There's a great shot of the voight swim fins as he ascends but just as mike breaks the surface he's confronted with an armed boat of officials who are pointing their guns at him and asking him if he would be so good to come on board what to do. Quick thinking mike takes a fix on his position and drops the pouch. Who are these armed men. The guy in charge is colonel ramirez and he is the head of the coastal defense. He's cold and tough and goes over. Mike's gear with a fine toothcomb. Just then mike's friend. Paul alexander pulls up with their boat. He tells mikey sorry. That he drifted. The boat drifted off process that they are on vacation. And he's from dallas texas. Colonel ramirez tells them that they are not to dive on the downed airplane at an at the penalty by order of the dictator row. All as is that they will be immediately deported. They are welcome to fish. Just stay away from the airplane. So now paul and mike are on the bridget or boat and paul is upset about the diving when might tells him he found the pouch but he had to drop it. He says he took a position. And we'll be able to find it. But how will that be possible with the colonel watching pause. Got a plan. But mike wants to know i. Where did he get that phony. Southern accent well. Paul's plan involves dragging mike to a local cantina. The club kellyanne. Tae sign is flashing on and off as they enter once inside. They sit down in the bartender heads over the jukebox. A stereo phonic rockall roller and plays a record loudly before waiting on and paul. Something's the bartender nods and mike and pau get up and head for the back room. The ace of pulse leave is one of colonel ramirez. Deputy familiaux who calls the kernel. A pig who goes beyond the law familiar will fight with his fingertips to overthrow the hated dictator. The plane is to get. The plan is to get information from familiaux on whether the colonel is going to put a diver on the wrecked plane. Now the the scene shifts to mike and paul on the water and they're trying to get to the wreck but they're constantly being pursued by the coastal defense. Just then shots are fired from the defense boat. And they're colonel comes alongside and tells them that the penalty for diving on. The wreck is no longer deportation. It's death before they leave familiar hotels. Mike and paul that they are going to have another diver coming from the capital. Soon we now had back to the cantina. We're familiar comes in the bartender. Nods towards the back room in the room familiar hotels mike composite. The situation is desperate. what can they do. Mike knows he will be an underwater hitchhiker. But only familiar can drop a line over the side of the colonels boat you see. Mike can swim to the rack but he needs a ride back. Familiaux says it will be done. So now we have paul mike on their boat watching a coastal defence boat with its diver onboard and her headed out to the wreck plane. Mike tells paul if anything happens he needs to get out of there because he's too valuable. Paul reluctantly agrees as mike. Put the powder into his wetsuit top. Once the divers from the colonel Once the diver from the kernels boot jumps in. Mike is in the water swimming towards where he dropped the pouch. He sees the line. Familial has tossed over the side but now he needs to pop to the surface to get his bearings so he can find the diplomatic pouch just before the men on the boat turn towards mike. He slips beneath the surface a close call. Mike is now underwater searching and searching trying to find the pouch before the enemy divers season. Finally he spots the pouch intact and now he needs to get it out now. Here's where it gets a little strange. Mike is kneeling on the bottom looking at the patch. Trying to figure out and then like maybe how to open it or something. He's got a puzzled look on his face. His back is towards the plane wreck. As he's puzzling over the pouch the enemy divers spots him pulls out his knife and be lines towards mike as he tries to stab. Mike looks like the pouch gets in the way we are now witnessed to a classic underwater knife flight where mike wrestles do knife out of the bad guys hand takes out his own life and you guessed it cuts who's hose. The enemy divers forced to the surface and mike heads under the colonel's boat too high policies the diver surface in figures. There's a problem so he starts to head out. Mike is trying to figure out what to do with the diplomatic pouch when he decides to stick between his back and his doubles now. The colonel suspects that mike is with paul so he starts out in hot pursuit. Mike grabs the line and his underwater hitchhiking begins. The ride is challenging. You can see the strain on his double hose thins. Just as he's about to let go the boat slows down and pulls alongside. Paul familiar searches the boat and said no one is aboard. Paul says he just wants to go home as this is no place for a vacation. That colonel tells them to get out of his country. Once colonel leaves. Paul is despondent at the thought of losing mike just any. Here's mike call out. I think i heard him call pau. Alex i'm not sure. But as paul looks over the side mike tosses up the diplomatic pouch telling him. He forgot his laundry. Mike has yet again the day now.

"Song? Oh, it's just the Elton John. It's Dale Dan, but you're on the air. Is this the bitches back? No. What the fuck's on is this? It was Elton John. And you hit the poster. Barrel, I bail out of the airplane, right? The last second. What is it? Where's the bitches back? Bitch is back. It's been too long since I did this. Well, that's what she did. Last night. That was good. That's like working though. Now I feel like it's just some work. You know, because you had to be you had to be right there in between the records and you had to get it right the first time because it was live radio. And sometimes that POP they'd give you, you gotta do a weather at 22 after. And you'd say, well, I've got a 7 second intro. There used to be a guy on wvf years ago named bud ballou. Wv Framingham Boston. That guy you could throw any song at him and he came up with the most creative things to say. You don't know where he's coming from. Always hit the post. It was amazing. But I didn't get three minutes between each record and knowing what the next record is and how long the intro to be able. It's much more difficult off the cuff. As long as you know what the song is. You want to try them again now that you know what they are? No, because that would be too easy. Oh. Yeah, that would be too easy. We'll come up with some more for next week. All right. Hitting the post here on the program. Did I mention, yes, I did. Did I mention doctor Leonard? Did I mention a vinia Josh? At least we did the part of the program that's the most important. And I did mention my friend pecker had coy, right? Yes, you did. Okay, well, let's get into a couple of weird nightmares ahead. This is these are real live nightmares. Why are you checking your watch, Ben? Because Joe Biden at a funeral? This is like the longest episode we've ever done already. How long is it? It looks like 43 minutes Mike. I will get this done. 'cause I gotta go to price chopper. We'll get this done. Good in a shift. I was on the phone with CVS for 45 minutes. Longer than this podcast. I called up they sent me a text or your prescriptions. I have a question, which one is it or whatever? So I call them and it says an associate will be with you right away as soon as possible. And then hold them on hold 20 minutes later. Okay, hang up. I call them back. I'm on hold for 20 more minutes. This is awful. What does thank God it's not something important. I got recycled into this machine. And every minute they're saying. If you need to have your COVID vaccine and every minute they have so I heard it 40 times basically in 40 minutes. Awful. And I think CVS a big company, they're making a lot of money. They got a lot of locations. You know, they're huge. They can't have somebody answering the phone. Drugstore? Anyway, so I wanted to complain about that. And I will never go there again. I won't. Shelter means it is. It doesn't matter. Ed's drug store I'll go to. I don't give a shit. It has a drug store? Yep. Good one, too. He'd only put you on hold for 15 minutes. He's a gentleman. The other thing I want to mention is my cable company is spectrum. Yes. They're the fucking words. They are absolutely pathetic. I know, I have them too. In every way shape or form. It doesn't matter what you're trying to get done with them. They suck. And they run their own commercials all spectrum get mobile. Yeah, I'm going to get your mobile service. I have the way you take care of my home cable, you dorks. What's your main complaint? Well, first of all, when you're watching a show in the middle of the it'll go. Whether alert for something that isn't even in your county, you know, it's New Hampshire as flood warning for northern Vermont. This station is conducting a test that has been responsive weekly testing. You want to just strangle everybody in sight. Do you know who their big celebrity endorser was for the longest time? Fucking Ellen. That should tell you right there. See? Ellen. I can't stand her. Yeah, so I hate spectrum and I have it too, so I called Verizon today to try and switch over to that. You could cut out the cable and just do the town that has Verizon I bet, right? I am. You are? I am, oh shit. So my neighbor as I was like, I don't like them either. But when we first moved in, we didn't have any cable or Internet because it was brand new street. But I called Verizon today and I was like, okay, I want the Internet, like the most expensive best Internet you got. Like, okay, someone will call you back and we'll work it. I haven't heard back from them. Imagine that. Here you spectrum is so bad. I'm willing to take it in the ass from it. When they finally do call you back, you should go like this. Hello. And then whenever they say to you, say, what? You gonna speak up? Did you call us? I just, I just fired off of kidney stone. Ouch. It hurts the hole in the end of my wiener. Ow. Ow, Owen, hold on, hold on. Just make them wait for you. The government and I don't usually talk politics on this podcast. I really don't, because I don't want people to see when I go on and tweet something that's political. And they don't realize it with centrist libertarian. I'm not Republican or Democrat. I think people think, oh, oh, you like Trump. I forgot about the plan until just now. And I lose like ten followers on Twitter. Every time I tweet anything, and it's not even I'm not being abrasive or anything. But you know what, if they don't want to follow me because they're so hardcore whatever they are, fuck them. By the way, if you want to follow us at planet Mikey, you can follow me personally, which I would love to have at Mikey Adams four 20. I love followers. I just like to have a dialog going back and forth because I'm not a hateful person. I'm not. Am I? Come on. The government was scared of that wet rally that had a hundred people showing. They're all FBI. You put up giant ten foot fences. Yeah, they put up, they put up giant ten foot fences with concrete barriers and they stocked everybody got overtime for two days to build up to this non event because they're pussies. I mean, come on, they're things not going to happen again. That was a rare weird occurrence that happened because they didn't have enough guardsmen out there. In the first one, that's all. If they had 200 guys never mind fits, they would have stopped that last one, but anyway, that's ridiculous. But they don't, the reason quick to put up the fences and the walls when it's protecting the Nancy Pelosi. But they can't put up a fence or wall to keep out 200,000 illegal immigrants from Haiti and South America from coming into the country with COVID. Nancy's got nothing to worry about in a great big place with a wall around it. And guards. You see the horse, the horseman, the good brought in the lone rangers to keep control. And by the way, these people from Haiti, they didn't come directly from Haiti because of the last earthquake. They've all been in South America or the triangle countries for ten years since the last earthquake. Now they just decided this is a good time. We'll pay the money to the cartels. Get us through. And there will be so many of us they can't stop. 24,000 people sitting under a bridge. That's amazing. It's like a my last party in high school. And it's like a real human parties under the bridge. Under the bridge. How much to get in? Well, back then we didn't have cartels. So it was free. Anyway, I just thought I'd mention that because they can build all those fences around the capital, but they can't fix the board and when they're doing it to Texas, they're screwing Texas. If these people were all headed for Delaware, do you think it would be different? Exactly. Politics. Delaware doesn't exist. Like Narnia. But no, it's like they tell you down there now. If you're thinking of the border, and you're a migrant, illegal, you know, and undocumented. They just tell you. Anybody can do it. Even anybody. You're escaping violence. I heard was the latest. I say Biden, by the way, is zero for 8 inflation, or the border. Afghanistan,.

"Looking like a total shit ball. Oh no. Falling all over himself. And the Red Sox lose 11 to ten Vasquez couldn't drop a bunt. They had nobody out. This is to win the game now. Travis, what's his name? Shaw. Travis Shaw comes up. And he hits the ball left field bounces into the ground rule double. Nobody out, man on second. All they gotta do is get this run home with nobody out. He's done saying, so that intentional walk to verdugo first and second, here comes Vasquez. All you got to do is bunt the runners over or get it ahead or do something. No, he bunts a little pop up. The catcher catches it. Ruins the whole thing. They lose the game 11 to ten. And Mikey Adams also lost. It wasn't the last the 50 bucks I put down on the two gate and the two parlays, it was the 160. I would have one if they had just won their game. So it's the opportunity cost of the one 60, not the 50. I got 50s all over. I got like my left pocket right now. I got four 5 6 7 50s right here. I got hundreds of on his side. I don't even carry 20s now 'cause I'm fucking loaded, all right? But I'm pissed about that because that's in my 7 O one. And sale was on the mountain. This is a good bet. Yeah. Sale and what's his name from the Dodgers? Sure. Scherzer, who never loses, you know, at one time, remember that Tiger pitching stuff they had all these German guys. Her lander. They had Zimmer, Zimmerman, I believe they had marks shows her and don't forget they had that other guy. They right handed. German accent. Anyway, so I'm pissed Red Sox. Shouldn't I be? You said, I'm surprised you are because I believe what two months ago. You were just done. We gave up. If I see a bet like that sitting on the table, I can get that done. Sale and Scherzer see now it's just for you it's just a financial attachment to the team. It's not even an emotional attachment to the team. Absolutely correct. I haven't even been physically the ballpark after going every single year since the 60s. A lot of times and sometimes 30, 40, 50 times a year when I was doing live shots at the news every night? The thrill is gone. The EEI doing live up before and after. I don't go there anymore. And it's been 5 full years since I've been to Fenway Park. Wow. It's a long time. Okay, I got that off my chest. Yeah. What else you got there? I don't know. I'm just still I'm still a little shook. It's okay, take a deep breath. I don't like fake people, but fake women in particular. And here's why. These days, back in the day, when you saw a woman who was beautiful. Even if she was not perfect, you said, oh, she's beautiful. She's, you know, Raquel Welsh Michelle Phillips. All these natural beauties. And you'd say, wow, what a beautiful woman. And you'd forgive any little imperfection. Like an excessive nose hair. Based on that. But now everybody's fake. It's not just a college and lips that get blown up like freaking balloons on these girls. They all look like they're the duck lips. Doing a pucker duck. That's fake. That's not your lips. And they don't look good. They don't. And the thing is they're all the same. Do you think they do this for each other or they think they're doing it for us? But the worst is the Kardashians. They do it for the mirror. That's what it is. And their selfies knowledge. But the Kardashian family are maybe the worst offenders because they've all had their lips done and they're all blown up and they all look down because the Kardashian girls and the Jenner girls and even Bruce Jenner, I mean, Caitlyn Jenner, she blew up her lips too just to be. What the hell is that? It's fake lipids. I think you should try it once. I'm never gonna do that. No, if I'm gonna blow up B and sting him in the face. That's it. If I do anything, it'll be the boobs. It's a fake word. 'cause I like dancing with myself. Thank God. Slow dancing. Anyway, fake boobs are another thing. Like it's like, you know, like women's breasts are no, I don't. I don't like them because they're not real. Like, it no matter what a woman had for boobs, you know, ranging from the super small bee sting style breasts to the extra large fun bags. Yes. See, that how you just said it right there is exactly why they get them. Okay, the little beast in press to the excellent fun bag. The point is, that's what God gave them. And that's why if you got that girl to the point where you're gonna see them, then you've fallen enough in love with her to get to that point. Now everybody's got the same snip tucked zip put in some inserts and it's like their heart is rocks. They're like rock hard, that's not how it's supposed to be. So that's all fakeness and it's all, I don't like it. Would you get a dick implant if you could? Why would I need one? I mean, the doctor said he can cut mine down as short as I want it. Anyway, they even have fake ass things implants for girls for asses. Okay, now I'm gonna go have my ass opened up by a surgeon so he can stick some implant in there so my rumpus looks more rounded. What the. What are we? What is this world coming to? I don't know. Do some crunches. Take some stairs. I got that off my chest. Feel better now man to speak. Okay. I went saw my friend get a bloody nose from a giant fake boob. What happened? We were at the strip club of Montreal and used to be able to do this thing where he kind of laid back on the stage and put like a dollar $5 in your mind. Your teeth come over. Which is always classy tricks. Exactly what you did. How would they pick up the money? Simulate. A certain sexual position. And then they bring their kids up to your face and just kind of give you a little playful. And he comes up from it. There's no gushing blood. Wow. What was that? A ninja boob? Right in the mouth? The nose? Just a big, heavy. It was like filled with a bag and your eye poked out. That's different. If you're that close, it's like, you know how you know that dimpled in Verlander's chin, the picture of Justin Verlander? Is that how we got that from kids? That's that. To his chin, all right. Come on speaking of the women Monica Lewinsky is having a special. I'm going to watch it, it was podcast, tapes on Tuesday, the 7th of September. My brother John's birthday, by the way. If he's listening, happy birthday, John. Happy birthday John. Cope. In Monaco, the show is called impeachment. It's on FX, something FX FX. Yeah, maybe. And it's all about the whole Bill Clinton thing, you know, Monica Lewinsky. You know, I don't, you know, you won't cigar. That event defined that defined her. That's it. She can't do anything, and she seems to have recovered. I've seen a couple of interviews. She's much more likeable now at an older age as a quasi victim of the era and Bill Clinton's moves. What's the first thing you think of when you hear that name? A blue dress covered with goo. There it is. That's the second and third thing..

Ya Brown inside himself all the time. You know, when you know you're going to turn pink and everyone's going to like it, you tickle your. So now what kind of a quiz is what are we talking about some quiz? I think, I think it's get our opinions rapid-fire. Like a lightning Ranch. We touch on all these very topical topics. Such studies with pylon, you get two minutes. When the bill goes off like this, that means the two minutes that we have to change topics, and everybody has to shut the hell up. Just like that on the last topic and go to the next one. Ready? Ready song. Cuz I asked you that you did. Have you ever had your cracked professionally cleaned? There you go. But you missed your opportunity. Yes, sir. Okay, already started Cuomo. Well I think somebody decided that it's time for him to go. Somebody above him, maybe he's become a problem for the Democrats. So the original didn't have to go Andrew Cuomo but then you take his brother with him. Yeah they're not going to get them on the on the nursing home debts. They're going to get him on the sexual humor. Go back to have a civil litigation against them for the nursing home deaths in the down the road, all those people died that that should be the first thing people could have that guy man. He's like a sociopath he doesn't care about hurting people. The tools amazing. He's and I think he's gropey grabby greedy, grumpy, Grouse, who's all of them. He's all then and he looks freaky, looks creepy to me. I mean, plus you ever see his thumbs when he holds his hands? His thumbs are reluctant like the letter L. I've never seen yet. Even watch for him. Next time you see his thumbs, it'll probably be him trying to open up your girlfriend's shirt. You know, his promises just like, he's just, he's a, he's what we call in the business, a groper. Okay then yeah and I how do I know? Cuz I could have been that. I could have been that they're closed. Dangerously, close. Yes, you always kept your palm open, that's the key. That's exactly right choice that you called its way you don't get called for a foul in the NBA to True. Keep your palms open. All right, even on Palm Sunday, but this guy has got to be, he's got to be gone in my boss and he's got to go and they've already called for him to be impeached.

The attorney Manhattan Island into a prisoner and it just got completely overrun. And then they somehow kidnapped the president? No, no, no idea. We've seen how far this can go. Just not this. Just apply to Alcatraz. These are only The Killers. Okay, these are all the people were charged for keeping alive that actually kill people, that really should be killed by the death penalty because in order they, they killed a little kid. You know, they wish to kill them but instead of us killing them and saying, okay, well you know constantly Crowell. Okay. Here's we're going to do, we're going to set you free, but you can only go right here on Alcatraz with the other killers and all the be an Island full of killers. If they kill each other, we won't even know or care of, you know, just be all debt. And then we drop off the next bunch of killers. And they, it's a survival thing. It could be a reality T show. Talk address could become like a high-rise with Killers all the way up to them. 7th floor. Yeah, but my point is that you take the pressure financially off the prison system, all these people that are killers, you put them on the killer Island, you call it or whatever you call it and let them deal with each other, okay? What is the real killers about the non killers that go to jail? They don't go to Alcatraz. Well, no, no. Now they get the nice rooms now because they're not killers of the rapist. Gets a nice rooms know, they don't get the job to flesh. This out a little bit more. Should be a wink of Alcatraz rapist in the in the child molesters? Well yeah, sure obviously, there there are levels of crime, you know, you don't want to have but someone who took of all, I think we all know that, that amount of money we pay for these people to be, but in some states there. Now, they're just letting them out cuz we don't understand, we don't have room. Okay. And they're letting out Killers. Yeah, yeah. It's scary. Who's in charge of that decision, and why is it being made? Yeah. And and you Patrol Alcatraz with a bunch of boats guys with machine guns. So no one can swim away. What do you think? I like getting more expensive now. Yeah. What else? He gets up more expensive than keeping, these people left. That's true and doing their laundry. I mean, they can figure out, I think maybe, hey, you never come back. Twenty years later, maybe, they're all nice. And then, you know, they they figured out how to do all that stuff. Laundry electricity, it's like Gilligan's Island except there's no Ginger, no Marianne, it's not even a mrs. Howell there could be Ginger and Mary Ann, right? I just took a killing I prefer the Cool Hand, Luke prism more of those. Less of these opulent huge prison, just more some Backwater piece of shit surrounded by like chicken wire. That's right. Where you can go there and eat fifty eggs and cheese, live, your life and watch women, wash their car and just ask for forgiveness, every day that you ever commited the crime to get into that situation. Okay, well, I got the only other problem I got left on my list. I really think what's its gun violence in the cities and I have that, you know, that I talked about this two, three, four, five, six, eight ten weeks ago, yeah, about metal detectors. I'm going to put my life savings into metal, detector on violence or gum violence. No gun gun. Check out about the worst thing you can do with gum and sticking someone's hair. You know Bazooka Joe is out of control metal detector mandatory sentences for unregistered firearms possession. And here's how you do that you say okay we have a new law, okay? If we if you're caught with a gun, that is not a gun registered, legally registered. Yeah. You're in prison for a year. No, there's no questions asked. You're in prison for a year. I don't care who you are. What you're doing with that gun cuz now, you know, the law. You can't get that gun. Now, what happens? Well, you're able to lock up a lot of people who shouldn't have those guns and your lock them up for you. You get the gun off the street, and you do that with stop-and-frisk. I have an idea. What's that a new show that call Judge Mikey but I'm not a judge I know but you it's good though you don't judge the judge it might be my least favorite person on Fox News meant Judge Jeanine Jeanine. Oh yeah he's just I mean I don't disagree with a lot of things. She says it's the way. She says that she's so irritating wage. Imagine her being the, the prosecutor and you're you're in court and she's coming after you. Did you see that? Brian stelter video where Michael Wolfe Geico off? My God, he got that fat.

I'm going to send you five bucks, you encourage people to leave comments, I, you know, but you can do that on the Apple side, right? You can rate? Yes, should we do that? We should do a contest involving a. My grandma's coffee cake. Leave us a review on a month, I guess, or wherever you hit, but you listen to podcasts. But if you happen to listen, an apple pod, guess that's more important than the world. Can you review on other sites to Google podcast Spotify? You can leave reviews where ever? Well, typically wherever Listen to podcast but let's focus in on Apple podcast. That's the important, right? Leave us a rating. Leave us a review. Yeah, leave us a. Here's what you do. Leave us a 5-star rating if you hate the show with us in the comments but make sure the ratings five stars, right? That's fair. And the best 5-star comment should probably get like a my grandma's coffee cake. How will we know where to send it though? These people are used in Animas muddies when he signs on. It gives me 1 *. We can figure it out. We can figure it out if they're going to leave a comment they're likely following you on the Twitter page anyway. Yeah.

Bongino on the Reality of Our Flag and Thanking God
"So when I joined the Secret service, one of my first assignments my an agent, friend of mine mint. This is called Mike. He got sick. I've been out of training for. I don't even know a month. Not much. I mean, I was about as green as you could possibly get And I'm in the Melville Office of the Secret Service in Long Island. And boss comes in. And he says, Listen, you were an alternate on it on a trip. I'm like a trip. You know where trip to the city. I was along God, He's like no foreign trip to Russia and this guy Mike got sick. So you know you're going, Mikey B. We'll call him, he says you're up. You want to go and I was like Russia. I'm telling you, like New Jersey is, the father said, I think I've ever been outside of training. The first time you travel overseas to a country that's not necessarily a friendly and I think we flew a C five a over there, and there's these massive cargo doors and lower. I'm telling you, I want to be dramatic, but it was like something out of a movie. The cargo doors are dropping or because we fly with all the president's cars and everything you know it's a free ride. Just jump on the plane. It's going down at lands and, you know, the guy comes on board the lead advance agent He's like, you know, Welcome to Russia was seriously was out of salt Look like something out of the movies or I'm a young kid, you know, in my twenties. You know, being overseas where the rules don't matter like they do here. There's no real rule of law in Russia. Whatever works for Vladimir Putin works me. Wasn't Putin back then? But you get the point. When you fly back to the United States, you land and J B a joint base. Andrews used to be Andrews Air Force Base. And you see that flag man? Stars and Stripes.

I start showing up Tarkett school board meetings and making public comments. And actually recently got elected to one of those boards. I joined a local parent organization that standing up in force against critical race theory, mass mandates and vaccine propaganda towards our kids. And I've also been regularly writing and calling my representatives asking and tough questions and seeing what I want from them is a constituent and they're listening. I just want to tell your listeners that they don't have to feel helpless. I hear it in their voices when they call and it makes me so sad. We all just have to get up off our laurels. And be the voices for truth and change where we lead like you say it starts there. Wow. Lisa! Mikey, Please don't hang up on this here. Sometimes. You know, we have to get rid of calls.

Dealing with the costs and operation of hospital pensions
"Many hospitals have pension plans one variety or another however managing. Pensions can become a complex financial task. That many hospitals are not equipped to address internally joining me today. John lull a partner actuary at october three consulting and an expert in benefit and compensation issues with a particular focus on retirement benefits. John is here to help us understand more about how to deal with the costs and operation of hospital. Pensions john. welcome to the show. Thanks very much mike. I'm really happy to be here. I know this problem. We seems like an unusual topic for you and your listeners. But i think we're gonna make the connection for them quite well. Yes is sort of the other side of the house when it comes to ospital finance. It's not necessarily the revenue side. But just as important. So i'm really looking forward to the discussion. John let me start off. Many hospitals still have pension plans. And they come in two varieties as you explained it to me ongoing plans and frozen plans first. Let's talk about hospitals that have an ongoing plan as these are more rare these days What benefits would they get from continuing to maintain a plan. And how can they afford to run them. Mike what you say is absolutely true. They'll probably at this point only about two to three hundred remaining ongoing hospital pension plans left. That said those hospitals have them for the most part doing well financially and they're fully committed to continuing them if they were going to freeze them or completely get rid of them by now They would have done that already. So the ones that are left really have made a commitment to continue them. why. I think what we've learned. Is they see them. As a competitive advantage particularly from a human resources perspective it gives them somewhat of an edge in recruiting talent and in retaining talent and may simply view the cost of those plans as part of their total labor costs so some of them might choose to reduce labor costs in ways to compensate but a number of them have looked at this issue fairly carefully and they say that by decreasing unwanted turnover more than make up for the costs of the pensions and when they design them carefully. He's plans give them an opportunity to have what. A few of our clients are calling supercharged for a one ks. So let me explain that. With an example if for example you are recruiting a new head of. Let's say orthopedic surgery and you tell that person they can have something like their current 401k. But with the deferral women which right now is around twenty thousand dollars that might be five times as large or even ten times as large as it is. Currently that has a lot of value to them so put differently rather than being able to save twenty thousand dollars on a tax favored basis. They can save two hundred thousand dollars a year on a tax basis. That really does have a lot of value would add value to them that they just can't get in other places another issue that's bothered hostile. Finance cheats about pension plans is the cost volatility. But frankly that can be controlled and in fact by the twenty twenties it should be controlled through plan design. That's great so let's talk about the other scenario Which are plans to their frozen. What are some of the issues. Hospitals run into and plans remain frozen and could handle better. Mikey right Lot of frozen pensions out there to pick yearly at hospitals and there's a reason that they exist hostile more than perhaps at any other industry or maybe there are several reasons but the genesis. This goes back many many years. Certainly to the one thousand nine hundred seventy in one thousand nine hundred eighty s. There just aren't a lot of hospitals out there that are truly new organizations. They might be reformed organizations but at some point the actual ospital facility the hospital inc. Even if it's been reformed from a business standpoint probably in most cases goes back to the eighties the seventies or even earlier and what we in in the employee benefits business know about the nineteen seventies in one thousand nine hundred. Eighty s is virtually all employers gave their employees pensions. It was what you did back. Then it was an expectation the The sort of calculus between an employer and an employee in nineteen eighty-four example. Was you come to work for me and if you come when you're late twenties early thirties. You're going to make this year career. This is where you're going to spend your working lifetime and return for that if you're willing to spend your working lifetime with me. I'm going to give you this lifetime income. It's going to be related to the number of years she spent with me and how much i paid you but when you retire you are going to get this pension and it's going to pay you benefit for the rest of your life over time. The trend in the united states change. There are a lot of reasons for it that are for A different time in a different day to discuss but the fact is that organizations did begin to freeze these pensions So over time just as it happened in broad our industry more of these hospitals than not froze those plans the difference is and it seems to be very particular based on our research to hospitals. Once these plans were frozen hospitals. Treated them as if they were gone. In other words to use a kind of bad and use term from late night infomercials they went into set it and forget it mode. The problem that that causes is these frozen. Plans are not at all inexpensive to maintain and frankly the less attention that you do pay to them. More they cost. I guess that makes sense but that more so to speak is usually far more than the cost of having someone on staff to manage them. Once an organization does free a plan. It's goal should eat to terminate it in other words make it exists no more. So what the difference that we have here is if you have a plan that is frozen but not yet terminated. You are still required to administer. That plan contribute to that plan. Hey benefits from that plan and all those things cost money once you terminate it. You have given up all responsibility for the plan. You've taken all the benefits and either cash them out or sent them to insurance company and from your standpoint votes from a cash flow standpoint and from a financial accounting scam point. That plan is gone. It's almost like it never existed so that should be a hospital goal once. They've decided they're not going to provide these benefits anymore. Their goal should be to basically eliminate the existence of that plan eliminate the costs associated with the plan. Women ate what they probably view as the misery associated with a plan and to do that their plan should be two fold. It should be to get the to that destination faster and to get to their destination at less cost

"It's time for another installment of on it. Store live here on scuba shack radio. And this time we're going back to season one episode two titled flooded mine flooded mine the premiered on january eleventh nineteen fifty eight. The show opens up with mike scuba diving. And there's a woman who is free diving with them. They're searching for a guitarfish from marineland of the pacific and that's when they encounter a c line who might calls a natural clown. He then says that he will be faced with a very different situation. Fifteen hundred miles inland where he's been called to investigate a mine. Explosion that has flooded the tunnels in the next scene. Mike is at the mine and he's talking to the head of the mind. Mr graham mr graham explains that the explosion killed thirty miners and he needs mike to determine the extent of the flooding. Mike tells mr graham that he can go thousand yards into the tunnel with his cylinder. Graham asks him what it's going to cost. Mike says we'll talk about that later. Now mr graham calls in bill henderson. Who's going to help mike. Bill tells graham that he sorry about his boy who was killed in an explosion. The scene shifts to mike being lowered into the mine in his full scuba gear with miner's helmet on he says he's been all seven seas on six continents but has never been in a mind before and never wants to be in want again as bill and mike or making their way through the mine. Bill tells mike not to touch anything. It's a tight squeeze and mike accidentally kicks a beam. That causes a bit of a cave-in. Well they finally make it to the water mike. Mike looks at his watch. And it says three twenty and he tells bill that he has forty minutes of air. Bill asks mike. What can you do if he doesn't make it back in time to which mike replies. Nothing bill tells mike. He's got a dangerous job now. Under the murky water. Mike is feeling his way along slowly carefully when he hears some noises. He doesn't know exactly what what they are but he sees a light at the surface and when he surfaces up he discovers to miners trapped in an air pocket barely breathing. Mike shoves the regulator in their mouth and smacks them starts yelling at them to breathe now the dilemma. How to get them out. There's no time to go back for another long. He can only take one out but who they draw. Rocks smallest rock stays the guy. Mike is taking out. Can't swim and he needs wait. So they load his pants with rocks mic shows. Them how to buddy breathe gives him as masks and off they go but not for long. The minor panics. Takes mike's knife and starts to fight with them. Mike drops might drops his light and gets to panic. Diver back to the air pocket. Mike goes back down to get his late and then he comes up and tells the minor to get some rocks. He's taken him out. This time keeps his mask and things go smoothly. We then see bill looking at his watch. It's four pm. Whereas mike suddenly bill sees the light. And mike comes up with the minor. It's been workman. Mike needs to go back but he doesn't have enough air and there's not enough time to go out in the mind for another tank. What can they do. Just an mike spots a welding torch where there's a torch there's oxygen tank has the same valve as regulator. What luck but mike need some tools to complete the rig now. He needs to go back down underwater To retrieve a toolbox he does and hooks up his regulator and carries the o. Two tank with them as he heads back breathing welding oxygen. Mike reaches the air pocket and finds the second minor limp. But not dead. He gives him the regulator and the minor starts to revive. He tells. Mikey sorry that he was scared. Mike says that's okay. You just didn't have enough oxygen this time. Mike says that things went a lot better than they made it out. We never did get the name of that panic minor nor did we ever find out what might charge mr graham for those of us of a certain age or watch a lot of old time television. You might recognize bill henderson. That's hank patterson who played fragile. Arnold the pigs. Dad on greenacres the episode sort of ended abruptly when when it switches to lloyd bridges on his boat telling us that three fifths of the planet is covered by sea.

"Reaching an agreement or in conversations trying to sign. Ah, pretty good player, and it'll be the longest deal that far out. Assigned anyone to in his tenure is Giants president of baseball Ops and it's Ah, Tommy lost Ella, the former Oakland A. The former and I'm Angel. What do you know about this? One of the details of this and what do you think of the movie Carrie not just the longest deal. But according to Susan Slusser, the sample Scott Chronicle who just put this out on Thursday morning could be the biggest deal the giant have given out under far anxiety is she Saying it's in the neighborhood of 19 million. I had heard really close to what jerks and pro far got from the San Diego Padres, which was three years 21 million. And so right around that three years 20 million years, beginning gaining 6.5 7 million average annual value, which to me eyes a little bit surprising because the Giants don't like to make long term commitments. This is going to be the first player that they've really said You were going to be a part of the future when we think that we can win again. And I think that Tommy lost Ella It's not just a win in 20 to 2022 or 2023 move. It's also a hey, Let's see what we can do in 2021. Let's see if you know the Padres of the Dodgers get severe injuries or something chaotic happens where there's issues with them where the Giants are all of a sudden challenging for the second wild card spot because the NL East is going to be tough. There's gonna be teams that emerge from there, but you look at this light up and Tommy was selling. Let's assume he hits leadoff for the Giants against right handed pitchers. You remember lineup that has Mikey's Trump Ski Brandon Belt, Alex Dick. Person Tommy La Stella and Brandon Crawford probably getting down in the seventh race lot. That's gonna be really good. That's gonna be a really, really tough light up on these pictures in the National League. And so the patients the plate discipline the amount of balls that are in play with these guys. It's just a group that kind of syncs up really well, so he was always going to be the most obvious edition.

"Take those steps in and do something professionally with your career to actually. Contribute to the world of conservation, which brings us to the topic of Salad, and if anyone listening has heard of salad at all is probably as an ingredient, which is interesting. Because often times I hear people saying, Vanilla is the only culinary viable orchid on the planet, which is not true. So let's talk about sal up what is it? What is it used for, and where does it come from? When Salad Salad? Actually, it's not only an arcade ashamed Larkin it's like a big group of four kids. If you go through literature, you can find more than thirty five species. SLEAFORD Silane it's also depending on when a whether you are what exactly two different species or group species in Greece different one in Turkey or other countries.

And infected, maybe it's off races when. So what's smoke one between solid core kids as their root system they most often have obeyed Bob's or? Huber's along one that look like little fingers. If. You see those on the rises. So this is actually a a salad porchet and being driven is coming through the dried and ground Cuba's that's what you get the. Fowler and the Susan Shelley Different. If you see, for example, in Greece, they like days they're just washed with water and dry. But if you go to Durkin also boy in either walking on me, it depends on very Jim. So that's what's giving you the final product of salad father. In what is sell generally used in?

Those are two plants that are highly sought after further routes, but the very act of pulling up a plant. By. Its roots kills it right. So this is where you can kind of see the connection with conservation. If you're harvesting the roots of a plant, you're you're taking its life away from it right and so that's where you start to come into issues with biodiversity endangerment with a lot of these orchids correct yet because the production of Saleh Pro Juarez, the use of the entire.

Now, if you think about one cup of sal but of the equivalent to Cappuccino or something but drinking salad beverage. you need five grams for that. So if you do the math works as Iran thirteen plans for a single cup of salad drink. Does a pretty expensive kind of process in terms of of orchids. and. There are certain people told you know taking one of the to chew birds and putting the other back but all this is all this is just talk really because the amount of work required harvesting these things it's very hard were, and that's one of the reasons why are studied we found a lot of people that actually stopped elected. Elected Saleh. But It's a bypass were talking about something between. Ten. In Turkey and the launch ed very variable. The amount of used something between twenty and AC tones in a single year. Yeah. And that I remember talk from Professor Cramps Zeke, he mentioned that every year and thirteen one, hundred, twenty, million arcades are being kids in order to produce missile of the year. So it's like a tremendous amount of individuals and as able say that it is like you're actually bringing up a whole mountain that say a huge number. Yeah and again, we wouldn't be talking about conservation here. If this was something that was produced agriculturally, right these are all being taken from the wild they're harvested and those numbers are mind blowing I had no idea what we were getting into when. We started talking about this just in terms of quantity and like you said, it's not just the fact that they're pulling these plants out of the ground and them for this it's your digging the whole time you're also disrupting habitats and that's something I never see talked about when it comes to harvesting foraging anything like that is the fact that if you're digging things up your
The Meal Prep
"Hey everyone. It's me Lisa. Lillian also known as hungry girl I am here for another episode of Chew. The right thing with my good pals and Co workers and BFF's Mikey and Jamie Hey guys. Hello Lisa, how are you? Good. We missed you last week and we missed you last week. I mean. By we I mean me. Yeah, we were podcast last week. We had a busy crazy week. And we took a little time off I. Hope People Forgave US was anybody said Did, they even notice Regina Regina might have been sad. All Sir number. One. Fan Regina's GonNa love that shout but I'm really happy to be back. I have to say like this week's episode is so good. It's one of those episodes that we have been toying around with for a while and the requests for have just been pouring pouring pouring pouring in. So this is I like to call it the meal prep assode get it. Because it's a meal prep episode so it's the meal prep assode. And meal prepping is so hot right now and we are going to dive into. So much of what people can do to make their lives easier were answering fan questions. Is it weird to call them fans? No. It's all right. We're friends and FRENEMIES. From our hungry girl peeps and I am super excited. Are you like I know you're a big meal pepper? Yeah, I'm excited Oh good Mike you. I'm the meal prep or the family for the most part but what do you do like just like lineup jars of peanut butter is that how you meal prep much that's about. Ninety eight percent of the work is July up the jars. And the rest is knives. You have the smaller I the bigger nine for the chunky peanut butter I know. Exactly All Right Mike. I'm sorry I'm sorry for giving you a hard time time giving you a hard time and now you're going to give us. Who does sit like were there's right. Everybody Likes Workers Right Yeah Oh yeah. Okay. So they have new flavors coming out this fall. Are you ready to hear what they are share? Okay. So we got pumpkin spice, Caramel, apple and cinnamon cream, and this makes me extremely happy because I don't have the patience for hard candy. So they're going to be available in the soft choose which means. Less, work for me. Less work no, it's more work you have to get that. Out of your teeth. Yeah. That's true. Good Point. Good point I didn't do. They have soft candy now I think. So I think the don't you. I only know like workers, my grandmother who was like the cutest human being alive was obsessed with warriors and when I was young living in New York, I would drive to us every Sunday and I bring her a bag of workers and we would enjoy them. I love them and I was like looking forward to these I will try them but I didn't realize they were. Chewy. Bet really good though. Maybe, put him on top of like ice cream or something I don't know what? The not be really hard to eat. They'll be in Mike have you met us? Does that really sound like something we would do probably not something I would. Maybe. A. Well I have your weekend plans already for you. Are you ready? You know what you're going to be doing this weekend Lisa. Tell me tie dye with wine. Okay. This is the newest craze I guess in with people who are still in quarantine. So basically, what you do is you use wine as the is the die and you make tidy shirts with wine. I can link to a website on our food cast page. They'll show you how to do it. The only thing I would suggest is use a cheap bottle. You don't WanNA use like a forty dollar bottle of wine to make touch short. So get like two buck chuck at Traderjoes what about if you only use like? The white wine what if I only like Chardonnay and the House without worrying. Pattern. Do Tie I. Don't know I've been tie-dying Teen I. Think I've. I've dyed like six or. Items Minimum I made my sister birthday tie-dye pants. I've made I've taken a lot of my vintage t shirts I'm GonNa, try this I. think it sounds it sounds really fun and the best part is like if I do open a bottle of wine a very rarely finish it. So it's something to do with the wine the extra red wine that's just been sitting in your fridge. If you get thirsty, you can like ring out the extra into your mouth. As long as it's clean shirt. That's all I got. Okay. Well so let's get into the subject of the day. Subject of the day is meal prep and you know I personally like I always say I'm kind of uncoordinated in the kitchen I don't think of myself. I was like I'm a meal prep or do I have the patience to sit and prepare things and put them in cute little containers and I was thinking no, that's not very me. But when I thought about it further I was. Like that is not really what the definition of meal prepping is to me and to US Jamie and we've had this conversation philosophically. It's really anything that you can do to make your life easier when it comes to thinking about what foods you're going to be eating for the week, right? Yes. It is preparing for your meals, not necessarily just preparing meals exactly, and especially you know during this time when we are home a lot more we may or may not be. Getting takeout or bringing in food a lot of our food is being made by us like it's now is the best time ever to start thinking about what you can do to make your life easier. So you don't fall back and make that phone, call an order that pizza in or just grab something that you might not be happy that you ate afterwards. So the best thing you can do is really thinking advance about what you can keep on hand how you can. Either prepare it or how you will prepare it, and so you're ready for anything. It's
Zadie Smith Interview
"I've known her almost twenty years. I interviewed her for MTV two and white teeth was out and it's been a thrill to watch Zedi grow and operated a public intellectual dropping great novels and Dope Essays and showing herself to just be a really interesting person to listen to I mean putting the also of her accident aside in person ladies as smart and it's fun is her greatest books and she's disarmingly humble in a way that just makes you want to root for her success. So settle in I asked her to talk to me for an hour and we sat there for two. We sat there in our studio at seventy eighth and Broadway and just. This is the most fun episode I've had yet so. I'm. Proud? To. Present. Eighty Smith. On tour ratio. Writing. What do you love about it? I like. I like having an artificial. Set Task To fill the day set by yourself. It's it's that's pleasant. I mean what else you can do its? Own Life and I like the idea of a series of. Tasks except myself completely unnecessary toss that nobody. Has To care about Oh but I sent them a series of books in my mind and then when they're done. I'll be done. I think everyone does that with their life is writing a very. Kind of formal way to do it I can measure out his this way. So. Do you set day go? Goals no because if I did would be very frustrated. So no but I have hopes if every day but I haven't written in months and months at the moment. I'm reading I'M IN A. Like period of reading and preparing but Preparing to start another one. Yeah. But it's much more important for me to be able to read every day them right every day I live without writing if I don't get to read I get very. antsy. Really. Yeah. So how many hours a day reading at the moment all all hours that I'm not. Raising children. So you drop them off and you go. Pick them up. So for about six thousand reading, and then I pick them up again and then after their menu read again. It's The moment is normally like that but at the moment, that's it. Yeah. What are you reading? I'm meeting a lot of stuff about. At eighteen hundreds for something after right. So it's just a of. Research I suppose nonfiction nonfiction near for the most part some novels to sometimes I. Use the bedtime reading with the children as surreptitious. Research, they don't realize it but. The reason we're reading David Copperfield. They need to know that. What are you love so much about reading. I. I really good book recently gyco fronts this with a British writer. WHO said? That actually it's kind of addiction and the strange thing about it is it's a sanctioned addictions and nobody tells you off. For reading a lot when you're a kick particularly if you're. From. A working class or emigrant home as I was everybody's very enthusiastic about it because it seems like a good sign. But what he said in his case Easel. So reading addict, he had very ill sister who died when he was young and reading for him was a way of escaping the world and I think that's always basically true I don't think children who read as much as I did when I was a child are reading because they're delirious with joy. It is a kind of addiction is a kind of escapism and and you realize it when we come to this poker I i. Go. Maybe. Five heavy books in my bag. What did I imagine? What's going to happen on the twenty two minutes away right. What did you bring? Inside Victorian. Home. A book about historical. Mikey Century Court case I lost a load of. Heavy, back books. So. I think reading is just the way I am in the world. That's how I operate and what was interesting about process book is I heard. Expressed as a kind of. Personal floor you know because if if every spare moment you have. You want to be somewhere else. So inside a booker that's. That is a little problematic actually, it's not that different from the people who want to get high off. Be On instagram. Every moment of the day is all about not being way you were
