What Now?: Dealing With After-Election Scenarios | FRIDAY FIELD NOTES

"You're a man of action you live life to the fullest compress your fears and boldly charge your own path when life knocks you down. You get back up one more time. Every time you are not easily deterred rugged zillion strong this is your life this we are this is who you will become at the end of the day and after all is said and done you can call yourself a man gentleman what is going on at a money is ryan nuclear and host and the founder of the old remain podcast movement. A wanna welcome here. I wanna welcome back. Glad you're tuning in I'm sure at this point. The last couple of weeks have been crazy specifically in the us on the heels in the back of us elections. I am recording this podcast on november. Four in you probably aren't listening to until november thirteenth. So we're about a week and a half away from when i actually recorded this podcast a lot more regarding the us elections. But i wanted to have this conversation with you specifically right now and also in light of me heading out of town for a hunt be sure to share the details and everything that goes down on an elk hunt that i will be participating in for the next week but i wanted to make sure that i didn't miss any content. All right. it's my job to give you all the tools the conversations the resources everything that you need to thrive as a man and today. I'm going to talk with you about dealing with after scenarios. Now i'm not gonna prognosticate on who wins actually. I'm gonna take that back. I am going to give my prognostication. And we'll see if i'm accurate or if i'm completely off base so let me give you a quick heads up just so you know for some context on where we are with the election so again. This is the morning of november fourth the recording this podcast. Twenty twenty and as of right. Now i'm just pulling up some details right here. We've got joe biden with two hundred and thirty eight electoral votes and donald trump with two hundred and thirteen. Nevada is not yet called. I think nevada will probably go blue and that will go to biden Wisconsin is very close. It's leaning blue. Michigan was leaning red but has since become a blue or leaning blue. I think it's got something like ninety percent of the votes tallied at this point so that may go blue and if that goes blue probably what we're going to see is biden has won the election if that goes blue pennsylvania north carolina and georgia are all leaning red. And it's likely that all of those states will go read which will if that's the case. If again on on michigan or wisconsin i think winston wisconsin's very close as well. If either one of those goes blue. Excuse me if two of those go blue if two of those go blue. Then it's likely. Joe biden will win the nomination for president if only one of those blue. It's likely that donald trump will become president or will will stay in presidency. So that's where we're at right now. Now look regardless of the outcome and will probably know I'm sure lot of these states are very closely. I'm sure the coming weeks will say a lot of lawsuits and litigation and it might actually be a nightmare. But i thought about what i wanted to share with you today. And regardless of what happens during these elections and the outcome of the elections the scenarios and the strategies ten strategies. I'm going to share with you. Specifically today are going to be applicable. My prediction is that if joe biden does win we're probably going to see less violence and looting and some of these things that have been happening in the past tonight and my prediction is that if donald trump wins then we'll see an increased level of violence and and rioting and everything else so regardless though we're going to see some very interesting and challenging times. I think america's more divided than it's ever been. And i don't want to politicize the show at all. I'm trying to give you objectively some measures that i think will improve your capacity Will improve your ability to lead your family your business your community members everybody that you're in charge of or have a responsibility for well so again what i'm gonna share with you today. It doesn't matter redwoods great if when it doesn't matter this is all going to apply to your situation now. Some of these things are intuitive. Probably already know. I'm going to go in depth on those and some of them are counterintuitive. And maybe you might question why would even be bringing this up to. Hopefully i can do a good enough job explaining it. So let's get into it number one and this is very broad almost feel like cheating when i say this but number one is you've just gotta take ultimate responsibility for your life and your scenario in your circumstances obviously jaakko willing has been on the podcast three or four times now at this point is talked about extreme ownership his first book with bob in extreme ownership. It's crucial guys. It's crucial and there's gonna be a lot of people who blame their circumstances on parties and politics and who won the presidency and what the economy is doing and what covert is doing. And certainly. let's not beat around the bush. Some of this stuff is absolutely a factor all right. it's a factor because it impacts your daily life and it will continue to impact your daily life. It'll pack your your taxes. It will impact legislation. It will impact the culture and climate of this country. so it's going to impact it. But ultimately i just want you to take responsibility for your life right if you are where you are right now. It's because of you. It's not because your wife. It's not because politics. It's not because of the economy. It's not because a cold that it's not because of this or not because of that. It's because of you now. Granted there might be some scenarios and situations that come up on a daily basis and randomly that will play a part but generally speaking over long and sustained periods of time. You are exactly where you deserve to be. And if you wanna be in a better situation financially spiritually emotionally relationship with your your fitness. Then it's up to you to take responsibility for that. So what i would suggest regardless of who wins the presidential nomination and the senate which is actually pretty close and it looks like the democrats will maintain the house regardless of who wins take ownership take responsibility of your life and know that the overwhelming courson direction of your life will be greatly impacted not by who wins these elections but by how you perform and how you show up so adopt and embrace that mindset many of you have and quite frankly. There's a lot of you listening have not adopted that mindset and you want to play the victim card. You love that card. That's like your ace in the hole. Your trump card no pun intended is man if i can just lay down that victim card somebody in will come in and swoop down and rescue me and save me from the circumstances that i have created for myself. I know it's hard. I know it's difficult. No it takes to the ego when you have to admit that. Maybe you're not as good as you think. You are certainly have to do that quite frankly every single day and every single time i have to do it. It stinks but this is the only path to growth is accepting responsibility owning that responsibility and then making changes in your life that will enhance improve your ability to lead yourself and others well so number one take ultimate responsibility number two guys at this point and this is coming from the background of financial planning that i have but at this point. It's crucial that you get your financial house in order. I talked about this probably a month or two ago and the podcast was a friday field notes just like this one and it was titled brace for impact brace for impact in in that i had made the suggestion that you ought to pay off debt and i had a lot of people come back and say well. That's bad advice because if everything's gonna go to hell in a handbasket then why would you ever pay off debt. Does i don't think we're going to see the demise or collapse of the united states of america. At least not right now regardless of who wins. I just don't and this show isn't about fearmongering isn't about sharing just some wild controversial ideas and things like that. It's just not what the show's about the show is about dealing reality and making yourself more capable and i don't think that we're going to see the demise of the us again at least not right now. This isn't about conspiracy or anything like that or cover ups. But i do see us being in a difficult spot financially and this has been building up over the last three four five decades. And it's only going to get worse as we continue as a as a country to increase our spending to put ourselves the whims and mercy of other countries and to become independent as it comes to imports and exports. It's only going to get worse and and it will take a long time. But here's what i would suggest to. You is getting your financial house in order will always serve you set money aside get that debt out from underneath you sell off some assets or i would i would say depreciating assets get rid of those things live within your means save and invest money broadly diversified portfolios. Obviously not all in the us but broadly diversified so you can maximize your earning potential but get that financial house in order. Track everything that you're spending track every dollar that's coming in. Learn to make more money so that you can have a higher net worth set that money aside get out from under your debt Learn how to manage and deal with taxes if biden wins the election He's him and kamala. Harris flat out said that they are going to work to the tax breaks that donald trump has set into motion. That's going to impact you now. I know a lot of people say well. It's only going to impact the wealthy. I want you to be wealthy. I want you to be one of those people. And why wouldn't you want to be one of those people and even if you're not there's tax benefits to the tax cuts that have taken place over the past four years and i if that's repealed then it's not gonna just impact the wealthy. It's going to impact the middle class. Which is where i in. Most of you happen to fall into. So yeah i know it sounds really good on the surface but trust me. Your taxes are going to go up. The dollar is gonna weekend and if you don't have your financial house in order then you're going to find yourself in a very difficult situation so brace for that. Prepare for that and get your financial house in order at number three. This one is counterintuitive. I know some you guys are gonna be like what in the heck is ryan talking about. Here's what i'm telling you build up your social media presence right now build up your social media presence right now. i know. There's a lot of hubbub and talk about facebook and twitter and instagram. They're censoring posts. And i think some of that is happening. I think i've personally seen that. I'm not gonna. i'm not going to dwell on that. I'm not gonna make myself the victim because of it. I'm not gonna draw on and on about it but that is happening. But in spite of that we have this powerful powerful opportunity to connect with and bandwidth and find other men and women who we can rally together towards common objectives common purposes. Whether it's something like order of man what we're doing here or your political goals and aspirations. But i'm telling you right now that there's probably gonna come a point in time for a lot of you who are high achieving where you're going to want to tap into a network of hundreds or thousands tens of thousands even millions of individuals that you can call on for political aspirations which i'll talk about here in a minute or for business ventures or just getting a message in an idea and thought that you have in your mind out to the world where other people can rally behind that thought idea that message and i think we can use this powerful medium of social media to be able to connect with like minded people were going to be in a significantly better spot than just sitting around and not utilizing this tool now. I remember one one of my friends. Matt jenkins introduced me. He didn't introduce me to. He tried to convince me. This was years and years ago. Probably eight nine. Ten years ago that i needed to be on facebook and i was like i have no idea why would do that. Nobody cares about what i have to say. This is stupid. I don't care what anybody else has to say. And yet here. I am less than a decade later using social media as a powerful tool and medium to advance our cause and our mission. So i'm glad for social media i appreciate and i'm grateful for what social media has afforded me and i realized that the tool it can be used for productive outcomes and it can be used for destruction. But it's how you utilize it and how you use it. So i frankly guys i know again. This sounds counterintuitive. And a lot of you guys are like why do i need social media. Well you know the best place. The best time to plant a tree is before you need the shade or the best time to dig a well is before you need the water. We've all heard those adages so it might be hard for you to wrap your head around the idea of building social media profiles right now. But i'm telling you i've created so many powerful connections networks through the medium of social media that have afforded me so many opportunities that have opened so many doors that i just never would have realized were available. Had i not worked on building my social media profile and the influence that comes with it so guys build up those social media profiles. It's very very important. And i wish i could tell you why i don't know why specifically for you. I just know that there's a powerful opportunity to build networks here and you ought to utilize every tool is your disposal. So that's number. That's number three number. Four guys. I've been talking about this for six years. I'm not the pinnacle of this necessarily. But here's what i would suggest to. You get strong and get fit. Get lean lose fat. Build muscle develop strength. Anything that you can do to enhance your physical fitness your wellness your sleep your recovery your strength or conditioning. Your metabolism anything that you can do is going to spill over an impact other areas in your life. A lot of guys believe that we make these decisions in a vacuum. That if i just go to the gym every day that i'm going to get strong. But that doesn't necessarily impact other facets of my life and so what they do is they compartmentalize elements of their life here. I am at the gym here. I am as a father here. I am at work here. I am in my church calling here. I am with charity here. I am with my kids. Here i am with my wife and we compartmentalize these things. It doesn't work like that. All right yes they may be compartmentalized based on when you spend the time there. And how you divvy up your time and attention and resources. But they're all intertwined and when you develop strength and fitness and lose weight and get in shape it's going to affect you emotionally and mentally and physically. It's going to in fact in fact affect the way that you show up as a father and those of you who are dads are at some point. We'll be i mean. Don't you want to be the best father possible. You can't do that if you're fifty pounds overweight. How can i say that. Because i was there. I was quite literally fifty pounds overweight. And i was exhausted when i got home. I had low attention I had low recovery. My sex drive wasn't nearly what it is today. It just wasn't a good place. Because i was fifty pounds overweight. Hear from these guys talk about sleep apnea and and i had that sleep apnea and also restless leg syndrome. I don't know if you guys know what this is but quite literally. I would wear holes in my sheets around my knees and my ankles. My wife pull the sheets back and see holes thinning of the sheets and holes in the sheets because my legs just twitch and move all night long. And as i started to lose weight i actually took care of the sleep apnea. I don't sleep apnea. I don't have restless leg syndrome anymore. that's because i don't have fifty pounds trying to smother me every time i go to sleep and put my head on the pillow. It just doesn't happen. And this is a small example of what could potentially happen for you if you lose thirty pounds or the fifty pounds or the hundred and fifty pounds if you learn how to sleep if you learn how to recover if you get strong not to mention the confidence the boost of confidence that comes with that and as the boost of confidence comes with that then you open up new doors and new opportunities. That just weren't present to you before now again. How does this tie into dealing with after election scenarios guys. This is a volatile time. This is a volatile time. I mean people are confused others are scared. Many people are going to be angry and frustrated. And you need to be able to rise above it but if you're not at your peak performance physically mentally emotionally then how in the world and financially like talked about earlier. How in the world are you going to rise above this. You're absolutely not gonna rise above it you're gonna fall into it and you're gonna make yourself a sheep just like the majority of other people and you're gonna look to somebody else and hope that biden trumper. Whoever it is has some way to rescue you. Because you're incapable of rescue yourself. So how do you deal with the after election scenarios and results regardless of what they are this is how getting your cell strong and fit is a critical component of that are at number five. You've got to develop self sufficiency skills self sufficiency skills now again. I'm not here to fear monger. I'm not here to tell you the world is going to end. I'm not here to tell you that. This is some catastrophic thing regardless of what happens. It's all it's all going to be okay because there's men and women who are going to make sure that it is but i will say that the more self sufficient that you can become the more sovereign that you are if you haven't read my book sovereignty which is released two and a half years ago. Now that's wild to think about it. It's been that long then. Go pick up a copy of sovereignty. Because i talk about these issues that it's important that you don't give power and credibility in authority over to other individuals organizations or political affiliations. And that you take and maintain that responsibility for yourself and that means that you need to have food stores that means you need to know how to hunt. You need to know how to grow food. You need to develop other skills whether it's mechanical skills or skills around the house things that you can do your own. So you're not at the mercy of other people not that we can't accept a hand up but we're not gonna accept a hand out not that we can't embrace somebody who wants to band with us and help us along the journey we should. We should have a level of humility to realize that other people might know more than us or they might have a skill set that we aren't familiar with that. We can utilize. That's not what i'm suggesting. But i am suggesting that you learn how to do this stuff on your own and there's people out there there's people in your communities or people in your circles there's courses and there's programs that are teaching you my wife every wednesday night. 'cause i trained wednesday evenings for jujitsu so every wednesday night. She does her own thing. Just like i do my own thing and she usually does a master class and the last one that she took was She she's done couple. She did one on gardening and then she did one on cooking meat specifically in house smoke. These are all skills that she should be learning to develop. And why you know. She's beekeeping she's gardening. She's learning how to can. She's learning how to preserve learning how to cook. I'm learning my own things. I'm gonna talk about some of that in a minute. And we're all better off for it because we're more self sufficient and we aren't reliant upon the whims and the mercy of the things that are going on around us all right number six and i know this is going to rub a lot of people the wrong way. So take it for what it's worth. My suggestion is that you consider moving away from big cities that you move out of these large cities. I honestly believe know. You'll you'll look. I think these large cities are lost. They are they're lost and there's so many people and they're crammed into into a very small area and they don't have room to spread out and they don't have room to to think about new ideas and look i get it. You know if you if you like the hustle and the bustle and you want to be in the midst of things. I get it. I completely understand. And maybe it's just personal preference but there's a lot of you who don't want to be in a big city who feel like you're obligated to be there. You feel like this is where it's happening. This is where it is. This is what i have to do. And so you've been programmed and conditioned to live in these concrete jungles and quite honestly and frankly i think it sucking your soul away from. You might not be for everybody. Some of you really thrive my one of my sons. My second son he loves the city he just comes alive and you see him light up and you see the enthusiasm and excitement. So i'm not telling you that everybody needs to move away from the city. But i am suggesting to you that if you feel like you're being drowned in the sea of degeneracy in this concrete jungle that you find a way to move at least in the suburbs. If not even further away and get more rural. I've noticed a my own personal life that there's a peace and harmony that comes with being out and being able to spread out and have some land knowing your neighbors but they're not right on top you there down the road. It's just better small towns piece for people seem to really really care about each other. Yeah when you get into small town everybody knows each other's business but that can be seen as a negative but it also can be seen as positive because people actually care about each other and we know each other because three million people. There's like three thousand people. And and and i would just tell you that we live in an environment in a culture right now where you can create tremendous opportunities Regardless of where you are geographically. That's actually one of the silver lying linings of this covert thing is more and more people are realizing holy cow. I actually don't need to go into the city. I actually don't need to be present for that meeting. I don't need to be at the center of the industrial universe. That maybe just maybe i can actually be more effective outside of it. Where i'm free of distractions worm focused on the things that are important. What i'm focused on less. But i go deeper on the things that i am focused on because there's tremendous opportunity. I know that there's hundreds of thousands of you who are listening who feel like you're obligated to stay in these concrete jungles and these large cities and you're not it's sucking the soul out of you. Some of you are meant for the city. And that's great. And i say make the most of it utilize the other strategies. I'm teaching you today. And there's a large percentage of you who are having your soul sucked out and you're going to be laying on your deathbed and you're going to be regretting all the things that you could have done because you felt obligated or compelled to stay in an environment that wasn't serving you and your family well so at least have a consideration that maybe you ought to move out of the city and get into the suburbs or even further get out into the ranches and farms in the rural communities. And get your life back on track all right number seven. I think i'm on number seven. Just look at this real quick. Yeah number seven run for office. Run for office now. I know this is hypocritical. For me to say because i have not yet run for office but i imagine at some point very soon that i will begin to start running for office because i have an obligation. I have responsibility within the walls of my family and my home within my business. Of course you guys listening but also within my community and that goes well beyond just my immediate neighbors that goes into my community as a whole and guys we can affect real change. I mean i'm so sick of seeing these politicians who spend three four five decades in office. They haven't added any other value in their lives to anybody else. They're they're manipulating the system. They're raking over the coals taking advantage of the people who pay their salaries and i'm sick of it. I'm sick of it. I want honest hard-working. Intelligent charitable humble men. Now i know as. I say that you're gonna say well. These candidates don't put him. Is that exactly. that's what i'm saying. But there's many of you. And i for the most part place myself in that camp who do a put a mice some of those valuable virtues that we here at the order of man spouse. And if that's you i want you to run for office i will support you. I will promote. I will help you because we need more. Fine men running for office leading their communities leading their school boards leading their states and frankly leading this country. And i'm going to be thrown my hat in the ring very soon and i hope that you guys will consider doing that as well because we can't affect change if we're willing to get involved if we maintain this distance this comfortable complacent distance and say. I don't wanna do that and that's not for me. I mean i understand i do. I mean who wants to subject themselves to the mercy of what's been happening over the past several years. It's not just the past seven politics. In general who what. Hardworking successful man wants to subject themselves to that but consider consider that. Maybe you're the man who can actually make a difference and move the needle in the right direction. All right number eight. This is something that we did two years ago. So this is our second year. Is i would. I would very seriously consider homeschooling her kids. This goes back to the thing. i think. The soul has been upped at ripped out of cities. I think there's a lot of corruption. I think there's a lot of Misinformation i think there's a lot of misleading and not guiding our children down the path. That many of you want your children to walk. You know you want your kids to be godly. You want your kids to respect other people you want people to understand or your children rather to understand the value of this great nation. You believe that. This nation was founded on hope and optimism and although we have always lived up to our ideals that we've paved the way for literally millions and millions of people who would not have otherwise had the type of freedom and liberty and injustice that many of us enjoy and the united states of america created that. I don't want my kids to hate the country in which they live. I don't want them to have a distorted or warped nasty perception of how this country was founded. I want them to have an honest assessment an accurate representation of the men and women who sacrificed all that they had to ensure that that we were able to at some point live up to the ideals that they had declared nearly two hundred and fifty years ago. Those are the things. I want them to learn. I want them to learn to respect country. I want them to learn to respect. God i want them to learn to respect me. And i don't believe that a schoolteacher can do better than i can know inevitably when i say this some people will say well. They're trained well. That doesn't mean anything. What are they trained in their trained in getting their children getting children to recite things to memorize things to be good cogs in the wheel and by the way. If you're a school teacher who's listening. I'm not dissing on you. I'm really not in fact. If you're an honorable hard working caring schoolteacher man or woman. I honor you. I commend you for the work that you're doing. You're in an environment that i can't imagine how difficult it must be. Because you wanna do good and you wanna do right by these children and you want them to thrive and succeed so many of these young boys and girls are being raised without fathers and mothers and you might actually be the only one in their life. And if that's you then you need to fight the nastiness and the bureaucracy in the ridiculous. That's going going on in the school systems. You need to stand up. You need to stand for truth and what's right. You need to teach kids how to be strong and tough and resilient and you shouldn't be doing that for everybody if you're a parent and you have the capacity to do it whether it's you or your wife. I think one of you ought to stay home. Really do think now. Fortunately we've been in a situation where my wife since we started having children Twelve years ago she has been a homemaker for the past twelve years. We're very fortunate in that but we are lucky. It isn't just like some convenience that we enjoy no. I worked my tail off to ensure that was the case we we beans and rice for years because making the mortgage payment was difficult or the clunker beat her up vehicles. Because we couldn't afford anything nicer we never went out because we frankly couldn't afford it. When i had to go on a trip we questioned whether or not. I should go. Because i didn't have the money to pay for fuel. I made sacrifices. My wife made sacrifices to make this a reality and our life is better because we're teaching our children things that they should learn. Not the things that are mandated to and they're not being programmed and they're not being brainwashed by something i don't agree with now inevitably when i say that people say well aren't you brainwashing them. Yeah i guess technically you say that's the case but guess what that's my responsibility and that's my obligation is the father. I'm supposed to teach them teach them right. Pete's them right from wrong. teach them truth. Teach them the way the world works. That is actually my authority. That is my responsibility so although you might say. I'm programming my children right. That's exactly what i'm doing and that's my job as a father in for you women who are listening. That is your job as your children's mother so get after it. And stop outsourcing every possible experience and learning opportunity to somebody you don't even know and instead take upon your own shoulders and and witnessed the the power of teaching your own children. How this world works. You can do it. you can do it. You're fully qualified. You can do it make it happen. And if you're a schoolteacher you stand up against this stuff and you start. Doing what you know is right all right where we at here. I think we're on number nine. Build up reserves number nine build up reserves k. So i'm talking about cash. I'm talking about food. I'm talking about provisions talking about firearms and ammunition again. Are you going to say this. Learn stuff at no. It's not it's just being prepared and if you never happened have to dip into your food storage. Excuse me congratulations. That's a good thing if you never have to use your firearm to defend yourself congratulations. I hope that's the case. I i pray every night. That i don't ever have to use my firearm indefens- for somebody breaking in or a violent encounter. I pray every day that i don't have to do that but you can be damned certain that i'm going to be prepared to do it. Should that situation arise. And i think we would all as men be better off if we learned to build up reserves that we may need. We might not need it but we may need. This is insurance okay so build up your cash reserves. Start putting money in that safe. Build up the food storage. Build up the firearms build up the ammunition by win. It's there and available by by nonperishable foods. Set those aside and your seller or your or your attic or whatever and and build your bilger resources. We talk about Producing sorry lost my train of thought. There we talk about producing a produce you're capable of producing and providing more than just yourself and your and even your immediate family like start producing and that means stockpiling and putting things away for a rainy day. Cash bridget provision food. The things that you might need and if you don't need them okay good. It's still wasn't wasted. Effort was a valuable exercise in restraint. 'cause you're not spending every dollar that you have and it's a valuable exercise organization and overabundance overabundance just abundance so that you can take care of yourself when things are scarce and whether the happens in the next twelve months or the next twelve years at some point things will be scarce. Something will happen within the country. you'll be laid off. The economy will tank. Something will happen. And i want you to be ready for that day again. Whether it's in the next twelve days twelve months or twelve years all right in the last one here guys. this is This is very broad again but leading your family your neighbors and your communities. Well people are relying upon you. Everybody's scared they're nervous. They're anxious they're angry. They're upset. There's a lot of contention and animosity and bitterness going on. And if you incorporate these nine previous principles that i shared with you then you are going to be able to leave your family. Well because you're not so highly focused on yourself you're not so wrapped up in barely getting by but you're thriving and your excelling in your learning new skills and you have your provision and you and your building confidence because you're getting strong. Well now you can lead others with clarity and focus and leave the emotions at the door. And not get everybody riled up and lead them people are looking to you. Your children might my kids. My four kids. I see them. I watched them. They look at me. They watch me. I see them watching me for how i will react and how i respond to situations. Nfl wild and crazy and immature out of control. And guess what that's what they're learning to do. If i'm not leading my wife with clarity and focus and dignity and respect and honor and steadfastness.

We'll get into more of that in about the middle of this episode. Okay on the radio. Command emphasized pop pizza shop. All right. welcome to pop punk and pizza. I'm of course. Jacques l'amour your host so excited to have you here for this episode. Now we are Or i should say. I'm pleased to welcome eric. Dalton matt and brandon of email emo alternative rock band I believe it's. I forgot to actually ask them this before we went live. But i believe it's the mangoes and i could have completely butchered that just now but we'll get to that in a minute so the was from scranton. Pennsylvania to the podcast. Let's bring him on. Welcome guys so did i say it wrong. Is it magas magas. Magas pulse was having. Yeah i was gonna say. I was like i 'cause i i was on the phone with your manager one day and he was telling the name to me and this has been a while back now so i can't remember exactly how eric pronounced it but i knew it was something along those lines and i did watch the acoustic session that you guys put out not too long ago to and you know I know like eric right. In the beginning he said the name of the band. And i'm like i should know how to pronounce it by back so But before we get into the thick of things Let's go around and everyone introduce themselves just so everyone kind of knows what you sound like google. Eric you can go first all right. I'm eric miller. I sing for the magas. I am great. I from my name's matt jenkins and i play the guitar the nine dalton risking your and tar as well awesome and we have almost everyone here. Who are we missing. Luke says it's always the bass player darn bass player's man. I'm just getting i. I know this is like a scooper stereotypical question. But i'm honestly very curious to know where the mogg was where that name comes from. Because i was doing some some googling before we went on. And i found a couple different things attached to that name. So i'm i'm curious to know like if it comes from any of those things i found online i could. I could take this one away. The short answer is it comes from the last of the mohicans. The movie okay. After the antagonise nagua so the long version of the is when we start the magas texted seven people in everyone said yes on one of those people who is not currently in the band but can't do a couple of practices friend. Tommy you can't comes from a gigantic family. And all of his uncle's go around when they were kids and they would call themselves. The mock was and so it was his idea And then we stuck with it. Because i don't know seem unique and we just got used to it okay. I wasn't sure if there was like a deep meaning because like just reading about the the novel it sounds super interesting. Because it's actually set at the time of the french and indian war so we're talking like that was was that the seventeen hundreds of the eighteen hundreds i was forget. I think it's the eighteen hundreds right right before the american revolution. Ten points for dolan. I was gonna say we're we're getting a history lesson. Here is seventeen fifty four to seventeen sixty three. Yeah i I do remember now. Now it's coming back to me now and thinking back to history class in high school where they talk about how it was like what really led up to the revolutionary war for history strict podcast. I can talk all i made. I love history. So you know i would be more than okay with that honestly by history or the i always think of the ancient aliens guy you know history channel or whatever. Is it from ancient aliens. I don't know something but we all know who we're talking about the guy that's like totally fried looking was oh man. Well that is cool. The now i figured it was. It was probably the novel that it was attached to. But for some reason. I just had to know it was It was like itching at meet a nel. So you know you guys are from the scranton pennsylvania area which is where we all know. The office is based for the tv show. So is anyone fans of the show. and how do locals feel about the office in the connection to scranton. Yeah so i was one of the people who never watched it because of the connection. I just never interested. I was like you know what. I'd never stop hearing about this. So hard like watching it But then i watched it. And then i am now fan of the show. That's funny so was it. Like i don't really care about my hometown. I don't want to watch this. Or what was the turnoff. I don't know. I think it was just the constant lake. Oh like the office. Yeah every time. I said i was from scranton area and i'm sure you still get to this day even though the tv show. Isn't you know it's yeah. I mean There obviously the the shows no more. But it's a huge part of pop culture now It's always reminds me of like win. Friends ended and that like carried on forever and then i feel like after friends. It was the office that like took over pop culture. You know how. How about dalton matt or brandon. How about you guys. How do you feel about the office. So i never watched like season one. I don't know why never got into it. I think i just kind of missed it throughout high school but it was always like a thing going through college like him from scranton because like all like the office you know scrambling that's that's great. I mean i watched it like when i like. I like legitimately be office all the time and then i kind of lost a little bit because ladies said everybody talks about is the only thing that's interesting that's ever took place in life reggae cooper seafood and like poor. Richard's like again. Like i still love the show and i thought it was great and a lot of the places where they talked about our in scranton. You know the people that were in the show. That guy plays kevin. He's like a huge hit around. Here he comes back and he bartends like our biggest weekends shit crazy. Yeah so how awesome you guys should do. A like a an email alternative version of the theme song. Just you know win win when shows come back and you know you you hit the road or whatever that can be like your your stick like your opener lightly. Yeah we're from scranton. Yeah we know and then you know then just start playing. You know to song and then be like okay. That's all we wanna hear now about the office. That's it no more office talk. No more office reference. We've heard it all. Believe me. But i i not seen every single episode of the office. I've only seen. I can't even tell you how many but i've definitely watched the show and always cracked up watching it. But i was just curious like how locals felt about the show since you guys are actually from scranton Ed's cool to know that some of those places actually exist I do and the tv show. They mentioned our high school high school annual the across the street so it was but besides the office like what else does scranton have going for. It how big is scranton. Like the eighth largest indian pennsylvania. Tell you. It's the six. Because i looked up in the world i mean granted is very. It's just the perfect time to write email music. It's except you know drink have a good time with some new people. A lot of people are here but man. There's there's not a lot to do around here you know it's just all that Damage that the office did to you here. And that's why there's that the you know the the imo feeling to you know the manga was music. It's just you know all because of the office is all as the office so you know like this last week or two especially this week. It seems like there's been more like tours announce and and festivals and things like that For the summer and for the fall. And i'm curious like how are you guys feeling about it 'cause when i see these announcements and things now it just feels so weird to me like shows like this is. This is a thing like it's just like it's it's like i'm excited but then i'm like i just feel weird like how are you guys feeling about it. Yeah ready to go. And it's weird because the same thing. I can't personally picture myself right now. To show the nelson nothing. I wanna do more bingo players. Show i mean in terms of like. When i'm i'm happy about this about like joe's going back now i'm kind of point where i'm i'm watching to see how it goes in the next month. See who's still. we said. Almost who ceases who still standing still open. It took like venues for size of the ban. You know because now everybody's alive outplay. I going open four you know. Xyz band or go tour and do all. The subjects had trying to navigate that whole landscape moving forward into the fawns ing lino. What the funeral. Maria go ready to go. Play those your fans a little trick them. Yeah that's the problem is is everyone is ready. You know and it's like okay. How do we handle all of these bands. That are coming at us. Like how do we get. How do we get our name in the hat for you. Know mapping out our own whether it's a tour or is just like weekend small weekend runs in life. It's like how do you especially we got. I thought it was weird because the government or was it the national government coming out. Zdc's saying oh wear masks if you're like baxter vaccinated right. Do i wear a mask in this place. And i walk in. Nobody's i'm asking then the next place he goes through everybody's masked up and it's probably the same with venues it's like you're trying to sail through the murky waters at this point. Yeah i just wanna play guitar from. Yeah absolutely absolutely how about you eric. How our view. What's been your reaction seeing the the announcements of of festivals and tours. Yeah it's exciting for me for sure us. Good to just see it. I mean it of trickled in a little bit. But i think especially in the last month or so. You saw a lot more volume as far as announcements but the one thing. I can't stop thinking about is just the fact that the very last thing that we're all going to be doing again is packing into a room sweating on each other and like screaming in each other's faces so i'm not sure how the beginning of that gonna look once it comes back but yeah like it'd be hopeful honestly. I feel i don't know if it's called. Psd or ptsd. Or what but like you just bringing that up right now. The whole packed in a room sweating on each other like a kind of makes me cringe allies. Like i'm kinda scared like it's is it illegal to excite him. Yeah right. That's why. That's why i feel so weird about all of these announcements here. I live an hour south of chicago. And they just announced the lala palooza lineup today and they. I'm pretty sure also said that it's going to be full capacity. I could be wrong. But and i think there's something about getting a covid test to like before being allowed to come in. I don't quote me on that. But i'm pretty sure i read that it's going to be like a full capacity thing and that alone made me think like like i'm almost like really introverted. At this point. I don't wanna be like wall to wall against people like of that thought. Like oh no. I'm going to get something like yeah. It'd be like we're gonna be you'll be that guy was like constantly like putting hand sanitizer. This is going to be like misting. That's like i'll have a kennel lysol. Just like sh- no. Yeah but anyway. I was just curious like to to know if i was the only one feeling that way. Not like yeah. I'm interested to see what the festival shows You know even if everything's back to normal. I'm interested to see like actually see how people stand now. You know if they go rush up to the stage i want to see if people instinctively stanford their part now. Yeah right and and if if they're even going to be able to or actually better yet. It'll be interesting to see what the turnout will actually be. Yeah it'll be interesting to see how many people are actually way too afraid to go. And then i suppose that would leave room for distancing. Even though they're saying it's not necessary but Yeah it'll be interesting to say the least so you know. I was reading on facebook. I think it was yesterday when i posted about the live. This live stream and podcast and you guys shared it. You said you've been working hard behind the scenes on on some cool content. So i'm like what are they talking about. I want like. Are you going to shed some light on this or not like what's what's happening. Yeah well back in january. I guess we released our last one of us flying in remember november and we went back in with with nick. Bruce adds new music and we have spent move past Now six months la working on preparing all of that for the near future can't necessarily have a date yet but we have a bunch of videos. Amazon photo shoots And working now with restrictions hopefully being lifted fully organic maybe stores show. It's been we've been kind of quiet. We were like every couple of days posting kind of bailing. Always like you're facing worry here. You know recently than once once a week. Just touching base. Their fans we non spell it a quiet. But it's really just because we're working our asses off. Stop you know a lot of stuff behind the gotta go into this place. Shoot a video. You know this redacted song here not not be able to talk about that and it's like me. I am like ready to lake. Tell everybody and i can't. I have to like put like clamp on my mouth. 'cause i i'm so excited for the new stuff adds example. Feels like your jacket at the about. But we've been kinda team for awhile and we we light sometimes not just we also hate it is we. We don't like jagged dragging it out you know. But because of cohen because of the way things had kind of lined up You know we had. We've had so much content available at certain point you like. What are we going to do so we decided to do the same thing. No and that was a lotta fun. These equality was really good on that. By that was top notch steam development. They do a hell of a job here in scranton. They help us out on a lot of the stuff like especially with one of coming out that like be setup. It was a cool cafe in our town and they set it all up man. It looks really really hit that. Like mtv unplugged sort of thing that we were trying report. Yeah yeah yeah. And for that. I am i interface bunch of mics and they did all the video stuff i just said to them they were at. That's awesome. i was gonna say that was one of the as far as like sound quality. Well even the camera work was really good too but it was one of the best i've seen like through this pandemic no problem So now nick. You're talking about nick from around. Not neck deep listening to me man overboard. Right hundred papa. Nick is that what you can home. Daddy doubt now. I have all kinds of questions. You're gonna be calling him daddy. Nick you know. I mean what's what's the exchange here fellas or two. I wanna do. Do we them young at the first time the lumber yard you've come in like Took the kids to the amish market here. We start falling daddy lights. Oh my god you're all up late just joking around and how good time all excited mentally the so just bust each other constantly only work on things very very indepth. But it's a bridge britney brittany edwards. Says she definitely wants to know this whole daddy. So so you're saying so. You're saying if i wanted to work with nick and if i really wanted to grab his attention i could send him an email or a message saying hi daddy. You think you think that that'll be. Yeah you'll be fine. No he's definitely going to read it. My god man just Just say cracking me up man. Oh my gosh that's too good. So what is what is your besides daddy. What is your favorite thing about working with nick. Like what is what is his forte or his signature are mark every producer engineer Kind of has their their signature when it comes to like when you're listening to something that they've collaborated on. You can always tell like. Oh i can totally tell that nick did this or travis barker did this or you know what i mean like. What's what's his his signature on his his work. It's a really good question. Have vocally like there's a lot there. But i mean i don't know if i had to say i i think he's just has so much experience in a like he understands what works and what doesn't and he also has a really good ability I mean obviously. I don't know i'm not in the room. He works with every band but just from working with them ourselves. Like you get the sense like he understands how to play to the best of people early. Read the room and understand because you know he definitely loves to bus left the bus him and like we have a very fun environment but the work always gets done. I mean it's always that i. Yeah and i'm sure not every single ban that walks in there's like always just like saint stupid stuff to each other and whatnot but don't don't say no i think that's part of it you know he really Definitely definitely read us quickly We worked with them the first time And then from there. He just has a lot of experience writing. Good songs huge while here. You go david David andrea's is that how you say his last name I'm assuming he's in the band deer spring yes. He says he was one hundred percent that way With them so awesome. I mean i think the biggest thing musically with like nick is he focuses in. It's a lot of things that we've been trying to do. Too like the hooks of the course and making it sound like we really focus on course folks in like bats where i think when you take sonically where nikolic thrives is that. Everything just feels very important in those courses. I think that that really shows latest album or light. There's these big and thematic things that really shine through at least when he's working with us. That seems to be the number one thing that we focus on trying to really hammer down like article. What's what's the real important part of the song. What's what we what. What's i like our tagline. That people are pumping their fists and chat and email. Her in another thing is kinda just playing out. The last point i had is definitely. He's he has the ability to tell you what you are and what you're not you went in. We had a song with actions. Speak louder than words that initially had seven four breakdown in it just like gasoline. What's up with this breakdown. I as a as a singer. I went in there. You know i was always a singer like a choir singer and I never really had like a ruffin rowdy voice but when we started pop punk band. That's kind of what i tried to do. And he was like. You don't sing like that like just like sing normally And it helped me sing better but it just because i had this idea in my head. He's like no. You guys aren't that yeah absolutely. Yeah i remember I I went through a phase where i was obsessed with the band mast and i I like made it a point to sound as much Like tony lovato. As like when. I was singing. You know and It it didn't it. Didn't i couldn't do it because that wasn't what i naturally sounded like right so it's It's always good when someone can kind of give you that outside perspective but but but how does he present when when like. You're talking about that. That breakdown is it just kind of like dude this blows like sometimes maybe but i just gives his honest opinion as a songwriter. Yeah very very experienced at doing that and after working with them. It's like i. I don't write songs osama any mark some like this court are. It's not needed. You know not very good at creating a sign that makes sense. It's a lot of joking around with. There's no bullshit when it goes out like very much like we we get down like if something's not right this is like gonna cut that and lego part if you off but also you've got to trust the producer trust basically a six-member band at the point with opinions on our music and when he says something you kinda like take a step back and you like yeah. You know you're right. let's let's go at. It gets very open and honest. You know and i think it has to be to make the best music audible. Yeah absolutely see. We got eric or no. Now luke bass player right different. This is okay. He says eric is such a king. I wanna give him a big smooch. Allow that all right. I don't have a smooch sound effect. But i have one out maybe go All right so we're we're about halfway through the show guys and i I gotta make sure that I we recognize our our sponsor for this episode which is pop punk takeout.

It was i think it was even before the new year and they were like. So what do you think of this idea. And i'm like this is really cool. Like they're like. Do you think it would be a a a a successful thing and i think it was like. Yeah i absolutely.

Oh yeah. here's scott right now Who's who i was just talking about. Part of pop punk takeout. He says. I hope to see the mafia the mogg was in a pop punk takeout in the future. See so there. You go All right we've got stretch I was gonna say someone had question here. Okay here we go. How does the sound of the new record. Compared to the last one Same kind of vibe but more focused or new direction of sorts is what david wants to know so drums not city. What's that drums city drum city. It's really just. Is it just brandon the whole time playing drums just and eric and eric is just yelling over it. You'd like a crash once in a while. That's funny so so. Yeah what is compared to your last ep. That was just put out Last year one of us is lying. What does this upcoming ep Sound like i would definitely say sadder and a little more complex man. I'm sad now darker it's like it's i think. It's a little more mature in lyrical content. That we go about. It's a little bit you know. It's really not so much. A complete departure from last is not like it's not. There's a lot of ties to you. Heard on one of us is lying but it is a bit more of a darker up like like a heavier but not super heavy more complex feel to it and yeah we definitely leaned. I think more into that I guess like that glum sound. You know where where. It's a little bit more. That like You know drum guitar. Driven like kind of rock and roll. Has you know we into Lyrically reflected a lot more on on some our own personal experiences in the past year. And a half and what we've been through in a week dug deep as a band in trying to really understand what it is. We sound like what it is that the fans billion joy and trying to take that experience gained possession. Naked away For him to help us. Take it to that next level and make action just change studios He's now the gravel house in new jersey. And and when we change that pseudo there's also the opportunity to get you know more unique. We have more time more opportunity to do certain things that maybe have jade before. Some when i mentioned drum city. I mean the drums of this record specifically are some of the best dave ever heard in terms of in terms of our experience of recording it. And the salad guy. anything what better equipped married across the south. We ended up having a record. That sounds like more polished arrive. And we've added some more years into into the mix in terms of like people hearing the fish prize. We have more input of the more people. And i think that's helped us really define what you know what it's gonna be so excited for a rom. Yeah you got me all amped up about a two and and so as david. He says he loves the sound of that. Can't wait he said. Maybe nick will give us a preview. When we go back in a few dave in your springs to. I think they were just there. Maybe last week or two weeks talking okay. Nice nice Okay here's another question from brittany Said do any of you guys have a have a must have or ritual for a show or after don't know drinking drinking before and after or just after you know during after all the time a couple a couple shots of what what's schnapps as schnapps. Okay yup. I didn't know people still drink schnapps something eric brought out. And then we haven't stopped. Eric was on accident. Okay so so. Schnapps is a ritual. What else i used to do. I is the do. I always had the car mostly by myself. Because they don't like thank got saying the drums But one thing i do. I do because i haven't done since cohen but i used to play that shoes on Which is like a unique without always like end up messing something albert you excited and we used to play like cover shows a lot like in the beginning phases of our band in three hour shows and i'd be like my feet bleeding by the also advert full on original stats like Probably go back to that little. I just love the feel like a like my bare feet. Dancing penalites to enjoy that. I mean i honestly Being a drummer a lot of drummers. I know either. Don't like to wear shoes while they're playing. I've met a lot of drummers like that and they also always wear shorts. Yeah i also very short sea. Because he hits his just die. Rooms were britney says takes them puppies off some are. she's all about the summer of it. Kind of sir. No go ahead. I was just going to say also kind of feel like i take a few minutes to just like totally isolate myself before we actually go on. I kinda just like doing that. Yeah i don't know. I think i in my head thinking i'm like getting like quite literally getting into like a certain zone. I think it helps me. Actually is get focused and try to put on the best show. Yeah absolutely you kinda have to switch gears especially when you're you know you're a a diy ban. You're doing everything yourself. You're loading in your gear. Getting all your stuff set up You know you. You're like you're multitasking. You're thinking about all these things you know. And then you're you're seeing all these people at the show. And or maybe you got to talk to the stage manager or the promoter or whatever it is so there's just a bunch of things going around your kinda like all these things going on in your mind and and You kind of have to like yeah. You have to like calm yourself down before you go on and you're like okay remember. This is what it's about it's about this moment on stage. It's not about oh shit. I hope we have enough change at the merch table. Like like things things like. That are oak crap. I hope we didn't forget the credit card reader or whatever you know It's all those little things. Yeah and van full. A none says pre show routines are beautiful and unique. I absolutely agree on each one of us our own little thing before we go on i would never call my late appreciate ritual or anything like that. I have a reaching. I think i just double check. Triple check everything. I like to go around and talk to everybody in the before errands bartenders. Like two quaint everybody in the senate. Yeah i mean different things that we do for show amped up and get in that mindset. Well ethnic plugging started doing more. We only again We would like after shells hang out with fans like the eventually have driven us the bike merge you recited moore's anyway flag hanging out. Our big thing is definitely like experience. We love hanging out with our fans and even you know that show the next day or whatever a so so what has been Your have you guys done any tours or just regional show sir. What's what was your experience before kovin. No mainly leg regional stuff like playing around our area like new york. Philadelphia began to new jersey and stuff like that so basically young tristate area of the northeast and just trying to his many of those markets as we possibly can meal you know himes kinda tough with money getting over to california in chicago and places that it's tough when you're doing. Diy up so we really focused on getting a solid of basically could in the northeast and we can sort of branch out from there. Yeah it's like where you guys are at your in a perfect area to to hit all those you know major points that dc and Yet new york obviously and not far from the other. You've got obviously other major cities in pennsylvania as well. There's a lot. There's a lot of places in philadelphia with a lot of people in our scene. I lived in philly for five years. And we we just have like a decent amount of connections that just one of my favorite places to play the energy. Philadelphia's like it's like nowhere else to me it's just like a. It's different vibes like golf of the year. Like amazing people. Everyone's ready to go crazy severe. Michelle yeah philly is is kind of like kind of like chicago where it's kind of like an epicenter of of pop punk gorgeous music in general but especially punk oriented music there's just been so many fr- from the you know the smaller level to the to the bigger level. There's so many that. Have that have come out of the the philly area or even pittsburgh you know 'cause what anti flag is from pittsburgh right. I believe so. Yeah i think i know. That's that's going off into a little bit sub-genre they're not specifically pop punk but You know but i mean the punk. Rock legends if Let's see have you all thought about a viral show or online show. Do any streams. We try to do a what we've looked into. Try to sound like a whole on. Before the acoustic set we actually looked into doing a legitimate. Like kind of venue venue in doing a livestream that show and might time and got into it and understand. Enhance the scope of what's available to us currently and You know y Really realistically do at this time. We didn't feel like we give out the quality. Private wanted to that. Make sense We kind of wanted to make it as best we could and we felt that at that time of the video were our best bench finances at the time on even just finances long following late. There's a lot of not many places that were willing to just let bands like off the street. Come in and do a show that you know. If you're silverstein you can go and play a viral show in seven different cities or whatever you want but you know when you're sitting in scranton these bars struggling for anything open weren't along you want it and it's tough or any of the venues around your were just strictly closed up right became like a logistical nightmare. Even try to go viral. Charlotte is guys. You know the real thing is coming back shortly. And i think we've waited that long this point. Would you wait to get back on stage improv. And i i feel like at this point with all the big festivals and tours that have been announced for the summer and the fall. I think it's all go at this point. It's like it just needs to just needs to happen. I feel like it. That's that's enough there. Yeah exactly so. I know like with with you guys. You're more on the mo alternative and not so much pop punk. So i'm curious like where does the pop punk come in for you guys as far as like influencing and things like that. Where does your point wounds. Yeah we have our like our whole thing. We wanted to start pop punk because we love. How punk bands. The thing is the music we just rope turned more into like an email at the rob drawl all vans of as well. Yeah i mean. I my favorite band all times. The wonder years. And i grew up. Like when i was located at literally went out and got like from the jewelry and i love the early pang of the disco and listening to you. Know three cheers for sweet revenge. Hollywood ipod the type of stuff that we all. Listen do you know growing up and you know we have our branches but that was that was where the pop punk sort of thing came in your mind. I mean your a big mayday parade out. Newsradio own straight up like may not go a new New orleans real frantic frantic both bands. You know weren't tore essentially if you for that. That's a different types of influences to like. I grew up like my dad played. Eighties heavy metal and stuff like that. And you like a lot of flights new metal on that and then these guys introduced me to call the pop punk band one years. And stop me and erica. Big suga for i was gonna say eric how about you where where does pop punk fit into your your life. Yeah i think It was pretty much everything. I listened to at the time of starring the band and i would also say. It's the reason that i wanted to know in a full band again because we used to always play with each other when we were like twelve thirteen years old and then managing started doing like acoustic gigs. But we always had the edge to get a full band back together. Now we're all older. We could play up bars and whatnot At around that time. I was listening to lot of years. story so far state champs And then i think what happened was we tried to write music like that. And then the more wrote the more. We just kinda wrote stuff. That wasn't that. And i think it just instead of fighting it we kind of just let it happen and ended up where we are now that that is that is the key right there. is is not fighting that and just letting it letting it flow you know not stopping it and being like this doesn't sound like the story so far. That's not what i wanted to ask you. Gotta you gotta break a break past that point and find find your sound and it sounds like you guys are constantly working on that which is awesome. Yeah i think at this point we even. Would you say i would just say that we were coming up with lake lady said not buying. We didn't just like now fight like we kind of leaned into a lot of the stuff we were writing just came so like not easy but it was easier process than it was trying right. We have some songs that we've never released that were more pop punk songs and the songs that we put out in the songs that we thought were good. We're much more along the lines of what we did in than those pop punk songs cop weren't they weren't us a lot comes back to nick. Yeahs saying it's this really you really pop off. Yeah we have a lot of that to the first hour. We sat down neck us. Like i remember him asking who you know. Maybe we imagined armies along with her that long lights and we named like that timer alley punk bands evening bunch and and at the end of that. I only like three days and we came out with like it's not that familiar with everything you know how however turned up in terms also about it. Yeah i think at this point we even make it a point to do the opposite so we try to not sound like i mean that. That's super super important. You know so What oh do you guys fit into like any what what are some like pop punk stereotypes that you think actually aren't stereotypes or any stereotypes that you fit into. You know what i mean like when it comes to you know like being the What's the word i'm looking for. I guess stereotype. Obviously i was trying to think of an example. But i can't think of one you guys know what i mean like goofy like. We're kinda goofy. Feel like yeah for dark. Soma by lyrics music is like i like that you're damn these users that and we are sat. Beat you like you. Could you could coin that somehow aimo songs pop punk attitude or pop punk site. Oh yeah something along something. Along those lines awesome well We're we're getting close to time so that Else you guys want to plug or i i know. Obviously you can't announce a release date yet for this new ep. But maybe there's something else that you could fill us in on before you know like there's gonna be a single coming soon right. Yeah there's a lot of the worst. I know i can always done things like that. We do have some new merged in the work excited about and this is merged like free release of possibly the next the next cycle so maybe summer thing. I think we're looking at doing mega couple summer days. The magas might might see that coming up soon because we now we have some time together with the summer That and eric just finished law school. We're proud of him for that law. School congratulations so proud. Have low you so so real real quick so you graduated law school now. Do you have to take the bar exam. Is that how that works. Yeah yeah that's two months from okay just to get licensed. Well i mean hell getting through law. School alone is in quite a mountain. So for you man. That's also thank you. Just you know you're making it sound like it's no big deal. But what did you focus on a certain type of law or kind of general. You could Maybe specialized a little bit. But they got a lot of that comes from postgraduate experience. Because you know can only do so much like an internship or niclas. that's true. I didn't have any Didn't have too many Strong interests but you know. that's awesome. And congratulations thank you yeah. you're welcome. sorry. I didn't i didn't mean to cut you off talking about You know the new merchant things like that. Yeah we're just kind of cruise in the summer with. We have a lot of stuff that we will probably behind the scenes. Soon you know We have some videos. We sell to shoot for extra content things like that Or trying to ramp up our tiktok game so as are working on it and you know. I'm excited in tennessee. How the summer goes With other bands and they're really suffering idle waiting for that next big release. I guess i assumed that with everything lot advance would be you recording all the time and since january sitting around waiting for something like really blow me away you know Some scientists are brings me.

Think somebody from everything post malone's teaming up with yeager meister to help artists and venues that took a hit from the corona virus. And i think that's it on the headlines. All right here we go. Matt ramsey from old dominion is a great talk. Enjoy this all right. With matthew ramsey from old dominion. I guess the question is before we start this in depth like. What are your friends. Call us a matter. Matthew what do you feel most comfortable. Both it's both have gone through my whole life with both. I mean like if you meet someone though and they're like. Hey i'm jim you are. I usually say matthew but Then there's there's been people that have that it feels weird for them to call me matthew but like my family growing up. Mom dad grandparents called me matthew for example Thomas rhett if someone calls him. Thomas he knows. They're not that close to him right because his name is not thomas. Yeah he's like so the people that know me it's like tr. Thomas rhett because that's what he was called as a kid that last name is they come up and they go thomas how you are hourly no. You don't really know me would do sure so have told you the story about So i mean. I was matt for a long time. My family was matthew. They'll call me. Matthew matt moore was on my friends and everything and then i was in virginia record. Music on my own and Was putting out cds and playing stuff and had website and Giving my space. I had a my space all that stuff and then I started getting some messages from some people that were looking for. Different matt ramsey. Who happened to be in the adult film Always around orange star. Yeah so us and people were like. I've really like your music. But you're not the matt ramsey more just heads up so i started then to delineate Matthew is just set myself apart a little bit. Does that matt ramsey's still exist in a way that does Well no it's not confusing. He actually has another name more famous name but he when he performs certain type of pornography he goes by matt ramsey. So says it's fun fact. Yeah i'm not gonna go on and you'll get some interesting if you do but when you were in virginia making music about what year was that when you when you were dedicated to music but you were not in nashville. That was probably two thousand and so you're eighteen. Nineteen twenty years old. No twenty three. You mean yeah yeah probably twenty. How am i now. I'm obviously forty-three. So so if that's the case then why not move to nashville then. Did you have a different career path in mind where you were going to do it from virginia. Was it slightly different than what you've expected. Yeah well i mean. I went to art school degree in illustration and I ca- i was passionate. I am still passionate about both things. And i kinda got to the end of college and thought i can't half ass both of these things i need to focus on one and music wound up being the thing shows so then i sort of did i made like a self funded you know. Cd and and just got to the point. Where i felt like i had exhausted. Everything in that area and played everywhere could and you know made my money back on my cd and it was time to to take another step the going into art school. What was that plan. Let's say the music thing didn't work out or you were at the crossroads. And you didn't choose. Music gets the question like what was the plan with illustration what what was a career outlook there. I mean there. Are you know you start to realize start to realize my senior year when you're you're kind of just doing all these independent studies and things and you start to realize that all your professors are starting to view as as their competition. So you start to see like well. I'm going to be able to maybe teach or you know. pick up. some you know magazine illustrations or drawing. I'm talking to me like a dumb guy. Because what i and painting drawing printmaking stuff like that. So painting a picture on a canvas. Yeah you can do that. You're a good artists that i can hold my own. Yeah do you do that for fun at all. I yes i mean for. I just painted recently a picture for the first time in a while Which was very therapeutic. And i don't want to do it more. I posted a little thing on my own instagram. But it's gone now but If i was naked. I took several years of figure drawing classes where someone would come in and we had those in college and they'll be like fifty bucks because naked and i was broke. But i wasn't dat broke right. I always thought about those people like then. You must need this money. I thought the same way in two ways either. I was envious of the fact that they had no inhibition at all right that they would go. Hey whatever it's to draw something. I'll show my weiner right. I was so embarrassed and instill still so embarrassed our weiner on the show i i'm i'm joking. I guess i mean you've got be like. I'm joking but we had a thing. This is when we were in austin. And i was pretty early in my career. I just started a bill. My syndication company. We were doing mostly pop and hip hop stations. We're you know at the time. It was a wild and crazy guy. Now i'm just a guy that gets trouble. Because i say things sometimes at the end she doesn't want me to say but then i was just being idiot for no other reason than just being an idiot and so we did a bit where we had an artist come in and the loser had to get naked be drawn and i lost who and had to sit in a room closet and he in him i remember i buy for no other reason drawing right he had eyeball my. Yeah so you did you allow what i avoided for years radio segment. Wow you face your fear though. So that's good right. So would you do that to me if i if i like. I would like to pose nude and have you draw picture. I don't think that's pretty cool though. 'cause that an artist musically you right you right reform like it's it's more of a three sixty when it comes to art with you. I was just that out of my brain is is is the one that's active analytical side You know i mean. I can but you know. I'm not like into math and stuff like that. But dave haywood A guy who. I'm friends with who. I mean creative but also extremely Linear as well right. He's able to. I sometimes can't do. I can't balance both riding time. He's the guy who's who's exceptional at that in your band. Because everybody kind of has roles and old dominion. like what is your role. Creatively in that group creatively. I mean it's tough because we are. That's what makes it really hard to be in the span. Sometimes is is. Everyone is extremely creative so You know at any more. I would say that. It's kind of evolved and i've recently learned especially in this last album in the process of making it that my role is not necessarily in the tracking room while we're recording. It's it's in the control room with our producer. Shane and i. i'm. I'm a better guide in that way and And and i'm i'm a strong writer i think too so. I think i have a strong voice in the writing of our songs but everyone does. Everyone is so talented. Do you have to sit and isn't very frustrated. You have to admit yourself a bit when you go to record an album because when you ride it and you make you know your work tape or your demo and you have. You can get us and wanted to sound like but then. Shane comes in Shane mcnally who obviously is is the best at what does yeah i i mean i don't. I don't think you would have a problem with saying he's better being a producer within are the. Oh yeah we're gonna make sure called and if he's like. Hey this is how i see it like. I really am passionate about this. Do you ever have to submit like you know what you know what you're doing and i only kind of know what i'm doing so i'm going to do that. Yeah definitely but we have a close enough relationship that if we still we'll go down that road if we if we're not fully believing in it and i'm not fully believing it but he strongly is will go down that road for however long it takes until it until we see it or we go you're wrong and he's great at going. Okay thanks for trying and we do the same thing. He'll he'll listen to us our ideas and you know if we are feeling at one way. He'll say i trust you guys. Let's let's go down that road until he sees it or doesn't it seems this is just my memory years later that he was involved really early with you guys. Yeah he was You know we were writing music with him songs Before he had any success. I think when i met him he had one. He had just gotten Leeann womack song recorded his first one and you know we were all just broke. You know he. I think he had just like moved out of his car into a house. You know so yeah. He's been around for us for since the beginning. I want to go back to in virginia. The first instrument you pick up the drums was a drunk him. Why the drums When i was older brother and He's he's four years older than me and he had a friend. Who was the drummer. and it. Just enamored me. Just they he would come over to our house and says drum kit up and i would sneak down there and look at it. And then he played like a drum solo at the middle school talent show or whatever it blew the whole places mind and i just saw how that affected everyone and So i just was drawn to banging on for their bands that you listen to in drummed along with and you like the most as a fourteen fifteen year old kid. Re-thought all right. If i'm going to do this yeah. I mean at that point was starting to get into Is starting to get into a lot of grunge. I mean for me when i first learned. Chili peppers. metallica. Because that's an easy intros total. Yeah yeah so. I had at that point once i started really digging in and playing along to music I had a i was. My parents had a basement and i had a drum kit down there and i had guitar hinson guitars and and kind of like split. Even then i half of the basement was art supplies and and campuses and things and half of it was musical instruments. So i would just can't live down in the basement and play along to mostly things like pearl jam and nirvana and smashing pumpkins and stuff like that. When asked this question. I'm being respectful and possibly can with this question because what happened to me may happen to you but being art kid music kid you could beat up. I got beat up. But i definitely I mean i got tugged on a little bit Actually ended up. I've never really talked about this. Ever but Actually ended up getting plastic surgery on my ears because They yanked on quite a bit and they they were like. I always think about this. It must have been really bad. Because i kind of don't think about it that much but it must have been really bad for me to beg my parents to fix this problem and for them to go through with it because i have kids and and i know if the if a kid my kid in the sixth grade was begging you know me to physically change them because of what people were doing it would must have been heartbreaking for my parents and i know it's tough for me so they did so for a while there yes I went through. Some you know some harder punishments there. I suffered similar consequences for not being a finger quotes normal kid right but you're cooler than i and that's why i mean you're like cooler and you're talented not like did you like break the mold where you're there he's talented. Let's just celebrate him. I mean i did wind up. Once i got into high school. I was kind of friends with everybody. You know i. I was friends with the athletes and i was also in the marching band. So you know. I kind of made peace with everyone it so when did you transition from being the percussion guy to kind of go on. Aren't even really want to do that much anymore. Like i wanna play guitar. Yeah well my first band was born out of the marching band because the whole drumline we were such good friends And we all wanted to be in a band. But we were all drummers and so it was you know one guy going. Well i have. I have a guitar and another guy. Saying i will. I'll have the drum kit. And i was like confined to base. I'll borrow base. I borrowed a bass from somebody that was just. We wanted to play music. But we only thing when you had to play drums so we just kind of learned together and you know just by ear figuring out that so then once i started figuring out things on the base and i had a piano that i would you know kind of mess around with and and guitar that my uncle had given me. My dad was. You're really good at figuring things out. You should pick up guitar. Try that so so then. Once i picked that up didn't know how to play it. So that's when. I immediately started riding stuff so that i could play what i was. Writing was music natural to you. It's not even know it was hard. It was yes it was natural to me was mild for you to be able to play a e. g. c. minor. You know all the ones that you can let me be on for you to play. How quickly we're able to adapt and actually play the you know those main cords with your guys. I mean pretty pretty quickly. You know it didn't take very long before we were all writing songs together as a band you know. They all sounded like pearl jam ripoffs. But you know but didn't everyone but yeah wasn't at that point. Yeah okay so you you go to school. You're going to do graphic art illustration yeah. I'm messing that. You're also playing music. I again i. I would understand that ninety nine people out of a hundred are gonna make more money doing that. Graphic art job because probably get work. Maybe i think it depends on not not necessarily in the in the field that i was headed towards it was kind of equal to music. I think because. I wasn't interested in sitting at a computer and coming up with like graphic design. I wasn't i was a tactile. Would rather get my hands. And paint or sculpt tour you know so at that point. I have a couple of friends that are classmates that are successful artists. Now and it's been the same road you know spend grinding it out and keeping keeping their head down and painting painting painting painting until they finally we all at the same age. They're having success as artists. And i'm having success music. You're playing music. What are you planning by yourself when you when you dedicate your life to it now as a craft to pay your your and what are the are you doing. Every job on pox possibly could a worked Everything i worked as a at a recycling plant in virginia i worked at landscaping companies at sign. Companies then Then moved to nashville and worked for a moving company and i worked first year. I was here or i think. Probably seven different jobs in the first year. Just you know trying to keep my bills paid and then right at night and was going to ask. I mean there is riding at night but for the most part any of my friends who are established writers. Don't right at night not anymore. No right and so when you're a young guy. I'm assuming there are other just hungry. People that will write anytime and you're all day and you're just like hey let's just try to ride a eight eight o'clock tonight to if you're gonna if you're gonna pay your bills you gotta do that and then then you gotta right in your free time. So i mean i even had like. I wish i still had them. I had a job where i worked. at a stained glass place. This is still in virginia. And i would. They had the old school time punch cards and at those a hobby lobby. Yeah and then you had them sitting there. And i would write songs on the time punch cards while while i was working would be writing this songs on the time pushes so you have to write every possible moment. Did you feel like you were a good writer though before people told you you were a good writer Yeah i think well i mean that's interesting question. I think you always questioning whether or not. You're a good writer even at this point. You know you're like i don't know how to do this anymore. so i think there's a certain amount of at that point early on arrogance that you have to have for sure i to do something and i say this all the time for me to think somebody fifty bucks to come. Watch me do comedy. I better think i'm pretty. Dang you have to have an ego about her shirt and then you gotta have humility at at the same time so you got to be able to look back and realize why wasn't working then so i think if you can do that you can keep growing but But you know. I think i when i first started i was. I was really writing. Because i really need to as a really was expressing things that i'd had no other way to express so Wasn't about being good. It was about Getting some feelings out and and working through things in a way that i can only figure out how so i mean spinoff questions comes from the things that you say. I guess the first one is what. You're working doing things other than what you would like to do full-time which is creative right. What was the first mini break. You had didn't make you have to go work at the plant or the or Well i moved to In virginia the first thing i did i was working at this thing last company and then i was making enough money Plan gigs that. I was booking myself that i could go part time like so acu book flowers you need to do or locally would play. I would play all the surroundings. Basically the whole state of virginia. And i made enough money there for about a year that i could work part time and luckily they were supportive of me and let me do that and then moved to nashville and it took Probably i don't know for a good five six years before i got a publishing deal with phil vassar. Who allow me to stop working. So let me get straight just so our listeners. They see the massive success of all dominion and everything gets put out as it seemingly. The world is your oyster musically. Right for five or six years. You're talking about five times three hundred sixty five days you worked. Well yeah and i still worked. When i had that publishing deal i still had to find other means of income but it did loosen the it. Lessen the pressure a little bit and still was on. I still went through that whole that whole publishing deal without getting any any song recorded or anything so it gave me a little money but that was it. Is there a guilt that you have. Because i've experienced this when people have signed me to certain projects that didn't do as well as i had hoped. Is there a guilt that you would have in a publishing deal where nothing got recorded or cut guilty that they were paying me now No because that's a that's a risk they assume you know most people most people that you know. If i signed a writer. I would sign them expecting nothing to happen. I in the first like few years. At least you know. It's really just about learning at that point. So that's all i was trying to do was learning. I was very upfront about that. And with any any publisher that signed me was. I'm just trying to learn how to write better. And most of them see that they see a glimmer of of talent. Most of the songs sucks. But maybe there's one line in there that gives them some hope and and they can give you a little bit of money to keep going. So i never really felt guilty about that. I mean especially. Like i was saying earlier i can go back and listen to those songs ago. I see why the time you were like. These are great recording them. They're not great aheads law growing today.

So you're riding in you start to just write songs for a living. What was the first writer. I won't even. We'll say break that you earned. What was your first break there. Where you go okay. I'm not just now. Treading water. Like i might be able to have some success at this. Yeah I sign of. Hope was a guy named steve. Holy recorded a song. That trevor and i wrote with Our friend matt jenkins and then Really it was watching my friends. Have some success was really what gave you the real hope. Is that because you knew that you could do what they do. While i was doing what they were doing. I mean we were doing it all together. So it was like like shane. For instance he came in and played. i remember. He played the demo for somewhere with you and Kenny yeah yeah and we were just like damn like that's different. Whatever that is is the next step and it we even though we weren't writers on it. We knew that that was going to change the game for all for all of us and even now when we watch kennedy play like we sit there and go we. None of us would be here without that song because he wrote that. Kenny cut it. It changed kenny's career. And because of that me and josh osborne and trevor rosen matt jenkins brandy clark and you know. We're all in that writer circle and we get we get to reap the benefits really of of that exposure. So watching our each other succeed was really what kept us going. We were like it's not like i'm doing it but it's weird doing what about first success for you or a song actually a single like a real life. It's got a chance single. That was Wake wakeup loving. You by craig morgan. So that was the first one i can't remember. I can't remember how high went on the chart if it was taught ten or not but but it was close. Which was you know that's back. Then that's all you want is like you want top twenty and you get that you watch ten. That's it was your first. Are you watching the charts every for sure watching it all the time. I don't watch any more but when you hear that at the beginning the first time you hear it actually cut i like i like that production alarm clock. Actually it really was. Yeah yeah i did. I did that on the demo. I made a little home demo of it with that alarm clock and and they there it is and then everyone who cut it after that a couple artists cut it. Everyone used that alarm clock than just my alarm clock. A couple of cut it. But they didn't put on record keith. Keith anderson cut it. And i think it made a record for him but it wasn't a single. So what's the rule there because eric past lay. Who buddies with he wrote friday. I think friday nights. I'm thinking lady cut record there. He then said well. He didn't use the single. I want to use a single when number one for him for. I wanna be a. Is there a rule that if it doesn't go as single you can still probably cut it somewhere else to. I mean once you know want to is out once somebody cuts it. Anybody can cut so so you can put it out as a single anytime. don't you have to ask for single rights though no only one. I don't think so. No i mean you do that. One time you give you give the license out one time and once you approve it. It's it's very so you're telling me i could cut. I was on a boat. Yeah put out a single and then once it beat you. Guys is the best dreaming song life but we reap the benefits of that so aristotle is good for us all we all in is first number. One song the euro So you do for dirks belly and was that a rocket ship number one or was that a we don't know if he's going to cut it he did cut it. We don't know what's going to be on the record. We're no all of them are like that. I feel like That one was. You know talking about breakthroughs and stuff that as far as writing that song. That was one. That i was sure was something special. Really knew when you wrote it chance. You're keeping these songs. Because old dominion was maybe if we were a band at that point in signed no so even like wake up loving you was are like show closer man like to let craig morgan have. That song was a really tough decision because at that point it started to feel like maybe we were going to. We were so far away from getting signed but it felt like maybe we were going to So it was tough to kind of let that one go say you do wasn't tough for us because we we did play that song at every show and But at that point man you know we're just trying to pay the bills and and we moved here to be songwriters. Anyway that's what we wanted so So it was awesome and and he didn't incredible job. There was a moment where i was going to sing. Background vocals on it but it didn't pan out and And it was just a exhilarating feeling to hear that song and watch that song. Climb to get your first number one amazing this chainsaw from the perry road this one. Yeah was it written as aggressive. It's way more aggressive. Our version is way more aggressive. This one is the light version of it. So my dad actually. My dad actually made a comment. One time about his version is like i can kind of picture you out in the woods with like frozen snot in beard beard-cutting. It's definitely a lot more aggressive version before we get over to the old dominion stuff Exc- from sam hunt is probably in my opinion. His biggest non single song is. It wasn't a single. Everybody knows it. Brian always houses single. I kind of had to be reminded. It wasn't a single sam guy. I like sam away from work. I love sam at work. You know so but love. The song did when he cuts it again. You see if. I'm not mistaken. This was on the pre. Yes i think so. Yeah and sam. Wasn't sam hunt right but did you. When you guys wrote. It was written like. Wow this is different. This is some new territory type stuff. i mean. we knew before everyone knew that it was. You know sam hunt like riding with that guy. You're like damn. This guy is something entirely different. In what means like just his creative mind is is he attacks things at different angles so the things that come out of his mouth. You're like i don't know how you thought of that. But you know even like with making miss me throws out alone like keep slipknot in the strings. Attached like some some obscure thought like that he can make seem very palatable so this riding with him. That was a moment where you knew something big was going to happen so that song. It's funny like he. He over thinks a lot of things and to you know to his credit it works you know but he like most people you sit in the room right and at the end of the day you got the song you can write for weeks and weeks and weeks on the same song with sam. So that's what happened. I never really knew the final version of ecstasy until it came out. Like i knew what i thought it was going to whether other little changes that you heard in it. You're like oh. I don't remember that at all like talking at the end. There's like a whole like kind of down bridge where he's kinda talking and kind of cute and all this stuff up. I didn't remember any of that stuff. But i mean it's amazing. Were you surprised to see the explosion of him. Yeah no. I mean i'm excited. I mean i'm surprised. See any exposure. Anybody it's always so unpredictable of who is going to be when it's gonna be a why it's gonna be. Yeah and with. Sam it hit so hard so fast and and i feel like sam is the most reluctant superstar that i've ever known for sure and when people are gonna bag on them. I'm like well. I have always way smarter and more talented than you. And he doesn't know that he loves to be an artist but he didn't want me the guy out and people forget because everything now sounds like sam hunt so it didn't then he changed it and everything on country radio. Half of it is just watered-down months. I can't save up for rainy day. Have of this hookup here side when you write a song like this. How quickly do you send it to kidney. This one you never like. I didn't know kenny at that point. And you never ever right aiming at a certain artist. But this song has the quickest journey ever but a huge journey but used to write brad. And i and our late friend andrew. Dorf used to write every morning at nine in the not every morning every week at nine in the morning so we would have double booked ourselves. We'd right from nine to eleven and then we would go to our normal right so that morning. I didn't have any ideas but in the shower on the way or getting ready to go there. That kind of course popped into my head. So i showed up and i was like. Hey what about this. And they were like yeah and we wrote that song forty five minutes. And at that time brad was making little home demos and I kept kinda egging him on like dude. You gotta make a demo. And i was joking i was like man. You wanna kenny. Chesney cut not like make the demo. So he's like okay okay and he made the demo and Sure enough. I got it right to them and he picked it up like it was. It never happens like that but That's the only time that's ever happened is an and then he went and recorded it and the studio musicians told us they only did one take the they played it and they moved on so they thought no way. That's ever making it so we wrote it in forty five minutes. They did one take of the recording session and then it becomes a three week number one. Pretty crazy when did your mindset change and okay. I'm an artist. You're always a songwriter. Yeah but now all like i. I'm the guy where the guys were. We're looking out for us first. Because if we don't nobody else is going to. What two thousand thirteen fourteen. No i think it was hard man to even through throughout the whole first album. Which was you know. Two thousand fourteen teenage Was hard for us to turn that songwriter. Switch off and hold onto saw even song for another time we pitched to. We pissed that. The kenny like at that point. We were still trying to work. We knew we were successful songwriter. So i mean honestly probably for me not until the last album with like make a sweet and one man band was when i finally felt like we as a band were confident in ourselves and we're able to like you know kind of living our own skit. How do you form a band. Five people right one two three four five dollars five form of ba. I know how to former band. But how do you form the band when you've been in town a longtime all. You guys weren't writing. I didn't like when i look back. No but i mean so wit wit. And i went to middle school together and we're in competing drumline together. And then he was in a band with Jeff all through college and and brad was at the same college. They were all taking classes together and play music together and And then i was going to open and for their and we just. This is just my guys that i've known for forever since we were kids so Those are the people that are always played music with so it wasn't very hard to like. We moved down to nashville sort of one by one. They were still in a band. I calling them trying to get them to move down here. Because i was such a fan of them i knew they could come down here and crush it. Then they broke up moved down one by one and the other members of that band did to their one of those taylor. Swiss band One of them There's another guy. Intelligence was banned from the same group And one of them plays on every country plays on all sam stuff plays dustin lynch's music and so everyone just moved down. I was right there. Were super successful. But you know when. I'm looking for someone to come play the songs i'm writing gonna come buddies that i've always played music with and i guess that was my question you know. Do you come to nashville. The land of the giants and cherry pick the giants. Or do a you. Didn't you guys you guys who were also really great. But they were guys. I mean at that point. You don't have access to the giants you can't cherry pick because the people at the top or cherry picking them so you got to. Do you know you got to you. Got to call your buddies. That will play for nothing. Because you can't give them any money so you know you just kind of roll with what you got. All five of you guys were you in the all five of you. In the official like startup old dominion brad was not the guy was mentioning. Things devon malone who plays a studio musician here in town Was at the time the original guitar player and then You know at that point. We weren't making any money. And but we were touring like we were. You know we were just losing our asses but And he started to be asked to play on the road and in the studio with other artists knees paints bills and to the point where he couldn't make a bunch and brad started subbing for him a bunch so the time came where it was like. He manner you are you into this or not. I don't think i can do it man so so he left and brad was the was the guy. Was brad already making money as a songwriter. No save star leaf on that front for him to. Yeah yeah he was just he was just starting to to get into the songwriting world and kind of make makes noise. How'd you guys. You're like the elite songwriters. Out of old dominion. Let's just removed the band. Old dominion like you legitimately have elite songwriters in your band yourself. Yeah that that didn't get together because of your elite songwriting success. No but you know. I mean trevor and i got together because of songwriting. Not because of the success but but because he and i hit it off as as co writers and friends so we had we knew we had something And then we just kind of built it from the same thing with brad brad. We had a. We had a sort of friendship. We knew him but we also knew is extremely talented but then we right with them. We're like oh this guy's kind kinda got the same thing that we have so it's just about finding your people and luckily the are people are friends. Are you able to switch off. Frontman of a mean of my favorite band of pride. The biggest band country music right now able to switch that to dad husband like that. No no it's it's been a You know that's hard. That's that's been you know quite honestly A challenge so it's it takes some therapy and some work to figure that out. I wasn't like i was kind of stupid Thinking about working on this the whole time. I never thought about being like famous or like a rockstar. Anything thought about songs and music. And and that being known. But i didn't think about people wanting to know about me and that freaked me out honestly so kind of the the beginning of it. The first few years was kind of a mess of of trying to figure out how to handle that hates wilmer valderrama from essential. Voices with wilmer above drama podcast. You'll see again soon.

Nc g. a. dot com to learn more about how corn farmers grow a more sustainable future for us all that's nc g. dot com. Do you like that part of it. Do you like being the lead. Singer of old dominion i have learned to. I didn't at first but Do now i've i've been able to kind of switch it in my brain and realize that that i'm kind of in the service industry now you know it's not it's not about me. It's about serving other people i can. I can visibly see what we are doing. Is affecting and helping other people so in when i can remember that i absolutely love it. Like it's there's nothing better than going out there realizing that something you created from an emotion or or just. A grouping of words has really big effect on people than dial means. I would not want to be doing anything else. Can you guys do five tour buses for all five members we cannot. that's expensive. I asked that now because again in the last pandemic yours weird to to quantify but like you guys have your the elite now right you also became very elite at a time when there was no money going around right here which is which is an odd thing because here you are dominating. You can't really capitalize on the success that you've had totally so no five buses yet. What are we got three. I mean we're all on the same bus so Okay we gotta listen. We at least another bus here are businessman's right now. Is like what what no one bus. But i mean we have. I think we're three buses total with our crew and everything but but there's six of us on our bus so it's the five of us and our editor. It is a weird dynamic. And i'll speak from experience too because i've had the guys on my show for the most part for ten twelve thirteen fifteen years like i just grab my people that had never done that before and let's go along for the ride together. Trust me i got you and then at times. They've had to have me too but there is always weird interpersonal dynamics because everybody's still so different living human lives are growing up to her on our show. I mean we've got people get me get married if you have an extra kids got with five people it just like. I'm dealing with that for five. People you guys have grown have have adopted quite a bit together. Yeah do you do any sort of therapy as a as a group we just got asked that Uh someone else no we. We haven't done that I mean we would probably be helpful. I think but we haven't gotten to a point where i don't think we need it. Vote we vote. We had like right in the beginning. We sat down with attorney and he was like okay. We're going to come up with the system here of voting and we were like we're never going to need that and it was literally like the next week. I wanna play just clip of. I was on a boat that day which is a number ten right now ause. We're recording that sun and this song of all the old dominion songs seems also the most fun has maybe the most. There's a different feel to it. You have other funds songs but this one feels purposefully a little more like. Hey we're putting out a song frigging half fine a little goofy even exactly. What it is is that does is. Does that happen in conversation like we've done the deep songs we've done. Why don't we just went out. That makes go. Screw it man. We're just having fun well. I think we weren't thinking about that when we were writing it but once we had written it it felt that for that reason it was like you know coming out of pandemic and all this stuff. It was just like man. Let's just let's not even worry about. Just put a fun song. Let's in in the groove that shuffle. It doesn't matter people dance. If they don't know it. They danced to that. Beat no matter what song is so. It just felt like we had so much fun recording that song. Let's just keep that party going because you know there's no needs we pride ourselves on the happy sad. Mix thing easier to do a song like that when you have the credit of success of really deep sea of songs. Yeah you know as if you put out a bunch of songs like that goofy ban. But no one's gonna take you for the goofy band right but we are. You know inherently goofy people like goofy friends with each other and we laugh constantly all day long so that is a big part of so you know it's it's. I'm glad it's finally showing new album on the eighth of next. What what number. We in montana. Where a nine four nine. Now i guess pandemics also eliminated any ability to it's number one. It's impossible october october. October eighth time tequila in therapy. Y that title. I'm sure you guys can mess around with different titles. Why why those words yeah. Those are lyrics from one of the songs And we you know bounced around a bunch of different titles for a long time and finally that came out and when it did the first time we all five went immediately went. That's you know. And and i think because you know that is man. that's that's old dominion in a nutshell right there and we've been together for so long. There's so much time in history behind us and you know. Tequila is a is a big part of our you know pre show ritual and we work with tequila company and that's just kind of part of our culture and And therapy has been allowed therapy in the past. You know couple years between me and a couple of other members and and we're learning a lot about ourselves and and you know music itself is therapeutic and It just seemed like the perfect snapshot of what this whole album is. Did you ever have the fear. Because i did in struggle with it for awhile. That going to therapy was going to make you have less of an edge. And i don't mean like a bad boy edge and creatively. I thought cross my mind some. Yeah i learned pretty quickly that whatever you know. I don't say demons are darkness or whatever. Whatever you're carrying around therapy isn't gonna make go away. So i'm always going to have that stuff. I just maybe have the tools to deal with it a little bit better so i can go back there and access that a lot. Want as far as creativity goes. It's always going to be there whether i want to or not. I don't want it to be there. But i would trade all of that going away for you know. I'm already successful. So i say that. I'll i'll end on this and being tory musician is exhausting. Are you writing anything. That's not maybe for you guys. Yeah you will just right and go. May we'll send this off. Yeah i mean. We do that all the time. I mean brad just got. He's got the new Keith urban vowed hearts was with eric paisley We hold onto them for a little longer but for the most part the chances even still of getting a song recorded by another artist are so slim even even with our success.

Yeah i mean and that's all we ever do is right for the sake of writing. We don't try to ride an old dominion song. We just right but yeah. I think that probably is happening. Some you know. I think You know there's been some talk about maybe recording demos without my vocal on them. So that people don't hear it as old dominion you know. Yeah or other buddy. Rights differ name at time. Yeah for similar reason. Yeah he's i want people to think that i'm only riding in not cutting them because i think soccer not good enough for me right and it's just a just about whether or not it's right or not know. I mean it's not like you're gonna pitch a song you don't believe in like i have plenty of bad songs that i would never let anyone here. So if they're hearing the song.

And i know that's that's not the comfortable to say an artist community where people are still fighting. Yeah but i don't feel like i feel like i'm going to not get to experience certain songs because i don't have patience for them. Sure and so. I felt like i lose if somebody puts out an album. I'm going into a compliment. Don't worry i'm with you. I feel like. I lose when someone puts thirteen songs. Because i don't invest enough time that as much time as i showed in all thirteen songs. Your your most people. I i go to a couple times and the ones i like as a swipe over and say swipe safe and i'm not it's not fair because i would like to give their all to songs time.

She bought me some for these sweepstakes. Raffle tickets yeah. Well yeah it. Gets you a shot at having a virtual coffee date with CAST members from office? What is it that OMB as website? Yeah I into the website you told me about and they have different levels like depending on what you spend see. How many buys that it gets you or how many tries or little like say they do a drawing about you two thousand. Wow also whoa that. It's like A. I don't know how much that run you want me to say. No I guess. Not if you're not comfortable well you know how much it was. It was a dollar a ticket. You bought me two thousand miles a long way but it was just not an option. I don't even know but it was the two thousand the most Jacobite bought it. Well for going it might as well go hard thank you. That's very nice. That'd be awesome. If I won that I was watching. Kirby do balloons. I would ask them all the questions. I wanted to know. I was watching. Curb your enthusiasm last night. I'm on season one still. We just watched an episode every three or four nights. And it's when we want something short and we'd never. We've never watched curb and Oscar from the office as playing like a door attendant to. It's just weird to see a lot of those characters when they were much younger doing a slight role somewhere but Yeah that's very nice of you. That's my favorite show of all time by far the office and it wasn't it was on and I still watch it every night now and we've had to make a top three list of your favorite shows of all time and I'll walk with you. What's number three okay and number three just because I can watch this all the time. Anytime doesn't matter when and it's always GonNa be funny and it's golden girls. Ooh That's a good one. I didn't even think about golden girls top three but that's a good one. I put number three because for about five years it just was the show that I waited four all the time. I just wonder what was going to happen next. And that's walking dead just loved it so much. That's a number three doesn't have the lasting power the other two AB here but walking dead because of the for about five years it was the chauffeur me a number two number two. It's maybe it says it's fresh mind and I'm currently watching it but I'm on season seven of homeland and it is. It's so good that I'm excited for season. Eight which is GONNA be the final season which is out now. But I don't remember so much about the first few but I just know it was good that I may go back and watch it all again. I'll sell I'm going homeland because I feel like between golden girls and my number one pick. I need something. That's a little more edgy. Walker friends and number two. Just because I've seen there's no edge I have a little edge in walking dead. There's killing into the world. Their friends is number. Two number one could just set of. The office is number one by far for me. What was your number one? My number one's friends. Nice Nice town full House. Maybe get in your top any guide. It may be because I thought I might need something to watch the kids in my top three but my kids like friends and then also golden girls. I think they could get into. We just never tried. I like how practical amy's being during a fantasy circumstance like this is your fantasy you can pick any show. You can live anywhere. You can be any height you can be any. Oh I just see life. Bobby is right now. Me and my house of family and I have to consider them in all things that I do know. So did you have to explain to your daughter. What an answering machine was yeah. We're reading every night. We're reading FANCY NANCY AND IN THE BOOK. She talks about having to leave a message on an answering machine and stuff. Era Pauses me. Normally if she doesn't understand a word she'll have to ask me but sometimes it's like the PA mom what is possibility mean and I explain possibility or whatever and it was mom. What is an answering machine? I thought Oh my goodness what an answering machine so I told her straight up back. In the day we used to have phones at our House. Not Cell phones. They lived at home. You did not take the phone with you and there was a big box that you could attach to it. The people could leave a message for you on that. And then she just thought. Why wouldn't you just leave a text message and I said okay. There's not there is no text messaging? You had to like you would leave. I would leave a message saying and I sang to her the Song I had as a kid you know. I didn't think so. She didn't she. Go ahead go ahead. Okay Okay Hello. We're the Muffin with the story to tell we're not home at the moment. That don't have a cow. Just leave a message at the sound of the tone and welcome back soon as possible when we get home. Be Hell and now rhymed back in the day. I mean I was in the third grade but still tau. If it's the same is the same year that I also wrote the Bat rap for the Boba I friend if you see that kissing mouth and it may give you kkob it in two thousand and twenty though best now and given given corona virus. I'm not the VATS are not your friends neighborhood. One of them made everybody sick. And now all of a sudden we hate all bats and but these do you think you think Batman will ever be will forever be tarnished thing. I just thought that I didn't think that in my mind I was thinking Ronan now. No he won't be punished. I was reading a story. About speaking corona sixty. Three percent of engaged. Couples have now postponed their weddings. Which Raimondo is engaged and is supposed to get married in October? Raimondo's are been any changes at all. What you guys are planning now. We're good to go stuff. Got pushback engagement. Pick DELVIN got those couple of months behind solvent fittings but other than stuff being delayed the wedding itself the date. We are still six months out. Not One day has changed on that one. Yeah Sixty three percents of engaged couples now so. They postponed their wedding. Because of the pandemic. If you're planning a big wedding that's going to be tough. How big is ray one fifty? You know more than that. And let's be real. It's probably less than that. People aren't traveling as much. I don't know how many people from Michigan are GonNa Migrate Down Here. So we're probably looking at right around one hundred. Hey Ray speaking to Michigan I saw like a police officer in New York shutting out your mom for getting her a mask yet so she's actually not police officer but she was Emt She's on the front line. Yeah and you saw the uniform. My bed and it says F. D. N. Y. Almost looks like that from nine eleven. Like what the cops would wear and the police and the fire department but yeah so she was in Nashville got transferred up there and she was straight up in New York City fight. Krona virus were which is basically the epicenter this whole thing and she was wearing one of the Mash. She said it's a lifesaver. That my mom. Ater WOW and that Co ed. Reyes mom on the show to talking about that. Yeah really really cool well. We're still rooting that. Your wedding is going off as planned. Will you social distance that thing if you have to? I think this is going to be all cleared up by that there in no way in six months are we still doing six feet. Not Touching say. Hi but don't even talk to the person face to face like no way. Zoom weddings are happening in six months. Amy Okay but consideration and I hope. I hope that we're back to normal ray for sure for you and and Bay but like food wise normally at wedding. Sometimes there's buffets or the way do y'all have y'all rethought how you would serve things at least because I I think parties from here on. I don't know buffets will ever be a thing. We'll just being extreme. I think it'd be a thing but let's hear what ray things we think. Well the discussions the you're talking about. Or what the tastings and we had like five tasting lined up and yet we didn't do one of them so we're pretty far behind on that and I'm sure we'll once we start to do them in the coming months. Then we'll talk to bill hey So how do you serve this stuff without people touching? It sounds like that he just cut it all up and give it to people in portions or you say ahead of time what you'd like. You're aren't going to be near the thing that they were another. There were a lot of the more. I know that I went with that option. Because it's the cheaper option when you're planning a wedding so but I'm sure caterers and stuff are going to work with people on that so let me see. That's another story and be reminded me of you. A Florida girl put a help. Give me out of here sign or window because of homework it that makes you think. Oh Yeah Yeah I could see that happening. Sometimes if the cops come to your house like doom and you found out that one of your kids had put up a sign. Help me out of here sign. How would you react? No no that would be bad for us. Actually that's what she did said that the mom did it or the kid help. Get me out of here. It alarmed Florida deputies but it turned out. A little girl needed help with their math homework. Oh okay yeah so a maintenance worker saw I thought somebody was like a napped. Yeah okay so I think that that would be really really bad if my kids even if they were jokingly doing it about homework because we've adopted and we still get monitored by people every year for how we're raising our kids it could just be a flag to where they may investigate a little bit more I just would it be like hey. Hey Kid don't put up a sign that says you frigging kidnapped. It's like the kids in the back of the they hold up a sign like help and they're driving on the highway. Understand what about yes no? I do at first. I was thinking for whatever reason I've had in my mind I had even seen that story and I thought it was the mom. Put it up like help. Get me out of here. I can't take these people thought she was abducted like would you? Would you ground your daughter? No my kids would not be in trouble but I would have to have a talk with them that that could get them taken away from us. Oh that's a big one. Yeah going over to Eddie's house because Eddie takes all the kids to more just drive over and see him over that he's OK. Okay this is what makes it on the same page. I felt like we're on the same page there for a little bit tired. Got Their got all right. All right Let's get going here with the show.

Let's go welcome to Tuesday's show Amy Good Morning Good Morning. How are you pretty good? I was thinking about you. I know you're home. Schooling your kids. When is that over May Fifteenth? Are you looking forward to that day? The final day. It's fourteen days away. You know exactly. It's a one six minutes I mean fourteen actual school days not fourteen total days. Do you have something you have to accomplish before that or do you. Just keep them learning. We just keep them learning stuff. That's do every day so we'll just stay on the curriculum until the final day on the fifteenth. And then I guess it's summer and then we had planned. Our kids are always have some sort of well not always we've had them for two summers But being that we adopted from Haiti and they're behind in their education in the summertime. We still have them enrolled in certain things and now. I don't know what we're GONNA do this summer because I don't know what the options are going to be. Are you ready though for school to be over? E Yeah Break. They are too yeah. They'll get a little break but we can't have too much of a break in learning at all so we've already prepped them for that like you. Just get ready. You're still going to have to keep learning but they're fine with it. I think that's what everybody has to do. So we're good. Well glad everybody's here with us. We hope that we feel like your friends. And hopefully we bring a little normalcy to you. That's kind of the goal here Kayla girlfriend made some she such a cook and she likes to try out and try to make things and I love Pepper Cini peppers. You're not a pepper. Chini is yeah. They're so good. Yeah it's the green win. It's like it all of garden where you get your soup and salad they. It's the few they put on the top and sometimes I'll go. Let me get extra pepper Chinese. She knows I love him so she made this thing where she can show cut them in half and she fills them with stuff had never had a pair of jeans and they're so good and she's been making in the last couple of nights maybe a play both nights so that was a bro. Highlight of my evening last night That and I know she should make these videos and put them up on instagram. But she's she thinks that nobody will care if she makes a cooking video and like people love cooking video especially if it's easy to make stuff right yeah for sure. Yeah then we watch another episode of the Michael Jordan the Bulls documentary. Have you watched any of that? I haven't yet but I'm my husband. Has He really likes it? Yeah it's great especially if you love the NBA or Sports Caitlyn's a humongous NBA Fan. So did that got a couple of voicemails. I walked in to see a couple of these. This first one is from holly an Indiana here. You go I listen to you every day on the podcast and I love it But I had a question for you guys so I am moving out what to Wyoming Here in a couple of weeks and I'm so excited and I have a new job and the job will require me to get super early in the morning. I was wondering if you start that it would be a good idea to practice getting up earlier before I would go out there I love to hear your opinions. Thanks so much bye. That's a great question and you know I've been dealing with waking up early for the last twenty years of my life. Almost I mean I started doing mornings when I was twenty two twenty three forty now and I'm not a morning person by the time you hear me. I'm still a little grumpy and I'm still appealing it off. It takes me about an hour to really get so. I'm someone to talk to was like how do I? How do I adjust? The key isn't waking isn't waking up early. It's going to bed early. That's what you should practice doing because you'll have to wake up regardless by going to bed early. Is We have to train yourself to do. That's been the best part of of my ability to do a morning show or to come on the here and be somewhat compelling or have energy. It's getting enough sleep so I would say just practice going to bed at eight or nine o'clock whatever your schedule is going to be. We think yeah you kind of have to get used to your social life being different than everybody else's too. That was whenever I started doing mornings with Bobby. That was the number one thing my none of my friends. None of my family. Nobody was on my schedule so it was really difficult because I still wanted to do things with them when they got off work or whatever but eventually that gets old because then you're tired in the morning and you just have to start making lunch dates with people if you can or early early dinner dates or something and then that'll that'll result in you feeling better in the morning. I'm not a morning person so I say this to you. Just go to bed earlier. You'll be so much happier in the long run with it. Let's do one more voicemail from Kelley. Here you go. Hey Bobby Lamie. Forty Studio I just wanted to you bless you know that I had just finished bare bones and I had a question You mentioned in their your friend Courtney and I was just wondering if we're still friends in contact also. I wanted to let you know that will. My son is a very big advocate for washing his hand and he sings her song all the time. Anyway let her song love the show. Keep redoing thank you Kelly his Kelly and Colorado Springs. Yeah my first book is called Barebones about my life and my best friend in the book in now. His name's Courtney. We don't talk as much as we used to. He's got two kids now. He's had a second baby but yeah we met in college basically picked on me and made fun of me. Because I couldn't afford a jacket. I was to wear my high school jacket. And he was like we're high school letterman jackets to college and I was like you're such a loser and then we became best friends but yeah I mean listen. If you needed a kidney you could call me. But we don't talk every day as much. Yeah but he's still wondering restaurants are then he always we'll be even if we don't talk for for years and years and years but yes. Brian Kaitlan my girlfriend up to the studio real quick as I work from my house. I guess she's every time she laughs. There does anything we face. She holds it because it hurts her so bad but this is what aimee went through last week. You guys are sharing beauty products and burning your faces off. I don't know what we're up to on both sides amy who. I work with every day for hours. Kaelin who I'm living with it. It's always somebody's faces hurting. So what are we going to do about this? Well it'll be show. I'm back to normal already. Well actually a younger looking normal. My young my face doesn't I? I don't have to grab it if I laugh or cry or I don't scream in pain of toothpaste gets on my chin. Okay so what are you guys putting on your face. It's hurting you so bad. It's it's an at home peel. So it's this it's called radical night repair and really you're just supposed to use it once or twice a week night but no no no. That's typically what it's made for but my face girl she like a lot of people can't come in and maybe get appeal if they wanna get a treatment so they they discovered a way. Where if you just do this once or twice a week cream five days a week morning night. My goodness yeah. That's why I heard so bad. Little Mix what did you do? What did he do high got a little? I got details a little flip flop doing i. I wasn't so started yet and I was using these other products that she gave me and I wasn't supposed to make some but I thought I was so that's why mine is like acid Told me it felt like I took a razor nick myself and then Portland juice on it. And I'm I'm dealing with both of you guys. It's like I got amy for a few days now. You but here's what happened to your face. Girl was talking to Caitlyn and is she was asking her how she washes her face. What'd you tell her? No you don't WanNa say they'll never say what was different but I just. Sometimes I wash my face in the shower with shampoo. If I'm not look I know amy. It's terrible but none of them like in my hair start starts getting a little in that kind of like let it roll down in front of him and that's what you used to wash your makeup off not all the time okay. Wow caitlyn is just as a sewer rat. Be Open disgusting sewer rat. No I'm actually was thinking like you're you're blessed like you have beautiful skin and you wash it with shampoo like if that's how. I were to wash my face my face to be old and dry and crusty. I just want everybody listening to this to know that it's been a struggle week or so. Get Amy for a few days but Kaelin is going to be better soon right. Yeah once you get over the Hump. I would say day five day. Four or five. You're like Oh I hate my life day six. You're like why'd I do this even though you're done with the cream you're still feeling and then around day you're like whoop. Holler so glad. I did it when she wakes up. She would go how long how young I look today for not yet go down one year every day and not yet. You're you're still a few days away from reaping the benefits. Okay Kayla. Thank you for coming up here so well. Thank you all right. Your your guest come all right. The middle of a movie experiment here. We're all of US recommended a movie for somebody else on the show. We just drew names and Morgan. What did you watch? I WATCH STEEL MAGNOLIAS IN. Amy's the one who recommended that to Morgan and Morgan. Nearly Twenty Six though. This is a little older for you right. Yeah but staal pardon is in it. And so as Julia Roberts which I love both of them are I. Give us your review of steel magnolias. Okay well I have a love. Hate Relationship Amy Right now because the movie made me cry but it was really really good and I definitely see why it's a classic But I don't think just watching it like after you lose someone in your life. It's very much about family. And this group of women who have stayed friends through everything but I gotta give it four point five out of five. Shelby's it was really really good. Amy Anything to say about steel magnolias. One of my favorites I. I know that it can stir up a lot of emotion and Morgan. Yeah I know I'm sorry. I know that you recently lost your grandmother but hopefully to it can just remind you of the connection that family can have and how important that is and there is a lot of humor in there too so you do laugh but you'll definitely cry. Yeah and in particular. The funeral scene that that part just. I was laughing the whole time. And then when that scene happened I just? It was like all the tears I think from. Obviously losing my grandma and the movie and once but it was still so good to watch it just like you said it brought back both good and you know sad feeling so it was a good thing. Did you forget that she lost her grandma when you recommend that movie? I don't know I mean no I remember that but I think I mean going back maybe I should have recommended pretty woman that probably would have just made her laugh not cry but I am not opposed to getting out emotion. Maybe a blessing in disguise. The Morgan needed to release some of that. Okay well we're going to let you liked it. That's a successful experiment here. I still have to watch lunchboxes movie and I got to be honest. I didn't know the name of it. I forgot it. It's the only one never even heard of and he. He did it to punish me here. It's called box of moonlight. I don't understand it's not that hard. It's really good. It's really is you. You have hard time unwinding and that is exactly what this movie is. All the movies are recommended. We're still magnolias. Parasite eight Mile Black Panther. A movie that we'd never heard of. I think it's his fourth grade play box of moonlight. I still haven't start okay. Well Morgan thank you for your review you to feel good about that. So far. Everybody on that gap off. Okay all right there you go world. The world is yours podcasts.

'cause watching a news story about how this one family has five kids in there quarantining and they're doing home school and I was like that's my favorite walker as has six kids. So how's it going over there without the kids at home schooling? Dude we're We were already on our home school trained so thank goodness. That was no. You know that was not a big change for us but I mean the kids. The kids want more entertainment man. They demanded they want me to be funnier and more exciting and more entertaining than I've ever been in my dad career.

The easiest That wasn't easy trivia for me ever and I what I was telling the earlier. I'm really glad of the dude before me called a hippopotamus around Austin. When he made that mistake I was like I. I'm good I'm not the first off. But Yeah Man. Trivia freaks me out.

So checkout trash my heart and also go in and search him up listen to all of it and listen to it nonstop when you leave the house. Just push play and put push repeat. Even if you're not listening build those dreams. That's what I say all right Yup Walker. Good to talk to you my friend back above show. This story comes from Elkhart County Indiana. A twenty five year old man was going one hundred and twenty miles an hour on the highway when police pull up next to him and say pull over pull over. He thought they were getting hand motions. Let's race so he kept going. Oh Wow Hey. Let him on a twenty five mile chase until he pulled over and got arrested. Wait so I would assume there was alcohol involved. There had to be right. No he really there. They said he was charged with reckless driving and several moving violations but no alcohol involved. He really thought they wanted to race. Wow what don't you have to be drunk to think that though is my question. Wow I would. I have a lean on drunk. I would all right. Is that it. I'm much. That's your boneheads story. Today it's time for the good news. Johnny Morris is the founder bass pro shops and he's decided to donate one million. Fda approved face Matt's for first responders or anyone in the healthcare. That needs these face masks. I guess it's a thing right. Now that people are more facemask stepping up to do that and basically if there's an bass pro shop or Kabila's in your town. Those masks are going to those cities. Wow Hey listen we are a bass pro shop show also Eddie goes. I guess it's a thing now like the whole new like every single story on the news for the past. Two months hasn't been that. Healthcare workers need mass. Apparently there's some virus running around. I saw the tweet yesterday. Well Shoutout Bass Pro Cabela's that's awesome. Obviously we love them But making a difference. Everybody's making a difference. I love it. That's what it's all about. That was tell me something. Good every hour. We bring positively. It's called tell me something good. We've we've done it for fifteen years. I remember when we came up with this segment. Everybody Kinda told us as a dump segment we used to it at five and six o'clock in the morning only remember way back in the day. Yeah if it's definitely early early and what happened was we started doing this segment and we have something radio called research and they started testing the segment and it was like our highest testing segments. So we started doing it more because we love doing the segment. Anyway we love positively and finding a good way to look at things and so then other radio show started doing it the next thing you know. It's all over the country. Were super proud of that. And it's really become something where known for and that song is a real song that Chaka Khan tale something good it's like Rufus and Chaka Khan on the radio. I'll be at the grocery store I know here. Don't get down the down. And I'm like all that so weird but we've become known for this after fifteen years and I love it. And there's a pastor at Trinity Church in Oklahoma. His name is Brian Mills. He's a senior pastor there and he referenced in his sermon. This last Sunday ago. Now I want to give you a little update. Can I give update? Y'All y'all fired up. We gotta get a little update term. Something good is bobby bones. That's off Bobby bojars countryman. You don't listen to country. You know bobby he's from Arkansas. Something good anyways. And that's like I feel like he started rambling because he was looking on the crowd and maybe nobody knew who. He's talking about crowd. If you remember there's no it's just sitting keys and so there's the wasn't getting any bag. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah that makes sense. I feel like I. I'm watching Church online too and I feel like my pastors. Have something similar where they don't know if what they said is it's resonating the way they thought it. Would they awkwardly keep talking well Bryan Mills? Two four seven is his name. Brian Mills. Twenty four seven Just want to say thanks to him for for what he's doing and keeping everybody spirits up and throwing us a shout out there in the middle of a sermon so loved that speaking of that you have an Air Force magazine because your husband was in the Air Force Academy he served in the Air Force and they send out a magazine that is what basically well it's for Air Force Academy Alumni and it's called checkpoints and anytime it comes in the mail. My husband reads it cover to cover. And we've been getting it since as long as we've married because he graduated before we got married. It is the header of this. Tell me something. Good is what they wrote on there. Yeah so at the if you open it up again like I said he reads it cover to cover and they're a retired. Colonel named Cathy C. Mclean class of Nineteen eighty-two wrote an article called tell me something good and the first line in the article is I. Enjoy listening to the bobby bones. Show morning radio program while commuting. And then she talks about Vavi Amy lunchbox and how we put a smile on her face with our antics but then that we have tell me something good so she used it to launch into three. Tell me something goods from Air Force Alumni. And then she and she signed off. Is Our graduate community after something. Good most definitely bobby bones. Amy Lunchbox Take Heed Nice. Say we're taking he all the he'd taking it i. It was funny when my husband's showed it to me. He was part proud but park jealous. Because I think being in the air force is just a big deal to be here and he's like to know what I would give to be featured in this magazine and now my wife is in. That's awesome were shot her out to we pre. What's her name? Again Amy yes. She's retired. Colonel Cathy mclain class of eighty. Two man appreciate you for what you do in life. Appreciate you for mentioning us in that magazine. And that's why we tell me something. Good we just. We love it. We love it brings a smile to your face because it brings a smile to ours and fifty. Five after every hour is when that happens. I WANNA play some John Party. He posted a picture on his instagram story. And he put on some glasses like I wear because he wears glasses and he goes. Hey Bobby I never wear these and take my cowboy hat off but he looked just like you see the picture just like me. Yeah I agree I was. I thought he was making fun of posting a picture of me but John Party about the cowboy hat and glasses like I have looks like me so I thought that was pretty funny rough morning. Gorny where do you take someone who has been injured in a peekaboo accident or do you take someone who's been injured in a peekaboo accident the ICU warning hey? I saw this story beginning to jokes a six year. Old Kid name Kalugin mcglaughlin set up a free joke. Stand at the end of his driveway where he tells jokes to people who walk by just to lift their spirits. He says sixteen or seventeen jokes. He feels they're all pretty strong. Here's a clip of a few of his best jokes that if you walk by he'll hit you with red white and blue sad candy cane please black white and red a penguin. That's embarrassed with the parents. Favorite lighter and thinking have any bad jokes but my sister is like awful ones. There you go. He knows about as many as you do sixteen or seventeen. We've done this for about two years. We've heard about sixteen or seventeen. What are you GONNA say? Is cuter coming from him. I agree with that. Not you're not but one of the big stories yesterday and Country Music was that the ACM's are going to be in Nashville for the first time ever and I think if you were just hearing that on the surface or if you're not super inside that doesn't mean anything to you because who most people don't know the difference when the ACM's and the CMA's honestly. I think I do because I'm on boards and I present on these shows but for the most part people like wait. It hasn't always been in Nashville. It hasn't so the Siyam as which happened in November are always in Nashville the. Acm's are usually in Las Vegas and that office is in California so because of what happened this year. They weren't able to have it. They moved September and now for the first time. It's going to be in Nashville so I don't know that that's a big story too. Many folks except real industry people but the real cool story is is that it's going to be in three different places this year. They're going to do the show and I'm not sure how they're going to pull it off yet. But in September they're going to do the show at the Opera House where they have the Grand Ole opry at the Reimann Auditorium which is a music venue that used to house the opry way back in the day and still does occasionally and the Bluebird cafe which is a small place where riders go and play so that is the real headline here not that it moved to Nashville. Because I don't think most people know the difference. I wouldn't if I wasn't super involved in in the weeds but they're gonNA do the show from three different places which I think is pretty cool. Well Yeah Well. You know the difference between each venue because you've played all three. So what is the cool factor of them bouncing to each location? Like what do you think could be special about it? Being played there. I wonder if the opera houses can actually have some of the Grand Ole opry stuff. Now I've played the opry show performed at the grand elaborate probably fourteen times or so and why that's awesome is because it's the Grand Ole opry. Its longest running show. The radio show has been around forever. We're still doing the operate on Saturday nights and I'm hosting it and helping produce the TV version of that so that's cool because it's his nostalgia from the Grand Opera and that one will be at theatre about four thousand people okay. The Reimann is a music venue which was built in eighteen hundreds and it's been around forever It's worth the opera actually started before moved and that is really cool because of the history that the venue holds. I usually play a show a year there. it's an pews old pews and then the bluebird is tiny tiny. It's the smallest of the mall. You can fit about sixty people in there and when you play in there you're it's very vulnerable because people are sitting right on top of you and I'm I'm betting on the show they're gonNA have people sitting around playing their Song Super Acoustic. Because that's been you of all of them. I like plan the operate the best because of the history there the rhyme and is probably the most fun because I play like hour long shows and the Bluebird is man. It's it's the hardest to play oddly. But it'll be interesting September back hopefully. That's the goal indulge me for a second and tell you the story came. You can't so what I do get on this Peleton bike and I don't enjoy it. I don't enjoy exercise but I try to exercise almost every day but I get on this bike and it is for thirty minutes awful because I don't let up. I just get on and go as hard as I can for thirty minutes and I'm going pretty good stretch before and some rock in it and I'm on pace to beat my personal record of has almost two years and I can feel that I'm on pace to be my personal record so I'm like okay. Let me just right so I get down to the last minute and I'm like time to turn IT I. I've already been just rocking and I'm out of breath. My legs are hurting but I can. I can take it. I'm trying to get like four seventy five for thirty minutes and so I finally hit over my pace and I'm like just keep up. Got Fifteen seconds left and then I go now. Newnan to not in my leg and my stomach and I'm grinding so hard on these. I'm just going standing up going as hard as I can. I think goes and I don't think anything of it and I'm exhausted. I'm sweating all over everything and I get off and you have to bike and a dry off and a walk over to the bathroom. I'm like I might as well and I started peeing blood y. Yeah so I'm peeing blood and I'm like Oh my goodness am I dying and then I think back. I think I heard something. Click as I was pedaling really hard. So there's blood everywhere because once started to see blood Kamata kind of reacted we're jerked so there's blood all over the toilet. I never had before. So I'm like holy crap so I cleaned it up and I don't know if I should tell Caitlyn and I can I know she's GonNa Freak Out I have a doctor's email so I'm like oh great. What do I do so I- Google it what happened. What's it mean when you don't do that by the way because it's going to give you the pyramid of the worst things I and so I'm like oh great more nervous and like let me just be again? If there's no blood this time it's probably just disarm fluke like blood flew p again later more blood so I had my doctor up and goes what explain what happened. Now's GonNa bike and he goes. Oh he goes yeah. That's not good. He said but you have a he. Matura he materia he materia something like that and I was like what does that he goes well. It's trauma inside your body and it happens to marathon runners when they run too hard and don't take breaks and it's like how can you been riding this bike? I was like Oh over last thirty days. And they got done twenty eight days on in two days off and he goes hardest every time he goes. Okay well you hurt yourself. You've injured your Oregon's because my guy when you get on you go to hard. He goes do you ever just take breaks and don't take. There's no breaks when I decided to do something I go. It goes wild and you probably shouldn't do that. He goes. You need to give yourself forty eight hours of doing nothing. And then if you're still bleeding then we have a bigger issue like you have some serious damage in there. And so that's what I have and I was so proud of myself that I injured myself from work and like I was working hard. I was working so hard. I entered an organ. How about that baby? Come on. Yeah I didn't even know that that was possible. In cases where there is no trauma exercise induced he mature usually resolves within around seventy two hours. After the athletic event knows I love athletic. Event was just you and your room trying to break a record by yourself. Yeah listen I compete. Even if it's myself and I did I one that's right. I may have injured all my organs. But you know who won me beat me? Well either way pinball. Yesterday it was crazy to see my two of my biggest injuries when I was training to do a triathlon. That's when I got my him Royd. Remember that Yeah. There were like Yeah you're bleeding out of your butt and I was like. Oh No dying or have you been running a lot of the training for a tribal and they go okay. Well this is what happens to runners whenever they trained too much. So I've been put on probation. Kahlon won't let me get on. The bikes took one of the pedals. Off So yeah she didn't. Yeah yeah there's because she knows all get on it when she goes to work. I'll get on the bike. That's hilarious. Okay well man. That's that's not right. Thought you were going whenever you said you heard pop. I thought your you hurt your but again. Oh Yeah I did hear my head a anal. What's it called tear you? Yeah it was a I I'm sure there's a fancier name for that like I played high school. Football and played apply did a lot of stuff. I never got injured but me riding a bike or like taking a jog is how I get hurt. That was my day yesterday though. Oh okay well so we have to monitor it. You have what another day to make. Sure you're good. Yeah and Caitlyn. Oh so worried. She was googling stuff all night and I was like He. Don't worry I've no no blood him opinion. Okay well I'M GONNA I'm GonNa need to see because I did. I wanted to worry. There's still a little but now I think she wants to paycheck me. Yeah you bobby you need to stay on it. I feel like this one of those weird things where people want to buy my no but you know how people discover. Something's wrong with their body from an event that happens. That wasn't supposed to result in that. Like I know scaring me. She was like Oh. This may not be hit bobby. Here's the thing I'm just making sure we need to monitor it. So yes be honest about your P. and don't seal it for Mike D. Okay five bucks to to you know. We talked about if got a beard. That was bad during corona. Now have a beer. That's fine krona's nagging to live in your beard. That was a concern of I. I was reading this article today. This is there are certain reasons you shouldn't grow certain facial hair during the pandemic. So the standby everything they said you know. Side whiskers beard soul patch and all. That's good to go but stubble munch chops are not recommended. You know why because they can actually interfere with the mask and like tear the mask or if you have a full beard. That's like Puff Dick. It can hold the mask up off your face a little bit and it would kind of interfere with how the mask is supposed to work. Okay so how this Goes with your life is shave. Your face amy. I do every day every other day. Amy Does Shave your face for our listeners out there that Jamie takes a razor to her face not for that reason just because I like to have really smooth skin does help your makeup. Go or your sunscreen or your moisturizer Guam better and helps keep your skin younger. So don't you try? Your husband thinks it's so hot when he walks in and you're shaking your face doesn't know he has to turn around and walkway if he accidentally walks on me he's like my ass and he walks away and tell me when you're done so. I can come in pile of stories. Smucker's is now selling crystals filled with Taco meat. Instead of peanut butter and Jelly. A non crushable is. Oh Yeah. You've seen them in the freezer at the store. And they're like little white bread circles with no crust in on the inside. There's peanut butter and Jelly in there in the refrigerator. Freezer section. Nobody makes sense. I'm looking at it here. I mean I don't know that I've ever seen that. Do you know what it looks like to me. My dog has these things that you put a pill inside of. They're called pill pockets. And it's just like a gooey tree but you put the pill them look like a white bread pill pocket. It's like a human hot pill pocket. Yeah well so yeah. They've always been peanut butter and Jelly. But now there's a Taco meat version which is beef cheese salsa and TACO seasoning. And then they have a barbecue chicken version which is all white meat chicken and barbecue sauce. You can find them in the freezer section. They've been spotted target for three dollars and ninety nine cents so they're probably at grocery stores all around the country but yet they'll be in the freezer and then you just heat them up and eat them. Go pretty good. I miss eating white bread like as a kid. I ate so much white bread. I could eat a loaf of day because at times we couldn't afford the meat to go with the white bread. So we we just eat the bread and you what you would do. Is You off the crust and you squish it up like a ball. Sometimes we whitebread doughnuts. I think Mike Dino talk about his poor like growing up there were like forty nine cents a low. Yeah for like forty nine cents and you take took two or three pieces and use squeeze it together but you pulled off all the cross. I and you eat it and like it's doughnut but when you got real fancy you poke a hole in it and scored mustard in it and you smush it up even more and it was like a must. Do you know about Donald Hall. You have a bigger than a whole. It was like the whole. Don't yeah no no my. I mean my kids grew up in an orphanage and grew up on a lot of bread. So they love we love. Even you buy like a like French bread. Like a bag thing. I mean they were in Haiti. So that's the kind of bread they had like. If I buy that the storm bring it home. My kids think they have won the Jack. For Dinner. That's those those smucker's things look pretty good What else you got well. Speaking of eating the dining room table is getting more used than ever in the top uses for it right now. During lockdown include children's classroom. Maybe your office the lunch break table or you know like I said a workspace or a workout space to put your computer on if you're doing an at home workout or something but also for mealtime on a positive note family. Say they're eating more meals together now that they're under lockdown and they feel closer to relatives and they believe they're being kinder to one another move my dining table because my dog pooped on the carpet and it was a small car to get clean and we who broke the table now is in two pieces. That won't go back together and he's also taking this carpet as his new carpet so Putin like eight times when he was had the coin on a sick so but now I gotta take the table out today and get rid of the carpet. You bringing that up. Remind me what have to do today. I have a nice table and we broke it. And it's broken in the middle so it's probably unable to repair see really haven't been spending more time at your dining date. No not at all but thank you for the reminder. What have to do today or else. So you have been obsessed with this person before Kate Beck and sell. She's had a few stockers and just pretty. She's very pretty. That is true and she had to deal with another stalker showing up to her house and Four cops actually spotted outside of her house going through a backpack. That was left at the scene. But even the cops wearing face masks so it's just scary for one thing to think you have a stocker coming near House. But then you don't know if the stocker has corona virus. I guess I didn't think about that. I I would think about the stalker murdering me way before I would get down to corona virus on the list but yeah I got the cops facemask to think about. I know. That's what made me think about the the cops even had to show up with NASA protect themselves and end is just crazy to have someone come to your house but then yeah now they could have a virus there you go. I'm amy that's my pile amy's of stores. Hey there this is Jonathan Strickland. I'm the host of the podcast tech stuff. It's not your typical tech show.

Hey Bobby his CAITLYN's yet to go to the grand old opry when you do the shows and just a footnote for his wife. Kidney Stones Lemonade all right there. You Go The question by Kaitlyn. No nobody goes to the opera with me. So if you're new to this show I host and produce a TV show. That's called opry and because of what's happened the Grand Ole opry has had to stop with crowds. So I go every Saturday. We livestream it. We ideas on like eighty stations around the country in the circle network as well and people go up in just a couple of artists and they sit up there and they play this week shows massive by the way but No she can't go. I can't take anybody with me. They have rules about how many people can be in the building and we're all very social distance. So that's kind of an alone jobs for me. At least here I get to talk to you. And I'm far away from my cameraman my producers just in my ear. I sit on the bench by myself. I mean I'm Satterfield. We are it does feel weird. I loved the Grenelle operate. Obviously so that's why we started that show that's why produce the show more than I hosted But Yeah No. She doesn't get to go. She sits here usually she makes dinner which is crazy and she's like okay. Eight thirty I get back and I could eat dinner. She's such a good. Cook Crazy Albino I. She doesn't to go. I was reading a story by jobs though the sexiest an unsexy EST jobs for guys. What do you think the sexiest job is for a man pilot? That's what your husband does not make the list. No K firefighter. No Oh doctor. Doctors Number One because they have high income in their trustworthy now. Sorry I wasn't facing off. Income Wall sexy. I mean sure. Let's sexy about people's in some people's eyes A lawyer is it number two. Wow I just see doctors and lawyers as Yao really awesome people. I'm sure but in a lot. Okay to if you're looking for someone to be with forever. Aren't you looking for someone who is smart and can provide into and then if you're married to a lawyer? They probably win every argument. Yeah that'd be tough. A PSYCHIATRIST IS AT NUMBER THREE FOR SEXIEST JOBS. For men is that sexy. He's probably analyzing every move. I make the unsexy EST jobs for men tow truck drivers at number one because to do that job. You have to be mean and very rude. Oh I bet they're not I bet for them. It's hard sometimes. They're towing a truck or car. They're probably like Oh man hates it at the do this. I hated I hated. I hate it but it's job. Yeah I don't know I don't think you'd keep doing it if you hate it that much. Oh well hey if you got to. The bills. Trash collector is at number two. Because it's smelly and TV producer is unsexy because of the odd hours so if the sexiest job for for a woman a doctor would be up. That'd be a good one I but I put that for me too. I think just a doctor so trustworthy and smart and you know me. I Love Smart Radio Persons on on there though. It just missed it. It was just missed it. We're in the middle of our forced movie reviews. We all drew. Somebody's name gets recommended. Movie for them. And Morgan. Watch steel magnolias. As was forced on her amy and gave it four and a half out of five showbiz. Shelby's you really enjoyed that movie Yeah I was really besides making me cry yes I really liked it. We pulled up all the rotten tomatoes from all these movies to see who got the best end of the deal and Black Panther was ninety. Seven percent positive lunchbox. Watching mine was the worst by far is making me watch box of moonlight. That is the only one in the sixties. Everybody else was seventies eighties or nineties sixties. Ain't bad sixty one percent his mind so I have to start tonight. I guess I'm going to watch like twenty minutes of it but lunchbox did watch Black Panther sent to him by Morgan Number. Two okay. Let's you're forced review of Black Panther. Yeah so going in. I was really excited because there was so much hype behind this movie. Everybody talks about how great it is and I'll be honest with you. It was awful boring like there wasn't much action for a like a like a Comic Book Action Movie. The supposed to be a lot of fighting and there was not very much I was just like okay can we get to some fighting images storyline. Okay Boring Boring. I didn't really think it was that good. I thought it was way overrated way over hyped and maybe that was the problem. Maybe I was just expecting excellent things because everybody talked about how so it was so great. And you're gonNA love it and you're GonNa be amazed and I was just like man. This is not that good. Are you sure you didn't Watch Pink Panther? Pretty sure I watched it. Okay what are you? What are you ready to give it two and a half out of five? Wow listen I saw bypass I loved it. Did you now my kids. Did they love De Movie? Mike is podcast movies. What'd you think of Black Panther? I mean that's one of the best marvel movies. Great box of being a contrarian here big one hundred percent okay. Well it's his review. His force review is two and a half. What kind is five yes okay? Ninety seven percent positive Moroccan tomatoes. I guess I guess I'm a three percent right. They're not it's not. It's everybody's Cup of tea but do you like the superhero movies. I like some of them like I liked ironman because I felt like iron man was a lot of action. The whole time fights fights craziness. This was just I was just. I wasn't my cup of tea. I can't ruin it. There's things that I want to say but I don't want to ruin it for people that I'm just like okay. That's just What else have you seen other than Ironman? I've Seen Batman. Okay Not Marvel okay. That's it all you haven't so you haven't seen any of the series though. I'm seeing any of them so I'm just jumping into this one and I was just like okay cool but that's okay as long as you know. Jump into avengers like that. I think I haven't seen avengers and I at one point. I even called Morgan number. Two and I was like am. I supposed to die miss something from another show because I don't know what's happening right here. And she was like just watching. Explain it and it did explain it but I thought I'd missed it from one of the other movies Morgan. How you feel about him. Hating Black Panther hurts my heart a lot but I can't hate him for his own opinion but Black Panther is a fantastic movie. I mean he's just wrong. It's also really good. Okay Next up amy has to watch parasite Eddie has to watch eight mile and I have to read the cliff notes of box of moonlight. You got to watch the whole movie. Come on okay come on. I mean I don't worry mine. I have to watch great. I've seen parasite I know the subtitles or mugging you. You'll forget about it. You're just going with the bad attitude and your rating is ninety. Nine percent amy come on like that and Black Panther two of the highest rated movies and all of rotten tomatoes and I had to read subtitles a mind. So it's the same thing. Amy Subtitles on Black Panther. Yes occasionally okay. This is a different language. I I do get used to the subtitles on Marcos Mexico so I guess I could get used to the ones on this okay. Well Good luck until the end of the week defenders these movies they say the hand sanitizer. Lysol wife's all those. They won't return to normal until August at least and they are producing the stuff so fast they still can't meet the demand even with toilet paper. It could be early next year to win. The shelves are back and they're full of toilet paper. We can get someone we need it. So are you able to get toilet paper right now? We ordered some a couple. I found some not so long ago but then I needed to drop it off at my dad's he said he needed and I was like well shoot so then we ordered some and we knew it might take a while so we just were patient and I think about four weeks later it showed up A. Wow that's the delay four weeks. We're pretty good. I have So step I was doing with continental so I have some some toilet paper. I watch boxing to win the cotton out we ordered from Cotton L. And I forgot about it and when it came I thought when I saw the cotton packaging on my doorstep. I thought that you because I knew you were working with them. I was like well. This is just so sweet. Bobby got with continental in order to in my husband said No. You don't remember about a month ago. We order that crazy. It takes that long. Yeah took so long. I forgot we ordered. It couldn't find any anywhere and he hit me up so I sent him a big old bag of it. But we're doing that Sheriff Square Campaign for Charity Instagram. If you want to see that Mr Bobby bones so I saw that story and then I saw Chicago's public health director said they thinking about going to a swimming pool. Not a great idea during the crisis. Because there's something called fecal shedding here. We go to the practice of obviously being in a swimming pool. Unfortunately we do know that. There's some fecal shedding corona virus. If I can go ahead and share that and so as well as associated with pools would have locker rooms with which people would need to change. So you would have more people congregated in the same setting your thoughts. I've never heard fecal shedding before. Beagle shutters. I don't ever want to hear it again. But if you're thinking about going to pools now I get it. That's a huge. Were my kids. We love taking them to the community pool in the summer. They love being in a pool and I already know that. That's not going to be an option this summer. So I'm we're trying to figure out what we're GONNA do. We'll just tell them. No fecal shedding and they're fine. Just don't think you can control it. We put masks everybody's Butts I've been a big GERMAPHOBE before being germophobic cool from honest here and I had a bunch of surgical masks not the end ninety five type but surgical mask boxes of them whenever this thing happened because I will talk about flying on airplanes and wearing a mask. Because I don't want anybody sitting next to me but we've pretty much passed all of them out at this point. Caitlyn made a big basket and was any delivery driver. You know she leaves. The thing is like hey take it so we're pretty much down to that. It's going to be easier to get a mask. Obviously and you're seeing a lot of companies. Make them too. Because everybody's GonNa need one at some point so they're making them with like your favorite team basketball teams football teams colors so that will be easier to get but we'll have to wait a few months for all the other stuff. It's time for the good news. There's a lot of worry in the world right now. How am I gonNA pay my bills but for one group in Fort Bill in the in the whole town? They don't have to worry about their water and sewer bills thanks to an anonymous donor called up the city and said Hey I wanNA pay everybody's water and sewage for the month. That's two hundred ten thousand dollars paid by stranger love. The story is a bit risky. When you don't know how much you're paying for the anonymously like I love it but imagine you're like what I was going to everybody's water bill and then somebody had like a broken faucet one month because one time and then at some. Because that's a lot of money for one time. I was at a dinner. I think I told a story on the air now and somebody who listens to the show came over and said hey they wanna pay your your your meal for your meal at dinner and I was like. Oh they shouldn't do that. I'll pay for theirs and the waiter goes through your shirt and I was like. Yeah why and there were six people eating and I. I didn't know that I just said I want to pay for it. But yeah that's an awesome story. I love that anytime anybody can help out. That's amazing how much was I built again. Let's box two hundred and ten thousand six to ten K. Thing that is crazy anyway. That is what it's all about. That was telling me something. Good if you go to the podcast today. We're about to be done here. You can hear amy and my girlfriend. They both were in here together. Had KAYLA come up for a second and Amy got my girlfriend? Have all been something that I am not comfortable with. That's all I'm going to say I'm GONNA leave it. They're not comfortable with what you got my girlfriend and involved in it. It's not good for me but our listeners can hear that on the podcast. Also to forced movie reviews. We've been forced to watch movies by somebody else on the show and Morgan number two reviews a pretty little flowers gone. Steel Magnolias Magnolia. That's it and then lunchbox reviews Black Panther so and some surprising reviews there so you can hear that and we had some funny. Tell me something good stories. We have a a pastor.

Overcoming Past Regret, Thoughts on Income Inequality, and Is There Destiny | ASK ME ANYTHING

"You're a man of action you live life to the fullest embrace your fears and boldly charge your own path when life knocks. You down. You get back up one more time. Every time you are not easily deterred heated rugged zillion strong this is your life this we are. This is who you will become at the ended the day and after all is said and done you can call yourself a man. What's up man? Good to see again good to see you another week of Ama Orion cities like really talk once a week but we get a lot done when we do talk. Yeah I don't get a lot done. We have a lot of conversations share a lot of words. I don't know if that moves anything in the right direction. We do share a lot of words. Although I for whatever reason I was kind of going through some old messages and they were from people. Oh you know sending this message is on the Ama and kind of got me fired up last night. I was like you know what this is. Good stuff and they were reaching out and telling you how how we were helping or whatever it may be exactly exactly. Yeah really needed me last night and I kinda got fired up with a good or bad is listen to this morning Andy Brazil and then I got even more fired up and I was like okay and you do that for sure. Keep your swearing to a minimum kip if you taste totally. I'm like I'm worried about a little bit of cursing I listen to him. It's like one minute I'm like. Oh my gosh shake my head. I've been pretty good about my I My lack of swearing. which is something? I'm trying to work on. I've been pretty good at it so it's been going well. I think we've been doing good overall. Yeah I think we've been doing better better. I don't know a good but better progress house that we're on we're on the path of progress in life right. Hey a couple of things before we get too much into this thing I got a message from gentleman from Brazil. His name is ED quite honestly. Can't remember he left me a a voicemail on instagram and asked if I'd give them a shot at mcgaugh course so this is to Ed from Brazil he. It was a voicemail on instagram. I'm sorry I didn't catch his last name and even if I did. I'm not sure it'd be able to pronounce it again. But Ed from Brazil you know who you are. We're glad tuning in also. Somebody had sent me a message that I thought would be pretty good as we talk today. They said it would be good to know how you and I met. And then what we like best about each other and what we like least about each other and I'm like we're not we're are not married. The wicked hug it out. Maybe afterwards right yeah. That's right so I thought as we get this thing kicked off. Let's do that so I'll give you my perspective perspective and then and then you share yours from there. How's that sound sounds great? So keep an eye met. I think kip. You're introduced through or to the order of podcast cash rather from a mutual friend. Mr Matt Jenkins you. We just heard from him a couple of days to send us both the text and I think your initial reaction to the order man. facebook group was like what in the world is. This this is. I don't need this. I'm Outta here but you did find out if I understand correctly that we had a podcast which you joined the podcast tuned into that then not long. After I joined the Iron Council became a team leader became the right hand man man if you will then we started doing this podcast and here we are. The rest is history. So we've shared that at length. I think before anything you would add to that as far as how we meant no I I I think I listen to that. I don't even remember what the first episode was but I remember listening to the first episode because I thought that facebook group was like something the Matt Adamy too and is like my way of supporting him. So I'm like okay. Asher all join in their neighbor. Yeah all these messages and unlike what the crap crap I'm GonNa unsubscribe because this is too loud too much noise for me and then I happen to see you make a post about a podcast and I thought Oh a podcast. That's cool also. I listened to episode and it only took one I listen to one episode is like this is really good stuff and then I immediately just maybe this his part of my personality but I downloaded them all started from episode one and for like a few weeks I was just pounding through episode so I could catch up up but I wanted to have the history if that made sense and through that process. Learn about Aaron Council from you talk about it in the on the podcast and immediately knew like man. I got to join these guys at the time. You announced the first uprising. And it conflicted with something I wanted to do. It was like Dang it and so price number two obviously joined and yes history right after that. So it's been great man it's been it's been an honor to be a member of the ICU. Let alone to help. Progress the movement forward. So it's been an honor to have you for sure. What do you remember for the very first episode that you listened to by ants? I don't I don't I I know I wish I would've made note of it. You of some sort. But you wouldn't no no you didn't know what you don't also it's not like some but this is back in the day win. You only did the interview shows on Tuesdays right so it was an interview with was someone. I don't remember that interesting. Yeah all right. Well let's get into the second component of this question which is what do you what do you appreciate or admire him. And I'm just paraphrasing here. appreciator Meyer about each other. And what is one thing that maybe I can't remember exactly what he said. Lisa like but that one thing that you would the other a little cities or something like that so try to create a rift is what he I don't think I mean you and I have a pretty good relationship that we haven't pulled pulled punches if something bothers us like it's not really bothering but if there's something like we always been willing to share that with each other so all right so what I like best about hip hip. I really like kipps perspective. I like KIPP that. You're empathetic your very thoughtful. In a way that I am not I tend to be more reactionary versus you. Who is more of a thinker and let's analyze this? Let's figure it out before we jump into conclusion and rush to something. Something that isn't isn't isn't right. Based on the information we have that I really admire and appreciate you about about because again I think it complements. That's what I bring to the table. And there's value in that and it's opened up my perspective and my desire to be more empathetic and understanding of what people are experiencing your instinct without jumping to conclusion rushing to judgment. That's what I would say again. I don't know how to phrase this one thing that just like now again. I don't know how to phrase bugs me or or something I again. I don't know how As I would say at the same time you know our strengths become our weaknesses. So sometimes you want analyze and pore over the data and the information and let's get the numbers and I'm like dude. We don't need the numbers we just need to go. Yes just go go go go go. So it's like that might seem like a cop out but again our strengths. Our weaknesses. So I appreciate your perception. I appreciate. Get Your perspective your thoughtfulness. You really want to know what's going on before you make decisions but at the same time dude. I don't want to know what's going on. I just WANNA go because I tend to be a little bit more. Maybe e rely a little. Bit more intuitively as opposed to thoughtfully. So yeah that's that's that's where I'm at now that's great actually and it's funny because in that same breath those are those are your pro and con as well like the the complete opposite right. I love the fact that you're a man of action like your default behavior is will act figure it out we'll learn through that process of action and and we're not gonNA over to analyze it or whatever and the same breath I subtype sued. We need to think about this a little bit more right because we may like go down a path and go. Oh Oh ship maybe we should. We're talking about swearing hustle. Oh shoot you know maybe we should have thought about that. I because now we implemented something that maybe was ideal. We should attested tested verse. Or you know what I mean trite things out more and so it's a complete cop cop out as well because it's the complete opposite of of you but I think that's that's one of you're traits that I admire in the same breath though you know what I what through this podcast. What I've learned and I it's it's funny because I don't think I admired you for this without the experience of being involved on this podcast and it is your compassion and your drive and clarity in regards to how you see things And and I and I don't think I realized how valuable that is and Detrimental possibly you used the analogy in the past of light yourself on fire people watch and I have my own interpretation. Take what that means when you say that and part of it comes down to been open to people criticising you because the reality of it is once you once you have a strong opinion. It's kind of dangerous. Sure Dennis and it's dangerous on this platform right. I had a friend from from high school. She sent me a message on this podcast and I really thought about. I thought WHOA issue going to agree with me. ISSUE NOT GONNA agree with me and how often we go throughout our lives without a platform. Like this where you keep your opinions to yourself and and people may love you because you keep your opinion to yourself and your opinions not known and it doesn't. That's why they would love you but they don't love you they don't hate you. Yeah but once you have a platform and you're running around with at this is my opinion Bubba Bubba. This how it should be all set any gives everyone the opportunity to go. I disagree and because of this platform it really puts. It's you and me through through helping kind of on this pedestal but on the stage for one to sit back and go I agree I disagree and not only that I don't like you because I disagree. I disagree with that. I don't think we like we had. Someone made a comment the other day on Youtube. He said all been listening to you guys for Lyle Lovett. Not Listening anymore because I disagreed with like a point and I'm like Whoa. Oh that's the world. We live in several. Oh I disagree with one thing about Ryan and then I go. Screw that list now like you're not educated enough. I I like his thought process. I don't disagree. I don't agree with him here but but I still like what I hear on muscle going to grow from it. We can't do that. Yeah it's weird. It's really really weird. I had a guy emailed me the other day in fact and he said man. I really love your podcast. Loved you guys stand for and what you do but you have this one particular guest on and I don't like this guy. I had an an experience with him and etc etc.. And so it's going to take off for me to listen to your podcast again and I don't know if he was expecting an apology or a police come back like let me beg you to come listen to my podcast but I simply said hey look man like we do our best to that guys. I know the people. Do we have honor at times controversial. You're not going to dig everybody but if you honestly can't listen to the podcast because you happen to disagree a you're not like one guest. I don't know what to tell you man like I'm not here to beg for your attention or to listen to the shows like do do but I I mean this is a little ridiculous. Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. But you know why that is is because we have this completely unparalleled hello level of access to information on demand so I actually made this analogy with with my guess yesterday Scott Adams and the analogy used as do you remember like when you and I were growing up we had tapes right. That's how we listen to music tapes and so we'd have to put. Yes it mix tapes. It's right man so we'd have to put the tape in and then we'd have to listen to everything because it was kind of a pain in the butt. have to fast forward to the one song. If you really take advantage you would have the tape player that would know when there's a blank spot in a guy in. Yeah so we had these. We had these we we had tapes and before that was eight tracks right and and then we moved to CDs and then you could just skip the song that you like so music shittier because the whole album didn't need to be good. Would you just needed one good song. And then we moved from CDs to music on demand where you could literally just buy one song so if an artist has one one song out of hundreds of songs then that potentially could put him or her on the map and so what happened what music continues to get worse and worse because it used to be that the whole entire album had to be good because everybody was forced to Lissouba unwanted by a whole album for one song. Can you had to listen to the whole thing to get to the one that did you actually wanted so. This is also the problem with social media. Is that if we don't like something we just like. Delete it block it ban it you you make fun of it ridicule mocking and then move onto something that we like and then also we have this unparalleled level of confirmation bias. So now if I if there's something that said Ed that either don't like or threatens my own perception of the world then. I just banish that too outer darkness and just keep clicking on the things that I do like and then Google and all of these other platforms our facebook instagram twitter. Youtube are incentivized incentivized. For putting permission in view that you're more likely to click on which is the stuff that you agree with confirmation bias. So now we have this cycle this non quite literally as non stop. Twenty four seven cycle of information news stories. Entertainment Eamon that all caters to US individually. And then we're so conditioned to feel good about our own perception of reality that went anything challenges it because we're not used to receiving challenge to our is it's blown out of proportion and blown out of the water and we fall into this trap of what's what's the quote never formed fall into the vulgar trap of believing that every time you are contradicted your persecuted and yet if I go in and say hey man. I don't agree with this. Because dot dot dot dot that individual believes that personally attacking them like they've been conditioned to believe that that's a an actual threat to their wellbeing that somebody disagrees with them. So I know I'm rambling here but I've really tried to make a conscious effort specifically lately after reading that book for my for my guest yesterday. Scott Adams called loser. But I've really tried to make a conscious effort of even when somebody comes back with a comment. That's that's rude or whatever whatever it may be then very simply bleed just not not letting my emotions get to me and just saying hey man like you seem to be really upset. I hope you're able to work everything out and let the chips fall where they may but it's a really interesting. I don't even know how we got off on this tangent but man. That's a really interesting time that we live in a great time mm specially with social media and obviously that's how we met and got connected and that's how we're doing this podcast but at the same time you've got to be very very careful because it's easy to fall into the trap of believing that your perception of reality is the only one that matters in every information and stimulus around you is designed intentionally to support in your own current reality. You're not expanding yourself to new thoughts and ideas and I think a good example of this Ryan is you and Ryan holiday. Because a couple of episodes ago you guys talked about religion a little bit about the belief in God. I know that you believe in God. I know that Ryan holiday doesn't which I didn't didn't know that by the way until that interview you didn't get all pissed off and go with screw that I'm never bringing Ryan holiday on the pot. Why right you weren't threatened by right? It doesn't matter to me exactly and it's so funny like even the other day someone Someone Ping me on instant on instagram said. Hey we have a boy we actually. It was my cousin. He says. Megan I are having a boy we want. You know what. What's a really good book that you would recommend and I said you need to read the Boy Crisis Isis? Like you have to read it like that book is so damn and darn informative and beneficial. But here's the irony half that book I completely league kind of disagree with right right. There's aspects of not for me. I like I disagree with that aspect of it but I'm not throwing the book away right because I'm saying hey. There's some really good chunks of information here. I see where he's coming from. I may not agree with that entirely. But it's still a great book and it's funny. How so how? Easy or quickly demonize people just because they disagree with us on something and because of that we we shorten our ability to understand other people's point of view. Miss Really unfortunate it is and I would say that the the best way to combat this is just to exercise a little discernment guys. When you're you're listening to us or you're listening to another podcast with a Gr- agree with us? The yes so you just exercise discernment. It's interesting you could say you could say the sky is blue and somebody would come back and say well. Sometimes it's cloudy body and when it's night it's back and and then I'll come back and I'll say do obviously there's exceptions to that and there's times where the sky maybe isn't blue. Oh and they would say well you said and they take everything so literally it's like guys exercise some discernment exercise. I some critical thinking. Don't believe everything that you hear even with guys that you completely admire and respect question. Everything be skeptical in a healthy way not pessimistic but skeptical of the information that you're receiving confirm it from multiple sources. That don't necessarily agree. I'd be very very slow to except somebody statements as ultimate truth and then respond that way. It's it's very rarely is the case and and very rarely is it is it. Somebody's intention to deliberately mislead you or paint something so black and white and without the realization that there are exceptions things and and deviation from generally held principles. Yeah and just understand the context of things. Yes you and I we. We express our opinion opinion about based upon what where I am in life based on what I've experienced at the age of forty based upon living in the State of Utah based upon being raised on apart that's my perception. That's my context on what I understand and is that going to possibly change for us over the next ten chosen. Yeah should. We shouldn't be going to change. I'm sure at one point. We're GONNA listen to some Ama's in the past. And I'm going to go. Yeah I can't believe I said that I it kind of agree with that. Now take it for what it's worth. Yeah Yeah you should evolve and you should be growing. It should be changing. You should be thinking of new ideas and developing new thought patterns and getting new information. All of those things are plus all right. Let's get into the questions of the long us the Ryen. I think it was more about what you don't like about me than what it was now. If you guys want to hear what I like about Brian Ryan Michler then asked that question and then we can go on that other guy. I don't WanNa hear about him. All Right Kevin. Omar Omar Kevin Omar Appointee Garcia. We'll what is destined to you. This is good. This is good stuff here. What is destiny sneak to you? And what is it to Kip. Sorenson doesn't mean anything to either of you know it doesn't mean anything to me. There's there's destiny now this is where it gets tricky. Okay I'M GONNA I'M GONNA approach from a religious or spiritual belief K.. Okay this is my opinion as if I need to say that. Okay everything I say is my opinion guys all right okay. God Aw has a plan and God is all knowing omnipotent so he already knows the path for for me and you and everybody else so the question then begs if he already knows the path is their free will so is their destiny. Is there this or. There's the reason I believe that or don't really put much stock in the thought of destiny is because I don't know the path I don't know it and because I don't know it I I'm not operation operating from from the perspective of knowing what my destiny is therefore because I am ignorant to the path that is laid out before me I am free to choose. Choose my own path now. If I had a perfect understanding in a perfect knowledge of the plan I will lose my free will because then I'm making decisions regions about my life and my action based on knowing the future. I don't know the future so everything that I do is going to alter her. My current reality and therefore I don't put much stock in destiny. I also believe that destiny is a very passive way to live life because what I hear you guys say specifically from a religious spiritual perspective is well if God wants it to happen. It'll just happen if it's meant to be. It just meant to be and usually usually when I hear that somebody's B. S. excuse to be passive and and not more assertive in the way that they're living in their life the actions that they're taking the thoughts that they have and what they're ultimately making out of their life. So do I believe there's a destiny on one hand. Yes I do believe that there's a path worse and on the other hand because I don't know what the perfect path is. I am free to choose my own. Course selection the analogy I use a lot is like if you remember those Those books where it's choose your own adventure. Yeah and if you went to the very back the book you could see like what is the end result. It's already laid out for you right but you read one chapter. And because you don't know the end of the book you read one chapter and then it gives you if you want this option. Go to page ten if you want this option. Go to page seventeen because you didn't know the entire thing of the book when you got that First Section you had to make a choice based on only the information that you had at your disposal which is pages you just red so you were free to make that choice free. From knowing what your path ultimately is that makes sense. I think it does I. I like to think of Destin destiny. Sounds like a singular response. It's like it's my destiny not destinies or whatever and and so. I don't like it because I think that we all have potential and whether we reach our full potential or not what is yet to be determined and and so I I like to think of it that way of did you live a great life. Did you reach your or potential. Did you ultimately do with with life. What was available to you and take advantage of those opportunities if the answer to those things is yes S? By the time we die then. Did you reach your destiny in my definition shore. But I kinda prebuilt like it's your destiny you you know what I mean and and you you know I don't know I think we have opportunities and potential and whether we reach it or not is up to us in our agency but I don't think it's a destiny although I like the kind of the idea of it sounds Kinda cool to have a destiny but I think it's just reaching your full potential. I do believe that all of us are here for a reason. Now to your point whether we meet that reason or not is up to us through our thoughts and our actions if we if we wanted to dig deeper into this you could even ask and I have a problem with the phrase full potential. Because what does that even it's never ending. Yeah and it's it's moving so let. Let's say we'll just try to break this down into simplistic terms just for the sake of having this discussion. Let's say that I wanted to that that I could dead lift four hundred pounds right now and and that's my full all potential. That's my maximum right now right so then if I keep exercising and keep working through it then I can increase my potential potential by making myself stronger. So did I reach my full potential when I hit four hundred I reached my current potential but I didn't reach my full potential because now I'm lifting four twenty five or four fifty or whatever right so it continues to live. Yeah you're still kicking. Yeah so full. Potential is kind of a kind of an interesting one as well. Yeah and we've we've talked about stoicism quite a bit and that was the topic in the this past month in this came up a lot right of when is it over right for a STOIC. And it's like it's not until you're on your deathbed then that's the moment of somewhat of a measurement to say. Did I live a good life until then keep trying to better life. Yeah going yeah all right cool. What's next Brendan Boroughs? My wife and I have a daughter and I'm struggling to balance win to let her get away with things and went to get onto her her. Sometimes I feel like I'm hard and then not hard enough. How do you balance being fun? Dad She can go to That she can go to but being strict strict at the same time I don't I don't think they're mutually exclusive and. I don't think you should let your kids get away with anything now. The way that you approach it or discuss us it might be different depending on the severity. Of what what she may be doing but if for example I walked around the house this morning and there was a bunch of lights on in the house. Like welcome to Fatherhood Right so so I I got my two. I'm sorry I have theater up. This is such a father city as many. Yeah Yeah be a holiday. Movie is like last year and the kid was make like waking up in the middle of adjusting the thermostat O got got together like. Are you going to allow her to modify thermostat like I don't know what it is but dads thermostats and lights mad right right. Ride the man totally so I got my kids together this morning. I'm like hey guys like we just need to do a better job turning the lights off when you leave the room check to this is a clean and is the light off free time you leave a room just is a clean and is the light off now. I'M NOT GONNA. I'm not gonNA have like a complete mental breakdown over that but I'm certainly not going to let because if I excuse once then I'm basically encouraging it good and do this. Yeah it's cool. Oh that's fine or if my kids come in when the do not disturb sign is on the front on the door of my office and I'm like Oh no it's okay come on. I'll make an exception then then. I'm undermining the principle of having that thing on the door so I tell them. Hey guys if you see that sign on that means that you can't come in because I'm in a in a phone call or a meeting eating or or engaged I can't be available right now so I don't let my kids get away with anything. It's just the severity of how you approach it or the level level at which you approach it or the style that you approach it. Is it just a simple. Hey guys remember that sign you know those. Oh yeah that's right good done versus okay. This is something more more serious. There needs to be some discipline here and in that case may be punishment or some restrictions that are put in place because of the severity of what child is trying to get away with so again. I I don't think I think you should respond everything and at the same time I think. I think you should have fun with your kids. They're not they're not mutually exclusive. And I think this this comes down to the conversation of establishing boundaries and and and we went and holding those boundaries whatever those boundaries are coming up with them and you need to enforce them. You can't let your kids. You can't establish that was hit boundary and let your kids go beyond the boundary because it's not a boundary. And what are you teaching them that that when they do acts or there's a boundary established and I do it anyway. It's it'll be deal like it's a lesson that you're teaching around boundaries that is actually like more detrimental Dan the lights or whatever it. Is that your kids doing. It's the lesson being taught want want one more thing I've kind of a row today. One thing I love about this is is what some parents do. And and I like what you said Ryan because you're like what the severity in which you handle the situation and I think it comes down to not being overly Not being overly emotional or appropriately emotional base upon the scenario. And the reason why I bring this up is because I've seen this in in our our own house. Where kid does acts I overreact? or Mom overreacts in overreacts in ineffective way right. We're Yellen L.. Interrupt sat or whatever and then we say there's a consequence all well you're grounded Blah Blah Blah Blah and. Then what happens time goes by a little bit and as a parent you go. Yeah didn't handle that. Well I you know I always maybe too angry or the the consequences are severe. And then what you do go back and go. Hey sorry. I didn't mean to do that. And then you let the boundaries go And then you teach your kid. Oh okay okay. This is how this works right. MOB GETS pissed off. She'll come off the cliff and then I'll be able to get whatever I want right. And so we got to be really careful in regards parts to how we establish those boundaries. Not being overly extreme. Were We then feel guilty. And then go beyond the boundary or don't withstand the boundary or hold the boundary in place or whatever ever term. I GUESS WE WANNA use for that. I just this is damaging boundaries portion is I think super super critical and that allows you to be so crazy about it. It's like this. This was the rule set. I'm not I hate grounding you right. I hate the fact that you can't take the car because but this is the rule set in which we established. Sorry Bud gotta follow the rule and also goes without saying but making sure that you communicate what the boundary is right. Because there's a lot of people who have boundaries in their mind like what I put that sign on the door but why don't they yeah exactly. Well they don't know well there should know. Well they don't so it doesn't matter should've could've would've they don't it so communicate the boundary so there's no miscommunication about what exactly is to happen or isn't supposed to happen. Probably what's next. Do you like the by by the way I do man the are you talking about the shirt. Yeah you love it. What's what's it was saying that I don't know I don't even know if I had a shirt or a name? I think it was just like do you want to order Masher Brotherhood on the back right. Yeah that's the shirt yet brotherhood Brotherhood shirt right. There still looks good condition men. I don't wear it very often. I keep a nicer wash it so it doesn't get hardly they ever where it where it happened day. Put it back. We had this thing. I was talking with my wife the other day. I don't know how he got on the kick but we had this thing in basketball when I was in high school that you couldn't wash your practice. This way wants your practice. Jersey could stand up on its own. Then you had to wash it And I remember there was a time it so crunchy and stiff that I just like draped it and set it on the ground and it literally stayed in its form. Standing up my in my sleeveless basketball jerseys save you. I pull out of the locker. And it's all stiff crust them get all sweaty to get it like the exact so like twenty minutes into practice it finally loosen up on you a little bit sick. What else all right it Matthew Klein? What's something you wish you learned in high school to wash your clothes boards of hygiene? I don't really understand the point of these questions. I maybe you can enlighten me. I don't I don't like what's something you wish you learned in your thirties. Learn stuff all the time like just learn. I'm constantly learning things and yeah maybe I wish I I would have Leonard at earlier. But here's the catch that I had a lot of people. Ask Me this in my financial planning practice. I I would. I would teach them about investments or help them with their portfolios or whatever it was and they'd I'd say man where were you ten years ago and I'd say would you have listened ten years ago I miss said No. I probably wouldn't have enough money to invest exactly so. Don't worry about Eh. Just figure out what you need to learn right where you deficient. What information do you need to have? What skill said do you need to develop? What are your goals in ambitions and learn it now like like? Don't worry about what you should have learned ten years ago. Ten years has gone. Just what do you need to know right now and do that so the better question on this this would be. I'm not trying to disguise. I'm just saying like I get these questions a lot. The better question. There's a phrase a quote that I really like the quality of your life will be determined. Turn by the quality of your questions so let me give you instead of answering that question. Let me give you a stat. Hey Ryan I'm trying to grow my my financial planning practice. What is the single best strategy used for getting new clients infinitely better question or for? Hey Ryan I'm really trying to determine if the woman that I'm dating right now is is somebody that I should consider marrying. What are some things things to consider as you're contemplating popping the question beautiful question because it's specific and it approaches is exactly what you want to learn? Yeah well and maybe if Matthews in highschool and he's asking from the perspective of something you wish because what's something that that you would recommend that I make a proud while in high school or a better question right so a better question would be. Hey Ryan. I'm about to graduate graduate and I really don't know if I should go to college. What should I consider before I go to college or as I'm making this choice? Yeah because if you just say what's what's something you wish you learn a high school. Everything like everything. I possibly could have learned been cooler if I would have learned in high school but I didn't. Yeah well and and what. What value does that bring to the table? I mean the reality of it is made certain decisions and high school. Some of them are great. Some of them were not so great. But based upon the maturity level that I had an ice cream based upon the experiences. Those are the decisions I made like you know and even the a quote unquote bad decisions. Lead you to where you are right now totally and if you don't like where you are right now okay. Great what changes do you need to make right now and it has nothing to with your pass because well you can't change it anyway. So it's like so I hear you so I'm Gonna I'm GonNa say that the answer the question is regarding what the give me something specific and then I can answer a specific question for you and there's a lot of things so much so that I can't even think of one one thing that would be like. Oh this is the one thing I should learn high school guys. Get very specific on your questions. This will serve not only in the podcast world. But it will serve you in life whether you're interviewing or dating or advancing in your career or trying to build a band of brothers or buddies up being specific specific with your questions and asking better questions will enhance your life. Luke Watts every question. I go to write down on. I hear the answer in my head. Just do it. Adapt and overcome focus on the tactic. I'M GONNA add some use. The battle planner read sovereignty etc.. Thanks for all dinner questions. Better questions they throw the advice given since I started tuning in over a year ago. And then he asks kind of a fun question. Is there any animal that you Australian animal that you would consider eating I would try through. Ud Mad. I'd probably try eating anything if it was cooked. Kangaroo snake an alligator alligator or whatever you have alligators or crocodiles equality. Where you eat those? I don't I don't think so there too. Cute people wouldn't allow that. Oh I used to tell my kids when we got a heater and I don't know why gotten this doing this but they'd ask me what was on and I'm like Oh that's hippopotamus meat and they're like what I don't know if that hippos in Australia that's an African but they they're like what really I'm like. Yeah it's the hippopotamus pizza good. That's gross it's delicious. And then they wouldn't eat my pizza. They eat cheese pizza. And then I can have all the pizza that I wanted to my own so laid well played. Yeah I would eat. Eat lots of animals. I think qualities wallace or two on the on the too high on the cute and cuddly index for people to be okay with your eating them same thing with bear bear. People have a problem mcbarron. Because they're cute Arabs. Yes people have a cow bear. Bear kill you. Yes because they think they're cute because you have Teddy Bears Jogi Bear and you had like there's cute. Bears are not cute. There's will destroy you. My neighbors just brought some over. I've never had it before. They brought bear meat over some excited at tried. Ah Tried Moose meat for the first time just last night and it was delicious really really good. That's a lot of meat to a lot of meat. I kind of like a now onto onto. It has a different taste. But it's lean as like an elk and not very gaming not gave me at all. It was delicious. Cody alphabet. What's something from your past that you regret you read or not doing and the impact that it making your life or the lives of others have you've been able to correct it since this was the other question but I don't know yeah it? Is You know one thing I do tell people people especially the young men in our in our church organization as I tell him that I would have served a church mission so in our church when you're eighteen nineteen years old sometimes older you have the option to go on a church mission for two years and so that's something I wish I would have done. I didn't do at the time and I regret doing it. I just think you know if if I was to do it over. That's something I would take advantage of and in the future my wife and I plan on going on a mission when we get get older and retire so rectify that situation then but there isn't really anything I wish I would have done that or wish. I wouldn't have done that. I mean I made stupid the decisions and I made some smart ones as well and that's a combination of who I am today so I don't play the game of like what how do you. What's the one thing you wish you would have done? If there's something I realized is that I'm deficient in. I just correct correct now now. That's totally I. I have the permanent example of that by the way on the same way. I wish I would've went on a on a mission I didn't either And I really think for two things one. It would've gave me an opportunity to serve and and really put other people before myself. I think it would've would've pushed me in a level of maturity that I probably didn't naturally create for myself the other thing it would have kept me off of the discussion Goshen of marriage and kicking off life and tell us a little bit older and when I was a little bit more ready for it. I think I wasn't as ready a- As I was when I got married and made things difficult. But here's here's the perfect example. I got I got married. Within my first first year of college had two kids by the age of twenty two and then got divorced for all intents and purposes. Do I regret getting divorced. Do I get a divorce was great for my kids and we've had a perfect life and it would have been not. Ah It's more ideal than if we stayed no not at all completely regretted like regret emceeing. That loosely shouldn't have happened that decision however I got remarried. I have other kids and have a great wife and a great family. So can I really honestly go back and go lie. Regret it. Well not really. Because I don't know like it worked itself out right I evolved. I grew from the experience and and made positive good decisions and became the person I end today. So it's really hard for me to go back and say I regret it even the mission thing if I would've went on On my mission would. I've had my two oldest boys Brendan in probably not so. Do I regret it. No because I don't regret having begin their father and having the opportunity to raise them so I can't regret that either so great decisions maybe not but amazing things happen because of the decisions I made regardless and thus I regret them right. Yup that's why these questions are so hard right there again. It's like don't don't don't want it just if you realize that there's something that you're like. Oh Man I should have done that differently than yeah. Yep Changed Right now braid. And we've talked talked about this. How do you ensure to live without regret you grow learned for you grow from your decisions when you grow from a bad decision? Then you shouldn't regret he grab because you want to be the person you are today without that bad decision so just make sure you'll learn from your your mistakes and your decisions and then you never have regret Brady Ga- gambling any plans to livestream. Nama's or any other shows on YouTube. I this question I've got about this. It'd be it'd be Kinda Fun for guys to call in and ask ask questions but then we could have filter all you guys stupid questions. It's a good idea. I don't know can they. I don't know how it works. Do they ask questions right there in the in the threat and then resume. I guess we can try it. Maybe we'll try it fun. Maybe we won't do like a real ama but we'll just do kind of an offer. Urgent One and just see you know just experiment with it. Invite everybody from facebook and instagram over to Youtube and and just answer questions as they come in. And I'm gonNA write that down. I like that okay. What else give it a try? Just would what is a good way to start getting into hunting. My girlfriend's father is very accomplished hunter from Serbia. I'd like to be at least competent at it. The best thing to do would would so if you're not follow me on instagram. I would highly encourage that go to instagram. Dot Com Slash Ryan MIC leader. My last name is H. L. E. R. Not sometimes pronounced Ryan and over there a couple of weeks ago. I think I made a post about hunting. So just scroll through my feed and see me with a dead animal and you'll know what I'm talking about and I talk about the things that you should would do to get into hunting. And if I remember correctly step one is to you. Start following hunters on social media. If you want to be an archer start. Start falling archers if you WANNA be a hunter or rifle hunter access to this information is so readily available so follow like when it comes to bow hunting. The guys that I follow you are John. Dudley is great to follow campaigns. It's great to follow even rogue and has some great stuff on that Andy stumps the big archer like there's there's archers people hunters follow him. Follow on Youtube do what they say. That's number one number. Two is connect with people in your sphere of influence who are already hunters and ask if you can go with them and you don't even need a tag to go with them just tag along with them and help them spot and help them stock like just help. Just be there support and then you're GONNA learn a lot about hunting rifles to us and strategies to employ. There's already people in your circle fronting just asked to go hunting with them and then the third one is If I remember based on the post I think I said tap into your wildlife resource department and there's all kinds of different names for it but tapping your resource department and they have a vested interest in giving the public information about how to successfully and ethically hunt in the area so they've got a ton of different resources available and between those through theory three three things. I think you'll Started Okay Matt. Simon your thoughts on income equality in the US. Well it's a misnomer. It's a misnomer because well maybe it's not a misnomer but it doesn't paint the entire picture. Income is is not equal because performance is not equal or duties are not equal so what people that say income inequality what they're doing is they're taking like half of the equation or probably not even half the equation and they're saying this is the problem. Well that's only piece of the puzzle. That's only part of the formula. The other part of the formula is in other people. Say Well. Yeah it's it's because gender. No it's not because gender it's based on performance and it's also based on occupation so women generally pick jobs that aren't as high paying as men generally. Yeah okay so so you. Have you have nursing. You have education these Zor. These are jobs that aren't going to pay well as a doctor for example or or an entrepreneur or a CEO. Now women. Don't choose those things again. Generally or a lower degrees because they have other things they wanNA. Do you know like bringing children into the world. So they're not going to tie themselves themselves up into a career like a CEO for example or an entrepreneur necessarily because entrepreneurships. That's a little different because there are a lot of flexibility than that but let's take C. O.. For example or doctor. They're not going to tie themselves. Up into the schooling and into the debt and into the level of attention attention that career requires when they know they have aspirations to bring children into the world and potentially stay at home with the kids. So they're that's why they're not getting paid. Aid is much now. Some people will say we'll just because agenda if you take gender for example and you put a woman a man in the same job doing the same thing then women will get paid less. No they won't let me share. Studies have shown that not to be true at all. But let me share something anecdotally with you because the same people who make this Argument also make the argument. That capitalists are greedy pigs who are ruining the world so which do you think is more. True capitalists are greedy pigs that are ruining the world or that capitalist hate women. Which one do you think is more true because if you think they're greedy pigs then and if it was true that women can get paid less for the same job then wouldn't all the quote unquote greedy pigs? Only hire women because they could pay made them less to do the same job. Wouldn't that feed into the greed. Of course ooh would. So what they're saying is they're saying well no they're they're more worried about a Gender than they are. They're agreed like they're worried about raising women up than greed. You're telling me that their that their decision to A higher women for example outweighs their desire to make money like. It's a ridiculous thought. Yeah it's it's it's asinine nine and I understand when we get inundated and bombarded with clever talking points that only illustrate part of the problem. But if you're not doing doing equal work if you're not doing the same types of jobs. This is the whole thing with the the women's soccer team. He's really funny like they got so up in arms is about making less than men yes because they bring in less revenue than men when we do the same work. Well you know who gets to decide that the public public the market seven billion plus people on the planet. You your desire to make more. Money doesn't outweigh the seven billion people on the planet collective decision not to go see women's games at the same level. They're going to see men's games and it was funny because I don't remember their names. But one of the GALS. She was upset. She was team captain or whatever and she was upset and she. She demanded that she gets paid more for the same work. And and the interviewer whoever she was talking with us at what how would you solve this problem. And you know what she said she said we just really want people to support us and we want more people to come to our games. Yes that's the right. Yeah you solve it through capitalism if more people if there's a higher demand for your services in this case entertainment via soccer her then you will get paid more but until then you haven't earned and I'm sorry that it hurts your feelings. I'm sorry that you aren't as liked or relevant as other people that's reality and the way that you want something or the way that you feel about something doesn't dictate tape the way it actually plays out in reality like it's insane to believe that a nurse is going to make the same as a doctor. That's insane I mean it's insane to believe that a immense professional sports team is going to get paid the same amount as a women's professional sporting team that that brings in a tenth of the revenue. That A men's sports team does. That's insane but it's all emotional. It's wrapped up into feelings. Emotions ought to be considered. I'm not saying we shouldn't consider him. But we also ought to be reasonable and used some logic in our thinking of how this this works thoughts on equality within the labels we put on things right. Everyone listening right now. How often do you go watch the WNBA NBA? They don't they don't why 'cause it's boring boring it's boring. I WANNA see a seven foot dude. Get Get dunked on by a six one guy like flying through the air and I was like roughing it up and that's entertaining to me so instead of demonizing humanizing let's say in this my little example here in instead of demonizing the NBA insane or the NBA sexist. Why don't you just tell them the entire world that they're sexist because they don't watch WNBA because that's that's that's the scenario right? The reality of it is. There's no there's minimal profit and thus that's the result period and if it's sexist if that's what you think then fine yes the world is sexist. Because they're just not gonNA watch Women Play Sports degree that they're gonNa Watch men plays Florida's in sorry and by the way I'm not sexist. It's just not as entertaining. That's it. Well let's it's very pretty simple. Well let let's think about it from another context. Let's think about babysitting all right. So I've got young kids consider babysitters and we're not going to bring a boy babysitter into her house. Or that. sexists that sexist. Not because it is sexist but according to these people well it's not sexist. It's kind of like a racism and people say racist about this no such thing as reverse racism. It's either racist or it's not racist there's no reverse racism like you're either racist against a race of individuals people. Oh or you're not there's no qualifiers for that but it's really interesting things that people say make totally and there's certainly certainly a double standard right when we start talking about some of these topics it's an RV man it's crazy craziness. Well and I there is something going to say but you guys get it right like the reality of it is. It's like there's an article by the Salt Lake Tribune here in Utah Saying oh Utah's one one of the most In income inequality states in the nation based upon what. Let's actually use discernment people right what I ends without. I imagine the reason that is is because there's probably without knowing the data there's probably per capita or per household more more women who stay at home in Utah's homemakers than in other in other states than any other state so okay. So why. Isn't that the staff saying. Hey more mom stay at home in the State of Utah like it's the same outdoors it isn't it doesn't push an agenda right. They work part part time or they work jobs. That maybe don't carry and I'm saying women potentially Kerry jobs that don't carry as much responsibility because they want to be at home. Well why why would you think you should get paid for that. If you're this is the same thing with with employees who who scoff at the business owner who makes ten twenty one hundred times. What the employment's well? He's taking on the level of risk. You don't have any risk you lose your job. You go get another another job the the market tanks and you don't lose your house. He loses his house. He loses his credit. You just go get another job so you don't have any level of risk so don't don't you dare scold that the individual who's putting more online news carry more responsibility who's put you more more at risk because you think that you should all get paid the same. It's pathetic all right and what else. Yeah well now. I'm going to let it go. We'll talk again. I'm sure all right are answered Kyle. She'll already know man well because the technology thing is I'm in technology and there's there's a there's a I thought you were going to let it go. I'm not going to let it go. There's technology cancel the State of Utah. Every year. It's more and more about sexism X.'s. Them of course doubt. Hey we need to get more women women here and I'm like do they want to be and if they do awesome if they don't how is that wrong right. I hate the damn labels that we put on everything and say oh well and technology were closed minded. Because there's out of here okay. Well statistically if you look at the evidence are women more interested in the sciences and technology. No I'm not running around going to the. HR conventions arguing doing that. More men need to be. Hr why did you say that more women are an HR. I can't believe you do that. We're digging ourselves into a hole. We're not sexist. Guys like just think of it logically bring we're GONNA get backlash. All right kyle shields. I don't think we will not not in this podcast. I'm an is saying yes. Yeah that's real all right. What what are your morning Diet? Routines breakfast supplements intermittent fasting and etcetera. Thanks guys I just drink water in the morning that's is it by like thirty.

I it drink a glass of water you feel and then I try to eat around eleven or twelve and I don't eat after well. Generally I should say general. I don't eat after seven or eight o'clock so people say oh. You're doing intermittent fasting. Technically I guess but I just eat dinner and then I don't need anything to lunch Ashley. We over complicate these things like carnivore. Dia Kito Diet. Intermittent Fasting Lulu. Just eat clean healthy. y'All know what to eat healthy. And so like is is intermittent fasting. Good I don't know I just don't like having breakfast. I don't like working out on a full stomach and then I get into work and I'm busy and I'm excited about it and then it's like okay. It's lunchtime already so that's my operas. I'm the same I wake up by. Do take a little bit of a pre workout hits Jin rep my workout and go to work so I usually don't ever eat breakfast either but not yeah. That's what I'm saying. Don't on over thinking it. Just eat clean vegetables. Eat Me drink water. What are we are we doing on time? We take a couple more all right J. Helms what process you follow to set goals for the new year gets really J.. Really you know the hasn't listened to any episode. Has I know he's out as someone else. He's been in multiple courses of ours. He's I think he's been he is either is currently Wrigley. Your husband a member of the Iron Council. I'm going to give Jay the benefit of the doubt and say the reason he's asking is because he wants me to answer this for other people there there you go answer is in my hand right now. It's called the twelve we battleplan you can go to store dot order man dot com. Check it out or or you can check out a book. Sovereignty about the hearts and minds of men and the entire back section is dedicated to creating a twelve week battle plan which very very briefly is vision casting a vision. I for the next ninety days Then working backwards into key specific objectives in one in each of four quadrants in which you wanna accomplish within the twelve week period correct then it's working into daily tactics that you can complete on a daily basis that will move you towards those objectives four daily tactics and then it's checkpoints at thirty and sixty interval to ensure that you're on the right path and make adjustments as necessary and then it's the after action review and repeat the process in the next ninety days. Perfect Eric blankenship can ship. I know this seems insignificant. But I'm getting ready to start Brazilian Jujitsu and I have a very long beard probably two to three inches longer than yours Ryan. He he because I mean. He's saying his beard bigger than your beer. How does it affect your training? And what you do with your beard for training or is it just part of the process It sucks for training quite honestly. It's not good it's not I mean that's it that's the bottom line like I've considered cutting it considered trimming it. I've considered I haven't done that yet. Obviously I bought the Viking. I'm not GonNa do that Honi thing no going to do that. I don't no but it helps to do that may be I don't know if it would. I'll tell you this it's great. It's a great neck guard. Has People feel guilty. Don't WanNa to put their hand in there because they feel bad. Yeah and then. There's some people who don't feel bad at all. There's there's a couple of guys I roll with. Who are like I don't know? Yeah that's that's just that's your decision. Yeah Andy Stump is very much that way. You took a big frigging chunk of my beard out. And he laughed about it. So it's that's the answer. It's not good for chaining if you want to. If you want to maximize your Jujitsu then you wouldn't have a beard or you'd have abyss short and shave and cut your hair short. Cut everything short like exactly. Yeah so that's it's a tactical Michael disadvantage. So you have to decide and right now. I haven't made the decision to go that route because it's been manageable but it's actually benefit because through that process. You will gain more grit than you would. That's right and gradually I'M GONNA lose it all anyways. It gets pulled out. I lose ten percent of the volume every time I go so badly. It's going to be gone anyways. That's funny all right. Kevin Kline lizzy last watch chest. Kevin Kline listens to the order pot. And he's that's Calvin Klein maybe Kevin's his his brother rather or maybe he actually does listen he just uses a different name so we don't in. Yes this pseudonym all right. I'm currently working for a company that has made some bad financial decisions and is on the verge of closing the doors and being sold. I I have a backup plan for income in place. Would you jump ship early or write it out in hope. It works out. Well if you already have a plan in place and you feel. It's a solid plan. I would start moving towards that direction if it's an inferior. Yeah if it's an inferior plan then you know maybe you ought to maybe ought to right the ship a little bit longer but you gotta be careful too. Because if they're doing some if they're making some data can't talk shady financial decisions. You know some of that. Maybe maybe maybe come back to you so get your paycheck. Yeah right right so you need to be very very careful on this one but like I said if you it sounds like you're being smart about it Maybe Calvin tie you some things or something. When it comes to finances your brother Calix companies like doing well? Yes probably Roland is right now. Like a good one guys have never heard that one before I blame you. Sorry Kevin you like. I said if you've got got a good plan in place and and and you feel like it's a something that's GonNa move in the right direction than high cert- I would start executing on that plan and moving that quickly as possible. Well let's be honest. I mean this company. It's making bad decisions without knowing. All the facts at hand is probably not going to correct themselves right like like a mustard drastic changes now. They're selling the company which means that they'll be new management. New Management isn't probably going to trust you knowing that your company that you were work it just guilty by association. It's not a good path. You're not on a good path right now. So if you've got a plan in place maybe start executing if you don't have a plan in place then start working towards that immediately. That's for anybody else who might be listening. That is in a similar boat crew. All right good today man. That was good. It was good good.

The water supply was employers competitors after his pass cross with climate refugee maria bello rosa. An award-winning journalist. Listen is loyalty.

Palo is an internationally. Bestselling author of speculative fiction. He's won numerous awards. Has work often focuses on questions of sustainability and the environment most notably the impacts of climate change in the water knife. Imagine a future without water. The may not be that far off tallow welcome to the show. Thanks for having me so. Congratulations on the book. Thanks yeah i was. It's it's always a relief to actually see the thing that was in your mind actually finally make it onto the page and then make it out into the world so that is a process. We could talk about that all day. But lee child who's a nameless also fair the recognizable. He says about your book. These days are coming and it's always fiction explains them better than fact. This is a spectacular thriller wonderfully imagined written in racing through. It will make you think and make you thirsty now. The reason i read that partly also because of the fine comments there but do you sometimes think about lee child's comment when you're writing these kind of books that is that you might be able to explain things better through fiction than fact. Yeah absolutely actually. That's actually sort of one of my core motivations. One of the things. That i've noticed is that when you're especially when you're talking about Complex questions about the world. Oftentimes we can see small pieces of the puzzle. But we don't necessarily put the entire puzzle together and we don't actually get that into some kind of mosaic of of meaning So for example with the water knife One of the things that i started out with was you know. Sort of like small details. That mattered to me. Which were things like. The fact that lake mead which supplies water for las vegas and phoenix is a at historically low levels and has been dropping over the last decade steadily dropping over the last decade. And so when you see something like that happening each individual news story that says that lake mead is getting lower and lower Doesn't necessarily trigger a cascade of meaning for person And so for me with science fiction can do is. I can sort of look at that and then asked this question if this goes on what is the world look like if this becomes the most dominant trend. What is the world. Look like if we keep having low snowpack if we keep having the increased population in the southwest. You know if we know that climate data is saying that it is going to get hotter and drier. Put all those things together. what are we get. And then it's a bit like i dunno. It's like putting on fun house glasses or something like that. You see the world in a distorted way than But that distortion of just taking that trend in just pushing it as far out as possible sort of gives you a better understanding of like the implications of those small details. No small facts that are showing up day-to-day are you writing about your backyard. Is something that You you've seen in your lifetime Because you're familiar with the area. Yeah yeah. I am actually working with Material that i've been thinking about for a long time. I used to be the online editor at a news. Magazine called high country news which covers the western united states Make covers a lot of natural resource land use issues And i remember very distinctly must have been almost twenty years ago. matt jenkins a A reporter for us Reported on the The increasing conflicts Over colorado river water and As i sorta dug into that more and more and then there was another journalist. Name michelle my house. Who started digging in a bunch of climate change questions in the southwest and is that material sort of started to come in. You start to get this sort of like sort of general picture And then what ends up happening. Is you end up sort of sitting with that for a long time. And i've watched you know news stories come through and more news stories you sort of see this accumulation of information and at some point then part partly. I mean so where i live. I live in the western in western colorado. Which is also fairly arid region And it's dependent entirely on irrigation water for our An irrigation systems for For farming and lifestyle here in this valley So you can see very clearly. There's these connections between how much snow fell. How full your reservoir is how long your irrigation. Water will last through the summer and if you have low snowpack year you know that by august is going to be a call on the river. And you're not going to be able to get any more water for your farmland so there are things like that to that like just just from a perspective of growing up in a region that so focused on water. That's already in your background kind of understanding and then you take all this other information from working at high country news and it started to kind of come together I didn't. I didn't start working on water knife until years after i'd quit high country news and in some ways i actually didn't really wanna write about drought or climate change But there was a point where i suddenly felt like it was important and necessary and i felt like nobody else was really taking on that challenge and so i kind of went into it. That fascinating read and It is a thriller. We're gonna talk about that today. I actually went to las vegas. Once with my dad and my son we went to the hoover dam. And we're looking over the side. And i don't know what body of water that is on the other side but it was very low. That's like me. is that like okay. Yeah i mean. I could see the white on the sides of the rain bring. Yeah yeah yeah. It was amazing to me. I thought oh this is a skit. Low so so palo. I had the pleasure in january of moderating panel of experts for the humanities council because your book was selected for the state route read and we had three interesting guests on their claws albertine. He was the chair of the of drought management advisory council responsible for supporting statewide water supply. Planning we had john kessel. Thank you news award. Winning science fiction and fantasy writer and editor and professor of english at nc state university. Jackie castle she was the two thousand twenty the author of the year For her debut novel the seclusion Winner in science fiction and so the things we focused on. And i wanted to get your take on this. We kinda focused around three things. One was water rights and drought. The other was dystopia literature and the third was journalism is role in dealing with these kinds of serious issues on a start first with one rights and drought conditions. You didn't want to write too much about this almost like you don't wanna ride about something because it's hard to think about i would assume and and this is a serious issue How serious is it up. Because you know it's different out west and it is back here in north carolina. We have something called riparian rights. I learned that in law school You've got something out. There called senior water rights and that sort of weaves. Its way into the plot of this book but How serious is this issue I mean it's incredibly serious. It's it's it's water as the defining factor of development in the west And so Because of its massive scarcity and The western united states largely was undeveloped. And you have these stories things like lewis and clark. There's a long period where they crossover a great portion of the western united states. And it's not until they get to the west coast. Actually that they start the. I think the columbia river that they start seeing on native americans who actually have fat on them because they actually have access to enough food sources to actually become a well-fed And you see that sort of like there's just intense scarcity of of resources within the zone and what happened was that then we put a whole lot of our engineering know how to work and we built all these dams and we created all of these systems of diversion and these irradiation projects and we sort of made the desert bloom The problem was that we built that entire set of systems and and sort of the water that we assumed would be available from those systems during a period historically high water levels No fall totals. High high rainfall totals and so we were already kind of caught in a pinch. Where because of that because we did our allocations during this period of a historically high amount of water We already assuming there was more water in the system than there was. And then you take into that and then you had climate change and you start seeing these really really interesting sort of synergistic patterns. Where not only do you have less snowfall. But you've also got drier sort of summers and stuff like that and so you got more dust blowing around so that falls on the snow so the snow melts faster and ultimately what you have. Is you have a period where you're snowfalls but it it It melts too quickly. And so you're reservoirs sort of overflow so you don't have enough catchment at the moment when you need it. In order to distribute it so not only have two little water. You also don't have adequate catchment and then you have it Essentially snowfall in now in the rocky. Mountains is the catchment system for water across the western united states and When you have all these sort of synergistic sort of things coming together on and then you add on top of it. The fact that the entire west united states has experienced explosive growth places like phoenix. Las vegas her so much bigger than they were in the past You're starting to see a end. You know california's while you're seeing all of these different states sort of competing for a resource. Their demands have increased as the as the resource has has become more depleted. So it's it's it is the critical problem. The western united states has to solve. You know in in your area. Climate change is really going to be much more defined by things like sea level rise and how that threatens your coastal cities and things like saltwater intrusion as sea level sort of pushes into farmland and stuff like that You know it's always different for different regions. And those what impact sir like the key aspects One of the reasons why i decided to write about climate change in the southwest was because i did understand Some of the other key components about how it how how we were already environmentally 'honourable here and so it was an easier attack than if i would set it down in miami for and talked about sea-level rise or something like that. Well one of the things is transition this concept of dystopia in literature here You know as you work towards scarcity Thanks brake systems breakdown. Governed systems breakdown legal system breakdown and people start reaching for guns and anarchy. And that kind of thing. So i mentioned these terms. Riparian rights and senior water rights Like you to talk just briefly about that did you come across that Obviously in your research you did. You found out about that but Just a little bit of distinction in north carolina. You know the water flows through the rivers. You know you can take some of it out but only a reasonable amount but out there You know people can own certain rights that are senior to other people right right. That's correct at sort of first-come-first-served. Sort of if you filed on certain water water amounts so if you've got a river for example you can. You can have claim on a certain amount of that river's water you know You know so many So many portions of the river so many shares of the river and As long as you're using those they are fundamentally yours And in some cases people have absolute rights to absolute amounts of water as opposed to just simply shares of the water But yeah what you have is a sort of first. Come you know sort of first arrival you file on the water. Then later later people common they file on the water and what you have then no. Is this the process of seniority. In the way that it gets defined as like as scarcity occurs on the river The people who came latest lose their right in order to serve the people who came earlier and so that absolute right to your full share of water for a senior rightsholder means that other people are zero. Something it's not. Everybody sort of gets together and shares. Its zero the senior. Rightsholder gets everything. It's a winner. Take all sort of system. Good thing to be fighting over right. Yeah well you know. that's that. That's the right whiskeys for drinking water for fighting over but but yeah i i actually grew up. I grew up on a farm in so you could see this happen like the the water rights. The we had on our farm were far. They were only created in the nineteen fifties and so We are a significant junior rights holder. And so what you would see. Is that during drought Our water would get cut off can get off cut off as early as mid july. And then you're done you're not you're not doing a lot of farming after that And meanwhile they're still water in the river you can watch the water flow on by. It's not like the water went away. It's just not yours to touch anymore and you know when you grow up seeing that kind of stuff it also just you know it informs the way you think about the world now and i've got more when i talk to you about related to the to the plot itself and some things about the characters but this might be guitar given the fact that talked about water scarcity fee daloa low rating. From your book. This is a a section of the book that talks about Sort of the view from the phoenix area. Which is sort of at the palm bottom of the water chain here yen when it comes to things and I thought it was an interesting rate. section the book because it actually described some of the scarcely t and really stark terms. So can you set up in. Can if you would read that force sure. This is a section where Via orosa. Who doesn't know much about water is having having some water rights Sort of explained and having some of the infrastructure explained to her about how How waterworks in. Why phoenix exists in how it exists. Who is the in this Scientist oh let's see this is. This should be retained. Actually and he's a he's a water rights guy who'd basic. He's he's a water guy. Who helps this company Look for in drill. For aquifer water in the in the arizona area Which is sort of a scam. He's like there's no water to be found but we just pretend like there. Isn't we keep getting paid to go out and hunt for more water. So but Yeah so he's explaining to maria how things work and and honestly this was sort of you know. This is one of these opportunities where you're trying to explain to a larger audience. Also you know. Here's this weird corner of the world like check this out and let's take a look at it. So he opened a map of arizona. Then zoomed in on phoenix. He pointed a thin blue line wrapped around the northern edge of the city and traced its wet traced it west across the desert. In contrast to the lumps of ranged hills and mountains around phoenix. The blue line was straight as a ruler. It bent a few times but it lay on the land is of someone had sliced the desert with an exacto blade. When he zoomed in maria could see the pale yellow of the desert and black rocky hills a few lonely sawara casting shadows and they were down on top of an emerald river of water flowing along a concrete lined canal. Ratan scroll the map. Further west following the straight ruled artificial river until it reached a wide pool of blue glittering with desert sunlight lake havasu and feeding it a squiggly blue line colorado river. The cap is arizona's iv drip for tan explained it pumps water up out of the colorado river and brings it three hundred miles across the desert to phoenix. Almost everything else. That phoenix depends on for water is done for roosevelt. Reservoir is about dried up the bear day in salt rivers or practically seasonal yakkers refers. Around here are all pumped to how but phoenix still has a pulse because of the cap he drew back the map following the distance of the canal. Again the slender line crossing all that desert his finger lingered over it. You see how tiny that line is right. How far it's gotta go and it's coming out of a river that a lot of other people want to use to california pumps out of lake havasu to in katherine case up in nevada doesn't like letting water down to havasu at all because she needs it up in lake mead. And then you've got all the lunatics further up river in colorado and wyoming and utah. Who keeps saying they aren't going to send any water down to the lower basin states at all they like to say it's there's there mountains they're still. He tapped the caps slender blue line again. That's a lot of people fighting over to little water and that's a mighty vulnerable line. Someone bombed the cap wants almost not phoenix off. Lean back and grinned. And that's why they're hiring people like me. Phoenix needs backups. If someone comes after them again. He made a dismissive gesture they're done for. But if i find a decent offer phoenix as golden. It can even grow again. Will you find something. Maria asked re laughed. Probably not but people will grab meraj. They think will save them if they're thirsty enough. So i go out with my maps and my drilling crews. I look busy and i tell people where to punch holes in the desert and phoenix. Hoping we'll come back with some mother load of aquifer so they can stop worrying about how they stand on the colorado river and they can stop looking over their shoulders at vegas in california. If i find some new magical water source that will be saved. I guess it could happen. I've heard of miracles. Mary perisher believe jesus walked on water. So maybe he offers to rush that so listeners. Just so you know catherine cases mentioned in this reading She's a corrupt business. Magnate who controls in the store. The nevada water supplies and the luxury arcologies structures that shelter the rich She's part of the syndicate that sabotages of rival states. In fact you know like any get thriller Palo you open the story with sort of helicopter rush toward a small town an angel velasquez. Who's the main character here. main protagonist an evil protagonist. He's he's dropping in there and he's got this Nickname the water which also touted your book You know that's a pretty star sane. You got this person. Who's running sort of the water supply of the colorado river. Cutting people out with brute force you know an extra thriller clearly But you know in water becomes scarce Who's to say right. I mean so the way that this book is sort of designed is it definitely goes on certain sort of sumptious about the way human beings Are deciding to behave. it's not. It's not predictive necessarily but it it sort of on the assumption. That people are both stupid. Greedy and thinking zero Some terms And so this is the kind of future you get if people are stupid. Greedy and thinking zero temps some terms. Oh and also don't plan for the future And so what you got at this point. Is this zero. Some idea that like las vegas needs this water you know. Have you city. Want some to and vegas doesn't want to let him have it. And so the simplest thing is to do is to blow up. Havasu city's water treatment plant and problem solve. They can't pump water. Begs gets to keep their water. Done deal This is going on in. This is built on a set of other sort of political assumptions about the united states. Had to do with power becoming more and more devolves to the states the federal government becoming more and more anemic and starved and and dysfunctional Because of you know existing and ongoing policies by political parties And so you know by this time. Like states really are thinking and cities are thinking in terms of like not of themselves as americans anymore but more as you know citizens of nevada our citizens of arizona california or whatever And because of that then they start looking at one another as as disposable And so that's kind of this backdrop of of political values that informs this other zero-sum attitude towards water and water solutions. Certainly going to make me think twice again. When i go to phoenix to play golf and a seal water sprinklers. Taking care of surreal green grass out there a little bit for our listeners. About the about self. it's in the near future. The colorado river sort of dribbled to a trickle. You've got this detective. Assassin spies angel velazquez and water knife. He's cutting water out of the 007 of water i guess and i was thinking of him. Yeah but I thought it was. It was fun that You know a little bit of political satire here but you got maria villarosa. Who's a refugee from mexico right instead of texas. You know they're keeping people out from the state of texas from coming in right. So payback is a bitch. Guess but right so we got so little. Bit here about The plot here. Because you got three characters in one on this lucy monroe and it kinda gets back to my question earlier. I was going to get to this other thing we talked about. North on-demand council is journalism in the role. That it can play You're you're journalist obviously worked as character into the story. You've got some background there You deal with a couple of things here how journalists cope in these environments And also you know will they be believed With what they're tell I like to talk about that a little bit. Because with we've been through a lot in this country With people not believing journalists. And you know the time comes and somebody's telling me there's a water shortage And there are journalists on to believe them. What's what are we gonna do about that ella. So yeah we. We live in a disinformation ecosystem. These days So yeah. Lucy is sort of She's she's interesting to me because she first of all she allows me to to tell a story where she gets to sort of give you an overview of what's happening at phoenix. She's watching phoenix fall. Apart from lack of planning it gives the reader a chance to also see from a variety of perspectives. What's going on and to understand. Sort of the larger sort of framework of of phoenix. Falling apart even as lucy herself tries to survive and get stories out and stuff like that I've been noticing years ago like because i was online editor. I was already noticing. A trend where news was moving towards click bait And especially as as we shifted more and more of our audiences online in that became a measurable you could tell which stories performed which stories didn't What you saw was a sort of a maximization of both telling the kinds of stories that an audience wants to hear But also telling them in. The punchy is possible way And so what you end up with his pandering That's what you have when you have like. You know tucker carlson or somebody like that. They're they're professional panders in the paid a lot of money to do it tucker across gets paid ten million dollars a year to make people angry And so what you saw though is like because in especially in print media But you know as a non on media you see the performance of every single story. Does this get clicks is generating ad revenue. And you know if if your motivation is profit if you're if you're news motivation is profit that leads towards telling the the most punchy exciting stimulating Stories possible And doing that in the most stimulating way possible And the problem with that. Is that like a lot of the most important stories that we face are complex. Difficult to understand in a single scoop serving and They need a lot of context and they need a lot of thought and they take a lot of words You can't understand even the impact of climate change in one single town or one single region without expending paragraphs in paragraphs in paragraphs to try to explain all of the things that are sort of coming together to make this a problem in this particular spot. Then you move that to another spot. You talk about north carolina. You talk about florida. are you. Talking about the northeast or canada. Whatever you're going to have a different set in so late when you're talking about these big global impact stories and in this is the case for most of our situations as human beings right. Now we are seven billion a billion people on the planet or whatever We generate complex storylines You know our resource inputs come from around the globe. Our trash goes to other places around the globe we are. We are global species with globally complex problems. That were generating. And then you know at the same time as our news media is becoming more and more simplified and and sort of i would say animalistic relay And so at the very time that we need to be wisest. Most most thoughtful. Most forward-looking were becoming. Our news. media is becoming more visceral more A hyper stimulating and more sort of quick punchy and and lacking in context You know they say that there's all saying you know. Truth is stranger than fiction. But i don't know about size fish sometimes into stope fix fiction may be just a strange as the truth and You know in this case I saw quote in here. That i pulled out only really live when they're about to die before then it's all a waste. You don't appreciate how good it is into you really in the shit. That was what came. And that's essentially how we live our lives when it comes to things like climate change. Sometimes you know until it actually knocks us in on the side of the head until the spic. It's not working right. Wells not pumping you not at that urgent. An issue so Yes so so. It's nice that you can put it in a book like this that's You know. Entertaining scott plotting follow the characters. You can deal with them but when that journalism stuff was going on in this book and you talked about click vitamin mean that the kind of things they were latching onto where the deaths and the pictures of the gruesome deaths and those rights were getting all the headlines and not the the so the search for the water right and we saw this all the time when we when i was working for high country news the the most important stories that we were writing were ones. That didn't necessarily get the response that writing a little funny tidbit did Oftentimes like honestly the stories that we need to hear or not the stories. We wanna hear you know. We used to have readers all the times. stopped subscribing because they were just too depressed by the news that we are warning and they were like. I can't take it near like. I understand that. That's you know emotionally. Want to protect yourself from these things but You know we're going to solve problems. We actually have to look at these. There's a again that's that problem of pandering to you. Make your audience feel comfortable. And thereby keep their subscriptions to keep your advertising revenue op or do you give them truth or what they need to hear. That will make them feel uncomfortable and and yet is is incredibly necessary for them to be effective citizens. Well it's definitely a book that'll make you feel uncomfortable. This also booked it'll take you on a on a thrilling ride. And i've got a few questions for you writing life before we finish this Interview listeners let you know that we're going to jump over after this Apollo and our and we're going to do a little petro up so the owner writing stope infection and and use this book as a framework for that. And you can. You can say us there at Hr pat r u n dot com for slash charlotte raiders. Podcast all one word. But pal we do this on the show sometimes S deriding life questions and for you. The kind of work that you right I'm just curious about this. Do you set out to learn something value about the world when you're writing a novel to impart value or part something of value with what you're writing a little bit of both so you know it's interesting i actually i have this so so first of all like at at base one of the things that my my my main goal is that i want entertain I want people to enjoy reading a story because it's interesting engaging you know it takes them all the way through And that's partly because those are the stories that i grew up reading and enjoying when i was a kid and I've always hated the idea that that reading should be sort of a. I don't know your started experience. So if it's not fun thrilling exciting. Engaging you know you're already failed is an author and so that's kind of like the starting point and that's the kind of the puzzle that i'm actually trying to solve is how do i say something that's meaningful or important In a way. That's engaging and how you know where's the crossing point the win win that you can pull that off sort of But the story ideas that i come for y y choose. A certain story oftentimes has to do most with. I'm looking for a trend. Line around me i'm trying to. I'm always watching the world. I'm sort of looking at trends. And i'm looking at dynamics and stuff in and when i see a detail and it's in it's never it's it's never clear whether it's going to be but there'll be a detail on notice and and for whatever reason it sort of goes off in my head. It's like a little explosion it's like oh that's important. Oh i think this is. Actually we need to think about this. I need to think about this. This is strange You know so you know. An example of that is that sort of like seeing Las vegas had built you know. They had intake number one at one point into into lake mead and then the lake water went below that and so then they had to drill another one in lower down and so they could pump out of lake. Mead and lake mead got lower again and they had to drill they now got intake number three it was like this billion dollar mega megaproject or whatever. They basically drilled into the bottom of the lake. And and you know you watch that. And then you're like this is a pattern like telling us something and each stage is like they don't quite tell the big story they only tell the little like what's the big story here there's something going on and so latch onto something like that and then i start you know and then a longtime it takes a long time for me to find either the access point or what i want to say or how i wanna talk about it in a way that's meaningful Because like the there's this little trigger of like the seems relevant. You know it's the same thing with like seeing like you know. You know tucker. Carlson gets paid ten million dollars. A year or rush limbaugh gets paid fifty million dollars a year To make americans angry at each other. You know you see that that's a. That's a trend interesting. That's a strange incentive. Where does that go like. This is actually important. I think if our entertainment systems are built around this go like. I don't think i can take that book. I don't know i mean. Yeah no i've written. I wrote a short story called american gold mine about that actually specifically a lot of times i'll write short stories to take my first attack on something These ideas so i can start spinning them out. And i wrote the american goldmine specifically because of that. It's like this is interesting. There's a profit motivation to make. Americans mad like okay like Another form of click bird. I guess yeah no absolutely. I've been you know and so But that's what i you know. There's that moment. And the reason. Why actually haven't i had a hard time writing lately about a lot of different things because i have the sense that everybody is right now. Is sort of hyper aware of trends. You know hyper aware of dynamics and stuff like that. And if i don't feel like. I have anything to add that particular conversation and i don't you know that was one of the reasons why i didn't write about. Climate change at one point was because i was like this is actually gonna get handled. I think you know smart. People are involved in stuff like that and And then there was a moment where i was like. Oh no actually. We are not actually engaged with this yet. I do wanna dive in here. Took a little more lighthearted approach to an already trilogy of books about lawyers who save christmas and in the third but there are some things that are happening in one of the things that's happening at the north pole melting and there's conspiracy related to mineral drilling in the arctic nice. I like it so but it's kind of in the vein of my cousin. Vinny meets miracle on thirty fourth street though. So it's a little bit different different type there. Yes one last question. We're going to jump over to pay patriot here but ask authors who experienced like yourself What you tell your younger writing self a that. Had you known it Might have helped you. You know sooner rather than later you know boy. Every every writer sort of has the strange journey Where you know they sort of are earning their bones and one of the things that i probably tell myself. Actually looking back is I mean there are two things going on like. I remember when i turned thirty. I'd already been writing for like five or six years. When i turned thirty i remember. I broke down and cried because i'd written multiple books that hadn't sold. Nobody bought the no way wanted them. i was working on a new book and it was going in eventually at also failed and then i wrote another book after that like that also failed so like i wrote four novels that were completely rejected before. I had any breakthroughs. So you know there's one thing that you sort of want to reach back in sort of pat yourself on the head and say they're they're it's okay you know eventually we'll sort this out This is going somewhere. You're not insane. Even though everybody around you fix your loser like you're not calm so there's but there's something else actually more important. I feel like that. I wish i had that ice still like have to tell myself in this. Become much clearer as gone to career. And that's If i could go back and tell myself. Don't worry about the outcomes. Focus on the writing focused on enjoying the writing. Focus on the things that you can control. You can control the you're right and you can control that you enjoy what you're writing that. The act of writing itself should be an exploration and a pleasure and a joy Don't make it a misery. Make it a joy Because that's something that's within years of control regardless and to center yourself well in that space whether whether you're successful or whether you're not successful it means that you're a much more resilient spot And that would be the thing that like really like you know. It's it's only become more and more clear over the years that that's that's where you wanna be as artist as you want to be centered in that space like oh. This is interesting for me. I'm engaged. I'm enjoying this. That's where i'm going to focus not on whether or not some the bikes mir whatever such great advice. And i've heard so many times. I've interviewed more than two hundred authors now and a couple years here and and asked that question. There's a theme there. People figure it out. They get their their overnight successes but it takes them six to ten years to get there and so okay. Well look listeners.

July 6th: Native Americans mascots banned from CO public schools HR 1

"Southern colorado never stops neither do we. This is no co now presented by shanin agency. Here's tanner swint. Good tuesday morning or the car at a welcome in to the auto collision specialist studios. Thanks for being with us here. Everybody had a great fourth of july weekend. Was able to celebrate and enjoy and fly that american flag over the weekend. We're excited to be back with you on this tuesday morning fund. Show ahead of us. I m tanner. Swint rank kelly during the production work for us as always as we get. Things started off with the start of our week as we do every single week we bring in now kris van veen director reporting for nine news or syrupy for before. Vip guests. chris. This of july seemed a more normal more firework shows off. How did you spend your fourth listening to the firework shows in my neighborhood. Unsanctioned cyrus neighborhood sift so do you do you still. He still stayed out there and appreciate that or does it get under your skin a little bit. It's always a little unnerved ing It you know. I look i when i when i was younger lad. I used to partake in some fireworks displays myself of now that i'm a homeowner element a little bit. More nervous about this fireworks landing on my roots. Right that's fair. That's very the cuts coincided of things. Start to plan a little bit more as we get older. Chris we ve in this conversation. I thought it was an interesting one that popped up over the weekend As you know weed seem to turn everything into politics and now an argument being a made out there about what is patriotism. And and what does it look like in people being called unpatriotic and this and that your thoughts on that rhetoric happen over the weekend. It's a little tough. I mean fourth of july is a weekend that we it's a week is a day that we celebrate happen to fall on a weekend this year. i love this country. I love what this country stands for. I believe in the power of this country. I also think it's strange that we can't take a look backwards and sort of say. Where have we made mistakes when we had some false whenever we missed when when we had some missteps that's okay. I don't think patriotism is sort of like owned by people who say it's our way or the highway. That seems a little bit unpack in not patriotic to me. I think patriotism in is this idea is it believes in the country and a belief in the countries systems. That can always make better than where it is right now. Yeah i think that's that's really well said and of course there's going to be that that let's call it traditional thinking of you know. America's is baseball and apple pie and fireworks. And there's the traditional signs of patriotism right but that doesn't mean the exact same way of thinking is that that as well lots of people have all sorts of their traditional ideas of what fourth of july means to them. And i think we should be comfortable with that idea like this. Is this if if if this country truly is a melting pot of ideas and ideologies and people are coming into this country for a variety of reasons. I think we should embrace that. I think what this country has as center is the idea that it can change for the better that perfection has not been obtained and that we can get better as we move along and i think history has shown us that yes. We have gotten better as the years. Go by and we've done things better as years progressed. But we have a achieved perfection. Yet i think the great thing about this country. And i say this is a staunch proponent of the first amendment is that we also get to tell the country when we don't like it what we don't like about that is not common at a lot of countries particularly in a lot of countries in the history of the world and that's a great thing about this country. We can disagree with our leaders. We can tell our leaders to go to heck. We can tell her lead us to do this or that. We believe in this country so much that we feel okay when the with the ability of one of a person to disagree with it. I think that's really really well. Said Chris there is some comments that that really did kind my eye though as well congresswoman corey bush In a tweet saying when they say that the fourth of july is about american freedom. Remember this the freedom they're referring to for white people. The latest stolen land in black people still aren't free. That was that had a pretty good pretty severe whiplash back on her. Yeah and i think i think that you know. She's free to say what she wants. And people are free to sort of like sort of disagree or agree whisper. I think the underlying the underlying idea that we've got to be okay with. Is that look when we look back at. Our founding fathers founding fathers were sort of like these sort of like Saints that were capable of no sin. They were human just like the rest of us and they what they did was set in motion a really great framework of ideology for where this country and how this country can progress and yet it was built on imperfections. This country has been built on imperfection. It's okay to admit that. I think is so strange idea that like we have like if if if you were a white male in the early nineteen hundreds orleans great for you. Generally wasn't for black americans for hispanic americans and it has and there's still work to be done and what. I find strange as this idea that it's great now that everything's done We're perfect now. We figured it out and racism doesn't exist anymore and sexism it doesn't exist anymore like all you have to do is open your eyes and sort of like yeah it just and that's okay to admit that because it by be winning it is sort of taking the first step to sort of getting better at it and we've got to get better at some of these issues that our country right well in the first step to solving any problem is is admitting that there is one there. There's no doubt 'cause fate of director reporting for nine news. But i feel like it's easy to get hung up on that a little bit ride About some of the things that were we do need to continue to work on winning reality when you look around you know. We've got a pretty good system. Put in place compared to other places in the world and i think that's the challenge that you have to look at what we have and what the system that we have in place right now is is is is is an incorrect system absolutely and there are many numerous problems with it but you look around the world and and sort of always say well. If you don't like the system that we have what system is doing better And i don't know what the i there's not a great answer to that right now. There's rose i. I think i think one of the challenges for a capitalistic society. Such as ours is that it's building some pretty grotesque inequalities within the system. And that's going to lead to some tensions moving forward and you can't ignore that either. But i do think that this is a great country. I believe in this country. I believe in what this country stands for Does it mean that it's perfect nope But doesn't mean that it's sort of built on this idea ideology that can be better. Yes so yeah. I think that's the message there is that that we've got a thing in place right a system in place that we can't always strive to do even better than where rat and i think that's kind of our obligation as americans to do that Chris let's switch this up a little bit. Let's talk a little bit. Covert nineteen numbers here Colorado now has at least hit seventy percent of of people vaccinated with the first shot. And i think there's this reliance on this magical number of seventy percent and that the president put forward a few months ago as the goal and it was certainly a war worthy goal but nothing magically happens when you move from sixty nine percent to seventy percent we're still sort of the unvaccinated population still remains vulnerable to the virus. There is the very. That's that is certainly swimming around the delta variant. I think with teachers thing. I just looked at the numbers right before. I got on the phone with you. And cases are now going up a little bit in the state of colorado and hospitalizations are ticking upward as well Nothing like we've seen in previous bikes. It is a very very very slow upward trend Just by a couple of new patients a day or by ten or twelve new cases a day so it is a very slow increase but it sort of it it there and certainly worthy of paying attention to because we need to see where this goes still everything that's out there right now says that the delta variant is is not great at breaking through with people who have who have who've been vaccinated particularly people who've been vaccinated twice with modern and the pfizer. Vaccines that's really the great news. And the good news still out there that it's was joke. It's really really good at keeping you from getting really really sick and still rings true and we're seeing that around the world but it's just definitely something we're going to have to monitor as we move forward because the variant is out there and we still have a significant part of the population that remains unvaccinated. And really the risk for those folks. And i think the word is out. I mean the word is out on a as we've talked about before. I don't believe in mandating zine but i do believe in the idea that you have to tell people. Look if you are out in about thinking thinking about the fourth of july weekend thing about how many more contacts you potentially had this fourth of july compared to last july many many more and in unvaccinated population if you're unvaccinated and you were having many many more context even when activity is low. This virus is really good at finding people who are not vaccinated. You hang out with somebody around somebody particularly indoors and because of that we still have a lot of percentage of this population that remains very vulnerable to very serious virus to a very serious disease. And because of that you know but but then you sort of have to take take that news with the idea like book the words out if you chose not to be vaccinated by now you sort of taking your fate in your own hands and i like this isn't just like sort of like this is sort of lie to sort of cover up of a vaccine. That's no good or a vaccine. That's changing your dna. This is the truth. The vaccine is the single best thing. We have at preventing the spread of the disease. It is demonstrably so it is provable. So probably true it is all out there it is what is reality right now and because of that get vaccinated you do a really good job of slowing the virus but again the words out there. Have you chosen now to get knocked. Get vaccinated it's your own choice and you and and and the consequences that may or may not follow your own choices. Well so now that we talked about things going up. Just a tick right. I mean you mentioned very very small compared to what we've seen in the past with seventy percent of the population. At least having you know and like you said that it's not a magical number but with seventy percent of the population having at least the first shot do you expect to colorado's pretty good spot that even if this the delta very does continue to flow around we're we're not going to see any sort of early warning signs of a lockdown or something like that right. No no and i. And i think you know there are what. What's what's interesting now about the environment that we live in is that there are. There's the proverbial canary in the coalmine that exists in countries around the world so lots of countries or having sort of upticks and other places. And and the thing you have to ask yourself. Are you seeing sharp upticks in hospitalizations of people who have been vaccinated to me. That is the quintessential canary in the coal mine. This idea that people are getting really really sick when they've been vaccinated. We're seeing breakthrough cases around the world. We're seeing breakthrough cases in here in colorado. But they're still at the numbers you would expect with. The effectiveness of the vaccine is not one hundred percent effective. It can be breakthrough cases. So i think we're there's warning signs that exists. But i gotta tell you. This is that i do believe that. You're going to see more pressure. If if you start to see cases go up again of bringing that not lockdowns or economic restrictions but of the mask mandates that had had gone before so the math mandates are gone now almost universally league and i think the question for public health officials is if we start to see those cases. Go up a slight uptick but more sharp increase. Will we see more pressure from public health officials to bring back mathematics. Because there's lots of people who work in healthcare right now. Who want to see that happen. And the question is will it get bad enough where people br where people wanna bring that back. I think that's really the first one. You're not gonna see sort of hardcore economic restrictions it unless something changes unless there's a varying right now. That's not. It's not swimming around right now. That's really effective at breaking through the vaccine unless something unforseen happens right now if everything goes right now the way it's going you're not gonna see lockdown that obviously things can change but i do think if everything goes the way that you're seeing right now you're going to see more pressure to bring back masks in public settings and i know that's not great news for people. Some people really hate him. We we've seen it. We've heard it. Some people hate masks. But as i've always said Master and a panacea but they are good at slowing the spread when lots of people wear masks and so. I think that's going to be a question moving forward. That's not going to happen the next week or so but it's something to keep in mind as we move throughout the year talking with chris van director of reporting four nine news you talked about the delta very we're talking about colorado specifically chris what are we seeing throughout the rest of the country with delta variant. Are we seeing small upticks and other states as well. Yeah you are in colorado's really sort of a little bit ahead of the curve because we and not the greatest of waves because we saw that increase that really sort of like at least When it started show itself out in mesa county on the west slope and be an incense. They've identified the delta variant in colorado. It's really become the dominant vary and shows what it shows is that it's better than the other variants that sort of transmissibility. It's better sort of spreading itself around and it's now to the point where when they're looking for variance in the state of car out of the majority of cases that they're seeing of adult variant. I tell people now if you get covid today if you start to show symptoms today chances are really really really good that you have the delta very it's becoming the dominant strain that the question is what does it do from there. Does it burn itself out. It's burn itself out some other countries or does it keep on going. The wall effective wall that we have is that sort of seventy percent of people of eligible people have been vaccinated at least with one shot. That's a good. Wow that's a. That's an effective wall against against sort of that sharp increases and i don't think we'll see sharp increases but it's there and it's present tiger with van redirected reporting four nine news says we talk about this delta variant and. It's something that you know it'll be interesting to see. Is we have these these events that are back. One hundred percent capacity. You know you're talking about the rockies games it will be all star game coming up Chris some concerns about this imo. Be all star game coming to coors field in coming to denver. And what are some of those positives economically speaking that we could seattle this like i think like you said it's good news and it's like moves to watch. I don't think it's bad news but you're gonna have you're gonna have some are gonna have a decent amount of people here in town. I i do believe there's there's a a reporter that i know really well. His name's noah prance ski. He worked out on the east coast and he did a lot of stories in tampa the over inflated ideas of economic wellbeing when when all star games are super bowls or whatever coming to town. I do believe that that sometimes economic numbers are sort of overly inflated. But it's good news. It's good visibility for the city. It's good visibility for the downtown area. Which is really been sort of hurting for a number of months in denver I'm not terribly worried about spread and outdoor settings think. That's fine relatively speaking. You're gonna have a lot. More people mingling in bars. I think the lesson is you know vaccination vaccination vaccination. It's still out there. So i think that's the good news. I don't necessarily see it as bad news. But it's you know it's it's good to see an all star game here. I know we it comes to the detriment of atlanta but it was good to see the city sort of mobilize rally rather quickly and get that going here. Yeah there's there is no doubt about that And hey the rockies points pretty good baseball right now. Winter's six the last seven so he can't be mad at that. Isn't it amazing. I wonder i you know if i was more of a baseball nerd. I look this set up. I think in the history of baseball. There's been a May maybe once or twice. A team has such a vast difference in output versus home games vs away games. And you're you have six wins on the road and yet they're the best team as of like yesterday and home record major league baseball. That's crazy. it makes happen. I don't know it makes no sense at all you know. And that's what we've been talking about And i've been talking about on this program. A lot is hill. Is it just the coors field hangover but he all winning six games on the road. There's something else play there. I think there's some. I think this is where science comes in becomes involved. I think there's some science in terms of what the baseball does it does not do When when you're playing an altitude. And i think that's always been a challenge for rocky shedders and pitchers sort of get used to that difference because when you're operating at such a high level as as players major league baseball or i mean they're they're the best in the world at what they do and and just small changes in the ability to sort of rotated baseball or how much further a baseball can go can make a difference in the game. And i think you've seen that historically in colorado the craftiest out is to become scientifically six wins on the row on the road and yet having the best team in baseball at home doesn't take any sense. That's what we have right now. something that the law of averages has to come into play here at some point. I would assume so Chris before i let you go This story out of florida is one that we've been covering obviously with that condo collapse stories like this or so hard to report on because you know what kind of the inevitable end is going to be here. How harder stories like this to report on an and specifically this one talked me through that well and here's where i think you know again we're looking in. It's easier from east easy for me to say this. I think journalism has not done a great job with the story in general because now it's really sort of this sort of like twenty fifth victim found every day. There's a new headline twenty six whatever number it is at the present moment And it's sort of like look would they ha- there's there's more than one hundred people missing we. We know what's happened We know their bodies that are still in there and it's horrible on those families that are involved it's horrible on the community horrible for the country And yet you know. I think this is where we have to come out and say look instead of this sort of allowing headline driven journalism. Sort of bring out new story. Let's talk about context. Let's talk about things that are more that are more important in terms of stability of buildings in the immediate vicinity and then just looking at infrastructure in this country. This country does have a problem. with infrastructure lot of infrastructure is doing and we haven't done a great job of keeping up so i think that's those are interesting journalistic alex to go for. It's just an awful story all the way around and and certainly it's you know particularly for those families that are directly involved. What an awful story it is. And it's i mean just wrenching to read in report on every single day kris van restricted reporting for nine as chris. What are you working on. What are you going to be watching this coming week. I'm just getting back into work mode Right i i took the weekend off so it was nice. It was nice to just unplug for a few days. I know got some sort of you know getting back of course interesting. I'm heading back to a court hearing today. I'm heading to a court hearing this afternoon Where the judge has opened up the courthouse to everybody with no covert restrictions. Keep in mind. We've our legal system has been on pause in large part because of covid over the last year and a half and now things like they have this tremendous backlog in the state of colorado in states around the country when it comes to cove it. So you know it'll be it'll be nice to get back into a courtroom i. I spent the early parts of my career going into all the time.

You're wondering why it sounds like that. That would be exactly why So let's Let's dive into this. This is The our accessories the flair and hair poll question Coming back in Asked where you were talking about the release timpee now that the stampede is up and over to the greeley stampede. Live up to your expectations. Was this something was. Was it as good as you thought it was going to be was at not there. Let us know Text into the tech side night.

Also give us a comment on our facebook page at noko now at no on facebook and we can get into. We can get those out there as well. got a text here. So are we gonna call you the mast texter or you're gonna changes. I don't know we'll we'll talk. We'll talk about this But he says no fireworks by the city of denver because they didn't want the spread to grow but eight days later. They'll hold the all star game hypocrisy. Yeah i mean. Obviously there's been some stuff that doesn't make much sense. I'll just put it that way because if we can be all in coors field and one hundred percent capacity there. Why not the fireworks. Look i. i'm gonna get on a little bit of soapbox here. it's been a little bit annoying. I don't like the guy that's like dick about the animals when you do that man when he laid off the fireworks. I don't like that. I don't like that take because you're the won't bought the animals you know that one day every single year there's gonna be fireworks. There's gonna be fireworks out there so leave. I guess if you don't want that right i mean so get out of there If you know what. Your dog being subjected to that. But i don't think that it's fair to ask other. People do change how we celebrate the fourth of july because fido gets a little scared with a big boom goes off. I don't i don't like that. So if you're one of those guys that put that out there one of those people over the weekend that said. hey I don't i don't like these fireworks because Because of my dog yet. No it's not gonna work the greeley stampede. Put on one heck of a firework show. I thought it was an interesting year for the greeley stampede. The ninety ninth annual right. It'll be the one hundred next year. The concerts were interesting really We had that big rain last week. That kind of got in the way there but it. It just felt like it wasn't quite there. It just felt like it wasn't quite back to one hundred percent and we know that they would take some time before. That would be the case. But i thought it would be closer. I thought there would be more of a turnout. And i'll be interested to see when this is all said and done what ends up being. I will be interested to see when it's all said and done. What did they greeley stampede. Do this year. What was the attendance. Here get your point but some of those people live in neighborhoods and can't really plug their dogs. Here's white house battle until two am. Yeah dad's a little excessive to a little excessive for sure. I get that but i've seen the eleven o'clock eleven o'clock should be the cutoff you can't you can't go until midnight. That was the big dog texting in. Can't midnight too late. But still i think that that is. It's a it's a tradition. We've had forever all right. I'll tell you what let's take a break here closing in on nine thirty six We come back on the other side. Colorado h. always losing a little bit of power. This is some that has made a whole lot of sense to me either. let's get to the bottom of the hour news and weather center here mornings with kale weekdays. Six to nine and northern colorado's voice thirteen ten. Kfi k forty one the time. Welcome back into the specialist studios visit noko now presented by those jeanine agencies. We've got a fun second hour coming up for you in just a bit. Because we've got a special announcement especially guests joining us at ten or five so make sure you tune in at ten five. We've got a really really cool announcement we're going to be making then and a special guest will be talking to at ten five ten thirty five. Chris would editor poster biz. West magazine joins us as always so talking about these neighborhoods right. We're talking a little bit about the the fireworks and how they all said off. And and and just we'll the the idea of living in the neighborhood in hoa's comes into question what colorado hoa's losing power to restrict speech on flags and signs before we get into this. I want to say that. This is a growing trend. That i i mean. We didn't used to have very often. We used to have it where it was over the top Top i am putting. Here's my candidate and putting that sign in my yard like does it seems like if you're neutral on the subject you're going to have to Put signs up at least or something. You've got to make a stay at and we saw that more and more or less your specifically with the black lives matter movement and the trump supporters That they were. They were bumper stickers everywhere. There were flags everywhere. There was there were signs in yards and and this is a growing thing and well now ways are going to not be able to have the authority to really say what you can't put that out there. Which i think is a silly thing that they had in the first place But they're starting. In september on september seventh colorado will soon be able to fly flags or display signs outside their homes without restrictions on the content even if they live in a neighborhood with a homeowners association. The only thing that that i get a little bit worried about and i i would be shocked. I'd be very surprised if they didn't have this in some fine print somewhere but you know any sexual innuendos that they want to put out there that that. If i'm if i live in the neighborhood i've got small kids. I don't want that on a big sign on one of my neighbors from porches. And that's where you have to draw the line at some point but the new law which had broad bipartisan support in the legislature comes after complaints and lawsuits by homeowners for what they believed was a restriction of their first amendment rights particularly following the heated election season when residents wanted to display trump flags or support for moments like black lives matter like ed just mentioned lawmakers acknowledge that removing content restrictions may open the floodgates for signs and flags that may be considered offensive but more important was the principal of allowing people to express their opinions And i i lean more to the side of saying. Yeah this is. This is something that needed to happen anyways right. This is something that you needed to be able to Put whatever you would like as law within reason right on your on your front porch on your science. You should be able to put that out there. And i i. I've never in this is this is coming from my background right. I've i've lived in one area. That had an hoa. But but i grew up. Most of my life Out in In the on a farm and this is something that never even crossed my mind. Mostly because we didn't have any neighbors close enough said to care we put up and we were big in putting this up anyways. But you should be able to decorate your yard. Accordingly you own the property or you renting the of renting the property. That's a different story. But if you own the property you own the house you should be able to decorate it any way. That you'd like pull aside another homeowners bill. Friday house bill. Twelve twenty nine Which increases record keeping and disclosure requirements for. Hoa's he also vetoed two bills one regarding off highway vehicles like atv's and what about transportation money Inside an executive orders so this was all done before the fourth of july weekend. But i don't see. I don't see in issue with this at all. In fact i think that this is. This is the right thing to do. Think that you should absolutely be able to display whatever you would like outside of your house. Let's see where else you know what. Let's let's take one more break when we come back on the other side This is this story is ramping up again. It's a tale as old as time about Indians and mascots. American indian mascots. Well the down to eleven months where colorado schools are gonna have to remove them. Let's dive into that story when we come back part of the conversation today i seven zero three five three thirteen ten nine seven zero three five three thirteen ten or text. The talk of i nights seven zero four seven eight one. Three zero one. We'll be right back party northern colorado's for thirteen ten. Kfi k the block party wednesdays from four ten pm well carlo schools now have less than a year or remove american indian mascots. And if they don't it's going to be expensive but the fact that they're going to have to is going to be expensive as well as well. this story here. The greeley tribune talking about this. This is something we knew was coming down the pipelines but they now have eleven months to remove them or face a monthly monthly fine of twenty five thousand dollars that means changing uniforms signs paintings and hallways and even jim floors win. Democratic governor jared bowls signed Steve bill One sixteen hurt with a litter of concern about the short span and cost the school district which can run hundreds of thousands of dollars and yeah. That is such a quick turnaround. So now you're going to get a lot of people especially the way that construction is backed up and supplies or backed up. You could have the possibility of having people be in the process of changing it. Not get it done in the eleven months and they're going to have to pay the twenty five thousand dollar fine on top of the On top of the actual cost of the renovations to get it done to get the change. That's not right that shouldn't be happening Backers of the law say not only. Is it the right thing to do. American indians in colorado say many of the mascots turn their identities into caricatures but the districts also have known. This was a long time coming. Schools with these mascots could save making a change if they had an agreement with a federally recognized tribe by june thirtieth or they can apply for state building excellent schools today grant to help with costs though the process is competitive and the grants likely wouldn't be issued in time and we've got i mean this is gonna affect Schools here in northern colorado right. We've seen loveland The loveland indians changed their mascot The eaten fighting reds. What will they turn into And do they need to do. They need to be that the eaten fighting reds is that is that a derogatory term. Loveline indians is that a derogatory term. Now i can have that conversation about the lamar savages right. I mean i could have that conversation. Not sane which way i i would agree with it but i'm willing to listen on that one these other ones i don't see it as a as a caricature at all in fact the in fighting reds and especially with how much they win right but this is just another step in removing the quote unquote offensive stuff and it's removing part of our history. Is it a good part of history. No it's not anybody who says that it is is wrong but is that what we should be doing. Should we be removing the bad parts of our history. I had i had a history teacher in high school that that said if we don't learn from history it's bound to repeat itself right and that's the truth if we don't learn from what didn't work if we don't learn from our failures are mistakes. Then they're bound to repeat them were bound repeated. I don't like this. I don't like the fact that they're taking it away. The national congress of american indians has been asking for mascot changes for more than thirty years said democratic state representative. Adrian been vitas of commerce city. One of the sponsors of the new law the car legislature has also tried to pass the bill in years past but finally getting it done this year car to started its own assessment amid national discussions about the use of derogatory native american mascots and twenty sixteen state commission recommended schools should eliminate all native american mascots because of the misrepresentation and stereotypes they perpetrate perpetrate. Unless a school came to an agreement with federally recognized tribe strasbourg and arapahoe. High schools currently have agreement so the strasbourg idiots will not be changing. So why is it because okay they so they reach an agreement with one tribe in there. Okay does the fact that dave reached an agreement with one tribe make it less offensive. The loved one day needs just because they didn't reach an agreement with a try. Then that that indian that mascot is offensive but strasbourg. Oh they're fine. It goes back to some common sense and it seems to be lacking with this one The districts initial estimate for changing both mascots. We're talking about montrose highschool. The indians The district's initial estimate for changing both mascots is a combined five hundred thousand dollars to seven hundred fifty thousand dollars Though that could change mantra school district spokesman matt jenkins that would include everything from paint on the gym walls. Two scoreboards to school apparel. Well it's all going to have to happen. It's all going to have to happen because you can't have the old apparel. You can have that still there. Jacobs said the school schools have a good relationship with local tribes and try to respectful in the mascots us. There isn't one painted on the high school gym floor. But they don't have a formal agreement. The district plans to do whatever it needs to conform to the law. Yeah because twenty. Five thousand a month is is egregious Before we get an hour number two to Say thanks desert petting her clearly real estate. They real estate market is still just insane right now.

I i would go out there any time. I had to be in that part of town. Yeah i would always go bring it back. Because were these real exotic grilled cheeses unhealthy on. Yeah they did shoop tomato soup with like. I dunno porridge. Well i don't know that was quite on the menu anyway. Five oh to five seven one. Eighty a lot of stuff to get to today. We're gonna talk a little bit about what may be a big day for kentucky. Football coming up the herald leader. Yesterday made a comment that we have to think about. What is the coolest section of lexington and what they determined to be the coolest sexual lexington. I want to potentially dispute okay because we need to have that conversation but first let's talk just a little bit about the uk basketball situation yesterday. Came out that kentucky has reached out to rocket watts of michigan state. Which by the way is a great name rocket wa. Yeah it is an awesome. Did you name your kid rocket. Yeah flash problem with kid rocket cheney battery fat he does have a big slow kid named if you end up with like if you end up with a big lumbering child and it's rocket the whole life is like i thought you rock. They have rock and it's now by my count. The fifth guard in like free pays kentucky. It's been mentioned but and in all every situation kentucky has reach out to the kid now. We don't know that they've offered any of these. But they've at least reached out all walker kessler. The transfer from north carolina committed yesterday to auburn. That seems like drew a weird fit to me. You feel if you've ever pearl ever had a dude like that and not at all. I was quite surprised. He chose auburn weird fit. I mean like just style play just likes to get up and down the court when he gets big guys usually a big lumbering. God that just gets you know a dude like him sort of traditional back. I just don't i never go somewhere much slower. Probably not even the. Sec was thinking like a wisconsin. Yeah i mean to me that would be where he would've even carolina made say he's had a ton of guys haven't anyway But it got me to wondering we're all adults here. We can have this. I try to feel like we have a plan in. Here's what i mean by that year's pass let's go back to the year. We've got jamal murray. And by the way jamal murray get hurt last night on is it might be like bad season ending a minute left in the game. He fell and it did not look. I hope he's okay. He grabs the they will evolve and he hopped off but they just curry standing next to you can tell stories so i hate to hear that but anyway joel murray that year the uk folks kind of all private privately be like there's nowhere like it's gonna be. Because i think they knew demari wisconsin get the sense that that exist now or does it feel like maybe i don't wanna say scrambling because i think they have a lotta options. But that they're just kind of not sure what to do next. It does give the impression they have no clue what they're makeup of their roster is going to be next year as of right now no clue with guys still undecided trying to get people like you said every day. It's another guard. They've been contacting the same goal types. I mean you're having you're getting the shooting types but some of these dudes been mentioned recently. They can't even shoot like rocket watts. Like twenty five percent from three point. Line the kid from unlv. Hamilton shoots twenty thirty one percent like it does feel like they're just kinda looking everywhere drew. Yeah i would say they don't know but not in a bad wedding just because it's so new and guys are being added every day. I'm sure they have heard plenty of guys. Were still on rosters. That are considering the pool and they're just trying to figure out the right town to maybe really go all in on a guy or take a guy or wait out even longer. Because i'm sure they've done their due diligence and they've had conversations and there's people still looking at the porno mean the this could go on for you got guys that might pull out of the draft. That could go on a couple more months. I mean this could be wild. I think it's role in general. Trust the judge okay. I'm sure you know. I also want to say that some of our fans you can't have it both ways. I had a dude yesterday. Right me when walker kessler committed to auburn. And how do we let dudes like this. Get away with the record. Walker kessler average four point. One points a game last year now. He made up good but i mean he was third string on that team and the two guys ahead of him. They're good but they're not david robinson right. So he's third streak then two hours later same. Do when the rocket watts thing came out and goes. Why do we want him. He only ever seven point. Eight points a game. I'm like that's double. What walker kessler average and by the way we already have guys like that was really the one position that we don't need through is a big gap but anyway but there is a part of me that sort of wonders it feels like to me that they are just as into the unknown as we are. And i don't think that's unusual. Normally they go in the off season. We're getting this kid and if we don't we're getting this kid and i think it is much more we'll see there maybe twenty kids and we're trying to figure i totally agree. It's like they're trying to get somebody but they're also looking for a backup. Backup plan to a backup plan to a backup plan. It seems like reaching out to all these guys. Just in case it that falls through my mom always says larry doesn't make the grilled cheese. She does so. I got that wrong. Moms make the best grilled cheese. They put butter on the bread. And isn't that part of what makes the main ingredient grilled butter moms moms. Know how to do it better. Put the cheese on just right and they flip it and the just know moms. Just do it better this to make grilled cheese. Yeah they're awesome to be like you're anti dad's bit back into the back door. Do you feel confident that no matter how scramble plays out that on september first or august twenty whenever school starts at uk we will have a roster that can be a contender yes. I both think that they're clueless. Everyone's clueless because this is brand new. No one really knows what's coming in how to approach it but also think that kentucky's the top name on those these guys matt and if you're leaving your current spot you're looking for a bigger program that help you get the most likely type ninety percent of the guys leaving are looking for that. I mean kentucky with major weaknesses is just a glaring opted for so many people. I think they'll eventually end up with Someone to fill the spots. They want just right now. They don't have a clue who it is. Yeah i mean look if if actually crushed the transfer market so far like if you were rank. The people who've transferred that are coming back to of the top five and gravy and my guess is we'll get at least one that'll be also we have three of the top five when it's all over when it's all said but it is sort of weird right to feel like it's not certain maybe right. Maybe it's not for anybody brand new to everyone one caveat. My they don't know could see a scenario where car just because his name comes up so much is just going to do the draft thing in their count on him to come back to college. But that's just my own speculation car. Then almost i say that i don't really care who else they get. I feel like if they get car. they're ready. i. I still think they're going to find another. I built their minutes. Or they'll get somebody that's close to men's. Would you agree with that. You agree with that. I'm worried about point guard. And i look out there and look at the options and i don't see a lot out there for what we need. Okay but car would be sure if they knew they were getting car. Then i'm good because there are a lot of to guard options that you can get. I was watching last chance of you. And i saw this kid go there six three two guards. There's a million of them and that's true but they're not a lot of penetrating point guards that we need so my sort of worries if they don't get car what's the option. So maybe that's kind of what they're doing hoping maybe thinking they get car now. They're looking for a backup. Four-car like with these other guys. I don't think it's backup for car. I think it's a backup for me. It's i would still be the number one choice to bring him. But i don't know maybe they know mrs lee to me all these dudes. It doesn't make sense to take bryce hamilton. Magma clung adam miller iraq. It watts if manses coming back Maybe would but i to me if you told me tomorrow. They'll have marcus car in minutes. I don't care who else they we're fine. In my opinion would you agree with that. Yeah and no. if it's diminished. I really feel that way about car. I want him really bad. They gotta have a point guard. They don't get point guard in this then. I'm not confident about next year. Gotta have a point guard. We cannot rolling there with just a freshman and think that's gonna work. We saw that last five. Oh two five seven one eighty we. We're out here in front of cass bar and grill. You can come out have lunch. Say hi pinch ryan's cheeks. We'll take a break kentucky. Sports radio talk to that jones.

Go visit dad's favor the thing about cooking it. Here's the problem with doing it. Ks bar we do. We have to have food that we can turn quick because we get these massive crowds of people and the problem is like if you if you have a food grilled cheese.

Perhaps i may start mentioning the day. It is every day. Yeah there's always those stupid day day. I actually look at that every morning for the website.

But i think no matter what we're going to have to players go in the first two rounds shock. Well not a shocked by by davis. But it's a shock that we're going to have to for sure and really up to what eight or nine your overall. I've noticed like towards the end. People don't like landon young go in or not. I mean it's a different just where we went years without having any just the fact that setting records for combine invites to have guys that'll be they don't necessarily do the green room like the nba but close to it. They'll have guys Really involved in just watching it on. Tv it's great for marketing. At josh allen. A couple years ago. It's kind of turn into. I don't wanna call it. Nfl factory but the uk is definitely present. Every year used to be so excited when we get one guy in the fifth round man we gotta got drafted the great year now to possibly in the first round at least in the first second round just speaks volumes with this program is right now. Biro bradley. mckee who. I trust his food. Yes well says drake's as good grilled cheese drake's exam not had one either. But i'm going to. I'm going to dad's farm shop today. That's that's where we'll let you down all right. Who's next steve steve. How're you steve. I'm doing fine good. What's not one of the best grilled cheese. You gotta find old diner with one of those flattop. Grills have been probably have those everywhere. I can't just you know. I part of what makes that good. Are the years of greece. built in. We talked about the monticello pool hall. Yeah part of what makes those burgers. Thirty years of greece cigarette ashes. The seasoning sweat and all that in there and that's part of what makes it good. So i'm with steve. That makes it great. But the reason why i called yesterday lovie w the main event proudly with phil roe perina mandolin and on the side ryan will be in the best shape of his life because the winner of the match gets the kiss. Amanda and ryan ryan appreciate the suggestion. Appre appreciate the call. But i can't. I can't schedule matches. Were ride may have other people kissing his wife. I don't think that will be. We do have an vw announcement in second hour. A little. Bit of a tease. You just did right. There was something. We're very excited about that. I think people will want to cool you. I like your somerset sports dan. We're that's a really nice shirt with a built into. That is a huge stain. What is that. I spilt my drink this morning on the way here. What drink is that. Arnold palmer ten. I can't. I'll have another one in my car so i wear palmer this morning. Wolves leftover from before. He said anything. I was gonna say it was a leftover. I swear i was gonna predict over aric bomber. I like to keep it the car. So the board he. That's my and. I'm driving over here. So i may hang on a second. You keep a drink in your car from the night before drink in the morning. It's definitely arnold palmer. Little caffeine t morning tea and lemonade covered or uncovered. That's covered get a little lid on it. So do you make it yourself or do you buy pre made. Oh bought it. Like at wendy's yesterday become with melted ice. So you're telling me you go to win these you order is that in. You got one for a couple of days ago. Yeah it's on the media large. I can't drink a large drink. Half of it. Save the halford price melt. Yeah and so you start your day every morning with a watered down car. Arnold poll the best way to get your morningstar eighty s car. Arnold palmer you start your pods with drinking you. Pour it on your shirt. Then you pick it up the lid pops off and so i just wanted to attack for those of you ever wonder why is ryan like he is on the show. Just know that every morning. He's starting his day with a windies. Watered-down down car arnold palmer. D 'less throw. We love in the sec. Network half grilled cheese and water down over today. We'll take a break from ninety three bragging today. Poll you you were out to kentucky. Sports radio presented by stockton mortgage. Here's matt jenkins sports radio. Clint black shania corbin. Rena is bringing. Clint black's corbin. Nice was that just announced today or yesterday you and you wanna go center hanged i. We had one. I'm in aren't you said the other day. I don't listen to clint black enough. They got so. What about that chain of drew go down to corbin and go see. Clint black sounds like a date to it. They get for christina at the corporate arena. Also saw that like some place in kentucky. I can't remember who it was is is getting sammy kershaw. Aaron tippin and What's the other guy's name who sings little red collin raye. It's a three bill. Where's that going to be. I don't know i that's written all over it. I'm not a huge collin. Raye look past him to get sammy. Kershaw in here tip. I know we're getting there early. I wanna see collin raye too. I wanna see all three of them. We're lacks big. Because he was just on the masked singer was he yeah. He was a masked singer at lisa. Hartman both they were doing. He was wearing the mask. I yeah i get far. Has her career fallen. If you're on the masked singer number people suggest old. San juan on nicholasville road. I don't know one thing about it but it sounds good. Old san juan. Where is that on nickelsville. Look it up. But apparently great grilled cheeses and great. Aw i recognize this place. It's a cuban place. where is that though. I think it's in the malibu shop. Valla never know what's going on in that malibu shopping center. I know where it's been there forever. It's behind where the rafferty's used to be right behind. Oh it's behind it. Yeah so we can't see it from the road. No you can't see it nicholasville. I don't know why it says nicholasville road address so it's behind the rafferty's going to try that too. Now there's two places old san juan dad's lovely that's favorite favorites income to five seven hundred. Eighty person matt. Maybe this hall of fame. Calipari should be able to adapt if he doesn't get the specific. Nba point guard. He want well. Maybe but also. I just think any team if you don't point guards you're you're not going to be good. We did not have a point guard last year. I will never know the answer. This question. But i will go to my believing if we had a point guard. That was good. We'd have been fine. Wouldn't have been great but we'd been tournament team. If we had aston hagans. I know i keep bringing him up because not because he's great but just because he's decent if he was on that team last year ryan. I think we're in the ncaa tournament. I don't think there's any doubt fashion hagans on that team. And i think we all saw. How important is for. Perry's offense to have a good strong point guard so it's hard for me to be excited about next year. I mean no one hickman might be great. But i say this with love. He's not looked at in recruiting circles. Liked to do. We've had that have been great. Yeah now neither was shea. Alexander unchain ended up good but he's ranked kind of about where ask you was right and so i need some more certainty drew. If i'm going to be really excited into combine your points. They had certain do with kate cunningham and he changed his mind final hour if he doesn't flipped oklahoma state. I don't even think we're frustrated with last season at all. I think we're excited about everything that happened. It's i i really think that created one huge ripple effect that is less than a long time totally agree but like jamaal baker or as. I like to call him tomorrow. Share picks fresno state to finish his career fresno state give me your favorite fresno state basketball thought or memory tomorrow. Baker drains during their at. Probably chris herren went. Yeah maybe it was. Didn't jerry tarr canaan. Finish his career. I think he did a good call. I think i think chris herren played for jerry. Tarr caney okay. Can you think of any other big fresno state player though zero i. I don't think i can think of besides chris herring. I don't think i can think of one. Can you shannon any fresno. Nothing comes to mind. Is there a paul. George with san diego state. I think why why. Why would paul george tights somebody. Well paul george would be the best if that's where he went could call of. Oh i don't know that's where he went but drew seemed like he was. I'm pretty sure of that all right. Who's next let's go to. Jr yesterday was grilled cheese day. Got the wrong. We still celebrate today. Who knows the difference. Jr go ahead guys. Hello jr. i wanted to tell you first of all. I've got the best grilled cheese. And it's in lexington. But i wanted to tell yeah used to be a disc jockey in the late seventies early early eighties and i was a play by play basketball broadcaster for the fourteen three to you guys have the best radio show in the country. Look how nice. That's very kind of you and especially coming from a pro like yourself. So where do i get. The grilled cheats campus pub while avenue pump over by the way is that is that what you've been girl. I've been there many times. I did not know that. Grill the owner. That's all in here. True hangs out here and some are people hang out there. So you're telling me. Grilled cheese is where to go what to get their jail. Yeah and what you do. Is you pick your cheese and you pick the brand. I happen to get the pepper. Jack on rye and for your bar. I also cook at home. A grilled cheese only takes less than five to six minutes. Go well maybe i'll look into. I appreciate the call. jr now. I know that she gets picked the cheese and the bread. I get pepper jack in rai see. That's kind of cool. You pick your cheese and your brand. I like that formula. I just saw the seinfeld episode yesterday. Actually where he wanted to create a restaurant where you cook your own pizza and saying not only pay the topic and stuff. You actually put it in the oven. Yeah seinfeld was like. I don't think that's a good business. You can't have people sticking their hands in the oven. But i don't know what made me think of that. It was maybe it would work if i might have worked. Who's next. andy andy. How are you andy. i'll learn good. Are you said the other day that If we had car mentz colin she. More and grady Starting bob that you thought we would be ashby as far as sec. Champion of material. Now when you think with that being said would we need to do before the savings star what we need to go out and get to take that next step to actually be a championship contender out there. I don't know that he exists. I mean i think let's talk. And i appreciate the call. And he goes taught best case scenario for this uk team to me. Best case scenario. I get car or i get the kid from craig. Zagrebelski zag harassment. Then i think you get one more score and mints and you start and you hope. It's just a special group that connects that team can win the sec overwhelming favorite. But they can win the sec. Are they a national championship contender. Probably not but you could see how ryan they might be a team like alabama. Was this year. We're if everything went right you could make the final four and who knows. I think you're right. They could make definitely content from the sec title. Don't think they're a national contender. But if but that doesn't mean they wouldn't have a shot at it right. You know what i mean. Ucla was what couple of plays away from being in the championship game. I think it all depends on the point guard. We gotta have solid strong point guard if we have a poor so if we have a point guard it'll honestly if you think about it car gravy manse collins and cheap way. You know what that is. That's a really good tubby t. Yeah that's like three. oh four tubby it. Is you know what i mean. Yeah no i mean it. It's not the kind of team. Cow coaches no. It's not it's a tubby team. It's like it's like hard nose college players in win with that kind of thing. I did it before he got here. So it's not like. I think he's forgotten how to do that. Drew but it'll be unlike anything he's done here and really right now today whatever. Today's date is the day after girl cheese day. I think i would take that and be ready to go Like to add hopefully a brooks's back in kind of makes a little bit of a jump as a good stretch for but for as far as backorder oscar. I like what we have there. The problem is i just don't think there is a star out there. No i don't think there. I don't think that guy exists unless you know. I saw the thing about that guy scooter. Did you see him. No there's a point guard. He's the number one or two point guard in twenty twenty two and his name is scuba. sc ot scooter. If he were to come and reclassify maybe maybe. But i need a break from reclassified freshman with all the new year off the thing about this though this this could be the number one point guard. And you're getting for two years because he's too young to go to the pros take him and forgive me still. It's a little too soon. It's raining out here. Shannon inherit a little bit. So what do we one hundred percent for. Eleven to bring that up. It's one hundred percent rain for. Maybe we should probably go go inside. We'd doing so. Let's take a break. We're going to run inside because we're getting wet and we will return in just a minute. This is pablo to facts everyone today. This is talk to matt. Jones and the crew. All the clark's pop and shop online at five to seven hundred ten eighty or one eight seven seven nine four hundred eighty now for more news on the blue kentucky sports radio on talk radio tanny insurance radio. We walked inside here. Little banner right This this is definitely warmer. Certainly not getting with five to five seven one eighty texturing seventy seven two seven four or five two five four at y sports radio. One person writes matt. I'm excited about next year's team. Either way just having dudes who can shoot. We'll make a big difference that's true. Yeah he can be the guy that we hope and think he can be. That's that's just another missing element that we didn't have last year ric hailin sims went to fresno state. I want name from the past. Boever submission for manny said. Skip to my lou went to fresno state skip to my lou there. I love skip to my loo. Skip to my lou is no idea it was the guy he played in the an one tour and then he went names in the roth and he played the nba to. I know that name. He's the only guy went from an one to the. Yeah that's right. You like shoes by the way. I didn't notice until right. Now these are the squid words. The spongebob and those are the spongebob shoes. Squidward is one of the character and spongebob the yellow ones and these are the green ones. These are squid other in the series. There's a red one. I didn't get patrick patrick. I didn't give him look at you. Know when all your breasts. Big spongebob guy. I have seen many episodes of spongebob over the years The way twins are deciding friday. Lot of people feel like they could go to kentucky. Would they be the biggest twin get Uk football history. We had the winner of what other twins. Blaylock's wins cousins. Twin twin ended up. One minute up on the bachelor try. I forgot about that. You got to behave for the other one. He's like you're saying my brothers more than they'll play both didn't apply that'd be bad. Look i would say they didn't have as good of a career here. I believe if. I'm correct that when when stoops got here there was stoops blaylock problems. I believe i could be wrong. But didn't one of them getting like a car accident or something. maybe. I don't know there might be right. There was one of our players like got an accident. Remember when i got here. That was ashley lowery safety car. Accident back rx but i i want to say i could be wrong. That there was some kind of blaylock. Stoops issue could be because they didn't play much at all not even on special teams there. Most that season mckie's kids movies kids. That's the original name of pearl. Gee i just hope the way twins commit so we can bring back our keep calling. The twins are coming banners well and these dudes like i've talked about this. They have a chance this weekend. I want kentucky football fans to know like we have a chance to have a massive week in. Yeah you have a chance to get three top. Three hundred guys including can't goodwin is top. Seventy five might be top fifty and then the way. Twins are like one hundred sixtieth in two hundred and fiftieth. I mean you get three in an entire class. It's a huge class. I'm not sure stoops's gotten three. Maybe he's gotten it once or twice since he's been here he might get three and forty eight hours and one hundred. I just never thought kentucky. Football could recruit kids at this level year after year. There's no way they get one good guy once in a while but the do it year after year after year. I am honestly completely surprised. Duke says he thinks this has a really good chance to be best classic. Wow and by the way figure if these three guys they'll be number eleven in the blazes won't be their best class ever can get be number eleven in the country man. That's incredible so you get the little jab on tennissee. then being as i mean goodman's lists. Everybody is on his list so something to watch for right now. Most people think the way twins will pick kentucky. now that can change so just tennessee or kentucky. I think there are other schools louisville and most people think it's kentucky tennessee and they're gonna go together. Yup do twins ever not go together. Can you of any twin didn't go to the same school shannon. Can you ever think of a twin. That didn't go to the same school now off the top of my head. I'm sure there's some out there required. That'd be the most annoying thing about being a twin is. You'd have to agree on everything you do everything together you dress alike at least it will. Certainly if i were to have twins i would not make them. I would not have interest like we already know that. They're the same person i mean. They have people dressed. Like you're almost trying. It's i find that kinda weird it's like you're creating to robots like weeds. Where the same clothes like. I i think you gotta give them. Different personalities always thought that you have put them in different classes in school. Don't have a both in the same first grade class separate. What do you mean you mean. Like different teachers different teach. Okay yeah what. What about like taking them to different schools. That's even a maybe a better options. They can develop their own friends. I don't think. I don't think they should dress alike and i definitely think like by age five like you can't have like seventeen year olds dress in the same every day. There's an age where you can't do it. A lot of people that post these sculptures are mad at you. The facebook crown with wins at least very narrow group. The only one thinks it's weird to make them dress the same to say that you wouldn't. He wouldn't even do that with your dog. You know what. I'm dressing your dog. You wouldn't even make your dogs where the same thing you know. We have our ratliff twins maybe also the same but no but they you know they still live together. They're very but i'm okay. That's their choice. I'm talking about parents in flag forcing the twins to be the same. Yeah that's what i'm saying. Like if you choose later in life to be like those movies where you play pranks on each other and stuff. that's fine yeah. But i'm saying enforcing the same dome in children to me is weird. I i've been racking my brain. I can't think of twins that went to difference. I don't think there are twins that have gone to different schools which is weird. It is parents would get in the way of that. Big big hassle true. They'd have to go to you know separates but brothers go to different schools all the time. So why would twins all end up at the same place. Good question we get to the bottom of this we do. There's next todd. Todd how are you todd. Hey good matt thinking about the grilled cheese. There's a place in bridgestone arena that i had did during the fcc turn over the years that sales grilled cheese. Wow would you aware that i was not. I never would have imagined. The best grilled cheese would be in. The bridgestone arena in nashville rhyme. But at least who. Good like bacon bacon and tomato grilled cheese and just different kinds. You know when. I like that i had tried it a couple of times and they was real good considering Kind of a fast food type place. Listen if you get the name of it next. Sec there right. After i go to dads and old san juan and also have many quarterbacks do we have so far right now. And i appreciate the call we have. I think we have four big ones. We've got we've got gatewood. We got boao and we got will live. And we've got nick scelzo and then we got kaya sharon from san francisco. We have five actually anybody else. It's the big love. Most schools have four or five. That's kind of the number so we might be one high but most schools. I think have four or five on scholarship. Bright thinking about this. Where did terry wilson pick school new mexico new mexico. Were you not hear that day. I don't guess. I was here that we talked about where you were. I wish him the best of luck i mean. He gave us a couple of great years. I didn't work out the best last year. But i hope he has one good year. I really do feel like now is the moment. You need talk about quarterbacks. And i'm reminded me about terry. Like where did he go. Should we hate kayla called. Terry wilson telling that ryan has ryan passes along good word. Thank you just want to make. Sure i don't want him here. Thank you my first birthday. Shout outs teary show doubts. Big day orenthal. Eighty and my wife are having a big birthday today. Oh keane bird you today killer.

Near the mcmahon of the business so the big announcement that when you get in the ring will you be wearing the necklace to thursday. I appreciate the call. I mean i i did not. I'm not a wrestler. I mean i may be in the ring talking. But i'm not. I'm not a wrestler. That's not what i'm here for. The his question was whether or not calipari got here. Two years earlier or patino comes back and wins a tidal. Yeah so calipari. Races the billy. Gillespie two years. I would have preferred that. Because that means we would derrick rose and think about that and if we had derrick rose to add to all that i it so yeah i i mean look the comes back and get gonna win a tight. I can't have rick pitino. Here i mean. Can you be match for the show. would it hates. that's fine. We would still have good content. What me fighting. With rick pitino contest. Great listen there is no happiness money to be made fighting with the stack right. Yeah that would not be. We'll take a break. We're here chaos bar and grill chinese menu.

Garth brooks once garth These big shows and an artist out and ask them about that asked him. Hey what was the like opening for garth. He said i heard your card guy. Give me your best trig.

And did this car trick that. I feel like i've seen people do before. But he was really good at and When he left the room i was just you know smiling ear to ear thinking.

The show is over today. Don't download it now. Heck it's not even downloadable. This show is over. That's a lie. Yeah check it out. Everybody's having a good friday appreciate you hanging out with us. It is mike d wedding weekend so at this point tomorrow. We're going to be waking up. It's still not at mike's wedding but it'll be happening tomorrow night hours right. Let's open the mail bag. A mail data. They right Bobby bonds. I've been with my boyfriend for three years now. Marriage has been talked about but neither one of us are in a hurry. My question i need advice on is when how do i tell him what kind of ring i want of wanted a particular cut diamond. That is not the most common emerald cut not jim since i was just a young girl and then he gives me. It'd be amazing because it's come from him. But since i have an idea of what i want should i tell them to help them out. I also can't guarantee there won't be a small tinge of disappointment. If it's not that style. What should i do. And how should i go about it. Without making him feel rushed or pressured. The show is great. i listen to the podcast everyday. Thank you signed c. c. Go a few experts here on this. I just went through this myself as well. Maybe i'll let you go first on this one. How would you tell him without telling him. Okay so i don't know if you have a sister or best friend or someone that he also knows that can kind of have this conversation for you and if he's even thinking about it hopefully he's reaching out to those people anyways to see if they know anything but make sure that they know. Make sure all your people know what you want. Because somehow it's gonna come up when he's ready to that point or make sure that they let him know especially if this is something you've wanted since you were a kid in an emerald cut is very unique and specific might not even be on his radar. Maybe i was not going to go to anybody real bef- i mean i wasn't. You weren't no in it. 'cause i thought i wanted to be a total surprise okay. So that's why. I wasn't going to go to anyone. We sheep. you have to organically bring up rings without it being about proposals. For example you find an instagram. Or someone got propo- engaged in you're just looking at it or a show or something and you're like all that's released we don't kind of the much and then you look at it. Go does not for me here. The kind of see. If i i want an emerald goes to the best looking ones you gotta start planting those seeds to not pressure him to do it but also make sure he knows it because someone wants to fully surprised. They don't trust that your sister your in you know your your cousin. Jimmy isn't gonna like you got it. I would say plant the seeds that way because everybody's always getting married in propose to on shows or instagram. It'd be like could you see. Sean does ring. I don't show on this ring. Oh it was a gym cut makes me want to vomit. I'm more i like. Emerald cuts like for me. I've always dreamed of having an emerald. That i would say that's how you would do it raimondo. Any advice you just got the whole thing yet definitely going together.

Diana is a good song for him number one forum but not something that i turn on and like i need to listen to some j. going. I don't go to this. I agree okay number. This is already kind of garbage there. He is beaten did array. Make this list at. This is like a radio. I guess. I just like the meaningful heartfelt stuff never to barefoot blue jean night joel. Put it the backside of this just because of the popularity and a number one days of gold okay. This person's never listened to jake. Bowen just went randomly picked five songs. You have a loan with you on that list alone with the help they took twenty one songs and ranked them and alone with you came in at number seventeen. Whoever made this less fire them. I don't know who they should not be able to write any more articles by jake owen. Now off the jay. Go and beat okay. Where did they put any anywhere with you. Nineteen that's great for you number thirteen. Okay yeah they do opposite day. They write us on opposite day okay. Well researchers in singapore think that the human body might have the ability to live to a hundred and fifty years old. Scientists have developed this iphone app that accurately estimates biological aging and a discovered that life expectancy actually has the capacity to be almost double the current norm. So kind of crazy. What's gonna stink. Is they're going to figure this out after we die. Oh yeah like. I'm going to die in the next thing i'm going. Oh we got it. Eureka we figured it out. That's what's going to happen. Have you thought any more about freezing yourself. No i think about dying every day but it don't but to me it's you have to free yourself before you die the for your brain dies. That's what i in so you have to make that decision while you're alive going freeze myself where i am now and hopefully i wake up but not after you die and get frozen because your brain activity dead but if you're on life support and they say like it's not looking good and they're basically there are ways your body could be declaring dying pop yourself in the freezer. I'm uncomfortable conversation. I don't know. I don't i don't i don't have you already thought about dying today. We oh yes so before this conversation. Yeah i like. Look back at a year ago. And i just last night. I took out dark. i was like man. This is part of the fifty thousand taken out and every single time has been like just a normal day but forty nine days ago. I don't have three hundred more. These i'll be i'll look back and go like man. It's just like days go by with nothing and eventually they're going to not going by and i'm like why i should be so having more fun i should be expensive more live. None of this crap matters. Like the older i get the more i feel that way and it's taken like so many times but every time i do it i think oh i got plenty of time left but i have more or less and less time to do it but yes. That's good then. I think that's healthy. Good every maybe feel better about deep. What else will anybody in. This room been met googling themselves regularly. I phones don't go get myself. i don't need to get an update anyway. What if you do a cool article on you like let me see. that's out. No this is what happened to me. Recently amy asked if i wanted her to bring it up on the air. Today i didn't. But i did all these interviews for breaking bones. It was one after the other. I probably did three hundred interviews and three days exhausted and editor. Who has talking to points. And so i do this thing. And i've really not been talking about running for office lately because like i'm okay right now i don't i if i get the call in that means i feel like it's all gone to s and i feel like i have to do it. It's gonna wanna do. But something. I will do if i feel like i'm needed. I haven't been feeling that needed lately and this article. Acadia run for office. And i was like well. I've been thinking about how much i said that. I said i do feel like someone like me. Needs to run because like i come from struggle. Most politicians are the kids of politicians who haven't had easy growing up or the grew up rich. And that's why they're able to run and so we don't need kids of rich people running. We don't need kids of other politicians running. Who had it easy. You're on it because they don't represent people that have gone to the struggle said the reason. I think i will be good in a way that i've gone through it like i know what it's like to speak for people who have had to struggle and so the so. The fox news picks up the article and runs it in the headline. They put out as bobbins knows exactly who he is. And i was like well. That's a weird headline so then people start retweeting. Hey good to know. This guy knows exactly. So then. I started getting blasted for the headline. And then i don looking at the comment and it was just brutal and i didn't even know us for fox news. They just asked me the question. I answered honestly but That was a situation where i did not. Why don't we talk about this. Because he's gonna talk about You know googling your google because world hate was coming from and i found that article. Okay well googling. Your name isn't a bad idea because you should know what other people can find out about you especially if you're looking for a job that's kind of where it is. Other people are just way into themselves and one and eleven americans google themselves every day. Wow that's a lot of people. Yeah mostly i google myself when the hate is coming from a place. I can't find that's what it is you asked me. Hey have this story. I know and i was like no. Don't talk about it all right. That's why nobody good runs for political office because anytime you do people just attack and you're like why would anyone worth a damn want to go run for office and pet themselves and put themselves through that so if i and i said in the article if i never have to run for office great i win because we feel like we're okay. Yeah all right enough all right. I'm amy that's my pile. That was amy's pile of stores.

And he's been in this transitional housing that helps out veterans and he's working this job again waken but three. Am to take the bus but then someone was like golly really wants to transition out of this house get his own place if he could work more. That would be helpful. Anonymous donor gave him a car now. He saves a bunch of time having to commute which can help him take on extra shifts during that time and make more money so he's going to be able to get his own place soon to and again. The donor is anonymous. Hate that don't a whole car. I just don't i nothing i don't get it. I don't get it story. is a veteran. Gets great story. And for this guy. Time is money and now he doesn't have to commute as much as he can. Maybe the person doesn't want the attention they don't want to be in the good. Why do you do good stuff. This guy so that this guy could get i would get more work and then by house but you gotta understand if this guy put his name out there. He'll be like oh my gosh you did such a good deed. We'll give you stuff and then you get like what is it called the question again. Why do people do good stuff know what asked me. Why do you do good stuff. I was thinking about that as you asked. Why do i think. I think we all have reasons. We do things for other people. I think because so much was done for me as a kid because of people giving me food or making sure i got to church or making your head football cleats. We couldn't afford. I think. I felt like i owe it more than i think. That's generally why do it. Why i think i owe it because people helped me. Why do you do good stuff. I feel like i. I have been blessed in my life and i i want to be able to pass that on to other people and i feel like there is a certain part that you just feel. It feels good to take care of other people to help your neighbor. Whatever that looks like if it's like your literal neighbor for someone in another country like there's just something about if you've have the means showing up other people but you don't have to help someone monetarily by any means so lunchbox to you. Why do you do good stuff so appeal. Oh man. I did something good. And they'll they'll they'll recognize me for like you want the accolades that come with doing something. Good different reasons as long as something gets done. Good who cares right you know. I want that pat on the back. This is what you know. We know we get it. Get it we get it okay.

Like cheating california reading twitter. Now get cheating too right tweeting on a test as tough one okay. It has nothing to do with birds. But if you don't get this right this is one of those ones rides. Need you to roll with it. Hit morning corny. A cop pulled me over his head papers. Okay and i said scissors and draw own morning. Gorny but he'd say paper rock paper not papers papers. Your papers like you're funny. We struggled today. All right on the phone is jerry and kansas city jerry. What's happening Heard your segment with lunchbox about the know about everybody. But he's reading the ten. Nobody's fan i. I said that nobody no. I don't think on the scale of one to ten how we give people a number. I'd put myself at a honestly like a six point seven. I think i'm right there. I'm not quite good looking. I'm right in that slightly above average looking category. And i think that's just because it myself in good shape. They've got a pretty generic. Everything lunchbox says he is a ten. I didn't think perfect was able to be accomplished. But you do feel that way. I mean you say perfect can't be accomplished if you watch diving and swimming. They get tens. All the time gymnastics so there are not all the time very rarely but okay so there it is able to be done and if you put me in a machine and they were like all perfect. This is what perfection would look like if they tried to make you think about that. Jerry know what would you give give him a number one through ten if you have you ever seen it before and and i read him about a five. That's jerry because i'm not. I'm not looking for you to me attend. I'm looking for the ladies right me attend. That's what matters right they're married. You shouldn't have to worry about anybody else. Well i mean yes. I'm mary the women's still think i'm a to know you're married. You're out the market. Yes but me. I mean there's a lot of people married but you still read them. That's what happens bobby. How do you guys stay in. That studio was his ego. That's brutal we kind of laugh with it a lot of times occasionally at it but i just i don't know we've been here for value. Stood at seventeen years jerry people. It's an honor to be around me. People like being around me. Because it's like dang. I get to be around ten. I get to be around a star so you would. You'd be awestruck if you're in the studio also know i'd rather be Near amy bobby i. That's your cup of tea. That's fine if you want to be around people that are kind of boring and You know not so much fun. That's cool over there. Jerry appreciate that call. I think you have. You're saying what a lot of people at times feel. I don't think lunchboxes attend because fine looking guy definitely think he's ten but he thinks he is. He still claims that when he goes to the mall or go to the grocery store women try to hit them absolutely because they just can't resist them so i can't resist. They see me. They're like dang. I gotta get to talk that jerry. Thank you for calling. Hope you have a great day. I don't think you do. What are you going to say what say for hanging up. I don't see it. I don't fit all right buddy friday morning conversation with a big fan of these guys. You guys good good. Because i'm good. You have so many number one songs and we're gonna get to some music in a second but brad. When's the last time you guys actually played for people room. It has been quite a while since we play for some people in a room. Like this. and it's it's it's. It's always been a little bit different to do it. But it's actually. It's really cool to be sitting here doing it because it's fresh and it's been so long since we've done that. It's kind of looking forward to it. But i was. I was obviously nervous this morning. When i got up to come in why would you get you. And i know each other at this point too so it's not like we're meeting for the first time but why would you be. Is it because you haven't saying in a while is because we haven't seen any year in the biggest radio show in the no pressure. Listen i'm a big fan. So you guys all coming together. This means the world. So thank you waking up early and singing because i know a famous rock band. You don't wake up early in the morning you know. It's early in the morning. So i appreciate that. So where do we start you. Guys the records been out now. What twenty years. We you and i did see that you guys were going to play. You know the the better life all the way through from track one to track. How many are on record. I think i believe so but track one is kryptonite and do you start off with the big song. Are they going to. Dan is going to be like all right. We're ready to get warmed at well. That's the big one. It's going to be you know it's a little bit different but we've done it every year. We have a better life foundation and every year we Play a show for that and we actually tried this out of doing the record and we done away from the wrong and so he just started that record which it has here without you another one of her own and it's like at this but that's only like the fourth of fifth on the set but it was just so cool and it was kind of inspired by a several years ago we went out on tour with aerosmith and they and it wasn't like a like a anniversary for the record anything but they came out and they played their hits and all but they played the entire record of toys in the attic. It was so awesome and it was just we done at the life that year and it was just so fun to do that. It'll be fun to do this year. i think. Let me hear a club brand new here without you. How big was a selling for you guys here without you because i heard i heard it and played it on the radio. I felt like every five minutes. It was monster that was a big song and it was a really important song For us too because you know after the success of the better life record which was i mean by the grace of god it had it had four hits on it which was really a blessing to because you know if only had kryptonite.

We're being played everywhere. And i can actually feel it as as you're living your normal life when i think that we've seen have seen how for was our first stripped year up and our first show i real show in europe was a little club in finland and not even been to fill in that many times but it was first show there and matinee. We're walking up to the door. This club and four or five hundred of in you. It was at three o'clock in the daytime. Snowy and kind of snowy drizzling rain or something anyway is pretty inhospitable whether there was three or four little girls stand in front of the global autograph and we just walked down there in the middle of the day to kind of check the place out and just like we were in finland and and they didn't even hardly speak english in their waiting on us in finland in the show. You know there's just three or four three or four hundred but it was just showed you just how far they like you. Music has reached all over here to that. You never even thought she'd come. Did they ever try to. Like flack guys up. Put you in fancy jackets guys we need more of a like a like a flash sparkling for second for a second they did and they just realized if edges is not that shirt in that voice. Just don't look right together. Yeah they they just like media class to teach us how to even canidu- interview. And i don't think i hated into the class anymore than i did. Any other glass but it helped. I mean they tried to make us are to help us. Not quite so. I mean like this when i got into doing like radio television. They were like. Hey from arkansas. Your accents to thick. And so i went to a speech pathologist and tried to learn and at this point i've kind of re-embrace what i stopped doing for a while but it the same thing they were like you working a lot of places. If you sound like a hillbilly i know i know man it really was like that and I don't know what would they tell you in these classes. Like they would go all right. Brad mr doors down cohen. In say for me it was jeez because instead of going and fishing i'll be like we're going fishing and they will go first of all you have to add. Geez all your words. Because you're you're eliminating somehow and is for me. Because i is how i've been now trying to say it but as is it was like a hitting hitting Got hit in the eye and they were like well. If you say people are gonna like you because you're going to sound like market saw. And so i imagine they probably do that. Same stuff to you they did and you know but you know it was so cool about it was as you get out and and you meet people like the real world out on tour is everybody just. A southern accent is like disarming to people or something it's like they don't they don't take you look at you like stupid or anything. It's like they look at. You can like oh you got to be into it so it is a little bit disarming to people kind of embraced it also and i'm like well i mean people get three doors down there in studio now.

We celebrated the record us three when we we talked for a while and talked about the history. Three doors down and then all the sudden a copy of the better life on vinyl showed up at my house. You sneak into my house and leave it there. Because i have no idea how it got in my house blaming it on. Jp okay somehow record. It had the whole long note on it and i was like. I didn't let anyone in the door somehow in the house but i got imagine it's crazy you're still in the grocery store and you hear one of your songs like that's gotta be a weird thing right. It really is shopping for fish sticks and all the sudden you here. I'm here with that you It was like two weeks ago. Really and i can hear i can hear just like a little note of it. I'll know it's at now. Stop rolls the ball. What kind of singing training did you have as a kid when you started the band. i didn't i grew i was the youngest of seven kids and i grew up in assembly of god church and they sing a lot and i never sang in front of the church grew up it was never out of place in my house to be loud. You know because. I mean my family is a pretty loud bunch and none of them would argue that And so it was. Never i was never bashful or anything so i just can't grow up saying in in love eighties hair metal and all age bands. And then i love like nineties country and me and my friends we would route around the neighborhood little mazda. Sundown or took that. My daddy gave me when i was thirteen. I just couldn't leave the navy. We drive that truck around and we would just seeing seeing seeing and i guess that's where i learned how to sing what didn't want to tell you. Hey brad you pretty good like you should try to sing How did you start to get the information to know. The i should try to do this. We'll we didn't have a singer in advance just three of us just jamming and i mean. We didn't even have a was. Nobody really even thought about to sing. I try and i didn't. I mean i was not confident at all and in our tyler bass player. His girlfriend and one of her friends would be sitting here sometimes. Listen to this. Maybe you sound good and i think them telling me that gave him more encouragement to stop looking at the wall while i was singing and kind of turn around and be like all my friends. I've never had any friends that like picked on me about it all my friends and even like a little southern small hometown they were all really encouraging bet and it helped me more than anything. Those friends told me i was a loser. Loser three doors down there here. Tell me about the name what. How did three doors down the name. Come about it. Was it meaning significant. It was just. We were kind of searching for her name and we had a gig that nine or either the night. After this'll trip we took down to go shores and being from south mississippi. Just the little town you go through going down. There is just full. Little fruit stands and some in the same buildings and one of the Fruit stands at moved a couple of parcels down in the same building. They had put up some tackle letters. It said a business news doors down in some of them even kinda fallen often the down there was three of us and we just got a mail it together in and used it the next night the party and just will it's cemented now he can't change it. Did anyone ever have conspiracy theories about what crazy theories like three doors. Down's actually the sign of the beast heard some doozy's really would imagine because it's so like i never knew what it meant and you're like wow i bet it means something like deep or something like they're up to something. I'm sure you've heard people all kinds of theories about the name Absolutely and i mean. I can't really name them. I went off by people have asked me. He's like well. It has to be like dick means. I search search for somebody down. You murdered them. I heard three doors down here right now. They have their guitars. They were so gracious to come into play some songs. Okay so i've got to requests. Will you do when i'm gone. This is my first request here. tell me what. Tell me about this song but like when you when you think about back in the day when you know is written and you started recording it like what comes to mind. When i'm going is actually the only song we've ever written on tour we've never we've always before incense always had the big dream get out on tour and maybe we really hustled. We're gonna play shows nighttime. We're getting on the bus and right during the day and it absolutely never happened and we we wrote when i'm going on own the stage one day at soundcheck and and they'd had been playing the music around for a little bit and i guess we don't always write lyrics and melody Music written is completely different. Ideas that wound up together and and that's kind of how those that idea was and we were on stage. It sounded one day and put it together and I remember somebody standing there thinking saying that man that's a good song and And it also once we got it it gave us some confidence it was it was really cool to have that song in play it a little bit only better life tour even though it was way from the son record because we knew we had one in our pocket that was a good song going into that record process and i think it took a lot of anxiety out of that recording process which allowed us to kind of open up and write the songs that we did for that second record. Here we go. Here is three doors down with. When i'm gone world inside of me that he may never see their secrets in this laugh that can't ha in somewhere in list darkness is far. Maybe just behind. Maybe this blind went. I'm here to win. Alami win gold everything. I am in everything in me to be the one new loan down even vaca gamma everything if only oil win. I'm here you win. One always be there so let me went home. The whole lawn three doors go whenever we talk about these songs. I mean you wrote a lot of these songs to almost all of them. I mean here. You are quiet guy. Planning guitar no one. I'm making mailbox. Money's writing these songs of brad. I mean it's gotta feel pretty good for these things last so long it really does. I was talking to my wife the other day about. I was like with kobe. And everything's sitting home for two years. We're living off what we did. Twenty years ago it was just really a blessing really. Is the checks still actually come in the mail or now they just want riding the no not an email. Are you still making money or are they like stream so you still you still getting a little bit here and there. I mean it's basically especially all like sounds like here without you and stuff and i mean and that's on a couple of years ago and now like that's that's all came out in two thousand and three whatever two thousand four or five or something under three thousand three but like in two thousand nine or whatever universal all the music of youtube and put it all back so kryptonite and here without you. Essentially they got put back on the same day and from that date like eleven years ago for seventeen year olds on that song. Got six hundred forty million views on youtube and it still gets like a million views a week. It did do people keep putting it in movies and stuff too. And when i say the grocery store like that's where you want to be kind of everywhere at that point i got assume like it's weird because you started off as a rock band and now like flip on the holiday see station and it's like another light one from three doors down and you're like day. How selfish transitions. But that's that's how you're getting paid still absolutely like a rom com. We'll put three doors down in here without you babe and you're like all right. Well never expected that love scene. But that's gotta be cool to write. It really is me it really. Is you know in it. Whereas last year we weren't able to go out and play shows people were at home streaming some music you know and and in that really you know as the transition of the music industry is happening where there's really not record sales anymore. Artists are artists. Get betas off streaming music in different ways and and i don't i don't know if people realize what a blessing they were to artists last year being home streaming music. I wanna ask before we play one more song here because let me say this again. Twenty year anniversary of the better life planned the whole thing. I'm not wrong here. You're planning from top to bottom bottom. And i want to be like that which i believe you wrote together just you to. You're in a room. You write this song. This is one of the middle tracks here when you write. Be like that because i am i wrong. Was it on the american pie soundtrack. To to yeah. I'd i remember that thing coming in. The song is also over there. And i'm like this crazy and it was in the movie and so that song became again such a hit the ever go. Can you believe us to just sit there and wrote that song man. I think that i it was that quick quick. I think that all the time. I have felt before about like it's like i know people try like so i mean we're not overly talented dude in i mean. Look me when i say. God bless us was whistle songs. You really like has. Because i was wondering why. Why didn't somebody else writes songs. you know. because they weren't great they connected with people. And i i guess it just do it in the simplicity of it on but you know opposite onstage thing. Be like a mini at night thinking that. I'm singing. what this. I'm living the song is about and like i'm actually live on that. I that that wrote about you know here is be like that from three doors down -spense nine in california Chance stars on the big screen. And then you can there be me his zana's lafayette with all these good intentions. He's left a lot of things he'd rather nine mansion ride now in just before he says good with a little smile the knee.

Here's a clip of him talking about her. She's my saving grace. She really was the person in my life. That helped me acknowledging realize this before it's too late. It's tough to break up with her when she does. That's the situation. You kinda were a couple but good. For her fact she was a nurse. And it's like hey sometimes but said it's about me. You just got to get get kicked the button. The doctor like i need to go to the dentist right now. And caitlyn's like kicking me in the but like go to the dentist. I don't like going to the dentist hurts. I'll be honest with you. i don't like it. Don't make me feel good in my mouth. And so i have about tooth that i grind my teeth so bad when i sleep that i know this is just been grinded. Two words starting to buy have tiny splits in it. That's why you need to wear mouthguard. Do i don't need a lecture here. Okay talk to dennis about. Hey thank you for telling me. You're right all right that that's a good story though of her looking out for him. And that's what it's all about. That was telling me something good. It's been one year since. George floyd murder business. Roundtable stands with millions of americans calling policing reforms. We urge policymakers to continue working together to pass. Bipartisan policing legislation. The time to act as now paid for by business roundtable brandon. Who is listening in ohio. Right now brandon. what's happening. Hey good morning studio. How are you feeling pretty. Good how you feeling. I'm feeling good. I'm feeling that's pretty close but we. We applaud that effort. What i would normally do is go. Hey amy how do you feel. Feel good office. oh good. oh that's pretty good brandon. All right what do you want to say. Hey man. I just wanted to tell you bobby that you know i'm proud of you and you're an inspiration to people and that you shouldn't worry about so much the negativity that people may give to you on the internet or wherever you know I've always outcomes. Spur sorta the same situation. I grew i grew up breath and it seems like every time I got punched in the mouth. I was able to get right back up. So i think it's just a i think he's just an inspiration and i think i think he's so much for what you do. It's very kind of you brandon. Where do you live in. Ohio in canton. Pro football hall of fame. That's right that yeah. I know where he is. I mean convincing. Have a little dinner. What do you think you'll have for dinner tonight brain. I'm not sure. I'm hoping steak and how you gonna is. Somebody gonna cook that for you. You go home and cook that. Hey my wife takes good care me said things usually work pretty good for me all right. Well i appreciate that call brandon. One is very kind of you to your kinda guy. I appreciate the have a great weekend. But hey you to random. Hey more kids in this makes sense. And we'd mentioned this briefly before more. Kids are being named karen than ever before. You gotta think if you name your kid your baby karen at this point. It's just because their grandmother. A great grandmother was named karen. You're passing it down. I don't see many people choosing karen like okay. We got think of the name. That really fits well karen right now. I don't. that's not a name. People are choosing because of the negative connotation with the word right. It would also stink to be named karen as thirty year old right now. Yeah it would also stink to be named alexis as a fifteen year old. 'cause sometimes you just can't help when your name something and then something comes in behind you and takes over. I know a couple people that have kids named alexis and they were named before alexa. Even alexis though is going close. Set off everything in the house yeah karen from karen fairchild a little dot on podcast talking about. I don't even think of her. No she said that there was a an instance with our son where she was almost. He was like embarrassed. Has mom's name was karen. She was talking about that stinks. But i don. I guess when i say her name i don't think of that is the same care. Because he's not a care. I know when she said it. I was like wow. I've been i've been sitting here with you for thirty minutes and never crossed my mind. You have to deal with that. But she's someone that has had to deal with the karen. Backlash was in saint louis yesterday or the day left. The radio show flew up. And i have for the last three years worked with purina dog chow on their service. Dogs loose campaign. And what to do. Is i go up and i work with vets and we're shooting a documentary right now in a. I'm album produced a little bit too. It's all about showing how these service dogs are. Basically medicine provides who come back with. Ptsd in house in. You know they'll pass different laws to have different medicine covered. But they don't pass for service dogs and all these vets needs so the problem is are twenty thousand dollars each right to because he's dogs that go to training they have to go. There's a lot it's right. It's a substantial amount of money and so if it's not for people like either dog shower us on the show or people donating the our vets. Don't get this. Dogged helps them with their life. And so that's what. I was doing yesterday and met some listeners. Walking down the road we had some time to kill before we went to the airport What are you doing here. Yeah that'd be like Point for second and be confused like Are mostly it's caitlyn now. That wraps back around to me. Because they're like. Oh you that that you are him because she's with you that confirmation. Yes were on the fly yesterday. Flying up there. And i'm sitting on the inside on the window seat and caitlyn's in the middle seat and they were like twenty people in the entire flight. The southwest flight of saint louis and the flight attendant comes and sits down next to kaitlin. While i'm asleep instinct goes. Hey how's it going and she's haplotypes like if you think something's wrong it i was just recognized you guys and you wanted to come and say hi and kayla still new to this world and she's like hi what's like what. What do i do. Just do what you normally do. It'd be nice. But i heard it happening so i just still do that. Classic net right then. He missed the whole thing. We were In saint louis and starts harder to share the story about the service dogs. It's just my thirty year. I'm telling you you know one of the things to people. And i'm not even focused on right now but if i was in any sort of office i would make this a priority to make sure that our vets the resources they need because they don't get them right now they go over and they serve us and they do what they do so we can do what we do and a lot of times they come back and they get diddly squat or at least very little and so i was able to work with a guy named andy who has thirty one who had who had worked in haiti after the earthquake went over with the military another guy who was in the middle east and as a marine. And just it's just great and we'd like to do as much as we can on this show for for military too so we're going to do next week. Is we all we. We have a hero every single year. That's been through something traumatic and we basically build them a house and so. Do you have the information about him. Yeah i army sergeant Majestic he was serving over in the middle east when he hit an id and then gunfire took out. I mean he lost Arm fingers part of his intestines. His nose his ears. Severe burns all kinds of things and He served for twenty years well and then that happened so we're trying to build a home for him and his wife through building homes for heroes. But we're able to do it through our patriotic pimp. Enjoy language every year. We do this for a veteran and we put out something new. That's red white and blue that you can wear proudly come fourth of july and that's why we do it and this time of year and we don't keep a single red penny nothing from pimping -joy so next wednesday to every time yet.

Eight thirty seven thirty central. We will put this lineup bobby bones. It is limited but all the money that we make from this goes to building our hero. A home one. That's specially built for him because he's obviously his whole life changed after this incident. I think he's had eighty surgeries to date to like help. Just get him. Put back together as best as possible. And he's very deserving amazing veteran. That did a lot for our country.

You're wearing literally helped build a veteran a house. It's it's great stuff to show a long time. You know but boom next wednesday at eight thirty seven thirty central. We will put this lineup. Yeah and then just for you said for people that have been here longtime they may know but if you happen to be a new listener joining us pimp enjoys just about spreading joy to others mainly and then also choosing joy for yourself. It started with my mom's cancer battle but we have so many listeners that have gone through adversity or cancer and they've borne their pimp enjoyed a treatments and it just gives them a little extra strength because they know that they're not alone.

Either and i laugh because it's dumb but at one time i would have been this dumb and it does sound like been fun to watch what happened that somebody over hit it. Yeah they over hit. It went into some vegetation. No one house on fire a few cars and nine thousand people without power. Don't do it kids. Well here's the thing. I still not better than that. I think if i were on a tennis court like in a contained with and it was nighttime that one night and it was all dark around. No light up golf. I've seen people do that on the internet about global or laser tag all all those fun things. Yeah the kids. They were teenagers. They were arrested no charges and released their parents.

I feel like the person to be jennings's unpopular enough. I don't know who that is. We should know exactly. No one knows who knows what that is like. Who was finally able to take down ken. Jennings that's probably trivia question somewhere i we're headed to make these wedding. He will be married tomorrow. Here's the thing it's going to rain it. Is you saw the forecast. It's been going to rain but they were a week. Yeah they have a contingency plan but you never wanna see that like like the ironic song irony or just bad about irony but maybe it's good luck you know. People say that about their wedding but the only say that because sucks trying to be positive about it does change it and say it's good luck going to what do you mean. I don't know we can just change it and say rain on your wedding day is good luck. Well that's what they do say. Oh i thought it was bad law. No they always say it's good luck and people.

The Dangerous Path of America, Trusting the Science, Falling In/Out of Love | ASK ME ANYTHING

"You're a man of action you live life to the fullest embrace your fears and boldly charge your own path when life knocks. You down. you get back up one more time. Every time you are not easily deterred rugged zillion strong. This is your life this we are. This is who you will become at the end of the day and after all is said and done you can call yourself a man. Mr kip swanson. what's up. man represent. That curveball had today. This is my favorite fisher. But it's not flat so what's with that but it's just the brown the leather on the black. You remember how riled up people got about flat brim versus curb rim. Like how pissed off they. Would you say as though it's past tense. I'm sure if we just start talking about it again. We should still around us. That's that's actually. The funny thing is thinking about this weekend with social media. Because i was watching the fights did you watch the fights by the way oris crazy night we crap. Yeah everybody was all riled up about jake. Paul and dc getting as a love. It and i love it too. I think it's funny but it's also kinda sad. It's sad that and i don't think it's anything new. It's probably oldest man himself. That we get so riled up about the dumbest shit. Oh that that that's consuming us. You know you have people. You don't know consume individuals who are trying to put like real value out in the world and all you hear crickets and then you have dumb asses who are just making a bunch of noise spouting off running their mouth jack and jaw and that's where all of the attention goes. There's a lesson there to be learned especially when it comes to marketing. Yep then also against who we are as humans. It's so it's so pathetic. Entertainment wins yeah. If it's entertaining. You know and i think there's two being entertained. I'm not saying there isn't there's value of course to comedy and just being able to unplug but when it consumes us to the point where we won't read good books. We won't listen to podcasts. We won't go to the gym. We won't eat right. We won't worry about our own physical and mental health. We just wanna be entertained all the time. That's a problem that's a problem. Yeah toll from fight. Think about oh good favorite fight. I mean watching knock What's hang out holy cow. The ipad grows mad. She is wholly. she's she is so unassuming so unassuming. Yeah i love her and you see. You're like this gal who's this. And she's a killer but of course uis madman that overhand right was the most vile i think. Probably it's safe to say the most violent well executed punch that i have seen in ufc. Yeah i don't. I don't think i've seen a guy get knocked out and his head bounce off like your guys. The guys is shoulder on the way to me like he. He went all the way through. And i watched that. Because you know the clips come up on instagram. I watched it on instagram over and over again. And i'm like damn that is violent. That is a dangerous dangerous man right there home cow or sure that way. I didn't. I didn't think it would play out like that though. Yeah but i knew. I was pretty confident win. That fight agreed metoo but and then what about wiedeman with his leg. What are the odds that he no seals thing and he did that busy fighting member yeah and broke his leg the same way silva broke his leg on him on. My dude was a class. Act on that though. Did you post fight interview. Yeah yeah the way that he approached. That man who was it was awesome. It was really touching but it was just. It was very cool the way that he honored chris. He acknowledged his family. He said wherever. I am in the rankings. If and when you come back because that might be a career ending injury. Yeah i'll give you fight wherever i. It doesn't matter where i am. I'll give you another fight. It was it was. It was a very classy response to a horrible situation. All yeah oh that was brutal and then he he kicked and then he stepped back up on it. Yeah do you see his face in slow mo. he doesn't even act like anything got hurt. We'll just so happened so quick right and you just steps back and then collapses yeah. That's why my so trish was like why did you step back. And i'm like he's been training that dog for he's done thousands and thousands of repetitions and you kick and you get back into position. So he kicked in his body did what he was trained to do. And how would he know that. In a in a fraction of a second you know there could be tons of nerve damage. Maybe it wasn't even painful at the moment. You know who knows speaking of nerve damage to five before that was before the. I can't remember the guy's name escaping me right now but he kicked him in the back of the leg and all i must this one. Oh dude i can't even remember who it is anyways. The guy kicked him in the back of the leg and hit a nerve must have hit. A nerve and his whole leg was just rendered useless. He was stepping on his feet and like tripping and they call them invite handle because he was a nerve he couldn't it was like his leg wasn't just dangling wasn't even functioning at that. That's that's one of my favorite fights of all time was josie aldo against on alpha male. Guy a california kid and you're just fate was a riot favor yeah and aldo just psychic psychic psychic and by the by by the time the fight was over he's falling over couldn't stand on it was just all over constantly and his leg which is rude will become more and i mean it is already but it's going to become more and more common in those inside and outside low leg. Kicks are just becoming more and more common look mcgregor. Yeah you ali cow. You got the calf kick constant. Cath kicks you know. It's the evolution of the fight and so people are going to learn how to defend it and it's something else are man well enough about. Ufc we get into some questions. An ama on instagram. The other day. And i was answering them. Live and i probably got through fifteen to eighteen percent of the questions. I didn't realize gambari. I like it. I mean that's what i've what. I added size questions But i just can't get through them also figured the ones that i couldn't get to try to scoop up some of them here on this podcast. Yeah yeah we have a little extra just a couple from facebook and then yeah thank you. I spent five hours scrolling through comments trying to figure which ones you did reply. I was like okay. Give you a little hint here. I should have told you this. I think you can scroll at least i can on my own. I think you can select by newest comments. I can you not do my goodness it. Maybe you can't do that when you're on somebody else's i know that i can look at my own comments on online by news. I don't think you can buy new tech guy didn't know yeah. Sorry i'll now. It was fine. It was it was okay. Let's rapid fire on facebook. And then we'll get to the instagram questions. Okay sounds good. And we're questions from the order. Man facebook group. That's facebook dot com slash group slash order. Man all right cody brown. Are there times you feel less of a man. Because you don't know how to do something no i don't i don't i don't i don't feel like not knowing how to do something. Unmanly i think what is unmanly is acknowledging. You don't know how to do something and then not doing anything about it. Next question avoiding it. Yeah right all right. Trevor bodey what are some tactics you guys used for being an asset your wife when you've had newborns and the house things for everything that you guys are doing. Look for things that you could do. Don't ask her just acknowledge and recognize what they are and do them. You don't need to ask her. How can i help if you really wanna help. And be an asset. Look around the house. Look things that need to be cleaned. Look at repairs need to be done. Take the other kids off your hand. Her hands if that's an issue but acknowledged what needs to be done and do it. Don't ask her what needs to be done. Next question john tarpley after becoming more self aware and realizing how much opportunity i have to improve the things i have to be a good be. Good at being a man and a good man. What in your opinion is the best way to help my son adjust to the changes in me as i work to effectively become a better man and help overcome the bad example. I have set for him to this point. I know changing it and living. It is the long term solution but any ideas on how to use psychology of a six year old boy to instill the knowledge that i am at forty four just just knowing and beginning to utilize i feel like i have set my son up for failure and i want more than anything to spare him. My stupidity i do not want his failures to be due to my failure to prepare him for what is to come. Thank you cool worthy worthy path. That you're on simple answer right here. Open your mouth and communicate. I think he said he was six years old. Being an example is good and and you acknowledged that over the long haul just being an example and doing it. Right is the best thing you can do. Sure also communicate. Let him know where you fall. Short let him know. This is how i used to be. This is what i used to do. And here's why i do it this way now. And here's why that's important in our evolution as men in y how we can get better and how we can improve so in addition to being example open communicate be vulnerable as much as i don't like using that word. Tell him where you fell. Short in the past white crazed created problems of what kind of problems at traded. and why. you're correcting your behavior. The more that you aligned your words with your actions the better able he is a six year old will be able to formulate. Why all of a sudden dad has changed. You need to connect the dots next question. Tell us when we're done facebook. I wanna get to these instagram one. So mondays around for a while. So paul clifton. I don't love my wife three kids together. Why should i continue. I don't know why. I mean. I can't answer that question for you. Other than you made a commitment. I would say that's a very valid reason for you to continue to at least work towards it but can you fall out of love with someone yes but you can also fall back in love with them too so i hear this a lot. A lot of guys are falling out of love with their wife or vice versa. Wife is falling out of love with husband. And then i've seen it not miraculously but over time i've seen it change where couples begin to fall in love again. So you owe it to her. You ought to yourself and if you have kids in the mix you owe it to them as well To follow through on your commitments and we need to become new people in order for that to happen because she fell out of love. You fell out of love with her the person she is right now but you fell in love with somebody else right. You fell in love with her when she was ten years or fifteen years younger. What's different between then and now probably a iraq the way that you've matured thought processes. Maybe you fallen into ruts. Both her and you and there might be some ways that you can get out of those rats by playing and being spontaneous and going on new adventures together recommitting to each other going on date nights attempting to serve as best. You can her. And all of those ways. I think are valid or falling in love with someone. I think it's possible And you owe it to her flat out like you you committed. Are you a man of your word or not. And all the guys who are listening who are divorced or going through separations. This is not necessarily an indictment against you. Because i realize there are extenuating circumstances and i believe there are extenuating circumstances. But only you can answer whether or not you've done everything that you could possibly try and do only you can answer that. I can't answer that for you. i can't convince you. It's not even my position to tell you why you should stick around. That's for you to decide. But these are all strategies you can employ to hopefully move things in the right direction. And the lane thing i would add. Ryan is be clear on quote unquote her changing versus your perception of her know. I think it's really easy. It's like oh. I fell because of x. And not owning that like you might be pigeonholing her or passing judgment and and some of it might be your perception like did you start. Did you stop learning about who she was. Did you stop being curious about her year. To mean an and you've kind of you know become stagnant and how you see her. You know so. I just owning your perception. Yeah it's all perception everything that you believe about life is bullshit thing about that every single thing that you think about the way the world works or how your boss behaves or how your wife or your children are. it's all bullshit. It is not objective. Truth you're making stories up positive and negative. You're making stories up you're using your culture your experiences your background to make up stories about circumstances and other people so when you talk about your perception of her if you're just making up a story she doesn't love me she's not a good wife. She's not doing what she quote unquote should be doing. She doesn't contribute. She doesn't appreciate me. Those are all what i would consider negative perceptions. Right if you're going to create some negative perceptions why not create positive perceptions. So just the other night i was sitting down. I was watching a tv show and my wife was in the other room working on her seeds because she loves to grow her garden in the spring. And so she's got her seedlings and she's doing that in the house until we can move him outside until it warms up enough and i walked through by the laundry room and the room that she does her. Seedlings is just right off the laundry room so i walked by laundry room and i just stopped and stared at her for a minute and just watched her. I was so intrigued and fascinated. She was so happy and she was so she didn't see me. She was so focused and intent and was giving each little plant so much attention and she was measuring the water just right and she was making sure the lights were adjusted up and down and i was just fascinated intrigued and my perception is. This is a woman who cares about this deeply who finds value in this who has joy in life. Those are all my perceptions those are positive perceptions and who wouldn't appreciate that if that's how they viewed it now. If i look if i walked by an i welcome. How do hokum shoes it hanging out with me. How can you get vegetables from walmart. Right exactly exactly so and who would who alternately who would appreciate that if that's the perception that you had you get to make it up. It's everything about your life. You're making up everything everything about the way that you feel about yourself the way you feel about others. It's it's a fairytale make believe so. Just make it the best story possible one. That's going to serve you and other people will and you win all right japanese instagram. These are being filled. Firm ryan's account at rye miklos that's l. Er marquand our first question as a growing man. Show your significant other. What type of family you want. And what values you'd like to instill in your hopeful household. I showing a little bit difficult. If you don't have that family. But i think open lines of communication talking about what you would like to do and how you'd like to discipline and where you'd like to live and what the culture of your home with would like to be and what your own family was like and what you appreciate it about that and what. You didn't appreciate about that and asking her. What did she like about her family. And what didn't you like about how her family was was raised and what their culture was and then looking to other people too. I looked to a lot of other people yourself included. Were i think okay well. Here's something that kept us really well. And here's what mark does and i see this guy. Interact with his wife. And i see that men interact with his children. And i i point those out. I talk i recognize it myself but then i also acknowledged with my wife like hey. Did you see that one thing that they did or even if it's on instagram. Hey look at this post. And i might share it with her. I might talk with her about it. We're always talking always sharing. We're always looking for examples and then we try to implement those things so it's possible it just takes a little bit more effort It's very easy to slip into a really comfortable situation where you know after work is over you. Just sit down. And you don't talk about anything meaningful or significant as if that's the path of least resistance but the path of more resistance but also better is to open your mouth to share to talk about these real issues and figured out figured out together because you're talking about it you're illustrating it. You're you're looking around. You're sharing articulating what it looks like. And then as you start to have children than and even before you'll start to build a culture that mimics what it is you see. I know this is not the question. But like increasing communication. It's interesting how you'll get that as a byproduct of other things asia my wife. She wants to do a marathon. We signed up for marathon later this year and so we started distant running on the weekends. Well we're stuck running together now for two plus hours. It's like we address everything that there needs to be addressed now right because you can talk each other. Yeah well luckily. We're not running slow enough that we can chat all day. But do you get what i'm saying. Like course i never even thought about it. And i actually. This is really great. Because we're talking through everything working through schedules. What should we do with this kid. I'll this makes me frustrated and we get a run in. There's ways to to great that right. Maybe out running for everybody but it's worked out. Well i think you're right. You know my my wife and i went to neighboring town to pick to go to home depot which is about an hour and a half away from us. We that this weekend because we had to pick up some stuff and we all got in the car me and my two youngest kids. You'll always around vacation so home depot's hour and a half away. My joke that no one goes the home depot. Once right like the mid. I make a trip to home depot. Either trips i can't imagine being away. No i have local hardware stores. We're all on a saturday. If i'm doing projects around the house i'm in three or four times a day for sure. Yeah okay very much the same so we go down to home depot and we get in the car and we pack the two youngest kids out. The two oldest kids are on vacation. They're traveling with their grandparents. And the first twenty minutes of the driver silent because we know each other. We've been together for seventeen years. We know each other we fall under ruts like it is just it is what it is okay and so we're just i'm driving quiet. She sitting there quiet and it was fine. You know that's fine but it took us a little while to get into the swing of things even though we've been together so long. We believe so much in communication at took his twenty or thirty minutes before we started talking about goals and aspirations. What's coming up this week. In this funny thing we heard and so if you create the environment for it then it's going to happen. Sometimes you have to actually manufacture that environment to do it though because we all fall under us like like you said. Now you're not going to have a conversation like that but you manufactured it maybe unintended but it was manufactured through the run right. Yeah that's when. I that's why asia likes going on vacations right because i that's usually when i opened up but i never wanna go on them. You know want it probably takes you a day or two also takes the plane ride over the big roof to let go of stuff all right cap per twenty-five mr mick or what is your current biggest fear. My biggest fear is a little different than a lot of people. Normally think of my my biggest fear is die before my kids are out of the house. that's legitimately my biggest fear that and and also being insignificant is a big fear of mine. I wanna be significant. I wanna be influential. Wanna be wasted life kind of it. Well yeah but. I just want to be valuable to people like i want. I want their life to be better. Because i was in and that to me is significance that because i was around. Somebody's life was better. Maybe this much better maybe a whole lot better maybe. He was incalculable. But just better. Because i was around her have some level of influence in life. That's important to me and then to go back to the first thing is. I don't want my children tag. Be without me at least until they're out of the house. Yeah i still don't wanna die after that but you know like i. I really don't want to happen while my kids are at home and you. Why do you think that stems from. Oh it stems from not having a data my life. Yeah yeah. Because i know what it's like i know what it's like to not have your dad around and not be able to have meaningful conversations or to ask a significant an important question or to roughhouse into play and i know what that's like. I'm intimately familiar with that. So i don't want my children to experience it and the only way they would experience that is if i was incapacitated or dead right chad wing concern. I have a deep burden for men in our country. And i want to follow your footsteps by do you have. I mean i've laid it out pretty pretty well Just mimic what we do. We got a podcast. We've had three hundred fifty conversations with some absolutely incredible human beings. We've done a really really good job at creating a community on social media we've implemented events. Were talking about real issues. I'm learning to articulate a message. I don't have anything special or unique. You already haven't heard. But here's what i would say for anybody whether you want to do what we're doing here or you wanna get stronger or you want to improve your jujitsu game or you want to become a hunter or you want to be some sort of business. Tycoon whatever it is just look around at the people who were doing what you wanna do and do what they do. It's that simple. Follow what they do. Pay them to for coaching if they offer coaching hire them. I've hired countless people to help me in different facets of my life and there isn't one person that i've hired who i've regretted or haven't that hasn't been an investment where i make more money back than what i spent on having them. Consult and advise me so look at what's successful people are doing do what they do. Pay them to tell you how do it and decor a shortcut some of these these corners that you would normally trip all over if you didn't have somebody telling you where they were and get after it's there it is all there you just have to do. Well an maybe. You're just being humble here. But like i read this question. I'm like band with us year to me and like share this message right if if if we're on the same page right in what we're doing is in line with what you're doing what you want to make an impact around like join us band with us you know. Share this message. Show the podcast. You know like. I don't know i don't know about you but like it's interesting because i think we get quite a bit of guys that follow you around. Because they're like well. I want to be a podcast. Or and i wanna be an influence from the space. I'm always kind of like i love. I love what order man is doing. I love what we're doing iron council. I have no plans to recreate it. I'll support it. Your because it's it's in line with what i think you know. So i don't know i i think that's right. I think a lot of people probably action. I'm not gonna no. I don't think it's that. I just think it's maybe a lack of wanting a desire to do that particular thing and that's fine you know i know there's there's hundreds of thousands of men who share what we're doing. They tune into the podcast. They follow us on youtube and all the social media channels they get the emails they buyer merchandise to events and they have no ambition whatsoever to do what i'm doing. They have ambition but not to do this. Yeah that's fine if it were me. Let's say the roles were reversed kit. And i saw what you were doing. I would go out and start my own thing. Because that's my personality and although and following when i started this that i really admired and appreciated and respected what they were doing but it just wasn't quite right. Manley assist great example. Brett mckay over art manliness does phenomenal job. He's incredible use a very early influence in the way that we started order of man and why. I wanted to start what we're doing here. But there was some things that he was doing. Not that i disagreed with. But that just didn't feel like we're the right path for me. So i couldn't do what could have i'm not gonna say better but could have done. Not even say could have done different. I'm just going to say that he was going down. This path and part of the pathway are walking together and then we came to a fork in the road and he goes this way. I'm like okay. Well we are not. I'm not really interested in that path. I'm gonna actually go down this one And so i started my own thing. And then i've found other people who are doing things that are similar like well like that. I don't like this. i like this. Take this ad this tweet. This adjust this and it becomes your own thing but for me and my personality and my desires. Starting my own organization was important to me and it's done very very well so those guys who tune in and they wanna to do something similar. I say yeah do that. Don't steal what we're doing but take the things that are working. Well mimic them make them your own do it in your own voice in your own unique way and you'll have a lot more success than doing it my way. That's for sure. Yeah yeah. I like right next question and souls in war. Do you have plans to get joe. Rogan podcast or vice versa. I'm sure joe rogan's not on the radar for mr ller. I don't even know who. I don't even know who that is. Yeah e. who you know what's next question. Yeah of course. I would love to have joe rogan podcast. Of course i'd love to go on his podcast and we're working different angles and different connections and making requests doing that. With not just joe. Rogan but jordan peterson and micro and and hundreds of other men who got on our radar and some of. It's going to work and some of it isn't and in the meantime we're just gonna put our head down and go to work and become more influential and by the way to your point earlier about sharing this message guys. This is actually the reason. This is part of the reason. This is one of the reasons. I need you to share because the more that you share not only is it going to be more visible for other people and able to give other men in your life who are important you information. They need to thrive but the more influencing authority and credibility that we have with more of you the more weight. We have to throw around when it comes to podcasts. Guest lag jordan peterson joe rogan. Some of these heavy hitters. It's unfortunate is that way. But i understand you know you take a guy. Like rogan peterson or micro. they're busy. They've got their own things they've got they've got requests coming out of every every place you know it's like everyone wants them under five. So how do we cut through that. We become like cal. Newport would would say so good. They can't ignore you. And so we're gonna work our angles to get these great guests on the podcast and connect with these guys and also we're going to become so good at what we're doing that at some point whether it's in the next six months for the next six years they can no longer ignore us and our beating down the door to come onto our podcast and be part of what we're doing but in order for that to happen we need hundreds of thousands of men who are already connected with what we're doing sharing with other individuals so hundreds of thousands turned into millions tens of millions and then how can ignore us. I want to take this message of masculinity and see so often men will use the term redefine masking that. I'm not going to redefine it. I'm going to reestablish it. it doesn't need. It's already been redefined by by pop culture. I'm going to reestablish that working out. Well it's not working out well so we're going to reestablish it and i'm going to take this message to the masses to the mainstream because right now this whole concept of masculinity in traditional masculinity and the nuclear family a lot of that is kind of underground an. It's only with a certain amount of people and i wanna take that message to the masses. I want to be mainstream on order of man to be a mainstream name. Just like the joe. Rogan experience is a mainstream name. And it's gonna take the work that kick you doing here. And of course dozens of hunters of other guys. Who who are actually doing work here with us and it's gonna take the hundreds of thousands of men to share it to re post it to talk about it to send somebody a link. That's what it's gonna take. So that's your part. We're doing our part. You do your part together. We'll make some of the stuff happen. Stance sixty three. If you could only have one book to read and study other than the bible what would it be. It's i mean the bible is so there's so much depth to the bible. I think it's not it's out for you. A book of books. Not just a book. It's a book of books. So there's so much depth there. I mean there's the classics like as a man is one. Wild at heart is another one iron john by robert bly is another one. I think it'd probably be between one of those three. I don't know if you have suggestions. I be really if you only have one book to study for the rest of your life. That's a that's an interesting question. So if you guys have suggestions let i think about the book. I've read the most over and over. What is it as a man thinks is probably the book i've read the most. Yeah i think it's it's just hard to say that because it's all you're going to read for your life it's just so profound it's profound and it changes and you you see and hear different things and you hear him in different ways based on where you are in life so that will list. I would say it's probably probably that are wild at heart. Read those sovereignty. I would read sovereignty over and over again. You're so good serious. So good so many reuters to them. This guy's incredible. Yeah that's what i would say. Love vooc noah when you first read man in the arena. How did you interpret it and apply it into your life. I'm not real philosophical my nature. I'm very pragmatic very practical. Yeah so i look at it and just say okay. Just go to work. I mean i. i've got right here. It's it's it's on my wall right here. So how did i interpret it. I guess i just thought okay. Well the guy actually doing it is the guy that really counts. So get your ass to work the end. I don't. I never really gave it much more thought than that so i'm not i'm not. I'm not what. I would consider an intellectual or deeply philosophical like i said a more pragmatic practical. So it's not the critic accounts it's the one in the arena. So okay well. I want count. I just told you. I wanna be influential. I want to be significant. I told you that's what i wanted to do. So given the arena. Go to work. Don't don't worry about the what what the critics say. Don't worry about failing in and falling short. That stuff's going to happen from time to time. But it's more important than you get up there and you actually swing the bat. So i took it very literally now notions literally because we're not getting india arena. Actually but i took. I took it from more of a pragmatic approach a practical application of. Yeah all right ed. How much time do you spend our social media platforms day. What percentage is pleasure. And what is how much time for your business. It's all business. I actually don't enjoy being on social media because it goes back to what we were saying earlier about the entertainment and circuses. And i get on this thing. And i'm like this is so silly sisters retarded. I shouldn't be on this thing right now. Why why are we doing this. So when i'm on here it's all business related. I'm probably on their three to four hours a day. Three to four business purpose only. Yeah with twitter. Youtube instagram facebook. Whatever i could pull it up here on my device. I know it shows that i don't know where it is but it's probably three to four hours a day. That wouldn't surprise me if it was that. And it's all business related them sending messages and responding to messages. I'm looking for other people that we need to have on the podcast or following along with what they're doing to see how might influence what we're doing. I'm i'm on there quite a bit because this is this is where is this is where the work lies and this is where the people are too so i want to connect with the people here. They are connect with them. Jake from state farm. Oh yeah good to see jake here. Farm username yeah jake underscore from underscore state farm all under the same jake. I'm sure i'm sure i'm sure. Is he verified. That's what really counts as long as verified. Copy the little badge thing. It's okay. I'm gonna dock me. Guess we can take his question. Even if he's airforce section media hasn't told us these important. But i guess we can still take his question. Perception is it's jake from state farm all right What do you think the next three to five years looks like for america. We keep down this road. Our nation is currently on. Well you're going to see more red tape you're gonna see more restrictions you're going to be seeing more more lockdowns you're going to be seeing more legislation passed. You're going to see more divisiveness you're going to see people being pitted against each other. You're gonna see crime. Go up drug use. Go up fatherless homes. Go down We we know exactly where it's going to go. And it's it's atrocious. Horrendous see those in power Continue to enact laws and rules and regulations to solidify and consolidate their power. We know exactly where this goes. It's his old man himself. And so unless we learn to step up to speak up to reject these ideologies of the doctrine of popular culture. This is exactly where we're going to go and it's going to be dangerous Were not going to be able to exercise freedoms the way that we are today We're gonna be manipulated And strong armed and coerce. We're gonna lose first amendment rights second amendment rights and it's going to become unrecognisable as a country. It's going to happen over time and gradually you know a lot of people say oh you come down by near whoever is in office or not trying to take your firearms. No they're not trying to take our firearms necessarily because if they just came out and said. Hey we're gonna bullish the second amendment. Everybody would be honest game and we'd be able to reject that easily and decisively but it's going to be little things like legislation and banned these modifications and banned these upgrades and we're going to tax them differently. We're going to charge you attacks and we're going to create a national firearms registry. And so it's little by little so little that we don't even acknowledge it or we actually interpret it as being a good thing and that's how it's going to happen. We're gonna be so grateful that our our rights have been stripped away from us because it's in the world and you know and singer utopian society and people will be happier people will be better and big brother will take care of us. The path that we go down is leads directly to authoritarianism communism. That's the path is the path. There's no way around it. So we need to reject it at every turn. We need to be hyper hyper vigilant and realized that the freedoms that we enjoy carry some inherent risk. We have to be okay with that as individuals we have to be okay with some level of risk and personal responsibility by the way. Yeah we are to maintain our individual rights. yes. I am glad that you added that last part because i think at the center of this is victimhood. It is me not taken responsibility for things and in seeking someone else to take care of it for me. Well in the government knows that right so they play to. They played the ignorant they play to the poor they play to the impoverished and they champion those people by telling them their victims. The world is out to get them we can take care of everything is wrong and we are your savior. But they played in. Yeah you need us. You can't on your own right but they don't play it intelligent people. They don't play the strong. They don't play to the sovereign because they know those people can't be influenced sixty seventy eighty ninety percent of the people who believe themselves victims at the hands of the twenty to thirty percent of the individual. Like at some point the scales are gonna tip their tipping now and then they demonize the strong the else or not you know. Oh well you must not care then right. If you're not in line with us you know will receive that with police officers right now. You know there's a whole community that is being told that police officers hate them. they're systematic procedures and policies in place that are designed to victimize these individuals. This is what we see in. That story is being repeated by the media. by that. when i say the government. I'm talking about the highest echelons of government. The president and vice president of the united states are perpetuating this narrative. So you have the media you have the government telling these individuals that police officers are systematically targeting and discriminating against them. This story is being played out over and over and over again. And i made a post on twitter the other day just because somebody repeat something over and over and over again doesn't make it true but the media and the government know that and they prey on people's who don't understand that yeah so it's the same thing with the mass thing you can hear over and over and over and over again and eventually like oh i guess yeah yes master pretty important that does who is and for study comes out and says there's negative health benefits to it. All what's positive reshape the narrative which is keep right all those in forward with whatever you know narrative we've already created. I mean even this last thing with the police officers it was crazy. How quick everyone was another racist police officer despite the fact that in my opinion guys freaking hero and your opinion stab objectively. He is a hero. Yeah it's crazy. It's it's it's horrible and then we hear things like we'll trust the science trust. The science. Come on man trust the science. What science what are you referring to like. You can't just say trust the science and then not give me any signed numbers. Yeah you say. Trust the science. Tell me what science. We'll ouchi we'll show me what science he's looking at every time the cdc for example makes a case against lockdowns and restrictions. They the presidency gets involved out. She gets involved and then they reverse like twenty four hours later to. Why did you reverse it all the science. Show me just trust it. Just trust this. I know i don't trust it. i don't trust you. There's like three people in my life. That i trust who they said something like ninety nine percent. Sure they're telling me the truth. And everybody else. I don't totally trust. There's no there's very few institutions. There's very few people out there okay. Show me you don't trust me. No no i don't show me or or or it's not even trust. I think sometimes it's like well let me understand how you're interpreting that information because no other thing like your guidance much credit to like even with me like you and i can interpret things differently right and you should still say. Show me the data yet. Because i want to understand it. I think that's me myself. But yeah i think i think you're being too kind. I think you're you're you're you're coming from the position of like. Oh let me understand this. And maybe they're just ignorant about it. No i actually think they're not ignorant about it and they're they're being deceitful deceit behalf deliberately and intentionally being deceitful and so no i don't. I don't trust you until you can prove to me that you should be trusted in this particular instance and if you happen to be right about this all good okay. Let's let's evaluate it. And then the next time i'm gonna ask you again because i don't trust you i i had a i pulled up Opposed from on instagram. From candace owens. And i think when i read this the other day i thought man. This is so much at the center of victimhood and not taking responsibility. If you don't mind me sharing. This says i'm sick of people saying cops need more training. You had eighteen years to teach your kid. It's wrong to loot still set buildings on blaze blocked. Traffic laser. people's is over tune cars and destroyed buildings and attacks citizens who fell to. I agree with that but it's a false dichotomy. I agree but i liked the fact that like hey are like please do. Please still need more training. Sure they do however like more training. Y yeah look at areas. you know. She's not wrong. I i i deal with this on social media where i'll make a post about something i made one the other day about. You know the world would be better if they had more engaged in honorable fathers in the home. And if you don't have children then. I think you have a responsibility as a man to father somebody. Yeah not not be their daddy. What i'm saying. Father as in a father figure yes. As in advise coach council instruct teach educate father them. Not a little father. And the guy's like well. You know. I disagree because the family court systems this and some fathers are assholes and would be horrible if kids had astles in their home. The do you really think that's what i'm talking about. You dumb ass. Yeah you really think what i'm saying by families need fathers in the home is a bunch of shitty alcoholic abusive fathers like. Is that really what you think. And even if it was what you're saying about the family core system or abusive fathers. Those are valid points. I think we ought to evaluate the family court system. i think we are kind of fathers. We're gonna be yes. That's not even the point of what i'm saying right now. And they aren't mutually exclusive. So when i hear things like well. Let's stop talking about police training. Let's talk about personal responsibility. Yeah i mean sure. Let's talk about both. they're not mutually exclusive. Both can be true. We can talk about individual responsibility. We've been doing that for six years here on this podcast and also let's talk about giving our law enforcement officials and officers the tools and the resources and training. They need. we can do both and we should do both. Yeah agreed alright. So i was going to skip this question but maybe but i'm ignorant to it so i'm not sure if this is stupid question or not bill. Yeah so let's clarify. We skip your stupid questions. So if that what. I like is how you're like. I might be ignorant but it's probably just a stupid question. I it could be one or the other and you're like it's gotta be that it's stupid not that i'm ignorant about maybe i'm thinking about it. Let's hear it all right bill and be fifty one thoughts on the boston. Be a man guy to that too. Okay boston be yeah. Great discussion point. But i i didn't know who the guy wasn't us. Maybe thinking you would so yeah boston. What is it boston. be a man guy. The thoughts on the foster quote unquote be a man guy. I'm assuming some guy saint-pierre man in boston. I don't know was on me. Well i'll tell you based on some assumptions. He's probably an asshole but he's probably right. I could be way off. But i'm curious to see if i'm close up to google google this all right mr evans. Best concealed carry holster company. In your opinion best. Consol i don. I don't i don't know i mean. I like warrior poets society stuff. They've got a lot of firearms stuff. And i didn't know they made holsters. I think they've got a couple of holsters and different upgrades and firearms. I don't. I don't know that we had a guy i forgot the company we had a guy Freedom holsters. he was making order of man. Ones yeah dean. Kennedy is his name. He made some really cool. I've got a couple from my glock. Forty three that i really like with like ordering a custom cammo so we could add that up because that is a holster that i really like. Nah i don't even think of kennedy holster company. Hannity co or. Yeah so check that out all right. Violent by nature needs to him to see if he can still do order him and stuff now assumed that yeah but still mean even if he doesn't he's got other holsters for just about every firearm out there. i'm sure violent by nature designs. How do you feel about the whole april twenty. Four th bullshit and this is where i'm like. Maybe i should watch the news more often. Because i have no idea what occurred on the twenty fourth. I don't either now. Sorry april twenty fourth bullshit. Yeah april twenty. Fourth bullshit so. I'm assuming something happened on the twenty fourth. it's bullshit that'd be a good assumption. I dunno as you can tell keep an eye are are very we are on the times. Uncultured swine. I would say what it is. I was thinking about it. You know how. Often i watch tv like almost zero. I don't watch tv. watch show. but i don't use was license all i see here. So here's what came up on. Google april twenty four and then it and then april twenty four and it came up with national day was the first thing so i clicked april twenty four th national day and on april twenty fourth firth fourth. You're supposed to observe national pigs in a blanket day. But i don't think that's bullshit. I think that's actually a pretty good idea. Oh i know what he's talking about. Yeah i know what he's talking about. I did hear this. Because here's the second thing april twenty fourth origin is that they're even hesitate is because it's so disgusting and despicable but there was a thing i think it was on. Read it that they were referring to april twenty fourth as national rape day. Yes disgusting okay. What's the i don't even understand the point. We'll just because you're a moral decent human being so of course you don't understand that but yes i think it was either on tiktok reddit or somewhere. Somebody had had made that claim that april twenty th was national rape day and then it kinda gained some traction and i don't i don't know disgusting. Well you're right bullshit or right for sure river. we don't give that stuff credence either. Like it's not again it comes. It's even if it was intended to be funny. It's not funny. it's not funny. it's not a joke. It's not funny but again this comes back to what i was saying earlier. Entertainment and shock value. That's what gets the most attention if you're entertaining. And you can shock people and say stupid shit that maybe you don't even believe they get attention for that and so they're dealing in outrage and this is actually one thing i actually. I listen to a lot of conservative podcasts. And radio and things like that and this is one of the problems i have with it. Is they draw light to these stupid stories in these stupid people. That don't need attention. But they talk about them and they're like hookah illnesses. Ya stop talking about it. You know that those individuals just want attention and then we give it to them by talking about it. Even if we're telling people how horrible it is but that's exactly what they wanted so they got what they wanted and then. We told them that you should do that again. Because you get what you want all right next question. This guy's a would you ever consider carving a spoon have carpenter spoon. I never have. But i would certainly monitor it. It's very fun is that we did. Yeah wellcoll which i told you. We went camp with the family and we didn't bring any utensils so like if you want to eat your food you gotta make a spin colder cycle of your cup or whatever so yeah it was fun. I you guys can build your spoons. I'm going to build a canoe. See floats my spoon over to million at the same time. It could go either way for sure. All right jordan loves jujitsu. I wonder what jordan does not as pastime jordan love jitsu atmosphere michler. Probably just about jiu. Jitsu you'd probably. Yeah actually do it. Here we go. So what books are you currently reading. And then second question. What rank are you in. in in the jit's beginner jujitsu. I would say it's my rank learning novice the path yes punching bag punching dummy. Whatever you call it What am i reading. I'm reading a book called little there in my in my room but little and often by trent pressler he was actually. He's the podcast we'd released yesterday as this record are so that really really good And then winning. By tim grover. Because i as the release of this podcast. I recorded conversation with tim two days ago as of the recording. This podcast recording with tim this afternoon. Show those are the two books that i'm reading right now. Yeah and then if you guys figure out what day we're actually doing this recording you get extra a star golden star you get a golden star on your your little our little poster board with all your names and everything on it with your participation board eras rankin ju jitsu i am a blue belt but i don't feel worthy of that. Most days got the blue. Well i don't think anybody. That's i shouldn't say it that way. I think most people never filled their. They deserve the rank in which they have. But i think that's a good sign. I think if you felt you deserved it then that might be a little bit of a warning or a red flag that maybe you need a dose of humility. Yeah maybe the ego needs to be crushed by someone on the mats at your which will happen. Most definitely live bound. Sometimes i think i'm too hard on my boys. Where do you draw the line results. It question actually. I liked it is. It is a good question but So but the blind is so hard to define at this thing. It's not if any every varies every kid every situation's a little different depending on the child. So there's so many variables but really it's just about results like if you yell and scream and hit. Are you producing the right results in your children. Now you're just. You're beating down your humiliating. Potentially you're making them feel bad about themselves and that's not actually serving the purpose. The purpose is to raise confident self sufficient little human beings and so the line is enough discipline just the right amount not too much but the minimum required dose of discipline so that they will learn the lesson that needs to be learned and it will move towards becoming self sufficient. Look i lose my patience. Sometimes i yell. Sometimes i'd get a little harsher. Say something mean that. I shouldn't say i'm. I'm not saying i don't do that. Stuff i do. And in those moments i feel bad. And i feel guilty but i really do. Try to make a conscious effort when i have the discipline my children. For whatever reason to remember why. I'm disciplining them is not because they're annoying is not because it can't you're mad and angry. Yeah it's because. I want them to win. I want them to thrive and i want them to succeed. And so a you could break young cha you could break an adult through verbal and emotional abuse manipulation and the words. You're using the things that you're saying. Let alone a child and impressionable child so we have to be very very careful. That's why i say. The minimum required dose to produce the effect about come and that's hard too because the effective outcome may be something that will only show and reveal itself in twenty years not something that's going to reveal itself today so that also creates that makes it harder because you want to correct the behavior now and some of it you. Can you know if my children for example get mouthy with their mom timeout. Think about why you're timeout. Then when you're done come back and usually even in when i put my kids in time out. I usually don't even set a timer on timeout. I don't say good your room for fifteen minutes because the point is not fifteen minutes. Point is when you're ready to come back right dressing issue correctly or when you're even i've dismissed my children from dinner because they're being gross or crude or disrespectful and say leave your plate here go sit on the stairs and when you're ready to be a functioning member of the family. It's up to you when you're ready to do it. You're welcome to come back to the table and fix the situation have dinner with us. I usually have to have this conversation my youngest auto and so he's five and so he'll go sit on the inyo he'll be at there for two or three minutes he'll holler ready to come back now. I'm like good. Come on back. And i don't get after him. I don't make him feel stupid or bad enough yet. Comeback to the table. Is there something you'd like to tell us. Yes i'm sorry for x. y. and z. Okay to be respectful at the dinner table with all of us. Yes great sit down. Start eating yeah. I have to remember what the purposes i always look forward to an opportunity to to quote something that you've said and i'm sure you appreciate it greatly in fact send you a little little extra gift in the mail for this one. Thank you appreciate it well. Let's see what i say. I didn't say that shit up hold up wasn't gift but i didn't tell you what it would be. It's all based on what it is. You're gonna you're gonna say the you've said this numerous times. And i really opened my mind my mind to this because i i realize that sometimes i'll get immediate results and undermine the long-term plan or share this idea of like. Yeah you can yell at your kids and maybe the room gets cleaned but pause and say what do i want them to learn. Now what i want them to do right and so that has helped me a lot because i have to remind myself like okay. Actually it's not the room really that i want clean. What i want is for them to take care of their things to be orderly. Or whatever. And that. When i when i think about from that perspective you approach differently like of course mike. Longish is different. The everything is different so yup play the long game a nice coming along. Thank you appreciate america. Caveman of this is great. This pat my myself my own back. So i'm scaling my business and need find a kip sorenson to help me figure out and helped me lead it. How do i find well. My number is for higher. Find the right guys. Help you lead is what i'm thinking. The question is here. There's a lot of different ways you know if you're gonna hire somebody or if you just need somebody to mentor and coach and council with i mean look. The way that that we got connected was a mutual friend. Matt jenkins introduce you join the facebook group. You were gonna leave the facebook group because you thought it was aamer. Didn't like initially or something and then you realize that we had a podcast. So i think you start listening to the podcast. Then you join the iron council and then he became a team leader. And i actually remember vividly. We have in conversations. I was gonna say on walks. That sounds weird. Buzz let events. We would go on hikes and things like that and i'd be able to have conversations with the team leaders and i remember vividly talking with you about the stuff and i acknowledged and recognized that. Okay kip that this is an asset. This is somebody who's got some things figured out you know and so you became a team leader. He became leader mentor than i realized. There's even more that that you're capable of doing invited you to this podcast with me because we had a good rapport. You brought something to the table. That i didn't so we have disagreements always with a level of respect and moving in the right direction but we don't always see that thing the exact same way and so it just i would say that was more of an organic approach to your involvement here with the order manner council which is certainly one way to do it and so i'm constantly looking for things that people are good at this guy. Seemed like reese. Reese is a great example. Yeah very good. With the data very good with the numbers he likes the processes and systems. And i don't like that stuff i'm like. No let's just do it and go anecdotally like we'll figure it out if it's working or not. He's like non-aligned. Let's actually pore over the data. I just got what he calls the recon report every monday. I get a recon report. And it's the data. It's the numbers. Here's where we are. Here's membership here's turnover like everything which is really valuable for me. Because i can see it in one snapshot. I'm like okay. Cool that gives me an idea. Good and i look for trends but he. He presented himself from. My perception is knowing those things and so we gradually got him involved in one project in two projects that made him a more integral part of what we're doing. Juku trick is the same way chris geico. Who does our events. We read event. One time in arizona locked down in the or meltdown in the desert flock. Down i'm so used to saying lockdown meltdown in the desert and and the it was it was in the middle of the summer. Which is why. I was called meltdown. Not locked down and the entire power in the building went off. We're at this event that they were doing and chris like sprung into action he got with the event coordinator. He was on the phone with other hotels and other venues. He was talking with like the power company in the hotel management. And i was like. Who's this like. I knew chris a little bit. But not like i do now. I'm like is this guy doing and and he figured everything out now. Fortunately if i remember correctly this was years and years ago. Seems like a power came back on but he had a in a matter of thirty minutes probably had another venue lineup. Had all taken care they were going to do a bunch of comp work for like it was crazy on ding lightbulb. This guy is very good logistics. He's very good with planning. And he's proven to be that way and the numerous events that we've run you know what i think. I think that that all those guys showed up in a particular way because they're fully committed. Sure yeah like. I really do think that that those guys are not like. There's no all i'm here to. You know to feel good about myself. I be a team lead because you know kind of a way of proper myself up. I don't think any of those guys are involved for that reason. I think they're fully committed to what this move it is. They're committed to bettering other men and they're committed to the outcome in the mission that you've set forward in the willing to do whatever that is to to progress. Yeah i agree. And i also think i'm willing to give that to them. Which isn't something. I've always been willing to totally. But i'm willing to hand it over and say here ron with this project and we'll see how it goes like one not going to give you access to everything and tell you to fix all of it but the hague this little piece and we'll see how it goes and it goes well or it doesn't go well maybe and then okay well good. He handled that well. Let's do something else and let's do another piece of the puzzle. And but that's something i've really had to work on because i didn't want to relinquish control that against your nature little bit totally. Yeah i want to be involved in everything. I wanna have my hand and everything. I wanna be a decision maker again. I want to be significant right. So if i have somebody else do it. That's at direct odds with what. I want of myself to be significant. 'cause kipp does it. Then kim significant. And i'm not and i'm realizing that if your significant in this movement and chris and drew and reese and everybody else is significant then that is actually getting what we want. Not necessarily what i want. That's moving the michigan four. Which is more important to me. Yeah i could. I could see that outside of the last somebody him a lot. There you go all right last question. So it's kind of team this up. So g brandon twenty nine next father and son event. That will be my wife and i were talking about it this past weekend when we were going to home depot and that will be mid september. We'll have dates probably this week or early next week. So we'll get that to you guys. It's a legacy event or dot com slash legacies where you can sign up it. Isn't there right now. But it will be ended this week beginning next week but mid mid september and then early october. We're going to do a main event. That's hundred man. The legacy events a father and son twenty dollars. Twenty sons about my neighbor. Who who's also a contractor coming over in the next couple of weeks to install some railing in the barn. So that way that will all be taken care of. And you and your sons won't fall out of the second story of my barnes which would hundred feet die when you're And then yeah. The the management will be early october.

#167 - Trevor Rosen of Old Dominion + The Band Name They Almost Used + 10 No. 1 Songs

"Yeah. I'm Erin Maki most as I'm writing and producing the hit podcast lore. Now, I'm opening the doors of my own virtual room of wonder with Aaron mckie's cabinet of curiosities every Tuesday and Thursday, you'll get a guided tour through some of the most bizarre corners of history from unexplainable moments and coincidences to people and objects that come with unusual backstories listen along on apple podcasts. I heart radio or wherever you listen to podcasts. Welcome. To the cabinet of curiosities out killing me. All really, I don't get them. Too bad. I get tired like I'm tired today. But I don't start like having all the symptoms. I just when I start to get extra tired. I realize it's probably allergies. I we're going to start. I guess I feel great. I remember by like last hour about web on those peleton's one of those. No, I just bought a nordictrack treadmill, which is really the same thing with the screen, and you out with people and go on does that now said nordictrack I thought like nine hundred four represent like an old school. But now, it's the wifi connection. Yeah. As I wrote hard, and at my body feels great, but the allergies like my whole head is just like anyway that during the podcast. Yeah. Apologies by the way. Episode one sixty seven we're starting now Trevor of Old Dominion, but what I didn't know Trevor is all these songs, pre I guess enduring that we're going to get into that you wrote. I mean who knew you were so rich. I don't know. I look at this house rich enough. So. I was coming in. I don't know why it might be walked up here to produce the show, and I was singing Zoot suit riot if that's on. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. I was thinking about band names 'cause I was thinking about you guys name because most Old Dominion playing in the NCAA tournament. Recently got to be weird for people to go all dominion Old Dominion, just kind of a weird because as you guys have gotten more popular. Now, it is now owned the name to some people are so then the university does I think so it's like we couldn't have foreseen it, but it's like free advertising for sure. And so with the name this the name of this band is cherry pop daddies just think about that for. I don't know if a Bank and to be named that right now, certainly not a country band. Pop radio at the time. And this song this whole sound was big. It was like, Jerry, pop daddies. And Brian Setzer orchestra. Couple more these big bands bed. Bad blue daddy. My name on my Email. Bobby? And so, but I was thinking cherry poppin daddies when you break that down, and we don't need to right here. But that's a that's a while ban named it really is they couldn't I don't think it'd be a pop band name right now could cross into the mainstream. Yeah. Although I mean, it does have that thing where like if you're young enough. You have no idea what what they're talking about. But there's no way there's no way that's the pervious band name as I'm thinking about it never been on the radio. Like, I'm thinking of again, all to because I was thinking as band name and not that all dominion share the same thing by any means. That's maybe the pervious ban name. I've ever heard that actually had a hit it, really. Is. I forgot hall surfers. Yeah. It just like it starts to become like, that's just the band name. You forget what the name actually is as terrible. Do you remember bottles overs pepper? We used to have to call him the beholder this again, I was a teenager. I was on the radio teenager my pepper, if you don't mind and the song came out and at first you could say bowl, and then they started to crack crackdown. Really, I'm butthole. Yeah. Do you remember this? Yeah. I thought it was such jammed back. It was so weird. Sometime. Yeah. That's good anyway. Yeah. Look at you guys. I think now, and I say this not even just to your face. I think you guys are my. Top three artists right now period, and my favorite band. Well, thank you, which I did not see coming, frankly, he just because you guys all of your. Let's break it down for you. Whatever you guys all get together. You're like is a bunch of guys like me, I normal dudes. Right. But then your records are all every song is so freaking good. Thank you. And I'm not saying this is to your face as out of your face also said to your face when you guys come in. But I listen to your whole records. Listen, nobody's records. I don't give a crap about records. Well, I'm in the land of put out put a single out give me three songs come back in a few months three more songs. But when you guys put out a record, I will say you've put the best records consistently of the past few years as a band. Thank you for saying that first of all I mean, that's that's a huge compliment. But you know, I think for us as songwriters. I mean, we have while five of us riders three of us have had publishing deals for long time. So I think that's always been our goal as we've just write so many songs, and we constantly trying to trim the fat, and just, you know, come up with a collection of the best songs are favorite song. So we always make that are going funny, and these days like people say up people aren't even going to be putting. Albums out pretty soon. It's just gonna be singles. But I always think like, well, that's part of the fun for me because I always loved bands that I listen to the album all the way through. So it's it's complementary say that because that for me personally is a goal. I don't want a skip -able song. There are about three. Maybe four artists who've put a record on the last couple of years not clinics on my friends, and I'll tell them I'd lead his seven it. You know, I'll try to be as honest. Yeah. Because I believe if you're honest all the time, then a compliment actually matter. I agree one hundred percent. So if I tell my friends don't really feel that so much when I do say, I'm feeling that. They know I'm telling absolute truth. Yeah. And let's be honest to you get by with a little bit success you buy. Yes. People all the time. Absolutely. And as as I good back scratch. It starts to be detrimental to what you're producing. Everybody likes everything. I think it absolutely is that being said Dan, Shays loss record fantastic amazing front to the back. You guys records Stapleton. The traveler and from from a room one to the couple. I was like, yeah. But Casey's last record, and I was on that. And and I saw talking about it. 'cause I wanna be that guy was like once it got cold backed off. Yeah. You know, you don't wanna be the because I was screaming about it. When it first came out in the Nagai, cool, and I stopped screaming about it. I was like I don't want to be the tool. That's like everybody thinks I've just jumped on the right? My point is before I moved at some songs here is that you guys are just quality and quantity. And it's so rare. And that's why I was pumped it. You can well, thanks for having me. And thank you for saying that man, I really that is a great compliment. I'm gonna slam some number one zero quick from Old Dominion hotel key road. This win all these that I've play or you provide all the singles with the band, right? So far. Yeah. Yeah. Hotel key jam which my co host my best friend, Amy that that was her way early. And that's all we just released. She was like, I don't know anything about music, she doesn't. But she's like this is one of the guys ever heard. Written in the sand jam jams. No such thing as a broken heart. This one. Then dead that Paul chart. Song for another time snapback. Here we go break them letter by what we're doing here. Here's here's the on that I love right now in story about it woman band. First of all, this is my favorite song. Maybe you guys have ever put out. No. Thank you. It's one of my favorites to all the songs that I love this. This my probably my favorite ever put also. Because what music you find a song you relate to it? You start to go. Oh, like somebody feels like I feel that was called about music. It really is. Yeah. I mean like, I always grew up. Melody, I I think when I started and Nashville really taught me how to be a truly assists and connect with people, but that's like the holy grail. When when you have a song that you would love anyway, no matter what it says. But then the lyric really nails the sentiment that, you know, hits a lot of people down hits me. Yeah. I'm saying, and I'm like that. But that one hits me. And so have you heard Matt Ramsey story about messaging about the song? Yes. Such do. She's I think he didn't get my joke. Oh, no. He was like Bobby said, I should give Brad sound like oh, give them raise. Give me a raise too. I thought it was funny that like Matt was the boss that was paying us. Okay. Look. Okay. No. He got it. Like, you were saying eight didn't seem like he got it. And I felt like the biggest tool I said, I sent him a message because I follow you on Instagram. And and so I was listening to. Because you don't make a playlist. Listen looks like fifteen dollars. Currently switch it out. Like, you're on fly, you do whatever. And I'm listening to it. And I hit him up say who singing harmonies on this all and he says, Matt. Brad Brad Jin Frank somebody sound like gamy, right? Yeah. I know. So I go as a man they say the crap out the Tommy's, give them a raise just an expression, literally, just an expression. Like, hey, the guy saying homage rarely gets any credit like Tele that really good. And he goes, well, we don't really we're all paid the same. And he said it's so dryly, and I was like, I don't think the king Saul replied back, and I said, okay, I'll tell you what off of you get a raise. And it goes, that's really not how it works, man. You know, we're built get down. Yeah. I like he thinks on the biggest tool he thinks, I think you guys need money and funny. It was just because on our end, we knew you were kidding. And we all laughed about it. But it's funny on your end, you think that he thought you Vegas because I thought Matt thinks I'm saying everybody in the band needs a raise. That's funny anyway, that's my favorite song. And I like, and I wanted songs I used to plan my show that was not a single with stars in the city with a little big town. Oh, yeah. Jan to thank you. As I do that. That's what we sound like live sometimes. So you're the studio today you guys to work. Yeah. What's happened with you? We're very close. I mean, we almost got record three done today. I think we got everything done. There was one song. We were still wrestling with for about five hours. But a very close with five guys. And I'm assuming is that it's a five-way partnership. Yeah. It is. Yeah. It is. That's a lot. Is that a vote? Does it ever go to the democracy? You know, it's a discussion, you know, and everybody kind of has their area of expertise. You know, we've known each other for so long. I mean, you kinda know who, you know, if somebody has a strong opinion, and that seems to be their area, you know, will sat kind of defer, but everybody has an opinion. And usually will agree are musical minds are pretty on the same page, but when we disagree. We just kinda talk it out, you know, and then you'll settle on an answer very rarely is it like where two guys are really had to head. And and and just won't let it go. And then at that point, we will kinda go. Well, what's what's the consents? Sus here. What is everybody was everybody think? And so I mean, it's like being married to Ford it from people. I mean, you do have to sometimes fight for what you want. But then also realize you're one of five you five have known each other like who knew each other the longest. Yeah. It's kind of combat dynamic here. It's it's interesting because we get asked that a lot, and we usually have like thirty seconds to give tidy answer. But it's it's a little longer. I think wit in Matthew with was drums with the German and Matthew lead singer. They went to the middle school together. They were in the the group in the same area. And so they knew each other. I think technically the longest, but then in college they all went to college somewhere in Virginia, including Brad who was from Connecticut. He went to school in Virginia as well. So they all kind of knew each other in college actually wit, and Jeff the bass player played in a band together in college, and they would play shows with Brad's band sometimes and Matt was kind of playing in the same circuit. So they had a history before any of us moved to Nashville, but then about sixteen years ago, I moved to Nashville and Matt had just moved there recently. And he's one of the first people I met we met on stage at a writers round. So we kind of star. Pid writing a long time ago. I think in Nashville terms as far as being co raiders and collaborating think we've probably done the Nashville songwriting thing the longest, but what was the idea for you? When you moved to town. You know, what I wanted to move to be an artist. Like, I think a lot of people do when they move here. A lot of songwriters and up just being songwriters, which is fine. But I moved here. I want to get a record deal and everything. So I was sort of going after it that way, but then got a publishing deal, and you know, he sorta hit a wall a little bit. Sometimes when you're going for the artist thing, you realize how much competition there is. And and you know, and then I loved songwriting. I love the artists on writing and started pitching songs and realizing that that was a possibility too. So at some point I really didn't think any of this Old Dominion or artists things going to happen. I sort of set it aside and went, you know, I wanna be a songwriter. And that's that's a great life to have. So when you come and you want be a an artist was it a so we'd solo artists form. Banned. Yeah. I wanna be a solo artist. So yeah, I was writing songs and just you know, trying to get a publishing deal, but really what the goal of trying to get signed. And how long did you kinda run that down? I'd say it's hard to really pin it down because I was still playing shows around town with that idea. I'd say about five years in I moved here in fall two thousand three at say within about four or five years. I was pretty much gone. Yeah. I'm not really going for that anymore. Did it go from not going for that anymore? Right into Oche do this band or was there like a brief period where you're just like I'm of ES longer 'cause I'm thinking good at it was a good stretch where I was just going to be a songwriter. I mean, even you know, Matt, and I had been writing songs, and you know, sort of going after it and Matt was trying to do his artist thing too. But we had been writing songs for a long time. And I'd say probably a good. I don't know. It's hard to do. The math. Exactly. But I'd say good for year stretch where we were just trying to get cuts. You know, we were both still playing writers nights and plain out. And sometimes I jump up with his band, you know, kind of that deal, but we were really just kind of resigned to being songwriters and trying to get cuts. So yeah, there was a good stretch where I'd never really foresaw having a record DO doing what we're doing right now. What's that first conversation or a psych? Hey, shall we try something? Because I you're writing songs I'm getting all right at it. Yeah. Yeah. You have a little success. Yeah. But didn't it? But it kill back to artists route like it's sex starting over because it's a grind it really was. It's so weird because with us it was a little different. It was pretty non-conventional because we started jamming together, you know, Matt was already playing with Whitney Jeff who had moved to town by that point. And Brad was the last enter, but you know, they were playing shows as you know, Matt Rams. Basically. And he was just doing it to showcase songs, and I would jump up every once in a while, and then started showing up frequently. And so I was like I'll just be in the band, and we were just doing it for some extra cash just to showcase on's. But it was really fun. We were all really close, and we enjoyed it. But I think the switch flip was when like we got a couple of cuts, and then we had a hit, you know, Craig Morgan we had a top fifteen which one it's called wake-up Levin. You. Yeah. Yeah. I mean that was an Old Dominion staple. We would close our shows with that. And then that got on the radio, and then say you do for Bentley. He cut that. And it was like, yeah. And we started to go like, okay. Well, we have hits. We know. We're writing hits these are hits. And we you know, we had a sound. And we started go bands pretty good. I still didn't think this was going to happen. I still thought it was a pipe dream. But, but then just people started talking, you know, like, we'll these guys have hits the band is really good people started to come watch us. And I remember I remember talking to Matt one day and just we had we weren't really seriously considering it, but I I remember one conversation where we started talking about wake-up Levin new, and this is before it really was a hypocrite Morgan. But we were like that be cool. If we played it live we used to have this little alarm clock that that started the song, maybe kinda cheesy. But without it was cool to time. And we started going. Because if we're playing like an arena, and it was counting down to the show beginning, and it was like this alarm clock. But when it hit like zero seconds to the show like alarm clock started go off, and I started envisioning us playing it live to a crowd. And I think for me that was the first time I went. Yeah. The hardest thing would be pretty cool to be out there and actually be delivering it to the fans. It was like the first time the spark up, and again where I started to even consider it. Because at that point. I had resigned myself to living in Nashville writing songs, it's funny. You talk about how you know, you guys had written some hits reply because that's how you were first told to me like it's much songwriters at a really good. Song writers have like formed a band like that was the word that gets to me three layers yet. Right. It's like, hey, did you hear these guys that I put out was like a very first ball has been out. I mean, the first one that really hit was a break up with them. But. Yeah. There was one before that what was the one before that do you? Remember the one they put out a little bit. There was a couple on XM. Alright. So that we test fired a couple the first one because we couldn't get arrested. We couldn't get a record deal. And you know, they agreed to play something that we put out one called dirt on a road. I don't know that one. Yeah. And then we put out one called shut me up, which is a very rock and kind of song. And that was actually we were trying to put that out to radio we had a little independent we were trying to do independently. And we were going to radio with shut me up. But then some station started playing break up with them. I guess that'd be the first one we play too. Yeah. Wouldn't station started just jumping on breaking break up with them before we even trying to promote it we went. Okay. We have a thing. Here we need to switch gears. Was there any sort of a couple Abel's going? Hey, we'd like to have you know, I like to have you was it ever know. No more Old Dominion. I mean, we actually it got to a point where I mean, you know, how hard it is to make it in this town and hard to get a record deal. So it's not like, I the whole time was going. Why won't anybody sign us? But you know, we we went into this pretty mature. And we had been around a while. So we understood heart it was. But there did hit this certain point where I'm going. Our band is really good, you know, and we've written hits for other people. We obviously know how to write hits. And we had some stuff already recorded that we felt sounded really good. And you know, then radio started a some stuff, and it really everything was taking off. And it seemed like, you know, and then we signed with management. We got the Kenny Chesney tour before we even had a record deal. And so we're going man we have this major tour. We have songs on the radio we've written hits for other people. Like, why won't anybody sign of? I could not understand. And I started to just feel like it's never going to happen. Why do you think that people wouldn't sign you? I think we will little bit older. You know? I mean, we were all in our thirties and. You know? I don't think we were old. But I think they were just maybe had a perception that we were just songwriters. And I think that's a fair perception. Yeah, I mean, but that's how you are pitched around to. And I can understand that you know, we were a little bit older, and we had that perception of just being song writers. And you know, I mean, honestly, like were, you know, the songs around the radio now, and in we're sort of used to it, but back then it did sound a little different. I think and you know, I don't know that it was down the middle country. So, you know, I think there's always a lot of reasons why it's hard to get signed, you know, and it just takes wedging that door open with one song break up the break up with them. Did that for us? You know, there was no break up with them. We might not have gotten another swing at it. You know, what's cool is your sixty three now, and you're still making. I can still walk to do the commercial real quick. It's a situation. No one wants to experience during taxis.

It was that one that was another one where I hadn't had any hits. I had the Craigmore one on the radio. And I remember we were out this one that was a me and brandy clarkin Shane McNally wrote better too and Shane produce the demo. I mean, this is before any of us. I mean, Shane I think at that point head on number one. And he was starting to get a lot of attention. But. Shane would produce a lot of the demos. And actually Casey must graves saying that demo for us. I was before she had record dealer or anything. And I remember when he sent me the demo like, oh my God. Like, we're gonna have a hit for sure. And then we still pitch that around all around town and getting couldn't get cut was it as intense the demo as intense as the track ended up being produced from the beginning of activity because its it hits. Oh, yeah. Yeah. When he sent me the demo. It was very I mean, obviously, they you know, their production is bigger major label production. But the demo is crazy. I remember Shane Senate to me. I was out of town. And he sent me the demo and his comment to me was he said, I said, how's it? How's it the checks? He said this track is going to fuck you up. I don't know if I could say you can't. International waters. Do whatever you want. I played it it sounded so different. It's funny. Now looking at it through the lens of today because it sounded so crazy different than anything else. When he. Sent me the demo, and yeah, it was. And I remember thinking like how this is going to be the biggest Miranda head pitching maranda carry on the road. And then when the bam Perry wanted to cut it, you know, we were like all of their newer band. And it actually ended up being the best thing that could happen. Because when you have that song that helps really break a new artist, then it becomes like, a staple for them. So I mean like it's already started up here. It is strong. I mean, I think about how just intense assault with the banjo or whatever that is. Yeah. They did such a great job on cases. Yeah. That's funny. Do you still have that somewhere like in a phone somewhere? Oh, yeah. That's a cool thing for like ten years from now. I know I played because my kids are big casing rescues fans to my daughter. She seven she asked me to play every song. I ever play me. Whatever songs you have. And she loves Casey. And I was like, you know, what I have. And I played it for she her mind was blown five four four kids. My co host. If you don't listen to the radio show, my coast, Amy, my best friend. She wasn't. We were on the air one day and we're playing this game. And I was like, okay, I'll read you all the people in the band, you tell me the band is. And I was reading all you guys. I'd done like, Freddie. Mercury. Like third eye blind everyone, and I read all you guys names. She goes up Nordia, Amy they've been in the studio like eight times and friendly. I she's like, I have no idea. And so as no that's that's Old Dominion, and she was like, oh, I don't I got to see them. I don't know their names name is the kindest person ever. A little fluffy. Sometimes. A little bit. But I like great. And so she said she text me. She goes, I'm on a flight driver. From Old Dominion, and he just text me. We're going to Disneyland maybe at the same time. And he just takes me. And then resigned his name again. So I would know it was him. So although that's pretty funny. Yeah. She she felt pretty bad about that. Oh, it was funny. I never remember people's names either. So I certainly don't take offense. But I didn't pass up the opportunity to rub it on Twitter. So and then she goes, hey, we hung out with Trevor in this. What you said about your kids were the most well behaved kids, and you have four kids. I have four kids have. No, I'm not gonna behave like that. Well, they must have been having an on day. How how old's your oldest fourteen? She'll be fifteen this some have fourteen year old kid, my son just turned thirteen while we were out their holy crap and held your youngest of five anymore coming. No you done officially you. Sure. I'm hope it took. How how reason is is that. Was two years ago that painful or no it wasn't too bad. Did you do like the local anesthetic or do you just go give it to me raw can sit here and take it give it to me. Give me a bullet. I'll bite it west. Yeah. I mean, I'm sure the I think there was a local shot there that that helped. But no as long as you have definitely have to do what they say they say like don't get up. Don't try to do anything. You're gonna feel one hundred percent and feel like oh, I could go for a run. But they're like don't be fooled. How long you take off whenever you get a couple of days just ice sit there and a with some ice added. Okay. So I don't have any kids. Right. And at I've had a dog in fifteen years ahead. This dog loved him so much right? And he was my best friend, but my dog best friend, and he still had nuts at age eleven and and you'd have to cut your nuts off. Right. You're stepping nuts. Right. Yeah. Yeah. There still and they were like you got you got dogs nuts. He's been sick twice. It was the hardest thing ever had to do. It wasn't even my nuts and had to sniff them is tough. And it's not really the same. But a heart. It's the same. Yeah. That seems like something you got to do early other. Visit eleven it wasn't fair to him. He's like seven years. Dogs quickly. Forget though, he's fine. I met a girl. William Michael Morgan. This is the number one. You it with Sam hunt and shea mackinaw, right? Cross the street you guys wrote this because Sam cut it did you cut up with Sam in mind. And then he ended up not putting it on the record. No. I mean, this was before same had a record deal. So. I mean in much the same way a lot of our songs ended up. We we don't necessarily right with ourselves in mind. And I think with Sam at that time, we didn't know what Sam was going to sound like, you know, we weren't necessarily going. Oh, does this sound like you? I mean when you're in the beginning stages. He hadn't even signed a deal. He hadn't even cut anything in. You don't really have a direction you just trying to write a cool song. So it definitely sounded different. I think when you guys heard William Michael Morgan, do it we like holy crap that went traditional country quick. Yeah. Yeah. I remember Scott Hendricks produced it. He was so excited. And he's like I want you guys to come here. This it's not gonna sound like your demo at all. But we love it. And we want you to come here. And yeah, I was blown away. I couldn't believe how different it was. But how great it sounded? It was cool because I think that's the coolest thing when you can write a song that you could produce any different way. And it's still a great song at its core. So it was pretty cool to hear that traditional and still love it. I sank RIA from Blake Shelton. Josh Osborne and Shane Josh JT harden. Oh is that right? Josh here. J JT. I don't think I don't think I know should have them in areas. A riot. Is he yes JT? We haven't had them in yet. So you wrote this this actually which was. You know, it's weird. When a song flies up chart, right because it's fun. To have a song that goes to number one. I bet right. Yeah. Yeah. It's pretty fun. It's right. It's cool thing and you like to get a Blake or Luke cutter. Now dean cut all but they fly up the chart they do. And it's like, you're they come. And there they go like you like to get them. You're happy you got them. But is there a part of you go that such a good song? Just a part of you most of these not you just want the song to be saying Blake. That's awesome goes man. It's going to be a number one is gonna be the chart before you can really like pay your bills. I I don't think. No, no. Because I've had them die. You know? I've definitely had songs that I thought were sure things and and then they die. So for me. I just go just keep going goes fast. As you want to be a big hit with that too. I think that was a three week number one. And you know, it's still gets played a lot. So if that's the case, and it's going that quickly than than you hope. It's just a big one that continues to get play because guys like Blake Shelton. You know, they're going to they have what thirty forty singles that are going to be played for years. So you hope that. Maybe you have one of those ones that gets played for years that first parody that when we were just doing parodies my band raging. It's instead of sangria, we did tortilla. I remember do you remember that? We'll get for us. We have pierced the consciousness of the writers that we still play that. Sometimes I I'll play during comedy shows. No, nice talk. Because that's because at this point. Now, I'll do stand up, and I'll we still play some band shows. And I think we were playing full banjos on some festivals. You guys we plan. You gotta play right after us. And we'd see we coming off. And you guys would be going. I'll be like what up. I five we suck. Sorry. Have a good show. But now we'll play that. Sometimes like stand up because we apply sangria or buy me a goat. We don't really do. We don't do a lot of parodies now but to good for him. Now, we're now. Talking about that was the first one we ever did. It was Sonetti notice. Hey, this is really good. You could tortilla. And he's like, I said you Mexican I really can't I can't write all of it as as a white guy. So that was the first parody. Yeah. It was the first one. Yeah. It was it's kind what launch the whole thing here. Let me see here right now on the chart you have one that got away from Michael rates and top five. Matt Matt and Jesse Frazier and Josh Osborne. So you're right. Any songs, and you go it's good. It's not good enough for us to keep is that. What is that? What it's lying. No, not really. No, it's because this one it was funny. Our manager will he was like you're not gonna cut the song. He wanted us to. And we like this one you have some we have some good sense. Now of what is a hit or is not a hit. So it wasn't whether we thought it was a good song or whether it's a hit. But it's weird science of trying to figure out what the record in that record. You know, and it's like it can come down to so many different things. Do we already have a song in this vein or or whatever? But sometimes we just try to play it. And it either does or doesn't sound like us. And I don't know. There's no definition for that is just there's just a gut feeling. So a lot of songs we try out. And we did we definitely considered this one pretty strongly, but. You know, we didn't do it. And it wasn't because we didn't like it. We immediately started a pitch because we did feel like it was a hit is. I look at this list here. One two three four five six seven eight ten. I see I don't know if this is an accurate number ten number ones. Total is that about right? I think so so. When you write these songs that go numb. I just wonder what it's like this dynamic with the band. And it's like if everybody's writing songs, and obviously you want your song to get put on the record. Because again, I keep the lights on the house. Right. You got nineteen kids feed. Like does that dynamic ever get a little bit dicey? Does it ever go to vote where it's like he's got this song? It's feels the same as this song. Yeah. I don't think it really has come down to that. Yet. Because ultimately, whatever the best song is best for the ban. Now if your song like if it's close don't you would that's the hard part. Now. I don't see I might be the opposite. I might be inclined to to not vote for my song. You know? But, you know, y'all get a sense. I mean, it's it's a five opinion kind of thing democracy. So I do feel like sometimes if say if there's two songs that it's it's such a tie in there, so close, and maybe, you know, a few of us wrote the one where maybe only one of us wrote the other one maybe it could come down to that tiebreaker where we go, look, this is an absolute tie. The Tigers to the fact that more of us wrote this one I think it hasn't come down to that yet. But I I could see it coming down to that. But at some point, you just got set, it aside and go, you know, if this is what everybody feels like is the best move for us. Then that's got to be the best move. So is there anyone in the band that doesn't write as much like the you know, what you guys are the real songwriters. I'm just gonna play my and be onstage rockstar. Yeah. I mean, Well, Matt, and Brad, and I do most of the writing, you know, I mean, we've been writing in Nashville for years with publishing deals and really doing the Nashville songwriting thing, you know. So, you know, Jeff in wit also. Right. You know, they played in bands for years and played original stuff. And you know, what they do is definitely a big part of the writing a part of the sound. But yeah, I mean in the conventional national songwriting way. Yeah. It's it's mostly Matthew. And Brad, and I I would think as someone who try again, I just love the the dynamics of group because I'm gonna group myself. Right. My morning shows a group I have eight personalities. I mean, I'm the boss, but still like Amy matters sometimes more than mine does because she if she's not good. I'm not good, you know, lunchbox, and then have a band have all these different like groups where the the the group dynamic really does affect. What if like what why are why are you not the lead singer like when was that a conversation? I'm not as good. Well, no, I mean, first of all I mean, Brad is a great singer. But I think Matt is one of the best singers. I know I just think he's got a lot of character to his voice. And he just got a great voice. And that no that was never in question. I think I was a fan of met before I ever thought about being in the band. You know, even when we wrote together he was playing playing out somewhere. I'd I'd go out them pill off they'll be like, I got this boys. I don't really I know Brad does. I mean Brad saying one on the last record. I think there's a part of Brad that would love to put out his own record. Or maybe sing more which I would be all in favor of. I Brad is gracing the eagles. They all say, right. Yeah. Most of them all the Google. Does hate it when their basis saying though, I don't know if you ever listened to go udalls he did to track. It'd be like Johnny Resnick sing the songs. Two tracks throw bone of the basis. And I mean, it was weird. I I didn't know that. Actually, I knew like the recent like weezer records, you know, they'd have hate that too. 'cause I'm a huge. Eliezer fan because once you've already established like, hey, this guy is the sound of the band. I think it's harder. That was the thing with Brad last album. Like, I was glad he got one in. I thought like man, it would be cool if we had two or three, you know, to stab shit early because once you don't establish it early, then it's not going to sound like your band, but I do love how the eagles, you know, had Glenn and Don Henley, and even some of the other guys saying one. Yeah. Yeah. And then, you know, like, obviously, the Beatles. I do love that when there's versatility. But it's a little bit harder to do. And today's musical climate. I guess I mean people have short attention span. They're not gonna realize it's Old Dominion if it's not massing. So and and I agree with what you're saying. But also if someone gets sick someone can can cover pretty easily. Yeah. And do the songs or out of the band. Yeah. Like the bare naked, ladies, right? Kicked out the singer, Steven he's not even in the band anymore. They got together for the khanate. I'm a big negative fan. They got together for the Canadian hall of fame, but kicked him out years ago. So Ed the guy who does the wrapping who can also saying is now the full singer. But because he thinks much early. It's not that weird. Yeah. Because now you just go and like the drummer sings a little bit always it's banned. Yeah. If he can do that, man. I drive is to work in marina, you may jobs before. Yes. Would you do? Oh, man. Well, the one that I had most recently I worked at best buy here in cool springs doing for like eight years home theater for eight years. I think it was seven or eight years down here. Yeah. Even through like, two publishing deals. I still had my job. They're doing just sold TV surround sound systems. Yeah. I used to work out. The reason I talk about the marina is used to drive to the marina every day when I was filling up boats and fixing boats and driving around pontoons. And that song it's been that that song reminds of driving to the to the marina. By the way. Let me mention you have Kelsey song. I hate love songs. Yes. This. With Kelsey and Shane McNally. Together, we do. Well, he used to. We both kind of don't see each other as much, but yeah, I mean, the funny thing people, you know, you think of like, Shane McNally or Josh Osborne. These guys like, oh these big hit songwriters. But when we started out, you know, the ban we have the band are, you know, as part of our story, but really the songwriting arc, you know. Matthew, and I and Shane and Josh and Matt Jenkins brandy Clark. We didn't have anything going on back then. So I mean, we used to write with each other all the time and just had this kind of sound with each other. So I mean, we've written hundreds of songs probably together. Yeah. It's funny to see whenever they mix you guys. Brothers Osborne up. Oh, yeah. First of all, you don't even look the same. There's really nothing close in brothers Osborne. I guess there are two words. I don't know. What do you say? I've tried to figure it out to to. What do you think? It is. I don't know because our two guys in that band. I guess I would understand if it were like an F GL thing where it's another duo or a Dannon Shane or mixing up to do. Oh, yeah. I mean, they're taller. They sound different. There's really not. I love it though, it now it's funny. But if you guys have both kind of made a name for yourself in different ways, you're both successes. It's it is really funny thing because it's happened many times. But I don't know why they keep making you guys up. I really don't know likes. Now. Like, sometimes I'm like do those people really mix us up or they descend on the joke now. But yeah, that's funny. Does the old go have you played at school? They'll school Old Dominion. Yeah. We played there. I think last summer was at a thing or no. Do they care? I don't I can't remember I don't feel like they hyped it up too much as Old Dominion at Oldham. I think there was a little bit element of that. But I don't know. Was it weird to have the name? Was there any legal thing? You can't call yourself Old Dominion. Yeah. Actually, we almost weren't called old the menu of that story. Well, so early on, you know, it's so hard to pick a band name. You know, it's like the worst thing you can possibly have to do because. You're always self-conscious, you know, everybody's gonna rip onion shootdown anything. Stupid everything that definitely. So we had to sit there and go. Okay. Well, we're not going to be named Matt Ramsey or whatever let's figure out a banning. We're ben. And so it we tried so hard and we finally settled on Old Dominion Matt said that one days like the only thing I could think of that's related to Virginia that has been taken Old Dominion. We're like what's wrong with that? So we were Old Dominion for like, maybe two years and started to get some steam, you know, we had some things going. We had already put out a couple of songs and tunes. And then that we've talking to our attorney, and he's like man, I'm just really concerned about the legalities of this. You know, you got the peanut company, and you got the trucking company, and you got the university, and and the beer, and so man, we we actually got to the point where we were sitting at a bar Nashville trying to come up with a new name in pretty much having a band fight. And then I Finally I dunno. I can be stubborn sometimes. But I was like, you know, at this is stupid. I'm like we can be called the. Dominion, and will know our Turney says we could get sued. And I said that doesn't make any sense to me. I'm like. There is there is a university. There is a peanut company. They're they're not suing each other. There are already more multiple dominions. And so I'm like, I'm not doing this. I'm gonna call the attorney and our Turney was like, man. I don't know. He said, I really you're probably right. Except the university is the one I'm afraid of. Because they have a marching band. They have merchandise that they sell. So I was like, okay. Well, I'm gonna get home assembly. So I sat there all day and track down somebody at the university and just asked people until I got to the right person. And I said, hey, we're this ban. We've been operating under this name. We already have songs out. You know is this an issue, and they said no as long as you don't use our logo. We're not worried about it. You're good. And so I took it back to the guys, and I'm like as satisfy everybody, and they're like, okay. I guess we're still Old Dominion you got into writing. Yeah. That's that's the play get it in writing. So it was all out of like futility of being able to come up with a new name your any of the names you guys talked about. I mean, I do know they were awful. But man, I can't remember I do remember playing the wild horse one time when we were in limbo. And we were like, let's just let's just tell her. We're Friday girl. The girl would announce us when we play the wild horse as and she you know, she'd go what are you guys called? Sometimes we just be Matt Ramsey or whatever and one time she was like, how do you want me to announce you Matt was like Friday eagle? Ladies and gentlemen, fried eagle. Pretty funny. Video of you guys playing was it the wild horse and there's like one couple dancing. Oh, yeah. Yeah. That was I couldn't believe Matt still had that on his computer. It was just an I mean that in the most sincere way it was here. You are. You've got all these hits his band. You got all these hits his writers. And you're playing to no one, right? And there's an old couple that are looks like two stepping to that summer. Join from memory. Yeah. That's that's summer. And it was a, hey, look, even we'd like struggled our brains out, and nobody would come to our show and look at us now. And it wasn't look at us. Now like look at us now. But it was like freaking look at us. Now like, we can do this. You guys can do this. Yeah. I was inspired by the video. I thought that was pretty cool post. It was really cool. I mean that like you said that was that was before any of the hits or anything right eagle days fried eagled as web might have been the night. We've announced ourselves fried ego. I was watching speaking bad names. I was watching that motley Crue it's a bio pic on Netflix. Have you seen reviews for it? I've heard about it. But I haven't seen. It's kind of a disaster. But you almost have to watch it like, I'm such a music nerd like give me any sort of biography or a bio pic, I'll watch I'll just consume us it, and I'm like, I'm gonna watch this thing, and there's a whole scene where they're going over their name crew. And I guess one of their names before it was motley Crue was X like X mass like Xmas with pentagram. Oh my God. But that was really one of their names. And I was thinking when I was watching that I was like ninety nine point nine hundred abandoned are so stupid. We disagree them because they get hit. And they're said someone right over the over time. I remember Florida Georgia line when I'm like that's the dumbest name ever. And now, it's just their name. It's just part of. It's just words that make sense to us. Do remember tire fire that was one of them throughout tire fire? This is called tire. Fire fire. Yeah. And you sit there and go. This is a terrible terrible. Name. Dirty gross grimy like some backyard. You are grimy. Yeah. Exactly, dirty and grimy. So talk to me about this whole new record that you guys have do you guys play on the record? We do which is cool because that doesn't happen. A lot in town. It doesn't it's very rare. And a think it's part of what makes us, you know, people a lot of times. We'll tell us. Oh, you guys sound like you sound like Old Dominion, I think partly because we play, you know, we it's five and then this time like Dave Cohen has played keys and come in and done some different things. So he's he's a big part of it too. But Oma aside from Dave every note, and every choice, everything is, you know, uh playing and Shane producing and directing. So I think for we always say for better or worse. You know, it makes it sound like us because you know, we have limitations were not all studio level people. But you know, like. I think that gives us a fingerprint. Yeah. I think it's cool and for those that are familiar a lot. I'll even say most records even with bans, they'll bring in specifically trained session players that their life is actually playing these parts are the keys or but I was like when when bands will use their own peoples much possible. Yeah, I do too. Because you know, if you use all the same guys that everyone is using sometimes those tricks start the sound all the same you ever. See the beach boys stuff what they used to do. I've heard some of the behind the scenes to Brian Wilson. He would stay back and they'll get the wrecking crew record play all the songs, and they would go out and tour and Brian Wilson stays back in the studio, and you know, mad genius is making everything and sometimes between play on the records. They come in and saying, but the records are pretty much done. They they make all the money touring. Brian Wilson's in with all the wrecking crew record documentary net flicks. I have not seen that so good. There's a there's another one have you ever seen standing standing in the shadows of Motown? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I've watched I think it's a similar thing. Right. Have. Yes. Have you have you seen? But I haven't seen. Hardly anything gives your dad before kid. I just never watch anything like, well, I didn't have a girlfriend. So I'm watching everything. Watch next. There's one that's about guitar players in band famous guitar players that maybe recognize, but and then it just goes through their stories, and it's pretty cool. There's not a background singer one where it's like it's like two feet from stardom or something which is fantastic about that one. It's so good because it's like they're so close, and it's all these humongous acts their backgrounds singing for Michael Jackson and people like that like Sheryl Crowe one of the most famous stories was a legit, Michael Jackson background singer. Yeah. Which is crazy. So anyway. Do you practice still my instrument? Yeah. I mean, I I every day pretty much practice. Well, not every day. But when we're on the road. I mean, we're playing the show. You know, we're doing soundcheck. I mean, we with those songs, I guess you're playing songs you've played over and over. But I guess it keeps your skills up to some level. But you know, I'm also not like a lead guitar player. I'm going to sit there and practice my scales. I think for me, I'm more of a song Burson. I think ultimately the the biggest thing I contribute to the band is the songwriting aspect. So I'm always practicing that you know, I think every day which favorite song. You've you've written that we would know that has made the light of day. Man. It's so hard. Well, I don't know if this is the light of day necessarily wasn't a single, but there's a song on keep their venom. A wrote called the comeback to me that are at Shane. And brandy Clark one of my favorite songs. I've ever liked to hear a little bit of this on here. It's your favorite, you know, what my favorite. This jam here. Yeah. Just the lyric as I think one of the best lyrics record fuse. If that you get draw fair Swailes, what's the one song of yours that you thought would never really amount to. That's a weird question because you know, you didn't right on right on to be discarded. Right. But you're right. And you go, no, let's just put it out there. And then all of a sudden, it's like bam. Well, I loved the song. So it's not because I didn't like the song. But I met a girl really. You know, it was Willie Mike mar William Mike Morgan was new artist. He just signed a record deal. And so a lot of those come along where there's this new artists we're going to try to cut your song on them. And and you go, you know, you're not jumping up and down or anything. He just think that's a cool thing. So for a new artist to come out with a song like that? And then it'd be on the chart for a year and go all the way to number one that one I definitely didn't see that coming which one of these dry and go yet that's a hit. Better to was one took a while for it to happen after I wrote it, but yeah. Yeah. That was definitely one. Let me think what else, you know. I would say song for another time. I felt like when we wrote that when we were almost we actually we were done with the album, and then we wrote that and we we sound checked it in a stadium one day. And I was like this is a hit this this feels like a big song. So we went back in and recorded it just for that album. And it's all we've never heard of that you thought this is going to be jam and it wasn't. So many. Actually, a lot of them. You think that and then you go back, and listen, you're like, oh, yeah. It wasn't as good as I thought. But. One of those tire fire songs, we have a couple I will tell you. I go down the rabbit hole. Sometimes in my items with all my demos, and work tapes. And sometimes pull up the worst people go, you guys are such great. You every song? Right is great. And it's like, no, it's not. I mean, like we'll pull them up on the bus sometimes and crackup about how bad some of the songs we've written are they've grown up. Also, very hard question because I loved everything, but in high school, I was a big faith. No more fan got into the F eight in the more nirvana. Oh, totally. But it's funny. I love stuff like that. But then I would love like the super sappy like slow seventies ballads to faith. No, more weezer big weezer fan of college. Are you still a big weezer because I'm still a big how old are you right now forty four. Okay. So generally same at thirty eight I was I was I wear my have clerk frames now, but I wear my glasses because of rivers Cuomo, and I thought, but we're rivers and buddy, Holly. I thought if those two nerds can be cool like it gave me confidence to be cool like I loved wizard that much and I still have weezer. Do you still have we do actually I went? I went through a phase there for a while where I didn't really check out anything new they were doing, but then a couple years ago. I kinda got back in you know, you look at a band like that and go used to just hang on every album, wait until it came, you know. So I'm like, I haven't heard any of these albums and actually like Pacific daydream is like I listened to it. And that's. One. I'll listen to like all the way through like, it's one of my favorite weezer albums, and it was not too long ago. They put that out and part of the reason is we don't hang on albums at all anymore. Right. Which is why two are so good. I I was saying on the other day. And when I talk on the radio, I imagine nobody. Here's what I say. I have to or never say anything. So I have to imagine it doesn't get out talking to my friends or would just cover everything. I say, right. And I was talking about you guys. I was like, you know, what think my new favorite band on my top three. Pound for pound all your songs are good. Like, I don't know that you have to if tomorrow never comes in my heart yet. But there have been enough time yet. Well, although women band is the jam right now. It's it's in my top ten, but I think he has. Yeah. Like, I'm a big fan. I really am. Really? Really? Appreciate saying that as funny. We didn't know when we first came out. We were like, I don't think Bobby likes us. You know? I didn't not that. I didn't like you just didn't know. And I don't want to be false with anyone. I'm with you ever because I can't lie when I don't like something it's hard for me to you would never believe me. If I told you like something I can't remember if I lie. That's why don't why. Because I'm I'm I do this. I did show. I'll do stand up. I'm writing books if I lie just don't remember. Yeah. Because I will. I be great lion. That'd be fantastic li- all time. It helped me. I just can't remember. Yeah. And so I don't ever come in. And it was not. Like, I said, no, you know, I wasn't going to blind. Oh, totally. But now commit I'm like hall of fame put them in right now. Get. I love it. Yeah. I do when I hope you know, when I say that I'm from all sincerity like I mean, I feel I appreciate it that one man band. Well, listen can't wait for the record. Make an interesting story faith. No more did not expect that did you know, we all come from such diverse backgrounds. Hit a lot of every kind of music, and I just was a song person. That's why it's hard. When you ask that. I'm like, man. It's so hard for me to say because I was more. You know, my my parents didn't have a favorite band. There wasn't one thing we listen to. So I just was a station flipper. So I mean, it's like it's really hard to say what influence everything did. You know, I grew up in Detroit. So it was like we had Motown. We had great rap hip-hop we had rock as Detroit rock city. It was like I just love songs. And I think that's why I gravitated so much to songwriting, and you had Napster which was a big deal for us. It we were the first real group of people to be able to get anything everything not based on the region. We lived in based on what our parents had. Collections based on what the the record store the CD store had, and you know, again based on where you were they'd stock up on certain things we had frigging Napster where you would go. I think I'll take every song s enter a thing. Go to sleep totally every song. And you just hit play. I discovered so much music that way. Yeah. Me too. I actually found an old. I was cleaning something out. And I found an old burn CD that I'd made like fifteen twenty years ago. And I don't remember what it was labeled. But I'm like, oh my God. I used to just stolen from naps jazz stolen from NASCAR probably thirty songs on there appreciated this. It's been a good talk. Our with you. You know, t- Rosen forty one on Instagram why forty one by the way was my hockey number in college. So it's always been played hockey in college. I did that's a whole other. If I do this Merican idol do this American idol hit on on tonight Santos talk about hockey. Yeah. Yeah. We'll come back right there.

"Sometimes the best way to baffle them is to make moves that have no purpose or even seem to work against you. Remember that Sansa when you come to play the game. Welcome to the wife of podcast. The original egging Lebron's LCD. Podcast originally founded in two thousand ten state champs in a trump. We decided to rebrand when the game relaunched seconds a huge. Thank you goes out to fantasy flight games Dr Mark for this game and world we love and of course to my co hosts you. The list is pleased if you enjoy the show. Leave us a review on itunes or choice comment on facebook threads or even better support us on Adriaan. We love turning That kind of support back into the Union. This is season ten of the White Book. We go. We've been sitting on that one. I actually amazingly. Don't think we use that before so. I'm pretty happy to pull it out right now. And it says a lot since we play a game for a company that doesn't know task from its elbow. Whoa spicy bold move. I hear it even cut that internship on KYLE'S BEHALF. None whatsoever boy. Well that's that's as good an introduction as any. I suppose to the cast this week. I'm a will that was kyle and I swear. I tried to ask Sam. I wasn't available. It's important that you just four string coming in who actually you know. You are right there because I asked Sam. I Guess Bob has stripped wrote so yes would would have been no your third. Yeah yeah same would be second-string than and you would be that's a step higher up than you're less carpet age. I mean I think you should count that as a win. I was promoted to eighty percent. Time like yeah lies allies. We're GONNA see Bradshaw wins on this podcast. Tell you going to be great. Yeah I think the bold move. Just picking start tradition at this at this point who says the shows ever going to end? I mean we've already been going this long without anything really to talk about. Have you ever listened us? Yeah I think it would stop us from continuing to cast now. If you're in this world would talk into the abyss week after week. The rest of time is definitely Woodland's Aliens One day. What's that sound like an old will? And that's why the second cycle was the best cycle well into our afford seven part series on Qods. The no one's playing anymore because they're all dead. Call me. Kyle's a great mood. Yeah yeah well trying to find his happy place again. I know I hope not terribly. It still lost yeah man. I really hope that that cutting quote would help but not not so much a well I believe in will and I I believe in us. We're going to figure it out. Well at least if nothing else you get to spend some time. Them sewed reminiscing about the good old days. How's that back when I was a good player back wooden? Let's see when you still couldn't drive right in you. Start playing this game before you can drive. That is true. I I've I've been playing thrones longer than I've been driving I don't know which I'm better at. It depends on if he acts my wife or at. I've driven with you. You still can't drive hurtful Okay so awkwardly transitioning see Kyle rives was I transitioned. We will transition over to look review said way This is the things we do for love which is which which is I think they I think they think they're talking about themselves. And I think we all know Y- actually. Yeah the that scene in the books I mean. Obviously I'M GONNA pay Jamie in a good light because he's my favorite character. But once you make a deeper into the books it really does paint that scene between Himself and Sursee a much different light and yeah yeah see. I view that scene. And if we're putting things as pieces I think Jamie's F F G Who selfishly having sex with us from behind that we may not even be enjoying from the looks of that scene. And then I would say all the other. F- Fifty Franchises our brand like star. Wars Ivar happening here. Not Technically having killed Al Five Aria. They got yet now. The question is has already been putting cocoa and he's falling to his doom or is he about to south window and just doesn't know it yet. Yeah well I. I don't know as far as deciding whether l five R is or not No Alex Watkins the. Up Edit F G just did that AMA video which I admit I have not watched yet But I do gather the IT announced l five our worlds in Madrid next year So it's it's so weird. Maybe that I'm in such a cynical place with energy and Organiz playing such right. Now that I legitimately don't know whether I should read that as yet. You know the Games still doing well. It's going strong. Effigy sticking with it you know. They've got these big plans and they're stepping up and going to do a right or if it's like. Hey here's our blowout last bath. Wash the top cut happens. Oh by the way congrats on the last war. It'll gen ED. The way they've been they could go either way. I don't know maybe they'll make it part of the in flight video on the way home like look the seat in front of you. You're fucked. Here's some cut out champ. Cards from seasons past good luck wouldn't be wouldn't be the first time very similar things have happened or one after. I dead only. We have gone fucked by this game lot. Ju just yes okay. Just I'm right down time stamp by. We're back so yeah. I wonder who moving on back we were supposed to be talking about the pack and Yeah Yeah we are. Now get moving on. No one still in this community at this point is good for all this is that entails. You listen to this after a fresh break. Reopen that wound right. Yeah I got to that person that person. So let's let's let's hop in to the pack here. Let's let's run them down so this this is going to be weird partly because it's a. It's a much bigger pack than normal. We're still going to try to get through all of them these cards but also yeah. Yeah also. None of them are legal. out world's In the actual main event joust nor in the main site event Malay They're only available in the hand of the. Canine events can be worlds right. Oh my God like it's just. It's just a glitch off. It's just ridiculous who've been sitting around like rubbing their hands eagerly snidey whiplash the all show up and compare notes on. What dumb fucking idea that came up with a breaks the game and then they're all gonna go shit. How do these interact and via you? Know I just thought thinking about these side tournaments and I have. We seen like a full schedule. There's an is going to be a rookery event I can enter in Zach hosting it mushroom. Um that Donald Friday nights were staying at the Grand Hyatt coming over. Oh I gotta worlds going to worlds. I was making a joke about wanting to go to. Nah You're literally sharing a room with me. Why why do you think I'm so wary? It's not man. Yeah so it's GonNa be. It's GonNa be a weird review also because these are going to be legal for these events because it is frankly a across the board busted in standard second ad There are a handful of these cards that I think maybe or not. And we'll we'll get to that but a lot. A lot of this might just be US going low. That's insane here's a story about was insane previously and it still is because these are all reprints of infamous. Cards throughout thrones history. I'm not even going to say like these are famous like stellar interesting cool cards. No this this is a laundry list of the biggest offenders From the history the game minus about three cards. I can think of offhand that are not in here. I'm I'm actually a little bit surprised That the The immune to events non kneeling. Red Viper is not in here That one was the cause of a lot of problems. I'm all yeah I'm also really surprised to not see massing at twilight which was Bonkers house sees no it was. It was better than that. It was Neil. Your House card. Reveal the top three cards of your debt. That's right had them to your hand. The reason this matters is actually will get to part of this story later because due to a different card in this pack the C. C. G. Air had to institute a draw CAP So that you could only draw a maximum of three additional cards per turn and then immediately like seriously was like the next block right. After instituting that cap effigy says here by the way. Here's this incredibly efficient event. That doesn't draw cards and instead just puts them in your hand so it doesn't count well. Yeah we're that CAP. I mean otherwise. They would count. Yeah that's less good And yet in the last one that I'm really surprised is not in. Here is desperate measures a pet cart mind from the C. C. G. era that Self milled the top. I think it was five cards for your deck and then let you put one of those five into your hand so yeah I mean you can probably guess that. Let you do some weird stuff but I like that kind of thing. Yeah you do. Yeah thirty huge emissions. Like that that you're surprised. I mean there's just so many bus car it's so hard to think of the mall But I think a lot of the big hitters that if groans and shook heads the problem is like some of them when they can't they've already come back and second Ed and have been you know redesigned in a way that makes a little bit of sense like highlights include Like all the Maistre Tech and myriad and you'll be the highlights there where they were both of of busted in previous editions are in this one things. We never got that. I wish we did. I guess would be Others plots plots with cannot be saved aboard wipe affects We never got that. That would have been cool. Winters come was a was a plot man. Those those were the days actually wasn't a big fan of that particular pot. I I felt like it was too delayed to telegraphed compared to valor. But for anyone curious it couldn't be saved from but you also literally could play before turn three and lake have an effect that affect only went off after. Turn three so yeah against rushed ex. You need that reset earlier. I suppose spos- you do. Yeah all right. Well do we go ahead and jump in on cards then the actual card? I mean actual back. Yeah sure. Let's make this happen. A right I up we've got Barath. Ian Coop wants to lay the two BARATH IAN cards on us. I'm refusing to actually look at any of the cards. So hot takes over from the side of the Mir Zach. Then okay I got this do all right. I card back off. I got this go on. That's right okay is gonNA retort. I five costs house breath. You and loyal character ser. Davos see worth. He's a five strength TRICON. Night Traded Texas or Davos. Worth cannot be killed. Second Card is Mel Asandra favor. Non Unique has breath Ian attachment loyal cost for roller traded to terminal attachment Says Take Control of attached character forced interrupt. When the dominance phase ends sacrifice Sandra's favor cannot be cancelled. So Davos is like cute. But like Mala Sandra favors bonkers busted. Just Marzilli foods wins or pretty. Yeah yeah I mean not not? Just that if you've got there's no restriction in on the character that you take other than they need to be able to take attachments right Sir. You could taking your opponents. I don't know thirty strength Taiwan Lancaster or something And then just sacrifice it for something and I which honestly was probably the more common play firm In the in Ad I think Was to steal something juicy like attack with it and then sacrifice it yeah. The instant wins are also disgusting like this would just break Malay. If it was legal world man be so good. Yeah I mean this card seal. Hanley Kills Voltron index which are dumb so that means love it. Yeah Yeah I mean it really does if it really truly fully legal than any any of those big dudes you just take it you kill it and that's it direct and they can all by definition tickets at rice so exactly because you want to voltron up so good thinking of Gert. I have seen some some folks talking about this. Dobbin who's not really like understanding his presence. Because you know all admit as is and second Ed this Davos is probably like the most balanced card in this entire pack So I'll throw out here the historical story on this when CanNot be killed was first introduced in the C. C. G. Cheese like Oh four probably And it was. Let's say maybe not fully thought out in implications so When it first came out a cannot be killed. Did Not mean cannot be chosen to be killed So that meant wants. Your opponent landed one of these characters which there weren't many it was basically just Davos and then I think all three of their dragons at that point but once they were landed Your opponent just never got military claim against you for the rest of the game because you could still just choose a character that couldn't die Thankfully F of g quickly reversed course on that in an Faq up date and clarified. No no you cannot use them cannot is is absolute and it became became a whole thing but Barath Ian was by far the weakest house at the time Keep in mind. They were just the like Super Rush House. In in that time it was like Tyrel but without the money or the card draw right so not a lot to it So then they actually are routed the Davos so that he specifically could be chosen for claim even though he was cannot be killed so That there is kind of the historical kerfluffle. I think that Warranted is inclusion in this pack And His power level of course was much higher when as soon as he was landed. Military challenges didn't matter anymore so anglo-folks seems less now or back now. Tried to being able to choose a choose a thing. They can't is just stupid or really sexy pending on how you table. You're on. His cards is is math. Money's cards is Bob Bust dudes WANNA kill dudes and want you to be real sad about it. I mean luckily we have nothing in the current game. That makes you lease your dude tonight. Get Salty so really a nice change of. Yeah now just throwing that out there. Character Steel Steel. In general I think is just one of the most feel bad themes were like card effects mechanics in never put to really busted character steal cars in one pack. Yea Too bad. They didn't just make that a big theme of one faction of the game. People people throw around the term in p. e. and stuff about like particular decks of play styles and stuff but if there is any one mechanic the just makes people feel really bad when it happens. It's character steel right like just stuff you've invested in that you were building a game plan around like is gone now and your opponent is using that plan against you. It just never feels good. I would personally stay way far away from it or make it very limited. And instead IT'S PRETTY COMMON. In game of thrones abby so. I'm GONNA give breath Ian in this pack a a plus. Davos is kind of Sane so that pulls them down a little bit from some of the other houses. I agree same plus just mouse on shaver alone. If it was the only Baratheon card in there would would have been enough. Yeah yeah that's going to be super cool. Well actually no four cost. I guess you're not Sacrificing anything to cohort to go search. This up you're not trading anything away to two cohorts But who think goodness man? Yeah Wow I'd have. I mean he's still give gifts to the widow. He Do Barra Dragon with. Oh you could and that's still. Yeah yeah sitting on four gold gifts into this like in the middle of now. I know what I'm doing for hand of the king. Why how that hurts. Wow I think that sends great joy shirt. You WanNa go. Well oh I give it three and a half only stacks. Oh yeah okay so less than I expected all right next up. We've got great joy That's going to give us wintertime. Marauders this is a non unique. Non Loyal Forecast Army and iron born does four strength military and our icons in the says weather more summer block guards than winter block arts revealed wintertime. Marauders cannot be declared as an attacker or defender reaction after. You Win a challenge. In which wintertime marauders is participating if there are more winter plot cards than summer block cards revealed choose a non unique card and discard it from play and then we have conquer which is a to cost loyal attachment Non Unique location only take control of attached location? A weirdly enough. I actually think. Conquer is reasonably balanced In second add to the non unique thing means you're not like totally hosing someone taking their I dunno arbor. They just spent their whole marceline invested Nan. Or something So you're kind of hitting some more utility Connie type stuff like okay Marauders I'm legitimately having a hard time with The ability is super strong. I mean Beck in the first edition of the game. It was also kind of a mid range character though it was a little little cheaper three then but it was a whole different cosker But the the really big kicker with it back then was attachments Or rather Duplicates I mean because they were actually blank attachments On the the character could be hit by this can. Can they still be hit by this? Sure I have no idea is. This is a good question this is this is important to know for and the king. I don't believe so regardless double check discarding stuff like this with with no limit again say discarding Ann Arbor. They just invested in or something right. They don't have that Non-limited kicker or non unique or anything like that or no. Sorry he does say unique so no no art who you know actually. Maybe this is okay. I mean winter during two cards. Get Real narped. By the fact that you can only get non UNIX and winter has just not been nearly as good in secondhand right. Well it's harder to turn those on first edition just like you play. Cards says boom. It's winter or summer. And what like more winter than summer so hard to do such economy trade and always wanted to summer plot? Cards in a deck and apply. It just turns out like every grid. Econ plot is a summer plot right turns ritter just kingdoms but I think Jeez. Now I'm really trying to stop and think they may also be some of the two to ten drops or kingdom and edicts or would not eat expert keenum's and whatever the hell then summer I mean between the two that it's okay. I'm still looking for duplicate thing. Conquer definitely seems like the better of the two cards ANA can't Annika's she just go steal their Econ right. Yeah Yeah it's just a joke card choke but it seems like a reasonable like trade off kind of choke card for second ad to me like you're paying to to get you know a probably a one or zero value back like like the caller. Hugo's Lang fe paint a goal to play it and you steal it at such to gold swing. Yeah I'm Dallas. Yeah I mean and if the game runs long than maybe you've gotten some income back on rose road or you know whatever I mean. Ideally you're probably stealing one of their to cost income like the in Alice. Income locations are probably some of the bigger ones to steal drilled on just as duplicates are considered a blank duplicate card. Okay there we go sure sounds like marauders can discard them in. Second Ed to then. That's that's still pretty strong but winter they got like fish whiskers he. Can Maybe Co in a deck. No but I mean like having more winter than summer. Oh yeah yeah I mean but like this is like more. It's weird that it's like and I get why it's ingrained. Your exit. Previously was to winter more than summer. Cards and like stark has so much more than that. Serve using this card. It's like stark banner great joy. And then you're just building a bad deck or maybe you're just planning on. I don't know really choking them out and you're you're gonNA conquer their stuff and you're GonNa Award. They do get to play and then you can run all Nan and make everything winter. I like the way you think I like the way you think. I don't have any wild and crazy stories in particular about these though Do you guys have anything about them. What our time routers the. Og One roasted meat too. Many games account We draft Philly this year with. I said cards and someone passed him. This and that's fine. He's never gonNA make it winner. Then there was a dude who does him being out made it. Winter need drafted tool them. Nice who has Kayla stuff and then as I think preceded a new all. My things sounds like Little triggered triggered. Well okay. So what are we? Give great joy on this pack then a actually feel like they maybe come out among the weaker like they may be a bit worse than Baratheon even are they only like a b. Plus out of this. I almost think they're that low. I think that's I say see. Who Wow I like both these cards. Just don't like they need to have a specific deck. Conquer probably doesn't broaders. Obviously you do like a C. Plus I'M GONNA give it three six year olds you're saying out of how many. I don't know five okay. How big are these sushi rolls? Once affiliate wants a California ones Caterpillar like regular California or like crunchy lost lots of Caterpillar. Then because I prefer them crunch Caterpillar Crunch California because I had one last night. Well right. Yes Well that sounds like Lancaster's up right nothing right and so I should have counted the way I should have counted this al. Just do it. Well I'll let you get the latter. Okay who thanks. So No. One wants to hear his actup. You happy so I we've got the SPIDERS whisperer. This is a non unique non loyal to cost three strength. Intrigue icon ally Forced Reaction. After spiders whisper enters play. Choose an ally character and discard it from play and then we get an event. This one's loyal three cost wheels within wheels action. Neil a unique Lena character to choose in reveal a new plot card. Max One per round boy what to say about these. I'll start with spiders whisper I do find it a little hilarious. Knowing the way the cost curves in these two additions changed this was a CG era guard Back then it was three cost and to strength so it actually got more efficient in second ed which I didn't expect but also it has super dated art and Oh yeah inability. This is not really relevant in second ad. It's Kinda like it's Kinda like okay so you know the whole thing. Where Dean D Said that Danny just Kinda was that. She kind of forgot about her. Dragons in in. The last season thrones set what she forgot about she forget about something the navy the Navy. Yes she just kind of forgot. Yeah great choice. Yeah I feel like the same thing happened in second edition. They just kind of forgot about allies. They they like printed a few cards and then they didn't really make cards worth eighty on so this you know man go on winter fell. Stewards our allies. Oh you got it. Yeah you got no claims for you idiots in my bad. I don't know how I didn't get that before. Good job ice catch and I I mean I suppose if we were to really keep going. I guess there's evidently more than I thought. Eighty six of them but how many are played. And how many matter will We'll give you some some choice. Doozy's here visor. That's that's a Chiswick couvert loyalist desert scavenger. There we go. There's another the claim folks and Dragon faithful on also devout free writer. Yeah ooh high guarded Jester. Hey their car that's The king's men. Yeah Lord Sport Fisherman. That's that's all right to solve inches act price is. I'm GONNA stop there. You get the idea that like in first ED allies used to be I at NC CG like slapping the Allied Trade on some of these strong characters was a balancing factor that you know maybe they were going to get blown up. But there's nothing worth blowing up instead. They just gave ally to a whole bunch of piddly. Non Unique that don't matter so yeah wheels man wheels here. We go this Man This is really sending me down memory lane. This sucker was printed in the very first set of the game Back in Western addition of the C. C. G. Still using that. Samart too and if I remember correctly was the second card to be banned in the game if I remember right The first one being another latest event counter plot Though well just cancel an opponent's reveal plot But yeah so we'll see you do all sorts of silly stuff. I'll let you guys talk about that. 'cause I already talked too much about these memories. You conditionally stuff now. I just feel like calls mocking me. I for one enjoyed storytime with will like the possibilities are endless. You can do in any phase. He got three Golden Azure some real busted dumped. Shit you can do here This car is this. This beanie marsh we do that Let's see what else I After you count Gold Marshall Her than a and valor and then Marshall Give this so-called brought a deck based out abusing this and Some plots at affect stack at the time back at the end of First Ed two cards in your hand going into turn one marshalling and beat it and Swiss. I beat it for one time in the cut and then Johnny right knocked me out within toppy for the last I Edwards says the sad moment better than that fun card like article shake now. But it's been a it's been a crazy Sort of Enabler to other editions. The game now and then we'll have back again. the The classic era play Was actually use another card from later in this pack and I'm GonNa go ahead and spoil Rioting the discards knelt characters but of course Lancaster was the neo faction in the era. So you could. Neil all of your opponent's stuff or let them make their challenges and Neil out all their characters while you just don't bend or whatever and then you just flip into rioting and then they lose all their characters and I believe writing also said cannot be saved so yeah there we gotta also works. Further down with another spoiler rule by decree that was always a fun option to do prior to marshalling or plot phase shenanigans. Yeah that was. That was a part of that. So cal deck. You're talking about Reiko Yep good so overall as a huge fan boy for the life of this game. I'm torn ear Spiders whisperer I mean even when it was applicable was not in my mind and I- Conic Rodent Card. There's a ton of stuff I would've named before this castle Iraq or the old Taiwian that The New Agenda. Taiwian or hell like was it. Gold Mine was at the old lanny draw. Location even now icon. Eric and what it combined well with wheels within wheels because let you draw when he revealed a new plot but oh well wheels is super with Lancaster Still not doing so hot at the moment. I'm extremely didn't theoretically know not sure what to give Lancaster out of this pack do I? I mean Gosh. Just on these cards. I probably stopped to give Lancaster and s tier right. 'cause WHEELS IS THAT INSANE. I give it a like Six gold coins now six mastercards. I don't know four and a half. Yeah I mean same thing with the breath cards just carries the way to the other ones like an insane. Values definitely asked here. I'll why don't you lay the the Marta card? Donna SEK speaking of et year cards. Not This first one. Though I one is prince's loyalist it's a non unique character. Four costs four strength. Military intrigue icon the coveted ally trait will you is where. I will admit the first instance of the quite a few quite a few. The first instance of the new slash old keyword prized surprised one stealth immune to events and it has an interrupt when the effects of a triggered character ability would initiate pay to gold to cancel his affects. The second card is a loyal event to cost. You murdered her children. After you lose a challenges. A defending player choosing attacking character in discarded from play cannot be saved then search. It's controllers hand and deck for any number of copies in that care of that character and discard them shuffled that players deck. That is just I- words just from even just look at your opponent's deck cool but the other assets just nuts. That is just an insane card. Yeah that's it's probably the best in the entire pack. My favorite thing about it is that you get to shuffle. Your upon. That's like you know what? Let me say this I have to. I can't let you shop your word. I don't think so. You're the person that like when they offer you a cut. You just shuffle it in front of them. I mean it's allowable ugly through I mean Prince. Loyalists is just like a shitty begging brother. You murdered her nuts. Yeah I mean you. Murder children especially in second ed like in the C. C. G. and I add where you generally only ever played one copy of a unique character and the the whole game like turned so much more on non U. Niks like it would suck When this happened to you but in second ed like well here. Here's another card to just end voltron decks car. O U You attacked with your Queen Danny or whatever well sorry. They're out for the game. Yeah it just the different setup here really kind of breaks that capability and it boggles my mind that this is actually even cheaper than wheels within wheels. I I don't know what an appropriate cost for. Either of those actually would be in second edition. Sit literally all you have to do is just lose. You don't even have to lose by five. You don't have to lose a specific challenge. It's just like lose. Sialkot it real hard and blow a lot of time studying their deck if you want. I mean the DECK KNOWLEDGE GAP. It also just insane I don't know I mean you know there's there's a lot of stuff that is not really a surprise these days you know the decks pretty well are established enough. You know you. They're not plane as surprise copy of. I Dunno a milk of the POB that you weren't expecting probably right but it mainly for like Sia blood decks so like you know how many of the swords and the doctor. How many of the torches are the decks that way you can like because eventually if you're winning you know see a blood deck like they can only kill you two or three times guy whatever. I don't care about your agenda anymore. So this'll be good like know what the options are. Yeah I mean I think the same thing. Kind of applies to trading cohort right. Like the didn't this technology. I think seems really strong against any other decks that want to search their own decks. If you also know what they're capable of getting so kind of put you on even playing ground in that particular scenario. I wouldn't say well it helps in that. Same Knowledge Gap Yeah Who Princes loyalist that? One's a doozy that had a The dubious honor of being the only card ever to have been early rotated To to folks that have only followed effigy since like two thousand ten or newer You may not realize that they used to keep games alive long enough to have to rotate sets to keep a a healthy environment As opposed to the current era when they instead and the game And so what do you mean thrones supposed to rotate after the eighth set? Yeah Yeah and ELVIRA Varo make it to rotation to but anyway So the the Princess. Loyalist was busted everywhere. All the time and I can get to that but it actually in an FAQ update. I think about three months or so before the Senate was in was actually set to rotate out. They added a special entry to say that it was rotated out of standard or whatever. The format was called at the time. So Yeah As far as it being bonkers all over the place I mean it's worth pointing out that at the time. It costs three for four strength so to put that. In like second edition terms it'd be like for for six strength give or take Maybe seven strength. I don't know things have kind of inflated there and the The cancel was much more wide reaching than this tried to go. Pull up a copy of the old one so I double check. I wanted to say it could cancel events as well but maybe it was just character. Abilities regardless it didn't didn't cost to gold to do at the time you You just melt an influence which was a alternate resource scheme but suffice it to say People just pretty much could trigger character abilities anymore. Once he was on the board He did the erratically. Have a bigger draw back. He had the doomed mechanic Which was a little different You lost the game. If you ever add five doomed cards near Ed Bile It also meant that they crazy pumped up up so they never never got that balance right now. It's just like with backing brother existing. It just choosing still seems like a good card paying to to to cancel stuff is probably what really kinda holes it down But it's still like has some reasonable tradeoff versus begging brother little bit bigger of a body. The immunity to events is actually nothing to sneeze at. Lusts stealth like yeah. I mean I think like from a pier. Value sample banging brother is better. But like for a long term short term versus long term begging brothers better than the short-term loyalists would you better in the long term so I guess it makes sense to Martel card. I think I think that's does sound reasonable because I think one of the differences that kind of excels between our ms the begging brother you. You've got an invest in those cancels upfront bestow loyalist. As long as you've got any turned down the line where you can afford to save at least two gold And you can cancel stuff and heck you know some late games. It's not insane that you could be sitting on enough to cancel. You know like three character abilities in one round you know. Yeah so there's definitely a bigger upside the further out you go for sure we've totally lost this point have absolutely. I don't even think is here anymore. I'm like super here. Yeah so what? What rating would you give then? Kyle probably like twelve bottles of sunscreen. Ooh Okay out of twelve. Perfect will speed. Spf Sixty by how? Jesus that's low. I'm in Iowa I well I can't say that. No you can't no you can't and that's what's important not Nathan things. I Dunno sure. It's we're reviewing cards. Our made to explain abuse us. I'll keep crying in my beer. So martell What what are you Zach Triple S. They're probably the strongest in here. I think yeah anything about how they can abuse the neutrals like a party. Yeah I think I think you might be on something. They're they're way up there. There's a slight chance that princess loyalist might survive in like the regular format. But I really don't think you murdered children should be allowed so I'll give him an s plus It's back to me for nightwatch. Oh Yeah Okay here. We go I up Sam Well the Chin Charlie. A ONE COST UNIQUE. Non Loyal one strength and intrigue icon his Stewart and has no attachments except Raven and action Nielsen. Waltari to look at the top four cards of your Dak. Switch one of those cards with card in your hand if able then place the remaining cards on top of your back in any order. Then we've got old bear. Mormon tea is going to be a three cost to strength Loyal with military and power icons commander and Lord Traits Action. Neil older Moremon to choose and stand another night's watch or Lord character and reaction after character. You control his killed. Stand old bear more Mont Okay to quickish anecdotes here One this bear more. Mont made way more sense as a neutral card in the C. C. G. So that you could include him in any deck and use him to keep standing up lords and doing stuff Hilariously he actually had the same cost and strengthen icons and stuff at the time He wasn't great but he was passable. Then same. Well Charlie was just annoying. Never quite like busted But he was also from the CG era and was a rare And was neutral because of course nightwatch wasn't a faction then So he was one of the like chase cards. Like if you were going to play competitive thrones you had to have a copy of Sam and had to have him in your deck because the card filtering was too good there was other than having to track him down as a rare and spend the money on him there was no downside whatsoever to including it He he was a required play. So yeah probably still is and second ed unless you've got a really strong reason for one of the other. Two Sam's right like is now than Subaru excited. To write home about the cost alone is what makes it worth it like the abilities like boring but one cost card filter. You can't pass it up. Yeah he's innocent. The primary now the best shudder game fair to say. Yeah. I think he's not loyal. Kyle do you do banner? Watch just to have him dog. No now just checking. I say some weird stuff More years she yeah. It's odd because he's like he's he's good but like as you said it's just like he's not the best but he's definitely he's worse it's like work on like recons not. GonNa do anything by himself but he he alone can like you know. Stop a thing or do a single thing. You just. Does that one thing well enough that like why ever not include him? You know helps out a set up a little bit graduates from cards. You know just in case you haven't seen your your in yet. You need to Dig Forum. So I don't know weirdly enough I give because I still don't think I don't think old bear really wise in secondhand. As a loyal being loyal loyalty loyalty kills them. Yeah does night's watch. Do I only give them like a B. as well maybe so. I'm going to go with a B. Two B. do another C plus two out of five tacos. What type of talkers? Fish crunchier yourself. We went there probably crunchy. I really don't like nightwatch. Just don't general principles not like these cards. Just watch as a skin after's. Es Screw that. Just yes I mean. Yeah he doesn't want speaking of people who John Snow that actually is lay it on US womb Catlin's stark unique loyal four cost character for strength Intrigue Power Con House totally laid lady traded action during an Intrigue Power Challenge in which you are the defending player callen stark into play from your hand knelt participating as a defender at the end of the face of Catlin. Stark is still in play. Return her to your hand. Second Start Car is a unique unique location. Snow Castle loyal cost one house. Aaron Traded Neil Snow Castle to choose a start character until the end of the phase at carrots plus one strength for each character. You control these are both like solidly. Good cards the only issue is Catlin. Stark is called Catlin stark and should not any other card if she was a different a different card should be amazing. But it's hard to put her in in place of the other Cowan starks. Snow Castle just absurd. I think callans fine. I mean. She's better than her. I said counterpoint because a I think it's a better tire strength. The other one was in. You don't have to win in first and yet a defend with her hand win there to bounce back. This wants us like three of the be still around. She's coming home like she's definitely good. Are you really not put in the cow? Like core cat or fat cat. I don't know I I think I'm was act on s like the this Kaelin was important. He and like I said when by actually CG era originally. I believe Where stark had a really well defined really noticeable intrigue weakness so a being able to pop her in when your opponent wasn't expecting it to defend an entry challenge might like really swing a game on a key challenge I mean I guess theoretically that's always possible but the need is not there the same way and second like stark as a bunch of real playable intrigue icons the did. Just don't have that whole so I I would probably play core over this unless I'm specifically you know building fat cat. That cat is life. I know for you for anybody else but for everyone else. That's okay yeah. People get really off the fat cat train. Once we learned that she didn't actually have. Oh man left field. Yeah didn't see that common. Ooh Yeah if you WANNA get kyle back him up for one of those comments. L. Duncan immediately. And the okay. I'm I'm trying to wrap my brain. Macaroni car yeah. No I'm I'm staring. No cat go figure I am at least I give it like snowcap now a lot a lot. I'm just trying to figure out I'm like remember 'cause Snow Castle. That was the CG Eric Card. And I'm yeah but that's less good because you don't have as many win by blank effects like maybe this helps like stark see above That's it maybe stark rains but again. That's what I was trying to figure out is like it didn't wow anybody back then like it was frustrating. Sometimes I guess it like usually one you whatever one challenge you threw it at but people of kind of gathered a really think. Snow Castles Pretty bonkers. I think Zach was kind of leaning that direction for so. Yeah I mean. Builds like just the bear island loyalists can. We'll get you. What four or five bodies on the board that alone like as you win one challenge but like builds pretty quick one challenge could net you five or six power? Yeah that's the catcher. I guess is it has has to be addicted really just wants to win that one challenge not so you got dates just Alex. Yeah why do we keep saying one challenge so essential? I gotTA keep the engine. Somehow you were the only one that was making essential was I. I also have a really good segue for the next. Ooh Okay speaking of cancer. Oh Man I knew it was gonna be good Windsor that he had a good train. Shala other one or you get a cat though I guess moving on to our Gary now with no segue whatsoever. How Weird is that so I? We've got a long time friend of the show John Bruno's champ card. The mad king heiress Who is a loyal unique of course? Five cost injury power icons four strength. King and Lord Prized won renown. Macking Aris cannot be killed and listen opponent controls lord or lady character orser Jamie Lane. Astir dominance action Neil mad king areas to choose and kill a lord or lady character limit. Watts around a feast. This one's a loyal event for two action. Choose three characters without attachments until the end of the phase one of those cares gets minus one strength one gets minus two strength and one gets minus three strength. Which one we start on boys. I think both of these get some talk your. Let's start the good one snead. Yeah but which were you. You know the good one juror. I'll start with Hash. Mi missed how about that? I mean it's it's at least shorter discussion where I just say amazed that it is effectively cheaper even than it was and I add where it cost three influence. Slow down to two gold. And this thing wildly warps a challenge phase right like you. Just oh challenge phase in second ad with this blood of the Dragon Board Wipe Yeah even without that you just like the minus six distributed. However you want like you win. You're now military or whatever makes the stuff. Yeah that's it. It's stupid that shouldn't have been printed or with burn. Danny the five Dr Danie. This makes horace plus more Dakar's plus more. That'll be may thrones lurking. Read it on your little papers and you throw it at people always. Yeah this is yeah. I don't know it's way too efficient. Already looking real good right now. I do not think this could enter. The Real Carpool. I'm here for all. Those events are handled the kings it'll be spicy spicy. Or what about mad king heiress you got some thoughts on that one turns out being able to just like and murderer lords and ladies to good almost like second ed revolves way more around getting specific lords. Ladies OUT THAN I did. This is how about that. I so badly gets the hand of the King Deck. I mean probably good when I talked about the deck builders being like the Hertie dirt's navy hardy dirty way past this probably. I mean they're they're working legitimately like game breaking stuff just like a balanced breaking sorry goes. I'm just wasn't wasn't he forecast in IPAD. Kyle Cash Sheila Dude. I think he I think he was four. If I remember right it just boggles my mind to see this ability at just five in second ad like he should be at least seven right when you compare them to like ill in pain or something wind. I don't know yeah but ellen pain like he doesn't cost more or anything to do less. Yeah Yeah it's not like Illinois. Six has one last strength. No positive key word can always be killed and has a very limited strength category that it can hit nothing like that. I think I think this is a good example by the way of something. I meant to mention earlier when when Zack mentioned that we had brought the prized keyword back and introduced it to second edition. Which again I'll remind people that means win win. That prize card leaves play Your opponents Loro all of them gain whatever the gain as much power as the price number is right but like all of these are prized. One aren't hey don't think any of them are higher and there's only a bear he believes seren also like a sports okay boilers But I just. I don't feel like this kind of key. I mean I never feel these negative key. Words like the balance has ever worked out right on them for prized or doomed. Back in the day But even worse is you're giving us a tiny little drop with like four prized cards like that effectively means that that prized might as well not even be printed on them like. It's it's only dangerous when there's like a high proportion of them or a really high proportion of like Howard gain rushie stuff. Where know the one prized guard? That you played might give them their fifteenth power. But this tiny little drop doesn't doesn't matter my might as well not be there. He should have been prized six. Might be a little much but like yeah. That seems good. That seems good. For maybe maybe priced four. I could I could roll with price for Jesus mean how fitting actually you know from a Nedley perspective. Shouldn't he probably be like Christ fifteen like you kill? You read cleanly congratulations. You Win the game. You claim the throne. Because he's dead. Maybe maybe with. Yes Man. So targets split plus. Yeah for sure like I. Just don't think either of these cards can actually exist in a real. Second Edition Carpool. Oh God no outcome over. The agencies have children users. I mean those are not say Scorpion. Three bags of Burt marshmallows okay. What size emotional is the big ones like like nor no or you mean like actually the jumbo ones like the jumbo ones. Well we'll get some people the minis and then think of normal size at say the Big Dog. And that's true that's true gross. I mean I don't doubt it but gross. How many bags of marshmallows? I don't know what any three hundred percent beyond. That's burt marshmallows. That actually some accurate. Sorry it's three two and one bags of Burma Chmelnice Ska- I like it. Speaking speaking of things that are three. I got nothing to try. I tried so hard. I gotta go with things that look like marshmallows I duNNo. She's got me sleeves speaking of things that are puffy white. We've got the queen of Thorns three cost. Non Loyal Three Strength Character Intrigue Power Icon Lady Traded while the Queen of Thorns. A standing opponent's cannot initiate entry. Challenge against you and then we have a unique location. Olenin study to three cost. Location aren't traded. I garden traded. Each player may initiate an additional entry. Challenge each round. Non Unique characters cannot be declared as attackers or defenders. An entry challenges. This cute little combo. I don't think it's something to go crazy about though I mean. I don't think it's something to go crazy about from like a boosting Els SORTA thing I mean. They're pretty far out in the rankings. At the moment right it's like a fun may laid off is legal. If if the world wasn't dominated by Dr Accurate. Now say this. I mean injury. Jones has historically been the worst probably in over the life of Second Edition. Not so little inversed as at a actually this those of these were. Ccd Eric Cards. And this This queen of Thorns was a neutral promo way back in the Sierra and was very frequently played out of stark who had this huge injury coal And as a big ladder player at the time I definitely remember ranting a lot about how it was kind of absurd to turn off a whole challenge type And like when there were all these things that keyed off of actually winning entry challenges and stuff and just literally make it so they can't even be initiated. Seemed Way Outta of whack. I still think that is a bad space to be in. I do not think she's good for the game where she to be. Legal in a regular format But I think her negative effects are less noticeable in second edition. Because there's so much less playable stuff that triggers off of intrigue in Second Ed. It's it's definitely the The third rate challenge for the most part. Yeah tyrel once again gets the like mayor. Almost skewed handed the stick. Thanks to do with derail that we realized that that was terrible on. We just don't know what to do what. Ge To for like a Klondike bar oar more like your boomer uncle who's like? I was really good like the war. I was really good at four. Now I drive does not non so yeah olenin study. I like I like your thought about this as a melee cards. Ac You thinking about Playing this lake. Lancaster rose with the Seven costs thirsty. Give your opponents all these extra intrigue challenges and then just dare them to Leeann. I mean I personally. I'd run both in the Malay Declan Thorns Andolina. Study may but totally you make your opponents. Use The extra challenges on other people other than you. Yeah Yeah because then you can do like just like stupid. You could also run like the event let you get an extra intrigue and Military Challenge. And then there's just a whole bunch of other crap you can do the informants. You can have like four or five injury challenges. Luckily you're going to be able to do that like a ton of sanctioned Malay events that allow the The box what would we give tyrel here too sad flowers. Oh should've to the WARS OUT OF FOUR MR -TUNITIES. Who's we'll have to edit out so much of this shit even happened. I mean I may just go with it. These days. A new edgier. You haven't read this way. I put on pricing road. A free listening. Not Your father's white book Somehow that sounds that particular phrasing makes. It sounds so much worse right. It's like give it a I give normalcy really. I think it's I think it's better. I don't know yeah well like he missed me in this vacuum apart. It's up against the rest of the cards and houses in this pack. Okay you you have a point there. I almost rated it based on like real world actual play abilities that without I am not doing to that. Okay how about just how about his hand to the king. Usefulness I mean it's not bad. Yeah yes she wouldn't be terrible. You'd get her out really fast. She down she's not. She's not broken her go do you. Don't use the king that's okay no use like someone good is out of the game. I propose we do so. It's nine forty five and we are literally. How many neutral third. It's we had. If we do the two neutral characters we will be at the halfway point. Mickley thought we'd overweight turns out. Yes yes it's a two parter in means that come back we're GONNA WE'RE GONNA happy. There's just no way in hell that we use the whole pack is next time on your. Danny Wow ooh. I'm going to throw out some props. And slops by slopping the flu particularly this year's flu strain be which really Fucked up my weekend plans this past. Weekend Yeah that sucks. I did not make it two. I O worlds. I stayed here to Nursemaid Kristen So Yeah I mean on the plus side. We watched a lot of British gardening. Tv which I love Monty. Don Is my hero But I was super bummed to Miss Iowa. Outta how'd that go cow not bad considering We like the Midwest has got rocked by a blizzard Shadow to show all Matt Jenkins for became a harrowing tale of an impromptu overnight derived from memphis a as part of their journey north. That whole thing not crease. Most to happened does bananas They made it good really really happy to see them We had eighteen players. Probably twenty two twenty three people Present thousand is Delia Cure. Did play one game. So we hit twenty people I did run the White Book Agenda in an attempt to get Bob to finally lose. His bet is standing white book of a Free Dinner. I really wondered when I saw that. You were playing Tyrel White Book on Jousting Pavilion Tommy. Another go it's not tear a terrible but it's not as good at anything as any other. We'll get some strange. I guess I'm bored presence but like characters doing anything in stark ones do and like I got some like rushie ability but like not as good as must the other houses and the guy got a little bit control but yeah I did play Clemens Round One and the White Tower really really mucks with tar bird so that was pretty awesome. I got to fourteen power still on the but it's like got the effect to go off a couple of times. He's pretty cool. I mean that was kind of thought was against Authroity. Sellout defend the military challenge. You can win it but then you can stand all your dudes backup so like a big drawback to selling out on defense is gone nick. This'll be great. I'm no it's Moniz. They still apparently defending for turn. One military being defend with seventeen is not enough. They can still trigger their agenda still does than dislike murder. Your Shit Nice. Well that was down to the real question is how much have I always? Do you remember not alive so we like. Did anyone a whiskey to no one touch the whiskey We've got the so. I will tap into the upstairs. This bar Slash restaurant and we have the whole place. Sounds pretty sweet. Get up We sat at the bar upstairs and Wausau todd some dice betting games and then we bit rounds of shots so you play the game. Whoever's last one out has to buy Brownsville shots on the played and by like my foggy count I think I did by in the mid to high shots. I only paid for three rounds so that turned out pretty good now. Three rounds for like ten eight people's is a lot but of and then Tommy saw ping pong balls behind the Bar Nassar. We could play beer pong. She said yes. She got pitchers and than there is beer. Pong and a little little while we stay there till close wandered back home at that point We sat in the library and made Alexa play songs and some brats told us all about like things. He has strong. I imagined Danny right at a suddenly nope she was okay. They're your friends. You've stay up so that will get you remember. This is like three thirty four in the morning so so yeah I just wake up to. It didn't happen try and recover. Disa- magic draft drafted that new show. All stayed late Sunday. That would went set. Pre-release draft US impacts. The Greek mythology. Stuff is pretty cool What else happened. That's premature is really good. It's really good year. Says the last world there will not be never be another world on the next event will be called Kyle Con. There will be far less cost. centric nobody moving to believe summer. Twenty twenty one so that point to be more like a Union. We can get back together. Play I mean we'll probably like a cube draft Maybe like say. Hey if you have a built deck we can do some some standard format. Play alive is going to be like drafts. Said Four Games and drinking and hanging out and much more like a house party in less like a turnament hookah. And so you're you're basically just kind of model it off of Willie gone. Yes yes nothing right sesame. More the plan. To being like seventy percent thrones thirty percent. Bullshit can be like seventy percent bullshit. Thirty percents around still from this point sounds good. I have one prop in that is for new game. Coming out that Bhai starling games called a war of whispers. I washed reviewing some. Let's plays on it. The guys at shut up and sit down. Refer to it as so if you played. The game of thrones board game and found yourself thinking. I wish I could do this in an hour instead of six and do friends really sad okay. This is the game free so it looks pretty cool. I'm going to try and TRACK DOWN. A copy knows how to get one lease. Levy no But I'm pretty cited a Guy. Because that's wrong. With the thrones board game right like you WANNA play. But I don't usually have half a day to sit down and do it so getting a quicker game would be better but you all play as spies. So there's like four armies on the board that attack each other but you're spies for different factions and you'll have like a different order you want the army's to finish in and then you like play shadow politics to influence how those armies attack each other okay. So so. It's pretty cool for D. predictable so then you're like backstabbing this army. That's played by the way. I not like your. Don't say screw your friends GonNa but there's still that like portrayal mystique element without being as cutthroat brutal or complicated or time-consuming Zack. You that in your would yeah. Yeah time in the same vein as Kyle recently bought into a game called Tim. Tim Upon kind of clone similar game on steam and it just had some semester stellar opinions about game frequently. And I figured great just basically a book him on Games like upgrades that it should have been in like pokemon sunny moon most most of the battles. I must've Batu onto. It looks good. It doesn't like the POKEMON soared to yesterday's game and it's just like looks like a you know a double a game doesn't look great. Don't get me wrong but it's a it's a it's a good okay. Finally Okay Yeah I finally started playing the witcher three. I Guess Yeah Yeah. It's the first of the WITCHER Games I've played but Watching the show convinced me. I should find the breakdown and play it. And it's it's really fun One that soon as I scare up more time to really sit down and play it which is probably going to be hard for the next few weeks but it's GonNa really absorb my attention. I'm I'm one of those people that strip mined every planet in the entire galaxy in the effect games like strip mined every planet So I imagine I'm GonNa blow a lot at sites us it sure. He's agree easily one hundred hours easily. Yeah and of course. It's the the game of the year edition so it's got all the D. L. C. Which of course adds that stuff so no one was garbage. But if you can play which to that one's definitely pretty good. Yeah I've heard it. It's pretty decent. It's just a very different type of offensive Adl controls odd. Okay Gotcha WHOA okay. This is cool all right. I'm GONNA throw some some props out here To something random that I just noticed. 'cause I'm I'm sitting here searching up some of my own like game projects and stuff on RPG geek And the main game that I've talked about here on the show Party I that I put out back in the fall. I actually the entry on RPG Geek For that particular game So it had info but I threw out another game right before Christmas. called warmer in the winter and I searched for it just now and discovered someone else went to the effort of Putting a listing on RPG geek. So that's kind of cool. That's entertaining. I have no idea who did that. But props to you. Whoever you were man. I didn't expect that to just like totally avary. These guys are twelve grant. Money Games check Hey Board Games. I made my own a playstation. Well the whole thing how they're making board games. I'm pretty great it's way more. Fresno talking about our EG's thank you very much. There tabletop games. Okay Trust me. I play Dungeons and dragons. I know He. We definitely wandered so deep into the dangerous out. Do this to you singing thing too dangerous and yet still the highlights sports probably the first time you you cut that low quality entertainment man X. When I think about terrible podcasts shows like I think about well tops top. Three it's like will will will. He's he's definitely talked. Hey why weren't you at my party Yes weekend were you off too. So our hotel was Cirque du. Soleil was staying with our hotel. Say weren't GonNa get laid. No it's I I wish I try. There's a lot of hot guys. They're just sold out our hotel for like seven straight days side to work all those days. I can't wait for you to listen to what we said. It's shit talk some of it episode. Actually head Mr Egg. We've been talking yeah.

"Thursday welcome to the white book podcast, the original A Game of Thrones lcg podcast originally founded in 2010 stoop Champs in a trump. We decided to Rebrand when the game relaunched second edition a huge. Thank you goes out to Fantasy Flight games George Martin for the scheme and world we love and of course to my co-host and you the listeners, please if you enjoy the show leave us a review on iTunes or your platform Choice comment on our Facebook threads or even better support us on patreon Wheel Of turning that kind of support back into the community. This is season 10 of the White Bulls. Pocket down and pack well lower now. We're recorded. They're tearing us a week later. Definitely reporter not even a week later. He'll put this up on this Friday because he didn't get sort of last week so or like a week before either right? Well, we recorded one and then I wound up having to go take care of some family medical stuff. So I haven't actually gotten to edit that page the one we did on the 3rd cycle. Yeah, so we've got that in the bank. So I'll probably drop that this Friday and either we will just stay a week ahead. Like we used to be for a while or I'll just dump like 2 in the week or something. I mean, I guess listeners will figure that out. Hi, I'm Aaron. Yeah, no. No, we always like discussing the mechanics of the show on air and making listeners. Listen wage as a listener before host. That kind of thing was always my least favorite like when Dowling this releasing and everyone be like for ten minutes I hated it. I was like, oh my God talk about the damn cards. I'm just happy to hear your voices. There we go. Voices new voices who's invoices our new voice, I guess right? No I miss said your voice is I was always just a CO off cuz Sam Sam does not count as a new voice. I've been on enough now and I played magic with him three times this week. So like I've definitely heard as he demanded to be added to the hosts chat. So like okay and has regretted it since yeah. Yeah you seen the real grimy bits about that sausage gets made off and nuts. Yeah Nobles. So basically just Kyle bitching about everything at all times. Great. Yeah when he remembers that the light book chat exist. So whenever he's grumpy, right like happy Kyle doesn't know what the white book is grumpy. Kyle is like the white book jet. I feel like yeah grumpy Kyle's when he rediscovers his friends. Yeah. Well speaking of what we have a house is nice as Kyle wage. You don't need friends if you enjoy. Yeah, you need servants with the health like that. I think. But speaking of grumpy, I'm honestly just like really proud of Scott for sticking with the white book chat. Get us know. He's in it. He muted it 6 months ago. How long did okay he meets all his group chats unless you tag him. He doesn't know it exists. Oh, okay. Well, then I will occasionally tag him just to mess with him. Oh when it's not about nothing. He likes to walk, right? Oh, yeah. Yeah, like we're just going to randomly start talking about duplicates again for some reason. Well, then this is episode 442 of the white box knife got back to props and slops this week for 42. Yeah. And actually, you know when Roy and I last recorded the Thrones half of the show, we were kind of jotting out when number 450 was going to come out and I lamented at the time that it was going to come out at the start of December. I think rather than the end when we normally take our break and I jokingly said something about oh man. If only she could come up with some way to delay it a little bit. I did not mean like this like the past couple of years have been so be careful what you wish for. Yeah. Yeah. However not have been holding that monkey's paw. However, I wished for a movie just like an older homes. Is that the one thing we all watched movie? That is a movie. I believe we all watch. Did everyone see it. I thought I did. Yeah, you did last month. All right everybody, but will I said I did everybody but we'll all right. I'm literally the person that typed it on the list, right everyone. But all right God so the movie was completely delightful. Yes. Yes. Yeah. Yeah. I think there was not a thing that I disliked. I'm very happy at the beginning like I thought they were going to turn her into Watson. I wondered about that. Yep, and I'm really really happy. They decided not to I'm really happy that like there is no and like I guess spoilers but like Sherlock and Mycroft were only minor characters kind of the secondary villain. I would say he was still kind of as a minor character. I mean, I agree he was probably like the I would say even like the main antagonist cuz he's kind of the one behind it, but Yeah, I just like that. It wasn't a story about them. Yeah, I was afraid that homes would kind of come in and take over but he didn't thousand and eleven winter time to enjoy. And 11 in The Witcher didn't have any magical battles, which was nice or let down man. That would be I would watch that movie. Did everybody see the see the meme with Cox cable and Robert Downey Junior and Benedict Cumberbatch about how if you play enough superheroes and until you become Sherlock Holmes? Yes, I did not but I like it Cumberbatch to do it do the Sherlock before he did and he's the best Sherlock. I've literally ever received but he's the best Sherlock I've ever seen Robert Robert Downey jr. Movies are absolutely terrible. Yes, and they're Sherlock shows seasons. One two or three is like some of the best QB ever seen the show. Yes. Just want to not actually get it mixed up with what was the American one Elementary? Yeah. It's significantly you're not doing it serviced with your dismissal of it there. It is an ass alive modernization of the Mythos. Is it good? Yes, I mean, so I mean you have to exceed imagine. It is an American procedural like oh I'm just like that. I don't like that kind of show but as long as you can understand the limitations of like or not the limitations, but the the basis of the genre of it mentions the convention. There we go. Yeah, the jobs are like, it's really really quite excellent. Like so what I heard that is really weird. It's CSI Sherlock know that's what I heard you say. It's on CBO. It's CSI Sherlock. No, it's not because it's more Law and Order Sherlock than it is CSI, like Fair enough. I'm not we're really not going to go down this route while he's away. See what you were talking about. I was discussing about like no don't even bring it up. We're just going to go there you guys remember how you used to talk about bad cards longer than you talked about good cards. Yeah. Yeah I get missed what you should do anyway, so but we should talk more about an old homes, which is fantastic. Yeah, Helena, Bonham Carter was fantastic. Like I don't think there was a bad performance. I don't think there was any time I didn't have fun and the movie flew by I guess basically the perfect Netflix watch. Yeah. Yeah, it was pasted really. Well. I and I and I did like the The Limited usage of some fourth-wall-breaking. She kept a really light tone to all the proceedings and it wasn't overused where I just rolled my eyes at it agreed. But I don't know if it did. Yeah, it was just really really really good and you should watch it because it's if you have Netflix it's there and it will make it even and go back. I look forward to seeing more. I assume I can I use the CC. I even really don't think that there will be another one because I agree mostly because this was not supposed to be on Netflix. It was supposed to be released to theaters and Netflix Bonnet. I did not all and when you when you think about it, like I mean maybe because they're both Netflix stars, but it's expensive movie. Right? Like it's got Henry Cavill and 11:00 and Helena Bonham Carter like it's I don't think Netflix could afford to make a movie like Enola Holmes on its own budget that wasn't in the Future movie. They made the the big De Niro movie thing. Right right, but that's dog. To win Academy Awards, right? They made a Smith movie too would say it'd be their Game of Thrones but lots of a ton of money, but that lot like they even came out and said that lost a lot of money maybe yeah, I mean they they might make it like, I mean, it depends it catches on with kids. Right? Like if it catches on with kids, they'll make twenty. Well, I mean look at book. It's consistently been in Netflix's like top ten for since it came out if they did make a sequel I wouldn't be like, oh my God, it was impossible. But I would not Bank on there being a sequel I will be pleasantly surprised if there's a sequel but is not this thing that I would immediately be like, oh Netflix is obviously going to do a follow-up to it. But you can get this Netflix has gotten cheaper and cheaper and cheaper over time. I don't know if I agree with that at all stingy right stingy. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. Yeah like cuz that's just I mean, I think a lot of that's depend emack they've also had no problem that big budget stuff besides that know they've they've cancelled a lot more stuff including stuff that they would have renewed three or four years ago would have happened two or three seasons. They don't think that cheap I think that's just like them. They're hit hunting they're not willing to give things time. Like if it's a hit rate, they'll make it forever. And if it's not you like find your audience or move on cuz there was that show I absolutely love that got canceled out a sitcom with the Indian girl. I'm not okay, maybe some oh, oh wait, none of the superhero one off the comment. Yeah. Yeah. Oh, that one was great. I've never have it. It wasn't as it never happened. Yes, never have I ever have ever? Okay. Yeah. That was so good. That was dead. Yeah, that is an utterly fantastic show. It was so good so good. But as far as Netflix cancellations goes, I'm think Aaron's partly on it with the song Hit hunting but I think there's also another factor in that it gives Netflix a way to add their Library. I mean they are for the last few years as other companies have set up their own competitors. They have been bleeding content. So if Netflix can start a show running for two seasons, then cancel it and direct those monies and energy toward something else and drop another season or two of some other show. They can make it appears like their that their catalog is much bigger than it is in like episode terms. It appears larger from a serious perspective as they lose other stuff off. I honestly think that's a big chunk of things. The other trick that if looks like to do is they film twenty episodes of a show but they release them as yeah ten episodes in seasons and so they will never actually they never plan on doing a third season, but they set it up in a way that you know can make you get you makes you invested like it's going to be a long-running series. So you'll watch the second season but it's highly unlikely based on their metrics that they'll renew it for additional third season because of the way their contracts work. Yeah. I like a lot of their content but man they are Trixie with their audiences or to their audiences rather. Yeah. Well, then that was far-reaching analysis of Netflix business practices and other versions of Sherlock Holmes. If we could move on from homes, then I mean it just continues to show that eleven million Millie Bobby Brown. Well about is going places. Yes. I on the oil producer on this film also write really yeah, that's pretty cool and it just in itself. Yeah. Exactly. Well, hopefully she's going nowhere near drink. Yikes. Wow. Yes, Dracut district is yikes, you know, yeah. Yeah tricks weird. Yep. He's worth. He's a groomer I guess would be so wow slops to Drake. What's next so I watched the first half of the Watchmen HBO show off. If it's not especially my kind of show but it's very serious drama superheroes. If that is your kind of show will lens you will really like it will length. So I want to bring it up in case someone will lend to my will lens it like it. I need to check it out right after I finished the boys season 2 now that it's the same dropped. So it's immediately it's immediately better than the boys season 1. I mean like it's like the lowest but now I'm sorry. Sorry people really like the boys. I gotta stop. I'm sick. I legitimately had a long discussion about the boys and Dennis with Thrones DB maintainer Stephen tops felt so top top step. Sorry, man. I always want to want to flip those letters. Anyway. Yeah, you know, it was a little too dark for me Watchman was dead. But Eliza loved it. She is eating it up. So it's exactly not Roy's taste where it's like too dark and he would just get all like like grumpy about it, you know dark knight style bulb. Whereas I think we'll would watch it and be super into it. Like I'm going to finish it and I have no problem just dropping a show and I fully plan to finish. I appreciate my name being condescended to and dismissed by looking kind of saying that is not at all why I am very skeptical of Watchmen. It has entirely to do with I find Damon Lindelof to be an incredibly boring director and writer like he struggled to show was definitely not boring. Whatever else it is. It is definitely not part. Yes. I I'm quite familiar with with it, but I just said he's so slow like everything is so slow and ponderous it just the show does not feel that I mean, it's only ever going to be Nine episodes apparently, so like it can only be so slow. Yes, I just I just do not like David lindloff like so that's that's my problem with Watchmen play with a lot of things. I'm actually really interested in so you should try it then since you know, I'm watching it on your view. I use HBO Max for other things. So what fresh prince reruns duh, Fresh Prince John's we went through all the Batman movies recently. Yeah. Yeah, you kind of thing do Patrol. What else have I feel like I watch controls on Hispanics. Yeah. I watched the great like the pottery throw down all the all the all the all HBO and DC Universe stuff is migrating over to let me go Max. Yeah shop like Harley Quinn is something I meant like one day I will get around to watching theater that we watched episode 1 and that's it off. It will watch more. Of what Harley? Oh got it. Yeah, I guess I don't I don't watch the series shows cuz I don't have oh no Harley Quinn's a comedy. It's always it off. Let me see. There you go. Basically, I only watch Trash like T like game shows and like series long game shows like the British Bake Off. We're probably thrown out because I can just turn it off and play Candy Crush and not think about 20 20 or Supermarket Sweep on Netflix Oh, yes, that's a good that's a good gigantic waste of your life. That show is kind of disgusting. It's half. Yeah, it is. It's also so 90s. It's yes like that. The outfits are beautiful and the and the number of Roommates that are on that show, right? All right. I'm going to move on to item. Apparently, I've known edited the order we usually edit order. So it's just be times in a row, but I didn't know who put which one in we might need to clear coating spoiler Roy never puts anything in as untrue. I have literally put things into this. And it it's like I pulled one thing again, but two things in this document cuz that's the two things that well Enola Holmes is already here. So just saying I am re-watching Steven Universe with Noah and the show is legitimately phenomenal. Like it's the most touching beautiful show and like if if you don't have kids really like touching beautiful stuff. You should watch it like if you like like musicals you will love Steven Universe. But if that I just do sorry, is it a musical there's music all over the others musicals all over the place not like every episode that's says significant number of them have or is it like SpongeBob level music? It's yeah, so it's like everything is an allegory in the show like and it's not hard to see how it fits into relationships or family life or whatever or accepting others or whatever. So like the songs will be about like the immediate plot and then have like this really like about like accepting trans people or like a month or like how to be in healthy relationship or like whatever and it's just and it always ends up working really well and it's really touching and like the first like six episodes but episodes are like ten minutes each the five or six episodes are nothing special and then once it hits it just never stops. Sinbad as a voice in the show have not that guy in a long time. Yeah, he's he's mr. Riley. So he's like one of the random times people who's in some episodes but like wage like there's a silly like, they're silly Town. Hi James and the Giant Space Opera and it's really it's really really good and like I recommend it to basically everyone but if you have a small child a child of like 558, you're not watching it and you care about your child growing up like kind I think you're doing yourself a disservice because the show is absolutely amazing at like humanity and kind of thing and it's really really beautiful. I've heard a lot of good things. It's on I believe both HBO Max and Hulu. Oh, okay is definitely on Hulu. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be on next also so like you should like everyone should check it out. I literally don't know anyone who's ever given the chance and didn't like it. Nice to meet ya right from that kindness to what is evil evil is a television show on Thursday. Yes, that is now on Netflix. It's Stars Mike Cotter who played Luke Cage and I who what's his name? He was on The Daily Show. What's his? What's his name? John Oliver know John Oliver has does the John Oliver show? Yeah. He was also on The Daily Show. Yeah. It's taking off it off on Manoj awesome Monday. Yes. Yeah him and then what an actress from West Palm world that is also escaping me but she died on one of the women who was murdered on that show, which I know is barely scratching the surface hot. Yeah. Yes, and it is created by the people who created The Good Wife. So if you want a show, that is batshit Goofy but has the production values of like a Prestige procedural like The Good Wife is the ideal show cuz it is in a ridiculously silly show that God has really high production values and that makes it even more fun to watch. It's a really good like Halloween show as well cuz it's going for that like spooky creepy Vibe, but it's of course a ridiculous premise the premises. The female lead is a psychiatrist who gets employed by a Priest and trainee who works at a Catholic priest is basically a devil's Advocates his job to prove Miracles and demonic possessions or wrong. Like he's supposed to confirm whether they are dead. They were true or not. And so that's what they do. That's the procedural element of it and there's just like all kinds of ridiculousness. Oh, yes and Michael Emerson from Lost plays the villain and so long. It's just so dumb and it's exactly hits. All the buttons I want to hit right now. There are a couple of like legitimately episodes on the creepier side or on the more intense side, but it's not because it's on CBS. It's not actually gory or like really off with those things. So that makes it to me more fun. Like I tend to find creeps and scares to be more enjoyable when they have restrictions rather than when you can go full-out saw or you know, all that kind of stuff so good portrait born. Yeah torture poor nor like or not like ridiculously gross like I watched The Grudge prequel Show on Netflix that with my wife and yeah, no that was way too much for me if not having limits off J horror. Yeah, but he was nothing like that. So it's it's again it has to be it has to meet cbs's broadcast standards. So if you're looking for something that's like kind of spooky fun goofing in in its premise and it's you know basic. Yeah, it's Prime minutes but takes itself seriously enough that you can invest in the characters. It's an ideal show. That's so and of course my cotters massively Chris Matic and handsome so you've got that as well. So There's a yeah, there's a reason why he's such a good Luke Cage. I might have to check that out during what's left of the month of October. I need some kind of creepy stuff to watch. All right, so we'll why are you sad about the theater industry? Yeah off what just one thing after another that there was the news. What was that now two weeks ago about Cinemark set two weeks. What's happening mark Excuse me. They're shutting their theaters down. I forget how many hundred like Regal Theaters. They run. I think it is that they're shutting down permanently. I mean no one says permanently on any of these. Yeah, they're largely renting the spaces out. No. So they're they're shutting stuff down Alamo here just announced after being able to reopen for about two months that they are having to close again until at least 20 21 AMC announced that they will be out of funds by the end of this year and so on and the Studio's continue to push wage. Well possible release this year into MM. What at least May of next year. I don't know. I I personally slapped the studios. I mean nobody is coming out of this like smelling like roses at least as far as Like their profit is concerned on how many bottle episodes do we have like how hard is it? Wait episodes of like T shows. No just be like, oh and the order like Casablanca is mostly a bottle movie. Right? Like know the problem is not content like, you know, there's actually a huge amount of content that they could release in theaters right now. Yeah, it's is literally a whole epic horrific idea for you to go into an indoor movie theater right now. Like you should just not do it like wage is ridiculously stupid for you to do a wait we're saying that that's a bad idea. We can definitely start sending kids back to schools. Right? Well, I just want to be clear that like, you know, my feelings about them too. We shouldn't be sending kids to school either. It's simply because it's a covet Factory like that's the problem and look my attitude towards this is bail out the workers wage in theaters, you know, the companies give rise and fall as they may what matters is the employees. So that's my attitude towards this the general Outlook. The solution has been the same since March and we've Decided not to do it, right like pay people enough to stay at home comfortably and close everything and just suck it up and like make sure that like everyone who has to work in essential business a super-safe do that for three months and then like shut down in Pockets contact trash about and pockets as necessary. Like this isn't some great mystery three-quarters of the world has done this in this fine in this back to the normal issue. Yeah. Also, I mean, I mean things just accelerated in Europe lately and sure just reading today that they have more cases than Bridge or the US and know I mean, so like all of it usually is just open like Japan has stadiums open at this. Well, it depends are having some troubles life here because we we have a plan to fly there in May but things are not looking good for that. So like cuz they're they're literal. They literally had a stadium show two days off. It's like like they're fine. They don't like us right fair enough, but like yeah other places aren't perfect and it's going to get worse weather gets colder like but we Spain Brazil and Peru are predicting particular epically bad. I mean, I also don't necessarily feel like it's like it's awful if large theaters fail because they largely prompted small theaters to fail. And it's not like it's not like that equipment is just like gone, right? So if you have a theater that likes it and Marcus is apparently closing down all the theaters and such right? It's like them an opportunity there for a new theater to take its place. And so I mean but like the work right like what'll happen is Amazon will get bored one day be like by the way to a movie theater. No ma'am. It sounds like a Disney is just whatever one of the one of the judges groups that we wanted to hate. The law that prevented took us. What is it vertical integration like integration. I always screw that up the law that prevented vertical integration the movie theaters expires December 31st, I believe or does it? Yeah, cuz Congress didn't renew it. Thank you President Trump and you know and the US Senate but So does he's basically just sitting waiting to buy all this Disney Warner Brothers will just vertically integrate like Amazon. I'm sure Amazon will to but the big ones is like Disney Disney wage to have a huge imprint any like all of them all of the futuristic movies like The dystopian Sci-Fi movies were like A company rules the world. It's just like Disney and Amazon eventually merge and roll everything, right? Yeah, there's Amazon and then like that's the dystopian Society eventually it'll total members who lives off, you know? Yeah. I'm just picturing him in Futurama style. Now the head in the jar and essentially have you took him as the guy from the first season of the Netflix show altered carbon. Okay. Yeah who's just you know, Los Angeles and Immortal. There's another great show that canceled. We needed a third season of yeah. Also, I did not realize while I was watching season two thought that the girl that plays Oh crud. Now. I can't think of the character Hamilton. Yes. Yeah, we talked about this when we you and I talked about this. Well, we talked about Hamilton. Oh, okay. That's fair then nevermind home. As long as Tyrell Wayland are like generous like benevolent super corpse, then everything will be fine boiler. They're not going to be off. But yeah, I'm actually much sadder about Broadway than the yeah. I don't know why especially like I go more than once or twice a year, but like it really makes me sad that Broadway is one such a it's just classic right? I mean like so speaking of somebody who has a lot of Community Theatre background and sits on a board of the community here. We haven't done any shows that you're either so it's not just brought the death of the entire like live theater is like we haven't had a live feeder performance in so long and there are only so many things you can do with online production licences. So we could like even perform an online musical right, but you can't because as if you buy the rights to do an online job All you can do is like perform the song you can't add any sort of interpretation or performance aspect of it other than performing the song. So it makes it very difficult for them. Even like smaller Theatres to create Revenue to maintain their spaces. So I mean brought the death of Broadway is the public face of it, but you're wrong also seeing a huge layer effect underneath it to like I'm sure we could ask Matt Jenkins about how things are going. Jenkins haven't talked to Jenkins and forever cuz he's I mean he he works for a theater. Yeah, so there's just a lot to it more than just like with the premier's Stage Theatre. It's just it's all of it. This weekend has were recording you are, Conn is cancelled. Although I keep hearing of the people who run that are evil from one of our mutual friends. They are pretty evil. So it's not helping me not sit here and drink whiskey and play Candy Crush. Oh, wow. I thought we really the normal thing is that we're all drinking while we podcast right? I do not anymore. Oh, okay. I can no longer. Like I'm too old to drink and teach the next day basically ever. I'm just going to class tomorrow, so I I I know my limit now so I don't tend to drink unless I want to get a nice Buzz so I'm a I'm actually there's a bar that can help back and like five teachers go sit in the outback and we get the like we're the only ones out there. So we'll be doing that this Friday. It's going to be very nice. Yeah, last time we can do that probably before it gets too cold for us to go outside, which means we can't do it anymore. So yeah. What's next I read X of Swords, which is the big X-Men crossover You're such good things about it. So I don't like it. I think the most uninteresting thing X-Men can do is Magic. It's worked exactly once and all of X-Men history for me Inferno and like this is like other world stuffing. It's like nineties late eighties nineties Excalibur based stuff and it doesn't kind of goofy and fun. I sort of liked it may not do goofy nor funds. So I'm also a Jai-Alai fan so that, it's it's not it's not comedic at all. Okay, so like if Trump totally seriously like melodrama them both at like everyone's on a quest to find swords. Gotcha. It's very like everyone's serious all the time. No one's smiling. And it's just it's really like it's if you like that kind of thing like that's fine. If you're like, I really respect when we're in some big like magic sci-fi story. You'll be into it. But like I I really that's not what I want excellent for I like the central metaphor. I like the pushing seen from any foreign changing things. But the magic is just like it doesn't do anything with the make those that I wanted to so like almost out on it. I'm curious and how do you feel about sixteen or two? I've never cared for 16. We just talked about that some last option, So, yep, I got that I'm seeing we can't now but just it keeps coming up. Yeah. No, I don't I don't hate magic stuff as a rule. Like I really enjoy a lot of Doctor Strange Comics. I really enjoy. How old is her on Saint men's on my favorite, except for I think we talked about that last week too. But we're last time we did this but I like there's things I go to like, I don't want like I don't want magic Spider-Man or magic X-Men's Stories, that's not why I'm there. I don't mind them as like as a single like Ark run type thing. But when it's going to be a giant crossover that's going to eat all the other books for a few months like we pay to a level of magic that I think like in fairness. I'm also the rare person who prefers not like the Space Opera like I really like the Phoenix Saga and basically every time they returned took our stuff. I'm like, I really don't need this either. I don't think the only person who thinks that I think there's a lot of writers who think they can do another she our story but it's the fans that don't think particularly are like we must wage. I do like the brood cuz I think the brood do enough interesting things within the concept that I'm fine playing with like ideas of disease and just alien is cool concept and there's a lien and X-Men is released interesting but like every basically every other space thing, I'm just like I don't need you. Like it's just that's not what the series is like and it's a cool aside and it's called the first time you do it but the more you go to that well the less interest I have in it. So I'm basically at all. So like hair or apocalypse and like they're big on here on file closed right now cannot possibly feel less like apocalypse to me like despite the character having the same name and look like he's just thousand percent a totally different character and like Idol like I've never loved the apocalypse but like if you're going to be like a no apocalypse is on the ruling Council of chrome and like cool but like you should at least be apocalypse. Everyone else is in character apocalypse is just like by the way, I'm now like really really extra Immortal and like a made from a million years and years, but Would like we've gotten like a million history of Apocalypse things. This is very Silly, I'm surprised they haven't gone down the mystical route with the buckle up support. They've done every other River them. So yeah fair enough. I'd almost have been happier. If it was just a Sinister story. Right like just be like Sinister decided to be a Mage and mess things up. Like, you know, that sounds like a pretty cool like what if what if Sister became the sorcerer Supreme. Well, it's almost it's like Doom right like doing was constantly like I messed with first hearing cuz science has like sources just type of science dammit. Like I could be Sinister doing that in like his Glam way and not be wildly interesting. It's just like Costa Rica has so much going on. I don't need this on top of it. Like a palpable have been interesting twice ever. Right? Well that is really casual well agent slopes, right? Like the first time Age of Apocalypse was great off his original X Factor run before we do anything about him is really good. Fir okay. I I will accept that like and then like he's okay and executioner song. It's just not about him. You're pushing it. But yeah, okay. Look I like it is early nineties apocalypse is like is safe. But and then like everything after that is completely on home unbelievably terrible and like this continues me hating the bumps. And also yeah, yeah. Should just left him dead never leave in central conceit of action is no one stays dead. Right? And I mean that's what I'm going to do it. Yeah. But I don't know they're all Mortal for now for what how much longer is Hickman going to be running the books. I mean, he has actually been doing it that long right like a year. It's been about a year yet. This is about the year anniversary. So hopefully page two two two more years. I mean, I would assume he has between two and three and yeah, this is like this is clearly the what was his Avengers one that was terrible before he did time runs out and New Avengers. I don't know he did he had a separate Infiniti have the crossover that was terrible. That was also partially like editorial being like we need a fan of suck because immunity Wars coming out too sure. It has to use Infinity in the title. So people get so but this is his Infiniti has like mid run across over that it's just like cool, but I don't need you. Yeah, that's fair. I mean, yeah Hickman's Xmas man is like super not interesting to me. So I'm I've been only falling on following it on the outside whatever like something truly ridiculous happens. I was like, oh I'll read a think piece about this. Or glaciers like hey, they they actually confirmed that Kitty Pryde is bisexual. It's like, oh cool. He did. It was great. That book is really good. Marauders is an absolutely excellent book. so like the whole thing about the X-Men that like it's kind of a gay allegory. Well the reserves only a civil rights allegory by the 80s. It starts to be a gay allegory. Yes. Yeah. I mean I remember 90s. It's very long. I mean X-Men is a is a you can project a lot onto it. That's yes part of why it is an enduring Mythos, I think. I mean a lot of the the queer subtext is really Chris Claremont though. It's a big well, he's so heavy-handed with it. Right? Yes, like if you go back and read it. It's like oh they real gay. Yeah. Well like Rachel Summers is like we're in Kankakee right like that song don't you dare make fun of Rachel Summers? I'm not making fun of her. She's supposed to be super gay. It's not like my reading she's meant as like gay she's meant as a leather Queen like we're not supposed to be like missing that she's a hundred percent coded that way. I wish they would just pick a code name for her and stick with it though. They've been running with one in whatever book she's in that cuz it's a long time. All right, here's what makes for a long time wasn't it? Yeah, they stopped using that around the time that excellent did the my single least favorite Marvel crossover ever Avengers versus X-Men Avengers versus X-men had a very good Legacy. The crossover itself was really bad, but the probably the last time I really enjoyed the Marvel Universe was that whatever they branded it. What do they call it all new Marvel or was Marvel Now the one before that whatever that was like that's when they did. That's Young Avengers came out of that. That's when The Thor that's when Aaron took over Thor or does that mean either was right when he took over Thor then or that's when Jane Foster took over a can't remember, which of those two it was I think it was when Aaron over floor in general. That's when Hawkeye came out. That's when sure none of that has anything to do with that the series of Avengers versus X-men wage, but which looks like this is like a little worst characterization of Marvel heroes, like it made simple Point like not or two was bad Civil War one was terrible. Well either I enjoyed the story of one enough at least that I overlooked some of the characterization to was bad from both story and characters. I mean still feel bad as X-Men which ignores as Avengers versus X willing to die on is Marvel has not had a good Cross over in the twentieth century 25. I disagree secret word. Secret Wars is good. But like read The Core Series and trade. It's like read the timer off and just the Hickman stuff and it's really good. I mean the problem with that is that you can't read just yes, you can if that's your secret question. I did I subscribe to just secret wage. You can't you can't do that. You needed all the other Hickman stuff to understand how it got there and what's going on you you actually needed like what like a 40 issue run or whatever to really understand. What's that? Right? You know, you just you really need you just need a Time runs out into like would you like twelve issues but like you need a Time Runs Out in says he Brewers, okay. Even I mean if Secret Wars is the is this the ceiling the floor is alone before is like everything else. I don't think there's been another one that you decent wage familiar with Roy on this like it's just it's started with Avengers disassembled which were coming up. Next year is the twentieth anniversary. So they're going to disassemble every this again because system roll. It might be a little later now. She doesn't Force there's a little bit later. Okay, excuse me. So we're not quite there yet started the what is the last good Marvel crossover? Cuz I'm pretty sure the ants before that and print your Dancers just Age of Apocalypse age was so good. Yeah, but like like that's it and then like there's like the the yearly X-Men crossovers off but there's no like good Marvel crossover. Actually Age of Apocalypse was just an X-Men one, wasn't it? Yeah, but like Marvel didn't really have crossovers until I get off. Onslaught big one when the whole line did it they were much weaker through a long time on like individual books. Just having they were like d c ROM which tend to do every until the infinite the Post David crisis-era kind of like, you know, every five years they would do like a continuity cleanup crossover and now every year they do a continuity home invasion wasn't terrible only God will secret of you know, a VX was worse than secretive sure, but like actually worse than everything. No. No, it wasn't worse than fear itself. Oh, this was not any good. CV axles were some for yourself yourself in offensively bad offended. Yeah, I'm scrolling through the Crossovers since they are all dead Infinity Gauntlet is excellent is was in the nineties. So it's yes. I'm just going to throw this out. There was always this lead. He's pretty sure Marvel is just not good without X-Men. I mean, yes Avengers has spent the move High majority of its history isn't terrible. Like as somebody who buys primarily Marvel Comics and I've been re-reading them cuz I've been sitting on myself lately staring at me and it's covid-19. Because there's only two runs a daredevil actually like sir. Frank Miller's first. And yeah, I think it's Frank Miller Miller is the one that I have. I don't know I just I found by the way most of the ones I enjoy are like vertigo or image image just has a ton of great ones. I mean modern image is just like a late 90s vertigo now. Yeah, right basically. Hey, I found one other Marvel event. I didn't hate one over be crossover. I kind of like choke seat wasn't bad like, oh there was a terrible. Seems fine. Like he was a single contained story like was like Norman Osborn hates Asgard. Let's go have war with Asgard and like I was fine with that. Yeah, like I said, it was like I guess I guess it was just like firm like again, that's okay. So we've added two things to the ceiling so we have, you know, anything else before I'm literally going through Wikipedia worth of Rome's. Oh my God. That was the Age of Ultron. Let's not forget that Anything simply behave lied about the single worst the single worst a secret Empire which one secret Empire not see Captain America off, right? Right, right. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, well that goes without I mean that concept I had like I'd stuff was okay. Yeah. The main series is on like they literally skipped two notches in charge of America off. Looking like after Americans. Yeah well, but they island is also like really bad. Yeah, but that's not another like Universe wide cross over that was just the spider cross over Marvel had a good cross over Marblehead their best crossover Aaron ever in the twentieth century violation like a nihilation. See, I don't think I guess is a crossover the characters weren't really all having like ongoing books. Do you know what I mean? Like there were the like they were like six mini-series that were built in and then let it I mean I read a real time so like to me it's not the same as like House of em, like in Iraq did the entire Marvel universe or all these other kind of things. You know what I mean? We're all the attention like I remember I was working a comic historian dilation came out like we had to push a nihilation like on people suck it wasn't it. Also coming out simultaneously with one of the other big crossovers, maybe Civil War. Yeah several more. Yeah, so it was literally goes on Earth and like they're like you have to join somewhere. He's like fuck you and flies alone. Yeah, like you had a nihilation books on people be like, oh, you know, hey support war is late yet again. Like they can't get an issue out on time off for vacation. There's more 80s crossovers than I thought they were there were a lot like The evolutionary war or The Saga of the serpent Crown Atlantis attacks for know obviously parental sauce. Inferno was only one acts of vengeance is really bad The evolutionary was okay. It's a great I mean Crisco Ward that 70s technically, isn't it? Yeah. Yeah. That wasn't really even across. It's just visit Avengers story line, I guess. I mean, here's where I here's where I I mean, I just think Marvel has some amazing individual runs. I think there's a lot less coherency to Marvel's runs. I think particular once you leave the lead dick KO Kirby era then there is in D C ROM, but I think that I mean like Steve englehart's Captain America Mark rules Captain America a bunch of eighties Avengers stuff off is first off like Avengers as largely internal. I just some good stuff in the eighties quarterback Saga. Come on. My son is very good like a cold war. That's also good. That's big on that seventies. So yeah, so I just think that worth looking. Yeah, I forgot. Yeah plant holders. All right, hold was actually really good. Okay play a Hogwarts. Yeah, it was good. It was a short right? Wasn't it? Was that like just one pick this user exactly remember being very short? Package, I think you're wrong, but I can't find it on this list. For some reason. It's just occurred to me. Yeah, Planet Hulk was really good. I can't believe I like something less than a VX you you always find some other comic that I mean, it's always something worse. Is there anything worse than not sleeping in America takes over. America yeah, identity identity crisis no identity crisis is not worse than that. No, it's not off this terrible, but I don't do get it handled some things poorly. But it was at least morally like really poorly. It was worried about I mean as long as bad but not see Captain. I mean the question is like brutally mishandling sexual assault and conflating superhero nonsense with sexual assault. Is that better or worse than Captain but the Nazi kept Americans shipped even the interesting parts, right? Like we didn't get to watch them take over. It was like God. Yeah not only issue. They're in charge of everything and like and like now there's different factions in America and like there's wastelands that we gave two different villains and like they didn't bother explaining it over there to like this happened wage. Mean issues. Sorry my bad. The reason why I'm planning Hull cleaner is cuz Planet Hulk was not a crossover World War Hulk was across. Okay. All right, which lasted from made in November 2007 one of my world war Hulk which one of my favorite Marvel series ever be incredible Hercules. That was a good thing. Is that the one that did it also lead to the reboot of Doctor Strange from what's his name? The guy who does saga? Why is his name off and on I don't I think that was literally just like a random miniseries. I mean I should change was sort of out of circulation for a long time, but he existed but was just like have a book didn't have any chance to really knew he is definitely someone that Bendis brought back. Yeah Bryan Cave, there we go, but these councils across over these are all right. Well, we have gone really far and lastly do when we're in the comment section where where was a video games? Okay one white I what is white I actually not a not a video game. I just wanted to throw a quick advertisement for a solo RPG that I created out there real quick. It is dead. Is inspired heavily by Edgar Allan Poe The Pit and the Pendulum has Hotel heart. So it's a it's a one-page. The name is Andres like a journal writing RPG the premise being your prisoner in this prison through a crack in your cell. There is a long white. I that watches you that you can feel its gaze whether it can really actually see you or not. You don't know and you are dealing with wage that and your memories and the reasons why you may have been imprisoned and kind of seen what story you stumble onto. I'm pretty happy with the theme and little twist. I made to the the system where you eventually have to reveal that certain parts of your story were were dead. Is whether you were confessing things to the eye and lying and hopes to get out or whether you were lying to yourself about your role and things who knows. But anyway, I've been very pleasantly surprised the idea kind of kind of took me by fire. And so I hammered it out in about 24 hours. And yeah look it up on our drive-thru RPG or itch. IO having seen it. It looks really fun. Thank you. That's all I got on that one. Of course. I did also put in the next entry. I'm not sure who put the heart next to it. Buys me. Nice. I did put Mario Kart 8 on now that I officially have my own switch off. Yeah, I went a little crazy which is on sale for 40 bucks right now. Go to it. I already bought lost sphear and started on it cuz I was seeing reviews were saying play a constructive country houses. It is. Yeah definitely houses over today. No tomorrow to yeah, so you'll get $40 three houses. Just do it trust us. Without without derailing the Mario card entry too much. I want to say that Mario Kart 8. I mean I have a very soft spot for the in 64 Mario Kart and I will not play the hell out of that to this day, but my record eight might be the perfect Mario Kart, it's so good. The only thing I have to say about the N64 Mario Kart is that it is great until you try and play with four people and the council cannot handle running the game and the music and so it does not for the music and never noted that and then I'll file and oh, it is super weird. So yes Mario Kart 8 is probably at least favorite like if we want to actually play a game together on the TV, that's our go to cuz like she loves Animal Crossing, but Mario Kart is also the only game that she can log. Yeah, yeah. Yeah Kristen I can get her to play as well and she definitely not consistently not always but she she definitely beats me some I don't know if we have a big enough sample size for me to say who wins more off. So I just have a question. Is that are you are you want on biking or cart gang? I'm on card game fun playing. I'm playing a game. I want to drive a cart. So I have a quick question. Yeah, how many houses are three of them read three of the the international name is not three houses right off will lives in Missouri. I'm pretty sure that's still American props to Glazer for saying mazura. I love it. I just call it misery of God. Yeah, most of us here do too. No, I think it's still called Fire Emblem three houses internationally. Is it really? Yeah, I'm pretty sure I thought it was four seasons. No, that is all the game besides. There's no Four Season mechanic in it. So I can't know let's not the Japanese name. The literal translation is Windflower snow moon off. Okay, but as far as I can tell that's the international name. Okay. Well, that's the whiskey talking to me then either either way. It's one of the top ten RPGs I've ever played you should get it because yes, it is fantastic unbelievably amazing. Yes, I've definitely heard very very many good things from you guys and I beat it and immediately just restarted on another route. Yep. Yep, and then I didn't get through a third one cuz the beginning of the game is too similar, but like the second time it was so super interested. Poor blue lights or blue lights. Look the problem with that game is there's only one correct ending, you know all the other end just off the individual even be there on my preferred group. So just saying my way and actually stops the conspiracy including the The evil guy from the beginning like dream you have coming back is at all Empress now, so that's all I'm saying. No, she's dead. Yeah. I know that's a bad ending like immediately just like the nearest Target or the user. These are some super hot takes bad. Just there's no hot take cuz there's just one clear. Correct answer. That's yes, I I agree with you but I don't I do not think that this is the most popular opinion. So I think there's a sizable minority that are that are correct like in so many things off is it perhaps a silent minority it know in my experience. It's not silent. All right, either way get the game and tell us what your favorite is off. Okay. It's going to happen winded Know It Anyway, let's see. What's next. Oh Boulder Skate 3 bath Yeah, it's an early access. I've talked about on the show before I won't provide any spoilers cuz it really access game but I will say that the fundamental gameplay Loops are extremely strong. It is encouraging that it works on my oldest graphics card, even though it technically doesn't meet the requirements now Marion love it. Yeah, it's quite plausible actually for Early Access, although for friend of this show Sid has recently stopped working, but they will probably start working again soon when they patch it again, but the Courtney Loops are really good. It's a very excellent adaptation of D&D 5th edition, even if they haven't worked out some of the more fiddly things about the Indy 5th edition like the rest system, which I never have really liked while playing Dungeons & Dragons 5th edition much less playing a video game version of it. I think, you know, they'll eventually figure out a less fiddly. Way of doing it. I'm sure through the e a process. So yeah, it's very very promising game when the full version comes out in probably what 12 to 8:16 months it will be very very very very good. I'll probably keep us updated cuz I'll be playing it on and off for the rest of the a wage. But definitely if you are the kind of person who like me cannot wait for this amazing Next Generation Western RPG get it if you can stand. Yeah, if you can stay off and say don't get it is unnie a game like it's going to crash it just going to do weird things. I find most of the crashes and weird shit to be Charming like when suddenly like I kill a character off of bugs out and they just become a black Splash on the screen that you like walk around and it's like it moves with you. Like I find that very Charming but other people's, you know, mileage may vary so I don't need to speak but definitely promising what its course systems are extremely solid. The combat is really good the characters the NPC's are all really strong if a game. Clarion last BioWare more like the Divinity characters. So Divinity original sin 2 characters be precise. So if you really like divinity original sin 2, you'll really like this if you like BioWare games, you'll probably like it. So Samuel the Star Wars Squadron person, right? Yes, that is me that's next on our list. My graphics card was not able to run this. So I am very happy for you Roy odd, but my card my venerable card is probably going to be retiring soon. How how ever did go ahead and pick it up on PlayStation and it's a very enjoyable flight simulator very much a spiritual successor to the old like Thai Thai Fighter X Wing Wing commander games and I've really enjoyed it. I haven't had enough like as much time as I would like to play it in terms of the matchmaking like the multiplayer, which I guess it's mostly multiplayer. There is a short campaign and there are enough challenges within those missions that like, you could foreseeably go back and replay it many times table. Many who replays Rogue Squadron probably once a year it is definitely going to be one of my like go to campaigns. Like if I just want to sit and have a day of playing session of gaming. I like flight Sims and this definitely fits that niche. I hope that we get I hope it's still supported. Like I am not one of those who are clamoring for DLC. It was released as a standalone full game. But I do hope that like they they are doing an operations or like basically seasons of play. I think it'd be cool if they kept doing that and maybe really something like aesthetic content through that but otherwise, I mean if even if they don't it's still great. I wish I wish that they had private matches though. They're probably implement that eventually I would think so. There's really no way to do any sort of competitive play without it. So yeah, I've got a I've got a slop of sadness level five games appears to be closing level five is an awesome company is very sad to see them go. Not sure I know that went off and I mean okinii person people. Oh, yeah, no Kuni Dragon Quest 8 Dark Cloud 2 Professor Professor Layton Yokai Watch their are truly talk to you watch with a money-spinner. I mean Dragon Quest I could live with that. But well, they don't make them about a year just incredibly wrong, but the they haven't made an inquest since 8, so like they made they made like three. I think I'm going to be up there North American one's not yeah, but life. Supposedly like they just not releasing anything North America. Sure. That's a bummer Dark Cloud is a huge draw for me for a Playstation Two. I haven't played Dark Cloud two, but like it's supposedly one of the best action RPGs ever. Now they would did Dragon Quest 8 and 9. Meat is the third best Dragon Quest like unless I. Doing the Professor Layton ones anymore that they won't release any more Professor Layton's they haven't released a press statement forever Professor. Yeah, no future games outside of Japan. Huh, bro. Galaxy was a freaking awesome game. God damn dark was great. That's when Levin's favorites. Yeah, bummer. Hyundai released recently doesn't seem to really yeah, you know Cooney is seems like the latest like real big one. Yeah unicorn a game this year Yokai Watch or I guess. Look at watch for apparently made a lot of money in Japan, but whatever. Yeah, I mean, it's only in Japan. I'm only really heard of the first one coming to the u.s. So I don't know if any of them on the later one or more recent ones have come in the US. Still Still Still Still makes me sad. Oh, yeah. I have recently got back into some jrpgs. I picked up bravely second cuz I played Bravely Default years ago and like it's charming and its own classic RPG, but somewhat modernized way. So I like that type of thing. I've heard largely mediocre ish things about bravely second graders of it don't like it and they're making the right sequel much personal into the pie kind of can see that like, it's it's scratches the itch of the first game and it made me reorder the first game cuz I don't know what happened to my first copy. I'm pretty sure that I sold it and regret that decision. But it's it just reminds you enough of the first one to go back and play the first one and that's probably fine. Have you played what I think is the single best RPG I've ever played radiant radiant Historia. I have not you assuming you have access to a DS or 3DS. You really really should. All right. I hope it is. I think you literally like the single best RPG I've ever played radiant. I don't necessary perfect. Chronology is the 3DS version. That's the one I played but the DS version were similar enough that you'll be fine. We'll is supposed to play it. But yeah, you do you do keep pushing for it it like if you like Tara PG like it off Chrono Trigger. Well, we'll might not like it then because he he likes the wrong Chrono Chrono cross is a good game. It's just like if you treat them across like it's not related to grow towards a perfectly fine game. I wish they'd I wish they had cut the number of characters in it in a third so they actually could develop some of them that it's a perfectly fine. Like it's a weird decision game. Right? Like you can only level at certain spots. Like there's like I don't love making weird decisions as to make your decisions and it felt like the game did but it's not very good game with an absolutely amazing soundtrack. All this overtime is making my wallet bleed and I'm going to buy it radiant, Historia. All right it like Jake like genuinely. I've never claimed Refugee quite as good. Yeah. It the two big the three, I guess big SNES games. and and three houses I think are likely to be refugees and The Shadowhunters. This looks wonderful. It's so unbelievable. You should yeah, that's great. All right. Well if we're ready to move on two drinks, I added this one gopher. It's a Shameless plug for the golden company's summer. Drink of choice are our classic drink, which is the bitter steel. Mhm. I made honey syrup this weekend cuz I've been watching a lot of how to drink and I was like, yeah, I feel like making something fun this weekend and we'll is still a very good drink after. And so for people who don't know what this is and they're still listening at this point. It's 1 and 1/2 ounces of scotch. One ounce of honey syrup went out to lemon juice went out to pack will juice and some orange bitters you throw that into a Shaker with ice and pour it and then sprinkle some clothes to taste. I will drink my Scotch great. Thank you. Yes, I bought teacher's Scotch which is like a super cheap scotch just for the month. I mean, yeah, that's what mixed drinks are for right? All right fair enough. Let's end with everyone doing one Halloween recommendation like a warm bath or anything you want. I know what mine is. And I think I needed more time. How how go first while you guys figure out what your hours will be. Mine is you can either get the smes one translate in English or the gas station one one, but mine is a video game. It is Clocktower Clock Tower is a point-and-click adventure game where you were being chased by scissor man, a serial killer who murder people you guessed it with scissors, but it's a point-and-click adventure game. You can not fight back. All you can do is run in the second here that clock back scissorman music your heart will start sneezing and you will Panic it's incredible. Okay. And we got one yet. I mean if you are a fan of text games text like adventure games sunless sea is also pretty good. It's a good good time singing wage and has this spooky Vibes. You essentially are playing as a as a ship captain off on the ocean beneath the main world and Fallen London and you sail around the sea and it's full of perils like I see monsters and other rival pirate ships and it's a horror game. It has horror elements and throughout the time you're trying to balance your sanity and your boss chips compliments and the rations that they need to survive at sea. It's incredibly frustrating at times and there is a learning curve. So I guess I would just suggest looking up how to at least half way the game, but the content in the stories are really fun. Okay. I'll go ahead and throw one out outside of the video game mold. If you're looking for some Halloweeny stuff to to watch it's still a relatively recent show me that I used to talk about before but I say if you have not seen scream Queens yet go look it up. I believe it's on Hulu still and give it a watch. It is just a fun a spoof of various, you know, slasher flicks and that sort of thing that balance is pretty well off in comedic but not necessarily being a comedy along with the all of the general tropes of how long in a film course. It's a serious which stretched out a lot more but it's got a lot of a lot of great folks in it. Of course the names of virtually everyone is not going to come to me right now, but There's a lot of crowd we Glee alumni. There's Carrie Fisher's daughter John stamos's in season two. There's a lot of fun people so often scream Queens lots of fun. And everyone knows Halloween is my favorite holiday. I celebrated with great fervor and excitement every single year my entire life, but I will give off an on ironic or truly answer and that is the was actually Spiro but we'll said the TV adaptation of scream is actually off markedly quite good. It does a good job of balancing horror and humor and modern CW Style TV storytelling tropes. So if that is the kind of stuff that you are into which I definitely am I would highly recommend it is a lot of fun and is occasionally legitimately scary. There we go. Might be Halloween. Well, we have it up. I think we'll have an episode before Halloween Glazer. We will have one of the week of Halloween month. Yeah, that won't be released until after Halloween, right? This will be a lot of police before that's fairly less. I double up and then we get back to releasing the same week we record month, but you know, I already loaded magic. All right, and with that we're out folks. Off off off. My wife is arguing with a cat. Sorry that is not a good argument to have you will always lose. He's just sitting there on the table staring at her meowing and she's like yelling back at him because I don't know.

We actually had a little bit of Buffalo Trace whiskey. While we're doing this podcast not much just a little bit buffalo. Trace whiskey is older than America. How about this? They've been distilling whisky since seventeen. Seventy three that's crazy and ever since the early American pioneers filed a Buffalo Herds to the Kentucky River. The operated during prohibition with a permit to make whiskey for medicinal purposes wink wink. It's fucking great. Whiskey I just love the fact that it's a company that's been around since seventeen seventy three. It's American America. That's as American as it gets fucking buffalo on it right. Family owned fiercely independent. They don't compromise quality. The whiskey in the barrel is not ready to go into the bottle does. Not they taste them. All Buffalo trace matures twice as long as most Bourbon. The American buffalo represents their uncompromising values dope animal. I mean it's the only bourbon with balls literally on the label. You can see buffalo sack on the. I'm looking at it right now. And it's made by Harlen Wheatley. Who is a respected master distiller? He makes Buffalo Trace With a corn Rye and barley and he also makes Wheatley Craft Vodka. Harlan likes to challenge conventional thinking and he experiments with different methods and his thousands of different experimental whiskey barrels. Some don't turn out great but that's a risk. It takes years to find out but some of their experimental whiskies have been named the best in the world challenging. The status quo is worth the risk. It's great whiskey Great Bourbon.

Protect yourself my guest. Today is One of my best friends. You might know him from the sober October podcasts. That we've done together might know him from Bert cast. You might know him from two bears. One Cave is new podcast. That he's doing with my one of my other best friends Thompson Gura. They have a podcast they do. I think they do every week right. He has a new netflix special. That is out right now. It's called. Hey big boy. It's fucking hilarious. I love him to death. Please give it up for the great and powerful Bert Kreischer Rogan experience. Podcast live cheer roll. Yeah why the world is on fire. We might as well get a little little fucked up. I've been clean clean for seven days. No booze no nothing. No nothing good. Your face looks good. I know it's starting to see direct difference when I quit drinking. Do you feel trapped by your image. Your party image. I would never of said yes until this week. I've exhaled for the first time in a very big way like where I was like no road. I'm not doing social media. I mean I'm doing stories. Stop I'm not trying to put like when things shutdown a kind of shut down with America and I was like yesterday man. I sat in a Hammock. Sober for like fucking two hours just relaxed. It is nice to be home for a while. It is nice. You realize what a beating the our lifestyle takes on your body the travel. And then if you're booze into the travel and the boozing together so we should tell everybody what we learned today. I'm revising my thinking about this virus because of Michael. Yo Michael Yokada Michael. Yo is healthy as fuck. He's he's not he's not any high risk group like he's not he doesn't have any pre existing conditions. He's in shape and he got it and he got pneumonia to and he said it was a double combination and he thought he was going to die and he was in the hospital for over a week and four days ago. He said he thought he was going to die. That's fucking terrifying. Because Michael IOS healthy. He's not some eight year old man. I talked to my friend Dr Peter Tia. He's a physician and he gets to swim from Maui. Yes he's swimmed all the islands he's a fucking straight up savage so his take i. This is my question to him. I said this is crazy. Shit what is your take on. How so many people experience very few symptoms but others get wrecked and he said I still think most people below fifty five sail through it. I've had two patients get it a shitty cold and loss of sense of smell and taste which probably returned soon but still a small fraction of these folks get hurt I know docked taking care of a twenty eight year old fitness instructor on a ventilator in New York City today why he said maybe some genetic predisposition we know. Blood types matters. A is the worst. Oh is the best based on antibodies. He said I'm positive he says but I don't think that explains more than some of it maybe shit like vaping. He said still too soon to tell He is a straight up. No nonsense no bullshit guy and I listened to everything he says so when guys like hammer concern I get concerned. And he's concerned he's had the disease nothing that he said it's weird that it seems that people who spend more time with this get it worse. He's like it's not like you know like like doctors and hospitals with prolonged exposure. Get it really bad. Nurses in hospitals with prolonged exposure seemed to get really bad whereas some people get it and they don't get it bad it's weird. It's a very very strange disease. According to doctors and I think we're still trying to figure this out you know. Wow it's it's one of those things where everyone's just sort of absorbing the information as it comes in and you gotta be open to adjusting your opinions and my opinions were. I really was concerned with old people and I was concerned with sick people now after Michael. Y'All Mike Okay. This is not that straightforward there. There might be some some other crazy factors here like for some people. Yeah like Idris Elba. Who looks fantastic? You know fine but maybe other people are going to have a real hard time with it. Like Michael Yo like Michael has not sickly guys. A big robust guy. That's a spooky. I mean you your podcast with The ostrich chick chicken little that scared the fuck out little fucking sitting in the back of my tour bus and I hear this. I'm like I've had a few cocktails ahead a joint. Let's go to bed. Oh cool. Who's this guy? I wouldn't mind here in a little bit about that. Holy first thing I did I told Jamie I I did. I sat up in bed. And it was Goo- that motherfucker. I was like. He wrote a book didn't he fuck that Guy? I I was. I was so freaked out in that. Fucking podcast crazy about oster home. Is He predicted? This shit literally specifically to where it was going to come from. He was very vitamin full. Dude was a great podcast but man. It's I'll tell you right now. Joe You said. You said So guys are overweight. The drink a lot the smoke talking to you. You know that right by the way I thought you were heard I'm talking to you. How do you want to say it? But it was like piecing together at all my good friends. Who's my one from? Take Care of himself the worst. It's you me it's you. I quit cigars. We'd beautiful booze. I'm going to drink now but still okay man. You stopped this bus now and got healthy and just drank water only water from month. You know you could pull this shit together. It relatively speaking compared to fucking savagery. You do your physique to your body to your form to your your your being by does Downing Booze constantly your great like most people would be a really fucked up if they were in your position that we were all. We were marveling when you ran the marathon. Like this motherfucker party so hard and he just ran a marathon. It's crazy you're a very like I hate to use the same Morgan. What's right were robust? You're a robust guy and the reason why you're able to endure all this booze is because you're robust but if you didn't do the booze man you'd probably be stuck because whatever the fuck is keeping you going with all this booze. Imagine what kind of pouring sugar water into fucking sixty eight charger. If you clean up clean up replaced the heads that Hemi will her? You know like you you must be you. You have to have great. Jeans does no other way. I mean how old you now. Forty seven forty seven. Relatively speaking compared to the fucking savagery you do boozing. I posed with you. It's it's it's a rough go. No it's like smoking we joey ideas or with B real from Cypress Hill to stop. You're not in the league. You don't roll with Hicks and Gracie and expect to tap him L. You don't smoke weed with be real. I didn't I didn't see I never. I never see that. And then I took normand on to Europe with me. Mark Norman. And more Norman's boozer yeah man. Two days in and he tapped out addicted to Ambien he was. He is the funniest violent being. I really love him. He's a real comic man. I cherish guys like him. Andrew Schultz attend these young guys coming up or everything to me Chris coming up to you. Krista stuff no I do not know him and I know of him Giggle Fun Walk Very Funny Guy. There's a good crop a good crop of real comics. Who honor this thing that we do? So it's weird thing we do. You know it's like what we're doing very strange game of saying funny silly shed and then trying to make each other laugh and then but understanding what we're doing and don't say oh you really mean that or oh? You can't joke about this like none of those guys do that. 'cause we know the game the game is to be funny. That's the game. Be Funny and sometimes you ridiculous. Shit to be funny. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it falls apart. Sometimes it blows up in your face sometimes. It knocks it out of the park. And so you've gotta take those risks and Heathrow in every now and then it's the people that are in this thing that understand what we're doing it appreciate that those are the most fun people to hang out with because you never have to think about them getting upset at you for saying something or them taking you literally or seriously or them not even taking you seriously but calling you. Want to pretend they're taking you seriously. So they convert she signal. Which I've seen before but I've never seen from anybody funny. No it's never from anybody funny. It's always from these kind of half ass sort of half cooked versions of a comic. It's never been telling you know. I got new compensation with Ra about whether what the parameters of a joke. Where after the whole Kobe Bryant Shit Yeah and he said something that made me like fucking stutter staff. He was like he was like it. You can't say it's not a joke. He kept arguing against. There's not a joke. Can't say it's not a joke. It was a joke a joke and I was just saying Tom. Knight said that we didn't think it was funny when it was joke and I wrap my head around. I remember one time. Isla had a dance on fifth grade and they did it on stage right and And they were saying you know just you know they were. The parents can be all boys may dance with boys girls. Maybe dance with girls. We just want all the parents to know that were cool. That and make sure everyone's cool with that a little preamble and I said yeah as long as they're white man. Some parents got so upset. Like really really. They don't have a sense of humor. And you you being serious guys. I'm joking obviously wanted a professional comedian on dancing. Girls WanNa dance with boys and and that's what I start laughing at that. No no no. That kind of more mad BECO- can have the specialist just times. I fuck inside the worst parents weird band because some of them are super cool. You know and if you get lucky like I know a really a really nice group a super cool parents of like my kids friends and it's a pleasure when we get together. It's fun like I. Enjoy their company or kids. Enjoy each other's company and we have great times together. It's so I feel so fortunate for the friends that have acquired this way. You can find cool people. That aren't comics. They do exist. You know you can get lucky but the problem is people that take themselves too seriously or people that are under the Iron Fist of office politics and office behavior and business behavior. Those people get get consumed because they're there every day and when you're there you've gotTa Bullshit every day you wearing a tie. You got slippery bottoms to your shoes. The whole thing's nonsense right you and you're you have to speak and behave certain way and you can't make jokes about anything and sometimes you're working with girls and you work with guys and everybody's flirting with each other. There's all this crazy office. Politics people trying move up the ladder and why they're trying to move up the ladder. They have to make sure they don't say anything that's going to sabotage their careers trying to be funny or just you know getting a little out of hand at the company. Christmas party cocktails ruining your career. These people are always on the edge. There always suppressed so when they're around someone who's not who's just cuts loose like no no. He's Dan Line. No jokes but they but looking at. You could have thought you were serious. Oh that's where it's dangerous because it might not be able to switch gears. Well who sometimes people. If they knew you were going to joke around by something. That'd be fine but then you say something like Oh my God is he serious. I have to stand up and denounce racism now. Yeah Yeah there's those that's the craziest part about have especially. I've gone through my oldest daughter's in tenth grade. My youngest is in eighth. Those formative that K. Through five those that. That's the fun run of being a parent and as you meet a lot of parents that you don't know yeah and you say Shit and you find out remember. One time we were drop off. And we found out we got an email about some which McCall at and the MOM Senate from her work account and it was a fucking porn star. Draw me a couple of DAD's look watching the fuck being like. Take a look at this. That's that's one thing that's tough to switch gears from the guy or a girl. If you're a porn star you want to go legit. It's a tough. It's a tough road. Is the man for whatever reason it's weird. It's like if you accidentally did porn but when you clearly like Kim Kardashian. It hasn't heard her at all. Not at all essentially did porn. And everybody's like yeah but there was no studio attached to it was really independent. She's like clerks porn. And this idea that somehow another magically got online like what happened like there's an ongoing process but when you see Like a mainstream porn star. That's been in like a tons of movies that very rarely do they make a jump and then just do regular move. Traci lords is a bit of an example of a an exception. Yeah but she had some studied. She did a John Waters Movie. Yeah she did. Some stuff Kim Kardashian is porn one name in that. Good how dare you it wasn't you didn't see your tits really. You never saw her pussy like just like her sucking his Dick. That's good enough. I don't think you should ask for too much more time. Launch one movie. She was better. It's like her first set. You know you realize like you get out of the gate. Too Strong. Didn't have a good closer. She's she's not like you know it's not World Class Professional I watched Perez Hilton's Porno fucker with Herbie's allegedly allegedly. Wow catcher on a good day. Right turn what. That's what when you saw fucking Florida. All those kids go on spring break. Those are people that would raw dog it with Herbie's and not tell you about this is about me. This is my vacation. I'm in this other group chat and these comics like these kids are so stupid. How could it be so irresponsible this and that and I just type it in all caps day? Want TO FUCK. That's not they don't care they want to fuck and they're drunk in Mexico like get out of here. You WanNa fuck where there in Florida on spring break. I would have been there in Cancun or they're in people in Texas. There was this thing about these Texas kids and there were there were piled onto this this area together. It's like this. I don't know looks like some outdoor party area but they were just stacked in there like sardines and people like Holy. Fuck like yeah. Yeah you you didn't. You didn't raise your kids right even if you did even if you did if you hang around with other kids are fuck ups. They're gonNA fuck up all did that. I was involved in a lot of really stupid shit because I was around some kids. That were sketchy when I was a kid. You know like especially when I lived in Jamaica Plain Jamaica. Plain was like this This area that we only lived there for about maybe less than two years. It was like a year and a half and it was like an urban section of Boston. That's since been gentrified. Apparently apparently is nice now back then. It was scheduled. It was like all kinds of like everyone Irish kids Italian kids black kids Puerto Rican kids but no one was getting good. Parenting everyone's parents smoked. People were drunk. Delayed their chaos people there like it was weird. There were wild people at the whole block was filled with wild people that were in bad people. There wasn't like a crime infested dangerous neighborhood who sketchy and every one was a mess. Everyone on my block my next door neighbor. We've talked about this before they were a punk. Rock band called death in the shopping mall and they used to play downstairs in the basement and so they have these thick layers of carpet set up in the basement so they had carpet over the door carpet. Ceiling many many many many many layers and these guys would fuck it. Go off in their pimple pip. Pepe playing guitar and Fuck and screaming and I was. I Guess House Eleven. No thirteen thirteen years old because it was It was middle school right before I went to high school. It was thirteen years old and I was like fascinated because it was just becoming a teenager. The living next door to these fucking savages these savages. They're just plain crazy. Fucking loud music and you didn't see punk rock people a lot back then. I remember. There was a kid at the bus. Stop on they'll maybe and he had a punk rock haircut and every morning guard driving to school. We'll look at him a mock his mom that about a Mohawk. Why May I went from San Francisco to Gainesville Florida? Which was a college town? Went to Gainesville. Yeah I was in Gainesville Florida when I was eleven to thirteen you and River Phoenix Ted. Bundy okay too. But so we lived there for a little bit now is like just kind of college. People and the apartments we lived in just regular folks. It was Nothing crazy you didn't really see too much craziness as far as crime or a sketchy folks. Everyone was pretty normal differences different backgrounds. But you know just people apartment life but then we moved to Boston man. Those kids were wildaid break into fucking warehouse buildings and they were in the everyone knew how to steal a car thirteen. Th there were all smoking. Everyone was smoking immediately. Went into this crazy. Environment of WHOA. Whoa WHOA WHOA. I was like my dog Marshall and like a room full of like rabid German shepherds. They'll say hey. Can we talk this out? I'm from an apartment complex now. Used to like semi urban kids. That's an interesting transition. As a young child it was rough man. It was rough when I was ten. I moved to a neighborhood where we're very aggressive tat. Same same sort of situation. Yeah we lived. We lived in a real white trash neighborhood but my dad sheltered me a little bit and then moved in with like and there was all boys like. They're all like a little older than me. And I remember I learned the word Faggot real quick so the first thing I learned that and how to hold a really important things to have in remember coming home and being like my sister and Faggot go get Dolly Walk. Yeah you can you can certainly get ruined by bad kids and no one knows that more than Dad's dad's see you hanging around with sketchy. Kids are GONNA. Hey I don't hang around with that fucking guy. Dad's see where that stuff goes. 'cause sketchy boys commit murder. You know what? I'm saying like sketchy boys joined. Gangs Sketchy Boys Rob cars and kill people drunk driving in set fires to warehouses. That's sketchy boys. Do Sketchy boys can get. You locked up like we did a lot of sketchy shit when I was thirteen years old and I remember thinking like wow. These guys have been doing this their whole life and there are thirteen. I mean I just sort of stumbled it. I just wanted to be someone's friend. You know my fuck. That's what I took fishing a really got into the fuck away from these kids. Hands Your brain. I kinda just picked up with them every time man. I did not feel protected when I was young. And it's one of the reasons why value community today. When I was young I felt like really disconnected. My parents split up and then my mom moved him my Stepdad. And he's a great guy and everything that and but we moved around a lot so I was never around kids that I knew for any long period of time and it never felt like I was safe because I remember 'cause I always start fights boys if you moved into a new neighborhood boys always want to start fights especially girls. Think you're cute girls think you're cute boys? WanNa fuck you up. I mean and then when I was thirteen I was like I. Just gotTa get the fuck away from these kids and I found this lake. That was Near me I really got into fishing. It was called the Jamaica Pond in Jamaica Plain and they would stock it with Trout Bass in. There are all kinds of fish fish. They're all and I met this whole community of people fish. They're mostly older. Folks would fish there and But you learn about fishing aside fished like all the time all time you know speaks a lot to who you are because it's not who. I am like was dove in when I remember. I remember being totally Anti Pot. And then my buddy came like you. WanNa get high and I was like okay. I'm in and we got high on a on a dock lad friends like that too. There was a friend named victim brow. Ski Never Forget he was the most criminal out of all of our friends and he was selling weed when we're thirteen to deal with salad we'd at thirteen. You just call in. He had the wheat and he just like do that. Like it seems shit like even thirteen wasn't mean or anything like that was a nice guy but he just come over like what's up man. Everything cool you guys cool? Yeah wish I had that. Fucking convents guy. It's been cool at a party like you're better off. You'd better off. That guy just said it doesn't. He's not as aware does. No one should be confident. You're a jelly bag. Made out of fucking human skin covering these brittle bones and there's no roof over your head. You're you're in on a planet and there's no there's no roof to the planet so it's exposed to the universe has a shooting gallery of asteroids out there and the only thing that protects us is the thin layer of gas above our heads. You shouldn't be confident. Exactly how you are exactly how you are. You just need better methods of coping than alcohol but the way you are is a good way to be. It's not that confident thing is not good. It's good if you have specific goals like if you want to be a fighter kind of have to be confident but then like do you know Rashaad Evans's of course you former light heavyweight champion awesome guy. He's totally different. Human knows crazy. I had him on my podcast and now that he's retired like one when he was a fighter. Like you have to kind of be mean you have to kind of be specific your dog. He was a beat suit without. I think he's thinking of rampage racist. I Know Shot Evans. I know rampage. You're right you're right. Stop Sorry this. I'm racist. I'm so they just had a great fight. That's why the those two are connected. Because they were both coaches of the ultimate fighter in the peak of its popularity and there was one of the most heated exchanges ever is them standing like an inch away from each other saint. Call me a bitch and shows like you a bitch I remember going back and forth to each other like Oh my God. He's GonNa throw down on TV. It was very very tense and Reshad won that fight. But I'm like he you kind of have to be confident to be that guy back then to be a light heavyweight champion be go knocks out chocolate dealt with one punch. You have to be that but once. You're not doing that anymore. Shot down shots like this. Real spiritual guy. He's a Vegan he he does psychedelics. And he's really intelligent real. It was a pleasure to sit down and talk to him. Because you realize you see the metamorphosis the evolution and maturity as a man. He's a different person now. He's abandoned his old his own skin his old skin. I should say and become a new person. A very different new person like a really peaceful really friendly really Nice Guy. He was always a great guy. But he's like more at ease now. I think that's why when you said when you were talking about me back into a persona of booze and whatnot. I don't know if is that as much but like I had a conversation with Ali Wong she said You tore a lot. I said Yeah I was in my head. I it's this weird thing about like I gotta gotTa work like when the special came out. That was so unearthing to not do any press to do not. I woke up Saint Patrick's Day. Do you know I had that huge Patty's Day thing planned store call us it to work show. I had all this press like all these marketing ideas and then it just like hey the world stopping and it took a couple of days of like depression of just like going like man. What am I gonNa do about the special? You got to promote it. I gotta get out there and then I think it was perspective where I was walking into garage one night and I was just you know angst I go. I should make a video to let everyone know my specials on Netflix. I you know my head and then it went hold on man. There's a lot going on in this world and my special being washed is not the most important thing also. I don't think you have to do much. I mean I think having a few conversations like this the looking for shit to do right yeah. They're throttling down the Internet. That's what they're really worried about. They're worried about the infrastructure. They're they're really worried about the power grid. They're really worried about Internet like thirty starting to throttle Internet because so many people are simultaneously streaming. You got to think of how many people are home right now and how many people when you leave him home just watch that flips me stagnating. We watched especially with my girl. My daughter's last night. Just imagine. Oh no they saw your bigs days all I know the bits before they didn't know oh I don't want to say anything but one about her having their period. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. Rough was out. She was a poor girl. Blew out our pussies a dad. The one they reacted do they had me put my Dick on the shoulder. There was a lot of them that they there were touching go but we watched like quickly flip through it and then And then watch big cats big cat or a cat king. What does that all he fought? Joe With is this is talk about Fo- confidence? It's it's on Netflix. And it might be the most amazing I've ever seen. It's about people who own big cats like tigers but the whole thing is about about petting cubs cubs heading got pat him when they're real young and then they stay cool with you. Well no no no no so these guys make a living off cub petting so they bring the cubs around every once. And then what happens? Is the cubs grow up and then they end up with big fucking cats right and it is. I won't talk to you about it. I'll let you watch it and enjoy it with someone who's like once you've seen it. There's no reason for me to tell you about it. Here's a man. Even if you treat your cat really really well you got him in a cage. The cat does not want to be in a fucking cage. No Shit they don't want to be in a code red. Someone ripped off Brenda's his arm. It is someone ripped off. Someone's arm Joe. You GotTa Watch it. It is a hundred and eighty seven cats on his Oklahoma Property Oh my God hundred acres or something like it is my God i. I'm I'M GONNA save it for when you watch it and then someone's arm off a went back to work seven days. Oh my God L. Arm in arm. So she she has a stump little stop. Oh my God still working with big. That is so crazy Q. Madge if they just started eating part of you and you like still got an alleged. Get this part of my foot. The one guy found the job off craigslist. Who's that guy? I'd never seen anything like this bucket. If you had a job like that people going to sign up like no matter what it is. You got a job to go out and castrate. Wolves is going to be guys that are like I think I can do it. Oh by the way we haven't even gotten to the fucking this isn't that doesn't even the crazy part when you get into these guys lifestyles. This guy married the first gate. Gay MARRIED ONE DUDE. And then they brought in another dude they have a throttle. That's not the crazy one. The crazy ones that guy that lives in South Carolina. This guy fucking nine wives who he grooms Joe. This is really look. Everyone might special. Hey big on Netflix and watch this show. I watch how that strong praise it is. Tiger king down. Put It on my phone. Me and the girls migos watched. Hey big boy and we fuck in. It was funny we giggled. We've talked through whatever that the at the end credits. I put like all the stuff this from the pilots period party cake. I put the I put in the credits. I put like her task. My Dad howling like an owl and And then big cats comes on big king. What's it called? Tiger King Tiger King that it and with in fifteen seconds Jordan like all right. Everyone's up where we found. Our show is fucking good. That's good there's something about people in giant crazy animals people that WANNA keep those animals as pets like. There's this is Russian dude. I think who has a polar bear swims at the polar bear. Have you seen it known on swimming? Pool with a polar bear. He's like hanging out within Katelyn with it. I was like what in the fuck do you don't identify with that a little bit because I do. I definitely do as a do a big dogs but I think it's cool. You know to watch because it's not killing him you know it's like look at. Its hugging him. Kissing him until life is not well. I think if you see bears I think are a different animal because if you keep bears really well fed. They don't there to not just predators. There omnivores right so if you keep bears really well fed. They're probably pretty chill and I wonder if bears are like people like I think if you feed people vegetables. I really believe that they probably get less aggressive. Because I think your body probably doesn't think you need to be chasing things and killing things because you're not eating animal protein so bodies like Oh we can just relax and stroll just pick berries and eat grasses and stuff you know what I think if you did the same thing to a bear. Maybe he just gave the bail apple pies and oh period. Yeah Bro. He's so big I would love. I mean like here's the problem is I would love one yeah. I don't think you're allowed to have one for real good reason because there's a lot of people that shouldn't have fucking dogs man you've seen bad dogs and people have bad dogs There's a lot of people shouldn't have dogs fan. La Yeah well. There's a lot of people that don't they don't train dogs. Well and their dogs are like really aggressive. The jumped up on people. You know imaginative as a bear. That did that just the responsibility. Little length of its neck so crazy. There's such long necks but the just what it is. It's it's you know the animal that it is. It seems ridiculous. You should be able to have that in your backyard. That's Apia polar bear that live. Where's that say? Oh it's going to be Ohio Oklahoma those cities obliging guy who shot himself and let all the animals out. Yeah they talk about that on the thing. That's part of the reason that it's illegal to have a fucking big capital because of that guy even Ohio and raise i. Would I like those savannah? Cats kind Anthony Cumia has angles. Yes Sir Vol's yeah. Isn't that what they're called? Serve all cats. Yeah those are apparently never really tame the never really tame our dogs though. Well there's I think maybe it was John Jones. John Jones has a couple of them but he was feeding them like The John Jones or someone else who had them. I know John has some big cats. He does he's he's that guy he do party. You don't want a piece of John. Jones goes to the dark lands. Can You party me? I'd just go party with John. Jones John Daly You'd have one episode. You call me up. I quit equipment. Show called anymore But yeah so he was feeding it. Chicken bones I'm not sure if it was John or someone else but it's crazy 'cause the cats are making these crazy noise while he's like giving it. Whoever the guy was it was given a chicken bones while he's given this cat these bones. The cat is getting really angry. Like really like scary. Like you might just J- jump on you and bite you like primal shit. They're not a regular cat food. I'll give regular cat chicken bone w pumped but they're not gonNA going crazy cat. Noises thing was making what seemed fine. Serval cat growling while eating one viral and tick Tock Hustle the time feed it everyday and I've seen our cat catch rats. Oh Wow that's you usually put it on a bunch but it'll catch rats. Bring him into the House and then let the. Ratko just exactly what I want this cat for and you to watch it. Hunt Iraq is fucking fascinating. It is built in Br- it's like you can't get out of that cat brain ever no built in spilt in the system. Yeah that's that comes. No matter what the cat's life is like. If you can have a little bit I had a rag doll cat and she was fluffy little ball of for just just flopped her back and get pet all the time and she was. That's all she was interested in until she saw bird and then it was locked in. Oh locked in. And she'd make these noises. Yeah I have a bit about it in my act a wait. I think I saw special. I had the whole bid about Vegan. Cats is some lady was mean to me and I went to a page and I looked up. Hashtag Vegan cat was holy. Fuck this thing. And then I started going down the rabbit hole of people with animals and cats and particularly how cats are there. The strangest animal that we keep as pets. I have two of them a love. Cats they're sweet. My my oldest daughter has now is my middle. Daughter is allergic. But when I'm around them I love Them. I Love Them. But you gotta do Weird Shit with them first of all you had a castrate the males. He go to fix them all like my dog. Marshall. He's not fixed. He's fine. There's another row them he's not GonNa get laid. He's around me all the time. It does fuck with their energy. And it's irresponsible to have dogs testicles. And just have them have a bunch of babies unwanted babies? You're right absolutely but the idea that that's the only way it has to be said. The dog has to either be fixed or you are. You're irresponsible in the dog's GonNa fuck a lot and make babies. No you can be responsible dog owner and the dog is not fixed and dog is more energy. Police dogs fixed. It's for reasons because fixed. They stopped producing testosterone. There's a lot problems with we. We got our dog. Priscilla fixed at a young age bull mastiff and we found out later. That when you get a dog fixed bull mastiff fix two young heads up to anybody. Massive owners it can fuck with their joints. Yeah they've got their bodies maturity yet to reach physical maturity. Your body needs the hormones that it was born with. I mean this is the whole idea behind You know like being a young healthy dog and then if you trim the dog's balls you're changing with the dog is and you can do that. My point was you can do that with dogs or you cannot do that. With dogs like you can have dogs. That have their testicles but with cats you have to do it if you have a male cat. They're all fixed or they will piss all your fucking house dude. It's nasty. I had a male cat. That was a feral cat. I raised and had to corral him in the bathroom in order to trap him and bring him to the veterinarian and fix them whilst corral and him he pissed on the wall. He lifted up his talent pissed. All over the walls dude. What the fuck and I threw a towel or a bathrobe or something over and scooped him up and I fought with. This cat fought with them and stuff them into a laundry basket and took him to get fixed. They have to get them fixed. Man Fighting a cat is fucking Shows you just how weak you are? He's so little too. He wasn't a big cat and at the time he wasn't even a year old. You know because I was getting a fix so I think you get them fixed like seven eight nine months something like that. She was ready to fuck me up. Man It was hard to corral him. Get him into this fucking launched basket. Bring him to Dr Craig. Who is my veterinarian in Encino? Before he passed recipes he was great guy and then When I was a bringing them to them I'm like he's in there. Are you guys gonNA be able to get them out? You want me to stay. And they're like no. I think we're going to be able to handle it. And then afterwards I came to pick up what the FERAL cat. You'll only say yes to get some kid. One time I was like. Hey can you help me get a cat my cat out of the tree and I was like yeah sure one time and then you find a cat and Trina. Vin Can't do that cats and a tree man first of all without a ladder. You might fall even with a lot of you my fault. They might jump on you. Bite you and you might freak out spasm like a cat is freaked out for its life up in a tree and it does not get down. You know they might. They might fucking they might cut you in. Let's say hook onto you the hook onto you and they start fucking trying to gut you. Yeah my cat. That was feral he was he was a trip. I would never have a fro- cat again. But had a lego crazy connection with him because he was legit wildcat like when I first got him I had locked myself in a bedroom and hang out with them for a few days. Just just read books and had a litter box and brought food in there so just me and him hanging out together because he was really little but when I pet him he'd be fine he would per really loud. It'd be fine but as soon as I put him down on me and run away and trying to climb up the the curtains. He went crazy so I had a spare bedroom house that was living in. Sinoe and just set the bedroom up a set it up for me and the cat my dude. We're going to get to know each these. Are the kind of things you do when you're twenty seven. You don't have a girlfriend you like. I'm just GonNa live with this cat for a while. Isn't me in this category? Hang out so just read books. Two days locked in this Bedroom with fucking wildcat and he would calm down for a little bit. Let me per. Let me PAT HIM PER. Let them go and he'd hit and run away. This went on for two fucking days and then finally by the end of two days. He was pretty chill. But then today's like this guy just seems to me and give me food you know so. I could always come up to him and pet him. I can always but no one else could no one none of my friends. No one could come over and pet that cat just me. I was the only one he had an agreement with. It was super cool with other cats. Like when I brought her the cats and I kept stay with him for two days then I introduced him to my other cats spasms the fluff dog cat and then they got along instantly. He was like cats. I can trust cats and she's like I don't know any other cats and the cat was fucking great transplants. Automobiles want candy this other cat that I had from the time when I was like twenty five and that cat was account and see. She didn't like anybody but me she just was a county. Cat always was a county cat. She she was weird cat. Some cats are just weird man you know and then my other cat. The football catch funding. Love everybody everybody that came up with should rub on your leg and you patterns. She'd per everybody loved her. You get scooped her up and just start rubbing her belly inch per anybody. Pick her up but cats. There're their own little thing every one of them's got their own little personality. Joey Diaz you talk to him about his cats at one point time. I know how many as now but he had eleven cats two bedroom apartment and I was like that is so insane and they all had personalities man. They all some of them like He. He was the only one that could touch. And other ones you know real friendly with everybody. Cats are their trip. You have to fix them. That was my point is dogs. You can have a dog that has balls and they're great like mytalk Marshall. He's great aggressive at all. And he's three. He's he seems like a fucking cooled off is the sweetest. But you can't do that with cats. You have to fix all of them. They'll piss all over your house if you like. Have you ever seen a a male cat? That hasn't been fixed. It lives on a farm grow. They don't even look the same. They're these big heads. They've big pit bull heads really. Yes yes alley. Cats that are that are not fixed or Barnyard cats. They're famous for being like vicious vicious animals. They're different they look different. They have their balls thick the muscles. Yeah they have thick heads. I guess I've only seen female cats and kittens about it. My Wife. My wife lived on a her grandmother. Has Bar like a big farm? And there's always cats here but I I think I'm only seeing the females and the kittens. Yeah you you've probably seen females kittens fixed males see castrated males they. They they're different. They don't everywhere and they're more chill dude. If you see a fucking barnyard cat with with his balls like those are sketchy animals died. I remember the day when you'd be like all cats prayed. My car like that was the doesn't happen anymore but back in Florida. You just leave your windows down. Cat sprayed my car one time and I was like Faulk to smells like Shit spray everywhere. This spring your house. I would like to open up my gym bag. My Cat pissed in my gym bag. Oh we had dogs all over. I remember one time I was in the car with my girlfriend. In College and We had a dog thelma. That pissed Oliver Everything. I was in my little sister's in the back. This girl leans four and there's like a brown stain on her back ago. Hey what's on the back of your shirt goes. I must've spill soda on my shirt and my little sister is ten at the time she goes you drink soda over your shoulder. She was like I think our dog pissed on your shirt. I'm pretty sure smelled it. You're like yeah. She pissed fucking shirt. Wild dogs pissing your bed there. Matt Katz Will Piss on your bed if they're mad at you don't Piss on Like the Piss on your pillow. Oh fuck that I'm never been. I was never a cat person. I was always a dog person dog and reptiles I was into reptiles for a long time. Yeah I I. I've fascinated by animals. I love animals but for companions. It's it's hard to beat the dog so if you could go through with all the dogs you ever owned right. Yeah reboot one genetically and get that exact same dog back today can't do martial 'cause marshalls already here. I had a mastiff named Johnny cash. Johnny cash he's a sweetest dog time I met you. His sweetest dog ever loved him. He is a sweetheart he just. It was real sad watching him. Age because at the end He couldn't walk an ice daft. Pick him up and bring him in the house to eat and then I would carry them outside again so if you had to go to the bathroom. But he was at a certain point in his life he he really could only lie down older. You get thirteen. Which is very very very for a massive is very old for a massive but it was really sad. Seeing him seen him Slip away rough you know. Yeah it's It's it's such a short amount of time it's really is teenager. Sylla's nine right now and I mean it feels like yesterday that we got her. We got a new puppy to kind of keep her young. Yeah his own really so much energy. I was going down the end the other day in the puppy just jumps on the bed or we find this bench just starts licking her face. Rude dog doesn't understand place. You can't work out in front of this dogs like do jumping. Jacks are really. Yeah baby at a joke that when the old set that will probably be retired. Now that we're GONNA do instead of freight weeks at least a week's man when I mean these and it's probably going to be several months before easily could be longer. It could be you know. Maybe they find medication that even though there's not a vaccine there's some hope for a few different kinds of medication. One of them is a malaria. Drug I don't I I can't pronounce name off the top of my head and there's another one that shows promises well and they think that it might be possible. That people could catch this. Then you'd give them the medication it would wipe it out There's also there was some speculation about Tamiflu but I don't think there's any conclusive evidence that shows at Tamiflu helps but there is some these anti malarial medications. I think that they think has promised but what concerns me is that it seems to be so different with different people. That's what's weird about. This makes it like what's scary right now for everybody is the unknown. Like we're in the unknown like now. We've never been the situation before as a culture where we're on lockdown and the whole world scared of a disease not not in our lifetimes. I mean not since like the Spanish flu back. Then there wasn't as much transportation wasn't as much Distribution of information so people probably weren't as aware as we are now you know of all the various cases all around them all the time because we're hearing about cases in Italy and Fucking Australia everywhere. We're hearing about cases all over the planet. I don't think that was the case back. During the Spanish flu days I think it was probably hearted understand what was happening right because you probably only got the newspaper and the radio back that and everybody had huddle around a certain time and those are the masters of information whatever they said that was it but now you get all sorts of conflicting information from doctors man of doctors think it's nothing and then I've read doctors. That were terrified. It's like Whoa. This is nuts and then you know you look at A. I don't know if you've been paying attention to these senators did. There's some senators. They had a behind closed. Doors meeting about the corona virus in China and what could meet the United States and you know the various impacts and they went out and sold their stock immediately do and then the but the same time they were talking about how under control the government had it. And how we're prepared and how it's going to be fine. And meanwhile they knew they knew so they had to faces. They had public face. They're given to us to try to keep us calm. And then they had a private face which realized that the stock market was going to take a huge loss and so they sold. Everything made immense profits based on the information that they found out from these closed door meetings about the corona virus. How are they supposed to legal? How are they supposed to handle the out of like legally what are they supposed to do with fusing I don't know what constitutes insider trading? How does that work? Do you understand how that works if you have that can allow you to make money. Well isn't that like what everyone's trying to do like if you like. What is the point stock market? If you don't know things and if you do nothing no more because you know the guy was the president and he tells you something about something they're gonNa do and you're not supposed to trade then because of that information like all right okay. I mean I'm sure there's a logic to it. I'm Warren. Don't run it by me. But if that's insider trading what is it what the senators do if they knew that the corona virus is gonNA wreck our economy. They knew that it was coming down. Like fucking storm of Hail that no one could stop if they knew and then they bailed out and made immense profits that seems so shady seem so shady that they didn't advise like you're supposed to be a leader right if you're in a position an elected representative you're supposed to be acting in the position of leader and if your way to lead is tell people one thing but act in a completely different direction. Tell people everything's GonNa be fine but then start selling your stock at a profit and you don't tell other people to do it because you're worried that maybe that information's going to cause some ripple effect is GonNa destroy the economy even before the Krahn virus hits just had a panic and fear and people are gonNA wrong but you acted in a different way than the way you were talking. You acted like this shit was gonna be real. You Act like there's going to be a real problem and then the question is like how much of a problem did they think it was going to be. Maybe they dumped their stock. They thought it was going to be a little problem. Would that be okay? But if they found out I was going to be a huge problem. Then it's not well. That seems weird to me to like. I don't know what should the rules be with information in the stock market the stock market is gross. Like it's the whole thing's gross. Like what are we based on our economy on this fucking madness? It's not. It's not the way that the two thousand two thousand nine breakdown was two thousand eight. When the stock market crash it was based on literal numbers and an investments this based no no I would actually say that one was more real than this one. This is a the stock market crashed in a way that you're going like it's based on. I mean I know that it's it's for commercial businesses. Their loans GONNA come up and it's going to be tough for them but at some point you're like I wish you could just put it on freeze and go. Hey let's come back in like two months. Let's start where we were. Let's make sure everyone was fad. Like that's but birth is the the ultimate real because if if it's supposed to be about confidence and things rising and falling this is like the ultimate expression of that. There's no confidence you can't work. Of course crash yeah. You're right if it doesn't crash here that it's nonsense there was the point because there's times where everything's groovy people are buying like. Crazy manufacturing is up. Everything's up everybody's happy. Komo consumer satisfactions up and people are buying like crazy and there's so many industries that are happening and so many jobs and unemployment the lowest rate it's ever been ever in the history of people and then all of a sudden it's not anymore of course it's got a crash so it's gonNA crash. This is the crash. This is the big one. This is the big one of our lifetime. Maybe the biggest one ever because if she could go on for a long time this is scary to think of all. Those people just like who are paycheck to paycheck. You know with waiting tables or teaching a spin class or whatever it is. That's where my brain goes is like how come there's GonNa be way too fucking help people. Yeah the does I mean that's all I do. All Day is spend like the other day hit at McDonald's. Say there's a way to buy a bunch. Abby meals send to a neighborhood. You could do that with certain restaurants. He could support restaurants one of my favorite restaurants in Vegas Guy. Tunnels is In Henderson and they used to be in calabasas. We used to go them. Way Back in the day But they're they're doing a lot of takeout and then they're also raising money for their employers which is very nice you know and I think stores doing something like that. We're all going to donate for the wait staff because the wait staff is completely shit. Outta luck and they were doing you know good business down there and so those folks. I'm sure they have bills like serious fucking bills and it's just piling up and there's no business you know. I mean they went from having this great place we can go and you can count on x amount of money per week to all of a sudden gone. No-one taught common. That's never happened ever. You can't blame them for not being prepared. But you know they're part of our comedy family man we gotta we gotta take care of them particularly at the store. We should set up something for the impromptu and we should also you know just figure out a way to like find out who's hurting like who's in trouble especially in our community iconic so that we know people browde well this. I know we're not find them. Because there's a lot of comics in our community that like they're going to check to check to you. Know MIDDLE MIDDLE. Acts that headliners. Yeah there's a lot of headlines right particularly first few year headliners with only making you know X. amount per week and you got to pay your own flight and all that jazz you getting by. But you're not killing it and then you probably have fucking apartment. That costs to grandma more. You know I mean New York City those guys the fucking apartment. New York City or ridiculous. They're so expensive so think of all those comics New York City that relied on that system of going club. The club and picking up a little bit for people know a lot of Comedians in New York. There's like New York's probably the most condensed comedy club community in the country when you agree by far. Yeah how many clubs do you think are in the city I say twelve? Yeah totally Dangerfield's I'd never performed there are there. It's not Joey Joey was in. Chile was my spot. When I lived in New York phasing out like a comet can think in another comics level because as soon as you said that my two clubs I thought stand up New York and Dangerfield. Counting THOSE COOKING ACCOUNT. Those but dangerfield's is the the weirdest one because That was the one where they filmed those. Hbo Specials With Rodney Dangerfield. Yeah and it was always empty. It was always empty. It was never anybody there. Man Except Prom season prompts. He's and you'd be doing stand up to like seventeen year old kid and it was madness. It was madness. Do you ever hear story bill? Burr story about getting heckled dangerous field. Now my favorite. I may built all this a number of times and I made him. Tell it on our podcast. My favorite pop beumer billions younger. Right there's a little more cleaner little chip beer. Is Those Pan so bills doing his his high energy. Happy Act and it's too prom crowd and punch a fucking bridge tunnel posse and it's not getting anything and the guy in this guy in the back goes anything rat on stage FAGGOT. Bill goes. I didn't have one pull out. I just went fuck Godman. Yeah that when you've got to be prepared for the yeah the I think about I think about I. The number one thing this whole thing has done is made me think how much our waste shit our waste so much. Shit Dude Fruit Fruit Bananas going bad. Just all mountain no no. I've been eating them. Yeah like it's it's waste and health man when I heard you told up podcast and the so glad to know that you were talking to me because I heard it is. If you're talking to me. I told Brian Cowen I go. You ever do a podcast. You just talking to you. And he goes all the fucking time never talking to you Bryan callen never talking about. He said No. He said he goes one time. Jovan said my name. The one thing audible was Was Nuba saying this and I've always like kind of written you off about going like well. You know whatever you got to get off that blood pressure medicine. The second I heard China's got all medication. I got one I literally thought. Now what am I doing? What am I doing on blood pressure medicine? Why don't they just get in shape and get healthy and getting control my weight? So I'm not dependent on a pill to come in and then if I don't have a stroke you can do to Bert. It's not outside the realm possibility when you consider how well you're doing while you're booze in his heart is you are. You're probably and you always like fire up for sober October. The first year I was worried I was like man. I don't know how he's GonNa do. Some people were actually telling me. They came in and he could die. They'll like When guys drink a lot and then they stopped drinking. It's really bad. And apparently. That's what killed amy. Why now stay up? Everyone kept telling me that has killed him. Wine House you know. Did you know that Bro us? One thing when you host a podcast and you you have fucking thousand of them. People wouldn't tell you shit that you haven't heard before so one of the things that people love to tell you about. You could die if you stop drinking you can die. You told me that you said to me when we were leaving you were like you gave me a hug. And you don't have to do this. Man I was like I was flipped out. I was worried because I like damn it? Magic does how we kill Burt. Imagine trying to get Bert healthy like it. Turns out to kill him aiming wine house style. Dude I love Amy Wine House. Oh she was this base. I will throw on an album and listen like rehab or some of our great song. Shutt- authenticity authenticity to her voice. This unmistakable like looseness to her voice she was wild per bjork. I used to love Bjork. Yeah Bjork is great to man to shield totally different way like I had to like pause. I totally different kind of sound but yeah but authentic. Yeah yeah and so sexy men like Bjork was so hot and just doing her own thing like electronic music in this time when it wasn't selling here but it was like you ever hear you ever heard that song It's Oh so quiet by bjork. Oh so quiet. It's amazing. Did you ever see Bjork? Fuck up that respect. Yeah this person thought. They could get right in her face with a camera just because she's famous like when no permits. This is not agreed upon you. Just show up where persons just at the airport with kid kid. Yeah you deal with that. I just I most of the time like if someone wants to be interviewing me when At the airport or somewhere where? I'm not you know I'm not expecting it. It's just not smart. That's not I do this all right. The we have conversations should be your your thoughts that are going to get. Viewed by. Millions of people shouldn't be something that you say when you have your First Cup of coffee and maybe you're half on an edible coming off the flight and you picking up your luggage and you didn't expect to run a TMZ and they'll like what do you think about the corona virus and like stop eating bats. You fucks mean that you don't but you were you know. You're there at fucking. Lax At seven thirty in the morning. Getting your bags. If that's that's the problem it's just not smart and then there was a weird thing that happened during the Roseanne. Roseanne was going to do the podcast for the first time for the second time. Rather and She had that that crazy controversy then. They removed her from a show. And the whole deal. Do they were showing up at places where we weren't with with cameras? They were showing up at the comedy store with Cameras. Trying to capture. 'cause IF LIKE. Oh you got me on camera I gotTa Talk to you. I guess what the news is if you watch like local news. It's a bunch of people pointing cameras at stuff and then loosely applying journalistic ethics to see like what they talk about what they don't and what they feed you over the next half hour and they want to be number one in the ratings because you know like channel seven's right now is kicking our ass and I just really feel like we've got to get on the scene quicker and it becomes the sport your vote. This is not necessarily the information there's personalities in jobs irt risk into there's so many factors that are contributing and like in moving what you listen to NC in a certain direction. It's not the news. It's a news program. It's their interpretation of what they think is the most important stuff to focus on over the next x amount of minutes because life is too fucking nuts. We have access to the whole world. You GonNa break the whole world down sixty minutes. It's an editing show right because you can't show everything there's millions of things that are fascinating that are going on right now positive and negative so they balance it out you know. What are they GONNA do? A calabasas woman out the hard way you can't who show a puppy P. and honor. Oh was that was great. Now let's get back to murder and death and fucking thievery. I said that someone I said. Do you think that this buyers coverage is based on the news like saying we're taking back the news and someone was like they'd be getting their asses handed them handed to them for so long by trump? This is where they're making the money back and then you wonder like I like I like Chris Cuomo I like him. I actually like him. I like our watch him unless you get upset when he got mad. That guy about the first thing. I got upset forum. I wish I was there. I'll go onto. Don't say that don't see that. It's not like the N. Word don't you that I understand this guys a Dick and you're letting no can't be addict to you but let's relax was relaxed. It was such. It's provoked though. And he was trying to get out of it like you got you know it's like it's like doing Jujitsu and you make a terrible mistake and all of a sudden you trapped in someone's Triangle. You just gotTa tap out out and you've got to live to fight another day you got caught. Don't get your neck fucked up. You know when he was trying to like save ego when the guy called them frago that first of all the guy that called him. Because there's such a ship to do like just just as a passer by they did it. Turn back in the George Lopez hooters one time like they some guys Lopez. Who did it to George Did George? I think he's George. Lopez said something like build a wall or something. George and they videotape it. They want they want to go viral. That's what they want. So they call around Frago. They're videotaping it and they're looking for reaction so they can use that to move. Yeah Afraid Radio made me giggle. It's such a fun song but to say that. That's like the N Word African Americans do. Nobody own freight Oh stop. It was. He almost made it more enjoyable. I was watching more enjoyable so ridiculous. If you watch godfather to you wouldn't be able to think of anything but quick. Promo when you're watching that scene. I think I call him when he comes on the TV. I Love I love him. No Bhai love him like I say with with a free with a Freida and his brother is the governor of New York. They look strikingly like brothers. They are very impressed. With how his brothers responding to this though with the You know I understand that. There was a certain point in time where he wasn't sure whether or not they shut down New York. But you know now the way. He's responded to it. This way carries himself. He's very he's very lucky. Said no nonsense person like the way carries himself. Yeah you know I like and I don't know F- I don't know anything about his politics or anything about what he does but you can sort of it least gather from the way someone handles a crisis like how they how they carry themselves. You gather whether or not you can trust them if she gets crazy and he seems to carry himself very well. It's like that's very important for just the morale of the nation in a weird way. That's why a leader is very important. Because when someone's a real leader and even though there's going to be people that hate them people that are pissed everything they do and that's always going to be the case if you're the leader of the free world right but if they can somehow or another shift the way we feel about ourselves shift the way we feel about our like give you A. There's like pep speeches and a really good presidential address. A really good one just gets into the feel good spot and brings everybody really has a tangible effect on reality. It can really affect reality. And that's that's what people don't understand about why people get upset about people not being able to talk. Well it's a big fucking deal now. People like why are you joking on Joe Biden? 'cause it's a big deal. He's in the biggest fucking sweepstakes on earth who gets to control all the thermonuclear weapons and the entire Connie and everything that gets done inside the United States America one guy ready go like what you gotta be able to talk really well if you want that job. These part of the job is inspiring people. It's one of the things. Obama did better than any of them. You know like you could say what you want about. Clinton he had some good speeches to fill. Bomb was even better because he was just measured and intelligent and articulate and strong. There was something about the way was talking. That was confidence-inspiring whether or not he was right or not whether or not. He made bad decisions. I don't think anybody can do that. Fucking job. I don't think it's a death sentence. I think it is for all of them. I think I think they get in there. And the Tornado of things that they have to control things you have to pay attention to the responsible for hundreds of difference of fucking pieces emotion all over the world all these pieces in motion all these pieces and you're supposed to be the one guy that makes the right decisions on all of those and chooses the right people for both pandemics and the economy. How about just one. Do you even understand one in international relations on top of that? Holy Fuck and then you gotta go to North Korea. Now we're in China too. Many things Juggle Borowitz madness. That's why Reagan. I wonder I wonder if it's where we're going back is to a Reagan like a did you see Matthew mcconaughey speech not not is it good. Yeah well it's Matthew mcconaughey right like we all. We all bought into him in the mid nineties. This IS OUR OUR OUR DREAM MONK. He's he's one of our. Jim honks for man. He just sit there and he's just for that. Texas drawl about Red Lights and green lights is a yellow right now. We're going and it. Just I get on I got I get like I got sat up in bed. It was like I'm GonNa fucking workout man like that's this isn't we can do this. Well I think for the people like you and I who you're gonNA be okay financially. It's not as scary as a different thing for the people were financially. It's going to affect them greatly. There has to be a real big decisions made to help those people because this is not is not a situation of people not wanting to work. It's a situation of people not being able to work because of an invisible enemy that kills your loved ones like if there's ever a time where the United States has to come together. This is the time and I think I think were capable of doing that and I think if we do the right thing and we come out on the other side. I think we're GONNA be stronger. I think we're GONNA be stronger in not in the not dismissing the losses and the the people that are gonNA badly miss loved ones. I'm not I'm not even trying to diminish that. I'm just trying to save for the people that that will survive. We're going to understand what it's like to go through a real adversity together for the first time in a long time as planet not just as the United States not as Germany not his Japan nod as Iraq. No the whole thing together because it's everywhere and the whole thing together is a giant problem for everybody that survives and for everybody that survives no matter how bad it gets or how good it gets whether it morphs and changes or whether it doesn't the people that survive we have to learn from this we gotta learn we gotta learn in every way and we gotta learn how and. I'm learning. I'm learning right now. My own personal south like how. I'm shifting however you the world like that. Everything has to go back to me being able to do shows whenever I want to stand up whenever I want and travel wherever I want to go and not worry about killer every everything has to go back to that because that's what I'm used to know like just you know history you know how the world works. There's countless examples of civilization. That no longer exists. They got wiped out by plague or natural disasters. We are well aware of this but yet none of it ever registers and we never thinking applies to us. We never think that this is it. This is the one this is the one we got a really paying attention. No fucking you see them kicking all the people off the beach. The Metal Santa Monica. That like we're close to the beach. You faulk vacation. People are down there just suntanning. Hanging out of my girls wanted to go for a hike yesterday and I think all the morons that are out hiking the thing is that this requires us to act fast and I think the human race is giant. And it's so huge the numbers so spectacular to get all of us to coordinate together. I think it's like an impossibly long battleship think of a battleship. It's a hundred times bigger than regular battleship battleship. Think how fast I think turn. It's going to be so slow. Never thought about that right. It's not like one of them's speedboats. Just Han you're on a battleship. That mother fuckers hard to turn and I think the human race is like. It's an impossible to imagine battleship. It's like a battleship hundred thousand times bigger than any other battleship. It's so big. It takes up like one tenth of the Ocean. That's how big this ballot motherfucker attorney. Brian barely turn burn. That's us and I think this thing required us to turn we ran. It's like an iceberg. There's a giant thing ahead of us. Something hit us this change in in a virus that jumped to human beings and we have no immunity for it. That's what it's like his like like. We are battleship. Does not turn quick enough for this and we didn't have the proper preparation for something like this because we didn't see it even though we knew it was possible. We didn't see it happening us. We made some preparations. But I don't know but did we ever figure out whether or not the government actually did stop this pandemic office and close down this pandemic office. Is that true member? We're trying to look at that the other day digging through that was not fun. Something was changed. I don't know about closing the thing. It's an interpretation sort of discussion that like I don't know how he's trying to dig. Put a fact and all sorts of websites that like we got. It took too long to find a good answer that was worth sharing so like I don't I am going now. Would you think though when you what did you think when you read like what would they specifically say definitely? There's different people in place and what I had one of the things I read along the Path was that there was a meeting about possible pandemics with a with a team of people in an office. Those people are no longer there though there might be people that have replaced them because of how many people have changed over the administration so the people that are in those places now weren't at the meeting so they don't they never got those like notes basically. Yeah Shouf of that. But that's what happened with us the same stuff. That happened nine eleven. They're like these. These were all warned. Like it's it's interesting to see hindsight really inaction where you're like. I have this for this comedian. Very hilarious comedian. Who doesn't do comedy more? A woman named Andy Smith in fucking early February. She sent me a text that I figured she had postpartum depression. I was like. Oh she's lost her mind that's too bad she was really funny. Shut a kid must be going through a divorce and it was. Hey I've been translating these Chinese documents. This flu is going to get a lot worse than anyone thinks. We need to stay home. You need to start spreading the word. You have a podcast like so you thought was long. How many weeks goes pulled up right now She just texted me last night She this was February fifteenth to wrote. Hey home classes. Hey It's me again. I've been googling translating the shit out of this virus situation for weeks and stop traveling. Tell everyone to stop right now. I know I know I come off. I. I can't fucking read on glasses here. Look at these here at boys here Trot Blind. I am from the same. Become the fuck offer. We Really GonNa stay until they wait until they tell us. Tell us to stay off the streets. That's where we are today. That will be too late right honestly. Everyone should just call in sick. Tuesday what are they GONNA do? Suit up fellas come on over and see if I'm lying is genius really is probably the most American. The protests thing ever just lazy paid refusal and probably our last chance to legally chef power back to the people who forcibly dragging us back. Suv's maybe you're already say in a safe hillside bunker. I hope so. Sorry for the Downer rant. I'm sending all the smart people I know for a view because all my dumb hor friends have no grasp on strategy or intuition. Faulk stay home. Learn to knit learn had Annetta facemask. I wish we could all stay home and jump the gun save ourselves and then I wrote on fucking the day my special drop no on fucking March a month later I wrote. Oh Shit you're right. She texted me a bunch of medications to get bottom all dude and by the way not not a discount or she was a fucking tits hilarious comedian. Why did you stop doing stand up? Show baby major beef with like Schumer in Nikki. Glaser like legit. Fuck in this chick was little roughing it but Fight Hardcore last comic standing hundred burned to the ground scholar at America. Because she just to she is she's a fucking man he's a nice guy he's a great guy he's a great guy and him and her got onto it onscreen. Oh No yeah. But she's she's wild. She Still Jim. Jeffrey sunglasses like fucking real fucking wild chick. She sent that to me like damage month ago and I just was like oh postpartum crazy poor girl. They're saying this senators is closed door meeting that they had this closed-door army that was in January. This guy named Respectable lawyer that follow on twitter. Who's the one who Sent it to me. And he had a series of tweets about it documenting it and you read it and go. Oh my God. It's like did they really know or it's again. It goes back to that thing. Like what are you supposed to do like? Are you allowed to just start talking about that? This is coming. Like if your senator and you find out about something like what are. What are your responsibilities? Did they give you a mandate and what you're allowed to talk about or not allowed to talk about like if they sit you down and have some crazy meeting where they tell you the sky's falling. What do you say? Do they tell you when you're allowed to say it like? How does that work black twitter says that? This was a distraction. Because there's a comment hitting us. Jesus our bus drivers black and he was like you just want to make life sock right before the fucking big one hits how county my my you know. Now that I'm thinking about it might not have been Peter Attiyah that said that I don't want attributed to him just in case I'm wrong. That said that people that are around it more often seem to get sicker. It might have been some. I don't WanNa look right now. But let's just take that away from him but if that is the case that's the so it's so different than anything else. It's weird with what's weird to me is how some people apparently nothing happens and other people just get wrecked like we're talking about the same thing like what is this thing I had. H One n one. Did you really yeah? I just figured it out like a couple of days ago it was the sickest I've ever been in my fuck life and I was like and I I mean I'm mark it down is like I thought I was going to do that. Over the December one happened a lot in America or was it mostly overseas. It happened. I was talking to drew. My podcasts. Happened around two thousand nine in December November December. When we had an outbreak in America in America my cousin had it. Dr Drew was telling me about his experience and I was like. That's so fucking crazy and I told him like. Oh the sixth I've ever been and I recount it then. I go through my instagram or my facebook photos and I look. That's December two thousand nine. And I go dude. I got H One n one. It was. I'm telling you when I say I've never felt like that when you don't get knock your br you kind of breathing but you're not getting injured and my wife didn't get my wife didn't get it. My kids didn't get it. My mom didn't get it. I was with all of them and my wife and I got on a plane and I drank and that is what fucked me up drank and I got into Mexico and I was. I mean without a doubt the sixth I've ever been does sickest. I mean gasping for breath could not be comfortable throwing up chills. It was the worst chest infection. I mean I thought it was. I've always written it off to walking pneumonia and then we're talking about it and I was like December two thousand nine. That's exactly what I fucking got it. Wow that one had a a really high fatal ization rate in within forty to fifty year olds? Yeah so what's crazy. No word fatalism made up hours right. Fatality rate is what I should have but I was thinking does that. You can't even say it that way. It's funny it's funny. How saying something wrong the wrong way to some mealy makes you a fucking moron you can say like the most interesting and complicated shit ever but then you said in the fatal ization of it all like what. What the fuck did you say Fatos? Ation fraud is like when you use ever use a saying wrong I went. I've pitched I pissed movie in Hollywood and salt of the Earth as if they were dirty people. These are the real salt of the earth. You know the people you want to stay away from. Oh No that's the it's funny but that's this is how easy it is for us. We can't understand. The wars were fought over salt. They literally fought for for wars. They fought wars killer. Salt for salt. Salt was so important. Salt was everything because saw allowed you to preserve food. You take fish and me and all these different things you can covernment salt and the salt prevents growth bacteria so you can keep things even at room temperature far longer covered in salt than you can. If they're out exposed to the air for real hundred percent yeah so the salt of the earth was like a an incredibly valuable thing. Well we really use that wrong but that we think of that wasn't that long ago man. People were having fucking wars over salt. This this whole situation has forced you to think much more globally and Transall dench Italy. Translate densely did try one out but like down the transit digitally. I don't even know those two words together ever but like you. You look at like the Double Verb. I want my daughters. Were watching some movie about the Great Depression yesterday and I was like. Oh that seems kind of real. Does it seemed like Chit? That'll never happen to us. Because it would never happen to US economically as fucked up as the economy is a dip and it comes back because the same amount of people need the same amount of shit right so you gotta make stuff and just see comes back. Same out of people willing to work. Seamount people healthy same amount of physical resources required to make that shit okay. Let's figure it out. I don't make the shit again. And people make the Shit and they sell a shit and things keep moving. This is different. This is more more disturbing than anything we've ever seen because it's something that nobody suspected all the consequences of a global pandemic. Nobody ever thought. Oh no the whole world would have to stay home and no one would ever work. No one thought never never in a million it. No one thought that no-one wrote a script about that but then some people have to work right like supermarket people in healthcare people and firemen and all these other people that have to work healing. Okay so we're just Kinda let kind of putting a band aid on it but it's all going to keep getting out right. It's GONNA keep getting out if they get it if they get it in there and contact with people all the time. They're going to be the bridge between people and the disease because not everybody can just stay home and it's almost like we'd have to go door to door with people with Fuckin- Has Matt suits on delivering food staying house. Everyone stay in the house for two weeks. Like it's GonNa get to a point. Where if it keeps coming back like the keep instituting. Difference differ measures like. It's just started right already. We're we can't have public gatherings of more than ten. People can't can't go to a restaurant. You can't do a standup show. Can't go to the movies so all those things are done gyms or closed all these clothes. This is never had before and everybody just stays home. Well if what if that doesn't work would they keep ramping up? You know what if like five months later they realize well we've done is instead of like letting this disease blow through everybody's GonNa blow through quickly now. It's like slowly trickled into everybody's GonNa Affect still affects. The same. Amount of people still infects the same amount of people that they don't know whether or not that could possibly happen. They're hoping that it wouldn't but it could flare up again. That was that's another piece of concern. They're worried it could flare up again. That's one of the things that's crazy uncertainty. Yes exactly. That's the number one thing because we all want to pretend that all this shit makes sense. Even though we're temporary life forms can start it. Even though even though the star that powers the solar system itself has a finite lifespan and things have changed so much even though all those things exist. We still want to pretend that the world's going to be the way it is right now forever. I take. This is not good for us in that people are going to die. People are GONNA get sick but it might be the survivors of it might experience a shift in understanding of what it is to be alive. What is to be a person what this life is is life is not? It's not about fame or money or or getting your point to be the one that gets accepted by everybody. Or you know arguing with the left or arguing with the right. It's not that slide is people hanging out with each other and staying alive. That's what it is. Have you interacted with people like we were out putting a fence front yard? Some people walk down the street. It's Kinda cool then waving to each other. Yeah people are saying hi. People are appreciating each other a little bit more bigger guy said to me. The other day goes Heaven how you doing I said good and he goes you guys holding up. John didn't even. I didn't even know the guy said good. How about you guys really cool? Want to I like fucking insane toothache in the middle of the night the other night right I had to go to rite aid and it was open and I was so grateful. You take it for granted I was gonNA write eight and I started driving there and I go. They're probably not open like we're in shutdown. Yeah a pull up their open. Poor young ladies sitting there gloves on and a mask I buy some Amazon. I go. He's like I never said this. Thank you thank you for being awake in the middle of a pandemic and working here so that just a toothache like a fucking toothache people risking their health. That's hope that we still feel this. When when things to clear up an arm and I'm optimistic I really do. Think we're GONNA fuck in flatness curve and things are GonNa go back to normal and everyone's GonNa be safe book. I hope that people are still that way. I hope it weighs with young kids ways with me because I'm a little older and I feel like I'm I'm allowing myself to change in a grateful way of seeing things noticing things that maybe I didn't notice because I lived in Florida. I lived in different places open for kids. I hope kids my kids. Put their phones down want to interact and WANNA die and be like I had a month. Fuck in two months on my phone. I'm out I WANNA I wanNA ride a bike or something you know. Well there's levels that this can drop. This is one level. One level is stay at home You know another level to this could drop as if the grid goes down. You know. There's things things that we rely on that we don't even we don't even think twice about hitting that light switch and knowing that all that juice will be power and all these lights and then my refrigerator's GonNa stay on and that you know I'm GonNa keep being able to charge my tesla every night. You assume all that. But there's no guarantee is no guarantee that this fragile system's GonNa stay in place particularly if something bad happens like a solar flare like one solar flare could wipe out our whole grid. One Big One can wipe out you know. I mean one asteroid impact one. You know one crazy. Super Volcano eruption wipe out everything all of it and then those things are real. They happen all the time there. There are one hundred percent real. They're hundred percent real. And we've documented history of them in the planet Earth Puck and thousands. They're always acid. We don't we just don't live that long man. We don't live that long so we forgot. We forgot that all this shit happened and we thought that because you know from my my life from sixty seven to two thousand and two nothing nothing like this research things like this don't happen it's amazing to me how many people have called me about guns. 'cause. I do a bit of guns in his new special and everyone's came in getting your gun guy visit good place to move time to move to Texas. Get yourself a ranch. Thank God we trained with. What's his name attack? Man I know how to use my gun. I feel very confident with my gun. Yeah it certainly helps you get some training. That's a going to be a big issue with people shooting people accidentally with people that don't have good firearm safety and they haven't been instructed correctly and just go out and shoot guns. I don't know what the rules are today in terms of being able to buy a gun when I first bought a gun there was no rules. He just if you weren't a criminal. You could just get a gotten mrs when it first came here ninety four. Oh really the rules. Now are a twelve day waiting period and take a test tested pretty easy You take a test you buy the gun and then they. They've a definitely a waiting period. Don't get me wrong back. Then but what I'm saying is there was no instruction. That's what I mean like. There was no you didn't have to show your proficiency or you didn't have to definitely show that you know you know where the safety is and remove a magazine. You didn't have to show anything. I didn't even know. He gave me some platelets. It's like they're red. He's like mess around with those. You know get comfortable your gun and I and they didn't work so I never figured out. I just literally had a gun. I didn't even load it. I was like I'd have a gun. I don't know what to do with it. And then Taryn taught me everything And so that's the only reason I knew how to do anything with my gone but I bought two. Guns did not a fucking bullet job special but it's true. I put a bullet in the shotgun and I thought one that goes but I didn't and I didn't know how to get out I was like I called my buddy how I get a bullet out of a gun. Here's like this couch live in Florida. Yeah Yeah Yeah. That's why I called him. Yeah do cowherd stock to the Gills. Anthony Cumia first and foremost having another one. You take one one more one more getting crazy. We're having two drinks gentlemen over a short period of time. What is it an hour thirty six minutes into the PODCAST perfect? We halfway spaced perfect. I feel perfect right now. No worries I don't want to send you off the off the wagon. I like the weird epiphany about like I want to be with my kids right now. You know like hanging what I'm hoping is good. That's GONNA come out of this right for all of us. I hope so. Man Cheers. Joe Thank you for doing this Man Pleasure. I hope you are. I love it. I love you man. That's a good whiskey the buffalo trace. Yeah I just love the fact that this company started out during the pioneer days this a company from the seventeen hundreds. That's ridiculous Jesus for the seventeen. Hundreds is one company. It's got to be one of the oldest companies in the country. What's the oldest? How is I mean? I think that shit was around like like right. When the United States is being formed we got Levi's or no Levi's were the eighteen forties right. I don't know they were canvas. Write these to make them out of canvas made out of old tents. Well I think yeah. I think the canvas that they had back then was probably made out of canvas to it was probably hemp. That's why I was so durable. That's what they used for close forever. Apparently I've had a hemp shirt was kind of whack always felt like a Hippie when I was wearing it but I have a sliding doors sliding doors. I'd like to see that transition. Joe where you smoke weed but don't love Jitsu and you get into like an oxygen bar and I had A. I still have a hemp key from DOTS. Who Sarah it's fucking crate. Yeah hemp is. It's a. It's a weird fabric. It's it's really really durable like it's my hemp keys. Never ripped cotton. Oh man the stitching might go eventually but man cotton geeze. After a few years they give out you know almost dudes trying to kill you yanking on you and shit. They rip rip armpits they get bleached a bunch of times they get a little weaker. They start ripping that helped motherfucker. That thing isn't rip at all. It's an alien planet. He wasn't he plant. What's the name of that Do you had the best fucking nine years ago. You talked about a Guy. Did a kettle bell workout and I had it on my computer and I have an keep Weber is that it was like a fucking twenty minutes of Cardio workout all my God. It's incredible heart attack. Oh Yeah Yeah and you could do with a thirty five pound keto. Bill you hold onto thirty five pound kettle this thing and doing shit dude. Thirty five pounds on. I'll throw that around ten minutes in. I'm ready to die. That's the one I've been looking for that. Sometimes TR- weightlifting's my thing right now. Like I WANNA I wanNA put mass on. Because I don't want my bones to fall apart. All I do is run. All they do is run in spin glass. That's it but I wanna I WANNA do. I WANNA put weight on like on lift weight. That's a good move. I like the way you're saying to you. Don't want your bones to fall apart. There people need to take that. If there was a supplemental you can take that would actually increase your bone density do not popular supplement that something that would be so popular. Everybody would want to take some that actually increases your bone density and makes you less vulnerable to breaking your leg if you fall down. That's when Shit go. Sideways is when you're sixty five and you break a hip you break your femur. That's a game changer. A broken bone. Yeah you want to maintain muscle mass and the best way to do that is by picking up heavy things during this isolation period. Though one of the things you can do especially because We're assuming this is only going to last like a month or two. Were hoping Want things you can do. Is You could do a lot fucking calisthenics. You can do all kinds like you can do significant numbers of push ups and bodyweight squads and if you have a Bar just a channel Bar that you fit inside a doorways perfect. Just get one of those. Get one off a Amazon. Get the kind that screw into the wall. So can't fall off on you you don't WanNa die of has should be get silly and tried to flip back and forth you fall on your face. There's no hospitals okay but if you just get a regular bar just at Chin Bar. Pushups situps doing like Like a bunch of different bodyweight exercises like pistols and you know like one one legged squats in different Yoga routines you could get sure added show. Did you know the Herschel? Walker story that he actually got jacked from doing pushups. Sit ups and stuff in between commercials of shows you would watch. No yes do. That's my brain that's migraine. I Love I love nothing more than a punishment. Challenge like a punitive like. We were doing that one the road. I was like 'cause Marky Mark in Dr Wahlberg Dr. Oz did their push ups. I made a joke video going this bullshit pushups and we're bullshit. Push up to sixty of them. But why did they do that? Marky mark is a stud marks were better than draws is if we call mark and mark definitely get nothing but respect for him. He's a great actor. He's on a campaign right now like he's nothing but in my newsfeed about what about just. I Dunno clear like a PR campaign. I don't know what he's I don't know what he's well. It's probably all about him. You know promoting a movie or something like that Spenser for hire snow very fucking inspirational guy. His boogie nights is one of the best night's fucking ever ever. He's got a lot of great movies. He legally legitimately has a lot of great movies. But like as a human being like when you look at like his dedication to fitness bullshitting really is up at five o'clock in the morning. Workout a beast. He's the real deal he is like. I think if you had pivoted and just on acting I think you have probably similar personalities like very like I don't know I never met him he was at a UFC once but I was doing commentary and sometimes celebrities in there. I'll look over Kashmir I say hi you know. I got a hug from Jeremy Renner. I was very excited. Really never met him. He came over gaming big hug. I was like dude. He seems like a really cool guy. He's really cool. He's really cool. More Mark Wahlberg pitch push ups legit like the legit Stud if you look at his workouts. I mean that guy goes after it. You don't get built like that. I don't care what you're taking. You don't get built like that unless you work hard. Yeah there's no magic pill all hard work geat like whenever someone says all yeah. They're on testosterone replacement. That's wonderful. I'm sure that helps definitely house. But you don't get built like that in unless you're working out hard Dr Oz push ups are bullshit. Now mortis Marxists tricep pushups. It's a little bullshit it's a little bullshit. The right way to do a push up. I'm not being a stickler but legitimately for your own body doctor. Ause is actually doing it better in that. He has his elbows closer to his body. Follow me here like your hand in front of you and this and this is a motion for your shoulders. A lot of people think that this is not a good motion elbow out. It's a different thing and maybe it might be better to do it. The Way Mark. Wahlberg is where you're going up all the way. I'm sorry I got them. Confused Dr Oz is closer to US doing it. I got them confused and he laughed him. Pull the mark. Wahlberg was doing way better. I'm sorry I said at the wrong way. I really thought that was mark. Wahlberg in front of us for some reason his doctorate says why did I think that this is strong wheat? Obviously the guy with the fucking hat and gloves wise. Marky mark so my par- my push ups on my instagram gloves on. I looked at these push ups. I was like Dr. Those aren't real fucking pushups. Neither one of them are doing real push ups you belong with you know that. Marky mark and the fuck out probably decided to go on for numbers and he can't lose a Dr Oz by doing legit pushups doctor is doing. I was bullshit pushups strategy. Here's the problem with like. I Love Mark Wahlberg but I love him on this podcast. But he's he's not. He's not on the table the way he would be without cameras. Oh yeah he's friendly. I want I want to. He's doing great. He's doing podcasts. Don't do it. I'll talk to you off air. Yeah I'm sure he's awesome man he really is. I was in Boston at Medford in the Chevalier. Like a smaller thing in there does it. It's a theater doing you can do the Wilbur of the Chevalier sits seats more. But it sits in Medford Medford lived there for a little bit. Okay so I know you. I know you've talked about effort. And then I got obsessed and bill fucking sucks about this because he just shut you off because it's all about and look look. I'm not mark Wahlberg. I'M NOT SOUTH ON. I mean but like this different spots boss. I was obsessed I want. I want if someone can do this one to all the Boston comics. All of them even like Dennis like all of them want them. I want to put on a map and I want you to tell me about that local area because if you do that with Florida is very simple to wrap your head around Jim. Brewer grew up like lived in Brooksville. I one point if you know Florida you know Brooksville you know who moves to Brooksville right so like I want to. Don't so tell me fucking old World War. Two vet at his young wife really like my kind of people it is. It is like borderline retiree. That's what I want for a neighbor. I want a crazy old. Do with guns with a hot young. I think that what's up Bro. I like how you doing it. I WanNa know all about Boston. And like all my all my friends. I want to know about their neighborhoods where they grew up and how that define them. 'cause I hear Boston and I go was bill. You Dane Gary Coleman I've never really lived in Boston Boston. I lived in Newton which is A very nice community. It's outside of Boston Which is a Newton? Upper falls where I lived. Which is like the blue collar. Even the blue-collar part I went back there. It's a few years ago. It's idyllic. It's beautiful really. Oh Yeah it's so nice. I lived across the street from the Charles River right across the street from this big ass park. The Charles River was back there and I could hang around playing it when I was a kid. Newton was a very a very almost. It was suburban but there was also like elements of rural. Shit there was like rivers and forests and stuff that were really close by a lot of woods and trees and woods where we're Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. From how no. I don't remember where they were from a more of an urban part I mean like I said I lived in Jamaica Plain I for like a year which is like sketchy but Newton wasn't sketchy at all. Newton was nice. It was a good place grow up. It was pretty easy. There's bullshit between kids but there's always every week fucking everywhere you go. You'RE GONNA have bullshit between kids. They're all trying to figure their way through life but like ultimately it was a pretty nice place to live and it also man. I think there's a fucking giant benefit to grow up work. It's cold in the winter. I really do. I never thought my kids getting screwed getting. I think they're I think you're getting screwed if you live in a place where it doesn't get cold. Why because he pills character it also teaches you about weather nature like there's a reality of the consequences of going out when it's cold. You could die out there. There's a consequence of driving on the road where you can't see where you're going because the row doesn't exist anymore because there's so much yeah that's real that can happen. Didn't happen to me until I was like twenty nine thirty. Yeah first time ever doing driven snow. Yeah there's a there's a something to be said for a it is cool to be a grownup and see snow for the first time. Oh I'm sure is probably appreciate it more than I did I see snow. I excited knows why had it till I was seven and then I had it again when I was thirteen so all. Those years lived in California and Florida. Obviously and never saw snow. No one time when I was in San Francisco. Remember House like houses interesting. It's like one of my my strongest memories from San Francisco. It snowed in Louisville. Snow snowed in Tampa in like nineteen. Seventy eight ninety thirty nine. Yeah I remember it so fucking vividly it shuts shit down but it also you. It pays you back with character. You develop character. My favorite people almost to a person in terms of like their attitude about things are all east coast people. Yeah so the people so many of them are so many of our cold weather people so many of them. I mean there's a few that I'm really close with that are. La People that were born and raised here and sound like I like them less. It's just that the numbers of people that are interesting that there's less bumps on them when they grew up in La. You're like yeah so you grew up in Santa Monica. What was that like thirsty? Prominent Hard Day. It kinda rained. Louis Remember Northridge. Oh I bet you do I was hanging out on top of a had a like When I lived in Newton we lived on this really steep street and there was a a part of Above my parents bedroom or you could stand on the roof so you could go out to the back. You climb up a ladder you can stand on the roof and me and my friend J Jewett. Were no sorry John. Jewett Jay's brother Jay my friend to John and I were on the roof and we were because John was date. My sister and we were watching cars. Slide down this frozen street and slamming into curbs. Every car that went down. The street was fucked because they didn't know that it was it was all black is the whole street was black ice and we sat on the roof and there was no goddamn thing we do. How many black guys? No NOT BLACK GUYS BLACK ICE Christ. Jesus Christ I had a visual. Hull Street was visible. Two hundred black is white people read and I'm like holy got so much better. Winter weather black ice. I saw I probably. We've had a lot of weed in pot and alcohol. I probably better than watching a bunch of black guys like it's a slam dunk contests like Oh areas. Jonah's cars just bouncing off the curb. And so we call the cops and we told him. Hey there's all these cars like two cars in a row have come down this hill bouncing off the curbs and so the cops came down the hill. And they fuck. It bounced off the curves. He's fucking shits. And we're watching the power of bounce off these curves and like who's fucking idiot. Did you not listen? We called you man see. Where'd you come off in the bar? You got the phone call. Domino's they can the same way everybody else did. In the same thing happened. We Know Better. We know better. We're GONNA come down like Show you homos how to drive the curves God. I really believe that growing up like that is good for you. I think spending my high school years in Massachusetts was really important is really important shovel. Snow like that was one of the ways. We've made money like you get pumped when it snowed out because you can charge people. See go to this lady's House and you know you knew she couldn't shovel this fucking long asked driveway. Make any like When I'm looking at it trying to figure out like I'm trying to do my math. Math always terrible and you're going to valuable trait is like fourteen. I'm trying to figure out how long it's GonNa take to dig up two feet of snow from forty feet of driveway. You never right. Never my daughter's price point on that some good we're great. Some people were really generous to even get a tip. You know they pay you like maybe one hundred dollars to do a whole long dry put brody would take you all day you know when someone has one of these mother fuckers that goes up to their house and you go to in. It's like two feet of snow. You don't even realize how much work that is dude. I would come home act which is wrecked dude. We were we were at a year at seven thousand feet in fuck in Idaho right. And I love on oxygen We've been riding snowmobiles drinking beers all the way up to this year and get there in the whole fucking deck covered. There's a firepit I I'm so excited. A Florida kid I go.

Every year in cold climates when they don't have someone like a support system like a son or visit them and help them the lot of guys that I know that East Coast guys that live in the neighborhood of their family or anywhere near their family. Like it's almost like understood when it snows out you go over to your mother-in-law's house and you dig her out. Because she's start that's real shit man to die. I think that it's dangerous. And it's definitely an added fucker of life where you like you come to. California like thank God. There's no snow and that's how. I was when I first moved here. My thank God. There's no snow but part of me is like man. I learned from that snow. I learned a lot of Shit. Dude taught me a lot about perseverance because I used to deliver newspapers so I drove every day. I drove every fucking day every day. Three hundred sixty five days a year. I was driving for years because it was the best way to not have a job. Why you have a job. The job was I just had to go somewhere and get the newspapers and then followed route and throw them out the window.

I wish I could have talked to home. We so smart. You know. Sometimes people can they can get in a bad way. Then get in a bad way. You could pull out of that bad way. Sometimes you need to know he needed to know that there's a there's A. There's a light at the end. Gotten I don't know what it was was chemical or emotional. I don't know what it was but he had so much to offer. His perspective is so unique. Such an interesting guy like a genuine and just he could feel the chaos in them. He was a fun guy to discover. You know like when you were when you first found him. Yeah because I think a lot of people found him on their on their own where they were like to this fucking show. No reservations awesome dude. I would've loved to see him. You and him together because he made me tap out we went camping. We let pheasant hunting and Montana and then we went camping and board dangles heart in the paint son.

Sometimes people do funny surplus. Yeah I know yeah. I come off the RAW. I come off wholeheartedly. The wrong way with intention people go. That guy's a fucking idiot I was. I was telling Jim Norton's this morning when showtime did my special machine. Helen I keep saying Helen is her name. She works showtime she had a very very wise tactical decisions said. I think you shirtless is a bad idea. Really she goes I just I just think that going to change the channel man was she right. I had the lowest rated special out of all of them for the whole year was the lowest rate is special and then when I did when that story went viral it was because my shirt off the people recognized it and I think I was saying this. I think it's the thing we're like when big government puts an entity in front of you like when when showtime puts out in front of you and you have the remote you go after fuck that guy like thumbs down but when you discovered on your own online and you go shirtless guy was that the onus is on. Use Your more forgiving. You'll listen. Yeah I think that's the cool thing about podcast. What we do is that like I. I remember I remember discovering your podcast Isla you and Tommy. This must be episode three you anytime. You're doing a podcast. I lose a baby. She saw Tommy buns on the screen and clicked it. It was a twitter Gore maybe my space but clicked it and it was snowflakes and I came in. Isla was watching you and Tom on my laptop and I and I sat with island my lap and I started watching it and from an must have been like episode three four. Maybe even before you started calling the Joe Rogan experience. I was fucking hooked and I was a writer die motherfucker like because I found it. But but if you put podcasts like when these guys say Shit on big deals a podcast and then podcast new podcast I gotta find it when you find it yourself you fucking love it man and I found I found ordain sitting in my bed. No reservations came on. I didn't know what it was at all didn't know anything about travel channel other than man versus food and I fuck in. He did this monologue that I was like two. That's what every guy hosting television wants to do it. His monologues brilliant. This agree he wrote. Yeah he was a great writer as well as just two super unique when he got into digital so happy so happy because that was a fucking shit all sounds like like. I'm going to be closer friends with him. Now because he's energy to. Yeah you're like his knock on. Well Yeah No. What's his name? John John Dudley's like he gets call from you and he's like our I'll tell you. What do you need to know about those that brother with him? It was like such an interesting shift because when I'd known him before he was smoking cigarettes and then I met him. I know actually I met him after he had stopped smoking cigarettes. I knew of him when he was smoking when he was on his television show and then he had his daughter and when he had his daughter stop smoking but I remember reading that he decided to take statins rather than cleanup his diet because it was just so important to him to eat well and he wasn't exercising at the time and he was drinking a lot. But it's so important for him. I mean for what he does and what he loves to just to be able to eat. Well disease the most delicious artistic creations of master culinary assassins and so that's what he decided to do and then when he got in Jujitsu he didn't neither the high blood pressure medication anymore or the high cholesterol extra. He didn't need it anymore. He was his whole body like transformed. He seemed so much more when he was on. Cnn He's same so much more grounded and and help but in some ways but to me in some ways not like in some ways. I was like watching them. Age Very rapidly physically look how he looked like and I you know I love this guy to death the towards the end I see images of a Muslim. He looks he looks like he's it. Looks like he's struggling like He's his body is aging a lot and it could be just because he's traveling so much and he's drinking so much could be many. Many many many traveling traveling with drinking is is very different than living at home drinking trough. It's all rough. It's all rough on the body you know and then you know. Probably all the demons. Who's battling that? He succumbed to in the end. Anyway you know there's That's there's something about that but there was something about that fucking look that he had when he was at that place that was like he just wanted to talk to him because he knew he had some shit to say common. Would've fucking brilliant. My to my wife was before I started watching him. My wife read kitchen confidential does that. His was that his wife disguise fucking amazing bird and nights. I was in bed with island I came on. Tv Yeah Awesome. You met some fucking fascinating people. Yeah he was one of the first ever. Do the podcast to do you remember where it's like real guests.

Red Band like remember the I talk about the podcast like back in the day when you had that landline. That would ring for no reason at all. Yeah kept having to pull it out of the wall. Who's the I guess you got on the podcast? You're like shut the fuck up Graham Hancock right. We went and grabbed Grand Canyon. Graham Hancock in a believe it was Graham and Dunkin and I and we sat down this way way way way early on in I had picked up one of Graham's books believe it's I always say footprints of the gods but it's really fingerprint. God's I'm pretty sure and The book was about ancient civilizations. And it was all about How there's some there's a a massive amount of evidence that points to the possibility that Earth experienced some sort of a cataclysmic disaster somewhere in the neighborhood of twelve thousand years ago and that all the stuff that we see in these older civilizations. It's really complex and confusing the reason why it happened. There's this like this down period in this up period again afterwards because a giant percentage of the population was wiped out by an asteroid that they can prove hit. And he's been proven more and more and more correct as time went on for me just as a fan of that subject because like just what we're experiencing now with this pandemic and just with life in general we we love to think that things are static and nothing static and there's nothing sadder than someone does recognize that not static anymore right. Nothing Outta than a woman is in. Her eighties puts on too much makeup. Or you know or or or a Guy. That's that age is still doing push ups on the front lawn and flexing for the neighbors love. Come on Miss Mary. There's nothing sad about people. Don't recognize that things aren't static and he is He's like the guy who sounded the wakeup call in my consciousness. That man twenty fifth two thousand eleven. Wow this podcast. Going on ten years now has started in two thousand and ten nine one and went to December of Deng. Looks exactly the same? But we had these There's a flashlight over my left shoulder. I was just telling me about those days but that was listen man. You could only have podcast the way we did it if you did it that way but meaning that like no one has to be watching. No one cared. It didn't mean anything dude.

Being a bunch of dudes who world-famous wearing makeup mocked openly mocked by so many members of the music community whether it's radio stations. They wouldn't play. They thought they were a joke. And you're a fool if you liked their music and then they take their makeup off for a little bit. Remember that Kiss Unmasked. Remember that nobody was into it. Act House gene. Simmons looks like I was like hard past but they war everybody out. They wore everybody out. They stayed in the game. I mean they replace two members as freely impede Chris kind of rotated in now and eventually they replaced him with New People that play the same characters as a new dude. Is The cat dude new dude?

We sat one time in his house when Me and Gary and a couple of the guys I was getting wasted and he was just sitting there looking at me and he was like. What are you partying for? Think enjoying it and he goes. What all your success. And he's like I said Kevin I would be doing a different issue. He was he was so you remember. He drove like a. I want to say a Jeep Cherokee on his third season King of Queens hid like he was very conservative. Never yeah well. He's he's a guy who plays the cards close to his chest. Such a sweet duty introduce Minagawa Kamalia. He's the only reason why I've ever been in any movies. I did some terrible movies that nobody saw before but like the movies that I did once I did need to do anything. Any anywhere anymore. In terms of acting was his movies I did two of his music I did a zookeeper and I did Here comes the boom and the only reason why I did it because I love Kevin. Such great zookeeper was fun too so ridiculous. I had to learn how to dance like it took months and months and my time was really interesting. I saw that dance can actually ridiculous man Sebastian. Some of the some I I in all fairness some of what you see is not actually me. Some of it is me but there was this dude. Who's a professional dancer? Who was like standing? Who was amazing. He was amazing. So the the stuff where. It's clearly me I definitely did a lot of the stuff all the stuff with me and Leslie Bibb where at holder and all that stuff that was mu one hundred percent but this is so much better than make where. Where are you? Couldn't tell they stuck him in and he was like built like. May and it was perfect. It was like it. Nobody can tell 'cause he was really good. Like when you see how hard it is to actually dance ego my God like when you see property real professional it's one of the most dismiss things with people dismiss it like. Oh what a frivolous lawsuit than he had dance. But if you can really dance. It's so impressive when someone has full control of their body as Tom said to me. Because I'm a better dancer than Dude I did. I Fuck Tom. Let me tell you that. Cock sucker my daughters my daughters. My daughter's saw Tom's video and they looked at it. And they're like way Thompkin dance. I go you didn't say that when you saw my video and they go. You paid someone to teach dance. I go Soeda fucking he do you think he did it on his own. They go it looks like it. At least I try to do the Irish dance for the release of the special. But you got appreciate the fact that Tom did it in a Steven seagal carrot. Don't ever like if you I swear to God if you watched the video of me watching that for the first time it's a love letter. It's a man reading a love letter from his boyfriend. When Tom I said he goes. How do you feel I said privately? I go made me feel very honored that you did that. And he goes because I love you like when he put that out so much. I go 'cause I thought I put out my dance video and everyone made fun of it and we watched it. We giggled but the fact that inspired Tom to drop eight thousand. Whatever we spent eighty one hundred hundred ten thousand the fact that he made reply video made me so fucking excited when you went so deep. He went so word. You Know Joe you realize what he did. He made me. He told us he goes. I sat and did facial recognition forum. Yeah we talked about it. Oh He fucked Yarbrough. Bro. I'm gonNA stay in bed going getting Tom. I swear to God guy had the Ma Sheen shirt on we sell those. We sell those now. They're fucking going crazy. They're all at my shows. Sheen. Oh my God it's fun to watch. Our fans are fans. Go back go back and forth with US bus balls with us because that's all all we do. Yeah but I know it is. It is fun. It's cool that our specials are back to back because I think look I. I want his special. I want his best will be number. One trending on Netflix. Without a doubt. But don't worry about it. No no no no no no because to watch the mind will be number two number two. Let all the fucking so sad. It looks like you eight Joey. Poor guy that's a real person. Well that gentleman should take this time to better himself. We can all do better. I can sometimes people. Just go off. The rails guy went off the rails is diet and diet diets everything on the Carnivore. Diet during all this craziness. Because I'm just eating. Yeah I'm just eating calories because I like the supply chain and the way things are is no way I can justify only eating meat unless I'm only in my meat like the elk meat that I eat and I'll give you don freezer bags for you. Fuck yes I love giving it away to man. Eleven people cook it but other than that. It's like I need food like. I'm not concentrating on weird. Diets are make sure. I mean I could eat only meat but I'm not even thinking about that right now when I'm thinking about right now making sure that make the right decisions with everything that I do from here out because I think we're in unsung territory or a neverland. How long do you think you can go? I don't know but here's the thing we we. This is what I really feel like. We gotta do this together like it's not. The problem is even thinking. How long can you last was part of? The problem is even thinking that well. How long can we last? How long can all all of us last and I think this is if the power goes out? That's when we're really forced to cooperate and I don't want the power to go out. I wants to figure it out before that happened. I want us to take this plunge into the apocalypse and baby steps. Here's my question. Would you host a Shitty game? Show hold on if it meant giving money to people in need the money in this time they go. Hey Joe we want you to host. Who wants to be a millionaire? He but why would I do that that way when I could do it right here? I'm just saying I'm just anywhere else. No no I don't WanNa boss. You can't do it. Can't well nothing you do. You could do if someone was looking over your shoulder telling you what to do. Some corporate guy who just wants to make sure that he can keep paying his mortgage and funding his lifestyle. And you know he's got a lot of experience producing television shows. You just let me handle this stuff and you do your job. And I'll do my job Blah Blah Blah Blah. Burt we gotta talk drink too much. You get into fat bellies and networks. Don't like it and next thing you know you're fucking different thing to travel channel but I'm sure you appreciate the GIG travel channel just like I appreciate the Giger got it fear factor. But it's not that it's not a great job it is a great job. It's just like everything in life. If you have higher expectations of yourself if you want to express yourself in the most accurate way the best at being comfortable in your own skin the only way you can do this by yourself there. You can have some fucking giant bankrolled machine with hundreds of employees all their job riding on whether or not you say the N. Word Jason. Part would have lost their TV. Hundreds of people in the corporation drunked can't rap lyrics. You can't you can't say those words. Do you realize how many times if there was a corporate raider behind Bert entertainment than the fuck? Are you doing well? That's the irony isn't it? The irony is successful. It is without any of that intervention. If you just are yourself if you just are authentic and that's what you are and that's why it works. That's why all podcast work. They work precisely because there's not a machine behind them is not a giant corporation behind him that counts on them work because they're they're independent. See All way you get real people de the fucking thing that you get when you make people behave in this weird way. It's not a good thing it's like you're not getting an accurate representation of what it is to be a person you can't count and they're they're just lying to you. I mean that's why politicians and political speeches are so strange the almost universally act. Like no one you've ever met when they do in those speeches when they're saying podium doing that thing with their thumb and doing their best Barack Obama impression. You'd literally putting on an act of putting on. I've no idea who you are. You might be a morning deejay from fucking Cincinnati. Hey comb coming at you with a hits. It's Ni- eighteen to six here Europe too early people. You know people getting it done and I mean how. Many of those guys were interchangeable. How many of those guys were interchangeable? And they would you could put them in a strip club. They could be a strip club. Dj they can be irregular. Dj Top forty. There was a voice. Now when someone's talking that voice you have no idea what their real thoughts are if no idea even in not a clue and that's most of what we got with like the today show like if Matt Lauer had a podcast and it turned out that he was superior people would be like. I knew that guy was a pig. They believe be so fucking also Liam into it well if he was just who he actually was right. Like when you're doing a show like that like something like the Today. Show one of the reasons why people are so angry. Because you've been pretending here this like wholesome character all the time. Yeah you been pretending. How great would it be lowered? His Matt Lauer Voice but he was talking about Pony Jackdaw to his team technical. Born and back right now from eight o'clock hour it's Matt Lauer again. Wouldn't it be better if you figure her? Not Be that guy you're on TV and just be who you are when the TV's off. I don't think he knew who he was ever. I think he was the I think what defined lower was being famous. Ooh U's fucking nerve a defined a lot of US getting into this business and then I think a lot of it shifted. I think the good ones stuck to what they wanted to go what they wanted to be. And I think a lot of people still just WANNA be famous. I think it this one of the reasons. Why is because it's hard to be but it's hard to be famous Someone there's a thing that out it's hard to get fucked. Do I get that? He ever seen like some some people. Their intellect exclusive things. You know you know what I mean like. You only want one like if there's only four these bags in North America I've got a get. It girls would get like certain bag. Shoes guys get shoe. Am Travis Scott. Oh yeah there's a lot of dudes are into Jordan's like specific old school Jordan's I'm looking at you. Well you're GONNA sneakers your sneaker head right speakers pandemic about one pair last who you are or they're on sale. Fake Honor Bucks. I get it man I get it I get it. I get it in some ways but you were saying people that are into elite things correlating to famous people. Yeah it's hard to get that bag and it's hard to get famous so when you're not famous it looks like a thing that'll be cool to have like. Oh look this bitch walk on that Red Carpet. Qadam look at those shoes debit. She paid three hundred thousand dollars for that outfit. Look at a chain look at this or that. Karsh got out of a million dollar bugatti right talking about. It's hard to get man if you're driving around town and the fuck in two thousand one. Honda accord and you see someone step out of a Bugatti Veyron. You know cost a million dollars a coalition chat. God you know. There's certain certain things that you see that you just get like really jealous of not because you'd actually want them but because they're so unattainable and people fuck up with that that's why girl get asses. That are too big crazy. And they get this bizarre diaper ass with these little skinny legs and the two things don't work together. Why it's because they. They overshot the Mark Right. You painted your house pink slowdown okay. You had a bad idea and you ran with it. I keep going back. I saw some guy who built something on his house that was basically a fuck you to his neighbor. He built like a middle finger. Somehow Always three chimneys had three like this to build like a fuck you to his neighbor that is such a fucking investment to you. I don't have that kind of money saving and find that guy. That is literally fuck you money. I think he got in trouble for it. I think I think maybe he said something about or something Johnny fingers. That's your that's to you wrote that. Because I fucking hate you johnny. Depp has a big gorilla flipping off his neighbor. I think a guerilla go huge fucking gap like eighteen houses. But he wanted the last one on the block and the guy win cell phones like a whole block. Here's a whole blacksmith night. His House one time. Okay let's slow down. Oh Dude. I have a voicemail from Johnny Depp. I haven't deleted I. I enjoyed talking to him and he was talking awesome. I was drunk and Margaritas in Hawaii and stanhope. Put me on the phone with Johnny Depp and I was like man. How Weird is my life. I'm sitting here talking to Johnny Depp. Mom Hammered in a lawn chair in Hawaii Dude. Stanhope called me one night and I let it go to voicemail. I regret it so much but I got it. Boy Smell Johnny with. Doug you know me and Tom are working on a script. Johnny really good good for you. We visit on the podcast and I was like and then all of a sudden got interested and I was like fucking all right. I'll tell you what I enjoyed talking to him. He's a very wise guy. He's is a very when you when you talk to him. He's there you know. He's a dude experiencing something that a small fraction of all the humans who have ever lived have been able to experience. He's experienced fame on the most preposterous and staggering level imaginable. And then he's experienced that it's almost like he owes people something so he's being held to the standards that none of us would ever want our own lives to be hell to and some weird fucking legal battle between who who did who to what to what happened in his recordings and all this chaos like damn like living this out in the open like this. It's all it's sad because you look at them in a different way because of that. No when you watch the pirates movies he's made is so many good in those movies like so good on so many levels that I've seen them all and we just the first week of pandemic. We just watched all Donnie BRASCO. Donnie BRASCO amazes glow in blow. He's walking out of this world. He's he's one of the best actors we've ever had one of the best American actors that have ever existed for sure doubt. And You keep telling you as someone who talks to crazy people all the time and talking to him. He's remarkably put together as you could ever expect. A person obey. That's as famous as he is. He's a really good guy like you talk to their his talk and he's just talking to you know he's there for you he's talking. Yes good guy he's just experiencing something. No one is prepared for. He's Johnny Depp Johnny Depp. He's Johnny Depp. What how many deaths are there? This one bitch. There's one this one billion people on this planet he's experiencing some weird shit you know. He's not a bad guy. Dude SCISSORHANDS CDs. Everything I mean. That guy is he movies is done. How many movies outlets Ballpark it? I'm GONNA say fifty. Yeah I think you're right. I I'd say Easter you work for like TWAS at twenty one jump street or yeah you're right. Yeah Gel stream him fame. Who's I don't know I don't know about that? I'm on a live in Freddy Kruger. Had thing isn't that funny and he comes back and it's like let's find a way to have a guy with Claus for fingers but he's a nice car have you got killed with a worst guy with closer fingers. Three guys historically in film with Claus Fingers Green but his different because they came out of his knuckles right. They always confused broken off but still came back. Freddie had watching them guy look at that belly amazing that he can T he was beautiful. Beautiful man like like. That's not a normal development. Congratulations to him for making it to be as normal as but he. So he's with this guy who is one of the worst with the claws are fingers and then it becomes Edward Scissorhands. Who's just kind of confused what what stretches a character to to play that as this confused naming colleges. Pena's lips you know. Another weird thing he did you know what I really enjoyed. What the lone ranger the more recent. He played a comanche. And there was a this is like I. I kind of got into this when I was Reading Empire that Summer Moon is a book about Comanche audiobook? It's amazing. Yeah I say reading. I'm lying I listen to audio book too but then I started reading things about it on line. One things I started reading about it is that Johnny. Depp played a comanche in this movie and actually like did some weird shit like yet stuffed bird on his head which apparently some of the command cheese and some different Indian tribes would actually do like crazy horse. Even do that stuff talk but Like he played this like really weird character. Man Like Yeah. He played but it was a really weird time was outside so wasn't Was like super fucking natural spiritual Tonka Tanto who brings a lone ranger back from the dead. He brings it back from the dead that movie. But it's adult movie but you're interested in it because of Johnny Depp. It's part me the character so ridiculous this native American guy that brings them back the dead but Johnny. Depp plays it so hard core. He plays it so to the bone that it's like you really believe that this guy brought him back from the dead that Tahoe the right the original Tanto is bullshit. Got A lot of trouble towards the end of his life for plan. Red Face didn't yeah. That's they called it as red faces like Weird Native American. I thank you. Is that what you're saying is it that he was native American but then he played native American and movies on a little high and keys Mexican. Oh no how did well. We're maybe maybe it's like port part more Mexican part native American thing. The fact is that he talked like. Oh Mitchell horny co me being. That's Hilarious Here's the thing. It was active on the side of a house. That's it it's just chimney nice. Outside of it is CACTUS CACTUS. It was like painted all. You said it wasn't a Chimney Creek. Yeah Oh so. It's just cashless found to be true. That he did this to piss off the councilman neighbor. Some yeah he didn't like them but I would. I'd be like my Gods Alarium measured amount of effort. He put into blue that right in his backyard. So ridiculous and that's a councilman that's why and so that's why he brought it up that's trys. Nfl Utah People. More people are going to pay attention. That guy hates you. Seeping a fine. Johnny Depp's Gorilla Gorilla. I think I saw it on the grill. No no like a big grin inflatable gorilla fucking flea flipping off his neighbor. I think I touched it. What Damn. How much do you drink there? There it is. Yeah Yeah Yeah. What does it say Johnny? Depp was pretty wasted gorilla in congratulatory for so he has his sculpture right in the backyard. Who wanted to buy the house and they wouldn't sell it. Let that go. I love his hats. The a good neighbor a love his hat he. He's the guy. Pull off hats great jawline. It's almost like he's apologizing for being so good looking so he dresses goofy. Get to that place where I started wearing fucking outrageous outfits. You do that. Just lose a lot of weight like from here on out if you come out of this better than anybody like. Let's maybe maybe that's one thing we should do was that maybe all of us get together and have A quarantine challenge. Maybe we should get together. Yeah well this is all under the table with foot. Come on man. What did you say your idea what? He's scared of an end. No finish line. I'm so into this brain works like for all of us like wh what better way to turn this into a positive tend to like to make some sort of healthy competition out of it. I'll also brought over. Yeah Yeah I love it. Yeah Yeah I gave myself a break tonight to be today with Booze. I brought we just in case pod Casper. Big Comedy special on Netflix. We gotTa have fun. It was a success. We did exactly what I wanted us to do. This is perfect. Everything everything. If you'd told me in College Amen Newsradio. You're going to party with. I'd be like fucking drives a fucking Dick Joe. Rogan Larry. I mean this is like my life worked out pretty good. All of our lives have men. You know for me to be me is one of the weirdest things to you know that. I could wrap my head around. I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around all the time I do like an I not to draw back to this but like he brings perspective of like honestly just like how fucking lucky we are in like. When I think immediately I go way staff at the FUCKING STORE. GotTa help man like. I'm like overwhelmed by that. We need to do like a comic relief or something big on our platforms that we can do where we can raise money. We could definitely do that. Which definitely donate as well. You know. I'm I'm donating him waiting for them to set something up. But I think we should continue to donate and I think that Particularly with The people that we you know we have a system of all of us. The wait staff is the management staff has the kitchen staff and all these places and they've all taken a big hit and and it's far worse for them that it would be the same amount of money for us so I think we could pick up some slack. I think we all do that together. And figured out like a good system within all the clubs. We can keep everybody okay. I think that's doable. I don't think that's bad. I think that'd be great for all of us. I think it'd be great for all of us as a community. We'll we'll realize that like hey we can all chip in could be you know I have a lot of meat. I've been giving out a Lotta my comedian friends and you know I'll be tickets on that. Yeah man it's it. It makes me feel happy. Grows and I got into a bone arrows. Good butyl tune in the new house yet. We we're we're not GONNA be able to Rebuild the new house anymore but we use the backyard from your own yard for the new house and we live in the old. No it's not GonNa last forever and this is going to be a hope. Not At least. This is going to be a opportunity. It's going to be. This is the best thing you could say. It's an opportunity for us like you. No one can say it's going to be this or it's going to be that whenever I've heard a lot of people that try to either comfort people or they try to push their point across. Almost they can win this argument. Then there it's more likely to be true and it's comforting and some sort of a weird way but no one knows no one. No no one knew that no one knew. Four months ago no one knew for months ago that four months later would-be here. No one zero people knew that. So if we didn't know that like whoa. We don't know what's coming in for months. Now it can compound. This is still right now. Even in quarantine the best time that humans have ever had ever earth obviously not for the people that are the victims of the disease. We can be okay coming out of this and it could be a wakeup call for people. Stop living these lives. That are unsatisfying. And and figure out a way where we stop chasing chasing bullshit. It's my whole life. Stop Chasing Bullshit to me as a man perspective and I think I don't know if I walk away with any fucking perspective than better man. I think because I was in the on the tour every week every fucking burn it. I remember like I keep going back to this. Conversation with your touring like it's going away and I was like I was like.

I've heard all sorts of different stuff about promising medications. This is within the first couple of months. Do not know there might be something. They come up with a month or two. Who knows do not know the cool thing about the news. Cycle is waiting for hope like waiting for that to get online and excited and go. Oh breakthrough today or but that's why I like you goddamn and when the shit goes sideways. That's when you need a really good leader you really do. You need someone who is honest when all the bullshit goes away when everyone's worried about an invisible monster that want to kill your grandma. What's a sneak into her lungs and shut them down when when people are worried about that? Kinda shit you really want someone who has their character in order you know and this is. This is one thing that we should really take deeply into consideration when we talk about someone being a president or any any politician. Anyone who's the leader? How are they? How did they react? When Shit goes sideways. How are they going to keep it together? Are They GonNa make you feel good about this? The reality of this world.

That's the thing about shaming. Sometimes it works. I know I was fattened. Dotan told me I was. I thought it was good looking. I look at those videos. I go like I'm fine. Does Opaque Murphy talking about a beard. I can't see it anymore. It's funny like fat shaming feels bad. But sometimes you have to feel bad to make changes but so sometimes fat shaming could be like the most valuable thing anybody could ever do. But you don't want anybody to do it to anybody. I don't want anybody to do it to me. I don't WanNa do it to anybody. However it's very valuable happens to help. It's like a goal old that can make you rich but it could also burn your hand. Should you pick it up? I think you probably should heal from the burn. I listened to this APP when I run is called active. And there's this Guy Keam and he'll sometimes the his coach and we were talking about coaching. My wife losing wakes you gotTA trainer. Sometimes coaching can get to the heart of what you need. And there's a part of this fucking run. I do with Akeem where he goes. You know all those people that talk shit about you and I go Tommy. Tell them they're on you. Tommy been pushing this next on. Always crank it up a little higher. Do you have any regret for under performing in the sober Tober any. Why didn't you get after it earlier? Couldn't I never could? I never could fucked in my head my. Ocd fucked up every time everytime fuck my head there was so much trash talking. Everybody wanted to beat. You just wanted to get ahead of you. I got so overwhelmed by those by our sobre. Ctober like so overwhelmed that it would take over at one point at one point. Tom Talk me off a ledge and he goes. Hey Hey remember you're just a comedian really goes you are not an athlete. You're just burt and you're a comedian. Don't lose sight of that because I would get like get over fucking welcomed. I celebrate Tober. Easy peasy we all fifteen sober which McDonald's hot yoga's easy easy. What happened was the next one. I rolled into like no big thing and you did a Haiku with Marshall and I did a hike without a dog and I pretended I lost my dog but the whole jokes that I lost my dog. Joe You do too you do two miles before and then I was like I'm here with my dog Priscilla Priscilla and then I pretend to lose priscilla right. It was a joke. Yeah and that's when the fire ignited new school and I was like fuck and then I started getting like overwhelmed. I wasn't sleeping. I was like getting up to run by my my SCIATICA was hurting. It was like it was so fucking aggressive. That like all the fun. I rolled into when commented the weight loss challenge and I just drank the whole time. Lost like forty pounds all that fun so lost in this job. I was like I'll get a fucking win. I'm GONNA fucking win. Yeah I haven't experienced anything like that since I was about twenty to twenty one years old those last time I experienced that kind of obsession physical leaked into the marathon. We're in here talking about the marathon. And then all of us me and Tom and Ari were at the wrote the NFC championship for the payoff. I was like I entered the La Marathon goes why. I said I'M GONNA run a marathon and he goes. You don't have to and I went have to town. He's like yeah you don't have to. I don't know why you're doing it because you guys said I couldn't and he goes no no. We don't care and I was like I'm going to do it like I was lost. I really only marathon. I remember it but that there's an attachment. I have to whatever that focuses where I go. I do for specials where I get so dialed in. It's really unhealthy. But it's not because that's how you create something great like when you do a special. I know how much energy you put into it. I was obsessed de Obsessive because I go. I would this special I was like. I don't WanNa be the guy that does the same special three times in a row right. WanNa grow I want I want to create. I want to show. My big fucking white whale was like that starbucks. Did I do where I go do you that one? You mentioned your name and I go. That's for me in this way overthinking. It's guy walks into a bar right back to an old school president in mind the way our tell stories. Yeah defines me laughing at jokes but and and it called my friends. It was like my favorite joke. I've written I love potatoes. Sessions not healthy men. It's not healthy to be a regular. It's not that it's not healthy. I don't agree with that. I think it has to be balanced out but I think it is healthy. Because you know that like that bit when it came out it was fucking killer. It needed that. Need all that obsession for it to grow. That's how bit that's a great bit of a bitty really enjoy a really cracks when you get up there and people really laugh hard. It's hard to make one of those and I think there's it's it's worth it for you giving in to that obsession so that the audience could experience like a really well crafted really rocking joke. It's fun it's no other way to make them man. I can't. I don't know another way dude. I don't think there is another way the every special that I've ever put out of always fucking hated immediately afterwards while doing it. I can't believe people like this crab. Sit and listen to it for hours and hours and hours. You fucking hated by the time it's over. Josh said earn our forbears. One Cave Our guy because Heyman love your special and I went really. Use His gun. That's awesome in Potter's me. It's awesome and I'm looking at Thomas did you. Also he goes we. Although it was awesome. And I was like for reals like I DUDE. I know you hate it because you see it too much. You gotta realize if you're seeing special over and over and over and over and over again all the surprises gone right so you just analyzing the light the mechanics of the bits. And maybe I did this. One's better than the first show but that one better than the second show but you're not experiencing what it's like to not know where you're going. The audience is the only one that gets experienced that so it's so hard to get and then the one thing I always say it again because it's just true. I know you're going to see you in the audience watching a special. You're getting one hundred percent if you're at home. Watch on Netflix. You might get seventy. I don't think you really get seventy. You probably get sixty sixty percent of what it's like to be in the room as a human. There's something about laughing in a room full of two thousand other people that are laughing and you're all you're a little buzzed on stage. You take your shirt off and they go and everybody's into it it's like it's a big part of what stand up comedy is is doing it so you're almost just getting a reference point it's like Google maps when you're watching knit in real life watching on youtube or something like that or watch on Netflix. It's like Google maps because it's not like being there like if you if you stood there on the ground you're like Oh this looks different on the ground. You're like okay. The mountains this way and I was looking at Google maps. I couldn't tell because I'm looking down on this thing. That's what it's like when you're in. The audience of a comedy club is like being there versus watching on Netflix. Which is like Google maps? It's way better than not being there. Maps is dope. You can go visit the fucking rainforest you just go look in there. Spread it out pictures with the fucking ground. Looks like from the Sky? But it's not going to be like going into the Amazon. That's one of the obsessions I have with my last. Not this one. The last one was no I had one experience with Tig Where we entire Pignataro man taught me the big. One of the biggest. I've learned stand up. We did premium blend together. And she went first and she for the first time in Life Suck. Dick like literally sucked a deck was so bad on stage and she'll admitted she'll admit it and I went up after an I murdered. I thirteen hundred people murdered. I watched the taping take destroyed because her jokes were amazing. She played for the room. She played for the people in the audience. The people on television and I went to interesting here. I am like raising my voice going like what's up. Ucla like everyone homes. Like to dial your shit down. I learned so much after that I went. Don't play for the people in the room. Played for played for them in the room. But make sure be cognizant that you're making this for a television show. Sh- I don't know whether she meant to dental purposes but man I watched her selling that premium blanda she murdered and I bombed on TV. And I was like you. Don't go in and go. What's up? Jacksonville wait a minute. So you murdered in person bombed on TV TV because possible. My energy was so tired person because it was thirteen hundred. People Vince. You bombed on TV. You can pull up that premium blends but you did well in front of the crowd in front of the crowd put. I was playing louder on the Mike. Did you smoke too much today? Might have making no sense. I just had a good pignataro sucking Dick trying to slide. It understand what you just did their relations on that era. I wonder if people are going to get less concerned about politically correct thing. I think that like Jenny Jamie and I were talking about gender pronouns. Do Not really call me. Whatever you WANNA call me as long toilet paper nice to each other fucking relax. I think that's part of what we're going through as a culture when the outrage culture has because it wasn't anything real to fight against no it was not nothing real that was a real problem as opposed to every other single era of humanity which is like fill with strife in trouble to the only one. Look guns gun control ship. That's on the conversation anymore out the window so many left wing people lining up to buy guns. Now Oh everyone yes including my friends wives who used to get mad if she they even heard talk about guns would get mad and other asking the husband go get a Gun. No Bullshit Noble. About what kind of gun would you have? Where do you keep it that Kinda Shit like Whoa Dude? That's that's that's off the board. Yeah it's off the board. The people listen once refrigeration goes. That's when you see what's up once power goes. That's when you see what's up. We live in a ridiculous way. We live in a way. That's only sustainable. If the super fragile system stays in place I mean it's robust in terms that handles millions and millions of people but it's fragile in the sense that one gigantic solar flare could wipe it out one earthquake wipe it out power surges. Something crazy that You know a asteroid shower that hits Earth. Wipes out everything. There's we were not sustainable. We're only sustainable. Under certain conditions and a big part of those conditions is the power grid. I wonder how much is going to change the way people behave? Meaning hope it does gardens chickens. Rabbits like yeah. We should have community Little little look a little patch of garden in every community in his have an area. You know you have a five houses of one empty lot for five house. He's really brilliant. Right one empty lot size of a lot. That house would be built on and then you just grow vegetables have chickens. Even if you'RE VEGETARIAN FOLKS. Listen to me chickens. You don't hurt them when you eat their eggs. There's no hurting them at all if you if you're if you're feeding them well they're exit. Be Nutritious easy as long as there's no coyotes around. That's the number one problem that I have. Coyotes would target the chickens but other than that he just let him go out in the yard band. They find bugs to eat. Worms T. And then their eggs are delicious. And you're not hurting them and they prefer being in the chicken coop that go to group for safety. Shut him in there. You let him out in the morning delays. There were like my little friends. The best thing your wife ever did in my entire life affecting me was convinced my wife to get chickens too because you get healthy food almost every day. You get several eggs. Look we had a high point we at twenty two chickens and we'll get like ten eggs a day every day ten eggs and eat six eggs for breakfast really good delicious just fucking nutrient rich protein rich and no one gets hurt like a double yolks. One time my favorite in the world. The problem is if you want more chickens than you're going to have to Roosa- Roosa- cocker's there are assholes. They scream in the morning. They wake up everybody. They piss off your neighbors. Everybody wants them to do to chicken. Lane and exiled. Yeah David Tell Him Man Cave doing a podcast Tommy and a chicken letting really aggressive as tells goes where the fuck are. We go out of my home village something like that. We're every day a fucking egg came out of your thought. We could eat it. It'll be so ridiculous. 'cause chickens can eat their own eggs to and you have to keep them from finding that out really. Yeah they find out. Start packing eggs especially eggs aren't there's yeah. Yeah so if an egg falls and breaks you gotta be really careful that the chickens no find out about it because they looked a little dinosaurs pro. Oh yeah little dinosaurs. One of them tried to bite my youngest daughter when she was she was very young. The time I wanNA say she was someone in the neighborhood or four or five when this chickens start pecking her toes and my wife was like. Oh she probably thinks her. Toe is a worm. No she's trying to eat the baby fucking chicken is trying to eat the baby. She doesn't think she's a worm. How come she doesn't think I'm a fucking thing is slow enough and young enough. She might be able to eat it. Because chickens can tell and things are vulnerable little predators man. You've seen chicken with mice before right. Have you ever seen him in real life with the mouse note in real life? I've seen it several times. Rats run amok on my inner chicken. Coop yeah well. There's those chickens will turn on that wrath and catch him thing. Catch that motherfucker in a corner. They'll tear them apart thinking about rats with my pellet gun were rats it anywhere you live in. California where there's hills and people you're infested and fruit trees fruit and it's fucking of garbage cans on a regular basis garbage cans outside in ways inside thing find a way inside your house. Were Living Encino in this. I had a place that was renting. That was totally infested with rats. It was foul man. They were pig rat here running around in the fucking also. I set a trap once and I went out. I saw those a rat and I was lazy so I went back to bed on McLean. In the morning I went up in the morning. They'd eaten it the rats the rats eat in the other rat. It was a big rat to dude. A big fat boy like pregnant squirrel like a fat rat. A big rat and this rat trap kills ship. Tired I was like looking at the set in the morning so I left that route of their went out in the morning to go look at it. I was like Oh shit. Hold Wild Menagerie in my house that time we think about it. I got rats eating each other in the garage. I got a feral cat that I'm locked in a room with. I got two pit bulls. I gotTa Fluff Ball. Cat surrounded with weird animals. I think about I remember hearing you talk about those times when you come home and the dogs would have fought over. Something that happened twice came home in the Torridge. Other part horrible easily was one female that I got that I got from the pound that I got because of Brian. Cowen Brian. Cowen call me. I was like dude. You gotta see this little puppy pit bull cheese so adorable use. You're you'RE GONNA see you're GonNa Fall in love with you. Got to see her. And who is at the Elliott Animal? Shelter my God damn it. I'm like okay so I went down there. I was more on. You know so I went down there and I saw this little thing. She's trapped in the L. A. Animal shelter lease at the time. The place that I'm thinking about I'm not sure if I'm getting the name. Right was a no kill shelter so they operated on donations. They keep an animal life for a long time so she had been inside this place for several months and soon she was really kind of weirded out by being in jail for that long not getting a lot of human contact and someone took her home and I would pet her and love her she would get really aggressive with other dogs to keep them away from her because she didn't get enough love when she was younger so now that she's found getting love. Love was so valuable that other dogs. She didn't think of other dogs is being friends. Started them as loved thieves so they would come near. Yeah so There's a couple different. Instances that happen and one of them happened when the pool guy apparently come over And then the pool guy was petting both dogs and one dog attacked the female female attacked the bigger mail to keep him away from getting petted. She didn't want him to be patched all the pets. Yeah it was just a matter look and I had a bit about it a little bit but it's basically out of prison dog. I mean brought home a prison dog. This dog had been a prisoner a giant chunk of its little life and by the time I got at home it just was not tolerating any bullshit and it had this attitude no matter what you couldn't it love people no no fear at all about it being mean to people but around other dogs it was very dangerous very dangerous. He'd never knew it. Just it's out of other dogs as being thieves thought of love as being like a very valuable commodity and other dogs is stealing her love. God Man that's crazy. Yeah because my other dogs were not like that at all at all one of them I had him since he was a puppy and the other one I got her like right around the time that he was a puppy and she was only maybe a year old herself and she's another rescue dogs and they really best friends so they they were fun together. There are many dogs. Have you had in total five at one time? I had five at one time altogether man. This one time was barking when lightning Whitney loves dogs. Love them if I could have twenty dollars twenty dogs but it's not fair for the dog. The dog dogs need you know. They're they're like family members men they need love that's a lick dog marshalls different than ever had because he there's zero challenging in him. There's these laws. He's not barking in anybody's not growling. Ever he's ground like the play a come up to you like twenty dollars or am I going to. You got that. What do you got her? But his tail's wagging like there's no aggression to him. He's just all love. Who's the thought behind the German shepherd or a a golden retriever? Yeah well I never had before but I heard they're great dogs then. I've always heard they're really good family. Dogs Lab. Black Lab McGill. Which was fucking great. Dogs she died at the bottom of the pool and grab rings. Yeah I mean those are dogs. That people used to hunt ducks. You know those kind of dogs. They're task oriented dogs. You can teach them to do things like Marshall whenever he comes over to like like in the morning. I'll get up in the morning. What's up row? What's up who he always grabs. A toy always grabs grabs brings it to like. He never just comes to you and pets you. He comes to you and shows you a toy that he's got because his jeans are retrievers so it's like a bird hunting dog like someone would shoot pheasant or something like that and he would grab grab it and bring it back or whatever. Yeah whatever bird it was. And that's that's what he's doing and he holds it in his mouth and brings you to show you like you rarely tears. Us toys apart. Mel's he's a sweetest as you go swimming yet. Umbrella I WANNA get. My busy is our new mastiff. I want to get her in the book you can tell me. How long does it six months? Yeah fell in. The Pool is all faulk swim Yeah she got out but we didn't know she fell in. She just came in. And you can see this in this. Dog is just who've no fucking idea what happened soaking wet and when I get wet and then you see she fell in off the look like the steps and then found a way out but man you think you got to teach the dog with the way out of the pool. Yes you got out of the pool and hopefully you gotTa have a dog friendly pool. There's more than one ladder somewhere where you can you know? You don't have a pool where you have to take the dog out yourself. No Yeah you want. What somewhat. Because it's hard for dogs to when they had their paws up on the concrete. Get their whole body up. It's not easy. It's not easy for them to get his for us. You get your hands on the concrete. Onside anywhere you can just push yourself up and sit on the side. A dog can't do that. Dog's gotta go up steps unless it's like some Super Dr something but Yeah man if it was up to me I'd have twenty dogs. I WANNA get Priscilla Mona as the two dogs. The older older dogs when they pass. We'll have this fucking idiot dog izzy and then it's an idiot. Oh how does it fucking six seven months? You gotTA teach them. Oh yeah she's justice like learn man. This dog has so much fucking. It's like it's almost like just like blind. It like what? What are you talking about like. She's on crank all day all fucking day. What kind of dog is it bull mastiff? Yeah that's why those are great protection dogs. Oh so much energy she has got man. Something goes down in the backyard. This bitches Yeah Hope. Bright out there do yeah. She's raised for something to do when a regular person gets Belgium Malam Wa and so it's bringing that God damn thing around everywhere like Oh look at you. You're a little fucking demon. A little black hair demon signed to take out prisoners. Is that the fuck. It's like a German shepherd dog. Yeah exactly exactly the German shepherd dog but they look so fierce man. Those dogs there. We had We use them a bunch of times on fear factor. Look at the fucking athleticism. This fucking thing go to the roof loot. Take this guy down there. Wild dogs man in terms of their athleticism. Look at that thing fly out. Not only that grabble. Have you seen the one where there's a there's a a treat or a ball hanging from a tree and so This Belgium Malwa jumps runs up the side of the trunk of the tree. And then leap sideways. Like twenty feet in the air to snatch this ball this thing walking a tight rope serious across buildings. Bro. You don't want nothing to do with this dog.

Yeah you can't let that motherfucker. Go their amazing that God to how about that. How about jumping over this guy's back jumping into the bed of that truck as it? Speeding the street. Look at the fucking athleticism. These things have and you really only get that kind of athleticism with a dog that is not a giant dog. Yeah like that ways. I don't think they're very big. Sixty pounds yeah probably sixty or seventy pounds for you know although we were just talking the other day about someone who had one that was Real young and it was already ninety pounds. Somebody had one that was like who was that those saying that as one that was like six months and it was already ninety pounds was it. Andy was talking about somebody. Yeah so the average is like seventy five pounds for a male. That's like on the high end so this guy had one that was already ninety pounds. That was six months old so the also had doubled canines the ones that you show us. Great whites like on each side. They have to canines on the top seed. Find that image. Double Canine Belgian Malam.
