Dual Language Programs in the Pandemic: The story of Naperville 203.

"NFL. A podcast about waiting bombing. Length. In the past few weeks. The topic of school reopenings have reached a fever pitch with good reason as we pay close attention to discussion surrounding PP, social, distancing hybrid and virtual models. One thing that we are not hearing about much our efforts to ensure continuity in the many dual language programs across the nation. This is why we spoke with raw samples. One of the organizers of safe do a language in Naperville Illinois. The campaign is advocating for the dual language program to meet the language and cultural needs of its dual language students whether it be from a distance or in person a few days. After we recorded our interview with Rosa, she sent us an update it worked the NAPERVILLE school district will offer specialized programs like do a language for all students, congratulations to the organizers and most of all to the NAPERVILLE student body. Now here's Rosa. My Nimruz accomplice in I am an immigrant I am originally from Mexico I came here when I was fifteen when my family I was very fortunate to to go to college I became a teacher I am bilingual teacher I haven't endorsement in ESL and bilingual. I live in Naperville we moved here because of their amazing dual language program. And I think right now it's something that is very very concerning to us because we specifically moved here because of the school district, which is amazing tap in the country. And and they have a school. Dual language program that is very well established were talking about thirteen years it started back in two thousand seven. So I have two E. L. Else One of them is six she's going to turn six and the other one is going to turn three. And we you know my family we believe that dual language programs are the best way for them to become bilingual bi literate and multicultural at home. We are doing as much as we can you know to maintain their language to make sure that they feel proud of. Our heritage we we traveled to Mexico whenever we can we speak Spanish at home You know we read books at home mostly in Spanish my husband is native native English speakers, but he also speak Spanish. So. We have we have both languages at home. But. Yeah you know so so that's about about me but something that I wanted to to mention right at the beginning is that I have to talk about the privilege that I have because right now I'm here doing this interview with you and I know that there are a lot of families are not able to do this. So you know just like like check talking about my position of privilege. Starting with being a US citizen, an someone who is allowed to vote for policies for you know things that impact our kids directly our communities in there are many families are not able to do that I speak English, I can read English I can write English I have access to technology. That's another another issue with with you know some families. in I think one of the most important aspects is that I have a college degree in specifically to college degree in education that allows me to understand some of these policies I have a teaching experience I've been in the door language classrooms for eight years. So I know you know about the curriculum I know about things that if you are not in the education field, you may not be aware of. So I see all of those points as a privilege that I have and I am aware that not all families have the same privilege. and. Rossett tell us a little bit about the program itself before it closed down during the pandemic how did it work? How was it designed a track within within schools is fifty, fifty, eighty twenty. Tell us about that. Okay in my opinion, the door language program that we have here in Naperville two or three. It's it's amazing. Door Language Program a I mentioned before it's very well established. We're talking about thirteen years. It housed in five elementary schools out of fourteen and you know it's approximately six hundred students. In, that is half of them e. l. else in half of them, native English speakers. And We also have one middle school and Each of the two high schools you know. So it's it's It is a two way emission program meaning that it's a long-term bilingual in multicultural program that uses both languages for instruction and they follow an eighty twenty model. They have four lotteries to get in the program in that something that was very concerning to us because even though my daughter is an e. l., you know she's proficient in Spanish. We were concerned that there was still a lottery that she had to to go through. Four. Lotteries are for native Spanish speakers, native English speakers voice in girls. So the program is is balanced. A number of students you know With native English speakers, Spanish speakers, I. Think it's it's very, well balanced and they follow the guiding principles of of door language. So. I think you know in my opinion I think it's it's a very good program. We have an rougher tell us what happened when the schools closed in March when our schools closed we. Had to learn remotely or students learn remotely at home, but they stayed with a dual language. Our teacher. Was One sending US less implants and sending us e you know everything that we would cover during the week. And Eddie money in my opinion, it was very well planned because she would send us Nessim for the whole week and she would do zoom meetings with the whole class and she also had morning message every morning. So for my daughter, it was. It was easy to understand what was happening in our home because she was able to see her her classmates at their home. You know it was like a a reassurance that we're going to go back or it's Ok were all in this together And the teacher she was amazing are creating those spaces where we could come together through zoom meetings through the the APP. We had the homeroom APP where we you know all the families we would share pictures we would share a common so. It really felt like a community and especially because in in this door language program, it's only one strand. So which means that starting in kindergarten those students are going to be together and fifth grade. So those families really get to know each other very well because it's only one strand and that's how it is in every school. So for us it was you know something very nice that we were able to to maintain. The communication with the families and that we were able to share what we were doing at home and. So, in my opinion, it worked very well for us. So it sounds like like the school was able to transition to do a language I mean it sounds like they were able to do it right so so So locate the summer happens right at and how did the school communicate the changes in how the program would operate in the new year and what was the justification rights or to not offer the remote to a language program. Okay. So during the return to school plan, which was published in July thirteen not too long ago we were presented with two options the hybrid model in the online model. The hybrid model will have A and B groups and they would alternate being in the classroom two or three days depending on the week. The remaining days would be remote learning at home. Many many parents were not clear about the language location in each model that was percent it nothing was mentioned about learning Spanish. Through the online academy. So only after sending emails to administration, we were able to confirm that dual language students will participate in the hybrid model will continue to receive instruction in Spanish wild door language students who opted into the online academy would receive their curriculum in English with an English only curriculum. They did assure that E. L. Els would receive the support they are mandated by the state, but they didn't know how that was going to look and they didn't offer. Any explanation about that we were also told that they would provide Spanish resources for you know the emergent bilingual in the language classrooms to maintain their Spanish. But again, they were not specific about how those resources we're going to look. And the parents to be on his appearance. We were all very confused. We thought that the mode of instruction was going to change but not the actual program. So. This was not only. A. Does. Not, only raise an issue about equity, but also about communication in in safety ultimately, we were not provide with an explanation of why things where You know by we were offered that we were not provided with with an explanation. And it seems to us that we have to choose between accessing the academy content from the dual language program in being safe at home. And that is what our district is asking us to do by July twenty ninth, which is the deadline for the parents to choose. the deadline was extended. It was originally for July twenty second in after they received many emails from parents they extended it for eight days. But it's still we don't have an explanation about why this is the only two options that we get. We did receive an email. A couple of days ago, explaining how the the support, how support would look like for else. And in my opinion. It's just what the state is mandating nothing else nothing extra. It really looks like an ESL whole out online in to me. That's unacceptable. So. It sounds like I. Don't know if you know this but aren't they basically, if you choose to virtual option, is it like a centralized option? You mentioned the academy? So does that mean? It's is that why they're saying you would be in this academy that it almost feels like it be removed from the school although you're probably tied to the school but is that more or less how they're doing it? That's how it seems My understanding is that once we choose the online academy, WE ARE NOT GONNA be part over dual language cohort we are not. We could be with any students from the same great level that teacher does not have to be. A bilingual teacher you know it just seems like we're GONNA be part of a group depending on the access course of the else than they would receive the support that they need. But depending on how much time with bilingual teacher or an ESOL Dorsey teacher that's GonNa depend on their level of proficiency. So at this point, we know that for E. L. else if they choose it online academy, the curriculum is going to be an English with an English speaking teacher. And then they're gonNA raise receive services from national teacher that it's going to. Service them according to their proficiency in English. So you know this racist concerns especially when we're talking about maintaining or late native language about being By literate about being by cultural about you know obviously, that's not gonNa be promoted through that esl pullout online. This seems like a such an overwhelming I. I don't want to call it a choice because for some people, it's not a choice you have to keep your home. For medical reasons for whatever reason right an and. You would not only be losing the language component but from what you're describing in terms of how the program works also the community. Classroom access to the friends and the other families in which is essential now right doesn't that that feels that you would want that connection. So the kids can stay engaged and maintain those relationships. That's yeah that's difficult. It is very difficult in something else to consider is that the sender doling which is so important is because it allows families language families to preserve their native language. So I don't know if you have seen in in our campaign, we have kids what signs that say, yes, respect my native language because we feel that ultimately You know by offering them unenglish curriculum they are not they are prioritizing English in culturally and linguistically gentrifying unready marginalized community. and. When you face out or stop developing their native language, it is culturally damaging in quite frankly it is oppressive. It is absolutely end. It feels like you know this sort of untethering from a program that that is beneficial to Harry speakers is. It long term effects of of something that is by the way not going to last forever this is an emergency that we're going through right now this is not something This is not the new normal nothing about this is normal and it won't last forever and we have to come out of this. hopefully in particularly with our children, our concern hopefully unscathed and schools should be held accountable for that. Yes. I I completely agree right and and you know the I'm thinking to you're were saying that there are second language learners in the program as well. So they you know it it's yells and then the second language learners retirement suming our kids that are learning. Spanish. In the program they come from homes that are English begin or they speak other languages is Spanish right? So and I'm thinking those children are not going to have access to anything they're going to be completely cut off from so racist other concern when we're talking about. The growth in. We have this cost parents we have talked about how ultimately this year is going to affect the next six years of the program. You know the kids who stay in the door language program who choose the online academy will be behind. And that's you know it needs to be addressed because parents they can't for the program. You know if they went through the lottery if they went, you know these are families there are very committed to the program they believe in the principles of this program in just a putting them. Aside, it's just not fair for them not at all and and has have has the school may clear if you choose the digital, the virtual program that you keep your spot in the school. Yes. If you choose the online academy. You are making a commitment of a trimester and you're actually able to go back to the hybrid model in percent of you want to the following year. If you want to they have made that clear I asked of the option of homeschooling because you know as I mentioned a teacher, I would like to continue with the eighty twenty medal at home in that was not an option for me. If I want to get out of the the district and homeschool I, do not have a spot next year if I want her to. Come back to her classroom right and and really when you're talking about doing because my daughter went to a a monolingual English program in kinder-. And I tried to maintain Spanish at home and give her some sort of curriculum. But it's difficult to compete with. You know when you're talking about the entire curriculum is in English if you want to introduce new language, would the already pretty robust workload, right? Yes. View it is difficult and the kit. This is a situation where the kid already a little bit. Anxious and stressed out adding more work on top of that is not really feasible. Oh no we're talking about five hours of instruction in English and me trying to add. The content in Spanish it's just sad it's not very realistic. You know they say that you know they're going to provide Spanish resources for you know the English native speakers but you know we don't really know how that's GonNa look at might be a subscription to And I don't know. EPIC. Books in Spanish or you know we don't know how that's kind look. Awesome I. No I was gonna say that that's something to keep in mind and and I don't know if I let. You know that people who are making the decisions something to keep in mind is that we're not talking about an enrichment program. We are talking about removing barriers so that some of our most marginalized students can access the doling which curiculum the esl Polo program. You know this is not an elective or an extra curricular activity, and we don't know exactly how much representation was how much repetition representation for our E. L. L. Endure language students when decisions were made. So that's another concern that we have. Right, they didn't. They didn't reach out to parents and dueling which programs. So tell us about the campaign. How was how? Did it. Come up and obviously as a reaction to this but tell us about that in what the what you're trying to cheat with it. Okay? So. A site mentioned before we started by emulating the school district individually. And After that, there was a facebook group I believe it was a mom's facebook group. They realized that they had a common concern. and. After you know having conversations through facebook, they realized that something needed to happen you know. So seventeen families from the dual language program met through zoom meeting and created the following demands for the school board in this is something that we included in a in a letter that we all sent to the school board. So they felt that it was the responsibility of the district to provide a model to the online academy students that was comfortable to the hybrid model in regards in regards to language location, you know something that was Yep compatible Our families wanted a district white statement to go out to all language families that clarified that the online academy will only be presented through an English curriculum because this was not clear when they sent that. I information in July thirteen that was not clear at all. we explained that the current online clan could not meet the goals of the dual language program. We asked that wants to positions where clarified that they please provide a food nine days for parents to make their decision nine nine days was the number of days that was given to the district as a whole, and we felt that since many parents did not know about the the change in language location between the models that it would be unfair not to give them additional time to make an informed decision. we also asked the district to issue a dual language continue improvement plan that would include parents as stakeholders we suggested either a virtual or in person townhall where families could you know would have the opportunity to share questions, concerns and collaborate on problem solving ideas However, out of this three demands, we only received a deadline, an extension to the deadline, which was eight base, and we received a statement explaining how the the support would look for the else, and in another thing about that statement is that it was very confusing for families. It was worded in a way that made the Spanish. Speaking families think that it was a good thing you know. And I say this because not enough facebook conversation. In, some families were like Yay. We're making improvements. This is a an an thinking. This is not great. This is terrible for the language program. They completely left out all the natives, native English, native speakers completely in what they're offering to the email else. It's basically an ESL a nine it into me. You know I'm thinking about what happened to the thirty years of research that we have into this programs. That are. The best option for for our students you know so. After. that. Sorry, we created a facebook group and we have. About, two hundred. Families that have joined the facebook group. We what else? The website I think that website was one of the the the. Things that. We have really worked that we have really come together to create the content the pictures you know making sure that where sharing. The values that that represent the program in represent the families we created a twitter account in this is where Dr Semolina was able to share our message and we are very thankful for that. and. I think. This is something big. You know to have high profile supporters for a campaign like like him. Dr Jose the now, who is one of the authors of the guiding principles for language education at book that it's used basically in every dual language school in all every which program. a member of the Eleanor's House of Representatives Barbara. Mondays is is also following our campaign so we feel. Very. Proud for that Alattiya the Illinois Latino Council on Higher Education Dream A student leader station at in a you that represents undocumented students. In our school district, they are also following our campaign. Yes they. have limits followers in in our tutoring account. But I think one of the most powerful things that we have created is literally templates that. Parent where parents are able to express themselves and you really explain the issue and incentives letters to the school board to administration, and this is all in our website. This is all all the information that I'm sharing here. It's it's an her website. That's great. It seems like you're really you know engaging the parents and and and the school district as. which is I feel like the most important thing you know in terms of reaching out and and what challenging to engage the families that were in the dual language program at first to help them understand what was happening. It has been because not a lot of families are very aware of. Because to start where they were not aware of the English only curriculum. So you know that's something that we had to explain the parents that had emailed our administration You know that's something that we had to create that awareness and and I think that has been one of the most successful parts of this campaign raising that awareness. So that. A lot of people understand that this is an issue that goes beyond that language a location you know rate hit rating the importance of the culture that when we sent our students down the English, were actually sending them the message that we don't accept culture or the native language. We are making them feel like there is something wrong with them or that you know their English needs to be better and that this is you know this is very gentrified message it is culturally and linguistically. Oppressive By contacting parents working with them contacting the board I really think that we are making a difference when it comes to. you know educating parents that's another thing. They are learning things that they didn't know for example, be back. You know many parents didn't know that the Bilingual Paranoia Advisory Committee was a state mandated. Committee that represents English language learners it man many parents did not know that. So I, I think we have created an awareness that it has been needed in in this district in that I'm sure that it's needed in an older districts as well. Yes that's so important. A big part of organizing is sort of your ability to communicate the problem clearly, and also reaching the people that the problem is going to be you know affecting and and a it's it's you. You're doing a great job. I, mean, we looked at the website and we read through it and it's very informative and clear. Thank you. Appreciate it. Yes, and you know we our listeners, our parents. We also have educators and people in the in the sort of language academic world right and they. These parents are going through probably seem a similar problem and I don't know that there is organized as you are. More, evade even thought about doing something like that right and and you know a numbers, there's power. So what would be your advice to parents that are going through something like this in another district in another state what they can do tomorrow or today to to protect their dual language programs I think the first thing is to understand exactly what they're offering them. You know for us it it was Like very. The fact that we didn't understand what they were. US through that plan they you know they, they showed us the plan and we didn't understand. So the first thing in my opinion would be asking questions a mailing, their administration, Emily the school board, making sure that they understand what they are being offered, and then learning about their rights. You know this is something that we we are really advocating learning about things that are happening. For example, we have four board members who their term will be expiring next year. So at this point, we're we are. Educating families about this to you know this is something that we can change. It has happened in other districts like as we go where there was a time when the born decided to get rid of the dual language program, you were aware of this, but all the appearance organized in they created a campaign that was so strong that they were able to bring back the dual language program by. Gaining seats in their school board. You know, and so this is something that. We are. Educating parents now. But he had definitely a getting together sharing their concerns in in creating a plan you know there's work that has been done for example, the work that we have done. And they can find that in our website and see their something that they could use. They don't have to reinvent reinvent the wheel. You know like what we said in education teachers we always say we don't have to reinvented. You know if it it has it's been creative. We can use it and at that it but I think the most important thing is making sure. That that they always keep in mind the rights of their children you know because when we're talking about groups that have been marginalized that have been oppressed you know that that's something that really concerns me in one talking about the future of the dual language program. How is that GonNa look something that I i. keep in mind when one of the teachers contacted me. And and she said the the deal teachers were told they either teach the hybrid model or do the online academy would English can. Only in forfeit their positions has door language teachers. So that really makes me think of the future of the dual language program if I was a teacher and I'm put in that position. I don't think I would want to stay in district like that to be honest in in that makes me worried about. You know. There's a teacher shortage we know that. We know, and you really WanNa, keep the teachers that you have, and if they are you know being put in that position, it's just not good for the program at all She mentioned There will be many dueling which teachers who could staff dueling which online academy if the district would allow it. So. You know to me. It's it's very concerning I know that the Teacher Union is working on this then I hope that they find a way. To, work it out, and if we as as a campaign is the the dual save doling which in Naperville, we can help somehow the teachers or the Teacher's Union. We are more than happy to collaborate. We are. That's great. Teacher teacher unions have been instrumental during this time you know and. I think finding more pathways to connect with parents and parents working together with teachers because we want we both have the same goal. At, the end of the day is Great. So thank you so much to teacher unions solidarity. With them. In really this seems to to us. Like, it's kind of a an attempt to dismantle something is very powerful and beautiful right agent something that serving the community in ways at. You know you can't. You can't really measure it. It's just it's. It's you know do a language programs provides access to a new sort of like world for for children when they have been people in this country, we have fought so hard for them. Yes it's. It's so difficult to establish a dual language program and to maintain it, and now you know this feels like it's almost like. People are sort of throwing their hands up like they and I don't understand why this is happening and and we you know it it. It's it's everywhere and it's Kinda inexperience fortunate you know and for the people that you know it may not be happening in your community in your school district or in your CD. But that doesn't mean that it's not happening in that Sydney that they cannot get involved in support of their campaigns. So that's something to to consider into your point You know I thought about it when. I think about my three year old who is about to start Preschool, and he's already enrolled in the. The. School district's Preschool, which has a Bilingual Program T. B. E. Program. And as of now, we only have the option. If we want to do it online, we only have the option of an English only curriculum online. He's three years old. He does not speak English. He is merely proficient in Spanish. You know. So when you think about those students that are just entering you know. And there are not gonna be able to continue developing their native language about how much this is affecting them not only linguistically but culturally, you know their their identity, it's being affected by this, and ultimately you know when they went on a continuing to language program when it's time to go to kindergarten and take that access test air in see if they qualify as native Spanish speakers, many of them won't be able to qualify. So then what do you do if you don't have enough native Spanish speakers to enroll in door language program that has a fifty fifty population. You know when they have half of native Spanish speakers, half of native English speakers. But now you may not have enough native Spanish speakers because you remove that when they were three, you know. So it makes me think about the future of the program and it really makes me sad and I really hope that they reconsider you know because we have three days to the side and has of now we don't have any response. We don't have you know that that's the only thing that we have that statement that said how the support would look for El, else. But that's it. We don't have anything else bright, and what do you nobody's going to change her mind in three days if right choice for your family about safety right and hell league that's more time. Might you know it helps but it also? By now, most families know what they want to do and. And I. I, wish that schools. were. Thinking of beyond the emergency a little bit and thinking more about the long-term what we're talking about here. And I'm so glad that that this campaign has started in that year creating sort of a pathway for a lot of parents that are going through this So thank you so much. Thank you. Thank you. We really appreciate you reaching out to us and You know giving us a voice outside of school district You know we they contain we are working together. We have a very strong group of parents and I'm hoping that more school districts do this especially because we know that it is possible I personally know teachers who are GonNa be working doing language teachers who are GonNa be teaching online and I know that it's doable other school districts with less resources. This is this is an amazing school district in all the resources of other school districts with less resources are are making it work, and that's what we are expecting of this amazing school district. Thank you so much to Rossa and the organizers of this campaign. If you want to get involved or start a similar effort in your area, go to their website at save dual language in NAPERVILLE DOT com.

I'm also joined by Vasily Chaka Varsity is currently running for the Naperville City Council in Illinois, which is a nonpartisan election for the city of Naperville varsity and her family of lived in Naperville, Illinois since 2004. She has spent the past Twenty-One years as an IT executive looking for fortune five hundred companies such as I am and cement there were campaign schedule keeps her busy. She was very committed to community service and giving back as one of her core beliefs. She devotes numerous hours to volunteers working with stem programs in area high schools like to welcome all of you to the podcast. So my first question for the group is each and every one of you immigrated to this country from India and what's quite compelling I think for me and our listeners is a fact that all three of you have developed a deep interest in American politics policy may be And current issues at the local state and federal level. One of you Varsity is currently running for a local city council position in Illinois and Sri Lanka office. You have one previously and Fairfax County Virginia. So my question is, what was it that made each of you interested in finding your political voice and having it heard weather in that area of advocacy fundraising policy-making or even agreeing to come here on a Desi woman podcast a truly takes a very special person to make the Bold jump off a private citizen to being a political candidate active political volunteer or supporter of a major political party and a second part to that question a very important one. That's what Drew you to the Republican party and its ideology. I'll start with you Sri Lanka Sonia. Thank you so much for for bringing us together. It's quite admirably all that you are wrong. To bring the public and ladies together doesn't happen very often. So I have to thank you for doing that. So as for me as a child coming from a family where I've seen my own dad my uncle and my cousin brother being in politics at such a level. It was very natural for me to be inclined for politics or at least to say the least about policy-making after coming to United States after I got married at twenty-two and coming to United States and after making the initial economic adjustment. I looked around to see how do I implant my national cultural values into the American lifestyle found religion obviously took on more prominence and that's how I became a temple president, which was one of the largest North Indian temple in the area and that experience of being Temple president and taking on that largest leadership role enriched my value cultural belief and understanding that offer even American society wage. It just gave me the gratifications that America's freedom of worship means that individual is free to worship any God at any time at any place in this beautiful country and freelance. So while I was kind of enjoying that freedom in the country, I was naturally inclined as a healthcare professional to kind of move onto policy world as well like in any other immigrant while I was living my dream in this land of liberty of policy-making and being in leadership role. I attended Obama rally again being an immigrant. It was natural for me to be at a Democrat attended Obama rally believe it or not. I was quite taken back at the inflammatory speech Obama gave and then I came back from that Obama rally and just really wanted to look up to other party site. And that's where Republican party came into picture. I long story short. I just knocked on Republican party door and said, you know what I want to really dead. Explore what this body values are because I'm really not enjoying the inflammatory speech and highly partisan divide that Obama is spreading around and that's how I expose myself to Republican party and I'm enjoying the Republican Party values of Freedom limited government and strong National Defense Family Values. So here I am with traditional Republican values gleaned from these resources and Rich history. Wonderful. Thank you for answering that and possibly the same question for you. Thank you Sonia. Thank you for giving us an opportunity to voice over concerns that beliefs on this very neutral platform. My political involvement wage actually came from my very early childhood. I come from a very active public service and Community engaged family in my grandfather was a freedom fighter well, You have a struggling program freedom from British government. My grandfather worked with Condi. So I grew up listening to those stories and always inspired by values of freedom and Self Service about South and value-based Leadership and all that stuff. So I was very active in India in apple. Go Arena. I used to be participating in student elections. And I was also a very active student leader when I was in high school and also in college wage then I got married and because of my marriage I had to leave India and also my husband it was a great thing and it was an adventure that put a stop to my political activities because my husband is a scientist and he's not into politics or activism this type of stuff. So I concentrated on my education. And also raising my family having kids and all that stuff. Once I have my kids like, you know concentrated on my career and raising kids and the settling down living my American dream. So then I'm not until we came to Naperville, Illinois. I got involved in Civic engagement off. My kids are in schools. My daughter was in high school and my son was in elementary school at that time. I have seen some of the things which disturb me in the school education system here in Naperville. It's not the education was bad. But some of the programs were not promoted in the schools where my son was attending and not that other school district was offering all those programs and I thought why these kids have the disadvantage of not having these programs so we went to school and job Now talk to the Headmaster and teachers and they said we do not have resources. We cannot do these things and that kind of made me jump into the public Arena. So I did not even know what school board was and what the political system is here. So with that impulse I just ran for school board and I didn't really know anything about tipped and I learn a lot and made a lot of relationships and friendships and learn about people and again the political affiliation Republican party and Democratic party join their values until then like I think she like I mentioned in her previous podcast. She didn't even know she was Republican until she attended this song rally. So I that is what it made me realize when I was hearing from both sides One Fine Day. I said like darn I'm a republican. I'm Not Dead. My credit because a lot of people like us from who come from India largest democracy on the planet Earth. They think we are coming from a biggest Democratic and that's why we have them ethics. I mean, that's what I heard a lot of times. I may be wrong, but that is the Assumption lot of Indians have when they come here and naturally they are drawn to democratic party. Then I started attending the monthly meetings and I made so many good friends who are you know, I haven't really experienced. Any white supremacy life is any of the things and I was only the indo-american person there and they never make me made me feel like I'm a different person eventually I got very interested in. Joining the politics and I was the first in the American who was the president of Naperville area Republican women organization then after I served it for 2 years and I moved to the state level again. I was the first Indian American who served at the Illinois is Illinois state of Federation of Republican women organization at the leadership level. So now I just moved on to a different Journey based on policy education, but you know, those are the things which inspired me to be in the Republican Party. The reason I'm running is a totally different story lately. We have seen so much division in the country not only at the national level, but very healthy and fight closed communities like Naperville. We are experiencing a lot of this Division and people are not comfortable with each other to have a dog. And for me, it's a community engagement with the transparency is very important because that is vital for the strong communities. So I found these things are happening. You cannot just sit back and watch somebody is going to come and rescue or somebody's going to come and Men this problem. These are the times for you know call for Action. So I'm a very good connector of the people and the real leader need to be a building bridges between people and communities with different beliefs and faiths and off, you know, all that. So I believe in that that's the reason I'm running for city council to do the community engagement and not promoting the connections. Not the conflicts God. Thank you Sonia. Wonderful. Thank you and bandana the same question for you. Thank you Sonia. Let me take this opportunity to felicitate all dead. Wonderful, three ladies doing great public service and community service, like my fellow Indian Americans from India. I also came to this country a while ago about nine years ago and growing up. I was also interested in current affairs and politics and it was part of a very multi-cultural multi-religious pluralistic society in a city called Benares on the banks of the river Ganges in India, and it was a very healthy organic living and I when I came to a minister, but it kind of was very similar. It's a very open Society. I did have a few bad incidents racial incidents and I think most of almost all of us have had those thoughts and full disclosure. I am a little bit I I identify myself now as an independent, but right-leaning figuratively and literally a little more real Meaning because I I was with Obama and Hillary Clinton and that Democratic party made sense to me, but what I see now is not the Democratic party that believed in and I'll tell you why I am feeling very misrepresented and taken for granted feeling very disillusioned and disenfranchised by this Democratic party as of now home and that is my reason why I have jumped ship lately. You must have heard there were these series of resolutions coming against India, but they really are against Hindu American flags all over different cities. They are called resolutions against CAA, which by the way is a sitting law in India and it it respects and protects people who were written into the constitution of India in 1950s when the country had got a constitution as a republic yesterday was gandhiji's birth. From the land of Gandhi from the most non-violent like the the ancient the most democratic and the most non-violent country where MLK learned all his ideas about non-violence and people are saying things like riots are the voice of the unheard because MLK said that and I want to say a beautiful quote by Rousseau in his book the social contract and he says when the government exceeds the boundaries set in place by the people it is the mission of the people to abolish such government and begin Anew and I feel that sort of resonates with me because I am so tired of the false narratives the factually incorrect In accurate versions of India and Hindu Americans being portrayed. In fact, you know, the popular media and the media narratives constant bashing of people that have never been indulgent terrorist activities or any anti-national activities. He's around the world or in America and we are not able to carry on narrative. We are not the people that are being being portrayed. I would like all the city council's to send these silly very may be factually incorrect resolutions that they have come up and this is in the name of democracy. This is in the name of the human rights. And so this really got me very very rebellious. I was very disillusioned by the Democratic party and as another major party. I saw some space with the Republicans where I felt that I could provide a different point of view I could reason because the party that may have been voting for has taken me for granted is not listening to me. I wrote to a local public officials. I wrote to the Senators. I wrote to the governor. Everybody said that these resolutions are well within their well, you are bringing these resolutions in cities, but you're not taking care of your own racist and human rights problem. I come in a I live in a city where five days after this resolution passed a person was cold-bloodedly in full view of job. Camera was murdered. It was pathetic. I come from a a city. That is so socially Progressive we gave the first Muslim the First Independent Governor the first name man Congressman the first Muslim woman Congressman. We are so out there we used to pride ourselves as the example to the rest of America and this is happening and I just feel that we have to hold a public officials very accountable. Whoever the party is. It doesn't matter. I was very very compelled to speak and Shout from every corner that I heard that you know, we really need to stand up and say Hindu Americans are not what we are being shown Hindu Americans are always with democracy and upload realistic and respectful of other people and it is very wrong that you are twisting. Somebody else's faith for your own political gain for your own political agendas. There is some kind of a political expediency going on with the major Party candidate is scared of even call log. Self of Indian Origins Sonia you proudly say that you come from India. Why isn't the vice president candidate able to say that she's from Indian origin not south. I mean, yeah. She South Asia name is also Indian and I've never heard of say that whereas Nikki Haley goes on National Camera and says that my parents came from India. I'm a proud person of Indian origin. So there was a lot of the solution it was very heartbreaking and as the other major party, I've I felt that I was not being heard or seen in this party and because there is no other party that I could talk to em, I feel like now I have to engage with the Republicans and I feel that we need to get involved as people who've been watching what's going on and make things better for both the parties, but I feel safer and I'm going to be with the Republicans this time. Thank you before we jump into my next question. I really want to offer some broad statistics about Indian Americans wage. Voters in this country for our listening audience as I research the show was eye-opening for me and the phone data can be found at National Asian American survey, which I will have in the podcast notes as of twenty twenty people born in India or the second largest immigrant group in the United States in 2015. 58% were citizens nearly two-thirds of them were younger than 18. The number of indian-americans eligible to vote is increasing by about a hundred fifty thousand annually a third through naturalization and the rest as children of immigrants reach voting age for the 2020 elections. Here's what this means volts of indian-origin will barely be about 1% of eligible voters. Most of these voters do tend to lean Democratic in the 2016 presidential election wage. 69% of Asian Americans voted for Hillary Clinton and 25% for Trump for indian-americans. The numbers were 77% and 16% respectively since most Indian Americans live in heavily Democratic areas like California and the Northeast for the most part they are not swing voters in swing States. So here's the question for each of you. What are you seeing about Indian American voters in your communities. Is there an opportunity for greatness community-wide engagement and preparing for my podcast interviews with indian-american women in the political scene? I was astounded by the fact that most of you even within the same party aren't necessarily acquainted with one another there is no Central platform or organization apart from party lines that unites indian-american women and wage. Certainly. Hope this show can help to change that. I want to see what your thoughts are. So let's start with you about of a that's a very good question Sonia and Thursday. It's a very powerful analysis. We you know, you have described here in Naperville. We have 15% of the population is Asian Americans and which means like, you know, a lot of indo-american families are here and the peach school district has 15% of the Hindu American kids who attend the schools to public school districts here. So unfortunately our Indian Community is not very active in the political Arena our Civic engagement. They are always talking about kids education and settling down in good carriers and you know live in a nice neighborhood. Where is there a good schools and less crime and all these kind of things wrong? But when it comes to Civic engagement, we don't really see many Indians whether it is men or women engaged in the Civic conversation. I get in the political activism. They do donate money to the candidates mostly to the Democratic side and I do have a lot of good friends who are Democrats and who are the Senators congressmen and all, you know, elected positions. But you know, when it comes to any party people do not really show much interest in a you know, running for a position They Don't Really support completely the candidate from the Indian origin. They do not understand what each party stands for completely off. I mean, we only know the party principles at the on the surface not in the deeper level and that shows lack of political education. In this country, but the immigrants who come to this country. So the civic education is very very important. So before even the Civic engagement, we need to make ourselves in a you know stream of the mainstream Community. We tend to stay to our own crowds and you know our culture and we just stay as a separate group and I don't really get ourselves engaged in the mainstream community and I have noticed that a lot and I attend rotary meetings and I I go to Chamber of Commerce and change other community organizations events in the Naperville, and I'm only the Indian person and another gentleman. We only the Two of Us in every meeting for past five years. And when I see that this is not a all the Indian most of the Indians who live in this community they are in good professions like, you know, they are dead. Their own companies, they're entrepreneurs business people doctors lawyers and teachers professors, but they do not really take any part in the Civic Arena if you go and ask them to vote for you they may work for you and if you ask but the on you know money for your campaign, they may give you but they they don't have an active voice in this song in this area. So we need to encourage everybody in that. So the another thing which leads to is the schools the schools are influencing children whom to vote for and whom not to and the children comes home and then talk to their parents like, you know, they are dictating the parents whom to vote and who not to vote and if parents do not understand the process and the political beliefs are the the legislation, you know constitution of this country and how they are going to have a dog. Civic dialogue with their children and the first of all the teachers have no a place to tell children whom to vote and whom not to vote in the classroom. The classrooms are not campaign platforms. So that needs to be very Mindful and it needs to bring to the school board members and they need to address this from the top level the th they should be some kind of guidelines. Now, you know teachers should not be talking about politics in the classrooms. It doesn't matter either way whether it is left party or right party at the middle party in a classroom should not be political platforms for children to bring the message to their parents and create a conflict in the family when Indian candle stands for election, the people who are actually voting for her or him. They need to know the basics of the Constitution and how the policies are made. Yep. How policies shape every day of their life. So either way whether it is democratic policy or republican policy. We need to have a deep understanding about the policy is faith that really helping the community and the person at the level where the positive change is going to be in the community to help larger Community or is it just sucks. Now, I helping, you know actually harming the community. If you do not have education in policy, it's very difficult for them to choose and when it comes to based on young Democratic party or Republican party, people are heavily charged by their emotions and emotions are creating lot of conflict between people and it is building a large gaps instead instead of digits between people and that is what it is creating a lot of conflict in the community right now. So especially our dog Community into Americans need to have Civic engagement in the need to get involved in the community also get educated in the policies and also they need to go through Constitution and what what it stands for and how the state and federal governments run and by local government is so important and a backbone up their entire system. And if they if we can have that dialogue in a Civic manner, I think we can create that engagement in this home, you know Union Community to be part of the mainstream community in Sri Lanka the same question for you Sony. I think possibly spoke very eloquently about the entire cycle right? We came here as immigrants and after making the initial economic adjustment which which takes quite a bit of toll on as we come here birth The merely hundreds of dollars and we just have to really build some kind of economic stability to ensure that we are not only safe. But also we are creating this little wealth that where we feel secure after doing that that's when we are kind of looking around and saying, okay what else I can do for the community. That's where the Civic engagement begins so during that process I I agree with you. I think we kind of take it back seat about Community engagement and like possibly were saying that's where we get into our little shelter of being in our own comfort zone and not feeling like we have to get out of our comfort zone and actually get into the mainstream mainstream business. So very few people know such as who you see right now are the people that are actually going out and running for school boards because they do see the Gap in the policies or running for supervisor positions are running for city council. So senators and Congress has because they want to make a difference in policy job. But I also that being said I also kind of Bill move on to some solutions, right? I am starting to see some changes happening within Indian Community. Those Indian communities are becoming empowered Indian communities are starting to realize that same old is not going to be okay Indian communities are starting to understand geopolitics much better than what it was ten years back if it was telling us back or two decades back. Yes, we wore one of those people that would just donate money. They would be very submissive. We would just be one of those constituents that would feel like we would just donate money and we would just follow through whatever the leaders to ask us to follow through but things are changing especially our second generation immigrants granted. They're all much more inclined to democratic party, but thoughtless of the body they belong to they're getting to be lot more vocal so which is a positive trend. So you're going back to what possibly was saying that teachers have no business in educating them. I agree. I think schools should be very educational from the perspective of business sticking to the curriculum and shouldn't be kind of dictating what site that the kids are political party system should look like that kind of being said the parents should have such knowledge about Constitution that no matter what kids are saying there should be able to engage in active dialogue to ensure that they are able to participate in then active dialogue. So they're not being swung by what kids are saying. I also will move on to your second point of your question. I believe you said, what is the central platform? Is there even a central platform such as yours know that at this point there is no platform for later Indian women for that matter. There is no platform for immigrant women there. But I feel like there is a little more openness for Democratic women and less openness for Republican immigrant womens at this point, but that is changing for sure. Unfortunately, there are not multiple organizations wage. Promoting women's political participation and gender equality still it will be great to have organizations that have commitments and gender equality and enhancing women's political participation through policy dialogue exchange of good practices among government and Civil Society. It will be great to have those organizations that facilitate that exchange of experience and expertise. So women also can can I direct political and public life and build the national mechanisms for advancement of women. So Community organization again, community-wide engagement is currently done through several women groups a local GOP group, and I know myself on one then I have a couple of conversations saying that how do we get better involved in local GOP groups so we can better promote a women's political participation, but I do see even in this age groups that there are not many immigrants, especially South Asian immigrants lack of participation possibly says she participates in Chamber of Commerce, but you don't see a lot of immigrants women's or South Jersey. Women participating in those things. So I encourage my own colleagues salvation women's are women or immigrant women participating in those kind of channels to I was actually planning on building a coalition just for immigrant women. They're calling it as immigrant Republican Federation women that way you make one woman's feel secure and safe. And in that channel, I had a choice of developing High School clubs or middle school clubs or college clubs. Just focusing on conservative Girls Clubs developing them into leadership forums to focus on immigrant girl having that conservative values and telling immigrant goals that it is, okay to have conservative values just because you are a high school girl or a college girl. You need not always fall into a general category. I think there are many mechanisms to develop that are already a lot of mechanisms developing and Republican. Well, there should be more mechanisms. I think that is the wholesome approved. In order for us to kind of expand and increase or community-wide the engagement definitely to answer your question that are more opportunities for greater community-wide engagement. There are many ideas just floating out there and we would love to create that Central platform and you'll see more coming from our side than the same question for you. I was so taken in by the beautiful way that the two ladies were describing on why I think I would challenge your experience about this understanding I think Indian Americans have been very involved always just know a Warren there when we say Indian Americans I'm talking of people of mostly Hindu faith and seek Faith or mostly Hindu faith that they do not wear their religion on their sleeve when we come here. We quietly get down to work and we become, you know different heads of Dean's of University CEOs of Fortune five hundred companies business month. Hotel owners, you know everywhere you see we're a little bit like, you know, the proverbial, you know proverbial doers and it had been sort of our calling that we just quietly Vote or do whatever and I was struck by what the women were saying that we have always followed where the high-income jobs are and things but we've never paid attention to the fact that why we're in this society that rewards are hard work is because the policies and the politics of this society and Country create the reasons that everybody wants to immigrate everybody from the world wants to emigrate to America and I think it's striking a chord and most of us now and we realize that we have to be while we were silently engaged. We have to get our hands and feet dirty and get down to Grassroots level. I was just reading about the number of Muslim American with them. That are mirrors in this country and city councilors and are actively working towards creating a positive narrative towards their religion. Their religion has taken such a bashing but this is a country where after nine-eleven it gives space near ground zero five hundred yards away from 9 from Ground Zero after nine-eleven. They have given space for the largest mosque being built wage in America. So I think we've be Indian Americans have always felt very grateful for the society in the country that we live in and we've lived quietly. We never make a sound and bite about the facts in 2006 when we were making the temple in my city in Minneapolis, and there was some amount of hate crime in some teenager boys. I think most of them were Caucasian is completely dismantled the temple deities and and broke them and and were charged and were caught and the community decided that we didn't want them to get a bad rap on their futures. So we let them go. He asked the judge to just let them come and help us rebuild and these kids these teenagers were required to come and do community work with us in the game Temple. We brought new deities. We started all of fresh and we we showed this to our kids then and there was a lot of positive impact in the local community in Maple Grove weather Temple is that people really felt very good about the fact but it did not pick up in the National media, you know hate picks up national media, but but the positive stuff about Indian Americans does not and this is why I am so impassioned against these city council resolutions against India and against you know a resolution against of the most course and crude kind which is you know, asking people to not give space to other religions to give space to people who are persecuted the world over. I mean you hello the Irish Pub. Is you call yourself the you know, the Statue of Liberty the place of Liberty where anybody who feels persecuted can come and you are not letting other countries do that at the same time. So I keep coming back to the same thing that we have been very engaged. We may not be very important in are grass-root politics. I think that's changing. I think a lot of women. I think I heard you and your last podcast there was a lady who was a junior in a small city was very impressed by her and her story. I think all of us have personal stories and we've always sort of been very engaged everywhere just never took the political monikers and off never took the formal positions of power and now in hindsight, of course, we should have worked a little more harder, but I think it's been affected. I think ladies like Vasily and Sheila, and yourself and others are getting engaged in mainstream politics, and I think I also felt acetate women on the Democratic side job. Who are trying to work towards a narrative? I think after 77% people who voted Hindu Americans or Indian Americans who voted for the Democratic party. Last time are not going to break off people like me. I think you will see a large chunk of indian-americans will be voting for Republicans because we do understand that the Democratic party needs to take a seriously and we need to make a choice for ourselves in the Republican party and the Republican party is paying as more attention. So why not take you know, inviting arms rather than arms that are pushing us away. And so I feel very hopeful I feel very positive. I feel that you know, Indian women and Hindu women can do wonders because of the culture that we come from because our religion is very Democratic. We never had a single ideology. We have openings for everyone all all sorts of ideologies are part of our if you can call it a religion Hinduism and I think that as women have shown They have gone on on you know, fortune five hundred companies and been the best physicians and and been the best Educators and in the best professors, but I think we'll make the best politicians to show me see Nikki Haley coming on to the ticket for years from now and I see a Hindu American woman or at least an indian-american women becoming the first woman president of this country. So very hopeful about a sew-in the engagement site. We created a organization called in the American community outreach. It is actually commissioned by the city council itself. Our previous mayor and the current mayor they both endorsed for the Indian community outreach in Naperville and it grown into a very prestigious organization. And the main focus of the organization is to engage educate and Empower Indian communities to bring them all together as you know, yep. Indian communities we have there are ten or fifteen people together. They will create an organization. So this indo-american community organization is a umbrella type of organization and it just helps the community to address the social issues. You know, we will we have candidate forums and scholarships thousand students and India days our signature event last year. We had almost forty thousand people attended the event in the Naperville is a very small community wage, but we had and it created it created a very positive narrative about Indian community and what it is about and we also create the Americans come and suck the celebrate Holi also in this community and they enjoy the colors they are and enjoy the culture and enjoy the food. So when we bring these type of things together and Ed Make us part of the community and then invite others also into our community. I think it is in our DNA all the Indians know that and we have known for our Hospitality. So I see our is one of our biggest achievement in our community. And as one dimension this what they have done with the kids who violated the temple and you know, if there is some type of thing what they have done with the kids, it's amazing. I mean, you know when a person does wrong it's not not punish them but reforming them is the solution Home and these stories don't make it to CNN and other liberal channels, but we need to make this go when they're not like you shared that story right now, and we need to share that story again. And again, you know, this small things Ripple effects will you know influence a lot more people and we can just share stories like this. Thank you so much. Yeah, I I agree. I think there has to be a campaign from indian-american women and should they can I apart of organization call Indian American Republic women and we want to create kind of a club where we can come up with a narrative and create the narrative that is the truth and not the narrative that is being given in the popular media and I agree with all you ladies that we have to be so active today is the day that we just have to be very active about what is going on around us. So I have a very different perspective on this Sonia. I feel like Trump has not done anything different than what was written about immigration in the Constitution. What truck has actually done is actually implemented what was in the Constitution? This might be something that I would wait to see what other ladies have to say because I wouldn't claim to say that a foundation constitutionalist and I know every word of it, but from what I understand, I do have a lot of friends in legal industry. And from what I've understood from them is that he's not done anything that it was just that during Obama administration and during previous administration. It was never implemented and Trump chose to implement every word of it. If you think about it all is saying is that you can't overstate I'm all for legal immigration if American folks don't have the jobs, then you can overstay your business. I am not going to log American software or just because some Indian companies are trying to Chu's Lo labor. So I think anything that he has policies have said they've been very focused on America First and which if you think about it in a bigger picture you really want a president that wants to take care of his own country and his countrymen so I would love to hear from other ladies. This is a topic that I think I want to think from both the perspective of being a very empathetic, you know as a human being at home. So be a very partial human being coming from an Indian immigrant background, but also try to be very focused on Merit immigration, but also be as a public and I want to be very focused on being a constitutional list and I favored from policies to an extent that I'm in full favor of Merit immigration. There was a time where we left off. Doctors come in because that's what America needed then he let it Engineers come in because that's what I America need at. There was a time where the United States government like when I came in there was a need for physical therapist. That's my background and I was able to get my green card in a very short amount of time. So at any point of time US Government chose to bring in employees that country needed and not what Trump did it too. So it feel it feels like when Trump tries to implement something that is good for America, then it becomes a problem. But when other presidents try to impact the same thing it was never a problem. So this becomes more of a trump issue more says more of not a trump issue. So I would love for for other ladies to take a dig on this topic, but I really don't see anything wrong with this policies. I think America First policies have great merit-based immigration policies of great legal immigration is the way to go and birth Don't see any issues with that policies at all. Mostly I agree with the Sri Lanka what she has said about Trump and his immigration policy. And I also talked to many of my friends and my even my nephew who came here as a student and now he got got a very good job and he lives in Minnesota Minneapolis. And may I have another my best friend's son. He lives in New York and he also came here as a student and he got his Rich one and then he's also working in a very good organization. So they are not really affected by this but I do agree with Sheila, but she has said in a lot of kids come here to study and they are a lot of people who go to university here and then they should be based on Merit. They should be given the first preference. I mean if you have your child in that position and off. You take the situation and I strongly believe in merit-based Immigration and also legal immigration when we came to this country. We came legally and then waited for our turn to get green card and then become citizens. So if we waited that long and why it is a new, you know different people have different preferences and these policies are so important and the abuse of the system needs to stop. So I'm not you know, this immigration policies thought, you know border security and legal immigration and milk best immigration as a citizen of this country you need to you know, support those things and personally maybe some of the it companies my friends have may have issued. Issues having the staff and all that, but they are no I don't think anything unpair has dead. to the people because of these policies and again, you know as still like I said leader should take care of the country first and then other things I'm going to read you a quote that I really like reading at times when I feel very down and out and this is written on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty in these are Emma. Lazzaras Words, which it says give me your tired your poor your huddled masses yearning to breathe free The Wretched refuse of your teeming Shore send these the homeless off the tempest-tossed to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door, and I'm reminded of my friend whose family emigrated from I think Mark or Sweden. I don't remember because Minnesota has been a very Norwegian very Scandinavian part of the country and she used to tell me that when her forefathers had two three generations ago came they were given a space near Wisconsin and they just said run as far as you can and put a stake in and all that land as yours off. Obvious me, you know they have what hundreds of acres and she they they lived there there. There's a lot of oak trees they make some awkward and and took a decent amount of money out of this free land. So when we talk today about immigration these words don't apply the policies have changed. There is such a large amount of complexity do this. I often say that you know politics is about perceptions and it is about Optics and the sudden decision by President Trump seems to be catered towards the rising unemployment in the country people. I had a personal experience where when I was a homemaker raising my children off and there was another gentleman who was also a home husband and I invited him and his daughter over to lunch to be with my daughter and me and he just was so angry with the in dog. Because he could see that he says you guys have no educational debt you come with these very very easy government-subsidized education's you come you right away, great jobs, and we feel left out because we had such a lot of educational debt that we have to pay and you you take the plumbers jobs. And of course he forgets to remember that I am a very hard working very low-cost fruits on the tree easy to pick whenever they want. We will work endless hours. We don't ask much we don't ask for Christmas holidays. We took the best people to work and sometimes politicians do what they do because they need the Optics of it. I don't say that. I understand everything that is being done in politics, but I do worry about the dreamers and the DACA in the border security and the way the kids were treated on the I think there is a lot of room for Jeff. Some kind of bipartisan kind of open engagement conversation where I don't agree with the anti-immigrant sentiment, but I hope that it improves with some kind of a dialogue where people can be both sensible and and conservative and also be humanistic and this is not just about Trump and it's worth trying to centralize also the right-wing conservatism and to engage in some kind of a bipartisan policy work because divisions and misunderstandings and frustrations have what has created these rides around us people are angry, but people don't know how to express themselves people are not able to converse with each other's from both sides of the aisle it if she's a very important topic it's a very complex topic and I think there has to be very clear and very good dialogue and we have to have a country which is open to religious political refugees. She's coming as as a reasons of you know, religious or or other kinds of Oppression. We have to have a country which is open to educational and other kinds of em friends, but we also need to have a country that is engaged with other countries and creates good economies and good political systems in these countries and not be hypocritical. So the intelligence Chief different countries, like India is brain. Drain doesn't happen. We can all engage in some kind of Civic and civil in interaction at the international level the fact that so many people just keep running on, you know on foot and others from El Salvador and and Lower South America. I mean the abject poverty and the poverty in America. I mean, there's just so much to work about we can't just work worrying about you know, I mean, it's important as an Indian. It's I sound very crass when I say I can't always worry about the Indians, but I think that's why I feel like there has to be an overall in dog. Everything just the way things are taught. The way policies are taught the way the law is thought and think about what is rational for the country at this moment. Thank you. I had really really enjoyed Ronald Reagan. The people that have spoken to me. I always tell her know that I really enjoy his code. I'll called one of the things that he said how true it is even tells me that he quoted in one of his speeches that the one legislature accused him of having in nineteenth-century attitude and Law and Order and he said that that is a totally false charge. I have an eighteenth-century attitude that is when the founding fathers made it clear that the safety of law-abiding citizens should be one of the government's primary concerns. And so he meant to basically say that is 19th century attitude that was 18th century attitude. And I meant to say that is a twentieth-century attitude and that should be a thirtieth century attitude. Right long order is should never be an old fashion statement that right now, in fact even two days back or three days back. I was at Fairfax County Board of Supervisors meeting where I did my job 3 minutes bill of why Law Enforcement Officers needs to be protected and need to be complimented for this services and how much minorities I will struggle if Law and Order is not protected in the in the country. That being said, I think Republican party. The choice is very clear Republican party is 1040 that supports law and order it supports the police. It supports the Second Amendment rights. It wants a security is very focused on securing borders. So the choice is Extreme. We are I mean, I think coming from a background of immigrant background. I feel like Law and Order is my number one choice. I think it's good for immigrants. It's good for children. It's good to live in neighborhoods where there is crime free so I can see a an issue of not having I mean, I just can't see a drawback of having issues. With not having proper Law and Order, right? So I support the party that supports Law and Order In fact when the debate happened, I was pretty surprised that Joe Biden wage was not the link to condemn violence. And in fact, he called it called antifa as a phenomenon which kind of literally took took me by surprise. I mean, he's not a phenomenon. It is happening. It is an organization black lives matter. I respect black lives matter. I respect all lives matter but black lives matter is an organization that is supported by law, which was that really don't care for the country. I mean peaceful protests are okay, but violence is not okay and violence is real businesses are hurting the house has a burning billions of dollars are being wasted and this is not the America that I walked into. So I think that's for me I support law and the order professionals and Lord and authors. Hundred percent and that's precisely why I like the party that supports that Law and Order hundred percent of the time. Yeah. This is actually something that I'm very passionate about and not listening very carefully to shalika and I can tell you that while I was very angry with the Saint Paul city council for bringing out this resolution against India a effectively against the Hindu Americans. I was extremely abhorrent Lee Jarred by the horrifying episode 5 days later of Mister George Floyd on the streets of our city and I've lived here for twenty nine years. I've seen several shootings. We were very we were all out when philando Castile happened and then last midterm we gave it a plethora of Democrats we gave ilhan Omar we gave Keith Ellison as the Attorney General the police chief of the city is a black Democrat the dog. Saint Paul city mayor is a black gentleman. Also a Democrat the city Minneapolis mayor is I think he's he's Caucasian but he's a very well entrenched Democratic. We have Democrats. Both Democrats are women Senators. The governor's Democrat. We have Democrats left right and center and I think the reason I mean, I wouldn't protest March I went with my kids in these protest marches a lot of these marches were all peaceful. There was a lot of peaceful protest but there of course was a lot of violence and I feel that the violence that mm animated is more an expression of disgust and contempt for the Democratic Leadership. And that's why you see it happening more in the Democratic states and cities off. Yes, there are elements of you know, antisocial criminal type people that is always that that always has been but the fact that people are so angry that fact that people are just so off. Stated that you know, they are this violence is more symptomatic expression of the psychological anger and pain that people are going through because last time I saw something like this happening in in broad daylight and full public view was Daniel Pearl getting garroted in Pakistan and that was about twenty-five years and I still remember being shaken by seeing that video on YouTube. It was so ugly. And this is not we are the beacon of this world. We are seen by the whole world eight billion people watch us 8 billion - 330 million people watch us on a daily basis and we have to show by example and and the fact that this kind of violence that happened shows that yes, there is space for some amount of violence, but she has to be contained it has to be talked to it has to be taken an account and the important job of both the Democratic Leadership and the Republican leadership to be very pluralistic very democratic. I come from a religion. That is extremely Democratic. We believe in reason in Multicultural understanding and understanding why people are angry people are angry because they have elected officials were supposed to make policy and make it less racist lest difficult. You know, I come from the country where everybody is required to go through some meditation or yoga or something, you know, why and and I also feel very sympathetic towards the police because I was just thinking the other day that who would like to get up in the morning get dressed and go beat up people or shoot people. I mean that is a very ugly job to do and I have to take and in account least these people who are ex-military people veterans people who have been hardened War veterans, I mean wage but just so much complexity to life this this is not how people should behave there has to be more understanding on why this is happening. We just constantly carping at each other with constantly e Pointing fingers and I think this time the Democrats have been caught with their pants down. I think it really need to sit down on their desk and think about what their their ideology stands for what exactly am trying to say and I think people are very angry at the Democrats and that's why all this violence and all this this really wild way of behavior which is apparent to the whole world is going on because people don't have a way people are trying to create new orders. We I mean, I feel very disenfranchised by the Democratic party in Minnesota because we created we thought that the Democrats were supposed to be the progressive and it seems that that is not a copyright of the Democrats, you know progressives can be Republicans too and I was reading about a movement. It's called C cube in saying Cloud where University Professor has she come up and has started, you know, this this popular. I mean, I just heard it yesterday on the on the television the shadon flout talking about Somalians as people or you know, not letting someone else. This is so antithetical and so ugly to the Minnesota way of thinking and we all need to heat hold each other accountable immigration is real. There are people from diverse backgrounds from a world. We just need to sit down and talk and make policy changes that will create a new kind of government and both sides of the government are using it for politics, but I think get yes. We we have to stop I I really like the way he shall Lance bottoms of Atlanta the mirror the black woman mayor of Atlanta said that you know, we heard you stop please stop and we will shut down and recreate the policies and that is why I feel very impassioned and very energized to be part of it because I I still shiver with the voice of George Floyd a grown man of six feet four inches calling for his mother while everybody is watching and nobody's able to do anything about it. People are watching in broad daylight and this is happening in America in my city. I'm sorry. I get very very angry and very impassioned job. This but really this is the reason that everything needs to be Rewritten and I I think that protest is important. Most of it was not all violent. But yes, there is very ugly black spots of violence. So many I think about twenty people died needlessly in these these violent riots and really we need to hold our politicians our policy makers accountable. We really need to sit down as a community as a country to sit and talk nicely talk with manners. Not just the horrible things that we saw on the presidential debate. It was very very unflattering. It was very disingenuous for them to talk like this. This is not what we expect. You know, white men white women Brown men Brown women. We all need to sit and talk properly and sit down and create a new system. Thank you. Okay, America is known as Melting Pot with diversity of people and you know, it adds color to the fabric of this nation. And that is the picture I get when I see America, that's what I see because that's the culture I come from and even though I born in Hindu family and I mean Hindu by living and you know my lifestyle we were taught at a family like, you know, every religion is equal and we need to respect faith of others and you know, you follow your own faith and you respect each other's that's how we grew up and you are asking me Sonia how this British government when my grandfather's time. Affected our family life, you know those days they used to tax on the new clothing. If you are carrying a new clothing in your suitcase when you are travelling you have to pay tax to that home. So always that's how they came to a habit of washing new clothes before wearing them. So my grandmother used to tell me these stories and thoughts. They used to have a very lavish life before my grandfather, you know, given up all the luxury life. He was an international businessman and wearing three-piece suits and all that long. You given up everything and started wearing cardi. So Freedom doesn't come for free. It has a cost to it and your actions life consequences when this country talks about, you know, freedom of speech and freedom and argue our actions creating this, you know, are you going to take the rest off? Possibility for the consequences you are creating and that goes back to the value based education. We are not teaching our kids how to embrace the difference and that needs to be come from families also from schools. And if you are teaching liberalism in schools and you are making more and more jobs are talking about progressive government that leads to benefit the community benefit the society benefit the human kind but it is not benefitting anybody else. I mean, the more Progressive politics are taking effect. It is taking a toll on the general public the law and order should be the very important part of the society. I mean not to abuse but to keep checks and balances in place. I am very very sorry to see I mean, you know, my heart was broken when I saw this Floyd he was just You know struggling to take a breath and his he was saying like I can't breathe. I can breathe. It's like, you know, you just you freeze for a minute. Like, you know, you you don't know what is happening across the movie. Is it just really happening? It's the same thing as when Twin Towers came down. A lot of people thought it was a movie. It is not real. It's just like that. I mean, these are the things which we need to have a neutral platform where people can put their you know, emotions aside and discuss, you know, it is very very sad. What is happening to this black Americans, but at the same time, you know lot of police officers are also getting shot and killed in there are so many jobs and police officers that killed and the children lost fathers just like the Visa Black American people lost their lives and the policies need to be looked at Birth. Even before policies we need to have a different sort of mindset, you know, the values need to be you know, every person's life has a value everybody, you know, everybody has a right to live safely. So it needs the society have to have a seed planted like, you know, we are all dead. Well, we at all United we are all you know, we are different but we are the same when it comes to humankind that is the culture we need to cultivate and if we can cultivate that kind of culture and then understand the policy policies and regulations all these things can only play certain, you know certain role but it's the way of thinking how fast we think and those are the things need to be changed and it needs to be the these values need to be in calculated in children when they were still dead. Young when I teach at chinmaya Mission, these are the values we teach kindness and you know acceptance tolerance and these kind of things and these children are the future of tomorrow and when the kids grow up with this value-based leadership, the country will also change these values doesn't have religion. These values doesn't have color name is values doesn't discriminate. These are the core values which are actually if you read the Constitution these our constitution is built on the human rights natural human rights and when the progressive politics taken place, they don't want anything they if you people want to control the entire country and they want to put more and more regulations and off and more, you know controls in place and they'd want to control the common person's life from what to eat and where to sleep and how to live your life. Yep. That is not the life you want. I mean, this is a free country and how many people sacrificed this country to be this great. And if you do not have learned. You cannot just blame the entire line the other Force because they are these incidents taken place their lot of good people both sides and you cannot blame the page. Are you cannot blame Law and Order for the sad incidents and the political purposes are the ones which are creating these problems and they need to As Long the notes that they need to really sit and talk about these real issues. And also we need to start a dialogue within our communities and with our families when we sit at the table, we need to, you know, after the kids and listen to them and interject when you know with our experiences what we have seen and ask them to think differently Maybe And ask them to see the situation in different perspective and we are not doing those things enough. I mean we may be doing it but not enough and when I talk to my dog about CA and you know, what was happening in Kashmir, they do not know what Kashmir people went through and they they only know they were the cash we were shut down for so many days they without any internet access are all this stuff and they say this is against human right but the situation they do not really understand and the other one they see a lot of these people do not have any right to pass any resolution or anything in the local governments and it doesn't make any sense. And this is the law in India and why these people are doing that you know why you are just doing a Agonist resolution again as the C A and article 370 and all these kind of things you have. No, right? Yep. There is no transparency. These are people are going back and then back on they are just going in a secrecy and making all these decisions without public knowledge that is, you know, those are things that we need to protest very strongly and that's what we are doing and we have a big thing going on in Chicago as well at this time. And this is a one-way is sadly. It is a good thing for the Indian Community to open their eyes to see what these type of planned, you know regulations are creating in this country. I mean, it's it's just nothing to do with the Law and Order of the country, but I'm just saying this is related to that as well. So we need to have learned order in place. We need to respect the land off without that. This country will be like a big mom and the reforms are needed from both sides and the reforms need to be done like one decide about birth. Temple incident these need to be not to punish the people but you know transform the people to see the humanity in their beauty. Thank you. Could I be down load to add something to what what we just said going back to what you said was the British colonialism British historian. Somebody called by the name of Angus dimed and he did a calculation and he said that India had the highest GDP in the last fifteen of the two thousand years slash two thousand years India had the highest GDP of those two thousand fifteen of those fifteen hundred of those years and of those five that it dipped three of those that had the second highest GDP in the world wage. That's why America was founded because people went about looking for India and plunder it and so we know what plundering is. We have been invaded throughout because of the riches a.m. The and I think the riches of India was not just its land but it was also the people and its culture and the predominant religion which is a very encompassing Democratic. Multiflora Multicultural religion that doesn't force you to believe in one ideology or one thought process or puts another person down because they believe it's so awful. If you don't believe in my way of living you will not get to heaven my idea. It's like saying how you know, I I remember reading George Bernard Shaw saying that you know patriotism is the belief that my country Superior to your country because I was born in it and the same thing can be said about Many religious ideologies where we think that we are superior to another because I follow this thought process. So I just wanted you to you know, show some attention that Indians have been persecuted all through the last, you know Millenia and we understand what goes on in the name of racism. And social inequality. We we are not the people we we may not be the model minority that is being portrayed. But we also are not model this minority. We understand the problems that exist. I have a friend who has completely stopped reading any newspapers or televisions because she just so tired of the Toxic City. She says that she falls physically sick because of all the visuals and all the constant barrage of of you know, the anger and resentment negativity. But if you read Steven Pinker the world and countries in general have done better off that the last time the spend demek happened a hundred years ago fifty million people died the world over this time. We have only well one is too many but we have round about a million page out of the eight billion who have passed away because of so, this is definitely signs of progress. We in India last time in 1918 when the British were ruling it six to seven million people died in a second job. And two years. So I think there's definitely room for some positive and uplifting ideology. We are doing fine. I think this is a glitch. I think the way the Republican party is going where they are questioning China and it's every behavior in economics in Espionage in trade in death. And the way that it is being a hegemon to the countries of South Asia. I think the government of today is doing the right thing internationally. I think it can maybe do a little better off the Mystic policy, but I think Trump did a good job. He has proved himself and he gets my vote this time that brings us to the end of another edition of a daisy woman podcast. I would like to thank my guests bandhan a manglik doctor Sri Lanka ballet and vucevic acha. Thank you so much for joining us. Thank you. Thank you so much. For giving us this opportunity Sonia Sonia. Thank you so much to share our views and you know beliefs on this show and hope you'll be on your show again some other time and with a different topics Sonia is sincerely appreciate you giving this opportunity. I do want to say prayers for President Trump. I mean, it isn't true identity that we are in a situation where our beloved President Trump and our float is Melania Trump are always positive. So on behalf of the entire country. This is more of it. This is not even a political process. This is our president of the country that as an American I sincerely pray off of that they get better and they come out of this this tragedy with shrimp and they feel well and they continue to for the job. I mean leadership over our country. Thank you, bye-bye.

We're psyched that you're here. It would be the same if well. None of you had shown up. Can't issue though have now been through. Stars layer as a broadcaster as it. Let's just talk through some for All Star memories before we bring out the. Oh man surprises. We've got Chicago. I grew up in Naperville Chicago area so when I first found out exactly yes yes so when I first found out that all was back in. Chicago is really special to come back home and basketball. I've got booed a lot when I say Chicago's the Mecca of basketball. Because you use that term specifically Lenka that feels I feel like people from New York hit me up and slide in the DMZ like Yo Chill but oh they're wrong. So but I'm I'm really excited to be back for all star first. Nba All star. Experience was in New Orleans as was mind but a different New Orleans than yours. Yours was wait. What Year New Orleans that happened like four or five okay or to the one? That was yeah. Mine was four years ago in New Orleans. Ooh That was so maybe I don't know maybe but mine was. That was my first all star. I was on area. Twenty one with k. g. and then I played in the celebrity game. I got a boat in the chest by Quavo and I realized that was the last celebrity game. They go too hard in the celebrity game other than that. I was there for one of the stars of Grey's anatomy like they had to write it into the show that he had hurt his leg because he so significantly hurt his leg. While we were out there playing they take they take sears. Master P and Romeo. Were going very. They weren't passing to anybody. No Year that I played. Romeo was like our team captain and he gave this very serious halftime speech. And I'm like oh I didn't know that the things that I'm actually surprised you didn't take it more seriously like it's not really my season so it was kind of just like it's a celebrity game so I kind of zinc. They're having a good time trying to pass the ball. Mark Cuban hit some threes. My very first all-star experience was also a New Orleans. I can't figure out if it's the same New Orleans referring to we've had several in New Orleans but I had only signed on with our network to host one season of inside stuff. I had no idea if I was coming back or not and I thought okay. This is the one and only time that I get to be part of. Nba All star weekend. I told Grant Hill if any of you watched inside stuff I just WanNa meet Lebron James. Like I just want to. I just wanted to say hello to shake his hand. A Lotta hugging him. I don't know I just WanNa meet him and secrete was like okay. We'll make sure that we make that happen in the NBA. All Star practice that Saturday morning. He brought me over and he was like run. I want you to meet my co host friend of mine. He goes kristen high. You know that I exist. This cannot be here we are what seven or so later and now. I'm sure he's like what occurs. Do what does it mean to you to be here in your home too. I mean you've got all these people who came just to see you and it's all star weekend in Chicago for the first time since I mean reborn yet the last time it was here too Bayer. Last time I was here in eighty eight. I just dated myself an eighty-eight obviously it was a historical all-star game with Dominique and Michael Jordan going back and forth contest but for me. Chicago the Bulls have have had a lot to do with our upbringing. Here just with basketball. Winning was the bar you grew up thinking that people in cities experienced three petes. And that's not normal. Get twice what eighteen months between. Yes and so Michael Jordan. Obviously my brother played years in the NBA so going in the United Center hoops the gym. I mean everything around Chicago's basketball and sports and so to bring it here. Obviously the weather had other plans. But it stop us from loving all-stars back here. Dominic by the way is still entirely convinced that he won that all of that Slammed on he is. Have you guys heard about? You've heard him talk about it. Second play okay. Well I'm actually judging the slum slam dunk contest this yes. She is a judge and last year. I judged and I got criticized by shack because he thinks that. If you miss a dunk I you shouldn't get inaugural you'll about that because I tend to agree. I think that like the surprise is no longer there. You're right but you still have. I seen what you're GONNA do already and you missed it. I mean delayed and I were on the the judges for the dunk contest. We'll see we'll see how it goes. I'm excited what are some of the criteria that you think creativity? That's the biggest thing we have. Some people that have been in the dunk contest before. And we know Dwight Howard always shows out in terms of bringing in Rennes playing to the crowd and I would challenge the NBA to have instant replay. 'cause Aaron Gordon and Zach Levine. If people write in slow motion have seen what Aaron Gordon yet agree? They would have given him a lot over tired. Yeah I have it frozen on a shirt. That was unbelievable but we just can't see it in real candidate. Exactly what what just happened but epic dunk contests. Who Do you have? What's your all time greatest dunk contests besides besides MJ and Dominico? It's gotta be that one then right it was. I believe four years ago today. No Vince Carter Hang Up. But that wasn't a contest it was a dunk. That was not a contest. That was Vince. Carter show I mean that was the half man half amazing birth of insanity that actually is my earliest memory of watching all star which okay. Here's crazy. Here's what's crazy. And how ageless Vince? Carter actually is. I was in sixth grade and watched Vince do that. It's over now. I've been doing this job for seven years and he still in the NBA. Hal's drinks and he still do. We were trying to get him in the dunk contest this year. But he's not half man half amazing. I think it's more like ninety percent amazing. Ten percent man agreed agreed. All right guys.

That are doing so much with their voice so much with their power and so much with a purpose and obviously you represent Chicago in that way fan you know just your activism just your ability to kind of take the youth and really show them the future so what. Where is the root of that? Where's the foundation of that? I guess it comes from from my parents. My my people were both like very Involved in the city My mom was a hairdresser which doesn't sound like it but it's like when you own a salon. Everybody become a part of that community so she was always very active in high park. My Dad always worked as a community outreach person on politics and otherwise and yeah and I just always felt like I was supposed to be helpful. I guess. Has It hit you yet that that many kids are looking to you for what they could do beyond Chicago beyond the stage on and off the state? It's the reason we wanted you to be here. Yeah I mean inspiration is important and I had like really cool mentors when I was a kid. There's this program is still exists. I think call you media at the library and had this guy name brother Mike. They used to teach me how to hold the MIC and how to memorize verses and all this stuff and and he fully changed my life. Made me want to be a rapper and I just WanNa be would be a good person also. How different is this weekend now? Walking around Chicago as opposed to. Maybe if it had been here seven eight nine years ago I mean I think for one. I was a different person seven years ago. So it's way more fun to be chancellor right now than it was years ago. I mean just I think the idea of all star coming here is like I've been to allstars before this. I want to Los Angeles and before that I went to New Orleans. New Orleans is so greg we were literally you went to north. Yes we can. And it's like the whole city like as far as you can go this way that way that way it's like everybody's involved and his all Starr restaurant deals and all star night at the club and all star. Search everything everything you go to go. It's like you feel and great for commerce and it's great for the community and it's great for people getting really understand the culture Chicago like thank everybody regardless of what you think about Chicago. If you never been here you don't understand it and when you get here and you get to taste the food and see how we dress see how we talk and see how we you know. It's just it's like I'm excited for. The city. Grew up in Naperville and was a huge bulls fan and the impact that the Bulls had my life just in terms of I can remember countdown driveway. Like sticking my tongue out trying to fade away Michael Jordan. Did you play basketball? Grown up and how? Much of an impacted the Bulls have on your upbringing. Yeah I played a little bit of basketball. I play Eighth War Basketball Avalon Park when I was a shorty building but I was never like it was never like a like a personal craft for me like I love music or I like other things but I think the Bulls to me represented like basketball as a whole. I don't know if that makes sense but I feel like Michael Jordan kind of made basketball a global event and made everybody interested in it Beyond you know a sport but like the lifestyle including fashion to and so you know I was born in ninety three so they already one I think and and so it was like it was Kinda something that I just grew up with rather than like watching unfold so it was like. It's integral to me like when I think of Basketball. I think Michael Jordan. I think of Chicago but it's also like a different Mike from me. I think of space jam. I think Michael Jordan the tune squad. Jersey actually here somewhere Ed Center Front and Center. Well then so. What can people expect of your actual flay than in the celebrity game decent? Yesterday I had eleven three. Oh shut out to steal okay. So what I'm saying by fourteen minutes past eleven points and fourteen minutes. Yeah they were all as they what they went in so it doesn't matter and I got my an one so I feel like what I'm good is a good team player. You need the ball. Saying I'm I'm I'm GONNA keep moving. I'M NOT GONNA get tired okay. Cigar yeah the analytics would say you want on your team. Yeah he's a hustle guy. Okay allocated everybody feel like this is important halftime speech kind of thing exactly. I'm calling timeouts. I'm a coach. I'm doing everything I well. We we obviously have seen the commercials honoring Kobe Bryant. And his legacy. And what he's meant and we talk about what Michael Jordan has meant to basketball and obviously Kobe. Bryant has meant a basketball just personally. I saw your instagram. You honored him and his daughter and all the victims of the helicopter crash but what what impact has he had in that. You see that you know. Obviously the crossover appeal of Kobe wasn't just the basketball player. I mean we we wash this kid grow up since he was seven. Yeah and for you to be Your Age. Right around our ages he was. Kobe was on my. I definitely for kids. Growing up in two thousand is like like as Kobe Bryant. And he was doing insane stuff. You know what I'm saying and how I think about it as all my friends that did really hope and who dies school. It was like Kobe was everything to them and I think it really shows and his absence like the lasting effect that he had on so many people in so many NBA players. Currently that you know are closer to my age. That grew up. Really you know revering and idolize him like to understand the impact on the game and what a toll it took on us when when we lost him as as really remarkable to see and I just think when I think about Kobe Bryant I think about the fact that as most people do now a really good father really involved father and and so I think about him more on it. I think I usually do this whenever somebody passes. I think about the humanity of them and just like what they were doing when we didn't see them on the screen and they weren't trying to entertain us like what they were devoting their time to and while he was probably the most focused and intentional player on the Corey was also the most focused and intentional filer. That I've seen representative real life so I think about that a lot and it makes me cherish the time I have a my daughters and just you know hope that has you know heals quickly from this. Because we've seen girl dad trending mountain weeks. You're a girl Dad Kennison. I grew up with girl. Dad's her girl. Dad is actually in the building right here right there. Hey and it made all the difference for candice for me. Defoe the weight the responsibility of being a girl debt. Oh totally yeah I mean it's just historically the world hasn't been kind to win and it's a scary thought being a man of being witnessed to it and sometimes you know The person perpetrating that those violations once you become a father. I mean. That shouldn't be the time that you figure it out but you really start to just worry about the world the world is bogus and so I think like that fear and over protectiveness and I'm sorry I don't not necessarily over protectiveness but just like feeling of wanting to protect your child. I think is intensified. When you have girls I would no. I only have two girls on but I think that like yeah. I'm extremely amazed and in love with both of my daughters. I don't even know. I think I forgot the question. Just thinking about my kids book is that right. They're being girl at what? We're talking about itches. Seeing the possibilities I have a daughter. That's ten and the way that she's grown up a little bit different than I've grown up in Kristen. I always talk about how we try to do things now. That are hard. Maybe for us to make it better for her. But this isn't a question but to say it means a lot because I think it has to come from people like you. It has to come from men saying that okay. This has to stop in. We have continue to treat people. I mean you know my nephew walks around with my jersey now and it's okay you know when I was growing up it was like you're wearing a girl's Jersey like that's not okay and so to hear you say that you know gives hope for young girls to be able to do whatever they WANNA do. Thank you yeah I mean so crazy world out there man. I feel like everybody is like Mike if you have kids in school right now. It's probably like the scariest thing of all time and I think about a lot what you were just saying like like. I grew up different. Obviously because my parents weren't famous so like it was I went to Public School Day camp. I did you know we took public transportation and things were very different and I and I feel like sometimes. There's a certain pride in me that wants to be like. Oh my kids are GonNa grow up just like I grew up. But it's just that's just not what it is and you have to protect your kids and you have to be attentive to how the world is functioning and try and impress upon something that makes it better but at the same time you deal with reality and it's not it's not. It's not just about what you've accomplished on stage. Which is stunning. It's incredible but it's about who you are off the stage. It's about your faith that influences every part of who you are. And the impact. You've decided that you're going to have as one with a voice in this generation and we're grateful that you even showed up. Thank you so awesome. Show off to be on it but we like to play little games the guests that we have on the show the game is titled. Chancer or no chance. No chance so if there's a chance you say there's a chance if there's not then you say there's no chance it's pretty much self explanatory we're gonNA bust out some scenarios here and you tell us if there was a chance or no chance. Here's the first one. You're going to bring out a special guest during your halftime show. A here's the second one you're going to tell us who it is picture. Okay so you're known to say that you don't eat veggies like he doesn't ever doesn't eat vegetables so you'd need a Veggie to show your daughter that they're good for you chance. I've done that before. He wants to be just one. I can't eat a bean hang sample. Do men in this. You're Chicago Bulls make playoff push. You don't have to answer that even feel bad. Even ask three here. You can feel the booze. He didn't say what year so definitely. There we go there. We go always a chance I so I will give out. Oh Perfect score as a dunk contest. Judge in this year's this year's dunk contest. Definitely okay. She's picky yeah. I know a little bit about what's going on so I think oh it's GonNa be fire. Yeah Oh premium Bassett or so I get this Intel. Wow must be well. How much can you share with us? No chance all right. You'll go to Kenny Party. I mean I don't know if you know but there's a there's a Kennedy Smith Party. How many of you know that? Kenny's party is a defining moment of each and every NBA. All Star. Weekend to people in the back. I went there. I guess there's a chance I didn't know about it. So there's so many events going on. I don't think I'M GONNA make it to a lot here. So no no. Oh he's he's he's kidding. He said there was a chance okay. He's had a chance paycheck coming. Yes checks thrown. His Jay. Charles will absolutely be there a stable at be there for sure you will score ten points in the celebrity game trance. I'm going to Vegas on that. Yeah let's do it. Okay you bet on me for ten points. How about this? The final one team. Lebron Beats Tian. Strong chance of that happening has has team. Lebron loss dead since they started doing I know is Lebron is making a case for himself as a GM put together a team. Yeah so even listening to strategies. He's drafting those and he didn't have no he was just like nope picks. Jonah had notes prepared. It's okay chance we cannot thank you enough for being here today you are awesome. We have had led Lohan Parker in Chicago. Without having you here I mean well. There was a chance that we would have had to do without you here however I appreciate you being here. Thank you problems.

But I think probably the most impressive. He's on his resume is that he is candace. Parker's all time favorite player and I hid you. Not when I say it. That is my favorite thing to me because look at what she did list say. Now can I just tell you growing up in Chicago growing up in naperville watching the Chicago Bulls? Ron Harper was my favorite. All Time player. I'll this is a true story. This is a true story. My brother played in the league and we were able to be at the United Thinner and Michael Jordan was right. There in the intolerable team was right there and I went straight to Ron Harper. I took a picture with him and it was on my wall until I left for school until we moved from that house. My Dad is in the house and can attest to that. And I mean honestly I love your heart your energy what you brought to the team. A lot of people don't remember that used to give him Jay Flexes. When you play with the Caz I'm just saying but it is a true honor for for me to sit here. I got the Jersey. I'm a rock on. So she told me that she had looked everywhere for this Jersey and she wasn't able to find it so thank God deal because the entirety of this show is about sliding in watching how successful. Something can become a show like this. Yes so we are honored to have you today here. What has Chicago basketball? I know you've played for other teams but Chicago was nicer car. There's no good. I want a tendency of with the Los Angeles Laker team couple couple with the but a nothing like Chicago fans. They are terrific. The riff as cargo was honored to play here was a great place to play before I came here and then I had a chance to come and play here and I was like wow then I got my first shit. I'll I M J man I really. I'm I'm Jay Farner Amigo. I got four hundred. I gotTA get a couple more rate. I say whatever just wanted to be a part of something man. I was asking her what it meant to have all star weekend in Chicago here. We're but it's been thirty. Two years our policemen that dunk contest. That really got hurt. The game before the host break in a dunk like can barely walk. We'll so as much as we talk about. Perhaps Dominique ship know as much as dominique talks. About how money should have won. I say this love. No no no no anyway would be. I was at the show. I was sitting at the end and I wanted to do that. I'm going tit for tat. And I'm like Dominique how in I'm like. Yeah Okay you right. This is a cargo right. I'm Michael Yeah so those Deng State. Mj Did did you see more in practice. Because that's on your choice on the biggest stage. Let me tell you the first story for thirty concerts. I was in my first year my rookie year. We was in Seattle in day. You know male afraid. We're talking try. Don't contemplate it. I'M GONNA kiss the room I said. Let's get real wants to well? You ought to do so. He moved back and he came in. He like leaning like this like a thin play. I'm like Oh yeah he did. He came over to visit you. Did you have a year? I Would Watch you talk now. Anything impress you now and dot com to I mean. Is there anything that could happen this weekend? That you'd say this. I was impressed. But there's a lot of great dunk the creativity of dunk contests not there. No more we need some God to bring creativity back you know. Don't bring them by out to the ball and bounce it you know but don't you think as fans a little bit we're kind of oversaturated because you can get on Youtube and that's the thing it's like you get on Youtube and you see the best dunk and now you have like fifteen. Sixteen year olds jumping over. People like Carter did so. We're almost like yeah. We've seen that. Not impressed sensitized. Dunks listen I tell my son my son not he could miss. The Kid may play sure. That's true okay. Can you play journalist Michael Jordan Coppola dumb to work with? Where WAS IT SPLIT? What's the President I think? That's what made it look more impressive. Yeah I mean is one of my best friends and we do a ball dude you before. What's true six man? He five four five six four. Oh my goodness well I just wanted. Lastly some advice because I'm judging I'm judging the dunk contest big and you know as a big I feel like we get penalized for our size a little bit. And we're you know. Dwight Howard could do the same dunk. But it's not as impressive. Because he's so tall so I just want to know. Do you believe 'cause Chris and I had. This argument was dead. If if somebody misses the dunk and then the next dunk. They do is like impressive? Can they get attend if you take two tries? I'm good with two thousand. Six seven eight nine ten right. I felt like I can't sit down like days ago by overalls. If you miss a replacement for no time on the clock thirty seconds and make you dunk three times. Let's get you a dog. It'll replacement though you get three dunks week.'. Sit there all night with top quoted. Bill set right man. Y'All laugh fifty six. I Guy Products six times so convincing. He's almost like you could do. Who Do you think wins this weekend? I would like to see the old head. The white reinvent himself he stabbing a great year this year. You know some things about him. I'm happy to see that. He himself until the pride and strong people that he can still play the game of basketball. And I wouldn't mind seeing him get Saddam. But Aaron Gordon Lia is GonNa be vengeance right tough to be okay. Got Some stuff on him. Well I we were in hopes. Ano- everybody was with Dianne Williamson before he got hurt. This Zion would be in the dunk contest because it's honestly some of his endgame dunks. This year alone has been impressive. I don't I don't know if you you like the youth or what's up and coming in the NBA. We've got a bright future with NBA. With trae young with Dianne Williamson. Obviously Luca and even John Moran. You're not doing the dunk contest. But what what stars do you look to kind of take that to the next level take the NBA? To the next level? It'd be the game had shades of gray youth player on me trae shooter for have cool or you got Buca He. He's a great European playboy. He coming over here and showing people that he can play in the United States on the NBA. Big stays young players. It's exciting to see that we ain't GonNa get the same teams again from the guy. The Lakers those dynasty with Russia. Though here it's doing the. Mta was ten years in the League. I was ten years. A Scotty was eight nine years. You know now about the youth players. If they can mature we can keep on the same basketball team which on a build a super team like the booth build a super tail light came as Furry Rada here so it. Kinda just fell in when I got here. Mta was retired. And then the next thing I know he was at a jail more than me. And I'm sitting around you. Coming back. Edgy like Nah. I'm not playing. I'm so I said you to me day right. All-star break we got back and there was no. I'm back and feel it. I'll like my plenty of time. Let me see my boys. Play to feel. Feel just hanging there. I'm going to figure it out. I'm figuring out the first time we played in New York City dropped five five so I'm sitting on the bed right at the end of first quarter field goal Goget.

That's friends without the our best fiends. It's curious city from wbz. Hey it's curious city editor alexandra. Solomon and today we're bringing you part two of our special series on education in the time of cova and it's thanksgiving so later we take a moment to hear what you're grateful for last week with the help. Wbz's education team. We heard stories of what it's been like for people trying to adjust to school during a pandemic for teacher dealing with burnout the screen time. It is insane. An imam trying to make ends meet and keep her young kids in front of a screen in spreader. They go to school. Not safe right now but this school year has ended all kinds of challenges for older students as well everything from college entrance exams to figuring out how to stay safe while living on campus. So did he. We're checking in on those students for the past few months education reporter. Suzanne has been following to high schoolers as they navigate their junior year a year. Where there's a lot at stake. When it comes to getting into college leslie gomez is a junior at zion. Benton township high school in chicago's northern suburbs in jordan king goes to naperville north high school. I started our conversation by asking. Susie why these two teens so i wanted to talk to a student at a well resource school and a student at a school that has less funding. And i wanted to see how access to resources is affecting remote learning especially when it comes to helping students through the whole college application process which really starts in earnest junior year. And that's how. I landed on jordan at naperville school. That's in the wealthy suburb of naperville. And leslie at zion. Benton which is more working class area and it quickly became clear that leslie and jordan weren't thinking about resources. They're just trying to make it through a really strange year so tell me about the student at the school with less resources. Tell me about leslie yes. She's a very gentle softspoken. Kind of girl you know shy but very close to her family and over the summer. Both of leslie's parents actually contracted covid. I her father who didn't really seem to have too many symptoms at most. It was a cough so it wasn't too bad but then her mother got it and it was more serious for her so they had a separate everyone in the house. watched her siblings downstairs and then her dad who was an so bad shape. was taken care of her mother. Upstairs here's leslie. And he was the one who basically went to bring my mom food in like we were never link allowed upstairs until like better. Yeah when we're kind of glad that it was all over before school starting because they would have been a little bit tougher breast. Yeah so leslie is the oldest of three kids and since her parents got sick she and her family have been pretty cautious So luckily it doesn't go out much. She spends most of her time at home watch. Tv we try to play board games with acta while kinda got boring. Really do tv so now that school has started. How has that been going for her. You know. I think there is a certain novelty to the first few days or weeks of school so she got up early know. She got up rarely prepared herself. Got breakfast and logged in to class but the novelty has worn off. Sort of like hours and hours of class on the screen Don't love it. But hey i get to just kind of hanging out Embed don't even have to have camera on you know she says yeah. I mean people have always told her junior year is really hard. And you've got to hunker down for her she. She looks at it in a different way. She says it's tough. It is tough right now. But she thinks that it's actually tougher. Everybody e yeah honestly make hard for everyone versus like a lot of work on line and he goes a little bit more close right now. My sister gives like a lot of work. If she's only a freshman so. I feel like this year isn't hard as the union book review. One all right. Tell me about the other student. you've been following jordan. What what she like. So jordan is a very outgoing go-getter type of teen. She's got a lot of extracurriculars. She's not letting the pandemic stop her social life and here's how she describes herself as a student. I really during school. I get really anxious about everything in so staying on top of my work definitely makes me feel better silver jordan. She is also doing remote schooling And you know she wasn't so sure about it at first. It's it's just you know hours again hours and hours online. A recently her school switch to a block schedule where there are days where it's a synchronous. So she's not logged in but she's got assignments that she's doing and you know she she seems to be really thriving in this kind of schedule but you know she's also a typical teen and i remember in high school not really being into gym class. When you're remote. I'm sure that's Probably even more of a dragon. This is sort of howa. Jordan describes it during class. We do breathing techniques or it's pilates or something like that and honestly i. She tells us turn our cameras off. I don't think everybody's doing it. I mean no don a couple dogs but for the most part jordan is a pretty engaged student you know she is someone who will get up early and will even grab breakfast with a friend before class. She's got a little desk setup under her lofted bed and jordan is also super-busy outside of class. You know she's got a number of student panels. she's on. She has a time job at a teen center. She just has a lot of extracurriculars which are pretty key to getting into college. Enjoyed his always heard. Junior year is very critical year for your high school career. You know it has a lot of influence on your post graduation life but us says things have been going. It feels a lot easier and more manageable than maybe it normally would have been. If school was all in person in some ways she actually prefers online school. And what about leslie then. Well as far as college prep Leslie really hasn't heard from counselors about post graduation plans you know thinking about college. She's pretty busy with an after school job in ice cream shop in besides she tells me she's focused on the problems of right now. Sure i wanna go to college at some point. But i can't think about that right now. So after spending several months with these kids. What are your biggest as far as you know how. The pandemic is affecting them. You know going into it. I guess i was expecting to find a dramatic difference between a well resourced school and a school. That doesn't have as many resources. But i'm finding that it was sort of the same story before the pandemic say for sure if the pandemic is having a dramatic effect on it for a student like going to a well resource school. I mean you know. She's doing as maybe we would see her do in a typical year. And the same goes for leslie. I think we might have seen her in a very similar situation. Had we not had the pandemic of resources has always been there and now that we've got this pandemic. it's still a question. But i think we've just shifted help. People how students how schools are handling it. But you know we're not even done with the semester yet and you know the pandemic it's gonna keep going so we'll see where leslie jordan go next leslie in jordan make their way through junior year reporter. Kate mcgee has been talking to students who graduated high school during the pandemic. And now they're college freshman up with several of these freshmen and she shared some of their stories with me. She started by timea about a smile. Who's currently on campus at colorado college east. My l. is a very outgoing funny guy who graduated high school here in chicago and always knew that he wanted to leave for college. I wanna try to leave my cover space. I wanted to explore things. I wanted to leave chicago. He also wanted to get out of his house and kind of get that freedom. He lives with a multigenerational family of eleven people so he was like ready to go now. I'm here colorado. He had to you know get tested and then was basically allowed to have a quote unquote typical college experience. Living in the dorm rooms meeting friends with social distancing and he's not having any classes in person so he's still taking classes from his dorm room like many students but he's still able to kind of be on his own and try new things but colorado college pretty quickly on it once. The semester started had cases popping up on campus. And so he and everyone else got an email one day early in the semester saying or twelve. It was like love at noon today. Everyone in these three on campus dorms have to quarantine in place for two weeks and that men have to simmer recycle owners. If i want to go water bottle go use the bathroom or shower. I think about like my own college dorm room. And i'm just like oh my god like spending two weeks in. That would be insane. We do have an hour outside. What are you doing that our or not. As the school every day came over and brought like bags of three meals a day breakfast lunch and dinner. Water jews soda. I know the gave me a role. Burs apple is a good analogs anything through meals a day so it sounds like being on campus. Hasn't always been easy but what about college students doing it remotely. I think for the students who are still at home in their childhood bedrooms. This doesn't really feel like college at all. You know the student who is attending the university of illinois chicago. Her name's julia one thing. She did to kind of cope with the fact that she was starting college without actually leaving her home was she completely redid her childhood bedroom. This room was bright. Pink and magenta. Before so i was like okay. We are remodelling my room. Just so i kind of have like a fresh start. She used to do like pageants as a girl and so she liked hot rid of all these trophies and like stuff that was kind of reminding her of being a kid. I can't live like this anymore. She painted the walls like gray and got these like fairy lights. It looks much more like a college dorm room. everything simple. There's not a delicious vibe going on like everything's kind of like okay. Hey more a little bit more adult like a little bit less childhood fantasy but she also has questions about whether all the money she's paying is worth it all. They made us pay fees for like the rec center in for like faculty maintenance and stuff like that for the library. All these things that she's not getting any use of this semester but still paying for and wondering like why am i having to pay for this it just kind of like you're paying for what seems like a glorified a youtube videos. But a lot of students are really even if they're not completely thrilled with the conditions that prevail. There are really trying to make the best of it. They understand what they're missing and they seemed to kind of more than that but they also are the same group of kids who missed out on prom missed out on their high school graduations and didn't really get closure from their high school experience and i think for the students on campus. You know they've just spent five or six months at home during the pandemic and any sort of taste of freedom is is worth it. Sure and i think i've been surprised and a little like heartened by just how well they're all adapting to There are situations the final student. That i've been following her. Name's elizabeth. she's from the chicago suburbs and his attending university of illinois at urbana-champaign and she was also very adamant that she wanted to get out of the house and have that freedom of being on campus and also felt like she just focus better being an dorm and she kind of brought this up to me that my entire life really hasn't been a traditional experience. Everything's been dead for that. It was supposed to be this generation in particular. You know they were born just after nine eleven. And we've always been told like oh before nine eleven. Everything was so nice. She didn't have to go through all the security at the airport and he just like lived in the nineties. A world was so different. Things were easier and now another big moment that she's been looking forward to was kind of taken away from her high school graduation. This start of college and so they're just like a they have a different mindset about the world being less of a guarantee and. I think that that's made them be a little bit more resilient so i feel like i've kind of been used to it my because it's been happening my entire life so what's freshman year of college senior high school. You know okay. So do you have a sense of what happens next. In the academic year for those who are on campus across the country most schools are ending in person college. Right at the thanksgiving break so students will go home and continue their fall semester from home for the patent next few weeks until winter break use my l. is going to stay on campus through thanksgiving to kind of prevent maybe bringing cova back to his own family. That might be immuno-compromised so there you know. There's always exceptions to how students are dealing with this. But i think seeing how students handle kind of the return home and then the return possibly back for the spring semester is still kind of an outstanding question and also just the fact that it's getting colder and we're not going to be able to go outside as much i think there's a lot of concern about the winter months and how colleges are going to be able to handle that and keep cases down so a lot to kind of be determined as the months go on Thanks kate mcgee for that reporting and thanks to the whole. Wbz education team for making this series possible and speaking of thank yous week curious cities monica ing check back with several question nascar's and some of the experts who've helped answer your questions and she asked them what they're grateful for this thanksgiving that's next and we're back. I'm curious city reporter monica. Hang and it has been a tough year but here curiousity. We've gotten through it because of you our listeners and the experts that help answer your questions today. We're checking back in with a bunch of people we've met this year and asking them something. You might have heard around the thanksgiving table. So can you tell me. What are you thankful for this year. I thought about this a couple of days ago. And i had a few good things and now i should have written down i talked to own. Pushed gardner extraordinaire nicole. Virgil she's been fighting to legalize backyard hoop houses in illinois which can grow veggies well into the winter. It hasn't happened yet but she says there's still plenty to be thankful for this here. Okay i remember okay. So we are still eating potatoes and leeks and That makes potato leek suit and sell potatoes with leaks. So i'm really grateful for the abundance bouncy this year next up we checked in with ricardo sermon. He and his wife marcella had twin boys this year and they asked us about the safety of family. Visits during the pandemic marcella appreciates the warm fall weather but allowed family and friends to visit outdoors and ricardo appreciates their help the india for us either through texts Video chad or dropping off chocolate chip cookies. Father and son. Chris and evan robinson asked us last spring. Why chicago has so many thai restaurants fifteen year. Old is a big foodie and when he's not remote learning you can probably find him cooking. Thankful that me and my family have been able to just have funded the kitchen To experiment and try different things that we wouldn't have had time to do otherwise he's dead. Chris says he's glad his two other kids away at college are staying healthy. This fall manage to keep themselves safe and secure. And it's very tempting to not but they've done a very good job of that we talk to dorian sylvain about plywood murals earlier this year and these days the mural list is thankful for fellow artists. We have all been looking out for each other in these crazy cova times. She's also grateful for support local artists from the hyde park art center. Miguel blunk our junior leads. A team called core that does community cova testing in little village. He's grateful staff and says thanksgiving is his favorite holiday. And unfortunately this year. I i live alone. I'm single so i'll spend it alone More likely than not working actually. Yes working In addressing this pandemic Because even over the weekends and evenings You know word for me doesn't stop. Finally we talked with bella gandhi. She's the founder of chicago smart dating academy and she helped us on virtual dating story this year. Bella has found a silver lining to remote romance drink. Cova times people are more able to get to know each other on a granular level. It almost goes back to old school courtship versus thinking on the third day. You've gotta make out with someone or jump into bed with them. It was great to hear from all these folks again and to know that even during these tough times there are still a lot to appreciate a big. Thank you to all who listen. Send us questions and help answer them. Happy thanksgiving curious cities grateful for the support of the conan family foundation. Thanks conan family and for all your questions keep on coming. You can send them our way. Wbz dot org slash curious city bowl so grateful for the wonderful production on this episode from stephen jackson. Our music is from blue dot sessions. I'm on a gang.

Episode 184 - A Deep Dive into Digital Assistants in the Smart Home

"So you probably heard about them, possible at this point, but what about ovens with artificial intelligence or food, robots, making hamburgers, pizzas and Rahman? And what's this about? Meet growing labs. My name is Michael Wolff hosted the tech show with Michael every week on the podcast. We'll could how what we eat is changing. It has new innovators crave food unlike anything we've seen before. We talked to interesting people ranging from celebrity chefs to vendors creating food literally out of the air. We breathe, so if you're interested in how the world of food is changing, WANNA listen to the podcast. Check out the food. Tech Show with Mike Wolf on wherever you get your podcast. Hey this is Adam justice this week on the smart home show Richard and I wanted to dive in deep on each of the major smartphone platforms talk about their capabilities, intricacies, technologies, and the differences between them I. Hope you enjoy our discussion. Back. Everyone I'm Richard Guenther from the digital media is welcome to the smart home show. Join as usual by my co host Adam justice from connect sense Adam. Hey, how're you doing doing pretty well? Lots going on but WE'RE GONNA try and keep our focus on tech today and Today. We're going to talk. A lot about the different digital assistance and the smart home ecosystems that they support. We're GONNA, compare them head to head and focus on their suitability to control and automate your and to a large extent, our own homes so I think it's GonNa. Be a fun conversation. Yeah, looking forward to diving in. So to start off the show before we get into the smart home talk, I have a question for Richard. Which is Where do you live? And how did you end up? There so I am. Someone who left my hometown as soon as I got my first job out of college and no negative feelings toward home. I just knew that I. didn't WanNa grow up in the suburbia where I lived and when I got a job in. I guess it was well. I'm not going to mention the air. It was a long time ago. My first of Outta. College was in the Washington DC area and Northern Virginia, and I have lived in this area short of very short like under a year stints in. Both Indianapolis and San Francisco. But almost always I've spent time and lived most of my life in the DC area most of it in actually Washington DC. And then about five. No, it's been seven already about seven years ago, my partner and I moved out to the Annapolis area which is kind of? A suburb of DC itself. And we've been out here. We moved out here because his business partner and their kids moved out. He is their Godfather, and so we wanted to be close to the kids and I wanted to live on water, and managed to accomplish both of that by coming out to Annapolis how about you? I thought it was interesting, you said. You didn't WanNA. You didn't want to stay where you where you grew up and the the place where you were you, you know. went to high school, and all that I was kind of the same way, I. Grew up in the western suburbs of Chicago in a suburb called NAPERVILLE. It's like the third or fourth largest city in Illinois and i. was just kind of over it when when I was done with high school has like F. This place. I'm Outta here. Seal later NAPERVILLE. And went off to college and then after college. Sort of flirted with the idea of living downtown Chicago. And there were kind of two things that we're working against us at the time, which is my? Girlfriend quickly thereafter, fiance had a dog and having a dog in the city is a major major limiter and we both had cars to. And we both worked in consulting, so we weren't around during the week. Allot so paying like twice as much to live in the city for a place that we're not gonNA be at didn't make a ton of sense, so we kind of hopped around the suburbs a little bit. And ultimately once we had kids. It made sense to. Get them in a place where the schools were really good, and we ended up back in Naperville so. As much as much distaste as I had for it as a as a teenager I realized. It's actually a really great place to raise children and great schools, and all that and so We bought a home here about five years ago. and I really enjoy it, so it's. It's Nice live near the trains. We can get into the city. We're about thirty miles west of Chicago. I can get in the city and a half an hour on an express train so that that makes it really easy. Don't do it a lot I. do it every once in a while. But not a lot lately, so. Yeah true. If you have a question that you want to. Help US Open the show with You can always send those questions to us on twitter with the HASHTAG. Ask Ataman Richard. All right well. Let's dive into our conversation and we're going to start this off like we often do kind of laying the foundation, so our first segment today is going to be talking about and comparing the different digital assistant platforms. And specifically the capabilities that they offer in terms of smart home, management and smart homes support the second half of the show. We'll talk more about their different features and how they compare in that area, so let's start with the digital assistance. There are really three main players here, Amazon, Google and Apple! And each of those main players has their respective voice assistant. Now I may shock you here. I am going to say her name. We think we've pulled this off in a way that will prevent it from actually causing devices to do anything, but the voice assistance for Amazon Google and apple are Alexa the Google assistant and Siri respectively now on the smart, home platform side. Amazon also named their platform Alexa. Google's platform is known sometimes as Google home. But if you get a works with badge as a manufacturer, you're certified as working with Google Assistant. That's a little bit confusing. I would say the platform is Google Assistant for sure. That's really what they brandon it all under and their devices Google home got it and the APP experience. As a smart home user. The branding is Google home, so that's. I think that's kind of confusing. I have a hard time with that and a lot of. That's just because they're like. They have just very defiantly. Put their feet in the sand and said we are not coming up with a name for our assistant. Then on the apple side. We have home kit home kit. IS THE SIRI driven? Ecosystem that supports smart home on Apple's platform so. It's hard to keep track of all these different brands. All these different names also worth mentioning. Microsoft has Cortana they have backpedalled furiously in any of the home oriented stuff. They did there, so I believe that if they're not already disabled on most platforms anything that allow you to control your smart home through Cortana will be disabled shortly and then Samsung of course has bixby, which is limited to expe- or Samsung devices. I think you can get a bixby APP but I don't know anybody that uses. That isn't using Samsung devices actually I don't know anybody that uses. Feel be about that, yeah! you know. Maybe maybe Microsoft's waiting until they can have like the full hollow. Lens version of Cortana and then they'll put some more development back into it so absolutely. Everybody's GonNa. WanNa wear one of those things. Yeah, exactly all right, so let's let's. Turn back and look at how these things all got started for Amazon. Alexa introduced as the lady in the Echo Tube. So you bought an echo device that came out roughly around November, two, thousand, fourteen, and Alexa was the assistant that onboard. It came out supporting. Limited smart home stuff switches bowls stuff like that. It didn't do a whole lot at the time. And they eventually built that ecosystem of time. Yeah, in a limited number of manufacturers to it was really only people that they were working with directly like Philips. Hue and we mail. Yeah, right? It was the big brands have t t t I think was one of the originals. Ended of course that extends their capabilities quite a bit, but it was a very tight circle of initial devices and manufacturers, also worth limiting that and original echo device. You had to be on a special list for, and it was like this slow rollout. Betas sort of thing, a generally available device, so even though it came out in November twenty fourteen I would say was well into two. Two Thousand Fifteen before, really people were able to buy them on Amazon. Yeah, that's a really good point. Now on the Google assistant side grew assistant kind of came out looking a whole lot like a me too product because they announced at Google I O in two thousand sixteen that they were coming out with his Google home device, and it would have their assistant built into it. Curiously this had nothing to do with nest which owned at the time. I think that raised a lot of eyebrows at the time since that has changed and. I have to believe that some of the origins of this were in what Google is trying to do years back with their. Google at home program, but nothing ever really became of that, so I get the feeling that they were kind of pushed into getting something out there with the Google home devices because of. The echoes that Amazon came out with the year before. Yeah I. Think you saying this sounded felt like a lot of me too thing I think they saw what was going on at Amazon and the momentum that they had, and you know largely copied what worked from that platform? And since then they've been able to diversify and kind of make their own, but largely. I think they were targeting a lot of what Amazon was doing to try to. You know, kick started and and get it going, and by the way guess what Google already did really well voice recognition, searching for results answers to questions out of the gate. The responses that you got from your Google assistant were far better and more varied then. I would argue even then what you can get from Alexa today. Yeah I, say! You know we're going to talk more about our stuff later, but the one thing I definitely use Google Assistant. The most four in my home is asking those complicated questions. Yep Yep. I already agree with that. And then home kit was initially announced it ww DC in two thousand fourteen. That event occurs in June each year, and it was built on top of series, which was an acquisition. From a third party company. Syria was actually an APP that I had on my iphone well before it was something that apple owned. and. Their idea, there were at least the way they presented. It was that you had voice control of stuff in your home. Through the platform that they had already previously released. Didn't actually come into fruition. Until the next year, June of fifteen, and at the time, just like before, it was only a handful of initial. Devices Lutron e Kobe instantly on I home, and I'll Gado now known as eat that that branch being separate group now eve. That was it and I think you've told the story about how even before those devices hit the market? Your product was already certified. Yeah, our good old badge of have lots of war stories from this from twenty fifteen, but. Yeah our badge of honor being that we were the first to ever get certification. But unfortunately, since we had never done a mass market product in China. We were behind on some of the manufacturing stuff so. I think we released in October November of two thousand fifteen, so we were a little bit behind that I way, but pretty closely there after and all of these other manufacturers all ready had what I would consider to be like not mass market, but popular consumer brand products already in market. So, they had that bit of a leg up there now let's take a look at the the way. These platforms are implemented and I think Adam. You probably have much better insight into this as a device manufacturer than most consumers would. Looking at it from. About how these are set up? The Alexa platform and Google assistant platform seemed to be fairly similar in how developers might approach it essentially. You're using API's that they make available to you. And your either releasing a skill in the case of Alexa or an action and some other stuff in the case of Google assistance. Is that a fair summary of how they're laid out? Yeah I would say There's kind of two avenues, though probably in both cases where there's smart home, specific Api's and ways to address smart home devices, and then there are custom skills which you can do to do all kinds of crazy things. These are in both cases. US cloud based API, so I think one of the things that Google definitely copied that. the Amazon ecosystem was so successful with is the didn't require you to do anything different with your hardware. If you could talk to the Internet, you could talk to Alexa so. By doing this, they enabled a lot of people to write integration with Alexa by just connecting via their cloud, and so you know Google did that as well because it just lowers the barrier to entry to getting connected to that ecosystem. Got It got it. Yeah and. I think the thing that's really interesting with them. Is that like you said in addition to their smart Home Api's than they have these other things that you can just build. That are custom. For the most part I think that's kind of where home kit diverges a little bit. Home Kit seems to be built. Around this idea that? We apple no and define what every different type of device that you can control through home kit is and let you know what you're capable of doing with those devices with those devices than if you want as a developer, you can build other. Say Attributes and capabilities on top of the framework that we provided you. Yeah I mean I think from an engineering perspective, the first two. Google. Like that's my my cloud and software engineers that are doing that work home kit work all happens at the firmware and device level, so there really is. I'll go into a tangent, but there really is not a lot done at the device level to support Alexa and Google with the with the exception being the Google. local API. But from the home kit perspective. That's all done on the device. And that's mostly to do with how home cket talks, which is on the local network right right exactly and. That's probably the biggest differentiator between all of these is that? In less you're talking about. Access. which is really the only time that you're? Kinda getting. Using the Internet at all here home kit. Stuff is all local control. And I think when we talk about privacy later. That's going to be an important piece of that, but yeah, that's to say also that in the home kit scenario they control all remote access. Right now if you're some form of hardware manufacturer in you need to get your hardware certified as working with one of these platforms, they all have their own respective certification processes right and I think you've mentioned that some are more painful than others. Yes, so we'll, we'll start from the most painful down to the least. apple is definitely the most painful originally. They were certifying devices. Their engineers. Now that process is done with a third party lab in most cases unless it's like a new. they you know they make the rules, but for the most part it's done with a third party lab The certification and you know the objective of certifying devices is to make sure they comply with the standards such that you have a good solid experience, and so we're GONNA. Talk about that more later, but I think that's one of the benefits that comes from this. So you know that that process can be grueling. I think some of my My war wounds from those for very early days where they were actively. Developing the standard and so I always compared it to like a playing a video game level on hard that you get a little bit further, and then you die, and then you get a little bit further and you die, and so in some cases they'd be like all right go fix these three things, and then we'd fix those three things, and then they'd they'd read the standard and we we've. We had fixed the three things, but now now now this requirement here okay gotta go fix those things, and so that's literally what we're doing working very closely with them are Wifi. Manufacturer and our team to do that and so I think being small agile team is why we were that I to certify. Really closely with the WIFI provider and the folks at Apple, so some of that process was more painful than others I would say. I don't know that we've ever six I think actually on the in Wall we've. We passed on the first time through. Every, other time there's been multiple trips to certification. Nice, that's that's quite a. Quite a badge, yeah, and I think we've certified now. We have some of our own devices, but we've probably certified six or seven different hardware devices with some of the partners. We worked with and things like that, so we've learned things along the way we've gotten a little bit better at it and I think apple's also made the process simpler and better way and I think important note like you're sending in that hardware the first time, and then as you update it, you can run some self certification tests and things like that, so you don't have to send that in every time. A lot of that is automated down the line, but that's I think a bit. Bit of why why it could be a little bit painful. If you WANNA have a works with Alexa, badge. I think you can actually create a smart home integration, and if you don't want the works with Alexa branding, you don't have the Senate anything in I don't don't quote me on that but I think that's the rule, but if you want to be able to say, works with Alexa have the badge, have the marketing all that stuff, then you do have to send it into a lab. It's very similar now to the apple process. They work with a third party lab. Have to run it through certification. Google the last time we did it. have. You did have to send it into a lab. They've now since made it a self certification process, so they've simplified it. You don't have to send them any hardware anymore. Interesting all right well. Let's talk about hardware. Let's talk about the devices that. Specifically that kind of host, these assistance or the devices that you use to access these ecosystems and again we'll start with Amazon on the Amazon side. They build Alexa into echo devices, speakers and displays. It's built in to Amazon fire, tablets and fire. TV. It's built into the DASH wand device. If you remember that one of them hanging in my pantry. Is Built into third party devices and speakers like Sonos, and like the echo be four thermostat so. There are lots of ways you can interact with Alexa. Not all of them are through Amazon. Specific or echo devices you can also use. APPs to access Alexa like the Alexa APP, how many times a Megan to say this name that that I'm usually really cautious of Santa tripping over and every time I said, and the the APPS are available, not just on I. and Android, but you can even get a windows implementation of Alexa that you can use. It's amazing all the different ways that you can access this assistant. Let's just put it this way. Amazon will let you put Alexa into anything they can. They can possibly make it work with a microphone and A. Yes, yes, including remote controls I have a remote control that has. Has a built in so similarly? The Google assistant is built into Google home. Now branded Google nest products so like the. Home speakers and displays. You have android devices that have the assistant built in android phones obviously have the assistant built in, and there are APPs, not just for android, but also for Ios I'm not aware of anything that you can run on your desktop. That allows you to access Google's assistant though. And, then finally. The whole kid side. Siri is built into I O S and I patio s TV os watch os devices home pied. Any actual displays you mentioned TV os, but it's purely Siri voice. That's the only integration with. Home Kit Is using the remote to call up. Hunkin commands through Siri. There isn't any way of actually interacting. With home kit on a say an apple device. That has a screen. And there's like a there's a special designation for the home pod and any apple TV four or later, and you can also use an ipad as this as a home hub. So this is a capability they added on. I. Don't know many IOS grabs a ago. That allowed you to have these fixed devices. To us as remote access points in the house, and also be able to run automations, correct, yeah, I probably going to get an email, messager or a tweet from somebody that in fact, the home pod does have a screen I would argue that's ornamental more than anything else. So you know I really come to like the Google home hub, or the now the Nesta that I have I think it's incredibly useful to be able to interact with your assistant, not just with audible cues, but also with visual feedback. Yeah, I think it would be cool. If they had like a a mode. You can put an IPAD in. That would just make it. You know basically one of those devices you know like a like an echo show or a google home hub, and you can just sit in your kitchen, or wherever you wanted it and have some of those functions they could create a custom apple. Stand for it would cost a ridiculous amount of money. I mean. We have a plan for them. This will work. Let's talk about the. That these different ecosystems support so in the Alexa ecosystem. Basically you can control any technology that can be bridged over ip through the cloud. natively, it also supports `Zibi now you mentioned local is on the Google side presumably. There must be some API is available to. Be producing product partners. To be able to enable this local integration that they have on the Alexa Platform to. We looked into this a year or so ago and They have a SPEC available and things like that and you have to support the full be. Approved Standards and some of that, but I think worth mentioning is like not all echo devices have that zig be radio in them I believe all the modern ones do. At one point. They just released an echo that had you know was like the smart home version that had been it and I think now they've transitioned to where all of them have that. Have that capability? Yeah, I. Don't think any of the devices that have have that capability and I'm pretty sure that the the flex. Doesn't have it and I. Know that the five inch display doesn't have it. So it is kind of confusing that some devices support it and some devices don't but along those lines. Then let's talk about Google. Google assistant can control pretty much the same any technology that can be bridged over Ip with cloud, connectivity or It can control some Bluetooth devices natively again. Not all of Google assistant or Google home devices. Now, called nest home devices I still trip over that. Not all of them. Actually have this Bluetooth native capability. What? This I think is this Bluetooth thing I think is fascinating because the argument I've always Heard About Bluetooth is that you can't just have? One vendors Bluetooth connect to some other vendors, Bluetooth, smart home stuff and have it work. It doesn't work that way. It's all secure and everything and. They. Pulled it off. They're doing it now with the see by GE bulbs. And I know other manufacturers that are working to add that capability. Yeah, I think it works pretty well and just kind of an interesting side note I wanted to talk about when we started looking into their local API I learned a lot about how the Google assistant home devices actually work, and they're actually the basically the same. Family as chrome cast devices, so a lot of how they operate natively is very similar to a chrome cast, and they run chrome os or some flavor of it so. It was interesting to me, you know. The deep technical is like you know you're actually writing Java script and that kind of stuff to control devices. They're so very web centric likes stuff, which might developers that were very familiar with Java script liked in. It was very comfortable for them, but it was kind of strange to me. That something enervating, you know native device was with easing web languages. But I, I'm really impressed what they've done there and I hope to see that capability expanding. Now on the good side. Here's where it's all different. They can theoretically control any technology that bridged. They apple impose limitations on how they define that. Yeah I mean these are natively. They can talk via Bluetooth and Wi fi and Ethernet, and then if you have a hub controlled device via dig yeezy wave, something proprietary, you have to have some sort of hub in the middle that then talks to Ip on the the home protocol. So bridge devices hubs themselves that combine multiple vendors products potentially although. I don't know that we've ever seen I have to think about this I. Don't know that we've ever seen. An actual implementation of A third party product. Integration, yet I think the first. For that is going to be that abode security system where they're saying. Still. That at some point in time, they expect to be able to certify certain. Z., wave devices that connect to that here's how here it's this caveat and I. Maybe I've said this on the show before, but it's important. Reminder any hub that certified with home kit. All of the end devices. That are connected to that hub must be certified under that implementation, so you can't just create a hub that connect to anything Willy Nilly because of the security model of Home Kit They WanNa test all those individual devices so. Generally that requires a manufacturer to certify their devices, and all their end points one hub. We worked on for shade manufacturer. We had to actually send apple. A large selection of shades. A comical amount of shades so that they can test all the different you know. What worked with that hub. So that's why you're never going to have somebody who just has a Wifi Zubi hub that will work with any be off the shelf device. And that makes sense for the way. They're approaching this now. We've talked about this before, but. Really. None of these things are really hubs or require. Hub Apple now does like you mentioned before. Require that you have an apple, TV or and ipad dedicated in the house to be available for external control. To run automations, but all of this stuff is either sending out local signals from the different devices around your home. Or your phone. or Sending signals to the cloud to then control those things. Right and I guess important note to do that. The apple home hub thing if you didn't have a home pot or an apple TV and you just wanted to be able to use home kit. When you're home, you couldn't run automations, but that would work fine. That's how home kit worked for years until that peace was introduced. You know you could run it on the local network when you're on the local network, and if you weren't on the local network, you couldn't. You couldn't necessarily access it right. Right and I again I. think that's the. That's the thing that so. Differentiates Apple's solution. Is that local control of everything? Let's talk a little bit about the different interfaces that we would use to. Work with these different ecosystems and by that I mean. How do you as a customer interact with them? There's obviously voice on all of them. We talked about how they all have voice assistance. Some of them have screen interfaces integrated with their voice assistance. All of them have a form of APP control. Amazon and Google's approach has really been. Let's put cheap speakers. Around someone's home. While apple's approach has largely been a well series always on you. Whether you're wearing a watch or Toting your phone around, or you have air pods in series always around, or you could have one or two of our expensive speakers in your home to talk to her to I. Don't think they use that exact pitch, but that's the gist of it. Yeah, we forgot about a hero s or whatever that runs on air pot, so there's another way to talk to Siri. There you go, so you know if we look at the different APPS that we mentioned they each have their own. There's the Alexa APP. There's the Google map and the home APP. We'll talk a little bit more about them and the capabilities that they offer in our second segment. On. Apple it's interesting to note that third parties can develop APPS. You're not just limited to apple's own APP. In fact, when home kit first came out, they didn't even have an APP. which still. Baffles me. Yeah, I think they were working on it. It just wasn't ready, but yes, so a lot of us put a lot of time into our APPs early on the sport everything, and only to be crushed by their eventual. Implementation there, but. I digress and the other. I think unique thing about apple that you can tell me if you think I'm wrong, but I think they're unique in that. You can also set up automation such that you know you can do if this. If you know if I open this door, then you know, do this thing or or kinds of actions, I would say that's also another interface. I think you're wrong. But we'll talk more about the automation capabilities that each ecosystem. Offers in the next segment because I think the way they approach it. They each do a little bit separately. And I think the way they approach it. Gives apple a serious leg up there? Now before we go into the specifics of controlling your home, let's take a look at privacy. Certainly, all of these companies have faced some recent privacy, buzz and concern. Amazon you know there are many concerns about your customer data for example, all of the news articles that came out about ring, and were they doing with a video, and were they surveilling things that they shouldn't be surveilling. That can be a concern for many customers and. Amazon is really pushing their trust factor with consumers because you are. If you subscribe to something like Amazon key which I would argue is built upon their smart home controlled platform. You are literally giving them digital keys to your home. Not Me Crazy to me. Yeah Yeah not me either I'm not doing that not happening now on the Google side. Look Google already knows everything about you. Now with stuff in your home, it's going to know more. And you know, I, look at this as It knows when your home or away or sleeping. It knows where you go. It knows if you've been good or bad I. Just I have just learned to. Deal with the fact that Google knows everything about me. I I know you can do that. Data dump from them to I. Don't even you know I'm putting my head in the sand on that one? I don't even WanNa. Know going through Google's location. History is a fascinating and somewhat scary exercise, but it's also incredibly useful. If you want to use that data and the results that Taylor's for you when you ask it, something are specifically built around the fact that Oh. You know what he goes to Home Depot three times a week. So yeah. It's useful in. I'm willing to make that trade off. I think with any of these. It's a off. It's like. Are you willing? Do you want? Certain features, and are you willing to trade some of your privacy for those things and I think that's something. We all need to be aware of and try to keep that in check to the extent of which you know we can before things get. Too Out of, whack. Now approaching this from the complete other side of the security and privacy thing apple has from the beginning. Been All about privacy and their platform was built on. I would say severe security constraints, even initially to the point where they had the hardware chip requirement that many manufacturers are still using because. Frankly, it's just easier for everybody involved I think. What's interesting here? Is that while everything that they have done? Has Been Built upon this privacy and security model. All your data's local. It's tied up in your. Secure their secure enclave and you have the the. Cloud keychain that contains the information about your home. They don't actually have access to that. That to me is amazing. And then they kinda threw a curveball when they introduced home kit secure video where they're like. Oh Yeah we're. We're going to offer this platform where camera manufacturers can store their video that they capture securely. Encrypted in our cloud. Yeah, I thought this was an interesting approach and you know. Basically. I've always taken the stance that I think apple is the most serious. In this space about privacy and security and Different people different, cultures. All have different views on on. Privacy And you know they really wanted to give an option for those who are most concerned about their privacy. I had a really interesting conversation with somebody from El, Gato Eve, It's called now because they've been home kit only. And I was like really the you know why. Why home kit only like you're not, you're missing out on these other segments of the market, and they're a German company, and they said in Germany. Everybody's so concerned about privacy that. You know really home kit had such a big adoption. It roots really all that mattered, and so they weren't worried about sending stuff over the cloud and I think that's the interesting thing to point out here, too. So as a manufacturer devices that support home kit you know you. The user can choose to just connect that device to home kit and totally skip ever connecting it to our cloud. Any of that back end stuff so certainly people can choose that and nothing is being sent back to any other Kinda back ends, and I think the steps. Apple took last year with their router integration, even gave users even further control to be able to shut off what devices can talk to as well and that you know so far I think has been handled responsibly. I was initially a little bit concerned about how that would happen. Especially because we push things like over the air updates via the cloud, but certainly somebody who's. You know absolutely wants privacy and security lockdown. They have those options via that ecosystem. Yeah and I think that's A. Natural outcropping. Of the approach that they've been taking to kind of simplify that process by. Integrating could have apples, mindset and approach toward this into different vendors routers. I think that was a smart move their part. Now one thing that I do kind of not forget about is that. Every single one of these vendors including apple. took. A fair amount of heat. About six months ago, I think it was when. It was discovered by. I. Don't know Captain Obvious that employees and contractors. Of these companies actually listened to a portion of the assistant requests the recordings. Of People asking their assistance for information or to do something, and they do this for Qa and research and development reasons as people who work in the software and hardware fields. This came as no surprise to us, but somehow was just ripe fodder for the tech press for weeks and weeks and weeks and weeks yeah I know Apple's response to this was to make more of an opt in for these kinds of recording sent. And I think you know some people have. You know a problem with this. You know being somebody in the industry. I'm like Okay I. Want I want them to get my my recording, so they could make this better, but it comes down to. How much do you trust them with those recordings, and and how that's handled so and I also think it plays off without explicitly, even saying that. Many. Customers still don't trust that these things aren't. Listening and recording everything. Yeah! So it. I think that the press was playing that fear, and that's one of the things that can stoked that frenzy when we came up with it. All right, so that's kind of US laying the foundation laying the platform. These are the different platforms of there are others obviously on the high end there are others in. Asia and other countries, but these are the most prominent certainly in us and most of Europe. We'll come back and talk about. The different smart home capabilities that they offer, but let's take a quick break I for sponsors. If we have them, and then we'll return with more discussion. Okay, so we're going to talk about some of the capabilities of these different platforms, so on the device kind of accessory side Amazon still has the lead here in terms of having the most devices that they support they. Have you know native API for lighting shades back? ABC control appliances more. And I think. I was sort of a witnessed because of the customers we work with of. There there was a problem that you know when they had to bless all the different categories. It's sort of limited the pace of adoption every time. And we'll talk about this with some of the other ones every time somebody wanted to add a new type of device they had to you know. Create create a set of requirements for it, and you know what it's supposed to do, and so since then I don't remember the exact term for this, but they've added away. That sort of a blend between a smart home, skill and accustomed skill. And our partner Moen was actually one of the first to show this off with what they can do. with their shower device, which is still one of my favorite smart home devices that have and Richard thanks. It's weird. It's Weird I. Don't think it's weird. That's that's one of the reasons why I can talk to Amazon assistant and say turn on preset to. Turn the shower at a preset to. That's not a native function that you could do, but because of this kind of new mode you can add more capabilities. Google is kind of a close second for the number of devices they support. They've got native support lighting shades. H facts some heavy stuff. And I think there's a unique one in that. They. Don't really need to. Add different device support either what they have is building blocks. Think of this kind of like legos and you know there's one lego piece for turning something on and off. There's a Lego piece for brightness. There's a lego piece for the temperature. And so if you wanted a you know a lamp that had running water. That could do brightness temperature. You could make that with their building blocks. Nobody would buy that, but you could make it because you can put all these pieces together, so you really only have to work with them. If you need a new lego block, but in from what I've seen of what's available. It's all their everything. We would have ever needed so. For the most part they offer a lot of the pieces there and you can. You can kind of put those together. Home Kit still kind of lags on device support I think a lot of this has to do with the fact that it's a firmware. And hardware focused effort as well as kind of the certification requirements, and you know for some people that isn't necessarily worth it and as you mention. You know it used to be. That you had to have a hardware authentication chip on the device. There is a software option for that, but that software option is not for small companies. It's not a small implementation in and of itself and so. The economics usually there unless you're somebody of a we most size brand, which is who the first one is was to do that, so the chip is cheap enough that for the most part. That's still what. I would guess ninety plus percent of devices are choosing. The thing that I found interesting and we mentioned this before with kit is that they've already kind of pre defined here are all the device types that we support you can extend. Perhaps what they do or what they report, but these are the things we support what happens. If you want to build that lamp that. Pours water like. How do you do that with apple? You have to work with them directly to add that as a new device type. So that's something that takes time. It takes a REVEIW IOS. You know it's it's not something that happens. quickly or easily, and because all of their stuff is so tied to their platforms. It's not like Amazon or Google where you could just finish the SPEC for it and then throw it up in the cloud, and it's done. You GotTa wait for a software release or update or something like that for that new device SPEC to fall into so yeah, so I think that's created some of why there aren't as many devices that support home kit, but they always add new ones and We have a ww D C coming up. You know maybe we'll see. Some new categories added then. I don't know if we're going to take bets on that one. I think I'm betting against that this year, I, don't know. Yeah we'll see I would just taken you know I would just hope for a home kit session. Anything on Home Kit something on home kit please. We'll have to make a side bet. We can talk about it on twitter. So the next one is kind of on boarding experience so for Amazon, Echo Pre aside your Amazon account assuming you bought them online. Yeah, if you bought it from from Amazon. which can make for a nice experience? It really does I mean just plugging it in and it. Being recognized automatically is very very nice. Adding skills can be a little bit weird and you know I think I've always found this to be kinda strange to like the the whole smart home experience. We have to add the skill, and then it can find the device. It's kind of clunky. Yeah and surprise. The U. X. that Amazon built. In the ALEXA APP to find skills is just. A SURPRISE We could do a whole APP of view, complaining about Amazon, you act. And then you know it can automatically find some in house or or partner products, and some of the paired ecosystems and. You put in the notes. Here was often left wondering now. What like? It's not very graceful a process? That's exactly right so okay. Added this device or it just founded and again it's really amazing when I add something to my ring app for example and then boom I get an alert on my phone. That Alexis added it to my devices that she knows about. That's awesome. I love that. But you're like okay. So what do I do now? There is no real guidance in terms of next steps or how you might want to use the device to configure the device, so it's it's challenging, but I I would say that this is probably. Better than. Say. I duNno Google's. No I have to think about that. They're equally difficult, so you know. Google has some auto discovery some they don't find It's confusing and it's always changing, and that's the thing that drives me crazy. Right the Google home APP. And how the menus and settings and different tabs and everything how that set up, it's constantly changing. That's just google. Agile Agile Mindset. Yeah! And their devices offer to add services like Hulu or Google music and things like that and you'd like Hulu. Why would I add to my Google Assistant? What I don't even understand what that's for. It may be a better interface than Hulu. which is a garbage APP for navigating things. That's true. It is changing though, so that's good news. I have to imagine nets for their display devices. Maybe for chrome cast, but it's just. It's Hartford meter to wrap my head around why a specific video service in my google I don't know I don't understand Yup and then adding smart homes stuff, you know not all the smart home are listed. They definitely have some of the bigger brands up at the front and my understanding in talking to them. As you know, that's based on numbers that you know once you get to a certain tier, then you get a logo early in the list, but it makes for kind of a crummy experience for somebody. WHO's you know further down the line we? We did something right when we picked a C. Name. Get up further in the alphabet. Yeah, you're higher in the second list of vendors to go through, but then there are companies. Depending on how they built their software, and how long ago they created it and I'll use my smart blinds. As an example, you can use the Google Assistant to control my smart blinds if you have the my smart blinds bridge. But My smart blinds or tilt were smarter home, or whatever the company is calling itself. These does not show up. In the Google. SMART Home Products List. It's just not even there. So to add it. is a completely different process than normally going through your Google home APP. Yup and lastly you had Bluetooth here. I've never actually used bluetooth with Google device, but You seem to like it. It's awesome. It's absolutely awesome. It is quick and easy, and this is why I'm so excited about seeing what else they might be able to do. With Bluetooth because Bluetooth is kind of the underdog in the home control stuff. There's a lot of people that do not like the idea of Bluetooth for Smart Home I. Think you're. Somewhat in that camp and so. The fact that they made it so easy, and they can do it with third party devices. I think that is a big step forward for Apple. The experiences inconsistent. I would say it's evolved over time you know. Sometimes, it's pretty easy. Most devices now come with a Qr Code. Sometimes, it's a pain in the butt you. You mentioned the soft code, so these are likely the software devices that are using the software authentication. They have to generate a code. In APP and that APP experience can be a little bit weird. Oh, it's! It's I know if you've ever provisioned any of these devices in your home kit ecosystem but I've done the abode. Implementation and I've done the we mow implementation. You mentioned earlier. We most I out of the gate. It is. Awful, the process is just absolutely awful to go through to get that code and tie these things together. I think that on the abode side. They made it a little bit easier, but it's still really awkward, and here's the thing that I worry about with provisioning devices talked about this before. It's one reason that we love this APP so much. Don't lose that code. You do not want to lose the code your devices, some devices that are very small like for borrow devices. They don't have code on them. Most of them have the code on them. But they don't have one. If you lose the code and there's not an NFC chip in there to pair it, it can be. You could be out of luck. You have to have the code, so we like to recommend an APP called home pass and we'll have link. The show notes to that. We know the guy who developed it. It's a really nice way of basically keeping vault of all your home codes. I was going to mention on the soft thing. you know the soft codes? The, the most recent home kit device I've added I. Think was Ero- when they added support for Euro and I. Think Maybe they fix that soft code process because I don't remember having to like, write it down and enter it in somewhere else, so or at least eero handled that in a better way. Good I'm glad to hear. I appreciate the the mention of NFC which you wrote here and FC pairing magical. This was something when we built the in wall outlet. We. Really wanted to get right and we felt like that NFC experience. Could be a really good one, and it's something that will always be there. You don't really have to worry about. Losing that code and with our device, being in a wall, you can't exactly easily get to the back of the device and we felt like NFC was less obtrusive than. Something you know, I think I devices had this little flag that they actually patented which was clever, but you know it's it takes up space yeah. And complicated design and I could break off or whatever so you know I think with. The price of NFC now. Maybe you'll see more of it but there really are very few devices that that use it. So next. In terms of things, is device organization so richards favorite APP THE ALEXA APP. Captures, devices and scenes added for products creating groups as really the only way to bundle these I'm a big fan of groups they it does a good job and you can assign aliases and things like that device can be part of more than one group, but there's like no native concept of favorites or anything like that, so you could create a favorites group if you wanted to do that. I think my my biggest. Angst. Here is when you bring this stuff in and you. WanNa group things together. There's no concept of location. In your home. A group can be anything. Maybe that's good because it can be very flexible or it can be a room. But you can't alias. You can create a group in fact. Let me say that differently. You have to create a group if you want to alias and existing scene or device and what I mean by that is if something. If you have a device and you want to be able to refer to it, not only by its name. But by that thing that your spouse partner or child insists on calling it, and it's not the way it's been named, and it's not even logical, but you're tired or pissing them off, so you WanNa make sure it's named the right thing, and it knows how to respond to it. The only way to do that is to create a group with that one thing in it. There's gotta be an easier way. I think one thing that I'm really a fan of groups for. Was You know you can put an echo device in a group, and that allows you to give very simple commands like hey, lady, turn on the lights right, and it will only respond to the lights in the group with that Echo Yep. Yep and we'll talk about that a little Miller too, because I think that's an incredibly handy capability that I still haven't been able to get to work in my home, so Google captures devices and. And scenes for the added product they let you assign a device to one room. They also have no favorites and I think their lack of favorites. Real problem at you can only put something in one room, so that means you can't have this idea of grouped stuff across rooms that make up something like your favorite devices that want to get to quickly, and it's one of the in my opinions, many limitations of the way they manage devices in the ecosystem so home kit lis- out your accessories. Not Scenes, lets you assign devices to one room, and you can have favorites and you could add multiple home kit scenes, and this is where the power of home kit I think becomes so obvious unlike all these other systems that pool in the scenes that were defined already in the ecosystem that your devices. Already exist so for example if you're bringing your, what's caught your your Lutron? Devices into? Your Alexa or Google home environment then. It also brings the scenes with it, and that's really powerful. It's it's nice that you can call the scenes directly, but in home kit you have complete control overseas. You create the scenes in home kit. And that means that you can put. You want in any scene from any vendor together, and that's incredibly powerful. Yeah, we're GonNa talk more later about. You know what we do personally, but I think one thing just to call here is most of this type of automation I leave to home kit and and do it in that in that ecosystem. So in terms of control. The Alexa APP has always been pretty pretty terrible terrible from the beginning from the beginning I you know I. Have we talked about all the device knows and I have like two hundred nodes in there or something it's unusable with. That much stuff. And it. They have to figure out how to make this work better for. Systems at scale. Maybe, it works better for people with twelve things I don't know. I wouldn't know either, but I would think it's probably you know the people that are building. It are looking at that experience with four or five devices. They're not looking at a at Richard scale right, which is frustrating anyway, I. Might pitched L. Amazon again. Please just. Start over. Just, please start over with this APP. Please call Richard. Come he's available. Alexa also enables. Real control at by grouping devices an echo devices together. We mentioned that earlier you know. Google nest device in a room will control that rooms accessories, same sort of thing. It works exactly the same way except Google's actually works for me. Yeah I don't know why that. I don't know I'm GONNA. Have to come to DC and help you troubleshoot. Some day. The Google home APP It's getting better. It's it's kind of a disjointed experience with Google assistant, but they're working on it. It's constantly changing with Alexa and Google non-native device. Support is awkward. Trigger phrases tell this vendor skill name to do other thing so in that case both. Alexa and Google assistant are getting a lot more native integrations, and that's really necessary like. We still unfortunately are at the point. I believe in with Delta which was the first faucet to come out to support for assistance where you have to tell Dot Delta to well you tell your assistant to Tell Delta to pour a quart of water, and by the time you do all that and the same thing with my smart blinds and anything else that I might have around the House that uses a third party skill that is natively supported yet. The more that these ecosystems can add then. The less awkward, that's going to get because you can just tell it to pour water or to open the blinds, or what have you and that's what's so different? From those ecosystems and home kit, because home kit already knows what types of devices it supports. Yeah, and I think that comes from having that you know we talked about how it can be a pain because they have to lay everything out for you when you add a new device, but this is the end result of it, which is that there's no complications. There's no custom skills. It's just kind of all laid out, and then it just works that way. Yeah, and following that same mindset than Serey knows about like knows as proper nouns, the rooms in your home, the accessories and what you've named them. And? The scenes that you're using. Recognizes them and auto corrects to them. If it hears, you say something because they are in its dictionary, which is brilliant. I think that always seems to work. PRETTY WELL IS A lot smoother than the voice fights. I constantly get in with Alexa. Yeah so and the home APP. It's still one of the best out there IOS thirteen's been a little bit of interesting bumpy ride, but I would refer back to our state of Home Kit. Episode Number One seventy nine for further discussion of that I tend to believe that the home APP is probably. One of the best simple home control APPS available today. Full Stop. Regardless of ecosystem. In Home Kit. I. I wish it did more I understand why it doesn't. But I feel like it is also my first Goto I. I go to it to try and do something either. Starting to create a scene or whatever else? And then if I have to, then I'll go to third party APP. Yeah, I think you know. Sort of the double edged sword is it's the lowest common denominator so they don't support. Of custom stuff. They're kind of just supporting the standard characteristics standard capabilities. Great example on our stuff is you can't use the characteristic in home kit of win a devices, consuming power or how much. You know how many amps or watts it's drawing where you can do that in our APP through home kit. They don't support that natively, but if they were, it wouldn't be as good of an APP if they went down. All those rabbit holes, so it's kind of a balancing act and and I think I agree with you, they they've achieved a good balance. Yeah, so now in the automation category. Amazon and Google rely heavily on routines. Amazon I would say has the best flexibility in triggers so you can do time. Solar sensors voice commands buttons Geo Location. All kinds of different conditional constraints by specific time of the day. You. Know what they don't actually have solar constraints, which is frustrating, so you could have a routine that turns on a light if there's motion somewhere outside. And you to put specific time on it. You can't say between sunset and sunrise because they don't have that as an option for constraining a routine, which just seems ridiculous to me. Yeah, I mean. It adds way more complexity, though 'cause then you have to know where they are, and you know timezones and all that, but it is nice to be able to set those solar based ones, because then you don't have to change them throughout the year. I would argue they know that already because they offer solar events like sunrise and sunset. Even with offsets to trigger. A different routine. You just can't constrain a routine with those attributes, so it's it's clearly. Just like a development backlog priority issue right now. Technical issue so. Now offers home and away modes. So. That's not something I. Don't think I've ever used that. Yeah I. I think it can be very powerful if it set up right and the idea being that when you're away, certain things may or may not happen or when you go away or when you come home, certain things might trigger automatically, but to be able to constrain by. Whether someone home or not I think that is very helpful and it's. Something, that home kit added I think just like a year or two. into its initial implementation Google still only allows triggers by voice or time no solar here, and the rest of it is long overdue, so a lot of it got removed by nest. There's no conditions no concept of modes again kind of nest related stuff. Yeah, and this is. kind of my frustration with Google home where the nest ecosystem offered all of this stuff like the idea of home and away and being able to build on that or Having some nice conditions on things were triggers from devices. None of that is available in Google home yet. We're still expecting it. They still say that they're delivering it, but really were only at the point where you can use exact time. Or you can use voice phrases to trigger a routine. In Google home and that's ludicrous is just absolutely ludicrous, not even their own devices. And the activities that those devices might. Have can trigger a routine in the Google ecosystem now I wanNA talk a little bit about that voice triggering because this is one area where they shine. So, you can create multiple aliases for any voice command that you create in Google home, so let's say for example I wanna be able to open. My blinds and I don't WanNa. have to go through all of the different things or maybe I want to wake up, or whatever and I have a bunch of different things that are going to do. Maybe I sat one way. Maybe my partner says it a different way. Maybe a guest might say it yet a different way. I actually have four. No five variations of how I might ask to open the blinds and five areas of how he might ask you know open the bedroom lines open the blinds in the bedroom. Open the blinds. It just these different ways that you can do it, and it's going to trigger an all of those I love this Amazon. Where are you on this? This is crazy that you can't do this in with Alexa yet. I would say you know. I, it's great that you can do this, but I also would want. You know you shouldn't have to also like we shouldn't have to do that work. It should be able to interpret those things for you. I would agree but I think when you're creating your own command. It gets a little bit. Murky it's yeah, it's a harder issue then if they have a command that has a bunch of different variations and the Google just figures it out. You know right. I'm trying to remember. Which one of this is, but it might be Amazon. Where we supply that list of all those variations, it's Amazon. Yeah, there's a there's a very specific syntax that you used to define all the different ways that you could ask a particular question and. Just I've gone through that process with the vendor before. That is an. That is an arduous process to really think through all that properly, and inevitably you're gonNA forget something. In terms of maybe a colloquialism of how people in a certain locale may say something. Something else! Yeah so it's tricky now. On that voice is worth, calling out is that Google lets you create a voice command to trigger any Google Assistant Command. So if you have something like. A Delta Faucet think Delta works with Google Assistant, but let's just say that it did. If you have a Delta Faucet and you had a command to say. My Google thing tell Delta to pour a quart of water. You could. Create a command. That's just poor a court. And It would you just address it? And you say poor court, and it sends the long command and ends up triggering that I think that is incredibly powerful. Yeah, that's really nice to be able to to do that. I would again say it'd be nice if you didn't have to. Figure that out for me? Baby Steps Pumpkin here offers kind of the most capabilities and flexibility including device status, and it's all really built around scenes. Yeah, and what's interesting about that is you can create. A. An automation in home kit that only controls one device. Behind the scenes soda speak. It's actually creating a fake seeing that it's putting that device into, and then it's controlling the scene. Everything in Hunkin is in scenes, and that's why in some. Home Kit compatible APPS. Edit or create an automation for just one device. It only sees the scenes. Your APP is a good example of that. Your APP implements it just the same way that apple's own. APP implements it. You only can include scenes as the things that you're going to automate as a result of the trigger. So this I think all the different things you can do here. Above and beyond anything else home, it has the greatest automation capabilities including knowing whether everybody's home someone's home nobody's home. It's amazing all the different things that you can do in their ecosystem but. Like, we said before can't do it on home, and frankly I've never found one app just one single APP. That I could use for everything that I WANNA do I have to use multiple different ones. Yep I have a whole folder of them. And we mentioned earlier like because of the requirements, insecurity and things like that. It doesn't scale well beyond you know. Those apple certified devices. There are some options unofficially whatever with home, bridge and hoops. Which Apple. Tolerates tolerate tolerates is a good word. On one or the other podcast I listen to. I really got a kick out of it. They said like you know. Don't tell me I can do it through homeboy. You might as well just tell me it doesn't work. Just you know if I can't do it. Simply just tell me it doesn't work. Don't tell me well, if I download a raspberry. Raspberry Pi and put this in like. Just tell me it doesn't. It's completely fair. Perspective I had taken the same stance for years. You know on the other side of that argument. We have colleagues who are like. There's absolutely nothing wrong with home. Bridge home bridges works perfectly. There's nothing that anybody can do that would make it stop working. I. Don't believe that statement. I think that is a a false sense of security, but it's powerful, and I will say after setting up my own hoops center. I am really really happy with how ring devices and ness devices integrate seamlessly in my home kit ecosystem. I still have to play around with some more with that so. To do there. Being no, no ecosystem seems to allow you to trigger automations from an external system. If tw yeah I hate that like I would love to be able to use spark things for example. To trigger. An Alexa routine. That would be very helpful. Now. Honk it as the best way of working around this ever. Which is the home kit? Is Device status aware and you can build something based on the status of a particular device so whether it's an actual device like a switch that you just through or whether it's something that you're using to proxy the state of something. You. You have the ability to to get into home kit and then trigger other stuff to happen in home kit. That's crazy powerful. Yeah I've seen some interesting weird hacks with this to where somebody would take like a Lutron lamp dimmer and you? They would say like if the lamp dimmer is set to. Plugged into any lamp. It's really just being a proxy like that, and if the if dim level for this lamp dimmer, it's to then do this. If dim level of this lamp dimmer is then do this and we will link to my article about how to set that up. Our show notes. Dago. So reliability wise Richard. What would you say is the most reliable him down? Hands Down like it's not even a competition I would say that. My echoes are fifty percent reliable in understanding what I'm saying, and then maybe another fifty percent reliable in doing what I wanted them to do as a result of what I said. Yeah! We can talk about that more later. You, I would say yeah. Absolutely home kid is the most reliable and the most stable. It's always my backup for when other things are not working I will say that the Google home experiences very good and very reliable, and sometimes when I cannot get. Alexa turn something on for me. I can get the Google Assistant to do it, so you know I have no explanation for why that is. Yeah. How about application preferences would would you like to use? Well I mean I think I've spoken before about how I have. ECHO DOTS all over the place. So you know I use. The? Alexa APP for some routines, but I also have inst- theon, and so I use instagram scheduled scenes, which are far more efficient than a scene in any one of these other ecosystems and and so. I I'm still using them and trying to figure out how to integrate with him well I. Still Use smart things to automate some stuff again. Probably because of instant have a third party plug into. Let me support instagram there. And I used home kit automations. How crazy is that I? Have Four different engines? Actually five because I recently added a you know me routine. I have five different engines driving stuff in my house based on what they can and can't do because one system can't do it all. That alone is fodder for another episode sometime. So my first request is always to. 'cause I prefer to just shout into the air rather than like. Risk Lifting Oh I. Know The hassle of lifting my wrist and talking to my F- my watch, but. I will say that as as we say. Home Kit is the most. Consistently reliable my watch responding when I want it to is probably least reliable. Yeah if that worked. Feel like one of the old Wacho S.'s worked better than. Than this one currently and I, I don't know. It's not as good as it was. I mentioned that I haven't asked hub on my nightstand I really like that. I love that device it is. It is tempting enough and so good enough that I'd be willing to convert all of my dots to echo or to nest minis if In fact everything that I used was supported, and they had a better routines. Ecosystem right now is just not there yet, so. You know I know I'm using these two big companies stuff i. don't care about them. Having my information, I know they have my information, but at the same time I've mentioned this before i. don't have cameras in my living spaces. I have cams in the basement and garage and lots outside, but nothing in the house. That's one line. I won't cross. And then as a control, APP shouldn't be a surprise. Apples home I love the home APP, and that's my go-to anytime. I need to control something other than my instinct devices. You Adam same echoes all over the house anything. We talked about this in the past like it. You know I just kept getting them for free. Or, at conferences. or I just kept getting them for free or cheap and it just. kind of happened that way, but man do I get frustrated when they don't work and my biggest nightmare command, and maybe I've talked about this on the show before is I have a routine called good night. Chewy to is the name my dog. And so This like works I. Don't know fifty percent of the time, my my wife, the other night, said I think we might need to abandon the good night, chewy phrase and come up with something else because sometimes I get good night Julie as a response right I think having good night in there, and maybe chewy is hard for it to understand, but it's like you know you should have some ai, that says I'm hearing a command at whatever ten thirty eleven at night and it's always the same damn command. Just expect this. Expect that you're hearing. Good night chewy and just do it right. Don't tell me goodnight Julie. Don't tell me goodnight. You know whatever. Sometimes it just it'll start playing a song. Sometimes, it's played a song throughout the House Waking Up. Our children aren't even know what you heard. I think I I think that's the result of their engine, not being context aware it doesn't know the names of the people in your home or your pets or anything else it's it's unaware of the proper nouns it needs to know. Yeah. Well, that's the most frustrating won. The second request is always to home kit. Usually, that's what I use and I mentioned. It's because of the bickering of speakers that Amazon I. if there was a fifty dollar home pod, I would probably. Do An experiment in going all in in that I think the one thing that would hold me back is really like the intercom capabilities most of the time in in Amazon, ECHO devices and my kids use that a lot especially when their momma sleeping and trying to take a nap, and they like to make announcements and wake her up and. That goes over real well, but the one thing I we talked about earlier that you know, apple's lacking is like that that display device I really like our echos show in the kitchen. I like the large screen format. I like the little news and entertainment stuff that POPs on their. They're often fun and entertaining interesting. It gives me something to do while I'm cooking. It's it's a nice nice device. Yeah, I can see that I think. I think apple would really benefit from something that had a screen on it, but it would just be exorbitantly expensive. I mean ipads are less three hundred dollars now, so you can get a pretty cheap ipad so well. There's the irony rate. You can buy an IPAD cheaper than you can buy a home pod, yeah! So. And then lastly. Like, we mentioned I have a Google home in the family room, mostly protesting and those hard to hard to ask questions that the other assistance would fumble all over. all right well. That was quite a lot hopefully. If you're listening and you're still with us, you got a bit out of that. You have a better understanding of what the different ecosystems could do. I do have a quick question for you before we go. If someone were to ask you because I'm sure people. Do they ask me all the time? If you were to get one of these things in your home. Which one would you recommend beginning? Probably an Amazon Echo Yeah. You Recommend Amazon to people. Yeah typically. I think for me, the answer would. Depend on whether they're in Android, household, or not I think if you're an android household, Google Hall makes more sense. Yeah, particularly, if you don't have, don't have one now because your. Your threshold for what you're expecting out of it, in terms of all the different things that could support is going to be lower than someone who's been using for example and ECO for the last five years. which if you don't have one I don't know what you're waiting for because they. Basically giving them away, I just got an offer the other day. I think because I'm a youtube premium subscriber. That they've just like here. Can We send you a? Nest many for Free Yup. Come with everything. It's great you're not. You're not trying hard enough if you don't have one. All right well. We do have a question this week before we get out of here and this week's question came from a backlog that we have this one is from. Listener and front of the show Keith Lunceford and he asks. Does anyone make a good connected latch set? Their dozens of dead bolts, but few latches. The closest I've found is from slag, but it requires a ten dollar a month next year, subscription and a bridge for remote programming. This is a really good question and the answer is that. Most lock manufacturers are not really making latch since they're focused on deadbolt. And part of the reason for that I have to imagine is because that's a much easier. Diy Replacement Job. Replacing an entire latch set on a door. Would probably require that most people I doubt. This is a case for case, but most people probably would need to hire a contractor to help with that effort. And do you really want the contractor Dylan with the smart lock thing? Probably not so knabe now. That means that you're working with home pro and it just gets expensive. I I do know that makes a number. Of different models. Yes! They do need a bridge I. Don't think you're going to find that. You can really get away from that. With a connected latch set, I have not seen connected latch set yet. That is all Wifi and can work without a bridge. There is another manufacturer that makes. Beautiful. Latch sets, and that's Baldwin and the Baldwin evolved brand is essentially Baldwin's implementation of Kibo. Built into Baldwin locks. It's Baldwin. They're expensive. They're probably more expensive than any other. Lock in this category that would be. Like flirting with smart locks. I think these probably start. At about six hundred dollars. So. They're all solid metal. There tons of different finishes I have a Baldwin. deadbolt and handle pair. So that's the other thing that you could consider. Is that while not all? The smart manufacturers make a handle set. That's a complete set. Sometimes they make latching smart dead bolts. Her matching smart bolts, and then normal handles or latches so you could use them together so that they at least look like they're from the same family. I have one. More recommendation and this is a weird one, but it's a product that I. Love by a company called Igloo home. The equaliser home mortis solution is a really good smart lock. It has a very intentional contemporary design, so that may not work for everybody, but what I love about this thing is that it's a smart lock that's not technically connected to anything but your phone. and. You can use your phone. To assign it smart codes. And Phil Work. It's kind of like magic. They use this algorithm based on. Like time location encryption and some random seed, and your phone knows that if at such and such a time your lock. Created a new code on it that okay, then your phone knows that they just they. They figure it out mathematically cool. And I would say you know. For me, being fully connected. To Wifi is not super, important I've still use a Schley Sense, which is Bluetooth only, but it connects to home kit and really the functions. We use the number pad for unlocking the door which is. By in far what it gets used for the one piece that's nice to have home. Get for is I. Get those entry. The lock unlock notifications from Home Kit. Right so that's the one piece that is nice to have, but otherwise I wouldn't see a big problem with having a non connected. You know lock. Yeah, it really depends what your use cases. If this is for your home where your device in your phone or occasionally GonNa pass by each other than something that isn't necessarily connected to the cloud might be enough for your needs. Igloo home can actually be used for. Stuff like vacation properties and and rental properties. I still can't wrap my head around how that works, but it does. So. That is something to look into again if you're looking for that. Doesn't give you the ability to. Dynamically open the door for someone that's on the phone, says hey, I need to get into the house. But it depends again. It depends on your use so hopefully. These are some options, but this is one area where we just have not seen whole lot of product yet. Right. If you have a smart home question, you can send it our way on twitter, using the Hashtag, ask smart home, show and thanks again to everybody who sent those in? Keep them coming and we'll pick a question every week to include in the show hurry. In a very long one. Maybe we're making up for the weeks when we didn't have episode, but.

Our Daughter Is A Nurse On The Front Lines Of The Coronavirus Pandemic

"This is Stephen Jackson one of the curious city producers. Today we're back with another episode of life interrupted personally dispatches from everyday folks living through in nineteen think of them as little sonic lifelines during this strange strange time in this second installment we meet. Susie in Bob sheer proud parents of an ICU nurse on the front line of the pandemic at an early age we recognize something special in Aley. She has a big heart. She's very determined and she decided she wanted to go ahead and pursue nursing give that ago she started in the Level one trauma center where she would meet the helicopters coming in from accidents. She seemed to be happier with sicker people. Who can say that she? She really likes. Those challenges are just to give you a little insight into maybe. Her personality talked to a really good friend of ours. Who's known Haley her entire life? She said how's Hayley doing and I said well I said most of our patients now are cove patients. She said. I knew she'd be in the thick of it. I knew she'd be was kind of thinking. This must be the way parents feel when their children sign up for the armed forces I mean I know that it's not the same but she wanted to go where she was needed. What I worry about most with her is the psychological impact up it. She said every day in treating these patients. It's like Russia Roulette. The nurses can't even touch their skin without patients being draped and gowned and masked and she has talked about the fact that she has helped several of her patients before they go on the ventilator. Call their families to say goodbye and she said mom I know they're talking to their families for the last time. She's used to twelve hour day but I don't think twelve hour days are like this day after day after day. Once a week we spend the entire day gathering groceries and cooking for her and trying to align up meals for her I smoked beef brisket for her and her fiance the day and made a batch of Chili Forum and bigger put in the seasoning near just things that we can make in quantity and they can eat some now. Put it in the fridge and have a little later so we loaded up more in Naperville and we drive it into the city. The first time we did it she saw and we just said it inside the gate and she would just wave to us out the window but then after that once she got a little more accustomed to what was going on and how to deal with the virus she would come outside. Stand Ten fifteen feet away and we talked for a little bit. I three funded squashes. Are they getting better? One was activated. Oh that's good so he's doing better down okay. Caesar Salad few salad than there. I'm just really proud that she's there on the front lines. Oh chilling thank more proud of her now being a nurse than ever before by so. We're not the hug you guys that was Susie and Bob Pa- sheer for our series. Life interrupted this story was produced by Isabel. Carter and Joe with some help from me Stephen Jackson. Also we want to hear from you. How has your life been interrupted? We're especially interested in hearing from people who had a milestone birthday during the pandemic or have one coming up sometime soon. Have you turned sixteen or sixty? Are You Planning Kierra? If you have a story to tell get in touch find us on facebook and twitter at wbz curious city or US an email at life interrupted at wbz Dot Org?

Set Free from Addiction Through the Gospel

"Hey everybody. This is pastor Chad and today we are going to hear testimony from Alex. Right and I get a lot of requests to hear more and more testimonies. The reason I like him is because they give us a real world example application of the power of the Gospel how the Lord changes lives and what it means to truly Abide in him and serve him and walk in him in the things how powerful his gospel is to set us. Free from the Senate trapped in so welcome to the show. Alex and I'm just GonNa let you run with it. I'll probably interrupt you with some questions as we move forward but I'm excited to To hear your testimony and see how the Lord has transformed you. Thanks Vitamin Me. To the show. Passer Chad I really appreciate the opportunity to share my testimony. Share what Jesus Christ has done in my life and taking me out of severe drug addiction and depression and Just drawn to hand drama and giving me a new life in new hard. So let's get right into it I'll I'll share a little bit about my upbringing and kind of how I lead got whacked down that pass. Hookah So I grew up in a Christian home as kind of like Christian so to say said no you know my parents talked about God and Jesus but they were drinking and smoking and and it was kind of all confusing for me. I didn't really have a sense of who the award was. There was no fear of the Lord in my house. That's for sure So I remember at a young age seeing my father draw gin wasted and just messed up and a really kind of threw me off because I would go to high school and I would I would. I would go to school and other kids with families. Said didn't have to deal with this one or kind of what's wrong with my family. Wise wise my family like this like why. Why why am I going through this kind of set the stage for my upbringing but my fam- my family was involved in assemblies of God church so they went to assemblies of God church and I remember at the age of Seven Going to one of the services and they're like you know. Raise your hand if you WANNA accept Jesus into your heart and and I remember going up there and accepts the Jesus and and going Yay. I'm Christian now and That went on from seven to twelve day. J- Thirteen being baptized as fourteen. All these decisions that I made to accept Christ's into my life So they were just Christian during those times. But that's not what being Christians all about is raising your hand and saying you believe it so much more than that. It's a it's a lifetime of sacrifice it's trials tribulations. It's it's going through the fire and sanctified in the Lord and Girvan Through Holiness to become more like Christ so you know during that time You know it was pretty i. I didn't really know what to think. I know what I was being taught and what I had to do to be a believer But so basically my dad was like I said growing up he was really. He was a drinker and stuff. So I started going to a youth group Round the age of high school and started getting involved with Youth Group at a different church and I remember in that youth group that passes through. There would do these sermons in and these messages even talk about God and Jesus. He really wouldn't touch the Holy Spirit. No relieve strong doctrinal stuff like that and he would do a lot of messages. That were like involving. Tv shows like whatever was on NFL popular. The Simpsons Early Football Games or the show twenty four. I remember these messages mixed in with our culture and making everything kind of fun and entertaining. But I don't really remember learning anything I Remember Actually Gossiping with the with the Pastor at the time about people in the church people around the church he he wasn't really a good example but You know that's kind of what happened with the with the youth group and growing up like that and and at that time I had made this decision and even got baptized thinking. I was believer deceiving myself into thinking. I was a believer but it was just. I was still gambling. I was still swearing. You know I I had no change in my heart. I loved my sent. You know I loved every part of it And what what happened was is like you know. I just remember looking back now is like. There's no emphasis on church history emphasis on the reformers martyrs. You know what what people have done. In faith throughout the years it was just all like world the heave and on top of it he had had mentioned to me. The Guy This Guy Rob Bell who's completely heretical. Believe in how. He's a trainwreck. Showing this video of what I said. Yeah Rob Bell's a trainwreck. Exit when you're fourteen fifteen year old. You're watching his sensual cruel little videos he would do And you're like yeah man. That's Jesus I want. Oh yeah he gets it and even show us these. I mean like this is a youth group like thirty or forty kids that he's supposed to shop he supposed to pastor and he's showing us this is just garbage you know and it was just really you know. I was. I was getting nothing out of it except for a place to have friends. You know a a kind of a mentor. Figure you know girl is seeing girls around stuff like that but there was no. I didn't know anything about the Bible at all. Except for what we read during the lessons and stuff but I I didn't understand any of it And I was so deceived. You know that I thought it was a believer So fast forward to like about seventeen. When I was seventeen years old. I Made A my dad and my dad weren't getting along very well. He was drinking and and he was very angry at night. And we would get in a Lotta yelling matches and lights and stuff like that so I applied for college. I got into East Carolina East Eastern Kentucky University Moody Bible Institute University or Zona and University of Illinois Chicago and instead of going down the path that I think God had God was leading me down to do ministry and it gave me some gifts to You Know Spread the Gospel there. I decided to go to Arizona and I just want to into far away from my parents that environment where I grew up grew up outside of Chicago so I just WanNa get out of that environment and I wanted to get you know far away. Get away from all of it so I went down to university zone on Tom. I started getting into smoking weed and and Selling we Not really focusing on classes. Not Very doing very well. Doing a lot of artie and things like that. And basically the second year of school The roommate I was living with he started doing this. Drug called Oxycontin so he was snorting it and and Smoking ad and he introduced me to it And I saw in love with I. Just it made me feel good. I was depressed at the time. It kept me going and I got a really bad fiction I was snorting almost one hundred. Eighty milligrams oxycontin like every other day. Just physically addicted. Opiates that point and at that time from what I can remember you know. I still thought it was Christian. You know about it was a good person and and I made that decision but I don't know maybe it had something to do with me. Make myself feel better about the situation in but I I tend to be further from the truth. You know if I were to die during that time I would have been in hell with everyone else. Who DOESN'T BELIEVE IN CHRIST So I got this oxycontin fiction and basically I just had to quit cold Turkey so I quit cold Turkey. I start ups doing it. I left Arizona. I didn't even graduate. I just I just went back home to outside of Chicago where I'm from and and I just basically might. Depression started to get worse and and Even though I was sober at the time you know for off the opiates I was still smoking weed. I was still you know fornicated with women as hardy. A I basically brought everything up From Arizona bag with me to Chicago and I just kept doing the same things. I'm doing so Then I started selling weed to undercover cop in Naperville. Earn a NARC narcotics an informant basically. I didn't know at the time I started selling drugs to him and You know one night. He kept asking for more weed and and I thought it was a little suspicious known very well and so one night I got him a lot and and I met him Not that far from where I live and obviously pulled up to his car ads like you got it. I I pulled it out. He wants to go ahead. And then like the Naperville Swat team pulled up like four. Five cars swore me and you know the Crown Swearing Emmy shockers on my face. The whole ordeal you know. And the guy's acting like he had no involvement already doing to follow but on the whole thing and they arrested me and I went to I went to jail and and they wanted me to inform on other people and some other criminal activity but I just I just went to jail and I ended up getting probation and so I got probation for two years while this time just getting deeper into drugs. I couldn't smoke weed. That was being drug tested but I started Taking actually a year to the day after I quit oxy Qasr and I relapse on oxy cotton and then the guy that gave me that was going to the Methadone clinic because he used to do heroin and he started giving me Methadone so I started taking Methadone and that he would give Clinton solve. Is doing that for a couple of years while on probation Just getting deeper and darker in the Senate in the world you know. I just felt so empty in my life. At that time I had. I just felt so dark so away from God. I remember this moment when I was trying. I was on drugs but I was trying to connect to God or whatever for my view of him and I. I just couldn't feel anything. I just felt so gone so dark in just so empty and I to this day. I think that's what hell maybe a little of what how might feel like just just disconnected from the lower Completely separated from like. You're know you're he's there you have no there's no connection between you and the father. I just remember that moment. It just like man. Is this so hard to go through But so anyways I I basically I had to get a job for probation is started working at warehouse. You know still doing the Methadone. At that time I started taking this drug halts box in which is to give people off heroin. Just the cycle. Continue I I remember this moment. This is probably the closest I probably overdose fifteen to twenty times. I never went to hospital because those on probation I was very paranoid. I thought I would get go to jail. And all that so I remember this one time I went to go see that guy to get Methadone and he gave me twice of what I was taking and you know I was high for maybe about five minutes and I started feeling good overdosing. I still went to work. I threw so many. Fox's at the warehouse that got super sick That night I went home. I smoke some of this fake we this spice my heart was like two hundred and fifty beats a minute. I. It was the one time my life I thought it was GonNa die and even though I was an unbelievable time. God's hand was still over me. 'cause I grabbed my Bible that I hadn't picked up in years I held onto it for dear life and I got you have to stay tonight like I'm not GonNa make it and so you know I- Grandma Bible through July. I said God you had to save me. I woke up the next morning. A peed my pants and I got through the night and I was still alive but the the point was that nothing. Nothing ever chain's islands who I look to the scriptures and I look to mark Chapter Seven versus twenty three twenty three and it says and he was saying that which precedes out of the man. That is the files for from within out of the heart of men precede. Evil thoughts Porn occasions thefts murders adultery. Deeds of coveting weakness wickedness as well as deceit sensuality. Envy Slander. Pride in foolishness. These evil things proceed from within defiled in there and that's who I was at the time I was wicked. I was terrible I did everything. Which as believers in Christ calls us not to I was a gambler. I was a foreigner cater. I was I was the biggest lie. That was the one thing I did all the time as a drug addict. I just lied. I lied about who I owed money and when I lied and said had this. When I didn't have that I lied to my family. I like my friends you know I stole from my family. I I stole so many things from everyone and just to fill fulfill mice fix that point. I was so physically addicted. It was the only thing that I was living for. And I remember after I got sober and got cleaned. My friend said to me. He said you know Alex I was GonNa. I thought I was Gonna read about you in the paper. You Really GonNa be dead or in prison ordered you know I. I don't even know how you got out of this. But he the only way I got out of it was by the grace of the Lord. Jesus Christ you know by the grace of our Lord. Because I should have I sent for there. Were things that I had done. I had I had guns to my head. I had been robbed. I remember when I was in going to school in Arizona that there was a guy who used to get. We'd from WHO is like higher up than US and in one day. Is Smoking a blunt with us at night? The next morning he's dead. He got shot to death and I mean I remember telling my parents that and they're like outs- you think there's something wrong with us like these the people you're hanging out with like this guy is dead. He got an act. I talked I told them about it. Like it was no big deal but this was the world I was living control. He relate believe me the character that I was associated with that and many of them. Some have God blesses some of them have got sober but a lot of them are gone. You know they're just they're prison and that one guy who got killed the other guys in previous and we used to hang out with him too and yeah it was just it was just crazy but So moving on basically so after that I you know I draw my drug addiction. Just got so bad and I was starting to act crazy A and I was just like so I was. I was gambling. I was losing money. I was doing so many drugs. My family was worried about me I started skipping some probation meetings. I think the summit tailender my probation. I started skipping. Some probation meetings failed dirty a couple times drug tests. And so I I my parents like you need to go to Riyadh. You need to get help. And what happened was her silent. Me Back Backtrack I was at my house and drugs on but I I was so depressed. I was so messed up. I think I was going through any withdrawals but my brother was really concerns for me and he was like he called parents. My parents right at times like something's wrong with Alex. He's not leaving the room he's not he doesn't look good. Don't crazy when I talked to him so my parents look. You need to go to rehab or you can't stay in this house sitting for so. I ended up going outpatient Rehab to start. I kinda did everything backwards. Which is usually you would go. Detox and inpatient and outpatient. I went out patient and then and then detox than impatient. So there's like a little backwards of what I did but this whole Rehab scene to me was all new. I didn't know what was going on. I thought they were going to just share me and I was just going to have no drug. I was just going to be drug free. I had no concept of what it was all about but so I ended up going outpatient rehab but you know I I still got to go home and I was still doing drugs and just didn't really care and then finally my parents like you need to go somewhere like impatient. So I went to an inpatient Rehab and that was quite experienced. It was like a kind of a country club. Ish feel like all these people you know. I'm kind of I grew up upper middle class but a lot of these people were very wealthy. And they're in there and these people have been in there seven eight times over and over again and a lot of old timers there and stuff like that and I kept thinking to myself like Manna stuff as these people by these people. Some of them have psoriasis. Like they've lost their families like I was twenty four at the time or not necessarily back. I was twenty three at the time when I was reading and I just thought I don't know I I just didn't I didn't think I was at or I was are gone but so when I went to Rehab. That was an experience in itself. One they tried to dual diagnoses. So they're trying to diagnosed with mental illness while on top of the treating your drug addiction. And so you're sitting there in a room in your with a psychiatrist. Who's telling you we'll do. You hear voices yeah here. I'm hearing voices but I'm coming off. Opiates that's a common sign of withdrawing off. Opiates hearing voices seeing things that aren't there and then he's like what you're schizophrenic. So they started prescribing risk at all which is like has some levels of methamphetamines in it. It's a really hard core Cottage and so they started giving me that which may be even more messed up. And then they're like we have all these suites. Do you think your bipolar. And unlike withdrawing I'm coming on drugs I'm like yeah I think so. Yeah I guess my mood changes a lot. Okay well we're going to give you I can't remember the name of the game Another drug at the time and and that was that was making crazy too so I think by the time I got out of that Rehab Place. I was on five or six different medications that I'd never been on in my life. Let me let me ask you this. Because that's the same thing I went through this but at like thirteen years sober or maybe eleven years sober I just. I just sort of went crazy. I was so unhappy I was so miserable and it still amazes me. How almost flippantly these psychiatrists just through labels at me? 'cause same thing they said you know it looks like you probably I don't know if they use schizophrenia. With me and they said definitely bipolar manic depressive adhd OCD. You know and a still to this day. It amazes me. How in such a short interaction? They made these decisions. Put me on these drugs that were just horrific in the results. The in what they did to me I mean would you? Is that what you experienced as well? Yeah no that's definitely what I experience I mean the somewhat consciousness I had at the time I just felt you see this doctor for like five minutes. And he's telling you things at that he is he is saying about you and you're like kind of a little messed up and you're just like yeah. I guess I am depressed. Okay Yeah my mood does change. Yeah I'm hearing voices and then they start labeling you and they're just they just start putting you on all these different drugs and I'm trying to come off drugs and I just. I just saw this last week. A woman asked me if I go see her. Nineteen year old daughter. That's in a local in a rehab place here and I hate going to those places. They're so they're so they're just the opposite of Christianity and Anna went in there. And I'm literally watching these so-called counselors with clipboards. Just go from person to person. Spend a couple minutes with them asking questions and then they go back to the doctor and you can see the doctor writing scripts and this this. This was like for thirty minutes while I was there. They must have done that to like ten people it. It's crazy so anyway. That's a side issue but I think it's it's something I wanted to bring up because a lot of people don't realize how the error. I think that that exists in all this diagnosing of the so-called disorders and diseases that they say people have. Yeah no I yeah I agree with you it it was yet and I I. I've been in a couple of assistance. Spoken chairman testimony. I hate going in those places too because it's just such a false happiness. It's just so worldly you know it's so world way but it's It's pretty wild that the one drug that they had me on Assira goal was the other one. That's what they put me on for bipolar. I remember the name now but the one drug. They had me on respite all a couple of years. After the fact when I got out I was on that drug and man that made me feel like I was in another evil world like my mind that one of the only drugs that another one I was on when I was coming out but that it was like whatever was in that drug which I found out later is a little bit is the drug driven down that like messes your brain up so much that Oh man I just I can still remember the feeling of being on there so so bad. And Yeah. They're just they're just pumping people on those. Just just giving him to my crazy. Oj Envy you. Yeah so I was on. I was in that was him. I was in central dupage hospital. That was in the inpatient program by Chicago and then so I was in there and then afterwards I left my house and I'm sorry. I left the Rehab Facility. I remember going back out to my parents house. You're like okay. What you complete the program will let you live and then you know I was just acting crazy even crazier than before these drugs I was. I was air annoyed and and I was thinking that something with the government. I remember talking about that in like I was just kept. I remember just kept attacking my family like because they had suggested I go in that place. And when you're in that place it's like such a jail like atmosphere like feels like you except you can leave. You can't leave you feel like they're like oh you can leave at any time but you're like it feels like you can't believe such a weird kind of odd but so went back home to stay with my parents. I was acting crazy getting there. Like you know what that we have to work? You need to go into another one some all this time while my probation officer. I'm just not talking to her like I am. This is a couple of months now and she doesn't know where I am. She's MIA like I'm. I'm freaking out about that as well but so I ended up going into an inpatient like a jail. Kind of impatient program where they had like alarms on the doors and it was like twenty guys in like a little. You know room with like three or four per room for for the dorm for the bed where we sleep and that was a crazy experience as well. Because a lot of those guys are in there because they're court mandated and and then my probation officer knew that I was in there so she's like you have to complete this program successfully or you leave. You'RE GONNA go to jail so at that point I had to finish it and I just remember. I remember going in there now. Remember sitting down with the lady the Director Quote Unquote of the program and she just stabbed me a meal and she's like oh where you from. What being all super nice and she's like okay. Well you know I'm like I don't know I'm supposed to be or not like this. I'm trying to tell her a little bit but what what's going on in my life. My parents dropped me off here but I just did a rehab program. Do not here just coming here than they like. Kind of walk me into another room. Then another guy beats means like hey. How's it going? He only got a bad for you tonight. Just just sleep here tonight. We'll talk in the morning and now is day one. I ended up being in there for almost twenty twenty eight days so I making I go from day one amendment that I think is going to be there for a couple of nights in the end up staying there for a long time and that place was crazy because one of the guys for some of the counselor said they had just done these like twelve or fourteen months degree programs. Basically like I guess anyone could addictions counselor. You just have to take classes in certifications and most of them are former addicts themselves. Yeah Yeah so so. I was talking about that. But like during that. It's just like groups upon groups upon groups upon groups and you just basically breaks you down because you're you have nothing else to talk to you talk to buy your whole store. You talk about everything and you're just getting broken down and I remember the one guy there he would show. Everybody loves Raymond Clips every day and we talk about the dynamic of the family. Tv family. I don't I don't I don't know if you didn't have a lesson for the day just kept putting that on but just a really strange five in the only thing they did good there was that they were like. Why did why did the last place wide it central dupage hospital? Why did they put you on all these drugs and so they took off all the drugs that they put me on which is about sits five or six? So they're like yeah. I don't know about this. This took off all of them so by the time I left there. I was only taking a couple that crazy drug. I mentioned before respite. All and then I was taking like an anti depressant so But man that that place is crazy I mean I was. I was in a place that people would murder people. Guilty full court ordered Rehab places more. A lot of those people in there were like heroin addicts recovering heroin addicts and I mean they were. They were really bad but I just remember being like just crazy just trapped in that place and so what happened was I was like I gotTa Get. Outta here like I had. I had been taking a good majority of the drugs that I put been put on before I gotTa Get. Outta here so I basically start to figure out that the counselor ahead which was disguised nations. He was he was his his his God was mother Earth and hit hugh he would go to in the morning and just go by that. There is a little plan grassy area by the door to get in. And you just go there to stand there for like thirty minutes absorbing the energy of mothers before he came into work strange but so I basically figured I had just tell this guy what he wanted to hear in order to get out and it was. It was the most bizarre situation because I'm sitting in his office and he's like hinting to me like do you want to get ou- like he. He isn't directly saying it but he's alluding like you need to tell me what what I can put down in these papers. These discharge papers in order to lead so I'm basically just aligned. I'm like I'm better. I feel great. I've understood all the heirs of my ways. I understood that you shouldn't be on drugs. And then they get to the. I have a disease heart. I of disease. I can't control it is it's with me forever. It's on just telling him and he's just typing all this out in. My parents combining just gives it to them and he's like okay. You know he could be released you inside this last year. Because if he go do something drastic. Now it's on your shoulders exhibits. It's a total total transfer of liability. Yeah Oh those crazy But then it took a turn for the worst because when I was there and he was like you can leave your parents. My parents came and got me and we're sitting there and he's like my parents are like well you know he's only been here forever. Twenty eight days or something like maybe he should be in here longer and then the council is like well. There's halfway houses he could go stay in a halfway house and I'm like Gosh and then. He's like talking about that earlier. We think that's a good idea so astor. I left that Rehab. They're like okay. Well you go in this halfway house first for amount of time and then you come back home We WanNa see the living on your own and stuff and and basically they go to see these counselors at this halfway house and do it's just a big business. Basically it's not. I don't think there's really those counselors were genuine. They don't want people to get really better. They don't care at one point. You're doing a group lesson in. Everyone had to pay the counselor ten dollars in cash like twenty people and it was just them talking in a circle. They didn't really say much. Come to find out. It was a big. They got indicted for fraud like years later. This little place out Zach. Young when I when I first got into ministry up here in Boise I was. I partnered up with a guy who I thought was a solid Christian guy and he ran three or four of these houses and it blew me away after I look at what was going on. Because he's charging these guys he's got a house. That's like a three bedroom two bath house so it's made for a family of four or whatever he's got like ten guys live in their their each. Panam around four hundred dollars a month and then he's accepting donations from people you know on the outside that he soliciting to support this so-called ministry to this. There's no way this is right. I mean these guys are paying four hundred dollars for a bunk bed. You know. And there's five of them in a room that the the for a kid and it was. It was the same thing it was just. I was thinking. How much money is this place bringing in? They don't care if people get cleaner not what you said. They don't care people get cleaner not no not at all and is such a scam. Because I remember they do this whole like we don't have a bad thing you know we don't have a bad blah blah blah and. They told my parents will like we. We don't have a bad right now. No your son needs this halfway house And then my dad's like well just writing a donation per thousand dollars and they're like okay. We got a bad guy relapse. So He's you know it was crazy and that was only. I was only in there for like one week or maybe one or two weeks but I remember that I was about eight or ten guys or something in this house's in house it should be condemned in like the West Side of Aurora Illinois. Which is like a pretty rough area and I remember these guys men. They're like to. They're no job. One guy was like an xbox stir and he was popping like twenty pills oxycontin the day he said before he came here. Another guy was like had killed the man years ago and told me how he killed a man like some the there. There's goes scary man and I remember being in that place I remember towards the end of the problem was I was still in that crazy drug risk but also it was really messed up and I kept telling him I need to get off. This is no no. No the doctor says stay on. You have to stay on what the doctor says while you're here and I'm like this is bad like I don't feel right at one point. I just like drove. I just started driving north. I just like drove for hours on just going to go and then somehow I got on the phone with someone there. You need to come back. We needed to talk about this year. Do the whole time. I'm in those places. Beard psychological mental bring yet. So yes I know so. I went back and I ended up talking to my parents. I convinced them to let me back. In and this whole time on short-term disability from my warehouse shot so I go back to bird I'm quote unquote sober. I'M STILL ON THOSE MEDICINES. Or whatever but I'm not doing any drugs at the time But so I went back to work but you know nothing was changing. I would still depressed. I was still anxious tin and now I had some traumatic experience to go along with everything. Like I've been through all those rehabs and that like I never like just thinking about those things we talk. Now they bring up so much emotion and feelings and it. It's like it's so surreal. 'cause I'm like man I was actually in those places at one time in my life wife but you know on top. I wanted to say to those places there so like you were saying they're on biblical. You know they're not godly. They they're just trying to cure a lot of people with spiritual problems with worldly means and then everything's whatever you want to believe it type of thing you know whatever your higher power is whatever. God you want to believe in you. We all have a disease which I don't agree with that. All you know and we relate on that addiction is not a disease of the biggest trip that they've said to everyone to not only make money for the drug doctors the Rehab Facilities Everything You know the core of innocent. We have sin in our life yet. You know it's not a disease at all in and the fact that they were telling this to so many people for so many years and you think oh well. Then I don't have to accept my own Actions I I don't have to take. I don't have to take responsibility for my actions to take responsibility for my consequences and you know when they're telling me this is something I'm like. It's too dizzy Warm with this. Let's it let it let you off the hook. It you get rid of your guilt your self loathing you think you do because you think if I have a disease I am not fault and what drives me nuts about the whole. The Rehab thing is bad enough. The halfway houses are bad enough. The ones that are like my pet peeve are the ones that put the Christian labels on them and they they do the same exact thing as the secular ones that they say will were Christian Rehab or were Christian Halfway House. But you go in there. They're doing the twelve steps everybody's part of a they're totally bought into the disease concept that that's when I it just makes my blood boil because it's such. It's so contrary to the Christian Gospel into the Christian faith and those places are all lower it. It's not yeah I agree with you brother. I mean it's it's pretty. Yeah I remember when I was in one of the Rehab places I remember new girl came in and she walked in and she's they were like they sent tour go. Yeah you'RE GONNA have to go to these meetings. Take it you know to stay sober these AA or NA meetings. And she's like as call and she said this in front of the whole class at the time and then everyone's laughing La. Oh come on no. It's not all she's a crazy one. Yup But man is yes. It's wild that So let me think so. I was okay so I was back at the warehouse work game and you know I. I've gotten a girlfriend about. I was in love coming out of all that I was like. I'm sober on and love and Blah Blah Blah. He you know just hooking up with her doing fornicated was her and and all that and in just still just so empty inside you know just for further further deeper deeper just getting dark darker darker and and getting more way from God on in my son and so what happened was I started dealing Underground like Poker Games. I was making a lot of money. I always you know the abstract Bro. I on a break with that girlfriend. I ended up the warehouse. I was working at I. I was so mad and angry at the time I went in one day. Like I just hated what I was doing and I went and went in. I looked at went to someone and I was like I put it in my hand together and was like boom like a bomb was going to go off and like joking around and that was not a joke. They took that very seriously and someone reported in getting fired. Warehouse out because of the. Yeah I mean I was. I was just so messed up and so when I left that that's when I started dealing underground poker games. I started gambling on. I was making good money. They make thousand fifteen hundred just in cash dealing and then I go. I wouldn't support voter senile and Yeah that was pretty much. That's pretty much what was going on at that point. I started taking Viking in pretty much every day I will take somewhere between like ten or fifteen bills a day. I just started taking. Opiates again. I didn't want to go in the hard stuff. I was a little less than the other stuff. So I can justify that my mind and so it got to the point where Let's see I was living in my grand. My GRANDPA we have put my grand home My Aunt said I can stay in there before they sell the house staying there smoking eight gambling dealing cards and taking it in pretty much just close close to my bottom. They're just hopeless and so much depression in fits of anger rage in some suicide and stuff like that and so I ended up leaving my Grandad's house that went back to my parents house. It's just it's back and forth between me and my parents you know they they. They told me they love me but they nailed me to to keep doing what I was doing and they would always help me out and things like that but so it was right around this time and this was almost six years ago. Now in it'll be secures July or six years this month in peddler my friend For shot he was a friend of mine from school. I grew up with and he was Hindu and and I had actually printed for him from my whole life I've prayed for him that you'll become a believer in Christian and everything and he started reaching out to me. I started sending me Bible verses and He took me to like a Some Christian movie. I forgot we went to a Christian movie. Here's just talked to him and stuff and I was still and this is right detail into my drug addiction. I was on the boxing. I couldn't get off suboxone. I was smoking wax which is like ninety percent. Thc and Doing that every day and say he was reaching out to me and so what happened was You know there was no one left really in my life. Those around US probably the last one last and the Guy. I was getting. My socks was also heroin a recovering heroin addict. He ended up trying to kill himself and he tried to hang himself. He broke both his wrists trying to save his life after he tried to hang himself. And so I can get drugs from him. The other guy was getting drugs from within detox so I was like you know what this is it so I quit. I quit cold Turkey on suboxone and I actually went to the emergency room after about two or three days. The withdrawals got so bad of all the withdrawals Suboxone was the worst after two. Three days physically. I felt just terrible. I went to the emergency room. I I went to them and I know that anytime. You're trying to get painkillers emergency room. You don't want to say there's pain in your stomach because they won't give you that if you go there and I went there and I was like oh I painted my stomach and it was weird that I said that I think it was God That I said that's the emergency room doctor who I also think was a Christian Because he looked at me really strange. It's like I'm not give us. You don't need this anymore. And so they just said you know take an aspirin or whatever you know go home so went home and and I just withdrew for another couple of days. I I was suicidal. I was super depressed fighting the urge to to do anything to try to get drugs anywhere else. I you know just wanted to kill myself. And after those days after those thoughts in the days went on and stuff passed out of the physical symptoms started side for the next week. And I wasn't doing anything I was just doing a lot. I was taking herbal supplements a lot of natural stuff to help me sleep and get through the day and things like that and and I called that friend up and I call my friend. Shana and I said man you know this is a like. I need to pray and I was like. I need to ask for forgiveness. I was like my life is a mess and and this is not what God has for me. 'cause he would always tell me when. I call him and the angry drugs. That at the end of every phone conversation has more for me than this. God has more. I don't even remember saying but apparently I would say this at the end of this phone call and so I called him and I was like you know what this is it. I'm done like let's pray in. I just the prayer with like five minutes long but for me it felt like two hours and I prayed and I asked for forgiveness and as soon as I said a man it was like a switch it was like God Hezekiel. Thirty six twenty. Six guys this'll give you a new heart. That was what he did for me. He he replaced my heart. Everything like I had joy in peace for the first time in years and I looked around and it was like I woke up out of a coma and I had been washed. Clean up all my sin. All my senate been removed. I had been forgiven by the blood of Christ and the Holy Spirit in me for the first time in my life and that moment and that was my conversion now and he healed me a drugs. He healed me of addiction. I was no longer like that anymore and I walked into a church for the first time on Sunday like yours and it was just it was like an instant. Everything change praise. The Lord Awesome here. How long ago was this six years in July? Okay Okay Labor for six years. Wow so you you went through miraculous on. I hate us our deliverance. Because it's so abused now day the Lord The Lord. Set You free from everything that you had been trapped in because of sin now what he done you know what? What's it been like since then it's amazing I mean one thing though? Is You know once. Had you're not GonNa have your best life now? You're not everybody is not GONNA be Great. You will have joy peace for the first time but you know there's never been walk in my life as a Christian has never been way more difficult than when when I was in unbeliever. You come against so much opposition spiritual warfare all these things that come against you But it's refining you. It's making you holy. You know in the eyes of God. It's growing you in holiness. Sanctify neo. it's something us. Christians have to go through in order to get us to where we need to be Gaza's exactly now when this happened. Did you understand that you needed? There's a Wurley repentance. And there's a repentance and salvation. Did you realize when you pray that prayer that you were did you have conviction of your sin? You needed the atoning sacrifice of Jesus. Christ you need it to be washed clean in his blood In order to be freed from what was what you were trapped in. Oh yeah one hundred percent because I grew up in the church the pseudo church or whatever so I knew I knew what Christ had done. Drew Centers you know. Mueller got it done by Sam on Jesus Christ died on the Cross so we may have forgiveness. Those things are in the back of my mind. I mean yeah that that was it you know and and in earlier testimonies. I've been like you know he had washed clean eight years but not watch me clean my whole life. You know I I was born in Sin And everything before that you know it's gone. It's forgiven by Jesus Christ So yeah so yeah that. That's what happened and I mean and then after that you know I I've seen it. Maybe it'll probably like a couple months or a couple months after that I fell into a sin with a woman She was the devil. Hasn't heard prepared already esther between the Christian and Cayman and I fell I fell into sin was her and I was super convicted. You know I felt so bad about what I've done. I called a friend again and I prayed I ask for forgiveness and there were a couple other times. They're a couple karnal since here and there. But that was the one thing that's the difference between unbelievers and believers when I was in unbeliever. I never really felt bad about things. There was nothing really that made me feel bad but once I became a Christian that was when I had the conviction of Sin I knew when I did something wrong against God. You know that I it. Tore me up. It made me feel so bad. You know to have this holy God yet while praise the Lord Man. I love these stories. Because it's it's so important that we hear these things nowadays because you just and I'm sure you know this There's so much corruption in the modern church you know in the modern the the consensus so many Christian leaders is you know maybe ten percent of the people claiming to be Christian actually are Christian or actually saved and very true. Yeah the Christian Church looked so much to worldly solutions to world may answers and it's so sad because we have everything we need in God's word second Timothy Three sixteen seventeen we have the authority and the sufficiency of God's Word in scripture by the power of the Holy Spirit through the Gospel. And it's just so sad. That stories like yours are not being told every day It's it's it's so beautiful and it's such a blessing And what you went through should not be Rare you know what I'm saying. It should be something that that so many people have experienced and are blessed with instead of being trapped to the suffering and the pain and the sin that they're trapped in trying all these different ways of getting out of it and getting through it. Yeah I completely agree with you and I think the one thing I tell people now is that re. I wish I wish we were more transparent. You know not just as Christians but as human beings you know you don't know you know I drive. I run this ministry vessels for Christ now but I have to work for Bell South so dry guber lists driving over in lashes. I share this story. I share this testing share about Christ with a lot of different people. And you know you don't know what someone's going through in that moment you don't know how many times I picked two people who had six toxic in their pocket and we're like man I'm trapped. How do you get out of it? You know when I share about Jesus Christ what. He's done for me what he can do for them. Is this happens you know? Yeah this happens a lot and it's like you just don't know you might be talking to sharing Christ with who is going to commit suicide that night or something. Yeah in our society is so based on image and facade the like you said no one's transparent even Christians and that's a tool of Satan. You know everybody is obsessed with putting on a front appearing to be a certain way. That's pleasing to the world but as Christians. I think it's our duty that the Lord gives us is to peeled away and strive to see the condition that people are really in and that will mean we're either GONNA learn from them and they're going to be a blessing to us in our walk with Christ because of their walk with Christ or we're GonNa see that like you said. They've got drugs in their pocket. Even though you know the pocket might be the pocket of a three thousand dollar Armani suit you know what I mean. They're still totally dying in their sin and they're just They have no idea how to get that out so that they can be helped with it. Hopefully that makes sense but I said Yeah No I. I understand what you're saying. And Yeah you touched on a good point you know when. I was an unbeliever. I remember the pride that you have in your life. You know that. Everything's gotTa be good on the outside. You gotta look good. You don't want if it's like a a weakness thing you don't want to appear weak to someone by what you've gone through. That might make yourself look worse. And and that's like the total opposite of what God's call to do you know he wants to share these mornings. He wants to encourage people he he he keep the testimony in my life is for God's glory you know it's not in vain. I don't take it for granted. I thank the Lord for Everything. I've gone through up to this point in my life. He or his gory. It's to show people have said they've been grace through his son. Jesus Christ Pris- award so tell me a little bit about vessels for Christ before we wrap this up. Yes so After I got converted after I became a believer. God put it on my heart to do missions to start doing ministry overseas but it took about two years till he worked on my life a lot of other deep-rooted sins in my life that he wanted to work on and go through and on that I had to give him a threat that period of time and so after about two years I ended up through a series of events I went to Belize and I actually went down there to volunteer at a children's home With a friend of mine as the first term I've been a third World Country First Time I've been overseas and I just like I'm doing mystery of the Gospel. assured the Gospel Jesus Christ with them and a couple months later actually went back and I met my wife surge. She's from here. She's from North Carolina originally but we met down there We fell in love. We got married and God put it on my heart to to go to some of these other countries and and work with churches in if not just in Belize but in in Mar- in India we have partners. We worked with We basically financially support them from over here and then I travel with their see. What's going on? And he just helping. Equipping them in anything. We can just to spread the gospel of mostly mostly an unreached areas. The people that have maybe not heard about Jesus Christ or have limited knowledge of him And we work with these partners. We have these pastures and He's missionaries in Evangelise to go out there and show the Gospel with them so We have to orphanages into churches and Mar we work with. We have one church in India and we have a A couple of kids we've been sponsoring and believes in a church. Our probably going to start working with and beliefs and we're looking to maybe planet church in locked in the next couple of years in Eastern Europe. Awesome praise Lord. I love that kind of stuff. That's what we do in Kenya Awesome. What's the website vessels for Christ dot Org vessels for price dot? Org is the website you can see all the information there and then you can sign up for our newsletter if you like it and I sent updates about what's going on here. I'll definitely do awesome. Yeah I'm heading out to Kenya next Wednesday I I love. It's only like being in the US short period of time. I love being overseas. I love meeting people over there. You're believers Li like it's it's just such a great time on your own is so different yet. There's such a passion for the word in some of these countries that we've got such an apathetic Viewpoint in so much of Christianity. I think it's very refreshing. You know to go to some of these places to see their passion and so needed now because Now how how did you come to me? I know you know me through facebook. Who Do we have in common like? Who Do you know that I know? Cross your podcast. And I think that's when I reached out but I know you know I've I've met Andrew rap toward a couple times. You know handwriting okay. Yeah you know Andrew Okay. And then he came across the pond. You cut out there for a second one. You were explaining that sorry Okay so so. You're you're solid biblically. So if you know Andrew and these other guys but what I wanted to say was. It's such an important time for us to be edifying and strengthening the body of Christ around the world because of the false teachings that are being exported from America. And I'm sure you've seen that and it just blows me away I've lived in five countries and most of 'EM I was working in the secular world but now the point I was making is. Is there so much Apostasy with with the NRA movement and all this other stuff around the world. I love what you're doing because We need to not just go reaching the unreached with the Gospel. But what we've gotta realise an on a whole. I think you probably agree with this with the modern churches so much that appears to be the modern church is void of the Gospel. And you know so many countries that that that you'll look at Lena like on this the Cia factbook database. It'll say it's you know sixty percent Christian but then when you look at the denominations or the influence religiously in that country it's mostly Roman Catholic Mormon or whatever it is in you realize other so much work to be done so I really. I love what you're doing and I just pray that Lord blesses it as you go forward. I appreciate it brother. Yeah the The Prosperity Gospel so rampant and Southeast Asia and southern India in India. What me and my wife saw when we were there last year it was just the Hinduism Christianity. And they call themselves. Christians insisted exists up like that. But it's not Christian at all it's not biblical at all. It's just a Mesh together of two religions where they say. Jesus is one of our gods type of thing. There's no repentance. There's no he's the one God he's the he's the true God. Jesus and God is the same. There's none of those basic Doctrinal Salvation terms. It's all kind of makes together. So that's exactly what we're trying to fight against because Jay like you said. It's just just to rampant. Now it's like everywhere. Yeah I know. It's next year the next few weeks when I'm in Kenya. That's what will be working on a law with all the pastors that we have there now is doctrine you know the authority and sufficiency of scripture making a stand Against All odds you know as this prosperity in a are Bethel influence just creates around the world. It's not first Gerbil there and I'll have to come back on and share I. I didn't even get into to share my experience with being in the charismatic stuff for the first year of my My Christian life Some of the things I saw the things that I heard And everything I think it'll be encouraging to listening. Yeah for sure. Stop. I'm GonNa make a note of that when I get back the end of March. I'd love to have you on and talk about that. Yeah I think it'd be good at it. I love just how God draws you out. I thank him for that and then he draws you just to his word and when you start reading his word and reading about True Saving Faith and saving grace and jets started learning so much about church history and the Trinity. These these different. Do you see how much of that is just? So self centered self indulgent in just it's just and mysticism in wages and in all of that you start to see. How much did that and and it's like a friend of mine still caught into it so it's like any time. I could come on his chair and compare that stuff to what scripture really says. Let'S PLAN ON AL. Call you when I get back and we'll schedule it For sure all right buddy. Thank you so much for coming on. I've loved this. It's been very inspiring And Alec on I look forward to having you on again again This is Alex. Right and his website for his ministry as vessels for Christ dot org give it a look.

The jeremy renner app jeremy renner released a statement today. It was incredibly upsetting. His app would be shutting down for good on. Here's what he said okay and again if you don't know the jeremy renner app is jimmy renner app apple jeremy renner the social media platforms jeremy renner his music. You can post photos. You can't click on profiles so like you could really just interact on one post and if you post something and they're not notifications go too far down around you. Then can't see your own post. It's terribly constructed at but it was glorious for like twenty four hours. I said the app has jumped the shark literally. Do you too clever individuals and he said literally bonds jumping. The shark was him literally jumping the shark. This seems very figuratively tiddly unless there was a shurgging jump that's true okay <hes> do too clever individuals that were able to manipulate ways to impersonate me and others within the app. I've asked like signing up like he's acting. He got fucking hacked by like some super genius kid and it's like no we were just people signing up under fake names escape x the company that runs shut it down immediately in refund anyone who has purchased any stars of the last ninety days we'll get back to that in a second what was supposed to be a place for fans to connect to the judge has turned into a place that is everything i detest and can't or won't condone my sincere apologies for this to have not turned out the way it was intended to all the super fans who have supported report me with your words of encouragement your words or encouragement jeremy might be wrong might be right though amazing art stories and time shared on the app genuine thank. You and i hope to see you on instagram. Twitter youtube and facebook signed j._r. So a couple of things omar god germany runners-up been destroyed big the building golden. Daddy go by jail when you know that there's a v._g._a. J._r. like you can't do the have you heard of this app <unk>. Who's taking the heat for this because you know. This wasn't like he had anything to do with it. I'm sure but he's very mad at someone right. They cleaned it up because i'll tell you what jacket a fake accounts kendrick was you were so i start out with cameron so you reply to jeremy renner picturesque traffic asking why i said i said hey hey buddy. It's would you like to go get a hamburger sometimes too great to catch dash ben affleck and some lady respond to me like hey. If you're gonna control at least use the right grammar said hey i was in the town and that was my only and then you were kirk kerr cameron right yeah of course salmon yeah saving christmas love your stuff jeremy peters like the god ads now right like he does like pop ups like the movies the <hes> of the boats that the rapture movies over those and like it was like the the leftovers but it was the he is based around the biblical prophecy rapture. It was called like <hes> left behind the left behind series good for us in a lot of i think i i t to your question eddie. I think i think jeremy renner's mad at us like he he he he did say say that the there was a company that runs the app so he pushed pushed him off through them under the bus. Jeremy renner doesn't run this app but he the <hes> he he went into the guilt trip to say like it's supposed to be a place for fancy connect and it turns into place that everything i detest in and i just didn't know he hated dennis in his bronze that much about so. Many people thought this was trill. This is one of the best complex i've ever gotten. People thought they were like holy. Shit trill is in the jeremy renner app his dennis franz. I actually signed up dennis franz so i was that was that was a compliment. People think i'm as funny as mr ball but what i did was i just commented on almost every single jeremy renner picture from the last month or two and my i i would i would comment. Things are make sure to have the same thing in each one. So somebody was bon. Jovi bon jovi. There are many impersonations by the way let's get out of the way dennis franz and ben affleck worth the problem. It was like casey anthony jeffrey epstein those those were the problems i i said great picture jon bon jovi this reminds me of all the great hair and wigs or makeup department had on the set of my popular television show n._y._p._d. Blue and then dash dennis franz n._y._p._d. Blue i did the the same when i signed up said hey it's me dennis franz from the hit show n._y._p._d. Blue signed dennis franz and so i did it over and over again got a lot of hate it. I kind of liked it. Stems franz sounds like so harmless. I i've never had a parody account or anything like that. I was so pumped. I've got banned within about about an hour of me realizing that i might have a gold mine to make something funny for like a couple of days. Band gone made fake facebook's the next day all band. I'm actually kicked off facebook on those accounts to my kirk cameron. I yes so it was it was disappointing because it was it was actually genuinely fun and i didn't feel bad because like you said ben affleck hamburger funny right i was being dennis that is front and then you had people pretend to be in there. The problem exactly kick them off. That's too far dennis. Franz constantly asked me if he's my father so i appreciate you guys those years. Is that why yeah i use acog. I two guys your father. Thank you for sure so i. I don't know they were like that. Took a team like they were banning. I think people saw this got serious and he he starts the app off or he started past tense the app off saying like it's been too hard to reply to people on twitter twitter and facebook but there are a lot of people in that app said any harder. I don't know i it didn't make much sense but it's a shame that something is good as that has to ago it was it was pretty great and he coined the phrase. I didn't know happy rennes day. It's always wednesday in my heart. The first comment under happy rennes day from the picture that i see on on here said austin powers yeah baby. There's a judge brings me so love rennes day stuff like it was the dumbest shit and you're gonna start friends friday. We're gonna we lo- wednesday. How about we do franz friday and you never got to that point because he banned us. Also i spent like ten bucks on star search the end what does it do. You means yeah you boost your post so it's like the top of the order so it's more likely eh jeremy renner actually seize your comment him making gross money off this. Oh disgusted not only think about it. Although he does the the developers although presumably concern shady it is that he didn't pay a lot so shout out to you renner your looking at the pricing structure for the stars so it starts at one ninety nine for for two hundred stars which by the way that equals like i think like two boosts to like twenty yeah go ahead sorry then it goes all the way up to a very not arbitrary number of stars fourteen thousand eight hundred stars which is a ten thousand thousand two hundred stars and getting a forty six hundred stars for free. This costs ninety nine dollars and ninety nine cents in in real world money. You just get some brands books. Which is what he should have called. It just called it like ren bug ren book anyway as much i. I think what this just goes to show is jeremy renner. I perceive him to be one of the most serious people in hollywood hollywood <hes> based upon a lot of his interviews interactions with people like jimmy fallon and our prince james corden. He probably didn't get at at at no point when they're explaining to him like a group of trolls have taken over in their ironically posting is o._j. Simpson he probably lives like why are they doing that. No idea why people do stuff on the internet i feel like he's just doesn't know how the internet works. Get all not even social media really because he made his own social media because the other ones confuse them so much. Somebody's like someone's like yeah. Have you ever been on the internet. He's like yeah. That's that's the place people by stars from me. You can buy my stars. They're all right that that's the retrospective of the of the chairman apiece that was just that was just. I was never gonna talk about it again. Can we talked about last bottles elvin and then you just shut it down today. In the morning <hes> down the is it only gone the he made his money. He's he probably had a hefty penny off that. I don't think about the developers work great no. They were actually infect bad. It's like let's just do instagram except there's feeds the inability to profile. You can't see profile. He can't see your own comment. You can't scroll like and and and again once the post that you posted hosted <hes> got too far down notification block you could no longer go click on it. You can only gonna come in yeah yeah. It's just not great not great all right. Let's let's do a quick read. Let's let's do a quick when here <hes> you guys know that yamaha makes pianos and motorcycles yes oh.

They knew we had a lot of trails to talk about a shot up the rundown of the top with bad boys for life. Here's the premise marcus burnett burnett burnett. I forget that. I don't remember a guy who has what bad bad boys in a long time true. I the only thing i remember boys to is is the mouse or rat sex scene. Oh i totally forgot off to a bad start there for an pronunciations today. That's one on the board does lucca yeah. He's now police spectrum. Mike lowry is in a midlife crisis. Both of them united tonight again. When a romanian mob boss whose brother they defeated promises them and important bonuses revenge just the duo or about to retire officially directed by a deal deal el arbi and bill follow not michael bay michael bay did not return for the third movie which can't say it's the worst thing in the world. Martin lawrence will smith back my guy joe. Pantoliano ignorance is bliss. I love him. The fucking stake in some sopranos vanessa hudgens also in this one char alexander senator ludwig who was the villain in the first hunger games. <hes> you recognize him probably wasn't striker something think he's in a viking scorpion. Something like that mr to it wasn't this is one of the top district is one of the best districts also d._j. Collared he'll be well him and will smith collapsed at the end of a ladan <hes> eddie. We'll start with you your guest bad boys for life for me. I'm going to be honest. I got some hobson shaw vibes from this. I didn't hate it and i wanted to hate this movie kind of intrigued by it so let me ask you this first and foremost as a movie podcast. Do you guys movie shame around here. Now of course no no okay because i've never seen the other ones so the first two yeah. That's what i'm saying. It's like everyone's got the movie with like i've never seen this one and it's like dude. What how come you never seen it. You know what i mean louis the scene from hot fuzz. You've never seen bad boys. Do you ever though joe pantoliano. He looks fantastic. Watch a trailer he look. I hope he has a big role in it. Because he looks he looked great running around gone. Fuck fuck fuck over went over and over again. It's like all right joe. I love martin. I think i like martin more than i like will smith okay if anybody's steps up to you and you say bad boys and like freaks the fuck out like you will do when when someone says emptying the godfather tell me shut the fuck up. I mean bad boys. Bad boys has some cultural relevant but if anyone gets angry at you that just that's a bit aggressive. I wouldn't call it must see by any stretch of the imagination using are you. Are you in on this <hes>. I think it looks like it kind of knows what it is which is helpful right so like the bad boys. Both movies are very very. Are you like corny action movies which like i get behind. If that's the way it looks like it's an updated version of that bad boys two whatever the filter they used on it throughout the entire movie very michael bay very very michael bay they didn't like it so looking at it through sunglass exactly yeah like very yellowish orange tint on the whole movie and it looks like the got rid of that has some updated kinda shooting style for more like modern action scenes so i can get behind that as long as it doesn't try and take itself too seriously and i'm very much behind that yeah i agree. I don't think it will i did. They know what they're going for this big old nostalgia. It's been awhile since we got a bad boys. Spend what sixteen years is this coming out this year at twenty. It'll be safe six years as of right right now seventy s. sixteen no be the seventeen numerical years but i'm excited. I think the combination of martin lawrence and will smith it is <hes> through the bad boys bad boys. Two movie was pretty much the only thing about those movies that was enjoyable. That's what people remember them four and i don't really remember anything anything other than <hes> like cool cars and explosions and that's your standard michael bay jerry bruckheimer fair but what set it apart was just the buddy cup cup dynamic in buddy kept on amex or kind of something that never really gets to me always enjoy good buddy cup bill. It's lines most when he says like no. You can fix the debt in the car. It's all remember this. I like this banter. They got going on. It's releasing alongside doolittle robert downey junior dr doolittle doolittle movie. She's tough tough crowd. I just like that. It's not taking itself too seriously. I like the end of first of all the remix version of the song pretty good in the trailer and i like the end and yet all the people in the precinct singing it and shut the fuck up. You're saying it wrong. They're hardly to learn. That's a funny little quip. I like that. It's a good little trailer stinger that does you can and have a toronto. Excuse me like slurring drunk. You can't have a trailer nowadays little stinger at the end. It's great to see will smith doing a sequel as well. You didn't do the independence-day. I didn't stay true and so it's like he he actually he's feeling a soldier. This time i kill them off in a movie. Is that what he was dead. Do like that one. I i gave that movie with three out of one hundred three out of one hundred. I affirm three. That's that's a harsh three. It was a very harsh three yes so what are the only sequels done. He did men in black two. He did <hes> bad boys to do three as well who some say he did. A sequel to a franchise this is what i mean more than anything else so demand in black two and bad boys two and i think they unfortunately cancelled westworld to <hes> or no is it robot west with two unfortunately cancelled that ashamed great song in that movie great part of the whole movie. You want to get that thing going yeah anything else bad boys for life. I think it was i. I think the trailer was good. I'm i'm very surprised. I'm very surprised again by the way now that will smith would and create some buzz but not the harp on what i said about terminator trail last week dropped it cold dropped at middle of the day no build up till you why surprise couple thousand retweets and i'm sure a ton more on the official count. It was good good little marketing buzz today. People were talking about it so bad. Boys smart move. I think people are trying to talk themselves into people are trying to justify why they liked the the trailer. I think it's easily justifiable. I think it's a decent trailer. There's nothing wrong with it. Here's a trailer that came out the other day. This was a shocker as well the joe joe rabbit trailer. This is the first first full trailer for tyco. T._d.'s joe joe rabbit. I'll read the synopsis again. During the second world war lonely german boy joe joe rabbit bessler has has his worldview turned upside down. He discovered that his single mother rosie played by scarlett. Johansson is having a young jewish girl plymouth. Thomas mackenzie great young actress in their attic aided by only only his imaginary friend in the form of idiotic version of adolf hitler played by tyco t._d. Joe must confront his blind national liz. I can't talk today. <hes> san rocco also in this stephen merchant rebel wilson this trailer. I couldn't have been first of all one good glad this is coming out disney. There was rumors that they may not want to release yes. It looks like that's water under the bridge is going to be coming out. It comes out pretty. Soon actually comes out october eighteenth. We're going to get our first reviews weakened at toronto international film festival. Maybe we'll get a ten minute sanding ovation. You never know that all eight or ten minutes standing oh but trailer trailer pretty good <hes> it starts off. Trill trill did the song at the start a little german version of smash mouth. That's-that's didn't expect that ever hear no i it's. I think you have the majority opinion there on smash mouth yeah. I didn't expect your german remix of what was it wait believer. I think that's the name of the song yeah by smashmouth smashmouth smashmouth singing no for sure me is just a song but it's a german band or whatever but believers a monkey so you're right then it was that cover to yeah all all the all the article said smash mouth all right. It was a smash mouth song correction though by the way regardless pretty cool trailer yeah. How wish why did i i. I feel like i should know that song but yeah you're right. I know this is cool. This is that that it's funny because it's like you're saying with the disney thing that big worry around that was were they going to <hes> where they're going to tweak it any and it seems like with the release being somewhat imminent. The answer's no i. We'll say like probably not a great day to be p._r. For this movie no a we won't get into what she loves during the fucking pot not just unforced errors loves the unforced errors but <hes> other than that looks like a good movie <hes> take it what t._d.'s in the <hes> he's got kind of earned our trust and that's where all stand on it towel find the smashmouth find song any. What did you think i mean really and pushed. I feel too because a lot of movies. I've seen you've frequently seen the trailer my kind of movie. I'm sure it will be the the boy scouts. There's gonna be some funny moments. Manson obviously hitler's like a character. You have them do something out of the ordinary like he do and it's funny. You know so <hes> like i said i i. I won't say it but it looks. It looks like people will join. I think did you see authority. I do not oh see see not home and then you we lining up to watch this everytime he took the shadows. Okay i gotta we gotta get you playing movies. No yeah yeah. I it sounds like just gotta get in on the joke here. We'll get you hooked because like once so you once again. Let's take a train. It's very tough to get off. Okay <hes> but yeah no. It looks good and again the one thing i <hes> let me give you more than anything else as the people that i know that have seen this said that the script doesn't rely too much on like lazy humor so it's not going to be oh learned nazis bad. Oh let's ignore. It's very witty and good humor. It's not lazy which is good and i think that a lot of the questions that got left within the first trailer get answered in this trailer and it's just a more complete picture of what the movie's gonna be like and i'm super excited looks stylistically great very taika. Love it and so what someone compared to it's sort of like <hes> oh what's his name <hes> shoot fucking budapest hotel guy wes anderson. It looks like wes anderson. Hitler movie and i'm very for that. I mean i i'm i'm into it. I wear white t._d. Guys so we gotta get you caught up. I mean it sounds like this. I just guy so he is the fucking guy he truly has figured out. Refinance out is it is it is believer we are. We aren't going nuts. Shame came on the fucking articles that apparently by jack white. What are you <hes> right. Jack white did a german cover of believer believer. It's what it's what it says. It's what it's there. Were two songs in the trailer. There were two songs the first twas i'm a believer by the monkees okay so this won't got it right and then heroes by david bowie german version is gonna do the german version of seven nation army what it would have gotten people too scared understandably so wow all right attributed to the fucking monkeys people monkeys roll over in their grave are they did they live. I'd say half an guess right now. Yeah yeah at the snap <hes> moving on this one man. I don't have many takes on this. This is the most internet movie movie of the year. They made a movie out of between two ferns with zach galifianakis. The premise zach galifianakis dreamed of becoming a star arbat when will ferrell discovered his public access tv show between two ferns and uploaded it to funnier die zach became a viral laughing stock now zak in his career taking a road trip to complete a series of high profile celebrity interviews restored reputation. Zach alpha nak is obviously the lead here but people playing themselves will ferrell math mcgahn benedict cumberbatch peter dincu chrissy teigen david letterman jason schwartzman tiffany haddish paul rudd rashida jones it was hard to read rasheeda and haddish tiffany radish rush john legend adam scott brie larson john ham aquafina hailee steinfeld john choky honorees chance the rapper and tessa thompson <hes> ken jack internet man himself. I got i mean between two ferns very funny. I i don't have the slightest bit of interest in this movie. I'm i'm kinda interested in it mostly because it's free movie we were big fans like anytime netflix yes so it was like a streaming movie. We automatically like it. Your saw ten points more just because we don't have go to see it sure so between two ferns big fan of gulf next i loved between two ferns actual was was it on it was insult- swim right the original. Yeah i think so yes so i i liked watching that. When watching mostly funnier di was adult swim on what i mean now i i look think funnier died in my head. Yes okay so and i was just about to say i remember watching most of it on youtube more than anything else but i always thought it was funny like very dry comedy <hes> and this is probably the biggest kassy's put together together ford outside of it. I think he had obama on once but other than that. I think i'm i'm in. I'm in on this. I'm a golfer guy. You between two ferns guy listen i. I'm not at all and when i when he's russell the trailer i was like i was gearing up to be like okay like whatever but i actually thought the trailer was really done well like i think this is how you doing ensemble. No happy fucking new year's day like you know that eh this seems like like like whether or not whether you like chris teague it or not. The ending scene was funny. The one where you hold their hand up to the room and he's measuring the plants are or the ferns. I should say i i enjoyed it. I think it was. I think they're going to do it right because i don't think anyone's gonna be overbearing their appearance. I guess yeah new year's day well known for the casting michael bloomberg. Bergaz himself has a good one. People were going nuts over that trill this. This is something like for internet as we talk. We've never really touched on on between two ferns. I i've been a fan here and there of the <hes> the between two ferns what what was the one he did with <hes> <hes> gosh. Someone got really competitive with them and it was pretty funny for was it damon. I don't know i do remember talking about but vaguely. I think a lot of pretty combative between twos backyards i mean i like the original concept dozen quite i mean. I'm now that i can say. I'm sure like you know i don cheadle captain planet funnier die movie. I would watch that that was such a good skit. That's fair. That's fair jig damiri history pretty good. No i think it was was a steve carell who tried to turn it around on him or something. I can't remember i like him from spot to spot. I'm skeptical of this it. It looks funny but it's it's. It's a weird premise for movie which doesn't make it bad. It just potentially makes it harder to pull off in a manner that leaves you feeling like you watch to complete cohesive movie. I kind of like the netflix may have bought the rights or something i i mean. This may not be how it worked and approximately the production but i'm not going to it's like they bought the rights to do between two ferns and i respect there like let's make it different. Let's let's let's mix it up a little bit making a movie i did that. I'm always i'm always an idiot for cameos. It's really like technically cameos cameos. I guess you loved it. I loved entourage i. I i think entourage gets a necessarily hated upon pawn i do. I think it's a good show watching it today no do i think it's a good show in the context of two thousand five yeah they they. Your sucked asked last one of the best shows of the year. It wasn't nobody nobody ever thinks back to two thousand five thousand six cad. Take me back to two thousand five five i know why are you what i'm not a macabre way. That's a direct shot to the naperville so we're we're still going on here. Want to save the by the way we're doing purchases earlier hyun ready or not in top least favorite sports movies. We don't offend any couple movies in the mid west based on that list hope. We don't offend anybody all right. We'll we'll see we'll see. I'm already waiting for rookie of the year. That's that was a straight direct shot when they built the white sox stadium the the new comiskey which is now like one dot cellular hand-held dot com field or whatever whatever why didn't they make the the the home plate face the skyline well they wanna on gary. Indiana is what it faces says now so. I don't want knows that e._s._o. Disc outfield when you're looking out gary nance so the so many stadiums have skyline yeah but not on us and gary get awa- fta view now not a great smell from gerry. I'm guessing that it was like the sun or something. That's just what i'm going to tell myself because i just i'd never got folks. That never got it. It's been talking chicago talking talking midwest a couple of talking midwest nice moments <hes> we got one more trailer before. We have an ad read here. How about greta in hansel. How long have you been been looking for a new remake of <hes> hansel and gretel since a lot of people like handling. Don't get it either. I mean how how often do you damn if they could make another hansel and gretel or hansel hansel. What are you dark premise on hansel and gretel so i don't know if you guys remember that one but it was a very strong episode great show so i'm kind of excited for war. Wasn't there a hostile slash hansel and grit with jeremy renner say. I think there was one. It was her in the the girl from the clash of the titans. I don't remember her name. Brothers grimm brothers also i do think touchdown hansel and gretel. Oh it was just called hansel and gretel witch hunters sick ah which owned he's got guns but they're witch hunters funky johnson honestly to that's probably closer to the <hes> the the actual fairytale than the the distilled sanitized hans and gretel version. I got in kindergarten premise. The story is described. I'm just being set a long time ago. In distant galaxies far get a real explanation premises written so weird and we competed pedia. She'll learn to my librarian various. <hes> the story is described as being set a long time ago in a distant fairytale countryside and focuses on a young girl put by so feel 'less lillies elites her little brother sam leak into a dark wood in into a dark wood in search took food and work it just as dark would only to stumble upon a nexus of terrifying evil. It actually looks kinda spooky. Yeah <hes> spooky true. I kind of bought it would spooky little shines on my pants yeah. It's it kind of had a witch vibe. Little witchy supernatural witchy has i liked to which five <hes> to that i mean the which i i think it was good as everyone thought it was. I thought like the way it was shot in the woods. You know they didn't go to village with it and went more which y so. I thought it was. I thought it was the looks pretty good. That's like <hes> i mean i guess the witch was in the original fairytale but i never remember that much about hansel and gretel. All i remember the breadcrumbs right. I yeah breadcrumbs breadcrumbs definitely breadcrumbs so breadcrumbs remember making up right now. I think it's the which leads him there with the breadcrumbs or something and then she tries to eat them right kids. You wanna see a dead body the german which you always this is the time this we're in spring. Daniel stern territory <unk> howard. It's davis center. It's been an extreme until after the ad read got it someone aiming here seen it all worked for the howard stern show but i i will reveal who it is. We'll get to the howard stern talking a second here anything else on i mean why are they cranking. He's like do they have the rights to hansel and gretel. They must've just expired after like two hundred years yeah. That's probably common domain. Whatever yeah the tragedy of the commons all right quick ad read here here for a company that we haven't done one for yet and before we get into it a little bit of a tie in true what your sneakers on is by of all time the gary v k swiss yes.

Hustlers remember that movie. We talked about based on a true story. The story centered around centers around a group of strippers in new york city led by an aging aging an ambitious single mother as they live stealing hustle dozens of wealthy men when the sex industry bottoms out during the late two thousand financial crisis a journalist covering story for magazine interviews one of the ringleaders and tries to figure out where it all went wrong this comes out september thirteenth. It debuts at tiff this weekend the toronto international film festival stars constance woo jennifer lopez julia stiles kiki palmer lily reinhart lizardo very popular right now in cardi b. new trailer kind of the same as the other one so i mean we've already talked about eddie hustler. Are you going to be lying to see hustler. I'm upset that you forgot usher yeah. Okay playing himself as well boss move known for the movie the faculty. If you guys have seen rate movie great sludge jon stewart gas dead low key. One of the biggest star studded cast like ever ever like that. There's there's some big timers in the faculty. He's incredible to usher really yeah shoot or do you play froze growth owns biggest fan. I think that's a kamioka tree washer. Damn faculty really did have baller jesus christ patrick brewster her josh hartnett. Oh my god. I know it's weird. It goodness dodger. That would be a good one if it's on anything pretty good also in the a._b._c. made for t._v. Movie japan show about pinocchio were julia louis dreyfuss played the blue fairy and drew carey played. Japan got new one of those coming out to think god. What a new pinocchio terry. Whose line is it anyway impression can they wouldn't do that. I sure can't i don't think i don't even know what your carry sounds like anymore. Just talks fast prices right guy. I don't know washer played island ringmaster. You remember how star studded his the drew carey. Show was. Oh my god yeah. He got everybody on their. You had <hes> <hes> who's the guy the scottish guy the talk show craig craig ferguson craig ferguson was on it <hes>. He's so goddamn funny. Oh he's the funniest of them the i i did a ranking of brown's twenty years today and number ten for me was drew. Carey did the intro to the browns. I came back in nineteen ninety nineties. He's like let's get going. Let's make some noise. Let's let's leave our mark than they lost forty-one. Nothing's tough. That's rough can have them back after their carry. Stay the fuck away from the game on sunday. They please please stay away love you. They'll season ticket holder. Yeah i think he is this movie. I don't know do you think it's going to do. Royal hustler's like this cast is i kinda no joke i mean i don't know if they can act but like it's a true story too which is kind of even more interesting liz. Oh fans jaylo fans of cardi b. fanned and glad to see julia stiles back back in the game not a born movie yet for whatever it is it. Is it p._g. Thirteen it has to be out assuming it's gotta gotta be yeah we'll do it will do really well p._g. Thirteen rated r really interesting about that. That's surprising like doc <hes> that makes it more interesting from my standpoint. Just in terms of you know maybe it being little grittier or whatnot but you would have thought just just with like the the mass appeal of the some of the stars in this movie to a wider age range that they would have tried to fit a p._g. Rating into this p._g. Thirteen rated p._g. P._g. stripper movie. It'd be tough. Yes thirty million dollar. Budget seems a little high though i'm surprised by yeah yeah i mean i don't really we know what type of production value than maybe. J.lo's getting a nice check out of this might be her twenty nine million the leader of the court yeah barstool podcast corp big cat and alex rodriguez. You'll get a podcast called the corporate if you're not willing to deal and making deals shark tank shark alex rodriguez bass former baseball player yes. I put shark tank. There's like a p._m._t. Next to go nuts. I believe parliament takes screaming next door jesus. You are the number one pot scream. All you guys won't respond interfaces yeah. They just had another million listeners. Let's move on just mercy. A little more serious movie here attorney brian stevenson takes the case of walter mcmillen. A man imprisoned for murder the person taking the case michael b jordan. The person imprisoned jamie foxx brie larson also in this tim blake nelson o._j. Shea jackson junior this movie comes out on christmas but again debuts at the toronto international film festival this weekend most movies for the rest of the year like most movies movies not star wars basely premiering and cats premiering this weekend. Yes that's we'll get a lot information on. That would have been just mercy. I like the duo of michael jordan jamie foxx into it very strong. Doing what do you call pre larsen as well of really interesting stories based on a true story right yeah. It's it's based offer the biography or i think it's a biography of of bryan stevenson or a book he wrote yes. I think always interesting like innocence project project sorta stuff right like it always sort of capture. Everyone's attention <hes> what was making a murderer <hes> sort of stuff although i'm sure they're making the murder guy might have actually guilty whatever his name was steven ever yeah yeah probably allegedly allegedly guilty but i think this one is obviously a little bit. Were way more murky than that so i'm very interested. Watch this well yeah i. I'm right there there with you. I i think the cast is great. <hes> d- <hes> destin daniel cretin is is the director and he what else what is he don he's doing. I think she is doing change. That's right boom little like preview there. Yes so i'm immortal. I'm excited his because he's done before. Have you guys seen the glad the glass castle or shirt turn short term twelve short-term twelve albums very brie larson. That's free larson movie yet yeah. I'm thinking i'm thinking the director. I'm you know i i haven't seen those but i'm very interested interested in seeing what just mercy is all about based on not only the cast but also leaked leading into shank chee not to make it all about comic book movies because god knows we do that all the time but you know that's the curiosity of me no but that i mean michael b jordan he's coming off fantastic four cre- to black panther i mean like just all these major big popcorn movies and he's hopping this kind of going to be interesting because he's a totally different reason to yeah like like he's a totally different person now than he was before he did all this in two thousand fifteen which are funny because he did fruitvale station which was smaller and then he does creed and he rolls into the big things and now a little little no more with oscar winner and and jamie fox and i think michael jordan has a chop to do something with both been doing it to black panther himself can have been twenty one bridges from the russo brothers others still sorta come next year but this this looks pretty good and anything relating to short-term twelve american short control is very him okay so from strippers something serious or something that i mean. This looks fucking terrible. This is awful checkout. Adam devine in the righteous gemstones very funny new movie called jesse. I think as i say it's a it's a seri- slash alexa based comedy to comedy where the phone now does read just read the man. I closed a week a pedia page here jesse synopsis. Let's see a man's new cell phone turns into a technological nightmare when the artificial intelligence program becomes obsessed with him starts talking shit to his boss falls like kinda like falls for the guy like but also giving him like critiques looks fat looks like shit alexandra ships in this ron funchess kid cutty. Michael pena rose byrne adam devine in the lead role. This looks abysmal scene scene of michael painter. There are like some sort of makeshift buzzfeed and they're making. They're making break the internet jokes. You can't be making break. The internet journal nineteen mr moment. I mean that just does simply does not play play anymore. I mean i don't know man. I don't want to get fired from the company for saying this but i've just i've never been a pig adam. Devine guy he worked for dave need wedding dates. We're so so far past that our work here and then we came out. I just don't know what what stands in what does i wasn't workaholics guy to ask that yeah yeah. He really didn't do it. I don't know pitch perfect. I don't know i'm not a huge fan so i i kind of agree with you. I don't know if i'm in on this on this. I do like the sort of cast members volvo chance dance. What's that lula's remember remembered sucked pizza one the pizza on yeah yeah. I remember nine shop. Yes sir pizza shop. Let's go that show <hes> yeah. I don't know i like the cast. It's just the trailer shit. I'm out. I adam devine. I liked workaholics. I think even kind of i didn't hate that net afflicts movie. That was really stupid. What was what was that something like that yeah and then he's in the righteous gemstones of course but it's not him. It's not this cast. I i just don't like the whole <hes> falling in love with your a. I. comedy because the that's they made that work in a drama. They made that work with her. That's that's way more interesting than a kiss this. This reminds me like a like the jokes that are going to be made in this movie you probably of like boomer facebook jokes facebook posts like <hes> you know whenever i asked syria to give me directions directions she she doesn't want to because i'm such a bad driver and it's a picture of the minions and think about how dated this movie will be in like a year or two or three years. Yeah i mean they're making fucking break. The internet jokes i. I'm pretty sure trill you made a skit talked about one related to something like this anyway back and we talked about different cinematic universe ironically when we talked about childhood game cinemax universities and we're doing the hide and seek movie today but i feel like we've talked about this before series. Oh no. I thought i thought about how you can't break the internet anymore. Oh no that that is not. It's not possible to break the internet. Now everything stupid has happened. Already needs won't happen parody through the term away also the people doing this movie by the way they directed twenty one and over bad moms and a. bad mom's christmas writers on chicken. Little wedding crashers not bad for christmas ghosts of girlfriends past the hangover. They're actually nominated for best original screenplay hangover part to change up so scott more. John lucas two more things here here it chandler to what are you guys. Are you guys bad mom's guys because i am a bad guy. Memo's crispus sucked no no just bad moms yeah. What about the extended bad <hes> franchise a. bad mom's versus bad teacher versus bad santa where would wrangle bats because i would probably have to go bad santa bad teacher bad mom's even though i love the bad mom bad mom bad santa for me is one of the greatest comedies ever. Oh yeah bagger <unk>. Oh ooh lord of the universe thought pay attention was really good too. I i liked that. I liked justin. Timberlake's like pathetic little character so bad. Grandpa was the johnny knoxville one dirty grandpa. Yes zero dirty deniro with zeca zoey deutch dirty grandpa was yeah and in bad grandpa was the one where he plays which actually wasn't bad bagger with not terrible for it was the jackass movies what they are. They're they're good. Now has moved also jackass three fucking fantastic. I think jackass three d was the first rated r. movie that i saw in the theater with like my mom my mom through my throat dildos at you in that movie. I don't remember it was them doing the toilet. Porta potty type thing i think right with eight catapulted a porta potty up and down record. That's the one that actually that one in i saw that when i was at penn state and state college and this one theater there were electronic three d glasses they like turned on a battery and they if they flicker they would make your eyes like kind of hurt and someone in front of screamed in the middle of the movie and it was because there is like a dilated and we were like oh shit would happen like on my glasses twenty ten hours to get jackass to all other great mindless entertainment. There's nothing wrong with it. However action point one of the most movies stunk the death kroll roll or whatever hidden shit. It's trying to replicate the magic you can't do it. The jackass is a product of the time. Remember wild boys chris pontius into <hes> stevo boys. I like more than even jackass. I didn't like as much as i gotta have the whole gang there. I felt like all the jackass derivatives were weren't as good as jackass while boys and then bam our jara's. We have a beaver dam almo said obama fuck factory uh-huh shit show what the fuck factory. I like people bam booking drawbridge around the house. I know some people didn't like it. Though i well the wild boys interesting uh-huh sticks out in my head need a really cool just incher with shows like the greenwich clips of them and their trainer with animals and shit and then the globe while boys middle school me it was like this is the coolest shit i've ever ever seen a mind tireless. Oh yeah oh for sure. That's why people have banned. It was just people acting a fool and then like eastern pennsylvania. Go into your guidance counselor. You're like a a mist mister smith. I wanna be a wild boy. I don't care what it takes to do. A you know if stevo wants to put clothes pins so my scrotum and attach heels to it. I'm i'm fine fuck game. I'm a wild boy. I think it was like westchester p._a. By the way speaking of <music> action park did you know that action point whatever it's based on a real theme park yeah i did know that i i the theme documentaries you watch on youtube fucked up late so real thing that wasn't it could have been good but it was so bad. I'm not gonna say it could have been good but it could have been decent better. They had like an upside down water slide. When people hit the top they there wasn't enough force. The throne through through just crashed down top point. It was fucked up. People died at that park. I bet that's that's one of those things. That did the document the true life. Life is way more interesting than the fictional dramatic of it. <hes> just just give me the documentary yeah exactly gritty documentary like that better in chapter. Two reviews out movie comes out reviewed it next week. I think answers reviewing it. It started out at eighty five percent around tomatoes down to seventy. One fifty nine on metacritic still very excited to see this movie chapter. Two proves bigger doesn't always mean scarier for horse equals but a fine cast unfaithful to the source material. Keep this follow up of flow. I don't know i kind of like the closing coming of age story. That's how i view. Maybe that's wrong. Maybe i made the wrong way to view it but i'm excited to see we're going to be seeing it today. This comes out or whenever this we're seeing thursday of dave release in an i max i like these reviews aren't like deterring me all that much though it is long that's the one thing people are like. It's a little long. It drags at two forty something <hes> <hes>. Where does this place do you with a movie that you've frequently said you don't care about now care about. I care about this movie part of me. I wonder how scary they're trying to bake it. I i it's hard to get as scary is the i it was. It was pretty frightening <hes> but it it seems like you'd think with like kid actors and just based off of fears in how much fear plays into childhood you just wonder if just by virtue them being adults and us already seeing you'll full views of the clown the clown makeup which you know standard horror or movies can keep those obscured until the last twenty five percent of the movie just it it all automatically loses how the the ceiling of how it was scary. It could possibly be that being said like i don't like. I don't have much expectation for out scary. This is i'm. I'm just more interested in the characters now that they're an adult so what are they gonna do in dairy <hes> find out i mean that the pardon the trailer and the houses with the mirrors if that's the kids like that's more scarier right like that's you're. You're probably yeah i think so. I don't know i i. I did see the first and dishes like i i love. I should say what i really enjoy the original part one part two for sure and do you guys like scars guards. <hes> portrayal of the clown points very good at some points a little i do. I think the original i think tim carey wants scarier so much scarier. I couldn't agree more because it's like shoddy. It's like the dollar store version of the new one one but betting that's what makes it scarier. It's just like i always liken how scary it is to when i would go to blockbuster as a kid and i would walk past a little bit. I like horror movies. I would walk past the it and i'd be like that sucks. That's horrifying. I hate clowns. It's like that always scared me. This clown is is creepiest creepiest faulk and like they did a great job with it but something about that clown scarier clown it is i. I really think so. The gyroscopic stable clown dance was the scariest part of the bill skarsgard <hes> iterative whenever you want to call it <hes> i think i wasn't as high on the first movie movie as they were so not still not as excited especially because there are just a little bit middling. I would say <hes>. I don't think mistakes opening day. I'm gonna see this in a couple of after probably not a non rush to see this with everybody else. I'd love to hear tim curry. Do his lines are home alone. Two atom like going some of your stolen credit card. I love of that as pennywise and i really i really like it and as you know the second one was not very good at what's the worst part of the second one for you. I mean louis spider gotta be. Maybe they're spiders really bad. Maybe i don't know the fortune cookies exploding. There's whether it it is whether it is it or another movie. Exploding fortune cookies always going to be pretty bad. I was hit always always always going to be a spider again. It's the story yeah. We'll find out. I don't know i'm excited. I'm are we going to see the turtle and space because obviously all stephen king's movies are set on a fucking turtle in space uh-huh or at least it is he said this space turtle. I'm a sucker for this is right up. My alley like i'll be there hopefully opening weekend. Well your big sequel guy right. Huge huge sequel guy huge horror movie guy. I was the first movie i was super excited for and i don't know i know it's it's wrong because these movies have nothing to do with the ones that came out. I think it was nineteen ninety ninety but it's still in my head that this is the second one is going to come nowhere near because the first one was so good too because it wasn't even the the clown had made it so good it was i i mean the kids just on the bicycles and stand by me vibes with a stranger things kind of thing it was it was it was good. I really enjoy well. That's trills thing kids some bikes. If you've got kids in a movie that got on bikes gotta gotta have them riding on bikes thing everybody can relate to for the most universal kids thing. Here's another. Did you see the new tomb raider with publicity candor. I didn't i mean angelina jolie. She's just she's my tomb raider sequel to angelina angelina jolie one. She had two of these well whatever the second video game cinematic but it should well. There's gonna be vehicle. The tomb raider the new one coming on twenty twenty one. Let's see if we can there. We reviewed it two years ago last year last year. Maybe i forgot when this movie came. Out is definitely not this year is twenty started twenty eighteen. Yeah i started two thousand eighteen march twenty eighteen. You do anything to do anything you can jack new tomb raider burgers and terrible it just wasn't amazing knock enough to warrant a sequel i would say it was very very very middling in average and i love at least for candor and i think she could make a very good to meet her. Maybe that's something that could work out in the sequel so like it left a zero impression freshen the movies so if they have a chance to make it better. I'm all for it but as it stands. I'm not interested. It needed like a hundred more million dollars on that budget they they didn't i mean or maybe just figure out a better way to make the movie feel more expansive with one hundred million dollars two hundred a billion dollars and maybe it didn't feel epic enough. You know like it just i want. I want i want more tombs being rated to murder want certain hedge giving a high five to god's two minutes. Could you imagine dude. They're like mr pollens during the movie podcast. What can we do to make this. One better spent one hundred million alien more dollars <hes> we should have thought yeah okay just create a complete gold replica of the legends of the hidden temple set had her do it get olmec and there have have gary sinise play omega big if you're actually yea old matt even hide pearson. Here's a guy the guy who voices three three word name. I very i honestly won't bring up top my head right but it's a guy he voiced olmec and legends the hidden temple. Also captain rex in the clone wars and star wars rebels a bunch of voice remember. He's a legend he's in. There's a there's a voice over. I know that voice. It's a documentary we're doing best. Docs now might be on the air bradley yeah and he did taunted ninety seven throats folks last. He space jam space jam beyond anyone's list later. We'll see not me totally make would boss the fucking door like the kool aid man and beat the shit out. Oh can i free space jam on my journey. Yes absolutely the list here so arbitrary and creative. I wanna get into something though trill started the trend a few weeks ago. It's part of i would say the the running gag l._c._d. Hall of fame of howard stern impressions which none of us can do well and you told us tonight that you worked for howard i did. I interned there in two thousand fifteen. I was from three and a half months four months and i was in the stern h._q. So i can't do a great impression our but you know i know what he says i have to like i was part of my job is to listen to tapes of him from like nine hundred ninety two and transcribe driving chip we know what he says to in the most rudimentary way and that we just i'm not saying i mean he definitely his signature thing. It's not a secret that he's he's like you know you. You've done it all right or you. Set it off yeah. You've said it all he said it all but i also feel like like whatever people come in and he's like wow let me get a look at your uh-huh there. She is like that's that's a robin. That's the big robin one there. She loves that yeah. You know howard is just like what are we gonna stay robin. It's <hes> it's more of a an interview show. Then you know the raunchy funhouse show that it was the war went to the radio. We say the same you get another look. None of us can do compression. Would you sound like kermit and you try to look at you like when we try to actually like do an impression of howard stern we just end up sounding like kermit. Inquiry just can't really do it. Can you turn around you know. Let me see your dress. Trillion got one shouli jesus christ. It's an incredibly hard impression is such a unique voice is on the news w w. j._f._k. Like he gets really deep <hes> n._b._c. Did you enter that was sorry troch. Vomit the talent yes. Did he like doing that <hes>. I don't know if i don't i don't know i met him twice. It's like hey how you doin'. Thanks for the picture see later you know <hes> but i i mean i think he liked it because he was in front of an audience that he probably elite never had at one point. You know like that was that was on big. What was i see n._b._c. yeah so it was on n._b._c. and he's like you know talking to me. I haven't even shippers on and shit compared to like that front of like moms and i. It was probably like just way different for sure. Did i know he didn't like how it ended up. Sure probably wieniawski. Let's get tan mom here on the c._b._s. Buca let's see what happens. The minority stake in the company at this point. I don't know if he does so. I went to the closet. Actually gather like go. Uh kobe go get this from the closet. Whatever and i opened up the closet all the boozers in there and they were supposed to be random sex toys and right in the corner was the sicilian beijing collecting dust. It was one of the saddest sights ever. Have you seen the the thing that gives us here now and then we're we're like he has people. Try really uncomfortable things then pregnancy simile simulator liquor alcohol and all that but i want him to do this like bringing the one yeah. Let's give it a shot see what happens. I mean all right. I'll be the only one the right. I just want to see what happens. I've heard i know well. Why do you think i want to try it. The the the one of the best things the best videos out there is when he gets the guy who created the symbian tacoma any interviews him and and he does like a tutorial on how to use it so weird. I mean dude. He is carmen electra on that day yeah he did. I mean that was like one of the first clips of stern ethic i've ever scene. That's crazy to think about that any other stirring questions i earned on the that's that's that's definitely oh yeah definitely a saying gardner. Let me get a look at you alison. No no no. That's been my ars stole. Forget c._b. And her we'll never know fuck hair by the way she suck. You met her at jimmy. No was a piece of shit just a not nice person to sit among not a nice person first of all like not a good person like she got cancelled like picked. It's not even like how come on. She's just making jokes like she got cancelled like. Are you surprised bad. No bad person she just fucking route is shit. Everybody and that is rather rare. Jiemin like people even the grumpiest celeb- who you heard the worst thing about they would still get up in the morning and they come in and they for the most burpee nice. She was one of the top five meanest people to actually walk through the doors at hey nobody cared who she was for as you put on the mask and she's had a chip on their shoulder the rest of the way you hate to see it there'd be we could stern show story swaps. I like to call in for like five minutes at a show and just we'll swapan just just like when end in one time <hes> matt damon made me put splendor and his orange. It's kinda weird. He likes extra sweet tweet. This time like stormy daniels deep on stern show. It was sick manual beat my manual yeah i didn't. I didn't want to say anything to be but after so i was just happens now. Let's get into our movie and that is ready. You're you're not going to be reviewing ready or not today. As we dropped couple of weeks ago <hes> august twenty first just kind of catching up getting around the review and let me just before you get into that. Eh me do a quick quick ahead of what we're going to be reviewing here on a lights camera barstool next week it chapter to pump for that then the goldfinch you're saying it's really good but we'll see after that astern rambo pulse vote on aww coley mcgahn for super size to holy chicken. Is that actually coming out yet you get that. Do you get the joke holy chicken. You can say no no no yeah. It's like holy cow but instead it totally chicken so it's like the reverse psychology is not funny as what it is yeah yeah. He was the guy that metoo himself right he did he acted being cancelled and then he never apologized he sucks any also made supersized new which sucks like super size me now. Why dessert can you go by super size fries mcdonald's right now well. Thanks so his time he could though he he eliminated covered the biggie the grand big fault. That's gone here mad at him. For getting rid of the super size are big montana gone yumbo at burger king also going the the deep sea and double is still alive and well at long john silver's matters through lunch and silvers has lobster rolls nowadays they do apparently have good chicken tenders our not doubt that yeah. It's like people are like yeah. You wouldn't think every time you see a chicken tenders ranking people go. You wouldn't think this which is such a burn at dan going chicken tenders fish places sometimes do because you get that you get that a funnel cake like breading on the chicken. Sometimes it works sometimes. It doesn't if if you think you can make fast food fast food fish at a rate where you're not getting restaurants constantly shut down for like violations. You could probably make almost anything else relatively well so tenders. I'd very much believe we're gonna be doing joker. Jim and i man than zombie to judge rabbit and then ten minutes congressperson willis which ten minutes go with bruce willis pregnant a pair up with excuse me the a fanatic with john travolta which didn't release this week. We're going to review it but he's not. I don't know it was in one movie theater in new york. I saw yeah one showing to take a one shot deal. The travolta fans were out in droves. I mean this is the second one. I just happened to him now with didn't push back but then caught he got. He just got shit on just dumped on everybody got. He got a lot of exposure from though so i think more people ended up seeing god because of how terrible it was than anything. I don't think i think this one's just supposed bad back straight up. I like the promise promise. I mean like cycle fan like soccer. Shit yeah like you ever read like david letterman stalker <hes> oh yeah yeah. It's like super interest. I don't know it's just it's it's crazy. Dave letterman star of the letterman show kevin between two ferns the movie. We like doing that look. We quiz our guest at the end of the pot on late night show. That's like three stalkers. Get arrested a week. I think someone just broke into taylor swift's apartment and took off his shoes was on her bed or something like letterman like ended up like having major compassion i it was a weird like he ended up like heaven.

Now has an eighty seven percent critics around tomatoes which an average of some point to a ten seventy nine percent audience score and then a sixty three on metacritic. It's it's doing. I would say okay compared to its budget six million dollar budget thirty one point nine million dollar box office. <hes> ready or not was distributed by. Do you know do you know a disney disney to fox searchlight pictures meaning. It was distributed by walt disney zinni company. I did not see any of the people from expressing. It is a very bloody dark comedy horror movie. I i quite enjoyed this. I have my issues with it and has some questions i wanna kinda. Threat ear because overall is the most important thing it's creative. It's unique. It's different aren't and it's fresh and i think that's the most important thing and that's why. I think it's something that if you have time they'll see something off you see it or if you don't wanna see i would go see this. It's a good time not really is. It has its issues. We'll get into in a second. I gave it an eighty two out of one hundred. I quite a quite enjoyed this movie and i- horror man it took me my big question question at the end of this review is why does horse seemed to be nailing the most original content right now. Whether it's good or bad is irrelevant to the question. Horror seems to be doing the most host with original ideas and i think i have my theory. We'll get into it. I gave it an eighty two out of one hundred. What about you eddie. I kind of probably the plus range. Now you know you great things on twitter united not at zero to ten right. I also want to give i wanted to import from the movie boys here i i i used to like kind of like the portnoy pizza review standard seven point point seven whatever then i recently changed to letter grades but someone brought to my attention like sometimes you get letter grades that don't that are the same for movies and they shouldn't like it yeah. That's why the the points were essentially our system just points. Yes band it out. I mean i. I like doing this year two hundred because you can differentiate at the top so yeah hit ours w._f._a._n. Bearnaise a._f._c. plus though yeah yeah somewhere in the sixties. I'd say but i don't know <hes> do you. Do you re going around like do you want to go over. Given the thoughts talked yeah yeah so. Did you ever see the show smith smith noah samara weaving was in that and then she played this really annoying chick with an accent and it was she drove me nuts in the shell and i saw it took me a while to warm up tour okay but in the end i thought she was pretty damn good few she was in the leader. I forgot to mention and she was. She was the best part of the movie yeah she was. She was pretty damn good and it was like legitimately like i hated her at the beginning just because if the beginning you know i really needed more aw i don't want to say a rush into it because i do appreciate when it gets into the action semi quick but i need more cult shit at the beginning you know like i needed to see how i wanted them to say like off the top like something. Really you know we didn't get that. We just had the aunts who was in the room at our kobe going spoiler. We're totally spoiler. Okay okay so that was like you know the aunt who is in the room when they were kissing or whatever and then it was just kind of jumped right into the game and the wedding day and i don't know that was <hes> those couple of big conduct i would say i ended up giving today's seventy five out of one hundred. I think that my big complaint with it probably is that <hes> it's sorta has an a action action horror comedy. I guess is the john right and i think that they didn't get their correct blend of horror and comedy like you really need to nail that to make a really good movie aliens a little more on comedy. I don't yeah the comedy doesn't work which is a problem and i don't think they found that proper balance which is where it fails but samara weaving like you were saying killed it. I think the movie really hit stride as it got further in the first half of it was definitely a bit of a drag but overall stylistically cool a little bit scary little bit funny not horrible movie. I agree with the beginning part because i feel it works and you get it and i'm glad they just go right into quick moving ninety five five minutes to taste very well but i i think establishing because they kind of explained the rules of why what happens and what led them into it you know it's basically like signing a deal with the devil essentially <hes> and they have just keep the killers person blah blah blah and you learn it which is great but like a little back story helps not like overly unnecessary baxter make no three hours long a little extended a bit to kind of like set the tone and listen rich. People are fucking weird. Everybody knows that weird shit gimme gimme something weird like let me there were so many things that could have done in that creepy as mentioned that could have been like i believe this this is it and they really didn't do that to kick it off the bat so i i was really disappointed in that. I guess it do monopoly board game families. We got money like this. I don't know any boardgames dynasty families in real life. What did you true. Maybe just maybe this deep money. Maybe you don't know who they are where they are like you know the the the the bradley family the milton bradley dynasty collude dynasty the part the parker brothers and sisters. The parties have a mansion in hollywood hills excellent interesting really would i completely. I totally believe that one hundred percent the party chinese checkers family. It's hyphenated name jenga tower. We are dynasty. I thought it was good. I thought it was seventy five. I it's it's weird because like i i liked the way a the kind of some of the bloodier elements of the movie were offset with like attempts at humor. I don't know if they always kind of <hes>. I don't know if they always hit i i do. I do agree with eddie. I don't think maybe i'm putting words in his mouth but i don't know if they went far enough on like the whole class thing thing. I think they could have just made it a little more clever. In that aspect i mean do you agree or disagree like just in terms of them being big a weirdos tos yeah it was. I liked it. They went a little further with the class thing then like the last purge movie with a convert like like the purge uh-huh man they class warfare. That's the purge. This may talk about class but it was a little more creative. I i can see what you're getting at there. Well i think it's it's like trying in to strike a balance between the purge and this without going over the top. What was that movie that got canceled again then then they can do to the balance the hunt the hunter the hunt yeah i mean that's another one that at assuming from the trailer had a similar message and i think it's a message that resonates right now i mean it certainly provides for like just in the context of the horde genre like <hes> a reason for a boredom with life that may be leads to a general sociopath the that leads into making deals with the devil that leads into murder. I don't know but i i also don't think the movie was intended to be analyzed as hard as i'm trying to analyze it so at face value was <hes> very stylistic very fun to watch very solid performances. <hes> it was nice to see andie macdowell and yes adam brody. I feel i i. I haven't seen adam brody in anything in we sampled yeah all all five minutes like not like not like really really in it but the only movie i can really tell you adam brody's definitely in is mr mrs mr mrs smith and he's not even like the main role net by any else no but the remember him being mr mrs smith but i thought this one was good. I think it's really impressive what they did with it given the budget. They had <hes> that being said. There's definitely going to be a sequel. Just keep this going but this one is a movie is fine. It's good seventy. Five thousand not blown house. Movie was the thing i thought this blunt house vibes renault up and down. Oh oh my god and so that kinda gets into my question is are people are people starting to rip off the blame somehow spy but a little bit you think formula yeah it would make sense. I mean like it's an easy formula. I don't know if it's so easy and execution but also so the blunt house vibe it can be so wide in terms of definition because so many other movies covers so many grounds but just in terms of would just say in general enroll. The digital vibe is a low budget horror movie with some sort of light to heavy societal commentary dark humor in violence and i i think this had all of that and it did seem very blunt house but like you gotta wonder now like this. These are the movies to make. Thank going into two this year to say like well. You know marvel's got especially after the summer. That's just happened where it seems like a lot of these big. Movies didn't go over to well unless they were you know marvel at they're just saying well food. Just get these small returns from these tiny little movies if the r. the x. men dark phoenix origins isn't working anymore. You're a whore guyana like you. The blood house movies which are typically you know by <music> explaining like lower budget. Turn a big profit. Maybe not always good and maybe that's what i mean. 'cause you right off the bat. You knew this was going to be decent because it was searchlight and they pump the shit out of it. Yeah i would say like this was another one there. You saw the trailer so many times before he finally saw the movie but i don't know is that like is that what you're gonna do a search they are. They going to turn it into their house. It'd be smart in would be smart. I don't know if they will right because they've even tried to censor a little bit with joe rabbit no like they were saying that this is behind the scenes gene stuff which might be totally untrue entirely but they were rumors that with joe giradi disney was kind of like a let's make sure the tone get a little bit too heavy or like lenny towards language graduating like that so i don't know if we will just for brand integrity but they should i think though like just from seeing this comparing it to what like capela would gioja rabbit th th they had no qualms about releasing this and then you know it wasn't exactly you know p._g. Movie it was pretty pretty gory some parts <hes> <hes> i think joe joe rabbit was more so just about the the the nazi thing for sure yeah yeah and so like you know that that's kind of its own special exception. I can see see them churning out like slasher movies if that's what they can do as long as it doesn't have any like over ties to they don't show up for the movie yeah yeah or like or just stay away from general i i mean i guess what i'm trying to say is like this makes it apparent to me just by virtue of being released through disney but that their issue with censoring movies more so in like i guess the references to historical in a <hes> societal events and not necessarily like pure violence by itself. Do you think that's going to happen like they're obviously to nazi thing it makes sense but overall you think think they could have just said that's. We bought them but like hey we. They do their own thing. You don't him yet. No i agree with you. I mean i think they've disney's released me. Disney's been evolving all the you know that we talked about it. They've waited this. I don't think they released like super violent stuff. They have released movies that have been you know allred movies. I think i think what happened with joe. Rabbit like either that story was i mean okay so either israel which it could have been which i know. It's not a hot take saying that that could really happened and or it was an overblown story planted by disney to kind of shoot out a a flare gun to test reception to or even just kind of say a like okay this movie's releasing but we're not completely on board with it because we're disney or is just a completely made up story to your point. It could be very true. I think i i don't think we talked about that. Honestly just be what happened. That can see them. I can see them saying like something like this comes out then they plant this story and again. We're on their payroll so i don't mean by the hand that feeds yeah. They know they've made this. We get paid on the side but actually we got a call from bob is here. He's like chill out in the fucking. Joker spreads rumors on the rumor block. People are finally starting to figure out there were disney schillt's. That's why fucking trill over. There has got got those disney. Posters broadcasting live from the castle. I do think it's an interesting concept. Though does disney make it. There does like make it their own type but blow mouse things because they are going to kind of reshape that they said they weren't but they definitely cancelled a shitload fox project. So how are they gonna. Do they make those lower budget movies which i would like the do that. At least it's original stuff. This is not only be clear. This is not their idea. This isn't come from the disney brain but the milan movies like this. I'm fine with because it is unique right right now. I like the way the and if you didn't see the movie the story plays out that like they have this deal where you have to kill this person to sacrifice to stay rich right to the continued continued to be like this rich family that they are and if they don't they die like they're they don't. They're not alive anymore which they do test at the end they they kind of captured the the leading senator back and forth she runs away. They captured. She runs away. They captured in the end. They finally got a chance to kill her in the sun goes up and and it's too late and they fucking exploit crazy and explode yeah like i dunno border throughout the whole movie. I was like i was i'd like that. They didn't try to be too funny. I thought like they bordered along. Okay like are there really. Is it really going to happen like what kind of movie is and like. I said it's not a movie made for you to over think it yeah it would free to sit there for ninety minutes and kinda just enjoy and then right at the i._r._s. Saw them explorers ago okay. That's what that's what we got into. It was fine. It was fine like it was it was it was okay. My my biggest issue with the movie i thought was the alex character. The character that mary's some are weavings character grace right yeah. I thought that that was the part of the movie. I didn't love his character seemed a little too like hokey his change of zone chain yeah and like how he wanted to save her then he didn't if i didn't love that like his character really feel his character felt there just to service moving the the story along as opposed to part of the story right like it just felt like he i know he changed members over die and whatnot and i get that i get that like in the end everyone had to die. It wouldn't have fell right had he lived had like she's forgiven him but it just felt such a far departure from him in the beginning when he's going to sabree like this is such an entrenched thing with the family if they know if they don't do it there lives are over like things are going to change forever so that's a pretty big fucking thing to say like no. Oh on saving you change f- way through. I love that character that held back quite a bit for me. There was a little bit of that with a lot of them but since his yeah go ahead i mean that was just kind of like the manufactured twist right. Yeah exactly it is the extent. The twist works in a sense like i get it but i thought it just i it was it just felt kind of inorganic like they had to be done as opposed to it played out naturally also a lot of maids this movie it's just attack on maids aids and they tease to like the back forget what exactly they called. It and i don't want to speak on a line but what was it the the the doors that lead out to the underground whatever you know and and like i think she uses it in the first scene where she was escaping. That never came back into play yet. We're kind of like a big moment with the the actual character the husband or ah yeah at this point husband but i think that we all kind of expected it to be a long play right like a whole tarmac right now clearly. He's doing this some sort of boy. He's against her the entire time and and then i guess i'm almost happy. They didn't do what i expected in the case like he was actually trying to save the entire time until that point but i just think that transition was kind of late. I mean like i kind of stock. It's like what do you call it. It's the transition just being like what am i done darth vader. I thought he was going to be like the guy behind it or something or he's the one that set sent the game exactly it just it didn't feel it's not what i expected and i didn't love how that played out otherwise i mean look. There's it's not perfect act right like it's not a perfect blend of horror comedy but there's enough that makes them work. It's a very fun movie. Things are kind of throw it off a touch. The comedy undercuts the spencer points right because they could. That'd be like super suspenseful. I got an appointment really is but i think sometimes the comedy lines the undercut that and it's not worth it like that pale is worth if you're going to do it make sure that joe has a good payoff off. Did you see the twist coming like which one him so turning on her yeah yeah i'm saying i didn't see coming which i liked but i just yeah like the actual like i like the active not being what i expected. I just don't like their version of it. Yeah i don't know like i don't know why it made me think of get out just because it's a family or whatever but like you know with allison williams characters like you knew that twist was coming <hes> but it was the way it happened that made that so acceptable and cool as a viewer and with this one that i mean and i i don't know like i i wanna compare it to get out because i it just you know it's not but it <hes> you know it. It did its job. This movie was efficient. Okay like that. That's that's the highest praise give to it both in run time and the story it was going to tell and what it set out to do and how much money they spent on it. It was a very efficient movie for all things considered my last nice kind of problem with it too was there was too many characters. There was a lot. There's a lot of names to remember throughout right. They cut it like that like the chubbier brother. <hes> brother-in-law is like you know you know what i mean like. He seemed really funny like he could have had their trailers made. It seem a little bit of a better role but there were so many yep uh-huh name to like <hes>. I don't know there was a drunk <hes> sister sister-in-law than there was the one who is enthralled with the game. She loved it. Happy happy. She was in the family then. There's any mcdonald's doors up the crazy aunt there was so many characters yes. There's a lot to keep up with a lot of fucking mates. The question i came out with it is like what is the perfect blend for a horror comedy like for me like my favorite horror comedy. I think is <hes> what we do in shadows which is actually not tying back to talking about before and like so. I don't know what the perfect eric blended but i think i think what we do in the shadows did it right and they were like ninety ten. <hes> comedy horror and i don't know if that makes perfect but that to me is the best horror comedy movies so well yeah. I mean it's satire synagogue yeah. It depends like i think something like what we do. In the shadows takes it takes a concept like a vampire in makes it less threatening just by virtue of like you know being ino- we know like i don't know how to describe. It makes it funnier because they're all weirdos right like they're. They're all just like petty weirdos or one to describe it. Yes yes exactly like us. Something like this. I think you know like i don't know where the comedy he comes from but like it's it's it's different like 'cause 'cause i think when when whenever you do have something that maybe like alludes back to <hes> societal oh commentary you may have more leeway for humor but it it is hard to answer your question because i don't think there's a perfect balance for dark comedy or comedy in horror movies that can be explained without having a genius or somebody who's very intelligent right. So what would you consider scream or a horror comedy yeah. The blend was like. I don't even know how i would try to quantify in next that also did it very well. We'll scream was i feel. I felt like i said meta like many times like scream was like a it was almost a deconstruction of the genera <hes> which like right now seems seems like something you'd get every other movie but i think in nineteen ninety six or nineteen ninety seven when it came out. It was really clever. I think the blend there came from just that being a fresh a fresh concept to a mainstream audience when that was released a lot funnier than the other ones to pry. I don't know exactly who directed that one but it was a different tone for sure for we actually had so who do you have in from screaming. We had <hes> fucking what's his name <hes> david arquette ca- yeah we had talked about screaming another too but we haven't heard the interview that oh yeah we're not gonna area. We're saving. Did you talk about ready to rumble. Saving for a rainy talked about eight legged freaks. Don't talk about ready to rumble. I don't remember i if we talk about eight legged freaks. I think we mentioned. I'm not sure but it was good. It was an interesting interview with david are correct. What's it like was cramps in that category of horror-com. I would say so. I would say yes. I liked grandpa did you. Did you craft solid. I i hate it cog or you out to be the authority on christmas movies. Since most i feel are senate chicago. I don't think so. I feel like more so teen movies. The john hughes giancana's yes breakfast. I just actually did a dog walk with concert about. Oh yeah just straight down john. He's your big. He'd he'd be like almost everything that one town right. L. lewis told me about it like almost everything stone. Whatever northbrook yeah yeah in that suburb so that's good that's crazy. Janis guy another question. I kind of want to branch off that with horror is about what i mentioned before is that why does seem to be cornering the market on the most original is it because they have that ability that others don't well you can make a movie movie about fucking hide and seek make scare you can make you can make almost anything into horror now. Not everything works but if done right it but like could you make a hide and seek action should movie good. I don't think that tag yeah very original tags. Probably the closest you're going to get to hide didn't seek action comedy. I think the problem is right like horror you. They re. Just don't give a fuck when they're making harmless like we know we're going to get a return on this. No matter what the movies we don't have to spend any more than like ten mm fifteen million dollars but like with any other original constantly. If you're gonna make an original action movie if you're gonna make an original fucking suspense movie you need to worry so much about that financial return and like if if you can't make your money back then you're not gonna get financing you could really put together a shit cast of nobody's with like a very sub tier original concept for horror movie and make your money back east which i think is kind of the difference with that john compared to any other genre and it sorta. Why is a very personal opinion thing but i was found that with horror. It's the super top-heavy genre you were. I think like the top ten percent are really really cerebal like very good movies and then everything else other ninety percent are very bad and i don't think there's a lot of middle ground there except check this being a big exception but i feel a lot of that. Ten percent has been recent. It's there's been a lot of good recent. Move a lot recently for sure i think i i think a lot of it is just this is inherent ability to to do more with the suspension of disbelief like an in the framework of a horribly <hes> and we'll get the giants right yeah like like especially since horror genre has has always been like a wink wink wake the rules of reality. Don't really early apply here. You know just with basic movie lodge logic of like you know people not being able to outrun the killer even though they walk it like one mile an hour or or or <hes> you know people not knowing the killers right behind them despite breathing heavily so i i think like going into a horror movie you kind of have like lower expectations around like the realism that's presented which may be allows for like less of a <hes> less of a critical island lake diving into some of the concepts but ah i don't know like i think some of it too is a function of just. Maybe it's easier to get your idea green lit with six million dollars as or movie like you're saying <hes> yeah i mean that could not even could that probably is it but it is pretty crazy that like for everything people talk about and like i mean you're a sequels guy we are to them. All we gobble it up but people complain about the original stuff and horse kind of putting on the show right now whether it's good or not and that's my my thing if it's original that unique for the most part i'm going to commit and giant pilot shit and it's like stick serenity dad boat movie with matthew. We know that they need a sequel that was moving into a level or like ashfaq but most everything else i'm going to. I'm going to accept with pretty much open arms yes. I think that like you said in your question yes. I think that's it like they they don't have there's not a barrier there that they can't cross because of you know people are afraid that if it's all well it'd be real or not and i don't know it's just i don't know if there's lines up to why they're doing so well or not but i mean true. Crime is fucking exploded. You know people like to kind of be creep down be scared and i think that's also kind of health genre yeah. I do think there's maybe a cultural fascination with just the and death. I mean there's always been in every culture but especially like right now. At this moment like you can't deny that all the all the top podcasts are like <hes> the murder files from john h murder ten fucking marilyn monroe one which by the way there's a true crime category. Get the fuck out of the tv film category podcasts talking up. That's horse shit in the last thing. I'll say about ready or not. It's what i like about. A movie like business movie is maybe they'll make a sequel so they don't make a sequel. I'll probably never think about this movie and that's fine. It's it's okay like if i see it. I'll say i'll enjoy it but you know for what it is. It doesn't require a huge emotional commitment to like you know. It's not something you're going to actively be a fan of. It's it's for right now. At the current moment it's very entertaining one off and <hes> again a time where everything is interconnected connected franchise and look. We're huge hypocrites because we love that shit to like. We'll talk about the mandatory for forty five minutes but it is nice to watch one of these movies. That's just ninety. Ninety minute movie that that is is fun to watch and <hes> is is creepy and some aspects and has good performances in very stylish. I wish and then to also like not like invested in it after you watch it leaving. I think the best thing about a movie that we don't get invested in with movie like this anyways. It's only ninety five minutes. We didn't lose a lot of time with the irish have to wait three hours to fucking three and a half hours to right. If i'm going to go to my timer not you're gonna get us in trouble yeah. It's just the fact the less investment you have to put into a movie. I feel like the better you look at it looking back on it like this. I don't ever think about it again and i don't care because i didn't i'm. I'm not angry about the fact that i lost a bunch of time on it because it didn't it was an hour and a half done. I decided to think i'm gonna like the irishman and i think i'm going to say i like it and then smarty scored says he's going to be around the corner to beat the shit shit out of me for laughing at the time. It's gonna kick in the theater in kid. Jack makes it an interesting point in for me. It's like i think it's good to be invested in in movies these. It's it's good to have. Both it's good to have movies movie franchise. You're invested in. I just for horror. It's easier for me to watch these one offs and we go back to chapter two. It was first announced. Don't care of now care little bit more because it's about to come out but i just feel like as johner these these the way better suited to one us which is ironic because whores probably the single johner that has the most raw number of sequels for franchise is so fucking. That's great wrap up that that's a great point to end because you know. I think we do enjoy it. I think we did enjoy this movie as a little bit. The may not be a great but a big reason why is because it is something different. It's it's something that we don't see often. It's not something connected to anything. They're just a good time not me to my question i have for you guys actually told me to come into question. I'll fuck yeah. Let's go so what i'm thinking. Now is obviously the old school we're talking seventies eighties. Everyone knows michael myers leather face all the classic chucky who from this kind of decade not even this decade is from this era. What is the one whore you you know. Maybe he said annabel that do you think will stick back. We'll be like the kids look back at you. Know what i'm gonna hold classic almost any though i don't ahmadou oh slender man the movie cerebral but the people will remember slender man that is i mean that is a good question because i don't immediately immediately had the answer to that. I mean you almost wanna say the <hes>. What's the saw a jigsaw. It's probably jigsaw. You know what i think. I think thank you got. It nailed it. That's a that's. That's a great call. The one who i think it should be and i know i was so upset because they botched the sequel like so bad eh but the strangers is my favorite scary movie of all time strangers yes yes the original one with live tyler and i number two was so bad but potato sack guys guys like that could have been like you're going to be the guy who played potato sack do they. Did you so wrong like greg oden. Do it was like fucking got so late at night and i give nightmares was one point trill like this saw was a while ago which is funny because chris rock just wrapped filming on the saw reboot even saw that was is that this air that was two thousand two thousand ten was done. We're almost wrapped up. I can't think of anything from specifically this decade and i know they've had mouton's decade but like you're not gonna trip you saw jigsaw are the two thousand ten at the two thousand one one but isn't that crazy though we just set of how booming genres doing and there's really not a departure from icon's right yeah yeah. It's it's it's like it's decentralized in terms of his. I think like in this really at this girl from the ring maybe or is that still that's still tape. I think tomorrow tomorrow yeah okay so maybe but but i think it's a good point in just like the the it could be could be pennywise with how well it's done but can you even say pennywise for sure because like pennywise is still nineteen eighteen eighties property <hes> but it feels like it feels like now horrors decentralized in terms of you. We know maybe being more about like concepts than characters like i think is something like get out where i would. I would say the <hes> you know the the hypnosis scene. Was you know that's pretty iconic terms of that movie but that's not necessarily a character. People can say like you know that that's a great horse slasher. There's no villain. There's no killer versus. That's a good point. It's like yeah like a couple of the cup of tea era for like like that's yet want to give a jury or a sound like music. In the thing is they are or even something like <hes> the <hes> gosh us right like the was the tethers tethered. I mean they they had a pretty iconic nick. Look in in design but still you gotta wonder if we'll stand the test of time or not. I think i i do think annabel. Will i mean obviously the n._f._l.'s probably up here for twenty ten. Yeah yeah kids will not us but you know kids. That's something you know if there's one in the room like get out. Get that out what walk tall dolls creek now chucky and that's a good point because when you say like the audience is different like like kids are probably i'm not watching get out and <hes> and <hes> us in and saying like these are the these are the horror movies. We like like it is. It is a very like you know a p._g. Thirteen go with your friends when you're thirteen to watch these creepy s movies and we're shocked whenever these antebellum movies make shit ton of money because that's the audience so you're probably right in that. It's not even that jordan peele universe. It's it's in these flake patrick wilson eighteenth movie in the series things and it's just saluted with the amount of moves to make after that kinda stink especially if the animal universe lopes not a hater of the none of us theater religion the last antebellum either does ample comes home not bad not as bad as i thought would be great yeah. I just thought they missed like they mashed like every it was kind of like everything yes exactly or universe and we we're big patrick wilson guys here biggest patrick olsen pod there is. I don't know how that it happened but we've become just happened. I gave it an eighty two audience of seventy eight sixty nine seventy sixty nine okay that trill can sandjak seventy-five each. That's ready or not go. Check it out. Though i think definitely fun movie definitely go check it out. It's something different and unique not a reboot not a sequel not part of an extended universe. Maybe it'll get a sequel. I dunno but that's not something that you're going to think about when you're watching. It's got a pretty hard ending a pretty funny ending. Actually <hes> lynn laws thing <hes> so that's that's right. You're not <hes> before we get into concessions trill. Do you have did you see what we tweet it out of the pod. No just look it up and then when you laugh. I hope you laugh. We'll know you saw it eddie. You have hill interrupted for the laugh in a second. You have a concessions gripe. I've a big a a big gripe listen. This might have been gone over by you guys so i apologize but it is unacceptable for movie goers is he about the he saw he saw that he's looking for. He's doing he's. He saw photoshop the pictures you back among getting interviewed by our so my my big a gripe is an no moviegoer should have to deal with these fucking concession stands where the popcorn's already premade. I agree yep yep. Have you talked about that. It is insane that they want you to pay that mock. You should get a fresh popcorn. Every time i agree and that's become a thing only recently to speed up and and it's sitting under the fucking like lamps yes fast food places. Don't even use the fucking lamps anymore yes so i feel like the angry like dad or the angry. Whatever but i'm i'm always okay. Can i please get a freshman the freshman tomorrow come on. You're gonna pay fifteen dollars for popcorn. That's still like fucking crazy especially when i know it doesn't cost or anything like the employees whatever they gotta make good or bad. If you ask nicely shouldn't be a bit like a big deal but i have a huge gripe with movies trying to do that. No oh i'm bare hungry. I'm i'm all in your pretzel bites guy yeah. You don't like the pretzel bites. I mean if i'm i mean i'm the biggest popcorn i i go to the movies to get popcorn and watch something at home. Yeah i do but it's sometimes do you notice you get bad popcorn. Sometimes no never a._m._c. and i love a._m._c.'s popcorn. Okay that is bad when when you go to a different theater and it's got different tasting popcorn than your regal's tastes different than a._m._c.'s throws me off. What's your butter salt ratio. I don't do butter none. You used to which is funny because we used to say we butter and don't butter ruins. We still do on our graphics online but europe butter guirec nj varies like if i'm the move gotta be in the mood to do butter otherwise usually don't mostly because of my clean hands guy and like i just don't like again the grease in the hands of napkins vote okay i used happy and then i was like this is like it's just too much butter and i was willing way too much people. Do the straw trick. Do you like to start your i don't. I don't think it doesn't necessarily certainly it's bullshit. You're crushing half the popcorn of the bag to yeah. I don't like and i there's something about to stand there like hold on up the line with the straw fucking sucked into into that to the butter dispenser. I guess them not a fan of them. Got some. They're not a sponsor they should they got some good snacks taco things now they've got these mac and cheese bites now pretty good and their chicken tenders to kendrick adam with god those are so worth it was worth. It was like a twenty minute. Wait so worth it. They were absolutely delicious hide and seek kind of sport right count it right sure yeah it is so so we're gonna do at least favorite sports. We're talking about most overrated but it just ended up being list of least favorite football's back this week. This is like defacto football week this. This is gonna be releasing on thursday. Eddie bears good luck opening the n._f._l. Season hunter n._f._l. Season ken jackson with the chargers. I'm very happy with the browns and trail lost andrew luck so we're super bowl so jacoby perset. He's he's. He's just as good okay talk there. I talked myself into kelly. <hes> i mean i think i think he's very close to andrew luck in terms of ability and he's the backup so the sky's the disguise the limit for this team. Did you see that story. Were apparently somebody tried to buy the colts for like three point two billion dollars in said no that's crazy. I'll just i'll just just sell it and then buy season tickets sold by another team point two billion dollars you could you could definitely you could definitely get the jaguars from from from con right like billy man. Well shame console the you you would. What are you going to. What are you gonna do all right here. We go top five least favorite sports movies. This might cause a little ruckus listen here. Why not maybe some arguing eddie. We're gonna let you go first on an ken jack and then myself then children the audience so just number five for now top five number five least favorite sports movie. I think you guys like this one just from a previous ranking i saw or like you know your film review but i i didn't like crazy to okay five worries for at least favourite not that upset with it. Wow that's like respect. Hey respect your opinion. I didn't they force kind of the the girlfriend like proposal scene and like i i just i understand like the kind of need that angle in there but i just really didn't like that. <hes> the soundtrack just took such a hit for me like i did you like the soundtrack. The hail mary in the first one was like like that gami. I mean the first ones fucking yeah and then the training seen you gotta have a good training seen in the desert nerves. Ona's just didn't do a former c. I don't necessarily agree with you there but i do think there was a week or training seen in the first one and most of that's because they split it into the two training scenes whereas like halfway halfway in the first fight second fight that i personally agree with you on a love creed one i i i. I liked what i like a good out there pick. I like good out there. Pick okay ken jack number five least favorite sports movie <hes> so my number five least favorite sports movies the blindside. I just never understood the hype behind the blindside agree i just i it's just one of those things. Were going going into it. I definitely saw probably like three or four years after came out. Everyone's like this is one of the best movies ever. You gotta see it. It's so so good and i was just like not just under one but actively just did not like it and it was very unenjoyable to me. It's not a fan at all. <hes> sandra bullock fan either so you're not a sandra bullock. I'm sandra andropov. I like sandra bullock. The human amount of noted sandra bullock formats person yeah. I just you know what the blindside was not as good as people it was but i i like the blindside. I found it to be charming. I think i'm probably shouldn't be on this list but i think the fact that i was so like insanely underwhelmed underwhelmed with it based off the height definitely hit hard for me so i'm probably fairly right now but still i just liked how the fictional michael or or did not know how to like walk at the start of it like literally got into football field and just didn't even know how to put his hands up to block walk that was yeah. She plays good though i know you don't like your but again i it's one of the things is just not a bullet person in most season good in some stuff. I actually enjoyed her gravity quite a bit okay to to well liked movies off the top. I like this might not so much number. Five live john goodman. The babe jungle been plays babe ruth. It's it's honestly the fucking swing the swing and i know it looks like babe ruth swing. I just can't get over john goodman as babe ruth. It bothers me so much so much and in here you have up to that point when that movie is released and this this list is very special for me because i like to feel eddie. How old are you twenty eight. Okay you guys. I'm six years age after twenty six years old and you got a little older and kim check <hes> i corrupt when all these shitty sports movies being released like these these were right when i was like five years old in here movie about babe ruth that point the legend the greatest greatest baseball player ever lived it was borey stinky piece of shit it exactly and they babe bruce was an asshole. He probably wasn't asshole. You'll have to make him an asshole in the movie. I'm a kid. I don't want to see that the best moments really the sandlot not on my list by the way okay g oh boy yeah. I'm sure i'm very happy back me up on the babe. It's on my list so hell yeah all right okay. What's your number five my number five. There's any given sunday. I remember we had a reality on tony. Reality does not like this movie. That's right yeah. He does not eating pacino speech stinks. I just hope for the the people liking this movie. They've they've made me resent it. I don't like much about this movie. It is <hes> it is not my cup of tea. The uniforms are ridiculous. The football sucks and everything's just over the top which i think was kind of the point of it. The the only good part about it is the ending where he <hes> he realistically says he's switching teams and he's taking his quarterback with this. I'm okay with the speech like this doesn't bother me but i would. I wouldn't put on my lease ever. If if i had an overrated it would have been this would have been my overrated list. I just can't i can't stand this movie. I'm sorry again. This is my opinion. I take i'm not telling you. This is a bad sports movie. You you can like these are all fucking takes. I know these are. I mean sorry i apologize. I fucked up hits. A take is when you tell somebody what they should be thinking. Eh opinion is when you admit defeat and say. I don't have the best taste in any way. This is how i feel about audience number. Five good picked true zero like that major league to back to the minors okay major leagues. My favorite sports movies indians fan major league two major league to i don't i don't. I don't recognize this movie uvi. I want nothing to do with this. Movie shouldn't explain who is <hes>. Did they get everybody back. From the first major league major league shoe who i believe actually no majorly to is not back to the minors made his major to anti added. I'm back. The miners were gross. They both stink. I hate both those movies which which was on on your list you just both of them back to the mine either. I didn't put any on which i guess is an oversight just like it. You're right. Oh that's the audience audience yeah. Okay my bed my bed charlie sheen. Dennis hayes bob euchre. David keith was wesley snipes nights in major league to not okay but he's a major league one. I was which is fantastic fantastic yeah. They just didn't come back. <hes> you river river corbin bernsen used to be on the mtv rock and jock games just from being in this movie and being on l._a. Law never hear about corbin bernsen. You don't fade away never here never hear about everyone has that rick dohrn jersey right arising roger dorn jersey he right yeah the big big door networked name of his fans dorn heads eddie number four number four. I'm going to go with the rookie with dennis quaid own pick a good pick that was just piling heap disney. Shit throws pitch passed. A construction speed limit sign. He's like this is a hit dog dog ship. That was the moment that i'm good shit breaks or something so you're like holy shit you through ninety eight thrown gas <hes>. That's a good pick. The rookie also dentistry. It looks nothing like the actual guy by the way no less than he says. Quote is played like myriad of people. He's played like forgetting and bill clinton at one point and like he can play anybody. That's a good pick the rookie number four for eddie kendricks number four at least sports movie i. I wish i saw the paper because i'd probably put it in in your somewhere but i don't want to read it if you haven't seen it. I'm gonna go with ed with our good friends. Boy in low man monkey play baseball movie. <hes> <hes> i in that was jim caviezel. I think was in at some point. I scarcely remember <hes> spat. They try to airbus a year before airbud was was made made in airbus did better knocked out parken edges stunk. It was terrible. No one wants to see him. Play baseball myself included do do we have a chicken and a duck. Aren't we wacky <hes>. Do you guys have trouble with the curve on your list. No no no no but i hate that movie. Why don't you like how it gets to the end where this guy's just a major prospect and he's like throwing the curve her new it punk never would never would've phase. Is that the miners. I think about that one though my number four curveball probably would have figured this out nice school but whatever number four is a steaming steaming pile l. of shit movie. Actually i gotta get my my actual ranking. What i gave this movie. I gave this movie a eight eight out of one hundred <hes> it stars notable actors rob schneider david spade and jon hater and at his bench warmers ooh. I don't like this. I don't have this. They don't know pick movie stanks funny the middle school heater member. Tim meadows only good part in this movie. No i'm twelve part. Has that's like still these and everything yeah. The jif is still around everything that staying power actually know craig kilborn a great part of this movie. He is very but that's only because of its me seeing craig kilborn and tim meadows. That's it this. I hate everything about this movie. This won't lamda all these. I like the dynamite this is lumped in with all these types of movies involving the likes of schneider spayed hater sandler whole crew. This best part about this is that it was definitely just like rob schneider be like hey can. We have a movie where i'm cool yeah yeah. Adam's adam's is like yeah you can be the man in this one on the athletic guy world of this cost thirty three million dollars wild add cost at twenty three million expensive forty two humiliate twenty twenty one million do the line and how you doing they went through twenty-seven chimpanzees one million per trill thrill number four at least favorite sports movie number four is this is actually a bad movie. It's called ladybugs because seeing it is that the guy running dangerfield perfect rodney dangerfield and i forget if it's his son but the his his son or nephew whatever cross dresses is to join and play on a a girl soccer team now what are sent to the group chat is maybe one of the most <hes> epat up movie scenes of all time <hes> do you can watch it on your own time but it's essentially him and rodney dangerfield in a changing room with old ladies watching on getting the improper context as to what is going on in the changing room is is something that <hes> probably should not have been green lit early nineties. He's but you know every it's the wild west back then. So what do i know but this movie sucked ass baddeck. I said this this is squarely in that time when i was a kid where a kids movie came out and is about sports wanted to go see it was bad true as a kid like any sports will be musi musi movie <hes> here. We go number four. This is not shocking to me. I actually thought this was going to be higher rudy. <hes> that's the audience number for rudy. What are your thoughts on that eddie. I love rudy. I mean people we actually had this argument on our pod a couple of weeks ago on redline radio that the chief doesn't think rudy's a sports movie hustle. He just thinks that gets the most preposterous. It's like motivation. Movie was just like something like that can be both. It doesn't need to be one of the other yeah. I agree. It's it's it's a it's a bad take. I agree with you but i i enjoy rudy if you didn't like rudy as a kid and it's like didn't inspire you a little bit like i don't know i it yeah. That's crazy like it's not to take. That's a statement to rile people up someone else in our office nate who came over and told me that the joker is a system role and that anyone could have played. The joker won an oscar. It's really keith ledger and i'm like that's not a take. That's a statement that you're just making to piss people off. I take it's never heard a little. I like i like rudy. Rudy rudy belongs up there with like the greatest sports movie in terms of like quality but for what it is for the cookie cutter sports where it is. I i love it and it's the music the music of these areas tonic doodoo on the list guy clap at the end great matching gift. Yes people's dislike notre. Dame carries over into this movie and part of me wonders if people would dislike it if the team were like a if he played for utah and he was a you've like i think people would feel either way about it. I don't think it's like i. I like rudy. I like rudy lot. Part of the reason i like rudy is because it's the only time i think i've seen my dad cry and <hes> a eh. You know that that was really you know that the movie is spy. Movie is formulated to make <hes> baby boomer men tear up at the end my dad fork lake. What was that movie so so like. I like it for that reason because he liked it. That's i still liked. He's still alive probably still likes folks trill ruediger. That's his last really rudy founded out. Dad was rudy jon favreau heater all right eddie number three favorite sports movie number three no surprise here i would be surprised if it's not anyone else's list including the audience but i have rocky five geico could pick up their listed too bad movie them recounting the son in making him the millo richer whatever this guy and then incre- to perfect i love it and i thought actually the beginning was fine like the promise of him being training someone and it was it was it was okay and i don't know just the streetfight. That's that's all there is to competitor. Bill simmons fuck matters bill simmons. He did a cartoon series beco- needed on page two d._s._p. An an and they were like corny classic bill simmons type jokes and there's one cartoon where he goes to best buy and he buys the rocky box set and he makes them take rocky five out of the box oxypan putting it in the bag classic bill. Take another bunk but y- mikey five. I'm telling you but he always stuck doc rocky five ken jack number three airports movie number. Three's do you want a man. <hes> there's a movie i watched specifically because aaron rodgers tweeted about it so much and i just didn't understand the references he was making this is back when like this is like two thousand eleven twitter or whatever when people would actually follow celebrities to see what they tweet so. I was like oh man artist tweet about this movie john. I'm gonna sue hypes about and it was terrible. It was really really bad. I fucking came barely remember who else was even vivica. Fox is in it for sure and that's is it so i can remember not very good not entertaining to me. Which really do you remember it. Yeah oh yeah remember. It's it's it's a it's a terrible movie. It's sort of the same lines as <hes> ladybugs because he's a guy goes undercover into the w._n._b._a. Dominates the league or whatever and just not very funny. I think the gender bender comedy role it has wheels could be funny. Just not funny in this case i there's another. What's the other one third. Wasn't there a romantic subplot one of his teammates yeah oh yeah there sure was there's a bunch of those. There's she's the man yep then there's double crossed the motorcross movie right and there's like there's the twin basketball moved whoo that's why there's such a basis for sports movies all right number three for me this. This movie is bad this movie. I thought this was critically. He more pain than it was this. I really disliked this movie. The combination of these two did not work for me whatsoever. One of these guys was kind of at the at the peak of his t._v. Show that's leather heads with george clooney renee zellweger and john krasinski <hes> jonkers is he's done so many better things since this leather heads. I mean old sports in general not into it. This movie was corny. Tacky adding didn't give a fuck about the characters the romantic stuff stunk. It was just like n._a._t._o. Look stupid as hell the they just look dumb as can be and i love the the poster for the movies just jordan with a big black guy next to theirs jim helper the i i did like rene zellweger's transatlantic accent in the as probably the best part of how outlandish your accent was stephen root in this as well and jonathan pryce might be nominated for an oscar budweiser trill number three least favorite sports and movies yeah yeah number three is <hes> little bigly kid this kid his his grandpa owns the minnesota twins why they pick the minnesota twins ownership fantasy movie like don't make it about the twins okay like i mean maybe because they just won the world series blake then they go back to back or maybe three times in the early nineties. I digress career puckett. He <hes> he owns the twins. You think that'd be enough. That'd be enough for like a child to have their power. Wish fantasy fulfilled no. He can't find a magic so he manages the team to is asking for too much. It's a shitty movie. I hate it. That's a good pick though i'm glad you went after a little big league because i didn't have the guts to go after this one because i think people like this one a decent amount right yeah i mean it was a fun movie to watch as a kid. I you know you kind of wished you were him. You know i will say i don't i don't remember much from it. We'll save that going back and like rethinking about it that that was that was such a a mean thing to do to a kid. The kid would would never be able to own a professional sports team and they put that idea my mind fuck me. I'm saving thoughts about kids in in sports smart. I'm saying to me to this is going high. There's a couple of kids movies. There's actually a couple of different. Things you might not no is going. We'll see here's this one. I'm gonna play the song and let me let me tell me if you know what this is from so. Please tell me you're picking picking. This is the audience tape. Oh longest yard adam sandler crazy. I didn't win. This song came out when i was in high school in texas of the fuck ev if you did not have a highlight video <hes> <music> with that song you stunk you were not a good football player and that's just what it came down to longest yard for the audience the adam sandler virtue number three. I it was just that's shocking yeah. It's shocking to be three. I maybe i can see it sneaking in a five or something but i think it is. You're you're wrong. If longest longest yard is a top five sandler movie free right yeah. I doubt agree. I don't like when people sneaking in the top five because it happens. It's a kanye movie. It's true same dumb. Brains cami emme movies and the peon on that movie. Who's a little fucking. We're at the little guys the rally no. It's a random accident. The the butterfinger guy football is it's live. It's like just a little wreck guy. Yeah good cheeseburger ready you like that because of the name eddie i mean yeah he's great. He's great funny <hes> joey diaz in it. I appreciate that <hes> but it's good we're goldberg kevin nash yup kevin big romanowski. Yes oh kevin kevin nash rules. I want to see him in movies. I liked him in magic agic. Mike yeah that's right. What a what a random ass role big old the old tree sequoia of stripper just fucking thick boy. I i am kind of surprised. I think this is maybe one where it has more name recognition than something like babe or whatever else that we had named <unk> and shit so i kind of get it but in a bigger your sense like i do not think this deserves being top-five. We're still time no nowhere close to that really but do you want to roll into your number two yeah. Let's do it. My number two is <unk> airbud golden receiver listen. I'm not buying the worst ones airbud regular airbud fan regular great story bummed you out yeah. I mean he's just not a two sport athlete. I'm just not buying. Let alone like five sport. Athletes drew like i get it. You know be shit out of the warrior or was he on the warriors. Were were the worries whatever whoever they beat and then you know they beat the shit out of the clown it was. I really enjoy airbud one but you know he's not a two sport athlete airbud air bud golden receiver airbud world the pop airbud seven seven seventh inning fetch airbud spikes back air buddies snow snow buddies space buddies santa buddies spooky buddies treasure buddy's super buddies the search for santa claus santa paws to the santa pups and fat buddies. You know forget our our favorite chinese cop movie fep bodies fantastic. I like the the basketball one soccer one with only two ones. I think i liked best was the first one we're world drop. I mean i know oh no connection to that. Then love me some dogs playing soccer everybody classic classic get out of here scrim dog and kid movie yeah i after that like and it was it's great for the pudding industry. Yes huge waves. Yes i wanna vanilla pudding after that the peak of your time and the putting into the air but it was that in and matt billy madison when he check that's never lie. It was always chocolate. Pudding saw buddy going house on those best. Exactly in on vanilla pudding outing can't number two least ever sports movie <hes> my number two least favorite sports movies fever pitch and i'll say this it's it's drew barrymore terry moore and jimmy fallon. I do not find. Jimmy found very good in most of the movies he does. I do think i do like drew barrymore and most movies. Is this movie about the red sox. Yes my yankees fan also yes us and overview. I don't like this movie number. Two least favorite <hes> sports league all time wasn't controversy with jimmy found. He became came a red sock like five days beforehand or something yeah yeah. He's a yankees fan and then. He said he's like i'm a red sox fan. He said something he's the most political answer right. Any talk show host though where they decide like laugh and be like oh. I like all sports like okay jamie do your what do you call choked up. Crocheting choked up literally the cried or something. I think it's a remake movie fever pitch. It was based off a nineteen ninety. Seven british film called fever pitch which is funny when you think about it because it's two different sports but they get away with essentially the same a play on words in the title and <hes> the the fever pitch a british one is about the <hes> think arsenal that makes sense not the red sox anyway. This was direct by the fairly brothers. I guess you're wondering do you like jeff. If you're not on my list but no i i like it. Yeah i get. I get why you don't like the defenders of fever pitch. People love fever and a lot of people boston people. I hate it too. I know yeah most. I think <hes> let's talk about this. He despises the rear admiral. L. hates it <hes>. I don't know the yankee dancing part that was that was a good show and it's still stuck with me yeah that one i get there's moments to take away from it. I agree with this. I just never ver- bought into the chemistry never been in the most potline and just a fan. I think jimmy fallon jimmy fallon is. I should probably talented yes. There's an actor sir. You know movies. I i could see we're coming from. We like to laugh about how much he laughs at literally anyone hey. How are you jimmy he. He's literally crying on the floor. It's bad but then say him then you see him at s._n._l. Forty with justin timberlake and they're singing holy images zest and element was i know but that's where it's a shit like you forget who he is now because he's doing this laughing shit on t._v. Ever good point oh. I thought comment no. I'm laughing. I'm i'm i'm i'm the audience jimmy fallon truly be your joined the compensation mine number two the association is what fucking put it over the edge for me. I hate that they're associated with. This could have been any other fucking team and that's draft day. I cannot stand the stupid. Fucking moved like the forty year old dupin movie angels in the outfield is more believable than the shit that goes down in this movie the stupid trade at the end. We talked to tim simon's. Who's in this movies and veep n._f._l. Teams had to approve the the trades in the movie. Nobody was out to lose the traits and you couldn't draft the boss at the changed fucking script great actors this movie fucking chadwick both in franklin gela kevin costner jennifer garner dennis leary out. I'm not gonna call dennis. Leary great actor sorry dentistry but he was in small soldiers though great fucking movie right movie but this movie was nonsensical. It was stupid it was it was like two tacky. It was too over the top. Everything just looked like cheesy and fake like every music so fake like the football in effect. A browns are associated with it and then it rolled into the giants al dra- it just it was such a an a downhill snowball rolling affective trash for the browns they did have a good start that next went to seven four and then they lost every other game so it just <hes> and i know unpopular barstool because mix tape love draft there. I cannot stand it also be there are team and we just did the barstool so sports a fantasy draft. Your team stinks. I'm sorry to say oh boy kevin coleman with a throwaway. Come on i'll let calling after shang pal trill number two leased average sports movie the bay now know the betas one number one okay but <hes> yeah so this one is <hes> this one's eddie. The lumpy will be yeah so this is. This is another one she. She's the coach and it's just <hes> it's not great. I just i don't i don't like sports movies where things happen like the under the knicks threatens to move the team to saint louis like that like the new york knicks would ever be relocated to saint louis <hes> but <hes> yeah i mean like i'm a big whoopi goldberg van lover on the view but i just <hes> this one not not a great movie love her on the view big fan of the next generation okay true all right. You don't what's great about that. Too is is at a you. Bring up the moving the team. Did you know i brought this up on. <hes> chicks in the office today we guest hosted on there was they bought odenkirk. Kirk wrote a super fans movie. Oh really about the team in a big a bad ownership and they like gonna move the team and like the bills mirsky and shit was getting ready. Ah you know they were holding down the fort for the bears fan so how would that that would love and odin kirk. This was like in the ninety yes and then like i think like wayne's world bombed or some shit you know lauren. Shut it all wrong true but that would have been you know awesome. I i would love that similar to your number two picture of the audience number one yeah. It's ed student. Do the chicken duck right. I don't go to st why do we have a chick and the duck. It could be impression. Any of the environmental was yeah. It's ed ed stinks is ed worse than joey the spinoff of friends. I don't know if i've request and say ever no unseen you. Have you seen joey no yeah i'd i'd never watched joey. I'll tell you what i don't like my namesake hovering around the top two seriously at an eddie. That's that's tough. That is tough. That's tough what your number one though leads favorite sports movie my number one is san lot to me at the same one really yeah i was so it was so when i saw thurman merman is the catcher yeah right. I had high hopes perfect almost gave you. I hope not. I shouldn't say hi ho excited when i saw i was like okay like this could be decent. I mean not really but i wanted to. I wanted it so bad exactly exactly so <hes> it was terrible yeah. It was awful. I think <hes> it's like sound like an institution for like two classic childhood movie and this is one where like this now like roughly when i was in middle school or something like that and i was like oh shit i love this movie like when i was younger and i still cutting whatever but like this is going to be so awesome in good and strong dunk it was so bad was such a fucking letdown. It's one another one where it probably isn't as bad and rich letdown killing a letdown potential for the sandlot two. It's it's classic childhood. Movie thurmond's the greatest characters name ever just ahead hank mark ducasse and i'm bad santa's way up there from twelve commies ever. He retired retired from the bills to the thurman. Merman players would would a bigger like all right number one and here. I turn away to breathe. I reign of i. I've talked about this movie before. I despise this movie headed. I really hate it and it has nothing to do with the team in the movie movie it doesn't i you cannot whatever the kids fucking sports movie fine. Whatever the fact their season was turned turned around by a fucking closer. A relief pitcher is the dumbest fucking thing ever come. It didn't need to be that way. That's what i don't get how how many fucking games how many games did gary busey pitch did he. How many did he have fuck ninety starts. He started every game jeff well. How many games out of first take forty games out of first closer jeff whole team stone the pitching coach. The pitching coach could barely put together a complete sentence chef breath gentle and he's starting pitcher was gary busey. The pitching coach was daniel stern. I love home alone. I walked in stern. Come on he got caught between the door okay but what other movie has the words funky funky butler avenue the same one other. I can't number. That's partially why i hate little big. League is because rookie rookie of the year does little bigly better. John candy the announcer <hes> a little bit different but it's it's still the junky who i disagree. I don't need the kids movie to make a ton of sense. There's angels in the outfield. I'm okay with that. That's it's fine. It did dog shoot hoops k with k with the angels. Oh cathy angels. You could've made why i wanna say jeff. I mean come under hand. It was incredible is is any. Have you seen a single major league pitcher do that to date. I've never seen anyone do that. Since rookie of the year now he'll get tips to daniel stern gave him on the plane lane about all the free food you get and he saves. He put it on paper bag wallah breakfast. Just learn what what do you think chris angels fantasy baseball. The team is called. I am waiting for the punch. You guys deliver an and angels in the okay all right you're up. Let it happen your number ones the babe yeah. I'm i've done. It is <hes> yeah i it's. It's a bad movie. The about the the greatest one of the greatest baseball players of all time definitely many consider him to be the greatest more and more people are saying that they were as the greatest <hes> significantly less been saying this it would get fucking gas by like the worst aaa pitcher in baseball henri rolin gardner could roll the ball swing sixty sprain at it. When you're a kid like i remember my dad was born early forties now and he drew up with mickey mantle and those guys and babe ruth was still legend to him so yeah i heard about babe ruth being a legend and us even more of a legend to be in and he says movies played by like a mid roseanne run john goodman and do just eats hotdogs and smoke cigars informed in theory though john goodman as babe ruth is everything you ever wanted it looks fine and he got the swing downright trail like he did it right. It just didn't look the proper it it either it either needed to be way way cheerier or completely dark and gritty just make it miserable but as a kid i wouldn't have enjoyed would that. This is a bad movie nobody has anybody tried to do movie about babe percents. Maybe babe ruth. Just isn't that interest. I don't know i don't know the answer that no no bill kristol. We'll try to do a whole bu got roger mayors and tiger stadium. Maybe maybe he can give it another shot. I think if they were to make a a babe ruth movie right now i would definitely not rush out to see they pretty much almost any baseball player before nineteen fifty. You could count me out on. I like sixty two roger marris mickey mantle movie yeah yeah our good friend barry pepper yeah they have. They die cobb very make national very. I'd sign up for that yeah. That was kinda interesting. That's a good pick though i actually we've talked about the bay before so actually should have thought about you. Having babies is just swing is i hate saying it's off putting because he did a good job but it just doesn't look right now. It just doesn't look right eddie ken jack trill somebody one of the three of you said the audiences number one. I'm gonna get sandler too. I think a lot of people dislike what your guests rocky five. What your guest i think it's i think it's going to be rocky. Five to fever pitch number. One is fever pitch. I know we have a big northeast based thing. It's a lot of red sox fans for spamming vote rightfully so some of the scenes like them. Singing sweet caroline at the baseball game is just too much for me to believe that was the moment where they lost me right there. I just yeah i'm like no no one would ever do this sucks finch number six for the audience airbud original original heritage assert at number seven like mike. I could see that number eight ed. I mean to me oh number nine kicking kicking and screaming who they number ten summer catch focus summer catch freddie prinz jetty prints yeah somewhere he's he's <hes> he's. He's out to play ball in jessica yu the ranking looking at dot good. It's an eight percent it on rotten <unk> summer catch yeah yeah. That's cool uses the horn baseball player movie. Okay trails it's like did you like never been kissed. Drew barrymore was that was that at the end where like they had the baseball game for her to show up yeah the mountain yeah i was. I was looking at some lists like on the internet list <hes> well. It'd be what basketball football that's horse shit and fuck. No that's definitely anywhere close. No i slap shot to start to his major league back to the minors. The next karate kid caddyshack defect is just what was the closest for you guys to make it on your list. Did you have one major league major league to me and they believe the miners definitely up. I don't think there was any. I left off rows shit. This is really close. Most of mine was pretty concrete. The new bad news bears the fucking <hes> what's after at that guy's name but yeah that one is. Who's your caddy m._p._p. Most valuable primate date another fucking sports movie movie around that d. three. I'm a huge muddy ducks guy. I would not put the my least favorite but like mighty ducks for me like ducks fly together. All that shit like i just doesn't. I never liked those but that wouldn't put them anywhere near my top. Who's pick <hes> takes the most heat here. You got me with the ear pro august shredded for earlier. I think any given sunday is pretty pretty controversial veto yes. It definitely is but because i've rookie of the year number one and people do not like my rookie year. Take excuse me opinion to take fuck it. I'm gonna wind safe to take another one that i did want to put on there but i didn't as golf harto. The legend of bagger fan is not very good and i like them. That's when i think i've watched too late. Oh and i also it's not my least favorite but i don't like as much as many people tin cup chose like we don't look at each other. We mentioned that i used to love it ships passing in the night yeah dude that it's a perfect ad movie that is roy cut man. His name was z. We call him. There's <hes> there's a lot from like the disney channel things they have some good sportsmanlike brink shout at the brain of the irish the one i'm glad yeah look the irish motocross double-teamed or whatever the one. I'm glad nobody put on their list. The legendary movie starring tony danza the garbage picking field goal kicking philadelphia phenomenon. Nobody put that on there yep couldn't do it. Can't we wanted to count horse racing. Put everyone of them in here but we're horse warhorse secretary like i would put everyone of them sea. You see biscuit another book that i read in school. You think involving horse racing. He's not a fan. I always pretend i always read novelization of movies ever really got through got game.

A loved the Sixth, Generation Floridian, and so that makes me a true southerner and those of us who have families going back into the eighteen hundreds and have a little problem when people like move from the north especially the northeast and they come down, they say, well, now a southerner go no year living in the south. But to be a southerner, you needed to be here a while and those of us who are southerners mean a few generations You didn't just get here yesterday while I. Love that at I'm tone. excited. Let's jump in with the title of today's show make your sales pop. What does pop stand for? Yes. So pop is is naturally an acronym as we were discussing before the show pop stands for preparation organization in productivity in where they came from his, we conducted a study after five years in business I launched sales integrity in two thousand and four in. We're real curious because of all these sales forces we worked with you could slap the stack rankings on the wall and you see number one rap on down to the bottom rep, right? It was always the same thing it was to wrap struggling in and. Out of the top two spots, nobody even close to them. Then everyone else the core of the sales floor force hovered just above or below what I refer to as the line. The Line is budget target goal quota, right? Whatever it's called the organization. Then he had one or two stragglers all way at the bottom, not even close to the middle of pack in. So we wanted to answer two questions, but I'm going hone in on the first one here, which was the natural question, which is what holds the common sales professional back from not only you know achieving what the top sales professional because sometimes that's just tough to do but what else back from consistently being above the line And I think that's one of the biggest questions coaches and consultants are asking themselves is how can I consistently produce the sales that will give me the revenues and the lifestyle I want Exactly, right and so if you're experiencing the peaks and flows or the peaks in you know in valleys nature and flow of the business where okay. Generated much leads I focused on those that close the business now shifted my attention to working at business and took my foot off the gas pedal of lead Gen that that's where you can experiencing experienced that. So we found that to be the case in. So we wanted to figure out what is the root cause of that peaks in in valleys nature of just selling Legion in general and what we found. In discovered through our research is that it was always the same three reasons that held the common sales professional back and it doesn't even matter if it's sales professional insert coach Salt trainer 'cause I'm in that type of business and anyone trying to build their business you have to generate leads and sell right in. It was always the same three reasons that it never wavered. It was always because they were consistently not prepared not organized in not productive in the real missing link. There was that one thing led to another if you're not prepared, you tend not to be. Organized you're not organized. You tend not to be productive, and if you're not productive, you're not gonNA, your sales and income goals. The main thing being the keystone habit of preparation, right? That's the habit that drives all the other ones. Because if you're not prepared, you will show up and wing it and fly by the seedier pants when you're selling that won't be impressive because you're going to appear disorganized to the other person. Therefore, you won't be productive to move the process forward. So that's what make your sales pop means putting an emphasis in in systematic approach. To consistently being prepared, organized in productive to achieve your sales income goes well, and I can see how if you're not prepared, it's impossible to be organized because you don't know what to organize, and therefore you're not going to be per productive because you don't even know what productivity means but I also think what was important that you kind of slipped in there was that if you're not prepared, you're obviously not gonna come across as confident and one of the most important things people want to buy from coaches is that we're confident we can help them get the outcome. Exactly right that that is interesting because I've I have my own podcast and I go on other podcasts get interview people ask about you know what is few depict one kind of trait that would drive all of selling and being successful when it re re relates to sales what would it be confidences? The is that greatest sales elixir I if you're confident if your customer is is already experiencing some fear uncertainty doubt about. Signing up for a program it, but you're so confident you can help them. They're going to buy you and your confidence before even the by the program. So you I absolutely I think that is the the big driver. Right there is that I know when I, when I buy coaching because I'm constantly having coaches as well I, I want somebody who's confident. You know I'm going, Hey, this is what I want to achieve. How do you think we can best achieve it and they are confident that we can get there because without that confidence. And that's important point because you could have all the skills in the world to get them. There might unless you portray that confidence. But let's talk about how you get there because I know you've got an incredible selling motto and I want to get back in because folks this is the note taker. Let me tell you be warned there's a lot of information here, but it's all incredible information. So shantelle was that six parts sales model yes. So I talked about that seals achiever. Mindset study, right that's where the make your sales pop came from and the three you know most common reasons that would hold someone back is not being prepared organizer productive. Well, the the reverse of that we naturally wanted to answer the other question, which is what makes the best of the best those top sales achievers who they are, and they exhibited six core competencies that I've kind of taken and reverse engineered, and distill down to my selling system known as the sales achievement framework. Selling model right and so that's what you're referring to. These are known as the six TS T. so six TS of sales achievement in the first one is target audience. The second one is tangible value. The third one is talk tracks. The fourth one is tactical plan. The fifth one is tempo control in the six one is touch points. So if I were to system is that and put it in a model that your audience could make use of I would look at my business and look at this as a way it really this is a clever way of creating your business plan or your quarterly sales plan as we call it. When we're working with sales teams, you I have to define who is your target audience. You don't WanNa go chasing a FM business anything for money you want to narrow the focus down to. The riches are in the niches you've heard that probably right. So focus on who you can really help every single time that's your target audience. That's another whole conversation. It's a module within our coaching program with the first thing is defined that target audience. Then you need to identify the tangible value that that target audience is seeking through the application of your product service or solution. Right? Why would they buy from you? Well, it's value they're seeking what is that tangible value? That's how you're going to communicate to that target audience, and that leads to that next T, which is talked tracks you know. I'd something here because as you were saying tangible value and I'm an NLP person. What I'm saying to myself as they got to see feel and hear it your sensory tangible correct that for them they can do something that makes it feel real inside Oh i, get it because stays abstract. They can never get a picture and they can never buy into it. Right? That's right in one of the most common things here for my customers are well, what we do is a little bit Bolus or it's so unique that I don't know if we can make tangible where they have an Roi for instance, and you can't get an Roi you need. To Go home folks, I'm telling you this right now as your coach listening to me today if you cannot get a demonstrable are y that is significantly more than what they're going to pay you there's no point in coaching. That's exactly right and that's exactly what the second tease about tangible value better really think through in map your offerings to the tangible value that your target audience seeking in. Then once you do that, you're going to convert that into talk track. So you're going to have to have messaging for an and there's a whole variety of forms of messaging from you know phone scripts to temple it's two social selling templates, unlinked end live. Discussions you're going to have in meetings and day. So that's a that's a whole module of itself, but you need to think through that before this is the preparation part before you go in front of him. So use a sports analogy jv there's practice there's game day and everything leading up to game day you'd be silly to think your favorite sports team would not watch film, create a game plan for their opponent for that week practice it just show up on Game Day without pads or the uniforms on and expect a win. Well, that's what a lot of people do when it comes to selling they just fly by the seat of their. Pants as their strategy and wing it as their operational mode they show up in in in throw up. So to speak and don't have a method to the madness because they didn't prepare the messaging ahead of time in map it to the value, the target audience seeking. So that's what talk tracks is all about you need to customize that, make it unique and relevant in map to and our y right. So then next would be tactical plan. So again, in the spirit of being prepared and organized in your go to market strategy, you're going to think through what are my campaigns to go to market what are my sales pipeline development or lead generation You know campaigns that I'm going to execute upon we recommend narrowing it down to the focus in power of three. Don't try and take on more than three different campaigns that you're gonna go to market with because you'll get overwhelmed and take those three campaigns in narrow that focus down to three months. So it's a quarterly sales plan right and then you can refresh him at. The end of three months because you've given it enough of a cycle to see is it relevant? Is IT GONNA work? Is it not effective in so you can you could just remove one and add another one end and refresh the two that are working and off you go into the next quarter. So a tactical plan again, that could be another whole episode on water all those. And I just want to ask one question here. How do you differentiate at this point between strategic and tactical? Strategy or strategic is what I'm going to do in being tactical as how I'm going to do that what. It so I so really both of them come in here as at a park. Yes. So as a matter of fact, in our quarterly sales plan, their strategy is your campaigns. That's what you're GonNa do right the tactics then or the actual tasks that you're gonNA execute that roll up to the strategies. Then what we have them do is take those. Tasks and convert them into this next thing tempo control blocks of time in put it on their calendar in it occupies space time and attention in. It's a meaningful use of your time. It should be on your calendar for instance, when I I look at a calendar of sales professionals or even entrepreneurs that we work with they have meetings in call schedule. But they don't have drive time to and from a meeting, and if it's out of your office, not call, they don't have an hour prep time preferably two or three days before to prepare for that meeting. So there are organized and appear impressive right so they just have the meeting in. So what happens is you trick the human brain into thinking i. Got All this white space and all the time in the world of my calendar in the reality that one hours relief four hours of your time our drive time to and from the hour of the meeting in an hour prep time ahead of time when you start to fill in other meaningful tasks like prospecting research building out list setting up your systems. Making calls sending follow up emails. If you schedule everything that's going to drive towards you achieving your sales and income goals, you're gonNA realize I don't have as much free time as I thought you're GONNA say no to distractions more. You won't let things pop up in derail you'll stay focused and move from block of time to time. That's what tempo patrol. is to the tactical plan going back to your question. The strategy is the what tactics are the how you're going to convert those into box time on your calendar and established that you're going to control the tempo you either control the tempo. The tempo controls you right and preparations the answer there that's the difference between the two and then you're six one. Is Touch points touch points so the blocks of time that are on your counter, some of it is perhaps some of it is research, right but you better have enough blocks at times that are actually executing outbound touch points towards your target audience right and there's a variety of different types of touch points There's phone calls emails there's linked in in. Males or social outreach there's meetings, right there's scheduled calls there's proposal presentations, right? So there's a variety of touch points in part of the preparation for your tactical plan you're thinking through what are all the meaningful touch points that makes sense for my business and better make sure I have time dedicated to that and I know how to get those touch points. This is incredible and as I warned, you right upfront you're gonNA listen to this a second time. You can do that by going to conscious millionaire's show dot com whether you're listening to the podcast or radio that's always your headquarters and you can click on today's show make your sales pop.

Again. Go to conscious Nowy dot com forward slash accelerator, formula. Welcome back on your coach jv chrome the third, and I'm here with Sean picket who was a sales growth specialist and we've been discussing how to make your sales pop a right now, I want to congratulate you for showing up because you didn't short for JV you didn't show up for Sean you showed up for yourself and I believe you're here because you're ready to take another step forward on your path to becoming a conscious millionaire to impacting the world at a bigger level and making the prophets and enjoying the financial freedom. That will give you the lifestyle you want knowing that you've helped more people and that's the journey were on together, and now it's time for the conscious millionaire questions. So Sean, I want you to imagine tomorrow you're getting on that trip to Mars, but to going to have to go into hibernation for a while and so this is your last opportunity. I want you to bring it the best of the best while you talk to US earthlings about your three golden nuggets. Great. So three golden nuggets the first one is narrow the focus. Too, many people I see when I go and coach them are chasing too many things right and so narrow that focus to notice I said three campaigns. We narrow everything down to the power of three studies. Show that the human brain can retain three new concepts when when your focus on her I present presented highly likely to forget all four or more if you're presenting more than three. So now the focus to something you could actually execute on number two is having. In everything you do obviously I need my company's stills integrity for a reason. And integrity really means two things doing the right things in doing those right things. The right way in notice my model is very systematic the sixteen it's all about making your sales pop. So that's an integrity based approach, and then the third one, the first to really lead to the Third One, which is leveraged that pop methodology preparation organization productivity whenever any of my customers get overwhelmed I say just slow down look back at pop think of my sales pop what am I not doing out of these three typically it's the keystone habit the first one I'm probably not prepared some feeling overwhelmed. To start there, Sean, that's incredible. I. Love Your Three Golden Nuggets. What's up book that you'd recommend for coaches and consultants I got a great one here that I love in. This is a mantra repeat time and time again in the title of the book, which is this behavior never lies. The author is Richard Flint he's author speaker trainer and he's a life coach very dynamic individual and he says don't listen to what people say talk a good game watch their behavior because behavior never lie. So I live by that BNL mantra every single day. Well you can get a link to that and everything in the show notes from today's show at conscious millionaire show dot com just click on today's show make your sales pop and now you know in my book conscious millionaire Grow Your Business by making a difference I, talk about the new half to making your your I know it's not just about the money it's about making a big impact that leads to the big profits. So Sean, what is it that you do in Your Business and focus on to always get a positive impact with your clients It's really three things surprise surprise I teach them discipline integrity in personal accountability. Those are the three greatest gifts I can I can impart on someone because if they're disciplined, they have integrity based approach they're doing the right things right and doing it the right way they have integrity in the way they're doing that. But most importantly, if they take personal accountability, there's lots of setbacks and sales, right? There's a single rejection. And objections you don't win every deal so that could really get you down. If you're hearing a lot more knows in that happens in entrepreneurship for your audience, right coaches, consultants, etc but that personal accountability what can I do would take accountability to understand what can I do to influence a more positive outcome in the future right and so it's it's those three things disciplined integrity and personal accountability is the positive impact. And Sean I know they're probably a lot of people listening today that like to reach out and connect with you. What's the number one way to do that? The mothership is I call it is my website sales integrity, dot, com sales integrity, dot com in the upper writer, all the links to all my social networks where you can connect with me there in the upper left, there's the link to my podcast Seals Integrity podcast in licensing program in the contact form sends an email directly to me as well so I get that in addition mateen great and you can also go to conscious millionaire's show. Dot Com Click on the day's show. So if you're writing, you don't get that all down. That's okay or you're at the gym, just go to conscious Muneer showed com. We'll have all those links for you and now folks yes, it's time for the forty eight hour challenge. We're not. GonNa. Put you in handcuffs and underwater like Houdini, but we're just GonNa, put you on the hot seat how are you going to attract and ultimately close a high? Paying client in forty, eight hours, forty eight hours. That's that's that's tight. Right. But I mean, for that, I work really really well and I call it. It's one of the strategies I teach my clients is called conducting a network sift conducting a network zipped. So here's what you could do and everyone can do this. Any type of business first thing I do is I would identify top five clients when I say clients in my case the. CEO's presidents, founders of these tech companies, right. So I would identify my top five I would then go plug them into Lincoln sales navigator I would do one by one I put the first name in, and then what you can do is run in advance search on and sales navigator against their network. The reason why you're going to sift through their network of contacts in there's parameters their filters at you can narrow it down to your ideal customer. Criteria so I'm looking for other peers of there's at run tech companies in my case, right? So I'm going to narrow it down and I'm going to find three identify three to five of their peers, and I'm going to save those as leads in tag to the name. You can use the tagging feature within sales navigator I'm going to tag them to the name of the original client of mine so I know who who belongs to. who like who's going to facilitate the INTRO next? I would reach out to the five top clients after I conducted that network sift exercise in. I would. I would go sit down with them and I would walk them sue each of the three to five people in saying I would like an introduction to them and here's why in furthermore I would provide them the actual text I would already write out the introduction email for them to send and I would ask them for do you know them? Yes or no? Would you be willing to facilitate an intro yesterday now and if so I've already done the Legwork, just copy paste editing, send these emails and I'll take it from there but I'd like a personal recommendation for each and so that's a strong endorsement. You know your clients, your best clients are probably going to birds of a feather flock together no others they facilitate an interview and I. Found that my sales cycles are dramatically shorter when I'm recommended by my top clients appear level referrals and introductions, and if I go sit down with those folks I'm going to close up probably if you do the math three to five, looking at fifteen to twenty, five referrals I get I. should close at least one of those. Fairly quick. I. Think you're going to close more than one I have confidence you're going to close at least three shot. 'cause threes your number, and by the way it's mined number as well. You know what is a problem or challenge that you're focused on in your business? Yes. So for my business like looking at it internally, there's really two that are interrelated. One is I'm trying to finish up and publish my first book I've never written a book before had been writing a book titled Prospecting On. Purpose Very. Very close to being finished, gotTa go to editing next month in looking published that in the second quarter, and then what quarterly with that is is launching my online university known as sales integrity you were sales and university, and that should be out in in conjunction with the book, they're going to correlate with one another and we'll have online courses about our sales achievement framework prospecting on purpose program. I love the problems, and as always you've chosen problems that are designed to get you to the next level. Now I WANNA, go back in time who is a top mentor of Yours and where are you going to be? Grateful that they taught you. So it would be my mom and dad equally The bow taught me sales and entrepreneurship because they're both in that. But my mom, you know, individually, my mom taught me persistence in that. The squeaky wheel gets the Grease in my dad taught me integrity and leadership, and that brings us to the legacy that you WanNa leave what is that Sean? The legacy and I always kind of joke about this with everyone. So but I call it virtual Sean I wanNA leave Virtual Sean as the legacy through my podcast the book that's forthcoming sales, integrity university, the videos that are out there. So basically I WANNA be here when I'm gone still making a positive impact through virtual sean. While WanNa thank you again for showing up for yourself for taking another step four today to becoming a true conscious millionaire and I look forward to connecting with you on our next show.

Chicago Dog Walk

Thursday 6/6/19 - NeedABeef69 Vs. KBnoswag

"All right. Bang, bang today is Thursday June six Chicago dog walk. So today I am bringing back a one time guest. His name is Nita beef sixty nine you might remember him. He kind of his phantom was wavering and barstool sports. Acog. Oh. Because of white socks Dave the whole mouse gate. We brought him on. He came out like a high school football coach. The guy was shot out of a cannon with steam today. He he still barstool fan, which I'm happy to report. But today he has a little bit of a beef with someone who is over at Barsha H Q in New York. His name is Katie no swag offer. Some reason I don't really know what's going on. But every time I go on Twitter needs to be sixty nine is coming at Kyle KB no swag. You just kinda ripped them for his what he says the morning yak and why he's not blogging off. I don't know for some reason, he's all under this guy skin. And I just kind of wanna get both of them on the phone right now. And kind of see what the beef is with need to beef, sixty nine. So let's call them right now and we'll get to the conversation. Yeah. Yeah. You hear me? Weekly perfect. I'm patching. Need to be real quick. Okay. Sixty nine how're you doing? Let's call it on our you buddy, not much, buddy. Our you good good. I'm gonna merge the call right now. K b okay. Oh, great. K b? Need a beef sixty nine Dave? Eighty. So we're both. Six this guy sounds like from Naperville. So let me, let me first start need to be sixty nine you have come pretty hard at KB. No swag is hard. Yeah. I just I just want to know first and foremost. What is your issue with Kaby? Well, I mean, if you really wanna get into kind of, you know, a little bit, you know, I initially really respected KB. I thought that what he did you know, with his fingers on the internet. I think it's hilarious. Sometimes my biggest issue is pretty much started right after he got back from Las Vegas with mile as you know, the whole cocaine this incident, not a big deal. Everybody has their fun. Hey. You don't do that. But the biggest he was what he came back. He was saying or well, may, I we're gonna go ahead and I'm gonna let everybody enough now from what I understand nothing ever been set again. And I'm pretty sure everybody on this program in pretty much understand. There's one thing I stand for. And that's when you say you're gonna do some you're gonna do it. Although when we start off on that note, and no longer than it's been said, you know, it's supposed to be left to the wayside full. I don't forget about these things. I think that anybody who's running from their real is the pussy so pets off. And then he wanted he goes on the game, which is probably time. Absolutely one of my favorite shows, and it was most painfully overeating episode I've ever heard. Now, mind, you, I would have not really said, anything nobly. I watched it actually, I'm I listen to on air as it lies that I happen to watch, or listen to a couple of hours later and it was painful it was Lutely atrocious. It was boys. It was it was pretty bad. Yeah, it was bad. And you really wouldn't even been that big of a deal except you know, everybody was saying, well, why don't you guys letting Katie know how he's doing though? I made sure I know what I have a boy said I feel like needs to be heard AK be ever go back on the fucking yet. You are painfully boring. You're not deal with it. One more time. Not a big deal left it alone. Immediately within thirty seconds. This man took my clear retweeted and came up with a list of Spiver, which things whatever it was as to how I thought shit. I wasn't. I did. This is awesome. Like that's his thing. Like I totally get that you have to understand that once you started talking, your fifth, people are allowed to come back, and I'm the type of guy where you go ahead and run your out to me with only that gate about down or think that because you're on radio with school. Then I'm not gonna see nothing back the ones that initially began. It was really pretty much fun from there on out. It was just. Well, how can I do every chance that I get? And I knew that he gets rattled. So you know it's, it's fun to watch. Kaby obviously, let's hear your response to that. I mean where you really what I can do you have a name that I call this is need a beef. Sixty nine. What is can I know your real name? I mean you can't at some point I think that, you know, I think that we're now I will let you know, I will be going to the outing. So I'm trying to kinda keep things a little bit unrest. And then yeah, but you're gonna have point. I it's, it's all out. You're going to break out the in the non show, Zachary. Exactly. That's what happened to me. Dagoes all I was on the are still team for like six months, and no one even knew who. I was what I looked like until I got to Vegas. So it's, it's kind of a nerve wracking situation, hit me up to you needed vice, but as far as the, the cocaine shit. I mean have you got? No, man. I mean, we all got no, you know, you know, barstool folklore about this home weekend. King out of your health and your lead on radio. You said, I will tell everybody did. Yeah. And I didn't lie you don't fucking forget. Yeah. I mean I mean people. Yeah. Some people care. Some people don't sure sure if I gain haters, for that it's worth it. Because I honestly I wanted to clear that from my name, I mean, being x number. Relieve your neighbor, right? No. But like being when they were pressing me when I got back about yo, tell us everything happens. And you know I got my family in on the fucking shit. I don't want. I don't wanna talk about cocaine on air. So I. I wouldn't let go never you never. Did you bring that up to me what specifically about you going, and I didn't know I didn't know that's why you ate it because of that. Oh, no, no, no. Don't get me wrong. I don't hate you. I think that if you're gonna play the game and you're going to be the internet troll, and you're gonna be the man. Yeah, you're talking that when do it back, you have to be able to say, you know, okay, either one, I deserve this or to at least where he's coming from because I do every day job. So, you know, go through all that, and then be like, all guy loser be fucking shit. Yeah. I mean, now there's no issues, you said you told me what you think I stocked, which is a subjective opinion. And then I heard you and I told you why thank you. So given information based on. I just think like anonymous people who, like harass others are losers. I don't hate it. I'm glad that you came back. Like, I, I'm glad that you talk your shit and talk, my shit back. I don't know what the bigger issue is to be honest, not. I mean. I mean. Right now. Right now. It's like you, you think I'm terrible on radio, including guys can I just say, I own you is when I think I think. Golly. Here. My, here's the deal you came, you win. Like the morning breakfast. Coughing. Guess what I own you because now since you said that I was officially brought on to the ACS fourth chair. So I'm gonna be on the show every day, and you're going to be obsessively listening in this kind of crazy, I would've over every chain fucked up. I just call you out if I I'm gonna be no cave days. I'm. Kaby QB. Do you want to be held accountable by people? Like is this something that you're okay with do something to the need to beef sixty nine of the world? There is like there's a bunch of people every day. Joe like you suck for this reason. Or or you just suck in there. All usually like anonymous trolls, or you know, nobody's. But I don't care. I'm not going to be, but I'm gonna come back then sometimes, but I'm with jokes them with the same energy need to be sixty nine at the same time. Need to be six. Don't you think that he deserves more than what two weeks? He's been on the kind of warm up. Again you. What's going on back there a pizza party? Don't you think that, you know, k b deserves a little bit more time in the active defines groove grueling? No, no, no. See. That's the thing is I'm not I'm not lasting his performance. You know all this, this day he should've had his chance or anybody else on the hill, but being who he is in his war in he school universe to be guy who is normal. And significally made out to be the guy who wrote the guy will make. And then the second I think that's that's where you're not being logical. You roasted me in roasted you back in. That's all it was. Yeah, but really it really your said, we're going to defeat me. And you're gonna decide a rat. We're going to never been. Yeah. Yeah. And I will haunt you every day because the is high it's going to be as what I'm going to have to do right now. I have to do it right now. Right now on the silently, defeating, you, you can sell you know, you are self destructing look at your Twitter, timeline. Your pin tweet is calling for my job. Your last cigarette. Route true are coming at me and I'm just like your like very low priority. Yeah. I believe that you're I don't you think you're, I don't think you're cool die. I think you know, I respect 'cause you're you're fan of my company. But I think. Yes. No. Yeah. And I'm gonna continue to be painfully boring, and it's going to eat at your mind because you're still going to keep listening to me, and you're gonna miss that you're boring. You're going to sink and need a sixty nine sitting here listening to this exactly every time that that was a fucking garbage though, for every time you say that you, you know that they ask you can't answer like ninety nine percent of anything that's ever asked you, then everybody's gonna tell you that garbage and every time that happens, you're gonna think, oh, listening to this who's going to be in my mentioned, who's gonna take today to. That's what I am is you enter time is rectified, when you when you tweet those like those mean things to me. Are you? What is your mood late? Are you? Are you? Are you an are you happy? Are you horny or do you have a boner? Yeah. Yeah. We'll we'll I it's like a semi. And then. It's a full on. What you aim to do because it sounds like you actually have a squad of people on your side, like on Twitter, despite your low amount of. Following. I know but you have people suck with you. So get them to start bullying too, because right now, it's pretty much as you will take orders from my son. So that's not gonna happen. But I'm saying if you wanna like, you know, help your choppier theory how to get more money. On the dog walk those playing and I'm an anonymous dude on Twitter. And you're telling me that I haven't won. I'm saying you should get some more people on your okay? My. It seems like we're not going down. We're not going to come to an agreement here. You know, there's not going to be a breaking of the bread. I tried to play peacemaker it here. So we'll end with this. We're coming towards the end of the show need to beef sixty-nine, what can k b due to get back in your good graces? I told Kaby straight up in forward, if you're to me on Twitter and on air, I will never hear from you. That happens. I think the only two I don't think he will think real. I don't think he has the gun. I, I think that you've been beating in that too many times. I really what truly the penalty or in. And if you just wanted to get rid of me at them all you gotta do is apologize. The one I pay four and came up with everything that he could to make fun of me, which is no problem that would happen. But if you don't wanna hear anymore, and you're tired of me and, you know, in a moment either am. I know. You really it's really simple. It's really simple. I hold on before we continue anymore. I'm gonna stop this fight a little bit. We gotta talk about JP garage. Janos JP, Donald subs. I'm sure these two guys that's something they could relate over. They could enjoy myself and have a good time. And maybe make up over that JP Graziano dot com. Go check it out if you enter the code dog, walk on a pickup order or delivery, or you get ten percent off. Then when you go to the shops. Eddie Cenci an extra punch punch cards so you get that free sub a little sooner. Like I said tomorrow's the day, eighty two the first eighty two people in the store. Get a free cannoli, JP Grozny, the best sub shop and Chicago check him out ninety one west Randolph street. All right. Let's get back to these guys Duke it out. What is your favorite blog of mine that I've ever coast? I don't even have one. Do you like my come on my talk about, like things that I like her? What is the that, you going, higher said, I love that tile child doesn't seem to the history list, they're still on me. Maybe sixty nine that's, that's a little unfair got some legendary blogs on. Don't get me. Wrong is used for a reason they hundred new for reason Larry on certain blocks is I wouldn't sit here and say that, like, you know, I have, you know, a amount Rushmore of, you know, of swag, blogs. I should really about it. When you're going, you know, that's, that's the only point that I'm trying to make like you, do you in your great any. That's the reason why you're dead, and nobody can take that away from you. You're great at it. Now, you know if you're if you're is just that I'm just gonna call shit. You know, on on the content side, you know, being on air and things like that, then that's fine. But, you know, I mean when somebody says something, you're panicked into why you know and get frustrated in all rattle and, you know, be down inside because guys put it now like I said, I been doing this now for a lot of leisure. So you are officially my son. Get out of this. I will I will happily release, you out of my custody as you are legal parent, if that, if that point comes to, you know, for wishing and we're where we need to be a mortar need to be. It's going to be rough. It's going to be rough in. I'm going to have to be here there needed to know. Absolutely. I do respect aby. This guy, you are very beef. Need to be? I've got a question for you. This is chief, so how's it going man, happy to have you back? So you kind of feel like you might be contradicting yourself a little bit here because you keep saying, how hilarious KB is he's, he's hilarious. He's hilarious. Also at one point in this conversation, you said that he should be given a little bit of time before. He's expected to be good enough or good as say, big cat, or some of the other people on the yak what I still understand why you're going at him so hard. So he's addressed the thing about the cocaine and then you yourself said he. That he's hilarious. So if he deserves time and he's hilarious. Why are you in as mentions every day about his art? So that's. Then you might be might have buck self in there. Maybe you should have to apologize. Sure. Oh, never fucking happen. Well, maybe water out, however, on Kaga. Said, what actually happens? I think I think it's families had enough time for the whole cocaine thing that kind of over for him just to be like listen like, yeah, it was fucking pound. You know, lines off some fucking strippers acid. I'm not that night. Whatever he could get over that. Like I said about him being good at his job. He is at his job. He's a great writer on the internet. But when he built into the content side of being on the radio in being face to face with radio listeners, and still, he's and things like that, and you're making yourself and your putting yourself out there. You know, I have the right to be able to say that you stop that your job this day. Now that I'm not in math. To say the back you or now, I sure actually I'm not I'm not the issue isn't that you've said anything back, it was that you could have just been like you know what, you know fuck I suck today. Whatever what you knew that you sucked. Everybody tells you that you sucked I said that you were painfully boring and you got buttered about now. Have you gotten better on the yet? Yeah. I do that to you. You've actually like open your mouth and said like you talk about things, which is really all we worked from anybody, you know, that's on the show. I mean, you know, sitting in the fourth tier is wonderful, but we need to talk about things for you to actually be relevant. So, like I said, we very constructive criticism to me would be to talk. Yeah. I think that yeah, I think that if your first stop bed that you have so many people running the mouth, you know, and you still praying. I mean if I'm Jack Speer, where, you know, you know, will. What shit, you know, who's talks to you? Today, that type of thing that's wonderful why you know, you have to be able to say, yeah, I was painfully bad. But instead, you got super butthurt about it and had a connection about somebody saying that you are painfully boring. Like I said, you are good at your job when it comes to writing things you're painfully boring. On the radio. The batter. Yes. Lee, yours before that. When you are whole thing is judging others, whether it's good or bad, because that's what you do. You, you know, you tell barstool employees how you feel about their performance in you. When you say something, you know, that's would only because vast I just wanna make it clear, only because this like it was put out there who now question, only one who's upset about the fact that I came back at you. I don't know me. I don't care. You don't I'm I'm not a static misunderstanding. I'm really not a set that just took the cat out of the bag. It allows me to just try to rattle your some more native. We're doing that each other. We're come in. That's what it is, who has the question to be show. I'm pretty sure with big cat or something. So there was one of the guys on there that, you know what point is big came winning. All right. KB will under the question to you, and then we'll get outta here cable. Do you ever see yourself apologizing to beef sixty nine on the show? You just eat at me. Eat at me, and it's just gonna wear me down, as you know, he's good at what he does, and I think I'm gonna break in, I'm just, you know, I care about my mental health. I don't want to this beat me. So I think I will end up apologizing. Do you ever see yourself having respect for Nita beef, sixty nine after this whole ordeal? I respect him a lot more, because he sounds like a well-spoken adult humor in, when someone is an anonymous troll account or hater account. I just picture like the biggest loser who can't proprietor of sentence or two. So I do respect you for that. Glad you. We had like a root, the bait came across way, more intelligent than I thought you would be so this. All right. K b I appreciate your man. I think you're good. I love your blogs. I think you're going to be a great fourth share need to be sixty nine as always take you for holding us accountable. It was a pleasure, boys. Thank you. All right back on the normal setting if you ever woman absolutely come to Congo. You can have a little. In, in person. Yeah. I do wanna visit the city friends that live there bunch now. So this summer, it's the plan. I'll let you guys know great. Let's, let's make that happen. All right, boys. You have a nice. I him. I week him out a nice day. All right. So there was that was probably these ius show. I did or lease your show will ever do I chose to other outlets talk. You know what I mean? Like let the voice talk, I didn't need to jump into much. So I just let them go. I really that was that was pretty simple. Need be sixty nine he holds his countable. Like you said, he does he really does come back bigger and stronger, after this dog, walk episode chief, what's the take your, I don't think need to be arguments are well, constructed in this, I think, I think his need a little bit of work because if he's saying, how great KP isn't that he's getting better all the time. Maybe get out of his mentions a little bit. It's gonna be interesting. I listen, I resp- I respect obviously, a co worker, I respect the show. I respect sixty nine wholeness accountable a time. I respect need to be honesty though, too. Yeah. So he's not somebody who's just going to say the guy sucks when he doesn't. So if he does think he's good. It does seem like you like his actions and his words don't really line up. But I do respect that he's willing to tell the truth as he sees it on the podcast, the cage match. All right. Every. That's it for today. We will catch you tomorrow.

Building and Leading a Data-driven Health Organization with Dr. John Lee, CMIO at Edward Hospital

"Welcome to the outcomes rocket podcast, where we inspire collaborative thinking, improved outcomes and business success with today's most successful, end inspiring healthcare leaders and influencers. And now your host, so Marquez. Outcomes. Rocket listeners. Welcome back, once again, to the outcomes rocket podcasts where we chat with today's most successful and inspiring healthcare leaders really wanna thank you for tuning in. And I invite you to go to outcomes, rocket dot com slash reviews where you could leave a rating review for today's show. We love to hear from our listeners count. Wait to hear what you think. So without further ado, I want to introduce our outstanding guest today. His name is Dr John Lee is a chief medical information officer at Edward hospital in Naperville, Illinois. He's got a background in emergency medicine and a talent and neck or technology is been a member of the physician committee on hems. He's been the chair. I think he's currently the chair. Is that right? Down your chair right now. Yes. The chair at physician committee and at hands, and he's just a very curious mind in medicine. That's also at the forefront of what's happening. So I'm so excited to have you on the on the show. John just want to welcome you to the podcast. Thanks for having me. Absolutely. So what got you started into medicine to begin with John. Well, it was actually kind of serendipitous when I went to apply for colleges I applied to about half engineering colleges in half. Premed colleges got rejected from all the engineering colleges. I accepted it all the premed college that was fate telling me where were needed to go. I love it. I love it. Yeah. That's a loud and clear sign if there's one. So you've been through the front lines as a emergency, medical doctor now, you're, you're doing a lot of strategic thinking as the chief medical information officer, John. What do you think a hot topic that should be an every medical leaders agenda today? What is that topic? And how are you guys addressing it over at Edward? While the topic. I think truly we're we're we've been trying to get to in with all the. Structural changes that we've put forth and put all so much effort into over the past ten issue years is really trying to get data to be a commodity that we can rely upon to actually make decisions in medicine. And heretofore, it really hasn't been that data really hasn't been that available. I think the initial rations in the first wave of McNeil us in the first five or six years was really about just trying to get providers to do sort of the initial obvious steps. So classic story a classic situation that occurred before EMR's when I would going through my training. Right. Is that the you get a patient in the emergency room, one of the first orders that would come forth from the physician was obtained patients old shirts from the chart room. And then particularly patients who had been here for the in our institution multiple times, there would be. She after probably about thirty minutes or so someone would come up with his cart with stacks, and stacks in reams, and reams of charts. So that's assuming that the patient was actually even seen in our in our hospital. And so, there really was no inter operability whatsoever in, even if the patient had been in our institution before the charts in the size of them would be just completely unconceivable instead, you'd look. Yeah. So you look at the stack of charts and you trigger shoulders and said, there's no way I'm gonna look through all that. And you think to yourself, I'm just going to wing it. So that's kind of where we started from in the first things that I think we were able to accomplish after high-tech was that now we don't have to get that pile of charts. We can actually get the patients old CBC or an old patients note in get it relatively easily, and then we also laid the seeds for some interoperability but really when you. When you look at what the data in information that's available medical records. That's vailable right now doing that sort of thing, Knicks sort of intuitive sense to the frontline physician, but going deeper in actually using the data to really change care. Get insights knowledge into workflows and predictive models that may not necessarily have been a pair of before. I think that's where we're going to go. Next in. That's where a lot of places. I think are falling short right now. Yeah. I think that's a good call out. John just thinking through, what is it that we could do these insights? If you had to name, a couple of them, what would you say some of the insights that the Scillies could start making on these EMR's? You know, a lot of people say, all right. You know it's big billing machine. Right. And so how do we make the billing machine into an insight machine? What are your thoughts there? Well, I would take actually issue with the fact with the contention that these are billing machines. I think. The infrastructure that has been put into place, particularly with the regulatory burden. There is an emphasis on that component. For instance, the oft used term note bloat, right? Which is a direct consequence of nineteen nineties era, EM coating, which is still persisting in still has no useful purpose in medicine. But it is what it is in makes no logical sense. But we still use it to the marked create these charts to accommodate that were, I think we can go is number one use the system to smooth out those rough edges. So definitely note blowed is an excellent example of that, so that you can create these very EM Laden notes with admittedly, not allowed of noise to signal, but you can do it relatively easy in that than frees up the physician's workflow and mindset to do other more. More productive things. So I think that's one thing that we can do with these technical systems. Yeah. The other is, is to actually get a unique insights that we may not necessarily have. So as an example, one of the big initiatives is, is sepsis recently. So this seminal study for this was a surviving subsidy. I think in twenty ten and within that study they identified the three key factors that predicted sepsis at a high level is the patient infected does the patient have serves of systemic, inflammatory response syndrome, and does the patient have some evidence of end organ damage. But what they had to do was to kinda dumb it down. Because that study in the data collection of abstraction was put together by humans with our puny brains who could only tackle a half dozen or a dozen data points at any given time. But when you actually implement and look at the data unfiltered in when they collect the data day. They humans actually consciously consciously filter the data so that they know. Okay while that person may technically be quote unquote in infected but I know that they're not really infected. So I'm not gonna count them. So it's that sort of filtering that occurs that our digital systems really at least at first past didn't out more able to accomplish. So when we went live with our initial steps of score in our digital system if fired for probably about a third of the patients in the hospital often. So what we did was we added other points of data to say, well, if the patient has a certain type of data characteristic. Well, that's significant because x y and z or that's not significant because x y z until what we need to be able to do is take multiple multiple data points that go beyond what our puny human brain can absorb and create other models to conceptualize insights. Knowledge in have the systems consumed that in spit it back up to us in a way that's actually understandable to us as providers. And that's actually were a big data cognitive computing. That's exactly what we're trying to do with these sorts of systems now. And I think that's going to be the next big inflection point of what we do with these systems now. I think that's really interesting, especially with sepsis patients too big deal. And sounds like you guys took the steps. You develop the system and then refined it, you know, went from one third of the patients alarming to now. More fine tuned. Is it in a place now where it's, it's producing, I guess a valid alarms? Yeah. So right now, Mandalay shins they do you know, the specificity is somewhere on the order of sixty percents, which is when you look at the literature. That's it's actually I think better than average for the awesome. Yeah. And is actually impacting our? The care are actual to expected, sepsis metrics are been consistently below what would be expected for quite some time now, ever since we put these initiatives in place in. That's the sort of thing that I think that where we can actually make an impact in the thing is that there's, there's a lot of organizations at mine included that say that they're quote unquote data driven, but they're not data driven. They have some sort of crew dashboards, or very unrefined data sources that they try to make decisions on, or they just guess, in, they don't actually make a lot of decisions based on your data. And there are very few organizations that I found that actually are in that category. Yeah. It's a challenge in kudos to you, and your team for putting together, this Zappa -cation to very real problem that clinicians are faced with patients have to deal with than it's pretty awesome. You guys made it. That specific and actionable and actually pulling from data sources that are reliable. So big congrats on that win. Give us an example of a time when things didn't go so well, and what you learn from it, I would say that, just generally speaking the issue of alert fatigue is still a very, very and still very, very president in our organization in almost every other organization that I know of in it, actually goes back to the issue of data in that the to do, like a pedia sate cycle, you actually have to study the key point is studying when I find in both my organization in multiple other organizations. Most other organizations, is it your operational leaders cracked the whip and say we need this alert or we need this certain metric in the new scramble around put something into place. And then it's like whack-a-mole you put do that project now five other projects up and there isn't yet a. Culture at least in our organization, where it's a regimented we put something into place, we measure afterward, and then if once we measure it if it's not doing what we want it to do, then we adjust, and we act, the S A in the PSA cycle are very much missing in our organization, just culturally were framed through across really everywhere. Not just you guys done yet ending. There's this thinking that described the, the cracking the whip people king about something in this. Well, we gotta do something, and then you do something it gets lost in the weeds out. You put an alert in the system and we've been reviewing some of these things and a good alert is something that has an actual response rate, probably ten percent or more, which is kind of sad, while circling back to the sepsis. We put a lot of time and effort into that in because we actually did have a pedia say cycle mull. Couple times multiple iterations studying, what would work in where it was giving false positives, putting the data back into the model our response rate on that particular is about thirty or forty percents. So, yeah. So if some yeah at as a part, right. And that's, that's actually what's missing in the problem is that there are very few organizations that have really industrialized in streamlined, that SAP part because the processes that produced it sort of data can be very cumbersome in difficult to extract. And then on top of that the people who actually are skilled at extracting that data often, don't have operational context. There's a CIO who had saying, well, that's deployed a project and the diploid is an acronym for designed in programming working as designed so a you told them, what Bill, they built, it, it's not functional, but this is exactly the Bill. Deaths. Contacted weren't. Yeah. Exactly. Yup. These people who you know, their sequel programmers you know, they don't they don't know anything about clinical medicine, and they, they don't know that a particular piece of data or set of data may not be necessarily relevant. But if in the data set so they included now. That's a really good point. And they build you jazz for. But it's functional, that's where the challenge comes in. That's a great call out. Yeah. Can you give the listeners John and example of the sepsis one was a great example? Maybe another example of how you and Edward have created results, whether it be improved outcomes, less alarms by thinking and doing things differently. So there's this concept, this knee-jerk concept that decision support means alerts, particularly interrupted alerts. But we have tried very hard to take tack that there's the whole thing about the four or five rights of decisions for right person, ripe time right data. Right. Where PLO so on and so forth. And so what we've. Been able to do is kind of push that alerting forward in the workflow so particular example, that we had was our compliance with a one c results on our hospitalized patients for patients who had not had a one c within ninety days. Higher. Tour electric system was somewhere in the eighty percent range. I think in based on what I know of that metric, it's that's about average though. What we did was within the mission. Order set we have these filters in place that than reveal a defaulted unchecked. A one c order, if we don't have anyone see result in our system, within the past ninety days. The provider does has to do nothing. It just shows up in it appears for them man. It's that sort of thing. I think in the now our numbers are ninety eight ninety nine percent as a result of that, that particular piece of decisions for. And it really is kind of shifting the mindset of what does alert what does decisions for actually meet. It's not something really trying to avoid in get away from this thing that pops up in tells you in slaps, your hand that you did did something wrong, or you're about to do something wrong, but actually hands something to you. That says this is what we want you to do before you even think about actually doing now. I love that. I think that's more the again, going back to your predictive analytics with maybe you didn't use machine learning or AI for this. But it's getting toward that route. Yeah. And to that point was very laborious process if we had true machine learning tools, it probably would take us about a tenth of the time. But most of us don't have that sort of those sorts of resources. You know, we don't have data scientist on, on staff at our hospital were not Stanford were not geissinger not day. Oh, so we have to do what we can do for sure not. And that's good. Example of it. And then once you develop systems like that, which you have now you have a really great foundation of. Hey, we did this laboriously, check this out, and maybe do some reserve some time with these people. Maybe they're not there fulltime to do specific projects at tie into the organization's goals, you know. Yeah. And I tell our BI director, I jokingly threaten I'm in the process of learning are python. Running joke. Be between us nice man. But are you. All right. Yeah. I'm dabbling just so that I understand it for it really does help having that sort of background so that you can actually walk the walk talk, the talk on both sides, so that I can speak as a physician to the providers in, I can speak as somebody who knows the technology to the analysts, and that actually having that being at having that ability to bridge, that gap really does help prevent that diploid phenomenon. That was speaking, totally. Yeah. And it gives you the strength and ability to pressure test both sides of the aisle. Right. I think that's a really good point. Yeah. And so, you know, we're, we're walking through a lot of these really cool things that you guys are up to really create your sharing that I know that, you know, the listeners, y'all maybe we'll take some ideas from what John has shared today, and maybe you're curious about how he got there will share, you know, maybe the best place to get in touch with John here at the end. But it's all about improving outcomes collaborating. That's why we're here today. So. Oh, think about some of the things that you're doing at your institution or at your company, and how you can make things better based off this conversation with John, which has been really, really great. John. Let's pretend you and I are building a medical leadership course on what it takes to be successful in medicine today. It's the one one course or the ABC's of Dr John Lee, we're gonna write a syllabus. I got four or you again. And these are lightning round. So gimme as as as snippet as he can. And then we're gonna finish with a book that we're going to add to the syllabus, you ready. Okay. Sure. Awesome. So what is the best way to improve healthcare? Outcomes us data use data. Well love it. What is the biggest mistake or pitfall to avoid using data poorly? How do you stay relevant as an organization despite constant change innovate the at the leading edge? What is one area of focus that drives all else in your organization really is developing? The analytics infrastructure. That's agile and can give the sorts of data information knowledge that, that our relations quickly, and finally John, what's the book that you recommend for the listeners here on the syllabus? Probably can I say to? Yeah, you could you could give us new. All right. Listeners you got you got you got work ahead of you. On the syllabus John's a John's teacher here, Dr and outliers. I think those I refer to quite frequently both in interactions with other people and just internally when I think about an things as a manager and leader in our in my position, while John and Dr who's the author of drive. I think that's Dan. Pink is the author. Got it, Dan pink. And then outliers is Malcolm. Glad while. Right. That's correct. Yeah. Awesome, awesome. So they have listeners, you got this awesome. Syllabus these two books. Don't worry about writing them down. Just go to outcomes, rocket dot com slash Jay lead. That's J L E. And you're going to be able to pop up all the show notes for today's episode as well as the links to, to John's organization and any of the things that he's up to us. Some really great shares on lengthen writes articles that I think you'll find very intriguing so he'll share the best way for you to tap into what he's putting out there. John, before we conclude with love to, you know, hear your share a closing thought with the listeners, and in the best place where they could get in touch with you or follow you. I think really harped on it before, and it really is about the data, and if we can unlock the data and actually make it meaningful for organizations. We can actually change your organizations than actually saved lies and actually save the healthcare system, which is collapsing really under its. John White, probably the best way to deliver at what I'm up to you. Mentioned before is is the Lincoln profile, and we'll share some contact information on the website as well. Outstanding so listeners, go ahead and check them out, you'll see the link to his linked in profile in the show notes. Go to outcomes rocket dot com slash Jay Lee. And again, just want to say thank you so much John for spending time with us today. It's been a really, really interesting and fun time. My pleasure. Thank you. Thanks for listening to the outcomes.

Thursday 8/22/19 - The Truth Behind Whitesoxdave Part I

"All right bank today is thursday august twenty seconds chicago dog walk guests today are twofold carl and their white socks day boys. How are we know silo. I joining silence. I'm letting dave go. I is shell. This is not the dave show. I was ambushed. I didn't know you were going to be so listen. You're not ambush before we begin since. I don't want to tell me how they're doing if you listen to the show you know what's most interview basis also topic based at bring these guys in you know the crew by now chief carl white sox. Dave you know we talk about some nostalgia with you. Know we talk about dave's big dick on the show. We talked about like i said the soldier with carl chiefs little conspiracy but at some point we've got to bring in behind the scenes here because we've been working with each other for eight months. It's now so this is a perfect opportunity to work it in. We had quite the experience yesterday doing a challenge for white socks. Dave and i kind of want to open with that dave dave. I want you to explain what this whole. Challenge idea was in your words. I'll try to keep it short. As possible big cat we had called him two three weeks ago or so and he said dave you should do a challenge every single week in like leave it up to the the listeners the fans the audience to pick a challenge for you to do and you either take them on or you. Take yourself on and you either win or lose and then you do a quick video of it to three minutes. Four minutes put <unk> out every week and there's your white sox challenge. I'm like yeah that sounds great so he challenged. I and this is prior to us. Hiring new camera guy shout out over there and he said that he wanted me to do the bears conditioning tests while after eating a beef from portillo's chocolate cake shake from portillo's tila hotdog from portillo's so the contest or the challenge was that i had to do sixteen seventy yard sprints and each sprint had to be under ten seconds so i'm going over in my head and that's a little but but the core of the challenge is what you said it was a social challenge who wanted to make it so as little teaser for the podcast right so someone would challenge. Ubiquonol was the first challenger carl. Does he have that right is that how was it explained to you. I i mean. I think that's fair okay. Let's just keep moving so yeah so the first towns just got so the gist of it so the first challenge was like you said big challenge of heat a shitload of portillo's into the bears conditioning tests. How did that go. It didn't go well. I didn't complete it was honestly the hardest thing i've ever done and i. I'm doing the math in my head sixteen sometimes seventy. That's a little under a mile and you're running wind sprints mind you in under ten seconds so i got through like four or five of them under time and then i'm like this is fucking miserable and i got the test from someone associated with the bears and he's like there's gonna be ten or twelve of these guys who don't actually complete tests who are on our roster okay so it was a hard challenge allies that the the the challenges are not designed to be easy so whatever you failed it and there was no camera guys nobody will ever did film at s. D. card was fried so it didn't come out so whatever so now we have a camera guy and we're trying to work these challenges in until the first challenge was a guy who challenged you on twitter dave. We've talked about this kid who challenged you don't even know where why he did it or how it came to be demons me couple different times and he's like i'd sit down on three pitches so i'll i ignore one or two of them and then i replied home like all right. This'll be good. I challenge will let's can do it so so i'm like all right. Where do you wanna meet and he goes. I'll meet you at knock park in naperville which is part. It's naperville central's freshman freshman field so i'm like all right. I'll see their matt. We're going to naperville camera guy matt and then. I'm like all right. We need a catcher do have catcher. He's like yeah. I could probably find one so i'm like all right. I'm i'm sorry i i can't keep it together. The idea of this kid bringing his own catcher. We should them. I don't want to jump ahead of the story but if this kid could have brought his own catcher brolich uncle gear yeah no. That's exactly what it was like. I'm thinking i'm like all right this kid. He's says he's class at twenty two. I use all right. Maybe he's like. Do you want pitcher something like maybe maybe he will sit me down on three pitches so i have a baseball port log instill from when i was coaching baseball and i scour the internet looking for this kid i'm like there is nothing on this guy he might as well have never played baseball and this after your accept the channel new partner i accepted the challenge yeah so in the meantime find catcher a bullpen professional bullpen penn catcher for the cubs and the white sox lead in my d._m._c.'s like i'd love to help out. I'm like perfect tv field. So what point are you when you don't see him in this database pointer you like. Should i continue or hey. This kid might suck this. Could i could be looking good that was there has to be worn out. At this point we are he had already been tweeting about it and everything and it was it was this was tuesday night. I started looking them off so you were stuck with them so i would you rather have somebody through like like i saw they just just before you jump in and hold on before you jump into that i i'm really specifically. Why would you rather have someone who is pretty like even if he wasn't on the varsity team us on the club team. He's a backup closer something you know. He's a utility fucking infield or something because i want. I mean you saw the kid pitching yesterday that that's let's get into that so carl. He's databases. He just a random kid off. Twitter didn't play high school baseball to my now any let voice mail on our voicemail while i mean that was a red flag when he left the voicemail so because i thought he was like fourteen. I know that's when i was like ice guide. Whatever comes out whatever comes out from here. I had a blast swiss kid. He was awesome kit. Great kids huge volume happy's a story he could come in and whatever he's a great guy but i would love dave i would love karl to describe who showed road up to the field i mean he didn't i set it on my instagram like he looked like a like a big bag shit. He was so i told him i said i'm not trying to be mean team. But you gotta understand something like you're on a baseball field. This'll be like if you walked into the roman catholic church and you just want to the alternative started drinkin- church wine. That's what you're doing to me right now and i'm the priest and i'm very disrespected. You can stay because i forgive everybody on a baseball field but like you're you're wasting. How many people were were there. Eight people there is that people your bullpen catcher dave talking about showed up with an entourage and people great guys great guys absolutely hell at howkins with him this week. This guy is this guy's real bill. He's got you know he's got the knee. Savers basis equipment yeah the catcher's real deal. He shows up to catch this guy who physical description but he's about six three to ten all soft muscle honest but i mean he might grow facial hair thirty years from now if he gets like some kind kind of allergic reaction prescription otherwise there's no way that guy can can possibly ever grow some sort of knobby hill from king of the hill and a little bit just servers. I'm trying to think of a good video. Hey hey hey shout out to this kid though because he's always going to be a sophomore study and education super nice can kid he shows. I'm like what your stuff. He's like low to mid sixties. I'm like did you play in high school. He's like nah. I tried all freshman and sophomore year like couldn't make the team. I'm like what makes you think you could strike white sox. Dave and he's a white sox. Dave socks and listen great. I can't et cetera great kids so let's just stop the disclaimers because we're not we liked the guy himself but for him to show often the thunderdome and he's going to you know we we got a call. It holidays right took it pretty yeah. I knew i was going to show me i. I was not nice are you. Are you fucking with them a lot but you don't friendly way aww if i'm fucking with you like i really like you so i need your description carl of his first pitch jesus eases fucking christ is actually the first pitchy through like in live action. Well let dot n._e._t. I want i want i want to go back and tell the story of chronological order but i just i wanna get like an example of how slow this guy. I mean i'm not joking when i say this. His first pitch was a called strike on the inside a day. He got it enough. Yeah ah please. It was maybe sixty two miles an hour. He threw he threw it like he was shot putting and then he did like the greg maddux follow through like if your dad ever all league it's like when you're done pitch in when you're in a position of field okay so so let's rewind than so we you're on the first field okay so right around the sky the bullpen catcher. Everybody's playing long toss in the field. I'm taking some grounders from carl and the infield and all of a sudden you you know a great humanitarian for university of illinois chicago walks up and he says hey what are you guys doing here. You can't be here. You gotta have a media thing and if it's online this is going to become a thing now so you can't be here. You can't do this here. So we're like immediately. The bullpen catcher piped up and he and he's the one who got you. I see for us mind you you hold on. Let's see i want. Can we rewind mike. Why were we u._i._c. Because we were talking about like where we were going to do this challenge right in davies like we're gonna go to naperville and everyone here in chicago. We're not going to naperville for us like we're just and then i told the kid locally so dave. Can you find a field locally so days like i'll find a field locally. We'll get it figured out group waiter so then. What was it like. Maybe eight o'clock nine o'clock something like that yeah. I was paul that they've followed through. Dave a followed through instead guys were on it but it has to be at noon so i'm like perfect u._s.'s best field. We could do this challenge yet. So we're all walk. I walk up the fucking. Field gates are open. I'm thinking like oh perfect thorough meeting because they usually don't those gates open. Those fields are locked on us. Those are nice. Turkish kurdish donated a million bucks for him yeah and mind you like yeah like we've done a stool tonight. They're like we've sat like we're integrated with you as much as any so naturally we we think we're going to go but like i said the humanitarian of the year walks up. He says hey guys i don't wanna. I don't wanna do this but i got it back up for a second so the kid jason in the bullpen catcher he's the one who set up the field so he's like. I'm really tight with curtis granderson himself in antient and the entire coaching staff. I'm in a shooting taxed so i'm you took him at his word. What else am i supposed to do so. He texted me. He's like hey. I'm texting wasn't the guy that we saw some other guys and the he's he d._m._z. Back jason did the bullpen catcher and he goes that guys out recruiting right now but he says no one's going to be there because they're out of school or whatever go oh and use the fee. I'd hold hold hold hold right there. Let's stop. Let's take a little break for an advertiser right now. You guys already know what it is. Dave what is it j._p. Grazziano api graziano j._p. Grazziano on a dot com nano one restaurant. How about the catering trays call. You were in corporate america dave. You're corporate america one point. How much would you have loved your boss bernard nice tragic me those can always with at the uh off the desserts rate at depository the salad tray during marathon. I'm a i'm a sales guy. Put 'em carb loading for the marathon. I would love good. You know good anti pasta salad the great so go get it. Listen walk in there goget catering trae. Go get the desert trek. Get whatever you want. Make sure you do it. Go online order use the code dog walk to get ten percent off on pick delivery to add essentially at the end. They'll get a free punch on your <hes> sub card. Get that free sub sooner j._p. Grazziano dot com nine hundred restaurant off. Go do it all right. Let's get back to our controversy for the white sox dave challenge so here's here's were people start to get a little little testy. I would say right. Dave like people were like and i think you are upset pissed so so i feel bad for the bullpen catcher like i don't know if there was a miscommunication or something broke down. Whatever whatever but you know we were all like what the hell we all came out here. You know we got big catcher's equipment. We got buckets of balls and shit and we have nowhere to go so naturally. We're like okay. Let's let's you know collective thinking. What's the next field that created a whole nother controversy because dave you're very persistent you spot with amount yeah wanna do right right. I want a mountain okay. So what in your brain made you think that that kid will mound would have just made him better. What was your thing. I it was more for the visuals of it. I didn't want to be on like a fucking open field. Where there's you know it's. It's not a baseball field okay. I wanted it to look good. I knew just by looking at that. Beg milk that that he wasn't going to throw hard okay so this is where carl you are hitching. Let's go to these nice sixteen twelve and it's not true carl's idea was originally go to u._s._c. and i said perfect or not seen ignatius save yes. It was say he brought that up. I was like there's also public park over here. Maybe we should should go over here but then carlin issues like you know what the brand new fields. Maybe we shouldn't go. It's not a brand new field. It's not a brand new field but whatever there's construction building a brand new field adjacent to that field okay so maybe it's going to do. Let's go to sixteen inch fields. Whatever but you're like okay. Let me know i wanna try ignatius. No big deal really i. I mean i know it. I thought well why the fuck we go there. Why would at least twelve inch but whatever dave said this is my video. I want to go to the place of the mount. You know i was i'll. I'll be very very fair. I was very pissed off. I was ready to fight with dave about it and he was like you know what i saw like. Let's just take a step back because i did. My thinking is like the easiest way way to get out of here and just get this fucking video to see. That's where i i got pissed. Is that you and chief chief was going to the cubs game. You wanted to get out of there. I are they and she didn't see the legitimacy. The video was significantly compromised to material respects. I the kid was was fucking bag shit as a pitcher so as soon as he shows up. It's like okay but the idea is being the real deal or whatever you're describing davis fucking off the table of course okay one gonna be other things like we. We already tried to legitimate route and got bounce. We all showed up. I was there on time on a fifteen minutes. I'm sitting in the dugout by myself not a problem but we already took a big stab making this thing. Fucking legit bag shows up and it's like fucked us. There's fucking softball fields right right there. We'll just do. We'll just cut it right here. And then we can all go our separate ways go back to our live start blogging again do our jobs and there's like ten people saying around so that's why i was getting worked up and then date but then eddie's like hey carl and because i was real worked up i was like we're gonna go trespass private property. They're doing a fucking construction project going on like it's just it just seemed like a disaster disaster to me and then you know what fine whatever we'll play out and i'm glad i did because we went over to saying patients. Carl explained to the listeners what what happened. We showed up at saying that we're walking up to the signatures field now. This fields tucked away behind saying there's it doesn't matter it's just a real sanctions as a really nice high school in chicago. It looks like a fucking doc in college. Campus probably the most expensive catholic the best of the best for the catholic schools cargo so like if you're going to trespass on private property for to do a video like this. This is probably not the field you wanna do or not and i'm not saying like. I'm afraid to get arrested or anything. Just out of respect like it just a nice fucking place. We walk up thurs a tarp on the mound and there's a tarp on home plate in in i know instantly that david getting ready to rally people would take the tarps off else. Yes i am like dave. Do you need help with a tarp book. Yes in my mind. We initially bypass like seven construction workers. I waiting to get the door. Shut down on us right there. They don't say shit some. Oh we got a shot but then i see the top of my alright lexi's banged this hour. Quick keep the tarp on and the tarp is being held with fucking six. Yeah we got so there's like old tires keeping these tarps down. These are old tarps. It's an old baseball field grass real long young again. Legitimacy legitimacy has been compromised when our there's no coming back from just leave your gym shoes on and just do it on the tarps. Dave you wanna do that. No i didn't i wanted that fucking mount mount and with how the field was tarp. It would have taken a minute piece to take the tarp so i didn't think it was a big deal so then i want to talk to the construction workers and they're like honestly. We don't give a shit but this is a hard head zone chart though don't you think of its tarp that speaks to the fact that they kinda wanna want to maintain some level. They didn't give a shit about us being there. They gave baseball coach. That was the guy putting in the fuck football right and that's exactly why hi there like you guys probably shouldn't be here. We don't care for film and video. We don't care what you're doing. We don't care if you take the charms off. These guys say these guys worked for power construction. No free ads because they they they said we're in a heart heads on. That was the only reason we were like they were on duty. Who was wearing. Who's the only one wearing a helmet. I was me they dave but i wanna pause right there. What would go through your head. That would make you think it would be okay to determine their field and just you know i didn't make it playable. It would have been perfectly playable for what we are trying to do. Would i doubt it but yeah but what makes it okay for you to do that. On someone else's property th i mean it's not it's only not okay if we get busted by saint ignatius. That's what was going through my okay so it's only it's only not okay. We're killing this dr baseball field. It's just a bad. Don't you think it's bad the listen if we didn't get kicked off the first field shes my maybe my mind goes into overdrive like yours david. I'm like hey we could do this. It's no no big deal but the fact that we just got kicked off someone's property and that's like hey not everyone's dying for you guys to be and that's what made me be like. Maybe that's a bad okay. What if what if the saint pat's ed's coach because i was thinking like if bryce catholics called the one i went to we i if one of our baseball coaches just saw like a bunch of grown men in their thirties like on the field recording fuck and come out there like get the fuck outta here. Yeah i mean i i. I'm pretty sure like shape has like random thirty year olds randomly play on their fields as it is so i don't mind i know what you're saying okay but i think in i karl wicked admit that right u._i._c. booting was kind of in our heads. We're lots like hey maybe. It's not cool yeah yes but the two are two separate entities at the same time you're right. You're right. You're absolutely right. Dave you're right and listen yesterday in the moment kicked out of a bar and then it's like do i wanna let me get kicked out of another bar or can we just fucking party in our basement like we already got kicked out of the bar. We have to be assholes again. Well i'm gonna get kicked out of stuff like i'm fighting with people bolla real quick real quick before we continue on with this whole story. Let's stop right there little long. I want to split this into two parts so stop now and we'll bring back tomorrow part two on friday.

Pop-Punk & Pizza #82: Punk The Burbs Fest 3

"Radio Real DOT COM ALL IT in three two one press blake deck yeah. I'll then renting radio up. Selling you can bring it was something new is is a is nicely shot uh-huh size. You're listening to pop pumpkin pizza on the radio. Would you judge me if I told do. I was drinking a white cloth right now. Please don't judge me what is going on shock l'amour from pop punk in pizza. Yeah Yeah I am drinking white claw right now. I did a podcast last week and it's going to be released. This podcast is going to be released next week. When I'm talking about whereas drinking the white claw in fact there's a live video of it up on our facebook page. If you WANNA check it out but the guest requested quested white cloth and so I bought a variety pack because that's all I can find at the store and it was just two of us you know so and we weren't getting enamored or anything like that. Because it was a week night so we only had I think I had one he had one and that was it so all these white claws were left and I thought well I don't have any other alcohol here and I kind of want to drink and so I'm drinking the natural lime one right now and I can understand why people like to drink these because they don't sit heavy with you plus. They're five percent alcohol at the same time and only one hundred calories so you know I get it. I totally get it. I feel like it's the alcohol for people who love Lacroix like seriously anyway anyway. That's that's enough about white cloth. I am super excited about today's show. I don't think it's probably very punk rock to drink white claw. I would imagine the most hardcore punk rockers don't approve of it but I could be wrong. we're talking a lot of punk rock today on the show because we have Caitlyn Edwards and Jason Jason Seen from this Awesome Festival in Lisle Illinois called punk. The BURBS is coming up this weekend. Friday the twentieth and Saturday the twenty the first of September. It's going to be based base camp pub and eatery and you can get your tickets. I believe they're at event bright DOT COM. You know they're on ticket web my bed if you go to ticket web. Dot Com. You'll if you type in punk the BURBS fast you'll get a link that comes up for the show so anyway get those tickets today at ticket Webb. I'm planning on going on Saturday hoping I can go at some point. In the day. It goes on all day long. I might not make it towards the middle of of the day but I'm still planning on going but anyway so Caitlyn. She actually plays in a really great band called bumps in the moochers. They are playing punk. The burbs and then Jason Sin is in a well known Chicago band called the runaround course bums in the moochers are from Chicago as well but they're not as established as the run around I would say more people know the runaround not to discredit bums e in the moochers because I was recently introduced to them and really fell in love with their music and actually we're gonNA play one of their songs on the show today. That's one of the songs you'll hear throughout the interview that I have with Caitlin and Jason we take some breaks here and there for for Romy Music of course we gotta have that so we'll hear from bums in the moochers today the runaround and also we're going to hear from a band called the studs which is also also playing punk the burbs fest and they recently reached out to me via email which I need to reply to right now about possibly being on the show in the future future and so I'm totally down for that by the way if you're listening I just got a reply to your email and we'll set something up somewhere down the line but you can look for the studs at some point on pop punk in pizza. We're definitely GONNA play their song called alien today. So that's pretty much it. We kind of go all over with this interview like we usually do in every interview. Pong pizza and I apologize in advance for how we talk about the Hella Mega tour with Green Day follow boy and Weezer because as you know that is a thing by now that's been announced. It's going to happen next summer twenty twenty but when I recorded this interview with breath Caitlyn and Jason It was before the actual tour announcement it was when they were teasing all of us with this Hella Mega tour and it was Kinda like rumors I at this point. We didn't really know what was going to be happening so we might sound like we're dumb because you're like wall. It's the Hella Mega tour. They announced it. You idiot it well. We didn't know that at the time so that's pretty much that pretty much sums it up today and to set the scene for you before we go into the interview was recorded at School of rock and Plainfield. Jason Actually owns. The school is one of the owners. I'm not sure if he's the sole owner we didn't get into into that but I didn't know he owned or ran or operated school of rock and there's three schools in the area which super cool Jason and I know each other from playing in the scene together. I was in a band called the projection and he's been on the run around since the day of time so we eventually cross crossed paths. This implies a couple of shows together and it's been a while since I've seen him so as nice to catch up with them and we had Vida Bellas pizza is what it was called. It was good. It wasn't bad it was suggested to me I had made a post on facebook asking hey what are some good pizza places in plainfield and that was the one one of them that it came up and I thought okay we'll give it a shot and I thought it tasted pretty good. I main argument was that it was a little too salty. I know pizzas salting in general and on its own but this was this was a little too salty but still a shout out to Vita Bella Pizza for making amazing using pizza all right here. We go yeah that game. I was like Oh blackberry. That's trying to be American idiot. It was just after well that was that was when the big screen defending knows definitely. I'm so I'm so so ready for tomorrow. No you're good tomorrow tomorrow. They're announcing. They've been teasing this tour like the last couple of days with follow up boy and Weezer Green Day what's yes and apparently evolve winless homeownership but well. I mean they're gonNA play mostly that anyway. Yeah we are recording by by the way so we can hear me mind working boy. We're all good. Go Follow Talk Shit. Tell us what the rules are. The swearing fine swearing's fine yeah. We're we're only we always gotTA remember. Don't take advantage of it because I know like. Oh why no one of your sponsors is one of the college station. So obviously you know that's that's yeah. I always a number three number. Actually I'm Jason's number two and I'm number one. This is because I remember it's different from what Steven had interviewed us. He had that Fuzzy Fuzzy. Stephen Frisky Moore's first recessions fuzzy. I've done podcast things where they just put up their phone and put on soundcloud and say go like I. I don't I don't like to do this. Is Zoom Zoom Age six anyway. WNYC has an actual cough wasn't for each station which I thought was actually hit the cough button. That's awesome awesome the radio station I worked for we don't have delays so like if if yeah and well we don't really have it's a small market because it's in Bourbon so yeah. It's not like we're interviewing the. FCC isn't following every move you make no there actually was the guy one time we were interview with. This is really funny. We were interviewing this guy. He was representing the private Catholic schools that does advertising with us. They always you know how Catholic schools are big fundraisers and all that so he was in promoting one of their fundraisers and he said Shit on the air and and I think that's hilarious that was tied into a Catholic school. He's representing a Catholic school on the air and he says shit now it wasn't me it was one of the other guys that was with him on the air but I always thought that was so funny. The guy that's from the Church church is blanked out and realize one through. I don't I don't think I don't think you realize it was just so conversationally. Just just like Holy Shit Holy Shit. Oh I'm good. I'm good for now so yeah. We were just talking about the whole Green Day follow boy boy weezer thing which by now this podcast is up. There's some news about it. This is being recorded before the big announcement when we can't when something's like you're trying to guess when this is going a B Osborne. What's happening yeah well. Obviously it's going to be out before the puck in the burbs. Donald trump is our president. Wasn't that long ago four years ago. Yeah really mess with recorded. I mean we could go that far but we know when the window is. I the rumor going around about that too or the Hella Mega Mega keep two or whatever the hell they hella mega good or something gone it on instagram and it's just an Emoji of Dwight. Is it away from the office just like what followed it but when I first started hearing the in the burbs for that would be that would be awesome because I'm assuming I'm assuming this tour has got to be twenty twenty probably because it's so late this here but together isn't greedy working on an album too. I think that's what they're dropping. Tomorrow is a single a single beep guessing. They're trying to time with with everybody. You said Weezer fall out boy to see that's why I thought it was a complete room like I but now they're actually teasing it from their social. Media Sites Green Green Day for sure. I don't don't haven't looked at follow up boys or wizards accounts or their website so I have no idea if they're to know just those three three yeah that'll be awesome awesome pop disaster thousand two that was wanted to go so so my my brother could mile. This brother went to any bought me a bought me a green day shirt from that show I was. I was like twelve when that tour. You can't go out and you can't go. I mean I went to my first show when I was eleven but this one in particular I couldn't go to so lors. Alber lucky boys confusion when I was thirteen. Oh my God that's bad ass. Yeah that's awesome. It's what we could go to well. I saw Joe cells first public show which was at a bowling alley and I've played Joe Cells last show which was at the supplies in Champaign canopy glow. Yes yes yes I was. I was like wait a minute. There's that one the famous well. It's been there for at least twenty years. Probably maybe a little longer. I WanNa say it started in the nineties. Dr Remember the dog and everything that's all my dog and I have not heard anyone bring up the dog and everything in forever guitar teacher so what happened to those guys tied into last fast action and then they kind of like they're kind of doing this thing. I think where it's like well they have the kings of audio which is Augie and Dan. Basically they do a lot producing. They've done a lot of local bands a lot of albums and stuff like that and I think every once in a while released their own thing but it's almost like A. I don't know how it's not really a ban but it's like a I don't know an entity like pay with us we do we produce and we make all these producers. I was going to say that that is kind of like publishing yeah yeah yeah similar but but they but they still do their own music as well to kind of this gray area they like just. I love the dog and everything I I loved them to man is still one of my favorite local voice and Shell album. They were a great band great. was that the follow up album. I think it was. It's didn't even know there was one because all that's the original then then they had one. That was a little bit It seemed more produce. The Dan and Augie actually did themselves as well to that was actually it was really good follow up album to but yeah they were those two were probably by. I two local one into lucky boys and Dr. Everything play together all the time yeah thrown like Sarafin. Remember them now the other one I remember from that era was penny in the Lou. I I'm sure they did the cover of the Grillo alone now. Yes yes never seen that like the blue man it was like the first time I ever saw band. They're like just took an old song and made their own and that to me was like that was before or although blink goes blank pump pop goes and got really into doing like I didn't either put. Scott got really into doing covered covered which was so cool because they see these horns added dishonest. Would I think penny might have had horns horns and then they became excel okay they. We're literally just like a pop punk okay so before they went. PX Al they were they had a whole sky was yeah. That's what I'm remembering remembering in my head but I remember this cover it. It was just like holy crap like I never it never even occurred to me to say let's take a song from the sixties very pop radio song and just say let's see what we can turn this like that wave hit hard you know but they were the first ones in my life you know in my small world that that I saw it happened and I just blew my mind. Yeah I remember watching that when I was probably thirteen fourteen years old. You know like just like Holy Crap Yeah Yeah. I never got got to see them play but I I remember I went to my first real big fish show and it was at Congress. They were passing out CDs at the end of the show perfect and that's how I heard of that and so I always marketing no. It's show to go to the place. I wonder if we should can people do that. Again has has out CDs. I think ever stopped happening because you don't really see people doing that do it but I don't I want I want to say it's not like a legal or anything you they. Do you think about how many CD's waste people wasted then plough adding right that doesn't even have CD players. Let alone listen to CDs house. It's more my car doesn't have one really still have a two thousand twelve so it's still riddick depressing thing when I got a newer car but they were Maybe you can buy some kind of attachment. Actually my trumpet player was like Fuck It. Let's just put everything on. USB BE DR just get a bunch of USO thing too. Is that still a thing. I haven't seen bands dude. I wonder why that was that was a popular thing for a short time. A I run around so far behind on all this just got into like those deal download cards. I guess you pass. That was another thing. I don't know if those are still popular either. The people people people enjoy him I was I did a solo show at two full cider in Naperville. What was it like Saturday and I gave people still bought like this CD but I'm like oh. Here's my new EP. It's online online digital download code and they they understood. What was there like. Oh okay took a pic you bring up like the camera whatever it takes the like the QR codes ban camp thing where like prints out all the codes and then you go to band camp and then download code okay. There's yeah there's a couple couple of different ways to do. It probably just depends on what company you go. I still don't get I it's funny because I'm GonNa talk about Pumpkin bars for a second here. Inadvertently only GONNA say inadvertently escape because we got over three hundred submissions this year for this for this fast last which that's amazed first year. We got like fifty last year. We got over one hundred this year just blew up and took US weeks weeks and the first thing I told Kaelin and maybe it's just like because because I am I guess texts stupid that I said no some emotion that comes through spotify. We will not accept because every Tom I click on a link from spotify doesn't send me to the song that somebody's just or it's like it. They'll add pops up like Oh. You got to download the APP to listen to the whole you already have the APP I had the evidence doesn't work. It's still it's like you listen to. I think you have to have like the premium or whatever I don't and I'm not about. They do it for somebody that sending a submission to pay the premium but yeah most some people don't and I think it's just better to I want to actually start asking bans. Give what's your most recent song because there were some missions where it was like a song from the just the eleven and I'm just so that we have to do more research and honestly honestly I. I said I know he sounded like dicks but like anything more than one click then hit play like we're not it's it's easier to many submission. I usually I'm in my car and I'm just like driving illegally hitting on my phone trying to try to hit play on the next song because this is the best way I spent hours between the schools and and stuff and I'm just like this is what I'm going to listen to these emissions and if I had to start digging and stuff like that like this is not going to happen I literally would next band and then we'll get an email like why don't we make them. If you want me to be honest I never heard you go because I couldn't get your your linked to work with like the podcast when I get banned sending their stuff. I do get spotify links but I always appreciate either like the actual. MP Three right or if they send me like a youtube link yes or or band camp he said Band Camp Band Camper Youtube because you guess it play right and they can send you can send the actual link to the actual song you want to listen to as opposed to here's our entire discography on on sue thousand two. We really sounded like this two thousand nine hundred and we sound like this and it's like you know. Which one do you want us to listen to. I will say those are easier to to to get two faster because I know sometimes I've had to jump through hoops like you were talking about the get to spotify or sometimes. I wasn't able to you know so yeah. It definitely is easier but that's it's awesome three use of three hundred page after page law. I've noticed just I haven't actually been yet. I'm going this year. I'M GONNA WANNA go on Saturday Day. Think is the day that I'm able to go home but just watching it the last couple years and then seeing this year. It's awesome of course you've got soon. Nami bomb and then you got Mr T. experience so like even your your lineup like you're pulling in some. Are I feel like I feel like it's it's. I mean that's not taking anything away from you know. The queers are boll weevils grandbabies. NBC's and tax the headliners yeah. I mean I mean to me am taxis the best band in Chicago. I mean they're just incredible but but yeah as far as the national recognition goes I mean everybody keeps sending us. This link apparently in like it worked out really well this summer. There was a release of like the top one hundred pop punk songs of was like the ninety s early early two thousand or something like that and both both bands song on that. Oh Wow that's pretty cool and it's amazing to because we're really reaching. I know Jason are like Oh. It's it's hard. We don't try to always get like bands that are totally out of state or really the Mid West to meet the guarantees but we were we were able to do it. I mean squirt gun came from ways away. I think their lead singer came from overseas and we were able to to pay everybody familiar with quite they're. They're like older popping a punk band from like the lookout seem like they had a song and mall all where they're they're big big moment not that they haven't at other moments by other big bowl. Was that movie with okay I was I was thinking like it's amazing though that these bands site on because I I couldn't even when when I was younger like a teenager I couldn't even fathom like opening for these bands and now they're like. We're opening it for him but they're playing our fest from all the way they they. I know that our fest is. It's legitimate enough. It's great enough to be like yeah. Let's go all the way over there. I remember even Messaging Salami bomb like they're just like because I'm playing riot riot fest like because you think you know because right best known for bring out all these bands that you know having flavors but like you chose us and then I asked them why and they were are just like oh we just. We thought this would be a good a good try. This would be a good fast. They just believed in US and we're getting that like people are noticing us. People are coming from far away way to see this best like I'm getting messages. I see in the comments like I'm driving four hours away. I'm driving all the way from this you know I think I remember even the I. I didn't take a plane out to the first one. I could drove his bike rodas bicycle like they wrote US thirty forty miles to get to the people are actually like really traveling from afar to be on the air conditioning and there's no do you know what but that was the one problem with the bursts best. I was like you know what I I went so smooth it was it was almost unreal. Everything started on time time at the time. It was perfect seen on time. It was like the only thing was just the like not working. We're getting lake that was it and that was the last year sound guys in our leads. Fire alarm goes off an hour. Play Hour with we leave. We let the thirty minute gap that was gone plus twenty minutes behind in the first hour of a twelve hour day basically murphy yeah because that's a long day soule them back. This is the first time we're doing two days. I would say it's a little bit I mean. I don't know that we could go backwards on this but I definitely know that. This is a little bit of I'm attached We you know we still we still just plus volunteers. Which volunteers are you get. What you pay for yeah. They're all probably GONNA give them. An base camp has pizza pizza beer. Whatever but yeah Yes so. It's a well we will. We'll see how this goes. We're actually well. We we jumped from one day. One Stage two days in two stages so essentially almost like it could droop hold the events being four stages worth of music for doorbell where we can get more bands to you said it's outdoor yeah because I know there's a stage area basically and everything but it's an area basically the way the base camp was set up really allows for you to have we could've done in four state has really like there's a whole lot outdoor area and stuff right seem to worked perfectly and it's going to be nice like basically banned inside a four o'clock bad outside of four thirty bed and switching off so there's starts right when the other one's on so there's never a gap as twenty walk. Y'All just right there so you could literally just pace back and forth all day and never miss anything uh-huh laws time for the set up on stage and all that stuff so yeah so cool well that'd be good. I played their nineties. Palooza twice at base camp. I think that's what they call that they just had this year but it was they have they had two stages and it was Kinda like once one was finished the other one thing so yeah so that'd be cool this interview with Caitlin and Jason Jason has just been a blast. I'm really enjoying. It and I hope you are too the first band we're GONNA play on the show. Today is called the studs and they are playing Saturday of punk. The burbs herbs this coming weekend so make sure you don't miss their set. They actually posted all the set times by the way on facebook. If you WANNA check that out if you type in punk the burbs it's fast you'll find that they've posted pictures of the settlers so so that way you won't miss out on the studs so this song is called Alien. They made a really okay cool music video for the song that I encourage you to check out when you get the chance it's YouTube dot com slash the studs music yeah so flow Manoa now if you breakout ah her again yeah Sir it but what I was going to bring up up to is is bums e in the moochers right okay. Your Band is awesome. Thank you so much. I was listening learning to I was like I gotTa make sure I listen to two bums e on the way here and I didn't know I was going to be listening to US Scott Band so I was like all of those a nice surprise. I had no idea the market better I had literally weren't enough people. We're assign worse yeah well. I'm told that it's not the horns that make it. Scott's the the thing of it. Technically is a Scott then. They have no horns but anyway no. I was pleasantly surprised because I'm Scott Fan and I I loved what I like. The thing I heard like six songs on my way a here something like that so thoroughly thoroughly exactly what I did what I'm taking submissions car I do. I tried I too like gravitate towards what I usually listen to and be like okay instead of listening to that album for like the three hundredth time driving really is the fall back doc because there's a couple of records right now are just like they're just concept. I'm like okay. You've got you don't have time to do that. You need to listen to these submissions but I the ask you whose bums eating because that's always question. I'm sure that's a question which sign goes running from now. ooh I love the name though that's an awesome team is it from Blues Blues Brother's okay. Here's how it began it literally we we. I am terrible at making names. I think we all are and are awesome. It is okay good. I'm glad it's awesome. No sometimes I you wonder if bumps in the moochers is a good name. We all have jobs. We work our asses off where you know but then there's we have our lazy moments in there. Sometimes we like to be bumps whatever but it started on the podcast like twenty hours a day. Are you sure he has out actually just got a job as the math teacher he he loved. Doing that is videos from all day people that do podcast gave gave. Can I think they call it a podcast but all they do is only to literally gave was like Jason. The Jet Jason's always in my chads two guys can get to know each other pops up on my screen like he's just like is there somehow he takes over or like random pages he he that's what he does because we'll we're trying to do. We talked about at the summer like sometimes like you've got to promote in weird ways you gotta get out of the shows in the scenes and promoting like other random groups like what's up Aurora or what's new NAPERVILLE and the ones. I've thought Oh man it was what's what's happening. In Aurora Abe is live hasn't from this or live video looking back on it and then he's like what's up Jason. Giuliani gave me talk about weird shed or we'll just talk about random shit not even music but I was gonna say so like bumps mergers like it came from when we started. We didn't know what I suck at Benham's but this is gone pop punks a what should we do. Should it be silly should be serious and we kind of did a mix of both and we realized like. Oh sometimes we're always asking like at the time we were like really young long and some of our members didn't have like anger something it's sometimes we blew up other people's shows and not me but we had a members like where like news who's even my guitar the old guitarist page sometimes she'd need my guitar you know and then. I thought well what about I think Chris came up with bums. E said Oh sometimes people call. I don't know if he said it was me or if it was Jimmy at the time who who was in urban bums e Oh. Let's call it bombs in the moochers like yeah. We're always borrowing shit you know and I it does. I was like people are GonNa think it's many in the moocher blues brother's yeah. There probably is some one's probably use using that name for many many. I mean if you ever wanted to change genres. I feel like it's like a perfect punk name but also it sounds like a roaring twenties nineteen twenties in the mood. That's the big band thing yeah yeah so that's but that's not that far off from sky. There is a modern version of the big band unusually swiping. They're not yet or not super serious. I mean neither are pop punk names but it's right exactly real big fish eld lake that way less than Jake like goofy names so while we're on the subject of bumps in the moochers. Let's go ahead. Take a break and actually listen to one of their songs. This is from their latest release that was put out last year called spaced out and that's the name of the record. The song's called walls which was the very first song that I listen to buy when I was on my way to this interview in the car is pulled it up on my spotify and I was like Whoa I love this so let's take a listen. Watch them this weekend at PUNK burbs fest. They're going to be playing on Friday tonight these walls for so long now. I tear them down for you. It it goes to the past a the report uh-huh the Dow fell. I okay yeah the yeah long long. Oh God yeah the aw them down for oh we could still be serious and hey you know every now and then maybe I'll you know mooch off some food on some persons house lay on the couch and be Abon me they played are i. I was a Scott Band called must build to cousy. That's bad as I love doing a mini tour with them. In November surprise surprise prize I might happening but I think they were doing school and stuff but now they're back and we're doing this three day mini tour with us also so they're awesome. That's cool. Oh and then the other band that's is playing as courtesy of Tim that is another scub- and see weird names. What land the land before? Tim Is playing great news. I'm playing punk the burden and then an okay since we're on the subject something to do as another hobby guys from Wisconsin's amazing. I know they've been around for a long time. I've never seen him live. which neither are they playing Saturday? You're playing Saturday. Okay so that's I'm pretty. Are you might as well Friday. We're mixing it up but you gotta spread the love around read the Sky Love Scott Punk but something nothing to do their Scott but they they're also not punk either. They're like this. It's like pop rock but it's it's not like annoying or anything like that. It's just it's so catchy achie- and melodic benefits with the sky that they play and they have like suits on they got like a gross style like a good stage presence the two-tone the two of them in Boston yeah if seriously I highly recommend them definitely playing lake I think before Radio Jio buzzkill Parker so yeah those are towards towards the Toys R. where I'm Super Glad Parker is on the show and I'm super glad to finally see them because as I became friends with those guys a while back and I've been wanting. He messaged me. I wonder if you are six separation because I think we figured out we played together with when you got wearing the projection with messed yeah and he messaged me years ago right after that show and was like saw you guys with masks like you know I love the band really like you know like trying to start my own thing up and stuff like that like just starting out with this ban and we always get work with cryer for producing and stuff like I get a message from cryer like two years later like Adam cryer. Yes boys and he he's like hey. I'm working with this ban. You got to consider them for pump. The burbs like Basketball Parker. I think I know that name and I'm like this guy messes me two years ago after he saw so messed got starting this band and then I listen to them like toll here the messed influence and stuff yup and they're blowing up man that band is like everywhere these days every big coming through and they're really super cool nice guys every like decent local Chicago show. They seem to be yeah just the last six months to a year so let's have another band hot. Alice is on and that's tim from Alastair Right. I didn't know about them until I got the submission and I'm like Oh yes. I'm so glad we got him on the fest because I'd like to watch these guys. I've random. I randomly saw them at a bigger show they. I don't know if they were they played for an ex. PX or who it was but they opened up for for somebody that MEX Alastair. Show I think actually had out hothouse okay. That must have been what it was. We played the Alastair ten year from from here this was that the here to suburbia whatever they're whatever that ten year anniversary show with yes in five years ago with them that was when they were they. They've had like these offset bands of Alistair that people don't even realize allister's like part of it and stuff like yeah because there's been a couple hot alice yes before there was another one Mickey Malania always like the drummer for every good friend of ours and stuff uh he's cool now the drummer for blood people another band great fan. I was GONNA say. They're an awesome as well. next year blood people who was that he came to see US play Liars Club a few weeks ago. We were talking about it and they couldn't this year for contractual reasons up but they're they're all about doing it when I go to get them. No super laid back like still pretty humble about it and stuff. You guys run around played not too long ago. I didn't I was going to see in your name. We hit the studio October fourth and we're basically the entire month of October in the studio for the new EP so you back with going out to always genus leanest Hunterston and and his twin brother Sam Mary's always genius et is Indiana and it's beautiful. It's on this like it's on this like the House Beautiful House with a yard and a full basketball court and it's like I you I was in the middle of cornfields yeah pretty much but it's a two hundred dollar studio. They basically took half. The House is yours. You do this with the type of thing and he's put ton of. I mean that's the reason why did the bands that they do. They come through there and stuff did something there recently like watch abandon don stuff through there but we did all ourselves in the city before that like every album would just go to city and it was so like stare at the clock locked up in this room. You might have a balcony you can go stand on whatever and Odyssey. Let's see like when we're doing our part. We're playing basketball playing with the dogs and the art like you. Let your mind kind of like get away from it for a few minutes. Studio could be torture and it's tested. If you have such a calm atmosphere around you just get away from the city and the stuff like that like that that changed our mentality and we just love it out there like we've been we witnessed. Is there dogs when we leave like we know the family yes for somewhere out. There was a single bachelor now. He's married with three kids. I think it might the four three or four somewhere around yes his life changes but you know it's kind of the same happened before army-installed but when we met I was single now. I'm married with a kid and stuff so it's it's kind of like we've been on the same trajectory. He was a lead guitars for or a stereo but back in the they play once in a blue moon like five years. Maybe it's maybe three years ago. Maybe they did a show probably three probably more accurate but since the last but I still that's that's been a while they were yeah yeah. They were really big in that kind of a border town area that was I'm trying to remember what the label was. They were saying what they signed to a label. Yeah I can't remember. I always forget what the label was. I can't remember yeah. He's a producer and I'm sure it was amazing. I'm sure he's one guy ever since the projection recorded there for our our our last release we ever did was out there and I've always wanted to have him on the podcast. Sense Dude obviously is just so a busy so I haven't reached out to him in a long time but his wife is his manager now assume he's wonderful perfect for that role because yeah south is tonight's and she will be like the book he needs a day off work three hundred sixty five days of the year just because he doesn't want to let anybody down and we were like. Negoti like like well so we really only could do weekends so we're going to be there Friday through Sunday but he doesn't work Sundays. I'm like we need doesn't work Sundays. You always worked Sundays for us. It was a funny conversation but we ran into a similar yeah that was that was like five years ago. Guitars used to last summer out. There used to give them crabs like you on banker hours now. You've got to be done by six. PM because it used to be three in the morning it'd be like all right. Let's call it a night. You know whatever now his wife's like. You know. He's done at six yeah. That's it yeah dinnertime time but you know what happened my own kids. I tell you I appreciate that 'cause he needs to. Everybody needs that balance that work life balance. Oh Yeah especially when you've got three or four right when you're when you're your own own boss like you know everyone says you make your own hours but you could also make your own hours of drive yourself in the grave to you know you just go especially in in in his position so while we're on the the subject of the run around let's go ahead and play what I consider their signature song in the first the first song that comes to my mind every time I think think of the runaround and that's Chicago so if you've never heard the run around before this is a great way to dive in and get a feel for the style of Punk rock that they play. They're also playing this Friday night for punk. The burbs Fest Yeah Report Report in I want extreme in class the last it put doc John Award in a punk the burbs. Let's talk about the so it's the twenty twentieth twenty-first Friday Saturday twenty the twenty first we start at five o'clock on the Friday and then two o'clock on Saturday to Saturday so all day bands it's twenty dollars a day unless you get tickets ahead of time which they're all over the place of like just typing tickets pumped verbs whatever or go to our facebook is prepared to find the but it's twenty dollars for each day festival which you compare that to ride fester. La Di what's worse than Mariah. I jump I didn't even I didn't even see the prices for riot this year is. I don't think I'm going honestly are they're still fifty eight. I was GONNA say at least fifty. If you compare that allows one fifty else forget it I'd rather go to the right anyway. That's where it's at yeah. We're basically trying to be the suburban version of that at some point be handed out three reflect. I gotta give you some but I'm gonNA. I'M GONNA write best on Sunday. I can't wait to see I'm gonNA see like white reaper. That's like the main reason going and maybe St Louis but I'm going to be passing out flyers flyers yeah. There's a lot of good bands that day a lot of good so I know I'm just going to be like cannon out so if anybody sees me there. Give me a hug and beer. Ask for the HUG I. This is two thousand nineteen leasing. Ask people yeah very true. I feel totally open in yourself offered as a random people giving random logs listen. I listened to the podcast you said like with this consensual I is is this consensual. Sign this sign this. CA- flyers take a flyer you gotta sign the Flyer and then yeah and trying to think of tells twenty dollars a day. Yeah I mean there's so many all ages is somebody it. Is this like just like year. One and two all you have to come knowing you what you're seeing obviously and if your kids kids haven't heard f bombs that you might. WanNa keep away and if you're living the reality a real world like the rest of us could totally bring your kids. It's a fun time. There's plenty the of safe places to watch the performance as opposed to being like you're than the mosh pit or outside like there's plenty of room chairs in the back room it. It is a family friendly as punk rock. Sky Gets parking free parking parking of course kipnes kids under under ten get in for. I think that was the number so if you have kids under ten get in free cash did no look seven. I look I gotta look at the last year event page. I think it's a big over this year. Bigger overhead overheads charge your double double because GonNa Watch them bringing your baby and then I know you guys have like have more sponsors and things this year to more keep coming through. Actually we just got this stupid Red Mirko. Oh they just signed on there really awesome. They were coming. That's everywhere. That's GONNA ask the most about afterwards because their table is de. Yeah I mean when it's a merged company versus like I dunno like a something. That's like obviously doesn't lend itself to being crazy. Awesome set up their table just like blue everybody else oh yeah. I. I'm pretty sure there. I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure there. At three fifty s probably a couple of having. I think a lot of their booth was pretty near friends asked me I go to Quebec. I didn't have cash on me last year but they so they weren't and then they now Lara. I'm like they probably have the best setup. Get a lot of us from it. They're great and then checks collective. Oh my God go to their table so we finally got shirts and hoodies and everything being made and he's going to have some shirts and hoodies like Irv some clothing for punk the burbs like there to be sold old but not many so it's very limited but what he will be doing is he's. GonNa bring his really like high tech printer and he's just going to be printing like I think like eleven by thirteen by nineteen something like flyers of the burbs posters. I've seen how this thing works. It's like so satisfying spying to watch you just see like all this color just swipe onto a blank white page and then it prints out so smooth and dries purdy ten ten ten bucks for so that table up. It's it's amazing and he'll have he'll have other bands merged to. That's all over and dumb What was it meltdown okay down meltdown creative melton creative that's that's actually on the band's playing germ. They're playing on Saturday. there's another emerging company doesn't amazing stories. They don't a bunch of stuff for the runaround over the years and not as colorful. I guess the one thing about the thing that stood out so much about stupid stupid rat was all these neon colors where where creative were meltdowns like kind of more true punk rock like a lot of the black T. shirts and stuff like that really really cool designs but maybe not as like. Oh my God all this all. It's not a side the technicolor dreamcoat I love the random is probably fitting. Yeah describe that's pretty. WNYC that's our main the main sponsors this year. They got awesome station. You're going to be interviewing danced strongest of this from the getting interviews there. They had these strongest just like satellite for college radio station in the country fifty miles for college radio station. That's insane. That's a lot actually wait. That does make sense because I I remember there. Were Times where I'd be like driving back from Chicago or wherever and like I'd be on the highway still like a good thirty forty fifty miles away and I could pick it grizzly when you're like because my inlaws live like an hour and a half like west of here and I'll go. I'll just hit like you scan on my in the only station. I'm getting an hour west of here. Nokia you know Q. on on the huge still w our waiver. WNYC for the win man. They have an entire building in separate standalone building that is dedicated to the radio station. I gotTA weasel my way in their in their to all the old bands especially bands I saw some. Am Dexia so lucky on there. I'm like this place is cool. I gotta go. I gotta he's on my way and I'm trying to think of course the summit sounds some. It's awesome recording studio in Naperville downtown Naperville. They also have like a venue beneath them called the one. Oh Five Live where they have a lot of new venue party brand new It's prior works for the he's one of the guys that you'll do some songwriting stuff with you you Charlie's the owner who actually used to work with me at school rock Geneva so there's a lot of connection there yeah cool cool people and they really are like bringing up a scene to there because every time I've been there and there's a show I mean it's packed and it's all these and it's kids that are you know teenage like playing at the One oh five and it's packed and I'm like yes finally venue in Naperville. That's really continuing. This NAPERVILLE doesn't get a lot of Aprilia for Punk Rock in our I mean punk bands that come from neighborhood right. There's this as far as like go properties too expensive. Yeah I mean Barn that was the barn was borderline plainfield NAPERVILLE which hasn't been open for fifteen years. Now probably was running a house when you call the waiting room waiting awaited them well done. I think so too read full circle here. The kid the wrote his bike to the first punk punked verbs is Elliott who that's who ran the waiting room that just literally had their last show like last week and stuff yeah on awesome honestly this is not meant to compliment. It lasted longer than I would expect any house venue. I I mean I yeah. I don't mean that I don't mean that by an insult like three wins there that house was I mean it was in a typical Naperville suburb and I was just I kept asking everyone everyone. They're like how has no one plane down but I think what helped was. I mean they said and I didn't see any there. There was no drug use or are like people draped and I thought honestly you know. Go ahead and bash me here but I I think it's nice the whole you know kind of strange thing or just people like choosing using not to like drink and do drugs and have that at punk shows anymore. I think that's great because I mean that's to me is not what punk rock is about like oh you know drinking drugs rugs and because I remember when I was their age. I get pissed when like a show would get shut down and because of alcohol drugs. That's the sound lab I remember shows like there'd it always be a show cut short because somebody got drunk or drugs going on and cops came but I think that's why the waiting room lasted because it didn't have all that crap and you know what the that's always been wasted. People were able to older now so people are able to enjoy the show to when I was seeing all these kids like they're dancing around their sing sing-along Heaven Fawn and I'm like they can actually enjoy the show because there's no like drunk or drugged douchebag or whatever just like you know ruining the show and then getting the cops call and now there's no place to play for music so I think that's refreshing. Now that like people are just choosing Haley. Come sober and just play music. That's about. I just think the age age range. That's always the worry with the authorities burst drinking. It only takes one. That's the thing one time that's why they got to keep it straight so because otherwise they'll be like well. You're doing this and right now but yeah. Kudos to waiting Graham for yeah for recipes but they they impacted the scene. They've probably influenced a lot of people to start bands influenced people to continue with their bands when they didn't have a place to play the timing of this one zero five kind of popping up right into the waiting room dies and they're literally five minutes away from each other. Probably it's it works out well and it's now in a place that can last pass the the kids who are throwing it you know and stuff and as long as they keep it all ages and keep it he would have safe environment than you know. It's a very good big for the for the NAPERVILLE and even the western suburbs e because really all ages in general have died since all eight shows. I used to be like fifty. Fifty like is this show all ages. Yes no okay and now it's like. It's assumed not well otherwise now. There's the in between two the eighteen plus plus so it's like you get three variation is one hundred percents all ages all day all night. you know they can stay for the not. GonNa get kicked out right before headliners or anything like that is going to be you know. People say all ages out to be out of here by like well. That's right before the band's. Does it have to rumors came to see you know. It's not stale night. No matter if you're a baby you know if you're a little too euro baby or whatever you want to say. They want to go home and you're like I'm staying. No that's fine. You know people bring babies to show people the babies and go home and said he was like look totally kidding. Take your babies with you. Please don't show last year like see baby too and it was like nine ten o'clock at night and I was like laugh at this or to feel like bad. Woodstock happened this.

Enjoy the episode Sir and here we are again again. We're back we are back in the saddle. Yeah thanks for coming on an exciting pre-christmas day so what I wanted to talk about re right off the bat with you. Is that so this episode comes out the day after the New Star Wars movie. ooh So you you guys we have a real good seats you and I have seen it. We know what it is we're going to talk about. We were giving you all a week. Then we're we're GONNA spoil the shit out of that movie because that's what we do. Yeah I mean if you don't WanNA listen to it then you know scared like Dr Manhattan where we we live in the past the present and the future simultaneous. I'm news simultaneously. Yeah we do. That's the cool thing about this podcast. That were omnipresent. But I'm really excited. It's seven days away from today. I posted a thing on our social media about it I'm not for this. I watched another Clip of it today. A Guy that I was deployed with John Ericsson. lovey Bud He sent me like a clip of Like a clip that they've released a apparently of the new movie and it. It's just about like Kylo ren going into this like cave area and you take care of of wonders unders. Maybe it could be retrievable. It could be like it could be something like that would be ours their if their next set up this story line like he's got to go in the star Cave to like confront has become a true set and he goes in there. It's like Tiger ads. I don't think there's online carpet you would like you would like that. Because you're like Disney and will smith popped up. It'd be great still haven't seen that that's so good really. That's that's really good like for real for real real. Maybe I'll watch. It is an Disney plus the okay. I don't know I don't think so I don't I think so yet either but I'll watch it when it comes out on Disney plus yeah. I've pretty much abandoned Disney plus except for mandatory on this point. Yeah I basically have two. We watch it all the time. I am because the boys well. I shouldn't say the boys I should say. Graham watches Disney movies constantly. We were watching brave tonight. Oh Oh that's not one I've ever watched. This is not that great. I mean bits and pieces but I've never watched all the way through and every time I have tried to watch it. There's something about somebody's a bear her mom her mom's a bear. She turns her mom into the only part. I remember. Yeah it's not it's like not Missouri like uplifting lifting. Does she gave. I don't think so like I didn't I didn't feel like she was brave at all. I felt she likes she was like a very much a coward. Howard in throughout the whole big words? Well I'm going to see Merita in about a month and a half hours I'm gonNA call her coward. Diverse verse sticker. Give her a sticker. Say Listen to episode fifty four and we call you a coward up. Give her just GONNA be like. I'm I'm in nineteen year old college. She's like I'm getting paid twelve fifty. I don't care but what was I. I don't even remember what I was getting that. Oh the the star wars thing so yeah. This clip was of him going into the cave. He's hearing voices And it was multiple different people. So like Darth vader's voice His Dad's voice palpitations voice. which it was not it is Or the emperor in this cave and he's like he says like I've been the voice in your head this entire time and it's just amazing. I haven't seen that one but I'll send detail because it's it's like nuts it. It shows a bunch of different stuff that goes on in the movie That one clip of him like hearing all these voices and like looking around. That tells me this is what tells me. He's going to switch because he's going to switch over to raise side and fight the dark side no no doubt about that because he realizes that he's been being used by someone listening the character arc. Yes and it led him to kill his father and he hasn't fully regretted that decision. Yeah and he will and that's won't bring him back to the light side exactly because he's GonNa be he's going to realize at that moment. How much has been used by somebody else for no purpose other than their personal gain? Yeah nothing for him before that he had felt that he was used by. Luke yes that's true and he's going to probably come to the realization that that was not true well was it. I think maybe it was. I think I'll see some some resolution there. Don't talk down. I think we'll see luke in this and we'll see some resolution there. I agree and I also think baby Yoda's involved. No yes how. How can you bring in a baby iota in Mandala late? That movie's been done for in the cans before Mantle Ernie came. You don't think they plan this crap. Yup Not that closely I know well. Then why do you bring in a baby yoga. That is before any of these movies are set. Do you think that Baby Oda is he's actually. Yoda like renominated. Know why it's impossible. Maybe that's species does that. Maybe that's just there's just two of them and then just a ridiculous thing like there's no way no it's what if there's a time he wanted me thing involved while l.. Don't start with the doctor who stores time dimensional jumps. Maybe I know I shouldn't tell you you're wrong. I think it's ridiculous but I think it's a separate yoder's thing and I think he's going to tie into this last movie. I think they did talk to each other. Jon favreau and What's his name did this and they talked to each other about it and knew what they were going to do? Here's a question I got is So so in the last Jedi Luke uses a known power called force projection correct. That's like basically what kills them. Yeah yeah but I don't. I don't think he's dead. But is that a dark side power I thought it was projection. Maybe I don't know Mhm I'll have to look into that. I didn't even think about that. There's a really good book. I've I've seen some pictures from an online. I WANNA get it. And it's like it's like the Djeddai or force handbook. That has all the powers but in it is like notes from a Soka or like notes from like Anna Skywalker like it's like it's a textbook that they use in their school. Yeah and it'll be like Anikin skywalker on a note on something like I could. Maybe use this in this situation. or it'll be like a so. Oh just like master skywalker dude and Blah Blah Blah Blah. It's kind of cool like I can't remember. Oh it's like the force I did. I force handbook or something that makes uncle. That's also yeah so that looks really good. It just gets me like so much more excited excited for the movie. Even though I was already excited and I'm in the bag and they can take all my money. I don't care They could all lay on a beach and talk to each other. And I'm going to pay more for that kind of what do I mean they kind of did that one. And it was great to hear the story about how The guy who plays a fin. What's his name Something Bodega John on Boyega Dagan. You Gendered Day. He did you hear about how he lost his script and they put it online. No you didn't. He had a script to the movie. Obviously the entire script the first group that he got he left it under his bed in a hotel hotel or hotel or like a hostile overseas like he left under some Abed of some sort that people people had access to and they stole it and put it online and magically. He had a Swiss bank account. Ten million dollars positive. Maybe but it was put online and they had to take it down like Disney went in and found it and took it all down. How does that even work? I don't know but it was online for long enough to where read it. got a hold of it and it was like throwing copies all over all over so you could read it right now. If you wanted to you could look it up and find it. Yeah I don't WanNa do. I have not done it when I heard about it. I was like. Did you hear the controversy. We should easy Ridley. No she was asked by reporter if she felt while she dealt with fame differently from her co stars because of her white privilege. Yes okay I heard something about it. I didn't read news just like thrown off by by the question. And she's like no. Yeah and then the Internet blew up right and didn't she respond with like the like boy. John Boyega ega trump. The exact same way that I did or has the privilege that I do something like that. That's what I saw the headline. Yes something along those lines do do that. Like why do people do that. Jerry people are dumb. People want the ridiculous story. They want some SORTA dramatic that Gotcha. Yeah they want a Gotcha moment and they think that telling her she has white privilege would be that moment when she's obviously not the only white actor actor. There are people of color and every race basically there are aliens at Star Wars. I don't think it's interesting though because I think it's funny. Many think I'm guessing. They caught off guard British actress there. And she's like what is what are they doing in America now what now. That's so. What was she found out real quick That's what people are doing in America it's money Speaking of this. If if you're listening to this it was a couple of weeks ago. We had Christmas Christmas Christmas program and they always have amazing auction. But that's my favorite action. Here in the world. And he had just the best joke in the world at the beginning of that snowflake thing auctioning off a bunch of snowflake wooden snowflakes with like toys and stuff attached cards words and different. He's like I can't see ever auctioned off a snowflake before I've met a bunch of them. He's like I do know a bunch of them but I've never OCSTA- mouth offer for cracking up dying young. It was pretty good. I took a bunch of snapshots of that because I was I was like what are you gonNa buy nothing. What did you know you? Cheap sheep bastard. He doesn't support our children or our schools. Okay well first off. Who bought the the SNOWFLAKE was it? You personally yes the trees or was it Harford firms. It was me personally. be serious. I'm serious I'd cash in my wallet while you're richer than I am. That's what it is. How does your white privilege feel I good I guess? What did you get for that movie tickets? It's got like thirty five dollar Gift Card to the movie theater. It's gotTa AMC bucket but we never go to AMC movie theaters. Where is an AMC movie? Morris that's an AMC more G. Casey not anymore. It hasn't been since like we were in high school but that was far Mike and now there's AMC in Naperville new Lenox annex. Nobody goes to new LENOX plainfield one time. It's actually Naperville but it's not in Naperville. It's like right north of downtown Plainfield What's the new Lennox? One is the one with the I.. Max Right Naperville plainfield one. Oh I didn't know that. Never been to any of those. It's a better one. It's good when a new lennox ones can up. Oh it is yeah. I thought like all I max was like the sheet. Yeah Yeah it's all good they just don't keep. This is an older more rundown movie theater. I feel like well. It's plain feel feel plainfield. Oh that's a good one. I know that's what I'm saying.

Yeah we got nine now. I think no no we. Okay Jerry I want to talk about a little thing that stretches mice spring boy would visit. This is a doozy right so I want to talk about is the worst subset of humanity took the most vile villainous. People that you can ever this is bad sosie with this is this is bad. This is the this is the worst of the worst right here And if you want to find out if you're one of these people I just want you to get up off of your couch get up. Ah For lifelock. Walk to every bathroom in your house and look at the toilet and see if there's a plunger there okay and if there isn't your one of these vile people really speaking of and it stretches my springs. Why like if you don't have a plunger if you have a plunger in your bathroom I mean I have a plunger in my bathroom but it's not next year It just has to be in your bathroom because a lot of people don't put him visibly fine but you have to have a plunger in a bathroom. I I agree. There's people out there Jerry. That don't keep plungers in their bathrooms. Why because they're terrible people but okay here's can can I just ask a question real quick? Why have you had a situation where you needed a plunger in someone else's bathroom it wasn't available absolutely you've never been in that situation nation? I guarantee you the majority of people listening to this. podcast have been in that situation. What kind of demon did you have? Come out of you sometimes of clogs it's man so you've clogged multiple people's toilets and needed many times in my life. Yeah that's awesome sleet take like tiny little rabbit poop serious she sometimes. Sometimes you plug a toilet and when you're at somebody else's house and they don't have a plunger in their bathroom. They're not good people they don't care about you. They don't they're sociopaths. Really is what I don't know if I can get behind this Chris I agree. No I agree with view that you need a plunger in your bathroom all the time. I don't think because you want to keep it under your sink or something. That's fine too. I mean I'm a small man and so I don't think I played toilets as often as you. It depends on the quality of the toilet. It very much does I. It has a lot of colours in my house. They'd never plugged. Plug those things. Well here's the deal. A lot of low quality toilets have the porcelain inside the bowl and just in the neck a little bit but the rest of the next. So it's like a For the Youtube watchers. I'll give you like some hand gestures. It's like a goose neck so it goes like this yeah and down you know and then it comes back up and like it literally makes like seven S.'s. Before it goes down to. It's not seven seven but it's close and those aren't porcelain lined. They'll be like rough problem that that's what clogs you. Yeah that's what clogs. Yep cheap toilets and no plungers. That's that's my that's my springs Jerry. Yeah the the the high dollar toilets personal mind all the way through through that that's right next system colour. I don't even know what minor make a good toilet colour. They do they make a lot of good things so so we had A. I had a bit of a disservice. Okay to our fans to myself to anyone that listened to the podcast. Basically we did the holiday. Is this a SNARF corrections kind of is it's a correction myself. Okay not necessarily you. I mean you have of your own opinions on things me personally. We did the holiday Episode a few weeks ago and I did not put a movie on there that I should have a person brought it up to be and said that this is absolutely holiday movie. That should be on any of your lists as soon as it was told to me. I realize I made a mistake. What's that it is? A movie called grumpy old men. I love with that movie too. Great movie I don't know that I put it on my list even at Christmas movie. Yes absolutely it's around Christmas decorating for Christmas. It's in the wintertime. Yes I don't I don't remember that they put frozen fish each other's trucks. I watched the grumpy old men when I was a Kailua constant I remember one of the funniest. Es Movies rump year. Old Man. A lot more. Yes I did too. But they're both Christmas movies. They're all set in the wintertime because they ice fish like crazy it. It is Walter Matthau still alive. I don't believe so. And who's the other Guy Jack. Lemmon Jack Lemmon yes jack. Lemmon died too. Yeah he's definitely not alive. Walter Matthau died before Jack Lemmon and then the the GRANDPA Jack Lemmon. Her Dad was alive longer but he he was He died in two thousand man. Who did Walter Matthau? Wow Jack Lemmon and then but the guy who Who Was Jack Lemons? Dad The KGO. I Ate Bacon Bacon for lunch and you bake them for breakfast. The Bacon for lunch. I usually drink my dinner. He was the he was mic in rocky. Oh Yeah I like the the coach. Yeah that's right where he said. Jackie la the jugular. Isn't even Mickey. Mickey Yeah well they call it okay. It's bruce baby he used to tell. Macoutes booby but I should've I should've put it on my personal top ten holiday films because I loved it so much I completely you know who that was. Burgess Meredith Meredith yes. I didn't know that but I should've should. I put on my top ten screwed up. It's a phenomenal movie. I loved it. I think you need to yourself over it. I feel like it's a disservice and I bring it. He died in one thousand nine hundred six meredith ninety six Yup so he wanted Jack Lemmon Day two thousand one also. He outlived his dad. That's all that's all I got for my disservices okay. Yeah it's not too bad I wouldn't put it in my top ten so that's fine. I said because I don't love grumpy old men. Do I think it should have been in but I just don't think of it as a Christmas movie. I'm not saying it isn't I'm just saying to me. I don't think and while your ideas I have had other people tell me that they agree. That a muppet Christmas. Carol is the greatest Christmas movie of all time amazingly enough really and I told them I was much people. Jason Serena He didn't tell me but he put it on facebook. It was the best movie of all time but I agree with them. He's it's the best movie of All Time Christmas movie. Oh I don't agree. Well agree to disagree. I've never been a huge muppet fan. And I feel like the Jason Segel like. Yeah no I don't think it was sad but I didn't think it was about what about like the muppets take Manhattan. It's good. That was a pretty good movie. I do like that one a lot. Animals always always been one of my favorites just because he's ridiculous. What about beaker beaker? For sure there was a guy that I used to work with. Beaker doesn't know that me me me like me me. Me Mean Burgess Meredith Of grumpy old men you realize. That's the penguin right. Yeah man from the original Batman. Yeah absolutely the sixty nine Batman with Adam sixty six. That's right Adam West and What's the guy who played Burt Ward yes. Brunell makes food. He does yeah. He's a dog food company city. Why wouldn't you do that? He's really into dogs. Like sustainable dog. Food okay so like meat and corn. No just like meat just means it's like against grains turns out most veterinarians would tell you that dogs eat grains and other vegetation they do pack and it's absolutely ridiculous to say that they don't because they are omnivores. They are on the voice. That's true a lot of vegetables. I found that out from a lot of tubers from my soon to be sister-in-law thinks it's absolutely ridiculous that people would say they don't eat grains because they do vegetables officials are very good for ducks. Yeah especially sweet potatoes. But don't give them grapes. Grapes are bad for dogs. That will kill them. Kill them if you give them too. Many gives them Carino fail. Failures sorta like attack their kidneys. Yeah interesting yet. Don't give them grapes. It's really bad because gary was like feeding grapes to Butch the their dog and she found out about it and she's like absolutely do not do that again. Like that's bad for your so now. He's Zahn great patrol. She really is. He literally like goes around telling people like. Don't feed your dogs grapes. It's the worst thing in the world and he used to have those grapevines by the shop. Tormo out so that Bush the grapes. That's pretty good. It's it's fun Lot Love trailers came out this week. Reaction to the news whereas regular news. Yeah we're definitely on the trailer news. I don't know about a lot I know about one. Two okay yeah too too solid Trailers came out that I have to talk about the first one being wonder woman nineteen hundred. Oh I just saw that. Yeah it's really good so can I just give you my opinion of it. Yes for sure so all right. Nineteen eighty-four get it like malls or a big the year of my birth. Jerry it is it is the year of your this movie we might be about me. Turns out so youtube viewers chime in. But did you know Chris is only three years older than me. Like it's unbelievable double anyway so hilarious. It shows you this trailer shows you what it's like to have wonder woman in a mall. Yup Fight People taught him all of them all stuff But I just feel like. There's like an enormous spoiler in this. It's trailer to throw out Google and I'm going to tell you but it's the trailer so anybody can watch it to throw out Steve Trevor. Right off the bat in the trailer. I think that was established though way before this trailer how it wasn't in the last movie they said he was going to be one of the main characters like longtime ago. They'd for this movie. Yeah well. I don't think it's really hit. Oh that's interesting it'd be. I think it's a clone like some sort of a clone of him by the bad guy that you see in the trailer. Because he see him like standing in that thing spinning around with his arms up. And there's like a blue light spinning around him I think he clones himself as Steve Trevor. To be close to wonder woman to make do what he wants her to do to like enact his own stuff interesting. That's what I think. We also released. Trevor you don't see any cheetah she's in it though is the Cheetah cheater. No that was from thunder cats yeah. Cheetah is a is a bad add person and I read a thing about that where they were saying that Wonder woman goes like archaelogy archaeological dig during this movie and they find this thing because of course a right of course she does well. She's like a she's like a historian. Oh that's true. She's like an archaeologist. Right yeah yeah or like a Paleo. Tallest anthropologists historian or something. Something I there's a better word historian but that's a actual profession. Uh No there's like sports historic historians like somebody that works in the library. She does work in a library. Maybe the library man. Maybe a library of Congress. That's a thing anyway. I don't think it's I think it's all fake. Don't believe trailers others. That's what I've always said. I haven't always said that I've said that for like the last two episodes don't believe trailers they're misleading. They do it on purpose to build a certain thing and then once you get in the movie. They're like well Bam something different. And you're like m night. Sham Lawn No. That's not who made this movie. Shamma Lamma Ding Dong made the movie at all. Yeah it's the other lady what's her name I don't know I don't know her name but I thought the trailer looked amazing. It does look very good though. Cool and fight action looks amazing. I think it sounds superfund. The soundtrack sounds amazing. Amazing and I think it looks better than the first one which I thought was a very mediocre movie I would say the the first half was really good and the first two thirds maybe the last third or like because there's like a three story what's it called a three act structure hat every story in the his. Yeah kind a three act structure. That's why I was saying like two thirds of that story is good until the last third where he gets really dark and ridiculous Very very I wonder woman was the best. DC movie that I had seen for a time. Wow what comes better than that. I I think maybe. DC movie thank DC. You're not counting the Batman movies. The Nolan movies now. Aw that's a different. That's a whole different tier man. What was the first one man's deal? Yeah I guess so. That was pretty good. I think wonder woman was better. Yeah I don't know. She's running across like no-man's-land that was cool. Just like just do this with her arms you. Yeah no I'll give it to you man. I'm excited it's pretty good but this one looks really good. I liked the whole period. Time thing. They don't do enough in the eighties. I would agree stranger things. She looks very confident in her ability in this movie. Oh Yeah I mean. She has a different suit. She has a different suit with wings on the back. It's like a gold suit With a helmet. I don't know where that comes from. I don't know why she has that. I think she has to go back and protect her. People like in the one place. Yeah makes whatever that's called. I can't remember well. I'm excited. I don't know when that comes out but I'm seen seen at. Its next year sometime or no. False Theaters Choon Fifth June twenty. Okay believe I mean the next ex- trailer I WANNA talk about. There's another one. That was way more interesting to me. GHOSTBUSTERS afterlife. Yes that is true. That is what it's called so. Oh this looks again. Don't believe trailers. I'm just telling you but it looks to be a little more serious serious. Take on ghostbusters and like a kid. Adventure movie I think it looks more serious and more supernatural and and more Spooky but in like an accessible way but a kid adventure movie but are you forgetting that the original ghostbusters was also like pretty like super. Naturally I obviously it was a supernatural but it was. Oh Yeah it was pretty scary like like for kids. Yeah absolutely it was. I did go back and watch them the first and the second one. They weren't like just goofy comedies. I completely agree but I think they're taking more of a point of like thriller. Yeah this looks more of a thriller. It's interesting the direction they're going. I'm not gonNA jump and start hating on it which I know there will be. I haven't heard a lot of people do that. I think a lot of people who have thought if they're like me they've thought you know what it cool. I'm glad they're like taking this different direction. Yeah absolutely that I really like. Obviously Paul Ryan is the best I was just GonNa say the kid from stranger things And being wolf hard I mean that's his name. Jerry this is name. I didn't know slowly cramp fin Wolford or something like that. Are you Syria view. Wolf's hard man cal I wish I could Wolford but Paul Rudd anything you put Paul Rudd in take my money. I love Paul Rudd. I love everything he does. I don't care what I don't care what the trailer looked like. I'm GonNa Watch something with Paul Roden. Luckily this trailer looked really good yummy. I liked how they find the old the old Echo one yeah and like he pulls the sheet off a old barn. It says echo one. He starts driving around randomly. Apparently it starts right away and you have all the gas in the world. That's pretty insane. I mean seeing as how the shelf life of gasoline is about six months. Yes absolute. That's about it and that's it and the shelf. Life of maintained battery three is spot six months as well. So there's no way that that thing I agree and I think that's a flaw. They should be run by Proton and protons. So wait to be fair to buffets. We'll dude's not here. I have to This is a trailer so he could be working on it. In the meantime I I don't know but they do drive it around all crazy But it looks like A child like a kid adventure movie where they start doing things and we know for a fact that a lot of the original cast comes back so although we don't see any we don't see any Bill Murray narrating though I don't remember I can't remember either but I know Bill Murray comes back. Yeah I know Dan ackroyd comes even. If they don't bring Herald Ramos back as it goes from the dead. What are they like ghost? But it's all based around of bank. Peter van Kampen. So it's his grandkid. How do you know that it says it in the trailer like she pulls open? She starts talking about her GRANDPA. I assumed it was a hero. I thought it was Egan's or no. I thought the shirts advancement. Oh I don't know when she pulled open the It said vanquished on there. I thought I could be wrong. Maybe it is a young well anyway would make sense because Herald Ramos is is dead and like you would do it after Grandpa when she pulled the like the ghostbusters suit open. Thought said Bankin. Right there well Anyway I think it looks amazing or I should say amazing. It looks interesting very glad. They're taking into a different direction and I'm excited excited to see how it goes doesn't look like it's going to be the same type of comedy that the first two were which is fine. I mean and honestly do you think Zule rule is apparent again. I think it is. Oh Yeah for sure because you see the lakes. There's no doubt about it. Yeah but it's totally fine. First of all. I think it's can be a lot funnier than they make it. Look in the trailer I agree. There's all rudd can't not be funny. I think they're trying to honestly. I think they're trying to go for that. Like stranger things by I completely agree and the trailer but I don't think the movie is probably a very much like that. I honestly I hope it is. It's crazy stranger things and I think I think David Harbour all does a really good job of being like somewhat comedy relief in stranger things things and I think they could have Paul Rudd as that killers. Lots of comedy and stranger thing. Yeah and I think they could have Paul Rudd. Is that character though. Yeah In this movie the and make certain things like awkward and funny while also being like Darkin demonized. Yeah I don't know I think there's a lot they could do with it and sometimes I forget when I think about ghostbusters. I'm like Oh it's not that old movie it's really old movie and I forget that I'm old so there's a lot of kids that have no idea so they would look at it. Freshman be like a million years ago. What year did that come out? The original straight. Yeah it was like eighty to one thousand nine hundred four ghostbusters could be. I don't know I don't know either but it is more. It's like we more scarier than I thought so. I remember going back and watching it grow. I think grady was little but I started watching it and I was greedy. You're GonNa love this movie and we started watching on nine hundred ninety four seven to nine hundred eighty nine for the second one and so there was quite a gap five year gap more than that. Oh five years in four plus five canal breath you're an idiot. came out right after scourged and he had a lot. Yeah movies come out his aides stripes whitey shack as in the seventies right was it. Yeah I think so no I think so. I thought it was like eighty one so so let's either way what so. Let's dance never mind nineteen eighty caddyshack. That's thought thought it was like eighty one anyway. No I think it looks really cool about bill. Murray had a lot of movies come out in the eighties. Yeah Yeah. He was a groundhog day. That's in the nineties. GotTa Be Ninety Three Ninety two when did ground Komo ninety two by guess right. Now when was any McDowell Ninety three I told you Yeah Auburn nine. That's probably one of the best movies. Remain Groundhog Day. I don't agree with you. It's very good it's okay anyway Next News I can't wait for the ghostbusters. Movie Super Excited for it and I'm glad at their striking off in a new direction. I know it's twenty twenty. I just I. I don't know winning actually comes. I think it's in the summer. Okay it's GonNa make all the money I think it'll be. I think it'll be a billion dollar movie. He really rip -solutely. Yup I mean is a billion dollar movie out of reach for anything anymore Well anything that's genre in franchise. No that's what I mean like. I think it's out. It's definitely reached for movies. that aren't genre movies art franchise. French is movies. I mean joker came out of genre franchise. Yeah but it was so independent and doesn't matter it doesn't matter that's that's the formula. I feel like it did matter for that one. It was rated R.. Yeah yeah that's crazy that that made so much money and I know wonder we'll make a billion dollars so wonder Komo but it ghostbusters hasn't been apparent for a long time. So doesn't matter I don't know how much money do you think the last ghostbusters movie movie made the one that was a farce which I actually didn't think it was that bad of a movie. I've never seen it. I'M GONNA say two hundred and eighty million to total me way more than that you think. So two thousand sixteen eighteen at ghostbusters. I don't think it did that well. I've hundred million I'd give it five hundred million two hundred and twenty nine million total worldwide. So my two hundred and over Shat net production the budget hundred forty four. They made their money back. They money back but not much. No not by the time you figure marketing and stuff like that the only thing about box office you understand it but they make very little of the worldwide sales a lot of that stays overseas and then also like half of that goes to the theaters right they. He likes split their ticket. Yeah pretty serious percentage you gotta make like a billion dollars to make any money on two hundred fifty thousand dollars budget movie two hundred and fifty million we know yes. Yeah you're not thousand then you make a hundred and fifty thousand dollar movie you could make a killing making eighty million. Yeah it wasn't solo like two hundred and not million dollar movie because they made it twice yes and put it made like five hundred million but it still lost and it wasn't a loss. It considered like the biggest loss that Disney May. Hey guess what. They made a ton of money on. What does it matter those people? They don't count when they figure that they don't count promotional so like McDonald's cups right and they they don't count toys they don't count licensing exactly sure they're making all their make everything a licensing. What does it matter? If one movie doesn't do as well for Disney isn't he or have to run every time like every other movie you've ever made has literally made literally made a billion hidden dollars. Yeah and you've made it for one hundred and eighty to two hundred million dollars and then you made eight hundred million on top of that. Yeah so sure your marketing costs. Maybe maybe be might be like another hundred million. Also you're down to seven hundred million you've just made and then again like you said you didn't take into into promotional like market like all of the stuff that you can make money off of it made Three hundred ninety two million but solo. Yeah that's not very good for for a Disney movie. Isn't that crazy. Here's another thing. This is like off the wall but I was thinking about it earlier this week and I wanted to bring it up. This is like a this is a sports topic a real quick. I know we're jumping all over the place but that's what this episode is is going to be because we're talking about money and there have been two signings this week in baseball where people have been signed for for three hundred and fifty and three hundred twenty four million dollars for one was for seven years and one was for nine years not all guaranteed. Though I understand that but one we're talking about signing one person to pitch a ball to throw a ball what is it. How far is the mound away? Sixty five feet. I think it's sixty five hundred eighty ninety feet to first base. It's closer than that but it's hot news. I've been wondering that for years. Is that the stop it. They're throwing a ball as fast as they can as best as they can as accurate as it can. I know they're better than everyone at it doing their job. But we're talking almost five hundred million. No I think one guy got five hundred million dollars. We're close to five hundred hundred million dollars for someone to play less than ten years for a certain team and they're going to give him that money like blink exactly so they broke it down on six seventy the score. That's a Chicago. AM radio station. That we that I listened to and they they were talking about Garrett Cole he got signed to the New York Yankees for three hundred twenty four million he played for the Astros very good pitcher. But you've got to really do. They were saying that for if you took last year stats. He's going to get paid like it'd be like a it was like eleven thousand dollars per start knows more than that. It was like eleven hundred dollars per strike like fifteen hundred dollars per ball like ah they broke it down into that type of thing and saying like how much money he would make throughout his next nine years and it's just unbelievable to me that people are getting paid this to play a game and I want people to play this game. I want to have the best players available to each team. But when we talk about Amazon spending five hundred million to get the rights to Lord of the Rings and to produce a show that we all WanNa watch like I thought that was astronomical. Now we're talking about one. Single person getting paid that amount of money who could be on a losing team to not do anything next here he could blow out a shoulder in the very first Gamer in preseason. Yeah and never play a single game next year. But he's going to get paid that that amount of money for the next nine years he could be junk. Yeah and that's crazy to you. Think about it because people like freak out if a movie cost like two hundred million dollars to make but there's like thousands ends of people working on that movie for like three years right thousands thousands and we're talk about one maybe tens of thousands of people. I don't know if that many think I think there's a lot of people but you're not tens of thousands but there's definitely thousands yes. I completely agree with you with that. You Watch the end of a movie now. If we stayed to the end credits you'll see a whole list of babies that were born during the production of a movie. And there's a there's like fifty babies and we're talking about one person. I'm getting paid this amount of money to play a game. Yeah I just. I don't know if I don't think sports are going in in the right direction with that kind of money. Sometimes I think about the fact that like how much money there is like how much money and like how little money like everybody that you know makes comparatively when you consider the fact that it billions ends of dollars are just being thrown away on stupid Shit I've so it says yeah former pirates Pitcher Garrett Cole has signed a record nine I near three hundred and twenty four million contract with New York Yankees he's GonNa make an average roughly thirty five million per year for the next nine nine seasons like I just think that's ridiculous. Yeah for a guy who starts once every eighty five days but whatever man I don't know they're making their money back they wouldn't do it and again like I want to have really good talent in Major League Baseball basketball and football. Whatever we watch like I want to have that talent there and I understand with inflation and the way the world's going like for the United States anyways but you put a salary cap other sports do exactly in the in baseball has not done that and I think it's a problem because luxury tax wchs for each team? I I think there should be a salary. What what has a salary cap does basketball? No football does right football. I like the idea of salary cap because what it does is take small-market teams and make them more able to compete. Although that hasn't really happened in football very well so obviously it doesn't look great but anyway you got more news Yeah I got a bunch more. That was a tangent I went on just because because I started talking about money and I wanted to bring that up as so think about that the next time you think about how much money you make you you know and then just think about these people you watch on. TV playing a game. You thought was a joke in school. Yeah and these guys are doing doing it better than you like ten times better than you and making ninety seven times more money than you are. Well you know what it's ridiculous for a game anyway and I love the game. Yeah to share his soul pro reader distribution of wealth loved. He just wants it all to be taken away and spread spread amongst the people right. I mean I don't think baseball players should be paid three hundred and fifty million dollars for nine years. Don't it's the free market work. It Man I get it. He's obviously worth it or he wouldn't get paid it. Not No I mean. Nobody's forcing somebody to pay him. That I understand at the market is dictating. That he'd be paid that and that's only because each baseball team has so much money available to them. Why do they have so much money because of how much they charge for a free hotdog but they still saw here or there is a demand for that stuff there and people are paying it willingly right socks don't sell out and they still all that money? The white sox are terrible. They're not though they're not well. Then coming up then they should win. Well I mean if they had Yeah they will win okay coming up pretty soon. It's not an issue. I mean the cubs are talking about getting rid of Kris Bryant Anthony. Rizzo that's stupid. Yeah that is dumb anyway next news. We're not a sports. We're not a sports podcast. Could talk about that for a while. But we're not a sports podcast next series finale Silicon Valley. Oh yeah totally forgotten. I did watch the series finale of they haven't been last Sunday. It did show that I've been watching for six years and absolutely love. What's your take? I thought it was absolutely terrible. I hated it. Hated every second of it drives me crazy. It ruined the entire show. And if that's really the end of that show shame for shame four shame shame. Shame so I didn't think I didn't think it was. I didn't think it was a terrible take to make ah somewhat in the future like Kinda liked seeing them in the future that I don't care about that was just first of all. It wasn't funny. Yeah it was super out of character for the show. In general it makes no sense. The characters weren't even on brand for what the characters are. And guess what it's not cool. Cool or edgy or hip to take. Everything ended on a shitty now. It's Natalie Ness what that's not it just fucking doc in ruins it for six years into watching something. So here's a note that I put down. Is that like I loved the show as a whole like I loved that show as a whole the whole show but it only works always felt like it was trying to reach a certain peak and never got there like it never peaked and never got to wear it needed to be it was always trying to be somewhere and then it would drop then it was trying to. It was like I'm going to get there. I'm going to get there and and then it would drop and that's but it always ended every season on a high no somewhat printing launch. Yeah somewhat and then this season it just was like climbing somewhere and never got there. It just ended flat it was completely flat. Everyone loses and it it just. It didn't seem right to me. The only thing that seemed right to me was that Guilfoil ended up directly next to each other and still hating each other but yet loving each other. Yeah I mean that's fine and there is nothing whatever but it just was really really really disappointing and felt felt rushed like it felt like a rushed Roger in an off brand. That's what put me off on it just completely because like you said that that show is all about failure rate the joke of it. They're always failing right in the end. They're always kind of having these successes that ended and to like like free things happen to where they have success and they're like oh well we can build off that and then this season it just was like no you all are terrible. Like why did I watch six seasons of this for everything to fail. Just I don't get it. It was either I buy lots of its hours. Me On the whole experience to be on it. It was very very disappointing. I thought there was going to be some erases so excited for it. Yeah I was too and even the style in which they made it was weird -pletely out of character for the show. I get that they were trying to do a documentary style and make it like a post log in and even if you did isn't hate that part of it I didn't hate that that was opposed. Slog I hated the fact that they were all so miserable and didn't get anywhere. You know what I mean like. The what's his name. Thomas Middle Ditch. He's literally working in a Gavin Belsen University. I I don't think that's funny. It would be fuck. No it would be fine. Okay if they made that show the way it did but the last fifteen minutes of the show were ten years later them. I'm figuring out how to fix it how to fix. Yeah I agree. That would've been fine like he didn't have to end on a down. No and you know and then I started looking at reviews and everybody's talking about how like interesting and cool. It was that they did that. Really what is it in look at with you you know. I thought it was terrible. It was really disappointing. Was Not happy with it but the series as a whole I would still tell the people to watch it. I would absolutely say like watch the first five seasons at least because which would then lead you to watching the sixth. But it's good. The first season blows all of them out of the water. I think very first season I think is the very best one. It's the best when TJ Miller's in it correct for what three seasons. He ruined his own career. Did you know about him what he did so so I like he was apparently he was very hard to work with apparently onset. I've heard that Silicon Valley. He was showing up very drunk and high and not doing things he knew and he like tried to save himself saying like he He was going to the comedy store in L. A. and he was going on the road and doing his stand up comedy routine all the time working constantly sleeping like three hours and then coming to shoot the show so the problem was he was drinking though too right so he was saying you working too much and others are saying like you may be working too much but you're also coming. I like super drunk to film this show and then he would just smoke a bunch of we'd try to offset that wasn't working out farm but the big thing that he did was he was on a bus either a bus or a train and he called in a bomb threat. Why and he claims he thought a lady had something in her bag but it wasn't Everybody on the vehicle that he was on. I can't like I said I can't remember if it was a bus or train. Train Claims that he was like overly drunk and drinking on the train and they're like he was being super belligerent. Somebody he kept telling him to leave him alone and he said I'll show you and then get on the phone and called in a bomb threat and then has been investigated over sense sense and it like ruined him because of that that was like two years ago or three years ago like whenever the show ended that it was because of that and because he was on a podcast after that talking about how he quit that show because is like his movie career is blowing up. Basically I mean isn't deadpool. One into right he already filmed those though he did that. Bomb threat thing and then it all went downhill for him well and he's kind of been blackballed since then I'm sure he'll make a return Let's see what do I want to move onto next for news there There's a movie coming out relatively soon called uncut gems okay. Have you heard of this no you haven't you need to watch. The trailer watched the trailer for uncut gems. It's an Adam Sandler movie okay. But it's it's not like any Adam Sandler movie you've probably seen before four so he's literally like a diamond salesman kind of like a jewelry salesman but he like buys and sells jewels. That's why it's it's called uncut gems but Kevin Garnett's in it like he's Kevin Garnett. Yeah and he's like a major Garnett no he. He plays himself. Because that's a stone but I think that's yeah it is Garnet Garnet. I think he's in it but apparently he does a very very good job. But what about all the all the actors were name. Had Gem names like Donnie. As what's the what's downy Emerald Danny camera and Joanna Pearl Billy. Diamond Margot Robie Guy. No Timmy Topaz Allen. Aquamarine I like I like Allen Allen Aquamarine. He's like one of my favorite dude. He was legit and aqua man. Yeah you WANNA see some acting. Yeah talk to Mr Aquamarine for sure. That guy and Margo Ruby Hill Act Tilles blue in the face anyway. UNCUT GEMS says came out in like the first viewings have happened before it comes out into theater. netflix movie right. It is a netflix movie. But apparently apparently because he's got a deal with Netflix. Critics and fans alike are saying it's the best movie Adam sandlers ever done in his life. Nice and it's something like out of character for him. It's very serious. But he's like a thug. He's like this like thug guy and when I first saw like when I first saw pictures of it and little snips like of the movie I was like well. This looks absolutely ridiculous that I watched the trailer and I was like. Maybe it's okay like even the trailer didn't really sell me on it. But everything I keep hearing sounds very very good so so. I'm pretty intrigued. Like that's what got me intrigued. I'm normally not intrigued. By what critics say but as soon as they said like other fans got a like a What do they call that? Like a screening screening. Yeah like a before screening. They've all said best thing Adam Sandler's ever done really we should do a top ten Adam Sandler movie so I would. I would do that because I'm A. I'm a huge fan. I've always been a huge fan of Adam Sandler my brother. Are you still always get Adam. Sandler see they're all GonNa Laugh at. You GonNa Laugh at you and I used to. He used to play that even he. He's eight years older than me and used to play that stuff like when I was in high school and when I was getting ready for like own coming and whatnot he'd be like they're all going to act you like all right John. Come come on man but like all of that stuff I listen to the reality is they all did laugh at you and they did and then I was there king I was never a king but it was a prince but you know the Best Adam Sandler movie of all time spoilers for the top ten. It's definitely that one where he goes the Africa. Let the one where they're in Africa. which ones that? It was meant to be a joke. That's not good but never mind which one mixed blended something like that. I don't think I ever saw. Oh that's the drew. Barrymore one is. It Drew Barrymore Jennifer and Oh Jennifer Aniston instant. It's Jennifer Aniston. I'd never saw berry more. I think it's blended in. I think it's true very. Yeah that's what I thought. She's been a lot of movies with him. She has fifty first dates. That's a good one. The wedding singer wedding singer is phenomenal. Movie my favorite callback to the wedding singer was the goldbergs. Oh yeah that was. A great verse had a whole episode integrated like and they had to pay a shitload of money to have that done the head to have paid somebody. Oh Yeah for sure to have it literally tied into the wedding singer on the same flight but the whole throughout the whole episode. That's like the best episode of that show of what I just. I just found out two or just figured out. I watched nacho libra again jaw. So it's ridiculous movie but great. He's been so interesting. I like that I was like you need to watch this. So he was watching naturally rate thought. It was hilarious. I was laughing constantly but the kid who plays Nacho in the very beginning of the movie the first like fifteen minutes of the movie is The one Goldberg Kid with the fro ahead the older brother. Oh yeah what's Airy Berry Berry Goldberg him interesting. He was the little kid and Nacho libra and and then he's the big kid in Goldberg's thought that was I've been watching the Goldbergs. This season I leaned. It's good to good show. Shut off your brain show and and it's funny it's funny sofas emotionally good yeah like it's upbeat. It's Jo L. so Next next news. I've still got. Let's see one two three like a few things to talk about. This is a quick one though. I love Keanu Reeves I mean who doesn't really love Cannery. They're making a new Bill and Ted movie they are. Yeah but they're also making the Matrix. Four Oh yeah. And they're making John Wick for awhile. And did you know that the Matrix for and John Wick for are set to come out on the exact same day in twenty twenty one. That's not gonNA happen but awesome as of right now. It's a long ways away. I know as of right now. They have both released their release date for May Twenty First Twenty Twenty One I. I hope they call it Matrix. Re- reloaded it would be re- WE RE reloaded. Why because it's the first one pull but only one of them was called Matrix reloaded? I know but you have to skip the other one and go running Out of characteristic name for that franchise reloaded. Yeah it's just very like yeah action movie. E in that franchise was like very watching movie. I gas but I felt like it was a little deeper than that. I guess it is the storylines reline deeper than that but the movie itself is an action. Movie Sifi. Yeah but I mean. They started the whole like three sixty camera thing or they like bash. Bullets go bullet time bullet time. But did they start. The did the video game. Max Payne Start. That now. Matrix came out before Mac Max Payne. That's a great game though. That was a great game. It is the movies not so good. I never saw it. Oh Yeah I did see. It's got Mark Wahlberg Mark Wahlberg. It's not that I neither workout. I'm Mark Wahlberg impression so I can do it in the future all the time. Hey say hello to him on on the phone he he there snake. Have you ever seen the standard Saturday. Night live no where Andy Sandberg Does Mark Mark Wahlberg. No and he goes to farm like a petting zoo. And he's like hey go how you doing nice to see you Lori Sale. ODU The film like every single person he talks through like all right Salema for me and then he ends up talking Mark Wahlberg and I don't know it's funny so so anytime anybody who's ever talked about Mark Wahlberg or I think of him. I say sales sale mother for me. I was watching some Sarah Lights up the other day because will Farrell was on there. Did you see that episode. So I didn't see the whole episode. I only saw the monologue. It's the mile is great though. Yeah the Monologue Ryan Reynolds. Yes yes I didn't get it at first I was like. Why are they doing a big trailer? We never talked about Ryan Reynolds new movie. Free Game. Rhyme Freeman Guy Free Eh free guy okay ease. NPR video game. It's a Tak- what movie I love. T T you know. It looked fun and dumb. I don't think you look dumb. Just Fine Fun Action Movie. I don't get us going to blow anything now. It does not look intriguing to me like at all all. I was intrigued by like hearing about it and then watch the trailer. You're like. Nah Yeah it doesn't pull me in agree all right what Elsa get because I got. I got some what we're watching. We're going to do a movie review. Come on to even have time for them. Yeah we've got planes. I'm what we were in an hour and six minutes okay So we've talked about the Batman movie. A bunch rate the new on Matt Reeves Batman with Robert Pattinson. There has been uh-huh a couple like new act like actors apparently In this movie that I was not aware of just kind of stumbled upon when I was reading about the new movie because a production has started now and they are filming and but there are still people bill that are in talks of being in the movie so they have started production. But I don't know if that means that they're filming scenes or if people are just like getting ready for. I don't know what that means but there are still multiple people in talks like Matthew. mcconaughey is still in talks to be like to face talks but another guy. Peter SARS guard Yup. He's also talks of being Harvey Dent. Okay so he'd be given he was like in the Salton Cejar hood magnificent seven. Yeah he was in if you look at his. IMDB's in like forty nine movies. He's one of those guys like you recognize them when you see him he he was born. I just read tonight. He was born on Scott Air Force Base in Illinois since other non I really yeah But the one so yeah he was he was a good. Is this movie. Come Out Twenty twenty one. What was it that far off? Yes yes it is. It's not this coming up. Appear but yet he was in talks about Harvey Dent. So I don't know if I want. A Matthew mcconaughey is Harvey Dent. I don't how many meet villains. Do we need to have well. So but it's another thing is like scars. SARS guard would be much better Harvey Dan. I think so I'm kind of I don't need Matt difficulty in this. I was excited about him when I heard his name. I was excited about it but once I saw this guy as at like talks for it I was this a real movie poster. They have out for it or is it now fake. They haven't come out with anything. They came out with what caught my eye about this article is that came out with the working title. Like the the filming title of the movie which they're just calling vengeance no You don't need that. No that's not what it's going to be out as like when they film it's called vengeance. Okay so they're using that as like a you know fake movie title But a lot of people are saying that it could be. We've talked about it before is it could be the long Halloween which has multiple different Villains in in that book but they're also saying that it could be the story line that is close to Arkham asylum. Glow saying that Batman. They're saying that some of of this movie is going to have Batman in Arkham asylum itself. So maybe that's why we see a lot of villains. They're not necessarily main characters they may be something that you see in Arkham asylum and not throughout the world or throughout the movie Another guy that is is is guaranteed to be in. The film has already signed on that. I didn't know about is John Turturro. That's a big name. He's a very younger. You get actor. carmine fell cone. Yes did you know that you're looking at a I. I'm looking at right now. Yeah he's playing carmine Falcone and I. I thought that's a really good poll. Not that the character self is whatever it's been like Batman begins but I just really liked John Tyrrell. He's a really good actor. There are rumors to that Joe Manganiello could be making appearances death stroke good because he was was teased at the end of yes Batman versus Superman. One of those movies or Justice League Justice League wasn't yeah Yeah Justice so. I don't know it's intriguing. It's not coming out for like two years so we got some time and we're gonNA speculate like Shitload more and the next two years but I'm that's the only thing I have to hold onto right now. In the way of Batman so it not to talk about after the disappointment of hush. Gosh they could have done a lot better with that and it's a animated movie. I thought it was good. If you've never read hush rush that's the thing like it's a very good movie if you don't know the story and don't care or don't want that story yeah you're right but then why even goes back to like like why even read the book then right like that's what it's all based off of is this book. It's a comic book especially that because it's not like comic book that's very very particular exactly and it's not like we're asking you to go read a seven hundred page novel like it's a SM- relatively small graphic epic novel that you could read in you know in our young the longest right hour and a half. Maybe I don't know Take the time to read the book and then watch the movie if you want but if you watch the movie I would say you're doing yourself a disservice if you don't read the book because different bed or are that's all I got for news all right I got some stuff. I've been watching you do. Yes Ah Sunday. I mentioned briefly in the last episode but we were running long so I didn't get a lot of time to talk about them. The first one being his dark materials. Oh Man I still haven't started the HBO. And I'm really enjoying it. It's nothing like I'm crazy about. You started talking about Lin Manuel all Miranda about not being that great of an actor well let's be fair to be fair He just came in on the show. He's not he's not in that. From the beginning he comes in about halfway through the season. Okay the first two episodes he just this Kinda plays it very cheesy which is partially the character but partially the acting. I feel like he's a like a clockmaker. Ray like a chimney sweep similar. He's like a he's a guy that flies a balloon O- hits in the same vein as clockmakers. It should be see steam punky okay. He's like a steam punk. Avian Arctic. What do they call them an avian auditor or something? I Dunno okay. It's an interesting show for somebody. That's never read any of the books which are very popular right. I haven't either It's definitely something. That's very interesting different new. Obviously if you've read the books it's not new. I Did Watch the movie the Golden Compass which I did I source I material but I feel like this is a lot better and it's really good like I'm enjoying it a lot. I definitely in the bag for it. I like what they're doing with it. There's a lot of twists and turns and interesting elements to it so I would definitely highly recommend it as show pretty much for anybody. I think it's pretty easily digestible is on HBO. Yes the other big one. I've been watching which I've mentioned several times and I talked about a little bit. It is what I think is the best show on. TV right now and that's watchman on HBO. So I've been catching up with that. Don't spoil anything eye catching up in the way of like I had to go back and watch episode four again because I fell asleep during it so I just watched that and then last night I watched episode five which Ones Five Live. It's the Mir what's a looking looking. Oh my God you haven't got six and seven are the best ones so unbelievable right and you keep saying that and I keep trying aim to work towards it but I just it's hard to do and then there's been eat which I watched last night and then that nines the last one there's nine. Oh the season finale Sunday Sunday to Sunday. So I'm not that far behind so this last one Eight is also unbelievably good Seven unbelievably good. First of all episodes. Six which I've talked about in previous episodes I've got that numbering wrong because you're on five live right. I'm on five number. Six is the one I meant to say. That's the flashback episode. That I think is one of the best episodes. Five is not a flashback. It is well I mean I guess to a point pointed is but it's not like what you were talking. There is a whole bunch of lash back episode. Going on and watchmen right five six nine eight. They're all flashback episodes but six in particular I think not only will win awards but I think it's one of the best episodes of a television show ever made. Yeah it's super novel and how they do time travel or to do. The flashback thing which I've read some stuff actually really that that the mechanism by which they achieved that is actually borrowed from some other source material. Which I wasn't aware of doesn't as a matter still feels fresh? Yeah very fresh and then the episode South is amazing the acting the nuance the the the message. The the production of this you can tell isn't like an hbo you know style show. Because they've got all the money need to do whatever they owe you but the way it's put together as really really good. Yeah just put together really well. I hope people are watching it. Because it's it's you you gotta get through the first two episodes. Yeah because the third one does change a little bit the fourth one makes it a lot better. The third one changes the game for his own changes the entire entire. Show it does. I don't know why exactly they started this the way it did mother. Then it gives you a little bit of story into these characters but quickly and the great thinking about this show so far. Is that like. You don't need a lot of exposition one. I think I think they were trying to set up some sort of like big scandal right off the bat with the with the chief of police and whatnot dealt with later. I'm sure does I'm just saying like I think they were trying to set up up. Is like this big like. Oh man like Don Johnson's dead. Yeah spoilers the person but I don't know I didn't really take it as that I was like there's so much more to this than that guy right off the bat. You can feel like I wanna know what's happened like why did these squid just fall over. Yeah that's what I want to find out about and you did. Yeah yeah absolutely and I knew about it. Previously because off like at the end of the watchmen comic. But you didn't know the details. They released him this. No I didn't but it's not surprising to me. That squid were involved with a watchman. Show yeah because of the end of the Comic Book Anyway I really liked the actress that plays like The what's it called night sister night. A Sister Night Regina King. She's good well. Yeah she's like an everything she's really around forever. I loved I. Can't I think it was an episode. Three where she's talking. You know what I'm GonNa talk about like I mentioned to you earlier. We talked about it on the show. Did we were. She's with the FBI detective in cave like in the Muslim. Yes and then. Yeah I told you do that and you laughed at me really. She's like who yes that's what she she's like. Yeah after this whole big spiel about that. One Alex designed like it's unbelievable like that part that scene. Oh yeah well maybe I made fun of you. Just because that's what I do but once I saw it holy crap pad his so good. It's really good because it's this whole big spiel of her going through all the stuff and then there's like this slight pause and then she's like. Oh Yeah Oh I don't know she dumps out yeah like Holy Shit and then from there on out the tone change change. I've never seen anything like that darn in a movie onscreen. It's silly little tiny thing but I've never seen anything like it doesn't it doesn't change like doesn't it doesn't change anything. It's just the way they just take expectation and just flip flip it. Yeah and they do that so much in the show. And that's what makes it great so you got six coming up. Yep best one of the best episodes of television in the history of television. I believe seven a second best episode. Also really really good episode and then has a massive twist massive twists. Okay and then eight just I also just changes the game massively all leading up to the season finale. Yeah which is number nine and What I love about this show is that also it it? It doesn't it just gives the viewer so much credit it doesn't try and retread any territory. It doesn't sit there and say like no we're GONNA spoonfeed you. What the watchman's about what? These characters are right because spoilers spoilers later on a lot of the characters from the book are involved in the show I was hoping they would be because they. They don't really into the novel way right. They do it in a way. That is like secondary right. They talk about characters that have have been involved as the watchman before and like That that woman I can't remember her name. Is Sandra Sandra something like the FBI. Agent Well she was silk spectre I can't remember no that was her name. Soak Specter to to. Yeah she's mom. Her Mom was silk. Spectre factor yeah she. She was raped by the comedian. May Her to to write from like if you watch. The Zack Snyder. Ninety movie it's played by Malan Ackerman Rate Mellon Ackerman. Yeah something like that. She's silk spectre the no she's still expected to do. She is isn't she no. Oh okay I thought she was just silk spectre because the comedian was alive at that time. Maybe I don't know I don't know yeah. Well the comedian and so expect or got together and ended up making her like as an illegitimate child. And you know she. She was raped. I'm not crazy about her but I'm I'm not either. I'm really not either. I feel like she's way too off putting and she knows like she knows the deal she knows what like vigilantism is about Jugnault's definitely plays soaked factor too. I know that's what we said. Mullen Ackerman Oh she does. Yeah oh I think that they bring up. Yeah I think you're right in the beginning of days Dr Manhattan. Yes yeah you're right and they talk like she's got a problem with the comedian. Yes Yup and I think that's like a big part of it's brought up because they begin to show her but in this I think she's like Lori. Blake Blake yes but In a movie other movie. She's Laurie Jupiter. I tell you what that Malin Alan Ackerman she something yeah tall. Drink water that lady. But yeah so and then when it's just so you guys if you've got to watch it and randomly like my sister and my brother-in-law just I didn't even say anything to about it. They just started watching it. It's because because they listen to the SNARF talk no all the they love it. They love that show and they know nothing of the watchman. So amy intrigued with it the other night when I was watching in Episode Four. She was watching it with she had happened to stay up. She doesn't stay up very late which I don't blame her. She does a lot of work she just can't stay up late and I want her to and Bhai late. I mean like past the kids going to sleep right but I wanted to stay up in Washi- shows because I know she'll like him and she saw the first like thirty five minutes of one of the episodes in now probably like forty minutes and she was like what's lady doing. It was episode four because it was the the weird lady towel. Oh yeah she. She was like taking the house from those people. That's a good scene that's crazy and she's like I'm going to give you this child in. Its Genetically Yours so crazy. 'cause like in if you don't take take this offer in the next thirty seconds we'll have to terminate the baby. I'm just kidding we will. We'll give it to somebody else. But it's like the way she delivery tolley only bullying. I feel like you are going to do that but something like this show. I've not seen anything like this show ever she was. That's what's so great watching this. And she's is like that ladies and alien she like she has to be an alien. She's like what's going on here. I was like I don't know how to explain this to you other than you have to watch. The don't even know it's it's going exactly and that's what I told her. I I don't even know who this lady is. This is the first time I've seen her. I don't I don't know what's going on. So she had so many questions but she needs to go back and watch this. Because I know she'll like it a lot. I think it's just refreshing to see something so different and and I know that late around it gets a little more familiar and it's obviously based on Ip that a lot of people are familiar with but it's something different than ever put spun on television vision before there's really nothing I can think of. That's like even in the same. Realm of it is not is lost. It's made a lot like lost. It is isn't that isn't team Lynn. Lafayette made loss. And it is formula a lot like loss game creator. Like I feel like like if you and I were. The episodes are a lot of flashbacks that are on particular characters loss. That's lost and at the end of this show. There's a smoke monster. The thing that's different about this. This lost is whenever they had. Those flashback character episodes infuriating to me because I wanted to the story it to move forward but managed to do a better job of not having you feel that a and b interweaving the past based flashbacks in moving the story forward right which he also lost to. But it's done better here. I didn't if you can believe it. I really didn't watch loss so I did. I definitely did I love loss but this is a better show lost by far far. I I do love the fact and you brought it up a couple of episodes ago about Episode Three He'd put the title of the episode. Is If you don't like this write your own show. Yeah something like that if you you don't want to write your own story yeah. I thought that was hilarious. Oh Yeah it's like a straight middle finger to anybody that doesn't that would like criticize. It was highly criticized. The first couple of episodes Y- I mean people hated it and I don't know that it though because it's like he. He absolutely predicted that it was it was done on. Yes it was predicted. I believe it was predicted. Isn't that crazy. I have the foresight to no. I don't think nabbed fish. I think he's like I got to tell these stories to set up what I want to do later and people are going to hate that I'm doing so I'm going to name the third episode this and that's when it becomes the watch I know it does and it's really incredible that like I said. He had the foresight to do that though like she knew. I just hope that audience gave it credit and didn't bail because you look at the scores and they're still very low the are they really. I'll have to look that up but I don't know how how quickly goes change doesn't matter. IMDB has it as seven point. Six rotten tomatoes has ninety seven percent. Yeah look the audience. Let Me Click on this. If your Internet works and I will find it but I mean the audience scores like thirty five percent really. Yeah on rotten tomatoes but it has been since the very beginning forty eight forty eight percent. Well it's gone up then big time. It wasn't wasn't thirty s but the average tomato meter is ninety. Seven percent doesn't matter this is GonNa take the emmys right Emmys by this show. It's GonNa it's GonNa win all the EMMYS I hope so. It's a very good. That show that in the goal is even diocese amazing in to even though you only see the issue of them and cheese like the baby thing with pulling them out of the Water Jeremy Irons Jeremy Irons is good. He's just doing his own thing on on this show just off on its own just acting it is too. It really is a good description of because that's what it is like it's a completely side the real world in which he's inhabiting not story wise just in his own brain just in his own goddamn university that man. I don't even know if he knows the story or does what he show he's GonNa hear I think he's just showing up in a row and they're like be. Is there like over the top. Broadway's you've gotta be and he's just like they're like hey you're gonNA pull these babies out of this water and you're gonNA look at him hanging thrown back in the water and over correct. Yes I Arkansas. New that shakes by thaw. He's good try out in a bathrobe freaking scar amazing amazing but it it gets even better so check out that show another one. I'll mention real quick and then we can move on to our big movie review if we have time is. I watched the whole season and the season finale of it's always sunny in Philadelphia the newest season ten or so I started it i. I thought it was a phenomenal season. I really thought it was one of the best in a long time. I think they've been kind of on a lull for the last couple seasons. Ten isn't like thirteen. Maybe I don't know I think it's thirteen but I thought this was one of the better seasons. They've had in a long time and I absolutely loved the season finale which is great. I won't bring too much more Since you haven't seen it no I haven't i. The whole season. Finale is done. The whole episode has done inside a laser tag the RENA and they're like like grappling. They're using laser tag is a metaphor for their lives. It's great okay and it's just very funny. It's just as far as like straight up comedy show on the best. You can't beat it without any real attachment or any story lines. It's or anything like that just like. I don't want to call it like a skit comedy but it's just like one of the this is I would say right now. This is the best episode of comedy that I've ever seen like a comedy show Sitcom I. It's a Sitcom right situation. That would no no. What is it Well it's definitely not Sitcom. It's that's usually a multi cam show in front of a studio audience laugh track. It's it's a single cam comedy. Either way it's a comedic show. Yeah you know episodic show the best episode. I've seen in the Wade Boggs episode. Ever like where they're on a flight they're doing do you know so they do. The Wade boggs challenge. Were they say that Wade boggs. He was a INFIELDER for the New York Yankees for many many years if he played second base Just like me yeah. He was a second baseman for the Yankees Boston. A fucking anyway. He apparently he could drink endless amounts of beer and he drank. I can't remember what it was of a flight to from New York to La. Yes drink thank seventy two beers something like that. And it's like documented like this actually happened Wade Boggs as it happens. Multiple teammates of said. This happened and then he he went and played a baseball game the same day so they try to do the challenge and they have A. They're wearing white shirts where they're marking down. How many beers they drink on the flight and they're all drinking on this flight and it's one of the most hysterical shows I've ever seen in my entire life because it's an entire episode happens on the coach section of the plane? It's like three seats. Yeah and it's just them. I'm walking up. But that's how the season finale is the whole thing in one room of the laser tag in the base of the laser tag thing. Yeah and it's a great up so we need to. I need to finish the season I've seen. There's a ton of other great episodes in that season. I honestly IT'S A. It's a season thirteen one of the best S. seasons on a long time Yeah that's it so me and you both watched a movie recently and House. We we would be remiss. If we didn't review said movie. I agree it's a so lessons movie head into the into the Frozen to this movie. We're talking about a movie that I was super excited for Very excited for because the trailer looked amazing. I thought man I can. I mean I've heard you speak of this movie before and and right directly after you had seen it like a day or two after you've seen him and we're on opposite sides of the playing field here Well well I didn't tell you anything about it until after your side. I know you haven't even told me anything about since I saw. So how do you know what outside of the field because you directly said what side of the field. I'm telling you but not until after you saw it. I didn't tell you anything before I use you saw no. I hadn't seen it at drinks giving. Oh okay well anyway. I'm a fan of the first frozen Rosen movie. As far as I can be a fan of it it's a good kids movie The music's really good. Yeah it's a good story but it's nothing like I'm crazy. A huge fan of finding completely agree and I didn't could care less about the second one coming out until I saw the trailers yes and I saw the trailers on like this is interesting uh-huh the direction they're going with this movie and I got really excited especially having a daughter. Yes I'm like. This is going to give her the ability to have a movie. That feels like it's an entry way into kind of the Superhero Comic Book Universe. Yeah not definitely not. That girls don't can't do that through traditional channels that they have available to him knob saying this is like something that she really likes and I'm like they're going this direction direction with it and I'm excited that that's happening So we went to see it. We saw an I max actually or GD ex I should Say DX York Ville no no you gotta go through New York Bill. They got another name extreme. They call it the extreme stream. Okay Yeah I don't know I guess I'll just stay right off the gate. I was pretty disappointed. I thought I thought it was very very hollow. Who are you I feel? I didn't have a the stakes of the first one. There's really no M- mm main villain. It doesn't really have any stakes. That doesn't really feel like a movie as much as a feels like an episode of something if if it just kind of fizzles it's got some amazing visible visuals and a very beautiful looking movie and then on top of that like the main thing about frozen when is the music and it's got no really Redeeming music other than maybe one song. The one where she's in the cave save that she's got to get out of the cave. Yeah that's pretty good. I feel completely on the other side of this really like one hundred percent on the other side of this. I felt like the story was way more in depth and better than the first one like I felt like the first one compared to this is hollow. Where like you know that this girl like in the first one you know the Elsa has these powers that have been hidden and then all of a sudden they come out and she leaves like that's it that's the story and then you try to get her to come back? There's nothing else besides. Is that funny though. It's pretty funny movie this. The second movie was hilarious absolutely hilarious. Yeah I feel like Olaf was funnier in this movie than he was the first one like when he was hole when he literally depicted the whole first movie to the bachelor settler last I was laughing out loud in the theater. Everybody was yeah and I thought the music was great. You can you hold back the fact that they do in eighties like hair. Ballad like montage with Spin I don't even remember what you're talking about. He sings a song. He's singing a song in the woods and spend it the reindeer now. What's the other other guys then? Chris Christoph yes spends in two. I offered yeah that Oh my Gosh Kristof singing a song and it's it's like a montage like in eighties ballads going for absolutely Christopher. Oh my gosh. We don't even get we did it. It's above you. But he sings the song. The reindeer is is a backup singer during the song. They they do the whole like him leaning up against a tree with a big head like fading in like next to him. You know. Yeah that is August going for and I thought it was very odd. I thought it was also I loved it. I was like smiling and leaning forward in my seat. Amy was like hitting me. Like are you this into this And I was. I thought the into the unknown song was phenomenal. Yeah well I didn't think much of it at the time I've heard it that sense now on the radio and stuff and I like it more now and that's how I felt about other songs in right I want to like. I didn't even grammy at first. And then the more you calcium assume but the story itself feel like wrapped all of the movies together into one they talk about their mom and dad how involved they were into how they're I was one hundred percent. Sure that they were going to bring them back as they were still alive. They didn't go. I'm completely glad they didn't go there because I thought that too when they found their ship like the ship I thought on. We're GonNa Bring Mom Dad back anyway. I like the fact that Elsa has to do that on her own you know to begin with like I. I have to do this because like it's literally about me to be to begin with like this. The whole movie is about me. She doesn't say that but like I'm the one who's hearing this voice voice. I need to go find it. I need to do this stuff. And she kind of pushes her sister off to the side because her sister's like super overbearing and I need to be. I need to be there to save you right like. That's not the case I can do this on my own. And then they tied altogether in the end where she she does come to save her but yet they both save each other like unknowingly. They both save each other. Yeah I I don't know. I think. The story wraps everything together about why they are the way they are Better than the first one ever did because the first one just opens it up and says well you have these powers. Yeah that's all you've got. I guess it does give a kind of origin stories per se. And that's cool. I guess but it's it's an origin but not going back in time. Here's a review that net characterizes. How I felt about it? The storyline felt overly forced in clunky. It it really did. And the songs were fairly bland and forgettable. I don't think so. There is a really good scene in where she. I haven't been singing them since I've seen the movie I couldn't even remember one but I didn't except for that one remembered in saying yeah because because I heard it today literally. Yeah but the sky was listening to it on the Google home but you did remember one. The one scene scene where she's in the cave and sh- and Well let's just say Spoilers also around on yeah and people well there are some disappearing happening. Doesn't get seen. Oh Yea I don't want to spoil too much okay because people are like really into this Movie be so I don't want to split it for him but I don't know I I could give. I'll watch it again for sure. I thought there were certain aspects of it that I liked more than the first movie again. I wasn't a huge fan of the first movie by any means. I think it's fine right and you know it's one that I can watch and not be super annoyed by but this one is definitely will say like really gorgeous animation so beautiful. Yes I'm telling you like rotten on tomatoes. Has that as a ninety two percent audience score. Yeah what's the what's the critics for seventy seven. Yeah not that great. Do you go by critics. Sure mostly yeah usually no you don't i. We've we've had no. I usually go bob more by the critics. It just depends. We've had episodes of SNARF Tauquir Awkward. We've all said that critics scores are dog. Shit No. I don't think that I don't I don't personally think that. But that's just me I think there what do you I think the first one got. I don't know for critics. Our audience critics say the first one story. Wise probably really isn't as strong as this one however the music is stand up in the first one unbelievable music in the first frozen movie. There was like two songs I feel like in the first frozen movie that we're good like standout good. Do you want to build a snowman. One let it go to the one that and then and and then I ran into you. She sings it with the Afrin. Mama laugh the open doors. Maybe it's talking or the chocolate fondue but with you. Yeah someone. They're the ones she's bad guy. Yeah and they're something about open doors and they're running around in the castle. What about the one with the trolls? That's a good one trolls one. What is that ninety ninety percent on the first frozen a movie critic score ninety percent for score on the first movie yeah interesting using well? I don't know I like it a lot. I liked the story about how I mean. There's a lot of story there between like like the people like two different people fighting each other over it did feel like more like On a fantasy story line like a classic like fantasy story. Who is the first one doesn't feel like that right so no it's I felt like the first one's very hollow because all they talk about? Is this one girl power. She ends up showing it and then runs away. Yeah that's it. Is it quick movie that I won. It is very very fast. So that's the basis of the story and then trying to get her back because she's technically the queen this episode or this episode. This movie ties in her power. Somebody calling to her but that person like calling to her is directly involved with like the the fog or whatever it is like the shadow shadow the circle of magic that are holding these people in the forest that they have to come in basically rescue. It's kind of a cool concept And they don't even know that they need to be rescued. I don't know maybe you're convincing me more because you talk to people that are in that little cloud don't even know that they're in the cloud oude. They think that they're still fighting for something. They need to be fighting for even though like the people that they've been trying to save are dead right. I like they're just still doing the same thing over over and over again because they're trapped inside this cloud of like evil or magic or whatever and then L. says the only one to come and save her when in reality Eddie. Her sister's going to save her. You know also has to go and do it on her own which she's right but at the end of the day on ends up saving saving her road than also comes back and saves where they need to live. You know like I thought it was all tied together really well. Yes complete spoilers but I love it. I think the I do think the music is good. It may not be quite as catchier like poppy. It's seventy dollars catchy or poppy as for says the first one. Maybe I've seen probably the first one a lot more than you. I can guarantee that. Yeah I probably am. Dan Ramp Grams. been watching a lot since we disney. Plus he loves it. That's why we went and saw frozen too because we're like we're like grams gonNA love this. We gotta go. Yeah See. That's the only the reason why we haven't seen it at Disneyworld at the live show right like five times. Yeah which it's only like it's a very quick. It's only like fifteen or thirty minute thing at Disneyworld. But here's a here's a review that I agree with it says frozen to is more mature ambitious and intricate. Then it's predecessor. I would agree with that. I definitely agree with that. It's definitely a aimed at an older audience than the first one. The first one is aimed at a very very young audience. Yes that's why it's hard for an adult so really watch it and connect with anything other than the great music or catchy music. I I shouldn't even say great. Great Music but yeah I mean let it go. It's literally changes to the nation for a time like that was something that everyone. It's still sung in our house a lot. Yeah talked about. There's if you go to the frozen show which is a Hollywood studios They it's a canvas stage show but they show movie clips when they do the let it let go song yeah. It's pretty cool. Oh and then it starts snowing in the whole theater. It's pretty cool awesome. But I've seen it so many times that just sit through it really care about so anyway no I I'll I'll give it another shot. So that's a that's a fifty fifty snarf talk review. I'm on one onside and Chris is on the other which isn't really too surprising. We are usually opposites of each other on most things. Well yeah a lot of like actual reviews of of the main movies that came out this year. We've been opposite really like what else joker. Yeah okay that's it. That's IT UH Joe frozen two very similar movies really very similar when you really break it down to the actual nuts and bolts. I mean I'm just struggling. Humans that don't know how to control them so they both have a people and they're both set in a setting and they have to overcome a thing. Yeah there's an obstacle where you know. It's very political sense. It's the word you know. And they're all women clowns all right well anyway. Um I guess it's worth the watch I would absolutely say it's it's worth watch the funniest thing I ever. I saw not ever saw the funniest thing I saw in regards to. That movie was a tweet that somebody put out that said. will I understand Dan frozen to if I've only seen frozen one five hundred and thirty five thousand times last week. That's that's pretty good because that is the way it is. I mean Graham has watched it a lot lately. He asks for all the time. I will say that movie has been the go-to by my kids for for the last three years three years since I came out like every day. Yeah they watched that movie every day. And not as much Cheney more but and now it's like jet jet wants to watch right absolutely because he's seen the other ones watch it and he thinks he need cash never showed any interest in frozen much. Watch into it. He would watch it for sure he would like it. We'd watch but he never really got into it but Scout Watch it and now jets really into it. He just walks around the house saying Elsa or not yeah. That's how grandma's he's the only one that watches it though the other two don't care So real quick to wrap up the show we've got we're at our forty nine. Did you have more no. Okay well I guess just a wrap it up. There was a Joe Rogan. podcast about Agai if you haven't listened so you need to. I listened to it and I love to talk about it. Glenn Yell Villanueva. I've listened to it currently actually all really most of the way through. I finished it the other day Basically in one day. 'cause I listen to podcasts like at work if I'm doing computer work. I put the Youtube on in the background. I'm just doing my thing. Listen to the PODCAST. And then if they say something that's like visual Flip it over on my computer screen and see what they're talking about but I listened to them like during the day and so this guy was on a show that discovery put out called life below zero. Yeah and which I never saw. I never even heard of to be. I had heard of it and I never watched. It was right at the time where I was losing dish. A satellite dish and then I went in the dark work with regular into known. Yeah into the no TV. You and I didn't get to watch any of that show while he was on it and and the only reason he was honored is because he lived a certain way in Alaska and was away he chose to live which was completely off the grid. Like like Just basic like one hundred percent on his parked his van in hiked sixty miles into the wilderness. And just just live there now. He kinda pre set up a little camp there over the years so a little back story on this guy though he he didn't finish school didn't finished eighth grade right and then he didn't get his ged or anything like that. He's like why would I ever need. That doesn't care he doesn't seem unintelligent. So here's a common seem. Seem like super smart either. But here's a comment on the youtube a video that I wanted to bring up because I say like or All the time when we talk and it said this guy says he's uneducated below an eighth grade level and in a three and a half hour. podcast he he never says like or You on time. He's a very Good Speaker under the story teller V. doesn't he he comes across fish sharp. I mean yeah he does guy but he's you know I'm just saying like I don't think he comes off as like a savant or anything no but but but reading that comment. It's probably because I read the comment that it stuck out to me right so I read that comment and then it stuck in my head the whole time and he really doesn't know he doesn't he he never says we'll like like like dommage either though so I do I feel like I do long. Never noticed it but he is so direct in the way he speaks and so confident in what he talks about because he should be he does have an air of real air of confidence about him that about times. James almost comes off as almost arrogant. Not and then he always got. How can you challenge it? And just about the time. When you're like man this guy seems seems like an arrogant prick? He backs backs back away from that. And you kind of lose that. It's getting back away from it and say well well. That was my experience you know like in that situation. This is how I reacted. He's like but that may not happen to anybody else. And then they'll give you like a backstory as to why it happened to them and the only way this is happening to them is because of the area he is in it makes no sense. Why Okay anybody would wanna live like this? But this guy literally sixty miles completely on his own in the far far far. North of Alaska like you saints from her her to May yeah he said as basically frozen. I mean it's it's crazy cold so like no powers. It's eight months solid of Winter and four months of course bring basically so. There's really no summer no said it's like four months of spring spring because the hottest you'll get like sixty five seventy and he was a bush pilot. He taught himself to fly. He went up there to be a Bush pilot and so that's why he flew in like some supplies to this like campy imply would basically as it and that's how he scouted. The area is flying a plane in To find the area but then he he drove a van out and walked from the van to where he was going. So basically like to live in summary. Fishes and In the most of the year like as sooner up around starts to get cold as soon as you can freeze meet outside without getting eaten by larva and he goes out and shoots a moose or an elk or Caribou Caribou Caribou Noelle's Caribou Moose. One of those he shoots those and that's what he lives off the rest of the winter fist eating everything from the the antlers to the bones to the brains to the. Here's what threw me for a loop talked about so many different things about eating stuff that blew me away. He said He started talking about Caribou antlers yeah and he said he's like Oh yeah. You can eat their antlers. He's like when they're really young and he's like and they're just like a spike or you know a little bit of antlers go have velvet. Yeah and they're still in velvet he's like you can cut those off. Tear here the velvet off. He's like and then the bone insides like a pickle. So I get soft. He can eat it like a pickle so it's great he's very in love with Caribou. Caribou loves everything about them things. That's the greatest meet of all time. But then he started talking about pickling meat inside of a Caribou stomach. I haven't got to that point yet. Then holy smokes he because Joe asks about like vegetables or if feats any sort of Greens or anything like that and he said there's berries berries and Lichen around lichens like a little mushroom Moss US right loss. Yeah but he said it's very abrasive so you can't like humans can't just eat that off the ground you'd be like eating grass you can't do. It can't adjusted and so he said once a Caribou and it goes into their stomach the first stomach. Then you can eat 'cause caribous like a ruminant animal so it's like a cow cowed of four stumped is here. It is a type of deer but our dear today. Are they ruminants. I guess I don't know I don't know either. But it is a type of deer here so our Moose so yeah they are but anyway he said it's goes in the first stomach he's like in once it's in that first stomach and gets broke down it gets a lot softer and and you can eat it. So he said he's eaten so many stomach contents of Caribou to get some sort of vegetation into them which is unbelievable to me. Yeah he's talking about eating stomach contents and then he said and he doesn't like make any gestures of like this strange or you know Joe. Joe Shows like shock like oh my gosh you're eating stomach contents. And he's just like well. Yeah of course like a half ahead to do that. In order to get some diversity in food it's so weird though like his wife was out there with them. They've had a baby. They had that he had kids out there and like he he mentions one point. There were basically starving. They had very little food and he says he's like there was never a day. Went by. We have something to eat but it was never enough. And and some one time they had nothing to basically he couldn't find any Caribou and They had their infant newborn baby out there. And he's like what about the baby and he's like well the baby's nursing. Yeah what about your wife is like cheat some shade. Some things there's crazy that is basically lived off of meet meet all the time and then so he starts talking about pickling meet in Caribou stomach and he said you you can because they didn't have he didn't have like vinegar I mean. He said they brought some foods food supplies. So he said he's gotTa Slit Open in the stomach and he'd take back straps or any type me and he stuff it into the stomach and close the backup. He said it had to be a certain temperature. If it was too cold it wouldn't work if it was too hot wood rot. He's like but if it was a certain temperature he was like right around like forty forty five degrees and you left it in there for like a week pickle the meat and he's like you you he's like you had to leave it to where it would go through the whole meat so on the outside will start turning brown. He's like you wanted to turn Brown all the way through. He said not gray But Brown and then. He said he'd pull it out and he just slice little bits off. He's like off so good. Like how do you in the way he. I figured it is because he talked to a lot of local people that lived in the area and there are other people that have done this entire lives which is just insane to me to think like in our day and age people have lived that way like not just saying like Oh my great it. Great Grandpa told me stories are told my grandpa stories of this or you know like hearing it down the line of your family known. It's like saying there. Our elders in this village that have lived this way. Yeah he's choosing to but other people were forced what I can't figure why. Why does he wanNA live like this? And it's not clear because he doesn't seem like he doesn't come across as like crazy or a loner. I think it's it's just like such a love for the outdoors to be honest because he said when he was twelve years old thirteen years old. He walked to Canada from Connecticut. Yeah I don't know man it's a crazy story it's definitely not listening to At one point later on in the episode I just is wanted to touch on real quick. Is that it just blew me. This was another thing that just blew me away about this certain podcast. Because he says. And it's just so nonchalant he's talking about Moose Colon and all of a sudden he says he's like Oh. Oh Joe any like gets all posture. And he's like let me tell you he's like if you ever want to eat moose colon this Moose Colon like this is a normal topic of discussion and he starts telling you he's like he's he's a cut it out once you cut it out. He's like turn it inside out. Wash it real good. He's like once you get. It turned inside out and washed. He's like you can slice it then in rings things and fry it he's like it's like Fried Calamari or like an onion ring shirt. Is it's car safety if you fried in fat. It's so good and Joe. Just keep saying like what is that. What could that be like? He's not like fat. But what does it taste like. And he keeps saying like fat. Joe Wants more like Joe wanted more explanation than that right but the guys just like no. That's that's all it is right because he has nothing else besides that and it was just. I think it was really hard for Joe to figure you're out that it was so basic like so incredibly basic that there was nothing more than just saying like no it felt like just eating fried fat. Yeah and that was it. He is great stories to about all wolves. Yeah so like living with wolves and competing with wolves. And you know he'd follow this one time. He followed a wolf after a kill and actually stole the Caribou from Weiss Weiss. Yeah crazy crazy. Hey it was talking about how how there's like no such thing it really is wolf attacks. There's only ever been to in modern history. Yeah it's just really rare and I thought it was interesting because he brought up a point Joe and Joe says well how. How is that possible? How did they know to fear humans up there where they don't encounter humans he's he he says I think it's built into their DNA and I think I personally? I've listened to the theories of DNA memory memory and yeah and I think there's a lot of evidence for it They're doing it. They're they're literally storing information. DNA right like in all all animals. No I mean like like scientists are storing information in DNA and can re- like retrieve that information back from it. They've been doing studies on it and have achieved that. Yeah which blows my mind. Yeah you can do that and I just I think it's so crazy and he brings it up he's like you know. Listen like there's people that do this but did did this without rifles. Yeah there's people that did this without sure by the standards of us. What he's doing is complete insanity insanity but he's still probably has lighters and flower or he brought from the store even having like a standard like flint that you could buy off Amazon sure he had ever year you know he's got he's got sub zero L. forty below zero sleeping bag and he did have things flown into them? Yeah Oh yeah for sure. Not Very Much No. I mean he wasn't living out there for like ten any or straight like he would be. There was one time the longest he was out. There was like seventeen months. I think. Seventeen or just over a year a year and a half But most most the time there for like three or four months and then go back and work a little do stuff like that. Tell anybody in our area or anybody that you know to even live in their backyard for that long without anything you know what I mean like people live in your house for that long without anything. Yeah it's just not possible like I could go in the back of my house in the pasture and like on the other side of the trees. There's deer live. They're all over the place. They're running around all over like if I had. Did you just hunt for my sustainment. I would die no now with a rifle you'd be flush with with a rifle. Maybe but I don't think I could do it for seventeen months without refrigeration. That's what I mean. I don't think it could do for seventeen months and like sustain myself one hundred percent like out of the elements like immediately built a cabin. He immediately got out of the elements immediately had food. He like did these things as a As as what society would call a very uneducated man. Yeah even though he's self educating and he talks about always wanting to learn more like I love learning I love teaching myself things and reading stuff and he did all the time. He just didn't do the you know. L. Like the what would it be called like the the normalized education which is fine. I don't think there's a lot. There's a lot of fluff in EPS normal education. That's just not necessary or vital for survival. He learned how to fly a plane. I can't fly a plane. Yeah I'm GonNa Start Taking Pilots here by the way. Good idea if you want to join in again. I want to fly playing one of our mutual friends. Just finished He just so load and it makes me really jealous. I WANNA do. I know me too because I've witnessed all of his flying snapchat and I'm the perfect size for any any of these planes like perfect. Yeah well I'M GONNA do. I'm starting this winter. If you WANNA start with me because that's going to go over real. Oh with my life. I'm sure sure I'm not going to bring up any stories but there are some stories anyway. I thought it was great. It was a great example sample of the perfect podcast medium. Because you could go watch that show and I'm sure those interesting I haven't seen it but I'm sure it's great but there is something that you can get from three this three hour discussion. That is profoundly entertaining. Yes and it's the only way that you can do that it's only medium unless you're reading a book a novel. Yeah felt like it to me. It felt like that but this is better because reading the hatchet more interactive and Gary Pulse. There's somebody that can on the fly. adjust by asking questions. which is Joe Rogan? Doesn't he's very good at it. Probably better than anybody right now. At I formed interesting listing question. I agree with you but I felt like this honestly. I felt like this episode. He was behind the ball on a lot of it. Because some of the annual you'll hear it like the later on in the episodes as you get but he starts asking questions that are just ridiculous like The Glenn Guy Starts Talking about about Caribou a lot like at the end about ECHO hunting he start. He called it echo hunting so out on the lake you can like yell at certain corners of the late in it'll bounce back and make the Caribou run towards you because it's hearing they're hearing the sound in front of them even though you're behind him so he demonstrates that like in video and they talk about it and he's literally within twenty feet of the Cariboo and the the whole herd is running by him because he's doing this type of hunting and his wife at the time was videotaping. It and thought like you're going to be trampled like you're going to be trampled by these Caribou because he was getting so close never killed one because he was just demonstrating it but that's how he would hunt them out on this lake and Joe kept saying he he keeps talking about heard of care but like I got so there was this eight hundred. He's like I think there was about eight hundred head of Caribou Karibu out on the lake. He's like a herd of them. Kept saying are heard and Joe says what are they like. What do you call them a pack as it a pack and he said no or heard after he had said that word like thirty times and then Joe asks if it's called a pack like you hunt all the time? Why are you asking if it's a pack of Caribou? I thought that was ridiculous. There was a few times whereas Joe come on man. Yeah like just let a guy talk. Well whatever ever but I don't even like he's so engaging listen to I don't really I can't even remember point out one thing that Joe said because this guy talks ninety percent of right but it is the only one that really stuck out to me. I was like I do think like it's interesting to me that there's like hunting. Is this big thing but like the reality is like the rifle is perfect weapon. Yes but yet we we all find these other ways to hunt Because I guess they're more sporting or they're more challenging and they are but if you're surviving yeah you're not GonNa to do that with the bone marrow. And he says that he does. He says that to Joe because Joe Talks about like. Why didn't you bring a boat? He's like I'm not going to survive with the bow. He's like I. I'm going to bring a rifle because it's what I can guarantee. A kill wonder what rifle he uses. It was a ruger something he talks about. What what what caliber Thirty six. Okay that makes sense. Yeah that's what you'd want. Yeah absolutely or three away either. Eight or thirty he. He had a thirty six three three six. He said it's the only it was the very first rightfully ever bought. And it's the only one he's ever used to kill a large game animal with He. He said he had another rifle before but the only one he's ever killed a large game animal with to survive off of has been with that one rifle. Don't I don't think three awaits got the Hopping power for a large animal. Thirty six. Yeah it can shoot the same amount of distance. Just doesn't have like as flat of a pattern and there's a lot to it but I agree with you We'll talk about guns in future up so 'cause I was just talking about what one of our listeners and I have a little bit of a wishlist. My my collection's complete except for about two really. Yeah we'll talk about it off air and bring up again okay. We've reached our time Christopher so I would say go back if any of you. Listen to Joe Rogan. If you don't listen to Joe Rogan. If you don't listen to a good introduction it is the Guy Guy as it really is like listening to a book because this guy talks about his life and how he ended up being on a reality TV vs show that he didn't even know what that was. He didn't know what reality TV was at the time a guy told them like. Hey email this guy. 'cause they might I wanNA talk to you. He did that in when he emailed them. He said I only have a satellite phone that I check very periodically and leave me a message and it was like eight months later. He ended up getting a message and then discovery channel. Is there filming him. Yeah that's it it's crazy so it's really interesting. Check it out all right for snark talk. This Week I've been Chris and I'm Jerry. See you it

We've curated some of our favorite episodes to help you get started. Just tap the link in the show notes and start listening to an episode that interests you but today we're gonna play a live interview. I just conducted with lauren underwood. A freshman democratic congressman who represents illinois's fourteenth district underwood who is in a swing district is not part of the squad that has agitated older democrats so she told me she has to be careful about how she talks about issues like the russia investigation in my community immunity. There's a large cohort of people that shut down. When you say russia that you can't even get to investigation or impeachment because as just noise to them right. It's been like this endless bickering that don't really know who's that fall doesn't care because it's not addressing the core issues affecting their family and it feels like more more of the same this interview was recorded live at manny's which is a barn event space in san francisco's mission district so let's go there now to hear my interview with congresswoman loren underwood. I apologize in advance for the glasses. I left my glasses. This is at home. I live near here. We're probably didn't want to be late for this. The cool shade cool shades. That's right knee work just as well. I really bad. I say so anyway. I'm really excited to interview commerce howsoever would i want to because i interviewed a lot of tech people and i interview a lot of people who have opinions about tech great and you don't have that many opinions about tech but we we might have some but what we want to talk about is where we are in congress shirt freshman <hes> and a little bit about your journey and what's going on now because i think it's hard to be a <hes> from a district. That is a swing district. Essentially you're you you have a swing. It definitely has a different flavor on the job. Yes with my other colleagues. We need to talk about it because i think the people need to understand. What's happening sure yon. Just <hes> that beyond just the regular things so let's talk a little bit about your background for <hes> talk about the the people who don't know how you because you're one of the more compelling stories of of the many compelling stories of a freshman class. Thanks lauren underwent. I represent the illinois fourteen steve which is a hassle bourbon half rural community outside of chicago. I live in a town called naperville forty five minutes west of the city. We have a naval contingent. Contingent specifically nico valley wildcats in the room today. I'm so excited but our communities forty five minutes west of chicago and i'm a nurse and i spent my career working to expand health care coverage in communities across our country right works over the affordable care act at the federal level work done private insurance reform form works on healthcare quality in medicare preventative services those free screenings and vaccines and contraceptive coverage basically anything the obama administration was getting sued on related into the a._c._a. Was in my portfolio. Okay all right and then i joined the obama administration and worked on public health emergencies and disasters so we did a bola we did sika the mosquito illness y'all remember that and the water crisis in flint and so it was during our time in flint that the two thousand sixteen election happened and i thought hillary was gonna win win and that we'd have this chance to hand off work on flint and handoff or work on health reform to team bulla bulla by twenty sixteen. You know it was on a downturn in research now yesterday in africa but then it was not at crisis levels. We'll just a little bit of a bowl is is a problem as far as i'm concerned but go ahead thank you yes and so when the trump transition team came in and they made it immediately clear that they wanted to take away healthcare coverage from the american people and you know i didn't want to help them do that. So i had an opportunity to convert back to a career employee decided not to do that and so i went back home to illinois our state expanded medicaid and so i began working for a medicaid managed care company in chicago was living my best life life and i found myself at my congressman is your best life. What is my life. My best life at that time was not having to fly fly. Wherever there was a natural disaster emerging infectious disease right not going abroad you know at the last minute because something had happened right being able to plan my life and do work. I cared about but have some balance right like work. Life balance decide to run for congress right out the window that win but at the time i i was just so excited about this idea of being able to be a millennial do millennial things right honestly and it was fun while it lasted but i went to my congressmen townhall and so this this during the time that there is all these different versions of obamacare repeal the being considered in the congress and all these different bills that did slightly different things and so at that event. He said he was only going to support a version of repeal that let people with preexisting conditions keep their healthcare coverage so i'm a nurse have a pre existing condition and i worked on the a._c._a. <hes> so when he made their promise i believed him because because it was personal and two weeks later he voted for the american healthcare act which is the version of repeal the opposite made it cost prohibitive for people like me to get affordable insurance coverage and i got really mad and decided you know what it's on. I'm running and no come on no is there is really no. Some people get upset set and they're like oh. I'm going to do something about that and then life happens right so people have had these ideas to write a book and then life happens or start a business and then life happens organization asian for me. I just could not let this go right. Come let it go. This is like three months after the women's march and you know the president's doing all kinds the crazy things and i felt like we as citizens need to engage so have you ever thought of that before. I mean you worked the obama administration. A lot of people do run rahm emanuel. All sure we'll do that benefit plan of yours well. I was always interested in service and dan serving in elected office. Something that i thought could be an interesting thing to do later in life. I was not at all planning planning to launch a campaign at thirty right so you and you didn't want to go back to nursing just want to continue working in healthcare in some way and health policy so so you you do this and then you wanna actually be specific. Nursing is a very broad profession. Yes it right. We have nurses working in many different print settings including in health policy. There's just fewer of us. What is very important that we bring our expertise to these because our patients are their families. Families and our communities are counting on sharing expertise so i don't want folks to walk away and think that i left it behind right or or that somehow not a nurse because i've spent my career in these spaces so you run. Did you think you were going to win. Did you have any sense that you could win. This is again talk about the i guess so the illinois fourteenth was on that very first targeted list from detroit so they put out a list at the end of january which i saw they put out illinois my six which was peter roskam and illinois fourteenth randy whole grand and my town of naperville has actually been gerrymandered into three congressional districts so a town of one hundred hundred forty thousand people has just been carved up and so one democrat and two republicans represent in our community and so i was so excited to see that somebody at the detroit i thought that our community was winnable because they had not invested in our community in many many many many years and so at that time i was like oh i wonder who's is going to run. I'd love to help them right and went on living my life <hes> and so you know what we're doing. What was it so this is at. One part was caputured drinking. What was your it's like going to spin class going to pilates. No i just want to make healthy baking when eating whatever i begged and i hang out with my girlfriend buying a house really living my best life by most standards i think and so maybe molyneaux life okay probably have some go ahead okay so the trip had listed the illinois fourteenth so they had some some data to suggest that our district could flip could flip how long so my family moved. No you're tired. How long have you been here. How long has it congressman been there before. Randy khokhran had served for four terms when i beat him right so randy hawkins at tepe was the tea party republican but our district is probably most most notable because it was denny hastert seat. He was speaker of the house. Denny hastert is the longest serving republican speaker <hes> then in two thousand six and the election right under rama manuals leadership at the detroit right the democrats win the house speaker pelosi becomes speaker for the first time and then dennis hastert steps down on shortly after he steps down all of the all of the news of his sexual misconduct and sexual abuse of his students came out because he was making these inappropriate payments payoffs and then he went to jail so that's that's the history of the fourteenth but most notably there had only been one other democrat ever in history that represented in our community in congress and on their head and his name's bill foster. He wanted a special election. He's a physicist. Just after <hes> denny hastert left he did not get reelected randy. Hope this tea party. Republican beat him in the tea party wave and then had continued to get reelected randy whole grain is very nice man presents as a moderate and then stood right by trump at every turn right and so a lot of folks in our community. You know the fourteenth. It is a very nice beautiful half the bourbon half rural community. A lot of folks are not looking to the federal government data day for for help for assistance for much right and so for a long time people were comfortable and didn't need to interact with their congressperson. We're looking to watch with their congressperson was doing and so then when trump wins and you start to see all this stuff happening. People are like well who's our guy and they saw that our guy didn't have our back right right. He wasn't showing up for us in washington. He wasn't engaging. Folks at home refused to do town halls. He did that one and then went away for sixteen months. Didn't appear in public didn't have any kind of engagement and so you know at the time that i got mad right. This is your question. Bring a seventeen did i have did. I think that we could win yes. I thought that we could win. Did i know how we were going to do it. I did not that. I know how to run for congress. Not necessarily a friend and i went to lunch her name's sarah feldman and and i was like yeah you know i have this idea. I'm going to run for congress. I'm really thinking about it and she takes out her notebook and starts writing things down at lunch and that's how did it we spent the summer of two thousand seventeen figuring out how to run and i made the website and is the website that we still have upright right now. You know we wrote a launch video and got some friends to shoot it and it was a very d._i._y. Campaign right and we ended up launching an august august two thousand seventeen. I ran a primary against six guys. I one i got fifty seven percent of the vote. Do you think you want and what was the. I think that i won for a number of reasons. The primary or the general okay in the primary healthcare is care was the number one issue. I had really rich background and expertise on and could speak credibly about the number one issue secondly. You know we had add a approach that was nontraditional in our community. The traditional way that democrats would be competitive because they've never really one besides bill foster competitive is to the target a few suburbs across the district and then to spend time in those areas and i said no. We're going to go everywhere so i had seven counties. We set up volunteer operations and all seven and spent a lot of time and each of those communities and what we found is that farmers would tell us that no democrat had knocked on their door in ten years uh in ten years and so it's like how could that be but we know that when you surrender seats meaning you don't have a democrat running for county board. You don't have a democrat crat running for state rep then that means that there's no one door knocking if you don't have full slates of committee like precinct committee men and women that means that there's no local representative genitive from that democratic party and so people just didn't hear from us right and so when we would show up in their living rooms and they're called saks and their soybean fields and talk to them about their issues. She's and then come back and then come back for like oh. I guess under with girls serious. This is interesting right and then you know quite candidly we outraged all my opponents combined signed and so we had the resources and when i say outraged i'm not talking about millions of dollars right. It was just more writing and i just want to make that distinction because i know that so many folks this is very well educated political audience that we have here and you all i think pay attention to quarterly fundraising the numbers and you know who's up and who's down and whatever but you know for my primary we raised three hundred fifty thousand dollars total and that was more than everyone in our race combined bind and that led us do mail it. Let's cable t._v. Let us do digital as let's do what we need to do to win our race. Do we hit our threshold every quarter. No we did not. I never in the primary hit my goal but they want to raise probably shouldn't say this deterrent wanted to raise four hundred thousand dollars in my first quarter i was like are you out of your mind and we didn't you know maybe that's the traditional playbook traditional candidates right and so when you are a non traditional person in a district that people think is possible potential right then maybe you don't follow the traditional playbook right to to get to success and so we crushed it and then ended up in this general yes against ran in the general that was it was intense. Our district never elected a woman had never elected a person of color had never elected a young person right and so someone like me is very very different but the republicans nationally thought that randy hope grand could sleepwalk and get reelected because he had that are for republican next his name on the ballot and so that gave us some freedom to do what we needed to do on the ground because they weren't paying attention. What why do you think you beat him on what topic healthcare so we one really for. I'd say three reasons number. One healthcare was the number one issue throughout the whole cancer tate's from drug places cost cost cost so not just drugs premium prices surprise billing right this this idea that people oh can't afford to see their provider because they're struggling to pay their premium. They can't afford their insulin because they're struggling to pay their premium right and it just goes up up up and it's gotten out of control aw so the only thing that bumped healthcare is the number one issue. Was that those three weeks over the summer last year where we saw those images of kids in cages at the border. That's the only time that healthcare dropped and so that stuck with me. The second reason we want is this representation haitian thing. I was talking about right. Did our guy have our back and what he show for us. At home for the randy holkar and the answer was no and for a lot of the moderate republicans and independent voters they saw and they were not happy with that level of non responsiveness accessibility and non transparency and the third reason. I think that we one and is that we were willing to do the work right. So it's not just alignment you gotta go out and fight for and show show up for people and the tone of our communications the way that we ran the race is very different than people typically do in illinois right like corruption is something that illinois voters are very familiar with so many of our former governors end up in jail right. This community had a congress person that you know the deep but trail and so the idea that you're going to run a race with integrity and be honest and you know positive <hes> so since you had a swing district wanted to be positive forward thinking not necessarily running against trump. I was not running against trump donald trump. This election in the fourteenth was not about donald trump. I didn't talk about the president <hes>. It was something that everyone knew was going on but this it didn't really have a bearing on race meaning that voters did not want. They wanted to talk about the issues in you're right. I mean donald trump when our district he got forty nine percent. Hillary clinton got forty. I five with that forty five percent. She outperformed barack obama in two thousand twelve but obama won our community in two thousand eight and then obviously everybody voted for him for editor at the same time that i was running. We had a really competitive gubernatorial race <hes> jay pritzker one that governor's race in our state. He won by sixteen points. That's right. He lost my district by eight and i won by five so there's a lot of people who vote for donald trump they voted for bruce rauner for governor honor the republican and voted for me and we knew that art community we would not be successful. All of our race was about partisanship right. This is not vote for the democrat. That doesn't mean that much to a lot of people right democratic party in our state is run by a machine machine. The machine ends up being pretty toxic doesn't have a lot of fans out our way. What we found is that if we were able to talk to our voters mostly women <hes> women aged thirty five to seventy in my district their names are patton barb and sue and march and they are the ladies of the fourteenth district now we will go out and we will talk to that. Everything we put out is designed to reach them. We know what they read. We know what they watch the language they use how they communicate with each other so how does it feel right now so bar listen barbas pretty frustrated right now. Barbara's pretty frustrated because gridlock is consuming. The president president keeps tweeting. He's very offensive right. He's using language that she would never tolerate out of her kids that her kids. We get suspended from school. If they said those kinds of things right she sees an administration whose officials are breaking the law by ignoring subpoenas and even if she he doesn't buy into the whole need of investigations which she depending on a barb is a democrat or not she doesn't she's concerned about the flagrant lakefront breaking of the law and she really just wants someone to help her with her healthcare costs right. She really wants someone to help her have reliable internet connection because depending on where she lives in my district. She doesn't have it right right. She really wants someone to help her. Child old not be terrified going to school in three weeks when they go back right because those kids remember each and every active shooter drill right and it is like like this i use the word paranoia but it's actually grounded in a very real chance that it can happen to us and she's disgusted that this is what our country has become right. We're children are scared to go to school right so barbas not like happy right now. Barb i think is pleased that you know her. Congresswoman shows up and is engaged and whatever but she's concerned about the future of our country. We're gonna take a quick break right now but we back after this with congresswoman loren underwood technology is becoming more open data more accessible and the world more innovative ibm is combining their industry expertise with the open source leadership of red hat to bring you more freedom more security more flexibility. Let's unlock the world's world's potential. Let's put smart to work learn more at i._b._m. Dot com slash red hat. Hey i'm jason jason delray and i'm hosting a new podcast called land of the giants in it. We examine the most powerful tech companies of our time. Season one's called the rise of amazon. It's about how jeff bezos turn what was just an online bookseller into one of the biggest companies in the world and how it transformed the way we shop live and work works for how amazon prime is the key to the company's success and how it's something you'll never quit. We'll see what happens when amazon builds a warehouse in a small kansas hands this town and then also what happens when it decides to weep and we'll ask why is amazon building microwaves powered by alexa and what is with all the robots built and of course we'll tackle. The biggest question of our time is amazon too big too powerful land of the giants from recode and the vox media podcast network new episodes. Come out every tuesday. Listen and subscribe for free on apple podcasts or in in your favorite podcast app when you get to congress <hes> well. That's what you're faced with your your face is so what do you do as a swing. A lot of people here and across will not nancy pelosi represents this district. She haven't been pushing for impeachment. C'mon haven't been caught up in the fighting. That's been going on or parent fighting between the squad ansi pelosi and all the democrats. Seemingly fighting in some fashion is hard hard to understand. I think meanwhile trump takes advantage of it and uses it to create a series of racist tweets <hes> flagrantly racist when you're i in your position. Can you explain to everyone what what the risks of doing that is and why you wish you could or wish you couldn't or where. Where are you on impeachment right now. Okay so i'll ask answer the first part of your question. I which is what do you do when you win from a swing district and so i- recognized that healthcare here's the number one issue in my district across the country and that's what i went to congress to do so i served on three committees one of which is education labor which was always traditionally officially part of health reform conversations but had a very very small role as compared to the others meaning ways and means energy and commerce well they put me donna shalala woah and kim schreier the first female physician in congress on the small healthcare committee to work on healthcare and we get to do whatever we want fun. They are so far yeah they nobody but going it's amazing and so we really get to advance healthcare agenda. I decided i requested is it to serve on homeland security now the vice chair on homeland security and we have jurisdiction over the u._s. Mexico border what's going on right and so remember when i said the only issue she bumped healthcare was the treatment of the migrant children. Now we get to work on that right and i serve on veterans affairs and the way that our country has continued to struggle to offer high quality healthcare services to our nation's heroes is quite candidly pretty despicable and i was like let's work on this and so i decided to go to congress and work on healthcare issues at every chance i get right on homeland. They've never had a healthier person. Ever since this committee it was created since the department of homeland security was created post nine eleven when incredible opportunity <hes> we think about cybersecurity and all the rest to really explore in dig deep so i love my job i think it's very fun and we're solve a lot of problems now with respect to impeachment investigations and all these other things you know in my community there is a large cohort of people that shut down when you say russia that you can't even get to investigation or impeachment because as just noise voice to them right. It's been like this endless bickering that don't really know who's at fault that doesn't care because it's not addressing the core issues affecting their family and it feels like more of the same right because again that voter in my community is very familiar with what corruption looks like and so this flavor is not necessarily necessarily more or less alarming even if it's sincere elections. It's just the same well right because you have to remember. We knew illinois got hacked well. Before the report came out right we knew before my election in two thousand eighteen. We knew that this was there are ball. Nobility that were exploited the russians got in. We knew this and so two years later for mr muller to outline it in a report. It's like yes next almost alarming and they're certainly things we need to do about it to say like the ladies of the fourteenth <hes>. I don't know that they're like across the board clamps. So what do you do in in that situation. You have used some you have not supported him peach mint yet i have not called for impeachment and that's because because we need to move forward in a way that brings the community with us because if i act unilaterally or what's perceived as unilaterally and what am i going to be behind then it looks like a power grab a power grant and then i'm no better than him being the president and that's not what we're here for right and so i think it's very important to make sure that our investigations can continue forward as mr mueller stated when he testified <hes> hit the scope of his investigation was very limited he could only do like obstruction and russian interference and he wasn't able to investigate indicate financial dealings all these other things congress is the only one that can do that along with a few attorney general's depending on the jurisdiction right and so you know. I think that we need to continue to see where the court cases go. <hes> we are we being the house is winning a lot of these court cases and i think it's important that we get all the information because let's say that we just skip ahead and we move forward today right a lot of that information would never come out and i think that a lot of people are concerned primarily with the president's actions uh-huh but i think that there could be a scenario where others are involved and it's important to have all the facts so that we can ensure that this never happens again in our country yeah so you running for the next election which is like tomorrow. You have to start doing that. You've already launched interesting. I mean i have seven republican opponents so a lot of people especially congressional levels will talk to you. They'll say we're gearing up for a very competitive race like no. I'm in a competitive race right. I had a republican opponent that filed to run against me two weeks. After i was elected in november of two thousand eighteen they objected on general principle. I haven't been sworn in. I'm done anything and it's just like nope who is this young black woman in our seat seat right and that like it's that layer of racism sexism 'isms is on everything the the republicans put out. So how do you feel. How safe do you feel your seat is. It's a toss up. Races literally rated a toss up by all those political tossup raiders and you know it feels competitive but i'm doing my work and keeping my promises and how do you stay in there. How do you keep that because because that's one of the issues. I want to keep these seats. How do they keep these swing seats to hold the house. 'cause that's young. That's that's the critical part of home every weekend and i think i've missed probably two weeks in six months and we show up to all the small towns and on all the public events and we have the town halls we do these things called office hours which i found after the first set of town halls that people had questions that really weren't appropriate appropriate for the large group of people just wanted to be able to engage me directly so i'll just like post up at a city council chambers and people just come in and talk to me for ten minutes and ask their questions or take their pictures or whatever they just want to be able to interact. I think that that's really important. We have good constituent services. So how are you going to hold onto the seat. What do you think we're gonna fight for it. We're going to work for it. We i am running for re election. I am raising money. We have staff on the ground. We have offices. We are doing the work every day. And how do you imagine imagine you could get beaten by one of these republicans one of the seven well get out among themselves. I think that if i'm forced to run the two thousand twenty presidential and the illinois fourteenth we will lose. I think that if i wait to engage those voters that we know that we need to follow up with and we wait till the spring of twenty twenty to reach out to them. I will lows. I think that some of the presidential candidates are super toxic and i will lose along along with many other democrats swing seats and we will lose the house and i think that we have to be careful in how we approach sean. This wonderful opportunity that we have who is hog lax about whoever you think is toxic. It's toxic okay because whoever whoever's toxic for san francisco is super toxic in the fourteenth district yeah well. It's a different thing but you know imagine if you had to pick toxic probably by would be more toxic than elizabeth warren here so that's a different toxic <hes> right okay all right. I suspect okay yeah i. I don't know about marianne williamson the feelings i haven't asked but you know yeah yeah mayor p. I just did an interview with him. He's a nice guy so you need. Just that are nice people to write my silence. It'd be like ooh. There's no but you presumably you'd wanna more democrat that people in your in these swing districts can get behind. Yes yes and i want someone who's used to talking to people right. You know a lot of folks in washington have gotten good at washington <hes> right they learn how to be successful effective navigating very dysfunctional dysfunctional system which is a skill set and it's very valuable but there are a lot of people who are not used to going into living room or sitting in a diner and talking to a regular person person right. They have no idea what to say. They literally don't know the words to us. They literally don't and that is something that i found around valuable. If you're disciplined about your speech and your language you can talk to anybody so one of my favorite examples because i figure you might ask is about debt free recall waiting on toxic but go ahead jeffrey college so debt. Free college was something that really came out of the sixteen election. Bernie was all excited about debt free college and in my district people don't like things that are free and they don't like things that are for all right and they just don't and so so i heard that and i said okay so what i would talk about is modernizing our financial aid system where we would have pell grants that reflect the true cost cost of tuition at a four year public college and we would have subsidized student loans that would fill the gap for the rest room board books fees whatever right and lo and behold people like yes that's right. We do need a modern financial system. People shouldn't have hundreds of thousands of dollars in student student loan debt right. Yes well guess what that's the debt free college proposal right because that turns people off off and i think one of the things that the democratic party has been doing is that we like hashtag labels has conversations things that people can be like oh definitely college house yeah and while that's good at what i would consider to be like mobilization right to get people out right that does not convince persuadable and i think that we all need to be more thoughtful. We all being engaged very engaged. Democrats need to be more. I thoughtful in the words that we use to describe our ideas when we are talking to persuadable voters <hes> persuadable voters are not mobilizing so getting to then medicare for all hashtag medicare for all. How do you feel about that being someone who is quite up on this topic yes so so when i would travel around my district nine people be like well medicare fraud i said well what do you mean by that and i would get some version of medicare fifty five and up which is lowering the medicare eligibility age medicare medicare medicare eighteen medicare at birth and buying into medicare then you get the people want to buy into medicaid and they call it medicare care for on all this other stuff right so everybody has a different definition. You have the people that want to keep private insurance. Get a give <hes> get rid of private insurance. There's all these different ideas. We are in an the open brainstorm period and i think it's very very healthy for people to be having this open exchange of ideas however we we know at least in my community that the majority of the support from medicare for all is coming because people's healthcare is too expensive and it's out of reach for too many people and that addis what's driving their support and the reason i learnt this is because i thought when i started running that people support it medicare for all because like me they i believe that healthcare was a human right and that impact is not the case they support medicare for all because they think that medicare is free and they want healthcare to be free because they can't afford it does that make sense to and so i am not supporting the bills in the congress as they stand i think that they are flawed and more importantly they don't know how much still costs and how to pay for them and at this point point i think it is a strategic decision to not talk about the cost <hes> because that will transform not only our healthcare system but our economy and you know. I think that an community like mine where the average income is one hundred five thousand dollars a year average that you need to be up front about what that costs looks like folks will be on the hook for a tax increase now just because it's a tax increase doesn't necessarily mean it's bad right and i'm very clear on that but people are not seeking out tax increases and so as a general rule the politics <hes> read my lips no new taxes well. I didn't say that not just for listening to this right. That was cara thank you we're gonna take another break now. We'll be back after this with lauren underwood who represents illinois's fourteenth district in the u._s. house house of representatives. Hey i'm your patel editor in chief of the verge host of the verge cast revamping the broadcast more and more lately coming out episodes twice a week sometimes even a third bonus undersold on tuesdays and talk to people around the world of tech like microsoft founder bill gates and other tech exacts like the founder of lime scooters the c._e._o. Beyond meat we must have been talking a a lot of reporters and academics about the major pressing policy issues tech like facebook's content moderation in great youtube harassment plan or lack thereof and whether or not the government should break-up break-up amazon which maybe i should and then every friday i sit down with executive editor bone and paul miller for a chat show we cover the latest in tech news and product reviews bringing our other reporters around the verge thatcherism party. Listen to it all that more. If you subscribe to the virtuous wherever you get your podcast bluff rita listen and join us so again subscribe to the virtuous wherever you get your podcast. Let's either hi. I'm megan kinane. I produce curbs podcast nice. Try utopian stories about how people try to design a better world. What happens when those designs don't go according to plan if you love learning about failed utopian experiments and you live in new york city you can join trouble. Men are host the evening of august six at the ninety second street y for a live conversation with katie weaver of the new york. Sometimes tickets and more information are at ninety two y dot org slash curbed. We hope to see there are are there any other issues you think are critically important because i went to just so you know i went to the house democratic hopkins yeah you were there at our retreat cheat and what was fascinating about it was was the differences of opinion for me and i brought my two sons and one of them said mom. This is a ballroom of america the everyone's argue with each other <hes> and i was it's like the republicans aren't even here and they're arguing with each other but what was really interesting was the different viewpoints. How do you work with the caucus like that. How do you feel being part of that versus sort of a more lockstep. How are they going to manage that because over here. You have the squad doing things. You've got nancy pelosi over here doing things. You've got the swing state people. How do you manage manage to vote as part of you might have some disagreements and how you achieve certain goals but for the most part everyone shares values and and i think even shares like priorities meaning folks recognized that healthcare is very important right that we want to to pass an infrastructure package. That's very important right. This anti-corruption message very important climate. Change is very important right so people are pretty united on those top agenda items. It's just like how you solve. Those problems is where there might be differences of opinion and in my experience that reflects some of the difference of opinion among the american people and so you know the press likes to talk about the division and the disagreements and how we can't even talk to each other and there's heated debates bates and people storm out and all this other nonsense. Some of those words were pretty pointed. Well yeah i mean they all said it to each other kind of thing sure yeah but at the end of the day we work together to get things done until deliver for the people <hes> and do you do you think because the republicans are using those as a wedge between and among democrats are using me to try to talk to the persuadable 's look at this group <hes> they're sort of taking taking the squad and making it villainous yeah. How do you deal with that can be somewhat effective to do that. Well you know there's a very clear difference in style and the way that i do my job in the way that some of my other colleagues do there's right and not just limited to those four women but really late across the caucus. There's a real difference and i'm clear at who i work for. I work for the people of fourteenth district and we're in touch and a and you know i think that they do not hesitate to let me know when they disagree with things <hes> and we have two way communication but you're in a world where this kind of talk is is just. Is it just noise. I mean you have trump doing some. You have everybody we had to learn very early on on how to be disciplined in our work because if i'm so busy responding to the news of the day i will fall into a tangent and get so far of course the idea of passing my healthcare legislation becomes an afterthought and that is not why i am not here to respond to the news of the day and that's candidly why stop going on all these these new shows all the time because i you know we talked to the producers ahead of time. They're like oh yeah. We want to hear about your bill. When i hear about your bill and i sit down and they spent five minutes on the president's tweets aides or whatever disagreement and then thirty seconds on why i'm there right and my job is not to communicate with america <hes> my job is communicate with people fourteenth district right and one of the things that i know in talking to some folks in this community is that there's a real concern that the democrats don't have a message or the democrats aren't being responsive and and communicating about these top tier issues. All we do is talk about investigations or russia trump or whatever and i want you to know that in my community folks know what we're working working on. They know about my veteran suicide bill that we passed they know about the robocall bill that we passed last week right. They know that we are we affirmed the u._s.'s day in the paris climate agreement agreement they know about the wonderful work that we're doing in the house because our local press publishes it and so while that doesn't get national coverage i think in these swing communities folks now so how do you as a democrat and as a politician ignore the enormous amount of noise coming from trump largely he creates. It's something that's action action and action react but you know i think a lot of people tweet treat their social media like they are at news agency right so they are reporting out on what happens like i am not a journalist right. It is not my job to be like you know. Blah blah blah happened today right like someone can read that in the news <hes> vice something to say about it right then i will comment on it but i don't think i have to comment on everything. <hes> is that hard wire. Is this <hes> no because i have enough people people that are close to me that i trust and you know. I don't have these i don't. I don't get rage. I feel like i have to release and if i wanted to release it certainly would not be on twitter certainly would not <hes> now. I read comments. I'm very well informed on what people think and what they're saying and you know you go deep and you know it's interesting. When you meet your twitter troll in real life who and the troll lives around the corner it is not about right and so then you're like okay you interact act i mean cranky and kind of odd but it's there real people who are very engaged right and don't like what's happening right right and sometimes they're loud at town halls and they demand attention and energy <hes> but when that conversation sation moves off line right then at least you can have a conversation right which i think is valuable right like let's talk because at the end of the day. I don't think that true values are at least in my community. We're not that far from each other. We're really not. It's just how we saw those problems. There might be disagreement so how'd why does it feel like that. Coming out of washington is it that people just ignored what trump is doing not just saying thing but doing sunday yesterday. There were like eight things it was like we're gonna kill everyone on death row. We're going to hear about that. You don't care why didn't hear about it. The only thing i just started marie conjuring my house because it made my living your best life yeah so i the only thing that we haven't spoken out about this but i think is what require some attention is. Dan coats <hes> being forced out for as the director of national intelligence and like to call this new guy at trump loyalist is i think even downplaying how completely unqualified this is to be the director of national intelligence however i mean now i just spoke out against it but you know we hadn't before four because i'm not chasing those headlines and don't need to be part of all those news articles and honestly when i'm before my community on on wednesday morning and a town hall right. We're going to have an opportunity to talk about those things to people directly. Which is where i see a lot more value so tweets get some questions questions from the audience but just my whole positive. Do you feel about the democrats winning keeping the house winning the white house and you keeping your job well. I think that if i keep my job the democrats will still be in the majority and i think that we are going to do all. We know we need to do to win this race. We cannot do it alone. We cannot just count on you know the detroit or party organizations to do it for us like like i said earlier right. I'm like i'm a nontraditional candidate. I'm the youngest black woman to ever serve in congress ever. There's an institution that literally really was not built for someone like me right. It was built by people look like right then. That's very different and so you know we're gonna hustle aw and do the work and i feel okay okay. What is the fatal thing to do wrong. And what would you think if you you were running one of the twenty-seven people running for president. We your message if i was running for president yeah oh. I'm definitely not running for president. I don't wanna be were. I'm <hes> i'm putting you there. I don't know that's something that i can't even contemplate in this mom. Which should the candidates be running on healthcare. Yeah the candidates should be talking about things things that regular people care about and i think that the early polling they should not be distracted by the early polling and i think that if they know that they can't win they should drop out so much like being in the debates and if they and if they think that they'd be toxic and communities the may should drop out all right. Okay all right guys you know is too serious and too serious all right all right nontoxic questions from the audience. This is terrific fantastic's nick right here to start with either. What was the challenge for you. Speaking to a community not that i believe is eleven percent hispanic three four percent asian american in less than three percent african american speaking on issues that might have ten of like racial isolation like migrant youth in a way that was consumable and that couldn't be like headlined headlines moment. You know what's interesting is that our election was not about race like it. Literally didn't really come up and here's why i'm black you can tell by looking at me right. I know i'm black. They know i'm black by parents are brown skinned black people. My parents were on the campaign trail every ready to every event. One of my parents would be there because they loved it right and they love meeting people and seeing their new friends all around the community and the very engaged like my parents. My parents are so glad are running for re-election because they get to go and see their friends all around the district again right like that. That's just how we ran our campaign and so once people were like okay. She's she's a black woman. So what do you think about x._y._z. Issue based that's how the election wasn't even with the migrant kids. It was a moral issue. Children's should not being cages and certainly not in the united states. People were horrified that this stuff was done in our name right underneath our flak by the leaders of our country and they felt like it was wrong unamerican and completely unjust and so that's not something that i would have to stand in front of people would be like as a black woman or as a person of color. I am horrified right now. As american. I'm horrified and this is wrong and you know we have got to do everything we can to stop it and at the time you don't randy hope that he said or i sent a letter really that's week right and and people agreed so it wasn't like we had to invoke race or respond to challenges because of race now this year's a little different because donald trump has used racist rhetoric and targeting of many of my colleagues in order to score cheap points among his base. This is a strategy that he is employing and and many of my republican opponents are ardent trump supporters and they like to mimic what he does and so we are preparing ourselves this for twenty twenty election that will have this again young black woman intersectional racist sexist ages attack attack wine coming and that'll be different but i also have a record and now people know me and so my staff and i were having this conversation today like like this whole idea of uttering ushering is only effective. If people are scared of you and i am not a scary person person and even if i were right folks are i think we have delivered for the people the fourteenth district and we we will be able to demonstrate that to them. Okay next question right here. I other than give you money. What can we san in francisco's do to help you. Well thank you you want san francisco money. We are running a very competitive race. I need to raise sixty eight million dollars to win this race and we three hundred and fifty thousand does that was for the primary and then the other one you spent and then whatever four point seven lists three hundred fifty four point three yeah a lot and so yes we we need your financial investments. I'm not taking corporate back money right and you know we want to uplift the voices of people in our political process process and yes in the house we passed h r one and mitch mcconnell has basically said over my dead body right and that is unacceptable and so oh you know we need to have a senate that will be responsive to the american people instead of just you know killing legislation even nonpartisan legislation like i think of my veterans suicide prevention bill. This is something that everybody should be clamoring to vote for it right now and the idea that mitch is just too busy with his judicial nominees to give it full. Consideration is something that i think is appalling right. So what can you all do. I know that you all are very skilled at canvassing. I welcome you to come to the fourteenth district. People are so nice even folks who do not agree. They'll be like i'm going to close the door now. They will not slam it in your face and it's it's really a lovely experience phone. Banking and texting is very important and then just at a foundational level being careful how you speak and the words words that you use in engaging in public discourse about what's happening in our country is very important and that is a message for everybody right. I do a lot of chats with interns and students and i've spoken to every student in the state of illinois and i always tell them do not tweet in anger right. Do not let that be your outlet because this stuff lives on forever. There will be consequences for you and there will be consequences for all of us and i think that that's just an important reminder for folks who are interacting with our political system in a way that <hes> yield's influence but folks may not be happy about the direction of our country. It's very easy to be a boss behind the keyboard right and it has consequences for folks in other places. He said advice over here. First of all you are amazing and i thank you. Healthcare is also my number one issue. I volunteered to help get it passed and for the past five years. I've been an enrollment counselor for cover california and you're welcome. It's my passion as well. How are you feeling about. Several of the candidates have plans. They wanna fix the which we never got a chance chance to do and then create the public option. That's medicare like it's what pelosi wanted to do originally and let people choose to go in there on their own so that it gradually takes over. Is that more your approach you know. I think a public option is something that like we need. A public option is not a political winner say public option. Nobody applauds in my community. No-one applauded here right. Yes if you want to buy into one of these programs you should be able to do it next and the idea that we have to expend so much political capital to do something as basic and needed that is something that i think speaks to help fundamentally flawed our political system. Is that being said. I think that we're probably going to vote on a public option bill before the end of one hundred sixteen congress and i think that that would be great. I have a bill. It's h. R. eighteen sixty eight. It's the healthcare for it. Ability act which would extend tax credits to more americans that they could afford their healthcare premiums so right now under the affordable care act people making four hundred percent of the federal poverty limit or less so family of four making one hundred thousand dollars or less would be eligible eligible for tax credits but we know that every year you know some people were extra overtime shift or something very slightly small changes in their financial financial situation and they no longer qualify for the tax credits well and my community premium prices can be twenty or twenty five thousand dollars a year premiums on on the marketplace which is not affordable so our bill says that people would pay no more than eight and a half percent of their adjusted gross income on premiums so so that same family of four with now pay eight thousand five hundred dollars down from twenty or twenty five thousand dollars huge savings people understand. It and i think we're gonna get a chance to get that on the floor this fall and so you know i'm excited. I get excited about things like that. It's concrete facebook's money. They understand how it impacts them and you'll appreciate appreciate it. This is for a silver plan good coverage. This is not like those high deductible. You know i have health insurance in case i need it kind of situations and and people need to be able to live healthy well lives. This is not a luxury. This is not a commodity right. This is basic human rights and <hes>. We have an opportunity in this one hundred and sixteen congress to make real progress. We do not need to wait for a democrat to be in the white house to be able to do this work now. Mitch is the barrier but it is not like we don't have the power to convince him to persuade him antecedent fantasy. Make him see that he needs to move on our legislation. Okay great all right. Let's last question must do the way back way back. Sorry i'm curious about how you feel so confident knowing what barb or the representative voter in your district hat off ebisu on march in march. How did you get get get your pulse on did you did you do polling. Is it really just from knocking on doors. Were there ever differences between focus. Groups are pulling that you did and you know what you heard knocking on doors. I'm just curious how you really got. It seems like you really know your district. Yes so we got to know people through having a series of house parties what a house party is is people invite you over and they buy their neighbors over and they would we would sit there for for an hour an hour and a half and they would ask me whatever they wanted and it would be on all kinds of things and we got to know each other and then we would come back. Come back and talk to them again and then folks will come out and volunteer and i like people right. I'd like to talk to people a million questions about their lives their business their families what they care about why how they got here if they ever done this right. I just ask a lot of questions and you people are surprised that i care and they share quite candidly now. Of course we did polling. Of course we did the focus group. I couldn't really tell you what the focus group said. The only did one right like that was not the the most valuable way that we learned about the district valuable way to learn about community is to be in the community. Ianna presley says and i'm going to get it wrong but she always it says something like you. Gotta be closest to the people with the pain so that they can have the power or something like that and i think you have to be among the people <hes> everybody's body's not going to respond to a poll in a way that's truly honest right like we learned that in two thousand sixteen with these exit polls but people will tell you about themselves and they will do it quickly who has been the speed dating right. It's amazing. Am i the only one okay okay. Yes man and i have not together but we have both been to speed dating. That would be wrong. Yes and speed dating. You get like three minutes with the person it's amazing what people will tell you in three minutes about themselves and they're like oh is. Is that really the way you want to introduce yourself. It's kind of shocking but people just share they share about their lives and they welcome you into their homes and you meet their children or their grandchildren. Children are their partner and and it's beautiful trust that people place you know as a nurse early in nursing school we are taught how how to build a rapport with the patient because you get maybe three or four minutes max with a new patient to walk into their room and build trust and so the way that we were taught to do it as you look into their eyes and you say hi. I'm lauren. I'm your nurse. How can i help you today. How are you feeling tell me what's going on and they need to to trust that the advice that we're giving and the information that we're sharing is in their best interests and that we're only we're only doing it because we believe that it can help them and i see so many parallels in the work that i do today. People come up to me and they're like more and i need help. I don't know where to turn. I don't know what to do. People are sharing during their most vulnerable concerns and like it's almost like a very intimate moment right like they are very very very vulnerable and it's an honor to be able to do this work on their behalf and i'm really grateful that they placed their trust in me so final question what's the best question. Marge asked to uh-huh or pat or pat so base a once. We got through all the policy questions then they get to the personal ones right and those are always fun because inevitably someone has a son more you know cute neighbor down the street and i should come back a different days that we could just like casually bump into that and you know i i really enjoy those interactions because then that's just like human being a human being being right and they care and they're invested and you know the ladies of the fourteenth often like lauren. How are you doing. Are you getting enough sleep. Are you drinking water her. You know how can you keep up with the schedule that kind of thing and they care <hes> and they're watching and they're following. I appreciate that and so we have great chats. Let's see you really should come out. I'm planning on it now. These people and you know it's not that far from chicago yeah so you can get a little bit eight of all worlds in rural areas. I have many relatives but everybody hasn't though i know we have folks here who grew up in the fourteenth district. I met them before chat started and they're from a very small community near the wisconsin border and it's just different then here and i think that people should get outside the bubble. I don't know enough about san francisco presume but i suspect it's like d._c. And like chicago where you know you need to break out every now and then yeah and i encourage people to do that <hes> because we're not so different but life is different. No it's true it's interesting. I went to kentucky keep it. I ended up telling the coal miners that our jobs we're gonna get out of existence and it went okay they. Everyone was telling they were going to get their jobs and i was like actually actually here's what's going. They appreciated the honesty. I think it was interesting. We'll do appreciate honest yeah. It was interesting but they can come here to their welcome to come here. If they wanna come to san francisco. Oh sure sure sure okay. I think that a lot of folks can't or don't travel now. I know that but but people should be spending more time meeting other people outside outside their comfort zones anyway speaking of which lauren underwood thank you congresswoman underwood for coming on the show you can follow me on twitter at cara swisher.

The Solution - For All Mankind, For All Time

28:47 min | 1 year ago

I Hope Im Ready

"Welcome to the solution radio show with Greg Bacchus. Our world is full of incomplete solutions leaving people searching for more God's only solution for all mankind for all time is Jesus Christ. He's the way the truth and the life. This solution radio show will help you to grow in your relationship with God is your heavenly father. Your purpose is far greater than the day-to-day circumstances of life. Let's join as he shares. God's word with us today. The other day, I had an interesting conversation with a young lady named Shania. It was not unlike a conversation that I've had many times over the years. We were talking about the return of Jesus Christ and eternal life. And as we spoke Kanaya voiced her concern of whether she was truly ready for the return of Jesus Christ. She was concerned that maybe she wouldn't be a part of God's salvation through Christ because she had not yet done enough to gain God's approval, she said, I. I hope I'm ready. Sadly, I have had that conversation. Many many times with many people who believe in Jesus Christ over the years, it's not God's heart. That is people are anxious or worried about whether or not they measure up to God's standard of righteousness in order to receive eternal life, so many if not most religions teach that a person is acceptable in the sight of God based on their works. If they do enough good works, then they just might be good enough to receive eternal life, if we do certain evil works. Well, then there's just no way God would ever give us eternal life. A couple of questions that we might wanna think about in light of the conversation that I had with Shania number one. What was the purpose of the life of Jesus Christ? Number two. Do works indicate that one person's life is more valuable than another in the sight of God. I'm asking these questions in light of receiving eternal life our works. They definitely come into play. They make a difference after we have received spirit from God eternal life through Christ. Our works today determine our eternal rewards and responsibilities. Well, let's look at that. First question. What was the purpose of the life of Jesus Christ? We'll start here in the gospel of Mark chapter ten if you have a bible handy and wanna follow along I forty five for even the son of man came not to be ministered onto but to minister or to serve and to give his life a ransom for many. Jesus Christ came to serve God number one. And in serving God, he served or minister to mankind. How did he do that? He served by being over to the will of his heavenly father, which resulted in him giving his life a ransom for mankind. What's ransom a ransom payment for the release of a prisoner who are the prisoners that he gave his life for you and me all mankind. Look at Hebrews chapter two verse fourteen for as much then as the children are partake of flesh and blood. He Jesus Christ also himself. Likewise, took part of the same. He was a human being that through death. He might destroy or paralyze or make impotent him the devil that had the power of death. That is the devil. I fifteen and the liver them. Who through fear of death were all their lifetime? Subject to bondage. There is tremendous bondage in a person's life when they are afraid. Many many many people are prisoners in their own minds the root fear of all fears is the fear of death. What worse can happen than death. Well, Jesus Christ. He beat death. God raised him from the dead, and in his death and resurrection he paralysed or made impotent the devil in Colossians chapter one some tremendous versus here twelve through fourteen giving thanks to the father, which has made us adequate or acceptable to be partake offers of the inheritance of the saints in light who hath delivered or rescued us from the power of darkness and has translated or placed us into the kingdom of his dear son. I fourteen in Christ. We have rebe. Dempsey's been through his blood, even the forgiveness of sense. God is the one who has rescued us from the powers of darkness. He placed us into the kingdom. It is through the life death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ that we have been redeemed we have forgiveness of sin. Your good works did not rescue you from the powers of darkness. You're good works. Did not redeem you and give you forgiveness of sin. It is only by the blood of Jesus that we are rescued redeemed and forgiven. It's been ingrained into our thinking by society in the culture of today that we are weak if we rely on God people are celebrated when they make it to the top. So to speak doing it their own way. Remember the song? I did it my way. Well, people have become little gods unto themselves. It's always about me me. And what can I get out of? This life for myself, so many people think like that in the world today. The hearts of many can be a hard shell to crack. The one thing though, that can penetrate the shell and touched the heart of an individual is the love of God the love of God displayed through the life of Jesus Christ. And intern lived out in your life, and my life that is what will reach the on saved. I think we're starting to see here from the scriptures. The purpose of the life of Jesus Christ. Let's look at a Fijian's chapter one. We'll start here in verse two and we'll read up to and through for seven. Gray speedy you and peace from God, our father and from the Lord Jesus Christ blessed be the godfather of our Lord Jesus Christ who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. God is worthy of praise. He is blessed and because of his grace and his piece we have been blessed with every spiritual blessing in heaven in Christ could we possibly be lacking anything now continuing in verse four, according as he got Heff chosen us in him before the foundation of the world that we should be holy. And without blame before him in love having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his well verse six to the praise of the glory of his grace wherein. He got. Has made us accepted in the beloved. God chose us in Christ before the foundation of the world he could do that because of his foreknowledge. He knows the end before the beginning. And he desires that all men and women are saved and all come unto a knowledge of the truth in our having been chosen by him. We are accepted in the beloved. Verse seven in whom we have redemption through his blood the forgiveness of sins. According to the riches of his grace, we have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ, and we have been forgiven of our sins because of the riches of God's grace. It's by God's grace has nothing to do with our works. That is so important for us to realize because all of society, all of culture today is based on works. You get a promotion at work because of your work, you get a raise in your salary because of your work you receive approval from other people, whether it be parents neighbors, teachers because of your good work. Well, God's standard of righteousness is so high is so pure is so holy that. It took the perfect man Jesus Christ and his giving of his life. To bestow upon each of us, the righteousness of God to make vailable eternal life. Look at chapter two verses one through ten will read, and you heavy quickened or made alive who were dead in trespasses and sins wherein in time past you walked, according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience, I three among whom also we all had our behavior and times past in the lust of our flesh fulfilling, the desires of the flesh and of the mind and were by nature, the children of wrath, even as others, but God who is rich or abundant in mercy for his great love where with the loved us. Even when we were dead and sends has made alive us together with Christ by. Grace. You are saved by grace. You are saved. It does not say by your good works. You are saved. God is abundant and mercy. And it's because of his great love that we've been saved that we've received eternal life verse six and hath raised us up together. God has raised us up together. And made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus we are not only saved by God's grace. But in addition to that he has raised us up together. And he has placed us sitting together in the heavenly in Christ with Jesus Christ. Where is Jesus Christ today he is seated at the right hand of God we are seated with him. It will become a literal experience for us at the return of Jesus Christ when he returns, and we meet them in the air, and he. Gathers us together. And we take our rightful place at the right hand of God, the father for seven that in the ages to come or in a Fiji chapter two verse seven that in the ages to come God might show or put on exhibit the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness towards us through Christ in all the ages to come God will show how wonderfully awesome and kind and good. He is by what he does for you. The angels will look at you. And they will see what God has done for you. And in you for all eternity, and they will say isn't got good. It's really a remarkable life that we have and will have through all eternity because of our loving gracious. Heavenly father verse eight for by grace, are you saved through faith or. Believing and that not of yourselves. It is the gift of God. It's not of works. Verse nine not of works. Lest any man should boast there. It is by grace. Are you saved through faith or believing? Our salvation is not of ourselves. You cannot save yourself by your own good works. It's the gift of God. It's a gift it's not of your work. Lest any one of us could claim a greater salvation than any other. Because of how much we've prayed or how much we've sacrificed her. How often we've gone to church or how much money we've given away. Or how often we've read the bible or how often we visited the sick? You just fill in the blank, whatever that worked might be. It's not about us. It's all about him. It's all about our Lord Jesus Christ. And what he's accomplished for each of us. We'll be right back after this short break. Please.

Jesus Christ's with your host rake Backes before the break, we left off reading in Fijian's chapter two versus eight nine where it says that we are saved through believing by God's grace that it's not of ourselves. That's the gift of God that it's not of works. Lest any one of us should boast. Well, let's look at verse tan for we are his workmanship. God's masterpiece created in Christ. Jesus onto good works which God hath before prepared that we should walk in them. Finally, there's your good works. Once you are saved. You are completing Christ. You're completeness is when you receive Holy Spirit the new birth. Now, your good work. Wchs proceed out of direction from your heavenly father, by way, of the spirit those good works that he is prepared for you to do before the foundation of the world. It's so important for us to realize that we are saved receive eternal life by God's grace. And then after that we're able to do the good works that our heavenly father works within us. Those good works are a result of our 'obedient to the working within of the Holy Spirit. Philippians chapter two verse thirteen tremendous verse for it is God which works in you, both to will into do of his good pleasure. There's the good works. God works within you. What he has prepared before the foundation of the world that we should walk in and do and perform you are a fellow laborer with the creator of the heavens and the earth. It's his good pleasure. To direct your heart to serve his, well, what might be some of the good works. That are father might work within us to do. Well, let's look at the gospel of John chapter fourteen. We're gonna read here several verses in this chapter will start at verse one and will read all the way through verse sixteen Jesus Christ speaking, he says, let not your heart be troubled, you believe in God believe also in me in. My father's house are many mansions if it were not. So I would have told you I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you. I will come again and receive you onto myself that where I am there. You may be also and where I go, you know, and the way, you know, Thomas said unto him Lord, we don't know where you're going. And how can we know the way verse six Jesus said unto him? I am the way the truth and the. Life. No man comes under the father. But by me, what a wonderful statement of truth. Jesus Christ said that he was the way that he was the truth that he is the life, and that there is no other way unto the one true. God verse seven if you had known me, you should have known my father, also and from henceforth, you know, him and have seen him verse. Eight Philip says unto him Lord show us the father, and I'll be happy Jesus said unto him have I been so long time with you. And yet have you not known me Philip he that has seen me has seen the father. And then how say issue show us, the father believes thou- not that I am in the father and the father and me the words that I speak unto you. I speak not of myself, but the father that lives or dwells in me. He does the works. Believe me verse eleven that. I am in the father. And the father and me or else believe me for the very work sake fairly fairly or a man in a man, I say unto you tremendous verse here verse twelve here are the works. We are to do he that believes on me though, works that I do shall he do also and greater works than the shell. He do because I go onto my father and whatsoever. You shall ask in my name that will I do that the father may be glorified in the sun. If you shall ask anything in my name. I will do it. If you love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the father, and he shall give you another comforter that he may abide with you. Forever. Verse twelve at said, we are to do the same works that Jesus Christ did. Well, what did he do? He healed the brokenhearted by loving them by speaking. God's word he healed. The sick by laying hands on them and praying for them. He set the captives free by ministering to them as the father directed him to do. And then the comforter that he talks about the comforter. That's what the father sent us in the gift of Holy Spirit on the day append cost and available to every believer. Since that day that believes on the Lord Jesus Christ the Holy Spirit abides with us and in us forever. It's the Holy Spirit that directs our hearts to willing to do the father's good pleasure. And then in verse twelve Jesus Christ made the remarkable statement that those who believe on him would not only do the same works that he did. But that they would also do greater works. What could possibly be a greater work? Then what Jesus Christ dead? It could only be something that was not yet available. When Jesus Christ walked the earth. It had to be something that Jesus could not do because it was not yet. Possible to do. And that one thing was to worship God. Truthfully. By way of the spirit, which is to speak in tongues. Speaking in tongues, I became available on the day of Pentecost. When the twelve apostles were all in one accord in the temple, and then they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and it states that they began to speak with other tongues as the spirit gave them the words to speak in an ex chapter two. It says that they spoke the wonderful works of God. And in those words, they magnified God. Speaking in tongues, I became available on the day of Pentecost almost two thousand years ago and is still available today for those who desire to do. So, you know, many denominations many Christians say that speaking in tongues as no longer available and that it was just for the first century church. Well, I believe the word of God stay. It's otherwise it is available for all of God's children to speak. The wonderful works of God. By speaking in tongues. It is the proof in the census realm of the internal presence of the gift of Holy Spirit. Now, surely you can be Christian and not speak in tongues. I know many that do not speak in tongues. But they are born again of God's spirit. Speaking in tongues is not required to be saved because remember salvation is not of your works. But rather it's by the grace of God. But speaking in tongues is a great blessing to the believer with many wonderful benefits. I have been doing it for mo- gosh over forty years, and I know of many thousands of others that do so as well. And if you are interested in if today, you don't operate the manifestation of the spirit of speaking in tongues, certainly feel free to Email me, and I'll send you information, and even depending upon where you live. I may be able to. You in contact with someone in your area that could lead you into speaking in tongues. It's not hard to do. It's just as easy as breathing. We just believe that God will give the words as we open our mouth and speak forth, just as they did on the day of Pentecost. They were all filled with the Holy Spirit. They began to speak in other tongues as the spirit as the Holy Spirit. The gift gave them the utterance the words to speak. You know at the beginning of today's show. I mentioned Shania who made the statement. I hope I'm ready, and that was in the context of having eternal life and being ready at the return of our Lord Jesus Christ. She could only make that statement because she was looking at her own works and not looking at the accomplished work of our Lord Jesus Christ. If Jesus Christ did the work that the word of God says he did. Well, then Shania as he turned life you too you have he turn a life. If you believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. And if you've confessed him as Lord of your life, what a wonderful privilege we have to live with and for God, our heavenly father, turn your eyes upon Jesus. Thank God for the grace. And the mercy that he has shown towards you praise him for eternal life. I. Thank God that it's not of my works. And that it's not of your works. But rather it's because of the work of the Lord Jesus Christ our savior. Emaar week is moment ASI. She give me your head in his spree. I can read the discipline. Written all over.
