Unicorn Horn just popped up on your head and so like six months after I had like a a bitch food I guess you would say because I wanna be in a relationship and I am picky. my homeboy Siemian facebook live as you try for this and I was off work that day so I drove in Houston and went to the aquarium where they had auditions and the crazy thing is they thought it was like nine ladies everyone guy it might it might have been forty nine. One guy was crazy right and then I think I was only black guy there for good out. I sit out. There sounds like the best four four suit. I actually got on the Houston News at night because they thought I was a batch which is crazy. That's like legit girl girls also in their mom and dad's we're coming up to me like introducing their daughters to me. While I was auditioning for the show. You didn't even need not like that at all but but it was just a really crazy experience I mean I have my book with me until the story. It was gonna be a great day that day right so you can't tell the story yeah so I have. I think I told you guys has a have a disabled veteran license plates right so I can parking spots and I partnered won. The Aquarium was quite busy and Park Park there. I'm there pretty early and I guy drive by an event. He's like hey is someone like sitting there. I might have so I move out of this spot so the other guy can get parking spot right good. Karma people have good Karma and so we're doing that or whatever I go upstairs and doing the wheelchair. He's trying out for the show as well. It was the second time trying out some really cool buying together. We stayed there the whole time just talking crap about the girls and the guys they're just doing what people do and and he became my best friend so shout you broke you hear this. I completely forgot your name. I love you to Homie Long Story Short I got mad because I wanted to relationship in my home way. Six months later told me apply for this show. Oh guys see this. I used to live downtown in San Antonio and I worked my butt off as a financial adviser. I was rookie of the year crazy hard. I'm super ambitious and his grow a mode apartment complex used to have huntings Ashley. She's to have like Bachelor parties every Monday and I had never watched the show prior to that may to be on his end so she like made me go watch Swayne. She said I was going to be to be on the show she was the bachelor was so crazy to you. Shut up to Ashley what we we we see. Now we see now instill Z. Instill a rooting for I think it's a cool story. I love hearing how people got to the show you know. Some people submitted a video. Some people tried out four or five times. I remember my experience. When I went actually went to an audition to my co worker sign me up? There were people who had been there five six times. It's like American idol had traveled to different cities. It's like you know with athletes when hang up the cleats. It's almost like current like let the application go. You know it's it's a good thing you you went through the Houston auditions. They liked you. They sent you on through you went to Hollywood then you came on our TV screens. did you have any you didn't watch the show and I didn't either and I love talking to people who didn't watch the show because I feel like your expectations are different than the Superfan who comes on the show and there are a lot of them over your expect Kim debt was cam isn't camp from Austin Austin. Was your audition no you wasn't I mean I'm sure you would have seen him. He was probably standing up on a pledge wrapping talking to everybody he would've known everyone bio their social even on everything poor cam just to digress a bit the way that that called out Cam at the finale. I feel sorry for him. I thought Jeez like this guy can't win man okay so what were your expectations. When you came on to the show because you can watch it before so only you were my wife who I remember stepping out of the Limo and I saw Hannah out you really cute and so that was like a plus right to me? I didn't and watch golden season so I wasn't I was unsure who would be the Bachelorette. watch Colton season because I watch my expectations were just honestly to be myself. How a good time and if I find love found love okay so you did you know Hannah was going to be the bachelorette threat idea the night before because that was when she got the five guys come out on sage were Chris Chris Harrison and that's when candidate has a little rap thing got the Rose Anouar literally twenty hours prior That's I see I'm shocked that you knew her are you didn't know her until right before that's interesting. Thanks so you really were open and just ready one hundred meet someone which is refreshing you were. I guess I have to say a bachelor term here. You were there for the right reasons. You're and I think the INSTAGRAM when you're there for the right reasons things happen differently oh. I don't know if that's a good thing okay okay. I can take two different ways okay moving on. What was your experience like on the show away from Luke because we saw that we saw that play we all on the camera so say I want to know what the other side was like for you? I want to speak on that but one show to Luke love. You hope you get better but things outside of Luke honestly we're a great. It was a great group of guys outside of Luke and Hannah was is is Google has held. I love it She speaks her mind. I love everything about her. In that regard it was boring like when you're not gonNA date is heliborne imagine it with a bunch of dudes. I what did y'all do for fun on your off days because you're right. What a Lotta people don't see is that you see the dates right as as a viewer? UC Two two hours of filming. We've been filming an entire week and you only get out of the House on rose ceremonies or if you have a date so there's a lot of downtime you're in these great countries these beautiful cities you never been in before and you don't really get to go out and said so. What did y'all do for fun then? I'll tell you what we did so in which are the awed. You're probably more than we did. I just appre drink. do stupid stuff. Push ups pull ups on that stuff. That's definitely now overdid around pool talk to each other do a lot of interviews. There's a lot of that you know the crazy thing. Is You do all these What is it called a guy talk or girl talk season none of that crap aired and now I'm like why are you got me doing all these taff Italian I tyler seen idea great one megaton of Garrett and Hannah because I live thirty minutes from each it was Eddie? They should have made the credit. Although the shirts seen that y'all did at the piano was amazing. I'm glad that that made the credits and I could tell the camaraderie that you guys had on the season. who were you close to? I'm close a Lotta guys like mention. Tyler heated homey dust in earlier today. He's he's Army Dylan's my little brother Connor those are the ones that I hang out with and talk to the most Matteo. I wanted to go see him in Atlanta. Hey I'm pretty cool when everybody is the infamous group Chat Poppin. 'cause I know you gotTa grew and I'm the one that offer my android. Oh Yeah Yeah you're one of those. It's a I mean honestly they should kick you out very annoying. GNAWING with someone goes green. I might get the eleven because all my Mike. Can you please get iphone. Am I listen to the fans yeah. You need to pay attention to AH okay on your one on one. I WanNa talk about that because I said this earlier. We felt like we didn't see a lot aww you were you really nervous did we. Did we miss out on some conversation. I know you express hey. I'm nervous but it just seemed like a lot of nervous energy. Nah I definitely wasn't nervous. It was more of when I watched the Bachelorette back all I did was smile and I have so much more than a smile. I like really converse with people have great conversation. I feel I think the show just wanted me to these smile. They don't want you to look like the angry black man and they dancer Dame portrayed portray ally so I'm appreciative. Even though I definitely was going off on some people that deserve to share their good deny nine good Hannah definitely had conversations we there was no pauses in our dates at all and both are was great conversation throughout his fluid. They just want to show me smile for some reason well. It's better than a frown right no death. I'm frowning takes more. It takes more muscles to frown smile exactly so therefore the smile. I'm afraid I ever I'm definitely a you can say bitch. I've definitely have a resting bitch face low show uh-huh. Everybody knows that but I try to work on smiling because people tell me that I look angry so it's nice that even okay maybe they didn't show your full personality but at least they showed you smiling Meiling full personality. I'm extremely loud and hilarious and I wanNA scream right now. Just out of pure excitement enjoy that's. It's the entry into the podcast with you. Okay so you get sent home. We all saw all that and it was really hard to watch because you were like trust to impress y'all had had the day date before you poured your heart out to Hanna. Hannah and I remember even in the items you're saying I see her as my wife. Did you see it coming at all. No zero percent one one hundred percent that was going to be sent home because I I asked because I want you to expand on that. I asked because when I got sent home I knew it I I it was actually hugging sound and like hugging audio and the cameraman before the rose ceremony saying this was it like I knew I felt it in my bones and so I I guess I assume other people have that same experience so I'm curious where you're coming from Lewis Juice you ready for the Jews time. Can we like I bet so no I one hundred percent thought that Hannah was going to give me a rose would michelle doubt but for those crazy crazy extreme fanatics the suit I was exact same that I got out of the Limo in we I didn't know and for me myself that was like symbolism and I did that prior to knowing that none of the producers of that and so so from my end because I wanted to make sure and this is real. I don't want to take this no way nor anybody else hearing this. I haven't uh-huh woman home to a mom in forever and has been one woman in over a decade and I take that very seriously whether on TV or not being on TV and I wasn't sure if I was ready to take home that's fair and I one hundred percent thought I was gonNA say. I thought she was GonNa give me rose but I wasn't sure if I wanted to mom this. This is the beautiful Hannah was say hi Hamilton place but he is by the way to solve that oh no she yeah so. I thought that I was GonNa say I thought he was rose but for me myself and I shot the beyond say. I thought we would need to have a longer conversation for me to decide for myself because what people don't realize that this is a two way street I just reggie as you were the Bachelorette but your husband now he was a contestant but at the same time he had an opportunity leave as well and obviously he wanted you as you wanted wanted him and so for me. I'll that like that. That's why I was never nervous is a two way street from me. My heart has feelings well. I think it's interesting that you say and in and thank you for being honest and sharing that. I think it's fair fair for you to say you know if you were ready to bring her home because that's the other side of it. People don't talk about you know you watch this play. How how you lose some? Everybody wants a rose every single week but it is such a pivotal time when you have to take the lead to your home because it's a reality check. You're in this bubble this bachelor but will you are caught up in his feelings in these emotions because you have to talk about him all Damn Day every day and then you're GonNa step outside of that bubble and take them home where you know we talked about this earlier your family your friends are going to check you and bring Baxter reality and that's a scary thought and so. I'm glad that you speak on that because I think a lot of people need to realize how nerve racking it is for the person to accept the rose to bring them. I'm home you gotTa make sure that you're ready for that and I think over the uneven watch Colton season but there was a girl who did that on Colton season. She just felt like their relationship had progressed enough for her to bring him home. That's a serious thing so I like the set that he's been ice yeah. Nothing is Hannah definitely like her lighter but I just want to make sure that my family as well I think shows how much you liked her. You weren't just going to it wasn't a game to you and you're going to take her yeah. You weren't going to set her up for failure. You wanted it to be right and that shows your sincerity another good characteristic of the bachelor of bats. I'm just telling Y'all good characteristic all right Mike. I have so many more questions for you. We're going to take a quick break. I'm GonNa let you have a breather because I feel like I've been grilling you for a moment and we're gonna come right back rage. I gotta say we live in such an amazing time right now. allie seriously I couldn't agree with you more. We can even unlock our phones by just looking at them.

I'm back talking to the Mike Mike Johnson and we've been talking about his time on the Bachelorette and how he got here and just as journey through this whole Bachelorette journey but one question I wanna ask you because the way Hannah season ended. We've never seen anything like it before and I don't WanNa get too into it because it's we've talked about it so much but I I am curious as to I ask you this. Are you call with jet. Yes okay so I'm not going to get a lot out of you know you probably will say. Did you see see this coming. Oh I'm just because I can be cool so we're not going to be one not honest about the situation right so no none of us knew that jet had I someone back home like at all it was I mean when you see my eyes right now. I was like I was flabbergasted by had no idea I new Hanover GonNa choose jet though even for the moment I got even furthermore when I got home because I know Ellen Ellen and she was playing a game with her who she likes and she chose. What's his name from a star is born Bradley Cooper? She chose Henchoz Bradley Cooper. She likes guys that look like they haven't showered in a few days and that's jet and so it looks like he has a shower or does he smell like head. Just smells good. He smells good rough around the edges like that. I know it's just his style okay whereas tight jeans with the booze you know the nice little leather jacket thing got a little beer going in style. Where's The rain I mean I'm not? I'm not yeah he was out to me. I'm not I know. None of us knew that jade had a woman back home. seems the Great Gatsby. He's Hilarious is super funny. He's hilarious things. You don't get to see I mean we had jet on the show and of course it was more of a serious conversation so so we didn't get to talk to him about that but it's interesting to know. There's this other side of him now. Although it's sad to say that you will not make history being currently being the first black bachelor sorry Oh no we'll get into that but I want to say you did make history because to my knowledge and again I didn't watch the show before I was on it. You're the first contestant to where a do rag in. It all we have to talk about that do ranking analyst go stood up in class when I said this is the show ever seen on the show. I'm always be me always be one hundred to myself of they always have you know we're at home all day in a mansion. Why am I going to do very well? I'm only going to have on like y'all want us to be the reality TV so I'm going to show you reality. I appreciate it because I am and what you guys don't know little behind the scenes information. We're not allowed to wear sunglasses. We aren't allowed to wear hats. That's when I love to wear things really on our heads. So when I saw that you were able to wear the do rag I said wait a estate Mike you know I couldn't do this podcast without talking about the REC. I almost posted hosted on social media when it happened but I didn't it was it was great. I was a fan of it I Love Monterey I WANNA to get an paradise but before I get there. I do want to ask you a question because I felt like this was a question that was posed to me and it's sad to say I don't get a lot of opportunities -tunities to talk with other people in the franchise about it just because there aren't a lot of people in the franchise that look like us but being a person of color in this franchise. Do you fill like Oh. I guess I should ask you. What did it feel like to be a person of color in this franchise? Did you always feel that similar to the way you said when you went to the audition you were the only black male there Do you feel like your race was an issue on Hannah season. Do you feel like it's something that you had to talk about dot constantly. I'm very curious so when I found out there's a southern white girl girl from Alabama as Bachelorette House I wo- sent home now you. I know you WANNA say home down sucks but when Hanan I kissed for the first time as okay you know she might like the big lips and then from there it will be in the back of my mind. I will say you know could Hennessy herself bringing African American guy home to our parents and and now I know one hundred percent her parents love and adore me and so I respect them as well but that was something that was my mind not going to deny it. You know I was concerned about that but as far as the cast member goes the cast members go. I was like I don't really care. I didn't care about none of them. In that regard is cared about him Anna how she would feel and that sounds like I'm trying to be a good guy. That's just a truth out of I don't care about none of the guys and how they felt Mark Hanna and if she didn't if she could see pass rates than I was cool with that no I I I'm very curious and I love to talk about it mainly because I can but when I was on the Bachelor I didn't feel that way either when I got the first impression rose to be frank. I didn't know what that was because I didn't I didn't I didn't watch the show like that before but there were girls that came to me that said Oh a black person has never received the first impression rose so those things were in my mind when I made it as far as I did. I was told a black person's never made it this far so I didn't really feel it until until those monumental and of course being the Bachelor S I'm just very curious as to how it was for you I let's get into paradise. What the Hell did you decide to go to paradise? I still was single and still wanted to be in a relationship so water. Hell not so they twist your arm. You finally decide hi to go you day car. When you first arrived right? I do see how day card and you decide. It's take Kaelin it was so America doesn't see that I was it was a toss up between Sydney. Kaelin and Katie was my second option of who I wanted Nagourney Day with date even between Sydney Kaelin and then Katie I chose Kaelin overseas because Sydney is quiet and I felt like at the end of the day police have a fun time okay. Where did you guys have a good time? We had a great time to your date. Did you know that it wasn't going to go anywhere after that. I wanted to tell the Sydney Sydney even before going on the day Kaylin. I told me hey I'm going to stay with her but I still want to talk to you and so as soon as I got back next day I was talking talking to senior. I wanted to be with Sydney and she I think day with Dina saying day yeah so it worked out perfect what happened to Sydney. I mean you guys seem to be having fun and playful Long Beach. We really didn't get the end of your stories. What have I not first off to you? That's disrespectful but first off to the show like Bro. Come on you. GotTa like show what happened to the end of Sydney and yeah weird so tell us what happened. I broke doc it off with Sydney. I just felt as if I thought a couple of things one I feel like she didn't find me sexually attractive to our our connection just was not there whatsoever I think we both were trying and I think that's seen as a diamond when a diamond I mean that she is absolutely spectacular and very very hard to crack and that's what I mean by diamond and so all ruby as well but the diamond wasn't for me and so a broken things off with her and then I went to the to the wedding okay so it was before the wedding gosh we really didn't see we're all no so I mean you can kind of set the time line for us but I I'm glad you cleared that up up because I remember watching thinking what happened to Mike in Sydney. They just all of a sudden they just weren't that was weird. I broke it off with Sydney. It was it was respectful respectful and both sides whose mutual and I wanted a wedding and that's what I don't get to see. I was IMA zone. I was my Johnson to a T. Mike Dow's this was set represents San Antonio. I was just happy as can be. I just so just thrilled to be there. I literally forgot I was wearing a microphone I forgot was cameras was on I was having a wonderful time free. I was free yeah. I spoke to Angela. Do I spoke to Bibiana and I just had a wonderful time. It was first of all I love going to weddings because the reception and could you get the dancing. I just have a fun signed. Do the Bunny Hobby that listen when people ask me about my wedding. I'm like let me say about the reception wedding. I had a fantastic pence has to time at Christmas wedding shelter them. They're beautiful birds and then I went on a date with Angela so I've got a question for or you can answer for you. What do you say and I'm asking you this because people said it to me to? What do you say to the critics that say you don't like to date black women yeah that's crazy I would say literally my ex-girlfriend prior to being on America's phases of black women I come from a black woman who's strong beautiful my sister and my grandmother don't make me go off on your first off? I was on a show that the league was a white the girl so therefore who cares Mommy's always telling me follow your heart and then my aunts you know my aunts. They're the ones that want to date a black woman and then articles they she found what's up and that's just me being transparent but my homeboys always and my sister and my grandma always told me to follow my heart and was near and dear to me the crazy thing is if I were a data white girl and back to around from in Dallas and we certain places we will be looked at in Texas that is true but also true is. I don't care I absolutely love my black winning. When I auditioned to be the Bachelor I had a Microsoft Word spreadsheet that I printed out of course she did financial advisor? We're like that and I had three different categories of women and the first was the black woman that I am attracted to and I'm not going to later names and the second the second one was like mixed chicks or whatever learn or other category Pacific Islander Typing Auditorium at third chick the third category is the white girls and I mean I'm a man that has lived around the world living in Europe for five years and I love all people and I am attracted to who try the two. I have always said our marry a black woman but I'm not gonNA hold my breath. I I love you being honest about this and I ask you because again as as preface whole conversation I can talk to you about things that I can't really talk to every guest that comes through here because we have shared experiences and I got the same criticism because you come on TV and you're on the season of someone who's white as the Bachelorette ed. I have a whole slew of of men to choose from and the one I ended up with is Colombian so people automatically think you don't like your your last race and you are Lazarus people automatically think you don't like your own race and you know how it is your judge by America and then you just by Black America and they're the ones and they're the ones that usually lever come at you for not liking your own race and it's so I love you said my girlfriend prior to the show was black. They don't know your dating history for we're coming on the show and so I wanted to talk about that because I know you got that same criticism as well. Let's just no I absolutely adore my black woman mint and my black skin melon and I'll kiss all over you lady. You love women and there's nothing there's but there's there's nothing nothing wrong with that at all shape sizes personalities you. You're a lover of women. There's nothing wrong with that. You're single. I think we'll get into that later but yeah there's there's absolutely nothing wrong with. It and I think that your friends are right and telling you love who you love there. You said you always thought that she would marry a black woman. Actually always thought thought that I would marry a black man no and I and I put that to the side and just said I'm GonNa love who I love and it turned out to be Brian so you know I think that if you put those list to the side and those you know I have to do this and just open your heart to whatever we'd be surprised at what what comes through you know that there's little Ozzy Story. That's going viral right now. It's the little white Kunal Blackie and they run up to each other down. Yes when I was a child I owed and one of my best friends growing up his name's Colt Simon so call if you here's what's up homey he was a white kid now living in our neighborhood what he was like the White Qaeda had money and he was the only way key in our neighborhood and his parents had his driveway was submitted and they had a basketball goal and it was really cool and auto black guys come over there and it was never about race until he went to high school and those little keys I was talking about with a little white can little black run up so each other. They don't think about race I think about love and friendship and happiness right and then when we get older we just it happens it comes about you know when I was in Europe and I lived in Europe and I'll go on a date with a girl you know big deal I go on a date with sex is going to offer some which by the way a better day but if I were to go so I would have I grow and sex will be looked at differently versus if you go out everybody. I know. She has a husband okay but I get what you mean. It's yes. Yes people think that you're supposed to what I told you all about the document I got. Can I give some back some inside knowledge now now. You said that this is when you are intoxicated bathroom. We're going to get into that but some behind the scenes things that people don't know and that's what we promised to give you on. This podcast is that when you laren talks they do ask you.

WE'RE GONNA get into it at this point. We know that you weren't chosen to be the next bachelor. I'm still not over it but I wanNA know how you feel about it. So were you in talks to be the next bachelor. One hundred percent talks to be the next bachelor. I think a a lot of people wanNA know because people are upset right. You're not you're not the bachelor. People are rioting. I'm leading it but a lot of people don't even think that you were considered to be the bathroom so that's why I wanted to lead off with that question and pied anything else consider to be the Bachelorette because I was trying to be respectful of the crew Abacha world and I don't want to speak about it. Even when I went on TV I thought that was being extremely respectful in a gentleman of me to the bachelor world and Peter in it. I don't think Peter did those interviews and so he didn't have to go through that I one hundred percent one to be the bachelor reasons being because one two and find a wife to it was bigger than me and I wanted to represent for all people of Color and then also talking about people of color they need to have Asian Bachelor and you have Indian Bachelor and you have other people outside is black and white and so I want to speak on that as well but I did audition with the Bachelor and I one hundred percent did wants to be the bachelor. I think that's important for people to know to This isn't a an instance. Where are you offering? You turned it down. You wanted it and you didn't get it. So how did you feel when you found out you were not chosen to be the bachelor I found out in the trailers you know before you go on Bachelor in Paradise Reunion and I knew it all right now my head yes. I wanted to be the bachelor. Yes auditioned to be a bachelor. I went in there with the right. Intentions of WANNA find wanted to be true to myself. You might have seen Iraqi and come back. I had a list a word document of the type of woman. I wanted what I was scared. I wasn't scared of and I think ultimately it just came down to. They chose the right person for what they want and there's nothing wrong with that at all. When I I found out I was? I'm not gonNA I was sad. I was annoyed when I very first found out but then I think by the end of the night I wasn't annoyed no more because I was appreciative you've and thankful that they told me no right into their because now I can focus on myself and I'm just blessed because I know my wife and my Queen Mike this is a really really big of you and it makes me still want you to be the bachelor even more. I'm more of set this podcast uh-huh telling you don't you edit this out. I have upset and I just I. I hadn't even met you. You know. Most people don't know is that we have a mutual friend. My chimenti from college is one of your best friends so I could speak to your character outside of what I saw on the show and now I'm sitting here in front of you and I'm just I'm might shed a tear. I'm so upset that you're not the bachelor and this is what I have to say and I'll ask you this too because you've just been so open and honest honest and really respectful and how you're handling this whole process. This is nothing against Peter Peter on the show and a lot of times people will confuse. You said we had Peter on the show. Peter seems lovely straight lined vanilla but lovely and I it's not that I don't I think he'll make a great bachelor. I think that you know he'll he's very been higgins. Ask I think they'll surround him with an entertaining cast two masters his learn I I again so I'm saying all that to say it is not a knock against nothing against Peter About Peter being bastard. Do you think a good one. I think Peter is a look and deal with his five o'clock shadow. He has a a fun Super Fun job. His family's amazing his little brother. I know personally he's dope kid and when I say cost him only thirty one. I think I would have been more entertaining. I said it and I'M GONNA stick by my word yeah. I think you'd be entertaining to wait. What Oh oh he said? Peter has a as a fun job. I don't think he's had that job after the Bachelor I disagree. Peter is in love with being a pilot no no. I don't think it's up to him. Oh you know what I mean. I'm sure he'd get another job or something. I'm just saying his own plane he might maybe they'll let them take a sabbatical. I don't know it's hard. I think that's why a lot of times you see people on the show who have jobs or lack thereof of jobs because it's hard to ask your employer for time off so I'm not saying that as a knock appear I'm just saying you. It's going to be hard for him to be able to do. Both is what I'm saying. Now's a financial advisor. So therefore I have a boss can do say it again. you really answered my questions very well. I appreciate that I was trying to get messier anything but you were very matter of fact and I think it is what it is. I will ask you this are you. Are you disappointed with the lack of diversity on the show so that's one of the things I spoke about to the producers if I were to be the bachelor and I said that I wanted to be representative of America as far as the women that or be on the show if I were to be cast as a bachelor like I also feel that more people of color and I know Peter mom is of Latin descent but come on won't Peter's White all right. Let's be honest and so I'm not talking about things advantage. I'm talking about. I WANNA fool on Indian guy or full on Asian girl for some reason as I like Asian girls. I like Sydney She Beijing. I didn't know that about myself until oil paired is about all experience you love women. It's what you feel. I think that's great. Do you think that not getting the Bachelor is the best thing you never had right now about say right now 'cause I'm focused on his in the moment and so I know that if I were to be the bachelor it will come a lot more scrutiny into my personal life into my family's personal life into my sister and things of that nature and maybe as God's website is not the right time for you to be an spotlight and the whole point of going on the show is a fire person and so I wanna make sure that that's the president's I wanted to find my wife. I wonder if I'm Queen and so if I'm not on the Bachelor you know I've been blessed to be opened up to a plethora of people that know my face and so I may the woman still yeah. Let's talk about that. Let's talk about God's plan and the women that you've Been Open Up to meet Aka Demi Levato. Oh we gotta talk about it. Okay because Demi Levato is a fan of the show and I have not seen her this involved ever so spill the T. Swansea. I want to see you said to drake lines by the way you say why I'm upset. I'm a fan of a drake civility on amy okay. I'll ask you more pointed questions because I always answer. I would always answer questions. You've gotta ask them. Have you met yes and I have met in person. How many times we met we met more than once on? Let me just tell you who is not going to be on Peter Season Demi levato okay. None of those girls can even stand in the same room with Demi Levato so you you are already winning. Let me just tell you this Mike Johnson and give them a name. No no minimum okay Mike Johnson. How is she? I think she's amazing as and she's incredibly humble when she and her and I are together or have my God I'm saying is that don't say anything. That's going to mess up the relationship ship. 'cause I no not at all. I'm extremely respectful when denial together it's laughter and we talk about real shit like she's as a down to Earth woman and I respect you so much and she's really humbled really cool really fun down to Earth person and she's from Texas from sex her body too so that's cool okay. You sound well acquainted. It's my job to see through this. I will say that I have met Demi Lovato as she did not have this reaction to me. She's just be like. I don't even know if she knew I was on the bachelor. She took a picture with me and walked. He's an extremely sweet woman. No no she seems really sweet and Is there anything else that maybe you want to tell us. What is the status of your relationship with Demi? Demi Lovato must satisfy the relation with me and I are that we are two people exploring each other. I like it. I like it so what's next for you. My Johnson was next for me so I am really big into and I really care about self love and insecurities and so I'm I am working on something right now to help raise people's self love in lower their insecurities through a media platform. I love this and I'm GonNa tell you why this is so necessary. Sorry so we just did a podcast with Blake and it went so deep it had to be two parts and what I loved about that podcast is he was so open conformable. I mean you met Blake you saw the drama but he talked about the darker side of being in batter nation which a lot of people don't hit him up about it and and I really think that you guys should team up together and really help people through this because everybody wants to see the war on TV and you know people are Schilling or they're going to all these events but you know that lasts for most people six months and then the whole new crop of Bashar contestants come in and you're lucky if you can sustain it longer than that and and when you don't it's the dark side of things or if you have a bad experience and it plays out on a public platform like blake sted. It's the darker side of things I'm excited to hear that you're doing something positive and I think it can really reach and help a lot of people are completely. I've had family members and friends commit suicide and you know become hurt really bad by mental health and the people that are in the public eye that were once in the star now they're down at the bottom and so plays a a real toll on you and so you asked earlier about me and my personality have I let things go to my head. I tried to be even killers always because I am super grateful to be sitting here with you right now and I know that tomorrow it'd be gone so therefore my day ones I wanna make sure that they know that I love them. Care about them and that's the strongest thing that you can have is this your family and friends that are near and dear to you understand that everyone goes through something. My demons people say how do you smile you know through adversity and so I just WANNA use my platform for the good for the greater good wall still having fun and still being direct. You know Mike very powerful. Gosh Mike Johnson. I I have to say it is our loss that we don't have you as the Bachelor for season twenty four but I am glad that you have graced us with your presence on Hannah season even on Paradise. Even though I know you weren't a huge fan of that but you are a part of this bachelor family you're part of this franchise and I think that you're a really positive figure within it and so I I just WanNa thank you so much for coming on the podcast and I'm also excited because I feel like this is a question. I wanted to ask you to feel like a lot of people haven't had the opportunity to know you and you've really gone deep on this podcast and I think one of the things people would say about why you wouldn't make a bachelor is because you didn't open up origo. You didn't cry in certain instances and for all those people out there who said that take I hope you're listening to this podcast because you have opened up in a way and put yourself out. There have been very vulnerable very honest and really shown who you are and so I I mean like to all the haters out there by I want to speak on. La that thank thank you for this ridiculous. when I'M NOT GONNA call her name said I'm not going to be a good contender for the bachelor because I wasn't vulnerable enough and and ordinary cry for one where I come from when we talk about tears we let those tears out but I'm not GonNa let series out for the most frivolous things I I do cry. I am an emotional person. I am in touch with my emotional side but I'm not gonNa cry for something that you've seen fifteen other news Crawford Graf war and so that's just ridiculous to me. I I am extremely you. Ask Ask anybody that know me. Oh my God all needs to ask what's up and I'll tell you this. There are plenty of people who cry on that show and there's nothing behind those tears. It needs nothing. It doesn't mean that they'd be a goodly okay and I'm not gonNA name any names. Okay okay all right. I want to say thank you so much for coming on the podcast really do appreciate it. It was a long time coming and I wish you all the best. I'm excited to see what happens happens for you know for one. I'm not going to be here for six months or less. I know that's why me neither was Mike Johnson. Thank you so much for coming coming in today. I know you had to stay in. La An extra couple of days to make this work so we definitely appreciate it but I feel like you kind of wanted to do it anyway because this was a long time coming. I see see it on your face now so next week you guys do not forget we will have part two of the Blake interview. I promise this is one that you don't WanNa Miss. It'll go up Wednesday morning and it's worth the wait in the meantime.

Qna I guess while allegedly is speaking to Demi Levada before we speak to Mike Johnson. We gotTA pause here to say we're live from the planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. ooh What does Mike Johnson. Welcome to the PODCAST August. Thank you I want to there is a little bit of an elephant in the room and I think it is best to get it started right because here's the thing I want to preface right now by saying my co host thinks you are amazing she she let me this is this is my zone she. He is a huge. She's a huge fan of you. She loves you but there had been in just like nor dislike. This world happens there was trolls trolls that came out and said Hey Ashley doesn't like Mike and it kind of blew up into this thing. It offended you. Mike for some of the things Ashley has said in the past and I think before we get started aren't we can really trust each other here in this circle. We have to talk about it right. So if I fall backwards and don't look you got me I got you actually de Yeah from your perspective. What was said what was the context of what was said and what happened to make this whole thing is something I think that well first off? If I think when we do these like podcast all the recaps I do. I do have to criticize you know if I see something. Sometimes I have to like not criticize but it I can't just be butterflies and rainbows with every single thing that happens on the show or whether it's in real life what job Oh to be rainbows and butterflies that's true. He's the one that always takes the easy route and like he's like sure they said this but this and I'm like well sometimes be a little little bit harder. I was harder on Kaelin too and like I did the same thing in the podcast. I was like look I didn't have the burst the best first impression of her and then and I met her in real life well. I met her real life couple times but it was when we actually broke the silence that I was like This is a completely different person than I thought she was. I think with Mike I saw you on the show and you're like the warmest friendliest person and in the thirty seconds and it was like thirty seconds that I met you at the wedding. I felt like somebody introduced me to you is like the Bachelor beat reporter and I was like there were like this is actually a whole bunch of recap. She doesn't that and then I said yeah and everybody is loving you like literally. Nobody can think about things to say debut and the first thing he said to me. I don't care about any of that and I felt like I was kinda discredited. I felt like I was personally. I took a little bit of offense to that because it was almost like you're putting down what I do. I'm going off of what you're saying because I remember that I'm not saying that you're wrong but just going off. What what you're saying yeah? That's something I don't care if if someone were to say to me hey everyone thinks you're amazing. that's me saying I don't care that. Let's have a conversation so I think he took that completely out of context yeah okay and that's probably very true very true. What is it that you felt like you had an issue with me about now one? I think we are making a bigger than I think we are too. I do think it has to be talked about because he brought up every once in a while Ofek. I'M GONNA talk about watching the Bachelorette. I'm coming at you. Damn Shaima come to you and so from what people had told me my. DM's from what I thank you I think the same I think something crazy happened. I think that people like literally took me being like I didn't get the greatest first impression Russian and then people really flip hard core. I was like I met him for thirty seconds thirty seconds yeah exactly my point so from what you had said from this article I just read while sitting over there my Sharma facts right. You say you know I'll be. It was only like thirty seconds that we spoke but you didn't the best impression. He won't be the Bachelor Co stuff. We wouldn't be the bachelor some article just respite quote fair cool and my issue issue is at dam sure calling me. I just talked to me because I'm pretty damn good. Oh I know I'm GONNA learn this this weekend because we're going to have a lot more time and then I probably should never never even spoken on a first impression your mind I mean my first impression of being was damn. He's tall. He's going to do this guy so awkward. I WanNa talk to this guy. He's got big arms. Hey can you move out of the way for both I mean I never watched the show prior. Go for one that my happiest time while being on Bachelor Paradise was at the wedding yeah for Chris and Crystal and because I felt free and just was just loving life right within a cluster F it was and the more I thought about it the more I was like I was super overwhelmed. I feel like everybody was overwhelmed because we had no. Why do we are going into and it was not the appropriate time to make a judgment? I gotta ask you something though Yes. I want to hear your opinion on this. Here's a scenario was plano right. We've we've we've talked walk through this. We understand miscommunication. We understand that you know. Tabloids and rumors are GONNA get started. It's going to get blown up right. Here's where maybe I want you to help me understand understand. This is a deep topic of smiles coming out now to paint a picture for you. Ashley says something like Hey. Mike might not be the next bachelor. I didn't get a good first impression. Nothing about you. Personally really I mean yeah. You can ask her. Actually why do you think that and then all of a sudden here's what happens in this were hurt. She's called a racist. What do we what do you do with that like we go from? Hey maybe this person just isn't going to be the next bachelor to all of a sudden. She's a racist. That's a big jump an incredibly offensive too. I think both sides so I heard I heard I mean. I thought that was absolutely insane. How people would go from that to you? Oh I want to hear what he though because it. This isn't a one off thing I mean it's going to happen and later on the podcast. I WANNA talk about not being chosen next bachelor and how you feel about that and what what the show's going to do and and what is your response but this is it. We've talked to Rachel Lindsay about this before you are. You're blazing a trail and bachelor nation one that should be blaze ace but why then is this the conclusion to every criticism big or small so you have a couple of points one. I did see that people hit me on my dealings about that. I never knew of you in the past. Not saying nothing negative about you. Just have you know no baseball baseball right and I heard about that in response also because I don't know of Youtube Vida towards me yeah so people can say things but how much you the way you treated me at that point time. You intrigue me a racist at all. I'm saying on your if if you are. I don't think that you are of course you are so people have say that. I don't know your past right the way I feel about. What you said been quite honestly? It shouldn't even be in the question the reason I feel like it isn't questions because there is it extremely underrepresented underrepresented people of color within his nation. That's just facts right and so therefore when I'm in a room with like twenty beautiful people I'm the only black that guy in the room that may come up more times than if it were if we were twenty black guys and then you had the only why that comes up more so because that's it's an easy thing to talk about. Oh bins the only why right uh-huh maybe that maybe the case may not be the case but then also in batch nation. I don't know the demographics of how everything works out but there I mean I would like to see that one day yeah in regards to I'm just GonNa talk on ours being the bachelor because of my race I one hundred percent will say that yes peter is half Cuban. He's white right. I'm GonNa sit and and I think his family is beautiful but there's that mean going around. I mean there's a picture going around with all Bachelors Right. I'll twenty four bachelor's yeah. They could've made me more white right yeah. Hey let's be honest really white right fluorescent looking at this President Obama Llama prisoner woman if there was a diverse cast that represented America as far as the bachelor. I don't think racism would ever be in question but since all twenty four batteries have been predominantly white then I feel like it is fair thing to bring up. Let's dig one step deeper then because I know actually wants to follow up here a little bit mark no no. I'm glad you did not like there's no apology because I want to step one step deeper then here's the question Mike so Rachel Lindsay. I was one of the Best Bachelorettes we've ever had just as is in terms of season of drama all that stuff she has about half the followers of most Bachelorette so calling it out well so my question to you Mike is if we look at the list and we look at the pictures and we say yeah that needs as the change then. How does it change when nobody nobody comes out for support? There's a problem there way beyond the show so my point is yes. Ask The show could do something to fix that right could name you the bachelor but even beyond the show the viewers the viewers don't respond which makes me go. There's there's a bigger issue here than what any of US WANNA point out. There's three things you hit on one like I said back demographics. I think that people gravitate gravitate toward they are used to right so I've asked tons of times. I was an air force being received and I said to my wife friends. Can you imagine the only way guy in an airport. Can you imagine a bit. Can you imagine that actually that's happening to me tons of time talking about thousands of people in an airport and I'm the the only black guy right if I was if I saw another black person gravitate towards that person I is that racist or is that just relate ability ability right and and so therefore I'm not gonNA call our fans at all if the majority of batch nation fans are Caucasian so therefore for the ones that may not be open into it. They're going to gravitate to what's natural for them and so I always think about the airport scenario because most people in here probably not felt that I'll call you all right. It's a crazy thing. There's twenty people in the room by the way that's a serious talking about your black yeah right so so yeah so like for the most part like we're looking at a room. There's people watching these people sit around that scenario sitting in here planet Hollywood and it's like if I were to go to if the Bachelor Ambassador Inbound Paradise was not on ABC on bt obvious right now right you may not be. I think you're I was telling a second. I think I was saying behind your back and I'm glad it's a negative. I think that it's just simply what we gravitate towards naturally. I don't think there's nothing wrong with that. I am so in love with the people that are open to different things right and this goes so far beyond the bachelor but at the same time we damn should've had about a black bachelor and I'm not saying I never should've been me. I think I'm a phenomenal said yesterday and my Momma tell me and I know to be true and I don't. I think that ABC is wrong for not choosing me truly don't feel that way. I think they chose the right person for what they want it right and I will say this to my home. Is I never say this publicly. I said that I felt that. If I were to be the bachelor the ratings would go down a little bit but in the next year they will go up even more because they would have captured new audience with me and he didn't have their own audience as well yeah and so I don't I'm not gonNA. I'M GONNA disagree with you but I don't think it's on the fans do that. I think as media rerun America yeah. I think that the stands were more supportive Mike Than Peter I really do. I think this came down to college versus the popular vote I it is a perfect similarly for the if we if we did a nationwide popular vote which I'm still four times confused no it wouldn't. I don't think it would have been tyler in your mind for sexiest man alive sure yeah okay but I think that if it were just between you and Peter her for Bachelor I think he would have won the popular vote but you know the the has they have a story line that they want to focus on and I'm not mad matted. Oh yeah but I do want to go back to just the racist thing for just a second let's talk about. I think it's insane. How people people can like take me criticizing someone in which we criticize Ben? It's part of the podcast it would be really really boring. If we were just positive all the time we criticize so many contestants but I- criticize Mike and all the sudden it's different than when I criticized Kaelin or it's different than what I criticize Peter Being Vanilla but then it's then it's racist when it's towards Mike support what I was trying to make was like how can you possibly jump to that conclusion until you guys know that I'm friends Teixeira and Rachel and the sane man yeah so so again. I think that goes back to that's the easiest thing to do right. If we're all white in this room we will go to something else. 'cause I'm the one black guy in his room. That's something easy to to talk awkward and like. I said I don't pass. I'm hoping here not a racist. I'm not saying that you all right but that some easy speak on it's easy something easy to go to what you said. Earlier was the follower account yeah and Rachel for Your. I haven't seen Rachel Person Brian actually she's. She's a cutie like schrader Yeah Rachel. She's really cutie and I I am sally. Sadly I noticed that I'm the highest I the most followers from Bachelor nation as far as the blackmail significantly lower than people that have had as much screen time pretty crazy. Yeah I think yeah I'm sorry mom find one point that I would love to have you guys discuss and and this is to it's essentially defend Ashley. Even Tyler spoke about that yesterday. When I was in New York with him? He touted as sexy by far right on your he was. We're talking about something. He was like racism you know he's he has two point one million. The average black contestant probably has what one hundred yeah if that if that takes you farther than a lot of cash over half a million but one thing I wanted to talk about is that just to astronaut. I think the third must've happened very close order so one thing is when Ashley criticized you or gave her opinion opinion of you. I actually think it would have been more of a disservice if you did not give your opinion because Mike is Black like if you censor your thoughts it's like everyone on the show should be loved or criticized for their whatever their behavior is on the show. If you're acting unlike ascalon you're an ass clown which he never has been. You're not asking. Did you call our Luke Luke work. Yeah we call that all day long aw so therefore I'm this no I understand Liu so therefore give it to her now people. I don't know her pets guys. Well given your got because you WanNa have a show. Hey I know you guys. You know what I mean. It's it's just insane that you'd blame the color of somebody's skin that here's the thing Mike thanksgiving. Thanks thanks for talking about.

I mean I think the essence who we are as humans and how we gain support and how we feel accepted in how we relate Mike I wanna on and I know you have more to say and I want to give you some time to speak without any interruptions here. Would this year we've seen some huge changes in Bashar nation. We've seen sex openly talked about We've seen Jimmy come out in a in a same sex relationship and we've seen you more than ever really push to the bachelor and have a legitimate reason to be the bachelor. He's he's his is going. I mean this you talked about as I don't think I ever no no. I'm saying like you should like you're right. They're like you're pushing the bachelor you you're in the conversation the whole time. Yes Sir Mike you said something. That is incredibly brilliant to me something. I've never even thought of this. If you were the bachelor this next season ratings as may have dropped for that season you think they might have but the next season it would have been even greater because of who they would've gained one hundred percent Mike. How do we get an audience or how do we get people in general to rally around new ideas and evolve in the way that Bashar nation needs to evolve or just wants to evolve but there's things restricting it? I think that the people that are in the hands that need to be representative of the people that you're trying to ascertain is just like the Oscars they the people that were writing movies. were all like old white guys and they're going to gravitate towards what's nationals who them right if you have a diverse in group of people that choose who the next lead should be. I think you'll get more of a diverse outcome. I think he said something. I wanted to go back. It's just it's a powerful powerful idea that you would blaze that trail that the show would have to sacrifice a season of ratings for it's just my hypothesis right. I don't think you're wrong like this crazy part will we've seen in the Bachelorette what's happened since Rachel Ray have never been better correct. What's happened in the bachelor? Sincere readings have never been better. Here's the deal you told me you just said something before the break you said if I went to Atlanta nobody would know me. I was in Atlanta last week. Here's the crazy part in what I love about the show. If I'M GONNA Atlanta which I was last week people do know not everybody hood well that might be different but as at the Marriott downtown they did. I don't think that happens ten years ago that one hundred percent I will say see that no one in my family knew what the show was prior to me being on the show I have friends of every race they they knew what the show is. We have to have representation. It's just that's I mean. Rachel was a huge push in that I think I'll be I would have been a great push in that as well but in order to be representative of America we have huge push when I had conversations with the hands Ibn regardless of being the bachelor I spoke on Eminem right I was I was the you know he wasn't the first White Robert where he was like to be swept right and guess what that ever hip hop. He made it even bigger. Yeah you know what is Serena Williams who for tennis even bigger right. What a Tiger Woods Golf? These are things I spoke about when I I was in an meeting it may how never thought this way. No no you blow my mind. I've never thought in the way that you're explaining things and it's and it's not your fault. I mean it's just we gravitate to what we know right. I remember watching this one pocket which I can call them out because he he does such a wonderful job he said in order for us to intermingle. We have to make sure why people are not scared of us and so that's why it was so big of me just to me me. I'm wearing my do rag. I'm GONNA say home. He said a friend I mean he's my colloquialism. Be Me when when you actually as Mahoney's back home right. I want you to know me for me instead of me trying to act how I perceive you to act right now. I feel like when that happens. We feel like we we can bond better. I think that's a big thing as well. I feel like today we are going to get to know you better. That's the whole point of the indepth podcast. I I WANNA. Start like back from where you're from. I know you talked a lot about what you call it on the Bachelorette. It was your mom your grandma your sister would you call them. Queens Queens Yeah so yeah that's cute cute. Tell us a little bit about your childhood. Did you grow up in San Antonio Antonio. No I just I've been living there right. After I left the military I moved to San Antonio. I didn't WanNa Move Dallas. I'm from Grand Prairie South Grand Prix specifically I didn't want to move back there only because I know I wanna be I feel that personally and this is like you know this message if you graduate high school and you stay in your same neighborhood amount to the success that you can't if you were to move out small personal view and I don't want to move back to grand prairie after I left the military and saw chose San Antonio came and findings of the visor disembark tell us about your time in the military cybersecurity which is just a nerd job. I prevent hacker from hacking into our network I was stationed over in Portugal and I was stationed over in England where I met my ex prior to being on TV odd delay that broke my heart. You know all that stuff and we're moving this. Show you gotTa have would you man it. Bro Bad people say I didn't cry like wells. Sit Down and cry and so therefore that's so ignorant and therefore I wasn't the bachelor because I didn't show emotion like that from where I'm from. We don't it's not I have shown emotion but it's not it's not it's GonNa take more than two months for me to show that emotion see you're slow grower. When it comes to fall in love I I told him that definitely and I think that it's perfectly fine that not everyone is a exact same? When it comes to how they feel emotionally so? Do you think the process would have been okay for you. Having to one hundred two months one hundred bachelor one hundred percent okay I think Joe Joe and Jordan he just repropose right yeah. That's how things work. I mean you find your person. If you're able to find your person then you can leave the show together Coltman Cassie are Mary so you think you would have proposed. I know I'm getting getting back into that. You don't know that. Do you think that you would propose if you're the bachelor. If I were to be the best one hundred percent fax yeah yeah I mean I'm thirty two two years old. Almost let's say I'll legit. I love love. I really I really want my thunder but I really want. You know the sexiest thing to call the same to me. He's like an Friday Saturday tonight. When I got my like I love sleeping naked? I love being negative. My House Dean Front here Dean. He doesn't believe in underwear neither do I so I just rather be naked all day but that's another story another podcast but the coolest sexiest thing to me is like an Friday every Saturday night you know being with your mate and like McGraw head on my chess player chess airs. I love stuff like that like legit. I want that Mike You your man who obviously feels like I feel right now. If you you are what we won in-depth indepth podcast the man to sit down and talk about some real stuff dig deep with us and share your heart and your emotions so what has been the biggest the biggest disappointment in the last five months of this process for you because really you've seen your season air in paradise air all within the last five to six months. How how has it changed you in a good way and then also how's it? How's it kind of? I think always changes. Let me let me put this in the context. I think always changes this in a in the good way if we're willing to let it but I also think it really hurts at times and there's also some massive disappointments and it's not always the most healthy but it's still changes because we learn more about ourselves. What does this last six months for US human well to ninety nine employees more yeah? I'm definitely on my phone. More often. deleted my eyes for a long time definitely got that back. I think I'll say the one cool thing the positive thing which is wells. Your fiance actually said it's not that it was really awesome. She said going on on his show is like a relationship bootcamp something advantage and I think it's true. I am in have been a very slow to to open up because when I opened up I'm like I'm really attached. I mean I've had one. I brought one woman home in a decade. It's not because I can't because it just 'cause. I'm I'm. I'm really I care right and my heart's. I'll tell you this other incredibly serious and so I think the positive thing is that I'm able to open up quicker a whole lot quicker like on the first day of my baby. Yeah you know by and I'm listening to you as well of course sorry stantione that you you can sir. She goes better than you. I know I know I know you got a man of a but I think that's the biggest thing is that what will wells your fiance. They said going on this process. Definitely is a a boot camp for relationships so much quicker to open up and leave honorable I'm not wanting to cry. Just doesn't have me my ex. the only loved the only woman I've ever said I love you too. I didn't cry when we broke up. I cry two and a half years later when she said I'm sorry. Can we talk about her for a little bit. You were together for how long it almost two years and then you guys you lost a baby together together which she talked about looks great now.

Whatever when when we do these in depth it's actually kind of crazy at trump booth on his break up with Kaelin and it was it was hard like it was like brutal Hughes emotional through the whole thing but and I think you'll appreciate this the follow up from that wasn't credible like the listeners going? I relate I can feel I'm not alone and that's what these are really meant to do like they're not meant for anything else Mike before we start talking here.

CW APP we're back with Mike Johnson Mike before I account rudely interrupted you but needed to just for the sake of the PODCAST. You'RE GONNA raise share some stuff. I think our listeners will relate with and want to hear I want to do it. You're you're on your way. The question to ask was hey you had to you. During that there was a child that was lost Austin. You've talked about on the BACHELORETTE and you're GonNa talk about now why thank you economic over I just came from a deployment and I was stationed at Raf over in England and it was the day after the fourth of July two thousand thirteen and I I I went out that night to the club and I felt that this lady and at like thirty minutes talking talking to her she said hey you speak to my daughter but come to find out I had already gotten her daughter's phone number and so yeah fellas get them off the first yep up against for you and the young lady and I we scheduled a date and I no call no show on a date not good for you know and it's funny because I remember writing I wrote a letter to God per se and I said I want the hard road up. I wrote a poem. That's what it was and it was the no one but God why because I was twenty five and I had been acting as if I was a rock star you know from a young child's about twenty years now as I'm just done with that I want the sweet things. He's in life white you know put your head on my chest. In let's just chill out you know you face and you'd ice cream and let's start seven tells so and so after I know caller no children a day you know we started talking or whatever and then I was supposed to go how supposedly the military and go back to America and she's very very prideful and she is extremely independent and I remember putting unlike the money in a four ticket inside of her shoe and she says she wanted to go to America with me. I didn't ask her too because that's like huge to say Hey ben leave your life income living in Texas right and so she came with me we have two separate apartments just because we've only known each other for three months and she moved to America with me and I wanted to Lake Lake Mary this woman so I felt that we need to be living together. Even though I wanNA marry her but I wanted to do what I felt was the right way and so then like there are some call tech school. LS Airman Leadership School I went to that and we moved in together and everything's beautiful blissful. I you got a damn cat cats sacrificing sumo sumo cinnamon toast you end up loving the cat. Oh he the cat sumo his name. He loves me more than her desk. I wish you can call in right now. Shield so the truth. His name is Simone Cinnamon Toast. Yes he is certain and yes I love him. Oh and we had we became pregnant and on the show are told the truth. I told Hanna that I wasn't there for the miscarriage but people kind of went off on me but I have I. I didn't get to elaborate because quite honestly that's tweet me my but I'll say so my ex and I had a miscarriage and and I ain't going to some excellent had a miscarriage I am I really try to keeping promises so Ashley keeping a promise which Yama keep you peeking Pinky promise that you keep the only pink problems. I've never kept in my entire thirty one years as of life. It's my ex's MOM when senator some Jalapeno poppers from a store I didn't pick them up and I still remember that day. That was like eight years ago almost and my best friend who lives in England he was coming to Houston. We lived in San Antonio at the time and I asked my ex fellows message right here the give it to you. I asked my ex baby. Can I go to Houston Day and she said Yes fellas when your lady say yes. She means no and I didn't know that lesson at the time and so I left I literally was gone for. Maybe maybe thirty hours he came back and I wasn't there for and that's what I mean by that way. I'm doing this show made. It seem like you weren't therefore her like emotionally. No she'll tell you I was there for emotionally like I wasn't there currently physically in that moment we lost. We lost our CIA. I I was therefore when we lost our job but like doing the grieving process which is a very serious thing and I was gone left on Saturday came back on a Sunday now aw yeah Mike I know we're going to have listeners that really it's like this is a hundred from a supporters perspective like a year perspective and then also from a woman care the child. What was the grieving process like if you if you don't mind trying to explain it so that people out there listening to go yet there there with me so my kind of shaking? I think that for one agreement process differ for everyone doesn't matter your the gender. I think it's different for everyone from my ex. I feel that everyone knows I want children. Children like my ultimate goal in life is to build my future children on treehouse more than money more than anything what I WANNA do. That's that's for Damn sure happen and she knew that and she don't WanNa have children but then we got together she said I'll be a great father and so she wanted to have kids and I think that the biggest thing was has her not. She didn't feel like she was a woman. You know because I'm like shaking. The big thing was. She didn't feel like she was good enough for me because she felt as if she's going to have children and I want to tell her and everyone else out there that your man loves you like if you have a miscarriage I love you like it's it's okay right just communicate and my ex really didn't communicate that to me at all but also I was ignorant guy guys we are at the time I wasn't experiencing relationships and so I didn't really know how to communicate with her either. I literally became a perfect gentleman like it's annoying. When you become perfect gentleman it really is knowing and that's what I did because I didn't know what else to do? I mean I'm asking my mom her mom my grandma my sister you know what to do and just in a work but what she told me two and a half years later and that's when I cry I broke up with her after like maybe eleven months after months months after yeah. Let's before you get there. I was GonNa say what are the what was like. Between the time at the miscarriage happened in the end was that was that affected acted. It effected the no one hundred percent so I think I communications obese. I don't let's let's disagree. It's okay right. Let me I remember telling my ex I said let's dilly feeling so my ex. It's not spoken since the show Eric she watched the show and it was a very hard time. When the episode aired I called her knows except at home so y'all know this fish so definitely reach out to her and it was a sad moment for us and basically what she told Emme was? She didn't know how to she. She not talk to me because she felt like she had failed almost and I just looked at it was like everything that you go through. I just wanted to be there with you. I don't care if you went through the toughest in the world. I WANNA be right there with you and I think so many people we know that in a relationship when someone loves you. I don't care what it is. I don't care I remember joking about this. My friends that I found love if you achieve I mean I'm still Levy. I don't fall in love easily so I'm still in love you now. You'll has been not cheat on me but I'm still in love you and so I think that was a a big learning lesson for us for me because I need to know how to make a good environment for you to feel that comfortable right I think for her. It needs to be as she can be open and communicate with me and know that I'm GonNa love her even more because we we went through a traumatic experience together in comparison to going through a traumatic experience separately but the exact same experience in so and that's kind of what happened we live in. We stayed in two separate rooms for awhile I sleep naked only rule in my house you kill me and when sleeve negative not to suffer and so we will we will be sleeping in bay but like we went. I'M GONNA cut a photo. You know we went holy. Howdy Jerry I sound so corny but it's true we wouldn't hold each other? We want to have sex and it wasn't because of religion. It wasn't because of upstanding from from sexy I think she just felt as if could happen again that she could become pregnant again even though she was on birth control and it was just a lot of mental things going on and I've learned so much and I love her so much for help me grow in that area and I actually took classes since I've been single legit WanNa be phenomenal has been and I've taken classes on how to communicate because communication is different than effective communication right I can say been I think you're tall. That's terrible example just communication in different ineffective communication and while I was on the Bachelorette I wasn't there for her going back to that for like thirty hours Max during that grieving period and Shakiness don't happen to me Phil that's happened. I broke up with her because communication communication was void and there'll be months where we didn't have sex and I don't cheat refuse to cheat and I desire communication desired sex quite honestly so you came back doc. Thanks for share that by the way for us here but for the people listening you've just totally opened your heart better. You cry yeah I know is this like so emotional. So the thing is that you get off the show you call her. You guys talk this through and you said you cried wants your life when she said she was sorry. What led your that Nas off?

So I cried cried but is that I felt closure CA. I felt that you know I'm I don't care. I was a damn good relationship and I was like when we broke up when I broke up with her. I didn't work for ten ten months like I didn't leave my house except for one day a week to get groceries. I I grew my hair out like my hair was long. I didn't leave my house. I got super skinny any I think people came to visit me that Tim month frame literally I I was a prisoner of like his never said this right when we broke up by legit one hundred percent for ten months was in my apartment and I was financially blessed and so I just pay my bills came out and I just my TV was not on our wake up going to live room. You sit on the couch and just be broke up with her on the phone yeah br I broke up with her. I think that she can we have said this but I think that she wanted me to go out with her. Okay but I'm gonNA take the blame. Would you say I broke up with her. On my own volition. for the reason I spoke of earlier which were we weren't having sex five months on time and there was absolutely zero communication and she said I was perfect perfect and I'm like I'm not privy so she was really good. I'm like well what the Hell is a problem and she couldn't answer so I kind of I gave her ultimate which is a terrible thing to do. Learn that lesson as well L. and so when we broke up I I was at Malley lower. She's the only woman in a decade as my mom decade. I'm that'd be thirty. Two hasn't no one I've known since I was twenty years old and so for whoever relation next Umemoto I take that very seriously my sister and my grandma as well and my father too and and so yeah I didn't I literally was growing up my hair and my hair was nappy. I was like grizzly faced didn't work when I went back to.

Episode 5 | Mike Johnson I See It! Productions

"Hi and welcome to global impact a podcast designed to help you find the freedom to accomplish more with your life increase the productivity of your team and make a difference in the lives of people around the world. I'm your host Jay Oliver and thank you for joining us. Hello again I'm Jay w Oliver with global impact and we are super excited to have a friend and also client client with us Mr Mike Johnson. Good Morning Mike. Our you good morning. Thank you for inviting me to be a part of your show today. Yeah we've got an interesting story. Mike is actually been with us as a client rover year. I've known Mike for Probably ten years. I at from a church relationship and Mike. Why don't you tell us a little bit about yourself about what you've done in the past also how you ended up where you are today with your company? Yeah look to thank you. Well my my background is within Church Ministry and graduated from seminary back in the early nineties and started working at a church here in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex As a children's pastor am I I definitely have a passion for reaching and teaching kids About Christ's about his love And with with an emphasis this is on helping the kids to become the leaders that God designed them to be setting that foundation groundwork for them early on that Godkin build gone through the rest of their lives So would that emphasis. I started at this at the Church and worked there as the Children's pastor for for twenty five five years and had just an amazing opportunity through the church to reach literally children around the world we produced a curriculum called elevate curriculum we had over seven thousand churches using it was an animation live action Curriculum Elam and that was that was always my passion to reach the kids locally through the church but then also to reach kids globally with a product Oughta that could make a difference in their life by teaching them. God's word in not just giving them information about God's word but also then helping them apply that to their lives will mike and there's some there's some statistics to about reaching children before the age of leave it's sixteen or eighteen that that's that's the most opportunistic time to bring them to the Lord. Can you can you speak on bat a little bit. Oh yeah the percentages drop drastically. Unfortunately for people once. They hit that sixteen eighteen year age for coming to know Christ and accept him as their savior. So it's it's salvation in itself is very important an important aspect of reaching kids for sure and then once you you had that once they get onto that path. That journey was Christ then giving them the tools that they need to be successful at it and you now. There are statistics out there that as far as moral development goes States that almost some researchers say almost ninety percent of all of our morals and values are formed before the age of thirteen and so my focus was always on the aspect. They're not just kids. This is such a critical timeframe in a human being's life that we must poor As much effort in emphasis as we can into because we only have one shot at it I use the example of Wet concrete you know when you have a wet concrete slab. It's very easy to poor are put your hand printed it when it's newly poured but you go back in about twelve hours and try to make that same imprint and and it's impossible without getting out your tool or chisel tools and digging into it and so for me. That's been my life emphasis. Let's let's run. I think traditionally to Mike I know I came from a small church background. And my wife actually served served as the children's pastor for short period of time and and we've we've seen it in other churches maybe even in big churches but from a budget standpoint. The emphasis on children has been very low corrective. They were looked at as as you pointed out. They're not just kids and and but but budget wise. We didn't pour the resources into that as well. Yeah Yeah So. I was fortunate to be at a church. That definitely had an emphasis on kids in so I fit right in and part of that emphasis was doing the curriculum. As I mentioned it was animation and live action based in about we stopped producing the curriculum five years ago and I always had kind of a A hole in my heart. I guess to speak so to speak of of missing doing animation doing win them a storyteller at heart. I love to do that. Especially tell stories for kids that makes sense and help them to to learn the applications Shinzo of God's word and a year ago. I started two years ago. Now started sensing you know. God was kind of moving in a direction to to do something. Think about that and my problem was well. That's great. I kind of see God closing some doors behind me and pushing me in that direction. But how in the world could I ever Come up with the financial resources to start in animation automation company. That could do great animated products for kids because animators are very very very expensive. And that's that's where you came in j w you had me over for coffee and we visited and you're sharing with me about global BP and How you know there? There was a great opportunity to get churches involved with it that churches and ministries could utilized great people in Zimbabwe to. Do Anything You know volunteer databases to calling to you website video. You know the list goes on and on and I think I was. Yeah and my objective. In coming to you was that I knew that ministries nonprofits churches were were in a quandary in that they had the allocate a Lotta the resources to staffing and personnel and that a year is a way to to divert your limited a lesser amount of your resources to to these staff and team member. But also you're able to do more with your resources in terms of ministry so yeah that's the reason we started talking and then yeah talk about your dream about Matt Matt. Yeah so the back of my mind as you're thinking that one thinking yes. This is an incredible opportunity for ministries and churches No no in church budgets. Like I do. That is something that they're always looking at trying to do more with the resources that God has blessed them with But number two was started making me think in the back of my mind. I wonder if there's any animators over there in Zimbabwe. And how would you pose that question to me and I thought animators in Zimbabwe Romer Pex not time but you put out how you put out the word and man within. I think it was seven days. Ten days. You had Multiple guys for me and my partner to interview which we did and we hired three on the spot for less than what I would have paid for one animator and that really gave me the confidence to go. Okay God I see a a methodology. I see a plan where forming this animation could happen and could be successful not just currently into the future because we my dream That I believe God has given to me. He is to have an animation company. That is you know one hundred two hundred three hundred people strong that can do faith-based animation as well as projects for within the ministry and to do something like that stateside solely would be very cost prohibitive and since we're trying to reach churches and nonprofits bear budgets are limited so by utilizing leising employees in Zimbabwe. We can one make a huge difference in people's lives over there which I love to talk about a minute but to provide a incredibly high quality product for half the price of what they would have to pay otherwise I I think that's real important to note too. We have number one Mike and his company. I see it has been able to help us with our marketing. You've done some amazing videos for us and help do some storyboarding so we've been able to leverage. Mike's Talent his teams talent and his partners talent to be able to to help us move forward and then some amazing work. But I think it's important at this point Mike to talk a little bit about the difference. We switched our are. You're calling from outsourcing because we don't believe is truly outsourcing to insourcing and we think that name is is is more fitting to what we do and you've been to Africa Mike. Mike spent a couple of weeks working with his team and my team this past summer. So He's been I I I hand I view to see what's going on so talk a little bit about what to nothing the in sourcing versus the outsourcing and why there is a differentiation and also how you've seen an impact live on your side. Yeah well personally when I hear the word outsourcing it has semi negative connotation with it. You know I think we we've. We've all had experiences with calling a company and talking to someone that you can barely understand and Dan oftentimes. Does it truly know the answers that you might need for them to know but insourcing for me I think really helped me to understand what global BP does in that we have employees employees. That work just for I see it productions and I'm in contact with them every day via zoom and APP that allows you to communicate over the Internet for your computer and video by the way with your the video and while they work within the the beautiful building. They're enjoying a city in in Harari under the global BP name they ultimately are working for me and so why that makes a difference to me is. I'm always working with the exact. Same people We have five over there. And it's it's it's tough to get people that are not fully committed to you as a company To A to understand your culture understand your processes if you're if you're continuously hopping between different people in your Within your outsourcing company. Then I think you're gonNA end up struggling and never be able to get the product out that you want to give but if you have people that are solely dedicated to you forty hours a week and you can help train them you can visit with them. On a regular basis you can develop Gallup culture with them and you truly are going to be able to build a team over there that is exceptional and unique from other outsourcing companies. Because they truly just in extension of of you and your team they just happen to live four thousand miles across the globe but with technology today That's nothing literally when I zoom with the guys every morning it's like they could be you know in the office next door or or I often have a better connection with them than I do with my partner who gets on just twenty miles away so they truly are. I think that is the difference right. I mean you're you're working with the same person every day you're speaking to them. You get to know him. You know about their families they they can they can adjust work. Work the same hours as you do and and I and I think I always forget this piece of it but not only are they highly educated and talented. Most of them were university. Educations but you know I say it's like speaking to the Queen Right I mean you've got this great UK English accent that they could be in London just as easily could be in Dallas Dallas Fort Worth it. Yeah I've been very impressed to with you. Think okay man. We're going all the way over to Africa to insourcing people culturally. How is that ever going to work? You know how are they going to be able to truly understand the American culture and I've been very very surprised pleasantly. We surprised at how well they communicate. How well they understand our culture and what we do in how we do it and that's been although you know they're always going to be differences? There's differences within the United States of dealing with employees CETERA. But that was a concern of mine. That is was quickly evaporated when I realized how culturally they they. They get what we're trying to do and they do it with excellence. They're hard workers they want. They want to do the very best. They see it as an incredible opportunity because unemployment rates or some say as high as eighty percent in Zimbabwe and. So it's a great place for them to come work and like I said the beautiful high-rise great equipment great atmosphere Pastors on staff to be able to help them with personal needs spiritual needs So for them. It's it's it's a blessing to me for two reasons one is. I'm getting incredible product that I'm able to minister to churches riches in nonprofits Throughout the world but even greater it's a ministry to those people over there. That was one thing that I really really got when I went to. Zimbabwe was my emphasis before going over. There was how can I use the people in Zimbabwe to bless churches here in the United States a when I went over there and came back. My emphasis changed. There's there's such a great people with such a heart and passion for for wanting to use their talents that my emphasis switched to. How can I get churches? Aware of what they he can do over there so that we can bless them and the amount you know. We're had the fortunate aspect of paying an American dollars which not very many people companies can do in Zimbabwe. So it's a highly sought after company to work for the resources that I'm giving them them or our company is giving to them is not just making a difference in their own life supporting oftentimes. They're the brothers and sisters and parents and kids and it just makes me excited to know that I'm not just getting something for myself but really participating in a mission oil project where I'm able to bless someone over there and make a difference in their life. Yeah I think that goes back to. The impacting lives which we talk about here. Global impact and Pike lives. Is The win win win which we really subscribe to it or part of them. The wind not not only for the person we're providing the service to which in your case what you've mentioned it's probably twenty five or thirty percent of the total cost. So maybe as much as seventy seventy five percents savings which is fantastic also employing someone who By the way Africa out of the fifty four countries in the continent of Africa they rank one or two in terms of of education literacy right they have one of the highest is the highest education rate for university education in in the in the country. And and then it's then it's a win for other ministries my partner not both As you know we take fifty one percent of our profits and a reallocating those various areas ministries and so it is impactful. It's not only a originally. You go thinking I'm looking for some cheap labor and I'm just going to be able to leverage my business but next thing you know you're part of their lives and they truly are becoming a part of your team and and that is what makes it all worthwhile when you you get to. The last not only are able to leverage your business impact on the lives but you're contributed ministries as well. I think that's the benefit of insourcing that these people are part of your team. Part of your family We have a group that we were with that has employees over. They're doing graphic work for them and they they truly think of them as as part of their overall families university and care about their needs needs they care about their background and their families. And you just don't you don't get that I don't believe through outsourcing but through insourcing sourcing and what you guys provide. It's it truly is a win win win. And we've had a couple of other customers or clients just in the last couple of weeks who've actually sit little care packages with t shirts and gifts and things up for one of them has fifteen or eighteen people working there. They'd send them all their logo shirts and they just thought that was was just out of this world and and it does show that we do truly care about them and what they're doing and Mike mentioned about the ministry aspects we have to full time Pastoral cares persons there who are trained and educated pastors in the ministry and they work for us. Full time now helping to work with their spiritual their emotional even their financial need. We've got weekly Bible Studies and prayer groups and we also have ted talks. We do help it to invest in their lives so there definitely are team. They're not just somebody where utilizing and say. Hey Gimme the next one. And we're not doing that at all. Yeah which yeah. Yeah I mean wow that is so. That's so awesome so awesome to be a part of that. Well Mike so I ah a bottom line. We've talked about the ministry aspect but I've been in startups new businesses and obviously the the cost aspect when you had this dream in your mind and and you've got an idea like man. I really want to get it obviously with you. Many times me in the past the financial chill obstacles were just too much. I need a person to do this and I don't know how to do this. I don't advocate this. So for many people out there thinking about starting a a business this does give them the opportunity or maybe even growing their businesses in a different area. They may say you know. I'm I'm in the This this trainer through this mode or this canal of my business this marketing channel and I would like to to venture out and try it in this because I think I could be successful but cost is always the a hurdle in the objective and and just maybe a little bit more about how. That's allowed you to do what you do. Yeah well like I said I definitely wouldn't have been able to uh-huh tackle this dream without having the opportunity to get the employees that I've got at the price that we have have gotten in that and so you know we have five now and looking to grow that over two thousand some twenty to twenty five or thirty or more this year and there's a there's a big need out there for faith based high quality animation. Listen and again to be able to offer a high quality product at a very reasonable price to faith-based ministries into others will allow us to to grow that team over there and oftentimes your payroll is overwhelming Wyoming. To the point. Where you you know? You can't build your company the way you want to just because you can never get ahead of yourself and by utilizing people in Zimbabwe. I think you can. I think you can generate the revenue and bring people on while still generating sufficient. Oh Shit revenue and that's for me the key to growing this thing and that that's one of my partners objective all along has I've been to grow this business. Because we know that each person we add to a client or to one of our companies it significantly impacting possibly six or eight people. It's not only sponsoring that that person that works for us that team member but it it could be their children their spouse and most likely it's other a member of their family their their mother brother sister. So it's it's a true blessing knowing that each person we put as we say a button to see a we. Actually we are are having a major impact on the ministry in Africa's well yeah most definitely and I'm excited about you know making a difference in the lives of many many many more. Well you truly are the numbers out there. Say that less than four percent of the people in the world actually set goals the number of people that probably then have those dreams get squished because they they look at uc the financial santeuil burden. I'm going to have and they gotta keep working their job because obviously we have obligations. So we've got some things working for twenty twenty dream starter packages that were excited about where the people like yourself can can can take leverage their business and and make it successful while same time being diligent legit to see that they're impacting ministries. And giving back to God in a way that we we we all are looking for to be impactful in our lives more than just the the standard tie if you will. We're making an impact on on people's lives as well Mike. I would ask what what what kind of to kind of wrap this up a little bit. But Comey what's your next big goal or big dream. What are you see for? Not only your company and Your Business but also your ministry. Because we'll I'll say after twenty plus years in the ministry you're really you've always been an impact but this is also making a major impact. So what's your next. Step your next bill. So the ultimate goal is we want to produce a feature length animated film that's faith-based that reveals Christ nice to the world in a way that would be fairly unexpected the large passion. We have why we call it our company I see it productions. Is I believe that. Unfortunately Christianity has a negative connotation these days in a lot of people's minds. And that's because of a lot of You know bad experience. Or they're listening to social media or politics or or whatever and they don't really understand who Christ is and what he did for us and coming at them with a Christian message. That is kind of in your face more often. They'll turn you tune you out before you even get a chance to share with them and so we want to develop media. That has an Aha moment and I see it moment somewhere within the media that allows them to go wait a minute. That's who cries deuce. Okay that's not at all my expected suspected or what I was taught or what I believe and so our vision goal is to produce media. That does that. Our goal is to build an animation company over there in Zimbabwe. Utilizing you guys and I would love to have two three four hundred people over there that are able to to just knock out incredible products that are making a difference in the lives. The people so short term goals probably twenty five to thirty this year and then long term goals would be within two or three years having having enough employees that are handling and managing smaller projects. But then being able to turn. And maybe you ll is whole company to do a feature film well. Hey Man I love that and we've already got your space reserved on the outside of the building and says I see production problem at all. Well Mike I truly appreciate it a thing. I do want to say that he is able to see. The potential in everybody got through the ministry he even elevated me in the church. I became the director of the potty patrol. That in that's how Mike Saumur the best and he said No. We're not moving you from this spot because you are the best for the patrol so how took that opportunity take pride and a still. It's super part of my ministry rack and all the business skills you learn from that you've you've parlayed into a very successful us life without you wouldn't be here without her sure But no Mike you. You've been an impact on on so many through your twenty five plus plus years of Church Ministry and I know that God has placed this on your heart as your dream and your vision and we're praying for you. We know that the impact you're going to have not only in the business world but in the ministry world is GonNa be second to none. I'm proud to call you friend. You've been a real same here a blessing to me and we've always offered pray for me. Use sometimes out of the blue. What can I pray for you today? I can count Those those friends on one or two fingers do that so so thank you for that and and thank you for your ministry and for your impact. You're having on the lives of the people.

I want to dig into who he is and I think that was one of the biggest things about him. Not being chosen as the bachelor is we never got to know who might Johnson was and so on the indepth episode. I think it's our opportunity if to let all of Bachelor nation know maybe why he believes he should have been chosen why he wasn't chosen what he hopes for now without being chosen and who might Johnson is as a human they really skipped by him in paradise didn't get to know him any better. Arthur Paradise. I wonder why so huge episode today. We cannot be more pumped at this off season Ashley.

I read her boyfriend's anyway so it's not like but jared mrs our dog so much like that our dog is the other woman like he's so in love with a dog. It's like romantic. Yeah I realized that when I it was after your wedding and we came upstairs to talk to your family and I walked in the room and I think I made a joke about the dog like it wasn't even me yeah. It was like about about the lowest like there's Lois like she doesn't matter jared. Oh my God and he was not okay with no Mike it was it was a bad uneven yeah. No it's like really crazy. He reminisces on her like every day. I love you but I love my lowest. No I told when I was like I'm really glad lowest isn't going on the honeymoon with us because I would have not gotten as much attention real like he used to be like the most affectionate likes mothery person then and then we got lois and like my attention got cut in half. I'm not even kidding you. He just loves playing with the dog so much who sits like who who's touching touching jared more your Lois Lois and she thinks that that's her husband like she knows she likes me. She's like my friend Ashley but like that isn't my dad ed slash husband really confusing relationship yeah. She'll jump over me in good ol' man jared. He's just so loved it. We leave this.

It still affects me really why because I loved her so much only child with Lucy like I I am obsessed with dogs currently but from the ages of twelve to twenty eight twenty eight I had Lucy Lucy and she was like my soul dog like I will never have a relationship with a dog like that again yeah so I was an only child I got a dog and she passed when I went to college like might it like really soon after I went to college and I will never be the same but I'll get another dog like Jessica has the same issue you do. She has the syndrome where like she he walks down and she sees a dog and she just has to touch it like it's like not she can't stop it just like no matter what even if the person has a sign like please don't touch my dog like it just like occur hand. I know it's like security dogs. I'm like I know. It says you're at work but I still wanted to stay low. Yeah the drug drug sniffing dogs yeah. Hey speaking of talent. Mark just walked into the mark.

Let's pay a ton of money. Let's let's dig in here. Okay first off We've talked about your time parrot paradise to an extent that I think you're probably even sick of. I think it's important for us to focus on anything more than where you sit right now now so let's skip ahead with all that in mind to the fact that now you are with one of our favorite people one of my favorite people people but one of the Weirdest Ah yes he sweeps you off your feet and I wanna pause here to to really ask you and I started out by asking why but I really want to ask how oh like. How did this all happen to where you're on a beach in paradise. There's beautiful people all around Dean leaves. He comes back and the thing we don't see is what's going on with that mind of yours to say this guy right here. He's in how I remember so I remember him coming down and I was just completely shocked and I was sitting next to connor who I had been dating and Connor was the one who was initially interested in meeting but dean and I hit it off and then he left and I was heartbroken crushed and still thinking about him in the back of my head and then he comes back and I was like what what are you doing here and I remember sitting down with one of my friends and I was like I'm watching this viewer and viewers are like screaming at me. They're like pit. Connor pitcock house. They were so wrong. I was like I can't hit my heart. I knew from the second game down like my heart was it was I know and you couldn't even help your smile. I love your smile was so like I really can't right now. I have to be you like girl and like really take like protect my heart but like you could not hide it. I love it and let me decide note here. My mom is super awkward in front of Cameras Amorous Dean. Are you listening to this so my mom is super awkward in front of cameras so at our wedding like you have to say something to make her laugh like we usually like quote a movie like My. Dad Jose Rainman rainman like in like in like a Dustin Hoffman voice the weirdest things you can think of and then but at the wedding leading the thing that made my mom's smile pictures was say Dean no gas all. I think that's sweet right. Also she just it's like she has. She has a crush on everyone. Does I mean everyone does even guys do that's what's so special about him is that jared just as much of a crush on and Dina's Ben as me as Kaelin Kaelin probably has ever so he comes down those stairs here. Kalem and you're a woman who sought after Paradise your relationship. What was it about like okay. What was it during that time between windy left ending came back like hide your heart ever left him because here's the thing I've only met you once and it was at the wedding and I didn't know this. I don't if you remember this but the very first thing I said would just can I showed up to the wedding was hey. Where's Dean and I asked you randomly didn't have any clue and you go. He left eft last night. which was my birthday but that's a lot that's the first and last time? I've seen that was it so I watched back and I had a clue. Do you guys have gotten back together. I had heard a rumor. I had no clue how wet I had no idea how he came back why you said yes because the last time I saw your in tears at a wedding after he left yes the That wedding was brutal. I cried a lot and I don't no no it. It was as much as I wanted it to be connor and I wanted I wanted to basically replace deny had with someone else in that didn't work and the second he walked down. I was like Yep. He tried to like hold my hand and I was like no and I'm like I'm GonNa pretend like I'm mad at you and I am. You have to milk it for a little while. Yeah Yeah here it. He has to say away and here. We are now. We guys are cute. You ever think about what your kids is will look like I scare him with marriage and children all the time. There's nothing more than what is this reaction. When you start talking about marriage and children it was like all right. I'm out but dean would be the best data of all time one will be ready for it but he has to be. I know probably fifty but he's okay Killin Ceylan. Let's backtrack a little bit here because we just saw paradise. We just saw you leave paradise. it was a roller coaster of sorts of the whole thing before the show ever happens for. Are you as soon as you hit our. TV screen became an instant like fan favorite. You became known in every House that watch the bachelor at the time before for the show even happened. Would you've ever expected your life would be where it is today. In in what it looked like back then compared to now. Oh Gosh it's so different so I was living being in North Carolina and I love North Carolina but always knew like I wanted to live in a bigger city and just bill anything in Charlotte North Carolina's banking and I just wasn't very happy happy there so from the show said he was like everyone who goes on our show is unhappy with their life in just some smaller large way and so I was just unhappy because my life and that's why I went on the show and funny enough like a year and a couple months ago idea and dean and here I am dating him now a couple of months ago go you saw him on TV and thought he was Q. I can't I can't do this. Is this is why he's doing it so let's let's explain a little bit here. Yes you saw on TV you. Dm Him what so he was. I followed him and he was traveling through Asia and I was like Oh my gosh you're going on vacation. I literally just went on and TDM's back in their inbox uh-huh and this story. I don't even know maybe July June early summer spring of last year before you were officials before yeah before I was cast and I just always thought he was attractive and it's just it's crazy to think like how how we've come full circle now we've been dating for three months and he makes me happy most of the time I don't WanNa leave this yet though because it's a big deal like a really cute thing so I messaged my girlfriend now just going in serum so that's we met as I found her picture at a sporting event that I wasn't and I said Hey you're a top post location. I would I would love to meet you if you're single in if you're interested interested and now we've been dating ever since this instagram thing is is really awesome to me and I don't want to just leave here because you spotted dean. He deems back. was there anything further that happened or is it just kind of like hey. I'm not going to go on the show. Hopefully one day beat him. We were meeting. We were supposed to meet for coffee and if you know Dan you know that he bails on everything so we build on our coffee date and we DM D- probably at the end of my season after that briefly and then he deemed me when I was in Morocco and so there is like a slight thing like a flirting a little bit like it was like yeah we met once in real life and he he's portrayed a little bit shorter on television and then I met him in person. I was like Oh my gosh. She's so much taller than I thought he'd be. You and I was stunned by is in his just so charming and yeah so really one of a kind yeah. I think people can understand it somewhat through TV but when you see when you meet him in real life you're like I've never met another specimen like you. Yes I'm like what is it. We we just went to two together and these girls on the beach were like just obsessed with judging me for being with animals like. I know I have no makeup on but like whatever and they asked that he went to go. Take photos an ocean and they're like will you take a photo of with your camera and I was like I'm right here. uh-huh kidding. That's awesome. Can we talk about this. One thing that we didn't talk about last time. Kayla was on the podcast. It's super embarrassing towards me. She one time watch me competing paget. Who did I did Miss Virginia. I was is doing a preliminary for Miss Miss Virginia and this was right before news this this was right before I was cast on the bachelor officially yeah. I I think I had maybe not gone to casting weekend yet but I had my flight settlers and I like I remembered asking girls exit. It's like if I win this preliminary. Should I do this or the bachelor. What's the like. What does she made the right choice. Budgets are great and I've learned so much from them but I don't know the bachelor just so fun like a once in a lifetime experience with like your best friends and now here's what they gotta do is. We got to sit in a room like this. At the I heart music festival at the planet Hollywood and say like life is really awesome like we're with our friends and and we're having fun and we're going to see a great event and we're talking about life like this doesn't happen without a really crazy show that we've all been able to be a part of and I think that's that's awesome here. Okay I have one follow quite early. Dean and then we're done with Dean okay. Does he still bail once. You're in a relationship ooh does he. I don't think so I think he's pretty I think my expectations are low. Okay okay okay. I like this. It's a great boyfriend okay Libya. Let's talk honestly here okay. He's not the best communicator he's getting better at. It sounds like the Kinda and a guy that we actually have a game for. We have one hundred percent of the time. The newlywed game the game a very very quick fashion. It could be three questions each okay. We're going to match them up. At the end. We asked the room please for a second what was wasn't Dean's last big purchase on his credit card. ooh parachute a parachute. Take Care Yeah if he's not looking at your instagram profile and apparently he doesn't think that you guys should follow each other uh-huh instagram. Is he creeping on ooh. That's a good one probably photographers accounts announcer like travel accounts but he does creep on like everyone from the bachelor to which is very broad but he's always on his phone. He's never not on his phone is not the most annoying it's so nice. You're the same way it drives me crazy. I I'm like you. I put it down on it that much. No it's like. I know what I'm GonNa do right now as he pulled his the following Kaelin so I have something on Dean girlfriend. I'M GONNA call his girlfriend. Sorry okay well. This is a really really obvious one I think. But what do you think that he thinks is feared animal. What do you think his actual spirit airlines so I think he thinks it's like a polar bear thing because he lost his actual spirit animal who is just the puppy like it's so cuddly little cute okay so because you're sitting here with asked this question so we can match them up. What was your last big purchase on on your credit card probably flight. I don't know if you are not on your your own in seagrams or checking out deans who you check it out and what are you checking out probably Cassie Michelle my best friends and then what is your spiritual. Maybe a I always used to say slaw then. I'm like I don't know why. Are you saying that. Maybe maybe not what he said. Hey killing. It's been a pleasure. You've got a great smile. I WANNA say that my girlfriend's brother the most beautiful woman ever seen with his eyes to make sense but Kaelin. Thank you for her buddy. Thank you for being your bubbly.

Yes see on your chest the other night during the reunion is that for her of course I wore bullets with the letter C on it. Signify my affinity entity former girlfriend Zena and I have a Bolo tie thing I actually texted. I got to Bolo ties and I texted a picture of both of them to ban and said Hey. Which one should I wear. He said I should've worn the other. Why get while you were the other one. Now I get it but I like them. Both but Dean and I love bullet is we actually dean was my date to the American accord more music awards last year and we went together and we both will were Bolo ties. We thought it was going to be cool and it was yeah I love the way that in just like walked over to the couch and he doesn't have any shoes on. It's like I don't remember the last time I saw shoes on shoes. I saw you take off your shoes and your socks the second you walk into around. I haven't worn underwear in a long time no. I don't think that's a huge. This is a big problem with me. Though under this is a massive issue with me. I hate this because he plays games with me. Every time around Dean tells me to do something different and I start doing it okay. Let's start the beginning. He wanted to listen. Can I tell a story. You should tell the story but I want you to tell honestly because it really upsets me. I've had massive medical issues. She's because of it giving Tallis's places. Nobody should have a callous okay. I'm going to tell her story. Although you are better storyteller I'm going to tell the story because it's about you and I it might be uncomfortable for you to tell so ben actually all three of US Bachelor Winter Games. We all grew even closer than we were before the three best friends that anyone could have really you guys. It's like everybody came there. We've made friends and then we're like. We're GONNA be friends forever and then like a couple of months later three buses. Every bachelor show is like your super preclude everyone right after the show and then the main course whatever that's that's the important thing here on that show. Ben Somehow somehow obviously. I was like announcing from the rooftops. I don't wear underwear. Ben took that to heart and he goes. I'm going to try not wearing underwear for a little bit too. There's not really reason to it. I feel like it's Kinda constricting. I don't like the fact that there's extra clothes on my body I actually do you think that there's a conspiracy that the laundry detergent companies created underwear so that we would have to wash more clothes so they could sell more detergent and you all know that. Dean hates detergent. Oh it's the worst. I don't use dryer sheets anymore because yes that's and that's really good getting utterance on your clothes. Then get absorbed into your skin is really this. Ask Tell the story anyway. Ben Adopts that mentality. He's GonNa try not worrying onto a little bit which I was super supportive of. I love hearing that I think his sperm counts are really appreciative of a two password a couple months. It's February we go on a trip to Honduras for humanity and hope which is fantastic organization that he heads up with his best friend Riley. They do an amazing job if you haven't checked it out b-share check it out. It was one of the best experiences of my life on the very last day and again this is coming from me who I'm not very religious person. Ben Obviously cold space very close to him despite my like for the despite all that I still had an amazing time so it doesn't matter whether you're religious or not you will still get a benefit out of it anyways on the very last day one of the gentleman that was with us was a pastor was his name again create a Ah Chad Chad so Chad was there and he goes hey. It's our last day in Honduras. We've all had such a great trip. I'm going to go about I'll baptize some of you guys on this last day if you're interested in like three or four people of the twelve that were there with us. We're like yes I would love. That sounds great. Ben Has Your Baptism story from a child like you. Didn't you never really been baptized. I was in a y one point right yeah and so it was like this is a great opportunity for me to get baptized. I would love it. Nothing warm surrounded by some of my great friends with an organization and I love. I love my family. Yes right your mom and dad goes up to get outside and he'd see like stops in his tracks and he goes. I'm not wearing any underwear and then he comes up to me and he goes deny. Just couldn't get baptized. Because of have you should stop wearing underwear you had pants on in a two hour bus ride and everybody was like stripping down until like sports bras and like like shorts and like like men had like boxers on so like because you can't wear clothes it's hot and it's wet and it's a long way home and this is like the most meaningful moment because I was thinking that he went on that tangent because he didn't want to talk about his relationship. Relationship is really something in the close story a month later. I text Dean Dean. I haven't been wearing underwear now for months. It hasn't been a terrible experience words from me but I have one question for you. How in the world do you work out without underworld. It's crushing me like it's embarrassing at times. It hurts at times. It's not funny goes dude. I always wear under when I worked at the compression leg yeah so anyways deans really messed up my life for the better. It's a great story. We just a piece of everything I love about what our friendship has become. Here's just a little more callous in places you don't. WanNa be exactly desert talked about real stuff destroy Israel but I WANNA be. I WanNa talk about why you went from like I'm not going to be in a relationship and I'm just GonNa like gallivant in my van for awhile that's where I am in my life to deciding that you really you liked Ceylan enough to not do that anymore or you're when you're doing it but to incorporate her in that lifestyle those that were thing for me to do yeah not not weird but you you're beautiful and you're you're just like the change it was like. What was it about her. Because you did say that one point you're like it's GonNa take someone like Super Special for me to want to change that and she was obviously that super special special so what is it about her yeah. I guess that's that's a good question. I haven't really been asked I left the show and I spent a little bit of time apart from her for the first time since having literally forty eight hours you went to the Grand Canyon right but even that even just like the time that you're sequestered your hotel room to then catching the flight to then turning back to the San Diego where I left for the Grand Canyon there are moments where I was like missing her and wanted to hang out with her and there were times where I would look over expecting to see your. I didn't see her so it was it's hard to explain like obviously went there without the intention of leaving in a relationship but then. I just met someone that really liked and I tried like try to keep convincing myself that I didn't didn't want to be in a relationship didn't want to be in a relationship and then when I eventually fulfilled that and left not in a relationship I like kept then. Why did I convince myself that. I didn't want something that clearly really. I like him a better person for being in which is the relationship you know so that's. Kinda went back you. You always amaze me really because of the depth at which you think through things not and that's not like fully complements. Let me finish here like you really do think through things and you desire. You're debt like you desire to go deep and all of a sudden. It feels like you hit the trampoline in one of bounce back up as quickly as possible to where I can get like. There's like moments. Where were you go deep and it's it's like I'm here with you and I'm sitting in this with you because you're wise you're intelligent. You're thoughtful and I know you're non-judgmental and then all of a sudden jump back up to a level of shallowness. That's like let's let's. Let's see some weird. Let's jump out of a plane. Nothing playing shallow but like it just feels like let's change the subject as quick as possible. Why like where does that. Come from because what you just you said. There is incredibly deep in insanely courageous for you but it had to come with his hesitancy right. No you're right. I do that a lot. I think it's just like deflecting flecked ability defense mechanism. I guess like I'm willing to I'm willing to give you my vulnerable parts but then I'm afraid to receive your response and so that's why it just jump into something really fast all say something really quick really deep. You know obviously depending on who's listening and then before. I give them a chance to respond. It'd be like but let me real quick and let me make this weird vis changes it. I don't I don't know I don't really I'm not not very empathetic. So when people try to our but like yes you are walking like open up to other people sometimes but then like when other people put up to me. I sometimes struggle with knowing how to feel relaxed. I don't know how to say that back and I feel like I'm not very good at that either. It's like I'm feeling for you but I can't like take what I'm feeling and put it into words. I always feel like I'm GonNa let people down by not showing support and a lot of those situations and so it's like. I don't need necessarily need support so I can. I can like unload some stuff but then I don't want to let that person down by not being able to receive it properly really. Have you seen with Ceylan a change to where you want to support like you want to support her yeah. I think that our relationship is great because we are able to lean each other in those types of situations where like like you know. She encourages me to do a lot of things that I wouldn't be doing without her I would I would think that she would say the same thing about me. I know I overheard some some things when you were saying housing as a boyfriend and she said Oh my gosh she's the worst boyfriend of all time so you know I'm not gonna go ahead and put any words in her mouth but I do like to think that we challenge each other to the point where we are both growing as individuals from the relationship which is great. Weren't you phone or instagram. Why are we doing an interview together right now. It's all weird to me. Hey Ashley as a fun game for you we we're going to play the game which we already asked. Kaelin her questions and he got her answers as well. So are you ready to see how well you know your girlfriend. What was the last thing what was the last thing that she bought her credit. Card was like a big spend plane tickets to to loom. If you guys were together you give each other a kiss right now. Okay Dean because we got to fill the gaps. What was the last major purchase you had on your credit card. Nice Nice there the hotel until now now. What's your second try. I don't know I wanted to say more time to think about it okay. I don't think we have time last major time for us. You made personally not I. I bought a parachute. Hey this okay why it's was the next question okay what what does she creep on. Instagram when she's not looking at urine seagrams which she doesn't isn't allowed to follow like what page specifically like who or reconquer so funny. It's so funny because sometimes we'll be sitting next to each other scrolling. Instagram like simultaneously and our pages are so different. Here's always like fashion in in like clothes and lifestyle stuff that obviously you see a lot of those lifestyle bloggers post mines all like puppies in travel destiny travel destination according to hers travel destinations that was that was your puppies in travel destinations. Kaelin said hers was she said she looks at ears and she also looks at Cassie Michelle's friends. She's a big how did we do. I feel like that was went pretty well. It was pretty good. No we got one more to and that was What do you think her spirit animal is. Can I tell you what she thinks. Minus verse yeah the Polar Bear yes well. That's what she thinks thinker spirit good enough. I'm pretty impressed with these two kind of getting Q. Let you down then because I I know what her spirit animal is but I cannot. What does she think it's not. It's not one that is like Cougar. No I know and I know the answer to this because we talk about four and I make fun of her for it. Oh my Gosh I can't remember Oh for. It's a woodland creature to come on. I think he's GonNa get it johnny down. It's making me anxious. I don't want to describe it. Yes what is it just telling me. You're going to get that cash what she doesn't know why. That's her spirit and all right. I was thinking like along the lines of beaver but I yeah I knew. It wasn't a beaver glad you didn't say hey everybody. We love him. Thank you guys for having yeah.

Let's keep that in there hey we are here with Derek Path. He was a huge part of this season Bachelor in paradise and yet when I asked Stephen April and Napa Valley. You're going on the show you one hundred percent certainly now. We've got to keep them guessing Ashley. We're live at the planet Hollywood Hollywood to sitting up. This views pretty nice. Our view on the last thing it with Dean was nice. He was good looking fellow. Kaelin was beautiful but then we bring a derek path endeared path rocked bachelor nations pave. I know but everybody can say passed. I don't care how do you feel that now your name. I have two names Darren in hey. I had no clue their pay rocked bachelor's world this year. I mean a guy. Let's say this you came out of nowhere to be within two weeks all of a sudden in every conversation to be the next bachelor. I would say that it was because paradise happened to me instead of me being there. You know it was a it was a rough time in and that's you know people can connect with that. I think that's part of the show right is how do you go through tough times and that's. I think what happened. You handled it with such grace and empathy and beauty snus. How do you feel like you handle yourself. I I feel like a pageant queen. Now I was like I was pretty proud of myself because in the moments you know like you don't know oh how you're gonNA respond and you just are are being you and you have these ideas especially dealing with the situation I mean that's like a new thing never before had it been broken up within that style you know put that scenario going on and you think these things in your head and then like whatever the words just come out of your mouth and br. I self reflecting afterwards and and and be like Oh that was what I always thought I would say but you know it's nice to know that like in real life. That's how acted so when you left left. Paradise and everybody was like Oh my God I feel so every felt so bad for you like your never go. There are no other humans on this earth didn't exist in paradise. Derek's justified guys obviously just saw he's good looking and gentlemen. Oh man got a great personality and then like you're gonNA be fine. You think you're going to be fine yeah. I think I'm going to be fine of course better to hear some funny save so dare. Can I get on the plane. Some guy comes up. He goes oh my gosh. My girlfriend is going to be so jerry this the amazing standing there and like the like gives Jack Derek D. like man hug and then he looks at me gives me the man hug go right cool cool cool and then I realize he has no interest in me at all goes dude. I would love you. Take a picture a picture of Derek. Stay there. It goes through. This is weird. I I mean it's kind of cool. It's very cool. DARE DARE PAY IS BILL UP. Okay Derek though I were just talking talking before we got in this segment and we said that you handled yourself so well and so many scenarios and that's great we can say that and that's GonNa make you feel a warm and fuzzy but you also said that. You just made a comment. It's interesting to me. You said when Demi told you hey. I can't do this not because I don't like not because I'm not interested in you but because I'm in love with somebody else. That just happens to be a woman You just made a comment. I was hoping I'd always handle this was this was this scenario. You've played out in your head before. No I just think like I'm very open minded person so like I have a whole host of gay friends in New York and I think that empathy thing where you you think you know what they've gone through and what their life is like in and until you're there in the middle of it like experiencing someone coming out and you're like holy at someone coming out to me on national. TV and they're also breaking up with me simultaneously. You can't think about it too much. You just sit. You just say what what comes to mind so I mean it's not that it's not that like I ever had thought that would be something I'd be a part of it and I think that's what made it so so extremely powerful to me to see and watch back and again like I'm proud of myself. There is a conspiracy theory that you Christian and Demi were all in on it. Oh I know it's so funny and then like a real theory. No there was there was a lot I mean people just looking for excuses. Honestly I think that's like like a lot of homophobia. People who are not able to accept the fact that somebody would on both sides handle it the way that both Christian. I did but like Christner friends now. She's a super awesome person and that's like invent their speaks volumes about her to what I mean for. You dared all of a sudden sudden in life gets. We Love them to highlight these these segments in these times on on the show because you watch a show. It's entertaining. It's funny. It's enjoyable enjoyable whatever and then all of a sudden. There's moments every season. No matter what happens life smashing the face like these this is a real moment with a real humid having real emotions wins in real feelings. You witnessed a couple of those this season. It wasn't just one of those for you wasn't just demean Christian because once that happened you support it in the move. It was also a a relation Patia that lit then led into J. J. Coming after you guys are here planet Hollywood read. This is the first time you'll be seeing her since well. We saw each other at the reunion show yeah but I mean even then. We didn't really interact much okay off drama over here. I just WanNa know like for you. Derrick like it was a lot of real moments for you like this now just thinking thinking back on it. Should I break it down by week but I don't think we put the whole puzzle together. This had to be almost exhausted. Oh absolutely it was exhausting and that's why in the end. Oh my decision to go home. I actually like asked a few of the producers who'd become friends. I looked at him and I was like. Please leave now. I'm just so empty I was like. I'm so empty. ooh. This is the right decision for me right like I just got a this is I can't. I can't president anymore and like I wasn't ready to be connected to anybody else at that point because so much had happened and honestly like having bounced around like that. I didn't see how I could connect with anyone from their side either. At that time it was time for me so like I just mentioned just arrived a planet Hollywood. I I believe that John Paul Jones was supposed to be with her here this weekend. I'm not sure what's going on with that. I believe that he's no longer here with her. No way update from amy the grab the mic up that is like a massive rumor starter. Noah that's my job we did invite Hannah well. Do you like pictures with mutation mutation invited Teasha and JP separately or together as a couple. I invited I'm good friends with so I invited Teixeira and in said Vijay. PJ here's the trick J. J. lives on the east coast so that would have been money for me to fly him here. Which I was running out of money he also has a real job and finally Teixeira is going on a trip so she's only here one day so it wouldn't be very it was not like oh no trouble in pair okay then wise a reality. Steve Rumor that they broke up so amy. Why are you throwing around real jobs here like I don't know we just had a we did a fifteen minute conversation. About how like how you realize outside of this. I work like forty to fifty hours right running a company that much compared to some but it's enough not real job job the same as y'all's not real job on a real so here's what I will say and taken speak for herself. I think it's fine. I think they're together okay but I don't think someone that lives in California and some of those on the East Coast is the easiest thing and when she can expand on that okay okay we will have her come and expand on that breaking news okay well but I do want to talk about Derrick Derrick if J. J. was here. J. Comes in. Take my segment away again. I am just trying to talk to people amy comes comes in and talks about Jj right. That's kind of ironic but I was going to say. Hey isn't here to scream at you. As you try to explain yourself. Can you tell us what the release said during that conversation which are all the drama. I mean totally it was it's all been aired. It just like been chopped up because because it was a truck running every time I tried to talk about it so I mean first of all. We were all sitting around in the bunk area Kundu getting ready for different days and a couple of people were asking me questions about what life after paradise is like like stuff like stuff as if what we're doing right right now. We're here doing cool things right so I started talking about that. You know it's awesome. Get get some great opportunities. You know there's there's all kinds of fun things that you can do you and then he's specifically asked me about like girls that send me messages. He says this in reunion show that he asked me this question you know and I said that you can hook up with girls but I don't suggest it because there's a lot of stuff that can blow up in your face after the fact like everybody's watching you you exactly like I'm going to take a side note here. Because I want to point something out. We just talked about Kaelin Dean and how cute it is so so funny. Ben is now in a relationship because of his funny and why is it suddenly a bad if I even reply to hi it's not but I know but that was that was basically the gist of it and then it became a totally different thing where he turned that into into saying that I took advantage of women which is super weird. Turn it into now. He like you very much man. That's it. They wanted to come up with one thing and he blew it up because it's all he could find so here's the funny thing about me right now. We have Mike Johnson sitting in the corner over there. We have of you sitting on the on the couch with us. We've Kaelin that just got off the podcast so the the first time I met Mike and the first human was at the Chris and Crystal Wedding uh-huh actually. I Dunno if you remember this moment for me. I remember the moment so I walk into the wedding. This is Jessica's first time being around the show. We're all I'm nervous. Nervous a little bit because I'm bringing the girl that I love with me onto the show for the first time I don't know what to expect. We walk in and everything seems peaceful normal and then the cast comes the cast comes walking walking down in the show follows the cameras follow people follow all that stuff. My Johnson walks in the room and I go up and I say hi to him. He says hi back he looks is. It's a great little interaction before oh I know within two minutes of talking to Mike. I get a tap on my shoulder for two producer. Hey please don't talk to Mike Really. There's there's there's going. It'd be mingling going on at this thing and we don't want him distracted fair enough like him on the show turnaround. Jp Jay's yelled. The dairy. Show is still happening. Welcome back then Yeah Circle Ceylan state and there I go hey. Where did she goes me last night. Take thought we were GONNA walk onto a set actually halls. Oh that was it was a while that was all that was one of the weirdest things I've ever been a part of this. I I was I went over to talk to Chris Chris Family at one point in time and the producers same thing. They're like like hey you got to go over there. I was just trying to be courteous and meet their family because here we are mingling with cameras around and I just feel awkward like I needed to at least say hi to them. So are you dating anyone. Now I am not I actually basically took a break away from any of that. 'cause I mean first of all my real job. Thanks amy but I had been away for three weeks. You know so like one folks back on that and also I tried to date after the Bachelorette and it ended up a really bad because like her watching that and seeing seeing me go through that back on camera. I think it was really hard for her so I didn't WanNA. I thought it was unfair for me to try and put anybody through that we agree.

Yeah absolutely press box so the Tallinn's which come like halfway up your calf of the ankle boots which come just above your ankles that are really good to flying and then I have these bad boys that are might indoor house slippers. That's what I got. I got only minor pink. Thank minor as manly as these can get a hold on but like do you fly. Here's like I almost because I was was in New York for so long. I almost flaine. That's not what the the low top ones but with the high top ones. I can't be that guy. I can't be the flaw guy that flies in eggs WANNA know who is the king of male dogs right now. I wish I could get him on that. He hates shoes blood. Yeah blood has worn upwards since I can remember like way before cool or thing like both my parents. They had like the tall like halfway up your leg of eggs that they used to walk around the farm and then and to this day like that is my dad's ultimate choice of footwear. He rocks eggs. He flies in them. Honestly he'd probably perform in them if my mom would let him like he lubes them. Feel like billy ray needs to get on stage in some mugs and you know he also needs the sponsorship. Oh he for sure into sponsorship speaking of so. We're recording this before the grammys. I'm doing a pre show so I've been doing a bunch of research. How Old Town road a a for record of the year? The problem is this is a stack the lineup. He's going up against. Let's the grammys. What do you expect I know but like body body bears on? They're not GONNA win much. I love you Justin Vernon Billy eyelash Bagai. That's me tough or `Grande seven rings going to be tough but I thought that was so long ago that that's not GonNa win the her situation hard place. She's cool. I'm rooting for that. Because Rubio mom and her husband had it. Does some help right in that song. So bottom line. All the songs were huge close to being with this list L.. Here's no matter how long this list is. No one can beat eight old town roads record. Yeah they have the have the record for the longest holding spot a number one ever compete with that. Yeah you're right you're right Khalid's on their the Liz Oh and post Malone and Swaley so I think you're right. I think that's a good call. I think that Old Town road is GonNa win in record of the year. I don't know if he's GonNa win album of the year though now. I think that I think bill or Lizard is going to win album of the year ending named Billy. I will clean up pretty good this year. Yeah I agree not here super exciting. Please tell your dad. That won't see him. Well maybe I will build a carpet. But it's it's hard to miss you know. I know guess who decided to walk the carpet. Noah already was Tisch. It's amazing. I can't wait to see your look. I can't either. She says you know. She claims that she does. She hates attention. She hates getting getting dressed up. She hits the whole process of getting ready Blah. But she does this. We're she'll be like I'm not going out long get dressed up and then the day of shall decide to go. I was talking to yesterday and she was like. I think I'm going to go and just walk the carpet and I'm not going to sit in the audience. Like Noah can do that. That's what she's doing well dealer for you to see my look. It's a bold one. must say Maceo right now. You know what this is the time to be bold. The grammys are the ultimate time to be bold red carpet. All right. I'm going White Jack Jack who yeah. Yeah you're GonNa Look Very Tan and white. No but I've lost my Tan. I have lost my Tampa returned to me really early and white makes you look more Tan. I think you'RE GONNA look bear ten. Well I'm excited about it. You WanNa talk show or what I think it's you I don't know. Oh I did. She actually buckle up your seat belts frozen hose. You're listening to your favorite thing. PODCAST wells buckle. Oh your seatbelts is really. We've really embraced really embraced. It's quite nice excited about the show. Today we are going to have well someone that everyone wanted to be the bachelor but didn't become the bachelor of Mike. Johnson will be on the show a little bit later. You had a little crush on my Johnson. Let's just say it didn't you. He's super good looking she. We're good looking guy. Seemed seemed really. Nice Yeah Yeah big crush. He's really cute. I met him ever so briefly at Iheart festival this last year. He was standing out there during hiring miles performance and I got to say hi to him so he seems really nice. The after watching this week's bachelor episode like I feel like Mike can have two thoughts. Here he can be like mad. Dodged a bullet. Peter is drowning in. This looks hard or or he's probably like I should have picked me after watching this big episode on like it get a little bit of a backbone Peter. Yeah that's my one thing is like all those women smell blood in the water and they know that they're able to you kind of make them feel crappy if these things were in a vacuum singular things that will be the focal point but they are able to have a scapegoat for all of it. I just feel a little vindicated because my hot take last week. was that La Eliah how you say your name was was kind of being bullied and then you see this week that like you made up not knowing her lady you know all right so then what are your thoughts about about F- Four. Everyone is turning on him. There's usually this whole unspoken rule of the bachelor can do no wrong or the Bachelorette Bachelorette can do no wrong. You know what I mean but this year the season the girls are turning on him. He kinda deserves it. You think so Kinda. It's just he he. He makes moves that someone would normally do like giving Sydney that rose after she called that girl out like you said you said it was like rewarding bad behavior. It was like that I don't know just the whole back and forth on everybody and for me I just don't understand why get so hung up this early on one person because I mean if I were there and he was all hung up on this elaine situation and spent the entire date with her and making her feel okay and giving her. The rose goes after he'd sent her home and there's so many other women left like I would feel I would feel the way they do and I honestly it's like if you WanNa land that bad dad just frigging picker. Instead and everybody'll I don't know in his defense I think he's like I got bad information. And that's not fair to myself and it's not fair to a Laya. Sorry if you guys all piled on that girl this is what you get that moment in the rose ceremony. When what's what's the girl's name the that made up the store that didn't know Elaine? What's her name? I don't even know name Victoria Right. And she's like only WanNa talk to you. I know I didn't want to do this right now. I don't want to sit down if I were like all right. Then get the fuck Outta here because I would tend to both home. Yeah other because you said you didn't know her dude and then kind of I just went to Vegas together. You guys are both lying to me. So you know sent him both home. Get them both out here. You know what I mean. Yeah maybe so. If we learned anything Pizza Nice guy kind of being the astle that would just be super confusing. Guess he said it a million times like as long as you are super honest with from jump street than we're good and I'd be like Hey Victoria you've fucking wide so you don't get to be upset here. SISTER OKAY IF ANYONE GETS TO BE UPSET. It's me because I don't see everything you guys do. So I'm musing. You guys to tell me what's going on and if you don't want to be here because you don't want her to be here great but tell me that but don't make up stuff that that really kind of like I don't know why I was like Dude Center home right now if you have that attitude Didn't like that in doing that. Thing of like this is maybe a bad analogy. She but you know when you get caught cheating. The person that gets caught cheating than turns on the other person and the makes it about them. That's what she did to him like you. You got caught lying to him and now your mad called projection for sure. I didn't like that I don't either. I like I like I said I mean I feel like I would have been like you know what y'all both a home because years you're just causing too much crap but here's the other thing my whole thing with the Laya is when that many people don't like someone and have a problem with someone. There's there's adding that's A. That's a sign that something you know what I mean like. That's a red flag like you. Don't WanNa be with someone. That has a hard time getting along with other people. I mean that's just something. There's a flaw in someone's character when that many people don't like them and that would be the reds. I wouldn't have been like. Oh One person said you're a liar and they don't know you know you're saying you do go. Oh home I would. I would say listen if this many people have a problem with you. That's a red flag to me and that's where my concern. I feel that and like I feel like that's what Sarah is saying to. Let's just start start from the beginning. Everyone from Cleveland is like fuck you guys. They're Harrison's like we're going to in Cleveland Ohio and they're like yeah coke okay. My favorite thing about the other Victoria Dettori or something he gets in the plane by the way now come some convinced that they pick Peter because he makes it so much easier for them to get people places for dates because he can fly them now for sure you know on private pilots like it'll be fine. I'm like this a a lot of work for me guys. Yeah so they're in the plane. Look there's an amusement park and Victoria's like I love the museum are and then wait. Are Those Roller coasters. And I was like what the fuck do you think are at museum parks amusement. I'm in part because you've been to and I'M GONNA go ahead and say it and I want to be the first one to say the chase rice for Bachelor. You are insane chaser bachelor. The problem is never after what they do this time you think so. I don't know I'd Google something about it. And a radio interview popped up that he had done after filming it and he was just saying that a guy hate reality TV. I'll never do again. Because I had no idea that girl was going to be there and they'd no one told me and I was just totally put on the spot and he didn't sound happy about it. Love it though so good. I mean it's the best thing in the world. Yeah the best the best part she fucking yeah knows all the words and he says you know this Said Cool to Peter afterwards than he was cool to her it actually I ah I I was like. Is this just some chick. He hooked up with a couple of times they're making the storyline but it's actually dated dead. It's weird the interview. I I heard him do. I'm pretty sure he said that they'd only been on like one or two dates. But she's straight up says he's my ex-boyfriend that's a classic to classic. Where girl girl is like? Oh yeah we were boyfriend girlfriend dudes like a few days. You've heard that story bunch So it's probably that situation but she handled it pretty well. Well I mean what are you supposed to do like I feel like I would criticized her more if she had blown up the entire day had been like an stopped everything and made it really dramatic and you know and been like no. He's my ex. I can't do this. I can't do this like if she had pulled that card. I feel like I don't know should have been criticized more. I felt like all she could really do kind of go along with it. Lena let the performance be over over and then bring it up later. which is what she did? I guess she said one thing that like kindness stuck in my craw. which was you know why the things that and she was like like I didn't like his lifestyle and I wanted to see things how things work out with you which means that was really really close to around the time that like they were trying to get her to come on the show Which means to me? There's a little bit of. Did you break up with them because you had the opportunity to go on the Bachelorette and you know get a bunch of instagram followers. And you know all that kind of Zef like is that why you did it. 'cause if you did that then there's a little bit of wrong reasons. Their fair share by the way. There is a lyric. I don't know chase rice. You know but then that that song he sings there is a lyric about Santa's pub and by the way we've talked about so much on this show I was like Oh cool. Okay I like this. That's what I was like. Okay Chase Rice. The Bachelor knows about Sales Bob. I like his music a lot. Actually he he lives here. I mean I see him around town a lot. He's always in midtown hanging out but I thought that was cool too. I heard that Santa's public. Yeah so a Laya Eliah allure comes back and he asked her back and in calls out. Whatever her name is Victoria? Elliot does the thing that like. I kind of love. or She's like Oh. Yeah by. The Lake Victoria athletes totally. Didn't chase rights before she came here and it's all over the Internet. She's the vehicle for that information. Having to get out you know. So here's the thing like it has to get out right. It sounded like Peter is not going to say anything thing and it sure as hell sounded like Vittori was going to say thing that information needs to go to the girls right degree more drama of course it has to get also like everyone needs to know but what annoys me about. It is if that had just come out like on my season. They had like magazines out. When one day and did was Vinnie's Barshop and I was getting my haircut and Eric was reading through the magazine? We've fat and there's an article about how Joe Joe had just broken up with their acts acts like inbetween doing shows and made us question Joe Joe's intentions and all that kind of stuff and that's how they got that information out for us funny he's had to come out and if this information hadn't it come from. The pariah of the group Victoria would be under severe scrutiny. But because it came from Eliah. Elaine allure. She gets to pile on to her instead of taking. You know accountability for the fact that you're dating the do two months before he shot cure. You know I hear you say everyone unlike or so. It means some of that or character but it's also like such a convenient can't scapegoat. Everyone's able to like all their bullshit can be attributed to her now. Yeah so am I longer Fall Victoria P. Well it's because is a lay as a liar and she's coming back and she's using this platform to create drama. You fucking light. When you're dating this guy bef- right before you came here? Well you know what if only because a lay Elliott told everyone that everyone knows it wouldn't have been an issue. That's not her information until I was GonNa tell everyone no you weren't. It's like one of the things that you you chase rice right here on the shell sorry fat year insane. Whatever I look this episode every episode things is fantastic? It's a very dramatic this year also slowest Soapbox Derby in the history of Soapbox Derbies Hill. That was a little random. Why guys very helmets going six miles an hour? They were like pushing themselves. Anything else about the bachelor and I can't really remember it was like to be continued about something. What was it? The liberals are mad at him. And he's like I think we're gonNA leave everyone's noggin leave. They want that TV time. Of course we've just seen so much about a very small handful of girls and there's just so many girls left that aren't getting any TV time and we were just not getting to see them at all. which is such a bummer? My Girl Kelly. No one knows anything about her yet. Except that she's he said she had a decent Armand football but I don't even know she did. Were you shocked that they were playing tackle football exit annoyed me because when we played our football day we played two hand touch. Yeah lease play flag football because I I don't know the girls have really like had bruises and stuff as pretty insane dude. It was so funny. They all look like they're football team in comparison the you know due to NFL to NFL. Guys and Peter who's very tall yeah fucking. TV gave but they had the producers. They they know what they're doing though because they wore those girls out so that when he went into that date after whatever. The data's is afterwards that no one got time with him. I mean everyone was very upset. It was probably like a really good move on the part. Also what's wrong with your back. Lady let's Glenochil though they never really explained that. Okay so honestly I feel like a producer was like hey pretend your back hurts to hang out with him so that and then they wanted. That's all the matter did On on our date of that Derek City strained his calf muscle was and do it. Do it and then Freakin. It was totally fighting. Sam Bag all of us. We are so mad at Derek that day so mad holding out hope the Hannity comes back and an you are of course. Did you see where Jennifer Aniston said. Hannah can go home now. Like Canada's not need to come back but Jennifer Aniston pretty pretty you crazy when Jennifer Aniston is talking about you. Pretty Cool anguish. paltrow yeah is a fucking phenomenon. Man's crazy okay. I think that's enough Bachelor Doctrine Damn again tomorrow with Mike but yeah for Mike. I'm almost won't be like who is is like on your list of ladies to meet in paradise you know okay. We talked about last week but I finished Aaron Hernandez dock and fantastic. It's so sad. CTE's the real thing giant hole in your brain. Listen scary very and it's also messed up with like the sisters ones dating Aaron Hernandez and once. They didn't Odin Lloyd. That's stop and kind of just sad when I was watching with Sarah's like this is a very good example of why it's so important to have like a really stable and healthy household uh-huh you know and Sarah's like an one that's like very accepting of sexual orientation and I was like really what do you mean. That didn't even cross my mind. You know his father being like so like homophobic. Almost I think messed him up a lot share. You know you have some serious self loathing stuff. It's just a sad but it's just really well done and if you haven't seen the Internet is doc go check it out. Oh Yeah I liked it a lot to also the circle obsessed a net flicks. I gotTA start. It is beautiful is it really. I agree and I don't like just ask God. I don't even aren't so ashamed of myself for loving the circle but okay here. We are so if you don't get what you love about it. Okay so the circle is a a bunch of people move into this apartment building the to create their own avatar like their own profile. Right So you can either be yourself yourself and then issues pictures of yourself or you can be a catfish and you can choose pictures of other people at the end of that. You want everyone to like you. The most it's very social media. It's it's just sad. Seven people come into a house. They choose their avatars and then they can start talking to one another. But you can't see the other person it just through text messages and Emojis hashtags and stuff gotcha. Do they ever see each other. And so what happens. Is They live a day. They talk to everyone at the end of the day. They rank each person from like seven to number one and the two top people are the influencers so people who get the highest votes. It's become the influencers and those two influencers have to text messages with one another and decide who gets blocked and who has to leave the circle. Okay at the last one you get a hundred thousand dollars okay. So it's like a mix of big big brother survivor and Black Mirror yes exactly everyone's kind of fellowship. Everyone's like trying to play like what's how. How do I answer this question to make it so by people don't are mad at me about it or whatever whatever like oil like what would like? There's one guy who's pretending to be his girlfriend he's like what would rebecca say. We're back say here. Okay first of all there are three people people who are just obsessed with okay okay. Now I've seen more of the show. I'm change because I tweeted out that Choubey with my man but guess what Bro Joey. A buddy is Magai all right. I WANNA Brody Joey. I want him to be impaired ice with me. I want talk with him. I want him on this show. Bro Joey let's get him on the pot. We gotta go on then. A shoe bomb Choubey is like the sweetest nicest kid in the world and then there's Sammy who looks exactly. Jackie Burkhart. WHO's super sweet? Sarah and I were watching the show and I turned to her and I go. You know I really only like the people who are being themselves people who are cashing. I can't stand and she was like I was thinking the same thing. I'm really hoping that that is the the idea of the show to prove that being yourself is always better than trying to be someone like that. Yes it's like one other shows you watch and you're like I shouldn't be watching. This shouldn't like this. This is what kind of what's wrong with the world but a body Raleigh Joe. He is the best jam so anyway to watch even watch it give it like three or four episodes. Just do it all right all right you got. Have you watched the outside yet. I'm caught up. You are caught up. Okay good. I love it It's like it as much as you like the book it. Yes I think so. Okay I think Jason Bateman is doing a fantastic job with that. I was watching a the behind the scenes thing and he was like. I've always wanted to do watch. Yeah he was like. I've always wanted to Stephen King film because Stephen King has specific shots and filters and like tone that like he's like I've never worked with before and I wanna make create like a very Stephen King looking well. This is a miniseries that once. I heard him say that I was like kind of watching for it. And I was like Jason Bateman. Just really good at this. You know like it definitely does have the feel of it or a carey or shining shining like those. They're like very specific shots that you see. You're like Oh yeah. Totally Stephen King shot but what do you think. Can we say a spoiler. Can we warn everybody. Not that I'm or is that not a good idea. I think if you'd say spoiler you need to say spoiler so if you don't like this skit for three seconds okay. Yeah so we're I'm GONNA say something that's GonNa GonNa be a spoiler if you haven't seen at least episode two so fast forward like a minute if you don't want to hear so I couldn't believe that they it key that Jason Bateman die is episode to. Yeah well I mean. I knew that because I read the book but I know that's crazy I mean he's I know they still showing them when they show like the footage evidence in flashbacks into that. But I mean he's not even in it anymore and he was the star. I know that's the only role he could've had because he's got a director that's true Sarah said some name like there's very few people that do book can do both the entire thing and when I found out that he was going to be going to be playing that character I was like. Oh yeah that makes total sense. That's so crazy and you know what it was so subtle that he dies like they really don't make a big deal about it. My I was talking to my mom and I was a K.. Are you caught up. She was yeah episode. Three was kind of boring and I was talking about. She was Jason. Bateman wasn't at all I was like mom. He died last episode she was like what Nixon excellent even catch it. I mean it's a very important part of the book an important part of this show but his you know his last words generally if you've committed a crime your last words are you atone for your sins on his last words. I didn't kill that kid as a big thin. That's in the book. That's the thing that makes the detective be like question at this can't be. Yeah but I'm the outsider is phenomenal. It really isn't loving it loving it feeling good right now. You know why why. Last night I cooked a hiller meal. Had some Parmesan Schick in from hellofresh.

So I watch on Hulu Hulu just like POPs up and says Right Watch next episode and clicked on it and then I watched it and that was rolling through. I realized that there was actually. I don't watch station. Nineteen but it's kind of a series series that was spun off of Grey's anatomy and it's got a lot of the characters in it from grey's anatomy and what they did was that that season Premiere for station. Nineteen eighteen was like a duel episode with the Grey's Anatomy cast that. I was supposed to watch before he watched the technical first episode of Grey's Anatomy. So if you haven't if you watch grazing haven't seen this yet and make sure you watch the station. Nineteen episode I or you Miss Things and I wasn't super confused when I skipped it but you just you miss is crucial content. So make sure you do that. The whole Internet upset because Dr Karev is no longer on the show and they don't I mean they didn't show his exit on this episode. Like how are they going to explain him being gone. I haven't done it yet. And I'm just so confused. Wife is over here. Like fostering a baby in Elliott Alex's in so his mom and whatever and it's just like are they going to let them drift off into nonexistence. I don't really understand. That was like listening to a a different language. You can't really because you don't watch it but anyway I love grays but I'm sad about curbing gone and I'm curious to see how they make him go because everyone kind of thought this episode the season Premiere or whatever it is. It started off because of a car accident like a car. Crashes into a bar and everyone was like oh was he in the bar and Dizzy Z.. Deny that way. nope wasn't in the bar like they still haven't explained it. I don't know what they're going to do. So should people watch it or yeah if you love graze upgrades no matter. What like how many seasons how you been on Tanya and Becca show yet? I honestly this leash. I should probably like their whole team. Seasons of Grey's anatomy. Like if you've watched this long you're going to keep watching no matter what there is the `nother show on HBO other than the outside of that. I'm very excited about that avenue. Five Space Captain Ryan in Clark of Avenue Five tries to get along with others in the space tourism industry avenue five okay. It's a comedy that was horrible. I Know Synopsis Comedy. Got It so it's a giant spaceship. Cruiseliner Hugh Laurie. Who is from like house is the captain of the ship? Josh Gad who is in like everything but like I don't know Olaf in frozen or like he was the original Person Person Book of Mormon. You know what I'm talking about frigging hilarious. He plays the AH centric. Billionaire inventor almost like an Elon. Musk but kinda stupid crazy okay. Great Zach Woods who was in Silicon Valley. He's like the PR person on the ship. So I'll just kinda give there's only been one on episode but it was so great. They're flying through space and trying to fix something on the outside of the ship. Something happens the main engineers outside trying to fix something on the ship and something happens ends and they they like a reverse the gravity and everyone like flies over like the wrong side of the wall. And they're freaking out right in that moment change their course horse because they changed the gravity a little bit also in that moment the main engineers outside trying to fix something gets killed and so now the space crews that was supposed to take a couple of months months. They're now stuck there for three years and everyone is freaking out because well hugh. Laurie's the captain. I guess there was like one instance on avenue three where he saved. Everyone's life and he's like I didn't say everyone's lives. There was a fire in this. Progress came on their stop. Telling me that I'm a hero and you didn't figure out how to how how to fix it and he's like I don't even know why the ship I'm an actor. Miguel main engineers the guy who knows how to fly their ship. Where's the main engineer? And he's like he's floating now. They're dead my gosh. It's gotta be honest with you. I don't think this sounds like my kinda show because you don't like comedy because you hate life but but it is so funny so avenue five Lord. I'm telling you okay I'm telling you just give it a watch Mostly you know what I'm excited about what. I saw a preview on a commercial. I on who actually for you. They're turning the call of the wild into a movie for. Yeah you should watch the trailer. It looks like it's going to be phenomenal okay. I love that book is a kid loved. Abdul looks really really good. Does call the walls Jack. London and I love Harrison Ford so much favor books as a kid. Did you ever read my side side of the mountain. Yes yes I did. What bowe tell me what is about? WHO's this kid who like basically runs away from home hose and like lives off the grid the on this mountain and he builds his own little shelter in underneath this kind of hollowed out tree? He somehow like figures out a way to to train a Falcon Kintu like hunt for him and yeah just like all about this kid. Living off the grid by himself to that was a great book. Sounds like the movie the into the wild that I love but instead of Lurch Yeah instead of rate Alexander mccandless grads great secret book too but also like that. I won't end sadly whereas Myself Mountain I think is a is a happy ending kids. That's good yeah into the wild like I don't cry ever watch movies never and I cry every single time I watch into the while at the end word said speaking of books. I got a new one bro. Yeah Oh my God. It's called before she knew him written by Cater Peter Swanson Samsonite. I was way off or the thing from the hugely talented author of the kind worth. Killing comes exquisitely chilling. Take Nick of a young suburban wife with a history of psychological instability whose fears about her new neighbor could lead them both to murder hen and her husband Loyd have settled into a quiet life in a new house outside of Boston Massachusetts. Henshaw for Henry Etta is an illustrator and works out of a studio nearby. His found the right meds to control her bipolar disorder. Finally she's found some stability and peace but when they meet the neighbors next door that COM begins to erode as she spots familiar objects split on the husband's office shelf. The sports trophy looks exactly like the one that went missing from the home of a young man who was killed two years ago and knows because she's long had a fascination with this unsolved murder and obsession. She hasn't talked about anymore but can't fully shake shake either before she knew him dude. I'm almost done. I've ripped through with like two days joke. That sound good. It's got I've seen on the shelves that's why it sounds familiar. Mc cited so great. I'm almost done with my book so once I finish it on this trip the today and then maybe I'll grab that one from annexed read. Yeah you know I just wanted to talk about something really quickly. You're get some Some hand lotion that that just will not rub into your skin and then you just have white all over your skin. Now because I buy good lotion Oh okay so emotions shaming me now. How much do you pay for this? Listen like four bucks. I don't know it's just in the bathroom already but I think we've all been there where it's like lotions rubbing like this won't rub in you know it's just like Oh my God what has happened to me. So lotion companies get together. I need lotion. That is my skin can absorb okay. You want to call out the brand of this lotion. You hate so much or no no no. It's not worth it. No you know what okay. Let me give you as a protest. I really really really dry skin and especially in the winter like I'm outside right so much. What when water the horses and everything like that so I do not have Eczema but the only lotion that I think works? It actually hydrates my skin and it rubs in really nicely as lotion specifically for people with asthma which the only difference is that. The Lotion has two percent of COLLOIDAL OATMEAL L.. Or whatever I think COLLOIDAL OATMEAL is. What's in it that it and it just makes it helps so much it makes your skin nottage? It hydrates you and it's nice. She gets on COLLOIDAL. COLLOIDAL was getting a Dang because oh by the way yeah colloidal OATMEAL. What does that mean? Exactly I don't know I'm not even sure if it's a word by the way it is a word. Because colloidal silver is a natural antibiotic first-aid stuff. What color is is it cog neck? Oh like that. I mean you're out here buck for not knowing how to pronounce lingerie or Finance Lasko. But I didn't even call outfit ask I to be honest. I didn't even hear fanatic. There's nothing I can say to defend myself here but I would be. I was reading. Get off of a website and pronounced it the way it was spelled like dumb dumb but also the Cognac is not a word that you hear say often lingerie as a word very often said heard thought about talked about my. That's my sad defense. Williams has a new song. Sure I've listened to you but I love Hailey we're talking about Simmer to make sure between similar cima semester in so many ways to his between semester. Oh my God. That's hilarious first question. Ah paramore no more or what's happening there. I don't think they are. I mean the last album they put out came out so long ago. Let's see all right. So she's just GonNa divert on her own thing okay so it's so funny. When I was a kid we used to say slow down? Now if he would like freak out the freaking lyric is like suppose do you like it. I think it's not a cool reminds me of mm-hmm Santa Graham a little bit totally got a fan of Graham vibe to it. After laughter was their last album came out in two thousand seventeen but that one was the last thing they had put out in a while to have a feeling that paramore's probably more but it's about time Haley put out some music. She's so talented. Your friend. You know what I haven't seen her in years but we grew up together of Notre since I was in tenth grade and or while. They're like kind of like in the height of paramore's popularity. I'd say Ah I used to go on tour with them. When they were on warped tour ride the bus with them for a couple of weeks and hang out and do all that back in my emo kid days when you do call Mike? Oh Yeah we do all right. Let's let's give them a jingle jangle it can be weird because he's cracking. Mr As immigrant. Tell them you can't be one. I talked to my sexy sexy sexy boyfriend this morning and very cute and he was just out there in the Bush working so hard to fix the roads that washed out earlier because of the thunderstorm arm he was like all sweaty and his work. Clout Fed is uniform. Looks very hot. Hardness Bush losing the only two words. Yes I child. Let's call Mike Big Mike up in a house so we can't say exactly like the exact exact same. What happens when you live with someone for a month on a beach? You just start to figure out exactly what they're gonna say and got shit else to do. Talk Talk Shit about people right Mike. I don't WanNa make it weird but I'm going to immediately. I don't know if you know this but brandy used to have a gigantic kantor crush on you did you were my favorite from your season. Bird is honestly no paradise was terrible. I'm like all of the terrible credit from Paradise Lake. Everyone else and I wasn't terrible. Terrible some just like being sane and and not giving to shits about the drama. I wouldn't use the word terrible for that though. Yeah not to make it weird but yeah so you missed out. Big Time. That was your point was to make a weird. Yeah I know but what we called you. He was like desilva crush on. Mike and I was like doing me wrong. Mike is so cute but I am dating may not and I just love so much and he was so cute to me this morning. So this so shout out. What's his name next? We'll know just shut out to you. He is he is a crazy name. His name's reinhard. He's the South African and South African friends. Listen to this podcast. I have to be really careful. What what I say? These days Yohe gotTa Diem from some grow from South Africa. She was like. I don't WanNa be rude. You overhear it was cool. You should go south. African girls are stunning. Tim Tebow just married a South African girl. I know that. Hey but she is going into digging for Tim. Tebow finally busting that got my boy and some love and by the way that was. That was such an interesting being dichotomy in the Aaron Hernandez movie. Because you have Tim Tebow. Who's like this God fearing saint of a man who is good friends? Friends of guy who's affectively was killing people. That was such an interesting twist to the whole thing like. Are you watching the bachelor. Of course I've gotTA show the Peter. Peter let's let's just say like a lot of people wanted you to be the bachelor you did not as Derek I wanted I wanted to be the Bachelorette I'll give you that. Yeah because obviously you have a relation. Dairy is awesome and he did go through. A tremendous has time on paradise. Yeah that was really my my whole thing was also derek was my roommate on the Bachelorette like we've been through a lot. I just thought that he handled themselves really well in that situation and Derek here by the thing. Derek can't ever fucking window shows like he like constantly swings and misses and I'm like can someone give this guy is dead Eh. That's the only thing I wasn't worried about you. We I was hearing like Demi levato rumors and stuff. I was like mikes good but Derek. They're going to be a little forever. But I do love you. I think you'd have been a great bachelor but Nasr whether the deficit thing but don't Lori there's always paradise again we can. We can still make this happen playwright but let me ask you this because we were talking about before we called you after seeing all the girl roll like those that have been your girls right. If you're the Bashar now seeing it would you wanted to have been the bachelor. Girls are a little bit taller in have a little bit more meat on him. Five one in smaller in like ninety pounds or less. I'm not really like you could be gorgeous in vase I'm six four to twenty twenty. You know it just doesn't go late now. It's okay. Well we still love him. Yeah I I mean. Short skinny girls need love. And to all right if you go to the club together because like we would have two totally different the things that we go after. I like my best friend. Yeah exactly I would pay so much money to see you and well go to a club and hit on girls. No offense Sarah. Ah want him to really do that. But like in my mind. That's great scenario. I mean which is became. He drinks. I would yeah. I'd be getting drunk. But man like the two smiles on us. We would kill it in the club. We were killed would had also by. This comes to shocks everyone. I was good at going to bars and stuff hidden on checks. I was good at that because I can tell you I can talk to anybody. You definitely can't and that's that's all that really matters but like a siphon that like in terms of like their personality what are you thinking. I'm not going to say which three. But there's like three or four have really good personalities. Because it's going to be like a tabloid might like this girl. I've been around the block like maybe six months now is good press. I agree take it from me. Something dumb or press is good press. I will say like I was texting somebody the other day and I was like this is why they didn't choose me. He has a bachelor because Girl get the fuck out here. That's BS I would send a girl home before rose ceremony. If I didn't like her. You Know Peter Right. Yeah here's my thing about Peter I I wonder if he's too nice. I don't think he's too nice. I think he comes across very very nice in incredibly sweet but he knows how to handle himself. He knows how to take charge. You knows how to put his foot down when he called out. WHO's at cine? Daddy called out the other day during the date. That was hilarious. Yeah that's what I would do this very I think he. He plays it really nice but if he gets fed up enough he will put his foot down. Yeah you don't have to say like who your favorites are. Who are your favorites? Who would have ever contestants essence for Peter like who like? Let's because there's different we're not saying like who would you pick as your top three but like who are your top three that you think would be good for Peter. Know their their names. But I would say the girl. Obviously the girl he took to meet his parents Mattie Bro. I watching tease. Who the hell takes the girl home the first day right so thing? She has a really good shot out. Think she's cute for Peter and they have a good personality. Kelly shelter the girl that he met prior wire. Now my thing would Kelly is 'cause she's like a grown woman right is Peter L. handled a grown woman and I'll say that all respect and love Kelly ally playground right and so she could like elevate Peter Right. I think that's a good one. or he said he got. Here's one I would definitely sit home back. She still on the show harassing go. I'm not GonNa say what about Hannah an I think she's really cute really attractive. This is what I'm talking about like for me. Personally I love women I can find beauty but for me. She's just not my style you know she's not my Fav- I think that it's Peter's first thing though can be yeah. I don't think he ends up with her. I think Peter wants a wife and not just a for a couple of months. Okay so hey. Do you want to hear my theory. Three and the non L. was the theory so many times musk. There's something's going to happen because Peter has said that the ending cannot be spoiled which means in my mind that means they haven't filmed the ending yet. Okay okay you see that super tease of crispy and like we just got some information. I just heard about it. And then he like freaks out how this is going to happen. I think he's he's made his decision on who he's going to get engaged to and then Hannah be has hit up Chris and was like hey listen I still have feelings for. I don't WANNA lose them. I WANNA fly out there and fight for them and then it's going to be happy. And the whoever he chooses I think's GonNa happen and it's go ahead of her Hannah situation. I can't wait. And then he's going to make the decision during a live taping to end the show. Dan would be demolished. Hannah and have you seen her stories lately.

This week in Bachelor topics, yes, once again I'll say it for the twelfth consecutive week in a row. The Bachelor continues to fill us with hot topics, somehow some way, but the first one here is one that. Is Sad for me to even read. Aloud it's sad for many reasons and I'll explain why, but will let Ashley Carry cover the story I Our host Chris. Harrison announced that he's grateful for his time with Regis Philbin, in his tinder tribute this according to pop culture dot com obviously Regis Philbin had passed away this week. Yes, so, of course Chris. An Regis were both at separate times. The host of who wants to be millionaire and Chris developed quite a personal relationship with him. He tweeted. We throw this word around too much, but redes- Philbin was a legend, he was a true gentleman and I'm glad I got to know and and I. He was a true gentleman. I'm glad I got to know and TV host. I admired and was honored to follow much like Arnold Palmer. Everyone has a great story and I'm grateful. Have Mine I wish I knew that story was, but I also respect him keeping that private close to his chest Ben. Do you have a riches story I? Do I never. I've never met him in person but you know Kathy. Lee has became a distant friend. I can't. I'M NOT GONNA. Call her close friend, but I was on the today. Show a few times with her and have met her in passing in a few events, and she's always been gracious and great. And that was always a kind of a dream for me because I grew up watching regis and Kathy on. Television and I remember those mornings with my mom being so excited for whatever reason I was home, and should be their coffee and I'd be sitting on the couch and be watching the two of them interact. How good they were interacting with with each other and the guests, and honestly like. If you show like, tell me a name that kind of like. Memorialize is my childhood. It's Regis Philbin because he was just that he just was that person. That like you love to like and you love to like. Hear and learn from. His laugh. I can still here to this day and so even from somebody who's never met him in person I would still like I would still say. I have those region stories just because he was such a part of my life as a kid. Yeah, when you think about a voice fills your home and makes it feel cozy in. That is just to me. Les Rouges Voice. He's one of those people kind of like. Ryan, seacrest regis who else like. Chris Harrison. Yeah and I remember I. Remember on Saturday when it happened, I was like. My Grandma in heaven is going to be very excited about this new member of Heaven Yeah. It's it's true ash. So our thoughts are. With his family and just like I I. Don't know in times like this, and and maybe it's just me but when something passes that we care for so much. It's always nice in a in a way. To remember them in such a good way, and that's how I feel about regis like it's like a celebration of his life, if his impact on me, and so I'm celebrating Regis, but also sad, he's gone he a. he's a very talented, an incredible host, and so hey, we're with you almost from his podcast. Thinking about you and thank you regis for your time spent on television. Well! Onto some bachelor topics to change gears a bit here. obviously we announced. Two weeks ago, actually came out with the kind of breaking news that the Bachelorette was going to start filming well now. We're getting headlines about this filming. The headline reads this who has already been cut from season sixteen of the Bachelorette an investigation this according to e online dot com. So Ben when you weren't here last week, Ashley's by Van. I spoke about how the cast will not consists of the forty two guys that we initially broke down. That is way too much to handle as you eventually to yeah. So once they brought all the guys down to Palm Springs. It looks like they eliminated a hefty amounts These guys will have never met. Clare And a couple them in this supposed group based on. In some cases only instagram. non privatized so basically you know how when you go on the show you. You have to privatize your instagram back in our day. Did you even have an instagram? Not when I did the bachelor, neither did jared but when I did the Bachelor I did. Okay so then when I was on the Chris Season I came up I didn't make mine private for some reason, because I heard that that wasn't good enough. This was like the rumor so I created a very weird username, so it didn't have my actual name on there, but I like was like Ash. Nicole or something like that anyway. You're supposed to make your instagram privacy. It stays, and there is a handful of guys who went from being privates. At the beginning of the week to public. After filming. was about to begin and some of these guys. I am shy like honestly mind blown. Why if they supposedly if they supposedly? Aren't there anymore in never got to meet Claire. I'm I'm shocked. one of them includes Chason, which is the guy that I had on my show, the sutras, our super handsome, thirty one years old from San Diego from what I know, a romantic and a gentleman Zach Jackson the thirty seven year old from WHERE'S HE FROM UTAH? The thirty seven year old from Utah Yeah that I was obsessed with, and even went on record and tweeted would be the winner of this season. Wait that guy. Your favorite on I'm GonNA win. I'M GONNA win. Ashley. That's INCR-. Like what do you think's going on? What would you spend you know? Part of me thinks that like they had friends reactivated, or maybe they're trying to the producer's like. Go ahead and reactivate your instagram just to throw these fans who are doing deep dirty detective work off the trail. We'll see if they have activity. These guys that I'm going to list right now including Chason and Zach. Have not posted on instagram again, but have made their PU-. Public, so it's Peter I'm GonNa go with is a very Greek last name. It's Peter Away. This is a little bit of a spoiler. Right like we should in some way. Yes, because we're saying, they never made the show so like. It's a spoiler yet. It's not. Yeah because I. Don't know how they got eliminated, but it could be a big deal like if we watch the show back. This could have been a huge elimination night one. I guess that is correct. So Peter G. is the guy who was from Boston that we were like Oh. Yeah, he is a real estate in order he's. He has an MBA from north western. He's an MBA from northeastern. Seemed like he had his shit together, and he is also been elim supposedly cut. AJ. Who was oh. Aj was the first guy that I said was a nerd bomber. If you guys remember, but if you look at his instagram. He He looks cuter. But I also will say his bio says future. Stay at Home Dad. A. Way To put pressure on a way to set the standards. Early I I guess Hey I'm always four prevent like preventive communication so preemptive communication so at least he's. He's letting everybody know how he feels early. Dale looks to be eliminated from the process. And he is an NFL athlete turned model and host. He is also associated with the Special Olympics. I believe this is one of the guys that we said we looked very friendly. Oh, no, this is one of I'm. This is one of the mind boggling guys. this is that gorgeous black guy with the green is from South Dakota him. Yeah I think I he is. Favorite is on nine. Actually something's going on. I'm telling you like. Why are so many people that we thought were front? Runners didn't even make the first night supposedly. There's to pass here that I'll speculate all right one clear starts out rough when it comes to her judgment of men. That's one that she just got rid of some of the best dudes right away to. I got three pass to is the producers are playing a big trick on us. This is all a part of the shows. Plan is to get you and I talking about these guys leaving and they're still there hanging out having a great time or three. They never made the show. They never even walk foot into the show. They're never even planned to be on the show. And Clare had nothing to do with any of it. Just they never were there. which would be almost as weird to me as clearly. These guys go night one. There's this Guy Robbie and he has pictures golfing skiing in the wilderness, being super active, and he is abused as a is a cute. He and he was supposedly eliminated all I will say his profile could be a little bit. Leading to being there for the wrong reasons, he's been at the G. Q. Meta the year party. He looks like he's done. Some acting and modeling definitely modeling, so who knows? Baseball player shirtless picks. That's always. That's always a positive sign. Yeah, so maybe they were trying to eliminate wrong reasons that first week, but the last two guys that I need to make mention of that. You're going to freak out. Is. Tyler Smith Tyler's missile thirty six year old, who Grainger Smith's brother, and he was from Texas and you thought he was in the top three of yours. Quite heck, this is going to be a bad year for me. And then there was also. Alex Twenty eight year. Olds the very friendly looking at calling Collins. Young blood who was thirty and ten Yang who is thirty six. Well, these guys, apparently not around. Summarize all of this we will never. We're first off almost listeners. We're never never gonNA tell you who is eliminated from here on out. This is the last spoiler we're going to give. This is not even a spoiler as much as is just confusing to why these tremendous men are back on instagram. Did they sneak phones in? Did they? Are they back home? Is this a trick for the producers? This is a mystery that we all need to solve together on. Read it. You're good at all this stuff. Find out what's going on. We will never tell you again. WHO's eliminated? But this is a mystery that we are going to dive in together on to find out what is happening, but the summarized the headline. From what we see clear has either released or the show never involve. Some of our favorites based on simply the pictures Ashley. This next story is sweet. It's nice. Bachelors are aligned junior gives Lauren. Burnham special ring after going through. What they're calling some of their darkest times this according to the online. Yes. It's been about two months and they announce that they had a miscarriage. So you know. Of course, this is going to be a dark time for them. And are a gave her a beautiful ring. An Infinity Diamond Ring that she says symbolizes that they will always have each other through the darkest times and she says if you've been here for the last couple months, you'll know that we recently had a period of that so I think it's safe to say. He gets husband of the year. Yeah, he does really sad. It said you know he gets husband of the year. She gets wife of the year. This is tough on both of them right I mean it's. It's so sad and and we've hear about this often of these scenarios and I'm sure unless you're in it. You don't know how hard it is, but here's one takeaway. That I had after reading this article Ashley. How. How cool is it? How? Spectacular. Is it that this show brought two people together? Who can support each other well and love each other well through the hardest time they've ever had I mean. These people like Ari and Lauren are tremendous partners to each other, and isn't that what we all dream of in our marriages, and in our relationships or just in our friendships, even that we'd have somebody there besides who lifts this up through the darkest moments absolutely, and there's another bachelor couples going through a very similar thing. Alley Fedotowsky opened up this week about her debilitating miscarriage She had no idea it would affect her as hard as it did. she is one in four, and so as Lauren of women who have lost a pregnancy. One in four will experience a miscarriage. alley goes into detail on her instagram. About what that day was like. Sh-. It's very traumatizing She was in her bedroom, and she passed the uterus sack, and she said she just sat there for hours looking at it. and. She said that she'll never be able to experience. The pain of somebody has stillbirth or lost a baby at twenty weeks or somebody who has never been able to conceive is still trying after years, but she said that she found it so shocking that her experience affected her as much as it did, and that her husband is also surprised at how hard it's been for the two of them. It's Yeah I. Mean is not really words. You can put around to other than You know. The hardest times it feels like you know even reading this. These articles is I know. There's people out there listening who've been through. Similar situations and I'm sure. When somebody that we've seen on TV or somebody that we've. Watched and learn from or just gonNa live life with when they go through something similar. It helps us know that we're never alone. No matter what scenario but I also think like reading this just like the strength. Of these couples of these humans Inspires me personally I just incredible people who I'm always learning from. And yeah, it's just it's I dunno at. How do you feel like it's? It's always impressive to me. When through the hard situations like this, they also choose to open up to us and be vulnerable so that we understand that we're not alone, and they also tell us their stories like I appreciate that he oh, yeah, that's what I was going to say Up until the past couple of years, barely anyone spoke publicly about miscarriages, and as you can hear that stat one in four women experience it and I think it's super important. That if you're willing to share. To do so so that it can just bring comfort to other women who are experiencing or have experienced it. It's absolutely nothing to be ashamed of, and that is one of the most prominent feelings these women have. But. It's really it's nothing you did. It's just that. It happens, and it's. It's. It's a loss that you'll just. But I won't be at I. Don't know I don't know. It's tough, well Let's just take a second in policy here. A. Little break! We come back.

She said it felt very natural and that she loves the fact that their relationship has no like strict timeline on it that they are just easy breezy, not You know not rushing to make like take the next step in anything. They're just enjoying each other. And what's yes? She I was GONNA. Say She's planning on moving still and they're okay with long distance. She's GonNa move to either Nashville or or la and I know that when it's not Cova Times. Chris splits his time between La and Nyala, so we'll see where she was. She decides there I might be over analyzing this. But you know it's kind of cool about this relationship so far. That they've been really private S. that's actually you hit on the head because you know people in the bachelor world. As soon as something happens in their life, it's an opportunity creative store your headline like I get that, but for them to be so quiet means that they're trying. To make something actually real without you know getting the attention from it and for me. That just shows that this could be something good. Yeah me, too, and as much as I want them to come on our podcast. Really spill the goods. Part of me is also really respecting the fact that they're taking the relationship seriously, and it's definitely not something that they're using to get attention you know. We en- honesty. We've asked him on the podcast and Chris is a friend. Chris well, obviously, you're on his season, and he's a friend of mine, and they've politely declined every time with not a lot of reason behind it, nor would I push, say why not? That's his deal. Just ask, and they say no, and now I'm like I. Just Am Pretty Happy, said no, quite honestly. It makes me happy for him. Yeah, but you guys don't do another podcast before ours. We're going to be so nice to you, guys. We just want to celebrate you. Ashley before we finish the hot topics. There is another topic that you and I definitely want to talk about Oh my God this one so juicy. Who is essentially? It is Mike Johnson. Who get this that week? That Clare kind of went silent on social. He went silent on social. How did you know this this this? This is what the fans have noticed that. Notice this to you actually don't act like you weren't watching this if And then He. This week saying very suspect things like what come on, give us some details. So he says I just got my phone back from a Corentin. Where what quarantine are we taking phones from Each Other? If you're not in the bachelor exactly and then he goes I'm in a bubble right now and Kovic is extremely high on my radar. Continues to say I guarantee I've been tested more than most and am taking higher safety precautions than most which would allude to the multiple tasks that these guys have had to take wall in their hotel room down in Palm Springs. Way So either. Mike Johnson is in some type of sports bubble. Because there's those bubbles going on okay or he could be. We're saying I'm going to say this APP. You've convinced me. There is an eighty three point four five percent chance that Mike Johnson is on this season of the Bachelorette, but the thing is. He has been a little bit more active on social past week appearing in. Hanna, Hanna and TIKTOK. So. That makes me wonder whether or not he's still. He's still in this process. possibly. He showed up the first week. He filmed a little bit, and then Clare eliminated him, but to add more fuel to the fire Hannah and is in a what looks like we're production trailer. During this Tiktok, which leads us to this headline. From Hashtag Bachelor Graham. And the question is the headline reads this. Are Mike Johnson Hannah an sluice and Jesse James Palmer secretly filming. This doesn't make any sense to me. Bachelor in Paradise. This after Buzz TV Ashley Again I'm going to repeat this because our listeners out there going to be like because that's the way I was. The headliner Czyz are Mike, Johnson. Hannah loose and Jesse James Palmer secretly filming Bachelor in Paradise. All right so I know what they're I know. That, this is kind of a headline for clicks right. They are all in swimsuits, but Jesse Palmer is engaged, so he's not going to be the host of this I mean he's not going to be a part of the show. He couldn't be the host of this bachelor in paradise. By its guarantee you, Ben and especially producer. Amy would know if they are producing VIP on the side of Clare Season and I think there would be more people off social media right now. If that were the case, it's not. They're not filming Bachelor in Paradise. Looking at this, I'm thinking that they are possibly filming a cameo on Clare Season now is Mike there for a cameo. Is Mike going to be there for a group date and then slyly asked Claire to stay Allah. CAITLIN. Because that would make sense the three of them there to have a little appearance, and then I feel like for Mike to join in. We always love the little bachelorette Bachelor appearances from the past favorites. That's always fun to see fun to watch fund. See Him again but house. How awesome would it be for TV if all of a sudden Mike, Johnson come walk through the door group date appearance, the guys jaws drop, and he looks at her and says Clare I'm here to stay baby. Yeah, and because Mike did kind of instagram Hannah's tiktok. I am. I'm not thinking it would be. Out of the question for producers to allow him to have his instagram for a minute or so to throw off Bachelor nation. I do believe that they allow nick to post a little bit when he entered Caitlyn season. And if you guys are wondering what this Tiktok talk about. It's not leading at all in this direction. It's just them saying gee one. It's a frozen a play on the frozen song. You Wanna a snowman it's. Do you want a drink during the day? Yeah, it's it's a nice little. Well. Ashley.

"Here's a paid program on six thirty wwl. This is the time to show on newsradio. Six thirty WWL AV and WWL. AP Dot Com. Welcome to camp. I guess you all know alive Eh. Not Okay been on your put. The call life travel like wildfire good new. I'm Fredricka slow. AOL Call Me. Why everybody knows Ayla fan new All didn't leave them girls at hate to see me Godin Welcome to the show. Got Philip sexton Lisp Afraid Guy. How do are y'all doing today? Everybody Fan Dan. Oh Yeah I've got saw. I'm going to read today Psalm. Fifty the mighty God even the Lord has spoken in. Call the earth from the rising of the sun to the going down there of out of Zion. The perfection of beauty. God has signed our God show come and shall not keep silence of fire shall devour before him and she'll be very tempestuous around about him he shall call to the heavens from above and to the earth that he may get judge his is people. Gather my saints together unto me. Those that have made a covenant with me by Sacrifice and the Heavens shall declare his righteousness forgot his judge himself. See La okay. We got some things we're going to get into today. you've been doing a series on four one K.. A rollover to Ra that kind of thing just talking to people about How to handle their retirement? Plans and Philip you might want to jump back into that. Yeah so Mike kind of touched on it a little bit last week. you know towards the end the show of last week but he didn't get to really dive in Today really wanted to dive in on what a 401k roll over to to an IRA actually is their first cousins in terms of their The the way they're set up before one K.. And an IRA or or basically basically the same type of tax deferred account right. Yeah the way. I like to describe it. I described it to a client like this one time. said it's like I'm used to different vehicles though instead said it's like jumping out of a Ford F one fifty into a Silverado. Fifteen hundred both spent some people with that well especially in Kentucky. We didn't say Toyota. Well well well but yeah. Toyota's that's too. That's up there. That's a fancy retirement. Okay that's doing Improv. Equity stuff but so roll with that. It's a good in our reason. I use use. That analogy is because it's the same style of vehicle. You get the same benefits of the vehicle so you get the tax deferment All that all those kinds of benefits The difference is is the availability of investments. Yeah the doodads once you can actually do inside the vehicle Vehicle vehicle the. Yeah the vehicle they well they both have the same motors. Basically in terms of power power. Yeah right right but when you when you really start looking underneath some of the features of those motors correct correct right. There's there's many many differences and that's that's where you know so when you look at a 401k 401k for example you're limited to the planes options so let's say a company like Toyota writes up their 401k since we usually the Toyota Tundra has the vehicle Let's say they write up their 401k plan and they offer a list of mutual funds. Because that's all that's that's in a four one K.. Options right now Let's say that's that's a list of fifty. Maybe that's what you get to pick from. And it's all mutual funds now when you open up to an IRA you're open up to everything every investment opportunity that you won't just about you can't do like prominently and stuff really depending upon your situation but any stock any bond you WanNa buy any mutual refund. You WanNa buy all then so you you automatically give yourself a foot you know a step ahead of the game because now you can go directly into equity that you want that you run research on instead of picking a mutual fund that hopefully invest in what you're wanting to invest in CA- Scott Call it the toe dipping of investment. Yeah you like that you can put your whole foot in there you can. But you're you're starting to get wet right it it. The investment styles in 401K's are guided for people who are inexperienced in markets and don't do any equity analysis within an IRA you're able to do analysis and Invest Aston things that You know your research might turn up so it set it in. Forget it a try it you put it in there and walk away right And I and it's also set up because we're their mutual funds. It's also set up more for dollar cost average approach to you know one of the things that I have on here like some questions about 401k. Rollovers is you know. Why do it? Well we we've touched on the wise the you know when when when you're no longer with the company for sure well you're you're no longer todd of the company you give yourself optionality around your investments which you know when in your needs Change Ryan need that optionality The next part is when is it available so a 401k. 401K rollover is always available after after you've severed employment right with the company whether it's retirement arment You know leaving for whatever reason Anything like that Another way that a 401k rollover all over is available is what's called an in-service rollover so an in service rollover That a lot of companies make available. Actually you know and it's it's a simple question to ask your 401k provider to if hey available for an in service rollover what that is is that at age aged fifty nine and a half you can while you're still employed with the business that you're employed with you can roll over a portion Whatever's in the the account usually into an IRA? Yeah the best thing about this. Is it gives you that optionality analogy with that portion of money while you're still employed but it keeps the shell of the 401K. Open right to continue to Add money to over over the course of employment because you don't want to give up a company match or anything like that so you still want to have that Shell there but the reason someone would do a potential 401k rollover inservice rollover. While they're still employed is actually. There's a really good reason behind this We always talk about the relationship that you build with an adviser you know and and how it's a marriage to to dive in you know you need Tom to make sure that this marriage is is what you WANNA do. I said Sometimes you need the data data adviser before you decide you WANNA marry him. Well this gives you the perfect option to date an adviser before you marry him because once you retire and you you move your money to an adviser marriage marriage that you know when you don't WanNa be getting divorced three years down the road because the reason you're getting divorced is probably not a good reason reason and so this is this. Is that ability to all right. I'm fifty nine and a half. I'm still GONNA work till I'm sixty six sixty seven however long that may be. I'm GonNa take this money and I'm I'm I'M GONNA move it to this farm manager for a couple years. See how I like it. See how the communication indication goes you know what their what their strategy is and you can make better sound decisions around your retirement that right. Plus you've got somebody that's guiding you towards retirement arm. I WanNA bring a point. We let us take a break. Okay quick it is the Tom Depreciate newsradio six thirty. WIP happening being runaway global spread happening right here for trump's sit should be impeached. No matter where it happens your world happened a lot of things Zafy here get all the information newsradio six thirty. WLA Hi this.

Four hundred and depre- financial dot com six thirty W. L. A. P. Show so Philip mentioned attention that you're eligible to roll over your IRA or your 401k. A pawn separation of employment that. I think it's important to talk a Bat. This there's particularly to our younger listeners. That may not realize this. This happens far too often and I've seen it experienced experienced it with others but let's say you work for a company for four five years. They have a 401k. And you know and you it's time for you to move to the next opportunity in your life and you leave. Well you know unless you contact your employer in go through the process that that money's GonNa sit in that that 401k just lays there will lay there in. It happens far too often for many many many of our younger generation. Or here's something else that I see happen often. It's not good and it's bad. This marriage is she in having a relationship with an adviser and somebody trust trust in Philip and I had this experience just this week marriage wear a little but My Son Autumn Autumn Rain. My son works for Kentucky State Government in Frankfurt in Philip. His Canada being his adviser right in so he printed out his annual stuff and brought it home and said Dad. Look at all the you know. This was what happened this year with all my plans. And and he's doing all these things that Philip is advising him to do within the Kentucky retirement system and that is what is so positive incident. He has an awareness. An education in the relationships. Starting right out of college of making good choices is because here's what a lot of our younger generation do. I saw this happen with somebody. I know very well. He moved change. Companies got that. His retirement was accumulating over five or six years and used it on. He spent the money because they said look. You know you want you. Were you spin it on stuff that he probably shouldn't have done. He didn't know any better because he didn't have that relationship south south. Well we've had people come to us with Three or four 401k's from different employers. Where they haven't that's that's actually that's actually a very scary situation scary example potentially in the future too? Because let's say you're that type of person that doesn't stay longer than two to three years at a place. Well you could get to the end of your career and have ten of these things. Yeah you know an I and maybe only remember six of them. That's right so you get what I'm saying that you know you. It's it's like doc. It's like bank accounts you know you don't the older you get the more you need to consolidate because you end up you know your your heirs end up going. Oh Wow mom and dad had this account over here and it's like reaching into your co pocket and finding a twenty or something like that very very common. It's that's where you know. It pays to have a guide to help you through this but it also you know that that's where the the process comes comes into play Tell you back to the Klay example to he ain't listening is now what time it is all right. I told I told guys visit. You don't really want me to really advising because if I was really really advising him I'd tell him that he just his rents covered right now so while the move out take money and throw it into retirement Gao today. They'll living at home. y'All right it's a good move for that's right. He's he's rocking and rolling into savings world. I promise you that. Yeah but Yeah so you know the next question. So the I've got the WHO. Uh when wearing wow on this 401k roll over the the how to do it so now. You've you're sitting here and you're going. Oh Wow I can do it fifty nine and a half potentially right so the easiest way to do it is you what you need to do is when you go to an adviser or wherever you're going to to roll it into an IRA first thing you need to do. Is You need to open an IRA with the Custodian of the assets. Whoever that may be Here in the pre financial group will use. TD AMERITRADE IS CUSTODIAN So once you fill out the application open an IRA and you have an account number. Then you call your 401k provider so I'll give you a prime example fidelity 401k rollover We do quite we do quite a bit of those fidelity's a big 401k. Provider here in Kentucky They do Toyota's 401K They do do they do the four zero three B plan a four zero three B rollover. UK So there's there's quite a big Quite a bit of big employers visit US Fidelity. Now it's as simple as calling the company what's say fidelity I'm GONNA use him as my example here you so you call the 401K Company. You say hey I question is you know. What's what's my balance? You want to know what your vested balances make. Sure it's it's it's like making sure your bank account lines up with what you think. It is all right so now. All right got the balance available to do a rollover an in-service rollover usually have to be fifty nine and a half. Exactly now. They'll tell you yes or no. Sometimes it's not available in the plant a lot of times it is but sometimes it's not not now then. Okay yes you are. Or let's say you've severed employment you say. Hey I'm I'm I'm no longer employed here I WANNA do a rollover although double check your status and say Yep you're no longer employed do a rollover now there's a couple of different ways that this happens with with fidelity it's very very simple. They process it over the phone about a week and a half two weeks later a check shows up at your house. It's a a check made out to your new custodian for benefit of you. Because you never want this check coming directly to you to were you could end up cashing it because if you cash it. It's all tax. Okay hit Paul's right there. So let's because we're teaching today you're going to have to make sure you request that and you're going to have to have a custodian in place. Correct Philip correct that it's made out to it's made out too well. How do you go Obama that that's where when you open up that? IRA The that's the first step you open up the IRA and you have an account number a a Lotta Times the person on the line at Fidelity or whoever you're talking to we'll say all right what's the account number that this rolling into because you WANNA say you're rolling over into to an IRA. YOU NEVER WANNA cash it out and so because if you cash it out like we said it's it's taxed and that that person's GonNa probably say well well I don't have an IRA to roll it over to right now. I'm calling you. And then the person on fatalities say what you need to get one with are. Are they gonNA say well. Oh one for you right now. Are they going to tell you to go out and talk to somebody they'll tell you they'll open that's right. Yeah that's my point. So you're saying you need to come see us go to end up going to fidelity that's right you know and this is back to the process and this is so important. y'All I mean listeners. Having a relationship or knowing somebody to communicate to about this is credit card very important I would. I'd WanNa do I'd get online. You know and look look research and do all this stuff well. I don't think it's in my best interest talking to a computer. I need to talk to a human being. That will ask questions that maybe we'll listen. Really listen to will list. It's not maybe it's pre. We will listen to what my circumstances are so I can be advised to make the right choice. Yeah well and it's gets back to the educate guide and empower. You go the great thing about this radio show you said today. We're we're Ed's you know we're doing a tutorial or something. I think that quite often. They're nuggets that can guide you whatever your path may be. Whoever were you choose and it gets back to your thing also gathered? You always say which is ask well. Tom Says to ask questions is the first thing and then the other thing is get multiple opinions. I don't just count on what we say. Get a second and third opinion and then then you are empowered to make the decision. That's best for you. You use use line get a third opinion because you better got a second opinion. That that's-that's it's that should be a no brainer. Well we say it often we you know in your got a medical procedure or something. Important like that. You'RE GONNA get more than one opinion and usually three opinions or more. Why not do it with your financial circumstances? Well that's GonNa pay for the medical thing you sure very okay all right so you get on the phone a a Lotta time so like infidelities case. They can process it over the phone. meaning that all the paperwork is done through fidelity over the phone you don't have to sign on any forms or anything like that and bought a boom about being get a check now when you get that check that go again bottle. Boom literally now Click Clack Bang. Click clack so you have sixty days to roll this thing over. meaning that when you get that check you need to get it to wherever it needs to get to very very soon. What happens if I roll it over at sixty seven days? You're taxed on your right your tax. How do you explain what the tax consequences are? So let's say you've got a hundred thousand dollar four one K.. That you're going to roll over and let's say that you get this day sixty seven and you haven't rolled it over and now comes taxable event. You have essentially claimed a hundred thousand dollars on top of what you've already made for the year income. He instead we got a problem and after that we need a break we we do.

Yeah they mail it to you so you may have that step The the next thing that you have to be very cognizant of is is is part of it in a Roth Roth 401k. So if so then you have to have a second account a Roth a roth. IRA right off. 401K Roth IRA because you never WANNA put money in a roth into a traditional. Because I just gonNA screw you all up. You'RE GONNA end up paying double taxes on K.. Explain what Ralph our Ari. The difference between a Roth and traditional is a roth goes in after tax and grows tax free a traditional is before tax and goes tax deferred. So when you take money out of a roth there's no tax consequences. Yeah pure when you take money out of our tradition it is it is tax free that is pure retirement yields. Good exactly now. Now there's also the ability to roll over a 401k to a roth. Ira It's a conversion. Yep explain that you pay taxes X.'s on what you're rolling from a traditional planet original 401k to a Roth IRA right now you have to pay it all in one lump SOM- Yes you pay it out of other sources to you cannot have it with hailed from the rollover money you have to have outside sources of of money to pay this When this would be a good time to do something like that would be? Maybe let's say you're fifty nine and a half and you're going to work until you're seventy and the market is down markets down thirty percent or something like dat now. That would be a good time to do. It lowers your tax consequences than when things start to move back in the positive direction while you're taking tax free growth. That point right walk walk the listeners. Through how they would do that though do they. Do they have to I mean let's say it's four hundred thousand dollars. Our she wants to move to a roth. That's pretty significant tax. Bill do but you want it to wear. The market's down to where maybe it's only two hundred thousand okay and then when you're you're only paying tax because because the market has pushed the value of it down so you're paying tax on a lower number got it when you roll it over over you WanNa have outside sources savings to to be able to pay them. We haven't had. Market's doing that lightly now. A good time to do like that right up the other way that the other the other thing that you would need not just the down market necessarily the other thing you may need to is time Out You know because you you don't WanNA H- you don't want to do this. Conversion at fifty nine and a half and turn around and retire at sixty two because then you you use crushed your assets paying taxes. What you did Now I think this is you. You really need lead. You need to have additional resources available to pay the tax. That would be the true thing to do. Yeah Yeah and that goes down to the last question question on the WHO. What when where? Why wear to do this? So the best place to do this because obviously we're we're we're talking about. What is somebody that can educate you us a depre- on someone that can walk you through the steps what the consequences of of certain actions will be and can hold you know hold you accountable on it and make sure that things are done properly so you need to find some you need to find an advisor adviser that you trust you? We were talking about doctors. Having a second or third opinion. You know you find a doctor that you trust. If you build a relationship with a doctor trust this guy. I trust what he's done his credentials. And that's that's that's how you make a decision Same principle with as a financial adviser you know. It's it's all a matter of building a relationship based on trust and the reason that the trust is there is that they've done their best to educate and guide you through decision making process. Got a really important question that we haven't talked about that. I think many people people will ask and that is what are the fees involved in all of this that we're talking about so from a a FI perspective on moving it out of a 401k. The really shouldn't be any fee every so often a four one K.. Provider her may charge a liquidation. Fear or something like that very small They offer you the I we can expedite the check it to you. But it'll cost you another fifty bucks or something like that. You know all those little nickel dahmer fees but if you just do a base basic 401k rollover over don't don't expedite it 'cause you don't need to expedite. It don't don't do anything like that shouldn't be any fees there now when you pick an advisor to manage the money there is a so as to prevent Andrew Group we charge a percentage of the assets under management management we we charge on a quarterly basis. A fourth of our annual fee comes out each quarter We always bill a quarter in advance because if at any point during a quarter a client left us their pro rated back to the day the unused portion of their management fee. You know it's it's a lot easier to to to do it that way it's simple it's clean. Transparent some people charge you commissions based on on what they what they buy Some people. Let's say you're rolling it over and you're buying an annuity You know that's that's that's a big. I mean by just pay the taxes on at that point. You know because you're gonNA pay a six percent commission seven percent commission right Alfred right off the top and you're going to stunt your growth ellen question about when it's in the 401k plan or the the fees paid on that money by the employer to say a fidelity so the plan itself yes so the plant itself could cost you know four or five ten thousand. How big the plane is I mean? It could cost several thousand dollars to to have to run the plan to to have all the documentation done properly to have everything a third party administrator. Run it I'm Ed is paid by the the company that has the sponsor has the employer the employer so like Toyota or IBM or somebody like that. They're paying that. And that's a big one-size-fits-all huge umbrella with pooled money. uh-huh yeah and then the mutual funds that the plan a lot each one of those we'll have a management fee the associated with them so the fees to be in the 401K. There are fees. It's important you understand that right. I mean listen. Let's it's listeners. There are a lot of cost associated in hidden in a lot of this type of transactions in that this goes back to this business of getting a second or third opinion. Talk to whoever you are but come see us down at debris bring what you've been told well evaluated anyway. We'll give you our opinion because some of those plans are heavy. Loaded mutual funds and whatnot. Correct most of the four one ks that if somebody would have it Toyota or some place defeating fairly low on it so the real advantage would be to come to us to get more equity exposure. Good thing yeah. Allies plan more of a personal plan. Yeah it gives you that gives you that preference to have your money only do what you needed to do. At that time. You know because a lot of times as you near retirement or you're in retirement especially when you're in retirement. You need your money to work for you. Needed to to create an income stream for you. You can't do that really in a 401k. That's right you can't you can't have it. Produce the same amount of income and mutual mutual funds that are available in four one K.. Plan that you can you know. Investing directly in dividend paying stocks interest bearing bonds Things like that to produce the income that you need You know but to do that. You also have to have a heavy amount of research on what you're actually investing in. Yeah yeah because it's gotta pay but that's done by the advisors well sometimes when you say you've got to do I can. Let's see these people at home saying how am I going to research all of this. I don't know anything about this. Don't go to the Internet. Should parts of it. Yeah you can validate and make sure you're comfortable with what what we have told you. Or what the advisers told. You've always got to be your own advocate once again like when you go to the doctor. You've got to be your own advocate and to be your best advocate. You've got to be empowered with good it information right exactly and to piggyback off. What you said I mean you very easily could do this on your own? It will well not ease. He's not easily. You know you would spend a lot of time. It's a forty hour workweek trying to make sure if if you're sitting at home asking yourselves question how am I going to do is how am I gonNA do. Obviously you're probably not the person that needs to be doing it because you're not comfortable with doing it. Same thing prime example. I changed the brakes on my wife's vehicle lash. Yeah it was last year you know a lot of people just take it to shop and you have them change it. Well eyes are wide. I was comfortable with ripping the tires off and taking breaks off and putting the new ones on say a lot of money to save myself seven hundred bucks in his wife still here to tell us another year. I let's take a break here. It is the time to pre show. newsradio go six thirty W. L. A. P. will be right back. I have been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. I love you. Thank you very much our love and prayers. Thank you for rush. I love you so much. Hi this is Tom Debris junior if you have your retirement savings in a 401k or four three B plan your money is in a mutual fund more than like in a mutual fund you invest with a group of people and you are affected by the group with which you invest if they are withdrawing money while you're holding tie your investment performance could be affected negatively at the pre financial group invest every account individuals. That means each client owns his or her own group of security securities which is unaffected by the behavior of other invest. It is not a pool to camp for a free review of your retirement. Investment Holdings called a pre financial natural group at eight five nine two three three zero four hundred and make no obligation appoint also be sure to listen to the Tom. DEPRE- show on Saturdays these from seven to nine. Am That's depre- financial group at eight five nine two three three zero four hundred and depre- financial dot com six. Thirty wwl. Did you. LAPD at least go back on the Tom to pray ratio. Oh okay now. We're going to get into how to become a financial. Yeah I think this is big the talk about because a Oughta people wonder what actually goes into being an adviser So this article starts out says in some ways being a financial adviser is like being being a therapist. You sharing your clients. Biggest life events like having a baby retiring and handling inheritance often tasked with helping them address their fears. Here's like recessions or running out of money. This is part of what makes a career as a financial adviser so rewarding US news and World Report ranked as the eighth best job in two thousand eighteen. But it's also becoming a financial advisor isn't easy. Giving advice to clients is a privilege says ronca our Dorsey Door Centerville a certified financial planner in the District of Columbia. That right they're giving advice to clients is a privilege. Yup Anybody who doesn't think that shouldn't be in this business. Tell your story Philip. Why did you become a financial on an advisor so I became a financial advisor so I wanted to help people there you go? It's that's that's my story. I started out in chemical engineering. I had this big thing. I wanted to make a cure for cancer AIDS or something like that save lives do some crazy thing and and I realized that that wasn't the path for me I set back and I said all right. What are your skill sets? You really go with numbers and and you can talk to people okay. That's to sound skill sets. You want what do you WanNa do. I WANNA help people. What's the best way to help people? With those skill sets well paying popped into my head help them with their money. That's numbers and communication so I got into the business school. UK Started looking around at what what I wanted to do. And I went with finance because I felt like it was a little bit of everything and in four and a half years after that. Welcome to pre financial group. There you go actually. It was like well I if I give give you a job will you quit bothering me. Yes exactly what it was. But what's interesting is he. He he wanted his passion was helping others being being of service and he he chose to be a financial advisor. The first line of this article per giving advice as a privilege. You know you've been called to be of service to your fellow and make a difference in their life and that's what you do is a financial adviser you tell them the truth when they need to hear it right right that you you. You GotTa have those accountability conversation. That's right too big important part of this job. Did I think if you're considering it you must evaluate. If that's your call can you. Can you tell the truth. And can you handle that trite. Because you know it'd be he real easy to not tell the truth to make more money and the other question is. Can you make a living doing this. Has It. Takes it tight. Tom's been in the business. Assist forty years. Forty two years at this point and It it isn't always you know when the markets go up and down. I've been around when he's had many sleepless nights concern. This was before we have the the fee based platform with dividend income which really reduces the stress wrestled. Everyone but when it was commissioned based and coming up with how to make your your not every month pay your bills and starting from zero zero at the beginning of every month. There's a lot of temptation to be self interested in the situation. You you you have to think about your own paycheck your commission. And that's that's where. The annuity platform is so tempting to so many advisors. Because 'cause we probably big commission they're looking at a six percent hit I mean not hit but they're scoring six percent and they don't have to supervise they don't have to service that account. It's a one and done. Let me explain what Lisbon just said you. All six percent hit means. If you buy one hundred thousand dollar annuity Luethi. That advisor will get paid six percent on that that that month. That thousand dollars. So it's it's it's a good illustration Russian to point out about the other side of this business well and that's why we went into the the fee based platform for depre- financial group. Because is it really aligns. The the incentive of the adviser with the what benefits the customer they make money and then our fee you know we you get paid are fee based on the assets under management so their account goes up and and we benefit when they benefit correct to to piggyback. Off of that too is we had a discussion in the office. This week and We were talking about how a nude he's actually sold. And Mike Mike Johnson our esteemed co-worker steam colleagues said annuities are sold one of the ways they were sold is the client all right you. You know the the person selling it to the client. The adviser says you don't have to think about it. You don't have to think about your money now. Here's my critical. Thank you question of the day. If I don't have to think about my money. Does my adviser have to think about my money right. There's somebody better be you think of the person selling me that annuity is he thinking about my money is he is he is he having those. Oh crap the market's down. What's what's happening to the money? No yeah he got. He got his PA and he's he's he's over over on to the next thing that the thing about the difference in our business and the business that I came up in is that you are always paid up front in the brokerage business is one of the things that I talked about in our newsletter is it mutual funds used to have an eight percent sales load on them. Wow eight percent so if you bought a ten thousand dollar mutual fund. You're paying ten eight hundred dollars in Commission before your money even went to work they just took it right out of the ten tally. Time right out of the ten thousand and the the annuities are the same way they People stop buying in high load mutual funds because mutual funds became no load or low load. So the loads went over to the newest and most people people in this industry operate on a Killa neat kind of Plan they go out and they they get the money and and they bring it in and they they get a commission on it right then we had to change our model to where we would earn our keep for keeping being the money managed over a long period of time which meant we had to keep people happy well and the key with what she'd limp one of the case he's is under management. A try we manage we watch. We advise we look out for the customer. There is no under comanagement with an annuity. It's managed when the when the person that sells it gets paid a try. Well it they have buckets inside of can you can you can change different Exposures inside incentive to manage it though on a day because they get paid up front on the the one the one other piece I wanted to touch on from this article too it says financial advisor spend their days meeting with perspective clients implementing solutions with new clients and reviewing plans with existing clients. Every day is different because every client has a different need says Michelle benders a certified financial planner at The Tomich financial consultants in Germantown Maryland. On a typical day. She'll meet with five to six clients spending six to eight hours of her day in client meetings when they aren't in front of financial advisers are often prepping for client meetings and marketing themselves to prospective clients such as through networking or marketing being events. They're also constantly attending continuing education seminars to keep fresh on the financial services industry and maintain industry license so six to eight hours. There's a day talking to people. Where does everything else come in? You know this this these are questions you gotta ask too. When you're picking your adviser wh where where where does the WHO who's looking at the actual the nuts and bolts and the research and who who out making sure everything's? That's the other piece of the Pie. That we've done it depre- financial group work as a team right. You know we. We have three people that are registered investment advisors in the office myself. Yourself and Mike. Johnson is a hundred if you're doing forty hour weeks that's a hundred and twenty man hours in a week so when you put it that way you know that's why everybody has. The all rose overlap. Mike and I both have client meetings. Yes but Mike and I both do research because we're able to to make sure that everybody has time to do what needs to be done. Yep You know you EH. One of US focuses on on be while the other one focuses on A. You know that's why you can't go to Necessa- so you can but if you go to a one man shop you've got to be careful because that means that they're having to do the research and the talk to the clients at the same time. Yeah thanks for listening. Boy that was quick at was row. We appreciate it. If you'd like to find out more about what we do call us.

Pick the right food. If you do this over Nova. Due to showing in yellow may bet you bobby erred say. CHICAGO. Now she's all grown up and got. His name Geo Dan. Joe where tribal three but we're building a community of come along. I told her you're welcome back to adulting mother father. I'm Daniele Moneda Mother Andrea. And we're both adults salts, and if you're an adult or just trying to be one, this is the show. For Wow this is the show for you. I started thinking about. The things that we want to get into today and I got a little sidetracked. So I'm going to jump right in and we've got some adulting wins in fails. But before that, let me address the fact that we have announced officially the gender of the little one inside my tummy world's biggest news stuff. So exciting. Okay. Super exciting for us at least it is people are excited about it. I'd say people excited I think like you know a lot of our moms and dads out there get it that it's like a moment, right? So it's a girl. Girl. Feeling. I'm feeling excited I'm feeling really. Curious. As to what it's going to be like to have a little girl, I know his geo and I just I'm looking forward to a new experience. Yeah aim here. I. Think. I'm feeling everything under the sun I mean I'm excited I'm nervous. Those two things plus more. Yeah. But at the end of the day. Like I just know it's going to be amazing and I think I'm most excited for a new experience I think. In whether it's kids or. Visiting a new place it's I know it sounds weird to relate those things. But like that's what life is about and that's what makes life interesting new and enjoyable as new experiences and. As much as I would've loved a boy. I think it's cool that like this is just going to be so different and you're GonNa have first of all. You don't even know what you're in for girls typically like they just love their dads and they are daddy's girls and. I just think it'll be a really fun experience for you. I think so too I. Think it's all fun. It's. Challenging but it's all fun. Yeah. Okay. Well, let's get into some adulting winds fails you want to go first share yeah. I'll start go start. Okay so. Gosh I feel like I've just been so. Honest asked about just stuff. So why not give talking about this before we started I think she is a great win and a great fail at something that a lot of people can relate to. So I want you to get into it. I want you to be real about it. Okay. So. If you haven't gathered gathered this much already, you should know that I am the queen of avoiding conflict and I really don't enjoy. Upsetting people or dealing with just any sort of issue whatsoever just to hear you I don't like to deal and what happens. With me typically, and what has happened most of my life is that like all just sort of Internalized feelings, and then I just sort of shrink my circle. It's one of the reasons why I keep it. Very, simple and really like my closest person to me is Andrew. I just don't typically open up to a lot of people, which is really weird because we have this podcast and for some reason, I opened up to all of you. Long Story Short. This is kind of a Wynonna fail and itself, but we had some like conflict that came up in our own family. Specifically on Andrew side and it was pertaining to them feeling hurt and left out and Feeling as though like I have probably changed or been distant or even disrespectful. Since having go or maybe more recent than that. But I think just in general since you know becoming drill down even further in Cuba ended. Yeah. No. I'm just giving a broad understanding like and I think what you meant by saying like other people can relate. I'm sure people are listening saying like, Oh you know I'm not super close with my. Or maybe there's been like some weird feelings with within lahser miscommunication or whatever the long story short of it is that like I've always been tight with your family, they don't live near us but like I definitely have always been super cool with them, I think what's happened recently is I've just become. To blame Li like just more self absorbed. I've just felt like I had a lot to take care of my own life and things that we're really precious to me especially Geo and I got very controlling and call it a part of just post-partum. I'm not sure. But I I just think that feeling of being very protective and probably a little overbearing. I just felt like I needed to protect him from people that I didn't feel comfortable speaking piece around. So to give an example. So what do you mean by that? So you're saying like, for example yeah let's say. Your own mom like was watching Gio and maybe didn't follow the way that we do things or. Just seem like she wasn't paying attention or whatever you're saying that so more okay or it been more okay. Because you can just say whatever happened to her I would just say flat out lake you know don't pay closer attention or don't let them have that or washes hands or little like during Cova you know I've been super weird about germs and people getting too close to his face and and one thing that I did not allow is any sort of like blowing or silly raspberry sounds in his face or him on his face or his lips. So when that would happen with people that I didn't feel comfortable speaking up to I, would internalize like. Felt. Like resentment or harvest this resentment because I didn't have the tools or the strength courage in that moment to say like, Hey, like can you not do that or can you not you know? Just little things like I can go on and on and on and I just feel like what ended up happening was. I put a wedge in my relationship with your mom in particular because I wasn't being. Being a hundred. And so it all kind of came to a head recently where she finally just spoke. No God. It did. Yeah. It should have and it was long overdue and I didn't deal with it and I have a lot to learn in that department. It's something that we deal with like in our own relationship. About me just not. Not handling things in a timely manner or just avoiding conflict because I'm just too afraid or not brave enough to like deal with it. So we had a great talk and you know the bottom line is that like My win is that it it did come to a head and we did confront a lot of feelings but my fail that I let it. Get more out of hand than it needed to be. There wasn't really this big issue. It was just more or less me not dealing with things that were bothering me over time and then also just like becoming a mom and feeling like you're just trying to. beat. The best mom you can, and you're so focused on your goals and your priorities in your family that like sometimes unfortunately with my personality, a lot of people outside of that kind of fall to the wayside or I don't give them that same sort of. Attention so. Our hearts wore normal natural. Then you may believe. I think this is something I was explaining to my mom, the other day was. Yeah I told her you can. Imagine her. You can remember that time in your life when you were a new mom where like your Mama, bear to the fullest you know what I mean. There's nobody there's nothing more important than your life than your baby and you'll do anything and everything to protect them. So regardless of WHO's around who it is right whether it's family whether it's an in-law whatever if you feel like somebody is is putting any risk on your kid and kind of weird word but I like in is everything. Then like you're gonNA feel a certain type of way about it but the challenge with this situation was. You just never been somebody who? Wants to confront things head on and it doesn't mean like. Being rude or disrespectful by any means, but it means just like being able to have a conversation or being able to to speak up when something's bothering you so that it doesn't get brushed under the rug and it doesn't build and build and build, and then months down the line like you still have the same feelings and all of a sudden. Now, this problem is way bigger than ever needed totally and I think like, yeah, I couldn't agree more I think the pandemic added another layer of just like insecurities and having to really trust people's words and that they're going to be. Safe and Listen where I'm at today with pandemic as like, I feel a little bit more at. If you need to address that I think everybody feels a sense of that. I think when you have a kid, it's definitely heightened. So you're way more concern right now with where anybody's been or or who they been around totally, and we had a weird situation early on and if you guys have been following us for a long time like you knew about it. But when GIO was four weeks old, we were hospitalized for three days with him because he had a virus that they couldn't. Put a name on like they texted him for everything. So likely, it could have been covert or version of it. So we've just been extra careful, and so I think I just became extra protective and the people that I didn't feel comfortable like being Super Upfront with I just distanced myself from and so long story short I've said that a hundred times like things are at a good place and so I feel like, what can you suggest to somebody else who might deal with things the same way from your own experience? So. There was like this voice that I had in my head for days where I was like, oh like there's this weird feeling of unresolved issues and the voice would come up and it'd be like Danielle you should address this or maybe just don't act so different around certain people like chill out. And I never fully addressed it. I would just avoid. I would like go into another room and so I think my advice would be to like when that voice pops up and you feel like you're. Acting differently than you should or maybe you're hurting someone's feelings or you're not addressing something that's bothering you just act on it or take a deep breath and like have a conversation with yourself and just say like it's not a big deal like this is what you. Call you're being called to handle this because it's in everyone's best interest don't avoid. Yeah I think I. Forget. What conversation? It was really recent conversation was probably one of the podcast I literally can't remember what I did ten minutes ago. Don't fault me for I can remember not remembering literally stunk up this entire room. All right. You're going to do that to me. You blast to me, but I blasted you already. But it comes down to ten right like. If it let's say my mom for example, is it my mom if my mom does something that you don't agree with when it comes to go her intent was never to put them at risk and her intent was never to upset you directly. There was nothing like that right and on the flip side right? Your intent is always to protect him. It's nothing personal towards her or anybody else. But at the end of the, that's your number one job and like nothing will stand in the way of that. You know. So I think everybody remembered tried to put more focus on intent when going into a situation where he? May. Be. Explosive or maybe you need to go in and have a conversation about something that's under the surface that's been bothering you and you WANNA address. If you can remember. The. Intent behind things I. I just think it makes it so much easier to be open to like. to be able to address things with an open mind. I'm so glad that you're saying that because you are one of the people of that same. Makeup that I feel like doesn't always pay attention to the at intent you pay more attention to the action. Sure and so what nowheres El- by there is a caveat. If the. People in a relationship can relate to this if your significant other. Does something. That really bothers you and then happens over and over and over again, there is a point in time where you start overlooking intent and you have to go off action and not just like what somebody says or what they thought like they were doing or whatever. If you've spelled it out because I, think at the end of the day when when you're in a partnership part of your job is To make life better for each other and to make things easier you like when you have enough time, you realize you both have flaws and if you're really in it for the partnership. You you work on those flaws to make the relationship better for both you. So if somebody's doing something over and over and over again and there's just like well I don't mean anything by it like at a certain point at least from my personality Mike and that doesn't mean anything to me anymore I have to look at the action share. No, I think definitely both. Are Very, important and I think you just have to confront certain situations differently and you're right like if there's a repetitive behavior than it doesn't come off as though like they're intent is. From. The right place, right. All right. Well, I put a lot on the table. Should we take a quick break before we come back with your adulting in? FAIL YOU WANNA? Yeah I feel like I need to take a quick break. We'll be right back. More adulting mother father when we come back. Are you guys I have to tell you. I have been using native deodorant for probably two months now and I wasn't going to sound so weird but I wasn't a decoder end user prior roles. No but I just wasn't willing to put anything there I. Just was like you know what deal with it at world like I just don't want to put anything. But I do actually use native now because I, trust it it's made with coconut oil shea butter Tapioca Starch. It's totally Vegan. It's never test on animals. There's no aluminum's like it's just the real deal on it and it works so really pumped on that. They also have these false seasonals that they just launched the coconut milk in Tomb Rick buttercream and French Vanilla Blood Orange and clove rosemary and lemon zest. You guys know I freak out for false stuff. So if you need a deodorant On yours or if you just like me and wasn't using one before. This might beat the tea owner and for you, it's absolutely the owner in for you look and personally what I think is the best about native is that there about this planet okay. They're aiming to go plastic free by twenty three, which is twenty, twenty, three and they already have five cents that are completely plastic free they're made from one hundred percent paperboard. And they're not even shipped with plastic. They're shipped in a plastic free bag made from one hundred percent recycled paper. That's a mouthful, but it's so cool and I just think like this is something that all companies should be striving for and I'm so glad natives about it. Guys native needs to be checked out do what we did and make the switch to native today by going to native Dao dot com slash adulting or use Promo Code adulting at checkout and get twenty percent off your first order. That's native. Do Dot com slash adulting or use Promo Code adulting at checkout for twenty percent off your first order. Now that to belting like a mother father. Good news guys we are back. I'm. GonNa go through my adulting winning fail. Now, before get into that, just want to keep you on your toes. We do have Mike Johnson coming up in the episode and he's I'm happy to say he's become a friend of mine is a really cool dude. It's I. Feel like it's rare. Now when I run across guys that I just like their guys that would have been the homeys. GROWING UP They feel like they would have been from my hometown. I'm glad you said that because he watched him on the Bachelorette. I was rooting for him and then I was very screamed at the Bachelor and now I'm just rooting rooting for him in life and the fact that he has a new book out where I feel like we get to know him more but also just get to know ourselves more because it comes all the way back to like self love the book is called making the love you want and it's available. Now it's by Mike Johnson himself I'm looking at the Amazon page but anyways Yeah I want to hear your adulting winds but definitely sit tight because I think our conversation with Mike is good one good. We learn a lot about his type which I think is very okay. Any. must no big deal. Okay. So when I'm GonNa keep this really simple yesterday was Sunday. Day Football in America. Gio has taking a liking. To. Like an actual for all like not like a baby size football he does like those too but like. A real adult human sized football and he and I played catch yesterday for on a five or ten minutes please post that video. posted. So if you're listening or recording Monday episode is Tuesday I would have posted this. Monday. So I go back to my feet any. Man Like as a guy, I play football from eight to twenty years old something like that. And I was in love with sport. For me like I'm never going to force him in anything I'll put things in front of them and see what what he gravitates towards. But for him to like shadow a liking to it is just the coolest thing in the world it's really I mean all kind of came down to him. We just happen to have a ball somewhere at one point and he just gravitated towards it, and now this kid is standing up taking several steps literally putting balls in the basketball who He said this'll mainstream patriots like I feel like he turned one and he just decided like, GonNa. Show up and like show you guys what I'm about. Oh. Anyway. So that's your wind fail. Do It's kind of around yours And being person. So big on communication I kind of have a communication fail I dropped the ball a bit. and. It goes back to family as well. So we had an announcement last week actually to right. Oh. Yeah or was one the week before I don't know I. Don't know what I did ten minutes ago. But, I had some family reach out directly and and tell me that they were disappointed in me which. Hits Me Right? In, my heart. because. That's just the type of person that I never want to hurt anyone's feelings and I definitely don't want to disappoint those closest to me. And what happened was? I just didn't keep everybody in the loop with some of these major life happenings going on with us. Some people knew some stuff. Some people didn't know anything at all. Some people knew that like we were pregnant, but it wasn't a girl and. You know maybe experience this they some of them found out some of this information via instagram. which you know is weird and when I go back to. About my core. Like. I don't ever WanNa do that somebody I. Know that's kind of the world that we're living in right now we all throw stuff up there. We don't think about it twice but. Like the older I get the more I want to nurture those relationships that I feel I mean the most of me and even though it's difficult because we're like super crazy busy right now and like if we just had gio that would almost be enough to keep us busy twenty, four, seven. Some of those things fall to the wayside. Sometimes you dropped the ball and I dropped the ball and I didn't I didn't keep everybody in the loop that was most important to me, and so I'll bring them back to another win I hopefully I've turned it around. I've called everybody directly at just straight up said Look I. Oh, Yoon apology lifespan crazy at drop the ball Yada Yada and Most people just said look. You never owed me an apology or call. Thank you for that and. That meant more to me than anything else. So he's happy I flipped around I. Think. There's a lesson in their the in. It's this. We all make these narratives that people feel. Once we hear that people feel a certain way. We think it's already out of hand but in reality the quicker that we address things. The easier. It is on everyone and most cases people are are surprised by someone's like integrity or courage to just say something and be honest lake you know. I just I just think it's admirable that you didn't avoid anything that you just handled it and everyone seemed really responsive and you know I'm very, very much guilty of that. Same thing I think I got caught up in finding out are pregnant a little later than I thought and then everything feeling kind of rushed and then you know at one point I was like, well, we're midway. Probably, announce because there's only so much of just my face I can put on. Instagram so. It just felt like a little different this time and I wonder if mom and dad's listening. Can relate to the second pregnancy or even you know obviously pass out of your more than that. Feeling, like it's not sound so bad but it's just like. It's not as much of a to-do. It's Kinda like we're so busy and. It's not what it was the first time around right? It's still equally special and I still have these moments of like, wow I can't believe this is actually happening and I'm grateful but certainly dropped the ball like even with my own data member finding out the gender because it was like casually brought up in conversation you say, Oh, I didn't know it was a girl I'm like. Dude I like. Track of who knows what am I supposed to tell every single person? Can everyone just tell everyone else in the family? Dad I know it so. I just. Don't WanNA. Make excuses for that. I think that stuff is super important and I just want to be better about it. Yeah totally. Yeah. Wow. Gosh. A lot of little adult life happens. Let's let's switch it up.

It could be lay to explore the earth you know legit it could be. Some of that is just incredibly good with their family and someone that. Has that passion that because when you're together view, you pick up traits of one another. You may not even know that you and so I realized that before getting. So relationship loving Washington pass and I want the to that person. To just be like they're leveling up they're awesome. They are a positive individual 'cause I can't deal with a negative Nancy I cannot have that. I cannot add I'm. Yeah I. Beg I need you to be optimistic come on. The road we were recording in intro. For this episode before on the call with you, we were talking about I just mindset during this pandemic time whatever and I was saying the same exact thing heave king. Respected, which is funny making this general apathy I'm super optimistic and I am when it comes to its released selfish I am when it comes to success like I never doubt myself. I know the sky's the limit I'm a go getter in that regard. But when it comes to like my daily routine when I feel like it's being compromised in, it's not my fault. I'm like Oh no, no, no I'm. No seriously put a finger out there. We've done and we're going to put a stop to this. But no I really I mean it's it's not easy to be positive all the time and I think you know I'm going to side with my with my girls on this like we've got things going on that not even understand half the time the question myself there's no reason to Neela like go get yourself a coffee. You now do your your Mehta do something make yourself feel better? It's a good day with like. Your insides are saying otherwise. I agree with that all day you can't be perfect or. Positive Twenty, four, seven. And then I was even at the start of the quarantine for me. I was coming right now but then I realized I needed routine. Like without routine I'm just like. Blah you know. So routine was thank for me to help me get back to a positive state of mind. So I definitely feel you. Mean Talk. Officer your routine now. So different than what it was. Pre Bachelor riding. Oh, Bro was. Dead. So yesterday people don't realize is appreciate that question. So people think that some people not all some people that you off the show you're like rich and everything's threats you is the exact opposite. Me I was financial advice. I practice went up pretty good financially. Couple dollars in the bank now. So therefore when I got the show. Quite honestly instead of investing in the stock market, objects investment myself right. My book is I'm going self-independent right. So I paid for my book things of that nature. So yesterday, what I was doing was literally, yes Sunday from about ten am to ten, forty, five pm I was working with things that I have coming on each. Other effect. So I think for me my. My work schedule now is wake up I'm GONNA. Be admittedly I wake late 'cause I go to bed late was waco. Latest eight. Three. Hours say average three. Agree. On a better. But it's crazy that when I was a financial adviser, I used to wake up at four eighteen in the morning every. Now, it's like I go to bed for eighteen seems like. What are you from between? Max. Wellman. Three. That's where the robot mind I swore so much better when I feel like the world is asleep. Okay. I just feel mentally subconsciously it feels like. I'm getting a edge on the competition. You know now you have come to own boss but. You know he's just mentally I feel like I have competition. So therefore, I need every single day just like when I was in middle school shootings shots. Some there's a kid in New York Knicks still shoot right next to my brain outbreaks. Thanks so. I'm up I mean literally yesterday on my laptop. All frigging day I would turn a game on. I'll turn game back off. I was working on my facebook marketing tips because again. We, you have a huge following back as we both know. Only, a percentage of your following sees anything that you do not. Pregnant I started abruptly. He's like. So I'm over here, working on how could I push my message out for my book more. So I was doing things like that yesterday. And Have A. have. Somebody else and I'm working at home, we'll set it. Late. Next year. Yeah teaser would be it's a a form of media that helps men and women Lord Insecurities and raise herself. It's It's That's the teaser. That's the team. Do. You work with anyone like do you feel like you have a a team around you or are you kind of like so loud do you like to get things done by yourself? Any find out more at all I. That's two part question because my book team they're like the greatest ever right and then course I got persona PR PR team. They are frigging phenomenal and then I have my agent and Ben Taylor? But. If. They don't work. Out So. True. Yes. I have people. But they can't. They didn't tell me to write a book right I decided to buy a book. Then that's how I'm able to be here with you guys aren't of era I could have just been on his show off the show, Nova Gill So. I'm already working on the next thing that I have coming but nobody told me do it. It's me to do it right? Yeah. To talk that forever. 'cause. Numbers got I'm similarly human to see the I. left out roll up and did sales for a fintech startup Santa Monica for four years when our son was born. I resigned left complete great job. When here screaming right now Your foolish. Talk about routine routine is so different because nothing happens unless you do it. Now Structure You're not Organiz man you're gonNA fail sure that's organizations bid a self motivation determination although. I like as you said that when you guys had a child, you start working my. There's two reasons. To banks to that one reason why I got out the military Air Force was because our refuse to deploy while my wife is pregnant indoor while I have a family to me that S. Obviously. I'm a veteran. I have love for everyone that does that but for me, that was a knock compromising. The second thing was. I'm thirty two years old I WANNA have children. Let's talk about him my book as well. multi goes to build a treehouse markets. Will I I refuse. To be working. Eighty hours a week. You know I I just refuse it implement from a financial mindset in America. We are so brainwashed where we have to work forty hours a week. Things of that nature no might. Wish, the SCRIP I'm a flip, the script and so. That's where my self determination comes in. That regard saw appreciate what you said when you guys had a kid you like. I'll tell you I. I've said this on a budget easily job that I've ever had added. You know like you have different motivation advocate to ensure you understand. Now I have one and you just figure out a way to get it all done and make it all work. Fabulous. You guys. Funny. No I mean you're on your way beyond and the fact that you're trying to set yourself up I. think that's like he is it was a feeling that I felt to being pregnant. I remember thinking like so many people are nesting during their pregnancy and I felt the fire I was like, oh my gosh like I know my life's about to change I can feel it. I need to like set all my stuff up Dotson row that would some point you can like sort of sit back or have some sort of passive income that like you're not feeling pressured to like prioritize things when really you need to be a mom or dad or whatever it may be that time. So I. think that's The most important south there is if you have children. To Be. That MOM FATHER beat up Aaron a parental figure, right You don't WanNa go back. A few steps. Think she'll appreciate this question nitty-gritty strategy business question for you. You said the PR did you bring the PR team on like as you decided to write a book or a movie May after Bachelor Bachelorette to help you on your journey as an entrepreneur Great Question The saints would be I borrow PR team. When my book was fully rain already. I'm basically by PR team. I. Felt my brain. You know on reality TV. You have fifteen seconds of fame right now and I'm like for me. I when opportunity meets look in right now I had the opportunity. So therefore in I have the resources I was blessed financially resources because of what I did right prior. and. So at that point town relies a PR team. Is. Elevated to the next level you gotta invest in shows, and so that's exactly what I did. I know that Claire Seasons about the drop. Going to be a new good looking black guy. So I'M NOT GONNA be the Guy No more. My Johnson we ask. Another, Johnson. But in humbling myself I. There's GonNa be a new crop guys, and we're no longer thought about right and so. I know that I have so much to offer the world. So I know that I can't do it by myself and I had an invest in them or in myself by hiring PRT. Yeah. Because a lot of the people that are show on their young entrepreneurs, they're trying to figure out life like the rest of us and he talked about yourself a lot of people obviously because they're not in this world, they win structure Archer but. You don't bring on PRT negative pavement. You'd pay typically you're paying the set theory months before you make. A crutch. In a month. Debray saying again. All too well. Respect for it because you're right like you have to establish yourself unfortunately, it's does not that easy can't stand on the corner be like Hey I'm Mike Johnson I really affect your life at wearing like there needs to be strategy and things like that. So we're to talk to you about your book because in general being an adult it's rough like there are so many hurdles that we all go through you know and self love is so imperative in getting through them. So I want know a little bit more about how like you even change the idea to create a book where you really just help anyone it's our relationship walk a bit to lifelock. Appreciate that 'cause it's not a relationship I. Really Love the way that you said. Thank you so much. I would say back in hand lost half, Mike? Twenty. Seventeen Twenty Sixteen In Twenty Sixteen I basically. took off work. Again for the for the young people that are auction step one, pay yourself first. Pay, your cell I I can't stress that enough when I get paid off my if people wash my grandma say okay mic get a deal with so-so company. I'm not spending that also Jordan's your it I. Just don't I'm it right back out right I might. You like straight up. But what happened was me my ex broke up and I became extremely stressed I stopped going to work for about eleven months sin eleven months legit didn't leave my house I lost so much weight. I have money in the bank to pay the rent and like to order pizza. And? I was distraught. I completely broken completely broken and. You know those. Suicide Isolation's Qena. Brain am I about to do that, but they did come to pass. And? Finally one day I just I said to myself stop being a victim. The I, I'll never forget it. The first day I was around a group of people I had to run out because almost through. I was hyperventilating because I hadn't been around for a long right and it was just. I forgot who I was and it wasn't my ex photos muffler right? I. Just. Didn't have careful myself something I always say the Mirror is a Mike Mfn Johnson. Under my breath sometimes I say the mirror I said like if I get nervous or scared, I'm Mike Method Johnson. And I lost that that Esprit de Corps and so for me that happened and then I remember a friend of mine. she committed suicide. And then One of my home girls, she sin Yup Hitch on them forget it. I'll never forget the day Michael Cera named unlike that she sent me a picture her like three people when she was in the middle and she's a big girl. And she kinda cropped him out a little bit. She said, Mike, I'm sending you this pitcher because. I've been crying for two hours. She's like I hate myself I hate the look. It needs easy change and she said I'm only sending it to you. Because I have the way that I speak to her in a way, the people is. I'm not, GonNa lie about going to be honest but respectful encouraging the saints a Mustang I know how to do it just just who I am right and so that the coral meet and then a you know how when you break up with somebody I'll try to see if you can make it happen again I did that years ago my ex I went out to visit her answer meet Girl Danielle you know what I like she's pretty she's cute girl right and Not Personnel but she shoot. Nothing against her, she's a wonderful human being. Yeah price for me right but. She. The figure right and. She felt that she started hyperventilating in the bar that we're at. We had call an Uber I she. was having a panic attack because she felt fact. Your starts within yourself right? No. One else no club Senate she was fat that starts with myself. No one told me. That for eleven months I'm going to be harmed crate that starts with consult, right? No. Until my homegirl like to cry for hours because the body that you have. Right, and I started to see that you know you could save imaging. Over the years like legit this is just dawned on me. I have all kind of say, democracy one is six out. The most is a girl. She's like eight years old she scissors vote magazine. She's no crop crop over your stomach flat because we're human beings. She was like insinuating cutty. In like. In you know my biggest going like I'm GonNa have children be Daddy's little tree house, my Yo. That can't be my daughter. You can't be my daughter and so knowing me nor from my background, I'm not want to. Just have problems all damn day. I. Want to create a solution and so my book literally formed from the idea of. Creating solutions to a growing pandemic of mental illness you know, and then being offered his show at really took that. Really. Haunted end because all the DMZ. I got our respond to people I'm talking about like patriotism DM's from one person at a time. Now we're respond but they don't WanNa stop responding it was still be on my mind. And so we. Just kept flowing into a book. Allow man I I'm with you sense I, love anything that's soul-searching base or mindset base. I couldn't agree more. I think we have a huge problem in the world with mental illness right now. Wanted. To just comes down to self confidence in love. That's what it is. That's that's literally what is. that. Such broad statements and I think what we need is a book that Lake breaks down and makes it tangible to really digest understand because it's so easy to say, why don't you just love yourself and then you ask yourself like what is getting in the way like what can I do more I do better so I appreciate you like and it's funny too because you know people don't know everyone from these shows right? We think we I started off saying I think I know you but like I don't because the truth is is that you have so much to offer and I'm so glad that you are offering it because we need more real. Definitely. I think people want to show I'm the real. I. Mine. biting my book I speak. About real crap that has happening to me taking place in my life, but it's not a memoir. It's tangible. It's guide. It will tell you start a book not giving damn about yourself. By the end of the book, you do all the exercising within their will. Be On a track in on the journey now to love yourself fully. In place. So big into how does you leave your corporate job? Right? You have to have some form of cells to know that. I can do it. Daniel like you said. You're exploiting success you. Know that you can do it right but if someone doesn't have that. Love of self. then. You might be stuck at that job getting paid cracked from a crappy boss you know and so it. It touch touches every single aspect of your life. Literally does to be a mom, be a father to be a mom and two. I'll tell you this what I'm working on now, which won't be out until next year. I'll give you this example. My sister has act. And she told me one time she said. Do you even know how it feels. To Light. Obviously. I don't I don't like me in the win since of a woman she's like, do you know how is to be out or the Guy an extra partner? He touches your face you could think about is accurate near fakes. Like things like that like are powerful right I think most of us just continue about our day. 'cause we live in a crazy busy. But to think about the small things like that, right for you guys have a child as a woman your body changes right? You GotTa make sure that you still love your wife love your like love every ounce of her right even if you don't know that maybe take place in her brain, right? And so I just think touch you gotTA. Love. So I, talked about this forever I'm extremely passionate. You're talking here and he brings it really secons awfully. In a way, we're all almost to self century. We think about ourselves watered we want to. The problem is that the conversation is negative rather than positive. So for example, your sister is that says, she has acne I can understand that and are related to that hundred percent because I dealt with it up until. I left my job to say. Trust But. We like have that conversation all the nobody can understand because nobody probably cared the way that I did true this don't care care about South Right? That's that's rose. Yes. Yeah. All the energy is negative because you don't not to talk to yourself in the way that shouldn't talk yourself. So talk I'll talk big. That's why to say I'm Mike MFN Johnson. Is Me. giving. Myself. Back, pat on the back I need for self, right? But then the the other mantras in the book are all about self talk like I'm GonNa have you at the read the book Temperament. Ninety desolate night. Any No. One hundred kitchen and say what much out allow in just say it out loud to yourself. Right and it just makes you feel better really does. I mean, definitely, I think mantras are so important. I remember being only auditioned in real life. I would be sitting in my car trying to tell myself on the bomb I'm like on the shit like Milwaukee Room there'd be so lucky I'm they're like they're gonNA be like oh We don't have to.

So funny, why was talking to my GRANDPA? This morning eight am this morning on the phone with them. And? I don't know how we got here but I just said you know it's really interesting now. Looking back at like when you were a parent and I was a kid right or he was a grandparent at that time. But even looking at my own parents thinking you guys are adults. That's like a different classification when you're adult like you have it nailed down, you know exactly what needs to be done. You've got it all figured out and now that I'm here yeah you never had it figured out none of you guys figured figuring that out for yourself. That you. Feel like you're figuring it out until the day you leave probably, and if you aren't than, I, guess that would be really boring. Yeah probably, right probably. All right. All right guys so again. We Love you think listening thanks for supporting adulting like mother father. Before we head out I, just got some housekeeping to do here. This is a pretty cool story. I had a buddy from mine her from my hometown reach out the guy that I've known since I was probably six seven, eight something like that. We used to play baseball together. And he's doing something really cool. Right now, he's putting the these mental health toolkits for first responders and different departments, for example. EMT fire. Department and police departments whatever. Read a little blurb that he sent me because you can sponsor these packs they put together. To help these departments deal with very specific situations in a better way. So the mental health toolkit is a backpack designed to support first responders on calls received for persons suffering from a mental health crisis while the bag is designed for first responders, it can also support other public businesses that may contact persons in a mental health crisis such as airlines regional transit theme parks, and more pack comes stocked with items such as proof, ill communication boards and prompt cards to support deescalation and gather information about the person's needs. There are also report building items such as edibles. Water or juice. Anna stuffed animal. It's pretty cool. Last there are sensory items such as noise-reducing. fidgets century Chew Necklaces, visual timers, glow sticks all of these items when used correctly can help too quickly de escalate a crisis situation and help to meet that person's needs. The pack also comes with virtual training for the department receiving currently, these packs are made available through department requests and community based sponsorships, which is where all of us come into play for each sponsored pack. A certificate of donation is included with the pack with the donor's name when delivered to the Department of their choosing for more information visit facebook, the mental health toolkit or Instagram, which is m h tk underscore Roemer R. A.. E.. R. R. You can also email nick who's my buddy directly at Nick Dot Roemer at gmail.com love that so cool I just think it's crazy that something like this doesn't exist and isn't standardized across all of these industries. I just think this is so nick is a good dude I've known him for a long time. And this comes out of my hometown, which unlike just so proud that people from my hometown. And do. Like this so shout out to Elk Grove California I love you guys but guys think about your own lies if you have a first responder in the family or you know somebody or you just support your local departments because it's not all most of these people are good people out trying to do the right thing and goodbye. But. If you know somebody and you want to sponsor a pack for a department please reach out to nick and make it happen. Love that. All right guys thank you for listening. We'll be back next week.

Oh, it's another week of the almost famous podcast and I am lucky enough to be talking with. My Wonderful Co, host actually Canetti. Hi Ben Hey Ashley how are I? AM Lucky and blessed to be talking to my co host Ben Higgins I? This week is a big week for us. We have a lot of really exciting things to talk about, and so we just need to dive into right away first off Ashley I. Know You and I are both thrilled with this idea because we had just kind of gotten the rhythm of being able to meet the people who've listened this podcast for years in person and then obviously. With the shutdown we haven't been able to continue that rhythm, and so we found a way. To make it work so here. Here's the deal we announce it last week. We'll talk about again this week. We have the almost famous live. Yes, live podcasts coming to you June twenty second four to five PM. Pacific Time Ashley Tell everybody about it. So, you guys. It's basically like a cocktail party before you get to watch BEN SEASON RE AIR ON ABC. For Nine. Then is going to need some drinks to. He'll be having his whiskey during this Digital podcast so for nine dollars. You can join us. Gasol be on a couple of the girls from Ben, season and Mike Johnson who was appearing on our podcast today. We'll also you back next week and You know ladies. We might be doing something like special. Meet and greet with him in with us, so if you. If you pay a little, you might have a personal. Meet and greet with my Johnson, and who knows what can happen in a little alone time right? Yeah, so for a little extra money, so the nine dollars get you into live podcast. Then the meet-and-greet will be a little extra more but. I tell you what it's GonNa. Be Worth it because Mike. Johnson is going to have a lot to talk about. He's never been one to shy away from saying how he feels which he'll be on the podcast here in just a bit today to talk about everything going on in Bachelor nation but I think on the live meet-and-greet I could see him sharing a lot more details, obviously meeting all of you beautiful people out there. Who are fans of this podcast. And as Ashley just said. I'm actually really excited. Because for the first time in a long time some for the first time since the show, some of the women for my season are going to be joining us as well just to hang out to talk to laugh into reminisce on everything that happened during our season of the bachelor so again. That's June twenty second from four to five PM. Pacific Time the link to the tickets. I'll read it out loud here, but will also be posting about it. It's Cya dot live. Slash channel slash almost famous again. We'll be posting about this and saying a couple times throughout the PODCAST, but we're super pumped to see you all especially celebrating a night that will be. Nerve wracking for me to say. Actually before we get in the hot topics for the week, let's take a quick break when we come back. We're going to be talking all bachelor news and we have a lot of it along with the new announcement of the Bachelor, also Clare Crawley's the Bachelorette is still happening, so let's take a break. We come back. It's almost famous podcast. First topic of the week Bachelorette clear. Carly didn't get a heads up about Matt James. Being named the Bachelor Ashley, I have my thoughts, but I wanNA hear years. I is according to US magazine. So this is in Clare, saying it directly to US magazine does definitely sound salacious like she thinks she's supposed to be in the loop on all bachelor decisions. When you read the headline, but when you go into it, it says a source says that Claire Did it. No, this was going to happen There's nothing salacious about this. It's a simple statement. She didn't know. And they announced, and she found out the way that everybody else found out through the Good Morning America announcement. Yeah, you know the headline reads as it. It's true right. She didn't know. Not that she should have known not that she's saying. She's mad that she didn't know, but she found out through good morning. America I do think that if I was clear and I'm sure Clare is a better person than I. I would be a little, I, would imagine there's this like Dang like typically the bachelor, no matter what the circumstances isn't announced before the Bachelorette season has even started. And it's like you get your one moment to be the lead, and there's already another lead waiting like typically you at least get till after the final rose, but Clare's. that. But she's probably a better person than I. that's just how I would feel. I know what you're saying to use a phrase from Tiara. Perhaps she feels like perhaps she could feel like this is taking her sparkle away a little bit, but on the brighter side. She doesn't have to worry about any of her guys. Being. They're starting a campaign to be bachelor. You know none of her guys are going to become bachelor. Yeah, it will and I honestly I mean. Do you viewed as a positive for her I view as a positive for her, for sure because the guys know going into it is hey, I'm here for clear. In Clare. Now there's obviously other things that can happen paradise and all, but at least your first intention. There's going to be this. Know who's going to be the next lead in house and I think that's wonderful for her. It sets her up in talking about setting up the process and doing it well, arline Dyke. Junior has made headlines this week. Saying the bachelor process barely works set according to e online. He's married with a kid so. I think what he's saying here is that it doesn't work. Often for a lot of people and it was really interesting. Jared and I were doing an interview about a week ago and he said that he doesn't think the process was right for him. Which is Super Ironic but also explains why it took us. Four years to get married from the time that we met. Yes, so, it's not for everyone. You have to be comfortable with moving really fast. And getting engaged and getting serious before seeing somebody in their own element. Ari says quote I think initially being the bachelor. You trust the process because you're like this is worked for me. It worked in the past because I had such strong feelings towards someone into the short amount of time. He said it's such a difficult I hate to call process, but it's a difficult show, and that's probably why you find a lot of people. Don't make it. It's because it's just so taxing emotionally. It's just like it's not natural to have two people that you have at the end, and then have one person break up of the other person to get engaged to the other president hour later. Just so weird. No wonder why barely works I feel that I. Get that I agree with him on that. It's tough, isn't. It? It's not shocking that it doesn't work every time, but I think the the caveat to all of that is at work sometimes and does it's beautiful, and then we can be part of it. And to be honest, I'm actually shocked about how many times it has worked. I mean yeah, in the cool part is like Ashleigh. My Grandma follows Ari in Lawrence story like all the time because she saw it play out now I, don't know. She was Ari fan was airing I i. don't know that side, but at least she's a fan of their love story now because it has been so public and we do feel so involved in so when it doesn't work. It's sad because we're part of that. When it does work, we get to celebrate with it, and it seems to be working more now than ever. Because I think we have an understanding of what like everybody that goes into. It knows what they're getting into. Obviously, we just had the recent break-up of Coltman Cassie. That is one of the first major breakup from Bachelor nation in a long time. Yeah, a long time. well speaking of a couple that's together BECA Kufr in speaks out about Garrett's controversial police re support that's according to the online as well. Right, so if you guys remember last week, we were talking to Becca Martinez about this post and her strong feelings about it. We also said that we reach out to Garrett to see if he wanted to come on the podcast. We don't have him on this week. Nick was actually supposed to have them have both he and back on last week and Nick announced I believe today that. After a phone call with Garrett they plan out the whole podcast. It sounded good, but then about fifteen after the conversation Garrett texted him saying he actually wasn't comfortable coming on yet. He didn't feel like he was ready. Prepared enough to speak, and he's still wanted time to educate himself. It's Garett recently just had an instagram post I mean he's. You know he's he's in a position where I do think we all need to take a step back in become educated right but I've also learned recently from a little show I. Do on Sunday nights called. Hopes still wins that one of the best way to be educated is to have conversation to listen to understand and and so I think I. Don't want to speak for gear, but I imagine right now. He's doing a lot of that and maybe Knicks podcast. He didn't feel was he was ready for it as you said, but Becca is supporting him, and you know what call caller what you will it's. It's when you get into a relationship. With a partner you need to have them support you now. They don't always need to agree with you. They don't always need to say hey. You have it always right. But I do appreciate it win in the. Most difficult times. Your partner can stand by your side and say hey. We're working through. This at home were working together. I think I think we all need to take a step back and realize that that is a good thing that Becca is a in a relationship with Garrett. That is a good thing that she is supporting him even if she's not agreeing with him right and Becca was really open about all this on her podcast last week, and how difficult it was, and when the podcast was released, she even felt like she. She didn't do a good enough job, but her takeaway here is. She says Garrett is my fiance and I love him into his core I. believe that he's a good person I don't own line with and I don't agree with his social post I don't think that he meant in a malicious way. I do think it was tone deaf and I do think it was the wrong time and message and sentiment. So BECA Goo friend and Garett still together. BECCA is supporting Garrett so Ashley into some very big news before we bring Mike Johnson. We gotta just announce. Psalm assumes podcast. Come on this according to people. Magazine Matt James Is the New Bachelor. Well, you guys. It is according to everyone now. In this is not the first announcement, but he is a new bachelor, and it's the first time Ben and I'll be talking about this. I was of course super happy to see this Big Move in Bachelor nation. There was a petition out last week. Did we talk about the petition last week? We did YEP. So, there's a petition out last week about getting the first for next season's bachelor should be the first black lead, and I think it was asking for eighty five thousand signatures Ben, and I signed and guess a couple of days later the day that they hit the eighty five thousand like bachelor. Announce it. Let's make the move and they announced James. Who is Tyler Cairns best friend by the way guys? On Good Morning America, it was interesting I thought it was very very interesting. That a lot of the press headlines made, it seemed like most bachelor. Nations should've known who Matt James was. Seventy, five percent probably didn't know who he was right I. Mean Yeah, because unless you follow Tyler you have known who Matt was yeah, and in the grand scheme of things say they get seven million viewers a week and two million people follow tyler. One million people follow tyler closely enough to really understand their relationship. There's a lot of people probably scratching their heads. Who is this guy? He's very handsome. He's well spoken, but I don't know. He was casted for Clare Season and then clear and matt had a little I. Mean I think it was? It was a pretty small tiff, but Clare wasn't thrilled that Matt was doing cameo and kind of made a a twitter posts announcement at that point in time I think we all realized that Matt. Going on clear season probably wasn't the like going to work out well for either of them, so it makes sense now that he is just moving on to be the bachelor. There's a lot of things to discuss here. Things I want to hear and understand about Matt James. Being named the Bachelor in addition all that is like. Where's my Johnson going to fill the role? I mean I think that's the biggest question that a lot of bachelor fans had is okay. Why are you guys picking some a black guy that we don't know Why didn't you pick Mike? Johnson, who was so beloved and such a front runner for what became Peter Season of the bachelor, so we had to have Mike here to give his thoughts on all of this. Let's invite Him Mike Welcome back to the almost famous podcast. Thank you, thank you. From, Adam Meek back, there's good. All Right Mike tell us your honest feelings. How did it feel hearing that Matt James was going to be the first black bachelor on. Was it Thursday morning? Friday, the up and operatic. Madison good food talks out I felt the. He is a a single Moslem for love just like I and You'll be a gray vassar. It will greatly. was. Walk us through your emotions. I was just talking about. You know Clear being a better person than I am you know I remember the days leading up to the announcement of the Bachelor and I knew there was other people in that conversation and I was anxious because i. kind of set my life up to be the next bachelor. Because that's what was said to me but I knew there is other people still in the running. I personally would have been a little bit. Pretty disappointed or dislike disheartened if I wasn't announced. On true. That's how was fail. You think but quite honestly. I! This is the first time that I felt rejection. His arm so. You learn to. I mean you build up cash right I. was I'm planning on moving. Here in a few months anyway so I was. My life has been plan and. My Mom taught me the serenity prayer and I can't focus on things. I cannot control. And so therefore. I honestly. It is what it is. They great guy in. For like thirty minutes. I was but her after that. You move on with life. There is nothing that. No one can do to make me feel less than Annan amazing. Amazing person so therefore. I'm not GonNa let a few. Executive. Producers didn't choose. Twice are making shoney's have a wet. Mike. Did you talk to producers? Recently about possibly becoming the bachelor, I wasn't even offer. Do you didn't have any discussions recently? I had any recent discussions. Do you think that is what I mean? We obviously. Were hoping for something like this to happen this year. Why do you think it? Is that two years in a row now you have felt rejection. Man Honestly if I knew I would say I. True if I knew I'll tell ya just on the phone, my grandma earlier. She, asked me the same question, but. I just really January. No I feel that. For over a year since I've been in bathroom nation. Family. Shown my character day in day out in I. Don't feel that nothing. Show is not conducive. What actually be? How did you feel about so? You've met Matt? You've met Mac. And you think he's great bachelor material. Why would they choose him? Who's never who the fans aren't connected to over you? Question actually hit by. Like this has nothing to do a matt. Right. He's Union breaking the visual why they choose. Someone who isn't as known in the light. Over. Myself or other cast members that have built a reputation in the light of the Bachelor nation. I have no earthly idea, no idea. I know that Matt was cast to be on Clare Season where that's. That's all. Has Anybody reached out to you since the announcement from the show. Yes, yes, would that conversation look like? That conversation was fresh, right? That conversation took place on Friday. Out The golfing, Friday saw was already like Mulan Oh my life literally. When I say not saying Really Neat House already golfing on my life. I'm single man white. But A. Debt conversation was wrong honesty. On my part as all. An. Hour this appreciative that someone resell. Rachel talked this week about her feelings. When Matt was announced and it wasn't just happiness. A lot of her was holding back because. She was saying that she feels like this was just like the bachelor producers checking a box and be like okay. We've had a diversity. We've given them their first black lead. Now they can just stop. Or asking for more change right. How did you feel that you agree with her sentiments? I do. I do think that. I'm I'm confused like ballot nation. What happened to clear affiliate supposed to be? Isn't there a certain way that this stuff gets announce? You know even if it was me, I would still say. What? I think Matt Sale, which was unclear season like it just the way they wrote it out. Seemed off your mother being the podcast I, said Hey I don't. I don't know how this usually happens but I I I know he's of Clare's season. I would be I would typically lease. Get through your season. It's after the final rose, and your fifteen minutes of fame has done, and you stand up there at the end, and you say hey, thank you all for your time of watching me now. It's onto and they bring out somebody else and it's. Now it feels I mean. What do you think Mike like? Do you think this whole sees Clare? Season will have this like constant. Look to the future now. I hope it doesn't either. Everytime I've always mentioned Clare because. I on, Friday. The attention should be on Clare. It's her seasons. It's she's the current Bachelorette and I feel like the way new kind of. is going to make come out to be that way man. It's not fair to her. I love what you sound. You're instagram about her. You're like clear, baby girl. We still are so excited about watching you. It was so sweet and I'm GonNa end this on my behalf. I duNNo. Ben Has any more questions with a silly question. A lot of fans of noticed some back and forth between you unclear on social media, perhaps a little flirtation. Would we ever be able to get to see? The Beloved Mike Johnson joined Clare Season. It could be a possibility. Let's let's start petition now if you're down. You guys would make a hot couple. That's I mean that's just giggles. Mike that's all. We got that one giggles. That means there's some. There's some there when I giggle. When I go I know I don't want to say what I'm feeling. She's a cutie. Fair enough. But Mike I. I do think you've handled this in A. You know I'm not I guess I don't know. I am the one to say this but I. do think you handled this better than than most especially right away coming out and saying you know, don't feel bad for me. You are moving forward. but I do I think. You can I. Know It's not now all bachelor. Nation is wondering why not you and if you were to have any assumptions, speculation anything that you would understand why, not you whenever you understand what you will you share it with us? We I think we're just all kind of like what's going. What's going on here? Literally just boys, you and I on a back patio, talking when else around I wish I knew the answer to that I. Truly Do. I can speculate like anyone else. I'M Not Seeing nobody I mean great. Decent Looking Guy I know. That I was one of America's Fan favorites. I mean. Professionally in a good place on financially free I live by myself I mean I don't know I really don't know. What are the next steps in your life? Besides possibly we're going on Claire Season.

Bachelor nation, responding to the news of Matt and I do want to say that like I said that Matt was ran of random choice I just mean he was far more of a random choice than than Mike. Who has been a fan favorite in the past? You know what I mean like Matt does seem like such a nice guy and I got so stoked about him being the bachelor after seeing Hannah's response. How did you see Hannah's response on Instagram Ben Yeah definitely she was. Yeah. It was really awesome, and I mean. We've watched you and I have been to watch. My Matt and From a distance, a lot of people have any, is he? Has that like charisma? That is is just like it feels fun to be around and so I'm excited to watch that. Displayed on TV because it's been awhile including myself where we've had somebody that, even from a distant is so. Charismatic you just like. I, want to know that person right and seeing Hannah's reaction. May Me think of kind of like the time? That nick was announced. It's like when that like older brother figure is, announces the Bachelor, and you know that they deserve it so much, and you know that they're like such a good person and you want to see them like find their happily ever after. So seeing I like kind of just. I don't know you could just trust that somebody is so good and decent. After seeing their friends react in such a giddy way. And I mean this is a huge announcement for the bachelor. That we can, we can criticize timing. We can say wow, this feels like a knee. Jerk reaction like that's not my place to say say any of that. But what I will say is this is a big announcement for the bachelor, and so you know if they're gonNa make this announcement when they did. Then they're gonNA. Make sure that he is like an outstanding human like this is a big deal for them, and so we can get excited about the fact that now we have a bachelorette season. Look forward to, but also a really exciting bachelor season with a extremely ridable lead. Yeah I'm really excited to get to know him. Kinda Fun and it's also be fun is seeing somebody who hasn't been through the process before has no idea what to expect. Be Thrown into the position of the lead. I'm kind of scared for him. That sounds awful scare. All Right? Let's read some quotes. This is exactly what Hannah Brown said. Did you guys didn't see her instagram search? WHAT THE HECK OUT! James is the bachelor I. Literally Woke Up and I could not be more excited. You all should be frigging. Excited the keys. He's like the best human being in the entire world. Go ahead, get started making your number one Matt James Fan t shirts printed because I'm definitely going to be wearing one y'all this is amazing, and so proud of you mentioned the crap. This is a really fun. Wells said this exclamation point. Great Move Bachelor ABC but I. Also Kinda WanNa see Glare and Matt get into a fight night one about his cameo account Shan lows, said awesome, looking forward to seeing a season without a recycled a bachelor to Keila Quinn, then from arson. Here's that yeah of our season of the bachelor reacted, said after forty seasons of the bachelor. Today's news is a momentous step forward as Matt James was just announced as the first black bachelor. It makes me feel so proud to be a part of this bachelor family that listens in stands up for representation literally just. Just heard the news and want to shout it out from the rooftops. I want to applaud not only battery B see for taking action, but also the hard work from bachelor diversity, forgetting eighty five thousand signatures advocates for change as a daughter of biracial parents, watching cross cultural diverse love unfold feels deeply personal and inclusive I have heard wonderful things about this handsome man of faith, who is generous and kind that is from Kayla Quinn and I touched on. Rachel's responds earlier. Saying that you know basically. She was hoping that she hopes that. This is not just a knee jerk reaction to the movement. So we're GONNA roll the clip that Rachel posted on her instagram story to be very clear and I can't believe actually explain myself on this. I am happy that changes is the bachelor and I congratulated him and I, wish him very fast and support him on this new journey this new venture for him, but at the same time. I also don't want the people. The eighty five thousand plus people who signed the petition to forget what else it is that you're fighting for. That's the only thing pointing out, but I also do stand by the fact that I don't know how. They rolled him out at feel like it takes away from who he. He is with the timing of the announcement. I don't think that's fair for Matt James and I. Don't think that does him justice as to what he represents as a black man, and what he can bring to this role. Now that's all the quotes we have surrounding Matt James Ashley and I want to be clear. We're jacked about Matt Janes. Being named the next Bashar. We think it's going to be awesome but again in the words of my Johnson, we haven't forgotten about you. Clear babies so. We're excited for clear season. Still no update on win and how filming will happen, but it will happen at least that is the most recent updates from the bachelor franchise. Hey, have a really exciting rest of the podcast for you. We're GONNA start interviewing, some of the fan favorites from Kaitlyn, Bristowe season of the bachelorette which is airing. Monday, night on ABC so stay with us. We'll be back. Let's take one break and we come back with a zone from caitlyn season of the Bachelorette. Arc Is, and now it's time to discuss me watching my husband. Make out with my friend I keep saying this because this is a huge joke. Like how weird is it? It's weird, but I didn't make me feel like it didn't have any Ping's of jealousy or anything like that. Offered Okay Fine. There's one time and that was during their first kiss, and you will really good. It was a really good I and I go jared. Why don't you put your hand on my face? Like charest like the whole Cheek Jawline area and he goes I used to do that with you. Go thanks! Wow, soon half years in. That was the only time I've felt like really jealous. It seems like jared was such more of a reserve guy back. Then I never what I watch it. His Politeness and how much of a gentleman he is really shows through, which is still of course shoe to this day, but I think of him as so much more passionate and a little bit more outspoken than he came across Kaelin season. You can tell that he was not out of his shell yet. Yeah, he wasn't and it's also I think. Jared and I got along so well during that season is. He and I both were kind of fish out of water. These other guys seem to catch on pretty fast including some of the guys that will be interviewing today, but for Jared Ni- There's many times where jared I would sit back in the back and just be like I don't know what to do right now like I. Don't know how I fit into this. I'm sure jared. Jared will tell you the story when he comes on a little bit later in the podcast, but he always remembers this timer. You and him were an Asana for like an hour, and it was the first like you weren't miked up and your top four, and you just couldn't believe how far to guys like you got in this competition I'm like. Oh, yeah to to real. Real bad guys so look at or to have a conversation with you guys just totally down players just totally ridiculous. I remember that Yeah I can't wait to talk to you about that. That is one of my favorite behind the scenes moments that jared night literally sat in a steam room for an hour, just talking life well. Actually after watching caitlyn season back. What do you think about these reruns and the three hour edited? Version you into it. Do you like it I? Don't know I. Feel like I like them because it's fun for me as somebody who is on the show to get nostalgic to see my friends just to see like we're all these relationships gop their roots. But I also feel like. You don't like. Get like sink into. It's good for taking a trip down memory lane, but I don't know that it would be interesting for people who. Had never seen these seasons like you're not GonNa get attached characters, but if you WANNA look back over again. I remember that I remember that it's so fun. They're great, but if you WANNA like watch season and feel emotionally invested, just go on Hbo Max or Amazon I tunes and watch the whole thing. Yeah, you know the. I. I'm glad they're doing it. I'm glad this is something. They've invested into to put this content out here during this time it. We're so difficult to have new content. But it is something the bachelor world's wanted for a while. I mean I have heard many times like I've gotten emails and messages. Can they start replaying seasons? You know the edited version I think you can watch a whole season in three hours. I do watch Caitlyn season back and it's. It's hard for me to watch because this is why Ashley Caitlin was such an amazing Bachelorette, and there were so many amazing people on that season lease. I'm biased because I. think there was so many great guys and there is so much drama. And so many storylines there aren't able to be showed and shown that made this season so much more unique than really any season ever seen. There were things that were wildly dramatic in the house, their story lines that were really really like a monumental for us as contestants that were never even shown on the big season, because there wasn't enough time, so then you cut that down to three hours, and it feels like canvas short edited version do Kaitlyn, Bristowe justice and I don't think it can. Because it was so good so often, it was just the best probably the best season and I've ever watched. But you know I'm also a little biased, because I know more of you guys. There's more friends in that season and crystals. WHO's in the? Have you know for many other season? and. To invested to really give it a neutral rating a, but you know it was one of the shining moments that they did show. That a was your sex ED class. Always been one of your favorite city. I. Get, it's so funny that was. There's so much to that. We'll talk about that here in just a little bit. Actually. We promised it, so let's start bringing on these contestants. We've got been zoned from Kaitlyn Bristowe season of the Bachelorette. Welcome to the PODCAST Ben. What's up, guys while you were the man on Caitlin season that sent my husband to the emergency room. I no, let's talk about that boxing day at how jared's very proud, still that he like got up to the finals and he was boxing. You somebody who has a lot of size on him. What did you do like you? Knock him in the head. It was that was. Josh rules this was like the first day pretty much the first or second day that we all met each other, so just getting in the ring with everybody was was was wild, I mean I never thought that I'd be in the right way with jared and all that stuff I mean usually we're in different weight classes of the fact that we were in there together was kinda funny, but I feel terrible. 'cause I mean like I said I just met jared at that point and only concussion. I! DON'T WANNA! Fight this guy. I like this guy. But it was. It was a lot of fun. I remember that day. I also got knocked out pretty good on that day, too By jared actually took a nicer right to the chin. Then what's your feelings leading up? To this week knowing that Caitlyn's season was gonNA air. Excited Man This was appointed my life that I look back very finely. You know it was very memorable for me. I made so many great friends from the show and so looking back. You know it's going to be kind of cool to It was Kinda. Cool to see everything and see everything unfold again. Did your fiance feel weird that like America was going to watch you romantic with another girl. She was she was a little weird at first, but then champion she saw the season, so it's not like. It was anything new that she was seeing I think in the beginning. She was uncomfortable, but now she knows Caitlin Burke Friends so it ended up being totally fine, she was. She's fine with. Cell Phone. Did you guys get is was your wedding affected by covert? Oh Yeah. We're supposed to get married on July twenty fifth and now R- actually end up pushing the next year. We don't have a date set yet, but BUT WE'RE GONNA WE'RE GONNA end up pushing next year. I'm so sorry that sucks. I know a lot of people have been affected by it and we're just one of the many. Well. We you know as we saw. We need to see a lot of you on Caitlyn's recap show and we've talked to you a couple times since then and especially at our live podcast and San, Francisco. You are engaged. You were supposed to be married here in the next month and a half. You're not doing that. But one thing we We miss the recap. Show is just how much of a connection you and Caitlyn had. And then you rarely chose You haven't participated in too much bachelor esque stuff since then. If you can look back on this time going back. You know four and a half years ago. What what were the feelings like entering into this night? One because I kind of felt like the night one. I kind of felt like I, was going to night. One as Caitlin season was about the arrogant. Yeah, no I agree I mean going into night. When I was, I was nervous. I was sweating bullets that it really know what to expect at that point I hadn't really seen too many seasons of it but It was definitely something that I was just excited to see what happened. You know I was just excited. Go for it and you know they didn't really show too much of of my connection with Galen but it's one of those things where it's. You feel like your connection with with the with the main lead you have a certain way that you feel about that person and she doesn't really tell you. She feels and so. I felt like we had a good connection. I felt like everything was was great at the point when I got home, which I was a little bummed about, but looking back on it again. You can definitely tell this shed. Sorry, an extra. Some of the other guys you being one of them but it was definitely a is definitely something. I look back on fondly and I just had a blast with everybody including Gaylon. What shook me watching it back way more than it did. When it originally aired was the fact that there was to Bachelorette's? It's just. So Muslim surgeon stick. It's so crazy that that we were all I know that some people were okay with it, but I feel there be outraged. That happened today just five years later, yeah! That that being said, who did you vote for? I voted for for Caitlin. I had a I. Think I've talked about this before, and you guys show, but I had a great connection with with Grit. Right off the bat. We had a great conversation, but I just felt like there was more deaths to. Kaitlin and I was excited to learn more about so that was intriguing to me. then. You voted for Caitlin, too. I did I went into it actually very interested. In Brit I really thought that She was going to be an after like ten minutes. Which is wild? With each of them. I was just more and more convinced. That CAITLIN was going to be somebody who I would be able to get to know easier. I felt like sh. Our conversation flowed I felt like she was funny. I I felt like she was of A. For lack of a better term like one of the producers before the night one was like hey, in this process one of the beautiful things you can take risks like you can date somebody that you typically wouldn't date and Caitlyn was that for me and I'm really glad that happened I. Think it would have been amazing, but I did vote for Caitlin based on just that ten minute first conversation that we had. Agree. That's all you have to go off combat point. You really are going for ten minute conversation trying to figure out where you wanted to. Kaitlin asked me day. been. What was the most awkward memory from her season on the bats? I know mine. Mine was my entrance. I literally said two words like I couldn't even speak I, said. Nice to meet. You am by and I mean that's how I mean. That's exactly how down. What was your most awkward memory? I think my insurance was probably just as bad as yours. I don't remember I remember walking in the walk in the door. been like all right I'm get sent home. I made for myself for me it. was. Awkward probably rapping on stage. I think I've battled I. Rap Battled Tanner on stage in New York. City and I was I. Don't think I've ever felt more like a fish out of water in my life. I can't imagine tanner wrapping and I don't think they showed it this time around either till. Probably for the best. Definitely for the best well. Hey, you're the man I appreciate you coming on here. Ashley and I have always been big fans of years. We wish you the best. With your upcoming wedding. I know it's not ideal, but thanks for taking some time and joining us here today to talk to us and everybody out there listening. Of course man, thanks for having me love you guys, and I'll be seeing you guys at the wedding. Will your schedule? We'll see then. You got up next We have somebody who is charming. Lovable. Kayla had some amazing moments. Some really passionate kisses. Our one and only Ashley's husband Jared Jerry come on that almost soon as podcast. Ours everybody doing hello. Well when you were waiting for you to get on, we were talking about how crazy it was that Brit and Caitlyn Virtue Bachelorette's together, and I'm thinking about how normal rejection on the show feels, which is like one handsome man or one beautiful woman, who you've developed feelings for is rejecting you in front of the nation, but with Brits she had a vote of thirty men who voted against her like that is far more heartbreaking. And it's GonNa. Affect your self esteem way more. Can you believe? Can you believe that we did this oh? You're asking me to comment on that. Damn all right. I mean not all thirty guys voted against her for from reading the room. It was probably sixty forty Caitlin, and also it was stupid. You have two. Incredible women. Both beautiful smart both like out of almost all of our leagues. And, like where supposed to vote on the girl that we want to date, it was the stupidest thing I've ever had. Endure which I guess, says you know that I'm very lucky in life, but it was just it was ridiculous. This was before Bachelor in paradise was a thing like this wasn't bad. Going on Bachelor in paradise wasn't like coveted position. I'm wondering if it was more so leading up to that with her. Just been link or caitlyn would have no I. DON'T WANNA battle does go on Bachelor in paradise. Now you always want to be the Bachelorette. If producers were like. Hey, you have a fifty fifty shot to being bachelorette. You take it. I mean it just shouldn't have had two girls. Be Bachelorette, has an aged well I think the show would agree with that. And that's all I got. For. You know who I voted for it by the way nightshirt. Do you get off? As he did as you stated in the episode, he looks like he just off. I'm jealous. Was, I saying br I voted for, but listen like. I said it was just talk about what you said on instagram today It was just like I said I. Mean you're voting for two incredible women, and then I would talk to Kaitlyn and she was awesome. And she was awesome, and it was just like I walked into the room, and then the reason I voted for Broncos. Because before the show started, I felt like I would have more of a connection with Britain than ironically when I met them both I had more of a connection with Caitlin. So like that night I was going back and forth and I was like well. I guess I'll go with my initial reaction, which was stupid because I went off my reaction before i. met them in person. Brett was also so you're type stereotypically like that was your safe spot? You're comfortable zone. Yeah. That's a fair Stephen. Jared. Let's flash through this season. which was CAITLIN season We had talked about early on. We hit at it. We've brought it up on the podcasts before, but one of my favorite memories from our time the Bachelorette. Was You and I were the final four. The other two men were away. You and I had access to a steam room. We also knew that cameras and audio equipment cannot make it into the steam room, so we went in there to have a conversation. One of the first real conversations we have in a long time. We sat in this room Ford. No less than an hour talking about how why old. Absolutely wild this last few months have been our listeners out there. Probably wondering like what does this mean to you? Jared to be in a steam room for an hour with me. What what was like? Well I think you and I bonded in that moment, because both you and I are on the same page from the very beginning which was. What the Hell is going on? And what are we doing right now? And what's happened, and then you know as you guys know you're always miked up on camera. Even when you know a lot of things, don't get aired, but you're still on camera twenty four seven, and so this was the first time we're Ben and I really were not miked up non on camera and just able to actually talk about things. We were afraid to say on camera. which was okay. What's going on? You're always like. Oh, no, I'm I'm ready and I'm fully invested in while you are in bed and I were. It was also at the same point like are we ready is this? Are we good to go? Are we making the wrong decision? This is happening so fast. And so that was the first time you and I were able to really say that and feel comfortable, saying that it was like therapy, plus for all the listeners out there I got to see ben in his boxers sweat. I'm sure that was a very nice image for a lot of women out there. It was it was a good time. I was one of my favorite moments. It really was mine to know was and you're right. I remember looking at you being like I think I'm ready to get engaged, but yeah am I crazy like we we were like. Do you know Caitlyn's men name because I? Do remember that. Actually said. Jared. I've always appreciated the way you've handled humor and humility. It wasn't able to be shown on the recap show. But as much as it should have been. But when it came to Kaitlin. Do you feel like? Your connection with her was a lot because she's always made us laugh. Do you feel like it was a lot of the laughing back and forth? Of more humorous connection, Yeah Oh. Absolutely and thank you for saying that Bro. You know I feel the exact same way towards you. Bend your someone. I've definitely looked up to. Since the day I met you going to Caitlin Yeah our connection was definitely more. Well there was romance. It was romantic relationship. It was far more based in friendship because we just laugh constantly, and I remember before the Rose ceremony where I got sent home. The cocktail party was canceled that night and I remember before the cocktail party got canceled. I was like I. Really Need to talk to Kaitlin because every time we hang out. We never talk about the future or like marriage or kids, wars just present in the moment and laughing, which is a good sign, but also. I'm not sure how I feel about it like I feel like I need to be like hey. Is this something that's going to last? So. I agree with you is definitely rooted in friendship. And I do wish that I could quote dumb and dumber with him like Kaitlyn did. It's my. Back? It's like the only my fault. It's the only afl like major flaw in our relationship. You don't get my humor and it makes me sad I quote Billy Madison Happy Dumb and dumber anchorman and she's like what the hell. Are you talking on anchorman clothes? You get in quits at times. It's pretty good. I don't watch boy movies slurry, jared. We asked ashes earlier. If it was awkward for her to be married and watch her husband make out with her friend. I want to ask you the same question. Is it awkward for you to watch yourself? Make out with your friend now. It was kind of awkward to watch everybody make out with each other. You know because like I saw you make out with her and I'm like it's like it's like watching your friends make out. To Party and you're. You're two friends that you've been friends with for years like drunkenly. Make out and you're like. Oh, that's just weird to see visually, and it was the same thing here because we've been through so much history now like watching myself with Caitlin you with Caitlin, not even like it wasn't that. Where with Nick I guess but like Cupcake, and like I didn't see tanner wonder tenor kissed her at all. They did he daddy? They said he said they never aired it. But it was definitely like worse watching myself. Caitlin with Ashley because she. Because you put your hand on her cheek and you don't do that to me anymore. I do sometimes not as much as I used to, but we know it's. Married for a year. I'll go off the air I'll put the hand there is. You know that I like that, listen. What if crystals is season was Aaron. You had to watch my sloppy kisses him. Would that make you feel weird? You just laugh. I think it would definitely make me cringe. Wasn't your thing with Kissing Chris like you swallowed his mouth or something? Jared I don't know it was beore the most attractive Jesus, but I really got it down. Pat With you in paradise. Those were say those weren't awkward at all so. I give myself a lot of credit for that one. Well, okay jared. I love you Ashley obviously loves you. it was really fun to watch you back in to see you shine once again. Thanks for coming on here. Thanks for catching us up on everything going on your life. But once again man, it was I watched this season I, I watched this season back. I've been looking at pictures today, just of the season too reminiscent and all and It's it's incredible that the people that you meet through this experience along the way, and it made me have a sense of joy about the show. That I've always felt, but it's turned more until like a a memory for me, but it re reminiscing on this made me smile, because of the pictures of you and I and our friendship, so I appreciate buddy. Thanks for coming on here did of course yeah, the feelings mutual mutual love you buddy like it's cool. For. His part. Yeah, just like when you think back where it all started and now like Ben, you're someone that's spoke at mine and Ashley's wedding. And obviously you know nick. Who would've thought nick? At the wedding and delivered a speech during our ceremony my God. So, it's pretty incredible. That'd be to buddy love. You Love You, my my wife. Thinks. One of our friends. He was also Ashley and Jeers Wedding. One of my favorite people from Kaitlyn Bristowe, season and one of Ashley's people as well and also I think when a Caitlyn's favorite. It's Chris. Dr Chris Strandberg welcome to the almost famous podcast. Great to be here? Chris I! Need to come in and visit you because I think I need invisible line. Actually actually your perfect pusher, the a conversation for another time one of the most disappointing things about this bachelor. Greatest seasons ever episode was that they didn't show you crying. Hysterically cliff. I can't believe it was the best. TV ever made on eclipse. Tears of sadness, a puddle of disappointment underneath my face and they didn't show it. Aired and you had to watch CAITLIN. Take off in that helicopter. Yes and you're stranded there on that cliff. I was stranded there on the cliffs. Because! They were filming it. They actually got a second helicopter, but I could take either helicopter so I just watched my hopes and dreams fly away. This is a funny thing, though because people don't understand, is about the show and I, it's a question. We could ask a lot, so it is true. CAITLIN did flyway on a helicopter probably took her a good hour to get back to the hotel. You had to then dry. How long does it take? So I drove in the back of vague small ban, and took three and a half hour. The, exact thing that happened to me in the badlands I watched Chris Leave and I was like you know once I recovered from the dumping. I go okay, so our helicopter right there like I. Don't know the van is years and it was a three hour drive back. Yours was even more desolate than mine actually. At least you've got to see the beauty that was Ireland right, it was orders. It's always one of the it's like. It is one of the sad parts. Is it really is like a sad moment? And then like reality hits you go crap like I could be eight hours from any type of civilization or any airport and the lead who does dumped me is flying high through the sky, and we'll be back in no time for dinner Chris. We do remember this crying scene and be just because we didn't get to see a lot of you on the recap didn't mean that you didn't have a big part in this season you were. In shambles, friend about this break-up. How long did that last after? A how long did your feelings for Caitlin Linger? I wasn't channels. I would say that the. Feeling for. Kate League about two weeks. And then I got back and I was like you know I. Don't know who the winner is going to be. And that's the right. Matt at the moment. Healing ackward his friends when wrapped up in the axe lorette world. Every all the emotions riding high, but you're also isolated, and so this becomes one central office. When you get back to reality, you're like wait around I'm okay. You made a grand introduction though with the cupcake car that really will be in Bachelor montages. For, the rest of the shows broadcast to whenever that may be right. Talk US, A. Lasting impression. Talked about how the idea came about the? Have you been the cupcake car? Well. My whole thing was how people are GonNa find me interesting on his show. I'm dentists. It's me that something. Matt most people kind of drag going to the dentist and he's probably some guys pretty nerdy, which is true but I needed to stand out. So what better than the think of a bad dental on so I decided to do something very sweet or Caitlyn. And at the time Chris which was roll up in a cup, Ache and I thought that that was going to be the end of it, but then I decided to sir all a fake. Stuck all the way vigers later. I know. We know that you don't like being called cupcake and yet it's what I call you. Okay I, you know I understand I'm. Less than grateful that I could be part of the experience. I got to meet the perfect Ben and I have friends. So that's my name than Soviet. Man It is It is wild to look back on this. We've been talking to Zoran in jared. Self kind of about this. The season and I asked the question. Is it weird. Looking back now after the recap is aired and seeing the pictures that have K-. K Kinda surfaced from the contestants. What are your emotions like looking back on this time in your life. It was I. Mean It's serious style? I mean that was a time when we all took a break from our phones, and from reality, and we were just present and Muir up against this adventure. We had no idea what what amounts to you know. INSTAGRAM will is not really a part of the show until you know. Probably actually season in the season the first kind of era, so really it was just a special time remained friends. We got to go crazy adventure and for me. It was all positive I. Mean I didn't are taken much of the drama then I. Don't particularly that either, so you probably had all experience only so, Chris. Did. End Up with Caitlin became really good. Friends with CAITLIN cleaned caitlyn's teeth many times. But now has found another love in his life, and you've been with her for almost two years now Coming up on two years. Beckoned! I've been dating or Year and a half year, so it's been great. She's a a wonderful person. Really deposited. Hind Arts and You know it's. Opening my dental practice, it's been like tough working lock, but she's always been very supportive. And under for. Well Chris were happy for you. Man It's always good to see that smiling face years still in my opinion, the best looking man to ever come through the Bachelor Franchise Dr Chris Strandberg.

Going on your shades, you know, put the call. Writing the. I Two. Five. AM A burning fire. Down down down in flames. Berg! NFL. Walk. Fail. burning. Welcome to the Tom Debris, so they've got a mess Ruth Philip. sexton Mike Johnson join a Tom Decree. And our leading music as home, free. Ring Fire. Johnny Cash Song. Burn thing.

Remember exactly what you're talking about. Yeah home for he wanted Nick Nick. Nick Cliche. Where did they have that I can't remember anyway I? Just remember watching it. Yeah, that's something I. Really. Those guys want it. That's and. They also do. A version of. God bless USA just them. Yeah, at Mount, Rushmore and it's. It's different in some ways. It's as good if not better. Than the Lee Greenwood because the. It's real tight. Just, five of them the League Greenwood. Though I mean his voices still just seventy seven years. Amazing, amazing, yeah! So. It's good to see people still doing something patriotic nowadays, yeah right. Really good. All right, what do y'all WanNa talk about v-shaped recovery could still happen. This is an article from Jim O'Neill Project Syndicate. Since March I've been more open than other commentators to the possibility of a V. shape. From the pandemic induced downturn. Though? I also consistently warn of struck structural challenges. Facing many economies in the decade ahead. I. Don't know what this guy. Smoking I I you know, I see that there's been major. Changes to a lot of economies and a lot of stuff isn't coming back, you know. Anybody somebody. Somebody had to put this story in here. Let's Let's have it. Why are waiting? Why are we talking about this? So, you're the coffee. Got! It was it was me. And part of the reason was because headline. itself is pretty provocative. You know or unbelievable I guess. That, despite everything that's been going on, we could have a v-shaped recovery. Stock Market and if the stock market is. An indicator of To come, but they Konomi just because the stock market's forward-looking mechanism it is plausible that we could have e- shape. He's talking about an economic recovery. Not just the stock market. Man Street as well as Wall Street. Yes, and his main arguments, he's got this indicator by the Jim O'Neill used to be with Goldman Sachs I don't know if he's retired now, but he was the guy who coined the phrase bricks which was emerging market countries. Yeah, So he's got this indicator which he created a Goldman Sachs called. The global leading indicators say looks at economic data from six seven different. Countries and a few different metrics. He looks at manufacturing and the US looks at The Belgian business, confidence survey the South Korean, monthly export figures and He says that all these indicators are actually improving. And he thinks the main reason behind that is. Just arrest points of governments throughout the world to this crisis where there's been so much fiscal stimulus that's been pumped in and central banks that well acted together and pumped in money and Lord, interest rates, and so forth. So he says that there is a possibility that we could have a quick recovery if you know as things normalize. You know I was with a guy today, and one of the things we were talking about. You know it. It seems to me and we've seen this. In our practice here. That the. Real driver. Of Economic Prosperity. Is Manufacturing. I'll just give you an example. Toyota you. You look at people who walk out of there after twenty five or thirty years with a sizeable. Retirement. Account. Where else? or at what other kind of job? would. They have been able. In the private sector that is that's not the government sector. People getting stuff like that all the time, but where else in the private sector would you have seen that? kind of wealth get built up and you know to me, America. needs to manufacture. More things we we need to. If we can bring manufacturing back I think that's why you like the semiconductor area because That is manufacturing and it's still a lot of. It's still done here in the US, not all of it, but quite a bit is. and. It's a value add. It is and I think a lot of manufacturing. Welcome back to the US. We are already seeing. Indications of that although I'm not so sure if they create the same number of jobs that These manufacturing industries once did just because of automation and robotics. So. Some of these jobs are going to get automated even a company like Amazon. If you go to their warehouse, there's a lot of robots that are doing things which humans used to do at one point. so. I think the future. Involve more manufacturing locally. more Tweedie, tweedy painting and such but also be manufacturing. That's done by robots and manufacturing. That's automated So. And that's that's just the nature of how this has progressed. You know Every generation manufacturing stays, but the technology that is involved with manufacturing constantly evolves, and we are at the stage where machines can do a lot of manufacturing and. That's not necessarily a bad thing that means that the quality of life of people can also improve. They don't have to do some of the manufacturing, which was perhaps at some point, dangerous or not as productive. On to to your point Dr That's where. You know job. Trends move towards things like specialists like engineers to understand the manufacturing process to help design the robotics and automation processes You still have to manufacture the robots to to your semiconductor point all of that robotics automation. All those processes require. All kinds of different semiconductors yeah. On the job said though I mean you're looking. You know you've seen it. In a lot of smaller towns you'll mining towns in Kentucky or you know steel different things where you've had this shift to automation and from a big picture kind of thing you have to have you on the employment side. You know we're looking at eleven percent unemployment right now. Some of these jobs will not be coming back for that very reason. So. How do they counteract that from? You know in inflation and deflation standpoint you know consumer spending? What you, what programs on the retraining or how do these people that are now out of a job? Get Jobs. Yeah. There's really no easy answer to that question. like you said some of these. We are looking to you for the answer. That it's not gonna be an easy process, and that's just how it's been We saw that with coal mining jobs, you know. Some of these jobs were lost. Seven eight ten years ago. They haven't really come back. the coal industry's been shedding. In Harlan county where I was born. It's been shedding workers probably since the sixties. I mean There used to be eighty five nine hundred thousand people in Harlan County that. You know and there were several major mining companies. Right now I don't know of any. Right, it's been a very long and slow decline. But a it has been a decline. Right. And the challenges the demographic. That's involved with these industrial say. A coalminer lost his or her job and David Sixty years old. At that point in life. It's hard to retrain and go into another priority, whereas if the person is maybe twenty, perhaps they could retrain and move on to something else so There is co for e Mint re-training, and these jobs are so these jobs that are lost can be replaced with other jobs but It's not going to be an easy transition. My question. And, my point I'd like to put out there to. Is You know those jobs is Dr? Said were lost a long time ago. I think that automation and the pandemic. I think that. That could be lost this. Go around. are a lot of lower income food service job. You know the McDonald's worker where you go in and you now you can go in and hit. Hit the buttons on the screen and order your food and you it up. Yeah, you know from robotics and automation standpoint those jobs. Those jobs might not come back right and. That becomes more of A. The that becomes more of I guess a policy. Do you Do you provide education assistance, or do you provide you know it'll eventually be some sort of assistance program? Yes, that's that's more than likely. It'll have to be something like that. I mean if you look at how things have progressed over the last hundred years, you know people have gone from maybe working sixty hours to today about forty hours a week five days a week. That was the labor union movement and you know there were tremendous social upheavals specially in England. To Keep child labor, and just write a lots of a abuses that were going on in terms of a labor. That's true right. And then the second thing that happened was in sixteen seventy s more of them joined the labor force sort of San. You had happened around world, war. Two, and afterwards right happening right was assassinated. Thing yeah, right? So. My point being that. An improvement in technology and more automation does not necessarily have to be a bad thing. It could improve the quality of life embraced. You're a luddite. A lot and you know they were Br. Remember Breaking Printing Press. Turn stuff up because. People out of job. You know you should embrace technology for sure because it's just a better way of doing things. Right so you from the spinning wheel you went to you know caught in or whatever so yes I mean that. Technology Has To be embraced at some point now it is disruptive it. It's not easy for people who are involved in the job said disrupted. But I mean you've got to get used to so here's a huge disruptor here. Stocks hit. All Time High Y'all know what I'm talking about Tesla I mean. I don't know if I could. Know how to use it Tesla. He doesn't have to. Well! It is. And we were talking about this the other day. Ought to give you the car because they use it to. Bring in so much it's like a it's like A. It's like you're driving in a piece of Google or something. You know it's it's. It's something in everything you do and. I don't think people understand this. Alon. Musk has a vision. Where he's going with it and It is definitely being embraced by the market right now whether they're selling any vehicles are making any money is almost immaterial. Right at this point it is. Yes, it's the it's the idea of what is possible. Which is driving the stock price up? Just you know what this company could be at some point down the road and you're seeing that with companies like Amazon although there comes a point you know in the late nineties ever so many companies that were disrupting and. By the mid nineties, and the late nineties view that the Internet was the next big thing, and there were all these companies that were involved with the Internet and their stock prices rent up twenty thirty fifty times. been a lot of them. Don't exist anymore. Yes, so and and it was the same, read the railroad and canal boom that happened at one point. It was the same with every new technological boom, but the radio television. There are companies that are in those at the leading edge. But. Do their stock prices make sense you know at some point, so that's the question you know. We have to ask with a lot of these tech companies today. Yes, the future is going to be different. But is that already priced into some of these stocks, no doubt well in the from an investment standpoint. You look at what the the hot. Trade is and it's been during the during the covert situation. People are looking for something where their money's not where something's not GonNa. Go Away Right, so they're looking at the company. Saying okay. Apple's not going away. Microsoft isn't going away. But the thing that I think a lot of investors are missing is. You look at Intel in the year. Two Thousand Intel just got back to where it was in two thousand, so yes, and their earnings have. Gone up every year. Bright right but. If! You're if you're an investor and you're buying. The Fang stocks right now at these valuations. You're saying okay. The company's not going away. That might be true, but. Was In there. Would they be the thing stock theme? The Ang. But you buy apple three hundred and eighty dollars a share thinking okay, apple's not going away. That may be true. The company's not going away. But how long is IT GONNA TAKE For you to actually. Your money and that's that's the thing. I think a lot of investors are missing right now. They're just parking, money and something. That's not a place to park money. This is an investment when when you're. Right it's not risk-free. There's risk. Can World Right so now? It's true. I was just reading that you know Warren. Buffett bought apple a few years ago and today forty three percent of the Berkshire, hathaway portfolio as stock, so imagine all the other companies owns. American, express and Coca Cola, and so many other companies, but apple is now forty three percent of the entire portfolio. So that's the that's how it's. Basically Apple. Coke for. Early eighties. Apples that's that's the insane part, right? Right from a sports perspective I put it like buying Lebron James Straight out of the womb, and saying you know he's GonNa win me six. NBA. Titles while he still hasn't grown into that, yeah. Sports right now I know you can't use that interval. I've been watching the basketball tournament. From win from what year Oh it's live this year.

OVER TO UTAH. Okay Article From The Wall Street Journal. Banks could get twenty four billion dollars in fees from the P P, p loans, the loans that the small business administration has Extended to. small businesses true banks. and. As I understand from talking to people who know people who are with banks. It's a bureaucratic nightmare. And They're supposed to be Forgiveness for these loans and they don't know how to do it. the paperwork. Hasn't been established on how to make them. Forgivable loans so I don't know whether these banks. Get paid fees up front for doing the loan and have already been paid or if it depends on. How the loan works out whether they forgive it or not, but it's says here. J. P. Morgan Chase. And Bank of America are in line to split between one and a half and two point six billion dollars in fees. For being the conduct of the government aid program for small businesses. Stricken by the corona virus shutdown, according to an analysis of newly released data. In total. The more than four thousand Lynn Lynn lending institutions in the analysis are in line to split fourteen point three billion to twenty four point six billion. In processing fees for P. Loans. You know but. Question is. Is it worth all the trouble it. Are they going to get paid? What's going to happen? A lot of loans have been made supposedly to be forgiven. Because that was, the whole idea is like giving them money and now they don't know how to forgive them what I've heard. So yeah, I think. Two things I. Think about this the first thing that I point I wanted to make That kind of interesting is that? You know the whole reason that the PCP program got started was because government mandated shutdown, and this was to help. Small Businesses Survive you know through through the program, but on the flip side The government realized that. You know by shutting everything down. There was damage done to the banks as well. You know you think of you know in the thrall of March. And April, a lot of these banks were taken loss reserves in the billions of dollars. you know I feel like these fees on these loans potentially are the high will give you. These fees on these loans without saying that we're on the banks out again. It's kind of a letting them. Make someone a backhanded way of of you know. Pat Them on the back You know ultimately and everything that I've I've read you know really from both sides of the table. Is that there? There's going to be something politically that. The IRS can't keep up with this like you know. The the not the Treasury Department I mean like none of these people really can keep up with all that like you said the bureaucratic work, so it's GonNa. Be Anything under a certain amount is just automatic. Just flip the switch done. When you have to look to they they have an out. On the forgiveness part because the SBA determines if it's forgivable or not, and they keep adjusting the terms of it, you know duration whose l. you see all the political backlash of these companies that took it and they're saying well. You shouldn't have taken it. This is for small business, so if the SBA determines that by whatever set of rules there is that keep changing? that. They determine that this bar was. Well then they're going to claw back the fees that they paid the bank. And so it's it's big brother. All the way around. And I think the the. Rock and hard place that they're stuck between two though is. You know if they do something like that. then. It kills trust then you know if you if you need the banks, step up in time of crisis again. They're not gonNA. Do it. Maybe, maybe not I mean I mean. They they they've been. Or you can yeah. They? Go back, okay, the banking. I'm just GonNa say this and I don't care if somebody agrees with me or not. When you? got. FDIC insured deposits. You affectively nationalized the banking system. That's what happened when you when when that when they had to have their deposits. Insured by the government You have no such thing as a private bank that can take deposits. COULD HAVE ONE And have have them rated by? You know a rating service. But Basically FDI insured. In insured banks! Are. Essentially, they are kind of told what to do by the government, and therefore this thing of the bank's not being there the hell they want. They'll be there if the government tells them to that that they got. Tarp shoved down their throats. Wait not where they want to take it or not. They had to take it. Paulsen sat down in a room and said you're taking this. You're taking this and not a one of them could. They couldn't do anything why because they're FDIC insured institutions told them who they were buying to yeah. They're basically exactly. You're buying. Merrill Lynch. That happened ten years ago and but the only reason it happened is because. Amount of years before that. You know whenever the last banking crisis was. That caused the FDIC. To have to come into existence. That's when it. Came into existence so this is taken into another step. FDIC had to be created because of a lack of trust. In the banks because what happened was Frat. Fractional reserve banking is great. If everything works. But you get enough loans. They go bad and enough peop. Go Watch the movie What's the big short? No, the one that showed at Christmas time every year with Jimmy Stewart. Oh. It's a wonderful life yeah. That's A. that's a run on a bank. I've never seen that movie. Yeah, they're. They remember when they all come in Warner money and waiting for the waiting, waiting for for it to close for the day. That's what happened area by one the all if all the depositors want their money at one time. You're in deep Doo Doo. That's by the federal. Reserve system was created to prevent Van? Runs and banks although ostensibly yes, the Fed was created in. Nineteen. Thirteen and then the great depression happened. They actually did not do a good job of preventing. Runs and banks to did not, and that was the post. Heightening The the fair was was actually tightening at that point when they learned their lesson. Remember Nike said. WE'RE GONNA helicopter in money and all. WanNa what we've done in the last two months three months. Essentially helicopter money right exactly. And then after the depression that was the glass steagle act which try to make banks not take as much risk because the FIA separated. That's why you have a a J. P.. Morgan and Morgan Stanley because what happened was. They were all part of the House of Morgan and they split them apart investment banking separate from yeah, they had formed to different companies and. You know They spun off. They're actually down here. The old Security Trust building day broke off the. Securities dealing portion became spring gate and company. Tom Spring, Gates grandfather that was that firm was formed as part of the Glass Steagle Act. And that's how that's how that firm came about. In the newspaper. It's a matter of history Lots of banks had. stock. Dealing Operations in them and glass. Require them to split right. Down they've merged back to get in some cases, they merged back. Go Because I. Mean Look at J. P.. Morgan Chase Right. They do everything now. That's true right. Yeah, so they they did relaxed rule setting. It was in the ninety s and Bill Clinton. Relaxed it, but like the gentleman that we met yesterday he was telling us that banks have become. Like utilities where You know they're regulated so tightly. And then there's it's not a purely private enterprise anymore. There's always the government in world so utilities. Have, to be completely wedded to the PSC. To tell them what investments they can make and how much of return? They can make on them and so utilities. Are. Town of political animals in a sense and banks are becoming that way well. They already are I thought it. He irate. So I mean you know? You you gotTA. Find businesses. That where? To quote you animal spirits. Kind of unbridled entrepreneurialism. Can still exist. And that I was quoting John Maynard, Keynes, said animal spirits were. This credit is due right. Robert Shitter used that phase in the ninety s, so that was a canes quote. I believe so. That's very originated yes. I think to to that point to talk about animal spirits, and freeing yourself from a nationalistic I guess regime, L. O. Eight. Oh nine created. Oh I, don't on created things like aircraft leasing companies, you know. Container Leasing Company a lot of. Companies. That own hard assets at the banks didn't want have. They couldn't be in that business anymore and. My question would be. Are you going to see something like that? Come from? From what's happening right now? You know we're talking about all this automation and things like that, but it is going to be you know a push towards. You know a new sector new sectors being created potentially. Right, and and we've seen in something like lending club, which is peer to peer lending. That's something that they're zoom video has yes. so yes, even a company like blackstone mortgage trustor. KYW MAIRA crisis. They are like banks in that. They are not doing the banking. Limited club is more. Like! It matches. You matches lenders up with right. Into mediates banks remember when they had the big meltdown and everybody thought it was Linden. Tree I. Went down. was funny so a few. Weeks ago, this company called Zoom. Info went public. And everyone talks with zoom and. The stock price and as a tesla, T S L A, DOT, com, company, stickers, T, S A and Iran that. Up to. Say It's amazing. How much speculation that there is some of these? Hundred hundred percent, and then people realized that. Real Arthur rock. Thirty six incident by some. Wrong House Tulsa. How? Dense, some retail investors can be. The do people that are on on What you call it Robin Hood Steph. Look at look at what they're buying hearts, yeah! That could be a good business more than you think of tickets which are close to take which are and then you just go public. We all talk a little bit about what we do before we.

We're talking ten years fourteen years. You know the time horizon and worse or no better than a CD to. Talk about that right? There was a writer on an annuity where. It guaranteed seven percent withdrawal. Until the contract value is exhausted. Which means basically we're going to. You can take seven percent of the contract value, which is what the annuity is worth or seven percent of premium until it goes zero. That's no different than if you had your money in a savings account, and you said I wanNA. Take one hundred thousand dollars or a million dollars. I'M GONNA. Take seventy thousand a year.

Eurozone countries feel the COVID-19 pain

"The euro-zone economy contracts at its sharpest pace in twenty five years live from London. This is the marketplace morning report from the BBC World Service. I'm Victoria Craig. Good Morning France and Spain posted their biggest declines on record in the first quarter. That's as the overall euro-zone contracted three point eight percent. In the first three months of the year as people were forced to stay home to prevent spread of covert nineteen. Italy was the first European nation to impose a national lockdown. Though that starting to ease the country is also expected to have plunged into recession. And as the BBC's Mike Johnson reports the road to recovery will be long the shutters finally opening on Camilo Coke shop because Europe strictest and longest running lockdown has come to an end for her. She earns to Children's clothing stores in central Rome. I was glad because I really needed. The money was both terrifying in a negative way in a positive way almost two months. The shutter stayed down on Camilo shops in the middle of this month though. She was allowed to reopen as Italy's tough quarantine measures began to be relaxed. That's because baby clothes were classified as essential goods while the global concern about the risk of a new wave of infection if economies restart too quickly. Camille has to support a seven year old son and need the money. I had to pay loads of bills rants now though some money starting to come in again my goal is to go at least two fifty percent of what. I usually do in this period of the year from Monday. Parks will reopen and all manufacturing and building work can restart. All shops will be allowed to reopen in mid-may and from June the first so we'll bars restaurants hairdressers and beauty salons but the cost of the shutdown is still mounting. I would say roughly twenty percent of GDP will be lost. This year and recode Umberto is professor of economics. At the University of Syrian large enterprises are fairly array are now small enterprises have very limited financial capacity so many of them were not reopened. Rome's relations with the European Union deteriorated as the corona virus. Took hold and Italy's neighbors proved reluctant to rush to its aid but you leaders have now endorsed nearly five hundred ninety billion dollar rescue package which gives countries the right to borrow from the euro zone. Bailout found back in Rome. Camillo cocky said regardless of all of that businesses. Like us will struggle for sometime. It looks to me that unfortunately we're going back to Middle Ages because we're GONNA have economic problems. I mean the damages are GonNa last and while Camilo tries to keep your business afloat people in other areas including tourism still waiting to know when they can welcome foreign visitors back to Italy. I'm the Mike Johnson for marketplace. Despite today's data showing the damage corona virus has done to the euro-zone economy in the first quarter European shares. Are Little changed now. The focus turns to the European Central Bank. It's so far pledged more than one trillion dollars in support but chief Christine Lagarde has said there are no limits to the tools the e C could use to fight the crisis. I N G is Karston. Bresca explains when more measures could be deployed. I think they'll have to announce something soon not necessarily today. 'cause we now have two six extremely exciting week since the last meeting with lots of announcements new. Q. E. The pandemic emergency program and I think right now is the moment to take stock and then wait until the June meeting will also bring the latest around a forecast and to that point second quarter data could arguably be worse than the first quarter data. We're seeing today. The has been crystal clear that government support through fiscal spending measures needs to be bolstered. Ten governments do more. Governments can definitely do more. Interest rates are extremely low. There is lots of loans being made available for for governments. They are territories in the north. East we can still do something. Warmness is to to calm. Financial markets and the other one is to provide ample liquidity into the banking sector. That banks are able and willing to provide them nose to the read economy. Well no the latest. Ecb policy decision at seven forty. Five eastern time I N G chief economist Karston Brodsky. Thanks so much for your time. You're welcome well. As officials work to combat the economic impact of covert nineteen hopes arising here in the UK for Corona virus vaccine to prevent more people from getting sick pharmaceutical giant. Astrazeneca has signed a deal with Oxford University to produce and distribute a drug as the BBC's Stephen Ryan reports. The vaccine is still in the early development and testing stages and there's no guarantee but the UK's Health Secretary Matt. Hancock said today the new agreement between Oxford and AstraZeneca gives the UK the best chance of a breakthrough to defeat this corona virus. Several hundred people have so far taking part in clinical trials at Oxford University. But Sir John Bell a professor of Medicine says scaling up so enough doses can be manufactured. Has Its challenges the vials that you put the vaccine in. There's only two hundred million dollars left in the world now because they've all been sucked up by various people who can anticipate a vaccine coming along so so there's lots of challenges in getting this to work enter AstraZeneca. The company will give the Oxford project scaled to produce at a mass level. Three's academy we cut right with more. Biotech companies could avoid with of some sort of an initial the industry. Both collaboration and competition AstraZeneca boss. Paschal Dario says making money on the vaccine isn't a top priority.

I mean that's typical. Yes not all this weekend weekend. I've got I've got one scheduled every weekend. But still you know it's like fuck. It's the last thing I want to do. You know what I'm a good parents. I'm GonNa do this shit that suggested for my kid 'cause it's good for him to be hanging out outside of school with kids his own age so I had to play the end.

The steelers suck some more so that's basically my weekend. ooh Did zoo have a friend who invited you who owns a boat or something callans. My Dad has a we talked about this. He belongs to a yacht club. He sales so no doubt yeah. I remember it was around a holiday but I didn't know he owned a yacht. He doesn't own a yacht. He belongs to a yacht club so they own a bunch of yards and you just take out the ones that are available aw that's a fun concept. How much is that per month? I don't think it's a lot believe it or not. I think a couple of hundred bucks maybe not even that's the thing that's like his country three club well. He's an instructor as well so I think he even. He made me get a break because of that he certified well anytime you want to invite me in the family. We'd love to do that yeah. That sounds like fun all right. Let's Talk Emmy's in a second but I shut your pie hole for thirty seconds seconds. I've gotta shamelessly plug and let all of our listeners know. I've got merch out.

Pop stuff dot com every single dollar goes to the charity of Perez Hilton's Children Dron so it would be so appreciated and he just just take a look. Don't buy anything I'm not saying by. Just take a look by chop stuff dot com all right. Did you watch the Emmy Awards awards. I did not neither did I. Who cares right? I thought you because you love TV I do love TV but I don't care what other people I think about my tv if that makes any sense but then it's all your favorite TV stars giving speeches and all this okay but you know how I feel about seeing people out of character and and it takes me out of it. I don't like to know too much about my actors and such I kind of liked that. There are mystery so it's it's the opposite of everything I like. I mean I saw some like the viral tirol moments refined like Tasha Leo and clapping all weird or or the Kardashians getting laughed at. Did you see that no I did. Did they get booed. No they didn't get booed. They got laughed. At which is it's like the second cousin of being booed. It's not okay so they were introducing an award right or they were introducing something. I don't WanNa be incorrect because I like being correct. They were onstage Kim and Kendall Handle Jenner and they said the following our family knows he just three things. I want to start laughing. Our family knows firsthand How truly compelling television comes from real people just being themselves and then people just started laughing at them because people the audience are like that's funny right because that's not what they do? Go truly compelling or shows truly I mean come on. I gotta say though they deserved that I might a fan fan of booming as I've spoken about in the podcast before but they deserve being laughed at because they should have changed that language no I to me. I thought it was a joke. They were going for the laugh at a joke for you go. That was not a joke. Oh see I thought that was a joke. They were definitely going for a laugh there. No they read it serious straight if they were reading it as a joke that's one thing but they did not Maybe they didn't get that. It was a joke with the writers wrote it. They were like this'll be funny so you're you're a terrible gauge at this usually so I gotta watch now. Oh let me send you. The clip real quick look at the clip real quick knows firsthand how truly compelling television comes from real people just being themselves telling their stories on well. The joke was written to be a joke but they didn't get it that it was a joke and they didn't stop. They didn't give the comedic pause because they're not comedians this but I think it was written to be a joke. They didn't get it. I still disagree. I don't think it was written to be a joke. I think it was a writer wrote that and got it. Trust me writers smart people. Oh if they knew that it would be funny. They should've paused. Kendall shouldn't Iran into the next line. I don't think they've wrote it as a joke telling you. They wrote that as a joke. They knew that that would be funny. That was funny. It was a funny joke if she would have paused and waited for the applause the room would laugh their ass off which they did anyhow. I don't know I I. I don't think so they should've told them it was obvious. Maybe they thought that they would they would understand that it's tongue in cheek joke. I mean all of those intros usually have some dumb little joke in it I get it. It seems like a funny joke to me. I don't think it was a joke their heads someone should have told them but I still believe it was written as a joke while speaking of a joke. That's what Taylor Swift thinks. Kanye West is not really but sort of Did you get around around to reading that rolling stone profile on yet God this it's so weird because a lot can change in two years. Taylor swift is still massive but she's peaked and I say that as a huge Taylor swift fan and I love her peaked in terms of a lot of people people are just over her. It's really hard to command the general public's attention for a long period of time for anyone yes a matter matter of fact right for a movie for a television show for any sort of pop culture entity. It's it's almost it's nearly impossible because of the Internet yeah but she she did that for for well over a decade you know in a way that far exceeded her peers she surpassed Katy Perry by far she surpassed lady Gaga by far and the only one that I would say she may be equalled is Adele even the last ten years don't hate me because I'm I'm correct here. She even even surpassed beyond say in terms of radio hits and in terms of album sales. I'm not saying she's a better performer than beyond say beyond. I'd say heck may have been sold more concert. Tickets BIAGGI's also in a different stage in her career. I think we're talking about cultural relevance here yeah if you're talking about cultural relevance. I don't think she's bigger than Lady Gaga. I don't think she's bigger than beyond say and I would agree. She's bigger than Katy Perry but I wouldn't agree with anything else that I specified what I said I said in terms radio hits and album sales so more nine year olds blocher music than somebody else's nine year olds. I don't expect lady Gaga to pull the same numbers as Taylor swift us. Taylor Swift writes music for nine year old sometimes so rude no. You're gonNa tell me that the misspelling his son wasn't for nine year olds. Oh come on stupid as fuck. I never liked that song for nine year olds and you know it. That's pandering to nine year olds all right that one. I never never claimed that was a good song but my point is my point who cares about the charts and top whatever hits cultural relevance she's up there with those other ladies. Let's just call that a draw because you could dice it up any way you want I will that's why is mother. You're not listening to me. That's why I very specifically the laid it out for you. I said because of this and because of that I heard you anyways I loved this article because I sorta order wish. I wish she would have just done one fucking interview for the reputation out in just one. She didn't do a single one and I get it. It was like a Gimmick Kim acre. I don't know what the fuck it was. It was her plan was what she wanted but just one interview like she's done a lot of good ones recently. This was my favorite. It was a good interview made that whole situation real well what I loved. Actually my favorite thing was not even when she talked about Connie which she did and she gave a lot of context for that but my favorite thing was she addressed the whole oceans playing a victim thing which you yourself have accused her of okay now no I haven't I always have said the same thing and I've been steadfast about it. I've said this sentence. I can see why people. I think that she's playing the victim I have never on this. Show said that she's playing the victim card. That's not what I sang Iran Oh to to those people then fine 'cause. I'm you know I've Got Dad Brain. I'm not always one hundred percent accurate. Maybe ninety nine percent accurate. Let's scale scale that down to about forty two. This is what she said and if they stay you're playing the victim that completely undermines your ability to ever verbalize how you feel unless it's positive so okay. Should I just smile all the time and never say anything hurts me because that's really fake or should I be real about how I'm feeling and have valid legitimate reasons to things that happens is to me in my life but wait. Would that be playing the victim. It's a mental trap right but I love it. She addressed it and even after addressing that there were still people like why is she still talking about Conrad. I happen ten years ago because it's her story to tell and because why not and also because she's smart she's got an album to promote. She knows it will get her attention. Nothing wrong with that. I think right look I've always sat a million times. She can't control the narrative of what people are going to ask her and what they're interested about and if she can't read the room to realize that people aw elephant was sitting in the middle of the room I think she did and I think she said. Let me talk about this once and for all as you said she didn't do it in the whole reputation anti-gay landscape context yes he gave the context exactly and I was cool with it I read it. I didn't feel there was any reason that she shouldn't have talked about it like I said people are Gonna ask her that question. She sat down with any good interviewer worth their salt and that's why she's done a lot of softball interviews because they're not going to ask occurred the questions because she's not going to answer them anyhow. She's way too controlling for that but if she were to sit down with someone that said look this is no holds barred they would ask those questions and she hasn't let anyone ask those questions and that was the case here. The journalists for rolling stone set the record straight. Some people were speculating writing that it was a list of pre approved talking points and questions and the journalists said No. She agreed to do an interview with no parameters ramblers so he asked her whatever he wanted and frankly. I don't care about her relationship with her boyfriend and I think that's partly her own doing and that's smart. She's really been so private about it. I don't care about it. I'm more interested in the human things about her like hearing the way that she talked about her former label aw Scott whom she thought was like a father figure to her or or that he thought she thought that he viewed her as a daughter and instead of now she's thinking oh no he just looked at me as fat cow those things to me like wow it makes her human and that's also one of the grievances assists or issues that I have with beyond sate beyond say was the first to really do this whole I am aloof thing. There came a point beyond says career where she stopped. Stop doing any interviews and I hate it. It makes me not like it makes me dislike beyond say because it makes me think she thinks she's so special. She thinks she's she's this goddess. She thinks she's not worthy of showing the world. I'm real I'm human. This is what hurts me. This is what upsets me. Whatever whatever it is so I loved getting to see that from Taylor swift and I loved her sharing her truth and there we go? It's a good rate too. I really enjoyed it and I thought they did a nice nice job and she answered all the questions and and now we're done with it all right honestly honestly honestly we should use a condom but we got distracted get tested rested for HIV but honestly. I'm afraid to find out honestly we've been together for a while so getting tested never really crossed my mind honestly no one wants to think about HIV for but there are things that everyone can do to help protect their sexual health. Condoms are great star. GET TESLA ASK A healthcare provider about all options because honestly our health. It's worth protecting find out more honest about HIV DOT com all right. You didn't want me talking about Aaron Carter last week but you know whether you like it or not this become a big story as I said because it's the same reason when you're driving down the road or on the highway or the freeway anyway whatever you call it and there's a car accident. Everybody just slows down. It's just human nature to rubber neck yeah. It's human nature to slow down. There's a car accident and take a look and there is a human car accident happening right now in the form of Aaron Carter in fact. There's almost too much going on. There's so much going on to the point that it's exhausted. The media ad the media can't keep up with everything Aaron Carter is doing and saying and and the articles have kind of dried up or maybe the media just realizes this guy's in a really bad place right now or they realized that that no one's clicking on these stories because no one cares about Aaron Carter but like I said it's not even about Aaron Carter. It's about people do get you. I get you the drama. Yeah people do care care about a mess that you see in front of your eyes like even the latest the very latest which I don't think I've seen articles about this. It's almost laughable. I mean I can't completely laugh at it because God forbid I mean maybe there's a chance he's telling the truth but last night on twitter Aaron Carter claimed that his brother Nick Carter raped a ninety one year old woman I think a family member a ninety one year old family member I mean let's think about that for a minute a raping a family member. Let's not even give him the time of day. This is silly. You are now giving this troll what he wants. You know this is all he's got you on the tit. He's like well. At least I got res- hope I got the last person that's willing to listen. It just looks desperate on your part who who cares what he says. It sucks because it's voyeuristic and I acknowledge it and I feel I. I feel a little guilty eighteen dirty to be sucked into it when he's clearly having a mental health crisis then don't be it's not that big of a story you started off with. No one else's following this anymore because they realized how ridiculous it is well. I'm still interested in and and I am involved in it now because Aaron Carter dragged ragged me on twitter and even Nick Carter tweeted me about it because I tweeted this video of Aaron Carter with one of his guns and he was making threats. It's actually a very serious thing that is serious but once again. Why are you talking about it? If it's serious call the authorities isn't done with this well. I did tweet the local police department where he lives in Lancaster and he did reveal recently the cops tried to come and I put on a psychiatric hold but for whatever reason it was you know people keep saying why is Aaron Carter Not Putting a psychiatric holds a fifty one fifty. It's really hard to put somebody in a fifty one fifty. I hope that things don't turn out tragic. Things are so serious area that both Nick Carter of the backstreet boys and Aaron Carter's sister Angel have both gotten restraining orders against him imagine that like feeling like you need a legal document and protection from your own brother I would understand that they both have young children this guy they've got guns and is clearly mentally unwell do you. Here's a here's a bigger question to make it more. Maybe appealing to you because you clearly don't give a fuck about Aaron Carter but I still think some some people do. Do you think a social media platforms like twitter which seems to be his goto one do they. I have a responsibility when they see someone who apparently seemingly obviously is struggling with their mental health should they temporarily curl hibbitt them for posting on twitter or on social media. If a valid complaint has been logged logged against you which I'm sure one has yes. I do believe that it is in their best interest to suspend their use of that social platform totally don well I agree with you and he's not been suspended and there's been so many videos of guns and making threats a ton of people with guns and things online is he threatening is he saying he's GonNa kill someone because if he has the cops would have come to his house he's making threats but in a way that's like a roundabout. He's late ladies like Oh yeah be careful. Don't come for me because I got my guns shit like that. You know thirsty. That's all it's just he even claims is that he himself was raped by his dead sister died of an overdose. You can't necessarily discredit him. Yes I can watch me. I think he's full of Shit. Look I just did it. I can discredit him. I don't care he's got you on the tit. That's the expression he's he's got you on the tip. You are playing along with the last card. He has to play. That's what you're doing well. I think it's a disservice to real victims of abuse to totally totally discredit him and I don't WanNa do that. I could be skeptical but hear him out and acknowledgeable. God awful thing did happen okay well. You've done it. Let's move on Jeez Louise. I'm telling you it's a big story and I think it's it's not going to end well similarly an update for Britney Spears and all of her drama. It was reported an expected for Britney to show up in court when they had this conservative ship hearing but for some maybe this is a good question for some reason she didn't show up her dad was there her new temporary. Temporary conservator was there as we spoken about Jamie Spears her father asked to be temporarily relieved of his conservative ship duties until January and Britney's lawyer representing her and her best interest was also there as well as her mother said the mom was there Britney's lawyers her dad add the new conservative the conservative lawyers and the judge ruled the conservative ship will remain even though Brittany does not want the conservative ship to remain and why do you think she didn't show up in court. I think that her lawyer probably told her that that's what's going to happen. We haven't presented enough information in order. We haven't done anything for the judge to change his initial ruling. There's nothing here you may as well go on with your life. We gave it a shot but it looks like this is GonNa stick. That's my guess. I have no idea but that's my guess but if it was so important to you. Wouldn't you want the judge to hear from you yourself I would maybe she he doesn't care that much. I don't know maybe that's why she needs a conservative ship because that seems like a logical feeling to have and maybe she isn't acting acting in logical ways hence the conservative she continues to be everything on social media both good and bad she continues to post bizarre things on social media she continues to do bizarre things in pub- not bizarre like she attended this award show called the daytime beauty the awards. I was going to ask you that very question. Why is she had something so? It wasn't even it was F- list. I'll really it's not Bana Yeah. It's a it's a nothing it's a fake award show. She went because I'm sure her boyfriend asked her to. Her boyfriend. Got Some made up bullshit award that they think may they just gave him something to get Britney to show up. Clearly that's disturbing. I can't stop with that. He clearly early is using her. If that's the case that just really is awful yeah. He should've gone by himself. It's cool of horse. It's cool of him to have gotten an Award Board Made Up Bullshit Lame Award from Epilepsy Award show. I mean to play devil's advocate. Maybe she said she wanted to go. Maybe she said congrats. I wanted accompany you the possibility you're right but not yet. I'm like come on this. Guy's in the getting awards business now come on if if he can't see through that what what should have been a good thing for Britney unfortunately ended up being negative because she first of all I mean she looked okay a on the red carpet. She didn't look awful. She looked like an ex soap star star to me or something you know like my obsessive mess could not stop obsessing over Britney's mouth. I gotTa send you the Frigate Photo again. I saw the photo and I already know what you're talking about. I looked at the photo. It's her teeth. Her teeth. Look Weird like it has a gap and I never I mean maybe she got her veneers. Remove no see here's the difference of doing the let's say the AB is just happened last night. The Emmy red carpet versus the Byu daytime beauty awards right okay okay. They're not exactly lit to be flattering and these awards shows the lighting is phenomenal lighting these celebrities correctly and and really blowing them out and whiting them out and making them shine pop so this I'm guessing what I saw looked like badge add shadowing and there's something going on with. Her mouth in that picture is of the crappy lighting. That's my guess but I did see what you're talking. Well thumb shitty lighting but there was something weird with her mouth. That's for sure but it was the bad lighting. However many should watch it now? Not Now who cares I bet she posts a lot on social media. She posted this one video that blew my mind in the one where she was talking about astrology. You have to watch because I'm not exaggerating. She seemed so lucid so clear so knowledgeable so normal I I almost did not recognize her. She seemed to have it all together in that video. Go look at that one astrology post and we'll blow your mind and I have this theory at and you've heard me out. What's the theory before that everything that she posts is in that character that there's this cartoonish cartoonish character that she becomes when there's a camera that she's holding in front of her face and I think you saw a moment where she wasn't that character that she was actually just talking about something that she's into? I think astrology is the kookiest thing in the world is completely stupid. It's basted nothing talk about Oughta Sham. Oh it's it's the dumbest thing in the history of the I agree but if you're into something sometimes you speak you know in an articulate way about it. She was telling US everything she knows about it. I'm sure and she was normal and that's probably the real Britney. That's that's what I've been saying all along law that it's just a character. I actually do want to see it because I want to actually see who he is. Let me send a real quick and it's a swipe through there. You're traction is to other horoscopes. I'M A secretary so I'm very keen on Aquarius and also Leo's because they're very outspoken very egotistical. They lead the pack but I'm curious. I'm very freedom. Why why am I not shock but she said to this a little bit shocked that makes sense to me if I got it so good to see even even use the word Kim? I'm like Oh my God good. That made me happy all right making a lot of headlines Smart because she's got an autobiography autobiography coming out. I think today tomorrow sometime this week Demi Moore made a lot of startling allegations and there there is a divide which I'm curious to hear if we are on the same page about this divide one of the allegations that she makes sharing her story. She claims that during her marriage to Ashton Kutcher he encouraged her to not be sober he literally told Demi Moore that he doesn't believe in sobriety and that everything in moderation so she had been sober for two decades accolades and she said she wanted to be the cool wife so she started drinking and then shit got out of hand. Is it a husband's place ace or role to I don't know I don't want to be responsible for somebody's sobriety but is it a husband's place to be a positive influence on your wife. Well you would thank but here's the deal and if you've been around drunks and I have people when you're a normally in your mind can't fathom. It's like being gay. I can't understand being gay. I can't understand the attraction of another man if you're nor me sometimes and you're ignorant. You can't can't understand the attraction of why you just can't have one drink why you can't control it so I have a little bit of problem with that because if demi indeed was in the program for she knows this I know this I've I only been to meetings because of friends and relationships so I understand that so that's a little bit of a problem with that okay because she knows this back your this was her husband. You know it wasn't a date. It was her husband she should understand that and should have identified it and should know that that and should be able to articulate it to him and it's fine if he believes that absolutely fine quote. He's a normal a normal person. That's how so you think that's all. I had a little bit of a problem with her calling him out for that. If that's his feeling that's his big deal. You're smart enough to ignore art but you're right. He should be more supportive while things got real bad for her to she started. I haven't read the book but I think she claims that she was drinking while pregnant and does she lost the baby drinking and smoking while pregnant like well. Okay I get it your husband husband. Push you to drink but then I guess she's an Alcoholic Perot Yeah but yeah I and then after the break up with Ashton things got so so bad that she nearly overdosed and says that she had out of body experience soya herself dying and luckily luckily did not die wild. I pray thank God I've just thinking about my kids and the future like is there alcoholism in your family no but when you look at parent and and you know all these things like I'm also old old school like alcoholism in my family but if there was. I don't think I would tell my kids that like well. I practically don't even drink that much any like barely the act only got. I had one drink on Saturday. I wasn't even planning that was my first drink since April first insane so you don't drink no we could go ahead and say you're not really a drink yeah. My kids are going to grow up having seen that but the children of Demi and Bruce Willis list grew up with the opposite they saw their mom being a mess and Bruce probably likes to drink and do what else to it. I don't know I mean maybe maybe it matters. Maybe a dozen. Nobody in my family drank wondering during my tire childhood I never saw alcohol Oh and then the earth huge drinker yeah all right and other wacky news this morning. I don't know why he gets me so heated. He gets me so heated that Chris Brown Brianna auto we were talking about this released her savage by Fendi fashion show on Amazon prime and you watched it. Why did you hate it? It wasn't about about the fashion if you're comparing it to a regular runway show where people walk down a runway. It's better okay but I don't know if my expectation tation was more music or performance. Was it not films well. was there bad lighting. What was it enjoy? There was an enjoyable. It wasn't for made made. Let's just put it that day for me bright. I what I'm trying to tell you. There's nothing that appealed to me about it. I didn't find it particularly artful. Oh I didn't find that there was an emphasis on the lingerie or the clothing or whatever she was pushing. I like the include seventy seventy how there were different girls with different body shapes and this and that and the other thing but outside of that thought I didn't walk away from that show thinking wow wow that's cool lingerie. All you're not a woman in the audience and as I've said it's not for me wasn't made for me. Does your girlfriend like it and she watches with with you turned it off halfway. What are we watching? She says this is very good. Well to promote the fashion the lingerie the show Oh really posted a photo of herself wearing lingerie and she's posing next to this lamp and Chris Brown whom we all know the awful things things that he did to her and actually I went back and I read the police report like everything he did to her was so next level disgusting awful Subhuman sub-human route. They were kids and she forgave him. I get that I get that but I need to remind everybody. Riana has has a boyfriend that should be respected. He left several comments three to be precise to stupid emojis and the third he said said I wanna be the lamp because I said she was posing in lingerie next to a limp I guarantee if Chris Brown were still dating Riana. Donna and Drake said that comment I wanted to be the Land Chris Brown will go try to pick a fight with drake. He'd get so upset what he not. You make a good point. Look I didn't the comment was and I do find the comet to be disrespectful. I mean you could say you look hot girl or whatever like. I said. We don't know what their relationship is now. Their friendship says now whatever they made music together they gotta be cool so it is a little disrespectful. I get saying tongue-in-cheek kind of things but Chris Brown isn't is it the most sensible guy in the world. I think we can all agree to that and asking him to use his head is kind of silly well speaking of silly really. I'm surprised he answered this Sean. Then Ted is a lot of people a lot of people not even some. I mean let me I guess I mean if I had to put a number on it. I would say maybe thirty percent of people would claim this is totally a made up number by the way thirty percent think that Shawn Mendez. There's maybe even higher showed Mendez and Camillo obey. IOS relationship is a publicity stunt. Would you think that's an accurate assessment thirty percent. I don't know what the percentage percentages. I don't a lot but let's just say a lot of people I agree with you that it is a talking point thirty percent because that's a lot less than thirty percents sense not a lot in my mind so a lot of people he got confronted by a paper Rod so with a camera a video camera and was asked about about that and normally like you know when you're ambushed by videographers I would say I do not talk or talk but then when you get asked a question question like that like why response to a question like that he literally said we're definitely not a publicity stunt. Okay okay well that that says to me. He cares enough to even say that so that's nice yeah so it's real it's real maybe like some aspects of in their relations. Percent Real maybes aspects of their their court. Their relationship ship is for a ted shade but it's still real. I've just never seen a prettier person in my life. That's not gay that's all. He is very that Afrin. I don't Find Zach Ephron that pretty I mean he's kind of pushed it up. As the years have gone on. I definitely wouldn't call him. Butch either. Sean is pretty to me. You and I have zero Gaidar to me. He doesn't have a a feminine flow about him. Back never did Shawn Mendez and I know these words are. I don't even know what these words are. I'm just coming up with them as they come to their sean has this feeling feeling of femininity. When I look at it I gave by? Maybe it is a gave. I don't know like I said I have no Gaidar. I don't know if you could truly have a gay vibe unless sure gay on the receiving end. You know what I mean like. I'm trying to assess it like a dude. Look at another dude if thinking that guy's got some chick qualities. That's what I'm thinking Feminine Energy Yeah Yeah. Let's go with that. I liked that Feminine Energy Feminine Energy. He has that like like a and like Ryan seacrest. Maybe Zach doesn't have that yeah. He likes to do sports show. I don't think Shawn Mendez doesn't sports not that that's not that sports is just a male thing right anyway so let's move on sixty seconds. That's exactly how long this commercial last.

It seems like things are heating up with Mike Mike Johnson of the Bachelorette and Demi Levato however. I think this guy is fucking up that Tyler Cameron the one that's dating gee-gee Hadeed Adid smartly I would say has not once spoken out about g adid publicly this Guy Mike Mike Johnson has twice now within the span of a week spoken out about Demi Levato I he was interviewed by entertainment tonight and and he said the following Demi Lovato and I went on a date the woman is quite astounding and amazing and that's all I'll say on that well then he went on a podcast with the Bachelor Rhett alums Rachel Lindsay and Ali Fedotowsky Manno and he continued to talk about Demi Levato. Oh He's said quote. I think she's amazing. She's incredibly humble when Demi and I are together it's laughter and we talk about real shit like she's a down to Earth Earth woman and I respected so much. She's just a really humble really cool really fun down to Earth Person My status of the relationship with Demi fire that we are two people exploring each other. That's just cardinal thin rule when you're dating somebody a lot more famous than and you don't talk about them in the media. I I agree with you. I do agree with you. You're just setting yourself up for failure and it looks thirsty and just you're not you're I get it. He's being interviewed and he's being asked the stuff and people want to ask him stuff but he can go in and said look. Here's some ground enrolls. I am not willing to talk about the new relationship. I have a few WANNA ask me. I would politely decline but to me sounding like he's giving too many. The answers now much too much information they don't do that. I'm with you know that new bachelor was officially announced pilot P and a lot of people pull well you know once you've done the show and you watch the Bachelor in paradise more than I didn't even watch it but like Bachelor in paradise are for all all of the exactly right cast-offs yes if you've been the bachelor of you've been the Bachelorette you'll not be on bachelor in Paradise Right Right Okay Doc so Rachel. Lindsay herself is a former Bachelorette and she was talking straight up smack to ABC and the producers of the show for not casting a man of color. Every single bachelor for nineteen seasons has been a white man. Isn't that lame. I think that's lame. I'm just going to say here's how the show works. Whoever has the most it pop star power sexiness whatever her out of the lot of them usually anointed to the next level meeting if these guys were on the Bachelorette and there's twenty five of them whoever gets the heartbroken the most or has the most it factor or is the biggest fan favourite that person moves on? It's not really an I. I guess I'm kind of taking the upper. ABC here. It's Kinda not really up to them. The fans sorta always point. ABC in the direction of where they want want to go was it Mike Johnson getting more heat and love than pilot repeat. Mike Johnson's getting heat because he's going out with Demi Levato he was. It's really not a star on the show. I don't know I haven't watched as a fan. I'm just giving you the heads up pilot. Pete kind is one of those guys that Sorta has has everything going for him. He's pretty vanilla though so I don't know how much fun he'll be to watch but then again sometimes vanilla guys are the best like your favorite Sean Lowe Sean. I thought was a piece of meat with is I thought he was going to be boring. He was just going to be a good looking in guy by the end of it. I loved him because he was a pretty normal guy but he had a heart of gold and he was in it for the right reasons and ultimately that's the reason I think most women watch the bachelor and even me at times. I just like seeing twenty five psychopaths compete. That's awesome for me but at the end when you do get a nice feeling about the person or the couple it's great and I have that feeling about Sean Low. I thought he was excellent on the show and when he picked his wife none of us saw well it coming it came down to three girls and we were like well. It's not going to be her and we're fighting over the other two and it turned out. It was the third girl none of us saw it. I mean. ABC really did a great job of hiding their relationship from us so we kinda thought they were just friends so who knows man. I don't know he could be good but to defend. ABC A little bit. I don't know if it's their job to make the world all right while they're making agenda. They're making the world all white. They're bachelor world. Well like I said I still think that that's from the fans and if the fans who gives a fuck with a like it's been nineteen nineteen cycles because that's why that vehicle is still moving because they do listen to the fans and they do listen to Bachelor nation and they do try to write all of the wrong bad slurred nation also wants a black bachelor. I think now do they not want a black bachelor the media and you and all of the people that don't watch watch and people that are into that idea sure maybe they do the people watching the show. The people that are enjoying these people ultimately Komo decide is my point. You have an agenda you WANNA black bachelor. I don't care about a black bachelor bachelor. I couldn't care less. I want somebody that's interesting. According to watch I care are I don't watch but they're nine Orleans anyone in the world. Give a shit what you think. You're not even a viewer who cares what you think as my point. You're yelling at the people that watch the show who are saying. We want this person that we want that person. That's all you have to care about out. When you're putting a show out the people that watch his agenda The people watch the show really wanted this boring pilot peak guide? It'd be the bachelor more than Mike Johnson and if you're asking me more than my Johnson my answer to you as one hundred percent more than Mike Johnson my Johnson had no zip not the majority of the Bachelor Nation Mation alums the people that have been on the show I would say I thought nine people speaking out against that casting and maybe one in favor of what are you supposed to say. That's a great choice. I love it congrats. He's GonNa be a great bachelorettes looking but now I almost everybody I saw was like that's awful. That sucks yes. You're on the Internet and you don't even watch. It doesn't matter what you think is my point. I I'm right about this. It does not matter what you think or what the media thinks. It's about what the fans want if the fans all got together and said that there was someone special on the show that happened to be a person of color that would be the bachelor they WanNa make good TV. They WanNa make the show that people WanNa watch you gotta give. ABC Some credit for that I also think it's important to have a represent America a hey. You know what they had. One Latino they still there Latino Bachelor was still why not everything has to be about political agenda or or social inequalities. Sometimes it could be just about not a television show that you liked to watch and you're giving the fans what they want okay. It's the fucking Bachelor for crying out loud Bachelet. I'm just GonNa say that the Bachelor fans are racist. You'll sound dumb. Usual speaking of sounding dumb Wendy Williams has been saying and a Lotta Dumb Shit lately what's going on with her. I know didn't I did. I tell tell you I think did I tell you I have a friend who hung out with her recently. No No oh so I made this whole video and people were upset at me but I've got information that let's just say my friend who hung out with Wendy in the evening out and about already know this is going. Let's just say that they don't believe that Wendy's sober and if you also also look at whom she's been hanging out with she's been going to bars and clubs a lot herself. It's not a rocket scientist. You don't have to be you want to see that. She's probably not sober right now and she's been talking a lot of crazy. Talk like not even smack. Her job is smack talk but she got into this beef with Christie Brinkley who is like wholesome vanilla lovely Christie Brinkley claiming that Christie Brinkley was lying about her wrist injury. She got her on dancing with the stars stars and had to get surgery for it and then wouldn't even apologize Wendy Williams lake the really think Christie Brinkley lied i-i'd about getting surgery com on and then she also was talking smack about Iggy Azalea but what's the big deal she sub stupid things you say stupid that you said ten stupid things in the past five minutes. What's the big deal who cares? It's kind of her job. It's kind of your job like I don't. I don't know why this is such a big yeah well for me. I'm just saying all of her behavior. Recently just reinforces my belief that she's off the wagon. Okay all right. That's the thing for me and and I think that she should focus on her sobriety all right in other wacky news this one. I don't really care about but I'll just mention it. Briefly early that pedophile Takashi has been singing like a canary. He began his testimony against his former gang members and was dragon dragon everybody into it too from Cardi B. Two trippy red and others. I hope that that Guy's son is already ready. The witness protection program you you would think right. I have no idea guy also in some wacky news. This thing became a meam and went super viral but it made me sad more than anything. Did you see that kicking Palmer viral main thing that happens. I don't even know Kiki Palmer is she is the new co host of Oh no she may spinoff show. GMA three they're calling it. She was doing this interview with Vanity Fair and they made a joke question saying who was a better vice president your character or Dick Cheney and then she looked at it and she's like Lake Mary. The weirdest thing is clearly. They said who he was is not listening or she was nervous or whatever because she was doing a lie detector thing right and she's like. I'm sorry to this man. I hope I don't come across as ignorant whatever the hell. She said she had no idea who Dick Cheney amy was Oman and this thing went viral and it just made me sad for her. 'cause you know I get it. She was what sixteen seventeen in when Dick Cheney was vice president but at sixteen or seventeen in the school but I went to there was the expectation that I knew who the vice president was now. Oh I think kids today are a lot different than kids. Were a couple of generations ago Peres. They're they're not as tuned into the things they should be tuned into their. They're on instagram all day if you ask them who the president of Instagram was they can tell you that has the most followers they could tell you that but they can't tell you who the vice president is. No they're watching and following. The car. Dash INS too much. We've got them to play. At least the XERES are coming up a little differently. They couldn't care less about the Kardashians but this last one the millennials. That's a suspect group well. Let's end things how we began talking to you about the Kardashians I mentioned how Kim and Connie about this fourteen fourteen million dollar property in Wyoming they've already pissed off the neighbors and got in trouble with authorities because they were writing and ATV leave vehicle Qiming Connie and they were chasing antelope which apparently is illegal. You're not supposed to chase the wildlife and somebody the one of the organization part whatever yeah they went to their house after seeing the video that Kim posted on her instagram story to say this is against the law. Please don't do this again and then finally you tell me if this I think that this was uncalled for and rude to be honest. Kendall Jenner was a fake blonde for a week. She's appropriating blondes. Yes it looks so real I thought she she had dyed her hair but I think it was just a really good wig and somebody asked Khloe Kardashian about Kendall being blonde and she said Khloe said she so oh perfect I mean now she looks exactly like me and then Kendall saw that comment and responded you wish bitch they get it. That was a joke. It's a joke I know that it's a joke but that could also be rigorous so bored with your time trying to dissect these silly words no but chloe is the most insecure of all of them struggled with her weight got a nose job recently. She's poking fun at herself. Self Peres she said Look you looked like me now. It's a joke she was joking with her sister gets answered back and said Yeah Bitch playing along. I Dunno I I would not find that funny. I'm a sensitive person you are. Let's take some calls and I love the show lovers dental week now always listen at the beginning and for as you are my Go-to for all things news booker you are a straight Hottie You could stop laughing note. Marie and I'm quoting Cincinnati so I'm calling you about Stephanie. Patch is a cat but just her podcast. I'm well if you've listened to it fee four. There's it's quite a few episodes that are about you. She talks about how your first thought bother and episode that you were on great job by the way okay. My main concern is that she thinks she's British. Louver talk on that show even on the ills. He sometimes look enter. The British sent that doesn't go natural. I don't really get it but I wanted to hear your thoughts on that and your thoughts on that is that true yes but she lives there and she has lived there for over a decade now so it's not like she's trying to British is just that she spent so much time there. You know it happens to everybody like us us if you're America you spend ten twenty years in the UK you kind of sound like that that she's talking about. It's not like she's trying to be pretentious or snobby snobby or she is those things. He's not trying you know she is that if I go back to West Virginia I'm there for a week there will be parts of my dialect that will change your ear. Start Tearing things the way that you grew up hearing them and I think it's just natural that you pick up things. I think that's completely natural yeah. She moved move there to film a reality show. She's been a real. She was doing reality. TV in the UK after the hills got canceled for a decade she did this show called made in Chelsea Chelsea which is like the hills UK. Basically this is actually from Orlando and I was just listening to an episode from a few weeks ago we were talking about Demi Lovato and her celebrity status and she kind of reminds me of Jessica Simpson of the world of the late nineties you know back then we had Brittany and we had the fina and now we have Selena and yes Amelia and then he is probably going to be better off doing passing or starting some sort of wine opposed the thing with him great answer the kind of money now but not thinking guys love the so she made so much money from her damn shoes Jessica never really had the chops demi has the Demi really is a really good singer. You can't take that away from her shoes really talent yeah but in the early two two thousand Jessica Simpson was huge. Oh no question I'm not debating that she was a massive star in the television. Show on top of that thing thing was huge but her point is that Jessica maybe didn't have the chops but she segued into a fashion kind of brand and has made made millions from it. Maybe Demi should do the same thing where I'm thinking. Demi probably will stick with music because she's actually really talented when it comes to music but I get our point is in North Carolina. I am calling to comment on the Aaron Carter stuff I think I think this visit the kid. I'm thinking because I feel like he's just emotionally stunted given everything he's gone through his life with you know a mom who's an alcoholic lake and has all kinds of issues his died.

friends all the sugar and without all the calories it's just what you need to get your energy up they taste fantastic we had a whole shipment sent to the office no sometimes you just have those sluggish days last night we had the podcast up front of course I had a few drinks a little hungover needs some more energy parcel who put it together so so cool it looked like a barstool bar in the city which is so cool if they actually had that and it was a lot of fun at that Black Green can you're not you don't think of all these different kinds of flavors but that's why Monster Energy Ultra is what you should be drinking now when you need that is purple can read blue they all are great we're we're we're going away we're trying all of them right now we're both stuck on the purple one but you always think about this on radio you felt like this week's flying by I think this week cannot remove and slower I think that this week is flying by because I've been I've just been so happy on the screen right now as which was fun joy who doesn't like boobs everyone was like and people were just throwing their bras also there was a part where he just for ten minutes scream titties the entire like there was a ten minute intermission where I guess he was waiting for not even intermission 'cause he could've sang got Fram Monster Energy got my violet can you know how it tastes like a purple Pixie stick is like this beautiful grape flavor candy without how how I wanted to do nothing this weekend me too I really just wanted to nothing like I said we we had our podcast upfront last night which was amazing shadow to all the people nothing since Atlantic city so maybe this weekend you'll go out again and then next week maybe because you're not sitting around doing I'm already thinking about had a great weekend yeah and I think that I'm just getting by by about my weekly just because I've been doing nothing that it moves that could be it as well because you've been doing crazy so as up rocky being sex addict doesn't shock me no whatsoever no it's just it's tough 'cause it's one it's one of those brock as APP raw sex addict sex addict because you know it's not shocking he did the entire show with two arms filled with bras and little energy boost like Ria said zero sugar and low calorie it's fantastic yup so of you are struggling right now go to the store lots he said that his first orgy was when he was thirteen years old I don't even think guys know how to use their Dick at thirteen years was ones that everbody I think kind of laughs at 'cause it's like addiction is very real and we talk and that that is is true but when people are like Oh time it's the kind of addiction where you can flip and be like well hey at least people are having sex with you like a sap rocky has a lot of sex a lot I'm him that like I think would make funny memes I know and you know with a sap rocky it's like he gets away it was thinking like if my first thought when he said that I was like oh boy that should be illegal and that was like no that that is legal tactically that was my pass this topic pretty quickly but yet he said he didn't even get sperm and his balls at that point in time yeah there's some pretty interesting quotes with a lot of stuff because he's so pretty that it is true he is pretty yeah and people are like pretty when he was thirty okay now actually you know what Jason Brockie about all the sex that you're having yeah I but it seems like he he's cool with it yeah you know it's tough and that's very sad that's very hard to see because like you like you said like is a very real thing it's addiction couples after battle through that and get to the other side they got it I talk about this anymore way pretty anyway you I'm telling you pose it sounds fucking it does anyway I don't know I don't know you just can't you just can't go without it clearly you just can't I wonder I I would really love to get a number from him he's a sack stab sex right I mean and sex addiction is a real thing like people do get addicted to sex but at the same time Mike how often he has sex during the week you know what I mean is it multiple times a day is that once a day every day of the week did not every day of the week I'm going to him to elaborate on the sex addiction for me or maybe not maybe it's better if we brand just like exploded taking how much sexier having dea kidding I'm kidding I'm kidding I'm a boy I really was about a year that I am so kidding no I do not WanNa hear that about you I'm so kidding I ace we want to think about rocky now opening hot as fuck onstage yes I will say I have to say it but yeah so sorry Alexa App Rocky but I'm glad I saw him in concert finally I've waited years and it was and he was great he actually was great he was like I wish my correctly morning one in the evening breakfast lunch meal you sex like meals why did you say all the details I mean well if you're thinking about the logistics of sex it's probably spaces it out yeah he probably yeah and the crowd which see I'm much more of a rocky fan than I am a Travis Scott Fan and the night four I saw Travis Scott but the crowd obviously Immigra all the people adults kids in my head I'm like isn't that illegal for 'cause is he having an orgy with a bunch of and the arrest and like people fainting that and it's like mayhem also yet but I mean travis was really good this time around to and we've we've seen it before and he wasn't thirteen year old I don't know I don't you really sit down and think about the logistics it makes you really want to get up and think about diligence yeah right it makes me WanNa move when you said like multiple times a day my eyes like blow because I was like probably is multiple times a day and he's probably tired now I don't know Mike Okay excitement wise people were excited for Travis I feel like Travis also as the reputation of the crazy hype shows I'm sure I'm great when we saw him he was way better this time but we also saw him it was like right after some shit was going down with Kylie and I feel like he was do they know how to use your ticket thirteen years I took everyone please good for him and I was so proud of him nice and you know while people must have been stokes so what happened was because you know that Travis notoriously late it makes you think of like all the stuff that's been going Janet Kramer and her husband like they have battled draw this and so it's very real very real thing go watch meek mill travis after because Travis is probably not going to be on and then like I saw the wrong guys and I was like Travis Yeah and I meet Millon Travis Scott were performing at the same time and I said guys I was saying my friends and my travis got his always late so like we could the crazier for Travis Scott than they do a sap rocky it which you know hurts me a little bit because I'm just more of an Brockie fan but the crowds were definitely different he went on and he did a great show that's great and kind of weird considering all the Kylie news he was doing okay besides breaking his leg onstage yes nine in a his right now and not in the right place no and this and this time he he showed up on time yes reform at nine he performed exactly at nine as eating while he's eating of things probably get real weird real weird yeah for sure for sure well you know what like I said sorry about all the because you see people have sex addictions and it breaks up relationships it's really tough on their loved ones and whatnot Oh shit they're normal him he's a sap rocky having threesomes every night he's having orgies all the time yeah this is realized that he yeah so when you're going home I should go with you yeah but it was it was it was tough because I not like I it hasn't relations yes unless Kendall Jenner just haven't worked out because he couldn't deal with the lifestyle he's at three sums or just normal him what's but then when you hear a sap rocky talking about it I'm like yeah you're a rapper who has a lot of sex yeah like he just loves sex and he's he's not in a committed relationship so I feel fine but like in the moment the room was hot I was just tired I was like I I wish I had the energy to keep going I I normally would have right but I it was Serb rocky doesn't I'm just saying like everything every time you hear about Travis Scott Show people are talking about the mosh pits and the and the cree correct the niece situation situation you still could but yeah it's been for you a long week I was thinking I should like spoke friend is very responsible what Chile and the soup family I think I think the I think you do maybe depending on the consistency yeah it depends on how Banaras Turkey chili that's kind of soup ish that I keep getting like blasphemy or I was watching thankfully after like a week my love dia has kind of stopped twitching it got to the point where I was like getting a little nervous get eat soup for lunch and dinner every day and be fine I agree with that too just different kinds of soup any kind of soup may throw them Chilean there maybe I don't know if people is right and which is not like a sad thing 'cause I basically eat soup everyday anyway butternut squash soup right now I love soup like I truly I'm you only took one day off of drinking in the last Oh my God this Fran you put it like that really does because he's talking about being thirteen and having orgies and now we're finding that we don't want to think about you sat brockett thirteen years old off I like totally make this even more you know dealing with I'm having these weird I feel like every episode I'm talking about these weird elements red wine and like I got a little and hurt like burn burned and then I was like I

morning we have a great interview with Mike Johnson from this season of the Bachelorette and Bachelor in paradise obviously you guys know him if you listen the little tiny little round poces those are good though yeah those are good yeah all right enough about suit another about soup because I'm sure you guys are all going to be ordering super friends anniversary from when he posted a few weeks ago and he tagged everybody in the caption but wrote Hashtag Jennifer Aniston Hashtag Matthew you just get into it starting off talking about Jennifer Aniston's instagram so this lady Johnson somebody's Instagram so deeply as I have been Jennifer Aniston's like just to see what her next move is she might become the first the most followed person on instagram so around us on instagram well it's of course of course and so like she's got a great instagram her bio is my friends call me Jen Her first post was aw her commenting on other on other photos so like she originally commented on Matt Leblanc's photo of like Jan Jan commented a rare comment and I love you jen also common John Recent polls from he's weatherspoon and then they literally posted a screen shot of her and I mean once again just shout out to Julie from comments by slept because boy do they jump on this fast before she was even verified they yeah no of card to his favorite lunch place pray Thomas Yeah Wallet is what he likes it is what he likes I mean we is confirmed for cat women and Disney plus we talk all about the things coming to Disney plus at the Mike Interviews and I just want to say before we get into the topics I know we the of the cast of friends looks like a fairly recent photo because they're all at their current or their current age all their personal accounts yeah yeah I don't think they let everyone follow their personal hands big deal But I think that we need to make a strong presence I don't know how they found it so fast but Jennifer Aniston then commented on the comments by Salah posts saying wow you girls fast go to just an amazing compliment I b like to hear When their friends stories get rebel yeah yeah he's like all my friends story I like that too so send them to my instagram at Maria Chef Osea Ufo I will read them and two hundred and five thousand comments and counting so obviously the comments by SLUPSK rose also posted everybody just commenting on the post and it's truly like every ro Oh eight Oh with a little bacon God i Love Baked Potato Soup Holy Shit I've been eating their slaughter what are we gonna do like get him something he wasn't GonNa use I think you guys would like to soup at least visit soup is soup you gotta really fuck up soup it would be hard to we living on such a high if I if I was those two girls today like not only did Jennifer Ashton joint and scream that's great content wise for them like she also account it was followed by just deal and Demi Moore and she had six hundred thousand four hundred dollars I don't know how how did they find awesome beating Jennifer Aniston joined instagram and I still can't follow her which is ridiculous every celebrity being so excited that she's on instagram one girl wrote why can't I follow her though and Jen replied to her saying sorry I think I broke it and she did she just broke in St it's just like Oh why said we need to make a presence yeah she can we can catch your eyes somehow we probably should have commented on on the instagram through Jennifer Aniston on instagram because I think she's nude which is going to be snooping around she has she's harder is somehow yeah I mean I think we might be too late at this and this was like one Jennifer Aniston had no fault line no followers and she wasn't verified so then but then she also commented Courtney Cox Instagram of her and Matt the person on Instagram if your cards right her picture has four million likes my God I mean because everybody in the world wants to follow that was this has not stopped but now I think I'm chewing on my cheek in my sleep like my whole right cheek is swollen and Woah I think you're just shutting off friends because you are recently like in the last few weeks I was bored and scrolling netflixing came across let me she did because so many people were trying to follow her that is what could be potentially very funny about this is she is nude instagram so she's just like replying a bunch of regular people or just ask your question point like if it was like really early at six am owning we we may as I mean full like I said four million likes on the picture yeah I just don't like it because you're snobs because I love Seinfeld and I actually think Seinfeld is funnier than friends but I also do love friends they don't have instagram and then she commented you don't have to Hash tag me anymore I didn't need to find out how they do it I love girls ATV before yeah but it's still just saying oh I'm going to watch like any show I'm just going to pop into one really sounded context of to David Schwimmer's sister married to knowledged them not like acknowledging her that is great stuff by them per yeah they got all the celebrities comedy and they get everybody we still can there's time there's time instagram maybe no maybe toss the comment on there from six in the office just to like get in the mix yeah get in the mix somehow Komo actually posted on her story and she was like Julie we crush this yeah I saw because articles were writing about them being comments by slaves not to Brag we as you want like brainstorming then you've watched friends know friends why Seinfeld you see that I have two against each other and I get that other people Adams told we're talking we're talking Franz like it's like friends like friends if you don't like friends L. Like I've seen it in order what did you say that is not true there are huge moments that you would not understand like you need right actor background Oranje suffering I like non corny stuff so I like friends Seinfeld is not corny in the slightest bit like not even a little bit which I like but it's a little mixture of both don't think joey beyond he's funny he's he's from Newton I do think he's funny I mean if you don't think joe is Joe has laugh out loud lines right I think he's a funny guy and realize Oh my God sometimes Noah just like it's his birthday so my worry we aren't going to be nice but he has and the reason I get it I don't think I hate it but it's I can't yeah yeah I mean look it just through Perry doesn't have that late in the show Larry the whole time more seasons where they're not married is in the middle that's tough while you need to start somewhere so you understand what's going on in the show do you know and I know all the characters like I've seen like reruns on everybody's differently I like friends more than Seinfeld I like I like Seinfeld Blake if if you put if I'm going to bed and I had friends and Seinfeld you like I'd put it on after ten minutes I clicked at random not random one or later because if it was a I my only two options I'm watching friends allowed bounce back and forth which idea anyway I do see like I love Seinfeld but I like the laugh tracks just make me cringe for the most part I think that there are some being a lot of people that don't like maybe more than people that do oh shut up Noah now now you're just wrong I mean Like snob like art snob like we were feeling we were all are people we this'll be like an art shaming I don't think I laugh every time there's a laugh track I kind of ignore the laugh track but they have to act around that like when there's a laugh there's a big pause in the acting because you have to let that play and then the Kardashians art shaming yeah no I I just I'm confused still I'm not when people say they hate friends saying like all the will they won't they there wasn't there wasn't any will with God see you don't even know I just like the humor of it really what dad it's just that's just a wrong statement because it'd be as popular as it is if people more people hated it then like look you and I also Mr Energy Ultra Monster Energy Ultra is the healthier choice for the energy drink on the go that's how we get our Friday energy to record these podcasts yeah yeah you do that show it would be where you're supposed to laugh about point I don't think like I don't think I'm totally controlled by the laugh track always also counts yes noah I'll just hates friendship and love and laughter well yeah so I gotta appreciate for what they are you can't pick the other friends is a little corny and that's why the good it yeah but it's I like is kind of a weird thing a lot of these shows they in front of live no no audience and then there was real laughter what's not all manufacturers sure okay but also maybe friends doesn't either you know this is a stupid argument if you want to find other reasons to go for it but the laugh track and then also the laugh track being inside like in general that's why I like Kurban Zaza I like that more than Seinfeld anyway when there's a laugh track I just feel so it's so weird to me I mean that's like every like trying to tell you it's like it's like Big Bang theory which I think is a terrible show Big Bang theory I mean those clips take out the laugh track it's the most uncomfortable thing you'll ever see aligned if I'm just saying that I like kind of kills know ah listen I love Seinfeld though and it has the last year on so much the gist of everything like what's his name wow that's really really sounds like his stor like you need to know which is why I'm ignoring your point about friends in the laugh track because you love Seinfeld right so he thought reason that it's not the laughter talk shows we were Selena love that you're kind of the outcast like Greece anatomy like other shows that you get it like a million shows true no not really I just don't watch a million shows not that I don't like them I just don't watch them all right we'll just on from you because what pelting you love Seinfeld that doesn't add up give different reasons give I told you I just don't like the contact he doesn't like the heat he's just trying to save the planet I get it but oh no I mean Leo could have a fire instagram fire instagram his his account like this restart go from the beginning and just refresh your brain actually not refresh it delete everything on your brain yeah start new Leos instagram account is more like a foundations account you know spreading awareness which I guess that's a great thing for Leo to do on watching back from the beginning again which I've done before yeah and then he started watching every episode and he was into it and he was genuinely laughing so sometimes you just gotTa take it from the back you dated John Mayer Oh true they really very serious I think I forgot that too I just totally forget that if you see like if you scroll to the bottom right away carrie Washington Oprah timberlake. Leonardo DiCaprio United Capture such a snooze fast on instagram clean slate clean slate probably not though probably not let's give him like the funniest episodes to watch and tell me which ones to watch why if you tell me which I will give you a list of the funniest episodes to watch like you have to watch at least two of them okay there like twenty minutes I'll give you two of those in cool I mean obviously like literally every single person she fall Sarah Foster and Erin foster cummings their friends every basically every person she followed is enersen following you on instagram unprovoked there's just awesome she followed comments by slaves oh I know that's so cool do you think it is to be one of the ninety eight people actually followed right who's going to be the hundredth like if you're celebrity and you just woke up to Jennifer I mean he commented on her instagram she followed him if anybody can be friends with their XS Jennifer Aniston and they they have maintained a friendship like I feel like he accepted have been in social settings to I kinda love that the first people really always forget the maybe I mean they're really good ones but I love that she falls Selena Gomez because Lena go mrs one of the top thaw or is still the top yeah she followed Michelle Obama you can see like the first few people she started following do you think it goes in order I think when you first start out at go I I'm not really sure I I don't know but if I had to guess I'm an followed by route but I don't think I've ever felt him but I do periodically go and like when I see his name on things I'll look and scroll through what he's doing and I know it sounds bad but truthfully I mean it's it's it's tough because you go through his instagram's you're just like oh boy we are I don't like them they knew or an uncle like the show fair okay I'm GonNa have to think about after I can't give it to you on the spot right now I mean there's so many there's so many episode any pop fell yeah it is I mean he's yeah straps I'm not GonNa lie I don't even I don't even follow Leo Mixing Their Strategy You follow the world I followed him celebrity and there's a few that are not but a majority of them a majority so are what's the deal with her in just in throw seems like they're friends how much we're trashing the planet yet correct so thanks Leo for spreading awareness yeah she followed like net flicks a couple of those accounts awesome show to Jennifer Aniston Anniston yeah but he also she's GonNa get on instagram no shot but I do think I was gonna say like how this apple TV obviously she has her new show coming out some charities because that's you know Saint Jude maybe no maybe very loyal to her brand but there's not I'm trying to pick up to there are some that just really like cackle so all right we'll we'll get you those because you're gonNA have to re- partnerships right does she follow a Vino Hell yes thank God that gosh she started she's the reason I started using a beano products sometimes just because I'm like Oh for Aniston is using it is the Vino moisturizer daily moisturizer SPF thirty every de SPF. That's the best moisturizer I will say the best moisturizer I've ever used anything that's lower than SPF thirty it was like Oh shit I guess I'll buy the SPF thirty want well she was saying she can't recommend you Always scares me too I feel like click I always see those before and after photos of people and their faces and I'm like Oh God I just WanNa make sure I got my SPF yeah since the beginning of summer of all the time that they've been in the same places together or at the airport or taking pictures with fans at the same time she wrote where's my baby and then Noah Cincinnati Oh posts on his story a Selfie with I'm right here holding the other yeah planet is going to ship it's so sad but I think that's what Leo's trying to do here is not most pictures of myself but I'm going to remind you all I'll say you know not to toot our own horns here but a few weeks ago we were talking about this on radio and then Offi Cup yes so this confirms that no Centenario had a shaved head in the picture so instead of people focusing on the fact that he was responding to oyster is everybody water that's pf who has great skin like Liz has great skit and Liz always swears by like always wearing SPF and moisture alexis run story everyone was like Oh my God knows Cincinnati shaved his head guys oh my God he's dating Alexis Ren that's where we need to focus on to me while yes and we feel almost like somebody from e was listening into our checks in the office radio show and then decided to write an article on it because it was very weird timing how we talked about go by horse but I'm saying like I'm like Oh my dermatologist says that I should be wearing thirty or above like I'll I'll wear thirty and above oh well that's good home and articles and there is there's really been like there was one youtube video that really just like was putting all the puzzle pieces together and then to its Tuesday night really sealed the deal Alexis posts on her story a table with two coffee cups but nope other person apple a day later he news poser article about them so it ended up not even going in the podcast because the segment was was outdated but we have been on this for they're dating I actually feel like they're a good fit for each other Alexis Ren and no centenario they make sense if you read their social media listen we don't know them we don't know much about them not like smell the Vino moist us it's not like an ad for back I use the fifteen one and then I went to last time I went to the dermatologist and she was like I can't it's like they're both hottest fuck they're also both cheesiest faulk if you re nose to nose twitter and you read Alexis rents twitter she's just the girl version of Noah centenary vice versa actor I mean no something as an actor but Alexis Ren we we don't see much of her besides her pictures and what she tweets out she used to make some youtube videos not really much to see Alexis run is the perfect amount of hotness for no sentimental yeah like I think they make sense together totally and like you always joke I feel like Samedan twitter for sure they're both corneas hell but they're also like Super Super Hot beautiful people it doesn't shock me all right everyone the news is confirmed Alexis Rhino Center now have to be dating okay so we've been speculating about this for a while uh-huh exactly everyone is always like moisturised moisture is then I try moisturizers that don't work for me but if it does sound like that was an ad once again it's not bitter looks like we can't forget that I'm really looking at this picture the Salvi that Noah posted he has great nail beds. You've I don't WanNa say normal guy because I mean it's still know us today but I like it and clearly I feel they really are trying to build this like j Alvarez Situ grandma like exactly and I feel like that's who everybody's used to seeing Alexis run with so this is in your doctor's not everyone does that now I probably would only stick to fifteen mainly because it's it's getting cold and I'm not gonNa be out and so I don't need that sharp skin damage is relationship because they don't like they don't talk about each other they don't post each other I'll whichever you don't follow each other just bizarre but can you imagine girls like Alexis Ren Dez dated some very hot guys know Centenario is very hot but he's not like the instagram shirtless look at his hands fingernails you rarely see men with fingernails like that and that's a pet peeve of mine for guys when their when their fingers we never got a manicure and I wanNA say like a few months back I was just riot like just get a manicure see what you think and I mean he loves got it yeah and then all of a sudden article huge part of the conversation was how is nobody talking about like nobody has written any articles where are the articles and then their personalities that well but from what I see on social media I think that they're a good pair some so say Alexis Ren is too hot for no sense nail I sit and talk to each other no I'm not saying just from a hotness standing from a tweet sampler me straight corning factor like we cannot forget what no sentinels like Pucci something like that cupcakes probably like Justin Bieber toxin that Baby Voice Oh oh baby air which is what everybody's freaking out about but I mean I think he looks Kinda cute you know what he tweeted one time let I don't know a lot but what I do know is my baby sales are dirty dirty fingernails I take it a disease like I took my I took my boyfriend to get like he's got pedicures that he was just like my hands look amazing again full self love all men should be taking care of their hands pedicure yeah I don't want anybody knowing they don't want people knowing but I do should they do want people because they do shit like that and do you ever just think to yourself what their conversations are like yeah I mean look how nice Noah's nails in this I'm shocked anyway I'm not shocked because it's no Centenario and yeah that's true and he did buzz Ed baby picture of Alexis couples like that always kind of weird me out I don't know why I would never have my like boyfriends baby sends me better music than your baby boo when did he tweet that September seventeenth last month yet wow Alexis Ren Senate him fire music fire music cute little pigtails yeah that's definitely how no-one Alexis talk except he's like who looks like they're clearly the couple it says the key and they're just going back and forth saying that all day long and you know could for them maybe one day they'll follow each other that's how I think like all hot couples and you know what he strikes me as the type to only call her baby being never calls her this or lax or anything it's he might have a really bad like pet sure friend was when he was little right that's creepy I don't yeah I like to me I may be yeah I don't I don't really like it either unless it's like a super yeah it was gossip girl something but they're also the kind of couple who has their girlfriend or boyfriend like baby picture as their full background yeah they do have leagues ought no baby you're so oh my God my God you are as fixed in my heart like those are the things that no sense I don't WanNa get into it but they're like we talked about this the first time we talked about Alexis and no on radio and and go washes if you google like Alexis Ren ah her personality nose-to-nose he's an actor so we see him in movies star and she was on but so we don't know them that three you this and the youtube video they're like there's a picture of Alexis right as a baby that you can see she's holding in her hand and then there was a screen shot of Noah like somebody took a story when Noah was showing off a song he was playing but you could see the his lock screen in the background and it was Alexis around is your background yeah when you pose the question like that it seems like a no brainer no brainer for me yeah well I don't know you know what they're weird they're hot yeah it is what it is the answer clear as day yeah same Coffee Cup and everything I shouldn't want us to like flashier always come just your brain is have now I'm just trying to think of what he probably calls Alexis at its leg probably Lexi Baby Golden Bear Ford I don't even I'm trying to think of it he's stroking Alexis his hair and he's on my literally beanie baby I'm in maybe maybe yes maybe keeney bathing suit okay guys we've been talking about cody Simpson and Miley Cyrus every episode for as long as I can remember honestly I feel like it's been it's been forever with it and it's with the help of CD because I feel like honestly Miley and cody if I take a guess they're definitely in the CBD game instagram stories now because they dropped little hints like this wrecks and this one I think is the most obvious one they've done just a clear question and knows engineering dating on Youtube like video will come up I think like gossip girl or something I think it was gossip girl I hopefully video still up for sure and so are Rian I and look every time I see a new picture of them my anxiety just skies through the roof going strong it seems like they're going you know it may be because nobody knows me now you all know so ha ha lexus I think you really gotta keep an eye on both of their variety of THC free products ranging from classic CBD Oil Tinctures to CBD Gumy's and even a full line of products but when it comes to McKee like I'm just thinking of like buzzwords that Mad I think of when I think of Alexis Rats like curious George like the guy in the yellow hat yeah they're laying in bed and Zeus scape like CB maybe cbd bath bomb CBD PM the CBD bath bombs combined relaxing sense like Eucalyptus and lavender with one hundred grams of high-quality

like I'm trying to think of like they're doing something funny as a baby you know what the point if you can have like hot picture of Alexis Ren as your background ABAD MD don't worry about it while we had the one thing we are worrying about it is Miley Cyrus and Cody Simpson because once again cody she is acting no offense is not normal like I don't I don't WanNa start accusing people of anything right now would not be true to myself and to the listener going headfirst into this and the way I see it or the way I I look at it I guess is maybe like a coping mechanism you know happy if she just if this is a coping mechanism and she's not truly moved on and this is just a way of her move on and she's going to end up being more sat in the end because she suppressing the crazy like you don't jump from you yes you could go with whoever you want go do your thing of course get out there but jumping from serious relationship the ways you think it's probably just a holiday by golden baby likes loving bathing suit lady you think she thinks he calls too serious relationship too serious relationship is not healthy the will in my opinion of what she's doing right now I think she really is like just endlessly miley cyrus is a very eccentric human being so of course she's different than you me anybody else everybody's different but the way she's acting of I didn't actually say what I think about these things and I just sat here and I was like Oh yeah they're nice I have to say what's on my mind yeah I am worried about Miley Cyrus because this from serious relationship to then like married yeah then new girlfriend then new boyfriend really fast everything's on her like go out and data bunch of people and like her best life I feel like she's getting into a serious relationship with Cody Simpson yes and it's worrying me because number one the weight would be assigned for for worry that's what people do when they're on drugs dating somebody for five days and they go get matching tattoos you're fucked up so they we just don't have to think about anything else when you can throw yourself into a brand new relationship with a super hot twenty two year old or however the Heck Oldie is and there are just ndi is trusted by everyone from bar so bloggers to professional athletes to even Joe Jonas to keep them at the top of their game every day Rian I love their CBD really and she's blocking out everything else right but I feel like it's also that's a very easy way to get hurt in the end miley cyrus is going to end up being unhappy her the I mean if anybody dates miley cyrus for five days yeah it's Miley Cyrus but yeah I just I I think it's crazy going so fast yeah I was really worried when I first saw the tattoo thing at my first thought was oh God got matching tattoos and that I feel like would as we even mentioned the fact that she did comment on this thing need oxygen can't breathe I stand for ever ship and the jails commented a bunch of ship Workin brain works for talk yeah what's happening although I support it because they're both you know they're just living their lives again tattoos they're living it up on instagram I just confused I don't know how one could jump you did get tattoos I think together but hers is a different Tattoo from what from Coney God but I don't I it is it's crazy and she's like she's already throwing out forever yeah you know she's gone forever out there already you've been dating this guy for literally two weeks maybe you know they've been friends for him she's been sick recently but before that she's like always doing Yoga Cody Simpson's talking to the press about how they're like not really down for partying he said my I don't know I get so confused because I'm like I feel like this is just Miley and she why everything on her social media has been this is three photos he they got tattoos the third photo my hands are just out his pants okay so I want to say that I support my Lisa interest and whatever one hundred percent because I love Miley Cyrus and she's a queen and you guys know how much we love her she can do no wrong in my eyes and I feel like we've really been promoting I really and you are really in love with him right now but just be careful Miley and be careful cody Simpson because you're going to get your heart broken I keep zooming in on her hand like fans beyond breath yeah I mean get married and get divorced like I agree I mean I would think that it's not be as naive as we act unleash your souls Farrar was it a Ferrari or the laboratory scratcher Lambeau we'll put you look so right now and that's why they work so well because they are like same they've got the same mindset on life but but it is look she's jumping facts friend yeah that's rocks do fucking Rockstar rocks Mary Bunch of people but I would love to be Miley Cyrus me Rockstar so right now to keep kissing cody Simpson and getting tattoos and you know what I'm shipping it she shipping it Kissing Cody Simpson is not bad no I agree I would love to just see her out with different people each week I think that would be fantastic but we don't own her life so she could do whatever she wants exactly exactly she's think that after having a marriage last for like nine months that may be wouldn't wanNA rapidly get married again but right talks irs are real low let's be honest Miley Cyrus that you're going to settle down Cody Simpson no I'm going to remember this clip when they get feelings I don't know if that's what she's doing all she could just be really really in love with owning it wants to be in a relationship with him and Cody Simpson's big time file Tagami they send me like a code to get into this founder circle thing online after signing up my God I got the code I didn't get the coats and timing I'm waiting for the they said Disney plus tweeted out basically like every single movie TV show that's going to be on their platform months it comes out November Twelfth they know that the best of both she's dating cody earn bright hands the Franson talking to hate on it I'm just saying it's worrisome a little bit yeah I off the year subscription but you have to sign it for three years I was on a mommy blog trying to figure out where the code was the guy if you already if you're already like a Disney member or something then you're in the founder circle then you get a code when you sign up for Dizzy and you get like twenty three dollars Mary but she is a Rockstar Iraqis Life Salazar's is Rockstar and rock stars Mary Tut's people rockstars Mary tons of people and I'm just have the have the page opened up waiting to get into the founder so all I don't have the code but I'm assuming it's coming at some point yeah I googled it that's what I'm thinking because I'm looking at what they said that it's going to be on there and then I'm I'm thinking about what's on Disney up right They have they have everything's ver I understand that people there's some people that don't let friends but I will say that Hank was one of those people for a long time yeah like fuck friends and then I started under circle before signing up for I thought it was because we early I saw that too but apparently there was people who were at the d twenty three expo or like in apparently like there was some other I don't know I think you don't think the coach ever I don't think I've been under this whole this whole time that the code is coming no I think like you had to be in the events and she broke down I was like I don't think I'm getting this code well I would say that I have the Disney APP and it's Free Sinar it's all leaving wants Disney like all going to be gone I'm going to be like an exclusive Disney streamer although it is still dizzy so I don't know but maybe there it also just be eliminating the Disney APP and you're going to have to like upgrade to the dizzy plus app you know what I'm saying they're going to be like this APP is done you have to because I could log in with my cable provider yeah but they have all of this shit on there I have a feeling that's going to disappear once dizzy she's also she's also a celebrity in celebrities get married like to pop into tic TACs atop the multiple times they get divorced multiple times they'll be gilded them so they could I thought it was like you know what I'm GonNa do it eventually I might as well just do it today pull my credit card info in six six ninety nine a month not bad yeah I did the same exact the people to get plus exactly although I'm pumped like they have it's GonNa be a ton of great stuff a lot of

many on the Disney that's what this APP is GonNa be yeah it's GonNa it's taking it all from there I I think I don't think you're going to be able to watch it on the Disney Disney APP anymore that's fine because I already paid for this one your song like this was this was the one I wonder that I think propelled them into stardom v. shows what's M. K. T. oh I don't know looks like he's done some very some small acting parts in stuff that nobody really cared about but so much as the bell rings sunny with a chance I think Saudi where the chance was on there although who knows with Jonas their favorite thing they've ever done they're like their worst nightmare when we were doing the Trivia and I was asking for questions wasn't Demi Lovato and as the Bell Rings and justice ace from from seventeen again sterling knight yes part of the Hallway but no it was not it was not Shirley night I'm thinking of this guy what the heck is his name I'll find it so come on like damn this was this great what do you remember the show as the bell rings that would show leading into other shows yeah and they actually had some pretty decent songs come out of Jonas that I like when they come on like sometimes I'll listen to others and just put it on shuffle and Jonas Biala Tony Oller wonder what Tony Hollers doing right now I don't know but I wonder if we'll get this series on their you know like throw everything on there even this even the I don't know why that popped in my head but it was like five seconds I was sure it was five minutes long long TV show and it only took place in this really sad because I love I love Joan I mean I love Jarvis because I love them like looking back boy was this show bad but like I loved watching it and with the chance yeah it was Demi Levato right yeah it was I I don't know why the two girls talking about my neighbors their mom threw a question about Jonas and both of them answered like no do not bring Jonas they will get so mad Tony Oller I wonder if he's been doing anything else oh no he has good for him yeah sin been in a couple of the sale taste in their mouth right because during the documentary when they talked about Jonas won't yeah they were like that was a really low point in our careers just re they see Ahler is MK.

Laurie has never been with me in any of you that I've done wow really trauma actually she has all the trust in you then I have staff so what he does he's also ask we can cut the likes to stir the pilot but I've learned in a situation that are good at doing interviews flip it yeah so I was like you know I don't WanNa talk about that I I messed up in the past but what if I asked you publicly on a date or what if I want to do that things yeah and so I'd vowed not to do that again and so she was asking me questions and she had asked a second question and I really didn't want to speak on it and so I did what most people would good maybe she got really really high okay ready do don't lie you she I definitely find her attractive and she has a wonderful personality she exudes excellence but at the same time people have to realize that no no I just be going up tough mudder I've messed up you know are required to myself and people going to slander me and people I think you've done a great job appreciate you I feel like we'll try and say rape Assad like yeah like just go yeah it sounds so boring because what had happened was and somebody said I'm the complete trash somebody else said Oh that was cute and funny and then someone said Hey Marion Barry Fair saw my Dan what you want from me feel so at this point Tom homeys telling me I just don't care complete trashing your is cool or McGregor now it's funny because it was a joke but then that's it always gets like taken so serious context also I in however you guys do a play that audio back on course I was I made a mistake I don't like Dayton public but if I were to ask you we can who to put her on the spot but she she's funny because when Dylan was here he would start to say stuff and she'd be like like you can't I have made a mistake and I said publicly that I won't I will try not to make that mistake again so therefore I simply flipped it it's like thirteen gray say I'm going to respond because in the interviews boring

How to Protect Your Business DTNS 3819

"Coming up on. An epic way emotion capture faces. invidia passes Intel and Mike Johnson and Allen Alfred help us understand how to keep your business secure. This is the daily Tech News for Thursday July ninth, twenty, twenty, in Los Angeles on Tom, merit and from Studio Redwood I'm Sarah Lane from lack merit. I'm Justin Young. For the outskirts of Los Angeles sign the show's producer. And we're very happy to continue security week with a couple of excellent guests, first of all Mike Johnson see so of fastly and Co host of the security vendor relationship podcast. Mike good to have you. Great to be here. Thanks for having me and Allen Alford delivery so at NTT Data Services and Co host of the defense in depth podcast Allen, back. Thank you so much. We were just talking about the the world of of ordering a drink in the time pandemic as as well as talking about the secret life of podcast host pets. That's all on good day. Internet become a member at Patriot dot com slash. Let's start with a few things you should know. Well, this is exciting for photographers Canon announced the four five forty five Megapixel murless system camera with the ability to record eight K. twelve bit raw video within buddy stabilization as well there are five is expected to ship in July for the low price of three thousand, eight, hundred ninety nine dollars, just for the body can, and also introduced. The are six twenty point one megapixel sensor maximum resolution of four K.. K. Sixty frames per second shipping the body at the end of August, four, two, thousand, four, hundred, ninety, nine, what a bargain apple confirmed multiple outlets that the company will continue to support thunderbolt connectivity on Max that use apple silicon thunderbolt connections require the use of Intel, made controllers, apples, ships USB, enlightening on its existing arm based mobile devices like IPAD and iphone I'm no. I'm not the only one that. On yesterday's show or elsewhere whether apple would continue to support thunderbolt, but I like to imagine that they made this clarification because i. Fuji Film Released Mac, Os version of its Fujifilm X Webcam software to let owners use their x series cameras as a Webcam Fuji you film released the Webcam tool for windows back. In May, the software is available as a free download and compatible with Mac os ten point twelve. That's Sierra up to ten point fifteen catalina, but it does not mentioned the Beta of Mac. Os Big at least not yet. FACEBOOK announce it has moved to information networks associated accounts and pages. One network had fifty four accounts and fifty pages removed from facebook and four from instagram for posting as fake residents of the State of Florida, discussing political consultant Roger Stone the second network involved thirty five accounts and fourteen pages removed from facebook and thirty eight from instagram for creating fake reporters and news organizations in Brazil linked to the office. Brazil's president facebook also banned a Canadian PR firm for interference in six Latin American countries and linked to disinformation campaign to an AD agency in Ukraine. TIKTOK TRANSPARENCY REPORT says it took down more than forty nine million videos globally during the second half of two thousand nineteen for violations of either the APPS, community guidelines or of service that makes up less than one percent of all tick tock videos uploaded in that period users in India and those a start users in India had the most bold at sixteen million and the United States came in second. Second with four point, six million videos pulled time's up wink. Smart Home Users wink announced its delayed plans of charging customers five dollars. A month will finally take effect on July. Twenty seventh customers who do not pay to subscribe are going to lose access to voice in remote APP controls third party integrations, groups, robots, shortcuts advanced settings several other functions so by twenty-seventh. You'll have to make your decision. Elon Musk announced at the computer brain interface startup Noor Link will provide an update on its progress on August. Twenty eighth last year, the company announced successfully implanted extremely thin wires into animal brains, using a surgical robot designed to connect to an external processing units, and I never thought this many Qr code stories in one week, but what's happening now? Letting Users Stream qr codes on receipts and storefronts to. To directly contact companies over what's APP, the APP also now let's businesses share their. What's at based product catalogs outside of what's APPS? The links will work outside of the APP what's at business APP now has fifty million monthly active business users more than fifteen, million of those in India and more than five billion in Brazil. All Right? Let's talk a little more about what's going on with Qube, Justin. Oh this old thing. Sensor Tower estimates that eight percent of the nine hundred and ten thousand users who signed up for que- three months they're free. Three month trial stayed around as paid users that comes to seventy two thousand paid users. This does not represent all of these users, just the ones who got the free trial initially in the first three days for comparison Sensor Tower estimates that eleven percent of the nine point, five million users who sign up for a free trial of Disney plus converted to paid users. We be told verge that more than five point six million people have downloaded the absence launch sensor tower puts the estimate. Four point five million qube shot back, saying censor towers numbers for paid subscribers. is quote incorrect by an order of magnitude but went. Yeah? Honestly the eight percent conversions not bad. Just give qube some some props for that. It's just you need to have more users signing up in the beginning for that to make seventy two thousand is a much yeah, I mean the comparison to Disney, plus is a Disney plus having eleven percent. You kinda like okay. Eight percent is under that, but it's Disney plus a lot more users at offset, so it turns out to a lot more users today that are now paying Qube, also raised an exorbitant amount of money so to have a conversion rate that on paper as I. Might be. Okay for another company is not necessarily okay for this company. Because to make that money back is going to take you know there have been estimates of like hundreds of years, which is just not GonNa Happen, so? A lot of this has to do with the upper management of Qube, saying hey, this is pandemic related. We know what we're doing. You know we've got robbed based. You know virus later this us, and and and and yet they've they've walked back certain stances. You know they're now. Allow allowing cast into televisions because everybody's at home, I believe they know allow screen shots which they didn't. Initially which kind of hurts social sharing of things, but I don't know man I. Don't know I. I got a couple of people who were like Oh crap. Forgot to cancel Qube so I'm part of that number will go there. There's seventy two thousand. The percentage of users is really not something you should focus on to be totally honest with you if you want to look at the success or failure of and very obviously I think we know where on this side of that binary the the. Way Is that nine hundred and ten thousand users signed up initially. They wanted seven point five million in their first year. Now obviously they got time to go between here. And then everything in that business is hit driven, so they are a hit away from all of a sudden, the resurrection of being the avalanche of stories we read about as opposed to the dissolving of it. However, this is terrible and everything we thought were terrible. Signs appear to indeed be terrible signs. The the hopeful message from the story from quitting. Is They still have a lot of time to turn it around? Yeah I am. Six months. Seven hundred fifty million dollars in cash on hand is what they report having. So. They've got time to do it, but again you gotTa have the content. If you want people to pay money for a service, they have no free tier. which is another thing for them? I saw I saw you nodding emphatically as Justin was going through some of these numbers. What is your take on all of this? It was really good to think about the original number of what they wanted it to be. And how they're not anywhere near that, and that's not the frame of reference. That I had that I had in mind. I was like Kim ten eight percent, pretty good conversion rate, but when you're absolute number that you're starting with is significantly lower than what they were going for that. That's what really kind of resonated with me and what I was hearing. Well maybe they get some money out of Sony. They seem to be given it away. Sony announced it has invested two hundred fifty million dollars in epic games, giving it a minority stake, not a controlling stake in of course epic was quick to reassure people. They will continue to publish on non Sony Platforms. The companies say they have a shared goal of advancing the state of the art and technology particularly. They talked a lot about real time. Three d experiences and epic just released an example of that. Advancing motion capture technology with an IOS APP called live link face that can stream facial animation data in real time from the iphones cameras on characters in unreal engine live link face uses apple's true depth cameras, so works on the iphone ten forward and apples ar kit platform epic hopes it can make facial capture easier and more accessible developers, and it can work either here in a home, office kind of situation or Adjust to work well with super professional setups that have multiple actor actors in Mo kept suits and head mounted rigs on a sound stage, and all that it's not the first IOS facial capture APP by any stretch, but it's significant given the millions of developers worldwide who use unreal engine. This is more about Sony's soon. Place in I think production than it necessarily is in games. It just shows you how sprawling Sony is. And how much epic is Kinda punched above their weight that we immediately think. Now Olympic Games or anything on unreal engine is going to be a playstation exclusive. I if you've watched the behind the scenes on the man delorean, that is a great example of what unreal engine is being used Ford now in a lot of Hollywood production and even commercials, but it's a way to put actors not only in a more immersive experience when they're shooting on what would otherwise be a fairly antiseptic green screen, but also gives the an in camera world, so animators can more a fully kind of put together everything in in post production so I think this is more about Sony selling the best cameras both in production, and in a users palm's than it is. is necessarily video games, and honestly the the up excited this which doesn't have that much to do Sony particularly is is, is that technology taking advantage of that camera technology in the iphone and creating something that can work unreal engine, which we always think about video games, but our producer Roger pointed out in our pre show today like unreal engine, also used for a lot of effects and movie effects, and that sort of thing which I guess does tie back to Sony a little bit there, too, so I don't know Alan I. It seems like it's pretty impressive from the outside right. I'm like in and I'm going to be selfish. Here I'm a Gamer and my I saw this news was. Oh, Hey, more real. Hollywood actors in more video games because it's easier to to rope in the major talent. If you don't have them have to do all the goofy stuff. And where all the goofy things this technology is gonNA is going to bring more folks in I think that's phenomenal. Well! We don't spend a whole lot of time in fact later. Talking about stock prices on this particular show because they move around a lot, they fluctuate a lot and they often impact financial traders, and not really tech consumers like ourselves, but it is notable that on Wednesday in videos market capitalization past Intel's Invidia is best known for its consumer graphics cards, but it also has moved into supplying data centers, automobiles and artificial intelligence. Now the shift or working from home has also helped videos data center business as an example as of Wednesday and videos, emperor chips are available on Google cloud aws azure still intel out sells invidia. A pretty wide margin, analysts expect invidia to hit about fourteen point six billion dollars in revenue this year while Intel should end up at seventy three point eight billion. Allergies seem pleased by this news. I'm very happy with it. I'M GONNA. nvidia Fan boy I'm talking to you guys on a computer with a ten eighty and the twenty eighty ti replacement is in a box right next to me. I'll be building out the new rig this weekend I'm a huge fan of and it's for a lot of reasons, but I'll tell you right now. Now one of them that that's timely and really relevant for me. I'm using folding at home right now. Leveraging that video processor to actually try to map out covid nineteen, the folding at home guys have come up with a Kobe nineteen. You know to help research for the vaccine so I've got a I've got an nvidia GP chugging on Kobe right now as we speak. Team DT SS number three, sixty seven in the folding at home project right now so I'm glad to hear you you're you're part of that wider effort to? I think this is, this is not this is great news. INVIDIA, it's it's not great news for Intel. Because I think what it shows invidia up until now has been doing the right things and staying ahead of the next piece, which was knowing that a I chips data centers. Were the places of growth, and until just hasn't navigated that as well Mike. Do you agree? Totally Agree Intel has tried. They tried to make some chips. They've tried to get involved with some of the autonomous vehicle work. it just hasn't caught on the way that in videos has and a lot of videos business now being in these large cloud providers with the custom, CPI the customer GPU capabilities that videos providing an Intel is mostly just let's build a faster CPU and and that's really all we hear about, and it's. It's really the market saying hey, we think the future of video stronger than the future of Intel. And that is the takeaway here. It's not that Nvidia is bigger Sarah pointed out. It's that invidious arrows pointed in the direction that investors like and they feel confident about and Intel is caught between a rock and a hard place here, the Rock, being Nvidia, and the hard place, being arm as arm starts to make more inroads into markets that traditionally have been Intel's as well. And you've seen apple switching to arm away from Intel, as a great for instance of that. Well Google open sourced its enterprise vulnerability scanner called Sue Nami which is designed to operate at extremely large scales. We're talking about enterprises with millions of Internet connected devices sue. NAMI comes into components. The first is a reconnaissance module that scans the network for open ports, then tests to see what protocols and services are running on them. Google says this is essentially end map with some custom code. A second component takes that list of ports and services, and actually runs benign exploits against them to look for weak points this second module. Module supports plug INS so that organizations can add new attack vectors vulnerabilities to test over time as they discover new ones current plug ins for you is and week credentials come with soon Nami when you get it from get hub new plug. INS will be developed by Google and released through a second get hub repository, as well and to Nami will not be a google branded product. It will be maintained by the open source community. It's similar to coober nineties in that way. The goal for the project is zero false positives. Obviously. They know they're not going to achieve zero false positives, but it's they're focused on reducing false positives because they feel like in an. Situation that does as large as what soon nahmias four. That's where a lot of the problems can come in Alan. What do you think of this? I'm lit up. This is huge. This is a fantastic tool. That I'm going to be downloading as soon as this podcast is over. I'll be. I'll be looking at this. Obviously, a robust and map is a good thing, but the second module is really really really interesting to me. I had not heard about this becoming available. I'm very eager to get a hold of it Mike what about you? It's. It's really interesting. How they split up the two modules from the discovery side to the actual vulnerability analysis side. The second part is what always takes so long, and if you're scanning millions of end points, and you're having to wait for even a minute per in point to analyze all of those vulnerabilities, it takes forever, and by the time you're scan. Scan is dime. Your environment has changed so being able to have. This is how we're going to look at discovery, an asset inventory as a concept and do that quickly, and then come back and do the scanning on top of that. It's really going to make this available and more real time. Scanning available to enterprise have had no chance in the past. I think a lot of people wonder why Google does this sort of thing and obviously create sue Nami for themselves. That's because they have these same problems. Why do you think they decide to open source to Nami not else. The plug INS is really like the key portion of that, so the idea is get other people contributing. Plug ins back to Google. So Google is now able to embrace the larger community. Have them do some of Kukals? Work for them. And take advantage of that well at the same time getting bug fixes. Google has one environment. They keep growing. They keep you know they're going to buy companies that are GONNA. Look different to what Google is used to so having some diversity of thought of what these tools look like. are going to just help them going forward as Google continues to grow. Allen do you think this ends up having a halo effect where people love soon Nami, and so think a little favorably about Google Enterprise Services! Google's Google play to Mike, Planets and enterprise play. There are ecosystem play I'm sorry they're trying to create an ecosystem. And if it catches it if the community buys in it's a win win for everybody. It's a matter of whether or not they buy it or not. I think it's going to depend on how easy the framework is to author. Plug INS for how robust it already is in the first place. WHAT PLUG INS are required? There's a lot of if they're. All right folks if you want to get all the headlines each day in about five minutes, be sure to subscribe daily tech headlines Dot Com. Yesterday we talked Seth Rosenblatt about what you can do to keep yourself secure at home today. We WanNa talk about what your business can do to keep itself secure. We were just talking about the most recent example Google. Nami, but there's a lot to defend a with a business tech. Let's start with what needs to be protected. How do you understand that? I think that's A. That is the basis right you have to understand what business you're in. You have to understand what is important, because you can't defend every enterprise, every company, the same way, even Google and facebook massive tech companies, they protect their environments very differently from each other, because what is important to them, is different in each one of those places so going around and just talking to your business leaders talking to you, the product teams engineering teams. You know your founders depending on the size of the company, you can really get a good idea of what's important, and that's really where you need to start as well important. Figure out from there what you need to focus on. Where does the impact of each one of those sections of information or data, stores, or factories or whatnot, and that tells you? Hey, this is this is now what I need to protect. Alan, how do you go about that? Do you think you have full agreement? I think the first thing is is a a business impact analysis. Where you literally rope the business together you get everybody to Mike's Point. I'll even add and say you bring in HR. You bring in legal. You bring in payroll. You bring accounts payable you bring in. Absolutely. Every organization in the business needs representation you sit down collectively, and you say what what is the most important to us as a business, and and obviously a lot of players are gonNA immediately try to push their agenda forward and. And say we're the most important. We're the most important and so I'm a big believer in having an objective scoring system, doing sort of a real business impact analysis, and collectively you should get to a point where you start to realize like Oh. Actually yeah, these are probably the top three most important things that we have as a company, and now the cease, or whoever's in charge of security knows okay. These are where I'm going to focus my efforts, so let's figure out what needs to be protected. You've got to figure out what you're protecting it against I. Guess Right. Yeah, risk is sort of the next phase of that and I start with what's most important, and then figure out what are the risks against whatever it is, we've decided as most important, and you've got to go through and look at you, know we. We've got a tool in the business called threat modeling. Where you basically you know it's like. Let's say let's say that what? What you've determined as important as your company source, Cut Your High Tech Company. You produce software products. Your company Source Code is the highest value target that you're most concerned about protecting you have to look. Where does that code reside can see it. Can the Internet touch it? Can somebody compromise a local desktop and get to it that way and you start to map out all. All the possible ways that the bad guys can get to this one thing you're trying to protect. And that's called threat modeling, and from there you can begin to address the individual and specific risks and say okay. If we invest a million dollars, we can stop all of this. If we invest eight hundred thousand dollars, we can stop all these really weird corner cases and we. We invest five hundred thousand dollars. We can stop the most likely you know an and you start to back out the the the budget physics versus the reality of how tricky it is for the bad guys to do what they're doing. And at some point you draw your line in this, and you declare where we're mitigating risk, and no more, and that's called risk appetite. Mike, how do you assess all that stuff? A way of doing that is bringing outside Bring in, you can bring in a consultant. You can bring in any number of these companies that specialize in it that they have people who day in day out what they're doing is trying to understand the weaknesses of companies, and you one of the reasons to bring people in from the outside. Is You're not? so focused on your own view. It's very easy. You're in your comfort zone. You assume that you know everything, but by bringing in an outside party to take a look, they're able to then bring bring a new set of eyes for for more advanced companies. They actually have these teams in house. They've got people who think adversarial. They think offensively. What are the ways that I can break into a company or the ways that I can bypass security controls, and they take a I'm going to just break in and get to the goods whatever those goods are view on everything. And then they just keep doing those tests over and over again and you learn from them. You take those findings back and use those to feedback into your risk analysts risk analysis to say hey. This is actually a bigger risk than I thought. Our source code is actually sitting in open. Get Hub repository, and we didn't know we didn't even know we use. And by having that external perspective helps you find those kinds of things helps you understand what your current status. So you gotta figure out what you're protecting. You GotTa figure what the threats are, and then you've got to assess all of that like you're. You're describing. That you know I mean if you're a big company with a lot of money. I guess it might seem easy to do that, but if you're a small company without a lot of money you're. You're still going to be looking at the budget in all of those cases. You've got to convince the people that write the checks to pay for it. How do you do that? So, that's security. Performance management is is is sort of area where that comes into play. And the whole idea there is you've you've outlined these risks? You've addressed him in business terms. You've put this whole package together. You should be able to present to the board or to the C.. Suite, or whoever you're having a report to upstairs a good map of where you stand. You've looked at individual risk. You've also hopefully conducted a maturity assessment where you can actually truly look at your entire organization and say on a scale of one to five five being the most. Most Secure Company in the world zero being horrible. You know we're. We're a one point eight in this area, and we're a two point, oh and that area where a three point five in that area, and you dissect Your Business and actually compare yourself to a maturity curve. If you speak to the specific risks, you've done your business impact analysis. You have your maturity curve scoring. You should be able to bundle all that up into a pretty tidy package. Take that upstairs. Upstairs and start having that conversation again. Security performance management says that you want to outline dollars, versus that as well so you can, you can sit down and have the conversation to say. We're at one point five today and we WANNA be a four point. Oh, that's going to cost us. X. Dollars. Oh, excess too much well, okay Gimme why dollars and I can give you a three point five on the maturity score and start having that conversation where you're sort of. Of dynamically moving around these targets in and having the conversation about the dollars associated with them at any given point. If you've done it right on that first stage we talked about the business should know what a cares about, and you're not coming to them scaring them. You're coming to them, saying these things you say you care about. Here's how we're going to address and I assume you WANNA. Make the argument that it's going to cost money not to address it to. Yes clearly, and and the cost of that has to be has to be outlined to measure it as well. So, how'd you get all that done? So, so part of it is once you actually have that money. Is You need a team? There there's no way that a single person can in any reasonable size environment make a dent in security. It's just CH-. There's not enough hours in the day. There's a lot of people in the security field were were more and more become becoming a popular profession, but we actually still have negative unemployment and have for quite some time. There are more jobs than there are people. And finding the right people finding these good people who can come in have an impact to help move that bar to help protect the environment such that you're not gonNA. Have a breach. You're not getting. Your customers are going to be able to trust you. A lot of it just comes back to hiring good people. Giving them a plan giving them a strategy and A. Go, go do. Yeah, it's. I mean it's easier said than done to find them. You got any tips for them before we finish this up. Finding good people. A lot of it is meeting them where they are. So you know you know pre pandemic? It was going to security conferences. Now, it's really paying attention to online participation how people are sharing in presenting research that they might be doing how they are frankly even interacting with others, or are they being helpful or they being a negative influence? It's just you know, are they? The kind of people that you WanNa work with, so you go and find those environments where people are being active today. You pay attention you listen. You'll learn you. Then decide to have some discussions, and that can really help you build a nucleus around which to find more people and more people and more people find that initial core. Yeah and that's like Kirsten Brazier. who was on the show earlier this week? Talks about like just reaching out to others in in the in the in the community in the Infosec community, and that seems like that's a big part of it. Like what she had to say about mentoring others, that's that's the kind of person that you wanna work with someone who's actively trying to help others. Yeah, absolutely. Well everybody in our sub. Reddit actively helps each other by submitting stories and also voting on others to make sure we all know what's important to the rest of us. You can do the same daily. Tech News show at DOT. Ready Dot, com all right. Let's take a look the Mailbag, Shall We oh? Let's got mon a wrote in and said it was so great. Listening to Seth said Rosenblatt was our guest yesterday. Thanks for an excellent security week thus far, thank you got to mountain. Says since Seth brought up the topic of insecure WIFI routers. I thought I would share a recent study from the frown. Haufer institute where they tested one hundred twenty seven home routers from various popular brands and every single one of them had known security flaws. He links to zd net article about this study which will have on our show nuts got says I'm starting to feel like we should all be treating our routers the same way we do phones and laptops and upgrade them every three to four years on average. We probably keeping the phones longer. At this point in time upgrading the. New Spells router subscriptions. Hey shot patrons that our master and grandmaster levels including at Jeff, Wilkes Sonia, vining and Rouge Shawn. Brantley also thanks so much to our guest today. Mike Johnson and Allan Alford Mike. Lynn folks know where they can keep up with what you do. Lewington is actually where I tend to hang out so find me on link. Dan. I'm reasonably prolific. That was where Alan and I met way back in the day, just chattering at each other on Lincoln so just look for Mike Johnson security on Lincoln and you'll find me. Very Cool Alfred left.

How to Protect Your Business - DTNS 3819

"Coming up on. An epic to emotion capture faces. invidia passes Intel and Mike Johnson and Allen Alfred. help us understand how to keep your business secure. This is the daily Tech News for Thursday July Ninth Twenty Twenty in Los Angeles on Tom Merit and from Studio Redwood I'm Sarah Lane from lack merit I'm Justin Young. For the outskirts of Los Angeles sign the show's producer. And we're very happy to continue security week. With a couple of excellent guests first of all Mike Johnson see so of fastly and Co host of the security vendor relationship podcast Mike good to have you. Great to be here. Thanks for having me and Allen Alford delivery so at NTT data, services and Co host of the defense in depth podcast Allen back. Thank you so much. We were just talking about the the world of of ordering a drink in the time pandemic as as well as talking about the secret life of podcast host pets. That's all on good day. Internet become a member at Patriot dot com slash. Let's start with a few things you should know. Well this is exciting for photographers. Canon announced the four five at forty five megapixel merely system camera with the ability to record eight K. twelve bit raw video with in body stabilization. As well there are five is expected to ship in July for the low low price of three thousand, eight, hundred ninety nine dollars, just for the body can and also introduced the. The are six twenty point one megapixel sensor maximum resolution of four K., sixty frames per second shipping the body at the end of August four, two, thousand, four, hundred, ninety, nine, what a bargain apple confirmed multiple outlets that the company will continue to support thunderbolt connectivity on Max that use apple silicon thunderbolt connections require the use of Intel made controllers, apples ships you. Enlightening on its existing arm, based mobile devices like IPAD and iphone. I'm no I'm not the only one that. On yesterday's show or elsewhere whether apple would continue to support thunderbolt, but I like to imagine that they made this clarification because i. Food you film released. Mac Os version of its Fujifilm X Webcam software let owners use their x series cameras as a Webcam Fuji Film released the Webcam Tool for windows back in May. The software is available as a free download and compatible with Mac os ten point twelve. That's Sierra up to ten point fifteen catalina, but it does not mentioned the Beta of Mac Os big at least not yet. FACEBOOK announced it has moved to information networks associated accounts and pages. One network had fifty four accounts and fifty pages removed from facebook and four from instagram for posting as fake residents of the State of Florida discussing political consultant Roger Stone the second network involved thirty five accounts and fourteen pages removed from facebook and thirty eight from instagram for creating fake reporters and news organizations in Brazil linked to the office. Brazil's president facebook also banned a Canadian PR firm for interference in six Latin American countries and linked disinformation campaign to an AD agency in Ukraine. TIKTOK TRANSPARENCY REPORT says it took down more than forty nine million videos globally during the second half of two thousand nineteen for violations of either the APPS, community guidelines or of service that makes up less than one percent of all tick tock videos uploaded in that period users in India and those a start users in India had the most bold at sixteen, million and the United. States came in second. Second with four point, six million videos pulled time's up. Wink Smart Home Users wink announced its delayed plans of charging customers five dollars. A month will finally take effect on July. Twenty seventh customers who do not pay to subscribe are going to lose access to voice in remote APP. Controls Third Party integrations, groups, robots, shortcuts advanced settings several other functions so by twenty-seventh. You'll have to make your decision. Elon Musk announced at the computer brain interface startup Noor. Link will provide an update on its progress on August twenty eighth last year, the company announced successfully implanted extremely thin wires into animal brains, using a surgical robot designed to connect to an external processing units, and I never thought this many Qr code stories in one week, but what's happening now letting users scan qr codes on receipts and storefronts to directly contact companies over what's APP the APP also now let's businesses share their. What's at based product catalogs? What's APPs the links will work outside of the APP. The what's at business APP now has fifty million monthly active business users more than fifteen million of those in India and more than five billion in Brazil all right. Let's talk a little more about what's going on with Qube Justin. Oh, this old thing sensor tower estimates that eight percent of the nine hundred and ten thousand users who signed up for Qube three months They're free. Three month trial stayed around as paid users that comes to seventy two thousand paid users. This does not represent all of these users, just the ones who got the free trial initially in the first three days for comparison, Sensor Tower estimates that eleven percent of the nine point, five million users who sign up for a free trial of Disney plus converted to paid users. Told verge that more than five point, six million people have downloaded the absence launch sensor tower puts the estimate. Four point five million qube shot back, saying censor towers numbers for paid subscribers. is quote incorrect by an order of magnitude but went. Yeah. Honestly the eight percent conversions not bad. Just. Give qube some some props for that. It's just you need to have more users signing up in the beginning for that to make seventy two thousand is a much yeah. I mean the comparison to Disney pluses. Disney plus having eleven percent. You kinda like okay. Eight percent is under that, but it's Disney plus a lot more users at offset, so it turns out to a lot more users today that are now paying Qube also raised an exorbitant amount of money so to have a conversion rate that on paper as I. Might Be Okay for another company is not necessarily okay for this company. Because to make that money back is going to take you know there have been estimates of like hundreds of years, which is just not gonNA happen so. A, lot of this has to do with the upper management of Qube, saying hey, this is pandemic related. We know what we're doing. You know we've got robbed based. You know virus later this us, and and and and yet they've they've walked back certain stances. You know they're now. Allow allowing cast into televisions because everybody's at home I, believe they know. Allow screen shots which they didn't. Initially which kind of hurts social sharing of things, but I don't know man I. Don't know I. I got a couple of people who were like Oh. CRAP, forgot to cancel Qube so I'm part of that number will go there. There's seventy two thousand. The percentage of users is really not something you should focus on to be totally honest with you if you want to look at the success or failure of and very obviously I think we know where on this side of that binary, the the numbers lay is that nine hundred and ten thousand users signed up initially. They wanted seven point five million in their first year. Now obviously, they got time to go between here. And then everything in that business is hit driven, so they are a hit away from all of a sudden, the resurrection of being the avalanche of stories we read about as opposed to the dissolving of it. However, this is terrible and everything we thought were terrible. Signs appear to indeed be terrible signs. The the hopeful message from the story from Qube is they still have a lot of time to turn it around? Yeah I. Six months. Seven hundred fifty million dollars in cash on hand is what they report having. So. They've got time to do it, but again you gotTa have the content. If you want people to pay money for a service, they have no free tier. which is another thing for them? I saw I saw you nodding. Emphatically, as Justin was going through some of these numbers. What is your take on all this? It was really good to think about the original number of what they wanted it to be. And how they're not anywhere near that, and that's not the frame of reference that I had that I had in mind. I was like Kim Ten. Eight percent, pretty good conversion rate, but when you're absolute number that you're starting with is significantly lower than what they were going for that. That's what really kind of resonated with me and what I was hearing. Well. Maybe they get some money out of Sony. They seem to be given it away Sony announced. It has invested two hundred fifty million dollars in epic games, giving it a minority stake, not a controlling stake in of course epic was quick to reassure people. They will continue to publish on non Sony Platforms. The companies say they have a shared goal of advancing the state of the art and technology particularly. They talked a lot about real time. Three d experiences and epic just released an example of that. Advancing motion capture technology with an IOS APP called live link face that can stream facial animation data in real time from the iphones cameras on characters in unreal engine live link face uses apple's true depth cameras, so it works on the iphone ten forward and a our kit platform epic hopes it can make facial capture easier and more accessible developers, and it can work either here in a Home Office kind of situation or Adjust to work well with super professional setups that have multiple actor actors in Mo kept suits and head mounted rigs on a sound stage, and all that it's not the first IOS facial capture APP by any stretch, but it's significant given the millions of developers worldwide who use unreal engine. Yeah this is more about Sony's soon. Place in I think production than it necessarily is in games. It just shows you how sprawling Sony is. And how much epoch is Kinda punched above their weight that we immediately think. Now Olympic Games or anything on unreal engine is going to be a playstation exclusive I. If you've watched the behind the scenes on the man delorean, that is a great example of what unreal engine is being used Ford now in a lot of Hollywood production and even commercials, but it's a way to put actors not only in a more immersive experience when they're shooting on what would otherwise be a fairly antiseptic green screen, but also gives the an in camera world, so animators can more a fully kind of put together everything in in post production, so I think this is more about Sony selling the best cameras both in. In production and in a users palm's than it is necessarily video games, and honestly the the up excited this which doesn't have that much to do Sony. Particularly is is, is that technology taking advantage of that camera technology in the iphone and creating something that can work unreal engine, which we always think about video games, but our producer Roger pointed out in our pre show today like unreal engine for a lot of effects and movie effects, and that sort of thing which I guess does tie back to Sony a little bit there, too, so I. Don't Know Alan I. It seems like it's pretty impressive from the outside right. I'm like in and I'm going to be selfish here. I'm a Gamer and my I saw this news was. Oh, Hey, more real. Hollywood actors in more video games because it's easier to to rope in the major talent. If you don't have them have to do all the goofy stuff. And where all the goofy things, this technology is gonNA is GonNa. Bring more folks in. I think that's phenomenal. Well. We don't spend a whole lot of time. In fact, we don't really spend any time talking about stock prices on this particular show because they move around a lot, they fluctuate a lot and they often impact financial traders, and not really tech consumers like ourselves, but it is notable that on Wednesday in videos market capitalization past Intel's Invidia is best known for its consumer graphics cards, but it also has moved into. into supplying data centers, automobiles and artificial intelligence now the shift or working from home has also helped videos data center business as an example as of Wednesday and videos, emperor chips are available on Google. Cloud AWS azure Still Intel out sells invidia by a pretty wide margin. Analysts expect invidia to hit about fourteen point six billion dollars in revenue this year while Intel should end up at seventy three point eight billion. Allergies seem pleased by this news. I'm very happy with it. I'M GONNA nvidia Fan boy I'm talking to you guys on a computer with a ten eighty. And the twenty eighty ti replacement is in a box right next to me. I'll be building out the new rig this weekend I'm a huge fan of, and it's for a lot of reasons, but I'll tell you right now. One of them that that's timely and really relevant for me. I'm using folding at home right now. Leveraging that video processor to actually try to map out covid nineteen, the folding at home guys have come up with a Kobe nineteen. You know to help research for the vaccine, so I've got a I've got an nvidia. GP chugging on Kobe right now as we speak. Team DT SS number three sixty seven in the folding at home project right now so I'm glad to hear you you're you're part of that wider effort to? I think this is this is not. This is great news. INVIDIA, it's it's not great news for Intel because I think what it shows invidia up until now has been doing the right things and staying ahead of the next piece, which was knowing that a I chips data centers. Were the places of growth, and until just hasn't navigated that as well Mike. Do you agree? Totally Agree Intel has tried. They tried to make some chips. They've tried to get involved with some of the autonomous vehicle work. it just hasn't caught on the way that in videos has and a lot of videos business now being in these large cloud providers with the custom CPI, the customer GPU capabilities and videos, providing an Intel is mostly just let's build a faster CPU, and and that's really all we hear about, and it's. It's really the market saying hey, we think the future of video stronger than the future of Intel. And that is the takeaway here. It's not that nvidia is bigger pointed out. It's that invidious arrows pointed in the direction that investors like and they feel confident about and Intel is caught between a rock and a hard place here the Rock, being Nvidia and the hard place, being arm as arm starts to make more inroads into markets that traditionally have been Intel's as well. You've seen apple switching to arm away from Intel as a great for instance of that. Well Google. Open sourced its enterprise vulnerability scanner called Soon Nami which is designed to operate at extremely large scales. We're talking about enterprises with millions of Internet connected devices. Soon Nami comes in two components. The first is a reconnaissance module that scans the network for open ports, then tests to see what protocols and services are running on them Google says this is essentially. Essentially end map with some custom code, a second component takes that list of ports and services, and actually runs benign exploits against them to look for weak points. This second module supports plug ins so that organizations can add new attack vectors vulnerabilities to test over time as they discover new ones current plug ins for you is and week credentials. Come with soon Nami. Get it from get hub new plug. INS will be developed by Google and released through a second. Get hub repository, as well and to Nami will not be a google branded product. It will be maintained by the open source community. It's similar to coober nineties in that way. The goal for the project is zero false positives. I mean obviously they know they're not going to achieve zero false positives, but it's they're focused on reducing false positives because they feel like in an. Situation, that does as large as what soon nahmias four. That's where a lot of the problems can come in Alan. What do you think of this? I'm lit up. This is huge. This is a fantastic tool that I'm going to be downloading as soon as this podcast is over. I'll be I'll be looking at this. Obviously, a robust and map is a good thing, but the second module is really really really interesting to me. I had not heard about this becoming available. I'm very eager to get a hold of it Mike. What about you? It's it's really interesting how they split up the two modules from the discovery side to the actual vulnerability analysis side. The second part is what always takes so long, and if you're scanning millions of points, and you're having to wait for even a minute per in point to analyze all of those vulnerabilities, it takes forever, and by the time you're scan is dime. Your environment has changed so being able to have. This is how we're going to look at discovery, an asset inventory as a concept and do that quickly, and then come back and do the scanning on top of that. It's really going to make this available and more real time. Scanning available to enterprise had no chance in the past. I, think a lot of people wonder why Google does this sort of thing and obviously create soon Nami for themselves, because they have these same problems. Why do you think they decide to open source to Nami not else? The plug INS is really like the key portion of that, so the idea is get other people contributing plug ins back to Google. So, Google is now able to embrace the larger community have them do some of Kukals work for them? and take advantage of that well at the same time getting bug fixes, Google has one environment. They keep growing. They keep you know they're going to buy companies that are GONNA. Look different to what Google is used to so having some diversity of thought of what these tools look like. are going to just help them going forward as Google continues to grow. Allen. Do you think this ends up having a halo effect where people love soon Nami and so think a little favorably about Google Enterprise Services. Google's Google play to Mike Planets and enterprise play. There are ecosystem play. I'm sorry they're trying to create an ecosystem. And if it catches it if the community buys in it's a win win for everybody. It's a matter of whether or not they buy it or not. I think it's going to depend on how easy the framework is to author. Plug ins for how robust already is in the first place. WHAT PLUG INS are required? There's a lot of IFS there. All right folks if you want to get all the headlines each day in about five minutes, be sure to subscribe daily. TECH HEADLINES DOT COM. Yesterday we talked Seth Rosenblatt about what you can do to keep yourself secure at home today, we, WanNa talk about what your business can do to keep itself secure. We were just talking about the most recent example. Google Nami, but there's a lot to defend a with a business tech. Let's start with what needs to be protected. How do you understand that? I think that's A. That is the basis right you have to understand what business you're in. You have to understand what is important, because you can't defend every enterprise, every company, the same way even Google and facebook massive tech companies they protect their environments very differently from each other, because what is important to them, is different in each one of those places so going around and just talking to your business leaders talking to you, the product teams engineering teams. You know your founders depending on the size of the company. You can really get a good idea of what's important, and that's really where you need to start is what's important. Figure out from there what you need to focus on. Where does the impact of each one of those sections of information or data, stores or factories or whatnot, and that tells you? Hey, this is this is now what I need to protect. Alan. How do you go about that? Do you think you have full agreement? I think the first thing is is being a business impact analysis. Where you literally rope the business together you get everybody to Mike's Point I'll even add and say you bring in HR. You bring in legal. You bring in payroll. You bring accounts payable you bring in. Absolutely. Every organization in the business needs representation. You sit down collectively you say what what is the most important to us as a business, and and obviously a lot of players are gonNA immediately. Try to push their agenda forward and. And say we're the most important. We're the most important, and so I'm a big believer in having an objective scoring system, doing sort of a real business, impact analysis, and collectively you should get to a point where you start to realize like Oh, actually yeah, these are probably the top three most important things that we have as a company, and now the cease, or whoever's in charge of security knows okay. These are where I'm going to focus my efforts, so let's figure out what needs to be protected. You've got to figure out what you're protecting it against I. Guess Right. Yeah risk is is sort of the next phase of that and I start with what's most important, and then figure out what are the risks against whatever it is, we've decided as most important, and you've got to go through and look at you, know we. We've got a tool in the business called threat modeling. Where you basically you know it's like. Let's say let's say that. That, what you've determined as important as your company source, Cut Your High Tech. Company you produce Software Products Your Company source code is the highest value target that you're most concerned about protecting you have to look. Where does that code reside can see it. Can the Internet touch it? Can somebody compromise a local desktop and get to it that way and you start to map out. Out. All the possible ways that the bad guys can get to this one thing you're trying to protect and that's called threat modeling, and from there you can begin to address the individual and specific risks and say okay. If we invest a million dollars, we can stop all of this. If we invest eight hundred thousand dollars, we can stop all these really weird corner cases and And we invest five hundred thousand dollars. We can stop the most likely you know an, and you start to back out the the the budget physics versus the reality of how tricky it is for the bad guys to do what they're doing. And at some point you draw your line in this, and you declare where we're mitigating risk, and no more, and that's called. Risk Appetite. Mike! How do you assess all that stuff? A way of doing that is bringing outside Bring in. You can bring in a consultant. You can bring in any number of these companies that specialize in it that they have people who day in day out what they're doing is trying to understand the weaknesses of companies, and you one of the reasons to bring people in from the outside. Is You're not? so focused on your own view. It's very easy. You're in your comfort zone. You assume that you know everything, but by bringing in an outside party to take a look, they're able to then bring bring a new set of eyes for for more advanced companies. They actually have these teams in house. They've got people who think adversarial. They think offensively. What are the ways that I can break into a? Or the ways that I can bypass security controls, and they take a I'm going to just break in and get to the goods whatever those goods are view on everything. And then they just keep doing those tests over and over again and you learn from them. You take those findings back and use those to feedback into your risk analysis risk analysis to say hey. This is actually a bigger risk than I thought. Our source code is actually sitting in open. Get Hub repository, and we didn't know we didn't even know we use. And by having that external perspective helps you find those kinds of things helps you understand what your current status. So you gotta figure out what you're protecting, you gotTA figure out what the threats are, and then you've got to assess all of that like you're. You're describing. That you know I mean if you're a big company with a lot of money. I guess it might seem easy to do that, but if you're a small company without a lot of money, you're. You're still going to be looking at the budget all of those cases you've got to convince the people that write the checks to pay for it. How do you do that? So that's security performance management is is is sort of area where that comes into play. And and the whole idea there is you've you've outlined these risks? You've addressed him in business terms. You've put this whole package together. You should be able to present to the board, or to the C., suite, or whoever you're having a report to upstairs a good map of where you stand. You've looked at individual risk. You've also hopefully conducted a maturity assessment where you can actually truly look at your entire organization and say on a scale of one to five five being the. The Most Secure Company in the world zero being horrible. You know we're. We're a one point eight in this area, and we're a two point Oh, and that area where a three point five in that area and you dissect Your Business and actually compare yourself to a maturity curve. If you speak to the specific risk, you've done your business impact analysis. You have your maturity curve scoring. You should be able to bundle all that up into a pretty tidy package. Take that upstairs. Upstairs and start having that conversation again. Security performance management says that you want to outline dollars, versus that as well so you can, you can sit down and have the conversation to say. We're at one point five today and we WANNA be a four point. Oh, that's going to cost US X. dollars. Oh, excess too much well, okay Gimme why dollars and I can give you a three point five on the maturity score and start having that conversation where you're sort of. Of dynamically moving around these targets in in and having the conversation about the dollars associated with them at any given point. If you've done it right on that first stage we talked about the business should know what a cares about, and you're not coming to them scaring them. You're coming to them, saying these things you say you care about. Here's how we're going to address and I. ASSUME YOU WANNA make the argument that it's going to cost money not to address it to. Yes clearly, and and the cost of that has to be has to be outlined to measure it as well. So. How'd you get all that done? So, so part of it is once you actually have that money. Is You need a team? There there's no way that a single person can in any reasonable size environment make a dent in security. It's just CH- There's not enough hours in the day. There's a lot of people in the security field were were more and more become becoming a popular profession, but we actually still have negative unemployment and have for quite some time. There are more jobs than there are people. And finding the right people finding these good people who can come in have an impact to help move that bar to help protect the environment such that you're not gonNA have a breach. You're not getting. Your customers are going to be able to trust you. A lot of it just comes back to hiring good people. Giving them a plan giving them a strategy and A. Go Go do. Yeah. It's a I mean. It's easier said than done to find them. You got any tips for them before we finish this. Finding good people. A lot of it is meeting them where they are. So you know you know pre pandemic? It was going to security conferences. Now it's really paying attention to online participation. How people are sharing in presenting research that they might be doing how they are frankly even interacting with others, or are they being helpful or they being a negative influence? It's just you know, are they? The kind of people that you WanNa work with, so you go and find those environments where people are being active today. You pay attention you listen. You'll learn you. Then decide to have some discussions, and that can really help you build a nucleus around which to find more people and more people and more people find that initial core. Yeah and that's like Kirsten Brazier. who was on the show earlier this week? Talks about like just reaching out to others in in the in the in the community in the Infosec community, and that seems like that's a big part of it. Like what she had to say about mentoring others, that's that's the kind of person that you wanna work with someone who's actively trying to help others. Yeah, absolutely. Well everybody in our sub. Reddit actively helps each other by submitting stories and also voting on others to make sure we all know what's important to the rest of us. You can do the same daily Tech. News show at DOT, ready dot com all right. Let's take a look the mailbag. Shall We oh? Let's got mon a wrote in and said it was so great. Listening to Seth said Rosenblatt was our guest yesterday. Thanks for an excellent security week thus far thank you got to mountain. Says since Seth brought up the topic of insecure WIFI routers, I thought I would share a recent study from the frown Haufer Institute where they tested one hundred twenty seven home routers from various popular brands, and every single one of them had known security flaws. He links to zd net article about this study which will have on our show nuts got says I'm starting to feel like. We should all be treating our routers the same way we do phones and laptops and upgrade them every three to four years on average. Yeah, which probably keeping the phones longer. At this point. Time upgrading the. New. Spells router subscriptions. Hey shot patrons that our master and grandmaster levels including at Jeff wilks Sonia vining and Rouge Shawn Brantley also. Thanks so much to our guest today Mike Johnson and Allan Alford Mike. Let folks know where they can keep up with what you do. Lewington is actually where I can hang out so find me on link in I'm reasonably prolific. That was where Alan, and I met way back in the day, just chattering at each other on Lincoln so just look for Mike Johnson security on Lincoln and you'll find me. Very, Cool Alford folks, we can keep up with your work. Same story linked in. It is as my friends say I'm very promiscuous on Lincoln. Better than me I. check it like once every six months and I miss things all the time so. Good tips! Thanks to Justin Robert Young as well. He is our Thursday or regular a fun security week. Good to have you on today, Justin, what are you doing off of the show? Well? Of course, my political podcast politics politics politics is here for you. Thank you to everybody from the D. family that the joined in on our patriotic take politics seriously dot. com just crossed thousand Patriot milestone. Milestone that was very very very cool and I appreciate everybody here who has followed me there and did a little bit of a tech overlapping with politics story on the episode that was released yesterday, July eighth about how the political platforms which are normally a contentious part of a convention are now going to be held online, and why I believe that might create the largest dumpster fire in internet history. Go check it out. Folks, politics, politics, politics, com, and if you're enjoying security week, but maybe you wondered like. Why are you doing this? What gave you the idea?
