Mnuchin Says U.S. Will Consider Another Round of Stimulus Checks
"Some good news for those who are hoping for another stimulus check from the federal government. Eric Watson is a congressional reporter for Bloomberg Very strong. Steve Mnuchin came out a two White House today and said, they're looking very strongly. Another stimulus package looking another round of direct payments checks the $1200 check two individuals They're good looking at help for businesses and possibly some age of state lost revenue. We also seeing Kevin McCarthy's a House Republican leader. He did a press conference this morning as well as saying that he and which McConnell, the leader in the Senate, are looking at doing a package by the end of July, I think is very much still alive issue. You know, even though the unemployment rate is down to 11% still historically very high and the president's motivated with the election coming up to make sure that that number gets even lower pain, Wally says there is ongoing disagreement over additional federal aid for states and localities. Republicans. They're worried that Some governors are going to try to fudge the numbers and make up for physically responsible policies intentions in the past, they want to see really documented Cove. It related losses, expenses and really narrow that down. The Democrats propose a trillion dollars in that age. Another big point of contention is on unemployment insurance at the top priority for for liberals in the House. They want to see the $600 per week bump that a lot of unemployed people are receiving. Now through the end of July. They wanted it extended, possibly the next March, while linking that to state's unemployment rate, So if things do look better in Texas or another place Like that, then that would drop off. But Republicans are growing in many parts of the country, especially, you know, in the upper Midwest or elsewhere where wages or much Well, our people are receiving a significant premium over their normal salary. Your wages By staying in unemployment that could hinder the ability of especially small businesses soak your people back to the workforce. So that is a real bone of contention. I think it's going to be a really tough one to crack. Ah, but at least one Ah, Senator yesterday was telling me on the Republican side with me.

Hangar Flying to Favorite Airports
"Let's kick things off. and. Let's start sort of sort of closer to home of the three of us come from different parts of the country and different experiences. all around, but Let's start here in the mid and just kind of round. Robin sort to work our way out so tom that you kick it off. Of your favorite One of your favorite Midwest airports. Sure well. Obviously, we all. We all know and love wittman regional airport here in here in oshkosh which. A lot of people don't get to experience during the other fifty one weeks of the year, but it's a very vibrant little airport on I guess it's kind of unique in that you know we have this giant runway lay out that. You know in in many ways serves the needs of the tenants airport, but also another ways you know uniquely serves the needs of Va.. So it's, it's a very big airport for. For what it is, that's kind of neat but. But yeah kind of going a little farther afield of of. I all A- Wisconsin That is sixty three Charlie if I remember correctly. I look. Central County, airport. Is a little grass strip about twenty miles thirty miles, maybe north west of of Oshkosh. That has three grass runways including one. That actually has a parallel grass taxiway. And plenty of space departure airplanes, they even have a little bit of a campsite with a with a fire ring and. Some showers that are available and stuff like that, so you can come in and camp but it is the absolute epitome of a grassroots airport, and the really neat thing that they do at Iowa is on every Friday. They host a lunch for members of the community as well as members of the classic car community locally. And just fly in there pay a couple of bucks for lunch and on a good day in the summer you'll see I think their record is similar north of eighty airplanes. So that's like a really really amazing annual fly in that we do every every week up here. That place really is so much fun. like you said multiple grass runways and number one. When you when you told me that you're you're airstrip. Airport has a grass runway. You know already sold when tell me has more than one than I. Just swoon a little bit. That's so cool and they've got their. Big Open sort of hangar style clubhouse, and there's a million airplane models hanging from the ceiling and pictures all around all kinds of cool history, and you know a great cast of characters. Food is always amazing. Now one thing that Tom United talked about this before, and we've. We've been up there. Many times in order for them to to make this work into serve food without necessarily. Having to call themselves restaurant you know they're still. They still have To adhere to and everything of course, but basically you join. The is the Central County Sport Flyers. Central, county flyers associated. Center County Flyers, association, and a lifetime membership is something like eleven dollars, and so you get there? You show your membership card, and then you are part of the Social Club and you can, you can eat at. Boy It's it's well worth it. You still pay for the lunch. But, just a just a blast to go up there. See what kind of airplanes come in. You mentioned classic cars being a big thing up there. One of the biggest car shows in the country, if not the biggest actually held up there, and I allowed kind of out of the way out of the way spot and that culture pervades around. I think so many of us who love airplanes can appreciate. Cars and motorcycles and other vintage machinery, to yeah, and you mentioned the CL-. The Central County Flyers. Association I believe under Wisconsin Law. If you're in a social club, it has to have some kind of a common purpose so in order to join the Central County Fires Association you must. Attest that you are dedicated to the promotion of General Aviation. That is something that I don't think any of us would have any trouble doing. and. I'm willing to go on record. Yes, we can. We can manage that. So Chris, how about you? What what are you got in the Mid West you like, so? I'M GONNA turn slightly south and talk about the fond lack airport Fund lack airport. I spent a couple of days at it a couple of weeks ago because they let a stage, the Huey there as we're moving our new edition into the museum. And I didn't realize how busy that little airport is that we had a couple really nice clear days and I was blown away. That was a that was. A Busier airport does few days. I, was there, but what really stands out for me is the early trips when I would come from Pennsylvania to hear you know fund. Lack was the first. SORTA signed. That something was different. You heading towards something great, you know you're you're coming up forty one. It's just on the left side of forty one and like you'd go by this normal general aviation look airport and there'd be like a hell diver sitting next to the road. See. You knew that like that's not normal. You know and there'd be a Corsair there or and. It was it was basically overflow for the show and They basically had their own air show down there. I mean you just walk around looking at some of the coupons just park down there either you know someone rides or waiting their turn to get into the field here Nash cash in but it was always that I like I remember. It was probably pretty dangerous because we would always likes trainer. I'm probably not pay close attention to the roads. We should pass and fond lack airport just to. See what was out, and what was there and it really really helped peak the excitement of close out ten hour trip

Why Does the Hellbender Salamander Need Our Help?
"Lauren Vogel here. A remote freshwater streams somewhere in the eastern United States the waters cool. There's a reasonably fast current, and the bottom is littered with big flat. Rocks sounds peaceful, doesn't it? What you're imagining is a perfect environment for trout, and for something else to every so often anglers who cast their lines in such places wind up catching North America's biggest salamander. This thing leaves an impression specimens measuring twenty nine inches long. That's seventy three centimeters have been documented and the beefy EST adults way forty five pounds. That's about two to two and a half kilos. These four legged amphibians have compressed heads and torsos, meaning that judging by outward appearance. It thinks someone had squished these critters flat with a rolling pin. Another key attribute is there brown to Greyish skin which hangs noticeably loose around their flanks. Early settlers didn't know what to make of. These guys baffled by their appearance. Some folks began calling them that offers devil dogs or mud devils. The species would receive. Scientific name crypto branches allegany intil eighteen. Oh! But nowadays most people know this strange salamander. The Hell Bender. Hell benders are divided into two sub species northern Arkansas and southern Missouri are the home of the endangered ozark. Hell Bender the eastern hell. Bender has a broader distribution having spread itself across the Great Appalachian region and parts of the Midwest. Though sadly, it also got conservationists worried. Some Amphibians are equally at home on land and in the water, but hell benders are more or less totally aquatic. Their skin absorbs oxygen, pulling it straight out of the water that leaves Hell Benders at the mercy of pollutants and excess silt runoff dumped into their streams by forest. Clearing projects sure doesn't help. One report published in two thousand seven by the US. Fish and Wildlife Service estimated that the ozark hell bender will become functionally extinct by the year twenty, twenty six in less protective measures are taken. As Twenty nineteen. It was still classified as endangered by the US fish and Wildlife Service which said that in some good news, most populations of the hell bender. Endanger of extinction and therefore do not warrant listing under the endangered species, act. To help boost populations of the ozark hell bender. The Saint Louis Zoo teamed up with the Missouri Department of Conservation and established a successful breeding program in twenty eleven. And just last year Pennsylvania reading awareness about this wonderful species by naming the eastern Hell Bender it's official State Amphibian. Maybe such efforts will improve the Salamanders PR. There's a pervasive belief that the hell bender has venomous bite, but this is untrue. The Hell Bender wheeled no venom and spite rumors to the contrary. The Infineon's do not hurt game fish populations. crawfish make up over ninety percent of the hell. Benders Diet, other potential prey items include tadpoles, smaller, Salamanders and small fish. The creatures are most active at night. They spend their days taking refuge under submerged logs or stream bottom rocks,
The Science of Happiness
"This episode at this fraud moment in our history. We're bringing on a leading scientists to help us tackle one of the most pernicious misconceptions that humans have ever fostered. The, very roots of the word happiness reflect our assumption that happiness is something that happens to us rather than something that we can actually cultivate for ourselves HAP- ha. That's the same root of such words as hapless or haphazard, it implies luck. But again, happiness is actually a skill that we can cultivate. Emiliana. Simon Thomas Helps people learn this. Kill themselves. She got an online course called the science of happiness that has reached more than half a million people across the world. She's the science director of the Greater Good Science Center at UC, Berkeley and in this interview we discuss how to make ourselves happier through generosity, which is literally part of our biology. How the pleasure of caring for other people means we'll do it again. How empathy fatigue however is real, and then we debate a little bit the meaning of selfishness, and how we've got love wrong. Before we dive in I wanNA, flag that this is a conversation. We recorded late last year prior to the pandemic and the recent racial justice protests here in America, but the insights in this interview are as vital as ever so here we go with Emiliana Simon Thomas. Nice to meet you in person I don't know if you remember this, but when I was writing Timpson, happier I used to call you to make sure I was correct on my research on a few things I do remember that, but it was a long time ago and I'm glad I was able to be helpful. That was just going to say. My memory was that you were really helpful. It's always willing to hop on the phone, so thank you belatedly. You're quite welcome. It's a pleasure as a pleasure to have you on the show your parents were Buddhists while so my parents grew up in the Midwest and one of them came. Came from an Italian family and the other Irish family, and they were not Buddhists as young people, but I think they're sort of early life. Spiritual experience left something to be desired for them, and they wanted to see the world in a different way, and they. You know got in a car with their. You know minimal belongings and came to California and as young people here they found a community and that community where people for the Buddhist leaning and yes, so I grew up going to teachings to temples I. Remember kind of crawling all over my parents while they were sitting still and you know keeping this sorta serene demeanor. I remember China. Take the sweets off of the altar. I think that's a no no. And I heard that when you would throw tantrums over not getting enough desert, your parents would say life is suffering yeah. I don't know. The Buddha would've. Would've. Doors the usage of his signature phrase. I totally agree it's a little hard on a little kid, but you know I fought back and in a strange way it's fueled this lifelong quest for understanding like real happiness in life, so so what? HOW WOULD NOT GETTING ENOUGH DESERT? Play into understanding real happy you know I just didn't buy the notion that we had to always look through a lens of the potential for harm or disappointment or let down and I think that was the message I was getting the. Hey, you know I. Don't get enough. Dessert. I didn't get as much of a toy as someone else got. Or you know we don't have as nice of a house as someone else. Then even those people in their comforts are probably disappointed by various things in their lives and struggling in ways that I can't imagine I don't think. I picked all that up. Though I was like. No sometimes I feel great. You know sometimes I'm having so much fun I can't even like. Hold of myself and just laughter and excitement and I'm not suffering in those moments. How do you define compassion so to find compassion? When I was studying in the laboratory had to find it in an emotional way. It was a specific state. It was the experience that you have when you encounter suffering can be in person or even in your mind, you think about some suffering, and you feel the urge, and you have an intention to do something about it to help to alleviate the suffering that you encounter. That's the experience of compassion as an emotion, so that separates it from empathy, which is yeah, misses the action. Yeah, I mean empathy, I think of as kind of necessary, but not sufficient for compassion, and but the is really more simple, and it is our ability to resonate with each other and our ability to understand the meaning of a another person's emotional expressions, but if If, you only have empathy. You have a lot of other paths. You can go down. That are not compassion, right? You can feel distressed yourself. You can feel Oh, I'm overwhelmed. There's I'm upset in in in being confronted with the suffering, you can kind of suppress any emotional experience that you have. That is sort of mirrored from another person and sort of look apathetic. Kind of Mandra down the road towards compassion, and that means you're not really thinking about yourself anymore, right? You're not focused on the potential for something to threaten you or the extent to which your physical experience is recognizable or familiar as your own pain or suffering, but you sorta channel whatever whatever feeling you have into activating your care, nurturance systems right you're. You're actually orienting yourself as a care provider as a nurture rather than sort of frenetically worried about the possibility that something could go wrong in in your own right.
Could Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms be Joe Biden's pick for vice president?
"There a sort of like a Midwest I candidate or someone you think could be a great vice president that people are talking about or one of the sort of Leicester name recognition folks I mean I guess a little bit more into the account of the last around I do think it's really odd to me that she is that talked about more because one of the people that like to come down but kisha that's not unusual lance bottoms from Atlanta and but I don't think she's a serious contender because of inaction she's the mayor right so yeah so I I don't I don't know if anyone has it been mentioned that Biden would would consider that's a interesting question but I I think you know it would be really interesting things he ends up kind of doing the McCain moves and coming up with someone who no one saw coming out man who people haven't really been talking about I I I yeah
Why San Francisco's Fillmore District Is No Longer the 'Harlem of the West'
"So we're delving into how a small neighborhood in San. Francisco became an epicenter for Jazz reporter. Bianca Taylor brings us the story. Like so much of San Francisco history, story of the fillmore can be traced back to the day. The city shook. After the earthquake pretty much, all of San Francisco relocated to the fillmore, simply because it was the closest place to downtown that survived relatively intact, the earthquake and subsequent fire Elizabeth Pepin Silva is a filmmaker and Co author of the Book Harlem of the West She grew up in San Francisco. When she was a teenager, she got a job working for music promoter Bill Graham at the Fillmore Auditorium. It's how she first started digging into the history of the neighborhood. Once downtown was rebuilt. The local fillmore neighborhoods merchants, association. Trying to figure out a way to keep people coming back to the neighborhood. It was decided that the film would be San. Francisco's entertainment center in one thousand nine, an amusement park called the fillmore shoots was built complete with a wooden roller coaster and ferris wheel and three years later the fillmore auditorium. Beer halls it was. It was really fun exciting place. It was place to go at fun. But it was mainly for white people. Yes San! Francisco was segregated. But in the fillmore, little bit different. The earthquake had damaged a lot of neighborhoods where people of color were allowed to live in the city, but the surviving fillmore district had. Real estate in a history of accepting immigrants so through the early nineteen hundreds up until the nineteen forties. You had Filipinos Mexicans African Americans. Russians Japanese Americans and Jewish people living next door to one another, and it was really became known as one of the most integrated neighborhoods west of the Mississippi. On December. Seventh Nineteen, forty one Japan like it's infamous access partners struck first and declared war afterwards. Then Pearl Harbor was bombed, and the country changed completely. Japanese Americans are forced into a concentration camps in and. Left this huge hole in the fillmore district. At the same time there was a push to recruit Americans from the Midwest to work the shipyards in San Francisco and Richmond than they were given a free train ticket and promised the job and they're like. Come on out, we need you. African Americans arriving in San Francisco moved into empty apartments. The Japanese Americans had been forced out of and between nineteen forty and nineteen fifty. The black population of San Francisco grew tenfold by Nineteen forty-five, some thirty thousand African Americans were living in the city with this surge in population, came in explosion in the fillmore of black owned businesses, nightclubs, restaurants, and bars like. Star I hung out about cities. Like Jackson, southern for Blue Mirror. Did Not more than hotel. And you can go out on Friday night and not come home till Sunday night, because there is so much to do, and so that's how the fillmore became Harlem of the West.

Tyler Thrasher: Being a Black Grower
"It's really nice to have you on the show. Tyler I've been full you sometime and dipping into your cost. The events of the past few weeks have somewhat crystallized in my mind. The fact that my show needs to be as diverse as possible, and so it prompted me to reach out to you and ask you to come on the ledge. What's it like being black in the? Realm of botany slash. Horta kept coach. Coaches slash plants at this very moment. What are you seeing that pleasing you? That's displeasing you in the world of of of plump man. You know I've never really been asked that. I mean I would say my experience as a grower and with plants. Is Different here in Oklahoma than it would be for say somebody on the West Coast at. One of the biggest things that comes to mind as I grow and collect CACTI, and succulents and one of the interesting observations I've made, is that a lot of people that growing collect can by and large be very conservative and historically here in the south in the Midwest. Those are always very very touchy demographics for me to be around as a black, American am. I have encountered handfuls of racist comments and remarks. Plenty of older white growers are surprised to see a black man coming up to their greenhouse. Even been told Oh man. There's not a whole lot of black people who grow CACTI and succulents. Those kinds of like seemingly seemingly innocent hand remarks at can make one. Very nervous when you're alone in a greenhouse with somebody in your just wondering, what are they going to say next? So that's been interesting is navigating. You know driving. An hour and a half out into the country to someone's greenhouse, then really hoping you don't see confederate flag or big trump sticker, which I have, and there have been plenty of times I've been very uncomfortable for the sake of looking at really cool plants, which is a sacrifice I'm willing to make, but. Other than that. There's a lot of diversity happening right now. Plant communities popping up online here and there and so the seems to be a lot of space. Online and in these forums and online groups in the plant community for people of Color, and for Glatt, growers, and also on the other hand I've seen a lot of racist remarks from people online because they have that Internet scream and there are a handful of growers that I've had to cut out of my circle or add to like you know a list like a blacklist. Of like people do not. These people are racist. Stuff that so. It is a little bit of give and take in as a black grower had to learn how to navigate that in know who to buy my plants from and who to support and vice versa. It's been interesting here because as as a white person in the UK. Navigating response to what's happened has been interesting My take has always been that. I mean and I found myself pointing the Meghan Markle of the royal family. The update you know the the bad thing to say to say nothing and I think that's what's been getting from. A lot of people on social media who into into planning on saying Oh. I can't say anything because I don't WanNa say something wrong and I don't really have a view and are those kind of. Co out site phrases a said was some kind of magic wall, but the. As if They they just want to talk about plants. And therefore they are able to just remain silent on this issue and that kind of frustrated me, but at the same time. You Know I. I've found it difficult to negotiate so i. do sympathize with them to some extent, but at the same time it's not hard to say black lives matter. That's not hunting to say. Black lives matter. That's not a that's not a stretch like we. Surely we understand enough and can see in a homeless been

Midwest marijuana industry could increase energy consumption
"Recreational Marijuana recently became legal and Illinois and Michigan, but for cannabis plants to thrive year round in the Midwest they must be grown indoors so as the industry expands is energy use could easily get well. Pretty high lading is one of the largest energy uses of indoor cultivation facility followed closely by heating and cooling and then dehumidification. Molly Graham. The Midwest Energy Efficiency Alliance says using a lot of energy is bad for the climate and business. We've seen that energy can make up a third or more of the operating costs of cannabis facility, which is huge. It's a huge operating
Summer Wildflowers With Carol Gracie
"I asked when we spoke I. Don't know a few years back upon the publication of your book spring wildflowers of the Northeast The sub pad on the cover of the new book. summer book as on the old one, says unnatural history and I'd like to know what that means. Tell people what that means. Well. It means looking beyond just the beauty of the flowers and learning about how they fit into the environment. And what their importance is to insects or birds or other animals? And sometimes to other plants as well. So, I like people to know how these plants work in the environment. What their what their roles are. You encourage us. I think in the tax in the preface of the book you encourage us when we're looking at Alzheimer's to almost act as a as a burder does when watching birds yeah. Yeah I do because it's not just checking off that you've seen a Canada Lily for example. Or you've seen. Have Sparrow. It's really observing what organism is doing. And there are still things to be learned about even our local wildflowers. That, have not been observed because people just think well, they're common. They've been here forever. Anything that is known about the must be must be written already. But yet if you just take the time and patience to sit there and watch, you could discover something new. And you'll discover something interesting. Fit Your your book in the title and Zeroes in on the northeast, but we should say where that is because it's not a small area, the northeast in terms of ripe. Thank you for doing that. I'm using the concept that was used in gleason and Cronquist, which is the manual for vascular plants of the Northeast and his concept of the north. East goes from southern Canada. Down along more or less than Mississippi River down to. Northern Missouri and across into Kentucky. And So it's a big area I've. Had People say oh I'm from Virginia I'm I'm sorry? I can't buy that book because it doesn't have any of my plants in. But these plans are awesome. Ranging and many of them are in the Midwest and in the. Northern part of the south as well. so for example one. That's in the book. I don't know how you managed to choose I. Mean because there's a lot of plants out there in that regional area that are bloom in the summer from early. To late. But you. You picked A. How many are there in the bucket their third year? Omni Arthur There are more there about thirty five, I, think. More than that, because in some chapters I cover many more than one species. Of Related Species for instance. Right, so for instance you chose Common Milkweed, and there are other milkweed Zvi chose common milkweed, and that is over a far wider range than what we just talked about. Right and that goes even beyond the. Northeast Important! For many reasons, I'm sure all of your listeners are familiar with the milkweed monarch story, but it has many other interactions with other insects in particular. Right make it fascinating to me. So. Let's talk a little bit about that. The species is so it's a sleepiest. Dhia Syria which may sound surprising because it indicates that it comes from Syria. But in fact, that goes back to a mistake that was made back in the sixteen hundreds. When this plant was first brought back to European. To describe. And they it as being the same as a plant that had been discovered in Syria. And thus they lump it into that same species, which is opossums, Syriac Him And, when lineas realized that it was a different. Genus that it was far different from a possum. He'd put it into a different genus asleep, but by the rules of botanical nomenclature he had to keep the the second part of the name, the specific epithet.
Hazelnuts could be a climate-friendly crop for the Midwest
"Many people enjoy hazelnuts and chocolate spreads your as a snack and more fall in love with the flavor. The Global Hazel nut market is expected to double this decade. Keith Keeley of the Savannah. Institute wants the American Midwest to help meet the rising demand. He says growing hazelnuts on a large scale instead of soy could help farmers and the climate. Like. Soy hazelnuts can be a source of oil and protein, but they do not need planting and plowing each year. hazelnuts represent a crop where we can have long lived plants with roots deep in the soil, keeping that soil in place, adding more carbon to the soil, Kelly says growing them does not require eliminating annual crops. Farmers can plant the nuts and rose and raise other crops or livestock in between, and that also adds diversity to the landscape, which has benefits for spreading out farmers, risk, and for providing more habitat for wildlife. Expanding the Midwest Hazelnut Industry will take developing more well adapted plants, and it will also entail building new markets for the nuts such as for livestock feed, and even biodiesel, but Kelly says the potential is exciting. It's really an opportunity for farmland to become a sponge that soaks carbon
Los Angeles County Locals Make Up Bulk of Looting Arrests
"It is Hey so what what's going on over there what's the word on the street I know that you've been extremely busy and and by the way the work you're doing like collecting the information and not necessarily concentrating on on exactly what's going on the street but why it's going on you've been terrific on this body unbelievable thanks so much yet one of the things that we've been trying to figure out over the last few days is where is all the trouble coming from because clearly the bulk of the people who have been hitting the streets with the signs with the demonstrations with the protest had nothing to do with the mess that we've seen over a few nights over the weekend I mean the worst of it seem to be Saturday night in the LA's Fairfax district and then there was something of a repeat performance in Santa Monica and we saw some of it to go down to Long Beach and certainly some in the San Fernando Valley although it seems like and check me on this if I'm wrong but it seems like over the last couple of days the volume has been turned down on the unrest and and the looting and the arson right it seems much smaller and not quite as many people involved so we've been trying to find out who are the people that are responsible for the trouble and in some other cities not here in southern California but in the Midwest in back east there was word spreading that there were groups of outside agitators I think is the right buzz word who are coming into town and causing all the trouble we want to find out if that was happening here so we got hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of booking records from arrests that were made beginning last Thursday all the way through yesterday at midnight and lo and behold the people who've been locked up on the most serious charges not the people who get arrested for sitting in the street and volunteering to be arrested as an act of civil disobedience rather the people who are out to do harm allegedly and have been nabbed by police in the active perhaps looting or vandalism or arson who are they they're all from southern California for the most part they all have LA county addresses there are a few flyers from Fontana and maybe some from the antelope valley but for the most part from the corner of southern California we found I think five or six people who were from out of state I want one from Michigan and one from New York one from Chicago but it you know LA is a town that's full of people from out of town so it's hard to tell if those are folks who came in to LA to cause trouble or they just happen to be wrapped up in this so as a non it's not mostly outside agitators then you're saying it's mostly southern Californians granted we don't know who everybody is this out on the street but all of this small slice of the people who were arrested on the most serious charges felonies here not good no not little stuff they're predominantly from southern California and for one reason or another most of them are already out of jail in fact most of them were out of jail within twelve hours of being arrested we've been looking into that as well hi you have the number of people being rearrested none that's that's one of the other interesting things that as we look through the records beginning Thursday night again through midnight last night we got all the names we put the names in a huge spreadsheet and alphabetize them looking for repeat offenders and at least as far as the felony cases go we didn't see any wow granted that's a again a small fraction of the people that were involved because not everybody that was out looting in doing terrible things got arrested it's only a fraction of them they did on top of that it's a a fraction of all of the people who got locked up the numbers were hearing pretty staggering between Thursday and today it is well over two thousand people that have been through the booking process most of them again on those low level charges for violating the curfew order or failing to disperse when police declare a particular demonstration and unlawful gathering that's going to be the hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of those hundreds there's you know maybe a few hundred that were booked on suspicion of felonies so that's the group that we're looking at and then trying to extract out some information that tells us more about what the heck's
Madison Keys on Kindness in Competition
"Everyone John Wartime here is. This week's sports illustrated podcast this week. Talk With Madison Keys. Who apart from being a top player is also the front person for kindest wins which is her initiative and has been for several years which is a very different type of sports philanthropy. This one is basically aimed at making people nicer We're all four. It and Madison is always lovely to To visit with and so here without further ADO is Madison keys. How are you how you doing? I'm good how're hill? I'm alright I got all excited because I saw your press release said Rock Island but that we're going to talk mid West Midwest but you're in Florida right. I am currently in Florida. My mom is in rocket. How have you been have you been? Have you been experiencing this crazy detention? It's been it's been a big change of pace for me. Obviously not being used to being homeless often. But I've been keeping pretty busy and we'd have really nice weather in Florida. We've been lucky to have lots of sunshine in all of that. So just try to keep myself preoccupied. It's your inner optimist. I like that however you can pacing a return to tennis. I mean do. Do you have a imaginer gate in your head. When we're you're going to get back out there. I am trying to stay optimistic. I hope it's sooner rather than later but at the same time. I think I'm trying to not get too far ahead of myself in. Just kind of stay in the moment Hopefully soon I would love to play some tennis this year. So we're back as quickly as can be. It seems clear when you do come back. Stay films probably aren't going to be a big part of this. What are you what do you do that will be like? I think it'll be incredibly hard. I don't think any of us have really experienced being in you know big stadiums or big tournaments or anything like that in have emptiness and not really been there you know to entertain fans live. I think that's part of what we love doing is getting out in front of people and seeing them so excited during matches or postponing definitely going to be something that it would be probably a little bit of a learning curve and how to deal with that but at the same time when I get out there and compete and if we can you know get back on. Tv and people get to enjoy us. That that way I'd be more than happy to get back out there calling your own lives. I think that my opponent's would like if I called my own lines. I am one of the most generous. I'm so calling live but my coach typically when they're standing behind me like that was so far out really doesn't that it was like at least on the Lai at that is to me. That is a great transition to kindness. Wins may twenty. Second is kindness Wednesday. What what does that? I know what that means but what does what does this mean to you. I am incredibly excited about it. It means the world to me that it's a new venture for US obviously branching off of fearlessly girl and now becoming kindness wins and having a little bit of a broader mission but to be able to have kindness. Wednesday is something I really excited about and I think especially in a time right now when a lot of us are a bit more on edge and kind of just looking for some positive things in the world to make a smile. I'm really hoping that kindness Wednesday can be one of those
"Rogue Secretary of State" Jocelyn Benson
"In two thousand eighteen Jocelyn Benson was elected as secretary of state in Michigan. It was part of a historic sweep. Where women were also elected to the governorship and to the Attorney General's office then the corona virus hit and Donald Trump went on the warpath personally attacking governor. Whitmer as she fought to get her citizens access to needed medical equipment. Well now he's also attack. Jocelyn calling her a rogue secretary of state for her plan to make sure all Michigan voters can apply to get an absentee ballot. This fall keeping them safe from the virus and ensuring everyone has a chance to vote. Jocelyn joined us to talk about the monumental importance of voting rights in the age of trump and the corona virus. This year we saw the. You're the woman. Two Point Gretchen. Whitmer Dana Nessel Jocelyn Benson Debbie Stamina and the list goes secretary of state of the Great State of Michigan. Four four my duties to invest in my abilities regard. Help me guys. The Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson says. She sees nothing wrong with paper ballots. Secretary of state says the voter absentee ballot. Applications are great way for voters to vote in coming elections without risking their. How ahead of a planned visit to Michigan Tomorrow? President trump is targeting the leaders of the state on twitter president trump on Wednesday threatened to withhold federal funding to Michigan after the state announced that all of the states registered. Voters would receive applications for absentee ballots in the mail this year. Benton Secretary of State of Michigan on fighting every day to ensure that every voice is heard and every vote is counted. Sorry not sorry first of all. Thank you so much for doing this. I really really appreciate it. It's interesting because you have a job that I don't think a lot of people fully grasp what you do as secretary of State in Michigan. You're responsible for overseeing elections. But can you give my listeners? Really an overview of what that entails. And just broadly what? The job secretaryastate position in most states overseas democracy and that means everything from money in politics and regulating promoting disclosure of bat to the actual act of casting a ballot and making sure those votes are counted accurately protecting the security of the process. Anything that goes into ensuring that our democracy runs well flows lows through each state secretary of State and from your perspective. What is the biggest threat to our democracy? And you can do that. Broadly but you can also do that in Michigan. Well Yeah I always say that. A healthy democracy requires an engaged. An informed electorate and so in that way biggest threat is disengaged and misinformed electorate. I think you need both. You need everyone. Voting particular especially systems of underrepresented communities whose voices has historically been at the table and decisions. That are made them. But you also need to to be informed about all the aspects of an issue that they can make independent decisions about what's best for them. We're having our communities so to me really. You need people. Running the system secretaries of state and we need elected representatives who all kind of flow into that any neighbouring and encourage engagement and Commission. Of course the media as well but if you poke short on either of those two metrics those two pieces than democracy is threatened and. I think that's some of what we are seeing today where you have in some cases. Low turnout or disengagement or feeling of apathy or. My vote doesn't matter. My voice doesn't matter which is the exact opposite of which real and democracy or people not having access to accurate information about the decisions that are being made note decision makers that are making them can hold them accountable. We here and we've heard a lot about Michigan this cycle. So what makes it so important in this election besides the Electoral College? And how did it become a battleground? These chicken is a collection of voters that really reflects the entire country in many ways certainly in the Midwest and you've got a very diverse population we've got the largest concentrations for example Arab American voters in the country. We've got strong urban areas with unique stories and history like Detroit and Flint and high levels of communities of color growing Tino population and then a lot of the state is very rural. And so the racial demographics. The economic demographics -cation you have also right next to Detroit. One of the wealthiest per capita community in the country and they got in some ways integregation and many of the problems that afflict and having the country historically are reflected in Michigan. There's a great thing I saw when I personally hear when Michigan accuses the whole country gets a cold that in some ways is a bellwether state. Her a lot of different things is that because of the people because of history because of the community that can indicate how rest of the country like feeling going and attention on our state certainly over the past ten years when it comes to presidential elections. Really underscored that.

"Congresswoman Ilhan Omar Maher. who won Minnesota's majority white fifth Congressional district by over one hundred ninety? Three thousand votes was part of that choir. We had trump and the Republicans republicans coming into Minnesota talking about their politics of of hate and it was really important for us to make sure sure that we were leading furiously that we were leading with love and compassion to come together to say when you say right. Refugees aren't welcome in Minnesota Soda. When you say you know we can't take care of Our most vulnerable ones were going to say the opposite. We're going to say here. In Minnesota all refugees are welcome and will be elevated to represent us in Congress that we are going to lead with the politics of joy. We're GONNA make sure that we are being led by our faith and of compassion and that we are going to nick sure that we are never allowing fear into deter us because we're stronger than that a not in her colleagues are now working to promote the race class narrative all across the Midwest for twenty twenty in states like Michigan Again Ohio Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. There are also exploring how to most effectively frame certain issues like climate change and women's rights and criminal justice just reform and by the way. This work doesn't need to be limited to the Mid West is a not explains. The twenty. Eighteen election wins helped along by messaging in using the race. Class narrative will be on Minnesota demonstrating that a message of multiracial economic populism resonates everywhere. I mean so first of all. Aw empirically yes it works across places even in the south. I get that question a lot. So that's why answering it that way and we also know in the the last cycle that even though are sort of most creative and concerted campaign was in Minnesota. We use the race class narrative to incredible wins in Nevada and Colorado and Florida. We did a lot of great things. Last Cycle In many cases using the race cost narrative to really incredible affect both mobilization and persuasion the mobilization realisation pieces. Important like we've heard throughout this season any winning strategy must inspire excite and turn out the Democratic Base especially young people people people of color and that's very true in the mid West I think the Democratic Party discounts the numbers of minority voters that live in the Midwest again clear Malone I think the shorthand for the Midwest has become like white working class people and there are certainly many of those and they are certainly an important electoral blocked to win over. But you know there's huge minority populations not just in Cleveland and Detroit. But there also these mid size cities like youngstown has a lot of black people in it and anecdotally you. You hear people say I don't really feel spoken to people come to Youngstown and they wanNA talk to like the white working class but also there are other people who live here right yes plenty. It's an important point that sherrod Brown spoke about to Ohio. Like much of the Industrial Midwest may be everywhere in the country has a bunch of cities that thirty to sixty thousand people and each of those communities has a black community. Each of those almost all of them in a fairly sizable Each of them has some labor union. Remembers those numbers are declining but all of them are struggling and Republicans take for granted in Democrats. Write them off they really do get forgotten and again. They're just not all old white people. There's a lot of younger struggling people. There's a lot of working class people. There's a lot of people of color and we've got to talk to them. These are the challenges and the opportunities of being a big tent party back at the training. Alexa Howard the lead organizer for faith in Minnesota take the time to hammer home this point. It's almost like our future is a party and everybody wants an invitation to it but if you feel like I'm not going to get an invitation and someone else is then you're mad about it but if we're like you all are invited like all of you whether White Black Brown than MINNESOTANS are like. Yeah cool that's great so it's scary. How much racial fear and division works? It's also really exciting. How much this other message works a message that it invites everyone? In centered on a set of collective solutions to our biggest challenges that plus the power of multiracial populism as a way to stitch h together the Democratic Party's very diverse and unwieldy coalition. It's certainly a start in our next and final episode. We'll talk about all the other pieces of a winning message and focus on the most effective ways to actually deliver that message to a distracted. Divided electorate in Twenty.

"There's one woman I talked to voted for trump and sixteen at for a green candidate in two thousand eighteen and she's voting against this time for sure again Ben Wilder and it was a reminder of how complicated people are they have all these different experiences. And you just come with assumptions you missed the complexity and the richness of it. I think that what we can do through grassroots activism. Right through our organizing is to make sure that folks are are thinking top of mind about the things that they were counting on trump to do that. He has failed to do the promises that he's broken so that they can decide ultimately that a Democrat would be more likely to do. I think that they're looking for For someone to change it affects their lives. Ben Was a longtime activist with move on Dot Org and move back home to run for chair of the Wisconsin. Democratic Party An election he won in June of two thousand Nineteen Benza progressive. Who understands the people in politics of the state where he grew up? And there's no one I'd rather have overseeing the party's twenty twenty strategy Adage in Wisconsin after twenty sixteen we did the deepest possible audit into what had gone wrong and one of the things that we did wrong with something that we could correct through the Democratic Party and organizing we've been organizing on the ground here since the spring of two thousand seventeen and we haven't stopped our ground game in two thousand eighteen. We knocked on something like twice as many doors in two thousand eighteen as we did at the Presidential Year Twenty Sixteen And we did it at half. The cost because volunteer energy was so intense and we built neighborhood teams teams. which is the Obama model are calculating? There are a lot of things that went right but one four thing was that people spend time talking to people in their communities about the election. And and our estimation is that that was well over the margin of victory. That governor efforts into the governor's mansion governor. Tony is the Democrat who finally defeated Scott Walker in two thousand eighteen eighteen. He won by just twenty nine thousand votes today. Bannon the Wisconsin Democratic Party trying to repeat their winning strategy for twenty twenty in the neighborhood team model. The job of an organizer is not to just get volunteers out on the streets. It's to build local leaders volunteer leaders to find people in their communities. Who WanNa step up and become organizers themselves and teach and coach and support them to build their own canvassing operations? Those neighborhood teams then run. The campuses often out of people's he's home. Sometimes out of coffee shops a really strong neighborhood team can do the entire operation. It's basically running. Its own field campaign in its own neighborhood and the messengers that they deploy our people who become very familiar with their their neighborhoods. So neighborhood teams are organizing in the sense of building. Power whether you win or lose that election you build capacity and that's what what we lost in two thousand sixteen but we have been building back intensively everyday. Ever since Tony Wasn't the only Democrat elected to statewide office in two thousand eighteen senator. Tammy Baldwin who you heard from earlier was reelected and she received some help in doing so from a familiar resource women. Women led resistance groups. The organic it was bringing up from the grassroots in it was quite remarkable and impressive. And I I said we've got to find these folks my first field organizer. Her mission was to go. Take me to your leader. Under each of the new groups that have popped up. And we didn't come and say you know I'm here from Tammy Baldwin's campaign we I want you to all join sign up as volunteers. We said. What are you working on? What motivated you to organize? What issues are are you focused on? Let's team up because our fight is your fight and I think that was incredibly effective and brought new people people into the organizing. Fold and you know when you look at the results in eighteen and the counties that I won counties is it trump one in sixteen that neighbor-to-neighbor engagement made a huge huge difference. Now as you listen to Senator Senator Baldwin talk about the seventeen trump counties that she one on the way to a massive eleven point victory. You should know that. She's not some moderate centrist Democrat. tammy Baldwin one Wisconsin Sean. mcelwee of data for progress is imported. You just discuss. How definitively she wisconsin at a time? When we WANNA governor's I race by less than a point? She won Wisconsin so definitively that you can cut out the entire sort of Madison Wisconsin county the entire sort of Bourbon base And she still wins that state And she's been a longtime supporter single. Payer she's a lesbian. She sports putting workers on the boards. It's of companies fall on worker ownership that means production. But she's she's not as best. I can tell seen seen by the people of Wisconsin to be extremely radical. Ben Winkler has been taking note of all this and he offers some strategic wisdom. Considering the composition of the Wisconsin Electric and twenty sixteen eighteen fifty seven percent of those concert. Electorate was white voters. Who hadn't gone to college and there are hundreds of thousands more who could easily vote in two thousand twenty? They keeping for Democrats is not to assume anything about anybody to talk to everybody. I think we have to have a plan to be able to communicate with every part of the electorate especially in states. Where it's GONNA come down to potentially tens of thousands or even just a few thousand votes and I think Democrats forget that at our peril? We can't choose between mobilization and persuasion persuasion. We have to do both and we have to both in every geography in every language every community. If we're going to have a shot of winning mobilization and MM persuasion we have to do both everywhere okay. So what's the message that excites inspires all those different demographic groups.

Make them out to be. It's true that a lot of them may be a lost cause for Democrats but the people I sat down with outside of Milwaukee are clearly gettable. They're disappointed with trump and tend to agree with Democrats on a host of important issues. Even if they don't have a lot of love for the Party itself the question is how do we persuade these voters to vote Democrat in twenty twenty without sacrificing our principles or changing our policies one candidate who successfully answered this question. Is Senator Sherrod Brown he. He won reelection in Ohio in two thousand eighteen by three hundred thousand votes in the same year. Ohio's Democratic candidate for Governor Richard Cordray lost lost by one hundred sixty four thousand votes. So what was the difference. I mean I always say this like politics is Kinda Fair. monal clear Malone senior political writer at five thirty eight. They like what they like. It's like dating and love and cordray versus Brown. I think you get different vibes from those guys and shared shared Brown. Has You know he has a schtick that worked for him. Sherrod Brown speaks Ohio right. He speaks trade protectionism and he speaks speaks the language of like the Chevy Cruz and he you know he incorporates all that stuff.

"One of the things we learned about the Obama. Ah Trump voters was just huge. Frustration with Washington Wisconsin. Senator Tammy Baldwin. A lot of with them were looking for change looking for someone in trump who was viewed as separate from that mess they see when they look at Washington. DC So change and Certainly in his rhetoric I think that some folks folks felt that he got them. Dow It hasn't proven true. You know whether that's people seeing in their pocket book the cost of lifesaving prescription drugs going up and up and they don't see Congress taking them on or they watch the tax legislation more recently and say this is a giveaway to the wealthiest and the most powerful corporations. What do you think about the president's trade policy the trade war wearing with China right now so the company that I worked for We have have a lot of international suppliers and everybody is really nervous right now to the extent of the sixty thousand employees that we have we had to make a global eight percent headcount reduction and because nobody wants to buy sell than.

Because that's still to me is going to be the person who wins. Wisconsin is the person that wins just about all of the a political scientists analysts and strategists. I spoke to including Feta Scotch. Poll in any Walter. Who you just heard from said something like this about the importance of Wisconsin in twenty twenty it make sense of the three blue states? That trump flipped in two thousand sixteen Wisconsin. Looks like the toughest for Democrats to win back mainly mainly because it's a bit more rural than Michigan or Pennsylvania in the end Hilary Lost Wisconsin by just under twenty three thousand votes. But that's a big difference. Difference from the two hundred thousand votes. Obama won by in twenty twelve. So what happened. Well the explanation you've probably heard is that Hillary didn't even visit is at the state which is true but Russ Feingold the Democratic Senate candidate in two thousand sixteen spent the entire campaign in Wisconsin. A state he had won three times and he did even worse than Hillary. The Truth is Democrats up and down. The ballot lost in several Midwestern states for similar reasons lower turnout and urban communities increased turnout in rural communities and lots of Obama voters who cast their ballot for Donald Trump. And that's who I want to talk about here. If you're rolling your eyes right now I get the pundit class is overly obsessed with Obama trump voters and doesn't unfocused nearly enough on the millions of Obama voters who stayed home in two thousand sixteen voters. Who are disproportionately young black and Brown? Basically the people we talked about in the last episode. But you don't have to believe the pundits to understand the importance of Obama trump voters. You just have to believe in math in a close election in states like Wisconsin or Michigan or Ohio winning back just some portion of these voters could design the entire election. In fact. That's exactly what Democrats did in two thousand eighteen. And I wanted to find out how. Hello everyone I'm John. Thank you for doing this so much. Thank you for For taking the time firm in Western focus group. I took a trip to Milwaukee to talk to very specific and gettable group of swing voters people. Who voted for Obama voted for trump and then voted for Democrats in two thousand eighteen? I started off by asking the participants. How politics makes them fuel right now? Sad disenchanted. I looked at the last election in any way down but I voted for trump. Because he was the lesser of two evils. Neither candidate was a good candidate to me I think some of them and all of them had good ideas but just none of them stood for enough of what I believed in that was comfortable voting. That that way I think that's about August. Say at this point I frequently feel like when it comes to presidential election. Never like really Gung Ho about either one. I don't know I can't tell you ever felt super confident in my decision that I've made and or Ben Super impressed by anyone one of the things that we keep finding at this intense cynicism about politicians. That's been winkler. Lower Chair of the Wisconsin Democratic Party. You know they will say and do anything to get elected and I may forget all about narrative and you hear that. A lot of places in Wisconsin and I think a lot of times folks who swing back and forth they wanna believe but faced are having a place profound disbelief I watched the Democrat Democratic nomination debates came we know in less than when I started. You know. He's I don't know how that's possible. But that's frustrating so I'd say frustrated did and confused. I think that they just are bashing too much third stirred focusing on getting the country in a better situation don't always spent spent so much time on the TV. Or whatever you in the news programs and everything just bashing bashing bashing Who Do you think? The Democratic Party fights for. Yeah Yeah Democratic. Party Yeah Party let me let me ask it this way. A lot of you have said that At some point you voted for Democrats when you have voted for Democratic candidates. What are the reasons that you voted Democratic Change openness to different groups of people? Open this to everybody being able to to coexist okay. Give them a chance and see see what he can do. What are the reasons? You voted in the midterms if you voted in the midterms and what are the reasons. You voted for the candidates. You did in those rices. He's I wanted a change with our governor. You wanted to change. Yeah he just Walker. He just didn't seem like he he was doing doing anything for us. So those Obama trump voters a lot of them voted for Obama. Two thousand eight because does he was new and he was he was not John McCain Clear Malone senior political writer at five thirty eight he was inspiring people wanted to vote for the first first black president and then they voted for trump in two thousand sixteen because he was certainly a change maker right. I think that there is always a sliver of the vote or a segment of the vote. That just likes to vote for change. I coached coach Little League and entered it in the inner city. Marquis and every everybody down there had an obama shirt or a hat. And and it's like okay. Let's go let's go for it. You know I voted for him because he was not old in white anything to try to change something you know. Uh I asked these voters which issues they care about. And that's what I heard some real opportunities for Democrats but you know our healthcare is just. Yeah everything is so expensive not just health insurance but the hospitals just charge ridiculous arm and leg. That's who she she get monitored too. I got rushed to the hospital while they two months ago. They thought also having a stroke and literally the hospital. It was one one mile away from my house. My Bill is one thousand one hundred and eighty dollars for one mile a one mile trip. That's should that's just ambulance charge. And that's not all the cat. Scans Moore is and all that stuff but I mean. I'm really with the legalization Sean Marijuana for medical use because I'm on a lot of medications and that one substance can replace all these other substances that I just I don't really realize what a steak against my main concern like really concern about is gun control and they'd needs to get under control. Don't like I'm scared about sending my kids to school and not seen them again like. I don't want that feeling. That should should not be happy. I don't know if it's at the forefront front but The student loan situation is certainly concerning. I've been out of school over twenty years and I still have tens of thousands of dollars that I owe and I've I been paying it the entire time people issues concern about the retirement 'cause like with trump. I'm amount minus. I voted for trump to Because of some stuff that he said I agreed on and it turned out to be all eyes and while he's he's focusing more on this money situation about building the wall by McNamara her Mexico that he's taking the the money from somewhere and like I have like thirty some years before retirement. Where what's GonNa Happen then like do I have to work until I'm like ninety in years old now Basically what. I'm worried about this. These voters didn't just sound like Democrats on on certain policy issues. Most of them are critical of trump to. They said they voted for change. But is that last respondent just said it turned out to be all lies. She wasn't the only one who was disappointed. With the president. We conducted this focus group several weeks before trump lead us to the brink of war with Iran but already these voters others were worried about. Trump's steadiness on the world stage. I mean I voted for him. I'll be honest But I'm really concerned about where we're headed the next a couple of years. If he's still around. I think it's a laughing stock in in a around the world. I don't think he can be held accountable. I think he's Aligarh Key backtracks on a lot of things he says and I just think that he's the I think. He's burning bridges like with North Korea. Things like that and I don't know what's going on in Ukraine And you never know when you're going to need your allies and if you burn those bridges and we don't have them then what happens other opinions of trump. This is a joke. I just I can't believe they let him tweet all the time. What about other folks? Who has he been a better or worse president than you thought it was pleasantly? I surprised I'm in the middle on Kevin Way. I think I think he choosing I think he kept a lot of people working so I think that's that part is good. I think his self representation. He's an Ascom other opinions of Donald Trump joke. Joke Carol Well there's when when President says I'm going to do this or do it's not that that's involved in trying to make something work and if it doesn't work it has for years or whatever it doesn't always mean that he is all at fault at that but if I'm going to push a rock up a hill I'm GonNa push this rock up the hill and I'm not saying and I'm staying in at the bottom of the hill for years later in the rock is still all sitting next to me and I never tried to push it up the hill when there's no indication that the rock was ever going to go up the hill to this point. They lied not pushing.

BPA trademarks copyrighted works and other intellectual property rights are used with permission of the MLB Mendoza lie with Sunday Night Baseball's Jessica Mendoza in baseball this week we will be in Cleveland for the PHILLIES in Cleveland Jess will be doing this week awesome counting down buster last Sunday night baseball game of the year got the wild card game in the AL and then postseasons here. It's Kinda works out nicely because the Indians might be in that wildcard game and we get to see him on the last Sunday the season but you're right. We're we're coming down to it but before we get to all that I'm going to do a cool thing on Saturday. I'm really excited about this. My daughter goes to college in Cleveland so I'm going to go to game with her and a couple of friends on Saturday Saturday and I was trying to figure out where to get tickets and in the ballpark there what would be the cool place and I'm like you know what I want to be near ear the section where the guy's playing the drum like that beat that goes on during the course ignored. I'm not GonNa do that again. Come on I feel like I feel like Matt Damon from goodwill hunting right bomb bomb bomb bomb so I'm kind of excited about that. They also have fireworks. Yeah works at night. If you were to pick out of lace yeah if you were to pick out a place where you'd like to see a game from any ballpark what would be Kinda cool. That's out at besides besides sitting behind home. Plate the obvious yeah I mean and you're not wanting to take the monster seats. You're not allowed to announce receipts well. I okay so there's to me. There's two spots. There's just the outfield at Wrigley and that the reason I say that is because I've never ben somewhere where I felt like I was in the game and a bunch of that is like the fans that are out there like I think this goes for both stadiums. I think those people that sit in the outfield and I don't WanNa be total stereotype but they tend to be the most fun. You know like they're cheaper. Seats like literally I went for my first game in Chicago with my parents. This is long time ago and people ended up buying shirts and drinks and there's like it's the first time where like I don't know there's something about the the atmosphere of the outfield in Chicago and I'm not it's not like I'm a cubs fan but I was that day with the fans out there in the outfield and being outfielder. I brought Oh my glove and just felt like I was in the game which to me is the best feeling you can have a game yeah and that's Kinda why I wanted to sit out the drums. I'm like shoot if you're going to see a ballgame in Cleveland and why not be you know close by that and see what that's like because I've always said watch games in the press box in Cleveland Cleveland and they actually behind there a lot of times. You keep the glass close and you can't really feel the drums so if I can't hear you on Sunday morning. You'll know why that might be the hearing was last week in between that and who you're. You're done a couple of weeks there. You go so we had America. We just got done our conference. Call for prep for Sunday night and I feel like that you stole my notes because I had this elaborate present- presentation about how yeah we talk talk about the Indians and excuse me we talk about the Yankees and all their injuries but take a look at the Indians and then you start a rattling off all the names yes actually. I don't know if I told you this but I have access to computer loose. Lisa gave me the password so I just Kinda go in there. Now I it's so true when you pull up all the guys that have been injured and I know we've had obviously a Lotta Yankee Games and that spend their storyline but I you know when you dive live in this game. You're just blown away by the fact that you know names. kipness snake went. Kluber Ramirez clovinger caress go uh-huh Salazar. I mean these are their injuries. I mean it's unbelievable. How the fact that they're still in contention. There still have a great shot shot at the postseason and yet they've been missing. I think all of their huge names throughout a vocal of the season so I I give Tito a ton of credit just as we gave Buni a ton of credit and managing especially a young pitching staff staff. It's really had to step in and we've got out and put go on Sunday to Kinda lead that conversation yeah. What is it about Tito. You'd think that that that appeals to players you know his personality. I would say authentic real and you know this buster. You'd hope is it. Managers would just know this by now that just letting players understand exactly what you're thinking no. Bs just this is how it is whether you WanNa hear it or not. I don't think anyone at Pitt it is is that more than Tito and there's Times. I'm almost like okay. TMI like too much information kill give you anything you WANNA know. He's not gonNA hold it back but I think for player. They know they know what he's thinking and if he's mad he's. GonNa let you know if he doesn't think something's right. He's GonNa put in place and I just think it creates a culture culture starting at the top that look you need to be the person that you you'd be a good teammate. You need to give the team all of the things that are cliche and you talk about but you also have someone that's going to get on your but if you don't and to me that's that's. Tito also enjoying the game she one hundred sixty two games. I don't think anyone it has more fun as a manager. Terry Francona no and as you were talking the image of him Trevor Bowers last moment on a field in a game and in Indiana and then Tito gives trevor a piece of his mind and then I think more happened when they went down into the runway after Tito. Gut done with that pitching change but you're right. He's going to be hundred percent real as I mentioned they're part of the three team. ael Wildcard Chase Red Sox sir very much on the fringe of that so we're not gonNA talk about them but to me when you look at Oakland and Tampa Bay and the Indians now and as you say eighty innings done a great job overcoming injuries so of the rays at one point losing Blake Snell Tyler glass now going down. Oakland looked so dangerous jess like as they come down. We've been talking about how boy if you the Yankees if you the Astros you want home field advantage so you're going for the best best record. You know what I don't know if it might actually turn out to be good if the number two seed because that means of Oakland advances you don't have to play the athletics who've had had success against both the Yankees and Astros this year well and they're sneaky that way. I think a lot of teams regardless unless honestly it is the Astros I was talking to. Aj hinch inch the manager of the Astros this week he was saying going into Oakland. is not a place that I you know I want to be and he talked about how tough every the game has been. You know they've lost. I think it's six of the nine against them the season and think about how the Astros are and everything that they've been able to do and how L. Healthy they've stayed with all their big dogs and you get a team like Oakland and when you break them down and look at their numbers they do have a lot of like big guys right but they're still sneaky because they don't have the same attention of the Garrett Kohl's and Justin verlander to like go to the Yankees Aaron Judge All the American League names that you consistently insistently here and I think that's a huge advantage for them. I think my only concern is how much with their bullpen and starting pitching they can go in a longer series as I feel like they are perfect for one game wild card. They're perfect for division series. I wonder how they would do and of course if they make a championship series series. That is a win for Oakland right this week's poll question who will be the next four hundred million dollar player. I was Mike Trout of course in the options is it. I threw out there. Were Cody. Bellinger mookie Betts Francisco Lin door Indian shortstop and wants Soto of those four. Who would you bet that is gonna be the next four hundred million dollar player well. I voted and I voted for Mookie Betts and noticed when I voted that was the bulk of the response responsive actually hate to be but it's hard enough. That's not him just coming off an MVP and being like well of course you know. He's the hottest player as of recently you last year winning what he did. It's just the fact that kind of player that he is the body that he has. I think to be able to withstand you know length. Thanks to know because if you're GONNA get four hundred million dollars it'd be someone's paying you for a decade basically and I think to be able to commit to someone that you does going to stay healthy when you look they're making whereas and Albert pools and you see the back end of these contracts and just really the question is is there can their body hold up you look at movie bets and the guys he's not a huge guy and as much as you could say like bigger muscles last longer. I just I see the way mookie moves the way he plays the game. I just feel like that. That's not only a great player but it's GonNa be a great player for very very long time and that's what gets you four hundred million dollars. It's not for the first five years for the entirety. The ten years yeah and you might turn out to be right. I voted for Francisco endure because he plays the premium position. The other other guys are outfielders cody bellinger might wind up at first base sometime but francisco indoor is an excellent defender at a premium position in just he just seems to keep getting better and better and better not only as a player but in terms of how he carries himself in the clubhouse. I remember when I was in the campus spring someone there told me hey you know we had so many guys leave who have been part of the leadership and he mentioned Michael Brantley other guys walking out the door and he said the big question. Russian is who's going to step up and be leader. This year and lend door was heard in spring training the beginning of the year but it's clear as a season is played out lindores. He's had a you mentioned. Tito deserves a lot of credit for how the Indians have been held together but other people told me lindores been great about that too because he's such a positive of influence on a day in and day basis so not only would it team that would be signing him beginning great shortstop a great offensive shortstop but also someone who's demonstrating that he can lead a team absolutely I mean you just get a smile and the first two seconds you talk to them and that I mean I feel like when I'm around him..

So if you four best so why wouldn't they be never I'm a Carolina the other night. I mean, if if that ball drops in and all of a sudden now, we've not lost our mind as much on Duke. And all of a sudden, we're losing a mind Carolina. I'm willing to lose my mind on dude because I'm not gonna lie to you Seth I don't know other than watching my own son played basketball junior reference. I have not. There. I like more than Zion Williamson cover, look, I I know zion's great. But I think North Carolina all year is not gotten the attention. They deserve. But they didn't close. Ruled by Louisville one east something is real that. Michigan. Like teams with young players that you have to give them time to mature. Yeah. He's Kobe white is really a good player. Not the end of the game the other day. Like, he just did my think he's getting a bad rap on that. I've watched that put you know, what trae young unbelievable play to get over the ball screen on that last play on the drag with me now, I'm not talking about that. I'm not talking that. Once I think good set as man up, sir. I'm talking about just the last three or four minutes the ball guy. Like, they ran that little back door post up play out of the box for for Cam Johnson. And they had Cam Johnson posted up. It'll us take one more dribbled down and he looked off two times in a row. He's got. He's got to say, look, we got go all wire perfectly. No, it's not bad. I mean, he's come a long way. I I love the speed Carolina plays with his joke. Highland Carolina's coming out of this. And I ain't Kobe writes a big big reason. And I think interesting game Utah state has won seventeen of eight. I like, you state stay this. I thought you hated barrel all year long. I don't wanna butcher's first name. So I'm just going to but on all on. On. I know Sam. All right. You had been huge on the vet. And yet the team in Nevada is great. And I know they they got a lot of old dudes out there that have been awhile, but Utah states the team now coming out of that mountain. We haven't gotten into that. We haven't yet. We'll get there. I'm talking about how. Testee can do they can pass the ball. No one has seen Utah state play with ridiculous spacing. They are a not a good. But a great passing him. Like they like a terrific passing team. They have shopped makers this kid who has been beaten Washington. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Yeah. I I'm not hiring washed who's watching the beaten. I can tell you who they haven't been not Oregon last two weeks. They've blow Nobile the only win against the field. They beat Oregon wants to lost him twice. I liked the Mike. I love hop. Yeah. And we had him on our bracket. Tala show us very nice to my wife when he was assistant at Syracuse. And my wife was at you are one of the all time homers because if someone is nice to your wife. Yeah. That's the key. But I do think Utah state's going to beat him because I did watch him the other night. And I was very impressed for asking does Kate.
