Interview With Micah Larsen, Hilarious University Marketing Professor and Mom

"Thank you so much for being with me today. Thank you for having me joanne. Absolutely fill in the blanks. What did i miss about who you are and what you do. Oh boy. I am a montana toddler. Mama which means that. I spent my time outside. Four seasons of the year chasing my one year old around right now league us. My background is in social science. So i'm actually a trained social scientists in published research on persuasion so that was kind of made. I love if you will. I married my husband. Eric works medicine. And so this has been a very interesting time Yes australian co bed. I'm sure you can imagine for all of time spent apart. We have a one year old wilder. Tell me about how you came to be part time professor. Yes i went into academia. Because i love people in their brains since i came out of the womb. My parents would say that. I asked why about everything. Why why would you now. I understand as a mom myself. So i found that social science was the key to why people do what they do and i fell in love with the idea of studying people's brains and how we form relationships in dot world of communication research. There's as little tiny nisha research called social influence or persuasion. And so it's basically the science of how we get people to say yes to things and within that i researched health communication so basically how we get people to say yes to wear seatbelts or donate their organs or in my case have safe sex so like use a condom and that was a really interesting topic to study. Oh my gosh. that's so fascinating. Yeah i think. I missed my calling. I listened to several podcasts. That are along this line hidden. Brain and invisibly leah and i like revisionist history with malcolm. Glad well even. Though i know that he's more of an observer at he's not as much of a scientist but i just find anybody who thinks about humans and what they do and how their brains work in a different way or a unique and new way. I'm so fascinated with i. I just can't even get enough of it. So i love eating this. Yeah you hit. The nail on the had hidden brain is exactly my realm of study. I love it. And i actually wrote a blog post about one of his episodes about tunnel vision. I almost felt like it unlocked. A part of my understanding about other people that was missing about how people can make such terrible decisions because they're under duress and there's a whole episode. I think actually unsafe sex. And you're rational decision making in your thought process when you're sitting in your office chair. Drinking a cup of coffee talking to a girl felt like well. Of course. I would never put myself in harm's way but then when you're under the influence of infatuation and the moment somehow suddenly our brains make different types of decisions but that that episode about tunnel vision. There's so much more there. I think he just kind of grays. The tip of the iceberg on why people make unexpected unpredicted decisions and why people kinda dig themselves into a deeper when all of the outside observers are going wait. Why don't you just stop doing this and start doing this. But because they're already in that whole they just can't you know yacht. We get super married to our convictions. In so our brains are really uncomfortable with information that goes against our beliefs so we end up seeking out and believing information that even if it's not really good information as long as support previously held beliefs. We just roll with it. I haven't heard the tunnel vision episode but that sounds exactly like the type of research that was doing which kind of explains like people who believe that cohen is a really scary disease will contain to believe that more and more staunchly. Yeah they will reject data to the contrary they will collect data to the consistent. Exactly that is exactly the same thing we do with politics and so many things all right. Well let's do rapid fire questions. If you had to describe yourself in one word. What would it be bold awesome. What is your number. I'm in achiever. Which i think is a three with an individualist swing so achiever in midwest yes okay. So three wing four. Fold your baby. I love it. What is something unexpected. That has changed about you in the past few years so i became a mother which wasn't unexpected. Because i didn't know if. I wanted to have children but i became a mother in a very unexpected way which i'm sure we'll talk about. Yeah gosh. I can't wait to hear more about that. Wow becoming a mother is like the earth shattering and paradigm shifting. I opening and exhausting. What's the scariest thing you've ever done for fun moved to africa. Wow you did it for fun. And when was that twelve years ago. I was in college. Amazing and africa is a continent. Where were you in africa. Yes i was in ghana which is like no armpit carnival area of the west coast.

Keep Your Eyes on the Lord (Micah 7:5-7)

"A chapter seven verses. Five through seven put no trust in the neighbor. Have no confidence in a friend. Guard the doors of your mouth from her. Who lies in your arms for the son treats the father with contempt. The daughter rises up against her mother. The daughter in law against her mother-in-law a man's enemies are the men of his own house. But as for me. I will look to the lord. I will wait for the god of my salvation. My god will hear me. On a powerful few verses as mica describes the conflict the division the lack of trust between people between him and neighbors him and friends even warning about a husband and a wife and potential conflict there and then with fathers and sons and and mothers dis summary statement at the end of her six. A man's enemies are the men of his own. The house like what do you do when people who are close to you let you down in some way people who are closest to you people you have looked to win leaned upon and trusted in mica chapter seven. As for me. I will look to the lord. What a powerful contrast. But as for me i will look to the lord and the pictures clear. I will look to the one who will never let me down. I will look to the one who i can always trust. I will look to the one who will always always always be faithful to me. Who will always care for me with wisdom who were always uphold me with his righteous right hand who will lead me and guide me in ways that he guarantees are ultimately for my good. I will look to the lord. I will wait for the god of my salvation even that at this picture of dependence on god waiting on god i am trusting in god. I'm leaning on god. He will come through for me. That's what he says. My god will hear me and not just hear me. The whole picture is gone will year and answer me when i call to him. God will help me when i call to him. Oh be encouraged today. I just think about all the divisiveness and the world around us the culture around us in my country. They've had the divisiveness. Even among god's people sometimes among professing followers of jesus among people that you want to look to lean on trust in and mica chapter seven verses five through seven is just reminding us to keep our eyes fixed on the lord. yes to be an fijian's four kind of way eager to maintain the unity the spirit in the bond of peace and the church eager to be peacemakers. As god's word calls too eager to honor everyone eager not to promote division to heal division like these are all thrust that we see in scripture ways. God calls us to cultivate peace and seeking unity particularly as his people. I mean she just prayed that for us so clearly in john chapter seventeen and such a clear theme we see all throughout the new testament at the same time and this is kind of the point. Right keep your eyes looking to the lord in the more you are looking to the lord trusting in him honoring him following him. The more i am doing that the more we will grow in unity together the more we will grow and fellowship with one another our unity revolves around jesus r-unity revolves around looking the lord waiting for depending on the god of our salvation knowing that he hears us. Oh god freshly encouraged reading these verses to know the right. Now i can every one of us can look to you and know that we can trust in you.

Filled with the Spirit (Micah 3:8)

"Mica chapter three verse eight. But as for me i am filled with power with the spirit of the lord and with justice and might to declare to jacob his transgression and israel his sin. What a beautiful verse in the middle of this chapter so mica at this point has been talking about false prophets as addressed in many different points already in this short book in the old testament but here in verse eight. He says but as for me. He begins talking about his role as a true prophet. He said i am filled with power with the spirit of the lord not with the spirit of this world with the adversary who wants to deceive with false prophecy. False teaching that which not from god. I'm filled with power with the spirit of the lord and with justice and might so are already in this book. Mike has been a mouthpiece for god's judgment upon his people for their injustice in their oppression of people yet here. Mike is saying. I'm filled with justice and might because i'm filled with the spirit of the lord. And then he says all of this filled with power the spirit lord with justice in my to do what to declare to jacob his transgression and to israel his sin to speak about the seriousness of aggression and sin against god and to call people to turn to him. So how does this verse lead us to pray while. I don't wanna make an exact parallel by any means between followers of jesus. Today you and me have trusted are trusting in jesus for salvation because there are some unique things that characterize mica here but when we turn the pages the new testament we see these realities applied to every follower of jesus his what regius told his disciples before he ascended into heaven. You will receive what you will receive power when who when the holy spirit comes upon you. My zen phil with power with the spirit of the lord like this is an awesome thought that which mica experienced as a prophet in the old testament. Every follower of jesus experiences in the new testament. You will receive power when the holy spirit comes upon you. Mica says with justice and might yes like we have the spirit of god in us. The word of god to us about what is just and right and good and we have the strength of god living in us his spirit dwells inside of us y when mike say i'm filled with power the spirit of lord with justice in mind to declare to jake transgression and to israel his sin to tell people about the series of sin and the salvation of god. So why do we have. The power of god's spirit living in us remember what jesus said to his disciples. You will receive power when the holy spirit comes upon you and you will be my what my witnesses you will witness to who i am what. I've come to do to save people from their sin. You will testify declare to others their transgression their sin in my salvation. Mica chapter three verse. Eight this is you and me as followers of jesus and so many ways so god. We prayed you'd help us to realize this today. Help us to live in this today. Help us to live accordingly today to realize that wherever we are whenever our job is are there were student we work in this capacity or that capacity wherever we are whatever we do god help us to live filled with your power with your spirit inside of us with justice and might gut help us to do justice to do that which is right and good strength of your mind. Fijian's six ten be strong in the lord and the strength of his mind. God help us to live in your strength today and with your spirit in us. Help us to declare to other people their transgression and sin and your salvation. God we pray for holy spirit. Empowered boldness today to be your witnesses. God we praise you for micheals faithfulness in his day. And we pray that you would help us each one of us to be faithful with your power your spirit your justice your mind to declare your word help us to be faithful today we pray in jesus name

"It'll be fine. It'll be what it is. It'll be the hardest teaching year of your life. It'll be a great story to tell ten years from now. Maybe I don't know about resilience and and you know the fact that teachers have to endure so much stuff and become nurse that year that you had to become nurses well in addition to all the other jobs that you did. You know by with biohazard equipment to right if you think about the equipment that we're going to be wearing to protect ourselves basically, we're protecting ourselves for biohazard. It's like, wow, that's a new level of. Teaching commitment. Administering I mean. In an Ontario, the the public health official, the head public health official in. Ontario. Said super casually like like off the freaking cuff and it's like, did you just say what I think you said she said teachers will administer. Corona virus tests and like the Internet exploded. Like did you just say that teachers are going to give students corona virus tests like how many lawsuits do you want? Seriously it was just the craziest thing wide ever. Heard. Just totally like it was off the cuff and it was like she walked that one back a little bit because, hey, newsflash teachers aren't nurses bell. We're not law enforcement either people you know, I just think it all the things that people have decided that we could do we could carry guns to go ahead and protect their schools we can give a test. Biomedical tests imagine that you're like the training that are all amazing nurses and doctors and medical professionals around the world and how. How? Much medical training. You have to have to do that correctly and to make sure that you're safe as well as your patients and saying that some teachers are going to be able to. God isn't that something? Yeah. So so there are there places that will do this just fine. There are places that will be absolute nightmares and again I said it last week going to say this week there will be students and teachers who will die. And that's going to be horrible I mean and. Say we don't want to be pessimists about are being like we're not being I don't think we're really dramatic at all realist. Yeah I mean this is it's real and it's here at each week we're going to report what what the next you know. The I listen. For instance, if you're listening to ask for rainbows and Sunshine I, don't know where they got that idea from I. Mean we're going to have to have a rainbows and sunshine segment Mike because it's going to be you know how that local or the news segments I don't know. They did the same thing in. Canada. They give you a thirty minute newscast to give you twenty nine and a half minutes of devastating. Horrible. Votes for thirty seconds in the last thirty seconds is nice beautiful stories of someone that did something beautiful and ability for other people on amazing lifting up story. You don't go and go. Or? Someone on our team to find. Positively story yeah. We need a positive story at the end of each. At the end of this segment each. Start delivering. What doesn't look good I mean. It's GONNA be. It's GonNa be this whole year. It's not going to be you know we're we're GONNA be talking about this through basically next through this entire school year twenty, twenty year will bring you stories of how teachers have kicked, ass? Yes. Workers through this. I promise you that because that's the one thing that we know is going to happen in some of these places. We'll be telling you those stories because of those of the stories that deserve to get told as much as all of these hard things that were saying are and talking about you know we still have tons Akon friends we have tons of conversations to have about you know race and diversity inequity in this country I in in this continent. you know those aren't going away. And you know we made promises to talk more about those things and you know those conversations are are coming in are still happening You know. So just because we're talking about the corona virus this week doesn't mean we're not still making plans to keep those conversations happening to but we will make a point also to tell you about the teachers that are overcoming. Yes. these incredible hurdles and obstacles just you know put in you know crazy situations just so they can teach kids Because I think you deserve that for sure story as well. So let's Let's I'm not GonNa say let's stay positive. Let's stay real. It's just keep having those conversations There are a ton of articles they're all relatively about the same thing about how scary it is to to to you know everything that's happening stories from all over the place.

"Hey listen who doesn't love to make a buck and who doesn't love to have fun I winter. I got a Lotta air air air miles of because of that single that hit and I learned a lot about the business about myself. What it's like under pressure when you're chasing a record up the charts and anytime that I've been successful In terms of a hit record I've looked around and it has always been a team around the earn. I've always had the smartest people in my career around me. When I've had the biggest success in terms of my recording so that that was no different I had a great manager great producers and really fantastic support You know that's not the kind of thing that happens on your own. You really need a team to make that happen but you went back to jazz. Oh yeah man. I took that money. You Know I. I called up my buddy. He was like you know these rock'n'roll songs that were doing they're better at the channel. I said I know jazz artists. I said the record so I threw the money at my own record and I brought that home to Canada and Molly Johnson heard instead. Okay coming on tour with me Nice. That was one of those lovely moments and and and so. We'll we'll see more photos of you like I got to go back to Ellie. Shave your head tight leather. Well you know I'm expressing my rock and roll side a little differently these days. Actually go ahead. No no no sorry. Finish that honest swagger and what I do is in Crawley smell from the conversation. I'm I am I'M A. I'm a big personnel. I look I'm the lead singer you know. You know what the drummer is going to be. Like you know what the Bass player's going to be like. I'm a lead singer. I walk in the room. I I WANNA be friends with everybody. I want you all to notice me. But I'm I also WanNa give you something that's the thing. I'm interested in communication right. So there's a lot of rock and roll swagger and what I do today and that's very much in In the music that I make now there's a kind of a lot. It's all about making sure that the music fits my personality in that. That's how I think that's how you come up with the winning combination In a career that successful you have to really know who you are so so I I got a question for you and now we're GonNa sort of going in a different direction. But you've mentioned this person a couple of times talking about the swagger. Are you talking about the attitudes talk about sort of the Chameleon? What did you think of? Bowie's block star. Oh my God. What a record okay. Well first of all right so first of all we did not listen to it without the context of understanding that it was his lungs right now so we can't really difficult for me to say you know but didn't wasn't it wasn't it. I thought I thought it was a day or two before. No it was. It was the time I got here. I gotcha yeah right. Yeah and the NFC FOR MOST PEOPLE BECAUSE MOSAIC FM RIGHT. But but but by five. Doesn't it tell you that as an artist? He wanted to be remembered. Not only as men who gave you a wonderful song but the man of kept pushing the boundaries searching for ways to make music all that all those jazz artists working with like cool it. A million years with a predicted that end at the record would be so good. I mean that is the guy who did take care of his reputation in the sense that wait to the end right to the end. And I'll get you gotta love it. I find that inspirational Irene up. It's just enough that you go about knowing. He's a legend but also just enough creativity as an artist to dig in and make sure that his legend is his artistry. Yeah Yeah it was a did to me as a huge fans saw bowie. Numerous times to me. It was a gift it was a gift it was just it was as if to to meet us to everybody that he he has pointed the way before so many of us and Yeah I I'm an accolade. That's for sure How did you get into into coaching career site and vocal coaching the well? You'RE GONNA laugh. I was just trying to make the rent when I was a kid. Really Okay you know I mean you know there I was. I was basically you know. Live on Spina near the market in Chinatown and I was acting in plays making music for plays and like actors that needed to sing. My songs would come by the apartment and I would teach them maybe teach them a good warm up or something you know. I mean I work with coaches you know but I was twenty twenty one when I was in these shows right so you're twenty two years old and like I'm not really going to try to be a coach but the actress started getting Landa musical or slander musical role in a film and I'd be like Oh. Jeez I seem to have a map for this like okay look I. I need the rent for next month. Let me just you know. Let me just start paint asking people to pay me? It wasn't really. It was never a career choice. It's just a Collie I love other artists. Like you know you walk in. Maybe because my parents were ernest. I've had the opportunity to see where they were confident. And where they were in need of support and You know being a little kid watching them in their careers. I think I had an insider's view of how artists grow and what we need in terms of support in terms of what we need to function. Well so I think. That's probably in a nate thing for me when I'm seeing somebody as a voice as the voice client. We're really talking about the health of their career. The health of their spiritual emotional and physical self. Because what you have to give your audience it's not just your voice you know and So I think kind of holistically that way. And that's a. That's a really different thing than being a technique teacher around the block. You know it's a little bit bigger deeper. And so that's why I end up mentoring. People who go on to have according deals and careers in the industry about the you know it. It is something that I love so much. If you gave me trillions of dollars I would still be coaching. I love it and I. I'm happy every day that I can see that. My calendar is full with people that I get to work with. That's nice. I'm very blessed in some of the videos that that I've watched You you seem to really enjoy playing to the camera and and it sort of makes sense. You talked earlier about wanting Have Thoughts of being a dancer? An actor is that. Do you ever think that you know there's been a lot of you know. Bowie did did did a few movies. There's there's there's a lot of the you know these these front men. The you know that love the camera. Yeah Yeah I'm curious about you in your relationship with the camera and your relationship with maybe wanting to be on the small screen big screen in the future. It's interesting that you know. Look I I am happy to entertain it and I absolutely did my time acting. Tv Little Film. Lots of theater and I love it. I'm most comfortable being myself I've spent an awful lot of time being Nico Barnes and finding what what makes Nico Barnes Tick? So that I can develop the music and the stagecraft and the delivery and So I have a lot more confidence in in in being lines than I would You know sort of taking on an acting role however I will say never say never. It's one those things That if the universe sends it my way I would die in head first because our learn grow and bring all that back to the music and it'd be good for me so it's lovely of you to think of it. I do have a relationship with the camera. I know. That's the tool that gets me to my audience. And so you know. Never say never. That's what I'd say. Never say never. Yeah what would you be doing so you know you talked about if somebody gave you a trillion dollars huge? Still be coaching. What we would you be doing if you know if your parents if the family was not in entertainment right what would meek a barnes be doing. Would you be an accountant? Live my dreams a well. I know I'd be doing music in some way shape or form. Yeah I made of that You probably be doing no. I probably have because the money will help support it. I would probably be doing larger productions as tour. You know like I. I love the idea of touring larger shows with sets lights and costumes and stuff. That's fun to me and you know I've done a little bit of that in my career and I've really enjoyed it and of course the nylons essentially trained before that sure You know it's like So like occasionally I. I've I've put like in the water of developing show and You know musicals and I'll say that yeah right musicals and musical theatrical musical evenings concerts that are also like you know like a theatrical experience takes a lot of finance to get that kind of thing off the ground so I would probably be losing money by spending money on that right and then I go home to Hawaii and there you go is is you spent time in. La You've heard all over the world. Why WHY IS TORONTO? Your Home Oscar so okay so when I came back to Canada from Los Angeles I came back with two things on my mind one is. I'm a grown up now and I WANNA live of grown up life Los Angeles is fantastic. But it's a very adolescent culture there. It's all about the new idea who's got the exciting new thing in town and You know after you've done a couple of seasons twelve twelve years. I have had a sense of what was there for me but what I did not know is what it would be like to come back to go to Toronto Canada and be the big fish in a small path. Honda game and it was great. Molly Johnson put me onto her right away and the and the team members that I have now are the very top of the industry. And it's it. I'm not saying that I didn't have fantastic to work with in Los Angeles but the people who have the top of the industry there. Are you know the superstars? You know a little bit. It's rarified air her you know and this is different this this allows me to have a much richer experience of life and of course I get to tour Canada as a Canadian artist. Make my records here and then bring them back to the world. So it's the perfect place to jump off out of as well of the Canadian culture in terms of supporting our own music is very very strong. Jazz culture here is awesome and because I can pop to New York or La and you know. We have released plans for Europe and the next with the next album..

"At that time so I started stretch voice up into more of a rock and roll sound. And certainly you know of nylons and introduced me to that because a lot of what did was early rock and roll from the fifties and sixties and all that stuff so so. I had a rock band and I made a I made sort of a techno rock record and it was shockingly well received in America. I started touring behind it and there was a Canadian. And an American who had a very successful Remix production team that went from zero to hero overnight like they they they were. Dj's working in relative obscurity until they made a top radio hit for Whitney Houston on one of the songs also offer offer her out and suddenly they were remixing everybody Christina Aguilera Madonna. They heard what I was doing in my rock and roll phase and they said they said Oh my God we love the persona which would hard ass. They love the vocal. Which was you know kick ass and they said okay. We got a song for you to come on into the studio. Let's try it and like it was a Banger was one of those tunes that was late night. Underground all the DJ's fell in love with it including the ones that the U K and visa and around the world and so suddenly I had an opportunity. There was not you know. You don't know what's in the cards when you start this. This is this right now but if you look at the careers of people who have had longevity Elton John Share Bette Midler. People Bowie the people who who had the long term careers. We were ready for a shift in the tied their artists that are able to go with the times and move from style to style without losing the unique artistry that they bring to the table. And you know Frank. Sinatra's agreed sample that you look at his career he was always looking at. What's contemporary here? How does the Frank Sonata or say of Barbara Streisand work in a contemporary context? And that's how I see what I've done in my career so for me to have a dance record. Seems a little odd but it was really odd putting on the leather pants. I will tell you that and I'm like Oh these kids are freaking out there. All one trucks..

"The your Phil Singer songwriter folk scene was the remnants of that was still happening here in Toronto. When I was a kid I grew up downtown In the addicts. So I went to the I went to a place called the fingerboard and I just did a set there and it was like an open. Mike sign up situation they gave me like a beecher sat almost right away so by fourteen. I was already performing and I was terrified. I was so anxious I was so racked with stagefright. My hands were shaking. Oh my God i WanNa throw up but something made it really deeply compelling today. I had done acting class where I had been performed a public. I'd done a little bit TV acting. I've done some dance recitals and stuff with my you just from classes. He stuff and I love perform it. You know I love performing but by the time music here. There's a teenager when I learned assault. The first thing I wanted to do was performing and yeah it was all mostly school stuff to start with and then I moved into the the cafes the coffee houses and actually the jazz clubs of trial at a ridiculously young age. I mean you've ever stupid I was. I was already how to adjust trio under my own name by age eighteen ego. So yeah wow so. How old were you when he joined the NYLONS? I was in my twenties and the guys were all older than me. They were all ten years older than me. So it was weird. They were like they were grownups. They come up through the musical theater world and I was sort of still a fresh faced kid off Queen Street to be honest. A lots of learn. I will tell you that so you go from like it's it's very different right. You're doing jazz stuff and I know jazz. There's the standard that you might sing. at a showing. But then you might have your own stuff as well. How was how was it? Like going to performing with the nylons that predominantly very popular a predominantly Like a cover band almost SAM. I'm glad you brought that up The fact that the guys saying other people's songs was initially a real challenge for me and I wasn't sure how I was going to negotiate that. Yeah you know. I was being offered keeping my. I'm a baritone. They needed I'm a front man. They needed a front man. I'm a songwriter. They need songwriter. I was looking for a record deal. They had a record deal I wanted. I wanted to go around the world and do concerts. They were already doing that and they were willing to pay me to join them. Seeing someone else's songs big right over there is that but then they put together ranger like if you listen to say on the truth you know lying since tonight or kiss and by or a off the ladder to the roof like all the chestnuts from their repertoire from the nylons repertoire are so deeply rework. The arrangements are acapella. Start with but also the tempos the way that the nylon arrangements paid attention to the lyric Mount Mount Boulevard and harmonic a content in the songwriting. It took that Brill building rock and roll and pop and R&B and basically elevated. I mean there's moments in the NYLONS. Tarn that are stunning. My favorite was to sing learn euros allies coming which had been hit for a whole bunch of people. But you know singing. That was like can oker sewage like a symphony and a vocal symphony at that. So you know there was a lot to learn. I had to learn how to sing harmony which I've never really done. I had to learn how to saints. Tell jokes in on a concert. Stage as myself in the context of this theater the presentation and then also remember the choreography. You know like you know like I wasn't a dancer dancer so there was an awful lot The learning curve was incredibly steep. Guys it was like going to university university course and how to actually be a Popstar was perfect. That's awesome you talk about you. Talk about You know being funny on stage and talking I mean it was natural to you and the reason I ask that is for me in had nowhere near the career. You've had by any stretch. But I know you know we're on stage. And you know an aunt blows up or whatever else you gotTa Shuck Jive it right and things that we worked a lot on jeff myself would work on is Improv. Because it really helps in those situations where you like. Oh Shit Okay. You can't just stop. I mean some bands. Do that's fine if that's what they do but we always wanted to be that. So how did it come naturally to you or did you work at your interesting? There's there's a real correlation between musicians and comedians especially jazz musicians media because we're we're Kinda we're tapping into something like you don't really know what's coming you never. You can't really be prepared for half of it certainly as a jazz musician. Your job is to create in the moment very similar to comedian. Who might have a little bit of an idea of where his sets going? But he's got to react to the crowd to the newspaper of the day. And you know I have to say I do come by the gift of Gab. Suli naturally as you may be noticing You know but but but to be oneself and to find out whether that's okay in the world. I had already done that. I'd started as a very young kids. I didn't think I could sing so I was telling jokes the funny and being like a character being a personality you know that was very much my artist brand if you will From Day One because I was. I was like a camera guy. You know you come in you get entertained. Here's some songs until you know. Make Make Fun of Shit. I mean my whole thing was like I was very influenced by the Comedians of the day and I continue to believe that the moment that we meet an audience is always a rebirth. Where you get to make it up as you're going along it's one of the most beautiful things we ever get to do on the planet. I feel very blessed to get to do it. Is there a? Is there whether it's a gay comedian Or a band or singer that you really admire in terms of how they perform. And how they control the audience and stage a REC- nick cave. That guy is a master if you even if you don't like rock and roll back guy. Bought his finger on the pulse He's like a southern preacher. Man You know it brings it down to the ballot. Takes a back up to the mountain top? He's like a preacher in it's fantastic You know look I tell people see your heroes because you never go rate and so I'm a guy of a certain age. How lucky I am I. I've gotten to see David Bowie. Aretha Franklin Barbra streisand. And I made it a point to see everybody that could when I was a kid. So I've seen prints I've seen you know that's right so so when you're asking me who is inspired me. Well it's going to be the great. What I wish is that I could've seen Billie holiday in concert You know. I'm lucky that I did see ella. And and you know Sarah and Joe Williams like I'm I'm right on the cost of their where when I was a kid on. Tv still had. The old timers still added. Louis Armstrong is still. Had you know like a Pearl Bailey and you know the entertainers from the old days? So I kind of came up watching added. And that's my idea of what I do is like you entertain the crowd. I may be a jazz artists but I entertain the crowd and that is job number one because they're not listening to us so much as their meeting you as a person and as you can learn that young and I still. That's why the Vegas breeze record makes so much sense. It's like you know. Where's the where's the last bastion of where personality trumps all? Well Shark Right Classic Vegas Entertainers and that's the thing. So yeah I I kinda. I can't say there's one but You know this when I was a kid lenny. Bruce inspired that Hallen. Yeah you know as like okay. It's it's He's saying he's saying she can't say he's talking about stuff you can't talk about and he's so he's pointing fingers at society any still funny as hell. I was like that is dangerous and I love Any of the new. I don't know if you follow. Yo Sort of the music the quote unquote kids are listening to these days. Yohe is who who who catches your ear. Who Catches your eye these days? You know we've got we've got we've got a wonderful new crop of independently minded independents independently spirited artists because of the rise of the Internet as the great decider. Right select when you have right so something as officials the grammy's bestowing it's Crown on the likes of Billy Irish and Liz. Oh and our little gnat as ex. You're talking about the outsiders have now got their hand on the brass ring. You know the girl the big girls gay boys and the crazy freaks have got the party rock. And and you know what I mean so lady Gaga. I think has pointed the way for a Lotta people and continues to be a beacon. She sort of An identity that you can hang a lot of people can hang their their their hopes and dreams and aspirations on always giving you a great show and the music awesome. You know when it comes to the world of Jazz You know I'm deeply inspired by my you know curdling. And he's just one of my favorites and Gregory Porter internationally and and certainly when you're when you're thinking about the way that The way that pop music works right now and how How anybody can become a star overnight. One of my favorite things. Is that a young young gentleman that I've been mentoring through my coaching career. These last ten years is cracking the billboard one hundred with a beautiful duet that he made his name J. P. Sacks and he's a songwriter of of giant proportions and His career is at this moment. In time is looking unstoppable as is talent and Gp Sachs's somebody who Canadians are going to feel really proud about moving forward. I think that is awesome. I came across a song that they send you rotate or you perform it thunder with thunder puss. Is that correct? Welcome to my head. Yeah Okay So. This is like this techno Dan. I like how would you describe this to you guys? It's like underground house. How dancer was an we went to number one on the billboard chart and it was an indie record. We didn't even have a label. Can you believe that was awesome? How does how does a Jazz Guy Brian? The jazz guy get into this up. I'm really curious fascinated about this okay. I'll tell you how happy so I you know how in Jazz you've gotta saying you don't look if you're GONNA sing jazz. You have to have some range to your voice usually right so like I have triggering my voice of work with fantastic coaches any. No I got to a point. Where by the time I left the nylons and arrived in Los Angeles. You know I could say I could sing. I could sing from the bottom to the top. What you got. I can do it so I was so tired of Pop. You know. I've been jazz guy all my life and then the nylons gave me this pop reputation and I was trying to find my way and I was like as a songwriter. I was really excited by the new voices in rock and roll and an pop music. The grunge writers Alanis Morissette Hurt Cockbain. And you know nine inch nails and I was really into like what was happening in Contemporary Contemporary Music..

All right your I am sorry you you caught us off guard when you said playboy so we're Where did you not read my bio? Yeah I think your your publicist forgot to put that party. Pay Just a little bit more. Just Mika thank you again for joining us. Really appreciate it I'm going to use the word that has been used a thousand times. I think a drinking game. We'll get started once. This is all over and we're all Hanging out in bars and clubs again but We are living in unprecedented times you know you you're obviously a You send it off in the intro. Former member of the NYLONS Jazz singer. I know that you are also coaching. Vocal coaches well With all of this in mind how obviously Cove nineteen must have impacted you in a number of ways. I'm wondering if you can sort of talk to us about the some of these Disruptions to your life well I will tell you I was about to draw a full length record. We were in release mode and the momentum was building we were onto. We've done two singles which had been beautifully received in the momentum. Online with videos was global as opposed to national and And hit so. We ended up having to move the CD launch concerts the fall and the third single and video. We had just cut the video for the third single and we were literally like I had to take it down from all the digital distribution. I mean like it was. It's hard to describe how giant our momentum woolas and then suddenly to screech to a you know it is nothing in comparison with people who are working on the front lines losing their lives to this pandemic globally. Whether you release your record now in the fall is literally the least important thing on earth but it meant that. I had a whole spring tour set up with soft seat theaters across Ontario. That you know we had to fold up and go home. And I know I'm I'm I'm pretty chill but there was about a week ner where I was trying to reorganize everything and you know I'm self managed so I had about sinks people that I was in constant communication with on my team. Managing the team managing. How are we going to do this? What are we GONNA do? How do we deal and So I was in a bit of an emergency for a while and then so the last two weeks where here in Toronto we'd been unofficial lockdown is been fantastic. I mean I'm busy as hell but I'm quite at home. I had stillness in my heart. I have no love for everybody. Who's like there? Are PEOPLE OUT THERE? Who Lost everything and are really wondering if they can pay the rents and I am not in that situation because my clients continue to book. In fact they're double booking with me twice a week instead of once. 'cause they're home with nothing to do. This is your vocal coach business. Yeah I also career strategy to right so I've got clients in La and New York and across Canada. And what happens is they've been. Outta towners have been doing the online with me from time immemorial now. It's just happened to be a guy who was also unclean streets going online with the you know for good. I mean honestly is heart-wrenching when you see the incredible amount of people whose lives are not only distrupt disrupt it but ended because of this virus but In terms of my little bubble of the world. I'm going to pick up a book and read it. Goddamn book for once in my life. You talked about stillness in your heart. I'm wondering if you can sort of Elaborate on that. And what would that manifests itself as well as interesting I was I was in full. Full managed the situation mode both in release while we were gearing for the release clever European team both North American team on that which means constant communication and coordination and management Of people and expectations. And and then and then when you when whenever they fell apart I wish sort of in an emergency mode myself trying to figure out How how what we were GonNa do to re-lane everything for the fall however all of that all of that. All that is dependent on Mika Barnes as an artist as a person having a sense of PD's at the center of the storm. If I don't then everybody on my team they all feel it. The audience feels it. You know my socials reflect like if I don't have stillness in my heart and like I e confidence that I'm in the right place at the right time doing exactly what the universe has intended this week. Our Guide to do on the planet. If I'm good with all that I can be peaceful in the midst of a hurricane I can be still in the in the midst of a pandemic one one of the things that I noticed on. I think you shared the other day. your trainer moving his right. Adrian a from a mental health and physical health perspective. It's really interesting to see how these times of change US or how we've changed with the times and how quickly we james like for example my wife and all her friends get together because one of their friends is a yoga instructor and they get the every day at noon. They jump on Google hangouts. So Meek it's interesting You know when I had my cousin in town I think it was about two weeks ago. Can Losing Track of time with the days here but You know she was asking. You know what's going to be on the other side of this and I thought you know we're GonNa see a lot of really creative stopped. We're going to see artists getting creative and not just artists fans you know doing mashups and getting really creative around their favorite artists and and I think we're seeing that with some of the you know impromptu concerts and even some of the people you know doing meam like or mixing up music and it's just it's very interesting. I don't know if any thoughts and not you seen. Yeah well of course we. We've taken the the music performance out of the amphitheater and the local club and we put it in the living room. So it's it's it's living room the living room which is which is a much more human scale and I. I have to say like you know the music that I make jazz Even when I was with the NYLONS and doing bigger theaters around the world. It has been. It's been beautiful to see how direct and in intimate the music communication has the calm. Now that we're live streaming from the living room as opposed to you know all the other ways that we've delivered music. I love it You know the intimacy that we're getting with our big star right now is unparalleled and You know people a lot of talk about like needing to dig in and spread love during this time and I am seeing an awful lot of positive results of people having to be locked down and digging for themselves and their loved ones. There's a lot more caring and sharing online that you know this is where we're coming out of an extremely divided period politically in. North America and Suddenly the world a smaller. Suddenly everybody's your brother your sister And I'm I'm always happy to see that the feel that after all you know. Why do I make music? It's about communication and You know it doesn't matter to me whether I'm in a big hall or coming through to your living room it's all good. I'm back gentlemen high. We barely moved. We kept talking. I don't know if it we'll figure it out and post. Yeah Yeah we'll figure that out Appreciate your patients Really really appreciate you sharing your thoughts meek on on sort of you know how you're dealing with this and your thoughts Around the the current pandemic Out as I was researching you one of the first things. I'm always curious about is how someone get started in this business this then. It almost seems you were born to be in entertainment. Your Dad was a drummer composer. Both of your brothers were your mom wrote from Mr Dress it up. It would have been strange if you were not in the entertainment industry. The shock would have been. Hey Mom. I've decided that mom dad sit down. I have something big tell you. I'm going to be an investment banker. Now we were. We were very blessed. Cvc Brad I grew up in the studio watching my mom handle all these stupid executives who were trying to push her around on Mr dress-up show I watch down my father as as a serious composer dealing with the you know the classical world and you know my brothers and I all went into the business. One of the things that we believed we. Could you know we? We never thought that you couldn't make a living in the music industry and Boy were we wrong joking but you know it's true you can. Actually you can see the kids that have the leg up and it means that while I was still in in high school I was already performing under my own name and making a name for myself and business when I was still really a kid. And that's thanks very much to the family I grew up in. My grandmother was a concert candidates in Europe. So we really didn't have any. There's no way we were going to do anything else were you. Did you feel pushed into? It isn't something you wanted to pursue. What did your parents think of this? I was interested in becoming a dancer or an actor when I was on a training and continued to train as an actor through my teams into my twenties I did a bunch of theater productions But you know when I about twelve thirteen. The music grabbed me and didn't let go. I mean really grab me like I mean I. I was in a rock and roll band with my friends in the garage. Heard a Billie holiday record. My mom gave my stepfather and I I. It was such a profound experience. I wait in an I quit the band and only quit the band. I told them I'm crew hitting rock and roll and I'm going home to become a jazz and blues artist could buy. Wow so it took. It took my decisions very seriously CONC- and it won't be the last time you changed music genre. 'cause I know we'll we'll get to it later but I know you moved to l a you sort of took a left turn or right turn. I don't know how to explain it but Do you remember the first time you went on stage and performed publicly? Was Lincoln the school thing or was that in a jazz club. Watch so young man. I mean okay. I was thirteen. I went and played..

The spent twenty four days in the back country will the learn a shoe or says and it is the most intense some of the guys that have come through this program. You know even special ops guys is say that some of the hardest things I've ever done their entire life and a lot of guys as the hardest thing they've ever done because the hardest thing you'll ever do is learn about yourself in. It's actually the challenges in life at teaches about who we are in. I live that process and I really didn't know at the time when I was looking at Because of the end of the day I was I was. I was afraid you know. I don't run around playing Joe Military. I'm not like wearing camouflage pants and telling everybody like governments like Iran's cracking off brother there you're gonNA need made that I'm like okay dude. You can't even like walk upstairs without getting out of breath yet. Nobody wants you back. But we create this like pseudo-world connecting the dots backwards in our life because we have this historical data to support what we've done so we try to bring that forward with us in trying to create. This is new life when the best way to create a future is to create the future in your creating future out of the past. And that's what that's what guys become. Disenfranchised has in so it was. It was through this process working with horses that I learned about who I was and I and I realized that I didn't set out might start some nonprofit profit. I'm not like that was like my goal in life. I you know I. I did it because I was really saving myself in. I realized how powerful a medium the horses are. They teach you about yourself. So wild horses Most people may not know there's about sixty thousand in captivity liberty and maybe a hundred twenty five thousand roaming free and wild horses which is kind of debatable. But they're actually brought here by the Spanish then they bred with British forces in formed a breed. And they're not really indigenous to hear. There is on the fossil record horses that were like two feet tall and they had eight hubs and that's what they found here so people are like. Oh there was worse as your. But what's happened is all these horses which are really feral. Horses are destroying the range land so two percent of the nation which seventy five percents in the West produces food for the other ninety eight eight percent. Horses are destroying land. They eat they eat the grass down. It's created dust Massive dust bowls in Nevada. Utah Montana so these horses are never been handled by people like Bob Cats. They they kill each other out there. They're not the graceful creatures that we see the black beauty or spirit or whatever like these sources says will eat your lunch. Okay today got up. They got black belts in Horse Jujitsu. Okay so it's a perfect match. Take a wild veteran. Take a wild horse in match those two together because they're both missing the key thing that every human being needs in life and that's purpose and it's automatically purpose that allows us to overcome our external circumstances but to find that you got to overcome fear labels violence all these things that we've adapted and so that's how I you know started using wild horses because the horses and honest creature horses not a smart creature ours is a dumb creature horses the only animal that will run himself into a V of tree and hang himself when he has to do is lift his head up. Get out the horses the kind of animal you take them out and the gates open. He runs up down yelling for his buddy in the gates. Open next to him on the left. horses Horses the only one that will fight jump over the fence and hurt himself to get over the fence to see his buddy and then fight with his buddy and his leg ended up dying all right so but instinctually thanks Charlie. A horse highly intelligent highly involved so they sense everything you're thinking and feeling and that's why they work with people is because a horse is designed to stay away from you in me because our eyes are on the front of our heads all predators is in front of their heads in horses is on the size of their heads. You know so they see mine. OCULAR binocular vision. They see independently so whatever horses is on the left side. He has no idea. So you'd be watching frozen on the left side in on the right side. And he's watching red heat with Arnold Schwarzenegger and the brain has no idea that that one side's watching the movie watch the movie no idea so they to get to the point where you can get on their back and ride them and had his connection with them. You have have to build trust and that trust only comes through the experience of pressure in release And developing relationship through the horse. Human Connection. We call it so in the nut Shell Horses are I would say that. I wouldn't be well. I don't really know I wouldn't be where I am today. If it wasn't for them in my life and heavily it a lot of humble pie along the way and I had to really climb my own mountains and face my own failures my own fears and my own insecurities and you know we're doing that. I become a better person and continue on the journey for the rest of my life. Yeah that's awesome again. It's great to see. I know. Unfortunately there's such a alarming alarming numbers that we see with the suicide rates with veterans. And so it's awesome that there's so many different programs out there by veterans four veterans now which is what you're doing so it's so cool and Just the rain this back into use of father and the last thing. I'm GonNa hit you with here. I love to ask all the data get on the podcast. What type of advice do you have to that new father or for that about to be dad? Add who's out there listening. Well first of all I guess. I'll use the Kenny Chesney song. I don't blink. I don't blink. I last night at the dinner table as a matter of fact I look at my youngest daughter Nora in I delivered her at my house the by myself with my wife. Wow I delivered her at home and you know we had gone through it in a special ops medic. So whatever figure I could get in there and We we wanted to do something together. One had this experience. I always tell people that I was delivered. The baby cord around the neck popped it off off and then we made Raviolis and and that's what we did and it was amazing in the baby. Never even got a bath for the first couple of days and it was it. It was one of the greatest experiences of my life and I remember I remember crying like holding her and and being the one to see her and hold her when she was born in being able to deliver in doing it in my own house in my living in my bedroom and the kids were downstairs watching a movie with my oldest and You know here we are having this baby and then you think those babies are never gonNA end. You're like like it's just it's just it's just a lot and and then all of a sudden I'm sitting there. She'll be coming five in the summer in Alexander. I miss those days and I thought they would never end. So Oh don't be afraid to make a mistake. Children are super forgiving. There is no perfect. There really is no perfect there is you taking. I always tell people you're winning if you can do just a little bit better than what you were taught you're on the winning track so And don't don't be afraid to fail. Don't be afraid to make mistakes. Don't beat yourself up in. We're all scared we're GONNA screw Kids up in our reading oprah stuff around like the cans like when I really and you will you will and your kids will sit around. And they'll have a beer again. My Dad used to do this to me all the time. But I'm GONNA do this. And then the next generation that well my dad used to do this in just enjoy every single moment. Put Your family first because it does go by so quick. I mean I just turned forty this year and I think wow my life is half over in the first quarter of my life. I was pooping my own pants and peeing in my pants. And I don't even remember so I mean like take advantage of the time that you have with these little ones and and don't beat yourself up it's it's the greatest journey and in the end. You'll thank yourself for doing it. Yeah very well satellite the message. This has been an honor for me. Say Mike Thank you our first class father all the way.

"And and you know what else we see. A lot of my father had me when he was fifty years old so he was born in nineteen thirty so the his disciplined style is much different than mine was and I wasn't eating but I mean I was smacked around as a kid and it's like as a dad myself. I find myself looking at like man I I I can't I can't find myself doing it now. I'll spank my kids up until under a certain age and then I feel like once you communicate with them. it's not necessary so What what type of disciplinarian? Who is the bigger disciplinarian in your family? I would say my wife and I definitely do it in a partnership. But I'm I would. I would one hundred per se. I'm the authoritarian in the family. But but I always use the example that a leader doesn't demand respect. I don't demand respect for my kids. I commanded by WHO I am in the example. I sat now. They know You know let's aspect my kids one hundred percent but that's not my first go to right. There's always a level of severity so when I'm breaking a horse for instance on Sunday this Sunday all four o'clock in the morning drive out with guys fifteen hours gather up wild horses never been touch judge. Bring him back. We're gonNA break and then we'll use them in my program in June in by by using pressure and release. Ace you help that animal. Just like people formulate their own ideas about what is right so that they believe in last when you go away and so I always have a level full of severity so as firm as necessary. So for instance. If I tell you to do something you know it's one time so I'm only gonNA say at one time. Go got side bring the wooden stack up by the woodstove. Okay my son drifts off. He's outside like beat the cat with a sticker. Whatever he's doing I come in? It's not John. There's no negotiation. He's got he drops down. He gets in the push-up position. And he stays there. So you know when I say stays. They're they're they're getting so strong. The kids that which means they make mistakes. They can stay in that position for fifteen minutes without and that's how strong are getting and so it but they'll drop down they'll stay that position talking perfect plank position. They'll stay there in and then they get up. They go about their business. Well now they know no. It's just one time because I don't I don't yeah I don't scream I just I'm very. I'm just purchase necessary. You don't do this. You get this in you punch your brother. I'm brother punches year. Whatever well okay then? There's the next level of severity one thing that we do in our house and I've got unconventional methods is. We have a big hill outside in my house. Even if a pile of rocks in if we're having a issue and it warrants it then you have to carry one rock in place on top of the hill come back down in when they come back down from the hill. It's a big. It's a small mountain. They come back down and they're very tired and then then it's over. That's that's IT and they learned the lesson. We always discuss the lesson in what we can learn so there always has to be a recourse. There always has to be a cause and effect. What happens is a lot of times? You'll say knock it off. I said quit it. This is the last time if you do that again. I'm warning you watch and it's just like these courses right so I may say look you're GonNa kick at me Eh. You may try. They may strike me right and okay. There's going to be but if I if I back up and I don't actually respond to that then the next time comes around round pen. He's GonNa say okay. I'm GONNA push a little further in the children of the same exact way like I've just learned so much about being a father from working worth especially with wild horses. It's really the same principles. And the old way was forced. Fear repetition you force them. They didn't didn't WanNa do it. It was repetition. You know my dad. Was You know very firm very tough. Upbringing You know grandfather was a real tough guy and You know I've been in prison. So he only had that example in back in the day it was the beaten released program. You know you basically the neighbors would. Who'd you you you'd be over there doing something that was that was just how it was where I grew up? The neighbors is he grabbed me by the ear whack. You can't just normal and but now but I was never I always operated at a fear. I was afraid of being in trouble but I feel that the way that I teach my kids is this kind of cause and effect in fact we always discuss the outcome but they have to pay the man they gotta pay the man no thing we do. Is We hold log overhead so the pieces of wood. Uh and they'll stand there and if they don't meet the time which they always do but if they don't meet the time then there's the by product you know. We have the saying that we take sweets away way. We do all these things and we always discuss it in people may say like Ma'am. I can't believe your kids like walking up down that hill and rock in. I said well. It's a lot better than teaching them now than when they're sixteen. And you can take a swing at me right Because he never learned that respect every time he took a swat on me. I backed off and I didn't a follow up on the things I said because you have to train them you have to train them but you can't force them and you gotTa oh let their decisions. Even if they're going to be wrong I let them make a wrong decision. I will purposely allow them to to run into that limit and make AAC decision. And if it's wrong it's a good lesson but there's always gotta be a by product and it's only as firm as fair as necessary and that's kind of our approach. You know my wife you know. We support each other You know we have different kind of method. We all use the push method which is very successful types of dinner. It'll be two kids down because if you if you interrupt somebody you have to do five push-ups and then one for the navy. No matter what I don't care where we are we'll be out to eat at a Restaurant the kids starts chiming in talking over. Everybody was looking. I just look at it. Drop bombs like mechanism because it doesn't no matter where you are. The training never ends. The training is always continual. And I'll tell you what not that I have it all figured out that works. It just works. It works on horses and it works on kids and number one. They're getting held shape. My kids are strong because because they make a lot of mistakes but you get carry rock up and down a hill three or four times a day and then you put knocking out push ups. Maybe you get thirty or forty in the day. You're six my kickin hold on his Derby. He's crushing people in wrestling. And you know it's like they understand like they understand that if I do this I get this and and it just works so maybe you know people are going to have all the all the crazies are going to be talking about. What Oprah said? Screw my kids opera. This and that but I don't really care. It's it's it's the way that I've learned and it's it's the lessons that I've learned that I'm able to take and reshape and applied to who I am today and help my kids be better version of themselves so I can only imagine Mike that it would be just a benefit to them all right. It'll be cool when they're older to hear them stories about growing up about what they had to do. So that'd be pretty cool. I I love the analogies that you had with the wild horses now part of my misspent youth growing up I grew up at meadowlands racetrack. Akwa Doc I was you know I was gambling on horses so getting married said a young age. What kind of got you into the horses? And what was the genesis horses in heroes. You know so for me like coming home from from a career you know a pretty intense special operations career was one of the hardest things I've ever done. I didn't really know how to be home. Tom And didn't know HOW TO BE A. You know a real dad I everybody was kind of my recruits. And you know I had to kind of put my life back together and so it ended up Meeting some cowboys with horses living out here in Montana and I started shoe in for them. You know started worshiping and terrible. Let's so you can make it a lot of money doing it but it's terrible and I always tell people when I'm sure I just got kicked up like you know what to learn this. Why did I learn? This should never learned this but yeah and and I started. You know this guy would buy these bad horses from we. Call it the cantor. So they're basically horses that are yeah no no good and people get rid of and sell it a loose sale and then they'll take him up. No go through this process wind up on. Somebody's dinner plate in Canada. Whatever in this guy would buy them and he'd bring him down the real good looking horses and they didn't just wind up there because they were great and we would break them and we would re Salomon? You'd make money on them and so I was always getting on these horses and I was getting bucked off all the time. Deborah I've been kicked. I've been stamped struck. Smashing the trees of runaway runaway got dragged by like So I really like wanted to just dominate these animals because at the time I was the type of person like if you wanted to fight with me like you like I would fight with you like I had a propensity for that. That was who I was like the more that I wanted to fight the more by would get up and want to you know dominate them in these old cowboys loved it. You know it was just one rack after the mass yes in some some mentors came along side me and we're like. Hey there's a better way in and I started started learning the fundamentals of horsemanship through the fundamentals of abortion ship. I started really learning about myself. I started realizing that I was the cause of all my problems. It wasn't war wasn't the teams it wasn't contracting that. I have really created the world that I was living in by by choices that were made out of fear. I was afraid to not be who I was anymore. So in some strange way I was holding onto that in when I began to change my perspective. The way that I handled horses sources began to change in it was the challenges in struggles that faced through the horses learning about myself that ultimately led me to creating. Here's an horses. I brought some friends out how in what was the team. Guy Was Special Forces Guy that I knew this guy had commanders house in six months he was very dark. Place like I've I've said before before and some of the things that I've done like I remember thinking like like I might have like. I don't know I might have to do something. Like he was out. There would sit in the ten on. Just pull his gun out. Aaron Mill. Nowhere you know twenty miles from the closest dirt road and he would just be like you know spin and we're just sitting around a campfire like with the horses out. You know he's just like they they're coming. You know my learning yeah and and but through that process like he changed it. Changes transformed his life completely. We did it again. I launched the program today. what it is is is a forty day long reintegration program for combats. It's forty days straight. There's no days off tofu eating dairy no cheese. There's no honey there's no melk there's no bread water black coffee meat vegetables average guy I lose eighteen pounds. They ride around five hundred miles in the.

"First class. Father Mica Fink welcome to First-class Fatherhood. Thanks so much for having me all right. Let's start right right here. How many kids do you have? And how old are they. I got four kids four six eight and thirteen years old. Wow all right awesome. What type type of sports activities of the older ones into so? My oldest daughter does lacrosse and swimming. Nora Pretty much just rips the heads off L. dollars and destroys the bathroom toothpaste My son Mike does motocross has got a couple of dirt bikes and started last year. Doing that and My daughter Eva is cowgirl so she does a barrel racing which for those east coast is a racing round three barrels. As fast as you can and then Wasting your father's dollars money on horses very cool. Did you ever get involved in coaching with the Lacrosse or the swim team or anything like that. Are you step away from that and enjoyed from side. Now I kind of enjoy from the side I guess for me. You know. It's like one thing that's really helped me develop in my in my fatherhood nece if I'm GonNa coin that word is is my time that I've spent working with horses and breaking horses and realizing like you know for me it's a lot better. Put them in a situation and then allow it to be their own free choice and you know US pressure in news other aspects of leadership to help them become the best version of himself without too much influence and and You know so. That's that's that's being firm is necessary and and supporting that were needed but but making sure that whatever they're doing is something that they're internally really motivated by in. It's not some kind of wish of my own that I'm trying to fulfill that meal I've done the Iron Man Navy Seal Accomplished swimmer. I love swimming but at the same time I'm going to be there when necessary but I'm not going to be overbearing when it comes. The horses You know I'm I'm there are definitely a little bit different different kinds of sport and they can be dangerous in so I'm there in a lot more aspects but I I'm there when I need to be but the individual meeting. My children has to show the desire to do it without me forcing them to because so many of my friends like I didn't really play any sports. I was a boxer and so I you know matter of fact. My Name is Clinton claim to fame as I was a sparring partner for the Former heavyweight champion the world ray Mercer And he hit me so hard that I decided I didn't want to go any further but yeah I just. I don't WanNa be that individual that forces so much because they get in this day and age told me to my friends. I see them driving their kids driving his dragging their kids. They lose the passion Russian and it becomes a job and replacing him into their first. Full time job. You know before they're even out of diapers so for me. I I support them where they wanna go but they gotta do the work you know. My kids got to wake up in the morning. They gotta feed their horses in the when it's thirty below zero in. Oh He's got to work on the dirt bike he's gotta clean it. He's gotTa Wash Guy Take Care they're gonna do everything himself and I'm not going to be over very but I'm always there to support. That's Kinda approach very well said Mike and you touched on a little bit there but if you could take how many you're just a hit my listeners. A little bit more about your background and what you do yeah so Originally from upstate New York from outside the area I grew up in Casco Mountains. It's a real small town kid Just outside place just outside of Castle New York was telephone linemen and I was You know at the World World Trade Centers on nine eleven. I was actually telephone pole working in Queens New York at the time and Yeah I mean I was there I I went into New York City. It was there all the towers fell and you not the World Trade Center Tower seven fell and it changed. My life ended up joining the military. I didn't come from a big military family. Run around playing soldier like like you know Harpoon in a burlap sacks Pella's cinema or anything and marching around But that moment changed my life I wanted. I wanted to have a life as service so I joined up ended up becoming a navy seal which I had no idea what even were which is kind of funny because I was trying to join the army and I got pulled out of line of all the people because nobody wants to join the navy because I mean come on and so this guy showed me a video? I joined up became a- a- seal graduated thirteen original guys out of my class and that led me to my special operations career where I was in a seal team's both active reserves. Did some deployments got out ended up going over as CIA contractor where I spent another five years Rounded out both those careers with thirty deployments and Amerifactors just exited the reserves On December twenty seventh. So Yeah It's been a really really long journey. It's been tough having a family with my wife for thirteen thirteen years now and It's it's it's been hard I there's no doubt about fatherhood hard military's hard Put those things together. and Ah you'd better buckle in incredible career. Mike thank you so much for your service and about how old were you then when you did become a dad and had it becoming a fall other kind of change your perspective on life. Well I think it's kind of interesting. A Lotta guys have is like watershed moment where they have kids in my memory of having Isabela who's just absolutely my heart and soul. I love this kid was like I left training I was going through eighteen Delta Special Operations Medical School I get recall that she's going in the Labor and So I had to leave class so I went over. I left class. You know. Everyone's in I'm in full fatigues. You know like I'm over there in the military hospital. Everyone's in there like you can get the students watch and I'm like yeah sure whatever you know. So we're there she gets born in and then I had to go back to class so I I kind of went back to class. You're not allowed to miss any days. it's extremely hard course and the implications of you you know. Failure are terrible dismal at that point in your career so Yeah I was really really hard thing for me n n once. I left that school I showed up at my the NBA working out for deployment. And that was a I never really would say that. In the beginning I learned how to be a father. I was gone around eight months out of the year. And so you know those first early years were live. I mean I see in pictures but I wasn't there matter of fact I remember. I bought her a dog. I was in Iraq doc in watching her. I'm like a real. Everyone's trying to watch their family. So the Internet's horrible over the area. We'd gotten more than before. So everyone's like tired because he had a run to the bunkers jonkers ordeal and so I'm watching her. Open up this dog that I got her Charlie who died but anyway not for beating the box but he charlie's in this thing and I remember sitting there in Iraq in in in watching thing. Move around this. Little girl is trying to open up this this box and look inside. And there's this little dog and then the Internet went down and You know for me when I left in two thousand fourteen eighteen when I You know finally hung up the guns per se Is when I really started being the type of father that always imagine that I would be And that was a really. That was a really hard journey for me. You know because you come home. You're so absorbed in your career. You come home your home for short periods of time. Your wife's doing everything and you roll in like marijuana towels folded that way. Excuse me like you know why. Why are they talking to the table? Label you know or whatever and so. That's that's kind of been my genesis and You know today the relationship I have with my children is I. I just couldn't imagine it the entity better. I've never been happier and I always tell people that the greatest thing that I've ever done in my life is how children I adjust people. Wait so long You know a matter of fact I just. I know a lot of people that I meet. You know they're in their late forties. They WanNa have kids because now they have the car. Now they have this things and now they're stable can apple and Children add more value to you than any dollar amount. You could ever have in your in your checking account In they really are a they're like wild mustangs get him. They haven't really been handled. They don't really know anything so anything you teach them easier. You're gonNA leave a good imprint. or Bed Brent. So you know it's it's your it's your game to play and you can take all your life lessons begin to apply to an individual that that AH loves you and wants to learn everything you have to teach them to me. I I would give everything I I wouldn't trade being a father for anything in the world. Nothing I'd give up everything everything I would just. It's just the most valuable thing to me. Yeah I'm right there with you and I. It seems Kinda crazy like the way our society puts the value more on other other things years ago we had much bigger families that lived in smaller houses and today we have people that live in bigger houses and smaller families. So we've kind of gotten the priorities skewed skewed somewhere along the line here and especially like I was standing a little bit before we started when I tell people I have four kids they look at me like a double take like I got four heads. Do you get that kind of reaction to the people that you tell them. Hey I got four kids you get that well out here in Montana I kind of like I got four laborers. I just you know we live on a gallon. Forty acre place out here and You know the kids The House is heated to giant woodstoves. You know it's got a horse stalls We got all kinds of animals and You know they are little laborers So they actually come in handy that they really do it. I think that's why people used to have so many kids because back when you know your plan cabbage during the Western expansion you know if you didn't have any laborers you know you have to start. You gotta start growing organically with Ma but I think that what happens is that people become They almost like sometimes especially when I travel back east. The people seem to kind of look down on that a little bit because they're so involved in their career in and this is the problem. Is that the idea that things bring you. Happiness is really the overarching modus operandi of humanity. Like the game is get as much as stuff as you can hand and then you know save up enough money so that you can die in comfort things is it's a it's a trap like people keep pursuing things and keep pursuing jobs and keep pursuing careers or they have kids and then they have the nanny raise the kids and they have nothing to do with the kid and then the kids like you know totally gone bonkers and they don't understand why they wish it never happened. When they've they've they've never given their time to that child because they're pursuing things things which I think in the end is going to bring them happiness but it's an it's an empty lifestyle? I with a house. We just recently bought The lady he died and it was filled with things stuff. Legs of the family left everything in there and so we got a big dumpster out there and a lot of stuff was like all these like weird knickknacks and I was was out there at a real low point because so sick and tired like cleaning stuff out of this house and I look at one of the things that has a price tag. It's thirty five bucks. I was like I throw in the dumpster. A box sixty they have these little plastic tags throwing out. I started thinking. I wonder if this lady made thirty bucks an hour so it is through one our.

You're still playing along but no one wants to be the head of it. I don't follow. Oh the Oscars say. Let me confirm announced together with the academy there will be no traditional host this year you think. JC would do it. Lilavati Burke said the net where he sounds funny. Burke said the network felt last year show worked well without an emcee Kevin Hart was tapped to host bowed. OUT AMID CONTROVERSY OVER OFFENSIVE HOMOSEXUAL tweets the host Louis Oscars actually saw an eleven percent viewership increase from the year. Before for what that's worth it was the first Oscars go without in them. See in thirty years everybody was just fine. It'll be February ninth on ABC yet. Kevin Hart Says No. I won't apologize for these are all tweets in the Oscar said. Yeah you don't want actually we don't care we don't need you what everyone acts like they don't care about the Oscars or awards ceremonies anyway but something is driving this huge force that is I love him. A lot of money is thrown at it. But but you love because people fuck up yes. Yeah I like an awkward political speech I like when it goes too long and music has to play him off.

"That's what makes you laugh. I read you read the headlines. And it's just so she says you know Fade the Horse to the dragon so then they have to drag it. Of course they have to bury the whole horse and just hide it all okay. They have to. They can't move it elsewhere berry in the insist on watching the killer. Yeah so they're gonNa you know We'll take it into whatever the LAUNDROMAT. She watches them Berry. She sick because she's like I know Ma fighting killed thirteen fourteen horses a year. No exaggeration. So it's not very many farts. Well that's how many she got caught. Here's the thing. She's caught all the time but they're getting better at not acknowledging it in in fact this I don't know how many years ago this started but the guards the royal guards the holy guards. Do they base forward. You know how supposedly they can't move move. Yeah well that's being's right. They don't because they're training themselves to not look at when the Queen Farts or then they have to put together together a horse so they stay still all the time. You could actually being a regular civilian sneak into the castle very easily. Because even if they hear like sounds they won't turn in case. It's really the Queen farting and they have to kill an innocent force right. Yeah there's no point in having guards at that point statues right. They started like about when she was eighty. Shoot she'd far. Someone takes notice she goes. You know off the horse and it's a real thing it's like one hundred sixty five hundred seventy horses right there air. Yeah yet that's good math thank you. It's sickening it's disgusting anyway. That's what's on the royal family. And then she's she's upset that somebody wants to move to. Canada ended up. I don't WanNa be watching all this animal abuse. Are we still in politics corner. Captain Swig US saying no. I never learned anything about this in school. She's on our money but we don't give her anything. We didn't learn about any of this stuff Jagmeet to institutionalized racism. You find it all on your own. Unfortunately Ali La Freak is responding to him. Kind of weird. You never heard of this school. Maybe you weren't listening could be. It could be. Do you know we we all you know we all. We'll have a blind spots. You know what I mean no well this is what I'm saying. Okay prime example. Here's a fascinating fact. Okay okay this is more fun than sad if you fart into an airtight jar. You open it up. Yuki covered up quickly. The far doesn't diffuse. Did you. Not laming it stays concentrated in a jar you can put a you can fart in a jar close it and years later you can open it and it'll be well now you have to do it within the decade because otherwise it just cifs to the bottom and becomes a thin dust Albert.
