Called burning the light by this committee named same talent that just chronicles this old road. But then i had been working on the road so much. Like i'm just going to put this down for a little bit and then i read comic books. I've been reading comic book since i was a kid. But it's just like an escape for me. And i mean comic books. You are not even nerd anymore. It's mainstream goal. You might say like it is just so funny like everyone's like easy showing cheating like grew up reading these things like what i mean. You had to be deep into comic books salah guardians of the galaxy and showing all. This is like. It's so funny because you already know about him like forever a guy you know. I grew up on comic books. And you knew he was a character right. I mean you were like yeah. He worked at a comic bookstore. If you chunky so it was you know pretty deep into have you seen the movie. Yeah yeah. my son came home last night and said it's one of the marchetti says how and you made a comment earlier about thor snapping. His fingers fan of santos like that correct not door. But now what i was about to say is very relevant. I was gonna say. I knew what you're talking about. Because this year i've been watching all with my kids started during the pandemic. Yeah and so.

And i told my wife i go. That's the most unbelievable part of this movie. This movie about a guy that can be a giant or a little ant and communicate with the most unbelievable part of movie. Is that dynamic right there. That has a child who is divorced. I'm going to tell you it's not like that. You would rather believe that he actually became an aunt. Yeah way more believable to me than this. Like friendly dynamic where the ex husband like Hugs the guy who's with his ex wife. Now there's no version of that whatsoever as like. that's a stretch even for marvel. That's and then we're watching. Ted laso amounts great. The marvel would is fun to watch the family to marvell.

"I mean i don't think it's important for you. Know christians are age for things to be packaged. The way they were. And so. I don't necessarily always feel a pressure to give that to my kids. I think they just want that authenticity genuineness and kids can see that man. The kids have a good radar in those kids e. q. grows faster than their ike. You really have a sense of what's going on in their household and when their parents are just like broadcasting or just giving them like okay. Here's your answers to all your questions you know like well. I don't know that that helps them. Right yeah i think about that too. Sometimes we said like how our kids are gonna. I think they're also going to hear more. I'm sorry from our generation not even my parents but like my grandparents. I can't imagine my grandparents ever looking at my parents and saying i'm sorry i don't know my grandparents ever thought they made a mistake especially in parenting. Like this is how it is what we do. Yeah you're getting diagnosed with adhd Said you also Are diagnosed with that. What is that been like for you. parenting her. I don't want you to talk about her business new baby. you know. that's another thing that i think is changed. Is you just go. This is okay and teachers are better at it. teachers understand. Hey the more. The brain is complex. And the more we have this like what is it like this computer tim. Hawkins had that line like you have a computer made of meat in your brain and it's not gonna be the same for everybody in the way that they're going to learn like i think that it was when she had it was a bit of a relief because we go like she is a lot like me and that you know she's passionate about it she thrives and if there's no interest people don't realize that when you have a hd it's not. They don't understand the mental blocks than we have of. It's not as complicated. You just go to have just like just go. Get your work done. You don't realize your body and brain are working against you. It's very physically hard for you to do the tat it feels like there's obstacles inventing new from doing it and schools very hard for kids like that in addition to just all the other everything else in life right now actually middle school middle school is like we all decided like. Just go be weird together. Just it's tough years and then and all that so. I got her eighth grade. Yeah and i asked her yesterday. Like how's it going. We've been like a month. Five weeks. Like i hate eighth grade. I'm like really. I said i did to actually treat you. She said six. It was hard because we were new. I love seventh grade. Eighth grade sucked. She said. i can't wait until ninth grade. And i was like well. My you know so hard. Tough years. And i think especially for my wife melissa. I think it's a bit of a relief to go like okay. This helps us. This is now we kind of no help us get the right tools Helper succeed and like you. Adhd is really is a just about guiding us to the right thing because if they once they hit that like she this during the pandemic she got into canoeing not like competitive. Cannoli yeah and because it was one of the only sports that you could do because it was outside exactly and and like she just wasn't a part of her life at all two years ago and then two weeks ago she just was like medellin and nationals in oklahoma which is very funny that they left san diego canoe in oklahoma. Seems all the what the the big body of water is out here. We have so much of it everywhere. But that's the thing that she got passionate about it and then she started to accelerate. I didn't even know you could go to nationals and canoeing. yeah. I know not even not like rowing straight up canoeing. There's so many weird little subcultures because there's there's gold medalists like there was in the olympics and Who knew yeah. Well you released a comedy special in the middle of the pandemic. This filmed it. In september. twenty twenty we released in november twenty twenty. You know like a lot of people going in twenty twenty. I had some ambitions. And i had some goals and then the world ended still kickin. We've been running on e. For while i don't know the fumes gassing i think i can make it home. Yeah just kind of keeps going. It's just one big long fever dream wherein so anyone can watch it right now. It's it's been out. Since last year came out on amazon and a month ago we put it out for free on youtube so out there. Hey you got to give it to the people okay. What is it call them. How did they find sampled.

What about tick-tock on talk. I'm not are you love to talk you do. I have turned into this woman. That's like i don't know how to learn something new. Yeah i think is so funny. I was telling a friend last night. I said i talk was my last. New thing died after this. Yeah i said that. But i was kind of anti-tick talk at first too and then i got on. I was like oh. This is pretty great. Actually now when my friends send me funny videos. I love them. Yeah yeah it's also different as a public figure like oh jamie strain again on john then like my videos would be off on like. I don't know i'm doing you guys. You don't want to like publicly.

"Exactly right okay. We can have kids dad to three teenage son verse year of high school. Yeah what has been your coming into some fun years My oldest is seventeen. Yes i'm just a few steps above you. What is teenagers like at your house. I try not to talk about my kids too much either but you already told me talk about him in your show so roma kids all the time. Yeah you know the teenage boy. I feel like my kids have like to each kid. I feel like has like two emotions. And i'm just like i don't know which one i'm gonna get at any given time like my preteen. Which as you know with preteens their daughters their teens there. You know any teenage girls. The meanest person on the planet to each other to my wife and i are talking about the other day like remember before technology or i mean. Of course there's technology but like we still found a way to do the meanest things possible like when you would like you would do like the two way call somebody else on there and by so and so. I'm not a big fan. Oh it's just me and now it's everywhere with social media all things. So i feel for them but like my son you know he coming out of the pandemic where like. What are you going to be like because it didn't affect i'm sure it did. Your student affected them at all. He's wildly different ways but he's had like a nice smooth landing into high school which were very very grateful for it so funny though because you look at high school and you know he's ninety pounds. He's a small kid. He's on the football team ego. Which one is him some one. He's the smallest one out there. And and then you like look like an eighteen year old. You're like that can go to war craft shaving for years and appears with my son. So that's that we're very very grateful that he is like it's been a very that's one of the great things about football. Is he just like their practices star during the summer. I know your your kids play like they started. During the summers we'd like a landing place gothard just immediately new hats which is great but his modes are like like pretty chill friendly and just like lethargic like i just bring my blanket out and i sit on the couch all the time. That's all i get of him. And then my middle kid gloria. She has like chill and like silly like she's like she's like not like me and then rage that's only one or the other. So do you ever catch that. Like like she's talked to my wife. And i'm just. I'm like part of me as i've wanted to say those things. I can't weekly if you're in trouble but finish your thought. I know you're definitely in trouble. But i am glad moms hearing she needed. It's like a fantasy you like. Try to like telepathically. Give her notes. She likes and another thing dad. We don't snitch on me. Just got diagnosed with adhd which i have as well and it was so funny because they handed me like the thirty paid like they're like hey your kid has adhd. Here's how you help them and handed me like a thirty page pamphlet. You know. i'm not going to read. You know my whole setup. I barely made it through the appointment of you telling me that she had. Adhd my wife's going through there another way. Could you send me like a series of talks. A video game training pilots and then the seven year old seven-year-old. I would say i don't know if this has been the same for you. The younger the child the more dramatic the pandemic affecting them because they got very used to like my daughter seven so a good chunk of her life has been in the pm. She has done more zoom school in her life. Then in-person school so you know that reentry last spring and then this has been a challenge. Teacher pulled me aside one day. She goes hey shirley you know that your daughter spends like a lot of the afternoon crying. She cries a lot in the afternoon. And i call a whole k. and i go Me too. Yeah me too. This is hard right. Yeah well it's hard for all of us. It's hard for all of us. I think that's been like the thing. And i love like that. You're like everyone needs laughter. Laughter is just such an important thing for us because we keep going like. Oh we were in this like no. We're still in it. So i mean texas isn't the rest of the world had a pandemic this year. I don't know if texas got wind of that we did here. in austin. we took like memorial day. Twenty twenty off flat curve. Shot their guns at kobe. Let cova que get into pieces science. That's how that works. All i need is the scripture and essential oils. We laugh but that is like so many people. I should really be so scared but it has been like such a hard year. And i love the even set like when the teacher said that. You're like me too. Because i think our kids actually need to hear at the adults. Go you think this has been hard for you at school. This is really hard for me to and just to be like. Here's what's hard about my life as well and i know that our kids benefit from. Spn it real with them and talking about those things with them as well. Yeah yeah i agree. I think that to me that ties into faith stuff a lot to of just going like my main interest with my kids especially as they get older is giving to them. Whatever is. I'm authentically feeling in the moment. Not in like a raw inappropriate way or anything like that but not feeling knee. And i think that's going to be a difference that our generation does with parenting of more candid conversations more conversations with exceptions less black and white conversations. Because they see everything. And you know the it's not important..

"Know and so that feels so scary. And i always talk to people who they're like. I have this dream. i just don't know how to step out and do what that transition even look like free. I mean you made. It seem real simple. Like i did one thing and then next thing. I know i'm on the road. I have a feeling it wasn't that. Oh no no no. No i mean i did both stand up comedy and a day job which is my last job. I worked at a rec center and his membership manager like a pig. Ymca situation and i did both of those for five years and that was like it was scary. Well scary not the word that i would use. It was hard news very hard. It was scary on stage. That part was scary. I guess that's what it was people would be like. Oh that's really scary. That leap of faith. None of that was scary. Compared to just getting on the stage the stage is the scary part. It's still scary now. Sometimes you know there's definitely nerves sometimes like if you're following someone that's really funny like means old tanned. My buddies all think we did this. Co headlining tour here in texas. This last weekend it was like whoever's going second was kind of nervous and scared because the other person years watching them have a great set for forty minutes. And you're like. Oh now. I gotta go there. Also they're going to be disappointed in me natural state anyways that you're going to be disappointed in me but there's stuff like that but it's not scary. 'cause you've seen enough you know what i mean like you. Just there's no more sometimes it's more when it's like a bad crowd or like a hostile crowd or like you know there's hecklers and stuff. You're not scared more annoyed. You're like oh. I wanted it to be one of the good ones is like a child. That's misbehaving. I'm more angry at them. Yeah i am scared of so that grind was i was just that i mean it was my you know especially the last three years the job. My normal schedule was. I would work either. Like i usually work like sunday through thursday at the day job and a lot of nights i would do spots in town either in san diego and l. a. and then on thursday friday i would work the earliest shift like four. Am get off at noon. Go get on a plane. Go fly to wherever. I was going that weekend or drive if it was driving. Do the show's all weekend. Usually sunday night sleep in the airport. Get up monday. Go home shower. Go to work. That was for about three years. This sounds absolutely exhausted. Tired just hearing me too. And that's a young man's game like That's a young person. You can't and now a mike. I'll hit a four hour drive and i'm like oh i've gotten so soft. Yeah like man. I used to sleep on those airport floors. There's about thirty airports in this country. That i can tell you what gate to sleep at open later. Well in those early years. Just like every year penny-pinching so when i see people sleeping on the floors in the airports. I'm windsor special. Coming out saying five years fingers crossed and they're going to self produce it right so those are the but could have gone a hotel. Yeah probably it wasn't worth it financially. Go when those early years in comedy you're going out. You can pay seventy five dollars a show you're trying to break. Even you know you go into the city. That weekend. And i would go. I would buy a thing of oatmeal and blueberries and those would be my breakfast. And i will get to subway foot long sandwiches and then ease the club. And then i got an all my food for fifteen dollars like you really have to penny pinch so you come home. Because i didn't want to. I knew like there is an advantage of starting later in a career. Because you figure out it's not a hobby you get very strategic and that's what it was for me. It's like i have to figure out how to get good at this and make money this. If i want to do this fulltime you know. I think a lot of younger people can look at someone like you can be like. I'm just going to do this. This looks amazing. And then what you told me for the last ten minutes. I don't know if i want you know what i mean. Like in all reality like takes a lot of work when shows up at their highlight of their career without having a ton of work and that can be misleading for some people who think i'm going to show up right and headline tour. Yeah in you know and you're reminding us that's not how it goes some people can't. I'm not talented enough to not at work. Everybody some people just got the talent some people they still have to put do. But what i mean by that is that was always it for me as i would look at people i would go. I mean this is what kobe to say. Kobe right practice for two hours and then he would go practiced by himself and he goes. I just got twice amount of the work that you guys just got in. And that's what anything is is you go like i'm just gonna put more than no one's gonna work me exactly. Yeah yeah yeah. Yeah and you can it not that. You're trying in comedy. You're not trying to pass people necessarily but there are people who you go. You have a natural inkling for this. You've got an it factor you you know you were just naturally better at it right away. But i'm gonna work you you know and that'll be kind of how i find my way in this business you know we've had another comedian on the show. It just hit me. Jennifer full wiler. Oh yeah yeah. You know her january each other. Yeah okay. there's not very many of us in austin and she's been on the show maybe twice. Yeah very funny. She's very funny. And i went on her show a lot she used to do so i look at her and i'm like you show everyday life show four hours. I'm serious and she had like eighty five kids that she home schools and then she's doing these comedy tours. I learned like. I don't even know what your does it to get away from the kid i guess on the road that actually the problem is she brings her kids with her but her kids are out there selling tickets and setting up the stage and stuff so she's actually getting free work out of it or even better put him on staff and they're right off exactly right okay. We can have kids dad to three teenage son verse year of high school..

I drove here in my little chevy spark because that was the only rental car available right now and i had to turn in here because it's a very busy road and i had to sit in the middle lane. Is that scary as in the smallest car in the history of cars. I look like the roller skate of bigger car and just shook i was shaking but the whole car shook. I think at one point like as to silverados drove by. I think my car actually did lift off the ground. Felt like i was in the breeze. And then so i'm just relieved to be. I was relieved in happy to be here as soon as i got on the parking lot. You got highway. You've just sit there for very long very big car. But i don't know. I know texas.

And tim dillon. These are pretty established comics. And then they now there's like this boom but it's also not all good comedians. It's also like the joke is like every open mic in. The country moved to maybe like. Oh they can get on his radar. You know this is but a lot of that was just an exodus from l. a. You know because along with everyone else thriving never been better californians left. I love it so much. We're real grateful their hair. I'm joking california. We love you.

"I think about that. I just get excited and not just a group of people. Waiting was one of the bigger waiting rooms in her to knows. People got some million about walking about circled off power in circles right not enroll circles the grandkids and we started praying. We started praying. It was amazing. Started praying started. Worshiping cry laughing. Doing i mean i don't what what are you laugh in. Is like of all preying. On his deathbed going on man still alive today. Free agent in doing his thing. The funny thing was to the funny thing about that thing was that you know after the testimony you know the doctors and the nurses they come about because he was like he literally a miracle walking around today right now. They don't know what was going on day but it felt like the the hospital was shaking. That's their words. Not my word. That's what they said. It was like that time when it was it was really close for him. It was like the earth was shaking. I was like what. I need to start praying like that more often. Maybe some things that in my life that i could. I know i need miracles. I'm praying right now. I pray at the earth shake that my mother will be healed. But let me tell you this though. Even she's not my faith will not way. We're gonna keep my family. And i we're going to keep pressing four and we're going to honor god with everything we do. So we need some unity. We need to learn how to pray. 'cause there's power imprinted last thing that i'll say the third thing that will help us and this is not the only thing but these are the three things that are found in this in this right here saying so. They were saying him. I don't understand how you sing. Hymns sing songs with open wounds strep shackles. Also do that but it said they were saying of nfl like the last time we were in person. I was talking about sing a new song and song thirteen. I was talking about seeing a new. I'm not gonna saying today. You got wonderful worship leaders to sing for you. I want you to go home and have a wonderful image of me right not not necessarily of me but you understand what i'm saying right like i don't want you to be like he was. He was preaching any starts singing. And then that's when. I lost him like that. What they're for you guys. I want you guys to to remember the words that i'm saying and not the song that i'm seeing you were. Actually i do what you just remember. The singing singing praises to the king. But that's another thing but singing praises just praises an expression of worship proclamation and declaration of god is and is usually set to music so we d right. There was a form of praise and worship and so my question is how many of you praise the lord. How many of you because your situation or your circumstance is bad or you going through a trial or hardship that you hang your head you hang your harp on the tree and you say how can i sing in the middle of this of this captivity. That's what the people are guys. Say when they were under a under the ruler in babylon exile there. How can we seem right now. Harsh is not the time for you to joop your hair. Hardship visit time for you to stand up and start seeing in because true worship it to and to breakthrough happens through the hardship. We know that all these work for the good of those who love jesus and are called according to his purpose. So why would you get up is saying. And i'm not saying that is easy. I'm some days where i did not want to get out of bed. But i'm gonna tell you when i started singing. There was something that would begin to move in my spirit. It would cause me to act differently. Were caused me to think differently. And start believing and trusting and having faith in our lord jesus christ that he can heal my mother that he can chase this. Kobe situation that he change the things that are happening within our family. He can do some different things with them he can. He can lose me of the scene. That i'm so entangled with. He can do that for you too. But you gotta start saying this is not the time to be closed. Some open our mouth the scene. You see the second second chronicles twenty. We see this in your fat four four enemies again. Surrounded malcolm man. God has a way of doing stuff that we have no answer for surrounded for enemies for enemy surrounded him and instead of sending armies i you know what he said before you. You would think this you would think he. I'm not a military guy. But i don't know who's the i which i don't know who the first to go in the military who i in our armed forces who who goes who is the ground. I the marine corps. There you go. What is it what you're saying. Ooh hoo ride the. He didn't send the marines. He didn't send the air force. peterson army. You know who he said the worshippers worshipers go read it. Second chronicles chapter twenty reader for yourself. It said he sent the worshippers before him and he said as soon as they opened up their mouth ambush was set for their enemies. They were confused. They were bound. They had to flee because they had no idea because the worship of god and the praise of guy had went forth. So my question for you today. Are you praising the lord in the middle of your heart than the breakthrough for you the breakthroughs for people to see and i believe that the world is watching you and me and how we go through this thing because they said that there. There was people listening the jailer. If you re further the jailer was like what is going on. How can i be saved. So people watching the thing that i'm encouraging you to do is not even for you it's for your neighbor is for your unbelieving sign your unbelieving sister. Your unbelieving brother. Your mother. Whoever death for them to be able to see you through christ's and we can bring people to christ we can start bringing people to the house we can start bringing people into this place so they can be field so they can raise love that unity they can. They can see what it feels like. They're pray together and worship god together they could feel that encourage you right now because i don't know where you look everybody's facing it the same i've never experienced in my life. I'm forty years old. I have been through everything. But i've experienced this where the entire world is going through this. I think and i believe egypt preparing for revival. But we got to be ready.

"Is a vital part of who and what god wants us to do especially in the middle of a hardship but again there's been difficulty there's been ways that we can't be together but but i want to tell you that every morning son can attest i have two guys that were actually. There's three people there we get on the phone. Call eight fifteen in the morning and again. These aren't guys that look like me. These are too old white dude's okay. We get on a fall every morning and fifteen. We sing sang song. We singing the same song. We read the word and we pray every day for my mother for our friends for families that they will be healed in that guys will will be done in our lives every day. Unity unity in the body but in that unity unity without transparency. You've got to be willing to say. Hey look man. this is where i'm at. I'm having a hard data. I it's really hard for me to not think about my mother and the possibility of not with me in a year. It's hard for me to pray right now. On my list you're gonna take humility. Understanding we are not in control. God is in control and most importantly is gonna take love. If with the it's gonna take those things. And so. I believe god is calling us to tom of unity not uniformity. We don't have to look the same. We don't have to think the same. We gotta be singing the same song man. Come on we gotta start singing the same song. Is jesus real. Yes did he. Dafur for your sins. Yes yes cigna. Same song the second thing. And i think an passage in was talking about getting back to basics. It's a shame to know. Now i don't know the numbers. How few believers have unity people that they pray with life together. They are fellowship with people. How few believers prey on a regular basis. How people how few people actually light sing. Praises to guy and so we're giving life ground level like this ain't no hard. This is really life. The the grass roots of what it looks like to get through horseshoe. And i don't feel like you need hot. The guy i think if we keep it simple he'll be okay. I'm serious. He kept his simple. It's us we these difficult but the second thing was it said that they were. They were praying on. My goodness in prayer is simply commute fellowship of Petitioning talking to god and listening and responding to him so prayer is not this big thing. Just like talking. It communion constant communion with the lord. And it's okay. If you don't know how to pray the disciples printing as can you teach me how to pray and s okay so you should be asking how to pray so okay. You don't have to pray like pastor. Used to play like you talked to guy. There's power in prayer. It says in except for varsity. Wanna get in axo. You need to be reading the book of acts if you don't if you haven't you better read it this month or something you better read it fine. You better find some time here. It is they say after they pray the place where they were meeting was shaking. I don't know if you want some things it'd be shaken up your life for the good end the bag. You better start praying. I don't know if you've got some shadows on your feed you got you are bound to something or is there. A cnn is holding you and that is keeping you. You better start praying because they said when when they pray together. These was shaking. That's what it said they were. It was shaking and they feel with the holy spirit. My goodness do you want to be filled with the holy spirit spoke the word of god boldly. I'm telling you. God is doing something in his church. And you better be ready. You better learn how to pray you better learn how to pray in so we see that there is a power impre. I remember was ten years ago. My uncle they say you got ten percent chance to live in kaiser harbor city and there was a waiting room and my son was one year one year of age. He was a year. Oh he probably don't remember this but there was his white enrollment it was it was it was like seven thirty at night on their forget that came in told the wife and his three sons. Hey he has ten percent chance and you would think the whole time. I hang our heads and and how man what a good life he lived and he was a great pastor. You know what happened. It was amazing man. Every time.

"Will we fought our tents and and and lead the mission. That guy has on. This is the first thing that i've picked up and it doesn't say it explicitly but it says there at midnight paul in silence. I believe that that the author of acts made it a point to show that it was paul and silas because there is power went two or three are gathered in the name of jesus there he east and so there is power in unity when when when we are unified as levers there is nothing. There is no devil. Inhale they could stop the things that god has for us and so the first thing. I believe that there. Paul tells us in shows us right here is that it requires unity. To thrive through hardship. Unity is up. I believe a prerequisite for the spirit of god to be unleashed on his people and within the world. The you guys remember you guys went through as you guys. Remember next chapter two. I know pastor jim. He's the man full of the spirit. I think you guys can go a weekend without hearing about the gifts of the spirit in in and speaking in tongue and the power of the holy goes but you guys remember said that when they were all together now when they were divided but when they were all together in one room they might not have been playing the same instruments but they was playing the same song it when they were all in the room together. That's when the spirit fail. That's when the tones fell upon them. That's when they were able to go and do the work that got to call them to do before. Jesus left he said. Man i'm calling you to make disciples of all nations. It wasn't until they were all.

"World. I believe but i get a call from my sisters in kevin. You need to come home my you. Would you how you how you want me to do. You want me to fly. Like mom got stay for breast cancer. You gotta come home. And i'm thinking hong guy man. I've been faithful even doing this time. I've been. I've been still serving. I've still been doing everything that you've asked me to do. And and on top of all of this this stuff you. My mother has staged breast cancer. I have never had to do with faith in reality in in that way. I was like god. Are you serious me like my mother-in-law expecting that as i as i had to get over myself and figure. Hey guys what you. What are you trying to do in this. How you trying to bring my family back together. What are you doing. How would just twenty twenty was was something else. Twenty twenty one. I don't know if it'll be better. I don't know. But i know that i have hoping jesus although we have hope in jesus because if we had it our way we wouldn't have hardship. We wouldn't have our children walking away from the faith. We wouldn't have a divorce in our homes. We wouldn't have this stay at home or we wouldn't have financial issues would have disease. That's running rampant on our world. We wouldn't have those things would have a racial divides we wouldn't have these these different things with political parties and we wouldn't have that if it was up to at least i knew i wouldn't because as a coach As a coach. I would never draw that player. That's the play that i would. I would up in the trash and set it on fire but the truth is is that that's what that's that's been our situation into alternate believers believe we take a look at our circumstance and the truth is that we're not always responsible for the circumstance that we were in. There was nothing. I couldn't do for my mother with her diagnosis states. Where there's nothing that we could do about corona corona virus. I call her. Cocoa are got a gave her name. I gave her name so we know each other. You know not intimately but we know each other you know but we. We had no control over there. I had no control over that but we do have control of as believers is our response to the circumstance that has been placed before us. And so we're gonna take a look at. We're going to take a look at acts chapter sixteen inch if you have your bibles or your phone. Please take it out. I wanna i wanna look at acts chapter. Sixteen i is twenty five hundred twenty and i would encourage you all to if you if you have not read the book of acts. Take your time and go through but focus on x. Chapter sixteen this week is it's a really good really good chapter and it's really good story and so if you have a say a man okay. Can you please talk back to me. Because again i'm used to. I haven't been in spaces together right like this. Talk back to me. The only conversation that i'm having this with my kids. They're yelling and screaming at the time hitting each other and then what my wife and we're so we're so close together. Yeah so so. Talk back to me please. If say some and you like you say a man or something you know you know. let's go. let's you know i man. I misunderstood verse. Twenty five but at midnight pollen. Silas were praying and singing hymns to guy and the prisoners were listening to them. I twenty six. Suddenly there was a great art quite so that the foundation of the prison were shaking and immediately. All the doors were open. Everyone's change for loose and the keeper of the prison awakening from sleep and seeing the prison. Doors open supposing. The prisoners have fled drew his sword and was about to kill himself for paul with a loud voice. Saying do yourself no harm for. We're all here. That's the reading of god's word today lord let me decrease that you may increase a man so right here we see paul and silas imprison because they were omission for ga. They were on a mission for like the blues brothers. Were on a mission from god. Remember that movie right. They were on a mission for god. Paul wanted to go one place but he saw vision of a man crying out from macedonia. Saint come we need help. So have you guys know that when god called it somewhere we need to just start going and whatever happens there. We just need to know that. God is doing something even when we don't see him he's working right he never stops. So he's on he's on. He's on a missionary journey to this place and he runs into antagonize it. It was a woman that was of our just say demon possessed or she was a senior or fortune teller. She was basically going around following. Paul silas as they were going to pray. And these are the sons of god. These are the men of god and doing this and doing all of that. And paul got so tired turned around and said man. I'm calling s spirit out of you come on out of you. And what people didn't realize is that that she was a worker for higher ups and so she was making a lot of money telling the future and things like that. You know khloe all that. I let me tell you a future and all of that. She was doing that. Stuff is so so when they caught it out. They got very very upset. You know money is. The root of the love of money is root of all evil and so they loved that money and this this young lady was their their pot of gold and she was no longer useful so they drove paul and silas into the middle of the court. Probably something like this is probably more people at stores and all around and just beating. They beat them with poll with ryan did see flatness said after they were severely beaten. So it wasn't just a spanking that you give your child with you. Know which your hands the tap. it was feeding. It was leading edge after they were beaten. They were thrown in jail. So we pick up right here. Where paul and silas are in jail. Can you imagine the wounds that they had on everybody. Sitting in the jail strapped again they were in the innermost part of the. They weren't like on the oscar. They were like these guys are dangerous so here let me locked him down. That'd be. I'm i'm to i'm gonna put them where they surely won't be able to escape. So can you imagine whips and bruises in an open source and you sit near and in pain but the first thing i want to see in this is how we endure this. Not only endured but thrive too harsh it in this life. They're going to be trouble. But jesus said take heart. Because i've overcome the world so as a as a believer. You better believe that is coming. You better believe that that trial is at our front door. You better know that satan wants to knock you off of mission you better know that but again our response the question is how would we respond when we were we. Were we blow up as we say in the blow up as the coach. Don't phone.

You know as pastor. Jim said i. I am born and raised in kansas city. I am still kansas city boy proud to be from near so there is no conflict in my heart about. Who should win today.

He's he's a big guy now but zachariah he's here with me this morning he's co-pilot today's on just thankful to be here and i'm thankful to the atmosphere charged for having me on super sunday and i'm excited to be with you. I know pastor. Jim have been going to the book of accident last for four or five weeks right talking about the great reset and using the book of acts to talk about what the church should look like. And i believe that's a a wonderful place to start to use acts as as a training manual for us as a church. I believe god is using this time of covid. Nineteen to raise the charger to as he said reset the churches mindset to what we should be about and not what we used to be. We don't want to go back to business as usual right. We don't wanna go back to business as usual kind of like it out here. Because i'm sure that those that are on the on the golf course. They could hear some of the things that are being said. I don't know if it's true but the mice are loud enough. And i'm pretty sure the word projects you know. God has a way of projecting his words right. And so i mean. I don't believe god wants us to Go back to normal And in our conversations as we're talking this week. As i mentioned what's the vibe of the church was been going on. He told me about the great reset in the book of acts like. But there's one thing. I didn't get to talk about and that was hardship. And i was thinking i how do you talk about x. harsher so cool that's what i'll talk about. I'll talk about hardship. And i don't think that that's an easy topic for people to understand and to comprehend into into know that as a christ follower he's not easy this is. This is not something that you just come in to and you walk out without any bumps or any bruises when you walk with the lord. There's gonna be some hardship. There's gonna be some some trial there's gonna be some tribulation in were reminded us in james chapter one that consider it pure joy when you face trials and temptations of many kinds because it's producing this wonderful thing in producing maturity lead. Perseverance have his work so we can be mature pricing. I don't know about you. But i want to be mature in christ. I don't want to be a infant are my life. I want to grow up strong. Like my son is right now but how would increase right. I wanna be. I wanna be strong and mature in christ and i believe that. That's what the lord desires for. His people is that we need to be mature in christ fall but with their four with maturity it comes hardship. I was talking to a family yesterday and we were. We were. I was actually. You know counseling a young man and we're talking about. Why haven't you been motivated like what's what's going on. Why why don't you do that. You need to do to make sure you're getting a grade and things like that. He was like man. I just really really not not filling. It and and i like to do things when people tell me that i'm doing well. I like to do things when i know that i can. I achieved the first time. And i know that i can continue to do it again. And in the back of my mind. I was like so what happens if somebody tells you that. You can't do it. What happens when you fail. Do you just stop. And the and and as i was talking to him and i was thinking about this house i i think that's the mindset of of of the church. Sometimes we say yes to jesus. We have this mountaintop top experience. And then we start coming down the mountain and then we start hitting those those valleys and we start getting punched in the face and we start and we meet we. We have to meet trial at his front door. And he's like. I don't know if i want to go through this but i'm here to encourage you today and i want to show you an example of what it looks like to not only endure hardship but actually thrived through far fortunate. Because here's the deal. All of us faces some type of hardship right now. I don't care where were you are you you know. Let's let's take a look at twenty twenty. You know. I mean my goodness you start you start off you lose. Lose sports for some of that was like the worst thing like no sports. Al-tv know over me. It was like how man hey came watch. The nba finals can see the lakers win the championship. When as opposed to like not. Until i don't even remember when the season started and finished and all of that but it was no support. There might not be a football season. Can you imagine no football i. I'm literally ross. Is like the super bowl is here but then next week there's no more football you know someone. How man basketball's okay. I know we got basketball. People your son joe. He's he's a basketball. I'm sorry. Nba nfl but but then we started losing jobs in layoffs. Then we we. We had a stay at home orders. What you couldn't interact with people. I can you imagine you know. Jim said he believes that. Transformation happens not enrolled but in circles and that means when we're together and we couldn't be together that was tough and not to mention what was going on inside of your own homes right the mirror to dysfunctions your children struggling in stay home. Stay at home school. Whatever it is. I don't even know what i mean. We're getting used to it. But i still can ever get to your child sitting in front of a computer day learning in talking to talking to screen something about being together and then for me. It was like man. I get a phone call from from my social back home in kansas city. The best city in the in the.

"There's a guy who's asleep asleep. Yeah i love that. I love that. I love it so much highest compliment that i have gotten as i've gotten i've actually hit other comics accused me of being a plant. There's been a little stuff. A little murmuring. That i've heard great because that means that was so good that it doesn't seem real so i take that as a compliment. Even though they're absolutely wrong i would never. I wouldn't ever put a plan. That would be a bad idea. That could come off so faith. Oh gosh could go back and watch the special. We're not gonna do okay. I rented i only have forty dollars. Sorry if you ever do in a little bit yeah eventually nonsol- everyone who listen to this but there's actually one of my favorite moments of the special is because i'm watching and reliving it and i've watched so many times because i went through the editing. You i'm i'm setting up a joke and you see my eyes. Catch him i go. He is this guy. And then i go back to my joke and then i look back again to confirm and now the good news is on the second. Said we do two shifts of course and if you'd have fallen asleep the first show. I don't know that. I would have said anything because i was like we already have one in the can but i know if we can create a moment here. Then this'll be one of the highlights of the sure and it did turn into that. And i was as it was happening. I was like this is so fun. I think that's very bold of you. I think a lot of comics would have just been like. That's not happening. i'm going to not i'm not. I'm not sure. Or because because i think that does show like yeah. I think some weaker comics would think that. That's a weak moment. But i love that you grabbed onto your like. Are you fucking kidding. Was he sleeping and he was. He was yes we watched he was. He was fully out at that point. I woke him up and he was. It was so bizarre because we were only twelve minutes in right. It was really really really deep into the special at that point. Like what did this guy do events that he just sat down. He's like finally at the end of a hard day. I get to go down so thank you for saying that. I felt full disclosure in my act. I do a decent amount of crowd work but not a lot. I do it. When i feel like a half do but also full disclosure. I couldn't afford to have one crowd member asleep because everybody can see everybody. He's next three people and if he's asleep that means i'm going to lose this whole side and now a third of the crowd is out. I have everybody laughing. And and it ended up being one of the biggest pops of it and it kind of woke everybody up because i felt like the specials going good. Everything's working and then when that happens we all come like. I felt that i felt that moment. I felt like comedy feels like there's always a moment. That's what i was kind of saying like when you see a special a lot of times it feels like you're in a theater. You're doing this thing you've got your thing but like this felt like a a live comedy show right and i loved that about it and get that a lot and it was also an outside show. So there's a couple of times you hear a plane go over me and then there's also were next to that hazardous waste and it was a cold nights in so the the found this out afterwards like the chemicals were like expanding my god. And that's why you keep hearing. Bung bong it happened.

"Them out. They won't do. They've been drinking since two the day before through and the rest of the show is absolute fire. But yeah but. I do remember on the pod. If there was any energy that you would have caught. That was me negative towards her. Because i do. I really like you as a person. I totally hate your opinion on. Stand up comedy. Which is my point because you were like because even the first thing i said when when we came up here we were down there. You're like fifty two minutes. That's a long time what's a compliment is when somebody's like. Oh my gosh. It was over so fast that you're like fifty two minutes and that is really think standups not your thing now because you were talking about going to these weird dumb ult- shows people are like reading books for sure and you love. This does not belong in the world of stand up comedy. I hate it. I hate it so much. He remembers that. That's where i think. But that's nothing to do with you. Personally i just think bad taste. I i it blows my mind. I think that's such a feat to be able to stand up there and be by yourself up if you did. Actually just she did. Just say that the first thing we said like sheesh who got a seven minute one hour yeah fifty to condenses to stop and read a book up there for a while a small guitar. Some stupid stuff. Juggling act somewhere was was me for real knowing that if it got back to him that hit that you and i were talking shit. I at least wanted him to know that like. That's true relation to that area cares. But i wanted to like not have it be. I wanted you to know at least my you could. You could back like okay. Merrill also know you enough and have seen you in so many situations where if you think someone doesn't like you you either like flip your hair and there's lots of them i don't care they're a piece of garbage or you go. I'm going to make them like me. Those are the only two options and in this case. Luckily for us. I mean you said dustin will be my best life right and i never disliked you. So that's you either yeah. I don't think you're paying attention even told i told bo that i think your funnier than i. This is going to be back in. You might not like at the end of this episode. You know extremely funny. I didn't i didn't know that. Much of your comedy before you on bo had no had no new from the city stuff and then when i finally started following you i was like your tweets are so so funny and then now i'm dustin fan. Thanks we'll now. I really like you okay. So you're funny. I love this beef. But we're going to transition. Because i do want to talk about your tweets because i often wonder how the fuck does when you're tweeting. It must be so much pressure. You got to keep that up. All the time is that a. Is that a pain in your ass or do you love it. It's actually a nice outlet for me because my brain already kind of things that like. I'm already like i mean that's the life of really anyone in like you know creative world is like you're constantly creating but the thing that our ideas and like we just come up with critical thoughts and ideas and jokes in irony in takes and all that kind of stuff and so twitter is like a nice place to just go put that out there and if people like it to maybe put it on other platforms and if it's a really rich idea that people seem to really like okay. Is this something that i develop into bit so at times. It's exhausting because that's the the constant pressure of the internet. It just because when you have a great thought of course you're right. Wanted to hear it but then on those days where you're like i'm not feeling it. You feel like you still have to share something. Yes every day right all the multiple times a day right. yeah so what. Is there anything that you said that. Got a really bad response. Like fuck you. You're an idiot. I like that you think there would just be one so many posted about some political stuff. You followed it up with like people who have been mad about this. I yeah i like doing nat the because the only way that i can deal with. Trolls is to ignore them altogether. Which is very hard but to me. That's the ultimate of just like. Oh i'm not gonna let you know that. I even know you exist. Okay oh but at the same time. I don't have that many follow like sometimes you'll have a post and we'll have like three comments and that troll will be like. I know we saw her you. I all three comments and the other two comments have my last name little nepotistic but the but really the only way. And i've got i've gotten better at this is just laughing at them and then when i can share them like i did one today where i like. Sometimes i'm surprised that when people get butthurt over it because you know i'm like this. I don't know how many times this is like my go-to response now to people. This is a comedy account. This rise is going to be like the first thing. My is joke teller like this is i you know and people are like i did one. You commented on it for you said i love you destin. Actually i love you where i don't understand. She's because masks are such a crazy divisive thing and i love. I wouldn't have maybe once again. This is the story. I'm telling myself is.

No swimming at some Long Island beaches due to shark sightings
"Growing after Mohr shark sightings, the shark was spotted close to shore at the Hempstead Point. Lookout Beach Lifeguard also spotted a large shark near the shoreline at Lido Beach. West and Sharks also seen it. Nickerson Beach. These are just a few of a number of shark sightings yesterday on Long Island beaches and lifeguards had the shut those beaches. The swimming on Get a really hot summer day. I'm Scott Pringle, double the authorities. Ah,
New York City beaches open for holiday weekend, no swimming allowed
"A few days at the beach is typically a no brainer for Memorial Day weekend needless to say it is a little bit more complicated this year some beaches are open some are restricting who can go others are restricting what you can do there here to tell us where new Yorkers and new Jerseyans can go to welcome the summer wireless socially distancing is WNYC's Karen Yi and the Jake often hearts of Gothamist Karen Jake hello hi David it it it there is still so much we don't know about cope with nineteen but many epidemiologists say that with social distancing precautions in place heading to the beach does not pose a large threat for people in low risk groups Cameron let's start with you governor Murphy said beaches would re open for the holiday weekend is that right yes that's right so Murphy has said if speech is re opened they need to limit the amount of people on the beach and enforced social distancing so it's really gonna be up to each municipality to decide how to do that and what parts of the beaches or boardwalks to re open so remember not all of the beach is closed during the pandemic some have already re opened and some remain partially close and it's equally as complicated in New York City right Jake governor Cuomo joined New Jersey Connecticut and Delaware to open up the beaches but mayor bill de Blasio technically won't open up city beaches that's right David New York City is fourteen miles on public beaches are technically close what that really means is the beaches are closed to swimming sports picnics many of the social things people go to the beach for but you can still walk sit on the beach or even dip your feet into the water up to your ankles the idea is to discourage nothing Yorkers from going to the beach so it's not over crowded what about beaches on Long Island to Jones beach the Hamptons these are very popular spots for new Yorkers or they could be an option many all island beaches will be open this weekend but they're not exactly rolling out the red carpet for us New York City residents several towns including East Hampton have plans to limit or entirely banned outsiders from their shores that's led to some regional contentions of Nassau County official had to walk back in down and out of towners on Nickerson beach after my colleague Sylvia Chang points out that beaches that receive federal funding must be open to the public the state run beaches like Robert Moses in Jones beach will be open to everyone but they're restricting capacity to fifty percent and governor Cuomo says people could be turned away from parking lot as early as ten AM single parking is always a problem and beaches in both states Karen tell us about the Jersey Shore is parking to be restricted even more than usual yes so again it's gonna come down to home rule it's New Jersey right so it's gonna be up to each town since sandy hook which is run by the National Park Service is limiting parking to fifty percent and so is island beach state park which is run by the state mayors have told me that they're gonna be announcing reminders on loudspeakers there's gonna be civilian ambassadors patrolling the boardwalk there's gonna be a lot of signage but really it's gonna have to come down to trust trust that people will do the right thing and act responsibly what Jake in New York City you have reported on members of the NYPD enforcing social distancing measures in physically aggressive ways in the subways and on city streets can new Yorkers expect a large police presence on the beaches what is the plan for monitoring resource can definitely expect to see a major law enforcement presence this weekend and why PDP stale has been up thirty percent they'll be joined by parks police and thousands of social distancing ambassadors similar to New Jersey if things get too crowded the mayor says they may even put up fencing literally barricading the beaches anyone who tries to swim will be ordered out well in New Jersey some mayors are concerned about not enough police presence on the beaches Cameron that what are you hearing I spoke two point pleasant beach mayor Paul Kenitra and he's very concerned about this so his speech is partially open not the boardwalk so this means that Jenkins beach is also gonna be close but the biggest problem for him and re opening everything is that he says he can't hire the seasonal officers who normally boost up as police force during the summer because all the training academies are closed so for the things that are open for the part of each that is open he says this weekend will be a test run for whether the precautions they've implemented will work we need to see how realistic it is to have our badge checkers wearing the mask and gloves and in hot weather we need to make sure that our lifeguards are able to you know the date people and do things appropriately with the set up that we have one up one down on the lifeguard stands in with the new half the filters for their resuscitation devices so the mayor said there's really no playbook for this I mean everybody is really trying out what works for their particular beach okay so if people can solve the puzzle of finding an open beach what happens when they get there will there be open public restrooms or boardwalk restaurants open for food pickup so curbside pickup is allowed for nonessential businesses take out is going to continue for restaurants a New Jersey recently allowed to go cocktails on the public restroom issue again that's going to depend on the town whether they decide to open those or how they apply limits to that the one thing that the state is encouraging is that everyone wear a mask right and it's the same thing in New York there will be some to go through the options available re sparked beaches are is open many of the vendors on Coney Island and they'll be some bathrooms and Porta potties starting this weekend and finally you keep in mind the water's going to be fifty five degrees not exactly swimming weather even if you are out yeah I think that's gonna keep a lot of people out of the water we'll have to hear much more about how it goes this weekend WNYC's Karen Yi and the Gothamist reporter Jake often hearts thank you for joining us thanks
10 Years After Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, Industry Says It's Better Prepared
"Ten years ago an explosion on the deepwater horizon drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico killed eleven people and oil gushed into the Gulf for almost three months today. Offshore drilling is more regulated but has enough been done to prevent another accident. Here's NPR's Jeff Brady one of the biggest changes since the deepwater horizon accident is on the Gulf coast near Corpus Christi Texas at the Dockside Facility of marine well containment company with the wind blowing. Ceo David Nickerson shows off five capping. Stacks similar to the device that finally stopped crude flowing into the goal.

Saints of Spain; David Suchet Footsteps of St. Paul; Michelangelo In Florence
"Whether you're looking at Michelangelo's magnificent statue of David or you get caught up in a ruckus crowd at a street festival in Spain or even if you just listen to the wind whisper. What life was once like among the sun bleached ruins of the Mediterranean? Your travels can lift your spirit in many ways. Hi I'm Rick Steves in just a bit. We'll take a closer look at the world. Michelangelo lived in influence. Five hundred years ago and actor. David Suchet tells us how he retraced the route that Saint Paul traveled through the eastern Roman Empire. Nearly two thousand years ago. Let's start the hour with a look at how people in Spain honor the lives of important figures from their past. There are actually hundreds of national and regional saints in Spain. And you'll find that many of them get a festival that brings their communities out into the streets to celebrate to explain the role of Saint in the culture of Spain. We're joined now by tour guides or hate Roman from Madrid and Francisco Gloria from pump. Lona or Hey in Francisco. Happy Easter Thank. You thank you so. Spain is a Catholic country in in the church is a huge part of the political and spiritual past. To what extent is the Catholic Church? Still a big part of Spanish society. Today it is. I mean now. The government that we have now is very conservative and they relates a political issues with the church. Not Everybody is happy about that but still part of it and also the most of the celebrations in Spain national holidays. They advocated saints. Lady's name names. I think a lot how. How does the naming of children work compared to the Catholic faith? I mean you're or hey your Cisco do they have any with your parents. Passion for Saints a Whole Mike. As many Ms Francis Xavier because your middle name is executive because for some frantic savior was born in my town so and he was the first Jesuit Right. He was one of the founders of Jesuits Yep okay main signatures which is a very common name. Ignatius and Francisco Xavier. That's a common name where you come from pump loan and actually my name is the ACLU into English degeorge and is the only saint in the Catholic Church actually wasn't a saint also warrior that killed the Dragon Saint George killing the Dragon. Yeah it wasn't saying actually but so there are a lot of festivals when you travel in and almost all of them seem to be related to the church. Talk about a couple of the the great festivals in the Saints Days. That are important in your life in your travels Francisco I am from component the running of the Bulls on what we celebrate. The death of Seinfeld mean so. It's like huge huge celebration. That week starts July six hundred ends July fourteenth saint for me and I. You wouldn't even know who saint for me unless you went to. The running of the Bulls and pump. Lana developed comes from employees. They don't even know who he is attacked because everybody wears the red Kerchief around their neck and when people go to the running of the Bulls they wear this red neckerchiefs symbolism planet. We are under two hundred thousand people. I didn't know we. We welcome one million people and everybody's wearing white unread and nobody knows why like. Excuse me you do get excuse me. I'M A tour guide. I want to explain to you why. You're wearing this red handkerchief. That was the first person that was baptized employees and they cut his head for the recent. So what we represent the white outfit Represents Holiness and the Redmond nights the blood coming out of his neck so he was an early Christian. Pump Loner who was beheaded. Yes he was. We hit it. We say that he was beheaded any Pamplona although history tells us that he was beheaded in France. But Hey ho hey. From Madrid what festivals would impact a traveler when that we should know about quite Madrid? Not Maniacs you say but there is one very close which is Toledo the Corpus Christi is the big the there in Corpus Christi in Toledo is and that's the the corporate the body the body of Christ that's correct. Yeah and that's the Big Day in Toledo and they do bring some things to parade around. And he's part of a could be the equivalent of the beaches. Pelton SPAIN LIKELY. You have here states them. They're very conservative in there. That's interesting because in the United States We've got a region called the Bible Belt in Spain. Is there a region that would be the Bible belt get could be the political? Be One of them if you go around. Let's say like half Mouche from Madrid to the West from Madrid to the West Toledo Arbella. Salunke that part of your Browning what do you? What is your image of being? We'll have to think that we had the Muslim heritage Muslim heritage started to come down of it from the north down. Thanks Community Santos on James. Drake has just for the historic context. The Muslims came in and took over Spain and Portugal in from the eighth century until fourteen. Ninety two a good part of Spain was ruled by Muslim overlords. And then for centuries there was the RECON keystone reconquering has finally fourteen ninety two. The last Muslim was pushed out of Granada and back into Africa. What I make the difference that the Community Santiago okay. The origin was by the coast and it was the beginning of the Spanish reconquista. So this is the Camino Santiago. This is the big pilgrimage trail that cuts across from France all the way across north Spain the major city in the north west of Spain Santiago de Compostela. They'll go and How what's the historical roots for this pilgrimage? Because thousands and thousands of people make this high out there still do it people at the beginning they did it by the coast so those kingdoms those ancient kingdoms there the realize that whatever was going there were no Muslims so th would they decided to push it south and south and south and south until the Camino we know today so I am from the north in the north we barely have any Muslim heritage. We were more Christine. Must time before. But if you go down to under Lucia there you find. Churches generally built upon a mosque. Correct and mosque was built upon a church than they destroyed. If you go to civilian you see them at Nickerson Tarver. A Cathedral Tower actually was the minaret of the old mosque. So there's this layering of history. And what's very poignant to me? Is We hear about people. Being beheaded today in this struggle of fanatic Islam and Christians and so on but if you go to a church in southern Spain it's very common to see a man on a horse with a big sword cutting off the heads of Muslims and at the feet of the Horse. There's six or eight heads of beheaded Muslims as correct. Lose this man that is son James. The son teams we're representing three ways bishop as more slayer the more slayer so his. His nickname was saint. James the slater the more killer. Well enter the Moore's for the Muslims. Yeah most of our lives and today's politically incorrect. So we're beginning to cover those heads on the floor seriously. Some of those old statues and paintings are getting with put flowers well enough so you hide them so you hide you see a guy on a white horse with a sore but every time a Christian is just so disgusted by a Muslim fanatic. That cut off one of his people's heads we've got to remember. This is nothing new in history Spanish. I consider myself Catholic. We've been the worst ever I mean. We've inquisition the request. We have expelled. The Jews I mean with excuse of religion with Don's much bad. The inquisition is Sort of gift of Spain to the rest of Europe. What gave yeah. I poisoned gift. Would you describe the The inquisition you see the palace don't you out l. escorial that's right correct. What is the inquisition? Mean to to church history It's a sad episode. I mean this might personal opinion. Very site I mean also gave us practical thing. But it's a very very sad history. Every time I talk to them to my travelers about inquisition unites ties with Catholic moral and they kept going on.

"Won't be as people leave or skeptic podcast a podcast RETU- idiots debate. We're phenomena I'm Chris. I'm the believer. I'm I'm the skeptic and if this is your first time let's see tests where an Algebra q? Paranormal comedy podcasts. And this is a full episodes and this is the first time listening. Are We pick a topic already? And we're GONNA share some really fun history and information in stories and then I talk about why people don't believe or ID bunket and he talks about why people do and this topic is going to be kind of all over the place. Yeah well it's while actually. This is being recorded before Valentine's Day but it will come out after all times day but just soon after. I like the Monday after. Yeah so that'll be fine so first year. We did a valid special APHRODISIACS than last year. We did it crimes of the heart of the heart and I totally forgot about that and they still hate Valentine's because guess who's alone again this year. Some you know what I mean I. I'll see your cat would totally does it. He so loving. He can't give me a the had taken me on a day. You don't know anyways. We decided on an episode about go for it. Because you don't know how I don't I don't because to me. It's really close to aphrodisiacs. Not really because I'm talking about different things because me too. I mean it's dedicated to love about fertility and different aspects and it was kind of like love objects like a pair of marrying object started altered the yeah but we both kind of diverged bid and mine is technically true. It's a paranormal love object. You'll see I know. They're not paranormal. But they're both true are they okay. Mine is definitely definitely. Parents factual okay. That'll be a good a good like mix then fake minor. Fake just like my breasts. I want to do a whole episode though. On how? And then I'll debunk them. You don't lead them people. You're beautiful just the way you are anyways so so that I don't know what you have to do drinks history you already. What are you categorize this topic? What are you calling it does love? I guess so because love adjacent I can say what my half is. I'm actually talking all about SPEKTR affiliate. Which is people who fall in. Love and have sex with ghosts. I WanNa do a whole topic on this because as I was looking into it. It is wild and my stories. I don't present a lot of information. Actually none in the stories are really just kind of sex and so I think we could still do an exploration of the topic in the future. An I whole heartedly encourage it because yes and mine are ones are more related to fertility. GonNa save more advocates. His biological clock is ticking. So should we do drinks while he already been drinking? No I have another one. This is this is my backup drink. That tastes good. You said it tasted grows well better than the other thing I got about that. What does it okay? Well first let me get my main one so I was still and I admit when I grab this. I was still on the topic of aphrodisiacs. Because that's what we did our Minnesota on and so I found the reason I got back up because it's an gross but it is called moon juice. I've had oh and I'm like and that's to me whenever we're thinking of Wu and we learned that at the UFO con from now on. I encourage everyone else to do this. I'm calling APHRODISIACS. Move Juice because it's Wu and this is a giant forty of galactic IFA. It's going to be disgusting. Santan makes good beer. Yes it does make beer. I like their stuff as a backup because we're talking about Valentine's Day. I got a sweet strawberry so chocolate covered strawberries and it's paying so it's Valentine's I'm rationalizing shut up by his Valentine's and it's called a cupid's kiss ooh in a while it's my take on it because I couldn't find all the ingredients I wanted at the grocery store specific literally just a glass of sprite specifically orange bidders. I couldn't find anyways. That's cool so what it hasn't it is muddled raspberries and meant lime juice. Garvey and then white cambric juice and then they put some concern. Oh my God. I have to try this. That sounds so amazing. If anyone likes really happy as I think you're really like this. It's vile open with him. It's disgusting because dump it out for fun. Okay let's get back on track history history since we're talking about well since I'm talking about fertility and love and all that other bullshit I thought I'd talk about these are actually. He's telling personal true story. Talk about something sort of related different. Okay nothing says law like Erotica. So I'm going to give you a brief history on erotica first off the word. Erotica derives from the Greek God Eros Sherm who was God of Love Physical Desire and passion. She knew this in Roman mythology. He's known as Cupid Erotica has been around for thousands of years and is historically depicted in all cultures and some guy can really imagine like way like ancient people. Jacking up to cave drawings actually drawing the monk is it really did it. They go about that okay. Although it cannot really be said of many of the depictions that have been found. Were for pleasure for some aesthetic purpose or ritual aspect because you have to admit as Horny. Teenagers repressed reject off to some weird stuff. Maybe you okay. I checked off to some stuff like you would just see like I mean a picture in like a book. Nancy drew of Ned Nickerson playing football jack. Anyways there are cave. Paintings have been found depicting sexual acts erratic has been found in every era from Greek and Roman textbooks from the Middle Ages. The piece of Erotica found is a poem called Istanbul. Two four six one which was written on Sumerian cuneiform tablet and what year two for sixty. One I Dunno okay. It's pretty damn all. If it's on a cuneiform tablet bedded hasn't been translated. Do they know it says erotic you'd have to know is good. Even the Bible itself has a whole Chapter Song of songs at talks about sexual longing and love between a man and a woman To state the obvious Roddick wasn't always available in ancient times a little more so once the printing press was invented. That's true because you couldn't walk into the basalt tagline. Yeah this megastore by stone tablet with porn. I never that's true. Yeah so according to my research erotica really started to develop around the seventeen hundreds at the time. That novel started to become popular One of these early books came out in seventeen forty eight by John Cleland called memoirs of a woman of pleasure or more commonly known as Fannie Hill Fatty Fatty hills a widely known as one of the most prosecuted and banned books in history. Wow in the late seventeen. Hundreds of France we got books from the Marquette. Assad which exemplified sadomasochism. Obviously these books would have a huge influence on future novels with similar themes Because of the PURITANS Erotica started to become taboo and was considered unsophisticated during that era the quality of Erotica that time also obviously seem to decline although in the eighteen hundreds we did get some of the beginnings of male gay erotica the books the sins of the cities of the plane and the Tahiliani or the reverse of the medal but Erotica didn't start to again become popular until the early nineteen hundreds in the mid one thousand nine hundred erotic novels from Henry Miller Vladimir Nabokov an ice in one form of Erotica. It also became popular at this time. Was that of lesbian pulp fiction Yeah and may gay pulp. Fiction would also become a thing although not as popular as lesbian really occas. Yeah okay. Can I think statistically women read more erotic romance also into women being with each other so that true that too yeah so popular authors begin to write erotic under often underpin names such as Anne Rice? Who wrote the sleeping beauty quartet under the name? A N
Ski Areas Find Seasonal Workers in Short Supply
"Thanksgiving is the traditional start of the ski season in the United States. There's usually enough snow around for resorts to open by now but ski area's needs something else. Seasonal seasonal workers who are becoming harder to find Wyoming. Public Radio's Maggie. Mullen reports David Bird with the National Ski Areas Association says for a Long Time Ski Resorts had one big incentive to attract all the workers. They needed a season pass. Those days are long gone. That's true says Lauren. Duke with steamboat Springs Ski Resort in Colorado. She says it's tough to hire with unemployment around four percent nationally. The resort industry usually trends with the economy. Here at the base of the steamboats Christie Peak Express. Lift Duke says that means resorts have to do more. I think everyone in the ski industry is always looking for ways to make their workplace the best workplace steamboat has increased base wages to twelve dollars and fifty cents an hour about a buck. Fifty above Colorado's minimum wage wage seasonal workers. Stay on for nine to eleven months. You benefits like health insurance and paid time off and parental. Leave those only on for the ski season Get perks like warm lunch or dinner for three to five dollars and discounted lift tickets for friends and family. Plus their season pass committee used at other resorts in the area. deb Hallway. A twenty six season veteran of steamboats ski patrol says she seen affordable housing become more of an issue the amount of reasonable rental properties thirties. I think is certainly diminishing over time and and That's tough as second. Homes and services like AIRBNB VIR B O or reducing housing stock doc and resort areas more resorts are offering workforce. Housing steamboat offers some staff rentals for three hundred fifty two four hundred and fifty dollars a month. About two-thirds it's cheaper than the lowest end local free market rentals plus steamboats units are right next to the resort. Norma Nickerson says I kind of proximity is important. You'RE NOT GONNA drive from Denver all the Way Vale. Every single day as a worker Nickerson directs the University of Montana's Institute for Tourism and Recreation Research. I know that some of the ski resorts have said well. If we don't get full staff were in were right on that edge and then of course somebody gets sick or they can't be there for few days. The the administrative people are out there doing those jobs just to fill in. And when that doesn't cut it she says resorts cut down on services like reducing restaurant on ours enclosing particular runs. You're leaving money on the table. They don't WanNa do that. But they're forced to another wrinkle. In Industries labor market resorts have traditionally nations depended on foreign workers in the US on J. One visas but it trump administration executive order placing restrictions on that program. Means that pool of employees has also been reduced. David Bird says it's not just a problem across the rockies. What I hear a lot from ski area owners and operators and it's true grew from large resorts down to small resorts? We're not feeling close to all the jobs that we have better available and if you do land one of those jobs you'll still get the season pass but ski resorts now know that alone.

Nothing's gonna crumble to the ground take three big inhales big exiles. And then figure it out from there. Get your mind to be able to re format itself to deal with all the hell that you're dealt. A no that at the end of that still going to be bad. That's right. That was that just took that from lost was with that. Jack did lost remember count to five thing. He must have a good therapist. Yeah. Your mom. He is a prolific if she was just a Queen. I I've done a little bit of win Hoffman stuff on the breathing and stuff, and I actually really liked that stuff as far. Oh, yeah. You. It's gonna be a rabbit trail that you go down on as far as gin oxygen to the brain. And you know, like window take progress and the different type residue or even things like when you're catching your breath. You do the two sniffs to an exile. In maximizing the oxygen that you get and stuff like that, so helpful because I've had to get better at it because I like started swimming because I'm old, and that's what old guys do out. And I was like I could make it like two laps as I'm going to drown. I need to get better at this breed and stuff. So anyway, that's that's fun tangent. For people to go down when it's really fun. I remember I took a breath work class and the lay down on your back. And then it was a two was this for you. You were taking Brentwood. What's last month? This city. I went to it. We're laying down, and it's a two-part breath where the first breath you you drought into your diaphragm. And then the second part. You you go chest. And then you breathe out through your mouth, you get caught not very quickly. But you do start like seeing things. Yeah. It's like I like the expressway to Nevada. Plan actually, not the existential paradise existence for band, you just get there. And then suddenly it smells like teen spirits. We're done here. We can't follow that vonda.

"And we'll do some John Kristen persons off air, and we'll be back shot. I knew I said it was going to be off. And we're back before we get into our tip jar round doesn't tell us all about what's going on in your world. Well, you know, if folks want to come see me do stand up comedy on my own so. So good make you I work very hard. The. Just call it into question that work ethic. Now, you're more of a naturally gifted person. Would you rather have I think he'd rather be? Wow. What a great question, gifted like or work ethic. I know mine, I don't know wrong answer. I would. I know exactly what you mean. 'cause I would say naturally, gifted, right? But like. We are hard working. But like you see you can have both hopefully both. But I listen to this. I again, I'm terrible tangents. But the terrible. I watched a Jason Witten was an NFL player. He retired last year. He retired tight end for the Cowboys. He was a Pro Bowl any retired. He's like, you know, I'm here not because natural abilities. And you know, but I I spent more time in the dirt I worked harder than all these people. I was like, bro, you're six six to forty like it was raining in big. That's like, yeah. Maybe there are other guys that also have that. But like NFL tight end was never in the cards for me as I gotta learn how to tell jokes. The only other option I would take work hard. I was what I would take. Yes. I think the people that are naturally gifted don't work hard are just bad humans. I don't like their their general existence. So anyways, all my shows are listed, Dustin, Nickerson dot com, and all my socials are at Dustin Nickerson, and then I also podcast making. It's been a guest on. And it's called don't make me come back. They're funny podcast about family with new episodes every Tuesday where we talked to funny people like yourselves about family stuff. So it's good one. It was really funny. I there is a bit in there where my sister said something pretty mean to me in John set me of like a video of you guys like, repeating repeat it John did. That's so hurtful for my life. But so funny when it's about something else. It was very funny. And it was a fun episode between the two of you. I like the contrast of podcast level of professionalism. And then I like my podcast. It's going very well. And I like it. But because I'm very nomadic. It's very Noman loss. We're gonna release an episode that came out like this week's episode in December is one that was recorded in a green room after a show and the intro was recorded in my producers car on his lunch breaks. I come into a studio like this. This is really nice super cool though. I wish I could do that. Sometimes it's nice to be nomadic. Yeah. I don't think I've ever been nomadic before. I mean, my entire childhood was, but I feel like now that's why you're not now. Just wanna stink stay in the same place have the same friends next year. Oh, got sad. Yeah. That was really sad moving was really hard. But I'm so used to it now that like I love change. But I also hate at the same time a three story home. You can just do the change. I needed a little switch up. I'm gonna go upstairs. Never leave. You just change it like, they're different seasons. This my winter floor. A winter going to do it amazing. Yes. If you're listening, are you are you lifting and listening people work out and listen to someone's gonna swallow right now. Oh nice.

"If not millions of Jesse Nickerson's who are having these same relationships and experiences and like that's horrifying. And I don't know. Anyway, the next day. Emmanuel I am then Sarah. We all had this whole conversation about it. We went on. Oh my God. All three of us went down. It was it was awful horrible. We all just were like, oh, God Sarah was dealing with all the juvenile stuff at the time. So she was just doing one interview after another that was like breaking her and yet was a dark movement. It was a dark moment. But I didn't know where to land. If I'm hearing you quickly. It's the thing that freak you out on the train was that you were. Doing this work that was supposed to shed light on a thing that people are not familiar with. And instead what they were responding to was kind of like holy shit moments in the story because that's what they were used to kind of the same way you respond to like a crazy plot twist. An right, right. Exactly. I think this thing is hard. This question is hard like the entertainment versus journalism in my theory. Is that is that in that just that it's new the communiqu is an interesting example, like people just aren't quite use to music in journalism, isn't it super intimate as well? I think the difference between reading somebody's quotes and hearing somebody talk at length, I think is very very different. There's all these moves that get made in magazines stories, which have just come to be accepted because people have been writing stories in the style fifty years that I feel like when people hear those moves get made. And I do think it's mostly about recency it kitchen there somewhere of these other factors to like ads. Right. I feel like it's not like you don't have an advocating down the side column of New Yorker story. Totally. I think people are used to it. Right. But this. Also, this intimacy thing which is like you can choose what the heavier iced over to that ad. But I think that actual thing with cereal, and I wonder if this is true is is mostly just that so many people listened. Yeah. Like, so many people hadn't listened. Then the critique of this was entertaining wouldn't quite play. Don't. So interesting that no one listened. Criticism like that found this huge audience and this way, like kind of does feel to kind of like inextricably linked with the result. Yeah. No. I agree. I agree. I totally agree. And I agree with you about the new thing to and it's something that I actually have always wished sometimes I feel like it should be celebrated more not to be padding ourselves on our backs. But like we are making something new in the podcast. These like definitely I feel like in the long form narrative podcasts were making something new and probably even in the talk show podcast as well. I don't listen to those ones as much I'm more along form narrative girl, but I do feel like. It's exciting. Like who seen a breakthrough in narrative journalism like this like that we've done with podcasting in the last five years? It's really exciting to watch what people are doing. So I feel I feel like yeah. And then there's gonna be ways that you're learning that along the way that doesn't seem that surprising to me that we might mess up. You know, what I mean or do something where I wouldn't do it that way the same way again or like, I honestly wouldn't do a season one story again. I wouldn't do something like that. I I mean one is that I forgot. I didn't quite realize how much people really love murder story. You know? Underestimated the appetite. Probably that kind of thing every wouldn't do again. One of the incredible stats that we see on law form on the website is guess was two years ago. We did like the most click stories of the year and every single one had murder or sex in the title for the top store which had murder answer. Title. It's pretty it's like. I know I feel like such a dummy during like I didn't see this coming..
