L. here realize he did but elliott crazy. Now it'd be. I'm being shamed because i enjoyed something. I enjoyed something you guys didn't and now i'm getting shamed for it. You guys should be ashamed of yourself. Should be ashamed of yourselves. Enjoyed it man. i just didn't love it there. You go yeah. I say i say the next best thing in the world i i did enjoy myself all right. You guys are fucking on the attack. This episode got like a fucking wounded animal. Trying to fucking send you guys off. And i feel i feel like the fucking vultures circling because i enjoyed this fucking movie taken like your pecking at me and i'm not even dead yet. I think this is a movie that you should have enjoyed. I liked it Did you give it a tupperware. No i gave it a high tasted. I want to be mocked thoroughly. It was yeah. I backed off avid. You're not scribbling up right next thing i want to talk about a spiral who got a chance to see spiral. Okay yeah this is a theatrical release working in the shadow this is spiral saw. So this is the ninth installment in the saw film series. It's working the shadow of his father. Detective ezekiel zeke banks and his rookie. Partner take charge of an investigation into grisly murders. That are eerily reminiscent of the city's gruesome past unwittingly trapped in a deepening mystery. Zeke finds himself at the center of the killers. Morbid game stranded by darren. Lynn boozman his fourth film of the series and written by josh stolberg and peter goldfinger film. Stars chris rock max miguel. Marisol nichols and samuel. L. jackson and yeah original creators of the series. James want and lebron l. Serve as executive producers alongside. Chris rock in this one. So i'm just going to start off by saying i watched the first three saw movies and then i kind of dropped off after that. So this is my first. Like venture back into the saw franchise. I love the first one second one. Okay and then. I just did not like the third one and these movies just became just torture torture torture and i just could not watch them anymore. I was like okay. I get it. How many different brutal ways can we kill people. But i was like this. One's got chris rock. It's got samuel jackson. I'm gonna get this shot. So i kind of figured this one. Let's not spoil this billy. All right i feel. I feel all right all right jon. Berg does not in it. So we know he's there were safe. We're safe. I'm not upset. It's but yeah. I kinda guessed like the big thing pretty early on in the movie and you know i guess the big twist very early in the movie and i don't think that really affected by rating over. I think that like. I really think that chris rock carey's this movie like without chris rock in here like at the beginning. He's he's very funny and and you know when he's talking with his new partner that he takes on trying to figure out who's doing these murders and everything. I love some of the exchanges that they have but overall i i. It was not a great movie..

And your side do have a game in hand well for more on. Stephen nichols and headmaster racial most principal vine the day Stephen i spoke teacher in this game. That was a lot of five language but in the end all worked town. Listen for for thirty minutes. I was thinking one and liverpool going to wake up here because manchester united would complete and utter control and then just just a bit lock it phillips within a second ball and enjoy goal where a nice little flick through his legs and the game completely turned on his head from the next half will complete control and and i'm watching the game and i'm thinking himself as unusual all do manchester native mass hiring mcguire.

"It. Oh i did hear it. And i didn't understand it happened. A couple times kris travis. To be honest you very dry. And i never know when you're joking. Or when you're being serious part of maya mystique the word you're looking for but you throw me under the bus. You said if it's feels good to have somebody understand me. Does it feel bad to be china. Is it felt good to have someone appreciate the joke. I appreciate you. Also here's the other thing. I then started a second. Guess if i made the wrong reference to what was it a reference to it because you when you about mortal kombat. Myrtle and i said you yelled get over here. Yeah then you're like. Dan does the the the finisher. i'm like. Nobody got it somebody over here. What is it. And i'm but i'm like did i mess up the get over here part and i didn't just isn't it in mortal. Yeah but i just said said. I don't play the game and it's not for me so wasn't to christine and katie. Just they just don't like me travis. We love you. I just don't like mortal kombat. I'm sorry i left you out to dry but you know my people. Up doing one guy person. Hey listen one person. Listen i will just say the thing. I've started to notice myself become really sensitive to is when someone says katie. Missed this because unlike. Excuse me i listened harder than anyone i've ever met travis has had moments where i make a point and travis makes the opposite point that i just made and i'm like travis. I just said that i will stop listening to your defense. There's a lot going on especially people. Don't see the video part of that and there is lot so all i'm doing is listening so when someone tells me i didn't hear something what take it. Pert listens more intently than you between the three of us which is annoying. I bet tweeted during the podcast. Christina's out in the podcast is often not gonna lie. It's next to me off. Because i sent you a texter in this interview to help you out and you didn't get it there. It is is an hour ago october. Seven seventy two thousand fifteen. Rachel nichols interview travis. So nice and helpful of you. But i can't if i look at my phone i'll lose my train of thought i'll start playing. Didn't give you the not so your phone. Yeah i just love talking to. Rachel nichols and i hope everybody understands. Why new favorite she's a. She's really remarkable. She's really remarkable. She's the thing. I wanted to ask her about that. I'm gonna have to ask her about last time next time if something. She brought up our last interview. Which is that. She used to say again. I told ya been quoting this interview for years. She has to say that I was like how do you not let your twitter mentions affect your life. How do you not that. Take over everything you do. And she was like. Look when. I leave work and i come home. I close the door and when that door is closed the only way you can get into my home as i invite you in. She's not going to invite in a bunch of people who are yelling at me. That would upset me. I know that it would upset me. So i won't invite them into my house and i was like that makes logical sense and yet here i am scrolling through twitter inviting a whole bunch of strangers into my home but i wanted to know if that if she still has that approach because i know my approach to social media has evolved over the years. I've never talked to her. Met her anything and suddenly i feel like Big could be french. It's an it is an honor. I don't know what i did to make her be so nice to me but she has always been so kind to me one of the things. I've missed the most in this pandemic other than literally. Everything is running into people that you run into at things. Sports has all these little events throughout the year where we all kind of each other and it's like oh hey whether it's the super bowl or like all star week or ulcer weekend but with rachel's always the one that i'll see and then we both get a bottle of wine and just sit for a long time and buy a bottle. I mean you know a a bottle of pm or after its later. Usually she's she's just a great hang. She's a great person to like. Sit and hang out with and she'll tell you if she thinks he did something dumb but she'll be nice about it and she'll tell you if she thinks somebody else did something dumb and the neither of you have to be all that nice about it. She's she's very she's a lover. I'm so grateful for her. And i also next time. Wanna talk to her about how she is with younger. Women were very uplifting in a career that most not everybody is. I wanna know why she's like that. But i guess nicole's 'cause she's at did you say team nichols. She also gave me great advice on children. That i being thirty four should probably check back in with her so yeah. That's a nice tease. For the next time we have rachel nichols travis's new best friend Back we love her. We support her She somebody that. I think that you guys should you know know about whether you like basketball or not. Very very smart and And she's great. She's a good resource boom now. Rachel nichols you guys know her a little bit better. Hope that is it for this week. Second edition of sports showed up the flame bearers podcast until jewish. Listen to but you know an and this is out of respect. I don't listen to it before you. Listen to the recent episode of sports. I don't think of this podcast twice before i was going to ask you. Those means they should we tell them they can listen to this once. Then go listen to flame bears as an official podcast sponsor of this podcast and then go listen for the second time to sports. I think this is what's play best. Listen to this podcast..

"I do have to have to talk to you last. Because i just got the wave from someone in my household being. Are you shoot. Yeah been keeping for too long. You haven't been keeping me for just the right amount of time. I seven thousand. Other things i want to ask you but we'll have to do it again. Another time means you'll have on again. I mean if you'll do it. Rachel i'd have you on every day and you always feel like i'm bugging you because you know that you're not you don't do it. You're just thank you for being so good and also so good at at you know sharing yourself with people i. It's so helpful to me to have you as a person i can be like. Let me talk to rachel. She'll help me figure out things so thanking here. My i adore you such a great job. Everybody should watch the jump. Is the podcast down the yes. The jump has daily podcast. That is the podcast version of our show. Which i know is not as cool as like an original pot. I get it. I know it's time. Okay yes podcasts are definitely the coolest in having one makes me cooler than you that i put this on tv. We all know that. I'm new harder. Cooler exactly so much from your with john. Les refund i want right. I'll talk to you soon. Love you goodbye. goodbye travis. I just met you know i'd like to. I don't love you like located. But i do like you. She's so easy to talk to. Just keep rolling on this and throw to the end of the episode. Because isn't very normal reaction. What before do not google did you google. She's no. I've been aware of this. Yes i saw like. Somebody say something vaguely like this a long time ago and forgot to ever follow up on it so her telling me is just gonna make me wanna google it but i'm gonna just stick with it. I assume it's going to be something to do with like a penis. Maybe is it a penis if you just listen to me for this. Listen one time. Take my word visiting so wait. Sorry for the record. I only ever have ever have to listen to you ever again. Okay or listen to you prior but go ahead just the one time okay. That's it don't google it but can you can you confirm or deny the involvement of a genitalia. Say just don't do it people this one time. Listen to you me okay. But you've done. Here's the thing you're asking people to trust you. And what have you done to build that trust. Rachel also said don't do it okay. That's that's your best argument you've ever made in your entire career. So do the ad read now or will we have done it already. A mission it now flares. It's a podcast in a champions. The women seeking to compete in the two thousand twenty one tokyo summer olympics and paralympics and flame. Bears is part sponsor of this podcast. So you should go listen to it. It shares their incredible often unheard stories as they liked the way for women around the world. celebrate women. athletes don't receive the media attention. They deserve as problematic. And you know it is. Because as rachel said to representation matters she grew up thinking that a woman covering an nfl team was absolutely normal. And that's what the goal is is for enough kids to not know that this was once difficult for certain people to do a lack of representation makes it near impossible for younger girls to see their future selves. Someone who doesn't exist today. Now that's a hard thing to like understand if you don't relate to it but it's a great demonstration of empathy if you can understand somebody else doesn't get to look at any job see themselves and go. Oh i can do with that person's doing so that's what flame. Berries is all about one of the episodes features becky sauerbrun. She's of the. Us women's national team a soccer team. She's wonderful. I love her. I've met her personally Not close enough. That i can ask her to do this. Podcast but i will say she's very smart very interesting Certainly has a perspective. That's worth listening to She's an olympic gold medalists beckie shares her life changing experiences in the latest in her teams fight for equal pay. We all need hope and inspiration now more than ever more. Those yoga words rachel's talking. I was just called her nichols. I've never called her nichols in my life. That rachel nichols over there. Talking about Learn lessons in britain. Ambition from these elite athletes. As i like to say who happened to be female. So listen to flying bears on apple podcasts. Spotify wherever listening to this podcast. Or wherever listening to your other podcasts. I don't know maybe you keep things separate. I don't know life. Maybe you listen to your business on one platform and you listen to your phone on another. I don't judge you. I if there's one message this podcast i hope has gotten through to you. Folks it's i don't judge you. I'm not here to judge you. hustle hope. I'm not here to be judged. It's going to happen traffic. Can we air out a beef real quick before we end the podcast. Sure you jumped into the sub right at the other day noticed. You've been doing that a lot and you threw me under the bus. Somebody said travis deserved more of a laugh for some joke that you made that i read and didn't remember happened.

"I know tons of women who stood up and felt proud of themselves. When you push back on goodell in that press conference and the other thing that stands out from. I remember sitting in my apartment in jersey city watching you do a monologue about floyd mayweather and being for an interview. That's what it was and you pushed him. You pushed back on him. You were like you pled guilty so you can't say this now. It was remarkable. Remarkable at your job. You have this confidence that i completely wak and currently working on i guess you i mean i think the thing of mine that blew up about in regards to rewrite was that i said i was in a room with goodell and i didn't have the balls to ask the question because i thought somebody would call out my credentials and be like. Why do you even get to be in this room. And so i- affectively silenced myself. And then i watched you not silence yourself and i think something clicked. Oh you just have to kind of do it It's it's a look. It's never easy rate on but to me. It is easier to be brave about stuff that boils down to not being. It's not hard hit women. Don't be children licnen. it's just. It's just a link to me when we get into that stuff. It's not nuanced. i'm sorry it's not like problems nuance situations or nuance. There's never time. We're that stuff's okay. There's never well. Because she said this or she did that or oh. Don't you understand about this or whatever. It's not okay. And so to me. Whether roy me whether or roger goodell and i think that was part of a time in america where we kind of started to as a culture stand up and say actually no you don't get to in may whether case. His son wrote this heartbreaking. It is on the internet. Don't google but google this because it is worth looking at a heartbreaking letter about his father beating his mother that he will for the court case for the police and like. I'm sorry i'm not going to be ashamed or upset or or scared to ask someone a question about that because it just wrong and that's kind of where when i have to ask hard things it feels to me like i get some of the nerve or whatever it's called because it just feels like what okay to me. This feels not negotiable. Yeah it's sort of like once you force yourself to read that stuff once you force yourself to dive in on it you becomes like a will not gonna not like i can't on the fear is that it's like there's something you don't know i remember i remember not knowing anything about floyd mayweather. Not doing anything about tv. Doing an episode of crowd goes wild. We had floyd mayweather as a guest. I held up with imposed a picture my instagram and everybody was like what are you doing and i was like what am i doing. Oh my god. I didn't know and so then i looked everything up and being like oh my god. What was i going. But that's okay reading. You don't know right in one. Oh it's like now. I now i know what i want. I don't think. I don't think anyone in the media or anyone in their life has to be like the stewart of all fixed rate is okay not to know. It's okay to come out afterwards. They actually. I didn't know that. And now i know and i would do differently and i also think by the way the flip side for anyone. We're talking about and that includes the floyd mayweather of the world if you decide to have contrition and grow and change. It is my opinion that there is room for that. Floyd mayweather has largely not done that at all. So so so you know. I'm not saying that he falls into this category right now but i have also had people come at me to be like. Wow you were upset with mayweather question. Roger goodell but how could you talk to someone so and my answer is always like wool stories. Don't end lifestyle like that actually credits. There's no like okay this. Is it the books closed on this person. The credits rolled. that's it. They go away the little box. Forever like life continues. I hope that we all have the chance to like get better after we got. Because i've certainly. I haven't made floyd mayweather beating my child mistakes but i have made other kinds of mistakes and like you just if if we don't allow people room to get better. What what the hell are we do it like you. What are they going to be away. They're not you can't you. Don't wanna hope for somebody to be in like the wicked witch of the west. You're not like four water on them and it looks like what are we hoping for whether it is like a hardened criminal lake that we'd been gets after serving his or her time gets out of jail. The hope is that there is an opportunity to grow and changes person and become a force for good in the world. And maybe because of what you have done wrong not we've gone through but what you have done wrong up that you have an even deeper understanding we have an tyson. I use this example a lot listening to mike tyson. Talk now like man. You are smarter because of mistakes. You've made i wish you hadn't made them but since we can't go back and change the fact that you've made them This is what i would have hoped for. Is that an outbreak. You can be somebody who speaks on things in a way. That's like you have a deeper understanding. You have something valuable to add. Not to say he's never gonna make another mistake. Don't want to say you know but it's just like a yeah. There's that moment where you're like you you've demonstrated to me. That's the issue for me with sports. Is everybody comes with the second chances way too quickly. You know because of all the things we talked about before the sportsman's are the way that the conversation has always happened in the space. The conversations like move on from it stop on sports. Excuse me. I didn't bring it into sports person who did it and that it sports brought it into sports and so you're now just ignoring that it's here and rhyme saying let's make sure this person knows. They made a mistake so they don't continue to make that mistake over and over a second. But say you're sorry and mean it and i wish that teams or sports organizations. Whoever it is that feels they're going to benefit from this person's services hot would hold the people accountable. Because if you would do that you'd get a better athlete. You'd get because they always tell us. Sports is ninety percent mental and they really aren't backing that up by supporting the mental health or any sort. You know what i mean. They don't support that development of an athlete. The better you know yourself the better. Your mental health can be the.

"Was just i was just like side some sometimes but i'm nineteen in your various theory So i was doing on that stomach. And i was getting ready to graduate and i literally drew a line across a map and i said i'm applying for jobs under me this line because i have been in chicago for four years and i would show i love northwestern i love the school i love. Chicago is a city. I could not handle it. I'm not tough enough. I'm sorry. I just it's not the cold it's dark. Katie it is lived in the mid west. And now i have not. I've only lived in boston. New york new jersey very east coast in its with predominant a lot of the time in the winter it gets dark at four o'clock nuts. Well okay this time zones. I times rain going. I think you know this one but try to figure it out. I don't know so chicago if you look at a map. Not everybody realizes this. So i'm happy to educate list of you asked me to put it on a map. I wouldn't i would try my best. I would try my best under very dumbest geography. And i'm not if i'm not hiding it anymore. I don't know where things are. we'll let me let me educate so chicago If you look at a map they kind of make a turn around the time zone to kind of scoop chicago in do it. That's how that should work. Because it was the farmers market and the meat market and all the murata ex and produce and things coming from farms coming up the railroad lines to chicago where they had this giant meat market. They wanted chicago on the same time zone as the crops in suppliers in farmers who were bringing them their products so everybody lodging again make sense except chicago should probably be in the eastern time zone. So it's getting dark for when it should actually be five and then even during the winter when it's before four o'clock on it can be just great with no sunlight for ten twelve days in a row. Maybe fourteen days maybe a month. So i just again i. There were people who are tough enough to handle it. I'm not one of those people. And i literally went and got a job in florida. The office because i was like there has to be ablaze where i'm not cold dark all the time air like florida mine hates it so i i made so many mistakes in one of them was i was like. I'm going to be dark and exotic now. Because i got a tan and i was like i'm dying. My hair black not totally did. It was not good. It wasn't nothing about it was good. It wasn't good. I look. I did it in college. But it's not as far of a leap for me because my hair is just a boring brown anyway. Dude i look. I thought i would look like cool and mysterious and instead i looked like i dunno like sabrina. The teenage witch tried out off definitely lake it with five the internet again. I'm old so back then. There was not a lot of. There's no there's no jake. I've made i know so. So yeah no but i did. I did love living there. I learned about like florida man and like all of that culture. Because it's all true. And i think i'm going to get the details wrong so please don't rabi on the internet. The mayor of miami either was in jail while he misses the mayor Or like was just taken away from being the mayor to go to jail. I'm getting details but it was like right. All of that stuff was happening to. Yeah and yeah it was. It was a lot at first. And then i got to go to the washington. Post is my dream. Come true a dream come true and then it turns out like newspapers completely collapsed as an industry. And why did you leave and go to espn. But i go. Yeah and new now. Obviously the great newspapers have figured out the internet but at that point they hadn't And it just felt like. Hey if i want to keep going in my career this was something and again i also had like until me a bunch of people. Espn we're going to a much people. Watch them pose for gordon. Espn so that will say about pd. Ido so my little cubicle at the washington post which is what i had was literally right between where mike wilpon kornheiser's nice. This is where my goodness would come to yell at each other. Well no they do not even bother to do that. Cautious i was gonna say you've met both. Yeah you're right that makes no. That's not true wallet and they call each other well no through the door at the was. The offices had like a glass. You know the whole third. Fourth wall is grass rate. You and men the door would be open so they would. The doors were opened and they could hear each other from their desk and you can kind of see them because they were glass and and they would just start yelling at each other and arguing about something and i would literally have to leave the office to get work. Done be like i need to rate. It's hard to write a story when people are like arguing next to you in your ear. And so when they finally did the pilot for pti. I was so thrilled. Because i was a great goal. Bear wrote to the studio. Because i need to a washington capitals story. Which is what. I was doing so then you went to. Espn obviously and then you went to cnn for a little and then you came back espn. I don't want to gloss over that because some of your favorite stuff of yours was when you're at cnn like you re with cnn for the goodell thing I mean that moment was so if there's ever a story written about this time of our lives at that moment goes in it. I know tons of women who stood up and felt proud of themselves. When you push back on goodell in that press conference and.

"Is again. I've got a friend. Nama mother's day gift. No idea do okay. I'm the It's may and he has to use an inhaler before every game because he was just having so much trouble. Getting guy were career. We're seeing take off. He's clearly got this. He's transit points the third night like it's not like when people and then i heard you know it's funny jason. Tatum is held up. Held up as someone who has had long term problems code because he has he and then you see people on the internet who are sort of those deniers be like well just scored sixty the other night. I guess he's fine and yeah. He did and incredible but he had to use an inhaler inhaler. Yeah he never had that he ever had before and his teammate. On the celtics. Now evan h. Which by the way. If i can leave you with one thing last time we did this. It was no a complete sentence. Your time it's do not ever bruegel evan for news last name ever. I just trust me. Just friendship and do it. You know her wrench it. Just no have. I ever given you bad advice. Never genuinely no so there you go. I'm just telling all your listeners out. There don't ever google heaven for knee. As last name the player you will probably end up with his stats. That's fine but just a don't do it. You don't wanna do it and you certainly don't want google image search. I'm just saying anyway. What i will tell you. Though is that he's traded to the celtics Nor landau not a team that has had great postseason. Success hosted the celtics team that has been in the eastern conference finals. Three the last four years. He's like oh my god. This is the break i've been waiting for. He gets corona virus and he said that even though he has been quote recovered now testing negative in his allowed to rejoin the team. He said he feels like he has a concussion. All the time while and he's twenty eight years old and a professional athlete in very good shape so again it. Everybody is different to your point. You recovered great wonderful. But i'm again Science and. I'm glad that less people have to deal with that now with vaccinations. I am curious to see the relationship between vaccines and players. 'cause i don't know if this comes up some of the other sports that you talked about on this lovely pod and other things but definitely not on this but maybe the things i So we're about to go into the playoffs in the nba. And for example. Dennis schroder in the lakers here in los angeles where i live Just was sidelined for cove protocols and they said he'll be out for ten to fourteen days now is private matter. We don't know for sure if he has covid. But here's the difference in the nba. Sidelining contact tracing. You're out seven days whereas if it is a positive. Kobe test out ten to fourteen. So we can all do math and understand what happened require. We try mum given the ten to fourteen days. That is typically what they say. Someone actually has corona virus and the lakers are in trouble right. Lebron james isn't the next couple nights idiots still getting himself back and dennis schroder their starting point guard and they're trying to stay out of the play in tournament.

This dumb t shirt including something has happened to it to screw it up. That i'm like oh if i had gotten a dry cleaner that wouldn't have happened like the seams on the side become front seems and they're all twisted and you're like what is this logs. That could be look. I also don't own ironing board. Who i do own weirdly. An ir and don't apps now that seems. Yeah question that yup. I i i kind of made it puts you into together the other day i was like I owned this iron. But i know earning board and then my third thing is that i don't buy anything from occasion. That can't go in the dishwasher. And again i'm sure i own pots or something or nine hundred or something. That aren't supposed to but again. I just my time. I feel is more valuable and it will go in the dishwasher and if i have to replace it in three years i will go buying at target which is where i buy my thoughts. So oh god we're so wait now let me ask. Where do you buy makeup. Also while target. If i can. If i'm lucky enough but they're gonna targets near me during a big drugstore makeup person an mooch from the people who are certified and five shinola up as soon as someone put nice makeup on me and said go. You don't have to search for it just by this this and you're like okay act color yes yes thank that there you go so i've missed those people but so you've been back you're now in our back in the studio studio or Again that's sweet a period of Live from home. Which is they called it. But we didn't. I'm really angry and our producer. Danny corrales was really angry that we could never come up with a clever name. Race so What was highly questionable from highly entirely quarantined and p. t. I was hurt in the something Oh yeah what was it. Also super clever and smart. Apparently eric reid home is brought. Well kinda like we didn't know right. Homeless comes good. Tv by the way in case we didn't know for the eight thousand time. Eric reid home is brilliant and can think about the stuff and we have the the jump. It's short it doesn't fit. It doesn't go. There's no way you can call the stay put. It doesn't doesn't have the same ranks we get that for a while. That was in the bubble for the nba bubble for what felt like eight years. I don't know how long did the bubble go three months. Whatever it was allocate you. I think eight years was right three months off and then we were in the stormy. It started to be back in the studio right before that. And then in the studio and then there was just this weird fluctuation as case rates went up and down of people can be in the studio with you. Oh wait no never mind. No one can ever be in the studio with you. Well someone can be there if they're fifteen feet from you so we've gone through all those integrations but it's funny you know i am. This is gonna shock you katie. I don't wanna tell us nor my personal beliefs here. I believe in science. I know what it's crazy. So this part of little bit insane so obviously if you believe in science and doctors and people who have all kinds of trading as opposed to checking facebook for all of this time we have all been very careful ask everywhere. I do all the stuff i carry. Hand sanitizer with me to the point where it is the only thing i smell like now which is sexy. I think it's totally fine and a musk. An interesting message. That a little bit of light flavor. It's not good. Might children are not happy about that anyway. But now. I am fortunate enough that i was able to get vaccinated. I think most people have been eligible to get vaccinated in this country. That meant open. Dutchman opened in every state since april fifteen and i'm also psyched i believe in science now and feel much more comfortable when i'm in the studio or we don't have masks on when we're doing tv. And even afterward if i'm sitting in talking to someone who's vaccinated guess what scientists exciting and has allowed us in the face of this like crazy miserable pandemic to actually like return to our normal lives. So i've been trying to return to my normal life like two weeks them fully. Maximum feel like. This is cool. This this felt like. Hey this was the crazy thing. The world has not seen what one hundred years since the spanish flu and we have some pretty amazing smart people in this country who were able to get a handle on it in a way that. I think we're all going to be deeply grateful for for a long time. That's always been the thing for me to like a comfort being comfortable being close to people again and not having to worry about. It was always my i understand. There were people that everyone's got different levels of comfort. I hope thing was like. I can't do my job if everyone around me isn't comfortable. It's huge important. Part of the world functioning and i don't mean totally comfortable and coddled but like it is uncomfortable to be flying in the face of science. And hoping you don't get it and i'll tell you when i got it. I was worried. I was talking to somebody about this other day. The hardest part of finding out you have covert. Is those first few days like when you're like how battles is going to get gonna go. Is this league getting sick. And that's frustrating or is this me about to die and earn if you never going to be the same again exactly. But i will always have this. I read a bunch of articles that would always say like people's experiences. Were like yeah. I would feel fine during the day awful at night or every time. I felt like i turned a corner. It got were didn't rate. I was like oh. So every time i felt like i turned a corner i was like. Do not get your hopes up the site. Come right back once you and face which you did a couple of times but luckily it wasn't that bad but it just felt like a lotta people's responses to this were so like i'm fine. So why does everybody else care because not everybody else's fine and that's that's it. I think it should just be like you believe in what you believe but stop. Don't put other people in danger. It's been look we can. We can say hey. The districts are katie is sounds like you feel totally normal now right and you are so young and healthy in. I feel depressed. Hell racial flying on found think that has anything. i don't think that's related chemicals. There plenty people who are young and healthy and not and i cover the nba and right now on the boston.

This global pandemic was happening with super scary and weird and you know everything that went along with that first month for all of us but also felt like okay but there's a lot still happening in the nba even though it's shutdown and we all wanted to kind of find a way to continue our show and was just nobody at that point. You just didn't know right was going to be shut down for a year. Two years like what i remember. We joked that it was going to be a year. Thinking like ablett's imagine if we got a whole year year rate. Wait no and you know. There's a bunch of stuff moving around break they They had announced that high noon was leaving but then it was like within two weeks. Everything left you're sort of like shifting to that rate because i can't even imagine pablo who haven't been who like. He went to the hospital in the morning. Wasn't it that day that the his daughter was born that they announced the office. I was at the office. It must have been right like maybe a week or two before. Okay i'll i know remembers. It was all concur yet. Yeah and then within a week also the world shutdown and i was like oh my god pablo had a baby and like outside of his apartment will never be the same so i remember thinking that and just thinking for us. Hey week we would still like to have basketball show so we were trying to figure out ways to do it even though we could not go into our studio and eventually they figured out sort of new quote from home live technology. And we did that for a while which was integrating mike. Six people from twelve places. That's gotta be frustrate hang. Well here's the thing we were talking about this right before you started recording. There's a whole lot of things. I'm not good at and it turns out that some of those are what's involved being like a crazy one man band of television show list some of the things i'm not good at. I am not good at being a camera person. Not great at it. Don't handling rate artistic vision on exactly where to set the camera angles and depth perception. And by the way rachel. The frame rate isn't working. So can you fix that no i. I don't know what that means so there was that i'm not good at being a sound or audio person. Half the time. I sounded like i was coming from a welsh. I don't know what we do still kind of do giant microphone. That's what you need wired headphones which you and i are proud.

Recertifying doing makeup in our boss was like no neither was. I is a mistake. You're i don't know how to do at a professional level. So that was an adventure spent learning how to do. Makeup is spent learning how to do this job. Like the rhythm sitting here. Because i have no idea to put makeup on my face. I was very singularly focused on becoming good at doing whatever this is. Yes yes and it's so funny when you talk about that stuff. There is no one. I've had people at work over time or sort of like. Oh well it doesn't really matter. What the lighting is. Kinda does doesn't matter. Whatever it is. And i say to them. I am not the one who thinks how i look is important. Writer is nobody more than me. Who would be thrilled. If i could just be the same as my male colleagues and be a woman in my forties and not have everybody constantly analyzing how i look having met be something viewers talking about having that be something.

Thank you for saying that normalized making up at noon when you stay up.

I wouldn't be able to function. I have to have red sox prior to that and then i can talk about sort of anything overnight. That happened in the excuse me in the nba. And like i gotta tell you. I am not a morning person every single morning. We've been doing the show from five years every single morning. I'm unhappy when my alarm goes off like every time i'm not used to it. I'm not happy about it. It's a problem is not good. I might ask dolly pattern is. Yes you have summed up as the child of a bartender who was a bartender herself. You have summed up exactly why i think. I've aimed my trajectory towards a late night. tv show. Because i'm like i can't do the morning. Prep i need them. The earliest prep to be around noon. Ish otherwise i'm gonna be useless. It's not going to be good. i'm not. I can't if i had to be on. Tv at seven thirty in the morning. No no i never i.

I'm not doing that. And i had an agent who has just like well. Yeah but they want you. You want to go in and talk to them maybe leverage for not I'm never going to work for a morning show. It's never gonna happen. I can never do that. So there's really no point wasting time that makes me feel so comforted because there have been times. I think what i've heard from my agents in this short career. I've had that feels thirty years long at the point is that they're like you say no a lot and i'm like do i i. I thought that. I say no. Because i'm like i not because i don't think it's a great show because either i don't think i'm good enough for it or because unlike i just know that you won't get good what i'm good for if you have me working a seven. Am show it won't. i'm. I'm sorry. But i have to say no for out of respect for you so to hear you say that you've also drawn lines of just like it just won't work.

Well, I think of Aziz introduced the topic of remarked on on them.

Finding Connection, Self-Love, And Thriving With Chronic Illness Ft. Nitika Chopra

"Hi everyone. this is tiffany. And you are listening to this. Episode of tiffany and the podcast. When if you are new to the podcast tiffany and you is a podcast chatting with friends. Who are using their voices and platforms to cultivate compassion. Change and creativity. Today i have with me. Nigga chopra who is founder of chronic kahn which is incredible community for the one hundred thirty plus million people who live with chronic illness in the us. High nigga. I tiffany thanks for having me. We ended up getting introduced through nate. Nichols he's a big fan of yours. And by the time you were thinking about launching your online community chronic khan and then we emerged on clubhouse and we've become much better friends since then. I always like starting with origin stories. What led you point of really thinking that cronica needed to be in the world. Well i just have to say. I'm so glad that clubhouse brought us closer together. Because i do feel like it was nice that there were all of these touch point in then being with you and clubhouse has been so special and the way i would start by origin story is that it started when i was probably ten years old and i was diagnosed with my first chronic illness. And so there's so many things. I could say about that journey and i know you and so many of your listeners have been on their own journeys but their bodies but that has definitely been my greatest teacher in my life and so when i got diagnosed with psoriasis at the age of ten i just saw my whole life through that lens. I had it in a very debilitating way. Sometimes people get psoriasis. It's maybe a small patch or in their scalp which is frustrating. For sure but for me i ended up having it covering ninety eight percent of my body and i couldn't really move without severe pain so it was everything. It was the way that i saw everything. It was the way people saw me. And then when i was nineteen i was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. Which just really impacted me in a whole new set of ways. It made it really hard for me to walk without severe pain because my joints were painful before it was my skin was painful and now my joints added to it. So as i'm sure you and so many of your listeners can relate. That was the lens that i saw everything through. I try to be positive. I have a really strong spiritual center and that really helped me through a lot of those challenges but it also shaped me to want to help people. Because i felt like there were not enough resources almost no resources when i was going through all of that that were there to really support be especially emotionally so i'm not a doctor. I'm not a practitioner. I'm a patient so pretend to try to heal people but just that emotional support of like yeah. You know. i've got somebody. That knows exactly what i'm feeling. I don't have to explain to this person. Why i can't walk the five blocks or i need to take a cab or i actually can't help with moving this box or whatever. I don't have to talk about it. It's just like no. I'm not going to do that. And you just move on. there's no heaviness there. So i never really had that growing up so i think that just has a lot to do with the story. Weiss started doing the work that i do thanks for sharing there's a term that was coined by someone in in the disability justice. Face a manguson cheeses the term access intimacy and. It's this idea that when you show up in a place you don't have to ask for permission. People just get it and it sounds like the community that you've created or what you were seeking was some level of that access intimacy was the turning point of really moving more toward advocacy and really wanting to create that community. There was definitely a turning point for me i. I started my career about eleven years ago. And you know at that point. No one was talking about chronic illness or disability or health. Really in the truest sense of the word. There was this health and wellness industry. That i sort of found myself being a part of but truthfully it never was very helpful or felt very supportive. It was just my only option at the time. And so i gravitated towards that i started an online magazine talked a lot about self love. I talked a lot about beauty as it relates to self love. I did that. Threw a lot of media opportunities that i had which was really great but there was a turning point and i would say after the twenty sixteen election. There was just a reckoning that was happening for so many people and myself included and it felt like i thought i was using my voice before i thought i was standing up for people that i wanted to stand up for and for what was right but there was something after that election that made me realize there was so much more that i could be saying and sharing and really it was a refinement process for so many people. If this is going to be this dark where are we going to find the truth.

Merrick Garland Confirmation Hearing For AG

"But today is all about Merrick Garland. He'll appear before the Senate to take questions from lawmakers for the position of attorney general. Most people know Merrick Garland's name because of something that didn't happen. Garland never got a hearing after President Obama nominated him to serve on the Supreme Court five years ago. Here's NPR justice correspondent Carrie Johnson. Merrick Garland has devoted nearly 45 years to the law. But he didn't start out that way is, he told Professor Martha Minnow at Harvard Law School in 2016. Why don't you go to law school in the first place? Chemistry, well chemistry and math. Garland had planned to become a doctor. He wanted to help people one on one, but his collision with the hard sciences spun him toward the law, where he's looked for that sort of direct connection ever since. In the mid 19 eighties. At his law firm in Washington, Garland became a rising star. He made time for a young college graduate who worked in the copy center to Randy Thompson says Garland reviewed one of his papers, photocopied it and rearrange the paragraphs. That was the beginning of In essence and becoming a riding coach. For me, it was just extraordinary experience and became my coach. Eventually, my mentor and 30 something years later, a friend. Eventually Garland Road, MMA reference for law school and has kept in touch ever since, Thompson says garlands Still a little old school still humble, still looking to help. The only thing that really has changed about him, And I guess me as well is the color of hair. I don't know, well respected judge as attorney general. Help get the department under the quagmire of partisan politics that many people think it devolved to under President Trump and Attorney General Bar That's Georgetown law professor Paul Butler. He says the DOJ has been reeling from political scandals and racing to confront the threat from homegrown extremists. Merrick Garland has faced both before. After clerking on the Supreme Court. Garland took a job as an advisor in President Jimmy Carter's Justice Department. In those years after Watergate, DOJ struggled to separate partisan influence from law enforcement and establish new boundaries for the FBI. Garland also played a bit part in some of the biggest investigations of that era from political corruption to national security that Garland says later turned into hit movies. American Hustle about the Abscam case. Argo about the ex filtration of hostages in Iran and the most important the miracle on ice. Which was about the Lake Placid Olympics, where I did work on the security for the Olympics By the 19 nineties, Garland was prosecuting a violent gang that terrorized people in a public housing project. And helping build a case against DC's mayor Marion Barry. On drug charges Back inside Justice Department headquarters, Garland became the man to see for the hardest problems. The car bomb exploded outside of a large federal building in downtown Oklahoma City, Garland would soon travel to the site of the most deadly domestic terror plot in American history. 168 people died in that bombing in Oklahoma. Former deputy Attorney General Jamie Go Relic remembers watching that day with Garland by her side, he basically said while watching Children being pulled out of the wreckage. That he had to go. He really wanted to go. We both had young Children at the time and What we saw on those screens was so affecting. Garland oversaw the search warrants protected the chain of evidence and insisted that reporters have access to court proceedings. We wanted somebody Who could make sure that the investigation was done by the book. And that any indictment was bulletproof. Prosecutors later convicted Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols for their role in that bombing. Former prosecutor Beth Wilkinson says Garland played an important role in other confrontations with extremists in those years, including a standoff with the heavily armed Montana free Men. One of the examples I can think of is sometimes and there were these stand downs where there would be, you know, arrest warrants for someone, or there would be some kind of controversy between people who were challenging the federal government. America's first instinct wasn't to go in and arrest everyone. It was to try and along with the FBI to see if there's a dispute could be resolved. Wilkinson says. The FBI went on to arrest those men later. She credited garlands, quick thinking and cool head that may have prevented a tragic outcome. Just about the only criticism Garland's nomination has drawn is in the area of civil rights. Garland is a moderate, so I don't see him as the bold and visionary leader or racial justice that some people were hoping for again. Georgetown law professor Paul Butler that he's not an ideologue is both discerning for people who want an attorney general. To meet this moment of national reckoning inspired by the movement for Black lives and the killing of George Floyd Butler says he thinks girls just from the White House long time civil rights advocate Wade Henderson says Garland is up to the task. But Henderson says it's a big one. The next attorney general, for example, has to do everything In his or her power to fight for voting rights. Police reform Criminal justice reform and LGBT Q equality. For the past 23 years, Garland has been a federal appeals court judge in that role, he doesn't have much of a chance to share his personal views. Carolyn Lerner, the chief mediator at the courthouse, says Garland took an early, an important lead to update policies that protect workers from sexual harassment and other misconduct. I think it's very clear that Judge Garland cares a lot about these issues, and he really wants employees to be happy and comfortable in the workplace, and when he was chief judge, he took his responsibility. To these employees very seriously, she says. Garland wants to continue another of his projects at the Justice Department tutoring sessions with a young public school student. This year. The judge is working with an 11 year old boy and his twin sister. Your mom is Andrea Tucker. He makes this so interactive for them and so much fun and they can't get enough of it. It's the kind of public service that Garland has always wanted to

Tapping Psychedelics for their Anti-Inflammatory Powers

"Joining us daniel pleasure. We're going to talk about the therapeutic. Potential of psychedelics loose and it's pipelines experimental therapies that extend well beyond mental health indications. There's a growing interest in psychedelics. as medicines what's led to the transformation of this area from one of illicit substances to wonder drugs. Well i think that science has led the way And really it's been clinical research conducted at the top universities around the world Principally johns hopkins to start and now all over imperial college yale university new york university etc Very much led by the science. I i think that When you the question of wonder drugs though is interesting because i think that Silla sabin like ketamine are drugs that have a tremendous amount of promise for the treatment of depression within psychiatry and these drugs have therapeutic potential and other drugs beyond psychiatry but The classification wonder always brings the kind of and probably justifiable skepticism of Is the hype real. And what's really kind of the fundamental Potential and also what are the stumbling blocks for these therapies. And so all of those things are really the focus of the company in in in looking to develop These therapies both within and beyond psychiatry. How restrictive an area is this to work in today. And historically how hampered his research been it has never been more easy to do research in this area You know over the last forty fifty years. Things have dramatically changed. I think that What's what's really notable is the amount of knowledge that the regulators have in this space. The fda ema are very well informed about both the therapeutic potential of these drugs as well as the the risks associated with their development and use. And so i think you have a very informed regulatory audience and you also have increasingly Investors and other sources of capital that are willing to explore and develop these therapies. So i don't see really the limitation being that of a regulatory or legal wine and it's much more about The you know the the aspects of clinical development and really how do you take something with potential and translate that into a solution to address. Unmet needs there's long been interest in the potential of these substances to treat depression and addiction. But you're looking at a broader range of diseases. Among other things you're looking at these substances potential anti inflammatories. What's understood about the potential use of these drugs as anti inflammatories. I think that you know. Our company is is really notable for the fact that we have the the world's leading scientists and clinical developers focused on the full range of potential. Both within and beyond psychiatry. Interestingly when people think about serotonin they think about it in the context of depression they think about it in the context of psychiatry but actually serotonin is a modulator of basic function throughout the body And in fact there's more serotonin in our in our gut than in our brain and in particular the primary target of psychedelics. The new the The primary receptor which mediates the psychedelic effects of serotonin. Two a receptor is ubiquitously expressed throughout the body. It's on all immune cells. It's on all major organ systems and so fundamentally We have been away dazzled and and a bit distracted by the profound psychiatric potential of these drugs and certainly their perceptual effects. But in reality there is a much broader potential because these appear to modulate Stress response in a variety of ways. You know you if you think of it in the context of psychiatry than depression or anxiety or substance abuse are all in a way related to the kind of inappropriate or maladaptive response to stress in the rest of the body. You know whether it's Due to aging whether it's due to an inappropriate immune response we see. Similar type of modulating where the serotonin receptor seems to be implicated in a variety of chronic. Inflammatory diseases the initial discovery of the potent anti inflammatory effects of some psychedelic. Compounds was was. I made by our scientific founder. Professor charles nichols at lsu. The that research That kind of kicked off a long Research campaign in the development of anti of the anti inflammatory potential psychedelics has less through A number of very interesting discovery specifically that some psychedelics are potently anti inflammatory in models of allergic asthma in cardiovascular disease and in a variety of different models of of inflammatory disease associated with ophthalmology related to diabetic. Retinopathy macular degeneration in addition to which there is potential in neuro degeneration and a variety of other conditions and so fundamentally the potential is massive and the key. Question is and really. I think we've addressed this and we're we're very excited to kind of take the next is. How do you bias the psychedelic from its perceptual effects. And make it purely a anti-inflammatory or immunomodulators medicine and that's something that we are

Optimizing Your Time and Business Strategy with Rocket Station

"I am beyond excited for the second time to welcome back. Mr robert nichols a ceo and founder of rocket station. They are an incredible company. And i'm excited to talk about some of the different ways that you can implement In a service like rocket station using virtual assistance in those extra savings. In your business to help you grow helping create labyrinth. Help you kinda take things to the next level. So robert man. Thanks for jet on the podcast. Read so excited to be back up. haven't me. I don't know if i consider myself a marketing genius. But i'd love your podcast. I love the show. And i learned so much from listening to you in doing to be a part of your organization. So thank you for letting us be on the show today and let me be here. I really appreciate your time and excited to be here. I really appreciate it. I think that You don't necessarily have to be a marketing genius to help. People look like marketing. Genius isn't as one of my favorite things about your company because we've been talking for months especially if you've been listening if you've been following me for any amount of time. The last six to eight months. We've been beating marketing content creation. Those things over the head because we think that it is so important for agents team leaders broker owners types things to go out there and build a brandon and create leverage. I think that's something that the top producers in every market seemed to understand that maybe the people that are chasing top producers. Don't and it's one of the things. I love about your company. Let's dive into it so when we're talking about creating content and doing those types things a lot of agents think lights just can't do all the stuff in typically true like you can't you got to negotiate deals you gotta read contracts yet you all these things. How am i supposed to create the type of leverage so that i can put out content consistently. How am i supposed to post on social all the time. How am i supposed to create the pictures graphics in the videos. How do we do all those things. So i wanna ask you like. What is the kind of rocket station process if you will for helping agents only create content but create multiple pieces of content in industry. That so that they can build their brand agents are are are busy and they've got a lot to do in there there certain tasks that are in the day that a lot more important than others right like going on a listing appointment or showing a buyer a home for them to move into is most agents third their highest and best use of time. And that that's where they make all their money so to slow down and and create more content or try to put more effort into generating where business on the front end seems sometimes like an overwhelming thing. So usually people come to us with the with a couple frustrations. It's either they don't have enough time to create the content that they need or they started creating content and putting it out and now they're getting results from their marketing. People are calling in the back in. They're getting overwhelmed with trying to fulfil what they're creating so we are fortunate to get to work with some of the best agents in the country that everybody's heard of the top agents in the entire country. I personally get to learn from those people as low. And then it's awesome to see some of the smaller agents implement the same strategies techniques that that work so for us. We we really see that agents that really focus on creating the content right may name you. As long as there's a camera filming. You don't have to edit you. don't you. don't have to reproduce you. Don't have to repurpose right. So we really liked to pay the overwhelming piece of that content creation. First off your play so most of our clients most agents we work with. They're not afraid to them. Quick videos they're not afraid to rights and stuff out there willing and able to do that but we're most people fall down is the implementation. How do we chop up this interview by team will chop up and this will be a whole bunch of peace of every time you make a great quote on here we will cut it out. It'll be a name right. And if i happen to say anything of any value hopefully there's eighteen years we will cut that up and it will be maine's in gifts in there will be hunting creative plus we will go twenty thirty minutes here so this will be three four five video segments for us to be able to use so for me personally. I'm ice shelf. I spent thirty minutes talking to you. Grant team will then go splice this content into a ton of different pieces and it's the same thing with their agents whether their meetings whether they're doing marketing falls whether they're doing straight up marketing videos like you teach in the formula that you give people if people create just the baseline on and we can really help you re purpose data and create a whole library of content from one interview in the example. I gave last time. We talked on the facebook live. Is we had a client in one interview. They got turned into thirty seven pieces upon dan thirty seven. He's from once. Why because the agent was focused and locked in just doing her job and we were able to separate that out in all the content out so it's the momentum behind them the leverage really doesn't have to be all of your personal. I'm it just said you can help. Create some of the court context than teams. Like ours can help you get it out. There get posted a shot down the all the all the editing all the things that happen to make it all pretty look professional. It's very easy to get someone like us to do that. So i think agents get overwhelmed when you hear this message up and you've got to create content and do all the words to get it out and then have it consists. That's too far. Teams like can actually come in. There's still all of that

Rachel Nichols On NBAs Return To Action Outside The Bubble

"We've been getting clarity about what this season is actually going to look like so it scheduled to start december. Twenty second and the finals are expected to end sometime in july. But i wanna talk to you about everything may or may not happen. I guess between those two dates because this is not going to be a bubble situation. Now what are the broad strokes of what the league is planning for this season. I think one of the most interesting things that's going to happen to the nba. Is that the situation in the country. Should hopefully all fingers crossed significantly change. Through the course of the season rachel nichols is the host of espn's nba show the jump. She's been reporting on the nba for nearly two decades. It could be. Maybe i'm being optimistic that there's enough people in this country vaccinated that the numbers of of infection or lower in deaths are low and that we have a full city to city. Travel fans in the stands. Nba finals when right now a majority i think of nba teams or at least a big chunk of them can't even have a single fan in the building. And i think that the nba is smart and taking sort of month by month approach. They're not even planning to release the full season schedule at the beginning of the season. Has it ever happened before. I don't think so in any sport like it's it's it's all a little bit up as they go along because that would imply that they didn't know what they were doing. And i think the nba has shown they really do know what they're doing as much as anyone can right now but we don't know so much about what's going to happen in this country that i they can look at the first chunk and just say okay. Here's what we're gonna do at the beginning and we'll see after that give you the basics. Though in terms of how many games we're playing year where they're going to happen. What are the fundamentals of what the first half of this. Season's gonna look like right. Well they're trying for seventy two games in quote home markets in home arenas. They've talked about trying to do the puzzle pieces of the schedule in a way. Where teams if they're you know a lotta times. Nba teams love to tell you how bad the league offices screw them on their travels. Because you know if you're portland and all of a sudden you're going to miami and then you're going to utah and then you're going to new york and then you're going to denver and then you're going back to brooklyn you're like i was just in new york. They're going to try to not have that happen. The thing that they have on their side this time is that there's really not concerts at arenas to schedule around the ideas that if you travel to a certain region of the country baseball style you can maybe play all the teams all of which is great and they've told teams when you do travel. Obviously they take their own plane they will get to a hotel but a hotel with other people in it so they've given them rules and there is this you know. Nearly one hundred fifty page rulebook. They dumped on the teams and thanksgiving weekend and one of them was. Hey when you're at the t. motel. Your guys can't use the gym and the only way they can use the gym if the hotel agrees to clear every other hotel guests out of the gym keep it closed for the entire duration of the stay. Have it cleaned between each player when they use the hotel gym. I mean there's just that's the level of Of sort of detail. They've gone into which is great but the bottom line is you're playing a sport on like football. Unlike baseball that has played indoors. Where the guys are breathing and sweating wreck on each other with no helmets or equipment in between so the league. That didn't have any player. Positive cova tests through this whole last. Six months of on-court play is going to have them this season pretty much guaranteed. So you're in the bubble.

Serbia, Montenegro expel each other's ambassadors

Serbia, Montenegro expel each other's ambassadors

"Neighboring countries expelling each other's ambassadors is not normally the prelude to anything good so montenegro. Booting out serbia's ambassador. On saturday with belgrade responding in kind raised alarm bells in the balkans which is the way of alarm bells in the balkans raised alarm bells elsewhere but serbia has now decided against declaring montenegro ambassador persona non grata amid much talk of goodwill between neighbors. So what is behind this spat and is serbia's man in pod. Grits still packing his bags. Well let's get the latest from our man in the balkans delaunay guy. Montenegro kicked this off by throwing out. Serbia's ambassador so let's start there. What had serbia's ambassador done to upset them. He said what they thought the provocative things about the notion of the montenigrin state. And he's like saying they sort of things and he said them once too often it would seem his most recent touch rent so this is a guy called vladimir bolshevik. Choose serbia's man. In montenegro he described this is the raw the flowery way that they not oppressive poverty. That the decision by montenegro authorities in one thousand nine hundred thousand nine to unify with serbia was a liberation and a free expression of people's will to unite with fraternal serbia Now the one thousand nine hundred union of montenegro with the what was then the kingdom of serbs croats and slovenes clue. There's no space for montenegro. In the name of that particular state Has not ever gone down. Well in history with a certain section of people montenegro Least of all those who say that we are an independent state became independent and twenty six and are larger neighbours. Should stop meddling in our as i mean. This is not terrifically. Diplomatic behavior from an ambassador. Was he going anywhere with this. Or was this the consequence of having perhaps over enjoyed one or two receptions. I couldn't possibly say on this. There's a lot of very undiplomatic behavior in this neighborhood. The those one diplomat in in he used to boast about spearheading a digital diplomacy initiative and this digital diplomacy initiative seem to entirely consist of insulting serbia on twitter. So that's that's the level of things. Here and keen. Listeners may have noted that in the past year relations between serbia and montenegro have been a little bit more tense than the normal in large part because of the montenegrin presidents decision to to launch an attack on the serbian orthodox church montenegro. He lived to regret this decision when his party. Then lost the parliamentary election in august. But this this rows being going on all year and the being little pokes and nichols and needles Going backwards and forwards between the two sides. Serbia as i read it has now currently given the montenigrin representative in belgrade. A reprieve at which point. I think we do need to give it up for the montenegrin ambassadors name. How can you refuse. A man called tarzan milosevic willing to in any religion be wrong. Any relation to any relation to either taza and milosevic is what i'm asking. I didn't think so. And this is not unusual. Balkan name by the way so. He's got very unusual parents. All these parents who thought that their son would go on to do unusual things which in some ways he has. I mean serving is montenegro. Ambassador to belgrade is something that wouldn't have been on their minds. Perhaps when taunton was A came into the world as some sixty years ago say but anyway He's got his reprieve. It would seem launch because of serbia's president alexandrovich There was a press conference in belgrade on sunday evening. At which prime minister. John boehner delivered. The word from the president's office said he decided the some things are more important than diplomatic protocol and he would extend the hand of fraternal friendship To montenegro which bearing on everything that's gone before was a little bit ironic. So is this actually going anywhere. This wanna are poised for a new era of rancor between serbia and montenegro or is this more one of your teacup the storms. There's actually something going on behind the scenes. Which is we're bound to have. A new government installed in montenegro. So i mentioned the election in august. We the government hasn't been installed yet. It's due to be installed tomorrow and this new government is fairly serbia friendly. It's it's a funny old coalition. The largest party of which is very friendly towards serbia and russia and they've accused the outgoing administration which is dominated by miller djukanovic. Even though he's the president and not the prime minister of stirring the pump basically they're saying the trying to increase divisions within montenegro society between ethnic serbs and montenegrins and with neighboring serbia before they got booted out of government formerly Tomorrow and i think that's quite a reasonable analysis. Delaunay thanks as always joining us. That was monaco's balkans correspondent god alone

UNTO THE SECOND GENERATION

"A young veteran tells how few rupp experiences pushed him into a and how he was therefore spared years of suffering. My eyes opened onto a hazy world. Two fuzzy came into focus slowly. I realized i was in bed. And that the objects were my feet in case in a harness affair. I blinked slowly as i shifted my gaze to my arms. They also were held in some sort of strap or to gradually consciousness. Returned enough to let me know. I was in a hospital looked about the room. At one end of the bed near the foot was a printed card and beneath that was a chartered graph. I couldn't focus enough to make out the chart. But the card contained two words acute alcoholism. Then it came to me. I was in a hospital. The place hawaii the year. Nineteen forty eight. I closed my eyes and tried to think. I remembered having had a little drink of whiskey with a can of warm beer as a chaser. Then something happened. What was it. i couldn't recall. I opened my eyes again and a shadow fell across the bed. Standing there was a gray haired man tall trim and in uniform. There were gold bars on his shoulders. I'm in the us navy. This must be the doctor. He asked how i felt. I didn't reply. A cormon stood beside him. The doctor motion to the corman to undo my straightjacket and leg restraints. I moved about a little. The doctor sat down beside the bed and asked me how i felt. Do you know why you're in here. He queried. I could tell him a lot of reasons why i am here in elke ward at the age of twenty. I don't know how. I got here this trip but it doesn't matter very much i'm an alcoholic. Don't mince words. i'm a rummy. I can't control my drinking anymore. It controls me. I remember back in high school. When i was fifteen we all had lockers. The other pupils kept books pencils paper gym equipment and such stuff in their lockers. I did too. I also kept beer at fifteen. Was strictly a beer drinker. I didn't graduate to the hard stuff until i was sixteen. The other kids would light out for the hamburger hud's or the ice cream parlors. The pizza joins or bowling alleys after football games and dances. I didn't. I went to saloons where i could get drinks. I didn't give a whoop about anything. Scholastic i got a job after school pumping gas and worked until ten or eleven. At night i was the kid of the crew. I tried to mimic the talk ideas moods and even the drinking of the older man. It hurt to be considered a kid. I talked out of the side of my mouth as they did. I smoke this much. Tried to drink as much and do everything they did. Only more so. I found i could boost my income by selling gas. Coupons rationing was in effect. Then that i'd taken in earlier from other customers by filching nichols from the coke machine by short sticking customers on oil and by selling oil. I drained out of other cars. School was getting to be one big bore. I was skipping classes about two days a week and doing no book work whatever. I was failing in everything. The principal had no alternative but to expel me. I beat him to it. I quit when i was just past sixteen. I had a drinking problem on my hands even at that time. So did my parents. They both drank like fish. They had been drinking for many years. And we're getting progressively worse. Homelife didn't mean much to me. They were kind when they thought about it. But that wasn't often i wanted love and affection but i didn't get it. I did as i pleased most of the time. I wasn't burdened with parental guidance. And i didn't want any. I ran away for the second time with another lad. We got to omaha for my home in chicago. We headed out of town walking. No money cold and hungry. It was late at night. We spotted a church in a small town. We broke open a window and got inside. We started to light some matches to see but the draft blew them out so we rolled old newspapers together and made torches to find a good soft pugh and get some sleep. My torch blazed madly in the pew caught fire. We heard some yells outside. A busload of basketball players had been passing and saw the flames. They summoned the fire department. And the sheriff. I spent the next three days in a sell. My dad who was a newspaper man and had some connections. Had meantime put a stop on me. And i guess that report went all over the country. We were identified. And i was put on a train for chicago. The sheriff bad as goodbye very happily. I think dad paid him something to let me go

"So as the team's number of teams here, contract the teams that are in some of the quote outer hotels are going to come in to this main hotel, the tier. And that's GonNa be a whole thing because you're going to have the eight teams remaining by the time you get to the second round all stay in the same place in the same as and all of that stuff. I. Do think once when you say, Oh, teams are gonNA see other team's leaving I think the whole look we had one two three Cancun when people weren't trapped in a place outside of their families and friends I think if the team gets down in a playoff series and it doesn't look surmountable that pep talk from the coach about, Hey, we're gonNA come back is going to be a lot harder, right? Yeah and that's where I think all along down here the teams who came here. With purpose, who said, we have a real purpose here. and. We have leadership. Because there's some teams who have purpose who I'm not sure have great leadership and vice versa. But if you have both to give a better chance of of Pushing through look at the blazers, right. That is a team where Damian Lillard said throughout the shutdown and he caught a little flat for at one point but he meant what he said and he was right he's like. I don't want to go down there if we don't even have a to win if we're just window-dressing if I don't have a path to the playoffs if I don't have something to play for, why am I going down there right and eventually they came to this decision about the playing games and it's never going to be fair to everyone. But at least this was the most fair to the most people and they felt going in fun. All right. You're giving us a lane at least have a path to get there. The leadership on that team is strong the purpose strong and they by the way think we pull first round playoff upset even though it might be an eight no one. Because you've got veterans that's not a normal eighth seed with rain and. What, that team if Trevor Reza had been hearing in another wing player. They'd be even more. I, mean right now they're going to be dangerous Gary Trent Juniors Bender kind of revelation here, and and now we get into this last week of the seating games rage and you saw it yesterday and I wrote about this today, some of the teams were competing for the to get in the playoffs. They weren't thrilled to see the jazz set everybody in a game against what would have been really an eminently winnable game against the Spurs Spurs are in that group. And the jazz at everybody, and then they play the Spurs again, the last game X. Thursday. In the seating game and you wonder at that point if a team like the jazz who solidified sure how many there guys are going to play then the rest or the end that kind of thing. Yeah. Yeah. But especially against. When you've got all these teams, who said we're GONNA come down or told we're getting a fair chance to to compete to get in the playoffs and then a team competing with just gets a Freebie that you're gonNa to you're to see more guys sitting this week. Now the blazers benefit today because he doesn't play right there's but but that part of it is You're going to hear more talk about that this week. Yeah. But my answer to that is, yeah what's new rate playoff races every year come down to a couple of games land for couple either seating guys getting into the playoffs and there's always teams the benefit from twitter the end of the season, the teams that are safely in often rest there guys arrested people and even in a completely normal regular season, you have teams who are competing for the same playoff spot where one team excel and they're playing the team resting there guys I think the argument, the counter to that is was supposed to be different. and. This was a different scenario like we all accept that we finish out our seasons. We didn't. We weren't finishing our seasons. We all came down. We thought we had you know Kinda this. Plainfield and so I think there's more sensitivity to it because. What you had to go through to back and play, and so again, it is this your it's exactly how this goes down the stretch of any season and by the way if it's Milwaukee or the clippers, I would look at any of those teams or the jazz in this case who were saying Oh this isn't fair. Why aren't you fully participating and saying I'm not wrecking my team for your benefit right? I think my guy needs to rest going in the playoffs. So yes, I'm all for the sense of fairness and Everyone giving it a shot. But when I feel like it actually starts to damage my teams playoff chances. I'm not going to do that and I don't blame them right if they feel I'm again I'm pulling this out of the air but if they feel after rescue on us for the final game of the regular season or whatever, they're not going to not do it because San Antonio needs to feel like they had a fair shot against whoever I mean the they wanna be short for the playoffs and it could be anyone. There's going to be. I think the Camaraderie of Hey, we're all in this together. It's important for the League. We've got to think about something bigger than ourselves. We gotta get down there. WE'VE GOT A. Like our league depends on this I think that's going to get chipped away out here and self interest starts to drive starts to drive it absolutely as as expected and by the way fans complain about players being to collegial now, right Back in the nineties whatever well. You know they're only collegial up to a point. Though is going to be fun. We're we're listening we're. Almost. To the playoffs. You know week. Loose track dates. Let's. Say. About. We've got about a week, Thursday Friday the end of the seating games and then. into the playoffs some this was fun rich. Thanks for jumping in. You've got another. Week or so here, and then refuel at home and then come back. Out Yeah absolutely. But it's it's fascinating and I will say as the last thing being here you have a great awareness of just how complicated this was to pull off that every decision but gets ten more decisions. Okay. We're GONNA them food. Well, how are we bringing in food who's bringing the food who's cooking the food or are they doing it in the quote safe zone and a separate zone or they bring it? In I did a piece on the mail room here, which like it's a mailroom right it shouldn't be that complicated. It's really complicated how packages and everything or getting in here. So the scope of what the NBA has pulled off here even as we start to worry about next season, it is worth noting that when you were inside the bubble, it is tremendous. It is so impressive and it says something about the League. Absolutely rich. Thanks. We'll we'll. See Round here soon absolutely..

"Back into this bubble Rachel, think prior to when this was being laid out to the players in the teams and what everyone's concerns were about. How everyone would handle this? What's been your sense around players? About think there was some fear of guys. We're going to be climbing the walls in here that people were going to be so frayed by the how contained it was. Now, we haven't been in. There's a long way to go in here. What did you guys in terms of? How they're handling. The limitations of being in a bubble in. The environment around this place it's kind of interesting right I mean everybody out there can make the same designations within their friends circle. Especially, in the first few months where of the pandemic where everybody was really in their homes, there's a huge split between your friends who had kids and your friends who didn't rate my friends who have kids were constantly like God I'm trying to teach eighth grade math to my own child while also working while also doing this and I can't go outside my friends with little kids We're we're climbing walls because the. Kids were contained in a space and they can't go to the playground anymore anything my friends who didn't have children were like, oh. What did you binge this week? What? What did you do? Whatever you know that sort of thing so I think you're seeing the same thing in the bubble where you have players who are in their early twenty s who live an apartment anyway who basically even when they're back in their. Home Market live in the apartment, hang out with some other guys on the team and maybe some other random friends and who they've met in that market or whatever, and sit around and play video games. We'll the bubbles better for them. This is actually better. They don't have to worry about getting themselves. From ADP, NBA players lives are already pretty catered. Now, they're completely catered like literally from the moment they wake up to. The moment they go to bed someone's planned and thought of everything for them. They get to hang out with a bunch of their friends, not just on their teams but other teams to now they can go anywhere. They want to other hotels in whatever the Lakers have this madden football tournament going on where each guy put in a few hundred bucks and they picked a team to be for the whole season they have. Complex they. By weeks. They have a whole schedule. I believe they're in week seven quote unquote of their tournament You know. So for some of those younger guys I think. Quite except for some of the very specific G, they can't be around. Women or the public in the same way. But I think for a lot of those guys, it's actually for the eighty percent of their lives is a great set for them for the older guys with families. It is very impactful enters hard and I was talking to I. Think it was Kyle Korver about you know I've said to him Oh you know that's a team Milwaukee that's a team that intends to be here for a while and. You know are are you gonNA. Bring Your family brain and he said, you know I don't know he's like the policy for families is that you've got to come into the state. You've got a quarantine in Florida in a strange place that you don't know not at home, and then you have to come in here and quarantine in a single hotel room for I think four days he's like my wife with young kids and and she's a single hotel room with the children and they can't go anywhere and they can't go out and do anything. The process to bring families into the bubble is so stringent. I understand why? But I've heard players say I don't know if I'm GONNA bring my family in and then that's a very different situation for them and I think it's very hard to those guys I think are feeling the impact of the bubble in different way. was talking to a GM about this the other day, and he thinks that once team start to be eliminated and they see guys leaving. that. It'll be interesting to see the impact on the guys who are staying and I think it's going to get I think it's already there was a Toronto. Boston game the other day. That was it was chippy and it was a physical game. It was a it was. What you're going to see is we get in the playoffs and There's a lot of curiosity about I. think so far it's been pretty collegial in the. Rival like their rival teams in the same hotel down the same elevators they're coming through. It's going to be different when you're in a seven game series with somebody and something happens because something's going to happen. and. Now you're going back to the hotel now. The Environment And oh by the way, the referees are all living among you. Yes and the referees are here and All the are going on like these speed walks around the campus or coaches get out is a staff just to get out of their head and referees or there and. It's going to be a different environment I think as we get through his is the first. Group A, teams, leave, and then we get into the post season I. think the feel around this place is is going to dramatically change i. feel it in some spots already was it kyle lowry who shouted out his remember to someone the other day on the court and said, you can catch me here you're that interested in it. And also all the are going to be moving into the same hotel. So as they advance now we're spread around three Disney properties and that was part of the arrangement with Disney. The Disney would close those properties to the public, but obviously just needs not making the money from the public on those properties..

"People who sit courtside and pay the most money the people in the sweets because in the end it's going to be you're gonNA try to raise as much money as you can off of however many seats people you can get in you're GonNa, make this exclusive experience. There's really no other way to do it if you're just trying to pin so many markets, it's not up to the NBA is not going to be there are some governors there's. So many governors who have already said we are not allowing mass gatherings at sporting events and I think even two thousand people qualifies as mass gathering to them in the northeast. All of those governors have been very strict about what they've done, and by the way it's worked the coronavirus numbers are lower there than anywhere else I live in California where several NBA teams are the governor of California back in April said no more fans at sporting events for the entire calendar year. and. Then the one other idea that I think is I think lowest on the Well. There's a lot of them are neutral sites. What if? Let's say you're in L. A. Washington new. York. You cannot have people in arena and there's more cities than three. But there's a city where you could. It may not be an NBA city, but it may be a metropolitan enough location that says, no, no, we could. We could accommodate fans maybe it's Vegas maybe it's Nevada maybe it's now again to think that that there will be places in this country that can put thousands of thousands of people in an arena within next year Harder. Budget. But that's again one of the they're trying to roll through every possibility. That's another one of them. But what's the demand then to rate if you're only one neutral site? People. You and you even if there is a way to put fans even if you've got gotta state to let you do it for the first week maybe you'd have enough people who are in that state wanting to come to games. But at some point, you're not really gonNA have fans travelling in for those games in the same way because there's so many travel restrictions in places and a lot of people are like on like getting on an airplane right now or that kind of thing if you want to have an eighty two game season with thirty teams in one site. Because you can have fans in their what the fan demand going to be. Once you get to game forty two. And I think teams. Now you talked to them and they're really struggling with the idea of you keep telling people no fans in arenas. No because it's reality. No fans no fans. It's not a great most places. You are really trying to market organization to sell tickets, sell outs or not automatic. Anywhere but a few places. and. You have an audience that you're chipping away at here, and that's why the teams who aren't playing. Now the Atlanta's in Cleveland's and Minnesota's and Detroit's who need to be in the news they need to be have a presence in their market. If they're all rebuilding teams. Some have more to sell than others to their fan base the idea for them, not just that they can't get their team together and they see the wizards and sons with younger rosters here getting training camp and Games and like what advantage this is. But in. Chicago's who aren't in this. Like not just that you can't get your players. Organized in the gym, you further distance from your fans hang customers who? Stuck in assume they're all gonna come back in the. For the following season. It's a lot of trouble for the league. That's why I am concerned about this idea of let's push it off. Let's push off because I think what we've learned in this country this year with this virus is the end is not as insight as we might thought, it was at the beginning I think that when we were all sitting in our houses at the end of March, the assumption was well I mean certainly by the fall we'll have football back football sitting there being like Oh yeah the NBA and Major League Baseball figure this out but it'll be fine by the fall and of course, that's not the case so i. Love reading every story about a promising vaccine literally, the best news in my day when one of those pops into my timeline but we also being told by medical experts that even once a vaccine comes out the first crack at a vaccine is not usually the best one and the distribution for vaccines taken entire calendar year if not more to sort of cycle through country. So when I hear the Oh, what the League wants to start December first but maybe they pushed back to February again in your story today about the idea of Martin Luther King Day at the end of January or February around the all star typical break or something. I think banking on the fact that it's going to be better by January or February does not seem to be in line with the news. I'm following right now and so I do worry to your point about presence of mind not just for those markets for the twenty nine markets in thirty teams is if you just kind of keep endlessly pushing back until quote we can have fans you go year without basketball and I think that would be so detrimental to the league's a whole teams i. mean you know the financials better than me like I don't know how teams could survive that you're going to see tremendous. Lay Offs. There's been some I. Think you'd see mass layoffs and organizations. They go a year without fans and without that revenue for most. You'll see dramatic cuts which the average fan may or may not care about but the financial impact on organizations will be. Dramatic and how they operate and You know back to the vaccine I know the League has told teams. If there is a vaccine sometime. And of two, thousand, twenty year beginning two, thousand, twenty. One of something is you know expect a year for the distribution like you said in so that doesn't just mean magically we're gonNA. So. Those are all. Factors and then the Olympics and how the Olympics plays into in Tokyo and July. Part of the thought of starting December one was got the season over in time for players to go play in the Olympics one other idea they have brought up in his on the..

Quiet empty studio we'll part of that is because they used the scrimmages to experiment with what was in the gym versus what was on TV and at the start in the scrimmages, it really was a lot quieter in the arena. You could hear the squeak of every sneaker they weren't piping in the crowd noise they were piping and music, but not crowd noise for the first couple of scrimmages. It was silent at the free throw line to the point of Jj Rettig told me he hasn't shot free throws without noise. He's not even duke he said a Duke. You'd have the student student section hushing each other, but there was always some guy from Maryland yelling. At me the other way and here for the first week or so of games, they cut the music out for three free throws and he said he was so unnerved at absolute silence when he was trying shooter the he looked over Jamal Crawford on the bench at one point said, can you start heckling me or something like come on and that I think enough players said it's weird when it's completely silent. So they did start piping in some crowd noise and things like that and it's late I don't think it's heavy as it is on TV but there is no point in the building now where it's complete silence and it was for the first couple scrimmages. I've told people it feels like you're on a spaceship. Watching like holograms like you have to you sitting there. And you've got the virtual fans in the background and then the benches and then nothing else around it and you're going well. James Harden, right? That's definitely honest. That's Libron. But it doesn't seem like it should be them but it is. For the first few games when you're at because we are at almost floor level or floor level depending on the arena but we're basically right there on the same level as the players and for the first few games to me it felt like we were actually inside a video game video game graphics are so good right now that it really felt like with the video board surrounding us it felt like I'm like, Oh, I'm in trouble now like this is what's happening. But I think it's remarkable and I'm wondering if it's the same for people watching on TV how quickly it feels normal and maybe that's an analogy for all kinds of things in our country that had been normalized but it goes pretty quick. I'm watching the Games now and I'm not thinking, Oh, I'm not seeing so and so in the Super Fan in the stands or any of that, do you feel like when you're watching to get lost in the game being normal now? Does, you get used to it and I've watched I'm obviously watching games in the arena, but I'm also watching games back. You're not there all the time and and so. It does I. Guess it's like anything else. It's funny when we first talked about Orlando and playing here in the division I had I've seen games in. What's called used to be called? The Milk House I guess they call the fieldhouse. Now I've Seen College Games and there I remember being here. I. Guess It was a Thanksgiving Tournament and I stayed a couple days. Later I remember it come down with my family and I knew there are a bunch of NBA scouts GM's at one of the college thing. So I stayed a couple extra days. And so I remember watching like a Rhode Island. Whoever they were playing a game and it was empty and it was like. And the seats were largely empty and you're going so I'm picturing. Are. An NBA game with all these empty seats in the background. not this the very beginning before you realized. How they were going to frame the court and they weren't going to see any of that and it is from what I I imagined because of my experience having been there to what it's become, it is pretty remarkable. I think it's brilliant I really do I mean given the limitations of what you can and can't do. I. Think it's pretty incredible with the sidelines they've created for fans to be able to see and the virtual fan thing is so funny you and I talked a few months ago. The last part I did with you about what were they going to right and what Korean baseball had done, and now what we see American baseball is doing with the cardboard cutouts in some cases and whatever..

"With every single veterans misery. Every single veterans success story in. It's fucking veteran. Yes Yeah Dot Com. That's it yes. Insult me. Same thing with my with my drug addiction my infidelity. Incidentally he might the divorce all that stuff. It was my fault yet. Not Today's fall not to seal teams fall not my parents fault now my friends fault not my environments. Yeah I'm a big existential philosophical wise so I'm that's kind of quote me as a core. I try not to try not to blame other people. I it comes out but I don't think people take enough accountability and credibility for their own actions. And it's much much easier life to say Well the reason why was this or the re instead of being like well another reason why I'm probably a little fucked up. I think the the idea again. Just you know cultivating that internal locus that you know you are the person that's responsible for you whether that's your successes. Your failures and I've really benefited did personally we We have a Vietnam veteran. Lives just south of here Then you know he's been a really positive influence on me because you know that guy I is just such interest rates were got spit on glittering. He is so positive and he's just like I think just watching. John has helped me be a better person. You know but he likes it he just he puts that out there and I think that's one the big lessons I've really learned from him. Is is a man you know you you. You're the one that's responsible for your own attitude and you're the one the slop over your own outcomes and yet yeah Jeff. I don't know if you've seen the have you seen the Vietnam Kim Burns documentary now that I've seen baseball civil war. I'm not saying that it's amazing. It will it. It is the guy we're talking about John. Lewis Graham was a A Marine who got shot three times Vietnam and he was he was like basically basically the the spotlight in the Ken Burns Documentary and then we cut. Yeah and then come to find out. He lives twenty miles south of I mean he's just he's a fantastically interesting man. I mean he came back in a really involved in the antiwar movement here Kansas rant and like I said and just his perspective on on life and especially considering everything he's been through it just it's absolutely phenomenal and he's just like I said he's a He's one of those people. I think everybody can can learn something from it. I I know he's taught me a lot. Yeah we we've asked the point for us as Veterans Ri- light. It's the process even the process of learning. It doesn't end like we're talking about. Hey Craig training programs great process a compliment process of selection judge. When you get out now what are we have we got either? You'RE GONNA complain or you have a process that enriches yours and other people's lives. Ask The vast I AH I. I'm trying to catch that freshman class because yes I'm talking training. I'm talking personal responsibility. That ability that demand in the team's and then the extension is family. Life right creates a much bigger picture than training but again my my pedestal might opet is away well and if you can get that down though you know what I'm saying if you can lock down your physical fitness you can lock down these programs and one completing your programs are not easy man. I mean they're not they're not. They're not they're not easy programs. They're fucking hard. Yeah of course there. Yeah and the ESA es La Bud vase like Jesus Christ. Yeah they're hard programs man and one. I don't what you you gotta be honest with yourself on your programs to this. Real Accountability needs to to get the best outcome. Yeah you have to be honest with yourself but to if if you crush one of your programs man and you can head into like when I tell people the goal for any type of selection process is when you get off that plane or when you get off that a bus or you get out of that car whatever if you get out of that and you say man all my bills are paid. I'm physically fit. I'm mentally doing okay. I got a book with me to read in my spare time. I'm good to go you can if you can get off. Whatever you're doing with just having a regular other day you're usually going to be set up for success and I think that's why you're programs are so important because it's just like I said I? It's it's really cool. One one the obviously the programs are built the way they are but to You're one of the few people I know who live feeds and actually I was so impressed with you. You would like get up and actually like doc show different like actually showed differ. Move One where you're talking about grip yours ripping out here griffin here griffin here in actual bio mechanics of it and I was like man that that forty five seconds speech right. There was a ninety minute lecture somewhere along the way and people don't they don't grasp that. Yeah and that's why I think that's I think that's that's what's happening right now is that there's parts that statement Einstein said that if you can't take your complex subject explain it in a short time right and and then there's much more to that right lanes it's just not that simple but the point is is that with a real understanding something like 'cause people asking a cow. Hey how can I audit audits. Someone's knowledge or the key of e an athletic trainer strength and it's there's nothing I can really say because basically interrogation arrogation point yet. I don't mean that may be asked to validate someone's knowledge base and I think that's what my goal is. My primary goal is to not oversimplify but put in a context. That people can actually learn in Nashville. I say like instagram whatever. It is as far as I'm concerned. That's a cost among people to approach it that way like I'm not a person -ality certain lot not people do emulate not my intention when I do I appreciate. It's very flattering number. One but the best thing I can offer this world is knowledge college in its sinologist and gives me by people who really cared for me cared about me unchain enough about me to give me to help me to share with we are at the end of the day whether we're parents or teachers like we're teaching our kids we're teaching our friends Example on and that's the thing is no one's asking anyone being angel right. Metaphorically guess is that Dan Might WanNa we're world. We.

I just it's been so long that we were just saying beforehand like it's you've lived a whole Jimmy Butler, experience and bang. Speaking spoken to you four we jump into that real quick. I wanna get I wanna get an update. The last time we talked to you was back in the spring. When Bill Walton stolen of your pictures off your wall has he returned that. Not. And because he is irreplaceable. The photo is replaceable or our show has no budget. I can't decide which it is nothing has been put on the wall. I did make him. I tell you sign the wall where he was like, we gotta leave something there. And that has just been there. I will say we were able to get a couple of those like potted point setters for the set is it point setup Setia. I want people listening to know it's Christmas. Because apparently, that's how every television show tells you it's Christmas. Dammit, we have points that a no photo back in the spot the Bill at the photo. But we have said so clearly work it put a frame around. But yeah, let the cast about Jimmy Butler because we talked about it a lot when it happened, but we didn't have young. And the biggest question is. I mean, obviously, it all it was all kind of a whirlwind. And you went interviewed him in Minnesota. And before you interviewed him he did his on the alpha. You guys need me to win practice. Did you did you feel at any point? Like he was using your ESPN to like get his weird message out there. It was just such a weird story. Here's their whole canal. Gee, what happens? So we I'm Jimmy since his rookie year. We talk a lot. We had talked through the summer. And of course, the story leaks out that he wants to trade and the first thing. I do because I'm the big J journalist check with him. Hey, Jimmy, come on. Joe talk about this. Not yet not yet. And we talk a few more time sort of through the following week. Jimmy wanna come out and publicly talk about this not yet not yet. So the week before all that happened. He was actually in Los Angeles. And we had talked about him coming to the set the jump and actually coming on the show on Thursday. We had started to have that set up. And then as that was the night before his agent kind of win that they were talking about trade to Miami. Right. And if you look back like that's where that whole talk heated up that he was gonna get traded to Miami. And they're like we don't want to come on the set if the trait happens, and we don't want to do anything to ruin it. And it got to the point where over the weekend of that that weekend. There was it was so hot and heavy. It was kind of big before like, oh, all they're doing their necks changing medicals deals almost done and then the deal falls apart rate. So by Sunday morning deal falling apart and Jimmy goes bras back in Minnesota and Monday. Hey, I guess he needs with kids in Minnesota. And that they feel like I'm not trading. You you're gonna have to come back to practice. We're gonna stop calling this like what do they call it? The first couple of weeks his training camp like hand injury or something recovering. Right. So basically by Monday afternoon or evening, you know, this whole process, right? I have been checking in with me. Like, hey, are we gonna come down and interview and Miami like what are what are we going to do this because he hasn't spoken publicly at all since the spring since the wolves have been eliminated from the playoffs..

"So even say last year when people were in calves they're going to be in the finals again. Yes. The warriors and Cavs were in the final again, but how both of those teams got there. We've completely unexpected on so many counts, and all of the things that have been in the middle of that season to a bunch of different teams, whether it was little when I'm with the rockets or when on with anybody who's hose me, they could have predicted that tunnel gate scandal between kissing clippers right in the secret tunnel and all of that fun sort of blown out of proportion stuff or the the more serious. But equally weird, Twitter controversy with Brian collage wellness, any sisters or all the different things in the NBA that I mean, there's just so much craziness and so many stories this ten and still have ten, ten more leftover. People would be like, how could you not say those were the ten craziest stories and the NBA. And I think that that's what's so fun about the league right now is there's so much stuff. We're no one's going to know what happens on the court and off the court and the Lakers both on the court and off the court are gonna fall into that this year. We have no idea what this team is going to be how well it's going to work is on courts that's going to work is LeBron going to be as patient as he says that he wants to be right now is Lance which lends Stevenson we getting, you know, sort of how the west shakeout and who makes the play offs. I mean, what happens? Jimmy Butler in Minnesota is a little bit of a butterfly fact to a lot of the teams that are in that second, you know four through eight, four through ten spot in the west of who makes the play offs and who. Doesn't. I'm excited because you know anytime someone like LeBron makes a big move like this is just creates more variables. I think variables part of what sells the NBA ritual Nichols is the host of ESPN 's the jump. As she mentioned on this podcast, she is a big part of NBA countdown. We don't want any strife here. It's everybody's in love. We're. I work with. Do you like the people you work with love the people at the athletes and at sports, five ninety? Fantastic people. Is that sake and for the twelve people from those organizations that I'll listen to this, I want to give out to, you know, I know. Is that or real? No, it's real in all in all seriousness and no bullshit aside. The athletic has been incredible in terms of giving me and I'm sure every other person who works there, creative freedom, and Rachel, you've been to Toronto enough to know how great the people are appear. Rogers Roeder's could not have been better from. I mean, they've literally helped me move to a new country, so no matter how this how this adventure ends. I can never honestly repay them. They've been incredible. And that really more speaks to just the people in the city than anything else you've been around many times. You're very familiar with former NHL beat writer, washing capital beat writer at the Washington Post for three years. I spent much time in candidates around on the big fan and I was just say, yeah, I believe you when you say you like to run away, believe you when you say like the epic, it doesn't all have to be like fake for the media, right? Like like, sometimes you dig the people in the situation. You're in genuinely, dig it here. We're having fun. It's true. I mean, there's enough people. I really. Hate in the media, but no, the people I work with our interest don't happen. All right, Rachel. Listen, thank you for giving us a lot of time.
