Eric Stewart group dot com is the place to go for that? Okay, So when it comes to looking at this current bull market that we're in and trying to make sense of it And going into an election, which is now five weeks away. The question that I'm asking myself is what's going to happen after the election. If this side or that side wind is there gonna be any substantial change to the current environment that we're in, I would suggest that we're going to be in this cove it environment for an indeterminate amount of time and where I think we all believe when this first came in that, by summertime, it would be gone. That, like most flu's, it would die off and we would be able to move on. And you may or may not have read this. But as I understand it, there have been many different kinds of bugs like this. That will come and go. They just die. They're not ableto live and sustained. But this particular one is lasting longer and is likely to continue until we have some kind of a vaccine. And like most viruses that continues to morph, and that more allows it to continue to thrive. If the base of the virus is healthy, it will change its DNA. A friend of mine works in this business for a company called Novavax, which is working on one of the Koven vaccines and in talking with him over golf a year ago. He and a couple of his buddies explained to me how viruses transform and they're they're stupid in the sense that they simply just keep replicating and they replicate, replicate, replicate, and usually the replications go nowhere. But occasionally a virus replicates and becomes stronger or adapt itself to the environment that is in It has been one such virus, and, you know, we continue to learn how important it is to protect ourselves, either by wearing a mask. We're keeping our social distance or whatnot because it appears as if it does transfer through the air, which is also a more unusual So we think about what the impact of covert has been on our lives today, and I don't know if you know this or not. But our life has changed in the radio in that we're recording now separate from each other because we have to keep our distance because we're talking and speaking and singing, and these other things just continue to if if if somebody's infected will share those with the other people in the room, right? I went out for dinner the other night and Actually in the restaurant. I was required to wear a mask in the restaurant. Well, seated at the table, except for my food was served. Waiter comes over with a mask. We're asked to wear a mask, and it seems like that's you know, were generally moving that direction and this is the way life is so you and I, we've all been affected by it. I think this is going to stick around for a while. I think we need to be mindful of that fact. And I think we need to be considered of whether The market is going to weaken and or strengthen, according to what people need. I know I need a home office and you need a home office. Most likely if you have a home based business or you were going to the office, you need a place where you can sequester yourself and get away and do what's important..

"Hey welcome to in the thickness is a podcast politics race and culture from a POC. Perspective. HORSA and I'm Jerry Galloway. Rela. We have a very special guest joining us from Southern California Jacob Sobre. He's award winning journalist correspondent for NBC News and MSNBC and Hey a best selling author. Now, what's up Jacob? So good to be with you guys you know have wanted to do this for so long with you and I'm I'm just grateful to be here with you together I know he's a fan. He's a fan of in the thick fan. Yes. We love that we love fans of the pod so. We're going to be talking about an issue that you have called an American tragedy and this is the issue and the history of family. I don't even like that term because it's really families being ripped apart torn apart. In your new book separated inside an American tragedy you readers through a very intimate look into the policy into the families that have been torn apart and traumatized. You also talk to policymakers and government officials who ultimately were responsible for creating and really promoting this is stemmed separation of an estimated five, thousand, four hundred children from their parents at the hands of the government and I. Say. And still counting. Yeah and despite the fact that president trump signed an executive orders supposedly ending the policy of Charles Separations in two thousand eighteen, the ACLU alleges that there have been more than one thousand family separation since that executive order and more recently propublica reported on how the trump administration has used the corona virus as a pretext to circumvent the normal legal protections allowed to migrant children. So since March ice has circulated thousands of migrant children through hotel black sites making it virtually impossible for lawyers, family members and advocates to locate them and deported them in order to quote prevent the introduction of Covid nineteen into the US. Even though many of the deported children have tested negative for the virus. So Jacob here have reported on these issues for many many years. These policies you know predate trump. So before we get into the current iteration of this shit show, I wanNA talk about looking back into that history and actually. You great job of setting it and in a moment we'll talk about how it's touched of us. Really personally. But Jacob. From your perspective, talk to us about the origins of family separation and how the stage was being set for these policies way before trump entered the white. House. So yeah, you gotTa tell us how did we get here? Yeah. I think Maria. That what the trump administration did and we talked about ripping families apart family separation what to call this really what it was in the words of Physicians for human, rights and Nobel Peace Prize winning organization was torture at met the. Definition of torture according to the United. Nations it was government sanctioned child abuse according to the American Academy of Pediatrics and you know make no mistake. This is on the trump administration's hands. No administration in the history of the United States of America had ever attempted or done anything like this in a systematic way. But the fact that the trump administration was able to execute this policy was only possible because of decades of failed deterrent based immigration border policy by Democratic and Republican administrations. This will come as no news to you. But for people who don't know in one, thousand, nine, hundred, four, the Clinton administration put into place their border patrol a policy called prevention through deterrence. That's why our administration has moved aggressively to secure our borders more by hiring record number of new border guards by deporting twice as many criminal aliens as ever before by cracking down on illegal hiring, which was designed went along with the first wave of border infrastructure walls. Fences what have you and the idea was that by doing that people who are migrating to this country quote unquote illegally would have to go on more dangerous or deadly journeys to get here and sure enough you know many people have died trying I e let them die trying. Let them die trying. That's exactly right. After the Clinton administration. We had the Bush administration which obviously created H S and expanded the border patrol exponentially dozens of agencies charged with Homeland Security. Will now be located within one cabinet department. With the mandate and legal authority. To protect our people, the Obama Administration obviously deported more people than any other president ever no matter how they are. No matter their reasons. The eleven million who broke these laws should be held accountable and we got to this place where we had donald trump is president saying when Mexico census people, they're not sending their best they bringing drugs. Crime, their rapists, often not the pictures of Jay Johnson walk through the same facilities that I saw separated kids in and look yes. The Obama Administration Limited circumstances did separate parents and children from each other and the reason that they did it was circumstances where you had parents who were perhaps violent criminals or dealing a narcotrafficking but they never did on a systematic basis Jay Johnson? The Homeland Security Secretary, or Cecilia Munoz from the Domestic Policy Council. Bowl said to me on the record in my book we could never do. What the trump administration did it doesn't mean the idea wasn't proposed. It came up, it came up in the situation of the White House but they never did it and the minute Donald Trump became president. This idea was on the table right about a Valentine's Day meeting and twenty seventeen and the officer Kevin McLean then the acting commissioner of Customs and border. Protection they wanted to do this from the get-go and now the results of of this policy are very familiar to all of

Britney Spears' Ex-Husband Wants Her Back
"Events daily pop. Hey remember when Britney Spears married Jason Alexander for just fifty five hours. Well, he wants her back now. Yes. They're right. Jason was spotted at a free privy protests at the courthouse yesterday he told us weekly. He still has love for Britney and he'd quote definitely the open rekindling their romance quote if they would give us an honest chance. Is he serious right now old what is furious? Is this heat in? Los. Angeles put that photo backup with the orange shirts. I can see that under boop sweat real quick. You know how hot it is in this Place look at. That alone. Look better though. Her he looks good. But I just like what is this guy I mean he clearly has nothing going on like the fact that he's GonNa show up even just give us weekly any sort of exclusively come on. This was how many years ago twelve thirty claims that two thousand four was when this fifty five, our wedding are. happened. They were childhood friends they got married very briefly. Now they've been I think in touch a little bit throughout the years I doubt recently my goodness. So the things he had to say about Sam you guys San has to be so livid right now. Right. So he said I got to see this code and he said I don't know him. He looks like he's in good shape but I'm in good shape. So Bravo to him she's got some type of feelings for him I. Guess I'm like Oh, my Gosh San if he ever sees you, he's going to punch you in the face. He's never gonNA. See Him this guy ever not a factor in her life, and this is the problem. What happens is even though he went there with good intentions quote unquote this just makes everything that Brittany's fighting for a spectacle and it makes it joke and if he really loved her and really wanted to be a part of her life and really wanted to help her, he would have stayed away from that camera and not became this headline. One hundred percent, and also for him to be like if they gave us an honest chance, she doesn't want you like I. Don't know who they. Does not she has no interest in rekindling your relationship I. Promise you that I don't know where he gets off thinking. Oh, if they just would just believe in our love like she's not petitioning for you bro at all, she's not looking for you in any day. Ever Gosh tell it like it is mortgage. Ed I love the. If a man sit outside like that for me I would feel some type of way about it in the. Sweat It's always flattering, right? It's always flattering to see. Talk about how he wants you back I. Mean it's Nice to hear whether you care or not of. The protest was held at the courthouse because there was a hearing about getting Brittany's data removed as conservative as we told, you yesterday according to court documents I'm really wants her care manager Jody Montgomery to step in permanently. So Jason has thoughts on that to telling US weekly Britney doesn't want to be under the conservative ship and he wants her to get what she rightly deserves. So how does he? Oh, how does he know he has not been in contact with her is will be. Governed from ghost talking to this man talent him where Britney saying he has no idea and Britney has said exactly what she wants and this for him. This was kind of a bold move because this hearing wasn't about changing anything this hearing was about let's check in. Let's see what's happening. The real hearing will come once they file papers and once she puts in court writings that she wants this change. This guy's making it worse for her get off her bag they offer not it's just. Weird. Do you think the intention because he wants Brittany back or he wants his own fame or he just was truly going there out of love for Brittany, and truly feels that she feels trapped and was trying to be a voice for her? What do you think I can't believe this I can't believe this is our Abe. Block. Are you kidding he therapy for fifteen minutes and it's going to be four because this is the last time we're talking about this. This is insane person. We have not heard one word about this person in sixteen years six I'm too hot over this. Crazy. You'll get the fifty. He'll get the fifty because what will happen is Cara Delevingne will see him on the news noticing that he's getting airtime. So then she'll date him to make Ashley Benson Jealous, and then he'll get twenty minutes. Oh my God. We're bringing car delving into this way. Okay. Well, let's move onto a couple that we've also talked about a couple of times before. New Year. So Tomorrow Laurie Lachlan and her husband Massimo are scheduled to be sitting for their roles in the college admissions gets scandal at the same time. The government's recently filed sentencing memo raises questions about what their daughter Olivia Jade may have known. So here's the new stuff. You guys. So Libya is never mentioned by name in the document, but they're quote. Younger. Daughter is referred to specifically prosecutors say in one incident Laurie Mossy Ma and they're quote younger daughter discussed how to avoid the possibility that a high school counselor would disrupt their scheme. So the family has not spoken out, but a source close to the family says their daughters had nothing to do with this. So if what the prosecutors are saying is true. That Olivia Jay did know about this do you feel she should be punished as well as her parents? Here She did no I just hello even if she knew or did not know she is a child and was a minor at this point in her life. That age you do as your parents tell you to do you follow suit you. You'd even realize the difference between right and wrong I could barely drive through MC. At that point by myself, give me a break. There's no reason that this young girl should be punished for anything like I understand her parents made a mistake we've been talking about it when I was reading the research is warning I was like for over a year literally been talking about this now for over a year and it's dwindled down to two or three months and five months number one. The she was seventeen. Leave her out of it. It's not relevant for her to be involved with the fact that their names are mentioned I get it. They need to be to kind of paint a full picture you do what your parents, how you to do. This is how we're getting into college. Sweetie you go. Okay. Mom just let me know where I need to be et Cetera not true Morgan you do what your parents tell you to do but let's say let's say you've got some awful parents right? Like I'm not saying these people are saying you got some awful parents and they say honey were broke I want you to go steal some milk and some candy bars and some cereal, and you know what? Go ahead and grab that xbox to they won't even suspect you. You're a teenager just go do it. Okay. If they get caught that could go to Juvie or get some sort of legal. Question. So Matt Your question. Your mother. Makes you sign your name on legal documents that puts you as a as the lender on alone and your mother then defaults on it ten years later should be. Held Liable Harris of thousand dollar loan that your mother made you sign for when you're seventeen or would you fight it? Well that's different because you would never have hypothetical situation that happened in. Dollar Loan. Drill, trust. It happens on sweet bitter. I just saw show where it happened. So where do you bring up that example? I agree with Morgan when you're seventeen years old if my mother would have told me sign the papers for this D to my kidney I wouldn't have asked two questions about it because my mother told me. But my problem is. This is the problem my judicial system we're sitting here worried about what a seventeen year old may or may not have known meanwhile Brianna Taylor's killers walking around free and the people who accosted Eliza McLean have not been nothing has been done to them. We know exactly what happened. We've seen the camera footage we've gone through everything. Why are we focusing on this and not focusing on what we do know?

What subjects you cover? This. How did you feel about because. Back into this stuff I was doing in the noughties was. was. Everyone was pushing things as far as they could. Really, and there's definitely been a you know but I think I always even in the nineties we were still we would always discuss the repercussions of unwanted. What the point of them was! Saying I don I think I think I can pretty much defend nearly everything. As not just necessarily good chances are it's it's gratuitous. GRATUITY is is poverty, I think when I think the thing that's changed is now things get taken out of context a lot more readily easily. And because the social media. Just even like this and I just There's a thing that came up this week, so there's a group of people on twitter. Who Because one day I tweeted? When Sam Smith. Came out saying they wanted to be the. Pronouns and I said Chile justice polite to cool people. Buy Whatever they want to be called. You would just do that as a course of action so this and then a lot of. You know Gremlin. Like people included grey linen. Got In touch me. That was wrong and that would mean people with raping people in toilets if we started doing that. And so I didn't. I replied to two people, and then there was this avalanche people I stopped replying to anyone because. It's not worth I don't like these people I. Don't know where they're coming from I. Wasn't I could understand both arguments that point out of sympathy for? Some of the feminist arguments that that. I did have point actually. These people maybe think now you can all go fuck off. Anything I signed the way they the way they came was just awful, but I stopped. Replying to anyone, but then someone said within that conversation retiring has replied to all the men who've posted a none of the women and so. I don't know what sex they were I didn't check that. But you know. I just stopped replying very quickly and then even now someone put list of people. Who Will Not reply to women about subject nine replacement so this week? Twitter I picked up personal and said this isn't in any way. But the way that like something taken out of context and something that stated by someone, because even grandma and it was gonNA reach Y Y. You're prior to the women, not the men, and then I couldn't reply to anyway because he was a man of I replied to. Separate. But I wasn't doing that, but I couldn't say that's not what I didn't do that because that would be pretty much, but you know it was amazing. How that among some people that is that there's a fact about me. I am a I'm an anti-feminist because I want let me respond to men and not women, which I don't think you. If you reflect twitter, feed would bear even as a regular thing, but you know that if you take one joke, might one joke, and you can take junker Michelle I didn't two thousand seven and putting out on twitter and people go. Oh God. But within the context of the show it would work is you know it? It worked as the journey of the character Richard. Herring check so yeah I. Mean I think things have changed in that way, but I think yeah. I would hope you can still. And I still think for most people I think most. The vast majority of people don't actually give a fuck which isn't a as isn't a positive thing, but makes people think I still bamboozle by most of these these arguments about this, but yeah I mean I think it's not. If! You A- confident that you understand why the the target will joke water is. In in my case is nearly always myself. Then I. It sort of find, but yeah, it is. It is a win. They I'm glad that I'm glad that. Dark humor is not been ruled out in the you know the for example that we start talking about the hung over pregnant sketch of. Film, you know got you say some people get well this period blood in. Is that too offensive and. It's the opposite of that is is actually it's the minute you said that that he. Is Weird, but. People would. Would not want. Yes, that's so that's. You can't take into account every single criticism. You get something you've. GotTa. Come from your own from your viewpoint, but yeah, it's been. Thirty Years Obviously I've seen a lot of changes in. In. What is acceptable, unacceptable company, but I think a lot of the stuff in the ninety s that would not look back and go. That was awful. I felt quite I. Felt I was saying other people doing those things and feeling quantum factor that time, so I think that's probably why I can still wet now because I didn't. Didn't didn't I? Didn't really enjoy. Stand up in the you have. The male dominated lavish. Stand up with the ninety S. I kind of felt really embarrassed about. And I think means to sort of largely that we were in loaded and things occasionally, but we are always embarrassed when we were. It not like all right. Wait loaded. But also that we all like thing I think is important is. Like, don't we reserve the right to grow and changes people like I definitely would understand. I'm show if someone. Went through my twitter that stuff's I'd be like that. It's fucking horrific. I don't know why felt that was funny. That may be some like. Edgy twenty-three-year-old Castle an on an. It's the whole thing like. Especially when you're taking tweets from someone history I'm being like they. They use this word what they was. The I, mean they? Do it, but yet Mari Black the brilliant pay. They'll be like. Oh, look what she said, but Matt's was like. Oh, she's foul mouth and she stupid. No this kind of stuff like but look. She's an incredible impatience. Passion she. Don't get to dismiss her body of work because you manage to find one tweet where she doesn't come out of a brilliant. If you're going to be a pious also so like look at what people are doing what they're putting out in the world, not just what they're saying what they doing like. Will look like with you like. With when you do on, November nineteenth such a fucking thankless bull, like thing to do to raise money for refuge, unlike if you're going to take away from that, you don't care about women like that's not. That's an agenda that someone's bring into to the table. That just isn't isn't true. Yeah well it's. It's interesting to see all that stuff, but yeah, absolutely right and I really high. I hate the idea of anyone making A. So bad that there is no, unless it's then driving a bus through school Yuksel. Bring, you know there's. There's no way back from two sets have an opinion. And then what do you want if they if someone? There's this idea that people are hypocritical if they then changed mind, but that's surely what you want want to.

As a teenager or a young in my twenty s you know is not accessible to anyone. Terrible terrible. Thanks you. Might you know but I think you know? Basically we would write a diary in my diary I've read bits of diarrhea and shows in headmaster, son and A lot of awful stuff in there. That I wouldn't like people think. Belief that. Better anyway, yeah, it's it's. It's interesting, but you know I I. I can't see comedians changing that much that they won't be dark streak. There can be at most comedians have at least a doc streak in them jug, celtel backstage the seldom on stage. And this and I think it's it's about whether you trust the person I surprise. The audience has to trust the, and if they do trust you, you can sort of say anything because they know what the you have that complicity of friends that you can do you do with your friends with an audience, if the audience trust us in that way, they know. That, you're coming from the right place if you're employing irony or if you've just you just pushing things into place to. Because because a lot of companies, surely about That release valve of the world is often awful place..

What do we what we do? This club like great use what we can't keep going forever. I'm not pater out I. Don't get support For the Comedians all the charity say. An so people will sort of chipping was I. Put a new person on an as a thought about that, but then doing is putting on a very inexperienced act into a very unusual way of performing and because I think it takes real like some people nail straightaway, and some people need to sell themselves down in Tokyo. Way into it. But it's some people have just stood up and done this sat and it's like it's a bit like doing radio like you do it down to one person and and it works, but it's amazing. What brilliant amazing comedians get in their head about just doing it on a Webcam. not doing Joel Dome It. I mean like doing this stunned up to a web count so. So I hope it, and because we do on Zoom, people pay for front or ticket, which means I just go right? Let's have a chat to someone, and they can raise their hands, and it's like Natanz Pie. We go into the house. It's so. We also competitions. Every week is great. Right? 'cause we're really lucky I'm leave town via like literally last week when we did the quiz that have really great neighborly Trussell, and they number like we can give you some bid to give away, so it means that we can chat to people and give bear. Why do these competitions because basically trying to make a bit of a community on its work beautifully from so nice and supportive on all the Shit himselves, and then they come off, and they see all these amazing comments on instagram and twitter on you. And you get that validation back, it's so lovely and we have music sought with them. Have I am able to break normally a week because of drunk too much, and then we have two more acts, and and that's it and I just just I usually do immaterial before bringing the first comedian but it is to slightly a bit a couple of minutes long.

I like fucking lutely, yes, good and Got Russell. Kane, Angela bonds delete search upon debt, so it's a broom rising. Bill I I'M GONNA sort of interesting. Because I I worry. As much about the COMEDIANS which I'm worried about. We try to write some money to help comedians through this, but is the clubs as well so whether they'll be even if there are no clubs when we come back but I wonder whether there's a way fullwood for company cleaner comedy clubs. Can Do same as you and maybe charge people like a couple two or three quiz. If you get, the whole, can get an audience around the world of a thousand or so people. Then you then you can make that work because evening. But then also when they come back, maybe they should be live streaming gigs around the world as well because it is much better seen live comedy life, but I don't think we're going to be able to do it effectively for a year. I would say you know certainly. I mean three months is is the best possible and now looking more like seven right more months I think before we get back and then, if and then whether people will turn up to to see live gigs at night. So I think my online, it might push. It might be a positive thing in terms of pushing promote is in understanding how much they incident could be a positive thing and also comedians as well to understand that they can. GET FOLLOWING POSS- real mine I, it's been a really interesting thing to say, and this isn't like an. Is. I. Think it well. HEADLINE TO BE?

Officers investigated over photos at Elijah McClain memorial
"Water. They're accused of taking disrespectful pictures at the memorial for Elijah McLean, the black man who died in police custody last August. In a statement Monday, Aurora's interim police chief said the department has investigated a report that multiple police officers were depicted in photographs near the site where Maclaine died. Sources tell CBS News those officers were imitating the chokehold. McLane was placed in just days before his death and that the photos were shared with other Aurora police officers. The police Department says it will release evidence of its investigation into the inappropriate photos, including pictures, and the officers identities very soon. Laura Podesta, CBS news judge says the former Atlanta police officer

Elijah McClain's mother says officers "murdered" my son
"Longer protesters and demonstrators and activists continue fighting for black lives. The more stories of police killings of black people seem to be coming to light and pressure is now mounting for a new investigation. Into the death of Elijah McCain. It happened after an encounter with three officers last August in Aurora, Colorado. Go to the family. The 23 year old was out buying ice tea when somebody called 911 claiming that MacLean was wearing a ski mask and quote acting weird. His family says, Yeah, he was wearing a mask, but it was to deal with social anxiety. Within 15 minutes, He was put in a chokehold and then injected with a powerful sedative. CBS's David Begnaud has the story. Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop. I have the right stuff because you're being suspicious. Rely on I'm going whole relax, or I'm going to have to change this situation. The district attorney investigating the case says that Elijah McClane dismissed the officers requests for him to stop. The 23 year olds family says he was just walking home. He was listening to music. When Aurora, Colorado police approached him last August, the D A. Says McLane was carrying a plastic bag when police tried to pat him down and he refused. He's then heard pleading with the police as they tackle him and use a choke hold on him. Paramedics later arrived at the scene. A medic gave McClane ketamine to sedate him. McLane was taken to the hospital. Three days later, he was pronounced brain dead. 10 months after McLane's death, more than two million people have signed a petition calling on Colorado officials to fire the three officers involved. So far, the Aurora Police Department has declined. CBS News is request for comment. Dave Young is the one who decided not to charge the officers were the actions of the officers justified legally. Yes, Mr Young. Do you believe there was a moment in this where the officers could have de escalated a situation? Absolutely. 100%. They could've done a 1,000,000 things different didn't need to die on and the fact that he died does not warrant the basis for criminal charges in the body camera video cops or heard saying that MacLean tried to take one of their guns. He went for his gun. Mari Newman represents McClain's family. Don't you think if you really had grab someone's gun, we would see fingerprints ended the lifted from the gun. Did you find any evidence that corroborates the officer who said he reached for the gun? I had no evidence to cut. Predict that Shin in McLean is Elijah's mother. They? They're bullies with badges. He wanted to help people. He was a massage therapist. He not only heal others that he killed himself. He was able to accept love give love various forms. According to the district attorney's report, the medical examiner was unable to determine a cause of death. It is important to note that walking around with a ski mask is not illegal, and when you go back to the 9 11 call, the caller didn't say that Elijah did anything illegal. He said. Hey, there's a guy wearing a mask. He kind of is waving his hand. Seems a little strange. You might want to check it out. He says He might be a good guy might be a bad guy. When the police responded instead of observing. Instead of watching hanging back for a bit, the police moved in immediately to stop him. And everything went self from there.

Outside is closed!: Whats COVID-19 doing to kids in the long run?
"Outside is closed. That's being. My daughters. Go to phrase for the past three months. Outside not totally closed anymore of course, and now that the weather's nice. We want her out there. We want her running around and playing in the backyard, and exploring the neighborhood and just being kit. But sometimes she refuses, and then she says it and I wonder how long that phrase will stick around even when we get back to normal I'm not the only one wondering staff and the experts are worried. On Wednesday, the hospital for sick children issued a report. It recommends that children be allowed back to school in September even though it acknowledges the virus won't be radical by them. It says that the risks of infection and transmission in children have to be balanced with the effect that closed. Schools are having on kids, physical and mental health. And that's the worry that I keep coming back to and I suspect many parents feel the same way. What do we know about the long term impacts of kids being yanked out of school isolated from their friends for months on end. How does that? Impact kids at different ages and in different situations, and how to researchers even attempt to study this. What don't we know right now? About the long term impacts of covert on kids, and what will be likely, find out in the years to come as the Kovic. Generation grows up. Jordan Rawlings. This is the big story. Sir Mr Superman is an editor at large at mcleans at large right now. I guess means at home with the kid I saw. A LOW Jordan. Why don't you start because we're going talk? About the long term? Impacts that we know and don't know about cove and kids. But why don't you just start by telling me what we do? Know and what we've learned over the past few months about what? This virus does two kids, so we do know some things. It's a confusing picture even with the things that we know, but the things that we know are that most kids don't seem to get sick from it when they do get sick from it if they're if they test positive at infections tend to be milder, the symptoms tend to be milder. So? That's what we do. Know We don't really fully understand why it doesn't affect kids. There were theories floating around early on research out that show that there were. Particular features of young immune systems that handled the virus differently. But there's now a range of research showing very different conclusions. Their studies that show that. Children don't translate the virus at all. Their studies that show children transmit the virus worse than other people, Children Research, showing the children transmit the virus, but a slower rate not much as as adults, so it's a pretty mixed picture between what we do, know in what we don't know. And in the meantime we're kind of stumbling around in the dark with kids at home. Not knowing what that's doing to them with doing to them, and then the last thing that I would add about the things that we know. Is that a couple of months ago? There were these terrifying reports out of hospitals in New York. Children afflicted Very rare that kids who either test positive for Co, bitter or or test positive for Kobe antibodies meaning they've had at some point in the past show these symptoms, but there are symptoms associated with a very dangerous syndrome that. It's causing. Oregon shut down in kids, heart failure, and so on. It's extremely extremely rare, but as a mother who wrote about the experience. For The Washington Post. Put it. It's rare until it's your child. And you know all of that stuff. as parents is terrifying, especially, because there's so much, we don't know, but even that is relatively concrete compared to I. Guess what we know about. How this is actually impacting kids beyond the itself in terms of like physical and mental health. Yes, exactly I mean the virus itself does not affect kids in great numbers, as does the elderly for instance, but the measures that have been put in place to. To flatten the curve and to stem the spread of the virus, affect kids in very particular ways and as every parent who has a child or children at home. That the measures are hard at everybody, but there particularly hard on young people who are trying to navigate various developmental milestones in stages in their lives, depending on how old they are, it's pandemic. That is quite unprecedented in the last century in the last hundred years, and so we don't really have all that much research that shows for instance what what it might do long-term to a child. There's just a lot that we won't know until we start to come out of this and start to. See The impact on kids and refrain that I heard repeatedly in that I kind of. Sensed just from talking to kids and talking to parents is that it will probably vary quite a lot from child to child. We and I'm going to ask you about some of the reporting an interviews that you've done but I just as as a mom I guess and I kind of mentioned this about myself as apparent in the intro. Do you what? What's your sense on? How profoundly this is going to impact kids how how much they'll remember of this. Will it be something that sticks with them as they? Turn eighteen as they turned thirty I, suspect it will be in the first month, or so I tried to get my my son to keep a diary in. I tried to get him to write down impressions because I thought Oh, this will be this thing that he will look back on the strange period in his early life, and it'll be this blip as the pandemic continues in his measures. Put in place you know some of the lifted now, but there's always this hovering threat of a second wave, and the possibility that we will return to some form of of pandemic measures in lockdown measures. I A starting to have the very real sense that this may not just be a blip. Oh, five or six weeks that happened at one time that it may be something that that stays with kids. I don't think it's necessarily all doom and gloom in the way that it stays with children. I went into the story. Concerned about things like anxiety, mental health, and so on, and and some of the effects that I heard about those researchers, and for the kids that I talked to. surprised me. There were there were benefits and some of that I see in my own child's life, and he seems mostly happy. He missed the school and he misses friends, and he misses being able to have normal contact physical contact with people. But he's done things. My my my son in the last three months that he never done before he rides his bike down. A downtown Toronto Street right in the middle of the street. He scooters around unsupervised and so in some ways it. Reminds me of my own childhood. Growing up in India in neighborhoods that didn't have a lot of cars in them and kids were just playing on the street. What's it like? Talking to kids about this because you, you didn't just talk to your own son. You interviewed a whole bunch of kids at various ages I did yes, I think the younger youngest child that I talked to was six or seven seven and. The oldest young person I talked to was eighteen, and it's really easy to talk to the kids about what their lives are like, and and how they feel about this time, because for most of them, the coronavirus doesn't actually Lou mauled at large. They don't think about it as this terrifying. Thing lots of the younger

"mclean" Discussed on The Knowledge Project with Shane Parrish
"They think about things what could be more interesting than that or even on this Elon Musk piece I did going to buffalo in meeting employees who worked at the solar city factory there and hearing their stories, just human stories on a narrow micro level but human stories. That's just the best what stuck with you that you remember from meeting buffet the big thing that stuck out to me. This is going to be a little bit. A little bit odd was that. Was a long day. I was pregnant with my second child. I think I had the flu utterly exhausted by the time we got to dinner. And I was it was kind of running out of questions to ask them to be perfectly honest. I was tired. And I remember thinking. Oh, I can ask them about giving his money away to bill and Melinda Gates, and this is going to be awesome, because all billionaires like to talk about all the good, they're doing in the world, and how altruistic and philanthropic they really are, and he'll just talk, and I can just hung drink my milkshake and sit here, and so I asked him, and he looked at me, and he said well I don't. Don't really pay much attention to that. That's not my focus of interest. I mean I want to help the world and I want to make the world a better place, and that's why I'm giving away my my money, but I'm not really good at that at figuring out where the money should go, or about what what projects are the most worthwhile. It's not my passion. It's not where I where I spent my time, so you know. And and I, was like no but I it. It stands out to me because there is that. Maybe it's back to that argument that are part of our conversation about people spikes there is that figuring out what it is? You are passionate about in relentlessly interested in, and then you're gonNA pursue that thing with a passion and creativity in an interest level that is different than things that you don't have that for, and so maybe I made me think that. Maybe some of life is figuring out how you do the right thing. Thing in the areas that you're not passionate about you know if you're warren, Buffett and billions to give away. You don't say I'm not interested, so I'm sitting on my billions. You say this isn't my passion, so I'M GONNA. Give my money to somebody who has passionate, but you don't pretend to be interested in the things you're not you, don't you? You? You are very precise about where your interests and talents lie. That's really interesting. especially given the diversity of the stories that you've covered from Enron to fracking to the housing. Situation where where does your interest lies it in uncovering story? Yeah, I, think I think I'm far more for better or worse far more of a generalist I just like to try to figure things out so when I hear something. That's interesting. That doesn't make sense, or that seems provocative. I. Just want to figure it out. My interest is not specific to one area. It's just specific to the general idea that there's this conundrum. Conundrum or problem are interesting thing that I don't understand coming to the the buffet meeting. Did you change anything about what you do? I mean one of the one of the things that I was thinking of. There's like other things in your life or your I spent a lot of time doing this, but I'm not passionate. Therefore, I'm GonNa like outsource it or give it to somebody else or just not pay attention to it. I think I do that pretty naturally anyway. I mean I. Don't know how to turn on a stove and nobody with any sense would never let me get behind the wheel of a car and get in my car with me so. So I suppose I do that. Pretty naturally on some of the mundane aspects of light. On Sunday you're trying to get better. No, I harbour this belief that one day I'm going to go to cooking school and I'm going to merge a master chef. You know in my seventies or eighties or something like that, but I'm not now no! I'm I'm sticking with being take. What would you say people's biggest misconceptions of you? Me? Oh I don't know I've. Had People say to me Oh you're much nicer than I than I than I would have thought so i. don't know maybe there's that because they review and build you up into this thing that you're. You're not I think maybe I have a tone in some of my in in my stories. That sounds that isn't. That may be lax lacks humor. How is your skepticism around Businesses in general translated into what you do for investing. I don't invest I have zero interest in it I mean it's almost pathological in some in some ways although. Maybe it's a good thing in that I've never had the temptation when I hear something really interesting going on in the world whether it's Enron is a fraud or the subprime mortgages are going to blow up. Our economy or fracking doesn't make any money in this industry is going to implode the last thing that crosses my mind as ooh. How should I invest my own money? Just doesn't I think oh? That's a great story I wanted to tell that story, but it just for me does not translate into any kind of accent I would take in a personal portfolio kind of admirable in a way, because then you have nothing to lose by reporting something that you believed to be the truth, right? It's not admirable. It just is you know it's not like I am interested in putting the idea. I've heard to work and I. Don't do it because that's not the right thing to do. It just doesn't even it's not even interesting to me. What's the next story you're working on? So I am I'm figuring that out. Is there anything that it's particularly get your interest well I'm back to looking at at fracking, because this idea that which is what captivated me about it that the industry wasn't financially viable. Despite the fact, there's this juxtaposition with fracking or this disconnect in that that these two ideas exist simultaneously, and they're both true yet there they they were in such conflict with each other in the two ideas were that. fracking and the incredible levels of production of oil and gas is changing the global economy and reshaping geopolitics, and the other idea is that this industry doesn't make money in isn't financially viable and the idea that those two things could could coexist was really interesting to me. Talk about cognitive dissonance, and that's now proving to be true as the industry is imploding, or the financial weakness is becoming the defining feature of this industry and you now you now see it imploding, and so how that plays.

"The piece I wrote was shell musk's flaws and show. How always a truth teller he can. can be a bully who is an a liar and someone who is going to line his own pocket and I. Think those are all valuable facts to know as we think about Tesla, bigger picture, but you could also make the contrary argument that maybe those flaws don't matter, and so in the broader sense, maybe the peace will prove to be wrong because musk will be everything. Has Believers say he is both true? You have somebody that does. I'm trying I'm struggling to think of an example of somebody who's exceptional at anything. That doesn't also have incredible flaws in other areas and I'm not saying this with you, but just in general like we look at these these very exceptional people, and often were looking at one aspect of their life, or they might be exceptional, and the rest of their life could be falling apart right so they're not maybe not well rounded individuals in that sense. That's so interesting Jeff Skilling used to say that he liked people. People with spikes and what he meant by that was that he didn't like well rounded genial average people. He likes people with a really exceptional characteristic that defined them, and that may come at the expense of other characteristics, and I think we took that when we wrote smartest guys as a bad thing, but your question makes me think about that and think. Maybe he was right. Maybe there is something to be said about that. But maybe as you think about people in in a business context, the trick is which flaws matter, right? So in the case of Elon Musk doesn't matter that he doesn't always tell. The truth doesn't matter that he's a bully. I'm not sure it would be really interesting to try to think through what flaws matter. Just what particular right? Thinking locally here is I have friends who are incredibly successful. But if you told them to drive their kids to school, they'd be like. Where's the school? I have no idea right so they're not necessarily. This wall rounded family person. but they are incredibly successful at what they do in part because they have this relentless focus on on that to the cost if you will Yes, but I think re relentless focus on one thing to the exclusion of other things, the different argument than a character flaw right that said we we all have character flaws, and sometimes I've thought just a little bit analogous to the visionary and fraudster argument that life sometimes turns on whether you end up in a situation in which particular flaws are on full display. Right because we we all have them and some of us just get lucky and. And our flaws aren't pulled out. Highlighted at other people just stumbled limelight. Other people just stumble into situations where their flaws become the pivot on which all else turns, but we're all flawed right, but in the in the context of a business as you look back as a CEO's character, our leaders character what flaws matter to the success of the enterprise, in which which ones don't come back to that question. I'm going to actually pose that on you, but. I was thinking as you were saying that. Maybe that's not a character felt. Maybe it is right like if you're not there for your partner, or you're not a good father. Is that or mother or is not an aspect of character Steve Jobs would provide that right? Could you be the exception we draw rule from this, or is this say he could be an part of part of what's gone wrong. In modern Silicon Valley is that. That everybody believes is the rule of right, so all sorts of character flaws have become forgivable, because hey, look, Steve Jobs and look what he did and flaws of almost become a good thing, because that those sorta towards your philosophy, a marker of brilliant strikes. You can't possibly really good unless you're really suck and all these other ways. That's fascinating. I hadn't even thought of it in that way. Right like you can't be exceptional unless you. Talk to me, but some of the flaws that. We think don't matter if you're running a business so I think people tend to see this intellectual charisma or the ability to intimidate others around you into belief. As a good thing because we all follow that kind of blindly, but I think that's probably not a good thing. At least if you believe that a collaborative environment and being able to second guess and question, and here doubts is what makes for a better outcome at the end of the day, then that personality type would be utterly antithetical to inspiring the kind of collaborative open environment that we all say we want yet, so there's. There's a hypocrisy in that or a conflict of the in in that we all say we want this collaborative environment, and yet we tend to follow people who don't foster that because their own cult of personality is so strong. Do you get more skeptical as you dive into something when you see somebody with a strong called personnel, I do I do just because I've seen it in so many cases where it hasn't ended well. Are the cases where a dozen real well Steve, jobs right? That's total cult of personality. Maybe again. Maybe it comes back to your argument about I'm trying to think of another one there I'm trying to think of another one, too. I'm sure there are others wasn't the founder of Genentech. Right I'm just blanking on his name, I think he had a cult of personality I think. Phil Knight Phil Knight at Nike, who arguably Belsen, incredibly successful business I think he had something of a cult of personality I think Jamie diamond does. And I think he is a fantastic CEO but I don't think. I think I guess it's different I. Don't think from what I've seen of Jamie diamond. He does actually foster an environment in which people ask questions and push back and are quite an are quite are quite open, so maybe that's what it what it hinges on other other flaws in people that get you Get Your Business. Look. You're writing side excited where you're like Oh. This is getting more and more interesting other than this cult of personality well, certainly, when people are obsessed with their their company stock price right, but that's an obvious one, but that relentless.

"Mike Pearson was the Slovenly Guy with everybody knew it a drinking problem, and yet for some reason he had that same intellectual charisma I think they both had this in common that they took an old business that was problematic in the case of Enron. Energy men in the case of Mike Pearson Pharmaceuticals and said we're not just a company where reinventing this industry. We've got a better mousetrap and I. Think for people who think they're smart. There's something very alluring about a smart person saying. We've, figured out the system we've cracked. We know something nobody else knows. We've cracked the code. Right and then I think there's just there's a certain amount of confirmation bias and all of us right Enron. Stock did really really well for years. Valiant stock did too so it wasn't just that the market was reinforcing the belief. It was also that smart people could look at the crowd of shareholders and say look at all the other smart people who are here and I think that the the lesson from that is just because a lot of smart people believe in something actually doesn't mean it's right. It doesn't mean. Mean it's wrong right and that's obviously a data point, but it doesn't mean it's right. US pook with a lot of the smart money is in valiant, or you're familiar with them. What happened after volume collapsed with those people? was there a retrospective and admission of Oh? I made a mistake or was it like this is just the odds in investing, I, think it depends on who it was I think it's been pretty devastating to a lot of people and I think the smarter more thoughtful people have spent a lot of time trying to think about why they got it wrong. I think they're still a little bit of defensiveness. In that the viciousness of the way, in which valiant fell is reflective, I think of the point. I made earlier that this company made so many enemies that once the tide turned. It just turned. But I think people have really tried to think about what went wrong and her me. One one part of that is when a company is doing something that might be perceived as highly unethical it. There's this odd Almost leg because everyone knew that valiant was taking existing drugs, and raising the prices on them to unconscionable levels at everybody knew it, but for some reason there was this weird inability to see that what a big problem that would become when it became widely known I remember sitting with an investor and valiant, and he was talking about Martin Shaq Rally in how awful what Charlie had done with Derek Prim was, and I looked at him, and said wise valiant any different any thought about his well. That's a good question. And, so there was an odd inability to take what was widely known and understand what would happen when it really was widely known I. Think it was research for this where you had a friend with Wilson's. Hud. The nerve to take the copper. And there are on this dollar a day. Drug in valiant had raised the price to three hundred thousand a year from a dollar a day. And I thought that that really speaks to the human impact of some of those know. The flip side of that is like they need money to do rnd. And and so where do you draw the line on that? How do you think about that? Having done so much research into the well weirdly enough I. I am actually more sympathetic to Martin. Short even than I am to valley and even though. I'm not sure Martin had he had. The time would really have done what he said he was going to do, but he said that with the price raise Sarah. What he was going to do was funnel that money. Those profits back into our in D., and I don't know I guess I'm fifty fifty part of me thinks he really would have done it, and the thing is valiant wasn't doing that, so their whole premise was their promised to. To investors was. We don't need to do our day, so it wasn't an argument of. We're GONNA take. The prophets were making from this and invent new drugs that are gonNA save people's lives or figure out a better drug to take to treat this disease. It really was their argument to people and investors repeated this to me. was well this drug? Even three hundred thousand dollars? A year is still cheaper than the cost of a liver transplant. Transplant and so as long as where cheaper than the cost of a liver transplant, then it's fine that we do this so I think some of that speaks to just this murky moral line in in in things in a way that laws can ever legislate right i. mean drug companies just didn't use to do that. That just wasn't the way they operated you. Had Merck famously create the drug that helped blindness right for almost as an altruistic. altruistic endeavor because there was just this sense of a company is being an actor in this broader world I think is the focus has been on shareholder, value and prophets above all. It's just narrowed the prism through which executive see the world, and it's become very tempting to say well, if it makes money than it's good, talked a little bit more about the company being than ecosystem. What are the moral obligations? What are the responsibilities the UC? accompanies having, or is it solely to the shareholder? I struggle with this because. I understand how in a very complex world how appealing, it is to have this bottom line ideology, because clarify right. If you get to say, my only responsibility is to make money if it makes money than it's good, then you found your God right then. Life is very simple and clear and complexity. You can cut through the complexity with single-minded goal. If you don't cut through that complexity, you say well, if it makes money, maybe it's not good because it's hurting the community, it's a lot more complicated. And how and how do you measure that then right? And that can become in of itself that belief that a company has a broader purpose can become a cover, an excuse for a lot of bad behavior to right because fake altruism is almost worse than single-minded profiteering right. So I don't know I think it's really interesting. When the Business Roundtable came out with that statement in the fall that accompanies, purpose is broader than than a bottom line. There were no metrics around there, and there was no even thinking about. How do we gauge this right? I think the other part of it. That's interesting. Is that when you look at the history of corporate America up until the Dawn of the L. B. O. era in the eighties that was the purpose of company. It was supposed to be broader in General Motors was Mama America and Apple Pie. We'll take care of everybody forever, and that doesn't really work either so I guess to summarize when people think about the purpose of a company being more than a bottom line, most people. People think this is something new. It's not new. It's old and it didn't work perfectly the last time around either so you can't just say that you actually have to think about how you're going to implement it and I think we're just at the very early stages of that interesting, because we often think of it that mostly with public companies, but private companies are also companies, and they have a lot more freedom in terms of how they operate with social or other moral consideration..

"American Apple Pie thing about stocks rising and believe such that the you you would think in a rational world. It would be exactly as you said somebody who has a skeptical view. That view would be just as welcome as somebody who believes, but it's not. There's this idea that shortsellers are bad people, somehow because they might profit if something fails and that was true back in the day when I wrote about Enron even journalists said to me. Will you took a tip from short seller? How could you do that I I thought everybody's. Everybody's biased. Company management is biased. The analyst who is a buy rating on the stock is biased if for no other reason than confirmation bias, right and portfolio managers who owned The stock biased and so yes, shortsellers bias tube. Everyone is but there is still this in you. Even see it on twitter today in the Tesla battle that somehow shortsellers are less valid. Human beings are their point of view is inherently evil, because they they don't believe in the company direct line from that to sort of like people getting hurt or losing money, whereas the opposite is not equally true. Right or you're selling something that might hurt somebody in the future, but it's not as visible. It's not as tangible. Although. Counter argument would be that a rally overvalued company who stock eventually collapses under its own weight is going to hurt a lot of people when they happen 's. So why not have the view out there? So that doesn't happen and then catch up. Innocent people in that in that plunge taught me a little bit more about this bias towards belief that we have. How does that affect people inside? The corporation is is why we don't have more whistle blower I think it does I've I've often thought about this because. I left an investment banking job and went to Fortune and I guess ninety five and I thought well, if I had gone to an executive recruiter, and they had said there's this great energy trading company down in Houston Texas what about a job there and fight ended up at Enron what I've been whistle blower, or would I have been a believer and I like to think the former, but I suspect the truth is probably the latter, because I think I think culture is so so important, and so if you're inside a company and your pay depends on that company. That's the Great Upton Sinclair. Quote, right. We can never tell him. Anything of his wallet depends on him. Not hearing it. Something like that. If you're inside a company and e-, everybody else believes and your economic wellbeing is dependent on the company doing well and the stock doing well the idea that you're going to be able to again shift your perspective and step outside that and be able to see something that isn't in your interest to see I think that's beyond most of us. There's a reason that whistle blowers tend to be outsiders right. That's a really interesting observation. You also covered valiant. Talk to me about the differences between valiant Enron can talk when I start with a similarities, please gene so I think the way in which they're most similar is not super obvious, because most people think of Enron as a giant fraud right, but it, but it really wasn't. Most of what Enron did was actually perfectly legal, so I I coined. This term wants which I love, which is illegal fraud, and that's what what Enron was. Because most of the transactions they engaged in even the ones that appeared to be the most problematic, actually met the letter of the law. It was very much a follow the rules sort of. Of argument, but totally violate the spirit of the rules managed to follow the accounting rules, but totally misrepresent the economic reality of the business and valiant in that way was very similar, and that most of what valiant did was actually legal, and that's why you didn't see any prosecutions. After very few prosecutions after the fact, just a few lower level people in the subsidiary business, so they're both equally problematic companies in different ways, but they have that in common, which is the way in which an ethical failing can actually be more damaging than illegal. If that makes sense, oh, and here's another way in which they were similar. I'm doing that around the similarities. I am on the differences, but I think about this a lot that if a company makes a lot of enemies as it's on its way up, you have to be a lot more skeptical about that company than about an average company. Because when the tide turns, it's GonNa. Turn viciously and what I mean by that is that everybody hated Enron because of their arrogance and their callousness in the way, the company and its employees behaved other people. Their competitors hated them. Regulators hated them, and so when the tide turned, it turned viciously in the same thing was true. True valiant everybody else in the pharmaceutical industry hated them particularly after the battle with Allergen David. Pie was beloved and Mike. Pearson was not and so when the tide turned against valiant at turned viciously, and so I think that's a an interesting, an interesting broader lesson, the ways in which they were different I. Don't think the substance of the valiant story was accounting misrepresentation the way the way it was with Enron you could actually see pretty clearly that what valiant was doing with its with its numbers. There are a lot more of Enron shenanigans that were really hidden from from plain sight valiants. Wrongdoing to me, really centered around the price. Increases the way they were increasing prices on drugs to transparent. What was happening with valiant? Why did so many smart people get fleeced I? Still struggle to figure that out because that is actually a remarkable difference from Enron in that with Enron. When you got to what was commonly considered the smart money people, either weren't invested in Enron, or they were short, and it was largely long only funds an index funds and what we think of. In terms, but the dumb money that was that was invested in Enron in valiant, that was not true. Some of the smartest investors we have from SEQUOIA TO VALUE ACT TO BILL Ackman were big believers in in this company and I still can't quite figure it out I think a lot of it comes down to the power of personality and I think Mike Pearson. WHO Like Jeff Skilling was a Mackenzie allom had just this incredible intellectual charisma, and for both men was somewhat unlikely Skilling was kind of a door transformed himself into this naven..

Such a big kid like I woke up the other morning going. Okay you're forty two. Maybe start acting a little bit like your forty two. But I'm always going to be useful. Don't act like a child but feel like a child Ed. It's just awesome like watching movies that bring me back to a moment like you said like this. Like Washington state marshmallow man. Like I tried to show my oldest ghostbusters. She walked out like in time in time he excellent said is that movie. You know like I always quote. We came we saw we kicked ass is what I'm talking about. You know. Yeah so what? What was it like when being in a band? I always had a moment. One time I was in Boston and and I was doing. The Wilbur is the first time I did the Wilbur. One show folded out of a so proud of myself but I stood backstage where the heaters are and I thought is just me like it's always been just me like ultimately. I have no one to high five. I have no one to like hug it out with and go. We got here. It's always always just go. It's a weird feeling so I'm not. I'm a person WHO LIKES TO BE AROUND GROUPS. I'd be in a group by good but I'd always go so you did it brats like what's it like being in a band like with the main engine mates you. You said it. It's fucking team. Were family were brothers. Everyone's first marriage You know I mean. Most of us were single when this whole thing started a couple of guys at girlfriends one of them's girlfriends now is quite but you know we've fight like brothers. We laughed like brothers. We've gotten drunk like brothers redone. Everything like family and because of that there's this newfound respect now all of us married. All fathers is new level of communication. That happens now. That didn't happen in the beginning because we were all just so excited that we're actually doing this. And then when I kind of lull came it was like you know what we have about three months off. I love you but please call me. You know I just want a break from you You know we've gone from all being on the same tour bus to now having our own buses but that's because we have families people think. Oh God they`re. They're on their own buses. They've there there must be turmoil in like no reach this all five of us in our nine kids. That's not going to happen. We would want to then we want to go but it is nice to know like after a show you feel one of these on your shoulder going to kill tonight or man. He's Johnny Greats night last night. You sound like Shit but tonight you started great you know but like it is nice but at at at the end of the day though when we get back from the show we shower and or in our rooms. You've you've still got to have that moment for yourself. At least I do because I'm I'm a super insecure person but to be able to have that moment by myself and look at myself in the mirror and go new Dick Job. Today actually did a really or a really good show. You kinda messed up here but you made up over here and I never used to be able to do that where I can look. You know pat myself on the back You know I felt my wife on the back daily. Because she's a fucking superwoman.

sometimes I mean it I am saying so I'm really excited to talk about something you guys are now providing me with the grid because before I was just flying blind yeah because you'll right away somebody Alexis had a weird dream and I had a weird dream to I'd draft right before I woke up the today was Saturday imagine my dismay when I woke up and it was Friday to find it was Friday so that was my dream so if I'm a little that mean if I'm a little better today that's that's the reason everybody dreams I have no idea I think itself X. one yeah you had a weird dream though lex I did it yeah hi and I woke up weeping okay well yeah that was it was surprising but I didn't feel that weird anyway so what happened was I was walking down the hallway in my house I turned the corner to go through to see the front door I see on hell at the closet there and they look at him and he is so happy he is just carry on with someone smiling and just having a good time that I look at the front door and my grandma mirrorless is there now she passed away about four years ago we were very close she's the one who taught me to knit and you'll spend a lot of time together made less city gather and a whole bunch of you know she's my one of my favorite people in the tire world yeah and I look over I see her she's glowing the sun is beaming right on her she's happy she's smiling she looks so great like young and she was in her signature red and I lifted she lifted her arms like come and give me a hug and I was just like oh my gosh it felt like just so real and I went to step toward her and she was like a hologram I walked me through image in my dream I understood like all right either I must be dreaming or well this was so joyful and what a great moment but then when I woke up I started thinking about it and thinking about her I just lost it you haven't lost it we've talked about dreams about dead people before dawn on the air tell us again what that means well depends on who it is in your dream if you if did she speak to you or did you speak to your mind to mind did she move her mouth yes she did okay then you're just dreaming of your super conscious mind which is the part of your mind that's most connected to your correct creator so it's it's about the spirituality and you being connected to your true self and your purpose for being here maybe you were thinking very deeply yesterday about something and you were also going through just the compartments of your mind especially if he's in a doorway you were probably trying to enter a certain part of your mind that will connect you to that but you were stopped by something that you thought was real thoughts about something and maybe you were interrupted by it that's why you had the dream that where she turns into a hologram you're not really connecting with that part of yourself all wow Zacks as I ask all the people I dream weaver does any of this resonate absolutely I mean I've been thinking a lot of things that I hate you I mean just the quarantine just the news you're just the last you know few weeks now for sure but especially yesterday I mean you know I'm not sleeping and a whole bunch of other things but and family and thinking about her a lot too yeah that absolutely resonates yeah because sometimes we just go throughout our day and playing animal crossing we don't think anything yeah I don't know who you're talking looking out the window as Turkey's or whatever and that's really what you were doing on what if you have a dream about playing animal crossing all of them is your name then Jason that you're dreaming about it in in your waking life and I am proud of back no shame whatsoever what so lacks which is you know very weird for me because we've talked about this I don't remember my dreams often at all uhhuh and when I do they're really intense like this yeah it's a cell phone while you're still trying to tell you to go ahead and if you didn't like what happened in the dream it's telling you that you had an opportunity to explore that deeper and go there and you may be pulled herself out of it so we stopped yeah yeah you your inner self wants you to go down that road a little bit more fascinating wax file one of all the people to dream about your right I mean your goal your grandma means so much to you yeah that out of all the people in your in your universe for her to appear that's you know in seeing her I mean I felt so joyful guys I mean I saw her and we were just like only because you know she was moving her mother you could understand the words but I definitely felt like a heart like a cut like a soul connection I know that sounds no no that sounds but that's how I felt I mean it was so powerful so well that's a good dream though I mean that's yeah I know that's a that's a nice little moment we and I'm not saying that she didn't come to you in your dream I mean they say yeah our mouths are moving moving and they're talking it's really just a part of your mind you're dreaming about and if they're not then they did visit but you know I don't know the mysteries of the universe he said laughing say that again so if my body comes is in my dream and he doesn't talk to me what does that mean like I'm talking to him huh only him oh god wait leave me alone leading you around you understand what he's saying to us through mind to mind connection yeah weird who do you want to leave him alone way cool hello.
