Get it on two. Did it on a church Magor mandate? Get it on thanks for sharing. Thanks for telling a friend day. Gina grandview bald. Sit you ass down. All right. Let's see had a little bit of breakthrough yesterday or Sunday night. I should say at the comedy store, which was I've been making this my. New Year's resolution go out and do stand up. And I think there's a little issue in life, which is whether it's a restaurant a movie New Year's resolution going out doing stand up a relationship. Where's have kind of expectation? It's it's not an expectation. It's kind of construction of what it she'll be like what shall this sushi restaurant be like, which Elvis movie be like what what shall this person? Be like I mean are acting with. And when it doesn't go the way decided it should go. It seems off pudding like talk about half the movies. I see. Nations. And it's like, oh by maybe nothing about it. It would be better. But you're weight always. Yeah. It's always better. It's always better when you know, nothing about it. But also, I think you have that when you're like dealing with people on the other side of the counter at the airport, you know, at the at the delta thing, and they're coming at you in a way that seems different than, you know, the time I did the Alaskan airline bag check at some point. I got out of the airport the terminal check gate. It was a gay check. And I didn't know it was a gay check. And we went all the way through the thing. And I was saying to the guy at Alaskan who's like the help desk, and the basically the lobby of the of the I guess we're in Seattle. I'm trying to think anyway. My expectation was that I was going to say to him. My bag is back at the gate on the other side of security, and then he was going to say, I'm sorry for the confusion. Mr. Corolla, we value you as a customer. Let me phone ahead to my friend, Johnny who's at the gate in hill. Run it to us. Yeah. Sorry for them convenience. Instead, he said. So do you still have your porting pass? And I was like no he's like you don't have your boarding pass. And I was like now I I don't have it because I'm done with the flight and he's like. Like use grid. But how do I get the how do I get back? I'll issue a temporary boarding pass for the plane that already land. He's like. Yup. And I'm like, but then how do I get now? Picturing something else. Okay. I guess I just get on a golf cart. And we go through some secret secret entrance to the game. He's like skidding security like a big long line. He's like do what else are we gonna do? And so my expectation of how that exchange was going to go with was much different than how it went right on that. And I think they're versions of that that exceed what you what your expectations are it happens. But there's others that oftentimes aren't. So when I started doing stand up, I started just going out, and I had a picture my head like I'm going to get up there. It's going to be like that scene or Sally fee. Fields wins over the crowd punch. Now, I hear comedians talking about how the scene is really hopping out here in L A, and the crowds are roaring. Everything's great. And. I'm going out there and the clubs are half full. Maybe and cloudy and seems pretty lacklustre and. My dad's out there yelling for me to get off the stage. And I'm also kinda also like going that feeling you'll get a little bit of it too. Which is it's like you're you're a big league game baseball game. And you're watching these guys and you go oh man put that bat in my hand, and let me get up to home plate. I'll show these guys how how how it works. And then you get up there and couple of fast balls, go whizzing by you're like, oh seems a little difficult. It's a little more difficult than I anticipated. You know, 'cause you think you're good athletes. You can handle this game show. Yeah. Yeah. It's a real version. We've all been through like high school, dances or proms. You know, you're you're like, oh, it's going to be decked out and streams everywhere in a band. But it's now it's your gym or it's what's the hotel ballroom. And it's you know, it's there's a few people that if you flyers. But it's it's it's very under. It's not pretty in pink is not succeed candles built more than ten. Underwhelms? John Hughes movie. It's your prom. Right. And so I was like going out there and go the ice has it'd be like eighteen people audience, and like they'd laugh at some of the jokes, but not all of them. And it was like it was fine. My thing was I'm gonna just go through this process anyway, and then at some point. They said, oh, man. The comedy store, that's that room hopping. You gotta get out to the comedy store. It's going off over there. And so I started doing Thursdays at the ice house. And then Sundays at the comedy store. And then I went out to the comedy store on a Sunday. And it was night one of game of thrones. And Coachella was going on. I showed up and it was the comedy store, and they're like they're like. It was the main room. There was probably forty people there. And again, it was like I thought this was popping. And it's like now here not beyond. Yeah. And I was like, okay. Well, what is this thing? I had my mind getting out there and making it happen, and everyone laughing and all that kind of stuff. And now I started in January now we're getting into may. And this the stuff, although the effect is good. The fact is working out and putting a lot of different material on its feet, and blah, blah, blah, these sort of magical nights wherever everything's everything's poppit and hop it really experiencing that but then on Sunday night. It's like going to comedy store and. I think Sarah silverman's on the Bill, and it's also weird because I don't know if I'm going to see Sarah Silverman there or how it's going to work. I haven't seen her in a while. And I show up the places packed the place is completely packed neighbor. Come in. And now there's that moment of like, wait a minute. I was going to get up there. And try some junk out with renowned puck slip because nobody cares. And now the places full. Jewish for. What do we do and Sarah Silverman is a great San of comedians going on before me? And then she's going to bring me out. And I'm like, oh boy now the yeah. Because what you ask for it. So anyway. Talked to Sarah for while in the green room had a nice conversation with her. She went out and did a great job. Although again, if you're if you're in the green room, it's kinda hard to tell exactly what's going on on says you can hear laughs bleeding through. You don't know what the materialists and then she brought me out. And it was a great night. And I and I gotta say it was like so what it was. I started in January of of done this, you know, eighteen times, and the nineteenth time was the gray and night, you know, and so who the hell knows. And why would you even think any other way of it? And the point is there's what you have in your head in terms of the expectation. And then there's what is and you should probably I'm not saying adjust your expectations. I'm just saying be tried to remove the expectations and just embraced apart. Which is. I'm going to go. I'm going to work out. Like, I'm going to I'm going to wall up this heavy bag, and I'm gonna work out real hard and maybe couple of hot chick. Stop like, it's one of those acts commercials and stare at me while I'm whacking on this heavy bag and look super attractive to me open air boutique gyms, right or maybe nobody does anything, and I just get the benefit from wagging on this heavy bag, but don't go into it with the print that. Rick seventy three I think he's from Atlanta ice. I remember I rate in Vegas. Okay. Rick tastic. Hey, everybody. Actually Adams, alternate universe. Dad? Calling in with his birthday coming up. Oh, yeah. Negative for next week. I wanted Cina and Brian in the latkes and the audience. How pro is mother and I are of him. And to knowledge his accomplishments. Let him know much we loving how har- than the great head. He's a great son to us husband. They love. We love to get together on those Wednesday night every week for for dinner. I mean, it's just it's wonderful Abbas done like wreck. Thank you you dad. I mean, dad. To how far you from road. Atlanta to add I may sleep over. Well. We got four bedrooms and four bass. But it's about a thirty mile tricks. Not not close enough. But you know, we still got that offer his mother activities, including the triple seven simulator. Yeah. Out here. You know, I talked to Katie Lang or whatever that guy's even. Yeah. Yeah. My college. But you know, realize that crystal brain syndrome realize that you're reading skills, you know, we're kind of collision between have thoughts. And can I say this? We were worried when you're younger. But somehow if angst dad, dad, all right? Hey, dad. Yeah. But now now come on. We're very proud. Thanks. I mean, dad from Atlanta. It's very it's very healing. I appreciate it. Where's he needed to hear? My dad, I dunno exceeding expectations. I don't know. My dad my dad's like eighty eight and the last time we talked we I I was in his house, and he was like. This. He said look at the bathroom lives in a miniature house. He said look at the bathroom, and I looked at his bathroom. And he's like, what do you think we could do in here? Can we like tear out these walls and Bubba? So here's what I'm saying. He doesn't like his bathroom, but he's he's powerless. Could we do he can't do anything? He can't was like looking at like, you're eighty eight you're going to do your first remodel. I mean, he's not going to do it. But I'm saying he's never lived in a house where they did the kitchen or the bad doom the bed Rovers never done a thing. He doesn't like it that way he doesn't like the way the bathroom, but he just lives in the house with them at your bathroom that he doesn't like in. That's it. It's a weird powerlessness. That drives me nuts. That's why always kicking everyone in the but going go get it. Go doing knock it out go deal with it and even say, all finance it. But you have to do the legwork. Yeah. I was my that was my old one that's off the table. Okay. No. Ever gonna do anything with his bathrooms is going to die in this miniature little house with crappy bathroom, he doesn't like I don't I have no idea. Why people are wired that way, especially when they want it. They want something different. They want a better different bathroom. They can't do it. And we're also living in a world where every time you turn on the TV there's some Home Depot commercial where like talking about redoing it, and it has to be something that you're aware of. But you have to be aware of it. Right. That's that's a lesson. We should all hope to impart and like our children. Anyone who listens to us, which is be nonetheless the ability. This are the town skill the ability to put your dreams or goals, or whatever it is into motion. You know what I mean the ability to act on your goals? Everyone has goals. Everyone has dreams hopes to act on them. That's what has I don't even. I would bring the bar down from hopes dreams or. Or even goal to. If you think if you have a thought and your thought is. I Mike car doesn't have air conditioning. I would like to drive a car with air conditioning or my bathroom was weird and small and not laid out correctly. I would like nice new modern looking bathroom that was much more ergonomic. If you have a thought if your thought is this is what I would like then you should again. It's not like I want to be the first violence and the Phil for Monica. I'm gonna play center field for the Yankees, just like move toil. I don't like the way my bathroom was laid down. Okay. Let's see if six months from now, I would be in a bathroom that I like if I'm bark on this journey today. It's pretty straightforward or you just never do it. Yeah. And then there's those who do do it just do it all day every day a million, and it's always accompanied with the worst sound on earth. That's side that passive aggressive side that you can't do anything about. So that'll anyway, dad will never get data. Go the grape, Nora Nora. Oh, right. Let's see. Yes. You did something that might be the most people pleasing thing I've ever done in my life. Hear that new front runner. Real quick. I was coming out of Ralph. And I was on the phone with my mom and a red Nissan came. I'm I don't know four inches away from my kneecap and almost screeched on the brakes involuntarily, I freak out. Oh my God. Jesus christ. And everyone kind of stares at me. And I was like kind of waved to her and moved on with my life because it really scared me, and she comes up to my car. She drives up to me, and she's crying. She's an older lady. She of course, she has the handicapped placard on her window. She's crying lady. I'm so sorry. Lady miss. I'm so sorry of society. The sun was in my eyes. So I now I'm getting upset. It's mother's day. She's older. She's probably a mom is not what you wanted to other day. I go over there. I go, ma'am. I'm fine. It just scared me, everybody's fine. And the more I say that the more upset she's getting. So I look, and I'm joking. I'm like, I'm sure you didn't plan on having a heart attack on mother's day's. Let's all take a deep breath. She she rolls her window down. I grab her hand. And like, ma'am, it's okay, I'm fine. She still crying. I let go of her hands. I back away from the car like two feet, and I start doing a jig like a dance. Look, look, zinc. If I wasn't fine. She finally starts laughing. And she goes longer way of training. Titan comforting almost killed me in the parking lot. It might be my new mothers. Good. Thank you, literally dancing. A jig. Are you guys with me that? I don't like it. When people turn their their bad into an overreaction in which case, you have to shift all the onus from whatever they did to try to comfort them for them almost killing you or screwing something up. It's it's not fair. There's such there's a real fine line between sorry won't happen again. And you must comfort me and tell me what I did wasn't so bad and that I'm a good person. Because now it's this weird. This kind of reverse narcissism earth. Like the victim is now comforting the aggressor because they're over there. Overdoing it on themselves. All right. I got Luca call to talk about max patta. Do you got? We got our clip got aren't prepared clip anywhere. Is that is that on the list? Whereas thing we have already here. Okay. But you should put it on your list of eighteen things on the screen. If you got it, right? Okay. Because we've got so many things on my screen that that's not on it. I'm assuming it's something wrong. Like, it's not ready like that. In the life advice mode. I was at Luca cult. I don't even know I'm saying, right? Just means air cooled there something and in German. They do this event every year where they have all these air cooled Porsches only poor shows only air cooled Porsches there are water cooled Porsches, but these are all air cooled Porsches. They I don't know how anything works. They get six thousand people to go to this event. They cap it at six thousand people there's no bans. There's no meet and greet with Mario Andretti. There's no anything there's just Porsches heart somewhere and people walking by the Porsches milling about just milling about the back lot there the back. It's the back. Lot of universal. They had it. They had it this year at the back lot. And again, there's no schedule. There's just there's some there's some taco trucks. There's a beer garden, and there's music playing through speakers. There's no live bands. There's no talks. There's no raffle. There's no schedule. It's just like ten AM to three and they do it once a year, and they sell six thousand tickets, and it's capped at six thousand six hundred people show up just to walk around their peers. All right. Max Pam, I'm guessing you have a picture my car somewhere in that that that pile. Oh, that's cool. So they asked for my car to to be there. And and there there was I think Porsche may be buying this whole festival now the thing that's diabolical about it is they don't pay you. And they don't pay for your transportation, everyone brings their own car. And they just charge the six thousand people come look at your car and everybody keeps participating everyone keeps -ticipant because at a certain point. Then you want your car to have that in its history. I guess, but anyway, as I understand it Porsche owners are like the most cultish now v most you couldn't do that someone with Jay you couldn't get like. You couldn't get like a Mercedes thing can get six people show up Mercedes owners, for example, or Alexis or whatever no nothing exact same thing. But the owners are. The portion guys have their own called you couldn't get six thousand people that go do that for look you couldn't do it for Lamborghini asked. Couldn't do it for Ferrari. I mean, they have a following. But not this kind of following an also, I don't even know the six thousand people even I don't know what percentage of even own a Porsche. I think they just want a lot of them. Just want to come out pushed a stroller and have bring the kids and some beer and walk around. So that was a good event. And so my my message of the day is get a Porsche get a portion. I've I've told people all the time throw party at your house once a year it forces you to get your ship it forces, you to clean up your house that that basket in the front entry hall with all the junk in it that you don't need or whatever the business cards and the pennies. You just you start sorting. You throw a Christmas party at your business. Once you forced to go round and start tiding up cleaning up organizing, whatever that is. I like to have. Dates? I like I like like they said, hey, can you bring your portion of Luca cult? And I was like well when is it, and they're like it's going to be the weekend of may may eleventh or whatever was as well the car's all taken apart now. So that's in two weeks because we're redoing all the geometry for this expansion the whole thing was taken apart. And so now we had a hard line. Like we had this this line of. Here's what we're doing. Here's when we're doing it. Let's go if it's always just net if it's a floating date if it's always just just kick. The can just kick the can. Most people don't like I think give and then give yourselves little dates like the whole the whole time in life. Just give yourself a want this done by this thing. And it's a way to. Fool yourself into getting things done or the word isn't fool yourself. But it's mean like all all order stuff online. And I'll go once that stuff coming in they'll go Wednesday. Okay. I want it done by Friday. Why no reason just lots of little incentives are little milestones ago done by blam you impose deadlines yourself. Yes. I think I'm supposed to be done by whatever day great. That's great headline. I'm wondering, I'm kinda wondering do you think? Like, I don't know. What percentage have people have imposed New Year's resolutions on themselves? I'm not a New Year's resolution fan. I'm a fan of people thinking about it like I on your radar. I know a lot of people that have no thoughts about it. And it's like why don't you have thought about losing ten pounds or being bring on time or just whatever quitting eating dessert for a period of time or whatever it's like, don't why don't you have self-improvement thought to me? It's just a sort of thought experiment, and again, I don't I don't think it's like a cross. I don't think it's a cross the board. But I do think I kinda separate people into folks that have New Year's resolutions. Even if they don't even if they fail and those who have no thoughts just never a thought. And I wonder if the people who do New Year's resolutions also imposed those timelines like that time grade. I'll do I think anyone will do it when you're like like if I'm on the rowing machine and it gets to going to get to thirty minutes on the rowing machine. Like last ten seconds. Gotta get it over thirteen thousand RPM just weird clock. Yeah. Everything Certa clock time numbered. Here's how long. Yeah. Is that those milestones? A little goals. It helps you get larger goal, and it feels good. It's a little bit selfish because you you can feel that much more accomplished in a day when you're basically doing the same thing putting like accomplishable things little things on your to do list or those goals because once you check those, oh, it's like momentum. Exactly. Oh. Mexa patta somebody somebody tweeted me Garcetti at USC with his commencement address. Or whatever it was. And I was laughing about it because he he so off. He's here's what I'm saying. I'm sure our our mayors the nicest guy in the world, but this isn't the guy you want solving homeless traffic problems or congestion crime. It's not he's not that guy. He's the guy you'd want to watch your kids. If you're going to go kick the tires on some local Kabun, and you're thinking about moving in with your lady, this is the guy you'd want coming over in hanging with your nine year old while you're out of town for two days, but not the guy you'd want solving a traffic problem who it just just this like just simple things like this just the simplest things. It's happened. We've all had that thing. It happens when you come home from the comedy store, and there's like one of those left turn EROs that's going up Highland or LeBron or whatever it is. And you're going down Franklin. But that thing where you're sitting there in the aero turns green in your eleven cars back, and I swear to God. You don't move for a long period of time. Now, you could move like a chain. Meaning the first person could just go, and everyone could just could just simultaneously like like if everyone just went arrow green. Now, everyone goes simultaneously. But I mean, you just sit down, and it's like, okay, I'm physically not moving and it's been some time. That's not about widening the roads that's not about more legislation. That's it's not about technology. It's it's sort of a general wariness K everyone up here. Here we go go. Here we go. Everyone goes I I had a guy. That person who didn't go into the intersection and the light cycle and the person Adam and they never went out. And then it just turned red. And we all just waited again like. How much of this is that like how much of it's just bad inefficient. Just I still just over where I live like. On foothill by where I live. I've driving sunny back from basketball game or something. And there was piles of cars going the other direction and sure enough somebody somebody's bumpers had made contact in the left lane. And the guy was out of the car and the traffic just went all the way back five blocks your car's fine, just pull over pull over don't get out in the middle of the street and start talking to people about or just about the chicken ship cops like sometimes driving home. It's like a bunch of traffic. Where'd all this traffic? I'm from oh guy. A cop CHP pulled the guy over by the side of the freeway, and everyone's like rubbernecking get off the fuck it freeway just make a policy you pull somebody pull someone over. I don't know why you're pulling them over but first off ramp turn, right? And they with their little bit of that's on us. Who cares? I never ever need to slow down to see someone get a ticket. I it's ubiquitous here. And I agreed is on us. But once we understand this is how us does sounds like a new. TV show. Does. So this is how does okay get it. Now. See HP, no more pulling anyone over during these hours on the freeway. You get off the freeway. Let the citizenship. No. Then you pull up sorry. I theory, and I'm very convinced of this. I think it's all of this. Whether it's not not moving on the green arrow kind of just taking your time not pulling over not. And when you're tap, the bumper whatever it is. It's all a symptom of out of it populace. We have a very outta vary. What percentage of under this roof one hundred percent hundred ten percents look at our phones at our red light. It's just but people do now. And now you're caught up because you're not paying attention light turns green the technologies catch up like how about like when the light turns green, a little a little a little audible something flash. The Sunday, something salt do address this new technology. This is this is the last eight years. All right. Here's Garcetti talking US. Puss? But to the graduates, I say you belong to USC. But USC now belongs to you you belong to Los Angeles. Los Angeles belongs to you you belong to this world. But this world also belongs to you. That's when this campus has been at its best that as we as human beings are at its best my wishes that you never feel that you don't belong and that you intern never let anyone. What else feel that either? What the fuck is about you belong. Come on. Pat, fuck and Benneteau that she'd get the traffic going to. These I so I know I'm a heartless robot from the bowels of hell, I don't know what people are fucking talking about. I just don't know what they're talking about like when you belong, and I belong we then we belong and word our best when we all belong so reach out reach out to those who don't belong land hand to those who don't have a hand who don't who do to belong but can't belong. Find those in your community who don't belong and ask them to join you in belonging because together, by the way, I just I don't fuck. The listen to anyone and says because together together we belong to the night we belong to the night. So together, we're stronger together we belong and if together we. Set our hearts and our minds hearts and our belonging minds. Hearts and minds belong to our hearts and our hearts belong term minds, and you belong to the campus of cow state Northridge and cow state Northridge belongs to you. And we belong to Northridge Northridge belongs to the San Fernando Valley. And then the San Fernando Valley belongs to Los Angeles incorporated in parts of Santa Monica. If we feel we all belong together. Then we're all stronger when we belong here. We've had we've had candidate platitude coach plot think we have commencement speaker to sh-, I don't know what you're saying get the fuck and traffic and the homeless fix. Would you believe such a pussy drool tool to fucking guy? You went running your city even know what he's saying. I'm sure somebody who makes scented candles wrote that for him and went here just read this shit. It's a fucking bladder to that means nothing. Thing you be telling people get the fuck to work. It's graduation card Jesus. I want to hear one more time because copped out at the end. Ball. And by the way, to we need that fuck and have the mayor give this speech. I can anyone give this fucking speech twins that could give this speech. I'd like sunny to graduates, I say you belong to USC. But USC now belongs to you you belong to Los Angeles. Los Angeles belongs to you. Whether you tired of that belong to this world. But this world also belongs to you. When this campus has been place. What the fuck is he talking about? Now, let me tell you why he's a big sack of fucking retarded douche because he should look at that. And go, I don't know what this means if I mean, if you fired it just doesn't mean anything doesn't I'm not gonna make an asshole out of myself talking in circles as even if it's vanity. It's like, I don't wanna be seen giving the speech. Look like a fuck and week puss who doesn't. I don't know what we're talked as a fucking these platitudes. This is a long Posey. This is like if you took a fortune cookie and put hair on it. So it looked like a snatch. This is what would come out of. Okay. Thank you already kinda slow cooker put. All right. Sorry continue mex- passer. Belongs to you. That's when this campus has been at its best that is in we as human beings are at its best my wishes that you never feel that you don't belong. And that you intern. Never let anyone. I don't know why goes white stops at the sales feel that either. Why is it was it stop at the same point every time? I don't know. But I feel somebody sends me just watched it. I watched it to my own this morning. It was fine. So just stop brain them late the same one more start in the middle of ROY you rip it. All right. Let me tell you about when I got bed online dot A G. May start with a ton of sports excitement. NBA NHL playoffs. MLB NBA.

That's Ben online dot a Jeep, right? Let's see we rip that thing. It's written ready height more ready than ready here. We go. But to the graduates, I say you belong to USC. But USC now belongs to you you belong to Los Angeles. Los Angeles belongs to you belong to this world. But this world also belongs to you. That's when this campus has been at its best. That is in we as human beings are at its best my wishes that you never feel that you don't belong and that you intern never let anyone else feel that either rice. Let's hope that guy nevers in charge of any fuck and construction project preach battleship anything that needs to work. I mean at the fuck that guys talking about. I'm fucking I'm angry. I went I went fucking problem solvers. So what's I thought that I previously had witnessed the worst USC commencement speech? Ever. When I was a senior Michael Eisner was the keynote speaker, he never Zavala two about business. He does. But he's also kind of a buffoon just kind of foolish and his speech. First of all, the gist of the speech was I lost my speech on Email last night. I lost it. I deleted it. Somehow. I'm too old and stupid understanding Email two thousand and I've deleted it by accident. So my entire speech is going to be about the perils of Email. How difficult technology. You're captive industry. Ula, whatever's Disney whatever the food's going on about Email together an anecdote about I don't know relation. Did you feel like you belonged belong? We'll say we'll win was at its best. Brutal. So would you rather have the buffoon who talks about how we how it can't get a speech together or have the products? I'd rather have vague platitudes. Because at least you have to kind of look within yourself. That's embarrassing. What you experience is just bad. Okay. Yeah. At least make you feel good. Feel good component to them. Everyone paid all that money. Just talk about their young not working. I don't I don't know. Like crosby. I don't mind vague platitude. I mean, I don't mind the one foot in front of the other or the journey of a million miles starts with one step or whatever. Those kinds of things are stitching time or penny. Saved penny earned like I don't mind that kind of stuff because that makes sense to me. Like, it's true. If you save a penny or you earn a penny. It it's the same. I like that. I like the stitch in time, which is like go to the dentist and pay for that cleaning. Otherwise, you're gonna need to root canal. It's going to be expensive. I love all the journey begins with one step now because anyone is done a break project or built the house or pops Corolla remodeling, yet another bathroom, he'll tell you that that journey is the first time you slam the hammer into the drywall, and he start demoing out the bathroom out to the where that stuff's. Okay. It's it's sort of no dub. But it's I don't know. In a way. The stuff our grandparents would say sort of made sense, even if you'd heard him over and over again, like my grandfather would say little things that I always liked he'd say like a new broom sweeps clean, and I'd like was that mean he'd be like if you have somebody? It's like it works in every relationship like we've been married for twenty years. Like if you start a new relationship everyone's everyone's into it, right or new employees to brooms. I used to think it worked that way of employees. But there's a different. There's an different thing. Going the corporate takeovers and radio. Yeah. Room sweep always makes me think of but you need to belong or look in your heart to find. If you belong it doesn't that doesn't mean mean anything? So now, the the platitudes, and I don't know if those things were. Fell under the heading platitude years ago like wisdom. Yeah. Pieces of wisdom. Anyway. All right. Let's take a quick break. I got some listen Milano news got the Subaru update. Unprepared. Clip got all that. Irwin Winkler clip. Oh, the producer because producer in the world. We'll do that. Right. After this. I can't believe it that Philip brought his little brother on our mission into orbit how long until it got their loan. We get there. I'll learn to get there. No. I can't believe how easy it was to save hundreds of dollars on my car insurance with gyco. What's this button? Do what's this button? Do what's this button? Do visit. Believe at Geico could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. Thursday night at Tenny, Corolla drinks presents the booze and book club. We got incoming Ray warned through the radio. It looks like gunships three of them about ten miles out. Get the hell off the road. Everyone will take cover in the mountains came Chris's order. I began to feel the bass in vibrations in the ground and off of this around mountains before I heard anything, but I had been on the giving end of enough helicopter infiltration missions to know, what was coming. I held my rifle close in squeezed my pouches to make sure I had plenty of ammo on me about that. It would do any good if the gun ship spotted us here me read from Robert Patrick Louis the pact. Enjoy a signature may agree at cocktail. Enter to win a pair of JBL one. Oh, four studio. Reference monitors. Visit JBL pro dot com and hang out with all the literary fans of the Adam Corolla show. Corolla drinks presents Tenny boozing book club Thursday night. Tenny downtown, Los Angeles boozing book club dot com. Get the pact now on audible, and I tunes. In the spirit of Murrow Jennings. Cronkite. Here's another rate moments in local news. This man reportedly told women he was in the entertainment industry police say he's really rapist. That's a great moment in local news now back to the atom coolish show, but you could be based on recent history. It's very doable tied together. Totally do. All right. Let's see. I'm going to be at the brea, improv this Friday and Saturday night doing a couple of shows with Adam raise so two shows Friday, two shows Saturday come on out and say, hi, we got a clip of unprepared from where is this mex-? Patta. This is from Sacramento with the F eighteen fighter pilot, Tom. And what is the theme of this one? Okay. So you got the word Jenkin, and you had asked the audience what that meant. And here's I don't know what it means. Oh, so what it means is a drug that when you poop and UP into a jar. And you put a balloon over the jar unleaded for men to the sun and inflates, and then you inhale that that air, and you get you high. Yeah. It's it's a really gross drug that was really popular like south central Africa for while. But ferment a lot of things. Yeah. Okay. So Jenkins in weird. It's not a drug in the sense that it's like a byproduct. Right. Poop and pain the sun funen, you inhale that. Yeah. It's it's a way to get high. But yet not technically a drug. All right. But. So somebody was talking to me. And I think the person said it was like prune, I was like prison, whatever. But I guess it's prison away to get high in prison. All right. Jenkin who? Jank jank J E N K E M. What's jank? Know what that is. It's prison wine. Bruno Bruno listen this about prison in wine. There's a lotta shit going on in prison like these guys are making their own wine. These guys are giving themselves homemade tattoos. These guys are fucking over here. Mike thing is like I didn't courage all of that. You guys are gonna fuck and get loaded jump in your car. T-bone a bus with special needs kids in it. Well, what better place is to be drunken prison? Look big about all the shit that goes wrong in your life because you drink too much Oll LTd when you're in prison sound like what happened. All man, I got fucking so drunk. I couldn't play handball. I could barely find my cell. You can't fuck and drive. You can't buy shit online. Like, you can't do the shit. I do where it's like four the morning, and you're on Amazon, and you're like. Like what? You're drunk shopping on Amazon echo double decker catch stroller. Seems like a good bye. Will. Yeah. I don't have pets yet. But if I do wanna be solely hundred sixty nine bucks, you should be able to be drunk when you're in prison. They should buck in handout, they should hand out condoms and cock rings. They should hand out. There should be a buck and tattoo a room over there. You shouldn't have to make jank or pruneau in your fucking toilet. Oh, well, we got to the toilet at some point. It's the best place to be drunk prison. Yeah. Controlled environment. Yeah. And in terms of like, I dunno. These guys could get a little out of hand if they got drunk. I feel like they've proven themselves to be out of anyway. Either way. Right. I gotta listen Milano update. Tweeting we got the it's awesome. But it was more that there was there's a feminist. I think feminists that had a sort of thoughtful answer to her tweet. I thought was was interesting. Let's see. Well, we'll take a look at that. Let's see she's done a thing. She's now starting. Can I say this? I don't know who listen Alana's married to. But I have thought I don't know if you guys have that thought. But again, I always kind of say when the guys wearing the ostrich skin purple hued cowboy boots or turquoise colored or whatever kind of go. What's the whitening doing? The wife isn't saying something defense leave the house, and you know, like alyssum Alana when she's like I'm going to start a campaign. A boycott on snatch. I'm gonna start a nationwide came no sex until George overturns borsch. It's been I I don't know. What's the husband? So here's the choice for the husbands. The husbands are either. No dominion over who they're married to. And I believe everyone. I don't know why there's a thing where it's like. The wife can say all day long. Oh, honey. You're not going out that sports go. Oh, no, no, no, March, go back and change your myself. Pack somehow if the husband makes a comment to the wife about that. It's like, oh, please come on just married to an ogre married to Andy cab. And it's like. Well, I think it's kind of a two way street. I feel like my wife can tell me things like don't do this. And then I'm allowed to go with them. Don't do that. Like isn't expected of husband allowed to go. Just you know, all and then people are going to go online. It's going to be shit storm. Maybe our daughter reads a couple these, and I don't want first of all I respect the hell out of your passion. Right. But house docs, right, right? Yeah. Just kind of that just can we just fly under the radar for a couple of months anyway, her tweets answer to that tweet was what she said, our reproductive rights are being raced until women have legal control over our own bodies. We just cannot risk pregnancy. Join me by not having sex until we get bodily atonomy back. I'm calling for hashtag sex strike pass it on. I hear these things that I read these things, and I was actually listening to one what Dr drew, which is if you do my challenge, which is if you just fell asleep in nineteen ninety eight and you just woke up and you turn on the news and Cory booker's on the news. And he's like we have a racist in the White House who won't sleep until all people of color all Brown. People are put out on the streets. QB you'd be if you just woke up he'd go. This is going on what's going on. And then they go, look if this guy loses the election. I don't know if he's leaving. He may call the sergeant of arms to fight against you'd be watching going. What's going what's going on what's going on? And if you read this tweet like if you read the tweet just everyone now put it through the filter of you fell asleep in the eighties, and you just woke up or the nineties just woke up read it again. And here's where we're at in two thousand and nineteen reproductive rights are being raised until women have the legal control over our own bodies. We just cannot risk pregnancy. Join me by not having sex until we get bodily atonomy back. I'm calling for a sex strike pass it on if our choices are denied. So are yours. I woke up I'd be like what's going on? I've been nine reproductive rights vigorous some sort of handmaidens tale. You know, like just hope you like what what? Well, that's why you didn't even call it. The right name. Yeah. Yeah. I'd say the same thing. And then I'd be like who's talking while this Schober forty eight year old educated woman is talking. What's going on? What's going on? We have a racist won't really if the White House. It's not going to sleep until putting a target on the black people. Now, this we're taking over women's reproductive rights, and somebody wrote there was a thoughtful tweet by I don't know feminists next door feminist, I guess so yes, you can raise says, please stop feeding. The narrative that women are providers and men are consumers of sex bribing men for equal rights with access to our bodies is not how feminism works. It is an interesting conceit, which is will give up sex glut. You have let your. That you actually a tale as old as time because there's a very famous Greek sale. Call listen Strada. To where this is exactly what the women of Athens due to stop a war. So this concept has been around for a while. But I think we have better options. Now other people were pissed because they're like, why are you? Why are you? Propagating the narrative that there's no such thing as birth control. What what what is this tweet? The I don't know. It's not well thought out also again, I came up with a smash hit called coming on the tits, and this wouldn't fix this would remedy everything. Join forces fantasy Wales from North Carolina's twenty four well. Adam how you doing good? How jana? I'm just a big fan of y'all. I was just I heard the other day that you endorsed Andrew Yang. And I like him a lot too. And I've found that really interesting. I didn't know if you want to expand on that a little Well, I I off I'm not pompous enough to endorse anybody because I feel like who cares? What is? Number one. I he Andrew Yang has a. Universal income thought which is a bad thought. I don't think giving everyone thousand bucks it's sort of. It's sort of like it's like homeless people. What don't they have homes? Give them a home. It. It seems like a remedy like four people. What don't they have money give money? And it's like it's not how things work it's sort of like saying this guy's a D student. Good make a report car where he has as and give it to them, the reverse engineering of this stuff. It's always disasters always unintended consequences. It never fix is the underlying problem. And then everyone just has another thousand bucks a month. You're still equally poor you now have thousands bucks a month. Same person's equally poor has a phone that Elvis would have paid ten million dollars for in nineteen seventy two. So what does it even mean? Anyway, I don't agree with this universal basic income. I guess everyone over eighteen gets a thousand bucks a month. No question asked. That. That's I think would be there Daywear people that already received government benefits so say if you get welfare or something for three hundred a month, it's an often. So you have to opt out of that and get the at thousand a month, and we already spent like over a trillion dollars every year on services like that over two hundred forty programs varies arguments, both ways, and I agree with you wholeheartedly. Don't just give people money and expect everything to work out. But I did hear him as a candidate talking about a plan in a policy, and it sounded like something it wasn't just calling everyone a racist who disagrees with them. I I liked the notion that he is discussing ideas he was talking about. All about ideas. He isn't talking about identity politics. He is he's not about any of that. He's it's almost like he's ten years ahead of everyone. It's like the smart Asian dude has some plans out, and we're just not ready for it. Almost feels like as a country are. Well, well, you know, I said love the Asians. I always say they the Jews their family their education, the income of focus on on excelling. And all that I've always described them as Jews with exceptionally good balance. The Asian Jews have no bound, there's no, oh, she that you acrobat team at the circus now. No that the Chinese the flying. Goldberg's. I'm a big fan of half the stuff the Asians do like Andrew because when they're bad like Donna summer says they're also bad. They go sound. Go hard. Okay. But when they're good. They're actually we like the hot stuff. Yeah. So I like I like, Andrew and totally I have them on. I think you would come on your program. You know, he's a California. Where's he from? I'm thinking to California silicone valley area possibly oh. I think he's from New York. I think about it. We'll see we'll see if we can we'll see we can get him on. But he's he's grabbing me. Adamy on best, man. Thanks. I just went nuts and bolts, and he's talking nuts and bolts, and I like that. And he's actually apparently pretty confused right now as he should be because I like I liked what he said, and I was looking into him. And I don't know if there's enough of these numbers to really matter. But apparently all right dudes are getting behind him, which you think would be a little bit counterintuitive for Andrew Yang. But I don't understand it. And he apparently neither does he when he was asked about he's like, I don't know. I'm pretty confused. I'm not sure greatest if I were David do I would make money getting paid off not to door Smith like it happens every year like David do because endorsed you. What do you say that? I don't know. I don't know him. I didn't ask him to do. Well, he did it like, okay. He is leaving money in the table. And maybe Ted Nugent as well. But I didn't know all right guys. We're going I. They call themselves the Yang gang. God. Yeah. Just just because he's such a force on the internet. Everybody knows them like a lot of. All right guys are re tweeting his is this stuff because he's suggesting this thousand dollar dividend thing to everyone not certain groups over others. They like that. They like that everybody. Okay. So I'd bucks like Oprah thousand bucks, and you get a thousand and you see should I get an monogram Qatar cigar tip cutter or new Swizzle stick Suisse's choice choice choice. Yes. Right. If this ever goes down, I'm going to start a blog of how I wasted my thousand dollars, and I'm going to piss off everybody in the world. I'm going to show you a picture of me, but the cat stroller. The wonder my or whatever I've done stuff that I bought that. I'll never. Yeah. Sushi's? No good. 'cause I might consume respite all these stuff. I'd never you. Right. Right. You know what? I mean. Yeah. I have to lightness with the check you know, that kind of stuff. That's good. All right. Well, maybe we'll get him on. Where's he out of Andrew Manhattan? Okay. Well, you're going to New York the far as I can tell. Yes. Far as I can tell he's the only one who's. Talking sort of nuts and bolts stuff. I mean, Bernie does but his nuts and bolts is pie in the sky. Everybody should get everything all the time like this guy. And also the thing I liked I loved about his answer is when he was talking about getting Amazon or Delta Airlines or whomever stop going off shore and start paying their taxes. And I just love the library when they're doing their job. They're doing what they're supposed to evil. There. Have their job is to save the money. Yeah. Our job is to get money from them. So let's try to figure this out so far they're winning. As I always say, you don't think the guys who run in started Amazon are smarter than the guys who run and started the DMV. You don't think this group is smarter than this? You the pudding run a city, and we can't get the signals timed and there's homeless everywhere these guys run Amazon, Delta Airlines. Yeah. I'll bet you. They're better things than you. And I bet they there's more skilled, and they're they're brighter have more cunning. So if are playing this to outsmart these guys to get money from them. I don't think that's going to work full. We need to just put a basic thing. Which is you make a buck. You give us thirty cents or what whatever super hard basic thing because the more paperwork, we give them the more loopholes. They find in that paperwork and the more they do with their good at which is saving money and they're smarter than. We are. And they're motivated the smart and they're motivated. So how's this has this ever gonna work? So since that's ever gonna work just tack on whatever percent every widget they sell and we'll collect that. All right. Let me tell you about Castrol edge. She skies. Her smart motivated, heat friction viscosity breakdown. Rob your engine of maximum performance. Friction results in a loss of reforms up to ten percent Castrol edge formulated with fluid titanium technology three times three times stronger against discussing breakdown leading oils. Castrol edge, you should unlocked the true performance in your car's engine with Castrol edge. All right. Quick break. We come back, and we do news when we come back news right after this. -nology truth. Brought to you by Geico. Truth. You think you can solve any problem by turning computer offense on Heyman something through laptop? Now just need to turn off and on. It smoking. Yeah. That's needs to boot truth so easy to switch and save on car insurance at geiko dot com. In Nelson, fire happens all the time. It's all good. Geico. Fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more Trump and Democrats. I'm Ed Donahue with the AP news minute. President Trump thinks congressional investigations need to stop looking anymore. This is all it's done done because of the end of the Russia investigation. The White House has been resistant to cooperate with Democrats investigations in congress on Fox News. The president was asked if former White House counsel, Don Mcgann will testify head him testifying already thirty hours. So if the answer really, so I don't think I can let him and then tell everybody else you can't Torney general William bar said no to testifying yesterday before the House Judiciary committee. You testified Wednesday before the Senate Judiciary committee and house speaker Nancy Pelosi says bar was not truthful attorney general the United States of America is not telling the truth to the congress of the United States, that's a crime. And the Justice department responded saying the allegations by Pelosi, a reckless and faults House, Democrats are poised to whole. Old bar in contempt of court can can for congress. I'm Ed Donahue.

The magic of Software Defined Radio with Ben Hilburn

"As a software. Engineer, chances are you've crossed paths with mongo DB at some point, whether you're building an app for millions of users or just figuring out your side hustle. It's the most popular non relational database, mongo DB intuitive incredibly easy for development teams to us now with mongo DB atlas, you can take advantage of mongo, DB's, flexible, document, data model as a fully automated cloud service, mongo DB, atlas handled all the costly database operations and Adleman tacit, you'd rather not spend time on like security, high availability data recovery monitoring, and elastic. Scaling, try mongo DB atlas for free today. Visit WWW dot mongo, DB dot com slash cloud to learn more. That's mongo DB dot com slash cloud. Hi, this is Scott Hanson. Today and talk with Benny Dover. President at the new radio project, and we are both very excited about software defined radio. And you found me because I was geeking out about how great it is. Yeah. I spend a lot of time geeking out about SAFA radio on Twitter. So I was very excited to see you do the same. Yeah. Whenever someone discovers a new kind of calling at a new Hello world. You know, because we spend all this time teaching people how to do. Hello world by them. You know, out putting a text to a console and then we wonder why you know, why is this thirteen year old child not excited about software. We just said, Hello world and a console isn't that enough for you? So now I'm thinking maybe I can teach them by plucking signals off of the electromagnetic spectrum. Yeah. It's. It really is an incredible demonstration of technology and something you like when you do it, you, you mmediately feel a huge sense of achievement. So I have to go and talk to a bunch of kids tomorrow. I'm gonna talk to fifty kids between eleven and fifteen and I think they have probably talked about the electromagnetic spectrum, or at least they talked about visible light and I wanted to understand that. So there's the spectrum as electro-magnetic waves in this wide range of frequencies. And on the one end you get frequencies, a turn you into the hulk right? And the other other end your what looking at, like I dunno black holes would talk to me about the spectrum, and what what's in there, right? Yeah. So she said Letterman, expect from varies from what we would call for zero Hertz would call DC sometimes all the way up to. There's no no end to it. Right. But to give you some example, obstacle light is in the hundreds of terahertz whereas broadcast FM radio. You know that you would listen to in your car, for example, is in the, you know, high, tens low hundreds of megahertz so several orders of magnitude below that. So it's really just this huge range and contains everything from, you know, the emissions from black holes to, you know, the signal that your car stereo receives is wifi in there is. Yes. So for, for the tech focused out there, you know, it's called the SM bands. And those are with that means those are bands that you're allowed to transmit in without having a license. So there may most bands are protected so Verizon, for example, has to sit tell the FCC. Hey, we're gonna put up a cellular base station and we're going to transmit in this band, and we expect all of our users to be at frequency ex and that's a license for that. Well, obviously, you Scott Hanson did not ask the SEC for a license to operate your wifi router, and that's because your wifi router works in this unlicensed ICM band. And right now, the wife is typically around two point four gigahertz whore, five point eight gigahertz, which are two of the most widely used is vans. And so this is effectively real estate, right? I mean, just like we have the world and they always say, they always my dad always says, you know, invest in land, because they're not making any more of it. Are they making any more of this really? No, so for for decades and decades where a couple of decades now, sort of the wireless world has been. Freaking out about what's called the spectrum crunch, which is or spectrum scarcity which everyone's running out of spectrum right ever. So the, the problem with extreme so different free. This is let me know if I sort of dive way to defer. No. All stop you. Because no, I'm right there with you. But I get the idea that there's this range. Right. And I know that there's a lot of stuff that I'm thinking about, like, what's the IP six of the electromagnetic spectrum was, like, run into IP addresses, let's fix it. Light. So, yeah, the, the first key thing to understand is why the frequency matters, and it's because different frequencies have different characteristics in terms of propagation, and what, what I mean by that is when you omit signal at a certain frequency how and gets from plano where you transmitted it to receive or somewhere else is very different depending on the frequency at which it exists. So as an example, something that we would consider to be a relatively low frequency say, ten megahertz. All right. That those low frequencies can actually go very, very long distances. So sometimes you hear about amateur radio operators, who bouncing signals off of the moon and then to get them to the side of the world to talk to somebody on the opposite side of the world. You can do that with low frequencies. You cannot do that with much higher frequencies, because those higher frequencies experience what we call attenuation, which basically. Loss, power loss in the signal as it moves through space. Well, I just had a moment, so I have a two point four gigahertz, and a five gigahertz SS idea WI fi channel, and two gigahertz point four is not super high bandwidth, but it definitely goes out into my backyard and the five gigahertz one is really, really great and high-speed, but barely makes it you know, to the window. That's exactly right. And that's exactly what you're seeing is, you know, your five point eight gigahertz band, it's twice twice the frequency of two point of your two point four gigahertz band, and it does not propagate as far. And so what we've seen is with our existing technology. We are constrained to within a certain band of, of wireless frequencies that are consumer electronic devices can can work at so for there's, there's two ways to get more spectrum obviously. We can't invent more spectrum. I it, it is a thing. You know, it exists it's well, you can't make any more. You can't make you more numbers but you can add a lot of decimal points. Exactly. Right. So it's a fundamental property physics. Actually it's one of the four fundamental forces of the universe. So two ways to get more spectrum is you either use what we have access to more efficiently or we go up in frequency. So both of those are technology problems. And you know, it's everything from faster processors and more accurate would call analog digital converters or digital analog converters to they're able to pluck it out at a more fine grain like tweezers. That's exactly right. All the way up to, like applying artificial intelligence, for example, to figure out, okay? How can I more effectively share the spectrum with another user, interesting? It makes me think about how I just recently upgraded from one hundred Megan bit to gigabit Ethernet, but it's still going over the same collects cable, and that's the same collects cable that just brought me like regular old analog TV twenty years ago, thirty years ago, and trying to understand the cables, the same cable. It's still the same thing. But they've showed a lot more information in that little pipe. Yeah. And. What's, what's really cool is all of the physical concepts that sort of define how you're wireless signal works like your wireless wifi signal. It's the same thing in that in that twisted pair co ax. They're all this week. We call all of that are f- actually being radio frequency. So, you know, the internet connection you're getting through your cable is an R F technology, and your wifi router is also off technology just that one happens to be wired. And what happens to be wireless? Really? Okay. These are all just vibrations of the electromagnetic radiation. Whether it be through the air or physically on a piece of wire. That's exactly right. Invite? Vibrations is a good. It's a fairly good approximation. Right. It's like the, the deeper dive would be amended field induces an electric field which induces a magnetic field. I'm gonna go ahead and go with vibrations. Yeah. Indeed. I'm now when you look at this, at least when we look at this in school during the ten minutes that they talked to us about this high school. They always like to talk about the visible the visible spectrum, and, you know, depending on what, what bar chart they ended up showing you. They always say, look how small it is look, this is what's visible. And this is all the other stuff. Can I take a software defined radio and see light or does an SDR only allow me to see certain parts of the spectrum? So it would certainly be possible for someone to build a software defined radio that worked at optical frequencies, and that kind of that kind of exists in the form of like a fiber optic transmission, for example. But typically, when we talk about SDR, we're talking about, you know, commercial off the shelf software radio products, which are usually six gigahertz and below. Whereas optical light again is at hundreds of terahertz, so. You know, you can go on Amazon, and spend twenty or twenty five dollars and you know by a low cost software radio receiver. You're not gonna find something like that, that works local frequencies. And so I went and went to Amazon and I bought one for nineteen dollars, and it's so small, it, basically just looks like an antenna and a USB thing like it's almost so small that I it feels like there's just nothing in it. But air but then when I looked for software defined radio. I found ones that were three hundred dollar boxes five hundred dollar boxes. Varying levels of complexity. What is the difference between the nineteen dollar one or the one that just fits into like it's in the USB stick it still itself? Yeah. So the there are I probably know exactly the device for talking about, and kind of, to your point, you can buy a software radios that, that are twenty dollars and you can buy software radios that are in the millions of dollars. And so the, the difference is really in the pure in, in the fundamental radio capability that provides so the device that you have, for example, is receive only it cannot transmit true. It is a single antenna only. See you can't benefit from multiple antennas or multiple channels. The device, you have I believe is probably eight bit ADC. What we mean by the analog to digital converter. That is listening to the electro-magnetic wave that hits your intent and turning it into a voltage. Right. So our digital number that represents the voltage, so we're going from analog information to digital bits. It can only represent that voltage with eight bits of precision. Whereas if you were to spend a lot more money on a radio, you might get something that's producing that number with twenty four bits of precision. Okay. So there's in. There's all kinds of power amplifiers, and that sort of thing that go into making the difference between a twenty dollar receive. Ver- and a hundred thousand dollars receiver. I see. Okay. So then when I go and get I was listening to the, the news, the National Public Radio, and with, with eight bits I can go and get what two hundred and fifty a number from zero to two fifty five effectively, and with twenty four bit. You know, we're going off into space. We have just incredible amounts of Joos, sixteen million the Rangers insane from an unsigned integer perspective. L is very much creased. That's exactly right. And so that directly impacts the type of information you're able to reconstruct. So if you think about. So let's think about your voice. Okay. Let's say Scott. I'm gonna take your voice, and I'm gonna quantitites it with what I mean by that is unintended voice and defined digital values that describe your voice when you speak really lowly I'm gonna say that's ten. When you speak really high. I'll say that's the max. That's two fifty five. Right. Being giving giving myself, eight bits here. Right. So, but obviously, you're real voice is, is a continuous function. Right. There's not these individuals steps between levels. So there's loss of information here because I can't accurately represent the entire range of your voice lead. Let's say I take that from eight bits to ten bits now I have, you know, a thousand twenty four levels now I can represent more information. And so that same concept applies to communication systems. Okay. So you mentioned that the radio is small, it's receive only, but still with this little twenty dollars thing I was able to do a whole lot. Now. I did find that when I tried to listen to quote unquote, the radio and by that, I mean FM radio, I did have to kind of move it around. It felt like the old days where I was holding the intent up in the air to make sure I got a good signal. I wasn't picking up kind of like a lot without having to do a little bit of work. That's just based on the size of the, so there's a lot of factors at play there. And I'm not exaggerating. When I say many, many graduate feces and dissertations have been written about this topic. And so that's everything from when, when you when a radio signal is transmitted, there's not a single path that it takes to receive a right. It's bouncing off buildings and it's moving through trees, and it gets slowed down, you know, going through windows, so you know, depending on how you move your antenna around the signals that are incident upon your antenna. Anna vary widely. And that actually is even more effected by the frequency, at which your operating because the wavelength of a very high frequency signal by wavelength. I mean radio signals is moving through space. They actually can be. They have some, some amount of weight linked before the period repeats itself. So if you think about a really high signal it's you can think of it as scribbling really, really quickly up and down whereas the low frequency signal is sort of going up and down really slowly, it's going through space. And so as you move your Intel around, you're going to see different parts of a very high frequency signal differently than you'd see parts of very low frequency signal. So there's just there's so much complexity to something as simple as just moving your intent around and seeing how to fix the reception of the signal that you care about, it's interesting. I was driving a yesterday in Seattle, and I was using my GPS. And I'm in downtown Seattle. And if you've been down there, you know that the streets are quite narrow and the building should quite tall and driving and doing my thing and suddenly on the GPS, Mike car moved over to streets. And I was like, I guess I'm not where I thought I was is are the is the signal, the, the frequency of the GPS bouncing off buildings. And, and it just bounced in a different way. And I found myself elsewhere. Yeah. So it's funny because it g GPS the way that, that particular what would call wave form is designed. It is, is not terribly robust to working well in urban environments. It doesn't do wealth going through buildings. Bounces in weird ways doesn't it can't propagate through on Crete? So that's why you're in a parking garage. You know you get that. Okay. GPS signal lost message from your phone, and so, and that's exactly what you described his exactly right. We would call that multi path, where that GPS signal is, you know, bouncing off the urban environment. In, in what you are receiving confuses the radio. It decode the information just says, okay. Well, you know, I'm doing the best I can, but you're not actually getting what you should be right? And of course, you're picking it up from multiple satellites. So it's probably internally voting on what it thinks is going on. When they all when they all agree it gives you a general sense of where you are when they all disagree. It's like a good luck on way around Seattle. It GPS is inherently the way that GPS works is actually a time is time based system. Right. The GPS satellites, all they're doing is broadcasting their time their instantaneous time. So when you get into scenarios, like that sort of falls apart quickly. Yeah, your code is powerful, and so are you. And when you consider the reach of your coat, it's clear that to deliver quality code. You must also deliver secure code to work. Can you start a first step is getting yourself on basic secure coding principles and beginning to put these principles into practice every day. Verret codes secure coding toolkit is your go-to resource for all your secure coding needs the benefits of the toolkit include learning best practices for a secure coding understanding how to secure your DevOps environments and learning to combat the most common software. Vulnerabilities stay secure and download this valuable asset today at VERA code dot com slash toolkit. That's V a code dot com slash toolkit. So I got this, this little little radio, and I can go and install the software for it. And there's lots of different pieces of software for it, and it's people go and explore this, a lot of them will find or think that they have to pay to buy a package for this, but they don't necessarily have to buy a package once they've got their radio. Yeah. That's right. So the software radio community has really grown up around open source software. I realized that. It kind of it can feel it can feel silly to talk about software radio in using software. Whether it versus the heart device itself, it's probably worth real quickly just clarifying that by software radio. We mean hardware device, that is a controlled in used by software. Okay. So there's no knob on my on my device. That's right. So the way I like to describe this, and I realized, I'm sort of deviating from your question a little, please. But the so my favorite analogy for this is if you sort of think back to the way computers were, when they were first created in the forties, in the nineteen forties, where in order to represent some computation, a programmer, would literally flip switches plug wires into various ports to create an electrical circuit that represented the math that needed to get done. Right. And that has. As as computing has evolved at the point now where instead of having algorithms defined in hardware, we have general purpose processors that we've been tell what to do with software, and that's exactly the same thing. That's happened with offer radio. So many decades ago, you would build a piece of electrical circuit that did some radio function. And it would do that one radio function will now we build general purpose radio hardware, and we tell it, what to do and interact with it through software. Now, I'm just exploring this space, so for my the things that I was most interested in two things. And I thought they were kind of my two fun. Hello worlds. The first one was to just listen to the radio to plug it in and put in, like my favorite radio station at ninety one point five believe that make a hurts. Right. That's where FM is it's right. And then I can see it. And what was interesting. When I, I did that I'm here in Portland. So ninety one point five is National Public Radio. I could see the neighbor stations for the first time in my life, literally next door. Like, I know that their next door intellectualize that their next door, but seeing the kind of the bell curve, and then an empty space and then the other stations, one of them was rock music, and one of them was jazz, and they looked different like I didn't listen to them, but I could tell that, that's the rock station. Yeah, that is. So we in the radio community, especially in the open source world, we, we generally consider building an FM radio receiver to be our quivalent of a Hello world good. You did exactly what exactly what we would have told you had you asked us. And, yeah, exactly what you're describing. So what, what you're describing visualizing the frequency domain, right? Because what, what you saw is not how by thought how signals quote unquote. Look in the air. And, and so what you are looking at was a visualization of the power and the electronics Manetti spectrum a across different frequencies. And so you could see exactly what you described as radio stations positioned around, you know, the, the power levels going up and down and frequency is as your receiver saw saw things happening. And what's, you know, what's amazing about that, to me is actually Richard, Richard client has really great talk about just how incredible tremendous spectrum is because it's, it's just everywhere. Permeates everything it's, it's kind of like the force. Right. It's, it's, it's absolutely everywhere all the time and things are bouncing everywhere. And, you know, the air around you is filled with information and you know normally as a human. We do not have the, the sensors, quote unquote to be able to observe that. But using this software radio technology in an open source software, you're able to observe it and interact with it actually manipulate one of the four fundamental forces of the universe, and it's just incredible. I think why do people not to get too off topic. But why do people worry about the whether it be the microwave oven in the eighties? Everyone was like stay with the microwave the Mike, we will give you cancer or don't put the cell phone your head. There are dangerous electromagnetic frequencies, but are not the ones that we spend time in and hold near our heads, and sleep next to ones that are probably not gonna kill us. Yeah. So this is this, this is this is the realm of, you know, much. There's all kinds of conspiracy theories, and real science and pseudoscience and unfinished studies, the, the is a scientifically, scientifically accepted health, you know, health studies about this. And the key thing is all of the frequencies that were in acting with, you know, the or rather, all of the frequencies that we sort of blindly Transnet out into the open, like FM broadcast radio in WI fi. And that sort of thing, those are that's non ionizing radiation. So what, what we care about in terms of health is I and ising radiation, what we mean by that is ionized radiation is radiation, that when it hits the atoms in your body, you know, it can it can change it'll affect the electrons of those atoms, and that requires a certain energy level within that radiation. And so all of the signals that were talking. About don't have that energy level. They can't they can't affect the atoms in your body. Okay. So when we say, I as Asian to use it, an analogy over-simplifying, it's like these are ones that are energetic enough to cause trouble. And these ones are ones that were just passing through. And honestly, whether you decide to have wifi on your house or not. You're going to have these things running through your body all the time. Anyway, so it. Yeah, that's the what you just said, is how I wished I had described it. Now, the next step was I, I was at ninety one point five megahertz, and then I have an insulin pump, and I wrote an article about this, and it's also a wonderful article, and I'll make sure I put in the in the show notes by peach ram who used a software defined radio to decorum. What was happening at nine hundred fifteen megahertz which happens to be where my insulin pump does. It's radio frequency communication, and what I haven't succeeded in doing this, but I wanna figure out how to get the ones and zeros off of that wire basically see the packets going by I got it to the point where I plugged, the software defined radio in I can initiate communication with the insulin pump. I can see lights blinking on the pump and I can see the frequencies, and the powers change at that frequency. But I don't know how to get from there to ones and zeros. What's that leap? Yeah. So that's a really cool question. A. Also go ahead and take the second point out that nine hundred and fifteen megahertz is the third most popular, I assume band, so it's the sub gigahertz bailing. I found out that my, my garage doors there two which was surprising. That's right. It's also where Hugh member back in the nineties, and early two thousand we everyone had wireless hand held landline phones, and that's where those honoring. Oh, remember those were so bad did not work. Well, like terrible. But to answer your actual question. So what's interesting about what you just described. Is there actually to fundamentally different radio technologies? So what I mean by that. And so you actually describing a split between analog modulation and digital modulation. So when you did your when you listen to your FM broadcast radio right that Hello world. What that signal is, what FM radio is frequency modulation and to give this sort of the simplest response if you think about, you know, when you when you talk right? You see, you know, a wave that represents your your, your voice. Right. Right. And if allowed it's really all right? So what analogue modulations are is? They don't attempt to turn that into ones and zeros. It just takes that Ross signal that represents information in this case, your voice. What we call mixes, which basically means put it up at a certain frequency. So it takes your voice, which is at hundreds of kilohertz multiplies it up to ninety one point five megahertz and transmits it. So there is no digital information. It actually is your voice just multiplied up. So it's such a high frequency. You can't quote unquote. Listen to it without radio. What you described though at the you're the insulin pump. Now, I have I have to say, I have no familiarity with the particular device, you're talking about. But assuming it's a digital modulation it's entirely different. So what it's doing is, it's, it's taking the information that was to transmit, and it actually, is, you know, looking at it in terms of ones, and zeros turning that into packets in, you know, then modulating those packets and transmitting them. So when you listen to an analog modulation, you don't ever have to the only reason you would. Put it into one zero really so that you can do something with it on your computer. But if you had the right equipment, you could actually just go basically directly from intent to speaker because there is no one's zeros computation necessary because you're not my radio is not making a wave file out of bits. It's going analog and it's like there's no conversion here. Listen to it. Yeah. Which is making it. Yeah, you certainly can do that. And your to your insulin pump, for example, that actually is working with digital information. And suddenly, there's there's more complexity. Right. So now now we care about things like you know, how big is a packet. What is the header information on this on this packet? What if one of the biscuits, flipped through the air, Do I have error correction so that I'm must've that? Right. So the all these additional layers of complexity as, as we sort of, you know, advanced modulation. Yeah. It's really fascinating. So if I can if I can paraphrase what you're saying, and then add on how. The insulin pump works when I'm doing listening to the radio. Like you said, it's analog, and there's, there's amplitude there, where the power is giving me information, but not turning it into a number. But with the insulin pump. They're using what's called frequency shift kings, rather than going. And again, over-simplifying up and down. It's going kind of left and right. It's like, okay, I'm gonna stand a little bit to the left that'll be zero and I'm going to spend a little bit to the right that'll be one and it's dancing around that center frequency expressing the higher frequency, as a one in the lower frequency has zero. And then to go and solve the problem of did I miss something. It actually encodes a bit one bit with two bits use a singled, Manchester, and coding. So these are all ways to work around. It sounds to me, like, basically, this electromagnetic spectrum wasn't designed to shove bits around. So we're going to figure out how to put them in envelopes, and put them in preambles and put them in headers and, and shove them through this, this, this, this force is fundamental force of the universe. That's exactly. Right. Yeah. The white so working at our f-, which working at radio frequency, whether it's wired or wireless now wired channels tend to be a lot easier to deal with mud. There's, there's a it's very hard, right? It's kind of funny because the more sort of longer that had been in this field. The more incredible it is to me that any of this works at all the all the described all computers. This sort of all time you learn about, like one more thing. And it's like one more thing that these radios have to deal with to get a bit from the transmitter receiver like how, how did anyone ever make this work? How? In. That's exactly right. You know, every single impairment, you know, has has to be dealt with in some way for communicate communication system to work. So people should go to Amazon with a urine adult or a kid, or adult who has a kid or knows a kid and get start with a kit. Get an ST radio Guinness DR, other very inexpensive. They're super fun to play with. You can start at the new radio GM new radio dot org. And also it's worth pointing out that you're having a conference in Alabama in September so September sixteenth to the twentieth and twenty nineteen the new radio conference is happening. Yes. That's right. So we have a we have a yearly conference we've been doing it since two thousand and eleven. So this'll be our ninth year and you know, it's been really incredible. We first started out we were forty people sort of crammed into a classroom at U Penn. And now we have several hundred that come together every year from all over the world. And you know it's, it's, it's everyone. From a, you know, a hobbyist or student just learning just learning about radio or they're just interested in hardware interested in math or physics, you know, all the way up to people who you know, who been building these radios for decades, we were really incredible array of people. It's incredible place to, to meet the community in learn fantastic. And also, as you as you famously said that of all the four fundamental forces of the universe weak nuclear force gravity strong nuclear force in electro-magnetic, only one is safe to manipulate from home. So we should get an SDR and get involved in software defined radio. Yeah, I community is very welcoming and software radio can be overwhelming. There's so much to it but it's also incredibly rewarding and there's many people all over the world that, you know, all went to figure out this together and do cool things. Well, thank you so much. Ben Hilburn for chatting with me today. Yeah. This has been really great. Thanks for having these this has been that other episodes of Hansel minutes and see you again next week.

Now, this dude is a really really smart guys been around a really long time. He's the creative director hooligan industries, which means he's in charge of the gym Khana films. But also their video series over there. All the merch all Ken block's, branding, the close. This t shirt ideas. I mean, he's all of it is going through his head all the time. Plus, he's got some crazy car builds. He's always working on. And even before that he was in the magazine business zero to sixty magazine, and and even dunk box and bubble. He's just a really interesting guy. We have a really great conversation. Brian Scotto on the smoke tar podcast, the like, I don't mind going to a car show and running into people who watch us on the show and the talking to them and I replied to my DM's, I do too. Yeah. A lot of people extent. Yeah. It gets a little out of control get out of hand. I I don't mind. I really like it. Brian Scotto smoke entire podcast. This is the show, right? Got good audio everyone everyone. Hi, Hello lie. Folks. Welcome. It's up every we started a little late. He was fucking lake because he sucks that is true. I probably suck the traffic today. You are fully forget he's that. It's weird. How that happens in LA? I don't know. But the travel today is not to make the LA conversation where we bitch about traffic. But it's worse than normal today. If I have a car instead of a scooter over here, I would have been an angry young boy, by the way for those of you who don't live in Los Angeles. And I've never had a business meeting in Los Angeles. This is how. Every meeting in verse five minutes, we'll talk about traffic, and then you continue on with your meat totally because business meeting in LA if it's not in your office. It's half your fucking day. Oh, yeah. I mean my agent, you know, Hans shift, right? My agent at CA in century city. I got any. I guess I have a meeting with them that's half half day. Will the worst thing for us is we're in Long Beach. Yeah, you're gonna be like, hey, can you come over to Burbank, and I'm like, no, no, no. Yeah. Or fucking Hannibal. We care selling your show. All right, cool. Someone made a little tic TAC toe board of podcast tropes, and they're like today. I feel like a dick and made like all these this bingo game board of podcast tropes. And one of them was can I curse on this show? And there's you can play along. That's fun funny. It was only about only about five of the twenty five we're guilty of on this show. So I think it's pretty good. I'll be honest, I've been trying to curse less because our audience is actually really young. And so this happened with hurt. And I when we first launched on YouTube like we cursed all time and like hers like really bad sexual innuendos like not like like the jokes. I won't tell my mom, and my mom is still great like some great filthy jokes. But it's like that next level. Yeah. And I was kind of the mentality of like who cares like it's YouTube. That's what you about. And then and then hurt in Iran event in a seven year old kid came up to us. And I was like I watch everyone who shows and he's like I fucking shit car. And I was just like. Oh, that's I you guys have a much be I guess because Ken is pretty clean the can. Wiki is pretty clean and the things he does outside from shredding tires and all that you guys have pretty grimy. He's very we're definitely his band of grimy. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I I don't I really reject the you need to be kid friendly at for me personally. I'll I'll get comments Kirk Argo. I watch my show with your fucking kid. And I go you're torturing your kid. You're raising your kid, right? Yeah. I used to get yelled Africa sing lot. Guess what? Now, it's my job. Ever remember getting in trouble for her saying, oh, I definitely agree Catholic family those I definitely got hit for taking the Lord's name. And you got hit for saying damaged rulers grandma was more worried about them. My parents were my parents were extremely lenient about all the things that they should have been hard on me on extremely hard on me for all the things they should have been leaning really like what like I got grounded for two weeks once for sleeping above the covers. My dad's condo Attari com on or like, I gang sign isn't. Yeah. Exactly. Or like as a kid. I would where was this happening. I grew up in queens in Queens, New York. And my dad was my dad did did time in Vietnam military and did some like drill sergeant stuff? So he has a little bit of that about them. Did you see real early army type he could be it could be my my father is I love my dad, and my my dad and his father. My grandfather is the reason I'm in the car, but. My dad has to say because he's he's kind of a quiet guy. Like, he's not like me. Like, I don't shut the fuck up like you. And I this podcast. We're gonna talk over each other. It's okay. Like that right there for me. They're used to it anyway. Yeah. So, but my dad's a lot more quiet, but I've always said he has like an air of violence. Explain that like all my friends were scared of him. And I grew up with some thuggish kids in New York. Everyone was scared of my dad like he just had this thing about him. Yeah. So like you like everyone just knew he had a gun. Yeah. It was like it was like, and he wasn't going to shoot you with because he'd rather pistol with you. It's more fun. It's like that, you know. Yeah. So yeah. Did he did? But did Vietnam like fuck him up. He he got lucky. He he he got to. He was a scientist and was in school at the time. So he spent a lot of time kind of on the lab side of things like helping defend, you know, like dealing with like, chemical chemicals and stuff like that. Yeah. Same me. My great uncle dropped Agent, Orange out of helicopters. Not something I'm entirely proud of him doing things pretty fucked up. But yeah, he really enjoyed it. And went back several times to to to do repeat tours and drop more of it when he's gone. Godless, everyone gets tense even got to stick cancer from the fucking Agent Orange. You know, when I named my car, right? Nova napalm Nova my dad was like, you do know napalm. Cool. Yeah. It was like, yeah. That's not why named it that actually the the reasons a really cool name for a car. So I'll jump into the reason. So when you can give us a picture of anything, we want to talk about we can pull a picture video. Yes. Sweet broadcasting. I mean, what do you wanna talk about the star with napalm Nova? It's a cool car. So has the same kind of attitude as my FOX body had. Yeah. So one clapping about napalm Nova is that I grew up with German carcade. Right. So I mean. Yeah. VW water fast. I, you know, I think before we get to far into this. Like, should we explain some of our background because I've known you met you in two thousand seven about. Yeah. Right. Right. When I was launching zero to sixty magazine, I want to ask you about that. Because I am now getting really into print again like like, it's like print magazines like the records for me, like VHS tapes. I just got this magazine called the road rat from the okay, I've I've seen it looks really good. It's beautiful Lewis Hamilton on the comes. Yes. Arrive today, it is spectacular as far as car magazines, go. So I wanted to ask you about. How does one go about starting a print magazine? Well, I started print magazine when print still was making money. Yeah. So. Well, you know, it would zero to sixty it was really interesting because we were we kinda came in at a weird point because the magazine business had become like Schill anything you can put it on the crappiest paper possible, just as many edges you can run. And you know, that was what magazines became and it was just like simple and put out and zero to sixty. I was kinda like this magazine that bridge the gap to what the magazines or like almost books are today. Look at like triple zero and things like that triple zero is I think a great model, but it's like really like hall portion. You know, what I mean, it takes me seriously with zero six we wanted to just build something that you didn't want to throw out that was like we wrote like a quick little guide of like, these are the things that this magazine has to be, you know, obviously, the first one was like had to be like had to have attitude ahead of me like a bit. Fuck you had to not be the the buff books of the time right now, and but one of the first car gig as you have Cargill, I did I ran rides magazine. And I did like dunk box and bubble and I did a dunk box. Magazine. I was pretty deep in like the hip hop car world. Yeah. Totally by accident. Like, a grew up in New York City. I wrote graffiti when I was a kid, I got a I ended up getting a job angsty. Thanks. He isn't in banks. He doesn't wanna be knows real feed. He's a street artist different. But. I grew up writing graffiti and went to school for journalism, and a friend of mine was a designer at a magazine called mass appeal, and if you remember mass-appeal don't it was so it was the competitor for vice magazine, obviously vice did better vice one, oh if I want them by s- one that one. But yeah, you go dog box and bubble magazine. Yeah. That's actually, that's actually I left. But yeah, it's a it was a fun magazine make oddly enough h feature each major issue features a. I actually had some really really good times at the magazine. But so long story short. I get a magazine I get a job in a magazine that was like, primarily graffiti, and culture and hip, hop and all of that. And I wrote the car column because I was really into cars, and I new cars, and that was like there was a whole group of like media people around that who were do anything while cars and quickly. It was like, hey, can you write for my magazine? Can you write for my magazine? Like, can you do our column on this because like non car, magazines, like culture, cultural, and the reason is is because the still to this day the biggest advertiser in the world automakers. Right. So if you're G Q or your maximum or whatever like you still need to have a car call help support what you're selling. So before you know, what I'm writing for vibe, double XL complex like all these like street wear MAGS in New York City, and then I end up getting offered rides. And I was like, I don't know anything about being we. I don't even like chrome just like oh five. Right. Oh, three. Oh four. So it was really like when twenties went past twenty the beginning of the dubs and the Sprewell's and that whole thing and because set a fucking real Sprewell's would go for right down. Expensive, would I actually think that that's going to? I think it might like kind of like Ali come back like slightly ironic. Yes. Like, whatever the next version of RAD would is feature Sprewell's. And then they went the other way because those are the spinners they had spinners load sayers this loading so and then they had splitters, which if you yes, so rich spinners and floaters, and you just had to like move await. And they would either float or spins you can have like the wheels on the front floating and the wheels spinning of, but I will say doing a burnout with floaters is kind of cool. I bet you actually don't have to slow down. You don't have to use a fast. It works out. Really? Well, and the photo looks just like the video. Really funny. So. Yeah. Okay. So you're writing for rides magazine now. Yes. I mean, I'll fast forward this. Because we want to talk about cars, and this is cars where I'm working for rides. And like I was a kid grew up in New York. And I want to be a journalist. I wanted to be like a war reporter, I it's really weird that I got into cars and get your head blown off. And I I t to put that in without putting a somber note on this. But to to put a reason to that I was in journalism school on September eleventh, so growing up in New York that whole thing happened and all of like in journalism really had this crazy boom afterwards because it kind of really divided America in terms of the journalists who were like really trying to still tell a story versus just being like overly pro America. And like that like there was a huge argument was going on without getting into that. Like, it was just an interesting time to watch what was happening in in journalism. And instead I got into writing about splitters. That's instead where it went. But now, I really have topic. We're covering today. I got a I got into a got into the job, and I was twenty three or twenty four years old. And like I went in for the interview. And I thought they were going to offer me like an assistant editor position. And they were like you wanna be the senior editor of the magazine. Sure, I do. And they were like, this is your story. So Dennis page who was the publisher at the magazine like Dennis paytv was such an asshole. But God bless them. Like, I learned so much from them. So I walk in and like, I was working at massive hill for like nothing I had like a stipend that barely paid for me to get the red hook Brooklyn, which by the way, like red hook Brooklyn those before I ki- or anything. Wasn't super sketchy. And we were next to the methadone clinic like and anyway long story short. He says to me he says, well, what do you need? How much you need to make was like. I don't know I'll take like twenty eight thousand dollars, and he looks he goes. How would I give you thirty five and you don't come back for a year and ask for more money because I have no concept of what people were getting paid in that feel. I worked my ass off for that. And I lived in New York City for like no money like I was like working another job like pay for it. And like lived above a bar, which was has its upside. Yeah. For sure that you like spend half your rent, far, right? Yeah. But now, and it was a great opportunity, and it was actually like a kind of a ton of fun because it was that moment. I mean, you member Seema in that era. Yeah. When the wheel entire hall people were spending millions of dollars on boots rappers come out, and I became like really good friends with foxy Brown. Like, I would like foxy would like text me. And be like, hey, let's go get some talion food all up a Range Rover at my house, in queens, and a story and drive me too little, and it was like this really weird thing for me. Yeah. It was definitely I was I was out of like, you know, it was I would say to my comfort zone. But it was just something. I never. Thought you were the guy now the guy Whitecliffe let me drive his McLaren lady really kinda got Wycliffe had a McLaren f one that was an F one that wasn't. Fucking shit ya. And when I say when you say McLaren period, you mean, the F everything else you have to adjust. What you're talking say. Like, a Makah Fitna. Mclaren AFL, actually, so I don't I was only able to really I wasn't really able to drive it far because I can't get first gear to engage because my leg has. Probably forty forty. Second. There's why cleven is McLaren is that Zonda behind it? Yeah. Actually, that's from our photo shoot. I'm pretty sure because he was on. It's a Ferrari, right? It's sixty he had his onto at the shoot as well though. He did have his onto. Yeah. Yeah. I remember Garrett is you can't show YouTube. He's got a red there. It is that that's what we shot him with. We put him on the cover with the Zonda. That's awesome. Why cleft? So. Yeah. And that was a really cool time. But I really wanted to get back into like fast cars and performance cars. And that's what I loved. And you know, I I grew up a Volkswagen Cade and like ran a car club in New York. And did all that. And it was like and Mike, and this was like for anyone who knows Volkswagen's today like this is before like airbag suspension stances when like they were like the little pocket rocket Jettas were boxy. Yeah. We and we would go rip them in the canyons. And like that was part of the canes like the white bear mountain out here. Yeah. I'm I'm from rice. I those are my road air mountains where we would drive up to Long Island. We did you ocean Parkway highway racing on a farm. You used to do this thing called a full moon full-throttle cargo, and it was a really simple idea. It was the Friday closest to the full moon. We would meet in a rest up off of the the LA, which by the way, I realized other people meet at rest stops off the midnight, which was a whole other conversation, but sort of like a double bonus. At home. So we ended up we would meet at we would meet at midnight and foam full throttle. The whole concept, and we would go and rip the streets of you know, back roads, we would drive all the way out to not to Montauk. But like Riverhead river that side like exempt. You said to fast, and it was a ton of fun. And like, you know, surprisingly, we never like we had like one accident. We did for years, and we would run like one hundred and twenty cars like it was actually really really it was like, and it was before like target or any of those things. Well, I would do that. But New York motor club back in the day. Castillo like, you know, five oh six, and we would like send these kids in Honda's out ahead of us to radio back if there were cops and we'd fucking just mob like five in the morning on Sundays at one hundred cars. No one gave it was wild. No indict thing is when you're on like really winding road. You're not any driving a Volkswagen. You're actually not really driving that. Thousands. Right. This is like this is two thousand chip you gotta put it on. Yeah. And I always we're calling a guy because it's just such a weird way to say. Yeah. No, you're in a Volkswagen's that are you also knew that the HR sixty forty kit post picks. Just like never before. It's an amazing form because you go in and look like you're just looking at each Tim L. Just like white with incredible. How how forums just never changed? But they did know young kids are on the Mitch just because I noticed that like because I still use for them. So this day everything. And then I realized that like, and we all just like we're still here. One else is we were just talking about this last night with Jay Jason Kameda, how the idea of like a car show like when we were kids it was chevelle and Bellairs. And now if you go to CarShield, it's chevelle Zain Bellairs, it just never fucking change do op music and shit with the forums are that. Except except grad would. Yeah. Is our generation car show. Yeah. And it will make it will go into Redwood. Oh, hell, yes. Number second. Not only that I'm hosting the pre Radford party at my house. You should come to. Sweet. So yeah, you can live. You will have walked I've got my Audi running. Yes. Which how long was that thing sitting ten years, it's ninety. So it's my Audi coup. Fucking toby. And here it is there. It is look how much dust is. So I got it running running a good. So I'm going to stock ish. No its stock engine currently. But I'm Bill actually Tim's building motor for. Yeah. So like a five cylinder. Yeah. Because you know, the first fucking thing about buildings. So have you met Dmitri FBI? He's the new he's one of their new engineers either five cylinder guys a five. Cylinder. God. Right. Yeah. All right. I like to see this'll be fun because I sent I sent Tim FOX body. And he was all I worked on these in highschool. I know what I'm doing. Had like an old Mustang. He used to drag racing almost they they did a good job in my God. Did a great job. I love you sold that thing. I did for charity. Oh, that's cool off our sixty five grand. That's right. Yeah. Tomorrow morning. I'm giving half of it to the Peter zippy memorial fund, which is an animal shelter in Hermosa beach. Like animals, one of them people me too. I'm so glad that the the winner got to choose and the winner elected to give it to an animal shelter 'cause they know like animals so here. Oh, so the winner got the pick all that. I'm bring a trailer the winner chose the charity could have gone either way. But it went the right way. Oh, that's cool. Yeah. Now's a cool vehicle and now it's leaking safari car. That's the daily purple purple leaking safari. That's pretty much do across there. It is. We should do crossover. That's low versus high. Well, your car. That's that's right. It's cool. It's pretty sweet respect bucket. It's such a bummer because when I bought my nine eleven they were like, really cheap, right? Yes. And years like a special one to it's an an mile turbo. I bought mine for their it as Brian has a was was this the first art WB America, one of the first two so mine and marks are built at the same time. So Mark arsenal from illest fat lace. So he built the green one I built the white one. And but Mark like changed the kid backdated it painted different caller. It's like a totally different car now. So sort of mine has now just become. Yeah. By battlefield promotion. The first car, and yours yours, you know, a lot of people including myself have shit on various aspects of our WB not because of his work, which is stellar, but because people do the fucking kit and then nothing else. Yours is fast was asked before kid. Yeah. Well, here's the turbo from factory. So like the wide thing like really works. Yeah. Yeah. I got actually say like, my car was kinda sketchy before it was wide, less sketchy. Now, I it's kind of hard to get the the rear to like really come around. But it used to it was a non deal car. Like a built was one of those. Vijay rover. Turbo that had hot rod parts that they didn't know where they were from. It's like foreign horsepower. Arts and crazy. So the backstory that I know of my car, and again, this is something that's been told me why other people, and I know the guys have seen my car at BB. I and like, yeah, we're like, oh, yeah. That's when we know the parts on that. So this is the story I was told. So if anyone wants to fact, check me, I'm just telling stories there is no documentation. I'm just telling someone on the story. So apparently when the nine six five, which also people hate that. I call it a nine six five, but it is actually my nine six nine mice part numbers say nine six five. All right. So nine six five was the is basically nine thirty in a nine six four bodies. So it's still with like a little bit updated management and because the real nine six four turbo is a three six, right? So mine's a three three so real quickly. When that car came out bunch people bought it and apparently a year or two later, they announced the three six and there's a ton of really angry Porsche owners because they got a car that is now. Now feels like outdated, and they weren't told that this was coming out. So apparently a bunch of dealers in the US kind of put together a turbo package upgrade kit that Andy L built from for all of them. So that's what it is. So it's like inter cooler. Turbo. Some piping slight management change. The only thing that still exists from that those resent or cooler because Tim and PB is kind of given a bit more of a boost now. So it's like mid four hundred probably at this point, which is goes which fuck Lenny quick for that car and not knocking anyone who builds thousand horsepower nine eleven's. But if you can have fun in a four hundred horsepower nine eleven drive, especially air four part of air, quite as a shitload is yours laggy. So it used to be really laggy. It was like super sketch. Like, maybe like were you? And now it's actually comes in pretty progressive change, we waste gate and a bunch of other stuff, and it's definitely been like, and that they retuned everything has definitely changed. A lot magical is amazing what modern technology can do car driven. Like a like a eighty three you know, four spe- ACP's got four speed. That's funny. My the first time I drove was. That's money. And that cars like wait for it. Oy for it. And you get boosted the very top with the four speed it takes fucking forever. So funny story on buying my car ACP's car. I've found my car on EBay. I really wanted to white car with the red interior. I found it in Colorado. It was actually a Ferrari collector who had it and just didn't want it because it was a Porsche and Porsche value at the. It's funny. I bought it for thirty five thousand with James James schenn's, one of those. So I saw black right red. Right with gold collar fucking awesome. You'll put that with like a blonde with high waisted pants down next to it. And that's the poster, but my bed is child. So. Yeah, yours looks good next to that though that works, you know, school, and that's one of my dream cars. So it was like when he came by with it. I mean, it's funny because it's a dream car. I could never fit in. Yeah. It's tough for the right right at the limit have to take my shoes off to drive it. So so wait ACP scar. Yeah. So I buy my car was had forty thousand miles on original. I bought it for thirty five grand, which time was a lot, my friend. Tony Tony harm. Tony said to me. You should have bought an ego. Because no one cared about air cooled Volkswagen air, cooled Porsches. Same thing. Volkswagens? It was a superbeet. I'll tell my friends so funny, and he was like should about an IBO faster. Millions now. But. That's great. Yeah. No like nobody cared. It was like I was like I just wanna push. I've always wanted one. I bought the car I wanted. So I bought it in Colorado and took about a month for the show up. And I had to go to a rally. I forget which one I was maybe doing farce rally and ACP shows up for the rally, and he drove his nine eleven then. So I'm like, oh, I just bought one. He's like a red. You wanna take mine for a spin? I'm like, yeah. Sure. I get in. I don't fit you're like. Oh, no. I'm like, oh, man. I just bought a car. I don't fit in. Because the only cars I driven before we're actually like fully prep race cars with racy real low and did a lot better. Better. And I was like, wow. I just bought a car. I don't fit in. So sure enough the car shows up my house, and I don't fit in it. But the Germans is smart, and there's actually a separate set of holes. So you can unbolt the seat and move at Atkins. There you go. You can move the whole thing back, and then I kind of it. But then b b b I ended up building. These crazy setbacks, I'm now, setback six and a half. My seat touches the bet the shack seed. Yeah, don't you rock a tiny steering wheel to for used to for my knees? But now I've gone back to a full-size he'll because the tiny wheel actually made the car feel super twig changes the steering wheel. It's like three. Oh, that's great thirty. Okay. Cool. Yeah, that's six and a half inches back. It's awesome. It's like a random event thing or maybe whatever years ago, and it was just just been done with reading -tarian, the white body just said, this is a that's a really really good that Carl. That's exactly how the car looked that. When from the day it rolled off from from the building and the car was already a white car. All ready had red interior the red wheels. Like I wanted because at the time if you think about it most of the raw well 'cause there were no cars in the US. So people weren't doing the carshow look. Yeah. All of the cars in Japan where like flat black with meisters. They all they all looked exactly like. And then there was like the one like signal green one right before those cars ever came to America where they building them as race cars over the stream they were more racecars or like streetcar race cars for the street and thing so they were most still racing over there. Yeah. They do. They have the race. And which they've invited me to. But I'm like, I don't fit in normal nine eleven. So we've got to figure that out and I'd love to go race there. But I wanted to build something I wanted to build a streetcar, but I wanted to build something that was like kind of like simple. And like it's like one of my cars, the first card ever have the bottom part painted black, oh, skirt which is a Volkswagen thing like the bottom of like Volkswagen's have like the black. I like the kind of look to it, you know. And then also if you notice this crosshairs in the headlights, so we added cross airs another like weird like Volkswagen. Oh much. Yeah. Just kid who eventually. You got a little bit of money. You're gonna go back thirty five grand. That was a brand new maxima. It. We get a license plate frame made. That says you should have bought it before Tony harbor. Not not a Yvo. Yeah. Yeah. You'll you're going to be laughing now, but to sell that thing you got to buy a house. I don't know, man. It's a it's a hard sell. Yeah. We we put it off Ron house, and they got except that the regulations that actually comes together, but exciting I'm a year from forty and I have thirteen cars and this'll be my first time. Biology's flat Bill if right? All right. Thirteen holy shit. What else is there Porsche fucking old three fifty two days in a CPS ACP's? Yeah. The. So this is always a tough one. So I've got I've got the nine eleven well, I include my wife's car. Okay. Right. So it's a group packet Ashley's got she's got a few. She's got to we've got to. We've got the nine eleven we've got the she has a nine forty four. I have the work. It will. Like a whole joke about how like as Brian's. Does it run when you were running late? I was like, oh, we'll Brian's got. He's got one car running. That's pushing the car in front that Steve. That's amazing. So yeah. So we we've got I've got an Audi four thousand Quattro than I traded for scooter. So which is for sale anybody wants it out here the scooter Audi. Okay. Yeah. I just I want to really focus on the coupe. And I don't need another four thousand. And then I've got a I've got the Nova we've asked that the the even shittier truck that F one hundred the most reliable thing, we all is it yo-. So last year that's an tangent all over it's awesomely, ugly, ugly, an awesomely ugly truck. So last year, we we we were going to. And that's actually that's before. He put the wheels on it. That's not the best photo. There's better for this where it's less ugly last year. We we planned a trip to go on a Baja with all of our friends to go camping. And we have that Land Rover discovery and other vehicle we have them come in right now. And that's good. Are two eight so I'll really really nice kit. But so we were going to go down. And we were the motor in the Rover and all of our friends like, oh, you still gonna come. 'cause we plan the the trend, right? And I was like, well, we don't really have a vehicle to get down there with and like last minute. I was like fuck it. We'll just drive the F one hundred and we drove it to to our south of San Felipe pay from LA, no problems. Everybody else on the trip had a problem with the Rover. Just ran. I mean, the F one hundred just ran great. It has the worst tick and knock it doesn't matter. You'll run. Ronnie runs. Great. It has no choke. So you have to like sit in warm it up for five minutes getting going sitting on the throttle. And it's like an old three hundred sixty you can't kill those. That's awesome. All right. So, but that's actually struck it's ugly, but it works, but it's good because I have a beautiful wife who drives a really tough ugly truck. So was like it's a good combo. It's very California. Very california. She pulled it into offroad expo, and like, you know, there's million dollars trucks and every guys like nice drought. Yeah. And I was in the passenger seat. And I was like, yeah. I'll just be open. My wife works on cars and stuff. So dish read them in the fact that it's like a little bit rough to you don't have to worry about we crash. So that's something. Like when I the thing. I hate about the nine eleven is a hatred parking. Yeah. Like, I just worry about it. And that's why I built the Nova because I'm going back like when I come back, right? Okay. German cars, so and so on, but when I moved here, I just wanted like a car that was cool, but like you could street park and not worry that much about. And so when I built the Nova was like, I it was intentionally like I just wanna keep it rough like everything needs to be rough about it. She just park it wherever and but at the same time get too nice state route is still street park. So like, I mean, I've had friends like semi photo. And be like, you know, the motor in. This thing is like forty grand street, whatever like most people don't know that in the end of this. Find out so, but yeah, it's like that thing is just super bad. I mean, we've done there's the Motors the old motor coming out. So I do like the look of that. Did you ever have any carpeting in it? It was dynamite. Dynamite? Awesome. I kind of just like it being being that. It's a I I wanna go through it and fix it. I built the car and sixty five days, and it was myself, my friend, Colin Wolfe, Tony Angelo, helped me a little bit, and my wife and who's still my girlfriend at the time. And it was like a super thrash to build and we built it for power tour and like just we back half the car. It has a kind of a disaster power tour a yeah. It broke every day. But but it was it's like an art Morrison frame. Like, there's a lot of stuff in it. And that was the whole thing is I want the car like when you look you're like, oh, yeah. Cool. Like kids are always asking like all like how do I get my stance? Like that. Or like that? I'm like you put you back half the car and you put in our Morrison frame, and you do a shit on a work this out fifty shit. But the whole idea was it wasn't supposed to wasn't supposed to look that way. And it's supposed to just look like simple car, which I think it's still does like, yeah. The real the grills Kirk it, the all my gaps on all my body panels miserable. And I'm okay with that. Well, yeah. I mean, that's that's good. But it from this distance here pulled up fifty. It's fifty right there. It looks really really fucking get. But if you actually look in and you look at the reflection of the quarter will realize that the reflection is really off because that's how wavy the body. Yeah. But who cares? Here's a fucking not when it's meant to be staying about the nine eleven that's a tough one too. Because it's got a really be. And it's Matt white to got to admit when the when the nine eleven's boomed, it kind of bone me out because I went from owning a thirty thousand or thirty five thousand dollar car with a cool body Ken on to owning something that was really really expensive that like I never like I could never I could never replace that. Yeah. So I now own something that I could actually afford. Yeah. And it makes you kind of change the way you drive things, and that sucks a little annoying where like the Nova it's like, I just beat the living shit out of it. And I love that car for that. But like with the nine eleven like, you break simple things, and they cost a lot of money now where it used to be like not that bad to replace them. Yeah. I could play stand bought a I'm worried that my safari car might be too nice to like beat on off road. Mike car had a sunroof a cut a sunroof off of a parts car for seven hundred bucks. Can you imagine cutting a rou? Roof off nine alike. It was a perfectly good car could have been made into a car. But whatever someone's that you can cut the revolver that thing now. Now, you find like too slick topic there's one that's been on Craigslist. I keep seeing because I have a really bad problem with Craigslist. But like I just constantly search like if I need if I like I used to like if it's like the cigarette habit. And like you have nothing to do smoke a cigarette. And I have nothing to do. I look on Craigslist. And that's how I also have an OPEL. They haven't told anyone about. About two OPEL Manta total. I saw it on Craigslist. I saw it on Craigslist. I was driving down south. It was like in oceanside. I was like, well, I'm already here. Oh my God. How bad is it? I have posted it. But it looks a lot like the one the it's an orange once it looks like that one over in the bottom corner there. Yeah. It looks like that. There's a guy's got a pretty rat run ever rate shape. It has it has really good bones. It's not bad. It's sort of fraiche cheap version. What was the orange car? You got that Maserati from remember you had it for like three days alpha. Sorry, what you picked it up up north to two hours north what the fuck are. We talking. Knows a much alpha. Montreal. Oh, yeah. Fucking drive on them. Now, two point six liter v eight and it sounds like a red ball walk lips. All god. It's incredible. Absolutely incredible weird looking car there. That's the one that's the one. I drove that's a bit sexier than my OPEL. And I dig the Opal. Little I in Camaro in the front. I it's like first gen Camaro had sex with a like early BMW. Yeah. I see I see a little bit early skyline in there. Yeah. We'll so the reason I got this car. It's weird. I've been wanting to buy a Japanese car forever. So I don't have one of my collection. I had an STI for short period of time. But it was like a commuter. You love it though. It was a two thousand four and it's like a lowered it for one day. And then I raised it back up realized that it's more fun to just hit because we were those on our office was still in downtown. Uh-huh. And lower. Bash through stuff, and that's made it cool. But great vehicle, but I've always just like I'd like to buy Japanese car just because I feel like around the collection because I'm weird with OCD is like that. But I really like old Japanese muscle. And you know, like seventies kind of like that kind of early skylines are mazing. And and I was looking for a long time at Mitsubishi Lancers. So which was sold. Here's the dodge Colt. And I wanted to do that with like four g sixty three in it and everything and I was looking for for a long time, and then the OPEL popped up. And I was like it's still had like the similar look to it kind of does. So in the end, I ended up buying another German car. So which is weird because I what I to do is I want to put a rotary in the OPEL. And here's why by the way, I'll let you know, you're getting exclusive on this. I haven't told anyone about the show because I get headlines much. I get so much of dick. You're by the way, I still love you met. I get so much crap on the fact that I don't finish projects. And I buy new projects, and I don't know why. Just enjoyed the new car like, and then I like this'll sit for a year before I probably even start on it. But I like thinking about it. But you have a big fucking shop where you can do that. Yes. Okay. That Audi sat for ten years. It wasn't really anything's way. No. It's in a garage in queens for like. Smelt so bad when I went to go pick it up. But it looks good from the back. I it's funny how from the trunk backwards. It's identical to an OPEL GT, basically. Yeah. Same use the same old narrow shirt they've they did. So the thought is is it's a German car built by Americans with a Japanese motor. That was global product is Japanese if I put the put the, you know, if I put the the rotary in it, it would be a Japanese motor designed by Germans the Winkler. It's a circle full full circle. I like it. Yes. That's fucking tight. Now with a sound incredible. Let fine line between incredible. And awful. I think they just they make a sound they make a sound unique. But man is rough on the ears as I it's not at all. I feel like I wish I had hurt here to argue. I know what it is. It's like her should I have a lot of different guards a lot. I've got the eight I got four five dollars. I like things that shoot fire. Reuters a really good at shooting. Fires. What you want to build an NA rotary because I just liked like ten thousand like RPM that's super high RAB lightweight car. Like, a really good cost to have a good rotary built these days, you, it's really know the more. I haven't I haven't gotten that far down, which is part of the reason why projects that get done because I'm like, oh that cost that much. We'll wait a few. That's sitting so but now the guys angel motorsports through the same guys that build hurt stuff. We've been talking about doing the renaissance motor which is crappy Rx eighty one. Yeah, they are save -able. Then like that's because they're kind of crap get them real cheap. And then like go from that bridge. Apex seals does that what you do? I don't I don't know how why I love because like I've a few years ago. I had really no idea about about live like next to hurt for the past. Now, I know a little bit more. But I'm like, oh, that's really incredible that someone decided to reinvent the wheel with the rotary is in his whole thing that hurts thing has never worked though, his car. Right now. But he's always p bravery said real quickly. Yeah. I don't finish projects. He just brakes them. Immediately breaks the same project over and over. I do love how his car he had adages to look like it hasn't been broken nearly as many times as it has. He has zero mechanical sympathy. So and you would think it's because he doesn't actually understand how cars work like you like the things he does. He does. He like, you know, that's going to explode doesn't care. So I respect the hell out of that though. He's one of the first people like I grew up skateboarding and like riding BMX, and like he treats his car like I used to treat my skateboard on my BMX bike like I didn't. I didn't care by BMX bike looked good. Like, I was meant to be beat on like when you finish beating on it. You replace the parts, and you put something else on like, I mean, even like a new skateboard like the first thing you wanna do scratch it up because you look like three they show up and it's like showers. Yeah. Yeah. So for like hurt I lap out. He's probably going to lose a bumper skirt potentially a hood, which is what? He got his nickname pins from. So I think that was amazing videos is so what have you learned about rotaries then for how to make them work? You know, what's do you? Are you going to do that for plan? You just doing turbo. No. I I for Reuters just like way too much I would love to and they sound phenomenal. But no, you work with someone who knows rotaries. And then you listen to that and you run really good management. So that like you're aware of what your engines doing and like hurt can't even start his without laptop. So I've just realized that like that that's the level at which you need to operate a rotary. Yeah. Okay. So I kinda level. Yeah. Like if you're on that level, and there's just like things that you always the warming up people run. This is like so crazy, but like people run like premix, really. Yeah. To stroke. Yeah. You're premix. That's like that's part of it, which is hilarious to me that that's like acceptable. Like, it's not even just the tune market. Like, there's guys who just own old rotaries, and they just have to run premix that is. I don't even like e eighty five cars, I just I don't wanna fuck and deal with that bullshit. The fact imagine mixing your own fucking field. What a painting. Yeah. So so we talk about your job for a little bit. Sure. How long do we go for shows usually ninety minutes? More like the last thirty. We got we have a bunch of questions. Exactly. I bet we do. Yeah. We get questions from the audience. So we usually do the last twenty or thirty minutes on those. I will admit I forgot to say I was here today. But who Negi told people, it's okay, which is probably told a bunch of people you hear who think until Bill which is a little bit bigger following them. I have personally. So I think it'll work out fine. Which means it's probably more hateful comments. Because like the people who like me follow me who don't like me fall again. That works. I'll share it afterwards. That's fine. It's, you know, something I I feel like I should have started the show at this. But like we all like the whole Gymkhana ten th incoming we probably. Yeah. Totally having talked about watching the Gymkhana files trailer on your website before you got here that looks cool to talk about to lead into that gulford. How did you get started with an and again actually get created? Sure, I'm gonna tell the short version accent. Okay. Sixty minutes left or something. So when I was working at rides we wanted to cover the Gumbo rally. Remember that thing? Yeah. Unfortunately, ever do. No. I did bull-run a bunch. I think I did bull run the I think you eight nine on. Well, yeah. Did the year before I did six with a with a zero six time? Yeah. Anyway, that was in that car. I came out to GM cars rally. It was super it was fun beating up on Ferrari's. Really? Really? Yeah. Yeah. You stay price on this thing. So anyway, we did we wanted to do gum. All and I'd heard that rob deer. Dick was going to go do Gumbo, and you know, working at rides. It was like celebrity mind kind of thing. And I was like, oh, let me reach out to DC a new some people over there. And we didn't even want to go along with them. It was just like, hey, rob. If you could just do a quick interview, and you could share some photos when you guys get back. We can we can make something out of it. And. So I sent over a little note and the about four hours later and come ball, by the way is starting like within thirty six hours because I know. With enough. I had never plan ahead. There's no planning. I just do it. So I was like so I get a phone call from from Pam Zam. Who is the who is the marketing person over there who we still work with which is why named her out, but she calls. She says, hey, Ken block, who's the, you know, like, I forget what his title was it then, but like the ones owner of DC, and you know, I think he's president or cheap rent officer. Whatever at the time said that if you can get to Trafalgar Square by tomorrow, he's got room in his car, and you could ride along with them for all. I was like, oh, it's in London, right? Yeah. It's in London. I was related. I'm six foot seven involved in. I didn't bother to mention that. Yeah. So what was this I run, and I talked about they were running three S T is here. And I thought that was super cool because they had like they had a c- is that were built by Crawford Crawford. Yeah. Thank you. And you know, they had like four hundred. And fifty horse. So they like we're pretty fun because they were faster than a lot of the like, you know, or sports cars, and they could keep up with some of the supercars and so on so. We went out there with the fuck. That'd be fun. Yeah. So so I was like all right. Yeah. I'll I'll definitely come along. And I convinced my publisher to buy me a ticket to England. And I was like figure out the rest when I got there. I went with a backpack. Like, I did just like, wow, the backpack like to shirts, and like a pair of pants, and and this was the mid two thousand so they were baggy pants. And so like went out there, and like showed up meet them like never like, I didn't know any of them. And you know, and can was like all right cool. He's like, I don't know if you're gonna fit in the car and like share enough like I remember writing in the article something about like sitting next to expensive luggage like frantic. Because it was all like Louis Vuitton luggage, and it was like three inches of space for me in the back seat. But long story short we had a ton of fun on Gumbel. And you know, I didn't really know much about Canada point. He was like getting into rally racing. So he was Chugai. It's at point real quickly. I mean, he sold his company to quicksilver and decided like he'd worked really really hard. And was like I want to go race cars like that looks really cool to me and went and took some rally school things at Tim O'Neill's up in New Hampshire, and they were actually I think they're the reason that he went further with it. Because like Tim was like, you're actually really talented at this. And you have Ken doesn't have the. Gene. Like, I've met so many people in my life and like him Travis Pastrana. Mike Ryan on if you Mike stop. The semi truck guy. Right. Yeah. Yeah. Like, those are the few people I've met my life that like they're just lacking the fear. Gene, Travis is on another level of lacking the fear, gene. It's almost like a whole other like he enjoys fear. I think it gets them here today. He's got like a new show on YouTube in heroes. And it's he's trying to coach one of his friends like to throw this front flip on a dirt bike trying to try and Chavis. Guzman just does it like second try, and when he crashes the first one he just gets up, and he's just gonna Huckle. Hurry, just smile. He acts like a six year old, and he's like forty I I will tell you that he's he's one of the greatest people. I've ever absolutely seen. He's really such a good guy. Like, I've never seen him on a bad day. And I've seen him having a bad day. But he's not having. No, he's always. But yeah, anyway, and just just tell that story a lot shorter while we were on Gumbo. I was like, you know, can we really should go do is like you should go do one lap of America. Because like this is like a bunch of rich guys with their supercars like being dangerous on the street. And it'd be cool to go. Do one lap where we can actually go drive racetracks. You know, and he's a cool. I've never heard of that. As like, I think it'd be really cool. So me and him ended up putting a one lap program together. And we rent and ran one lap the following year SEI in the same STI we we just relive it. So. Heartland? Ken block STI I think you'll find the photo of it. And yeah, it was rough. We blew the motor on the first day. Oh, we we like we had a motor come out from Vermont change the engine back on the road. They'll white one white one. So thank you open. That is as as far as amateur racing events. My name's on the window. That was back when I still was allowed to drive cars now, and again, I just sit behind the camera photo by but one lap is very gnarly. I recommend anyone who is interested in doing amateur motorsports to go to one hard. So here's the thing you up and we're going to keep changing so apologetic on that. It's hard to follow. But so here's I want to do on your one year. I want to get everyone together to go do one. Because I the get over the thing. I didn't like about one lap was that we felt like outsiders like nobody wanted us there because we weren't like that like road race crew. That'd be cool. If like, you Cain come in. Me, and we just reach out to guys like, and we get everybody to go. Just go do just press card with power to we went to power tour. And we brought you know, we ended up bringing fifteen like different of our younger friends with us. And it was like just a coup, and we didn't hang out with anyone else from Howard. What we just did our own thing, you know. And I think doing that for one lap would be a lot of fun about me. And if you do that, we should totally fun. And like it. I like the press card thing, I did it in a press card thirteen I did an x five m in SEM class off the press car like spec challenge would be kinda same press. How will this no performance variants? So we're just out there in like the Corolla stuff like that. Yeah. The cross tech. They something like whatever that car super cross trays the worse car across tracker. Sorry. Sorry, Subaru the sound of a dozen cvt. And it's like a UTV race. So yeah. So he did one lap blue did one lap and like during that process like I just started working more and more with him. And we you know, I had a need and he had a need. My need was was I was launching zero to sixty magazine. And I needed a race car driver who wanted to do fun things because it's actually really rare. Yeah. And like as much shit as people give Ken like, you know, I had this conversation the other day with someone which is like the number one comment like you. You look at go through Gymkhana. Right. You read the comments on one of my favorite comments is he's not a WRC champion we have. But you know with name and WC champion who makes him kinda videos for you for free wash. Like because lobes not doing it. Like, yeah, he's not he knows. He's not like he was never going to be because he didn't start racing to lose thirty seven. He lost that opportunity other WRC jar. That's even kind of fun is Pedder, Saul Petters read. Yeah. Petters rapid still like, but he's not doing that shit is not doing that. And it's like, sure. Could they do it? I'm sure they could. But they're not they're not making them for you every year and putting a ton of work into making these films and doing that and can had that thing where he wanted to go do really really cool stuff. So Gymkhana was actually a magazine story in zero to sixty the head of video component to it. And that was the original video. Yeah. Isn't that? Crazy. It's weird. The world is at that was a it was the initial thing was like, let's do a magazine thing. And then can like film some parts, and what ended up happening was he filmed more more parts, and that started we start to realize that it was something cool. Yeah. And now, it's the thing. Yeah. And I remember the first video I remember saying to him like to this thing's going to do like five hundred thousand views, it's gonna crack because no one knew what big views were. Yeah. Point. It just wasn't New Year's at nine two thousand two thousand eight Jim Khana one which was called which by the way, it was only culture kind of practice because we didn't want because we weren't so pretentious to think. There was going be. All right. The first. Annual. Yeah, exactly, exactly. You just coming out strong. So yeah. And I mean, it's been it's been RAD in so out now. I was using him to help me lodge sixty. He was using me. Because in the reality was he didn't really have that many people in the motives worth world who knew it. And like it was he invited me to his house for thanksgiving. Right. This is a funny story only get membership at this. But he vitamin his house thanksgiving, and we'd get there, and it was like really weird to begin with because we weren't that close yet. Like, we weren't really that friendly invited me and my girlfriend timeout, and we're there and all of a sudden like he he like walks me into the dining room. And there's this like whole like they were like working on a new video for DC skateboarding called the DC video and the whole like thing was laid out on the table. And I walked in. He was like, what do you think about this whole? And I realized that was my job interview. Like there it is like thanksgiving weekend. We're out Utah to go snowboarding, and he was just like watching me work through everything. And that was sort of where we started it all started. And so he started burying me out for different projects. And you know, before you know, it's the old joke of like usually every overnight success start at seven years. Before kind of thing. And it's like we had done like stunt junkies. Which was like him doing one hundred and seventy one foot record jump in the rally car, we'd done like a bunch of other little things he did this thing down in New Zealand snow park, and like all these things have come together, and they all hit, but they didn't crack like Gymkhana, Dan. And so he did Jim Connor and I have to say like the first two years of that. Like, I was I was involved. But I wasn't there fulltime I was still running zero to sixty magazine. And it was I'd like a column in the magazine. It was really just like leveraging like, hey, you wanted to cool things you've got some budget to go do cool things. Yes. Sponsors, you're willing to do cool things. And at that time like like all wheel drive Subaru's. We're like peak like. That was like the market for performance. So with all the right space thousand like you couldn't even get a Hawkeye. Yeah. I wanted to get a Hawkeye in like oh, seven oh eight and like they wanted like over Shakur for this one thing. So the Hawkeye that's actually in. Gymkhana one was actually a conversion because it was actually an older car the same car. We did when Levin so anyway, and that was like that was sort of it. We started working together and two thousand eight comes in the crash comes and the print industry just like takes a huge nosedive in seeing the writing on the wall of like how's this going to pan out for us? And I started kind of like hinting to Ken like, hey, if you want me to come to DC to help you run on the automotive side of things, you know, what do you think? And he was like, yeah. I don't know. Maybe one day. I was like all right hinting enough. Like waco. Yeah. I need a job to what my dick where we go at this. So we got to the point where he where he decided he was going to launch his own team with Ford any he approached me, and that was actually weird point because zero to sixty was like full tail and things were doing really, well, I actually didn't really want to leave anymore, but I kind of took that step back and said like, you know, I launched the sixty I love doing it. But it wasn't my magazine. It wasn't mine publishing companies and they had to control over it. And like a lot of bad things happen while I was making that magazine because I like I gave up everything to try to keep what it was like I at some point I gave up part of my salary, so they wouldn't reduce the paper quality and like I look back at it now. And I'm like, oh my God. What bloody martyr? Mattered so much time. You know, you started it. So at the same time, it was never mind and Ken came to me and said, look, I want you to come be my marketing director, but I also want to start a brand with you that like I'll give you an ownership. And there was a I was obviously like very intrigued by having something that could be like really be mine, and you know, in the idea was Hyun again, and the whole concept around it was there's no motor sport brand that like is like with DC was for skateboarders snowboarders, like the brand like that just did it really exists where like if you go and the way I always like to shake because like you walk into your let's say your freshman year of college like you might not want to admit it. But everyone thought about what t-shirt they were going to wear them because you want to connect. So like I remember wearing like punk rock teas. So then like other kids you'd be like, oh, you like you like the business? So you like you got to. I had my my Knin exactly downright spiral t tour and you wanted to like connected people. And like the same thing was for me with skateboarding and riding BMX in automotive like that was sort of weird. Like, are you gonna wear for our ET shirt or a Porsche shirt like his it didn't really narrow it down. Like like that did. So we were like we want to build a brand that has an attitude to it. So like if you see who again, you're like, I know exactly who you are sort of the original concept, and it worked I I went to go teach a career day at a fuck in east LA school about three weeks ago sick where and he's still nor. Oh, okay. And Mads it was a huge school. I mean, it's a big fucking school on there. And it was the northernmost be in Boyle heights. So like who has roots out and dude, and and it was like five or six waves of like thirty forty kids came through this this thing I did repeatedly over and over and every single one of those groups had. I four five. That's right. I wouldn't again branded items. I mean, seriously every single fucking one. It was like like the polo pony of fuck high school kids. It was amazing. I was like oh my God. Fucking Scotto selling. All these kids. Crazy. I mean, they probably bootleg stuff of Amazon's probably fake. Actually once you start getting bootlegged, do you know, you've succeeded? Oh, yeah. Like once he gets to that point. Where like you see your stuffing? We didn't make that. Oh, did what my dad ran. Ralph Lauren for twenty years. So mad magin the fakery, by the way, I met. I ran into Steve Catalano. Do you remember Steve the painter at design? Yeah. He built the car that was at the Magna flow booth. Oh, really cool. Because like, I I loved all those guys and still Ken Ken had from AI design CLA fifty-five. Right. That was one of the things I did early on when I was zero six hours the first Matt black car. Thank you. It was you. Thank you for for members thousand five Ken block effort AI design and taco New York did the first modern Matt black car ever that wasn't like a hot rod approx. Yeah. No, no. And I remember 'cause mad filial. If may I designed was like look at this and that guy and that guy Steve's the one who painted huge there. It is the second picture in on the left. That's the that's the original promo shot for another. Oni armor photo that is I j- full credits can block and today I designed because that was the first modern Matt black car before I was ever a fun. You can see how old it is. Because it only is two hundred. Yes. I still love the shape of that car that was one of the best sedans ever made. And that was a that was the brab K eight kid I got to so we we debuted that at Sima in the zero to sixty booth and then I got the drive. It from Ken was like, hey, I gotta go home you mind, bringing it to my house Utah. You know, he was living in Rancho Santa Fe. So he's down in like, San Diego area. And he's a you mind driving from Vegas, and we brought it through L Mirage and like. On the like on the flat dust in the tail last night, we showed up at his house. And I was like oh my God. I just trashed his car like. How this goes over the car? We I it's one of those like instant burnt out cars, that's like the Mercedes muscle cars like that. Like, yes, you can get a fucking seal us fifty five. It's a eleven thousand dollar car right now shit. Fucking bitch. Can you get sixty three's for like the first I gen two thousand five maybe maybe like in the high thirties. I don't know if you can get a I don't know if you can get them under thirty I think in in the thirties probably sacrifice. I I loved that car. I remember writing a review on that zero to sixty and I was comparing it to the m three such comparison the RS four and the like the four sedans at the time. And I remember I I only remember this quote because Ryan Dunn actually he texted me, it was like disagrees thing I've ever read in like, I thought Ryan was really cool really stoked that he hit me up on it. But he was a sweet I I know it's so sad. Ryan was and he was a real car guy. Like, I spent a the way I met him was at at Barrett Jackson with charity Enda, and I spent the whole day with him on the auction block. And we would. Talking about all the cars. Yeah. And we saw Kun Tosh go off the auction at twenty nine thousand dollars come on. Now, how fun and he, and I don't know the full detail of it. But it was fun. It was like two thousand eight it was like people didn't really care about that car. And he got so boned because we didn't see it over the block. We just saw it afterwards. Like, I would have bought that. Yeah. But he was superior guy. But well shit there you go two thousand nine C sixty three twenty three grand. That's a great heart, really cheap. But I said I was like I was comparing it, and I was like if the m three is like a more like kickboxer, like, the the, you know, the c sixty three she's fucking drunken barroom brawl, and because of that it's a better car. It's just like you you have to be on track to enjoy the three you can enjoy a C sixty three and traffic in New York City. Yeah. Such a fun car Berger took one on bull-run. And remember he installed a smokescreen in. It is the most dangerous thing of ever seen. It wasn't that. It was in. Called it was that he used it on the highway. I most dangerous thing I've ever seen someone do. I feel like that era. Like automotive is gone. Oh, yeah. Like the gum ball bull-run like that whole celebrated. Yeah. And Robby Gordon with his fucking Jeep. Oh, yeah. The that video of Robby Robby don't Robbie don't. I mean, it's a crazy video it's bad. When you put a bunch of car guys like altogether is everyone's just trying to totally outdo each mob mentality. And now that everyone has a cell phone with a camera. So there's it's crazy more likely to have accorded in UTSA. This gotten older like I drive so conservative me too. I'm like, you know, what I do. Now, take my bicycle out on the beat beach bike path. And I swerve in between. Taurus, and I get it out there. I ride like a dude. The bypass in Venice is sketchy is hell with the birds scrutiny. Do you know Alex Bruno Bernstein? Yeah, he'll we were writing and Alex hit a kid at like we were like full tilt peddling. And this was like, I, you know, like you watch children, and like they have no concept of direction. Right. So he's like just it's like he's playing football. He's like, boom, boom. Boom up. Right. Like, he's just like Juki and jiving and ends up. Just stepping in front of Alex, Alex is peddling it like twenty miles an hour and Rex's skit Wrexham takes them down. And he he I mean, he was with his mom, and he's like eight years old and he gets up. He was like a big kid. He was morally and he gets up, and we're like, oh, my are you like we thought we keep killing and he gets up, and it was me, Alex. And ashley. And the minute. He sees Ashley he like sucks. Tears back in. Okay. And I was like you're the coolest kid half. What you do? What you do right now that happened to me when I was a kid like I get that. I respect those tears in. That's cool. You cry later like the rest of the bike path is gnarly though, you can usually get hurt with the bird scooters. Did he Burt scooters I do too except when I'm seeing someone else eats shit on one. And then I love her you follow bird graveyard. Yes. It's just the greatest the Graham, but I live on the canal. So I find them in the canal time, I'll be back out. They'd like they're still blinking. It's pretty good their water pull I can see the bike path from my place. And I see there's a section of bike path where it bends in a little bit and sand gets co. That's nice. Oh, it's good people. Sale. I don't hate the bird scooters for people riding them. Although I will say like there's like some people like you can barely write a bicycle you shouldn't be allowed to electric scooter like balances the thing than likely not bad is like a highway in which no drivers have driven a car at all in the last ten years. I did this when I was a kid. What could possibly happen? But there's that. But the thing I hate is that there like litter. Yeah. Like, I walk out at my house, and they're like just like leaned up against my garage. And it's just like there's sort of what happens at ten M and the caravan of trucks that come collect all kind of kind of appreciate the cottage industry. Yeah. The hustle get paid for charge. Right. Yeah. People on this is talking about for its we'll keep moving. You ability, bro. There's a mobile is a mobile show. You have to invoke really every automaker will spend money with units is a is there a bird scooter Gymkhana, ten can segue. There's not, but there's a segue. Anyway, let's tradition at this point. Right. That is and we kind of retired it there hadn't been one since Gymkhana six the grill over it. Now. Jim six cops. So right. Yeah. Okay. I was kind of over it. And I just felt like we'd done too much. But with ten being I don't want to say the last Gymkhana, but like they'll never be Gymkhana eleven I don't know just going to go twelve bucks go past farewell tour. No, I just over it out of locations to push the limits of time that I think that like with anything you do you just want to do something different total end like we create a formula. And we stuck to that formula for ten years. And now you've got this pickup truck thing that looks pretty bad. And like, I'll be honest the same underneath as the Mustang. Basically the drive train is in terms of from transmission back. So that's crazy. Have like pneumatic control all wheel drive, which is like a center box that so it's it's sort of more similar to like a four by four setup than traditional like all drive set up because it's got like half shafts that run front back. So the I think that the I think that the big piece is that that cars, really, radd the engine. It's really sick. I don't know if you saw that. But it's actually the truck it's out the GT prototype car. So it was the engine that the Daytona. Prototypes. It's what they use to prototype for winning Lamont's. Oh, so it's just kind of cool Detroit speed built it. Oh, yeah. Detroit speed like, I know them talkers. Zeile curse over there. Everyone's great. Stacey. They've been ruled there. I drove all their cars. I went down until six cars. Every one of them was incredible. Like, I I love building my own cars, and I've been around a lot of really cool built cars. And then I saw there, and I just realized the quad even think you could put that much detail building a car. Yeah. I mean, they have like a million dollar plus genuine Kamara that they've been building for a customer ever. So most guy MO who spent like three million dollars with. It's just a it's just incredible. And then they brought their gen three. The IRA yet to the blue on. Yeah. They've brought it they brought it to Sima just to do burn outs in our booth. They say race it an Optima. So yeah. Then they raise up they were like we brought out early for that. And it was super cool to like see tiles through down so hard, and it's like cool to see like a own over company like that in a builder like still be able to like wheel a car the things fucking rule. They're they're they're awesome. And they so they built a new truck. So it does share some things. But yeah, you can look at like the rear frame set that they built and it's like modular. So like if we full size slot car. Yeah. If we crashed the car, we can actually repair sections of the chassis instead of having to re instead of the whole thing because that convenient for Gymkhana production. Yeah. You know, the thing is is that like a lot goes into those films, and if the cargoes down like, we're we're literally just like lighting money on fire. Yeah. I mean, it's just because you've got eight. Eighty to one hundred twenty people to standing there on their phones while waiting for the car location UCLA to shut down. And we explain that. And sometimes you move you lose your window. So it's like the cops are like you got you got an twenty minutes, if you can't make it work to open this backup, and you're done. Yeah. You know? So we have lost locations because of that in the past. But yeah, no. This is cool. It's. I think the unicorn is still my favorite car that we've ever built for the films. It's just it's just so incredible. Yeah. But from a build point of view, I think that this is the best car I've ever built like just build quality vehicles and not that the unicorn isn't quality too. But like there's just that extra level with this one. That's really really nuts. But the who corn just look so. Yeah. To me. That's a correct vehicle. It just looks right. The seating position all of that. Like Z trucks law awkward. Yes. A single cab. What are you gonna do? Here. I told me the super cab. But whatever so you know, what would have made that work center. See center driving position is how you would have made that Routier thing. Yeah. Busy motos doing the seat. He brought that by our shop. I drove it. He's apparently everything I've heard about it. It's a really good driver's car on track. It's yes, I drove it a button while I was really in school. So what my favorite thing about? You is your ambition in shutting down hard to get locations like the seven ten freeway, and she was seven times thing was shut down the one. Oh, five one ten inch. The largest inner change America. That's the one from the movie speed, by the way in case. And then he went out there's wondering where the jumped the bus. That's that's that. And yeah, I mean, that's you know, San Francisco's what open that all out for us. When we film Gymkhana five we had no idea we could do that kind of stuff because up until Jim five it was like, you know, it was like poor axe or towards or the tracking in that we shot in France. Like hadn't been used fifty year old the Bank fan. That was so that was a cool thing. The ramp was cool. Yeah. That was neat. And you know. Came more being the location, right? We'll five was like, I mean, five was incredible one of the reasons that that happened was we had hired a location scout who actually was working on the avengers film or iron man or one of those two, and he had already they were supposed to shoot it in San Francisco. So he knew a bunch of locations that were hermit would be shut down. So we were like hawking. He's like, well, what about the what about the bay bridge? I was like he's like if you want it, we could probably make it work. And like that was the beginning of like this like childhood dream like, you know, like you like look at things like, oh, how cool it'd be to do that do that there, you know? And like, then all of a sudden, it became real that we could drive around cities and be like who would have we did this? That's what I love that your brand in general is you guys just play like you just have fun like what if we built this cart? What if we set up a Donut booth that Seema what if we jump this or slid this or Bill to fuck in muscle car that has like all drive rally properties. Everything about it. He's just like what if you just do it, it's shit. And that's I mean, it's it came out of like this mentality that like motor sports and racing. Got we too stiff and getting because like I worked on WRC team racing in FIA like top level and everything matters. And like, it becomes really serious and people get really pissed and sponsors get really pissed and you get into this thing where like you go home at night. And you're you didn't have fun and. Like you. Then you start to think about it you I had the fun job. But it's not fun. Fuck happened here. Yeah. And I, and I think this will probably one thing that might resonate with like people were listening is like if you're working job, and you look at us, and you think to yourself like, I'm a I'm a plumber electrician, my job sucks. These guys jobs is great. It's not actually always true because it's still sometimes compete job. It's great when it's headed down at ten minutes a week. Yeah. And a lot of it's a lot of work and a lot a lot of it like they're still like clients who are like our sponsors who are expecting something screw up and you got to deal with that. And all of that. And I think that that's really really a, you know, you really see that in motorsports. You see drivers who forget why they got into this. And it all becomes about like the business of racing. And we wanted to get into the exact opposite of that. Yeah. We wanted to be a place where you could take your race car and come how fun, you know. And it's like you watch like what we've done in the yard on the YouTube show. And it's like you got trophy Chuck guys coming out and crash. Into container. Boys, and like, you know, and just crazy stuff and like getting the watch people use vehicles in different ways. Because I go back to like what would twelve year old? You do would twelve year old you like be worried about conserving tyres and doing all of this. And I love that part of motorsports. But there needs to be a fun side of it as well. You know, I wish I could have afforded to like do something real crazy in my car. I can afford to bucket and smashing here containers. Oh, yeah. But like that's what we built shit car. We a BMW that we've all like, I mean, it's made everyone in the building a better driver because you just learn to like crash it in the past it, and you lose some of that fear of driving. And and you know, I think that that's something that like the drift culture has brought to motorsports in a really cool way. Like, those kids cheat their cars like the disposable I really do. And that's something that even I have a hard struggle doing because I come from a different era where like I came out of like car shows and the way you build these nice things and he's kids. The the cars are disposable. And there's something really cool about that. Because of the cars. A tool instead of like being a precious item. Weds we see it in CNN cheap racing now to a lot of forcible, you know, racing where people don't really give a shit what the car looks like in bumping into each other. And he thirties and stuff like that. And simple things like lemons, and all that stuff is just opened up like a whole world. I mean, it's been happening in other areas like, you know, Scandinavia's been doing full cross and oh, yeah. Bulk racing forever that where you can buy anyone's car for one hundred bucks. Titian like five hundred dollars. Goodbye cars that way it prevents people from making team nights of a car. But right. That's the reason why the scandals are so good at rally. They've been doing it since they were like twelve. Yeah. So let's we got a lot of questions. We'll get through as many as we can. I don't want. I can't we can't fucking keep Brian all night, can you zoom in on those Zach I cannot see. We got a bunch what happened to future hurt? Man. This is going to be real inside baseball. Yeah. So this is the guy who used to work at our company was not he hurt who doesn't work anymore. And it's it's one of those things that like I'm not going to address that. But I'm going to address this is that it's it's a hard thing. I think for people on YouTube to understand that like we are business, right? And like people come and go. Yeah. And actually, we've had a we have an employee who's leaving shortly, and we're all really bummed that he's leaving. But you know, he just he wants to do something different with his life. And like that happens like, we all come and go from jobs, I've come and gone from jobs, and but people see you and Ken are permanent. Yeah. Probably hurt. But like there's just a there is a family atmosphere, and what happens on the show, but at the same time if you're leaving you go do something different. Like, you don't get to like leave your new job to come back hanging. So sometimes you do. But you know, but that's it. But yeah, I mean, you know, like, and honestly like we've never I think everyone wants drama, and like there hasn't been like the sometimes get a little bit friction when people leave well reality TV, but I love everyone who's worked for us in his left. It's all been whatever including Gary Scotto. How do you feel about potato chip seats like the buckets? No, it was it was a car that was at Sema that had a carbon fiber like like Kirke style seats, and in the end, like the owner was pretty bummed that we made fun of his seats. But but is actually kind of a real bummer because his car was really really sick this ST thousand with a to j or one j in it, and it was really really nice Bill, but it was sort of this ongoing theme of when we were walking around Sima like like a lot of cars had Kirke. A lot of cars had Kirke is in them. Yeah. And had like thin like drag race style seats, and like you've kind of become this like a. Hit become this like weird theme. It seemed like you always see like, we are translate. Why all of a sudden her people running Kirke, and like these these seats were may call ultra carbon or something, but and they were like a carbon carbon-fiber seat. And we were kind of just joking on like this trend that had come out, and we referred to him L potato chips within but ended up kind of like getting out of like bullying portion for the people who scar. It was and people who made the seats and way didn't really mean it that way. It's just kind of one of those things. Thanksgiving is going to be full of fucking memes. Joe so dominant says thanks for the recent card. Vice response, you're welcome. What have you? What do I like most about my safari nine eleven fucking everything. It's basically everything I like about raptors and everything I like about Porsches mashed into one car. Yeah. So I'm Super Bowl because we I was going to get to this. Which was when I bought my nine eleven they were super cheap. Yeah. And see fours were even cheap. You could buy see fours for sub ten grand less than one hundred thousand miles. I'm so I found a black one for eighty five hundred bucks. And I was like I'm going to buy and build it into a safari build. Yeah. And then I just didn't because like something came in the way. And I so regret that because I would love a safari nine eleven don't need the all wheel drive now. I know you don't. But I'm not saying I was going to get him because they would time and I was like, oh, it'd be a really cool rally project and now I couldn't afford one. It it's it's as great as you just because I've been just been having in the street. I haven't heard yet. It's as great as you can imagine is you should come down. And we got like a little dirt. Thing behind the shop. Really we're going to try to permit out to do some testing really bug because we built a baba. Oh, I would definitely definitely definitely. That's that's an easy one. Let's see a bunch of people have thoughts on. Oh, three or four star. Non turbo. No, just not a good car. A couple of people have said thank you for things. And I appreciate that. I'm not gonna be mall Scotto if you could pick off one car from Bill breakdown shredder on the yard. What would you pick? Probably that we had a stereo income in all all I know that one John J f from Optima challenge like that car is just amazing. I drove that car. He, and I don't even know if I want to just one of my favorite cars. It's that's coming. That guy. Worked a GM advanced composites. I wasn't even there that day and the starry owns one of my favorite cars. Like that is the best story. First car ever did a Donut in. So I it has a special place for me. Yeah. No. That cars the greatest I have a one take with that car in the canyons. It's incredible. Do you know Taveres, you know, Freddie, Freddie, Hernandez who has this question, by the way for Taveres who do you need to bribe to bring the Lamborghini by for build bio, like do, you know? Yeah. I I I don't know him personally. But I've watched some cars, I love that. So. Yeah. Do just just hit it hit us up and come by. Let's play for I told, Freddie when he fixes that car. I will drive it. So just fucking get that thing out here, and we'll do with Bill do thing. And I'll do a thing and come out here. Do a little a little LA tour. I love, Freddie. So and thank you for your donation as usual he fucking. He throws cash at us. Appreciate that. I know he he's he always does. He's a big supporter, dude. He's doing very well though. I appreciate that one thing. Someone Matangi from this right now like, I think one thing is all. All of us. It's it's weird is like YouTubers and really like that term. But in either because because we do a lot more than you when we have an Amazon show do stuff on Instagram, Twitter, whatever right, but we're content makers and some of it ends up on YouTube. But I do think that it's important that a lot of us work together in some ways because like we're not that we're actually a really small group on YouTube. Yes, the automotive were awful is really small the numbers that we actually reach in the cosmic scheme of things are like small compared to let's say cosmetics. Yeah. And it's like we can all be bigger if we work together all of that stuff. So it's like we we've always been wanting to work more with other people we work with like atom z like Cletus and guys like that. But like if you're a youtuber, and you're putting together stuff like hit us up. We always like working with other YouTubers, speaking of like Tyler Hoover guy who hooves garage, you know, him. He apparently just he did a thing where he buried a lebaron for a year. And then dug it out started like an eighties won. I think sick. He just buried himself inside of his ROY. Range Rover as a video look a goof. Well, look, by the way, read my Range Rover with me inside don't do that. That's that's a terrible idea. Don't do that at all. I've never I've never heard of that channel. That is a bad idea. Does he have like a bunch of heavy machinery, I guess so. So we use it to build jumps instead of burying shit. I'm just saying, yeah. I jumped my Range Rover off of that is better than my Stevens says will early WRX is ever be worth any money. I with la- miles. Well, the problem is right now is they definitely are hitting this like super-low spot. Yeah. You can get them really really cheap. But enough people crash them and enough people write them off. And then they become valuable again you need. I mean, you need to find that one old white guys car who's guess to have to be white. But the one old guys you'll last stock. You know, the other day hurt saw a like a like a seventy five year old lady driving a like a main Yvo nine hell yet. I was like, that's amazing. I tried to buy I saw an old lady driving a mint MR to turbo in Santa Barbara. And I tried to buy it off her right then and there she wouldn't sell. Get kind of a little bit. But but the that same car just sold on bring trailer that very car I tried to buy off that lady just sold on bring a trail. Rely like twelve grand or fourteen grams zoning is fresh is fresh. It was like I was like middle aged woman in Santa Barbara was like, Yep. By the way, I talking about bringing a trailer. I tried to sell my truck on bring a trailer. And they haven't even replied back to me, the one you drove here in after fifty because it's it's a like it's a really cleaned old diesel f three fifty which is actually those those things have gone through the roof on raffle it off. That's another idea. I had it on EBay and someone bid on it. And then they went completely like they won the bid. Yeah. And then they just went radio show. Oh and EBay is like, yeah. I guess you can relist it. We won't charge you the listing fees and like that's kind of annoying because there was like other things involvement. Fuck out of here. David says, do we think the front engine rear-drive platform is reached its peak in terms of acceleration? And track performance example, the seven hundred fifty horsepower, corvette and next-gen has mid engine. I mean kinda. Yeah. Kind of the I mean every every front engine Ferrari seems to be hairier and Harrier than the one before it have you driven a news ER one Scotto haven't this is me. I haven't driven a lot of press cars recently. The most recent press car that I drove. I'll say maybe like a hell cat or something. Like, I haven't. I haven't got a few problems with traction there. Fun. The next one is like all right. We can fuck and stop now. Yeah. He's seven fifty seven. I remember when I started getting into the six hundreds think, especially like six hundred Mercedes. I don't know if you need that. So no one wants to jump out of its own tires. It's really crazy the horsepower things wild. Because when I was a kid if you had four hundred horsepower, you're king. Now, if you don't have anything more than a thousand like the internet's really people who which is weird because like my Nova has probably just under seven hundred and it's on monster. Yeah. It is a monster. Yeah. Like the internet. It's all it's all the internet. We know we know people who've driven cars like that. We know that LS swaps are good. They're not boring. They're good. No L saucer. Great. Yeah. I don't have any they're great. Because if simple you can find parts of pep boys to fix your car, which is RAD. Yeah. They work properly. And we know that five hundred horsepower is a bunch. Yeah. I'm so sick of the the everyone hating LS lops thing. It's so annoying. Because you see him a lot on the internet. But in person, you don't see them and their hurston LS swap to forty go. All right. That's fucking. It's a weird. It's become this like instant response. And it's such a like lemmings thing. So if you're forums right now, and you're shitting on someone or your in comments or whatever about having an LSU just a lemming because like you just saying it because the other guy's saying, look, I do appreciate. Nate weird swaps weird swabs are hard to do. They are usually not that reliable. And it takes a lot more money to do it. Yeah. And if you just want to build a reliable three hundred and fifty four hundred horsepower car in LS is fits and everything. It's a tight package, which is what makes it so good. Well, the communists act like they're at a show with magician and he's doing the same trick. And like do a different trick. It's like knows wanted to build this car. You're not an audience to just a show. That's very simple like this is someone built this project, and it has to work and run race. And you burn out your drift, or whatever it's not they're just like bored of seeing it. But it's like that's not my problem. And I get it. I mean, I get people get bored of seeing the same thing over and over again like you said about our WBZ before. Yeah. Like are the WB market seems so overly saturated? Yeah. Probably forty and all of America. But but thirty of them learn Los Angeles every single one of them gets a lot of media coverage. Yeah. I man he's gonna fucking die soon. He is teased. I do too. But he does not take care of him. Quick Nikai story that the love because I I love for three days at the time carton of cigarettes while you're doing it doesn't seem how would I love what Nick is about. So when we were when they were building, my car was rent sport at Laguna. Right. And so we decided that we are going to go check out rent sport while we're there, so we're like, and I actually stayed in built my car with the guy because I had nothing else. I went up there. And I'm like, I'm not just gonna sit here and watch you. Yeah. So he was like cut my cuts on my own fenders off like help them line stuff up, but all that stuff together. And there was like a bunch of other stuff that had to do the car anyway. And we're like, okay, we're gonna go to rent sport today. And we were there for like an hour and a half. And this is a kid like, no English at this point. Yes, he just like Kayla three. He's like we go work car now. Right. He didn't even want to be there. We're like the greatest portion of the world, and he was like can we go back and work on your car now, and we left and went back to work on my car because he just didn't care about anything other than like that. He likes building cars. Singularly focused very singular folk. Yeah. Well, if you know, and they all if it's not him. It's the end of it. I mean, it's still crazy because it's like they never expanded to like nine nine six is like a few things like that Bill, which Tanner, I love you. But like, you know, they've done a lot of other things that they, you know, I think were they tried. But like they've really stayed true. It's yeah. It's like. Slurred? It looks great. And I'll admit there's a lot of the new ones have come out that I don't like the kind of became a car show car sound like the driver's car. You know, but Tim is doing that BB the RW there should be where he actually changes the suspension geometry's to make them like that started with my car because K W they rebuilt the structure my car that they were shorter body struts actually have a bit of travel because I was basically riding on bump stops for the first year. And if you're if you if you just run a standard suspension Jones, she was a crazy dish the geometry's are false organize. My car's turbo. So it already was what has it's it's not an, but these guys are building cars on non turbos and doing these crazy offsets probably drive and your wheel sitting so much farther out from your breaking and like just everything on it. Just gonna destroy your wheel hubs fucking disaster. Scotto any chance of throwback shirts to the original t shirt line. Yes, we're going to do. We do them every year for black Friday. Each one of us picks our favorite shirt, and we recreate it as for cease and desist shirt designs. I think we might be over three. Now, I think we might be in the four or five my my whole thing with as I kind of take it as a badge of honor. So Steve Rocco from world industries used to frame all his season. If you haven't watched that movie, it's the man who sold the world. Yeah. It's about Steve Rocco. World in shock. Skateboarding upside down, you can find it on YouTube. Okay. Cool. I'll check that out aerial says, I know the Ghibli stinks. But as a twenty fifteen CPO Ghibli with less than thirty thousand miles a by at twenty five thousand dollars. No, you couldn't get we won. You literally couldn't give me one to have heaven driven. They I like how they look though, they're awful. They're that bad off. That's awful the only car to breakdown Doering oppression. You couldn't get me one for free seriously. I mean, and certainly not one that's three years old. Nick says a replacement car for my da-, my fiance's five-speed Cy on TC manual only front or all wheel drive doesn't have to be fast fiesta St.. Yeah. Anyone else fiesta fiestas? He's pretty damn good. They're good. It's a pretty good car. And I have I'm a Volkswagen kid, but I actually think that Ford has passed VW on just a good driver's car, folks, soft. They are they'll controls are really light and really controls during the most important thing in a Ford satellites sharper steering right now, the focus and the fiesta both have shot really sharp steering. Peter says when will we see team Hoon again in a lemons race, and why are you choosing the roles as your car? I love I love files. Love that connection that they were like NY. Are you choosing the car? I appreciate that. You have these are not the Georgia looking for the verbs there. So we are we actually did eleven's race with Jason Ellis. So we Zach Jason Allison KADO from our team. But it wasn't like an official who thing because we went and drove someone else's car. So there was a Yokohama had a like a convertible e thirty six that they had that no driving. And they were like, hey, come and drive it. So we want to build a lemon scar. We'll probably do it next year. But again, that's like a seat. If you need an extra drive instead of you should build a car because our. It's more fun. If we can go there and compete against like our own crew instead of like all the like lemons pros. Yeah. I I don't I don't have a shop. I don't have a car, but I'll go all right. Gets you see deejay says any plans to do one takes in the bay area knows Zach use. Yes. Holly. December Email the smoking tire at gmaiLcom exit. Sounds safe. I'm Doug visas. Aggressive. Sounds good. Spencer says I'm from Taiwan. Just just get a four AG blacktop ninety five. Oh, all right. He swapped a blacktop into a ninety five Corolla fucking for you, sir. Congratulations. I'll I'll blacktop survey little engine. Got to get into what happened you fucked. It all up Zac. All right. Camshaft? Chef Chris I'm looking at a two thousands INFINITI m forty five versus a Lexus GS for thirty for Japanese V8. eight highway cruiser, the Lexus Lexus is better. Yeah. The Infinity looks cool. I I'm with that Infinity for looking cool, but the G S four thirty s the better car. It just is the I've been looking at L four thirties. I they're awesome. I kind of want to build an thirty drift car, but I should. But I'd I'd drop in at to Jay something. The I like the big body. If cars, the I drove VIP Lexa with th with fenders that were like this fucking that it was hot areas when junction produce I came to American like two thousand six I thought it was like the coolest thing. So like rides magazine was like, we'll do we did like this huge feature on like, VIP culture. It was really RAD. Yeah. I've always liked the sense of humor. With those cars is great Nicolas says, should I turbo or K twenty swap? My Integra type r I already have the k twenty sitting well the turbulent, of course. Sped. Turbo twenty duh. I mean, I soon as tight bar has no engine in it. But the I get turbo the k twenty. There you go Adam says with the unprofessional meeting with the MC envoys recently in Sydney's are going to be a crossover episode soon. We'd love to do some stuff with mighty car Mods. I'll be honest. They were kind of one of the first two pages that I really took notice of and those guys do some rat stuff. Unfortunately, we are able to do anything while we were there. So there's nothing coming up. But we want to go back down there for summer NATs, which the oh, yeah. Kind of the ultimate burnout. Yeah. So we're talking about trying to build something and go down there with I don't know if it'll happen this year, but we will we will make way back down there. Australia's such like the home of the Hoon's. Have you? Have you Zealand yet either? This shit. So I got an invite to go run a lead foot? Oh, yeah. We went. Yeah. So so so I got an invite to run if I can get the Audi done in time. The problem is it needs to hit the boat by December. So we might send our thirty six down there. Instead lead foot is great. Good good. No. I haven't I'd like to go, but it into good based on what I've seen from Goodwood. It's much less official Goodwood arts. No, Ascott guardrails, no security guards. Great events where people could potentially die at or way. That's why like ralliers. Yeah. You could fly drone that right track? Don't give all spectators should be in as much danger. As the driver at all times. It was very very cool event. Nicolas says thoughts on rob Dom four rotor. So that car actually shares some suspension and drivetrain from the unicorn, oh, it's got the that's the thing. I think so I know that I think so. Yeah. Robs a really cool guy. I wish he'd get his car finished. But I can't speak 'cause I don't get my car's done, but he's taking them really long time to build have you met. Rob before I have is really really like show who'll Malik it. I did a did like a Jeep event. And he was there in the Vegas. He was very chill super. I'd like to see it done. It seems ambitious project. Good luck. It's it's definitely one of those things where it took is one of those projects that like the internet doesn't understand that people's lives. Get in the way. Yeah. Like other things happen. And like, no. Everyone's so mad that his car isn't done and people give me shell. Time. Like are you done? I'm like, you know, have like a fulltime job. But it took four years for people to build my fucking, FOX, buddy. Smart people paying I'm building my own shit in the middle of the night, all my videos until three in the morning because that's the only time I have to work on my own cars. Yeah. Shane PJ thirteen. That's a Pearl Jam reference to know many engineers about to get my degree in looking to work in the auto industry. I'm looking to be part of unique and interesting projects. I not I don't you. Probably do. I went to school from Glen. Yeah. I didn't use any of that degree. And I ended up finishing with journalism. So I don't know what to tell you. I I don't know where that goes. But I I went into mechanical engineering because I wanted to work in the automotive industry. And I thought that was a good path in and then I realized that I was going to be someone else's number monkey. Yeah. And I didn't want to be that like I didn't want to be the on the mat together for someone else because I wasn't good enough of an engineer to be at the top. Yeah. So I wanted to be the best that what I did. So did something else. I wanted to design cars, and and people will you have. Well, you have to be mechanical engineers, like no I wanted to be fucking chip foos. But no-one said go to arts center and learned to draw dude. I just did a panel. Chip foos. He's great. He's great sweetest man came and Wayne Carini, right? There was so you. Yeah. Right. So so just real quickly. It was at the scene center stage. I do panels like every year because I just like you. I enjoy talking voice, which is great with these headphones. But. No. But I really I enjoy talking about what we do is a culture, and what we do because like beneath all this and behind everything from again, like I one of my main goals is like keeping car culture alive. Right. Like, that's just huge thing for me. And so Haggerty. Did this like thing on like why we drive and I did talk with them. I did that last year was that they did that was they have you talked to the Peterson. And then like, hey, would you mind sitting on a panel Sima? Sure, no problem. And like, I look at my my haven't assistant. I know that sounds pretentious. But I'm a busy guy. So my systems like, hey, you have a thing at three o'clock, and you need to show up like twenty minutes before and blah, blah, blah. So like, okay, cool. I don't look at any of it. I just know that I'm talking last year. I talked in like, you know, like behind the cafeteria in a room for like twelve people. Right. So this year, I show up get there. And I'm like, and I just see chip foods and Wayne in like mceal from Haggerty Mikhael Haggerty, and and Wade Kawasaki from Sima, and I'm like. Am I at the right thing. Like, why am I here talking to you guys? And then he says, Mr. Delgado. Yeah. And then the stool has my name on it. And they introduce everyone, and they're like this is blah, blah, blah. This is what he's done. This is what he's done, and I'm like sitting at the end feeling like I've shown up to the wrong party under dressed, and then they'll like and a man who needs no introduction. They're not talking about me. You must have missed the car. Clearly. And block. I'm the guy behind the guy. Sorry. But it was it was cool. A good group chips. Great I met chip years ago during like the chip boom with rides when he was doing overhaul. Yeah. He's and he remembered me which I thought was well, he's like a true. He's like a real by really respect. When you meet people, and they remember you when they're like way way outside of the like atmosphere. Yeah. And it's always cool. When you're like, he's like, hey, how you been? I haven't seen since the magazine days. And I was like, oh, yeah. It's weird. I had a very fun night with with all of those guys at Sima last year at at a dinner where a lot of wine was served, and there was some fun stories throat around. It was good good grew gals them. But yeah, there's there's a tips for his engineering. What's I say, we we still people before just find a shop that or place doing things you were interested in and just trying to get an internship trying to get an entry level job. Like, you know, you may be overqualified for something. But that's what you'll learn to build and do the cool shit that you want to do internships in the most important thing you'll ever do because you'll either learn that you don't actually want to do what you thought you wanted to do which is what happened to me in engineering, I did an internship. And I was like, oh, really this isn't what the pamphlet looked like I was going to be driving like race cars like this is not what it is. Then you know, and then I didn't intend ship in in magazine journalism. And I was like oh my God. I love this. The greatest thing ever. I want to tell stories. Yeah. Makes sense. How effective a racing simulators practicing driving skills? Very very, I think very, yeah. Very especially effective for like learning race tracks and stuff like lines, really good. And I also think that there's obviously an eye hand coordination. I mean, you can send their kids coming straight out of like east like e gaming and getting into race cars and actually like being able to put down like a decent laugh, although they've never driven a race car. But I think that that's I think that the whole e- gaming thing is something that we all really need to take seriously because I think it's really easy to kind of laugh at it. But like, I think that that we're gonna see a whole new crop drivers that like come up from that way. Yeah. It's just a lot easier to get into it. I got an a bit of a tiff with from Forza because they had their highest level racing. And they're using controllers. And I was like, bro. I give them shiver that all the time. I mean, it is like a partner of. But the the issue is is that that is just where it it actually has to do more with the you can actually be faster with the controller than with the steering wheel. So if you're if you're competitive the steering wheel is disadvantaged, if I'm not helping you practice driving snow and and that's to win the game. But if you actually wanna learn getting yourself a good setup because we actually have some pretty red sim set up at the building now that we play four zero. We also play a set, of course on a few other things on in a set. Of course us a fan of ours. Made the Angeles forest instead, of course, a dude I just saw that it's so driven. Sit download amazed it on Instagram. And I was like oh my God. This is so good is affec- you it's rat about it is now on Sunday morning. I don't have the. I don't have to deal with that trial. This dude made it and I set my friends got a real nice sim with a manual and a clutch the real the whole deal. And I got an McLaren f one GT are and did my loop at an unbelievable speed. And if I get any new racetrack in a semi crashing a million times, not this fucking right around you knew it. Yup. Was perfect quick. So this is kind of like before games got to like real sim level. But first time I ever drove the Nurburgring I showed up and Tony harmar had played it like religiously knew it inside out like he just we would at our house. We live together in an apartment, she was like the worst five years of my life. But I love the Cape, but we should never let together, but he played it like nonstop, and I didn't. So we went to the ring and I took first lap, and he gave me rally notes for the whole thing. And I ran a bridge to gantry under under ten minutes. Dan, like nine forty or so that with him just giving me notes on my first lap. Which was the fact that that translates, it's you know. Oh, you know last question before we get out of here Twenty-eight thousand we're done. I'm ready to go twenty eight thousand. Cure parents house. And I thought we were talking forever all night. You guys wanna go all night. Let us know. We'll just. Accordion, whereas we're just going to keep it going twenty eighteen WRX for two thousand eighteen GTI coming out of Tacoma. I think GTI betting GTRI looking far better tier? I'm I see route to but the new ones are. No, no, I'm sure your Cy. I don't think I would. I don't think I would do either of those. I wouldn't either. I'd get the fastest four or four R s although they sell them anymore. Yeah. Well, a lot more expensive than those. But I would get. Yeah. Probably the GTI between those two what what what's the other salute with the other solution there an F R asks us market. I think. There are so many awesome card. Focus S T. Probably rather have a focus as to they still make that Yvo a Yvonne. Do it. Ten coming out. Jim content will be releasing on Amazon. I so night. So we're doing like what we're calling like a first look because it's still has an official launch on YouTube. So it'll be December seventh on Amazon and then ten days later, easy number to remember on YouTube December seventeenth on nights on the Hennigan channel. So and we've got then the Amazon show starts is that we watched the trailer for early. Yes. So the actual Amazon shows starts on November sixteenth, which is what like two ten nine days. Yeah. Oh, wait. Oh shit. It's a week away. Well, yeah. So it's it starts, wait. Yeah. Wow. That's crazy. Anyway. Well, I'm going up going on next week, which because I won't even be able to like watch the show and it comes out, but Gymkhana vowels is like I'm actually really really stoked out came out. Like, I think even if you don't like cars, you'll you might like the shut trailer looked really good. We just watched this. Really awesome. So so quickly on that. Like, they came to us. Actually, I I went, and I I wrote the treatment, and I pitched it to Amazon and for years people have come to us and been like, hey, you guys should do it like reality TV show. And I'm like, we that's not our thing. Like, I don't want. We don't want fake drama. I don't want this to be like an argument between me and Ken and all of that. And so on and so on and in the end, we we pitched his idea to them because we're like it's ten years. You kind of makes sense they were like a really good partner because they kind of let us do whatever we wanted. But it was actually the hardest Gymkhana we ever made. And so many things went wrong that ended up creating like a really good story. I thought we were going to have to kind of like force some other things into it. And I don't mean force like never we never want to force like drama or moments. But there was definitely this. Like, it was just like everything was a struggle everything kind of like was harder to put together. And it's just kind of cool to see we've been really quiet about how we make the films. We've never really had on like this is the formula. This is how we do it. And like, we really show everything and in the past if Gymkhana was coming out like, you didn't even know the location until four days before the video now if you watch the prime stuff, it's the exact opposite. Like, you're going to know the tricks. We struggled with you're going to know where the car broke you're going to know where this happened. You're going to know all the issues, and you're going to actually see some of the making of it. And then have it come out. And I don't know if that's gonna make it better or worse. Like, we've had fans say like, Aw, this looks awesome. But I'm gonna wait watch Gymkhana. And then go back and watch it, which maybe even on me, whatever you whatever your experiences, which is what makes video on demand. So good. So, but it's it's RAD for us to like take something that we. I developed for YouTube and have someone like Amazon prime be like, yeah, we're going to do like a whole show around it. Which is it's it's pretty cool to see all of that come together, and like in I think it's going to be a better show than I think a lot of people look at it in there like oh we've seen BTS before. But it's really like a different show. And it tells a lot about the story of Ken, which I think is a lot of people don't really know like Kennedy, just an easy target for people to be like he's this or that or or there's a kid you you either absolutely love them or you hate them or whatever. But I think it actually shows a lot more of like the human side of like, what can is like been going through in his life. And like how it's you know, it's it's sort of sad. And like he could have probably been a really good race car driver. I mean, he is charter, but he could have been really top level racecar driver. If he had started at the age, everyone else starts out. Yes. Six thirty seven. So I'm thirty eight right now. Like imagine slot starting a race car race car driver career today. Yeah. With no previous experience. I can't even imagine. What the previous experience? I have like I I wanna go race cars, but I'll be like some gentleman driver like I'm never going to be above that. Yeah. So do those fucking good show? Thanks for coming in. All your guests. Yep. Yeah. Totally. Once you start taking your phone out over because people are texting me because this is the latest we ever go. If if if it goes like like this like at fucking to our show is a good show is this the longest you've done not ever. But it's it's it probably is the top fifteen or so can we push it to the longest 'cause I hope car stories on Peterson have the longest show every. It was it was like it was it was probably only like ninety five minutes, but they sixty three hours and forty minutes with Joe Rogan, a really. How was Rogan show? Great. So I'll be really special chairs that you sit in that are better for like long podcasting. It's awesome money. I I'll be honest. I totally overlooked gerege. So like at a time when others didn't I think like now like right now like I just like he wasn't really in my smear like, and I've listened to some of his podcast because I love podcast. But I never really gave him that much. And I watched his most recent standup raced if it was really good. And then I went back, and I watched a couple of his others. And now I've been listening to his podcast every day kind of bummed that like I didn't get onto him. Earlier has never been can't blog racing of Joe Rogan listening. So chose a good, dude. He he means. Well, he's he's a little bit more guy to right? Yeah. Yeah. He's got for you. For you at last night's event St. with Steve stroke, or whatever. Yeah. I guess he was there because it's like some car that's building for him or something prop possibly Joe's. Joe has is getting a an icon f j J A landcruiser eighties landcruiser from icon. He's got to nine hundred ninety six four and he's got a shark works nine hundred seventy two three r s have you had Jonathan ward on the show a bunch of times. Yeah. So I can come back. Yes. We all my I didn't realize how asking you to do the. You know, you have. And I'll be honest like I go, do you wanna come on the show, and you go? Yes. And I go are you available? This this this this this, and then you go st-. Nothing. Nothing. Don't even opening because I want you to get the read notification. Yeah. It's just a really busy life that stand. So that's why I'm not mad about it. I'm happy you're here now. And I'm not mad when you can't come. We I want to do we want to start doing podcasts place. We'll have you come down. We can do it. Apparently, you guys can get it done. So I just enjoyed this. And I don't have enough time to be in the video content that we do and I miss out on that. But I I enjoy this. So I enjoy doing this more than I enjoy making videos. Yeah. Me too. I like this. We have a show idea. Which is I think like it's somewhat similar to like in a way of what you do. But we have the podcast idea called good cop bad cop, and the whole idea of it is we go through Craigslist ads and is it a good cop or bad cop? Meaning like, yeah. That we're back and some of the shows might end up with me calling the person in China by the that totally works because it's like me. And if you're the guys have this car, and then it becomes a history story, you know, you find a car and you're like, oh, it's a mighty max. Let's talk about the Mitsubishi eighty max in lake all these cool things about that. You don't know totally because I have good shows like with. Pedia of like random car knowledge about things that are good at coming up with ideas for shit, man. You're the best at it. Now. You're just you just fluffing me. But I appreciate it. Thanks for finally making it happen. Yep. Yep. About the dirt. So I can bring the nine eleven. Yeah. A? Rod would is right around the corner. Yeah. We will be there. Go to Radwan, Houston, the the party tonight before it my house. Yes, you can walk to and still I don't wanna give I don't want to give too much away. Because it's not settled yet. But we are trying to do a premier for Jim Khana ten oh fun that will be open to the public in a really cool type of setting in Los Angeles. Like right around like, the fifteenth sixteenth kind of thing. So keep your eye out for kind of like just Mark down your calendars because it's an event that I've been wanting to do for fifteen years now, and it's finally happening. Also, I'll tell you when we shut the cameras we all right? Well, thanks for listening guys. Appreciate you guys donations Brian Scotto hooligan. And this momentary podcast is powered by shout engine.

"Non profit and nonprofit marketing. Nonprofits presents nonprofit, everything the podcast about everything nonprofit with your host and shirt and Stacey wedding. Well, welcome everybody. To yet. Another episode of nonprofit, everything to podcast where you send us questions about nonprofit stuff. And Stacey I do our best to answer them to the best of our ability. I guess that's right. That's for sure try it. Sometimes we have to bring in experts to answer questions that we don't know. This is a production of the alliance for Nevada nonprofits, which if you're not familiar with. It is the state association of nonprofits in Nevada one of testing thing you'll find on their website right now, they just released the nonprofit compensation survey for twenty eighteen. So if you work for a nonprofit, if you are the board member of a nonprofit, if you are getting paid by nonprofit, and you wanna make sure that you're being paid fairly or like as an average of what other nonprofits and divide are being paid. This is a pretty good investment. There's a discount if you're an an member if you're not an end member, you should be an end member because there's all kinds of other cool stuff that goes along with it. And with that let's jump right in. Would like to know what factors you should look at try to project cash flow, recently, my issue as van that the money is promised, but we have government grants that are based on them reimbursing us after we've spent the funds than they are slow and I'm short on cash flow. Those are the worst, and you know. Hate to tell people that. But that's the the worst part about giving getting government grants is so many of them are effectively contracts, and they're gonna pay you after you've proven to them that the work is done, which is if if you tried to run someone wanted to run their business like that they would go out of money. They would go to business so fast. You just run out of money is a terrible thing. And the more work. You do the better you do it. The faster you do it. The more you spend the more they have to pay you later, and they send their people to come and argue about every little technical detail that you did wrong, and then end up paying you three quarters of what they originally promised. And then get really grumpy about it it's and then you have to pay for an expensive. If you if you do enough of it, then you have to have a special audit. That that's even more expensive and breaking out in hives, just as we're talking. It's so ugly government grants, or like, some people think you you go to board meeting board like aren't there any government grants? You just wanna like like, maybe I'll just punch you in the exam. Really do. You wanna be in my shoes day, we're gonna have way bigger and away more complicated before we even get there. So yeah project so yes projecting. Cash flow is is really just a matter of sitting down with a whiteboard or a piece of paper and trying to figure out when the money goes out. And when the money comes back in government grants complicate that. Because the money all goes out. I the the good news about that. As it gives you an opportunity to talk to other donors about look at all this good stuff. We're doing we're actually getting a bunch of money from the government, but they're jerks, and they pay us in this weird way. So so we would love to have some money up front, so. Yeah. As far as putting the. Together. That's just the process. The process is knowing when it goes in. And when it goes out hard part is trying to remember everything especially especially if you don't keep perfect records. Like if you keep really good records. You just look at last year. And you say here's kind of what happened what came in and just like you do with your personal finances. Like, my an Mike car insurance surprises me every year. It's like December. I'm like car insurance. You know, hard registration. I know the exact same way since I was eighteen. Surprises me now mental. Yes. Block it out. So that's the if you can go through and keeping track of those things and figuring out where the money comes out. And then you wanna make sure that if there are negative numbers. So you you you have to figure out sort of generally, you pay your Bill, you put it together monthly so so you do twelve periods, and if any one of those periods the number at the bottom is negative, which means you have to spend more than you've got in your account. Plus what you're bringing in their couple options. One is to try to find owners that will help you with that other one is to talk to a Bank because the Bank will give you a loan short term loan. They call it a line of credit and pretty much all nonprofits, if you're if you're big enough to even be considering this problem, you need to talk to your Bank about a line of credit. So many of them because you're nonprofit if you're a good nonprofit and you're doing good work. You can get a line of credit that doesn't actually cost you anything to open. So if if your Bank of tells, you that's not the case keep talking to other bankers thoughts and somebody will finally go. You know, what we can do that for you? So what it does is? It provides say you say as you're looking at this. You're gonna spend a half a million dollars out of your own pocket to get this government program that you're not gonna actually get funded for six months later. So as you look at the numbers, and one of those dips and dips to one hundred twenty five thousand dollars, you might open a line of credit for two hundred thousand dollars you pay interest on it. The interesting thing about that is that that interest can actually be considered something that you can get reimbursed for that can be part of your overhead because you have to do the government can actually you can actually make sure that you're in Clinton it because if you didn't mean, technically, if you didn't have that government grant, you wouldn't actually have to go in the hole, which means you wouldn't have to have a line of credit Apso that interest payment can be part of that just make sure. You've got it. Baked in that. You've asked permission. You know, always ask it's in the, you know, the old adage is never ask permission only ask for the absolute opposite when it comes to government grants. You have to ask permission before you spend the money if you spend it and then permission they're going to say, no you already did. It actually have to ask. I make sure that it's totally okay. Makes totally documented and make sure that you put it in properly. So so you can get a line of credit kind of help you float you pay interest on that you pay back once the money comes in the banks happy, the government's happy, you're happy, and you're done actually think cashflow analysis. I don't a lot of nonprofits. I don't, you know, at least small ones rates struggle with this. I don't think there's always enough. They don't there's not enough hours in the day to do everything they need to do. So that gets put on the back burner. And that's when they run into problems, probably not the ones that are dealing with government grants. But still I love the idea of mapping out. Like, you said on a whiteboard sort of what is the year? Look like, an okay, we're having a fundraiser fundraising event this month. What do we project? It's gonna come in and win win is at all. Going to come in. And and I think that it's a good planning tool. Right that sort of supports and goes in line with if you do have a strategic plan or sort of your plan for the year of what you're what you're going to do. So I think it's a cool opportunity even educate other staff like sit down, and you know, maybe it's a staff meeting because I don't think staff and others. Always appreciate all the ins and outs of this kind of stuff and realize why you is the the person in charge of finance or whomever. Whatever you sit on the org chart. Right. What what's keeping you up at night? And I mean, it's it's it's really kind of a learning experience. I think which is super cool. I know I went through on. I was like, wow. Like, I learned so much here that I didn't know before just understanding all the nuances of when money comes in and goes out, and why we need a constant is there a way to have a constant revenue stream. So there's one thing that you touched on the that I think trips up a lot of people too. So you're having an event how much you gonna bring in. Yeah. And you don't know you can look at what happened last year. But this year is might be different. You know, you didn't last year you had Michael boob way headlining this year. You have a guy that does tricks with a dog. I'm so you don't know that you have the same number of people coming. So so those kinds of things are really complicated to try to put together their their two tricks that I think everybody should use when they're putting together a projection like that especially for fundraising one is to like put a likelihood on every single gift that you're putting in. So if if you think there's a seventy five percent chance of getting one hundred thousand dollars, you just multiply those two things together, and you get seventy five thousand and that that gives you sort of a weighted average of all of the revenue that's coming in. If that doesn't make sense. I'll maybe put an example that you can click to link that you can you can actually understand that without me trying to battle about it. The second thing you can do that sort of strengthens those percentages and amounts. Get as. Many brains in the rooms you can to kind of hash those out. So if it's one person making it up, you're going to be close if you've got everybody in the organization talking about like, I think the percentage sixty percent, I think the percentages eighty percent. And once you've kind of haggled it down to where you think it belongs. That's going to be way more clo- way closer right to the actual number that you're going to end up with its sort of the wisdom of crowds sort of medically proven years and years and years that more people try to come up with a likelihood of something happening. If you get a lot of people together, they usually come up with a number. That's very very close. So you don't have to worry about like, what do we think that doesn't way all on your shoulders? If you get all your board members together to sit down to go through this process. First of all, it's a fun thing to to get your board members to say like, okay who can ask for money. And I think I can get a thousand dollars out of this person. So what's the likelihood a fifty percent chance of getting a thousand dollars put him down for five hundred bucks? Absolutely. So that's that's one interesting way to do it to be able to come up with those those revenue numbers that aren't like, we're definitely getting this. And there's a more formal term for this. You may know it Andy and I'm losing it right now. But some people do, you know, don't even look we talked about donors helping phone the gaps. But you could also go to a donor and say, I need an interest free loan from you. Right. Like, that's what the request is. And I'll pay we'll pay you back when we get the money. But like we need to figure out like what is the can we set up an arrangement like that that you're like our interest free Bank to some degree while we're waiting for some of these gaps. So it's not outright donation, but it still helps you through the tough times. Absolutely. Foundations can do that too. They're called program related investments. Sometimes they abbreviated as PR to make it more complicated. Right. So. Dacian might be able to help you with that too. They could give you two million dollars. And you're paying two percent interest on that two million dollars. Whereas a Bank would be a higher interest rate, and they're they're fulfilling their mission by providing that capital to you because they're foundation they need to do those kinds of things they considered a program related investment. Kosher for them everybody wins and then final thought on this. And this is coming and I want you to push back India if I'm just sorta being way too conservative with it. But I'm more of a I take more of a conservative approach with everything with money. So I feel like from a cash flow standpoint, you do your best to try to be accurate. And yet I still think being a bit conservative is probably on the safer side is is that fair or would you push back saying, no don't be like conservative. Meaning, you know. I'm not, you know, if I really think I'm going to bring in eighty thousand and I have a lot of math to it. I might might say, okay. Seventy or seventy five just to myself, a little cushion in case that doesn't happen is that is that even the right thing to do. Or would you say, no, really bad idea stage? I mean, this is a great questions for development person. But I in my experience, former CFO experience working with development people, they are sort of inherently. Realistic. So let's say conservative realistic. So they, you know, every once in a while, you get somebody who doesn't know what they're doing and they come in. And they're like, we're gonna raise a jillion dollars. So you know that that person's wrong. But the most of the time if they say, I think I can get you know, I've got a seventy five percent chance of getting one hundred thousand dollars out of this people people. They're usually right because they're they've done it for a long time. They kind of have a sense of of what the answer is going to be. I mean, sometimes you miss, but then that's the whole point of using those percentages. It's like, you know, we here's one that we didn't expect at all. Maybe I've been lucky, but in my experience like they've always been really accurate like development folks are really accurate not high not low like you miss every time. You miss a little bit of a little bit higher a little bit low. But nobody's ever just like wildly wrong. 'cause at an ideal world, right? They've prime the pump to the point where they should know what the donors capable of giving and we'll give. Yep. Good point. We have yet another silent auction coming up, and I feel like our frequent donors are getting tired of us. Is there a way to spice up our silent auction requests? So sounds like the your people you're asking to give you things or tired of giving you things that's what it sounds like because you're having lots of silent auctions because your entire fundraising plan is based on events that sends like first of all that's a terrible idea. Right. The definition of eggs and putting all of your eggs in one basket. Right. So I think one thing that I've seen so to answer the question one thing that I've seen to to maybe get some new things is to make sure that you've got a committee involved. So that you're not having the same staff. Ask the same people over and over again because again, it's all about relationships. Right. It's who you know, and who you can comfortably ask. So if you were going to Asian has a committee involved, where they could then sort of help you find things because they all have people that they know, and they can they can ask can you donate gift certificates or garbage or whatever it is that you put in silent auctions that might be one way. Right. Well, and you know, what else I'm thinking. I mean, I think that's absolutely idea. But I also thinking sometimes we okay? So I'm I'm guilty of this rate. I've done something. Let's say so many times that I'm tired of it. And I project a project my own being tired of doing something on the donor when that may not even exist or on the other party, right? So. Like, I think it's almost like when they say they seem like they're getting tired of us. I mean, I think it's almost less directly said, okay? This loss time or I'm so annoyed with you coming to be again. Like, I think in some ways it's a check in with without relationship saying has gotten to be too much, and you know, or could you we want to give you a break this year. So could you refer to us to a friend of yours or a colleague that maybe is someone so we don't have to bother you again. But realize from a company perspective, it's a potential marketing opportunities. So who knows if they're getting tired of it? I mean, like, I think you've gotta have that direct conversation unless they've given every signal that they are tired and like wanna stop. I think you have to sort of have that dialogue at least. That's what I would do. Because if I'm sensing not is probably something I need to figure out is that going on in my own head. Or is that actually how the person feels? That's a really good point. Because the what you're going to decide whether or not it was a good silent auction item is whether or not somebody bid on it. Right. And not whether or not you feel like it's a. Good thing. Yeah. Some of the weirdest things of the things that go for the most money. I've are. Oh my gosh. Anti think the whole fund need. I think we've seen some of that. But some organizations that are getting away from just because let's be honest like getting away from just the same old packages. The same old shows and entertainment, we've all seen like I also think there's such a thing as like, okay. Maybe it's not getting as many tangible items, and it's more like, okay, it's a silent auction item to fund needs. So we're gonna start the bid at this. And or for twenty five dollars for everyone who signs up you get to give us one counseling session for the people were serving or whatever it is. You know, what I mean like, so maybe there's ways to also take some of the pressure off of of everybody. Right. And and do more of that and get more in touch with your mission. I self any other co founders have some time constraints that are hindering, our nonprofit, focus. I want to see if there was an alternative to winding down as a possible to pause nonprofit for some period of time. If so could we skip board meetings annual reports at cetera until we resumed. Technically. No. So there's no way to pause anything. If you don't do your paperwork. So if you don't file with the secretary state, if you don't get your business license, if you don't file a ninety nine ninety end with the IRS after a certain period of time like three years after three years, you just have to start all over again when they don't they don't they don't tell you can just start it up with the same number. You have to go through the entire process and start everything over again. That said your bylaws are the what sort of describes the kinds of things that you're gonna nation needs to do. So if you're having monthly board meetings right now, that's because you decided to have monthly board meetings. It has nothing to do with what what any regulatory bodies telling you. You're required to do. So you can keep everything above board. Make sure everything is kosher have one board meeting a year. If you want to just make sure that that's what your bylaws say make sure you fill out the secretary of state stuff. Make sure you file the nine ninety and every year it's gonna have zeros on it's gonna take you fifteen seconds. And and then you're you're keeping everything current and ready to go. And when you guys are finally, you know, you have the attention back or you find this magic funding source or something to make everything start again. Then you can just pick up where you left off. But you just know. Yeah. There's no pause, unfortunately. And I also think there's something to be said about you know, it's interesting because this question talks about we have some time constraints. So is there a way? Didn't gauge other people perhaps rate, maybe there's an opportunity to engage others that are passionate about this mission that don't have as many time constraints, or if you do have money that you could even hire someone in a small level to help keep it moving forward because they think what's sad about this. Even if they were to cut back like you said and do one meeting a year, or whatever, you know, do some of the bare bones basics. You lose a ton of momentum. Right. And it is going to be hard. If you have time constraints now, that's just going to get harder than more, this work musician grows. So there's a little bit of kind of you know, we gotta talk about the elephant in the room where we all committed enough to this. Or is it every time our schedules? Get busy. We're going to be like, all right. Yeah. We gotta go on, you know, go on a pause or do the bare minimum. I mean, it just that's not sustainable, and that's not healthy for anybody. That's a good point. And I've noticed with with very small nonprofits that don't have any staff if you have just the bare minimum number of board members. And nobody's the impetus. Like, usually what what happens is one. Of the one of the three people is like super into it. And does everything burns out because they're not getting any help absolute? Right. So so, you know, I don't know where that that question is coming from. But I think your point is really good that if you can't if you're if you're too busy to do it like why are you even bothering? It just folded up like ten years from now if you feel like you've got that urge to do it again, go find another organization that's doing similar work and help them or get a fiscal sponsor, or you know, there's plenty other ways to do it that don't involve paperwork really was actually it's funny. You mentioned fiscal sponsor, and that's what was going in my head thing. And this is a great opportunity. And I think I would love more people to maybe try out a nonprofit I through fiscal sponsorship. Right. So like, you know to sit there and say, okay, I don't have to deal with I'm gonna pay somebody feed deal with all of the admin and stuff. I don't wanna do the counting and all this stuff. I don't want to do for this give me that you know, the legal umbrella to do this. But it allows you little more flexibility than I think it does when when he's gone out and done the whole ball of wax have your own five. Oh, one C three. I think this just makes it I think you have almost a moral obligation to you either or serious about it. Or you're not reminds me what Bob said a couple of weeks ago, which was you know, people come into him and like. I've already. Hi, my attorney, and I've got the ten Twenty-three done. Bob's like that's not where you start. And I think that's I mean, maybe it's too inexpensive to start the night to start the ten twenty three into get your five three the fact that they made an easy version that you can do really fast made it. So a lot of people kind just jump in with the feet, not realizing it that it's going to be complicated and take a lot of work. I don't know. I think the fiscal sponsor, I think the resistance on fiscal sponsorship is number one people don't know about it people if that's an option they just figure I'm going to start a nonprofit, and then they Google nonprofit. How do I start it? Right. And then they go. So the first answer should be don't. Yes, maybe consider a fiscal sponsorship. That's -solutely to get your feet wet. Make sure you understand how everything works, and then kind of get up, you know, better experience in the marketplace. I think the other challenge is that there's not a whole lot of. There's not a penalty for failure an on profit. So if you start at you spend a little bit of money, you get the board together in the next kind of go, and that was harder than we thought. It was kinda blows away. Whereas if you're starting a business or something where you've got a bunch of cash involved. That's like the, you know, I don't wanna lose money. So I'm gonna keep working on it. You know, I'm going to have to get an actual job if this is gonna work out fiscal sponsorship because a lot of times that takes money upfront that might be one of the barriers because if you talk to somebody that's going to be a fiscal sponsor for you. And they're going to say, yeah, we can do that for you. But it's going to cost the amount of money for us to do the accounting and things like that. I think that's another barrier. It's like actually cheaper to get ten twenty three done. Sadly, and you know, I don't think people like to lose the control, we know a fiscal sponsorship, depending on you know, I mean, oftentimes, you're saying, okay, I get to advise or I get to depending on the arrangement. Right. I get to recommend that. These are the things we do. But if you're using someone else's five, oh, one C three, and they're your fiscal sponsor, your people wanna lose control and a good fiscal sponsor. Will make you do things you don't necessarily want to make you keep track of stuff that you have no attention to keeping track of because it's their five three on the line and not yours. So yeah, it's a tougher sell. But it's a good option. I agree. Okay. Stacey our volunteer manager resigned. And we're looking to fill the position before we do. So we're debating where it lives on the org. Chart does this position belong under programs development or somewhere else? And my answer is what is the end goal of that position. What what are you trying to -ccomplish without position because I think that dictates where belongs right because you see some people who have only to your programs, and it's really a way to help provide extra human resource capacity to their staff, and I've seen those volunteer positions can live under even HR or operations in some way. And then you see others where perhaps it's really kind of more of we wanna make more programmatic impact. And that's where the success, and how that positions going to be measured. So it lives under programs, and then you've got others, right. That it's like, okay, we really wanna live on Tuesday become donors, which we all would love to write. And there's obviously a huge opportunity for that Senate lives under development. So the first question is stepping back and saying what does success look like for the specific rate, and then then figuring out where it lives, and you know, I would advocate. I know this doesn't exist often, and you probably have to be a pretty large organization to do this. But I. Think I love it. When you see organizations that raise a volunteer position to the level of sort of other other manager director levels realizing it's kind of cross functional and conserve all those purposes rate like could do all of those things that I just said. Yeah. The that raises even more. So I was like trying to think how is gonna help answer this question. And then you just raised another one, which I think is even more interesting is the sorry person. Who asked the question we're going to answer a different one down a rabbit hole. So like the in in lots of organizations I've noticed that they get stuck on. You've got the executive director of the CEO's. You got that top person. Then you've got the next level. And there's usually somebody in charge of finance CFO, somebody in charge of development most of the time, and there's somebody that's in charge of programs. So that's kinda stack this one. And then there's three hundred active, but in an organization, depending on the organization, there are other activities that are just as important to have a direct line of contact with the executive director, and it's always super challenging because I don't know if it's this three people like have being in charge of everybody else. But it's always sort of super challenging to bring more people up to that top level. So in the volunteer, for example. I think I mean, it's ugly answer, but the answer is it depends, which is pretty much. Exactly what you said it depends on what you're gonna nation does. Because if you look at some organizations volunteers are really there to support fundraising. You know, some of the volunteers may be there to support fundraising summer doing programs some are doing other things. So they can't go anywhere. One organization. I was at a had a couple of executives or fighting over who was going to take control of the volunteer to it had been under development for years, and they wanted to move it under programs because programs had more stuff for them to do. So they the so the program chief program person grabbed them manage to coup, right and got the development people over and after about six months like ran screaming out of the building with his hair on fire because he really didn't have to deal with the volunteers who was just too much people for him dealing with people fast stuff manage the people like he wanted the workout of them, but didn't want to have to deal with. All of the humans that were involved in getting the work done. So yeah, I was kind of a double edged sword in that situation. I I like it under the development side because my opinion about volunteers a lot of times, they may be doing the work for you may be important for them doing the work for you. But one of the other reasons that there there is so that they can see what an amazing job you're doing. So that when they get a direct mail piece that they're more likely to respond to it. So there it's sort of pipeline into a long-term donor. I read an article the other day that talked about how volunteers within an orbit like volunteers are ten times more likely to give to that organization. And I didn't realize it was that high of a stat. But I believe at right, they see and touch the work all day long. So I tend to lean in your in your position to about sort of more towards development. But I also am like I'd love to raise the profile into all the volunteer professionals managers coordinators out there listening to this to you because I think sometimes you are. It's almost like I consider volunteers almost like they fall into the same trap. Marketing people do where everybody needs a piece of you different things. Right. And it's like how do we elevate that that it's important enough that perhaps it's on? It's not just three people on that org. Chart right under the executive director, which also volunteer position that's up there because it's critical critical organization. Right. And then the the other the other way to fix that too is not necessarily to make sure that it's elevated, but to make sure that there's a direct line of Asian and that this person's getting the amount of support that they need. So so if your title is volunteer coordinator, and there's nobody above you. With title, volunteer. Anything it could copy of this podcast and make sure that your ED lessons. Because you need to have much more visibility because you're more important to the organization than you may be getting paid for number one. And that people may recognize I feel the same way about IT is a lot of times a lot of IT used to be, you know, it was the one nerdy dude who sat in the corner, and you ask them the questions because he didn't know why your mouse, stop moving, right and say reboot it. But now like there is literally no system anywhere in any nonprofit that doesn't have some sort of technology component attached to it everywhere. And so everybody needs a piece of that IT departments time. And and that IT group needs to be able to have some sort of control over what's happening. So if you're building if you're building a new building, you might not think one of the first people need to talk to the IT person because that person's going to tell you like if you wanna have wireless everywhere, you're going to have to talk to us when you're doing the architecture stuff, right? They have to be involved in all of this high level decisions, and they're not just like low level troubleshooter and vol. Cheers is pretty much the same thing. That's a lately. All righty. That's a wrap for today. And we're so glad you joined us. Thanks so much as a friendly reminder. We love to hear from you. Because you are the ones that make this interesting, right?

Parrot says please enclosed one barely used titlis Pro v one to be used at your discretion I recently landed my retirement dream job as arranger at the bare foot. Golf Resort in North Myrtle beach side of Hootie and the blowfish is Monday. After the masters one of the perks of my low paying position is that I routinely find a dozen or so oh very slightly used golf balls each shift most of what I call one hit wonders which some guy overpaid for and then promptly lost with one swing sound solicitor like I found the enclosed ball in the left rough thirteenth hole on her fazio. Course which by the way is not for you as it has over one hundred forty bunkers strategically placed throughout when I picked it up and saw the low. Oh Guy mmediately exclaimed Revia in my best Redneck Boston Accent Mr. Tony will love this. I thought it is from the country club. A Revere Golf Club which is not in Massachusetts by the way when I got home after the days rough four and a half hour shift I went to my Google machine to look up what I was.

The area is spectacular and have the golf ball and I'm grateful and of course on parrot gets exactly what he wants. Other things. Michael Big box came for you today. What's that all opened up? Oh you haven't dealing with a tire situation. Mike Car Michael on my car that I gave to my son I gave him the car. It's your car. It's broken the tires hissing car. Well the thing because you drive the rims into every single curb. So they're like daggers. Oh so you'd have serrated complaining about the free car you have Cadillac Cadillac's borrowing paying four along the way. Yes yes paying for putting gas and paying for the tire. He's paying for it along the way. What did you get out of the way? It looks like a board game. This could be You know the Baby Shark Doc Melody Pad Buzi the Hammer. I think both boys from Burton sexton Kansas City as a small token of my appreciation asssociation enclosed as something for Buzi and or the hammered. This'll be an and I have a nine month old son. We have the Korean version of this and he loves using it. So hopefully your boys will annoy you. I'm mean enjoyed with you. Get ready for this you baby shark. which immediately in Washington? DC conjures up the baseball team. The nationals the lead story on sports today are in sports. Today is Anthony. Random goes west He leaves the nats. He signs for seven years in two hundred forty five million dollars with the angels. That is thirty five million dollars. A yeah the same that Stephen Strasburg got from this particular team than the nationals. And let me say my first reaction is this. You did not stay in the National League. Can you did not stay in the area. God bless you you know you WANNA go Anthony Rendering you wanna play with Mike Trout. You WanNa enjoy southern California you on the East Coast you the west coast. That's fine. The angels need pitching the angels. have their last year as a team was five point one two. That's it's worse than the nationals their starters and that's what they need that's why they wanted Garrett Cole the era their starters was five point six four that was twenty any ninth of thirty teams and they were thirtieth of thirty teams in the lowest amount of innings pitched by their starters. So you can assemble. Anthony Brendan and you can put them with my trout and you can put them and you may be forgotten this which Shohei Otani you can do all those things and our pool. Yeah well I mean but he the team Marcus of Albert loopholes. But YOU'RE GONNA have to get pitching. So let's let's sort of look at this from from the overview now and this says not Bryce Harper go to Philadelphia. I don't think anybody Anthony. Ren Doan begrudges Anthony. Rendong had in his contract year a spectacular tackler year. He was clutch as anybody in baseball. Everybody was thrilled when Anthony Ran. Don't came up and he's a really good fielder he's right right there with Nolan Aeronautical as third. Beijing's right there. You waited a long time to go where you WanNa go and get what you want to get and if this is it fine. The nats assemble their team differently in the last two years the NAT spent a lot of money on starting pitchers Patrick Corbin. They spent a lot of money on not as much as they spend on. Max Scherzer but in the same general area they went and got a starting pitcher. The re signed starting pitcher in Stephen Strasburg their position the way they formulated team. And it's hard to argue now. The way they formulate a team is give us starting pitching if we get to the playoffs and we have starting pitching we can win. They had not accomplished that before but they accomplished it this year and they won the world series. The problem they've got I mean I actually do think they have a problem in perception because two years in ro their biggest hitter their biggest hitter has left. I do think that's a problem. But if you look at it. Bryce Harper when you have one Soto Invicta Robe lace and Adam Adam Eaton. Bryce Harper was not particular. I'm not going to be a fool here. Because he's price great player. He was not particularly missed. They were able to survive. And even thrive without route him. The difference now and then we open this up to people sitting here the difference now is they have one infielder one trae turner owner. They have part time people at Second. They have part time people at first and ain't got nothing at the moment at thirty. So maybe they get Donaldson Josh Donaldson. Maybe they get Kris. Bryant maybe Carter key boom placed. I I like. I don't know but they were. They were filled old in the outfield. They got nothing in the infield now and they gotta do something go Not even slightly angry Anthony Reimburse things I I completely agree with you on wishing anthony random. The best couldn't have gone further away literally figured always further place. The Nets had offered rundown. I believe seven years. Two hundred ten million dollars is that correct. Yeah so Thirty five million dollars over seven hundred significant cricket money. No no I well you know what about the home town discount. no-one begrudges him. That as far as I mean I can't offer any any the hot. Take to disagree with what you said. bryce Harper while an excellent player wasn't leaving the covered bear. That's took you now. Have a a a huge hole in the infield that needs to be filled and it seems very interesting to me. How just sort of dismissively a the reporting is oh? Well they'll just go get donaldson of Ryan. I mean those guys aren't gonNA come cheap necessarily And I'm very interested to see what the team well Kris. Bryant may have two years left on his contract or may have one depending on arbitration. That's right I don't know but will come with a PRI- I mean as a train about is got I know that the agents but key boom is he. Boom is the big piece of the the what I have seen of the Chris. Branco which I I mean. I guess the theory is they. They're not going to pay Bryant when he becomes the cubs not pay him so get something for him but it is not what I would expect her. I maybe Chris I- overrated Kris Bryant when I mean he's a seems like a great credentials that Bryce Harper had right he's an MVP. Hey come on Played on a world series champion. We nuts I mean. He's not he's not some guy so that he doesn't credentials. Harper has way more credentials. The and and what's I mean unless your goal is to make a one or two year run with him. I mean you trade for Bryant. You'RE GONNA tear it up and sign 'em right. I mean back to the larger view of how the nats are constructed to win now which is through starting pitching and has been in this iteration of the team when you're able to draft Strasbourg. And then you make the monster deal for Scherzer and then what happens with Corbin that's to maximize winning. Now you can still fill in some pieces around. It's going to be incredibly difficult to fill it whole at third but I have to respect act with the angels are doing which is hearing the criticism about wasting trump best player out of a generation ever gets to the plan. You have to take a look at that division and you take a look at what Houston has done but then you also take a look at how Oakland has had the success of getting in and what the nats have shown and what really the giants have shown and now the two team wildcard is. If you get in you can make noise and obviously that that definitely needs starting pitching but starting pitching something that you can start to assemble in in season so maybe the addition of Ren dawn wakes up who holds it resonates with trout and all of a sudden your inner division racing. You can start to make some of those moves. I very much appreciate that. This comes before the Christmas holiday. This is something that let's all teams move on. It's not dragging on and it's not Bryce Harper the moves as you guys say moves to the best place and unlike the nets. If you don't necessarily want to play for seven years as a position third base player you you can age in place in the American though if if if you're an angel fan two weeks ago if you want not that that it's a zero sum game necessarily but if you want Garrett Colour you on Anthony Rondonia you gotTA team giving up five point one a game and it seems like well. I didn't plan to fix it as okay. Well let's score five points well but I think once I don't wizards it's not an accident. That when they lose out on Garrett Cole they originally Cohen always get random because I mean Garrett Cole season before the season will start before the season started with coal the assumption was the angels. Because he's from there Newport beach so in went ucla. And and so I think losing on him. You've got him do something within twenty four for your fan base and for trump did thing I'd say is how important context is for me. At least when we lost Bryce last year I I and then went on to win the world series as it is now. I think you have to give Rizzo in the learners. Some leeway in terms of saying we are are making the best decision for the team. We Love Rendong. We wish he stayed. But we had that we went through this whole rigmarole with Bryce and look how that turned turned out. I'm not talking necessarily about braces season but the the realities of the marketplace now are such that same reason. The Red Sox aren't going to be able to keep Mukhi bets. Same reason they aren't GonNa McKee Keep Kris Bryant. It's very you. It's not a both end at the cost of winter or right. It's an either or you see this football all the time you have to reward the the people who helped you win and that the price of that is you can't sign enough people to get on on the field to protect the people just paid a lot of and worth pointing Out while the contracts are the same top line according to Mark Fine San of MLB dotcoms reporting no deferred money the random. DNC's what he wanted right right and a bunch already Merano. That's what I'm that's what the national student there. There's so much money in the Sherzer deal to all right in other nats news by the way in sort of nats alumni news. Tanner roark who I liked. GOES TO TORONTO FOR TWO YEARS and Blake training who I it could not stand great stuff star. Dr Dot Com. You're trying you'll want to have them executed at some point it so no I mean. Don't think again belt yesterday. Signed Strasbourg and you had mark mark. Lerner saying we're not sending both of them just in the same way. He's he's when he talked listened because remember he said with Harper last year. Like this is kind of what we've we put we put but the offer for that. We put forward bryce leaves. He said and there wasn't follow up five days ago. You know I mean like we can't sign the bowl. They signed Strasbourg. You kind of felt like they signed Strasbourg because the way they as Michelson yeah the way they look at a baseball team the most important thing for them is starting pitching and it's a hard. It's very hard to argue with that. Yes 'cause if you are a playoff team look at the numbers. Strasbourg has put up in playoff appearances. They are spectacular. They are spectacular.

Your first game involves the first game last week as well Chicago. This is not the Thursday night game. Chicago is at Green Mbaye. Chicago was plus four and a half at Green Bay. Green Bay beat the Redskins last week. I wouldn't say was convincing but it was enough that it didn't really matter to green. Ah If you like Chicago in Green Bay you get four and a half a county not to blow smoke like you called the Green Bay Redskin game exactly correctly. Thank so you said they don't blow anybody toy with them and that was exactly how that game went. It basically scored two quick touchdowns today. What are we doing? That's right. They at that point became a cat playing with a mouse. Yeah I love I have to say I love Tony I Love I love your sports book because if I could actually get Chicago at four and a half right now I'd be all over this It's already been down to three. Oh Okay AH getting for the four and a half that Nigel you taking it. I think the bears in the four and a half this is this. Is You know. Green Bay may win by field goal. But Chicago's hot based on all right. Houston is getting three at Tennessee three weeks ago. Four weeks ago five weeks ago Houston than would be giving points at Tennessee because Houston was clearly the better team then. Tennessee switched away from Marcus. Mariota to Ryan Tannehill and everybody already including me said what are you doing. Tannahill is six and one they've got derrick. Henry they look like a playoff team right now. Houston has been good into Shawn Watson and his quite good. The Tennessee looks like a playoff team. Which is why Houston is getting three? We got either way after that epic week of Football Games last week where we had just incredible matchups. This is kind of a pooh-poohed flatter probably the best game of the week. It's good one. Houston Tennessee is probably the most not by one of the two or three most meaningful. But it certainly I. You know this is hard. I think Tennessee's the better team and I think Houston has the better a player I'll go with the hot hand in Tennessee To cover this cover this three but I think this is going to be. This could be a great good. I agree with you. This one might be the best game of the weekend. Denver is at Kansas City. And the record makes this a ten and a half point game. I'm Denver getting ten and a half but drew lock has now played from minute in a have and looks like John Elway. I enjoy it. You Know God only knows how long it lasts just because Daniel Jones looked at good at the beginning of the season but drew lock has changed the perception of cans of Denver there at Kansas City. Kansas City coming out of of obviously a big win Perhaps a letdown. I don't really know you're going to take ten and a half or you like chiefs at home. So I like the chiefs at home and b. e this is locks for starting the road right. Yes Tibet on a quarterback. I rode however ten and a half right that that hook feels like a very dangerous book Give Me Denver and that half point Hook. GimMe Gimme that ten and a half. I hi I'M A. I'm I'd rather have that than lay the point. That ain't easy. Here's a game that I think is pretty tough and I'm I am surprised. I am surprised that the spread in this game buffalo is a good team. I know that they lost at home to Baltimore but they were sure they had the ball for the tying score in the last couple of minutes and just couldn't get it in the end zone. They're getting to at Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh had a great run seven within one run adding Pittsburgh's really good and tremendously surprising but buffalo getting too. I'm a bit surprised at that. How `bout you Yeah listen to this step by the way so the under in the last five years of the NFL because my degenerate gambling newsletter. That I get in the last five years. NFL There's only been three games. Where the over under was priced at thirty six and a half points or less two of them have been by the Buffalo Games dish career? Yeah Buffalo's got under they. Don't just don't score. No that's why Pittsburgh I it's favorite here I'm taking Emma steelers because Because they're at home. That's the only reason I'm doing it but I'll tell you what you really want about here. Is You WANNA bet together. Yeah Yeah this game is going to be you know. Fourteen to ten. Pittsburgh doesn't score either thirteen Pittsburgh starting a guy who's there on Daca caller I learned. Barry is there. We're starting running back. They had nothing. Okay here. Here's a game. That's pretty interesting. Only because the Los Angeles Rams need to win out and Dallas has to find a way to win one game I guess if they beat Philadelphia. I guess that's really all they have to do. The RAMS ARE MINUS ONE AT DALLAS. The Rams M.'s. Put two games together in a row. That were quite good. Dallas stinks. I mean they're just they're no good right now. There's just no good and the rams are only giving one what would you do. Is there a number that the rams win by and this gain were Garret does get fired the no no not because then there's no number number right. It's two games left after this. What is the point? No who who if there was somebody out there that Jerry Jones could have plugged in that he liked heat of don on it. What do we think Lincoln Riley Lincoln Riley or or Urban Meyer? Sure I mean you go after him. Urban Meyer I think we have to I but I don't know this is what I always say. There's a special table that includes only like a handful of people. Pete Carroll Jimmy Johnson right even very switzer get the cable the College Basketball National Title. Yeah you know you would think. Urban Meyer has the ego to say you know what. It's the only way I can catch nick. Sabin Urban Meyer would take the job. The question chuck is would jerry offer the job to somebody where he knows he would have to not be the top dog right. So Yeah Yeah it would be fun to watch the class that he goes Bottom line around. I think this is. This is This is one of those that that one points going to look. Oh okay the Minnesota Vikings go on the road. They go to Los Angeles chargers who finally had a big and decisive win. Last tweak. They don't really have a home field advantage in that soccer stadium wherever that is the best team in the in the league. Okay and they're gonNA play team. It's Minnesota's a playoff team right now. But the rams can catch them. This game wouldn't have anything to do with it. The chargers not the charges largest either the packers or the bears have to beat them for reasons of tiebreaking. But if you like Minnesota you give two and a half on the road. Classic Kirk cousins. Uh Yeah place to bet on US right here laying team with a losing records. GimMe Minnesota Gimme Gimme that defense traveling on the road and they have they. Can't they have to keep up with Chicago. They can't afford to lose. I'd and the last game we give you. We give you the Redskins game when they play Philadelphia's at the Redskins the measure measure of how terrible Philadelphia has been lately. Is there a four and a half point favorite. Th this is. This should be ten if Philadelphia would alpha was what you think they are but what they actually are is Dallas a team that stinks they stink. They needed to go to overtime at home. To beat the giants who are terrible beyond words Philadelphia minus four and a half. I don't know I still think that's up to the line. I know we all like we've nothing in the NFC at the age. But my God. I mean Doug Peterson versus Bill Callahan. That it's selfish man. I'm sorry. Give me the eagles here You know and and the redskins covering two weeks in a row. That's a lot to ask. I think that'd be three in a row actually three covering rela all well. That's like it's like the you know. One game he didn't give me Bella check. It's like you gotta bet on him. This week he doesn't he doesn't cover arena. Rub You know okay. Well Nigel Games and God only knows why. Pick some the games he picks you I'm okay with Renzo. I if all the places that rundown win the angels is fine with me again having said this already you leave. No no no no no no. You're not at the beginning of the show. It's okay if you leave the team and you go as far away as you can physically and you go to another League Godspeed Godspeed John Glenn if you're Bryce Ice Harper and you go up the road no no no no no no no no you spend three months hemming at high right now. So good luck to you anthony. Grondona right totally agree totally great guy. He went exactly he gets to be trout's wing man my God yeah. The numbers ran. Don't put up. Yeah either in front or behind got a pitch to one of them you can't you can't put them both on so believable and we got Chris what are you like Kris Bryant Donaldson or detail. I would rather have Brian. Because I think he's younger. And better than had a great year Donaldson. It's not a great year list. I would take Chris Bryant if you get an advocate Brian. Are you in Wilpon GONNA speak. We'll bond would be infuriated beyond it makes me so happy all the reason why we need to make this happen because he. He's me UNMERCIFULLY. That harper would go to Chicago. And they'll be heartbreaking as it turned out is not heartbreaking it all wherever you 'cause they won the world series anyway. Enjoy the impeachment. It seems like such fun. Maybe I'm the only one WANNA thinks it's bad for the country and everyone else thinks it's just fun Oh dreadful the the tk salute to you brother talk to you. Chuck Todd of meet the press boys and girls and if we just gave you. Chuck Todd as you can see. That would be far and away enough but we give you a monkey who who those zoo ready swaying from the baw. uh-huh regio likes after Chuck. Todd Ma and the cause thank you in other the words through to in his case solid Balu so we do that in honor of Frank Sinatra. Yes who we will Talked talked talked to who we will spotlight on Guy Radio. That would be a big store. Suite Francis Albert Sinatra tentatively booked would have been how old two hundred and four so there we go so by the way just a year older than Kirk Douglas. Who is still signing? Yes he is all right so what happened Nigel. By the way before we get to Reginald's edged picks Want to say thanks to Kelsen. Who Does that grace? Spread Nacho. Rangel Frank Reginald so. I went down to the zoo and it was fascinating. He wasn't in his cage does he really is when I go down there. These days he was at the baseball field that they have up there at the National Zoo baseball field working taking ground balls at thirty. Who is helping him Brooks Robinson and Michael Jack Schmitt so looks like might be an interesting developments over the next day and by the way Scott? Boris his brother Manfred. was there as well so clearly. This is high level. The first game we gave him was Green Bay at home giving four and a half to the Chicago says and Reginald should be very very interesting video of him and I think he's done this event several times but this is the Paris to Dakar Rally do who was driving with them. Aaron Rodgers and Danika Patrick. It's a clearly. He has got strong ties Green Bay area and he will take the packers and lay. The Ford Chuck Liked Chuck. Like the four and a half so much you know because he said it had already been back down to three. I think the packers Kaminsky only be past if a hostage prologue. Trubisky will not be good for very long but yeah we'll see So the next game we gave him was a buffalo at Pittsburgh getting to And this was another fun it was it was. It was like a home movie of him doing that. Polar Bear Arctic plunge in. I'm not sure what river they have up in buffalo the Niagara River okay. It was an must've been the Niagara River. That's the thing that leads into Niagara Falls. Yes I've heard of that lowly MARV levy was with them. Darryl talley and fills mom Very make sense has been so got Norwood in the background. So Ah yes. We'll take buffalo with the two points and of course the last game and gave him with the Redskins at home getting four and a half feels like it should be a lot more. Four hundred does and having watched the Redskins I understand. They have been fairly close in terms of the spread on a few games. Well it's a home game though that hometown down and wannabe marooning yellow green and white or black. Ruining your way. It's going to be a lousy day. Always GonNA raise. Yeah a little bit of wintry mix. Well will he take the Redskins Willie tank. The Eagles turns out. He took a trek up. Mount Kilimanjaro. Along with with Joe Jacobi Richard Pettibone and Dexter Manley. Who ought to know about this four and a half dozen see it just doesn't if the eagles terrible by the way terrible they are very surprising as I go on Seatgeek here you know? We can keep an eye on the on the price ace of redskins tickets. It's it's gotTa be under ten bucks that's gotTa be getting two dollars and fifty cents and you're pretty pretty close to eagles country home game. Oh griot nine bucks. Couldn't get in the building because we really wanted fifty online. I I take that back. You're getting trash trash seats for thirty five. That is almost tha. That's nine times what it's cost for some of the Lesser Games. So I it. It's going to be an eagle. Takeover got a reputation uphold by the way thirty five dollars. Thirty five dollars. You get twenty people into a wizards game midweek get a sweet. Yeah Yeah you gotta get you gotTa flag a T shirt candy. Whatever coal some play get to make the players Yeah let's get Outta here.

Twenty two and fourteen overall Gano College Games to pick this week army navy which is yes. Yes yes. Ask My favorite game of the year. I forgot about that. You are you if people are betting with if they're not happening with you they're stupid because you're winning. I I have to thank all the people in the UNIVAC Computer Algorithm guys you know the gals down in in the computer proprietary numbers as you know what guys again Army Shit Armageddon. Ten and a half and I I it navy's Good I. I know that even as as you guys know. I've been riding on me for a long time and I hope guys who they play this game. That's the rest of their lives in this beat back in points. It is so stirring when they walk in and you know. They're wearing the full dress uniform. You've been to that. Tony Been in once Hopefully stirring Ashdown Feinstein more exciting nominated gave him a Lehigh Bucknell basketball. I think he would always say Army Navy. I think he would although he made a lot of money right in about the Patriot league as well. Is that one game this week no. NFL about come coming back in the pros pretty heavy I got I got some heavy opinions coming into this south. I think I'm GONNA be heavy on the Minnesota Vikings but not this week. You're saying next week. Actually okay. I think they're going to beat the SNOT Green Bay with a climate. So so you are. You are a believer then in cousins even even though cousins record against winning teams is hideous insidious. I'd be out here. I think I think Minnesota's okay like Ed Ocean on. It's ten in one against COP. Canteen Tigers go tigers. Joe I'll ask you a question. Joe Bar just completed. The greatest season any players had history college football. I would have told you because because of the national championship I would have told you that Cam. Newton had the greatest season I had ever ever seen if borough leading into the playoffs so far appears to have be having the greatest season that I remember. And you're old enough to remember number this too since OJ Simpson and OJ Simpson here. He won the heisman. Don't you think what would happen would Bara. Who's done the competition Titian? He's done it again. I mean when he it mean Georgia is an old world defense. I mean I'll world. He killed them even on the field. How he killed totally picked him up on? Yeah he plays he does. He played five teams. That win a top ten when item. That hasn't been done since. Nineteen thirty six no and it and it's a complete change in what you expect from. Lsu I mean they always said you know. We finally have a quarterback and they didn't and now they do they do. He's going to win the Heisman iceman. He's GonNa win it. He'll probably get the highest percentage of heisman votes. You won't be unanimous but he'll probably get the highest percentage ever which is now ninety one point four. He'll probably get that torch the best season in but if he got. Don't you think he has to win. You Know Oh how much a man to Lsu football. I didn't even accept it till midway in an game watching the game as we good. They were very good. We have very very high state and Clemson are just as good. I mean. Don't get me wrong about that. And I'll cocky about the thing but man we're good man. He's a good boroughs. Dang James. We'll talk to you next week. All all right man good deal. It's a video game numbers. We have to of course bleep. Everybody was amazing. But we heard every word easily have been most career country. Alabama's Alad Army is. Yes we will start off with the President's cup over in Australia now. A great start to team. USA Essay worst possible outcome for day one. That's not good. We'll go to a Gulf correspondent. Michael Kornheiser frothy details from Melbourne. Yes Mike Twenty interrupt by saying Michael Remember have notes. Coll- remembers to tell me about the president's Cup last evening. I I had forgotten about it when I watched until I fell asleep. Tiger bigger and Justin Thomas were up by three and then two and then three again. The can't lay and shaw flay were even and and Dj and Gary Woodland Digest Two bombers. They stunt the join out. They were down read and WHO's replaying with Webb Simpson. They were down and fee now in and D Shambo. They were down. They were all down. So this You actually have some interesting storylines wor Ernie els is relying on analytics to create these pairings and actually I think tigers relying much more on. Just the buddy buddy conversations. Who Do you play well with? What do I WANNA see out out of you and I actually want to look at that last pairing with woodland and Dustin Johnson dozen? Johnson's WHO's coming off of a recent Nassar Audrey. He has not played. Neither one of these players can put it all. You put them in the anchor match on a golf course that is built around difficult. Greens if you're watching this on. TV This looks a lot like Augusta. National not surprising because you have the same architect and the same design philosophy also not surprising as to why you see certain players particularly captain's picks by Ernie els like Adam headwind headwind who go out and take over a match so I was a little disappointed. I think if you actually take a look at the way the Americans are lining up for day to. It's a a we have to get this thing right at right now. So this is a thirty point total match. You have twelve available points on the final day which is singles which plays into the hands of the the American players a much deeper team. But it's these early fourball foursome matches. Were Ernie els is trying to swing this in his favor. He definitely did then day one. They need to at least go three into today to try and get this closer going into eight point. Are you going to be critical down tiger. Do you think Tiger made a mistake so oh I think he made a mistake. In that one pairing I did not like to see him leaving cooter and Rickie Fowler to the best putters on the board. Now you might say in four-ball young guys who are going to go out and make a lot of birdies. Unfortunately this is. This is a golf course where you're not going to overpowered which is what. Dj In woodland are going to do number. Eleven is Z.. Perfect example it's a risk reward short par for everyone got on everyone's going for DJ got on. And what did he do. He had a meaningful three and a half footers to win the barely. He touched the right edge. Conversely Tiger misses any bad spot and he gets the advantage over walking Neiman a younger guy. 'cause he's done his homework and knows how to play to this. The sort of back left shelf these these Greens run away in all directions geyser hitting 20-footers eight ten feet by and so that's why you just look at those two particular particular guys in Fowler. WHO's not played very well this fall and he just say I would have liked to see one of those guys out there? Some of this comes down to the discussion of Patrick riches. You have to get them out early to try and quiet quite the crowd to try and get him in rhythm. I actually think he played well enough. I think the pairing with Webb Simpson worked. And I think that four spot was right but does that affect the other guys around him mess to sort of looking at him looking at where the sort of rhythm of the day's going so one question three of the matches that the United States lost they lost one down. That one down that to me. Always sort of sugges- where's the guts. You know if you lose by one if you get beat four and three you got beat but to lose by one. I think I think that has to do with your insides you I think for this course it. It has more to do with the actual design. If you listened to golf channel fuel economy might say you have to get out to an early start you've the scoreboard. Holes are in the first six at any any of a lot of very difficult par fours and par-threes where it's hard to get inside twenty feet. He saw one par. Three hundred ninety five yards hitting nine iron letting the ball run forty yards yards to the pin. You're seeing great shots that are landing twenty five feet away. You're not going to even with two chances at it. You'RE NOT GONNA make a lot of Birdie putts on those Greens outside at twenty feet and I think that's what the international team understood as to getting off to that fast start and I think a lot of it comes down to not just the preparation of the players. The captains of Geoff Ogilvy who is Australian. Alan lives down. The street knows this better than anyone. Ernie els not the playing-captain like tiger but has had a ton of professional success. Here on this course and was hands is on the guy's telling them how to put these pins. Look that's good. What else Louis use tight? Thank you for that Chris. Yeah we'll go back to baseball. Mr Tony some adjustment for your Washington nationals. Yeah so they took the third base coach Bob Henley moving from third to first base. How how else can you read that other than you send too many wrong home? Yeah I didn't know. His name was Bobby Stanley. She's we'll go. I I mean Davis says this is not a demotion but it feels like a demotion if you go from third base too I yeah what do you do at vogue are went where when benched bench. So car went from first base from the bench onto third. Yes I mean. The first base coach mostly seems to hear that the guys take battle Eh. Yeah what do you want to eat. So there you go We go to college football. Mr Tony couple of hirings this looks like Fau is GonNa get Willie. TAGGART constantly. Boston cleaned up Florida state. Plus they paid them off in the middle of the year said police just lease. Oh He's taking the place a lane kiffin. who was you know had had a scandal career Kiffin and is now at Mississippi and go well at FAU DID COLORADO STATE HIRES Steve Steve Adagio? And I I don't understand what he was. Just forty four and forty four at BC since when is BC Alabama. The Guy. I don't I disagree with fire and him. Yeah that seems to be straight. Maybe if luke ever gets back to America we can slow it Luke. INSTAGRAM update. I sent this to Michael Last night. Incredible Picture Luke Floating in the Dead Sea m thumbs double thumbs CBS up. Of course caption floaty just incredible stuff if you would think it was a parody account. But it's not. He's he's currently in.

But we laugh at Luke a lot of the photos he shares are most of them are beautiful kid because we care we love luke the so good Kawhi Leonard went home last night by home. I mean to Toronto behind you got around good for him. Yeah Nice win over the you. Can't you can't be angry if you're Toronto was a rental for one year and everybody knew it and got a standing ovation. They weren't angry orderly. Yeah they were. They reacted the right way. John what free. She ate what he did Canada and let him go if he wants to let them go home. Problem is great Similarly to different thing when he left he went as far away as you can. The laugh is taunting And this blow harden seems like he can play a little bit the basketball harden. Here's what I did it under Simeon. They beat the cavaliers at one point the Cavaliers scored twenty four straight points. I don't know how in the NBA that happens. I don't know how the other teen gene doesn't hit one Basler's worth of score. It's so amazing. Twenty four straight points in the this is not college these these guys these guys do them anywhere and lose. Yeah just very odd very odd but by the way the Washington Post has a big story on Davis Burton's and what a great the Latvian laser. Yo Yeah what do you have the thirty two the other shoot on a seven and sixteen team. What else It's Tony the SAG bag. Nominations have come out. We will bypass television. But we'll go straight to the movies go. What are the best movies? Five best movies Let's see how they do this or outstanding. They call cul de sac performance by cast and motion.

Here comes Santa Claus also and when I listened to it I kept inserting the word. Jack Jack Godfrey Frazier you. Stick around Jack. You might know so. I listened to the seriously Sinatra a station on the way home from work. Oh right not in the morning. No when I'm done drive home and I just listened to four or five songs makes me very happy. It's not all Sinatra but it's not to type summer wind a nineteen sixty five song originally released. I don't know if you knew this in Germany as event. No I didn't Yeah No. That's everybody's done this song written by Charles Aznavour. Did this song everybody. Yes I recruited by Wayne Newton. Everybody's someone yeah written by Hans Meyer and German language lyrics by Hans Bradtke broadcast. Yeah so yeah but you. You can't go wrong with a friend on now now. Well my ways terrible. It's up and spit it out. Shut up but Most of his gripes Blue Eyes Jeff module US Jeff. You've had a rough week. Jeff was two and four last week is thirty six thirty three and one so if you are devoted to Jeff Ma you have made money Jeff Monson Rufus peabody have the podcast beat the bet the process bet the process. And what do you have for us now. That was a tough week last week for you. College Games hurt you. If I'm not mistaken yeah I mean well I was wanted to and in both of them. yeah it was. It was a tough week. I mean sometimes you know. Oklahoma was in a situation where they you know. We're we're well on the way covering and yes out of third string quarterback back in there see. No yeah wow great philosopher. Wow Zeno comes. In his first two passes for one hundred eighty yards and a touchdown. Wow yes salaam. Yeah and it was like you know they they they let that happen and and so there's nothing you can say beyond that but I felt pretty good about that position that I was in In the NFL. Like yeah. There was some bad bets there so it it happens I would he got. We're GONNA go with the chargers there's plus the two and a half over Minnesota This is a game where people are GonNa say oh. The chargers are eliminated. What do they have to play for But the reality is you know. They've they've probably know pretty well that they're not gonNA make the playoffs this year for a lot of the year and they certainly last week gave great efforts so would think that they will come in and play Hard that that narrative is often overrated. And that's why you get so much value your With the chargers getting two and a half points at home okay. We're GONNA go with the bears over Green Bay One of the things that I There plus five over Green Bay one of the things that I feel very strongly about. Is that Green Bay is very overrated. Team the the numbers the underlying. Metrics do not match with the record and many much of that is because Green Bay has just had a very good record in these close. Those Games I think the bears are going to play. Well the rest of the year probably overperform what they have done so far this year. So I like the bears so so you you had You picked against Green Bay last week. You pick the redskins last week when comfortable. Yeah you won comfortably okay. All right what else. The redskins even had a chance to win that game. Yes I mean who would have some kid And then I'M GONNA take Houston Plus Three over Tennessee Tennessee. Honesty is obviously everyone's darling right now. The Panel Hill Derrick. Henry Combo is certainly winning people. A lot of fantasy games but The reality is you know they're pretty average team in Houston. I think is is still a better team than they are Despite what happened last week was Houston obviously laying it laying eggs. I mean you've eat the Patriots and then the next week you follow up with that. It's pretty embarrassing. So I think they come back here and Win this game over satiety. Okay and then I'm GonNa go with one college game. There's obviously only one we get so many. Take Tony Well. Carville was on earlier and took army. I'M GONNA guess you're GonNa Take Navy now. I'm arm and a half. There's obviously a a little bit uncertainty about Kelvin Hopkins The the quarterback for army but You know hoping obviously he plays and even if he doesn't play how much of a difference will that make probably not you know like Rufus and I went over this game on our podcast and Rufus. His numbers have this lined up as navy should only be favored by four points. So that's a that's a big difference From what we're seeing here and you know these teams certainly a lot of the over under his game is only forty which half points and a game where the over under his only two lots too much on a point. Yeah it's way too much point so I mean you always take something like that. That is the one game. That's the one game this week. All right I will. We want you to win. I know I wanNA win two Komo. That's winning is is the whole. Thank you Jeff Jeff Ma. You wonder and it's bet the process Jeff Ma and Rufus peabody. There's jeff ever get bored of winning winning. I'm sick of winning winning. They'RE GONNA come to Jeff One day and they're going to say I got fleas. Were winning too much. That's one of my favorite in turn. Brisk disavow I want to I want to tell the story of yesterday and not not getting a ticket when I went to physical therapy because I had a place to park. That's a win okay. So the guy who runs the Westin Hotel tell on twenty four hundred m which they call the West in Georgetown. That's close to enough Kotecki gets done. Yeah Ross Davis is a listener and he had offered to let me park in the little courtyard area out. It's my physical. Therapist is the twenty-fifth and M.'s. So it's a block away beautiful block away. I didn't avail myself of it last week at that workout. Thirty dollar ticket outrage. I've got a third of a meter by the way the broken. It didn't work good. He said he said I won't give you a ticket. But he said you know the plausible deniability by give you tick anyway so I didn't even have to call. Ross Davis Ross Davis yesterday or the day before the day before the evening before said. I'm expecting you. We're GONNA make sure that this works my my guy out front. Is Ben Benham media in your car. I'll be there to say hi as well. What time do you think you might get here? I said well my points for eleven forty five and I'm one of those people who's observe their nine five one coughlin time depends on how long Kevin I said I'm going to be. I'm GONNA be there. Maybe between Levin Twenty Eleven thirty somewhere around there eleven thirty I pulled up made a left hand. Turn in Tank you for that I was. I was just going to turn to turn left or right to get in the left turn anticipated. The question made a left hand. Turn and get in but pull my car in and then came out and then Ross came out. This was great. That's parked my car when I got back. My car was sitting outside and I took the keys. I gave the guy a hundred. No hundred The guy give him life advice so simply guy who handed me my hat. You know total. was there a gloss with the chocolate on the dashboard. For you now know I was thrilled. That's the best best real life changing. It's make make the whole rest of your day. Hey better and Ross said to me. It's little's helping bigs that's fantastic. I just thought that was great. This is like so that's available for all of us on the program. What's that number again? A and this is low. I'm looking for a wrong. This is the Third Georgetown when people sin. I don't care what don't care when descend don't send me anything. I mean less sending no money let us know not unless you address them all to desolation. No I'm not to send me anything but something like this the the ability to make my life a little bit easy. It's eas- that's the best zero. Maybe Mazza Auto. So everybody should go to that hotel. Just go to that. Yes the West in Georgetown friends crush enemies and get parking maybe amend the motto. You you know speaking of that I did I. I won't take a lot of time on this but I had one of these thoughts today. I don't as you know I don't use social media I don't read read stuff on social media. I don't and this is a calculated decision. Because I know who I am I know I may very thin skinned human human being and if I read things about me that were bad even if they were true I would be infuriated and I would attack somebody so I I don't I just don't do it. I don't look at it. I know there's bad stuff out there because my son tells me you should see this stuff that name it's banned. Ah wrote myself when I was driving in here. Guy Said I'm GonNa go on the air today and I'm GonNa say this I'm GonNa say look if somebody has written something. I'm terrible about me on social media. The people like the show should attack that person Mercilus they should get together in groups and attack that person and then I thought I don't. That's that's so crazy so I'm not. I'm just saying what I was going to say but I'm not actually. I'm not actually saying that but it speaks to the character director floor of me which is just just just. I'm just nasty. I'm a not in no nine vantage. Additionally there's nothing wrong with being I am vengeful. No that's a great show I am. You're not nasty your vengeful. That's that's something that ties us together. God Is Vengeful Testament. Might them more of an old testament than a lot of ways. But I I don't I don't want to encourage the UNCIVIL behavior in social media so I'm not going to think that hip purpose sailed through my system just it was uncontrollable rage for reasons that I don't even you're so smart the staff of social media because I had an episode earlier this week in which someone who will go on name but used to work at CNN as an anchor attacked me in it became it was totally out of context context and wrong like the attack was not based on what I had written but it was a day and a half of. I can't look at my social media because it's people who are just taking taking that tweet not reading what I wrote and just being like. You're actually some of them. Were pretty funny. They were like how how. What is the secret that you get paid and can you tell me it which is just it's it's it's mental time space? That's not worth. Don't WanNa do it. I mean there was no about a month ago ago when when remarks that I had made about placement of stories in a newspaper were misinterpreted and hurled back at me. I should've could've why didn't what you have to realize particularly social media now is that and this is your thing is a good example. People are wilfully a misunderstanding and canoe and take name for it and taking things purposely out of context to fuel the outrage machine. Don't want it two and if you know it would just make it hotter. What I don't WanNa do that well in? And we've also had experience with email Jihad's in the past. Yes we unleash. The hounds so to speak and unleash the hounds. Yes there was that guy. Who was that guy? It's a two word name. The last name is BURP BURP. You remember the I remember. That guy came on telling me that I needed to give I mean just you said you make a lot of money scolded you. Just you need to give money to this. 'cause no I don't just very aggressive don't and we unleash that email it for a long time worked for local local TV station. I think he did yes. I think we should probably stop. Yes good okay.

And I'm sure you could find someone to whom you're late to by marriage would watch it with you. I know this plot. It fails to conform to your stereotypical comedy musing about hallmark Christmas movies but sometimes facts get in the way of a good joke by the way this year. The hallmark channel is introducing the first Hanukkah movies in seven in years with holiday date premiering on December Fifteenth Double Holiday on December. Twenty second in in light of that and I don't make fun of this. There was a terrific story in the outlook look section of the Washington Post last week about those Hanukkah movies and how they are essentially corrupt and how they are saying that the only way you know to enjoy the holiday season season is to do what everybody else does and subscribe to a particular religious ethic. So if you WANNA watch if you WANNA read that it was in the post and was very very good. And I'm I'm not knocking hallmark movies for you. I'm knocking them from me.

The Indicator from Planet Money

When $600 Goes Away

"N. P., R.. Everyone Cardiff and Stacey here this is the indicator from planet money. There has been a lot of sound and fury this week about unemployment benefits. The question of the center of everything has to do with the extra six hundred dollars a week that Congress had added to unemployment benefits as part of the cares act back in March. Those extra benefits expired at the end of July and that. Means, most of the thirty million Americans on unemployment saw their weekly income drop in half economist warned that this could be a huge crisis with people losing their homes and not having enough food to eat the congress had been expected to extend those benefits in some way. But Republicans and Democrats are deadlocked and most legislators have left for their. August. Break over the weekend the White House stepped. In President Trump announced the federal government and states would team up to get people an extra four, hundred dollars a week but states have protested saying they don't have the money to hold up their part of the president's plan. So now the latest is the people will see an extra three, hundred dollars every week on their unemployment, check all coming from the federal government, but there's still a. Lot of confusion over how long people have to wait to get that extra cash. One of those people is Sandy via photo lives in Phoenix Arizona and she worked as a housekeeper at the Sheridan. Santa has two kids a baby her husband works in construction. His work has gone away as well after the break sandy talks to us about what this means for her and for her family. Support for this podcast and the following message come from Barracuda total email protection according to the FBI last year cybercrimes cost three point five, billion dollars get the free e book thirteen email threat types to know about right now at Barracuda dot com slash.

To learn more visit. Microsoft. Dot Com slash teams. Sandy. Thank you for joining us. Thank you. So, Sandy, you were laid off back in March from your job as a housekeeper at the Sheridan at the same time, your husband's construction work has largely dried up. So what does this period been like for you? It was It's just a scary moment because my husband's check wasn't enough for all the bills that we had. I had a lot of bills from when I have my daughter. Still coming in from the hospital. So it was just. It was all just coming. In so fast that I couldn't keep within. did did the digit unemployment benefits? Get you back to what you had been earning before you lost your job? Yes we. Find with my husband checking my check. It wasn't like like Oh. My God. Yes. We're going to have so much money now it was. Enough for us to keep going with the bills that we already had pre covid. And what are like your you and your husband's biggest expenses we're renting a house and that's a thousand dollars a month. Mike Car I'm still paying off my car, which is almost four hundred dollars a month I had a gay Internet service for my son since he started going back to school or his remote learning CH- so it's not like. It's a it's like once that we want it's needs. Win Did you first find out that the six hundred dollars would be going away potentially. I I give most of my news from facebook I shouldn't say that but I get most of my news McVeigh's facebook all get most of our news from expect. So I, I pretty much everybody saying like, Oh, the benefits going to end on July and this mezzo. I was Kinda Scared I. was like Oh my God I hope July doesn't end so fast no. I was just hoping to stretch on forever, but it had come to an end at one point. Yeah. Have you gotten one of the unemployment checks that does not include the six hundred dollars yet? Yeah actually this week we got the the one with. No. Without the six hundred. What was that like? Texan everything it came out with akin to fourteen, two, hundred and fourteen dollars. Yeah. From like eight hundred more than eight hundred. Yeah. That's a lot less yeah and what does that mean for your family we have to choose between. Paying the rent on time or you know paying for groceries the baby she's growing out of CO so fast that I can't keep up with that. You know the bills to be paid on time and then still having to buy clothes for the baby by diapers by whites you know everything that she needs to be. Okay. I. Mean Because, Yeah you've just seen your income drop by like more than seventy percent year exactly, and so you mentioned like this might mean choosing between groceries and rents does that mean that like maybe maybe you won't pay rent this this month. Probably not I'm not sure my husband's like I said, my husband's work has been slowing down a lot. So and usually this is a time where like I would back him up. So now that I don't have that money to be bringing in were, where am I going to get that money from? Yeah I mean one thing that that lawmakers in Washington have said is there talking this through is that they're worried that adding the six hundred dollars a week onto unemployment is stopping people from going back to work Do you think that's true? I know that is so not true I actually want to go back to work I. I've been working since I was seventeen and I've I've never asked for unemployment I've always been all like. While I was working I would save enough to be okay for like two or three months while I look for another job, but it's All that stuff that everything were lazy. We don't want to go back to work because of the six it's not you most of us want to return back to our jaws but my job since it's a hospitality in its travel and everything nobody wants to travel anymore. So how am I supposed to return back to work where it's not open? I mean I actually applied to a couple of other places but they're not calling everybody saying, go get a job like where am I going to go get a job from? No one's hiring. Is, you're looking ahead to the next month or two without that additional money like what is the thing that worries you the most just? Just losing my mind and losing my house losing everything that I worked so hard for I mean. It's Just, thing that I just don't want to. You know especially since you know I worked every day for you know five years at the the current job that I met you know in. It's so hard just. Not to. Not to see myself working anymore you know in. As when I get back to normal is pretty much what I'm trying to say, yeah, he were working seven days a week. Yep. On fixing we would work seven days a week. Wow and sometimes, I would even work more than eight hours a day. We just need a little bit of help for now and you know we'll work our butts off you know. As soon as we have to work because that's all you ever known as we work work work, you know just to get ahead of just to you know be okay with our families be have food on the table have a roof over ahead we're not. We're not lazy. People were hard working people that just need a little bit of help for now. Is Is homelessness like a real worry. That's. That's a lot. Honestly it is. It is a knife. I stayed up nights. Just. Hoping that some miracle come that I don't have to resort to that or you know having to ask someone to let me stay with them for like a little while I get my. I, I've never been that prison to ask for a handout like I said, I've always been the person that working working working in having everything that I need that my kids need. And? I feel so vulnerable like I don't. I hate asking for help but he asked me for hand but you know it's it's something I needed the current moment my kids needed you know and yeah, it's so hard just to even say I. Need It. You know it's It's It's not like me to for handouts picking much China. Say. Sandy thank you for sharing your story. Thank you for having me.

M2 TechCast Episode 196

"You're listening to the PODCAST. visit www dot asp detroit. Dot Com for information. Welcome to 'EM, squared Tech Cat's paw live Internet radio show offering the latest news and interviews with the people driving business, technology and politics in Michigan Now Your Host Matt Roche at Mike Brennan. It's. Running And we're back with another edition of the square tech cast. We are having just a couple of minor technical challenges, but we think we've got a great show for you. Today we have to half hour blocks because we have two people that have more than fourteen minutes for stuff to say so. Mike wanted to introduce our first set of guests here. Aria? Reuven and an Elephant Ari guy just met with the shattuck I go back. Gosh I. Think the last century. Right Larry almost this woman. So. And so Larry is involved with is pronounced. Sadder Jack Right that's. GonNa write. A couple of weeks ago, Larry impregnate. In? told me. What you guys are up doing sadder and they have a device conflict airport screener what he's familiar with those you. Don't have any weapons or metal or whatever? Your case is, it looks for different Body functions, temperatures things like that respiration and doesn't touched you within. Within five seconds. They can tell if you are likely to have the COVID nineteen drivers that I get that right. Yes sir. That's not it it. It can be as low as two seconds if you're just testing for temperature. And if you want to include the multilayer approach, which is recommended by the leading doctors and scientists to screen for up to. Invest Case Ninety nine point nine percent of all people with known symptoms of the Cobra Virus. Then you're going to want to. Have a layer that has temperature. By the way a very accurate way of doing tablets or not, not not. Heaven forbid you don't want to use the thermal gun that you might find in. A store for fifty dollars. Because those can be off by thirty percent on accuracy. If you have a high up very high accuracy way of measuring temperature. Be Plus or minus point a one degrees. which is what we're doing. Plus blood oxidation level plus. Heart rate plus, respiration. Go icing on the. Cake. Include Blood pressure. And in fact if you think about it, that would emulate what you might. Experience when he goes to your doctor during a typical physical checking. Crack! So so, when was the system? Has Symptoms send? System was developed and when was released. Larry I don't WanNa hog this you want. Well, it was actually it was developed. Beginning in January. That's the this iteration. I'll call it. This erased of the product came out the offering anyway. we got together with about medical professionals, doctors, clinicians and scientists. Put up a board together medical board basically review what was needed for Covid to find out what was going on with it, and so on with some best practices, and so on, and we came up with the device, but actually kind of started. Back even before solder when we members of our team, actually working on these scanners that Mike was talking about earlier and leave developers on on the scanners before they came out, so we we started with that technology before the world change in nine eleven. and. We come out with an iteration actually of that. And using it in today's today's world. The next. Threat come out with the respect to covid nineteen is to dial in a little bit more Derek and I invented this device in February in first week of February. We sat down for Lunch and Dallas we were talking about the prior form factor, which is fly sense without we'd add a Very Very. A special way of looking at temperature on a person or a group of people, but we weren't satisfied with lensing that was available from from a ceiling height. And so we put two and two together and. Because Larry said a moment ago about the experience with the airport scanners. In some of the people we've worked with over the over the prior years who have experienced with these airport scanners? We said you know what why don't we populate our electron? Ix into that? We can get a two for one. We can do metal detection, plus we could do health screening detection. For. Why not so? Why not do two things at one and makes a lot easier for the airports for the hospitals and for the theaters, the shopping malls in the schools and the offices so that when people go through the scanner? You want them to have the same simple experience, essentially a go, Nogo, so these are a green light. You'll say I'm good I can go through just like you do with weapons at the airport today. But if you see a red light in this case, it's GonNa be for the symptoms of Kobe nineteen. And there's GonNa be a printout. That's GONNA. Come right off. The device plus the data is going to go to the cloud which is maintained by Microsoft. I want to add that data is completely private. It doesn't show. Your face doesn't show who you are is completely anonymous. Any even now that the has relaxed, allow these privacy laws the last few months. We haven't relaxed those privacy laws, so we're in Heinz highest compliance with hip and every kind of other act from Congress to make sure that people feel feel safe and confident that when they go through here that their privacy won't be invaded, so this device was invented in February this year, and within a week and a half we went into Beta. Ineffectively. We compressed an eighteen month development cycle. where I used to see when I was with General, motors when I was with Texas Instruments in the past we compress those typical eighteen month cycles down into about three and a half months. And have produced this device in. We're shipping. Wednesday our first devices are being shipped to the NYPD Lee receiving the for the first three units. And they're going use lot for people want going into the precinct certain things like that or how they can use. For two reasons for two purposes. Thanks for the question one purposes what you just said. The second is they want to evaluations and WANNA see over thirty day period. Does this meet criteria you know whether it's accuracy whether it's with throughput by the in throughput, we can do up to a thousand people per hour per device. Close each of these devices has as in our battery pack, so if for whatever reason the precinct or wherever they want to install it. Needs to move it somewhere else and doesn't have electric outlet available. They can unplug it completely, and they can operate it for eight hours independently, and it's weatherproof, so it can operate. So it's it's quite agile. But back to the NYPD. would. They really WANNA DO THEY WANNA make sure it works and satisfies the requirements, and then they're gonNA. Order an additional. X. Hundred number of units, so ex could be one hundred, eighty, two, hundred three. We don't know the exact number, so I want to be very clear and go on record that they I have to make sure it meets their criteria. And if it does. Ben. Their team will tell us how many more they wanna buy we have. Yet by the way just mentioned They just didn't decide the curriculum. Throw it in I mean there was like a team. Headed by their chief medical officer that came off spend an afternoon with their equipment, validating that actually the sensors that were on board. We're actually recording properly. Larry was more than him. It was it was a team of five. Yeah, doctors and scientists in purchasing specialists, but you're right. Yeah, so wasn't. Throat and see if it works. By the way that's that's not just for the first I mean we've got. Doesn't scores of customers now? Worldwide that are asking for this and is I. Mean they're there? Why are you can go into that more? NIAMH got more up to date information, but We have we have governments and business entities inside the US outside the US? These are conic entities. Someone would try could mention I. I can mention. They will be putting a device that Rockefeller Center. At Madison Square Garden with some of the NFL teams with some of the NBA teams, some of the MLB teams. I'm not I'm not. Tell you which teams they are all over the country. with some of our government agencies actually government aid. US government agencies not authorized to say who, but you know them, and certainly with governments around the world in Europe. And the Middle East. And just about ten minutes ago, I received We received authorization to submit invoice process the perch sorter floor. A major Japanese entity. it's an old company that believe it or not. In two thousand nineteen had revenues of more than four hundred thirty billion dollars. This is very important. Entity has issued us as purchase order and a few minutes ago. We were given permission to invoice, so we're. We're global now. We have a global team. And it's But I have to tell you that each time someone asks for data. We say you know instead. Why don't you send your smartest people in? Bring their equipment and we'll invite them to our headquarters. and. Let you do the testing yourself because that's GONNA be faster. And that also will be. That will be completely under your control. So. The form factor fellow. What's the form factor? This thing what is physically look? If you if you want I, could show to you on on this call. A chillier screen if you look. Looks like those step into the airport detector looks like that at the go ahead. Are GonNa fix you know what I'm having. Right let me try let me try than having some technical issues here. My end me, try okay. Tell me if you can see this. No Black. You're going to have to show then. Larry I was going to show you if you go to symptom sense dot com. You can see the form factor. So symptoms stands. s Ym Pto M.. S. C. N. N. C.. And you can see the form factor on that side, but essentially if you walked airport, metal detector looks like that. My next question would be I can't tell from the. Website, look heavy existing as an easily transportable. So, if you if you look. If you look at the photo you'll, you'll notice that. We ship it with caster wheels that are swivel in self locking. And it can role in the place. We ship it all over the world in in in. Especially of packing it. It ship sideways. We can ship it assembled or disassembled into its three components. Three major components that. Right side and top. They screw together with unbolt, so it assembles within minutes, and once once you assemble it. You simply plug it in, so we've taken an apple approach to industrial engineering, so if you look at the device, it's pleasing the look at in terms of design and colors. It's easy to use intuitive. It requires minimal training so the same people who are doing security at your building or wherever They'll look at a screen and it'll show. It'll show the symptom result and every time. Someone walks through it. It's the same experience you have is going through an airport screener. One quick I wanNA. Mention here, real quick. I want to stress that this was not developed in a vacuum. If you look at the board of directors, you know that run the organization they're. They're pretty amazing there on our website and take a look at them. We'll get him to now, but one of them coming up is. A Lieutenant General PK Carleton Heats A. Quite an interesting gentlemen. He's former surgeon. General of the United States Air Force. You'll be joining us in just a few minutes here anyway as well, but we had a lot of input to this wasn't just thrown together in a room someplace there there, tremendous input for medical community and from our business side as well in. Looking at some of the folks that run on our board the experience they had is really pretty impressive. Let me give you a background, so I was asked to the board and I I. The first person in my first choice was the ESA general. He and I have had a friendship for about five years, and you know with his with his esteemed role as earning three starring and also being pilot, and also being a medical doctor who is a surgeon general for the Air Force, had you know? Forty thousand employees under his command reported to the chief of staff, and which reported to the pressing United States so his decision authority. His responsibilities were were. Quite humbling he and if you meet him, you'll you'll you'll once you meet him today you'll. You'll see a very well informed humble person. Similarly we brought on cardiologists. Emergency Care Doctors, other kinds of scientists. One example is local. Michigan is I, used to work for general for a number of years, and my former boss is one of their heads. Engineering's Dr Mike Car Ghoulish. So Dr K. is people. Call him go to the site and you see that drown. He's he's engineers. Engineer in all he wants to do is make things in high volume, so whereas Dr. Carlton General Call Job is to make sure we get the science, right. Doc Dr Cargo says role is to make sure we get the production, right. Let's a good segue. That would be my next question is you're getting this many orders? How quickly can you scale your manufacturer? So we're scaling right now to the rate of about a thousand a month. And then we're scaling our next jump will be five thousand a month so right now. We're producing inside around one hundred a months this moment over the next thirty days. We're scaling two thousand and over the next ninety days where scaling five thousand. And, doing it by ourselves where we're outsourcing. You're based in Dallas are near Dowse right? I'm in Dallas. Larry's in Michigan. The company is headquartered in New York. We have offices in the bay area. Athens Greece London England. Luxembourg Monaco Luxembourg. Moscow now Tokyo Japan and That's right this moment. Be Wary of China, so we're not touching. China, he should know yes. Bristle INARA. You. Whether agreements that there's certain whether it's not a or other. NBA There certain Offense acts that although we're not a defense agency were. Obviously already, selling to. Uraba become a second. Yeah you got your. Harry careful. We're very careful to make sure. Our components are sourced from approved suppliers. We know exactly the identity of the five site five yeah five. Companies that are on a forbidden list and we do not source parts from them. I trust you, Please trust me that we pay attention to supply chain all right. Let's bring in general if he's standing by. His is either day. Not well this. Keep going on. Maybe he'll join shortly because we still have a what about thirteen minutes? Saw A. Talk about. I i. know that you told me the price, but I want you to tell the audience the price whether is the price proprietary. Now or now we can, we can leave. The, MS. RPM is thirty five thousand dollars per unit. and. The way we do. This is We want people to afford it, so we have different pricing models, so there's there's a a direct price, and then there's also a rental price, so for example we've been approached by An entity representing the RNC in the DNC. They want our device at all the different rallies that are going on around the country. They asked us very late in the cycle out this past Monday to be in Tulsa yet yesterday. Too Fast for us, we we don't have enough units to supply that, so we we. We had a decline that we're GONNA. Work to be at the others in that situation, it'll be a rental. So that that is of course proprietary to that clients. In other models we have. Come up with a way for the football. League Baseball League and the soccer league, Cricket League and others. To actually. From their own balance sheet pays zero, but through through an insurance company that we were do business with. Bill by the units from us, and they'll provision those to the stadiums. In, they'll recover that fee through a surcharge through a Kobe surcharge. There's different pricing models that we work out. but our P. is thirty five thousand per unit. Right and I know the other thing you talk to me about it I. Don't know yet whether that's been announced a relationship with a ticket vendor. Because obviously, the entertainment industry is completely. Shut Down Right. So, let's say you're you know. God, Forbid Your family goes into. See a an event and say you. You've decided to go to A. Baseball game this summer and I'm not sure that's going to happen because of how that's negotiating with the League, but let's say. It works out in maybe. You Know August I. You finally get to go to a game. And in, let's say you're with the four with five people in four people go through our device and in person doesn't. He gets he gets Tact out at a red. So. Because of our relationship with. We've constructed with the insurance company with ticketing with ticketmaster. Everything else you'll. You'll have the option of getting an automatic refund right then. So. You'll have zero zero cost for your ticket. Or your party can decide you WANNA split up in four of you will go in. The one person will will stay behind. As soon as that decisions made. It'll. The ticket will go back into the pool. The thing is if the person needs to be seen. We have a relationship with a onsite testing company. That can do a fifteen minute. Swab. And if it turns out, they really are with Kobe than they need to be transported to emergency room and taking care of so we have those relationships work out already. Yeah because your devise I believe is what ninety nine percent accurate, but still is Jhansi best case best case, it's ninety nine point nine percent worst-case. It's ninety. Four and he's worth. Four. Point nine worse-case ninety four. But Derek still reported false. Yeah the that compares if you only take temperature, you're GONNA YOU'RE GONNA capture at best according to a to a academic journals, eleven percent of people, so let's say that. Let's say you're a fast food chain and you see thirty across the world. You see thirty million people coming through every day. From all your chains around the world. You can, you can say that across that chain roughly three or so people will will be caught with with symptoms and the other you know twenty seven million will go through in fact, other people. It's pretty scary. So. You. Are just going to say that you know when he was talking about the different types of different types of temperature sensing, you know most people. He kind look at it today. Where most people thinking about you're not even hearing about this kind of an option. You're not hearing about it. Because most world now is thinking about you know the thermal gun just pointed your head or cameras and things of that nature. That's all anybody knows right now. We've come up with something. It's totally different than that includes three other ways of doing. You know that the the Symptoms to pick up the three other vitals at his. But most importantly along with that, it's a different type of temperature says he's thermal imaging that you get from cameras where you get from other types of sensors. A kind of technology that gets so much more close. Than you could possibly get with any of those others by the way those other units you've gotta be. Static temperatures, static air, static humidity and somebody who knows what's going on. She couldn't possibly put it outside to do it effectively appleby I'll tell you the specifics if you use A. Views of thermal gun. You're going to be at best plus or minus point five degrees. Fahrenheit. If you use a thermal camera, you're going to be at best plus or minus four degrees according to literature. If you if you use the symptom, says device. With its patent pending the. Tech. Plus or minus point zero one degrees. Point Zero One. Point zero one versus. Point Four. Whole, rural. Tell. Tell me a little bit about why it's important to also checks. Respiration rates and heart rate and blood oxygen along with a temperature combining those sure, I really wish general. Carleton was online an please I. Want you to ask that question him, but from what I learned of him if I heard him correctly. Actually the most important parameter to measure is the percent oxygen, the blood, because viruses, not just covid nineteen viruses in general. They they they attack the function of the blood of the of the lung, and if it's a long, is not generating enough oxygen, I means the most important organ which is the brain will be malnourished. It'll start to shut down with certain functions the same with the other organs in the body. So when you go to a doctor, you typically have a pulse ox senator slipped onto your index finger. It's using a certain. Attack to to look and you want. Above Ninety, two percent, ninety two percent and above is considered good if Most people are in the range of ninety eight ninety nine percent of everything is going good for their percent oxygen. But if it's below ninety two. There's something systemic going on. We don't know if it's chronic because of a disease like this. But. We do know that something's compromising. And it could be because of your sleep apnea because of asthma, but we know that it's trigger. We know that when someone raises that flag, you're below ninety two percent. You ought to you ought to take something seriously enact so that's number. One criteria number two is therefore not temperature. It's going to be respiration rate. Number three is is heart number four way down the line. Is GonNa be temperature? Let me. Add One thing that are a when you're looking at those four different. There four different vitals. People come in, and we hear above a symptom. individual were many. If not most ray symptomatic, you are not going to get a temperature sense from the spokes of symptomatic. That's kind of like the last thing that happens. What happens prior to that is by the way you won't see it as an individual. If you have it symptom attic, you won't notice it. until the doctor puts on these, he goes any measures for your heart rate a measures for temperature, which wouldn't be any different, but your respiration, and then you look at those things venue. No, so not even you know, or the doctor knows until he starts taking those other other three vitals, so we can those a symptom attic. Folks many of them prior to the point where they're. Frozen? Oh. Okay? Yeah. You're. One left. We have one minute left in this segment. So this is what we let you the shameless plug so that it looks a lot of. That you have to give your website address. Phone number email whatever you wanna use Larry Watch, given the website and phone number, and and I'll state. It will will make it. Somehow affordable to you, no matter who you are whether you're a movie theater A. A school. Any any kind of entity you have. We WanNa work with you. We have this. We started out protecting kids in schools, and we really have a commitment to that. You can find us on symptom stance, DOT, com, it's or solder technologies dot com, but you could symptoms as easy to remember get you. There s y., M., P., T., O., M. S., C., dot, com am I phone number six, hundred, six, three, one, eight, two, seven, seven eight. Three, one, eight, two, seven, seven eight. Okay Larry. are Rueben from Saad Technology. We appreciate you being on the show today and It made me sales yet. At Michigan I gotTA. ASK, that question! Anybody up we. We actually have one corporate customer that you would all know. But I can't release the name I'm sorry. Are you know about it? There's actually more than one. There's one that's doing manufacturing in in your part of the state. and there's there's one that's doing manufacturing and more towards the. Detroit area. and. there may be a third one. And, so we just have to be very careful to protect their S, we asked. Why we also have this large ball on a half, a mile from I lead where we had a ten thousand people on football days so I imagine that they would have some interested in as well as the because we don't know whether there's going to be a football season or not. My friend, my new friend Mike We will do anything possible so that you can watch a football game. You tell us the right person inter- facilities, group. And we'll work with them. Ward Man. The him how make that connection so these new that waste? Time on the segment, appreciate you guys. Being on the show will be right back Matt.

Hey It's Matt Roche. Brennan and you're watching. Another episode of the Square Tech Cast at my Tech News TV. And we are about to let our favorites Corona virus expert Fred Brown. Become the journalist today and he's going to do an interview or at least being charged by go probably good with a few questions. Fred Fred go negative way. Introduce your guests. I'd like to do. Chris Christie. Chris Welcome to the show were. Present some great New Thoughts about how to contact traits as you know. Sort of the the three ws in the four corners. The three WS are and washing those w on washing number two is. As. Watch, how far away you are, so that's the distance part and. Number three. Of the WS is to. is to. Make sure that you do Let's see. High Department hyper. We got the handwashing part and we've got the distance park, so we have to wash wash the W and we talk about were coins box at a box of the virus in one is tracing I. Sorry. Testing second is tracing the third is isolating in the photos quarantine and Chris has some great tools on how to box drawn better so wired how to talk about. I'm Outta boxing draw virus in terms of testing, tracing and and then isolating and warnings I wanNA talk a little bit about. Don't you saw with the modeling that you're doing and some of the some of the tools you have? Thanks for having me today. I appreciate the invite happy. Happy to discuss You know kind of what we're doing in my my thoughts on contact tracing. We're evolving right revolving endemic hit. We are absolutely into the next phase which is testing recover. Through phases right, yes, and so on the recovery side There's a lot of. Misinterpretation not enough education. In happy do that right return a lot of stories about. How the government is hiring this army of contact tracing that ultimately, will you know call people up in you know? Try to trace these these people down. That are testing positive. That's that's that's a good effort. I don't think it's quite effective. In stow we do is we have a new technology. It's actually an old technologies over. But we kind of it now I to contact rates, so we actually created it for to the OPIOID epidemic in now we We use it for. Tracing. Heartedly attested Kuban nineteen aged Let's talk about trace it because. It's really critical. And what's one of the areas where the US has a chance to learn what I saw? The other countries are doing and what we found so far as I understand it, Chris and Greg. We've got kind of two big out technologies, the first big technology gut is basically GPS. We look where people are building ca the same building the aiding and places like China Taiwan's on using a GPS. and. That's the hassle limitations because you don't know what floor the person is on on crowded environment and don't really know whether the would have gotten that close together really. And then the second one is a little more. A advanced technology is token, and basically when you're. Luth gets close enough to another phone I within six feet of that you take a reading that other person's token, and you know you've been in contact with insufficient contact with that person, at that at that particular point in time, and then can kind of judge whether or not your symptoms at the right period of time and weather need to go get tested. Those the two big competing tests and interestingly Britain. just decided to move. To a less complicated one role, more complicated, one which sort of an interesting decision they were making to do. Contact tracing it at once. Do with a with a centralized version, and the other was to do with a decentralized version. What's interesting about your test? Is it? It's it's more centralized, but it's designed to do things at a much more precise levels I understand it right and crack. So let let's just address the feasability right so. Basically for contact tracing from attack respected, we integrate EPS. So we integrate TBS near field technology. And then let's go one step further for the fact is you have to really have sixty percent or more often meaning user interface? If you don't have that, it will not be a factor. Auto, actually what we've decided to do is we have embraced the enterprise. So unlike government, just pushing this out and hoping that you know three hundred twenty five million people United States will actually use this which I out. We have decided to deploy this on an enterprise level through free market approach, which means that we are going after universities. You're targeting universities hospital systems. You just general businesses as they come back. You know to raise their student population. Their employees piece populations. You know to really educate them as they come back to the workspace university in that will actually. About, a hundred percent user interface and you know I. Think I think that's a really good idea. Because if you think about what happened, the government sort of said okay. We're all GonNa shut down now and actually what happened. Was People already had shut down? By the time the government could balance shutdown already shut down, so that wasn't the issue the issue. Is it each individual Austin? No looks at his office. Her own risk level and says I'm I'M NOT GONNA do this activity anymore, but it's nice. What you've done is work. Activities are about a third of what we do it with. Our lives for example in the university setting. It's almost twenty four hours a day. What you doing the through life so? What you've done is sort of said you know taking that part of our life. That says this is a really important part of our lives, and it could be the safest thing we do every day or the least state thing. Would you ever with? Virus this is one of the things going on the safest places to be. Let's go by. That excites yeah. I. It's funny, because if you Americans are very fickle, they love their spouse lover. Liberty right so. Don't tell me what to do. However, if if an employer says or university says listen, you need to embrace this to make money or come back to university than it's a risk reward, alum, right it's it's really at ease. WORK CONSENT! You know what you're getting yourself into. You understand the riskier the it's very capitalistic, which is very aligned with what we're doing, and if you look what happened with for example, be I'm sorry Idaho. They was no Utah Utah, trying to come out with a tracing system. The one percent of the people in the state signed up for it because you only have one percents. Hitting one percentage point one percent of the chance zero point one percent of against the actually get a contact trace among. The people were using systems that so i. think your system sounds really exciting. In terms of acceptability, standpoint helps a little bit about what it can do. So. It's really It really focuses on true levels. The first level is really addressing. Really addressing in. In the user interface so busy partly, we actually created for the CDC. I'm so. It's very well acted in proven. And, this is where we have the heat map right. It's it's extremely education, right? You have a heat map of total Kobe's. Nineteen cases. And we scraped back through Johns, Hopkins in pub- other public entities. And then then you know, there's news feeds on it, and then then it gets a little more juicy and fine where there's a chat element. The element is really cool, because that's where again if you sort of take the university. Scenario. You know you had students that would ask basic questions. Hey, going to be coming back in September. I'm from this area Coming from this area to be hot, right? You know, what do I do? GET INTO MY DOOR OUT WHY? Are we gonNA have football games yet all the other basic questions, and so the beauty of the ad is. It frees up resources from the university I've got. To Fall phone. You know talking to the kids all the time. You can just it just. Automatically response because of AI intervention. Something else you might be interested in there. What do you think? That's a possibility for sure we. We have announced that we're going to. Students. In for the fall semester that's supposed to start August, twenty four, but the exact form of what that's going to take is still being worked on in depends on events between known. So. Most of our classes are smaller anyway. We have a reputation for small class sizes and. Being social distancing a class with twelve of easier the. Lecture. Well. Let's take that example because you know maybe the guy. To, get together at the at the bar. After the class you know on talk things through. and. So you, know they're using your system and and what's the difference between today where they walk into the bar that relations sure about about the situation versus when they're using it system, they come out of the bar Lt You. Look at what's happening and give a sense of what's what the risks are. The Dow up. That have occurred. Yes so I think again, it's it's again. It's about not knowing knowing right you're now. Nobody knows right, if so, and you WANNA. You WanNa alleviate that so basically what will happen is? Just Kinda, take you through the process and some of the universities number currently working with. What's happening is the all the universities would require the students. Have a baseline baseline would be that have have have to be tested. If tests quarantine fifteen minutes. It tests negative than they income into the university her usual, but they must. They must often on the AC. Escape! What's the opt in then we know where they are. We know where they're coming from. It's not intrusive. It's it's all hip requirements and everything else. No nothing related to in all security. So, then they come to school and they're asking basic questions, but because of our a technology were capturing while that they. Really important as it relates to the administration and the leaders because. We can then push information out based upon strategy right, so we can see if there's if there's a big. On if there's a big influx of students come from a hot SPA STATES DETROIT. GOING MSU. We can identify okay. We have a thousand students coming this such a coming to issue. We need to put them in a specific dorm because they could be tested positive. So this all is effective with strategy. And we have grass that that absol- being integrated AI and machine learning in the process of the ones that further fred. So basically would happen is there this university would conduct serial testing round the semester. Because they have to because you could get you know is in it. But ultimately the the future would be. We would integrate like SORTA, red and green dots lift qr codes. Go here, point near field technology so that little Johnny! If he's got a wreck, he can't get into the paternity party receiver. and He's got red whereas Sarah Sally in hidden. Right it because he's. It's they really that simple. Yeah, so you're. You're looking at all the different. Kind of Indicators and integrating those together, and then looking at the individual and seeing what that behaviors been with those factors in the environment and then saying. Yup looks like you've been pretty safe in the past fourteen days. You've gotTa Green. Signal and you gotta read single. Say You you better hold back and what do to take classes enrolling in the case to you I. Yeah, and what's really good. Is You guys remember from? Windows I started at a new. York remember the new Rochelle break out. Any couldn't find the guy for thirty days right. This can identify real fast twenty four to forty eight hours. He's really really important hats fats. Weird breakout we can identify that in in tracking. And you know for the audience. They may not realize how much better the United States has gotten testing when we first out our first Kuban. patient was January twenty six, and the and we know that, and then it took us. All the way until March, fifteenth or so so other almost three months to test the verse Twenty Thousand People. Today we do twenty thousand every day. We'll do forty thousand every day or by September. So you get a sense of just how powerful take algae lic yours can be Chris when you have all the other, said sensitivity and all other signals. Coming through plus a viable test and viable recent tests that I I think we're. We're getting there. So, but we need to accelerate. There's no doubt. The in it's funny. It's funny because the biggest challenge that we are facing right now. Especially State University writing universities is that they're moving too slow. Now what we tell them is got. Don't worry about the civil liberties. That's not your biggest issue. Worry about the legal cases if somebody gets sick on your watch. It if mom and dad are sending little johnny off in to his safe environment. You're not providing that. Very careful. Yeah you what you take a jack. The guess you ransom scenarios Fred gave you some scenarios. Folks gathered groups as they are want to do these days. What sort of impact that would have only get into some of those? Shirts have slides or graphics what you have. I'm still what we did was. So we took. We took the state of basically said we scrape data from basic. Public Databases Clyde. Johns Hopkins which unfortunate every day and we have it in an industrial time day. And then from there what we do is we do some overlapping. Based upon counts in Michigan, I did from Michigan. And, so what we found was actually. Amazing so so for example We found that we did with unemployment rate. So what we found. In Wayne County, Wayne County has the largest. Number of Kobe. Kobe. Nineteen testing right. One of the areas that would be very high based on unemployment rate was genesee. And that was. That was kind of amazing to me. but it didn't it. Obviously, it's not comparable to wait, but it had a very high level of. A cove nineteen patients associated with unplanted. Did I'll go a little step further. So. Screen if you are yes. Yes little green box I'll about I'm sorry. Sharon screen. I get I get. there. Yet, What's interesting is model. Start off being being statistical, and eventually they become mechanistic, which means we moved from a situation where you're a probable answer was the answer to Maria can say now given this this this input. Here's what the answer is and model slowly evolve Chris's on the Edgier were we're getting to a point where we're getting some answers of than just well? Fall this last, we're actually getting some brocade him. Ask You were. You attended these classes you went to this are always you start to get a much more precise and a sense of what what level risk is. That make sense rather say while you're part of this. This coordinator. Got A thirty percent chance. Oh yes. Yes awesome! Okay, so basically! So this represents what we do, is we? As I said, we currently scraped a based on Hopkins and other public databases that report Nineteen Eighty S. And then it does states, and we have an APP that that offer users the same kind of information and then what I did was we went back in, and we went to acidic counties so obviously like Wayne County is. To See here most counties I think those to Oakland mccown right? On than it. Just basic information right so I'M GONNA skip down to the. Par-. To, so for example we haven't seen learning that it. That integrates not only based upon testing, but also other algorithms that for so this indicates that by August second we're GonNa have Michigan will have a a a very large Increase in the number of cases close one hundred dollars. Route Sixty seven thousand a day. Yeah, what's what's interesting is it looks like we're kind of going going slowly slowly slowly. What about these models is? The did actually starts to talk about exit. Look at the exponential growth opportunities. Only we look at our right now. Our our reproductive rate in Michigan was well below one. The through may but When we started to turn the corner and opened things up is now well over what? Happened David of of having a big outbreak in a few months. What's also? Important is that this? You know this rat this in this model? Does, not only represent number of tests as Right, that's. Much more comprehensive and it actually some of this information, which meeting income most affected areas. Weather and humidity humidity correlation, which is pretty amazing. you know if you look at the you know insincere in the insincere was linked. County is one of the babies. And related to other markets. It's it's It's it's pretty compound. On this is what I was talking about before the unemployment rates so. For, people who are our audience, Wayne is Wayne is basically Detroit Oakland avoid suburb. mccombs straits can't grand rapids. Get Tennessee's Clinton's a lot, so you get a sense of where we are in a state Kalamazoo. Go taps argued Roy. Case so and and Fred Chinese his. You're more familiar with the county's than I am so so I'm based in new. York area. But the so like for example here, genesee you can see the unemployment rate in end animals to sector areas in correlating that right. You're looking at nine point almost ten percent of unemployment, if confirmed cases versus this guy. The ratio is actually quite hot. That is compelling so really. What does that mean needs for government officials or our leaders that perhaps some of these things have a lot to do with the scrap Brian. Not, only you know In close to one another like we have one graph that was related to broadband and you. If you go to you, know the your this one. If you think about you, know the the issue of access to the Internet. Access to education and the information. You know broadband penetration correlation for most affected areas. There is a direct correlation. Zoo affected areas and lateral. Correlation causation is not necessarily causation, but we're finding more and more of that. When you add the I components in your able you actually zero zoom on individuals and enterprises. Then he can start actually. I. Look at the cost and we are finding. Especially in rural communities an F. quorum a minority. They're having a actually authorization that we're started to find with loops. Grab absolutely, and so these are the so these are the me these are. This is sort of goes back to our original conversation. Right for contact praising. And, if you WANNA make phone calls. That's great, but you need these tools. We can easily integrate these tools to complement overall contact tracing so that we are successful, and we are extremely knowledgeable in how we how we do this. In our leaders, the university presidents, the Cu you knows as they re as we go through this this next phase of recovery and bring students in employees back and follow patient populations because there will be spikes. Had A. Redo this. How do we maintain the relationship? I'M! Truly really important and I'll give an example like in New York I'm not gonNA. We're doing a couple of hospital systems. Obviously Europe's was hit hard on, we had we had surgeon stat out because they couldn't. Practice can do surgery. They were actually part of contact tracing army on behalf. hostels is just think about that. You have a surging. That is making phone calls following up with the general ation and basically saying hey, how will you feel? Fully, under underemployed Yeah and you know in Michigan, we're trying to actually. Graduate for has a our governor has a program were trying to recruit? Volunteers and we're trying to recruit twenty two hundred volunteers in Michigan. But when you get up to one hundred thousand cases, you can imagine each of those people were confirmed. Cases are probably GONNA have contact with between six and twenty more people always on your contract tracing operation. It completely overwhelmed right you can't. You just can't follow up that that on that many and you can't make good diary notes, and then at that point, really savvy, the some of the value, a of contact tracing subsides with with an augmentation of machine learning. Computers. We can really do a great job with it. A unique with US followed number. People's left the exciting part of the especially with. We are generating enormous traction especially with hospital systems universities because we feel, it's our duty to help, and so we've decided to do is defer initial costs associated with this with the actual deployment, because they shouldn't be worried about costs initially will. We'll take that on, but ended the day. It's the it's a freeman model because we feel very strongly that this. American needs to get back to war in America needs to get back to some sense of normalcy. And it asked the must integrate. You know it's sort of this this. integrations be very very inexpensive, relatively at a very quick accurate, way of leading an open up with some knowledge is so often as just. A, Ham, fisted approaches. We're GONNA shut down the whole economy. Open it all up going enterprise to enterprise versus the person. You really getting down to the level that you need to open up you wisely. An extensive I. Think it's Great. Let me leave me in here. One of the things that we just got. Back was whether or not the outside temperature headed impact on reducing the virus in I. Don't doesn't that we know that. You guys see this graph. Yes, so lathering humidity correlation for most affected areas right so. And humidity. Wayne. So the temperature was close to eighty degrees, right humidity is low agai- so so the answer question on it. Off. And and you know one of the things that we here's here's what we do know about medical protocol and we just need again. More research needs to be done very question medical. Call right now we have. No all we have is is, aren't he'd for fifteen days. That's it so we don't know we have no idea. If whether or humidity has a dramatic effect on it, you know definitively from a research perspective we don't. We don't know if fifteen days is good enough. We don't know if you're immune after fifteen days, or you're still you know a passing on the illness if we don't. We don't have any of this information. Unfortunately the biggest thing we're worried about in the fall, people understand about the weather is get cold. Colder people start to get back inside more and that really is highly correlated with with with with advanced progression of the disease. That's why we're so worried. What's going to happen with Lucy's okay? We've only got about a minute left so. We do role and give you half an hour this time. FRIEND IS ISO over well was brake job with that. Chris I really appreciate the time and these kind of tools and techniques as people get more familiar with them. I think they felt they become part of life. And you get more than you get happier with integrating that that part of life without really thinking about it, and eventually this will become part of life as we, as we get better with this, and it's great that you're on the finance French, while the if people want more information on this Christopher. How do they get a hold of you or I. For me and It's jagged. My email so just give all the dredged. Okay so see 'em at G. Ventures. AM. Ventures DOT CO, the best way. And Fred Dot Brown dot covid.

That thing was so funny that you said it's funny because I I like to pick out the clips but like I get to listen to the whole thing and there's shit we talked about like. I don't even remember talking about that is so funny though. It's a good. It's a good partnership. I like going through the youtube comments and seeing what people really like about the show. 'em You're always going to be those few assholes last week. Dion is the smartest one everybody else's stupid and I started to say really motherfucker at all. Oh fuck is detailed picture sweatpants. He's got like the keep it loose and always trying to get the youtube lady so Sam but a lot of people really like the back and forth they people always say they learn something from you. Which is I like. We'll GIG. We WanNA learn something. It's all about bringing people together. I know sometimes you'll be feeling like we've races and shit. I don't feel like you've racist. There's some days you feel racist. I mean come on being the communist people. I'm racist all the time you white mother for illegal I am the most. Yes you raise you say if I owned a gun I was. Shoot YOU UTILIZE. Believe it or not. The only time I have racist thoughts is when I'm here. Don't you know when you come to the house? Though I know I'm talking about like I put on a piece you blank a Mexican Chinese Asian whatever. I'm racist black people to you when I'm in the car you do something stupid and traffic. Oh the worst comes out. I'm glad there's no recordings Mike Car I put on my I put on a podcast and listening to drive and like I don't think about it and my dad.

I fucking hate old people and then you get the blowing on and they stop. It starts shaking Parkinson Kiki and they don't say and let me start because bitchy about the befits ego me all going to be blowing at you but I'm be wondering bitches angle nil you know and I'm GonNa be on. I probably go into the club when I'm seventy fat and you go to the club. Now when you get older you WANNA do young people. She you through their teenage Andy. I'm settled down legal. Let me fucking far before you go through this day. Generally for us. Everything's getting shut down now so we will be able to have fun so things are moving like hourly so we're recording this on the sixteenth and it'll be released a week so let's preface with whatever we say here know that because we could all be in. Fema camps by next Tuesday who going no. Fema can't what you you're in a FEMA CAM. I walked in here. I was immediately doused with Lysol by Gary Ana. June bug held me down. You bow down to and go take. This is my policy if I WON'T CORONA. Oh my listen. Let Corona Corona here. There's handwashing guidelines on the mirror in there with these dirty kids. I understand why the fuck there's a log in there. No I'm sorry keyes she. I don't know why keys she thank. You both. Soak up a runaway nonni. Why kids either shitting toilet. What he lied specialties Bush. Now you wash your hands but you won't wipe away obvious you did not wipe you a full log. No toilet paper in there. How's that possible? Somebody guessing she draws right now. Need somebody got our. Don't feel it. I might have probably got a highway on the way here enough to the right there now to level we do itchy asshole material. We're going to have to do episodes of Louis about it. Did you ever see that episode? Where they're talking about I before we get on Corona. Did you ever see the episode? Because I'm wondering you tour Comedians. He Confronts Dane Cook about stealing his joke about itchy assholes. When you have shit in your but I remember that or Dane Cook said you stole my joke and and Louis goes not for nothing but like poop and your asshole itches is a common human experience. It's not your fucking joke like it's my asshole some along like. How do you guys like? Have you ever gotten accused of stealing a joke or like or this? Thing's a really common thing that it's on when I first started and I didn't know shit about comedy I. I used to tell a joke that I learned off a comic view I will go to went to a all-black party with one of my white friends. And right as music cutoff turned to them. Say who you call it Nigga. I got that from comic view so that was my closer for like probably six months before someone was like. Hey can't do that right and I didn't know any better I didn't know and since then no I never heard you do. This is when I started who was a comedian. I don't remember. His name is light skinned dude. I think it was from the New Orleans season of comic view and so a black commentary in she was somebody else. Joe Professional Comic told me it was somebody else's joke. I never did that. Comedians aren't graceful about that stuff. They just immediately assume your piece of Shit. You stole that your mother not. Maybe he's new and doesn't know. Sometimes you pin still joe it. Yeah it depends on like the like you can tell when someone who legitimately doesn't fucking know any better versus someone who should know better and like Bro. You know you stole like Carlos. Moncia should have known better which means sure he did. Nobody saying folk really. Yeah he didn't give like Michael Car. You say people jokes and I don't know if this is stealing or he just complementing the person but he is saying well. This person say this here do the job. So they're still. They're paying him to take other people's jokes. That's fucking Stephen. St Louis are a heck. Is You know her? Was NACHO cheese. Cheese that joke microcode. He just got a ticket in Philadelphia. Did you guys see that? He was in Philadelphia. Was Who is this Michael Collier? He's a he's a black comedian okay. He was young video me. Okay yeah he He was in Philadelphia in a park smoking a cigar. We'll just walking through the park with him and a couple of people and cops gave him a ticket for smoking in the park. He didn't know he couldn't smoke in the park as he's getting a ticket this white man walks by with a cigarette and they don't fuck in say anything so. Michael Collier's on. Facebook live was in. These COPS ARE RACIST. And he's going in on him and he's like. I didn't see no sign. Some white lady comes like there's and he's like well I didn't see it so like should I get a warning or anything and they wrote him a hundred dollar ticket. So what did the white man get the fuck? Oh that's what he got. He just walked right on by smoking cigarettes. Nobody's ever seen the show dinosaurs. He kind of looks like the baby. That's a month final pitch. It just says that. Look like the live action. Mario movie is out for me. So it's going to be a rough two months for us. We an online school. Because everybody's scared of Corona virus. Which is real. I don't understand you know what I do. Like about the corona virus. It's got some redeeming quality. Gas is one seventy one. Skews THE FUCK. Outta you start like a Nigga Bank crack the other thing. I like about five dollars. At a time she's dead as cheap gas prices airlines. I really feel sorry for the airlines. Yeah gas you can't go nowhere the fucking put it in a refrigerator. Bala gas nowhere to go. Libertarians are well-known prep race. I know people who have fifty gallons of gas in the garage. And I'm like you're GONNA blow up. No gaming stuff is really cheap. I Hate Airlines has taken a beating when I flew in from Philly Philadelphia Man. It was literally like twenties on people. And they're playing. I've never seen twenty something that plane from Atlanta Indiana's is mother fucking. Why is fuck you is probably three or four black people in the whole place? There was nobody mobile plan. First Class probably has succeeds. Well how many none really know is you'll have no fucking seeks out because You know this is our culture not at Bushey. It'd be doing here. Fucking agriculture agriculture. I can't pronounce it agriculture. Whatever fucking stops picking off camera and we'll give you a pass because he thought that corn was grass. When you first moved here did the sounds like fucking mad now coach. Nick Failed Guy. Go Summer School do all these same. I'm trying to correct my for English. My friend goes understand. I'm thinking about getting a ticket to Mexico for early. May It's thirty one dollars. I'm like because they know that they're going to get your thirty one dollars. You're never gonNA get to go. You've watching the same news programs. I am what are you doing? I just saw Leo flowers wrapped in Peru Peru. He's a comic friend of ours. He's just he's trying desperately because they're shutting it down today like your beat up for fourteen days. I will not leave the airport. I was sleeping apple fourteen like the Tom Hanks movie. Yeah Nick. Our handcuffed myself to sink last week in the radio. Industry Event Industry. Like if you work in any of those industries sports that suck this week. It's restaurants travel. Yeah my daughter's now. She's hot. Damages flew to Atlanta. Yeah Yeah I told her. I don't go ask Biz Limitation. Some of you get trapped. Our lacking do is put a note on October back and try to see some sees. I'm not coming out fucking got plenty of gas dropped down and I'm not driving. No motherfucker where you even have me was next. Lueders crazy knocking wonders. I'd but stealing the people about you come up here. We don't each of fucking yet early. My my friend lives in New York City. All the little Bodega were empty trader. Joe's on Friday had three hours long and I told my friend I was like you need to come home. You need to come home to Indiana. It's have you seen. I am legend like it's I absolutely. No this is real. It's real his real Goddamn here with Alba get it new IH real Tom. Hanks could be trying to trap for his second pole in New Guinea would look for its balls. The Ball Cadillac wheels. He should be he. Bobby China right another wheels but each the name of the movie with name was asked to cast away. Probably trying to make a second cask away. What would a fucking disease but let me tell you some? Each album guided day Nikki. Real black people can't get this black NIGGA black man nickel black and black and then we'll get no blocking the each. He blacked with French and kneel down South Nikki. Black is full so Jaba stay ever forget that especially you know healthcare heaven as most vulgar land that you need to get a call and fall the fuck off. I'm telling you now about our response to this like a Lotta people you see on facebook. Don't think Israel I've known black people black people can't get it and I'm like it is the first time we've heard this disease. Oh let me tell. The blackbeard said to me. So I'm airport right now. I got my sanitizer wipes and I got a hand sanitizer and I got gloves. I'm ready for these sheep so I'm ordering some food. And she said Oh does lifestyle white person. Yeah she said you know them. Wipes got to corona virus. Don't you what I call doing? Unbelievable dumb busy with that was so dumb that I just looked at her. And I say Bitch. GimMe my rich. I can't Ogle just stupid. This is that a wives got got the Koran of. Where do these people get this information from like October the convert like I don't know the inverse but like white conservative America does not believe this is real at this point you know? Hopefully we're still in the situation. Where not a lot of people are dying. We just had our first death here like it's all you don't have to trust the government. Just look at Italy and trust your is like literally the problem. Is that if any one of us? Got It if the three of us got it if the listener gets it. If you're under sixty you're going to get a bad cold. It's going to be a sucky cold. You're going to be fine. You're not. There's no need to panic. The problem is that so many people get it at once and they. There's so much feared that people rushed to the hospital and you go from these hospitals that have one hundred percent capacity to five hundred CA percent capacity in a couple of days and then people die. Because there's not enough fennel later for the people who can't breathe because corona virus is a virus that attacks your lungs and so if you if you feel symptoms if you have allergies and you don't know corona virus or not. I'm not saying don't go tested but there's nothing that Yeah Damn Tez is never that. I called to see if they're available here. It's nine hundred dollars but the CDC is GonNa Make It free and by the time this airs. Katie Porter you will be able to go through a drive through tests later on or whatever it is being white lady whose US she's a being eaten white congresswoman. That didn't help me figure out who you're talking about a lot of being eating white ladies as you know playing and she She sounds she didn't play basketball thread. Netball she say does the house she said. Well that's how I saw it coming out of it. Make she she basically for all intents and purposes said exactly what to say she was targeted ads. Like this bitch is crazy. She's I wanna hit that she was going to be. Three name is trending on twitter for for that as she finally say is going to be free as she say. America is free shoutout to Roche Diagnostics Indianapolis Company that built this test. That it's only a matter of hours you can find out but like don't freak out everybody's freaking out freaking out in other countries as overwhelms the healthcare system so just be smart like if you get it and you're young and healthy like if you have breathing problems amount. She did because people need to know people already don't know they don't assume that the people vast majority of people are are you. Are you not taking antibiotics I am? It's a virus. It's not if you take antibiotics. Thank you I'm going to bring. I'm taking it out. Abide I take the immune drank Mu Muzy booze your age. I go down over here and we'll help your immune system not having a green fuck. You think that's your problem. Abby pissing green because I am full vitals at Abbey washing my hair. And I ain't going back out to get them to return to get my money back again. Clues Council. Did you get your money back? Oh I went to my bank today. Date thinking about data to guide them. I need my fucking macroom got councilman date got cancelled and then I ought to Gucci glazes. Awesome glands because you motherfucker stole my glasses. So Awesome Library. And they came in fake fake motherfucker. Y'All like I don't know fake less. I said Bitch you got the right one Eat Bitch is a bitch uber. Google I want my money back and I'm calling pay payroll now bitch ass nigger. That's what I emailed and they called me back. We have some tough economic times ahead. I want you to start an Airbnb for white people where you yell at Customer Service Reps to get their money back for stuff. I'd never do what you just get my money back. I don't play. That shit is hard time. We batted going some lock down my whole Mike Getting A. Oh I ain't doing she. Air About Nagato bag took for Clearance Rudolph. This is so sad. He's not gonNA be Christmas. I'M GONNA miserable advocate I. I'm bracing for the fucking rough times. Oh dear hear about someone you knew and who they like. Just you know go go over. These Coronas Fire Shit and you can get your You'll get your bills. She pay you can get your phone bill and your gas and light be away so I say okay. We're good idea if people not work in the government telling everybody way to bill but what I want to know before I go sign up for this year. When is she? Oh I'M GONNA have to three BS on top of each other. I don't think so. I think what a lot of companies and and what everybody's doing like a like a waving of it like a grace period you know you get this month free. I think you're going to see a lot of that because there's a lot of I mean this isn't anybody's fault maybe China's because they didn't shut down travel but like the reality is. It's nothing anybody that is alive. Bats this whoever eight the first fucking badge. Yeah that's that. I think they did that. She could trumpism. Oh I think they say a young Yang. We're GONNA put this. You don't want two. Did you. Just say Yang took off for the team. They young young apply to move ahead. Call her how to spread as she got back to. China they kill Yang Yang. What the fuck happened. China will kill the shit out of you know fucks China. Basically cover this up and then one doctor put posted a video saying everybody needs to pay attention. This guy gave it to Yang. Ain't come to America and he's guilty and a reporter tried to report on. Yangyang him too so everybody day. Report a day to day viruses. Up Your fucking aspirin. They put you know that'd be taking the team. They take one for the team. I'm telling Ya game was over here. I don't even think hanging knew he was taking one for the team but he didn't have a choice. Well what are they going on field trips to America? Who knows what they told him. But that's how they get you. That's how the government do she one day behind it. They say you go and data for us. We're GONNA take your family if you don't even know if they're gonNA do this shit but don't who do. Who Do they be? Sam You go on you go blow up your said we're GonNa take care of your family. That's Isis Isis Isis. By the way this I don't know if this was a real headline but if it's fake when it's funny I suspend all terrorism. Due to corona virus. They suspended real terrorism. Because of this. That's crazy they don't want to get a cold blowing nigger you do a suicide bombing empty bus station yourself. I read this killing yourself. So how you going? How are you going to do if you did a good job yourself? You can't get no verges if you don't kill nobody. Yeah that's fucked up. So that's that's how I got to America. Yao's you see that dude now. The white man who bought seventeen thousand seven hundred bottles of Egypt donated. They made them don't he was politely. But I think eight dollars sanitizer from him to you. Would I think I bought a bottle sanitizer dollars? I did I thought it was some special edges e. Hey we need A. That's why this works. He charged three times the price or the new win money. So he didn't give. He will probably going to be a millionaire. But what my thing is you can not the main wholesome. Yeah you can yeah. You can't because when you're a hustling off people's fears and insecure. I want about it honestly if out about seventeen thousand dollars. Seventy eight o'clock Joe Black. No I would've sold it for two dollars. You doubling your money. That's what my bet. Here point your I wouldn't I wouldn't have sold it. I mean two dollars to fit the mold. I'll make an dollar fetuses. She stole a truck tires. You really think you're GONNA get that. Craig is sold Italian. Bottom of fungi. Would you be putting that for me? Is Why people's chicks do black. People had no money back not forward shake black. People don't have money to day when you're talking when forages all about the check number. The person had to count on a long time and a lot of time. Gloria Jean started at two hundred eight months ago maybe a year ago. I had a checkbook one time. I think I use the toll of five checks on your whole life my whole life. Yeah I still have the checkbook but I closed that account. Tom Cruise fucking chasing their gangsters other than rent. Maybe two checks ever. I never wrote a check. That wasn't rent. Yeah ever virus you. What do you think GonNa Happen? So it's it's hard because this is going to air week for now. I think if you look at Italy in China what happens is the government is going to institute corentin already kind of slowly moving into that. So people don't freak out too much because this past week everybody hit the shelves and they started rating. The food stores like need a one to two week. Cushion at grocery stores are going to stay. Open the banks are going to stay open. The pharmacies the hospitals like if they say non essential businesses need to close like going to be. It's it's just you're gonNA half food like you don't need to go buy too much because what happens is you go and buy all the stuff that Walmart and Meyer. Kroger gives to Midwest Food Bank and then food shelters which have an increased demand because of unemployment can't feed people so take what you need like you don't need seventeen thousand gallons of hand sanitizer like. I just think it's really important that we kind of look out for each other in this time period. Because everybody's GONNA suffer hardship. What you going to do for me. Curious this podcast. Everybody has to suffer hard. Why would you do for me? Create podcast GONNA write Nigga Chicken. Shit please you know. I got Audi children being home school.

Yeah the I'm watching people freak the fuck out all the time like hidden all these different facebook groups and twitter. I'm just seeing the panic. And it's because everybody's kind of acting like a hurricane right now because there isn't a personal life that's ever been through a pandemic so we don't know what to do how to prepare for it. The reality is just stay. Calm like you're going to get a cold and if you are sick and you need treatment go get it but if you if I get it. I'm a thirty six year old male. I'M GONNA survive. I don't WanNa go and take up hospital resources from somebody like who's a seventy year old smoker houses stuff. Yeah I'm GONNA corny myself. I'm a stay home. I've been staying home for the last week like this particular weeks really important because the problem is at pops you get a few cases and then it starts to cluster and then all of a sudden there's a sudden explosion of the disease and that's what overwhelms everybody so what you're likely going to see is The military right now is preparing to set up mash units cities on a news report.

You are going to stockpile for people who are bigger and stronger than say or are you saying that you think we're about to hit that or you just saying in general. Why would you prep? Why would you?

You didn't get my mother fucker fish nigger but sit there and we're GONNA kiss. Db's together clean them eating together but that's all they go. Somebody's people you know. I think people really overreacting wife. I'M GONNA be honest and I hate to say this. I think people overreacting because it's donald trump that honestly because Obama del age. AiN'T NOBODY PANIC. Would ask you your. They did people went out. And Bob Brand toilet paper. No I don't remember that participant. I don't remember that I think and I'm saying and I'm being honest with you. I think people are overreacting because Donald Trump said it was a whole when it was real and I think I think I think and you know. Don't nobody likes Donald Trump. I think it was any other president in whatever happened. They wouldn't be acting the way they are. I think it because people think Donald Trump is not smart enough to take care of this country. All the government had to do was get the test out. They fucked it up and over the host. Yeah he said he said it was a house. It was a Democrat holes. It wasn't real if he had taken his series and did the right steps. So you're telling me that. The president of the United States didn't prioritize the people of this country because he didn't want to lose votes. No I'm saying that he because that's what happened because that's exactly. What if you listened last night to his press conference about the Fed? He's going on. About how great this move was because trump has been obsessing about the Fed raising rates and hurting his economy. So he can't he won't get reelected and so all he talked about was the economy and then he walked out of the room after talking about what affected him and then pence took over and he made Pencil presidential and then they have this great press conference tons of information like Donald Trump is obsessed with what affects him and that is sadly he is proving Hillary Clinton's point in two thousand sixteen. What if we what? If you have a four o'clock in the morning phone call do you want? Donald Trump at the helm when there's a major crisis and this is I don't know about you but I'm not like I'm not personally scared. I remember nine eleven like being really scared because I was eighteen. But I knew it wasn't really going to affect me like I wasn't going to really have to unless I got called up this. Everybody like my mom's a nurse you know like. I know people that are going to be affected with this. I may be affected with it as more. It's way more impactful and it's like there has been no sense that even if you didn't like George Bush in the days after nine eleven you went. You protect you didn't feel scared. I remember when George Bush I was. I don't work in Vin. Were Making Day for the football game and we were playing a football game news right after nine eleven and I remember when he bomb because they put it on the TV and they say he jazz bomb Iraq or wherever funky bomb. I felt so proud and I didn't vote for him. I I'm I'm a Democrat but I felt like George Bush was president and he did what he had to do to protect this country. And that's why tell you people feel like I believe. I believe people are overreacting. Because they don't have usually no matter who your president is whether Democrat or Republican is some issues that you don't have faith in them but overall issue you believe that they're gonNA take the country. I don't think people feel like this man GonNa take the country. If Shit went down like I tell you what really bothered me when he said wow the tests going be three thousand dollars breath and I'm and I'm thinking lake and I'm up the people in my family. I can pay for each one of my family's Tennessee. But what about people who cannot afford and I was like tennis so fucked I do okay and We called the other night and I was nine hundred dollars and I said okay. Everybody who hears that? The State Board of Health didn't know where to get a test. This was Saturday and they said we've the day before. The governor had bragged that there are one hundred test in Indiana. And then you call you find one hospital. That has one in his nine hundred dollars. And so nobody's go get tested so now you've got all these people on facebook going. Well there's no cases look at this because nobody's being tested like it's it's a complete failure by the government at every level and it's not just at trump's fee. It's a multilevel agency failure but somebody had to say it but at the end of the day like when you look back at nine eleven you remember. George W Bush's leadership the greatest moment of leadership through this crisis is at the NBA and the NCWA walking away voluntarily from millions possibly billions of dollars for the public good. And they said we're GONNA take that hit people. People set sacrifices being made by people like Dionne going. I know it can't go to work and I'm going to have to suck it up. It's going to be horrible economically but I'm going to get through this because if I do go to work. Somebody's GonNa get hurt like every single person on the planet has to has to make some sacrifice. Donald trump is not willing to do that. That's what I'm saying. I'm that's what I'm saying. I'm saying if IT WASN'T DONALD TRUMP in office. I think we as America will feel a little bit safer. Yeah I know I would have. Because when he I said this is a Democrat host. An anti started kind of googling. What this you I said I think this shit is real all may and when I watched the democratic debate last night it was an opportunity for one of those two guys to walk out and go. I know you're afraid I know there's a lot of ships you don't understand going on. Here's what's going on. We're GONNA get through this. Here's the next steps. We need to take. Neither one of them did that. They just went after trump. They went after each other. It's a complete lack of leadership at all levels of government. It's really it's what we all as Americans have been saying to each other for a long time. Don't talk about my Democratic Party. You you don't think that they adding Washington Beijing Sleet. He's right yeah. Neither one of them did a good job reassuring people. Oh Oh white me wish. Liz Warner Emi. Both me either. One of them can get leaked elected in and get excited and CRA. Cova right there before they do the speech. That's what they're like. You're seventy eight near seventy one. What are you doing to protect yourself? And they're like well. We're not having crowds doing online. You know I mean it's yeah. They always fall. I watched it. Did you feel even I know? I'm not a Democrat called like the last fifteen twenty minutes of it and it was basically Joe Biden going embargo on the idea is this and this is the idea. Like neither one of them talked he was talking about a Bernie Sanders talked about Medicare for all. And it's like all right dude even if you agree with that. That's a five year argument like people want to know what you're doing this week and Joe Biden at least had some plans but it was just very divisive and I think right now people looking for somebody to bring people together which is why. I'm proud to announce that miss pat is running for president. You WANT ME BE PRESIDENT. Do worse you bow right costing them white motherfucker that. I'd be like I say you're going to get rid of them bitch. Diamond Conceal Cosa. Well never mind dion. You want to run for president. I do actually. I would make this fucking raggedy anymore. That's already making that ragging make this motherfucker now ragged. If you raise you get your Dick cut off. Oh Racist get day. Dick's chopped up at is not going to be a popular racism in your car. A bobble still racism. Me You call like I do. I Will Make Dead D. S. O. Show keep you racing because I because call out of your house when when I'm when I'm driving I don't think you can say anything. The white people that's races. I really don't why people seem to think Saudi people gary response to that episode. Like oh you call gear races. No Yeah just because you have a certain skin. Color doesn't mean you're racist. That's kind of a racist idea. I mean like like we yonkers and crackers. It really don't bother it's not offensive. You say in where men will literally beat the Dog Shit. Outta you now. You know what it is and I keep telling me why people is when you say nigger to us is something it goes to. Our bodies weaken filling. Yeah even if you just grandly saying you can literally feeling when I was younger it affected me a lot worse than it does today like if I hear somebody normally when someone calls you in word the response is it's a fight or flight response and now I hear and I just I look at people and I'm like is that the best you can do right if that's all you got. I'M NOT GONNA waste my time. Get Mad cuss you out of my car like I just don't have the energy anymore to be ready to stop them holding you. 'cause you call me. Nigger at the grocery store like I don't give a that hassle of wheelchairs s and everything. That's come after that is not like. I rather not deal with the hassle of what happens afterward. Do you think it's that they want that emotional reaction because they want that power over you. Yeah no one. No one says that word and anger and not know the repercussions of it. You Chelsea the two women on airplane that got the fighting. No Yeah Oh somebody's sitting there and say is that you say now but out of the same mother fucking thanks.

Would it rhymes with? I'm a cowboy from the past in the late eighteen hundreds where I come from. It is the paramount importance to be a good shot. That's a skill. I never much acquired because of back that I grew up without a father. He left us when I was about two years old. I never got a lot of tutelage from him raise my mother and fourteen fifty or so I never really was a maestro with a sick shooter. That wasn't till I had my first sip main Grio ever since that Broza touched my lips. My shots finish sharp is a needle aggress hoppers hay bail. You know what I mean? Anyways, just wanted to say thank you to Adam Carola, and to mango, I can't appreciate it enough from all yell. Thank you, head to Corolla drinks dot com and enter promo code cowboy for twenty percent off orders of three or more bottles. Wow. We back with don't call him William column. Bill Nagel, cedar. That's phonetically written out here. Worked for the times for many years work with my buddy Shelby coffee. In DC before you came here. Right, right. I freelance for the post back in the white seventies. And harley. Shelby was the entertainment editor at the time. So that's how I knew him. He came to the times after that great guy editor and chief at the time. So it was my my boxing student many years ago fins is the name of the book Harley Earl the rise of General Motors and the glory days of Detroit, and it's available now on Amazon, and you can bookmark us and click through our site. Thanks for that. So you lament that there's no real, I don't know personality and cars today. Well, not like that used to be all kind of look alike to me. I mean, you know, as I said, I was comedy on your your green Aston Martin. I love green cars. I never see green car anymore. Drive around L A looking for Rinku Arthur's. I don't know what it is about American car buyers and green they don't they're all either black grey, silver or white every thirtieth car might be dark red, and that's pretty much it. Well, you know, it's interesting that you bring up the color because. For me. It's sort of important because my ass and Martin is in acid Martin racing green that is their color. If you find max patta, a color picture of an Aston Martin from like the fifties or sixties that like one llama like Carroll Shelby one llama in an Aston Martin. I don't know most people don't know that are you know, what? If you find out like one that's old for twenty million bucks and one up for sale and auction two years ago, or whatever it is. It's it's their color. It's there. It's there nations their brands color there is that color that ASA Martin racing rain, which is the same colors, Mike car. So if you're going to buy Nassar, Martin don't get it and black or white get in get it in color, and if you're gonna Ferrari get in their color. Yeah. I agree. British racing green. That was always my favorite color. When I was a kid. I grew up in the car business. So of course, we're from time I was conscious of being alive cars where everything to me. So you want you want green cars, what else do you want? And by the way, if you're in L A, and you're talking about green cars, you're going to be misinterpreted. Fine runs on French fries. You know, I just I remember the car the car's when I was a kid when I first discovered cars, I mean my dad worked for Chrysler Corporation. He was a sales manager. And I remember the night nineteen fifty five standing out in front of the house on a hot summer night with the kids at the around the ice cream truck. And my dad came up the street and turn into our driveway with pink and white. Nineteen fifty five to Soto fire dome hardtop and everybody's mouth dropped open. And all the kids ran away from the ice cream chart and climbed all over the car. And I never forgot that these cars in the fifties. And the sixties American stuff had crazy two tone combinations. Retune some to intones interiors were crazy. There is something distinctive about every brand. I have my theory. And it's more than the theory. I think I think it's a fact I I think if you I always think about like military aircraft. And if you take a look at stuff from World War Two, you can go well that stuff American stuff Japanese, and that stuff German now, everything is the same shape because it computer turned everything into the same shape that computer went. Here's what works best. You don't get to guess what works best. And obviously if you're in Japan or Germany or the United States you're going to have much guys with pencils trying to figure out what works best. But the computer says, here's what works best. And now everything sort of looks the same. When you take a look at cars, you take a look at a Honda Genesis. And you take a look at a. Audi seven series, some they say seven they just sort of looked the same because the computer just sort of made the most slippery designed, right? The cars of the fifties. However were were different. They were products of the war on of the fact that this country had just one global war. No one ever done it before everything anything's possible in America. There was a sense of exuberance. We were on top everything and the cars reflected that the colors the designs, which did have a sort of airplane look to them. And that was the title of the book sort of as a fins is a metaphor for what the fifties were. And it was that sort of rolling statement furniture. Oh, yeah. Well, couches in a car. Well, that's that's what Harley Earl you know, he thought that car should be that was his idea. What a modern American cars should be it should be as comfortable as your living. That's what people are looking for. They're gonna spend. A lot of time in it and one in the early days before Hurley arrived on the scene, the interior of the car was something they never thought about the carpets was invented by mechanics, and they did all the undercarriage and all the stuff in the chassis and all that. And then they put a thing on it. You know, bolt on at the end where you put some people and nobody ever thought about what it should look like it was about how it should operate. And that's what made Harley when he came along. He was like the the Steve Jobs of his generation he kept he wanted to put his look like what is it? What is it supposed to be? What is it? You know, what does it say about the person? How how do you go from writing I'm dying up here to to this book? And then you have one about Anheuser-Busch. How do you have this kind of range? This kind of diverse says, I'm dying up here. In Henry was Jim Carey get hold of you. Or how does that? How does that work? When I was the when I was a cub reporter is just starting. out there. I had an editor who was a very sharp guy. And he was he was he all these young comics coming into town. And there was something going on there. And he he called me and in his office. And he said he feels like these kids that are showing up and working down here on the strip that something new going on feels like Greenwich Village in the sixties. So would you like to be on our Dur comedy beat for us? This is a major American newspaper signing young kid to do you know, I was young. But I was the same age as all the comics where I had just arrived in town. So I got to I got the job of lifetime. My job was to go down there. Hang around with these young people coming into town. Find out what they're all about. And who the next, Freddie prince was going to be? So I got to meet Letterman Leno all those guys before anyone outside of the small community of comic share knew who they were. And they sort of all became famous while I was the middle of reporting on it. So it was a great magical time resistant to you initially like interloper, you know, what I mean? Not at all. I mean, you know, they were here in town. I was the Los Angeles Times this was concerned. You know, they were and we got along because we were all from the midwest or someplace else, you have a you have a good Andy Kaufman story. We'll we'll say this half the show brought to you by blue apron taymor about them in a second blue apron dot com. So I haven't I have dot com. Yeah. I have a number of Andy was amazing. I mean, I think I did the first major newspaper, big takeout on Andy. And we had a time to set up to near view. And and he called me up two nights before like, an eight o'clock at night, my house and just hang this. Andy can I come over? Okay. So he shows up ten minutes later my house, and he's got a suitcase full of stuff like vaudeville suitcase. And he proceeds to go and get dressed up in various, different stage outfits and actors in tire hope show on my patio. You know in pantomime, you know, and change into his wrestling outfit. And then he wanted to wrestle my my eight one fragment wife, and it was just bizarre. You know, what you gotta go with it. Right. So know, so yeah, did I I looked back on some of these guys? Like, it's like when you hear these stories about like here. Steve McQueen stories, you know, and people are like sitting around going. Well, he didn't suffer fools. I mean, you came up to him onset you game diet coke. And it was warm punch. You. Swing at you. And I was like I think that's a sociopathic do fag. Like, he didn't take any gruff from anybody. They were rewriting them on. He's awesome pages. Didn't like and he won right after that rider, man. He was throwing punches at a tire iron is. And it's like, yeah. That means he's a bad guy. But he was he was he was cool. But he's punching. It is if you're you're right. It's kind of antisocial big head. But so Andy Kaufman, you hear all the great stories and great great stories at any go, but he's just kind of nutty sociopath. Or is he super cool guy? Or is. He what is he never thought is cool. And it was fascinating. What he was really interesting. He was he was he was doing some sort of live theatre his own thing that that there was no template for it. That anybody did I tell you the one thing the one on I insisted in order to do the story. I said, okay. And I talked to manage said you have to see and talk to interview Tony Clifton who was his alter ego that he refused to acknowledge existed. So they agreed. And so Tony Clifton met me at this sleazy hotel down on Sunset Boulevard with full hookers. And we went out to have some drinks together. And Andy would not break character. No, ma'am. What happened? He picked up a young girl in a bar. You know, and I couldn't believe anybody going because you just being awful. I thought I thought he's gonna get us killed and but a woman did go home with him to the motel. I bailed at that point. I thought that you know, I've taken new journalism as far as and you take it. Well, here's an Andy Kaufman question than. If you knew him, but in the saying, you're friends with them today, and he just called and said you wanna go out to lunch. Would you do it? Or would you go? Enough energy for whatever. I don't know the answer to that. Because I didn't spend that much time with him. But yeah, I could see both sides of that. You wanna see what's he gonna do next? I know that his friends used to go down to the bagel place where he operated and have lunch. Just to watch him take off and start doing stuff because he would do things they all the people in the restaurant and people who work there just thought he's a guy, but his transit come in. They order, and then Andy would do some weird thing and start doing some street the thing and nobody else would figure out and they would all laugh run out. So they he entertained people. I mean, he was just weird shit. There's just no doubt about it. I mean there was you know, he was the weirdest guy was but kinda sweet. I mean, you know, the feel like the movie man man via like that captured it that was eerily era. Yeah. I felt that way. Yeah. Yeah. No. That was that was Andy Carey you get nominated for that famously navy did not, and if you ever seen the documentary came out recently, Jim and Andy on comfortable, but why? Nomination. I feel I felt that way about vow Kilmer Jim Morrison like when you just become that human being why no love from. Nominated that year was interesting who was like tough competition or also Jim Carey was to a lot of critics or a lot of people in the industry. He's ace Ventura he he's trying too hard to be a serious actor in. There is I get it. But playing the role of the grandpa or the role of the neighbor the role of the gym coach the box, and coaches, that's one thing, but becoming somebody that were familiar with like, we know Andy Kaufman, there's we've all seen SNL. We've all seen the bits. We know him. Well, when you physically and spiritually literally become that person. So that we can't tell the difference. That my friend is acting, you know, mount of blowing Harvey Weinstein, whatever recreate that. Yes. At my right, Gina. On the nation. I don't know who won. And who else is now because I've I feel like we're going to be a little bit angry. And when we find out who else was nominated find it out. Let's see Russel Crowe the insider, Sean Penn sweet and lowdown because he sung Kevin Spacey, American Beauty, Richard Farnsworth. That was a great movie grip form straight story, Denzel Washington. Heavy hitters. Yeah. Coming. I mean, Denzel Washington is becoming played Rubin. Hurricane carter. But nobody knew what Rubin. Hurricane Carter sounded like with word for Andy Kaufman. We know exactly what he sounds the reasons I laid out he's he's still ace Ventura to people will you write to about Jim Morrison. I mean, Val Kilmer that was that was incredible. We're talk about this more, Bollywood, Hindi and rats. Oh. All right. Let me tell you about. Blue apron farm, fresh preportion ingredients step by step recipes delivered right to your door. Let blue apron do the meal prep dinner and as little as twenty minutes. This is the best. I open the blue apron box pop out three shiny. Possibilities and I ponder and ponder.

You can try your first three meals for free at blue apron dot com slash Adam. Right. I don't even like Jim Carrey. But that's an outrage that he was not nominated and that that group and the other people, I'm sure did a wonderful job. But this is a good. Acting and you must become the other person's like a two part. I'll do higher standard for sure. Yes. You would know if he didn't. And he became him to the point where I don't know if you woke me up and said, which performance are you watching an actual one or Jim Andy Kaufman, or Jim, I wouldn't even know. And that that's amazing. Yeah. When when people say any Kaufman, Jim Carey's image pops in my mind before Andy Kaufman stuff. Yes. But Jim Morrison and vowed Kim Val Kilmer was nominated but didn't win. He was nine hundred. I didn't even know if he's nominated. But if not the essence of acting is you becoming this other human being in knocking it out of the ballpark. It drives me nuts. All right. So and I'm always still angry at what's his name from Lomas sunshine because Allen are canal in arkan- because he's got fucking Oscar for that piece of shit performance. Anyway, let's not live in the past. He did nothing. Nothing. Fuck back VW, boss one of those life. Time achieve it's not living. That was passed. Do. That's all. You're right. But we can't we have to have an toward the toward the future. All right. Let's see. We got the news Speaking of acting being directing John singleton and me this picture of him and willy t ribs when he met with I told you John single then met with willy t Ribbs to work on story. That's based on my documentary. Uppity. And I didn't wanna share the picture because I didn't know we wanted to put it out there. He just it. Just scrammed Akram went on this for a year. And he's just put it up there. And in the caption, the reverence he has for willy t Ribbs is really amazing. Well, what's it says willy t Ribbs? Remember that name not every day. You get to be in the presence of a legend. This man broke the barrier on the race track Formula Ford first black man to win series and England formula land first black man to racing series transam first black man to win a race twice series one or up when eighteen races IMSA first black man to win a race to time driver of the year IndyCar. I mean, it just goes on and on and on. Yes. So singleton is working on the willy t Ribbs story. So cool. Yeah. It'd be nice. We actually put them together. And it'd be nice if Showtime could've bought the plane ticket to get him out here from Austin instead of us, but. Finger how life works you just pay for everything and hopefully get paid one day. All right. We got Bill here. So Harley Earl what was his reign? What when did he start? When did he finished? He started with GM and twenty six he had been working on designing bodies fancy car by nineteen nineteen twenty six people may remember campaign from several years ago where sort of the the ghost of Harley Earl came back to work with new GM product price or whatever it was like they do now with the dodge brothers. But go ahead. Well, he'd been he'd been customizing car bodies for silent film stars and GM heard about him. And they had this idea they wanted to compete with Ford, and they couldn't on on numbers for just dominate that sixty percent of the market, and they had this idea of maybe if we change to more often how they look because Henry Ford's idea was to build a car that got union shit from one place to another is. Quickly as cheaply as possible. And that's all it was totally till Terry. And he didn't think it needs to be improved. So jam came up with the idea of we'll make it look better. Maybe they'll and they hired Harley because they heard from you know, and he was making these fantastic colored cars for these impossibly rich young stars. And so they came out, and they look what he did what he did. And they said, wow, he designed the whole body. Didn't stick something on the end. He started with how it looked not with how it ran. They all ran. And then he what he did was he invented the system. Through terrorizing people, and forcing his will and people, and he was this giant stuttering crazy guy dressed like a peacock. He invented the system whereby GM became the first company that could change the look of its cars every year every car every year, and every third year have them dramatically different and be able to do that in a way that didn't cause them to shut down their factories the cost of one hundred hundred million dollars, and that took GM from being ten percent of the market to fifty five, and they became the most powerful corporation the world because of that the people may not realize that back in the day. You would get a car from Duisenberg or something if you're rich, and then you'd have the coach Bill like you'd have the body built for the car. Sometimes you could get you know, the the frame that the. The running gear all the thing the car, but no body, and then you take into a custom body guy, and he build you a custom body as we always sort of joke about. No one does anymore. Everyone just, you know, Leonardo to drives a white Prius. But back in the day. He would have rich guys got themselves. Custom cars made you take it to a guy and go, you know, die. Dial it in George barris did that up until the seventies age when you see some of the crazy he built the munsters mobile. He built the batmobile. He built all those cars for the TV shows, the the Monkees you got a car, you did a TV show, you gotta custom car. But then if you're on the the show had a car, but if you're on the show, you got brought him your car, and he ate your own car to it was kind of kooky. Well Harley did some of that he had hit one for Tom mix. They designed Sal right into the hood for for the guy who was a star of Wells Fargo, the TV show had had a they had a car where the interiors up out. Outfitted with rifles, and pistols and stuff like to ride in the car with guns mounted you know, and horns and all kinds of western. That's what he did. He did specialty cars dream cars. I I went to before barris die. Okay. But I almost gonna warn you got a gun. Here's frigging Chester Seventy-three built in the well, if you look at the Cadillac max patta from new dis famously the western outfitters place, if you could picture the same for Nando valley and picture the Cadillac from new western apparel on lankershim in the middle of what is now. No, he had guns rifles and stuff all over back when people like. When gas with twenty one cents a gallon. She just mount tons and stuff. I would Longhorn I would like to practical the practical. Yeah, it's a Cadillac with a bunch of pissed splashy era dynamic, right? It's back again gas was cheap. We had nothing but time. But that's so Harley was there until when 'til fifty eight and then what happened retire? Yeah. He retired and so to live happily ever after. And there was there was sort of revolt right toward the end because he he took fins to the height. Heightened and became a big competition out fin the other in Chrysler eventually won that and the ultimate Finn was the fifty nine Cadillac with right? Like it was above the above the roof. It wasn't. But it looked like. And so there was sort of a black backlash, and and and his designers kind of you know, mutinied over the fifty eight that he was doing and they and he changed him in the middle. And he said, okay. It's kinda my time to go. So he weird culture. Right. Yeah. Fins on a car become a thing. And then there's a fin war where everyone is trying to outdo the other manufacturer. And how big this useless piece of metal on the back of the car? Could be this weird. And then it completely goes away. Nobody cares about fins. And they were and that was the Finn that ended all fifty nine Cadillac Finn. But it is the single image. If you see image of that car. Everyone knows that's the nineteen fifties. Yeah. I mean. I mean, look at that amazing piece of metal. Fifty the future would look like, right? Stories of kids being impaled on those while they're playing baseball in the streets up like that. All right, Gina. Let's see. Let me tell you about Castrol edge. And we'll get to some news heat friction viscosity breakdown man hurt the performance up to ten percent. You're going to get that caddy with the fins, and let's get some Castrol edge engineered with fluid. Titanium technology physically transforms to be stronger and her pressure helps fight friction and deliver maximum levels from your car three times times times stronger against scarcity breakdown and leading oils, Castrol edge everyone. All right, Gina. How about we do some news? Let's do it. All those crazy. Gene. The news with Gina grad question. Are you familiar with a former boxer named Mario mellow yellow? Well, he didn't have a very mellow mellow mellow mellow. Yeah. You're probably right. He didn't have a super luxurious boxing career. But he was a professional boxer and he died on Sunday in a croissant. Eating contest, according to TMZ. So he's fifty six and he was one of several participants competing in the event in Buenos RA's. He was into the third croissant. He started choke several men rushed to his aid perform the Heimlich maneuver. But they couldn't dislodge this blockage. He was whisked away the ambulance. He was dead on arrival. According to reports there did not appear to be any train medical professionals hired for the event. Now, if if he rings a bell at all he had a professional record of twenty one nine he challenged light heavyweight champion Michael Moore in nineteen ninety but lost in the first round. Michael Moore was the light heavyweight champ who became the heavyweight champ who was famously knocked out by George Foreman. So he was a he was like an unlikely winner. There's there's great footage of teddy. Atlas in his corner when Michael Moore fought Vander Holyfield to take the heavyweight championship teddy. Atlas who by the way, I love that guy. He's so passionate about everything. There's footage of him in a corner going, you're blowing it son, you're blowing. I've be lying to didn't tell you at this. This your chance at the heavyweight strap and your like teddy atlas like in his face going ballistic on him. He goes out there. He becomes the heavyweight champ takes it away from holy field. And then when George Foreman comes back when George warm and couldn't move, very good. Took all this punches just relying at some point just near the NFL form. Just lands one of those right hands and drops more down. I dunno type in Michael Moore. Teddy atlas corner looking Mike or something like that. Hey, anytime, you can fight for the championship. Even if you lose in the first round. But by the way, I get I get choking on a bagel or a hydroxy, but a light. Fluffer son. So innocuous viz. Yeah. About that. San's? Yeah. So this is gross. But everyone's talking about it. So we're just gonna go head first. And then move on delta airline passenger claims he was forced to sit in feces or MRs flight when he complained about the mess on his seat, according to the Daily Mail. Matthew me Hans said he noticed the smell as soon as he got near a seat on the plane. He raised the question to the cabin crew. But instead of helping him clean the step allegedly dams paper towels and a few minutes, your bottles of Bombay sapphire until to clean it up himself. I I will say come in. I I appreciate that. Because when I worked at the flask liquor store when I was like sixteen carrying a big hand truck with cases, or whatever. And I knocked over a case of gin, and it broke and spread out all of the floor. And it's like it, smells like cleaning fluid. Like, if you're thinking of something to us don't use Yeager Meister, if you wanna clean use Jin them thinking pine juniper, berries this. It's clear. It's. Got a lot of alcohol, and it's it's good for what else? Yeah. At that point. I would've drank Jan and ask for a little pine Sol Lysol. Well, they told him to clean it up. He was still to sit down or get off the flight of the delta flight from Atlanta to Miami. He got off the plane to speak with the manager. And according to an interview he did with local news outlet. This was the response. Beginning side. What's your problem? And it was just you know, I had to step back for a moment and say. You do not want to be one of these people that you see on the news getting kicked off a flight. Because really it's a every amount of patients that I had just to keep cool while and covered in feces. So passengers were forced to lay a blanket over it and endure this Mel for the two hour flight, not let the not not fucking bitches with the crazy dogs on the fucking plane. How about that? How about that? How about we just fucking do? We don't let any more nut jobs or fucking dogs on the plane. How about yeah. How many examples do we need? I walked election project out poop all over the place. It's insane. It's insane. Of course, it can only go this direction. These people are nuts. I say bitches, I mean, mostly bitches there too. No, no more. You can't travel your dog. How about that take the fucking train cheeses cry? They weren't sure what what origin the feces had at first. They told him that it was a big German shepherd. Then he was told it was an older man who got sick on the plane. And then finally he was told it was a cute little golden retriever tonight. How many times I yelled about this? How else can this go any other way your dog is trapped in a place and can't use the bathroom? It can only shit on the carpet. And if shit's the later your dog has whatever the one ice on LAX had diarrhea or whatever then that's the way. This is going to go down. How could it go any other way the end result of an equation that we all saw coming? Did you? Michael moore. He got the teddy. Atlas talking to them in the corner. Yeah, here's one here's one of. Jay, I want to be satisfied with. Go in there. Doing what we trained to? Kind of. To be heavyweight champion doing keep going to cry because of that winning teddy. Atlas in Sydney. Anymore? Back them up. Well, great stuff. See? Well minutes. Tell you. You don't want you to try afterwards gonna cry afterwards because? Next bite instead of this fight. Thirty five. And Michael Moore when I needed analysts in the car when I still in it to go blowing it and they'll lumber truck was coming up. Mojo on your welcome back in this car because I'm just go go go just go come on. But teddy atlas, and I've Elidio I wanna travel that guy. Right. Yeah. Agean as he knows what buttons to push for what people would even advice another fighter. You know? It's probably a little intense.

He's you bitch over there. The sound berries. Take you want that how great is steady at this. So he L more blowing it he was going to cry. And then Michael Moore went out and got the heavyweight championship puffed up light heavyweight in Michael Moore before they had this super click. Heavyweight you know, guys they have been Drago. I feel like you just picked up some parenting tips. Mr. teddy up, I would like, you know, instead of fucking dolls pull the string. The farmer says MU. Mu teddy.

Yeah. So this is more common back from the eighth round and teddy sitting in his stool shit. Shit. You're gonna cry. You get away with that night's counselor minister, they're all things I would like to see involved in. No. This moment to give myself some credit because you just brought up the guy had never heard of shoukd on a croissant. And it brought my all the way to teddy. Thank you for that. You're welcome. Thank you. Well, Pamela Anderson has no desire to join the metoo movement. According to her recent interview on the Australian edition of sixty minutes. I just let her speak the actress explained wife third way feminism the clock goes back isn't firmer. Here we go third way. Feminism wait, what's third way feminism? Well, I would imagine I should've I should've googled it. But I would imagine it's, you know, Suffragettes, you know, the right to vote, and then the sixties women's liberation and now we're in the third wave of. Yeah. See I got says. Yes, here we go. I think this feminism can go too, far, I'm a feminist. But I think that his third way feminism is is a bore. I think it paralyzes men. I think that this meeting movement is a bit too much for me on sorry. Probably get killed for saying that my mother taught me don't go to a hotel with a stranger of someone answers the door in a bathrobe, and it's supposed to be a business meeting. Maybe I should go with somebody else. I think that something's just common sense. Or if you go in get the job. I'm canadian. What is speak my mind. Okay. I'm sorry. I'm sorry. I'm not ready. How the ominous music work. Start having Zimmer score. Ours happens when Harvey. We do our magazine shows and barely scribe. We have like entertainment tonight. But that's not this. So they just put that in music stings. Wow. I don't know. I feel like if your news organization, you're not allowing that scale. Yeah. Put on that's go. Well Anderson has had her own experience with sexual abuse. She's detail before she was molested by a female babysitter as a child and suffered nonconsensual experiences with men early on the threat that the thing that no one wants to talk about because everyone's freaked out all the time as she is what drew always called a female female, impersonator said Marilyn Monroe thing. And there is when somebody is victimized at a young age it creates this sort of cartoonish sexuality about them. It's also a big component of this this metoo movement. There's a component of it that we don't talk about which is what took place years ago at home with stepdad. Bad both for whatever happened later on with Al Franken. There's just a there's a back story to a lot of this stuff that no one will ever discuss because everyone's going to get fired except for me. I just said it, but if you ever talked to about it, we've always known about it. We've always known that her Marilyn Monroe we talked about that kind of stuff. Like, the voice the affect the whole the whole thing. It's just their products of abuse molestation, whatever it took place years and years ago. And then it it this is how it manifests itself. All right. Well, let's talk to listen to pay him Anderson about anything anymore or ever like I just feel like a few specific subjects, but not you know, how why does Tommy Lee's girthy Lou long? Like, what are you waiting? Why we have such a weird society? She didn't do anything. She's done nothing. She has no regional barbed wire. She has very good fill. Right. But why do we add why the comment I feel the same way with sports stars? And whoever like really, what would we would? We why we want to know what pay has to say we shouldn't have ever wanted to know what? Yeah. We're looking at right. Okay. When she was twenty eight maybe woman what she had to say. But even that's under a false pretense because it's not like because you have good bone structure. Good brain. Powerful thought. I don't know what we do. Why do we wanna hear what by nature we wanna look at her not hear what she has to say. I just don't we're we have a weird thing with celebrities in general. I was gonna say why even when they go stumper tell you who to vote for tell you what to do or whatever why they're there because they're good looking and they parent other people who are smart who do have something to say picture the next decade or two when when we have the Kim Kardashians opinion or the third card asking depending on the latest movement lettuce thing the the new story. It's like, well, she's our only chance for prison reform. So she might. But this this this is this will continue to happen more. So this will become more. So in the years, the housewives opinion on the next movement, right? Well, let's let's swing the other way. This is a really cool story. You know, the New York marathon happened over the weekend. And there's always big news coming out of there. But I don't know if you heard about Hannah gov ios so after falling a hundred and fifty feet off a cliff and Thailand while she was trying to escape a rapist in two thousand sixteen. She never thought she'd walk it again. But this year, she completed the New York City marathon, I'll just show you little bit while I'm talking so this is coming up to the finish line with to you know, sort of athletic crutches twenty five years old from queens. She's partially paralyzed completed twenty six point two miles on crutches. Was she running from, rapists? All explain it a second. Yeah. Yeah. Maybe it took eleven hours twenty minutes and thirty two seconds to complete the marathon. Even though she finished long after everybody else was a huge crowd of the finish line. So the story of how this happened it's a little gruesome, but it it should be told. She was travelling to Thailand a man offered her directions and let her into the jungle and attacked her. She fought back. He ranches a lifelong runner all through high school and everything she knew she had the speed to a scape, but in the darkness. She couldn't see she was at the edge of a cliff fell off she tumbled the height of a fifteen story building. She hit her head on the way down fracture spine when she landed at the bottom the guy who was chasing her found her and assaulted her when she's paralyzed at the bottom of this review. Well, it says assaulted whatever probably hours after her. Well, look, just kicked her. Now. The worst person I I'm just reading the story. Oilers so sexually fide. Oh, this person in the world. Yeah. He's oh. You're gonna love how it ends though. Very unsatisfying. Finally, she was found she was taking the hospital her tax he'd MiFID what he'd done and so he got a nice five year prison term. So I'm sure he'll be out helping himself to hurting other people and to be fair. Thai. Prisons are sort of dog years. Terms of US prisons five years in a Thai prison is doing like years. You're right. It took eleven hours and twenty minutes. She did it on crutches. She did the entire marathon money for spine armpits of so calloused well trained. Yeah. Well, she she wasn't on those questions shoes on what she she kind of. She has a photo. Well, let's show the clipping swertz. He was on crutches. But either what you know what I'm saying. That's gotta be rough on the joints. Yeah. Absolutely. She said her yellow before. Before she she broke bunch of them while training sheet, they had to keep sort of modifying them, and I've never done anything for eleven hours. And this is the most impressive thing I've ever seen you probably slept. Her levin. That's true. That's true. I'd like to sit around with her and like in argue like. Well, we ordered the Chinese food, but just have grub drop it off. We shouldn't have to go pick it up. Should we like what an inspiration? What a motivation to bring her story. I'd like to bring her and teddy atlas over to my house. This yell it sit there and rack on the head with a crutch go pay attention could be a little inet as well. Whack him in the head in an atlas blowing blowing it son, you're blowing it whack them again in the head. Good daddy's ranchos make you rich back she'd whack them with other media think this is his bed. Ellison is bed. What does which places? That s that's great. He's better than all of us. Yeah. Far better. She is. But the guy who assaulted her after going down that hill one hundred fifteen hundred fifty feet is right up there with the guy shot Ray Caruso girlfriend when she was nine months pregnant, right? Like in the I'll see you and. Percent. The one percent of people. Yeah. So you know, you know, they had that famous. I don't know. I always screw it up. Senator supreme court whatever when he said when it comes to pornography. I'll know when I see it. I feel that way about the death penalty. Look, I don't wanna straight across port black guy accused of gun went off when he's trying to rob a liquor store. Whatever death penalty all handle it. I'll know it when I see it. Maybe. Well, she didn't kill her. Yeah. He's going down the aisle. No known all put him up throw him that pop. That's good. That'd be great. Thank you, just come to me the broad strokes. You did it took me about eighty seconds made it he's made it to the chair in my world. And again, not interested in whether she survived or finished a marathon or anything. I just got a little glimpse in your wiring enough. Right. All right. Let me tell you about guy co everyone's got to do list. How 'bout yet save hundreds of dollars car insurance? And you don't have to go anywhere. Go to your computer, geiko dot com. Fifteen minutes could be saving fifteen percent or more on your auto insurance. Put that extra money in your pocket. It'll be the most rewarding thing you do all day at geiko that is guy code dot com. All right. Let's do one more. Okay. Well, you know since we're on the subject. Of of people dying and punishment might as well do this story now and get your take on it and hold on. What's the record? These guys. Do the guys do the marathon in the wheelchairs, but they're the trikes and these guys go nuts, and they seem to finish those things much faster than the Kenyans do. I'm a fan of motor sports in motorsports. They had wait to vehicle like if one cars dominating and a series too, much, they'll start restricting air intakes start adding weight to the car and so on and so forth. My feeling is. It's a marathon. I'm American and I want a Kenya finishing. I that's the way I was raised. And these guys these guys with their wheelchairs guy finish in an hour and eighteen minutes full hour before the Kenyan woman even got there. Wow. Now, he's wearing his state of the art slick goals and kevlar helmet and everything stress, and it's one see I don't like I want to add some weight to that dude's trike. Okay. Peanut butter on the wheel whatever it is slow down be marshmallow when one parody now and excitement and again. You watch all that racing. They're all going the same. They're all doing the same thing f one NASCAR everything they just start they'll tweak everything until everyone's like the same speed. And then you have the most exciting races ever guys at an hour.

Just trying to underwrite that life terrific. Yeah. Brandy Glanville was with the LeBlanc and Schwimmer unclear. Whether it was the same evening. David Schwimmer, by the way, I said unclear which means I say it was at the same time in the question yadda crime. Now is it a crime to ask a question? David Schwimmer has there's a couple names on here that are going to delight you, and you you tell me many driver Natalie Imbruglia, IMB ruga, I say fast, but I find her to be incredibly fetching Minnie driver. There's a handful of people who I think got where they are because of their name. And I think many driver is I I don't I never even thought many driver. I've found she's she's she's attractive, but she's not beautiful. And I think the name like if her. Her name is Gertrud boil Stein. I don't feel like she'd be nearly as popular as their name was Minnie driver. But then some of my favorites with Matthew Perry, Ryan and shacks favorite starlet piper. Parapet piper. You know what I mean? Wait Meg Ryan going from grind piper. That ram. And they had their grim Lauren Graham, and Heather Graham, oh, my God not clear it was the same night. But listen, here's what I do after. I'm done betting. Elizabeth Hurley, I do that drop the mic thing with my dick. The second. I'm done with Elizabeth Hurley, and I say second that's how we would measure my time with Elizabeth especially twenty nine year old Elizabeth Hurley, I just hold my dick out, I drop it and I walk off stage. And you hear all the feedback and river it would be. Yeah. I don't think it would be one of those slow claps either. It would be uproar instantaneous. I do the when I'm done. I do the dick drop, and I leave and that's it. No encore. No coming back. Can you imagine Matthew Perry? What was what he must be? One charming fella. Amanda peet. Yes mean believe again, Laura Flynn Boyle, you got to you must you must picture now. Look, many of these conquests are going on in the nineties, and let's try not to be too double standard here here or. Cruel but women in their forties in their fifties. Are not aesthetically what they were twenty four twenty seven when you're talking about a lower Flynn Boyle, Julia Roberts. He has me. I mean boil when she was twenty five was a visually and aesthetically had to be one of the strongest looking people on on the planet. Going to be even handed. Matthew Perry's no prize in two thousand eighteen if you've seen photographs of right, right? But I hear you're going. I mean, Elizabeth Hurley there's just nothing better than your circa. I hear you got to even go back maybe even earlier than than Austin powers, Elizabeth Hurley. Yes, even but even as she started merges a star when she did that picture bedeviled. I think is what it was called with Brennan Frazier. I mean, she's yes, she's as lovely creature. Is there is and an English accent? Yeah. I don't I don't need that as much. You know, blonde hair is exotic to me look at me. I'm swarthy people say don't you like exotic looking women? Yeah. Blonde is exotic does not hurt. And of course, Jennifer Aniston on the list. Jennifer Capri Audie on the list tennis player. That's right. Rachel done. She the one from the Jeff bridges, James woods picture. What was all the right? And not all the right moves. The Phil Collins did the the sound that the no that's not her talking about the Raelian woman with short hair. She was in also dead men. Don't wear plaid. She that. That was Elizabeth. I think I think it was a Rachel was a Rachel Rachel. I don't think it's Rachel done. There's two women that get me confused. There's the there's the against all odds, who's an absolute beauty. And then there is the weird science. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Who's in absolute beauty, and they're different. But were there at the same time this suggests that Rachel Don was just the fashion student, and maybe not someone notable. Okay. Yeah. Well, it's remarkable work all the way around this. I like I said last time mash probably doesn't have such a list. Cheers, probably doesn't have such a list. Now, though, you know, what though you know, what I'm just gonna just play the game that you have thrown out here. Now think about cheers Ted Danson plus not Shelley long, but you have to throw in kearse the alley. Well, she was when she married in real life to John Travolta, am I thinking of the movie with the thinking of the movie? Okay. But okay, I think she has had no shortage of lovers now. Also throw in Woody Harrelson now. Now, you're getting somewhere norm and cliff down, you know, probably long how about coach season one. Got around pretty good. You know, she is my my alley. What we're talking about from now, I can't think of her. Senator name sorry. From from cheers just mentioned to me. Not alley mcbeal. Not Allie McGraw. All right. Let me tell you. I got memory trouble. I got a theory. Well, I screwed us up with Allie. First name segma- Kirstie alley. Kirstie alley. No one can ever talk me out of this shack is right with me on this. The women who get the eating disorders are the ones who put on weight, and they see their head gets lollipop and they us have eating disorders because they see themselves on camera and the camera obviously adds weight. They say the myth, or whatever, you know. They're stupid stuff out there like oh. After Chinese food now or later, you're hungry again. But that's nonsense I load up on Chinese food. I go home. I take a dump I fall asleep. I don't know how. Summit doors when for Janney thing where the camera ads, whatever. Yes, you go do a hit on Bill O'Reilly. You have the camera sit in the face. You sit down on the chair, and you talking realize your head is taking up the entire. I've never in asked onto that program. I don't know. Well, your hey, get your head does grow. Now. Kirstie alley. Her head never grew. No matter how big the rest of her body. Her head never grew. She was one of these people. And I hate these people you see him every once in a while men and women big spare tire around the winter. And you're looking at the guy's head the as a tight chin and head right? So her head never changed. If she kept putting weight on. She kept seeing yourself. You're putting on billowy bigger, whatever ended up jazzing more like a gypsy every time she did panel on Kimmel or Leno or whatever. But she would see your head and it looked fine. She was able just to pack on the weight and never take a second. You see the big double chin you go. We're gonna take it easy on the pasta. That's what happened. That's why Kirsty was able you see curse the fit as a fiddle. And then you see your forty pounds heavier and her head didn't change. You're right about that. Sound? It sounds spot on. I will I can't now what was the movie with Tom Selleck. And gene Simmons heads in baby. It was it was in the near future. Runaway. Oh, you look that up. You absolutely.

The ultimate guide to going broke by James altar of James alter dot com. I was so happy in nineteen ninety five I was preemption, I'd get into work at ten AM sneak out around four PM I had a one room apartment. And my only piece of furniture was a foam mattress, it was summer. And I had no air conditioning. I had no sheets for the mattress. So by morning every day. All of my sweat would be absorbed into the foam of the mattress, if I woke up in the middle of the night, and went to the bathroom, the roaches would scurry away and I'd hear the click, click click. I leave work at four PM and go play backgammon all night with my friends at Stein way. Billiards in a story, I had a crush on a waitress and would write notes on two dollar bills. When I paid for my meals, I was creepy, and she never responded. It was the best time in my life. I never saw any of these people ever again. I started a business. I started to sell my friendship to the highest bidder. My clients clients don't care about your product or service. They can't tell the difference between you or your competitors. So I got. Every client for my first business by selling my friendship and bribery. But that's another story I was scared all the time. What if I couldn't make payroll, what if our biggest clients realized, I was at total fraud, and fired me. What if my key employees quit? What if my partners were talking behind my back, I had no confidence? I thought I had to fool everyone all of the time in order for them to like me. I started spending less time on the things I loved in order to spend more time on the things I hated that is the worst kind of spending, and then the second worst selling my friendship for money, all of my friendships were based on money all my success came from a lack of confidence. That's a bad start. Then I made tens of millions of dollars cash. Lost it made it again lost it made it again. Got divorced. Lost my home lost my money, made it again lost. It learned a lot too much. I wish I hadn't learned so much I spent twenty. A years going broke over and over again. I hope it doesn't happen again. I can't take it anymore. The ultimate guide to going broke a thinking you are smart. Every day I wake up and say, I am stupid. Some people call it beginner's mind as if to fool themselves. But I know the truth whenever I think I'm smart. I lose money whenever I think I'm stupid. I get curious. I get help. I help others and I make money stupidity is a superpower. When you use it, right. Be value. Not understanding, how to value something studying similar deals. Similar sales at cetera. Everything has evalu-, even if it's intangible come up with a formula for valuing things even time. See volatility not understanding the volatility of income streams, even a stable salary is not so stable but business or investment income is filled with uncertainty, and friendships and love can be vol. Well as well. D- leaks. Bad relationships alcohol addictions need for validation, etc. These will always cost more time and money than one thinks every day today, I have to be aware of my leaks. Keep them in check e ego, the best way to make money save money, and be a good person is to start off the day saying, I'm stupid. I know nothing e one delusion not knowing where your money is, and where it's going setting aside, for taxes, etc. F- spending. For example, if you have a million dollars and can make a safe five percent on your money. Why spend ten percent on a car when you can spend a point five percent on Uber per year? People spend on big items houses, colleges car, etc. And then they tried to save by not going to Starbucks, don't let the myths of society rule. You're spending g not understanding risk every investment. And every bet must have an unfair advantage, even buffet refuses to bet a dollar on a golf game. Because as he says, I don't wanna break discipline good investors. Don't take risk. They mitigate risk good. Entrepreneurs don't take risk. They mitigate risk success is about going where others perceive risk. But you learn to reduce it each diversification. Not just in stocks, but in all investments stocks private deals loans at cetera and even how you invest, your time all work and no play. I being. Every day, help others make money or achieve their goals. Even one to two helps per day adds up to seven hundred thirty a year which adds up to a lot of people who want to give you unfair advantages back when you need it, Jay. Not looking at the worst case divorce disease depression, business failure, economic cycles. A one year deal might turn into a five year deal. A trend might not work out at cetera eighty percent of the time. The worst case happens deal with it k- position size people don't believe me when I say this, but the less you invest the more you'll make sleeping well with less anxieties the best investment, you can make for me. The smaller, I invest the less, I have to think about an investment, which means I can let it ride. The key to wealth is leading good investments ride for years. But you can only do this. If you start off very, very small L lone wolf lone wolves are failures thinking. If I do this deal on my own without sharing it with others a win bigger. You always want to invest with more people, and particularly people smarter than you m working with losers. It took me twenty years of trial and error to learn the difference. I'm ninety percent of the way there. But still learning every day, this is an important rule. Losers will never make money or have a good deal winners make money over the long run, only stick with the winners. The worst are sore losers show me a sore loser. And I'll show you a loser an losers part to a loser is someone who blames others is a victim blames. The economy blames a partner has lots of bad relationships shoes. You glimpses of poor integrity, because you will eventually see that aimed at you gossips about others because, to others, they are gossiping about, you doesn't know how to value risk thinks entrepreneurship is about risk has lots of accidents, Mike car accidents getting mugged late for me. Meetings because of traffic, etc. And doesn't return calls. Oh, losers part three can a loser change. Yeah. I've always had some elements of winner and many elements of loser. I've had to work on each thing, and I'm still working on it, but I try to make up for it by helping as many people as possible. So I learn how to provide value. But here's the thing losers can change. But you can't change a loser focus on audience, selection and not audience development p focusing on outcomes is pathway to failure. People say make a goal and then go for it. This is B S advice as you get better at something as your process. Improves you, learn more, which means goals and outcomes change focus on getting one percent, better each day and outcomes will then happen. Q envy admire success. So you learn to a cabbie, Larry, when you compare you despair. I can count ten people right now who used? To be close to me, who now hate me, it bothers me that they hate me. I wonder I always help them now. They hate me this anxiety. I feel is almost as bad as envy. It's like reverse envy. I need to stop and I'm working on it. I have too much of a need for everyone to like me are fear versus growth, making fear decisions instead of growth decisions, for example, saying yes to something, you don't want to do because you're afraid, you'll lose an opportunity. If you say, no bonus s not buying piece people say, money buys freedom, but then they get more stressed. The more money they have make sure when you have money to respect it take the downtime, you've earned look at the sky, and take a deep breath. Think about nothing if you don't respect money. It won't respect you. I haven't been happy since nineteen ninety five until now it's twenty nineteen and I'm actually happy again, for the most part. It's an everyday battle. I'm a dick. To being human.

The College Years: Stories about leaving home for university

"<music> science story n._y._u. Scientists they thought well figured get it out. It was that golden moment because science was on my side. Everybody welcome to the story collider where we bring you true personal stories about science. I'm your host aaron barker argonne and this week we present story collider the college years. It's that time of year again. Just over twenty million students are entering american colleges colleges and universities the school year and according to a poll by seventeen magazine and the college board stem focused majors are the most popular with this year's incoming class so there could be millions of people out there just starting the experience that will someday be the story they tell the story glider. I'm excited for that also a little worried for them not to be too story worthy okay everyone. Today's stories are definitely story. Worthy and i'm excited to share them with you. Our first story is from kenny means. It was recorded in march twenty nineteen at the ready room in saint louis missouri the theme that night was moment of clarity. Uh arena allergies. Would you pick well. You don't know anything about marine biology so that's what that's how i found that out right. Nowhere near water is worrying so anyway anyway. I should know something right. 'cause i was at a similar. I'm sitting at the seminar. I'm seventeen years old and i i should have known something was this up because i was there with my dad and it was a week night and my dad. My dad never left the house during the week right he would work for general motors and he worked from from sixty two when he would come home and he'd be asleep by three p._m. And he was done but we were sitting at this seminar and there was nothing but this line of this was the early nineties so you don't really know how old the dude was. I think they were middle aged but they could have been between twenty three and like seventy. I don't now right wearing the shirts you get like target back then of mannequins and it was just like several degrees of tope nope they looked like drywall is what they look like but i'm sitting there and i'm looking at my dad and my dad has nothing but like hope nope light love his i because he really he really likes at this point. I don't know what's going on until they start talking about the university of missouri rolla and i'm thinking to myself. Oh my god. My dad wants me to go to engineering school and that's not compatible with how i know. Education works right right cause a little bit about me. When i went to high school i wasn't i always associated education with fear fear right because my dad but dad grew up in mississippi in the nineteen thirties in one thousand nine hundred forty s and came up to missouri as part of the great a migration right he came here after his mom came up here so education was also always very important him and but but it wasn't very important to me and in fact my placement exams in high school we had to fill out the scantron took this test in on the scantron i just made a jesus fish and as a true story right which makes sense because it was a jesuit high school so it's like who knows more about god digitization chasing naidoo evidently they don't because they are putting a bunch of remedial classes so that was my that was my high school. That was my my high school career right and my dad god bless him. He didn't go to high school. He didn't graduate from high school. Generally get a lot of formal education patience in his younger years but then he was always trying to help me with my homework which was the last person who should have been trying to helping with homework. Just imagine trying to help somebody somebody learn how to swim but you also don't know how to swim so it would just turn into these yelling matches our remember distinctly one time we try to help help me with my math homework and we got into a gigantic argument right because he used the phrase comparing apples to oranges and i told him you can compare those two pieces of fruit and that ended up with me crying and him yelling at me until he literally just went to sleep. Oh so anyway so i'm at this. I'm at the seminar fast forward. I have no options right. I'm not very are we good in school. I'm not going to get a scholarship. I know a state school the cheap so what i'll do without just apply for the university of missouri rolla and that i did in my senior year remember was right after i got home from school was the afternoon and i got a letter from raleigh saying that i got in somehow how by the grace of god i did but looking back on it i compare it to snow white getting the poison apple you know because i was screaming. Yeah man. I got into college. I got into the university missouri raleigh my head. I'm like oh shit. I don't know what i'm doing right. It's like at that moment like the same to curb your enthusiasm should come up and that's it directed by robert b. We eat and that's the end of my life. That's why i fucked up. There was even me right so i was really excited to go to college and go down to the university kerala and i'm meeting. These people and i realized then <hes> that i don't fit in here at all right because they all seem to know what they're doing. All seem like they want to be there and everything is going fine. Gene except i'm taking a intro to engineering class. It was just a survey class. That's all it was and i ended up getting a c. Class which should have made a point that i shouldn't have been down there right but i remember the stimulant taught the class was this guy who wore like a general pershing hat or pith helmet. I don't remember now. I'm trying to remember it but he worked for general. Pershing head had any like a duster. He was all those people that if if he came into the room and you'd be like for real dude. Are you serious. This is a real person right now and he was talking about. How tough engineering is i. I assume it was a weed out class. It was just let them know that hey this is what engineering is but i'm sitting there like man given the opportunity. I kick your ass right. I mean come on for real so ended up getting a c. class because i wanted just fall asleep in class all the time because i i wasn't drinking coffee then so but i'm struggling through. I'm struggling through these classes. I'm struggling through my first year in in our in college and then that year is over right and my grades were not that good but this is the thing he was the early nineties so so all you had to do which is blame things on the post office when your parents ask you where your grades were just i said i guess it's the post office main. Why don't they just go to school right. That's why they ironically. My mom worked for the post office so it was this was not what's going on right. Where's my robot them out so my sophomore year. It's the same thing things things are getting worse. I'm taking. I'm taking chemistry. Classes kim lab and i can't ask these people for help too proud to ask for help right <music> but also. I don't think these people want to give you help because they also expect you to know these things right. It's like most of the people down there would like if read it had their own college wjr that was the diversity missouri rolla at that point so again soft more year right is dong aw and my grades aren't any better and i'm thinking to myself well at some point. Somebody's going to find out what's going on and pull me out of here. My parents ask me for my report card in the same thing i said last year somehow how work this year and i don't wanna make it seem like my parents weren't diligent. They were right. I was just very adept at not telling the truth so i'm coming up on my junior year and i'm driving down to rollock register for classes like the weekend before classes start right driving down. Its role is only like an hour and a half way so i'm driving down there and again at this point. Migrates aren't brilliant that good. You know what i would tell you that but you'll have to ask my my report also getting that so drive down there and at this point. I need the school to get into every school at this point. You have to add you have to apply for school to get into if you want to continue going down here and i was like out of options so i think the environmental engineering school i just walked nothing nothing about environmental engineer i kind of walked into the building looking for the dane seeing if he would sign my paper to let me go here and so so i get a meeting with this dude and go into his office and he was a nice man. He's wearing a short sleeved shirt with tie. I'm not gonna hold that against you know we all make bad decisions in their lives and i can't really make that much and so i'm sitting sitting there and i'm waiting for him to sign the paper like every other dean did right except this time he looks at my grades and he looks at me and he's like why are you down here and normally i would say something to try to get out of the situation. Make up something but at this point nobody had ever asked me why am i down here and it was like a great weight had been lifted off my chest. Somebody had finally i said man this isn't for you and you should probably leave and now i had a reason to leave and so he says says he's like listen to me and this is what i'm gonna do. I'm going to sign this piece of paper so that you can come down here again for this semester sir but you don't come back here all right. I want you to promise me that you will not sign up for classes again and you don't come back down here and at first i felt bags that was rejected by entire school you know but but as i thought about it i was like finally you know i'm making you. I can make a decision now on what i wanna do. I hadn't thought that in my my life up to that point and so i went one more semester but jokes on him. I stayed down there another semester. Just living living in rolla missouri which is as bad as it sounds. I was just down like lifting weights finished hell but for who come on man really so so that that last semester right mmg comes and picks me up and we're driving back and we happened to get into i'm driving and i fall asleep as i'm driving the car back which is a theme of my college career. I fall asleep and by the grace guide we go into a meeting. We don't go into oncoming traffic because it was two lanes of traffic and like everything everything gets destroyed. Mike car gets wrecked. I lose all my stuff man. It's all over the highway and when we get home that night. My mom is like hey. I'm just glad all of you are okay. You know you could have been killed but the only thing that happened was car was wrecked so i'm just happy that all of you were safe and i was listening to my mom say that but in the back of my head i'm like almost gonna kill me once he finds out i can't go back to college where they've been sending me for three years right some money paid for the most part and so i finally worked up the courage this later on in the summer and it was getting to that point there were like what are you going to do and are finally worked up the courage while i was just i just told my dad. I'm like listen listen i can't i can't go back down there. You know it's it's now for me. I'm struggling. I know you want the best from me. You want me to get a college education. I know you love engineering but i can't. I can't do that so i don't know what i'm going to do and i was expecting my dad to explode you know i thought he was crushing down up on me and i was going to end up on the streets but he as most older like older like your parents do. When you think about kick you out on the street he looked at me and he was like listen. Mm figure it out just figure out what you're going to do and that took me aback almost like super shocked that he said that and so fast forward and my dad passed away a couple of years ago but i had conversations i was able to have conversations with them like a aw right before. He died and one of the things we've talked about. I was finally able to tell them what happened. When i was down there at school and one the things that impressed me was like i know i never i didn't want you to get a engineering degree. I wanted you to get an engineering degree but it didn't matter to me. I saw you you struggling in trying to find something to do and i thought engineering would be good for you because one of the things i wanted to do. I know i sent marine biology but that's that's not completely true. They asked me when i wasn't thinking. I wanted to be a filmmaker. I wanted to go to school for film but as you know college film film school cost a lot of money but he said to me he was like listen. I i saw you struggling just trying to find something nothing to do and what i wanted you learn i wanted you learn how to survive because with math and science. They can't take that away from me. Two plus two will always be too blessed to but our is subjective. It's up to somebody else to say that's good or that's bad you know in like back in my day was a spike. Lee was just ask your parents.

That's better help dot com slash story collider our next story. Today is from brianna shaughnessy. It was recorded in february me twenty nineteen at the overrun theater in boston. The theme that night was rocky. Road mm-hmm was sophomore year science class and the most popular boy at our high school on cape cod. Pass me a note. I thought for sure he had the wrong person. Teenagers are awkward but i was an exceptionally awkward teenagers so you can imagine how horrified i was. When i realized that was for me from corey tooling the boy all the girls were distracted by here this platinum blonde hair in these bright turquoise this blue eyes and the smile that lit up every classroom that he walked into. He's a kid that teachers hated to admit that they loved but you could tell that they were rooting for him. Compare that to me. Quiet only child. I was on crutches for the better part of two years because of reconstructive knee surgeries and that ruled me out of team sports so i was an obligatory bookworm so holding the note like a hot potato had no choice but to open it but i was totally confused used by what is said. Are you really going to take that. Corey was referring to something that i didn't know that he had seen by my locker. When a boy that was asked to carry my book bag while i was on crutches tossed it down the hallway and this fit of teenage raged i'd gone hobbling on crutches corey thought i should have stood up for myself myself or he could if i needed him to see corey was at problem-solver one time when his guardian wouldn't let them go on a school surf trip to north carolina carolina. He's simply forged her signature problem solved the dead of winter at the first sign of a nor'easter corey would skip school oil so that he could catch the best waves on the outer cape beaches with just seven millimeter wetsuit between him in the frigid atlantic ocean. I thought he was was crazy. But i was also drawn to it. It wouldn't be until junior year that corey would start inviting me on those trips and i would start lying to my family. Leeann my friends to go with him that i realized something. Serious might be building. There and i truly savored those moments that i got to see this deep connection action that cory had with the ocean. That's how my first love snuck up on me. Corey would go on to do the normal high school. Sweetheart things like take me to prom i'm but he would also rip me out of my daydreams and he would teach me to walk into every room and look at every stranger as a new friend not someone to be anxious or awkward awkward around and it's through those lessons that i would learn how corey ended up with us by way of colorado from a bad home. Environment now now raised by his grandmother on cape cod a few years after corey pass me that no we sat down the night before i went to college with this travel guy that i had given given him for his eighteenth birthday. The guide was to hawaii but that conversation quickly turned into a talk about traveling the world and in the back we tucked this is not of the craziest adventures that our eighteen year old brain's could come up with get a tattoo skydive scuba dive the great barrier reef surfing australia travel around central america. I wanted to be an artist. Corey wanted to be a surfer but those careers aren't exactly xactly encouraged by high school guidance counselor's so i went on to study art and corey stayed on cape eventually becoming an e._m._t. We'd see each other on weekends and holidays but before i knew it i was a sophomore in college towards the end of that year on march thirtieth two thousand nine. I turned off my phone so i could go to sleep in the morning. It was flooded with messages and not knowing where to start in sensing the impending chaos called my best friend. She answered and said that corey was in an accident. I remember asking her. If he was okay what hospital he was at in she said no. I just remember dropping the phone later. I would find out that corey was driving on a windy road on a rainy any night. Our high school guidance counselor son was backing out of their blind driveway. Chorus cars simultaneously lost control because he was an e._m._t. Some of the first responders were his friends corey died at the scene a week shy of his twenty first birthday things blackout for a while after that i remember my father picking me up and taking me back to cape cod where high school had created this safe space face for us to grieve and it's in those same hallways where korean i built our loved that his absence started to trickle throughout our tiny tiny community. I remember an ambulance completely blacked out with cloth at his funeral. I remember seeing my father cry for the first time time and i remember feeling completely alienated. Wherever i went especially around my college friends who felt so much younger than i felt feeling isolated and also medicated push my way through my sophomore year of college and i watched this wave of numbness in grief reef wash over my best friends from home. Many of us had taken belongings of corey's that had sentimental meaning i found a pack jack of clove cigarettes and a t-shirt that smelled lake him but someone had the foresight to stash away the travel guide when it came back to me it still had the list in the back act desperate for a sense of direction away to feel like i was taking control of my own grief. I decided i had to do those things for myself itself and also for corey where most art students we go to france or spain to study abroad. I signed up to go to australia and my mom mom also grieving joined me on adventures and skydiving and bungee jumping and for the year anniversary of corrie's death we set out to dive the great eight barrier reef. I remember the instructors just before we got in the water giving us this debrief on how to vomit into our regulators and thinking this is is not what i expected but when we got in the water i didn't feel the claustrophobia that most people weren't me about. I just felt the worm embrace race of tropical waters and by the time we got to the bottom. I was enamored with how quiet it was. All i could hear was the bubbles from my own breathing in my own heartbeat. The closer that i looked the more that i saw there was this giant mound that i thought was a rock but when we came up to it ended up being a giant ryan clam it had this bright purple fleshy mouth in these dozens of turquoise blue eyes and it was just remarkable. There are are the same color as corey's is around the clam where fish and anemones and corals and so many things had gathered in this tiny little snapshot option of the ocean and i wanted to know what everything was corey taught me that i could be anything that i wanted to be so i came up from that dive determined to be a biology major i would go on to take classes in ecology costa rica and believes and eventually i <hes> do a masters in marine biology now take me on crazy diving adventures to panama where i swim with whale sharks and friday harbor washington where pods of endangered orca whales live finally after being told i couldn't do things for most of my life because of my knees i found somewhere uh-huh could excel intellectually and physically and then i faced a crossroads in the year before funding came in for me to start my p._h._d. St where i could go back to cape cod or i could do it. Corey would do create my own adventure so i ended up in the landlocked mountains of colorado auto. I worked in a sushi restaurant. I skied fresh powder. I hiked in the rockies and even met someone so by the time the buzzer ring for me to come back to massachusetts. I almost stayed out there but eight years after corey died three weeks before i was meant to drive back to boston. I stopped at a crosswalk for pedestrian. A seventeen year old on her cellphone rear ended me going almost thirty miles an hour. Our time paused as it tends to in the pedestrian and i locked eyes and he jumped out of the way and the next thing i knew was this bone chilling shilling crunch of metal in that rush of adrenaline that your body gives you when it thinks it's going to die all at once i physically experienced the things that i had nightmares about about corey's last moments on this earth that accident would follow me back to massachusetts where i was devastated. Eva's stated to realize that diving wasn't the same i'd come up disoriented and nauseous and i had to change the trajectory of my research completely but it the day after the accident as i tried to pick up the pieces of my life and get myself back to the east coast corey was right there or it could have been my own brain at this point saying. Are you really gonna take that this time. I knew the answer was no because i already stood up to the worst thing i could possibly take. I lost corey. Thank you the that was brianna. Shaughnessy brianna is a p._h._d. Student environmental biology at the university of massachusetts acid -chusetts boston prior to joining jared burns's lab as a coast and communities fellow.

Breakfast, leadership podcast Audrey burn out. You make the choice. Here's your host Mike eleven. Welcome to another upset of the breakfast, leadership podcast, Michael here, and I've got Nancy wearing fitness at work. MD Nancy, welcome to the show. Thank you. Michael, are you today? I am awesome awesome, awesome. And I'm glad that you're here and I know this something we've been wanted to talk about for a while. And even in the in the pre show conversation you've mentioned, something about genomics, and DNA in and we start talking about how so many of us, especially for driven type A personalities in. We're constantly on the go, and doing things we forget to take care of this vessel that we call our human body to the point where we neglect it in what happens is it creates all kinds of problems. So love to hear your take on on what you're seeing in the world over over your career in today and some. Things that people should really start paying more attention to. I will try to answer all of those Michael. As a cheered with you. I was to speech pathologist for years. So I worked with a lot of adult so in their between their mid forties to their mid sixties ended up suffering from having a stroke, many of them have massive strokes. These were individuals who may be very high powered the lot of stress in their lives were really trying to take care of making sure that they were, you know, building their empire making money taking care of everybody else. But what they weren't doings taking care of themselves. So that ended up being long hours of work with stress lack of sleep, not eating properly in sitting down or number of hours. I mean, the average American can sit anywhere from seven to eleven hours a day, and all of that ends up creating challenges with our body. Will sing it in possibly trimmed up becoming pre diabetic or diabetes high blood pressure and whole host of other problems, because of her life Sauvage were not taking care of ourselves. He has a society. I think we're less active than we've ever been, you know, with, with the advent of the cars, and television, we tend to be more, stationary, and, of course, computers and an even with our, our smartphones where weekend pretty much be anywhere oftentimes, we are sitting down when we're using them. And, and you know that seven eleven hours a day figure you get if you get eight hours asleep, which hopefully, everyone is aiming for that leaves sixteen hours so eleven hours of those days, you're sitting down. That means there's five hours throughout that whole time where you're not sitting down, but it might be a case of. You're getting up to go to the refrigerator going to the bathroom, or going to and from your car going to grab your Brown bag lunch or whatever the case. May be in right in amazingly were seeing skyrocketing numbers and type two diabetes, a wander ally. Right. In actually estimate that ninety percent of the individuals who are pre diabetic, have no clue. So that's why it's really important to get your yearly physicals. You'd have your blood work taken by your doctors 'cause your pre diabetic. You can reverse that with taking positive steps in your lifestyle from movement and nutrition. That's something I personally did, you know, after my cardiac event from a decade ago as I made some significant changes in, you know, a stat that I tend to hear about quite a bit in the dozen or so years said the healthcare sector was will roughly ten to twenty percent of patients will actually follow the orders that are given to them by their medical provider, which means eighty to ninety percent of people don't and for me, it was like, okay, I don't want to have another cardiac event, ever. So what do I need to do to prevent that? I'll eat healthier, become more active. I know that's gonna be a shock to people here. That's the ingredients. But that's what they are. So over time, I started eating healthier, became more active in, you know, lost you lost the weight, I am at basically my high school weight. In high school. You know, I didn't lay a ton, so it's, it's still kinda I wish I had my high school energy in my high school appearance. But I don't that's you know that's a few decades also. And, you know, life in all kinds of other circumstances. Do it be not. I don't I don't I wouldn't wanna look like how I did when I was in high school, because it the these, these war, wounds and marks are evidence that I've, you know, given life, a really good run for its money so far. So I, I liked you. I am where I am right now. So it works out. But again, I'm deeply concerned in when I based in Toronto, and while it's an active city. I am seeing noticing, you know, quite an increase in the diabetic population, and it's it's very concerning to make. I know what the again being in the healthcare sector for as long as I know it's complications are. And I know if untreated, not managed, well, what eventually could happen. And I don't want that for people in it's all under control. It's not like this thing where they can't control it. It's yet she can control it. I find with diabetes. A lot of individuals say, well, my mom or my dad or my brother, or my answer had diabetes. They don't take take it seriously. With diabetes really means to you in your body, and your longevity in your energy. I as a speech pathologist I've worked with individuals who had limbs amputated because of diabetes. It is something to take very, very, very seriously. You're not going. I'm sorry. What I find it's very complicated. Challenging is said, we are farted by information in an overload of information. She's very popular intermittent, fasting, you can have the Mediterranean diet and people, I don't even know what I'm supposed to do any more, and we can go to McDonald's. And okay. I've got I can have a salad there in thinking that, that's all right. And I find that people are very confused. That's why I actually started to get into the genome occur the DNA space, because it provides a place start to talk about how you are uniquely different were mainly the same ninety nine to ninety nine point five percent same. But it's that point five percent or one percent that really is what makes us different. So what might be the best form of exercise nutrition for you? Michael might be different than what's best for my body. Agreed-on even with dietary choices of the foods you eat certain certain foods that I find provide me energy. I feel good after eating them. And of course, there are certain foods that. Don't agree with me and I am aware of it. And I and that's one of things. I highly recommend people do a big fan of journaling, documenting. What your days are lichen, what's going on, in your life of just, you know, so you can have an exercise of processing, but more importantly, you can go back and look at it. And you can in jot down. Okay. How do I feel today? Did I have aches and pains discomfort, whether it was in stomach was feel-good boss level? Are you can look back? And if you're tracking what you're eating you can align, those things go. Okay. Seems like every time that I consume this than I feel this, and then you, that's when you can do a deeper dive in figure out, okay? Do you have some type of intolerance or is way that is prepared? Who knows what it could be. But and I grew as he wants to the DNA side of things like you said, you know there's certain exercises where I could do exercise follow all the routines in not make a dent in anything where somebody next to me that looks to be a similar bill's to do the same exercises. And ninety days later, look like they're ready to join the UFC and here we go. And I'm like what's going on? And, you know, from from that standpoint is just there's just certain our bodies while are similar are very different. And getting to those things can help you really figure out, you know, your, your custom designed way of living, you know, from the next standpoint from attrition standpoint, even to the point of wins the optimum time for you. Go sleep in the optimum time for you to get up. Everybody follows the this pattern of again, go to bed by this time. And get up at this time figure out what your your natural body rhythms are in if you're lying with that, guess what? You're in your body won't necessarily need that alarm clock. Right. We'll I it your circadian rhythm night believe there's a book that I haven't read it called the circadian code that. I heard his excellent, but understanding really your own body. Will do just a wealth of. I don't even say at how it can really make transform how you're feeling if you start with what's natural to you. Something just like the idea that air productivity during the day is reduced between based on research between two and four part of that is probably what we part is fairly some of what we'd at lunch, but the other parties just power, our body rhythms. Emotive seem how you flow in. That's an exercise. They do people is they're trying to figure out why they're burning out or why they're stressed out. I tell them, okay? We document how you spending your time. And they aren't happy that I asked him to do that. And then I remind them that I used to be accountant, and I had to Bill Kerr every fifteen minutes actually work for a firm where we build every twelve minutes. Like, why would you Bill every twelve minutes you can Bill more? If you do it that way. So that was just they make more money by doing that from switching to billing every fifteen minutes. Twelve minutes of those like a fifth increment Bill every hour. They, you know, the just the rates accordingly. You know, they're doing quite well, but keep track of your time in how you're spending, also what your energy levels are again, you, you can notice for them. So I the exercise for myself, and I find for me that I'm better to work on tasks in Crete things, and projects and whatnot in the morning. Usually after lunch in first, I blamed, it on just eating the too many saturated foods and garbage, but memory, nam eat a healthy lunch. I'm gonna eat the healthy lunch, and that didn't really impact my productivity when it came to wanting to work on those things from an emotional standpoint, like a to do this can like the six year old is like guest about that long ago. But I didn't wanna work those things even. But if you asked me to do in the morning, I'm like, yeah, let's do it. And I just. Nossa grand use of deep work and get it done. I recognize that for me. So my, my mornings I tend to do that afternoons. I tend to be more of the conversations or maybe not so much creativity. But just reflecting in looking at different things, and, and skimming some things and making notes for the next day or whatever I need to do and I find that by doing that for me. Again, everyone's different for me it helps. Shape might nays in such a way where I can stop working at a certain time and then ease into my late afternoon. Early evening routines of either cooking dinner, or if you're going out to dinner or, or whatever doing unwinding, and then go to bed wash rinse repeat, and it helps from for me anyway, to mitigate any stress and keeps me energized. I know. Okay in the morning, I'm gonna be working on these things. I'm looking forward to it. And I'm you know, obviously a use you'll mindfulness techniques and things like that helped me fall asleep because one of the challenges that I personally have is I get excited about working on tomorrow, and I'm like, I need to go to bed. So I get rest to have the energy to actually do those things are thinking about Amir brains going. Okay. This and this, and this in, like, okay? Bring I need. To Canada's at the Trillo exact. So it sounds like you have a live, you've developed like habits or behaviors that you do every day because she has found that you're very successful. Nets going to be the key to any type of lifestyle change is to get to the point becomes a habit because it's not fun necessarily. But it's it's going to work for you in, then it'll just reinforce it. Self over time is people tend to give up. After a few weeks or a few months, whatever their goal is isn't being met, or they get distracted by something else. Habits. Thank you. Yeah. It wasn't something. I wanna make this perfectly clear for everybody listening. It wasn't something that I developed overnight, this was a, let's peel back. The layers figure out who I am figure out what I was doing that lead up to my burn out and everything else that transpired. And then go cat wanna go through that again. What do I need to do? And a lot of people just jump to the what do I need to do? But for me I had to I go back and go a wide. Did I choose to do the things that I did that I and get the back spurring figure? Okay. Why did I choose to away y light shoes to work long hours wide? Choose to not sleep when I should be sleeping. What we all fear all those things up in a non judgmental way. This is just a fact-finding mission of yourself. And oftentimes out ask, you know, people that were. Close to me. It's a what is your understanding behind this and get some good insights? And from there. Let's start developing some habits to change these things and be more in tune with with your body and what, what makes it tick better than others. And understanding, okay. I always can be those situations in those days where you may have to work longer hours. There may be a situation where your flight gets delayed in your up later than you normally are. Life happens. You know, and the, the key thing is to have mechanisms in place where you can recover from that and figure out what those things are healthy recover from those things. So when you're working with people in your talking about new, their DNA makeup and all that, what are, what are some common questions that people ask you is? I'm sure that they are not overly in tune with the probably have an understanding DNA is, and I'm hoping more from a science background and not from watching Maury Povich background, but something nothing is Maury morning sponsor maestro. I'll be happy to take your money. But you know what? You know why? You know, we're wired Genia such an important part of, of designing our ideal life. I find it's great from a, a starting point. I like to make people feel positive about themselves. And so often, people do not believe trust sort of their intuition, their instincts often when they get the DNA results, whether it's the best type of diet for them, or the best of exercise usually know it some level. I'll give you an example when it comes to fitness, basic areas that are looked at are you more of a power or endurance type of an athlete your gene? So are you gonna be the bodybuilders going to do that one rep maps, or that sprinter, re that person who needs to do a lot of multiple repetitions or your that long distance runner? We all most people have a little bit have some of both genes there are individuals who are all endurance, and some were all power in recognizing that can really help to develop a more optimal type of a workout program if that's what somebody's looking for. And I have found I have so many recently assessed in he was eighty percent. Power in is too, before we I you'd everything I said, you don't like running. He's like, no hate run. And then I probably like dealing with heavier weights or things where it's just very powerful and very explicitly said, how do you know, I said, this is senior? This is in your genes have spare broadly player, which was perfect. We laughed about it, but really looking at that in again, for that person who isn't self aware. Now it wanna get into better shape. They want stronger just provides a starting point. Also understanding recovery times very, very important. Because when you start or you're engaged in an exercise program. We'd take your pushing yourself your coin had them formation just part of the process. And if you don't allow your body to recover adequately. It increases your chance of re injuring yourself. And then if you hurt yourself, what are you gonna do? You not gonna work out or gonna do less reps in new. We're gonna do less time walking or running or whatever that is whatever that exercises for you. So it's important to know is well, as whether you're prone to having ligament or tendon type of injuries. So my own DNA, I wasn't avid runner, Iran. Marathons in I here I am in my fifties thinking nothing's going to stop me. I was running. Races. At least once a week, I was doing cross fit three to four days a week, I was running to two miles to get across in two miles home, in the navy racing that night, a Ramli, fastest half-marathon in our fifty minutes, which was pretty quick, and my body's, when just said that they Nancy can't keep this up. I had a beer, I went to jog to Mike car one leg mood. The other one did hit I fell and I tore my labor. It's part of my hip, which has railed me, this was before DNA. But when I look at my DNA it shows that, that a hot would quote, a high via to match so it makes sense, and I had more endurance, gene. So it made sense that I was able to develop quickly into a decent runner. It also showed that because of inflammation, I really need time I need forty eight hours between an intense workout. So the idea that I run a marathon, and then the next day might go for job or even do the cross. It was not the most optimal for my body ended ended up giving out on me which curtailed really how much I run to this day. And I often joke around that I knew all of this beforehand, I would still be running marathons, and I probably can probably little scared now but that's that was sort of the power, the DNA Kazan explained why I had the problem that I needed up having. So now I just create my programs based on my profile the nutrition or, or the diet, or what I use really looks at optimizing your diet based on, whether it's more Mediterranean, low carbohydrates and low fat. It was a Mike doesn't take a quick story about a man. I was reviewing his results the other day. We weren't a networking group and I saw what he ate, he he had a hamburger, French fries. This DNA was such that he he's, he's the most sensitive to carbohydrates, that I have ever seen based on the testing. But right after beating winning. I reviewed all of this, and he's a he's getting tired yawning. He's like, I'm sorry. I said your DNA's telling me what's going on here in terms of thinking about that sensitivity to the carbohydrates, that he had in flood glucose going up in now, I said, you are crashing also said a new, you're gonna talk about what I was eating. I in we laughed because I do know him but I said, this is where the power of understanding some people could maybe eat this. But for you, you really need to stay away from water, those spreads of complex carbohydrates, in the sugars and things like that in, he's also pre diabetic, am I said, this is, you know, you really have to reduce this. The we can work on getting those numbers slower in his he's gonna be going to the doctor in a few months. Let's, let's work on getting those numbers, just the diets looked at that, but even more important to me what I've learned is that we've been a very calorie based society right now in weight loss face remember years ago, it was whether you two thousand calories in donor two thousand calories and celery didn't make any difference, which is silly. Really is. Because the foods that we eat are really roken down in our gut in fuels our selves, and our body in her brain. So it's very important that we get the vitamins and minerals and all these nutrients into our body said the DNA tests can also look at how you are with the optimization of whether it's your anti oxidants things that reduce inflammation, the a e c Israel as mega threes, which are very important. We think of that everybody tells us, we need our fish. Our salmon enter b vitamins for energy. So we have an idea of whether we're more predisposed towards optimal absorption, or not that just gives us one just gives us a little bit more information and myself. I need extra antioxidant. So here I am at high risk, I need recovery amid high risk of having injury to tendons, and I need extra antioxidants. So that was another Wimpy just for me. All those amazing. They're so much information that we have within ourselves that if people tapped into it, they would be able to. Live better and have a healthier better life for them just based on designing what they do how the exercise in what the eat. Exactly. So Nancy, where can people find out more about you, and get in touch with you to, to learn more about this work in what you're doing because I think it'd be beneficial for everybody to, to get to know. More about it in really fine. Tune their life base to optimize what their body is designed as well. I have a website in Debbie WW dot fitness at AT work, and the dot com. Just as shared with you. Michael, revamping it to clued a lot where the DNA engine omega formation. But by next week, the first of April, at the latest, it's going to be up again. I'm also on Instagram fitness at work, and I do have a Facebook page as well fitness at work. My Email address is Nancy at. Fitness at work 'em. The dot com.

Wajahat Ali: Make Me A Gardener

"Hi I'm Kate Bowler and this is everything happens luck. The world loves us when we are good better best but this is a podcast for when you want to stop feeling guilty that you're not living your best life now we're not always having an eat. Pray love experience. I used to have my own delusion living my best life now. I'm a duke professor wine and cheese enthusiast wife and MOM instagram gold. Then I was diagnosed with stage four cancer. That was four years ago and I'm still here and now I get it. Life is a chronic condition. The Self Health and wellness industry will try to tell you that you can always fix your life. Eat This and you won't get sick. Lose this weight and you'll never be lonely. Believe with your whole heart and God will provide keep this attitude and the money is yours. But I'm here to look into your gorgeous is and say. Hey there are some things you can fix and something's you and it's okay that life isn't always better we can find beauty and meaning and truth but there's no cure to being human so let's be friends on that journey. Let's be human together sheet optimists. Sorry what a way to start but seriously I hate optimists. Blind optimism is toxic. Sometimes things are as bad as they seem and we need permission to say hard truth things things that may not always be positive but I love hopeful people the people who even while staring down the darkness. Find ways to be kind and generous and courageous. Not In denial of reality but because of it I wanted to talk to someone today who is deeply hopeful in the face of the unthinkable because we could all use a little infusion of hard one hope these days today. I'm joined by my friend. Watch a hot L. E. Y. Is a journalist. Cnn contributor and all around hilarious follow on twitter. He is also the dad of three adorable. Little ones I met as he was taking a break from the hospital he was still wearing the bracelet and I remember how incredibly beautifully tired he was. He was tired in the way that people get when they've been keeping watch and whose lives have been sucked into the endless vortex waiting and waiting for results. You can't control. He had recently received news that no one should even imagine his toddler was very very sick. Today we're GONNA be talking about living fully in the midst of a world you can't control and about how to be hopeful fundamentally hopeful because I think watches attitude about hope will surprise you watch. Hey thanks so much for being here. Good podcast voice. It's do you also feel like it? Sounds understanding yeah it was. It was so soothing in understanding it was had had perfect. Npr's Melody Song Gate but at the same time but kept you engaged. I was I was like you always say that when you give someone a compliment in some traditions to not give them the evil eye you say you say oh. My that was like Masha. She has a very good podcast for very impressive. I'll be sure that in the future. Just leave you long voice messages on your cell phone with exactly this waste it. We so good. I'd be like soothed my meditation moment and I feel like dictation their watch you should be funny like you should like say the most vile things. I hate it when I saw on twitter today. You see merely inflammatory keyed much love but you could do better but I don't even think that even if you did it's okay. It's under corona virus. You could be as honest as you want. I accept I accept that social permission for the first question. This was a moment before I knew you. If you don't mind take me back to the day your world was turned upside down. You are on stage giving a Tedtalk and you plan this talk for months and months like I've done that process. It's like months of crap. What was your talk supposed to be about? So my whole speech was to make the case for having kids. In a modern society where there's income inequality in climate change and the the whole speech was a Trojan horse really to examine why in modern developed countries. We are not having enough kids. The negative consequences that are happening in society. In China and Japan the United States in Europe and the Trojan horse was was to end it with a case for pro policies meaning affordable healthcare paid parental. Leave a childcare and showing. How if you help parents especially women? It's not that people don't want to have kids is that they want to have kids but they feel so overwhelmed that they can't and I left my family and my family's in Virginia and my family at that time was my wife and my two kids. Ibrahim and my daughter but early in the morning my wife calls me crying my wife. Never Christ. What's happening. She goes ahead to take Nusseibeh to the hospitalized wiped. She says I found like this. These bump on her stomach. Somebody did she eat. Something like good. Wasn't you know. Did she swallowed something and she goes and she was crying in. My wife is a physician she goes. So my spidey sense said. Take her and they found bumps all over liver. I'm like what does that mean and my wife again. Being a physician without needing the final conclusive answer said this means this is cancer on the what the cancer what are you talking about? I just left her two two and a half days ago playing double on her stomach. And so that's when she said most likely it's it's all over her liver. It's like stage for cancer. I'm like stage and then the funny thing is you have to have some dark humor here. Is that one of the good stages. I'm every state just bad but I'm like but you know it was like I know it's bad bumming maybe stage one is really bad and like stand. Five is pretty good. And she's like no that means it's all over her liver and they fear it might have metastasized to the lung and so my first reaction was very transparent was I just I'm not a man who's prone to anger believe it or not to kill all Muslim. Stereotypes actually very chill. I just took like offense kit the pillow and I said No. Yeah and then the second thing I did was The the barter prayer which I call the barter. Prayers like where. You don't have to be religious you could. I've I've heard from parents. Who even agnostic atheist. You do a trait in so you sit there. And you're like okay God or universe two year old girl thirty eight year old man at that time with Dad. Eeo Easy trade my life for hers or let me absorb pain and like you know you're not gonNA hear a response. Yes others under. Forget was like thirty five and my dad is like was sixty eight or something and I was in the Living Room and leaning. My head was sitting on the ground leading my head against his knee any his hand on my head and he goes. Oh Sweetie I pray I pray all the time why you and not me and I said Oh that is like the nicest and saddest thing I ever heard. Because that's that's parental love. And then he said but then I start to remember that Mozart was younger than you when he died. So what have you done lately? But he didn't think it was exactly what he'd prayed every night. It was like the second you hear news like that is like all I would do in the whole world is absorb is like if I could take this pain into my own body. I would do it. That's just that's the kind of and I'm sure if you ask your father Every night For years or even now does he do the same prayer. I'm very confident he would say yes. This was almost a year ago to the day. Like we're talking about and then I get a what two three days later. I gave that talk which you can find On Ted and incorporate this this reality into that talk because I thought I would otherwise be doing a disservice talk and I'd just be dishonest. And so my my mom said You know you're coming back anyway in. You're already there. And so why don't you go and give this talk for your daughter and do the best that you can and then you just imagine that was the most surreal week? Because you've done Ted you know there's so many interesting people on they just line it up with so many back toback interviews engagements and also prepping for this talk that the world will see and meanwhile the whole thing whole time. I just have to few state that's exactly instead of ending with the pro-nato policies. Like what did you say instead? So I ended with the pro-nato policies and then I said you know You know having the decision to have kids was the best decision we ever made and and I just shared with them said just three days ago I found out this news and you could hear a collective gasp in the audience like someone took up the entire era of never seen something like that before like everyone. Just stop breathing for like thirty seconds because that crowd in particular. Most people in the crowd had kids. Yeah and then I said despite all of this you know my wife and I don't regret the decision. It was the best decision we've ever made and You know I I think I did say something nice imported which I'm forgetting now but I said you know I feel. I ended like in a hopeful note. Yeah I remember I said kids at the end of the day represent our hope our hope for the future and if we choose to completely tap out then what's the point of all of us right and I said like so you know what we hope to do. Is We hope to pass on kindness and love and decency. And that's that's if we can just do that then maybe All this is worth it and and I meant it right and so because you you sit there and you're making the case for having kids and my two year old has staged for cancer. We don't know if she's going to survive the month. Do I still believe this and number two. Did we make the right decision like this? This weird starts playing tricks with your I did. I make the right decision to have a kid. It's like this. If you knew your kid was GonNa have stage for cancer and you can take the delorean back in time. Would you still have the kid? Yeah and there's a Muslim analog to this I'm just curious like 'cause the way you the way you're framing out this kind of love it just reminds me of the There's a ham. I really love that ends with like even so even so it is well with my soul. And it's about all of the terrible but I always kind of imagine that like most of my beliefs could be summed up in like yes but even so what I hear you saying with like yes is terrible and scary world yes there has pandemics and climate change and and little girls that should never deserve to get sick but like even so we will continue to to hope even so we will have these beautiful expressions of love like even sell even sell and and there. There are several saying of the Prophet Mohammed which is very similar to Christian and Jewish teachings were told his followers that even if you see the day of judgement coming around the corner you have to plant the seed if you have the sapling in your hand and you're like oh I was going to plant the seed. Oh look it's the four horsemen over the mountain What should I do and the in in the in the in the command? The recommendation rather from him was to plant the seed which means even if it seems that literally everything will fall apart. You still have to have hope and not just have hope you have to act on that hope yes lanny the seed So it could be of benefit to other people lies. I love that you still still put that little tree in the ground. You still plant the I come from a farming background and they would love that watch. They love it. You have some really good advice about this when it is your kid when it's wanted to you the one going through the awful thing. How should people respond? What were of the really helpful things that people do to support you and your wife Sarah. You have to realize most people if they're awkward with you. It's not because they don't care it's that they don't know what to say. The no one has been taught this etiquette. What do you tell a parent whose kid has cancelled? No one knows and so that that that awkwardness that can be so frustrating for a US. Were enduring it. I'm just I'm just saying that many people want to help they just don't know how to and so a kind word is good. I think knowing that apparent has probably explained the situation. Forty-seven times really if you really don't need to have the thorough plotline. Don't ask because we were just get exhausted. I remember that if you see the parent come out for the first time in a while. Don't crowd them and just drill them with stuff. Curiosity Yeah No. Curiosity is so costly. Costly I was. I was nice to everyone but I went out with. My son wants because my wife and daughter were in the hospital and like there was a friend. They're having birth. Apparently please just calm. So I said I'll take my son this poor kid you know. He was four last year but I remember everyone again. With best of intentions routed me for thirty five minutes and I was I was I remember. I just sat down drained and I was like. Let's just get out of here. Also I think the stuff that really helps is the practical stuff so put yourself in the shoes. If you must have like a mom or dad and your your life is crazy. The house doesn't stop. Your kids need to eat bills. Don't stop so what I found. That was very helpful or these gift. Cards like grub hub. Yeah was a huge help. If you'd like these stores where you can buy. Toiletries like Walmart. Gift Cards. I'm just humidity. Donald Yeah Love. It says play dates for the kids recommendations or even close friends like. I know you guys are exhausted. Why don't I take your kids for like two hours? The play with my kids and you could take a nap. Absolutely some very practical offers. You can give to people that I think will. It's not sexy but it doesn't have to like this is lifesaving stuff he i. I'm just I just want to explain to people that. That's how devastating cancer is that even person like myself who is married. Who has friends? My wife had a job. We had a little bit of savings even then without a community to help us. We weren't have made it. Yeah that's right. Yeah and you never forget that. Do you like the feeling that if it weren't for a thousand threads holding us up like you do fall all the way through. I think about that so much right now with so many people just everything collapsing around them. That most of us would be okay if someone else didn't come along if a lot of someone else's didn't come along beside us and human beings are not meant to be islands like we we learn we learn how to. I mean people think about like I did everything myself you hear that. Sometimes I did all by myself. You know you really do it all by yourself. You learn how to speak language by yourself. Did you learn how to like put on your really right like if you really think about it? It's we are dependent upon one another and I think that sense of interconnectedness like you said has been magnified in a crisis where so many people now are. Shut off from community. That's exactly right. Yeah and and you say. The story is one of like unbelievable community. So Nusseibeh went through Chemo and then it was determined that a liver donation was her best chance at survival. But you and your wife weren't candidates. Is that right? So yes ooh. Sabo is type which is awesome because universal donor sucks because you only need type and unfortunately my wife and I are not a where A and B respectively. Because that's another thing what people don't realize when you're you know reverse situation because you unfortunately Kate Yo you are living with with cancer. I come from the other perspective is that I'm the person the father of who has to help. And it's very. It's it's so devastating. That fathers are For especially a daddy's girl a or like girls look up to their dad's DADS are supposed to save the day like Prom. Dad Fix it. Simple right like. That's her job like you know she goes dead only should fix anything. You just have to listen to me like what you just listen to me. Jared like our at find a list. You want me to fix something like no. Just listen to me like okay just like. That's how dad's think right and so it's so humbling that you can't fix this. You can't fix cancer and you sit as a father and you're like I cannot help my little girl like I'm useless. I'm so useless. I can't even give my liver as so and so it just you sit there and you go like what the hell can I do. I feel like a second bellybutton. That's how useful him no offensive. Those would second belly buttons. I'm sure you've found him. Signed it'd be politically correct. The community always make sure all those aware. Usually if you're lucky and I'm saying this with all you know do you have it on a part of your liver and do a biopsy and you remove it and you do some chemotherapy and you pray to God. Everything's fine and it's all over deliver like my daughter. We tried tried tried. But all the doctor said we've got to get rid of the entire So now while she's doing chemotherapy now. We need to find a beautiful liver for her. Which is oh Blah type? No one in my family has it. My mom has a cheese Above the age has to be a certain age. Now thanks healthcare system They'll you know if you have insurance. It'll take care of the surgery. But what about the person who offering their liver and has to be knocked out for six weeks take care of them so now we have to do a call out and this is where in my mom said in my mom's Boccassini immigrants? She said I always wanted you to become a doctor. But maybe God may June to a writer with a lot of twitter followers to save your daughter because I deliberately kind of wrote a narrative and did a call out using social media to try to get liver donor. And then that's how it went viral and we got over five hundred people mostly anonymous sign up to be potential liver donors. Sabe and towns said we have never seen so many applications. We have never done so many tests and nobody is matching with her. I'm like what the F. O. Buddy yeah I remember the Georgetown Transplant. He was a few people. This lady said I've never worked this hard for girl. She's in my dreams as she and she was gone. She goes because she goes. Yeah she goes she goes. I'm working day and night. The new stabled literally in my dreams. I'm doing everything I can. I'm I'm doing tests on. Its many people because she was like. I've never had this much of an output and I've never done the diagnostics. Nobody matches for those people are wondering like why is this important is because it's all about timing and the health and the next chemo and blood counter weekend and they're like we have a small window watch. We have a small window. We have two weeks where we have to find the donor and do the surgery. Because then we'll after Chemo Niche Chemo. She'll be knocked out for six more weeks than who knows. And then Lo and behold an anonymous donor. Who's not even on twitter? His wife falls me on. Twitter was reading my thread. She read one tweet out loud. He takes the phone. He actually looks at the twitter three. He goes oh I'm over type style. Yeah and she goes what she goes. Hey I'll I'll I'll try out. And then he ends up being delivered owner. He wants to be anonymous where there at the hospital and a mutual friend of mine. Dm's means says oh my friend. Sean is just text all of us in wished for prayers. He's going in for a surgery. I think he's your daughter's liver donor and I'm like what. And then he goes crap. I don't think I was supposed to tell you options. And then and then he goes in his wife and his family are there but they keep a separate and I'm like why don't you tell his wife if she wants to meet me? We're here but if not that's okay and then I go to the commissary and I I bump into this woman who South Asian and has a hit job and I'm like are you Shawn's wife and she goes I am are you with Jihad. And she goes yes and we were both waiting for our respective you know Shannon's Nusseibeh to wake up and and then the final thing. I'll say this is the doctor who did the the transplant on shot and he goes listen. He was crying he goes. Listen I've done many of these surgeries. Let me tell you your your daughter. Got a good man's liver and I said why she goes first thing that this this kid. He's like shot he's twenty. Nine ninety turned thirty. Schlesinger says the first thing. He asked me when he woke up. Because I've done Sony of these people who want to go back to work and by doing well you know. When can I go to the gym? The first thing asked me was. When can I donate blood again? Yeah 'cause he he. He donates blood. He's all he's he donates plasma he he's donated like that's what he does on the deal and so and he wanted. He wanted to be anonymous. He's like he goes. I only did this for God. I did this to try to help someone I I didn't do it for anything else. I saw the donor at a video. You posted recently and you're gorgeous. Daughter is running to hug him. Tell me about that moment. My wife called Sean has now. We're friends right. She goes listen. I'm so sorry last-second but the ring the bell today and I didn't know if you wanted to come by and goes what a small World Mike Car. The tire today for some strange reason. So I've been stuck at home so I can actually come today enjoying ringing the bell at otherwise. I wouldn't be able to make when you ring the bell that means you're cancer free. So she had the transplant in September and in January of this year she rang the bell so him and his wife came and there is a great video. You can see I. I started worship Were disabled rings the Bell and she's actually runs like this with their little feisty little. Booties shaking with her with her with her supergirl costume and she's like boom boom. She runs and she gives them like low high five in like upward high five and then he picks her up and then is the eye of the tiger music playing in the background. It was great on. It just makes me so happy. I do think that there are bracelet. People and not bracelet people were now living in a world of people who will now understand that on a wider level that there will be lots of bracelet people. That's right that's right and then those and those incredible brave people who who dream about them. What a gift. You're gorgeous story. It makes me wonder. Does it change your view of the world? Now that you know that there are people out there like Sean which is put their own health on the line for a little girl. Yeah you know. That's that's that's that's a good question because my wife Sarah's one of those people who is just it's a she's a freak discussing cause like super beautiful. He's really pretty really smart and really kind. Yeah I always joke like our marriage like this is like if Sarah saw Freddie Krueger she would like. Oh Freddy Krueger. I think he needs a hug. And I'm like so Krueger. No Sarah like hey freddie like run to Freddie Freddie like take out his claws like killer Cyrano she goes he just needs a hug and then right before she hugs him she sees a lady bug and she bends down she goes ooh lady bug and then Freddy Kruger. Like ends up stabbing me right and that Sarah's like what just happened. Oh you're bleeding. Let me save you a great like analogy of our like marriage. Because I'm like a little bit more cynical and she is just like everyone has a story in a perspective. I'm like maybe some people are just bad. She goes no and so the reason why I mentioned all that is. I sometimes get very nutty. I genuinely surprised when people are kind of like what's there. Why was the person who's being nice in Sarah's like they're just nice and I'm like no but Y Y and she's like no some people are just nice and so what this? This whole endeavor was very useful for me. Is that I try to be decent and kind anticipating people. Screw me over if that makes yeah. My wife is decent kind because she thinks the world is decent kind. We should still be decent kind. She's not you know pushover at all. And when I saw over five hundred people mostly strangers step to donor when I got these comments from people who rail on me on twitter like Dean said I hate all your politics I get that there's almost verbatim quote all your tweets. All your politics I hate it every time we come on. Cnn But let it be known me and my mom are praying for your daughter. So then you're like what it what it would did show me is very important for me. Is that people have the capacity and the desire who still be decent in kind in this world. Yeah they just need the opportunity. Yeah when this pandemic started. I hadn't fully processed that. This was some people's first experience of chronic fear. And then I thought Oh yeah. Welcome but like what a hard thing to be invited into. And you're already a veteran of this endless uncertainty. I'm passing leaflets. Showing people around but for people who are new to this experience. Like what advice can we may be. Give about living here because we have experienced the past year. Where in a strange way? We were preparing for crew numbers. Our lives were disrupted. Our work was disrupted. We have hand sanitizers everywhere in her house. Because once you have an immuno compromised a family member. You're terrified that you know she can get sick. We were already social distancing down on our social engagements already because who had time my kids at home and coming up with activities and so in a really weird way. Kate like this is just an extension of our past year. Yeah yeah there's a great thing in Slama I wrote about this it's God commands the believer to tie your camel. I and after that lever to God and what that means is you do everything in your human power to prepare like. Don't just be like Oh God will take care of. Let me just let me just go out. And and get social distancing and pass on this crow virus no do like do everything in your power and then after that you have to let go. Yeah yeah nobody. I like that. I like that so much. That sounds exactly right. This is GonNa be a tough one for people but I think you and I know this one. Give up on normal. A normal is not coming back for a while. Yeah I put a big sign that just said basic. French and I needed it because I needed to hit. Remember my other slogan. Don't be about it. Which is that like when you're stripped down to this dad's you're like okay like here's where. I live now and I need to. I need to be okay with like just getting through the basic stuff and not an and everything else is. It's just like not where I'm at right now but I think what you said was really like this is where I'm at right now. Yeah and so. We have to make peace that with with. This is where we are right now. It doesn't mean we're going to be here forever. Yeah that's right and I'm okay with. I'm okay with wearing my pajamas at three. Pm Right now with my kid watching way too much TV. Yeah because this is as good as it gets right now right now. That's so good I think right now is so healthy. I have this little question I started asking like if it's if it's not everything is possible and it's not nothing as possible. Then I started saying so then what is possible today and like I love. I love that I love the right now. I love the like just the little space for now to open a possibility. But not like saddle yourself with invincibility or unlimited potential something like cancer and dislike. Krona virus has away of completely flattening. You and overnight reminding you of how insignificant our universe and no matter how much we thought we were controlled. How little we have control over and you could be stripped overnight of your health your wealth your community and so what it basically it forces you to question what really matters at the end and I think what really matters at the kindness. Like how will we endure like? How will we be human to each other during this crisis through kindness if we can find ways to be kind to others but also to ourselves and I want to stress that if you can find a way to be kind to yourself and love yourself and love others we? Can maybe emerge from this crisis. as better people. Yes yeah thank you for coming to my talk. I love your talk a I hate optimists but I do. Love deeply hopeful people in Huma. Friend are deeply hopeful. So what does hope mean to you now? You know I would love to be the Gardner and maybe I can plant that seed of for my kids and that generation and maybe for lucky. If I'm really lucky before my time's up either we can enjoy the fruits together or we can enjoy the shade. I'm doing it because I want to be the gardener with whatever little time I have left me because we don't know what's promised tomorrow you know I just WanNa be the one of the helpers especially during this pandemic when it's all said and done and you because you believe in God I can actually talk about this once. It's all written. It's very important for me. That Allah says on the day of judgement. Whenever we meet you at least tried in your Alpers Yeah? Yeah Oh my Gosh. Watch though with my new prayers. God make us gardeners I also just Feel like it's worth mentioning. Thank you for having more kids. I know you've got three of them. Each I saw photo. Holy Crap all gorgeous. Y'All took my wife and God I know. Kids are not great for quarantine but it's so great for the world to have that much hope in it. Watch definition of hope is a thing of beauty. Hope you said is action. Hope was in the people who surrounded their family with help. Hope was in the call to ask people to donate a liver. Hope was in the answer from an anonymous donor. Hope was in the man who woke up from surgery and wondered when he could give all over again. Hope said watch makes us gardeners selects be gardeners we plant the seed. Because who knows maybe one day we'll get to sit in the shade together This podcast wouldn't be possible without the generosity of the Lillian. Downland huge to my team Jessica Ritchie Keith. Weston Harriet Potman and JJ Dickinson so fun fact about the podcast world. Your reviews matter which you mind taking a minute to write a review on Apple podcasts. It would mean so much this is everything happens with the Cape Laugh.

Can you guys just please stop questioning the haunting. I'm going for a very specific vibe here and you're messing it up. And what vibe is that Spooky Christmas that's not a thing thing. Okay well now. The vibe is money okay Remember the money I do. I could really use a one hundred thousand dollars. Well we'd all split it in that case case. I think everyone should consider leaving so I can have all the money. Don't you think that's a little selfish. You don't deserve the money any more than the rest of us just because you made the decision decision to lose everything gambling. We're all going to split the money evenly. I wouldn't count that money yet. I mean you'd have to make it through the night. I A lot of mysterious Steve and scary things have happened in this office. Things that I can tell you about as I have experienced them firsthand trying to get us. Ask Ask you what happened. Great Question Keith. Well one night. I was working really hard on an important project had left for the day. I was at my desk when in when what sorry I was expecting to go into flashback. Yeah there it is dear Tony The tiger. I am a big fan of your cereal and your message. Would you love to Collab- may be more. What was that? Hello anyone out there flashbacks over. I was too scared to leave my office so I slept in there. I bet it was alien. I bet it was nothing. I bet my entire life savings and most of my possessions on a series of children's schoolyard games while that is very concerning. This isn't about you Damian. This is about the ghosts in the office and my very generous offer of one hundred thousand thousanddollars to those of you who are brave enough to spend the night among the ghosts. A murder mystery. Radio play we're in an abandoned theater hitter in the nineteen twenties. No we're not in an abandoned movie theater and this isn't a murder mystery radio play. It's just a group of people making an audio recording of their chilling experience. It's an and location overnight during which some may perish under unknown circumstances. I'm not staying here all night. I'm going to go. Are you sure she's sure her we. Why don't you WanNa see what mysteries await? You know. I don't do mysteries surprises or conundrums and it'd be able to plan ahead by guys. I'll walk you out. We follow no one in Libya out of the boardroom into the parking lot. I don't blame you for leaving leaving. I'm a little scared to. I'm not scared. I have to catch a flight to Spain. Oh goof what are you going to Spain for dinner are you going to. I don't know I love okay. Olivia gets into her car. and Noah lingers watching her drive away with images of pyeho dancing in his head and as he turns to go inside no hits a snag when his wallet chain gets caught on the gate. Know my I change. The Gate begins to close inching closer and closer to Noah as he struggles to free himself. Come on Komo okay. what's the GEICO GEICO godly toward numbers sprite. Or maybe six hundred fifty. No Oh no loud. Hello unfortunately for Noah his screams cannot be heard by his friends ends back in the boardroom. Who are getting into the holiday spirit? We should get cozy and watch Christmas movie or something. That sounds so fun. It'll be like a slumber party. No it's it's not a fun slumber party. It's a harrowing night of survival. Hey Shinola backed by now key buddy. Don't worry about no I'm sure he's alive live. Why wouldn't you be alive? That's what I'm saying. Hey we should go get a snack in the kitchen and get your mind off your late friend Nam. I'm good are come on I'm hungry. Let's go get a snack Damien. No said good. You're good with having a snack back. So you're gonNA come with me. No I'm good now like I don't need to go with you because I'm already good. Oh you have to admit. That's pretty confusing phrase so you can see how I could misinterpret interpret that to mean. You'd like to come with me. Maybe next time you should say no thank you no. I'm good I'll go with you know thank you. I'll say here with Keith. But you said you were hungry. Yes I guess I did say that. Let's go shane. Shane leads the way to the kitchen. As Damian reluctantly joins him looking back at Keith within indiscernible expression the door closes leaving. Keith Courtney and Ian Alone in the board Ram that was weird right. Yeah seems really aggressive tonight. and where the hell is Noah. I'M GONNA go look for him out there all alone in this haunted office. Where Noah disappeared and Damian a desperate man with nothing left to lose sees you as an obstacle between him and one hundred thousand dollars? No I guess I'll just call them. Hi you've reached. The Church of Noah Grossman a real church meets the minimum requirements for tax exempt status if you're the IRS. Please do not leave a message as it is against. The teachings of the Church of Noah Grossman to speak to the agents of any government entity. Thank you and God bless you or whatever we believe okay. I'm I'm getting really worry now. Don't turn this into Noah Gate. He probably just ran into the boys in the kitchen. Or the Ghost Cottam. The ghost did not get anyone sure they did. Why do you think Shane gene screams all the time? That's just his personality. He has low self esteem and needs to be loud so people acknowledged that he's there the goes sounds. It came from the kitchen. We should check on them. I'm so comfy here and I'm not gonNA walk into Damian's weird trap do you think it's a trap door like in an abandoned theater. Oh Shit it could be no. It's not this isn't an abandoned theater. Isn't it though Noah fine I'm GonNa go check on the boys while you to scaredy cats hide in here. I'm not a scaredy. Kit and cats are bad ass anyway. That basically living weapons with sharp claws no empathy. Sorry I don't understand cat with Keith. Ian and firmly planted in their seats courtney walks into the kitchen to find Shane out of breath. Standing over. Damian's body Shane. What happens who we were eating in cookies and Damian attacked me? I had to use my big muscles to take him down. Another flashback man. I sure sure do love cookies. Yeah me too. Hey can you check. If they're more in the cabinet. Sure Shane hops onto the countertop and reaches into the cabinet searching mm for something to satisfy his friends hunger. I don't see any maybe in the back. Still not finding anything keep looking. Shane continues his quest for cookies unaware that his best friend has finally ginger snapped. I'm so sorry. She winds up and lunges at Shane. Their bodies may contact and they scuffle just Back Wow such big muscles I know right. Good jump big boys was that nothing. Love you big boys. Are you talking talking to your muscles. No not at all. We have to be discreet anyway. I checked he still alive just unconscious. I can't believe he really tried to hurt you. For money we should carry back to the boardroom so we can keep an eye on him. Wakes up no good idea. I got him share. You don't need help. got these the big boys. Let me at least get his feet or where do you live his feet so much. Why do you have to act like you're such a macho asshole? Let me help I got it. Chain continues continues his struggle until suddenly the lights go out Shane. Courtney fumbled define their phones when they turn their flashlights on. They find that Damian's God I must have thrown him into the next room and the lights went out bad boys. Did you hear that. Yeah was it. I I don't care let's go to the boardroom. It's empty or is it. Hello WHO's there it's Shane and Courtney Keith slowly emerges his from under the table why are you hiding whereas in in wants to go fix the lights and my phone died while I was trying to call no again so I don't have a flashlight hand. I got scared okay. Okay well we'll stay here with you while I call for help. Damian attacked Shane and ran away. Wow wait a gloss over how I beat them into. Submission carried his body across the office. I know there was something going on with them. Does anyone have a phone Combo Keith. There's no power right. So how can you guys. I don't have service or Wifi call for help. We don't either. Suddenly the door to the board room begins to shake holes there flies open to reveal tim from it Tan Han from it jazz. Sorry pull the door instead of pushing. Just WanNa let you guys know. The wife is down for maintenance thanks from it. I'm working on the Wifi at night. When the power's out he's just a really hard worker? Chat Tim's the best. You mean tombs the vest in in case you missed the joke. Tim always wears a vest. Keith does not appreciate Shane's excellent Pun. Hey guys yeah. When the lights from Shining Courtney's phones hit Olivia? They see that she is covered in cuts and bruises and they wonder what happened. You're covered in cuts and bruises. What happened when I was leaving? My car ran into a pole and knock down power line. You knocked down power. Mike car knocked down power caroline than a cell tower. I figured I'd just wait here. In order nobre maybe the office really is haunted or dame did some to Libya's car who That in where is he not here. which were staying? We should really go no Damian. It's still out there. This could be another trap less ended not to go after you. So why would you want to help him. I didn't know that through. Sorry for all my person discussion food. I don't accept his apology but my heart is my biggest muscle. So let's go fine but dame is out there. y'All got to tell him to kill you. I the deal Keith. Olivia Courtney and Shane carefully. Make their way through the office. Libya's is wandered to the props table in this neck pillows so cute. It'll be perfect my flight to Spain. Olivia that's for a doll. Are you saying I'm not a doll. Yes yes that's exactly what I'm saying. Yeah Wow wow what how am I the bad guy for saying. Libya's not a doll. Shane idea yeah that you're going through a lot because your best friend is Heiko murder. Some just to pretend you didn't say that Olivia puts on the neck pillow modeling it for her friends. How does so cute small looks? Small doll like Olivia starts choking. I can't get it all her friends. Try to help her. Take make the neck pillow off but it's too tight. I told you it was too small really Shane. Now's not the time for. I told you. So wow wow how Olivia wake up. Olivia wouldn't wake up her. Life took an early departure. Did you guys hear that. You're what it was a really bad pun. Courtney is being unnecessarily mean to the narrator who is just trying to have a good time well maybe the narrator shouldn't be trying to have a good time when our friends are dying eyeing right courtney follows her own advice and turns her attention away from the very cool and funny narrator and back to her dead friend. She's she's dead. Oh my God Livia. We don't have time to mourn right now. We got to get in and get out of here. You're being pretty cold about this. Yeah and now that I think of it. No one actually actually saw Damian attack you. Maybe you attack him guys. You're being paranoid. I'm sad about Olivia to and with Damien. I was just defending myself. Let's just go to the and why is it more important to go to in. WHO's probably dead now than the state here with the Libya? We don't know that he and his dead shouldn't we save the people who are still alive rather than sit here and stare stared dead body. I mean in is the one who brought us here and made a stay all night so I don't mind if he dies in fact I'm down to go kill him. If he's still alive can idea you and Shane guys is. That's crazy in is our friend. We've gotTA help him was the less I mean do something Nice for you. Ian Is our boss. We gotTA help him. Look I disagree but we might as well go and see if he's alive. Fine the group of three continue their journey through the office shooting Shane suspicious glances. Can't believe how long we've been walking. DOC ID office is huge. I know I need water. My mouth gets dry when I'm scared of imminent death. Let's hit the water cooler. It's empty. Of course Oh there's a new jug right there replace it. I don't worry about it. I got this here. Let me help you know I got. Shane falls to the floor. Under the weight of the water The water pours out and Shane begins to drown Shane. Shit we help them. Well hang on. If we save him we could be saving a murderer and he seemed really eager to Serbian. Maybe they're working together. We don't know the end. He's also our print. Ac what's the last time Shane did something is for you. But I've never done anything. Nice film either. So we operate so. Can you really call him a friend. While Courtney and Keith continued to contend end companion crows meeting watery end. He's so shall we go. Let's go no more stopping okay. Hey we get to end and we'll get outta here. You got it little discord knee. No She's entering her final act. That's both a callback to Courtney's idea about the abandoned theater theater and also foreshadowing the way that she dies Spoiler alert narrating is harder than it seems. Keith I to tell you something I think bad so please. He's don't judge me. I'm the one who what the is that a sandbag on a rope that bill from the raptors like in an abandoned theater tragedy. This is so fucked. Up Out of here Keith. Runs to the attic crawlspace until he finds a bodies played out in front of it. domine a figure naked from the waist down emerges from the shadows. What's going on here? What happened in your pants? Crawlspace checking the fuses when I heard footsteps approaching. Gene flashback. Hello WHO's there as the footsteps get closer in struggles to turn to see see who approaches. I'm stuck hello WHO's there. Oh Gosh someone up so I had to take my pants off to Shimmy out of the crawlspace L. Space and when I got out Damian's body was on the floor. You go put your pants on now though. I know what happened everyone else. They're all dead but you're ear still alive weird. was that weird because the black guy always dies. I Yeah that's in horror movies. This is a murder mystery. Radio play that format format doesn't know what to do with the black guy makes sense. Anyway I hate to do this but I'm GonNa have to kill you now. What yeah offered everyone money to spend the night here because I'm lonely but but when everyone accepted I realized that I don't have one hundred thousand dollars so kill everyone? You'll have to kill me. I'll need the money really wish you would've told me that before. I confessed to murdering a bunch of people. So how should we do this. Pushy downstairs or toss you in Nevada. Acid where did you get Nevada acid. I bought it on facebook marketplace but focus Keith. Push or toss. You're not pushing her tossing Keith anywhere. No you're back. Yeah my chain got stuck on the gate and I couldn't remember the code to stop it from closing but then I tried one one one one and it worked. Yeah I didn't have to take my chain off dammit. You were supposed to take the chain off what I thought that the gate with force you to take the chain on you knew I was out there. I could've died shit happens I get it. I mean I killed Olivia when I walked out. I just wanted to make sure she didn't come back and get the money so I cut a break lines. That didn't kill her. She died because she thinks she's the same size as a doll. I I am Olivia. Yeah I faked my own death. My figured out that I wasn't the only one trying to kill people. Oh shoot you tried to kill. People too do SAR tried to kill you by the way well. The joke's on you because I never even tried to use my breaks. I hit the power land on purpose because I wanted to be dark when I snuck back in to kill Damien because all this talk about being broke made me really uncomfortable man. I'm sorry Livia Damian did you just come back from the dead to apologize. I wasn't dead. I have panic attacks then. I pass out when I'm scared. That's what happened in the kitchen. I knew I could take kief in hand to hand combat but I was afraid of fighting Shane. Honestly honestly that hurts more than one. You wanted to kill me. Okay well Damian. I accept your apology and now that we're good. I should warn you not to touch the stray cat I put in your office. It will definitely attack you all little kitty cat only gonNA pay so good. What does that? It's coming from the stairs. It's me Oh you're all year. I'm sorry I left. You thought you were dead. Also why do you still have that Sandberg. I wasn't dead faked it. Why isn't anyone gasping? I think the Damian not on purpose man got it. I thought it'd be the only one I was really excited about the abandoned theater idea. I had so I thought it'd be cool if I got crushed by falling Sam bag I also set up a series of trapdoors but no one uses them but I did kill Shane on great. Thanks Wchs I saw how Wiki was when he tried to carry Damian so I took the water jug off the water cooler knowing he couldn't resist putting it back on did. Did I do a good job. You did a great job up court. Yeah Great Job Courtney. Great job of lying if spike can't lift the water jug. There's no way you can. It wasn't that heavy. I think you're just really week. Oh yeah what a weak ass bitch be able to lift up this sandbag Kurt Franck. Shane's inability to lift a sandbag is incredibly sad to to watch. Thankfully he gives up. Wow if I'd known you were this week I wouldn't have been so scared to fight you that I passed out what you'd pass out. I thought you and I one then. I sealed your fate by putting peanut in your mouth. You may not know this but Damian here is deathly allergic to peanuts. Oh Oh I've been wondering why I had this peanut my mouth and I'm not allergic. I love peanuts dam. which would have you is allergic to peanuts? Then man Eh. I guess my mind is this week as my arms off Shane. What is silly? We've all had tried to kill each other over nothing Undoubtedly although Damien. I think you should seek help for your gambling addiction. Shane Ian you said he tried to kill everyone but we all just tried to kill each other. Well I tried to poison all of you but no one drank the coffee from the cure egg L.. Why would we drink cure coffee? Of course how. How could I forget?

I thought murder mystery podcasts. Were a new thing. No no I mean. They had radio plays on the radio before we had television. I had no idea what it radio play was what I thought this whole thing was today but okay I yeah I know I feel stupid. No I'm so embarrassed you didn't.

What if we did like all like rounding fathers that die? I mean we all this is l.. History you're saying we just do Hamilton. I don't know. Aw I'm just trying to spit out some ideas and we should tribute to his one. Funny thing about radio plays is Orson Welles did a war or the world's back in the day and nobody is really used to those things and they made it seem like the like it was a real radio transmission and that there are being attacked by aliens and a lot of people actually got freaked out they thought an actual alien invasion was happening. Someone like people like did crazy crazy shit. The world's last reassure people murdered like murder here time to murder. I started looting.

Read Fan Fiction as a radio. Play probably chess. Sometimes their scripts are great yet but also we definitely bring them word for word when we do them so maybe for this one will will spice it up a little.

I'm big culture design expert. She saw with people problems in business, creating innovative workforce's, integrating diversity and inclusion, and her book the twelve essential business communication skills release in September twenty eight teen will be on amazon.com, so please welcome. Jessica Higgins, hey, Jessica welcome. Hey, thank you for having. Actually my published publish agent just in for me that it's now the ten essential business communication telephone the add two additional at the end. So my book title has changed, which is okay as ratings only look for ten. Now the two are still in their run can, but it isn't there. It's it's kind of like that. What's behind our numbers. World, you know, oh, I know. Yeah. And everybody has published a book. Knows the book title you start with or the color. You think you're gonna go with dozen that way, Honey, I got yellow. I'm that you're saying this me because I had this beautiful keel the color of the ocean. They sent me this yellow book. So now my book is the same color dummies guide series, which is. I get publishers will do that. Oh God, I have five books and I don't think one cover. None of the covers I'm gonna say is anything that I started with. So the together someday and just do whatever we want money, honestly. So was you publish who you're working with you? I'm with Callisto. How about you? Okay. My last one was Morgan. James several have another one that working on now, but I can't say who it is, but it was still doing some negotiation, but they've already like, okay, let me see like what your draft is of your book. Cover them all. Here we go. Gal is gonna be changed. Great. Everybody. They really are the reason because they they are like on their game when it comes out. I was in talks with the big one of the big five's in our time was two years. I'm thinking, yeah, I live in age of social media, like I work in minutes. I can't handle that. So Callisto had me. They actually bumped up my release date August the hunter free released July eight, which is into weeks, amazing witness, saying the beginning of his year while that program. I'm so happy with them. Yeah, I ate realize publishing book isn't what it seems you think only disliked this masterpiece minute? Yeah. Yeah, you're not in. You have to have a good team behind you. Do. That you are in their lines emission of like activeness getting getting out of way with good marketing behind it. And I'm like, all about, so you're all about this. I really intrigued with you. And a lot of people that I work with our of your age and a love working with you with that age group because you like you said, like you are by the minute. We gotta go, you know, you gotta get it done, and I know I'm that way. I know a right if I tear is a keep it up, like what's the problem, removing keep moving and an exchange. The millennial, you know you're you, you really quick to adapt and to change, and I love that. I really love that that you start your own business by the age, twenty eight. So let's go there. Like what gave you that thought of just starting all starting your own business at that age? Yeah, I wouldn't recommend anybody. Pity and. Tough Vic's only belief in myself and out aware that I didn't have any of the skills. I had like one subset of the skills I needed it. I went straight from graduates will into management consulting career end just thought, you know what I can do this better in these people are doing this being the hamming her I, I was I within six months at the company, I became their director level of his director. Business development was their business out in just using the skills like you said that my generation has like, let's grow grow, move fast, right at the table with this group of executives who are very, I don't believe in ageism. I think it's a mind that, like you said, I mean, you know, there are plenty of ways millennials out there. Let's not pretend like millennials, moderate. None. I agree. It is a mindset and that's why would a hesitate when I said millennials, it's not. I mean, you could find people at whatever, but right, it's set. Yeah. So you know, when you're sitting feeling like you are this way in an immigrant going, you know, calm down, just whatever you go to my own then like eight months into having company. A Mike car was totaled, and I went, yes, insurance money. I can pay my rent. So like the first eight months of my business career. So like I said, don't think you can do something right. Take your time. Move wisely, make a safe exit strategy transition out over time. I for sure. You know whether it's like a side hustle or something that you're passionate about me, that's not the the reason that you're gonna have a successful business. The reason you're gonna have successful business is because you master accounting and you master financial planning in you, master of marketing communications in UMass earn your sale. Suttles you're gonna have a successful business because you understand how accessible business it's known and it's, it's, it's when I see. I see so many especially women in there. Like I'm yoga instructor. I love instructing yoga. How do I build a business? And then I send sales funnel books and go, this is how you in there. Like what I don't. Wanna read this. I wanna do yoga, right, right. Yes. Do after smartly partnering with another group in all the skills that I needed. I've actually recently exited that company that we built into advisory position, then successfully built my own business in like me days like four clients. And now that was my next intensive solo preneurs grateful for it. So I can now I can now say, thirty three, having you know, all of that experience in rebel, it's been a very different, very different experience. I bet that so I thought I could just hear everybody out there. Listening, say homes to get those four clients. So how did you do that in such a short time reputation? I built a reputation in industry and people started just banging on my door saying, I want you to do my marketing and I had never been a marketer. I had always been organizational design engineer. Marketing. Okay, interesting. But in the culture change work that we were doing part of it was internal data science. So understanding how the human being layer works with your also studying the mindset of that because he psych and you know, organizational design, I could see you're on that out right on the execution side. What we're doing is marketing. Essentially, these people were using influence change management and is influence that I was creating inside of organizations is actually very hard to do. Whereas when you're marketing products, the external environment, you have a lot more people that you can connect with so many different types of consumers out there. So right, the the external marketing is actually much easier to do, but because it was so good at at marketing internally, people started calling me wanting meet a market for them in Iran, okay, I love it. It's like. So so what type of businesses you work with their other specific industries is entrepreneurs work with corporations? Who do you work with? Don't? I'm right now focusing on growing really promising businesses in emerging technologies. So why lock chain base companies artificial intelligence companies and cryptocurrency. Okay. Okay. We have. We took Chapman because I mean, I, we have many within our membership that do a lot of crypto, and that's part women in technology on. That's a big area that I also assigned to injury. So yes. So that could be another conversation that we could be there, but what what advice could you talk about like somebody who does yoga? And that's that's what I've read across web because I've been doing this for twelve years and I come across so many people that are like, oh, I wanna be yoga. Oh, I wanna play music or I just want to speak, but they. No, the business side, the business aspect of it. So one face would you give women to really step in their power of creating a business around their passion? So when I the reason that I learned everything I learned is just lateral moves. So when I go into a company take on, you know, I started consulting. I got to the director level for the same reason that I was able to branch out of my partnership in move into my own business is lateral moves. So just taking on as much as you can in different areas. So I only let me try that. Let me learn. Learn more pip up, whether it's in marketing or its design, or it's even like web development. I sat with web web designer was like Honey, this in like his learn, which is you can't because those skills as a business is a whole set of skills you need while is if you're in a company right now, go make friends, you know, ask if you can take on a mentor, ship mentors are incredibly or. Sided. Your silo make lateral moves until you can understand how in not in school. My MBA never talk this right. Like helping actually work. Do them those at the skills that you need and they're sitting in your current company, you just have to go and find them. Yeah, willing to teach you and people love to teach. So instant easy thing to do, and that's absolutely true as anybody for advise. Everyone is willing to give vice and teach you and show you something, but that's the one thing too is being an entrepreneur is you have to be multi-day telling. Wanted across so many layers, but way you're marketing and you know this, but when you marketing any marketing out, you have to be very specific at an area that you Mark it on in. It's definitely different than you running your business and being, you know multilayer with it. So you also talk about cultures and understanding cultures within an organization. So I wanna understand that just a little bit more because then you also what what else looking at you also talk about women's rights women's activism and is that scaring away clients? Because for years, I work with men and women. I still work with men and women. We have. I shifted my podcast, be women focus. I shifted my one of my programs be women focused, and there's been a concern of mine is well, am I scaring away lands? Because we are you are really being activists woman. Writes, yeah, so I am a big believer in finding my tribe and big believer that if someone's not going to respect you for your gender, not somebody that you wanna do business, right? Which is DC to say something like that. It's much harder for cost you money. Right? So it's like, yeah, so I decided that my values have to come first in that's financial choice that's mental emotional choice in. So I hope I think that we did a really good job. This generation of educating women were finally seeing more women are going to college. Now, women are over graduating over men, yes, who were not employing women. So he look inside of companies. They're only like seventeen percent at the management layer. You get into the active layer only eight percent. One woman, and then you look at this cystic where if there's one woman in the c. suite manifield that women, they report that women are being accurately represented in the workplace. So our men scared of women are they terrified of? I have no idea. I'm like really smart. We're over educated. You know, we care. I believe that women like so passionate. I, I have an all women company. I only hired women, I don't care if somebody that's fine. But if you if you show somebody like, oh, actually, I do at you. Work with one grinds named Sunway and he supports women owned businesses. He's feminist and he is like one of the early on millionaires so he's a different mindset with if you have people around that are of the same mindset. I think that's really important. But as a culture, I m pushing on the front of women to hope to change that mindset so that there is I, I want the next generation of people to look back at women in the workplace in big lake. Why not? You're crazy. It's like when it not too long ago, women weren't allowed to vote, right, right. Our not being allowed to work. So I think you and I are of unique physicians that we are able to take his latte form and not not many people are have women to meet HR departments going, Jessica. What do I do? And I say, like, have that conversation, you know. Hooks and say, how are we hiring will numbers of men and women just out of. It's it's education. It's not just educating man. The one thing that I found out because I was doing a lot of research when I decided to shift completely to working with women, and it's so funny I have all, but I'll women on my team as well, except for one guy I'd never had. It wasn't intentional, but I, I do, but we, we have to also help to educate the women because so many women call themselves back or the. The other thing that I found out a lot of the research that I did is a generation x. you know on Dell, not necessarily the the baby boomers that's more you know younger than that, but they wanna have fun there. There, you know the generation of not having fun. I want to be in control. I want to stand up for myself, but for the women, they still tend to take that backseat of, I'm not good enough or. Are living in fear or you know, I, I don't know like they the not pushing away through, and that's the one thing that I do help promote. Because the other thing that I see to the lot with with women is we actually go and fight against each other. And that happens because, again, getting into an executive position because I wasn't with cease wait the only woman for years, but when another woman comes in is always at challenge at because you're out, you're you're fighting for like one spot. So we eat out, you start fighting against each other. And that's the other thing too that we need to get away from that also needs to be part of the education. I love the way you're talking because you're talking how like I think, which is really it. You know, people talk about like organizational design, and I think managing company through series structures or managing research structures is wrong. It's just the wrong way of looking at base. It's why. When the I'm Nobel economics. Because whom he'd really not make you looking here is that human side, what people are afraid to look at. The thing that were afraid to talk about but matters. Women were culturally is in Zimbabwe where culture, allies to compete against each other on all of these different banks resources though, of course, we have this weird corporate culture. We're weird people. We've been general. It's not like you put on a business suit in your up. He marketing officer hat, and suddenly you're not a human. That's a lot. That's, but that's how you have to remember. That's how it used to be. That's how the previous generation was an era, and it still is you go to the old boys club. I was like over for an executive position once and I read, I say, I wasn't part of the good old boys firm club because that's why that's why get, although I had the board saying you're getting, you're getting getting it. And then I find out through an Email, somebody else got a guy, and I was like, I, you fricking kid. Our so upset, but you know, but that was really bizarre analysis of because it's really guys network, you know, we didn't think that you would fit into that as so that's some of what we would hear as women. But I know some it is changing a lot more education needs to happen around it. I mean, it's would just would just not done. So what advice you have been for women to give women who really want to become leaders in their field? Yeah, I let me said education. I think it's like more enlightenment really might mid. That's a good word to. Yes. I think just creating awareness is number, and then you know, I studied under BJ FOX behavior design lab, which is design lab that created trod Instagram in is available online. He is a wonderful human being in publishes his work. I highly recommend going DJ fog dot com because you can learn little behavior design tricks. Though one of my favorite behavior designed tricks is the term trigger so eager is anything that occurs that makes certain way. And so one such trigger is when you get a text message, if you get vibrate on your phone than you get your own, which is why they check saying, you can also create figures in the workplace. You can create triggers that reminds people of bad behavior when you see it. So if you can get creative about, you know, there's a bad behavior that you I become aware of. That's going to hold you back. Is there are gonna be behaviors that will do back the number one I need if a woman wants to be a leader than she's already doing her work. I believe that she's, you know, she's studying. She's learning as much as she can't. She's mastering yields, but she also has to make a path wound. So you know, one such example is like meetings. So there is crazy habit that people have interrupting women during meetings in interrupting women during meetings actually reduces their perceived power. And so when you your power constantly reduce becomes nearly impossible for you create a power full position end in. So you have to make that way for your power to exist in create that our free themselves. That's a really good analogy because, yeah, I mean, I see it happens so much so often. You just really just not you off. Okay. Each other. I know I know, but, but just like you, I did a lot of behavior like all of those things on the wall behind me. It's all of the behavior and the research did about behoove in behavior and it wasn't just, you know, business corporate, but why do people behave the way that they do? And it's a lot of exactly what what you're talking about. Yeah, show Maya little ninja trick is it's really hard to pull off so practice it. But when someone cuts me off, I make them re listen to the entire sentence. Do they know next time they do it, they have to take time out of their dates Bego. I'm sorry. Let me go back and restate when I was saying. Sometimes put me off. Okay. Sorry, let out try again. Let me let me go back and say they're like, no, I heard you. I'm like, no, no. Let me try. Over until they finally you're out. Knock freaking being a dish me, you know, listen to meeting these lights, and there were three of us sitting there and I was introducing the two other people, so they didn't know each other at it was a female guy, and I'm just wondering, I didn't realize until you're you're saying this. So he was having a conversation with her and she said something and he cut her off and you know, she stopped him and she said, I wasn't done talking do not interrupt me get and they even know each other itchy said that I was eat out. Of course, I, I was taken back and I was like, well, I have to practice that. They know in all of any quality here, we're not talking about women being better. We're talking about everybody be fame. I had a guide to that on a business call with me. It was last night. It was like their schedule was messed. They wanted to take this business call at nine pm. I was zaas. It was home in. I cut this guy off and he did that to me. And I was like, you earned that when buddy. Okay. I'll give that way too. I got. I keep the one thing I wanna do with my next book. This isn't. This is my vision. I want to get a bus and I want to travel around the country, educating men and women about exactly about what we're talking about a human behavior and how we can come together in gender equality, and you would be you would be great to be on the story of with that would be awesome. We need a tour by the internet. Let's make a whole blasted out lasette that way. Yup, just get it all again it out there. See, that's what we're thinking differently because I'm taking. I wanna get in a car drive and you're now we gotta do a quick. We have right now sued. I'm knew to actually my team would say that to now we got to, we got to get it out there. So if you wanna do about that, so cool because human interaction is so missing the debt, like real in raw and interesting, but if you're simultaneously filming it light years earlier, playing it. Got a movement. Yeah. Yeah. I've already started looking for sponsors for the bus that to me that we wrap it. And yeah, I'm already looking for sponsors, and so we were already depends on when the sponsor comes back at this point. Probably be looking at spray US Open. It would have been ball, but would probably looking at spring to do, it's we'll get fucking about that one. So I have a couple of questions for you. I want you to finish the sentence for me. I activate my power. How do you activate your power as women? I wake up every morning inset positive intentions for my day. So I wake up every morning and I stopped myself and I tell myself who I am ended. I, my second step is to create a list of what I'm to do for the day, and they're all things that I can do in the day. I try to make that list it's hard to do, and then I cross them out throughout the day and that news intentions that Michaels. And when I'm feeling a little low, I go do cardio. It's my blood flowing. I feel positive. Again, I end my days I have is whole intention routine. I end my day with a a hypnosis for success and positively men's I sit before I go to bed. I listened to this hypnosis. I let me to sleep, right? I have this whole hypnosis. I worked with this group, have this whole program around confidence and not self sabotaging, working through your inner voices in your head. That is where I get my power his furlong time when I first got successful. I don't know if this happened you, but the new I get successful. It's not like Ogun successfully. You kinda go tonight earned this like should I be are out of. Wasn't I just do or you know, somebody would apply you at night. Why you applauding me. The, you're like what? You're doing a really good job. You're like. I don't know. I don't know about that life. And so the hypnosis really helped create confidence our end the the power in intention setting up day and just he has an object, emotional, stay motions gonna just, you know, but, but then again my own boss, so I have, you know, we need that, especially within your own boss. Yeah, we do. We do still need that sometimes. So the next one I have is I believe, I believe that if we help others, we actually become a lot more successful than for only focusing on our own success. Very, very true vulnerability is owner ability is it's like being yourself, even though you know that that's just a weird person. Snapping yourself. Weirdo. So. This is USA. This is this is so what what are you believe is the world's greatest world? Wind of a tough question is political climate. I think our current greatest wounded. Are these tariffs that are shutting down is this is United States of, that's not the world's greatest wound. I just wish that we could have won instabilities that we can even just get back to work in focus on thriving, making the world better place through human. You know, who will love that really love that. So where do you find balance of making things happen when you have to let some things go? Tell me that. I don't know. I don't do that. Letting things go. It's like, yeah, that's that's the hard part about a person who's really driven is John. It's really hard to like delegate when how that you don't have the same passion level that the person you're delegated Eliah is for me that passion disparity because it's like I, my passion levels here, man, I struggle that my one of my mentors ban I mentioned, he said that the art of delegation is managing against human variation. Just know that area exists manage to end just kind of play to the strengths and the weaknesses that's practice. What tell me. Well, I think it is a practice like you just said, and in it comes with a comes with age and just like you. I had to do everything. I had to be in control of everything I want to delegate because there was a lack of trust or if I have to explain it to someone could shoot myself. And so I have really high standards for how I want things done. So it's really hard for me to to find that person is a mere image of move as going to do it. And I've had some people over the years to do that. But then there comes to the point where as yes. Okay. I haven't to do list I actually I do very similar meditative ID mind in the morning, and while I'm doing that or may even do it when it Massa gem and but I have to think to myself. Okay. It's not gonna get done, how or is that just wanna go just. Just let it go. And it just came again. I think you know, through practice over the years. Lashley mom a couple of years ago, she was really instrumental in helping me let something scout. And because I actually took it was really a a life experience because I actually took six weeks and I completely stepped away from my business, spend it with her before she passed. And I would never of done that before ever. And that was the other thing too about that time I was struggling with. Okay. Do I let go of the business has as I run it for all of these years because I wanted to scale and I wanted to go to that that next step and it was through conversations with her another people that could saying you need to do a program just for women just for women, and then even my mom on her deathbed, where having a conversation and she said, when you enjoy doing the most said, I really, I want to be voice for women's women's empowerment. That means I need to let go a big chunk of my business. If I do this. And you know, and it was her and she said, you need to let go. She said, you've just need to let it go. And I and I did that and it was hard. I mean, it's still hard even to today because I actually had another podcast upper out which has been successful for five years. One awards with, I think we had like a hundred and fifty million listeners worldwide, all the networks. I let it go and in this win in its in its place and Namie. Additionally, women who dare then recently found out that was a trademark issue. So we had to make that change which we did, but I have not watched. I mean, I did lose lose followers, but I have not lost people that really want to listen in here our story because I'm more offenses now I'm speaking now were with a passion than before was like, okay, we're gonna talk about business and leadership, which I still talk about leadership, and that's exactly what you are doing. Now I'm doing it in a place of somebody else said this to me and I got, yeah, that's it. This isn't a career for me. This is my passion. This is my life's work now to be voice of women and women's empowerment. So that's what I learned to let things go. I'm so proud to be part of this. MS mothers fire this red. Yes, that you were like, I mentioned, you know, now how do you? It's easy to stay things, but when you hold your values, I act when it gets hard. It's hard to walk away from real money when you're pursuing in pursuit of value. But actually you have character that character replaces all that loss. You know. This new character I resonate with feeling. I mean, that's what happened in corporations in you. Probably see this where people are there. They work in collecting a paycheck, but a lot of times it doesn't really fit into their own personal values or Ryan, which is why? Yeah. Why? ADA for five years, I looked at how do you design values driven organizations in values are a series of statements on a poster on the wall in businesses isn't so silly the way it's constructed, putting people room together, calling it a meeting somehow, gonna create an ovation or putting public accomplish there. How do you create about these driven organization. ASO. What are your major? Three values. I wanna ask you the mice might values, integrity, honesty and trust uniform who? Right, right. I mean, if you don't have that, you just, you know, then passionate in everything else with it and going back to what you said before people will have passion, but how do you take that passion and then make it a business? So we go, I talk it forever, but I know we're outweigh like way out. So I do beg you for being here. So what? What is next for you? What? Where do you go year?

Agnes Denes: environmental art pioneer. Plus, Rembrandt-Velzquez and De Hooch

"Bonhams auctioneers since seventeen ninety three to find out more visit bonhams DOT com. Hello it's the newspaper Podcast I'm Ben Luke a bit off the coast in association away from it I gave it my life and it's not just the environment is the entire human condition so there are general and in fact I once read that you wrote that making art today is synonymous with assuming responsibility for our fellow humans and that listen why think that's top of mind for a lot of people now obviously with the climate change conversation and what nobody was talking about it five years ago I mean not many and people are like little monkeys they listen to each other you're known for creating what is kind of the first ecoconscious earth work and I think that speaks to a larger philosophy behind your work and and scientists and some artists and thinking people were concerned or at it then it just took the world this long not so you were talking about this back in the nineteen sixties what first attracted your attention to these kind of ecological let's talk about one of your earlier works the rice tree burial work that you did in nineteen sixty eight and that was upstate New York and just for our list out of environmental artists today and I'm very happy that there are so many but when I started it it wasn't just the environment to become aware of it and that's a big problem that it takes such a long time to become aware of things now everybody's talking about the environment eighteen eighty two on landfill in Lower Manhattan out deputy market editor in New York Margaret Carrigan sat down with her to talk about her work and philosophy diagrams and environmental she's perhaps best known in New York for Wheatfield which was quite literally that a two Acre Field Week that she planted tended and harvested in does seem to embody a certain kind of philosophical approach to your work what did you mean by that statement does tweeted says the SUV responsible inches of something that nobody was listening to and now everybody's talking about it I just hope they won't forget it issues and what made you want to respond to them then well it's it's was obvious to us who were studying the environment was studying what was going on in the world and it just it started it started that way from science from research and from being wasn't just the water quality it wasn't just the air quality I measured New York air quality before it was taken care of I actually bottled air buttle there for one of my exhibition called New York Air I know it sounds silly but it was important at the time then all of a sudden everybody's jumping up and down about it and then they forget it and that's another problem you can't just worry about something make it a call and there's this essentially fell into performance in three acts you planted a field of rice then you change and trees on the site and triangles and then you buried a time capsule containing it own conceptual poetry What what kind of message were you hoping to send through that work and and in what ways does it extend like you said week the New York performance and visual arts space the shed has organized a retrospective of the work of Agnes Dennis whose decades long career spans among other media sculpture poetic and philosophical writing? He's talking about such as when I grew up in Sweden I wanted to study migrating birds because when you do a work of art you don't think of a message here I am doing something for you you make the art it comes from inside square feet before they put up barricades and lived there for eight days probably the scariest Rice represented life chaining the trees represented interference with life or death and formation transferring the the forest into a sculpture garden and we had an interesting idea from your creative ability or understanding and I was a very curious person all the time so I studied a lot I lived in a library it was my first project but the first recognized project here in this country was rise to burial and it was a very complicated ambitious project stories and I was also very lucky that I happen to be an artist so I could visualize my philosophy and that's what why did commit suicide and I designed little airplanes flying objects to pinpoint the moment they can commit suicide was I photographed them because nobody believed me and you have to sometimes prove yourself to people visually before they believe you and went out to the edge of Niagara Falls and live there on an area about ten experience of my life it had been dynamited to control the retreat of the false so that it looks good for the visitors and work is about burial was the first recognized major artwork although I have done very interesting works before that nobody three hours so simplifying it a chain a sacred Indian forest where chain the trees to each other and sculptor you gave you gave your life to these to this kind of consciousness how does it extend beyond you having very that time capsule well let me say this twists thesis Antithesis Synthesis and synthesis represented the poetry buried in the ground talking about that every time I have a retrospective they're forced me to look back at my life I was crazy I took incredible chances and I together on a small island yacht lund in Sweden they're committed suicide and I was a teenager when I started studying and are felt the alien nation that people who come into different countries feel the alienation compared it so I felt that and I planted a rice field to represent life I brought in soil from love canal and I grew radioactive rice it shook under my feet than I could have fallen in any moment so they made me sign a document to both board so I I see it as evolving process very slow I find this turn of phrase I've seen you say before and other interviews and if philosophies such dead but philosophy of philosophical thinking is necessary so I felt that if I took my concepts into a visual form it would be better understood and so I took can and the Canadian government that if I fell in would not sue them and I promised I would not end live there and write down something and because I was so shy she was stunned and she did it and it was a poem it was a little poem about her I spoke five languages when I came to this country that from the poetry being stilled of visual expression that's insured derives reburial what made you want to take that risk for my are now looking back as they're forced me still do I walk across through not being able to walk for my art it's I don't know it be on you coming from it's it takes years when I was born I was a poet I wrote my before I could write my poem I was like six years old and I was very shy and I yelled at to my mother to grab a pen or a pencil aac little thing about how beautiful she was but I started out as a poet and then when I lost my language through all the travels logic and thinking processes and all that into visual languages very difficult so that's what my art is about and I'm afraid planted downtown right incite with of World Trade Center and Wall Street was this intended as a kind of anti-corporate Mess Michelle shed let's rewind a little bit and talk about what made you want to become an artist and take these risks the thing that's beyond you it's a process people have to think a little when they look at it I'm afraid to stop the usual occupation of listening and start thinking photograph did from the edge about a foot away from where the water was going over sixteen thousand tonnes a second you begin to understand it I think one of your most beautiful works and one of the works at your really well known for was the wheatfield that as such as we will covered by little red spiders that didn't exist anywhere and they will do little Indians who had been buried there and sage and more broadly do you have any reflections on how the city has evolved in the last four decades and what's your view of the site that you lost your language and I wondered what that means for you and in what way visual art art and the performance and so that you've done have provided laws affi and visualized it and that has never been done before and I had no guidance of how to do it was very difficult to put math I had no money I got very little money from the public are trained to supplement it had to find volunteers daily thirties forties fifties and was nothing they're beginning to build better park city which now has taken over rice and we are the greatest cause options in the world so visually it was easily understandable for my whitfield space Whitfield's spoke to people because it's the most commonly understood concept I play into the work but that's besides the point but I was invited actually by public art fund to do a public we're the shed has recently opened Hudson yards which some critics say is this to untrammelled wealth is there people who interfered with that too on also the people who were construction workers made my life miserable they want to answer your question of why I did it as a accusation of what we were doing as a block from Wall Street facing the statue of liberty across the Hudson and where the immigrants came in to United States in the and Lee they came to people came daily do interview us and actually how does that play into your retrospective in a site like that Russia the work doesn't have to play into anything it's it's the retrospect talk was all polluted and I was migrating and from country to country and I compared the birds who when they're will end conceptually it was an accusation of the misuse of land the greed the mismanagement of the world and it nearly killed me I worked on that for seven eight months nine months may be probably harvested sad you sob an got all aggression out of my system she's so those wonderful friendships and next some somewhere inside before we get into some of the work that's going on view at the shed from the work that you are proposing in the beautiful healthy wheat and it was the only healthy weight in our country because the wheat fields had been attacked by elite smart calling attention to world hunger it was about many many issues that we're facing a concept behind whitfield was difficult to do another type of language or what is that kind of language that come through okay and it's a good question I was dealing with philosophy being and that's how you get to my work I make it beautiful so that you're caught by the beauty and while you are contemplating the beauty and it was beautiful and people started talking about it I took a taxi i Mike car was being fixed a took it showed up and we we had to plant we would a week late with planting finally he shows up in an empty truck he says you'll so dumb you'll get that was very good looking and never noticed though that I was good looking it never occurred to me that I was but it occurred to the boss and she says you save me thousands of dollars in psychiatric fee I picked up the stones and through them and work like putting on a horse in the plaza I decided to plant a whitfield instead and it wanted to put me into Queens I think it was him only but the weather lack of money I didn't have enough money to buy located the gates so that volunteers couldn't come through they had to dig a hole under the gate to roll in to come to work it was different I've felt obligated if they worked for me for nothing to feed them so after working on the field all day I went and made sandwiches for them for the next day his name was joe the Mafia leader and boy he was after my hide it made life miserable they stole my equipment they better omitted check I can get you the soil for that money it's not enough don't trust people here's your money go do what you want oil I mean there are so many stories that I've written about I gave all my money to this guy to get me soil no maybe it wasn't them they're the leader told them to interfere with me because I wouldn't go with him to Atlantic city to to to punish the good look and chick who was interfering with their work and I was a long time ago where was easy to get land but planting a we will in Queens would not have been as eloquent career and people said how come that you're still doesn't have it as we picked it by hand you can pick a field of thousands of acres by hand Holt for them but the volunteers were happy there was one girl who might put to throw rocks of the field so that we could plan started on the park commission says it's somebody else is the north waterfront park alliance says Marion's is through the field it was an exciting project well so why was the mafia out for you and what kind of other on somebody else came and gave us the sole manual no right track people help and people love the field came fourth of July we were afraid and I have a forest for almost every country but do what I can but they let me do I designed it for years ago only the model was that a recapitulation of wheatfield well or how's it designed that for years ago the forest for New York and I don't know anyway thousand trees is what I had noted but it's it's a hundred and seventy five thousand trees actually there was one little dog that came at P. donate every day but that's all and it was his favorite place but nobody harmed people don't taxi to the wheatfield demand says would you like to see our wheatfield think is always a tourist and I said no thank you I've seen it suspicion at the shed you're kind of riffing on Wheatfield by planting a forest where proposal to plant forests in Queens how is the trump with me to Atlantic city for the weekend and I said no aren't you married and he said what does that do with it it's is there says sponsor ability and keep you know sending you from one place to another and frankly I don't I would they love is what people have to learn to trust the right people not to trust the wrong people so for your made now for the shed and I'm very happy that it was and it's not Hamas it hundred and thirty or how many trees take a reality not for me for New Yorkers and world I'm unimportant I think that's a really good place to end the interview it's really powerful they're going to run over it and because you know hundreds of thousands of people come to see fireworks all over the East River in those book says he had in the nineteen sixties he used his imagination to render them as news showing women like the absorb figuring new breeding comfortable in my own world immediate is at the shed in New York until the twenty second of March twenty twenty we'll be back in Amsterdam and delft after this arms resistant building city I was planting Whitfield they would've liked plenty of Whitfield instead probably I don the tension of the city place it's it's relaxing thinking it's an open area that not everybody has a chance to get into central following his nineteen ninety-three Guggenheim retrospective Roy Lichtenstein embarked on his new series the last great flowering before his death for years later but I wish it were a piece park and forest and if people see it I want to call attention to anybody who can have I am the police gave us barricades we barricaded the field all around not one person stepped on it not one report so this would be a real forest and will it actually be realized or are they have no idea I have so much trouble getting thank you thank you I absolutely he's alias work where Comic Book Images Taken Center Stage Liechtenstein revisited with a fresh eye things he'd explored over his long career new greeting which leads sprints multiple sale in Los Angeles this month is one of nine screen prints completed in one thousand nine hundred four as Bonhams director prints multiples in Los Angeles Maria Rosenberg stas which began at the product museum in Madrid this summer we interviewed the curator at that show in July the exhibitions opened in a slightly different form of the rights museum in at the end the pro decided to make sorts exhibition about that because the products in two thousand nineteen two hundred years I have the youth and the time to fight all these people who are against good ideas and wait for somebody else to do it for them if I get it the way I wanted but it's not just the trees it's a meeting place it's a piece for it's coming together place it's it's getting ready to this week we'll hear about two shows that have just opened in the Netherlands Rembrandt Velazquez at the Rights Museum MPG to her at the Museum Princeton Hof in dealt but I I don't know if it will get done or some develop over by it up and build condominiums on it I don't know got more visit dot com welcome back now regular listeners will know that we've been particularly interested in a touring show of Spanish and Dutch by Spaniard so for mere meets guests Maria meets Rembrandt zoo brand meet Sandra damp and on five occasions to artists in the title Rembrandt Velazquez The buy side I traveled to Amsterdam to see it and willow as there I spoke to Greg Faber the exhibitions curator Greco. How did the idea of the show come to you I think the idea to make a show together Spanish intouch paintings this was born in two thousand and four but so that the search for a really good show and this was a moment that we decided okay we do it also so there were some negotiation organizaion including six paintings by Alaska's which is really amazing so I think if you know troubling to the prod Auto Madrid Hamster dam where it's cold Rembrandt Bascus Dutch and Spanish masters the most striking difference is that in the rucks museum every single painting by Dutch master is paired with one planed Victor Stein had certainly inc need figures in his work before but in the nude series he made them the focal point for the first time while he drew very much on the female figures from assumes paintings and others anthrax needs a lot of Spanish paintings for the product so at the NBA got list of fourteen paintings Long ago before I started in the Wrexham assume and when I worked of course we had this office in Rahat we should do it we should do it and this of course with the museum I think two years two years ago to set the first steps because the product needs a lot of you will see some of the most important most famous paintings not into Gary is but they are here so this is of course very good but of course he proceeded to ask for more paintings from other institutions so at the end of the Proto but included forty-five more and other the the striking difference between the products presentation this summer and your presentation is here everything is paired in one way or another see on both paintings and both are so restricted in their imaging that everyone gets a point the subject is different going on and this is always very strong because immediately Baroda is looking from the other the other painting and then get lamb of God next to a Sandham of an interior of a church in one's mind these are these are utterly opposed in terms of images but the with other so there is a sort of dialogue sort of socratic dialogue where to Israel dialogues. Hey this is really interesting to see really hits you straight away in the exhibition because the very first pairing Zuber on painting agnus Dei lamp contrast Turt- by both speak very very hard about religion and this is what you see what you feed immediately and so they comment exhibition let's say the development of Spanish Dutch artist so no it's much better to show both as big columns next to each other Henry Image of the gesture with books from the product and from the rights museum the late Self Portrait as the Apostle Paul something in his mind because he bihota is the third party who take this what you see in words so there's something happening spa their concept beneath it is very very often the same so you there's sort of serene harmony between these paintings and I think why this method you get the point which is who is speaking now at the Spanish language speaking Dutch both say the me about some of the pairings and how you went about making those pairings now he thought that the pairings are stronger than to have a long row of ten paintings I think the essence of the land as a symbol of the passion of Christ so it is the accuracy and really the essence of calvinistic churches your mind and this is something which we stress in in this exhibition because it is very difficult maybe also not possible to to illustrate so always Spanish the Dutch painting pats to each other and then you know let them speak and they do it very very bad so our decision was caused a little bit the selection to have paintings each sorry to pay paintings which have something in common so mostly each other and the at each other's messes there's another intriguing pairing where we actually get rembrandt and Velasquez right together which brings together this extraorde if you see I think everyone immediately gets the point because the subject may different may be different but the this is a different pairing to the one that was in the product can you explain that difference yeah they're only to Paris be show here which had also been shown and links these paintings very very close to each other so there is a common link of course below the surface of the painting thing but I think would be doing here is very strong because it's about mankind to be saved very philosophical because this is the color or the fabric or something like that this is to help behold a bit and in the Produ- because they had two different concepts of exhibition and they also combined the episode powerless separate paramount with another painting it is such a restricted image only the lamp it's really before a black background and when the colors in gray and ochre so it is really things that struck me walking around the exhibition is the way that you're out the similarities or the thematic combinations so in some cases it might be about the fall of light ooh sorts of different elements of the paintings and get people to look in different ways right yeah thinking about the exhibition I thought that the main purpose picton this man not ridiculous absolutely not he depicts him as a series men and immediately as you get the same feeling now what does men what he's playing so there's a big Mac and his face because it's eyebrows are lifts it as a no upper pending on the history of art so emails the Church Interior painted past petition US only grey ochre and why so it is the same color scheme which you can I think for for the people then to make our religion and realism and sometimes they are coming very close to each other so the figures in the painting in others they might be in a sort of a connection in terms of the thematic content of of the paintings so you want to despite Velazquez and these men used to be caught gestures at the corner firm Phillips of fourth in Madrid and lots of Alaska's question to the beholder who I am what is your role playing in this moment and so on and next to it the portrait of the man up little entail a lot about these two countries and they're out I was struck by the fact that the very first painting that you see in the show which isn't the only painting which isn't is something which is made by God only then of course these two components allegiant realism are coming in very very close to each other so some of these using thing is by looking at these things suddenly the similarities began to begin to appear a very good example so there's still lamp the day we have only only we have twenty six flashlights on the relationship of Spanish Dutch art and with these twenty six Perez the Dutch in the in the battle against the Spanish people in the war against the Spanish people so it is the beginning of the exhibition you see him but himself at great risk I guess in a way a single way that you set the context of what's happening between Spain and the Dutch Republican time yeah of course it is really an extraordinary painting coming from a private collection in France and in the beginning I thought about include the exhibition also pairing but it took a long long way before we get to the yes that we could have the painting but there was no expert license in that sense because it's the best introduction painting I can imagine because it depicts a standard bearer and these people are let's say a symbol of the army there is a saint depicted realistic of course or if it's still obvious painted such in such a way that you think immediately nowadays a microcosms oh but it's one of the things about that painting is it's telling us that the countries were at war this is a standard bearer who was the person the man who wrote a head of the army and it is a portrait of a standard bearer by Rembrandt and extrordinary thing I mean I've I've never seen this in the flesh before and exquisite use of paint is remarkable and now we can get it only for three months so it was a little bit too late to have a good pair play it but the sometimes you have luck if you have only one painting great things about the exhibition is makes one again about the autistic languages the various painters for instance there's a pairing of another of the gestures from the painting on the one hand this is very jarring and difficult pairing because in a way you both figures were figures that were in some way objects of ridicule about how what I can do with this really really marvellous pending Alaska's business gesture he's wearing rats to Philip the fourth and again incredibly sensitive very humane portrait of the justice was known as El Primo and he's paired with a friend's house Kamara in the direction of regions Amora and indirection of realism but very often they are combined and we have no long story to tell next to each other I it is to solidify wonder because they didn't know each other there are they same dress is worn by the gist of Hans highlights and he shows this gesture with dark skin rethink that it is sort of something very very similar so I think only great artists could do that to paint such a beautiful composition together with such beautiful atmospheres of he painted his skin doc because his boss or two maybe we don't know why but maybe it was something which would be appropriate for just in time of and but also in terms of the language that the two painters us I've always sort of Alaska's penalties wonderful lightness of touch but when he's next house he's weightiness of his language the painting so familiar with US meeting here in the wreck Zam now in amongst the journalists here today we've already had discussions I use the same size the use of same manner the same pattern how to organized alliance on the painting the use to same light I would say so the you have immediately of course the image of the eighty year war which rembrandt painting the Senate still us it one of the under the sort of startling pairs which I think is features two of the great paintings of landscapes or in this case cityscape and landscape we have within isn't Rembrandt the great master knows and Velazquez. Do you have to plump for one or the other I always say do your eye exam but if you are looked at the airport at paramount he'll see that he is depicting himself as a pasta Toyota is a role player and he's paying Lind's and indeed in mainland Europe in Delft I met Anita Johnson who curated the show I'd like to begin by finding out a little bit of now after the Rights Museum I traveled to Delft where the exhibition Peter to Hook in Delft from the shadow of a mere has also just opened remarkably it's the first exhibition of the Hawks were in the ground about pizza to hook because he he didn't begin his life indentity no he was born in Rotterdam in sixteen twenty nine and the Brent Velazquez is it the wrong museum in Amsterdam until the nineteenth of January twenty twenty among the Madrid Ma so I don't think that there's some some of these better than the other one no quick thank you so much I think you MEDICI Velazquez next to the little street boy from me and again this is to painters whose language seems a world apart and here they are sitting next to each other one c hides so there's a link between both paintings that two persons one painted by Velasquez is of course really again very serious depiction of but that's not sure and I think it's far more plausible dead he may be alert some thing in Rotterdam but he started his career really arete close with yellow stripes on it and this is the dress often of a gesture from comedia- allowed to rebel and uh-huh what is what does this role in our playing there and the men are how both do it with a on both paint is coming out of the paintings of the harder making this Chris first time he shows up in Dell so when he documentaries is documented in delft is in sixteen fifty two in the literature it do these correspondences absolutely surprising to see these paintings streep Ephraim may anti view the garden in Roma by Velazquez in delft it could have been about sixteen fifty or sixty fifty two we're not sure but we think he started his career in Delft and tell me eight he makes a huge development and he starts looking at city and he's very route with mates dare drinking gambling a playing cards and so yeah that's going on there quite simple dark stabilized interiors and insiders interiors you see soldiers officers hanging paintings from six before sixteen fifty five you see now that these paintings are very bright what kind of what did he begin to make once he arrived here when he started his career he paints a what we call the hatch ish sort of early works in this exhibition because there is a massive shift that happens quite soon after heroes in depth what kind of what was he making early in his ears and in delft and beforehand and within a few years so we think that he painted discount of work still sixteen fifty five and between sixteen fifty five and sixty fifty avai tive in making courtyards he's the first painter who looks behind two houses so he darnold interiors but a really the courtyard so theft and was never done before and when you compare these paintings the shining the sunlight is going everywhere and it's very colorful and he greenhoff you see the town hole so he he really gives the city as a place in his work it's striking seeing on perspective and lights but they were specialize in other genre there were painting church interiors sad that he might have learned in Harlan it Nicholas bear hug or a lot of dumb at little too young capacity of that church painters into his own new genres and that's that's that's unique and and I was struck by these conventions as the things came in of course have awestruck also about the handling of paint of course but at first I was truck when it's a special role to the city of Dell so you see the monuments you see the towers of the new Church of the old church you see what is now museum man was shot size and the other one I've conservatives is very yeah just really he's laughing making jokes so there's another way how to do the time where where other artists of of his ilk also looking at light yes in in delved there was a lot going on at when you look at these this attention to light that you talk about throughout the show even in his later work to light seems like a huge concern was that an original thing and looking inside the church and looking at the working of the light and what's unique of Peter the hall is that he he he of course it looks at the church interiors he must have worked with that paint is must have seen that painters but he manages to change strange because nobody had done that before and nobody did it after so it's a unique

Clockwise 285: Hey, It's Capitalism!

"It's time for two hundred eighty five of the clockwise podcast from relay FM recorded Wednesday, March thirteenth two thousand nineteen clockwise four people four tech topics thirty minutes. Welcome back clockwise the tech podcast where we spring ahead f- in our. But I guess we do it twice Aymer co host and more. And and I am joined as always across the internet of ours. By my good friend and co host Mr. Mike sergeant how're you doing today? Mike, I'm doing well. I have to say though, you know, I often complain about math. But if there's one math, I dislike more than other maths. It's time math. As just I can't I can't figure it out. It's so complicated. I know I know adding to this. I I'm in Seattle. So I had to jet lag and get time changed. So really Lord. Everything's going great. Everything's going here. But we're here. We're here on our podcast with fantastic has guests this week to my left. It is a returning guest on clockwise and video designer at panic. It's christopher. Hi, krista. Hey, welcome back. Thanks. It's great to be here. And to my left is a an individual of many talents designer gamemaker writer works at panic. Who is it? Never mergen. Hello nevin. Hi there. It's great to be here with you. Right. I will kick things off today with apple expected to announce video and magazine subscription services in just over week. Are you feeling some subscription fatigue? How many video services you already? We subscribed to would Apple's take the place of one of those or just get added into the mix or maybe you thinking about trimming down all of your subscription services, altogether, Krista. What do you think? Oh, man. I definitely have too many subscriptions. I would love to trim out several of them. I feel like I already do that kind of a cyclically subscribed to Hulu and to HBO go or HBO now or whatever its name is these days just when shows I want to see our airing. I, you know, I subscribe. And then when those shows I enjoy watching are often, I unsubscribe he'll be great. If apple streaming service could provide the one feature that Netflix. Does not which I just would love as a parent, which is to hide chose on movies. From my children thinks that had don't want them to watch it. You don't like aren't bad. They're just kind of like not awesome in their kind of garbage. And just sort of like junk food. I would rather they not see. So anyway, I'm excited to see what? Apple's video streaming service will be magazine subscription thing. I'm not excited about it yet. But I tend to always get hyped up. Anyway, for whatever they now. So we will see. Yeah. I'm kind of the same way. When it, you know, these things I come out of my cou this is something new something exciting. We can try out to new services. But overall, I think I would agree. I guess it's not necessarily an agreement, but you asked about subscription fatigue. Certainly I'm sort of at that point right now as much as I am interested in all of these different services that I have currently I know I already have too much, and I don't know what it's going to look like adding more or if I should add more. So it's just going to depend on sort of what the value proposition is there, and what would be great is if subscribing to these means cutting back on some of the other ones that I have out there. So I'm hoping for that to where I can sort of cut back and not have to go on. Mystery hunt to figure out where this 399 charged came from this six ninety nine church came from this five ninety nine charge came from never what about you. I do feel bit of subscription fatigue, but also content fatigue. What I'm like pre exhausted about that. They went apple announces like forty new shows. And there's just this like, social and intellectual pressure that you know, I have to at least be somewhat familiar with all of them. And I'm like already scripting my answer about how no I haven't seen the show with Reese Witherspoon or the one with, you know, whoever. So it's it's going to be like it's gonna be a rough ride. It's like a new continent gets the scarred. That's all we talk about it for years. Yeah. I don't know we have to have we have to have some of these subscriptions for the kids because you know, they they want what they want is Apple's going to have enough content for them probably not at first. Maybe eventually, you know, Netflix definitely rules for them. So that one feels like it's not going away anytime soon. Maybe apples will be like the one that we end up agreeing on as the one that the family enjoys the most there's sort of a lot of rumors about the quality of content of apples. I feel like the names attached are amazing. So should be really good others shingle. Maybe it's not so good almost hoping. It's not good. Just so I can sort of justifiably say, oh, I don't watch those I duly with you content. Fatigues agree to put it. There's just so much out there and people are constantly asking like oh, have you seen this show? And I don't even know what service that's on. I've never heard of that. So yeah, it's it's overwhelming a little bit to think not only about paying all these these prices in having this sort of. Death thousand cuts like five year six year and eight there, but also just trying to keep up with everything. And especially feeling like I'm paying for this. Right. So I need to get my money's worth by consuming the content. I can't just it's like, you know, that gym membership problem where it's like, you just give them, you know, money month after month in like try really hard to make to the gym. Then you feel guilty. When you don't for me. I definitely feel like I have lost subscription services in their sign up for something. I totally forgot about it. And then like six months later, I realize of paying for it and not using it the whole time around so for for Apple's versus. I'm intrigued like never said, there's there's so many there's so much good talent attached to it that I feel like if the contents really good that's going to drive people in there. But at the same time, the idea that then I'll have like a six streaming service is really making me feel like why isn't there just one place where I can get all of the stuff I wanna watch. But I guess that is the new and somewhat depressing reality in which we live. Thanks for your thoughts on that. Let us go to our second topic, which comes from Krista. Great. Yeah. Well, speaking. Having too many things. So despite having a with things, which is now called health mate WI fi able to scale since about twenty ten or so are finally has actually been pretty slow in adopting this internet of things kind of lifestyle. But I think about Email like our technical device ecosystem in sort of like we haven't Amazon echo dot in the kitchen that I'm still not release. Hold on. We have a why fine able feeder we just bought a simply safe home security system. We have wifi nibbled outdoor light. So that we can time our holiday lights and stuff like that. You get the idea. So we're not even into home automation as much as some folks are. But it's just creeping in right apples home up. Does let you control some stuff. But of course, like, it doesn't work with a lot of things. So I'm wondering, do you think there will ever be a point at which we will be able to control the stuff from like one central hub or will the future? Just be like with the subscription. Just like a continual. Jumble different tech ecosystem for your TV in your microwave in your smart speaker in your. Lights than like all of these devices that make our lives easier just continued to add layers complication, or we just experienced sort of like the growing pains of still being in the early years of this. I o t stuff like what do you think is going to happen? I want to believe I want to believe that it is indeed just sort of growing pains, you know, ever since I got into smart home stuff, I've hoped and hoped and wished that there would be sort of the one platform to rule them, all and overtime. I feel home kit in the beginning sorta got a bad rap because it was pretty crummy in the beginning because of the the security requirements in the fact that there weren't a lot of third party companies wanting to make stuff for it. And that really led to there not being a lot of able. But over time apple is made some adjustments and more companies of hopped on board and so home kit genuinely for my needs has. Has become that one-size-fits-all blanket option for controlling the stuff in my house. There may be to gadgets to smart home things in my house that I can't use with home kit, but everything else, and that's great number of things works with home kit. I think that companies will continue to try to be the the sort of overarching option, but whether we are going to see that true sort of blanket option that takes care of everything I don't know because companies like control, and they like to make money and sort of having one company or one option that everybody agrees on. I mean, you can't find that with pretty much anything else. But regardless of those things I'm trying to keep a sunny disposition about it. And I'm very hopeful Nevin. What are your thoughts? When Matt graining was I. Introducing his new show futurama. He mentioned that part of those sort of the premise of it was that he thinks that the future is just going to get more complicated in junkier. He was saying how in Saifi often you have this vision of the future where whether it's utopia nerd stope. Ian, it's very uniform where like there's one world language one world government a uniform people wear like one drug everyone takes or something like that. And he was saying it's not going to be like that. It's just going to be more and more and more stuff and the old stuff is still going to be around. But were just gonna keep adding new stuff. And I think that's how this is going to go home, Kip is a standard sort of. And you know, others have their own standards. Belkin does. So you know, where one standard is good enough. You know, ten will also do so I just feel like that's the way it's going to go it's entirely possible to make a consumer choice. Like, you know, you said you did to say, okay, we'll find I'm gonna buy home kit stuff. That's my thing. Just like people used to like buy Ford. Like, that's the car. I buy. I don't eat the thing. About it too much. And that that's that might be just how it is in the future. You know, we are a home gift home. So that's what we do. I super doubt that there's going to be some sort of a grand, you know, system that covers everything because as you said nobody's really incentivized to do that. Yeah. I think the fragmentation part of it is I think kind of kind of par for the course, like, I think what we're going to look at is essentially a casus one where these these large tech companies Amazon's your goals Microsoft's your apples that are essentially making the standards, and then we're going to see a lot of the smaller companies that are building the actual. I o t devices probably either have to decide which standard am, I guess supporter, which standards going to support? So I have an echo I have couple home pods. I've got some home kit stuff. I've got some stuff that works with you know, the echo a lot of it nowadays seems like the the smaller device makers the IOT device makers are making stuff that they try to make interoperable. So it works with home kit. It works also with the echo am with Google home at cetera. And I think that's kind of the direction we're heading this probably gonna be some stuff that lurks around the edges that doesn't, you know, only works with home kit or only works with Amazon prime. Addicts at cetera. But I think a lot of people there's a vested interest in sort of the rising tide lifting all boats and having things be as is interoperable as compatible as possible, I think the the wildcard there are the companies that are really have a vested interest in doing their own IOT system in someone Belkin might be a player in that. But even they are trying to I think work more with all these big, you know, big protocols from the major tech companies because that's where the money's that's where people are investing in their in their sort of infrastructure level product. So I don't think we'll necessarily have one system to rule them all, but I do think that will have a few major players, and then support for those major players, you know, will be sort of percolated throughout the smaller players in the ecosystem Krista any last thoughts. Yeah. I know I like that. I like the idea of interoperability, and I think it's sort of unavoidable to have like you said just a few major players sort of setting the standards for everything just. To end up with like five different remotes for home entertainment system. You know, whatever the IOT a- equivalent for that is anyway, thanks, everyone for your thoughts on that. Excellent. Well, that is two topics down, which of course, means it is halftime here clockwise and this week's episode is brought to you by our friends at fresh books. Look everybody likes to save time.

So Spotify this morning filed a complaint with the European Union against apple Spotify alleges the company continues to give themselves an unfair advantage at every turn. This is specifically about apple music, and how competitors who tried to exist on the platform aren't getting the same treatment. So my question is pretty simple. I just would like to know your thoughts regarding spotify's argument, and sort of his overarching idea of apple allegedly not playing fair on their platform. I took a look at Spotify site this morning. So there's two components stood. There's the website, which is a PR move. It's meant for the average consumer to explain the situation for them to get sympathy from them. And then there's the lawsuit. I have no idea about the lawsuit. How well that's going to go. We'll see I think that you will probably be pretty opened the Spotify argument. They have in the past as for the website. I think it's clear it explains the situation. But it also to me looked a little bit childish and petulant, and I don't I think a lot of consumers will look at that and go. Yeah. Yeah. You're just complaining because you're a smaller company. So on will. We'll see how it goes personally. It's a it's a huge issue. You know, the the show monopoly in in tech. I do think that it's kind of con- a little bit far. I think about something like a local video store here in town called MUI madness where he can go, and you can pick up literally any move you can think of new or old. I mean, if you've ever heard of a movie you go in there. And you pay your two dollar rental fee, and you have to movie, and you take it home. And it's simply a place that's free of protecting their own content or having like legal infighting between two players out. There affect their catalog. Did just have it than you as the consumer can completely legally watch it now, and that's awesome. And I wish that more of modern like contemporary tech content was like that. Instead, you know, we have like a Roku manappl- TV, and I tend to prefer the the Roku as just as a as a, you know, as a box to us, but I can't watch Apple's content on it. And I just think it's kind of an annoying situation. And as a consumer don't care about the business incentives behind that. I just want to, you know, get what I want to get you know, if I paid for it just let me watch it. And that's I do wish that there were a little less of you know, monopoly going around. Spotify argument is one of those things that like everything it's neither a totally bad argument, nor to great argument. There are a lot of parts of it that that are that whole water. I do think that ever since apple has decided like not only retake sort of a thirty percent cut of apps on the app store. But we're also gonna charge that for people wanna make subscriptions or in-app purchases. It's gotten a lot tougher to support. And as the app industry has gotten larger and larger that thirty percent charge is starting to look more and more outsized in terms of what's being provided and certainly their issues of scale here, apple is maintaining a huge infrastructure for this and to take some cut out of it in order to sort of prop up the infrastructure is great, but they also have a sort of conflict of interest because they also want to grow their revenue in services, and basically being able to do that by charging a huge percentage. Well, not necessarily providing a lot of digital features is great for them. And not so great for the people who are on their platform. I agree with Evan that some of the stuff does come across his petulant a lot of the stuff about like, they keep changing the. Rules. Like, yes. There are definitely app store. Rules that have been problematic and enforced unevenly at times. But Spotify also has a vested interest in trying to find ways to get around those rules or loopholes through those rules. So there's blame to go around on both sides on that one. I do think having apple music, and then having a store on which competitors to apple music are sold is the kind of thing that the European Union is going to take a hard look at because that does kind of make you think well that clearly there are going to be competitive advantages for apple where it can use its product and leverage technologies that it's not going to let people on its platform do, and that's the kind of thing that the EU has traditionally taken kind of a not too much of a shine towards so I think that will be interesting to see how that shakes out. I don't think all of Spotify complaints have merit. But I think they have a couple of do. I agree. I I mean, I don't agree with with Spotify either. But I do think that it's just completely uneven an unfair obvi-. Asli apple themselves. Don't bear the same burden for their streaming music service that that Spotify does, but it's just the disorder selective enforcement of these rules. I mean, I think that that's really unfair different companies pay different fees or none at all. Like, I mean lift for example. I don't think peace thirty percent on its customers pay for their service. But anyway, so I I agree to agree with him in in part and just lay the abstract rules that do keep changing. And again, just unevenly enforced in terms of like linking outside promotions or other websites where you know ways to get the product on that's unfair, especially if you're Spotify, and you've sort of figured out your price point based on what the market will bear on. Then you have to increase it. But apple doesn't just makes it really uneven. But I also wanna point out here that like Spotify all of these streaming music services are also really unfair themselves like how they treat smaller musical artists whose music they stream. I mean, they just totally built those people basically it really sucks, but hey, it's gap. Eliza. Chris. Thank you for mentioning that. I agree with pretty much. What everyone's saying here. I think we all are kind of on the same line. There are some points that make sense and some points that don't make sense and some points that are just like well while while we're jabbing let me throw this in two. I think that the biggest thing here that I love to see sort of come out of this. It's that apple would just be more consistent about the the rules that it applies. So I'm hoping that through all of this. That's kind of the the big thing that comes out because it's not just big companies that have that complaint. It is also I've seen plenty of Indiana developers. And smaller groups talk about the inconsistency of apples rulings on those guidelines. And so if a big company filing a complaint with the EU to make it easier for whole developer. There's then I'm totally on board. All righty that takes care of that. Let's go ahead and move on to our last topic which comes from Nevin when I was young computers were new they were cool. And I liked thinking with them just think with them. I would see new machine I would explore its hardware. DO west was running in every program on it even ones they've been really need myself at all I liked the for lack of a better word, the medium of computers. The last time I remember doing this in my life was with your original iphone when I brought that home. I dug through all of it. I looked at like all the settings even the tedious network settings just hoping to spot a new kind of UI control or something new that they've done with computers. Eventually this excitement wore out some nowadays. I mostly used to -nology to like meet my creative goals or just accomplish everyday tasks. I'm wondering did you follow a similar arc in your relationship with acknowledgee where you went from sort of like the semblance machine? Just for fun nor customizing endlessly to just. Wanting you're writing after work. Well, so you can write what's in your head. Amen. I think there's a lot of different. I love this. There are so many different things going here. And I totally I totally feel this all the time, and there are a few different factors one. I think is my job has always been about looking at technology and basically poking into its details, and that gets fatiguing over time in that sort of plays into partout, which is that as technology progresses and becomes more and more part of our everyday lives. It loses some of its novelty. I imagine that the first people who were like flying planes for like, this is amazing. You know, plane nowadays all we do is complain about how tight the seats are and when the internet's not working, and we can't watch TV on our planes, right? Like as it becomes something. That is more expected and more part of daily life. We become sort of inured to it. And I think that's just a function of of how so many of those things work. And so those combination of all those factors definitely mean like because a computer or an iphone? Or tablet had become like tools that we use in our everyday lives. And we're just so accustomed to having them work and be the things that we need that. When a new one comes out, and we're like, well, does this really help me get what I'm trying to do like trying to get done any better. Like am. I've any better at writing things because I've got a new writing app on a new fancy laptop probably not so yeah, I think a lot of that is about novelty wearing off. But I definitely miss it, which is sad. But also, I think just kind of the way things go I definitely spent hours just sort of digging around into like weird like library like folders directories in like just looking at all of that stuff in the OS deeper levels. I never was a tinker in the sense of like taking something apart physically to see how it worked. I was just never one of those kids, but I do remember spending hours and hours just sort of like poking around and seeing what was buried in there, and like seeing how many different voices, I could hear, you know, isn't it? Nice to have a computer that will talk to you. And I do miss it. I think part of it is the I'm it is getting older, and it's not just at the novelty is wearing off. Although I do agree with you there that Dan, but it doesn't I don't have time. You know, like when I was a kid. I had these endless hours to sort of follow every curiosity in. You know, you have this sort of idol boredom time that you don't have when you become an adult, and you have, you know, pressing deadlines and jobs and responsibilities. And you know, when you're adulting you just can't be poking around in the in the library, directories and stuff. Yeah. I I think we all kind of feeling the same way about this, certainly when a new technology first comes out, I can remember when home kit, I came out, and I was digging around and all of the stuff all the code and looking into it, and in trying to find all the fun things that people were going to be able to do with it, and sort of the stuff that was vailable at the time and. When when they added like the ability for individual makers to create stuff with it so much fun. But after a while, it does just kind of become the okay now, I just kind of want this to work that was fun to get to know the whole thing. But if that's not going to be something, that's helpful for me every day. Then I don't really I don't really need to keep focusing on it that said, I think it can still be fun to sort of take that time to to tinker and find things that you want to play around with. So I do still tinker. But for the most part, it's just it's easier to sort of just let things work, and sort of know that you've already dug into it never any last thoughts on that. Yeah. There's that saying about how when you're young you have more time and money. And when you grow up, you have more money than time, and you start just like paying to have problems go away. I think the other thing is also that you know, my first computer was a Commodore sixty four and while I was not like super nerd about. It's still that was such such a simple small machine compared to anything today that it was feasible that someone like me could understand how it works for the most part whereas today like even Mike. Car which is not a computer has a computer, but that's not its primary purpose. Even my car has more settings in, you know. Switches knobs than I care to mess with. So I just don't, you know, you pay like forty thousand dollars for a car, and then you just sit in and I'm like, I just need to drive to a place. There's, you know, oh, these pages of settings on the touch screen or whatever. Just don't care as a kid had you given me that that would have been like a solid three months. Whole summer spent digging through all the cars settings. I hear that. All right. That is four topics. We have just enough time for a bonus topic. But before we do I'd like to turn it over to mica to tell us about our other sponsor this week. Yes. This episode of clockwise is brought to you by express VP in. We can probably all hold our hands up and admit cybercrime is something. We think happens to other people because who would want your data, right bad news is stealing data from people like you and me using public WI fi is one of the simplest ways for hackers to make money. If you leave your an internet connection unencrypted all the stuff that you type in is vulnerable on those public wifi networks, but there's something you can do to protect yourself from those folks you can start using express VPN express VPN works by securing and non ising your internet browsing. It encryption data and hides your public IP address and with easy. To use apps that run seamlessly in the background on all of your devices. You can turn on express VPN protection with just one click, and then you're free to safely, sir. Fund, public wifi without being snooped or having your personal data stolen. Express. VPN is rated the number one VPN service by tech radar, and it even comes with a thirty day money back guarantee, especially being was kind enough to provide us with some time using the app, and one of the things that surprised me was how available it is on so many different platforms.

Door Dinky Kandar. No but then I like I went back. A front of shop and I saw dismantlement sitting on a bench was that you have to believe what I was seeing. You think you're a movie scene in. It was a mess. Debate was informed of Jason so booth it went through the window of crystalline. That's the women didn't see it coming it. There is a ruthless person on the loose. What unnerves this community? The mouse is the randomness of the murders. Ordinary people doing ordinary things. All all the victims appear to have had in common each was shot to death by a single bullet be careful. These guys are using weapons that are going to go right straight through our bulletproof vests the massive man on continues but police admit they don't know who are what they're dealing with what their motive might be from from iheartradio and tender foot. TV THIS IS MONSTER DC sniper thirty four year old. Sarah Ramos was sitting on a bench in front of a Peruvian restaurant when the sniper shot and killed her this was now the second day of attacks Earlier that morning Sonny Buchanan and Prem Kumar Walla. Ker had both been shot and killed making Rama's third victim of the day. All of these shootings were horrifying and tragic. But for some reason this shooting in particular always stuck with me and when I visited the site of the murder it eight unsettled me. Oh boy she has. This feels a little off putting. We're sitting in the parking lot and this is where Sarah almost almost was killed. Sarah was thirty years old. She just gotten off a Boston. She was sitting on a bench. You know next to a post office and and as she was reading a book and she was shot she was just. I mean th the randomness of it and that's what really gets you about all of these killings killings you know you're essentially sitting duck. You have no way to defend yourself. No one did. No one did a woman sitting on a bench reading a book and how frigging cowardly is that. It's just the idea that she's just plucked off man and just like that's no regard guard for human life at all that's just that's literally target practice and they just drive away that just sorta brings home for me the depravity of all of it. The victim was laying on the bench with a sheet over her. That was horrible really. That's is the first one that I went to. My Name's John De Solis as a crime analyst for Montgomery County police lay called me To interview a witness who only spoke Spanish Juan Carlos. I think his name is when police I arrived at the crime scene. They found one Carlos via nearby. They don't know visas suspect if he's a witness he's probably around twenty two. I think typical a landscaper looking guy wherein you know landscaper uniform so I took him aside and started asking him questions. He was pretty clear that he didn't see where the shots came from. There's a There's an access access road that runs parallel to the parking lot. He was walking down that road and had actually passed the front of the store where she was sitting on on the bench and more or less as soon as he got past the leg. The corner where he could see her he heard the shot within a few seconds. He's all white box truck leave passed right by her then drove west up to Georgia Avenue. It would have been a drive-by shooting. Almost it was like five five seconds or something after he heard shots van left the scene. He was the only one that that was really close and he was the only one that saw any kind of vehicle vehicle and he described the box truck very well. You know to the point where it had like damage to the rear bumper via described a white box truck. Ah a delivery truck with a cab and separate cargo area. Police immediately started pulling over white box trucks and similar vehicles but finding that one truck in in the middle of DC's rush hour. Traffic was almost impossible. And will you know how many white box trucks there are out there. You're going to see at least two or three white vans or box. Trucks Wchs sitting in just about every parking lot in the country. My Name is David. C Reichenbach retired Lieutenant Maryland State. Police Reichenbach played wait a major role in the DC sniper investigation and he later wrote a book that detailed what was going on behind the scenes but nine thirty or so. I guess it was. I get a phone phone. Call from the Rockville Barrick. Dave I don't know what's going on here in Montgomery County but there's been a rash of shootings. Montgomery police are running running around like crazy. Looks like this modest started the night before. But we've got three bodies down and shooter out there and Montgomery County is is is asking for help. This could be the next terrorist attack. Can you get the state police rolling. If there's one thing that the Maryland airland state police can do. And it's actually by design. We can get two hundred to three hundred troopers any place in the state. Within a couple of hours our goal was to just simply flood the entire area with road troopers to supplement. Montgomery County. The troopers were coming in from all over the state and I'd brief him on what we knew which at that time was very very little We are looking for a couple of guys in a white box truck shooting shooting people. That's about what we knew. We didn't know if we had a single shooter. We didn't know if we had maybe. Multiple teams are troopers. Were stopping stopping every white van every white box truck near instructions. Were be careful because these guys are using weapons that are going to go right straight through. You are bulletproof. Vests a sniper case is about the worst kind of case you can have most homicides. The shooter has has some connection with the victim. Boyfriend girlfriend ticked off neighbor relative. There some sort of a connection that can be made this case we have nothing nothing a white van white box truck and a high speed bullet. That's all we had and spreading panic. We we had plenty of that. There have been a number of white vans all across this county that had been stopped by police officers a number of people calling in fact ax so many people that as Andrea mentioned they're inundating the system. Don't call nine one one unless you feel. You have solid information about a white box truck police. He's continued hunting for the white box truck. But the terror of October third was it over just an hour and twenty minutes after the Romo shooting and just eight miles all south on Connecticut Avenue the sniper struck again.

That's friends without the our best. I fiends now back to the episode. The fourth shooting on on October third took place at nine fifty eight am. Maria Welsh stumped by Safeway after dropping off her kids at school so I had come out of the grocery store literally. I remember just so vividly that the parking lot was completely empty. Very quiet was probably about ten o'clock in the morning and I just was loading the back Mike car up and got in the car and as I started the car and went to back out of my parking spot I heard this loud like top. The sloughed like kind of sound then. At that moment there was a gentleman walking behind my car. I remember like slamming on the brakes and saying Oh my goodness did I just just hit something and he says to me. No it came from in front of your car so as I was pulling up towards the main road which is Connecticut Avenue. I hear someone calling for help and I kinda look over and I see this woman. Next to the vacuum cleaner laying on the ground that woman Lori Ann Lewis Rivera had been cleaning cleaning her minivan using the gas stations vacuum now. She was lying on the pavement tangled in the vacuum cleaners hose. Maria Welsh a nurse jumped out of her car and raced over to help and as I was running towards her then I realized that I probably should have my cell phone in case I needed an ambulance attorney grabbed my cellphone and when I turned background towards her they look like she was having a seizure. I at the time knew nothing about any snipers shooting and I thought that something had happened with the vacuum like an electrical current of some sort so as I was approaching her. I couldn't really do anything because the vacuum cleaner still running. We always kind of learned that with electrical equipment. You don't WanNa touch the victim so I called nine one one article. It's Corden Riccar. You're watching what's coming out of her. Shell station personnel personnel answered. The phone said okay. Well do you know what happened. I said No. I don't know what happened. I heard this loud noise like a loud bang and she said what kind of noise do you think it is. I said I don't know like a bomb of some sort of kind of exam shot. We tried out. I said I've never heard a gunshot. And she said okay. Just sit tight. We'll send a navy lance to you and then the vacuum stopped. I do remember standing there being like. Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh we're GONNA do for her. What can I do for her? And at this point a small crowd had sort of gathered around me yelling like we have to do something you know. What's the matter with her? Do something and of course I make this big announcement like Okay okay I'm a nurse I'M GONNA I'm GONNA DO CPR. When I went to go pull the vacuum cleaner hose out from around her? She started bleeding from her mouth which then prevented enemy from doing any kind of mouth-to-mouth. So I just started doing chest compressions. No ambulance arrives. There is a fire station. That's less than than a quarter of a mile from the gas station that I can see and I'm thinking why are they not sending me anything. I'm like I need help. There's like a crowd now. Oh and we're all screaming. Where's the ambulance resemblance? I later did find out. They had told first responders not to respond yet until the area was secure and as a nurse. I can understand that. And you're trying to minimize the amount of casualties. You have you. Don't send everybody in but when you're in it felt felt like I was being hung out to dry there for a second within a few minutes. This man shows up in this little pickup truck with like tackle box of equipment. And he says I'm an EMT and I can help. W I say great. I don't know what's happened so at that point I start to notice that there's Swat team on top of the buildings across the street from us. There's agents everywhere. There have wrapped the entire area with like yellow tape. And they're now gathering people and telling them to go inside the gas station and this agent agent comes up to me and tells me I need to get inside the gas station quickly I was I. I don't understand I'm doing CPR. I'm a nurse and he says the. EMT's here he can do it. You go inside and and I'm like we really should be doing to persons CPR. And he's like I'll do it and tells me to get inside the gas station and I said I duNNo. Everyone's making such a big deal. This woman was vacuum. Your car like like what is going on. So now. We're all standing in the gas station. And I called my husband at the time and I said Gosh I'm so sorry I decided to stop at the Safeway before coming home and something happened with some woman Humira car and I ended up doing CPR so now the police are time you have to stay inside the gas station and then within like five minutes. He Calls Me Back Doc. And he's like okay. You need to get out of there. That woman was shot and I was like no she wasn't I think I would know if she'd been shot. I did see pure fun. There's no blood there's no gunshot. I don't know what you're talking about mind you. The bullet went through her back and then she fell backwards landed on her back. There was no exit wound so when we're doing CPR and chest compressions. There was nothing you can see at this point. I think it was an FBI. Agent comes in to take our statements and I remember asking. I said he'd cages. Tommy what happened with the woman was she shot and he said she was. I got a phone call. And that was one of the detectives he asked me you Nelson Rivera. I said yes and he said Laurie's wife. Yes she just got shot and you know for point now my life change completely. My name is Nelson Rivera and was married to Laurie and Lee Severe Iran Contra funders Central America. Campsie the United States. I you start going to the churches described literally send in. That's when I admit lower. She was a member of the church. She was sweet very sweet girl and I I fell in love with her. The funny part was I didn't speak no English at all so it was hard for me me to ask her out for a date but I figured it out as my older brother Sir. Can you call told her at wanted to take her out for dinner so he called her and she said Yeah I take her. Take this restaurant and I don't know what to say out. You know how to say which is weird and funny at the same time you know. I was just looking at her and she was just looking at me so after dinner. It was the buddy eight o'clock at night and front `was was the temple. The chief suspect Larry Saint and I know that word Mary and I asked her. Do you want to marry me and she told me. Are you crazy. It was crazy time. I was lucky. She took my Bach. We keep the dating for awhile. In the end we got Mary November twenty splurge and nine hundred ninety seven and Joe. Selena was born January nineteen ninety nine Lori. She was she was a good mom Giovanni always wanted to go to the pool and she always want mommy to take her. She was sold later but she still remember that. Mommy was taking her to the pool. And that's the only memory Jocelyn remember from her mom Morning before before I left to work it was something completely different than any other day. She was sleeping and I just stunning over there by the side of the bed for about five minutes then then I left so when I was driving. Run a o'clock in the morning. I was listening the news in the radio and I heard about people's being shot in Maryland and king was about close to nine o'clock. I got a phone call and that was one of the detectives and he has a you Nelson Rivera. I I said yes and he said you drive so yes somebody with you. I said yes. Oh and he told me. Can you pull over. I got something to toe you and but I wanted to lower. Yes she saw I pull over and He say lorries your wife Nsen. Yes she just got shot. I just get off of the truckin. I run across the street because I don't know what to do and I was slacking a car. Don't hit me or something even hard you know after her so many years. She says she was young. She which is twenty four years old you know. We drove back Kensington Maryland to that Shell gas station where she got shot in her blood was there was a lot of people. I was just wondering you know. My daughter was in the car and fifteen minute. Before the happened she dropped jostling offered the daycare site site ticker up and She was three years in a month. But I said I gotTa Talk to you that it was the most hard part for me to what I'm going to say you know. They're just not millions of things to come to my head Josephine Lean Mommy's he's not gonna be with US anymore. She's with heavenly father. Now she's GonNa Watch watch us from there. She's going to watch the whole time. That was not an easy thing to say it really really me. They impact your Salinas any holidays. Any mother's Day is just has been hard when she was young. You know she will say that. Daddy I just I just WanNa die is general to go with my mom is. She's in heaven events. I want to be in heaven with her. You know that was that was stadium for me every time when she was saying some like. I said it's not our time yet. Is that everybody is going to have their own time. And and she'll be waiting for us the kind of thing I was dealing with and now she's she's twenty there are some moments. You'll seem still miss her. Mom You know. It's not to say while Victims Families Grieve. The senseless loss of their loved ones. The police and the media were stepping into high gear. Here's former police. Lieutenant David Reichenbach again as word was getting out through the median everywhere mirror. The the panic was starting to set in many of the merchants out of fear have locked their doors and there are a leading customers in an out as necessary. There's a great deal of fear going on the few remember. This is back in the early days of Cable News so this was new for law enforcement to have to deal with a media that was twenty four seven causes some problems down the road because it was a learning curve. Not only I think for the media but also for us. There's a lot of concern since the shootings are so random and so so put that parents have wanted to go to the schools and pull their kids out little while ago. We heard from the local police captain. Charles Moose here's what he had to say. We have no information that this has anything to do with the schools. None of the victims have been of anything close to school age. None of the locations close to the schools. I think the school Goo kids are safe. They will be released under normal schedule. We won't create a situation of panic of traffic that at this point the police department is not capable of handling now. Certainly I can't arrest apparent that insist on going to school to get their kid. But please don't do. It doesn't help the situation at this point so so please the media if you can help me get that message out. Derek Lyles was a public information officer for Montgomery County Maryland. It was his job to manage relations between the media and the police dealing with the media on a case that attracted the attention of the country was a little bit overwhelming. They immediately at least showed up in our parking lot and just set up tents and in fact we call it a can't Moose. Those of us who are public information officers refer to how big event is is based upon how many chemical toilets are delivered and I believe this was a five seater so it was big. I'd go out and talk. Talk to the media to find out what they wanted to know and then come back to chief Moose and the others who were making the decisions about what was going to be said. We tried to tell the public everything we could about how to keep safe. Of course. There's things that we can't tell you because we're in the process of investigating it at this time that if we were to release the information early it might ruin everything. We didn't have a whole lot of information to tell the public so we tried to provide the best information we could to people. And what are those things was about the white panel van. Police have had little to go on. Only one witnesses description of white trucks. Speeding away from one mercy. Schoolchildren were kept indoors through the day away and police were on hand schools. Let out police admit they don't know who are what they're dealing with or what. Their motive might be the first big day. Hey It's like why Montgomery County who has a grudge. What are they trying to prove? That's Patrick mcnerney. The homicide detective. Who'd been assigned to the first murder outside the shoppers food warehouse now after four more shootings in Montgomery County? The case and potential motives looked very different. Who People worked for? The police department might be a little unhinged either current or retired. Let's find out where these people are actually put your hand on them and know where where they were during this timeframe and that was the first thing we did Kinda like in a wizard of Oz started very beginning of the yellow brick road. And you work your way Out that theory would be quickly thrown out that night at nine twenty pm. Investigators got there first indication that the snipers weren't we're just focused on Montgomery county the snipers had now moved into the nation's capital. Hi I'm Bobby Brown.

Or wherever you get your podcasts combined us. It was now nine twenty pm the night of October third after after laying low for almost twelve hours the snipers had just shot their fifth victim of the day and they'd crossed over the border and to Washington. DC The whole an emergency. We got out here on. I'm on the corner Georgia and breaking solemnly at the intersection in California O. K. L. Kim is a road northwest. I decided TACO goal mechanic. Keith greenware follow the victim. Pasquale low was a seventy two year old Haitian immigrant and a retired carpenter. He was standing on a street corner when shot Okay what you do to just got shot. He like they were breeding. Pascal Charlotte died less than an hour later later there were a few witnesses nearby when the shot rang out one reported seeing a sedan driving with its headlights off another saw a bright flash of of light but that was about it. No one had spotted the white box truck let alone its license plate the next morning Friday October fourth Maryland chief medical examiner autopsy the victims and extracted bullet fragments from their bodies. He sent them to Walter Dandridge junior on your forensic firearm examiner at the ATF. Lab in Maryland. It's not unusual for state and local to ask ATF to assist them with firearms related crimes. ATF In fact is the firearms police. Essentially my name is Walter Dandridge Junior I worked for the bureau alcohol tobacco firearms and explosives. Firearms have rifling cut into the barrel. And they're in a helical. Kohl twist within the barrel and so when the bullet is fired at rifling imparts a spin on the bullet. You see a quarterback throw a football in slow slow motion and has this tight spiral and his flying straight and true you want this tight. Spiral spin in order to maintain the stability of the Projectile Act. On a gun's rifling does more than at a spin to the bullet. It carves grooves into the sides of the bullet as well creating marks that a forensic firearm examiner like Dandridge Canalis Dandridge compared the bullets from different shootings against one another to see if they had been fired from the same gun so I stick one projectile on the left stage of the comparison microscope. And I'll stick the second projectile on the right stage of the microscope. And I'm looking through the eye piece and I can manipulate the bullets on each of those stages rotating them and looking at the microscopic marks I can raise the magnification to twenty twenty five thirty x and see those marks clearly if all of that is corresponding then we will call that an identification. which would indicate that they were fired from the same? Firearm Dandridge confirmed armed with everyone feared. All of the recovered. Bullets had been fired from the same high powered rifle. There was a sniper on the loose. Who'd killed one person on Wednesday October second and then five more on Thursday October third and now it was Friday October fourth and everyone everyone was on edge about what would happen next? Here's retired homicide. Detective mcnerney again was Friday. I just gotten in into the the office and my supervisor. Nick Carlo came to me. Says listen you need to get your papers together. You're going to Fredericksburg Virginia for a shooting. Outside of a Michael stand there. What is your mercy? Yes I am in front of Michael's and somebody's out here. We need some help. Okay what's going on. I'm not sure there was a loud crack. And she said she needs help. And she's lying. Down Inquest fee or Yeah I generally injured. She hurt herself. I'm not sure why we're allowed it. Looks like she's been shot. She's been shot. Yeah I I hope to come back and get my son at a car okay. We're getting somebody on the way pulled up and there was allowed ghetto gunshot. Did you see anything or anyone. You just heard it allowed top. I heard the call for help and I saw the car you read. My car. Didn't see the show. I noticed that a a car was screwing away but I did not see okay. No same thing. We were aware of the car sped away Chile process was okay. There was a man in it. What about the lady? That center around her right now. If you actually see the car now she didn't see in March forty three year old caroline see. Well was the seventh victim in just three days. She just finished a simple errand at Michael's and she was loading bag into her minivan. When a bullet pierced her back it tore through her liver and punctured her lung? But when detective mcnerney heard that this shooting like I took place at Michael's craft store. He perked up. Now we lease have some connection in. What are the connection between these two places and so this thing happens in spots Vania county in Virginia? My Supervisor Nick said listening at two helicopters waiting for over at the police academy and they'll take you down there that that was my big adventure to fly in a helicopter with the FBI. As detective mcnerney flew south to Fredericksburg Virginia. Caroline see well was Medevac North to a hospital in Fairfax matter of fact. Our helicopters crossed one another's path. On the way down there see well was rushed into emergency surgery and miraculously oculus. Louis she survived. Meanwhile mcnerney helicopter arrived in Fredericksburg. We landed right in the parking lot. Where the MICHAELS was is down there and when I went and talked to the managers place you know? What is your connection with Montgomery County? Oddly enough the same guy who set up the store store Montgomery County. Set up the store in Fredericksburg Virginia. Okay well now we have a connection. Then you know why would somebody want to shoot you or something at the store. And we're coming up with blanks on. That mcnerney was convinced that the crimes were connected but he'd need a bullet to prove it. The round was recovered bird or what was left of it. See well was putting stuff in the back of Van. Her arm was up pulling down the tailgate. When she was shot ought around went through her and stayed inside the rear of the van? I met with a sheriff explaining. This is what we have Montgomery County. What you're telling me here fits the things that we're looking for? And then there was discussion about. What are you going to do with the round and there's like well we'll we'll submit it? The Virginia State Police Police. And you know we'll get something back in a couple of months like let me make this offer to you. Sign the evidence over to me and I'll take a directly down to the ATF lab lab and they'll examine it. Hopefully within twenty four hours they ultimately said route. And fortunately for me the FBI stayed there with the helicopter after it was interesting though. This was a sniper helicopter old Huey on the way down here I can sit on the outboard seat looking out the window doors wide open but but on the way back. The guys had their night vision goggles on. And they're sitting on the seat like wow. I didn't know it would be targeted but Got Back there. I took the round to. ATF He had his lights and sirens on and the brakes were smoking when he reached the lab. That's forensic firearms examiner Walter Dandridge rich again. There is a lot of urgency during this time but the urgency wasn't at the sacrifice of quality. We didn't do anything different with the sniper investigation other than once we received the evidence we worked right through. If that meant working all night. We did that as opposed to quitting waiting after eight hours. The next morning decision was yes included in our case. Let's get the sheriff up here and do the press announcement so the weekend brought a break from the shootings and some wondered. If the spree had ended as quickly as it began. Police were working overtime. They interviewed employees from Michael's questioned white box truck owners and checked up on people who recently bought or sold rifles in the area area. But they didn't come up with any promising leads on Saturday October. Fifth Police said they had detained a man Robert Baker. The third who had been reported reported missing around the time of the shootings. He'd left his home in Montgomery County Maryland and taken with him a rifle that fired the same kind of bullets used in the attacks and reportedly he was affiliated with militia and white supremacist groups but after initial hopes he was connected to the attacks. Police ruled him out speaking to the Washington Post Montgomery County police chief. Charles Moose said quote. I would just like to express the fact that Mr Baker's vehicle is a dark blue. GMC pickup truck. It never has been wide never has been associated with the white box truck. We've been talking about uh the next day Sunday October. Sixth marked the first funeral for one of the victims. Prem Kumar Walla Ker. The taxi driver. Who'd been shot at the gas station? Carolina camera attended. She was the doctor who witnessed the shooting and gave Walla crecy PR. Dr It was very it was very emotional. Obviously very devastating to his family. They asked me what his final words were. I I I told them you know. Unfortunately he didn't have time to say any messages to his family and did rela- what had happened. And then they asked me to speak which I was quite shocked. They wanted me to speak. It was a very big funeral was in a church. Join the time that people were speaking. I had a few minutes to sit down and collect my thoughts and I did get up and speak. I remember saying that it was such a terrible waste of life. This is devastating. And I remember thinking I should try and say something villages because it wasn't church so I the only thing I could think of was a blessing to the family that God would turn his face to them shine in his light on them and give them peace. which is the priestly blessing and I said to the police liaison lady I said I don't want my face to be on television. They still hadn't found the snipers. I didn't want anybody to find me. You come to the house or anything in the evening.

There's concern there's panic and of course there's that I want to call it. The unrealistic thought thought process. Because I went through a two I was concerned about. My kid is my kid going to be a target and all this now the police side of me says that's that's just unrealistic and the odds are astronomical but dad part of me says hey my kid could be the next target I I guarantee you every parent certainly in Montgomery County and and now the district of Columbia were beginning to think the same thing how.

The Best Way To Invest In The Cannabis RevolutionWith Teeka Tiwari

"Welcome to the Mike Dillard podcast where we provide entrepreneurs like you with the knowledge and skills that you need to bring your dreams to life. Hey gang. This is not this week's podcast episode. This is a special bonus interview that I wanted to get out to everybody ace out because time is of the essence. So this week's normal podcast interview will be posted tomorrow. So if you've been getting my emails, this week, you know, that I've been extremely excited that my friend ticket Tori has spent the last year traveling around the world to find out the best way to invest in the cannabis revolution. That is currently taking place in the United States right now now before I dive into that, if you are not currently on the Email list, make sure that you are. That's where I put out the vast majority of my content might training might important communications and information all out the Email is go to Mike. Dillard dot com. There's an opt in right there on the homepage. You're gonna get Cameron heralds vivid vision class for free when you sign up and you're gonna get all the new podcast episodes come out and also the important announcements that I've been sending out like the one about what you're going to hear about today. So if you've been listening to the podcast for y. Tuban on the Email list, you know, that this is a topic that I'm extremely interested in, we've interviewed the founder of green man cannabis Christian Haggas. Seth we've also interviewed, Dr Mike Hart who's been on the Joe Rogan show. And his one of the biggest advocates in the world for the medicinal benefits that cannabis can provide. So right now, outside of crypto cannabis is the single best investment opportunity of our lives in my personal opinion. That's out there. But figuring out the best way to invest in that industry is not very clear at all unless you've grown up in the midst of it. I have some friends who have they are building wealth. That is unbelievable and unfathomable right now over the past few years. But if you haven't been involved at that level, it's a very difficult to figure out where to put your money, for example, should you invest in all of the farms that are actually growing, these plants should you invest in the processing and manufacturing facilities that produce the oils and all of the derivatives to do invest in the consumer brands that are star. To come out right now. Like, Dan bills areas ignite or should you invest in cannabis stock fund or an ETF the options are endless and just like crypto, you can make life changing money. But there's also a significant amount of risk involved, if you choose poorly. So the good news is that you can dramatically reduce that level of risk, when you do arm yourself with research, and with information, which is exactly what tika has done. So he has found the greatest point of leverage in this new industry. And in my humble opinion, you'd be incredibly foolish, not to invest just a tiny itty, bitty small amount of money in the cannabis industry right now. It's, it's like getting into crypto five years ago. It's like getting into the dot com bubble you know in nineteen ninety-five that's where the cannabis industry is. It's going to continue to grow by leaps and bounds. And you'd be nuts, not to participate in that in some form or fashion. So I asked him to jump on the phone with us today. Real quick. For an interview to help. Navigate the industry and to share what he has figured out now. In addition to this interview tonight, June twenty-sixth, you've only got a couple of hours, he's going to be holding a live webinar that's going to go into detail as far as what they discovered. And while I cannot say what that is specifically in public format before he does for legal reasons, I can tell you this. You're going to have the opportunity to participate in some private placement opportunities, alongside myself and the rest of his team in the cannabis industry. So, basically, we're going to be able to invest in the equivalent of cannabis startups, like most VC's do when it comes to Silicon Valley startups. Now, one of the last time he invested in one of these private placements deals over the last year, he turned one thousand dollars into one point six million dollars, so that is the kind of opportunity that we're looking at. So if this is an area of interest for you as it is, for me, go head to Palm Beach goes green dot com and you'll be able to register. For tonight's live webinar. I do not know if they're going to have a replay, he didn't tell me that. I don't have the answer. So my suggestion is go to Palm Beach goes, green dot com. Registered for the webinar. I'll be on there. Checking it out as well. I do know that these types of private placement deals are definitely limited in nature. This is not something that's going to be opening available to everybody. So if this is something, you're interested in make sure on the webinar and make sure that the front of the line whenever they offer whatever they're going to offer. I know I'm going to be an again, guys, you can register it, Palm Beach goes green at dot com to check it out. You need to pause this recording. Pull up your web browser to do that right now. We'll it's on the top of your mind do that. And then right now, we'll get back to this amazing interview with ticket Tori on taking advantage of the green, rush. That is taking place right now in the United States ticket, Tori. It is a pleasure to finally have you back here on the podcast, my friend. How are you doing? I'm doing great man. It's wonderful to be here. I want to thank you for the invite. Yeah, absolutely. So you and I have known each. For a couple years now through our mutual involvement in the crypto space, and the work that you guys have done the research that you've produced around that, that I've been able to follow the last couple of years has been absolutely amazing. I think you guys have the best research out there that I found when it comes to the crypto industry. So thank you for your work around that space and today, I'm super excited because you've decided to dive headfirst into another industry that I've had a big interest in for a couple of years now, which is the cannabis industry, but I have not been able to quite figure out the best way to approach that industry as an investor. And before we dive in real quick. I want to give people some context outside of crypto. This is the single biggest revolution. That's taking over the United States, specifically and the world. And it's a brand new opportunity and a brand new industry. So the opportunity is massive. It's a once in a lifetime deal wants cannabis's legal. It's legal in the opportunity is gone. And I interviewed Chris Haggas Seth last year. Boo is the founder of Greenman cannabis, they're one of the fastest growing retail cannabis franchises out there. And on that interview, one of my biggest questions in desires was to try to figure out what is the best way to invest in the cannabis industry. Where's the greatest point of leverage, because there are dozens of different options and I couldn't quite figure that out. And then I find out, you guys are coming out with Palm Beach goes green, and you've spent the last I don't know. You'll tell us here in a minute significant amount of time, traveling the world in dive into the canvas industry in extreme detail to really answer the exact same question. So I'm Superstock. Thank you for taking the time to do all the hard work for me. And everybody watching listening to this. I appreciate it. So at this point handed over you. Let's talk about how you took an interest in the cannabis industry in general. I enforced sure. I've been following cannabis for the last few years. But to me, it was always a very niche market, and it just didn't excite me. I get excited by large massive multi year trends that can really move the needle on my net worth in the net worth of my of my readers. So it wasn't until December of last year. When the farm Bill passed President Trump past the farm, Bill. So in that Bill was tucked away a little section that legalized, a full of cannabis, and it also by doing that legalized derivatives of that cannabis, and I'll get into that is in just a moment. So I said, okay. That's really interesting. And then the next piece that I saw that really got the light bulb going in saying, hey, to worry, you've got a just devote your attention getting diving deep into this was I so major blue chip corporations ponying up, not millions. Not. Hundreds of millions. But billions of dollars right out tra- comes in one point eight billion dollars. Investing in tiny company, trying to get a foothold in this space, and then constellation brands the maker of, of a ton of different beers escapes me brought at the top of my head, but they invest four billion dollars. Novartis one hundred eighty five billion dollar conservative Swiss pharmaceutical company starts investing into the space. I say okay, now, I've got to stop paying attention. So what I found with every major. Boom is that very often people will invest in the wrong section of the boom, looking for huge profits. And I saw that in crypto. You know, when I first got started in recommending crypto people were talking about all these crazy coins, I said, look, bitcoins, four hundred just by a bunch of bitcoin, right at Therion seven by bunch of theory. Right. These I can tell you, these two. Names are going to be the survivors. Yes, they'll be time for smaller names later. But now in this stage of where we are these are the two you wanna buy. So now I look at this market, and I see all this money flowing into recreational cannabis, right to the cannabis that gets you high. They're certainly going to be money made in the recreational cannabis market Mike, but just like the dot com, boom, give got thousands of companies coming into this area. And at the end of the day, they'll may be be three to five out of the thousands that actually make it and the other problem with it is, it's not legal in the United States is only eleven states and DC where it's legal. So yes, at some point, it will become legal here when will that be could be five years could be seven years, it could be ten years. We don't know. So what I did was I said, okay, that's interesting. But where's the bigger play? And so the bigger play. Is in is in legal marijuana, the kind of marijuana doesn't get you high. And that's cold hemp, and this derivative of head, cold, Canepa, dial, or CBD, an so CBD is perfectly legal. It's a derivative of the hemp plant, and it has these incredible properties. Right. So anti-anxiety veterans are using it to deal with PTSD anti inflammation, people using authorize paying using it to be able to go to sleep, the using it to get a Benza and opioids. I mean, I hate to use the word miracle drug because that word his so overused. But if it's not a miracle drug, it's freaking amazing. What, what this, what CBD is doing is amazing. And it doesn't have any side effects. You don't need to go through an insurance company combined over the counter and see these about to explode. And so if you look at market to the being. Disrupted, the legal recreational marijuana market. And let's, let's show in the black market to about one hundred sixty billion dollar year business, something like that it's not an inconsiderable business. But if you look at the legal marijuana business, civically, CBD Merrill, Lynch is projecting? It's going to disrupt two point six trillion dollars with this. Yeah. Right. So each or fifteen x bigger, right? So I mean it does not to be a rocket scientist to figure okay. It's legal. It's fifteen times bigger than the illegal business. The US government and the even the postal service in the IRS and the states all have a full complete legal regulatory framework for it. I'm gonna put my money over here. So this is where we've been focusing on in that area and not just on CBD, but there are these different compounds at a part of the of the marijuana plant. They're called candidates in about one hundred of them, and these cannabinoid Mike car during credible. So you've got certain cannabinoid that can eliminate your desire to eat. So you look at the healthcare industry in America, the, the wellness white loss. It's, it's to be anywhere from seventy to a hundred billion dollars a year were spending on weightless devices to don't, don't work. You got millions of Americans suffering from abusively hundreds of thousands of them dying a year to cardiovascular issues because of the way they eat. Now imagine if you have this cannabinoid pill that's been isolated down into a full that you can take it and you don't have to use willpower anymore. You just hungry. That's a vehicle drag that. Yeah. In, there's no, there's no side effects. We had Dr my cart on the show, a couple of months ago, who's one of the best known CD experts out there. He's been on the Joe Rogan podcast recently talking about see. CD cannabis in the health benefits and yeah, I take it every day. Now, it's like why wouldn't you? It has so many ositive properties anticancer properties anti-inflammatory properties. There's no reason not to take it the benefits the downside are completely symmetric. And I'm starting to see cans of soda like sugar, free health, healthy sodas, if you will with the oil in it now in my local supermarket. So it's going to be an everything here soon. It's gonna be by the end of the year. It's gonna be in hundreds of thousands of products all over the United States. Walgreens Kroger's Dillard, CVS Rite Aid target, they're all going to be carrying these products. And so part of what I do is not only okay? Let's identify this trend it. Let's also identify way to profit from it. And so what I've done is I've actually found a way to profit from this trend. That's very different from anything I've ever talked about before. Four it's an approach that I used to make millions of dollars personally, but it's never been open to the public. So we found a way that the public can get access to this. And it's, it's crypto like returns, but obviously not investing in crypto. It's, it's very exciting. Let's talk about the research that you've done because I know you've been traveling all over the place to really get to the source of this industry to figure out that point of leverage, which is what I was referring to earlier, because I'm like, do you, do you invest at the grow level like with farms do invest in the processing level? Do you invest in retail brands? You know, right now, one of the biggest opportunities is that CD products are still not allowed on Amazon yet and ciampa fi. And that's about to change. It's ironic. You can sell hemp products. But if you call it CBD, it's not that's going to change here soon. And so I've got a bunch of friends who are developing retail CD oil. And they're just waiting for Amazon to flip the switch to green. And it's just gonna be unbelievable. It's gonna blow so it will be unbelievable. And one of the things that I looked at was CBD production, so CBD their enormous amount of CBD produces, the grow ham, hind CBD in the United States, and in Canada, but their cost structure is very, very hot, right? It's very, very high. What what will happen is whenever you grow crop. It's a commodity, right? So the lowest cost producer wins when you're talking about non branded CBD needed for CBD oils. Right. The input the input to make the CBD oil. So one of the things that I did was I discovered a group that is tied in with the largest citrus producer in Columbia, and I flew down to Columbia and what I found is that Colombia is now the lowest. Cost producer of CBD in the world. Nobody can come close. We're talking about ten cents Graham. Right. Which is unbelievably cheap the cheapest marijuana producer in Canada. That I know of is probably about a dollar six dollar eighty six gram and the average marijuana grower in Canada is around six or seven dollars gram. So then the CBD costs even with outdoor grow in America, they can't get off for under two three bucks. Graham so going down. What I realized is that Colombia is going to be the world's factory floor for a box, and they're actually working with Germany to get what's called a G, M P designation. So they can actually will be EU compliant, and so they can sell to the EU. So part of what I did was I flew down to Bogota, then took the. Private jet up to book among with his form farmers and unbeknownst to me, the Colombian government have found out that I was going there. And they insisted that I have an armed escort while I get there, and there's eight heavily armed and armored police officers, this big guy comes stands right next to me. He's got body armor on. And he's carrying a bullet proof vest in his job is to keep me alive. Like if it goes down his job. Now, vets dot can make sure I'm alive. So they put us in these armored vehicles Toyota land, cruisers, you know, with glass like that thick at I gotta take Colombia, many times, I've never had a problem in Columbia, ever. It's been very, very safe for me. Of course, you know, you don't go around flashing watch or jewelry. He's got to be sensible. You can't have your phone. Just like this just be sensible. It's like New York City in the eighties, right Saturday. They. The Colombian government really wants to make sure that foreign capital is protected and they, they are really all in on producing a CB date. Johnny was with this group, and we went up this mountain, and imagine a mountain twenty two hundred hectares massive right about four thousand feet up. Covered in pineapple groves in pine trees, all of it is going to be replanted with CB old them. Right. So when I saw that, and I saw the, the Colombian government how they're getting behind this. I realized okay this incredible opportunity here. So I did that and then I went up to Canada, and I looked at the this is completely different operation now, you know, sixty million dollar indoor grow rooms. Right. Grow glowing, high THC marijuana very, very different model Canada's very interesting. But not every Canadian stock to me is. Interesting. I'm more interested in the Canadian companies that are looking at creating synthetic CB and synthetic a cabin once because to me that's where the money's going to be. If you could create a synthetic cabinet, let's say one T, H CV, which is one that has appetite suppressant, qualities to it. If you can create that at scale pharma companies will buy by in size, and they'll pay huge money for, you know, twenty thirty forty thousand dollars a kilo for because it's so difficult to make. And you'll see this incredible boom in a cannabinoid related drugs. And it'll be the small companies that either get bought out over the turn out to be the Amgen's of tomorrow. So it's the space is just full of so much opportunity. Right now. What are you, what do you think about some of the stock? That are, are starting to go public out there in this space. Is it in the valuations that some companies are getting, I think, Dan bills areas, ignite company evaluation is in the tens of billions of dollars? Already what are your general thoughts on? It's insane. It's crazy. But again it's like any, it's any boom. It gets out of hand, whether it was a crypto boom in thirteen of crypto, boom in seventeen or, or the equity boom in the nineteen ninety eight ninety nine two thousand with dot com. Boom, you know that's where we all right now. And this is what I want to warn investors about, right? Like you've got companies there that have multibillion dollar market cats to have seven million dollars a year in revenue. It's not worth it. Right. Be patient. When the bust happens. That's when I'll be looking at the recreational marijuana stays the pure play recreational marijuana space because that's when you'll find the Amazon the EBay, the Expedia of that market right now. If you're a momentum play wanna have fun, day trade, those names, go for it, but in terms of allocating capital that you wanna keep through through the cycle. I think they're a much better opportunities in the in the legal cannabis space at in the space of. Where companies are developing synthetic cabinets. So this, this coming week, I believe it's June twenty six you guys are going to be doing a big live webinar fuel talking about what you've figured out and how you're going to play this market. You guys can go to Palm Beach goes green dot com and make sure that you've got a link to that or go to the show notes for this below and I'll put a link to to that live castle. People can attend in watch that what are you guys going to be talking about during that session? So we're going to be I like to make these events vary. Educational rights people come to this idea of marijuana for the last eight years in the United States. We've been told it's the devils lettuce. There's there's no nothing of this. No redeemable qualities to it whatsoever. And that's a lie and Michael audience. Mike is older, very conservative Americans. And they see me talking about marijuana. And they wonder if I've lost my. Mind. And remember, I been very anti-marijuana the most of my life because I bought into a lot of these full side is brainwashed by tobacco companies. Right. Right. Right. So, so what I'm gonna do, I is really talked to people about any prejudices, they might have and tried to deal with that, and have them really share some of the things that I've learned that have transformed the way that I'm doing myspace. And then I'm going to talk about the work that I've done the places that I've gone, and most importantly, I'm going to talk about a new way that I have found to profit in its way to profit that can deliver crypto like returns. But without obviously investing in crypto. It's dramatic. It's, it's, it's life changing wealth without already having to be rich. And that's what I loved about. Crypto, I love crypto, because crypto was something we didn't have to be rich in order to make a lot of money in a Nisus true. With this. Tick, your investment niche should I found in, in legal cannibus? What kind of time line? Are you are? You expecting to see the growth, take place. Is this a five-year play is at a year or two years? What are you, what, are you looking at? I think of Celeste talk about the, the actual growth of the industry. And then let's talk about equity valuations, right as two things. So the growth of the industry. This is like a fifteen twenty year Trent. Yeah. This is just gonna continue. But like any trend. It will have boom and busts. Right. Just like the early stage technology trend just like crypto, so in terms of where we are in the market trend right now. The market trend is just beginning. And I think we will have a three year bull market with, with a mania face. Probably sometime next year right next year will be active drawer in quivalent. It'll probably be like twenty seventeen. Crypto might so this year. Everybody's getting educated. Everybody's just finding out about it. Everybody's realizing hey, you know what? This isn't the devils lettuce. Hey, grandma's use in this and it's changing her life. Hey, I combine this in WalMart. And then as we go into next year. Mainly is going to happen. And then you're going to see this explosion in equity, valuations across the board in, you know, we're obviously going to do our best to capture as much of that as possible. Yeah. You know, obviously might might might primary question here is what's your play? But that's what you're going to talking about on the so I don't I don't wanna ruin that you guys have been putting, you know, again months and months of research into this. So I will definitely be there watching watching and can't wait to see what you guys have discovered, what are some of the, the biggest words of wisdom, you can share with folks when, again, it comes to take your time be concerned about these potential, bad ideas. If you will bad investment opportunities out there, that was one of the things we talked about on the podcast with Chris is when I go to Denver. There's a dispensary on every other corner. Right. And they're having a hard time staying in business reader consolidating. They're being bought up, or, or they're closing shop, because there's just so much competition, and that's going to happen in every market, as I mean, gosh, living in Austin, Texas, once it's legalized here, they're going to be dispensaries everywhere. And I don't necessarily think that's the right play or approach to to getting highest returns in this industry. So what are your words of, of caution, and based on what you've seen in the past in different industries? So, yeah. So I'm seeing a tremendous amount of Malan vestment, which is being papered over, because people are so excited about the space, so definitely have to be cautious of that. Just because something has a name brand that you see a lot doesn't mean that it's actually going to be well run organization. One of the survivors also, if you're going to pick your own stocks, take a look at the at the cap table, how many shares outstanding where the inside his own the shares? How many have they been just constantly giving themselves paper like be aware of that? And the other thing that I always say, no let the game. Come to you, if you if you don't wanna work with me. That's fine. If you wanna do it by yourself than I would say, be willing to put in the work. And if, if these things are too expensive, be patient. Remember this is going to be a boom bust cycle for for years, where it's going to be boom, bust for years. So when I say let the game come to you pick the names that you like figure out the prices where you wanna get lung. And then just white, right? Because if you wait, these stock prices will come in, and they will come back to you at a decent level. Don't buy into the hype right? Dan bills area in this or this, this famous guy that very often. And I'm not saying anything negative about Dan and his operation. I know nothing about it. But very often these types of companies have a lot of marketing, but very little execution ability. Right. That got great marketers, great PR. But they don't necessarily have a deep bench of guys that can actually execute in the space. Well enough. Opportunity for you to invest. You know, I mean he's not taking on on investor money at this point. He'll go public. I'm sure and a few years, and then the upturn of the over right? So very good. So again, the, the Tele seminars going to be on June twenty six and again, I'll put the time the link for you guys that you can attend that any final words of wisdom tika about the subject to on again. I'm just super super excited about this. This is an industry, my friends in Colorado, and I have been talking about for years, figuring out how to get involved, and there's a dozen different ways. But I only think that one or two are actually going to be smart. I don't know enough about the industry to to know which ones are going to be the biggest points of leverage. So again, I'm thrilled that you and your team got involved in this. You guys do such a great job when it comes to research, again, traveling all around the world getting your boots on the ground seen everything in person that just is a giant green easy button for myself and. For everybody else who would like to get involved in the space watching this. Thank you again, for that, then any last any words. Yeah. Thank you might. Yeah. I, I would say that, that the opportunity is vast and that you need to get exposure to the cannabis space.
