We will work on together, which is how to deal with this waste and how to stop producing so much waste and how to recycle things in these. All these issues have got to be dealt with globally. They can't be dealt with nationally because that's where the problem is.

The artists are hoping their mount recycling more will galvanize the world leaders to tackle the problem. The

Here's the question back to the nineties. 'cause you're a few years older than me. I'm wondering if you can answer this question. Because i don't know if the contract situation was like after the nineteen ninety eight nba season and could it have been possible for the knicks. To make a play for phil jackson jordan. Scottie pippen and dennis rodman. Because if i'm the knicks basically give up everything at that time except patrick ewing should have given anything you have to including you if you have to. You have to have the guts to do whatever it takes the time. Get jordan and phil jackson and then see what else you could attract was before the second three peat. Try to grab them then. So he comes back to the new york knicks and there was some talk about that at the time but it never came to fruition. There's always a way you just clear the contracts off your books next head desirable players at the time and you go all in if you think you could get them. The problem with the knicks was a free agent year where they took chris. Childs alan houston. Who's good and Larry johnson who is also good but on the market were tim. Hardaway reggie miller and charles barkley. Who were better in. The knicks always got the consolation prize. All right well. we laughed. We cried we did. Neither such thing laughed a little bit.

Reflections On Atlanta Braves Legend Henry "Hank" Aaron
"I could talk about the dignity in the class of hank. Aaron the man the you've been being for an hour easily but i'm a numbers guy and so let me tell you what i did. After hank aaron died i navigated over to his page on baseball reference. And i don't know. I just be held the majesty of this man's career and it literally gave me goosebumps. The more i looked the more. I realized he was beyond great. He was at some other level. He wound up with nearly thirty eight hundred hits. And that's a lot of freaking hits. It's a thousand more history chipper jones. It's two thousand more hits than mark. Maguire it's more hits than johnny bench and hank greenberg got combined and they're both in the hall of fame so i think about all those hints and i think about those seven hundred fifty five homeless because that's two hundred more homes than mickey mantle. Two hundred it's more homers than edgar martinez and duke snider hit combined. And they're both in the hall. But the more i dug i found other cool stuff to hank. Aaron had double digit home run seasons at age twenty and age. Forty here the only three players who did that. Willie mays ted williams hank aaron. That's a pretty good. Start on a mount rushmore. Would you say and all those home runs. He hit for all those years. This never struck out one hundred times. Then there's total basis crushes. Everyone who ever played in total bases six thousand eight hundred and fifty. Six total bases isn't just a record. It's seven hundred. Twenty two more than stan. Musial was the next closest player in history. If stan musial had hit another one hundred and eighty home runs. He still wouldn't catch i karen and total basis. That's a lot of total basis. That's incredible hitter hank. Aaron was for two decades. So is it possible to be one of the greatest players who ever lived and still the underrated. After looking over hank aaron's numbers. I think it is my name. Is david o'brien cover the braves for the athletic. And there's only two guys that i've ever felt this aura around them and that was mohammed ali and hank. Aaron and hank aaron. How's interviewed him. The first time at spring training. I remember approaching him and it was just You know i've done this for thirty years. And it was feeling. I've had unlike any other athlete that i've ever approached but then he immediately just he smiled and was so warm that that fear or intimidation just as melted away. And you could not believe that you were talking to this. Superstar is genuine icon living in atlanta for twenty years You can't overstate the importance of hank. Air to this city and this region the south. I grew up in the south and hank aaron being a black man being the greatest one of one of the two or three greatest players of all time and to do what he did in the south and then living in atlanta and seeing hank aaron you know mementos anchor and tributes and see his name on buildings and streets and that kind of thing. I would argue that. There is no athlete. That is more important to a city than hanker and wants to atlanta. He was such a huge part of how the culture of the south has changed. I mean this is a city where you feel fide of being so much black acceptance here. Thanks a huge huge part of that. He helped pave the way for all these other black athletes and entertainers wanna come here to be here. Brian jordan know it was an all star with atlanta. Bryant said that The reason that he chose atlanta was hank. Aaron and was a boy idle here. He said a black kid growing up playing baseball hank. Aaron was the guy but it was an opportunity for me to meet my hair. The hope the opportunity is given so many kids today. Amazing dominique wilkins. Said hank was a big reason. That he came here was one of the first people. It's probably one of the most instrumental guys into getting me here in atlanta. But one for god like hank. I wouldn't been here. Was hanker went to ted turner and said hey you need to get this kid by any means necessary. He said people should give the roses while they're alive and that he's glad to see him getting them now but he said hank should have been put on a pedestal decades ago and he was right What are the things that i remember him saying is that you gotta set example for people to come at you. And how do you do that. You do the right way you doing about being Have miltie you do it by just doing the right thing and the right thing a lot of times. It's hard and a lot of guys. Young guys don't know how to do the right thing. As far as how they present themselves to people and how they get back to people so to give back experts that i've learned over the years has become from erin trampling. We don't see that much of that anymore today. And he lived in the same house that he bought when he came here in. Nineteen sixty six from the

Remembering Eddie Van Halen with Steve Gorman
"Joining me now is Steve. Gorman who was the drummer in the Black Crowes who now plays with trigger hippy and before we talk about some of the Black Crowes stuff in your book I. I saw tweets even it was talking about Eddie Van Halen, which is Kinda. Why you here you say there will be many many words written and spoken about Eddie. Van. Halen, over the next few days, weeks, months and years those millions of words will never come close to expressing what he meant a rock music what he meant to guitarist and what he meant to the guitar itself that's pretty powerful statement Mr Gorman what did Eddie and remind me to rock music I. Think it's it's pretty simple. You can say that he and Jimi Hendrix of the two guys. That truly, and and only the two guys that moved the needle for the guitar itself I mean Hendrix. came out of a blue based. seem. And took the playing and the tone he could get to a new place but even hail and. Really almost came in from another country. Another planet I should say another he's like an alien life form I mean, he was a virtuosic player obviously but he He reinvented what what you could do is to guitar and the fact of the matter is this. Like Hendrix. But even to a greater degree, anybody tries to play like Eddie. Van Halen. Just sounds like a mind a mimic they. It's like rich little doing Johnny Carson okay. Yeah. That kind of sounds like him but. There's nothing nobody's ever been able to do any van. Halen. Did it make it feel a certain way? That each just the and he was that way at twenty two I mean, this is this is not a guy like it's not like David Blaine magic tricks where he gets bigger and better every year he started with card tricks that other people did I even Halen hit the ground running with Van Halen one playing an instrument that have been around for centuries unlike anybody else had ever done I mean he was on the Mount. Rushmore. Of Great Depar- players. At twenty two years old and then, and then he stuck around for another forty years still playing unlike anybody before sin. So I just think that in terms of. You know. Sheer unique. Mindset ambition combined with just. Great talent obviously. But but also phenomenal work ethic I mean he's just a complete unicorn in every sense of the word. How would you describe his guitar sound and I say that I know what I think of it but I wasn't I just messed van Halen like I came around right as you guys were blowing up honestly so that for me the van Halen was slightly classic rock slightly old rock to me as A. Kid. So as someone 'cause, you're just years older than I am but how would you describe his guitar sound someone who was in in it and living it in love and Van Halen? Well I can tell you that that was thirteen years old the first time I heard Van Halen and I remember it. I remember where I was I remember who I was with. It was going home from school in Hopkinsville Kentucky. You really got me there kinks the you know the their cover, the kinks song came on the radio. And and it was playing already and I said, Hey, mom turn that up. It was me and my mom and my friend Brooke. Lofton. The three of us in a car and she turned it up and I my first thought was. That must be like a live version of the king song and I was thinking like we don't they don't rock or do they. But when it hit that Solo and then by the time, the song ended I realized well, that does that's not ray Davey seeing this is clearly a cover version but what on earth is this and it was like making my? Hair on the back of my neck stand up. This is a time when I thought punk rock was the coolest thing in the world. and. The truth is Van Halen was more punk than the punks because they were truly breaking down a bunch of barriers if you will or they were going in their own. You know there hasn't been a band like Van Halen since led Zeppelin in terms of. Rock band hits the ground running at full steam and it obliterates everything in their path in a certain sense and. Jimmy van Halen sound it sounded like California was in my head. You know soon as I realized soon as I heard about them, they're from La, and as soon as I saw David Lee Roth and then as soon as I heard more than you know the next thing I heard was eruption Guitar Solo and you know hearing just two pieces of their first album and seeing what they look like it just. It felt brand new and it already felt like they're going to be around forever. You just knew from the jump and this is me as a thirteen year old kid who is obsessed with music. This band is one of the Alzheimer's like there's nothing like this and they all have the chops and the other thing too as long as I'm just rambling incessantly any van Halen was a great rhythm player. It wasn't just about the Solos he led the band rhythmically and he's also it needs to be noted not that it's not obvious. He's a hell of a songwriter I mean he really was. As I said before he's a true Unicorn I mean, just just nothing like it. What does this sound like do you? It sounds frequent and right in right in the zone near your your key. That's one thing because listen I played a little bit I don't play even as good as my friends who are real life musicians, but it's perfect frequency and frequency is in the tone or the, but as because it's a lot. I mean Brad Paisley plays unnoticed Brad. Paisley. Because I hear the chicken Pickin I hear a very distinct sound and again I didn't catch van Halen as it was happening in my childhood. But when I hear Van Halen Song even if I, it's I, don't know who it is. Just hear the guitar part I hear the Eddie van Halen because I how fast he shreds but the pattern that he does it, you can just tell. By By his fingers and it just kind of again it's hard to explain when you ask about music but that's what I think about and I try to. Always try to. Prepare analogies and most of the people who listen to this podcast here between twenty to forty, and if you were to make an analogy to another band, it's GonNa be tough because Van Halen was massive. But who later on had the kind of? Impact or. Reflected the mass listening that Van Halen had well. What band what yeah. What band can we look at now or in the last ten years and see? Okay. Well, that's how big Van Halen was to the people that were the kids in the eighties.

"Deeply lined mountains reminded me at every turn of the faces of elders watching as if from another dimension. I imagine them gazing down patiently pityingly at the human realm with all its swift phases, all of its blindness, all of its quarrels. Bias alert. My sense of how humanity was small and leading in comparison to the black. Hills. Rock formation was powerfully amplified by my experience of Mount Rushmore. With so much to be revered in the landscape itself. How was it? Someone's impulse to say you who look at us? We Americans are just as important as all this ageless nature stuff. I had not expected to feel that way. I had expected to feel aw at the scale of the sculptural enterprise. But the four great men carved into the mighty rock felt somehow puny. Inside the Mount Rushmore Museum I learned that the artist responsible for Mount Rushmore was guts in Borg limb a plaque described him as involved in local politics. A museum guide explained that while not an official member of the Ku Klux Klan bore glum was associated with its members and involved in its politics. It is difficult for me to dissociate my personal feeling that Mount Rushmore is an unnatural human manifestation in an otherwise autonomous and coherent national landscape. From my personal opinion that racism is an unnatural and immoral human disruption of the natural order this is just one way. Racism distorts our view of ourselves and one another.

Grant just wanted a reason to declare war against the indigenous people. And he founded devious way to force them off of their ancestral home. In the winters, the Sioux camped in yellowstone and powder river valley in Wyoming. These locations had better hunting grounds but in December eighteen seventy five president grant ordered the tribes to return the black hills reservation immediately. He knew that this was impossible during the harsh winter. And it could lead to starvation once the native people refused the order grant and his troops felt they had grounds to attack they plan their ambush for the next summer but the native Americans had secret Intel. In late spring the Sioux had their annual Sundance. The ritual included an offering of prayers to the great spirit meant to elevate the tribe higher spiritual plane. During the ceremony Lakota tribal leader sitting bull experienced a divine vision. Later sitting bull described what he'd seen soldiers writing upside down into camp, falling off their horses and dying before they could attack.

The next month President Grant presented a new treaty again at called for the native Americans to give up the black hills grant didn't allow any tribesmen who had fought in the battle of the little bighorn to sign. and. If any approved signatories refused they no longer receive food and provisions from the government which many tribes relied upon.

Even, so only one tenth tribes signed the treaty which Congress swiftly approved. Bats far fewer than the three fourths legally required for the measure to pass over the next twelve years, the government forced to sue to evacuate the black hills.

He said these directions represented a deeper understanding of love kindness and wisdom. The same qualities you might find in a grandfather rushmore is guy didn't know any of this.

'Patriotic Education': Trump Says He Will Start New Commission
"All things considered. I'm Elsa Chang and I'm Sasha Pfeiffer. President Trump waded into the classroom today. He says he thinks American students need to be taught what he calls patriotic education, and he accused his political opponents of trying to brainwash Children about racism. Must clear away the twisted Web of lies in our schools, classrooms and teach your Children the magnificent truth. About our country. We want our sons and daughters to know that they are the citizens of the most exceptional nation. In the history of the world. It's the latest development in the cultural divisions. Trump is trying to promote as part of his reelection campaign. White House correspondent Tamara Keith joins me now to talk about this item. Hello. And the president says he's going to create a new commission about this. Can you working? Tell us about that commission? Yes. So he went to the National Archives to announce that he is creating a commission to promote history education that focuses on quote the legacy of 17 76. Of course, that is the year when American colonies declared their independence from Great Britain, and this is a reaction in part against the 16 19 project. President Trump made it explicit. He said that That was the project led by the New York Times that focuses on a view of American history stemming from the year when the first enslaved Africans were brought to these shores. But it's also a reaction to the protest that we've seen this year against racial injustice. One thing about the commission to be clear about, though the federal government does not have jurisdiction over school curriculum, so it is up to schools and local and state governments to decide what to teach. And they do and they teach very different things depending on where you are. This isn't the first time the president has talked about these themes. Would you put in context? Put this in context for us politically? Yes. Oh, he's wrapping a few things together here. People on the right have long complained about the liberal bent on college campuses. That is not new. But there has been a growing effort by educators at all levels, even in elementary schools to teach Children about systemic racism. Slavery as a founding sin of the nation. The genocide of Native Americans as part of westward expansion, and President Trump objects to that strongly, saying schools are teaching Children to hate America. Our Children are instructed from propaganda tracks. Like those of Howard's in Try to make students ashamed of their own history. The left has warped, distorted and to file The American story. With deceptions, fall suits and lives. This also comes in the midst of the racial justice protests where some protesters tour down or vandalize statues of Confederate generals and founding fathers who owned slaves, and Trump has come to the defense of these statues, making them a cause of sorts as part of his re election. There is often a reason or an impetus for why Trump will say things that he knows will be provocative. Is there Do we know what he's talking about this now? Well, he's been talking about it for a little while. It's it's clear. This is part of his re election. This is a variation on themes that he talked about it during speeches and at Mount Rushmore on July 3rd the White House on July 4th. It's a theme he has been coming back to to fire up his base, sort of a variation on make America great again, harkening back to a different time. A different America. He is presenting himself as a great defender of American values and and even Western civilisation, as if to say that people who don't agree with his view of history or of what makes America great. That they are just wrong, but fundamentally trying to destroy the country. It is a very different reelection message than those used by past presidents. It's not about uplift or unifying. It's a long way. From morning in America and as if it wasn't clear already that this is part of his reelection campaign. As part of his remarks, President Trump took a very unsettle shot at Joe Biden holding up a statue of a a notable Delaware founding father and saying that when his statue was taken down by the city of Wilmington, Biden didn't speak out. That's white House correspondent. Tamara Keith. Thank you to him. You're welcome. For
South Dakota emerges as new U.S. coronavirus hot spot
"Just before the fourth of July this summer the Republican governor of South Dakota Christie gnome one on Fox News to announce of excitedly that president trump's big July fourth campaign event at Mount. Rushmore would not require attendees to wear masks Hooray and definitely there would be no social distancing she said yeah and sure enough a big mostly mask lists crowd packed in for president trump's rally. Then South Dakota refused to have mask requirement or any kind of changing plans actually for the annual sturgis motorcycle rally last month, which attracted upwards of four hundred, thousand people. The sturgis motorcycle rally has now been linked to hundreds of new coronavirus cases, and at least one death cases in south. Dakota doubled in the two weeks after that event, there's actually a study out today that projects that the Sturgis rally alone may have led to an almost staunching number of new covid infections. South Dakota Governor Christie gnome has defended the sort of covid denial list approach of the state under her leadership saying that South Dakota will not listen to quote in elite class of so-called experts. Under her leadership, the state also ahead this past weekend with its state. Fair. No Corona virus walls for that gathering either. Now, as a few days ago, South Dakota has the highest number of corona virus cases per capita in the whole country. South Dakota's leaders refused to take measures to stop to stop the spread of it. They rejected the warnings of those pointy headed so-called experts. And now, here we are.

This is we were discussing whether this quarter. is in the hall of fame of for a publicly traded stock quarters or whether it's just goes straight to mount rushmore as one of the very elite. perhaps only four of all time I'd I'd like to know what others earned the competition for this, and it probably comes as little surprise that obviously in the April may June or or sorry May June July. Quarter this company grew tremendously, but to have grown from doing a reasonable amount of forty, five million in revenue a year ago for the quarter to six, hundred, sixty, three, you know that's one of the reasons six, hundred, sixty, three, million for the core.

DNC Announces Convention Speakers, Speculation On Biden's VP Pick Intensifies
"Of scheduled speakers at next week's Democratic National Convention is out, and it's being parsed for clues as to who's still in the running to be Joe Biden's running mate. He's expected to make that announcement any day now. Meanwhile, President Trump is floating the idea of accepting the Republican nomination later this month on Sacred ground. The Gettysburg Battlefield. NPR national political correspondent Mara Liasson is watching it all. And Mara. You know, some names in the running to be Biden's running mate are scheduled to speak, but not in the VP slot, you know, and I'm just wondering if that's a fool's errand to try to make that meaningful, You know? What do you think about that? And who do you think at this point is thumb Where are may be the most likely candidates. I think the most likely candidates are still that same handful of women, you know, Joe Biden said. He's going to take a woman whether it's Kamala Harris, Susan Rice, Gretchen Whitmer, Karen Bass. Those are the people who have been on the list for quite some time. And and, of course, Gretchen Whitmer is the only white female on that short list. But I think the list has remained the same. Sounds like he's about to make his decision because the vetting committee has pretty much disbanded on DH. It could be as early as today that we find out So what do you think for everybody who's sitting home, you know, got all the names and the lists on whiteboards and, you know, trying to, you know, look at those tea leaves. And should we be looking at the List of speakers. Oh, I think that that that is actually fool's errand, but it's fun and it's going to be over very soon. It could be over today, so go ahead. But I still think you know that of all my conversations with Democrats all signs Seemed to point to Kamala Harris. But with the caveat that Joe Biden hasn't decided, and he often takes his time deciding well, 100 prominent black men signed a letter. Hoping they could make him decide that it would be a black woman because they said to him, you will lose the election. If you don't choose a black woman as a running mate, and this was entertainers, pastors, business leaders, athletes. I'm wondering more. If you think that Biden really needed that public pressure, it would seem in this moment in time. That's the choice. He'd want. Make one of these in class. That's what I think. I think that letter was really aimed. And Gretchen Whitmer. She's the only white person on that list. Everyone else is a person of color or black woman. So I don't think he needed that kind of public pressure. But it does show you that of all the people on the list. There is a backlash brewing to at least one of them in that's Gretchen Whitmer. You haven't seen the same kind of opposition public opposition to Kamala Harris, for instance. Oh, by the way, you're saying Elizabeth Warren is not in the running and I don't think so. Yeah, No, I don't think so, although she's a thought leader in the party, and she certainly has influenced a tremendous amount of his agenda. Of the Democratic National Convention will be all online this year. Wouldn't does that mean for the post convention bounce that the candidates look for Hillary Clinton got well, first of all, who knows Because nobody's ever run a presidential campaign in a pandemic. But most people I talked to assume that the post convention bounce will be very small thiss year for both candidates because they're not having the kind of big Excitement filled crowded conventions like we have in the past that being said the Democrats have had a lot longer time to plan for a virtual convention than the Republicans because they've been scaling. There's back for months. And the big question is, are they about to produce the best four night television show ever seen in history? Or will it kind of be ho hum? Well, and they will be competing in that arena with a president who is obviously trying to make the best television show. What do you make of that tweet that he may accept the Republican Nomination for president from the Gettysburg Battlefield or the White House. Both locations likely to violate ethics rules or just some people's moral sense of what's right to politicize. But you know, this is a president that gave an interview to Fox News inside the Lincoln Memorial, gave an interview at Normandy. What do you think happens here? Will certainly Trump isn't worried about offending people sense of what's right or wrong or any kind of norm. Now there are legal questions. Ethical questions about what kind of federal property you can make a convention nominating speech, your acceptance speech on and I'm sure the White House lawyers will be figuring that out. Is there some part of Gettysburg that he could be on? Without violating ethics rules. It's certainly a lot easier for the president to set this up at the White House, but he's clearly looking for the kind of dramatic backdrop not unlike Mount Rushmore that would give his campaign a boost. Quick thought from you, Mara on the fact that it's been primary season. It's primary day today for six states. The focuses on Minnesota, where the Denver Democrat, the representative Ilhan Omar, Is facing a tough challenge. Other progressive candidates have done very well this primary season. What will you be looking for here, right. She's the only member of the squad left with the primary. The four young progressive women of color and she has a really stiff challenge from an attorney named Anton Melton, Mo. He's getting a lot of money. There's been a certain amount of unhappiness with her. They've been attacks on her first for allegedly making anti Semitic statements. We know that the other members of the squad have not had primary challenges. Rashida to leave beat hers back very handily. So that's what we're watching today for the Democrats. Well, how does he do? Right and very briefly. The unemployed have now gone over a week. Without that additional money from the federal government. The president signed those actions and directives to address this. White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow says the money will go out in two weeks. But he doesn't have The power of the purse. Congress does and they're gone. They're out of session. I think everyone's taking a big political risk here for the president to sign these executive orders and then have people not get a bigger unemployment check or still face eviction. I think that that he will be responsible for that and then members of Congress, including the Democrats, they are allowing people to go without thes unemployment checks, which, by the way, have kept the economy going in large part On Then they have stopped negotiating. Good. Not good. Not good. Yeah. NPR national political correspond. Mara Liasson. Thank you. Thank you.

Trump doubles down on divisive messaging in speech to honor Independence Day
"President Trump had a message on our own Independence Day here in the US more from CBS's Tom Foti, a big part of President Trump's Fourth of July message was an echo of a theme. He previewed the night before at Mount Rushmore. Those that are lying about our history. Those who want us to be ashamed of who we are, are not interested in justice or in healing. Their goal is demolition off, which there was evidence not far away. Not too much later but pull down of a Christopher Columbus statue.

President Trump Brings Big Fireworks Displays Back To Mt. Rushmore
"To South Dakota and Mount Rushmore now that is where president trump will celebrate independence day this evening. He along with seventy five hundred other people will be treated to a three hundred fifty thousand dollar fireworks display. That is courtesy of south. Dakota taxpayers trump takes credit for reviving the big displays after environmental concerns, stop them in two thousand nine, South Dakota public broadcasting's Seth tupper reports on why the fireworks were banned, and how the president brought them back. Big expensive firework shows like this one erupted in color over the carped heads of Rushmore. Every July for about a decade. But the National Park Service put a stop to it after two thousand nine because of pollution and the wildfire risk to the surrounding black hills national forest. In January president, trump said those aren't good reasons to cancel a fireworks display. They say what can burn stone stone. So, nobody knew why they just set environmental reasons, so I called up our people, and within about fifteen minutes we got it approved, and you're going to have your first. Big Fireworks Display at Mount, Rushmore and I'll try get out there if I can. Right I would say that those comments are not informed comments, and that information is out there what the impacts were Cheryl. Schreier was superintendent of Mount, Rushmore National, Memorial from twenty ten until last year. When the big displays started in nineteen, ninety eight dozens of firefighters had to be stationed in the forest nearby to put out fires started by falling embers debris from the exploded fireworks. Shells delivers the forest in two thousand sixteen, a chemical link to fireworks called perchlorate was found in drinking water wells at Mount, Rushmore levels are not regulated in South Dakota or really, but they remain higher than standard set by Massachusetts and California. Schreier, said it all added up to a consensus when she was in charge, fireworks were not going to be a part of Mount Rushmore any further, but shortly after taking office in two thousand eighteen Republican governor Christie Gnome says she asked. President trump to bring the fireworks back. Footage of them aired all over the world, boosting South Dakota's tourism industry and he ever since then has kind of I. Don't know taking the bull by the horns you know been. Passionate about it a park service environmental review concluded in April found. The fireworks will not have a significant impact on the environment. Seventy five hundred people won tickets to the event in an online lottery signs, encouraging social distancing will be posted and masks will be made available, but GNOME says nothing will be required. We did have a plan originally of social distancing. We do not anticipate any social distancing activities during the celebration protesters pushing for the removal of statues say Mount Rushmore honors to slave owners, Washington and Jefferson calls to face. The memorial are circulating on the Internet. And Native American groups plan to protest, they say the mountain carving and the fireworks desecrate land they, lost broken treaties. Whether could add a final wrinkle. Authorities have set of go no go criteria that could cancel the show if fire conditions are too dangerous.

Those are my best months four months. What are they again? September twelve months. Yeah your your pick. September February April January Jan Asari. I did until January march April and September. I think that most people are going to say that January march and April are not in the top four months of Mount Rushmore. I mean I like I know but everyone's GonNa February's not in there. I'd skip the worst among. Yeah you know. If you're going by the sports calendar July and August a pretty light you know if you like tennis golf great but there is this the sports month of the year or is it a difference. I think it's just as there. Yeah well you're living right now. What else is there? I? I'm trying to figure out. What else is there poker? Yeah I would say bad. Yeah I'd say so. Far Knock. Great Yeah I feel like that may is good because you know of like a spring is here. I guess for me like the TV is still is still going on a lot of big Like traditionally end of season stuff. thought that as a really great month may is a great month may in September. It's Sorta like the opposite where you have Memorial Day and Labor Day again. It's not too hot. Not too cold really nice weather sort of like you know. The the fall is nice. Fall is underrated so temperatures. Really the start of the year. Yeah none of my TV year. It started with survivor. Starters temper and it's sort of the Jewish new year like it's September's really like the go back begins. Yes school. The school year starts it's January amid it's September year starts in September September. I people the the holidays I for me I. I actually like January more than most. Because it's the holidays are over but I think that we'll probably have December in their people like like the holiday stuff. He's also your least busy month work wise. It's really ally shows that's good. That's good for me. June July August gets too hot All right let's move on. Let's give me another one Okay what are the Mount Rushmore of? Hbo Shows Okay. I think this is a good one because I think that there are three locks here and I think that the the fourth face of Mount Rushmore is the one that's going to be tricky to nail down. Okay well the wireless broncos. I think we're both GONNA agree are obvious one and I grew. I don't agree with that. You don't think that they're both locks for rush. The Sopranos is a lock. You don't think the wires I do not. Have you ever seen the wire? Of course I've seen the Li- I didn't know what you're going to drop the Evans said okay. So then what's the second show? You think the three shows you think are lock and you think the wire. Oh man the RA. Ra you know read it slash nap. Whatever the nicer outline wires on the bubble for the fourth spot. Oh my God I think. He's on bubbles. It's not on the bulbs. Yeah I I think is the Sopranos. Yep No doubt that's number one I think. Game of thrones is to what is it the biggest hit You know I've seen people make the point on social media which is very true in a different world. The whole universe is just rewatching. Game of thrones ten times now. Nobody is because ended so poorly. Okay so people are doing this. We watching shows but game of thrones. That's a Worley. People have written it already. It'll come back. Give give it a couple years. People will go back and watch a game of thrones and it'll it'll come it's the biggest show ever and it changed a bunch of things about the way the way people think about. Tv How many people had HBO for years and years just to keep Watching game of thrones. You can't not have game of thrones on the Mount Rushmore of HBO shows. Okay and then. What's your third lock? John from Cincinnati now now hung okay so high sex and the city is K. So I thought that would be the bubble because to me. I thought maybe we'd have the ones pranav whichever one was assuming. Where the two locks and game of thrones is the third one and then I thought we'd argue over sex in the city versus curb. I haven't wire versus curb and then the wire to win. I think because curb is amazing and I think like in terms of iconic nece like curve can come and go. It's on for a little while a personal curb. Reveal the full results of the poll. Later did you see that? I did a whole film which to show. You saw the poll went. I think I saw I saw how going when I voted. Yes so curb. Came in last of the four comedies. I think it was thirty. Rock community and arrested development last. I checked the polls ending as well. Can you make the case for me? And these are the. Are you saying that these are the most critically acclaimed? Hbo Shows or are the best. But but what is best me? They like the the best to like. I like that. These are the shows that define HBO IN MY. This is like four most successful because Dan night say for sure. Game of thrones sex in the city and Sopranos. Happy one too. I think if you go to. Hbo Headquarters and they were going to commission a Mount Rushmore of HBO. Okay they have stringer bell. Here's what we've done yet Right would they have McNulty up there in the because to me? What makes the case for the wire because I know people love it but I feel like it's more of a cult head than it was never a commercial huge? Hit even even winning awards. Slee I think do they had zero emmys. I think that one nation for but not for like an acting or best drama best wire best like wire-cutting in the background there. So if you were out so underrated but I don't think that it was ever a tent pole flagship show. I don't think it was either. But at the end of the day it's very commonly referred to as the best. Tv show of all time. It's it's number one or two or three or four in fact you could say. We're doing rushmore. Greatest shows of all time. And let's say we had the sopranos the wire breaking bad and madman or something like that Or at least dramas. Let's let's throw out the comedies for a second Nobody would would quibble with the wire being on there. And that's all networks all shows that were just boiling down and you want to leave your wires. One of the best four shows of all time. You won't put that. Well I think if you do polls it's up there. I'm sure and Chester's charts. It's no lower than third or fourth chesapeake wire guy. I think there's a big wire guy I mean. Is there anything else? That would be inconsideration here. That we're not mentioning. Pope people really like the leftovers but again people really like that but again it wasn't like it was like a critical be plus an audience people. It wasn't like the biggest hit ever on. Hbo and it wasn't a critical. Dr I think you have to be at least one of the two at this level to to be like the curbs or the wires just to make the case for curb than I do feel like that. Curb probably has a bigger impact on sort of the pop culture than Wire does all right. Should we make all this week and look I I? I'm just telling you that it's it was on the bubble. I'm not I'm not fighting necessarily against the the wire I I am leaning more towards the wire but I just think I don't think it's the slam dunk of a HBO defining show. I hear what you're saying but I don't know what the fourth would be if it's not and I think curb was never a huge at either curbs on the air now does pretty small numbers. Would that veep veep is very good but I think if given the choice between veep and curb I think her abused I'm trying to do like if there's any other shows. What about our is is like the poor man's version of of the dramas also not a big hit is is great. If we're doing eight I would consider. I mean Alan. Sepang were all says without is. There's no sopranos that I feel like that in terms of the importance to HBO. I think is is more important than the wires. I don't disagree but I also think it's not as good of a show and nobody. Nobody really talks about ours anymore. ounce and walt us. Yeah well he's he's that's too inside baseball. Yeah like I'm saying that's his. That's just John I'll give it to give it to the wire but I think that the wire I feel like that is in some ways become overrated. Where so underrated. Maybe it's overrated. Wow what are other things? That are so underrated. They're over eight. Put It on the wheel. If you I did have overrated things as the last thing I got off of my list I mean most overrated things right now season. Five of the wire is that great. It's better than any other shows any other season but it's not as good as as season four of the wire orders. Ben Every season two in any other season. Yeah it's better than every other every other shows. Every other season is what I'm saying so the wire season five versus any other shows bidding. How about this? The why it's their. It's their fourth or fifth season. I think it would beat seem to in most people's rankings but I like season two so let's say there's another show sports best season equal the wire Susan five definitely not. That's my that's my position. Maybe the Sopranos and I'm not. I'm not saying it's promise isn't better than the wire is probably a lot tighter than the sopranos. I mean as much less wasted energy and also far fewer episodes and shorter seasons. They've rob yeah. Wh-what's we that was the sopranos is really just Gilmore girls for not excuse me is gossip girl for men. I did not viral. Tweet this week. so what about the the wire versus breaking bad season for season breaking bad's it's interesting because bring bit doesn't have a lot of ood that season suck but they definitely have episodes aren't great Okay and I'm not a big. I think I think the bring bed finale was so cartoony also I don't like it as much as I don't think they totally botched it but I think it was like silly either way you know. Look I'm not being a anti wire in terms of its stinks. I'm just saying that I think maybe the there's flaws for the y your crowning okay. Fine Okay but I'll put it as the fourth face on the HBO. But who who's your person who you probe up there stringer bell. I think you probably go. Stringer Bell Okay. Yeah so. That's Tony Stringer Bell. Sarah Jessica Parker. And who do you do? From game of thrones now ran. Well I feel like there was a better story to be on. Game of thrones the breath. I think that we probably I think it should be John Snow. But maybe WANNA have Generis dinners with the dragons. I think you need to put the Dragon. Just one dragon. Yeah Okay so character that never speaks during the whole series and has shown.

"And we are back once again. Let's crank through a a few more listener. Questions shall we shall we shall. Here's Joe Joe Says Hey split-screen they've never been in before his let me say I love the show I. I only started listening in January when I wanted all the anthem hot takes I could find but now I'm and can't believe it's already November. My question is actually linked to how I only started listening this here. I thought I'd check out. The older episodes wondered if they'd still be relevant. Mostly yes it can be a great trip down memory lane for games. I remember playing or news. I remember unfolding. The funny thing is is though that a lot of the larger themes are totally relevant discussions of games service big companies hoovering up for their talent for their projects back then Amazon and now Google crunch and rather game worker should unionize. So I'm guessing you all. Don't spend a Lotta time listening to those early episodes. When I'm sure you think a lot about patterns in the games industry do you feel things? These are just repeating themselves or companies. Keep making the same mistakes or does it feel like things are improving even if the same issues keep coming up that is such. That's a good question Kirk. Give us an answer Yeah I mean of course. It's true that a lot of these issues are you know. It's not that they keep repeating. Its they're still there or at least as the issues he's talking about crunch in game workers unionizing and work conditions. I mean these are just issues. That things are things that have been a problem this time so but also games deserved service purpose and tech companies taking talent like those are interesting trends that just keep like moving in cycles. It's just funny like Amazon. If you look at Amazon's attempt to get into gaming aiming it was just like that the Amazon thing in the Google thing that does feel history repeating itself Games as a service to me just feels like one long arc like it's just a thing that started Kardashian has continued but yeah I mean this makes me think of a slightly related thing. which is I see and I just read a lot of game reviews in game criticism? And there's such gotcha thing where their conversations that repeat every four or five years mattia. See you nodding. I know that near to Jason. I know you're aware and this is something that if you're the longer you write about video games the more you see it and I remember when I was first getting it. I'm sure I did this to you. Know started writing about two thousand ten right and it's like oh I got I've got it like I've got the take and then you write a thing and you know some others reading it sink thinking Oh you know. Okay that's cool but like so-and-so's said it better for years ago in everyone's just forgotten down the Internet memory hall so that I think does happen and for a long time really annoy me. I'd be like Oh my God. Are you serious. People are arguing about whether the word mechanic is Useful or whether it's story and Video Games can work Baltin Game Chevy one or two or it's right but then I do think in. This is the question of does it get better in this case. It's kind of does the conversation get better and I think that it does and actually it's important that the conversations repeat because there are new people having them and that's kind of the perspective I have now is. Yeah they're saying the same things some of the same things and at times you WANNA be like. Oh my God just read this thing that you clearly didn't read because this already happened and then you haven't even better take but generally speaking. I think that the new people are having the new conversations. And that's just kinda how it has to work and it isn't just a spinning like a treadmill. It is kind of moving forward. And they're the original conversations did happen and so things repeat but they don't totally replicate and that's kind of how I you know at least don't don't feel annoyed. We buy it now so you're talking more about critical conversations. Correct this is I. That was right. I was saying this is a slight tangent. But it's a thing that this email makes me got it in terms of the conditions. I actually like I said I don't see them as repeating things. Most of these things are things that hedging ongoing for the past decade food not well but that's the depressing part of this. Is that like the crunch. Conversation has been happening for at least fifteen years and beings have not really changed changed that much. I mean some companies are certainly trying to get better at it but like if you talked to anyone at naughty dog right now. I'm sure they are killing them. So I mean I know their question of like pace of change and how long it takes for things like that to change. The conversation has changed in some ways though because the response to it has changed or at least my anecdotal observation and like it did not use to be that people talk about cruncher reporters specifically talk about crunch and that the response to it would be people writing in about unions like that didn't used to be a responsible. The people add like much unions. They still don't but at least now they're kind of like there's something that should be done about. This people still defend huge game. Companies unlike side with them in ways that I still find really strange but I do feel like that gravitational pull has changed slightly over the course of these conversations happening many times over and and over again and I actually feel like it is pretty similar to the critical takes conversations happening over and over again like I feel like the way that people talk about diversity in Games has changed a lot in the past ten years years like when I started out it was so basic like just so mind-numbingly basic to just feel like what if a female character was it a game like we couldn't even get there ear and like that alone was like no no. We can't have that. Don't run everything we can't. We can't do that. That's crazy we've got. We've already got metro and beyond good and evil and it's fine so so you you guys. He decided that discourse and then like you just keep rolling snowball up the hill or whatever metaphor you want to use and like. You're you're having the same conversation over and over again but like each time it changes slightly and there are new people getting involved in the conversations as well and there may be having their exact same. Take a gun but it's also I feel like it has advanced. It's just been incredibly slow. It's the pace of change thing. If you look at the conversation that was happening you know last month versus the conversation that was happening two years ago it can feel a little dispiriting. 'cause you're like oh it's the same conversation but if you look at the conversation that was happening last month versus the conversation. That was happening twelve years ago. It's a much more significant difference and it is the same conversation but yeah we've come to a new place so that's kind of it's helpful to have been doing it for a while. I guess because then you have that bigger perspective. Fair points all around Let's move on Mattie turn so this questions from Adam who writes hi Jason Mattie and Kirk loved the show listen every every week. Here's my question. Have you ever played a game. You utterly disliked but then later revisited and realized it was brilliant whether it was a slow opening that stopped you from getting to the good stuff breath or your opinion just purely changed and you had to admit to yourself that you were wrong. The first time bloodborne. Yeah so good answer. Yes as games or like that a lot. I think I played what demon's souls and didn't love it. I kinda got. It was good but didn't really got it so maybe that counts. I'm trying to think though like utterly dislike team and then came back and realized it was good. I'm sure that there has been but I'm actually having trouble thinking of one. Mattie what about you I feel you like this happens to me with fighting games. Sometimes where I'll be bounced off of something really hard. I didn't use to be his industry fighter. I found it bizarre and I also used to really hey charged characters which I just didn't understand how they worked. And that's those are the those genre game where you just have to keep playing it and ideally. Have somebody explain it to you. Well starcraft craft is actually another example of this. where I I liked it? I wanted to enjoy it more but I was like. I don't really get this and then I had a friend who is really good. starcraft sat me down and just be like. Here's some really really good protest build orders. Let me just get you started on this and then I like I said either Jason never playing you. I've heard how good you are. I'm not interested. I'm not already I mean trust prepare. I'm not good at starcraft but I got to a point where I was like. I see what's enjoyable about this game and I'm enjoying it it but I feel like I've also had the opposite thing from this question happened where I really liked to game and then I go back and play it again later and I'm like this. This is shit like what I thought that that I think is pretty common especially games. We grew up with and have not aged very well another Let's except for Super Metro. which is age perfect? It's perfect game. Perfect perfect video game. Let's move on. Why don't we do one final question for this beautiful? This is a perfect Thanksgiving and question. Kirk give it to US okay. This comes from Christian. Who writes hi? All having thoroughly enjoyed untitled goose game pro tip for anyone who hasn't played it before. Do not accidentally return to the starting area until the game tells you to. I got lost and then spoiled it for myself. I got to thinking as to what other unwittingly hilarious animals would make for a good game so each of you. What untitled other animal game would you like to see made with a video game animal instead of a horrible goose? A few to get you started untitled head crab game untitled Abo- game untitled echo game where echo the dolphin swims into a wall for four hours. What are you waiting so okay? So this isn't a video. I think that we can expand this to regular animals in addition to video game first of all untitled Turkey game where you play as a Turkey and you have to avoid like. You're in the slaughterhouse. And you you have to get picked up giving cash booklets fat. Like I feel like that's an idea that's lived Turkeys Estonians Turkeys great escape Turkey. Avoid being killed three dark time of year for apparently every single Sunday night before Thanksgiving giving during Sunday night football NBC has been showing just like footage of Turkey. Slaughterhouse in me like well getting set for Thanksgiving and it just as the Kareem Thing Turkeys commentators Al Michaels and Chris Collins or if it will be like well that not a good week for those Turkey take it you got to kill the Turkey yourself. Everyone knows that right that other other animals until dog game. Yeah I mean I feel as an untitled Kagame would be. GimMe another like a first person cat game where you kind of mischievous cat. That's so on those like untitled use game basically is untitled cat game because it's goose titled Raccoon Game. I feel like raccoons are already animal. That does the things that goose dozen the game that it's it's not as funny like the goose works because it's not an animal you think about that much right because it makes such a ridiculous noise yes.

I don't know if he deserves to be on there but I just wanted to shout at like I just really love Arthur Morgan. I think he's a great video game. I do and I have to shot out Cate Archer. I would want Cate Archer kid archer. I'm thinking of your favorite characters and that's definitely one of my favorite video Divers skybridge three hundred. I think would get consideration for me. Garrett's guilty Riviera. I think it would be a pretty strong contender Allie from the last of us. Yeah I think you would. It be like angry. Ellie or young. Angry Ellie TB determined. If she definitely definitely angry to along with villains. I think Kafka Mattie mention Sulforaphane and there's a good that's what we could do there could be to. Mount Rushmore. Is the villains rushmore. And there will be across the street from the highway would be in the middle and then you could look at either one and they'd be like opposed to one another and also they're all kissing. Yes yes well. There's some kissing happening on each of the mountains awesome. I'm GonNa read this next one here is Charlie and this is a long email so I just made it a bridge. Charlie writes even though I won't be able to play death stranding branding Jason's comments about playing death standing on the switch even playing breath of wild instead. Got Me thinking if you only have intendo switch. I'm one of those people. How could you approximate approximate the death stranding ending experience? Here's what I came up with one load breath of the wild to go to high rocastle find a metal bookcase in the library. Three some in Wolf Link Amoeba required for for using your magnesium through and bring the metal bookcase the designated parts of Jairo while we'll flank. Accompanies you you the bookcase Wolf link all have to make it to the destination to complete the package still livery. I really would like to see people doing this as a speed around or something and like Muslim. You dividends death death stranding death death of the wild death the wild. I would add that you need to sneak like you can't really get into fights like we're keeping this kind of stealthy. This is the first half dusting and then also once you make the delivery you then have to watch all of the cut scenes in breath of wild that are saved on your game back to back like he just wants them. Yeah so that isn't a question is it's just funny mail. Let's keep going Mattie your turn share so. This one's from Josh. Who says tell us about your dungeons and dragons tabletop? RPG journeys recently read any cool new adventure. Modules tried out. Roll twenty any new game sessions. Tell us please points points so I have an curried tabletop. RPG's while I play Table Games we've talked about starting D. session or some kind of role playing system session but we haven't so actually having been playing now I haven't I haven't so the big joke everyone makes is one hundred percent true. which is that once you have a when you have? The indeed group together becomes impossible to find times when you can actually get together because someone out of town this weekend and then someone else can't do it because they have a feta this again. It happens that my group Including drew Baldwin. Who is listening to this? Show right now. Avid split screen. Listen my split screen or my Dean D.. Group happens to include a few people who are actors and our teachers and have just kind of unorthodox hours notice just as a for instance they have the theatre group. I was like Oh yes fan outrage for these are my NYU friends. So honestly that's your answer so in other words I haven't played since July and then the other part of this occasion I've been the d. m. d. m. and it's been entirely me coming up with the story and campaign and everything so I- prep each session like spend a few hours putting in to put a few hours indeed session before we start playing and that itself is just like so tough with a newborn and other responsibilities so that's been tricky I wish there were ways like I just don't think it's the same to play online. It's just not. It does not equate. The sits does not create the experience of Plane D at a table with a group of friends That said I was just texting when my group and trying to make a session happen soon so hopefully I will have more experiences to share in the future. But I promise split-screen listeners that next Indiana Indiana. We'll talk about it on the show in some capacity. Yes anytime replanning tabletop game. I talk about it then here. It's not. It's not an elaborate secret. We're keeping from Josh. Trust Trust me we should play sometime. Oh my God okay Kirk. You're up okay. This letter is this email comes from connor who writes. I am a working musician in New York City and as the years have gone on working on the thing I love I find it harder and harder to enjoy music on its own I tend to avoid it during my free time as my brain cannot stop analyzing what I'm hearing Kirk. You're one of the most joyous people I've ever heard who makes music fulltime and still has the capacity to listen and explore and analyze while seeming to while seemingly retaining the absolute love for it. What would you say it gives you the ability? And Mattie Jason Do you have things in your life like this games or otherwise WII and have you been able to overcome this issue so kirk. Have you been elaborately faking. And you actually despise me. I have some thoughts on this. So for starters so I don't make music full time in that fulltime implies that that's if that would be the main thing I'm doing for income which isn't the case and I know musicians who do and I think it is a lot harder like what connor is talking about. If you're if you're playing gigging every single night playing everyday like you're writing music for all kinds of things like you spend your work hours making making music. It can get harder to kind of have that just listening for pleasure things so because I don't do that and I have this kind of I was trying to maintain a balance which is not always easy between like video games and talking about gains and writing and making music and talking about music teaching and all these different things like. It's all in that balance I think for me anyways and that let me come to music fresh and have that experience of listening to it and just really enjoying what's good about it but also I don't know I mean I. I love listening to music and I always have have. I think like being a catastrophe for eight years and not making a lot of music especially for kind of for a five year period there. It made me. There will be times where I would sit down down and just put an album on with headphones and I would be like emotionally overwhelmed a little bit by the music and by using it was by this feeling of fuck what am I doing. It's like this is the thing this is my thing like. This is the thing I do more than anything else and I think I can tap into that feeling now because of that a little bit like I've I've been thinking about this little lately so that's part of it too. I think there was a period of time where I wasn't doing nearly enough music and it made me appreciate it even more and so I still feel feel that a little bit and so I should try to share that with people. So that's just me but you guys run into this kind of thing with with anything. Yeah sometimes I feel like I've run into it with different things over the years. Here's where if you do something creative for work. It's weird you can. You really are changing. How you Orient Yourself against that thing? Whatever it is whether it's video games or like you know and I worked at the Mary Sue I'd have to watch? TV shows really quickly for work sometimes and like sometimes. That wasn't as pleasant as you might imagine. It would be or just other things where you just have to suddenly only engage with something for many hours and on a deadline. Anytime we're doing that you're really changing. How you feel about the thing and I don't have like a hot tip for dealing with that and it's also a very uncommon problem that doesn't really necessitate a hot tip because who cares unless you're a entertainment journalists but I would have to find find ways to re explore the thing from another angle like in the case of game? Sometimes I'll get sick of John Raya and I'll just be like. Oh maybe I hate games now because 'cause I'm so tired of games and I'm like what about this other completely different kind of game. That's surprising me and delighting in a way I never expected and then I'm like Oh yeah games James can be. This games can do this. I don't know if that would work for music exactly but it might like doing something really different and wearing something different with music and being like Oh yeah music is it can also be this. Music can do this. And that's exciting again. I don't know Jason Women you so for me. I have never actually gotten sick of video games. Never in my life which I think is shocking. True gave her really. I just I don't know I like I could play I could maybe 'cause I don't waste my time with games that that I'm not enjoying like I'm the I'll never show allo right. You don't like get assigned reviewing shitty game. That you game reviewer for a job when I was when I was freelancing back in the day I definitely slogged through some shitty games but even then when it was like my spare time I would just WanNa play something that enjoyed instead but the to answer connors question the thing in my life. It's like this is actually reading nonfiction and especially reading like creative nonfiction journalism or like any sorts of journalism. Where you're I I kind of like emceeing the sausage I know so much sausage is made and I'm always it's tough Where when someone writes this story and it's nonfiction and it's really good? I'm always just asking myself after every single sentence. How does the writer no? It's like how. How could the right or possibly know this and it ruins a lot of nonfiction for me because so much of nonfiction books are so heavily fictionalized or like made aid so creative based on the details and stuff like that like everything from Erik? Larsen's like the devil in the White City and all those other books historical book city rights to like bad blood led by John Kerry Korea-u which is a great book about theranos in that whole. That'll scam But that's another. It was a great book but I'm reading reading everything I'm just like there's no way the author could have possibly known this like he's just a putting the pieces together based on what he was told second hand and kind of creating a story out of that and point being seeing that when you have done what I do or when you've done what we do for so long it's very difficult to just read something uncritically. So that's that's the big big thing for me. Yeah it's the sausage is made with video. Yes when if you're like a game designer heard from a lot of people who make video struggle to have fun playing them with music. It's like if you make music all the time. It can be hard to remove that you hear what's going on and certainly when I hear attitude horn section or something. I'm like you know like I can't hear here. That like that happens or as writers were all writers. There's definitely the feeling of when you're reading reading takes on a different quality when you've done so much writing and then so yeah anything that you do the more you do it the harder it gets breaks as good if possible but if it's your job that can be tough so All right why. Don't we take a quick break. We'll answer a few more more questions before saying goodbye and we are back once again. Let's crank through a a few more listener. Questions shall we shall we shall. Here's Joe Joe Says Hey.

"I think of plenty of funny emails gotten from companies. I used to tell Jackson slack about how I wanted to write a post about all of the bitcoin plus e sports related emails. Because there's a surprising public relations confluence between those two topics. I often get emails from people who are like dubiously in the world of sports and dubiously mining. BITCOIN getting bitcoin trying to get other people to be involved in Bitcoin in some way to get a lot of fun emails about that which I guess I can't legally say they're scams investigated them but a lot of them are often seem very scary. Sling me 'cause there's kind of thing we're east. Sports is like a Buzzword for people and it's like he's sports it's just business. There's money and the same way that Bitcoin bitcoin. I don't know money and they kind of have that quality separate games used to just generally fall into that category but like now. They're sort of a known quantity and so e sports like the buzzwords is worth scam emails fall under and as a person who writes about. He's still sometimes I. I'm on a lot of those Melissa. Still funny emails. What are you advertising using? What is this email even saying? So there's that But also you know I'm a woman on the Internet and I've been writing about video games for like over ten years which is terrifying to think about and it it also means. I've gotten some incredibly dumb emails. I don't think they're very funny. But you know just bad stuff. I don't I don't it actually even think it's worth getting too but it's it's usually emails is what I would always get and I just I don't I don't leave my DM's on on anymore on twitter. I just put my email and my bio because I feel like that slows down the ability for people to there's an extra step you know what I mean which I think is a classic thing that women do online. But I don't know that's my hot tip. I guess Jason was the funniest stuff you well. Yeah I get a lot of stuff. I won't get into all the negative beauty of it turns into articles. Good well I get a lot of horrible horrible things which I won't get into. I actually have a fun anecdote a little more fun anecdote than and rather than get into the the drunken the Anti Semitism and the the more controversial. But here's a here's a fun story so a couple pull of weeks ago. Around the time that the POKEMON discourse was reaching its fever be I got an email. I think it started on twitter. I got a tutor. Dm from someone who said that He. He knew someone at the POKEMON company who wanted to reach out to me about like work conditions and morale and Blah Blah Blah Blah. Okay sure here's my secure email just my proton on email like Jason Jared Dot com for time DOT COM And he said Okay Great and then he reached out to me there and then this other person claiming to be from the Fuck Company. Reach out I to me there and then I started getting messages from both of them. Just like a string of nonstop messages. Then I started getting two hundred yards from other people on top of that there were just like hey did you hear from this person. Hey did you check that email. Yeah it started turning into like five different people at that point I was like okay. You know what red flags on top of red flags here. Because I've been hoaxed. Many people have tried to hoax me. Many many times about all sorts of things and one of the big red size is like if a lot of people like. If you're really whistle blower you're not gonNA tell L.. Anybody like it would be stupid of you. Tell a lot of people that you're whistleblowing so it would be unlikely for a bunch of other people then contact. This clearly was a scam so at some point I was like. Hey Hey can you give me your phone number. Let's talk on the phone or skype. And so he sends me a phone number and I look it up and just do some cursory internet searches and track track. It's a some guy like some random dude and his twitter account and like he's tweeting about him out and stuff and I'm like Oh my God seven some kid in his early twenties you just phone number and then so just just out of curiosity I didn't. I didn't WANNA call him just out of curiosity like Hey Usually what I do in this sort the thing is asked for corroborating evidence like at ninety badge or someone like that you have an ID badge firm York that you can send me. and He sends me this image and it's it's like pokemon remind company. Id Badge in Japanese right. So I've been learning Japanese as you guys know so I can read the basic like the Basic Kana letters letters. which are all you really need to read a name and so there's a name on the ID badge? And so I can read it and Google and it turns out at some veteran pokemon like company company. Employee has nothing to do with this guy. WHO's been there for like thirty years? So of course he posted his badge on the Internet. Somewhere and I was just like man. This is the dumbest scam that I have experience yet. And it's funny. I just got mad at the mall for wasting my time. There's nothing worse than people singer time deliberately but anyway that's that's the funds stuff I don't get into the negative stuff. Let's von many. You Wanna read this next email. Sure so this one's from Daniel who writes while trudging through my steam in backlog. I decided to give final fantasy. Thirteen another go after falling off it multiple times during a tough battle I was rudely reminded of the fact that if the lead character dies. Is You get a game over. This is one of my most hated mechanics and RPG's if I can give a phoenix down to an ally why can't they give me one it pulls me out of the game a bit when things just don't make sense like this. I can suspend disbelief that my party has magic powers but I have a hard time believing that if a particular party member goes down the others just give up and die to you. This leads me to two things. I'd like to hear your take on I. What are your least favorite game mechanics and gaming in general and second? Do you suffer from thinking about logistics. Dick's death stranding aside. That game sounds like logistics the video game and are technicalities to the point that it pulls you out of the experience. Oh Man Yeah. That's a terrible one in persona persona does the same thing. Yeah in the Persona Games. It's really fucking annoying because you'll just because they also have instant death spells. I was GonNa say it's just like unlucky. One key strike and then you lose an hour progress it. Yeah that's really annoying one One thing that really really bothers me. There are a lot of things that really bothered me as mechanics in games one of them. Is anyone listening to this. Show knows they're one of them. These days especially is lack lack of auto save and like like losing your progress. Allah Persona Five If you die in a battle just because I am so old and and so out of time. There's so many games that I just do. Not Have the patience. Replay an hour of any game so that is the thing that will most that is most likely to just like would make me stop playing something. What about you guys? Kirkwood isn't what have you. Yeah I think. Loss progresses a huge problem now and he's asking about game mechanics. which is like a little different than you know ban check pointing or or like unstoppable? Death cut scenes like into human or whatever wasn't that the one where the Valkyrie comes and takes you up to Holland it takes a minute and a half every time he died and so those are like bad things but bad mechanic I R. I don't generally like mechanics that make me lose progress like if you you die you begin to get worse. This can be a thing in destiny bounties for example when you go into the crucible and kill people but if you get killed your progress meter goes backwards grants can just be. That's a really potent thing to fuck with and you know Soles Games and games that make you risk progress. That can be really cool like it can work really well to raise. The stakes aches and be exciting. But it's very intense in the minute you start getting into like you let the player fall into this negative loop where you know. They're losing and losing losing more and then an hour later they're back farther behind where they were when they started an hour ago. That can just turn really bad at least on me like it. Psychologically difficult so so I don't. I don't like that mechanic though. It feels like you're you're not losing progress because the progress is kind of in your mind like what you learned about the limit i. I'm not saying that souls does that at all. Souls does a very good job of playing with the same kinds of ideas. I'm saying like when you're playing with that you've got to do it. Well and be careful souls generally do you do it well but it can dicey thing to play with so there are times where it can turn bad mattie. What about you a couple of different questions within this question like one of them is the idea of a mechanic that contradicts the games own logic which I feel is a very common thing like yours of more? Let's revive people in the heat of battle but not when they die dramatically in a cut scene which is like a joke. That's told about very often but off. Yeah like every game has some equivalent one of of that but then there's also the idea of just a game having some logistical trials. That within the scope of the game I don't know if they even make sense for the world like the most recent example in my mind isn't US training. Actually I think the logistics in that game are pretty forgiving. Perhaps because there are so many auto save options in that game so you can really redo emission and make sure that you have everything you need and it's super easy to go back but like fire. Emblem I really hate the system of changing out your weapons and leveling mm all your shit in that game all of that you I I never started to like it. I just found it tedious annoying like going to the shop up getting the battalion's recharge it all felt so administrative in so boring to me and I really just wanted there to be a button that was like give everybody the most powerful weapons for whatever. They're freaking type is I. Don't even care. I don't WanNA think about this. But now you have to manually go through and like make sure everyone has the crap weapons or like the number of times that I was started battle in that game and like a couple of people have forgotten stupid weapons equipped for some reason and like the other ones would be in my little vaults and I'd have to go back out and do you like okay. Let me I mean Redo this because like one of you broke your lance or something and now you have a bad weapon. I find that stuff so annoying. That really takes me out of a game like plot. Wise is even because I'm like this doesn't feel like a real problem. This feels like a stupid problem that would never have. I am being forced to do any of this. But yeah she's way. Hey better. Training has like a triangle. You hit so you just frigging reorient. All your stuff and it's good like every game should have that Diane having read Celia Hogan's book and like you ex design because I've always been fascinated by earliest increasingly fascinated by it. But it really goes to show how you X. and you X. designers there's that's user experience for anyone who's which is ties in an interface and all that stuff. It's so the difference between logistics being fun active part of the game and Shitty Chore. Sure you don't want to deal with so many have terrible you X.. Where like you have to go through every fucking store like you're talking about with each item and their other games where it's like a fun part of the game is optimizing demise and doing your load out in doing it and it's just gets into even little things like you know like how it feels to move a thing around or what buttons are are you know queued to what action it really is a fascinating weird thing that is not really well understood even by me? But I'm with you on that for sure especially good and you can tell when it's bad got you extra experiences. That's true all right. Let's get to the next question. Kirk it is your turn okay. Hey this comes from Sheron who writes hi Mattie Kirk and Jason. Here's my mail bag question. Who would you put on your Personal Mount Rushmore video game characters bonus question question? Who would you put on the Mount Rushmore all video games? My industry-wide Rushmore is probably very similar. To most people's Mario Lara Croft master chief. And pacman my personal mount rushmore would be murrow doomed Guy Nico Belic and Tim from Braid I think. Let's say the Personal Mount Rushmore. Let's do that. I WanNa hear each of your personal. Not Rushmore Jason. You don't have to do all of them just like who are some of the characters that would be on your personal mount rushmore. Okay my personal Mount Rushmore. I think Mario Oh has to be on there. I think link has to be on there and I realized that I'm choosing to Kinda silent protagonists but I think they're iconic Hanoch enough to be there. Let me think so. Let me let me think while you're thinking here's a couple that I would maybe throw out there to put on there. There could be some villains on their videos are so defined by their villains that it could be like show Dan and a big daddy and like the G man..
