Why Author Mark Shaw Sought the Truth in the JFK Assassination
"For folks who don't know anything about you, how did you get into this? Because anybody who's been alive in our lifetimes know that there's been tremendous controversy and confusion around certainly the death of president Kennedy, the death of Marilyn Monroe, and many people haven't even heard of Dorothy kill gallon. What brought you? What is your background that brought you to investigate these things as you have done over the years? Well, you ask about how I got into all of this and I have no idea in some ways very Quinn. President Kennedy was killed 60 years ago, you know, nearly 60 years ago or a little bit more. You know, I like everybody else. I cried my ears out. I was a Purdue university as a freshman. And yet over the years then, I bought all this material about J. Edgar Hoover saying Oswald alone. Oswald alone all of that and everything else. And then I had a real break with this because I knew Melvin Belli, who represented Jack Ruby, who shot Lee Harvey Oswald. I practiced law with him in San Francisco in the 80s. And when Belle I died, I started to look into his life and times and I found out that I could have a book there. So I wrote Melvin bell I king of the courtroom. And what I found out was the alarming, a couple things. First of all, he was very close with the mafia, one of his main clients was Mickey Cohen, the Los Angeles gangster. You're talking about but more than talking about Bella, are you talking about Marvin belli was close with the mafia? Melvin bell. Melvin Belli. Bella. Yeah. San Francisco attorney, but also he was known as a tort lawyer. He was a personal injury lawyer. How in the world I asked myself, I mean, you're a curious guy. How did he become Jack Ruby's attorney? So I started looking into that and what I found out was that actually he was a hired by those who wanted to silence Jack Ruby for his participation in the killing of Oswald and the JFK assassination. So

"You know, Marvin, I've interviewed a lot of CEOs from, you know, from different backgrounds. You know, people who grew up poor in West Virginia or in India or other countries around the world, you were born to a poor family in Tennessee and you rose to the top of your industry. I mean, you were a Fortune 500 CEO. And what I think of you as a kid, right? And looking for role models out in the world. And then how you emerge from where you were, looking at your dad and thinking about the possibilities, when you think about this challenge, right? There are 500 of these biggest companies in the U.S. and last year only three of those companies were run by African American leaders. So how do we change that? How do we create a space where the next Marvin Ellison, who is a kid now looking out, sees someone who looks like him or a young woman who looks like her running these companies. Okay, so great question is one I think about often. I think it comes down to a couple of fundamental beliefs that I have. I think the first one is you have to be willing to give someone the opportunity to fail in order for them to have the opportunity to be successful. And here's what I mean by that. Oftentimes I have heard people sitting in a meeting going through succession planning or any kind of HR process when there's a diverse candidate and there's an opportunity, they will find themselves saying something like, well, we have to be very careful because we can't put her in this role and have the possibility that she will fail that will send a terrible message or we've got to be really careful. We want to make sure that he's successful. So let's make sure that we don't put him in a role that's going to limit his opportunity to be successful, but when you, when you try to protect someone like that, what you're limiting is their ability to be successful. I think about the roles that I've had to take over the years and I talk about the last 20 years I'm replacing someone forced out of fire. One of the reasons why I did that was because I knew if I could go as the old saying goes, take the road less travel. We'll take the jobs that no one else was standing in line saying, I'll take that assignment that it would give me a chance to highlight to others that I had leadership ability that I could go in and I could solve a complex plex problem that maybe others shot away from, that really give you a rich reward ratio. I think number two, and I give how it shows credit for this, and I've gotten to know how I would fairly well over the years, you have to create an environment where you can have tough, can it discussions about a lot of the issues impacting us in this country and our communities so that leaders of all colors and ethnicities and genders can fill this dough that they work in an environment where it's okay to be comfortable being you. One of the many things that my parents specifically my dad taught my siblings and I was something that I heard them say a thousand times that was nobody can beat you being you. Don't try to imitate someone, don't try to be something that you're not find out your God given talent and ability and then be the best at being you. And so I think in a lot of corporate environments, we create environment, we create situations and we create cultures where diverse candidates, employees, leaders, really struggle to fit in because they don't know that they can be their most authentic self and that that's a safe decision to make. And I'll give you one example because I think it's relevant to share. I remember my first assignment working at the Target Corporate office. And I'll go to this corporate environment. I go up there with a lot of confidence and a lot of bravado thinking, you know, I'm ready for this. And I look around and there is nobody in that corporate environment that looked like me. No one who spoke like me and I'm thinking, man, I have made a mistake. I am not going to fit in. And so I spend the next couple of months trying to fit in. I try to modify how I dress, I try to modify how I speak, and just try to look more quote unquote professional. And it is not going well because I come to the realization while everyone else is doing one job. I'm doing two jobs. I'm doing my core responsibility, which is a job number one. And then job number two is being somebody that I'm not. So I remember one evening I came home exhausted. My wife looks at me and said, how's it going? It works. Seem to be really stressed. I said, well, you know, it's not going well. I said, it's not that the job is harder than I thought. I said, I'm just really struggling to fit in. And I just, I don't know what to do. And she reminded me of what my dad had said a thousand times. She said, why don't you just relax and be yourself? And in my mind, I heard my dad's voice say, nobody can beat you being you. So I decided, you know what? I got nothing to lose. Because what I'm doing currently is not working that well. So I decided to go to work and rather than being so careful about how I pronounce every word and how I articulate every phrase outside just to be me. In the moment I started to do this, a funny thing happened. People became a lot more interested in what I had to say. People became more engaged with me. People wanted me to be on focus groups and working on these committees because what I quickly learned is that what I was before was a corporate commodity, which is easily accessible and inexpensive. What I became was a corporate scarcity, unique, different. And it was a great lesson for me as a young executive to understand the importance of just being me being the best me. I still think today we, many corporate corporate America will create environments where we think we're protecting and creating an easy environment to navigate for some of our diverse up and coming leaders and we're doing just the opposite. So I think it's all of those things but I think it's a big commitment from corporate America to just be more aware of the things that we need to do to create a pathway for the next up and coming executive that's going to be significantly better than anything. I ever thought about being. My friend, when you think about your career and your trajectory, do you think you were born with innate leadership skills or do you think that you learned how to become a leader over the course of your life? I think it's a combination of both. I think first and foremost, when we are born, I think we're born with unique skill sets that are just part of our DNA. When I look around at my kids, I see the exact same individual at 23 with my son that I saw when he was 5. When my daughter who's 17 when she was ten or four. So I think you are who you are at a certain foundational level, but I think the difference is, whether or not you have intellectual curiosity to take your foundation and expand.

"And I went in with my eyes wide open, but I went in with a belief that there were a couple of things, if we could do, we could stabilize the company first and then when you stabilize the company, we could try to find ways for the company to grow. But there are three important things I learned from my experience there. And I look at my time at JCPenney as a success. And I'll define to you in a moment why I see it as a success. The three important things alone was number one, the importance of not losing your core customer. Right. One of the critical strategic mistakes made. So JCPenney decided that they needed a different customer base for them to have future growth potential and they want to walk away from the traditional kind of more mature customer and they want to be a more hip more cool retailer that millennials would be interested in buying clothes and accessories from and the way I describe it to people is the equivalent of a guy being in high school dating the same girl for three years and then as a senior prom approaches he decides to tell her that he's no longer interested and he's going to make a run for the homecoming queen in the homecoming queen tells him she's not interested so he goes to the prom by himself. The second thing I learned was you have to eliminate communication filters between the CEO and the front line, what was so interesting for me is when I arrived, I couldn't believe that most of the front line executives store managers, assistant managers all the employees had no idea the company was losing money. Because in their view, okay, we're driving 11 billion in revenue, we have a gross margin of 30%, that's easy match. So we're making money, but what they didn't realize is the company taking on so much debt. And the interest expense was crippling to the balance sheet, but no one had communicated that to them. And so I remember going around visiting stores and doing all these town halls and people are complaining because we're kind of tightening our expense management and we're kind of being more frugal and asking me, while we taking things away, I'm saying to them, unfortunately we're in real trouble here and they didn't know it. And so I remember doing a one hour broadcast where I explained the financial condition of the company and that broadcast changed the total mentality and trajectory of what people understood because we were previously we were talking about EBITDA and EPS, we're talking about net income earnings per share and no one understood what that meant. Right, right. And so I just wanted to take, I took all those financially technically financial terms that were very comfortable with and I broke them down in layman's terms for everyone to understand and that taught me a lesson that sometimes in management, we don't know who our audience is and we have to do a better job of communicating directly to the employees that are on the front lines because they matter most culture engaging. With the customers and the last thing I learned, which got to make people decisions in organizational changes quickly because the longer you wait, the more difficult it is to make those decisions that are important for the business. And so those are three of many things that I learned, but when I look at my time there, we grew sales by 9%. We improved free cash flow of almost $3 billion. We paid down 1.6 billion in debt so we stabilized the company. We restructured the debt so that there is no pending debt payments that puts the company at risk, my job was far from done, but I feel great about the work done and I feel great about some of the very hardworking committed talented people that I met while I was there. I'm just curious about strategy, right? Because they were very specific things that you did at JCPenney. Like, for example, I was reading that you were focused on revenue per customer, right? Like instead of increasing sales and trying to acquire more and more customers, you had your team's focus on getting existing customers to spend more. And I read that you were really focused on data driven decision making that you would look at data and try to figure out how data could shape decisions like I read that at JCPenney men's shoes and women's shoes were just sort of thrown together in the same section and you kind of looked at this and said, hey, you know, we should actually put men's shoes by the suits and then that actually increased the sale of shoes. That's exactly right. We were trying to leverage space and we did not understand how customers shop. And so when we started to do just some real basic research around what we call adjacencies, meaning what product categories do you put adjacent to each other, we came to the clear conclusion that men hated to shop in the women's area and women did not like the shop where men's shoes were. So we basically took the space where we were giving to Manchus, we gave all that space to women's shoes, we can expand the women's shoe assortment and we reposition men's shoes and the men's area about eliminating some non productive categories and we saw sales increases and shoes in both areas because the shopping experience just made more sense. Did the other things that we did when you think about revenue per customer, while we forcing a JCPenney customer has a JCPenney credit card proprietary credit card to have to go to the other side of the mall to buy appliances. And so as we think about revenue per customer, it was simply asking the question of the customer, what are you buy somewhere else that you wish you could buy here? Because JCPenney stopped selling appliances, I guess, in like 1983. That's right. That's right. So you basically said, let's make more of these things available to our customers here in the store. And then they won't go to wherever else. That's exactly right. So rather than spending the marketing dollars to acquire new customers, we did that because new customers are vitally important, we put the same emphasis on serving the customers deadhead lawly stayed with the company by simply asking the question, what are you wish you could buy more of, the relationship with Sephora cosmetics was another example because of your female customer and you buy cosmetics, then we want to find out why how can we convince you to buy more from us. So all of those initiatives were designed around increasing the revenue per loyal customer while in parallel looking to see if you could also expand your customer base. So all the things that you implemented at JCPenney, I mean, those things really did work. I think I read that in 2015 during the holidays, JCPenney had a reported 4% increase in comparable sales over the previous season, and yet Marvin, what's confounding to me is that JCPenney's stock price was getting hard, right? Like,.

"Was a way of me projecting to myself as much as to the outside world what I wanted to be. Did you already at a young age? Already in college, like see yourself see your future as somebody who is going to be running a huge organization, somebody who's going to be doing really big things. Did you see yourself that way? That's a great question. And I'll give you a very critical event that happened to me that really helped to just give me an enormous amount of confidence. When I went to the university of Memphis, it's called Memphis state at the time. It's really a big urban college. You had 23,000 students. And so I'm coming from this really small town. And I'm transitioned to this major university. And I remember going to my freshman English class. And I'm in there with 30 students or so. And the first assignment was write a one page, so I essay on a momentous occasion that happened your 12th grade year. And so I put something together. The next class, the professor, you know, handed out all the essays with exceptional mind. And he asked, where's Marvin Ellison raise your hands? I raised my hand. He said, miss Ellison, wait, I want to chat with you after class. Something. Well, that can't be good. So I hang around and this young professor asked me a simple question. He said, where'd you go to high school? So I told him, he said, what did you study? I talked about this. What did you read? So I explained how limited my kind of reading assignments were and he handed me my paperback and there were more red marks on that paper, it seemed and what I'd actually ridden myself. And he said, mister Ellison, you're going to have to work really hard. He said he only way you're going to get out of this class and get out of this university. You got to put any known amount of effort because your high school simply didn't prepare you to be successful and major university. And he said, these are my office hours. And if you're committed about doing better, you can come see me and I will do all I can to help you, but you're going to have to do the work and it's going to require some commitment. And I was devastated and so I kind of walked out with my head down and I decided, you know, I'm not going to fail. I'm not going to go back home without my degree. And so I remember the next day I met him at his office and I told him, I'm willing to do the work. And so he gave me a list of books. I had to go to the library to read on my own time. Just to help improve my ability to write and my ability to meet the rigors of a college English course. And I went to work. And at the end of that semester, there were three kids that got an a in English, and I was one of them. I'm not going to sit here today and tell you that, that I walked away from that saying, I'm going to run a big company, but I walked away from that saying that there's nothing at this university or anywhere that's going to limit me or prevent me from achieving the goals and aspirations I have for myself.

So while you were in college, you started working at target, I should say a local target in Memphis as a security guard, and you actually continued working there like even after you graduated, but I guess over time you somehow worked your way up to a pretty high ranking position at corporate headquarters. How did that happen? Was it was a slow progression or did somebody kind of see potential in you and give you a chance? Yeah, how did it happen? Well, it's a combination of a lot of things, but that's exactly right. So I graduate from the university of Memphis, it's 1989, the economy is not great. It was really difficult in Memphis. I had met my soon to be wife, who was still a student, and I desperately wanted to stay in Memphis after I graduated, but I couldn't find anything. Because I had a degree in marketing and my goal was to be a sales rep. Couldn't find anything in Memphis. So I decided to stay at target out of default. And the toughest thing for me to do was to graduate on Saturday. And go back to work on Monday and clock in. Wow. Because I still didn't have an executives. I was still on the clock, I still employ after I graduated. And so I applaud for a security manager. We call it asset protection manager role in Memphis. A couple of months after that, and I just totally just engulf myself in retail. I want to learn everything about how to front end systems work, how receiving work, how to price change system, how merchandise flowed in. And what I found out is the more I learned about retail, the better I got at my job. And the better I got at my job, the more I enjoy my job. And all of a sudden, I never forget this day. I'm in the store with three of my periods we're doing an audit in a new store, two or three hours into the audit with my peers, we're in the office, and we're just complaining about not being paid enough. Work is rigorous. You know, just a typical thing, you tend to do when you get with people, you know, in your same position. And we get a phone call in the office that we had a visitor, someone was coming in from the corporate office and it was our vice president of the entire function had decided to visit Memphis unannounced. Wow. And this guy's name was king Rogers. So king comes in the office and he said, oh, this is great. I got four asset protection managers, he said, let's just do a little mini town hall. What can I take back to the corporate office to make your lives easier? And before I could say anything, a couple of guys jumped in to king, everything is just great, man. We love working here. We think it's fabulous. Stop saying to myself, man, just 30 minutes ago, we were just complaining about everything. So I said, king, I got one issue. I said, we got this new system that was rolled out that screens and accepts checks. I said, this system is very uncut or friendly, and we've been getting a ton of complaints. And my three colleagues were just mortified that I had said that. I could look in their eyes and say, Martin, what have you done? And so Kane looks at me and said, okay, give me some more feedback. So I gave him some more. Danny said, well, give me a couple recommendations on it. If you were me, what would you do to fix this? And so I gave him a couple of examples. And so king picked up the phone and said, give me a second. And my peers are looking at me kind of out of car to ask saying, you've done it now. And he hangs the phone up and he said, you know, Marvin, he said, what's really frustrating is that I've been out visiting stores all week long and you're the first person to have the courage to tell me how bad the system is. I just got off the phone and asked him to shut this pilot down. And I would love to leave here right now and visit you and your story to spend a lot of time to get to know you. So king comes to my store and he's spending time with me walking the store and of course my straw managers there and he's nervous because it's gas from the corporate office. And so king is very curious about tell me about myth is what's the political environment here? What's the socioeconomic issues in my store manager is totally clueless to any of this. But you know, I'm a pretty inquisitive person. I'm intellectually curious, so.

"Promotional opportunities, it's not easy to stay resilient and stay motivated, but I have. How Marvin Ellison went from security guard to becoming the CEO of two major Fortune 500 companies. So if you look at the list of Fortune 500 CEOs, a total of three are African American. It's a pretty small group, not even 1%. Actually, .6% of the CEOs on that list. And in this very small group, is one person who has led not one, but two Fortune 500 companies. And that person is Marvin Ellison. Marvin is pretty used to beating the odds. While he was in business school, he started working as a security guard at target. He stayed there even after he graduated and he worked his way up to a pretty high position. He then went on to Home Depot where, after years of working his way up and proving himself, he got a chance to help that company turn around in the midst of a financial crisis. And then he completely changed industries and became CEO of JCPenney. And was, in the midst of turning around that ailing company, when he got a call from Lowe's in 2017, the CEO of Lowe's home improvement announced he was retiring after 12 years. At that point, Lowe's had become the second biggest consumer home improvement company in the world with a market cap of more than $60 billion. But sales were stagnant. Lowe's had as many stores as its rival Home Depot, but not nearly as much market share. So the board conducted a months long search to find the right person. And in the end, they chose Marvin. And what's even more amazing about Marvin's story of beating the odds is that he's a self described introvert. He was often passed over for promotions, and he says, nearly every executive job he's held, he got because his predecessor was fired. He was the one who always took the tough assignments who always got thrown into crises, and in the end became something of a turnaround wizard. And the grit that it took to face these challenges really came from growing up in Brownsville, Tennessee, where Marvin watched his parents work really hard to give him and his siblings, a better life. My dad was a sharecropper. He actually worked in the field the day that I was born. And my mom at the time was working as a maid at a truck stop motel. My dad tells us really funny story. And he tells me the story, every birthday that when I was born, my mom was delivered via a midwife. And my dad said that when I was born, he went into the room to pay to midwife and the entire fee for my delivery was $14. And he said, because he had worked in the field that day he had cash and she was so impressed that he had the entire amount that she gave him a discount. And he said, so I cost only $12 and he's still waiting for me to pay him. And that's a cool story. That's amazing. Did you have ambitions from a young age? Did you think I'm going to get out of this place? I'm going to go somewhere to a city or I'm going to do something bigger than this. I had the best childhood that you can imagine, even after talking about my dad being a sharecropper and my mom working in that motel. From my earliest remembers of understanding the English language, my parents would say to me and my siblings, you could be anything you want, you can be the president of the United States, you can achieve any level of success as long as you focus on three fundamental things first you have to always understand that it will come from hard work to you have to understand the importance of getting an education because they felt that they had missed out on that opportunity because of a segregated society. They grew in, grew up in and because their parents and the people that raised them just didn't have a real vision for the power of education. And third, strong belief in God. So all of those things reinforce my belief that I could be anything I wanted to be. And as I grew up in that small town and that rural community, I would go outside in my front yard often. And I could look to the north south east and west. I couldn't see anything. That gave me really a natural kind of intellectual view of what the future could be, because my surroundings were just so primitive. And they were just so rural and so limited. But there was something inside of me from that earlier time because of the influences of my parents that led me to believe that there was something bigger for me out there. Didn't know what it was, but I knew that my plight in life was not to grow up in this small rural community and be limited by my surroundings and my parents would say often that you can not allow your surroundings to limit your vision of the future. So it's a long answer to saying, I always believe that God had a bigger plan for me that there were larger things for me to do and my parents encouraged that from my earliest remembers of understanding words. I guess, I guess you went off to college at the university of Memphis when it's time for you to go to college. And I read that when you were a student on campus, you used to walk around with a briefcase, is that is that true? Yeah, it's actually true. You know, I just felt like that I was trying to project kind of where I wanted to be. I didn't obviously I didn't have a lot. I was going to school via financial aid and student loans. But I always felt, as I said, growing up in that small town that there was more for me. And so I knew I wanted to be a business person. I didn't know what that was. My dad ultimately transitioned from working with his hands and working with his back to being a salesperson. And ultimately became a very successful local salesperson, operating on a 100% commission so the reason why that's important to why I carried a briefcase is because even though I grew up in this rural community, most of my Friends on farms and their dads working in factories and driving tractors and doing mechanics work. My dad left home every day with a tie on. Carrying a briefcase. It's almost like it's almost like the old deal expression dress for success, right? That if you go out of the house with a tie on, then yourself image is of a person who is important, who needs to wear those clothes to project something.

"I would not recommend this album. I don't want in a house. I don't want it in a box with a fox. I don't want to listen to this album ever again. You know, I remember just not loving me. Like, and that's the thing. We're reviewing albums, not necessarily individual tracks. There are individual tracks. I can go back and listen to it and be like, okay, this song just alone is good. But as an album as a cohesive movie, I would not watch this movie again. Maybe I, you know, a few scenes would be appealing, but yeah, it was really underwhelming with this. Ro, I'm remembering how you felt about the Bob Dylan album. And I feel like I feel that right now. I feel that level of just being upset and just being underwhelmed with it. So yeah, I'm going to I have to give him at least a three for his vocals, but I'm struggling to go to a four. Yeah. So I'm gonna stick with a four at a reverence for his vocal abilities, which similar to you. I can't think of ten other artists that sing better than Marvin Gaye. But an underwhelming thematic approach here, my friend. So four out of ten from Marvin Gaye. Yeah, I think some of the high point I don't think we talked a lot about the instrumentation. I thought the band was tight. So that's obviously canvas work. I got a land on a 5. I was between a literally a four and a half, but I round up because it takes me and I give appreciation to the artist. Yeah, I agree. You could have done a lot better, could have been more coherence, could have actually wrote it down, spent more time on pooling it all together, but that's what he wanted to do. So even if he did still wouldn't have changed I mean, it would have been more coherent for me and I think it would have appreciated that, but it wouldn't have changed my feeling of, you know, dude, this is just too much. But I get it, the concept album. And those are hard to those are easily hits and misses, right? You can either just dig it or write off the bat because you're in for the whole roller coaster..

"So, I don't know. It was just left me kind of like a feeling weird in both this whole album. I'm feeling weird towards him too. But that's also the reality. Yeah. I don't know. Maybe Marvin Gaye gets a little more of a pass with me because I revere him as, you know, one of the greatest R&B, artists and vocalists of all time. He's definitely in my top tier of vocalists ever. I 100% can not name ten vocalists. Male or female who I enjoy listening to more than I do Marvin. I mean, real quick, highlights and low lights before I get my final rating. Highlights for me through his vocal layering is phenomenal. His ability to, you know, explore the different octaves and make it sound as pleasant as he does dude, he is. Amazing at doing that. And I think he does that very good, very well. And when did you stop loving me at the end, sparrow, even though that didn't have much to do with the main theme of the album, the vocals on that are freaking dope as well. A lot of these songs made its way into my subconscious. And what I mean by that is throughout the day I'd catch myself singing and whistling this shit. Last night, woke up to take a leak at three in the morning and I'm fucking humming sparrow, you know? So it's like, I know that I know that I enjoy an album or music a lot when it seeps into my subconscious when it's like, I'm not even thinking about it, but I'm actually thinking about it. So highlight for me on that low light is, yeah, I wish his lyrical content was a little tighter, a little more direct, a little more in tune with what he was going through. I wish that he was, I wish that he explored the full range of emotion when you go through a breakup. Never mind a divorce. So I wish that he had tapped into more of the sadness, the sorrow, the, you know, the other, the other facets that he didn't really touch on. Overall, my final grading for this, because I think the lyrics could have been better because I think the thematically it could have been a little tighter. I'm gonna give this an 8..

"And you know what happens pretty often, you know, for example, another artist, you know, I'm a huge fan of big pun, but he's famously known for beating the shit out of his ex-wife. You know, so there are artists throughout history that, you know, they maybe were living a little shy, but you know, because they're so great at what they do. People tend to sweep it under the rug, which is not necessarily the best thing. But yeah, definitely layers to this. There are certain there's a certain level that if you surpass and I'm not supporting this. But yeah, before, before we I don't know, do we want to get into what are you doing? How you doing what time of it? He just woke up and Devin's got him, but yeah, I gotta wrap this up by 9 40. 9 45 the latest. Cool. All right, so let's get into highlights and lowlights and then we'll get into final thoughts. Cool. Wonderful. Yeah, so for me, the highlights on this album are where there is a connection of the poetry, the sentiment, the context and Marvin Gaye's vocal abilities. I feel like anger is probably my favorite song on the album because I thought it was executed well. He explored the concept of anger. It's almost like he's giving you instructions a little bit on how to perceive anger. And obviously a divorce is a very infuriating thing. I think what 12 years in a marriage, I felt like he did a good job of connecting all those pieces there. And I thought the instrumentation was probably the most connected to that. So for me, that was definitely a highlight. And it strange to also be a highlight because I did think it was kind of disconnected, but the funky spaceship song, I forget the title of it. Yeah. But I thought that something was great. But once again, didn't necessarily connect. It was almost like he was trying to escape from the feelings of everything that he was going through, which is not what I wanted. I wanted an album of anger and sadness. It's about divorce. It shouldn't be escaping Marvin. Let's stay in this and let's do this together. So I feel like those two songs right there are kind of highlight where I'm out with the album, which is, you know, clear reverence for the men's vocal abilities, man. You can't even try to name 20 other male vocals that are better than Marvin Gaye. But in terms of the songwriting ability and the vision and connecting the vision with the lyrics with the instrumentation,.

"The deep rooted reasons why their relationship did not work out. And Subaru around through the Internet, I also read that his ex-wife and again, she was a brother of Barry Gordy, who was the top dog at Motown. She was apparently heavily heavily involved in Marvin Gaye's career in terms of keeping a motivated helping them with scheduling and arranging coordinating things at times helping them write and produce a music. So she was very heavily involved. You know, a decade or so after the relationship, things started to dwindle away. So Marvin likes to in this album as we see, he's painting himself to be kind of the victim. You did me wrong. The reality is I wasn't really the case. So here we go. He writes an album where, with knowing that the content, it is confusing, listening to it, because some of the things that he's singing about, you would not necessarily feel that it is about a divorce. You know, falling in love again, you know, I met a little girl. There are songs in here that don't really sparrow, sparrow to me that made no really didn't really make any sense in the overall theme of the album. He's singing about a bird who's famously known for kind of whistling very pretty in shit, but like, what does it have to do with your divorce? So there are a lot of conflicting things that go on in this album. But I will say that overall, I did enjoy most of these songs. I'd say, you know, 7 or excuse me. There is 14 songs on this album. I liked all but three of them. Yeah, so I like, you know, 80, 85% of these songs, composition wise in terms of his voice, man. I think his voice is just a freaking cheat code for me, you know? It's like, it's so like pure and rich and for me it makes anything sounds better than what it is, you know? But yeah, real quick before we transition into something else. I'm wondering when you guys listen to an artist..

"You know, the litigations that go on to attorneys involved and, you know, she was looking for monetary reparations if we will. So when they split Marvin Gaye was kind of heavy drug addiction and low on money. So his attorney suggested that the royalties in upfront money were to be given to his now widow, if you will, Anna Gordy. So. With that in mind, Marvin decided that he was going to make the album a conceptual album, essentially an open letter about their relationship. So on and so forth. So let's start with that gentleman joining me is benevolent Benjamin and lionhearted Libby, my co host. So let's jump into the album. So I'm wondering what were you guys as impression of Marvin Gaye prior to listening to this and, you know, how did that change after listening to this? Marvin Gaye to me was just like a symbol of funk soul and like just the poppy kind of poppy upbeat love, happy, some of those popular songs. He just was kind of like a quasi sex symbol in my mind. Just more is just positive, upbeat, you know, that high falsetto unless you're really listening to the lyrics. You know, it's just like evokes a happiness. It's just this level of this feeling of just positive mood. So, yeah, walking into this. I mean, before I even listen to the album when I looked it up, you know, it's hard not to read the first couple sentences about what it is what it's about. So to set the stage for me before I listen to it, that this was not what I was used to. Or wasn't going to be what I was used to. So yeah, I kind of knew what we were signing ourselves up for something different. And I was interested to see what that would be like. And how he would accomplish it. His to me, I think, you know, his signature falsetto was kind of like I said earlier. Just to me, it has like this like lifting quality. It's sort of ascending. And soothing, you know? So that layered on top of some upbeat tracks and some more mid tempo funk just seemed to always just seem to me to be more of a positive element. Love and the positives, the good side of love. So.

You can imagine that I was kind of giddy as I was interviewing Marvin and he was saying all of this stuff about how we really have to dial this in and personalize it for the person because that is everything I'm about is. Is really you being your own personal health detective and figuring out what works for you and what doesn't. And you talked about a lot of great guidance with different tests, everything from gut microbiome tests to genetic tests. And it is exciting and food and elimination. And of course, food sensitivity tests. It's exciting how much more is coming out now and how much more we know. But you know, you go back to still the single most powerful thing is how you feel and really connecting to the dots between what you're eating or what's going on in your life and how you're feeling. So my big challenge to you and you've heard me do this before and I'm doing it again. Is food journal. Now, why do I keep hammering hammering on about food journals? First of all, they are so powerful for helping you make shifts in your life. So it can never beat this just the recording, what you measure and monitor you can improve setting those specific goals. But the reason I really love food journals here is it allows you to look back and go, all right, I was eating this and I feel this way. So it's a really useful tool to help you connect the dots between what you're eating and how you feel super important.

Where Does Derek Brunson Go From Here?
"Let's talk about dark brunson because he looked great. He dominates he submits darren till in the third round. He's now won five in a row. He's tear it up. And in the contextual sense. He has absolutely done enough to earn a title. Shot in fact. I will strongly argue. He is more deserving title. Shot than marvin vittori was when he got the title shot. Robert whitaker is next. Brunson could easily wait for a title shot. He could be a backup. He could be replacement fighter for that fight or he could go ahead and just take another fight. So where does derek brunson go from. Another dominant win. I'll be shocked if he's not at least slotted in as a reserve for the Sonya you would occur rematch when whenever that happens and it's not. It hasn't been book yet. We're all thinking early. Twenty twenty two. I'm sure brunson will be ready by then. I'm sure he's staying in shape. He's aware of the possibility. I know we said on another show recently. That fighters shouldn't take reserve opportunities. But i mean. I think they should if they're only if they're guaranteed show money and win money. It brunson gets that guarantee. I know that's not gonna happen. That's not how the ucf works. I think they might get their show money usually because they show up and they weigh in. So that's the minimum. You should also get your win money. I want that to be a policy in the usa going forward. And that's the case. Brunson one hundred percent. Be ready for that spot. He's he's definitely earned that for me. If he can wait. I wanna see him weight. This ideal situation that sonya and whitaker shah you're february the late and then And then we you know maybe brunson can get in there. I guess it would be may probably may or april which seems like a long time but if you can wait that long. That's how i would do it. I he deserves tell shot he should notify anyone else. Yeah i mean. I think he's absolutely unequivocally in the driver's seat for the next in line. Spot behind whittaker it's oughta sonya whitaker brunson then cannon air in my eyes and if i'm derek brunson like you said there's nothing more you need to do your next fight should be for the belt and you hope that robert whitaker doesn't beat israel ottesen it because then there's going to be a trilogy fight yada yada. Yada canadair needs brunson to solidify title. Shot brunson does not need cannon air to solidify his in my eyes for the sake of check the tapes and all that the ufc will probably make the fight between brunson and cannon air possibly put it on the same card is out of sonya whitaker. So that's why pick.

Maybe it's wrong. i don't know what are your thoughts on protein powders. I don't why i no way is like a. It's a little harder on your digestive system right so kind of moved away from that to try to find better plant based protein powders. Are those okay or should avoid them. I think you know If you have a hard time trying to get in the proper amount of nutrients that you might need on a daily basis and it's a good clean product with organic stuff And minimally processed Then okay. You know you can use it as a supplement but not nothing should really replace the real thing which is real food. Remember the the rule of thumb if it was made in a bag or a box. It's a container is processed by definition is process in if it's processed You know not. Every company is the same so you wanna look into the philosophy of the company and what they do and how they make their food but if it's processed it's something that's made for profit right. It's a business. If it's made for profit then their interest may not necessarily be in your health it's interest. The interest is in their income fright. That's the business that's just that's just how the world works. And so you know don't necessarily always think that this is a product on the shelf in it's in the health i'll therefore it is Translates to good for my health. It may not always be the case are there are some companies who are doing a great job at reducing the amount of processing needed And trying to give very clean simple products. And you want to kind of look into those kinds of things if if you have the ability to okay art so take me through a day in the life of dr. Marvin sing from your. You know head space. Whatever you're doing for your Mindfulness what are you gonna eat. What is that feeding window gonna look like. What are the things that you're going to try to make sure you do not do that.

"It. Didn't have anything bad to say about that. But you know and his in his own. Mind this dude. He cringed at the thought of putting him wide receiver making him run across the middle and meet people like deacon jones or chuck howley or dick buttons. Like he couldn't live with himself. If dick fuck is took. Marvin gay's head off across the middle. He couldn't be seen as the guy that ruined marvin gays. He actually fake go. Go block deacon jones and see how that works out for you. You know just wasn't gonna work for lucky. Told him like maher. Let i love you yet. Love your attitude. I think i told him. I said you can see now. You have some ability but not good enough to play professional football. Glad you came out. Everybody enjoyed your presence on. Thanks for coming on and lemon mel understood. That did pretty good. You know after work. And i would. And i and hanging out with us and going to the games and really getting involved on it. But he just didn't have what it took to get him over. The hill mara was a little disappointed. He was a little upset about that. But you know. He was ultimately appreciative of just the opportunity and coach matome. He thinks that sort of satisfied his desire to play professional sports. Like he had a tryout not everybody can say they have a tryout regardless of whatever you want to say about the level or the intensity of that drought that man gotta try out in front of a professional football coach and even more than that just in. What you're reporting is showing. Is that that whole effort to make the team. That truly refocused marvin gaye at least for a time. So if you know anything about marvin gaye you know that drug abuse drug addiction was unfortunately a frequent chapter throughout his life and in particular. You know bouts with cocaine battles with drinking and your things of that sort but for this period of time of marvins life when he really had a goal to chase after we had a goal he really wanted to achieve and that was a professional football in the nfl. He kicked all of that to the curb right. He picked up weightlifting multiple times that he picked up cardio multiple times they. He was truly getting himself into what he believed. Football shape looked like because this was his chance. This was his chance to prove to himself. The i run my life on my own terms. And this is what i wanna do and in a way you have limb barney mel farts. Thank for that so in the years. right after. What's going on and that unsuccessful. Football tryout justin marvin gaye became marvin gaye. I mean let's get it on. That came out. In nineteen seventy-three sexual healing came out in nineteen eighty two that revolutionary performance of the national anthem that was nineteen eighty three. But at the same time as all of that was happening. Marvin gazed drug abuse. The other issues plaguing him throughout his life. They reemerged and became progressively. Worse did lend barney and mel farr stay in touch with marvin as that was happening. And as his star rose last time they saw him was in june nineteen eighty three in detroit. It was On the last tour of marvins by they saw marvin perform he put on a great show. But i remember mel farr telling me this in our interview and he says and i quote after the performance we go back to his dressing room he had all those hangers on giving him this drug and this drug and i said wow man i don't think he's gonna make it. Was that bad lemonade. We felt for these people taking advantage of them and there was nothing we could do. They weren't cell phones back then and it was difficult trying to get them because everybody was around him was nothing they can do to save mar and for a long time and i can tell when i smoked the mouth far about this voice. Guy really got really quiet for a second and he was really sad. Those concerns that barney and far had for marvin gaye justin. They were incredibly real. But they also didn't foresee the specific tragic way that marvin gay's life would come to an end in nineteen eighty-four because marvin gay's father. The man you had called his lifelong antagonised. He shot and killed his son in the middle of a dispute. Marvin gaye was visiting his parents home here. In los angeles. There was a family argument. The singer was shot in the chest a little. While later marvin gaye died or junior was taken to california hospital where he was pronounced dead from gunshot wounds at one o'clock this afternoon so as the years passed justin and barney in far are left with just the memory of their idol who somehow became their friend. How do they remember marvin gaye. How do they remember the wild story of that friendship. They love marvin gaye man. They love they love. He was somebody that change their life because his music had already changed their lives but then that friendship with them change their live. How oftentimes roll down a window when i hear tribute tomorrow and on the radio and scream up in air. Marvin i love you..
