posted all kinds of messages between heaven and Mj to show that she's making this shut up unfortunately and he's the Guy. I don't expect him to think this way but as a woman. I totally understand where. Mj is coming from. He posted a lot of private medical details as far as her pregnancy. She had a lot of problems during delivery. Thank goodness she's okay. Thank goodness her. Little Baby Shams is fine but it was a really really difficult time. And that's her privacy. That's her body. Nobody should know about that unless it comes from her. The messages that Raza published that he posted on social media. Gave those private details so I don't blame her for being angry but I also don't think Raza did that out of spite. I think he was just trying to prove that. Hey you know I she's making this up. Don't think it went down like that. So I'm really not on either side per se at this point. What got really ugly is. Tommy. Mj's husband had gone to Raza and his husband Adams House. It was caught on surveillance cameras when and started destroying their property. Throwing things around it was really really bad..

I was on my college equestrian team for half a semester. So how old were you when you started competing. I think I was ten years old. When I started competing I really feel like the foundation of being around? Horses has helped me so much in my life. which is the hard work and being ready to get dirty and really put in the effort and learning about something new and the travel at winner on with competing? It's so cool at a young age that you were a pretty accomplished competitive horseback rider and then went on to have this career. Both things are very individual sports which interesting. Obviously there's a horse may have to have a connection. But how do you feel like that. Set you up to do what you went on to do. I mean I feel like it really helped because I was constantly meeting New People while traveling I was constantly out of my comfort zone in new cities. He's and competing. And then I did the same thing in modelling and I think individual sports which I've really learned from my husband is a whole different mindset. Where were you know I really had to get used to the whole team thing can be? Would you like to tell our listeners. Who Your husband is Justin Bieber Lambert? I feel like it's just a completely different mindset that I was able to fall right into and an individual sports jobs you have to represent yourself you are. You're you're only advocate and I was very used to doing that whether it was with horse trainers or judges or anybody in the industry so my modeling agencies definitely were a little shocked that a fifteen year old had as many opinions. I did especially where my career going before you were even able able to give those opinions to the agencies. You had to convince your parents that you're fifteen. You're getting literally walk to your classroom every day by your mom or your like totally really trust me to go across the world completely fine. How did you convince them to the greatest fun fact? I presented them with a five year. Plan I was like I am going to make a career out of this or go to college so I decided if I started at fifteen eighteen I was young for my grade and I could still be in my same age group going into call it a workout. Yep We're GONNA take a break from competing eating horses because it was very stressful a lot on the economy and everything and then that's when I was like great like I'll just go make my own money. Then ah I convince them and they came on a lot of jobs. My mom him down to Miami. I started in Miami with me a lot and she refused to go into my job though which was actually really great. Those probably the right. Yeah like she knew out but she was really wanted me to learn how to represent myself. If your mom's in a room you're going to depend on her we would have prep interviews or prep castings exactly how supposed to act or what I was supposed to say a walk with me so I could handle it myself and make it a career. I did she tell you to say I mean I was fifteen so from everything like how to be professional national how to respond like got into trouble like so. You're at an age where most people are in high school all but also starting to like go out and be social and you are living in an apartment with other models and your mom is there. Sometimes WHOA I was that age like for you because here you are doing something that is GonNa be the backbone into your career and you sound very driven and at the same time you are our young and beautiful and making money and living with a bunch of other girls away from your parents. What was your life like? I worked every single day and ultimately our still proving to my parents that I wasn't moving to Miami just to party so I was paying my own bills and working constantly and I always say models roles who get the reputation of partying doing drugs or either the ones not working or so rich. They're only working a few days year because otherwise you're so exhausted working working twelve sixteen hour days every single day. I remember asking to get days off when I got my period of like. I'm so tired. Tired conversations go agencies like just let us know if you need a day off. I'm like actually I need a week. I'm really curious because it is obvious. How driven you are in Daniel? Just said like clearly from your question career and into into modeling what obviously modeling is infamous for how harsh the criticism is internally. And you know this kind of striving for perfection and these ideals of perfection and we'll talk about the public criticism that you received which is ridiculous. I'm just curious what it was like for you emotionally every day at work to be told turn this way. Look this way. Don't smile like that like what did that do to you. It puts you in a different mindset mindset because suddenly you almost have to remove yourself from your body and just blackout and do what they say and it also leads. I think angrily young models to do that in their everyday life and just do what is being told of them because you can't really especially being a young model have have an opinion on set. It's it's definitely kind of a crazy mindset that puts you in a very very vulnerable place so when the outside critics came in it was so hard on me because mentally. I wasn't strong to handle when you think about you today as now a businesswoman. How do you translate those experiences at that? Young Age. Chew the businesswoman. You are today. Did it feel you did help you. compartmentalize where do you think it laid the foundation for you today. Yeah definitely only fueled me. It made me learn that I really need to speak my mind and that my opinion does matter because of all those experiences and you know there was so how many times onset when I'd be like way more efficient if they would just do this or if they would just shoot me from this angle. 'cause I already know that lightings bad it it's GonNa take three hours by would just keep my mouth shut because no one wants to listen to the model onset and now I'm like no. My time is worth something and I'm going to say it and we're going to move on. We're going to get this done right. Did you feel like you had a support system in those early years. You weren't the household name and you had those opinions. I mean my family was a huge support system for me but ultimately nobody in my family was involved in industry previously so they could only give me advice from their personal life experiences so I felt a little bit lost becoming well known it was like how do I deal with anything. Everybody was overwhelmed. No one really knew the advice to give me and then shooting the other woman cameron and Leslie gave me like just so many life lessons. That was such a fun movie to watch. I had fun and watching it and it seems like you guys had fun filming it so much fun. Filming US shade you find mentorship from Rotary with other models that were coming up at the same time or is it pretty competitive. I feel like it's not as competitive as people think because when you're a model it's up to the client. I'm maybe the only place that it gets competitive is your agents like Oh is my agent giving me those same opportunities or I should be doing this. I never felt like I was competitive. Have with other girls and you ultimately do work with other models so you become friends. You're in the same place. I mean everybody. She has jealousy but I didn't feel like it ran friendships or
