Trump pressures Georgia top election official to 'find' votes and overturn Biden victory in phone call
"Start then with the Washington Post newspaper because they have made public a recorded telephone conversation in which President Trump is heard putting pressure on Georgia's top election official to overturn his defeat in the state. President elect Joe Biden won the state 11,779 votes. Now, in the hour long call between Mr Trump on Brad Raffles Burger, Georgia's secretary of state, Mr Trump made a number of unsubstantiated claims of vote rigging. I mean, they noticed him to find the one extra vote that would give him a victory. Well, I want to do is this I just wanna find 11,780. Votes, which is one more that we have. Because we want to say so. So tell me. Red. What are we going to do? We won the election and it's not fair to take it away from us like this. On. It's going to be very costly in many ways. Well. The conversation on Saturday was seen as the latest step in an unprecedented effort by a sitting president to pressurize a state official traverse the outcome off an election. As I said it was The Washington Post that got hold of the recording, and I've been speaking to Mark Vicious Sr Editor of the newspaper. His extraordinary in that a sitting president of the United States is putting pressure on state officials to as he puts it, re calculate the vote find him enough votes to win an election that he lost at the same time. It is entirely predictable and very much in concert with the way Donald Trump has behaved throughout his life. When things do not go his way, he will do anything to avoid being tagged as a loser. It's a long conversation he's having with Fellow Republican Brad Reference Burger, the Georgia secretary of state, talk us through what he says how he appeals to him and what he's asking him to do. He pushes him more or less the way we might expect a mob boss to push his underlings in a Hollywood movie about Organized crime. And he's asking the chief elections official in that state to negate the voice of the people who voted there and come up with new numbers based on a bunch of species conspiracy theories, Trump repeatedly and almost in coherently spelled out that votes had been destroyed or elections machines had been stolen or destroyed. And the Georgia official the secretary of state wrappings Burger, who his Himself a Republican, pushed back at every turn and said, No, Mr President, This is not true. This did not happen and what he's asking. Find him, 11,000 or so. Votes. Now that demand in itself is that illegal? Well, it's certainly illegal to tamper with the results of an election. And he's asking for exactly that. Is the president on the phone call committing a crime by making the ask. That's certainly for lawyers or eventually, a court to say. But there any number of voices in both parties who are now saying that president has committed acts here that are worth investigating, and perhaps worth bringing criminal charges. Highly unlikely that that would happen, But nonetheless, there's a great deal of upset. We're seeing an enormous amounts of attention paid to this story. And this is a president issuing threats I know from having written his biography that back when he was a businessman, he routinely made these kinds of threats that he would bring lawsuits against intense people that he would bring them up on criminal charges that he would make their lives difficult or impossible. So this is his pattern, but to hear it on tape from sitting president His number less shocking. I'm here. He has a couple more weeks in office. It looks as though on the basis of this recorded conversation. He isn't going to leave office quietly. Well, we don't know whether he will actually relieve the White House on January 20th, as the law requires him to do. He has always said that he will certainly leave if he loses. But of course, he's not admitting that he's lost if you look at these pattern in life When he does lose in a big way. He tends to slink away steaming and foaming and fulminating. And just as we watched over these last couple of months, so he will go down fighting. He always does. But when push comes to shove, he tends to just go away. Now this is a historic moment. Whether he will have to be asked to leave. The building will simply have to wait and see. Mark Fisher, the senior editor of the Washington Post. And just to let you know that since the third of November vote, of course, Mr Trump has been alleging widespread electoral fraud without providing any evidence. 50 states. All of them have now satisfied the election results. Some of the recounts and legal appeals, and so far the U. S courts have rejected 60 challenges to Mr Joe Biden's win and Congress is due to formally approve the election result. In just two days time.

"Ball parks or even drive in movie theaters Americans are making it clear they won't be ready to go out to their favorite destinations until they feel confident about being able to go to the bathroom it's a story by mark Fisher senior editor at The Washington Post mark what are you hearing even as governments are saying it's okay to come back in the water there a lot of people who are hesitant and one of the reasons they're hesitant is when you go out of your home you are inevitably after some hours going to have to use somebody else's facilities and be in a public bathrooms with other people and for a lot of people that gives them a little bit of the heebie jeebies at this point because they had such close quarters so tightly cramped there's all sorts of aerosol stuff in the air in those rooms help often are they clean who's doing the cleaning all these questions arise that make people nervous and that it's really kind of an interesting insight into just how anxious people are and we're seeing this in every situation from workplaces to shops to potentially movie theaters and sports venues down the road so it's really good initially that business owners are finding they have to do something about these public restrooms are and they've always been the source of EC rightists it in some way shape or form which is why their signs everywhere Beano employees must wash hands before returning to work how come old all of us and we're concerned about this particular germ well it this term as we know is highly contagious and it's you know you can take all kinds of precautions when you're in a shop in a public place whether it's masks we're keeping some social distance but those precautions become almost impossible in the bathroom because they tend to be so tight boasts the most landlords don't devote a lot of space two bathrooms on like perhaps in other countries and so we've never put a premium on on the bathroom cleanliness just think about your local gas station and at so it it is something that makes people nervous and so there are some physical fixes that people can do some of them are very expensive in terms of removing some of the hardware creating more social justice more space in bathrooms and some of them are just a question of policy and so you see that some of the restaurants and bars that are beginning to open up in some states are hiring bathroom monitors to stand outside and make sure that only one person goes in at a time we're only a couple of folks so we'll see got kind of behavioral changes that people are going to be asked to make to make it feel safer yeah you know you've you've made a good point the story that's okay terrific you want to remove a urinal or make the stalls more spacious serve have more space between them that's fine however that means more people can't be in the bathroom at the same time in there for a line begins to Q. that's exactly right it's weird kind of a catch twenty two and so you get people saying well I'm willing to go this amount away from my home but I need to get back home and one of the reasons they're saying that is the need to get back home to do the business and so it really is I think psychologically it's a bridge that a lot of people don't want to talk about because we're comfortable talking about these things but it is holding them back from certain kinds of behavior we didn't see it in big wide open spaces drive in movie theaters before the re opening they're having to figure out how many people can queue up for the bathroom and we're we're going to put those people and the people are hiring extra staff to have a very obvious presence of people clean at all times that's just kind of a psychological bomb if you will but it's helpful because people are anxious to speak with mark Fisher senior editor at The Washington Post is pieces called why public bathrooms are a stumbling block for re opening the reference to that to at least some businesses are considering like the these no door entries that you might see in what an airport right yeah yeah those kind of S. shaped entrance where you would wind your way in because people don't want to touch those public doors they don't want to touch surfaces that other people have touched particularly when their hands are pressed wet and just cleaned so there we're seeing that people are removing some of the doors when that's feasible were public bathrooms and they're also as you said there you go eliminating some of the urinals and stalls if you're seeing that some sinks are being taped off to create that distancing but there are there are some very expensive ways of fixing this that involve wholesale renovation and their companies out there that are being swamped with requests from business owners to do that but I think more commonly you're going to see these very quick fixes of taping office certain areas and putting those lines down on the floor street so that people know to keep that far apart from each other well you know all the all the sudden these these energy efficient super powerful hand dryers that don't require a wasteful paper towels are are on the outs because they can blow stuff around is that the thinking those are perfect germ spreaders and there were people who shied away from them even before the virus came along but now you're seeing a whole cell movement away from them

And so ultimately, that's what happened in reset. Okay. We have a real opportunity here. Let's let's let's do this. Why I mean, it sounds like a perfect fit a great opportunity, and you know, from your tracker him. I'm sure you're gonna crush it would that. I can't wait to see what you guys put together in what you know, what comes of all this. I appreciate that. Kevin. And I have to say if you know, the days were feels like it's a crazy idea. And I know you've personally experienced a lot we could talk about that all day. I will definitely take that kindness in the confidence that others haven't me at. Not to sound cheesy. But try to wear that on my heart on the days where I'm feeling a little bit down in the I know there's a lot of struggle to come. I know what it's like to build a business. And I know what it's like to be on the ground floor of something where you're not really promised anything on the front end or the back end, and you really have to put in the work to to survive into make something out of it. So I really appreciate that now. And I think this is maybe we won't go to to deep into this. But it is. I got the question a lot when I left boils in the CFS's stuff and all that. And like, why would you ever I would you ever want to leave? And I think from just hearing what you were talking about saying go like no matter how great a situation is. Sometimes you're like, you just get your driven to do something new you want to do something different. And you know, again, sometimes that could almost mean more than anything else just wanting to wanting to build something new again. Yeah. Kevin. And you're exactly right.

And by the way, if anybody's out there listening they're looking for a couple of new coach. So if anybody hears that, please marks probably said that on a recent episode with you, but this is a great place to work, and I am to the end of my life. Proud of every moment that I've spent here and gave this place, my soul. But I I turned forty this year. I had a child this year bought a house this year.

I'm committing and I love the fitness industry. But I'm gonna I'm gonna commit to the fitness industry in my job up forever. Which would be totally great choice. But I was feeling something burning on the inside. That was saying do there's something else in there. There's something else. You wanna do? We've already been you know, kind of not necessarily building towards us, but you have been working with Michael Wittig on doing life coaching stuff. Like that like putting together a great groups of people to help people get to where they wanna go. So I mean, this stat seems to Abend something that is also been really really important to you.

"Life of your. Dreams. And so often when people decide this industry is in for them. Which by the way is completely valid thing. We're in a really beautiful, I think moment in many ways in life in that people have these hyphen careers. You can do different things go in different industries. But if we're looking for someone that really wants to make it in the fitness industry and create a lifestyle for themselves that allows us to be very sustainable thing with legs. I think it starts with getting clear around. What does that look like for you? And then working back from there to make plans because I think the other piece of this I would share in related to creating vision. And this is so John inspired is how do you take those goals? How do you take that vision? And then figure out what you need to become world class at and then turn that into game of skill acquisition. How do you take that dream? Team in those visions decide what you need to become world class at and then put that into a virtually daily practiced actions to acquire the skills, you need to become the person you need to become to have that life because it's certainly been something. I think I I really benefit from personally, I've tried to pay for is the value of education one other sub tip. I will give from that. Because I think in some ways I'm doing culpa Petur about this. These days a lot of people. No, I do read audiobook insane amount of books, and that works awesome. For me. I don't know that that works. Awesome for everyone. I think the education piece is likely non-negotiable. I think finding ways devolve yourself is important, but I want to be clear that I feel very lucky that for me. I was able to read tons of books for whatever reason for my brain that's been very effective. But for a lot of people they. Will need to find other forms of education might not just be books. Some people weren't veteran person some people learn better with coaches, some people learn better taking courses they're all sorts of ways that one can learn I think learning about yourself and getting an asking yourself questions like at what point in my career was learning the most or what was the most valuable education can all project or experience of my life to date, and then using that knowledge information to make good choices about what forms of education you pursue. I'm not knocking reading I think everyone should read some. But ultimately if you're looking for skill acquisition on the route to that goal. There needs to be some acknowledgment of how the individual learns best, and it's not always going to be the way you see ones mentors doing it. Where can people learn more about Mark Fisher?

"I still get I'm kind of like a I guess entered in that sense. I still think that won't be useful. Because for me, I see that transcends providence finis industry that starts to speak to my values about how humans ideally can most elegantly serve each other and live in community, which is challenging at best. But yeah, I think certainly if you're looking at general fitness population. I probably would be willing to down that hill and say that yes, I agree with that. Now that you're doing. Of business consulting business for you to Koren's is growing exponentially right now. I'm curious. What who who do you most want to help right now? You know, what is what has been driving you where where do you wanna make the most impact in the industry at this point in your in your life and your crew he had this point? And that I feel very. Clear on articulate, I probably should have articulated by now, but that particular because you know, it's interesting to zoom out one thing I'll save quickly. It's inching up is for unicorns. As you've seen as we certainly worked a lot of people in the fitness industry. But we're doing a lot of things outside of the Finnish industry as well. Broadening everything from organizational culture to consulting with healthcare companies in building out a user experience model in systems. So we're doing a lot of stuff when I think specifically about the fitness industry for me, the people that I just light on fire to work with our these and again, forgive me in such a corny Bernie men term. But I'd on the better run forward, quote, unquote, heart centered a sorry coining term heart center trainers there in this industry for the right reasons, and that they're willing to work hard. And they both loved the thinnest piece that actually is an important thing to me the very serious about training because I do think that is a matter of professional integrity. That the very serious about that piece, but that foreign away their mission is really creating spaces to really serve people and really make impact in their community through fitness. And we know the industry is rife with tons of beautiful human beings that care about people. They care about fitness, but are coming to the business piece sometimes a little bit lately. And you know, there's a lot of people who fall in on various parts of that spectrum from the people bad don't even know yet that they like business that may be hate business to the people that are liking business, and they just need help putting some of the pieces together, I think that's that's what inspires me most because again before two thousand ten I was very anti business. A lot of trainers and a lot of amazing finish professionals, even once unfortunate up facilities think that they hate business. And I understand that they think that they don't like marketing they think that they don't like that stuff. And I just so badly wanted just kind of the way did with fitness for his clients..

"And I think the skills that can make people truly savage excellence at things like program starring and understand bio-mechanics. Sometimes I don't always. But sometimes don't go along with a deep intuitive understanding of what humans need and how to make people feel seen and feel cared for and feel safe. And I think that. One thing. I am proud of. I think Mark Fisher fitness has done pretty well in that like, I think from day one we've been very serious about both of those pieces, in fact, internally this is perhaps embarrassing Salvador. Don't talk about this publicly virtually ever, but we refer always talking about ridiculous humans serious fitness in. You've probably seen that that's our tagline. But internally we always say it's ridiculous humans serious, fitness, infinite heart, and that's the third peg of the stool, we don't talk publicly because frankly, it's precious. It's kind of crying it's kind of harassing for me to even share. But we really think at all times about those those are the three things that make Mark Fisher finished. What it is. We've gotta be great the finish piece. And we've got to be great at the heart piece. And we've got to be something slay the excuse something off, right? Some sort of a touch of madness that disrupts people's patterns and leaves them joyful and confused in shock. Are as to the question. What could the industry be doing better in creating community? Again is another one. I'm sorry qualifying this. I don't know that I'm really qualified to answer. But if it were anything. It would probably be really taking the work seriously and really starting with ourselves and doing our very best to work to become the type of person that other people want to follow, and that's very John Maxwell, the end, but I I happen to think it's true. And as it when you have a sillier, even if you're a coach to some extent on the one hand, you're you're a servant bureau. Also leader, you're being a servant leader. Your goal is to serve people and people want to follow someone that they align with and that they believe in and that they trust. And it is a truism that you can be an amazing human being in still be a pretty crappy leader, but it's very hard to be an amazing leader. If you're a crappy hinman now again, I also want to concede that's a giant rabbit hole. What does it mean to be a good human, no doubt that becomes a conversation about values? But this is a weird sort of answer I'm getting to here. But as I'm thinking. A lot on this. I guess it would be really doing the hard work developing yourself as a person working on your own humility, consistently working on how you can be a better version of yourself working on your own emotional management. So that every time you show up you have taken done, whatever you need to master self in that moment and come from a place of love and service gratitude and do so in a genuine way too because that can sound fake. And it's I think Ray customer service is choice. But but I don't think it's fake. I think that there isn't a Bill you can develop over time to get that mind. Right. And the side I'm putting on my service hat and my focus right now is to serve others. I think frankly, the all of us is industry can relate to on the say it is transformative for us as it is for the clients. I'm sure everyone listened to this. It's inefficient industry can think of a moment in their life. When they were non a good place. And maybe something was going on that was real personal trial for them, and they just got their mind. Right. And they got into. At session or that class that personal training session, and they just focus on serving someone else. And then after it was over there burns had been lifted. And to me that is the thing. I think I find. So endlessly interesting about service is the way it transforms the server as well as the served. I wonder if that's a good witness test. If you're in this industry for the right reason or not. Yeah. I mean, certainly I would say based on I'd say based on my particular value systems. Those are things I think are important and meaningful. You know? And again, I've got a wide net here. I think there's different you know, in the Finnish history's very large..

It is a different type of relationship you have with the people you're serving when they're in audience the condensate for three hours. Maybe they get the thank you afterwards. Which is lovely beautiful verse the types of relationships, you you create when you're working with a client or in our case a ninja on a regular basis. And slowly the see the way they show up differently. You get to hear the stories about how your were is impacting their confidence in their lives. And that is the greatest type of high. Now, what were some of those initial books that Mike boy was recommending are just the ones that you are picking up that that influenced you the most of the start? When I think back to the first year, the ones that come to mind, are certainly. I guess the training books. I had started reading being. Probably before this all began. But essentially made it a point to literally just read every book about training, I could find because it's interesting to this day unless you start getting very deep into the hard hard stuff in hardcore sports performance enhancement, some which have gone into. But I've not always found as applicable to what we do the general population. So I definitely went through all the books he recommend. That's that. You know? It's the books. Everybody knows Ray everything from never let go to Vance's in functional training to movement starting strength, a bigger faster better. I always forget what the name of the version what the name of the classic collegiate strength conditioning. I read the text this method. I mean, I I want demand. I went I went to everything went all all the way right up to that Stewart ski, and that is the point where I started to be like, okay. This is not quite as applicable plenty more to MRs Rossini, who's just getting by learn how to bad left from a business and personal vomit perspective. Again, I went right down his list. The ones that I remember that come to mind are Brian Tracy's goals. Trace Jason freeze rework. I know in that first year, I read I don't know if this was Mike recommendation in but delivering happiness, I read the John Maxwell books. I read had win friends read good great. I read Gary banner, Chuck's crush it. Those are some of the ones that come to mind is influential from that first year, and it's interesting because e meth, obviously at this point a lot of those books, I've revisited, and that's something that I continued find more and more satisfying is revisiting. Any book? I love I will tend to read or audio book you over and over. So there are a number books at this point. They're now like the five read club, very exclusive Mark, Fisher, exclusive territory, your fear in the fiber club your special book. But a lot of those books from that first year. It's so satisfying interesting to go back I can read those books because I often have to I concede. I often forget how influential they were. And sometimes, you know, I feel like things are so obvious to me certain philosophies of business how a business should be run. My thoughts on culture seem as if these are things that are intuitive to me when in fact, that's not necessarily at all. It's that I read these books before where I was really even thinking about these things, and I never even knew of a world right in thinks strongly about business culture. I had never even dreamed of a business before I read chip Conley's peak. Or tribal leadership or all these books that really set my mind around what progressive business can be what business.

"But there's a particular setup that was me in like short shorts. And these four aerobics girls around me doing jump kicks and romance novel. Pose is and there was something about that making fun of that cultural icon, the myth of the fitness grew person that I really liked playing with many anyways, that's how M F F began. But at the time, I didn't think it was going to be a physical facility. In fact, quite literally I can remember as late as June of two thousand eleven perform better, I did not want a physical facility. It's funny. I ran to a friend of mine perform better this past weekend in Orlando jet Wilbur, who I remember I hung out with at that perform better. And this was an I still didn't really know anybody industry and randomly Jared, and our other friend Steve were just friendly to me. Okay. You've seen like nerdy guy. Come hang out with us get lunch, and we hung out the whole weekend. I remember just being like, you guys have brick and mortar. What is wrong that sounds terrible? Now at that time. I was already starting to ask them about receivables bases in mind body online, and I was already getting a little bit more sophisticated as owner operator. But at that time, I really wanted true lifestyle business because I knew that I could scale the snatches six weeks program, I really saw path to growing that into modest but pretty successful lifestyle business, but it would have been a very different world. It would have been one that was built on me and nodded negative way. But definitely would have been quote unquote, trading hours for dollars. And then I all to Michael when he came into picture. He was the one that I was jokingly loving say manipulated me over several conversations into starting a business because I remember the first time, he even broach the subject with me. I was like, nah. He was like how are you going to scale this?.

"That advertise advertisements that you add. But was it was there like the commercial was there a wizar- an audition that you went to and be like, okay, didn't get this one. You know, what this is just not working out the way that I wanted to you know, it's it's time to make a change. I can't say there was really an audition that went sideways for me. I was during the final couple years of acting was really starting to feel a lot of internal tension where the thing I was cognizant of it was less so much. I was going in additions in them not going well more. It was I was going in for additions them going well on on care that much I cared, and I'm very conscientious. So part of why I think I stuck around long as I did which I feel great about was because I very conscientious, and I felt like I had made a commitment to my agents. I had made a commitment to my career, and I had made a commitment to my college in my various mentors both in college, and in the professional world, the various people that looked upon me and told me that I had a unique talent, and we're supportive of me in support of my career in working from me to succeed. And I think part of that debt. I think inspired me to stick around probably a little bit longer than was one hundred percent idea. But it was one of those things in this. You know, Dan, John, right? So at this point, clearly, I was completely just mind washing myself in industry, it was one of those moments where are your behaviors mashing up with your goals are your behaviors matching up your goals. If again, I was willing to do it like I had a very specific system for auditions how I would work on the material I would never fell on my system because I was never gonna go in and not be prepared. I wasn't gonna do that to myself. And I certainly wasn't gonna let down my agents or the people that were working getting the rooms he's opportunities, but my heart just wasn't really in it the way my heart was in reading about fitness, and then very shortly thereafter entrepreneurship. Eight years ago, two in twenty ten when you started making this transition, you started to you know, like you're saying you're reading and watching all my boils stuff, you're reading two books a week. Were you already starting to have the vision of what evolved into Mark Fisher, fitness in what you guys are built up their New York. I was having the innings. It was very different. But it there was a distinct moment where I made the decision. Okay. I'm gonna try this thing. And it's interesting because the brand has changed even since actual NFL happened, but pre MFA M F F, I can say that as a thing really in many ways began in the fall of two thousand ten so again now, I'm like six weeks into my experiment. I think I just started the Mark Fisher, fitness training and consultations newsletter. And I wanted to get some pictures made. And I went to to dear dear friends of mine who are head shopper Tigers in city who also from Broadway were all to wind up getting more into editorial work, and they are this interesting, hip edgy, Brooklyn, guys. Really cool. I and I knew they knew. How to do some things? I did not do it may be great to collaborate with. So at that time, I was playing with his concept of Katori, fitness in retrospect, I think I was pretty influenced by a lot of David Barton's more outlandish advertising. I just knew that I want to take it to place that was so far that it was high-concept and kind of sexy, but also ridiculous insane. And at the same time, wink, wink, self reverential and having a laugh at how over the top it was, and I think oftentimes it's so funny because people will usually I think use this one people usually Google image search for Marcus, your fitness, and somehow I don't know how on the interwebs there is in unreal touched version of some of these photos, and it often as used, and I'm always cringe a little bit because you can see actually the camera, and you can see the the backdrop in the shot because it's an unwritten touched one the God online somehow, and even that I think actually kind of fine because I seem it's looks like it's being done purposely..

"I guess today's Mark Fisher, you probably know from Mark Fisher, fitness, of course, in New York City. They have to locations and we've had him on a bunch in the past. But I wanted to take this opportunity to take a step back talk about his journey into the fitness industry. Y you know, he thinks it is is such an important profession in more. He sees the industry going forward some really important and fantastic insight from Mark in this interview. I hope you enjoy it. Let's get to it right now. So let's let's start all the way back at the the beginning because I know a little bit about your background. Of course. I mean before you got into the personal training gym business. You were acting right? Yeah. I was I was a professional actor for years while I did training on the side quite seriously. Unlike then this is not a knock observation quite often. You see people that are trainers. They're like. Trying to act or you see like actors at like kind of do the side thing. And I was quite serious about both them, which that this my life. Now turns out was actually very useful. Very interesting and bizarre skill sets together. So what was what was the was there an event or was it just a slow kind of gradual transition that brought you from from acting to me, you know, maybe I could coach and train folks like myself that are in the New York area like acting. Yeah. I think it was a gradual transition. I mean, I think like any actor like most actors of Midland success. There was a very much a love hate relationship with the injuries much as I loved acting. I love the theory. It's tough to make very consistent living in it. And even when you do they're just a lot of things that are not in your hands end one probably defining characteristic of people that are entrepreneurs there. You're a little bit of a control freak you on a little bit more control of being I hope I got the job. So I think as I got older some of my priorities. Also started chain somethings. I wanted from my life start change. I also think I generally fell in love with training more and more every month went by. I was such a continue education junkie though. So so passionate about it. And Furthermore for better for worse on the one hand, I had this interest in training where it seemed there was such an obvious cause and effect and obvious return on investment of time and energy into education and fear. It it just not that linear. You can take all the classes you want. But there it just a very competitive industry. And there's a lot of other pieces at play. And particularly I think as I started to study entrepreneurship in many ways that was where the thing is. Switched. I think I'm very specifically always point to is really August of two thousand ten where two things happen one. I had a huge financial windfall. From a commercial? I did which was at that time life changing and to I started reading books week, and I started with and I'd always been a pretty rigorous reader. But it's so interesting to I'll tell you what having just come from performance Orlando this past weekend. I have to say, I sometimes forget how incredibly influential Mike boy was on me. I live just did everything. The guy said I just read everything he's wrote in when every said do I just did. So even when those initial books those initial to books that we've got I was reading I just went through his like you need to read this list of books that were on strength coach dot com. Was there was there an audition that you went to or you said, you got a windfall from from that..

"Welcome back to the forecast. This is Kevin here. And of course, we had a little bit more of a break these last couple of weeks between depths so with Molly and this one with Mark Fisher, which I think you guys are gonna love and actually recorded this awhile ago, like months ago with Mark it is probably probably the best shot that we've had together the guys are really gonna love it. But again, I've tried to take some time off to really re-think what this show is going forward the topics and the conversations that I want to have discussed on here. And I think we are pretty close pretty close to seeing you know, what the next, you know, fifty episodes of the show will be to give you a little bit of a taste of it. Now. You know, I think things have been ramping up to this. The idea that, you know, we need to really do a better job as an industry as educators, as you know, health professionals, whatever you wanna call it because we're still. There's still a lot of room for improvement. Let's put it that way on this. Sometimes might even mean, you know, having folks on the show that that I disagree with and and trying to get a better idea of why they do things are certain way say things as certain way, maybe we can find some some common ground on some stuff, and maybe they can convince me o of some things otherwise. So it will be interesting. But again, I I want to continue to use the show as an education as an outlet to kinda push back on some things and as a way for us to all get better as a as a community as an industry, and that's that's what I've been having to make sure I take a step back think about a little bit more in depth think about again, the conversations that I wanna have the topics. I don't wanna cover and the tone that we should have for that stuff. Again. I think a big part of it is just to make sure we have different conversations. There's fourteen Brazilian podcasts right now in and I want to make sure that we're having, you know, better discussions. You know, a hit I want to just do the same thing as as everyone else's. So thank you for your patience at promises going to be worth it. And in the meantime, here is an awesome interview. With Mark Fisher that no you guys are gonna love I really enjoyed it. So let's get into that right now without any further delay..
