Will Congress act on guns after Sandy Hook, Buffalo, Uvalde?
"Senate democratic chief Chuck Schumer is pushing Republicans to finally act on guns after the Texas shooting With 20 little kids dead Please damn it please think if it was your child or grandchild But Schumer notes the prospects of GOP senators shifting course in helping pass substantial laws to curb gun violence are very slim even as leader Mitch McConnell blasted the shooting It's literally sickening Alabama Republican Tommy tuberville said regulating guns won't solve anything This is a mental health issue Guns are not the problem okay People are the problem New Jersey Democrat Cory Booker says that's the problem Mines are made up It doesn't matter if more kids died This is just going to be the same thing as it was after Parkland after newtown Here nothing is changing Sagar Meghani Washington
Mo Brooks: We Have the Ground Game but Need Financial Support
"So tell us what's going on on the ground in Alabama my friend Well we're getting blistered with the financial advantage that Mike Durant and Katie Britt have Katie bread is soaking up the money from the Mitch McConnell establishment wing of the party added to that are the special interest groups and as much as 5 the last 7 years That's been a profession registered lobbyist And in particular she's getting money from the open borders chief foreign labor crowd that loves to profit off of the hardship of hardworking Americans who don't want to have to compete against this chief foreign labor So that's pretty much the setup Mike Durant probably the closest analogy I could give to what he would be like in the United States Senate would be John McCain John McCain is the last time that Mike Durant voted in a Republican primary back in 2008 and he was a surrogate for John McCain around the country And that's why I mentioned him as a lookalike for the Mike Durant campaign effort So both of them have tons of money Mike grant He's a successful businessman to his credit He's put in 10 million of his own but he's also been recruited and supported by The Lincoln Project doing business as more perfect union in Alabama doing business as the element of patriots pact Jake harriman of those organizations pledged Mike Durant $15 million if he would get into the race That's a lot of money in a state like Alabama We have the ground game We had the support of almost every single conservative organization at least everyone I know of But unfortunately Mark as you well know
Go out & Support Mo Brooks in Alabama
"Big election in Alabama as well as other states by the way but as you know these elections affect not just the state from which the candidate runs But the whole country we need a majority I've known mo Brooks a long time He's very very solid conservative He was solid as a prosecutor in Huntsville Alabama He's been a congressman there for a bit Solid again He's running against two individuals one individual a woman Who's being pushed by the Mitch McConnell wing of the party and she has a ton of money She's basically sort of a chamber of no commerce individual And she's trying to fool the people of Alabama the Republicans That she's a conservative She is not she's a rhino And then there is a gentleman running I have nothing negative to say about him but he's no mo Brooks That's the bottom line
We Get Our Rights From God, Not the Government
"So our own. We're in trouble with a party. What does Dennis called the stupid party, right? We have that problem. So we may have to get rid of some of our own who are part of this swamp in Washington, like Mitch McConnell. Like, no love for that guy. Kevin McCarthy and not enough people say that. I know him. I've met that guy in the past. I don't trust him. Liz Cheney need I say more Mitt Romney. I still regret that I was a delegate for that guy. And countless other politicians who care more about their own power and wealth than the American people they were called upon to serve. And if all of our efforts fail, maybe we need a new United States of America. Not by an armed revolution, I'm not suggesting that. But perhaps a new Emancipation of those states that understand that this country was founded on limited government and a belief that we get, this is a big one. We get our rights from God and not from the government.
Daniel Horowitz on Biden's Warning of an Even Bigger Looming Pandemic
"Right now is an incredibly wise and great patriot, someone who has been speaking out against COVID tyranny, and has also been unafraid to go into the weeds and do research whether it's Ivermectin, hydroxychloroquine, and really waging a very effective war against Remdesivir, and he's been one of the most articulate and effective writers in the last couple of years, and he's been keeping keeping the bad guys on defense, which is just terrific. It's Daniel Horowitz, who has a new article out all about this topic we're talking about Daniel Horowitz says, quote, states must preemptively nullify any WHO international pandemic regulations. Daniel, welcome back to the program. Tell us what is the WHO poised to do, separate fact from fiction and how should we respond? Sure, you can't view this in a vacuum. Let's first of all, you have to look at the broader context that the Biden administration just conducted this global COVID summit where they essentially warned there's going to be an even bigger pandemic that is even more deadly and it's going to happen in the fall and the winter. It's kind of interesting. They seem to always know that. You know, when it's going to happen, so I would take them at face value, I ignored it last decade and never paid attention to this, but now I think we should take them seriously. So the broader point is that the impression that Republicans are trying to give you. And when I say Republicans, I mean the Mitch mcconnells, I mean, a lot of governors and state legislative leaders when I had friends of mine and state legislators, they're like, dude, we got to immunize ourselves against this to make sure it doesn't happen again. Let's utilize the time we live in when all these non pharmaceutical interventions so to speak have become so unpopular and let's make sure we currently ban it in law and state constitutions. And they're like, no, we're done with COVID. Let's move on. They don't want to talk about it. But we're not done with it. We're not done with the biomedical state because Charlie, this wasn't some once in a hundred year natural virus that happened to come and now it's over with. So maybe they responded inappropriately or even in an evil way, but it's over with. No, they induced it. They created it, and they're on to the next thing. And they've already groomed dare I say our generation to automatically acculturate themselves to this sort of reaction. So
Mitch McConnell Blames FDA for Formula Shortage
"I want to play for you one clip for sure. Leader McConnell yesterday was on with Brett fair last night and talking about the baby formula shortage, and he said, but I've been telling you for days, but I like it when the leader tells it to Brett bear on special report, cut number 28. Almost total incompetence. They misjudge us from the beginning. It's not a matter of money, the FDA has a $6 billion budget. They could certainly take care of the so called appropriation in the house that they just passed at 28 million. Bureaucratic incompetence, the administration was behind the curve. FDA needed to step up their game and hopefully will solve this problem very quickly.
Senate approves $40 billion aid package for Ukraine
"I'm Mike Gracia reporting the Senate ships of $40 billion Ukraine aid bill to President Biden for his signature The Senate gave final approval Thursday to a fresh $40 billion aid package for Ukraine sending the bill to president Joe Biden for his signature The legislation that includes military economic and food aid for Ukraine and U.S. allies passed on a vote of 86 to 11 Both party leaders Democrat Chuck Schumer and Republican Mitch McConnell urged passage It's a fight we should not and can not turn away from I encourage every senator on both sides to join this bipartisan super majority Every Democrat who voted approved the measure as did most Republicans but all the no votes came from Republicans which was also the case last week when the House approved the legislation 360 eight to 57 Mike Gracia Washington
Republican Leadership Never Took Madison Cawthorn Under Their Wing
"This young man Cawthorn who lost by really An eyelash And the Republican primary in the far west corner of North Carolina He may have had his faults It was a young man But the Republican leadership never took him under his wing You had former Republicans who were host on TV who were mouthpieces for their rhino brothers and sisters and just trashed the hell out of the guy Yet the drudge report trashing the hell out of the guy You had the Republican establishment in North Carolina trash in the hell out of the guy You had tell us the Republican senator who's a Mitch McConnell want to be trashed the hell out of the guy And just to show you what kind of a guy Donald Trump is he endorsed him in the final week or so of the campaign Even realizing it was going to be a tough race given all that had come He still endorsed him At a principle He's still endorsed him And he just conceded Unfortunately he lost So rather than take this young man who was in a terrible car accident so he lost the use of his legs from the hip down wheel wheelchair bound Rather than take him under the wing teach him the ropes and so forth and so on They went gunning for him Because that's what these bastards do
What Country Does Mitch McConnell Actually Represent?
"Has come out and he has said, look, the most important thing happening in the world right now is the war in Ukraine. What country does Mitch McConnell represent exactly? The country that has the wide open border and a 100,000 plus drug overdoses that has double digit inflation, you see, for Washington, D.C., WarGames are always more important than the livelihood of their citizens. Always. They will always care more about some far distant land than their own constituents. Does Mitch Mitch McConnell as senator from western Ukraine? Or is he a senator from Kentucky that has incredible problems right now? Kentucky's dealing with drug problems, inflation, unemployment, you see Rand Paul, who also represents Kentucky, actually cares about his voters. Rand Paul stood up and said, I represent my voters and I swore an oath to the United States Constitution. And I'm not going to just all of a sudden authorize $40 billion to go to some far off distant land when we do not know what success looks like. Will this bring us closer to peace or closer to war? You see, there should be solutions put forward other than just giving Raytheon Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin, complete and total blank checks to be able to have their chance at pillaging the United States treasury. Here's

Why the Bipartisan Support of Biden's $40B Ukraine Aid Package?
"Is the argument in Ukraine beyond the $14 billion that we had already earmarked? There seems to be this bipartisan consensus that this is the way that things must go. To illustrate that point, I want to play a cut for you 71. This is Mitch McConnell saying that this Ukrainian conflict is the most important issue in the world right now. Play cuts of anyone. All agree the most important thing going on in the world right now is the war in Ukraine. We need to do this Ukraine only. And quickly. I think we're on the path to getting that done. Discussions are underway between the House and Senate appropriators on the crafting of the package. It means to be clean of extraneous matters directly related to helping the Ukrainians win the war. This bipartisan consensus could care less about your interests to care less about a baby formula shortage could care less about inflation that spiraling out of control still despite the Biden regime insisting that it's slowing. We've hit another record high gas price today. Average is now at four 40 across the country. So you heard from the Republican establishment, Mitch McConnell talking about how it's the most important issue. What does Pelosi have to say? What are the Democrats have to say? Cut 74. The impact that it is having on food for the world. So when you're home thinking, what is this all about just think about when I was hungry? You fed me. Yeah, that's right. So she's quoting the gospel of Matthew to make a pitch for at least from what we can dig through in these numbers. $20 billion more going into the pockets of the defense industry. Now, again, this is causing such a draw on military stockpiles for the United States military, such as javelins, warheads, that sort of thing, that they're now having to lobby, the regime is having to lobby the defense industry to create more capacity.
First Leading Cause of Inflation Is Biden's Government Spending
"Go ahead And I'm here today to talk about solutions And there's going to be more We're going to have to talk about as well But first I want us to be crystal clear about the problem There are two leading causes of inflation we're seeing today Now ladies and gentlemen the first cause inflation Is spending like drunken marxists When you effectively print more paper you devalue the dollar You devalue its worth So you need more paper a bigger income a bigger pension more money To buy what you bought the day before That's what causes inflation Government causes inflation Government spending causes inflation Government borrowing causes inflation Government policy causes inflation I'm not Nostradamus But over a year ago I told you when they were passing these bills that they were destructive of our economic system they would cause hyperinflation And then along come 19 repute led by Mitch McConnell Who thrown with another trillion or so with so called infrastructure which most has not been used for infrastructure and much has gone into a dark hall So 19 republique in the cynic are also responsible Including Mitch McConnell But before that you'll recall they spent trillions of dollars on COVID but the problem is it didn't go to COVID So the vast majority didn't go to COVID It went to state governments particularly blue governments And the vast majority of the so called infrastructure money 91% of it didn't go to infrastructure
Matthew Peterson on the Rise of the New Right
"It's a lot happening right now, and some call it the rise of the new right. And I want to explore that with the brilliant Matt Peterson Matt. Welcome back to the program. Hey, thanks for having me on. What's happening these days? A lot happening. It feels like we're gaining ground kind of give us your analysis. How big was this week? What did this mean? And what is the new right? Well, first off, this is an enormously important week because JD Vance winning that primary for the U.S. Senate really is this shot heard round the world. They don't want to talk about it. But it has the establishment seething and very afraid. And it really is the first of, I think, a series of dominoes that are going to fall leading into this fall that are going to define this red wave as something that's not coming about due to God bless them, Mitch McConnell and others, but due to strong new leaders on the right who are taking the America first agenda and moving forward. And so really, they're not talking about this enough. This is incredibly important what just happened. Millions of dollars were spent by establishment Republicans against JD Vance. And that win, which now sets them on course to go to the U.S. Senate. It's just, it should be the shot, hurled, heard around the world. This is not over. The American right is not done. There are a number of new leaders who are saying the right things and they're brave to say it now when it's not clear who's going to win. And those people who consistently spread that message, I predict, are going to be the leaders of this red wave moving

Mitch McConnell Says Draft Leak Threatens SCOTUS Security
"Meanwhile, Mitch McConnell took the Senate floor yesterday, cut number four. The same political movement that used a leak to move up the timeline of justice Breyer's retirement process is trying to use yet another leak to make the court less secure and less impartial. Never before, never before in modern history has an internal draft been leaked to the public while the justices were still deciding a case. Never before. Whoever committed this lawless act knew exactly what it could bring about. The justices already require security, less than two weeks ago, an unbalanced person lit himself on fire on the court steps. Less than three years ago, a liberal mob tried to storm the court, shoving past law enforcement and pounding on the doors. Look, everybody knows what kind of climate the far left is trying to fuel. One that is antithetical, antithetical to the rule of law.

Mitch McConnell: The Leak Aimed to Elevate Mob Rule by the Left
"Mitch McConnell has stated that the leak was aimed to elevate mob rule, this is all about intimidation, harassment, pressure on the court, because as we know, the left likes to burn it all down. Angry, angry, rage filled, activists on the left, believe that that's their only recourse when things don't go their way.
"mitch." Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show
"Wrong. You bring up a couple of important points, drag you into the next short segment if your voice will hold out. Folks, I'm talking about album, the book is the stranger in the lifeboat. It's here contacts the show don't go away. Desperado, why don't you come to your senses you've been outright and fans for so long now. Okay, so the new book is called the stranger in the lifeboat and you said something Mitch just a few minutes ago, but that when you first, when you bring books like this to publishers, it always strikes me that it is the people in what we would call the cultural elite circles that are the most hostile to faith or to God. Whereas your average person, they don't have any such discomfort. It's just kind of normal for them. Like you said, people say, God bless you. You know, it's kind of a basic thing. And they don't get tortured about it. It's something that I've written about more recently. My new book, but I've got to tell you that it's an interesting observation that for some reason, when you talked about the Internet, it's almost accelerated a kind of a process of secularization. This illusion that we can be our own gods in a way. Well, I agree a 100% and I mean, I guess we'll all find out in the end. But as I say, I have spent more time the most with people at the end. When you write Tuesdays with morrie, that's kind of what comes with the territory. And I become an expert in a person that people go to when they're in their dying days. And I've met an awful lot of people in their dying days. And I can tell you that what is giving them comfort in their dying days is not how much work they did is not the size of their portfolio is not some digits on account somewhere. In fact, all the wealth that they've acquired all the things that they own aren't even in the room with them. You know, they're in the garage. They're in the bank fault. There's someplace else. And what gives them comfort is that human connection and the belief that there's something that's to come after week after we go. And so I feel sorry sometimes for people who go on a rampage about how dare you say God bless you to me. I mean, you're assuming that I believe in God. Well, okay. Sorry, you know what I mean to offend you, but when that person gets to the end of their life, is that the conversation they really want to remember? It's almost comedic and speaking of which, I don't know about 15 years ago. I live here in Manhattan in New York. I was walking down the street, literally walking to church with my wife and daughter, daughter was in the stroller. And who do I see, but the famous comedian famous to me, professor Irwin Corey, in his mid 90s, walking down the street. I said to my wife, honey, excuse me, you keep walking. I got to talk to this guy. I was like, you know, I was awestruck that I get to meet him. And the first words out of my mouth, he said something he said, I'm 97 or something like that, right? And I said, God, bless you. He immediately said, why should God bless me? He didn't bless the Jews and the Holocaust. He would just this volcano of anger and I thought, wow. That's the response when somebody says, God, bless you. And I thought some people have a hair trigger with this stuff. And it's kind of sad, really, especially at that age. But I know you've experienced it too. It's a bizarre thing. There's a wounding where there's something going on. And they don't seem to understand how bleak the worldview is when you say, okay, there's no God, and then what? And then what? Nothing. I think people have become so polarized. So tribal in their politics and in their cultural things, whatever, that this just goes along with it. And it's like, well, your concept of God can't possibly be mine or your God can't be mine, or we don't have anything income. We always look for what's different between us, but I remember back to Maury to take this full circle. When I was sitting with mori one time and we turn on the TV and there was some footage from a war that was going on in Serbia, I think at the time. And he started to cry. I said, why are you crying? He said, this is just so terrible. Those poor people. And I said, yeah, but you don't know any of them. Have you ever been to Serbia? No, do you even know what's going on there? No. I said, so why are you crying? I mean, tears were falling down. And he said, Mitch, when you get to the end, and you realize what life is all about. You realize we are more alike than different. And you feel the pain of every other person who is suffering because you're suffering. And to me, that means we are all children of God. And we all ought to realize how much we have in common instead of our knee jerk reaction being, oh no, you can't be right, because you have your take on it and I have my take on it. So you're the enemy. And I'm right. We are all in this together. Beautiful place to end. Mitch album, the book is the stranger in the lifeboat. Congratulations, and thank you, sir. It's a pleasure Eric. Thank you. The I haven't really woken up. Until I've had my McDonald's breakfast deal and I know this is true because before breakfast, I put my phone in the refrigerator and couldn't find the keys that were already in my hand.

"Hey folks, I've got to tell you a secret about relief factor that the father son owners Pete and Seth. Talbott have never made a big deal about, but I think it is a big deal. I really do. They sell the three week quick start pack for just 1995 to anyone struggling from pain like neck shoulder back, hip or knee pain, 1995, about a dollar a day. But what they haven't broadcasted much is that every time they sell a three week quick start, they lose money. In fact, they don't even break even until about four to 5 months after if you keep ordering it. Friends, that's huge. People don't keep ordering relief factor month after month if it doesn't work. So yes, Pete and Seth are literally on a mission to help as many people as possible deal with their pain. They really do put their money where their mouths are. So if you're in pain from exercise or even just getting older or the three week quick start from 1995, let's see if we can get you out of pain too, but relief factor dot com relief factor dot com or call 805 108 three 8 four 805 108 three 8 four relief factor dot com. I use it, it works. Folks, I'm talking to Mitch album, who has written a novel called stranger in the lifeboat. Mitch, it seems like this is a parable. Would that be right? This kind of a parable that you're telling me? Because I don't want people to write to me and say, the way he describes God is not, it's not accurate, according to my faith, whatever. This is meant to be a parable meant to get people thinking. It's not some new age version of God where you're leading people to the devil's secretly. Okay. I just want to be very clear. But you were just talking about the question of why do people have to die? Again, these are the ultimate questions. Everybody has them. Some people are afraid to admit it. But everybody wants to know what's the story? Why do I die? Why is their death? Why everything? So talk about that. Well, so in the book, there's this moment where one of the characters asks the God guy who claims to be God, well, why do people have to die? Why did you take my wife? I loved it. Why did you take my wife? And he sobbing. And God says the character who says he's got I'm not it's a thriller, I can't give it away, but let's just say for the moment. The answer is, well, why is it that when people die on earth, people are always saying, why did God take them? Maybe a better question would be why did God give them to us in the first place? What did we do to deserve their love, their sweetness, their memories? They said, didn't you have those kinds of things with your wife? Those memories. And he says every day. And the God character says, well, those memories are a gift, but their absence is not a punishment. I'm not cruel. I know you before you're born. I know you after you die. This earth that you're on here now is just part of the journey. I know that you cry when your loved ones die and leave this earth, but I can assure you, they're not crying. And for me, I wrote that as much, not just because I believe it, but as much for the readers as I did for myself, because I don't know how much you know about me, but I operate an orphanage in Haiti where I go every single month and I've been there for the last 12 years and about 8 years ago, we adopted one of the kids from the orphanage who had a brain tumor. Her name was chica, and we brought her to America to try to find a cure. And she lived with us for two years as our daughter as we traveled around the world trying to find a cure. And in the end, we weren't able to, what she died from, nobody survives. It's called DIPG. And at the time, I was very angry with God. You know, I was like, wait a minute. She was born three days before an earthquake in Haiti. She survived the earthquake when a building fell down around her and she was three days old and she lived, her mother died two years later. She was bought to our orphanage. Then she gets a brain tumor. And then she dies. How can you be a loving God? And do that to a 7 year old. And I'm sure there are many people out there who have lost children who say the same thing. And so for a while, it was all about why did you take her from us until as time passed, I started to realize, well, wait a minute. My wife and I had wanted that have kids when we were married. But we got married kind of old and it didn't happen. And here we were suddenly in our mid 50s and we had this 5 year old child sleeping at the base of our bed and waking us up for breakfast and joking and laughing and doing all the wonderful things that could bring into your lives. This was an answer to our prayer from 15 years earlier. Which is what I mean when I say God has his own timetable. And here was the stanchion to our prayer and for two years we had this amazing, wonderful family relationship with this beautiful little girl. So maybe instead of saying, why did you take her, I just say, why did I deserve to have her? What did I do to weave a warrant? Those two amazing years. And that was the way I dealt with it. And I think that's the way maybe a lot of people have to deal with loss, and that's why I put it in the stranger in the life, but a little bit like John Milton Paradise lost, you're justifying the ways or trying to justify the ways of God to man, trying to explain things that are not easily explicable. Listening to you reminds me just recently I watched for the second or third time shadowlands with Anthony Hopkins, the story of C. S. Lewis, losing his wife of just a few years joy Gresham. And it's a similar thing. The pain is real, the loss is real. And Lewis better than most tries to make sense of it. And to some extent, that's what we're all doing in life. We're trying to make sense of everything. I guess I find it interesting that there are so many people that seem wedded to what we call it the atheistic narrative because it seems so bleak and hopeless. And I guess maybe it's a reaction more than anything to some negative versions of faith that they have seen. Do you ever get angry atheists confronting you about why are you got out there constantly? No. Honestly, Eric, I think it's something else besides what you mentioned. I think it's a sense that we can control our own destiny, and we can create our own little godlike kingdoms. It's very interesting that up until the year 2000, church membership, synagogue membership, houses of worship membership, stayed pretty even. It was about 70% in America. You know, up a couple points down a couple of points, but pretty even through the whole century. And then since 2000 till now, it's dropped below 50%. It's in the 40s now. Well, what happened in 2000? The Internet. That's what happened. And now the people create their own kind of little kingdoms with followers. I mean, even listen to the words, how many followers do you have? There's something very, very disturbing about that. Followers. Let's be honest. How many followers do you have? How many disciples do you have? Yeah, pretty sick. How many people give you a thumbs up like and are telling you they're with you? So when you can kind of create your own little universe, you feel like you don't have a need for God. And then all of a sudden you find yourself out in a lifeboat where your Internet doesn't work and you don't have a signal and suddenly what's the first thing you cry out for? God, please help me. And you know, maybe there are angry atheists or angry people who don't like what I'm bringing up, but I don't really hear from them. I think they're mostly concerned about themselves. And it wouldn't matter anyhow. This is what I believe. And I think it's important in conversely, I hear much more from people like yourself and millions of other people around the world. How thank you for writing something like this. It comforted me. You know, I was dealing with these questions myself. And how do I write anything that hasn't comforted me? I don't put books out to try to aim at people's emotions. I write straight from things that I've gone through myself and I think if you do that and you keep your eye on God, you're not going to do anything.

"There's a lot of great resources. Yeah what what would be a great resource that you would drive somebody to as a beginning point. Well i would for handsome. Anyone who has a huntsman patient. Please let us know we would love to help you. But what normally can't help is combination of counseling and of pharmacotherapy so that is using combination nicotine replacement like we talked about and then the two medications that are verana. Cleon and those are prescription. So i do think it's helpful to talk to your provider that you're trying to to quit. Because they can prescribe educations and they can even give you brief counseling and also the quit line offers Free counselling as well as some some free nicotine replacement therapy and there are also some apps that are free like with smokefree dot. Gov which are really nice. You can play. put your goal. If you wanna quit they can send you text reminders. And that can be helpful as well. Well congratulations mitch lira. Thank you very much for being on the show and answering some of mitch's questions and We all get together in another year and celebrate three agreed for it. I mean is that. Should i not have said that lire did. Did i just screw screw things up. I think it's great more likely mid to be celebrating in a year. I wouldn't want to be there doing. Thank you and thanks for carrying about menzel. Super sweet episode. It's always fun to celebrate things especially something like somebody quitting nicotine for two years again. Congratulations to mitch on his two year. Quiver serie if you want to reach out to mitch and say congratulations. That would be awesome..

"That's what we we recommend To us especially when you're transitioning we recommend to use nicotine replacement therapy combination initially meaning using nicotine patch and a short acting like nicotine gum and we work with the people to slowly used less and less nicotine and sometimes you. You have to use nicotine. Gum long-term occasionally. This is not something you'd need to do on a regular basis hopefully but it's always healthier than the alternative which is going back to smoking or vaping. I just want to say one more thing. Because you've said you've this was the seventh attempt i want. I wanted just to say that is very very normal. On average average. Must people take about seven attempts to successfully be able to quit just because it is so hard to do and and the key to that is every time you try and you. Maybe you're not successful. you'll learn something about what is working and what didn't work so it's a process and it's not about getting it right the first time it's just about not giving up on trying. Yeah and the double lake down on what you just said. The thing that worked for me was that dual system right. That had the patch is the first time i really committed to the patch and the gum and doing them both at the same time really kind of helped used me off and they're still. I still had like mood swings galore. Every time i switched to a lower dose button. It yeah it was. I think more tough for my maybe not more but he was also tough for my partner. Having to deal with always. Yeah it's it. Smoking affects not just you and everyone else and quitting also affects you and everybody else so it takes a team and it's it helps you know for a lot of people to just say i'm trying to quit. Please be patient with me. While i'm going through this process of having to readjust to laura nicotine levels because the brain craves that and you know a lot of the symptoms that you feel are being irritable or Maybe frustrated anxious and restless as you're trying to readjust to a lower nicotine levels but it does help in the transition to use nicotine replacement or You know the other options are some oral medications that we can use to help with those symptoms And it makes it easier. I'm glad that you were using them. And i'm wondering i think you know. This is interesting for me to hear this. Because i had kind of that same impression. That mitch had like you quit smoking. And everything's good in great. And i think mitch words earlier before we started the show with sunshine and unicorns and it hasn't been or is it. Sounds like it's it's a challenge but it is interesting to hear you. Refer to this as a chronic disease like you said like hypertension like managing that like it's a daily battle but do you ever find that there. Is that point where a person gets to the point where they have no more desire to smoke than a person who has ever has never smoked. Like will mitch ever reach that point. It's hard to say..

"And if when you go to him and try to share this stuff and his response is draining, he ain't the Juan boo boo? He is the person who started you on a journey you needed to go on. Okay, but him not like wanting to be with you, does it now mean you undo all that work? You see what I'm saying? It's like, I think it's very I'm like, oh God, you had to both move to Washington, but you know, you both had a dream. But 45 minutes is a pretty good amount of time to be apart from somebody. Like, you know, for a 45 minute drive away, but it's like, you don't need his recognition for you to be. The person you are trying to be. Yeah. That's one of the most difficult things I think about, I don't know about adulthood. I was gonna say adulthood, whatever, about being human. Let's just go with all ages. Is the idea that there are just going to be some people that maybe you've wronged in a relationship, but there's a friendship or romantic relationship. For whatever reason, you just have to learn. You're the animal with it. You're the asshole. And their narrative, you're the asshole and you have to be like, you have to be okay with like, all right, you know what? There's not much I can do about it. I just have to learn to deal with it. And in fact, as the caller said, the attempts to keep rectifying that make things seemingly make things worse. Right. Right. I feel pressure. I feel this guy's pain. And I and I do think the reveal at the end is really the intention. And I will say you're never going to get what you want from him from your ex-boyfriend. 'cause for a while I was listening, I'm like, oh, he wants to apologize and make amends and say I'm sorry. But that's not what you want. What you want is to get back together with him. You want him to want you back and you're not going to get that. Probably. I don't think you are. Yeah. He's not telling you this. And to also understand, I know he's going through what he's going through and he's in therapy and he's meds, but what's not, I'm not hearing is really an understanding of what your ex has went through and is going through. I know that's hard to hear. But your ex might have been brutalized by this. It might be hard on this. And he may need to not get he might be going through his own pain and his own healing. I've been in a relationship where it was somebody who was not on their meds. And it takes a bad effect on you. It's like not it's hard. To him, I just think it's 45 minutes is plenty to stay away. And you're not going to get what you want. And you talk to a therapist, talk to do whatever you can, write out your amends, but you've said everything you want to to this guy. And it's never going to you're never going to get the answer that you want. And I wanted to say one thing about closure because I have a little different take on it. I agree with you that you're not going to get I happen to think you never get closure. I happen to think there's certain things that we hear like closure that aren't real. I think that you move on and things get easier, but I don't believe that we ever fully it's in our DNA, and it's in our memory, and it's fine. It's who we are, what we've done and the pain we've gone through. We want to move on, but it's there. And you make space for it, but I don't know if you ever really get closure in life with stuff. I think things just become less painful. You learn from them. They may be matter less, but they're in your memory. You're in your memory, so I don't know if you ever totally get closer in life. I totally get that. I guess for me, I guess how I define closure may be in situations like me coming to a place of acceptance. And that is like the harder. That's the thing I think that is like, you know, you want somebody to kind of absolve you and sometimes you have to just absolve yourself. Oh, yeah. I did dirty, I said, sorry, but they're still mad. And I have to let them be mad. But that's okay. Yeah. I agree with Mitch, but I guess what I'm curious about. I was like, what does it mean to come to acceptance? One of the things that I talk about in therapy, I'm just going to say a lot. I used to at least was like that there are all these kind of like we say all this stuff. But I don't know what any of that stuff means physically, right? What does it mean in my body to like we use a lot of like. Physical metaphors about like mental things? And I just don't know what any of this putting up barriers and stuff like that. If there's something I can't say to someone, I kind of feel that barrier, but except it's like what's the change in your body or whatever. To be like, I finally reached a place of acceptance. I think it is, okay, so you know how you and I both like live like we will think we can think of something we did or said 20 years ago and still feel really like we get a not in our stomach? Oh yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Chris stalker. Yes. So you're selling a fight with somebody from 20 years ago. Exactly, or I can't believe I said or did that and it's like yeah yeah, girl are you a 12? It's like being able to not have that not anymore. For me, you know, or like, sure. I have some especially boys. Like I was so into guys and it was like the thirst, the drama, the energy, the putting on that person. You know, nobody needs to be putting any 20 year old boy on a pedestal. Okay. And I shouldn't have been doing it when I did it. But to realize two where it's like, that was a lot to put on that person. Especially a person who didn't reciprocate the feelings. Yeah. But I can say that to you laughing now and not feel like, oh my God, you're so embarrassed, you know? There are very few people I would cross the street if I saw. I guess. Yeah. We don't have to say hi, but I don't have to ride. But I don't have to hide, you know, behind a bush. Yeah, that is a big one. I don't have to hide from me. I know it sounds stupid, but it is a big one. Yeah. Yeah, it's complicated. I think another reason why the closure thing is that I think at least for me, I should be over something by now. I should be this. I should be that. I said I was closure and I'm not. Yeah. And to go, it's okay. You don't have to beat yourself up if you're like, 'cause stuff comes up out of nowhere and you're like, it's all like a long fucking process. But I feel this guy. I hope he stays away. I hope he. Well, they've got the dog situation. That's what I'm trying to say. I had an idea like a positive step, get your own dog. But he's still gonna love his dogs that he had with him? I look, yeah, I don't know. Okay, but like you don't have to like stop sharing custody or whatever you're doing right now with the dogs, but get another dog. That's just yours. Interesting. I don't know. Also, this is also hard too, 'cause I was in a relationship where we broke up and we had a dog and we were sharing it and it was hard because and my therapist actually said to like we talked about it. And I made a decision to let him out of the dog. Because as much as painful as it fucking was, you kind of make a decision like, well, is it worth it for your own mental health? To keep hurting yourself. And it's such a personal thing because it's hard to give a obviously a dog. You know, we all love dogs, everyone here. But I think that's great advice for him to get his own dog. He has his own dog..

"To catch up, I really recommend it. Obviously, Mitch has many more credits that you heard in the introduction. But that is what really spoke to my heart. Speaking of references like Sid Caesar and like references to the past. Oh, it makes me so happy to know that these old references are in your heart. I love it. I love it. Yeah. Well, I grew up in both, I think animaniacs and tiny tunes made so many and The Simpsons made so many references to stuff that existed before I was born from 20s and 30s and 40s. And so I have this repository of references in my head that no one else sees. I used to also like, I grew up watching SCTV, which is like a big influence on me. But or like to watch if they would make a reference or I hated not knowing things. So like if somebody made a reference to somebody, I was like, what is that? Who's that actor? I want to know that. So I always like, and it was. And that's how you win game show money. Yeah. Okay. That's how you win the game show money. But it's like, why as an 8 year old, do I know who may west is? That kind of yes. Like the big question I want on that game show about Hollywood showdown was an Oscar question and it was there are two actors who've been nominated for best actor more than any other actor and yet neither one of them have won, and they said name one of them. And I knew both of them. Well, I said, is it Peter or tool? And then so I won and then during the commercial break, the host asked me because you want to guess the other one. I said, is it Richard burden? And he said, how the fuck do you know this? I don't know. Since then, Peter tool got nominated one more time, so he was the most nominated never won. Never won. Peter O'Toole. Poor Peter. Peter. We got questions from Instagram, Twitter, Gmail. And of course, voicemail, which is what we're going to start with three two three 5 two four 7 8 three 9 is the number we love. What do you call in? Here we go. Hi, Andy and Naomi. First and foremost, accomplishments and accolades. Andy, thank you so much for showing me what it needs to show up for your partner. Relentlessly, I'm a first time caller, longtime listener and I just remember like listening to you and every single time. You just show up for Naomi and support her in any way that you can. Naomi, what can I say? I have been a fan of yours since I saw you on Twitter queen. But anyway, so I know you have a short amount of time. I wanted to get your advice because I'm having a really hard. I'm going through a really hard time in my life right now. I was with my partner for four years and of course we felt to the COVID careers and we ended up breaking up. We had a really big life together, but unfortunately, I was really toxic and the relationship because I had a lot of mental health issues that went unaddressed. So, you know, I was controlling I was addicted. I was just a horrible person. And so we actually separated and we were living in California at the time. And we had really big plans to move to Washington, which is why I'm at now. And I didn't realize that he was actually moving up here on his own as well. So now we both moved from California. We live about 45 minutes away. And we kind of started I went to therapy on my meds now and I'm having a really hard time because I think now confronting all of the really bad things that I did in our relationship and we are slowly talking because we unfortunately have to separate our dogs, which has been really hard for me. And you know in talking with him, I can see that he really just wants things to be easy. And I keep doing this thing where I just go down these really emotional conversations and like he points it out every single time, but it's really draining and I see it myself. So I guess my question for you is how do I should I just leave him alone and try and move on on my own or do you have any advice like Naomi? I could totally use one of your pep talks like if you have one in you to give me like I'm just really lost. I want to be better and I just keep I feel like I keep talking shut up when I'm just even with the best intentions. I end up going down this path and I hate how I am. So I just really want to know if you guys have any advice that you could give me because I want to win him back, I guess? So thank you so much. Oh, that was a bomb at the end. I know. That was on heel. That was absolutely God. He breaks my heart. No, I feel I feel him in my bones. I really do. These feelings. Well, okay. I was going to say, I mean, do you want to start in terms of pep talk? Yes, I do. Yes, I do. Okay. 'cause this is something that I firmly believe that I feel like I need to just shout from the rooftops all the time. We have this prevailing thought in society that you quote get closure. That you have to go to a person or do something. No. Closure is something you give yourself. So the thing is you're realizing you did a lot of mess up things in this relationship and you want to show this person that you know it that you're better that you're working on it. But he doesn't need to know or see that for any of that stuff to be true. And so it seems like you're looking to him for this look, look, I'm better, I'm better. And as you said at the very end, which is so messy, you should have said that up top. That you were like, I want to win him back..

"But I had a girlfriend like for in college that was it was terrible. Terrible relationship. But I had not really been with a guy until I went to grad school. UCLA. And my first boyfriend was his name was Eric. I don't know. I don't know what's happening. Anyway, I'm saying was because he actually ended up changing his name, which is a whole different story and his bizarre when people do that. So and so I knew he liked me and I had my best friend had just come out, so I came out for Eric and I started telling people, but we had like we went out for like ten months and my family did not know. I wasn't living at home and then he broke up with me and I was hard broken. You know, you think, oh, by the time it almost like 25, then you're like, by the time I'm 25, oh, I've experienced every emotion. And then I'm like, what the fuck is this? I can't stop crying and like, but it forced me to go into therapy and come out to my family. So what was the question? Were you came out where you dating, but basically no, I came out as I was dating. And then that was so that was the first guy. I'd really been with. And now, are you someone who is like a relationship person? Are you a hookup person? Like, do you not trust these hoes in these streets? You know what I mean? What is your approach to that? It's stuff. That's complicated. I want to say I'm a relationship person because that's what I believe. But the proof in the pudding is I've been more not in a relationship than in one. I'm dating somebody now. But I want a relationship. And I definitely feel like I'm want to be just one on one with somebody. I have hooked up. I'm not a big hookup guy. It's not, you know, I've never been a big club guy. I just never like, that's never been my thing. Not any judgment of it. It's not, I'm not comfortable with that, I guess. But I so it's weird because I always wanted to be a relationship, but I've been more not. But when I have been in a relationship like, I mean, Eric was like ten months and then I was with somebody for two years. And that was long stretches in between, and then I was the long stretch and that was with somebody for about 5 and a half years. And I'm dating this guy named Josh now, but it's been like really a ten years or so since I really I've dated but I feel like, oh, I'm calling in my boyfriend. Like that time. And yeah, so I think there's like there's some damage in me that wants something, but is afraid to so really be vulnerable and go after it. Does that make any sense? What's different about Josh or what was different about the guy that was 5 and a half years? Oh, that's different about you. I think it's me. I think they are different human beings. But I think. Man enough can't be said about this last year, but like being alone and really how it really thinking about stuff and really because I've been in therapy, but it really was like I really need to take care of my shit because I'm like having sleep problems and I'm panicking in the middle. I'm going to die alone. I need to talk about some of the stuff. And then I have some friends of mine. This is pretty heavy for all couples therapy. But I had some friends who had done group therapy and they loved it. The way they talked about, like, I wanted to go. So I got involved and I found out about group therapy last year and it fucking helped so much. Different than one on one for me because I have issues. I'm fine with one on one like this, talking, but like groups, stress me out. And I get very quiet and I can't I'm not somebody who's like you know when you get a bunch of funny people together and everyone's out bit doing bits. I go quiet. I don't like I don't like being in a writer's room. I don't like, I just want to write on my own or with one person. I'm not. But it was helpful because it just be with a group of people and, you know, have people and to be vulnerable in front of them and have them call you out on stuff. And to be okay with that. Oh wait, they could do that. I thought it was gonna be each of you just sharing your stories. You know, or whatever you're feeling in that moment. And be like, well, yeah, no one's really rude and somebody's like facilitating the whole thing, but I'm sure every group is different. But ours is like, yeah, if you want to tell somebody, I mean, people no one's abusive, but if you want to tell somebody like, I'm sorry. I think you're kind of full of shit right now. It's okay. And how to deal with someone saying that to you and going or someone's saying that really pissed me off,.

"Yeah, yeah. But it's interesting though, because also though, and this is what I'm used to. And Andy and I have talked about this a lot because he says he is a quote unquote waspy Jew. Because what I am used to is exactly what you're saying your parents were, which were like direct. Literally like, I'm disappointed. You need to read about how this is not gonna happen. And it's like the least there's an open dialog where you know where you stand with them. Yes and no with my family. There was that very Jewish in your faith, the level of discourse and my family was yelling when we'd go to Thanksgiving or Passover, like my grandparents, you know, all that. But there was also like a lot of like maybe like a waspy thing where like we don't secrets like we don't talk about this with other people or embarrassment or like, yeah, and then added to it, I had my own like secret of being in the closet. So I learned how to like swallow a lot and then also exist in a family where people would like tell you you're being fucking crazy right now. You're crazy. You know, so and yelling. So much yelling. Oh, yeah, there's a lot of yelling. Yeah, that part for all the we're not gonna be direct about our emotions. There was still a lot of like, well, I'm not gonna walk down the stairs to talk to you. I am going to scream from the top of the stairs to see his dinner ready yet. Yeah, and also we felt like there was a private and a public face. In private, there was a lot of yelling, but in public, were like, you know, you're right. You're yelling at the restaurant at each other. And then the waiter comes up and you're like, oh, hi. You know that waiter that waiter. Yeah. That was us. But in the home, it's just screaming about. Where's the off the COVID? Why haven't you found it yet? All your long. COVID went on a pillow. It went out for months. The Seder could not end. I wonder how many people get that reference? The often coming. Oh God. Well, by the way, I'm gonna copyright this right now. A movie called the never ending Seder. Because they can't have lost the offer code and they refuse to end the Seder and it just goes on for months. Oh God. Copyrighting that right now right here. And it's not going to be available on streaming. It's only in theaters. Absolutely. Absolutely. You have to go pay for this and go. Only at film forum. Only at one theater in New York. I mean, that was also kind of my nightmare that never ending seator because the last sator we went to. This would have been three years ago, probably when we were at your parents house. And I was the youngest person at the table. And I had to find the off we go. And I was like 35. Wow. That's amazing to be the younger person at 35 and have to do a child like fake. I know and then the feeling that they were all watching me and I was like, well, I'm old. I'm an adult. This shouldn't be hard for me. But I also don't know where they put it. It was like, it was just kidding called maybe. That's not what my parents saw me. You always do that voice for them. But they talk like that? No, no. That's not a millimeter like that. Like they're in a Neil Simon play. Exactly. But I remember just like, and I felt like it took me like a couple minutes too long. You know? Because again, it was like the whole I was like, okay, is the whole house? Like, in play here? Where should I stick to an area? You haven't told me. I also like the youngest person supposed to read. I love that we're talking about Passover, so the four questions is that the young and so for a long time, I was the youngest person and there were all these kids after me, but I was, I don't know why I always had to read it. I think I was the youngest one who could read Hebrew. So they asked me to I don't know. I kept getting four questions longer than I should have. You sing in them? No, I never say. Okay, this is now too much. We gotta put this sizzle on this episode. So like Mitch, how long into you sort of pursuing this and doing stuff is your parents stop worrying or stop implying it wasn't gonna happen. They never stopped worrying. But I never stop working. They stopped, you know what? It's a really good question. When I was in college, when I was an undergraduate in college, I did they were the articles stopped being put on my bed. I did a play at school. We did speaking of Neil Simon. We did Brighton beach memoirs. And I got the lead in that. And I did it. And then it weirdly sort of I haven't thought about this, but it really sort of changed the dynamic a little bit. They saw they my dad my dad would tell me that he would get so nervous when I was performing and then that show made him realize, oh, he's okay. And so they stopped with the articles. I don't know that they ever got to the point where they're not concerned or worried about me even still, but my dad's passed away, but my mom's still alive. But. I think it just kind of went on and I started and then when I got involved in the groundlings, they would come and see that and then I made it through the groundlings. I got them in company and they would come see shows such as my mom was really into coming to see the shows that it just sort of like, you know, at some point, what are they going to do? This is what I'm doing. And now I'm not getting younger. And after a while, you're like, oh fuck, I got to make this work. I can't. I can't start over with something right now. And I think that sort of changed something with them. And then when I started to get some jobs or guest stars and stuff and they would see me and I think it just made them so proud and so happy that it just never. They never brought it up again. Are you sure you want to do this? Okay. Yeah. But it's weird 'cause I've mentioned coming out, but like I remember when I came out in the 90s and my father was my parents were going through a divorce that year and my father was really like the only kind of tough reaction to me coming out. He did not like it. And he had his whole process, which was not dissimilar to the articles thing where he wanted me to like, are you sure you're gay? You know, he would let my dad would listen to a.m. radio conservative a.m. radio and he wanted me to go get conversion therapy and all that stuff. And I was like, at least, I told him like I don't do that, but I think you need therapy. You know, to talk about this, but, you know, my dad would have done that. But it was a whole process of him not accepting this and which he did, eventually, you know, but it took a long time, but, you know, he wasn't accepting at first. Yeah. Yeah. Was he one of those like bare knuckle bruisers from The Bronx type Jews? No. Well, no. I mean, that was just, look, my dad and I were oil and water for most of our relationship and it was until the end where we had some sort of like an understanding and like an ease with each other, which is awesome that I got to get to that point with my dad, but my dad was like sports guy, baseball. I put out like a bruiser, and he wanted like he wanted a son. I have an older sister, but apparently my mom tell me he cried when I was very old school misogyny. But he cried when I was born 'cause but man, I was not the son he wanted. 'cause I was not into any of that shit. I was in sports and we would just fight, you know? I just wanted to play with my sister's dolls and watch movies. And get you to care about like RBIs and no. Baseball thing? I was like, what's an RBI? My dad, my dad, this was a conversation. This is how bad communication was my father. And we would go like we go to dinner the two of us. His way of connecting with me would be like testing me on the baseball teams and he'd be like, oh my God, this is terrible. I can't go, well you can be like, so it's the New York and I would have to go Yankees. Yes, and it would be the Baltimore oriole. That was our conversation, but I would memorize that stuff, yeah..

Mitch is someone that Andrew and I came to love in quar. But Mitch has been out here. Okay, he's been out in the streets. He is, you've seen him in many of Paul feig film, movies like bridesmaids, spy. He's also been on the TV show all rise, which is on CBS season three going to drop on own 'cause that's where strong black women live. And he's just a great guy. Also, our favorite thing since I love plugin people's IG, Mitch Silva and drew drew, you have a very fun little web series called two old queens who just have a minute to catch up. It's literally one of the best, this is not hyperbole. It is one of the best things online. I look forward to you know Naomi. This is the second week in a row. We know I ripped Andrew farmer's IG. Because of his Instagram front facing character videos that we have fallen in love with Mitch because of his comedic videos online. Yes, and it's just references. Just esoteric random references to old Hollywood. To old Hollywood exactly old famous people, and it's just very funny and brilliant. Just like all of the stuff I've seen, Mitch do all of his videos online are extremely funny. Classic, a classic talent. This was great, because we didn't know Mitch going in. I know. So we really came into this cold. You know, it was very much like tell us your story. And who baby? What a story. What a story he had to tell. Oh, and we're gonna spill the beans at the moment. But I will tell you, we talk about a thing he was on on TV and he sent us a clip of it, which we will put on our Instagram. Absolutely. So okay, so right now, honestly, just go to a couple therapy pod on IG and then you can thank us after. Yeah. Yeah, by the way, before we get into the episode. A little bit of housekeeping. Someone sent us an a comment. Okay, okay. I've heard of it. I've heard of a comment. Now we can't. We get a lot of comments. Can't read them all. No, no, no, no. I also try not to, because you know what? If I don't want to read the bad, I can't just be cheering picking the goods. I don't listen to death about us. I know, but just in general. I just don't be looking. This is so this is about an advice question. I forget which episode this was exactly. Maybe you can remember. Hi, Naomi and Andy. I've been thinking about the caller during your recent episode who wanted advice about whether they should date a coworker and haven't been able to stop thinking about it. Do you remember what episode that was? No. There's a couple weeks ago. Yep. This is also the first time I'm sending an Instagram DM and hope I'm doing it right. You're doing great, sweetie. As someone who's successfully dated a coworker we're married now. Wow. I have some thoughts. The caller was vague about their specific situation. If I remember right. It was exactly three lines. Like, should I date a coworker? Bad idea or great. Exactly. And I'm like, I need to know everything else. The car was vague about their specific situation, but most usually have written policies around what people can date before it becomes an HR dumpster fire. Okay. These rules are generally based on power relations. Exactly. Covering legal basis. But if people aren't too different departments or chains of command, even if they're at different levels, they might be allowed to date. Not to mention that we're still in a damn pandemic. It's really hard to meet people right now, and a lot of people are changing jobs and careers, plus a lot of people find partners spouses at work. They're just not telling you about it. Here. A study by bamboo and online HR platform found that 22% of married couples in the U.S. met at work, actually, you and I met at work. Okay, come through with the statistics. We love a comment that has a backup, okay? Give me those footnotes on these site your sources. Your sources. That's what we say. Has that a T-shirt, site your source? But it has to say honey. Honey. And a British YouGov study hold the percent of partners that met at work at 18%. This is a global phenomenon. Global. I think the caller should read their employee manual way their options. They're not the first two people to feel a spark while brushing elbows at the water cooler. It might have more than they think. Okay, I like this person. I feel like they must write for like glamour. Something like feeling a spark, while brushing elbows at the water cooler. That was very well written, very fun, very flirty. I really like that person. We've got sources. We've got fun, we've got flirty. That's how you write a comment. Slide your sources honey. Is that your story since I need? Should that be a new thing? No, now you're just overdoing it. Like, I don't think so honey. One minute. Whatever you have one minute at the end of the end of every episode, our guest will have one minute to cite the source. Do you think they said they read anything? They said during the episode, they have to look up sources. Like anything, but it can be something they read or watch. You could even sort, you can even sign a TikTok. You know me. I love saying I read an article when really I just watched a TikTok. Nami coming up. We got two online shows. Well, one I would call more of a hangout than a show. It's a hangout set to hang out. It's a hang sesh. We thought we would do something fun for the Patreon community. And on Saturday, November 6th at 5 p.m. PST, we are doing a zoom hangout for the Patreon crowd. And so if you're subscribed to the Patreon, if you're part of the community, we'll just be doing a zoom. You can ask questions. Yeah. You can, what's another thing you can do on Zoom now? I don't know. You can let us yell at us, but, you know, then it will end. The zoom will end very quickly if it becomes too hateful. That's what might make it very awkward. Well, of course, it'll be true. But I assume you yell and then you leave. You know what I mean? Whoever yells, they're like, yell, and they get out. But anyway, that's gonna be an hour, Saturday, 11.6. And then for a real streaming show, free for.

I want to tell you about Bobby Bonnie a gay if you're not familiar with what Bobby Bania Day is we will explain it to you. It really is absolutely remarkable. I know a couple people wanted to chime in on. Uh, well, in essence, what is the lottery? The Anheuser Busch lottery for a free beer. The Michigan Lottery. The incentive, of course. Go get vaccinated in. You could have a chance at wonderful CASS and prizes. Um I just don't think it's going to work. I'm not being skeptical. I'm not being pessimistic. I just think in these times, people they have their minds made up and there isn't gonna be a whole heck of a lot. That can convince people to change their minds. 808 590 wjr Matt has been hanging on Matt certainly want to get your thoughts. Thanks for calling in on 7 60 W. Jr. How are you, Matt? I'm good. Thanks for taking my call. Um, am unvaccinated. I went back to work in June of last year. Um, have been directly exposed to at three times. Indirectly, the fourth time. Um, luckily, I haven't caught it. I don't know if I'm immune to it, but I don't trust any of the testing. Don't want to be tested, and I don't trust He the government with this whole vaccine thing. Um, my biggest, I guess complaint that I wanted him. Wait. Save today is that the other day? Paul W. Smith in the morning said that unvaccinated people tend to go swimming in expressway via docks. And I took that as a huge insulting. I'm seriously disappointed. Well, you know, it is one of those things. And I appreciate the phone call and certainly the perspective here on 7 60. W J r. I mean, I work with Paul I considered Paula friend. I think Paul was making light of it, knowing Paul the way that I do. I don't want to speak for him. I'm sure he's Pretty much of the same opinion, but he thinks you should do it, but he's not going to look down at you again. I don't want to speak for Paul. But, um, I tell you definitively the way I feel I'm not going to look down at you matter anybody else in features out to do it. I get it. I vacillated mightily, Um As I mentioned I, as recent as About two months ago. I was still sitting there gone now. No, I'm not gonna do it. Talk to my doctor. Did the pros and cons game and I did it. You know, no regret. I don't have any regret out of it now, if a third arm suddenly appears out of my spinal column. You know? Yeah. I might have some regret at that point in time. I joke a kid, but, um, does it make me feel any more? What's the word? I'm looking for? Secure? No. That's just for me. If it does for you. Great. If you're vaccinated, you feel more secure. You feel safer. Well, good for you. Peace of mind is awesome. Do I feel any more safer? Secure from getting covid again? No. But at the same time again can consider the source. I'm somebody that had it. It wasn't bad for me. Thank the good Lord. And you know, by all accounts, uh, if you do get again, evidently, evidently being the keen operative word it doesn't hit you as hard so I don't know. Just Someone decided to have talked to my daughter, my doctor about it, You know, Um, my family is about half and half. You know, without mentioning names. Some family members did it. Some family members didn't I'm not going to Turn my nose down in any of them. You know, As a matter of fact, um, Mike Parsons and Dave Rigger. I'm having a big old barbecue at my house on Saturday. We're having the the annual third of July barbecue. I shouldn't say annual because it's actually the first because I'm going to be at the Rocket Mortgage Classic on on Saturday or Excuse me on Sunday. So I just told everybody Hey, if you want to come over on Saturday, come over. This isn't for my vaccinated relatives only. If your unvaccinated you're more than welcome to you know, so That's one of those things that we're going to keep debating about it. We're going to keep going back and forth about it. We are going to talk about this last Year and four months for the rest of our days. You know, um, one of the things that I told my kids when this first started happening. Is, you know, as a parent I am supposed to be able to draw on my past experiences and I'm supposed to be able to draw on. Um you know, those life experiences make me say all I saw something similar to this and 87. Oh, yeah. This reminds me of the summer in 92. I told my kids point blank right away. Hey, guys, you know, I I usually have some Witty comparable some analogy to a time gone by. Nope. I got nothing to compare this to. I got absolutely nothing. We were all flying. You know blindly into something that none of us had ever experienced before. Sean, you remember back when 9 11 happened? And everyone said, Oh, that's so pre 9 11 sort of as a as a reference to a more innocent, naive time before the world change. That's kind of how I feel about pre covid and post covid. I mean, we talked about it on the show where You and I have been in the movies a couple times, not together. We should go sometimes. Uh, we would love to. We've been to the movies a couple times, an experience that you know you you took for granted over and over and over. And then not now that we're back to our old routines. Uh, it feels like it's for the first time because we never we never even thought about the Possibility of us not being able to do a lot of things. No, you're You're absolutely right. I I just hate Listen..

"Mitch. All right, a committee commissioned by the University of Michigan. President. Has recommended that the school remove fielding Hee Joo's name from its ice hockey arena. Citing particular racial incident involving the former football coach and athletic director. Course he worked at Michigan from 19 No 1 to 1941. Not recently. Fielding Yost was a legend in terms of his accomplishments a zone Michigan coach, but now they want to take his name off the building and the report. Recommended it here to talk about that with us is Aaron McCann McMahon. Sorry, who covers you've been football for M live com Hi, Erin. Good evening, Miss. So what can you tell us about what Fielding Yost did wrong and Why it rises to the level of stripping his name off a building and its which I assume has been there for some time. Yeah. Yeah, That's a good question. You know, the building has been there since the 19 twenties. You know, In fact, his his name was his original. The Fieldhouse in the University of Michigan elected Navy after 1923. So it's been there a long time. His name's been pretty much ever since. Uh, this kind of came up abruptly became infected past my desk this morning. Apparently a committee has been tasked with was tasked to look at this about a year ago, so they spent the better part of the 12 last 12 months. Going through researching, looking back at archives, things that were written about him on this eight person committee made up before women and four men. All U of M alums, all with PhDs have decided unanimously that the name should come off now. That doesn't necessarily mean it's going to, um they kind of put this out for public comments. The public has until June, 7th to kind of come away and give their opinions and it sounds like this is all going to university president. Now Mark's little does not have unilateral authority to take name off that has to come down on the border regions have to decide on that. So this isn't a done deal yet. However, it seems like there's no motive to do this. Now. This committee that Michigan is it's kind of commissioned. It's fairly experience started January 2017. Since then they have script names off of two buildings on campus. And if this would happen would be the third. So the last four years I've got a boy, so this is a you know, it's a relatively rare thing to happen. But it certainly seems like this momentum do that. As for if it what Why should happen, whether it should happen? You know that's not up for me decide. Obviously, that's something. I think the university and the community at large. Have T O have toe have to grapple with. They know that this committee they did go back and looked at, you know certain instances involving field in eight, fielding HBO's when he was attacked, coach In Athletic Rector university missing and they kept now in the report, which is about eight pages long and there's another 36 page in political piece to it. They kept going back to this one incident involving a black football player, Cheever said. Michigan vigil on from the city of Detroit. He was the first black football player to play and the Michigan football program under feeling it's used fielding a chosen and up to that point, It was the only one But they get plenty in symbolic him in which feeling. Each host benched him for a game at the request of Michigan's opponent, one week Georgia Tech University who said they wouldn't play Michigan if he was on the field. And he Woz, roommate with Gerald Ford. And so this is how a lot of people know about this story because Joan four years later, obviously recounted it and regretted it. Uh, it was not at the time. Something that I'm sure other coaches didn't do as wrong as it is as wrong as it was then and is wrong is it feels now as it should be. In both cases, it was wrong, then it's wrong now. But I'm pretty sure that he wasn't the only coach who did that. And clearly coaches in Georgia Tech weren't even letting black players on their teams so that That took place in 1934. 1934 not at the beginning of his time closer to his the end of his tenure. Is that it, Erin? I mean, is that really the reason that they want to strip his name off for something that happened? You know about 80 years ago. That was the main crux of it. Now there are other instances in which they committee itself felt like, um, you know, feeling Yosh didn't do enough to promote, you know, racial integration and the like, eh? So that was the main But that was in fact that the meeting which I thought was fasting to come to kind of read about, But, um, there was a long thing folks in online retail for themselves. I mean, a pointed to, um you know, they felt like a time they feel like you know a revealing quote from the passage. But they said they felt like quote, Yost quote. His record of upholding the gentleman's agreement helped draw Econoline football at Michigan. So e. It's up for interpretation. It's interesting points. Um yeah, there wasn't a whole lot of the body beside that one player that was going on there was an incident in 1932. John Bacon, who wrote this for the entire Chronicle incident. 1932. We're fielding Yost. They had their team in Chicago, and they checked into the hotel Chicago by the way, not the deep South. And the hotel said that they would not allow them to admit the black players. Same guy Ward on and and they wouldn't be able to stay there unless they took the black player who took ward out. And apparently, and this is from Ward, telling the story himself said that fielding Yost screamed. We've been staying in this hotel since 1900 will pull every Michigan team and I'll get other big 10 teams not to stay here. If you do this, and he apparently made him change their mind, and Ward became the only the second African American never stay at the hotel. The first being the singer Marian Anderson, who was arguably a lot more famous and he was now that's an incident. An incident in his life. Why? Why doesn't that count when they're considering his record? Exactly. It's a good point. You know, he stood up for the players. He should've on it, and I didn't see it anywhere mentioned in the report. So it's something where I think that's why I think the public at large. You know, obviously we need to tell him in and you go go guessed it, But yeah, there is. This is, um I'm on both sides, and I think that's where they think universities. You have to wrestle with this decision. It's an interesting one that I've seen feedback on both sides and No. The next couple of weeks. Like I said that the community has until June 7th to submit their comments on then I would presume shortly after that the border regions will take it up. I they are scheduled to meet June 17th. I suspect it probably won't take up taken up be taking off that quickly. But they are skeptical meeting July and September, so right now, I mean, everybody knows who the border regions. Is, you know, there's not that many of them, And I mean, is anybody going to vote? If he's considered a racist? Is anybody going to put their their name on the record and say No, we think that we should keep him there. I mean, it almost seems like a faith accompli once once you sort of get accused of this, that the only end result of that can happen is that they've got to strip the name of because no one is gonna stand up for him because they're going to be accused of standing up for racist. Uh huh. Have, you know? And it's important to point out all of us either. You know, listening to this or where the casing that he would not live at that point it totally different generations. Just instead of what is this story came up Mitch on this port. I mean, I can understand what you're saying about what? Anybody put their name to it, but It was okay until you know this story's been known for a long nobody knows anything into it. And so I don't know, because there wasn't a movement like there is now to strip people's names of the building. I'm saying, I don't know if it will be a definite that they'll take it down on that. You said that you know, is there and if there's been there and The incident was known and there was no Is there a big campus backlash to this in the last few years or last year? Whatever from the students. No, not at all, and that that's why it was kind of kind of surprising that kind of came up this morning. In fact, John U. Bacon you referenced earlier. He said he had not even been contacted about his work because some of his work was actually cited in this report by the committee. So he's in knows this commission was tasked to look into this. No one really had become a public standpoint. So this is kind of just kind of You know what a surprise All right. We'll take some phone calls on this. Thank you for coming out with their own. Appreciate it. I'm not Daniel criminal. Could I agree that this is the hockey arena They're talking about. Well, that's what I mean. That's what's left of Ivan. 7 44 minutes. Do you think Fielding Yost name should be stripped off of this building? 877 44 months..

N. passed away yesterday at the age of a hundred and twelve wow there is a photo of him two years ago so it was a hundred and ten honestly he looks like he's about sixty eight yeah he's got he's got all his hair it's it's not even all white it's you know sort of silver this is two years ago so I don't know if it's is pictured here in two thousand eight so immediately I was looking at that and then I went through his life and in in his case he was born in nineteen oh eight nineteen oh eight so what when was Kitty Hawk wasn't right around then not the write brothers wasn't like that nineteen nineties no none of that would be all for one they were flying before that I was in the is what I don't know six or three year whatever Antena three was it three so so an airplane has been infected five years earlier World War one had not even started yet we still could get a P. that's on the flight but it like I love little thinking about well what was it when you look at nothing he remembers when he was born but what was the world like when he was born in nineteen oh eight is amazing yeah and yet when I read through his life it wasn't he didn't like living in Asha ram or even berry user something that he was it was it was a fairly normal is is British and it so he he was one of seven children in the English city of whole he left school at sixteen became a marine engineering apprenticeship it was over there he moved to Taiwan I spent a couple years learning Mandarin in teaching a missionary school in the thirties he married a fellow teacher and then they came back to England which coincided with the outbreak of World War two two years ago I had to live through two world wars and and they were sent to Canada and then they moved to Connecticut here in the U. S. he worked in a factory making planes to support the British war effort they stayed here until nineteen forty five warranted they went back to England he went on to teach at a university his wife died in nineteen ninety five and he has ten grandchildren twenty five great grandchildren but there is nothing about like yes and all I ate was looking up this story don't always have Mr rodrico liquor everyday yeah expresses motor yeah there's a the key is having a cigarette they're having lots of talk glass of whiskey milk every day the clear does have a CNE died peacefully in his sleep which you love to hear them you know why not and and and clear he must've had some had a hair because of you should see all there is got any error in it when he's a hundred and ten I mean this is some point ball this just gives up okay we're not getting this guy with the talkers Oregon you can't tell exhibiting down most of the pictures but he was hailed every city viewed everyone else's brother or sister believes in loving and accepting and caring for one another had many many friendships read and talk politics theology ecology and more right up until his death so he was talking you know right right he stayed in his own home Michael died in his own home declined a birthday card from the queen because he said he didn't want the taxpayers to have to pay for that is admirable yeah and they asked him his secret well it is the here are a couple of quotes to the BBC one I think laughter is extremely important I can't deny that to most of the trouble in the world is caused by people taking themselves too seriously not right now and three the secret to his longevity was to avoid dying which exceeded its do not rent a bus what you see avoiding died was because of the will because a lot of little you could do the job yeah you too don't you want to like sort of study it may because I just finished the human touch where blood was so important terms how fights all this what did you want to study the guy's blood or brain it's a look what is it I went to a hundred and twelve lived on his own was lucid he did he actually had cancer at the end but by that aids cancer move so strongly that you know they probably didn't determine if it was worth it but but I want to hear like something about the diet or all eight was grass for the last thirty years of my life you know or park of industry there is a there is a great Mel Brooks routine that he does with Carl Reiner the two thousand year old that's great where he interviews him and he says you know what what's your what's the key to your longevity you know and and he talks like an old Yiddish you know Jewish guys as veiled to live our Reiner says all all yes of course the will to live will this is not dovetail to live villians to live Dr William to live CDS it can't be alive all these years and so then they say to him what what did you eat you know what did you eat that allow you to stay alive he sold my diet is very very very very very very very very restricted very restricted they say well you can you eat you know me no no you can't eat meat meat stable for you can you eat chicken no no chicken give yet I had to concede I a dying to give me a gaudy Eisele spring outing ahead what what about this what about that you know about vegetable vegetables give you gas at my age I'm a blues and I'm going to die you know so it's just what's left to eat he says cool mountain spring water cool mountain spring water ten degrees below room temperature ECOWAS's that's it that's it that's it just a little water that's just a little that and a stuffed cabbage cabins that's terrible but I'm not going to just live a little water I can't help myself and and that's what I always envisioned you know like if you grill these guys down you know well yes I only ate this and then do that either but but yes I also had one pint of ice cream every night of my European gene pool so anyhow he's passed in his sleep at that that's the the fitting way to go why why suffer in any way at a hundred and twelve years old and now someone else gets the title because he took it like there was a Japanese guy want to not be his name was it was a hundred and twelve but like a few days beyond but he died in February so then this guy Bob Weighton became the oldest man now someone else is out there I don't know you know there's a list I think once you get past like a hundred and sixty bushel is what you're going to you know have a red yeah yeah that guy got to step up this is the like the eastern cultures live longer the channel that's why I thought like a brick and you know you kidding me yeah Rep food in the house the tale of the tail has come up with yeah but the yeah potatoes bad teeth all right I got a feeling it's going to be nothing that could connect these and it's just going to be you never go get a connection how you live alone do you know what the the oldest verified person how old the old is verified person lives I will say like one twenty three hundred eighteen hundred and twenty two twenty two yeah Jeanne cal meant France live from eighteen seventy five to nineteen ninety seven the L. ord Texan who you know you you laugh about that stuff about slander whatever but you know I remember I talked to Joe live my great grandma she was born in eighteen eighty two she would not fly and she didn't believe it because I was thinking about she was thirty to somebody down instead of flying you know what she was the one that will it was Michael it was a foreign thing and Simona virus yeah he would not give it to you they're going to come down as metal flying all right well like I said this guy was one you know five year right after they invented the air right of his first words were probably I'm not I'm not on this one get a ship while many out there's a piece in the back with the candies are lower than a year coming up right after this WJR traffic first sponsored by marathon no matter where your

The the one that seems glaringly obvious to me. No, one has said yet, eight seven seven forty four Mitch what do you think is the top argument that parents get into with their kids when the kids are between two and twelve now that that's a big emphasis to in twelve you'll you'll you'll you'll know it.

Yeah. Who gets the front seat of the car where they sit in the car work now. Well. Yeah. I think that's more of a kids arguing with one another. And then you get into the argument with the kids because they're fighting with one another. So that's number five siblings fighting with one another, and that can the draws the parents in to the argument because, you know, stop fighting with your brother SAFA because let's face it. What are you hear from two to twelve year olds all the time? He hit me took my toy he won't let share and then. And then you start getting into an argument that we give them the toy. And now, you're in an argument about what about the, of course, the grades grades got to be tough and is not tough five bitch. I got one for you ready. Yeah. How about argue about connect TV in the house. The internet is bad yelling at the folks anything like that. No technology. No. They don't argue with grades a homework net. Yeah. You know what? Anna this allows you. Yeah. You don't ever bring me a British poll? God do not live in the same. British bowl. I know is going to the dentist got to be one of the top fabric. Why would that be an argument? They don't go number one was children not eating everything on their plate. Number two. Was bet making the bedrooms untidy bedroom. Even untidy number three kids saying they're hungry, but not wanting to eat anything healthy. So it's like, well, it's a food oriented name only want French fry more eating kids complaining that their full after barely touching their food more eating terrible.

"The stage, right? I totally agree. It's like what's the matter with just getting up and say, you know, it was a lot of fun to play a superhero, thanks for giving me the opportunity. But no, you gotta get up to say, you know, what if daredevil were here today, and we're here. Daredevil silver surfer would've observed today's are difficulty in our racial relations zap you, you know, silver is a colored it everybody appreciated. Another thing.

And they didn't even use that opportunity for they said thank you trying to get back, then eight seven seven forty four Mitch Kelly. You're on the Mitch Albom show. Hi there. I definitely agree with you. I agree with your last caller as well. I haven't watched the award shows in several years because basically, I'm, you know, I'm a middle aged conservative woman. I've never been told that I cannot do something because I am a woman. I have never been told that I should be afraid of people who are different than me. I spend my time. I choose to spend my time serving others not because out of my abundance because that's what everyone should do. And just tired of being told by people who who act for a living. That's great. And that's fantastic. That they do that. But they don't live in the real world. And until they do I don't want to hear him, preach. Well, you're right point out acting. I mean, it is acting and I call me sort of suspicious, I guess in my nature. I'm the job is supposed to be a little skeptical as a journalist, but when I see people who are really really good at acting. Making speeches like this. Fear of being on this stage tonight because because I wanted to be here to look out into this. I see this and witnessed this moment of change. Okay. Does that sound like someone asked myself?.
