75 years after Hiroshima, they're still feeling its impact.
"This bomb has this frank for twenty thousand tons of TNT. Harnessing, the basic power of the universe. What I fifteen I am on August six, nine, hundred, forty, five, the US Air Force dropped the little boy uranium fission bomb on central hero. Shema. Making it the first city ever to be destroyed by a nuclear bomb. On August nine Nagy became the second when the bomb exploded around thirty percent of Hiroshima's population that were killed instantly many more died in the months and years to come. Now, the bombs brought to an end to world war two but the wool was horrified at the human cost. Russia has since become a byword for nuclear holocaust forever linked to the words never again. Now, this week marks the seventy fifth anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki joining me to reflect on the legacy of those events. Tashi. Tauch. She is assistant professor at Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service and the author of political fallout, nuclear weapons testing, and the making of Global Environmental Crosses. Welcome. Tasha. Thanks for having me and Michael Gordon Professor of history at Princeton University and Co. it is a of a new book called the age of Russia. Welcome. Welcome. It's very good to be here. Now, Michael the fear of the nuclear age is the period after World War Two when the US dropped the bomb. The fee was that the nuclear weapons would become a common part of conventional warfare but in the seventy five years since he Russia and Nagasaki, there's not been a single bomb dropped in a conflict. Question is this because deterrence works or have we just been lucky I would say we've mostly been lucky It's quite rare that there are conflicts between nuclear-armed nations. The major example is the nineteen sixty, nine border conflict between the People's Republic of China and the Soviet Union. So there haven't been many occasions for things to escalate, and there's a strong incentive in those cases to de-escalate. There have however been very close near accidents whether missile just that needing on its own or people launching almost launching in fear of an attack and there. Have Been Plenty of conventional wars that could have escalated that way. So by and large, we've been lucky but we've been abetted by the fact that there has been an ambient taboo that has grown over the years against nuclear first use although that is rarely the policy of any nuclear power. Okay. Now from an Australian perspective, Tic- Japan was seen as an aggressor in the war, the war crimes but also as a victim because of the destruction wrought by the nuclear bombs have is the wool remit in Japan now aggressor and victim. Tarshi. Many pass through consider themselves as victims thinking that Japanese were misled by the government inter- Disastrous Wall Conquest. In this view here stands at the as the ultimate symbol of Japanese victim. But today is victim narrative faces two competing accounts. One is to recognize Japan's acts of wartime aggression, including tweeting massacres, forced labor, and sexual violence. If we see hero Shimmer from this perspective, it takes on a whole different meaning not. Not as a national tragedy, but rather as international event. killed not only the Japanese residents but also many colonial subjects and allied. POW's who are present in the city at the time of the Tom Bombing. The other interpretation that has also gained for Japan is to see the wartime conduct Japan as an act of self defense. This This lesion is narrative recaps here. As the ultimate proof of Western aggression. So fitting the predation of Japan's Joel Roles as. Aggressor and victim during the war will gain the upper hand in the future will depend on how sweet society around the world comes together and develops a shared understanding of the complex legacies or Corna reason on the war in the Asia Pacific region and back to the United States markle. There's a popular conception that Washington had to drop the bomb that it was the only way. To win the war, of course, the war in Europe come to an end in May of forty five. This is early August two, forty five is that true I mean what? What President Truman's options? So. This is a great question and it's one with a lot of confusion around it. Functionally. The only way the only government that had any power to end the war was the Japanese government which was in a position to surrender and the question was when would that happen would have happened later or earlier by summer nineteen, forty, five, it was already clear that the war was militarily lost. President Truman and the US government in general had basically fixed options of what they could do to try and encourage the Japanese government to take that move. There's only two that people usually talk about dropping the atomic bomb or invading the home islands of Japan. Both of those were on the table also having the Soviet Union inducing them to enter the wars of belligerent which happened on August eighth increasing the intensity of firebombing tightening the blockade of foodstuffs into the home islands. and modifying the terms of unconditional surrender to allow Japan to keep the emperor. The interesting thing is all six of those happen Truman pursued all sex and the war ended. It's unclear which ones were determinative. But the point is there wasn't like we had one option or nothing else. The US had plenty of options and exercised actually all of them. On the one level target for the bombs was obviously Japan on another level. Real target was the Soviet Union. How did the Kremlin of you? He Russia Mirror Negga? Second Markle. So. Really, the question here is a small set of people within the Kremlin stolen and his closest advisers and you that there was an atomic bomb project going on in the United States for years they've found that out from spies from Britain from spies in the United States, and they had their own uranium enrichment and bomb development program that was going on at I would say a medium scale What happens after the destruction of Hiroshima is I in absented himself for a few days he went into a depression and didn't. React to any of his advisors and then immediately massively escalated the Soviet development of their own atomic bomb. So they were both caught by surprise and not caught by surprise. It's true that the Americans didn't always think about the Soviet Union as a factor in any decision related to how the war was going to end but they also very strongly, we understood that the key issue was trying to get this the Japanese government to surrender faster because the faster they surrendered the less impact. The Soviet entry in the war would have to how the end game would play out in Asia, my guest, Michael Gordon, and Tashi Hitachi, and we're reflecting on the seventy fifth anniversary of Hiroshima. Tashi. One, hundred fifty thousand atomic bomb survivors still living in Japan. In fact, as a guest of Japan's Ministry of Foreign. Affairs this would have been in September twenty, sixteen I met one of one of the survivors now they're all in education and public law has plied an important part in shaping Japan's post-war Pacifism. Now, as generation dies out, is the role of pessimism in Japanese politics is that diminishing especially in the face of Rausing China Toshi? I don't think the passing of the atomic bomb survivors will diminish the strengths of pacifism in any short-term. The correctly memory of human magazine Japan has been fairly robust and the taken deep roots in popular culture. I can think of a good example that is Japanese animated wartime drama film released just four years ago in two thousand, sixteen cold in this corner of the world. This picture accounts of the wartime life in here she was a smash hit in the box office. Be, atomic bomb survivors will also active in passing down lessons from the world's first nuclear war to the next generation. The city's over here streaming nagy training. Many Japanese Ron Tears as storytellers who share the testimonies are waging victims and a second generation survivors are spearheading efforts for peace unjustice. Well, that brings me to today and really in the last that he is the end of the call was thirty years ago the US. And the Soviets on Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty non stop this was President Bush senior and Gorbachev in Russia in the inside at Union. Then just as it was collapsing now, both agree to significantly reduce their nuclear stockpiles and of course, the updated treaty between Moscow and Washington that expose I. Think it's February Knicks Jeez. So that's just a few days after the next president is warning Michael Do you think it will be resigned. I think that's entirely dependent on the results of the election. Joe. Biden has indicated that he would refine the treaty The trump administration has had many opportunities to re-sign the treaty, but they have not taken advantage of those opportunities yet. Russia's indicated that they're very interested in extending

SEC Investigates Kodak's Federal Loan, Stock Surge
"Last week, Kodak announced, it had secured a seven hundred, sixty five, million dollar loan from the Federal Government under the Defense Production Act to shift gears for making photo supplies to drug ingredients. Now, we've learned that the Securities and Exchange Commission is investigating the deal joining me now with more details is Wall Street Journal reporter Dave, Michaels? So Dave Codex shares surged after news about this loan broke, and that got the attention of the Securities and Exchange Commission. What can you tell us about what they're now looking into? Well, we understand that the SEC has opened up. An investigation they're looking at trading in the shares just before the loan announcement was officially made, and then also how the in the news about the loan was communicated to the wider market. Why is that potentially a problem that Kodak had shared news of this deal with some media outlets before making this public wouldn't be a violation of criminal law, but but it could be a violation of the regulations that apply to public companies, which they can be straightforward. They can also beat her technical, but suffice it to say that public companies have to have a lot of rigor around how they communicate. Information, that is information that is going to influence investors decisions about whether to buy a seller, hold on a shares and if the company released information. About the control loan before the initial announcement in released in a way that was. Haphazard or not well thought through and then that information. Leaked down in some form or fashion to the wide broader market people traded on it than that could be a problem for Kodak as a public company just in terms of their responsibilities in terms of how they're supposed to control the flow of material information. So what are some of the questions still surrounding this deal that our team is looking into right now including this question about the disclosure in the communication? Of the loan, we're still looking into the loan itself in Kodak is saying that. Alone details are not fully finalized and yet the announcement was made last week that it was going to be getting seven, hundred, sixty, five, million dollar loan. So announcing net to the broader market, ensure holders developed certain expectations about how that's going to change. Kodak's business. But the loan is in guaranteed is not finalized. Query whether whether it was appropriate to make make that announcement at the time. We're also looking into continue to look into some of the equity options grants that were made to executives directors in the day before the day, just before the official announcement was made. So Dave, what are the potential outcomes from an SEC investigation of this sort? What can we see come out of this and when? You know we understand this is Very early days of this, I mean after all the announcement was just made last week, so it could take. Months to learn anything from either the company or potentially in the SEC. If actually brought any sort of official claims against the company. So we won't. We won't know anytime soon, and also it's also not clear that this would result in in a in former allegations of wrongdoing SEC opens up investigations all the time they ask questions, they do the dig into something, they take testimony and they might decide you know, hey, this, this was a little weird wasn't perfect way went down, but there's not a clear regulatory violation. Yourself is just something that I think people who are interested in Kodak Interested in in this story would just have to stay tuned.

Working, Making, Creating in Public and Private
"Hi Everyone. Welcome to the. podcast I'M SUNOL and I'm super excited to do one of our special book launch episodes for the new book coming out just this week working in public the making and maintenance of open source software by Nadia Ball and published by Stripe Press. The topic actually applies to all kinds of communities and groups coming together whether it's an open source project, our initiative of Department in a company, a club or a special interest group even group of friends and family because it's all about how people come. Together to coordinate and collaborate around some shared interest or activity whether participatory or not whether code or content, and so one theme. We also pull the threads on in this episode is about how the learnings of open source communities do and don't apply to the passion economy and create our communities as well. Nadia has long been immersed in studying the health of communities including getting funding from the Ford Foundation to study open source then worked at hub in developer experience then did research at protocol labs. And is now focused on writer experience at sub stack for longtime listeners of the six and Z podcast I've actually had her on the show years ago along with Michael Rogers our protocol labs than of the No jazz foundation where we talked about the changing culture of open source, you can find that episode on our site, but in this wide ranging hallway style episode Nadia, and I cover everything from types of communities, social networks, and the evolution of being online and ironically while the book is. Called working in public we also talk about the emergence of private spaces as well as the tragedy of Big Public Commons and how to counter the tragedy of comments which is why I believe everyone should read this book because it's a dirt of literature out there for the era of President Online collaboration creation and consumption that we're in we end with some practical advice for community managers, platforms and leaders, but we begin by defining open source in this context with a really useful taxonomy for categorizing communities. Earlier early was like I really hate this term and I just wish we gotta have something else like public software whatever. Love that I love it too. Unfortunately, it's pretty hard to change terms that everyone. On so I know this firsthand. Yeah. I mean I personally find the term kind of intimidating and it doesn't sound exciting when I say the term open source but it really does just referred to the distribution side of cook the existence of open source licenses made it very easy for anyone to use and modify and re Polish someone else's coat and put it in their own software but it doesn't really say a whole lot about how it was actually produced and so I made this analogy in the book, which is actually an analogy I borrowed from a friend Devon Devon Zuko, she still apple podcast for me I. Love Her yes, and says something like the term open source doesn't mean anything anymore than the term company does it's like, yes, we kind of get what a company is but there are so many different kinds of business models for different types companies with open source saying something as open source tells you a little bit about how the code might be used. That doesn't really say anything about how they're actually being made someone has to continue taking care of it. One of my favorite parts of the book is you actually outline different types of communities you call it classifying project types, but it's really to me how people are. Essentially social networks. Really. So why don't you break down that taxonomy and by the way the reason I'm asking is because when I think of the ARC in history of open source, the concept that comes to mind for everybody is that classic book by Eric Raymond, which is a cathedral and the bazaar and I think that framing has two long framed our discussion of open source and frankly any online community yet everyone sort of has maybe like General Santa W-what community is like others a bunch of members and their and organized around some common interests or reason for spending time together. In that highest level definition of community, there's an underlying assumption that all members are sort of similar than just the term members washes over the underlying dynamics between those different numbers and so what I started doing was saying, okay. There is a difference between at minimum, an open source people who are contributing to open source and people who are using stars. So I try to sort of separate out users and contributors and say, okay in some open source projects or as you said, really communities and general, some communities have high trigger and some communities have high user growth and then there's sort of like. Different permutations of that it's like federations, clubs, stadiums, and I forgot the fourth but toys in me what are so I think it's really useful to start with your taxonomy, a federations and onward. So federations are like the really big projects we might be thinking of like Lennox or. Where you have a lot of people who are contributing to the project and you have a lot of people that are using their project. But there are enough people that are working on the creation of that project that it does form his own sort of contributor community. By contrast, clubs have a lot of people who are participating in Chretien but they don't have as many people that are using it and said a product that's kind of focused on a niche interest. The example to give his Astro Pie, which is a Python Library for astrophysicists right? It's high contributor incredibly interested in that but very low user growth because how many people in the world are really interested in That intersection exactly and toys I sort of mentioned in passing in their police. Interesting thing to talk about that's where you have both low user and Lok contributor growth. So that might just be like a personal project them thinking around no one else is really looking at it. They're sort of waiting in the wings before they become one of the other types of communities
Ben Shapiro on the Michael Brown Shooting
"I'm old enough to remember when Barack Obama went out there during the Ferguson riding and said, people don't make up things like this. He was talking about the Michael Brown shooting Michael Brown shooting by the way, it was a good shoot. In fact, it turns out that after another review of the Michael Brown shooting by officer Darren Wilson, it turns out five years after the six years after the case, the case has been dismissed again, according to the Daily wire. Amanda Prestigiacomo reporting ST Louis County Prosecuting attorney Wesley Bell announced on Thursday he will not be bringing charges against former Ferguson Police Department officer Darren Wilson were fatally shot Michael Brown, 18 back in 2014. Ring, a Thursday press conference. They'll announced the news by prefacing it as quote one of the most difficult things I've had to do, noting that his heart breaks before the Browns. The question for the office was a simple one could prove beyond a reasonable doubt. And when Darrin Wilson shot Michael Brown, he committed murder or manslaughter under Missouri law, Bell asked after an independent and in depth review of the evidence, we cannot prove that he did. He, by the way, is the county's first blast. Black prosecutor he reopen, reopen the case after taking office. One of the reasons he gained office is because of disapproval for no case against Darren Wilson, the first place and then he looked at the evidence, he said, Sorry. We can't actually make a case at his office conducted a five month review of witness statements, forensic reports and other evidence, the AP noted, adding his investigation does not exonerate Darren Wilson. But it's not the way the criminal justice process works. If you're not convicted, that doesn't mean you're not. Exactly that does not mean that you are exonerated. There is no exonerated standard in criminal law. There's just not prosecuted. So you also get to Claire not exonerated. That's not the way this works. L said. I know this is not the result they were looking for and that the pain will continue forever. Jim tally, Wilson's attorney noted Belle's review had the same conclusion as Bells predecessor. A grand jury and the usdoj was Obama's deal J. By the way, there was no crime. The Obama Justice Department at the time, pointed out that there was no crime but doesn't matter. Democrats have continued to lie about the Michael Brown shooting and use it as the basis for a political campaign to suggest that America and police officers are deeply
Meet Stagecoach Mary
"A No! That's what I'm saying like. The Postman only rang once. What. What Oh, oh, Hey, we're on! Hello, everybody! My name is Mick Sullivan and welcome to the past and the curious. This is episode number forty six, and we've done an episode about male done episode about trains, and we're kind of talking about both of those things again, but it's two completely new stories. One of the stories you're going to hear is about owning the dog. And I need to think friend of the show Michael. Fleming for his great reading on that one. The other store you're going to hear is about a woman who was generally known s stagecoach Mary, or at least that's how the history books remember her, but her real name was Mary Field and she was a very interesting person. Helping us with that episode. Doing a bit of dialogue is my friend Molly Victor from well. She's the creator of stoop kids, stories, which is an awesome podcast. Part of kids listen highly recommend. Check it out. Be sure to stick around for some songs at the end and patriotic shoutouts and a little bit of fun hiding out there promise. Let's get started. Robbers didn't scare fields. Wolves didn't scare her either. She had held her own against many even deadly cold weather was of little concern to her. Actually for that she had developed a little trick to stay warm and not freeze during these particularly perilous nights to keep her blood pumping, and your temperature up Mary would pace around her wagon all night long to keep from falling asleep. She figured if she did fall asleep in the cold, she might not wake up. A night without any sleep was definitely better than a morning. That never comes as you can see. Mary took her job seriously she had made an oath to the United States Postal Service and had become the very first black woman to have a postal contract and a carrying route with her wagon and team of horses she was responsible for hauling mail and freight through remote areas of Montana, meeting the train and cascade and navigating to Saint Peter's mission. This is how she earned her nickname stagecoach. Mary the fact is she didn't take that horsedrawn wagon to get mail and freight until she was well into adulthood. For most of her life, she wasn't stagecoach Mary at all, but instead Mary, fields. She had been born on a plantation in Tennessee around eighteen, thirty two was never sure about when her birthday was. Like the rest of her family Mary had been enslaved. Forced hard labor in the field was the fate of many enslaved men and women at this plantation. And Mary grew up to be a powerful young woman who worked beside the powerful men. She was tall over six feet by most accounts, and she had a broad, incredibly strong. Now, eighteen sixty five brought an enforceable end to enslavement in the United States, and while many emancipated men and women stayed near their families and friends. Mary immediately left Tennessee in search of work. She I found it on the river during Poker Games and bull sessions later in her life. She liked to tell the story of her job on a riverboat. The Robert E was a steamboat named after the confederate general on which Mary worked in eighteen seventy, there was a famous steamboat race down the Mississippi River from Saint Louis to New Orleans between her boat and another steamer called the NACHOS. Nearly, everything moved at a slower pace in the eighteen hundreds. So it might be hard for us to understand the excitement of a race travelling at an average of fourteen miles an hour and stretched out over several days. Wasn't a slow as molasses, but it wasn't far off. Nonetheless, Americans paid attention. The plotting pace of the race lent itself to the. Of the day, as the steamboats paddled in pushed their way down the river, small towns with Telegraph, the time, each vote passed by two newspapers, print and several daily editions. As exciting as it might have been to track the progress in the morning and evening editions of the newspaper. It was certainly more exciting to be at Mary Shoes, which were on deck or at sometimes below deck by the boiler of the League. She were called the crew feeding the boilers with anything. It would burn to keep the steam earning the paddle wheel. They ran out of wood for the fires. They'd stoke it with other things broken up furniture old clothes, even somebody's desk. What ever it took to win the race? She said to that end. They actually through a whole side of Bacon in the fire. That greasy smoke may have been the key. The League won the three day race by six hours not long after this through the connection of a passenger. Mary went north for a different, even slower paced work. She arrived in Toledo Ohio for the job. At the Ursuline Convent of the sacred heart she served as groundskeeper Gardner, and handled any other jobs for the community of nuns who lived there. In exchange, the nuns gave her a room board and a paycheck Mary definitely stuck out amongst the backdrop of Solomon religious ladies, sharing space nothing about the holy environment could stop Mary from yelling at them or anyone else. Who messed up her meticulously kept landscaping.

"How does Vena Najah respond to them? Well firstly forcefully, they are not spy. She says they are pawns. Be Very clear. They are ponts. She says you know. Remind reminds us all this has happened before. This is a pattern with China that even in documents released about conversations that were held before Mung Zhou was detained that Vancouver airport in two thousand, eighteen, the Canadian government was reminded. Do this and remember. Canadians could be taken out of retaliation. So she also points out that China may tend to overtly deny a connection, but then we'll always say when asked about two men what needs to happen to have them released. The candidate needs to correct its mistake so in an elaborate wage. China routinely makes the link to, but she says you know ponds just remember they are pots. Let's see another bit of of the conversation which picks up on that very point. So I think it is very important for all of us to be clear on the fact that we can end the extradition process that is within the rule of law in accordance with the rule of law. It is not in any way judicial interference that the minister can act whether the ministers should. Is a second question in that is a conversation. We should be having instead of hiding behind a supposed- independence of judiciary so-forth. Let's have that conversation should administer do that. And how would the minister do that? That then becomes a matter of political discretion Adrian. Just before I let you go. The Canadian government has said that can't get involved in judicial proceedings. Why is she making the argument against her? She says the government does have an option to consider that isn't and that will. She appreciates it may decide. It's on Canada's interest to exercise that option. She wants to know why the doors been closed. She asked Brand Greenspan the lawyer to look at the extradition act he did. He says you're right. Vena nine, hundred, ninety nine. There was a shift in the language of the extradition. Act that says the Minister of Justice could stop proceeding like this at parts of the process and could have done so early on. That's illegal safety valve. In case arguably extradition underway that could be considered not good for count range of reasons. I suppose this is my laypersons. Understand you this, but you know she's taken it to Louise Arbour former supreme. Court justice, shaking to Allen Rock and our boy says yes, minister can and should step in this request to detain and then extradite. Malaysia was a problem from the very beginning for Canada. Lots of people are going to argue it's a bad idea, Venus. Maybe, it is a bad idea. Just have the conversation. We're going to pick this up with Allen. Rock right now Adrian. Thank you. Certainly Adrienne Arsenault co-host of the national as you heard. Two of Canada's preeminent legal voices agree with Vienna knowledgeable former Supreme Court Justice Louise Arbour Justice Minister Allan Rock recently prevent presented to the government with the legal opinion, saying that the government can as you heard. Stop that extradition process against. Joe Allen Rock Good Morning. Good, Morning Matt. Why did you and Louise Arbour feel that? You needed to seek out? Legal opinion with regards to the case of the cases I suppose of Michael's spout recovering in the case of among Lonzo. Well because Louisan I believe very much that the government is pre-empting any discussion of options in this case by insisting. That extradition is like a criminal prosecution and their response when when ministers or the prime minister or asked about this case, well a matters before the court, we cannot comment. The rule of law is engaged. It's improper. Try to influence an independent judiciary, but our fundamental point is that that is wrong at this is nothing like a criminal prosecution. It's an administrative prospects and parliament has made it clear that the Minister of Justice who manages the process. May step into to terminate the extradition proceeding at any time during the judicial phase. One might ask. Why did parliament include that section twenty, three three in in in the extradition act? I believe if you look at the parliamentary debates at the time mad, it's clear that. They. They wanted an exceptional case to be provided for. There can be unusual cases in which the government might decide. It's not in Canada's best interest to continue with an extradition to the most important objective that. We have in putting this before. The public is to demonstrate. The Minister of Justice does have that option. Let's have a discussion about what what those options are. CBC contacted the Office of the Minister of Justice and Attorney General candidates sent us a statement, which in part reads with respect to the extradition processing candidate extraditions are conducted in conformity with the Extradition Act, were well aware of the laws and processes, governing this important regime as Mrs among case remains before the courts, and the Minister of Justice Has Drexel in the extradition process. It would not be appropriate to comment further on this matter. You were in cabinet if you were sitting in cabinet now and this were presented. What essentially is being framed as a trade between Mum Joe and Michael Savage and call? Would you approve that? Well, let's Let's look at that option I think right now. We cannot have that public discussion for for the very reason that you just read out some the Justice Department's press release. They say we can't even talk about that right because the Minister of Justice has a role. He eventually has to decide in the ministerial phase, so we cannot even talk about any options. So that's point number one point number two I understand that reasonable minds can differ on the question whether we should have the minister terminate the preceding now send Mung back to China and and secure the return of the two Canadians. I understand it's controversial. There are those who say it'd be giving into. Blackmail the into a bullying setting a bad precedent. But. This is an unusual case in unusual time W-. It's a very different case. Math than it was in twenty eighteen when it started, who could have known that a pandemic would delay court proceedings considerably resulting in longer detention for the to Michael, so if you were so if you're sitting in the cabinet now, would you approve this? I would debate fully I'd because all the merits? my own inclination would would be. I don't style it. As an exchange of prisoners on the bridge, I styled as a decision made by a sovereign country. That's own interest, not the interest of China or the United States, but our own interest. To end the preceding, and I would be inclined to end the proceeding and to say it's in our interests to do that because our our citizens are a grave risk, because the viruses again live in China. They're having another outbreak. The pandemic has delayed court proceedings so that their detentions going to be prolonged the Chinese now have laid criminal charges and propose a show trial to Canadians on a show trial, and frankly our entire foreign policy is hostage to the situation. But that leads to other questions of at the foreign policy, one is our relationship with the United States candidates stuck between these two enormous countries and see in in the United States and China. How do you think that is being weighed by the Trudeau government particularly when it comes to our allies south of the border? I fully recognize that the prime minister and the government are in a very difficult situation with China on the one hand and the US out the other, and.

"Everyone to hear her voice and this week. She sat down with the Nationals Adrienne Arsenault. Adrian, good morning morning that. Why did Vena Najibullah decide that now was the time to speak out. Well you know. She certainly didn't wake up suddenly and decide. You know this is what I'm going to do today. She has been holding tight and wing this decision for a very long time. She and I have been talking about the prospect of an interview for three or four months now and always for her. The calculation has been what is the risk. If, I say something. How would affect Michael if I don't say something how effect might go multifamily Michael's father, his sister be be cut off from MC communication with the government. And always there were these pauses where she'd say you know. Wait a minute. I have a little bit of hope. Maybe the court case will go. Mum. WanNa Joe's way maybe the as a gesture Chinese were released the Michaels, and then that didn't happen will maybe they won't be charged and they'll come home. That didn't happen. They were charged and I think I. Think what it came down to that. It came to a point where Vena and. And Michael's Dad, his sister said look. We've respected this process enough. The government had I suppose suggested they keep it out of the media and they did that for a long time, and the effect of that in their minds was that in the end there was no urgency. No one was realizing the agony. These families are under and to hear. People occasionally refer casually to the two michaels just becoming so dehumanizing. They had to do something. We've talked about these two men for five hundred sixty two days Let's have a listen to some of your conversation with Vienna Najibullah. Here is describing the kind of person that Michael Coverage Is. He is one of the strongest most determined people ever met and for the last five hundred sixty days, and especially in the last. Few months before the concert has stopped, his letters were testament to that like his character was coming through. Very clearly, his resilience, his determination, his sense of purpose in life. He's someone who's devoted his life to public service. He wants to make the world a better place. And that's why unfortunately he is in the situation. That's why he was in China. So Mad Vena is I have to say a remarkable woman she says she and Michael our best friends. They've known each other for twenty years. She she's a lovely way of phrasing, and she says you know I'm his person. He's my person. They met at Columbia. He proposed to her on the floor of the UN. She says it was a Canadian proposal the UN. and they were separated just before he was detained, so they're not romantically linked now, but you know to me. There's no doubt that there's love there and so she's determined to give everything. She has at freeing him and Michael Staffer and she's got a lot to offer. She speaks English Percy Mandarin Russian. She experienced in war zones. They've they've always pledged that. If something went wrong with either one of them, the other would come and get them and have each other's back, and she's been deeply involved in this involved in. You mentioned Mungo on Joe. the CFO who had an extradition hearing in in Vancouver and Vienna knowledgeable was there. She. Did you know Venus there? No one knew who she was what she looked like. She walked past all those cameras every day and went and sat and listened to everything she could. She has read every letter of the extradition act. She has read every document in the case she when she arrived on Monday to do the interview out, came spilling notebook after notebook with meticulous details about conversations. She's had people. She's contacted the halls of power. She's been barging through She has been meticulous. One of the things that I think a lot of people in this country, and perhaps it's compared to. The mentioned that Mungo Joe is currently living in in house detention, but people have been asking about the conditions that Michael Coverage has been living under in China. She talked to you about that. Let's hear some of that. Basically he has been confined to a single cell. For this entire time he has not gone outside. He has not seen a tree or had fresh air to breathe for five hundred sixty days in one of his letters. He says that. It really ways on the soul when you can see more than ten feet any direction. And that's something that you know that's really hard to fathom. She says basically what's happened is he's living very monastic life now? When the family writes letters, he's allowed to see the letters, but it can't keep them, and so he tries to sort of capture all the words, and although loving them, and then hold them to memory, and he doesn't have access dependent paper until. They suddenly and without notice appear in. He has to write fast, and these letters are beautiful. You know their detail lyrical. She thinks he's just spending a lot of time composing them in his head and waiting and waiting until he sees a pen and paper, and then getting it all down, really really fast foods issue, Matt. There's little to no protein Everyone's very worried about how sparse the nutrition is. A his letters have stopped coming since March. They haven't seen any letters. They're very worried about that. He hasn't had a constantly visit since January arguably the Chinese seem to say because of the pandemic. Poor Vena had to try to explain what the pandemic was to him. He must've thought it was a hoax but want one thing she's learned. Is that he strong a? He has been planking every day. Apparently, he can out plank for twenty minutes I. You know I. Can Barely get past twenty seconds. I don't know how he's done that. We have heard from the Chinese government over the last year and a half that these two men. The government believes or spies, and the the Chinese government has denied that they are being held in retaliation for the Canadian extradition case against among the walkway executive. How does Vena Najah respond to them? Well firstly forcefully, they are not spy. She says they are pawns. Be Very clear. They are ponts. She says you know.

"They've been in jail in China for five hundred fifty seven days, reportedly with the lights on at all times often interrogated for several hours a day now Canadians Michael Savage and Michael Calvary have been formerly charged with espionage this three weeks after ABC, court ruled that alway CFO Mung Joe's extradition. Case in Canada could go ahead Nathan van. Clip? Is the Beijing based correspondent for the Globe and Mail and he is in Beijing, eighth Hello, hello, what exactly are these charges against the two, michaels? Both being charged with illegally sort of obtaining state secrets and an espionage, and transmitting those two parties outside of the countries, a foreign parties, and and the Foreign Ministry today in China made a point of saying that these are considered serious charges, and that's in fact, a legal term because under the Chinese criminal law that would suggest that the minimum sentence that's being contemplated for them. As ten years in the maximum sentence is life in prison. Do we have any sense as to what the basis of this charges are not? The two michaels will no doubt have some sense of what the evidence against them is because they have been interrogated at some length I'm told their lawyers have been presented with some of that evidence, but because this is considered a state secrets case, it is a kept very very secret from the public that includes sort of not a lot of insight into what might be in the indictment. I asked today at the foreign. Ministry. You know whether they could give us some sense of what they're actually accused of doing and got nothing in response, China says that the evidence is solid in the case of solid but beyond that we know absolutely nothing. What happens now when it comes to a trial, what sort of trial would the Michael's get? Likely, a child that doesn't last more than a day and a a trial from their part that they might have little notice about we know this in part because of what has happened to other Canadians who've been in similar situations who described that the length of time before a trial could be lengthy I mean we could be looking at another year or more before trial takes place, and then after that there could be another lengthy delay before there's an actual sentencing, we other cases where where people wait numerous years after a trial before sentencing comes down, so what lies ahead is sort of a very uncertain time line. What's more certain is that the two michaels will remain in detention conditions that are. Very different from what we might expect in Canada is the sense that they would be charged that it was inevitable that they would be charged. Having been held for five hundred fifty seven days. Was the momentum moving always in this direction? Not necessarily so they spent the first six months being interrogated by the Minister of State. Security here and after that they were handed over to the more formal justice system, in which case there was more questioning, and then there is a formal back, and forth between the police do the questioning and and the prosecutors who have to decide whether or not to accept a case. That case was sent back a few times. That mechanism is typically used as delay mechanism to sort of leave to in this case, it seems. Seems as if there was a window that was left open before formally charging these two men there was a window, left open to not charge them because one of the decisions open prosecutors in China as they considered, the evidence brought before. Them is to say there's no case here, but there are procedural timelines which are not completely fixed, but in Chinese was procedural timelines suggest that that by this weekend there had to be a decision to charge or not to charge, so there was. It seems as if they're that decision. Decision was left unmade until the decision was made on the Canadian side with regard to the first hearing the extradition case against Mungo want Joe when she was denied in that hearing, we've now got this result in China, so is the sense that if Mung Joe if that extradition case did not move forward than these two men may not have been charged. Had she been released a which I? Think most people would say was a fairly low probability given the fact that they're you know they're being an ability to appeal any sentence, but had China has made very clear whenever it's asked about the two Michaels they say released Mungo and there is a fairly widespread expectation that if she is released than perhaps things can change for them, but she wasn't released, and so now they've been sort of placed into this justice system, which which moves toward sort of ninety nine point, nine plus percent conviction rate. What can Canada do about this? And what support would candidate getting? Whatever can do from other countries around the world? This has been a question that has. That has concerned not just Canada but other other countries. That have had their citizens taken in the midst of in the midst of sort of political disputes with China in the difficult question. I mean there are there are measures that are that are harder measures in terms of trying to exact reprisals, intrigued and other ways but all of those I think for for the Canadian government have to be. Measured against this sort of action that a government in Canada wants to take, and of course the sort of action that a government China is willing to take a one would expect to be different from what A. What a Western democracy would take, which which I think is at the heart of the issue here you have a government in China that he's willing to exact trade, retaliation, and other things where you have a sort of western governments that Try in some ways to to be principal in terms of how the governor and there's. There's a mismatch there and so what the Canadian government has tried to do is to work with other Western democracies to apply pressure that way to make the argument that if it can happen to, our people could happen your people. This is not just a Canadian concern. This is a global concern but of course trying to get another country to really go to bat through your people is a difficult thing because every country has its own interests in China.

I assume or work domestic business yet couple things. First of all love Nashville on arrange their off a brick church. Pike lived for the longest time. It is truly music and I Know University of Mississippi to my not my internet data up so I'm just saying that mixed with Nashville. I love it. I still down near all time. My oldest daughter Rain Elizabeth's now of all things you ready for. This is my come up as a dad. She is now. Sports illustrated one of the Swimsuit models of the year so mixing that with Belmont. She's very intelligent young lady and and so is my youngest daughter. Georgia blue is a songwriter. So we go back. She wrote the Salman broken with me. If Band Abba chance check it out. It's a beautiful song especially right now facing Gercy. We're going through the world so they could check that video out. I just called unbroken with Bret Michaels in my daughter Georgia michaels but the truth of the matter is they are great kids. I hope I've given them enough. Positively strength to navigate through life. Because eventually you gotta you protect them especially if you can but eventually they got to come into their own now. I taught them with their gut to know what to do. Something goes back was if you go to Belmont that means you are phenomenal singer but probably more importantly It's it's a place that just creates amazing songwriters. A lot of my friends went there. Looping back to every rose when you wrote it did you know it was going to be a hit. No here's the craziest thing you ready date. This is why you're great. Talk like this. This is the truth. We wrote that song when I sit there and wrote it. I wrote it after playing. I tell our band never never pigeonhole us. Let's go play everywhere. We went played a a country bar. We played a Honky Tonk in Dallas an estimate. The phone call. This is a true story and we wrote this. We wrote in place then was called the risks. It was like a country bar right and we went and played it and you play two stories up so none of the people in the grounding and solace. We're just up there playing rock music and then we finished and they kind of looked up wave and went on about their way and I went back made. The phone call broke my heart. That's a horrible feeling. By the way heartbreak it's undescribable feeling you know and mixed with your castoff. It's a lot of stuff going on. Luckily music therapeutic to me wrote it on the Acoustic Guitar. No lie wrote every rose that night and then we took it to the label and they bumped it down to maybe like a fifth singer. So here's us. As Sweet Sinai music were taken to then capital. Our first independent record blew up. Sold three million copies there. Like I don't know your us in country with rock and it's sad Hardy Band and then we said we're not going to be pigeonholed and what to do. And so what? A time came out. I record sold. Two million fallen angel went to three million and released every. Rose has its thorn as a role it was just a one of those throwaway songs and it became. Dallas of all places the EAGLE AND THE COUNTRY STAGE. Play the song and then it became the number one of our first number one songs. The people try to have you record it. Not as a ballot. No they tried that in our first independent record I got stories. I I put you to sleep but I promise you. They're exciting. The homeless benefits fight with the guy trying to produce our first album. He wanted talk dirty to me to become A. I'm like what are you talking about? This song is just bad ass straightforward drew hook. You know what I mean. Almost a little bit punkish in a sense right and that didn't go well so he was out and we just did it ourselves and then but that fighting spirit is good. You got to have it you know. And then we with every rose as the. I don't even care. I'm not saying they did. They hated the song. But I don't think they care or like -at's kind of crossover country raw like it's like a new eagles easy. We're not we don't know what to do with Jiang and everything was just straight up rock song. You know that were going out. And so that was it. We put it out and fans and thanking them for people everybody pop rock country relating to that song and helping to make it our first number one song. Yeah I think one of the takeaways of that story is 'cause it happens in every business where you'll have people that are above you. That are supposed to quote unquote. No more than you do. People can give you bad advice and think it's good advice. If you don't stick with your gut and stick to your guns then you could miss out on that. That's massive. You could have missed out on such a massive song but you stuck to your guns and here we are now. You're having this conversation sticking those done. I'm going to say this one time. We have like seven hours. I will tell you the every moment of my life is a roses endorsed moment. It is a crossroads so doing going from there. Jumping forward to rot love.

"I don't want to say I'd be good in a firefight but I was good in a firefight. I got COM. Yeah and said please put that gun out of my head and set it down and look at everything. Carbon all these stories in the book. There's pictures of the hate to say it but my seventies style rocking wardrobe. You'll have to. I mean most of the book is a good laugh. A lot of self-deprecation and just funny stories and facing adversity. You've been weird. A few started singing knocking on heaven's door during that encounter with the guy with the rifles. No that didn't happen. There was a lot of things going through my brain best song right then. I don't know of anyone told you. Brett but what the the idea for this show is. It's an origin story shows so I think it's really interesting. How Uber Successful people were able to get to where they are now. A lot of people know kind of the story. I would assume a lot of people know the story from poison to Rock love to to now doing mass singer but to kind of go through. How did you get to the poison? Days are doing if we go back and hear that story and I guess this is cut going to be probably like almost like a cliff notes version of your book though if you like any these stories than you might want to delve a little bit deeper and the book but the eyewitness Thank you for asking is for real. Because that that's the moment I say everybody. You know back then again in the same as you when you're coming out as a starving musician when you're coming out as a band you have to make that commit At the House oversight guy and you gotTa Bet Yourself I people use that word but I mean that word. You have to bed on you and at the same time. You're an artist here on the east coast plane. Five sets a night three sets tonight cover songs and we try to slip in a few originals with no one's plant into songs. No one's doing things. We made our move to the west coast which at that time on the sunset strip was given opportunities for bands like us but there was a lot of pay to play in all this other stuff going on. I say this to everybody. One of the big arcs is in the story. Is You cite vetting on yourself. You've gotta find a way surround yourself hopefully with great friends and you go out there and the great people that all have the same mission. If you're not a solo artist had the same journey and then we found every way we would go and when a lot of the band's a lot of the bans in La would worry about renting limo to drive up to the troubadour which is colder trying to make it look big. That's great but then you go inside the troubadour or the Roxie inner seven people. Yeah and so we were the opposite of what we would do. We lived at behind a dry cleaner in all many then went to making flyers and we couldn't afford the good colors white and carry yellow. That were expensive so they gave us a boatload skids of green flyers. That's literally where the poison green merchandise and a lot of bands use now is called. Poise degree merchandise color. We got flyers. No one wanted and we put him. Everywhere ended up becoming our trademark. In when you drove by him you'd see him up and you knew we were playing so we would pull up a windowless chevette. And when I say a ban barely ran and pusher urine there we were on our own catering and our own band so but never once during that struggle never once during that struggling new we ever think given in and I just looked at it like these. These are truly my college years. This is my dues and we just found a way to get it when you look back because I have that same thing too. Obviously I wasn't in the gigantic ban but I have those paying my dues memories and maybe we all have revisionist history. I don't know but I look back on those years when I was like waiting tables like moonlight in a radio stations. Making like no money for whatever reason I look back at those as being the best years of my life absolutely it. Just add to that. I never knew anything was bad and I think that the attitude on the gratitude. I'm grateful gratitude is my attitude and I think that with yourself. The reason for your success is the same thing. I look back viewers and nate. Although they were hard times or you consider I was living if there was a below the poverty level I went one level below that. Yeah when I say we. We looked at the back half of dry cleaner because our gear fit in there right on we were on Grove Avenue and down in Washington. And we didn't care. We did everything we could practice a narrow person air repick up in jobs and I could tell you why I learned all my cooking skills by working. Bob's big boy. Yeah joining making Adolf I can. I can cook up. I was good to dishes and a Good Friday cook. I wanted to go back a little bit further. You grew up in Pennsylvania. Is it true that you grew up either in or near a town called mechanicsville yet McCain spur yet syrup I grew up in Pennsylvania but I was originally born in Pittsburgh and Butler. Now my dad was in is a veteran in the navy and we got relocated to the inland naval that came back from his service overseas and And then we got relocated air and made our life in in both mechanics bird and it's Burger Harris version mechanics. Berg sounds like a fictional town from the movie cars. I am amazed at that place exists. It seems very blue collar kind of salt of the earth. People living there and you decided to do something that I assume not. A lot of people in that town decided to do was pursue music. Was that a tough sell. Like on your parents and your family and your friends. Yeah there was a couple of things going on so six years old. I get diagnosed as diabetic insulin-dependent shots a day since then six years old till reindeer stand. I'm going to you and we that was number one. My Dad Naval Depp. In all to everybody their music one bad thing people love listening to it but because a lot of bands didn't make it when you said. Hey I'm going to become a musician we're GONNA go to La. We're going to make a record. It's going to be great and career it. It wasn't like people go. Oh my God. It's thought that's a great hobby But if you wanted a real job you went down and got a job in the off. She went down under the naval. Depp got a job you went. Ups or can he shoot whatever whatever was available for job right and and I think that that is one of the the true battles is again not just betting on yourself believe in to receive it in other words. I had a vision. It and then I went and sold everything. I owned every from skis too. I had a I love motorcross. Oh my favorite dirt bike. You know sold my car in that. That was worth all two hundred bucks and you know all that stuff but I never never had a doubt. We loaded that stuff in a band and we drove to California. Figured it out piece by piece with bobby and Ricky and see see myself in a guy named Matt Smith and we made our moves so you get out here. You're these flyers on this cheap green cardboard paper from so speedy from Sir speedy. You're you're a line cook. At Bob's big boy was there. A paradigm shift. It was there a point where you're like. Oh this is working this is GonNa this is GonNa Happen. Was there a moment? I know you're looking for already. Goes a little for the rain. So here's what happened. Here was the blessing of all of this. We played everywhere. We would sell out everywhere. We Played Two nights at the palace. Place clubs run heard of or a local original ban with no record deal. Then we play a place called the country club at receipt of California. We sign a deal as US is the record label with an independent label called a Nigga by green world at the time and we make the album With the cat dragging. We're talking no money. We slept in the studio for the week that they would let us there We recorded two songs as the almost live and are signing day when everyone else was talking about limos and jets and all this stuff we were setting in El Segundo California on my but underground shrink wrapping and packing our albums and cassettes in boxes to ship off as an independent band. Here was the beauty. We kept all of their publishing. No one wanted any the polishing forever rose or any other songs now that nod by is the exact words From many labels we just don't hear the nucleus of any hit on any of these songs. So here's talk dirty to me. I won't forget you every rose some to believe in none of whom we're GONNA make it. We were a great band for the trip at that. Was it and here. We are thirty one years later but the beauty we got to keep all publishing and we owned our content and it ended up being a a really great blessing most fans as an artist. You're starving you'll sign away for a Limo. Ride and a jacket. Most yields got signed for that in the owned. All your stuff for us again. Went back to this bobby and ricky seats. You Myself sedans delicious bed on ourselves because the money they're giving us as bad loan. Anyway we get paid back and we're starving already. Let's just start to really make it when you really make it then? Are you guys like all right now? We can get the leather jackets. Limos or you still doing pretty blue collar. No we. We ended up ours was. Our dream wasn't so much a Limo Audrey more to get on a tour bus toward the country actually I am not selling some telling you truth. Playing music to this. Omai is still moves. Exciting for me man. I get to play and I got to travel and in a few leather jackets and there are a lot of insane parties but luckily luckily along the way we were traveling. Do we love and but are crossroad. True moment in life in this is in the book. This is the crossroad we play. We were playing nightclubs breaking. We got to play Texas Stadium. It's on the I won't forget you video by poison. So here's Paul Stanley on stage. Who has planning with US Steven Tyler? Smacking me in back wishing luck underway to stage the guys from Boston watching this show. And we're filming a video for I won't forget you in front of eighty three thousand people and I'm like this is surreal. Took me three songs to even get air into my lungs. Because I was so nervous. And then we got done. I party like a Rockstar. Not GonNa lie through down. It was good but I've never been rude. Anybody always treating great. I partied with the fans like a Rockstar and probably twelve hours from then we were driving through. I believe it was Carlson corner either New Mexico or Texas to another show. I'm making this up reported to a truck. Stop I get out. I'm like man. We are rockstars. Eighty three thousand people. This is awesome. We walked in like the Bob. Seger turn the page about five truckers scenario a couple. Maybe a couple people looked at us. Like who the hell are you guys? What are you doing here? And it was the best moment of my life if leveled it perfectly. If there was ever a moment of me thinking Mrs going to happen every day gave me a perfect balance to my life and I took that in that became every rose has its store so it was a perfect moment so that was the moment that you decided to write that song that we well that a broken heart. But I'll get into that. It was right at that time. It was the Put the dime into the old payphone. Doubt waiting for my pieces of clothing I owned to dry and That phone call was heartbreaking. Got On the phone. I heard another guy's voice in the background in the apartment we lived in that for me was my that was true heart moment but from it came a decent song was her name. Rose.

"Whole thing this year first of all I watched wrestlemainia. I'm a casual wrestling observer. At kinda need the use of the odds of the crowd let me know something spectacular or something is just kinda normal. What I'm watching them. Do these moves unlike a signature. Move at just like a move to me. I don't know if this is a big moment or not. I kind of need the crowd. Tell me if I'm watching is I don't really knows for the money in the bank. They tried to tweak this year they had them going up and down the corporate headquarters building. You know they finish the match. On the roof of the building was there was lots of kind of acting involved it was. Kinda more of like a comical thing they had like these punch lines in these things would like in the middle of Maj. They broke out into like a food fight. And I was like I feel like we're just Kinda we're trying to not just have empty arena match. Which is what other match was so I guess that's going for but it didn't really work for me like I didn't get what they were doing this truth which that was actually pretty funny. Go out to the crowd. Wasn't there and he'd like hold the microphone in the crowd to sing along with him like just pull back as other was so a crowd. There wasn't a just feel like wrestling needs. The crowd explained to me of casual viewer. What's going on at Lebatardshow on twitter is where you go if you want to answer the polls. The poll question is. Is there anything in life that Dan Dreads? More than Billy's first of all as phrase Mike Ryan is at wrestling fan. I assume that you agree with this. Oh Yeah it's a hard watch particularly the wwe. Because a friend. Tony Kahn. In E W is doing some really good stuff. Billy mentioned the comedy aspect. They had a main event that fought all throughout. Not just the arena. That they were at Jacksonville which is walking distance from the actual stadium. The Jaguars played they started fighting in the Jaguars facility and it was hilarious. Was a golf cart involves run over by golf carts shopping. An ice machine multiple wardrobe changes got hit with cone. It was really good. So yeah this is. This is forcing some of these companies. It'd be creative in ways that they're not used to being in summarizing some are Lennon's down and wwe has recently. It's really difficult and I didn't even consider casual fans tuning in that. Don't really know much of anything. But it's Wrestlemainia. They have no idea who good guy or bad guy is or what move is a finisher and what is what isn't spectacular. Put it and there's a reason to understand a world that exists where this is in common knowledge with everyone doesn't know what is somebody's finishing. Yeah Yeah I mean. I wish I could walk through all of this but it is. It is very difficult at times right now. They're struggling they need people Billy thank you for all of your contributions to the show at Lebatardshow Bret Michaels GonNa join us here in fifteen minutes. So go ahead. Stugatz The question that you've been wanting to ask me on air since my wedding that you ask me every day off air since my wedding in October go ahead and have added. The group is mesmerized. Here as there's been a source of a subject that you have been talking about since my wedding all right go ahead we you know we asked you who is going to be invited to the wedding and you revealed to us at one point. That carrot top was invited but never showed up to the wedding and every day. Since you reveal that to us we've been asking ourselves I've been asking you did top. Ever give a reason us. Well one of the parts. That was disappointing about carrot top. Not Being at the wedding is that evidently he was off from his regular Gig at the Luxor and he was also in Florida but about two weeks before the wedding. We got a video from carrot top holding up the wedding invitation from his dressing room and saying that he couldn't make it while making a bunch of books and so we didn't know if he was coming or not because carrot top is always on video making a bunch of jokes so I thought when I when I was there waiting for my wife I thought carrot top was somewhere in the audience. I thought that he was just going to spring out from behind shrub. Or something with a wonderful of orange hair and upstaged the bride with you know a prop of some sort some long colorful a Napkin that that went a mile from his pocket the Bryant but I never I never ended up understanding like he apparently was a serious message that he couldn't come there but it was wrapped in so many jokes that I wasn't clear on the fact that he wasn't coming would have been the most famous person at that wedding. Not In terms of like outside celebrity but I mean specifically in terms of excitement to see we found out. Carrot top was going to be there by sleuthing or at least we thought he would be there. Because Billy uncovered hey. He's dark on these dates in Vegas. He's from Florida. This makes perfect sense. He's always face ing with Dan or probably the other way around and we were excited to see carrot top and take those photos and possibly take shots at a wedding with carrot top and yeah that Riley since one else. There's no famous people here in Patrick's there whatever we're care top. Let's get to the carrot top. I WANT THE PHOTO WITH CARROT. Top cared what. I showed but I still feel like we don't have an answer and Dan really doesn't have an answer and deserves an answer. I don't feel satisfied right now. I've been waiting months for that answer and you gave it to us but you don't really have an answer. I mean it was. Kate riddles this. But I'm in this respect. I'm as baffled as you guys are. We can call carrot top. We'll call him during the break. If you want and we will see if we can get an answer here Michaels is GonNa join us at twelve thirty. I don't know what to tell you though Stugatz like I don't have more of an answer than you do on. I'm just marveling at the amusing spectacle of it all because the idea of him at this wedding with you guys wanting to take pictures of him at this wedding is a touch disconcerting. I will say this though when guns N. roses returned. I've told you this story before. When guns and roses returned their first show was in Vegas. Obviously that was a difficult ticket. Stugotz I have rarely and I have been around a few famous people unseen the swell around them. I have rarely ever seen the way that his face is in that city. I deep for him to go wherever it is that he pleases like there was no place that was off limits and when they ask carrot top for identification he would just pointed his face like that was some gangster stuttle. I was not expected from from carrot. Top like he runs that Sia sitting more than Wayne Newton or Robert Gates. Ever get anywhere except your wedding. Geico gets you access to licensed agents twenty four seven which means that. Geico is always there for you. If only everyone was always there for you like your wife when.

We connected that he wanted to do something with Jerry. I think it's equal so I didn't really get to delve into it too much with him because I don't WanNa like. Obviously he knows his own charity. But if you guys don't know it's Bret michaels life rocks in basically you can go to Michael Dot Com and you can donate and the money goes everywhere in one of the things that I so. He does a lot with that. They kill physically. Go like give toys to kids at Christmas. He like. He'll physically traveled to countries to like help. The kids there and stuff And one of it was really cool. Is Kids with juvenile diabetes. They use the money money. The money goes to different different charities and organizations but they'll use them the money to take kids who have juvenile diabetes to camps where they can learn to manage it and to control it and I always have those interesting. I knew Brett was diabetic. He talked about that a lot. I just can't imagine like five Anson's throughout the day and then he gets up to work out like not. This is just an hour-long me like saying how great Michael I WANNA be with. Someone and I mean is hardly because he has now. I don't work out and eat like shit but I wanna be with someone that does work out. Because here's the thing you'll know me too. I'm morph it. I'm not saying I'm just saying in general I'm wharf into the person that around and or vice versa into each other and they've never been someone who's like really into like working out like if I had a if I was around someone that like worked out every morning like yeah probably work out every morning too. I was a little bit. I know you bring up days. And every fucking podcast. I'm so sorry but what the fuck whatever But he kind of did he would. He would go to the gym in the morning and then I started getting a personal trainer going to gym in the morning too. And it's kind of like our theme like get up half sack's okay. Let's go work out. I'm the only bitch gets a fatter from having a personal trainer. I swear it I would go and get so hungry afterwards and I go get like cheese sticks Arby's and then I would go home and sleep which is like awful. I go eat mozzarella sticks. Just pass the buck out like anyway. I know you know. I wish I could have been more of this. Trish more relaxed. I was just so excited and nervous rather about a couple of things. I was nervous. 'cause I'm actually really sucky with the technology even though my job is online and online stuff like I thought. Oh what if I can't hear him or if it's like choppy like it happens all the time with me and my wife isn't great shop. And then he's in. He was in his guitar room for those listening to the Audio. Here's a room with a bunch of ours and it's the room that you always see him in on like tick talk or his website and so it was just a real and it just happens quickly like all of a sudden he popped up and true story true story. I had tickets to go see him on the same tour I was like I'm going. I had I had a full roster of concerts of summer. It was new found glory. I was GONNA go see Bah in Green. It's going to go see my chemical romance MC I had tickets all four nights to their shows and I forget in like those not going to happen. I know that's like like yes and I totally agree like health and safety a thousand percent. I WANNA get sick. I want you know what I mean like. Of course but yeah and then and then it was poison Motley crue Izhak. There was another one but it was. I'm the eighties hairband purse. I kinda was at was actually thinking about this now while so I before. Maybe it was because of the first season rocket. I don't know but when I moved to Hollywood. My goal is to be people Anderson. I wanted to do a sex tape. I wanted to be a blonde bombshell. I wanted have big fake tits and I wanted to be entertainment. Somehow I kind of achieved all that Rockstar has been so I'm just getting But I was in a phase where I was a fucking groupie and I wasn't I wasn't a Groupie for any old. I was a groupie for eighties bands. I can talk about this on the podcast a little bit. What then WHO's still listening? Because I don't really talk about it. It's not like I dated any of these people long term so I feel like I can freely talk about this. There is being called faster pussycat and I again. I use the term dating very loosely. I definitely was just hooking up with all these people is love I would like. Hey Yeah I wanNA fuck like I need a little more substance which I love it. That's what he said at the beginning of our interview and he was just kind of need a personality. 'cause I was so my head was in the clouds. I was just so discombobulated. I'm like trying to because I consider myself to be a really good listening because I love people and fasteners much about I was just I was like I was literally like my little puppy whenever he comes into my house like he's everywhere like a new person comes in he'll p. on like that's how. I felt I was. I felt like I had to actually even though I went to the bathroom. But but when meet these guys off my space he's Eighties Rockstar? So there was a guy named Jamie down from Pussy cat and when he was in faster pussycat so weird to when I worked at a strip club. Godfather is in Canoga. Park actually met like a girl that he was de. His girlfriend was working there at the same time. It was ten years ago. I don't know where he is now but he looked more like Steven Tyler back in the eighties. They'll have the eighties hair which I thought eighties rockstars were really beautiful. They were really pretty. Tommy Lee always had a very pretty look to them. Vince Neal Bret Michaels was definitely the prettiest I thought I and I'm not saying that truly. He was like the prettiest looking he had vince. Neal ask five like they have a similar survive but Brett's face was just so much prettier. Beautiful his is anyways so yeah so. Tamie down leasing or fashion. I got kind of looked like them back in the eighties. But then his my space page where I met him he more Marilyn Manson vibe which I was also kind of like into years. Louis Yeah Love Tannock on this. That's how I was feeling And yeah the sex was not with him but he was. He was he was sweet. He just was smoking. Oughta cigarettes and Drinking I don't know why all these people are hooked up with Agrippa with another guy named Sylvia. Rhone he was the drummer from skid. Row He was like the second drama from skid row. I don't think he was. The original drummer skid row was pretty sick that was a pretty lit I think. Hey roseberry I'm not gonNA lie. Actually if you go back to my early youtube videos I think dancing to like slave to the grind or something is a dancer brand. This is restored because I had a strip stripper playlist and I used to dance to sunset. Boulevard what does this song Hollywood hills it was a bret michaels. Go that far and they use it in the rock of Love One of the Pretty Kitty Justin black and just Gigi Hill. Abi Or she'll go daddy and don ring is like. Please let me enter dues myself.

I used to dance to his dance to like skid row but that was never the answer a poison song I only and that was Michael Solo Song and I. That's how hard corium and I think. The only ones I really know are like from Poisoner Guitar Hero. I just wanted to bang the people in the band. I didn't really know molly grew. I think I know girls girls. I learned more from the dirt but I don't even think they have their real songs in there or maybe they did but maybe like one or I don't remember Trying to think of other eighties rockstars. We know great. It was never like. Oh David. Lee Rottweiler. Hook up with but David Lee. Roth introduced my hot for teacher. Remake daily Roth was cool. He's been Halen. He was so cool to do my intro Omega Sevi- look offer teacher. It was first music. Videos like shady quality music should equality song in my recording. My vocals were awful. This would but this was like my first ever music video. We had no budget. We basically I don't know how he pulled that music video off. We basically did a remake of hot for teacher where liquid a teacher and I was the one in Horny for that teacher. And Yeah we David Lee. Roth just kind came into our we cross paths. And we're like. Hey you WanNa intro the song I did. And he's like yeah and you know what to wrap this all up kind of goes with breads message to just kind of go for it. What did he keeps saying? Like bleeding yourself like it. Believe in yourself because that's too cheesy on the cool the way he said it. Bet On yourself. Yeah just bet on yourself I can do it you know. Just do it and you'll find a way like hey you'll find a way and I thought that was so inspiring. I think that's so cool the whole conversation. It was a mixed like Oh is all fucking hot but also like oh my way to me. My Dad like what a fucking cool dad he would be rape. I feel so honored. I feel so blessed you to everyone who made that happen like Yeah this was. This was cool. I other than that like. Yeah some may say it's unconventional way. I go about getting gas or doing things in life. In general some people might be like. That's what you're supposed to do and people have me that like. That's not do things like you know. I'm not a conventional interviewer many interview. People were like. How do you feel about having hot daughters? But that's what I want to know about. And that's why I like doing podcasts. I I like to ask questions because like I said everyone. That's been on my podcast. I have been a fan of it. I've been mired in some way whether I know them on Youtube or whatever but Brat is definitely. I'm I'm shocked I'm shook he's on the apprentice. He's on he you. He might still be doing stadium tours. The what thirty years after frigging every rose has thorn and he's just going to be doing stadium tours and he wanted to make bats. That's proof right there. Two guys not to make this about me but like fucking go for it anything's possible and you know what worst case scenario like when I was trying to. I was like worst-case scenarios. He was like fuck that girl. Fuck off and you'll let that would suck but you gotTA throw caution to the wind and hey if I ever get to physically be in his presence. I just might melt and that's the truth. Sometimes I get really starstruck. I don't get starch often but I think I got star Trek with the cast of beetlejuice.

I think I'd like to be known as someone that sort of stuck to her. Guns was always like always tried to you know honest and open and You know I just want to be authentic. I think that's the most I think you're doing well. Thank you very much very much. I try okay. I think I'm done when I switch sides. Yeah okay. Think of I'm sick of I've done it. I did some color and hearts and Smiley faces. Oh my goodness Julia realize this could be another career for you. Actually think we're going to start making somewhere chair with those. I think you should which I'm pretty excited about. What's what's your spirit animal. I feel like my spirit. Animal would be like a person. Do you know who Goldie. Hawn is course K. I think Goldie Hawn my spirit. How did you come from execution? Very curious I just think she's really vibrant and like really spunky and I love that about her I just I just I think Goldie Hawn is have you know. I wish okay. If you met her what would you say? That are her her me and her daughter get mistaken for each other and that. I'm pretty sure I'm related to her. And some wouldn't surprise me. I think that's so interesting. You know. She's so awesome. What would you tell your younger? Nothing I just see what happens you know. I feel like if I had advice when I was a kid. I wouldn't have made the mistakes that I've made and my path would be completely different so i. I don't think I would tell my my younger self anything. I think I just let myself learn. I think everything sort of happens for a reason but I'm sort of glad that I've learned how I've learned the way that I've learned it okay. I'm done this really cute. We've we've done it you've done it done. Let's so beautiful and Pete did it so if you want to see what it looks like. I will be posting on Instagram. So make sure you check it out and you guys can possibly win it. Look at that. How would you say house music? Changed Your Life there. Oh my gosh. No it's amazing. Music has changed my life in so many ways. I mean for me. It's it's an outlet of expression You know I've I tend to be a very non confrontational person so for me. You know writing is just as Cathartic for me now as performing is and I mean music is such a huge part of my life. I don't even know what I would do without it. Would you ever read a book? Oh I don't know see I always I always think about Like there's so many different types of writing but but book I don't know if I have the capacity to write a book because you're writing is so like well before the way that I write. I guess so like movies. I love to watch like I like watching movies sometimes more than I like watching shows because I like that. It's like everything sort of condensed into one like two hour movie and I think it's because my brain has been trained to write like a certain amount of sentences song you know it's like it's three minutes but it takes. You can take some time six hours to write and you know that three minutes has to be impactful enough to make a statement which is the same thing as a movie you know you get two hours to tell the story and try to make some sort of impactful statement So like for me. That's how I don't know I don't know. Music is amazing. It's just amazing. And it's changed everything in my life will ever. Seen Hamilton. I haven't yet okay but book I don't know how have you used coal? Probably that I would love to try. Okay look I don't have you listened to the Hamilton Soundtrack. Yes okay so you know. Brilliant it is. I mean I feel like you should totally Yunlin Memoranda. The creator of that doing though that collaboration I feel like would be incredible. I've never tempted to do musical. But that's something that I feel like in the future. I like Sarah. Yeah she did waitress. I actually saw waitress. And it was super super. Good and I've seen like deer. Evan Hansen. Which is like God best musical I've ever seen. I know and incredible no musical. I would totally do that. Was My initial conversation. Trulia from late last year and she is simply the best since then. She's had a lot going on and I wanted you to hear about it directly from her so we caught up on the phone just a couple of days ago talked what succumbing twenty twenty her dream clubs and falling in love one of the biggest things. That's changed since we talked last is that she found love Weird okay so you wrote a lot about your toxic relationships and now you're freaking love and a healthy relationship. What does that difference like? And has your songwriting changed? Its super different. It's funny because a lot of the topics that I usually right. I just can't and I'm just like who am I now grows. No but it's it's wonderful. You know you you sort of adopt your you sort of adapt yourself to your surroundings and when you're in a constant state of toxicity that you sort of where you think you're always meant to live and then you meet somebody completely changes your mind about everything and you had no idea that it could even be that lovely and it's it's such a it's such a it's such a mind fuck in a great way. I don't mean to CUSS SPLIT. Is it's such a mind fuck and a great way. I can only imagine and also you get to sing with him too and you have a song with him so with so when you perform it that just must make it so much more special it does and and makes it that much more special because I've definitely done songs with other XS in the past and this one like just feels right feels different. It's it just feels different and it's great and I hope he doesn't break up with me mineral angel. Oh thanks my love. So not only has twenty twenty just started but you also just released a song diplo heartless. I did you busy busy woman. I try I try. I mean I can only imagine. How many songs have you written so far twenty twenty? I don't even know probably about twenty twenty five. We're only one month in. I know me eye toward for several months last year and I didn't really get the chance to be home and and right and just be in my zone and now. I'm not touring this year so far and I'm home and I'm writing and I'm an I just. It feels good. It feels good to be back with all my friends and just creating again so I want to just be in the studio as much as possible while I can. Okay so twenty twenty. You're writing lot. Could there be music coming or an interview on three or a new album. Twenty three. I'm going to do an album. I don't know what I'm GonNa do but I'm definitely GONNA put out some more music. And and just you know like you try new things. Just be expensive with my creativity. One of my goals for twenty twenty is to be comfortable with the uncomfortable. Yes I love that. So what's one thing that you wanna do that you haven't done in twenty twenty that either makes you anxious or you? WanNa push yourself to do. I think I'm GonNa push myself to kind of do more genres. I think. Loom doing this country. Pop Song with Morgan and Diplo has been so cool and I love just the combining of worlds. I think it's so much fun. And you know we're in a time where we do those things we can you know push the boundaries in say what we want and and blend all kinds of different sounds and perspectives on. I think that's so fun So I think I think twenty twenty is going to be just the year of of of trying. Different things in different sounds in different genres with people that I love. Okay so to put it on the universe. Dream Club Dream Gala. I probably chance the rapper or Rosalia. Oh my goodness I. That would be incredible. I would die or both at the same time. Oh my Sammy.

"Hi Guys I am so excited for you to listen to this week's episode because Jillian Michaels is my guess which is still crazy to say. Her music helped me get through a very hard time with last year and switches meant a lot that she agreed to come on. This episode was actually recorded in two different sessions. The first one was in prison and then we did a follow up over the phone just a couple of days ago since she is a lot of new stuff going on in early. Hope you guys enjoy episode so happy that your hair. I'm happy to be here last time I spoke to it was during me American idol and I saw you on inner monologue heart tours and I have to say. I think that was the best concert I've ever been to. I have never cried. Laughed screamed all in the same caller. That makes me so happy. It was like after the concerts is the weirdest thing I felt like took a big breath in it was like a refreshing feels so interesting. I've never felt that before it a concert but is the most beautiful thing anyone could ever say to me. So thank you so much like. It was the most amazing energy. It was just Karaoke. Basically what I know. I'm I really am grateful. My my fans. Are you know. I like to say that like you attract like minded people. So if you're a very open vulnerable honest person you're going to attract those open vulnerable honest people and that's the that's the kind of energy that comes to my shows and that's kind of energy that I wanted my shows. I want people to feel free to have these beautiful Cathartic experiences and cry and laugh and scream and like really scream you know. Yeah like I was I loved. Oh they're up Uday. Yeah because it's also with their -Peutic for me you know like I love to help people. That's my thing you know. I'm like I'm a songwriter. I like a love to help people so when I get to see. I'm hoping people in the crowd like they're helping me too. So it's like it's just a full circle thing for me for those who don't know you've written for some of the biggest stars you've written for. Selena Gomez Justin Bieber Britney Spears. And that's just a few so I'm curious. What is it like you know writing for so many different artists that have so many different styles? How do you Connect them individually. You know. I think I think it's a personal sort of connection. And then the sonics sort of form around what we right You Know I. I've found that a majority of people all sort of have the same problems. And you know we all think the same things and you know even if you know like take heartbreak for example like it's something that everybody can talk about. The experiences may be different. But it's something that we've all experienced you know if it's not love it's you know losing a friend. It's losing a dog or something like that. Yeah so there's always something that you can connect to somebody with so it's easy to sort of crush on rest because you can you? Can you can do that with anybody. Well before you were your own artists you work for these people. Was there like a specific moment. You're like I'M GONNA be my own heart is I'm not behind the stage anymore and yeah front and center. I shouldn't I wrote issues. That was like the first time where I was like I think I want something. Actually I written a song for somebody and I was sort of supposed to be on it and I wasn't signed to a label at the time and The label that the song was attached to decided to go with another person To be really right at two I did. And and yeah you know like it wasn't something that I originally wanted. And when they told me just for political purposes they wanted someone that was on their label to be a part of the song. I got really sad and immediate realize. You're like yeah so I was in a session with a good friend of mine just and transfer and I had been in the bathroom for a while and he was like. Wow Julie's been gone for about forty five minutes. This is not like her and he knocked on the door and he and I let him in and I was crying and he's like what's going on and I was like I don't know I'm I'm just like sad and he was like well. Maybe this is your brain saying you know you want something more than you think you do. When you're just scared you're scared of it and so when I wrote issues I was like I'm never doing that again now. You're now that you've rent issue. I know it's about a break up. How long after the song did you break up with that guy? Because he did not seem like he's supported you the way you're so right we broke up. Oh dear we've got to hear the song of the news like I'm in trouble. Yes but he wasn't too upset with me because I had written it on the on a day where where like it was acceptable for him to be like okay. I deserve this. You know it was like one of those. We're GONNA PASS PASSING JULIA. Ten different all these songs. Do you regret ever like Jewish. He kept one for you. Know wish that you say that one for yourself You know there's songs that feel more special to me than others but If I'm in the studio with that person even if I love it like that's there's like I'm not how do you separate that only you know? I guess you could you Sorta don't you know? Writing for other people is my first love. That's something that I started with and there's something so incredible to me about having somebody that you just meet trust you so much to you. Know get their thoughts and feelings out on paper and put it together like a little puzzle in on the not built this beautiful relationship with somebody and I just love that so much So like for me writing for someone not someone else and you know even if I love this song it's like I know that you're GonNa love this song just as much as I do and you're GonNa do it just as much justice if I did think given when you're on your kids for adopt yeah but you know that your kid is going to a good home you know when I came up with the idea for this podcast. I was going through a really rough time. The school and I listened to exile. It just came on because I ever on talking and for some reason. I just burst into tears. What an I've never felt a connection to lyrics like I felt with your music. It's truly incredible and you know there are two songs in particular that especially live and happy. No songs were amazing. How Fun One? Yeah I'm sure some curious your song. Anxiety which features Selena Gomez. You've talked openly about you having anxiety. What was the story about creating that song in particular well when I was about nine? I'm twenty five now. I used to have panic attacks. Every panic attacks are the worst thing shows every yeah terrifying young one hundred percent and you saw them all the time literally like every day fetal position. Thought if I stopped talking I yeah I would pass out or like something would happen to me. Do feel like the word like when I've had it before it feels like like things are just like closing. It is that you feel like claustrophobic. My hands shake markets. Where do you like? It's the weirdest feeling and it's all in your mind. It's so wild and I was having them so much and you know I always try to be honest with everybody you know like about how I'm feeling and what I'm going through and I always knew I wanted to write a song about anxiety. I think it just took being in the right place with the right people and me feeling comfortable to talk about it with those people and you know I wanted it to be sort of like I didn't want it to be super heavy. You know I wanted it to be slightly comedic like yeah 'cause like I just sort of went into like laugh at myself. I am the kind of person that will like get ready. And and you know I don't want to go and then like I see all my friends out having a good time. It was like they went without me. Why you're doing that. You're so ridiculous you were invited so like I just wanted to talk about those silly things that you do when you have anxiety and it seems like a big deal in the moment when you look back catalog. This is comedic. Yeah it doesn't logically make sense okay. You're I I can using it. You know it or I can read it. It's my I just tried to be social. I make all these friends with plans and hope they call and cancelled then over. Think about things I missing. Now I'm wishing I was with them to a logical person that does not make sense at all. But the person you're like. Oh I totally get that. That been there done that. That line like it depicts it so perfectly cute. It doesn't make sense when you go out. What did you just did it? Just like come out like out of like it was so easy to those lines. Hard to figure out no it's sort of was pieced together pretty fast. I think because it's something that I deal with on a daily basis. We were just sort of talking about and all the people that I wrote it with two or like highly neurotic so I think like perfect made it so easy for us to just go back and forth with things that we do on a daily basis that were read it just like. Why do we do those things? How would you describe anxiety to someone who doesn't have it? It sort of feels like well. You know everybody experiences anxiety completely different versions but for me. It sort of feels like an earthquake. That just won't stop like and an almost like there's like a million natural disasters going on in your body and there's no cure for chess of no idea how to fix it and it's it can be so overwhelming but therapy and it change my life. Same Yeah I think it's so underrated. It's sauna rated. I think people are like afraid to go because it makes them think they're crazy. Yes something wrong with them but it's opposite because you're just wanting to better yourself what strategies that have helped you. I have learned mostly to talk myself out of things. That's hard to do. Especially when you're in your own head it's hard to do Like when I get really anxious before I go on stage or something I go okay. Why am I nervous or like why do I feel like this? It's probably because you know like X Y and Z from when I was eight and that was then and that's not now and I'm okay now you know or like if I've been doing so much and I'm just like super anxious mike why it's like. Oh okay I haven't slept bobble okay. I'm I need to let people know that I need a second to sleep. And take a breather and then. I can come about this much better. You know. So it's yeah. I've learned a lot of like little baby coping mechanisms. Yeah I feel like those. Are The little things that help you get through the day and I think of anxiety is like okay like when you have it like you always have it some degree. I think I think of it like a glass of water and the water's filled and that's just it being moderated when something that makes you anxious. It's like the water overflow out in that picture and that's a really good mental picture right. I feel like he doesn't like okay. Good Yeah do you remember the first time you ever experienced it You know I was about seventeen I had just signed my first publishing deal and I think I experienced like this immense pressure.

Let's turn to the two michaels that Jason mentioned Michal Kovac and Michael Spot or they have been held in a Chinese prison since shortly after the arrest of one show. The conditions are reportedly very difficult long interrogation bright lights on twenty four hours a day no access to family Bryan. Gould is a friend of Michael Staffer. I consider him one of my best friends in the World World Liberal from Alberta from Calgary I'm from Edmonton we don't let our friendship. He has this real gift of Maki. Friends this real emotional intelligence. But he's just like this ordinary down to Earth Guy you could possibly imagine. I know somewhat how he's doing. Certainly the access very restricted some of his conditions and have improved somewhat. I think perhaps despite all the physical difficulties with this situation the lights on and all that sort of stuff all the time and underneath this this charisma and gregarious nature. He's got a very tough mind. I'm just admire them. All the more or the strength and showing right now in this situation I I don't even want to think about it too much. It's really difficult the other Michael. Michael Covert is an analyst at the International Crisis Group Robert Molly as the president and CEO. There Robert Good morning thing to you. Good morning we heard a bit about how Michael Savar is doing. What can you tell us about how your colleague Michael Coverage as well as I said? There's some details I can't get into. They are really the the province of family but I could say obviously very difficult conditions and light years away from what we just described as you just described. His lungs is conditions There's been some gradual improvements since the early days of his attention but he's still living in extremely harsh conditions Little to no contact with others. There's limited access to any activities. Now he's coping with this. You know in ways that I couldn't even imagine and doing everything he can to keep his own mind his spirit Active Alive liven doing everything he can to remain connected to the outside world but It's obviously a very trying period for him and all all his loved ones. What what else can you tell us about the conditions we've heard again? That's that's the lights are on twenty four hours a day. What else do you know? What else can you tell us? I don't WanNa get into into it. Depends I think some of those conditions have improved very You know marginally and gradually Of course the fact is he shouldn't be there in the first place and so we could talk about. You know marginal improvements over time which which are important and and much more should be done so that his conditions become far more Acceptable but the bottom line is it shouldn't be there in the first place. He is a A victim of of what happened between Canada the US and China and This is not this is not the right response with China China as we just heard. You has many many tools at its disposal to try to get ms long out. It has has She has limitless funds. One thing that China shouldn't have done is is is is arrest Michael Reagan hold him as a as a as a defacto hostage. Did you almost said kidnap. So yes I don't mean that. They detained him. That was. That was Do you see you see a direct connection between his detention and the arrest of you know. I don't think one has to be an expert in in Chinese politics. Understand that he michael was doing in China China what Oliver analysts do round the world. And he's been doing it for he had been doing it for longtime transparently going there talking to Chinese officials briefing them on what he heard and ask ask them questions. About how China could play a more productive role in his view and our view in resolving and preventing conflicts around the world and suddenly nine days. After from his mom is arrested China's authorities discover that he's been engaged in a legitimate activity. That just doesn't hold water. It's clear to anyone who looks at this. Why this happened and It's it was obviously a wholly arbitrary arrest and now a wholly arbitrary right detention knowing him as you do and again. I understand what you can and can't say but what do you know what how he's coping with the situation that he finds himself as I said I mean I just can't imagine how he is coping as well as as he is. He's using the time to think to to to to reflect. Try to do everything you can to stay in touch with people on the outside world. He's maintained a mental strength. That is to me A knocked all every time I hear reports of how he's doing so so given what he's going through I think it's remarkable but of course it's extraordinarily trying and difficult and the fact that he doesn't know At all how long he'll be detained still has not had any contact with any member of his family Th that takes it's toll but I have to say and I think every member of feels the same way He's been remarkable. Where would that strength come from him? I don't know You know I think nobody is prepared for that kind kind of Experience that kind of of trial and I think one discovers whether those inner strengths when one is faced with it and Michael obviously didn't didn't he probably was better equipped than than than most of us. Maybe he discovered areas of strength and resources that he didn't even suspect he had. What do you think the Canadian government should be doing to try and get both of these men freed really second? Guess one thing I'll have to say. The government has been extremely family cooperative and and and and we've worked hand in glove with them every step of the way to see what we can do whether it's to put pressure and persuasion towards China or work work make sure that the United States keeps Michal Kovac on their agenda when negotiating or talking to the Chinese about any of these issues. Have you smoked. Have you spoken with a new Canadian ambassador. Senator to China Dominic Barton a half. And he's somebody who I knew from before he actually called me before his his appointment was publicly. Let me know that he was going to become the ambassador Asadollah and to say that he wanted to work with us. Seek our input on on on on Michael and then say that he wanted to work closely with us and I remain in touch with him and I I know he's doing everything in his power and again this is you know Canada's obviously on I don't need to say this on the show but it's a difficult situation because in many ways it really depends on what happens as long and that's both in the courts and in Amer indie you in the hands of the United States. Not so there's only so much in that that the candidate could do but hopefully The efforts will pay off and Michael would be home relatively soon. It's not just these two men that are being detained in a Chinese prison without charge Alex is the Secretary General of Amnesty International Canada and he tells us about an Ontario man. His name is Hussein. Jalil is a weaker Canadian. And he's been imprisoned in China since two thousand and six. The Canadian government has never been given consular access has never been allowed to visit him in prison because the Chinese government refuses to recognize his Canadian citizenship can't even verify his mental state his physical help. Okay his wife and four children in Burlington Ontario and have now been separated from him for close to fourteen years. When you hear that story what goes through your mind? I'm not familiar with it but I make a broader point which is what what I just heard and everything we've been thinking over the last now four hundred days plus You know in my role in the crisis groups will we've been advocates of engagement with China working with China for China to play a more active role in the world seen as a promoter of of ideas to resolve and prevent deadly comics which could affect its interests and the interests of others. And whenever takes actions like this or what we've just heard it undermines that case. It makes it much more difficult for those of us who believe that. That's the kind of relationship that one should have with China It sends the wrong message. It certainly sends the message that people have to think twice before for travelling before doing business before academics WanNa travel there and of course You know the treatment of others just makes one more more questioning of of Of the role that China is playing but again that doesn't detract from the fact we continue to be in conflict with China's authorities new and we continue to share our views. Not just about Michael but about the role that China could play around the world. And you're just in the remaining seconds we have. You're still optimistic that that relationship is one can move forward in a meaningful way. There are a lot of people who say that we need to rethink seriously rethink. What Kennedy's relationship with China in twenty twenty you know again I think ultimately there's not much of a choice because China is a growing power and Canada and other countries are going to have to build a strong relationship or a productive relationship with China? China has to make that job easier and a one st one step. It could take would be to release those that it's that it's arbitrarily detained inc.. It's a very difficult situation and we will continue to follow this. I I appreciate you speaking with us this morning. Robert Thank you thank you Robert. Molly is the president and CEO of the International Crisis Group. That is where Michal Kovac works like a covert Michael SPA for being being held in a Chinese prison at this moment for more C._B._C..

La since the press conference last Wednesday. No no I've been gone. We ride on the road. We run tour and then I just. I'm back here and then tomorrow night. I fly down to Florida and were there for the thirteen fourteen fifteen for the The arena concert and then the boat show so the unbroken tour continues for the Solo thing and then of course you know the big news going out with Motley and Leopard and Joan and you know I. I heard some of the press conference bread. Even I wasn't able to be here for it and the one thing that came off man which is really cool is you. You really genuinely are excited to be out with. These band is bands and excited to be on this tour. I mean poison you guys have been kind of like on an every other year thing and it really came through in in your enthusiasm for this so I know you're pump for it. I am and let me say this. Not Not only that but you know I kept putting that Karma out there to get it done. I just kept doing it over and over again and finally came through when everyone no egos. Everyone's ready to party and put on a good show and and like I say we're gonNA make it amazing. It's going to be an incredible torture. Everyone's fired up all nothing but hits all night long and you know Joan Jett's incredible and of course with Motley and the Leopard guys. It's amazing you know. I was thinking too quick things. I know we're short on time. Couple things that strike me about this tour of the one thing that jumped out at me immediately was the fact that as far as the three Well all the acts. But for you and Motley all original members which is unheard of with bands with history like you guys have and Leopard it is basically as original as they can be so. That's that's crazy when you think about it not only. Do you have three bands still really good and still at the top of their game. But it's actually the band's it's the real deal and it is top of their game and this is what they said you manage hits the history and like I was saying you talk lukens stuff about the stones I mean that is that's legendary them out plane stadiums they'll be plainer own stadiums here soon. These guys are great and like I said that's you you you and me are always pushing the live music rock and roll dream. We've been doing it forever and let's say we can say we've had some legendary parties together. Oh yeah the last thing we have. We have ice at room temperature. Never forget that one. I need ice cubes at room temperature. But here's there's last thing that I thought about a M- only half joking here. It's well documented in music history. That poison has had their dust stops on stage. And and God knows there's been dysfunction. Motley God knows documented dysfunction is Joe Elliott going to be a referee at some point on this tour. Yeah I think Joe Joe already volunteered. He said look. They're all the dysfunction between these two and the price fights pyro the good songs. Joe Let me tell you something I think Joe can throw down. He'll get right in the mix. I know he's big. He's GonNa be dodging shares and Bass Guitars and God knows what flying Brian around halfway flame. Throwers Nicky Byrne. Somebody who know what's going to happen I. I'm still okay. Trying to recover from my hangover from when I went overseas to play H. You're the last face I sold before one over at an Iran that would sleep. Keep thank God. I wasn't the last face you ever saw period man. That would be a bad thing. Hey I gotta run man. It's great to hear we gotta do way more. I know I know you're busy.

"michaels" Discussed on House of Kim with Kim Zolciak
"Now, here's your host, Kim zodiac Bearman. Welcome to this episode of house of Cam. Oh my gosh. Christmas was yesterday. And we are actually prerecording this episode. So that we can enjoy Christmas with our family as well. So we will update you guys on our Monday's episode of how our Christmas went. Everybody's thoughts. I might even brings semi shithead kids in here to explain to you. But anyhow you guys were just two days away from Christmas. So I'm very very excited dream big December you guys this episode though, we are so excited. It's going to be jam packed. I know it's going to be full of all kinds of useful information, you want to tell who we have coming on. Okay. You guys. I'm like a little star struck over this. I've been a huge fan of hers for a very long time. I mean, I don't a longtime. She's been at her craft for probably twenty something years say in is a master hot, still energetic. I've never spoken her personally. So this'll be interesting. I'm hoping she's as dope on the phone and her energy is through the phone as she is in her books. But it's Jillian Michaels you guys. She's like on the New York Times bestseller, eight king times amazing. That's just one of her many things. She's been on biggest loser. She's done. I mean, she has a new book you guys, I'm not even supposed to be telling you this before him. But I have to because I'm obsessed. It's called the six keys. It's so sick. I feel like there's a lot of hoopla around health. Like, this is the new trend, and this is an old trend and we should stop doing eating meat, but we should stop also eating dairy, and we should just not eat carbs. And it's like what the right thing to do. And the right and the wrong thing to do her book is so crystal clear like I feel like a two year old could read it and understand it. It's pretty simple. It's very simple. It's such a cool, easy read. You guys are about to hear what I found so amazing, and I totally agree with and live my life and complete alliance with what she says there's a couple of things, but are are really easy, read and. Yeah. I mean, she's written a lot of other books as well. But this is her latest one it just came out a few days ago. You guys I recommend for New Year's Eve Coronado gonna do Bishop boards with the family. We're going to stay at home. I have the book, of course. And I'm obsessed with it. But I definitely recommend getting the six keys by Jillian Michaels, maybe before the new year. So the guys can read how your health and better your life. You know, it talks about anti-aging things to do in that regards upgrading your cookware. Don't worry about the microwave put thought into your plastic sex wind faves. We're gonna get into it. Anyhow, I'm very excited talk a little nervous. I still get a little star struck. You know, I've never interviewed somebody. I've only always been interviewed. Right. So this is new for me, you guys I love I love the interaction in the transfer of information from successful people to successful people at so cool to hear you talk with people in in you, give your inside how you relate it to your path and how you've got your success. Obviously Croix has also had media training, and I never have. So like Christ so well-spoken, and if you ever watch any previous interviews of him throughout the NFL in his career, you he answers so precise. Well, we're groomed to give the uphill. Never got. Bravo. Never gave me media trading. Love the drama. They want you to slip up and say nuts. NFL does not want. You to say nothing nuts. They just want you to give the politically correct answer. But no, Jillian is obviously very very successful. She has a credentials and badges that that a lot of US Dream for she's a master of her craft. She's an eight time New York best best. How you set New York Times bestselling author been a multiple successful shows. She's a producer just she has figured it out. And I can't wait to maybe pick apart her brain and say how did she get her success? Maybe we can get something from her. But just an amazing amazing..
