"Don't get bread and saw matza which is fine. The don't expect brad so people are like i did. This didn't work. I gave a gift and then ask for referral. My best night gift allergy. That's give get that's that's a bait and switch. That's a manipulation reading. I didn't send you the gift until after we'd had a conversation involved a little bit of a record. Most people want to send gifts to cole. I'm like why don't you pour gasoline on the five hundred ernie warmer hots. Yep and so most people like say. They're playing the long game but really what they're doing. They're playing it in days not decades in your somebody. You know these guys. They really play it for decades. That in for me. When i was twenty four decades to get to where the skies at in so like i love playing chess game and i know you do. That's why i was so excited to have the conversation like this guy gets it. David lives it in has for even longer than i have. It's so good. And i was just with the padres and i my my latest one gift allergy using your three guidelines gets in the last one was. I told him hey. Let's get a sponsorship from the local hospitals scripts and let's have every baby blanket that's given to a baby when they're born say padres on it and they're like they got it right away right because it appreciates the decision makers family it develops a relationship not only with the family. That's there but every picture of that kid when he looks back at five six ten twenty twenty-five subliminal he's going to be in a padre blanket. And you know i. I would tell them to stop digital marketing by a bunch of blankets and put around these kids or give you know every five year old san diego. A free totti's jersey. A is the smartest thing you could do. Which is the last of the guidelines you have three you know guidelines basic is. How do we treat people with respect. It was it was the one that was it obvious to me like i. I've been doing this longer than anyone. I get the real value but appreciating the spheres of influence. I always call the you called decision-makers family. I call it. Spheres of influence obviously develop relationships. My whole life's about relativity but tr- you know when i saw treat them with respect. I was wondering how that fits into the gift. Haji yeah well. I think that most people treat the gatekeeper like a second class citizen even gatekeeper has a connotation of somebody get around somebody to get through somebody to to get a side into me like when i saw them. Paul my original answer was like he treated the janitor at the same level as to see like with respects in. So you know when you treat the inner circle assisted. The chief of staff knew a lot of times where i speak from the stage. A i'm giving just as nicely gift to the. Ceo is the event planner. Y the event planner does all the hardwork gets all the hassle and gets treated like crack and gets another credit. And they're the ones doing all the hard work so i'm always looking for the people that are under appreciated in treating them with the same level of respect and treating them like appear not upon. And so when you can do that with you know everybody says oh thank you i so appreciate your time but show me what you do with your time and with your checkbook not just with your lip service. And when you when i spoke at gu. I remember sending gifts to every single person that helped orchestrate. It's like twenty people at the event and they some knives and people writing say john. This is the nicest gift i've ever received a google. I'm like come on. Like i said he won knife like john is first time we've ever received something. A handwritten note with our name on it in there is no google logo are like some of them were in tears when they wrote it aja moved emotionally over a stupid knife now. A couple hundred dollar knife but it was. It was the fact. I treated them like an equal. Even though they were in google's is they weren't an engineer they weren't maybe as valuable because they're in event planner an assistant or whatever and so to me like any any client that we're working with. I'm always the question i follow up with. Harvey mackay questions like mckay sixty six. It's like with their assistance name. What's their kids names. Their wife or husband's name. In the like. I don't know i'm michael then. You can't work with us right unless you get that data then gift. Algae won't work. You just want send stuff that makes you look cool. Feel that's not what we're about we're about emotions. Were about psychology whereabout about like invested dollar and get one hundred dollars back that doesn't happen by descendant fancy crap in the mail. It happens because you have a real trusted respect level and understanding of human beans and most people think it's just send inexpensive soft like that's the last thing that it's the the doorman approach to me. I always taught you know Treat your friends like your bosses bosses like your friends but you never like the valley and the doorman. I don't understand why more people don't gift or at least hit big. Because i've never met one valet guy that you know. I didn't either give a gift to her or give a hundred dollar tip to that. Every time i went there never charged me for parking again right now the tips that kept coming but even more importantly they started to know my name. So if i go to a place like the ritz. Carlton and i drive up. Talk about the value. People are scarcer. Like well you're wasting your money. Look i don't do it to trade. I do it because nobody else is doing. I want to be abundant reward. Make someone feel good to be happy but this what happened by being abundant i show up. Oh my god. Mr meltzer right. And meanwhile i could be with the significant billionaire. Who all of a sudden. Like how the hell's the valet. No dave meltzer like did help give quick. Nother story my favorite i. I've always gifted the head of concessions at the stadium. Always gifted them. Well one time friend of mine said. I have two kids that are in the boston care. And they're green bay fans. I had two season tickets and the in fifty our line. So i said sure. Let me give him my ticket. So these two kids who are in foster care from montana. Fly down to see their dream team green bay. The san diego chargers at the time yeah given the concession diet a- gift to thank him and i called him and said hey i have these two foster kids. Can you just go over there. And tell them i'm here. I want to welcome you for mr meltzer at the stadium. And whatever you want to buy you know. Just tell me i'll have it delivered to the seat right well. I will tell you that you know that story by itself right in my besides what it meant to those kids people in the stadium where the hell is is david meltzer and our short-sighted like i'm not going to spend i'm not going to tip one hundred dollars. I'm not going to buy them a gift. What what is it in for me. The thing is when you think it's not for you that's when it will be for you Do have one example of a story like that. I'm sure you have thousands. But could you share one. Because i love these stories. Yeah so so. What i'll say is that like you're never met somebody. That's putting into practice at the level because so many people are like. Yeah what's the benefit and might it's not just the gift it's really the story that gets told and then it becomes this ripple effect that it's almost like i something i did now it wasn't to the concession errors somebody that matt at an event i barely qualified for. Eeo which is like the lower than you know like junior varsity not really but it's smaller white the why tends to be bigger companies. Espn's to be some twenty million. So i barely qualify. Go to this event. I almost left the event. 'cause i was like i found out one of the guys paid for kissed to come in privately. A quarter million dollars because they didn't have budget. And i was like i could barely qualified to go to. The event cost me ten grand. This is like when i was twenty six. And a steve witness speaking privately to us but anyway one of the guys that was speaking there was I'd never heard of somebody. One eight hundred got junk from two million two hundred twenty. Seven nine.

"Yeah, it's it's an elevated feeling. So you've done it many like I don't think it ever gets old. But especially for somebody of your night nature. Who's a historian by trade, knowing that these gentlemen have been gentlemen to this point. Are living and working in the same building that Lincoln worked in that zoo. Kind of awesome A lot of ways. Forget about the political going into the White House. I went into the White House and they invited me to a private luncheon when W. Was president, sir. Private luncheon at the White House. And Upstairs in the residence where the secret Service isn't even allowed. So it's just the family and there were maybe about 15 of us at the table and you don't go and pick your seat. There's a little card a little placard. It's put in front of your dish tells you exactly where to sit and the card. Max is staring at it right now because it's in my office. But it says Mr Meltzer onto the housing beautiful engraving of the White House on it on my first thought. When I see my card is I'm stealing that cord. Sorry. That's my first thought, and and they sit me next to Barbara Bush. And I sit down next to the first former first lady at that point, and she leans to me shows, you know all the novices, Brad. They all try to steal their cars. And Mike. I know all those novices not appointed. I said, look, respected Ginsberg. And then when she turned away, I totally swipe my card, which I have to this day. Um, but, you know you eat no matter where you are, what you're doing in that White house. You can't help but know that you're in the midst of Abraham Lincoln walked these halls. This is the Lincoln Bedroom, Not because they named it after he slept there and you're in these places and you're touring around. And, um, you know, if you don't feel that breath of history, you're not paying attention. Before we conclude yet another radio get together, which is so much fun for me, and I know for the listeners. Um uh, you and I had the great honor and pleasure of talking about the restoration of the Superman house in Cleveland. Way back in 97. I remember that. And I just wanted you to comment on your work with comic books because as industrious as you are with history and and research and all that you still have had time To do what we Gigi. People love to see. And that's the comic book stuff. Um, where do you stand with comic books right now? What do you working on? Yeah. So, listen, that was our first bonding moment is our love of Superman. And to me, I know. You know, I've been lucky enough to write Batman and Superman and I just did a new spider man for the Marvel asked me to do one because my kids love Spider Man and wanted me to do one. But Me. They're no different than writing about George Washington. Abraham Lincoln and I realized that two of those people are imaginary and two of them are you know real presidents. But they are part of the American psyche. They're part of what a hero is, is. It's someone who teaches you how to be a better person. And to me the most important part of the story's never been super map, the most important part of stories, car tents. Why? Because we're all Clark Kent. We all know what's likely born in ordinary, which could do something beyond ourselves, So I just did a new Spider Man book. I actually just didn't do bad man story with the Medal of Honor Museum board member on the National Medal of Honor Museum to honor The recipients of the Medal of Honor, and we just had a beautiful story..

"Instances its success with a lens of productivity accessibility ingratitude. But most importantly you'll be able to empower others to empower others to do the same. I think that when it comes to game theory infinite game vs finite game. If one person wants to be the best basketball player they can possibly be losing. One game is a good thing. If someone wants to win a game this week and it needs to happen there in scarcity and i think what's interesting is one person's going to take that failure and use it as a report card to become the best basketball player that they can be the other person's gonna let it affect them and maybe stop playing altogether. And so. I think you've taught us so much in terms of that in terms of playing an infinite game from your perspective. Do you now believe where more on that. Ledger of the infinite game side. Yeah i think one of the areas to that. We can work on together. Something that i've learned since we've been working together. Is this conflict between the vibrational setting in which you're play here me out. One of the conflicts that i realized coaching. Seventy people highs level chairman's before june ten companies. Now all the way down a young entrepreneurs that help is that if all of this is true that you're teaching mr meltzer. Then why would. I play a basketball game. Because it's a scarce environment. There is a winner in a loser in the context of the rules of the game. It's at one of the lower vibrations. Right were constantly competing. It's a scarce in time. It's a scarcity in source in in score it's a scarcity of individual and team the there's all these different lower vibrating things but in that would make our lives so enjoyable. Is that if we have an awareness that we are just playing a game at this vibration right ren we could maximize our participation enjoyment of the game and still live at a higher vibrating level. So that if i wanna go ahead and play a game of one on one basketball with you i'm okay with being competitive in talking trash in you'll having judgments and conditions in being competitive and comparing ourselves in making fun of you all the things that probably make the game much more enjoyable under the context that i live my life in a different frequency. Sometimes we about you know. It's not not where you visit. It's where you live. I'm coming to the realization that to visit the game a lower vibrating. You can visit that live there. Right wrongs as you acknowledged in your wear. Recollect the remember that you live at a higher source and you don't take yourself so seriously but you participate in something of a lower vibration like a basketball game because that's where we live this vibration that you're pursuing to buy a bigger house or you want to experience what. It's like to have a really cool sports car with whatever it is..

"At the time. And her response was simply. How can i help you. How can i be of service. It seems like your big family man because like you know you learn a lot from your mom and then also your wife and your dad and your wife and i think it was your friend. You had mentioned that they had kind of spokane the catalyst three points that changed me one was when i was thirty before i lost everything my dad when i was ten forgot my birthday right and killed me and he made up an excuse. Why forgot my birthday. Because he doesn't believe in birthdays because he was so hurt he forgot so for twenty years. I never got a birthday present from my dad and at thirty when i was starting to understand my dad he gave me. This beautiful jacket fit perfectly. Which is the biggest compliment to ever. And then i open it in the pocket. Were all torn out like. That's what i said like really so. I called him and i'm like all right now. What's the deal. Because he was at arrogant guy. He retired what he's young married. A young second wife cheated on my mom like he's a human but like i'm like what is it. Now he goes. I can't even wear this jacket i go. It's beautiful thought. You didn't believe in birthdays. He apologize he said. I'm worried about you. I said what why we were help me. I have everything. I'm worried about you and i go well. What are you giving me this. He said go hanging in your closet now once you look at it every day like why he goes. I don't want you to be the richest man in the cemetery because you can't take anything with you. I want you to remember that. Because you remind me of myself. When i was thirty years old and i don't want you to be like me and that's when i realized about my father i said gosh the things i hate about my father is what i hate about myself. The next time on a golf course friend best friend who grew up right by me and my wife told me i asked him. Why don't you hang out with me anymore. And he said. I don't like who you hang out with and i'm like well. I'm not doing the things that they're doing. And a kit accord he goes. You can lie to me but don't lie to yourself then a couple months well. It was actually very shortly after my wife woke me up and said she wasn't happy. 'cause i came home in altered state of mind at five thirty in the morning from a grammy party with little john thinking is a rockstar and she told me you are not a rockstar. And i'm going to be leaving if you don't change and those were the things those three points stick out in my mind that move me towards transformation of living my life in service and when i say living life and service people get confused right because i'm not mother teresa. I'm not walking the streets of calcutta. I'm compassionate capitalist. I love money right if you think about my philosophy of more than enough of abundance thing having through me i believe i still wake up before i still in and accessible but i believe anything comes through me for other people. I'm is will make a lot of money. Because i can help. A lot of people have a lot of fun. And i'm a realist. The best way to help people is to have a lot of money. I think warren buffett is going to help more people and bill gates with their billions of dollars than my mother who i adore has been a teacher in a catalyst and has nothing in her whole life but still she needs my help right. And so in essence she's been a catalyst for people to help a few people students and maybe a couple of hundred but billions of dollars. Come on you could hire thousands of my mom. That's what i wanna do today. Obviously see your big family. Man bring miles out here. It's obviously super important to you And i'm sure you instill a lot of principles that you've learned throughout the years into your four children. What are the biggest lessons. Or what is the biggest lesson you want your kids to take with them. Learning things from you this four things number one by far gratitude. I want them to look at everything with appreciation which means to add value so the past always be wonderful. Their president will be better in their future even brighter The second would be empathy. Which is forgiveness. I want them to learn to forgive themselves And that's why eliminate so you know as a parent is scary to eliminate all the screw ups But i those. Because i want them to see that i forgive myself because if i hold forgiveness in my heart i can forgive other people Third one is stolen from my mom. See always used to say don't with six kids don't go below the line which meant 'blame-shame in justification you know when you're in a small apartment with six kids it's to play him everywhere else So i really want my kids to be accountable. Meaning if anything happens anything in your life two questions one. What did i do attracted to myself. What am i supposed to learn from. Those are the two things the last one is the hardest. And i'm still learning this the other three. I'm pretty good at Effective communication so Effective communications that you connect to other people emotionally so that you understand that you actually are motivating not manipulating and the key is the second part of effective communication is i want them. All to live inspired life consistently persistently in the pursuit of their potential. So whatever they believe in. I want them to live and inspired life so they can inspire others to inspire others. Hopefully it'd be happy. Self-awareness politico pro pro. Sometimes that's that's it so your mantra mission statement of life make a lot of money help. A lot of people have a lot of fun. That's a see your grandfather put into a young age. yeah Gave me great piece of advice. Do right the was the start of that. Which was you only need. Three things in life to be happy. Okay you need good job because the third of your life is spent working so you need to love what you do to. You need to find one partner in life because that's the days between you and your family and their family so you need one of the right partner. I mine is my wife and you know they say behind. Every great man is a great woman. Not me my my wife is in front of me pulling mir along making eight and then allowing me to get all the credit And then the last one was pretty funny. My grandfather's from russia. So he's like you just need one bad so by the best that you can find because you spend thirty of your life sleeping and she's being so but it was good advice so you need one woman one job in one bag. When did you find the right job. That's a really great question. Because what i find talked to a lot of nuts as young entrepreneurs middle aged people women and men that feel stuck in their jobs and and what i see is the biggest mistake that they're making. Is they limit their point of entry. Everybody's looking for you know mr meltzer. How do we become a sports agent. Do i do that. They get. I reverse engineered. How i became a sports agent. Went to law. School was going to be oil and gas lawyer. Maybe a sports agent. But then got into the internet and right and i sold legal research online. Then i went to silicon valley and raised a bunch of money for a wireless proxy server. Company then became c o of a hand held company. Then lose everything right. Who's going to buy that advice. The real advice is don't limit your point of entry so my entire career was about the pursuit of my potential and i enjoyed what i did every day. I'm not a person i never. I gotta go to work. Or i gotta go home. I got to babysit my kids. It's i get right in the minute you get to. And you don't limit the.

"Thank you. All right. I'm Mr Meltzer. This is my first training session I. Appreciate this opportunity. My question is as a new entrepreneur and business I'm feeling stuck at the earliest ages. I'm not getting responses from me my ideal client it feel like I'm spinning my wheels what advice do you have to break through this? Thank you first of all segment. Segment it out. Take a study of how long is it GONNA take to get my first two clients to tell to other people to be clients of my. Once you have that formula, you have the first segment and then your goal of that first segment is to double it again in less time. So. I start maybe it takes me a year to get to clients And they give me to clients. I now have four clients. It may take me eleven months to get those four clients to give me. Another four clients may seem like a long time, but in twenty segments up two million clients getting you two billion clients. You have to detach your motions from the incremental growth that you're feeling right now, which calls it an incremental growth in a business businesses called stuck to. So everybody gets that clear if you're incrementally growing in your business. Beyond your perception, you don't see it is beyond your bank account. So you don't feel it It's beyond your memory so you don't remember it. But that is exactly what's happening. You are where you want to be stuck is where you wanna be because if you didn't feel stock that means you're not growing. That means you're not growing. And so No. Looking at that. You're not growing of it if you don't feel stock so feel stock stick to it. Get better at what you're doing, whatever it takes to get those first two clients to clients, make it faster and make it better and when you stick to that, it'll exponentially go you have to have a rage of persistence and consistency, but a Buddha allowance for happened in the right way the perfect time. and. You can't do that. So please stick to it. Remember Ninety, nine percent of the people quit before their twenty five percent of the way they're another ninety, nine percent of the one percent quit before the fifty percent there. If you bill stock get stuck more, keep on accelerating and growing.

"Employees driven focus of community health effects how he leads the health system and how it sets them apart. Mr. Meltzer has been CEO and president of Life Bridge Health since two thousand thirteen earned his master of Public Health and Health Administration from Tulane. University. School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine in Louisiana. And was previously the National Chairman for the American heart. Association. I guess the best place to start is to tell me a little bit about yourself and and your system Neil I've found that that life bridge is fascinating on a number of fronts, which is one of the reasons why I wanted to talk to you and some of the things that you're doing there So why don't you kick us off today by by talking a little bit. About yourself in life bridge. Sure. My name is Neal Meltzer. I've been at Life Bridge for thirty years into what was going to be a five year plan for me when I began at life bridge life breach was just one hospital Sinai Hospital of Baltimore, which had its roots back in eighteen sixty six really for the purpose of teaching individuals who are being discriminated against and couldn't get residency programs elsewhere. And over the past hundred and fifty plus years we've grown into a two point one, billion dollar. With. A be integrated delivery and financing system comprised of primarily for hospitals thirty eight urgent care centers. For Nursing. Homes. And assisted living facility and a whole variety of entities which really. And from wellness. Through hospice. How we serve primarily the central Maryland region but we go as far north as southern Pennsylvania and as far east as the northern part of Delaware. My background personally is actually in health or nuclear physics were studying impact of nuclear power in the environment and somehow managed to find my way into running a health system through the concept of public health recognizing that when I graduated doing nuclear physics that there were a whole lot of jobs for world savers at the time and I was offered an opportunity to to work in a hospital at the time and realized that I could still have an impact on the environment and the community we serve through that mechanism suing your market Neil. You have some pretty big competition who who are you going up against We're in a very dense market within eight miles from us. We must have I would say probably eight. Hospitals. The big competition is Johns Hopkins Health System eight miles to the southeast and university of Maryland Medical System, which is eight miles to the south west and they have facilities or satellite hospitals surrounding us as well. So it's in a kind of unusual situation when I began at Sinai Hospital almost thirty years ago Sinai was considered one of the hospitals most likely to close in part because the community felt that it wasn't necessary to have a Jewish hospital in this day and age first. Of all and secondarily, there was a sense that we were over bedded and In fact, if you take a look at the number of beds per thousand in Maryland and you compare it to some other states, we are probably over bedded by a thousand twelve hundred too many beds. But I think the unique reimbursement model in Maryland is beginning to move us in the right direction I want to get to that that reimbursement model a second I think one of the questions that. That other executives listening to this are thinking about your unique market is, how do you compete? How do you differentiate yourself? You've gotTa Johns Hopkins on on one doorstep and the back door you've got the University of Maryland It's pretty much. So equidistant. So how do you differentiate yourself? How do you how do you? Compete in that environment I think I, think it's a good question and it's an important point and something that we talk about frequently here and I really feel that every organization has its own unique personality. When I take a look at Hopkins I think they do a wonderful job treating the esoteric and their market is really the world I take a look at University of Maryland which is fairly close to us, and they're a wonderful training ground and they train number of Primary Care Physicians for our community. When I take a look at life bridge but I've tried to do is create a a purpose for the organization. So I've had our employees worked together to come up with a purpose statement, which is really the filter through which we all decision and the purpose statement which they came up with which I happen to endorse is creating healthier communities together. And when we talk about communities, we talk about not only the community surrounding the organizations that we serve, but but the internal communities as well. So it could be a community of department could be a community of the hospital could community of a neighborhood that we serve but it's important to recognize that our culture is one that focuses really on making the folks around us better. If you will. We don't have a national perspective although we would like to be nationally recognized in in one or two areas. Our focus is really on the community. We like to say that we're the organization with a social conscience where the community conscience we the community's health system and we care for the people around us and what Kinda unique is if you take a look at. The flagship possible Sinai hospital although we're located in a fairly urban area, there's not an ounce of graffiti around the organization when I took over as the president of the hospital. The first thing I did was take defenses down from around the organization, opening ourselves up in some symbolic way to the communities that we serve, which sent a subliminal message or not such subliminal message that you know we are here for for those around, US were not to put a fence up between us and the and the community. We want people to feel comfortable that we were that we were a neighbor that we were an organization that welcomed everyone regardless of where they live or their ability to pay. And one of the things that we've done I think which makes someone unique is we've been heavily focused on population health for for decades even before it was called population health ending population houses become a bit of a buzzword. Now when I started, we used to call it prevention but for all intents and purposes, we have been developing services that really support some vulnerable communities of that secret our services responding probably somewhere in the vicinity of twenty, two, million dollars a year with over. Two hundred employees forty five different programs ranging from pediatric HIV to programs that assist.

"mr meltzer" Discussed on 83 Weeks with Eric Bischoff

"It sounds like the most juvenile fucking idea was it was like Highschool Shit but it was fun as hell and I was hoping to hear about a read about it. But I'm AH. I'm guessing Vince. No sold it and was somehow able to ensure customer a couple of bucks but find a way to get a room but yeah we we. We cancelled cancelled. Israel is and was able to pull that up because of the people that he knew probably misrepresentative self to a degree. I love it it was great. That's a great story. Sorry it's it's so Eric Bischoff something else that is Eric Bischoff whether we like it or not. We're coming off the main event of your biggest pay per view view of the star. Cade this one from Nineteen ninety-four that main event went down in Nashville Tennessee. All cogan the biggest wrestling starter. Ever was defending his title against Brutus. The fucking barber beefcake After that of course hawks GONNA start a feud with a real inner vader. They're going to have the first ever match at the Super Bowl pay per view in February. So that's where we're headed We should you mentioned that There's still the seeds of what is going to be with Nitro with all the international flair Starting to bubble to the surface here a little bit I answer would report. The cruiserweight tournament has been delayed for a while because nobody has gotten their act together. As far as bringing in outside talent there Bischoff in Japan this week for the Tokyo Dome at home expect that he'll request one or two wrestlers like Otani and been Wa they have verbal deal with `Antonio To Send Two wrestlers opinion is looking the sand Straw Oughta and Eddie Guerrero. Although her Bischoff didn't want Guerrero I don't know obviously even says I've heard Bischoff didn't want Guerrero. Do you remember ever thinking. Maybe Eddie wasn't ready for Prom Tom. Or is this more rumor and Innuendo. You call it rumor in anyone to I call all at pure fiction. It's just Dave meltzer being dave meltzer he wrote something because he had to. He has ten thousand word quota for his toilet paper. He called the wrestling observer and he had to fill it up and he just makes shit up. We know that anybody listens to the show. Anybody that listens to Bruce's show anybody that's even read regularly read meltzer stuff and has witnessed. How much of it is just pure bullshit? Fabrication knows that he just make stuff up to make himself sound like he's wired into an industry that he's really not that wired into he's probably got a small network of stooges that work work out there in a rustling in various wrestling companies. Still to this day who feed him the information that they want him to pair it because he they know that's basically what he is in this case he's either making it up or was stupid enough which is highly probable to just repeat. Repeat something or infer something as a possibility that some stooge fed him. Because everybody knew if you want to read it just feed at the Dave gave. He's not smart enough and doesn't work hard enough at what he does. It doesn't have enough integrity within what he did then and what he does now to second second source or confirm with any principles evolve so it was just good. You know it's just more more diarrhea for the sewage. Pipe called you know the wrestling observer server but it wasn't true at all in fact he was one of the original cruiserweights that I brought in So it it makes no sense on on the surface. But neither most of the stuff that you read and Meltzer's dirty hypothetically run into Dave on the On on the vote no and I'm glad I didn't You know I was Kinda look at first of all Dave Pussy so it's not not like I didn't want to run into him for fear of confrontation if ecstasy opposite of that knowing how fired up I can still get even at this advanced age and and clearly not physical condition To to tangle with anybody I was more concerned for my own level of reaction than anybody somebody else's And I just didn't WanNA get on a cruise ship with that kind of attitude. Because I I tend to get that way Still to this day not as often not up to the same degree but it is part of my DNA. And I didn't run into him but interestingly Enough Booker T. did now I wasn't isn't there I in an unlike Dave Meltzer. I don't give detail or description or talk about things that one guy said and the other guy said if I wasn't there to hear it but I I had heard from someone who was at this event where this scene took place there that there was this confrontation where day meltzer decided he was going to join Booker T. and Rick Flair who were sitting at a table? I think in Green Room and upset island hell hang out with hang out with the boys being the Jackson effort that he really is although he says it's not he really really is and booker. T. Tatham from what I've been told I wasn't there. I didn't see it and went absolutely awesome. and Dave being the pussy that is of course tucked tail and ran. I heard that I thought okay travel. Gurus Guerrero's the one that told me and I heard that that's really good. I I need. Hopefully I'll run into booker again before the trip is over and asked him about it and sure enough is I was getting off the boat. Actually it's a ship. Keep calling it a boat like it's a fourteen foot fishing boat. You know on a lake when as I was disembarking off the ship in Miami I I was like the fourth one off the ship Booker T. Sharma. Were right ahead of me. And I asked Booker about it. He all lit up again. It was like seven thirty thirty in the morning. I think booker sorry. I'm sorry I brought it up but you know man I like talking about it. Be a booker. Wanted to rip his head off And I think it's important important. Dave has relationships with certain people whatever The vast majority of people who have been in the industry can't stand him in booker. T's probably right at the front of the line. Yeah I learned This last year. How much Booker does not like Mr Meltzer. But I don't know man I still like the observer another bad person but no just makes you a poorly informed ha. You're still a good person. You're just a good person that likes to read a lot. And that's one of the reasons people like a lot of people like to read the national enquirer even though they know. It's even if that still exists. I don't know but you know the tabloid news people love re if they know that it's bullshit but they like reading bullshit and that's fine but you have to take it for what it really is and not put too much stock in it Did you ever I mean I can't believe we're all the way back in down the rabbit hole the health or stuff. Have you ever just like hung out with meltzer. Why social like not wrestling not not not business business? Not just the facts Ma'am reporter town subject but just like have a couple beers or breakfast or whatever ooh I don't think so. I mean if if I did it was brief or it was incidental meeting. There may have been other people around in a group group setting and you know because it was a time. When I talked to Dave I opened it I opened my you know? Open my office up to date. If he had acquire under reason I did. It is because he was so poor at your reporting facts and I understood that you know. Nobody will talk to him. Well then he's going to report whatever here's because he's not going to do any work not gonNA actually go to events in right about them. He's going to rely on somebody who bought a ticket. Who is going to tell is going to report back today? What is show was like based on you know Dave's own prejudices and agenda so I thought well what a better way to try to fix that? Just open it up and Zane. Breslau was was the person to convince me to do that and I did until pillow. Got to the point where you know. Even though I gave him access he would still right stupid shit. I don't fuck it. You can't get changes colors. He is what he is. He's never going to really do the work. He's Never GonNa have the integrity at that he should have. He's not going to check his sources. He's just gonNA write bullshit so that was the end of that so there may have been a period of time. You know when I was trying to develop a relationship with Dave through through Zane Where we may have gotten together nothing stands out in my mind? Can't you know recall one incident. But it's possible. I Guess Super Nice guys. The reason I mentioned I have been able to hang out with him and social savings and Great Guy and I just think that you guys would if you met him and you didn't know he was Dave Meltzer. You guys will be fast France but that will never happen. MELTZER would right Hogan has a meeting this week to discuss revival thunder in paradise with a new name Thunder Force In which a four person team Hogan's team Mr T.. And a female martial artists would all be equal co-stars. Of course we know. This didn't come to pass. How close was this becoming reality? A STING MR T. Hogan TV show in nineteen ninety five. This is the first. I'm hearing about it so it at. I'm not saying that there hadn't been a conversation that sounded something like. Hey what if we did this. Or because of hogs relationship with Russia entertainment the people that were producing thunder in paradise. It may be an idea. I don't know but it was not something that I was a part of a discussion that I was evolved in nor nor do I remember hearing it until just now so who knows. It could have been just chatter that they reported as fact which again at the beat it to death but that wasn't unusual or it it could could have been a conversation at somebody had at one point. What if that Like I said is somehow somehow made its way to the newsletter and somebody who needed a safety net themselves is the Honky tonk man it makes the observer here the hockey top man deal was. He refused to do a job for johnny bad. As asked stark aid hurting the one source he would have done it had he received a contract. WCW is willing to offer him one but the the two sides where about fifty thousand dollars on a price tag and it looks. As though aren't Anderson will be replacing him against Johnny bad at the clash. Monkhouse buck worked as his replacement on the house shows this week on the live show Bischoff jokes that Honky tonk man couldn't stand the heat and went back to school. Teaching hockey was is working as a physical education teacher before we went back. WC Ironic is that Honky tonk man a physical education teacher..

"mr meltzer" Discussed on The Playbook

"Dave meltzer c._e._o.'s sports marketing with with entrepreneurs the playbook and i have i shouldn't say an old friend but a dear friend ray anderson the athletic director of arizona arizona state university the sun devils and we're here right in the conference room ready discuss something that i'm most interested in is ray welcome to the playbook but i wanna know the playbook to become in appalachia director. Dave i tell you man <hes> <hes> i didn't invent it. That's for sure the typical route. Is you know through administration you start sometimes as intern turn you wake up through the ladder but kinda in the same department or certainly in the same <hes> flow path <hes> i wasn't that traditionalist league <hes> and so i ended up here <hes> through security of course most mostly through being an agent then being with team being at the league always spend been a lot of time on campus <hes> because we represented coaches and when you're a evaluating <hes> players you're scouting you're evaluating spent time on campus but never with the intent thought that i'd be an athletic director <hes> at all right but you know i always say to kids when they asked me how to be sports sports agent and said you had to develop the skills and gain the knowledge and have the desire because you know if you don't really want it somebody else really. Does you got that blue playing sports but you went to law school. Why did you go to law school. I went to law school because my my my father who passed away early had planned to be a lawyer as a young boy coming up <hes> through nine years old <hes> once he passed away that began came my focused i wanted to be a lawyer didn't didn't really understand what it meant but learned over time through teachers and others who who schooled me about that <hes> and so i went to law school <hes> with the thought that i'd be a lawyer you're not with the thought that i'd be sports agent <hes> or litigator <hes> or certainly not an athletic director <hes> but i went to law school because it was something something that was kind of ingrained in me as a young boy and you went to some significant schools. I was joking around the first time we interviewed years back. I said it's hard hard for me to give this interview because i've been rejected my favorite squander at stanford. I apologize to be here but they rejected me for undergrad in law school. Actually the thought had a chance for law school but then you out do yourself. <hes> going to stand for you go to harvard law school. I was fortunate <hes> and it all started really with the folks when you're in grade school and junior high and high school in my case <hes> had really taken an interest in me personally <hes> and so just weren't we're not gonna let me falter academically academically and always stressed that so <hes> fortunately i was able to get into stanford <hes> in in do well enough academically to actually apply admitted to harvard law school so i've been very lucky very fortunate. <hes> both great institutions and i'm really glad i went to both of what do you think the advantages you know. All my siblings went to harvard penn columbia. But what do you think the true advantages of graduating from harvard law school competitor like two lane it. Is it a long term effect. Or what do you think the number one advantage of going to school like harmony. Well no disrespect to to we all know the top the perception inception <hes> is that if you're able to go to school like that in graduate <hes> then <hes> people give you a significant benefit of the doubt apt to start to start with is just kind of ingrained in so <hes> you go into literally every situation with probably a competitive edge eh <hes> that is <hes> attached to graduating from a place like harvard or yale or princeton or stanford or <hes> or certainly a sister when you're there though because people have a higher expectation you've ever feel that because as as a boss i've hired kids from the ivy leagues and and i allow that same perception to happen and then i have higher expectations but yet there's still twenty four years old. I think somehow you know myron rolle. Remember meiring your favorite clients at rhodes scholar but i forgot i forgot that he's twenty one so although he's the first client i've ever had to say mr meltzer query and asked me questions that we're really deep. I still forgot that he's twenty one and i think you you know there is looking at my siblings who all went into the schools. They got great advantages the start but there's more pressure on them because people were like oh. That's the harvard kid. He's summa okay well. There are some expectations that go along with the privilege of going to a place like that <hes> and that's just part of the and you have to take take that on and so yes when i left harvard law school and i went to my firm initially <hes> law firm in atlanta georgia. I don't think there's any question that folks looked at me and said hey. That's the the harvard guy you expect a little more in terms of the quality of the work and even worse for us. You married a woman named buffy yeah so you go to stanford harvard law school where mary girl named buffy there. Your expectations are like who is this guy gets like preppy be privy to the to the hill exactly so that <hes> but no those are great opportunities to <hes> get higher education at places that <hes> very frankly people will give you <hes> like i say the benefit of the doubt they'll give you a little more <hes> leeway as a matter of fact but it also comes with expectations dictation. I'm glad i had the opportunity to deal with that. I i am as well. Now you go to law from litigator. What skills do you think you learned the most litigating that help you today as an eighty <hes> preparation <hes> in the <hes> the realization that there's just no substitute for just hard work work in preparation <hes> and so and <hes> a lawyer's role particularly litigator where discovery and research and preparation way saying advance of ever getting in front of arbitrator or panel or jury is absolutely the most important thing you do so <hes> that that translates really into everything. I did my business life but certainly here. <hes> preparation is is key. It's it's vital doing due diligence doing your research getting the appropriate rotate input getting ready and then when you make the case <hes> hopefully you're very prepare <hes> and you're more able to deal with surprises or curve balls etc etc so preparation is absolutely forms now on the administrative side like you said the traditional route is to build that administrative experience understand the culture of the institution and build your reputation within. There's a budgetary side sure that you don't really get get her back. I was litigator myself and you know the reason. I wanted to be illiterate. I didn't want to deal with those details. Afterwards right. I wanted sure other kids that do the research for me. I wanted to speak and how did you develop up those skills because budget huge businesses you for you well along the lines. You get a real appreciation for accounting and finance and law school. You take an accounting course you. You should <hes> part of what i did <hes> to advance my opportunity is at i actually studied financing at one point. I had a series twenty two. I think it was was a license from that. I got back in massachusetts underachiever by taking additional courses and financing in management and investments <hes> but the real trick is to know that you come into place <hes> and you know what you don't know <hes> which means you then look to your finance folks in your internal accountants. <hes> can you give those folks <hes> a lot of responsibility and a lot of runway <hes> to do it right. Keep you informed and then you delegate to people people with the appropriate expertise but never ever just completely delegating in saying you just do it. I'm not interested. I'm always interested in being being briefed <hes> and kept in the loop so when the final decisions are made i'm all over them but in terms of the expertise <hes> in the nuances of finances is an accounting and budget etc leave to the experts are part of my team and you do really great job including one of your latest hires right yet. You hired a friend someone that you had to work with at the n._f._l. Frank came came with ms our chief financial officer for sun devil athletics <hes> <hes> in my years at the n._f._l. Running football operations he was the finance budget leader for my unit for eight years so i certainly we went back to <hes> someone that i knew and trusted <hes> who could come in here and culturally we were seeing. He knew what my expectations were. He could come in here and and get up to speed very quickly on what goes on in a athletic <hes> budget in finance arena not very different very frankly and what goes on at the n._f._l. Pro level so you you go and get really good people around you then you delegate to them. Let them do their job and you know what you you got a chance to be in pretty good. How old were you when i look at you. I think of radical humility and it's something that i had do do my career in my thirties. When i retired tired in was an idiot and didn't humbly tell you right now. I wasn't radically humble so i wrote those two words on my nightstand and i said from today on i'm gonna wake up and pray to god for ten and people can help because that's the way that humility starts for you with all the pride agree harvard stanford in buffy all the pedigree you have you you know to understand which took me later on in life to understand that if i elevate others i elevate myself and lee had this great saying be kind to your future self and it seems to me from her to frank and others around you that you understood that much younger than i did. Where where did the humility come from mm-hmm who helped inspire you well first of all thank you for the compliment radical humility and <hes> album believer that <hes> you are at your best when when you have the best around you in terms of teammates and support group and if you have that you got a chance to be wildly successful because you're not just depending on and yourself you're depending on a team and i learned that early on in that started very frankly with my <hes> freshman high school coach guy named lloyd parks and <hes> who actually when we showed up as real cocky junior hockey to beat everybody and football baseball basketball we come into high school in our football coaches lloyd loyd parks and who is a marine who landed on iwo jima and survived that war and then ended up being coming back and being a meal military marine instruction officer so when we showed up there was lloyd parks all six two of them you know i shaved in grizzled <hes> and wiggins it was a very good example coaches paul wiggins we showed up and he made sure that across the board we understood. You're only as good as all of you. Are there are no stars it is about team and he really drove who've that in us and in me <hes> and i give coach parks and more credit than anybody in my life or driving home that you'd better be humble. <hes> and you better be appreciative of everyone around you because without them. You know what you will die. You will not be successful in that that that drove it it from then on. I was always about okay. What's my team. Look like <hes> everyone's gotta roll <hes> in success <hes> and that's kind of been my marching orders <hes> <hes> and that's why i very frankly i've had some success because it's about the team delegating not micromanaging <hes> and then giving everybody when when it is appropriate. Give everybody the risk but also give everybody the we're awards and what do you in that mary oxy. What do you instill empower to allow them to make decisions. We're not micro. Managers would values that you you know for me. I understand par people value so they can make their own decision. Based on the values is that we have as a collective. What values are the ones that you look at. When you're empowering your associates employees etc the thing we say about around here all the time david music culture is just not important culturally is everything <hes> so we <hes> <hes> we we we said in advance a culture of <hes> teamwork <hes> no selfishness <hes> think through unintended consequences for the good of the group not just for the self <hes> and then core values like you know what <hes> family really does come first <hes> and work life balance really is important <hes> and <hes> communication education and very honest genuine consistent communication is really critical to our way forward and those are really our core core values and we just tried to instill <hes> and then live those not just talking but living by example up and down our chain of command ed at one of the things i noticed different here. I'm blessed to have gone to tons of universities and blessed with friendships like yours but the one thing that stood out when i walk through this office was the one word i don't see often. I see integrity. I see commitment. I see consistency right. I see pursuit any wooden type of of of success s. triangle but very rarely do. I see straight out on the wall graduation because i like to me i went to occidental college because it's the only place to let me play football football but my mom loved it because when i was recruited by saying he goes eight and other places and they talked about their graduation rate with players and my mom went to occidental coach we'd off at at the time very winning coach league said she said well how many players graduate he said seventy percent and she said only seventy percent and he said no no. I'm sorry seventy percent go on to graduate school school. I'm sorry everyone graduates right. That's the feeling and energy expectation i get from.

Chinese Our safety, tech giant ball way. our control Do's and of analysis the government, townhall our dot ability com. to liberate, the government to be strong to protect Stuck us in traffic? is written We've into got this the structure answer. the separation of powers and everything in the constitution. Let me then go to the two paragraphs that end section one of article three, the president, shall at stated times, receive for his services a compensation, which on either be increased. Nor diminished during the period for which he has been elected, and he shall not receive within that period any other emolument from the United States for any of them before he ended on the execution of his office. He shall take the following oath or affirmation, quote, I do solemnly swear or affirm that I will faithfully execute. The office of president of the United States, and will, to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the constitution of the United States. I think these are both important clauses. Dr arnn. Well. That, that means the president can't be the, the first thing, the emoluments clause means the president can't be holding to some other power right political powers. What it's talking about, you know, there's a controversy about Trump because Trump's makes a lot of money, and sometimes they're public political events in the Trump hotel in DC, and protect foreigners at the Trump hotel may pay the Trump company money. Yeah. And that's, that's not different in principle from the fact that, you know, presidents put their stuff, and, you know, politicians often put their stuff in a blind trust. And that means it's still keeps making money and, and so the, the judgment that has to be made by the people ultimately is are the opponents of Trump. Correct that places him in a conflict of interest. And that's what the and causes is meant to stop. And so my own belief is it's a legitimate question. And the answer is no, it doesn't. Well put. And, and so, so there's that now the second thing, the oath everybody who serves under the authority of the American government down to the listed man in the in the army navy and marines, and air force. They have to take an oath. It said that they have to take an oath, the one for the president is the only one prescribed for Begum in the constitution. That's what I think is important. Yup. Yeah. And it's and, and, you know, if you wanna if you look at the first inaugural address of ABRAHAM LINCOLN, you know, one of the greatest utterances ever, it's a beautiful if different from the second inaugural, which is a religious political poem. Very beautiful. I is an argument and in this argument, he starts with his oath. I'm gonna take an to uphold the constitution the United States. And so, I. Don't find session written in the document. And this band. Union is a very big thing. And I am going to stop it. And the first way I'm gonna stop. It is by this speech. I am up healing not to do this thing. The patriot graves and her Soanes America. Call out. That's paraphrase is not quite accurate. Call out and yesterday I was asked by friend mutual friend of ours. To tell me about her, though, he's younger than we are. And, and the famous person. I said, yeah, well, you know, in Lincoln's day light and heat were scarce and light at night was very scarce, but there was a fire Verney, and so people gathered around the heart and the sounds in front of it to stay warm and be able to see they can do a lot of his reading by Firelight. And so that, that, that's it was a center of the gathering of the family, and that means that we are related to each other. You know, Churchill Lincoln, and so the oath is to keep the family together. That's it. That's it. That's how.

"Of talk to Mr. Brad Meltzer. Especially on book TV I've been watching that for a long time. And I I think it's a great service. America's history is the foundation of what we have to all know, we learn from our mistakes, but up. Desk make any movies or documentaries from the books. He's written. My family was involved in a nicer the golden circle. Oh, let's talk about. Let's talk about the nights the golden circle. So okay. Let's talk about it. So thank you. Don. Thanks. I appreciate that. You're a man of history, which I appreciate the the golden circle when the civil war happens, and and the south was falling. There was the civil war goal. The confederate goal was put on a train and the train was headed out of town. And the idea was we're gonna put all our money. We lost we're done. We'll put the money on the train and on the school train. We'll we'll send the money south. And basically, we're going to hide the money, and the implication is that one day when it's ready to south will rise again. And the guardians of that were supposedly the knights of the golden circle now actually came from a group during the civil war that wanted to have was so angry with slavery being disrupted that they wanted to form their own golden circle, an area wish slavery would be legal. That's where it really came from. That was the start of it. But what eventually evolved into in in the kind of story of history as they were supposedly the guardians of the civil war gold, and the confederate gold, the great part of the story and the great mystery, which we dealt with undecoded was the money. The gold never got there. Disappear forever to this day. Nobody knows where it is. In fact, as a story that's breaking right now. Of some guys with thought they found it and government operatives basically, they think took it out from under their hands. I'm actually looking into that story right now because it's a good one. But the nice the golden circle was supposedly they had these sentinels who guarded the gold. They supposedly put marks on trees told you where it was. Needless to say. I thought that would be a really good group to deal with in a book, and when you read the fifth assassin, and you read the president's shadow the president's shadow deals completely with the night's golden circle, and what they're really up to now because to me. If George Washington's Spiring, the coloring still exists to this very day. Then doesn't it make sense that the knights of the golden circle still exists to this very day? Three tweets you cover some of this earlier, but regarding the culpa ring novel, this is from Sean says when will we get another novel? Not that I'm impatient. Okay. Maybe a little I am. Yeah. I'm slow. I admit I am slow when it comes to writing the thrillers not because of any interest or anything else, but for twenty years now, I can just go two years at a time. I know that there are people who are great and go every year and God bless them. They put out a book every year, if I did them, they will be garbage. And God bless the men and women who can do it. They're great at it. But to me the research as you can tell I hope matters so much to me, and I'd like spending six more months on it doing that research. So the next thriller is a Nolan's book, I'm working on it. Now, the the next book that comes out is the first conspiracy. The secret plot to kill George. Washington comes out in January January eighth. And I am Billie Jean King comes out right after that. But again, film and movie we are working on it. I just actually spoke with someone who we've been working with the hard part of making a movie and we've option and sold many of the books to movies, but it's just really hard to make it happen. Especially in this day where superheroes. What you've seen the movies? There's when was the last time you saw John Grisham movie. What was the last time? You saw David ball duchy movie. Mary Higgins Clark movie. Those are have really moved more to television as you see with my friend, Michael Connelly doing the great Bosh series. Those things are not in movies anymore thrillers are not in movies anymore. If you don't have special effects and a Cape, you're not gonna see it in a movie. So those of us who love this world and loved the, Sean Laura. Are really trying to find great partners who will do that kind of long form storytelling in this tweet from Ian says who are your biggest influences when it comes to writing in particular comic books that you've worked on? Yeah. The comic books, and they are my biggest writing influences. They really are. I love my favorite writer of all time bar. Nobody is Alan more. Alan Moore's is British writer who wrote watchmen Raviv vendetta and many other things. But watchmen is to me the pinnacle of what any book can accomplish is the book I used to reread it every single year. I read watchmen every single year. I just actually finished my reading I hadn't read in about three years. And I just finished it a couple of months ago. It's a one book I can go back to reread it every time. I love Neil Gaiman. I love Brian Ben this. I love. Tom king and what he's doing on my friends like Jeff John's or you I can name name them. Mark Miller was doing wonderful things. Jayson aaron. Who I think are all incredible writers and even more artists that are out there. I think my college roommate is Judd Winick is one of the great writers of used to do comic books and now does kids books like hi low, which I love my kids love about a little robot who just is heart warming as moving as anything, you're gonna read. So I think that there are great stories out there. I just love hero stories. I do and I think, you know, Stanley recently passed away. And the reason I love these stories is not that I love characters aware there under on the outside of their pants. What I love about these stories, and what I love about Stanley Jerry Siegel. And Joe Shuster created superman is those stories gave me a foundation to live by a moral foundation. They taught me. They gave me the pillars of my senses of right and wrong. And what I loved is that those characters were being good because it's good to be good. That's why we should be good. That is an incredibly powerful important lesson that we've lost sight of being good for the sake of it. What what we've learned over the years. We've learned how to fight we learned that from comics that taught, you know, fighting and punch each other. We're great at that as a culture. But if you're just fighting for yourself, where you're fighting for politics, you're fighting because you're a corporation, and you want more attention or you're fighting for something like that. You are ready lost as far as I'm concerned, we need to get back to that idea of just being good and kind for no other reason than it's right? And what I love about those lessons that comics give us is that we can still use that lesson every day. If I know it's crazy. But if you lived your life like superman, if you lived your life like Batman that is a good thing in Batman. What I what inspires me about them as everyday he knows he's gonna fail. He's Batman because he wants to stop crime all crime from existing because his parents were killed. He's never gonna do it. He's never gonna stop all crime. He's never gonna do. The missionary starts with everyday. He'll never accomplish it. But tomorrow he's going to try again. Next thing he's going to try again to and that lesson of persistence is a powerful beautiful one Superman's lesson of of truth Justice and the American way those on those days when I say I'm going to run for president. And I think I'm right because we look around today. You're like my gosh, anyone could be it. I think I know what my motto be truth Justice and the American way that is one hundred percent what I would run on. That is what we're missing today, truth and Justice and the American way, and those lessons came to me when I was a kid like the best things we learn when their kid there's still just as valuable today would you run for office? I mean, listen, I stay in my world of fiction, but trust me there are moments where I get just as bad as anyone else out there and says needs someone needs to step forward and do better. That's the only way the world ever changes. So what do you think of the president? You know, I do not believe I'm gonna I'm gonna not to just kind of switch the subject, but I just don't believe in in. It's easy for us to sit here and say, why did you do this do that? And there are some things that that's just unfair to do. There are other things that I look at it. And I go, you know, what you can't you can't take our greatest enemies and be nice to them than you are to our own people. You can't those are the things that you see right now, you're starting to see this. We talked about before. But the Republicans and Democrats are finally starting to realize one thing they agree on is you gotta treat Americans better. And listen, I'll be the first ones to say it like you you got to go to not going them. When you start going those people you're on the wrong side of history. Okay. That is we all of us at some point in time somewhere in this country trace back to someone who came from elsewhere. You know, the great hero of all of us. Right. Take superman himself is truly an immigrant from another planet at comes down here. He becomes a journalist. Right. He's like in that. He's like almost the embodiment of what Donald Trump hates the most. He's an immigrant, and he's a journalist. That's what Clark Kent and superman are together. But what's amazing to me is when you whether it's you anywhere at any point in history. When you start generalizing about an entire group of people about an entire religion about an entire culture. Doing it wrong. Doing it wrong. Let's go to kit here in Washington DC good afternoon kit. Hello. One more time for kit. Okay. We'll go to Franklin in Yonkers New York. New York represents. Hi there. Good afternoon. Yes. Mr. Meltzer before my question. I just want her just what you were just saying about the importance of of being a hero and such. And I just really think that it's vital for especially Prevert, privileged white males like myself and yourself we have to be more honest about racism in this country. For example, everyone is talking about on the news about George George Hw Bush in the sixties, he was a horrible racist. There's an article called Bush and the blacks by Jefferson Morley that was in the New York review of books in one thousand nine hundred ninety two Bush was against the Civil Rights Act. He was against blacks having the right to eat in restaurants and hotels. There's about ten. Yeah. No. Let's talk about this is this is a good one. Because let's talk about this. I was actually reading just about that. And the mazing thing is is you're right about that. George Bush did run against that act. He did. The amazing part is when he got into congress. He voted the opposite way to the consternation of everyone in Texas at the time who was like you bastard, you said you were going to do something about that. And he actually did the right thing. And I can't I can't possibly with a straight face sit here and say, my gosh that takes away everything else that was said and done, and everyone is a Saint and everyone does the right thing..

"You're like I read that person in the beginning. They were good in the beginning. But now, they're kind of like, whatever, you know. What's going to happen? They're they're dot by connect the dots. You know, why that happens because the authors board to authors been writing that character for twenty years, and they're bored. And I when I started writing I remember I said, I never want to be that person. Never wanna be that author who feels like man, I'm bored. I did it so much. I don't wanna do against every book I've written. I've been like I try to find that thing that I've never done before. And I try it there. It's why Nolan this book, I was can I find this this this character that I just don't trust? What do you do with that? When you do in your heroes, the most dangerous character and the whole book can I pull that off? I don't know. Let's see. And to me. That's what that's what makes me feel like it's going to be interesting to me when you're reading a good book, and you feel like it's just leaving the station like a train, that's barreling. I'll stations because the reader is feeling that because the writer loves what they're doing. They know there's a passionate the x factor is the writer love what they're doing. And to me. That's what you gotta have every book you do if you don't feel like that. Don't start the book. Hey vic. Thanks for joining us. San Bruno California, you're next good afternoon. Yes. Thank you. Good afternoon. Mr. meltzer's been talking about the question. Why who benefits and I I wondered if he ever thought about taking on a subject and a lot of people seem to stay away from and that's the JFK assassination. Yeah. No, listen. You just know that that's my number one of all the great stories. We actually did tackle it. I became so I'm so obsessed with it that we put it in our decoded book will be counted down the ten top conspiracy theories. The thing that's great about the J F K one is it has the best stories. It also has the craziest stories, and I remember when I first got into doing this. That was the first conspiracy theory ever heard. But I remember when I talked about miss Sherman who was life got saved when we help find her a kidney. But the reason why she got me turned onto history is I was in eleventh grade and she brought in a big TV big monitor on a rolling cart. And when you're in high school and the rolling car comes in with the TV, you know, that's the best day of all why because you're going to see a movie and the movie came in and the movie she put on for us. Was JFK conspiracy movie? And it wasn't one of those cookie crazy ones that says everyone was trying to kill him. And they were all there from every side. But it was one of those ones that asked the actual true logical questions that deserve to be asked to this very day. Which is how does Jack ruby get through an entire police station full of cops and no one stops him. What is Lee Harvey Oswald doing in Russia for all those years as someone who served in the military, and no one knows anything about him. There's the questions even with the release of the documents last year this past year. There's still unanswered questions. Those are logical good fair questions to be asked in why they took Lee Harvey Oswald in a public setting, right? Why walking in parade him through where people had access to them. They make. No, there's things that just you know, I think that many of these things are like the supreme court definition of pornography. Which is you know, when you see we know when something just smells wrong, we just do. But what's great about the JFK story is when you really dig some of the things have completely unanswerable questions and deserve to be asked. And some are actually just based on the lies that have been bred into us Oliver Stone when he did the JFK movie did one of the great disservices to history because at the time we didn't have the internet was we didn't see interviews with with rectors back them. But he actually says at the time that he was so mad. At the Warren commission that he wanted his movie to be response to it. So we added characters and facts and details that weren't even true. And the average person ever many millions of people saw that movie took that movie as true going. Oh my gosh. Wait a minute. There's an audiotape that has a third shot on it. Where'd that shot? Come from our four-shot honored or an where did that come from in the movie, it says in JFK movie, it says that no one has ever been able to recreate the shot that Lee Harvey Oswald took from the top of the book depository? I remember when I was a kid watching that movie I thought, oh, and he couldn't have done it. Because no one's been able to recreate the shot. It's too hard. It's too far. It's impossible to do. There's the answer. Just logic tells you if no one can recreate it have you been to Dallas I've been to Dallas. Here's the problem with that story. I went to Dallas it's not that far. It's actually a really easy shot. In fact, what they didn't tell you in JFK is tons of people have recreated that shot marine asked marine has recreated that shot. In fact, the marines. To be a sharpshooter has to make a shot like that even further away. But we watch the movie, and I'll tell you no one's made that shop. It's just not true in next year's live. The first Sunday of every month on she's spent to book TV this is an encore presentation not live, no calls place. This is from Phoenix as an Email that is directly related. This viewer is in the eleventh grade huge history buff as a history buff. I care a lot about history. I what can we do to make history to give it to make it exciting to a new generation? And Secondly, how do we change the education k through twelve with regard to history? Yeah. That's a good question. That's mean eleventh grade that kid is going to be he or she is going to be sitting here in Phoenix. So kid from Phoenix. Make sure you mentioned me on your interview. When Stephen I are long dead or where old and you're not going to call in that day. Be like I'm calling from Bogor atone. So by the way that job just killed in Boca kill crushed in Boca. But he has a really vital question. I went to the history department at the university of Michigan. Which is where I majored in history. So what's the biggest problem you're facing today? I said the biggest problem that they were facing in the history departments around the country is when I was a kid. I wanted to be a history major, you know, my parents said, okay. You like history. Go do it the number one problem. They're facing is that parents across the country right now when their kids says that they want to be a history major the parent says them, you're gonna make no money don't do it and all across many of these liberal arts ideas, whether it's sociology whether it's history. Whether it's anything else you're seeing over and over again parents interfere insane. You're not gonna make money. And so they're just having trouble. The departments are getting decimated because they can't get the funding. They can't get the interesting the kids to sign up. And so when you when you when you have less kids, you get less funding, less funding, less faculty. And then we start losing it. That's a disaster. So we have to change that you just need to do that. So I think the first way start is like parents out there. Stop telling your kids that it can make money at history. That's it. I think I've solved the problem. I think we're done. But all kidding aside. The thing the thing that he asks the first is the more important question, which is how do you make an interesting I will say that I saw this at the national book festival this past year, Brian cells, Nick gave this incredible speech and Brian sales night for those Sonos. The children's book illustrator, he's the new illustrator on the Harry Potter books. He's who they hire to redo all the covers for the Harry Potter books when they did the re release and Brian got up there and gave this incredible speech. And he said know, he he said, I never read Harry Potter. He said. He read it recently. And when he read it he was struck by that idea that Harry and Ron her Miami. They were faced with this horrible kind of dictator who was trying to take power in anyone who spoke against him. He would attack and anyone who who dare challenged him. He would attack and he would use the actual system of government in the magical world he seized power in there. He got the ministry of magic. He grabbed the power of the entire reason. It's just fight from the outside. But he grabbed power from the inside and put his thumb down and anyone who spoke against him. He would come down with totalitarian attack. But these kids realize that the adults weren't going to save them. Adults were never going to save them. If you wanted to see change happen the kids needed to do it themselves. And he he didn't have to mention he didn't mention gun control him mentioned what happened in Florida or anywhere else in Vegas or anywhere else. But he said, but when you look these kids. That are out there today. Like this eleven th grader who just wrote to us. They have been raised on Harry Potter. They have been armed with Harry Potter since they were five years old. They have learned that when you see something like that someone in power who's abusing it that you must rise up because the system won't save itself. You have to save everybody. And he's like, and that's how you're gonna get freedom back. And that's you're going to get power back hit home for me. And he didn't have to say the name Donald Trump or anyone else on the democratic side. Whatever it was everyone. It was rousing. And I think at the answer to that eleventh graders problem is at eleventh grader as it always should be. And when you have a kid and eleventh grade Hussein how do I make extra more interesting? He's going to write the interesting book that's going to bring people back. She's gonna write the incredible lecture. That's going to bring people back. We will hear from that kit. Again, another question from our colleague, Ben O'Connell who love your book, inner circle, president Orson Wallace and the role of Saint Elizabeth's. Yeah. This is a good one. So Orson Wallace is the is the. Is hidden as someone who loves mysteries and who loves Viglen through things to find that golden nugget. I have hidden more hidden things in my books and anyone will ever find. Yeah. Just to start from book one the villain in book one who gets arrested you actually find out what happened to them. If you are really close reading you read book two it's on one page in one sense..

"That's why I also get the thrill of pot plots from so reading about George Washington gives me the fact that he wrote while I'm researching a children's book called I IM, George Washington. I find out that he used to write in invisible ink, and he's to write between the lines of letters between those lines. That's we get the freeze read between the lines Easter right in between the lines. And I wrote in in the kids book, I was like we gotta put that in there. And they were like you can't put it in there. I'm I get so cool. And then I'm reading the book with my son. And he's like, wait. He's like, George Washington invisible ink. That's so cool. I'm like, I know isn't cool. And so I take these nonfiction ideas that are for the adult books, and I use them in the kids books. We do I use them in the nonfiction books. We do and you are a prolific tweeter. I am. Yes. I'm on Twitter all the time. Not I it's a distraction. I take for myself during the day. My Twitter account is is there. So a couple of tweets that were directed you. This is from Sylvia who says what is one subject that? You have not written about that. You would love to put on paper. Even if just for yourself or for your family. We knows me these people on Twitter Nomi, they get in my brain. I think one day I want to write about my mom and dad, that's the one. I want to read about what were they like? So my mother they both passed away the rest in peace. My mom. When borders were still around and chambers was around the head of sales aboard guess your book sell more than anywhere else. Straight sales not even per capita. And I was like. New York City a million people in one place. No, I said Washington DC era thriller sent me see note, the number one place where my book sold was the Boca Raton, Florida borders, one mile from the furniture store where my mother used to work. That means my mother single handedly beat eight million New Yorkers like that was her power. And my dad was no different. My dad used to go into the local Barnes and noble in the books and books, and he'd be like. Where's Brad milkey new book? He's my favorite author in the entire world. I'm his biggest fan. Mr meltzer. We know. He's your son. We know and and our marketing plan when I started out with very simple, we're gonna unleash these two people my mother and father on the planet, and they'll do the job and God bless them. They did when they died I found in their clean out their apartment there were stacks of my books in their closet. They bought them all like they were buying them. Single. Like, our our numbers in Florida. We had skyrocketed because my parenting secretly buying them. And they didn't have a lot of money, but they were still buying those books. And so I I love to write about them. And those stories I tell you about them. Those stories or bitchy worries I know because I wrote their obituaries, but but what they do is those stories show. They're not about their sales of books that are billionaires sell books. It's about their love for me. And everything I am today. My sense of humor might confidence. Anything I am is about that love that. My parents always showered on me another tweet this is from Kathy Anderson. Can I ask just two things first? When will we see no again and second one will we see a Brad Meltzer movie. Yeah. So I want Nola Brown, the sequel to the escape artist is what I'm working on right now that is the next book that's coming in creativity. We'll talk about the other books that are coming but Knowle's coming back Nolan's acre back, so we escape artists just down paperback. So it's perfect timing for the holidays, and then the second question a movie, oh, we're working on that too. Not as far along as I wish we were. But the next TV project that we're doing is our I am books. We're doing a PBS TV show. And let's talk about those a moment. So a number of years ago. I was tired of my own kids. Looking at reality TV show stars and people who are famous for being famous and and loud mouth athletes. And I thought I have so many better heroes for them. And we started with I am Amelia Earhart. And I am ABRAHAM LINCOLN. We started with them. Because if I if I tell my daughter that Amelia Earhart, flew across the Atlantic Ocean. She's like big deal, dad. Everyone flies across the Atlantic these days, but if I tell my daughter, and there's Neil Armstrong. But if I tell my daughter that Amelia Earhart, and this is true when she was seven years old. She built a homemade rollercoaster in her backyard. And she came flying down the side went flying through the air as a seven year old my daughter's like, oh, that's interesting. So we started with unfamiliar heart. I may ham Lincoln we've done. I am Rosa Parks. I'm Albert Einstein. Jackie Robinson for my son loves sports. I was like, you know, what you want to sports hero. Here's I'm Jackie Robinson. This is what a real athlete hero looks like it's not about scoring points. It's about making change in people's lives. And then we did I am Lucille ball because I wanted my daughter to have a female entertainment hero wasn't just famous for being thin and pretty Lucy. Stephanie idea it's not just okay to be different spectacular to be different. Let's do just one little tease because coming up in about an hour video with you and Barbara Bush give it away but give the audience. You were saying just for this Barbara Bush, and I our favorite scene is the Lucy chocolate conveyor belt scene where she's eating all the chocolates. And I won't give it away. But if you have that scene in your head, just get ready. I'll say that. And then we did I'm Helen Keller where when she goes blind. We put the pages black in the book, and they say, this is my name. My name's Helen report. Real braille in the book just feel these dots name, what's your name and kids can clad watch my seventeen year old kid closes is and feel the dots. Even though the books for five year olds and ten year olds. But watching and trying to see through someone else's is investing a book can do right? But something amazing happened as Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton Rabin each other's heads in the election two years ago in November is two of our books took off more than any others. They were I am George Washington and Martin Luther King junior. And what was amazing about it? Is it wasn't a democrat or Republican thing? But it was that parents and grandparents out they're tired of turn on the TV and seeing politicians what they wanted to show their kids were leaders. We all know, there's a huge difference between a politician and a leader. And then we're using our books to fight back with them. I am Martin Luther King junior. I am George Washington giving their grandkids and their kids their nieces and nephews these books and saying here's what a real American leader looks like and we've done gone the we've done Harriet Tubman. The newest books. We just did is Neil Armstrong because look at. I mean look at where the world is today. Right. Neil Armstrong again, like George H W Bush never used the word. I use the word. We we did this. We accomplished it. He would say that about the space program. He would say that he wasn't talking about just the astronauts. He met the scientists he meant the people who were mathematicians the people who showed his spacesuit together. And right now as a culture, we favor those who whether on Twitter Facebook, and who else are really good at getting attention for themselves beat their chest and say look at me, look at me the loud us out there. So we reward I'm tired of that. I I wanna go back to those times of Neil Armstrong. Remember when humility was great American value. It should be again. And I think it's no surprise at the two big biographies this year where Neil Armstrong and mister Rogers people who were humble that great thing. I wanna teach my kids to be hung. Humble again. And I also want to teach my kids the value of hard work, not fame. Neil Armstrong when he was a little kid. He's still his big dream was to climb the silver maple tree in his backyard. And when you climb a tree, it's like doing a puzzle. Steve, right. It's like, you gotta grab this branch. And in that branch thing you gotta shimmy up that way. And you got to engineer you gotta figure out an engineer a solution and one day, Neil Armstrong. He's a little boy. I think he's eleven years old. He's climbing this maple tree. And he grabs a dead branch and the branch snaps and he falls to the ground gets a wind knocked out of him. He's sister comes running says, I'm gonna go get mom, but the most important thing he does and the more. I read new I am the alarm strong. And what I wrote for my kids most important thing. He does is he gets back up again. And he becomes of course, he starts saving money to get his pilot's license. He wants tweet planes and real planes. He gets his pilot's license. He's so young before his driver's license. Then he becomes a test pilot. Of course becomes an astronaut. He takes that greatly thr- all mankind. But the lesson in the book, and I am Nealon strong is that you don't get to take all those thousands that giant leap until you. Take those thousands of smaller steps before it. That's the lesson. We need to teach our kids at being humble and being hard working is that's what we need to celebrate in the world today. That's what this entire IM series is about. And then we, of course are doing. I am Billie. Jean king? We dime. Sonia sorta my your our first Latina hero just came out. So Neil Armstrong just came out. And so were just come out. And then when you and I am Billie Jean King in February. You have three children what are their ages? So I have three kids from seventeen down to ten. My middle one is thirteen and they're the reasons for these books, they gave me an entire whole lines right about because I felt like I wanted to leave them. We all have a legacy. And I love the fiction books, of course, that's the that's the house I built with my own hands. But for me, my greatest legacy. I know forever will not be about writing. It will be my children. And I wanted them to have heroes. They can look up to a specially in today's times where we're starving for heroes. Again, whatever your politics are which is starving for them. We need them we need better heroes right now. But there there they are there. You just got to find them and teach your kids where they are. And I love that people take our I am books and they build libraries of real heroes for their kids and their grandkids or nieces their nephews. I love that this holiday season or even say this past Halloween, all these people these kids, write me, letters, say dear Brad and mom's write letters. This is the first year. My daughter Princess this year, thanks to your books. She went as Amelia Earhart. They went his Albert Einstein. One is Rosa Parks. Most narcissistic moment I can never -ticipant that I'm gonna. Be responsible for someone's Halloween costume. But thanks to Chris Elliott are amazing artists. Kids fall in love with these characters. He's the superstar of the show, and he has a style that's a little bit..

"mr meltzer" Discussed on Short Story Long

"Dedicated to the sport to this one thing and you don't plan for what's next and it's just like, you don't even know how to transition to what's next because your whole life was football. Your whole life was skateboarding. And so how did you make that transition? I'm guessing you see that a lot. Yeah. So here's the issue in Ray Anderson who's the athletic director is you taught me this don't limit your point of entry. The thing is your dream in your passion can be skateboarding. But if all you want to do is be a skateboarder, like actually a professional skateboarder you're limiting your point of entry. There's so many different things you can do with your passion beyond beyond just jumping on board and making you can always jump on board. I can always play flag football still today fifty. I can coach it, I could do, but the truth is it's still my passion. I monetize it in a different way. So I encourage people don't limit your point of entry because even as a sports agent was, which was my next venture that I didn't limit my point of entry and I ended up being the seal of the most notable sports agency in the world, and this weird track which will go through because my next step after getting running over was after that season going to my older brother who's doing his residency at UCLA in the hospital because I wanted to be a doctor. How could. Could you just. I wanna fix my mom's line. Right, okay. So I, I was humbled by it and you know what? Maybe my mom knows best. Yep. So I better. I'm good student and I, I better just fall in line with my siblings and I got scared, but here's what the coolest thing on. My oldest brother did for me, I went over and I looked around and he saw in my face. This wasn't for me and he's like, what's the matter? I'm like, I, he'd hospitals. Yeah. And he's like, Devi premed. You can't be a doctor without being in a hospital. What are you talking about? I'm be a sports doctor. I'll be on the sidelines. Yeah, you know, I'm not going to be in a hospital. He goes great piece of advice. Change my life. David be more interested than interesting. Right. And I started to think about that like, wow, I don't know anything about being a doctor. And the reason I say that is so many kids come up to me and say, Mr. Meltzer I wanna be a sports agent and I think the myself, you're eighteen years old just like I was. What do you know about being a sports agent here? Have you been more interested than interesting, and I see so many people in life the they think they know what the what and they really haven't even figured that out, let alone the why even to get to the, how. It's so true. Yeah, I just think that like I've seen. So many young people like you just and I don't know. We're taught like dream big. What do you wanna be when you go up dream dream dream? And it's like there's part of that. That's good, but I feel like there's a lot of people that are so dead set on what they're going to be. Like you said, they don't even quite understand what that even means like how what it really it takes to become that. And then they don't have any way to adjust or change course or whatever. And they end up running into the ground and then having to completely change careers or pass. And then they end up being miserable doing that. And hopefully they can dig out of that if possible. But if not, you just feel like I got robbed as a sham and it's just like the need to be that heartbreaking will think about in a spiritual sense. And if you have a limited point of entry, you're gonna have a limited point of exit. Yeah. So you end up in a cubbyhole working nine to five? Yeah, right. A lot of times. And you also limiting your chances and for whatever reason, maybe because we grew up in Akron. In so many things in Ohio itself of the big dreamers. And you know the John glands and the Jack Nicklaus's all the great history that we have in Ohio and just the energy of Ohio was more on that..
