"It comes to wins Championships? All those banners now is trying to get yellow from the Jordan years. What do you got now? You're an embarrassment. That's what the Bulls hold the league back because of how bad they are. New York holds the lead back to the Ark It's There are so few Michael Reinsdorf. This is where I believe he sat down during all Star Weekend said. Wait a minute. I mean, I'm glad everyone's here, but people look at me looking at us as a laughing stock. What's my legacy? Not financially, but just from one lost. What can I do to change it, John, I'll take a step back. Put new blood in here because no matter how much I try and the job, people are always going to criticize me, we'll bring in a corner show this you bring in Evers Lee. It's great. Now get that boob out of there. Get a new head coach in someone that can actually coach this young core. You go to the top shelf and get Billy Donovan Look at the perception the Bulls today versus what it was 72 hours ago. So the way this whole thing went down, And when we were working nine to noon, Danny and I and Chris would talk about this. This is the gods are list 100% truth and the people that Hate John Paxson because he wasn't a championship winning architect. You need to let it go. He's moved on. He's got a consultant's roller ambassador's role. He's part of that family forever, and he should be. He's not involved now on the day to day. And he went in. This is exactly how this went down. John at the end of November, beginning of December, walked into Michael's office, it said Michael We need to make major changes here. I've had my run. It didn't get done. We need an entirely new front office. Michael and John had lengthy meetings. They formulated a plan and then they went to Jerry, and without Jerry signing off, it doesn't matter. Michael is the president and Jerry said Okay. If that's what you truly believe we have to do. Go make it happen, and so John He knew a K He knew a few other guys. They tried to talk to Sam Presti in Oklahoma City. Yes. And then the pandemic kit. That wasn't gonna happen. He was like $9 million. He just wasn't gonna happen. He was going to move in a panda. They get a K. And then they go to Jerry and said, OK, we'll get west on cell junior, and that was probably the direction they were going or Amy Udoka. We've got this list of really good assistant Paul Silas Junior and Adrian Griffin. And Jerry's response was look These are all great names, and I'm sure they're good assistance. They've never been a head coach. I've been down this road. Whether it was then he dont that grow or Bill Cartwright or Jim Boylan or Tom Thibodeau who was great. You know, I love them. We tried the college route. Tim Floyd, Fred Hoiberg. None of it worked. I would like If I'm going to write a check. Get me someone with some cash. Well, there's this guy, Billy Donovan. We didn't think was going to be available. He just became available. Jerry said. Get the checkbook out, Make it happen in the cloak of darkness. By the way, Where was the rumors outside of our text messages? Where was the rumors of like Donovan? The Bulls is goingto have most of the people out there said he's going to Philly. He's gonna pick the Philly court. Right? And I thought Why Chicago's a better market. Philly already has their two stars, and I'm not sure there. Those two are good enough to be championship one, too right? It's a ceiling on their success, correct playoff team and the Bulls or not correct choice. It comes down to money and opportunity also, But if you go to Billy Donovan, go, okay. We'll pay whatever it is 5 25 54 30 will throw bonus is in there. We're irrelevant. We need you. He's gonna have all the rope he needs. It's not like he's on this. You see coaches hired to be fired. Billy is here for the long haul. This will be the last job that he ever takes. But more than likely more than likely. I want you to look at it. From this standpoint to Bulls fans, if some of of you and see Red Nation are skeptical, not sure I just want you to think about in these terms. Okay? Think about like this. When you walk into a room, and you do see those championship banners from the Jordan years again, those air campaign shit from the past is still part of it. But it's in the past when you walk in a room and you see someone like Marco Grizzly. 10 years with Nike made all those relationships with players and back channels in Nike, right. You see Cornish, Elvis and the type of ability the ability has with connecting with European players and having that connection right that pipeline and Billy Donovan also is in the room as a master recruiter from Florida when he was able to do with the thunder, all those things, the room looks better. Because now you get three guys that's recruiting you instead of saying packs and Gar you to try to find the best free.

The goal line down five with a chance and cam gets stuff not even close cam though and Ross did put on a show eight total touchdowns between them but the Patriots coming up too short here is Cam Newton on getting tonight on that last play. It was a great play by. Day We had favored gain program the couple of times figure. This thing into the world to midtown but identity today. Said so confident about. Being bowed executing. Could've balanced it no looking to. Better. Better here at the end. And You know we we put ourselves in a position to win and. When you do that and just gotTa Got Senate, show you'll be. and. With that, we welcome in our quarterback Michael Vick Mike. Let's start there. Would you make that final play the game? Cam said they may have went to the where one soon times with that play but that's the play that they executed. Well. Over the last two weeks and I think he scored a touchdown early on a similar plate and even ahead of play action off of that place. So. Bet Play is a play that they can use any. Situation would be third down. Razov and has been effective. I honestly don't think it should it came down to that play. There were plays in a game I think maybe one or two cam probably would have won it back. A couple questionable, third-down caused, and which they ran the ball nate allow Camden Doda football so. Probably should've never came down to that wind play particularly, but I think cam play well play winning football.

They're gonNA come situations in the game where they gonNA. have to find ways to win games like this and I'm pretty sure that they'll go back and look this film. It comes down to them being.

Becoming Better Grownups with Brad Montague
"So Brad thank you so much for joining me today I'm really excited to talk about so many things that have. Like the way I had planned on us having this discussion, bring you to the audience has really changed because the world has changed I guess my first question I would ask is, what is it that you solve for the world? You start with the biggest of the big. I guess. So I mean, that's the hope always that somehow were all being views and to realize that you already are being views in some way. That you don't think is remarkable because you've been doing it all along at least that was what it was for me. I didn't realize that encouraging people and telling stories and loving people around me was such a big deal, but it's the biggest deal. So the problem I'm trying to solve is to constantly. Love better in invite other people to love better to. The thing I've learned the most I think in listening to so many interviews with you reading your book is I never hear you mentioned? Money I. Never Hear you mentioned how is this going to turn into a business and that's something I want to learn to do better I believe I follow my passion and my purpose, but I do also always think to myself. Okay. But is this going to be worth it financially like is it GonNa be worth my time financially and I just never hear that. From any of the endeavors I know you've pursued in, we're going to get into some of those. But for example, when I hear you say something like that and our listeners are hearing you say something like that. They think that's great but. I just lost my job and I don't know if this industry is gonNA come back a while love and I want to show up in that way but I also have to focus on keeping a roof over my head. How do you balance those two in? Do you think about it or is it just an abundance mindset? I think it starts with wherever you are so whatever job you have Becomes, a space to love people better wherever that is I've worked plenty of jobs where the lesson I learned was I'm not good at that like I'm not supposed to be doing this right now. But in that space, it wasn't a wasted time I learned how to communicate. I learned how to work with people who've greatly different from. You pick up things along the way. And the moment for us. All is the moment that we're in. It's the moment that we're in and how can I bring my best self to this moment or what do I have to learn this moment would have to share in this moment. When you shift to that, you start to realize you always have something to offer. And to the world around you has something to offer as well. That's a constant opportunity to love and it ignites something in you where I'm definitely have been finding in myself when people that are in my immediate orbit that the more that you kind of focused on how you can. Operate from a mindset of not I'm going to do this for Love I want people to love me engine I. Want Them Ause we operate sometimes Wanting. To be loved when the best work comes when you operate from love like we do things, we do work for satisfaction sometimes like do this, it's GonNa make me happy. Yeah. When you're with somebody who works from satisfaction, they already are at peace and are so grateful to be where they are. There's just a freedom. It's dazzling like I've experienced that with the woman who worked I live in a really small town. Willing to work at the post office and is like watching Michael Jordan play basketball like seeing her just love people taking packages and mail and their long lines. But she knew my kids names, she knew. Everything about people in the community where packages were going where they might be headed where we've had problems. And when we through a parade for her. Was My way of showing. Well, we got a bunch of kids to line up and just surprise the post office one day and he was at her birthday or juice. The parade. And I'm in a marching band outfit. ill-fitting marching band outfit. We go in and I say Okay Dana come on out it's time for your parade. Everybody's here to celebrate you and she was very grateful what she said I have worked to do. I love her. And I just thought that was so great like yet thank you I'm so honored you would do this but I'm already. Happy this towner. Love and the people that

Thanks to her father's job as a newspaper executive and the war was fought far away. The war coverage also sold -papers. So while you're a burned, the Barnes family were doing just fine the news that kept her family wealthy told a clear cut story of good and evil of following the paths of righteousness, and since they also showed young Suzanne how easily ideology and rhetoric could spark world changing violence despite the ongoing war, the Barnes family were picture of. Success Suzanne spent her childhood and Idyllic Arizona Country Club since swimming pools making the most of the warm desert climate on paper Suzanne lived a charmed life. But behind closed doors, she struggled with mental distress Suzanne experienced voices and visions which she insisted came from psychic powers. Vanessa. Is going to take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode please note Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist but she has done a lot of research for this show. Thanks Greg according to a two thousand seventeen study from Yale University psychiatrists the hallucinatory. Of Self identified psychics has considerable overlap with the accounts of voice hearing patients. The only explanation Suzanne had for her childhood premonitions was clear audience however, the frequency of Suzanne's voices and later visual hallucinations suggests she was suffering from a mental health disorder of some kind former FBI criminal profiler. Delong speculates that Suzanne may have had schizophrenia which is marked by auditory and visual hallucinations. In any case, Suzanne seemed to suffer from a form of psychosis still undiagnosed young Suzanne built or identity around what she believed were her psychic powers to her the visions and voices that played out in her head were glimpses into the past and future. These supposed predictive powers made the world feel different to Suzanne. The people around her glimmered with after images only she could see and echoed with voices audible only to her even at a young age. This second sight made her feel separate from other children.

Catherine Sherlock On Moving From Overwhelmed To Empowered
"Nice Guy Community welcome back. So today we are focused on moving people from overwhelm to empowerment and to make the MAC side of your potential as a person and both as a leader as well. So Catherine Sherlock, she plays on the edge of human potential and focuses on elevating the leadership conversation and leadership from the inside out. So she operates in the realm where many are too afraid or too. Distracted to go elevating lives and leadership in the process I'm really excited to talk to her today. She comes through a source through through Michael Hand I think over at over it barefoot wine. So I'm excited to have you here Catherine welcome to the show. Thank you doug. It's great to be here. So how'd you get hooked up with that with that whole hand guy? Do you remember? you know I think it might have been through Lincoln actually. Wow that's terrific. We and now we kind of we have a good connection. So I really enjoyed talking to him. Michael's come on the show a couple of times and and he and his partner Bonnie Harvey. Of course, everybody knows them from some of the past episodes they started barefoot wines and and turned it into a a eight and a nine figure business and did a great job with that. So you come through a very high source. So Catherine appreciate appreciative that you were here today and thanks for being here and and talk in your topic and your Azzoni of genius today. Hang Stack. It's great to be here. So let's talk a little bit about one of the areas where I think that many entrepreneurs may not focus specifically on, but it's an area that I think that We are remiss if we don't spend some time on it and it's talking about the world of leadership. So can you share maybe before we get into the actual topic for the sake of our our entrepreneurs that are in our community? Can you share what your span on leadership is and how they got to be something that you became an expert in? Yeah, you know I I come come from probably an unusual path I was an environmental and sustainability. Consultant. And I did that for a long time and I have a master's in that area. and. You know. I do have a desire to change the world and impact the world and I guess that's why was in that career to start with. But yet I kept finding that it wasn't wasn't having the impact I, wanted to be having. I wasn't able to open up to conversations. I really wanted to be having and when things came to a point where I had to kind of shift in what it was in my career. I ended up turning conduct my personal life and what I had been doing in my personal life. And that mixed with some new areas like organizational development, which which I moved into as I was in sustainability consulting. Just just need. Gid from from clients. And I started to realize that you know a lot of our challenges start from the inside. And yet we so often focus on especially as leaders in business, we focus on solving them from the outside. And it's not your best leverage point. So before you take a deeper dive into outside versus inside, can you maybe just take a thirty thousand foot approach and maybe what some of the things that we're working on that are maybe Say Wrong and leadership because there's so many different styles of of of leader in types of leaders that are out there and they're so many different ways in which we can lead. But what are you saying is some of the common pitfalls within the realm of Leadership Today Well in leadership development. It's based on trade theory a lot, and that means that somebody goes out and maybe they do some research on some leaders or maybe they just come up with a list of sort of must have characteristics. And then they go in and they say, Hey, these are the must have characteristics i. mean you seen those articles all the time of the year that ten, the twenty the I saw one that was one, hundred and one. Hundred one must have characteristics leader. And I think it's so backwards to who we are and. What actually brings out our best selves our best leadership abilities. it's that trying to adopt something that makes us feel like impostors. Instead of. What I really think that we're. Were meant to do is really deepen into our own personal gifts. And then you connect to then you're not trying to inspire anybody then you're inspired yourself. And your teaching other people how to inspire themselves.
ON The Frontlines Of The Youth Climate Strikes
"This week we go to the frontlines of the youth climate strike movement. There are hundreds of protests going on all around the world today as young people, school children from Australia to Iceland come together to protest about what they're calling the crisis of their lifetime climate change. Of course, what they see is politicians inability or unwillingness to do anything about it to the global protests that is underway right now, students and workers all around the world of flooding the streets demanding action on climate change, Maggie, Rulli that a demonstration in London with the latest Michael with thousands of protesters, right underneath parliament, and what's so striking besides just the sheer size of protesters here are. The age of people who are demonstrating almost all of them are students that's hiding just nine years old. We spoke to a group of seventeen year olds who said they're here today to fight for their future. Now, the goal of this strike, really all these strikes around the world it's a send a clear message to world leaders ahead of the UN climate summit happening this week in New York climate change protests happening right now in lower Manhattan this is video from chopper four showing the massive crowd marching from Foley Square the courthouses down to the battery among the people flooding city streets were students who were allowed to skip class today to join this 'cause. I told with Jerome Foster. who had seven sounded watching documentaries about our planet go activated and started climate blogging creating virtual reality platforms social justice. He's now eighteen has been climate striking for eighty one weeks in front of the white. House. He founded one million of us to get youth to vote this November Jerome is one of eleven million people from over one hundred and forty countries the climate striking and skipping school to tell us we need to act now. I stopped by asking Jerome where he is now. I'm visiting New York City I just moved here for college, but I was born and raised in Washington DC. I'm going to college at Peace University and Columbia Columbia basically majoring in computer science specializing artificial intelligence. are distance-learning others are like mixed waken coming class in? Their dorm near the off his classes, some of them, most of my classes right now are digital. Have One. Now. So tell me about growing up in DC and kind of what led you to get into the place where you founded the organization one, million US. So where I grew up in Washington DC right around like places. And forests and those like a huge place for me to explore my neighborhood. So I kinda grew up getting in touch with nature and after years of like understanding what nature wasn't had really appreciate it. I started watching documented by astrophysics and learning about like what are world's about like what a black holes water were imposed all these cool late science things, and after that, I started watching documentaries about my own planet and how our planet fit into. Astrophysics. into the rest of the world that every time they talk about something else beautiful it's like but humans are burning it down and but. Are Continuing to extract coal and an oil and natural gas to power earth than is going to continue to see species go extinct and like that was kind of a wake up call for me understanding that our earth is actually has like trouble going on but still being like six or seven years old was like. This isn't that big of an issue. Adults are GonNa fix this adults definitely going to step up and take action but Learning later on like it didn't happen. That's that's not the story as the navy faded it. kind of grew into another understanding that like if the corruption is the unwillingness to have moral clarity won't stand up to corporations and that they don't have the political leadership to acting say, we need to hold you accountable and like as older I was like, how can I get into? Really. Getting their attention actually taking action when my friends kind of toby lunch table they're like, Hey, you should start into pitch. Okay. Cool. So like for sixth seventh and Eighth Grade I posted every single day. and. Like facts and got to like and I was like I got to convince that climate change because back then like global warming is a hoax and everyone believed that that was the big struggle and like today it's not that same conversation. It's about how do we take action but back then it was all about is it real? And I did that for six eighth grade in ninth grade I trying to transition. To. More technology and building I reality environments. So I mean when you say like it's ten years, it has been view like if he started when you seven that. Yeah. I started virtuality company called Vr, and basically it was the idea that like we can use virtuality. Gaming Place, but actually civic engagement accident building empathy only a few people will be able to see it because it's so expensive to create and it's so hard. Tribute it out. So I, kind of transition into. into journalism and it was because I started watching my documentaries again. It was Leonardo DiCaprio's before the flood and like in the last five minutes he said we need commentators then covered as if it's a lot we need young people we need people to come out here and start talking about time change in a new way. So I was like I can do that. There's like I'm I'm I'm with around blood so like two hours.

"Maybe we'll start with. Way Your interest in Mahamoud. Way Did that how did that come about? When was that? So since by had? I probably I got interested in Mahamoud per se early in Grad school or perhaps a little bit before that might regional interest in Buddhism back in high school days early in college was mostly in San and I always expected that would be the form of Buddhism than I ended up practicing but the as says avid my then girlfriend now wife and I ended up traveling overland India in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, three into nineteen, seventy four, and then ended up at coupon monastery just outside. Katmandu where we studied where Rama Tipton yesterday in London Lumberton. And those famous co concourses which are still ongoing by merrily introductions allom Rim to the stages of the path of course. Llamas, OBA has a particular particularly in those days maybe a little. So I don't know He had a particular teaching style wary if you're at a month course, you could pretty much be sure that half the time was going to be spent in the lower rounds. So he did delight in. Those and Mama yesterday would, of course come in and remind us that we all had put a nature. So it was kind of A. Tough. Cop Nice cop routine and away. And you know he was he was a it was kind of overwhelming for me despite my interest. But as despite my having majored in religion in college and so forth. But. All the complication you know both the details of rim, how Karma works all the different realms, the scholastic arguments back and forth about beginning less mind an emptiness and so forth all of it was incredibly impressive. They were particularly impressive as practitioners as people who lived out what they had studied on what they were teaching but I I also began in in the few the few hours that were that I had hadn't disposal to to read. I think it was probably some poems by Miller wrap up where Branson book by John Blow Fouls, which just had a little bit of discussion. Mahmoud. and. The way the way I took it brightly. At times this reminds me a lot of ZAP it a bid, it short circuits all the detail, all the ritual, all the scholasticism. All those kinds of things that just tells you to realize the nature of your mind. So it appealed to me. Even that? Sort of a a hidden card. Yuba. Lurking inside this is fledgling gay look back. And I kept that in mind when. Year or so you're a half later I ended up graduate school at the University of Wisconsin, studying under shapes up SOPA. who was the first as far as I know the first Betton tenure at American University, certainly the first Tibetan guess. Who was tenured at American University and again to to study with guesses OPA both in the context of the graduate program that Wisconsin and at the deer park would a center as it's now called. Founded. In the mid seventies was too steep yourself in again are a great deal of the the complexity, the ritual, the richness, certainly of of the gaylord actual tradition and once again. The. Reading Mamo drawn decide what kind of balanced helped balance things out for me. So the number of the papers I wrote at Grad School, you know we're on the Mosit- as of India or or soccer punditocracy critiques of Mahamoud, draw various topics like that. So I, you know even in Grad school I I had this interest You know it sometimes said about Chinese practitioners. They're confusions during the day and Taoists. At Night I. Think a part of me that's was during the day and At night. Of course went when I began to discover that was that there was a whole Gaelic tradition of Mambo. I'd been vaguely aware of because it was a little translation that had come out at the library of Tibetan works in archives and. I read through that and So you know after I got Grad school sort of begun by my teaching career. I. Along with rank, of course, bring my dissertation into book form of pretty much everybody wants to do at some point are almost everybody wants to. Buy began to again sort of on the side begin to begin to investigate Gaylord Mabul dress, and so that's at least in terms of the genesis of this I. Guess That's That's how I would I would explain it. In a this dungeon have any. Teachers. Teaching. Mahmoud to you know you know during we went and saw on trump shays league. Once in Chicago he was notoriously late. He was typically drinking soccer when he was typically brilliant. So you know everything we had heard was true. And I think later in the seventies and into the eighties I began to to go occasionally to cognitive teacher but no, I did not have a regular. Teacher and I. I guess it's fair to say that I really never had a sort of regular teacher although in more recent years I've studied some weakening. European. Fortunately for us has his world had ordered in Minneapolis just. Just a few miles from where we live. So now, my my interest I mean I was interested in cognitive because if you're interested in mom will address even from the Gaylord stand going you clearly have to begin researching. Kogyo because. Even, some texts presents the. Is Fine Llamas. Book with. Alex. burs. The gala argue slash kagyu tradition of Mahamoud address. Implies that it's a kind of a sing credit tradition or a synthetic traditional might be a slightly better word So you and it's very clear that the first Panchen Lama who was one of the tutors of style on one of the truly great figures Gael history. He clearly was familiar with cargill literature and and it would seem with some Kogyo practices so. In my in the process of beginning to research, Ma Gala Mambo. Dry Inevitably had to begin reading at least a lot in In the calculator corresponded with scholars argue. Of various sorts Michael. Roy. David Jackson others. Of course the way these things work you you've you dig into you want your insulin gay look initially you dig into the cog you and then you get into the cockpit realize Oh God. All this comes from India and you've got to go back and look again at Sada. High and the other message you gotta look at the time. TRAS. Very, clearly, the textual a kind of sources for Mahmoud to discourse and behind that. Then of course, always these claims that there's a Sutra Mabul dry and so you begin digging around in sutures that may mention the word or may talk about ideas that are similar and so. I ended up going down this kind of rabbit, hole. That led me deeper and deeper back into Indian tradition and it started out as really odd. I'll do a few little translations and right any production suddenly was this Gargantuan projects that threatened to be about just about everything in. Indian. In Tibetan. Buddhism. Because in a weird way Mamo Dra, it was said, could be found everywhere in India, wants about bottles.
"michaels" Discussed on The MMQB Podcast with Peter King
"Welcome to the Peter King podcast. This is the season opening Peter King podcast. To interesting guests. But I've Al Michaels on the eve of his thirty six season doing NFL Games we'll talk about everything. And particularly we're, GONNA talk about. Mike Tariq Oh taking a few of his games al very willing to do that this year, and we're GonNa talk about the New Stadium Al's hometown Los Angeles? So stay tuned for that and I'm also going to be joined this week in the week that the Kansas City chiefs begin their defense of their super bowl championship tyrant matthews safety team leader for the world champion Kansas City chiefs. Before. You hear from them. Just a few thoughts on my ill-fated picks and I say ill-fated. because. I've been doing this for thirty six years and I've picked it right pick the super bowl correct twice in thirty six years so. I wouldn't take much of what I say with I wouldn't take any of it to Vegas or wherever you do your gambling. But I'll tell you why I made the pick. I picked a Baltimore Tampa Super Bowl. I picked Tampa. Winning the Super Bowl in Tampa, which would be a first. In the fifty five year history of the Super Bowl, a home team winning on its own field. But I'm GonNa tell you a little bit about why I made pick and. I think if you've been reading me this summer particularly on my trip to Taybeh, you saw how Tom Brady was fitting in Tampa. But I you know. Basically here's the way I sort of view making picks like this at the start of the season. If I if you ask me right now who the best team in football, I would say Kansas City. They've got twenty of twenty, two starters twenty of twenty one. Coaches back. they've got the best player in football in my opinion Patrick Mahomes. But I think one of the things that notice is when this fifteen consecutive years without a repeat winner A. Repeat. Super Bowl winner. So that's one part of it. I think the other part is that. You know on September eighth as I record this the Tuesday before the start of the regular season. I can't think of a single year even in the Great New England season of two, thousand, seven where they went sixteen in Oh in the regular season I can't think of. One season in one team where. It looked the same on February eighth. As it did on September eighth. So what's going to happen I don't know but I'll give you three quick reasons why I like Tampa. Number one I think. Brady gives them. An efficient quarterback which they just didn't have last year. I use the note, my column this week that. Tampa Bay one seven games last year while turning it over forty one times the last team to turn it over that many times or more in the NFL. Was the Cleveland browns three years ago and the Browns went oh, sixteen at year. So you know I think there's gotta be something there to be turning over two and a half times a game and still winning seven games. All you have to do is look at the last two games of the year last year. When Tampa Bay should have beaten both Houston an Atlanta. But. Jamie's Winston threw six interceptions. So I think that's one of the reasons why bullish in Brady coming back obviously so much more efficient quarterback. But you look at the at the cast around Brady and the very young cast on defense. And I think particularly in when I look at the at the top to bottom the receiver group Titan Group, even running backs now with the addition of Leonard Fournette. I just think this is going to be the best set of ofensive skill players, the Tom Brady's ever played with and I include two, thousand, seven with that. With. Randy Moss in New England top to bottom this group is better. One thing about Tampa. that. The thing that I normally would probably worry me quite a bit. Is that other than Rob Gronkowski they don't have and Brady obviously they don't have people who've been down the long road and gone and multiple championships before I would think that's a little bit worrisome. Think that. In o'brady is the rising tide that lifts all boats and I don't think that's going to be huge factor in this season. I think what could be a difficult factor is that? A The bucks even if they make the playoffs may have to make it as a wildcard. And then could get to the Super Bowl could have to win three road games which. Obviously. is going to be really would be really difficult giants have done it twice but you can't really well giants one one home game the one year against the Patriots but. They have done it. Pittsburgh is done it, but it's it's very, very difficult to do obviously so. I would I guess I would just say that that this is a this is a pick a gut feeling. And I just think Tampa is going to be a really good team in a force to be reckoned with this year. Two other quick things about my picks. Baltimore winning the AFC. Think that you have to look at the entire of landscape. First of all, Baltimore has much easier relatively speaking schedule than let's say Kansas City in Baltimore has a. Ranked by two thousand, nineteen schedule the easiest schedule of foes in two, thousand, twenty in the NFL after they go at after they go to Houston and week to they do not have a long road trip their longest road trips seventy minute flight. To Indianapolis so. I think Baltimore is in good shape and obviously, I, think everybody would say boy we really got to see Lamar. Jackson do it. And, there's no denying he's played poorly in two postseason games so I think that I think he will be better but I also think one of the things about Baltimore in drafting J. K. Dobbins in the second round this year the Ohio state running back they are even deeper To supplement what was the best running game in football last year by by yardage so I, think they're going to be good enough so that all of the pressure does not have to go on. Jackson shoulders..

"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. 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.

"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 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. It was not a we have a connection. I lived in Nashville for a very long time. I was in radio there in I saw that you have a.

"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'm GonNa get you up like there's no one else. Sunset Your Sugar Daddy. Right was if you WANNA go that far it was a good song beanie amy. It was really. 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 think Michael Key Bret Michaels That may be me. Britney Spears I caught starstruck with Bernie Spitzer that. I'm pretty cool. I feel for the most part. You guys thank you so much.

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. Holy Shit Wait. Start writing start writing. Id to manifest Syria neither manifest exactly. That's where do I made a vision board. And that's what I'm doing. Herbert Julia astronaut stress.

"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.

I told you that all we've done with the Bronx we get the rock. We get the party legendary legendary parties and we leave something awesome every single city.

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..
