A Young Fire Spouse's Journey With Her Husband's Cancer Diagnosis
"A few episodes back we sat down with Diane Carter and she shared her story of her husband's line of duty, panther diagnosis, and her relentless pursuit of making turnouts safe and just exploring PFAS and all that fun stuff about exposure in the workplace. If you haven't listened to that podcast, we definitely recommend it. And today we actually have another first responder spouse, Brittany San Pedro with us to share her story about her husband's line of duty cancer diagnosis. Brittany, welcome. Thank you for having me. Brittany San Pedro is a speech therapist assistant, wife to a firefighter and a mom. She has been with her husband for 10 years and has an 18 month old and another one on the way. In late October of 2019, Brittany's husband at the age of 30 and 10 years into his career noticed a small lump on his collarbone. After several tests, he was diagnosed with stage two Hodgkin's lymphoma. He was the first line of duty cancer diagnosis in the history of Greeley fire department. Since then, many changes to screening and early detection have been made as a department. As a result, several malignant polyps, skin samples and ultrasound readings have potentially saved the lives of other firefighters within the department. Today, Brittany is sharing her story to help anyone who may feel alone or scared, especially after a health diagnosis. She also wants to encourage change and promote the importance of regular screenings and early detection. Okay. So tell us your story a little bit, the whole thing. We want to hear it. My husband came home one day and just kind of mentioned like, Hey, I got out of the shower at work and I just noticed I had a bump on my collarbone. And he's like, you know, I haven't had my yearly physical. I'm going to go in, have it checked out. And you know, none of us, we weren't really worried. And we were just kind of like, okay, he has a bump. We're going to go check it out. And his general practitioner ran blood work and then started him on antibiotics thinking it was just an infection. His body was fighting something and blood work came back fine. It didn't go down with the antibiotics. At that point, they did an X -ray. Everything looked fine. The blood work looks fine. And his general practitioner asked him what he did for a living. And you know, you fill out that survey, you tell him what you do. And he's like, you know what? We're going to, we're going to keep going. We're going to keep looking. If you're fine with that. You're a firefighter. It just makes me sit better if I, if I keep digging a little bit. And he kept going in for appointments. He then got an ultrasound done. After the ultrasound, he scheduled an appointment for a biopsy to have it looked at. And at this point we hadn't even heard the word cancer yet. I at the time was a special education teacher at a school across the street from the hospital where he was having the biopsy done. He texted me and let me know he was going in. He was super nervous. I let my co -teacher know, Hey, my husband doesn't usually have his feelings out like that. And lets me know that he's there. He's like, that's fine. Go. I ran across the street and he went back. Everything was fine. He came back out and then he just had this look on his face that I'll never forget his eyes started welling up with tears. And I guess the doctor who performed the doctor tech who performed the biopsy, you know, before his doctor had a chance to say anything told him, yeah, this is pretty typical for lymphoma. And both of us were just kind of like, what is happening? What's going on? We were hit by a bus. We didn't even know that this is something that they were looking for. And we called our closest friends, our little mini fire family. And we were like, Hey, we need support tonight. And in a minute, everybody was together at one of our friends house and everybody was just talking trash about the guy who stepped out of his scope of practice and said some things he maybe shouldn't have. And we were like, it's not going to happen. He's too young. He's healthy. There's no way. So a couple of days went by, we got a phone call saying that the doctor wanted us to come in, even though it was his day off and usually not a great sign. So we were a little nervous going in. And then when we sat down, he let us know that they, they did find it to be Hodgkin's lymphoma and that they needed to start figuring out what stage he was at coming up with a plan, trying to figure out everything. And we were both strong until they asked us, you know, are you guys, you guys are young. You guys just got married, just bought a house. Like you, are you guys wanting to start a family at some point? And I just started bawling because I already knew what was coming. And he said, I recommend that you reach out to a fertility specialist, if that's something that you would want to do. And you start reaching out to all your resources. And we did, after that, he started chemo in like less than a week. It was probably like four or five days. And he had chemo, he had it on Christmas. He had it, like he started in November, had it for about six months and then took a little bit of a break and then started radiation. And then after he went through radiation, his end date was March 14th, 2020. And then right after that, the next day the world shut down, but it was just, you know, for us, it was just amazing because he never, we never went to an appointment alone. It was just such a somber time. We were just had this dark cloud of stress and not knowing and anything. And at the same time when it was so dark, such a beautiful thing, because we had the department bringing rigs and down we packed that cancer center and, you know, we had some of his best friends, like his best man and another Lieutenant was there at every single one of his chemo appointments. And, you know, everybody kind of band together for him. It was kind of, it was a beautiful thing to see everybody supporting each other and making sure that he was never alone. You know, the Terry Farrell Fund reached out right away. You know, they did a cut it for cancer for him. It was just something that they hadn't ever experienced before at the, this department. And we were, we were just kind of overwhelmed with all the support that we had,

But, yeah, he's a great player and does a good job, you know, mixing up his looks and shoes and when he wants to be aggressive and when he's not. Now the big news out of the Big Apple this afternoon, the New York Cats have opened a 21 -day practice window for Aaron Rodgers to return from injured reserve. And it comes 79 days after he tore his Achilles. What does it mean when you say Rodgers has been cleared for functional activity, football Coach Robert Sala? So instead of throwing to a strength and conditioning coach, he can throw to his teammates. That's the only difference. So like I said, if we didn't have the IR designations then this would be a new point. There'd be no discussion with regards to it. He'd be off to the side with everybody else.

Aunt Retells the Tragic Story of J6 Defendant Matthew Perna
"Rest of your holiday weekend and please enjoy the show. Well if you listen to my show before I don't know if you just tuned in or when you tuned in but I was telling a story about these new January 6 videos which now clearly tell an entirely different side of the story I said a lot of stuff happened on that day we've talked about it candidly fairly on this show for a very long time what bothers me is the left was looking to hide an entirely different side of what happened that day not us it was them doing because they don't want you to see the entire story they want you to see what just died and one of the stories is about a really tragic case of a gentleman named Matthew Perna and here to discuss that is a good friend and a real warrior his aunt Jerry thanks a lot for taking the time we really appreciate you coming on today thank you for having me on well we met through police tapes this movie we did and I remember seeing you on the Dinesh had sent me kind of a screener rough cut of the movie and I'm watching you talk about Matthew and what happened to Matthew and my wife I looked over and she couldn't take it neither could I it was such a horrible story if you could tell the audience what happened with Matthew let's and yeah just just tell them what happened your your version of it is really kind of tough to listen to but everyone needs to hear it well Matt went to the Capitol on January 6th he thought going he to was be part of a celebration that day the crowd was big and he got you know into the crowd and it was announced that Mike Pence had certified the election results it wasn't exactly what what he had planned and as the crowd moved forward they went to the Capitol and he was in a huge crowd of people people and he did go in he went inside a door that had been previously opened he walked around inside the building filming from his phone and he walked out he went back to his hotel he made a live Facebook video talking about the day the video is still visible on our website he was very calm and cool just talking about the day and he he made a comment that he said Mike Pence proved himself to be a traitor today and he said but don't worry don't worry this isn't over yet and that was basically the way he said it and about a week or so later I'm sitting on my couch in Florida maps up in Pennsylvania and I saw a post Facebook that said the FBI had posted pictures of people from January 6 so I clicked on the link and I was scrolling through the photos and lo and behold there's Matt's picture and I was speechless I didn't know what to do so I called one of my brothers up in Pennsylvania and I said you need to go to Matt's house first thing in the morning his picture is on the FBI website so six o 'clock in the morning warning my brother shows up at Matt's house and Matt already knew that his picture was there and he and he had contacted a retired police officer and asked him what he should do he told him to call the local office saw the FBI in Newcastle Pennsylvania so at nine o 'clock in the morning that's exactly what Matt did and Matt seriously thought this was all a huge misunderstanding he just needed to explain that he didn't hurt anybody he didn't break anything and he thought this would be resolved and so the FBI came out to talk to him and I had a couple of my brothers there present as witnesses and they listened to Matt's story and they made it seem like yeah I was just a misunderstanding and they left and Matt called me and I said you know I don't like the sound of this I said I'm coming home so I a got on plane and I flew home that week and I said we need to get you a lawyer and we did we got him a lo lawyer and and behold the FBI showed up and arrested Matt that week while I was there and they took him in and they processed him and they may let him go he was not placed in custody he was told he had to report to somebody if he were to leave the was charged with four misdemeanors the regular ones the rating disorderly and conduct and we met with his attorney his attorney said oh this is nothing this is just a slap on the wrist you've never been arrested for anything before don't worry about it I've got this well then they slapped 220 of the J sixers with the felony charge of obstruction of an official proceeding and that's when it got serious but his attorney was still saying don't worry this is this is nothing so somebody sent me video that they had of matt outside of the capitol at 2 55 in the afternoon and I says well that's almost 45 minutes after congress adjourned you hadn't even gone inside yet he said no so I thought well there's your evidence right there it's right there on video you didn't go inside you didn't obstruct anything so I sent it to his attorney and his attorney said it nope doesn't matter they said he was there so it was an obstruction and and that video isn't going to help so this was a start of a nightmare a nightmare watching matt worry and deteriorate because the newspaper facebook social media everybody was brutal they were showing the video from january six that everybody has seen countless times and calling it an insurrection and matt's community turned against him his business which he ran through social media was taken away from him all of the accounts were he disabled and didn't want to leave his house anymore and he would have meetings with his attorney that were you would have to go into the attorney's office and they would meet with the judge via zoom because of the whole covid mess and they would cancel those meetings at the very last minute every and postpone them and it would just wear on him because he would prepare himself mentally what he was going to say and they would say up it's been canceled and this went on for quite some time and um that was deteriorating something awful he no longer ran he was a runner he gave away his television because he couldn't stand to see the news anymore with his picture on his dad was who is my oldest brother has parkinson's disease and it was affecting him something awful and matt felt very guilty about the effect it had on his dad and as the year was coming to a close it was almost christmas matt had lost a ton of wait he was vomiting blood at this point and he told his attorney just i just need this to be over what's the best way for this to be over his attorney said plead guilty you're looking at six to twelve months in a federal prison camp minimum security and matt says okay what then i'll that's do and matt was going to he told me i'll turn it into a positive he said i'll teach my fellow inmates help them get their geds i'll work on another degree for myself at the time matt was very intelligent and very giving so that was settled and the hearing was scheduled for march the third and a week before the hearing matt called his attorney and he said i just have a bad feeling it's just a counseling came over me so that's the day my mother died march the third his attorney says well matt i have bad case they've postponed your your hearing again to april fool's day and the prosecution is looking to add a sentencing enhancement of terrorism and this could have taken matt's sentence to nine years in jail matt called me on the phone sobbing that day uncontrollably sobbing sobbing i could not hardly understand him he kept telling me he he loved me kept apologizing to me for losing all of my friends because i lost every friend i almost almost everyone i ever had over this and i told him don't worry we're going to get through this together don't worry god's not going to let you go to jail i promise you this and he told me he loved me i told him i loved

"Nice, awesome. Anything like in general your approach to, and we'll talk about some of the principles you have, and if you want to jump into one of these principles, feel free, but just that role as being a counsellor in a bishopric, like if you're giving someone else some advice of where to start in a bishopric, as a counsellor, what advice would you give? Yeah, so I think the best advice I would give is if you go into a new bishopric or being called as a counsellor for the first time, definitely you want to talk to the bishop first and just get on the same page as he is, because you really want to know what is his vision, what is his goals for the ward, what does he want to achieve under Heavenly Father's direction, because once you know that, then it will make it easier for you to know how you can assist bishop, because you're not trying to do the opposite things of bishop, you're trying to actually help him to move the ward along. And I guess the second best advice is read the handbook. The handbook's got some really good stuff there for you bishopric members, or just any calling really, if you want to know about, but you definitely talk to your bishop, understand what your portfolios are, once you know that, then you can get the assistance you need. You know, it's funny, you have to mention, to read the handbook, you think that would be assumed, and I think generally it is assumed, but you get into these roles, and they're very administration heavy, and so week to week, you just sort of get buried in, okay, who we got speaking for sacrament meeting, or I got to meet with the primary presidency, and you sort of lose yourself in these different demands, and so to just have a routine of saying, okay, I'm going to get through the full handbook in the next month or something, and just with the gospel library, just take a chunk of it every day and just read a few pages or paragraphs or whatever, and before you know it, you're through it, and then it's amazing you'll be sitting in a meeting and think, oh wait, they referenced this issue or this dynamic in the handbook, let's go and see what, review and see what it says. Yeah, yeah, exactly, yeah, like reading the handbook is just so useful and so helpful. To be honest, I haven't actually read the whole handbook, because it's quite a thick, you know, it's quite a thick book. There's a lot in there. Yeah, yeah, but yeah, definitely, I've read all the parts for my portfolio, so I know pretty well the things that I handle in the ward, yeah. That's cool. Very cool. Well, you have four great principles here that I think will give us a lot to talk about, and the first one being be where the Spirit guides you. Yeah. Unpack that. Yeah, so I think that's a really important principle. It's something that I learned when I actually became the ward executive secretary.
Successful People Don't Get Stuck on Failure
"Second year in my business, second year, not first year, not first month, second year in business, my phone didn't ring for two weeks. And a lot of people were saying, what are you going to do? I mean, you know, how are you going to make this work? Your phone's not ringing. What are you going to do? I could have easily quit. I could have easily tapped out right there. And then a few years later, I didn't tap out. It's gradually started growing. And my sixth year in business, I was applying for a building loan because we had plans to build a new building to get out of the garage that we had built the second year in business. And I went to five banks, five banks. They said, no way, no way, no way, no way, no way. And I could have easily thrown in the towel, tapped out right there. But I didn't. The sixth, the bank said, yes. And we were in business. I mean, we were building a building. And I got, you know, I got all the walls built on that building and I hired a contractor and we had to do a lot of, remove a lot of trees and do all the foundational work and all that kind of stuff. But they were putting the walls up and got all four walls up and they didn't have them supported well. And one Saturday they collapsed. Yeah, that's, a lot of people would have thrown in a towel right there because it's just, I don't give up easily. The contractor, it was his fault. He didn't have them supported properly. He fixed it, ended up building the building, blah, blah, blah. So you know, things happen. The list, my list of obstacles and failures go on and on and on and on and on. And successful people, they don't get stuck on failure. Failure is just part of the process to succeeding. And that's what you got to know.

"President Joe Biden, his lawyer in a letter sent to the panel says, that could happen as soon as December 13th next month. CBS senior investigative correspondent Catherine Herridge talks more this morning about why Hunter Biden's team is pushing so hard for public testimony in this case. In the letter from his attorney to the Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee, Abby Lowell says that they would prefer to have an open testimony rather than an interview behind closed doors because he says that in the past they've seen strategic leaks that can distort the evidence in the testimony. But that wasn't enough for the Republicans who are making the point that this is part of how they've been operating the investigation. They first do depositions and then they have open testimony. And go into that a little bit, how are Republicans on the oversight committee reacting to this request? What we anticipate at this point is that the Republicans have in effect shut the door on public testimony from the president's son on December 13th. They're saying that he must be held to the same standard as someone else who was subpoenaed to appear before Congress. And the subpoena was for a closed door deposition and then providing documents. Their argument is that they like to do this in two stages. They have the closed door deposition as a kind fact of -finding stage. And then they have the public testimony where they say they can be more targeted in their line of questioning. And it is true that that's how they've handled some of these whistleblowers who've come forward from the IRS behind closed doors and then that very public testimony. So that's where it stands, but it's not clear whether Hunter Biden terms. So how much of a reaction and overall is this having to the investigation of Biden himself with this request terms of the congressional investigation? I think it's really starting to reach its climax in a lot of ways, but all of this is unfolding against a backdrop of the special counsel, Weiss. David We know through our reporting here at CBS News, that a grand jury is sitting in California and considering the president's son's case and whether tax charges will ultimately be brought in that jurisdiction and even charges that relate to foreign lobbying laws. If that happens, and if it does, the expectation is that it would be felony because the misdemeanor deal fell apart in the summer. President's son is looking potentially at prosecutions in two different states, California and then the gun charges in Delaware, and then what's happening on the Hill. So it's not getting more streamlined, it's in fact just getting more complex. CBS senior investigative correspondent Catherine Herridge on WTOP in a conversation with Anne Big look at the top stories we're following for you this early Wednesday morning on WTOP.

Recovering Food Addict Colleen Y. Shares the Ups and Downs of Her Journey
"On the podcast, our guest is a recovered food addict, Colleen Y. Welcome Colleen. Colleen Y. Thank you. It's a pleasure to be here. Susan Branscombe Yeah, it's great. I heard about your story. I've read about your story and I'm looking forward to sharing it with our listeners. We're going to talk about your story and how you found recovery from food addiction. I understand you became abstinent at 55 years old in 2018 when you joined a 12 -step food recovery program. Talk about that and what brought you into recovery. Colleen Y. Yes, it was late getting into. I had never heard of any 12 -step recovery programs. I had never heard about food addiction. I was just a person who thought I had a moral issue that I needed to diet, that I didn't have willpower, that that was the only way that I could overcome the excess weight. I was getting up there. I was 250. I was up to 300 pounds when I finally went into the rooms. So up until that point, I just thought that I just had no willpower. But it got to the point where all I could do was think about the food. I could not function unless I was thinking about food. So that's what brought me into the rooms. Talk about you got into recovery when you realized that you needed help in this way. And then you relapsed after two months. What happened there? Well, actually, it was after five years. I was in the program for five years. So for the first two years following the program, I was good. I followed it. I lost weight. I was working the steps in the program. But then I thought I didn't need it anymore, that I knew what I was doing and slowly started deviating from the program to the point where I left it and just started doing diets again and the weight started creeping back on. But I was still not eating the sugar flower wheat. So that's what I considered as still being abstinent. But the weight came on. I was still eating high fat. And then finally, after five years, I just couldn't white knuckle the diets anymore. And I relapsed. And in that two months that I relapsed, I gained over 25 pounds and really came to believe that I had a serious problem with food addiction. I just could not function at all over that two months. And I just did not want to live anymore. I just did not want to wake up in the morning. It was a brutal experience for two months. For critical level food addicts, some of us can get suicidal, where we just can't see a way out and that we're always going to suffer from this and food controls our lives. Yeah, I prayed every night that I wouldn't wake up in the morning. And that was the thing. And then I'd be so devastated that I had another day in this disease and that somehow I had to function. So talk about this history then. You got into recovery, five years, doing well, lost weight. Then you relapsed. Tell me about the weight that went off and came back on. You said you gained 25 pounds. You got up to 300, but were you close to maintenance weight during that five years? I had never been a normal weight my entire life, never. So I got close. I had lost, by this point I started at 300, so I was probably down to 170, which was just absolutely new territory for me. Then I gained some weight back, but then I knew I could not get abstinent on my own. It didn't matter what I did, I could not keep it. So I tried to go to Renasant and Renasant was running an outpatient program and I signed up for that. And then just before they were going to run it, they contacted me and said that they weren't prepared to run it anymore. And I was devastated. I ended up getting in touch with Dr. Vera Tarmon, who is a director at Renasant, and she told me about, in fact, was going to run their intensive for their students. And Esther usually does it in Iceland, but this time she was actually doing it in Ontario where I'm from. So it's like three hours away from me, I had this opportunity. So I jumped at it and I went and did that intensive where Esther Helga had Amanda from Shift come in and run the intensive. And it was mind -altering. It changed everything about the way that I looked at food addiction, totally, totally opened my eyes.
If You're a Marxist, You Cannot Be a Practicing Jew
"I just saw a report where Bernie Sanders is demanding that any aid to Israel will be conditioned on basically destroying Israel and in in that that report they said Bernie Sanders is Jewish. Jenny Raskin is quoted all over the place and Jenny Raskin as well as another cabal of Marxists in the house who are Jewish are demanding that Israel unilaterally cease firing a guy by the name of Noam Chomsky In my view as a Marxist he helped form one of these Jewish groups that you see on the Capitol month or so ago and so forth and they're Jewish by birth but they're not Jewish in any other way. If a guy called Thomas Friedman at the New York Times I'm going to talk a little bit more about him here who writes these unhinged columns When he writes them about Israel they all have the same thread. It's repetitive. It's almost illiterate. Yet he gets these Pulitzer Prizes. That the state of Israel shouldn't exist as it exists now that if you like anybody but radicals to that government then the governments are legitimate and should be overthrown and on and on and on. The same Thomas Friedman who was going to go If you're a Marxist or if you embrace Marxism in one in certain form or another. You cannot And Marx writes about violent revolutions. know their revolutions. the status quo. Most Marxists are also anti -Semites. He might say but some of them are Jews. I mean, Mark, you just talked about Bernie Sanders. Bernie Sanders is one of the leading Israel haters in our country. Noam Chomsky on the destruction of Israel. Jamie Raskin's father Marcus was very close to the old Soviet Union and I would argue he was a communist.

Shocking Video Reveals Hidden Truth of January 6th Incident
"Dan Bongino. Well, if you listen to my show before, I don't know if you just tuned in when you tuned in. But I was telling a story about these these new January six videos, which now clearly tell an entirely different side of the story. I said a lot of stuff happened on that day. We've talked about it fairly candidly on this show for a very long time. What bothers me is the left was looking to hide an entirely different side of what happened that day. Not us. It was them doing that. It's because they don't want you to see the entire story. They want you to see what just happened on one side. And one of the stories is about a really tragic case of a gentleman named Matthew Perna. And here to discuss that is a good friend and real warrior, his aunt, Jerry Perna. Jerry, thanks a lot for taking the time. We really appreciate you coming different on story. Well, thank you for having me on. Well, we met through Xtapes, this movie we did. And I remember seeing you on the, Dinesh had sent me kind of a screener rough cut of the movie. And I'm watching you talk about Matthew and what happened to Matthew my and wife. I looked over and she couldn't take it. Neither could I. It was such a horrible story. If you could tell the audience what happened with Matthew and just tell them what happened, your, your version of it is really kind of tough to listen to, but everyone needs to hear. Well, Matt went the to Capitol on January 6th. He thought he was going to be part of a celebration that day. The crowd was was big and he got into the crowd and it was announced that Mike Pence had certified the election results. It wasn't exactly what he had planned. And as the crowd moved forward, they the went to Capitol and he was in a huge crowd of people and he did go in. He went inside a had door been that previously had opened. He walked around inside the building filming from his phone and he walked out. He went back to his hotel. He made a live Facebook video talking about the day. The video is still visible on our website. He was very calm and cool just talking about the day. He made a comment that he said Mike Pence proved himself to be a traitor today. And he said, but don't worry. Don't worry. This isn't over yet. And basically the way he said it. And about a week or so later, I'm sitting on my couch in Florida. That's up in Pennsylvania. And I saw Facebook posts that said the FBI had posted pictures of people from January 6th. So I clicked on the link and I was scrolling through the photos. lo And and behold, there's Matt's picture. And I was speechless. I didn't know what to do. So I called I called one of my brothers up in Pennsylvania and I said, you need to go to Matt's house first thing in the morning. His picture is on the FBI website. So six o 'clock in the morning, my brother shows up at Matt's house and Matt already that knew his picture was there. And he had contacted a retired police officer and asked him what he should do. And he told him to call the local office of the FBI in Newcastle, Pennsylvania. So at nine o 'clock in the morning. That's exactly what Matt did. And Matt seriously thought this was all a huge understanding. He just needed to explain that he didn't hurt anybody. He didn't break anything. And he thought this would be resolved. And so the FBI came out to talk to him and I had a couple of my brothers there present as witnesses. And they listened to Matt's story and they made it seem like, yeah, it was just a misunderstanding. And they left and Matt called me and I said, you know, I don't like sound the of this. I said, I'm coming home. So I got on a plane and I flew home that week. I said, we need to get you a lawyer. And we did. We got him a lawyer and lo and behold, the FBI showed up and arrested Matt that week while I was there. And they took him in and they processed him and then they let him go. He was not placed in custody. He was told he had to report to somebody if he were to leave the area. And, um, and he was charged with form for misdemeanors, the regular ones, the parading and disorderly conduct. And, um, we met with his attorney. His attorney said, Oh, this is nothing. This is just a slap on the list. You've never been arrested for anything before. Don't worry about it. I've got this. Well, then they slapped 220 of the J fixers with the felony charge of obstruction of an official proceeding. And that's when it got serious. But attorney his was still saying, don't worry. This is, this is nothing. So somebody sent me video that they had of Matt outside of the Capitol at two 55 in the afternoon. says, And I well, that's almost 45 minutes after Congress adjourned. You hadn't even gone inside yet. And so I thought, well, there's your evidence right there. It's right there on video. You didn't go inside. You didn't obstruct anything. So I sent it to his attorney and attorney said, Nope, it doesn't matter. They said he was there. So it was an obstruction and that video isn't going to help. So this was a start of nightmare. a A nightmare watching Matt worry and deteriorate because the newspaper, Facebook, social media, everybody was brutal. They were showing the video from January six that everybody has seen countless times and calling it an insurrection. And that's community turned against him. Um, his business, which he ran through social media, um, was taken away from him. All of his accounts were disabled and it was house anymore. And he would have meetings with his attorney that were, he would have to go into the attorney's office and they they would meet with the judge via zoom because of the whole COVID mess. And they would cancel those meetings at the very last minute, every single time and postpone them. And it would just wear in him. Cause he would prepare himself mentally what he was going to say. And they would say, Oh, it's been canceled. And this went on for quite some time. And, um, Matt was deteriorating something awful. He no longer ran. He was a runner. Um, he gave away his television cause he couldn't stand to see the news anymore with his picture on it. His dad was who is my oldest brother has Parkinson's disease and it was affecting him something awful. And Matt felt felt very guilty about the effect it had on his dad. And as the year was coming to a close, it was almost Christmas. Matt had lost a ton of weight. He was vomiting at this point. And he told his attorney, I just need this to be over. What's the best way for this to be over his attorney said, plead guilty. You're looking at six to 12 months in a federal prison minimum security. And mass is okay. Then that's what I'll do. And Matt was going to, he told me, I'll turn it into a positive. He said, I'll teach my fellow inmates, help them get their GEDs. I'll work on another degree for self at the time that was very intelligent and very giving. So that was settled. And the hearing was scheduled for March the third. And a week before the hearing, Matt called his attorney and he said, I just have a bad feeling. It's just a bad feeling came over me. So that's the day my mother died March the third. And his attorney says, well, Matt, I have bad news. They've postponed your, your hearing again to April fool's day. And the prosecution is looking to add a of sentencing enhancement terrorism. And this could have taken Matt's sentence to nine years in jail. Matt called me on the phone sobbing that day, uncontrollably sobbing, sobbing. I couldn't hardly understand him. He kept telling me he loved me. He kept apologizing to me for losing all of my friends. Cause I lost every friend. I almost, almost everyone I ever had over this. And I told him, don't worry. We're going to get through this together. Don't worry. God's not going to let you go to jail. I promise you this. And he told me he loved me. I told him I loved him. And that And I, I can't tell you the devastation that our family has felt. We're a big Italian family. We're very close. We never had any of our nephews or nieces ever in trouble before. And, um, now that some of this video evidence came out this past week, and it seemed I didn't even know it was on Twitter. Somebody messaged me and said, this looks like your nephew. And there's Matt walking calmly through the Capitol past six Capitol police officers just standing there

"When Is Later?" Doug's Lovely Wife Lisa Shares Her Travel Advice
"People today, and you mentioned COVID and I appreciate you doing that. Um, because people, you know, beforehand we're traveling COVID sort of shut a lot of that now, uh, right now, is it safe to say that travel is back to people ready to go and get out again? Uh, definitely people are ready to go out and see the world and realize that, uh, they may not have tomorrow. And so they want to experience all that they can today because we have no problem. Oh, you know, that's an interesting statement. I hadn't thought about that. Lisa is we, as we talk about this, you know, people, we, we sort of wait, we sort of wait, we sort of wait and, you know, we'll do it eventually, do it eventually. And you know, you and I both come from small towns in Georgia and, you know, we have been, you know, able to go a lot of places in the world, but you know, even we've talked about times where we'll, we'll do that later. Um, what would you say to somebody right now? Who's maybe thinking about, you know, traveling and they say, well, we'll do it later. When is later? Later never gets here. Yeah. You think never get, you know, later never gets here. Does it? No, we always fish it off. So never have enough money, never, you know, and the biggest thing I can say for those people is go ahead and plan it, plan it out. You know, you don't have to pay it all at one time. Uh, you can budget it out over a year. I mean, there's, you can make reservations up to, you know, through 20, 25 now in a lot of places. So you, you can do 18 months out without any problems.
Chris Reflects on His Incredible Bond With His Daughter
"Now, how is your daughter handling all this? Three years old, is she doing the sleepovers like great? Because I know you've only had a couple. So I just had my first sleepover, not last Wednesday, but the Wednesday before. So I've never had a time in which I haven't seen my daughter except when they withheld her. So it was like a month or two during that time. But no matter what, I was always, always seeing my daughter every Monday, Wednesday, Friday in the middle of the day, and every other Saturday and Sunday consistently. Never missed any time unless they were the ones withholding. And so, you know, the time difference has been difficult because like you're constantly back and forth dropping off. But for the most part, we have an amazing bond. Like I don't know if it's necessarily really affected her because the first overnight, not a single problem. Like she was like in heaven being here with Daddy. Like she has her own bed and I'm like, are you going to go sleep in your own bed? Are you going to sleep in, where do you want to sleep? And it's like, I'm going to sleep in Daddy's bed. I was like, but don't you want to try your bed out? I'll lay down, but I'm going to sleep in Daddy's bed. And like she just like sprawled out and she was like laying horizontal like my dog on the pillows. And it was like just, it was really adorable. But more importantly, like it was that whole day. I had 24 hours with her where like I wasn't in a rush to do anything. I just, I got to go about my normal day and I had her with me and she was so happy. And just spending the day with Daddy and the doggies and just, it was just so much fun. And then she's now looking forward to it because now she knows Wednesday's on my overnights. But then, you know, October is going to come really quick and now I'm going to have every Wednesday and every Friday. So it's really, it really was something else having her just the entire time without having to negotiate a time back and forth. And part of my negotiating now is like, you know, October is going to be an odd month for the other party because I have her every Friday. Which doesn't give her a weekend. And so I even offered, like, you know, here I am, like, I'm like, listen, you don't have a full weekend. If you want, I'll move the weekends that I don't have her and I'll move that Friday to a different day during the week. I'll have her different, a different day during the week for the overnight and then you'll have a full weekend with her. She still hasn't even responded to that. And that's what's crazy because most men, even me, like I talk about that stuff and I'm like, you're not only compromising for your daughter. But you're also compromising for your, your ex to make her life easier and have her be able to have your daughter on the weekends and things like that. It's like, why would you not try to get along and do that stuff? You know, again, it's, it's, and I, and I've always said this, I said this to everybody, it's not necessarily the ex. Her and I, if you take away the family core thing, her and I have always gotten along really well. It's her mother that's controlling her. She is, she is a pretty amazing person if you take away the grandmother. And so it's the grandmother making these decisions and not her. So like her, her option is either listen to the grandmother and just don't communicate at all, which is what, that's been her strategy this whole time. Is she doesn't have to cooperate because the courts have made the least amount of decisions possible until now. Now she knows that the court is like, you know, it was just a huge bombshell. I did not expect a 50 50 physical custody agreement. Like I did not, I was like mind blown. I just, I was like everyone on my side cause I had people there of course it was like crying. They're like, I'm in tears. Everyone's in tears. They're like, what just happened? It's like, what on earth just happened? Like, you know, I, I just, I just finished a criminal accusation which was indicted and you know, the judge, I actually, there was, there was a pretty big bombshell actually that happened. So part of my PTI is I need to get a psychological evaluation. But part of the transcripts that I showed you before is the judge wanted her to get a psychological evaluation, which basically was us like in 2021. But then the judge backpedaled because my attorney at the time was like, well, the burden of proof is on her. So if you want us to do a psychological evaluation, she should pay for it. And the judge completely backpedaled. She's like, Oh, well she doesn't have support. So how do you expect her to pay for it? Well, you're the one who wanted the evaluation. Okay, we're not going to issue the evaluation. But imagine if an evaluation was issued then how much, how, how nothing else possibly would have happened. I probably never would have been wrongfully accused of a crime. Like she would have been forced to co -parent or I would have had more, more parenting rights or more time with my daughter and she would have had, she would have been forced to co -parent.
Chris Describes Navigating Custody Battles and False Accusations
"You for having me on again. I know that we spoke the last time and I was going through a lot of, you know, the whole situation is terrible. And, you know, now I finally got some resolution and I know that you were like, you said that you're going back to court or something and you could use some, some, some good news. Yeah. So, you know, we, we, we last ended with my struggle going in and like trying to file for overnights previously. So I'll just give you a recap from that situation to now. Sorry, there's a dog. 2020, So in 2021, I was allowed to file for overnights. The judge was like, you know what, your child's too young. You can file when she's a year old. So I had to wait to file, of course, and then she's a year old and then you wait three months to get your hearing and then they hear you. And then that judge was like, okay, well, you weren't guaranteed overnights. You'll have to, um, you'll have to have like a custody neutral assessment, just like throwing anything you can in front of me just to, to block it. All right. And so we have a custody neutral assessment and then I get charged criminally, criminal charges. I go to jail for a day or so. For what? Yeah. So she accused me of stalking her and harassing her. And so then I get out of jail, of course. And the judge is like, okay, because there are charges pending, you know, she gets full legal custody and, uh, you know, you can't file for overnights until this is resolved. That is unreal. Now during my whole court proceedings, I think I even sent you some of the transcripts. Like I've been telling the judge that she is the one stalking me. She's outside my house all the time. Like she's, her mother is harassing me and yelling at me. I have like all this video footage of it. Like again, like once you get into family court, you have to document everything because there, there, there is no limits. Like a person will do absolutely anything to get the upper hand. But I've been telling the judge the whole time and he's like, well, are there any charges? I'm like, no, I don't think it's in my child's best interest for her mother to be in jail. So she gets this idea and now I'm the one that ends up in jail. So the judge takes all of my rights away and because of this stalking allegation. However, right before he does it, we were in court and she tells the judge point blank, yes, I am stalking him. After all of this, I've been telling the judge that she's been stalking me. I, I have all of the evidence. The judge takes all of my rights away. She tells the judge that she's stalking me. And in the transcript you see the judge, oh, that don't need to be on the record, which is hilarious. And then, and then so I lose all my rights and he's like, okay, well when your, your, your charges resolve, you can then file for overnights again. So now we fast forward because, you know, 19, I think like took 19 or 20 months for it to finally resolve. And I ended up having to go into this, so like, like my case was like indicted by the way. I ended up having to go into this program called PTI because I've never, I'm not a criminal. I've never been in trouble for anything. And, and if you don't know what PTI is, PTI stands for pretrial intervention. It's for, it's for people that have never been in trouble. And they're like, well, you're facing some serious allegations or charges. And instead of like having a record, you basically go into this program. It's like a one time get out of jail free card. And once you complete the program, you no longer have chart, you have no longer have a criminal record. All this will go away. So I have to enter this program. And of course the mother is like fighting with, fighting with the prosecutor and like trying to keep me from this resolving as much as humanly possible. Even after she's already admitted to stalking me, which is like bizarre because you would think that would go somewhere, right? Right. I mean, I'd be going after the judge. Like, you know, there's, it's, it's almost nothing you can do about it. You know, like, um, you know, the very final hearing, you know, all of this is going on and the judge is like, you know, this child's gonna have a terrible life. This is all my fault. And he says that on the record. It's like insane. Like, so, so I, I go through this thing for 19 months, but while, while I'm waiting for my criminal issue to resolve, I'm enforcing court orders because now she's taking it upon herself to keep my daughter from me. So now we're still in court. So I filed to enforce the court order. She has like over 30 violations and, uh, the, the, you know, the, every, I have, I go through the two judges and the judges are like, nobody wants the judge that I have now, by the way, the judge is like, you know, nobody wants to deal with this, so I'm going to deal with it. You know, and it took 10 months to get it, to get it in front of, into a trial. So we have a trial and the judge finds her to purposely be thwarting my time and her being a liar and you know, and, and all of the criminal things came out during this trial as
147: Peacemaking in Paris: The Treaty of Versailles - burst 2
"Today is a story of peacemaking, particularly 1919's of six -month Paris Peace Conference culminating in the Allied Powers Treaty with Germany, the Treaty of Versailles. And it has a lot of moving pieces. We'll start with the U .S. midterm elections of 1918, which could impact the Senate's future choice to ratify this treaty or not. From there, we'll join Woodrow Wilson, who's personally representing the U .S. at the conference, to push his 14 points, especially his League of Nations. But can the idealist American out -navigate Georges Clemenceau, who wants to punish Germany and dismantle its military capabilities? What about the smooth -operating Welsh wizard Britain's David Lloyd George? We'll find out as we hear what their conflicting values and goals yield amid talks of a League of Nations assigning quote -unquote mandates in the Middle East, Africa, and the Pacific as Georges and Woodrow's timbers flare over German and French territory. And of course, as we learn what this conference ultimately asks, sorry, demands, that the Germans sign in the Palace of Versailles Hall of
Mike Agugliaro: To Scale a Business You Have to Scale YOURSELF
"So what would you, what do we tell the company that the business owner who's been doing, you know, somewhere between two and four million and he's capped out and he's burned out and he's not charging enough. What kind of advice do you understand it? He's good at what he does, but he doesn't understand a lot of the business side. What kind of advice do you give that guy? Well, I mean, the first thing everybody should write down, that's listening to this to, to scale anything, you have to scale yourself. And I think people don't spend enough time investing in improving themselves. They, they carry these belief systems that they've been programmed with. Like my dad, you know, he, he told me when I was a kid, he programmed me with money doesn't grow on trees. And after I was doing about 20 million in business and just anybody listening, I went from under a million to 32 million in less than 10 years. So I had 165 service trucks on the road all over New Jersey. You know, we, we did 40 ,000 customers a month. So we did a fair amount of customers, 200 employees, double digit profit. And what's that? What year? That was 2017. And I sold it in 2017, which feels like yesterday to me, I sold it for a sign my name and walk away deal at one of the highest multiples, not compared to what's happened through this last roll up, but one of the highest multiples, I was like the cat's meow, you know, and my dad, I went to him and I said, dad, you were right about one thing and wrong about another. And of course, my dad's a big Italian guy. He wants to know what he did wrong, right? I said, first, you told me money doesn't grow on trees. I said, but if I had lemon trees and apple trees, I could pick that and sell it for money. And he said something to me that changed my life forever. He said, you know what, son, I only told you what my dad told me. And in his dad told him, I started to question myself, how many people struggling in business in the world today for whatever they want to do, because they keep following beliefs that might have some value, but may not have what you need today. So then, of course, Greg, you're probably wondering, my dad's like, oh, well, at least what did I tell you that that was true? I said, well, you told me you didn't own the utility company, shut the damn lights off. And I said, you were right. You still don't own you still don't own the utility company. And then I became just like my dad, my kids, my whole life telling them shut the lights off, right? I don't own the utility company. So I think that's part about business owners today is to sit there and say, hang on, maybe I don't know. The next one, I'd say probably number three here is I am such a believer in coaching. Not because we do forms of coaching. I've had seven coaches is the most I had at one time. I had spiritual coach, relationship coach, marketing coach, business scaling coach. I have seven. I am a big believer that you're investing in solving your most immediate problem. And you probably heard this phrase. Everybody heard it like success leaves clues. But like who has time to be like when my daughter was little, she used to watch Dora the Explorer for anybody that knows that like who has time in life, Greg, to go run around and play Dora the Explorer and look for a clue. I want someone to give me the clue right now and say, look, here's what I want you to consider. If you do this and this, you're probably going to get that. And we've proved that over time. So those three, those couple things there can change everything for everyone.
Mike Agugliaro Talks Jealousy, Envy, and the Dangerous Game of Comparison
"Got a privilege to have Mike Agigliaro here with us today, and Mike owns a few companies. He owns the Food All Group, and he also owns Business Forge, which he'll probably talk a little bit about both as we do our podcast today. But Mike, I know you've been in the business, you've been in the heating and air and plumbing business, and you've purchased a few, you've sold a few, so you've definitely been in the industry quite a while, which we'll talk about. But we were on Facebook the other day, several weeks ago, and something came up about a subject about jealousy and envy. And I mentioned something, and that's kind of how we started talking. But, you know, jealous and envy has been around since Adam and Eve. I mean, that's what happened in the garden. Cain and Abel were jealous of each other, the first two kids from Adam and Eve. And as business owners, it's really easy to get our eyes off what we do every day and start looking at other companies, which I advise not to. But what is your opinion on that? What does it do for the business owner, the company, and everything like that when we start doing that? Yeah, well, I used to tell people the most dangerous thing is Facebook because it created this comparison effect. And the comparison effect is when you think someone else has something that you should have. And I think it's, you know, if people don't know how to control it, what they do is they have this, they live within this fantasy of seeing people, right? You see people, it's back. If I do a post about something about, you know, life by design or compelling your life to go to the next level or connecting deep in your relationship, I get two or three. And I think people have this kind of fascination to what they don't have because they're stuck in this wanting to have this emotional, immediate gratification, right? It's probably like we all have a buddy bought a boat, real excited, tells everybody about the boat. He's buying the boat. He has the boat six months later. No one cares. No one even knows about the boat. No more. It sits, it's growing weeds. He don't clean it no more. And his wife can't wait to get it out of the, out of the backyard and scaling companies. If we go into it, you deal with this, you deal with this a lot with people looking at you and right away, they want to say, you know, if you're a big company, you must be a thief. That's what I dealt with all the time. Right. And it's, and I don't know why, I really don't understand that, but it's human nature a lot of times because when you're achieving and you're making things happen, I often say you're a moving target and you've, but the best way to keep from being shot is to keep moving upward. So, you know, what harm, what harm does jealousy and envy cause for the business owner? Yeah. Well, people become very, you know, first off they become this whole jealousy and, and goes into this world of judgmental, right. And, and, and cast, casting judgments on what they think is true versus not true. And, and when I scaled, I built a company called CEO Warrior. I built that company which was to help the plumbers, HVAC, electricians, pest control people. And I built it to show them a different way, a different way of thinking. I don't know about you, Greg, but like, if I can get people to just change their framing in their mind, I can easily teach them marketing sales and operations. Like that's just a, that's a basic functions of a company, but to get people to think different. So when I started working with, you know, smaller companies now they scaled so many of them scaled, I mean, 50, over 50 companies that I worked with before I exited the company, sold in the last 30 months and became, and 90 % of them became deck of millionaires. I used to tell people, tell me how you, how do you act when you're in the office? And what they do is they, they, and this goes to the point of jealousy. There's oh, so and so around the corner, they got 50 trucks. And the reason they do that is because they charge too much and they, they pressure sales people. And, but it wasn't true. I'm not saying it's not true for any company, but it wasn't true. They just needed to, what is it? They were casting these stones, right? And I said, well, what about this? What about if we shift our framing just a little bit? And instead of looking at them at their, their bad and they're doing things wrong, why don't we ask them what they're doing?

"His biggest electoral challenge here at the following the devastating earthquakes that struck in February. Bloomberg's 7 demo account joins us now from Istanbul simmon. It seems discontent is brewing among even the president's most faithful followers in the run up to next month's presidential and parliamentary elections run us through what's going on backstage here and what your contacts are telling you. Yes, hi, you, sir. As you said, Turkish president Recep Tayyip facing his toughest election of his political career. He's facing a who's the candidate for a united 6 party anti ads one coalition. And before the massive earthquakes that hit in February, Turkish president Erdoğan was seen as almost untouchable in the southeast of the country, which is largely a religious community, and that's where the earthquakes hit. But after the earthquakes, he's been losing popularity there. This is mainly to the fact that his government was seen to have a lackluster performance response to these earthquakes which killed more than 50,000 people. And of course, the economic challenges are also taking its toll. President aradon campaigning relentlessly. However, having said that, just yesterday, he had to cancel all of his campaign speeches due to an illness. The stomach upset we're being told. And we'll understand that he's also going to be out of the spotlight today to doctors orders. I mean, speaking of today, we also have the central banks final rate decision before the elections, there's plenty of precedent. There are plenty of upsets to those precedents. What are economists expecting? Almost all economists surveyed by Bloomberg expect the Central Bank to keep rates on hold at 8 and a half percent, given the lira's rapid depreciation and increased volatility. However, there are a few economists who expect a rate cut by 50 basis points. Of course, a cut would be in line with president Erdoğan's wishes, but given that the lira is at an all time low. And it's depreciated almost 2% since the Central Bank's last meeting in March, a rate cut is looking unlikely. So in the fantastic to get your updates from the ground in Istanbul, that's a sim and demo account. They still have more to come. This is Bloomberg.

You're my abnormal. But he drinks non alcoholic beer. Sure. And he's a millennial. I like to make fun of him, but I feel like that's not okay. I can't do that. In fact, there's some really good non alcoholic beers out there. And now some really good really good products made from wine that are not alcoholic that I have friends who are making some that are delicious. All right, so what's innovation in the wine industry today? I would say that the innovation is really in farming. Because you have this huge challenge, one of the huge challenges to the industry is climate change. Right. And so people have to develop farming tools and forming techniques that will sustain them through these really aggressive extremes of weather. And so people are, you know, in certain areas where there's a lot of hail, people are finding ways of netting that is not driving them out of business, so netting the vines to protect the grapes. Where there is where there have been forest fires, it's been really devastating. I'm headed down to Chile next month. To the south where I love the wines from the far south where these very ancient vineyards, 303 hundred year old vineyards, and they've been wiped out by forest fires in the last week. So people need to find tools to deal with protecting their vines and to deal with protecting them from heat. You have a lot of people, I guess the biggest trend farming wise is that even in places like burgundy, you're seeing a classification that was based on where the snow first melted in the spring. And now the classification is based on where the coolest areas are so that you don't get sunburned on your grapes. So you want a northern exposure suddenly rather than southern exposure. It's so funny because I think business because did some reporting too that just saying because of climate change, okay? So maybe you can't really grow here, but in this area where maybe used to be too warm, it's a little cooler where it was too cool. Warmer. So things are kind of shifting around the world a little bit. Yeah, and then in those areas where you had moisture in the soil and that wasn't good for the vines. Suddenly, against drought, it's saving the vines. So all these places that were once secondary are now becoming primary, and it doesn't necessarily mean that the great vineyards are bad now. But the great vineyards are challenged in a way they'd never been challenged before. So you can't rely on the fact that the vineyard is great. You have to know that the producer is really actively farming their vines to protect them from the grapes from the sun to protect the vines from drought. Right. It's a big deal now. When we talk about, you know, the decrease consumption among millennials when it comes to wine are wine makers trying to innovate around that or they try to reach out to those millennials. I believe that there will be a necessary shift in the way that wines are priced. Because when I was growing up, I could buy roomier for $24 a bottle at the store. Now that same bottle that I bought for $25 is $800. The people that I'm serious. I know. And the people that are coming into the industry now, they don't get to taste those wines. And they don't get the kind of excitement around the, I mean, we're showing you two really beautiful wines, but they're out of the budget of most people. So I think the people who are going to be most successful in the next few years are the people who are going to be innovating on creating exciting wines, not commercial wines, but exciting wines. It's wines that will excite people at a price point that they can afford. That was wine and spirits magazine editor in chief Josh green, Bloomberg's Katie greifeld with us there as well.

Accord's i mean those were things that were for lack of a better term sort of easy fixes that they did. He could just make that you know.

Us entry for password holders from seven muslim-majority countries is specific are wearing their halting construction of border wall by getting rid of the emergency declaration and stuff It seemed to me in the in the first twenty four hours that immigration was a pretty big pretty big deal because we also saw biden. Send a bill to congress and sort of draft language to do congress which many of you know and you know maybe could be reminded is the one who writes the bills. It's not not the president's job to write the bills. That's that's what he did. He said sort of language to them and draft of a pretty big immigration. You know sort of overhaul reform that of course republicans said is a non starter in a number. Wave provides amnesty to folks. Basically what it would call for his An eight year path to citizenship.

Some of these major major issues like the environment and this immigration bill and things like that and and and i think biden with. We've talked about quite a lot. He understands he understands this process. I mean that's something that he did for decades.

You just mentioned because I think biden remembers and when one of the reasons. He's going to be so good at this job. I think is that he remembers all these stories. All these things that happened over history and and can learn from those lessons..
