Nintendo Release Gaps and the Nintendo Gigaleak
"Hello and welcome to Nintendo voice chat I'd Jen's Nintendo podcast this week the week of July thirtieth. Today, we'll be talking about the huge release gasoline intendo bestselling games. The NINTENDO GIG leak ends a lot more I'm your host and this week I'm joined by Friday Tato. Guy Is here to join the show. Perfect. Let's he delivering today. something I might be able to show next week actually. Okay. Cool. Awesome. Okay to do that, build it. Now, I'm thinking of what it could be. A spoiler and I'm also joined today by pair. Snyder. And Zach Ryan. Hello I didn't see their. Her. How many chapters to get through your book while waiting for me together Brooke Myers retired who was supposedly. So yeah, that's true too I. Don't know how to read it. Did you get to the part where the skeleton is link yes. Very. Can, be time. Ns. Skeleton. Mr. Historic Also, have skeletons Brian I. Not. Christ. Disagree agree to disagree that's fine we can agree to disagree. But you can't agree on is that there's nothing coming out for the rest of the year from Nintendo at least as far as we now. Agree on that. Disagree. Last week we got a mini direct, but we still don't know anything that is coming from Nintendo specifically for the rest of this year pair went ahead and put together a really awesome lists. You might of seen it if you follow his twitter about. that. We haven't seen in wild that might be coming I. Say my I mean, this is super speculative. We really don't know but I thought it'd be interesting to go over this list of games to see how many years it's been since we've gotten a new installment of games. Probably. Doesn't say that we're the ones. It's been the longest since we've seen but maybe Now see that's what I was trying to get a I was trying to figure out. All right. Is there a certain cadence and I haven't done this in the past to look at whether there's a certain cadence when intendo renews these Games they there is right Nintendo in order to keep keep the franchises going they. They send life signs out but that doesn't necessarily mean a new installment in May, mean a character inclusion in smash or you know like putting NFC or track in Nintendo land stuff like that. So I don't I don't know how helpful it is to to actually predict what is going to come out and what will come out because like at first I was like. The Games that sell the most are the games that Nintendo puts on a schedule to be renewed at least every four years, and then you go while hold on his animal crossing sold forty million or something at the series, and we have to wait eight years eight years animals. New Leaf right right. But they did have a mobile released. So you know they kind of unhappy designer everyone loved happy. Home Design. Side. So happy home designer. Dave count. Twenty thirteen. They count in the way that they're both animal crossing products. That's definitely fall under the same umbrella. Look. Do. You want to talk about the ones that haven't been renewed in a long time or you know maybe our guest is like I. Think Everybody here has the list in front of them but like our guesses what we think will be revisited next. Yes. Yes, let let's really quickly recap in the last five years. We've gotten paper. Mario Animal. Crossing we've gotten to poke them on like we always get new pok months, Yoshi Lewis Mansion, fire emblem, and some of these like had big gaps. It had been kind of a year since we had another Louisi- mansion it had been. There all been short, really short gaps between these games like Mario and Zelda and Mario Party like they're not long gaps within the games that we haven't seen in the past ten years. They always have really long gaps. It seems. Yeah, I mean the nets Roy yeah. There's a lot of metro happening though you know there was there was a brief period there with with prime. Prime two prime three. Metro Fusion Metro Observer Mission. The Ball Three D. S. and. There's a lot of metro I feel like in a very short timeframe, and then now it's just been forever since we've seen a metro. A new one right we got Simmons returns overseas so. We're looking at kind of they are shortening the gap between with remakes and that's what happened with link's awakening obviously to right we got link's awakening to take the spot in between you know the mixed breath of the wild, the last one, and certainly that happened with metro to with Simas returns and the other game that shall not be named.
Where Coders Code
"Is that ideal kind of work to do remotely? Even my own experience with self isolation, as he realized that I've been doing exactly that for a number of years so when you talk to Coders, how many of them preferred this work method? HOW POPULAR HAS IT become? Well. It's very popular, and that's because coders love working from home, the vast majority of coders. If they were given the choice, they would say yes. I would work from home all the time. And the reason why is because it just gives them a quiet and a focus and a lack of interruptions from people sort of tapping them on the shoulder in the cubicle. If you were to say to them. Hey, guys, everyone! Where would you prefer to work? They would all prefer to work from home. One Tech Company, that is a big advocate for remote work is base camp. They've been around for twenty years and they've been remote from the start. Even before it became popular, their staff work from home around the world. Let's listen to David. Haina Myer Hamson? He co-founded base camp with Jason Freed. He's also the creator of Ruby on rails. Actually for the first six months after I started working with Jason. We. Emailed an IM. We didn't even talk on the phone, so took six months I think before we had our first phone call and it took over year until we met each other in person so for very long time, this was not conventional wisdom, so we got access to this huge talent pool of people who've realized that they don't want. Live in San Francisco. They don't want to live in New York. They don't want WanNa. Live in Seattle. They don't live in any of these big tech hubs yet. The really proficient qualified people so. The fact that base Kim allowed them to do. This was a huge factor in both are hiring strategy and our retention strategy in two thousand twelve I had a series of conversations with other entrepreneurs. were, I would ask them about the work practice in and we talk about remote, and they would just give me these trite defenses for why remote can work. Oh, you can't do corporation. The magic only happens around the whiteboard and I thought like what people still think like this. Is that possible? The whiteboard is basically nonexistent base camp. The number one tool we have is writing acing cronies by yourself writing and you posted and you let time pass by good collaboration happens when. Creative people get time and space to do deep thinking. And they compiled deep thinking into deep writing, and the deep writing consists not of one chat line at the time, but a fully composed census form paragraphs the form complete arguments, and then you consider those arguments. With the advantage and calm of time, ninety percent is the considered writing that five percent chat, and then maybe five percent I. Don't know zoom or Tubal or some other video connection share my screen kind of collaboration. So Clive David is making some super interesting point here so I never would have thought of. Are there other ways of working that coders were using that? Make remote work success. Yea Absolutely. They arranged times when they know that they're going to be in contact. Maybe in face to face contact, so there was definitely companies I spoke to that said okay. We know our developers do their best work when they're not here. But we want them to be here some of the time you know. We want to have some face to face meetings. They still believe in that, and so they would have these schedules that were like you know from Tuesday and Thursday one zero five PM. We need everyone to be in the office. Just we can have some time to talk the rest of the time. Go wherever. Wherever you want, you can work in the office if you want to. You can work wherever you want. It could be you know at starbucks could be at home, so this sort of interesting lattice of new arrangements is is one thing that works really well another thing that I. think works really well as figuring out. What's sort of mode of chat or communication that everyone likes. Likes most in in David's case. He likes and his team likes long-form email conversations and I've definitely talk to people that like that, but other ones. They actually really liked slack, or they really liked good old fashioned IRC right like you know green text on a black background, but they worked out what they're. Co presence was because there's there's this phenomenon that sort of psychologists who talk. Talk, about online communication describe as ambient awareness, which is the the ability to know what other people are sort of thinking about doing when you're not physically there with them you know and there's a lot of technologies that allow us to do that and the best remote teams think carefully about what their ambient awareness method is, and they lock in on it and they use it.
What the Pain We Experience in Our Body Really Means
"The more that I learned about functional medicine and wellness. The more I'm sort of convinced that are more than our diet more than anything else. It's really our emotional health that really everything you could be eating perfect diet, but if you're troubled mentally by something, if something's on your mind, if you're afraid to have a particular conversation, whatever you can drive yourself sick and I'm sure you see it. People coming in, and there's this tension in their body, and they're doing all the right things, and you kind of maybe have a hunch what you say to those people. And how do you help them? Kind of dig it out when it's emotionally related. This, that's such a good point I think you know even Chinese medicine, there are certain organs that hold certain emotional centers for example. I know a lot of people on here can probably relate to having tight. Hip Flexes Hip flexor traditionally related to the emotion anger, so if we are going back to how emotions are stored in the body, they are stored not only in our organs also China's in the liver. is a seat of anger and so going back to movement and stretching and paying attention to that. Sometimes you know you. You hear people who take up yoga for example they do this yoga class, and they might be crying at the end of it or something. That's because or you know they go to a body worker Tom. Myers is a big leader in the fossil world. And he says you know sometimes he doesn't agree with body workers who just go in super aggressive and like you know working on people for that exact reason, because sometimes we are harboring whatever emotion in our body the motion is stored in the body exactly and so the minute. You know you sort of needed gentle and I find when I'm working on people's hip flexor to like there's an immediate you can see it in their face like when you touch their hip flexor. They cut F-. There's kind of this like you have to ask permission. You're sort of you know slowly pal painting in and then slowly working on it because you. You just can't go in and immediately work on it with crazy pressure for certain people. You know because they might have that, but yet I don't know them all off on my head, but emotions are definitely stored all over our body, our muscles and our organs, and so what I would say to those people a again is what the advice that I. I would say anyways is start with movement. Start with getting your body worked on 'cause. Sometimes it's hard for people to go in and a notice what the feelings are feeling, but I do say to my patients put a if I had a record or in your head all day long. What kinda thought it'd be coming up. We'll be the themes that keep. Keep coming up. What will be the tone that kept coming on the record? That's playing exactly. Yeah, and you know we always say what's the story that's playing over and over in your head right so Yeah I. Think I I think the good thing about that is that the body also impacts the brain so sometimes when you can't walk through some. If to ask yourself and look at yourself like where are you and do you need some work on the body? you know. Do you need to try tapping? Do need to see yes. A chiropractic doctors familiar with functional medicine. Do you need to do something to unlock things a little bit and to release this past stored? Trauma Center. That's inside the body that just stagnant. Oh for sure, even doing body scans. You know lying down and Kinda just in your head, saying okay, how are my fingers feeling? How is my palm of my hand feeling? How is my forearm feeling? How is my upper arm? Feeling and doing a whole scan of your entire body? Sometimes you'll, your mind will take you to certain places, and that might be an area of storage, and you might feel really sad. When you do a certain scan somewhere, you might feel. Feel really happy when you think of somewhere and that is exactly goes back to those emotions, disconnection from one's inner world is often caused by internalization. We feel things, and we keep them inside instead of expressing them with the people around us. We don't always process. Are True feelings? My dear friend John Immoral a Chiropractor, author and educator talks to us about how this disconnection can create stress, pain and trauma inside of our bodies. Some people don't even have a reference for a what it's like to be in flow they. Have felt truly. Ease and peace and flow and expansion energy flowing, because the body's been in a hyper vigilant state since they were going, and they have no referencing for even what could be possible, and I found that along the way so many human beings like the initials, my own experience, because I had very severe asthma, asthma and allergies, and all these reactive things happening in my body, growing up, and I was treated with. Injections for years I was given. It has been hailers giving cortisone creams, corticosteroid so I was. I was being treated from the outside in because my body was reacting to the environment, but my body was reacting to the environment because what I realized in my journey was because I was. I was feeling strong feelings and experiences that I didn't. But I wasn't connected to what I was feeling, so my I couldn't associate in a dialogue or a relationship with my inner world with my body, sensations and feedback, so it was numb. Inside
July 2020 Book News
"Back to books and Boba Club in pocket, which impose Asian and Asian American Authors Marinas Marina. And I'm re-re. You and we are here today our mid month episode toward the month of. July July. Twenty twenty. How're you doing? Good I can't believe that we're ready like halfway into July. Honestly if each like just started no right. Also, I realized that because Marvin and I used to record in studio. I used to see Marvin by twice a month in person, but we haven't. We haven't seen each other in like. Ever since March I don't think we've seen each other. It's been. It's been a while I think the last time we saw each other was when we were recording. What was our? Was? Our February book even. Was! It not south no map assault stars. was after I. Think it was May. who was such a long time, we? Can just look it up right now. I'm looking at right now. Because the Internet exists, I don't WanNa be one of those people who don't know how Gorka. Let's see now that there's like this website where you put in a Google Inc and then you send you send it to someone who asks you a question right like they could totally yes. Let let me Google there for you. Yeah, yeah, I back. When I was in Grad School, I was send to. My classmates would ask me dumb questions. They can just google themselves. sat quite a lot. In College as well our February Book Club pick was the kiss quotient. God so the one recorded with your friend Kaitlyn. That was our last the last time we saw each other. That's wow. Yeah. I feel like These past few months has reinforced idea that. I'm. Pretty Okay with staying at home all the time, which is something I didn't really know about myself or didn't remember about myself. What's your? What's your Myer Briggs by the way? I know it's I. I know it's complete bullshit, but. It does give me a good handle on whether someone is a really extroverted or introverted, and so my with the Myers Briggs is like so if I take the test I usually test at an NF, which is like the Uber. But because of the people I work with I'm often forced to take the set characteristics. So people are often surprised that I am at NFP because I was surprised, too. Because you know like your co host used to be Mindy. The. She does now she now does first of all which is. which is one of the PODCASTS Einar podcast collective and Like she's she's definitely like more extroverted. She's an actress, so yeah I was pretty surprised once I started co hosting with you. I thought it was just going to be to interest talking about books. That totally was not the case. The thing with like introvert extrovert is it's not really. Outgoing. This isn't the it's a trait of extroverts, but it's not. It's more of a symptom than like a core thing, right extroverts just means I. IF I'm out with people are like I can stay up all night. socializing gives me energy instead of expending energy I. Mean I think that's the core difference so? but but what I found is I do gain energy from socializing even online with people so I don't need face to face to be energized and the complete opposite for for. I mean like my Myers Briggs is on twitter, so a lot of people probably know already, but I am I've tested as I N T J. and. socializing is definitely not my strong point. Every time I do go out to Asian American like shindigs. People are always surprised that I'm there. 'cause tonight, because I, really I. Really don't go out. I'm pretty much a unicorn if you see me out in about. So I definitely adapted to the whole self isolation thing. Better than others I mean it helps. There's a lot of media to enjoy at home so I've been seeing a lot Final fantasy like the past. The past three weeks. Grace I recently I talked about this on some of the other pockets that I'm on I binged content this past week, so I washed the old guard, and that I watched all three seasons of dark, I watched the first season of umbrella academy I watched both current seasons of food wars, the the horny food anime, and then I went online and read the rest of the Manga series, so it's been Dan Marvin. I have unhealthy binge habits, which is why I try not to binge as much as possible because. Once I start something I will finish it. It's like it's not even it's not even a of a question. And then I'll spend the next ten hours reading pieces and analysis, so which is why like when you were watching killing eve as it was airing. It definitely curbed that addiction. I know but I've phone behind killing eve so now I have a whole season to binge later, so it's so good Marin about that So good. Yeah, I mean. It's the same with books to write I typically read books in like s few sittings as possible because. A because I have zero self-control, and if you give me the chance to just stay up all night and read something and free or something. I will take that chance

K-State players announce boycott after student's Floyd tweet
"Kansas State. Football. The players will not plaque the plaque to. Play or practice or even meet. Until a student at the university. Who tweeted? Something is thrown out of school. Several wildcat players. Including Sophomore wide receiver. Joshua young blood posted an image on or with a statement announcing the boycott. This weekend he said. To our family at Kansas State due to the recent, disparaging and sensitive and unsettling comments made by a fellow student, we as a football team consultation with students from campus organizations, as well as students from the General Student Body. Feel it as best for us to stand with the students. We are demanding that Kansas State University put a awesome place that allows a student to me, dismissed for displaying openly racist, threatening disrespectful action toward a student or groups of students. We have resolved that we cannot play practice or meet until these demands are heard and actions taken. We Love Kansas State, but we must stand together and protect all students moving forward. So. That comes from a tweet posted by a student named Jaden McNeil. And the tweet is no longer available. It has been yanked, and his account has been yanked, but it mocked the death of George Floyd. And you wouldn't think people would mock anybody getting killed in any situation, but obviously to mock something like that in these times is just not even to say out of left field is just insane. And so Kansas State has released a statement about the football boycott. The statement, said quote K. State Athletics along with President Richard Myers and university leadership respect and support our student athletes and standing up in the fight against racism at K. State. We are a family, and we will work together to make our campus community and even better place to call home. and. So multiple case day football players have. Talked about how they. are going to be boycotting and Chris Climbing. Is just starting his second year there. He put out a statement. Our Program on our coaches will continue to be part of the solution when it comes to racial. And Justice. They meant racial injustice. I love our players and they know I have their backs. The Gene Taylor chimed in. Recent tweets from case day student. Downplaying the black lives matter effort and the tragic and senseless death of George Floyd are disgusting and totally inappropriate and not reflective. Of who we are as university or our athletic department. They are not reflective of our administration and goals. We are committed to listening and supporting our black athletes, black students and members of our black community, and taking positive steps in the matter of social justice racism. So then CBS, CBS sports reached out. To the students. And Chris Climate reply to CBS. Racism is all caps not welcome a state now in the future and off the field as family. We make a difference to our. Action, I am excited help every player unite for the solution all caps now so that we can come together stronger than ever. Black lives matter as he put it.

Whale Protections Need Not Cause Lobstering Losses
"There's a lot of cash crawling on the sea floor. American lobsters, bringing more money than any other US Fisher, a record, six hundred and seventy million dollars in two, thousand, sixteen, mostly through Maine Massachusetts. The fishery relies on traditional lobster harvest techniques. A series of traps is drops to the ocean floor with a long rope attached to a floating buoy during peak fishing season. There's over nine hundred thousand vertical lines right in the middle of right whale habitat graduate student, Hannah Myers. Myers from the University of Alaska Fairbanks College of fisheries and ocean sciences, those vertical lines entangle and kill endangered sea turtles and multiple whale species, including the North Atlantic right whales, only about four hundred individuals remain, and recent analyses show that the species won't survive if humans kill an average of one whale each year, some estimates indicate that lobster in gear kills more than three whales each year on average management problems. Problems surrounding the north? Atlantic right whale and entanglements are pretty significant and have been really challenging to move forward, and a large part of that is due to expected negative economic impact in the lobster fishery, but right we'll protections don't have to mean lobster losses, Canada's lobster harvest operates with fewer traps and a shorter six-month-long season. The US lobster fishery in Maine expense, approximately seven and a half times as much as. As, the Canadian fishery to catch the same amount, and Canadians are catching almost four times more lobster protract. They're putting less effort into it and spending less on fuel and equipment, but they're still gathering nearly the same amount of lobster overall, and there are stateside examples in Massachusetts areas that have had a seasonal closure. In recent years have reached a record high landings. The study was published in the Journal. Marine policy. Restrictions could actually mean a healthier lobster population overall it paradoxical, but it is consistent with a lot of fisheries research that shows that when you fish with too much effort and too many traps in the water. The stock itself isn't as robust so one thing we might expected that you would either have you know more or larger lobsters if there if fewer. Fewer traps into water, coming into each trap, and therefore able to haul up more lobster trap, and that's kind of what we see on the Canadian side, taking some of those ropes out of the water could benefit both the whales and the Fisher. Our main takeaways that a negative economic impact should not be assumed with effort reduction in the US fishery.

"myers" Discussed on Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend
"Making this up on the spur of the moment. But I'd like to introduce a segment that will probably only air once in. It's called. Maybe I'm as big a nerd as Gowrali. That's the name of this segment. Yeah this is just my. When is your birthday? This should be your birthday gift? Oh It's coming up may twenty. Okay all right. This is your birthday gift for medias you doing this or I I get what you're about to show no no you don't you don't get this. You don't get to have this but you get to have this experience of me showing you a site of myself that if you revealed this to me I would shit on you endlessly for it but now I'm going to reveal it to you as an absolute gift. Okay Oh my God okay. All right so we're all in this pandemic in everyone's thinking What do we do? And of course we've kept pretty busy we've been doing. Tv Show And we've been doing the podcast and we keep muddling through but that still leaves chunks of time and doing different things you know learning different songs on the guitar and Messing about and then I found. I forgot that I had bought years and years ago. A BALSA Wood Kit for a model airplane. It's quite complicated. And I found an exacto blade and I found some wood glue and the instructions are incredibly complicated and I started having away at this thing weeks ago and I am building a thousand nine hundred. Seventeen sop with camel. That's what isn't that what Pity flies in the peanuts yes? It's what snoopy flies. It is my God and it is this is just one part of the other wing the top wing on the. I'm showing it now We are all in our separate places but we have zoom so I'm showing it to you. It's incredibly complex and as you can see like it's very frustrating to try and put this thing together but become kind of obsessed with it and then I had this flash moment last night when I was up late sanding an era lawn for I four the rear tail section when I thought Oh my God not only in my no better than Gowrali. I'm worse I'm if you had done if you had done this is this something. Admit Goral is this something you would ever do or is it too much even for you know it would be. Maybe something I do and I just WanNa say for you sharing this to me for you to take that leap and take that risk. I would love to tell you you are a huge fucking look. At the look at the intricacies solo route flat cap wearing knickers. Little argyle socks. What do you wear when you make that thing You know what I love. You're not good at it as me. It's not in my heart. I want to support. Don't have a black black heart and that's your problem. That's very excited that you're doing that Yeah I've been working on this thing and then realising what I've got to show this to and when I'm done I'm going to suspend it from my ceiling. The way a little boy would in nineteen thirty five in bedroom now and. I'm having my bedroom. I think that's just a boehner killer. That's a boehner killer. Excuse me I'm sorry. Wait what did you mean? I didn't mean to jump in. But what does it mean when you guys were showing it and then Gortat was getting etc like these to fuck just like? Wow Wow it's a dork off it's not a Dork First of all we've established as a door. No WE'VE ESTABLISHED. I think on a previous episode that I have big Dick Energy. Now I clear this up you are a big Dick. You don't have big Dick. You GotTa admit when I was showing you on zoom the intricacies of my Balsa Wood. One thousand nine hundred seventy with camel. I think we I exuded. Big D energy will take when you finished with that. You wrap it in like a canvas like the normally are. That's the part I have to go on and so I know you're into the Internet. I am going to wrap it. I'm GONNA comes with a tissue but you. It's very complicated. A tissue. It comes with a tissue listen to yourself now that you apply as the skin and then you have to. It's this complicated process but I have to go online so I've actually entered a phase now. Where if you're up late and your wife finds you in your study watching the Internet in a clandestine way the assumption would be it's porn but she's going to see is me looking up how to properly a dope and apply the tissue for Nineteen Seventeen. Balsa wood salt with camel porn and unlike and I will be in that moment when she sees it. That's what I'm looking at. I'm going to wish I had been looking at four. I want me and I had to shut the computer down because I was looking up. How To build her a cutting board for her birthday and she thought I was hiding some kind of porn right and then you realize the guy who was showing how to build it on the video was you. It was that was a weird twist and you would forgotten that you had made this video because every day you do six hundred things like a couple jocks which culture shock to our my look. I don't want to disparage people who like the stuff I feel bad but it's you make it so easy to just I mean a would plane. No it's cool. It's cool but it's not just Balsa wood the softest and lightest of the woods. Oh and here we are again Conan united and sonus coming down on us like some Alpha. Yeah sorry how did this happen that this podcast became an IRA now? To sixteen-year-olds southern debutantes and you are and you are Dwayne the Rock Johnson. How did this happen? I'll take it. I'll take it well. I think it was. It started when Gowrali showed us his eisenhower phone. And you like basically came in your pants basically came. I have let it like Lewinsky. I saved the clothing. Yeah I if proof I I loved it. I love presidential stuff I love Americana I love and so an Eisenhower. Summer residence phone just blew my mind yes. I'll admit that yeah. I think that's when I was like okay. You to share interests I do not have and you know are those interests something. Someone who would traditionally be considered cool half probably not. Let me little thought experiment okay. We don't know each other okay. Pretend you're not married to tack. You're single you're like a a cool bar something And I'm not like Conan O'Brien the famous person. I'm just who I am. You know. Okay you're at the club. You're with your your your Gal Pals Right Vero and lousy your friends yet and Suddenly I walk in and I'm wearing suede jacket and I'm well dressed and pretty confident and I'm holding a one thousand nine hundred seventeen balsa wood with camel. There isn't a hold on a second. Be completely honest. There's not some part you and your friends aren't like fuck. Fuck that guy because I burst through the crowd behind them and run. Corley cock blocks you because he wants a piece that you have to admit no other guy has come into the club that night holding now the some guys our reason for holding some guys have come in holding a Balsa Wood to Jalan send people have come in holding a Balsa Wood Falker. Some people have come in holding a Balsa Wood MESSERSCHMITT cause more into World War Two balsam woods. But I'm holding this up with Kimmel. There's some part of you maybe not you but one of your friends who's like fuck nope fuck that. God Oh my God that guy goes all night? Oh my God oh no I think the thing that is so sir. Long holding that plane no club. That guy would be home with his parents watching like. I don't know you would not be at a club is the that's where the disc bouncer saw me and again. Let's say we gotta do the caveat on Conan O'Brien who gets you into every club guided clubbing. I Love Duck clubs and I put Z. At the end but you think a bouncer with he saw a guy like me in line holding and let's reiterate this is the plane that arguably helped Britain win the air war. One the camel all of this that one. Yeah also listeners. You should know it's like at least a foot or foot and a half. Wow that's really big tiny thing we're talking about the plane that's big. Tick Energy Man. That's what I'm talking about. Well I'M STARTING TO BE ONBOARD. The bouncer and everyone in line would mercilessly. Just beat you up. I think they would just destroy you as long as they don't harm the model then I'm fine with it. I think they would shove the model up your anus. I really think that's what's going to happen. They'll sodomise you with your model airplane as much as I don't WanNa be sodomized if it's nineteen seventeen sop with camel and really done carefully like really put together. Well I'll take. It's the most tender of all the biplane and the amount of time what happened happened. This is completely so stem mounted time. You took showing us every inch of the plane. I wanted you to see that each air. Lawn was handcrafted. Yeah Good Work. Thank you only cares. I don't care girl when it's done. I'm going to show it to you but it's got a hanging from my ceiling. I'm very excited. Oh my God I hate it here. That's my gift to you. Thank you very much. Also my gift to you. You WanNa lead your in your house. Someone's calling me and I think no one's calling you. We would hear that any meeting you would have would be with me on zoom. I have to do this meaning. It's very important I ho- yeah what. What TERRIBLE ACTRESS. What's that you need me okay? Ira Go well anyway. Modeling ENTHUSIASTS OUT. There contact me. We'll swap are modeling tales together. Yeah a big Big Dick Party.

"Anymore. Canadian movies are all like the feel good hit of the summer. And it's like it's a busload of children go into a leak. Neil Daiei really really true. A real knee slapper generally important that they're making movies like that though. My very good friend David. Mckenzie said it's called cinema bleak Scandinavia of North America. We're an observer. Nation Martin. Short has the great quote you know when Americans are watching. Tv they're watching TV and we Canadians are watching TV. They're watching American TV. There's just a little bit of a distance that we have you know. We don't have a way of life that we export. I have a t shirt that said Canada. Living The American dream since eighteen sixty seven without the violence again is passive aggressive. You know the little sting in there and also. I think you guys work out a lot of your issues through hockey. There's you know what I mean. You have a sport where you're allowed to throw down your stick and tear someone's jaw off And then you're really proud of the fact that there's no violence and I think I think you the the thing that I love about. That specifically is that in the in the game of hockey one of the tactics is to pull the Jersey over the other guy in in hockey. So he can't Jimmy's mobilized he's a mobilized and he can't see where the punches are coming from but they've built into the rules that you have to have what's called a fighting strack on your Jersey that attach to your pants so it's kind of your fault if you allow someone to do that to you really that another that. They put that in there so that he didn't put his strap on. Yeah it's true we didn't have as fighting strap on so you know how to me. Punish the guy that got the crap beaten out of them for not having the fighting strap on his Jersey attached to his hockey fan. I will tell you a story that you will enjoy and I think most other people don't understand what I'm talking about but so we went to Toronto. Did Week of shrimp does so. What are the idea was Conan plays with the Toronto Maple leafs right and I said Okay and then I get there and I'm working out with the maple leafs who could not have been nicer great guys and there's one of them. I just chose at random I said. Hey It'd be really good if we had a shot at me getting taken out So it just shows a guy at random and his name was tie. Domi. Oh Wow. That's the wrong one. The pick shoot. He'll take your date. Well I didn't know but he was. He was built like a bank safe. He actually had a little dial and there was money inside him but I think he was used as a bank safe but I said to him. Hey your name. He's just tired and I went. Okay Tie just take me out. It'd be really funny. We're going to put the camera here and of course I'm talking comedy. I'm thinking he's going to come in and kind of gently slide into me but because the cameras behind the cameras angled a certain way. It'll look like I got hit much harder than related but really it will just be this soft contact because I think I'm talking to a sketch performer right. But I'm talking to this guy named title me and anyone who knows hockey anywhere else. Listening to this knows that I picked the worst guy in the history of hockey quite simply so he said okay so I go alright. Start Rolling and anytime now tie and he came in and the next thing. I know I don't even remember feeling pain. Right did go back in time back. I think I saw I saw. I was at Lincoln's deathbed crafter. I had so many out of body experiences and then a bunch of people were around me and then I remembered one guy just saying I was saying what the fuck and the guy said what happened and I said well I just asked. Our I did was tell tie. Domi right take me out. And the guy cut me off and went. What but lovely guy. Not His fault. Your I don't know if he gets if you can hear this podcast in prison. But now tie Domi. He's he's super funny. He said to me He started to score goals. You know and I said tie. That's great that's really great any went. When a crusher becomes a rusher he becomes an usher. Which means if you're like a guy who's known to be an enforcer yet don't try and score goals when a crusher becomes a rusher guy who scores goals he becomes an usher which means they no longer want him on his team. The exactly yeah. He's got to go back to watch all three of those rind. I don't know I could see right. There was Ryan's yes but I'm not getting that I'm not putting on my wedding ring now. I wouldn't I wouldn't again. I wouldn't again. It's funny because you brought up Marty Short. Yeah and I and this is something And I've become friendly with him over the years but you n Martin. Short you both are very similar and your access to old world. Bits like whatever it takes says Song Polar Ace Character Stories raconteurs. Yes all right there. And then I found and I was thinking thought about this. Before but Martin Short Mike Meyers this similarity. In in this old world idea of how to entertain people and then I find out that his father grew up and the shorts are. He's like first generation right therefore Irish writer. Ira Yeah and he'll talk about his father and he'll become his father ran and immediately. It's the Irish accent. And he'll tell all these amazing stories and you think yeah. This is coming from that world and I always think of weirdly. I was thinking of the Beatles kind of being close. Irish. 'cause Liverpool is just across. Yeah just across the way and they really are the call it the capital of Ireland Liverpool. Yeah and so sort of an Irish an Irish quality but you guys both have that in your I mean I think I think you could see it if I took saliva from. Us Why have Marty's fluids? Yes if I got some fluid from you. They're on their way through on the way which I thought was an odd request for this podcast. This 'cause I'm Canadian I went. I guess I have to which I guess is why I sit prehensile because I think that might be a little bit of passive aggression at the end of the day. I think so because I didn't want to put emotion now. No no one wants that. Oh I'm GONNA say the motive obe now we are. We're we're definitely at second city in Toronto when you do like you know sketches from from previous casts and they'll throw the into the show. I always got the Martin Short parts. Yup Yup and there's sort of a you know they always have like a small guy with a lot of energy a big guy you know it was always an tall guy. Who's smart ass you know? There's always there's a little bit of a formula nine definitely. It's like me Tim. Cazar Rynski Martin Short. I mean it's funny because I you know we're all in quarantine but were allowed to take walks you know. If we're hearing masks are the other day I took a walk with Martin Short and we're walking along and this this is literally like four days ago and this kid goes Some kids are riding by on their bikes kids. About eight years old and suddenly his bike hits something it flips forward and the kid goes ass over tea kettle like two times and lands on the ground. And it's stunning. The kid just went. Whoa flying through the air as for tea kettle lands on the ground and before anyone could say anything Marty short to said and hold for applause. Let's say they kids. Let's see him. The kids up yet or not. I Mari thank. The kid was fine. The kids topped up and hold for your applause And it's just like that's him going through life like narrating Liverpool too. I mean Liverpool. Like if we're at a restaurant with my dad and somebody drop something. My Dad would say the JOKELA fire the just know when you pull into a driveway to turn around my dad. Say All right everyone out. Don't give you right name and I'm watching. Everything was everything fell off a truck. You know like if you could find a way to save twenty five cents. You Know My dad what you pay for that. They saw you coming mate. It's it's a funny thing to 'cause you're talking about being like there's six faces and Liverpool and I have one of them you mean and it's it's really really funny. I I did The premiere of Wayne's world two in Liverpool and was like I think the first Hollywood or whatever you WanNa call it you know kind of American movie to do its premier there and the mayor came and it was like I'd like to have a few words with my face crap and we got a police escort and the guy in the motorcade was like all right this way Mr Myers. My face pass efficient chip place in this guy. You know with my face. It's so crazy and I see like I think we're from the same Gene Pool. Martin shorts from the same gene pool. George Harrison's definitely looked exactly like my dad George Harrison. It's I think there is but mostly what I think. It is in Liverpool is. It's my my a film. Companies called no money fund films. It's sort of when you kind of don't own anything except your own body. You do tend to have to make your own entertainment. That's kind of what it is more than anything. Is You just have to make your own entertainment? Yeah I think you could say you've done that I think you could say you've done that in spades. I get to talk to a lot of different people. But you're one that. I'm hoping I'll say this. I'm hoping we get to do this again some time because I feel like I feel like I can talk to you about comedy for about thirty five hours and You know it'd be two hours in there. That were just dad right right. Oh Good And because we'd need to sleep but yeah But I I've really this. This is you know I've known you met you so long ago. Senior I I've I've seen it all happen From a nice vantage point and I've always had I've always thought that's a guy I would love to. Just sit and talk to about all of these things and I feel like yeah. We've been talking for. I think an hour or something and not a scratch the surface so I I know you've got better things to do but anytime you don't If you'd like to hop on again this is I'd love to. That'd be great. It's really been it's been special for me. Yeah me too. I have to say when I first got the Saturday night live. You know it's very intimidating and I was really really intimidated and I I got. I didn't get an office for the first year. My Office was being cross legged on my coat by the Elevator Bank and I got my first desk and you would put a note in there. I don't know if you remember this. Which was dear Mike Right? I will destroy you. I don't know how I don't know when but I will destroy you. And the greatest part of it is that no one will know. I had anything to do with it love Conan good jokes and super like you know. Yeah I've always loved the I always loved the idea of there'll be no proof tying to this crime sincerely yours. Brian. Fifth Nineteen ninety-one. Yeah exactly that was really funny joke. Well you know I will destroy you my yes. I know that I know that I know I've been. I've been tardy. Yes I know. I've allowed your.

I'm going to let you return to the to the wild but I want to say this has been This has been really special for me. And one of those people that We pass occasionally here and there.

He's eight eight and I said well you know it's kind of tribute movie goes so you just completely like ripped off that I said. Well that's it. It's more of a my sanae. It's a sad he goes. I know but like the scars the same scar and you could have put some hair on the side of his head fit and I was like there. You Go. What's that experience like of having kids? Now who see your work? Mine are very good at either pretending to not care or just really not caring but I'll show them a look. That's your dad in nineteen ninety-five doing a sketch. They just posted online. That people really thought was pretty funny and they'll look at it and go Galant younger yeah. I don't know I don't know what that experience is like for you. Well it. It's cool first of all. I saw him instantly the other thing he said to me about. I don't know about eight minutes. And he turned to me and he went. Oh my God George. Lucas must've loved these movies. Which I thought was Kinda Great. 'cause he saw you thought that James Bond was kind of like Luke skywalker. You know what I mean. He's very very like in knowledgeable about star wars and I said Yeah I said you know the James Bond bad guys and all that sort of premark marvel star wars at eight. He got that lineage was Kinda cool but we were sitting out on the deck. I'd say about a year ago. He had seen all pretty much all the movies. Not all of them but and he sort of said to me. Hey can I tell you a secret and the ICE said share what goes. I'm your number one fan and I was like That's really sweet. Because I love your movies. And he's very you know like if somebody came over to the table at a restaurant and and I said are you good with that. And he was like. Yeah Dude they love your movies. So Do I. I was like I can't handle it. Can't very sweet same with my My Middle Kid. She's really super proud. And stuff is cool. So it's been a really really positive experience and it's funny because even talk you talking about it. I can tell what a struggle it is for you to. Just let that happen. Now take that in. Do you know what I mean. It's not it doesn't because of the way you were raised and not just the way you were raised. Its in your so. It's funny just listening to you. Trying to overcome a couple of hundred years of of wiring. The genetics and wiring to hear that from your kids. Yeah it's sweet. The hardest weirdest thing is I have American kids. This is the other thing to and their New Yorkers and they are New Yorkers through through. You know the joy that my son hails a cab and he's just super super savvy in ways that I never was and savvy about entertainment have so much entertainment to watch. We had you know. Abc NBC CBS CBC and See TV Global. And that's it. You know constantly telling my stop making stuff because there's enough stuff made a lot of stuff. Plus lots of other people are making tons of really good stuff and I think we have now more good stuff than you can see in a lifetime You know there's still you know so many classic films I haven't seen maybe we should stop making things and all of us and they don't like this line of reasoning because snow because we need stuff to be well also the the they get paid. No one's going to pay them to watch the seventh seal so So there's that but but yeah I know there was so much out there you know something I also wanted to ask you about. Is I know because we've talked a lot about Liverpool English comedy but it's interesting that Canada is such a huge deal for you. What how will you when you moved to Canada? Now I was born in Canada. You are learn there. Yeah my cat. My parents moved to fifty six. I was born in sixty three. Got It got it okay. You were born there but then you moved back to England I did. Yeah and I'm that guy. I have three citizenships now. I Canada United Kingdom in America. But yeah I I'm very Canadian. I wrote a book about Canada and I said people accused me of enjoying being Canadian and I would say I do. I do enjoy being Canadian. It's an odd country to be from. It's it's a country that was born without a mission statement. There's no real mandate for it to exists you know. It's sort of an anomaly of geography and politics that it exists. You know it's not England. It's not France and it's not the United States this other thing but it is a collection of ideals and I think you know in the last twenty five years of my life. If I wasn't born in Canada I WOULD WANNA be from Canada. It's so funny because there is is it's a cliche and it's an off often asking asked question. I've never really quite gotten to the bottom of it which is so many of my comedy heroes. When I was coming of age on the same age as you was born in sixty three and I think we have the reference points but monty python was A. He was a huge huge thing for me. But then when I'm about I don't know twelve thirteen fourteen somewhere around there. I start to get glimpses of SETV. There are so many funny people that have come out of Canada and so much amazing comedy so clearly. Something's going on up there and it's completely from entire cast at live over to. Setv to kids in the high two kids in the hall. Yeah you I mean it just like it just carries from Toronto John Kennedy. Yes and it's just absolutely ridiculous If you had any clue at all as to oh no they put something in the water in in nineteen forty one and ever since then people have been funny. Well they did put flooring in the water. I don't know but that'll do. The science hasn't come back on that yet. I don't know why I have a team of people working on it. I don't know why I think a lot of it has to do with. It seems possible for me. It seemed possible. Walking on the moon is a Canadian. Didn't seem terribly possible and I often say with America. You guys put a man on the moon but we've been awfully nice to man on earth. You know what I mean. It's been a little passive aggressive also. Well this is Canada. This is candy has to two things that are kind of secrets. Were secretly passive aggressive. And maybe that's not such a secret but we're also secretly morbid. Which is another thing. Oh yeah that's always. Every story from my friends. Are you her about the guy? He died in front of his kids in front of his kids. Almost like I I know at least twenty five stories of my friend. He died in front of his kids then. His kid saw it and died to a bird. That's just this whole in the ground where people in kids just come to see other kids. Don't lie.

"Felt? Were almost like a implanted into your skull from this. Old World Sensibility. If you've got to keep them laughing you gotta keep you know essence. See to gotta get him in there and you gotta an and. I would think yeah. This guy was later on that. I found out your child performer. And also you had spent so much time in the UK. And then I found out about the Liverpool connection. And I thought it's fascinating because even the Beatles who are musical geniuses you could always see that they had this sense of you gotta give them a good show. You're kind of You know I feel like we're in the service industry. You're being an entertainer. It's more ego. It's not quite ego death but it's my gene pool. Is People that serve people. You know what I mean. Yeah you know. People always have past life regressions. And they're like you know I was a king and another life and I'm like now. I'm pretty certain I was a surf. You know pretty certain. I made clay bricks and stuff you know and you know. That's how I feel about showbusiness itself. I never studio heads. I didn't really think we're my boss. I but I think the audience was my boss. You know what I mean. They had a lot of bosses. You know if they showed up in there and they're willing to listen and stuff you you'd better put on a pretty good show you know it's funny because I can relate to that because later on in comedy I encountered if comedy got very conceptual and people started to say yet. Didn't get a laugh but they are almost disdainful of the laugh rare. I'm making a point here and so the laugh isn't important and I remember always thinking. Wait a minute if we're getting into a kind of comedy were laughter isn't necessary. I I think I'm out I that's all I know is. Did people enjoy it and I had this nice experience of getting to rediscover the Austin powers films recently because my kids were the right age and I thought Oh my God you gotta see this. And they didn't know they were like hadn't seen them yet. They had heard of it but they hadn't watched it and so I said okay. We're doing this and so we screened all the Austin powers movies and they are just howling their howling and they're really good they. They're really good comedy fans. They're really smart about what's funny. It was something I was noticing was watching with them. Which is this kind of relentless pace you set for yourself to keep. Yes there's character development and there are moments that have to happen is you're unfolding a story and caring about people but man you keep the comedy coming all the time all the time. Yeah I think it was. You know suffered for my art and now it's your turn you know. I've never really. I haven't heard that one I attributed to the Bonzo dog band but It's a lot to ask if people sit in the dark and not talk about themselves. You know you might as well be entertaining and I. I always like movies where I didn't want to leave the world. I always felt that way about a hard day's night. Just hang with those guys and I was always sad when the movie was over. I felt that way about the Pink Panther Movies. Felt that way about ghostbusters. I was like I like living in that world. You mean to me I like to any kind of comedy world you live in. It's a bit brighter than our world. You know when I think of being an happy comedy world. I think of it being coca-cola red and at and T. Blue and Kodak yellow one of the things that I'm really happy about in. I have a lot of two zero to Jay Roach and Michael mccullers about Austin powers as we became clip art of political art. We weren't ourselves political like Doctor. Evil if anybody's despotic and not really good at their job of being a despot their Dr Evil which is kind of Yup awesome. You know and that that's more my more my comfort level. You know what I mean you know. Given a choice between mutual destruction doing a movie like failsafe which is a melodrama or strange love. Which is a farce. We liked Failsafe we admired it but we remember the farce more you know. It was a spoonful of sugar. Was it works list on vitamins. If you follow the vitamins are good for you.

"What about the murdering later? In the night he started murdering all of you did. It's so it's so funny because I found all this stuff out about you later on I met shoe I was at cerrone. It live as a writer and I remember the day you came in they said. Oh there's a new kid coming in a performer. Mike Myers and I remember before I even met you. Saying Mike Myers as we'll knock him down to size Will will make short work of this. Mike Myers you'll never hear from him again. Now I ever you walking into the conference room you were very nice. Very polite Kind of quiet and you were wearing a leather jacket that I believe had did have the Canadian flag on the back. It was the Toronto Police. I think Yeah Okay. All right you came in and you were a success at the show instantly and a lot of people come in and it takes them a while to figure out what they're doing and you came in and you said well. I've got this idea for something called Wayne's world and I was like we'll see about this ways would not hear that again and You did it. I think almost instantly on the show and instantly it became an iconic thing. And we're like you are often running. I remember at the read through table. Really you first of all you were so generous to me. I just. I couldn't believe it. I thought it was so fantastic. And I remember when I was writing a dealer. And I said to Germany's number one show and you just sat and went. Who are you to accuse me okay? Okay Germany's number one pop song and you said irritant number nine. I was always gave me one time. I wrote a sketch and it made no sense whatsoever. And he went to go for a walk. Go for a walk and I came back in like ninety minutes later. And you'd literally rewritten it and put it in the right order where it now made sense and it sang and all the jokes popped off the page and I always remember that. That was so lovely. You know you feel like you were able to relax Senate live ever now when you were such a success. I I wish I had. I look back now and go. Hey did well on that show but at the time is just such A. It's a monster that eats your material. Insatiably The you're just feed the bear feed the bear. The you don't enjoy it that much and I sometimes forget I was on the show only because I'm so I'm so in the world of my kids now that it's it's sort of there's life before the kids and then there's life after the kids you know what I mean right because it's such a profound great happiest time of my life experience but it's it's that is a regret. I wished I'd enjoyed it more but I also I also I knew it was special though at the time. I knew that I was so honored to be part of that institution. What I mean I felt like I was playing for the Toronto. Maple leafs so I love to wear the Jersey than of. Snl that that much. I did enjoy. It's the thinking you're getting fired. The whole time is a little bit of the buzzkill. But that's more about me and Well I will say this. I can corroborate. Yeah if it helps. Maybe doesn't help button. I exactly agree that I always knew it was special while I was there and I always knew I need. I need to honor this. This is special and it really launched me in so many ways have always been eternally grateful to return to me too so and really felt feel that in my bones but I will say it's very hard to explain to people that I've never been as scared and low in my life as I was on those Tuesday nights when we had to stay up all night and right you got nothing you got nothing and you're wondering the hallways and all the other doors are shut and you hear people laughing up. 'cause to other three other people would be by behind a door and they'd be laughing. 'cause they're writing in your mind is the greatest sketch in the world. And you're wondering those halls at thirty rock and it is kind of quiet painful Insecurity and depth and kind of adaptive despair. That I don't know that I've known since And then the next day if people are laughing at your sketch in its in its in elation and I just found. I did it for a couple of years then I was like. I can't do this anymore because it was when you freeze the glass. And then you pour hot tea into it it explodes in. Sharon's found the deep deep despair. Tuesday at three in the morning. Existential I don't deserve to live. Yes I'm Afr- I'm a fraud. I think I'm funny but I'm really not now. I'm going to the bathroom for the ninth time and I don't even have to but I'm just trying to have STU something. Yes and then elation ten hours later I couldn't handle it well when I did the the Wayne's world with Aerosmith and Tom. Hanks was like nine minutes and twenty two seconds long. Yep I thought I'd blown it. I just went into the change booth afterwards and I just started to cry and and Dennis Miller came over. And it was like Mikey. You blew the doors off the roof. You know whatever mix metaphor but you know what I mean and I was like. That's my Dennis for that. Yeah and Chat Chan the guy who like the dresser guy you know Malcolm said Mr Myers is very upset right now anyway. How mikey one of those people? That can't enjoy it because I've been on this show for like six years. I've never heard cheer stomps in whistles like that goes to bad and he walked away and I thought yeah wants to bad. Yeah yeah enjoyed it. We're side noted done well and I've seen it a couple times since you know I was like that was pretty good. You know. Yeah is that when we you gave the Bass player for Aerosmith? Yes great speech and he completely nails it yes. I'm blanking on his name. He's a terrific guy but he you gave him this incredibly dense like he's quiet the whole time and suddenly he cuts in and he has this amazing speech. There's never been a blueprint for the proletarian dictatorship. Yes yeah yeah. Yeah and he just said it like well of course and and I thought that's beautiful that was but I remember one time and this is a great CONAN story. I've told many many people I forget who the host was. I actually don't I don't like saying the names of hosts that were not terribly nice. I think it's boring. Yeah one of the hosts was torturing you all week and you've even had pre tapes and stuff like that and you came in and your sketch was cut. We all looked over to you right. The between the dress and air show you go in. And there's three by five cards of the entire running order of the show and you go in to see if your sketches made it and if it's been cut it's put to the left and it's really painful and horrible but if it's in and it's to the right you know you kind of go os before update does it after update. You're just relieved that it's in really. You know what I mean and you came in you saw and I saw I saw that it'd been cut and I knew been tortured by this host and you came in and went perfect. It's all going perfectly to play and you got a standing ovation and I was like. Is that Bullshit? Or is that for real? Now it's for real and I was like dude. That is exactly the right attitude you perfect. It's all perfectly the plan. Yeah to me. In my mind's eye you came in sort of like you. You knew exactly what you were doing because you had been performing your entire life you have been performing since you were a kid and you develop characters. Is that correct like you walked into? Snl Like yeah. I think I'm ready for this. No I thought I was being fired every week and I came in and I had not really seen the show because I worked at Saturday a second city in Toronto and before that I was living in England and I hadn't seen Dana Carvey or Jon lovitz or Phil Hartmann Jan Hooks. Anybody and I didn't know who Jack Handy was. I I've lived in England and I came back and I remember. Do you remember the taxi dispatchers these great taxi dispatchers in Toronto? Who were super funny? There's one taxi guy who kinda called Baloney Sandwich. Because you'd always be like We need a car at Dundas and then we wouldn't hear their side of any go give them a Baloney Sandwich. No reason for no reason so eastern taxicab in Toronto but anyways they then he started to say. Isn't that special? It'd be like what what is he saying. What does this isn't he special? And I really truly had not seen it. Because it wasn't on in England I lived in England from eighty three to eighty six so data's blowing up with church lady going. Isn't that special? You don't know you don't know anything about it. No but everybody's saying isn't that special now? It's like wow. That is so weird so then I got on the show and I saw Dana and I saw phil and I saw Kevin Neal in and I was just like I've never been talented. I'm going to get fired. I was scared shitless. I thought they were so great and so- accomplished in and it's funny because my mom was very like the show she wasn't terribly. I don't think she was a fan. Really my mom of my work that much but she would say that Dana Carvey is very disney. He's just got it he's just got that whatever. The Americans have that slickness. They've just got at night. They and I was like yeah so I I had an near nervous breakdown. The first three weeks I was on the show. That's not how it came across. Obviously to me it's interesting. So was your mom's someone who would also tell you. Oh you're great. You're fantastic or would she. Was it more of that? Inspiring you by reserving. I think it's probably more that that's the way you know sort of you know for the longest time. I would say to my mom. Oh I love you. My mom would go. I know you do and wow mothers of Sparta you know. Yeah it's like you didn't get caught. Stealing got caught got punished for being caught for stealing enough for stealing in enemy. Yeah Yeah my dad. Of course I could do no wrong in my dad's eyes but my mom was very very withhold withholding and she would say oh pressure makes diamonds food. My older brother would say it also makes rubble and cream. Rises to the top and my brother was say. Yeah so this come in. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah your brother was there to point these things out. My mom also was like the most noble thing would be to be an actor and I literally would say you know. I'm thinking of being an architect and she. You don't WanNa do that. You want to be an actor. You know exact opposite of what most people get right right. Yeah I I'm thinking of becoming a doctor you know. Now now don't waste your time doesn't need more doctors you know it needs it's funny because I have you know my dad's thing was he would encourage me to be worried. It sharpens the senses and it. It makes you work harder and I was like yeah. Kiss my happiness within my own skull. Doesn't that count for anything? Well there's things to be done and accomplished much a lot of time later for half and it's funny because even now as as a now that I'm a father and I have a sixteen year old daughter I'll be talking to my father and I'll say yeah I know she's doing great you know she had a little bit of Sometimes she gets very anxious about her schoolwork and my father will cut me off. And that's good that's good that's good and I think I'm yelling at him on my behalf. Not on her behalf but I I always thought what sets you apart from. So many of these people is that you clearly had come from this older tradition And it was I I was thinking about. What is it about this guy because this guy is just yet so many moves that I.

"Think more than almost any performer. I've met in my life. You come from this very old school. Almost Ville tradition an remembered. You telling me once that your mom would tell you how to smile when you were ahead. When there was almost a slogan that she had I picked you being about three years old. And your mother telling you how to smile. Do you remember what that was? Yes she said is in T. She'd likes certain types of performers. That stayed with me like Ken. Berry remember can vary of course. He's fantastic that Ken Berry and I was I. I like Ken Berry. Ken Berry was on f troop part of the ensemble of Carol Burnett show exactly and He was also and this leads to a much bigger discussion. But why this is important is that I could see your mom. Your mom and dad both came from Liverpool's yeah and then they came to Canada but you I almost feel like we all adopt sort of our parents. Ethos it's just how it is so you almost picked up an English musical sensibility. Generally mean the most definitely. But you're like marinated in and so like. I could see your mom liking Ken Berry. I remember he was a song and dance man with a with a big smile and I always knew that you're the kind of performer. Who almost felt like you could have existed in eighteen fifty and you would have done the circuit and you would have had a steamer trunk and you would have done. Just great because you have that. Wake them up at two o'clock in the morning and tell him he's gotTa do forty five minutes and you'll do it. It's one hundred percent true. It's you know there's a performer.

"So what do I do buy that having any fun together? And then you're also not having any sex together and let's face it like ninety percent of our sources external fodder gone date nights. Movie is concerts shows. You know parties with friends double the all that is just poof. So the fun is on you. Don't have kind of that third person which is fun in your thirties fun we were all having a threesome with fun and now. Kobe fuck to go yeah. Three is gone. There's no fun. I have four concerts. I was going to the last few wherever people have tons of things that are missing. But I'm like Oh yes. Oh my calendar. I'm like Oh that's not happening and so get finding this morning. Also look a little bit of taking the pressure off ourselves so it might look like how it was before the other thing is that sex is making sure that you have intimacy like redefining what that means to. Because maybe it's not it's not just the old in and out like there's other ways to redefine redefining readjusting to what it actually is. Now under the Circumstances Send Sans Fun. Yeah and you of your questions because a lot of couples are like will how do I broach that? Like you know my husband he. He's penetration every time he wants to finish in the same way every time but I'm not be into that but I still wanNA connect intimately and the question to talk about is how can we co create a sex life that feels compassionate and exciting right now and I always say the right now is are the most important two words collaborates pretty important but the most important towards tensions because right now looks so different than two months ago and hopefully looked so different than maybe two or four or six months. A had so right now intimacy can mean something different and can we be compassionate about each other and about what each other needs and wants and you know one another's boundaries right now or willingness and then it becomes a collaborative conversation instead of a pressure and rejection cycle. But you know is really easy to fall in. Do you actually pay are communicating more right now. Unless you have those skills we still get frustrated and hate our partners. So what are some ways of couples sitting? Have this the ones that we already thinking might be heading towards divorce? Are there any ways that you found that you guys have been able to deal with resentment resentments? Per How do we really Resentment just become devastating relationships. Resentments are always talking about resentment. And how that's like the biggest Libido Keller on it's on the side of the spectrum from attraction and affection one so that means let me say that again. That's great hold on. I Want Dana Myers. Resentment is the other side of attraction. Like if you're resenting your power. They didn't help they didn't do this. They didn't chopin time. They're not doing all the things that you're pissed about. You're not going to be attracted to them like candles it out. It's like pulling pouring water on your attraction. They out the fire of your taxes went out. Okay I love that. So what the hell do we not be resentful others still waiting reason? Why already rocking about resentment and your relationship. If it's not already a hot conversation in your relationship you've gotta bring it up and you've got us a you know. I'm feeling resentment if I'm feeling it I imagine you're feeling it back to me as well right. You always have to hold up the mirror and make sure you're not being the Dick who doesn't look at ourselves and and you say I'm feeling unsupported. Would you help me with the kids every Saturday and just really think? What is it that I need to help? Reduce the resentment. Is it more childcare? It more help around the house being really specific about your needs and I always say this tool. I'm sure I've said on your show and asking saying would you or will you because it hoses an opportunity for to partner to be your hero instead of saying. Can you just take the kids for an hour? And they're like Huckabee. You never take the kids right just like well. Of course I can questioning my ability. It doesn't give them a choice. Would you of yeah? Of course I will and it's craven direct and you start airing out your resentments. Asking for help in a proactive way. In a way that your partner can respond positively to and then you start getting that help and then you say okay. What can I do? How can I make your life better? You say that in return and once you get that conversation going you start to air out some big resentment and then what I say is just do a resentment check in once or twice a month and that's just like hey I'm resenting you because of this and it could be the silliest things like I swear to God or Charlie as I am resenting you because I do not like the way. You are voting the silverware into the dishwasher and I want it loaded this way and Asher twice in your neck doing it my wigan. I'm really that's annoying nothing more than that. What he's saying. Thank you but at the same time harboring resentment on it is even more annoying than the fact that they're in. They're in the wrong way. So just getting out and with practice your partner hint start to receive that without being defensive and then you can also start to receive their feedback without being defensive. And then suddenly you're just airing it out and you're able to move on fight fast. You forgive you move on air out the resentment you move on all right. We're GONNA take a quick break and we come back. Even more.

"And I go. Hey like I absolutely love I. Don't go out of town. I just drive here and it runs as good as any curve ever driven. I started a few years ago around the bicycle and found out real quick. It's doing it for exercise. Found out real quick. It was a little bit difficult for me to do so. I started building. Electric Bicycles. Technology is here and some of the things that we can do. Today are so absolutely unbelievable. I enjoy I enjoy. Look it out and going like you know. They're they're talking about the electrification is coming. Sure it is show you get check the news? They're going to be places in the very near future at least in your laptop that you're not going to be able to buy a car that you're gonNA stop input gasoline in that in your lap. Tom will go away. I was with my daughter the other day and I said in your lap Tom. You will live in a house one day. That will not have any wires. Go into it. You will not have to worry about your electric bill because that power cord coming off. That poll to your house is not going to be there and people go what stupid. That's crazy. Well you don't have a telephone land you don't have a you know you can get TV without a without a land. Power is going to be like that as well. So we've got to look at those things you know Do I love racing like it used to be. Yeah got it. And here's the other thing. I look back at some of the greatest races in the history of the sport and I go. They were great then. That race may not be so great right now of my greatest examples. Another told you this. I don't have the numbers in front of me but I invite anybody out there to go look it up. We always talk about some of the fifty greatest races ever in the history of Nascar Nineteen seventy-six Daytona. Five hundred is one of them. Richard Petty David Pearson come into the land and everybody gets a lot. That race was great. And when you do realize that David Pearson was the only car on the lead lap and again. I know he wasn't. Oh Yeah. Richard didn't make it all the way back. Do you know that the third-place guy was was a lap down? The fourth place guy was two laps down. The fifth place guy was like sick. Look it up the math place guy in the nineteen seventy six Daytona five hundred thirteenth. Once again. I don't have in front of me. Richard childress either finished ninth or tenth and he was either nine or ten laps down so if that happens today nobody goes to next race. So it's a whole lot better today. In my opinion that happens today people would lose their minds. Even though you already do well the other thing and thank you for reminding me of that in a roundabout way. There was a time that we raised on Sunday. I was fortunate. I lived in Winston Salem so the Winston Salem newspaper because RJ Reynolds was here or the Charlotte newspaper. Because it's in the hub of NASCAR. But we got a story Monday morning. If you lived in Omaha probably waited 'til Thursday till the national speed. Sport came to get the racing news today. You get it every sacked and by the way when. I say that you get the knees. Well you get a little bit of knees mixed in with everybody's opinion. I love social media to use it as a tool Because I found out that gives me instant news if you look at it the right way or but you can't just go and go up you know it's like the other day give you a great example. My Wife says. Did you know that coal pearn quit? Now where'd you hear that? She said on twitter he about who right and she said Joe Gibbs and what if this was Tommy? You're Billy Bob. Put that story over. I'm going to do a little research right. So it was social media. Today it has get it. We all basically have a backstage pass when it's used as a tool resource. It's great going back to serious starting on the show you mentioned took a while for you to really kind of jump in and be not wait for your cure so to speak so around one time when you started doing it on a regular basis. Did you really start to feel comfortable in your role? Hang on the radio and saying what you wanted to say and not feeling like a guest. I don't know months into it. Here's the other thing. That's absolutely unbelievable that you have to learn a minute as a long long long time. You think it's only going to be a minute. Look at your clock. Stop what you're doing or even better yet start to make a story and you start and you make. That story lasts for one minute. It's a little bit more difficult than you think. And then to get that Q in your ear one minute or thirty seconds thirty seconds and then you think you first. You'd hear thirty seconds. You've got well folks. Thank you very much for listening. And then you find out. Well wait a minute. I still got twenty eight seconds left so figuring out that America's longtime interviewer you know sometimes most folks will say that's a hard job right always trying to come up with questions and make sure you're not stuttering or you're clearly are asking what you want to say when it comes to when you guys have guests and you know you're going to be talking to the driver crew chief team owner. What's your approach to asking questions and trying to figure out what you really WanNa know. You Know I. I'll do a little research. I found out I if I don't know right. I do a little research. Find Out in what they've done in the past. Find out all the details right and then you want to or at least I wanna have one of those funny stories or something to go along with it to lighten the mood up yesterday. Here on the Channel We had Harrison Burton. And of course we're talking to him. You know I know. Because what's the kid grow up and I know most of and then we get to a point. I said son. I know that your mom and dad did a lot to help you get here but I'm not so sure how much more your mom's going to be able to take now a see her on the pit box. I don't know where Your Dad's Hadden. I don't know whether he's as bad as she is or not. But you know you want it to be personal you want to raise fan. Look the the race fans can look up and see where they finished. But you wanted to how to get there. How did that car handle? What did you tell them to make that car a little bit? Better one last thing before we go in the museum so we're sitting here. Is We mentioned in your office amazing? I've never had a chance until now. Really look at it. What are some cool things you can tell everybody about what you have here in your office? You have race. Poster Area Cardboard cutouts of course trophies. And now you're the cast of your dad's car. What are some other things that stand out mccullers? Twins is of course. I was Grand Marshal bomb-grade Stadium. There's an Obama Graham trophy trophy there. That's really cool. Because it has an. I don't know what happened. But it says Bobby Myers Bobby Myers Curtis Turner in Bobby Myers. I don't know whether it was like whoever won. The most racist got the trophy. I I don't know but that goes back in the day. I used to collect cranked phonograph. Right so that is a victory. That's over one hundred years old. That plays unbelievable. The Gaskin in the corner. That's off color that is supposed to be bronze. The couldn't get bronzed. But when I came to work for Richard childress. Yeah he teased a little. Bit Hiccup Hey man. I may not make you rich. But I'll make you famous so when I got off the road. Richard had that put on the gas. Can I may not make you rich but I'll make you famous. So that's in here and just you know family photos Oma posters. I love the real stuff right and I found these things. A guy called me one day and said Hey Do you remember ankle? I said I absolutely and I was my buddy. I worked with him while while we were clean his house at and we were up in the attic and evidently every time he went to a race. He took a poster down off. The I call them circus posters. But they'd be on the side of the barn on telephone pole so all these posters are probably from nineteen sixty nine and then I saw one the other day on on facebook and I sent a message that I went dude. I've been wanting to Darlington poster forever and so got a southern five hundred poster. The others back here kind of cool to there's one over shelby and that's Kinda Fun because you look at it and it says race directed by Bruton Smith. It's nineteen fifty six so just cool stuff. Just Costa pitchers of Dale of course seventy fifth anniversary Chevrolet clock. You know so. There are over one hundred now. That's been in here for a while every once in a while I'll have to come back indeed debris and of course we've got the raccoon that's hiding behind a berm. Many of these left this was when we had the All Star Race. Few years go and we did the tires with the different Tyre compounds. I kept me on a green lettered. Goodyear yes that was from when we did. You could have the softer that's right. They weren't solved enough. I love the plan but I think that we needed plan a little bit more. Yeah I remember that. That was one of the topics I remember. A few of US discussed. Afterwards it was a great idea but I think what the temperature and just the roads that it just didn't turn out as hope. Alright chocolates. Pause this and wander around the museum and we'll talk about Dale and everything about over here on the campus all of that before we get to the second part of the interview. I have to put in an editor's note when chocolate and I walked museum and started talking. I realized about a minute or two in that I'd hit the wrong button on my recorder and the tape wasn't rolling so what we had started to talk about was whether it was hard chocolate to walk through the museum and be surrounded by all those black number three cars and started that part of the conversation by telling chocolate why the first time I ever came into the museum. It was motion for me to see those cars for those who don't know I became a NASCAR. Fan following EARNHARDT's death. His passing was something that I like. Many others continually heard about and it drew me to the sport. The very first race I watched was the July two thousand one race at Daytona. I've always said that an unfortunate situation. One of the sports darkest days is what brought me to NASCAR and shared that with chocolate when asking him if it was hard to walk into the museum as it was for me are audio and conversation picks up with chocolate talking about that. I look back today. I think about it more today than I did. Then because back then it was just a blur you either racing or testing all the time. You don't have much time for anything but to be able to put this back the way that it used to be your as close as we could get whether it used to be..

"Promoting the sport and then we did something really cool by walking and talking through the museum for anyone. Who is Dale Earnhardt Fan? You are going to want to hear the stories and nuggets. The chocolate has from the museum. If you've never been in the museum I highly recommend planning a trip and I think after you hear this interview. You will be very intrigued to want to do that. Enjoy a fun. Conversation with chocolate Myers on the racing writers podcasts. My goodness chocolate almost had me in tears before we started this telling me that great story about those cars you got. Do you want to repeat it again or because it's something that I'm really proud of and not only that but a lot of other things and and look I've been the most blessed human being alive I think because You know people come by they. Bring me things that mean something to me. Everything means something to me. We had a guy that worked here one time. That was the guy that mode alone kept up. The parking lot. Did some things like that. And he's a great brand and a guy that didn't have a whole lot and always tried to happy Matt Christmas. You know. Get him a little something. You know just something that meant something to him and he came to me one time and he said. I got you a Christmas present as man. You don't need to get me a Christmas present. I knew he couldn't afford it right. And he gives me a stick with a ribbon tied around it and he had a little note on it and it said chocolate. This is a yardstick a founded in my yard. He said but you can have hours of enjoyment out of it. He said it works great to check the gas in your lawn. More he said. Heck you can throw it and get your dog to bring it back. That stick is in a showcase right now with the nineteen ninety four Winston Cup trophy because it meant something to me right and I get attached and things like that because I'm a people person but you mentioned the cars go back because and I'll give the whole story here in a minute but you know my childhood which stint at the greatest place in the world. That was Bowman Gray Stadium. It was winston-salem North Carolina. My Dad race there. My Dad was a champion. There we live close to there so after my dad lost his lap. Nineteen fifty seven Darlington. A lot of you know that you know. My Dad was one of the early Pioneers Nascar. We were able to walk to Bowman Gray Stadium. Rather BICYC- get my mom detecting so we grew up Bowman Gray Stadium and by being there I met a lot of the legends of the sport. Heck we used to have cup racing at Bowman Gray Stadium. Yeah they had the Myers Brothers Memorial race at Bowman Gray stadium for many many years Started in nineteen fifty eight And I think it went up to seventy one or seventy two. It was the last race. That Bobby Allison. It's the disputed rice. All the disputed is disputed rice. That was the last Myers Brothers Memorial race at bomb-grade said I'm not for that reason but because they were just Things to be worked out but anyway you know growing up as a kid going to bomb gray stadium when I was twelve years old which has been a long time ago about sixty years ago to be quite honest with you. I went there one night and there was a display for a twelve year. Old Kid to see a display with model cars. It was in. This display was made by Ghana. I've researched all this and I've had him here and I've talked to him. His name was Hilton and Hilton. He's getting up there in age right now. Hilton is in his eighties But Hilton had been to the military came home and decided. Because he was Bobby Myers Fan. He build a model car of every car that that he remembered my dad driving. And unlike today right you went to the race. If your car wouldn't run somebody would say we'll just drive mine right so there was a lot of cars different cars that he drove belong to different people and this is against sixty years ago. All of the technology was not out there. You you didn't get on the Internet in order you some stickers right you had to make it so anyway. They were gone for sixty years and a few months ago. Here I got a phone call from a lady. Her name is Betty Everson and Betty one. If I remembered her sure I did and she won't enough. I knew about her husband. His name was junior Persson. He was a dear friend of my dad is a matter of fact. He Double dated with my dad when they were kids but junior love. My Dad junior ended up with these cars. junior Later on had a car dealership down in eastern barred North Carolina moved down to the coast but he had passed away and she said you know the last thing that he told me was. Make sure that you get these cars and for her to bring these to me meant the world to me. She said all I want you to do is let people know where they came from. And I won't people to be able to see them and I said well if I got them. They're going to see them. Right goes on. I'm there I love the show this stuff off. I don't want to hoard it. I don't want to hide it. But she called me. She said I've got those cars here in once inside Lebanon at work at a meet you and she said she was going by the cemetery and I said what cemetery and she told me so. I met her cemetery in Winston Salem. And she's giving me the cars and I'm getting a little choked up because it was pretty emotional because I told her I said you don't know how appropriate is a because my dad's buried right there my dad and once again when we're talking about this my dad's headstone has a NASCAR insignia. Or the old NASCAR ALMOST GONNA tear up. That's just a wonderful story. Have you done? You mentioned showing them off. Have you done? I know on the show on trading paint. You Do Hump Day. She'll tell. Have you done that yet? With the cars kind of hard to do. I don't remember whether we've done show entail. I try to keep it relevant to what's going on at the racetrack so last week. We're able to do a vowel stem. Right it's getting hard to do and the reason it's getting hard to do and and once again I talk about that I'm a traditionalist but yet I'm a realist. E I love what's going on but we've got so smart and so good these racecourse don't have problems anymore. I don't if that's a problem or not I don't know and once again here we are. We're doing this interview a couple of days after we just left California. But we're doing it like ten days after we went to Vegas at Vegas. We had an unusual amount of cautions there and we talked about how great the race was at. Fontana will hardly had any conscience other than stay head one other than stage breaks. And we're sitting here going like we needed a little bit more. Look I used this for a great example and I don't use this to offend anybody. I just you. This is my opinion. I look at what we're doing today and understand what we're doing today right Because things happen change everything has to change but I go back to my roots. Go back to Bowman Gray Stadium and I've said this for a long time Bowman Gray Stadium Right. Now is the only weekly series racetrack They're still running. It's started in nineteen forty eight. They steal race there on Saturday nights during the season they still pack the grandstands. And I'll look at that and I go shouldn't just be a great example now. The racing is not that good not that good but the excitement and drama is out of this world. I don't know of anybody that goes to Bowman Gray stadium to watch cars go round circle but I know everybody. That goes along gray stadium to see what happens when you're in somebody's way now. My other example of that as I look at Bristol Right. I look at Bristol and I go and I love the folks up there and I think they're doing an awesome job now of trying to manipulate the race track with all the things that they're doing now I think they're doing a good job with it. I think everybody found out and the drivers have gotta take some responsibility. They wanted that racetrack fixed. Nobody went to Bristol to see three wide racing. They went to Bristol to see. Tommy or billy bob or dale or rusty or Jay off move that other guy way to get around him and look. I'm the excitement and drama Guy Right. I love the excitement and drama. So I think that we've got a lot of lessons out there to be learned now going back to what we're seeing now once again. It's Kinda to argue about what we're getting because Vegas was unbe speedway racing as always unbelievable always. I love it Vegas unbelievable last week. Maybe not as much. I still enjoyed it too so I like what we're doing when I came in. I said Hi Chocolate High Chalk. That's what everybody knows you. Chocolate Myers. How often are you called Danny Anymore? Amid a guy this weekend that. Niimi is Danny he said I kinda feel kind of weird no chocolate because I never knew you as chocolate but this was a guy that knew when we were like eight or nine years old seven eight or nine years so anyway. I'll go on and tell the story because I would imagine that's GonNa be next. Where did you get the name you know the story? I don't like asking questions but if you would like to tell it for those who don't know you are more than welcome to greatest man in the world or at least one of them. Henry Ford Not Henry Ford of the Ford Car Guy. His name his name was Henry Ford. He was my my little league football coach. Right where you go out and get those life lessons right you get the fundamentals. You really didn't know how to play football. You just run up and down to feel you had a good time but oh Henry Ford threw the ball to me and I stayed out the sun. All the time had this dark complexion and he said catch the ball chocolate. Drop it and all the other kids out. It was the funniest thing that ever heard so they started calling me chocolate. And here I am. My mom went to the PTA meeting one time at. He'll junior high school and she told the teacher she said. I think my son's in your class and the teacher said what's your son's name and my mother said my sons Danny Meyer's and she said the only Myers has chocolate. Meyer so it. It stuck pretty pretty well stuck around for quite a while so you. It doesn't matter what people call you. You don't it's not. It's not a thing where it bothers you that is it does not bother me. I had a guy come in a museum but met me at the racetrack one day and he walked up to him in there. We are working right. We had our goodrich. Uniforms only walks up and he says. Hey Buddy you guys have a guy on your team named chocolate Myers and I said we do. He said which one is. It was actually me. Hey said you don't remember may no and evidently you don't remember me either so things like that that happen every once in a while people will know you from that three-team of course learn heart. The flying aces junkyard dogs. I'm sure you guys had many nicknames. Over the years and we all know Dale's numbers. We know great. Dale is but for you personally. What are some of your personal highlights from your time going over the wall? So I'll tell you the greatest one really you know as a kid growing up wanted to be a race car driver because my dad was a racecar driver is a kid growing up and having those childhood dreams. I dreamed when they being a great race car driver in going to Darlington where my dad lost his life and went into southern five hundred. I never accomplish that as a racecar driver but when we were able to win the southern five hundred for the first time probably one of the most emotional things ever for me really to be able to do that but then going on and you know one of the things that I you know. I never talked about this for a long time because I never thought about it. We want every qualifying race in the ninety S. We want them all. If you go back to data and look at the record books in the qualifying races at Daytona won all of them in the nineties. That was incredible to win the Daytona five hundred and having my family with me to win at the brickyard and have my family with me pretty cool Daytona and we just talked about this the other day on the radio and I tell everybody daytonas really not that big a deal. It's it's not any different than any other racetrack and to you in it and then it changes everything right because you know you want it but you don't want to tell everybody how bad you want it but to go there so many times and be so close you know. The first time I went there was here in eighty four to go down and race with this group. We went down to eighty four and Dale had come back to archie or and this is a time you went to the racetrack. You Kate every engine and gear that you had and we went there and like always we were pretty good but it was the practice engine then the qualifying engine then the the race motor. Then put the practice motor back. I mean we changed motor. We did everything and we finally felt like we were pretty good and we had that last practice on Saturday. Right happy are they used to call it. We go out and we run that card for the very last time. Now we gotta do after this going to run the car get one more lap in. We're GONNA WE'RE GONNA get plugged check and look this spark plugs. And then we'RE GOING TO BE SET..

"Kevin left what you sometimes see what you've seen other organizations in the league there is like a real animosity that you can feel from the team who feels shunned who feels let down own we did all we could for you you appreciate it it's it's always felt to me that the warriors made it made a decision and I think it speaks to you said the relationships there was none of that when Kevin left it almost seemed a little bit I wanna say you were at peace with it because you wanted him the eh but I I don't know that you were shocked that he left that it seemed like he just wanted something else and there was more just gratitude we won the titles together we had a historic success and a lot of ways and we're we're glad you're part of it it felt like that's how you guys looked at it when he walked out the door I think bout was exactly what it was I think when you know obviously we all want to win we're super competitive and most importantly we all have a job to do which is to win games and try to win championships and booties arenas like we all have an obligation but more importantly to us is the human side of it and none of us WanNa see Kevin here if he's not happy we want to see him do the absolute best possible thing for Kevin because also yeah Kevin can stay here and if he's unhappy will still win because we'll still be really good but we're not going to be happy right and nobody wanted to go through that environment anymore want that and so it he thinks there's something on the other side for him more power to him do we want the absolute best for him and whatever that thing is we all hope it works out because at the end day on the other side of this thing everybody loves basketball is the life that you live on a daily basis in and if you're not happy on daily basis forget the basketball who cares about tat like what about your daily happiness and for him to make in like that we we all know is not basketball like we won and had he been on Florida finals we would've won again so clearly is in basketball so because it's not a can't be it's impossible to basketball with the success that we had so you just wish and want the best for your brother and and that's what it was from here I think a lot of teams that you know show that light when when a guy leave or you know feels like they've been messed over they usually have an accomplished what they thought they should've accomplish or they set out to accomplish because when the Brian James Lead Cleveland the first time all hell broke loose he left a second time when everyone said thanks why because they accomplished what they said right to accomplish and so now it's like you've done your duty great do what you WanNa do with your life well yeah we did our duty but more importantly do what you WanNa do life because it's your life and we want to see the absolute best for you in that light German you mentioned Lebron leaving Cleveland going to Miami like I don't know of Kevin Durant comes to golden state if Lebron hadn't made that decision and then Kevin comes here and you win big he comes onto a team net had historic success wins record there before and had lost two in the playoffs and it feels like those two decisions in this has decade you talk about like that term player empowerment what exactly it means does it feel like what you guys went through gold state has opened the door maybe fully open like anybody can go anywhere they want for any reason without fear of repercussions the perception like this summer showed that even a little more that this group and the Lebron a lot of credit for that going to Miami changed but your team did to me validated decision player wants to make Gulford oh for sure I mean like you said Lebron kind of started this whole thing going to Miami and it just gave players a different type of power when they did that because you know it was just like Oh you're not in control of my few controlling my future you're not going to tell me what I can is frowned upon before it creates change and then it just Kinda went on a time when on then he went back and then all of a sudden Tevin came here and I think that really opened the floodgates so Lebron created the change for sure and definitely spearheaded and gave players power players ever had before and then Kevin being star Kevin is and and not only leaving okay see but actually come into a team that had just WANNA NBA Finals. they lost in game seven and one seventy three games that was kind of that final stamp of do what you want with your future and and whatever you think the right move is for you do exactly that and you know when you look at the summer all these guys don't try to get to the situation they want to go to and Kawhi Leonard definitely does not leave Toronto after winning an NBA championship if all of those things previously does not happen and uh Kevin does not lead wars and go to Brooklyn of all of those things previously doesn't happen you've been on the other side of it Bob Agent for longer than even you've been GM president it you've seen the evolution in this league from an and you represented star players you're too big company that Tracy McGrady who moved and lots of big players here's how different does this league feel now than even even five or six seven years ago yes leagues different so as soon is so is life like my dad worked for one company whole life if I was scared to leave you know didn't know if you get another job thirty years I mean guys worked in factories they weren't looking around for letter but but when we evaluate anybody in life I think the best way I heard it I just read somebody said just because you don't understand doesn't mean they're confused and I think you could apply that to anybody in basketball was this guy doing doing that because you don't get it doesn't mean he doesn't get it so for whatever reason whether it's a player anybody who am I to be so arrogant to think like he needs to do this I don't his life I don't know what makes this guy happy or unhappy why would I presume that I do and I think that's the hardest part being in the public eye not me but like dream on or even well known I think how do I ignore what will be said and live my life in the era where the media is bigger than it's ever been where your life is either on social media or people commenting on you or you've got we're following you everywhere you go and you don't know if you should do that or if you shouldn't or if you should have twitter counter instagram or should I post this post that or what if I say this I commend anybody that says like this is what I want to do because that's all we're going to do for your whole damn life is figure out the answers to those questions how do I best move in a direction makes me happy and I don't know anything else to anybody and if it doesn't please you whoever you are media fans I'm sorry because I have a choice can choose to please you choose to please me and it doesn't make me bad or good it just means I'm doing my best to go to bed at night and raise my family and be a good human being because I won't be unless I follow this gut instinct so what I think we as a society do a good job of is is taking a step back insane hang on a second here and especially with athletes do I have at me joke around about this like you I don't even know what it's like let's say dream on drives home to my house today it just goes to the supermarket if I if I put my cell he put what is that like the what if these guys that can you even walkouts let's just start there so then I'm going to sit here and say well we shouldn't do this or that when I have no idea what it's like to just walk outside to go to a movie to go to my family's house they treating me differently to speak publicly as much as they do nobody knows that stuff I'll never know all the time I see it I've seen it with our team who the hell am I to think that I can understand that so then you start there and go okay now I'm GonNa not only not understand that but then I'm GonNa tell this guy what he should or shouldn't do that's a pretty arrogant outlook but we do that all the time this guy is crazy how's he holding out you talking about anybody Andrew Luck retire like what's wrong with this guy what do you mean what's wrong what if he's happier now than he's ever been is that a problem but the problem is more for players now is no because of the Games they are the driver of all this but the issue is that how do you move through all that as a player when technically the fans own you to a certain extent but if you let that happen are you gonna be happy so it's kind of a cycle so I think when you watch players the ability to persevere when you always think I'm out of here I'm GonNa go there some of it's great because you have confidence in yourself you know what I'm GonNa try this out we're just trying to live full lives and make mistakes like maybe one of these players maybe me maybe any of us man that was stupid why the hell they do that but at the time it felt I think that's all you can really do draymond you could have gone into free agency next summer you did the deal in July four years four and you could have waited and waited till next year to do it is that a conversation you and Bob have you enjoy lake have before even your agent it's involved in it or because of the history how how do you guys do that with our history it is definitely a conversation that we have Before How do you want me to handle it and I said great thank you and you enrich can handle it from there and that's what they did survey and then Bob landed back like maybe Wednesday evening Thursday and rituals like all right and then we go from there that idea Max contract there is just something there is a I know I could afford but what was more important to me was what our team will look like moving forward and.

"Center for what I think is a remarkable oribiting our plus because to the architects of this Golden State Warriors. maybe a finals of three championships seven years together as president and the thirty fifth overall pick in the draft who became an all star in this league you and we talked about everything from Kevin Durant to the hard conversations that have to happen between management and players and how relationships carry the day through a championship run like the warriors have had and bond Bob Myers Draymond Green Steph Curry Klay Thompson a really remarkable window into this warriors dynasty here's Draymond Green and Bob Myers here in the new chase center in San Francisco with Draymond Green Bob Myers the I I've done a few podcasts I've had two coaches rival coaches have had a a GM coach have not had a GM and star player with the history you to have so so I thanks for doing this guys before we started here Bob Walker into the room had just overheard what going on on facetime outside in the hallway by that we both got young kids so I was marveling at how he communicates with his his his little boy and I was wondering if I could use some of that language he started uh he's laying out on the floor cry so I said Hey dj can get up please and he just looks at me so say Dj you to get up off the floor and then he may get up but he may not he does everything on all the time he's a pretty interesting kid what what is it like learn ice too so it's still the early part of this but even at that age like they're going to emulate what you say what you do remember friend of mine was a college coach his wife was giving him grief because his kid was coming home and taking his jacket off and throwing it on the floor and throwing it on the floor because you watch his father do it coaching so he's pulling his jacket off and throwing it around the house she's like see what you do like are you more cognizant now of a little bit absolutely have to be he he he watches everything that I do and he tries to emulate it you know we were we were at my daughter's birthday party couple days ago and and she had to send his birth they party so they had to characters running around and he is terrified at a character so men and women play one of the Games and we were planning to soccer gaming each other uh and I scored a goal and I clap my hands like yes and he looked at me and every time he thought he did something I probably beat them for two zero not allowed to beat my daughter's name and scored I told him it was him scoring though so every time and he Optus hands every time I say yes just like obviously a small thing but he likes to emulate everything I do so you definitely have to be aware of what you say and what you do dramatic Bob like when you guys think of when you both walked into the Warriors Bob when you drafted drew it was real your first full draft as the GM call from the agents side you guys are over in Oakland you come into the thirty fifth pick in the draft like you don't even know what GM did all day you were figuring out what what does it do all day right like you should understand that like when you guys think about where you were in your lives where the organization was your across the bay it became a like a rock tour around here it was not that in two thousand and twelve if you WANNA use that analogy we were we were band playing the the local you're with a smattering of applause you know we were putting fires on the telephone post to say come watch US play and talking to family and friends and saying we're we're pretty good and and we might be better and then if you want to continue that it became you know by the end of it all it was idioms by the end of it all it was stadiums playing which is what you're alluding to it became more than I mean when I took the job as I told my wife I said so you're gonNA be media it's the worst nobody who's I said I feel like I thought that we were getting I was getting the keys to drive like a Volvo or an accurate not that those are bad cars but you know there's a lot of those on the road and I thought nobody turn their heads and then by the end of it is like a Ferrari and those things are harder to fast shining and everybody's looking at it when you park and you drive and but yeah man that's a that's a longer podcasts until the story of those over many years for me when I think back to we were coming in when I when I got drafted we're coming off twenty three win season and everything we need to be top five defense we have to improve our defense I do indeed offensive drills every day a month and a half before training Camp Darren Ermolai into trying to build and then continue moved Award and we're starting to season. I remember like we were passing out tickets on the streets of Oakland like we passed out tickets on the bar right given free tickets away and who would be busy we won't be able to go and now you know always a good crowd but people were turning down free tickets my rookie you and now I complain about the the price of how to play for tickets when did it start to feel like this is getting big this feeling bigger than than it was when when do you remember sort of like the point that it wasn't like the Acura warriors of the bar handing out tickets warriors anymore I don't know for for him I mean the first year was that set the first championship was not I couldn't I still don't understand it I mean it was overwhelmingly surreal so I didn't feel like we felt I didn't feel mentioned our team then I won't Draymond was Draymond Green we know today and I certainly wasn't nobody knew Kerr came in with some credentials but Steph wasn't Steph play wasn't clay but then in the next year seventy three one year I think that's when it started that's when it began like this is for people to care that much about regular season and the style of play something happened where obviously winning and spring boarding and being even better than the next regular season but I didn't feel it as a player I don't know what was like for me as a player I'm like Bob said the two thousand fifteen season we wanted to find out we were just wrapped up into having fun there was as good a year we would have and there was no expectation on us to win the finals and by the way we met Lebron James in the finals of course like Lebron supposed to win where the new guys on the block and you just enjoy it and it was just surreal like Bob set two thousand sixteen even coming into this season like everyone said oh the cows hurting out of progress who else at this point but these guys were hurting the Asterik was that the asteroid everybody wants to put an asterisk on that one and I remember starting off the seasonal just like wow they're really going to discredit our championship okay and I remember I I can't remember those game nine or eleven we've played the clippers in La and they were like twenty points I didn't play their games and we want and that's what matter of fact it was gave me Levin or third somewhere in there and that's when it was like wow these guys are serious and it went from that to wait how many games in a row three and you walk in the practice and it's on a song Tuesday's ninety media members at practice is when I started to feel different and it's like Whoa some lot going on you lead that charge I think certainly verbally more than anybody that you wanted that bowls record percents because I think when you got a chance to make history you you make history like you don't just give up an opportunity to make history I mean it's like we can play as good as we wanna plan put together as a team want it's not easy to win seventy three games a ton of things got it go right you start talking about health you know how to schedule plays out sometimes you get scheduled losses like you started talking about all of those things and how it really plays out it's not easy to do and I felt like we had a golden opportunity needed to do it and we ended up taking advantage of it but that was definitely something that I thought was very important and really wanted to accomplish how much organization that year Bob did you guys have to talk about are we keeping the foot on the pedal do we want to rest guys do we. It's important to the players let's do it or we've got to think we've got to make decisions that they might not agree with for the longer run how much of that went on is that your went on not as much as you might see and other I mean I only know what we do I've only worked for one team he's the only play for one team you know we've always tried to St is this I try to do this team somebody team my my daughter-in-law pieces you work all day daddy don't you just pick the players there's a lot of gaps you'd fill in but but it's not my team and I didn't play in the NBA but I'd always the way it was easy for me and I think Steve was who am I even though I have this title to tell Draymond Green or anybody you can't go for this record which is in a sense saying don't try to win every game you play you can spend a lot of different ways but you can ask dream on I don't I know there's a narrative that that's why we lost the championship that's I don't think that's why we lost I mean people might say that to make themselves feel better but we get one we got beat fine feel like you get tired winning any championships I didn't ask him I mean they're all exhausting I don't know that that one was more exhausting the cavs were exhausted to game seven I mean they they couldn't make a shot I got one of the best players ever to play on their team he nobody could we all looked and how much I appreciated the level from both teams forget about our team their team like guys just leaving every ounce on floor and ever thought well if we do not played you know not gone for that record we would win this I didn't feel that other people can say whatever they want that's what I thought I don't think that's remotely close to being in truth Everything that needed to go wrong for us to lose their championship went wrong and you know just how to cookie crumbles sometimes and you know you live with those results but if seventy three ways is what costs us their championship we don't get took three one by the way historically you get through one you win so it clearly wasn't the seventy three games a lot of things took place and you got to get it Oh gosh credit no they made the place when they need to make the plays to win the championship but I know for me personally as a player two thousand sixteen wasn't remotely close to the most exhausting run in these five years that we have not even close was it because there are the years that were more mentally taxing than physically it seemed like there were more issues that might have taken more emotionally out of you than playing minutes is that why one hundred percent you think about it from this perspective we are some of the best athletes in the world that trained that way and and you train.

"To you replicate so yeah economic modes come in many different flavors and summer emphasized more importantly at earlier stages in the business than later you mentioned and switching costs and switching costs are something that almost every software company actually has whether you're talking about a database base or a cloud service provider or Jira all of these things seemed to have switching costs built-in and it makes me wonder if if you have switching costs built and almost every software product by default it almost seems like the moat is inherent in the software business so every every software business seems to have at least some form of Moat built in would you agree with that doesn't extent. I would agree with that sentiment and I mean I think it's just the magnitude of the again as I said at the end of the comment you know you can have deep or widened. It's if you look at enterprise enterprise software. They have paying customers. They obviously have some degree of Moat. They are incumbent in the account. The team likes the solution to some degree. It's GONNA be harder for a new SAS business to come in and replacement that doesn't mean it can't be done but it will be harder to me. The larger businesses is that really achieve incredible customer traction and number of users have a deeper and stronger moats guarding switching costs than others right going back to the Jira example people have this as a core software solution Russian in their software development life cycle. Everyone knows how to use it. It has become the standard for the industry. They first innovated done. They built hi switching costs becomes standard so people expect to have it in count to need that level of switching cost is really rare but something that we look for when we're congesting companies. You're an infrastructure investor and in infrastructure. There are these spaces. This was part of the Genesis for the show that we're doing doing. Now is the spaces where it's not winner. Take all like you have a very big space like CIC D. or log management or or is as in the case of op Sony. which was the thing that triggered our recent conversation cloud cost management? There's I've seen five or ten in cloud cost management companies. I've seen five or ten logging companies that have been successful. There's plenty of CIC DE companies now as a venture capital firm. You need to have large returns and I guess the positive take on these super competitive markets. Is You know maybe if you're talking about a highly competitive market and you make an investment in log management company. You've got a better chance at coming out with like a break even kind of scenario or getting your returns back in the case that you don't end up getting the category winner so to speak but because the market is big enough you can sustain kind of a break even sort of return but as a venture capital firm. That's actually almost a loss for you. You're looking for the really big returns to tell me how venture capital firm thinks about the highly competitive markets yes so I would argue that most of the investments we do our in companies. Is it play in competitive markets to some degree right. There's kind of two flavors of competitive markets. We think about kind of all these were a small number umbro firms none of which have that much product differentiation but had heavy influence in each other dominate so when I'm thinking about those it industries you know usually have the top five vendors in the space representing over fifty percent market share some oligopolies that I used to work with. We're kind of in the storage storage industry you know the old world of EMC net up pure storage there are only few competitors but they had high influence on each other and then the second category we think about in terms of competition as monopolistic competition so I think this is the segment you're referring to issues a whole bunch firms all selling very similar products but they're not perfect substitutes so observability and CIC. D- are great examples of that a lot of those. We've categorized twenty plus vendors in them when we are in each yes and age twenty plus offerings offerings and so these hyper competitive markets you're right. They can be much more challenging but we as investors don't shy away from them. There are a few reasons one is because you know if you're actually operating in a market. That doesn't have that many competitors. You have to ask yourself yourself. Why is it that this isn't really a pain. Point is that the technology hasn't evolved degree needs to to support your business. People just not have budget so we do like to see competition and the super competitive markets we try to focus on the economic We just discussed particular around the technology. Is there a read platforming on backend systems occurring that your observability solution can take advantage of better than anyone else moving from on premise to the public cloud or moving onto cooper netease. Is there a aspect of your technology that makes it faster to build and more comprehensive than other solutions like some data points that I like are that get lab did a new software feature release once a month on every twenty second day to show momentum. My understanding is that other businesses is like drifted the same thing so are you rapidly evolving your solution which makes customers excited so they gravitate to you in spite fight of it being in a competitive marketplace so for us competitive markets or nothing to shy away from we like them but as a founder you really have to think through your economic. You know if you don't have a unique insight that informs how you build product or your go to market. It's probably not a good fit it for you to sound a businessman that space every every software engineer rights integrations whether we're integrating stripe or slack or Google or Facebook we read code.

"Myers welcome to software engineering daily thank you sits really exciting to be here yes and we're going to talk about the concept of competitive software businesses we're GONNA talk about investing in software businesses because you work at red point which is an investment company there's a term in investing called a moat and a moat is defensible advantage that accompany can have can you explain what a moat is and how a software company can build a moat so an economic moat is businesses ability to maintain its competitive advantage over its competitors new it's really based off of the idea of of Medieval fortress right so you're fortress that is the the business keeps the competitors out so raising barriers that make it harder for them to overtake you and it's mostly considered it defensive measure for the company and so one thing that's interesting here is you only have the ability to create competitive modes when you're in a competitive environment is to some degree these modes exist you can generate profits and when you're in a perfectly competitive market you can't generate profits and so you can't have a competitive moat one thing that I like to think about is kind of the fortress versus the moat so if the fortresses the company in the motives of the fence you know you really should be thinking about both of them one year creating the company you know the former the company should generate the ladder the economic moat and so it's important to set out at the beginning thinking about both junction not one or the other and how does this play out in software companies are we talking here about actual technology or is a moat a sales process or a marketing strategy or a hiring procedure yes so much actually come in a lot of different forms we traditionally think of about them more on the pick sides early stage investors note can be innovation like a differentiated technology that competitors can't really replicate another way to think about it in terms of product is low cost of production so now with clouds services it's easier than ever to get a company off the rounded founders no longer have to buy wreck servers or by storage raise an creeds competitive advantage compared to incumbent that may still have to be running a data center I can also use offshore teams as lower cost per head as another example of low in production costs which is a moat you know it's become really well known over the past few ears there are such things as data moats and one thing about a data mode is ability to not only collect data from your user base but also provide insights from it that other businesses that don't have that data can do an example of that in the software industry is some of these are companies like you pat and fortress I q have amassed massive data sets around the use of their technologies and this data moat better positions on going forward over RPA companies another network effects that we sometimes see an enterprise software where users get more value as there are more people using the software it's not only because of word of mouth is a very influential power but once everyone is using your product people don't want to abandon it really Z. High switching costs so this is the idea that once a team uses a solution people don't want to leave it you can use the ada here to create mods like superior workflow or institutional knowledge not a really great example of this we think about all the time is actually Jira for bug tracking it's ubiquitous everyone knows it people use the workflow every day maybe not everyone likes it but they still use it anyway because there's a high switching awesome retraining the people on a new system you know exporting and importing data from the old into the new the lag time of switching systems you know you don't want delivers to be unproductive and so this costs creates a nursery that keeps users on the existing solution and slows the growth of new ones one way that businesses try to create switching costs in like deeper tech infrastructure companies is usually because it's really hard to install figure integrate managing run these solutions like even take mainframes right I know they're not software like you suggested but they're still around today because the switching costs are so high some businesses crystalize their product moat through certification programs like I worked at CISCO CISCO CPI was notorious for this right like giving people credit for learning the back once they do they don't really WANNA move off those products we as early stage investors think about economic modes at the beginning of the business more in terms of the technology gene product but that doesn't mean there aren't other ways people can build boats on the go to market side of the house right so their brand mode so communicating companies unique advantage why they really stand out one of the best ways to build a brand moat is actually creating a brand owned term we recently invested in a company called op Sanni the credit their own brand new term for continuous cloud optimization Sio for short hubs spot they created inbound marketing drift coin personal marketing so kind of affiliating with the term that you create can be really powerful also on the go to market side of the House you have distribution modes so locking up sales channels like digital channels like owning the hacker news community owning read it exclusive good market partnerships can be really helpful for selling into Sei's that will only work with you some businesses have regulatory moats you know you have Ip trademark and licensees I don't focus my time on regulated industries to the same degree but you can have advantages there but what's really important about this is that most can be both wide or deep so a wide Komo relies on several factors twins product differentiation innovation and may be great branding while a deep moat is more difficult to overcome but his isolated to a.
