Viola Davis (2019)

Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist

Viola Davis (2019)

"Hey Guys Willie geist here with episode of The Sunday, sit down podcast. My thanks as always for clicking and listening along my guest. This week is a Hollywood powerhouse. She is the Oscar Tony Emmy and Golden Globe winning actress Viola Davis. We walk through not just an extraordinary career but an extraordinary life she was born on a former plantation in a one room shack in South Carolina moved as an infant up to central falls Rhode Island with her family where she lived destitute poverty. Roaches. In the House you'll hear all about it. Counting only on her school lunch for a meal every day to rise from that place to where she is now is an incredible story and you're going to hear every bit of it. She went to the juilliard school she went on became a Tony winning actress on Broadway and then worked her way onto Hollywood's a-list with breakout roles in the help, and then an Oscar winning performance alongside Denzel. Washington. Inferences not to mention starring role in a hit TV show that earned her an emmy how to get away with murder. Interesting to hear viola talk about fame still kind of uncomfortable with it knows how fleeting it is and talks about giving back and doing the important things with her platform among them her latest project, a documentary called a touch of sugar. It's about the diabetes crisis in our country. She was diagnosed with prediabetes a few years ago, and it runs in her family using the platform to talk about an epidemic in this country, a powerful conversation Viola Davis I have to say sucks you in she speaks so passionately and powerfully she is inspirational and she's here now on the Sunday, sit down podcast. Thank you. Again, a sort of an interview series we're conducting we start at thirty rock then we move here. Do another one somewhere downtown later. Today I'll some keep talking and. I have to say, I, didn't know this about you diabetes that's in your family, and it's just touched your life enough that you wanted to be the voice of the documentary film I did want to be the voice because it. You know the thirty million adults. have. Type two diabetes eighty, four, million that have prediabetes, and then I think about my family has been affected by my two sisters my aunt who succumb to the disease after to amputation my grandmother. It it's an epidemic obviously and it and it seems like it's almost everyone story and when it becomes everyone's story and but then no one really talks about it. Then I always feel like someone needs to blow the lid off of it and get it out into the public eye. That's why I'm now leading this film. That's why I wanted to be a part of it There is something about the aloneness of anything that someone is suffering from that I feel is my sort of mission in life, and then it came knocking on your door as well about a year and a half ago when you got word I have prediabetes. When in for hormone tests and then my doctor took the one seat test, which is Comprehensive Test that measures you average glucose in the last two three months. So you take a test for the year I don't know anything about that and then. She told me the results. and. I had to go to work I was going to how to get away with murder and I remember it just leveled me. It just stopped me. I didn't know what to do. It's like, what can I do exercise I eat right? It's almost like waiting for this sort of silent I dunno Marmi become and decimate you and you're not armed And so I. Just felt like, what do I just become hyper vigilant It doesn't mean that I have to develop type two diabetes but what do I have to change my lifestyle which is already good. To something that's better in a busy with a busy schedule And that's the thing how do you manage and live with this disease? How do you do it? And what do you say to people? Who are living with this disease in terms of hope, because the numbers are staggering one in ten adults in this country live with it and many many more like you were pre diabetic is there more research being done is there's something on the horizon that you can point to and say we're working on this. Well, listen I. Hope that there are more drugs on the horizons or something that can be done I'm sure there are my sisters are all always conversing with each other every single day about something that can be done. And everyone's diabetes is different. Some are diet and I'll wait related some are genetic. There are some things that you can do to manage the disease. There is a website that created a touch of Shikha film dot Com I but. That's what I'm doing. I exercise I think about my carb count I'm hyper vigilant but I do have the genetic factor there. Right you know. That's what I that's what I said and it's all there. In the title, a touch of sugar. Some people may not familiar with that term, but you talk about a growing up as an accepted part of life. She's got a touch sugar. He's got a touch of sugar absolutely because I I was born in Saint Matthew. South Carolina. Literally singleton plantation and everybody who got a diabetes diagnosis. It was called sugar such as such. Got The sugar and busy she the sugar and it was almost sometime said in silence. Almost, like something you should be ashamed of and just the reference to it as diabetes shows the lack of education in what it is, when came from how to manage it, and of course, the State Bowl of African American. Hispanic Communities Really have high numbers of diabetes. The staple of our diet corn bread rice I remember we used to make sugar candy when we were kids how you make sure candy with Crisco and sugar you put it in a frying pan and you heat it up, and then you take the heat off and you wait for it to just hardened. And that was sugar candy. You Ate cornstarch out of the box. That's a big thing you know down South Nobody. Ever knew that those factors could absolutely be the cause and the root of diabetes it was what you did. It what you knew those foods are very cheap, very accessible and so there goes. So now you've gotten to a root of the problem. Which is poverty, which is access to good food access to food two fruit and vegetables, and eating well and education about the importance of that. That, obviously a much bigger problem to tackle but also a piece of the problem that you can speak to. Because, as you said, it was part of how you grew up once again it was I mean and I always say I grew up PO, which is a wrong lower, their poor. You know and but. I I'm one of the forty six million people in this country who live in poverty. That's what twenty, four, twenty, five, thousand dollars a year if you have two kids or more. That's before taxes. and I just you have access to nothing. You have access. To nothing. You know it's what you call even food deserts. There are no whole foods in poor communities. There's barely Ralph's or von on you know. So that's something that needs to be addressed. It's just something that no one talks about I can't tell you how many speaking gigs I've done around the country and when I mentioned poverty and I mentioned just the every day of poverty that I don't can't tell you how many people say no one ever talks about that. There is a shame attached to it when my mom. When we were young, we grew up on public assistance and one of the things that my mom did she really wanted a different life or us, and so she really was involved in welfare reform and one of the things that she really really fought for was a health clinic in the city of Central Falls Blackstone Valley Community Action Health clinic she fought for her and a bunch of other poor women who were living on public assistance because otherwise you know you sort of had to wait for any disease to get completely out of control to walk to Memorial Hospital and sit in the Er for five six hours before you got treated. and. So we had that little health clinic there which didn't provide much but what it was was a source of information. I sat there as a eight, nine year old and I I was taught about nutrition. and. So it was good for me but the level to which she had to fight for that is the sort of warriors we need within those impoverished communities or people walk outside those communities who seen the issue who see the problem and take it upon themselves. You need the same warrior spirit on the outside of the diabetes epidemic as you need from the inside and what I mean by that is even with my prediabetes diagnosis with my two sisters diabetes, you gotTa be a warrior with your health. The Self Care Aspect of it is so enormous in terms of just managing it. Understanding it understanding the root causes of your you just got a tackle it. You know and we that's how we have to be about the poverty crisis. Also, you see it as important. What can you do? How can you stand in the gap and there are people who will say, yes. But how can I worry about having a good diet when I don't even have a diet to begin with I? Mean you've talked about the school lunch. Sometimes. The only meal you would ever have in a day or the best meal for sure that you had entering the day. So I, think for some people getting a meal. Is the is the goal getting a healthy meal might be a nice bonus. If you can get there, we've got to be able to provide food for people where they needed in schools and other places, and there steps being taken along the way. Yes. Backpack programs I certainly have worked with many programs hunger is. Know, they're out there and. And people who understand that a lot of those foods that the provided in schools have a high sugar content, all of those things but in impoverished communities certainly you know here's the thing we to care about each other. You know I'm sorry to sound combined. And make it a grand sweeping statement, but the people have. And the people who get to a position where they have the resources needed to reach back I, know that when I was a kid. We had so many different programs. that. Helped me even to just get an education. I mean beyond the health clinic that provided you know a lot of information. There were someone the city on this up with bomb comparator enrollment programs there are things that you can do. Outreach things that people. In power that has some semblance of anything that can throw someone rope. certainly, this is what the documentary is all about it. They've set up the website. My husband always says. You Got Plant the seed. How good grow? But you have to plan it. And I know that when I was six years old, I was always begging from the inside for help. It was like A. For help and I think that people who have not there was always sort of a silent begging for help and hope. if you see it, if you then address it if you have the power to do that. And you're doing that and your your journey doing that with you as much as I can do in any number of ways and certainly with this documentary and narrating it then and getting the message out there and not stigmatizing something that is affecting like you said, one out of ten people but. But I've done it in other aspects to I will tell you that it does make a difference your journey to be in a position to help the way you do help not just on this but on hunger is an extraordinary one when people hear your story as you said, born on a plantation in South Carolina. Yeah. Growing up as you've said, abject poverty in Rhode Island what was your childhood like what was it like to be a little girl? The way you grew up while it was like everyone's childhood filled with happy memories and you know going to the reservoir and you know playing with my sisters and bicycles and all of that, and it was also filled with. The darkness of. When you pour, you have bad housing you just do. Nobody regulates certain housing for poor people they just don't. So we lived in condemn buildings certainly. Apartments infested with rats never having a phone bad plumbing filling the bucket full of water pouring the water in the toilet the flush it. Certainly, the clothing shoes were always too tight because we bought everything from salvation. Army called Saint Vincent Depaul. and. And you know just the stigma of poverty. The feeling on the outside feeling invisible. Lack of access. Which is why I talk about it all the time and it's uncomfortable for me. It really is it. It. It's uncomfortable for me to talk about it. But I always find that. Once you blow the lid off of anything in wants to tell the truth it becomes a domino effect and it gives people permission to tell the truth, and then it gives another person and another person another person, and soon what it becomes a revolution. A revolution. And, it becomes the norm. And it stigmatizes it. And then once you D- stigmatizes it D- stigmatize it then you have to address it. In a small way. I say what? I say a lot of times because. It's Little. Narcissism in me. That I, it's a demand for people to see me. You see me. I am because I didn't have the power to do that as a kid. And I feel that way about all things that people are suffering in silence with. Is. I want them to be seen and heard. I hate when people are not seen in heard because I think the next step is metaphorically speaking death. And I think that that's happening in the world too much. I. Think that we're seeing the side effects of that too much even zeitgeist now and you're in the unique position to have lived it. So when you talk about poverty, you know from whence it comes I mean you've been there. You said it makes you uncomfortable to talk about is that because it reminds you of those times or what's uncomfortable when you talk about? Not, enough tanks, it you go. Online is anyone on instagram or twitter page talking about they're. Talking about this great. I don't know. McQueen jacket they just bought or the new diet that they're on how they have tight ads now there in extraordinary mom and they can juggle being. A CEO of a company being a mom being a wife and then making homemade meals. Everything is about winning. And everything is about conquering. And everything is about a great result. Nobody. Wants to talk about the other. Okay there is no romance and sexiness involved with poverty. There is no romance sexiness involved with being invisible and not having access to health care the housing to fresh foods. There's no swagger to it. And That's hard. You know it's Rene. Brown says to own your story either you own your story or you stand outside of it hustling for your worth. I'm not hustling for my worth anymore. I. Feel Very like I was born worthy but I know that now. and. That's why he does make you feel comfortable because I understand how I'm going to be seen with it. But, the other part of it is just demand. Given where you came from given all you went through as a child. Where does your light come from? Where did you say I can grow up and be an Oscar winning actor. When did you start to see yourself that way that I can step out of this childhood into something bigger and better for myself? What gave you that hope. You know what? I don't know if I always. Saw It. I'm just going to be honest with you. I think I believed it a huge. Amount of time in my life but. Seeing a physical manifestation of what you want to be. A mentor as Joseph Campbell says in the journey hero when you have your call to adventure in catapulted out of your ordinary life, what you don't fit in and a mentor into your path someone who's who's who's seen the road who's WHO's paid the way? And they come and they show you the pat that was Miss Tyson. That was my sister. Diane. That was someone who teaches you how to Nostra skill teaches you on a fail how to succeed Sony just likes you. Simply like to. That's what helped me. Now, I have to tell you there's a cap on awards. There's a cap on cuteness in I don't know being on people's most beautiful. List this a cap to it if someone tells you is not a cap to it. They're lying would say there's a cap to greatness. There's a cap fame we've seen fifty million documentaries of people who just destroyed their lives to on top of their game. Because a tooth of the matter is, is that everyone fights for success because they feel like once you hit it we've got it. You've got the Elixir that is the magic loop soup that Joseph Campbell talks about. That is not the Alexa. The Elixir is living a life of significance. The Elixir is living a life that is bigger than you. That's what it is, and if you're not doing that, then you're not doing anything. Nothing. That message needs to be pounded in people and I think that probably you'll see less of even what I'm talking about now, which is people living with the disease where a lot of people not throwing them a rope. it needs to be part of the like sort of normalize conversation. Even when we're we're talking to our kids, you know instead of saying we want next. premed. Become a lawyer. What about living life? That's meaningful. Like urban says the great existentialist psychologists who says, I will not truly be dead until the last person who has a memory of me dies. You know we want that to be hundreds of years from now we want people to benefit from our legacy legacy. You have hundreds of years from now. And that's not just cute face. Trophies on a shelf, right? Absolutely. We have the we we live in very resourceful our country. It's a very wealthy country I think that we. Can come up with a solution in terms of. How to help people who are suffering even in terms of Health That's very well said, but I do want to ask about those trophies on your shelf if that's okay. All right. So when I'm curious when you your first acting Gig, when did you even get into that? When did you know that was a possibility coming from where you came from Oh, I could do this. Miss Tyson changed the game for me because she looked like needs like my mom. I started acting when I basically was eight or nine, my sisters and I because we wanted something to do, we would write skits. We'd right WHO's skits and we would have rehearsals would rewrite. We would have a wardrobe budget. And then I started acting really acting in high school in drama. Competitions. Rhode Island. Drama Festival I got a scholarship when I was fourteen to young people school of the Performing Arts at the travel three hours. One way just to get to the school. And once again, everyone who went to the school they were coming up in Peugeot's Saab's and BMW's I was coming on foot. Proud to be there and I always say that I'm an og because people ask me that question when she gets deided I've done. So many plays so many productions in church basements and basketball courts off Broadway on Broadway Regional Theatre I've worked with everyone. I love. The work I loved paying my dues I just thought it was such an awesome thing for people to say some. Viola. So what do you do to actually say I'm an actor I thought it was awesome. And like anything led to juilliard, led to getting an agent just created a domino effect and it brought me to Hollywood. And here I am it's funny. Almost every actor I've ever spoken to talk about their career say people see the product, which is me standing on a stage with statue in my hand and they don't know the twenty twenty five years that led up to that they. Off Broadway Nobody knows the truth of anything. You know they really don't if you're born with a statue in your hand, there was. Came before it. Yeah. And they also kind of think you just Kinda stroking the statue every day you know. I don't look at this statute. So what was the most exciting when you get out of juilliard and you get onto Broadway and you're nominated for? Tony Pretty quickly in that time afterward. What was the most exciting first day for you on? Broadway was walking out onto the stage saying here I am I can tell you exactly what it was. Opening Night of seven guitars on Broadway. When I think about everything I believed that being an actor was. That was it. Walking into your dressing room and Florida's ceiling flowers. The all the camera crew outside the theatre. Working with August Wilson on my mom and dad being in the audience and my dad crying. During the curtain, call the cameras you know everybody taking pictures and you know movie cameras were then my father standing up crying clapping he didn't know what to do with shaking. My mom it. It was a think. That I thought being an actor was it was the work and the joy of the work. It was the smell of the theater and it was the working with the great playwright Wilson, the great director Lloyd Richards Great Actors. I was like I met this is it I've arrived I don't need anything else in my life, I? Wish. There because now I know I know. I'm like really. Really thought that was it right But that's the journey you feel like you've reached the mountaintop and then Oh, they're more mountains after that are you've reached the point you always dreamed of getting. And then you win a Tony for King Hedley win another Tony for fences and now you're sort of like the queen of Broadway. For that time. I mean that must have been an extraordinary thing for somebody who? was playing church basements to start her career. It was an extraordinary thing. You know to dream the biggest dream you can possibly imagine in your life and having. No kind of foresight of how that was going to happen, and then all of a sudden it happens. You. You you. You sort of hit. It's sort of like magic. And it speaks to the power of. Belief and hope. And Hard? Work. but life doesn't end there. I always say the three most important words that happens especially after you have big old trophy in your hand or anything the three most important words are and now what? And now what what's the next thing? What's the next chapter. Denzel. Always says Denzel has the best quotes by the way I don't mean out on. I would you Says there's no u-haul haul in the back of a hearst. You sort of can't take it with you. And wants to hit it. You realize it's like Oh my God. I got an Oscar. Your heart is about to tasting and then you go home and then you sit down and then the next day and it's like. And how what? What's the next page and That's sort of where I'm at right now What was it like to jump into movies from the stage given the fact that you built your whole career on stage work What are a movie set feel like to? I started doing like speaking another Land Land Right Speaking Mandarin at Mandarin movie once and they cut it out I'm so glad I did it it was so hard to two months to learn one sentence that's what it was like make like learning mandarin it was a black hat. And I thought it was so good. Go to my friends who Chinese and say I'm going to say something to you and they would say. But it was like speaking man is just a completely different world and it completely different world. I mean I always say all you have to do in a movie is sustainable performance for thirty seconds. That's it. That's as long as eight glass. So you got thirty seconds. All right. When you on stage you can have a twelve page scene and there are no edit buttons. There are no cuts and that's just one scene. I've been I've done plays where I've done them for year six seven months and you're onstage the entire time. Thirty seconds to sustain the performance. So it was much different and you're acting opposite someone like Merrill Street. So you're standing there going I'm good. I'm really good. I'm good I. Know This street. But I'm Viola Davis. And then you're acting opposite her and you're thinking Oh my God. Oh my God it's Meryl. Streep Oh my God it smells streep in. It's like cut by. Okay. Let's do. You're not in the sea but. And the other part of movies it's very difficult. So much of what we do in movies and TV sex appeal, right? How cute you are do we liked you? What's Your Cue Rating? You know I'm not I'm not so good at that. I think you're you may not know it seem to like you by Ola well. I'm glad people like me but you know to actually manufacture right is is very, very difficult. I'm just I'm just about just telling the story. You know doing the work I love the work. Love it. When you get nominated for an Oscar for one scene in doubt were you surprised by that nomination because that felt like a lot of people including Meryl Streep by the way as the beginning of something when she famously said get her movie. Yeah was that a surprise to be nominated for that. Yeah. All of is a surprise to me. Every bit of it is a surprise when I, when I got the role I thought that was the reward and award I didn't see beyond that. So and then being at the Oscars in the red carpet. Carpet, I had a panic attack. It's one of the. One to panic attacks, I've ever had in my entire life I would not recommend any. I would even wish that upon were sending me I don't have a lot of enemies but I would not wish that upon anybody who had it on the red carpet Oh yeah. I had carbon and what does that mean? What happened? Besides shaking uncontrollably. Besides hyperventilating besides a very beautiful woman named Meryl Streep who told me the day before? Viola. Listen. I can't be at that award show. But if I win, can you accept the award for me and I said? Yes. Yes. I'll do that and then I got there I was like what just? That led to the panic attack along with the red carpet. And you know I didn't want to. Kill you because. Oh My. You got through it I. Don't think anybody noticed you survive pretty well I know you say winning an Oscar isn't the end of the world and and what's next but To Have Oscar winner in front of your name. Every time someone says, it does mean something you're in a club with Meryl Streep and some of your other idols and now people were friends of yours. What does it mean to be in that sort of elite club? You may not think of it that way but people on the outside certainly do. Has It changed your life's I. Know It's changed your career I'm sure. But does it change your life to be Oscar winner Viola Davis. Yeah. It's changed my life to be Oscar winner to. Be On a TV show the TV, show really out on my life even more than the Oscar, tell you the truth. Everything is. All of it as the money all of it I remember someone saying you know if you're not poor anymore I was like. You didn't know what that information is but. Yeah it's. It's totally but I'll tell you what it's probably more of transformation to people who observe my life in me being in it right me being in it I don't know the viola that you talk about. I don't I'm aware that you know it. But in my every day when I had my rap over my head and I'm running around with my daughter and we're going to Ralph's or bonds and I'm cooking. I'm Biolo-. I'm me. And you know in terms of me getting through my everyday life and certainly living a meaningful life it. Doesn't play a role except for the power of influence. Which is what I'm doing here the power of influence is. I will say that the power to literally stand up on the stage and have people listen to you when you're coming from a pass when one saw you know one listened to you. So it's like now, what do you WanNa? Say What do you want to do you know? Helps that you have such a presence to a lot of people have the platform, but they can't deliver it. I would argue the way you deliver it have you always had this presence about you you speak almost poetically and. I mean, it's not everybody who can pull that off. Is that part of being an actor been comfortable on a stage? Well well. Comfort is like a dirty word for an actor. You know that they tell you not right for comfort right to be uncomfortable in the moment you're alive and all that you're not afraid of the spotlight on stage clearly well. Sometimes I am but. I'm I'm used to it. I'm used to the spotlight I. Guess I'm used to the camera being. Placed on me. I am thank you for listening to the Sunday.

We usually discuss off camera listen for free wherever you get your podcast. Welcome back to the Sunday sit down podcast now more of my conversation with Viola Davis. Do you have moments do you ever stop in your life? Look back at the Little Girl in Rhode Island? Look at your life and go. I. Don't know how I got here. Thank God I did but I don't know how I got here. All the time. Every single. Day. You know when I think about her a lot to. First of all every day. When I opened my refrigerator. When I flush toilet. When I could put a robe on. When I have hot running water. When I know that there's no lead in the paint in my house. When I could get in the car and I can go somewhere and walk. She is with me every day to understand that every little thing in my life is to celebrated. Okay. But I always say I always want to heal her because she was always. So sort of traumatize grew up in dysfunction. My father who I loved more than anything was an alcoholic. It's a byproduct. Poverty. That always want to heal her i. just want to reach back and go. You know what? Everyone I see in my life. I I I'm GONNA remember you. I'm going to listen to people love people because it's like healing the little girl. But it's like someone just recently said. Can you allow the little girl? That little girl who survived is pretty tough. Can you allow her to be so excited at the fifty-three-year-old she gets to become Can you her to hug you and just squeal. And It took me a long time to do that. But. I finally did it because I think that there's a grace gratefulness that needs to come and enjoy that needs succumbed with celebrating the fruits of your labor. That I have not allowed myself to do because I think that's also something that comes from Poverty is survivor's guilt. is making it out. When you see other people who are still in the hole. So I'm allowing here to sort of hug me and skill. and. I do things like this that feed my soul touch of sugar. Because I love my sisters who are here in New York with me I want to live. Yeah I'm reconciling my childhood. But as you say, it took you a while to get there. You weren't comfortable with your success and your fame and people like me telling how great you are. What what was the tipping point for you? How did you get there to say you know what? It's okay that I am where I am. Well you know what a friend of mine said this. Once I mean besides a lot therapy. But, a friend of mine said this once she said, you know what? By Ola when I tell my story, a lot of times I stand outside of it and I think to myself. Wow. You are awesome. That is such an unbelievable testimony. You know then you begin to see how God worked miracles in your life, and then I started really listening to my story and understood how Awesome it was. incredible. I just thought you just work hard and you get out. That's it. It's nothing credible about it. So the more I've told my story. The. More. I. HAVE EMBRACED IT But I gotta keep telling it. and not live outside of it like renege ground says. Joseph Campbell says when you go and you going out there to that call. To adventure you're going out there to find that Elixir that answer to your life that you gotta go into that Inner Cave. and. You gotta go in there and slay those dragons. And I find that when I went into those innermost caves that IMOs Cave that the dragon I needed to slay was me and That sort of hurt in that pain of. Soda Railing at God, like why do I have to be that kid growing up or? Filthy houses and Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah by why do I do that anger that sort of pain and all of that of. That innermost cave and slay her and understand that I'm still alive. I, have the power of influence. That God has always been with me. Upward bound program prepared tour enrollment program teachers have been awesome great actors like Cecily Tyson Meryl. Streep. People like my sister, the ropes that have been thrown at me. That's what I found in the inner most cave. and. Then you know nickel back after I found that answer to. SORT. Of Give. that. Elixir. To people who are still there. That there is a way to live a life of significance and reconcile way you are now that there's a way out and there's a way to make your life meaningful. Forget Bernard Brown I'm following you through the wall. You're you gotta get you. I'm sorry. I think you take it over awesome. I would be derelict in my duty if I didn't ask you if there's going to be more of the show you mentioned. Howard with. ABC to decide I. think that annelies Keating has more in her. That's what I think. I sort of I'm seeing something. Is that a suspicion or something, it's a suspicion. Hope that they'll be more. I need for analysts to have some labs I really do I. You know it's just like me people think that I'm not fun. I am so much fun. If you come to my house I'm telling you, we have me and my husband would have green parties. But I need to have some lab let's give those things at the laugh. Okay. She doesn't get it up for that. I also want to ask you about work you do with your husband and your production company, and we were just talking briefly about the Emanuel documentary that you're executive producing with Steph Curry. Boy I've only seen the trailer, but it looks incredibly moving. Absolutely. It looks like something you did the right way. Why was that a project you want to take on? Well, we met the victims of the Ame church in Charleston when I was I had to present them with the Award Glamour, magazine event. and. We spoke to them afterwards, a party really sat down with them and you know the big thing with them is they said, we're not gonNA live in Hey. We're GONNA live forgiveness. What struck me as forgiveness is journey. But I just didn't want people to forget that story. I didn't want people to forget that's tragedy. You know so often with the number of tragedies at that happened in this country, it's amazing how you have to keep reminding people of it. They remember it for a while it's it's on the news it's trending and then because of the twenty four hour news cycle within seconds, it's forgotten again. I didn't want people to forget. I felt like I owed it to them. You know the pain that they still goal to losing. Their loved ones as a son, a mom. I didn't want people to forget that and how awesome it is like i. told you before they use whatever power I have as a source of of of influence and so. When it came to us as a producing project, we wanted to do that. We just felt like we had to. Expand I applaud everything you're doing with this platform especially on diabetes. I told you my father has diabetes. So it means a lot that you've given your time to this. Thank you so much. Thank you enjoyed talking to you. Thank you.

Sunday Sitdown with Willie Geist

Viola Davis

"Hey, guys, Willie Geist here with another episode of the Sunday, sit down podcasts. Thanks as always for clicking and listening along my guest this week is a Hollywood powerhouse. She is the Oscar Tony EMMY and Golden Globe winning actress viola Davis we walked through not just an extraordinary career. But an extraordinary life. She was born on a former plantation in a one room shack in South Carolina, moved as an infant up to central falls Rhode Island with her family where she lived in destitute poverty roaches in the house. You'll hear all about it counting only on her school lunch for a meal every day to rise from that place to where she is. Now is an incredible story, and you're going to hear every bit of it. She went to the Juilliard school. She went on became a Tony winning actress on Broadway and then worked her way onto Hollywood's A-List with breakout roles in the help and then an Oscar winning performance alongside Denzel Washington. In in fences. Not to mention a starring role in a hit TV show that earned her an EMMY how to get away with murder. Interesting to hear violet talk about fame. Still kind of uncomfortable with it knows how fleeting it is. And talks about giving back and doing the important things with her platform among them her latest project a documentary called a touch of sugar. It's about the diabetes crisis in our country. She was diagnosed with prediabetes a few years ago and it runs in her family using the platform to talk about an epidemic in this country. A powerful conversation viola Davis, I have to say sucks you in. She speaks so passionately and powerfully. She is inspirational and she's here now on the Sunday, sit down podcast. Thank you. Bye. Again were as a serve an interview series. We're conducting we started thirty rock, then we moved here. And we'll do another one somewhere downtown later today. Some keep talking I have to say, I didn't know this about you the diabetes. That's. In your family, and is touched your life enough that you wanted to be the voice of this documentary film. I didn't want to be the voice because it, you know, the thirty million adults that have type two diabetes, the eighty four million have prediabetes. And then I think about my family has been affected by my two sisters, my aunt who succumb to the disease after to my grandmother it it's an epidemic, obviously. And it, and it seems like it's almost everyone story. And when it becomes everyone's story. And but then no one really talks about it. Then I always feel like someone needs to blow the lid off of it and get it out into the public guy. That's why I'm now leading this film. That's why I wanted to be a part of it. There is something about the aloneness of anything that someone is suffering from that. I feel. Well, is my sort of mission in life, and then it came knocking on your doors well about a year and a half ago when you got word I had pre diabetes, you know. And I went in for a hormone tests. And then my doctor took the one see test which is comprehensive test that measures. You average glucose in the last two three months. So you take that test four times a year and know anything about that. And then she told me the results, and I had to go to work. I was going to how to get away with murder, and I remember it just leveled me it just stopped me. I didn't know what to do. It's like what can I do? I exercise I eat, right. It's almost like waiting for this sort of silent. I dunno Marmi to come in decimate you and you're not armed. And so I just felt like what do I just become hyper vigilant? It doesn't mean that I have to develop type two. Diabetes. But what do I have to do to change my lifestyle, which is already good to something? That's better in a busy with a busy schedule. And that's the thing. How do you manage to live with this disease? How do you do it? And what do you say to people who are living with this disease in terms of hope because the numbers are staggering one in ten adults in this country live with it and many many more like you were pre diabetic. Is there? More research being done is there's something on the horizon that you can point to and say, we're working on this. Well, listen, I hope that there are more drugs on the horizons or something that can be done. I'm sure that there are my sisters all always conversing with each other every single day about something that can be done. And everyone's diabetes is different some are diet and await related some are genetic. There are some things that you can do to manage the disease. There is a website that created a touch of Shikha film dot com. I, but that's what I'm doing. I exercise. I think about my carb count. I'm hyper vigilant. But I do have the genetic factor there. Right. You know? That's what I can. That's what I said. And it's all there in the title a touch of sugar. Some people may not be familiar with that term. But you talk about growing up as just an accepted part of life. She's got a touch of sugar. He's got a touch of sugar. Absolutely. 'cause I I was born in Saint Matthews, South Carolina, literally singleton plantation and everybody got a diabetes diagnosis. It was called shooter. Such as such got the sugar and busy, you know? She got the ship, and it was almost sometimes set in silence. You know, almost like something you should be ashamed of and just the reference to it as diabetes shows, the lack of education in what it is when it came from how to manage it. And of course, the state bowl of African American Hispanic communities really have high numbers of diabetes. The staple of our diet corn bread rice. I remember we used to make sugar candy. When we were kids, you know, how you make sure candy with crisco and sugar you put it in the frying pan, and you heat it up, and then you take the heat off. And you wait for it to just harden and that was sugar candy. You know, you ate cornstarch out of the box. That's a big thing. You know, down south nobody ever knew that those factors. Could absolutely be the cause and the root of diabetes. It was what you did. It was what you knew those foods are very cheap, very accessible. And so there goes will. Now you've gotten to a root of the problem, which is poverty, which is access to good food, which is access to food two fruit and vegetables and eating well and -cation about the importance of that that obviously is a much bigger problem to tackle. But also a piece of the problem that you can speak to because as you said it was part of how you grew up. Once again, it was I mean. I always say I grew up pope, which is wrong low with poor, you know, and, but it's I I'm one of the forty six million people in this country who live in poverty, that's what twenty four twenty five thousand dollars a year. If you have two kids and more. And that's before taxes. And I just you have access to nothing. You have access to nothing. You know, it's what you call even food desserts. You know, there are no whole foods in poor communities. There's barely a Ralph's or von, you know. So that's something that needs to be addressed. It's just something that no one talks about I can't tell you. How many speaking gigs that I've done around the country, and when I mentioned poverty, and I mentioned just the every day of poverty that I don't can't tell you. How many people say no one ever talks about that? There is a shame attached to it. When my mom when we were young, we grew up on public assistance, and one of the things that my mom did she really wanted a different life for us. And so she really was involved in welfare reform, and one of the things that she really really fought. For was a health clinic in the city of central falls Blackstone valley community action health clinic, she fought for it her and a bunch of other poor women who were living on public assistance, because otherwise, you know, you sort of had to wait for any disease to get complete. Out of control to walk to Memorial Hospital and sit in the ER for five six hours before you got treated. And so we had that little health clinic there which didn't provide much, but what it was was a source of information. I sat there as eight nine year old. And I I was taught about nutrition. And so it was good for me. But the level to which she had to fight for that is the sort of warriors, we need within those impoverished communities or people outside those communities who seen the issue who see the problem and take it upon themselves. You need the same warrior spirit on the outside of the diabetes epidemic as you need from the inside. And what I mean by that is even with my prediabetes. Diagnosis with my two sisters diabetes. You got to be a warrior with your health. The self care aspect of it is so enormous in terms of just managing it. Understanding it understanding the root causes of your diet. You just got a tackle it, you know. And that's how we have to be about the poverty crisis. Also, you see it as important. What can you do? How can you stand in the gap? And there are people who. I will say yes. But how can I worry about having a good diet when I don't even have a diet to begin with? I mean, you've talked about the school lunch teen sometimes the only meal you would ever have in a day or the best meal for sure that you had during the day. So I think for some people getting a meal is is the goal getting a healthy meal might be a nice bonus. If you can get there, we've got to be able to provide food for people where they needed in schools and other places, and there are steps being taken along the way. Yes. Backpack program worked with many programs hunger is. They're out there. And and people who understand that a lot of those foods, the provided in schools have a high sugar content all of those things, but in impoverished communities, certainly, you know, here's the thing. We got care about each other. You know, I'm sorry to sound Koumba ya and to make it like a grand sweeping statement. But the people who have and the people who get to a position where they have the resources need to reach back. I know that when I was a kid we had so many different programs. That helped me even to just get an education. I mean beyond the health clinic that provided a lot of information. There were some in the city on the seal up with bomb prepared Tori enrollment programs. There are things that you can do outreach things that people in power that has some semblance of anything. They can throw someone the rope. Certainly this is what the documentary is all about they've set up the website, you know, mice. My husband always says, you got to plant the seed, you know, know, how it's going to grow. But you have to plan it. And I know that when I was six years old. I was always begging from the inside for hell. It was like a begging for help. And I think that people who have not there was always sort of a silent begging for help and hope. If you see it if you then address it if you have the power to do that. And you're doing that and your your journey doing that with you as much as I can do in any number of ways, and certainly with this documentary narrating it then and getting the message out there and not stigmatizing something that is affecting like, you said one out of ten people. But. But I've done it in other aspects too. And I will tell you that it does make a difference your journey to be in a position to help the way you do help not just on this. But on hunger is an extraordinary one. When people hear your story as you said born on a plantation in South Carolina. Yeah. Growing up you've said abject poverty in Rhode Island. What was your childhood like what was it like to be a little girl? The way you grew up while it was like everyone's childhood filled with happy memories, and you know, going to the reservoir and playing with my sisters and bicycles and all of that. And it was also filled with the darkness of. Then you pour you have bad housing. You just do nobody regulates housing for poor people. They just don't. So we lived in condemn building certainly apartments infested with rats. Never having a phone bad plumbing. Filling the bucket full of water pouring the water in the toilet the flush it. Certainly the clothing shoes. Always chew tight because we bought everything from Salvation Army called it. Saint Vincent, depaul and. And, you know, just the stigma of poverty, the feeling on the outside but feeling invisible lack of access which is why I talk about it all the time. And it's uncomfortable for me. It really is it. It's comfortable for me to talk about it. But I always find that. Once you blown the lid off of anything at once, you tell the truth. It becomes a domino effect. And it gives people permission to tell the truth. And then it gives another person and another person another person and soon what it becomes is a revolution a revolution. And it becomes the norm. And it stigmatizes it. And then once you d- stigmatizes, it d- stigmatize it. Then you have to address it. In a small way, I say when I say a lot of times because it's a little narcissism in me that I it's a demand for people to see me. You see me? I am because I didn't have the power to do that as a kid. And I feel that way about all things that people are suffering in silence. With is. I want them to be seen and heard I hate when people are not seen in heard because I think the next step is metaphorically speaking a death. And I think that that's happening in the world too much. I think that we're seeing the side effects of that too much even zeitgeist now, and you're in the unique position to have lived it. So when you talk about poverty, you know, from whence it comes. I mean, you've been there you said it makes you uncomfortable to talk about is that because it reminds you of those times or what's uncomfortable. When you talk about rapidy not enough time slot. It you go online is anyone on the Instagram or Twitter page talking about ATI where they talking about this great. I don't know Alexander McQueen jacket that they just bought or the new diet that they're on how they have tight ads. And now, they're in extrordinary mom, and they can juggle being, you know, a CEO of a company being a mom being a wife and then making homemade meals everything is about winning. And everything is about conquering. And everything is about a great result. Nobody wants to talk about the other. Okay. There is no romance. And sexiness involved with poverty, there is no romance in sexiness involved with being invisible and not having access to health care the housing to fresh foods. There's no swagger to it. And. That's hard. You know, it's Rene Brown says to own your story, either you own your story or you stand outside of it hustling for your worth. I'm not hustling for my worth anymore. I feel very much like I was born worthy. But I know that now. And. That's why it does make you feel comfortable because I understand how I'm going to be seen with it. But the other part of it is just I've been manned. Given where you came from giving all you went through as a child where does your light come from? Where did you say I can grow up and be an Oscar winning actor. When did you start to see yourself that way that I can step out of this childhood into something bigger and better for myself? What gave you that? Hope you know, what I don't know. If I always saw it. I'm just going to be honest with you. I think I believed it, but a huge amount of time in my life. But seeing a physical manifestation of what you want to be. A mentor as Joseph Campbell says in the journey of a hero. When you have your call to adventure in your catapulted out of your ordinary life. What you don't fit in and a mentor into his your path someone who's who's who seen the road who's who's paid the way, and they come and they show you the path that was miss Tyson. That was my sister Diane that was someone who teaches you how to master a skill to fail. How to succeed in someone who just likes to simply like to. That's what helped me. Now, I have to tell you. There's a cap on awards. There's a cap on Putin is in I don't know being on people's most beautiful list. There's a cap to it. If someone tells you is not a cap to it. They're lying. What did I mean? When you say there's a cap to greatness, there's a cap defame. We've seen fifty million documentaries of people who just destroyed their lives who were on top of their game. Because a tooth of the matter is is that everyone fights for success because they feel like once you hit it you've got it. You've got the elixir that is the magic look suit that Joseph Cambell talks about right? That is not the Alexa. The elixir is living a life of significance. The elixir is living a life that is bigger than you. That's what it is. And if you're not doing that, then you're not doing anything nothing. That message needs to be pounded in people. And I think that probably you'll see less of even what I'm talking about now, which is people living with the disease where a lot of people not throwing them rope. It needs to be part of like a sort of normalize conversation. Even when we're we're talking to kids, you know, instead of saying we want you mixed case premed become a lawyer. What about living the life? That's meaningful. Like urban says, the great existential psychologists who says I will not truly be dead until the last person who has a memory of me dies. You know, we want that to be hundreds of years from now we want people to benefit from our legacy. Whatever legacy. You have hundreds of years from now. And that's not just a cute base. It's not trophies on a shelf. Right. Absolutely. We have we we live in very resourceful country. It's a very wealthy country. I think that we can come up with the solution in terms of how to help people who are suffering even in terms of health. That's very well said, but I do want to ask about those trophies on your shelf. Okay. All right. So when I'm curious when you your first acting gig. When did you even get into that? When did you know that was a possibility coming from where you came from all I could do this miss Tyson changed the game for me because she looked like needs like, my mom. I started acting when I basically was eight or nine my sisters. And I because we wanted something to do we would write skits. We'd right who's skits. And we would have rehearsals, we would have rewrites we would have a wardrobe budget. And then I started acting really acting in high school in drama competitions Rhode Island drama festival. I got a scholarship when I was fourteen to young people school of the performing arts add to travel, three hours one way just to get to the school. And once again, everyone who went to the school. They were coming up in Peugeot's and Saab's and BMW's I was coming on foot, but proud to be there. And I always say that I'm an OG because people ask me that question. When did you get started? I have done so many plays. So many productions in church, basements and basketball courts off Broadway on Broadway regional theatre I've worked with everyone. I love the work. I loved paying my dues. I just thought it was such an awesome thing for people to say, so vile. So what do you do to actually say? I'm an actor. I thought that it was awesome. And like anything led to Juilliard it led to getting an agent. It just created a domino effect. And it brought me to Hollywood. And here. I am. It's funny almost every actor. I've ever spoken to talk about their career say people see the end product, which is me standing on a stage with a statue in my hand. And they don't know the twenty twenty five years that led up to that based off Broadway. Nobody knows the truth of anything. You know, they really don't if you're born with a statue in your hand. There was came before it. Yeah. And they also kind of think you just kinda stroking the statue every day, you know. I don't look at the statutes. So what was the most exciting when you get out of Juilliard, and you get onto Broadway, and you're nominated for Tony pretty quickly in that time afterward. What was the most exciting first day for you on Broadway was walking out onto the stage saying here, I am. I can tell you exactly what it was opening night of seven guitars on Broadway. When I think about everything I believed it being an actor was that was it walking into your dressing room and Florida's ceiling flowers. The all the camera crew outside the theatre working with August Wilson on my mom and dad being in the audience and my dad crying. During the curtain call the cameras, you know, everybody taking pictures and movie cameras were then my father standing up crying clapping. He didn't know what to do. We shaking. My mom it. It was employee thing that I thought being an actor was it was the work and the joy of the work. It was the smell of the theater, and it was the working with the great playwright. August Wilson, the great director, Lloyd Richards, great actors. I was like I'm at this. Is it I've arrived? I don't need anything else in my life. You know, I wish we're back there. Because now, I know I know. Really? Really thought that was it right? That's the journey. Right. You feel like you've reached the mountaintop? And then oh, there are more mountains after that. Are you've reached the point you always dreamed of getting and then you win at Tony for king Hedley, then you win another Tony for fences. And now you're sort of like the Queen of Broadway for that time. I mean that must have been an extraordinary thing for somebody who was playing church basements to start her career. It was an extraordinary thing to dream. The biggest dream you can possibly imagine in your life and having no kind of foresight of how that was going to happen. And then all of a sudden it happens, you you sort of hit it it's sort of like magic, and it speaks to the power of belief and hope and hard work. But life doesn't end there. I always say the three most important words that happens, especially after you have big old trophy in your hand or anything the three most important words are and now what? And now what what's the next thing? What's the next chapter Denzel always says Denzel has the best quotes, by the way. I don't mean out. I would you. Says there's no U-Haul in the back of a hearse. You sort of can't take it with you. And once you hit it. That's what you realize. It's like, oh my God. Oh, I got an Oscar your heart is about potato. And then you go home, and then you sit down and then it's the next day. And it's like. And how what? What's the next page? And that's sort of where I'm at right now. What was it like to jump into movies from the stage? Given the fact that you've built your whole career on stage work, what are the movie set feel like to you? When you first started doing it, like speaking another land, language speaking, and that's Mandarin and movie once and they cut it out. And so glad I did it. It was so hard to months to learn one sentence. That's what it was like like learning Mandarin. It was a black hat. And I thought it was so good. I would go to my friends who Chinese and say, I'm going to say something, and they would say. But it was like speaking man, it's just a completely different world and it completely different world. I mean, I always say all you have to do in a movie is sustainable performance for thirty seconds. That's it. That's as long as a take lass. So you got thirty seconds. Or when you're on stage. You can have a twelve page scene. And there are no edit buttons. There are no cuts, and that's just one scene. I've been I've done plays where I've done them for year. Six seven months, and you're on stage the entire time. Thirty seconds to sustain the performance. So it was much different. And you're acting opposite someone like Merrill street. So you're standing there going. I'm good. I'm really good. I'm good. I know that this is Meryl Streep, but I'm viola Davis and good, and then you're acting opposite her and you're thinking, oh my God. Oh my God. It's Meryl Streep. Oh my God. It's Mel Streep. And it's like hot cut by. Okay. Let's do it. Again. You're not in the scene. But. And the other part of movies. It's very difficult somewhat. Joe book we do in movies and TV sex appeal. Right. How cute you are. Do we like you? What's your cute rating? You know, I'm not good. I'm not so good at that. I think are you may not know it I seem to like you by Ola. I'm glad people like me. But you know, to actually manufacture right is is very very difficult. I'm just I'm just about just telling the story, you know, doing the work. I loved the work love it when you get nominated for an Oscar for one scene in doubt. Were you surprised by that nomination because it felt like a lot of people including Meryl Streep by the way as the beginning of something when she famously said get her a movie. Yeah. Was that a surprise to be nominated for that? Yeah. All of it is a surprise to me every bit of it is a surprise. You know, when I when I got the role I thought that was the reward and award. I didn't see me on that, you know, so and then being at the Oscars and the red carpet my first red carpet, I had a panic attack. It's one of the one to to panic attacks. I've ever had in my entire life. I would not recommend any. I would even wish that upon my worst enemy. I don't have a lot of enemies. But I would not wish that upon anybody who had it on the red carpet. Oh, yeah. I had a carbon. What does that mean? What happened besides shaking? Uncontrollably me besides hyperventilating. Besides a very beautiful woman named Meryl Streep who told me the day before. Viola listen, I can't be at that award show. But if I. Win. Can you accept the award for me? And I said God. Yes. Yes. I'll do that. And then I got there. I was like what? That led to the panic attack along with the red carpet, you know. And you know, I didn't wanna say kill you because match. Oh my God. You got through it. I don't think anybody noticed you survive. Pretty well. I know you say winning an Oscar isn't the end of the world. And and what's next, but to have Oscar winner in front of your name, every time someone says, it does mean something you're in a club with Meryl Streep and some of your other idols, and now people were friends of yours. What does it mean to be in that sort of elite club? You may not think of it that way, but people on the outside certainly do has it changed your life. So I know it's changed your career. I'm sure but does a change your life to be Oscar winner viola Davis. Yeah. It's changed. My life to be Oscar winner to be on TV show, the TV show really out on one life even more than the Oscar. Tell you the truth. Everything is all of it as the money all of it. I remember someone saying, you know, if you're not poor anymore. I was like I'm not. You didn't know what to do with that information is? But I'm yeah. It's it's totally. But I'll tell you what it's probably more of a transformation to people who observe my life than me being in it. Right me being in it. I don't know the biolo- that you talk about I don't I'm aware that you'd know it. But in my every day when I have my rap over my head, and I'm running around with my daughter, and we're going to Ralph's or bonds, and I'm cooking. I'm viola. I'm me, and you know, in terms of me getting through my everyday life and certainly living a meaningful life. It doesn't play a role except for the power of influence, which is what I'm doing here. The power of influence is awesome. I will say that the power to literally stand up on the stage and have people listen to you when you're coming from a pass when one saw, you know, one listened to you. So it's like now, what do you want to say, what do you want to do, you know? Well, it helps that you have such a presence to a lot of people have the platform, but they can't deliver it. I would argue the way you deliver. It have you always had this presence about you, you speak almost poetically. And I mean, it's not everybody who can pull that off. Is that part of being an actor being comfortable on stage? Well, well comfort is like a dirty word for an actor. You know, that they tell you not right for comfort right to be uncomfortable in the moment, you're alive and all of that you're not afraid of the spotlight and the stage. Clearly, well, sometimes I am. But I'm I'm used to it. I'm used to the spotlight. I guess I'm used to the camera being placed on me. I am. Thank you. For listening to the Sunday. Sit down podcast stick around to hear more from Oscar winner viola Davis, including what her younger self with think of the woman. She sees. Now, I'm Chuck Roosenburg. My new podcast youth, Rosenberg is based on a simple premise thoughtful conversations with interesting people like Jim Komi, Lisa, Monaco, and pre Perot are each of them took an oath as I did to support and defend the constitution of the United States. The oath with Chuck Rosenberg. Listen for free wherever you get your podcast. Welcome back to the Sunday sit down podcast now. More of my conversation with viola Davis. Do you have moments? Do you ever stop in your life and look back at the little girl in Rhode Island? Look at your life and go, I don't know how I got here. Thank god. I did. But I don't know how I got here. All the time. And we single day. You know, when I think about her a lot to first of all every day when I opened my refrigerator. When I wash my toilet. When I could put a robe on. When I have hot running water. When I know that there's no lead in the paint in my house. When I could get in the car, and I can go somewhere and not walk. She is with me every day to understand that every little thing in my life is to be celebrated. Okay. But I always say I always want to heal her because she was always so sort of traumatize grew up in dysfunction. My father who I loved more than anything was an alcoholic. It's just a byproduct a lot of times, poverty, right? That it always want to heal her. And this is one to reach back and go, you know, what? Everyone. I see in my life. I I I'm gonna remember you. I'm going to listen to people I'm gonna love people because it's like healing might the little girl. But it's like someone just recently said can you allow the little girl that little girl who survived who's pretty tough can you allow her to be so excited at the Fifty-three-year-old? She gets to become. Can you allow her to hug you and just squeal and? It took me a long time that do that. But I finally did it because I think that there's a grace gratefulness that needs to come and a joy that needs to come with celebrating the fruits of your labor that I had not allowed myself to do because I think that's also something that comes from poverty is survivors guilt. If is the making it out when you see other people who are still in the hole. So I'm allowing her to sort of hug means squeal, and I do things like this that feed my soul touch of sugar because I love my sisters who are here in New York with me, I want to live. Yeah, I'm reconciling my childhood. But as you say it took you awhile to get there. You weren't comfortable with your success and your fame and people like me telling you how great you are. Yeah. What what was the tipping point for you? How did you get there to say? You know, what it's okay that I am where I am. Well, you know, what a friend of mine said this once I mean, besides a lot. But a friend of mine said this once she said, you know, what by Ola when I tell my story a lot of times, I stand outside of it. And I think to myself. Wow, you want awesome. That is such an unbelievable testimony. You know, then you begin to see how God we're miracles in your life. And then I started really listening to my story and understood how sort of awesome it was. Incredible. I just thought you just work hard and you get out. That's it. It's nothing credible about it. So the more I've told my story the more I haven't braced it. But I gotta keep telling it and not live outside of it like renege Brown says in Joseph Campbell says when you go, and you going out there to that call to adventure in you're going out there to find that elixir that answer to your life that you gotta go into that inner cave, and you gotta go in there and slay those dragons, and I find that when I went into those innermost caves, or that Imos cave that the dragon I needed to slave was me. That sort of hurt in that pain of soda railing at God. Like, why do I have to be that kid it's growing up or filthy houses, and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And why do I do that anger that sort of pain and all the bed that that innermost cave and slay her and understand that I'm still alive? I had the power of influence that God has always been with me. Upward bound program. Prepared tour enrollment program. Teachers have been awesome, great actors like Cecily Tyson Meryl Streep people like my sister, the ropes that have been thrown at me. That's what I found in the inner most cave, and then, you know, I- Nickelback after I found that answer to sort of give that elixir to people who are still there that there is a way to live a life of significance and reconcile way, you are now that there's a way out and there's a way to make your life meaningful forget per day Brown. I'm following you through the wall. You're you gotta get you. I'm sorry. I think you take it over ever. He's awesome. I'm I would be derelict in my duty. If I didn't ask you if there's going to be more of the show, you mentioned. Yeah. That's for ABC to decide. I think that analysts Keating has more in her. That's what I think I sort of seeing something. Is that a suspicion or something a suspicion a hope that they'll be more? I need for analysts to have some labs. I really do. You know, it's just like me people think that I'm not fun. I am so much fun. If you come to my house, I'm telling you, we have me and my husband green parties, you know, but I need to have some land. Let's give those things at the laugh. Okay. She doesn't get it up for that. I also want to ask you about work. You do with your husband and your production companies. And we were just talking briefly about the manual documentary that you're executive producing with Steph curry. Boy, I've only seen the trailer. But it looks incredibly moving. Absolutely. It looks like something you did the right way. Why was that a project you wanted to take on? Well, we met the victims of the AME church in Charleston. When I was I had to present them the award the glamour magazine event. And and then we spoke to them afterwards at the party really sat down with them. And you know, the big thing them is. They said we're not gonna live in hate. We could live in forgiveness. What struck me as forgiveness is a journey. But. I just didn't want people to forget that story. I didn't want people to forget that tragedy. You know, so often with the number of tragedies that happen in this country. It's amazing. How you have to keep reminding people of it. They they remember it for a while. It's it's on the news. It's trending and then because of the twenty four hour news cycle within seconds. It's forgotten again. I didn't want people to forget. I felt like I opened to them, you know, the pain that they still goal to losing. The loved ones as a son a mom. I didn't want people to forget that. And how awesome it is? Like, I told you before they use whatever power. I have as a source of of influence, and so when it came to us as a producing project we wanted to do that we just felt like we had to. I applaud everything you're doing with this platform, especially on diabetes. I told you my father has diabetes. So it means a lot that you've given your time to this. Thank you so much.

Brown Girl Joy (Bonus Episode)

"Brown girl radiant celebrates the brilliance of women of color the reflective conversations and story. I'm your host pure brown joy. Hello to allah my radiant friends. I hope you're twenty. Twenty one is off to an excellent start. We are still celebrating. Brown girls abroad the season. I'm very excited about this. Bonus episode which features mice seven year. Old niece it has a hit of international flair through the eyes of the child who is full of joy happiness and wonder. I think it's obvious that we all need a little laughter especially because we are still in the middle of this. Pandemic january started off with a lot of hurt frustration after we saw domestic terrorists and white supremacist. Try to overthrow our democracy with the insurrection at the capital. But i don't want to give a lot of energy to that moment because we're going to continue to discuss it for years. As america tries to heal itself from the sins of its racist history and the double standards of how justice is administered. I prefer to focus on positive events that have taken place this month and the optimism. For what twenty. Twenty one bring into our lives. I'm going to quickly. Share some highlight from this month before we hear the sweet interview with my niece spurs. I would be remiss. If i didn't acknowledge that inauguration day january twentieth was beautiful. We witnessed history as the first black and asian woman. Kamala harris was sworn in as vice president. On that day. I had a mixture of emotions. I was happy about the new administration yet. Still very heartbroken about many aspects of our nation's history primarily how blacks have been treated for the last four hundred years which i recognize can't be repaired in four years just as it was not repaired in eight years under the obama administration. One of the most impactful lessons. I learned about inauguration. Speeches was in the eighth grade. Our history teacher had us read the prior speeches of various presidents. And then compare it to what they actually accomplish during their administration they were often overly ambitious. And some of our former presidents just straight up lie jal president joe biden head to deliver one of the most difficult inauguration speech is due to the climate in our country with the pandemic and beyond spoke about unity. Which is a beautiful concept that i pray can become a reality. I will continue to choose hope and believe that progress will be made and of course always stay prayerful because as isaiah nine six says the government shall be upon his shoulders when it says his shoulders. Isaiah was prophesying about the birth. Of jesus christ not a democrat or a republican. I loved the way black girl. Magic and poet laureate. Amanda gorman discussed the complexity of america in her inaugural poem titled the hill. We climb she said yes. We are far from polished far from pristine but that doesn't mean we are striving to form a union that is perfect. We are striving to forge our union with purpose to compose a country committed to all cultures colors characters and conditions of man and so we lift our gaze is not to what stands between us but what stands before as we close the divide because we know to put our future. I we must. I put our differences aside the final thing. I'm going to say about inauguration. Did you see are forever. I fell slaying in plum. Everything it's been a couple of weeks. And i'm still not over how gorgeous she looked and i know it's not what was most important about that day but other than hearing amanda gorman's poem seeing michelle's fabulousness was one of my favorite moments speaking of the beauty of our culture. One of my goals. This year is to complete multiple audio books by black authors. I completed my first book for the year this month. By comedian amber ruffin and her sister. Lacey lamar the book is called. You will never believe what had happened to lacey crazy stories about racism. This audio book is both brilliant and hilarious listening to it. Made me feel like i was out to dinner with a couple of girlfriends or in this covid era it was like being on zoom happy hour so i highly recommend it and i will let you know what other books i complete during black history month and throughout the year. Feel free to send me suggestions and let me know your thoughts as we are about to enter into a month of intentional celebration of black history. I have to acknowledge that we recently lost a queen. A- gift a legend a national treasure actress sisley tyson who just turned ninety six back in december. If you don't know who she is. Please stop this. Podcast right now and google her. I can't go on without knowing about her legacy and immeasurable contributions to our culture in one of her final interviews just days before she passed gayle king asked miss tyson. What she wanted people to remember about her. She said i tried my best. Her best was excellence. Cecily tyson was black excellence. She is literally the definition of a goat. Greatest of all time. She was such an inspiration to black women everywhere with herbs. Beautiful brown skin. She gave us a standard of beauty and she was a trailblazer breaking so many barriers. I made sure to download the audio version of her new memoir which she released two days before she passed away. It's called just as i am as i honor one of our elders. I also want to celebrate the next generation. My guest today is my niece. naomi who just turned seven this month. She is a big sister and she has two younger brothers elisha who has three and emmanuel who is fine you will hear her talk about them and this interview has a few surprises along the way because kids have such expansive imaginations. It's unscripted and i wasn't sure what she was going to say but it ended up being a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy it and take a few moments to smile ready. Okay you're gonna talk in the microphone action. I'm so excited to be back on brown girl radiance podcast with my favorite guest and my favorite niece. Mail me last time. I had her on. My show was in december of twenty eighteen. And now it's january twenty twenty one and she is seven. She just had a birthday. Send it on. Sunday january seventeenth and when we first met her. She had one little brother and now she has two little brothers. So naomi tell me how has your life changed now that you have two little brothers. How's it being a big sister. Pretty great the best part about being a big sister is that like when a man of cries. I don't have to like just pick. I don't like just have to call when to get him. Cut his throwaway. It's just like next to us. So so if i hear him crying i can just go pick them up and bring him to our room tain gapped because sometimes we would go beyond our or leisure would be sleeping so i take him for a little walk around the room. You're such a good big sister. Yeah it's it's fun being a big sister. 'cause you get to be like you're the mom of the when mommy is not at home. I'm going to be I'm little mommy the boys. Yes yes you do a great job. You do a good job with them to what they have fun with you. Yeah but a man who usually has fun with me. 'cause we don't go downstairs when i hear him crying much 'cause if i feel like he's hungry we we good stairs like again. The women picked him up or sometimes he might not wanna come out the room he he closes it when we are in it So that's why we stay in the room with alexa. and you play gang. Playtime zeke.

Viola Davis

"Hey Guys Willie geist here with another episode of The Sunday. Sit Down podcast my thanks as always clicking and listening along my guest. This week is a Hollywood powerhouse house. She is the Oscar Tony Emmy and Golden Globe winning actress Viola Davis we walk through not just an extraordinary career but an extraordinary life she was born on a former plantation in a one room shack in South Carolina moved as an infant up to central falls Rhode Ryland with her family where she lived in destitute poverty roaches in the house. You'll hear all about it counting only on her school lunch for a meal every day to rise from that place to where she is now is an incredible story and you're going to hear every bit of it. She went to the juilliard school she went on became a Tony Winning winning actress on Broadway and then worked her way onto Hollywood's a-list with breakout roles in the help and then an Oscar winning performance alongside Denzel Washington offenses not to mention starring role in the hit T._v.. Show that earned her an emmy how to get away with murder interesting to hear viola talk about fame still kind of uncomfortable with it knows how fleeting it is and talks about giving back and doing the important things with her platform among them her latest project a documentary Patrick called a touch of sugar. It's about the diabetes crisis in our country. She was diagnosed with prediabetes a few years ago and it runs in her family using the platform platform to talk about an epidemic in this country a powerful conversation Viola Davis. I have to say sucks you in. She speaks so passionately and powerfully she is inspirational and she's here now on the Sunday. Sit Down podcast. Thank you bye again. We're as a sort of an interview series. We're conducting. We start at thirty thirty rock then we move here. We'll do another one somewhere downtown later today. I'll some keep talking. I have to say I didn't know this about you. The diabetes that's in in your family and touched your life enough that you wanted to be the voice of this documentary film. I did want to be the voice because it you know the the thirty million adults that have type two diabetes the eighty four million have prediabetes and then I think about my family it has been affected by my two sisters my aunt who succumb to the disease after two amputations my grandmother it it's an unacademic obviously and it and it seems like it's almost everyone story and when it becomes everyone story and but then no no one really talks about it then I always feel like someone needs to blow the lid off of it and get it out into the public guy. That's why I'm now leading this film. That's why I want to be a part of it. <hes> there is something about the aloneness of anything that someone is suffering from that I feel lose my sort of mission in life and then it came knocking on your door as well about a year and a half ago when you got word I have prediabetes you know and I went in for Hormone Moan tests and then my doctor took the one seat test which is Comprehensive Test that measures you average glucose in the last two three months so you take a test four times a year. I didn't know anything about that and then she told me the results and I had to go to work I was going to how to get away with murder and I remember it just leveled me. It just stopped me. I didn't know what to do. It's like what can I do exercise. I eat right. It's almost it's like waiting for this sort of silent. I Dunno Marmi to come right in decimate you <hes> and you're not armed <hes> <hes> and so I just felt like what do I just become hyper vigilant. It doesn't mean that I have to develop type two diabetes <music> Beatty's but what do I have to change my lifestyle which is already good to something. That's better in a busy with a busy schedule and that's the thing how do you manage with this disease. How do you do it and what do you say to people who are living with this disease in terms of hope because the numbers are staggering one in ten adults in this country live with it and many many more like you were pre-diabetic? Is there more research being done is there's something on the horizon that you can point to and say we're working on this. Well listen. I hope that there are you're more drugs on the horizons or something that can be done. I'm sure that there are my sisters are always conversing with each other every single goal day about something that can be done. <hes> and everyone's diabetes is different some our diet and I'll wait related. Some some are genetic. There are some things that you can do to manage the disease. There is a website that created a touch of sugar film DOT Com. I <hes> but that's what I'm doing. I exercise I think about my carb count <hes> I'm hyper vigilant but I do have the genetic factor there right you know <hes> that's what I can. That's what I said and it's all there in the title <unk> a touch of sugar. Some people may not be familiar with that term but you talk about growing up as just an accepted part of life. She's got a touch of sugar. He's got a touch of sugar absolutely because I I was born. In Saint Matthew South Carolina literally singleton plantation and everybody got a diabetes diagnosis. It was called sugar. You've got the sugar and busy. She got the sugar and it was almost sometime. said in silence you know almost like something you should be ashamed of and just the reference to it as diabetes shows the lack of education in what it is when it came from how to manage it and of of course the State Bowl of African American Hispanic communities really have high numbers of diabetes the staple of our diet diet corn bread rice. I remember we used to make sugar candy. When we were kids? You Know How you make sure candy with CRISCO and sugar you put it in the frying pan and you heat it up and then you take the heat off and you wait for it to just harden and that was sugar candy. You know you ate cornstarch our charge the box. That's a big thing you know down south. Nobody ever knew that those factors could absolutely be the the cause and the root of diabetes. It was what you did right. It was what you knew. Those foods are very cheap very accessible well and so there we go so now you've gotten to a root of the problem which is poverty which is access to good foods which is access to food ooh to fruit and vegetables and eating well and education about the importance of that that obviously is a much bigger problem to tackle but also a piece of the problem that you can speak to because as you said it was part of how you grew up once again it was I mean I always say I grew up pope which is a wrong lower their poor you you know and but I I'm one of the forty six million people in this country who live in poverty. That's what twenty four twenty five thousand dollars a year if you I have two kids and more and that's before taxes and I just you have access to nothing you you have access to nothing you know. It's what you call even food desserts. You know there are no whole foods in poor communities. There's barely Ralph's or on you know so. That's something that needs to be addressed. It's just something that no no one talks about. I can't tell you how many speaking gigs that I've done around the country and when I mentioned poverty and I mentioned just the every day of poverty that I don't can't tell you how many people say no one ever talks about that. There is a shame attached to it when my mom when we were young we grew up on public assistance and one of the things that my mom did she really wanted a different life for us and so she really was involved on welfare reform and one of the things that she really really fought for was a health clinic in the city of Central Falls Blackstone Valley community the Action Health Clinic. She fought for her and a bunch of other poor women who were living on public assistance because otherwise you know you sort of have to wait for any disease to get completely out of control to walk to Memorial Hospital and sit in the E._r.. For five six hours before Oh you got treated and so we had that little health clinic there wench didn't provide much but what it was was a source of information. I sat there as a eight nine year old and I I was taught about nutrition and so it was good for me but the the level to which she had to fight for that is the sort of warriors we need within those impoverished communities or people walk outside those communities who see the issue who see the problem and take it upon themselves. You need the same warrior spirit on the outside of the diabetes. He's epidemic as you need from the inside and what I mean by that is even with my prediabetes diagnosis with my two sisters diabetes. You gotta be a warrior with your health. The Self Care Aspect of it is so enormous in terms of just managing it understanding it understanding the root causes of your you just got a tackle it you know and we that's how we have to be about the poverty crisis. Also you see it as important. What can you do? How can you stand in the gap and there are people who will say yes but how can I worry about having a good diet when I don't even have a diet to begin with I mean you've talked about the school lunch? Sometimes the only meal you would ever have in a day or the best meal for sure that you had during the day so I think for some people getting a meal is the is the goal getting a healthy meal might be a nice bonus. If you can get there. We've got to be able to provide food for It out there and and people who understand that a lot of those foods provided in schools have a high sugar content all all of those things but in impoverished communities. Certainly you know here's the thing we care about each other. You know I'm sorry to sound combine and make it a grand sweeping statement but the people who have and the people who get to a position where they have the resources says need to reach back. I know that when I was a kid we had so many different programs that helped me even to just get an education. I mean beyond the health clinic that provided you know a lot of information. There were some in the city on this up with bomb prepartory enrollment programs. There are things that you can do outreach things that people in power that have some some semblance of anything they can throw someone the rope. Certainly this is what the documentary is all about it. They've set up the website light. My husband always says you got to plant the seed. You don't know how it's going to grow but you have to plan it and <hes> I know that when I was six years old I was always begging from the inside for help. It was was like a begging for help and I think that people who have not there was always sort of a silent begging for help and hope <hes> Ooh if you see it if you then address it if you have the power to do that and you're doing that and your your journey doing that with you as much much as I can do in any number of ways and certainly with this documentary narrating it then and getting the message out there and not stigmatizing something that is affecting like you said one out of ten people but <HES> but I've done it in other aspects too you and I will tell you that it does make a difference your your journey to be in a position to help the way you do help not just on this but on hunger is an extraordinary one when people hear your story or as you said born on a plantation in South Carolina yeah growing up as you've said abject poverty in Rhode Island. What was your childhood like. What was it like to be a little girl. The way you grew up while it was like everyone's childhood filled with happy memories and you know going to the reservoir and you know playing with my sisters and bicycles and all of that and it was also filled with the darkness of when you pour so you have bad housing you just do nobody regulates housing for poor people. They just don't so we lived in condemn building building certainly apartments infested with rats never having a phone bad plumbing filling the bucket full of water pouring the water in the toilet and flush it certainly the clothing shoes always chew tight because we bought everything from Salvation Army called Saint Vincent de Paul and and you know just the stigma of poverty the feeling on the outside but feeling invisible bull a lack of access which is why I talk about it all the time and it's uncomfortable for me. It really is it it. It's uncomfortable for me to talk about it but I always find that once you blow the lid off of anything in wants wants to tell the truth it becomes a domino effect and it gives people permission to tell the truth and then it gives another person and another person and another person and soon what it becomes a revolution a revolution and it becomes the norm and it stigmatizes it and then once you. D- stigmatizes it. D- stigmatize it then you have to address it in a small way. I say what I say a lot of times because it's a little narcissism in me that I it's a demand for people to see me. You see me I am because I didn't have the power to do that as a kid and I feel that way about all things that people are suffering in silence with is I want them to be seen an heard. I hate when people are not seen in heard because I think the next step is metaphorically speaking death and I think that that's happening in the world too much. I think that we're seeing the side effects of that too much even zeitgeist now and you're in the unique position to have lived it so when you talk about poverty you know from whence it comes. I mean you've been there. You said it makes you uncomfortable to talk about. Is that because it reminds you of those times times what's uncomfortable. When you talk about poverty not enough talk about it you go online. Is anyone on the instagram or twitter your page talking about. They're talking about this great. I don't know Alexander McQueen jacket. They just bought or the new diet that they're on in how they have type ADS now. They're an extraordinary mom and they can juggle being you know a C._e._o.. Of A company being a mom being the wife and then making homemade meals. Everything is about winning and everything is about conquering and everything is about about a great result. Nobody wants to talk about the other okay. There is no romance in sexiness sexiness involved with poverty. There is no romance in sexiness involved with being invisible and not having access to health care the housing to fresh foods <hes>. There's no swagger to it and that's hard. You know it's Rene Brown. Mom says to own your story. Either you own your story or you stand outside of it hustling for your worth. I'm not hustling for my worth anymore more. I feel very much like I was born worthy but I know that now and that's why he does make you feel comfortable because I understand how I'm going to be seen with it but the other part of it is just demand <hes> given where you came from given all you went through as a child. Where does your light come from. Where did you say I can grow up can be an Oscar winning actor. When did you start to see yourself that way that I can step out of this childhood into something bigger and better for myself. What gave you that hope you know what I don't know if I always saw it. I'm just going to be honest with you. I think I believed it a huge amount of time in my life but seeing a physical manifestation of what you want to be a mentor as Joseph Campbell says in the journey video when you have your call to adventure in your catapulted out of your ordinary life what you don't fit in and a mentor into your path someone who's who's who's seen the road who's WHO's paid the way and they come and they show you the path yeah. That was Miss Tyson. That was my sister Diane. That was someone who teaches you how to master a skill teaches you how to fail how to succeed in. Someone just likes you simply too. That's what helped me now. I have to tell you. There's a cap on awards <music>. There's a cap on cuteness in. I don't know being on people's most beautiful list. There's a cap to it if someone tells you. There's not a cap to it. They're lying what you say. There's a cap to greatness. There's a cap defame. We've seen fifty million documentaries of people who just destroyed. We're there live on top of their game because the truth of the matter is is that everyone fights for success because they feel like once you hit it. You've got it. You've got about the Elixir. That is the magic elixir that Joseph Campbell talks about right that is not the elixir. The Elixir is living the life of significance. The Elixir is living a life that is bigger than you. That's what it is and if you're not doing and then you're not doing anything nothing that message needs to be pounded in people and I think that probably you'll see less of even what I'm talking about. Now which is people living with the disease where a lot of people not throwing them a rope and it needs to be part of like sort of normalize conversation even when we re talking to kids you know instead of saying we want mixed race premed become a lawyer. What about living a life. That's meaningful like urban says the great existentialist psychologists who says I will not truly be dead until the last person who has a memory of me dies. You know we want that to be hundreds of years. From now. We want people to benefit from our legacy. Whatever legacy you have hundreds of years from now now and that's not just a cute face. It's not trophies on a shelf right. Absolutely we have the we. We live in very we. We saw our country. It's a very wealthy country. I think that we can come up with a solution in terms of how to help people who are suffering even in terms of health. That's very well said but I do want to ask about those trophies on your shelf. That's okay that's all right. So when I'm I'm curious when you your first acting Gig. When did you even get into that. When did you know that was a possibility coming from where you came from oh I could do this. Miss Tyson changed inch the game for me because she looked like needs you like my mom. I started acting when I basically was eight or nine my sisters and I because because we wanted something to do. We would write skits. We'd right WHO's skits and we would have rehearsals. We would have rewrites. We would have a wardrobe. The budget and then I started acting really acting in high school in Drama Competitions Rhode Island Drama Festival. I got a scholarship when I was fourteen to young people school of the Performing Arts at the travel three hours one way just to get to the school and once again everyone who we went to the school they were coming up in Peugeot's and Saab's and B._M._W.'s. I was coming on foot proud to be there and I always say that I'm an O._G.. Because people ask me that question. When did you get started? I have done so many plays so many productions Sion's in church basements and basketball courts off Broadway on Broadway regional theatre. I've worked with everyone. I love the work <hes> I loved paying my dues. I just thought it was such an awesome thing for people to say so viola. So what do you do to actually actually say I'm an actor. I thought it was awesome and like anything led to juilliard it led to getting an agent. Just created needed a domino effect and it brought me to Hollywood and here I am. It's funny almost every actor I've ever spoken to talk about their career. Say People see the end product which is me standing on a stage with a statue in my hand and they don't know the twenty twenty five years that led up to that they off Broadway. Nobody knows the truth of anything. You know. They really don't if you're born with a statue in your hand there was a little work came before it yeah and they also kind of think you just this kind of stroking the statue every day. You know I don't look at the statutes so what was the most exciting when you get out of juilliard and you get it onto Broadway and you're nominated for Tony Pretty quickly in that time afterward. What was the most exciting first day for you on Broadway was walking out onto the state also here I am I can tell you exactly what it was opening night of seven guitars on Broadway when I think about everything I believed that being an actor was that was it walking into your dressing room and Florida's ceiling flowers the all the camera crew outside the theatre working with August Wilson on my mom and Dad Ed being in the audience and my dad crying during the curtain call the cameras you know everybody taking pictures and you know movie? Cameras were then my father standing up crying clapping he didn't know what to do. We shaking my mom it. It was everything that I thought being an actor was it was the work and the joy of the work. It was the smell of the theater and it was working with the Greek playwright August Wilson the great director Lloyd Richards Great Actors. I was like I met this is it I've arrived. I don't need anything else in my life. I wish there because now I know I'm like really you really thought that was it right but that's the journey right you feel like you've reached the mountaintop and then Oh there are more mountains after that are you've reached the point you always dream getting and then and you win a Tony for King Hedley win another Tony for fences and now you're sort of like the queen of Broadway for that time I mean that must have been an extraordinary ordinary thing for somebody who was playing church basements to start her career. It was an extraordinary thing you know to dream the biggest dream you can possibly imagine imagine in your life and having no kind of foresight of how that was going to happen and then all of a sudden it happens you you you you you sort of hit it. It's sort of like magic and it speaks to the power of belief and hope and hard work <hes> but life doesn't end there. I always say the three most important words that happens especially after you have big old trophy in your hand or anything the three most important words are and now what and now what what's the next thing what's the next chapter. Denzel always says the Denzel has the best quotes by the way I don't go out on a new says. There's no u-haul in the back of a hearst you sort of can't take it with you and once ensue hit it. That's what you realize. It's like. Oh my God. Oh I got an Oscar. Your heart is about potatoing and then you go home and then you sit down amount and then the next day and it's like and how what what's the next page and <hes> that's sort of where I'm Matt Right now. <hes> what was it like to jump into movies from the stage given the fact that you built your whole career on stage work. What did a movie set set feel like to you when you first started doing like speaking another land language speaking Mandarin at Mandarin and movie once and they cut it out? I'm so glad I did it. It was so hard it took two months to learn one sentence. That's what it was like like learning Mandarin. It was a black hat and I thought I was so good I would go to my friends who were Chinese and say I'm going to say something and they would say but it was like speaking. Man is just a completely different world and it completely different world. I mean I always say all you have to do in a movie is sustainable performance for thirty seconds. That's it that's as long as a take glass so you got thirty seconds all right. When you're on stage you can have a twelve page scene and there are no edit buttons? There are no cuts and that's just one scene. I've been I've done plays where I've done them for year six seven months and you're on stage the entire time thirty seconds to sustain the performance permits so it was much different and you're acting opposite someone like Meryl Streep so you standing there going. I'm good. I'm really good. I'm good I know that this street but I'm Viola Davis and good and then you're acting opposite her and you're thinking Oh my God. Oh my God it's Meryl Streep. Oh my God it's Meryl Streep and it's like hot Kat by okay. Let's not in the scene but the other part of movies. It's very difficult so much of what we do in movies and T._v.. Sex Appeal right cute you are. Do we like like you. What's your cue rating? You know I'm not. I'm not so good at that I think are you may not know it. I seem to like Viola. I'm glad people like me but you know to actually manufacture right is is very very difficult. I'm just I'm just about just telling the story you know. Doing the work loved the work. Love it. When you get nominated for an Oscar for one scene in doubt were you surprised by that nomination because it felt like a lot of people including including Meryl Streep by the way as the beginning of something when she famously said <hes> get her a movie yeah? was that a surprise to be nominated for that yeah all of it is a surprise to me. Every bit of it is a surprise you know when I when I got the role I thought that was the reward and award I didn't see beyond that you know so and then being at the Oscars the red carpet carpet. I had a panic attack. It's one of the one to panic attacks I've ever had in my entire life AAC. I would not recommend any I would even wish that upon my worst enemy. I don't have a lot of enemies but I would not wish that upon anybody who had added on the red carpet Oh yeah I had car and what does that mean what happened the sides shaking uncontrollably me besides hyperventilating besides provides a very beautiful woman named Meryl Streep who told me the day before Viola listen. I can't be at that award show but if I win and can you accept the award for me and I said Yes yes. I'll do that and then I got there. I was like what it's just that led to the panic attack along with the red carpet you know and you know I didn't want to say will kill Oh you because Oh my God you got through it. I don't think anybody noticed you survive pretty well. I know you say winning. An Oscar isn't the end of the world and what's next but to have Oscar winner in front of your name every time someone says it does mean something you're in a club with Meryl Streep and some of your other idols and now people are friends of yours. What does it mean to be in that sort of elite club? You may not think of it that way but people on the outside certainly do has it changed your life's. I know it's changed your career. I'm sure but does it. Change Your Life to be Oscar winner Viola Davis Yeah. It's changed my life to be Oscar winner to be on a T._v.. Show T._V. Show really trans out on my life even more than the Oscar take the truth. Everything is all of it as the money all of it. I remember someone saying you know if you're not poor anymore. I I was like you didn't know what to do with that. Information is but I'm yeah it's it's totally but I'll tell tell you what it's probably more of a transformation to people who observe my life than me being in it right me being in it. I don't know the Viola that you talk talk about. I don't I'm aware that you know it but in my every day when I have my rap over my head and I'm running around with with my daughter and we're going to Ralph's or bonds and I'm cooking. I'm Viola. I'm me and and you know in terms of me getting through my everyday life and certainly living a meaningful life. It doesn't play a role except except for the power of influence. Which is what I'm doing here? The power of That the power to literally stand up on the stage and have people listen to you when you're coming from a pass when one saw you know. No one listened to you so it's like now. What do you WANNA say. What do you want to do? You know well. It helps that you have such a presence to a lot of people have the platform but they can't deliver it. I would argue the way you deliver it. Have you always had this presence about you. You speak almost poetically and I I mean. It's not everybody who can pull that off is that part of being an actor being comfortable on stage well well comfort is like a dirty word for an actor. You know that they tell you not right for comfort right to be uncomfortable in the moment you're alive and all that you're not afraid of the spotlight and on stage clearly well. Sometimes I am but I'm I'm used to it. I'm used to the spotlight. I guess I'm used to the camera being placed on me. I am thank you for listening to the Sunday.

Do you have moments. Do you ever stop in your life and look back at the little girl in Rhode Island. Look at your life and go. I don't know how I got here. Thank God I did but I don't know how. I got here all the time every single day you know when I they think about her a lot to first of all it's every day when I opened my refrigerator when I wash my toilet when I could put a robe on when I have hot running water when I know that there's no lead in the pink in my house when I could get in a car and I can go somewhere and not walk. She is with me every day to understand that every little thing in my life is to be celebrated okay but I always say I always want to heal her because she was always so sort of traumatized. I grew up in dysfunction my father ah who I loved more than anything was an alcoholic. It's just a byproduct a lot of times poverty right that it always want to heal her. I just want to reach back and go. You know what everyone I see in my life. I I I'm GONNA remember you. I'm going to listen to people I'm. GonNa love people because it's like healing might the little girl but it's like someone just recently said. Can you allow the little girl that little girl who survived. WHO's pretty tough. Can you allow her to be so excited. At the fifty-three-year-old she gets to become <hes>. Can you our the hug you and just squeal and it took me a long time to do that but I finally did it because I think that there's a grace gratefulness that needs to come and Ajoy that needs succumbed with celebrating the fruits of your Labor that I have not allowed myself to do because I think that's also something that comes from poverty is survivor's. REIVER's guilt is making it out when you see other people who are still in the hole so I'm allowing allowing you to sort of hug me and squeal and I do things like this that feed my soul touch of sugar because I love my sisters who we're here in New York with me. I want the live. I'm reconciling my childhood but as you say it took you a while aalto get there. You're comfortable with your success and your fame and people like me telling you how great you are yeah. What what was the tipping point for you. How did you get there to say. You know what it's okay that I am where I am well. You know what a friend of mine said this once I mean besides therapy but a friend of mine said this once. She said you know what Viola when I tell my story a lot of times. I stand outside of it. I think to myself wow you awesome. That is such an unbelievable testimony. You know then you begin to see how God work miracles in your life and then I started really listening to my story and understood how sort of awesome it was uh-huh incredible. I just thought you just work hard and you get out. That's it. It's nothing credible about it. So the more I've told my story the more I have embraced it but I gotta keep telling it and not live outside of it like grenade. Brown says as Joseph Campbell says when you go and you going out there to that call to adventure and you're going out there to find that Elixir that answer to your life that you gotta go into that Inner Cave and you gotta go in there and slay those dragons and I find that when I went into those innermost caves or that infamous cave that the dragon I needed to slay was me that sort of hurt in that pain of sort of railing at God like why do I have to be that kid growing up or filthy healthy houses and Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah and why do I do that anger that sort of pain and all the bad that that innermost cave and slay her and understand that I'm still alive. I have the power of influence that God has always been with me. Upward bound program preparatory enrollment program teachers have been awesome. Great actors like Cecily Tyson Meryl Streep People like like my sister the ropes that have been thrown at me. That's what I found in the inner most cave and then you know I- nickelback after I found that answer to sort of give that Elixir to people who are still there there is a way to live a life of significance significance and reconcile way. You are now that there's a way out and there's a way to make your life meaningful forget per day Brown now. I'm following you through the wall. You're you gotta get you. I'm sorry but I think you take it over awesome. I would be derelict in my duty. Judy if I didn't ask you if there's going to be more of the show you mentioned how yeah that's A._B._C. to decide. I think that analysts Keating in has more in her. That's what I think I sort of. I'm seeing something. Is that a suspicion or something. It's a suspicion in a hope that they'll be more. I need for analysts to have some labs. I really do. I you know it's just like me. People think that I'm not fun. I I am so much fun. If you come to my house I'm telling you we have me and my husband would have green parties. You know but I need to have some lab. Let's give her another sees at the laugh. Okay that doesn't get enough for that. I also want to ask you about work you do with your husband and your production company and we were just talking briefly about the manual documentary that DUHR executive producing with steph curry boy. I've only seen the trailer but it looks incredibly moving. Absolutely it looks like something you did the the right way. Why was that a project. You wanted to take on well. We met the victims of the Ame church in Charleston when I was and I had to present them with the award that the Glamour Magazine Event and and then we spoke to them afterwards at the party really sat down with them mm-hmm and you know the big thing with them is they said we're not gonNA live in. Hey we're going to live and forgiveness. What struck me as forgiveness is a journey yeah but I just didn't Walk People Forget that story. I didn't want people to forget that tragedy. You know so often with the number of tragedies at that happened in this country. It's amazing how you have to keep reminding people of it they they remember it for a while. It's it's on the news. It's trending and then because of the twenty four hour news cycle within seconds. It's forgotten again. I didn't want people to forget. I felt like I owed it to them. You know the pain that they still goal to with losing their loved ones as a son a mom <hes> I didn't want people to forget that and how awesome it is like I told you before they use whatever power I have as a source of of influence and so when it came to us as a producing goosing project we wanted to do that. We just felt like we had to. It looks fabulous. I applaud everything you're doing with this platform especially on diabetes.

One and only steve harvey got a radio show man. Oh man oh man. Wow i think about all the things god has done for me is overwhelming at times and i want everybody to have that feeling in to share in that feeling of completion and satisfaction. An only reason. I got this in the thousands time i've said it is because i formed a relationship with my creator period. That's it that's that's it. I i i can't tell you anything else you know. I've always had a strong work ethic my father. Put that in me. My father's conversations with me growing up was always Constantly about work hard. don't be lazy. be a man. Do what you say you do. Yada yada yada yada. Yada monosso tied him. Father times i was going man. What is with this dude right here man. Every time we have a conversation has got to be about work has got to be about you. Know man is doing your best trion heart. You know working being honest. Do what you say you do. But that was his mission. Okay tell you how much. I appreciate that now. I can't even can't even put it into words. When i think about momon and what he was to me and I just saw man. I'm so grateful for that balance. I had in my life and my father was a fighter. He fought on the weekends. You know my father used to come home with his was closed toe off of. He put a fresh shirt on he. Go back mommy's talk about befallen the fighting holiday us liquid. You always fight. You know a little bit add rubbed off on me to you. Know that that kind of got into me. And i didn't understand that either but then under same turn. My mother was a sunday school teacher for forty years so her conversation was never about fighting. Anything all about love and understanding it doing other than you would add and do unto you. My mom was sunday schoolteacher. So i i learned about faith had to go to sunday. School prayer meeting bible study young people meeting choir rehearsal in ours at church man so much i was actually looking at. There's gotta be an alternative to this. You know one was a little kid. Even dow's thinking at one point man without looking hale because it's gotta be some cooler than this going on every day it. It got crazy for me but the balance between knows to people created who i am today and i want you to understand that the things that you are in your past have helped create who you are to date if you view it the right way everything that has happened to you and your past has happened to you for a reason and is usually for the good if you view it that way but if you on the other hand are type of person who can't move forward because you are allowing you pass to stop you from having your future then you. My friend adored a disservice to your life. You are not honoring god's blessings you are not taking advantage of the game knowledge wisdom and experience of your life example if you are a woman and you are always talking about a former relationship. What he did to me if he had not did this to me. I wouldn't be in this place today. I thought i had a man. Now i ain't got no man La la if i you know he came along and i was doing just swail. He just came in and he just lied to me. He lied to me. He did distant then he cheated then he left. All of that to choose say can very well be true. Have you thought that. Maybe maybe somewhere in god's infinite wisdom that he knew that you had made a mistake in pick it him anyway maybe he knew you had made a mistake in saying yes or i do to him anyway or komo moving and so what he did was based on your decision. Now to say yes i do. Come on let's move in together. That was yo decision to you. Ain't go to him about this one. You may dis-decision based on that decision and all the negative things that started happening he allowed you to get away from it now. How you got away from. It is always not the choice of ours. See you stuck on the fact that he left that he walked out. But let me share this with you when he was there. How good was he to you. How good was he for. You see you got you got to stand. You got to look to blessed. The blessing is now you own your own. Now you walk in your house. ain't nobody in. That would have disruptive spirit. Now you go home. You can take your clothes off. Walk around like he won't to now you go home. You can sit down and look at tv or catch your breath. If you want to. Your kids don't have to see y'all arguing all the time. Have you looked at the blessing in it but now if you go keep looking at the negative then guess what now. You can't move forward because you keep allowing your pass to keep you from moving forward if god has bought you through it. Why don't you move on from it. Look you got through it. He gone he ain't coming back. he got somebody else. So you going to sit there and just keep tripping calls he gone and he got somebody else a pick yourself up. Thank god for the blessed. It didn't feel like a blessing while he was going through it and all the pain of him leaving the divorce and all that mess yup got it. When you get through it all of that. You ain't too. I warned been left. You ain't the first woman been divorced. You ain't the first one been in a bad relationship. Pick your self up. Thank god for the blessing and move forward in your life because maybe when you quit complaining maybe you'll find out that god has something in store for you that he wants you to have but he can't give it to you if you ain't grateful so god gives you a blessed but because you don't see it as a blessed you ain't grateful for now. Guess what you steady asking god to do some for you. But you ain't thanking him for what he's done for you but you steady wanting him do more. How does that work. How does that work man that he should keep on giving you things when you ain't even working with the stuff he didn't gave you and i and i'm just i'm using ed one example that could go for men to vice versa and so on and so forth. I'm just using that as an example now why laid on that one so long yet. Take that up with god. That's all just read. I pointing fingers at nobody. Nothing because i've been guilty on both sides of the coin. Who am i. But i'm just share with you. What i had to do. I had to learn to stop allowing my pass to interfere with my future.

Let him thank you nephew subject. My side piece lives with us. Dear stephen shirley. I need some real honest advice because i'm in a serious situation i've been married for fifteen years to a very beautiful and wonderful woman lately. The sex is gone from two or three times a week to once a week about a year ago. Her sister went through a bad divorce in needed a fresh start in a new city so my wife and i invited her to move to our city and stay with us until she got her own house. Her sister is a great woman and she is a good head on her shoulders so it was not hard for her to find a good job shortly after she moved in with us the kobe pandemic hit and my sister-in-law started working from home. My wife and i are essential employees so we had to work daily. I used to get up before my wife. And when i got home i'd sit and talk to my sister-in-law until my wife got home. We realized we had a lot in common and i opened up to her about my lackluster sex life with her sister. She admitted that she hadn't had sex in her divorce. And she's about to explode my december of last year. We were satisfying each other sexually. But not going all the way. My sister-in-law is very sexy and seductive. And i want her so badly. But i can't do that to my wife. I need to get this temptation out of my house without my wife being suspicious. How should i handle this. Please please help. Y are you even thinking about this. I mean i know 'cause he's right there in front of you and in your face every day and left israel and your wife is not performing you say like she like she used to. But i am glad you wrote to us before before you actually slept with your sister in law couldn't agree with you more. You definitely have to get her out of the house. You've got to do that because you will have sex with her. If she doesn't leave. Now i have to believe what you said in this letter about all the way because you said you can't do that to your wife so you do have feelings. You love your wife. You said she was beautiful and wonderful and it doesn't take away from the fact that you've already cheated on her in your mind and almost everywhere else though. Look you gotta think about what's at stake here. I'm sure you've thought about it. But maybe you haven't thought clearly about it with you know your brain. I'll say that if you do your wife's sister you can really kiss life as you know it goodbye. You can do that especially if your wife finds out the trust will be broken. there would be unimaginable. Unimaginable hurt to the beautiful and wonderful woman. That's you're white. You're going to break a family if you got to think about these things and you could get killed if your wife catches you. Think about that too if you're sister-in-law my worth all of this is she. She's right there in the house. I know where. I'm assuming that it would all go down. So i don't know you gotta get her out of there and ask for sister-in-law. She definitely needs to find another place immediately. She's working you said. She had a good job so she can afford an apartment or something. She doesn't have to stay there any longer. Her sister has been really good to her. This is the way she pays her back by trying to sleep with you. It's foul and you know it So tell her in no uncertain terms but of course she's got to make it sound convincing like you said in the letter like it was all her idea so your wife won't suspect anything and this is just a big mess but the the main problem is to get her out of there asap steve. Well you know. I think before. I offer any help to this brother. We got to have a real talk me and dog in this letter. We got have a man to man. Because see when you right into.

Well i just is is pretty much the same thing from me. I'm on a real tangent right now. All with staying focusing on twenty twenty one erasing twenty twenty. it's done. It was a lot of challenges for a lot of people for a lot of people. That was some great moments in it and the one thing about it is what's even right now for all of us no matter who you are is that we all can have the same level of hope for twenty twenty one because one knows what the future holds. That's that's a guarantee. No one is promised tomorrow. No one really knows the exact day to tell be called home. I mean not really for the most part. Of course i'm not talking about people who are terminally ill and things like that. But but even i've seen those situations get turned around with faith but i'm talking about all of us starting today. Have the opportunity to view twenty twenty one with the level of expectation and realizing that the law of attraction is in full effect whether you realize it live by understand it no it or acknowledge it it does exist and that you can start right now. Living your life in expectation that twenty twenty one can be the best year of your life you. There's nothing that requires you to drag. Whatever happened to you from twenty twenty into twenty twenty. One doesn't does nothing. That does no law in place that forces you to drag emmy negatively along with you remember this show if something negative has happened to you. Keyword has happened. That means it's in your past tits. You have the ability if you choose to to move forward away from what has happened and you have the right to fixate your mind on something happening positive in your future. You have that right. You don't have to drag negatively alone which no one forces you to pack bag of negativity and take it with you have baggage because you won't let it go. I'll tell you what i do when negative things happen to me and they do happen to me and odd moves me past it. Meaning i got over it meaning. I survived the attack. Meaning that i got over the hurt. Meaning that i live to see another day once. God moves me pass. Whatever it is that has happened in my life. I'm done i'm done. I have learned to stop dragging my baggage throughout my life because life is already challenging enough and has its difficulty. What you don't need to do is keep dragging and other years you survive along into the new year. Why would i take twenty eighteen into twenty twenty one. When i got a divorce in two thousand eighteen and i thought i had met my soul mate. Okay he wouldn't but you don't keep bringing him his memory his legacy into future in twenty twenty one. You're hurting yourself. You're hurting yourself. Y'all stop dragging the baggage of pass it interferes with your future. You can't jump as high as you can in twenty twenty one with all that weight from twenty twenty twenty nineteen two thousand seventeen. You can't jump as high in twenty twenty one. You'll never get into orbit. God has for you if you keep dragon these old bags. Which if god has gotten over it if he has gotten you passed it if he has gotten you through it. That is a gift to you. You should leave it where it was. Stop bringing it with you. you don't have to. I'll give you another example. Let's say if you're a woman and you had a couple of bad relationships and you know how they say you know you bring the baggage from your old relationship until your new relationship. Okay so now you meet what could potentially be a man or person who can give you a great relationship but because you won't let go of the too bad ones you had you bring that into the relationship and you put it on the table for this new person to have to deal and grapple with all these issues that he or she didn't commit or didn't add to and now you're asking him to solve it here him know what caused it. Stop doing this to yourself. Remember sometimes to break up his blessing. You got to move forward. You lost your job in twenty twenty. Your company closed in two thousand twenty. It happened to a lot of people that companies not opening up. You're not going to get that job back. Oh woe is me. Yes but could that door have close simply because god wants you to up to hall and he got another door for you to go through you. Better start recognizing living your life in expectation in twenty twenty one. Hey y'all for all the doors that have closed in your life do yourself a favor and twenty twenty.

Steelers Injury Report, Week 10 vs. Bengals: Wednesday Update

"Pittsburgh steeler fans. What's going on. This is jeff hartmann cutter of behind the steel curtain dot com with you for a wednesday steelers injury report. Podcast as the pittsburgh steelers. Prepare for week ten. The cincinnati bengals coming to heinz field for remember a four twenty five pm kickoff. Not one o'clock the original schedule said is going to be a one pm kickoff. The nfl nfl doodle flex scheduling. They decided to bump it back to four twenty five so set your calendars or reminders. Whatever the case may be adjusted accordingly. So that you don't sit down at one not that you would do that anyways to watch them. Steelers football and say what the heck. Where's the game. It's not so four twenty five but it is a heinz field. The pittsburgh steelers return home after a three game road stint. Remember that was at tennessee at baltimore than at dallas. They've won them all folks there eight. No and that's a good thing but they're back to work just a reminder of the obviously the players that are on the covid reserve list are not going to be listed on this wednesday injury report. Because they're on the reserve list If by chance everything goes according to plan they can be taken off the list. But that won't be until as i said earlier. Podcast especially tuesday's press press conference recap mike. Tomlin's tuesday press conference That would obviously be later in the week. Probably is saturday so we'll find out about that. No news on that front in terms of positive results or anything like that. So here's what we know from the players that were supposed to practice today. Maybe didn't for whatever reason let's first go over those that were not injury related. Those players were given a day off to keep them. Fresh mike. Tomlin is better than anyone a week for by means. E you've gotta keep your players fresh you're gonna have to give them days off. You're going to have to be especially the veterans. You're going to have to be a little bit easy on him. So with that said marquees pouncey. Not injury related did not practice. Same with david. Decastro and alejandro villanueva. Thank you to veterans day. All the veterans out there just reminded me of alejandro villanueva. Then you have. Eric ebron has given a day off and steph onto so there you have to at ebron villanueva castro and pouncey all were given the day off not injure related in did not practice. So what does that mean that tomorrow. They'll be full participants and they'll be back ready to go but for a lot of these players like pouncey and two. They've been getting wednesdays off for a while now here. The injuries juju smith schuster with knee did not practice. This is another injury that it's popped up before on the injury report and a lot of fans are worried ding. There's only been one week. Where mr missed more than one day of practice. Typically he's out on wednesday and he's right back in on and friday and ready to go other players. that missed due to injury would be tyson. Who was his knee. Had limited limited the folks limited so he was back at practice and isaiah. I forgot his name. I an ankle did not participate. So are they above ankle must be bothering him a little bit more than we might have led on originally but getting all all the back even if it's only on a limited basis is good news and there's more good news with this injury report. Derek watt who we found out on tuesday. The reason he didn't play last week was he re aggravated a hamstring injury. He wasn't even on the injury report leading up to the game yet. Muster tweaked it. I don't know if it wasn't on saturday. And a walk through or if it was sunday before the game but he was inactive. They didn't have them available but he was a full participant on wednesday to good sign for him but again set at a million times hamstrings can creep up on you and next thing. You know you're dealing with it for a whole another week or two the best news of all though. Is mike helton with his shoulder. He's missed the last three games. He was been limited slash full participants. The last two weeks he was a full participant in practice. It looks as if he might be ready to go. Finally he might be ready to go. That is tremendous news for the pittsburgh. Steelers desperately missed him and they desperately miss tyson. All the while. Not saying all will be back this week. Most people said his knee injury would have mount two to three weeks. If he comes back it would be. It would be early if he's healthy enough to play. That's great if not you hope that someone like isaiah. Bugs is healthy enough. Did get in there and play but as we always say on wednesday. Take this in report with a grain of salt. Do not over think this injury report do not if you're a fantasy football owner don't sit there and say oh my gosh juju might not play. I have starting on my roster this week. Don't worry that okay. don't worry about it. Don't worry about until player. Misses a thursday or friday practice but the worst in my opinion or when injuries creep up during the week. You saw this with Definitely with ulysses gilbert the third where he seemed healthy and then all of a sudden he shows up with a back injury on thursday now. he's on injured reserve. Sometimes as midweek. Injuries can be the worst but there he added. That's the wednesday injury report november eleventh for the pittsburgh steelers now at the time that this is recorded the cincinnati bengals had not released their official injury. Report yet As i don't really care too much about getting this out before that because like i said it's a wednesday report. The bengals are coming off their bye. But here is some news about the cincinnati. Bengals one from covid Related response or for met that angle and then another from the fact that we did get some reports to who practiced limited From other sources. I'll talk about that. So i An updated list of bengals had to put some players on the covid. Nineteen less offensive lineman for johnson defensive. Tackle margus hunt cornerback. Trae wayne's he's already on reserved and that was all based on the fact that winston rose A practice squad quarterback had tested positive. So they're doing the same thing. The pittsburgh's doing positive tests means they go through the contact. Tracing they figure out who was close contact than those players have to quarantine to remove until they find out. Okay negative test negative test. Wait five days now. You're able to come back so that's news for them. They're dealing with their own. Kobe situation is. It is big as the steelers in regards to broths burger. In vince williams. No but at the same time it is something to think about do. Thanks to profootballtalk dot com. They had this report out. That joe mix and who's been dealing with a foot injury gain. He's missed two games and this was before the bye week so he's an extended time off. They were hoping to have him back this week. But mix was able to practice but it was on a limited basis. He was on a limited basis basis. Giovanni bernard is filled in. And he's done a good job. Nixon is a different type of back. He's a three down back. He's very very versatile. Out of the backfield good blitz. Pick up good running the football the steelers. They don't have to do with joe mixing it's going to be a big benefit to them. We'll put it that way now. Other players that were limited in some way shape or form left tackle. John williams who had a stinger bright tackle bobby hard with a knee. They were all limited however trae hopkins A center with a concussion and left guard. Michael jordan illness were back to full work. So that's not official that's from profootballtalk dot com. Take it for what it's worth but ultimately when you look at this matchup and i'll give you an example the since jungle website. That's espn nation. Cincinnati bengals version of behind steel curtain. Because as we nation has thirty two nfl sites one for every team the cincy jungle editor sent me an email and said would you like to answer some questions. And i said sure. Yeah absolutely not. I sent him my questions. Helpful those out and send them back when we're going through these. There's so many variables in this game. Already you're ben. Roethlisberger had the knee injuries. We know that we reported that. But also being on the reserve covid lists for instance you is he gonna be We hope that he doesn't test positive if he does test. Positive is definitely out this week. If he's out out his mason rudolph play. What does that do this game. And then you think leaving by the cincinnati side even joe burrow sumit's first time against the steelers defense. But you have mixing who still trying to battle back from a foot. Injury is running back. You don't want to rush him back because you do that. Could that could end the season Pretty much so. There's a lot of variables of rothberg can play in all these players. Were on the covid reserve list just because they were high risk from being around vance mcdonald if they're able to come back and there's no other positive cases in this is just a blip on the radar in the steelers should be just fine but at the same time if he doesn't play boy. Does that throw a glitch in the matrix in regards to this upcoming game at heinz field. You just don't know what's going to happen. And that's that's the nfl and twenty twenty folks. I mean literally. That's exactly what it is. You just don't know you have these cases in this happened in matthew stafford last week baker mayfield was put on the reserve list as well. They'll baker mayfield didn't have a gain of play for but he would have missed that game. I believe if he actually would have had a game but they were on their bye week. He's off that list now. Matthew stafford was able to play last week. The hope is ben. roethlisberger will be able to play as well. he's not gonna have many physical repetitions but the hope is that he will be able to play. He's still going to be under testing to make sure you check out behind the steel curtain dot com as. We're gonna have all the breaking news for you as it happens as it pertains to the steelers.

"I hope everybody voted today certainly got to exercise your right to vote. Absolutely. By the way, one of everyone who's come out not just yesterday at the commerce casino. But at all events, kind of we've been at when we were at the tilted kilt and chino when we were outside here in the plaza before games, we got a lot of people come up and shout us out and loving what we're doing around here. We appreciate that. Thank you so much for all you guys coming out. You know, what I've noticed about all that is that I'm not saying that, you know. I appreciate anyone who listens regardless of age or gender, or what a lot of young people have shouted us out and showed up at our events, which is always cool because the reason I say that because Trudell I've worked at a couple of different places before and generally young people don't listen to AM sports radio or AM radio in general. So it's always fascinating to there on the podcast, and whatever right or they're they're listening to radio it's on the FM. Now, you know, they're not really listening to the AM side, very often. So I always think that's kind of cool. It's it it kind of bodes. Well, I think for the station when you have younger people switching over to AM and not look about antiquated medium over here. But I'm glad I could deliver that demographic. Thank you. Yes. Yes. They did say was all you. There's no question. So with that said real quick before we get back to the Lakers. And thanks Dante. Lynn head coach of the chargers. He was fun. He was cool. And I wish them all the success in the world. And sorry, Shawn is felt like I was cheating on you. I appreciate you buttering me up your sorry about that. So. The dodgers. So it looks like Dave Roberts. Tim Brown of Yahoo sports. Not the football player the baseball writer. He is reporting that the dodgers are working on a deal with Dave Roberts. And it looks like it could be in the three years. Three your neighborhood right about twelve million years to find a year. Do you believe that's too much money said again, Tom near read a twelve? I believe is what it was. I will look it up real quick hold on. Yeah. So twelve four the I mean. That's fine. I think that that is fine going going, right? Yeah. I think so here it is Dodger's Dave Roberts getting closer on a deal as many of reported something in the neighborhood of AJ Hinch contract with the Astros believed to be about twelve million over four years, excuse me. So three year. Oh, that's a bargain. Yeah. I think that's fine. Yeah. Yeah. I think but people are really mad and by the way far on Zaidi of you saw this today two things with him one. He basically said that he even believes in their process even more now after the they lost to the Red Sox because the Red Sox are a process team. They they basically are mirror images of each other and their players played better in that series. I mean, they it seemed like they they didn't use quite as many players as the dodgers. As much but look at the guy who won MVP. I mean that guy's a platoon play with that was kind of his point, right? Yeah. I was I was fine. The summarize the whole dodger thing in ten seconds thought. Roberson a good job seems like you really has the clubhouse behind him and they lost thirteen. And that's and they'll be back next year. That's my very light in the mix again for the in the World Series next year potentially Marin catastrophic injuries. Yeah. The I got the Kershaw thing. I mean, I don't love, you know, especially that thirty European thirty plus more again, I thought that was like a gift to be kind of was because you don't think of this so Mason, I had this discussion during purgatory. And when it happened that day whatever was last week. And I said, look I thought it was a gift because this front office does not do that stuff. They don't pay for past performance. He believes that it was an ownership thing. Like, they're like, let's. Just take care of him. Maybe I mean, I will knowledge that they're like ver- Lander for example had a year where his velocity on his fastball went down a bit. And then he got some of that velocity back. So I'm not going to count on that as Kershaw is going to have his back thing that acts up every year, and he's gonna miss some games. I don't I also I'm not I'm not mad about it. I just didn't. I didn't love it. But I'm not mad about it. You brought that up on the show. Actually. I mean, we had Tim coaching talk about it. But before Tim Kirk turn Kim outstanding Gundy brought up just ver- Landers velocity situation. And right. He was kind of back in the mix. The difference is shoulder versus back. Right. And yes, I'm not a doctor you've been dealing with. Dr recently about your kids have a spinal fusion surgery my. Well, there's no extra not easy. Right. It's the worst area to have anything. So I do think there's that part of the equation the other part of the equation when it comes to eighty. I know there were two things we were talking about the giants have formerly made an offer to him. And the question I have for you is do the dodgers try to match and just pay him big bucks. And we know they're paying Friedman big bucks. But do you pays Aidi the general manager, basically his right man, right hand, man? Big bucks to keep him away from your biggest rival. Yeah. Yes. That's exactly what you do. I mean, if it's a team like, I don't know Philly or something Atlanta, somebody that you only anyone in the American League me American League that you're probably never gonna see like Minnesota, right? But man, I I would not want that happening. No now in unless Friedman. It all depends on what Freeman thanks. So if he thinks Zaidi is so crucial to him. That he'll sell it to ownership. And basically, we'll find out how good ideas, we'll find out from basically if Freeman and less, George this the other thing if it's buddy though, and that's the opportunity where you can triple his salary. Yeah. And have his shot. Right. I could also see you being like, look, man. I hate to. I hate that. It's the giants let go, but I'm yeah. But go like if I were working with you, and you got a job out from somebody else. It'd be like, look, you gotta take it. Right. Yeah. So I yeah. Yeah. I'm mad at people if they gotta leave, and they gotta make more money right happens in this business, all the time in LA, you need it. You're looking at Pearson. What Dr competitor offer of the show on the is FOX trying to get. Here's Joe it's happened on the station. Has it not just like happened in this? I've thought, you know, twice with with two guys one was still in the company, but the other one is is another. It's all put that on me mad at any of them. Do what you gotta do. You know? Yeah. I like, you would think that you would think that if ownership values him though, than part of the problem is you definitely can't pay him as much as what the giants are gonna offer. Right. If they make the offer. So that's the position where then what do you do? Because if they're going to give you what the number. Let's say five million in. You're you're going give them two million. Yeah. Then you almost. No. You gotta let choice. Yeah. But if you're willing to match it's a different. But, but that's my thing. Those you can't match and then have him be making like, basically, what Freeman makes you wanna double. Then the money becomes too much. And you just get the next guy. So so that's that's the the issue as I'm as I'm saying that if they want him, I think he's gone. Don't you? Yeah. Yeah. I think as long as it's reasonable you. You you pay them. And if it's you know, there's no chance you can compete then you move on. That's yeah. And I don't know. I don't know if it's going to dictate the rise or fall of the dodgers, rather if it happens right because theoretically laws Andrew Friedman's here. Good Friedman's been solid, and I'm sure he has X number of lieutenants that he could that he could feels like could do that jor. Sure. Absolutely. And you know, and like you said you don't wanna keep somebody down. Right, right. I think that's part of their a couple of guys, you know, free agencies right around the corner here in baseball. It's literally month away. I actually believe that there's a couple of guys the dodgers should absolutely be an on one guy. Jed Larry second baseman for the Oakland. A's? I think it can you can get him at a reasonable contract and reasonable in baseball. I'm talking about like three four twelve to fifteen in that range. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Per year. You know, someone like that they need a catcher, I know that Grondahl may be back in the mix. But I would take a hard look at a guy like Wilson Rambo's you talking about a two time all star that's available out there because this notion that they're going to trade for JT rea- multo the Marlins, I don't see that happening considering the way the dodgers to hold onto their prospects. Like that that that's not. I don't see that unfolding that way. The other part is I want them to go after Zach Britton now that goes against everything that Friedman Zaidi, and these guys believe which is pay a premium for non closing pitchers, even though they were kind of in on him during the trade deadline. I think they need that guy because I don't know about you. But are you a hundred percent confident that kenley Jansen is good to go moving forward because we got asked that question yesterday. But one of the fans that came to commerce casino, and yeah, I thought okay about it. But if you have Britain in there who can be your setup guy who's been a guy who saved I think fifty games one year. I would feel a lot better. About that. Look, I'm saying look now the way that you do it's. You stole. I mean look on radio but looking at I've just noticed a trope for. I mean, doesn't the what I mean the way that Janssen looked last year was not the same that he looked the year before. And usually you're not gonna go back to your previous high performance after another year of getting older and having thrown all of those cutters. So no, I'm not as bullish as excited about Jansen. And look in stead he and Kershaw did not win you the World Series in either of their chances to do. So. Right. So I would like another potential closer Brian. It's gonna stop by five thirty. We'll talk Lakers with him. Speaking of the Lakers. They added a new big man, we'll tell you why the Tyson Chandler situation can benefit the Lakers. But there's also one aspect that you should still be worried about we'll tell you what that isn't just a sec Mike Trudeau hanging out with us. It's sit down on ESPN Ella. Hayes small business owners, you know, that clear and straightforward communication is crucial. So in eighteen thousand one thing and actually means another it gets really frustrating, for example, says the fast internet, but what they really mean is basic internet basics negative were these days with slow starting speech. The can't keep up with your business Spectrum Business internet starting speed is one hundred megabits per second much faster than AT and T and AT and T says they've affordable small business rates. They mean that they'll add taxes and charge. You more for services you need. But when Spectrum Business as they have blazing fast internet for just forty four nine ninety nine a month and voice for just twenty nine nine a month. They mean, no hidden fees. No taxes, no contracts, ever if you're stuck in eighteen contract Spectrum Business will buy you out. Search for Spectrum Business to see what they can do for your small business. Restrictions apply. Call for details before we get to the jailer stuff and hanging out today here on the show Brian horse gonna stop by in twelve minutes. I know we talked to Ryan mcdonagh yesterday. The former sons GM, and we asked him about fit right fit with LeBron these young guys which one fits which don't fit, and he actually felt that Brandon Ingram was the trickiest fit. I think the trickiest fit maybe Ingram. I might be in the minority on that. But they play a similar position. You know, I think with Lonzo at the one heart at the two Kouzmin at the four those guys fit around LeBron pretty well. I know they're searching for a long-term answer at the center. Javale mcgee's played very well as you guys know, and they're in the process, I believe of adding Tyson Chandler now that he's been bought out by my former club and Phoenix. So I think those guys fit well, and and that's not perfect Brandon Ingram. He's a very talented player. But I think the other three guys fit round LeBron pretty well. And look yesterday you and I talked about this, and we were kind of on on opposite ends on this. I felt like that these young guys would all be competing to see who fits against with LeBron and originally I felt like there was going to be a competition between Lonzo and Ingram and one guy was probably not going to stick around between those guys mostly because of where they were drafted, etc. Etc. They're just you know, the other two guys Kouzmin heart worst case scenario. They were going to be role player type guys, right? I happen to think that at least as far as the way this team is currently constituted. When you look at fit when you look at that kind of forward rotation. I feel like there's a legit competition between Ingram and Kusa to be LeBron's wingman out there as far as the other forward is concerned. And maybe I'm wrong about that. But it does feel like those two guys are going to have to be going head to head against each other even practice and for minutes and games and things of that. So my main course correction, and that would be that Ingram slots between the two and the three more. So and coups Maslova twin the four in the three. So that's so you can play and that's one of the benefits of Ingram. You can even play him at point guard. Now, you don't wanna start on their you want in there for the whole game. But you can have him in that type of spot. They did it for all of last February when he had his best action. You're not gonna have him at the four too often. Although I. I think in as years go on he's got the length as he adds a little bit more bulk. He's never going to be a big is kind of like Durant. Right. Durant has gotten stronger. He's going gonna he's never gonna rent basically plays. The for a lot of times. Now for for the warriors. I do think that Ingram's got enough positional versatility. Where there's no reason why you can't have him in me on the floor at the same time. The question Mark as to who fits with brand better that is a real one. And that's something I'm watching closely, man. I mean, I thought that Ingram in the preseason. Actually, look great with the Brown in a couple of games in these last couple of games have just been a difference after Ingram came back from the suspension. And now that he's being starting at the two which he never did last year that was always either Casey p or Josh heart. And now kouzmine starting on the other side of LeBron. I just think that Ingram's searching he's trying to figure out exactly where he needs to be when which of his skill should he utilize more all that stuff. And isn't it true shift is back to you? The LeBron expert isn't the Braun just figuring all that stuff out too. Not just for himself. But I yeah. And so that to me is what we need that's going to decide how things work out. Right. Lebron is going to to more or less figure out. How to best how Ingram and coups my best fit around him. Yes. I do think that but I think that at least early returns right in the preseason. It was strange. It felt like Ingram fit way better with the brand. In those preseason games. Granted very limited amount of minutes. Whatever. I know granted I'm saying but here the regular season. There's no question. Cow Kuzin has been better with LeBron than than Brandon Ingram, right? Yeah. If if I had to pick. Yes, I don't I mean, the production has been much better from Kusa alongside role. So the role is just a little bit different though. Because Kuzina is just he's maybe the speaks to your point. Right. Like his he can be a catch and shoot player. Even though he's shooting the ball. Well, yet, he's below. He's been kind of in the low thirties most of your from three. He's also good at finishing at the rim. Ingram again is still is basically trying to figure out how to play this guard spot between Lonzo and the Bron and a lot of times. Lebron is the basketball and Ingram is basically just been looking for post ops because all of the guys that are guarding him or short. And that is something that he can do. Well, but it it takes them out of rhythm. I think from just playing passing moving and cutting the coups misdoing Ingram is more. Just search kind of searching out the mismatch, which I don't know if he needs to do as much as he's been doing right to Ryan's point mcdonagh's point yesterday. There is some duplication in their games between Ingram and LeBron. To which doesn't help the scenario either. Yeah. I suppose, but again, I would much rather have guys can do the can both dribble and shoot. Yeah. I read. And so there's to me there's no issue with having guys that have multiple skills that it you just have to let them figure out who's going to win. Just like I'm not comparing Ingram to join way. It's a good problem to so when when the I got to Miami. But it is a problem. Sure. Yeah. Of course. And that's what the regular seasons for. Right. They, and that's what the that's what they have to figure out moving forward in somebody at some point has to take a back seat in the place and typically is not going to be the Brown. And so no, it's not gonna run. Well, but right, but okay. So the first year the brunt did take a back seat and certain ways away, and it didn't work out there. Well, I know, but but nonetheless like in so I think he that almost that reiterate sort of solidified what LeBron is going to do an Ingram is just figuring that out now. So I think once he figures it out and give me another give me five games ten games. Give me twenty games. I think that we will see a much different look because they will. You know, what to do with each other, by the way, if you miss Tyson Chandler on earlier during purgatory with me, Mason and Ireland? We're going to play that for you at six thirty six thirty if you miss Tyson Chandler, he was on with me Mason in Ireland. And we'll have that for you at six thirty time in Pasadena, Tom what's up? Tom. Gone, right. Let's grab Patrick. Patrick ahead. Patrick. Go ahead. Hear me. Yes. Sir. Okay. I can hear you guys every because you're. I don't know the one one quick thing, you know, not giving wall in the past because he would hope coach can figure out what new talent what to do to make the defense work rotation. You wanna see better? Yes. But when comes to wouldn't hear about magic the reason people get upset. No, not white black one loves magic hero here. You love all played areas are coach, but what you're seeing is that you can find dozens of articles reading about last year out at one point. We were three better defensive teams in the NBA at one point last year. We had injuries dropped top home. I think we've finished like twelve thirteen defensive efficiency. Our best defender argue our best player our second best player. And now you give a whole bunch of guys who were all sitting there like well we abroad for seventeen years. I would never put these guys around him after what we seem. But we're going to do it. Anyway, that they're tough ready and you're going to get mad at your coaching. Go watch making. This work, and we are working we're in a position we're going to get better. But to come out so early. That's what upset me. Phil Jackson, the greatest coach of all time. He's a terrible manager in New York. There's been amazing players that are terrible coaches because he's our golden sun. Doesn't mean magic. It's the best GM president. That is absolutely fair. You're absolutely right. Patrick. There's no question that. Yeah. Not great at everything. Right. And that that's kind of your point. Now, it's why I think he needs to kind of look in the mirror a little bit. At the way. This team was constructed before he gets on, Luke. Now Bronwyn worse is gonna join us next. You know, he's had some strong comments about all of this stuff on the jump today. We'll talk to Brian next here on this show here on ESPN LA. But before that, I gotta tell you man, listen when it comes to safety. There's nothing more important than your vehicle's brakes trust, the professional parts people at a Reilly auto parts to help you.

So get out to my friends at around the auto parts around the auto parts, better parts, better prices every day so show here on ESPN LA. Thanks again to all of you come out to the functions we've had recently out of commerce casino yesterday out at the tilted kilt and chino though, I'm a little disappointed. Lavar didn't come out and hang out with us, especially since you know, lamelo is going back to high school, even though it's in Ohio. We got talk about that. We do have to talk about that at some point not for very long, but just a little bit at least Vars putting the kid back in school. And then of course out in the plaza here in front of the arena on game days has been a blast. Thank you guys for supporting the show. We appreciate it might Trudeau hanging out with us today. If you miss Tyson Chandler, he was on with me Mason Ireland during purgatory we'll have that for you in an hour at six thirty. And if you missed Anthony Lynn the head coach of the chargers will have that for in the final segment at six forty five. Bronwyn worst ESPN NBA insider now joins us here. Brian, obviously, we spent a lot of time here dissecting the Lakers and all the stuff about Luke and magic and whatnot. What do you make of these conversations that have been leaked about how magic has addressed Luke? And maybe some of the shortcomings on this team. How fair is this to Luke Walton? Well, difficult situation. Like, this is I don't know how often magic and Luke have these meeting for all I know it happens three or four times a year organizations work like that somewhere stations. The owner calls a d- general manager and yelled at him, you know, eight times a month. So, you know, really only Luke knows if it was truly different than any other time in the last year when there was when there was frustration. The difference is is that with this team. There is really intense scrutiny, and that as you know, George that happens when you have a LeBron team, and you have a high expectation team. So, you know, I think that. It's natural. And this is what you want you want to be a relevant teen, you, you know, you wanna be in the spotlight. This means that there's higher stakes. If there was lower stakes would matter, but it's very hard other than the fact that everybody knowledged was heated. It's very hard to know. But I will say this. I kind of think Luke Walton one because one of Luke's points was to get some help at the center position and within hours of the meeting. He got him some help at the center position. So whatever magic said to Luke, I don't know what he promised him. But, you know, walked away from the meeting with some currency with a player hit Brian. What have you made in? You can go anywhere you want with this of LeBron's first ten games. Nondescript. By LeBron standards. He's being a wallflower right now. All this stuff is happened with the Lakers in the first ten games other than, you know, the missed free throws or whatever none of it's really involved him very unusual for the drama on his team not involved in him. He is you know, he played well at times there have been times when he's turned into a wallflower. He is not impacted the end of games as much as he really should. I think part of that is the structure of the team. The team is not structured for him really to make impact. Layton games at times. He really hasn't put his stamp on it yet. And you know and watching him and watching him operate here. He seems to be sort of, you know, purposely staying back. You know, he he's he's elected to really heavily come out and support Luke, you know, after the game in Portland. I mean, I have no idea the difference in the Porton game plan versus the difference in the game plan. They had another night. I mean, you know, their best one of the. Season came over Denver did the coaching staff. Give them the game plan to win that night. I mean, the difference was LeBron decided to say it in Portland because he's elected to back the head coach at every turn right now. So this is not the best. Lebron you're going to see this to do. There's more to him. And you know, frankly, he hasn't played well on defense. And I know that that's frustrating. Some Laker fans. But LeBron I'm gonna be honest with you guys the last three four years really hasn't shown interest in defense before about March. And sometimes even later by don't expect that really to change. Yeah. I mean, you can go back to twenty fourteen for sure and see that. I don't want to relitigate some of this stuff. But at the time when the Lakers added the four veteran guys, it was said that LeBron signed off on all these guys. You just kind of brought up the point that this team isn't necessarily what he's accustomed to. Do. We know you may know better than all of us. Right. So do we know that that's the case that he'd completely was cool with these signings? Like, they came them and said we want to sign Rondo and lands at cetera et cetera et center. Like, how did that all go down? George. This is this is a very difficult situation because there are areas of gray hair, even back like when the Cavs made moves there were players that you would talk to the Cavs acquired where they said that the first person that they heard from in a transaction was LeBron and there were other times where LeBron wasn't involved at all. And it was assigned to him. I will tell you one thing LeBron will never openly come out race his hand and say I brought this guy in because he is never going to put himself in a position where he is now responsible for that player. But he spent like five minutes extolling the values of Rajon Rondo during the final and then Rondo about fifteen minutes. Lebron signs Rondos on his heel. So. Yes. I I'm sure that magic LeBron talked about which players that they wanted. Did they come to LeBron when say, we'll you ratify this signing, you know, give it your stamped here. It's a it's an area of Ray and your LeBron is never going to do that. He he will all one of the phrase, he uses I, you know, I don't sign the checks around here. I'm just an employee. He will never be that way. You know? He definitely this definitely is more like the team that he preferred more playmaker. So there was less stress on him that app, we followed what he wanted. But I look at this team, and I see team it's not set up to create space for him on the floor for him to operate, which is the way teams of play with him for ten years. So I'm not so sure who gets it. So in the in the absence of having a clear information, I will sign it to Magic Johnson who was the president of the team and all the guy signs on the contracts. And so that's who I will find. How do you feel LeBron Rondo mesh as personalities both obviously very strong minded guys? Right. Like, they certainly will not shudder at questioning a coach in any scenario. Like, how did those two guys mesh in your opinion? Again, George it saves of gray. I think Rondo was probably pretty pissed off that when when he and Chris Paul got into it that LeBron's arm ended up around Chris Paul and not Rhonda regardless of their past situation. I don't think that Rondo thought that was cool at all because that's not how Rondo roles, but there are other situations where I think LeBron Rondo completely aligned, and I think LeBron likes having Rondo to share the leadership. Void I think LeBron legs having Rondo to to to help communicate with the young players and can communicate with the coaches. I think he loves that. He can be a playmaker. And he can be another vote on defense. One of the most. Things you have to do on defense in the NBA today's game whether so much switching everywhere is communication Rondos. One of the best communicators on the court. So I think there are times when they're great. And there are other times when they're going to great on each other. Because it's the nature of it. What I think the problem is is that, you know, he is you know, it's difficult to him to create space. So when a when it comes to winning time with so many Laker games have where it's worth a fifty fifty game with three minutes left at times, it's going to be hard to play together. Because it it makes it easier on the other teams and not have to worry about spacing the floor with Rondo brunt. Georgia spend a lot of time discussing debating these Lakers young players sort of how you know how they're going to mess with the Bron. The brunt hasn't been in a situation where he's had that many guys that have the chance to get better. How do you see it all playing out with the young guys with potential trades versus fit and how was that situation? Meshing considering we haven't really seen the bra. In a in a place like that in recent years, so Mike this situation because a big chunk of this roster is going to be gone, right? So like part of it is like when you're watching for chemistry. You're like, yeah. But these guys are all just holding one year contracts, and when it comes to young guys LeBron the thing about LeBron is he will be very invested in a young guy. But when they're comes a moment where he's done with him. He's done with them. You know, the quintessential guy like I can tell you what this was Dion waiters. Okay. Dion waiters was you know, in his rookie contract with the with the Cavs had been a top five tick. I think he played two seasons when the brand came at twenty fourteen he's got him. You know, they're in Brazil on a road trip. Actual trip and they're running on the beach every day at eight AM. He staying after to she would LeBron LeBron trying to turn them into like, Dwayne Wade junior and all this stuff. They're giving good close about each other by November twentieth. Lebron's was done with him never wanted to see him again. And he was traded by you know, I think January first so, you know, that's kind of the way it works. He'll, you know, you know, LeBron will tempt to mentor guys Andy with guys. But if if it doesn't work in he doesn't mesh with them he is not afraid to pull the Ripcord. And so, you know, getting back to what your question was. How is he messing with these guys? Okay. You know, I think, you know, Lonzo, you know, with along along those shooting better, you know, has been great. I think he's definitely invested in Lonzo. He has said doubt. But guys check back in two months. I can totally change. That's just the reality of LeBron James. Yeah. I mean Brian winters with year here. Don't I we're talking about that it feels like there's a bit of. A competition about who's gonna fit around LeBron. Right. And the guys that I was we were just talking about the last two days are Ingram and Kouzmin. And at least the early returns through ten games. It feels like Koussa has fit in much better alongside LeBron where Ingram hasn't even though Ingram looked very good with LeBron in the preseason in limited minutes. So I'm with you. I look at those two guys and wouldn't Kusnick kind of look like the prototypical guy, you would have next to LeBron whereas Ingram cooed potentially. I know that you're not reporting. This just we're we're kind of speculating how he could be one of these guys out. Right. I is that possible. Well, if Anthony Davis became available tomorrow, LeBron wouldn't would you know pack bags for him. You know seeing? Right. Just be honest about that. I think the difficulty with coups Ma is when you play Kouzmin LeBron together. One of them's got to defend the power forward. And sometimes one of them's got to depend center. And at least that's the way it's been maybe won't be the same way with Chandler in the mix, but it puts on a really rough division at times. And you know, when you're asking who's my to do so so much defensively it affects his offense of game. And so that's one of the things that when his I watched and put this team together in July when it was all done. I'm looking at it. And I'm just going. I don't know how they get their five players on the court together when it matters. And you know, so somebody is going to suffer. Yeah. Situation. It means who's gonna give here in Ingram's gonna give there. And you know, I guess what Brown's gonna give over here and and ball's gonna give over here like it's not a well assembled roster. It is. In a flawed roster. Now, listen, I've seen Ross you haven't while together, find rhythm and learned to play it. And that's what we're all watching. That's where we're spending his time watching. But I mean, we have to be honest. It's a flawed roster roster that does that doesn't fit together. And then you know, that's gonna have to be addressed in power won't be addressed in full until next year. But I mean, it, you know, it's hard for me to see, you know, all these guys sitting together for four years. I don't know that's going to be the case. Right. Wasn't that wasn't the part of the though that the reason that it's the roster is incomplete is because they everything was to keep that second slot open for next year, and therefore the the deals and such. So so the team that were I heard you say this all off-season seem that we're seeing now is not necessarily going to resemble what the actual plan is for the whole thing together. In all fairness, like let's just have fun to watch the Lakers because I just don't like we're gonna spend a lot of time watching evaluating, you know? This could totally be on its head in three months or twelve months. And you know, that's that's the thing. And that's I don't I I'm reading LeBron just sort of just going through the experience. I, you know, I don't I don't think he looks around and see. Okay. These are the guys I'm going to compete for championship. With doesn't mean doesn't wanna win every game. Doesn't mean he's not fully invested. But you have to do what I see I see LeBron sort of floating on the top right now just going along with it. And I gotta believe that's part of the reason why I mean, I gotta believe the part of the reason why he scheduled the film Space Jam next summer was because I mean, if it does get film, but I think they're gonna film next summer was because he knew was going to have the whole summer for the first time in eight or ten years. Yeah. Brian. Thank you so much of the time. Always appreciate it take Brian ESPN NBA inside a lot of things don't pack there. So we'll discuss some of that. We'll take your calls. We got one open phone line. We've got people been holding on patiently throughout the show. Your thoughts. What Brian had to say there? It is a flawed roster. And the reality is that the expectations need to be lowered. And part of that is unmatched Johnson to who has changed the expectations. Eight seven seven seventy SPN eight seven seven seven three seven seven six if you miss Tyson Chandler earlier with me Mason in Ireland. You'll hear at six thirty. We'll have that interview interview for you. Then we'll take some of your calls and react to Brian next. Hey, thanks to Brian winters for joining us there. We're gonna get your calls, unisex. I promise at eight seven seven seven ten ESPN. I know I've been saying that for like an hour. But I promise this time, I really will get to them. So some interesting stuff so win said when you we asked him about or you ask them about LeBron's play. He said nondescript that, he even said playing like a wallflower at times not putting his imprint on the games like he would was used to all fair and valid criticisms. But I think that now more than ever because LeBron is thirty three going on thirty four because he's playing on a new roster. I think that there's a number of things going on there. It's just my opinion. There's frustration. There's the newness of it. There's the age factor. And I think that there's this kind of like feeling of we're not gonna win this thing. Anyway. So I'm not gonna go balls to the wall. Can I even say that? Let's just just in case you say that. All right, whatever go all out bees to the wall coconuts to the wall. In a season. I don't know if I'm if I'm gonna reap the benefits now in general as Brian pointed out, he actually went further than I did when I said the last couple of days, you know, LeBron don't even start to think about leaned even still I January well Bryant when his forces say March, so and maybe that's been the case more. So the qualifier for that in. I think mostly fans know this. But you said the same thing about Kobe later in his career once you're you've had a certain spot on the dominator. And I don't know exactly how many minutes it is. But he is a lot. Lebron is top ten all any player that's ever played in the NBA. They're only eight guys that have played more than the brunt. It's either eight or nine minutes total total minutes including playoffs. So of course, you can't you can't play the same level of defense in November and expect to still have that left in your legs later on. So that's we knew that going in. We should have expected it, and that's understandable. I'm not going to rip guy for that. Just like, I wouldn't do it for any other of these. Teran's that have been around for a long time and had a lot of miles. It's just about using them selectively and the president pretty good about doing that. He will turn it up defensively for in crunch time. Right. He will he will orchestrate and find things to figure out. But I I like you. I thought that Bryan made some interesting points about how LeBron is laying back and just essentially trying to learn just taking in all this information. What do I really think of Ingram of Cousteau of Lonzo of Rondo of Luke of rump link of he's he's trying to figure all of this stuff out? And I think that certainly the fact that all these guys are all doing the same thing with run that's going to show up in games. It just it just has. And that's why certain nights like in Portland. They looked really good. They were connected for the most part defensively and they wanna talk game. And then the next day, especially when in the case of a back to back when there's already a bit of a mental thing going in where Toronto's waiting here, the rested that kind of thing is resulted in some. Some close losses. So none of this is a prize, George, but it's also it just shows all of these concerns that are there for a team that essentially thrown together and in made to go out and win right away. When obviously needs time, and that's what they keep saying. Lebron said it week after week after week after week guys we need not just a week. Not just two weeks. We need a while to figure this out. Lebron's played fifty four thousand six hundred sixty minutes in his career. Including the playoffs now in regular season. He's twentieth. All time second most active to Dirk. I don't have anything. I can't find the including the playoff numbers. Just yet. But yes, he's played a bleep ton of minutes. Let's go to the phones here. Josh, Josh, go ahead, buddy. The only criticism I have is in Portland the other night, they blow a twenty point lead. And because they blew that twenty point lead broad couldn't get the rest leading up to the back to back Sunday night game. And I think that in retrospect they actually with Leonard out. Lebron could've watched the young kids play Sunday night. I know the fans at Staples. Are you saying play him at all? Yeah. Yeah. To rest on a back to back, you know after a big win, Portland. Rest watch the young kids plac- were maybe he fits in a little bit better. But all this talk about Luke Walton being out is bothering me because I think he's a great coach. And I think at the end of the day will bronze going to get what he wants. And if he wants the bra if he wants Luke Walton out he's going to be gone, and it's a shame 'cause loops. Great coach and. It doesn't make sense that there's a reason you Josh, Josh, there's a reason we're Vegas had Luke as the coach would get fired. I ended up being Theron Lou I believe a second on the list. But there is a feeling, but I do think that there's something to be said about LeBron not wanting that to happen because he doesn't want the blood on his hands. Look. So the only thing that I think the caller made some really good points there. But that Portland game then blow the lead. Okay. They won the game. So teams always make the Lakers. Did you see what happened game of runs? Did you see what happened to the raptors? Yeah. The Lakers got that game too. So that there is very I watch a lotta games. There's very rarely a team that is up twenty the doesn't at some point the fight off run in. So LeBron did he play four more minutes. Maybe then he then he needed to. I don't think that was the difference in this one the the sheer nature that it was back. Maybe now did help I think in Phoenix when he didn't have to play the fourth. Quarter role in you only play twenty eight minutes in that one of the came back and they beat Denver on that back back. Still the only loss for the nuggets. I'm not his minutes actually, down from from the past ten years, the Brunswick thirty five I would've taken that. Because last replayed more like thirty eight right Tyson Chandler, by the way, we haven't talked about him. We'll get into him on the other side. We'll take more of your calls at eight seven seven seven ten ESPN and all of this including Brian had to say with us earlier. Stephen a Smith also had some comments more comments about stuff. That's. Yes. Leaked out even further. Right. More more leaks on the conversation magic and Lou cats. Stephen as got some stuff on that. We'll hear from that about that on the other side. And if you miss the Tyson Chandler interview with me Mason in Ireland Tyson joins us during purgatory at three thirty. We'll have that interview for you at six thirty.

The podcast edition tonight. Dead of winter in the decades since nine hikers died mysteriously in russia everything from military testing to an angry yeti has been blamed but our guest believes. He's found the answer. Thanks in part to disney's frozen no more mistaken identity. Trans and non binary people in quebec celebrate after a judge issues a historic decision telling the province to rewrite parts of its civil code to be appropriately inclusive ain't that a kind shaming when he stormed the.

Positively crawling with them and scorched earth policy. He didn't pick any packs. But mike jack did papa pile of powerful peppers and now. He has a guinness record for speed. Eating the infernal nightmare known as the carolina. Reaper as it happens the friday edition radio that would frankly be worried about the repercussions. It's one of the eareas mysteries of the soviet era and after decades of explanations ranging from the sober-minded to the sinister it may just have been solved through science in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine nine russian students died on a hiking trip in the euro mountains. Over the years just how they died has been discussed dissected and debated their story spawned all kinds of conspiracy theories the most far fetched of which involved a yeti or an alien attack but given the strangeness of the circumstances all theory seemed at least slightly plausible but a newly released. Swiss study has the most likely answer. Joanne gold is one of the scientists behind that study. We reached him in june. Yeah france as you know. There are many theories many ideas about what killed these hikers. But in your view how is it most likely that they died so in our a paper. The put his at than avalanche released in the middle of the night Above the tenth Do different Factors in Urged the players to to leave the tension to hurry so they had to cut the ten from inside and then they went down to the forest and they weren't wearing one of the things they weren't wearing the right clothing or they didn't have their kids the gear with him and they did that. They had to leave quickly. Then you're exactly. There were sleeping so they were in in probably in their sleeping back without Their hiking close. But you know that this theory of the avalanche the reason for this has been proposed before and rejected so why was it rejected before or now it seems more plausible especially it was rejected based on on four main counter arguments Basically the first argument is that the slope angle slope there was to minded. That was the first arguments The second one is that it was uncertain. What was the trigger mechanism because there was no snowfall that night. That's the second counterargument. The third argument is about the type of injuries which were not typical of evident victims and the fourth one is there. Were no sign. No signs of an avalanche twenty six days after the incident when the rescue team arrived on sites. Those are pretty strong. Arguments white wasn't an avalanche. But you're convinced it was so. Yeah that was the. That's the objective of our papers to go through each of these arguments and basically Reba them all using solid physical models and experimental. If that's okay before we get to the models you us because it was quite unusual methodologies and research you did but just on this issue of that. The injuries don't appear to have been those of of an avalanche. We spoke with the author of the book about the at of pass deaths years ago. Back in two thousand eighteen and he said as you've heard before that the hikers not only were they found barefoot but they had very unusual injuries. one was missing tongue another. We're missing eyeballs They were they. Skin was a weird color they Some one of them even seem to have had some sort of high level of radiation. All of these have led to the many many theories as to what strange things might have happened to them. How did you discount those possibilities. It's feasible to explain them individually between you pile them up it leads to something That sounds really extraordinary. But like the missing i bowl and the missing song they were on one months later. And it's the nature and they are wild animals there we can. We can find some explanations that thin but basically i. I want to say that we did not address these things In our paper at what's really focused on israeli the plausibility chiefs of the case. Now why do you think this. Because you've mentioned the other things that the the slope was too slight to have had an avalanche on. It was not typical of where you have avalanches there. there was nothing to trigger it. They had been camped for some time. Some hours there was no sign of an avalanche when they finally went there. So what did you do to find. It wasn't avalanche so for the first point about slope angle We looked at the local topography. And even though the average slope angle of the snow surface was Around twenty two degrees in look two mild. Actually the slow but a lot of irregularities. It was a highly variable and it was made of small steps and they basically put the tent below. One of these steps locally. According to a lot of schematics from the investigation of the slope angle was looking deeper. Writable of the tents and probably closer to twenty eight thirty degrees but even if it's below thirty degrees it's fine because you know this rule that we tell to the general public. This is not such a sharp ruling this critical angle for another. She's visit critical angles for material to slide on top of another. And this depends on the type of material in snow. Depends on snow type so when we put all these data together it's may be possible that actually An avalanche may have slight they're given experimental data and one of the things you did. Which is highly unusual. Is that you you. You look at the disney movie frozen and actually went to find out what to learn about how they animated that tells about the role that disney played in your research. Well i'm gonna dismay finding whether i saw how realistic the snow was looking in this movie. I thought that we could use some of their expertise in mathematics and our expertise in physics to kabul the effects they have in true physics and so we developed a physically based model using their numeric and we developed netherland schmaltzy subjects and this model has been validated using experimental data Three years ago. And i used this model to assess the injuries on the victims. So yes that's okay so the avalanche in frozen leads that pretty similar to what would have happened. That didn't really have another lynch in the in the movie. Frozen most yet Some snow snow simulation character. Snow interaction simulation Yeah no they're model is extremely realistic. And we brought you physics in there to make it even more realistic and validated using experimentally. Somebody you didn't include a talking snowman though. No i mean in my simulations. If you look online we use the snowman as a trigger on the subject of talking snowmen. Another strange things. Do you think that your science may finally put to rest all of these crazy theories that there were signs or yeti or some s- weird experiment that was going on. What do you think that people just love these stories and they're not gonna give up on them no they won't give up and and netherlands she notes to normal. It's too it's too banal for For the death of best. Mr and people don't like a simple things like this part of the russian lower and no. I don't think it will ever be solved. No-one survived so right. It's all part of lure. Now sean appreciate you telling the story. Thank you. Thank you very much. That was joanne. Gome the co author of a new study looking into the mysterious data of pass incident. We reached him in junior france affect when police started looking for suspects after the right at the us capitol. It didn't take long to identify jacob. Chancellor he was photographed inside the capitol shirtless heavily tattooed with his face painted and sporting a fur headdress with horns. Mr chan's is known by himself. Anyway as the cunanan chaiman the conspiracy theory preacher is now charged with civil disorder and entering and remaining in a restricted building among other things except now the shame it is changing his tune. He now wants to testify against donald trump. His upcoming impeachment. Trial albert watkins. His lawyer we reached him in saint. Louis missouri mister watkins. How does your client go from being a true believer storming the us capital to offering to testify against donald trump My client is not unique. My client is and has been going through. Quite a process remember. He was like million jr. Tens of millions of americans groomed by a president who is extremely skilled at communicating in the fashion which did not involve complete sentences. My client fell in love with the president because he heard what he wanted to hear or what he thought was what president trump wanted him to hear. And so why would he tell the senators if he were to testify at the impeachment trial or what he would say was by the time january. Six two thousand twenty one came around my client appeared at the ellipse and the other side of the white house just like everyone else at the request of the president. They he did his call. They appeared to hear the words of a president who had called out to them to help him save our nation and in short order during the course of a rambling presentation. Basically put my client and tens of thousands about those in a position of genuinely believing that they were being invited by the president to walk down pennsylvania avenue to capital to shave our great country. This isn't it not just trying to save his own neck here by testifying the one who got dressed up with the horns and the for and and the paints and everything and participated in storming the capital. I mean couldn't have used his own judgment store. the cab is one of the characterizations that's incorrect show. My client was not shrouding his face in secrecy. He's a long standing and committed follower the shaman faith. This is his attire. It is something that he wears and has worn at not just trump rallies but the course of his adult life. This is a man who was not wearing a bulletproof vest. He didn't have a pipe bomb on them or a gun on him. He wasn't violent. He didn't overcome police. He didn't force himself on another. She didn't assault people. he did not destroy poverty. Your client is is seen carrying a spear proximity six feet in length with an american flag on it. He is Looking for mike pence he leaves a note. Saying it's only a matter of time. Justice is coming. Surely this appears to be a menacing person. Does it not no. Actually it doesn't have to get to know the man behind the horn and the for first of all. The spear is not a functional sphere and it was a flagpole it's part of his part of his attire which may admittedly fall outside the bell curve of normal shape but my client if you look at the at the note and you read the words of the note and you super impose them on the words spoken by the president just minutes earlier behind the white house. That's exactly what the president said justice is coming. Does he mean by that. What does your client mean by. It's only a matter of time. does this coming what. What's the message. He's giving to mike pence that those who are traders to our country who don't shave our nation will be prosecuted. My client was just like tens of thousands of others. They're just like the high school students being jazzed up by their coach before a big game and the friday night when he did was wrong. Of course you haven't allowed me to walk through this posh. My client ends up in jail. After voluntarily surrending surrendering himself epecially and immediately upon finding out that federal law enforcement which looking for him. He wanted to make sure that the president before he left which given the opportunity to take one of the people that he loved one of the beautiful people that he loved mr chancellor li like many many others in his position given the opportunity to do the whole thing and pardon him so is that why he wants to testify against mr trump is because he didn't get that part in and he's he's he's hurting angry. Appreciate the question and all of these just beget additional information. My client then has to be introspective and my client has to recognize what his role was in being the person who is vulnerable enough to be exploited by a president who had his back squarely facing him now. It really does seem as though he would like to use this as a way to to deal with the the trouble. He's in you say that. He admits that he's done something wrong. He is he's a grownup e must've known at some point. Whatever he heard from mr trump that he was storming a building or us he was he was there people vandalizing. Some of them are looking to harm others and so he didn't. He know that this was wrong. No no in fact he didn't and i'm going to suggest you take a look back at nineteen seventy eight and you'll look what happened with a bunch of college graduates husbands wives and children in san francisco who followed their nondenominational christian leader who had given given accolades by many around our country shawls and ended up drinking the kool aid. I'm not and they're dead. And i'm not trying to compare trump to jim jones. I'm trying to compare my client and many many others in like position who were vulnerable and easily exploitable and you don't think that people should take responsibility for their own actions. I did not say that in fact quite the contrary quite the contrary there is culpability. When you're thirty three year old man and you are going into the capital as we all watched on january six. There's culpability but not the type of culpability you are seeing in the knee-jerk reaction that occurred on january six finally. Does your client still believe. In the cuban. On conspiracy theory that democrats are satan worshipping pedophile. Who plotted against. Mr trump will operating a global child sex trafficking ring. I can tell you that. My clients precious of deprogramming is not one which is complete. He's being deprogrammed. Well we all are deprogrammed when we're betrayed whether it's i love of our life or whether it's the mailman with our with our other it doesn't matter. The betrayal is something that requires a process. My client is in the middle of that process. He's a bright man. Shaw spoken man. A gentle man and he's getting it better and faster than many of the rick recalcitrant extraordinarily wealthy white collar crime. Defend dance that you'll see across the country. I leave it there mr watkins. Thank you my pleasure. Thank you albert. Watkins is the lawyer. For jacob chancellor we reached him in saint louis missouri. Mr chan's has been charged after being pictured bare-chested wearing further and horns inside the us capital earlier. This month for more on the story go to our website. Cbc dot ca slash. Aih a crazy retail on it. Help give them thirty four well. Five six seven eight off. There was the sound of mike. Jack eating carolina reaper peppers this past november. Not for fun or not just for fun but for credit and this week he got it. Guinness confirmed that. Mr jackets at a new hot pepper eating record by eating those carolina reapers faster than anyone else in the world. We reached guinness world record holder. Mike jack in london ontario nyc. That sounded awful. I mean what do you feel like. I've felt worse for sure but Yeah it was It was pretty. It was pretty hot. It's pretty hot hot in your mouth in hot going down as well yeah. That's where i think it was. Maybe like about an hour later is when it got like pretty rough in the in the timing and we didn't get a sense of how fast you eating those hot peppers. How many did you eat. And how quickly did you do it for the guinness record for fastest time to eat a free carolina reaper peppers. The time to be was I believe it was Ten point nine five seconds. And i did it in nine point seven two second and so okay. Is it actually better to do it. Quicker than slower. I mean is it because you were chewing chomping down pretty pretty hard on those peppers for sure it's when eating peppers i've eaten A lot of papers it's It's best to eat them fast. To be honest like i didn't even really feel the heat until it was all done and over with because i've kind of built up a tolerance he i guess most people You know if you just touch them to your tongue. It's going to be pretty unbearable. But i've been at this for a while on a scale of one to ten. How hot are carolina. Report reaper peppers. Say for most people on a skill One to ten. it's probably a twelve. I mean how do they rate in the scale of hot peppers. Is that one of the hottest carolina. Reaper it has the guinness record right now for the world's hottest pepper so they averaged one point six million scoville heat units and they can get up to I think the the top end is like two point. Two million go ville he'd units. Wow and so and you. hadn't you consumed you shoot them back. And so how did you prepare your body for that. Well it's it's best not eat a spicy stuff Especially world peppers on an empty stomach. So i try to eat something that's gonna like Sit in your stomach. So i usually. My favorite thing is like a some friday hash. Browns home fries sort of thing. I like eat a eat. A bowl tour those before and And yeah kinda makes a kind of a layer in your stomach and then and then afterwards too you don't really feel like eating after eating respect and stuff sometimes and But the best thing to do is to just try to keep eating just to make sure your stomach doesn't want tickets empty and assists those factors in there. That's where it's bad. News is okay. So milk doesn't help. You can't drink milk to mitigate that That's what that's what most people would use Milk or some kind of a dairy products. But i'm actually vegan. So i don't. I don't do any theory if you're vegan. You must care about what you put into your your stomach into your gut. So why would you. Why would you punish your your intestines to this degree. I'm being more convenient for the animals not necessarily as a as a dietary choices salita like oreos and vegan. Donuts stuff like that. So it's not like a super health thing I just like spicy food and I just kept getting spicer and spicier. And then i tried eating hot peppers found if there was a kind of like a following or kind of like a cult community. I guess of of people who know eat peppers and other spicy challenges and stuff like that and realized that i was good at it and i kind of pushed myself as far as i could go. Why did you decide that you wanted to into competitive hot pepper. Eating kinda just escalated I guess i'll kind of start the bear like when i was in college i had roommates. Who are into you know. Just hot sauce and stuff like that like You know francs or whatever and they kind of got me into just hot sauce. It was kinda like. Oh what's the matter. Mike like you don't want any hot stuff on your pizza or was there something so then i would You know i'd partake in that and One of my friends Hero wants start youtube channel and we didn't really know what we're gonna do but then he was like. Oh you're really good at You know with the spicy stuff. So why don't we do that. So i watched a couple of videos and started doing some of the stuff and people liked it and pushing my limits. Eventually i looked into like this world records and i learned how to like feed eat. I i didn't really know how to do that. And yeah now that's my. That's my fourth guinness world record. He's oh pepper eating all perpetuating. Yeah there's eight different Guinness records on the for eating hot peppers on their website. And i have four of them. Now so i'm halfway to to get the whole collection but what's the next one. The next one. I'm going to try is a little different. I'm just gonna start a training now for it. It's a for most Jalapenos eating a minute. Jalapenos aren't as hot but The records a little bit harder than some of the other ones i have. Because there's a lot more people willing to eat how then Goes peppers or carolina reapers. So they have like a pretty good record set so it has to be pretty fast to get that one. I think i can do it. I just need to train a little bit more and get a little bit faster. Well my good luck with the training. Thanks all right. Take care thank you. That was mike jack. He set a new guinness record for the fastest time to eat three carolina. Reaper chili peppers. He spoke to us from london ontario. It's always exciting. When you get back something someone stole from you but sometimes it's kind of insulting in october of two thousand eighteen. Someone stole a bunch of guitars that belong to the band. Fifty four forty. Most of them were recovered. Pretty quickly but won the won. The band felt was most unique. A gibson dove acoustic remain at large. I assume they gave up on it. But while investigating a break in this month chiloe ac. Rcmp officers wound up at a place in surrey b c where that lonesome dove was found. Obviously great news but what adds insult and in credulity to injury is that the police also founded enormous array of other stolen stuff including luggage guns clothing jewelry and electric scooters electric scooters plural could have been to could have been sixteen. I have absolutely no idea how you steven one electric scooter without also stealing the person on it. But that's not my point. My point is this is a much loved irreplaceable. Most unique instrument and it was just sitting there on sold two years and four months later surrounded by knickknacks suitcases necklaces and two to sixteen electric scooters. Surely in all that time the thieves had realized it was a cool guitar. Belong to fifty four forty so maybe they just didn't think i was that big a deal or maybe they just couldn't track down anyone to fence it but if they couldn't find offense i feel like fifty. Four forty should take offense. You know you're smart funny friends. Who always seem to have the best celebrity gossip. I'm talking about the ones who always know. We should be watching or reading or listening to what if you could pick their brains. Every week pop chat is a brand new podcast but does exactly that and feels like spending time with your best friends. So join me. Elevator abdul mahmoud and a panel of the smartest culture critics that i knew as we dissect the discourse but also have a great time doing it. I'm matt victor. I'm and we're back with seat at the table. The podcast where we have in depth conversations with notable guests from media sports and pop culture. But this time we're capturing personal stories about the power of the black lives matter movement the urgency of this moment and really what it will take to move forward seat at the table is available now on. Cbc listen on spotify or wherever. You get three podcast. A quebec judge has ordered the provincial government to remove a series of legal hurdles keeping trans and non binary from enjoying equal rights. Yesterday justice gregory moore gave the province until the end of this year to rewrite sections of the civil code that he found to be in violation of the charter of rights. They include provisions that prevent trans and non binary parents from having the records of their children's birth reflect those parents gender identity. B heller and their partner geno were two of the plaintiffs in the case their farmers and the parents of two young kids we reach db heller at their farm in brownsboro chatham quebec e b. This decision was a long time coming. What was your first emotion when he found out that you'd one. That's a good question. I don't think unemotional came out. It was more like. Oh finally you know it. I just felt like relief and this this began this journey. Very difficult journey began with the documentation of your first child's birth. You and your partner agenda. What did what trouble did you run into right away. Yeah so when i met. Jenna is in the process of transitioning. She wanted to have kids. I wanted to have kids. So we got about That when i was pregnant she was in the process of changing her. Legal designation of sex at that time at that time in quebec. So we're talking about in two thousand thirteen. There was a lot of paperwork involved with having to change your designation of sex so she had submitted the paperwork and our child was born in early april. One filled out the birth certificate request In quebec at that time you could have two mothers. You could have two fathers but you could only have two and it had to be mother or father and so that meant you couldn't be listed as parents you had to be correct mother or mother exactly so so. We listed both of ourselves as mother. Which was the best we felt. We could do at the time but came back to us the birth certificate. You know three weeks later when you're really sleep deprived and working way too hard on a smaller ganic. Farm listing. Jenna as the father. And that just felt like you know a punch in the then. General received her change in designation of sex a month or two later We called up the ville the government here in quebec and said what can we do to change this. This doesn't make sense. You know like the genesis just Had this change this legal In designation of sex. And how can we make sure that. That's reflected on our first child's birth certificate. And you know. I think eventually a manager of a manager somewhere said well. You can take it up in the court and that's what you did now is that his mother are d- d- do. How do you identify. So i don't identify as mother. I defy nonbinary so to my kids. I am their parents. They often call. Maybe but mother was the best possible option at the time since there was no parent and at the time i actually wasn't identifying as non binary but since then i have and that's something that with this decision we can change that as well now. Okay so now. I then your first child eventually went to school. And so what happened when you when he tried to get Your first child registered. Yeah so in january for she was going to state school. I went to the local school on the day that you're supposed to and brought all of the paperwork including birth certificate and you know walked in and we live in a pretty small town and lots of parents there who i knew and i realized i was going to have to essentially out my partner to the secretary in front of a whole bunch of other parents and You know her door was wide open. And i did my best to try to share as as discreetly as i could like. This isn't how my kids sees her parents. Her parents her mom her. Dad you know. Can you do something in the school forms to make a note and the secretary was fine. She didn't really understand why these things would be so different but but she said well. This is what's listed. So i have no choice but to list that your kids file and i walked out of that that day and felt like i guess. I shouldn't bother me so much. It shouldn't be such a big deal. But why should it be such a big deal to change it. Then you know. And i think both jenin. I cried quite a bit that day. Just feeling like god. Why does this have to follow leaving. Our kid But now it's come. There is just as gregory moore who Does yeah that's why should you have to go through that. So just tells about what the superior court of quebec ruling what it changes. It says no trans people do have a right to be accurately identified on their documents. You know the paperwork itself. That's not the most important thing in life but it's such an important piece if it can't follow who you who you are and if it doesn't your identity the justice more said that the the the the Zen constitutional not allowing non binary people to change their sex or to birth as it corresponded to gender identity. Being parents he said it violates the dignity and equality rights have non binary people. What did it mean for you to read those words. You know When i testified in this trial and i was testifying on behalf of my family and my partner. I hadn't at that point. Come to the realization that i was non binary i had struggled with gender issues my whole life and had been shamed about it and had felt like i didn't really have a right to have a space as non binary individual. Because you know it's not a big deal. I just shouldn't it just doesn't matter. I shouldn't worry about it. You know. I'm i'm here as a great ally and support my partner and two other trans folks but you know it doesn't matter if you're non binary whatever and i and that's that's shame and guilt and fear that had been living with my whole life and to hear those words does really help me in my own personal journey of feeling about being a non binary person and taking up that little tiny piece of space on a little piece of paper somewhere And i do appreciate the justice for saying that. I know there are made. There probably are some legal hurdles. Still ahead But this is this is great news for you and for your family and i really appreciate you. Tell us about it. Thank you thank you. So much is apparent. A a farmer. We reached them. In brown's berg chatham quebec William hudson wants to see a public inquiry into the deaths of indigenous people at the hands of police last year. His sixteen year old daughter aisha hudson died after she was shot by winnipeg officer. Police say ms hudson was driving a stolen car with several passengers. That they believed was involved in a liquor store robbery. There was a police chase and miss hudson was shot. Video of that moment has been shared online now. Manitoba's independent investigation unit. or i. i you as released. Its findings including a recommendation from the prosecution service that the officer not be charged yesterday. William hudson questioned the reports findings and wondered how the police response might have been different. If his daughter hadn't been indigenous he also remembered his daughter aisha great smile. You know if you definitely want to light up the room. She wanted to get allowed to swim. The room she loves sports had earned basketball and hockey. She loved both tried to pray and hope for the best but also prepare myself for the worst but as a parent. You can never prepare yourself for this. I've tried a tried. And i tried walk in here and last and to be ready for this decision. It's bad to say. Because i do what the decision was going to be before. Hearing the report with the decision given by the investigation unit. I feel complete angry. Field of report was unclear and one-sided i feel frustrated and disappointed with the outcome. The i worked with the police every day. The can't be trusted to give a fair opinion. Report states that the footage is the most reliable piece of evidence statement from the subject officer and his regulation does not add up with the video footage. Look at the statement. Watch the video. They do not go together. It's what i did last night. I watched the video over and over. How many times for a parent to watch that video but appeared to watch that video over over heroes guns gunshots. Take your daughter's life and trying to put the report together. I was william hudson. The father of sixteen year old aisha hudson the civilian director of manitoba's you called the investigation a complete and thorough review of all the available evidence. He said he is satisfied. That no stone was left unturned. The pinatubo mouse has been through a lot as its name suggests the mouse. The mouse is habitat is mount pinatubo in the philippines in nineteen. Ninety-one volcano erupted killing seven hundred and twenty two people destroying the area and because of the sheer destruction. The small mouse was thought to be extinct. Turns out the opposite is true. We know that. Thanks to research by danny relating a researcher at chicago's field museum but before he could publish his findings. Mr belaid died. So eric record picked up his friends work. Mr rickard is the curator of vertebrates history. Museum of utah in the lead author on a new paper about the mammals of mount pinatubo. We reached him in salt lake city. Utah eric can you just describe what the terrain with the landscape is like on mount pinatubo. Now yes well. It's a far cry from what it was before. The eruption when it was closed with old growth forest Right now it's actually probably looks pretty much the same as it did. Ten years ago when When danny belay t the the final survey on On the mountain. And what is it. Baron completely completely barren but it's a very eroded Landscape so there are lots of landslides. it was dangerous for the crews to work there. They had to be very careful where they went because they were constantly hearing landslides. So what that does is it. Sort of resets the clock for plant Succession so everything was always. I mean it it. It's sort of in a state of limbo in terms of being able to proceed to forest thirty years after. Yes so now. How unlikely was it that this little most would have survived and thrived. Well at the time we thought That it would been very unlikely All the information we had Going back to the first specimen and only specimen of this mouse it was it was known to science which which was back in nineteen fifty eight. I believe Every everything we know about it suggested that it was restricted to the mountain. It wasn't on nearby mountains or anything like that so we thought that given the devastation of the volcanic eruption that Things were were pretty dire. And how how is it doing. It's doing great Contrary to everything. We expected the Disturbed landscape Was even though it was very harshened forbidding it was The animals occurred there. Were principally native species and most of them weren't Most of them were species that are kind of ecological generalists. And they're very broadly distributed and the in luzon and even beyond it and some other areas of the philippines but Apple musical beyond us is apparently restricted to the mountain and yet it was the by far the most abundant animal that the surveys encountered looked like It's about i. Guess it's about the size of a chipmunk It doesn't look like a chipmunk it looks like like a big deer mouse Big native mouse They have lart fairly. Large is enlargers. And it's very colorful It has sort of a reddish brown Pelleg coloration. That is really nice. It's a very attractive mouse. So in addition to being a very attractive mouse description. This this this this little guy just likes it rough. They just likes to. This lives on challenge. Yeah that's right. And and as i said it was a surprise but then when we thought about it makes sense and even know the nineteen ninety. One eruption of pinatubo was absolutely devastating. and destroyed most of the forest on the mountain. It was it was actually very mild or it was it was not as intense is previous eruptions that occurred during the geological history. The mountains and there were several of them and people. A lot of people died in that direction whether seven hundred Many of them escaped me. Just just was one of the extraordinary that they got out in time but it destroyed the area. Is it possible that the landscape will recover. It will return to the point where people might settle there. Be able to settle their again. They actually are already moving into the area. So the ta People who were often short-statured people who who came actually are descendants of the earliest humans in in the philippines but are they're hunter-gatherers They live in smaller communities before the eruption there were communities on the mountain Where they where they lived and currently. I don't know how close their living to the mountain but they definitely are moving into the area and they're growing crops again and things of that sort It's their ancestral home. And actually they have they have a legal right to be there and and It's their domain. Essentially which is actually very nice but So people are there and they. Are you know they are moving in. Hopefully what we hope is that. The area will be protected both for to encourage the asia and also to to encourage the development over time. But it's going to take some time this research. You've mentioned a couple of times danny by who was doing this. Who died before he could publish the work. Why was it important for you to publish that. That study that worked that he had done. Well it was interesting work of course but it was only one one of many projects that danny was working on And it started and sort of set aside and and after he died it was just something we had to pick up and run with mostly to honor danny but also to To report but we think is a very encouraging sign that they're everything is just doom and gloom and even something as tragic and catastrophic volcanic eruption has a silver lining that. It tells us that that this animal in particular the pinatubo mouse but also mammals of the philippines in general are incredibly resilient in the face of this kind of catastrophe as are the filipino. People it's it's really interesting story Lovely to hear about your colleague and thanks speaking with us. Thank you very much eric. Rickard is the curator of vertebrates at the natural history. Museum of utah. He was in salt lake city. And we have some photos of that attractive mouse at cbc dot ca slash ai. H in new memoir. Just as i am the great cecily tyson reflects on what she learned her ninety six years. She writes relish the ride and the groundbreaking black actors lived that mantra until the variant miss tyson digest. Two days after her book was published. Cecily tyson embodied the lives of others on screen and more than one hundred film tv and stage roles from driven schoolteacher to a one hundred and ten year old former slave. She very deliberately chose to play remarkable. Resilient women including kereta scott king and harriet tubman in nineteen. Seventy two on the cbc's k. Livingston show miss. Tyson talked about her breakout role in sounder. A film in which she played the dignified wife of louisiana sharecropper she said it was a role she felt proud to take on after years of reading screenplays. That turned her stomach to get ourselves in a position where we can be selective about what we do you know at this point. Fifty one percent of the movie going industry is black three years ago. The movie industry was dying. You know they were wondering how i mean if you notice all the big studios are closing down. Their merging and closing them and black films have literally saved the movie industry. This is my third film. it's been four years. Since i did one and i was beginning to think i would never ever do. Another film because I just have not been able to do the types of films that have been done in the past few years when i read a script. Either my skin tingles on my stomach. Turns and my stomach churning a lot That's how i described that. I know that have to work. And it's very difficult to turn down a role but you have to feed a family or pay your rent. It's been very difficult for me because I i have been selected but there's certain things that i just cannot do. I am not putting them down completely. Am i putting down those blaxploitation films. Completely because i tell you they served a purpose. They allowed us to get our foot in the door. I mean the medium of film is an educational medium and it's supposed to depict a life as it is what we need now are positive images for our children So that their lives will be something. I mean we've gotten past worrying about being black. Now we've gotten past kinky hair you know and And now the energies that we used to you used to use to just just just function as a human being in this world. You know because you're black you you're different because you're has kinky it's bad it's and you know we've just gotten over that now. For god's sakes get our youth some more positive images to channel their energies toys. You know so that. The citizens of tomorrow can be president of the united states. Do you know what i mean. I feel very strongly about that. And and you know. I know there arguments pro and con arguments by by people who say well it does exist. We know that it does exist. It not only exists in our race. It exists in the white race to but you know they have. They have the godfather and they have james bond but they also have love story and they have the immigrants and they have romeo and juliet and they have all of those. You know. it's not just all really you know. And and that's my fight. Let's balance the scale a little bit and give us a choice you know. Don't say this is all they want. Give us a choice and let us make our own decisions. Cecily tyson speaking with former. Cbc host k. livingston in nineteen seventy-two.

Steelers Hangover, Part 1: You dont have to love the way the Steelers played in Dallas, but can you dig 8-0?

"Pittsburgh steeler fans welcome to the steelers hangover. This is a party like it's nineteen seventy-nine hanging over. It's a good hangover. Wait a second. Did i say seventy. Was i supposed to say nine hundred and ninety nine because of the print song from nine hundred. Eighty three or tony duffy. Was i supposed to say party. Like it's nineteen seventy eight wait. I can't even say nine hundred and seventy eight because in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight the pittsburgh steelers were not what record or they tony. Duffy from behind the curtain. There ain't no for the first time ever. Not even not even our great grandfathers could say that they saw that jimmy stewart was a steelers fan. Too from not mistaken. He was from indiana. Pa i gotta tell you that. I i'm sure he was but so i'm pretty excited about the whole thing. Tony and it's one of those things that we've never seen before now before you get into anything. I know we have some big breaking news. We're going to get into that. I promise you. We're going to talk about the kobe test. But let's get back to what we're talking about. You don't have to love the way. The steelers played for most of that game. Tony but yet do you gotta love eight or now. Yeah yeah. I mean we. We knew this is a tough stretch for them. Three games on the road and then of course. The injuries on defense kept piling up after devin bush. Mike tyson lewis. So i guess it's it's great that they got out of that with a could've been a lot worse. They lost yesterday so every now. And then you're going to have an ugly one in. It's better to learn why he went and learn. Why you lose that. That is the truth and we're really excited. We are gonna talk about that. Because but look i know him wearing scrubs. This is because of my job. No i have not dr bad. I'm not a doctor. I am not doing this. Because of the steelers positive cova test and i know you're all aching to hear about that. It just came out over twitter just a little bit ago and so we're going to let you know that vance mcdonald has been placed on the covid list nor the reports that we are getting right. Now from twitter rafit apollo came out with it Pretty big name in steelers reporting. So i've got to say that Raise gonna put his name behind it. That it's probably right on right tony at absolutely those guys are as much as we like to make fun of seminars guys when when they report something. It's usually spot on yes. So here's the deal so its vance on the list. He played in yesterday's game had a catch. But here's the thing he was ill and practice the other day so but the test didn't come up until today. He was not feeling well on friday in now. They're coming up with the test so we'll just have to see what happens with that. Yeah it's a pretty high profile player. A guy that's that's obviously in on a lot of place so you know it just depends on if anybody else got it in how many at this point you know what i mean we will just track it and see it and there's gonna be a lot of a lot of information to come out on this you know. Hey we can speculate all we want right now alls we know is that this news came out in half an hour ago and tony. Tony tony the the breaking news guy. Because he's the guy who broke the news to all of us beat a btc. He sought. I so i was the first seen those arguments people on twitter. But other stuff i i came across my feet and and i you know became a professional for like two seconds so wes asked. Why do they do that crap. If he wasn't feeling well them out. Take over precaution immediately. You know if he doesn't have a fever at the time you. I mean we don't know we just don't know we don't know what was in it but i will tell you this. It seems like the entire time that the guy with a pulse on covid has been mike tomlin so he doesn't take these things very lightly in fact he has been lauded for the way he handled covert the entire time. You also got understand this. We are now in cold and flu season. It's i mean it's starting you know. I'm in a sales job or i go to doctors offices every single day i of course completely fitted with everything. So i don't get but with all the doorknobs that i touch with all the doorknobs that everybody touches with more kids going back to school. You know this is going to be very interesting. As far as what's going to be happening going forward tony. But i know one thing that i know that we have not seen a tennessee. Titans situation since that happened way back before week. Four and now. We're getting ready to go into week ten so it seems that a lot of people excuse me a lot of teams have figured out how to find one one situation him and keep keep it away from everybody else. Look at what. We thought just a week ago with the ravens. We really thought that this was going to be an epidemic on the raver. Ravens marlon humphrey. Humphrey gets it and they put a few guys on the list because they were known associates. So don't be surprised if you see ebron and ban or whatever next couple of days on the list as they're watching them and testing them because they're around him a lot so that that that could be an opportunity but i don't think that you might you'll be in a situation where you're gonna lose a bunch of guys because they're gonna take this very seriously and we've seen since titans Incident that seems to be never ending. We've seen at least weekly one or two teams. You know report players that either had to go into the protocol or tested positive. It's just as you said it's it's it's a virus it's heading into cold and flu season and and to expect players to be any different than than everybody else when it comes to come to this. I mean i. I you know i'm hesitant to ever criticize anybody for getting sick. I mean i was critical of the titans because they were n- Negligent and openly negligent. But every you know as far as the football players unless you're in a bubble which they can't be somebody was gonna eventually the steelers. Somebody was eventually pro more likely going to test positive for this. So it's just it's just it's just the reality of twenty twenty so i'm looking at the live chat Prayers go out to brad and his family Hope everybody's feeling better soon All of our family out there in the live chat. We do really appreciate you. We love you out there so thank you all very much for coming in and supporting us as well. Let hate for tony romo out there. Tony deaf people. i think. Hey tony romo more than they hate. Chris collins by the way. I love chris collins. He's my guy. And i have always said that. But tony romo is kinda grading. Well i mean it was just a matter of time for color. Innocent analysts are all like offensive coordinators. It's just a matter of time before people hate them. I mean tony romo was was so so popular in refreshing and back in two thousand seventeen but but it's just a matter of time before those guys start the great on on the on fans because they're they're neutral so when you're neutral thomas an almost seems like they're running for the other team at you. That's always been my opinion anyway so patty man says he doesn't drink corona anymore because of romo right and so now hey you just Associated corona with romo. There you go As roma's says no one will ever be john. Madden for me. No one will ever be the great michael's that's my guy. A lot of people don't like call where i get it. I i really enjoy him i think. Yeah when you put al collins worth together. That's that's a five-star match for me. I really love those but hey for each their own. I get it. Well i mean you know a big package for nbc collins worth and and look how much money they paid roma. They're not going to do that if they think. These guys are are are at their jobs. I think they're both good at their jobs. Especially in collins. I think they're top notch in rome. Oh i don't know how long it's gonna keep going to be able to do the Diagnosing plays beforehand. But while he does it i think we we Enjoy it because it doesn't take long before the game changes in in these players is on. Our players are out of touch with the current league. So you know one thing. I like about tony romo. He's not phil simms. The guy replaced and i was big phil simms Just didn't like him. But you know. That's that's how everybody is with announcers some out out there Victimless flare says. He hates jim nance which Which surprises me. Because i don't hear a lot of people but hey that is. That's a valid opinion. If you don't like any of these guys just like i like you don't like any of these guys. That's that's what you like. I mean there's food out there that i don't like there's different things that i don't like i don't like sushi. There's some things that people are just absolutely crave it so there you go but let's get back to the newt. The true news in the true news is not a player with covid. they will get that taken care of. We can speculate. We could point fingers already just like. We're speculating in pointing fingers that a team. That's eight i no. That had a bad day at the office and still got the job done right now. We're speculating that it's doomsday. Now and it's fitting because they used to co- dallas the doomsday defense. But this is what. I've been thinking about ever since the end of that game first of all i was thrown. I was absolutely thrilled. That they won that game in that fashion I didn't want them to have to win. Your by losing what fifty six minutes in the madly taking the lead but dallas was really up for that game mcvay. Pittsburgh wasn't up for that game but all week all you heard was dallas is going to get killed even dallas supporters. We had the fantastic got. Aj from blogging. The boys from espy nation Aj is incredible and we've had a few other people from dallas and we've been on different shows in. They were saying that you know. Nobody believes in the team. And so this team that nobody believed in with a four screen quarterback said. Hey we'll show you. Who does that. Remind you of. Tony reminds you of the twenty. Nineteen steelers look fits. They gave some teams last year. Forty niners they should have won that game ravens in last october. So i mean i. I'm not trying to make too many uses wrong. Because i mean you know but i think you have to. You have to run because of the fact that the cowboys which were up for that game and they want they're trying to win division so they're still alive for their division and the steelers were missing a few keep pieces on defense. I don't think that's. I don't think we can ignore that. Who was most glaring to you. Tony because i'm looking at this in. I realized how much they miss. Mike helton and i realized how much they miss tyson. Lula and there's other guys you can look at how much they miss they. They even missed devin bush in that game they. They missed the missed. Those guys that weren't in they're not saying that that the guys that played for them Didn't do well. Mondo had had some fits brilliance. Buds had some fits brilliant saga couple of weeks ago. Spelane we've seen what splaine has done. The next man up has been working. Of course you want those regular guys but my question to you. is tony. Who you're looking at here and say man. We really need them. I think it's pretty obvious in my opinion didn't do because he. He went down with the beginning of the ravens game up until the ravens game. They were spectacular. Would stopping the run. You've been even the titans eight. What they limited henry to what seventy eight yard eighty one yards whatever. It was now and now sudden last. Two games there They've been gassed for about four hundred yards collectively combined. So i think it's a collection. I think you lose boys. You say okay. They can get they can get by without a lot of playmakers around him and you know they can help us. Filleting infants williams and they have all the of course the diamond nickel packages. But now you lose a lulu. And you lose mike helton. That's three main guys that three main contributors from from your defense that you lose back to back to back and you can. Only you can only plug so many holes. But i think they really need to get a loop back and not rushing back if he's not healthy but the sooner he gets better as far as i'm concerned so there's a lot of questions out there. One of the questions is probably the scariest thing that happened yesterday. When benn had his knee bent back and as of right now have not seen any news. On ben's ni. It looks like that. I would be surprised if he was out because i thought as that game wore on that he started to look more. Fine you know. When that first happened he still led them on a touchdown drive in and actually he looked. He looked pretty good. He had was favoring and first. But then you see his armlet stronger right. I mean you know. I know the knees going affect the arm a little bit because of planting allow of the and i understand that but ben was just a warrior out there. So what are your thoughts on that whole thing. Is it just something that the man's going to be sore or something that Come out of nowhere. When mike tomlin's doing this report tomorrow. Yeah i yeah i don. I think it's anything that that it's going to be lingering. Because he saw ago when he had that meniscus tear i did he came back in the game but he really wasn't that effective but yesterday he seemed he seemed fine after after he went into the locker room. And as you said he seem find soon as as soon as he got up from the injury he looked. that's as good as he looked. All of the first half determined to lead them to a touchdown. So i i think he'll be fine. I think if it was anything critical. That's going to keep them out a few weeks. I think we would have heard that by nuxie such a high profile player that it's hard to keep those things secrets from the the big is like adam. Schefter in rappaport knows county people. Well fia says enwrap report on pat mcafee said that ben was getting a check out today. Just be safe and we'll have to well. We can't have jeff. Hartmann asked ian rapoport because apparently Ian rapoport is like justin hartwig to you to jeff hartmann. I guess. I guess something something happened. Where ian rapoport has blocked jeff on twitter jealous and chips. Look goal is dude. You really is. And so yeah. We need to have a contest to see who who has the best luck stagger. While joe john stagger will he was one of my childhood sports reporting idols. And then allison arguing about something on twitter and next thing you know. I'm blocked blocked half the city. Apparently i guess i can't be too proud. I'm not a big fan of john but There we go. Dj t. Only ben was pointing out to his pointing to his ldl. I can't remember many elsie l. injuries. Mike kelly says this. I'm no problem with this either dramatic ben. Any ben is. Is that guy you know. That's but he comes back out on the field and he doesn't. He is definitely. Does anyone here blocked by big ben seven. Dj to wipe the only is. Have you been blocked by big bend. Seven no in fact. If years ago. I was Dealing with the woman who the his his account and trying to get her to tell me if he was coming back remember when he said he was going to retire or he was thinking about it and she wouldn't give me the The inside scoop of of trying to get the biggest such my life and it didn't work but no. I've never been blocked by ben. But apparently i'm in a minority. There are at least. I was before before you unblocked everybody. Dick long woods has been wasn't being dramatic. You know i. I wasn't really calling him dramatic I was just reading one but you know. He has a propensity for being dramatic in the past. Yeah he was hurt. He was hurting. But the thing about ben is he plays hurt in tony. And i we have this coming out today. The on the retro show and it's amazing. What ben did when in that pie in that. Cincinnati wildcard game and. That's nicholson check. It out on any place that you go ahead and download your favorite podcast. Check out that shows we recap the two thousand sixteen wildcard game. Ben goes out. His shoulder is dragging down to the ground. He comes back in and he still wills them to that win. A hurt ban is still good. Then i will absolutely say that as well Tony i can tell you. Let's let's get off the you know. Whoa is us eight and we didn't like the way we look yesterday right. Let's look at some bright spots. Because i gotta tell you. There are some huge bright spots on this team in the first one i'm going to say is juju smith. Schuster has become more like hines ward than than anyone you ever think of he is. Your new hines ward. And i'm starting to think that You might wanna find a way to keep this guy. Because he is the most unselfish franchise player that you could have and ben has the report with that the true but anybody could get a report with this guy because he works in works hines had rapport with a lot of different quarterbacks. He'd a reporter. We've with cordell. He had a rapport with With tommy maddox. He even had a rapport with kent graham. Of course with ben he had a report. This this guy is a worker. And i think juju has really really become that guy that you trust and no and i think he's going to not just be a safety valve but that go-to guy that when it's on the line you go to juju. And now he is guys around him. That makes it easier for you up to go to juju. Remember what we were saying. All about juju when he took over well antonio brown was doing was making it so jude you can get open making it so guys get an open now too but juju one of those guys that could have a fourteen hundred yards season. He doesn't need to have a fourteen hundred yards season because he's more concerned about this stack. The w that's it. What are your thoughts on jujubes performance. Because that was a brilliant performance yesterday he was clutch especially in the second. Half in the touchdown the second effort on that touchdown it was sorta like last week when he the second effort to get down to the one. I think before. James conner such down against the last week before anyway. But he's been making a lot of those kind of second effort plays this. You're driving for first downs Bullying defensive backs over. And i think it's a it's a a testament to the work. You put in the off season you know you saw him and james conner. I'll have season posing and you know after workouts like we marveled at how big and strong what starting to pay off now and i think You it starting to see that conditioning. Pay for jew as we near the halfway point in the season we knew that they were going to need him at some point that you know they were going to Guys like chase claypool it. And yet they johnson Drawing attention and then when that happens boom now now your poison juju and he's going to beat you like he did on sunday The cowboys you know what. This is not a show about fantasy football. But i'm going to bring up. Andrew wilder. He says fantasy question live chat. I have a chance to get the andre johnson. I give tyler boyd. Should i do it first of all you have to. Johnson had some nice place yesterday but he also had a play where it didn't work to him but they brought railway in for the very same play and it worked in. That was huge down the stretch. He's asking about giving tyler boyd of cincinnati. Where you're going to see this week and a guy you know what. Don't give up tyler boyd. I love deontay. And i love what he could do. If if it's a keeper league you might want to look at its shore but for the rest of the season. I've had tyler boyd. He's been money. So that's i'm going to say that's your free fantasy advice and the last one i'm going to do. That's your free fantasy advice and diontae johnson. It might be his turn over the next two or three weeks to really shine. It's just that's the great thing about this receiving core. It's it's so it's so deep it's so versatile and it's a great thing right now so back to the the wide receiver the wide receivers. They are still very good on this team. They have some drops yesterday but ben is finding them he spreading the ball around and they are. They are reliable for the most part if they have dropped they comeback. We saw lebron Couple of weeks ago had a huge drop than giving the end zone. He's the guy. I want to talk about but before i do that. Like o'malley says juju does the dirty work. He gets the tough yards. Love his play. I think we are falling back in love with juju and there you go absolutely Sean manahan has a super champ. Thank you for the two hundred. The two hundred dollars. Now thank you for the two dollars. Brady plus big chest equals thirty. Eight to three loss. Antonio brown not very great in his debut Ryan shazier warned. The buccaneers the other day. Saying that Going to be good. That's not going to be a good go for you. Guys in the the saints game. The saints beat him earlier so this is supposed to be retribution. This was supposed to yo the coming out party of the buccaneers of bruce arians. In it is all going to happen. Yeah you'd think that has anything to do with the watering down of that team by bringing an antonio brown or do you just think it was just a bad day at the office. Well i think. I think yesterday it was just a bad day at the office. Because i think the saints really good in in their. They've been a dominant team in that division for the most part for for a while now and just because you you pick up a lot of star players doesn't mean you're going to dominate dominant. We've seen that in the past in the nfl. But i think interning a brown. I mean diva receivers. Eventually diva we saw. Te'o we saw what a few other guys have in recent years. So it'd be interesting to see if he can get along with. Tom brady long term but but he has already had a lot of weapons there and the already had a head coach. Bruce arians who kind of said he didn't want them so it's gonna be interesting to see how that plays out absolutely so tony wrap up yesterday's game. What do you think was the key to them. Getting back into that game in cleaning it up. Because here's the thing tony. I and i'm going to wrap my thoughts with this. The pittsburgh steelers have finally become that team that they don't have to be fantastic for fifty seven minutes in in the game but they know when to comeback in. I keep on saying it. Let's put the women. Children abed go looking for dinner. And that's what. Ben roethlisberger is rallying team to do. I feel like this is a team that could that knows how to get lucky now in. They're getting lucky and they're getting in situations where they can get out of all in the same three hour span in that entire game they can get out of trouble and they know when it's time to say all right kidding around now over. Let's do it. So am i right on their. Tony is this team. 'cause they couldn't do this in the entire decade there really couldn't right and they were snake bitten. When stuff like that happened in could not regroup. I don't think regrouping better than ben roethlisberger pittsburgh steelers right now. I absolutely agree. And i think that's that speaks to having having playmakers on both sides of the ball for for a while there it was just the offense of was trying to carry the defense and in previous years. I think yesterday to me that the thing that that the most important sequence of the game was after benn got hurt. Knee led them down to the Touchdown the james washington. And then make if it's patrick came up with the Well i don. I don't know who stripped stripped ceedee. Lamb the ball but make it fitzpatrick him up with that fumble their sutton okay sutton and just like that. You're if you're cowboys up thirteen. Nothing you're starting to believe this. You know this is a team that you were a fourteen point underdog against and all of a sudden go into the locker room after chris. Boswell kicks feel going. You're you're you're only up thirteen. And so i think that was huge that they scored those Those nine points there in the final two minutes and i. I think that was what we got pittsburgh back in the game and and also help them win it. So we're gonna play stock up and stop stock down before we take a break here and i want you to start getting your questions ready when we come back. After the break we'll be talking wouldn't be doing some q. And a. but who's who's keeping out at night on this team and who do not need to worry about so instead of stock up stock down. Let's say no worries or start pacing so here we go or we're going to start pacing over the running game james conner. Thank yes a little bit a little bit. How about cam sutton in the defensive backs yes a little a little bit. Not not not much a little bit. Because they're playmakers. And i think that's the biggest i think that's the most important part has had playmakers defense mick. Fitzpatrick not no. I'm i'm fine with him. i think. Make his is really coming into his own. And he's defense on the the other side one more the offensive line in david. Decastro i was i was gonna i was hoping you say that because yes i think that's part of the problem with the running game and james conner and it gets part of the problem. That's why ben is big. Become the quickest getting ready to the football. I think it's the line's been struggling more than more than we realize he. So you know what. And i already had my answers of course stock up on minka mink really fantastic A lot of people calling for kevin dotson is i mean. Are you really going to bench. A veteran in the in favor of kevin dotson. No because i think we have to remember the castro Missed several several weeks started the year with with an injury and there was no training camp. So that's the luxury of being knows you you have you you can work is back into the lineup so no i think you know the cashiers. The pro bowler is one of the best guards in the nfl. So i think it's just. He just needs to work himself back into a playing shape. Perhaps and get his rhythm and timing everything back five dollars from derek sessions. We put that one up on the board thank you. Derrick steelers reminds us of patsy a few years ago when they would give tons of yards. Tighten up inside the twenty. The last thing. I'm going to say about the steelers defense in with everybody else on the team. Look this team special. You watch the kansas city chiefs game yesterday and they. They almost blew that game. Well we had some technical difficulties. It's just me for now. Brian appears to be down. So i can take this time to wrap up the first half of the show of the the hangover and if you're listening on podcasting platforms. Please download part two.

Why Are U.S. Covid Cases Falling? And Will the Trend Last?

"From the new york times. I'm michael barr. This is a daily on yesterday. show my colleague. Donald jean mcneil junior spoke with dr anthony. Vouching about the trump era of the coronavirus today with president biden inaugurated vaccine distribution well underway and multiple variants of the virus beginning to spread an updated from donald on the state of the pandemic wednesday january. Twenty seven so. I want to start by thanking you for interviewing dr fauci. You're not a bad host. I have to say you're pretty. You're pretty good host. It's it's just asking the question and then shutting up well. Not everyone is capable of death. And i wasn't certain you're capable. You cut out a lot of my long stories. That i would sort of wind up. We'll be after asking the question. So i appreciate that you also cut out some of my swearing appreciate that well again. A we really appreciate. Because your conversation with g did such a good job of establishing where we have been and what it was like to try to fight the virus under the previous administration. I wanna talk about where we are right now so described this moment in the pandemic for us what is happening right now. So we're seeing sharp declines in new cases. They're down by about thirty three percent from two and sixty thousand a day in early january to about hundred seventy thousand now. It's a big decline year decline by thursday big deal. We're seeing hospitalizations down by about ten percent and we're seeing deaths down by about ten percent. How do you explain that well. We've seen this before that we've seen cases rise and then drop. We saw that right over thanksgiving. We saw right over christmas. And now we're seeing it where it rose until january ninth and then began the drop now. Those might have been false. Starts in a way that thanksgiving a lot. More people got tested in order to get on airplanes for thanksgiving travel. And of course you pick some cases that way then. You saw the same thing at christmas. Christmas travel again then on january ninth. It started going down and you know january. February is not a time when americans go on holiday travel very much and so this might be the real thing. You've got a fairly steady level of testing but the number of positive cases in that study levels testing begins to go down as now going down pretty substantially and when you say the real thing donald. That's a very tantalizing concept. Does that mean that. Finally we've turned a corner in the pandemic. What what do you mean. When you say the real thing i mean. It's not an artifact of testing for holiday travel and then a lag right. They really are fewer cases each day in the united states. And we see that state to state literally every state except rhode island is seeing a decline in cases. So this looks like we really are seeing a turning point in the trajectory of the virus that the number of cases has gone up to a peak. And look like it's coming down. We've reached the point now. Where about a third of the country has been infected If you look at the total number of cases twenty million cases basically most epidemiological models now by by about four to get the number of real infections. We have in the country so roughly were between one hundred million cases one hundred ten million cases actual infections including the asymmetric ones which means that about a third of the country has been infected well and when you reach the point in any heard in population where about a third of it is infected. The virus doesn't stop but the virus begins to slow down because in any hard whether it's a bunch of horses and a corral or it's a bunch of people in a bar about a third of the our immune to the virus so the virus can't just ricochet through that crowd as fast as it did months ago when everybody was susceptible to it so behind his good news decline in the pandemic is the kind of awful reality that the coronavirus has run wild through the united states and infected a third of our population and rendered a third of our population essentially immune and some of them dead right when people were talking months ago about reaching her immunity. That was the argument. Do we hide people away to protect them or do we reach herd immunity by letting the virus wash through us. Just let her rip. Well it's been let rip and the consequences we've got about four hundred thousand dead so it's costly very costly so doll. This major decline in new cases in the united states it is coinciding with the emergence of multiple variants of the coronavirus. And i want you to catch us up on those various. What is the significance of them. How many are they how meaningfully different are they from each other. And how are they going to interact with this decline in new infections. Okay there is a british variant a south african variant of brazilian variant. Something called the california variant and we know different amounts about each one of these. We know the most about the british a little bit more about the south african less about the brazilian less about the american californian what the british one appears to be about fifty percent more transmissible than the standard very in the united states. Right meeting one and a half times as likely to infect somebody because it's got mutation on the spike protein and in the receptor binding domain of the spike protein. That makes it better able to attach to cells that same mutation is in the south african variant and in the brazilian variant. But they have additional mutations and those additional mutations make it look as though they might partially escape the vaccines and might partially escape the body's immune response which would mean you might in theory get infected with them again even if you've already had the virus before that sounds scary. It absolutely sounds scary. It's not total. I mean something can have a weaker response to a vaccine or a week response to the body but not be totally negated and so people shouldn't panic. I mean we think of the spike protein is looking like a spike or the tip of the spear grades drawn. When you see it but really. It's it's not. It's this long string of thirteen hundred amino acids that then folds and balls itself up into this giant wad of what looks like like a bundle of telephone wire and things like that and when anybody's attack they kind of work their way through this tangle of telephone wire and glommed onto bits of the protein and if you change the shape of the protein some of the antibodies may not be able to make their way through this jumble of telephone wire attach really normally attached to you. Get a weaker antibody. Response doesn't mean you're response is totally wiped out. It's as if you had you know no armor and now you've got armor with a bunch of holes in it will. Some arrows can get in and some areas. Can't you can still be killed but it may be harder so just to summarize the mutations in the brazilian and south african variant. They have created a shape of spike. That just makes it harder for these. Antibodies to find their way to where they're supposed to go to damage that spike and make it harder for the virus to infect us. Yes that is the prevailing theory as to what these mutations are doing that they are changing the way. The protein folds changes the ultimate shape of the protein. Once it's all balled up now. We know that all three of these variants are more contagious. The question is are the more leaf. There was a controversial statement made by prime minister. Boris johnson in england the other day senate the british variant might be a third more lethal. But that's based on very preliminary evidence and his scientists said they. Let's not say that clearly. That's spreading panic the other two variants if they are better able to escape vaccines or better able to escape. The counter attack from our immune systems might indeed be more lethal. Somewhat more lethal. But we don't know that yet. It's an assumption you make. We don't have the data to prove it and remember we're talking about sort of fractionally more lethal we're not talking about covid. Nineteen becoming the black death. We're talking about a slightly more dangerous virus and of course treatments are getting better and hospitalizations getting better. So hopefully we can overcome that So before we get to how these variants are going to complicate the question of treatment and vaccination in the us. I just want to return to these declines in new infections because it would seem like these more contagious variance will be jeopardizing. Those significant declines. That you just described that seems almost inevitable. It is inevitable it is what scientists are afraid of. They are afraid that if we don't vaccinate people fast enough that the british variant will spread and become the dominant very the. Cdc has already predicted that that will happen by march. And that means new infections will speed up and it's now becoming a race between vaccinating people and the spread of the variant of the fears of the variant spreads. Faster than the vaccine. Can you'll see cases begin to go up again towards another peak back. The daily is supported by. Td ameritrade there's no roi tm. I that's why. Td ameritrade created a learning experience.

I'm alexander young and i'm a producer on the daily when this pandemic reach the united states. We knew that we needed to hear from the experts. People like darby. Jim mcneil junior from the science desk. Who could give us this kind of scientific sobering. Look at what the pandemic would mean for us around that same time. I also went out just around the corner to my local grocery store and talk to the manager. He was panicked and sleep deprived literally trembling as i spoke to him and he told me about how this pandemic effect him and his customers at the new york times. We think it's really important to hear from this full spectrum of voices both the experts and from people who are going through what you're going through right now and we can't keep doing this kind of work without the support of new york times of scrubbers. So if you'd like to subscribe go to ny times dot com slash subscribe with only before the break you were describing the threat that these coronavirus variants poos to the decline in new infections and the threat that they pose to the vaccines we have developed for an earlier version of the coronavirus. Just how much less effective do we expect a pfizer or maternal vaccine to be against the brazilian or the south african variants. I don't think we know yet. Just exactly how less effective there was a scientist yesterday who said look these vaccines induce a super awesome amount of antibodies. In you and now they are reduced to merely an awesome level of antibodies. Hasso we still think these vaccines will probably work and remember. It's not just anti bodies that the vaccines inspire to work in your body. They also trigger the b. cells and the t. cells which part of the immune system and there are other things macrophages that come in and gobble up viruses and all sorts of things. There's a complex response In your immune system but the easiest thing the measures antibodies. But that's what we look at. Scientists assume based on what they know that the vaccines will still be pretty good nonetheless as we do with flu every year they are tweaking the vaccine to make it a little more perfectly targeted pfizer. Madonna have announced that they can do that to come up with sort of a booster shot. That could be added to the two shots. You get those vaccines That would mean a third shot for a person who is vaccinated and it would be specially reformulated to address one of these variants or multiple variants. Well yeah that's what it would mean. But that's in a perfect world where everybody's had their two shots already. You don third. We haven't we're not close to the perfect world yet so it's good that they're doing that work but it's also gonna take some weeks to actually make that vaccine than they have to brew it up and distribute it so the foot race that's going on right now between the vaccine and variance is going to be played out well before that third booster shot comes along. The battle is is on right now. Okay so in this foot race between the variance and the vaccine. How do we stop the spread of the variants. The united states has not been very good at stopping the spread of any variations of the coronavirus. Yeah it's too late to stop the spread of the british variant. It's in multiple states more than twenty. It's imperative to stop the spread of the south african and brazilian variants. And the way you do that is to block travel. From those countries and the biden administration has picked up and strengthened some of the stuff that the trump administration was doing. There is a is a will be soon a ban on travel from britain or south africa or brazil but they're also making an incorrect assumption that the trump administration did repeatedly which is that only banning citizens of those countries will stop the virus. When in fact the virus is doesn't care what passport you carry. It is perfectly happy to come here in an american knows as as in a foreign those if you like and so you have to do something also to stop the americans from carrying that virus into the country and you know the answer that many countries would have everybody from china to singapore new zealand would be quarantine those people maybe not for fourteen days but you know long enough to to give them maybe a couple of different kinds of tests to make sure they're actually negative right so what you're saying is right now. We're letting americans travel brazil and south africa back to the united states. Potentially the virus with them were not carefully monitoring their quarantine. The way countries like china have in other words. These travel bans are very porous in a sense kind of useless. Yeah and this has happened before. I mean you know in in two thousand and nine when the h one n one swine. Flu from mexico was a threat. There were some cases in southern california and texas where everybody thought. Oh it's coming over the border but it landed in new york city in. Twenty seven students from saint francis. High school in queens would all go to cancun on their spring break. And that's how the disease came to new york city. So i mean it's common it's just as common for disease to come back and returning americans as it is in foreigners so we should assume that the south african and brazilian variance will be with us. If if they already aren't with us we should assume that if we're not careful they will definitely be here and begin to spread. There's still time to contain this. We think but we have to move fast and we have to move aggressively I just wanna say for the record. This conversation started with good news. It did yeah. We're always caught in this bind our way so you started to hint at what president biden is up to and now that you have laid out the pretty challenging landscape that he is inheriting when it comes to the pandemic helped me understand what his approach is so far. No it's just been a few days and how much it's differing from. The trump administration. Well he's got scientists in charge of the response whom he is allowing speak or he has he has said that will be that way that tony found. She will now be allowed to say what's going on rather than having the president say what's going on and then tony thought you being forced to contradict him because an awkward buying it. You have rachelle walinsky. Who's an expert on infectious diseases. Running the cdc and rather than being silent she says there will be regular briefings from her or from her experts. All these are incredibly good signs. This is the way we used to be here. I mean during previous epidemics. The president would occasionally say things but mostly the head of the cdc sometimes the surgeon general sometimes found. She would get up there and tell the truth about what was happening. You know in the past there would be you know a television appearance by somebody. Maybe once every couple of weeks but they would be three or four telephone briefings a week full reporters with a lot of time to ask questions. And a lot of experts being encouraged. You know dan. why don't you take that one. Because that's your area of expertise person to be in charge of axa nation would be there on the phone call. Who whoever you listen to the experts. And that's what i hope is gonna happen this time. Maybe we'll we'll have a science based response which we did not have before. We had a panic based response. Let's scare the stock market based response that. Lets go away response so we. Hopefully this'll be taken seriously. We'll handing press conferences. Two scientists is one thing. I think the thing most americans wanna get a handle on is how much more efficiently. We'll vaccines be distributed and administered under this new presidency. That feels like where the rubber meets the road. And so far. President biden has articulated a set of goals not all that different in ambition from the trump administration in terms of about a million. Vaccinations a day. What do you make of that well. We have reached about one million doses in arms per day and they now hope to ramp that up. Maybe we can reach one and a half million a day pretty soon. That means assuring and keeping track of a steady supply of vaccines coming out of the factories and getting to the states. The states and cities will still be in charge of sticking the vaccine's into the arms. But you can help them do that a lot. You can give the money to train vaccinators and set up vaccination centers you can optimize the supply to those places and set up a database where everything can be reported so that we have a very clear idea at the end of each day. How many vaccines are on hand. And where they are other words this can be more centralized the by administration can do that given these variance and they're spread given the pretty messy situation with vaccine administration. So far. how optimistic are you that. The timelines that have been pretty firmly planted in people's heads in this country about when normalcy will return are actually plausible. We have mentioned them on the show in the past the notion was that by the end of the summer things might look a lot like they used to look. And i'm starting to have my doubts about that time. how about you. I don't subscribe to by the end of the summer. Exactly i have. I've tried to resist predicting the future all along. I'm ultimately optimistic that sometime this year things will be back to normal. But i can't say when and and every time i said that i always said you know if things roll out exactly as hope if multiple vaccines are approved if nothing goes wrong in the production process if you know assuming people are going to accept the vaccines more than we talked last year. It's going to happen sometime. But i don't wanna say june fifteenth or whatever i i it's up in the air if we speed up it'll come vaccination. It'll come sooner if the virus changes radically. We'll have new problems. And it's because i just going to be a battle speed up the vaccination try to stop the variance the bad variance and spreading in this country. Do as much as we can to outrace the british very which is already in the country and hope that no new truly dangerous american spring up. There's always that possibility too so i have to ask. Have you gotten your vaccine though. No i'm i'm trying. I didn't try as hard in the beginning as i should have. And i sort of missed the boat. I have called some of the hotlines multiple times. I've even had a call back and after giving all the information was told. Oh i'm sorry. There's no more points and i'm seriously my back to square one. I'm sorry sir. I'd like to see my granddaughter. I'd like to be vaccinated Now my heard is currently thirty. Seven point five percent. Immune and i can explain how i got there. So i'm with my girlfriend. She works volunteers. Part time in a hospital patients so she got vaccinated. One dose we hang out in our pod with a couple will call them. Fred and ethel. fred is having cancer treatment and so his on college got him a job and ethel was able to get through the hotline at javits center. So they've all had one of two shots so that's seventy five percent of of our pod is half vaccinated so that's thirty seven and a half percent protection. I'm the zero inside the heard. I'm the i'm the goat and the buffalo her. If you like but you know i'm getting closer and and what i can find the vaccine and i get to wait a couple of weeks till till the antibodies kick in. Then i'll see my granddaughter but for now you're the skunk at the picnic picnic that the buffalo herd whatever. Well i wish you the best of luck as you work. The phones and navigate pretty tricky system. Thanks legitimate how it goes. Please do thank you dial appreciate it. Okay michael the first confirmed use case of the brazilian variant has been detected in minnesota local health officials said that the case involved a us resident.

Which means angel fish could be nearby they are. I can feel them. They're brilliant energy. Is something only another artist consent. Begging i wouldn't leave on that wall like that. The paint's still wet. It's my way of connecting with the artist and drawing out their energy again sort of ruined the mirror. Guess he's a good thing that age officials never shown their ideally. Not for any reason ever casper the flash fish i spent days on. That minister pays. No i didn't ruin. i'd just added my contribution to the peace artiste artiste. Angels dish doesn't work Art angels is a alone. Anonymous scattering wisdom in the form of all over the ocean.

Never though i mean someone must know your identity. Nope not even. My mother knows what i do. I've always been able to keep my identity completely anonymous. Well okay. There was this one pop radzi who managed to follow me into a sunken tried to snap a picture of me while i was grabbing a coffee. Oh yes i remember that headline news angel fish citing famous artist sells out for cup of sunken coffee. It was just like i never went back again and ended up moving across the ocean just to throw everyone off. My said didn't stay under the radar.

Crt angel fish. You can't quit if you quit than who's going to be my ticket into the sea artist industry yes. I can't quit by anonymity everything to me not privacy but for the health of my heart. My last non anonymous exhibition was so void of emotion. And inspiration that. I was laughed out of the gallery. Have been making independent poignancy art anonymously. That doesn't need a gallery or museum to let it move you. Wow i didn't realize how much public cr could mean to see creatures intention to create art with your identity attached exactly then people just get so obsessed with making celebrity out of artists these days. That's a bad thing. Not necessarily. But i don't want to be a celebrity. I don't want people to know it's me because then they're going to stop thinking about the art in front of them and more about and how often the bee's really i want anyone who sees it to ask how they fit into the peace. If i can't have that then what's the point of making art. What's the point of making art point. All the points are points and reasons to do it because even just the act of creating art is a positive force of good for anyone around it whether it's acting or singing or the art of thank you or funny yet. Poignant cr what are you know about funny yet. Poignant cer shirt. I may not know a lot about see art specifically but i know a lot about pressure and making mistakes. When you're trying to share something with the world go on bad art happens just does but that's okay. Sometimes the point of making something is not the end result but the experience itself. Yeah i hear that. That's always been my favorite part of what i do. When it's just me in the zone lying a scrapie take me wherever wants to go. Yes just because that curtain might get pulled back. Doesn't mean you have to change what you are doing to accommodate the people. You're now aware a watching you. Wow sorry i'm feeling a lot of feelings right now. Then when you do the people watching now expect something and let them expect something and do something different or do whatever you want. You know what's important to you. And what you want to say. Trust that and prestige talent and i think you'll be just fine. Sorry i'm not crying speech. I was just looking at the balloon jellyfish again. I did play the character of mom once in a local car dealership commercial. And i think i really developed some wisdom. We make very different types of art. Oh definitely well thank you Meghan right everything you said makes so much sense. And i think i'm ready to maybe try putting my face out there again and let people know the cr is mine. That's what i'd like to hear and no problem. I love talking artistes artiste. So you're existential. Crisis seems to be pre wrapped up. Can i just ask one question. Angel fish if i may call you angel fish. My real name is jennifer. call me. Jennifer jennifer would you work to join us for a little bit of our art story of that okay listeners.

Midterms are over. What happens now?

Marketplace with Kai Ryssdal

25:18 min | 3 years ago

Midterms are over. What happens now?

"Number one on the election. Call it a relief rally number two on the other political news call that priced in. And then number three, you know, the whole rest of the global economy coming up from American public media. This is marketplace. In Los Angeles. I'm Carl resolve Wednesday today. The seventh of November good as always to have you long. Everybody a quick nod here to the market reaction to last night's elections as we get going relief rally as I said relief amongst traders and their algorithms that what they got was pretty much what they expected also enough or nothing markets. Don't really historically have a problem with divided government. But with last night's results do come some economic big picture things that make you go. So we convince marketplace's Kimberly Adams to stick around after a long night and then along morning of covering the midterms and the results hi KAI solich with the with the stipulation here that the economy is doing really well. And that was at least somewhat of a factor for a lot of voters last night. Democrats did win the house. Now, what do we do economic policy wise with them in control the house is not much? They can do on their own to be put perfectly blinds about it. I mean, look, yes, they have the house, but the Republicans still. Control the Senate by now a wider majority and President Trump is still President Trump. And so if we go back to our schoolhouse rock days, you need all three of those pieces in order to pass legislation into laws so what they can do. Instead is they can potentially pass bills on policies that maybe lay down the framework for what they would do if they were in power which could sort of lay down in economic marker in case there running again in twenty twenty year, but hang on a second right because a lot of things Democrats want to do. And and also, you know, the president and Republicans is going to cost money. And and I'm obliged here to mention the record-setting deficit, we've got a national debt at I think twenty one trillion dollars now so real money that that somehow has to be accounted for right? And the Democrats like to talk about expanding social safety net and providing extra programs as you said those programs cost money in many ways. It's like, congratulations. Democrats you just one, but you have. No money to spend. And it's always popular for the party. That is not in power to raise the alarm about are rising debt are increasing deficits. And then as soon as they are in power, and this is the case for both parties. Once they're in power, all the sudden that's not so important anymore. C exhibit a tax cuts and jobs, and it will be interesting to see what Republicans do given the tax cuts and jobs act and also the deficit spending that they are piling on with with all kinds of other things we've got some deadlines coming up at the end of the year the continuing resolution that is funding the government runs out. And so there's probably going to be a fight over border wall funding. And now the Democrats have a little bit less incentive to play along. Because they know they're going to take over the house in January and then come March there's going to be that debt ceiling slash limit. That's going to either have to be extended or increased or something or let's get back to speaker Pelosi soon to be speaker Pelosi assume for minute here and some of the things that she. I may actually or has actually said she wants to do, you know, it's interesting a lot of the policy proposals. That Nancy Pelosi says that Democrats would pursue once they come to power in January oddly enough don't cost any money because who wants to come in and add to the deficit. So they're talking about things like campaign finance reform like controlling the cost of prescription drugs and oversight of the Trump administration. These are things that would make really nice talking points, but don't necessarily add to the deficit. So spit ball this form just on the way out we have had a change in one house of congress, but there are real fiscal and policy limitations on anything. That's going to happen. This is true. But there's debate over how much that matters because as we talked about a marketplace before honestly as long as the rest of the world keeps buying our bonds. We can technically spend as much as we want to there's a real conversation. That's going to eventually have to happen in America of how much of our budget. Are we comfortable spending? On the debt interest on the debt, which pretty soon is on track to outpace spending on things like education or the military. And these are just decisions that we have to make a country to really Adams in Washington for us on this day after thanksgiving, really, no problem hard decisions too. By the way, are decide for the Democrats in the house. One of the big winners in last night's election was healthcare Medicaid expansion to be precise government sponsored health insurance for low income Americans states have the choice you might remember under ObamaCare to cover more people with Medicaid, some Seitz did a lot of conservative states didn't. But last night voters in Idaho. Nebraska, and Utah red states all chose to expanded and Medicaid expansion. Friendly governors one in Wisconsin, Kansas and Maine. Marketplace's replenish your explains what all that might mean for the American healthcare economy. If all goes planned around three hundred thousand people could get health insurance in Idaho, Nebraska, and Utah, tectonic shifts in politics of health care in this country. Jonathan schlieffer is. Executive director of the fairness project the advocacy group that spearheaded the bout initiatives two years ago, don't from one these states by huge margins while promising to repeal before care last night loaders overwhelmingly voted to expand the ACA slicer says attempts to get Medicaid expansion in these states by going through the legislatures didn't work so his organization used ballot initiatives to put the question directly to voters. Diane Roland is executive vice president of the Kaiser family foundation a healthcare policy. Nonprofit people have a very favorable opinion of Medicaid, and that's why when voters are asked whether they want to expand even in some of the deeper red states, they elect to do so but ballot initiatives don't guarantee that Medicaid will actually be expanded in any hurry. I think we've got to be a little cautious. Matthew, Butte gins is a senior fellow at the urban institute even have that referendum. You need the commitment of the executive and legislative ranch in order to make. Reality in Kansas and Maine governors were able to veto or otherwise hold up attempts by legislatures voters to expand Medicaid, those governors have now been replaced by politicians who are in favor of expansion. The fairness project says it's assessing which states to target for expanding Medicaid in twenty twenty in New York. I'm Sabrina sure for marketplace. All right. So about the market reaction to the other story of the day the forced resignation of attorney general Jeff Sessions the phrase once again is priced in. Traders knew it was coming were not surprised, and in fact, sent the major indices higher after the news broke. We'll have the details when we do the numbers. We're gonna mix a little politics into our trade policy right now as we have been telling you, low these many months, one of the things that country's President Trump has tariffs on have done is try to target their counter tariffs on products in places that would hurt the president and his allies and supporters politically. So how'd that go? Marketplace's Tracey Samuelson has been looking into that one age eighty hey. Hey, so tarp straight midterms big deal. Not so much out. Yeah. Well, you know, looking at yesterday's results at exit polling at polling that we did before the election. It just it doesn't really seem like tariffs were particularly motivating factor for people on these elections. We've heard for months and months about from various farmers and companies about how much these tariffs are hurting their business, but at least from early analysis of Mathies midterms, it seems like healthcare and immigration other economic issues might have drowned out trade when people were in the voting booth deciding who to vote for I talked to a couple of farmers for the election, and they said, you know, were hurting, but we're also going to be patient. We're hoping that this is, you know, short term hit that's going to pay off for us in the longer run. Give me some for instance, give me some examples. Okay. So we saw democrat Heidi Heitkamp. She lost. Her Senate seat to a Republican yesterday. She's been critical of Trump and his tariff policy calling out the impact of tariffs on her state. Same for democrat Claire mccaskill of Missouri. She was also unseated by Republican Republicans picked up a Senate seat in Indiana. Where trade was mentioned in TV ads more than any other race. According to Kantar media, which tracks this sort of thing on the other hand Democrats picked up to house seats in Iowa Iowa big export of soybeans and port which have been hit by tariffs. And so far ings -iety about trade might have had something to do with that in general, though, the state's most impacted by tariffs, according to the chamber of commerce, Texas, Alabama, South Carolina, those are reliably red states. They stay at red even though Democrats picked up two house seats in Texas and one in South Carolina. So give me the takeaway, we've been spinning our wheels. Here you got thirty seconds. What does all this mean? Voters weren't sending Trump particularly loud or unified message on trade. And so it's it's unlikely that Trump will moderate has stance on trade. We can expect him to move forward with tariffs that are in place already potentially add more if tens of talks with China, don't go the way that he wants right? And the next raunch the next of those China tariffs, increasing Jenner the first twenty five percent yet from ten to twenty five percent, tracers Samuelson has always and ever on the trade beat New York. Thanks, tracy. Thanks guide. As we told you on Monday, we had filed a freedom of information act request to find out how ready the Commerce Department was for the president's original tariffs on steel aluminum. Specifically we wanted to know what preparations the government had made to deal with what turned out to be more than forty nine thousand requests from American companies for exemptions from those tariffs that is requests not to have to pay them. We've called Ronnie Smith McMahon steel company, there still distributor down in Texas Houston way to see what it's been like on the receiving end of tariffs. Smith. Welcome to the program, sir. Thank you very much to be here. First of all you've been dealing with these tariffs now for what six eight months has been. Well, it's it's been an experience. It's to be honest with you. It's it's been a little bit on the frustrating side house show. Well, you know to begin with there, you know, there was no information about you know, how they wanted to done or how the process would be determined in terms of you know, what would be accepted, what would be rejected. So we kinda shooting in the dark working with law attorneys and trying to understand the best way to follow these exemptions. And you know, it's kind of evolved. I guess to to where it is today. We sent you some of those documents that we got from our freedom of information act request. You had a chance to look at them. What's your sense of how prepared the Commerce Department was to deal with what seems to be like pretty technical metallurgical in an harmonized tariff, schedule stuff? Well, my sense is that you know, in in a guy's been doing this for over thirty years. And you know, I still don't know everything obviously metallurgy the metals markets metals harmonize tariff codes and things like that. It's hard to envision that. Somebody would be able to gain enough knowledge from PowerPoint presentation to make these kind of determinations we asked commerce about the average time it tastes review. One of these requests, they said, you know, plus or minus three to four months with those that have objections to them like a lot of yours head. It's going to be more than four months. What does that mean? Do you in a business sense? Just hanging around for four months, in some cases. It means that we lose business in some cases, our customers are literally moving their manufacturing offshore. We've already lost business while we're waiting on our refiling of our exemptions. We've filed some earlier exemptions that were objected to supposedly an error by some of the domestic steel companies and we've gone back and refile them. And if anybody objects, again, it's another four months, and in the meantime, we lose business have you been able to to pass on any of the cost of the terraces slightly sideways. But have you been able to pass on any of the cost of the chairs or you eat number? What are you doing? We've probably passed on fifty to seventy five percent of the costs with some limited success. And we have basically eaten the the difference. In terms of what our margins are now less things are gonna let you go. I'm gonna mix a little politics in here tariffs, of course, have been all over our air. Because it's it's a huge economic story in the national conversation though, perhaps not. Quite as much as Tracey Samuelson was just telling us, what was the sense down in Houston, where you are of how much tears your plan into politics. Well, in Houston, you know, this is, you know, pretty strong Trump country down here. So, you know, I have heard some formerly pretty staunch Trumpers supporters, not very happy with tariffs at all. And others have said, you know, well, maybe we should do whatever it has to do to to get a fair shake where international trade is concerned running. Smith is vice president of operations McMahon steel in Houston, Texas, Smith extra time. So I appreciate it. Thank you. We put a bunch of the Commerce Department documents. We got from that foia request online. They're pretty interesting actually trust me on that one. Check him out. Marketplace dot org. Coming up the whole continuum of life going on inside of the four walls. But at least one hospital company is trying to break down those four walls. First though, let's do the numbers. Dow is up five forty five today tuna tenth percent closed at twenty six thousand one eighty the NASDAQ up one hundred ninety four points two point six percent. Seventy five seventy the S and P five hundred increased fifty points to a tenth percent twenty eight thirteen with healthcare topping voter concerns as we said, some states moving you expand Medicaid coverage. If you the companies across the healthcare sector about many, tell care company United health group shot up four point two percent today. Health insurance Cigna delivered to and eight tenths of one percent. President Trump mentioned infrastructure today in a press conference is an area where he and Democrats might find common ground. So in the world of companies that build stuff KB, our construction engineering firm lifted three and nine tenths percent today. Jacobs engineering group up one point seven percent. You're listening to marketplace. This is marketplace, I'm KAI Ryssdal. There is although you wouldn't necessarily know it unless you look the bunch of non election news today. I want on that list for us is what's called an emergency airworthiness directive from the Federal Aviation Administration about the new Boeing seven thirty-seven max airplane, the brand new model the crashed in Indonesia at the end of October killing one hundred and eighty nine people. The warning was about an equipment defected could in layman's terms crashed the plane United American South west Air, Canada, a bunch of others. Fly the seven thirty seven max. Marketplace Emma Jacobs looked into what this morning good mean to them and to their passengers investigators in Indonesia have not definitively determined what caused the lion air seven thirty seven to crash, but they have determined the plane had a faulty sensor measuring what's called the angle of attack. That's the angle of the wings relative to the air planes. Computer uses information from that sensor to make automatic adjustments to keep the plane's nose from going to high. If that information is wrong the play. In over corrects and pointed to nose downward Ross Amer is a licensed pilot and CEO of aero consulting experts. He says at that point a human pilot can take over car, you can override that. If you need to for some reason, these fellows, or they couldn't Boeing is warning pilots to be alert until more is known about the Indonesia crash. Herro rounder is CEO of the aviation safety network much. More investigation is needed to explain why is good. And if it just a one off occurrence on that particular aircraft or it could be widespread the seven thirty seven max has proved popular for Boeing the manufacturers feeling orders for forty five hundred just over two hundred are already flying. If there's a software or hardware fix needed. Boeing is on the hook for the repairs, but airlines don't need to fly the planes back to the dealer like a car that's been recalled Boeing we'll. Those repairs at airports between flights. I'm Jacobs for marketplace. Let them two on our list of news, not being covered is of the government debt variety. A judge has approved the restructuring deal to address some of Puerto Rico's massive debt, it sits at least seventy two billion dollars all in this particular deal only dresses four billion dollars of that debt. But it could stressing could clear away out of years of loan defaults and fiscal insolvency for the island and US Commonwealth. Marketplace's into Euler his on that one Puerto Rico is not a state. So it can't file for bankruptcy. This consensual debt. Restructuring agreement is just a deal that was worked out between Puerto Rico, government development, Bank and hedge funds local credit unions and other creditors. Kate long founder of Puerto Rico clearinghouse at debt research firms as this is a really important first step partition, very complex practice into individual teacher that can be resolved via their competing noy rounded long says four billion out of seventy two is an ally. Lot. It's under five percent. But she says because this agreement restructures the government development Bank, which oversaw the islands debt transactions Puerto Ricans. We'll directly see the benefit of the steel fair were many Puerto Rican saying had exposure, junior credit union service get deal insurance. They will get it on their only getting up eighty five percent recovery. But that certainly did zero Jose via Quinto is an economist at the university of Puerto Rico. He says those rebuilding the island after hurricane Maria have recovery money. They're paying taxes in Puerto Rico that's revenue the government can use to start repaying the debt, but he's worried about what happens when that money dries up and says, these agreements need to be sustainable without that we're not going to see an economic recovery for many years he says without real economic growth beyond hurricane recovery. The cycle of debt on the island is bound to continue. I mean dealer for marketplace. We're talking about Medicaid expansion up at the top of the program. A lot of people voted healthcare last night as their main issue. This is also open enrollment season under both the Affordable Care Act and a lot of private health insurance programs, which means it's a busy time of year at Kaiser Permanente one of the biggest healthcare providers and hospital networks in this country the past decade, or so has also just been overall an interesting moment in healthcare Bernard Tyson is the chairman and CEO of Kaiser Permanente miss Tyson. Thanks for coming into the studio, sir. Thank you. Do. I have it. Right. That you wanted to work in hospitals, like not necessarily as a doctor but work in hospital since you were a kid. Yes. Actually, I wanted to be a dodger. Yeah. Why why what is it about hospitals that that is attractive to you the whole mission of what a hospital does. It's there to take your people in need. And I think the thing that fascinates me still about hospitals that you have the whole continuum of life going on inside of the four walls of a hospital. Given where we are today with healthcare in the national debate Howard, are you the people don't understand the healthcare Konami in this country. I think people are learning more about it as the burden of the high cost of care is passed on to people and the two parts of the affordability that I think about all the time the affordability of coverage and the affordability of care help me out then because what what's the difference? Well, you think about the affordability? Oh covers a lot of that has to do with how much of the costs you shift to different funders. Right. So which maze that I'm my find something that I can pay that's less expensive for the coverage. But then when I need care. And now the sudden discover what it means to have a five thousand dollar deductible. Then I can't afford to get the care is a lot of stuff that goes into the calculus. Action of health care. Call d think it's solvable. This dilemma of coverage and care and cost. Absolutely. Do you really have? So have you called people in Washington kit's? I think anyone who's really been thinking about this. A lot would come in and say, no, they're more things that we can do to create more efficiencies and effectiveness in the healthcare industry. There are many people working on that. I mean, obviously Permanente has been working on it for years. I wanna get to Kaiser and what you're doing in a minute. But I do have to ask a follow up question to that. Then which is why isn't it? Being done. Why isn't it changing? Is he Volve it? I mean, it you still have the center gravity of healthcare. Still the hospital. Seti? I think as more people are paying out of pocket, they're asking the harder questions of the industry. What all the turn. It is why am I taking this? How else can I get what I need and rightfully so they're asking the right questions to Kaiser permanent day then. And and what y'all are doing your data guy from way way back for Shelvin hospital was data analyst cousin permitted. Does. A lot of really localized covered. You look at it by zip code, you have special project going to lot of cities one of which is Baltimore I want you to tell me how Kaiser permanent as doing in both more with barber shops and beauty salons. You know, we don't just think about when you get sick. We're here for you. We think what are the determinants of your health that we can predict now based on many factors. One of which is where you live. We also now have data that shows in populations different health outcomes. High blood pressure heart disease, asthma all these kinds of illnesses. And so we have gone into barber shops and churches and the trusted environment to promote health because you have to convince folks that they need to be men. That's the deal. This is not a boring time to be in healthcare in this economy knows there's a crystal ball question to be asked. But but that would be almost too complicated. But but the question is what is the trajectory of your industry the hospital based healthcare industry in this economy? Are we going to see lower costs that you've been talking about? Are we going to see people being able to get more care as they ask these questions that you and I've talked about you going to continue to see the healthcare industry. Volve? You're going to continue to see the hospitals plan a critical role. Not the central role that good thing. Absolutely. Because it's all about the right here in the right setting. Tyson, the chairman and CEO of Kaiser permanent most Tyson. Thanks coming into appreciate. As miss Chechen said data is used for a whole lot of things in healthcare. And where you live can determine how long you live. So we took a look at the places with the highest and lowest life expectancies in this country. It's online at marketplace that on. This final note on the way out today. Dateline San Francisco, California voters there approved proposition see last night attacks on the city's biggest businesses to fund homeless services. Mark many off. So you have Salesforce was on the yes side, Jack Dorsey of Twitter and square was opposed. It is gonna wind up in court chances are but still interesting, right? All right. We gotta go down up five hundred fifty four points today tuna tenth percent, NASDAQ up one ninety four two point six percent on this day after the election as p five hundred increased fifty eight points. That's two point one percent there as well. Sarah gear, Jake Gorski, drew justed, Jeff Peters, Dan Powell, Daniel Ramirez, Charlton Thorpe, and Ben tolliday engineered the program for us. I'm KAI Ryssdal. We will see tomorrow. This is APN.

Assessing Bidens Climate Plan

Assessing Bidens Climate Plan

"From the new york times. I'm michael borrow. This is a daily today in the first days of his presidency. Joe biden has ordered that the us rejoin the paris climate agreement abandoned the keystone oil pipeline and and energy exploration on federal lands. But the real work of reducing america's biggest sources of emissions has just begun my colleague coral davenport assesses biden's long term plan to combat climate change. It's tuesday february second coral davenport. Michael barbaro well cove in. Is this your. Is this your work from home setup. You could give a nice little look there. It's pretty good. Yeah my husband gets the basement. So he gets more privacy but It's all right so you have the sunlight and he has. He has a door. I really making time for us. Of course this is a policy discussion ultimately about joe biden's climate plan but just to start. I wonder if you can conjure the biden climate agenda as a kind of vision. That people will experience themselves. Let's say it's twenty thirty five and everything that this new administration wants to get done on. Climate has actually gotten done. What is life look like. Okay given that. That's a big if if everything really gets done then here's what life would look like. You would wake up in your home as american. Turn on your lights. Turn on your coffee maker. You make your breakfast and all of your electricity would now be coming from wind. Solar none of it would becoming none of it from coal. Natural gas fossil fuels. And if you were to follow those electric wires to the power plant where they came from it would look nothing like the electric power plant that you grew up within the twentieth century would look like a gigantic battery that was not admitting anything that was sucking in wind and solar power that was generated from mountain or sunny deserts hundreds or thousands of miles away coming into that big battery storing there and coming into your house so basically the way the lights turn on will be completely different and then you would get into your car. Which if the biden visions implemented would almost assuredly not be powered by combustion. Engine it would be an electric car. But it wouldn't be a fancy tesla or prius. Ideally it would be something you know big enough that you can put your family in and go for weekend camping trips and haul stuff around and take your kid to college. It would be a big regular american car. Probably made by gm or ford and you would drive to work. Perhaps you realize oh no. I'm not charged up and you pull over plug in. You would charge it in the same amount of time that it wants you to pump the gas and maybe there would be these new charging stations where you would go in and you buy your doritos and your newspaper if you know. I hope to god newspapers. We'll still be around. Who knows navy a hell of a different warning that you have described than what i think. Most of us have experienced in the past it is. And here's the other thing. That would be profoundly different and this is really important because this is the reason why they're doing all that it's not to promote electric cars. It's not to promote wind and solar the other thing that would be different. Is that maybe. Your basement wouldn't be flooding because of stronger storms in rising sea levels if you live in the west. Maybe you're not looking out the window at thick black skies as another record wildfire sweeps through the mountains near neighborhood. Maybe you're not paying two and three and four times as much for your food. Because we're having extreme droughts that are hurting our agriculture sector and making it harder to get crops those are the impacts of climate change of more fossil fuels in the atmosphere that scientists saying is also going to be coming down the pike in ten or fifteen years if these policies aren't put in place so those are changes that if the fossil fuel emissions really are stopped. You won't be experiencing those right and of course. This is very different vision than put forth by the previous president yes. President trump openly mocked the science of human caused. Climate change withdrew the united states from the international paris agreement. Which is the the global accord in which pretty much every country in the world said that they would act to reduce their carbon emissions and rolled back over a hundred federal environmental protections during his four years in office biden is essentially doing sharp u-turn from that and the goals that he is setting are incredibly aggressive and i should say it's not just returned from trump. He's going way. Further than obama tried to go so biden's objectives are to eliminate all co two from the us economy by twenty fifty that has been incredibly aggressive goal and then the other goal that he has said is zero emissions from the electricity sector from power plants by twenty thirty five fifteen years from now that is saying fifteen years from now we will no longer see fossil fuel fired power plants in the us again. That is an incredibly ambitious goal. It is also exactly in line with what scientists say is required to avoid the most devastating effects of planet and i should say not to avoid the impacts of global warming. Those have very clearly already started. And they're here to stay and they're going to get worse. This is talking about keeping the planet safe for people to live in at all. And who has president biden put in charge of trying to turn this very aggressive vision into reality. Who has he put in place. So president biden has done something new. Here he is created kind of double pronged white house. Climate czar position. He is tapped to sort of superstars of the climate policy world. To do it in one position you have. John kerry who of course was the secretary of state in the obama administration. He was basically the central negotiator of two thousand fifteen paris climate change agreement. That is the role that he will play. For president biden he will be kind of an international climate on roy whose job is to go around the world say look the us is acting cutting emissions. We're working hard. You guys have to do it too. Here's how we have to do this. Together he will also and this is very important. He will have a seat at the white house national security council. That's new. that's never happened. What that means. Is that climate. Change will now be an integral part of every major white house decision on national security and foreign policy. It will have a seat at the big boys and girls table. And john kerry. Who is a serious player and in many ways has more policy chops. A lot of the other people at that table will be the ones speaking for climate change. So i think that's a big deal. The other piece of that john kerry's partner the domestic climate. Czar will be gina mccarthy. She was the head of the environmental protection agency in the obama administration and she actually was the author of the epa regulations to cut co two emissions from all the biggest economic sectors gina. Mccarthy will now be in charge of basically making sure that her legacy gets put back and strengthen this time she won't just be head of the epa. she'll be in the white house and she will have the authority to deliver these domestic policies to hand over to john carey so he can go around the world and say look. This is what we're doing. We're serious we're getting it done. You've got to do it too okay. So now that we've met these climates ours. We'll talk about how they are going to be putting this agenda into place. Sure so you know likes to talk about the whole of government approach to climate change and all the different agencies are going to do really at the end of the day though. It comes down to three things. There are three main sources of planet greenhouse gases in the us economy. Three pieces of that pie. And if you want to solve the problem you have to drastically cut. Each one of these and that is pollution from cars as a number one contributor to greenhouse gases in the us. It's a little over a third number two pollution from power plants. How we turn on the lights and number three weird but it's a big deal is leaking methane emissions from oil and gas wells that sound sort of obscure. And here's the reason. Why methane is like a superpower supercharge. co two. It has over fifteen times the heat trapping power of carbon dioxide. And if you get it that you've actually taken really big bite of the greenhouse gases the utah gases that are coming from the us economy. Those are the three things if the us federal government can put in place policies that can drastically cut those three emissions. That's the solution. That's how we cut our emissions and receives goals and there's a lot of other stuff. That sounds really nice and that will help. But if you don't do those you won't get there okay. So let's talk about these one at a time. Cars power plants methane leaks and how the biden agenda will address all of them. And let's start with cars. What is the biden agenda on cars so to talk about the by gender in so many ways and i think biden probably doesn't love this but you have to. I talk a little bit about the obama agenda. So obama put in place an incredibly aggressive regulation to drastically cut fossil fuel emissions from cars. He put in place fuel economy standards. That would have required automakers to build and sell cars that reach an average of fifty four miles per gallon by two thousand twenty five. That is a very aggressive goal. And basically once they put that in place it meant that every automaker who wants to in the us had to immediately start investing in building and selling electric vehicles though as the vision and then the trump administration came in and as soon as trump was elected the ceo of gm went and met with trump in the oval office and said hey. Can you all these back for us. Which they did so. The biden plan is essentially to put that back in place. The numbers might not be exactly the same one. Difference is that regulation was put in place ten years ago. It applies in cars in two thousand twenty five. They're going to have to go out a lot further than that. The timing is different. The economy's different one really big thing that is very different for the biden administration as it prepares to reimpose these tough tough fuel. Economy standards for cars is the auto industry the auto industry tooth and nail against against the obama administration putting those rules in place. But what has happened now and actually in the news of last week is that same ceo of gm. Mary barra announced. The gm is now getting ready to do a total u-turn go to one hundred percent electric vehicles and even stop producing combustion engines this huge huge tailwind for the biden administration and several other auto companies are also on board are kind of expected to publicly. Come out in the next week or so saying we will do this. And that's partly because the global auto market has transformed so much in the last decade. This is where the market is going. Other countries now have standards like this and plays. The automakers have to sell to a global market. So the difference is that this time when when biden goes to put those car rules in place he will actually have all the auto companies at the table with him working. Prepare to sign onto something from day. One So interestingly the auto industry is on board with this vision and the one you described at the start of our conversation that includes electric cars and cars are the biggest source of emission and therefore the biggest obstacle to starting to lower the biggest source of emissions which would be car companies saying no way that has started to melt away. Yes this is a really big deal. I think that that will probably stand is the biggest thing that the biden administration will end up doing on climate. Change right back in twenty twenty one.

So let's talk about the second major source of emissions that you had mentioned power plants. What is the biden plan for. Those they don't know with powerplants. It gets really murky. And here's why. Obama tried to do regulations on power plants. He did all big regulation that required states to shut down. Coal plants build wind and solar. That was going to be it even before it. The legal fight got to the supreme court. The supreme court justice justice roberts put his stay on that plan which essentially meant this plan does not get implemented until all of these lawsuits about it get legally resolved that is a very clear sign that the supreme court thinks it's a loser and so it was never implemented and so now it's kind of stuck in the courts but as the biden administration goes back and tries to do this again and they know that already. The legal outlook is not good and very importantly. This supreme court is even more conservative than the supreme court during the obama administration. So if you can't do with regulation well. Can you do it through congress. That is a very tough sell as well as you know. Democrats have a fifty one vote majority including the tie breaking vote of vice president. Harris need a sixty vote majority just to get anything onto the senate floor and if you were to bring a bill to congress that essentially said we're going to shut down coal plants and replace them with wind and solar. It's very hard to see how you even get all of the democrats to vote for that and the particular democrat. Who you'd be looking at. Is senator joe manchin from west virginia. A major coal state. Who's a huge opponent of the obama. Clean power plan and has supported. The trump rollbacks regulation. It's very hard to see how you get it. Simple democratic majority for some kind of legislation in congress that would shut down coal plants. So that one at this moment you know unless they can do some really amazing. Legal tap dancing in reproducing. This regulation or unless. There's some kind of very interesting breakthrough in congress. It is hard to see how this administration is able to meaningfully. Do a big policy. That takes a bite out of power plant emissions so the second largest source of emissions coal plants is kind of fly in the moment of the biden visionary. They don't really know exactly what to do about it. They're trying to figure it out but right now there is not a clear legal or legislative pass for them to put a policy in place and finally methane. What is the plan for that so once again just like cars and just like power plants. Obama put a rule in place saying companies have to inspect leaks. Plugged them up. Keep them under control. Trump rolled back when trump rolled back through. He actually said the federal government doesn't have to regulate nothing at all. Basically in this case. I think it's almost cut and paste the biden. People can go back in. Take that obama rule and put it back. It'll probably take a year to before it is implemented but the expectation is there's a pretty therapath to do it and it won't be too hard and the supreme court won't stand in the way of it. This is one where the law is pretty clear about giving the executive branch the authority to do this. The chances appear favorable before the supreme court. Even this very conservative supreme court. So that's one where they're moving ahead fairly confidently call if biden gets done. What he wants to get done on these three areas. What will be the economic cost of having done it specifically on jobs. I know that biden is very sensitive to that question and that of course is the leading objection from republicans and moderate democrats in some of these key states where for example there coal fire power plants and there is guests drilling and there is we'll exploration so biden as being very candid about this that aggressive environmental and climate policies will cost jobs. He has acknowledged that essentially what has planned. We'll do will ultimately end. The coal industry shrink the oil industry down to a fraction of its former size and that that necessarily cost jobs and hurt communities in being candid about that. He also says that he believes that the jobs created in wind and solar manufacturing in installation that there will be an equal or greater number of jobs created by these regulations. I should say. He's backed by economists in that economist. Do generally say that when you lose a certain number of jobs in fossil fuel or polluting industries you do tend to gain about an equal number of jobs in environmental mitigation and cleaner industries. The problem is how do you match those skills and people up. Can you necessarily take a coal miner. Who has lost his job in appalachia or wyoming and move him in has family to a solar plant manufacturing place in nevada. What biden is doing saying that. The government is here to help. We're going to have funding to go into these communities figure out how to retrain to figure out how to bring the manufacturing of the new technologies to the places where the jobs are going he is making a good faith effort to try to match those up. I think that's very hard challenge. It's not necessarily clear that it's always going to work. But the fact is that climate change it has already wreaked a significant economic cost on our economy as well biden and his appointees are trying to make the point that like you pay one way the other and we're already starting to pay. It feels like a lot of what we are talking about here. In the biden climate plan is restoring regulations from the obama administration that were reversed by the trump administration and by definition that means that once put in place they can be reversed by the next president. If that happens to be a republican because we talked about this a lot on the show in the last couple of days the only real permanents government comes from laws passed by congress. And like you said this is not seem to be a congress especially senate that is likely to pass sweeping environmental programs at the moment. So where does that really leave the by ministration. They know that so well particularly in this space of climate regulations. They've just watched exhibit a all rules in place. They all went away. They're putting the back. They had that at top of mind. And i think that what president biden would like more than anything else would indeed be any kind of permanent law and i think that what the rest of the world is really looking for from the. Us is any kind of permanent law. I mean john kerry is going to be going around the world saying oh look. We're going to do all these regulations. They're going to be like wait. A minute guys do a bunch of regulations and they went away like we need to see something from you that will stick and they they know that and they also know as you said that the goal is permanent legislation though the goal is a law. That will outlast democrats and republicans and not just administration but the lives of the president's and the legislators who enact them and right now it is not looking like that is the cards for climate change. Right which i'm sure is pretty depressing to john. Kerry and joe biden. So is the reality that we are going to be left with a kind of sweeping and impermanent biden climate change vision. Is that just where we are going to be. The answer to that is it. Depends i think if the next administration is republican. Certainly there'll be a powerful drive to deregulate and certainly these regulations that affect the fossil fuel economy will come under scrutiny absolutely but even under those republican administrations. I do think that there is likely to be moment because there has been this significant shift from some major corporations and here. I'm thinking very much of these. Big auto companies of gm and ford these big icon ick essential american manufacturers once. These regulations really are put in place and these companies have invested in the kinds of cars. They're going to build ten and fifteen years out as much as they don't like regulations. They hate even more the uncertainty. They don't want that whiplash. And i think in some cases some of these rules and i think the car rules are a good candidate for this once they get in place and the industry just gets fully on board and they get baked in the industry is not going to the white house and saying. Hey make these go away. That is something that could help. Keep them baked them. Other words. the permanence of vision may rest with industry as much as with government. Yes the reality is that climate change is here and it affects those industries to they see it and that would be less about altruism than also just about baking things in for the way in which climate change has changed economic reality for us in a completely new way.

That's one point nine trillion dollars but even before the meeting white house press secretary. Jen psaki warned the senators that the president was committed to a plan that would cost more than three times as much and biden may choose to push it through without republican support.

Why? Family. Every better reasons. By the way, Abby birthday Noah. Swelled today. Three story today. So. Knock quits deadly. I have lost my father of the year award that I've never won. You never made it this deep into February before. Anyway. That's right. Greetings, welcome to the place for family values. This is the place live and on demand.

Apparently, Stephen Steve day Stott com. As the Email address. You can like us on Facebook. Follow us on Twitter at Steve dais show for those of you listening on the podcast or on blaze radio today. Last name is spelled DA. We got a ton to get to including getting you updated on what happened while we were away. What happened while we were away brought to you by the best argument yet, we may be indeed living in purgatory. Well, I took my first yoga class today. Virginia Lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax faced another allegation of sexual misconduct. This time. He's being accused of rape by a classmate of his at Duke, the accuser says she's not seeking any reparations and claims she has multiple texts communication threads shortly after the events which proves her case what's off about the statement. From her lawyers, though is the accuser says she is discussed the alleged event, which she says happened in two thousand with friends on Facebook which hadn't even been invented yet. And who things continue to go well for Virginia democratic leadership this weekend? I know this has been a very difficult week for you in the state of Virginia. So where would you like to begin what has been a difficult week? And and you know, if you look at Virginia's history, we're now at the four hundred year anniversary just ninety miles from here in sixteen nineteen the first indentured servants from Africa landed on our shores and old point comfort. What we call now fort Monroe, and while also known as slavery. Yes. Yeah. It was pretty hard pretty challenging. But I kind of figured out. It's not about me versus the world. It's trying to get the most out of what I've got remember the state of the union North Korea under the leadership of kin young Woon will become a great economic powerhouse. He may surprise somebody won't surprise me. Because I have gotten to know him and fully understand how capable he is North Korea will become a different kind of rocket and economic one, and that's stay patient. Don't get frustrated, and I gotta continue today. Elizabeth Warren sometimes referred to by me as polka haunt joined the race for president. She will run as our first native American presidential candidate or as she decided that after thirty two years, this is not playing so well anymore see on the campaign trail. Liz, Trump marks warned with apparent reference to trail of tears which killed thousands. All oh, we haven't even talked about the green new deal yet, Alexandra. Oh, Cossio Cortez. Who has definitely just a fixation and obsession of the right wing media. Even though Netflix just signed a deal with her to produce documentary on her proposed legislation. She's been teasing ever since she got into office called the green new deal g put on her website, a helpful list of frequently asked questions contain their end where things like plan to gut and rebuild every building in America. Marquis, her Senate colleague, who's cosponsoring the Bill and Cortez went to quote, unquote, retrofit every building in America with state of the art energy efficiency, and quote eliminate air travel. The green new deal calls for building out quote high speed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary to which why Senator maisy Hirono remarked, how difficult that would make things for Hawaiians free money. The green new deal aims to provide. And we're not making this up economic security and quote for all who are quote unable or unwilling and quote. To work the legislation along with its many endorses became the laughing stock of last week and the frequently asked questions page are just referred to was quickly scrubbed from Cossio Cortez website. But not to worry, though, when you don't know the difference between any an Audi, and you're advocating aborting, all the things lying really isn't that much of a stretch ever pay people who are quote unwilling to work. I we we never would. Right. And he has never said anything like that. Right. I think you're referring to some sort of document that some I think some doctors document that somebody other than us has been circulating. Oh, I thought that came right from her that was in the background or from her office is my understanding. No. She's actually tweeted it out to laugh at it. If you look at her latest tweets, it seems apparently some Republicans have put it out there. I don't know. Then thank you for correcting me. I mean tickets. Dick, almost as ridiculous as the idea that we're going to build enough light rail to make airplanes necessary, which I think actually is from. Either Tucker, I actually believe that you're actually in our side about this. If you actually read the actual plan, right? There's nothing about getting minute anything. It's about expanding menu options. Right. I mean, there many many things we want to be able to do now. In addition to what we already do. So where's the airplane disappearance coming from? I'm not really clear on. I could actually get it for you. This is that'd be grave. Released by her office. And I'm quoting from he'd be this. Maybe this is fraudulent in which case. I hope you'll correct me. But it says that the green deal with I'm quoting totally overhaul trans pretension, and that would mean quote, building high speed rail to scale where air travel would stop becoming necessary who Senator Hawaii Hirono respond to that by saying that would be hard for Hawaii. So I don't think that's made up. This letter. Apparently being misunderstood right? We're really talking about expanding optionality here. We're not talking about getting rid of anything. Right. We're talking about basically making it cost effective to move into more modern forms of technology. Alexandria, Cossio Cortez accidentally released a document that supported paying Americans unwilling to work and conservatives attacked her for it Ilan. Omar is calling for the department of. Security. Can't make this stuff up. The El Paso zoo is promising to name a cockroach after your ex and feed it to their mere cats on Valentine's Day, they said it couldn't be done. But they did it. Did it change is really good? That keeps you young has you looking into the future. And finally the perfect metaphor of America in the twenty first century. What we're watching is a video of three men appearing to live in abject, two of the men are arguing with each other with great passion about an unknown subject while the third man is struggling in the background to wear sweatpants as a shirt. This goes on indefinitely with no sign of any resolution. God help us. And that's what happened while we were away. Still think that guy smarter than John casick? Montage is brought to you by our friends at relisted agents. I trust you thinking of buying or selling a home this year. Then you want to check out real estate agents. I trust a company Glenn Beck and his team started a few years ago because they were tired of real estate agents who talked to good game. But in the end couldn't figure out whether or not the sweatpants went below the waist on top of their heads and the good thing of realistic agents. I trust dot com is a lot of these referral services. Are about finding clients for the agents in this case. It's about empowering you the client to find the right agents, not foolproof nothing. This side of Eden is but it's a pretty good start to getting there. When someone says, hey, voluntarily want to be scrutinized voluntarily owning myself up for vetting as all the agents that are part of the network it real estate agents, I trust have done. So if you want to buy your sell your home for the right price this year, check out the website real estate agents. I trust dot com. That's real estate. Agents. I Trust ADT com. We're gonna talk more about what happened on Friday with the green energy deal dream, the reaction the lies. We're gonna talk more about that on the roundtable later today at the blaze because what you're watching is the truth is coming out. This is never really been about for most of these people. I'm sure there are some really committed. Climate people. But from a political standpoint this isn't about climate anymore than it's about racial Justice anymore than it's about social Justice. Again, there may be some committed people that really believe in those causes. But they are they're means to an end for a for the implementation of a broader vision. And we're gonna talk about that coming up today on the roundtable. Let's go to Virginia the story that seemingly will not go away. And I saw I saw some of this while I was in Dallas. And I corrected the record on this on Twitter. And I wanna do it now on a on a bigger platform here on the blaze. There are some similarities I in Aaron pointed these out in his one of his montages last week Lieutenant governor Fairfax hired the exact same defense firm that Brett cavenaugh higher. Correct. Meanwhile, miss Tyson who is original accuser has hired the same legal team that Christie plays Ford had. That's correct. All right. So I get that. It seems like we're doing the time warp here again. But I wanna make sure we don't let the Democrats off the hook with that. Because these cases aren't the same. They're not morally equivalent really at all. And let me explain why we went through seven F B I background checks. The the local police department there in Maryland investigated this on a couple of different occasions as well. And it was never even established that Brett Cavin on new Christie blazey Ford. It was never even established. They had any connection whatsoever. When I pointed this out on Twitter, the first reply I got from somebody was well, she has friends she had a friend who said that they knew each other. Well, if by that logic, I do show every day with Curt Schilling. Maybe the guy who next to Don Larsen in his perfect game pitched the most it's the most famous pitching performance maybe in World Series history. And he owns it. The bloody sock game is going to be in. He's going to be in Cooperstown. Three thousand case multiple World Series champion. He knows a heck of a lot of famous people. By that extension. Then I know them too because he knew them that's not that. This isn't a Kevin bacon game. We're not playing six degrees of separation. We're deciding whether or not to end somebody's life, essentially or not which by the way, if they're guilty of sexual assault. I'm totally fine. Doing to relate. I'm not talking about like just a shunning. I'm talking about room temperature ring. That's I mean, I think it's I think it's a capital offense is what I think sexual assault is. I'm totally fine with busting the vicious on sexual assault. But if we get into it, we need something other than I can't remember really anything let alone when it happened. And not even really sure where and I can't tell you how I got from the place where it occurred to my house. I can't tell you that either. And I don't know why never told my parents or anybody, I'm gonna need more. If we're gonna end somebody's life, which I'm fine with doing. If you have more totally fine with it. But she didn't have any corroborating evidence on any level whatsoever. It's not the same thing. In this case and not even we don't even bring in the second accuser yet. In this case, miss Tyson, and Mr. Fairfax agree that they know each other. In this case, miss Tyson, and Mr. Fairfax agree, a sexual exchange took place. We are way beyond Christie blazey Ford and Brett Cavanaugh with this way beyond it. He's not denying. He knows her. He's not denying. They had a sexual relationship. They're denying the nature of it was a consensual or not. Is this something she consented to as he claims or did he violently force her head down to perform oral sex against her will to the point of gagging. Her and essentially choking her as she clinks. They're not the same. And this again, sometimes we're our movement in our industry loves the low-lying, click Beatty fruit. And we step on her own Fallas here and cut our noses off despite our face. They're not the same. Whatever anticipated judicial disappointments, I'm expecting from Brett Cavanaugh on this court as a human being Brett cavenaugh deserves better than that. They're not the same. We went through seven FBI background checks. Seventeen hours. Basically have live televised hearings on national television, or whatever it was twelve hours eight hours, whatever it was. Vocal police investigations. No actual connection between brick Cavanaugh and Christie blazey Ford was even ever established through all of that. Let alone cavenaugh saying. Yeah, we had sex. She just wanted it. It's not the same thing at all. It's not the same thing at all. And I wanna make sure that point is stressed gentlemen and made berry clearly. Because the Kate if we if we what'll happen is if we don't make that point. And if we all just do the funny, ha ha ha twenty nineteen y'all what'll happen now. And you see it with the second that user? Well, this is just what's next, you know, he ran rape rooms because this is the whole cavenaugh thing. And just the right is no, no, no, no, no. The credibility in my opinion of the second accuser really isn't even relevant to this case right now. Because they both agree mistaken. And Mr. Fairfax both agree. We know each other we had a sexual exchange. So that's what we stopped now. And we investigate what actually happened here because they're both admitting to the material facts of the case the difference is in the interpretation of those facts and events in the cavenaugh case, we got seven F B I background checks seven we even paused after the after the whole day of hearings. If you recall for the seventh FBI background check to take place. You remember this? The White House ordered another one. No connection between Brett Cavanaugh and Christie lazy forward to this day has ever been established. But Todd in this case, there's a clear connection they both own up to it. They clearly had a sexual encounter. They both own up to it. The cases are not the same. We should not let that narrative becomes get established. Well, of course, not the time. You spent no doubt will be ignored by all on all sides of the you just see what's happening as we. Now that hashtag twenty twenty is in the room, and you are about to get to that here after I'm done talking. I mean sanity is just simply not on the table and the degree to which we have all allowed ourselves to have licensed to ruin other people's lives in the pace of politics is just getting warmed up other. And by the way, despite the fact there is material evidence linking the two I still believe in innocent until proven guilty. Now, that's different. That's a criminal standpoint. Not a political one. Mean you could make if Virginia Democrats decide the baggage of carrying him with these allegations is to hefty and he has to go. Well. Innocent until proven guilty doesn't necessarily apply to political side of things like it does on the criminal side of things and he's been offered a chance. And again, I'm only focusing on the first allegation. Because there is a definitive link established between those two he's offered no counter narrative to this other than she wanted it. So this is now where you need to start looking at corroborating witnesses. Did she tell how many other people that you tell this tale to the details lineup things of that nature? But we had a discussion last week how much of an impact, and we even talked about this on Friday. This was going to have on Democrats. I really think we need to reevaluate our cynicism on this. There is no path to the presidency without Virginia. Well, let me rephrase that there is a limited path to two hundred seventy electoral college votes without Virginia for the Democrats. It's it's it's a must have pretty close to it for them. We are in a situation now. With the white governor who is now in in. What was supposed to be as make good interview is referring to slaves indentured servants and has to be corrected by the end of your Gayle king who started out that interview the most conciliatory sympathetic way, see possibly fide, and then he still and he still can't he still can't take advantage of the situation. And now that she's got a curriculum that you're talking about slaves. Oh, yes. Lakes. The white guys. Get a stay. But the black guy with no convictions is gonna go. Oh, folks. Okay. This will not this is not going to be contained. If that's how this story ends. Absolutely not. This violates every this is it's a terrible analogy. But I think it makes the point I wanna make. This is the Boston Globe original story on the sex abuse scandal of the archdiocese in Boston. And then it metastasized is because it goes to the overall state of things in that in that ecclesiastical sphere intersection -ality isn't ecclesiastical sphere to these pagans. This is their church. This is this is this is this is like are one archdiocese one of the main ones in a battleground state. The Democrats are about to finish taking over. Republicans have a narrow majority in legislature. They've controlled for a long time and Democrats are on the verge of just making this totally blue state now. And the white guy governor's gonna stay when he still FU bars his make good interview. But the black guy with no criminal convictions is gonna go folks. I'm just telling you. That's not that's not how this works. That's not how any of this works. But that's the way it's trending right now. And if it goes down like that their base is not well that leftist base because we've always talked to democratic basis that leftist democratic base, they're not like us. They're not they're not just making. They they don't just want a really cool speaker for liberties convocation ceremony next week. No, no, no. No. No. No. No, no, no, no, no Ferguson, much that. No that if that's the way this goes down, whatever you thought Trump's odds of winning Virginia. Twenty twenty were quintupled him Sextuplet him. That that cannot. That the dude will not abide that that that is a Napa to their religion. And I think we were I think we were on our panel Friday. And this is the point I was trying to make. But it's even blown up all the more. Now since we had this conversation on Friday. This is a cancer in that party. And it's metastasized right now talk about the metastasized if you don't think that there are thirty right wing or maybe just enterprising journalists journalists for whatever whatever that term means anymore. If you don't think that there are thirty of them at least going through every single democratic governor and Lieutenant governors high school and college yearbooks right now, I've got a piece of beachside property and Siberia to sell you because that's happening this and they're on TV over the weekend. Todd. They said what are the officials said? Well, the reason they're not pressuring AG to go is because his job would be taken over by very conservative Republican whose cultural issues, we don't agree with. So because he's a racist. He he that racist gets to stay because we don't like the Republican. So now, you're going to say the white racist is good a stay to the second. One's gonna stay in the black is gonna go. Oh, dude. No. I know, but let me it's not quite a pushback, but devil's advocate. Yes, that's literal on these cases, you I know I I'm with you when you say, no, no, no. But we just saw on the green new deal. You're going to talk about later, but that guy funk art, Garfunkel, son, or whoever that was the comfor- -bility with which he will just brazenly lie and spin and contorts or temporarily ignore intersection combined with the fact, listen, I had a vision of you this weekend, you know, that scene in Dunkirk, which is not a great movie, but a powerful seen when they're on the beach in the beginning, and the one soldier is just done any wanders out into the surf. Sunday morning when we're getting snow that you're hitting so much, and I get on Twitter get up get my coffee. Before going to mass, and I see Trump just been nitro Ling several other gal's running for president. I envisioned you just getting up from your kitchen table walking out into the snow and never coming back. Because that's that's the other side of this coin brother it is. It is I agree. But here's the issue with the intersection -ality thing. The lies are supposed to benefit the most favored classes, they get away with the lying and the few stations. Okay. So we've got there's a story going on in college sports right now two quarterbacks are transferring one to the school the other one used to be at and another one away from the school. The the other one is going to for the same reason because they think the guy the other guy that was already at the school. That's there now is better than me. And I'm not gonna play. So Justin fields is leaving Georgia straight from is better than him. And he's not gonna play and take Martell is leaving Ohio stake is Justin fields is going there. And he's better than he's not gonna play. But since one guy black he gets to lie and say I had a racial incident with a baseball player which happened months before the season started he stayed in school play the entire season. His sister just just enrolled to play softball at the school. But he gets to use that lie that excuse I'm going to call it. That's a scam. It's a scam. And even put out a statement afterwards saying, you know, Georgia's great with diversity, they really well either that either either his statement is a scam or his charge against Georgia's a scam. One of them's ally anybody because he's black. He gets to use that to get immediately. Eligible to go to a place where he doesn't have to compete for job tape mortels not gonna get to use that excuse. And that's like that's like if you wanted to how did we get Donald Trump stories like when I'm talking about right here is I get them. People are just tired of these double standards. They're tired of these lies. The intersection -ality game is those allies are supposed to benefit people that look like Justin fields that look like just in Fairfax when they benefit people that look like Ralph Northam and the guys that look like just like just Fairfax get thrown under the bus. Oh, no. No, no. That's not. No, no, no, no hell to the. No. That's the difference. Here is all the white guys. Stay and the black guy. To go. That's that's that's what makes this a lot different. I agree. But if they have to while all of that somehow to salvage Virginia to get the presidency, but see you same thing with Trump. I've always said Trump doesn't that to offend a lot of people to lose. Neither do they. Tripoli lost the state like three or four points in the last election. There's not too many people that have to just say I'm out. I this. I agree. That's the math. But you I think would agree that it's not beyond them to have. Fairfax ultimately, kicked out stage left, even if it's kind of murky, and what actually happened to go and then to go out of their way to redeem north him just to somehow salvage that state in. But the problem is he's he can't redeem himself as you just saw on that performance. Will you just saw? But even Gayle she pushed back on the on the fact that he didn't use the term racism. But do you think she would have allowed that open ended beginning, please tell us your story to somebody on the right? No way. No. But that only makes my point more. They're trying to resurrect to resuscitate him. He can't he can't take it can't. It was less time. You had your ears professionally cleaned. If you're off northern you might want to consider it about right now. Okay. King segues baby itching ears if you know what I'm saying, no, not those kind the other or pain or that plugged up feeling you constantly asking people to repeat themselves if so instead of getting a professional cleaning that cost a ton of money and as a long wait at a doctor's office.

It's welcome in our good friend vanderploeg family leader gonna see a brother. How are you? I'm doing really well. How are you doing? Steve I'm doing well. Also, Aaron can I go back to your montage really quick. Yes. You and your montage. You have a Muslim member of congress calling for the defunding of the department of homeland security. Yeah. It's no lie. That's that's a level of self parody. It's like it's like it's like some commenter at Breitbart is literally writing her talking points. Now like that can't be true. It's like a parody. It's like it's like a conservative parody of what a Muslim member of congress would say, and it it's actually true. That can't be true is pretty much everything we say a lot, right? It can't be true that John casick could make Elizabeth Warren. Hey, look, it's fortnight. More. But he managed to pull it off. Yes. So Bob, let's get to the state of the union. And I don't want to get your thoughts on the speech. It's a week old broken at all. Let's get your thoughts on the follow up to the speech. And and whether or not this is a moment in time that lasts for five minutes, like most stated unions too. But every now, and then there is one that captures enough of the imagination and the man who gave the speech is able to stay on that message and cast that vision long enough for it to reset things. What's your what's your sense on this president's ability to do that? Because I think the vision that he offered up is one that makes it possible for him to win. Given where the Democrats are going if he can stay on that vision thirty some odd states in the next election staying on that vision, though, given his personality is also difficult and can cause backlashes on the other side is we just saw in the last midterm election. So what's your sense on where that's out right now? Are they doing it too early to tell what do you think? Maybe too early to tell. But I I think he is actually doing things staying on message. And you're right. It's a message. I'll win at twenty twenty. That's what you need to do that speech. I think what you're seeing is the reaction from your from his going to be opponents or his current opponents when the being Nancy Pelosi Schumer in the congress or this or test lady in congress or whether it be the so-called presidential candidates. I think you're gonna see more stuff coming out that you just related to Amazon Taj were saying is that really true. How could that be true? Tell me that isn't true. But when you're when you're arresting someone for calling a transgender woman a man when you're calling on the defunding of homeland security were saying saying give road the pilot insurance companies across this country. What you're seeing is the left is exposing themselves like crazy after the speech. And I think they're doing more of a favourite of. Donald Trump's reelection campaign the needle Trump could do himself. So of Trump's stays on message, and he keeps talking about unity and national security in God's designed for a culture of human life and economic prosperity in a cease to the endless wars, and those type of things I think he wins. I'm with you. Steve I think he was by a live and has to do with the way the reaction has been to this speech. I think it's only assisting in helping Donald Trump at this point the reason why they can stay on this message. I think he can win more convincingly than people think is because I think it will raise the stature and respect level of his presidency. I think his personality is a loss leader. And it's it's just not gonna change. It's who he is. He's seventy years old. But if he can latch on to themes as you like to say, you know, look higher if he can latch onto transcend themes that Americans lived a rally behind while the Democrats are, you know, essentially vacating that space if not defecating on it as we speak, and he can own that by himself then by extension. I think he can essentially hitch his wagon to those stars and raise the stature of his presidency by being seen as the only viable alternative or vehicle for those values of Americana. Again, this is why I am begging everybody, I know that works in this White House and has spent more than three seconds with Donald Trump that still isn't contact with them do not let him have this this summit with North Korea. I think it's a terrible idea. And I will admit part of it is two things. I. Can't abide wimps and horse. Puckey? I I don't care what uniform they're from. I don't care what whose DNA they are. I can't do whips, and I can't do horse punky. All right. But the Tweety put out over the weekend about Kim Young. That's hey FDR from nineteen thirty five loosely to makes the trains run on time. I who cares about turning do. You wanna make him young rich is that what you think is the idea because I kind of would like to end Kim Young. I don't understand this fascination with him. And I think that's the kind of stuff that's an unforced error that gives his opponents the feed the narrative, you know, that he likes Thawra -tarian he likes deaths spots. That's why he was Putin. Stooge? There is literally nothing to gain for the American people. This isn't China where there are landlord. There is nothing to gain for the American people to slurp all over the head of North Korea. So why go into it? I could agreed the more. I Steve to your earlier point staying on message stain on vision. This is the NFL over again where he has the American flag on his side. And they're trying to rally around people are taking a knee to the American flight. He's gonna win though. So in eastern about economic prosperity or national security urban the culture of human life, people are going to rally around that if they see the opponents either taking opposite position to it or sitting on their hands when he saying these types of things he wins that one, but when it comes to North Korea. I mean, I have no idea why he is playing to that competition of that level where the United States of America. We don't just lift somebody up like this and give him the stage that he sold desires and puts him on equal footing is United States of America. This guy's a thug. He's a murderer. He's done awful things. We'd like to end his reign. We don't want to give him tweets of compliments. Sure you. Can't you can bring him in the little bit of Honey. But this is to me, it's loss leaders one that it's a it's a major trip or could be a major trip up after an excellent state of the union speech where he just needs to stay on message right now. Vanderploeg's from the leader our guest here on the blaze live and on demand here on the Steve day show Friday is d day. The fifteenth that's win this temporary resolution OPRI opening the government expires the president's people were on television over the weekend. Saying shutdown is definitely not off the table. Let's start there. Do you really believe we're going to see another shutdown again? Well, I do believe that that Trump is is dug in saying, you know, I'm not gonna give in what the wall funding. You're seeing his tweets about saying this is unacceptable. These are non starving in regards to them to go on the wall of funny. I think that you could see shut now I think the Dem's have to give in in some way, shape or form saying we're willing to go. She ate in good faith where willing to border security. Don't call it a wall. Don't call the fans don't call it. Whatever you wanna call, but call border security is some type in give him some funding to keep the government. I think what Trump might be looking at the end of we shut down the government again. I think what is it just shows the Democrats willing to go sheet at all? So I think yes, I think is I'm likely you could see a government shutter. What would if that's the scenario then instead of just keeping it open any issues? Let me start with that. Which do you think is more likely a shutdown or he keeps it open signs that continuing resolution and issues and emergency declaration for the border, which which scenario, do you think is more likely at some point if he's gonna do an emergency declaration? We keep talking about the emergency decoration on an issue in national -mergency because our southern border is is putting America at risk. If that is the case that was true six weeks ago, as it was six minutes ago, you I mean, I would say if that's the case that's you need to learn astral today light now. And if that is a case in it. You wanna move that route keep the government open that might be as best. Option, but we keep playing the card of this is a national nerd see our nation's at wrist will we continue to take place. Well, three soon that becomes negligence of leadership on his part. And I'm sure he doesn't want to go there. So it may be let's keep the government open. I'm doing a state of emergency. And we're gonna we're gonna take care of the border on his terms. All right. So if we don't do a state of emergency, and we have a shutdown instead, what's the leverage point for Democrats to give in. No when they saw the president cave a couple of weeks ago. They're already out in the open of get their presidential candidates is seen as a matter. Nancy Pelosi says now because we're in the midst of a presidential race in our own, you know, and you and I saw this in the Republican side in two thousand sixteen Mitch McConnell could decide that he wants Mitch McConnell could decide he wants a certain agenda in the Senate. But with Marco Rubio Ted Cruz and rand Paul all running for president. They're going to decide really what the agenda is an Ted Cruz wants to shut the government down. He's because it's good for his presidential campaign because it's. He's making the right point. He's going to do it whether Mitch McConnell wants it or not. So this is kind of out of her hands. Now, you've got multiple members of the Democratic Congress running for president. There's others that are kind of shadow running like beta award, for example, and they're already out there saying, hey, no ice. You know, we're not gonna have any private health insurance. Kill every kid you want whenever you want. I mean, they're they're already as you pointed out there letting so many cats out of the bag now, I don't I don't know. Why would they be pressured to reopen the government for border security when they've already crossed the Rubicon on so many issues already as it is. Very fair point. And I think what what you're gonna see that. Especially the presidential candidates can be dug in as saying we are not going to give into him or ninety give into the border funding. It's not who we are which is going to force Nancy Pelosi's hand. So maybe Trump should just Neil offer a national emergency option. Let's engage down at the southern border and keep the government open and just point out to the Democrats as you just said, they don't wanna fund ice anymore. Maffei Winnie prosecute easily aliens who are criminals in our society. They don't want to deport them. And the more you start exposing who the Democrats will aren't in the I think is what's happening. You're gonna get more and more people like Eric Erickson that you saw this morning saying over three years ago. He went to hashtag never Trump. But now ready he saying, I'm all in for Trump, whatever he needs them all in a so of issues with his character and other things, but I will not let our country go this way, the more they expose themselves. The more you're gonna see a rallying around Trump. Even those who never thought they could go. Finally, you brought up. I thought good point. Which is if we have an emergency. Then we had an emergency six months ago six years ago, six minutes ago, so why wait until Friday to declare one we should have declared when all along this goes back to what I said before the first shutdown, which is this is why I you know, to me if there's no shovel in the ground. He did teach him Carter himself. You can't go on national television and tell people there's a, you know, as you know, your first Oval Office address is there's there's a national security issue here. And then we're gonna do nothing about it. So if you are in that White House right now advising the president about the next few days and how to handle this looming deadline. Your advice would be what advice would be. We've talked on this show before leaders reaching their Popeye moment. That's all I can stay can stands at no more that compels me to act. I think as early as today well before. Friday is should say, listen, the Democrats are not negotiating good faith. This is what they wanna do ice. This is what they wanna do homeland security. We can't do this. I emission wing. National learn seat we're going to southern border. We're in commenced, the construction of a wall in electron IX, whatever is to deter people from trafficking over here. And I think he just has point for who they are. So that would be my vice to them. You've reached your Popeye moment. You've given them opportunity to help you lead Ellen non Arvidsson deal here. They're not willing to do it. So now, I have to lead on my own. And I think the American people rally around a least his base will. And that's what needs to be most concerned about right now on the family leader. Thanks for joining us here. Bob, good to see man. Thank you. God bless God bless talk to you next week. Bob antibiotics brought to you by Cosmo hurts kids, we like to support causes on this show about individuals who see a problem have the courage to take a stand try to affect positive change to deal with it and miss, Victoria. Hearst is such a person, and she's taking one of the toughest stances you could possibly take against your own family. She's part of the Hearst family as in William Randolph Hearst. They actually own cosmopolitan magazine. She's concerned about how it is gone increasingly adult in recent years while still marketing itself to to young girls daughters like Todd's like mine, she's asking them. Hey, let's practice some responsibility here. Maybe not censorship. How about stewardship if you guys want to go down this road? If you basically want to be a glossier version of playboy, I guess that's your decision. But then you should be shielded and treated with as an adult magazine like playboy is if you agree and you'd like to lend your voice to a cause a lot of you ask me all the time. What can I do? I'm busy. What can I do, you know with job kids etcetera? Go to Cosmo hurts kids dot com. That's that's at least one thing. You can do right now to take a positive Stanford for change. Cosmo hurts kids dot com. That's Cozma hurts kids dot com. Reaction when we heard from Bob Andrew plots, the advice, he would give the president which is if we have a national emergency don't wait until the next funding deadline declare it right now while you have the moral high ground because if it's an emergency. Then why would you wait even more days to declare one your thoughts on that? I was joking with Aaron earlier hub before you came in. But this is why I'm giving up Donald Trump for lent. I think expecting anything of him anyways. That's that's obviously transparently true. But we've spent a lot of time the last couple of years saying things that are obviously transparently true that just. My Eric Eric's that point there. Listen, don't begrudge anybody going one way or the other. But you all of us are from moment to moment in a position where we are all in than the next moment. We might be all out. He's what if he doesn't. Here's what I guarantee in the point. I'm trying to get it. It's it's not going to be for those reasons and motivations. Which is he's not listening to us that way, he never has. There's another calculus that needs to be made him to convince them to do it because it won't be because what Bob says it won't be. Because of what you say, Steve, it's just gonna happen to be whatever women as at the moment that coincides with what we need in many ways, we are. We are. We are almost like Giovane to him. More more like Ivanka. He she comes to him. We theorize we don't know this. But we theorize that she comes to him and says, but daddy and just to make that problem. Go away. He says, okay. Okay. Okay. I'll given or all do this do that. Those rare times though, when conservative media comes to Trump and says Trump you idiot, which is just Arvin of saying daddy to Yvonne Kaz he'll do whatever he needs to do to just get the problem to go away for a temporary amount of time. It is clear especially and I said this sect on Friday. I mean, I thought maybe if he could raise the stakes and you talked about this all last week raise the stakes of the viability and the respectability of the bully pulpit for more than just a speech than this. You know, that could be a start of something that could potentially affect things in twenty twenty. It's clear he is not able not capable of possessing that bully pulpit the. Moral high ground for an issue for more than forty eight to seventy two hours in less. It's just dropped in his lap. Which the Democrats gotta handed up to them are more than able and willing to do. But he enough himself. Just does not have the wherewithal to do that. Because he is just a compromised, man. And we've been saying that over and over again, there's nothing more nothing less. We need to understand try to try to predict about Trump other than he's a flawed man a flawed man who can insert circumstances be used as a proxy for us in those certain circumstances. It's just really frustrating though to see to pay out the way it does most of the time. So we're gonna come back and continue our study on the book truth bombs, and I'm gonna drop a truth mama Todd because I think he may have been a man ahead of his time. I'll explain what I mean by that here in a moment. Stay. Back with our to hear live and on demand on the blaze. I am Steve dais Todd. And Erin are here with me as well.

I we're gonna continue on with our study of my new book truth bombs in a moment. But I'm going to drop a truth bomb on you today because I had an epiphany as we were talking. And. I'm not gonna poll a screaming as Smith. When I think I've clearly been proven wrong about something. I'm not gonna like triple down and just own it. So I said a few weeks ago that regardless of how the the shutdown ended. Whatever whatever it took to make it end if shortly after its ultimate resolution. Shovels did not hit dirt minutes, if not hours days the no longer than that after the resolution. Trump's presidency is Dead Man Walking he Jimmy Carter himself right member me saying. Here's what transpired after. I said this. To democratic governors. Openly. Advocated one legislatively the other rhetorically. For open infanticide, like just open infanticide. We're watching the Democratic Party say the white racists, get to stay. But the black guy who hasn't been convicted of anything, although I admit, it doesn't look good. But he has not been convicted of anything. He's got to go. We have the only job wearing member of congress calling for the defunding of the department of homeland security. It is somebody I posted about this on Twitter. One of my replies is a guy whose name is Boko haram b. Oh. Yes. You you're better at this than us. We're gonna hit that. Okay. Who said this is like a rejected twenty four script. Yes. Right. The only job wearing member of congress is in office for a month and calls with the defending of the department of homeland security. Do you do, you know, there's like nine commenters at Breitbart s- website right Now, Dan, why didn't we didn't think of this? Okay. I mean, I could go on no private insurance. That's good to go. We put it in writing what our proposals really mean. And then when people take us at our word within lie for an entire weekend that wasn't us. And by the way, if it was us we released it by mistake. But still allow us to totally tell you how to live your life. Anyway. Here's the thing. The longest time. We thought. The outcome of the two thousand eighteen election was going to be determined by your axiom, which was what? I see what you're doing here. The one who's Domus last loses. And then we got about the middle of the year. I started looking at the data the data and the trend lines. And I was like, you know. I think that may not be true because. You've got a Senate election pre much happening and all the states Trump won in a house election pretty much happening in all the states. The Democrats won. I wonder if we're just gonna get down to the end of the year. And we're gonna look at the math and think this is probably how it was going to go all along member. We started having that. Yeah. To convert and then we started having it more and more as we got closer to the election, and we got to election day. And what happened somehow the Republicans picked up two Senate seats while losing forty house seats. That's not typically how this process works. Except for the balkanisation of America. In in the swing districts on the house side that balkanisation played to the Democrats favor and the balkanisation play did the Republicans favor on the Senate side or the map was a bonus to them in the end. There was no amount of stupid that you could do because the map was just locked in the math. The math wasn't gonna change. Right. See I think maybe. I think maybe you were a man ahead of your time. I think this may end up being. The whoever's dumbest last loses and those guys were buying our t shirts, and they were complaining that we put twenty teen on them because they said, it's never greenvale were right. Yes. I think the reason why is twofold, there's two reasons one Trump will be directly on the ballot now. So he will get you know, we went to this in the Obama. Here's where it was just about do you like his policies. His party got destroyed in twenty ten in two thousand fourteen and then what is about him in his party did great in two thousand eight in two thousand. All right. It's the opposite with Trump. Do you like Trump? His party do well in two thousand six two thousand eighteen when it becomes about like policies and now he's going to be on the ballot to directly defend his record. So it's not just a one way troll. And you know, we've got that map. We keep showing the audience. It's got how many grey states on that map? Aaron do we have that handy by any chance? Let me get it. Real quick. I want to let's count the gray states on this map, which we think is the most realistic if we're being as as as sympathetic as we possibly can. This is the map that we think looks this is where the twenty twenty election begins. This is where we think Democrats have already won. Regardless of how dumb may be how who they nominate they have won these states. And this is where we think Republicans have one regardless of how offensive Trump is how dumb they may be these are the states they've already one. Meaning doesn't matter. What either side does these states the balkanisation here is locked in? And therefore, the elections get it'd be decided in those Speight those states that are shaded gray. And. I never thought in a million years. Trump would be dumb enough to orchestrate a shutdown and then after doing so would have no plan for how to resolve it. And then would just out of nowhere, Sweden, basically, give state of the union speech. Are you serious about that? Yeah. Like, I thought for sure they would have come up with a plan of how to resolve it once the shutdown took place. And then they wouldn't have just caved just to give the state of the union speech. And then I thought dancy Pelosi would never be dumb enough to let Trump cave to give state of the union speech. So that he could then give a speech that would do exactly what. Right, which is say on the president for Americana. They're communists. But she did. And then there's everything that's gone down here. The last couple of weeks, we have the map. Let's count the gray so Nevada Arizona to Colorado three Iowa four Wisconsin five Michigan six Ohio seven Pennsylvania, eight New Hampshire nine Virginia. Ten and there was some people told me I was wrong for keeping Virginia there and the gray. But it looks like a pretty good call right about now North Carolina at eleven Florida's. So twelve twelve that's that's your. That's your murky dozen. Not your duty doesn't that? You're murky doesn't the future of America is gonna be determined in these twelve states, and they're not the same. They're not. They're not murky for similar reasons. Colorado's not like Iowa, for example, Arizona's not like, Wisconsin. For example, Florida's not like Pennsylvania, for example. And the point of pointing that out is that there's you're gonna have to it's going to be very difficult to to come up with a message, the rallies all of those people in those twelve states simultaneously. That's why when we introduce this map, there's two paths here. The first path is skinny the to seventy and win. That's George W Bush two thousand four put a marriage amendment on the ballot and Florida in Ohio. And let's just you know, get our win and get out. The problem with that strategy is I think the Democrats are gonna make that strategy unachievable now because they're gonna force the existential argument. As we talked about late last week. We talked about all last week. They're gonna force the existential argument people like me have wanted to have our whole careers in the Republican party is done everything. They can to put us down. Cheated guest in primaries. Stab us in the back. Lied about us whatever they could sided with Democrats to help them take out in general elections. They the Republican party does not want to have this X -sential argument. It's donors just making too much damn money. They want to keep the they want to keep the gravy train of flowing. But the problem is the Democrats. Aren't going along with that? The Democrats want to have the trial for America. That's what they wanna have. And they're going to force it. So you can see in Trump state of the union speech last week. He took these cue from them. And didn't didn't give you. There was some of the laundry list of here's a bunch of policies that will likely never happen. We see in every state of the union. There was some of him taking credit for the the economy, which he would be politically malfeasance not to do. Because if the economy wasn't good, and he was the president. He'd get all the blame. Right. Okay. So we saw some of the traditional trappings of a state of the union, but we saw something else though. And that's the part that everybody keeps talking about. The it's the Americans part. It's the we're never going to be a socialist country part. It's the part where taking his cue from them saying we want to be western Europe. Now, we wanna be France. Now. We wanna be a secular socialist democracy. That's what we want to be. And we're not hiding it anymore. Trump cast a clear clearly stark vision. And that's the only way you can put all twelve of those gray states together is you have enough of a broad vision mandate that those twelve states, or at least a vast majority of them say we don't want to become that America. We're not signing up for that another way way of saying it is instead of Reagan doing this with it's morning in America. Again, Trump doing this with would you like it to be to ever be morning in America again. Or would you like to say goodnight moon to America? Because that's where the Democrats are going. We'll get more into this on the blaze roundtable today. But that's what the green deal dream. That's what it's about this. This is never been about climate. It's been about replacing the American western way of life. And they're making that pretty out in the open now. And so they've kind of forced him into whether he wanted to ever have it or not they've kind of forced him into if he wants to be reelected. He's gonna have to go bigger and go higher than focusing on us. He's going to have to go bigger and go higher than locker up. He's going to have to go bigger and go higher than pick. Your preferred troll. And for about thirty minutes of his state of the union address. I thought he rose to that occasion. I think that's the only argument he can win. And I think if he makes it he can't lose. Because I don't believe while America is not ready to return to jeffersonian republicanism. It's not ready to become communist either. We're having the twenty twenty election, not the twenty thirty two election. Twenty thirty to twenty Twenty-eight. They might be able to nominee it'll cost you a Cortez and run away with it. We don't have revival in a win shot Shaq meets why have been saying revival bust for the last seven eight years of my career, but we're not having that election right now, we're having the twenty twenty election. And as things stand right now twenty twenty this is not a country ready to full-fledged, adopt. Everything you liked about gene Roddenberry Star Trek. And none of the things that you did. Okay. So ready to go there yet? So ready to put on the red shirt and beamed down to the planet. Not ready yet. It might be soon. But not yet. So I think you were a man ahead of your time. The analysis. I gave about the wall is no void. They have they have they have engaged the level of stupid. And by that, I mean honesty. They have they have engaged shameful nakedness that. You. I've tried my whole career to get these guys to be honest about what they really believe. And now they're just out there just toss them caution to the wind. So if that's how we're gonna play than member when I said Trump coming off as a weak leader changes the math on how much. Left. People are willing to put it in this symbiotic relationship. The math has two plus two equals four two plus two the other ways still s to equal what for for the math is. It's not real math. The formula only works one way so three plus two equals five two. Plus three must also week will what five so just as Trump looking weak. This is why all over this North Korea thing right now because there's no way he won't look weak. And the weaker. He looks the more leftism the country will be willing to tolerate as a result. But if we're going pass leftism now to America's spelled with a K, and we're Busta hammers and sickles will the math works. The other way too. The more hammer and sickly they get the more of Trump's act folks will be willing to tolerate it's a symbiotic relationship. So if you want Donald Trump to be reelected, here's what would be the worst strategy. Fluffer duty. The stronger of a leader. He looks the less of this of this of this radicalism. From the left. The American people will tolerate. Because there's no point in. He has to be seen as a strong leader. If you want him to be seen as the repudiation of this, right? Why would you run for cover with somebody? You don't believe has what it takes to protect you from this. The stronger of a leader. He is. More bad acid, a leader. He is perceived to be. The more of his trolling and other things. People don't like they will put up with because they will see him as the vehicle to repel this over here. They clearly do not want. So the symbiotic relationship works both ways here. Which means I think this is actually now. The whoever's dumbest last loses election. This one is. You were just at your timing. I'll take it it, of course. While it worried me last time it pretty much terrifies me this time. I mean, good grief. It's going to be really appallingly dump steep. John casick doing high yoga didn't raise your I q level. No. So what so in that vein? What how do you explain the weekend? When this is so obvious in the the same people advising him writing speech for them. And there he is this weekend and be it seems like in terms of going into another shutdown versus just declaring the emergency. It seems obvious on the face of what you're saying that if forget the shutdown call the emergence, I don't based on this. The other part is easily explicable he's Donald Trump. We're not the Holy Spirit. We're not he's not going to change. You know? And so you have to understand that. Your power hitters. Get a strike out a certain amount of time swinging for the fences, you just hope that he connects enough times to justify it. And when the and when the ratio doesn't work in your favor, you lose when it does. Hey is long as he may strike out. He it's four eighties. If he strikes out three of them. But one of them's a three run Homer. Your chance of winning are pretty high. If he strikes all four though, that's that is the reality of life with Donald Trump. And I don't see that changing the other part. Then is you need advisers who don't try to change him. But try to accentuate the strength. He brings to the table. Right. Trump's at its best is when he has an immediate battle and foil. So give him battles. Right. I would not do the shutdown if 'cause now the Democrats are so out in the open crazy what leverage could he bring that would get them to cave at this point on anything. Why would they do it? I don't know what it could be the courts or foil. Yes, that's pick that fight go there. Instead. Okay. Well, Donald Trump was convinced by these advisers to give that speech that your analysis says he desperately wanted yet. Then is incapable of listening to them in terms of the Longview, which brings me up to forget air Ericsson specifically, but people like him doing that isn't. If this is for real, it's it's been it's more about our shows or blogs. Don't more people like him ultimate lead to volunteer and say. Sign me up like actually become part of the administration. And I really because he's clearly we need a different brand to your point advisor. Yeah. And I don't even know if he'll listen to them the answer to that question is. Yeah. I don't think you'll again ever see a president more reliant on who his immediate advisers are for what vision he casts because we'll likely never see somebody whose worldview is as morpheus whose personal politics are as undefined and whose personality is as as as a total combination Bill Clinton's. Principles where rather amorphous? All right. But I mean, the the combination of these things at all times, you are really dealing with a world dervish, you're really dealing with the Tasmanian devil kind of character. And so you're dealing with somebody who is a lot of times going to be in is going to be heavily influenced by the last person he respects, and what they said the last story heard that got his attention and. You know, often the great management in great coaching is not trying to get people to do with. They can't do. But get him to be the best at what they actually are. You know and use that to your advantage because wall it's incredibly frustrating on our end, if you had a good team of advisers who harnessed that can you imagine how devastating he would be just pardon the pun trumping all of their fake narratives that they get together and their editorial meetings at four AM and say, this is the story we're going to tell America today. And if he just if you could channel that in a way where he was just smashing though, Chivas of the dam on a regular basis. Now, the reason he doesn't have that staff is because a lot of conservatives like us didn't think because of his lack of moral character. He was entering the pool now during it now based on what he's actually Eric did say in his tweet today. He's happy to help and do whatever he can on the campaign trail that I think that. It's at least bagel I understand that. There are still people that are holdouts. But at least debatable that he has tried or actually delivered on enough things we care about that. He's worth the investment risk, especially when you consider the alternative market. Now that were that that in this is what I wrote for conservative review of the weekend. The twenty twenty election isn't about Donald Trump. The Democrats have let this be known that the twenty twenty election is about their attempt to finish their jihad against Americana. That's what it's about. I'm I'm not making. I'm just taking their words me. I'm the guy that's railed against the lesser of two evils my entire career. I've changed my mind on any of that. I also don't ignore a home invasion when a guy comes through my front door and points, a good in my face and threatens my family at the same time. You know, that's kind of where the Democrats have gone now. I mean, they've book both barrels. I mean, I. I'm not home. I just like in twenty sixteen like you guys. Just want me to ignore everything. We know about this guy when now in twenty twenty I'm kind of like, you guys want me to ignore everything we know about these kinds know works both ways, you know. And if the math comes down, and you're like, I just can't of the guys I can't do it. I'm not I'm not here to change anybody's mind. I'm here to tell you where my mind is going. Well, my mind is thinking I can't deny when someone has declared war on me. This isn't about Donald Trump. This about me, the myself interests, the transactional process in like, I wrote for conservative review this weekend much, rather have Eric Gordon in charge right now. And I think I kind of think Pippen Mary are. But if Pippa Mary's the last thing stated between me, and Sal, Ron, you know, in the past we kind of thought what would happen if sour on opened the black gate, and we always theorized about it. It ain't theory guys. The gate is open. The orcs are common. I hear the nas- goal in the back. So what we're not theorising? Now, we're not philosophy size. And we're not doing math. We are doing real. Though, the black hordes are coming over the mount doom. So it's it's kind of a fighter flight point for for for my perspective. You know, I don't really even I don't even necessarily care who the general is right now because this is a threat against my way of life in my family. That's the war that has been declared. So when we when I when I when I express my frustration about him as a weak leader. When he when he projects weakness like he does with North Korea. It's similar to me expressing frustration with Tim Harbaugh. Yes. Yeah. It's not that. I don't want him to win. It's that I do helps me. Yes. Hell help you. I know most people are wired to come up with reasons why they're being screwed. And that's why they lost. I understand that. I'm not wired that way, I don't know why I have some suspicions. Maybe that's just the way. God made me. I'm more wired about why don't we do right now? Would it would take? So we don't have to make excuses later. That's wired. It's also I don't have a lot of friends. And it's why a lot of people are perfectly happy with me living in Iowa. So the not around me a lot because most people aren't like me most people are like we'll just do the best. We can. And then when it doesn't work out. We'll be like we got screw they stole the election. The rest the media. There's always a victim card got some. I would rather win. We got some breaking news here. There's another video of Alexandria, Cossio Cortez dancing. Just you should know about that. Yeah. Exactly. I wanna beat these guys, you know, but. Slurp North Korea doesn't help the cause like running the bowl and third and fourteen doesn't make it doesn't help the cause. It's bad enough.

Let's get to this week's continuing study of new book truth bombs, confronting the lies conservatives believe to our own demise endorsed by there. You can see Ben Shapiro. Mark levin. Glenn beck.

And thank you to all of you that have already done. So so last week we talked about the introduction and an inspiration for the book gentlemen this week. We're going to start now going through the process of confronting some of these lies and start with line number one. The Republican party is our rightful home. Here's the truth bomb response political parties may be the single most corrupting influence ever devised by mortal. Manse gentlemen. I turn it over to you. Well, I found fascinating in this. I gave up on the whole hunger games thing. After the first movie. I didn't think it was bad. I just didn't think it was great. And I haven't kept my promise to myself yet. But you use the hunger games example in this chapter to flesh out the now, I think it's for those who have seen it. I think it'll be really helpful because it was helpful for me in as much as a know what it's about two to describe to put flesh on the blown of what you're talking about. So there's no point me going on. What do you mean? By why the hunger games describes what you're talking about? If you watched the way, the hunger games evolved as a franchise in the first two movies are great. And the next two movies would have been great if they would have kept it just one movie, but for the cash grab and so instead of making a third great movie they made too many yoga ones split up the two stories, but one of the things that in spoilers. If anybody hasn't seen this series of movies or read these bestselling book yet gay three to all right? So you've been warned. What you end up. Finding out is the resistance that catnip. Aberdeen is a part of a false flag operation. And that the district that was thought to have been decimated by president snow has been in existence. All this time in his actually who is running. It just went underground. And it's actually running all the resistance against president snow, and it's run by a woman named alma coin. I believe is her name and. She actually her big issue with president snow is not that she doesn't and she, you know, rallies around the flag covers herself and patriotic imagery talks about freedom and liberty in Oliver speeches. But when you get down to it big issue is. Her and her people want the levers of power to work for them and their interests instead. Did they have this animal farm that the hunger games, a retelling of animal farm, and they look for MandA pig. Pig demanded back to pick again. And they couldn't tell the difference and the true patriots. That cat nece ever, dean, inspired. We're being used as pawns the entire time. They were used they basically cynically rallied them on their virtue and principles. In order to help them acquire power that snow had taken away from them many years ago, and that they just wanted control. Instead. It's on some level. I'm not using this as a pejorative, but as descriptive. They were useful idiots on some of the patriots patriotism was such. They weren't wise as serpents. Yep. And so what happens is ever seen originally goes home? Which is such a metaphor for conservatives. Voting. Republican get all worked up all worked up. We gotta vote Republican Republican get him in the power, and you're like. We voted fifty times to repeal ObamaCare. Why aren't we doing it? Why are we still giving money to Planned Parenthood? Why are we doing temporary tax cuts? Right. This just the common, but we've had these conversations for years. This was just the the version of it. We had after the last time we gave them power. And a lot of times. Just go home. You know, what I did my job? I've Oded we got rid of the bad evil lefty guys. Professors president's nose gone. I did my job whatever they're going to do whatever they want to do except in this movie. She decides at the end. Shaneco going out like that. It's got to decide since she's the one that, you know, made the mess to clean it up. So stakes mcquaid out. That's what she does. That's what she does. She says, you know, I'm not going to be histories punk. I'm not gonna be the next virtue driven by virtue. Patriots to be used by a false flag operation. Let's just completely hit a control out delete button. And that's why I think these movies are a metaphor for the relationship between conservatives and the Republican party. Well, that brings me to my next question. It's fascinating that you compare that movie to animal farm, and you hear the truth bomb at the beginning political parties may be the single most corrupting influence ever devised by mortal man, you alluded last week. I believe it was during our other discussion that this is what the founders it's the very thing they warned in hit the table about. And then they went off and formed. Yes, their own party. So in if there is none. Nothing new under the sun. All we have is the hope of who who who's our Catholic Caithness ever. Caithness ever ever? Forgive me. Whatever for dean gonna be to just throw. You basically have to throw the rules out the window to bring good rules are always innovative. But this is the greatest governmental enterprise of freedom ever devised by man, and we still can't win. That's what you're telling us with sister. Can't or won't. Here's the thing. We cannot win playing this game by their rules. That's just not even debatable points. The system by the system's rules by those who profit off of the status quo as it is. I mentioned last hour that we're gonna have this exit. Essential. Maybe it was even earlier this hour. We're gonna have the existential debate people like me, and you are audience the mini cattiness ever deans thought we were gonna have this this real Xs dental showdown and every time we go to have at the Republican party nicest in the back. Well, the Republican party is irrelevant is in a relevant mechanism in this exercise now because professor snow's not hiding now he is out in the open. There's no patriot. He is this is an open conquest now. And too many of your credits, you're getting this. I mean, there's a reason the last two candidates for Donald Trump and Ted Cruz at of seventeen person field. It was almost like most of you just started your vetting process with just tell me who the system hates the most. And who Fox News is trying to convince me right now has to be the nominee who's electable. And and and I'm I'm going with the against that. I mean, I remember going to DC in twenty fourteen. And was right after Joni Ernst runner her squeal at. I was having meetings with conservative leaders in DC. And of course, everybody wants to know right away. Hey, what who's got an early read on Iowa. And I happened to mention right now, I mentioned a few names whenever I said, Ted Cruz is name visceral reaction. Like like, physical. Gorlic on doors signs of guys. I was with the conservative leaders in DC, and they're like, oh, I know. Tell me more about Marco Rubio, and Jeb Bush. And I remember I was writing for the Washington Times at that time. I came back home to the Moines I wrote a column and I'm like. The Republican party endorses. I finally started telling people you if I went back to Iowa and told them that the candidate most, I was Donahue Ted Cruz is right now if I went back to Iowa and told them, hey, this is the guy everybody in DC hates the most. We didn't the Iowa caucus right now. Because that's how much you're hated the most all of you here in district one the capital. So are people are getting this to an extent. Now, they feel hamstrung K. There's only so much. We can do. That's why there's so much open Donald Trump for a lot of our people. Because in their minds. He is a third party candidate in many respects. That's why they're not as upset about him talking about devante care. And and and, you know, family medical even in infrastructure projects that went past Republicans talked about him. They got upset about some of its coal tick. And we were one of the first shows to identify that. But there's another dynamic here too. Which is this guy will listen to me. And that's like rule number one. That's that's rule number one of a relationship. Do you care? What I think before we start before we start talking about the other things we don't agree on do. Do do you even care. What I think Trump does. That's why they give him more rope than Mitt Romney that they figured out doesn't care. What I think just wants to use me for a vote. Where John McCain, George W Bush who just nicer version of those guys. So are people are beginning to get that the argument becomes what is the alternative to the current system? Right. And that, you know, the book gets into some of that a little bit later on Erin health far are you willing to take the hunger games metaphor, analogy, whatever's more proper use in this context. How are you willing to take that? Because to the point doesn't get me fired. Because what you're talking about essentially is before something like, you just said, how far we've only go to or what what changes the system in order to actually have one that works for us and not the people who just want the power to have the system benefit themselves, which is the situation that we're currently. Ticketed. There's going to be a lot of bloodshed. If you take that analogy far enough metaphor. Let's settle in on that word if you take that metaphor from the hunger games far enough because that mocking Jay that was that was one win that was when battle victory, but the war was just starting and in that metaphor as well there is a lot of bloodshed. And if we are in the same situation where it is too late to actually have the system work for us because they're just pitting us against each other for their own benefit. Then I don't see any other way. And we talk about the we talked about this extensively of the last couple of weeks. The Archduke Ferdinand moments. I don't I see any any seismic shift in the way that our system works. And we we need to be very sober. When we have this conversation because we don't we don't want to throw throw terms like these around willy nilly, obviously show, obviously. So we are getting very close to the moment. I believe and from what I'm hearing you say I can make no other other conclusion that we are getting very close to the moment where there will not be a solution. Final solution to what we see is the ills of our society, and our culture without a lot of bloodshed. You agree with this disagree with that? On on this conversation. I I agree that if we don't see revival. Civic, or spiritual, and or spiritual that is likely how this will end because that's history of said before there has never been a peaceful transfer of values and and personal assets on an existential level within a culture in human history. And there won't be one in this one either, right? The reason we're having these conflicts, you wanna know why they arrested a woman. For getting a pronoun wrong in London, but they won't do that in Birmingham 'cause they own guns in Birmingham. Let me the reason we have these conflicts is because the American left pushed to turn us into western Europe before they confiscated the guns and the church completely shut itself down like what it did in western Europe. Where you know, some of the great Catholic churches of yesteryear are now mosques and two percent of the population of France's evangelical there's little resistance to this. And even there they have uprisings in the streets. We had those late last year. Remember, well, here, we got a lot of guns and a lot of church goers. So there's going to be a whole lot of people who weren't just going to instantly say, yeah. Dawson Donya America. Okay. So our founders anticipated this, and they gave us elections. So that we would use them to fight civil war in America. That's what they are. Elections are supposed to be how we conduct civil war in America. So that we don't have this spill out on the streets like has happened in every other civilization. You're going back to Sates. And that's this book is to be the prequel to that. Yes. But, but we are side doesn't fight them that way for many of the lies. We bought that. We do this for a spree core. We need the more Republican. We we do all these things we buy every lie that screws us in the end. And the the only in the proof of this is we're going to finally get the showdown many of you want it all these years, and you're only gonna get it. Because the Democrats are forcing us the Republicans would cut any deal imaginable. They would do and the St. and register twenty million illegals to vote democrat forever tomorrow if they could. Democrats like twenty million enough. We want fifty million. In fact, we just won't perpetual open borders, and you know, anybody gets to come and vote whatever they want how they want however, many times they want and if you don't allow that you're a racist. So the Democrats are gonna give us the debate. We've all wanted Republicans to have our behalf all these years. They were never interested in because they K street money is so damn good. You're gonna get it. Now. So if understand if we allow this thing to get to the point that a devolves to errand talked about we failed because our founders gave us every mechanism. They don't have in the hunger games. They were have free speech, then have religious freedom. They don't have private gun ownership. They don't have the sorts of things we were given was passed down to us to avoid this moment happening. Free and fair elections. They weren't giving those things. Well, we we allow that to happen as you said because the title line number one, the Republican party is our rightful home. Why do so many on whatever the right is hold that as their Trump card instead of freedom and liberty is my rightful home. Instead of the church is dollars of a party. That's why I just wanted you to say that's why that's why because they and they be. This'll be seen. Yeah. We will get to this much more detail in a lie later on. But there there's too many of you give the Republican party more flat than you give their own children when they act out. Something's not right about that. Chain. You don't have a relationship with the Republican party anymore. Then you have a relationship with your mortgage lender. Your mortgage lender just happened to be the one that approved you it's a transaction. And that's what the Republican party needs to be purely transactional have relationship with people. You know when you love and love you back. This is transactional baby. Hey, if you're running low on energy, I have to suggest I I use this all the time. Houston when I got back from Dallas.

The Curtain Call, Part 2: Steelers free agents, Should I Stay or Should I Go?

"Pittsburgh steeler france. We are back talking about who's coming. Who's coming back to the steelers next. Go back still. Current dot com joined is always the fabulous. Jeffrey benedict. Defense is all about compliments. Now we've got to build each other up after that the terrible playoff performance. That's what it comes down to but defensive side before even talk about any players should the steelers invest even like a single draft. Pick in the end of this defense. They're full of draft fixes. It is should the steel like is it time for them to focus completely a on offense when it comes to drafting guys. I don't think you see a first round pick unless unless all the offensive linemen are gone. Then i could see it. Probably a few. You're gonna have some defensive backs you got to replace you know this year at least one next year. Some more they're pretty. they're pretty good shape. You probably need another outside linebacker just for your number three but other than that mostly offense but i think you'll see you'll see more balanced than a lot of people would like i know we all. We all tend to do that. Like the offense. These works so just draft ten players on offense and trade back and get all the and maybe some of them are good But that's how the steelers ever work the no matter how much we want them to like. So they'll they'll get a good but there's not a lot of there's not a lot of holes on defense speaking of big holes but depre- that's that's a massive one to try to fill if he goes but of course coming off the acl Be worth a little bit more or a little bit less which might benefit the steelers. He someone you look at a sack totals in the house developed in you. Watch the film and how you rexha game. How is a game changer. It would really suck if the steelers lost this guy. Is there any world where he is back in the black and gold next year. I don't think there is and this is the sad thing. This is the sad thing you know this. A huge duprey fan. Anyone who knows me from behind the steel curtain. I have been a bud. Dupree apologised when he was considered a bust. I have been like no. He's actually better than you think. It just doesn't show up in stats. let me. Just let me just in honor a budgie pre. Let me give you some numbers here all right weeks. One through twelve weeks bud dupree played. Are you ready for this steals at forty one sacks almost four game they average almost four game three point seven three a game seven of their first eleven games were under a hundred yards rushing allowed as over sixty percent of the games. Sixteen percent Interceptions in eleven games as one point four or five interceptions per game and they had a seventy one point five passer rating against sense bud pre was injured and was no longer on the field. And i'm alex smith fan. I think he's good. You can get into him But they had fifteen sacks those games that's two point five per game over a sack per game lost once bud dupree one out. They had one of six with under one hundred yards rushing allowed. They arrived rush. One hundred rushing over eighty percent of their games before it was thirty five percent of their games. they had two interceptions in six games. That's one interception. Every three games instead of one and a half as interceptions per game average and they had a ninety two point nine passer rating against but do pre makes a huge difference on the field. Much bigger than just his stats. He is a phenomenal player. He is the guy who buys into team i stat. Second e. is that guy and whoever signs him granted it needs to be a team that runs a three four and ideally has a pass rusher at the other spot. A young stud pass rusher at the other spots that you're just like we want to turn that guy loose and we need the other side to be held down. Really well bud dupree dude. Before he was getting sacks he was keeping quarterbacks in the pocket he was limiting rushing yards. He was limiting passing short screen passes on his side. The dude is an absolute game wrecker. Who in the last two years has learned how to turn just being from a guy who creates havoc to a guy who can finish a play so for me. Bud dupree is my favorite steeler and this is it that was like week. That awful game against the ravens was the last that awful win against the ravens was his last time in a steelers jersey and that breaks my heart and I love you bud dupree and you're gonna terribly wherever he goes he's going to do it and i'm glad he's gone. I'm like it's depressing. That's the most depressing about this season. So yeah go say what you say. I'm a minute i thought that. Make you smile with that. Too new stocky comment but You know what. Bud dupree meant so much when he got hurt the locker room. After that rams game everyone was like down l. mansions over that. That's really how it felt. And that's what happened the interview. Like how could this deal's not bring this guy back like they not eat to find the money to bring him back. He means too much to this team in october. They bring him back. I'm gonna be like freaking out. Like i'm going to be drunk for a week. I don't even know like it's gonna be crazy for me if they don't see. I'm getting my hopes up right now. I'm getting excited. No he's gone. He hits he's just gone people. If he comes back we would have the best theory. We'd have the best We'd be so good with alex. Smith outside legit. Let's let's move down. Smith exercise with really quick. This is why bud dupree has got the reason. Bud dupree has gone is because alex highsmith is legit. Alex highsmith is legit. He was a rookie this year. There was a lot of drop off. He did not work. Well with cameron heyward when they moved into the other side. He'd work was the steph onto it. He just doesn't have experience with those guys but by himself is individual talent. He is a really good player. He can do the things bud dupree gave them. He's just not at bud dupree level especially right now. He's not quite the athlete. Bud dupree is. He doesn't give you that Quarterbacks are gonna escape the pocket more. We're going to deal with that again. You know with bud. Dupree came in the steelers. Stopped giving up yards to quarterback scrambling. It just stopped happening That play against miami and the playoffs will continue to be when favorite place ever or their quarterbacks. Like i can just run out of the pocket. Bud dupree no. Oh you out of the pocket. I'm going to run you out of the game. And it's like it's like quarterbacks you see it like they just don't leave the pocket because bud dupree is there and he's like come on. Come on out here. Come on guys come out. And they're just like no it's okay cam heyward can fall on me. That's fine. i'm not leaving this pocket and having bud dupree like send me into next week. And that's Was a steeler fan. You gotta love that. You've gotta just love that. So but alex is the real deal. You have to let bud dupree go simply for the fact that where the snaps like. You can't play these guy sixty percent of the snaps you can't. Tj watt sixty percent. You can't play bud dupree sixty percent and you can't play alex smith sixty percent. You can't do it. They're all too good bud. Dupree has to go and that's awful. It's sad but that's what happens when drafting alex highsmith. You let. that's why you drafted outside. Smith he has lived up to expectations. More bud dupree gone. Let's move on from no one one more question. I'm sorry ono. In hindsight in hindsight would you have given the cam. Heyward deal to cam heyward before the season started. Or would you let cam lock this offseason in order to keep a depre- in the black and gold see. Now you're gonna cam still can't hayward cameron heyward is. He is the heart and soul of that defense. You look at him after that playoff loss when he came out and talked about how the defense failed. That man is a steeler. You know what i'm saying. That may and gets it. And he is the exact guy you want leading this locker room. My favorite the best interview show on in the world is bud. Dupree show bud buddy interview with cam heyward. It's phenomenal how he ribs cam. I love that video. I watched that periodically. It's the best you know what. Yeah you gotta go cam heyward. But wherever bud dupree goes i salute you. You're still my favorite steeler until you the day you leave your my favorite steeler. You're going to be one of my favorites steelers of all time and wherever you go. Tear the league up please. Don't go in the afc north speaking speaking that cam heyward being huge leader thing. The that's what the offense needs a out of one of its skill players. You know what i if anyone could be that like. That's a rookie. I've watched not nausea harris. Speak a lot in press conferences. He is a good dude. He seems like he's a passionate dude. And if he if he can be what hayward is to the defense as a leader. Then i'd be all for drafting him in the first round who you know who was cameron heyward on offense jerome bettas. Absolutely the man and the team just rally behind him. That was it was crazy how much he was loved. If you could find that that's worth the first round pick of it's a running back that's worth lately. Harris if you if the if the steelers that dude no-brainer. Yeah twenty four. I don't think it's the combine that would get him picked. It's what he does interviews with the team is. It's what would make him pick by the steelers at twenty four If he's that good of a leader who knows if even last twenty four it's going to be one of one of the things to watch and see us as non insider types. Obviously we know a ton about this team but not the day to day operations. No one's ever really gonna know until years later when guys are retired and write their own books sort of thing. I don't get good film on isaiah. A harris broadcast angles are terrible for evaluating people. I don't get The all twenty two. I don't get that With college guy so. I can't really break down. But if he's a nick chop if he's a nick chubb for me. That's a no-brainer. Take him in the first round. Because nick chubb would have had over a thousand yards on this steelers team and the offense would have been substantially this year. This dealer team with the injuries the offense they ran nick chubb with a gain. Two thousand yards on this team. That's just. He has that level of vision connor and sell just beyond what connor and snell can do. He's just that much better. If he's a nick chubb talent wise and he kind of interviews. Yeah go for it. And he's he is division guy. So i can definitely see that. He's the big time sees the whole but moving back to the defense back the. Yeah the like. It's so much fun to talk about. The offense though. Middle linebacker is gonna be really interesting. Of course roberts planes in our fay. I think we can both just guarantee he's coming back at the steelers won one hundred percent if they are. They somehow did that. You'd be like who has taken charge of the steelers wired vita they love the cleveland browns now on on the same note though of course devin bush is going to be going to be coming back. Changed the defense completely way. Better instantly with him back on the field. There's two guys that are really interesting vince. Williams who's under contract. He could be a guy that could earn the steelers some money back by cutting him. He's definitely like a heart and soul type but is he the linebacker for the modern. Nfl aleve that hugh. But the other guy. Avery williamson who they traded for. He's still the the bulk tackler. He's the guy that just gets guys. Down i think the pairing between every williamson devin bush would be one of the premier inside duos in the league. So i'm curious. Your thoughts i if it came down to being able to bring williamson back and if that meant cutting vince williams and say that saved you million bucks would you do that. Is that something you'd be interested in or is this vince. Vince williams linebacking group. No matter what yeah. i'm going vince. I'm events fan Let me let me get you some stats on devon bush here because people people think about about vince williams From what they've most recently saw which was him getting exposed and coverage a lot. But let me get you. Some numbers here vince. Williams in the first six weeks five games played right two sacks ten tackles for loss and three. qb hits in five games. that's on pace for like six and a half sacks thirty tackles for loss like are you kidding me. He was like at the front of the league at that point after devon bush left right after he was gone. Vince williams had one sack four tackles for loss and one. Qb hit in ten games ten games. That's the different Difference devon bush makes this defense early in the season people were like devin bush. He keeps getting beaten coverage. He's an all these crazy assignments. What are the steelers doing with him. And by the way. Vince williams the best linebacker in the nfl and devin. Bush is gone. Vince williams have actually play like in coverage and things and they're like ooh vents out devin. Bush is going to be back. And if he plays a full season vince. Williams is as much is like you. You say avery williamson would really let avery williamson would let devon bush. He's a playmaker. Devon bush was as a rookie devon bush who he is now who he was in. His second season is better than that. Guy better than. He wasn't his rookie season. And he let vince williams be that playmaker his speed to the ball. His ability coverage is ridiculous. The stuff they were doing with and we talk about like the defense ended up getting pretty boring and vanilla and predictable at the end and teams are able to solve it. What they were doing in the first five weeks like people didn't understand what they were doing. What are they doing with with devon bush and when you look at it. They're really like he like my tallinn's drawing like derrick brooks type of stuff from tampa bay. He's doing that kind of stuff. Devin bush was playing like derrick brooks level. Nfl football as a second year player in the nfl. And vince williams. Animals gonna add in. Mike hilton also had phenomenal early stats. He obviously was injured. Came back from injury. Didn't do the same thing but he was also phenomenal while devin bush was there. Devon bush is going to be in coverage. She's gonna be that dude. You're going to see vince. Go off again. If devon bush is healthy and back in and who he was in his second year. So i'm going vince. Williams absolutely want percent. Okay now before we get to any of the backups. On any linebackers we got. We got some other positions. We should burn through. I most notably the two corner spots the to starting corner spots. Those are the guys that the steelers could potentially cut and save a decent chunk of money. If that's the road they go. But on the flip side. I think the steelers the steelers fans no steelers fans at least now. The steelers cannot draft a corner worth crap. They cannot do it for whatever reason. I think the best corner. They've ever drafted. Taylor was ike taylor like this amazing elephant corner. No i don't know if you've ever made a pro bowl actually like it's one of the things like this team. The way they built their cornerback room right now was smart by just doing it through free agency. Could this deal is be bold enough to cut either. These corners like are both heynen nelson coming back for sure next year because of their inability to find other guys with as. We talked about drafting quarterbacks. I'm going to bring up one of my favorite little tidbits of information. Sorry to hijack the show for the time But the steelers defensive backdraughts were went. Dick lebeau was gone. This is the craziest thing. Dick lebeau left the steelers to go be the head coach of the bengals. Right he left. He came back in two thousand four. He left in nineteen ninety six in that span of time. The steelers drafted ike taylor toy paula. Malu chris hope and chad scott the best defensive back. They've drafted since then. Ready for this william gay. That's it like in in a short span of time. They have all these guys and then boom. They couldn't draft again while dick lebeau was here the first time their best d. while he was defensive backs coach or defensive coordinator the first time their best defensive back they picked was willie williams undersized guy drafted in the fifth round their best sense william gay fifth round draft. Pick undersized guy. that's that short. Little gap in between they were very good. Steelers should never draft a cornerback. Again look at justin lane. I know i know he's got a thing with us already but justin lane. I'm sorry ain't that dude you're just not that dude james pierre took your job So yeah don't draft anybody. Don't sign them free agents For me nelson and hayden when they're gone this defense socks like when they are both gone. This defense is terrible. one of them has gone. It's not as good hayden nelson. Last people i would. I would cut everyone on offense. I cut vince williams. I would cut cam. No not cam heyward. I've got to it before. I would cut hayden or nelson find a way to make it up. Don't get those two guys gone and frankly a lot of arguments you see where you would let one of those guys go. You're saving that money already to spend it to sign sutton or hilton. Who are not at that level. They are not a hayden they're not a nelson and joe haden look. He's not who he wasn't when he was younger but he every game he's gone. This team just gets exposed on the right side in pass coverage absolutely gets exposed every single game hayden is out. Hayden is still that dude so for me. Those who have to stay. Do you think either of those two could be getting an extension. Because i believe they're bolstering the deal to gay just as money. I'd extent hating. I extend him a couple of years. Nelson more questionable. It depends on if you can replace him Hayden his in. This defense is perfect. Like when i when. I broke down film on how this defense evolved last season. They put so much on. Joe haden with with one qualification. Joe haden has one qualification to his game and that is he's deep or he covers short and that's it that's the only qualification you have if you give him that. Like joe haden your job on this. One is to cover deep. He's phenomenal. if you're joe haden your job on this time is to cover the short area. He's incredible if you're joe. Haden lockdown this guy. No matter what route he runs he can be because he's just his speed. Isn't there right. He's not as fast as he was when younger. And that's it. If you give him that one thing he is phenomenal. If you give him just part of the field to cover locks it down love. Joe haden is a playmaker gotta stay. Yeah i agree. I completely if they cut him. I'd be pretty upset by that. That would be a sad day. In my household i will not lie. But we're going to more corners here. Mike kam-sun a really feels like they're gonna come down to one of those guys and going back to that jerry dulack report that i've been talking about a little bit today. He said between the two he said it's not hilton. Who'd become back which was a little surprising to me. But that's the steelers insider guy. I'm curious to know your thoughts between those two. Who would you bring back. would you bring back either. Would you bring back both like w- what do you think in there. That is interesting that he said sutton over hilton because like mike hilton. Mike tomlin football. Mike helton plays mike tomlin football. He is exactly mike tomlin. Do like that is mike tomlin's definition of a defensive back. I'm a big fan if they lose my hilton. Who's taken that role who's blitzen. They don't have another defensive back who can blitz trail edmonds. can't blitz like my hilton. Ken i might kill them was a beast early in the season before his injury. And there's your qualification. One hundred percent if they're looking at him after that injury and be like mike helton's not mike helton anymore. He's not gonna be that dude he's going to be a bit slower he's going to be a bit less and it's just not going to work out then you gotta go sutton For me mike helton in that slot blitzer role which has become a very valuable commodity in the current nfl. Especially with a lot of the motion. We use a lot of the outside. Plays jet jet sweet stuff like that. A guy like mike hilton is a really important piece to have on your team. I don't know if maybe that maybe the idea is he's going to fetch too much and there's no way we can pay him and cameron sutton is going to be cheap. Because who's gonna cameras wanting to be a starter. They're not you know. He's not that dude he's not a starter he's a great backup he's a great rotational guy. i'd love to have them both back last year. I said there are the top we have the best top for. James spear makes one expendable and to me. That could be either of them. That could be either of them But i will warn you if it's sutton sutton it comes back. He is not going to overtake mike. Hilton's role in the nickel. They're have to redesign the nickel defense if they do that. If you're number three corner your nickel defense isn't what it was and it's not going to be as good because sutton cannot blitz. He's terrible at it. he's absolutely terrible at it in run support. He's not good. He's passable. he's not good. He can make tackles. Yeah you can do stuff at times. But he's no mike helton. He doesn't read the run lanes he doesn't read it like mike helton does he does. He just doesn't cameron site and cannot be that dude he's a great coverage guy. He's kind of that. That jack of all trades master of none And if he does have the strength it is just straight following guys deep even even like if he replaces if he replied to me he he is the guy that would let you let nelson go because he can be that guy he can be steven nelson. He can't be joe haden. When nelson's out cameras sutton can fill that role. When joe hayden's out and camera something goes in the right side of that past events exposed. Because he can't do it hating us So for me. I guess. I'm backtracking a bit. I'm saying you could see sutton brought back in nelson like oh that would be an option for the steelers will happen Whoever they keep going to change things. 'cause you losing hilton hurts the sutton hurts to. I don't know that's that's a hard one for me. I go back and forth on it constantly. Yes that's going to be one of the things. I don't think anyone blitz is in the. Nfl michael does. I think he said who's the best blitzing defensive back like hell. Yeah the two thousand nine hundred. Logan ryan was close to that and he wasn't this anymore they use them differently so moving on. We got a little bit of time left. So let's hit up a couple other backups before we look at a little bit of special teams but when it comes to outside linebacker spots like it could be the four spot could be the fifth spot tomei Denny or cassius marsh com ogden. E- e okay. I learned how to say his name. So i say get denny dang yeah olasunkanmi adeniyi. The only is i cake on. This is off any was number. Two in special teams snaps number two on the team behind only jordan dangerfield who by the way is also a free agent So it's another year where your top special teams guys are. Free agents like last season i could see olah brought back. Because of that. If he's cheap but he was nothing on defence like he played a lot of snaps and he did nothing. Great dude like he gives good effort he just. He's not that guy. He's a college defensive end. He is not an outside linebacker. But he's he's reliable on special teams cassius marsh. I like him better on the field than than i like him. Better on the field So for me. I would bring back marsh of those two which which again leaves you another lurch with special teams 'cause There and g. Ron elliott right. He's he's gone again. But i mean you assume you won't be back but then last year he was back and like who knows he's he's that guy that the can just be like. Hey jay ron. You're you're playing. You won't play football again. He's like sure yeah he he's just going to the person you call and there's no one else left to play for you but it of feels like but just flipping over the special teams as we round out our podcast here chris. Boswell someone steals could restructure even save a million bucks in the cap jordan berry. He had probably the best year of his career in two thousand twenty are both those guys destiny comeback jordan berries back. I you know. I like having a salient on the. I like that It just kind of nice kind of we could find another one steelers. When was the last time. The steelers had a good partner. I mean for goodness as we drafted daniel sepulveda's uneaten workout. Yeah that do do draft crush the steelers grabbing. He had these incredible hang times and then he just gets hurt and can't do it ever again. It was ridiculous. But yeah. I think thornberry's upon her. I don't care if he comes back. I tell you what there's another opponent that could be drafted crazy high. The kid from miami. I can't remember his name but could be a partner that goes in like the first three rounds again. Then that'd be great. I hope. I mean if you're not really bad maybe he brings you value. I suppose i suppose but looks like we're at top of the clock jeffrey. So i think it's time to sign up but we got we got. We got when we got. We got cover. Who's that when we didn't get to the defensive line. Oh who i miss. Tyson allow guy. Cover him real quick. Go for tyson alu alu. I think he's gone. But i would love to be back. I mean like he's that guy he's he has been so good in that role he's not going to give you a ton of snaps when he has played on east apps he's not that great But when you limited snaps noise to come in and just brek people's face he's comes in erects people's face And i love that. I love that about him. So i hope i'd love to see him. Come back but you also move on with him. Though one of the things like it bugged me. I if if i was in nfl player. He's one tackle away from four hundred his career just bog me. Three ninety nine go. yeah i'm done. Whatever that means nothing to me bringing back that would bug me substantially. It'd be like no. I'm going to come back the second oldest player on the team behind. Ben exactly that like go with her one you one more year for tyson al. I guess we'll have to wait and see but as as we get to the end of our show. Is there anything else you you wanna plug in throughout their by new film room series that i'm gonna take to get me through the draft. I look through it. And i'm gonna go through. I think a great thing. I don't know i don't know if people latch onto it but i'm going to go through the entire season one week. A time Tomorrow is week one. I'm gonna pick a player. Maybe two depending on if they play right next to each other And and kind of look at the steelers what they did right what they need to do looking forward to next season and for game one new york giants week one of the two thousand twenty season i go back look at benny snell's only hundred yard game of his career so far Why he got there and what we can take into next season. It's really good It's largely about the offensive line because he saw it wasn't just one hundred yards this the offensive line. So that's a great. That's a great one to look for And i'm gonna continue that series with week to the week after so each week is going to go. We're going to go for us. Seventeen weeks on that. We found. Yeah looking forward to that for sure for myself Make sure to click over behind the steel curtain dot com. Tomorrow i should have an article up on trae lance that fit that mock draft that.

Johnson american mathematician. Now you will recall creek also known as katherine johnson. If you recall the movie hidden figures she was one of the characters are main characters that believe her role was performed by toroshin p. Henson well criolla katherine johnson. As a mathematician she was one of the few african american women that were employed by nasa and their role were critical to the success of the first us spaceflights so these women were phenomenal and a little bit about the movie hidden. Figures which was based loosely based on the movie was loosely based on the book it was a book i Before it was a movie and the book was actually written by african american author. Margo lee shuttling and Margot was actually. She's a nonfiction writer. She had a previous career as an investment banker and with media startups. I think she'd be really interesting in wonderful person to speak to someone. I'd love to speak to but the movie was a phenomenal and disrespect to all of those women who are will earn earn the recognition in their roles in us history and in women's history african american history. So you know that's that's a home run all the way around so again yes we are. We're doing at this month and there's so many things that are coming out and giving all women recognition and you know including women of color so some women that are making history And this is in the united states. Of course are mvp. That would be madam vice president kamla harris so that is phenomenal. we have a laguna pueblo.

Big up big up to the bay her. Who won the grammy for. I can't breathe which was honor to George floyd and his family and so that was awesome also as a new artist and very talented and then i would not Not at all exclude beyond say pours queen. Bee she percival. She's the winner of twenty eight grammys but a she won. Four grammys In this year just the other night and Particularly for black parade which was written by fiance and a kill known as kill king or king fresh and it was released in twenty twenty and it was all about celebrating black heritage and june teeth and one of the things that i really honor in. Just recognize wanna recognize beyond saying for her work in and what she's doing it just being cautious mindful and you know Hate to be redundant with word that i will use beyond woke okay. 'cause walk to cliche i think when you're when you're really Woke you need to be awake continuously. Okay that means you're continuously doing the work. But she's express that as an artist her duty and responsibility to off uplift and encourage her community and and women and young girls who she knows looks up to her and she is doing a phenomenal job with her own blue ivy. Oh not at nine years. Old is the one three youngest persons to ever win a grammy and she did the other night for brown skinned girl. So i'm going to pick up to everybody in all the grammy winners. Big up to a blue ivy girl. We look forward to what you have in the future. You are feature and to the queen. Bee just awesome for just just being a wonderful leader in you. Know she already knows she's a dealer. She's a she role amongst xiros. Okay so that's what's happening in women's history month and it's gonna keep going y'all so moving right along in the world of social media as well when sailing down the information highway in my merry way to nowhere minded my own. Mary busy ness. I made a right turn and suddenly. I found myself on a corner of instagram. St and facebook avenue. And here's what. I found trending. Well y'all the latest is star of the current season of the bachelor met james african american male and the first black men ever on the bachelor. Well he was on television in after show the other night and he broke up with his selected woman of choice his girlfriend at the time for period the're short period rachel connell. Who is caucasian. If you do not know connell is caucasian. Well in this after show met use that platform to end the relationship and in the reason he ended. Release jim this is a first not only do i african american male to ever be on the bachelor as star of the reality show but this is the first of breaking up with a woman on the shell and in addition to that he broke up with her for the reason which is the first on the show to the breaking all records because he discovered many things about ms ms. Rachel mess rachel. Ms rachel with a karen background but anyway she. There were many photos that surface all over social media of of connell attending these antebellum field theme parties. And she did this. They were in college. There were stories of other charge. Racial behavior statements and just insensitive of behavior on her behalf. Now these antebellum parties if you're not familiar theme parties where you know all the southern bales. They dress up in antebellum You know where in with petticoats and they do things that they did to celebrate The south in the ways of the you know competitors z. Am very proud of it. In fact now these parties issue is that these parties really honors in represents the symbols of the confederacy in his deep in the preservation all the historic southern society while at the same time downplaying and ignoring the their role in fighting to maintain slavery which was the foundation of the well in the ways in religion entitlements. Oh that southern very southern society so that might be extremely problematic. I think so one thing that the media in in television media and social media jumped all over this story. and it's new. It's hot y'all and They're having a field day with it. Listen you know Mister met james. I house to believe you know. First of all i am a believer of law. Love is blind. Love is colorblind. Things and i just have to believe that he chose this woman for for love down. Although i question anybody's intent other than to get pain in positioning by going on a reality show whether it's the bachelor whatever it is. I mean use that platform because you want whatever you can gain in profit from it. I mean socially in career wise etc. Okay so always questionable. Where whether it's true i just don't know in a matter of a few short weeks. All of a sudden urine some breaking dying bond love. it's questionable. so do i feel bad about what he's going through. Well if he's broken because he really loves her deeply in can't breathe. Maybe but i'm not convinced that that's the case it. I just think on both sides of the matter of opportunity in being on the show. Obviously he has a list. I'm sure just says she did the opportunities this presents for them and it just turned off of this was something that just turn foul you know. And if it hadn't been for leaking of that. I mean he could have found out but i think what's more embarrassing. The reason why he had to make that decision and break it off and use that platform on media because it was all over social media and we know the underbelly of the social media is that it has more damaging effects on a branding image then sometimes even television or reality so that really again because of that those opportunities her image just stepped all over his opportunities in so therefore if he has a publicist was yes. You get on that show. And you're you get on social media you whatever but you do it in a good form. That would be still an agreement with contract that you have with this shell. That gave you this platform for your own personal opportunity. Not about rs in that about love finding love but what you gain. Yes you do this. So we had to do that on on television in an broadcasted in that fashion just to save his own s which is his brand his career in whatever other things. He's got going for himself right. So i mean that's about it in a nutshell. Really you know mr matt james. Wish you all the best Somehow they should tell you in a matter of just a few weeks hell in real life. You don't know somebody in matter of few weeks in new jump into marriage and there's still a whole treasure chest you know really actually a whole storage a whole block of storage spaces of a pass that you don't know. So how do you just jump in. I mean that the show would bright lights and camera. I don't think that makes true love. You know so if reality tv breaks up. Relationships is very seldom that the creative and You know i mean it happens for some People such as a homeboy from a love and hip hop in opera. Get their name right now. Out of new york jamaican brother In his his wife in. I guess you know they met on Love and hip hop in looking for them they were able to meet each other another reality reality show and you end up getting together and having a out making a family. They got married at a big you know. Put it all out there so You know all the more for him in in for her just right now you know. I see their faces. Think of their names anyway. So molly ride along moving on moving on another toil over that So what's next. Oh wow social media and media. Tv how can i forget the megan megan markle in prince harry interview the big interview. That occurred What a little over week ago occurred on sunday. This is kind of like the sequence of things there was the big b- big quote unquote to our interview oprah show interview with the world world Royalty megan markle prince harry on that was on a sunday by tuesday. Barely tuesday two days later on good morning. uk piers. Morgan are good morning britain. Excuse me pierce. Morgan gets on a show has a tirade. He invites coal co worker of to sit on a panel on the front and to have a discussion about what occurred in that. Discussion between oprah in the royals on sunday so tuesday. he has a tirade. Anne piers morgan offense everybody and practically everyone on the show co host particularly the Weatherman and then by wednesday on another show and television world on the talk. Sharon osborne insults. Her koto oliver co hosts by defending pierce morgan on the talk so we had sunday you know the the media has just been busting bridge bridges. So everybody's kind of losing it. So let's just back up. I'm not even going to dissect what happened or discussion about between oprah and making markle because everybody else is talking about. Listen what's her truth and always say people need to speak their truth. What's her truth is her truth. The issue is everyone thinking that they have the right to interpret. What's her truth. You and i would have a problem with that. If i made a statement you made the statement in everybody else has taken your statement made their own statement and said what you said is not what you meant but it meant all these other things now if you have an i have a history of being that type of person then you know in a in infamously known for fabricating lying and manipulating them bullying and lala that all crack. That's not the case. What's going on here. Is that everybody's trying to get inside this girl's feeling and interpret what she says and the people that whole are her foles against her are doing it more so than anyone else and a one of the first informal enwright right writes in front. Even front of the royal family in the in the uk would be pierce working. His britches are in a bundle really. So so i would just say the takeaways from this show. Besides the obvious was used. There's a lean green hub green accusation that there is racism in in buckingham palace. Now look young. We're talking in the accusation. Is almost saying you know is it. The queen is a prince philip prince charles. Who is it You know it's it's ridiculous to try to even figure that out. Don't bother either size of the argument. Don't bother. Here's why. Just as i just mentioned about someone who is not of royalty. Just come who has history or a in came out of the closet about their pass. Such as for example might just reason conversation about rachel per connell on the bachelor where these Engagement in at t bellum celebrations in who knows black-faced might even been involved and james mattis. James would protect her but the point is is that are any alerts shocked in all that that was her past and that she cased in that and it came out and for those of us a little more than commonsense who are not shocked in awe besides cells with our bridges in a bundle. It's not we're not simply because that behavior based on a background in commonality are commonplace. Historically in the us is not shocking. And we're talking about just common folk or not talking about someone of some great. You know multigeneration of enormous wealth like rockefellers and things like that. You would kind of like already expected. I don't even care what fair political affiliation is even if they said they were Republican conservative liberal or green party. It's unfortunate but to hear something like that. It's not shocking. We're talking about a family of many centuries and generations or royal blood. Just because things are obvious are said in the open people please. I don't care if it megan was red yellow blue plan. For god's sakes the fact is that you ain't one of us and when we have our families in our children in all these years of preservation of our rural society. We don't plan our future with diluting our blueblood so is it shock for thursday any stories any shock or disbelief around the question about whether certain things were asked. Her are harry or Prince harry excuse me core. There are racial tendencies. Please stop being naive. That's all i have to say. I'm over it now at the same time we're talking about. We compare the uk to the us. The uk has leapt in some areas. Socially far more ahead of the united states the uk is the country. One of many european countries that it conquered and colonized countries all over the globe right but at the same time united states being younger but being one of the worst in vile countries when it comes to humanitarianism and end discrimination and abuses. You know when you look at the no matter how you look at it. Bucay united kingdom was a place that typically around the sixties most places that they had control under the control of the monarchy had also received began receiving independence all around the globe india africa many countries in africa. The caribbean all older. The many places at the same time when you look at the. Uk's history you know or talking about we're talking about people in not policies around. Racism is two different things too. But we're also talking about a country that in about eighteen that declared slavery unlawful in abolished it whereas in the united states. It took us another thirty thirty years or sell to abolish slavery after a civil war had to happen in the death of the president killing of a president a murder the president. So you know we are there issues. Globally yes does the united states has have issues. Yes did megan experience. These things and to the point that she felt depressed and wanted to commit suicide. Well that's her story and if that's true that's what she's telling for people of that type of level of privacy to for her to even divulge that although she's american by birth and culture. She's obviously felt compelled that she needed to get these things off her chest in off her mind for her own mental and spiritual well-being. I hope that she really got a load off her shoulders. And the sleeping little better tonight. Maybe not as well as she was prior to divulging information. But i think that you know. She knows she's not along. She has gone. She has her prince and her family to stand strong for also a community of people that are supporting her globally. So like it or not. That's the story now. What's the story with pierce morgan. Just lost spit on that tuesday Good morning britain. Piers morgan Basically sparred with a colleague. Alex barris ford who is apparently biracial. He's a weatherman on with the network and they had a conversation in pearson invited him and there were about other. Maybe about another of or other persons you know might have been a total six of them for five anyway An engaging discussion in pierce Spoke his immediate. Colleague are co-host. Who's a woman really didn't even give her. The respect to even speaker comedies. Spoke all over her but clearly pierce morgan Who if you all recall about maybe eight years ago if that long ago but anyway was A winner on donald trump's apprentice and he and trump got a will so well got along so well and he ended up working for trump and then at some point he left here in. He landed this role or this job on good morning britain after the apprentice in working with truck. So he does a lot of leveraging a lot of leveraging in but kissing and sounding off. And i guess that's why trump liked him so much because he miracle him with his mouth an unjust unscrupulous mouth. So the so after you know going on good morning britain on on tuesday he insulted. He continued to go on his barrage. About how you know just criticizing in attacking and you know demeaning and tearing up you know attacking megan's character. Well you know some in alex. The the Excuse me but the The bi racial African mixed guy. He challenged him and he says you know he's really tired of it in over and over again pierce. All i do is here you attack megan and you make it personal and it was such a great spar golden you to and listen to it and but peers could not accept that when alex charged him for being you know that having something personal with megan because she never accepted him. Apparently the bay before or the day of meeting and being introduced to prince harry. She pierce continuously came across her somewhere in auto levels uk or canada and invited her for drink so she never gave him time day. They kind of went back and forth through a tax and finally maybe once or twice finally. She met him one time or drink and after that one time after that she met harry. She never talked to pierce again so every time that he would contact her for over the next two years. She never responded and On one of these shows someone got a hold to all the all the texts that he was. You know semi oh it would be nice and lovely for me to lease. Get an invite to the wedding. When he found out he complimented her and how brighton intelligent. Not only intelligent and sexy with these beautiful long legs and blah blah blah blah blah. He had a thing for her. And there's something about a little bit of color that as wave in the water you know and maybe it never had that aroma before him minutes is in a sense. His nose in his mouth tastebuds kind of bursting just wanting to case. He was filling her and she didn't have time day so he just kind of conceded that will maybe you know. At least if. I could just tap into the friend zone i will. Do you know Over the moon to be next harry and be a friend of hers and she had no room in no time no space. That hurt feelings so after that he eventually became bitter pierce pissy pierce and he went pissing all over her name in her character and it never stopped from there but win this gentleman. Alex breyer's forward the weatherman. The broadcast journalists approached him. And said you know y It explained he was defending. May in her Her comments in tax in conversation not attacks but our our conversation in reference to racism within the family and how she felt and he explained why it resonates with him because comments about being cocoa shades and different shades of black and blue and white. People feel entitled in confidence. Because you're a lighter shade of dark that means they can say certain things to you and it would be okay. He says that he was a recipient that of all the time and that bill people that say these things the white person's when they approach him in those ways and say certain things it has a steam sometimes it just straight out rigging hearts okay and he just wanted appears to be aware that his words have power. Pierce couldn't handle that he couldn't handle it. He was contemptible. His behavior was any can. Continue to congressional aggressively interrupt Alex until you know he he just cut him off from speaking in in Bears for being On a man of some class you can tell. It's obvious he let him have it. And then pierce went on his diatribe in you know. He kept asking questions. You know any trying to figure out what. What's the difference of asking a question if you think. The child is going to be a certain complexion or how dark the child is going to be. How what what's what's so different between the two. What makes one insulting is. Bears is just trying to explain. Well ultimately peers behavior and he kept saying you know Cutting off him to leading the bowed and going in a tantrum and meghan as she's a lie she's lying and that her comments about racism is centenary and and you know she just needs to stop loving about the royal family in etc etc. Said a will. He was so obsessed with this conversation. And when Alex accused pierce of making this being personal. And you know He couldn't take here's got so upset and he stormed out the show and he says i'm not putting i'm not putting up with this domhnall putting on a play with and he stormed out like a baby tantrum like baby trump tantrum and off the show. Who does that. He quit the show Obviously because he felt that he you know he's still conducted That he's got another show lined up with richard murdoch. Saw what the hell. I'll just quit. Can't take it now. The funny thing about that in the thing is with me as old why is pier so obsessed with her or them or what they have to say. So let's move forward a couple of days later. The mayor's sharon osborne she goes on a bit of an attack her attack. One thing you're offending someone making other people in defending them you don't even have to take that stance but that's what she chose. She chose to go on this attack and she told Feral her colleague Get sure last name but anyway sure underway she told cheryl underwood she says don't thought she don't use dot crying. Wow i found that to be so offensive. Because that was a loaded statement to cheryl underwood about her behavior and inability to have a discussion about race. If i say what i feel. That's what sharon osborne was saying anyway. move on so basically she Depend appears morgan. Saying look he's a royalties and he's fighting for queen and country for queen and country. She's been a very good friend to appears morgan. In she says kept repeating. That peers was very heart. Five megan and that she continued to go on and defend piers. Morgan look you know. She says the piers. Morgan has comes from a family who has served. Maybe within our world guards. Just you know certain wars and military over generations. He is a royal to do and die this kind of like a confederate doing die. God bless your heart. bus. Jihad's well with that. The conversation with osborne got so heated on talk that by the next day or the following day sharon went on twitter or social media apologizing that she had no intention of did not intend to offend any anyone and she did. She was deeply sorry in In anything she said if anything she said offended anyone you know this whole conversation around race and race issue is is so heated is so polarized in why it is wooded is but when you're come in a privileged place in entitlement in. You never had to really know what it's like to be marginalized and just even how a little understanding when a person of color experiences in says what they're hurt or they're paying the concern or whatever for you to question. It may be all you need to do is just listen understand. And you don't have to get in your feelings about their experience. Not yours in the empathize. Are your coal harder than you. Don't you don't care and that's okay. People do whatever the hell they want all right but the truth is the truth in rawlins look good. It tastes good. It is what it is factors back and so unless my two cents on that so anyway i just want to move on and just recognize Before we close out there were a couple boxers that that pass will actually still in february leon spinks past. He was a former heavyweight. Six seven years of age but more recently is a marvelous. Marvin who was always a man who was in great shape never abused drugs or anything like that and In recently i understand that he was just you know the epitome of of Fitness is so He passed. And i believe that it was Due to What is it cold. It he was what was his age. He was about I think more of his marvel handler was was sixty six years. So if leon speaks was sixty seven and marlins marvin hagler was sixty six. You look at them. You can see a really fit man but And i think only rumor that it was a complications due to covid. So you know just big up in rest in peace forever. All right. y'all so this is my Moving towards the end of my show and it's time for the h cube segment that is humor health and happiness. And i just want to start humor. It was richard pryor who said that all humor is rooted in pain that take the thing that is causing hurt. An and that that is blocking your breath. Dig that out in ad. That booker to the wall squeeze make lemonade. Whatever it is. It's time to start laughing. So i'm saying meghan girl. It's better to laugh than cry. So take that luger out lap and on the royal wall and keep it moving health now when it comes to help folks just think about it. Ask yourself a question. How often do you go to the dentist or doctor. Well that's probably about how often we should get a mental wellness checkup. One thing that megan came out in a conversation had to do with depression and with mental wellbeing. And it's not something to take lightly. I think we all kind of skipped past that but really hell is not just about your heart. Your blood pressure whether or not you got the sugar. It is about a mind okay and so if you really have any concern question feeling some type of way feel a little low. Maybe depress even if it's postpartum in need to talk to some bonnie. Don't stay isolated. It's a hell okay. And health is your wealth all right and then happiness trying not to get caught up with the bullshit such as the korea. Being great famous rich is all soccer. And that will rob the spirit. You'll rob you of your rest in your mind which is priceless. Let the eagle goal four day. The biggest thing you'll ever do in life is to find happiness in the simplest things another thing. Richard pryor said he said. I could be better. But i don't feel like being bitter be better makes you immobile and there's too much that i still wanna do so with that y'all take some time. Spend the week doing something simple. Not manmade take care of your age cube humor health and happiness actress sisley ties. Them was born in new york in nineteen twenty four. Her acting career spanned for more than sixty five years.

The Sedano Show [Hr 4]

"Final hour the program hanging out with us today. Always a pleasure, buddy. Thank you for hanging out. Thank you guys for hanging out at the events. We've had over the last couple of weeks at the tilted kilt and Gino yesterday at the commerce casino out of the plaza for before the games. It's been fun to see the fans and the support the show has we appreciate it. Obviously in a very short amount of time. It's cool to have that. So thank you so much before we get to Tyson Chandler, who by the way, if you miss Tyson Chandler, you can hear him at six thirty. We'll have that interview for you. He was on at around three thirty or so with me and Mason in Ireland during purgatory around three twenty so yesterday, I don't today's big election day, whatever. So yesterday, I found myself, you know, one of those nights where I just couldn't sleep. So I start what ends up happening is when I can't sleep. I don't know. How what you do and games are all over. Right. I can't you know, I'm gonna watch sports center for the third time or whatever it is. So out flip to the movie channels and yesterday. Came across the American president. Are you familiar with that movie is Michael Michael doug-? Right. It's a little bit of a rom com. I mean, it's a lot of Aram calm, but I'm a sap for a good rom com. I am I don't know about you. I'm a good Sasser of actually sure. So it got me thinking I had this debate. With a buddy of mine, I was telling him I was watching the movie, and he's like that's not even close because I said, I think that might be the best movie president ever in a non biographical film. Right. So not like frost Nixon or JFK or anything like that. I follow. So he was telling me, and I think this is just blasphemy. He says that the best non biographical president in a movie is Bill Pullman in independence day. And I'm like, are you out of your mind? First of all, I wouldn't take Harrison Ford on Air Force One before I would take Bill Pullman off my play Pullman likable, though in that in that movie. But yeah, a little cheesy. He's kind of like he doesn't answer. And is surely doesn't look very tough like Michael Douglas, and and Harrison Ford in those movies. I I well here's the bat, but wasn't he like flying a fighter jet like Dern what the aliens? Like that. Yeah. Was but he doesn't I don't know. He just he doesn't come across as someone way. When he does that spent he's he kicks ass. Guess like he eventually joined them in the fighter shut he's likable. But I I'm with you. I mean, if I ever seen Ford Harrison, that's very true. That's very very true off my play. Yeah. I mean there Morgan Freeman Freeman's been president if you're low he has a movie that he was present. What was the name of? I don't know. At least I think it was mortgage free. It was Morgan Freeman was absolutely. Oh god. No, no. He was okay. The president. He's one of the few people that have played both got he was in diva impact. Oh, yeah. That's right. President beck. I mean, if I could if I answer president Bartlett into the into the mix, and I get that that was a TV series the west wing, but still that was that was my favorite. They were going gonna go with twenty four with my guy Serano who was the president in twenty four. Of course, what was his name on the show on the twenty four. I forgot the name of how we're getting this. Dennis Dennis something real name Haskins. But has it. But was the show twenty four somebody'll show president. I just look at it. Okay. But what are we going to play the game that you hinted at about? Oh, yes. You wonder Chandler here? And then save that for six. Let's do let's do the game at six fifteen. So basically, there's an there's a lot of outrage in sports early in this week. There's outrage from trae C'mon who is just being an old fart about Michael Thomas, grabbing the cellphone clearly Kyrie is outraged about Joel Murray. And then the fans here in L A are outraged that LeBron for going to did he's party. So we're going to play a game called hold that L, right? Yep. Hold this L this else. So we're going to find out who deserves to hold this El? Okay. The LA fans forget on LeBron for duty. Is it kyri forgetting all mad at Jamal Murray. Or is it Troy Aikman forgetting all mad at Michael Thomas t Shah's nephew to me. This is a landslide. David Palmer, by the way. This is a landslide is how could I David Palmer? Thank three people at me up on Twitter by the Tyson Chandler. Look, it can't hurt is basically what I what I would say they needed somebody. When jail was out Java's playing way too many minutes. Tyson can give you fifteen quality minutes a night to Vail would argue that he's not playing with too many minutes, and he's been playing well in those minutes. But I hear just I hear what you're saying. If you expect them to keep that around a whole year that's up to do that level the plays that show. Here's the thing about Tyson Chandler, he still an unbelievable rebounder per thirty six minutes where I think that he doesn't help the Lakers as much as one would think too. Shout out to my guy on Twitter. I forgot his name right now who said I should say panacea. One more time. He's not a panacea when it comes to defending the rim. Like he wants was he's now. Okay. The only thing the Perth thirty-six stuff is always a little misleading kazoo only playing like his whole minutes. This year are so low, but his thirty six is ridiculous. It's fifteen point eight. But of course, that's the whole thing as a thirty six year old veteran who's been in the league since not gonna bench more than since two thousand one. Right. You know, and that's the same thing. I think your point defensively is he's not one of those centers who you can who James harden might want to isolate and go at one on one in a get him switched right onto him. And that's but guess what? So is of zoo butts. Okay. And I think zoos been really good last couple games. But like for. Yeah. But he's a Tyson Chandler. He's for a number of years offensive player that your candidate certainly help that maverick seem to a title. And I also think George you mentioned earlier in win horse alluded this a little bit as these Lakers are trying to figure it out figuring out in the locker room. It doesn't hurt to have sort of a a. A veteran that's of his type of presence where he can just mediate some well, and what's the the room? And that's I think that's like the coaches, I know are excited about it. Right. Because that's something that usually the coaches have to step in and do a little bit of that. He can do that now and as much as I think, you would tell you tell me about how the brain is in those situations. I think Rondo, you know, sometimes he can be great with young guys. But he also has this other part of his personality where he's fiery. So look when I was covering LeBron every day he had a room full of veterans. Okay. I mean on top of the fact that he had his peers who were the all stars in Bosch. And Wade he also had Shane Batty in that room. Mike Miller in the room James Jones in the room rang Allen in the room. Right. So there were guys that were veterans of veterans and you're talking about guys in like James Jones, who may not resonate a lot of people. But you're talking about a guy who was amongst the leadership in the NBA players association on top of being a specialist three point shooter. Mike miller. No had been a great veteran for a long time. Clearly, we know realities resume and Shane Batty. You know is the ultimate teammate show. I think that having that room was a little different because and not to mention they had guys like even you Don his has them, right? Who is a veteran. Rugged type enforcer type guy that Birdman and other enforcer type guy that was a veteran squat right? Then outside of Mario Chalmers. There really wasn't a young guy on that roster. And we can we go through the whole thing in Cleveland was a little different. But the point that, and this is why making the point about Chandler, though. He is the guy now like the brunt. He can be the UniteR the United in the locker room. And I don't think LeBron is so elevated with his play, you know, that that isn't. That's what his focus is going to be. And but now Chan there's focus can more be sort of can can be doing some of that locker room policing and personalities, and and I think that helps but you help Ron doesn't love to do that role in Cleveland because he had no choice, dude. He's got enough to do and Kobe. Do that either H why he brought Mike Miller and James Jones with him to clear here early. I as I was thinking has there ever been any of the top ten or twenty players, and it'd be history ever done that like, I don't think. So really there wasn't Jordan doing that. Corinne, wasn't doing that. We'll we'll be when I ever mentioned Kobe shocked. I don't know if Jack was doing that. I mean, this is this is the role of a veteran who's there, but doesn't have to worry about like the whole game plan of the other team and himself. So I I do think that Tyson in addition to plant some good backup minutes at that. Spot can also help a little bit in the locker room. So I like it. I like the move a lot John in Pasadena. What's up, John? Yes, sir. Okay. Yeah. I wanted to say that feel like. Lakers. Also like with the diet early about being Florida in the Lakers or point that will we give up to all kinds of rebounds. It was the sequence. No on the game on Sunday. We give often to rebound I feel like with another president just a big body. That knows how to rebound feel like we'll be in the right direction. The thing is. Yeah. It look. It can't hurt. John. Then there's there's any question about that. Right. Like, he there's no downside to bring him in. I just think that you have to have temporary expectations. When you're talking about a guy is thirty six years old. You know what I mean? But it's going to be a positive. I think more than anything else. Tom real quick. Go ahead. Tom. I think based on what a everything that Magic Johnson thirty some record about other coaches, and what Brian was even saying I think it's clear that he's gonna probably he's gonna hire. Typically, oh, he's on the record of like really liking tip it specific coaching style. And. The coach if he's going have anti gave it is the plan Timbuktu, coach Ewing and main me like their piece, you know, we're talking about and he's also part of a pet coaching. You can't can't discount that also. So I well, I mean kids is not really part of the Pat Reilly coaching tree. He's he's indirectly. Because of the Van Gundy connection, but no I don't see Tibbs being a Lakers coach, no no chance. I would see any of these guys before Tibbs Mark Jackson, or even Jason Kidd, which I don't think would be very good. I don't think Jason gets good coach any of those guys before Tibbs. No, I don't I don't see tips being the guy. A lot of outrage in sports who's going to hold that L. We'll tell you who's gonna hold this hail coming up in just a second. But first guys I got to tell you man, listen when you got the kids like, we do you gotta start young. You know, what you gotta do. You gotta tell them. Hey, right now, it's six fifteen. And sports fans. Get with the game plan is with your kids when you get home. Here's an idea for tonight. How about you? Do you kid you go grab a book before bed each tell me which book do you want to read who's your favorite character? Do you want to do a Mickey book Disney character? Do you want Clifford the dog character, and you read the book with them and every night you start to build this process? Whether it's a silly story, you know, whether it's singing a favorite song that the kids love this is what you need to do. And not just when they're older I've got one that's four newborn. You gotta sing to them. You've got to talk to them early. You gotta get their brains to move, man. And this is what I five does. So talking reading singing, it changes everything. So go to I five California dot com to learn more. It's what I do with my kids. It's what Trudell does with his kids. You know, Johnny Hecker of the Rams was on with us earlier. Sing speak read. Yes. Hawk all of it, man. It is super important, and I five will help you kinda get in that rhythm. Get yourself. A real plan with your kids. Go to I five California dot com to learn more show continues here on ESPN LA show. If you missed Tyson Chandler on with me Mason in Ireland during purgatory purgatory each every day from three to three thirty or on the station. That's what we call. Our crosstalk? You'll hear that. I like that funny. Name I came up with the name. I'll get myself a little Pat on the back. So you'll hear Tyson Chandler in ten minutes, the newest member of your Los Angeles, Lakers. And if you missed coach Lynn Anthony of the chargers who deserves some love. Okay, true down. I talked to him a number of hours ago very early in the show. I think it's worth listening to because I I just think they're stories cool and coach Lynn is cool. Like, he gives it to you straight. So it's a refreshing opportunity to talk to someone like that. Because not everyone gives it to you straight. Sometimes they give you the cliche stuff. You know, we're spoiled by guy like Sean McVeigh who gives it to us real too. So it was cool to have Anthony Lynn onto who reminds me a lot of Sean in that regard. I appreciate you buttering me up your gift, you gotta try. So it's time to play hold this L. I chewed out show hold. This L is very simple. There's a lot of outrage in sports right now. The first outrage is going back to over the weekend. So the Lakers lose to the raptors. Right. Lebron goes out to ditties birthday. Laker fans are all furious there peo-, they're not happy with the bra. How dare you Koby would never have gone out to duty night on a little bit of an overreaction the man's grown, man. It's eighty two games. And it'll be alright. What kind of what are your thoughts on the Laker fan? Overreaction. I know you have to tread lightly or potentially, no. That it's just that. I look I understand sort of passion vans. But in this case, I think we have enough of a track record with a brand James to not even blink a tiny tiniest. Bit of an I it's something like this more likely than not he just stopped by gave Diddy a hug, drink some water. Got back in his car went home. And now injury water. They'll come on. Let's be honest here. Get a wine guy. So clearly seven maybe. They had the day off the next day. But I could not be any less outrage about that. Yeah. I think if you're out wrenching about that. You just kind of need to grow up. That's nothing. Yeah. Gotta be honest with you all right next to us. Kyrie Irving so Jamal Murray who's on my fantasy team Jamal Murray. Yesterday had a big game in the last twenty seconds. He threw up two shots because he wanted to score over fifty kyri was all bummed out all bent out of shape through the ball in the stands because Guyer Korea to take his ball and go home. He was outraged. He ripped Jamal Murray. After the fact he ripped his own team Marcus Morris ripped his own team and rift Jamal Murray should Jamal Murray have been ripped would you have gone for the fifty if you were Jamal Murray is the outrage real I'm actually not on really an either guys side, okay in this one. However, if I had to pick I'll go with Marie reluctantly, I get it. It's tempting you wanna get your fifty piece you throw up an extra shot, even though you know, it's not the quote unquote, sportsman thing to do. However, the reason that I have a little bit less sympathy for Murray is that he did a couple of things last year to Lonzo specifically that were sort of below the belts, not cool. And right, Luke, Walton went after Murray. I remember Scott dribbled around him. Yeah. And it just too. So just based just doing kind of cocky stuff that is not appreciated, but he was awesome. Last night. He got wrapped up in the moment. I didn't mind it. I thought that for for vet like kyri to be throwing the ball into the stands in eventually having to pay. You know, twenty five grand for it that probably wasn't worth it to make a point about. I mean, come on, dude. Like, it's not that serious Curry's been through enough stuff in the NBA. But I don't know I get him sending up on principle because you were not supposed to do that. But, you know, not a big men than the last one is Troy Aikman show. Michael Thomas Keyes cousin. I'm sorry. Nephew nephew, doesn't it? Doesn't keys nephew scores. A touchdown. And he pulls out the cell phone Joe horn style, right? Had the flip phone in the pylon or not the pylon. I guess the cover for the the goalposts, and it was hilarious. Everyone on social media. Immediately knew what he was doing the doing the Joe horn Joe book and treatment had zero clue what he was doing or alluding to. They were just appalled by the whole thing. Aikman went as far as I believe to call it either a disgusting act or something the Ristic clearly called uncharacteristic. First of all just so you know, the wind probability in that situation after the fifteen yard penalty that was assessed to Michael Thomas their win probability went from ninety seven point six for the saints to ninety six point nine. So it the difference was negligible even on the fifteen yard penalty. 'cause they were up ten points. Troy Aikman to me. Just completely overreacted here. One hundred percents overreaction from Aikman. This to me is the easy winner of all of this out of these three. I cannot I cannot side of just enjoy it, man. Relax impact the game. Let them celebrate. What's the big deal sop? So the inaugural L goes to Troy Aikman soldiers L. Troy aikman. We'll get better at this segment. We'll have audio attached to it and all sorts of stuff to make it a lot more fun. And the promise that is a promise. We'll get to that. But hold this L. Troy aikman. You're an old fart. So Tyson Chandler coming up now at six thirty. Anthony Lynn at six forty five of the chargers. The newest member of the Lakers coming up next. Hey, small business owners, you know, that clear straightforward communication is crucial. So in eighteen says one thing and actually means another it gets really frustrating, for example, AT and T says they have fast internet, but what they really mean is basic internet was slow starting fees that can't keep up with your business Spectrum Business internet on the other hand starting speed is one hundred megabits per second much faster than AT and T and AT and T S. They've affordable small business rates. They mean that they'll add taxes and charge. You. Or for services you need. But when Spectrum Business says they have blazing fast internet for just forty four ninety nine a month and four twenty nine ninety nine a month. They mean knowing fees, no taxes, no contracts ever. And if you're stuck in in eighteen contract, don't worry Spectrum Business will buy you out search for Spectrum Business what they can do for your small business. Restrictions apply. Call for details. Mace tweet from James Furlan, no one loves themselves, more than Steve Mason. It's true me you love final twenty four done the same thing as Murray Norris spot reaction. There's no way respect the game. Are you respected him guy been Todd Gurley? I know I want to break the record for all purpose touchdowns. But you know, what the team I'm gonna Kalinin on a night where two women had a same bertish birthday party. You came out with a cake with just your day son frigging house they wanted birthdays. They should add. Tyson Chandler about the kyri gentlemen. Welcome to the show from Compton Dominguez. Hi, Tyson, Chandler, the newest Laker Tyson. Congratulations man, really happy for you. How you doing? I'm doing great doing great excited. You know, a lot of stuff that happened a real fast. But you know, feeling too. When did you find out about this this move to the Lakers? The talks with me started. I was there. So Thursday Friday. And then, you know, after that started, you know, to start thinking about, you know, where I want to go, you know, and I was you know, four or five teams, you know, kinda into makes him in. You know, I had to really go in my heart, and you know, total acres why the Lakers. You know, I love a, you know, I love I love, you know, opportunity to play LeBron, you know, in, you know, magic. And in rob. You know, I've been watching, you know, and I love what they're doing loved the young young players in the pieces that they're putting around the young players to not only, you know, try win now, but also grow, you know, for the future, and you know, I did love the dollar play in, you know, the energy that's around the lake show. I now, you know, it was something I wanted to be a part of Tyson Chandler with us. It has just been announced today. He is the newest LA Laker after agreeing to a buyout with the sons, he's agreed to a deal with the Lakers. Did the fact that this is home for you? You originally got drafted the clippers, but you never played here. Did that have anything to do with this? Because some guys think well, if I go home, it's going to be harder. I gotta get tickets for my family, and all my friends other guys think I'd love for a chance to play at home in front of me my family. How did how did this? Being home play into your decision. You know, really? I think is where my career, well, my my life. You know, I definitely those dogs before like, you know, planning. No, like, potentially be distraction. You know, you go your family, your friends, and and you know, all of that. But you know, I am in my life my career. Now, you know, I'm settled in you know, been there done all of that. And you know, for me, it's like, you know, plan out now is like, you know, my legacy, and, you know, ending of my, you know, much after, you know, in our to be able to come back, and and, you know, be a part of something that I think as a really bright future, you know, and getting ahead of steam. I thought that'd be awesome to come back and continue to where I started Tyson Chandler with us on ESPN LA Tyson. Laker fans know that you're on that great team in twenty eleven that just ripped through the playoff. You're knocked out. Kobe knocked out Durant. You're knocked out. Lebron? How is that Tyson Chandler that was on that championship team in Dallas different than the Tyson Chandler today? Are you basically the same player if you're if you're game had to change as you've gotten older? Fame player. But then, of course, as you get older, you get wiser, you know, you understand the game, you know, a lot better, and you're able to contribute in other ways. You know, this young out there you just run around and moving. So for me, it's the mental aspect of the game. I've been able to learn more, you know, I'm being seasoned. You know, I feel like I've gotten better, you know, thought to as John pointed out, you were a big part of the reason that team won that title against LeBron in twenty eleven how have you seen LeBron evolve? As a player from when you beat him in that finals to where he's at right now. Grown so much. I think I think I have to that final. You know, he really really start involve and chain to the game. Of course, you know, from the moment you step into into the league. You know, he's been one of the best players Lee, you know, and grown into the best player in really. But I think that time, you know, we saw some things don't film, but it got us some defensive plans to try to go out on in different ways. And then you know, the following year. He had none of those flaws. You know, clearly incredible student of the game, you know, continue to get better to get older, you know, and then I had opportunity to play with them, you know, on Olympic team in London. And I mean, I couldn't believe I'm winning better. You got you know, just in those couple of years. You know, he just I mean, he led the team he played one through five. God I want to five. You know, he led practice every day. Couldn't believe honestly what I was saying. And he was doing fresh off of a championship, you know, in Olympic and all of that is literally only, you know, weeks later, I couldn't believe the type of level. He was playing at you know, for that loan Tyson you played against this Lakers team last month. Knowing the talent in no-one sort of the the evaluation of the talent what are your expectations for this team? You I have high expectations to be quite honest. You know, because I I think the young players are very season. You know, I think the young players around here. Not very typical. You know? I watched you know, the pace they play the passion. You know, and and see what they've grown, you know, as a unit, you know, from from year one year to year three. And so just as being able to watch that, you know, I've been impressed with it. And I'm looking forward to you know, helping them and guide them insurance on my knowledge, I Tyson lasting now. You've been a Laker for about half a day here as your thirty minutes. Your has your phone already started ringing from your voice in Compton. Maybe some guys you haven't heard from in a long time. You know, these tickets with LeBron like willy Wonka golden tickets now has it started happening yet. When it was a rumor started happening. I didn't need to see the signature. They will. They wanted to get in line. Are you know before? So, you know, and it was just a rumor, and and and and I even know about the rumor when I started, you know, people already getting my line and trying to get on you know, when they can come in. And and give me a vice and tell me what the lake Mead better bring that dog and representing in all of that. So. Is all. We appreciate you coming on. Congratulations, man. Look forward to seeing you out there tomorrow night. Thank you. Thank every. I'm looking forward to getting out there getting getting a farce on out the way, and then, you know, starting to build really happy to have you, man. Congrats see you soon. Thank you. Appreciate it. I was Tyson Chandler on with us during purgatory purgatory each and every day from three to three thirty with Mason Ireland, and yours truly. So the newest member of the Lakers joined us they're coming up next chargers. Head coach Anthony Lynn the chargers. Need some love? And we're going to give some love to coach Lynn in just a moment here on ESPN LA. So Donald show here on ESPN LA might Trudell hanging out with us today. We gotta give some love to the chargers, man. They are playing great football right now, they deserve your attention. And Anthony Lynn their head coach joins us here on ESPN LA love talking to this gentleman right here. Coach Lynn, thank you so much for taking the time. We appreciate it. No problem was going on. All good, sir. Thank you so much. Congratulations on all your success. Let's talk. About kind of what's transpired here. This season. You know last year you guys get off to the rough start you finish really strong this season. You're playing good football. What have you learned the boast about yourself coach from your first season last year to where you are right now. Oh, man. I don't even know what start there's so much stuff going on. But. I guess just being more familiar with the personnel. Second year. This coaching staff has been together. I think we know exactly how to use the personnel that we have. And and me just you know. Just kind of organized and all of that and not necessarily being so so much hands on you know, last year. I think I was I was really involved to like kinda miss it out. Awesome. Thanks coach and did his. I should've been, you know, more focus on just being in meeting rooms and being in pods with the coaches and players, I think this kind of get a chance to step back and see the big picture just a lot better. And I could give better instructions from that. So coach you guys are on a five game winning streak and one of the things. Impressive to me is you've been doing it without Joey Bosa who I thought heading into the year had the chance to be. I don't know one of the one of the, you know, five ten biggest difference makers on that side of the football. I know you've been asked this a lot, but there isn't necessarily a timetable. But what do you expect to when do you expect he might be back, and how could that impact things even further for your defense? Here's a difference maker. And we miss him. But we're not gonna rush him back fill. You know, he's he's dealing with this foot injury very delicate because this small balls, and you see, and you know, when he's he's getting better, I can tell you every single week. He's running football drills right now. And that's the matter of, you know, physical conditioning, you know, hadn't played a long time. So we get him get him in football shapes closer the candidate will. So, but I don't like to put timetables on players 'cause you just never know how they're going to react to certain things, but they could be back sooner or later, though. Anthony Lynn head coach to the chargers where this year on ESPN LA last season and even early on this season. It felt like your wide receiving corps had a bit of the drops. But they have been unbelievable. I mean, they arguably one of the best groups in all of football right now. What's been the big difference with them as kind of the season has gone on coach? I like they grew in in a field. Mckay into Vancouver Java coaching agro, and you know, it was very uncharacteristic in that first game drops that we had that. That's not who they are. And they saw every day man up professionals. They go to work and he's got so I get better every single week. You know, they costly working on a skill and perimeter blocking. You know, like we have over five euros carry Russian football right now and a lot of times what receivers getting -cluded in. But you know, that doesn't happen. If you don't have good perimeter blocking so very very unselfish. And and a talent, you know, may say goodbye their talent. So I was I was talking to Josh Ruprecht was the PR staff down. There hasn't been on the road for I would say like forty one days. Cleveland addle I go to Oakland. Just just ridiculous and somehow won all those games. Right. Usually, it's the opposite. So now the schedules about to come back your way a little bit home after after Oakland got home games. Denver Arizona than away. Pittsburgh Cincinnati coming into town. What has been the key? And just in, you know, setting up figuring out where the freaking conference remains that you have to go into eat at key because that's kind of stuff I travel with the Lakers in the NBA. And that that stuff can be tricky. So that impressed me more. When I saw the schedule's been like for you. Very resilient. You know that tough. And we talked about this road trip, you know, three weeks ago before we took off, and they'll be at ten days. We'll go on on the road state went to Cleveland state and Cleveland practice, they're in different facilities and hotels and flew to London. And you know, and I told them this is really going to test toughness. You want to be that team? You know, come January wanna keep building thing to today where it in these things that we wanna hurdles overcome and guys. Good job. So for eliminating distractions on a road and staying focused and in doing a job. And I think it shows on Sundays, you know, coach Lynn Anthony, Linda, the chargers were this year on ESPN LA. I had read somewhere where Philip rivers talked about how he still lives down, you know, south in San Diego, and you know, he commutes, and, you know, he's got this souped up SUV with all sorts of video stuff that he can watch while he's commuting back and forth. Is that still the case is he's still got this crazy souped-up SUV with all the video stuff? Yes. Yes. He does. He is pretty nice go actually sit in the back seat somebody's. I just wanted to work on a history book. Yeah. But you know, he's got a driver at that takes them back and forth. And and you know, that way he doesn't miss any of the film study. You know, if he's in the car for an hour and a half two he's he's watching Tapis making cut ups, and he's always really on top of it. But the most impressed with though is he's six around here and hanging out with the fellas, you know, he's one of the guys, and he's not the first one out of here because he's out on in scenario if anything he's like the last one out here. So he's been time with his team Mason. And I think that's really important. He gets an interesting rap, right? Like I felt like throughout his career. He had good big time success early on there were in that AFC title game. He played like a warrior, basically on one leg in New England and kind of fought through that and he's had some tough luck. Because you know, prior to your arrival the team had been very up and down at times. What is he like as far as a competitor? I mean, everyone sees. As the fire fiery commentary that he has with his teammates. And opponents, certainly, but how would you best describe what kind of competitor? He is coach. Super competitive super. And there's no one as competitive as is, you know, it may be. You know, dislike compares guys in his Lee companies gas on this team, but you won't find one any more competitive, and Phil, you know, and not only does you compete, but he's prepared and he can competes off the feel as well as he does feel and he's been a really positive example for the young guys coming in the watch. I he prepares and just good leadership that way. Hey, coach, I understand that you played in the Lakers golf tournament this year. I know you've had lunch with Luke before. And I met magical a couple times at what a what what did you notice just from those meetings with with that crew? And what's it like being amongst the coaching fraternity with the guy like Lukin, and certainly under magic all manage just Greg guys super grade. I made the Lakers scout Lakers organization, you know, with magic in Luke. They know they welcome me when I got in town, and you know, and I can't wait to you know, Smith some time with those guys and dolls season, but just picking brains about how to do things basically, and the scheme wise and into see the way the Lakers fantasies last year. You know, I went to the first game season. And I gotta go to one late in the season when they play Cleveland, and it's like night and day, you know, and that's what you love to see his development with players in guys growing, and I don't get that Thang Thanh around anyway enrolling in my direction. I'm in got great leadership and good coach. Where would you line up LeBron at defensive enter tight end? You know, what I would put them at tiny for. Okay. You know, my red zone threat my third down. And and if I needed to put him oh that Russia in coach. We joke about that. But I really think that the Brian could have been in NFL tight end. If you just want to focus on that in high school, isn't it? To miss athletes in the world. Have no doubt in my mind. Yeah. Gronk would be second best basically LeBron felt like. And that's not a shot at gronk or even your guy and Tonio gates or those guys LeBron would have been a whole different level. Coach before we let you go. Obviously for you guys moving here.

You're Nicole has brought her purell up on the stage. If anybody needs. We'll have a giveaway for somebody. Yeah no no toilet paper yet. Yeah so we have a lot of survivors. That are going to be here with us as well to talk about this and can't believe Boston rob voting out. That was a huge cheer. When you guys don't like Boston Rob Yeah okay. I can't either Cheer Abreu. That's really that's what I that's what I can understand from up here I historic night for all of us to be year together for the Boston. Rob Vote Out of the game for the third time. Is this the first time? He's been voted out so early. Since its first season in his five seasons around this time in heroes vs villains. Yeah Yeah so. It was a wild night. We got to see the swap. We have interesting storylines going on on all three of the tribes Nicole. Yeah we do So I am all about these girls yes sees girls are so good this season loving it. Look if Michelle in Poverty WanNa take over the know it all season. I can retire. They can just come here and then they just talk about all the guys talk about whatever I bet. They'd have a lot to say yeah. Poverty was so funny in this episode. This was on this podcast. Poverty as opposed to survive artery. Yeah definitely we'll get into everything with Wendell. We'll get into. This is your wheelhouse so I am all about Michelle on this one. Yeah I feel like Wendell just got busted busted. Yeah must've Yeah Nicola Ni- that we've hit. We've kicked it kicked it. I can't even get it right. Get it kicked it. Yeah I saw a few times a couple of couple of times and it was awkward. It's yeah yeah we've got a really great week of shows coming up on the pike kicking lease. How Much Pirelli? You have not enough. I will talk tomorrow night to is going to be our site. It's a good week to talk to the Sepah. After her. Try Make. I voted out. We did plan that way so excited about that. And then Is going to join us on the feedback. Show as always so fun. She's always she's always so fun. Okay Nicole call. What did you make of this? Do you think that Boston Rob was going out this episode did you? Did you see the writing on the wall? I'm kind of awkward in that camp. The whole buddy system thing I was like someone's gotta they gotTa shut this down right. Yeah I think that this was like a good look at how rob plays the game. I think that rob really he he decides what's going to happen and then each his game run out the clock and he has. Nobody else is allowed to talk it even just going back to my own experience. It was just like okay. Well that's what the plan is that. Nobody's allowed to talk about anything else. And if you talk about anything else then then you're then you're in trouble and it seemed like that. He thought he was going to get away with it before it was. I'm sure it was very hard for those people to be able to be able to put the plan in motion but it seemed like that for rob. This was a bad swap group because that he was with a couple of guys who were awkward Moore who were sick of him and along with Sophie who is really not having it blew. Sophie did say rob is in a hole in this episode. So I wish I've heard before I've heard I've heard I've heard this sentence before usually call says it you. She might have been talking about me. Like what do you think of Rob Sister Nino whole yeah and then? Sarah didn't seem like she was particularly interested in working with rob. Either yeah they. They weren't having. These girls are too smart for this nonsense. There was nobody there that was buying what rob was selling. Yeah then selling it for. How many years like it's off the market now? Well I think it's tough in a smaller group like I think like in a bigger group. Maybe that more people more people are afraid but it was just like there was nobody that was interested. I think we should saw this coming. Maybe a lot of us. We're just sort of naive to think like well. It's been working so far. Yeah I was really hoping Ben would would get up and be like this and do something f f this and do what I talk to get up before they were even as far as the ruin. The buddy system. Break the rules young. Get into a time out. You know do something okay Nicole. Let's let's bring up some some guests to join US okay. You don't like this duo here. It's fine it's fine but I wanna I wanna hear from some of the survivors. Yeah they probably have better things to say. I don't want you to leave. Stay Yeah you could say okay. Yeah how about this okay? A can I get a duo? Can we get Hannah? Are you in the middle of a conversation are you okay your guy and Jay? Can you come up? Also pure L. them here. How many microphones do we have? We have okay all right here. You got you take one. I'll share with Nicole. Alright Alright Jay personal thing off of that guys. We have an expert in the house. 'cause tonight we saw ex on the beach and we have Jay and yes so exciting so we have we have new tribes and we have a green tribe that had to build all their stuff. And that's like you guys too. Yeah we did have the green tranquility Kabua. Yeah that was terrible and very much. Like millennials versus Gen-x that we saw somebody go out from the majority of the swap. Start which is what happened in your season. Every time after the swap people get blondes. Get Blind people get blindsided? People get blindsided tonight. It was. It was Boston Rob. Who Do you think he saw it coming? What do you think he seemed pretty confident? Yeah I want to say no. Yeah he didn't see that coming. He seemed all right. But you know what I really wanted to get up or even Adam I. It's not necessary to get up like they could just played the game and just been quiet about and got the how they did but holding it. Oh I think this may have been one of my favorite episodes of survivor ever. I saw I please because I walked down here and to give you an elbow bump and then you said. This is one of my favorite episodes of survivor. Ever and I'm curious to know why so I personally love. The survivor is funny. And I felt like I could've watched Michelle and Wendell and Nick and poverty the entire time I I don't need tribal. I just WANNA watch nick like I felt like Nick became his high school. Self and party didn't cut him any slack. She wasn't like Oh we should work together. She was like yeah sweat boy. So funny and Michelle's all day with Dole is so awkward. It was just like every try was incredible and every single tribe. Kim Who Yeah you know I just. I felt Kim is as powerful player. And we've been shown her like awkwardly walking up to people who don't want to talk to her now she's finally in a position of power. What is it great episode all around you? You brought up the thing with poverty. Nick Nicole as a as a friend of poverty. Should Nick have said anything to poverty? No 'cause we would definitely make fun of you definitely conversations on the side about that. I don't even know what he talked about it last week. Like what they've even even come up honestly though. I don't judge Nick. Either because I met poverty at the like pre-premiere thing and I acted very similarly. I giggled at her and I said Cook Islets Fourteen. So do you think that the that the Michelle and Wendell thing can they can get past that? I hope not because I want to watch night dream. Scenario these stand the game the whole season and it. We just feel the tension and they did it final tribal and they hash out their friends with benefits at final tribal. That's what I want out to answer your question though. Yeah I mean Michele or are on the bottom so yeah maybe they should pull Wendell in. They need to do something so yeah. Is there alien. I thought we saw Wendell flustered. Also in the confessional. We saw him starring and stop like three or four times like really for the first time window. Who's usually like a pretty smooth operator? I feel like that. He didn't know what to say or what to talk about. Yeah he had no game there he was just. We kicked it. We hit it girlfriend. Say she was over. Because I wish we would have gotten to see more about what you'll thinks about what's going on here at this scale because I feel like that you'll is about ready to short-circuit you'll be like the calculations don't measure up here. This is odd this whole situation very very odd. I WanNa see all the survivor players in ex on the beach. The Beach House. Yes and actually see what goes Jay. Do you have any advice for Wendell and Michelle in this situation expert? Be Nice to go away from her. Go Away from are going. I feel like he tried. He was like I'm not gonNA say hi to you and she was like we're on five feet away and I think he just needs to acknowledge the situation and say I'm sorry and then move on now. I want to hear every detail. Well we need yes agreed to Hash it all out. We need to go to tribal so we can at least hear the story like what happened. Yes yes jeff needs to get involved in this and favorite episode for eight years people are like enough with the Jeff probst show. We're tired. It's not a talk show. It's survived now. We're like yes jeff. Jeff Jeff I think Wendell and Michelle could have saved the JEFF probst Xiaoxia. Just had this. Yes yes this is. I mean this could be the greatest reunion that they've had on the show and I TV Wendell. What was the status of your relationship? Did notes are in? You didn't just kicking also Michelle play badly. We don't we heard what happened. I'd better go sit her ghost. Islander you guys you guys. Yeah so it was interesting that we we've really two different tribes where it's sort of like eighth grade dance where it's like. Asian boys trying to overhear. It didn't stick Bob. Boston rob was running every guys all the boring showroom everyone was just as awkward socially as I am and it was a dream and even the drag that went to tribal council. I mean you know like those three guys trying to feel like we're cool with each other like it was just so funny. It's so boring on survivor. To try to spend like five hours talking about nothing is Really is the ultimate endurance. Talk ABOUT NOTHING. They talked about how to eat. Oreos yes it's an important thing ever game players have the mid ones. Are you a Dunker Yup Zero Deep Fried Oreo or twenty? I've never had a twinkie. We are weird. The podcast will be about this now. Let's just let's just run out the clock and talk about talk about a deep fried twinkie. The rest of the way so of course that we got to see your cast mate and dear friend Adam tonight be one of the pivotal swing votes with within Jay. This is a good move to go with Sarah and Sophie. Over Boston Rob. I wanted him to just get up and be like rob. Yeah. We're GONNA vote for you and that's it. I honestly just wanted to see like some savage in this and then but they still got amount. So I'm still happy but it's been great because it's been the atom show the whole time for the past like four episodes. Yeah what are what? Were very very impressive. Very impressive what about you had a second? You think that maybe sticking with a with rob was the way to go in this particular situation. I think that the move was more and more obvious but sophie so dangerous and cool. I know I feel like keeping her in isn't real scary thing she's got an idol's she's guy you'll her nerd partner looking good as well. We're at least you know where he's what he's doing because you know he's not it's interesting like he didn't mix it up whereas someone like Tony. This season is playing almost the opposite of his game which is really working for him But Yeah I think everyone did great and it's not because Adams watching this. What about like Fr- devil's advocate in terms of that? We've seen all season long. People WanNa keep rob around because they want to hide behind him. Is it that the was foolish for people to try to hide behind rob in the first place of or is the time for hiding behind rob over? Which way do you want me to devil's advocate? So if it's the right if it's the right move to get rid of him why is it the right move the get rid of him now or people wrong to be keeping it around in the first place? Why is it that because he is he does seem to be very controlling? It's his way or the highway at least as portrayed in the episode and I think a lot of these winners want to have fun. I mean they've all they all have a million dollars. They all role in their cash. We know this and so I think they're out there to maybe have a good time and play hard and maybe rob wasn't letting them do. Here's the devil's advocate. Yeah Yeah Yeah me like that. Rob Is Sucking air out of the room to some degree where everybody has to play. Rob's game to talk. Nobody puts officer Sarah in the playpen. Okay do not try to put officer Sarah in a playpen because she will get out. Part of the devil's advocate to is the three SELA. I know a tribe name that ended up. There didn't vote together so also they wanna get out someone who they don't trust anyways right. Okay we also draw. Okay anything else. You want to add about the episode of the season. Now Okay all right. Well yeah all right. Well it's it's so nice to have you guys here. I WANNA I wanNA keep adding to the conversation. Pg Or are you up for coming up here. Come on come on down you. Can you can hang out as long as enough chairs. Okay Yeah we're GONNA leave that's PG how are you? Hi Guys. Thanks FOR COMING OUT G. O? Is it's so nice to talk to you and not hear anybody yell at me that somehow we've altered the course of the season by some by somebody's favorite player getting voted out because I'm talking to you. Pg Well this isn't technically you know the time for them but people still were. I guess the last time that we did the know it all I talked to you the next day and then people got on me about. Kerr charisma blow that really. Yeah well we have to worry about that tonight. Okay how have you been? How're you doing? Great thanks for asking yes always. It's always great to see you. You can pick that up if you want Nicole. Yeah it's on so. Pg would you make of this trial council tonight? Council was it was fine. This was the tribe that I had hoped would go to tribal council just because I think they there was the most interesting interactions between all the people that ended up on that new tribe. Yes so did you think we fooled at all or that? You knew it was going to be Boston Rob. I think it was pretty clear that it was GonNa be rob. I think it was the right way to go. I have a very. I have like a severe allergic reaction to these high ended men trying to control everybody. Everybody well if there was a rejection of Boston rob tonight. Yeah it was well. It was just super old school and like you know it was so frustrating seeing all of them just stifled and being like we are being allowed to play survivor. But that's what we care for We don't WanNa play your survivor. We all want to play our own games. Yeah and it was wild. Also that Sarah and we're so e found the idol now not only. Did Sophie have an idol? Sarah had the votes steel also so they play either of them. No that was amazing and we also found out what happened with the other half of Kim's idol from a couple of weeks ago that was like a cliffhanger. We didn't know she gave half to Sophie. Sophie gave it back who we'll get. We'll get the Kim but Kim has an idol also swing swing positions dudes. Have I don't I? Don't Jeremy has a safety without power then the rest of the idols. These the Whitney says an idol. Yeah Sandra has an idol of Kim has an idol. So a lot of there's a lot of women on the edge of extinction the water here to play women that are here have idols. This was a good episode for the women fight except for Michelle and poverty who could probably need one the most but they're hot they don't need it. Yeah we'll see we'll see we'll see how next week house by all right. So let's talk a little bit about this This one of these other tribes Cam with the hidden immunity idol. Now she's in this very interesting position. Pg where she's the swing vote. Where Tony and Sandra feel like? They have her. But it feels like that. They don't have her being. The swing. Vote is a tricky situation to be in because you have a lot of power but at the same time peop- puts target on you as well people know especially at obviously everybody knows. She's the swing vote and it could be just as easy to be like. You know what we'll just take her out of the equation like maybe that's the easiest way to go Which way do you think she's going to go? I think she's GonNa go with Denise and Jeremy. Yeah really does he like it. It seems like that Sandra. I don't really even gives him the time of day. I don't think that Sandra wants anything. I don't think Sandra wants anything to do with Kim. Going back to like even like the first episode wear Kim was like trying say hi Tony at least recognizes that they need to keep Kim involved but it seems like that. Don't forget that Kim and Germany were in the poker alliance together that was that was a thing and then Kim Engineer Acumen Denise. I feel like that they were that they played in. Kim is the winner of season. Twenty four nieces. The winner of season twenty five and I feel like that they probably have crossed paths at some point. It most likely so. Yeah I think that that's going to be pretty interesting to watch coming into next week. Pg Do you like that next week. They're going to do the combined tribal councils. It's always hard like knowing that two people are going home. Well I think one person's going to go home but two tribes are going to vote. I think that what they said. They're both okay. Audience is booing me. Sorry everybody I. I assume that that's what we're GONNA do. Because that's what they did in season thirty eight when they went down to three tribes. Of course. That's what they did to Malcolm as well but I guess we'll I guess we'll have to wait and see you guys are telling me that I totally did not here right okay. We'll see we'll see all right yeah. Pg who are you especially following this season like like who? Who's on the season that you have some connection to reading for Sandra? Just because I'm friends with Sandra. Do you make a ring for for Sandra. Recently I did earrings earrings. This bling that she did you make that yell at that amazing. It's so pretty. Yes can you describe it for the people listening to the podcast? It's very big. I did Saunas hearings and then I also did engagement rings for Todd. Oh these and for his fiancee now. Yeah Wow rob's wife wants some stuff to we. Can we can discuss Amber Burke Marianna? Want some stuff sucks. I wasn't clear. Oh okay okay. So do you think that Sandra is in trouble? She still has her idol that she can play for one more trouble council. I think Sandra is GONNA be. I mean depending on where Kim goes in how the next couple councils go. I think Sandra's syndicate spot. Because she's not. I don't think she's really seen as a big threat. Still GonNa be that same game where she kinda just manages to squeak by episode after episode Yeah I think that Sandra is going to be good for this tropical. I was asked this question. I do the survivor. Pre-game show before this because sometimes this podcast. I don't get the podcast enough so I. I was asked this question a lot about that. Do you think that Sandra could get blindsided with our idle and? I don't think that Sandra is the type of person I is going to expire. She's not going to go home and not play. Yeah I agree with that. Yeah Sandra Sandra is not going home with an idol. Right like Sandra has a coupon for something and the coupons going to expire. She's just going to use it to you go. She's GONNA use that. Yeah because she's not going to let that go that go to waste. I think Sandra's definitely going to get through and user idle. Pg Is there. Is there anybody that you feel like? That would be fun to join this conversation. We talked we could bring Max up. Okay let's talk to Max up. They didn't recognize Mexican. I don't see tyler tonight. You could share with me your next awesome. Everybody everybody Max how you doing. I'm very good. I got a sitter for tyler actual with your boys playing league. Who's watching who? Yeah Okay Max. Everything on everything is going very very well. Yes apart from the fact that I now have corona virus from handling the microphone. Oh thank you have a nursery out. You're good you're good. Yeah would you like you? Can't you can't have enough thank you? It's like this all day at my house. Max Okay all right so who anyway so. Interestingly tonight Max no edge of extinction I know and did you guys miss it now. What we say that but last week edge of extinction was the new hotness. Right right everyone was having this this come to Jesus moment where Oh maybe edge of extinction could be a good thing though you guys were complaining about having that Ethan moment we yes yes yeah all right the call. What do you think of the edge of extinction? I feel like I don't know this about you. How I kind of binge survivor the past few episodes. I watched them like in a day so I was. I really enjoyed the last episode with Ethan going up the stairs and then on his final trip up everybody went with him and like you would orange theory. No we leave men behind. It's very competitive. But I thought I thought that it was Nice. Just like seeing the bonds with everybody but then the next second. They're all like screw you on running up you. Stay here and I'm screwing you over. But let's hug after you know I like it. No edge of extinction. No mentioned fire tokens until Boston. Rob bequeathed his to Harvey did. Did you Miss Tyson? I always Miss Tyson. We get to see a way. It's like every everybody else got to have like a moment when they get to the edge of extinction. We don't see anything about what's going on with with Tyson. But Max. What do you make this season forty? I mean it's been a really refreshing change of pace Azer last season yes. It's been amazing to reconnect with all of these players and to see where they are in life how they've changed and it's just been it's kind of like sometimes they have these times survivor. We're I hate myself for loving it. Sometimes I'm having so much fun watching it and being a survivor fan and listening to our HAP- This is one of those times. This is a good time to be a survivor. Fan Right funniest episode efforts and I never and to echo what Hannah was saying. This was really like a perfectly episode. Perfectly edited episode. This is like five funny. One fifteen entries will be coming out of this episode alone. Yeah it was just such a toward a force from an editing standpoint character development humor yeah motion moment with you'll and you'll talking about stacy and guns that yeah yes about that. Yeah Okay. Let's let's let's talk about so we had the scene where you you'll have that conversation with Sarah those weird spot to open this episode. But I think they didn't just they didn't know where to put it because they're gonNA swap and you'll see the same drivers Sarah Anymore so I wanted to get that in there at least before they swap drives but then on top of that that we know that you'll is trying to raise money for a LS RESEARCH. He's asking for CBS to match the he's going to donate them. The two million dollars if he wins. Then we also had the commercial for with Jonathan Penner and stacy title. And it's such a heartbreaking story that so many of us if you knew. Panir you know you know Stacey and I it's you know it's so heartbreaking to see just you know all the they've gone the two of them have gone through over these last couple years yeah if you're La based survivor contestant and you've been around for a while you've watched an episode of Jonathan and Stacy's house they're like the den Parents La survivor seen. They've been so generous to so people they've been wonderful and what we saw today was an acknowledgement. A rare acknowledgment on the show of the really strong lasting bonds that you can form with people that you're on the show with or even people that you weren't on the show with I mean so many of us have these relationships that really last in transcend whatever kind of rivalries. We may have had on a season or an episode and seeing you'll be able to acknowledge that talk about that and at the same time raise awareness of a really important. 'cause was a very beautiful way of starting. An episode that for the most part was very light hearted but started with such such emotional gravity. Yeah it was a ton of press pieces also today about everything that you'll is doing and I thought that that was really great that they ended up also putting that spot off air and giving out the link for people who want to donate money to is what was also making a an additional donation as well. He was saying a matching donation of fifty thousand dollars. Yeah for people that go ahead. Everybody donate like. Why doesn't everybody everybody in this room? Don't eat something wonderful. So yes that was really a very credible way to open up this episode. No easy way to transition out of that Max. I I did want to ask you that. How glad do you think that Michelle and Wendell are that you guys aren't still currently doing ATF? Oh yeah yea yeah. There have been many people who have been it. Seems like taunting us to come out of retirement. Have we talked about BRAND ENHANCES? Hit Two hundred. I mean I know this is not a visual medium but Nicole. You gotta see this. No this is this is this is breaking news. This is like karinna seriously. It's enough to almost motivate us to start his head and started charging it looks like you'll like running Hyena but yeah you know not to go into Awkward Territory. Too much yeah. Pg and I were cracking up watching this episode. Yeah all right all right well. Let's let's not do too much on. Gotora who offer tough. I was just GonNa say I like how they have acknowledged it so mad at like they're acknowledging all the pass relationships the relationships that all of the players have with each other now. It's you know if there's no more pretending that this is a clean slate like everyone comes with baggage and it's especially fun. I think for fans who've been following so much of this through all the years to see all of the interactions and intersections and how it's all coming to bites people into but maybe or apparently unlike US Wendell and Michelle have nop able to move on fences and become friends. But I couldn't imagine if we played together right after like personally I'm never playing. We're worried about that because poverty impression right now I cannot do apart being person. Yeah so you guys were couple for about five minutes is are. We kicked it very briefly. Okay I think we can do a whole season of survivor of people who just dated each other and saying excellent. The beach survivor. Yeah okay okay. So do you guys have any advice for Michelle and Wendo? Don't go on survivor together. Apparently Asia vote the other person off. I feel like Wendell has some reckoning. We were talking earlier. The fact that maybe the reckoning will happen this season. Maybe it's going to happen tonight with like an angry text but him that saying she was my girlfriend. She kept saying he was my boyfriend. We dated and he kicked it tweeted. He's something like a psa he's like we kicked it. I was like Hensley uncomfortable. Even airmont and that's the core of the problem with their relationship. I guess is that he was not as intuitive. She was or he was trying to keep it on the download. I of knowing how many how many ladies can relate to that. I know you me. You actually the window. Are you texting me you up and I'm like new podcast who it is. We just kicked it. Getting Weird Scott really ought to be kicked out. Yeah I feel like this is a question for Bryce Isaiah to address. Yes okay I got the Purple Pants. Podcast this week for to get all that maxine. Anything else I mean. I just don't see I'm looking forward to every week again. Like I said it has made me rediscover and remember why I love this show so much. So thank you survivor. God's for giving us the season now of all times after the abomination that was thirty nine. We all really needed this needed it. Yes okay all right anything else that you want to say okay. All right well thank you both so much. Okay all right. Let's bring a couple of other people up here. A would love to hear from Abbey Maria. I didn't even know she was here. Yes Abbey are you around. Yes Abby as year Cole. Or you want to come up. He's The island. Jan Yes com. You're hot Yes okay. Here's Abbie Murray's Abby Maria Coleman or is everybody okay wherever you're good okay. This is my first time. Yes call a welcome to the live. No one else. So excited yeah. I'm actually a part of a survivor right. Now you're part survivor. Abby Maria is here everybody how are you? I'm doing great? How the next few microphone? Okay hold on now. You're good okay. Hello Hello US. Toilet paper anyone. Abbott Nicholson Hidden Mio. I am the godmother. All right. That is my Boston. Rob or associate medallion. Yeah Okay what did you make of Ben? And how he's doing this season okay. So as like playing with Ben before he's so squirrelly he makes you think that he's like your best friend even though I'm really oblivious to start with so don't get me started there but you think he really likes you but he's just wanting to get rid of you the whole time and if anyone would have stood up to rob. I thought it was going to be been been does Ben no matter what. Yeah Dan in rob had a really interesting relationship throughout the whole season. Going back to in the first episode. Where then Boston and you'd be able to tell me if you don't tell me what you know right. Homina Homina Homina He basically told the whole thing to rob but we saw these last couple of weeks. He's like I can't wait to get rid of this guy. I don't. I don't like I like Boston me around and then I think he'll probably was sweet for Ben to push Boston out. Yeah as far as I knew becomes after you. It works so yeah. I believe that this might have been. I think that maybe Dr Mike had said this about how that the problems that Dan had with. Robert the same problems that ben kind of had with Joe in your season. Yeah Ben Likes to be in control like rob and so when someone else is trying to control him he just he wasn't gonNA poke. Actually I think it was. I'm sorry I think it was Roy on the BNB's at this one of my quotes right. Contrel HE I mean he was he was the round table in our season was his thing. He comes off as really cloudy to me this season. Maybe it's strategy. Who's is really funny. That is been charmed. Oh He's very disarming and then he's but he's really in the grass sell et. See what did you make of tonight to see Boston Boston? Fan Well I was happy to see him go. I think Boston Hot Robin. I wouldn't Naga. Yes money them. That would be hilarious. The moment that he'll be like nobody touching their bags motherfucker. Really who the fuck do you think you are? We would fight as fuck. It wouldn't well that little love them. Ask father around here with Nago with the godmother. How you feel about that we would. I'm already I'm already reading my face just thinking about it. Worked UP AS TALIA MAFIA and the Brazilian Mafia. I'll tell you Boston we plan. We're just going to all sit here all day. I'm not Margaret Theories motherfucker Foca Abby Maria right and I got a medallion as well. Got You abby. How is denise doing this season they need is a powerhouse as always she is delaying? Everyone's hearts is. She's yes she's she's just killing it and what can I say too? Gangsta She's in a good spot with one of your other friends. Jeremy Jeremy How can you not love Jeremy? He's such choose moves operator. I hope he gets them. And SHOVES UP. Someone's year now. What MEDALLION BOSTON? Ause medallion token. Yes yes so. Do you feel like that. Jeremy and Denise to people that you know are going to be able to work together moving forward. Ooh I think the news you Rub Jeremy Wrong. Why why easy owing now. Dean is not easy going. It's her way or the highway. Are you kidding me? I didn't know this I do. I know and I battled because you know I have. I have personality too. I can you give me an example of how for Denise. It's her way or the highway. Well she wouldn't work with me right. So that's fair. That's fair. So do you think that they're going to be able to get Kim onboard with them? I think the knees. Yes Jeremy Sure. It might be complicated. It's complicated just like when Dell and be Maria Kerr what's going. What's going on with them? I mean imagine me being there with Pete. Are you kidding me? When I can't say I've hung out with a lot outside of this. And He seems to be the difference survivor person each time. So Oh I I am definitely Michelle's Warner I am Michelle's corner. I think she handled badly handled the Wendo beautifully. Damn I can wrap yeah. She handled window beautifully. Yeah do think that they'll be able to coexist abby well. Michelle is move operator. She's common collective needs to keep his chill is cool. Yeah I think they will be shows no Abby Maria who is safer windows game going forward now that he's been exposed see. I think when this group we ever really talked about what's going to happen with with this vote but I feel like that Michelle's connection to win. I think is going to be what saves her. I feel like that at that. Group goes to a tribal council. I'm more worried for poverty than I am for. Michelle group goes to a tribal council will call. What do you think bigger than what happened at the game? Two million dollars is going to be a lot more important than that relationship I think that tells a lot about Michelle's game if anyone had any doubt on whether she should have won that season they should understand that she should because she is playing the game are I. She definitely playing. Is this working? Yeah you're good you're good yeah. I feel like that added anybody. I feel like that poverty and Michelle got the worst The worst draw on the tribes swab can fix it no. I don't think that the way they can fix. It is to not go to a tribal council for those two. Because I feel like that for. I mean you'll and nick and Wendell was like a solid alliance. It is it green poverties on that tribe. She came charm. Anyone up. She's she can charm nick. Nick already claimed his love. Nick had a crush on in high school. He's going to be able to Nicole. Yeah boom but knicks just going to sit around cab. Ride Alright pure outbreak. Sorry sorry every other podcasts. Yeah what are we saying? Call Knicks just going to sit around cameras. Start telling his high school cross do the dishes and that's not going to go over well. Do that definitely do that? But Yeah I just think that for poverty. The one chance she has is you'll because she knows you'll from Cook Islands but I don't think that you'll is going to ever flip on Nick and Wendell they just have to ride this out and potentially get through to the swap to be able to have a chance that. I am very worried about poverty. I really thought that they were going to lose the challenge. Though that poverty was going to go out in this episode but I think if anybody can pull it off it is party I agree I just I don't I don't see the move is other than if they can. Maybe by an advantage in the challenge to make sure that they end up winning to get to get to the merge but I don't know with to try the voting somebody out. I'm very worried about poverty. Going into next week tokens but I think that she can buy an advantage in the challenge. But I think that that's that's about it. I think she has now. Three fire tokens but just four okay. Four or five million so I guess that would be her moved to buy an advantage in the challenge for next week. But I don't know how big advantage is going to be. So we'll see abby Stephen Tonight. I'm very clumsy. I think I am impersonating Stephen. I just know I just hurt myself with a microphone. I think I am. I just don't have my glasses on tonight. But yeah and I am Super Germaphobe.

Yeah Yeah Abby are you a fan or you don't like it. I love edge of extinction. Are you kidding me? It's like hope is like real live. It's like Oh my God. I have a second chance of going back and doing this again. I personally would love to be in a season with edge. I call it as just because you go ahead. And I know that you are a big fan of the Queen Sandra Diaz. Yes how do you? How do you think Sandra's doing I think Sandra's doing amazing? She does no wrong. Okay Okay.

And thank you so much for loving me back all right. Thank you thank you so much. Okay if people have questions if you want to start to make a line over there and then we'll we'll start. We'll start to take some questions. Hold on sandy of a all right. Good good I W- what's going on? Okay now I got ghostbusters. Yes okay all right Bradley you WanNa you Wanna come say hi okay. You're okay thank you. Thank you Cole. Abby let's say hi Bradley needed you WanNa say hi come on. I don't want okay all right. Let's say let's take some questions from from our audience to okay Bradley. How you doing? I'm world think you yes to be here. Okay excited too excited to have a great Bradley's your Ed. Hey Nina Porsche. So Nice so nice to see you were supposed to with us in brea a couple of months ago and then you couldn't make it out that night but it's nice to see you here tonight. Thank you for coming out how you doing. And I'm good okay. All right enjoying season forty. I am enjoying it a lot. Yes so because I was a fan from season one. I saw every single episode except the first episode so I know all the winners so it's really fun watching them all play and see how they play this time around with other winners Nina. Do you think it's a good idea or a bad idea if I ask Bradley about what's going on with Wendell. I think it's a good idea to call. This is a good idea or a bad idea. Bradley thoughts on this No all right all right all right. Let's take let's take some questions from the audience. Does okay just tell us who you are? My name is Ben Ben Okay. I was wondering if it Robs Boston. Rob's okay chances would have been a little better if he had maybe had them do something fun. Instead of just sitting around like me you played a game or something. Yeah that'd be so boring so torturous. Yeah interesting and so back in survivor island. When Boston rob had to go and find the clue for the idol like he made up a game for everybody to go play and keep themselves busy the whole day. This was like the opposite of that. This was like everybody's in time out. Nobody nobody move. I believe it was called the Garrett Edelstein to everybody sit here like let's let's not talk and let's go ahead and let's sit here all day. But what do you think should come up with some sort of a game for Roy? Come up with the game. Yeah Yeah I didn't like I didn't like the way he played tonight. He made everybody go into time out. Everyone just sat there however it was really kind of fun to watch. Night is kind of got a kick out of watching everyone. Just sit around and make faces and try to figure out what what they're gonNa do and I was wondering how they were going to figure out Sarah and Sophie how they were going to figure out Talk to the other guys come on. Let's vote rob out. But I mean I think it was unanimous because it was just so obvious. Let's get this guy out because he's not playing and not letting US play. It's kind of like big kids in a playpen. Yeah so yeah Bradley. Any thoughts on Boston Rob Tonight. Well when I said I was trying to play a game like him maybe I actually was which was playing poorly due before the way that you were playing a combination between Boston. Rob and Kim Spradley. Oh Yeah Yeah why not you might as well just go for the great. Yeah maybe I actually was for both of them. I don't you know I was for one of them but I know tonight before trouble was a kind of a fun. Glimpse for everybody home to see what you actually do not usually before tribal but on any random day on survivor. Talk about food for hours and hours in its. That was a funny scene. The way they edited it. Also of like Just to show you like how long the day was like a net locked off. Shot is good job with that. All right thank you Ben. The K- Hello I'm Brian Clark. And how are you doing? Well you see. We went to low on that microphone. Well I'm not going to touch it okay. So so obviously. Tonight's vote was really great for Sophie. But I really WanNa talk about Sarah because I am a big Sarah. Stan and I think from social media. Oh we're growing in number. Yes yeah we're all right. The movement started. And what does this vote for her legacy because we all know that there are only two giant heads on island of the idols? And now she's got both of them hanging on her wall. She's blindsided Sandra. Oh interesting and she's blindsided. Boston rolled out of the game. Yeah doc okay Nina. Who Do you think gets more credit for this? Move I that I felt like that. This was more of a sophie. Moved tonight by the episode. But do you think that maybe Sarah gets more of the credit? I don't know I I agree with you. I think Sophie thinks she gets most of the credit for the the move. Tonight and Sophie has been playing really incredible so far this season play because I kind of felt like I didn't know her very well when she want her seasons Fun To watch her and hear her talk and talk strategy and stuff like that so I've really been enjoying watching her this season. Yeah Br Bradley I was just GonNa say I think so? If he's been playing great but I think my interactions with Sarah in real life. She'll call you on everything and she figure stuff out faster than anyone I've ever seen. Can you give us an example? She's not good to lie to or maybe I'm just a bad liar. Okay but you didn't play in the season with her. What are you lying to her about? Did you kick it? This is a dangerous game when you're talking to survivors. Okay all right all right. Well maybe the story for another day. Yes yes go ahead. Hi I I WANNA say to anyone. Who's listening to this if rob or the podcast in your town in any way please go. Oh thank you I have never understood straight people watching football more than watching with this group of people. Yes that's what it's like. When rob voted out. The scream was very like Neta getting kicked off a big brother Canada. That one time a couple of years ago it was nuts. It was so loud I completed. My question is for for any of you with the whole gear. Edelstein things happening in camp. Everyone has to show their yes? Have any of you ever felt your game stifled? Before by someone else's Rosen's yes or or Dina. Anyone else That and what was your. How'd you feel about it? And what was your reaction? Well just in my experiences. You know that I feel like that especially once we got to the merge in Amazon there was a lot. There's a lot of stuff going on. I'M A. I almost feel like at least around me. There was. I was not present almost any game talk in twelve days all stars because it just wasn't you know that's not what rob has going on. It's like hey I'm the only person who's allowed to talk about the game and if I catch anybody else talking about the game then that person is going to be the person who gets voted out. I think he plays like very consistently over the course of his four seasons. Bradley did you. Did you have that experience at any point? Not NECESSARILY THAT. We couldn't Strategize go off. But it's difficult because you're trying to blend in and so if the -Vivor on campus that everyone's sitting together or people aren't really running off scrambling. It makes it tough for you to do that. So I I can kind of relate but not to that degree at all. Yeah the U. of any similar stories with my season. We were in three tracks and there was a six people per tribe. So if you have anything at all for anybody to want to vote you out for such as being deaf. You can't hide your your right out there in the open so yeah. I felt that was tough. It's tough to blend in when when when you can't okay. Thank you so much fun. Okay thank you yes. I'm Kalina Michelina. I was thinking about the green tribe and I was wondering should production have kept the robins Sandra shelter from island of the show and Sunday Green tribe. There wouldn't have been fair. Question is should they have sent the green to the Robin Sandra Island of the idols a shelter? Would that have been fair to Sandra? To just rob stay there. Okay Okay Yeah. That would have been fun. Yeah it would waste like us all those resources to bill that for. They didn't do anything with it. In season thirty nine. Would the reaction have been bigger for that shelter or for Applebee's less applebee's certainly applebee's applebee's comes back for the winners and the winners don't even care about applebee's like we're we're we're survivor winners. We don't eat at Applebee's Applebee's I'm not a winner. Hi I'm Kelsey. I think the microphone highest good. So my question. We've talked a lot tonight about the pre existing relationships and how much we're seeing on the show. So this has been an issue as far back as all-stars. Why do you think we're seeing so much of the season? How do you guys feel about the fact that it's actually infiltrating the show that the audience is seeing now? I think that that's interesting Do you have any thoughts on why they're showing so much about the pre existing relationships coming in Bradley? Do a thought on this I think they're showing them to be more genuine about the actual strategy to ignore them as to pretend that they don't exist in the absolutely do these things matter right. If I'm at these events with the same people over and over and we're hanging out. We're going to dinner chances. Are you get on that beach on day? One you're just going to be more comfortable with those people right. Yeah I think a lot of times in the previous all star seasons. It's like oh well. These people played together on their season. So we that's their relationship but if it didn't happen on the show they didn't really explore and we're getting more of that between the Poker Alliance and Michelle and Wendell and so maybe maybe we'll get more of that is as we go along but I just think that the audience is more sophisticated. I think they're a little more open about how they wanna tell stories on the show. So we'll see. Thank you good question. Yes Hi I'm Zach. Could I do to question sure Zach rate but they better both be good so the first one? So we've seen hidden advantages in challenges and tribal council. Is it possible? That the to fire tokens inside the immunity idol. Are I think a lot of people had this question after the first week? I think that Nick Wilson had posted on twitter that he tried and they were not. You're not able to pry. The fire tokens out of the immunity idol. Which I think is much less impressive as two pieces did you. Did you see that. Like the the skull and then just like the bones. Not Super Impressive okay. What was the question so did that? Two minutes sequence of rob sharpening the machete gives you any flashbacks. Get that on twitter. Like yeah why does he need Shetty? So sharp yeah because it was nice it was nice that it came full circle because there are only two gifts of me one is why does he need the machete so sharp and the other one says? Robin and we're going to do it on your own. There's two gifts yes. Yeah so it's it's come full circle thank you. Yes Josh going alario good. So we're isn't a whole lot of talk about the new red tribe but I'm a little bit worried if they go to tribal council Tony. Sandra Kim Jeremy Denise has an idol yes. Kim has an idol yeah. Sandra has an idol. Jeremy has all right. I'M GONNA head out. Oh you think Tony. The victim of vantage get in two point. Oh No to live by the dire. The bag of tricks to die by the bag of tricks. Wow I hope not. I hope not boy funny where it's like okay. Somebody plays their idol. I'll play mine and I play my Jeremy's like peace out like that would be. That'd be awhile man okay. Yeah don't put that out in the universe by the way that reminds me. Also that from one Josh to another. Let's also say happy birthday to Josh? Cler? Everybody say that so we can. We can add three hundred more people to the list today. Pretty good those pretty good. Okay yes go ahead. Hey how's it going good? Wanted to get your guys wanted to get guys take on. Jeremy's safety without power. Yes advantage because said advantage. Yes because like I feel like I'm over thinking it but I'm not sure because it seems like if and when he plays it he's taken away a number yes some his alliance which getting hurt him last season. Janet was offered that she's like well. No my line to be mad at me if I use it the right answer. You don't want this thing a bud for Jeremy. The good thing for Jeremy is that if he was swapped to a a tribe where if he was like in the Michelle or or poverty situation where. Hey I'm definitely screwed tonight. He would be able to leave so that was a good time that he would be able to do it. But you're right definitely is going to be the type of thing where maybe somebody's GonNa get mad at him for using it. Yeah thank you two more questions. Yes the Mike is too high for me so I'M GONNA stay next to a step. Yeah Perfect Josh. Stole my question about Tony. Yeah so now. What do you think that Tyson is doing watching at home being like I was so funny on edge? Why didn't they show me the preview for next week at least so at least for US Tyson Fans? At least we know that that's coming. It's coming for next week. Can I get a quick shout? Yes okay I want to give a shout out to my husband. It's our wedding anniversary Seru. He's a new fan that kind of dragged into literally watching all of the winners our on this season to catch up so I just want to say thank you for. I still loving me after watching this. Just yes hiring duardo. I was wondering if you guys have a tips for people. Applying for new seasons of survivor. Since they have the added up again okay So Interestingly so survivor casting or Jeff probst announced that they're actually going to push the filming of survivor back because of everything that's going on with the corona virus so normally they film a season of survivor in a couple of weeks usually they film one in March and they film one in. May they announced they're going to actually film survivor forty one in the slot that they were going to film survivor. Forty two so as of now if everything goes according to their new schedule. They're planning on filming survivor. Forty one after the filming of survivor. Forty which everybody is being safe with everything with the survivor schedule. Actually for as a survivor fan. I think this is actually good. News in terms of the game not to trivialize everything. That's going on. But I feel like that with everything with fire tokens. I know that they've said that. The fire tokens are going to be a part of survivor. Forty one I really would like to see the players on survivor. Forty one really see how they're everything on season forty is going to play out rather than see five episodes or six episodes of this season and then have to go in and basically we as fans are like more we know more about how the game works in the people that are playing in that new season so maybe the door is open for potentially casting for into season forty two. Do you have any quick casting tips yourself. I mean that's the the biggest thing you can do yourself. Don't be fake. Just go out there and show what you coming. Come in hot you have to be an extremely big version of yourself. Cast attention like Abbie. Yeah just be yourself yes. I mean unless you're boring. Don't be yourself if you're boring any okay. This is true you ever GonNa make you gotta figure something else out. Could we Choubey? You WanNa come up and say hi real quick really really loves Choubey on this weekend survivor. Okay Brad Bradley Choubey how are you okay? Choubey have been inundated on your social media. People that have been loving your appearance on this weekend survivor. Yeah Taboo.

You get to talk about here with you so I if I could just share one one last personal story tonight so this was a tough day in my family today because my grandmother who had been in poor health for sometime actually passed away this afternoon. So yeah it's She was ninety. So this was not unexpected. I just wanted to meant so much to her that when I was on survivor and she really referred to herself at times as the famous grandmother. That was her her claim to fame about being on survivor and with Tell her friends about how she was the famous grandmother because I was on survivor and that was all well and good until then I. I played in season six then the next season on survivor Jonny fairplay came along and then his grandmother became much more famous and and My my grandmother's said like Oh Jonny fairplay. At least he talks about his grandmother so I wanted to at least make it about youth tonight Josephine. So so why was wanted to acknowledge acknowledge or tonight? This was a really really fun.
