Senate Judiciary Committee Authorizes Subpoenas for Twitter and Facebook CEOs
"The Judiciary Committee actually has subpoenaed the CEOs of Facebook and Twitter. It wants them to come up and testify about allegations that they have suppressed a story about 100. Biden's business dealings with Ukraine. The news comes his Facebook is seeking new ways to monetize It's WhatsApp unit. Scarlet Food. Fu is here with Mohr. So Scarlett how the stocks doing Well, the stocks are down overall and you can see the big tech is really getting hit from all sides earlier this month, it was by the Democratic controlled House Antitrust committee and, of course today from the Republican led Senate Judiciary Committee. And what today's action means is that Lindsey Graham, who's the chairman of this committee, is now clear to move forward with issuing subpoenas to Mark Zuckerberg and to Jack Dorsey and really force them to testify. Over the decisions to limit sharing of New York Post articles about Joe Biden son Hunter Biden. There's been no date set yet, but both are scheduled already to explain their content policies next Wednesday before a different Senate committee. So the backdrop here is that after years of being left alone by Washington, especially in the early days, Big Tech is now constantly looking over his shoulder, and it's stuck in the crosshairs of lawmakers and regulators so no real surprise that it has had to increase its spending on lobbying. Facebook, for instance, spent $16 million in 2019 $10 million so far this year. But all that is kind of a drop in the bucket when you compare it to how much it has in cash. Facebook had $58 billion in cash last fiscal year cash in short term investments. Meantime, you mentioned the other headline. Their Facebook is lining up a potential payout for its WhatsApp unit, the messaging service. Rather than selling ads. Facebook wants to offer its business users a cloud service that allows him to soar and keep their interactions their messages with their customers. This next phase after that, Would include payments to allow customers to buy products directly from businesses on WhatsApp. And really, this is a significant shift for Facebook, which makes almost all its money. They're really targeted niche advertising. That's not to say that it won't pursue that, necessarily. But if looking into different options, and of course, a backdrop for all of this is that social media big technology has done very well during the pandemic. Seemed as kind of utilities more than anything else, although in the lead up to the election, there's a lot of concern over the role that they play in influencing how people think about candidates and how they vote. So Scarlett, and let's be

What happens if online advertising is just a big, fat bubble?
"So. Big Tech monopolies are in the news this week the Department of Justice sued Google over how it maintains its search dominance and it search dominance is the key to its business model, which is that it makes eighty percent of its revenue from digital advertising facebook by the makes ninety, nine percent of its revenue from advertising and the profitability of targeted ads is also a big reason why tech companies are constantly collecting so much data about us and there's a multibillion dollar ad tech industry that exists because all of this makes so much money. But what these ads didn't actually work all that. Well, Tim Wong is a former public policy executive Google where he worked on artificial intelligence and machine learning and he's of the new book subprime attention crisis I. Think this is an interesting important distinction right? which is it's not necessarily to make the argument that advertising never works categorically right? We have examples of it working. The question is whether or not the market as a whole really lives up to the promises that it's made and the promises made is that data driven. Automated form of what's known as programmatic advertising is a kind of advertising that's way better than billboards or magazines or the kind of madman style of advertising and I think ultimately, it may be that we are exactly where we were decades ago. Right? which is we actually don't know which half of the money spent advertising works in which one is wasted. We just very difficult to tell. Is, there an awareness of this? I mean I know that you know after for example, Cambridge Politica, there was a lot of conversation about how there are lots of promises related to micro targeting and that it just might not be. Realistic. Like do advertisers are they starting to understand this? Well, I, think there's a lot of willful blindness in the Advertising Space you know so this book that I just wrote, it opens on a really strange experience that I had going to a marketing conference where a professor laid out all of the evidence right? You know sixty percent of people never see ads ad blocking up all around the world it was just dead space the. Advertisers kind of refuse to engage with it, and you know it's one of the things I've been thinking a lot about because it's similar to patterns that we see and other market bubbles right where there's these deep structural problems with the industry. But a lot of the people involved either don't want to hear it or they don't believe it I mean listen I'm very familiar with the idea of the belief that technology must be working even. All. Evidence to the contrary. But I do want to ask you about targeting specifically because it seems like there's a lot of technical reasons it doesn't work. But what about this idea that there's a massive amount of data collection that ads can be so specific and personalized that you literally cannot resist them are you saying that's also not true Yeah I. Mean You brought up Cambridge Analytical earlier? I mean there's a fascinating report that just came out from the UK privacy regulator that was basically their research to say look there's all of this kind of. Metric advertising does it make a difference and the conclusion? There was no there actually was not any significant difference and there's two reasons for that. One of them is a lot of researchers find that a lot of the data being used as faulty and messy and doesn't work and I think the other one is whether or not. This data actually helps you to target a message better is really unclear. There's a great researcher by the name of Allesandro. Who's been doing some work on if you have targeted ads versus non targeted ads, does it actually make a difference and conclusion is it does but really only by a small margin, much less than you think. Could it also expose the fact that a lot of these companies no longer want the data for advertising like they want it for machine learning. Yeah I. think that's ultimately you know I think one of the great questions and responses I've had to the book is people say so why have we built this enormous surveillance infrastructure? This thing just doesn't work I. Think people have traditionally thought. Oh, well, it's because Mark Zuckerberg wants to build a mind control ray that's his advertising system. You know the reality is that it has been collected for other reasons and for sure I think things like the promise of machine learning is is one of the reasons that people collect this data. What Can. Be Done. Do you think I mean? This is a big complicated technology question. You've got companies spending a ton of money and companies that rely on this for their whole business model. Like what could solutions even look like? One of my worries about this is that again, if you study the history of market bubbles, a lot of what we see is very reminiscent right to the say the subprime mortgage crisis of two, thousand, seven, two, thousand, eight, and there is a momentum here in the problem with bubbles is that. While, it may look great in two, thousand, seven, I think we were saying how great economy is doing. At some point they pop and I think the human costs will be great. It's really not just a matter of whether or not you know Mark Zuckerberg has less. Fewer billion dollars right I think you gotta think about all the media that's relying on this ecosystem that journalism that relies on it and many other places that advertising touches online, and so I I tend to believe in the idea that we have to find ways of deflating this bubble and so I'm really interested in kind of the ability to both spread the public word about some of the problems in this marketplace. But also I think there's room for regulation I. think There's room to enforce transparency in the marketplace to try to make sure that you know expectations about this match up with reality. There's been just as a regulatory matter there been a lot of questions about banning targeted advertising. Should that happen? Yeah I I do think. So and I think in some ways you know in may be the thing that pops the bubble right because for the longest time, advertisers have been basically holding to the position that we need all this data order to do our business to target our ads and what we're seeing as things. GDP are the European privacy law and CPA to California privacy law rollout is in many cases the market just keep chugging along even though our advertisers have a lot less access to data and I do think that that kind of realization that all this data might actually not have been very. Meaningful might actually 'cause you know sort of expectations or perceptions about how great this stuff is to kind of crash to Earth, and so you think these privacy laws have these two effects. One of them is to protect privacy, which of course is important but I think the other side of it is actually in May of like you know strip the veil off this market that I think has been kinda shrouded for so long Tim. Wong is the author of the new book subprime attention crisis. How big a bubble are we talking here? Digital advertisers will spend over one hundred and forty billion dollars in the US in twenty twenty.

Q&A with Senate hopeful Daniel Gade
"Weeks away. But nearly 38 million voters have already cast their ballots. That includes roughly 1.5 million voters in Virginia, where incumbent Democratic Senator Mark Warner is facing off against Republican challenger Daniel Gate. In a state that's become increasingly blew some of called Gates Campaign a longshot recent polling shows Warner up by almost 16 point. We've had Senator Warner on the show twice this year, but we haven't heard from his opponent yet. And that changes today. Daniel Gate. Welcome to one, eh? It's a pleasure to be on Earth. You thank you so much. And we should note that Daniel was also a professor at American University, which holds the license for our parent station. W AM. You So you're a military veteran and a disability rights activists running for office for the first time. What made you decide to run? Well, you're right. I'm a military veteran. I spent 25 years in the U. S Army and was wounded in combat twice decorated for valor, gave a leg in combat my hip level amputee and then later went on to get a PhD and a master's degree in public policy working in both the Bush and the Trump administration, so I'm a public policy expert, and I consider this race an extension of my military service, in the sense that I've been under oath to the Constitution my whole life, and this is just more service as someone with a little experience in politics. You've been running in part on the idea that you're Ah Washington. Outsider. Why do you see that as an advantage? Well, it's an advantage because you know, I think Virginians are sick of and nationally you see people sick of career politicians who have done little to solve our problems. I'll give you a couple of examples. When Mark Warner took office in 2008, he pledged 2009. He was elected Noh eight, but he pledged to be a budget hawk and back Then the deficit was $12 trillion, and now it's something like $27 Trillion or the debt rather And on issue after issue. There's a history of broken promises here, and even the Washington Post's no friend of Republicans said that he had quote muddled through his time in the Senate with few signature accomplishments. That's from spring of 2019 so This is who the career politicians are, and people are sick of it. They want career servants, and I'm a career servant of the Constitution. And that's the fundamental difference between us. But Republicans have held a majority in the Senate for some time. So how much of that? Can you lay? At Senator Warren Warner's feet. Will remember at the beginning of his time in the Senate. Back in 09, 10 and 11. The Democrats had a super majority in the Senate, not just a majority, but a super majority and and the White House and for the bulk of his time in the Senate, the White House and the Senate have been Held by Democrats, So it's not. It's true that there has been some fiscal indiscipline by Republicans as well. And I'm not in favor of that, either. What? Explain a little bit one example. What approach which you take to fiscal responsibility if elected. Oh, sure, one thing we need and I know a lot of people talk about this, and then they get to Washington. See and forget about it. D C has proven that we need about balanced Budget amendment and it can have an escape hatch for emergencies with, you know, some kind of three quarters majority in both houses to override for a period of time and You can write it so that it's not a suicide pact. But we absolutely must have that. And that means we need to weigh need to take seriously our obligation to our future generations. And that's something that I care deeply about. Do you think there's a political will for that kind of move? No, there's not on Capitol Hill. Of course, there's not, And the reason there's not is because they all are feeding at the same trough, Republicans and Democrats alike. But there's absolutely political will for it on Main Street, and it's a very populist thing, people. That's what people want. People want Washington to spend within its means, just like every state has to and just like every family has to. So if this is not rocket science, so if you're critiquing both Democrats and Republicans for this issue, how would you shift that dynamic if you're elected? Well, The first thing is that we need to elect Republicans who have a spine and we need Teo and we need to work. Of course we need to work cross, but we also need to tie into our core principles and his Republicans. Far too often, We've abandoned our core principles in favor of short term gain. And so that's you know, that's a broad based critique of my party and of end of, frankly, the other party as well. There hasn't been a Republican elected to statewide office in Virginia for more than 10 years, and some of called your Senate run a serious long shot. What makes you think Virginia could shift red again? Well, a couple of things one is you know, in the last quarter, I actually outraised Mark Warner, which was fantastic. And and what we're seeing at the doors on our phone calls and in our polling is that when independence here about me And my bio just my history of service to the country and my qualifications for the office. The fact that I have a PhD in policy they're coming over 2 to 12 to one and part of that is Mark Warner's failures on you Know, he voted against Cove it really for Virginia families. He voted he put in a budget that defunded the police by $50 million in 2002 as governor. And when people discovered that kind of thing, they're like, Wait a second, he says. He's moderate. But in actuality he's not. And so that kind of betrayal is really digging in and people are sick and tired of it. Well as we speak. There's a debate in Congress

How to deal with the bulbs from canna over the winter
"You open the show about talking about the Kanta plan a little bit and I just got some of those and I really had no experience about how whole winner is does and preparing for the spring planning and then how to manage stuff. So maybe A little bit too that various dirty plan. Now, first of all, there are some little stop growing at three and a half four feet, and there are some go almost eight feet. The the the summer growth is well, pretty tolerant. Most everything that happens then comes this time of year I will generally speaking and there's no real hurry about it but the top of the Cana is very, very tender. It is a semi tropical it is going to be killed. Above ground with the first heavy freeze. Frost may not do it but having freeze now, I don't worry about that because the part and I'm going to protect is well, maybe just a kinship, an inch or two above ground line, and then the great big tutors that are well, I'll call them tubers that are under the ground. I freeze even second, probably will not interfere with the and you WanNa keep so I always allow. The talks to be killed it gives them the last chance to make food and so on, and then all of a sudden freeze kills the top. At that point. They will start to dry. So I aid that a little bit have to be careful with cars and catalytic converters, but I throw a pile about a pile but a pad of newsprint under my car because the. Limited. Space. I then we'll will if possible divide those clumps of roots and tubers or primarily though I would knock off generally possible. But at the same time on, knock off excess soil, then I want that whole mass to dry down but the the underground part itself will have skin over I'll call it something like an onion and that portion seals the rest of the plant that we're going to save soon as those plants have dried down and I can literally knock off the rest of. The soil and can divide them. If I wish at that point, I will take them then and I save old potato sacks that are you know a lot of airflow through them I will sing those with Well, if there I used to have several varieties of Canada, I would mark the bag. So I knew which ones which anymore I have just one group of of an Orangey Red and quite brilliant orangey red. But in any event I will hang the dried root mass. In onions acts or tomato set well, tomato and potato, both all of those things I have nails on the floor Joyce under my family room and I hang each beg. For one nail to the next and the next so that they can hang dr there'd be some air circulating through so that there's very very limited chance of any disease carry over you. You have already dried them so they shouldn't turn mushy from any. Well, let's just say there's not likely be any disease so that I hope takes you on through then the next possibility, they can hang their and I've I've never checked thoroughly, but my crawlspace. Room probably doesn't get below about forty five or fifty. That's just A good or wonderful temperature to keep these dormant and so on. Now, if I WANNA rush the season I can pull down they come out of the bag, but in pots and potting soil, and then start them to grow. So when may fifteenth clears I can go ahead and put a a a growing plant out in the yard in place or I can let them hang or if I have as they have in the past forgotten them, I can still plant them in the ground and with no growth roughly fifteen or a little bit before that because tops won't be up yet and you're just start the plant over again. So I. I have talked to people who can't find enough friends to give. Plants to their the the plant can divide when it's in really good soil it can develop way beyond the meat so you can give away some plants at some point in
How to Give Visitors a Wow! Experience
"Priscilla rice and I'm coming to you from Live Oak recording studio in Berkeley, California, and I'm joined on the phone today by the founder and the chief Visionary officer of BNI. Dr. Ivan misner. Hello, How are you? And where are you this week? I am in addition to many recorded visits all around the world. I am Live this week June for a regional compact. In event, so I'm in Canada this week. That sounds all right. Now also this week I have a guest this is his fifth visit to as a guest to be an iPod cast and his name is Mark Applebaum. Mark has been would be and I for over 15 years. He's been a director consultant for more than five years. He's long and successful chapters in the b&i Utah and North Region Marx married to his amazing life. He says Tiffany for almost twenty years with two children Ryan and Tom Jenna and one of the things that Mark loves to do is to teach chapter members how to give visitors a wow experience. I can't think of anything better than that. Welcome back Mark mm contest. Thank you so much. I've it's great to be back. What's good to have you here? And you want to start by talking about making visitors female wanted so the floors your home. Well, thank you, you know a little background of where my y about this topic came up his growing up. I grew up back east in New York and my dad owned a pet store or at the time when I was growing up and I worked for my dad for many years and my dad was the world to me and he struggled a lot financially. So if a customer ever left his store, but happy it really affects his livelihood. So I was did my best to if a customer wasn't having a positive experience at least have them leads as happy as possible and you know in vni every visitor is not only a potential customer to be an eye, but it's a potential customer for ourselves. It's a their potential referral partners for ourselves more could lead us to potential customers or referral Partners. So how we treat our visitors. It's just imperative. So this podcast, you know, if you're a visitor host. It's not just meant for the visitor house out there. It's really meant for every single member to take on the mindset of a visit. Post because we all play a role in that visitor experience and it's in the future success of our chapter know let me just add one thing to you real quick. I know if you know this, but when I started back we didn't have visitor hosts. One of the things I said was that if you invited a visitor you had to be there host and honestly that didn't work as well. So because not everybody's created equal as a host wage and we did create visitor host. But that was my initial concept with b and I was that everybody had to be a host especially the person that invited them and I love the story to share in in givors gained about the visitor you sent to a chapter who ended up going to a different chapter who's the chapter that actually designed to visit our house program. That's either story. So everyone listening think about the region your chapters in and the amount of chapters you have in your region and just here in the Utah North Region. We have fifty three chapters and just in the Salt Lake area we have over 2,000 chapter wage. So depending on what what a visitor does they really in a twenty-mile radius twenty-minute radius. They have a wide variety of of chapters to choose from. So if you if the for the people if you take a moment and think about your chapter and the culture that it has now imagine for a moment every chapter in your region met at the same time the same day in the same location as all the other chapters sure that's not possible. But imagine it was for a moment. Yeah, I would a visitor choose your chapter over all the other ones and you know, it really comes down to what the poet Maya Angelou says best people will forget what you said people will forget what you did but people will never forget how you made them feel. Yes, what a visitor feel welcomed and important. They're more likely to want more of that and yep. That's why we all play a role in that positive experience. Whether you're the visitor host or not your contribution to your chapter and that in your involvement with how the visitor enters the room and Enterprise is in call and and welcoming them really makes such a difference. So a few examples of ideas that members and chapters can take on that could be very beneficial to them. The first is off when the visitor is already registered in BNI connect. The leadership team will receive an email saying so-and-so is registered to to visit on this particular day. Right? Well, the idea would be that the president of the chapter soon after getting that email sends a personal email to that visitor and also on that email they copy on the email other members in the chapter that are complementary to the visitor and then purpose of all that is 1 to let the visitor know how excited they are to meet them to to give them any instructions. They they may need to you know, show up but yep. To really let the visitor know that these other members could be great power Partners together with that visitor and so a great success story. I'd like to share is about three years ago as a director. One of my roles was placing visitors helping visitors find Chapters and I was working with one professional and his business was custom mens clothing and because of his schedule I took it into three different chapters and the third chapter he went to the president at the time Steve level who's the business attorney in the chapter was phenomenal at doing this and so he sent this personal email to this month custom clothing gentleman, and he see see the financial adviser and the family law attorney on on the email who both of them also replied to the custom clothing gentleman saying Thursday, we looks so we look forward to meeting you we too could use help with their own wardrobe and that visitor ended up visiting and a couple of weeks later. He ended wage. Joining and a couple of weeks later. I called them to say to figure out why he picked that chapter over the other two and in his words. He said that that chapter had an unfair Advantage because without one month then, you know connected to the members before they even met them that he wanted to join a group and three years later. He still a member of the group
An average oak tree can shed 550lbs of leaves
"You told me a statistic. For the show about an oak tree that absolutely astounded me. Well. Yes and I don't know who figured it out if it doesn't surprise me a bit now, there was no definition to this, but it was stated that a great big, old, oak tree. When defoliants, it drops approximately five hundred and fifty pounds of leaves Oh now one no wonder. My back hurts when I write. Exactly right exactly. Right mark and it's one of those things. especially when they think of coke, I like to use oak as a mulching type of leaf because when when they dry and full. They they stay cupped up they stay arched up they don't they don't. Shall I say meltdown like many other tree leaves do and this gives me A. Factor. when I when I put him over a plants roots and so on where the air can move through its slows the freezing and thawing. But at the same time, they don't become a wet mess because well, for example, a wet mess having used leaves under mums can kill them over the course than later because they don't like wet feet anytime of year. So it's just one of those things What do you think a big old oak tree you could stay under no danger but in total, it'll drop five hundred pounds of leaves now. I watched something happened one time that is related to this. starlings landed in great big old tree as it is, and I mean a whole bunch of I was sitting where I was hunting and I sitting very still and I could watch this they all descended on this tree which didn't i. I couldn't see much difference. Then then something spooked them. And they all flew off at one time and and the limbs in that tree raised by A. To twelve inches from from the release of the load, the birds sitting in the tree and. That's that's just the darndest thing. But in this case, it's OK leaves. It is something that an engineer of somebody Maybe they needed to have more to do that day. But at the same time, it's interesting to think that there is that much weight of just leaf in a tree.
Breaking Down the Quarters and Semis for the KR Contenders Playoffs
"Let's dive into our predictions for I guess we'll do predictions and then matches them predictions and matches will go in order here. So first match. We both got right. Yep Yep whoop do. We knew that team B M was not up to the task against Wgn Phoenix, and that's what happened. W just think took the three one against them I. Actually yet the three one which is actually kind of surprising because. Outside of an absolute banger that will talk about a little bit later this was the only other one that didn't go three Oh. Team. VM being able to squeak out that one map made it interesting for all of seven minutes and then. wgn Phoenix was like Nah. We're We're. Shutting you down. Yep and that one map was Lee. Shang where we saw Sung Chan gets some key hacks onto as tax on the. Road at least twice I think. You kinda tried his best to. Negate as tech but as we talk about here in the next couple of matches. Stack is shown to be really solid like you had like I think one match that we watched last week or two weeks ago where I felt when it was from. But like there was some issues dying on Bussan but beyond that, especially in these playoffs matches really leveled up. So that team tried their best to try to counter him and they did on the first map but beyond that w kind of took off and really the only other thing that I noticed outside of that. They were playing real chaotic, not super super structured. Just looked discombobulated, and then you get over to a new business and protect literally holds onto his grab for like foil. Yes and it's like there was there was a bunch of times where he could have used it. Either defensively to save some of his teammates and extend the team fight or initiate with an potentially win team fight and Nope, he just sat on it and then when he did use it, he threw it to lake. Horizon Lunar Colony I think because it just went nowhere got nothing and then they just got absolutely destroyed. Yup Listen to Wayne Gretzky protect you miss one hundred percent of the grabs you don't take so. You just gotTa. Do It man you just got? To. It's also a Hawker reference or an office reference depending on what what realm of the world you're in. The other thing too is like every minute that you're not using a graph building. You're not building graph and like if you hold a grab for like three minutes, you could've used a grab that it was like okay and then had another grab by basically the same time So. Yeah it's it's tough and like if you don't have the opportunity to use a grab at all because they're diva is constantly all over you and you don't have the counterplay or they're playing way to spread, then you probably should go on something else. That's better. Pick anyways and use the grab throwaway goldfish swimming dvr, go switch Sigmar anything else. There there's been a lot of issues that we're seeing a lot of the losing teams. They're. They're just like kind of shooting themselves in the foot with like playing what they should be. On the other side man wgn. Phoenix Lake after watching this match. I got really high on this tangle. Especially, ABC Z. Bag has been. Okay. But Gables specially was. Studer Pitt where you saw pack jump up, get damage onto. The Echo over the ACA was even. On. Haven, yeah then. He drops down back behind the cover again, and then you saw gable see right behind him come up boost up finish off the damage and then go back and then Win So comes up to resum they both dive a again and kill him as well. They open it up with two free kills and literally just roll beyond that. So I think that like one of the things especially it's been the tank line coordination for this team. In another team, we'll talk about later. Like it really sets these teams up apart like with the DP s with the one diver as well with the tanks in the one dive deep. Yes as well like. If, you have three people hive minded together you you will find success in grin contenders. And then another name on wgn that you're going to hear. US Talk. A lot absolute tyrant about is ace. When ace is on? The Sambre. Do builds EMP's insanely quick. But then on a newbies, they push team B.. M. Back to the spawn. And then they're like, you know what we got like a minute and a half left we're just going to go sit in front of the spun. And s just sits behind him and mainly heck's the supports like one clip supports drops an EMP. Like gets half of the team just absolutely bullying the back line of Team B, m on a newness and. Team B. M. had no response to ACE's play when he was running the sombre. and. It's super unfortunate that like he's only played this one pick at least what I've seen so far Inoke s on the hog. So good is unmatched in cream contenders I think I, think he might. Only, backed by MAG. But we'll see about that. Hit like he just every time like he forces other people to not play against him because he will just out a out mechanics them out strategy them and like just knows how to play better gets incredible. Pickoffs especially on Havana you saw him on the hog and Gable soon, the sigma they full hold team b. m., there as well So, like this tank line. Alternating CPAC and iino cast depending on whether or not. They're gonNA play the Winston saw shrine oranges run the Road Hog quite often because I think this was still on the playoff patch or like the wwl. Finals Patch. It'll. It's as strong three players on that team like they. Really. Really benefited from there, strong line here and gables the again like we talked about his diva being incredible signals also incredible as well during the scrappy last minute fights where there was a chance that team b. m. was going to be able to. Squeak out the first point actually cap it. he just stayed alive sustained had some good old good rocks Just good play and I think got like a couple of kills here there's also. You're going to start seeing a couple of these names come up next week when we talk not only about Plants and stuff like that but also on recommended. Pickups for teams in the off season because. Couple of teams might be going full Korean here and. There's a lot of new blood that's rear and to get some Odell time in. So I'm excited to see that I actually can't wait to talk about that team that I think is going full Korean 'cause. It's GONNA be interesting to try to put together. A bunch of players out of Korean contenders to slot into that team or and see how close we can get to actually hitting the. the mark on how many people get pulled from creon contenders.

Oh you know feel like a meal and again really. Eh this rejection doing this said Nossa Paul one out of date a couple of times Sanchez frightened to me still loan not really I just I think he's when we remembered as liberal archie and this and all business so I think he thinks small straitlaced than actually as well but we'll see instrumental to your coming out process says the remember what it was like in the eighties there was Andy Bell the walls boy George on the world's Jimmy Somerville from the Communists and it seemed like they were sort of alone trio were they were out proud gay men very much so very much so it's actually a straight friend of mine in school it we grew up together. Who took me to my <hes> Fest Rague Coach from Wales did it coach trips and and that was in Manchester the Apollo <hes> so he introduced me so that if you like it was when operatic was more who had been nine hundred ninety one so early ninety s so he introduced to them so it's like the music like evident? About how outrageous is you know proper in your face. Uh so you last two weeks at home after telling your dad the anti-family the guy but we would so like upset I guess about Your Dad's reaction the will tell and did you ever gonna live at home again. No one ever embarking thought once ago that Sir I went to live in New York for year with my then boyfriend marks now she puts up she said gear deposit for flat and you can live here and his parents were brilliant is non was great. <hes> Brits very a strange because my mom and dad together all allies quite lucky to have grandparent's together. All the lives see think they'd have a bit more structure in support in me. Really you know I think the issue is the bit you know the black sheep just because of all lows not one little thing you know being gay you know is <hes> can go funny candidate remand especially you know so. Did you dad ever come round. Did you ever accept we've actually talking about doing this. <hes> Moon Moon An- raise your gig at the weekend <hes> I was saying to the the other guy plays cable said you don't want about doing this into still yep. That's come round. Now isn't a gym. I needed that support than I don't need it. Now you know now I've got me degree. I agree with you know and social worker and everyone's saying are well Marx done. Oh yeah yes done well but I wanted that then not now not knowing you know he asked for list of you knew you know people down the pub. Really you know it was all about him really at the time so I said some furnace we'll actually no. I said I'm going to do it and say what happened. You know and willing to do that said no because he's all right now you say is but he's not really because fortieth five years ago it was come into that went through the motions got ready and the news too ill and then he didn't come so I thought he's still not really there and said this term no because I don't care anymore in a way that you know not another don't care about Emma. Loving me's me data thin. I just think he's that's just the way yes. He's quite selfish generally anyway but now I'm grown up now. I'm an adult myself so that's why I wouldn't say in it into because what's it GonNa achieve now well plus you've have gone on us and it's twenty years water under the bridge and you have gone on and forged a career an ally fear self you know outside of wiles and we would you say you're happy. Yes M. P.. Go about once a month so you know I do the right thing and go and see the folks small but my life see now befriends area and when I left home at ninety five I felt like that's when Malaysia begun really so lucky you know that I've got the the friends and the social network around me for did enough then it might have been very different parts of it like Dr Walter came to Manchester unique after from York with mark and things just <hes> went from trump's trump really found your own gay family. Yes yes ma'am gay family a Ya champion for the things were cool with Imam though I guess. When did you have a conversation with your Mama's well yeah? I'm very look in the that's <hes> that's lifting Wales all his life. He met my mom when she was sixteen this ten years between them too so he took to Wales because it was a good place to bring up kids so my grandparents my mom's mom and dad moved from from London moved over to be near them so it's very lucky lke that <hes> I had my mom's side really 'cause my granddad was cool about the Ghaith. He lived in London for God's sakes when he is the only warm including Mama chilly who's actually said when monogamous Diana cancer he was in the kitchen kitchen is the memory move sound the words up and he said in front of my brother and everyone he said you're the only one you know who knows what this is like said Mai Mai Mai he said twelve on your shoulders. You know not tell anyone he could've told someone she that this breast cancer and she could have at a few more years but she waits to rip throat. When didn't tell anyone so I saw is the only person to this day who said out loud and publicly you know not been embarrassed about saying about his grandson? So is the only one have. To nothing so is equating the fact that you lived with a seat crew that was sort of eating you up really fat for a number of years with with his wife was going through yeah yeah and he's the only one avenue including my mother. Actually it's funny isn't it as gay people seem of these these big moments and then now whenever talks about it for the rest of you live no no. I find it really sad. You know like you say that's what bums. This is the gay family really because we've all got that sale to sell you know no no one's worse so bad than the than the other story. I think it's it's funny. I've different people react you know and the people expect to be supportive on always and the ones you think going to be shocked a fine about it. You know my brother's got three nephews. I just hope and I've never again. We'll know it wouldn't mean began really well. Brother Miss sister-in-law by think if you've got kids I'd personally I I wouldn't do that to my own. Child really says craziness. What was it like coming out to siblings then? Did you have to guys. We're process that <hes> yeah when we were going through that coming out thing with the and developing a lot my brother to one side and we in <hes> in a bar and I told him while I was going to do those going right to moment dowden Salome and unleash <hes> and even Easter to me accounts held out so I just wanted somebody on my side before I- leashed on them so yeah I did tell Bertha was the first person I told you about from saying. Don't tell dad how did they react pretty blase which was good you know who told her to do a lot but <hes> but fine about him finally me. It's not really an issue for you. Siblings don't think is because he caught up and your own little world thank you well. It can be evidence. Everyone's got different story of discovered for doing this book okay yeah well. I was lucky then in that respect that he was east cool about certain as say. He's got three kids now when he's totally cool about certain fouts he's he actually says you know. One of them stunned Jones with you. One of them is going to be gear so I'd say that totally totally they will let me sister-in-law's really cool about the thing so yeah and you find any was gay person that you don't just once you end up almost continually newly we had any problems since coming out as an adult. No nothing all people people say you know I've been up in very very lucky no bullying in no mickey-taking but I think again from school when I hit again you know the gay found in almost par the group so I'm a big part that group and I've got you know be I may so don't get any any schiff you lie can even mistreat mates eight. Sometimes it's bouncer. If anyone else called me home or they go out punch him in the face they can call me home. It's fine because it's different relationships in the people yeah okay so if you had an advance to impart to to the people people at the beginning of their journey what you say I'd say do it sooner rather than later <hes> be true to yourself. Don't waste those years you know of. Possibly you know meeting. Some mom don't waste them. You never get in the back again. Don't please of the people and that's where I was doing trying to please. Everyone nop sat the parents. Don't do it. Just be true to yourself if the do take it badly. They'll just get over it will have to you know. It sounds like you regret it not coming out. Some eighteen really yeah I do yeah. I think didn't have such a fantastic time. From when I I did come out you know then maybe at feel different. I don't know but I think you've gotta be ready and yourself. Yeah Yeah I do miss. Those years is actually because you never going to get them back. I was GonNa say sixteen and then I realized because if your age probably was illegal because it was a different age concern for gay man wasn't it was it was <hes> twenty-one. I'm sorry twenty one wasn't it then it went to eighteen and eventually became cool yeah. I know I'm going to Matt Matthew. Kelly was obviously a gay mounted been married of your so it was another way of doing that because he took us all to a gay nightclub in crews and you know I mean it was amazing. Brilliant Bank Accounts Enough Nice things about he was so supposed to everyone offscreen. You know an onscreen amazing guy so matthew helped me the guy as well yeah yeah great guy he with all contestants you know he's just brilliant great things about him. Merely very supportive bloke so.

He grew up in rural wiles and says that pre incident. It was pen pals that helped him discover his sexuality but it was really appearing on T._v.. Stars in there is that lets him coming out on the big scale. Think of always known is about the age twelve thirteen when you're in school and you do Imperio of you went through the motions how to go friend <hes> justify in really and then I didn't do anything about it's all until it was the when when I did start when it was twenty so that was the February of ninety five I met my first partner just by chance in Wales of living in living in Wales lifting parents house so yeah I ah feelings but I've never done anything about it really is that because he was sort of rural community didn't feel like there was anyone to sort of you. Know Approach talked about it with yeah. It was exactly exactly that WHO's very white middle-class little village. She no one bus a day. The nearest town was was wrexham so it was a case of having to buy Gay Times back in them. Does you know going walking past Smith's about five times and pen pals. You know that was the way he used to do it. <hes> back then didn't you in this is the ninety nine hundred as I'm guessing nine hundred eighty early nineties yeah yeah yeah give a major darling. I you still younger than me. I remember the heart but that's interesting isn't it. The many people talk about this but actually how the gay media and particularly the print back in the day was really important for discovering sexuality and becoming part of that community yeah definitely was was all we had back in the day then you cat locks. It was the the way forward you know of Ryan's people trying to get in touch with other people who you felt the same you know I didn't have any of that in Wales and opposite WANNA speak to anyone about it. In case you outed and ridiculed. You want to be part of the pack don't you when you're younger so kept him ahead ahead. Tell us about the pen pals and this is interesting. Yeah I call Appel. Pen Pal was in Manchester and there was an ice breakers group in Chester which I thought Goto am I went to that seventy and went to warm wasn't really really for me and I think again wasn't probably ready in my own ad you know to unleash onto the world but yeah I met a lot friends through the pen pals of things I'm not even into like football. You know the gay Football Sports Network Group Yeah I used to write to WHO <hes> now friend twenty years later still in Cardiff so was still friends now when I've never been into football but it's funny. I'm things bringing together isn't that big gay brought together. We'll we'll yeah exactly yeah yeah so tell us about what it was like them writing someone in Manchester in what compatibly a big city so what saw things were you you writing to this person about just like day-to-day things really mad about experiences you know and he says if you I want to go to a gay club I'll say obviously that's why I was fishing edging towards the end of you know going out with meeting somebody but I didn't want it to be you know going down there. We meet one another. I didn't have to sleep with him. You know to stay as an all this business business so what was very very sheltered. She we say sexually even Mateen's really so. I didn't want anything about to happen. It's all see never even went to Manchester. You never went to a gay ball. All three teenagers edges <hes> no no I went to Cardiff. When I was nineteen? We want one of the pen pal friends from the football group and he put me up. Nothing happened and I didn't want it to either you know from that Phnom you know I knew it was a wanted. It was breaking away. Why why why is it so hard to have that conversation with with people in wells with family with your friends because you don't know anyone else is like you really you know it's always been partner? Designers Aces twelve thirteen. It's always I didn't know what had been different but it's not really been a problem either but also it must have been a problem looking back because you didn't want to unleash to anyone she didn't want to. You didn't know what you were going to be with. You know that's a hell of a secret to hold for over eight years. If you'll look formative years yeah yeah definitely and that's when I think in one thousand nine hundred five when might myself life began when I came out you know those are the most fondest memories in my life is was the nineties you know move moving to Manchester and have a new life and you know okay well. Let's talk through your coming out to experience them because I think it's fair to say it's quite a unique Kwan and there was a T._v.. Program that was instrumental in you coming out yeah yea stars and rise opposite the X. factor of the day the call it now yes so I was working in a residential unit pre social work coming onto my social workers to debate karaoke there. Uh is into Asia. This Gill said you sound like him. So you know why don't you go for an audition wasn't not bothered went for this audition. They asked me for a second audition.

He was nineteen strong enough. You know what's up my own opinion. I said no I'm doing it. I wanted to enjoyed it Muslim. Doing you WANNA be performer. You want a singer enjoy. It was a good way in then in the nineteen minutes to get an agent at work with no money doing your material so it was it was great platform for me. You know it really was source said no way I'm not doing it and then he didn't come to the next recorded so my granddad came my mom yeah that's been decided to go all of it we it in terms of mine and his relationship and obviously see mark at the time my granddad my my mom's dot one came to the show we from London you know that quite cool and everything but obviously I didn't want to tell them either. You know he's one of those things we just saw well.

It was quite acceptable to do that. You know in the seventy s dot O._R._G..

"We sit here right now where if they didn't have a conference championship oklahoma would be safely in this playoff but with tcu being all the way back at number eleven i don't think they're going to get in if they win it so now the big 12 is in a situation where if the wrong team wins this game they're going to get knocked out of the play off because they added this conference championship game it will have the opposite effect of what they land and my extrapoint is kind of flashing back to something similar to this i think you guys are probably seen the sec storied documentary called the play the change college football it was about the first sec championship game where i remember though that i remember the quote from roy kramer the sound bite from kramer the the sec commissioner then who it kind of had this idea let's create this game everybody was excited just like they were in the big twelve last year and let's do this it's going to be awesome and then it just turns out the first year of the sec championship game mm alabama goes undefeated and now they have to play florida in this extra game that they would have never had to play before and roy kramer realizes if alabama loses this game like i'm i'm toast there are probably gonna want to do away with the championship game first first and foremost in the night this is going to be my reputation for the rest of my life has that are ruined crammer yeah exactly in the i will have ruined a chance for one of our teams when a national championship alabama of course ended up making a big play low net game to win uh which was the play that change college football elemental went on to win the national championship that year any way and thus the conference championship game craze caught on but i i i can't help but think of both baubles be in oklahoma president david boren who were doing most of the speaking for the big 12 back when this game was was reinstituted and thinking that they must be kind of along the same lines as roy kramer this week where they're thinking what have i done everyone is going to kill me if oklahoma doesn't win this game and of course that was a perks or expire antonio langham yup.

"Fair enough brad good point let's keep them momentum rolling with this question from coral mella he's at coral underscore mella and notes is jim harbaugh's coaching reputation falling victim to being in the loaded big ten east division simply at the wrong time he probably be regularly getting ten plus wins per season on the other side of the conference so you think harbaugh would be better if you put him in arguably the weakest division in college football threat i i'm with you on that i do i do think a pretty much any coach out there would have a better record if he coached in the in the big ten west i don't buy this excuse with the big ten east because harbaugh is at michigan and you can't say that you know that he inherited a bunch of no talent guys from brady hoke because he just had what like ten of them drafted last spring so he had talon his first two years you would assume from the way he's recruited that he still has good talent now and i can promise you this every year he's been at michigan he has more talon his roster than marked antonio has on his michigan state roster and he's lost to him too at a three years now i'll give you i'll give you how state okay he's now he's he hasn't lost a pen stab leaving only lost a penn state this year but penn state you you look at penn state and yes they have some very good players but they also have some holes you know they're not completely back to being.

"That the next guy the tennessee whoever that poor solas it'll be jennifer on it'll be jeff brohm you're you're not going to strike out that many times i mean chris load reported that they were talking enough that they were interviewing and i think that utah is going to get brom brom gore said the one year at purdue uh i think that that is a okay higher for tennessee fan base there they will be you know not now necessarily evidently we gotta check with fan bases on who and athletic director and in a programme wants to hire but uh build brom will ob will probably make about uh an extra million to a million a half a year more than had he been offer this job to to half weeks ago because of the honestly gross malfeasance of of of this the search their in tennessee so so what would you be talking with brom compared to his current salary at purdue or we doubling it shadowing it what are what are we you know because the reason i am asking is because i don't think anyone would faults a coach at a lower level of for making a move after only one season jeff brohm has been at a big ten school for one season and there are a whole lot of guys would have a problem with that just kind of ethically you know just where i'm in a bail on all these kids and everything after only one year it's going to be i would be shocked if it wasn't four point he may ease making three i believe right now and i would be shocked if it wasn't something like 45 merely for the fact of tennessee has to get this out of the spotlight if they think promised the guy in your willing to give gundy seven million dollars a year you give brano amid a next or million and a half i don't know that the case i'm just you know using deductive reasoning to think that this amid a million and a half more to go to tennessee which probably has more pell of or pedigree in football.

"Fence her defense really well does not mean that that guy's automatically going to be able to run a program really well and the fact that you know is actually been a head coach at a lower level i think is a positive because it you least you know a little bit about what you're getting here very a fordham morphine art it was non scholarship but but also one a lot of football games so that is even a quick i think they were marooned wide as well to so he doesn't have to change a lot of the closet back backing wells yeah ought to give himself a cowbell the right yeah that's one of my favorite stories about a coaching change which i've i've told on this show before but not recently is i think you jim bolger housekey was to lane and 1990s six and he is asking tommy bowed you know if he was ill was a serious about taking the cleanse clemson job in tommy's this looked at him and got up from his desk goes into his closet behind the desk started throwing out all the green shirts in the closet and says you want any of these are you interested in these he needed a new wardrobe south so that's the efficient coaching search and then we have more liberal i'll let you in all here mike gundy that would not have needed i've outfitted change hetty gone to knoxville but he has decided as he said he is a cowboy for life and played there he's coach there has been the head coach there forever and that he is not going to knoxville vis leaves seven milliondollar a year deal it he's like now i'm going to be a cowboy for life like how how do you even take the interview if you're sir seven million dollars a year i mean no coaches ever had more leverage over a program and now everyone's gotta go to tennessee and just be like yeah i'd like my pay raise blaze.
