Lyssa Mandel Embraces The Woo - burst 5
"Are you one those people that thinks that new york will never come back. I think it will come back. Because i think that new yorkers are like cockroaches but it's gonna come back in a very different way and it might look a little more like detroit where you know. Maybe a lot of the big money doesn't come back. The big corporate businesses might not come back because they're all doing remote work. But i think that there's going to be a lot of space for artists to flourish. And that's what i'm excited to see honestly.

Tennessee could could move. Move up a little bit and the gators right now are somewhat on that eight nine line so if you missed it earlier. Alabama just destroyed mississippi state at time.

Notre Dame Ranks in Top 5 College Football Programs
"I watched the clips of brian. Kelly press conference and he looked like he was exact exasperated. And i don't know if you're a notre dame fan. How do you feel about this. Because he's i mean he's a really really good coach. We do these top. Twenty five lists every year and brian. Kelly definitely should be in the top five and they have really good players. But i don't know and he's right alabama's done this to almost everybody. They actually didn't do it. The florida but you know was there were still you know it's like we'll see if ohio state gets closer. So let's let's fill people in on the quotes if they didn't see them after the game not surprisingly. Maybe he was surprised. I don't know he was asked a lot about. How does the here how frustrating the question was how frustrated is. How frustrating is it to get to a playoff again lose by this margin the margin not the issue. Losing his losing. I don't know really. What the inferences. This football team battled and they made more plays they being alabama made a few more. Plays on the perimeter. I'm not sure really what the question is when you lose football games you know. There's a few more plays jeff to make. We had the opportunity. You watch the game. I watched the game So everybody needs to continue to carry this narrative that not not good enough. Look at the scores of the games. The albums played all year. And i think when you start changing the narrative little bit then somebody asks as you look at it. You feel like the program has gotten a lot closer. What's the next step. You feel like you guys could take need to take i. I don't really wanna continue to go down this path. We're going to keep getting here okay. And we're gonna keep banging at it and you guys watched the game in you. They had the college football player of the year. Who made some dynamic place. We battled. We were right there. So we're going to keep getting back here. And i'm sorry i don't like it or the national media doesn't like it but we're going to go back to work we're gonna keep recruiting. We're going to put ourselves back in this position again I mean i know. He's got to defend the program. And you know what's he going to say like. Oh yeah we're we're we've got a ways to go But you're right like if you're ordering fan who who still believes deep down the program. That should win the national championship. How do you feel about your coach. Basically coming on saying he's basically trying to say yeah. We don't have a devante smith. We don't have nausea harris. But we were good enough that like if we caught them on the day we could one maybe is that is that we took from it. Yeah and i'm thinking about it. It's like this notre dame team. And i would say it from the last from the jalen smith Ronnie stanley era up. So whatever it is i guess. Maybe it's the last five or six years they've had like some special athletes right. I mean ronnie stanley elite talent offensive lineman jalen field. Jalen fields. Jalen was is home. Ultra talented linebacker. They've had Kyle hamilton is as athletic as any any safety. The country i mean they have some of these guys will fuller was as fast and dynamic as any receiver just about. I mean it's not like they haven't kyran williams of big time running back they just don't have quite enough of them right. I mean like they don't have any of them. It's not like you know. The the line from joey galloway said like northwestern's a bunch of reese davis's you know the inference there is like notre dame has has some guys who would play anywhere and they've always had a bunch of good offensive linemen. They have good tight ends. I don't think they're light years away from having like a team that could win a national title. I mean they're they're a top five team. It's just you know. I don't know like like maybe this is a better way to frame it. Like if they were playing ohio state they have somehow gotten by alabama. I mean Let's take alabama out of the equation if they were playing ohio state and somehow it was a two three game. Let's say let's say that it was just a playoff game but it wasn't. You know as the i. I could see Notre dame beating ohio state. Even after what. I just saw from ohio state alpha. If justin feels plays away did tonight. I couldn't but like i don't think it's out of the realm of possibility like i think there are. You know i watched their. I think notre dame's better team than georgia. I think not notre dame honesty's a better team than florida now. It's easy to say that after you've seen some of these teams get exposed some but lake and those teams. Those teams have played with alabama on a given night right. So i just don't think they have as much margin for error right
Ohio State shocks Clemson & Bama dominates Notre Dame
"And we're taping this about an hour after a pretty stunning performance by ohio state crushing clemson in the semi final game and so we both had two games. There were both blowouts but the second one didn't go the way anybody thought rights to yeah to blow outs. One felt like the game. You expected alabama notre dame. The other one. I never in a million years that i think it would play out that way. And maybe that's my bad. Maybe i should have more faith in the buckeyes though having only seen them six times having only seen them play A couple big games. Nobody could have seen that coming. Nobody could have six touchdowns from dustin fields in snaps dominant performance. I think the thing i most underestimated was just how much fuel they were playing with from the For at the very least from last year's game that they've been holding onto this for twelve months Davos ballot played a role. Who's to say but clearly it was one of those situations where a team just comes out on fire. I hesitate to go down this road With you. But i'm gonna go there. Look you know what justin field pretty fantastic for the first three games of the season against lesser competition. And then he had that three. Pick game against indiana. Who's a good team was probably the best team. They played all season and then they played in the big ten championship game. They played a really good defense at northwestern and he looked like he lost confidence. I i don't know that but he just there was no chris. Alaba ver- and trae sermon ran the ball. Like he'd never run before and looked great. And but the passing game was left a lot to be desired to the point where A lotta people were saying. Hey wilson's now the the number two pick quarterback guy in the draft behind trevor lawrence. Now you fast forward. After this. And i'm talking to different people in football circles. Who our coaches. And they're like i would just discussions going to be really interesting now. What the jaguars may have between trevor lawrence and just field so just like justin feels was phenomenal tonight especially after taking a big shot. In the ribs from james galaxy that ended up being targeting and scou- scott ejected from another playoff game. Just like he did last year against shoe. But i mean these were some deep shots that he was throwing down field. I just thought well how they look terrific on really on both sides of the ball. I think they looked better than they had on. Defense a- this year given the competition but the one eighty on justin field from where he was where people felt about him after the northwestern game. I mean am. I understanding that am i stating that. I mean you. See the same thing i'm seeing. A lot of people were panicking about him. After the northwestern game in will i would say with the three interceptions against indiana and then the way he looked against northwestern. But how much do you think is with a higher state for you know. Not only they not played as many games so they haven't had As much time to figure their team out like trae sermon wasn't even factor until the last game and now he's he's had two huge games back to back. But then got chris alavi back. He missed the title game I mean they've had dating back and keep track of which week it was when they had their covert outbreak but and they had to cancel a game. But i mean they've had guys obviously going in and out of The twenty one day quarantine. That is now what seventeen days Like the day was out at one point like they may just be a case of. They finally got their whole team together at once. And they actually didn't those there were without three starters You know harry. Miller is one of their better offense of lineman. There were without a couple of defensive. Lineman they were allowed master teague forgotten man. Because that's not fair to him. But the way trae sermon trish. All of a sudden turned into the same same version that we saw ezekiel. Oh here by. The ezekiel elliott. Who was not even like in all conference honorable mention or second team all conference to the big ten year. They win the title because he just went wild in the three postseason games. And and now we're seeing trae sermon. Do that transform. It looks like they got. Adrian peterson to transfer from oklahoma compared to like elevated his game to ridiculous proportions. The i will say this. I feel like of the two of us. And i'm not trying to pop on the back here I feel like of the two of us. I was a little more of a believer in having a little more believer in justin feels. Maybe than you were at least as a passer. And i think some of that honestly stems from hearing all the elite eleven guys. And seeing him there where they raved about him in ways to a degree that they said. He's probably the most talented player they've had come through their Or quarterback and he looked like that god and i mean. This was the had some great performances. Obviously the numbers. You put up last year and at times this year. But i mean on that stage. The one thing that jumped out at me and you are both at the national title game in that stadium. A year ago was when it was head to head because trevor lawrence look fantastic when he shredded alabama as a true freshman. And that's when the hype. I would say that's when all of a sudden everybody fell in love with trevor lawrence and he is gonna be the first pick in the draft and a couple of years from now and he's done nothing to undermine that he's been terrific off the field. He's been terrific on the field. But joe burrow really was like outshine them last year in that head to head and certainly You know with justin feels it today just kind of was it was an amazing
Louisiana State University parts ways with Bo Pelini after one season as Tigers overhaul defensive coaching staff
"There are multiple reports out there right now. That bo pollini is gone from. Lsu that Experiment did not work very well. So several media outlets reporting this hour. That bo pollini is not coming back on twenty one. That was certainly the most controversial decision that it owes. You're on made let's Welcome in stewart. Mandel to the program. Stuart thank you very much Before we even get to the ball situation. I'd like to get your thoughts on that Well paul i gue-. I guess i would say that. That's something that we've all expected. Since about the second game of the season it just a bad higher and you know it's interesting that a year ago Does ron was getting all the praise in the world for an inspired Higher joe brady the passing game coordinator. Who kinda helps And it was instrumental in joe burrow's rise and that national championship. And then you had some staff changes to make this after this past season and we hire both lean. He's a big name and he's had success before and i get that but it just seemed like it was just such a terrible fit. He tried to revamp their scheme entirely. And this was a program. That had success under dave randall. On defense it wasn't broken. Tried to completely revamp the scheme regardless of the personnel. They lost so many guys to the draft last year and then and then even more before the season. And i just wasn't a good fit and just just a historically bad defensively shoot this year.
Coaching search updates: Kevin Steele the favorite at Auburn
"Obviously we're in the middle. Coaching carousel to and i think the most interesting one right now is auburn I think they spent twenty one point. Five million dollars to buy out gus malzahn. We could argue whether he should have been fired or not the end of the day. He lost the momentum there and they the boosters put the you know got out the hat and collected the money and they fired him. So you think okay. You're gonna fire Coach gus malzahn. All that money. You're going to want to go out and get like the splashes possible coach. You can get tell us who's actually leading the coaching search right now as we reported this morning. That sources are telling me that the front runner for this job right now is defensive coordinator kevin steele and while that may blow some people's minds. He has some very very influential people at auburn who are big believers in him and in his corner at auburn. Especially that matters right so look We have a story up but the athletic now about who's in the mix there and the ones. I think one of the people who is really a big contender against kevin steele on this front is lane. Kiffin at ole miss But i think he would have a hard time turning that job down. I think he's obviously a big name. Now he's foreign four. It's it's interesting in that. I think a saturday's game between ole miss and lsu doesn't mean a whole heck of a lot. You know outside of those two programs. But i think it may may need a little bit of something potentially at auburn as crazy as it sounds because for some people at auburn i think they could shape it and saying all right kevin steele dreadful run as the head coach at baylor twenty. Plus years ago he was one and thirty one in big twelve. Play at baylor is a long time ago but people. I've talked to down there have made the case where you know what at had a bad record. The first time he was a head coach and he just won a national title a year ago. And my my counter. That was well. He did have to times as interim pretty lengthy runs where he was at least able to show people he's evolved and grown and those people said look a people at auburn feel like kevin steele's been the guy who's hold it together for them the last few years he is very well respected within the scc And so also know how. Attractive is lane to auburn. He did a really good job at fau their foreign You know if he loses to. Lsu's not very good this year. He's foreign five. I think probably diminishes a little bit No its first year. It wasn't like anybody expected out all messed great. But he's definitely a candidate As billy napier from louisiana Maybe who freezes is somebody that that auburn would push for. I think and you still have steve sarkisian there. You know also in the state of alabama So it's a really interesting. Search in auburn is wildly unpredictable. What does but From what i heard they would love to have a coach Decided upon by the beginning of next week
Coastal Carolina will play BYU after Liberty game canceled
"It's not offering you wake up on a thursday morning to news that a new game has been added to the schedule. And it's a really great game Coastal carolina was set to host game day this week and they were gonna play liberty which also been pretty decent game. Liberty unfortunately had a big code outbreak. They had to cancel her. Pull out and lo and behold coastal and byu together and made this contingency plan in now. Bruce we've got two undefeated teams meeting saturday new year six Implications you know i. I was not rooting for liberty to to get bad results by any means. You don't want anybody to to get covid. But the upshot of it is we actually got a better game. Yeah i think in some ways this as much as any game we've had kind of an capsule isas Pity misers twenty twenty college football season the fact that this game was basically thrown together in the last forty eight hours Dino have coaches from from byu who are basically doing a crash course study on coastal and now vice versa. It's happening and on top of it is probably the most interesting game of the of the weekend in were in early december. I was gonna say late november but yeah we're in early december late in the year and to me this is the most compelling matchup of the weekend

Election 2020 Analysis: Bethany Mandel, Ron Kampeas
"Mandel is an editor writer and podcast at ricochet and online hub. For conservative conversation she's also a rising social media star and conservative columnist. Who has garnered quite a bit of attention. In recent months decrying the government overreach of quarantine restrictions and going from being a never trumper in two thousand sixteen to supporting the president's twenty twenty reelection in a recent column in the forward she talks about why pollsters trying to project the election's outcome got it so wrong once again but don't expect this conversation to be a breakdown of methodology and shifting demographics. Her explanation is much simpler than that and she will explain bethany. Welcome to people of the pot. I think you so much for having me. I'm sorry for the puppy noise. You might hear in the background okay. Now before we begin. I want to remind our listeners. Ajc is a nonpartisan five. Oh one c. Three not for profit entity that neither endorses nor opposes candidates for elective office. So anything i say or ask or challenge really is in pursuit of an explanation. Because i do want our audience to listen so bethany for those who did not read your column. Tell us why. Pollsters predicted a blue wave that we did not see in last week's election so i think that there's going to be a lot of explanations that become clear over the next few months there might be problems with the way that they call people how they call people but i noticed anecdotally and i was saying for months beforehand the most simple explanation for why i thought that it would be extremely close or why the president would garner. Reelection is just because people were lying because they didn't feel comfortable telling the truth and when they would get a call who you voted for from a stranger because you don't actually know who upholstery is. And you can't confirm their identity on the phone When they get a call from pollster hi. I'm just curious for you're voting for. They're not going to tell you on the phone who they're voting for. And in my column i give a story that i thought was really illustrative of my thinking on it coming up prior to the election. Which was i have a. I have a girlfriend who lives in a swing state. i think it's north carolina. And i asked her at the outset of our conversation who e-voting for just sort of in passing and she said. I am still undecided. I don't know what to do and we had a very long conversation. And what we're really talking about was actually. She was doing a conference that got cancelled by a social media. Mob and people were falsely accused of racism. Yada yada and the entire six months of work that she did for the conference just went up in smoke and and it was cancelled and so we were talking about that. And i said this is the kind of stuff that makes people vote for trump. Because he talks about this. Like social media mobs the cancel culture in all these things and i was kind of laughing about how this experience would make her into a trump voter over the course of our conversation. I said yeah. I'm voting for trump this summer on. I never thought i would have done that for years ago. And she was like wait. A second you are and i forgot that. She doesn't follow me on social media. She doesn't know. Sort of where i fall and i said yeah my buddy for trump and she was like oh i am too. I mailed ballots in weeks ago. And she's a friend of mine and we were having an hour long conversation and it was only after i told her that i was voting for president trump that she admitted that she was as well. And so we finished texting. And i looked at my husband and i said the polls were wrong. If this woman who i've known for five years didn't feel comfortable telling me who she was voting for until i told her there's no way we'll no much was made that there were fewer undecided voters in this year's polls but also sounds like what you're saying is that there was even smaller number because those who said they were undecided or at least some of them voted for trump right or they were lying and they said they were voting for biden instead. I i think that that's definitely a possibility as well. Okay now why would they have said president biden. What been the reasoning there. That's the safe answer in this. Cancel culture environment that you know voting for vice. President biden was stackable incorrect dancer. But i think that I think that a lot of people probably unfit apply. I'm curious if you've gotten any feedback from people who read your column and said how dare you call us liars absolutely. Not every single person understood. Even i as someone who works in the media until the eleventh hour did not want to say i was voting for president trump. Because i knew that every time he does something stupid from then on out people with throw that calm back in my face and say this is what you signed on for whatever reality. I'm like. I signed a deal with the devil and i knew i was signing a deal with the devil and i'm not not raw about him. I'm not maga- it's it's an unfortunate situation and it is what it is something that really frustrated me in the wake of biden's election was people sort of saying koumba. Let's all come together and we're were you three years ago. Where were you last year. Why didn't you speak up for the covington. Boys and pete buttigieg was one of the people who was saying it and your staffer. Literally making lists of trump administration employees to blacklist them and to strip them of their livelihood and i think people across the spectrum have different opinions of people who worked in the administration. I know a million of them and they understood the deal that the that the devil that they made to and they were trying to uniformly serve our country and to mediate. Trump's trump. Nece and i think they did a great job and i am appreciative of the work that they did in every single department they worked in and they made it possible for us to come out of the last four years. Fine we're fine as a country and pete bridges people. His former staff are making lists of all of these people and pitas coming out. And saying you know. Let's all come together. I'm like okay. Put your money where your mouth is and publicly denounced what your staff are doing. Where is that being reported. I don't know where it's being reported. It's called the trump accountability project. And if you google it. I'm sure only conservative media are covering it because that's how it is. They had a website called trump accountability project. And it's time for people to put their money where their mouth is a little bit on this and no one is and michelle. Obama tweeted something the other day. That was you know. Half of americans who voted for him are x y. You know the whole litany of and this is not. I don't know how you move forward. When that when the former first lady is impugning the motives of half of the americans that voted for for trump. And you're not. You're not voting for racism. You're not voting for you. Know i think. I think that's a really simplistic way of looking at things. And it's also a really divisive and toxic way and if biden wants to actually move forward in a kun-bae off fashion say something about what michelle obama tweeted now. I want to reiterate what you said at the beginning. Bethany that this is just your theory. it's based on anecdotal evidence. There are many reasons why the polls might not have panned out this year. But let me ask you this. Not all pollsters work for media some work for politicians who are trying to assess what their constituents want. Do you think people understand that. Not being truthful about their preferences might undermine the whole democratic process. Do you believe that so. That's an interesting question. Because in some part it undermines the thesis of my piece because we saw that the internal polling that was done by campaigns was actually far superior to that of the media companies. And i think that people are more apt to trust a cloister that is not in the media because people don't trust the media dot readily and that distrust has been well earned by the media but the internals that we can gather that the biden campaign was getting told them to go to georgia and it seemed like a crazy idea and they were right to do so. So i i think that the internal polls that campaigns had were better than the media hat by. I don't think it undermines the democratic process because is not essential to the democratic process. It just it gives campaigns some idea of where they should be focusing and what their messaging should be but overall the democratic process is completely hinged upon votes. And that's really what counts at the end of the day well bethany. Thank you so much for. Your thoughts really intriguing thoughts. I really appreciate that. And i hope our listeners. Think about it i hope. I hope you've given them food for thought. Thanks

New Generation Of D.C. Statehood Advocates
"On a recent evening about sixty young people in their late teens and early twenties log into a zoom meeting. They live all over the country from new. Jersey to California but they're committed to the cause the organizers start introducing themselves I everyone. My name is Jen Mandel black. I'm Michael I use he him pronouns. Hi Everyone. My name is Jimmy the advocates on this call are preparing to meet with their US senators virtually of course to talk making Washington DC The fifty first state organizer Michael Copy says statehood is one of the key civil rights issues of our time over seven hundred thousand DC residents most of whom are black and Brown folks do not have access. To be the very democracy that surround sound, this big statehood energy is relatively new as recently as a decade ago, statehood was seen as a political dead end Democrats in Congress generally supported it but they didn't make the legislative priority even when they had the chance seventy, nine year old niece Jenkins started advocating for statehood in the late nineteen, ninety s we are the old school we are the gangsters. Of the statehood movement, the Oh Geez back then DC was still struggling to get on solid financial footing statehood did not go over. Well, we were Kinda ridiculed for DC, statehood was not on anybody's limps, grassroots, activists and officials like DC Mayor Mariel Browser made it a priority in this hyper partisan time we're living in DC statehood has become a core part of the National Democratic Platform, the House of Representatives the summer passed a bill supporting DC statehood for the first time in history. The next hurdle is getting it through the Senate which advocates hope will soon be controlled by Democrats. A new generation is on board with this 'cause on the recent zoom call twenty, two year old DC resident demi strap man gives her fellow advocate some advice when it comes to preparing to meet with actual elected officials or their staff you have to be confident to not feel like you're invading their space. They are your elected officials. You have the right to speak with them because she's from DC Stratton no senators to lobby herself and the district's one representative to Congress Eleanor. Holmes Norton can't vote on final versions of bills. That's why young advocates today are hyper focused on getting people from outside the district on board with the statehood 'cause I actually grew up in Pennsylvania. So I kind of took my representation for granted before right moved to DC twenty, four year old Noah wills now lives in the district and runs the advocacy group students for DC statehood he's working to expand their chapters at universities side the district he also wants to get university students in. DC. Bought in while they live here and by doing so they're there really are gateway to the rest of the country wheels and other statehood advocates still have a lot of convincing to do last year in a Gallup poll less than a third of Americans said, they favor d. c. becoming a state. But after this summer's protests over police brutality, some young advocates WanNa push a angle to the statehood 'cause racial justice twenty, two year old DC native Jamal Holtz, points out. The DC is forty, six percent black retreated a second class citizens, and so these statehood is a civil rights issue. Holt says the black lives matter movement and DC statehood are completely intertwined for the first time in his life. He feels like statehood is possible if Democrats take the White House. And Senate and make it a priority. He grew up wanting to be the mayor of Washington DC, and now he's already thinking about adjusting that dream. It'll give me a new goal in life and not limit myself the mayor but make it governor for Wam you I'm Michaela. FRAC to

ACC schedule includes Notre Dame, 10 conference games
"We're pleased to be joined. Now by our colleague NAP Fortuna nobody's more plugged in AC and also Notre Dame who is now at least for one football season a member of the ACC we were just talking a little bit offline map, but it's been kind of a whirlwind where this meeting of the president's for for Wednesday we knew about it for. A while and they were gonNA have poor. I. Was they're gonNa vote on one of few schedule models and then the day before it became no, they're not ready to vote. It's GonNa get pushed back a week and then all of a sudden band with almost no warning there was a full press release with the whole schedule model on everything. What happened. Like everything else when it comes to college football news amid pandemic I think everyone is learning things from anyone other than the primary source. So to speak I mean this was a rare case where a reported him break this story that the League was able to put this story out on its own terms and I think. Being that this was a president driven decision that probably shouldn't be too surprising because those guys are the ultimate. Shock collars when it comes to weather there will there won't be football. This fall but. Athletic Directors were not on that Board of Governors meeting call today they had. Kept them abreast of what they were talking about him models and so forth. But. As you said, I mean I was told as recently as yesterday. Tuesday that. The eighties were not ready to present a model that they were ready to go with just in light of the MARLINS fiasco with the. MLB. On Monday the evergreen situation going on there they still wanted to to to flesh things out and. figure out what the best approaches and I do think it's the irony of all ironies that as soon as the ACC puts out this press release, our friend Ross Stellar over sports illustrated has a report in the SEC is going to go conference only which. In many ways I can't help but think contradicts what the ACO is trying to accomplish right when they want to keep that one non-conference late open. Matt. Let me ask you this. So, as part of this deal Notre Dame is gonNA share the TV revenue from its home games with the rest of the members. How how big of a concession is that for them and was you? had been a stumbling block before and what do you think was in jacks bricks mind when when this kind of deal was presented to him I think operating under the assumption here for the sake of this conversation that there will be a season. I. I think that's a pretty big concession Notre Dame that's a deal as a private school that. Is Not public. We don't know the details I mean we. A. Very strong. I guess if you will that it's in the range of fifty million dollars or so and that it's significantly less than what they would be getting. From TV rubbing new distribution standpoint if they had joined the conference fully but I don't think that's a small matter that Notre Dame is is all in on the ACC at least for this year that they will be sharing that revenue in that they'll be you know. Frankly the big picture first time in one, hundred, Fifty, eight years of Notre, dame football they're going to interest season competing for a conference championship I mean that's that's very very. Big Ding even say finishing third place right they don't even come close to qualifying for they see if the season goes on just the fact that we're saying that that Notre Dame fans are reading that in hearing that and learning that about their school today I. think that is a very, very big headline when you talk about the Notre Dame, not just as program Business Itution, it's extraordinary I don't think you can understate how I mean they're they're the it's one of those issues or or griping points that. For my whole career I mean it's just been a constant. Why won't they join a conference? Somebody should force them to join a conference and then a permanent obviously but something finally. Put them in a position where they. Had to join a conference and I don't know the giving away the TV money. You know I don't I don't have the numbers, but that could end up being awash because they don't make that much from NBC and if they also get to now get a bigger share a full share of the you know the larger. ACC, ESPN deal I mean for all we know. They're making more money out of it. I don't know but the fact that they. So how how you know the Notre Dame fan base like how are they going to be feeling about this? There's the independence is such a point of pride obviously. But also if they didn't do this, there was a decent chance they were gonNA, end up with like a six game schedule. I think the initial reaction will be surprised in disappointment. Now, those feelings may linger throughout the course of this twenty twenty football season or they could be gone Tuesday when the Board of Governors of the NCAA makes a ruling on. How if and how the season will proceed and I can't help but think I may sound cynical here. But part of me wonders if it in the back of the decision makers minds at Notre Dame, they know what? Like the silent part is out loud. So to speak, they just don't think that season it's going to be feasible and if it makes everyone happy. Everything copacetic to just say, yes and concede to have everyone move forward in as unified of a front as possible under one umbrella as the ACC. then. They were willing to do that and maybe could. Bank that goodwill on the back end, I don't know that. That's me kind of theorizing here digging out loud. But I do think that headlined just seeing the press release seeing Notre Dame eligible for a conference title game I think that is a not insignificant. It's just like you said it's a conversation it's a question. I it's taken up. You know a chapter of your book God knows how many hours of our time on twitter at a mailbags and so forth t to hear the words Notre Dame, and let's say, Hey, you know they do play Clemson on their schedule and it's No divisions US here. So the top. Winning percentage teams go hypothetically. They could lose the CLEMSON and beat Clemson or be Clemson lose clemson. For the ACC title, I'm just picturing right now they're hockey team is currently the back to back big ten champions I'm trying to picture a big time championship. A banner. Compton. Ice Pavilion. A right down the road from an ACC championship banner at Notre Dame Stadium if the season out there, and if they were to to win the League because that would be pretty pretty funny. It would seem like it would make them more likely though for this to at some point, be permanent because I the argument I've always heard is nor named loves the aspect of of the uniqueness of not being. like everybody else, and at least for this year with all the craziness that's going on, they're going to be like everybody else to a large degree and find out they really. Like, Hey, this is cool. Seriously

"They keep out and keep adding that. He then told the story about how he didn't WanNa, do dealer. No deal and he wanted to give. You right He, Kinda WanNa pack in his own career. Honest honest to admit. But surprising for someone who has. WHO's driven and has such a passion well for life and being show business that it got to the point where his? It's a great story, and it got the point where his wife had kind of forced him to do it. And obviously he's thankful that he did Andy Mandel yeah. Yeah I. Sh-, that's a great story to just I. Always Love hearing that people have been married especially in Hollywood for so long, but you know, I don't know if you remembering and I vaguely recollections of Howie Mandel pre deal or no deal. He was like I hate using this term, but like he hadn't you know like I. What would you call like a? been what he had that kind of Stink felted he did. Ya Okay I see. Someone using an offensive term. It's an offensive show business, but I feel like I can use it because I've been there. I know what that feels like to like. Go have great success to. Just of Have A podcast. It's funny, though shows how it shows how absurd and freight any show business to go front. Thing like I don't want to do the show and I'm so embarrassed that I shy nosed episode. That I'm bring my family out of the country because I don't want to be there an air. Yeah, then five days later, one hundred million homeless. It was an overnight faces on billboards. I mean there was an over week. It was an overnight is a mislead over fortnight. Yes, yeah, but he. I, I also find it really interesting that his strength on that show what came to be his strength, and why he's so such great host for that show is. It had very little to do with his comedic gifts I mean not fair. I shouldn't say that no had less to do this. Community gifts and more to do with his. His empathy. Yes, just how connected? He I was interesting teleprompter. They're saying like no. No, don't don't convince them to. It makes sense to steal makes sense for financially, and it makes better TV. Yeah. They turned down the deal. That show was always. I I feel the. Stress of it and I always got the impression that he really wanted to do. Well succeed or not I mean clearly not lose it all. Really came across. Yeah, that's interesting that he illustrates that with he still remembers the first contestant and that's as he was saying that it was a feeling a familiar feelings. I watched a lot of that show. And I would often have that feeling. which was you Kinda fall in you get to like the contestants, and like you hear a little bit of their story, and they seem excited and like they're gonNA. They're into it. And then they start get. The greed starts to take over and you you think don't do. It's like this could change. You could use this money. Versions of that when you gambling in Vegas when the people got a table with our our making really bad decisions and and thinking of someone. And you and maybe a future guests. It's maybe hopefully it's heartbreaking to see I, know until they get an iconic TV show and. Asked are making millions of dollars, so they can afford to go to Vegas. Rations say we're talking about, but a friend of ours great guy yet he would. He was just making crazy swings at the table. I actually remember falling love with blackjack. Trip to, Vegas. An ex girlfriend and she laughed, she went back to La and I and my friends from coming to handle your gambling. No, no, we. We were doing it together. It was we were having so much fun, and but I had like not quite twenty four hours on my own between her leaving, and my friends coming in and. Came to meet me. At the tape, I was so excited to see them some of them like Togo and Nick Vanessa I hadn't seen them in a while. And and I I got so into blackjack that I saw them coming in the casino. They saw me. I waved over them, and I was just so consumed by the game that when they came up to me, they were like dude. What's up, act? I wouldn't even. Even get up to greet them, because I was still in the middle of the hand, hold on one second daughter and they still go, said later, that I was like a cross between it was like Jackson Browne and alum had a baby was all like pay. Nick was I like Howard Hughes Really Pale and long hair, and I've been there really, and you have to shake yourself out of it, but. I. See how people addicted to gambling it to. I felt that that draw really it's Kinda scary. It's scary. I, know and like you don't want to go away on doing well, and it's so devastatingly or not. We ride this crazy rollercoaster Razi wave like any drug I I guess so. He's talking about getting his start in show business, and and how he he. kind of did things without thinking about them, and you just got jumped on stage. Dare just to like. It seemed like a person, but it's seem like the same guy own whereas OCD and obsess over things, and if anything I would think that Kinda guy would overthink. Getting up on stage. But, but he clearly doesn't, and and as illustrated by the lightning round where he didn't put any thought into any of his answers. Did you notice who's just like first thing that came to my all my? mind. Question the next one right and for an OCD person that surprise me because I. Would I, and maybe I'm stereotyping OCD people, but it seems like. That type of person would really think through the risers. Your Typo, CD, maybe maybe about also, aren't you? I'm so curious now to go back and look at some of his early up stuff. Because he made it sound like he was just winging it and like his his charm was that he didn't know what he was doing and. I'm that can't I mean I'm sure I? Know it evolved from that, but I am curious to see how it evolved because he said he was. He was up there with he mentioned a couple of other comedian Jerry. Seinfeld and we'll that's once. He had made it. That'd be not when he started out when he first started out he he got popular, but doing that things with with the rubber glove. Germaphobe. Apparently heat did that bit so many times. I was reading that it messed up his. Nose like the cartilage is nose or something like blowing it out and he had all this damage in Colina. Yeah, oh my nuts. It's also crazy that story about how he got saint elsewhere now he he thought stories. That was his only real act. I mean that was the. He said there was the only auditioning ever Gone Wild Let. US read a letter. You know I love this last name candidate into onto this pitch Kim McClure.

The the the baby, didn't he like a little bit like am I getting that wrong? Baseball cap I haven't seen Bobby's world and longtime baby on family guy. Is the one who him? I. Don't think so now. Maybe he looked more like what he looked like a little boy. All American. Yeah, the Bash Yeah like a kid. You would see in like a textbook of just a boy. Yes, yeah, I think I think it's been a while. I've always felt a kinship with Howie Mandel ever since I learned that he was Germaphobe, because I consider myself a bit of a Germaphobe and someone who has ocd I, but find out you're in from him. It's hearing him. Talk about the OCD. My version of it is much less extreme than his which I know, he even he made. It sound like it would technically qualify. Viewers would be. I don't know the I don't know the extent of your. I know you've talked about having Germaphobe but I have legitimate OCD things. Where like what is how? I remember the other night we were at the lake and I know I'm just asked. About this I was like I washed my face the act. Yeah, that's right away. Every time I wash my face. Yeah, that's the exact same lex strokes with my with my hands. I do the same thing I have certain routines that I have to do, and if I don't do them, I feel like I'm not doing it right. If a touch things at certain times, yeah, but he sounds like it's a real struggling gig really. In the back that. Yeah I know but like. I would have a hard time. When he told that the puppetry of the penis guy touching now, I would have a hard time a really hard time touching that, but I would do it. You get over it to get out of the room I would. I'd use my shirt. Isn't that what he did? No, he explained why he couldn't do that for some reason he. I think he started untucked shirt tails and he. Just Open. It. Just do it and they wouldn't let them use done that before i. mean before this whole pandemic, now, of course, everything's changed, but I remember doing that using my shirt, open doors, or to touch buttons and stuff. We definitely if I knew, I was going to be eating something with my hands. You know I I would be very aware. And I remember feeling shame, a degree of shame if somebody will catch me doing it, speaking of germs, yeah, how crazy is puppetry of the Penis Oh my God you? Have you seen it? No, but I've seen it, you have. Always Kinda wanted to. Tickets out way to. No I I saw a video of it somewhere. Some explain what it is. Oh Yeah, Oh, no, no, no I don't know. Everyone knows it was a show New, York. Right and I think he may have started on Australia which. I may be making that up because. As far as I know, it's an off Broadway show. Where Shirley's are known for playing with their peanuts, where men. Manipulate their genitals in different sort of clownish ways like like you're making likes the balloon animals. But not at a kids party right? Were they like? Turn it inside Oh. It's crazy drudge. Haven't you done stuff like that? I mean like. In the way that you know people listening right? Now like? We're probably Mandel has true OCD. Compared how he went to like a real puppet puppetry of the penis. What would you call someone in that? Master puppetmaster of the Penis. Puppet master of his. Own Domains yeah. That's good, but. Denver I mean who hasn't played with you know done shapes and stuff shapes well. You'd see what you can do that. You especially like the woman. The woman, of course, the perse alien brain, the brain that I like the per the where you put everything in the purse. What is that? I'd never heard that. Yeah Furry Murray was the free marine. Is, this a slippery slope. Slippery scrotal slope. Anyway I've always wanted to see that. Surprised, you've never seen it so surprised by that. You know he like peanuts not fascinated by penises. Puppetry new life, you love, Dina Says No, but there's it's. It's actually really I mean this not. Gross way? It's really cool what they're able to do with their things with their schneck. Yeah, it is I would would like to see it at some point. I wish you'd asked him what he would want to replace the handshake with my God I know. That was one of the questions on the list. It's one of the I know. Howie Mandel popular popularized the fist-bump on dealer. No deal. Yeah I always I've always been grateful I want to ask him this, too. If between the fist-bump like between setups on the show, he has to go wash his hands. John I am genuinely so mad at myself that I didn't get into that with you know you guys were talking about the Jordan documentary. He was your both admire I gotTa. Stop talking about that S. Really. Constantly, you were both admiring his, but in this case a ruined interesting conclusion. Because you were talking about he. He was marveling at his drive and his passion and he was saying that basically. That's how successful people. Yeah they're talented, but they also never give up..

"It's it's so funny that you're very nature. I've always wondered that it shows I mean this is not a surprise to hear. You say that because think that's part of the real charm of the show is that there is this force that is trying to will them to just take it? The right thing. But she dealing in the world. You know it's not like we're in a business. Where you know I think there's a lot of humans that like to see others fail, because then their way of Anna feeling better about maybe where they are but I, I honestly will tell you that nothing brings me more joy to see somebody I care about don't care about. Don't know succeed, because it's just a bright light you know and if they can succeed, I can succeed if somebody fails. It scares me. This is a perfect example of of It's one thing if the person has done something I mean it's. It's also a comedy formula. Somebody's done something to deserve you know. Then, they get their up and then they fail. It's you can laugh, or you can maybe even enjoy it somehow, but these people on the show for the most part. They seem like very sweet. You know what maybe they're not sweet and maybe I don't really get to know them. I get to know them as much as the audience gets to know them, but the truth is. We're all in this. Really are all in this together and. You know again. You're saying if somebody's not sweet of the does something to you. Then what do you WanNa? Do you WANNA see? Fail Eve not. Even of their. Not a good person, and even if they've not done well by me I, don't I. Don't wish that I just think that that's you know I. as we talked about at the beginning of this, I suffer from mental health, problems and anxiety and depression, and I'm drawn a month. I'm drawn more toward the light than toward the dark so even somebody I don't really have an enemy, but even if somebody was considered enemy I e, I don't want to see anybody. Fail I really know. How maybe fail was too strong a word, but I mean I'm thinking more of a comedy formula like when? Hardy would would say something dismissive to Laurel, or he would put him down, and then he would kind of get whacked with something, or he would then look like a fool for a moment, just the the idea of balancing a bite by getting there. I love, Laurel and hardy, but but you know the the underlying feel. Like with all that Physical comedy and he'd get hit and. Seeing I am angry at him. The underlying tone was the guys were inseparable. This was a great winning relationship, and they loved each other, and they were best friends, so it didn't matter if they you know if I felt the same way about the three stooges to. The just love these three brothers. who were you know just? You know just mayhem ensued, but if there was real hatred, or that was really negative, and if it really existed, or if it was palpable, it wouldn't have worked. You were your parents. You re talking about Laurel and Hardy Richard. Pryor was an inspiration. Who when you were growing up you grew up outside of Toronto where there are other. Who are your other comedy heroes? Who did you want to be like? Did you aspire to do that as a job when you were younger now? No I was a I grew up in from Toronto and You know I told you I was born in fifty so that you know I had all these issues anxiety and it wasn't addressed. My parents were very loving and very supportive but I. have these issues. All types I didn't have a Lotta. Friends didn't think about show business I didn't. Wouldn't doesn't even make sense. You know I got into this on a dare I. Don't know if you know my background, but in the seventies in the mid Seventies. You know I didn't have a lot of friends. And at that point I think disco was all the rage. You know like studio fifty four and they had clubs in every city. You're going to, but I wasn't a drinker. Not? Not a wasn't really into at. Athleticism or gambling so that you know a couple times a week to people would show up at the Y. and have a game of basketball I never did that. I didn't play cards with friends so when they opened his stand up comedy club I just went because I had never seen. Stand up comedy live, and there's a the owner of the club. It's art resin in Toronto and it just so happened and they did that. That's Yuck Yuck. Yeah Yuks well just doing research but I I, it's still around. That's a big. It's a big venue there. It is the big, so so, but then he said anybody from the audience wants to try. This should get up. And try their wares and somebody at my table when you should do it, and I went okay, and that's part of my is actually one of my issues, but it's also served me. Well is I. Don't think of ramifications I just jumped went. Okay, and I just went to do that I. didn't I didn't I didn't do any. Work no preparation. Nothing I said okay. The joke is all show up because I'm not a comedian. Just show up on stage and I'll I'll just That'll be a comedian. That's the joke. That's incredibly. That were the because I read about the Latex Glove. Act kind of define you well. It came from it did if you look if you look at the Google like my first specialize in that? What happened was I don't say things through. I still don't and and what happened, was they said ladies, and Gentlemen Howie Mandel and I walked out on stage thinking okay, that's the joke see I did it. You said she got up. You didn't think I was going to get up. I got up and then. In that second I looked down. And you know when you've been on stage many times, but you know the spotlight kind of blind you that front row I saw their faces, and there's a strange faces that I don't recognize and they're waiting for me to do something and I'm going. Okay, I. Oh that the realization that fear. Error in Velho body and I started going okay, okay, okay, okay, all right okay, and they start giggling at my hesitation at coming up with something. Okay, okay, and and I didn't really understand why they're giggling and I said what what what tell you okay, all right, okay, okay, and if you look at my old tapes, that's my persona is just this nervous. Nervous Frenetic, Guy who has these flailing hands going? Okay, all right, okay, okay, and I put my hand, my pocket and I have an actually you're always have I have a rubber glove in my God how we just pull the rubber glove out of his pocket, always have them. Because I was always GERMOPHOBIC didn't want to touch things and I always had. The rubber glove I didn't know what to do. Okay, okay and I pulled it over my head, and over my nose, and as I was breathing, the fingers were going up and down, and I heard the audience laughing laughing at then I blew it up, and it popped off my head and I went night, and they applauded and mark. Resin was at the site because you gotta come back tomorrow. I went I do he goes. Yeah, come back tomorrow and I did and then I. Just that was.

"A little bit you know with maybe with Scottie Pippen a little bit, but but you know we all. We all hit a point where we get discouraged. Or we give up or we just stop, or we become distracted, or we just just human nature, and then there's people that dumped you know if somebody said the you know the difference between Elon Musk or a steve jobs and anybody listening to this podcast is they did it you? Did you know they really I mean they're humans like you and me. They got passionate about something, and they decided to spend the rest of their life in their garage, tinkering to make something better where you would say no, no, no, no, no I gotta finish classes I gotTa go get a job I got, but he did it and did. Not an s right other planet. These these people are like you and me. Jordan has a moment where he addresses that when he says. He addresses that some people the fact that some people may think of him is not a nice person, or his legacy has been hurt by some of the some of his behavior He said anybody who accuses me of that they haven't won anything. They've been one. I thought that was really interesting, but I your absolute, because he you know. He was Kinda myopic and had that. You know that drives move for I think that they give up. I came. I do stand up comedy and stand up. Comedy is the base for everything that I do. I gotTa tell you when I came out here in the late seventies and my God of comedy was Richard Prior. Who is at the at that time I watched them every night. Get up on stage and put together. Which I think is the seminal. Performance of any comic on film is live on the sunset strip by. Richard Pryor watched him right that every night. And at that time you know David Letterman was the host of the was the emcee at the comedy store and any. Billy Crystal in. There were so many. People so many talented now named a couple that you know there's so many talented people that maybe you don't know and so many people as funny as talented. What happened? They just stopped because of us who are doing okay in this business you know I can speak for myself and everybody that I know. There's the the amount of knows or. negativeness versus the amount you know every. Yes, becomes a very bright light. You know when I when I go to every audition, you only audition I ever got that auditioned for was saint elsewhere. You know right, but everything else they said. To Me Yeah so what I'm saying is what happens is a lot of people get. No, no, no, no, no, it's not easy, even if you're great. No, no, no, and they stop so those people just fell by the wayside. They're really talented. They deserve to be superstars. They deserve to be, but they stopped. What's the difference? Some people just kept doing it just do it. was there a moment? Were you contemplated? Maybe not doing it. Yeah, exactly so so what happen is at the end of ninety nine I did a I had a daytime talk show and And it failed the audience for me out on the road tenets right up because I wasn't traveling for a year so I wasn't selling a lot of tickets, and then I did a pilot I got this pilot, and they knocked the shit out of me. They really did. They noted me to death in I was embarrassed of what turned out I. Just said I can't. My Ego can't take this anymore. My psyche I walked I come home every night and I don't feel good about what I have done. This is just beating me up and then I get a call. Is in two thousand five I. Get a call from my manager. Michael and he goes. You know they want you to do a game show and I went. No fucking way you know, and you have to put yourself in the mindset, two thousand and five. There weren't any comedians doing game shows. In fact, the game show host was kind of like the. The punchline I'm not no, no disrespect to hey kind of like one of those guys is go like what is the talent? You're putting on a suit. You reading a Trivia question from a card you know like I I understood the skill of acting. You know having been on a drama series and writing material and coming up and trying to entertain people as a stand up comic I didn't really understand. Know they put you in A. A suit and then you go. What is the capital of California and you? Parody that and Saturday night live always had parodies, so I went no fucking way. You know what I'm already humiliated. I've already been turned down and now you want to put a nail in the coffin of my career GonNa. The last thing that people will ever remember me for is ridiculous. Say I'd get a call back about an hour later and he goes. This is what they're telling. NBC is saying. that. This is a game that is already taken the world by storm. The USA is the last to get on it so much on. They've never done this before. This is unprecedented. NBC is going to give. five nights primetime nights in a row on a week to this show. Like, are you kidding me? I've just told you. I'm humiliated by this and you're telling me that they're going to give it coverage like never got before, so it's nobody remembers Howie. Mandel career is over. Everybody's going to see that the how he meant goodbye. Third. Call Back! This is all within a half hour and he says the guy won't leave me alone..

In the hall and I heard over the speakers that they were still crazy wouldn't touch the door and he was going to pass out. I think he's really sick. And he said he had mental health issues, and he said he's going to and he said that he's medicated I heard that, and I heard it in my heart just dropped my stomach and I thought Oh my God that's. HIP new number one. I've just humiliated. You know anybody who's attached to me and I have three children and my wife's at home I mean they're not going to be able to walk out. They're gonNA you know there. husband and their father is you know has mental health province which basing inc one could admit number one number two. You know that's the end of my career. When there's millions of dollars on the line for any production. Who's going to hire somebody that can't get along without being medicated talking to a psychiatrist, so I thought. I was just devastated in the hall and I've never been in a darker spot in my life. I just thought this is I've just destroyed. My family I've destroyed my career and I've destroyed myself and I'm in the middle of Manhattan. We go go down the elevator I. Don't know what to do. I can't hear anything and I'm just I I. Look out as I'm going across the lobby. Lobby out into the street and you know New, York City like it used to be was just teaming with more people I've never felt more alone and I thought the only answer is I'll just when that door opens, I'll just run the traffic. I gotta end this I. GotTa Ms, and I walked out onto the sidewalk and I was just looking down and through my periphery a guy. Came up beside me. I didn't look I didn't WanNa make eye contact he goes. Are You Howie? Mandel and I went. Yeah, because we just don. Howard Stern I. Just heard you Howard Stern and even more. I just went like I adopted. Go One two three I'm just going to jump in the traffic. And he said the two words, which had a different meaning than than they do now, but he leaned I. Didn't understand what you're saying. He went me to and I went. Why and he went? You know I. I suffer a lot also, and I gotTa Tell You I. Don't hear people talking about this and it was really comforting, so thank you. And that was kind of like a wakeup call. At that time, there was no Emails and texting and Zoom and all that that's a book about a week. After, a week I got flooded with letters and people were saying thank you so much for being so open about your mental health, and that was the so I never decided, and then I realized for me. I opposed to other people. It was the most comforting thing because nothing. you know is more, you know. We all feel alone, and even in these times in this using the title. We're all in this together, but we're always all in this together. That's amazing how he I I don't know if people appreciate now because of people like you. How how often it's talked about mental health issues are being discussed de stigmatized, but not that long ago I I clearly remember a time where I can completely commiserate with you that that must have been. The thought of of revealing that must have been overwhelmingly embarrassing and. Difficult at incredible. I just in case, people think you're being dramatic or something. You know that's no but I still think it. Is You know it's really I don in spoken on Capitol Hill because the. Mental Health I think is. As important as physical health, and sometimes, their mental health even is paramount. Because mental health, you know mind over matter you know. If two people have surgery or something goes wrong, but somebody's just you could let yourself go you know or if you if you can garner some mental strength of coping skills, you can even heal faster, and that's tried and proven, but our you know our insurance companies don't carry the same kind of. If you don't have an x Ray, you know then you can't really. There's no place to turn. There's no place tangible. But aside from that we must remove the stigma. You know you can sit an office in Middle America. Nobody is now, but you. When you can't win in you, theory, you can go. You know what I can't lift that my backs out, and everybody will hand you a card for their chiropractor, but you can't. Say can't get anything done today because I just can't function I just my mind. I'm so depressed. I'm so anxious. I can't do anything and people just look at your. You can't say. Can I get an hour? I gotTa grew my psychiatrist I WANNA. Make it part of our curriculum I'd like to be an advocate for taking care of our mental health is the same as we. We take care of our dental health. You'll get a an x-ray ray when nothing hurts and You know look, mom, no cavities, but there's nothing in place where you know even in preschool. You're asked you questions, or there's no professional person in place to go. Oh, wait, here's a red flag. You know. I don't think gun laws are are issue as much as you know. Mental Health Laws Well, you've done a huge part in taking in the right direction there, and and how do you know? Have you been able to pinpoint exactly where you had mentioned that? The one that people often talk about? Is the the Germanophobia napping open the door in the case of a penis hand. gentlemen. Have you been able to pinpoint where that comes from. Is it as simple as because part of it is rash quite rational I mean well. What people don't understand you know the. Issue is CD I know where the germ I know what triggered the germ thing, but obsessive compulsive disorder I have the same thought as. People you know if I you know? A guy touched his penis and then touch the or it on nobody everybody very understand what I. Don't want to touch the door. The problem is that I can get triggered. Even if I shook somebody's hand and they they had a sweaty hand, and then you go. Oh, my God, that was disgusting I'm GonNa go wash my hands. Here's the problem. Mine is like I guess the best analogy is like a broken record. So what happens is I? Watched my hand because it's ICKE, like everybody with thing, and then as I walk away I go maybe I didn't get it all. Maybe I need us back into the bathroom and I watched her hands again. And you know what the waters hotter still probably some bacterium ahead I go back again and then I go back again and I could go back into their hundreds of times, hours and hours on an my life stops. I Miss Meetings I missed events with my family and it's like to. juxtapose pose to the rationale. I think I'm pretty rational intelligent. Being so I know what I'm doing is ridiculous, but I can't stop myself, so that's the. It's compulsive and I'm obsessed so the same nobody likes germs. Nobody wants to get sick. Nobody wants to touch something. IGGY I just can't get that skipping record out of my head, right? You don't have any more of an aversion to strangers. penises than most people do. There are people that are while you're using the most people. Some people largest attracted rangers. That's true. Yes, yeah, I yeah I just become frustrating. What what does that feel like?.

What made you decide to? Because I know you've been open about how? What made you decide to to talk about publicly OCD? I A you know I wrote a book about five years ago. And I and I revealed in my book. I was in about twenty. Some odd years ago I was doing the Howard Stern show.

And part of puppetry of the penis he should have been they would've. It would've made sense. Yes, it, what? Yeah, but anyway as member in. And then he was doing.

Almost the did that, and I make my way around all these infected areas in my mind, my God. I hear anything Howard was saying it was like one of those scenes from the old. Charlie Brown where they listen. I couldn't hear number finally. I heard all right well, let's it it's it's been great at. So much and I got up and I made my way around where I thought the marks were, and then I got to the door and wearing not unlike am wearing a tee shirt with short sleeves, so I can't figure out how to grab the DOORKNOB. The opening side said to Howard, or whoever was there right beside the doors it can. Somebody opened the door. That guy touched there with his.

Here supper, while people listening to from anxiety I started having an anxiety attack, and I couldn't breathe, and I thought I was having a heart attack, and I thought it was going to pass out I just quickly said Howard this is not a joke. I era bist. I go to a psychiatrist medicated. I have something called obsessive compulsive disorder, and this is I'm GonNa. Pass out, and you're GonNa die, so you better open the door, so he kind of saw that I was serious and they got up, and they opened the door, and they let out in the hall, and as I walked out into the hallway.

The Problem with Autonomous Forms of Work With Louis Florin
"So welcome back to another automated podcast episode and has always I'm your host mark for Bank of so on today's podcast? I have a discussion with Louis Florin who recently just published a paper that explores the problems of precarious situations that independent professionals can be faced with. So this episode deals less with technology or automation I think it's actually quite an important topic for a number of reasons, so the first is that a number of my previous guests as well as my future guests actually fit into this category of independent professionals thus discussed in the paper. And secondly actually the fastest growing job category out there. Even though it hardly existed only a few decades ago. So as we discuss in this episode, we expect that this form of work will continue to grow as time goes on with technological change, being one of the key factors enabling this growth, but there are a couple of others which Louis does a great job in explaining. So, Louis himself is a PhD candidate and researcher at length pick, which is a multidisciplinary lab on technology, innovation and change within organizations and the labor market. So after completing a bachelor in social sciences at the University of the edge, he graduated in a double degree master program from the University of. And Metric University which is actually where we met and studied together I part of our master's program. So! Louis is now conducting a PhD on New Forms of employment with a specific interest in employment protection reforms so I. Really hope that you enjoyed today's discussion as I not only had a great time in this discussion with Louis, but also found his points very insightful. So there. Louis thanks for coming onto the automated podcast. Hi Mark. It's a pleasure to be here and to have an opportunity to talk about my research, and to share it with your listeners here, yes. What will get into it in just a second? I mean you did have this article that was published. I think six seven days ago. but I want to. I want to discuss or ask you. I guess kind of your interest in in the work that you're doing in the research that you're doing overall in the emails that we've been having back and forth the discussion beforehand. You're talking that your interest lies in kind of the evolution of new forms of work or the evolution of employment status maybe. You can just touch on your own motivation on that because I always think that that's something that's interesting for listeners. To hear about? Yeah, exactly so my interest lies in the in the volition of employment arrangements and industrial relations in the in the last years, and especially we've so shootout technology can be called changes with that. We observe now and so what what we are observing is the blurring of the boundary between self-employment and and salaried rock, and so that that's the WHO point of is to explore the blurring of the boundary and how? Does this lead to new forms of employment, and what does that mean for the workers concerned in terms of the experience they have at work in terms of autonomy and so on, and also in terms of security, and and so Shaun prediction for example in in. The! That's the WHO the global interest of of the disease in the Disfavor Yup. Yeah, and I think it comes at a really relevant time in kind of our world, not not discussing about cove it but. Kind of the transformations that we see through the technologies that are coming about that are actually enabling these forms of autonomous work that you mentioned so I think that the research that you're doing is Yeah, as I said very relevant for this, the spirit of time executive Ed. We've we've. Of course, the technology, the technology developments on one side people, the more able to a work remotely for example vote to collaborate online, and so on so employment is. Is Not, anymore a linked to one workplace or a common work she do and we. We have more a possibility for organizing walker autonomously so. That's a of course allows people to to. To have different A. Workaround let's go outside of the traditional employment arrangements. We have seen in the last dicate. Yup Yup and I think that both of us would agree that this is something that's going to be continuing into the future as well. Actually I think you. You mentioned this in your in your paper, so maybe we can Maybe we can jump into the paper, so you had this article that was published over the last week or so, which looks at the forms of precariousness, related to autonomous work may be, you can discuss a little bit about the overall goal about the paper I. Have some specific questions that full will will get into, but Maybe you can just introduce the paper and discussed the overall goal. So the bipper. The good of the paper was to study what we mean by this quiz on Beacon Self Employment and salaried work and study Jacksonville experience of workers, and so to study this specific subject we looked into. The. Del! We could say to approach like there was the first approach would say. We have an independent push that does the concept of eyebrows which a said trump road workers. The intellectual sectors do that that would be self-employed workers working freelance. For graphic design for. Copy writing translating, it work all consistency, and so on, so that would be A. extractive We observed this group of all booming a it has been growing a by a forty five percent in the last decade. In the EU, so this is the fastest growing world closing the EU so. As today all to approach this these disposed steak on this workforce that say this is the future of work, these all highly autonomous workers that take responsibility for their own protection for the security that all completely autonomous, and so on, and as soon part of the literature that would say this is actually false. Quicker use work appeared all pushed into employment. Because they all know salaried position and linked to a precursor work arrangements, and so what we what we wanted to do is to dive into that I'm Kelly by using A. European working conditions survey, and to provide an I think what we have to do is to provide a more nuanced view about that diving the later that. The mall. Jewish that we. We have approximately sixty percents of the of the eyebrows. That's all actually what we see. Commonly, we've set employed workers, so they are highly tuna Moose, Pace, and they also, of course, if the responsibility that goes housing ending non weaver self-employment with meaning that they all responsible for the skews development for example are responsible for their working. Conditions and of course they always possible for. Generating the income. So, that would be the traditional region of trump that we see, but what? What was interesting that we see all too groups that differ from this traditional vision of center for payment we observe. These two groups of I the deed. Economically dependent I pers- which all the ones that Hall a highly economically dependent on one client, but are so they lack autonomy on their walk methods and walk pace so they after that they do not have the upside of autonomy, and they also have the downside of meaning that they are responsible for their own skaters developed Mandel responsible for journey of
NFL Draft & Post-Spring Top 25 (without spring football)
"Why don't we turn our attention? Bruce to the players who will be back in college in. Twenty Twenty On Tuesday I released my spring top. Twenty five a little different this year because usually the reason you put it out the last week. April is that everybody's completed spring practice and we use some of the insights we've gleaned from that to update the rankings. I did the morning after title game. Obviously we did not. So why did you put it out this time? Because people love rankings? Remember the the one up morning after the national title game. We didn't yet know who was going to turn pro. We didn't get there have been head. Coaching changes that happened after that game like Matt Rule Even Baylor certainly lots and lots of coordinator changes. Transfer Portal guys I'm not saying that it drastically altered the lineup by any means. But you know there's you you have more info certainly than you did The morning after the national title game so the hardest team to rank is the one we just talked about a little while ago. Lsu because on the one hand they just had this dominant season and we know their program that recruits well so there's going to be able to reload but on the other hand fourteen guys a lot and To replace fourteen guys that were drafted. Some of those very very high draft picks most notably Joe Borough and generally speaking. I look back at some of the teams that had a huge number like that. Almost always there is a drop off. The next year might not be a severe drop off so the question is okay. I had them number five. I believe The day after the title game I dropped them to eight now. It's not like something bad happened between then and now have some you know. We didn't know who his new coordinator is going to be at that point that didn't really factor into it. I just find it hard to believe you can lose that many guys and come back the next year in win the SEC again. What surprised me a little bit? When I looked I was like wait. You drop them down. They actually like Djibril Cox's it was considered by lot of people as the top Grad transfer linebacker in the country and he ended up going there which is which is interesting to see how fit in going from North Dakota state which obviously wins national titles every year till she was just one one so I was a little surprised at okay. The probably the the one area on their defense. That was a question mark. They showed up from the time. You'd sign there but I don't disagree with you. Having them eight. I mean to me. The biggest loss is going to be jober. I mean he had the greatest quarterback anybody greatest quarterback season anybody's ever had in college football. And you know I know. Miles Brennan has a strong arm. That's about all we know right and so nine Oh yes good receivers Tamar Chase as the best receiver. He would have been the best fever in this draft. He's back but they got to replace basically three. And a half starters on the offensive line and they gotta replace Clyde. That's a lot and so to have them eighth. I don't think that's I don't think that's like eye-popping I was like. I said I was a little surprised that you you drop them Just in time from that but I think that could probably be as much relative. Yeah it wasn't because of anything that it wasn't anything that happens since January in. You're right that was a big pickup In terms of Djibril Cox Just recently that morning that it went up and I'll actually for being honest. I wrote it the day of the game. it's you just get a little distance from that and I mean it could be a very wide range of possibilities probably more than most teams in there. The ceiling in the floor is probably a pretty wide range. They wouldn't be. It wouldn't be shocking to me. If I think they're still gonNA be really good on defense. I think you would agree especially up front on the defensive line. You've got probably the best cornerback in the country extinguisher. You've got to Kobe. Steven's coming back. They should be really good still on defense. It's the Joe Borough factor. It's the offensive line. It's replacing Clyde like those are big questions but if they can answer those questions and maybe they're right back in the playoff and if they can't maybe there number eight maybe they go seven and five like there's such a wide range of possibilities with them. The thing that probably surprised me the most about your updated one was really jumped Texas. A&m High move them up seven spots. So what changed? Or what sunk into you that made you feel like I'm I'm going all in on the aggies pretty much well for one thing. I'm a big believer in bill. Connolly's rankings as you know and sometimes we default to Okay they were. They had this record last year and they returned this many stars. Therefore I'm GonNa slot them here but obviously there's more to the story in terms of how much talent do they have? And I think an last year might have had a much different record if they didn't have to play Alabama Clemson and Georgia which is just an insane insane schedule.

"mandel" Discussed on The Audible with Feldman And Mandel
"Audible, presented by trader Joe's. I'm Stewart Mandel joined by Bruce belvin, and man was it hard to find a window this week for us to both beyond Skype at the same time. But we did stew as we are talking right now. And we're gonna get to our guest the later in the podcast that is crisp alita who out of you may know from college game day a lot of things we'll get to Chris in a little bit because it's still the NCAA tournament. And he is as you know, if you follow him, he's a good resource for that. Especially on the gambling side of things, but Stu is on the road. He has ventured into the southwest stoop. Please tell me you found a Torchy's Taco's. I mean, I think I hit in my twenty four hours or so Austin, I hit both of your favorite eary's pappasito's the first night Torchy's a second night. Oh my God. Now, I'm very jealous. Yes, Torchy's is. Unbelievable. I can't even emphasize enough. Like, I live in a part of the country that has good Maksim food. Good tacos. That's. The best soccer you're gonna have. We'll certainly of a fast casual variety. Yeah. And by the way tomorrow this is Wednesday on Thursday. I'll be Norman and they've got one there too. So I have to double dip. Yeah. That's I mean, your your well-positioned there. So you should double dip. So all right. But people don't wanna hear about your food choices in your diet. They want to hear about your trip. So let me ask you 'cause you and I really haven't talked about this much. So you have been at UT you've been at AM the first place. I want to ask you about is Oklahoma state. Mike Gundy has once again gone off the grid to some degree in higher has offense coordinator who like with the last higher. He made was from a small school in Pennsylvania. You went to an Ivy league school this time. So tell me about the new for the Cowboys. Yeah. I got to have lunch with Leeson. Who is the new oh, see their young guy who not just not just him? And his anyone in his family has never lived. This far west they're all jersey, New Jersey, east coast guys he went to school Williams. Mike Gundy, though, says it's not quite every wants to make that comparison his predecessor Gandhi. Like, literally googled, you know, he's this guy was producing championship. Back-to-back Ivy league championships big offenses at Princeton prolific quarterback. So he was on people's radar. In fact, he's only called him. He was about to either had or is about the interview cliff Kingsbury for the cardinals. So he was on people's radar, but he's just not on our radar. I didn't know anything about him. So now one thing about Oklahoma state is it's not a situation where he hires no see to come in and install his own offense. He's going to run on these offense. That has been so prolific over the last decade or so, but try to put his own stamp on it, obviously teaching the quarterback as part of that. So I'm interested to see it once again they've got weapons on offense. Like, they always do. New defensively, though, they replace a lot. You know? I think I met with Jim Knowles their DC. I think that's gotta be one of the most thankless jobs in college football, frankly to be the seat, Oklahoma state. They're never going on defense. They may have their moments. But it's forever reason they've always struggled to. But that's basically the whole big twelve Stu. I mean for the most part, I mean TCU's obviously been able to feel good defenses. And they've had a couple of years where they maybe they gave up yards, but they created turnovers had good red zone defense. But they're never you. Just never you. Never see Oklahoma state ranked highly on defense. Yeah. I'm just thinking of like, you're in that state and Oklahoma where I was Mike Seuss no longer is the DC announce grinches taken over, but you had Brent Venables who was there and now run battles or the toast of college football for what he's done with the Clemson defense. You know, you've seen other guys go into that conference..

"Welcome to the audible. I'm Stewart Mandel joined as always by Bruce Feldman, Bruce, by the way, belated happy birthday. It was last week. Thank you. I appreciate you. You thinking it'd be. I'll be a few weekly wars only a day late on the actual acknowledgment of, but yes, a week laid on the podcast. Thank you. So Stu, I actually got to see quite a bit of the Red River showdown as quite the surrender. Anything surprise you about what happened in Dallas this weekend game of the year in college football so far when he said, yeah. I mean, I feel like last week's Penn State Ohio State game was quite a thriller, but what's fascinating to me here is then I say this with just having seen Texas up close in their only loss against Maryland and then against TCU they're growing up fast. And I go back to what Tom Herman said after they lost to Maryland, the wear and a lot of people were dismissive with this when he said this. Is different than it was last, your lost Maryland. And I still think they're they're a bit away from being a legit, playoff contender meeting meaning team that could get the playoff in actually win a game or more. What I think where I think they're lacking still is I don't think they have real difference makers in the d. line. At this point, they have some good players, but I just don't think they have what some of those other playoff teams have you're gonna have. But Sam etlinger is playing really well. They have good receivers, and their is really good. That's a really explosive offense. They went up against the when in toe to toe and you know it was a great. It was. It was a fun college football game, a great atmosphere. And that was my biggest takeaway. He listen, don't don't read on their three start dismissing all the reason, all the thing reasons why they would we're not there yet. That wasn't the goal. I think that after the Maryland game, you know, there are people saying, okay, it's going to be same old. You know, another seven and six. Season for Texas in at this point, you know, they are as legit a contender to win that conferences as anybody else. I think what stood out from that game, the most is in this was just so significant happier. Texas's offensive line has been so bad for so long until Connor Williams. They had not placed a offense Lyman in the draft in years, and they control the line of scrimmage, and maybe that's a bit of an indictment on Oklahoma who as we should note fired, Mike stoops on Sunday, we'll get into that a minute. But yeah, it seems like our buddy her hand who we both known for a long time and is that many stops and is now Texas has got that unit playing well, you see etlinger having time to make those throws got those big receivers. So you give him time to throw and you get into those big receivers, you know, you're going to have masher prostate exploit. So it's not the same old, seven, six kind of team. Now when people say Texas back, it depends on what your definition of back is. I mean, for me, it would be getting to level they were for most of the previous decade under Mack Brown, or they're always a national contender. We're not gonna go there yet. I don't know if the team's gonna end up going nine and three or win. The big twelve will see, but you know, for the first time in a long time, I really do feel confident about the direction of that program. Yeah, I'm with you and I love what you said. I agree with. I certainly think herbison a really good job there. They were missing their, the lead, early offense of lines act shop over at the beginning of the yours, but I'll Cal Anderson the grad transfer stepped in really icy for them at tackle, and they've out some young player or is in there. And I think it should be noted because this is a little bit, you know, you look at why USC has tailed off. They've had big offense align issues, and they've had a lot of shuffling from one offense, line coach to another..

"Welcome to the audible. I'm Stewart Mandel joined as always by Bruce Feldman, though at a very late hour. In fact, you're on central time. So it's actually the next day there. We intentionally held off reporting this week's episode because we knew Ohio state's decision on urban Meyer becoming down sometime middle of the week, and it did on Wednesday, but not before a roughly twelve. Our board of trustees meeting with house as board with the president. With the investigators, I believe it was around nine pm eastern that they finally came out and announced a three game suspension for reminder. You'll miss the first gives the season though he will be back at practice after the first game. Gene Smith. The AD also suspended for seventeen days. Now I wanted just note here could talk about this how this kind of on folded, but they put out a very brief summation of their report rape before the press conference. That said, basically. This investigation in regards that two thousand fifteen incident was ax. Myth found that basically the kind of excused urban Meyer and Jane Smith that they, they were supposed to reported that to two states compliance office. Although as the police that actually contacted them, they failed to do so, but they chalked that up more as a misunderstanding of their reporting protocols. You'd have to actually have an arrest or court appearance or anything to trigger your reporting obligations. So they kind of gave him a pass on that one. They were a little more critical about the fact that he allowed that. They allow Zach Smith stay on the staff as long as they did, and I've been critical of that as well, but there's even more stuff we already knew about the two thousand nine domestic violence arrests, the two thousand fifteen domestic violence investigation. It came out recently that he had a two thousand thirteen DUI. Although this report says are reminded no about that. There's more misconduct described in here. A six hundred dollar Bill at a strip club are recruiting visits are on a recruiting trip, pick. Period where he stopped restarted showing up late to practices and meetings. Obviously, Brevard Murphy report last week. He slept with a secretary, the football anyway, he's a bad dude..
