"Mike? Well, he did say that there is a level which he'd be concerned. It'll be interesting to see how fast market rates adjust. Once we get the numbers from March in terms of the inflation data, because March and April, the two worst month and so we just mathematically we're going to get a big rise and if commodity prices keep going up It's gonna be some tough headline numbers. So do they blink. That's going to be a real test for the Fed just to take the opportunity to taste the next show with Muhammed Al Arian of Bloomberg opinion. Lisa. The reason I bring this up, It's not just a one time up, who I know is watching and taking the opportunity to drag it out and draw out a little bit longer ahead of nine o'clock eastern time on Bloomberg TV. Actually, it's an important conversation about whether they would have adjusted this framework of the federal serve. If they have known what was about to happen with fiscal policy. What was about to happen with a monster vaccination rollout as well. Would we have seen this framework adjusted to the degree that it was at the end of last summer? If they knew what would happen at the start of 21. Fiscal policy is still happening, right because the $1.9 trillion stimulus plan a lot of people view is perhaps short term inflationary but not long term. Inflationary, the infrastructure spending how much does that shift their opinion? If at all? And that to me, I think is one of the key questions going forward, John just before we go. Mike your view on that, and I know it's a difficult one to answer the counterfactual. But what do you think of that? You think it's framework would have shifted that much if they'd known what the physical impulse would be in 2021. I don't think they would have changed it significantly because the idea is not so much how fast you get there, but how you get there, and that's what they're gonna be looking at. Mohammed Al Arian coming up a little bit like from Bloomberg TV. Lisa Roberts will drive you Into the nine o'clock hour and Bloomberg Radio will take you into the open and balance well on Bloomberg TV will catch up with Mohammed and we talk about this bond.

Podcasting IS Branding with Chris Hines
"So i want to hear what what you love about podcasting and when i say that i say it because i think for me i had to use my voice to find it and i. I like to say that. Because until when i started i didn't i was like i just need to. I wanted my reputation but in like talking about things and force myself to use my voice. I kind of found. There's this trend. Like i keep talking about these things because when you get out of your head and you're just you're forced to talk every week you start to come up with. This is what. I'm kind of pissed off about today. This is what i'm talking about. There's a trend and so by using it. I kind of found like what i want to be passionate about before you like when you started to get into podcasting or even just now like what is it about podcasting. That is really you up and made you kind of focus on that. I've always had a strong opinion. And i've never really been afraid to speak my mind like public. Speaking never frightened me. I can't remember one distinct moment in high school. It was kinda one of those lazy days where the class wasn't doing anything. And i i just went to the first class and i just started talking to everybody and asking people questions and it was like open forum where we will just have it as mass discussion. It was about basketball. But i was standing in front of the class talking to everybody. We're argued about sports. My professor is like easier going to be a comedian republic speaker. And i was like oh of non much to do that so i can't ignore it later on in college. Isos forced to take a public speaking class. And at the time. I still was speaking publicly yet but i wanted me take discourse and actually did it and i attended and everything and i loved it and has been one of the best things ever so they got me so deep into podcasting is it's a way arcane consistently like you say use my voice in share my thoughts opinions on different things. It's just it's freedom for me. This is frida. I love it. I could not imagine life without it now. You have a show called the personal branding. Playbook it's one of your shows you of a few and in that show you talk about building personal brands podcasting and more one of the episodes you talked about. Why podcasting is the future. And i want to be fully biased. 'cause i always hold my whole my punches back mike. Well you could also do a youtube. You can also do a blog for me. Podcasting is what's right. Let's talk about that a little bit like. Why is podcast future. Because i want to convince some people today to just get off their butts and like try man now is the time i keep trying to tell people time because five years ago when i started podcasting people looked at me crazy. My family literally asked me. Why are you talking to yourself in a closet awesome. It was crazy years ago. now it's mainstream. everybody either has a show or they know somebody with what so. Now's the perfect time to start with. Because they are so popular right so the main reason. Why park has it gives. A future is because of the networking aspect. This is probably the most underrated feature of hosting a show. When you're host of apart as you don't always have to do interviews. In fact i advise you don't always interviews but you get to connect with some amazing people and they teach you so much like i've learned a lot from having conversations with people there. Were all my show. We built amazing relationships and in those same people some of them come back on my show again like bestselling authors like millionaires they. I've learned so much from these people. It's like my own masterclass like so the networking aspect is like the top for me. Yeah i think it's the same for me. And it wasn't what i thought when i went into it when i went into it i was like i want to this so that i can create content and so that i can become known for something and i was like what when i started interviewing people in fact when i started show it was a solo show and thirty episodes only solo show but i got coaching. 'cause i was like i love podcasting but i want to do it. That guy so. I found someone that was doing it well. And it turned out that like adding interviews changed everything for me because the networking it opened up doors and now and i introduced myself to people that i really said of being a fan boy and saying hey i love what you do. Love your book and i can be like. Hey i actually like to get into your book and ask you some questions that got you know to really dive deeper on something and they love that and i love all. They love it authors. Love it because it's like you first of all you bought my book. I appreciate that. Oh you wanna talk to me of book. Oh for sure like very rarely. Do i reach out for an interview and a person is like no. I don't wanna do that like it's very tell people all the time like the best part of the is you get to network and then everybody you wanna talk to wants to talk to you now. You will have a few. that are like busy. Maybe later this year but most of them are going to say yes. It's very rare that they're like nah. I don't wanna talk to you at all. That's very rare. I'm curious about your opinion on getting people started. And how you get them to go. And then i'll give you mine. But how do you get people started. What's like your path step one-two-three if you had to give someone a sequence to follow to be. Oh may step one is to have a goal for your show to many podcasts star with no go there just like i kinda wanna to sponsor i would like to sellable or i just want host. Show wanna talk. Whatever your decision is. That's fine but you have to have one goal. Step two is to have a theme for your show because if you just talking about everything and it's which is up every week i'm not subscribing. I'm pretty sure every park has listeners. Like this you have certain shows that are for entertainment for a certain type entertainment. You have go shows that you go to for news. Maybe have educational shows. So you have to figure out what you're famous for show and number three is to really have a direction like are you gonna do. Seasons isn't going to be solo. The it up a bit a what's your style of producing your show so the first stages for me. It's always planning like plan i am. I forgot how the saying goes. Who said it. What is it a sharpened a knife for ninety nine times and cut once measure nine times and cut once there. It is so it's the same day Exactly i think my my stepdad. You say measure twice. Cut once so that you don't like yeah you can mess up the would you don't want you cut it right. You've got it wrong your script. I love that now. I'd say the same thing. Honestly when i get people on a call i offer you know by talking for twenty minutes for free. It's no problem. I can't teach you how to watch a whole show but at twenty minutes. I bet you will get you in the vicinity of what the show is going to be about. Because if i asked you just a few questions you are the one who knows not just your the realm you know the the category you wanna be in but you typically know what it is. It makes you different. You just haven't said it out loud enough times for to for you to hear yourself. So i think if i can give people there to where they have a sense of. This is what i want to talk about. Then the fires lit up inside of them. And if you can get the show somewhat named even then like then it's their baby and like they're off to the races and then from there like don't worry about the people getting it done better than than perfect and i'm like i have mixed feelings about that but for me. I'm more like getting it done to where you've recorded something and not distributed it not putting. It tunes that literally just record some things a couple episodes solo interview. Whatever records some things. You can get a sense of what this could be for you if i can get you there and just tell you. Those couple of things might help you with that. Then i think you're golden and once you've experienced it then you'll have the passion to want to learn the things that are harder usually stop people though. Yeah yeah man. Because you know it's funny coming from the basketball world it's normalized for athletes and players to invest in himself to get better like that's a normal thing. If i'm telling you i'm working on going to the olympics are higher three trainers and i have a nutritionist. You will look at me crazy and say oh. That's good do well but podcasters don't have this approach to podcasting yet. It is worrisome to me because the industry is becoming bigger and bigger and bigger and more money being poured into it. But if you're not a podcast you can't see any of those benefits is not gonna work so you have to invest in yourself as a host to get better at your craft like you wanna learn how to interview and be a great interview. You have to learn that you don't just wake up one day and you're amazing at it because you wished it on night. It doesn't work like that. So i think we need to make it normal for people to invest in themselves to become a better park.
Should You Rent Live Streaming Gear?
"On this episode. You will learn why you should consider renting livestreaming gear before you make that final purchase decision. So gem let's talk about renting livestreaming gear. Yeah i think a lot of times. We make the assumption that we have to buy this stuff. But if you're in business especially if you're a business owner you're in the business of live streaming. You actually have some options that the the hobbyist may be necessarily doesn't and that is you can lease equipment. You can rent equipment for a short period of time. I mean i have a friend that runs a video production company. He doesn't own any of his cameras. He goes and rents them whenever he gets a job for a client. Because one thing that happens with gear is this stuff gets upgraded all the time and so sometimes trying to keep up with the latest and the greatest goes into one of your favorite phrases. Yes and it's a gas gear acquisition syndrome and basically. It's the fact that you know when we buy a piece of equipment we then wanna keep buying because we see what other people have or what kind of they're using for their live streaming setup. Now to your point jim. I mean when you buy equipment you know. It's it's an asset appreciable asset. So it's like buying a car. For example you buy it and then it's gonna depreciate over time so for example if you bought that thousand dollar camera over time you know it's going to pretty much worthless it's going to be you've got time working against it and you also have the technology as well because technology changes extremely rapidly. You know it changes so quickly that that you know to the point where you buy something in like maybe in a month it's outdated because every about every year there's always something new coming out so this might be. You know a good reason why you should rent livestreaming gear so jim. Let's talk about just the various parts about renting equipment. I mean as you know. Yes people can go out and they can you know if they have. I think keating is like let's start with budget. I mean we rent. Why should somebody rent gear. I mean they definitely show up budget right. That's part of it absolutely. And i think and so. That's where renting right gives you that ability to you know it's like it's like a car taking a test drive you can try before you buy. I mean We're going to share some links a little bit later. Some of these places. You could rent Stuff for as little as three days. So you know be focused that you're going to actually you know you know 'cause how many times do we buy a new piece of equipment and then it sits there for a little bit before we start using it and so this kind of makes you think. Hey i if i if i'm serious about using this piece a year i'm actually going to you know. Take it out use it. Make sure it's it's doing what i think it can do or wanted to do. And so sometimes you're gonna find out that that's not what it is advertised that it would do isn't always what ends up being the case and it doesn't do what you were hoping for a one great example of this you know their cameras so when you're running a livestream you may want to use. Will you want to have a camera and a lot of people to start with the first option the webcam sorry the the built in webcam. And then when they're ready they're like hey i want another will just having. The webcam is not the only piece of equipment you need when you have for example if you're using a built in webcam you need a webcam you need lighting for example to then make that webcam look good and you know those webcams they can only do. So much so might be choppy because it's basically contingent on your computer so for example. If that's not good enough in your okay. I won't improve that. Well then i'm going to go to a webcam and actual external webcam extra webcams limitations. And then you go up another notch. If you're like hey want to. I want to be able to switch different things for example different cameras or i want to have different angles will a webcam can only do so much. Then you need to move into. Dsl are mirrorless camera and those then for example require more equipment to actually run the equipment. So it's it's a slippery slope once you start using different types of equipment. They're always going to be additional costs for example if you buy diesel our camera. Hey it's oh. I can just go buy one off the shelf. But here's the thing. It's not just about buying off the shelf. You then have to buy the right lens. Some of them include lenses which is great. But hey then we'll hey. How do i put this into my computer and that gets us into unietd capture card so as you can see it can quickly spiral out of control and so this is a really really really good reason why people need to consider renting livestreaming gear There's so much out there. And depending on what. Your setup is what your budget is you can easily go and drop immune if you wanted to buy just a basic camera. Six hundred dollars a camera. Two hundred dollars on a capture card to be able to plug the camera into your computer. So we're eight hundred dollars. Roughly right there Let's see what else you need. They need probably an audio interface or microphone. Sorry audio interface or mixer. So that's what one hundred one hundred fifty dollars till like five or six hundred dollars. That's really more bare minimum. So i think we're what that's probably around fifteen hundred sixteen hundred dollars right there and then. Hey i want improve my audio. I can go by mike for one hundred dollars but you know again then. I have to have a by the mike. Well then i have to have the armed. Attach it while the arm is another hundred. So you know you're at what That's that's over two thousand dollars right there. And that doesn't include the software so easily you've reached twenty five hundred three thousand dollars so some of the benefits obviously like to renting this gears. That will if you don't have the cash then. Maybe you rent a piece of equipment that you need. You know that you need and use it temporarily and you use it to film all of your videos at once and then you return the equipment versus. I dropped three thousand dollars. And then i have to actually spend the time learning it in also making sure that it works how i needed to work. You know. there's a whole process at it right job. Oh absolutely and then the other thing you may start to find an and it was funny. I was A guy guys said this the other day it's like if you have one dollar lighting and thousand dollar camera you've basic aren't going to have a one dollar camera because you didn't take into consideration the other stuff that you need to make that camera work right. You know. I mean sometimes like we have people that wanna have green screens. And they don't have the lighting and so they're backdrop actually looks worse than if they just had a plane wall behind them. And so you know reading this stuff can really give you a feel for like. Is this really. What's going to move the needle for me. I mean you know. We've always talked about getting better one percent of the time so this is a big deal when you kind of as you're when you when you've got gas you really gotta sometimes take a step back and really say. Is this really going to help my business. What's the plan behind it. And so you know and and and you may find that your space that you're live streaming from isn't really a set up in a way to properly use that gear right if you've got you know like i'm bringing in a second camera but now when you look at the lighting it's like oh my backdrop looks horrible. My walls not you know so maybe you want to improve the status of your studio before you go one by year but then even renting the gear will let you say oh. This isn't going to work quite like. I thought you know. Cut your. it really is a way to kind of. Cut your losses temporarily until you're ready to take that next step and there are a couple of different approaches. You can take this as i mentioned earlier. If you're you know if you're a type a person you're a planner and you've got everything ready like you know for example what your videos are going to film are and you've got them scripted out. It would make sense if you don't have all the equipment go and go to a rental place and we'll share some of those here and few minutes but go to a place that you can rent equipment from and tell them. Hey you know what this is. What i'm looking to do for the most part. They're going to know their stuff inside now and they're going to be able to also sort of give you a bit of a consultation they're gonna be able to recommend what might pair well

Zconomy: How Gen Z Will Change the Future of Business with Jason Dorsey
"Jason. Save up to fire nation and share. Something interesting about yourself that most people don't know sure what's up. Fire nation thrilled to be here with you. Huge fan fire nation. Everything about something that most people don't know about me is. I wrote my first book when i was eighteen years old and it was so successful. I ended up sleeping on the floor of a garage apartment with five thousand books that i had printed thinking somebody was going to buy them instead. They were furniture. So a bed of books means you're not selling as many books as you want to fire nation but guess what jason's grown he's matured and right. Now he's rocking z. Konami which is all about generation z. And how gen z is going to change the future of business. So i kind of want to start a few steps back jason. Because i'm just curious like how does one get into studying generations wide. Did that interest you. And why did you get into it. Yeah share well that. I book that i wrote when i was eighteen at ended up not selling it first and then becoming a real big bestseller and i started speaking all around the world and i ended up on sixty minutes and i was on. That show is all about millennials. And i'd written a bunch of books and started a company and everything was going great but after that show i started speaking all these corporate executives who are now our primary clients but i was speaking all these exact and he would say such terrible things about millennials and i am a millennial pretty fended lazier titled your pants or fall off. You live with your mom and all this stuff. And i'm like well. No actually. I have my own house in our own office building in my parents worked for me and my pants are on very snugly. Thank you very much. And so so after that i remembered Clear as day. I was in this boardroom. Big public company and the ceo had said Some things about millennial employees. That i just i didn't fully believe and i'd spoken about half a million millennials at that time and so i asked him because i didn't know any better. Now i serve on lots of corporate boards. You know one of the couples on sold for eleven billion dollars. I live in this world now. But back then i didn't i didn't i didn't know and it was really a set up for success so i asked him i said is there any way i can see your data about millennials because you say the turnovers hiring. They're not as engaged and on and on i. I love to understand better. So i can conceptualize it and maybe help also for so. There are a lecture or whatever so they sent the data to me. And the data didn't match with the ceo had just said in the boardroom which basically never happened. Ceo's don't go off the cuff in front of their boards prickly a private publicly-held company like that. So i asked my wife who has a phd. I said denise you know this is. The strangest thing was just in this room with this pretty famous. Ceo they said all these things with great conviction then. I looked at the data and the data doesn't match what they just said. I said what do you think we should do. And she looked at me and she says we start a research for. She's up because if they don't even know their own data if we can help them to understand their data make better decisions and we can really great copy and help lots of peoplesoft. Lots of challenges and so. That's how we got into this thirteen years ago. We founded the center for generational kinetics. We lead research all around the world for many of the biggest brands in the world. And all about separating generational myth from truth through data so leaders can make great decisions whether you're a startup or venture capital or your bootstrapping yet or you're in a big public company getting accurate data and being able to make decisions based on that increases the likelihood of success de risk strategies. That you're looking at drives innovation and so forth and we found that generations in particular or one area where there was just so much myth and so much misinformation and if we gave people great information that it could take action and that was incredibly exciting. We've had seven hundred clients since then which is pretty wild and done studies all around the world and just love it absolutely it now. Your ceo is just flat out wrong when it came to millennials and you had the data to back it up. Did you ever go back to him. And just be like joe burrow. Check us out. you're wrong in also my pants. They're pretty snug. Check them out. I know that was a quiet. But i really do credit him and i if it wasn't such a negative story i would say what company is because it's really big famous company but But no but. I do believe that he something that we saw frequently. Which is the idea that generations older generations. Think of millennials through the lens of their kids or their grandkids and so that that becomes a proxy for the whole generation. And in fact when we wrote the economy book new book. What we found is the same thing was happening again and there was all this misinformation and it just wasn't true and that's why we spent less two years right in the book is because we've got to clear this up because when people have the wrong impression about an entire generation it leads to so many problems for everybody. Everybody loses so no. I never never corrected him on it. But i do give him credit for sparking the idea. I'm glad that you do give them credit for sparking that idea because sometimes fire nation. Is those things you just like you know. I'm not just quite sure about that. Let me look into it. They can really uncover some great opportunities in one thing. That i think is a huge problem in this world in general and especially when you're talking about generations is just regurgitation. You'll hear one person on one talk. Show say one thing. And then you'll regurgitate it. And then somebody else regurgitates regurgitation and like seven layers down. You're like how'd you hear that. They're like oh. I don't really know like somebody just mentioned it and like now you're speaking it like it's the truth and it's just regurgitation of what you know is something that has no data to back it up. So what most people get wrong jason when it comes to generations break that down for us shared. There's a few things that jump out. The first is this belief. Generations are a box or stereotype and that is absolutely not true. We're generational researchers. This is what we do more than sixty five generational studies and what we see is generations are not a box but what they really are powerful clues and as long as we used them as clues and only clues to dry faster connection trust and influence in create all kinds of positive outcomes. We don't wanna put people in boxes. We wanna use this as clues. So we can figure out how to better lead market sell collaborate innovate and so forth. And when you sort of at that level people seem to really embrace it because it just gives them another lens to better connect. So i think the first is people think. Generations are boxes or stereotypes. And they're not in fact. Our clues are driven by math. We look for what's called predictability by scenario so that's the first thing that people i think it wrong. The second is this idea that generations are the same around the world. Now one of the things that we've uncovered repeatedly in our work. We publish all this on our website. Is that generations vary by geography so for example in the us will see differences between urban and rural within the same generation. And that i work a lot outside the us and we'll see differences. Has we travel around the world and that's important because if you're a global company or frankly a global brand fire nation is you want to make sure that you really representing each of the different geographies. And what makes them different now. One cool thing that we've uncovered and we talk a lot about this bunches. Economy is the most consistent generation the world. now that doesn't mean exactly the same but the most similar generation the world is now gen z. Gnc's about twenty three twenty four years old. The oldest and the reason the most similar is because of cheap mobile technology so if you live in different countries around the world you might even get your phone for free as long as you use it for payment. Think about it started using a text. Payer sort of like a mobile credit card in different parts of the world and because we've driven the cost of a mobile down solo basically two zero in many places now. All the sudden young people around the world are having access to entertainment news information dating banking on and on and on and as a result of that. We're seeing a lot more similarities. As i travel all around the world the younger you get but interestingly the older you get even to gen xer baby boomers from a different planet as you travel around the world. So that's something people get wrong. And then the last thing that i think people get wrong. And is they have to deal with a bunch. Is people confuse life. Stage or age with generation. So for example jen's is now twenty four but when we do studies and ask people how do you think the average millennial is they'll say twenty five as if we didn't keep getting older you never talking about millennials for fifteen years. Say there they're now forty. I think that's a board it because you stay in the saying generation but you pass through different life stages and frequently people confuse the two and it's very important to understand the difference because if you're trying to market or employer build a business that targets different groups generations gives you all these clues but we got to distinguish between the generation which travels up right at ages up baby boomers for teenagers versus life. Stage for example high school or college which are still pretty similar ages as they have been for the last four years and so knowing. The difference helps you to understand that. Yes really interesting. How people always confuse age with generations. And how that all goes. I mean you know. I was just talking to a friend the other day literally. He's in his late thirties. I'm in my late thirties. And he's just going off and riffing about jenner. How millennials or just entitled and all this stuff and it looks like you know where millennials. He's like oh no. I'm definitely not a millennial mike. Well we're we're like the oldest millennials millennials. And he's like well. I need to look at that. And so it was funny. He came back. We know there's actually a lot of great things about millennials and he's now like listing off all the good things because he now is identifying himself as a millennial so it's really interesting fire nation and yes. We do get older. That is what happens to all generations and all human beings foreshore. And we're gonna die something. I'm pretty excited about as soon as we get back from our break which is about how generational work is actually going to solve challenges for both entrepreneurs that's you fire nation and companies as well as soon as we get back think is the best platform to create market and sell your own online courses in.

We are back. And as i kind of teased before the break. I wanna get into. How generational work console challenges for fire nation. That's for us entrepreneurs but companies as well. Sure that with us. Sure one of the things. That also is not obvious as i'm venture partner at a venture capital firm and serve on lots of start up boards. It's an extremely passionate about and what we're seeing much of the opportunity being created today has a generational trend or thesis. It's the adoption of new technology new solutions or bringing a different way to look at old problems and when that happens that's where both change and frustration and challenge and frankly companies go out of business but it's also wear new opportunities are created so i'm speaking with entrepreneurs and working with entrepreneurs were trying to look at what are millennials and particularly gen z. Doing right now that you might want to be able to build a business around or leverage as their pine power influence increases so for the first time what we're seeing is technology trends are rippling from the youngest to the oldest and that's a huge shift. It used to be from the oldest more affluent down to the youngest. But now we're seeing younger. People are actually driving tech adoption up to the older but the key as an entrepreneur mississippi that we coach entrepreneurs about is being able to sort of step out of your generation and look at it through the lens of another generation. it's what we call generational contexts. One of the best ways to do that is actually bring members of that generation into the conversation. I can't tell you how many times i'm speaking at places. And they're asking me all these questions about millennials or gen z and. I'm like well. Why don't we invite some of them to the conversation. Let's talk to them. Uh let's actually talk with them. See what they say. Say get and so. I think when you look at bringing generational diversity into the workplace into innovation. You can solve all kinds of interesting challenges. I'll give example right now. What we're seeing is the gen z and even younger millennials. I talk about both of these in this economy book. They want a different on boarding experience. Obviously we're in this time of covert and all these changes but even before that what we saw is that the youngest generation wants to be on once on boarding to be by text message. Which sounds i know a little bit wild but there are companies. Do all of their on boarding through text message so you get semes- before you Short for your first day in alaska you just give you a simple example. This is in the book from coming called on border. When you they'll send a text message and it'll say what's your favorite snack three o'clock when your energy starts to go down. Do you have a favorite sports team are causing all this sort of stuff and the is when you show up for your first day. Or they'll even now senator gift baskets to your house. They'll have all your favorite snacks ready for you on your show up because they already know because you put in your text message or the. Have your favorite sports team. Or they'll find the best place that you wanna go eat or have that food delivered so they're engaging you by text message in a process that generally used to be in person and frankly pretty terrible at most companies. There's another company that worked in with again. This is generational trend. They figured out how to pay all employees fifty percent of their wages every day at no cost. They're called instant and what they did. Is they basically said you get a text message or message on your phone after your shift. And it says hey. Would you like half your money today. Yes or no. If you click s you get your money. Will all the sudden now you have. An entire generation is growing so fast that thinks they should always be able to get half their paycheck. Every day will imagine how that changes so many other things and all the sudden other generations. What do they say well. This text messaging on boarding thing is pretty cool. You mean i can get paid every day. That's pretty awesome. I think i want that. To and all the sudden the generational trends creates huge businesses. And those are the types of things were seeing you know so much. Innovation is driven by other generations. This is the key they don't even think it's new or different when we interview them. They think you've always been able to do on boarding by text message because they never got on onboard before there was text messaging or if they've only worked at a place that gave them the ability to get paid every day. That's how they think everybody gets paid. And you know older generations. So i work with the frequently. Get defensive and they're like you know. The young generations are trying to change everything. And i'm like no. They're not this is just all they've ever known they don't know any differently. Change to them is actually doing what you're proposing and it's not about one being right or wrong. It's going we can. We can leverage us. We can adopt this and all the sudden on boardings better retention is higher engagement is higher in these types of things and you see it on the marketing side for those fire nation members who are really growing their businesses and they're more than sales marketing. Same exact deal and the idea is just recognizing this you're creating so much opportunity. We see this particularly with social media. We see this with podcast such as yours that this is a great way to engage younger generations who then index for talking about these things and driving awareness in referrals and excitement fire nation. So many things to take away here. One of my favorite things jayson broke down was specifically tech trends are rippling from the youngest. To the oldest. Like think about that shift. Think about that change. How the ripples actually going from the youngest to the oldest now which is a complete flip from how it used to be back in the day and one thing. I wanna really dial in on just because i'm personally curious and i think fire nation is to is this the up and coming generation now. Let's talk about generation z. Like who is generation z. And what do we need to know about them. Yeah absolutely so gen z. The key thing is that they're already twenty three or twenty four years old. So that's a good starting point and what we uncovered in our research and we publish. This is economy. Book is at gen. Z is the key thing we got all these research firms around the world to change their birth years. Gen z does not remember nine eleven and that is a huge deal because it's the biggest event for the millennial generation we call generation defining moment. But jesse doesn't remember it at all. They learned about it in school or heard about it from a parent or they watched the video on youtube. But it's not something they experienced and they're now twenty three twenty four years old so a huge event of the generation before they don't remember in fact they're they're covid nineteen is essentially their defining moment. This pandemic is the generation defining moment that they're gonna take with them and we talk about this a lot. So one thing is they. Don't remember kievan of a previous generation and the other is there. Cuban is happening right now. But what i think you're entrepreneurs will find super interesting is that we've been doing this. Study for the last five years called state of gen z and. It's our big study released every year. And what we've uncovered and we've seen it for five years in a row now is gen. Z is more practical or frugal with their money than previous generations. And this is shocking and when we dig into it what we find out is that gen z came of age around the great recession. And what do i mean by that. Their speakers are experts. Like you talked about earlier. This regurgitation people running around saying oh gen z struggled during the great recession in the workforce they were twelve and were not working right but instead what they did is. They saw their parents struggle. They heard their parents struggle. They know people lost their houses. They saw millennials drowning in student loan. Debt having back home a mom and dad and you put all that together and what you see is. They're very conservative or practical with their money. As a result they're driving double digit growth at stores. They like couponing they wanna know. They got a good deal. They want things to be a bargain. They want them to last a long time really have utility and what we see. The example. i'd like to give is a gen zero sixteen years old. We'll have a birthday party. They'll get fifty dollars. They're all excited it away. And then they'll go to their mom or their dad and say hey. Can i have fifty dollars. Wanna go buy something. Mom or dad will say but you just got fifty dollars. And they'll say oh. No that's my money your money. It's overseeing that so if you're trying to market to them you've got to understand their practicality with money we also see the gen z when we do values based research. What we find is for the last four years Their top concern was climate change. Or would they would call climate crisis in their own words. And so that's been the top that they've been looking for brand alignment and for entrepreneurs to get behind and so forth however in the last six months we are new study. Social justice has leapfrog. Climate changes their top issue. And it's significantly more now so all the sudden as you see the generation respond to events around them. You can sort of see how they're shaped so if you wanna make sure in line with their values you gotta know what their values are going. Even deeper on the employment side is people look to hire them. Gen z no is looking for stability. This one's this one's tougher for entrepreneurs. So i want to explain it. They're looking for stability in an employer. What do i mean by that. Gen z saw these layoffs. I heard the layoff. Seen millennials struggle and as a result they're looking for an employer that they view as stable. So it's interesting because they tend to automatically defined stability by being a big company. So they'll say. I want to work for a big company will say why and they well because they're stable and the truth is you and i both know that. Just because you're big company does not at all mean that you're stable and just because you're a small business doesn't mean that you're not stable so it's important that you message to them. We also found in our research is gen. Z is very much interested in benefits which is shocking given their age in fact two years ago. Twelve percent of gen z was already saving for retirement. Wow and yeah. That's crazy right and many of them already have an emergency savings account. These are eighteen year olds. That are taking up their phones showing us emergency savings accounts and it. Just it's such a different generation. I think the key here. Mrs so important for all the marketers who are listening our nation is at gen. Z is not millennials. Two point oh they are not millennials. Just more extreme. That's total bunk. People say that it is not true. Jesse is a completely different generation raised by different set of parents who has come of age only knowing social media it has always existed for them. That's why they trusted so much at the same time. They're more diverse than any previous generation. Different set of values different purchasing pathways. And now the key is they over index on influence because of how they use digital media and already twenty four years old fastest growing generation in the workforce today on a percentage basis. And they're gonna be the most important consumers to get right over the next ten to fifteen years. One thing that i assume and please correct me if i'm wrong. Because it's just an assumption but generation x. And millennials like this is like. I'm speaking of my generation's here that i cut kind of overlap. Both pretty closely. It's we came to like being seventeen eighteen years old and it came to money in debt. Just kind of close our eyes and kind of believed the rhetoric of. Hey you just have to go to college and it's going to be expensive and you're going to get college dad and that's okay and you're just going to be a paid off at some point in the future and now like millennials and gen xers just hammered with this dead. They can't payoff ten twenty even sometimes thirty years later because it was just brutal with the mountains of debt that people kind of blindly get into it. Seems from what you're saying. Generations not gonna kind of take that same approach in just blindly. Sign away their lives to this debt of secondary education in colleges and universities in the such. Is that true. Wow that is such an insightful. I mean you you are super pro do so yes. That is actually true What's interesting is when we studied student. Loan debt with millennials in particular. That's what we call an economic anchor. So what it's causing. It's actually causing millennials. Now this is wild to delay marriage kids and buying a home because of student loan debt and that has massive ramifications on all parts of the economy to everything from financial services whether or not. You're buying life insurance. You know the the homebuilding recovery like on and on we could keep going to income households. There's just there's so many things that are impact even ultimately the ability to take care of your parents later on so what we saw. Was that large student loans at delayed major life commitments which we which is what's happened as a result And by the way gen z will tell you they're not sure that if spending a whole bunch of money and college actually pays off his it remains to be seen right now for millennials. We were told. I'm a millennial. We were told getting the best college at an. Just get debt. And will all be worth it and then for a lot of it wasn't on the flipside. Gen z in our new. Study in this in this economy book because it's important to understand how thing about education gen z is trying to graduate from college with as little as possible ice which is super cold. They're also saying that they're looking. They're very interested in the employability of their career. So so if they go and they pursue a certain path. Am i going to be able to get a job in that path. Now by the way kobe. Nineteen has been a massive massive. You know challenge for that because there are people that were three or four years into college university you know. Maybe they're going to study retail merchandising. Well aren't hiring never hired for that role again or they studied. You know oil and gas and those aren't hiring whatever it is so all the sudden people who already had you know pretty heavy commitment are now realizing that that path isn't there for them but we are single. Gen z particularly during this experience. Right now is they're saying. Hey i want to make sure. I'm getting value for my education and raven seeing well if it's going to be online only i'd rather go to a community college or state school or somewhere else. Get some credits. And then i'll figure out. If i want to go back into the future maybe take a year off and then come back and so forth so there definitely much more conservative with debt when it comes to college university and by the way the other people who are more conservative are their parents boomers had to cosign on all those millennial loans just. That's my mom about it right. And that as a result for many millennials it was tough for them to pay it off on the flipside. Gen-x is going well. I don't know if it's worth it gen x. Gen z kids. You will not end up. Like those millennials so the that's also being weighed into the conversation now is college university worth it and then you add the layer of kobe. Nineteen is it worth it if it's nontraditional experience and you know i don't know the answer to that but it is something we're observing and now this is where it gets really interesting. So the oldest members of gen z. Those that are about eighteen to twenty four. They're bearing the brunt of this. Pandemic what i mean by that is in our latest study. That group was most likely more than any other generation to lose their job. Have a decrease in pay or have a shift in responsibilities meaning. They had to assume a job that they didn't sign up for where it gets interesting though is younger so my daughter is nine years old. Her name is russia Sushi is in fourth grade right now. She heard this is in the book in third grade. Her last end of the year project. Which i didn't know anything about Was she went and built a presentation. She built all and google sides. She built it all in spanish. She had animation. She presented it. She recorded it and then she uploaded to classroom and she thought that was completely normal. She's nine and then of course. You saw one of my powerpoint slides. He's not very good. So i say that because the younger members of gen z. This is the real twist here. They might end up turning this pandemic into a positive. Because they're going to learn a whole different way to learn to collaborate they're going to get the benefit of the older part of the generation struggling. So they can learn from them. All of this stuff largely will be resolved in terms. Of least what normal looks like in the future and so they're gonna get the benefit of all of that the closer you are to those transition years of eighteen to twenty four the worse is but the further away the more benefit could end up being you so it's pretty interesting that within the same generation you can have two very different experiences and by the way this is what happened. To millennials millennials like me who crashed into the great recession and then the millennials who came afterwards who benefited from a very robust economy. So even within the same generation you can see pretty significant differences. I mean fire nation. I really hope you're enjoying this contest. Much as i am. Because i'm seeing the application to the real world and that's so important because we're entrepreneurs in the real world. We own businesses and companies in the real world in this stuff makes a massive impact so jason of everything that you shared today. What's the one key takeaway that you really wanna make. Sure fire nation gets from all of this awesome stuff above generational impact and the generational studies. That you've done and then share how we can even learn more about it through you and any call to action. You might have for fire. Nation is time to share. Yeah absolutely so the number. One thing that i would share. You know as an entrepreneur myself now for twenty four years is i would do. It's called a generational snapshot and what that means is you create essentially a pie chart representing the different generations. Either of your customers or of your employees or team members or ideally of both. Because what you'll often find is that there's more generations and you suspect it and it will help you to shape your messaging your leadership in your marketing to better fit them and going a bit further if you don't see enough of the next generation coming in particular on the customer side that's definitely a yellow flag that you need to pay attention and make sure that your dappling for the next generation because they will be the ones that drive growth. So that's the best easiest how to that will cost you zero dollars that a promise will make you money. Which are the type of things i'm all about. And if you want a whole bunch more in terms of how to actually recruit and retain motivate and so forth across generations or market and sell. You can definitely check out the new book. It's called economy. How gen z will change the future business and what to do about it. We do talk about all four generations and just packed with how to in case studies and all kinds of cool stuff and we'll put together a special promo for fire nation. New it be on my website.

Is Sugar Bad For You?
"Without further ado, I'm going to bring in our guest today. She is our registered Dietitian joining us on the show again is Debbie James how're you doing debbie I am grand. Thank you very much. All right. Good. Thanks for joining us on the phone here. So I guess right off the bat will jump into it. The big one that people ask is sugar bad for you. Is it bad? Loaded question. I like to give you the loaded one's. GonNa break it down. I'm going to say sugar naturally present in foods is usually fine but the over consumption of added sugar that linked to cardiovascular disease and obesity and cholesterol of not to mention inflammation oxidative stress. So those types of conditions are what added sugar is related to as far as the research goes Particularly, you know pretty vascular disease and it's really oftentimes the higher percentage of calories from added sugar. It's not just that you had them at how much that you had or that the sweet and beverages like seven servings or more per week. That are linked with the mortality from cardiovascular disease. So it matters when we're talking about what kind of sugar and how much right. So you could say excess sugar is bad for you. Can you say that we're yeah, you can say that but natural sugar. So I don't think that there are too many people that have just had an overabundance of raw fruit. that. Were hard pressed because you're getting the antioxidants and you're getting fiber and you're you get all those other things that are beneficial right? Right. The kind of bounce it out and it's probably hard to eat so much food that you would like just way go in excess of your sugar needs. It is so low in calories. Oh my gosh. I went to get like a smoothie. One of the you know maybe places in it a sixteen ounce smoothie had three hundred, sixty calories mike well, definitely not going to be sitting down eating eight apple. You know if I were to just turn to some raw fruit and sit down and chew, it's Never I. It's just not gonna add up that. Much right. Right. So are there are there are there different types of sugars though I there's like the wall stuff you get out of fruits and vegetables but is there you know like what's the additive the different ones? Are there different types early, those are those are like big picture group, their sugars I'm going to narrow it down and get a little. So chemically speaking sugar is either just one like ring of carbohydrate called a Amano ride or sugar also refers to some are two of linked together called a Diet Thac. Hope I hope our listeners at home or taking notes. Okay. We're be a quiz at the end for sure. It only makes little difference because let's say that that glucose blood sugar okay. Brick brick toast is fruit. Sugar. But sucrose table sugar the white crystalline stuff on your table it made of Glucose and fructose. The competent. Okay. That's one of the double sugars right So the reason that makes a difference. Is that the single sugars? They get a short they just they don't need to be broken down or anything. Whereas if you eat a longer sugar, we still call him simple sugar in the Diet but if you need a longer sugar or if you eat a complex carbohydrate like dark from rice or pasta corn potatoes. Your system needs to take time to break that down into its individual tiniest a small little piece to get gored and guess what? That's a sugar interesting. Okay. So because you got because it all right interesting. It's almost like how you just broke down sugar. It took a little longer. But it wasn't as simple to digest as but it was but it did make sense in the end. Okay. That's interesting. So like the if it's the combination, it almost like your body has to pull that apart and then digested. So it's like all right we gotta we gotta take this bar before we can use it. If. It's already we're calling it a sugar whether it's from honey or maple syrup or whatever it like a fraction leg. It is so so so fat birth is you had a bowl of cereal and you're gonNA break down that brand flake that takes a lot longer. Right, okay. It turns it turns to blood sugar even if there's no sugar in it. I don't know if that. Hydrate confused. That's true though you can look at your label of I have some Rice Pilau and it says zero grams of sugar. But I know that it will raise my blood sugar. Two cups of it. You know. Because your body breaks it down digestion. You've got them in time, and then like I said, you clean it down to its very smallest. Piece Particle and Adore Bet and that you're. Going Okay So are there with when it comes to sugars? Are there actually could you deem some sugars healthy for you? Or is it just? are between the different sugars are some more healthy for you than others Okay well, we mentioned natural sugar I think I should Kinda sorta define what what added sugar is. Okay. So if you think of added sugar as something as an ingredient that that's in food in the processing and preparation or added to the food at the table that's really meant as as a sweetener sweetener. Okay. The things that things on the label you might see they could be dextrose could be brown sugar it could be powdered sugar, corn syrup it could be invert sugar lactose, all these names. that. Are within the food those are added but let's say you're looking at fruited yogurt and you feed that there's milk and there's strawberries and boo, there are going to be some grams of sugar. Those are the natural one from the milk and the strawberry, but there may also be some of these other dextrose and. added. In addition to really didn't. Make it a more pleasurable eating experience or drinking experience off to make it. Yeah. To make you crave it. Provides structure and baked good. They, they actually have a a role to play and architecture if you will. I was just thinking been. Yes. I was GONNA use that word. That's funny. Yeah. That's interesting So going. So that's the definition but going back to your question are some like better for you than others are considered healthy. So if you think of natural sugars, they're better for you consumed in their original food source but just bruder milk because of the other nutrition you get with them like I mentioned, fiber calcium, protein, vitamin, C, or D. And you could even say, okay well, what about more purified natural sources like honey or maple syrup are Garvey there's still condiments but. let's say honey it's known to have antimicrobial antioxidant properties and it's a natural cough remedy though if I was going to put them sweetener mit then. I might preference choose honey. Okay. So that's okay that kind of I think touches on like whether. Natural, Rossouw, better for you. But how how much sugar are we talking about that? You should have on a daily basis? What how much should be in your daily Diet? In. General. Okay their recommendation, Perm, lots of different. You know organizations so and and it's because we have found that American adults and children. We consume more than fifty percent of our calories from added sugars and mostly it's from sweetened beverages followed by credited desserts and baked good categories so. I thought. That percents champion many. Oh I it's taking the place of nutrition food right. Did you. Did you say fifteen percent or fifty percent. Keen fifteen. Okay. The first time I heard fifty and I was just like what? Okay fifteen still high feel high. Yeah Okay I'm glad we clarify that. Okay. Continue to help the another would be extraordinary. So the Institute of Medicine, they recommend that added sugar take up less than twenty five percent or a quarter of your total calorie rich like you know it's up there the American Heart Association recommends limiting your added sugar. They offer it a different way. They do it less than a hundred calories per day for women. So that's about sixty spoon or a hundred and fifty calories a day for men, which is about ninety burns. Yet the World Health Organization they recently issued new guidelines stating that only five percent of a person to total daily calories should come from sugar

All right. Good. Thanks for joining us on the phone here. So I guess right off the bat will jump into it. The big one that people ask is sugar bad for you. Is it bad? Loaded question. I like to give you the loaded one's. GonNa break it down. I'm going to say sugar naturally present in foods is usually fine but the over consumption of added sugar that linked to cardiovascular disease and obesity and cholesterol of not to mention inflammation oxidative stress. So those types of conditions are what added sugar is related to as far as the research goes Particularly, you know pretty vascular disease and it's really oftentimes the higher percentage of calories from added sugar. It's not just that you had them at how much that you had or that the sweet and beverages like seven servings or more per week. That are linked with the mortality from cardiovascular disease. So it matters when we're talking about what kind of sugar and how much right. So you could say excess sugar is bad for you. Can you say that we're yeah, you can say that but natural sugar. So I don't think that there are too many people that have just had an overabundance of raw fruit. that. Were hard pressed because you're getting the antioxidants and you're getting fiber and you're you get all those other things that are beneficial right? Right. The kind of bounce it out and it's probably hard to eat so much food that you would like just way go in excess of your sugar needs. It is so low in calories. Oh my gosh. I went to get like a smoothie. One of the you know maybe places in it a sixteen ounce smoothie had three hundred, sixty calories mike well, definitely not going to be sitting down eating eight apple. You know if I were to just turn to some raw fruit and sit down and chew, it's Never I. It's just not gonna add up that. Much right. Right. So are there are there are there different types of sugars though I there's like the wall stuff you get out of fruits and vegetables but is there you know like what's the additive the different ones? Are there different types early, those are those are like big picture group, their sugars I'm going to narrow it down and get a little. So chemically speaking sugar is either just one like ring of carbohydrate called a Amano ride or sugar also refers to some are two of linked together called a Diet Thac. Hope I hope our listeners at home or taking notes. Okay. We're be a quiz at the end for sure. It only makes little difference because let's say that that glucose blood sugar okay. Brick brick toast is fruit. Sugar. But sucrose table sugar the white crystalline stuff on your table it made of Glucose and fructose. The competent. Okay. That's one of the double sugars right So the reason that makes a difference. Is that the single sugars? They get a short they just they don't need to be broken down or anything. Whereas if you eat a longer sugar, we still call him simple sugar in the Diet but if you need a longer sugar or if you eat a complex carbohydrate like dark from rice or pasta corn potatoes. Your system needs to take time to break that down into its individual tiniest a small little piece to get gored and guess what? That's a sugar interesting. Okay. So because you got because it all right interesting. It's almost like how you just broke down sugar. It took a little longer. But it wasn't as simple to digest as but it was but it did make sense in the end. Okay. That's interesting. So like the if it's the combination, it almost like your body has to pull that apart and then digested. So it's like all right we gotta we gotta take this bar before we can use it. If. It's already we're calling it a sugar whether it's from honey or maple syrup or whatever it like a fraction leg. It is so so so fat birth is you had a bowl of cereal and you're gonNA break down that brand flake that takes a lot longer.

In the meantime, they're blowing something up like George Floyd. When it turns out that the officers were arresting them. We're doing exactly what they were trained to do. All right, let's let our guests respond. And your your thoughts about various examples that you have seen that that may relate not just to the all the major issue of the disorder of the day, but in particular, too. Identity politics, Mike Well, look, I I think that what happened to George It was a tragedy, but I think what the caller was getting at was, for example, we know with The New York Times Change, Bennett. The editor of the editorial page, who was fired about a month and a half ago for publishing an op ed by sitting U. S Senator Tom Cotton, and the Op Ed was supporting the view of 58% of the American people. Which was to use the military to establish peace in our cities, Uh, for useful, just publishing the opinion of a sitting US senator with which the country agree he was fired. The editor of the Philadelphia Inquirer, who had been the editor for years was fired because he published an opinion saying that building's matter to AA and the list is very long, Andrew Solar, then who who is not a trump? Supporter who? His life strong very much. He was a gay man. He was. He was fired by the New York magazine for having the temerity question. Identity politics, uh, it and by the way, maybe you listeners would Benefit from hearing what identity politics is giving a precise definition, please. It's simply the division of the country into groups that are based on race, ethnicity, sex, sexual orientation, gender, even disability status. Anything that comforts a degree of victimhood on the members of these groups. These groups by the way, Jim Oftentimes artificially created by the bureaucracy. We can get into that. But anyway, dis victimhood then is used to claim that the demand respect to demand attention to demand Ah, reworked to demand compensatory justice. The man benefits, which means that didn't victimhood never get solved on the contrary, so there's no incentive to ever resolve your victim. But to overcome your victim would we wish to draw claims on respect for our ability to overcome? Our D'Cruz that lives those our way, But But not only do you have no incentive to solve your problems You want your grievances are going to be nursed forever. We're going to end up where we are today into some of 2020. We're where we have. People filled with grievances. Why? Because these grievances have been instilled into them to this day, we can go through that if you want. Teo was headed years. After I I agree with you, and I think that it's it's worth going through. And of course, why should you do away with these grievances? Why, What should you make things better when you would be taking away the livelihood of people who are making a pretty good living in the grievance industry? Exactly And let me just say so soon by last week, Um, three women who are charter members of the ultra left Nicole kind of Jones in The New York Times. 16 19 Project Alicia Guards Black last matter organization, Maria Teresa Kumar. The CEO of the group photo Latino got together and I watched their Ah during the exchange their their their talk. I transcribed most of it. Here is what Kumar says. About her group. I'm going to read to you quote. The challenge with the work that I do at both Latino is that I can't get people agitated because oftentimes they don't know the great harm that has happened on the structures that have been that we have been raised by Once you start understanding it and recognizing it the act and react in fight and run for office unquote. In other words, she say that she's taking immigrants from Latin America. Who were attracted here, like my family was by the conditions that the opportunity that this country tick, you know, Bastos and people, and she in her group is instilling in these immigrants. A sense of victimhood about these conditions in order for these conditions to be changed in order for capitalism to replace with the new economic system that is more that is that there were redistributes wealth. This is what's happening, and it's everywhere. And if you don't notice that's original remote book that blood to change America. This is it, Jim. This is the crux of it. Yes. So it certainly ought to be. I mean, the idea that people are so victimized if they're not even aware that they're being victimized it it has to be pointed out to him. You say you're happy. You're working your way up the ladder. No, you're not. Let me tell you how bad off you really have it. I mean, what? What a wonderful message. Actually, The thing is, though, that it has a burial Genesis. If Ariel pedigree, you know, this is something that Communist leaders from Antonio Gramsci in the twenties to Herbert Marcuse and the sixties. They all talked about this, Uh, Marcus. I'm happy to be happened to be writing it for the moment. Marquis. You used to say that that liberation depends on the consciousness of servitude. Uh, In other words, people have been told how big big to me. They are. In fact, Markos is sitting here in the sixties. Notice that American worker was just way too content way to convince it. He was never going to write up any road. The people find themselves in their commodities. They find their soul in the automobile. Hi, Fi said. Split level homes in kitchen equipment. In other words, These poor American moves that had given him a home with two happy to ever overthrow the system. So they had to be taught how unhappy they were. Oh, well, Thank you. Thank you for your public service. We do appreciate very much. All right. 186650, Jimbo, our number 186650546 to 6. Now that we're getting a better handle on this whole notion. Of identity politics now that the plot to change America Who is orchestrating the plot. And what tools are they using? Other than just telling people have discontented? They ought to be so it is that this is not there. No meetings in a basement in Cambridge messages. Brooklyn, New York or Madison, Wisconsin every Thursday night? No, but but everybody is reading the same text, the critical theory that Graham she and Makuza Horkheimer worked out in the 20th century is being thought today. As I told you toid me because I think people catch on better if you point out the figures, right? So the 22 of the three founders Of dark matter of the organization, not the slogan on the organization that the global Med words did a Marxist. That stain marks is in the have talked repeatedly how much they'll Angela Davis. How much in Angela Davis wrote the foreword for a book that was Window. One of these women Patrice Coolers is she and another one of the few minutes as teacher Garza. They're constantly saying we owe everything to you. We read all your stuff. Angela Davis was taught directly herself Brand eyes in the sixties by Herbert Marcuse. Because it taught her Makuza himself, which was taught at Freiburg University in the twenties by Martin Heidegger, who was a member of the Nazi party. You have a direct link between Martin hiding among high again. Remember the Nazi party held Makuza, Angela Davis in Patrice Coolers.
Don’t Lose the Thread. The Economy Is Experiencing an Epic Collapse of Demand.
"We segue from that's okay into a headline from The New York Times that says quote don't lose the thread the economy is experiencing an epic collapse of demands so how do we do you know kind of juxtaposed these two different ideas where we've got the stock market either after closing in on all time highs but also we have a tremendous amount of demand sucked out of the economy what what are your thoughts Mike well I mean I I kind of think of it as a bit of a field of dreams moment you know build it and they will combat that that's sort of the expectation that businesses are operating under right now and you're right we do have an epic collapse of demand but there is a very quantifiable and you know resist the obvious reasons that collapse in demand right a massive virus structure and that collapsed all sorts of demand for goods services products etcetera and now it's going away and so businesses investors are betting on the fact that that demand is about to rebound in a very very dramatic fashion but the authors write that Hey you know we we shouldn't ignore the fact that demand even right now isn't really
5 Boys and a Baby on the Way With Ariel Tyson
"Thank you so much for being here aerial. I'm just so excited to talk to you about Motherhood in life. Yeah thank you so much We actually moved to Montana a little over six years ago. Now a were from the southeast part of the USO very different a lot warmer or sure a lot warmer. We came here with two kids. And I was Thirty weeks pregnant with my third and since then we are going on. I guess four Montana kids and they are all boys so far but we do not know what number six is and I am doing about twelve weeks. So that's been fine. We started home schooling while here Montana. That's a whole other thing that we have Taken on along with me working. I work from home and yeah love that this'll be my fourth home birth and My first two were hospital births in North Carolina and then all of the Montana babies will be home births. Yeah how fun so I would love to ask you since you have five boys. Did you ever feel like you had like a little grieving when you didn't have girl? Yeah for sure and that is a question. I actually get a lot from people on instagram. That are too ashamed to say it. Themselves rate So I'll get little messages like I know I shouldn't feel this way and I can't talk to my friends about it because they would tell me. Just get over it and be happy for healthy baby but there is that Desire for that relationship with a daughter. both my husband and I have that and so we just have that desire so any time that I don't have one of my I wonder if it'll even be possible for us So yeah I think I. I definitely talk a lot about that on my instagram because I feel for families that have all of the same gender that get the comments when they might already be grieving and so I think it's extra a painful situation so someone who has all girls that might be really desiring for a boy and someone who has always too so yeah I definitely feel that and I think it's something that we need to be aware of and that it's okay to have a little bit of grieving and to go through that so because it's not even a question that you love your babies like of course serving a love your baby. Of course you're going to be excited about that me like you know the ad like shun you because you weren't a girl it's of course you carried that baby you gave life. You would die for that unlike you love themselves but there is that you know. I have a friend who just found out. She's pregnant with her fourth son and they were. She carried this one different and she was just totally thought. It was going to be girl and they found out it was a boy and she's like same like I feel bad like obviously I know I'm GonNa love my kid but she's like I want to be done having kids if I know I'm just going to keep having boys but if there's a chance of having a girl I wanNA keep trying yes like. I don't know yeah. Yeah I think I get even more defensive of the baby I think even more so just because we get so many comments from strangers but I yeah I can. I can definitely see how people feel that way. There's so many people who have extreme her mom over and they don't know how to express it and then there's some of us who are just. Hey you know this is hard but we're GONNA get through it but yeah exactly like your friend. It's just that kind of moment of I wonder if we can even have another another gender or not. Yeah but yeah so far like we have not try. Try in quote tried for a girl. We've been we've for our first pregnancy not for any gender you know. Everyone's like oh you're going to try for Mike. Well I mean we have babies. And they're great but we don't try for specific gender but yeah it would be awesome here. I wonder how true like any of that is because I've also heard like there's certain things you can do but ultimately it's not really in your control unless you're doing right. I have found that you can pre select the gender and stuff like that right my husband as one of four boys and he has one sister so we totally expected that. Yeah it definitely comes from them. My aunt uncle five boys and two girls so you never know
Sony Submits Patent For AI Which Suggests Microtransactions To Players When Stuck
"Sony has patented an AI tool to potentially suggest micro transactions great. I always have a hard time. Seeing that word micro transactions. Should you find yourself stuck in a game? Is that the only checking your host armor that you just can't say that word. It's because the word is so repulsive micro transactions. Sometimes it sounds like I'm saying Mike Mike. Well twins action so the reason that we had Gene deals had a meeting a brainstorm. One time to come up with a mascot and we wanted to have a little mascot for deals and one of them was a little man named Michael Transactions Micro Michael. We eventually landed on a much better example that. I hope you'll see before the end of the just tell people what it is can't just be. Mesa can now. It's pretty like no. That's better okay. So this thing is funny because it has a person in a drawing watching a TV. Tv's has by this on it but As part of the this is a schematic drawing this part of the patent application big fan of patent drawings. But the idea is actually. Sony has a lot of great ones. Actually if you're if you're playing a game and it recognizes that you're having an issue you you. Could you know it could give you something to help with that? That other players used and the way that this that they're patenting just because you pat and things that can make you money in this scenario doesn't mean it's going to happen by any such measure nation. Immediate they're saying that you can also pay like you know a small amount of money to get that thing so it's like maybe you unlock lake piece of equipment or an XP boost or something right there. That's just a big bomb by a big bomb. Which would work Zelda? We noticed you. It's taking a long time to level up like would you like to buy this. Xp Booster well. Assassin's creed had something like that kind of built into the game. So I imagine just be kind of. There's something you to they I that's like. Yeah exactly it'd be it's combined with the get good message. Yeah it feels like a slightly more insulting version of Nintendo's like don't you want to stop now so far you done with their like. Do you want to turn on the baby mode? We notice it others. You're right you're right. They already have that. I think genesis meaning like when they're like even playing for a while. Let's take a break now. That doesn't but that one that one there to take the the the thing now I get it all the time. It's like you can actually change the difficulty in. Yeah I know why. Teno used to be like if you hit this question mark into Luigia and then you're invincible. You wanted to fly on to the level. I always hate that because I'm like. I wish I could tell the game when I'm trying to do. I'm like it's not that I can't beat the level. I just can't beat it under the parameters that I decided I wanted to beat it at every Goumba Nintendo. Unlike you know you don't run on. Okay this isn't just your regular. Don't know what Ronald I also think that they use of a I in this patent stretch knowing nothing about it but it feels a little grandiose in suspect in my view like computers like well persons like a computer to do that. You just need to number of times. They died and say oh it's over ten. It reminds me of how like everything is just in the cloud now. It's just become like a I in well. It sounds like Sony's experimenting with like a Siri or Alexa. Type Voice activated help maybe to use employer funds. You're struggling beat. The boss like playstation. Beat THIS BOSS. Yeah. Ai Pops up and it's like well. Eighty percent of other players. Were able to be if they bought
Cowboys to move on without Jason Garrett
"Jason Garrett's time up as coach of the Dallas Cowboys Edward a reporting Jerry Stephen Jones have decided coach will not be part of the organization moving forward on Friday and paid Simmons on why this process lasted so long after the season to other Jerry and Stephen Jones have moved slowly out of respect for Jason Garrett you know they have a long history with him as a backup quarterback you to this is that coach a head coach's father was in the organization when Jerry bapa team as a scout and they finally concluded that phase of this process and that's going to end with Jason Garrett not being a part of the organization beyond his expiring contract and when exactly they make that announcement I thought sure what I've been told soon and that the next phase will have them moving into the process of interviewing candidates in the battle begin quickly after phase one is totally finished off yes was contract set to expire January fourteenth status with the team at issue since last February the cowboys didn't give a contract extension they missed the playoffs in twenty nineteen finish eight neighbor the four time in his tenure as coach Keyshawn Johnson on the job candidates and Jerry Jones himself he was on sports and we stand ready to make a decision on it there was the eight their long term in the obvious would clearly felt that their work you say while they waited till Thursday well the food that just won't really it just is so you kind of say okay take a deep breath we get back to the facilities we talk about a little bit we think about we pondered overnight we need or Thursday we meet on Tuesday we meet on Wednesday we have a conversation and we finally so you know women the best thing for us to do if not give the public what they looking for what they looking for me to do is be extremely mad and walk out of there on Sunday night if fire you on the tarmac so instead of doing that this call wait a couple days are you playing for the cowboys you're familiar with Jerry Jones and and and his thinking all what happens next now in this search for the next cowboys head coach I think a guy like Mike Zimmer Minnesota Vikings head coach could potentially be a candidate you say how could that be well I I II coach there in the deepest corner along try defensive coordinator for Jerry Jones is the bill Parcells fact either stay here they know what they're getting in that particular coach but also there's a young officer coordinator in cabin step band he this sitting there in Minnesota the Minnesota Vikings don't want to part ways with him they don't want him all of a sudden start to get interviews and become a category another team so I would be surprised if somehow might dimmer wind up being the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys in the cabinet she takes over as the head coach of the Minnesota Vikings so a lot of story lines this call come about here over the next with date but I think this time around you will get the head coaching job right where the coach may be season one more before we go do you think that at this point Jerry Jones is ready to surrender more control to a head coach now then he has been willing to in the past as bill Parcells left and and I want to turn this on your stamina I am right now status is not a defense Jerry Jones was some what he is and even as well as we clay as well as Jerry junior what is your you Jones gone wrong with that organization other than the head coaching hire that's a very good question that's very good everybody everybody everybody said here you're you're here the one on that team thank you for calling the latter team for the National Football League I would I would argue and say that their top five channels it is four tally dole is a National Football League the problem is that head coach because you're you're not holding the plate yeah well that gives the player is a free pass for having innate need season the talent on the field didn't win enough games he and Garrett will finish as the second longest tenured and second most winningest coach in team history Tom Landry a record of eighty five and sixty seven the wonders to playoff games unable to get past the divisional round Mike wells Myron Medcalf on Freddie Fitzsimmons the Dallas Cowboys there you know they draw attention but the the the days of being America's team and wanted to be part of what is age and it's not the same anymore it is not the same strictly because of what you have to deal with away from just coaching of football team is not simply you know put together a strong staff the coaster brakes of Amari Cooper Ezekiel Elliott and dak Prescott it's also having the answer constant questions from your boss the owner Jerry Jones deck could become a headache when you're you can't simply just focus on the task of putting your team in the proper position the try to have success there's a side show that comes with it and some people are built or not built to be able to deal with that so you got to find the right coach who is not only a great Exynos guy but somebody who's mentally strong enough to handle the constant you know looking over the shoulders and the pestering of your boss meddling in the inside of things wonder why things are not going well or to give us suggestions on what you should be doing that's not something easy that everybody can handle that type of situation well it and not everybody wants it and that's why I think a lot of these cultures your Matt rules related rallies urban Meyer's why except that to me if you're not going to modernize the structure of your organization so that your owner can do what every other owner does and take a backseat and not be this forward facing figure who's hosting its own press conferences after the game sometimes undermining the head coach then then how can you expect to attract a great candidate bomb out rule no one eight I'm leaving Baylor I got a chance to build something there if I'm leak in Raleigh I'm in Oklahoma and every year I get a chance to go to the college football playoff leave in Oklahoma where I can coach for another decade at least about continue to succeed ever murmur Meyer I'm not leaving LA or on the TV analyst making good money watching a lot of football injuries bouncing around the country see a lot of teams to go to Dallas where I've got a deal with Jerry that's why I think it's going to be difficult if Jerry Jones wants to continue to be Jerry Jones I don't think Mike he's going to end up with any of the top candidates identifying potential replacements Bobby carpenter and fox college football reporter Bruce Feldman gas on Freddie impede Simmons Stephen Jones Jerry Jones offered that coaching job urban Meyer she would say I think that's a hard job to say no urban probably wouldn't be needing to be for another year is that all you but who knows enough the big job at the glamorous job and remember the nose you know damn owns his courage and damn ongoing expound acted it all back thank god yeah I was supposed to do the oil itself journal part of mine and to buy that it was offered so you're going to want to meet your need to guide it was a proven track record we've done it before who's been in the playoffs the only guy that I look at the newest hires cycle that's really available is Mike McCarthy and it's free thank god I'm not that I'm not the biggest Mike McCarthy stand the world but he's the only guy that it holds no one Barty and that is the only thing that Jerry Jones once he is getting older is that you know you if you spend more time on this earth that he's going to spend has the last was starving if you get that oracle Marty troche with them of the order would love to put it in there Mike you've done that you chose to leave and you've been in the playoffs he's done a good job that would be my selection I don't know if they don't know what it does do checks all

"mike wells" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"One Mike wells signature week number eleven obviously we number eleven is not done the majority the games alright we'll go through one more take away plus some key things that happen in this week eleven that you have to know about our everyone will laugh at you at the office tomorrow the rams right now leading the bears ten seven in LA on Sunday night football about just under five minutes left in the third quarter and that one stop me if you've heard this before the bears have missed a couple field goal that is not good really quickly before we get to the take away the rams are still strange we just because it is because of being the bears ten seven the bears are obviously not the bears of last year and remember we remember this game in which the bears have figured out the rams for the first time but Salinger gafas turn up five seven ninety five yards with an interception of the seventy four quarterback rating the good news for the rams is for all the talk of Todd Gurley not be in Todd Gurley he does have seventeen carries which is significant with an entire quarter plus five minutes to go seventeen Kerry seventy five yards and a touchdown I would say that if I was a rams fan and I could get Todd Gurley being Todd Gurley again out of this game I take that let me give you're right about that but away John I have no sympathy for Chicago Bears or Chicago Bears writers and having to deal with the with the kicking problem out there I know it started for them last year but I've had my fair share kicking problems here in Indianapolis this season with them at a military missile eleven cakes through the first nine nine games of the season for the cold so I have no sympathy for the folks at their Chicago where they get it in that would be so unpopular they're not gonna releasing this year anything either no no he bounced back and I had a laugh with everybody there because he was a player for five a cake so between Adam militaries kicking problems with the engine looks retirement slash older problems the last couple years the words military and look kind of kind of made me cringe a little bit these days yeah you've got a fun see that far all right it's gave not on ESPN radio ten seven four fifty left in the third the rams leading the bears of course we got the money that football coming up tomorrow night to wrap up the week the chiefs and Chargers from Mexico City antisocial later on in the show from Mexico City we'll take a break from all the the great food everything else it was a a preview of Monday Night Football we got your take away with Lamar Jackson my take away is the Minnesota Vikings were down twenty the nothing to the Denver Broncos from that point forward they outscored the Broncos twenty seven to three and they get the victory that was shocking early as I thought the Vikings or the sleeper teams with all the discussions of of the saints in the forty Niners the Packers the Vikings improved to eight and three years Kirk cousins that Kyle Rudolph for thirty two yarder to give the Vikings lily first and ten from demos thirty two cousins under center play action looking to following on TV and radio need to have a little bit more fun when the Vikings or a touch down here is Esteban digs after the game saying that the media needs to show some respect from love the Kerr cousins spread lies are your grades are Hey you guys need to get more credit you know you guys are hard on the many many plate reader is a plan well you know he's on everything a cancer right now he just helped us get in the back in a game in so many days I want you to guys I've seen him a Pat on the back we will twenty nine of thirty five three hundred nineteen yards three touchdowns no interceptions and a one thirty three rating I don't know what it's going to take because I look at we were talking earlier about the the talented so on the Dallas Cowboys look at the telling of the Minnesota Vikings on both sides of the ball and Mike simmers a great defensive mine is look the Viking you to say Hey there they could be something that everybody looks at Kirk cousins with the guaranteed eighty four million and says well wait a minute that quarterback I remove that got the red skins never stepped up in big games what will it take for people to believe in Kirk cousins basically the Minnesota Vikings and make them wonder teams that people are talking about in the end of C. as far as the two will continue team made let them put them in the say it's going to take for them to go in the same category as Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay Packers drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints that team out there in the bay area that you're familiar with the San Francisco forty Niners and also the Seattle Seahawks when you talk about teams that represent the NFC in Super Bowl I don't think I you don't hear many people say the Minnesota Vikings because I think that everybody is sold on Kirk cousins and his ability to potentially get there everybody talks about the the quarterbacks in the other the the other the conventional those issues I mentioned meaning Green Bay New Orleans Seattle which has a great defense and also the forty Niners yeah about a week her cousins in his last five games has twelve touchdowns no interceptions and four of those five games has been over one hundred in a as far as quarterback rating is concerned by the way I agree with you one hundred percent I I think what Kirk cousins is doing is great but where guys who especially would have reputations like this you've got to do it one of those games it doesn't matter how you play during the regular season every sport is like this you've got to if you have that kind of reputation you got to do in the playoffs so is he can play as well as he wants to play and I understand what's the fun digs a say in their body weight digs five catches one hundred twenty one yards and a touchdown in the twenty seven twenty three comeback win for the Vikings against them them to eight and three but everyone's gonna be skeptical guys might like you and I are going to sit here and talk about it because you can do it the regular season in every sport until you do it in the playoffs especially when you have his reputation it's not gonna go away it is not you don't become people talk about you in great Paredes based off of what you do just in the regular season because you can not lead your team for a deep playoff run you just a great regular season quarterback who fails stir in the playoffs and asked dad that is the you know kind of the quote unquote label that Kirk cousins has to remove from his name he can continue to play you could continue to play well and lead the Vikings to the playoffs hopefully you know potentially that lead them to first place in the NFC north with them so the plants in the start of a goal is Kurt is Kurt capable of taking the next step towards Kirk gonna be they got a kind of falls back I mean they're they're basically that the Packers are on a on a by this week in Green Bay they can to Minnesota is eighty three so I could see this this division coming down the stretch between these two teams Mike well John one game at any Aspin radio the ESPN app we're taking you through week number eleven again ten seven the rams lead the bears on Sunday night football to keep you updated on that about three half minutes left in the third quarter on that you and I both were an NFL stadiums today you were and you need apples the objects of the colts the colts improved to six and four thirty three thirteen I was in a Santa Clara California what's in the Niners let's start with you the colts the AFC south is crazy I think this the the the Texans are ready to take it over they get beat up by the ravens today the cold said you Kobe percent out he comes back there the disappointing losses there but that really was the run game for the for the colts today where the cold sitting today and what did you what did you think of your a first hand account of what you saw today from them what well quite honestly I mean I I think the Jaguars when the football game because the cult of an old one seven without T. Y. Hilton he missed his fourth game of the season today with a captain so I went with the Jaguars but the colds they basically were worried about a pass in football is all about the running game they have twenty to sixty four yards rushing highest total in like in fifteen years Marlon Mack the starting running back can't a Buck ninety four leave with a hand injury but then Jonathan Williams a guy who had one I mean one rushing yards all season came in in the second half around four hundred sixteen yards the office line is that they believe the Jacksonville Jaguars and now that the Cold suave struggle losing to the office last week and we'll go went to Houston on a short week in first place in the AFC south with an opportunity to sweep the Texans this season a kind of a thing put a stranglehold on the division something I didn't think was going to happen after angel look retire several months ago I'm glad you said that about Jonathan Williams might because I had never heard of him and I was going to enter light saying it to guys over a hundred yards I don't know Jonathan ones is but I was gonna embarrass I'm glad no no no no no no no don't know where they got it this is this is the first time I actually first time I interviewed job the Williams today I kinda I feel like I should one up and kind reintroduce myself tone to because we had never said anything more than what's up inside the locker room that is I will get more that'll bit later the AFC south is wide open so we'll get into that conversation.

Milo Ventimiglia talks his new film 'The Art of Racing in the Rain'
"This. This is popcorn where we tell you what's happening at the movies and there's a movie out right now that it's gonna make you can make you cry. It's going to make you laugh and it's called the art of racing in the rain. I mean it starts my guest milo ventimiglia welcome to the show happy to be here. Thank you and what you've done. Montmelo is broken. All the rules that actors are always told never to you. Don't work with animals with kids here you are and there i am happily and you just said i don't care what you say. You know. This is what made you are. You just yourself a major dog on <hes>. I mean for me. This wasn't a role that i was afraid of. It felt like something that i slash we as an audience needed. It's a human story. It's a story about a good father story about a good husband sure about a lovely family that is teaching their dog enzo the life lessons in needs to imprint it so that when he becomes a human in his next life. He'll be ready to be a good person he does want to be. He doesn't want so badly so badly what he wants wants curses himself for being dog and moments when his instinct is giving him insight to what this family is going through but he can't speak it. He can't say he just sit back and let things happen. So you have a dog yourself. No no no even like them. Love dogs okay. You said that i think we'd have to end the bucket out. The door wouldn't even give you the pop. That's maybe one of my way. Also this dog ends named after into dr a sound suspiciously like kevin costner very much so i won't even say might be kevin costner. He was here a couple weeks ago. I'm still hearing would what a what a lovely lovely coast or that. I never got to work with so you're not hearing on the set while you're doing this. What we're hearing in the audience know much like you. You know one is hearing with the dogs actually thinking there's no talking dogs in this. It's it's all the inner monologue of this dog as he's talking to himself telling the story story to himself of this family of this man but yeah no. I didn't hear anything i kind of our script supervisor and our our director simon curtis they would talk amongst themselves they would she would read <hes> enso's dialogue and simon. I'm kind of pause me and okay now. Hold on please and then i'll just be interacting with the dog you know and then he'd say okay and action and then i resume my lines or dialogue log on to where we needed to anything so i wasn't actually here in any kind of voice. Your thoughts are what what are the perils and the joys of working with a dog as the scene partner. You have to basic. I mean one. They're gonna steal the scene from me because i mean they're hand sorry. They're beautiful. They're there there you know you've been called all those things but still yeah they do with their with their with their tongues out in the tail's wagging you haven't tried that one yet avenue but because their animals you know you have to respect that their animals and take time and be patient with what they need to learn what they need to do. Repetitive over and over and over again not distract them feel like people can be distracted but yet we can handle a lot on our plate at any given time animals it was task at hand walked them there to their pick up some popcorn or lay down whatever it is is hold the remote and its mouth so it was a discipline of patients to just make sure that myself trainers were communicating and that i was given the dogs but they needed an intern. Instinctually they gave me what i needed which was a scene partner and that that was what was so special about our two dogs about parker and butler was what they were doing. Instinctually who they were was remarkable but i would also i would talk to the dogs like people like just you know not really full voiced that uncertain moments i'd have to crouch down and whispering to parker's ear hotel what was would say hey. We're gonna do this scene. I'm going to be a little stress but i love you. Kid don't worry we're fine. Don't tell me don't let yourself yourself. Get agitated. Just just stick with me at the end of it. I got a nice chicken. Treat for you yeah well. What made you not a dog owner sanjay. I want to do this movie. It was beautiful human story. You know what i saw. Again was a good man. <hes> living a life that was in many points of it difficult challenges obstacles real life stuff that was just constantly constantly hanging on him and i saw his heart and his determination to get through all that and do it for those that he loved. I loved. I loved the message behind that caring for the people that you really love and that fills you up well who can argue with that it also who oh can't relate to that. That's the thing that i also loved about. This felt like an extension of my t._v. Show this is us felt like something that everybody can draw raw from. Everybody can connect danny. Everybody can connect to eve everyone can connect to to <hes> enso's point of view. It just felt very relative. Tive who had you played that we can connected to who was the rat bastard in your career played a couple aw played one <hes> in a movie called wildcard. Jason statham the son of a mob boss who got away with the worst behavior. <hes> <hes> played <hes> the villain at the end of the second season of gotham t._v. Show he was a <hes>. He was a killer <hes> and play some pretty dark guys. Is that enjoyable to you too. I think everyone that i play short of that. That movie wildcard enjoyed that guy. I just really didn't like i didn't like putting on the character just didn't like any of it but for me it's they're all different sizes of humanity and i always feel like there's something to learn and and something to display people whether you're inspired to be good or showcasing that we really can't be this inhumane well sometimes by showing showing that in humanity you're you're also revealing something about sure us in the audience about what we don't wanna be exactly which is a good thing to it's one of the great things about being an actor does is that you can have that yeah and speaking about good at what you do. Congratulations third emmy nominations to the <hes>. This is us and season four coming in yeah. I'm already two episodes in just tell us what happened in the first to the next sixteen all of them yeah oh man should know so. Can you actually tell us how thing no i mean. I could say it's going to be great. I know really right in line with everything that this is us has done from seasons one to two to three the formula hasn't changed <hes> <hes> the pearson family feels like we're getting even deeper and deeper and deeper into who this family is who these people are as individuals in it you you know <hes> it's really just it's a joy to work on. I've had i've had a really amazing couple years going from that. Show this film and yeah. I'm <hes> i'm really lucky. It's fascinating to me because i remember also seeing you in rocky balboa woah yeah we're still alone is your father and that he has those speeches where he's basically you. You know talking about fatherhood what it is doing but then win season to this is oh yes like came. Flight comes on doing a scene with kevin yeah in a movie that he's doing talking about you. Who's gon who's his sons but also his his is his <hes>. He was his <hes> his hero. Yeah i mean i what i have had the first conversation with sly about joining the show and i pretty much told must i explained his part of it. You know inspiring a younger actor and his how he was my character. Jack's biggest onscreen hero and i basically told him i said all of that couldn't be closer to the truth as a younger actor i note it was like to be on set with you and dan to to just watch listen and learn what he was up to and what he was able to accomplish and i applied that to my everyday working process as an actor but then also from the character's point of view like he was my onscreen here on mike well yes lie was my onscreen hero to you know so. I don't know maybe a lot of flattery got him but also i mean you know his involvement with our writers and writing collect like coming together to share his his voice and what he wanted to tell of being playing himself. I don't know that he's ever played himself in the show but it was yeah you got a good day. You had a good time. He told me he goes a really good day so really good data good data. Yeah well the the two of you have. There's some similarities. People people think that i'm actually his son. Yeah yeah sure just go yet to do it well. You always say that you have this crooked matt do so where does that come from. Just i was born that way. I don't know where it comes from or what what got broken on the way way out but <hes> but it's definitely crooked i used to i used to talk out of the side of my face like this audience and i really didn't realize it until i was thinking might have been a teenager and i saw a local news channel interview or something and i was really struck by how crooked my mouth was when i spoke and so i remember sitting down in front of a mirror and reading reading and trying to catch what words made my mouth very very crooked and in doing that i figured out how i could kind of level it out a a little bit and it gave me kind of lazy speech pattern so now people don't quite know where <hes> from because of my lazy speech pattern because i'm trying to correct my crooked mouth but i don't know it works it is it's all kind of working. I think so i mean but did did it. Intimidate you when you were starting out doing. I said you have like moments. Have how am i gonna do this audition. <hes> where people cruel as people in hollywood can be yeah i had a i was in a castle one time how to cash or say hey could you. You just stopped doing that thing. You're doing with your mouth because you're doing a thing with your mouth and i go. You know what i was born that way and i just stared at all. I'm sorry i'm like no you're not and then i did the thing and i didn't get the part but it was like that was me that was me. I feared playing a vampire because you know vampires when they play vampires like they open their mouth. The big thing was going to go to the side and i thought seles or if i was like you know now. I've some wearing a masters. There's like there's a dead giveaway.
"mike wells" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"At Mike wells ESPN. It's Mike wells, NFL writer, did you know NFL? They, you know what I had NFL tried to change it. Yes. PIN. And I'm not exactly computer savvy. I realize I didn't know how to change the DSP. And so I love to the NFL Mike wells NFL, I'm at Dickerson ESPN. We're also at ESPN radio haven't mentioned this yet, but obviously very sad news, in the NFL hall of fame quarterback Bart Starr is passed away at the age of eighty five he helped build the Packers dynasty in the nineteen sixties. He was the most valuable player Mike of the first two Super Bowls. He won five NFL championships as the Packers starting quarterback on believable career Bart Starr, gone at eighty five but man what a legacy he did leave. Yes it, I mean when you when you think about the Green Bay Packers. That's what you think about. I mean you know bar. Stars one of the first people, you think about message of very sad day. Ian O'Connor very talented pain writer had wrote a nice piece on him several years ago and tweeted out several times today. So hopefully people will check it out and read about it in other NFL news filed this under things I thought I would never see in print on ESPN dot com. How about Joel McCoy telling Josina Anderson are just going to Anderson the other day that quote, I want to win. So what does he do? He thinks a free agent. Visit to the Cleveland Browns a world. Hold on. Wait, wait. I thought he said. Didn't he say he wanted to win? Yeah. And he wants to win. So he's going to visit the Baker Mayfield lead. Cleveland browns. When winning in Cleveland Browns are three words that do not go together. I know but I mean I to the under the point now where I really hope they win, because it has been so built up. And I'm telling you something right now, here's a little spoiler alert from two guys that right for ESPN dot com. There's gonna be a lot of Brown's coverage this year. Mike. And I know if you'd things and the Browns are going to be a team that's going to be covered like the patriots. I'm just telling you right now because they are a great story to be turning the corner. They got Baker Mayfield to Monday night football games. Yes. They're on primetime TV. This is it's happening in Cleveland. We think, but I'll tell you what for them for them to have a, a Pro Bowl Pro Bowl defensive player who was just released who's going to take some free agent visits. And he visits you because he wants to win even though the Browns haven't won a playoff game since I can't remember when that just shows you how far this franchise is coming in the minds of some people. Oh, god. I'm still trying to wrap wrap things up. I think in Gerald McCoy wants to win and go to Cleveland Browns. Yes. They were a great story. I mean, they got talent. I mean Baker Mayfield is going to be a heck of a quarterback in the NFL. Odell Beckham junior Jarvis Landry. But there's still, I mean, the question is can live up to the hype live up to the expectations with a first time head coach. God is the pressure's gonna be out there and not only that, but there's a certain guy, a first time last name Brady still in the AFC as a whole. There is a guy named Philip rivers in the AFC Patrick Mahomes league MVP in a quarterback that I cover here in Indianapolis by Andrew luck who have very talented teams and who I think, you know, right now on paper would have the edge over the Cleveland Browns. But hey I don't want to try to want to try to be that. There are good friends in Cleveland. I don't wanna be that buzzkill guy. But. Maybe maybe they can be like the Milwaukee Bucks and have success this season in in, you know, trying to build off of the next season. I just. But you never know we, we have both covered football for a long time, and we know anything can happen at any point, so credited Gerald McCoy to forgiving credit to the Cleveland Browns as a team he believes the could have success next season. What I'm curious to know is the average Cleveland Browns fan. What is what would constitute a good season for you? Like if they go nine and seven is that a good season or has Brown's mania reached the point without a playoff winning two decades. Where fans think this is going to be like a twelve win team. Because like I've had that issue before in Chicago Bears. Won twelve games last year. It was like miraculous Matt Nagy has changed things up. It's been it's been great. But even in the even in the dark ages, John FOX era, Mike when the bears were were so awful that, that they knew on the bus ride to the stadium. They were going to lose on Sunday. You know, you'd have we, we would do our season predictions, ESPN dot com every year. I would be like, you know, six ten whatever this is a twelve win team Dickerson, you're an idiot eleven wins back when you know there was still the quarterback under Mark Trestman. Like this is a fifteen win team. You're a moron. So fans sometimes have unrealistic expectations. But the, the height machine has been turned up to eleven with the Browns for the entire off-season. Like I wonder what, what really do Browns fans expect what do you expect for the Browns? Give me give me a win total for the Browns this year. Oh come on day two. You putting the pressure on me. Seven eight one last season so day one of its bads better. But at seventy one you know what? T- tennis, six tennis, six is simply making the playoffs. I'm and I'm not even saying they have to win the AFC north. I mean simply making the playoffs will be classified as a sets because like you alluded to it's been ages in ages says the Cleveland Browns have had any type of success in the playoffs let them get their first, you got to you have to crawl before you can walk and that's what the Cleveland Browns have to do first before they can talk about being a legitimate title continuing team. I mean, they have a chance to get off to a decent start opening season at home against the Tennessee titans gifts jets before playing back to back playoff games. I mean back to back games playoff teams, the LA Rams and the Baltimore Ravens. So we'll see if they can live up to expectations early on. But let's, let's pump the brakes, let's give a double pump on the breaks before you talk. About the Browns being titled continuing team journal McCoy, I'll give them okay, I'll give him nine and seven the only reason I'm doing it is hang on. I don't know what the Steelers are right now. I don't know what this. Well, I don't know what's going on in Pittsburgh. I don't know. I mean they lose a Levy on bells gone. You know, I I don't know the Steelers to me seem like a team that could be on their way out on the way down with with Ben near the end and it's been a great run from Mike Tomlin. But obviously they haven't had the same type of team so not last year. So because I don't know what's up with the Steelers. I'll give the Browns nine and seven but I'm not going any higher than that. How do you know? If you're not buying the full height, then. It could happen that I think the bears we're gonna win twelve games last year. I did not truth. Be told I had the bears at night and seven last year in our picks. I knew they were going to be better with Matt Nagy couldn't be worse than they were under FOX, but I did not have twelve so it is possible. But even the bears have had better a better track record than the Browns since two thousand I mean, the bears made the playoffs in two thousand one thousand five thousand six two thousand ten in last year. I'm talking about Mike Brown's haven't won anything in forever. Head coach every year. It seems like the Cleveland Browns are the off season Super Bowl champions on paper. And we both know you not win a title on paper. I covered a team in two thousand fifteen with the coal toured off season champions and went out when eight Mr. playoff. So just because you have a quote unquote successful off-season doesn't mean you're gonna have success on the football field. So we have to take the wait and see approach with the Cleveland Browns right now. And I thought I was being pretty magnanimous giving him nine wins. I feel pretty good.

The only thing I'm so bad about my popcorn and butter. I can relate to cow coups move. You remember last year with the young Lakers? They were roasting each other all the time.

"mike wells" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"I'm joined by Mike wells, Indianapolis Colts reporter, and guess what is wild this weekend. It is wild card weekend at eight fifteen eastern time today the Seahawks take on the Cowboys. And we are very fortunate to be hit with some fantastic gets guests back to back. We've got Todd Archer here. ESPN NFL nation. Cowboys reporter, thanks for joining us. Todd. Yeah. You got it. No problem. Well, the Cowboys. Okay. It's it's so much expectation in Texas, not only because they host these wild card games. But when it comes to the Cowboys who do you think is the most important player in the match up. I think a lot of people are putting expectations on on back to prove that he's not necessarily manager. But I think Zeke has much to bear and sodas Amari. Yeah. I think if you look at the game for the Cowboys win, I think the most pressure because the ball will go through him. He was saying that he expects his highest workload of the entire season. So we know they're gonna give him the ball. If you talk about the pressure to win a game. Then the most pressure goes onto the quarterback here. Dak Prescott playing only his second playoff game. You have people saying, okay, I'm gonna show us. What are you guys in the regular season and playoff or what is it? Probably more pressure on back to get the win. Then there is on. But if the Cowboys they're going to win it's gonna be a big day for Ezekiel Elliott. So it's always the quarterback here only. I mean, it's are you Roger Staubach Troy Aikman or any way. Tony romo. What are you going to be? And and this is a as Ed look playoff success. This is where the checks get written for quarterbacks. And he knows it. You had a good week of practice. And I think he's ready to show that he's not just the guy that can win the regular season. It's hard. When you look at a discount. We often, obviously. Prescott also Zeke you'll get the headlines. But what does the addition of Amari Cooper done for this offense, the help easel overdose too? It's definitely helped Mike because you got a guy who on the outside can win and win by himself in the first seven games the season. They didn't have that. So that that will really hurt back. Obviously the passing game struggled to get the two hundred yards bashing a game. And also because all of a sudden defenses had to say, wait a minute. They got this guy outside we got paid attention to him. That's one last defender at times out of the box to stop running game. So he's he's really changed the whole trajectory of the Cowboys season. And they've gone belongs to game since he's been here. And now he's been quiet lately. Though. I it's only eighty three yard in his last three games is the do right at ninety yard touchdown catch and one game. So they've got gotta find a way to get him the ball, even if Seattle Wolters, thanks take them away. Make sure that he's an element. And it's often not just the guy running out there just running around speaking of that tied. What are you most concerned about going into this match up against the Seahawks? Well, you look at their defense in. The last three times the Cowboys have played Seattle fifteen seventeen and eighteen they've had thirty three possessions against these guys. And they scored one touchdown. They they can't have field goals today and expect to win and red zone has been an issue for most of the season for the Cowboys. The last few days has been better against Tampa, New York. But if they get in the red zone they have to convert the touchdown. They were among the worst teams in the regular season got better late. So they need to add a fast start and get off in score touchdowns against this defense that they've not done it against. And you look at Dacca. He's played against you guys. Twice. One touchdown four picks. He's been sacked too much. So they need to find some elements that passing game early opened things up for me and make sure they convert their red zone chances. Man, it was. So when you get the prediction that it is game who you go with in his game. You know, I picked the Cowboys and I. Greg. Okay. There's probably some reasons why. And then by the end of the week as I you completely talk yourself out of what you picked. So now, I mentioned that stat of thirty three thirty three possessions. Just the one type sound. So that has to be a little worried that what are they gonna matter figure out in this game that they haven't been able to figure out the last few times that they've played them. But I think this defense can do some things against Seattle even with even with that running game they run around making a bunch of place. I think defense get a game changer for the Cowboys match kind. Why pick them to win a low scoring game and advance to the playoffs or and all the wildcard at AT and T stadium. So maybe the home crowd. They finally have a home field advantage or seven and one. I think that that that gets the Cowboys through the next round. So before we let you go, and I just wanna hear this loud and clear because we know Cowboys America's team the Cowboys will win if x happens. Doc guy does not turn over the ball. He he's only lost one one. In his game when he's played for free. So if he stays away from stakes fumbles interception. The Cowboys went again. All right. Well, never turnovers when you join us. Thanks for. Of knowledge with us. Todd. You gotta thanks guys. Appreciate it every day. I feel like there's so much expectations happening in Texas. And I'm so mad. I'm in Connecticut right now when I should be home in Texas, Mike, because no, no, no, no, no. Here's the deal. Go ahead and gonna get on your go get on your private jet and come on down here. It's okay. Get their private jet. You can get here by four thirty five kickoff. You can get here in time. Then when that game's over you can get up to Dallas by the WNBA player. You know, we ain't got no PJ's. You know, it's interesting especially seeing the trajectory of these two quarterbacks. Russell Wilson's backpass guy like their expectations. I think Russell wasn't clearly has revived the Seattle team. But Dak it's sort of like he's trying to just get over that hump improved that he's capable. But you don't wanna look to be looked to as a manager ever in sports. Right. You want to be someone that can really exceed expectations time and time again which somebody done especially at a young age. You think about like off Mahomes, even darnold, you know. So it's difficult, but how about let's switch up to Houston. My city colts. Obviously, I it's gonna be interesting to see how Andrew luck is received. And if he plays out of his mind largely because it's nice to be back home up against the Houston. Texans. It is. And that's the thing for some reason. A Coulter the whole play very well down here in Houston. You know, we've talked about t y Hilton nine thirty to seven touchdowns in seven career games here down to Houston. And as Don McLean from the Houston chronicle. We talked about earlier he said that neither team's gonna run. The football colts have not given up a hundred yards rushing to any player this season and the Texans. They don't give up big plays on the ground. So the game's going to be one through the air in this situation. And so that's a matter of Kim. The colts contain what cloudy long enough for edgy. Look to make some quick rhythm throws and get these going down the field. It's going to it's going to be a high scoring game. But it's not gonna be a default about I think both teams are gonna make big plays. That's just the capability of both quarterbacks in this situation. The culture definitely the hotter team and Thomas. About how we go back and forth on you pick one team. And he starts second guessing yourself I picked the Houston Texans. The win this game and our predictions on ESPN dot com. But at the same time, I would not be shot one little bit. If the colts pool off just because of your boy, Andrew luck, Houston. Boy, Stanford guy the passionate he's played with the see them. We haven't even talked about what he's done. I mean thirty nine touchdowns more than every quarterback not named Patrick Mahomes in the NFL. This is the guy who returned from the Netherlands frustrating frustrated questioning on whether he would even continue to play football again. And now if it was now for as book booger McFarland mentioned to me earlier this week if not from homes and drew Brees injury luck. We'll be right in the thick of things in the MVP race. Oh, I know. He may he may not even be one hundred percent after not playing almost nineteen months. He may not be a hundred percent. So just imagine how good he's going to be whether the colts. Win today or they lose today if she's healthy. Yes, he's going to be even better. Well, we'll see I think the number one thing is we'll see which team will come up lucky all those teams going down wild card weekend. Especially in Texas now coming up next. We'll go through some of the biggest NBA storylines from last night. It's Saturday on ESPN radio. I'm your girl's name limiting here with Mike. Wells, you better stay with us..
"mike wells" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"You can give me compliments you could get after Mike wells NFL there. Bring it on bring it on bring it on. You know, what you will hear broadcasters at times make the mistake of calling the chargers the San Diego. Chargers knowing that they are the LA chargers. Right. And it just happens because we grew up watching the charges in San Diego, and because the charges cannot strike a stadium deal in San Diego where they really belong the play at the twenty seven thousand seats stubhub center in Los Angeles slash Inglewood. And so this is this is what's going on right now with the chargers where they don't really have a home, but yet they're packing twenty seven thousand seat stadium now against the chargers over the years. Let me great teams and see what's happening now despite them not really having a true home yet. They're winning and they're doing well under Anthony Lynn. And really think about it. Jay, basically, the step children in in LA. I mean, it's all about the Rams and nobody's talking about the chargers. And I don't think people were talking about them until they went into Pittsburgh on Sunday night football came from behind to beat them. And then on Thursday night football beat a red hot Kansas City Chiefs team. And I still don't believe Philip rivers and company are getting a full of respect. I mean, people don't realize that they have a very good defense led by Botha and an incredible rookie and James, but they get to the when they get into the playoffs. I think they're they're going to be a team that has the capability to make a run to the Super Bowl. The one thing you can always depend on with Philip rivers in his bolo tie over the years is that when the when the charges would play on CBS, you can always depend on the charges being down six with no timeouts with women it to go and rivers started interception right into sixty minutes except on the west coast every single time. Now, I mean to me it should be a thirty for thirty. I don't know the actual numbers to it. But over the years, it was like the most that's the most thrilling teller is not the the witching hour in the NFL, not necessarily playoff games. But every time that the charges would be in that four PM block. Right. And there it is right up against sixty minutes that he throws over the middle. Intercepted and the ball over. Now, sixty minutes on the west coast from San Diego. I mean that that really was his existence. But you know, what he's turned things around big time here in two thousand eighteen eight interceptions eight interceptions. I don't think you have to worry about that as much anymore. And we you know, we were talking about we were talking about MVP candidates. I'm Mike Wallace. I've Lesley Stahl. Coming up on sixty minutes. He was like the sun coming up in the morning by new. Go. No timeouts. The field. That's, but you know, what bolo tie is getting the job done. I'm just telling you right now that this chargers team would Anthony Lennon should be in the mix for coach of the year is definitely in the mix here for coach of the year. But we turned out to Philip rivers apologised Chris Mitchell standing by Bristol studios. Chris Mitchell who believes that Philip rivers should be the MVP based on how they play we turn to Chris. Now, Chris I mean, I'm just saying he should be in the conversation. I get drew Brees. I get Patrick Mahomes. But Philip rivers is putting up just as good a numbers. He's had to deal with plenty of injuries this year. And the man is playing sixteen road games this season. That that is good enough to be in the conversation. There you go. Philip rivers is driving himself from San Diego to LA. How sure he's probably got him a personal driver. Or he's doing the Kobe thing got him a little helicopter or something take him. So he does not heal. Commute. Come on. Now. He's not driving. He sleep in watching video. Okay. And that's his own choice. The wanna stay in San Diego. And let us family say down there. You know? We haven't talked to Eric Williams from NFL nation. It covers the chargers in the little bit. I bet that twenty seven thousand seat stadium is lit from the charges doing well. I can't imagine indifference. Right. That really be a road situation. Those charges fans coming out in their rooting for the team, right? I watched the Steelers game that went out there. And it looked like they were more Steelers fans than charger fans in that stadium. Put it this way Jay hood, when you think about being in LA, you put the pecking order, you're going Lakers. I, yep. Dodgers second USC football was Buddhist share and they still probably they're probably still third on that list. And then you could probably make an argument for UCLA basketball. You got the then you then you can kinda toss up things out there after that. But that's that's four teams. And they're probably do. I mean, I got the Rams number five on that list. What about me baby? So yes, you do. What about me? Doc Rivers is out there. You know, Doc Rivers just happy to have a job for some coaches that seems to find a way to keep his job. But that's that's a different. That's a different segment different show. Don't talk about me like that baby. That's how that's how it is. So the chargers are like sixth or seventh on the list of important teams in the LA area and eight eleven and three what about talk rivers. No, no, no, no, listen, the clippers games are the ones you go to because you know, you can get a decent seat in there. Because there's no matter how bad the Lakers are you're not gonna get a good seat are terrible. Where's your holiday cheer? You really really? I'm starting to look I think there's a lump of call them my stocking right now. Doc in. ESPN radio has you covered for ballgame. Action to Dan tonight for the Hawaii bowl presented by Buffalo Wild Wings. Coverage begins at nine thirty eastern on ESPN radio the SPN and should be a good one. You mean all all ninety five hundred ballgames and some names. I never heard of before it doesn't matter. If you heard of them or not doesn't matter that there's a reason why these games taking place you talk about fans showing up. Goodness, gracious, man. Times are tough. You know, just can't get there on time. And for those complain about the bowl games, you're talking to a college football fans you well. No, look it college football is like it is in the regular season. You don't watch every game. So you just pick the ball games you wanna watch. And then you move forward. You'll worry about the games that you don't want to watch. I don't watch every game in the in college football. Even though I got ten screens in my in my hood cave, but still. Yes. And I'm not messing nine. I'm saying I've never heard of that bowl. I mean, I I miss the days of the the raising that ballgame game and things like that. I like watching a ballgame in Boise cycle look at the blue football field. But you got a ballgame in the Bahamas. Don't get me wrong. If I school went there. I'd gladly go and enjoy myself. But yes, to way too, many bowl games, in my opinion. Unbelievable. You don't have to worry about is it too many college football games too. No, no, no..
"mike wells" Discussed on KNBR The Sports Leader
"Defensive lineman from temple because it seemed like he was the, talk of the defensive side Julian Taylor The, obviously really like him solace says that is is technique is nowhere near where it needs. To be but he's. Just so big so strong and so violent with his hands. What did you think of Taylor, last, night because he was. Everywhere yeah violent with his, hands I think, is is a, great description I mean he's sort of. All over the place but he he's, got these, long arms he's long legs that he sort of a whirling dervish he sees hard to block and he does tend to stagger these offense lineman with his punch and he he's he's a great example of somebody who looked in the game like he's looked in practice and he was he was. There from start to finish I think he played, thirty thirty two snaps which is a lot. For defensive lineman in in a preseason game and he had a sack you. Know in, the fourth, quarter that that's that set up the forty Niners. Game winning drive show he looked really good the e- seems? Like a shoe in to make the team I think if Eric, Armstead were Healthy you know he's he's, still easily, starter but Ewing Taylor is a guy that's going to be able to come in and. Give you some quality. Snaps even early in the season I haven't even asked you. Guys was the place half filled I I don't even think hassled capacity, what's capacity seventy right sixty eight five I would say twenty eight. Five twenty, eight thirty maybe around thirty, because they weren't is funny people were even though I mean people are sitting in their seats so if you're sitting in the upper reaches. That's where it gets where you're sitting and people stayed there Let me ask, you both in again and let me go back holes holes Yeah but why would you want to you know and I understand all. The reasoning about getting shape and do it before people and all that, stuff and you wanna work out. And see how you're gonna make your team your roster up. And all that but? Why put that out nationally when places, even half filled why? Have your, product so I guess I'm gonna ask you what are you asking I'm asking why would you want to put a product, out there where. You've got the best. Product going and you. And? Then you these exhibition games? People don't wanna come. They're not that interested why, why, don't you just have, I'll ask you this could you pick your roster Matt you see from interested but I bet you. The giants are the Niners Cowboys probably did a. Pretty nice, number against giants pirates giants was number one in, the, Dallas area of? Course my point is if only twenty eight thousand like hey what the hell If, the stadium is less than half empty somebody's is is giving you a hint that we're. Not interested in, leaving our homes to come watch this could you pick your roster do. Everything. You have to do with and, then start? Your real games in September you have to have exhibition gangs Mike well you don't you could have. You could have what the Niners are going to have with Texans what the raiders had this week the. Lions remedies have teams come scrimmaging all around the league and. Not sock it to? The fans and do a college football, does when you hit? The ground, running you hit the ground running in every game matters and and to me I mean but ultimately if you ask personnel, people they need. And coaching staffs they'll. Tell you they need. To? Games for sure to get? The guys shaken off. The Russ and get them, kind, of learning how to, hit and if you same where you gotta practice everything you've gotta practice at a hit and tackle. And block and all that kind of stuff and. You know, I would say they probably need to games not, four, and they could Probably get away with two games they. Probably get away, with no games if they wanted to do these scrimmages and joint practices Money grab for sure you think. It's a bad look when people say hey I just don't wanna come and watch this stuff Yeah I, mean it's become you know a punch line I mean preseason football is synonymous with with bad television everybody knows that I mean it's going to be a lot of. Flags because you know the the officials are trying to send a signal about, what they're going to be looking for the season everybody gets hyped up, for preseason, football and by the time were you know ten minutes into the first quarter. In scrubs are in people tend to you know, only, the real die hards are watching at that point Basically that's, what preseason is. Four it's, for people who just a real sickness when. It comes to. Football and, and you know there are a lot of those people hey Matty I'm being told here on the tax and I can't confer I don't have to sources I can't. Confirm whether this is a random texture who's wrong or just trying to start, something or if he's actually onto something but the five one zero says, did you, see the gold rush girl who knelt at the anthem I wasn't I wasn't looking at the. The gold rush girl I. Was looking at the players and there was there was one, player of no now is more Keith Goodwin who had his Trish, rates but I did not I, did not notice a gold rush girl I didn't notice it either I wonder if that is a. Little techs action. Guy and I'm looking? For some Canard somebody just trying to start a little something. You don't. Think it happened I have no idea I'm just. Saying you wouldn't be the first time a texture has said let me try something they don't they're you're not risking a lot right the, gold rush what do. You make what do you make per game. To be a gold rush I don't know it's been a long time since I was Hey man I'm glad we're both glad. That. The, move to the, athletes worked out well for you so. Oh by the.

Conrad Sam, Brittany and Puerto Mike Wells discussed on Tolbert and Lund
"I am alongside ESPN culture Puerto Mike wells and we're talking about someone, who made some, history, still riding the. High right now a professional golfer Brittany succumb fresh off her appearance of the barbasol championship did, not make the cut but, made some serious. History today, finishing out her second round. An impressive performance. So Brittany tell me about this. Experience you sit here it's not just any golf tournament you're you're in this one competing. On the PGA tour the sixth woman to do it? What, were the emotions going through these last few. Days yeah thank you guys so much for having me I literally still aren't cloud dying and just to be inside the. Ropes that, the guys is. Like the coolest. Feeling ever I mean they're so good they're so talented it was just an honor. To get, the invite the play in a men's event. Then obviously I was hoping for a little better scoring but, today, I had five Birdies an eagle today was really great. And obviously to finish out my few days I finished. On a pretty big high Clearly the goal was to, make make the cut that didn't happen but how much would, you, like to, build off this and, potentially do it again get out there on the PGA tour for a second time man you know never say never so, but I'm not sure if I will You, know I still enjoying it but, in the future I mean I, thought I was going to be so nervous I didn't know. How to, be able to handle it and I really learned. A lot about myself and my Dame being inside the ropes with the guys. Nagas at different deal and just going into, the major the. British Open in two weeks just learning how to, control my nerves and and all that you know I think this week has really helped my game I can't wait to see how the rest of. The year pans out Britney when you're when you're facing something like this it's so huge I'm sure nerves become a big? Part, of it, and it's always nice to be able to. Lean on a hall of Famer for some advice you had one of those. On deck, reached out to can you feel sit on. Who that was and what they're. Able to, tell you to prepare yourself going into this. Tournament, yeah you know I finally got around to calling Sorenstam's stone, I give me her number to call more about the mental part of it I, mean golf is what I do for a living I finished, off, a playoff, actually last week style, back game is really good right now You know just calling her, on the night before my first, round your I just was trying, to get some more advice obviously there's a lot of media. There was, gonna be a lot of fans out in China. How you block out the noise she said it perfectly she was like you. Know this is obviously a few tweaks but, just more in. The future like learning how to handle these situations, it'll make my future situations a little bit easier and I totally think she was right you know the guys on PJ first of all we're stupor. Welcoming even on the first he Conrad Sam made me feel so comfortable so right away I felt like I was at? Home, in a, good place and that help with the nerves. But just in the future I think this this week will really help me. For that, if you had to take away one thing. From from being down there and. Playing Kentucky, what was the biggest takeaway for you personally Yeah and there's so many things I mean just mental. Part of it I think if you in You know I say I wanted to make the cut but just. You know I went in with a good attitude and I had a great time the whole time. That was one of my. Biggest, things that, just may be influencing child, here in the United States so many autographs for kids hopefully you know one of them one day that was. The reason why they want to be a professional golfer now maybe so. Be sending, autograph for them so just. Seeing all, the kids and all the fans that came out I mean that was pretty cool Britain you mentioned you know being that inspiration to young girls out..
