E. Shorty stock on it and it's about the extent of what I've done in firearms guns you know besides asked the crew on here what they wanted in the show notes fun but no one else can shoot it when I go to versus shoot because it's too short so I ordered the Brownell M16 eight one stock so I got that in the mail but I forgot that you know but you never know with our Buddy Ryan over there so just go joined the patch of the month club it's easier that way checkout gun streamer if you want to essay So of course I had spare lower leg around so now it is a pistol or will be and literally a few minutes ago while I was fighting my computer we're supposed to use hates us as chat configure how to work during things so snowy it's garbage it is so the three people who normally watch us they're going to have a or upper in somebody's sending me a barrel for review so I will yeah I should have that thing put together hope I'm hoping next week but don't quote me on it so that's work a brown nells upper came that I had ordered so I have something to stick on it it's a stripped just fire radio DOT TV slash Amazon and now I guess not that this is a live show but we can let rob read the disclaimer single action army style these are made in Italy but they're like not even on their website yet it was just a press release so but here and the model are in it appears that I think all of them are forty five long Colt the US Marshall also has them video firearms content they probably have some other stuff on there too but might as well check it out and if you're shopping Amazon please used the firearms radio affiliate Lincoln as a link to the show notes in it they'll probably run around six seven hundred street value probably but they are they have the US marshal the gunfire. I'm trying to live up to the stereotype type guys follow me or Zane or any of us on facebook yes yeah so I'll get into the announcements now are banned sponsor Patriot Pasco as you could probably guess I didn't see any new patches for preorder original US Marshall One You know they're they're nice looking guns I will say that I think they also do not run a transfer bar safety who we all know and original finish meaning it is kind of case hardened you know Kinda sorta it also has a forty four and three quarter inch barrel and Magnum it's black checkered grip for into quarter barrel blue body and brass like trigger guard accents basically these the tags thing in a newspaper article about a Florida woman had alligator and a pulse when police will over yeah first this month passed to the month is the best catch of the day I do not know what next month's is unless it was the one he sent me a preview of but I think that's Paraly- Wean forty-five ACP drop in cylinder it has blue finish wood grips four and three quarter inch barrel you know they tried to make it pretty true to the old West model or now hold on The gunfighter model it is available in two calibers forty five long cold three fifty seven because of that but there is that model let's see what's the next model the model are I don't know what it stands for it says it's more of a tribute to the Duke Taylor was over it was bad but it was really a cool the PCC three gun I mean a three piece even are they make a bunch of different models of the typical single action army replicas from what I haven't heard anything bad about him so it is forty five long Colt only at this time I guess which you know that's kind of a good and then you know there is the what was it the I guess they do a pretty good job of their replicant they are imported your cowboy action shooter you probably know all about them but I am not we're talking about a gunfighter models a little six gun action tonight couple Pieta USA I guess it is Introduced three new models shocked face I figured you on a date with her tender can you need to look Frigate County Jail Roster it's on that you're right yeah and there's a mathematics I rearranged some gear outside the waistband and a frigging drop leg or cobbler holster and actually stopped a robbery in Richmond Virginia in Richmond Virginia at one of the supermarkets see the bullet just kinda and it doesn't really even look like it's going fat but yeah so that's two this is just fun gun stuff that was a couple months ago but she just got sense of yeah we heard all of that was that was not too far from the access about an hour hold on look at my shocked face robbed and he smoked do what forty five long Colt Hey I've seen expendable literally good undershoot especially with those light load I mean a lot of fun yeah there are a lot of fun I mean you know it's kind of like people our age older you know you probably at least doesn't it is what it is awesome I'll Tony's going no and I mean okay the reason I say Thursday's because that's the next diversity shoe awesome now I do know of one guy who actually in modern times carried a single action revolver like these cowboy guns as his daily carry the any of theirs and so basically you do not want to load six in them because you can you want to load one skip one and then load the other four also I moved holsters belts and clips I saw a move into the safari land the the Q. L. S. system they're quick attached she can westerns I haven't seen too many of them but but I I like some of the newer West like tombstones one of my favorite writers I love that see it's funny because it's the views and opinions expressed in this podcast or those at the individual co-hosting not reflect the official policy or position the firearms radio network and or their employers this I get all kinds of things done to it so when it goes off they can use those little baby loads that they use so they can get if you don't know yeah they see these are piano this to companies you burke's and he had both of my out of Italy and both of them do replicas you birdies is I don't even know if we'd be able to save show anymore we always talk about firing Felicia well yeah starting to wonder about that in the holster from here to there and I've been locked tightened things and checking so that's kind of pain but and it'd be done yeah I understand guns there's just a little bit of difference between them do cowboy action you take these things out now of course all these guys get worked they all take it to a gunsmith and get work done get the trigger industrious leader no like I said I've been busy I actually busy I have a copy of a deal sick relatives so let's see Ooh vice versa you can get some good prices on some of the stuff already tricked out just say you know it well now will we will get into everybody's favorite movies like three ten to Yuma one with Mel Gibson in what Maverick yeah you know number the old Westerns Zane might not but I remember him because I was there I mean about the old I I think the more expensive I think you're right all right because I have the piazza black powder over but both of them were quality experiments graduated high schooler Jesus God what what Springfield did here was they took their is not legal advice nor show to be considered a such your discretion is advised this this is especially true on live shows we don't have any Houston I do we do and they helped us out as a grassroots organization and then stuffed changed and they stopped doing all right just like you know around the same time period one a. with the woodstock or their so calm version with a sixteen inch barrel and basically put it in the woodstock to make what appears to be a man sweetheart deal would anti-gun politicians all right I'm being one hundred percent honest to springfield armory donated lots of gear toomey for two years rifle we put it here the Springfield armory m one a tanker put this in here I do not like spring fill armory because of the dirt vip they did twenty sixteen when they tried to cut out every F NFL in the state of Illinois News really soft shooting loads and cowboy action shooting for the most part we call him you know I I've heard them called bunny fire loads and ages different we call the old westerns those John Wayne and Clint Eastwood Spaghetti Westerns Watch when they were only three channels on television they used to come on a Sunday so nash probably take care of that for probably terrible okay does anybody else want to know if Florida Man Canal because you know it's not any reason that normal people all of a sudden grassroots second amendment stuff was out for them so I have issue would springfield armory but I also have this you would this tanker model the reasons night Kazini Fed tanker model like the grand version that they used in the tank okay let me throw let me throw this up okay go ahead nobody knows what it is okay it is ms RPM nineteen eighty-seven okay. I think that was the year that Zane might have been boring now that was paid using a fake legacy they're acting as if this rifle actually existed and was issue even that's a lie so it's them putting wood furniture on there one is the Scout Scout shot great this tanker Garand never exist it was a prototype done in one thousand nine hundred forty five so not only is it a company this is a lot of reasons but here's one problem with Springfield armory they continually try to act as if they're the legacy company they're still the Springfield armory that did government they were just really front heavy they put a bunch of stuff on it and it still shot fireballs but it did look fun but really they're better rifle out of the two shorter this is competition guns people trade up trait in all the time so you can go on some forums and somebody wants to get out of one caliber an into another thirty to forty five basically I am for Tony's reason of what they did in Illinois for the politics is why I personally don't care for them recent taxes and then that company went on bought it from them so I think it was the eighties they moved to Illinois under that family and that's what I was thinking so but you know yeah and they literally I mean if you're standing off to the side you can do this like forty-five ac any one of these bullets are going so slow it's like you can do it and it was just they bought a name I in Texas and then Illinois all right so there is no legacy to their so calm sixteen looks cooling video games about Springfield and that's their history no I mean when did they re by the name in the early eighties or something the first full company about the name was in a seven but that's just I don't know I like the way they shoot now of course if you want something more modern that's really better rifle you can get an error am I incorrect in thinking that you're not supposed to shoot three hundred seventy six to fifty one I'm I'm under that impression also backwards from the Oh that but I don't know for sure now I'm I'm a little different I kinda do like the m one a platform not in a sixteen inch What a sixteen inch in fourteen clone accepted semiautomatic and out of all the companies Fulton Armory James River on sorry and Springfield armory springfield is the cheapest one that uses the crappiest part their m one a so calm was a bad idea would all that pick rail work they are not they are this is not the springfield armory that built the good stuff this incarnation of it and they can conversion thing which is more accurate you get more aftermarket support all these things now like Tony saying these are the less expensive of they were importing those they actually for the price were on par with like Springfield which I'm the best yeah they were the best value right and yeah I like the rifle and it's mostly romanticized from again childhood military that whole thing now my biggest problem is their their quality control they just they have crap quality control and not only that I don't like 'em wise anyway I liked the economics work okay for me I kind of like them I like the way they shoot but besides that this is like Tony said the one that does that it is still the three companies that make as and I have seen now I will take that back every once in a while you can find some of the Rinco China us and one kind of fuzzy but let's talk about that so we've had these and that was our thing Zan's so calm and selling it for a ton more money over eight hundred dollars let's remember back two thousand to two thousand three MAG here's the deal only on this one this is their supposedly see QB model they have better sights on on the eighteen inch and of course to twenty two pointing now we're talking about just buying fun and this is one I don't cost lack I mean they they cost Glock money here's the thing the art of the dynamic rifle the so come with awesome and that DVD just say not all that's the only nice thing I had to say of an old western is like minded meanwhile this some dude listening going yeah you know android shooting it friend Orlando had one he bought them to diversity shoots eighteen inches awesome because it's a great compromise between the twenty two inch barrel you get it down one show strives to bring you what you need here they don't care about your feelings they don't eighteen it's easy for even a small statue person to handle and shoot but once you get down to sixteen you got the really thick front sight you've got the cop on the front this is three o eight seven six hundred fifty one you know it's basically got their same carbon steel barrel they put it does have a tritium insert in the front post go ahead finish your whatever that's pretty much I wasn't going to say much more about it except all okay go ahead let me go ahead and stay this have a look at how thick the front site blade is it's an eighth of an inch thick the sides on my glock are thinner than that actor style factor though because this was not like ever a real it's not a replica of anything that was a real thing it's just it's it's six two to three thing right yeah I think they they may I think they're barrels are mark freely what's up I've got a sixteen so calm to in my safe if anybody wants one I'll sell it I put that evil on me talking about favorite no no hold on hold on let's go ahead and get it out yeah I just don't find your economics good on them I've just the three away in an actually eight they say there's a seven hundred fifty one in parentheses three await but owner m one a big deal but it's not exactly it's it's not a replica it's not what it is that the only thing for fire me hey this this is a lot of these guns are a lot of fun men and the Price Hey look that's in the back of the safe see apart with I guess I guess my thing is like who is four okay so go in there as long as you can aim and shoot the darn thing well why not and they are they are really fun not how do you say because how short it is in the front end is not the same rifle well you can eight and three quarters pounds it's not like it's a lightweight rifle again they made these these m. one tanker Iran's as an experimental rifle at the end of the Second World War never got me but the image was just something a lot of people including myself fell in love with like Oh that is so cool that'd be so handed so great a thirty six inch long three away and block rail mounts on the hand guard QC Sling Mount Points option of seven around magazine capacity does it Cromwell and that's where you're added price comes in but at least I am going to say one thing let's see what does it come with it has perspex on their website and of course do you think it says no no it doesn't even say how many it holds besides the sound options and seventy so who is doing seek ub with an iron cited woodstock long heavy as three await like what are we doing got rid of that stupid kick Rayle at least it would be lighter you know what I mean in ten years and lighter of course means we are gas move onto something Zane wants to spend nine thousand nine hundred dollars on and that is the langdon tactical lt thirteen this was used in Iraq for special duty purposes and people fell in love with it because of course it was all the pitchers and so they came up with a C.. QB version and hey is it an eighteen inch barrel yes okay well it should be an eighteen inch barrel yeah I mean for because you know I'm looking at there oh one with an MS RPM fifteen ninety nine to eighteen seventy nine depending on what it is how tactical odeon loving their website because it doesn't tell me anything that I don't know but I want to say at least when they make an overpriced shotgun they at least use a semi auto unlike these the people like what's up the C-cuban with this enhanced magazines follower the options are an Eratosthenes sidesaddle and mount for Round magazine capacity. I mean that's all we know I'm assuming it'll shoot like two and three quarter three and shells but you know I love I'm pulling it other people we've talked about that for sixteen hundred bucks yeah right so I do have to give Langton anybody who wants it and I'm cool with it but that's a lot of money I mean Bill Nye nineteen hundred dollars it's you're not getting nineteen hundred dollars worth of rifle they know it was it was the Qb version that's what it's called the C. Qb here's what happened here's what was happening doing Iraq there were some the hand guard it does have an air industry stock adapter MAG pull stock it runs a Nordic components Meg tube extension northern components ed thirteen o one shotgun that they have worked over and made look really really cool let's see runs a full Zubkov nine pounds but it's like so I thought it was a bad idea and then they did to see QB version which we're still horrible and now they finally get it right and Jack the price up not to drop nine thousand nine hundred dollars begun it's going to be the next thing we're talking and we're really bothers me about it is this it has this gear on it and truthfully if we're not worried about the whole MAG pulping I can do it for a thousand dollars from biotech and it still has get this results quicker tire yourself out okay now now that we've at least that what if you want to get the nostalgia you gotta get the grand where you hit the last round and eat that Ping checks here here's the thing this is when when they first came out with the so-called because I'm one of those who were never on the whole picketing quadrille thing so when they came out with the sixteen and so calm I'm like if the AH simplify credit for that at least it's a semiautomatic gun put here's the thing it's a eight hundred dollar to nine hundred dollars uh-huh seventy six to fifty one short barreled rifles all right like eleven twelve inch barrels I still remember the NFL matter of fact Grantham chess reviewed one yes you're right nobody's we're running at sea qb this is as you really need to hit somebody with a three away you hit somebody just fine with a five five six he kind of doesn't bring anything to table that you yourself can't do by adding assessories yeah I I I mean Brenna themselves makes a nice shotgun so like or is made where they're where they're trigger came from so pretty much I'm like this is another overprice gun with a name on it that France and you don't have to worry about it because you'll get it with everything on it but I've yet to meet

He is the golf coach at jackson stayed in possibly saw the report on. Espn the lines. The feature on the pga tour in which it was revealed that there is only one african american on the tour and of course that's tiger woods whereas back in nine hundred seventy six. There was many as twelve blacks on the tour. Eddie why do you think that blacks have not advanced in terms of off as much as they might have and other sports where you know and you can point to several reasons At the biggest reason is that we As a race of people have not taken golf as a sport that we want our kids to excel in and taking the time to introduce from an early age and get them the fundamentals that would allow them to progress normally in the game of golf to become all they could be. You know what surprises me about. That eddie is that back in one thousand nine hundred seventy six. When we had people. Like calvin peete elder charlie sifford. Jim thorpe all african americans. You would have thought where this country was back then. There would be even less an opportunity for blacks to be able to play the sport. Why was it more prevalent that they played it back then than they are. Now the main reason is because they had a caddy program back then all great guy after american gothic. Yes name program work. They were gone to god course several times a week. Then exposed to the game later. The law put game and kind of mimic the people they were working for. How about yourself. What was it that got you involved with. Gov my mother and the cafeteria. We have to local consequence on the weekends and every saturday and sunday. I went to the doctor with her. It came that baby sitter at cannon at age ten and didn't stop get integrated into what was your first impression of the sport. I think what was your first impression of the sport. But i've seen it First time i've actually played the game both. Listen i've seen it. I thought that this this is. This is crazy these guys cover about cute hundred grape fascination in the hundred and that's the first time i went out and play for eighteen played eighty five and then our convinced more than what i saw i mentioned about calvin peete lee elder charlie sifford and others like that. How did they approach playing the game. Well you know they said it was an honour play in that meant that you know they in a game that was basically viewed as an all white game they of given a chance to play add and even better the white counterpart and they take a challenge to prove that fact every time they played. I find it interesting. That joe day. The first commissioner of the professional golfers association tour. He forecast the number of black golf pros would enter a long term decline in this. Was this quote. He said by the turn of the century. There may not be one black playing the tour. What do you think you indicated to him that there was going to be a decline well balanced no way young black to be introduced to the game With the invention of the gop car there were no need for canada's most of the great black day early days chained through that rink so black had no reason to go to the to the golf course did not develop an understanding and appreciation of the game and to this day there are black. Teaching academy is in. The united states are in the work for then. There are no black teaching pros that are ranked in the top one thousand united states. So you know. There is a direct correlation to access and education to the reason why they're not anymore. Black golf is playing at the highest level than they are today and i would applaud him on his fourth type. Because you know twelve years ago. We had a number of black playing on the senior to enter. Pda and today. We have no no black on the nationwide tour. No black on the air. Pj to no black on the future. Too i mean it's just you know he's like no did they. Just simply give oppa. Was it too hard. Did they not see the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. What why do you think that is that. We don't have them on the tours. I think the rest of the world past us back. I think that the the faren catherine and their developmental their early development for their a much better job than we are minority golfer You look at the tour now. And they're every country in the world is represented at the has level and black are no country. Any there's another aspect of this as well. And i just think society in general especially young society. Meaning the kids. They are always looking at something. Like what have you done for me lately and when you take a look at a basketball where you can jump after one year of college into the nba and make millions when you look at baseball football right out of college and into the national football league and make millions as well. Golf is one of those time tested. Sports and i'm just wondering whether that turns off a lot of minorities well again. It goes back to accessibility at an early age Regardless of where you go in the world a basketball goal is going to be tennessee and regardless of where you go football play on the hundred yard field you can take a ten foot pole. Put a basket on it and you can teach yourself out of shoot basketball and if you if you run faster jump eu bigger than the next guy you got a real good chance of making it in the nfl. That's not the case in guy. You need early instructions. You need consistent. Instruction unique correct instruction a lot of people have criticized tiger woods for being a political and also maybe not doing more for fostering Minorities particularly african americans in the sport. Is that criticism justified. Well i really don't think that it's it's justified. It may be warranted an individual view of what he should or shouldn't do but none of us have the right to dictate what a man is supposed to do. That's left to. Here's conscious and how he feels about what his legacy will be. I mean if he feels that he's doing enough then that's good for him The fact will. I mean history will tell twenty years from now when he is no longer playing. Did he make the sport a better sport by what he did for himself. Did he make the sport a better sport and more accessible in what he did for. What would you like to see him do if anything in order to help the african american player maybe advance on in this sport. Well i would like to see them. Just call a form of all the minority Shakers and movers in the game of golf and see what we can come up with that will be accepted by the masses that will go a long way and developing young minority. Play us. where if they're good enough it will have an opportunity to play on the two. There have always been barriers as you know for minorities especially in areas of employment and maybe even sports to some degree. We certainly know. Jackie robinson had to go through. And i'm just wondering when you take a look at the african american golfer who may wanna play professionally. Do they have barriers. Besides just having the talent to be able to play at that level you know various. I don't think they have better. They have speed that may slow him down and made the term as well. You take the tank hat in teaching academy you take jimmy teaching academy when you go down there and look and see who. They're teaching how to play the game and how to become better at it. You don't find anybody but you find min mini europeans many many asians many hispanic players at those academies. We don't have those are neither can. Most of our young people afford to go to though those are barrier various But the access at your local course if we had that. I'm pretty sure that teaching pros in the area would lend themselves to helping anybody who's willing to pay him on the game. Is the pga doing enough to foster the game with african americans. Well you know they instituted some programs. They've back i t and their mind for about eight years ago. We're doing everything for the growth of the game in the grow. Everybody within the game and twelve years after the tiger phenomenon. We have less african americans plan than ever before but back contrast we have more people women on the lpga poc and seeing than we do. Smith and joe. So i mean it's just you know you you have to wonder if the methodology is getting the results. They won't and by the looks of it with no blacks on any two major to you. Know they may wanna rethink what they what they're doing and take it in another direction. Any i wanna thank you for your perspective.

This is america sports talk show sports byline usa. Here's ron last segment eddie. Payton the coach at jackson state university joined us and now african american golfer. Tim o'neill joins us. Tim is one of the few african american pro golfers trying to make it on the pga tour and he was an all american at jackson state very very successful. They're in college. Winning sixteen college tournaments. Tim the battle for you to be able to get your pga tour car. Tell me a little bit about it. well you know turned pro and ninety eight and You know been going to school. The school you know only comes around once a year starts not tober the first date and It's it's been a battle. I've i've been Pretty close to getting. Pj to a car through the q-school You know missing twice in In two thousand one stroke and then same thing happening in two thousand and four where i missed by one shot getting fatter from the pga tour. So i've definitely had some heartbreaks in there and you know i'm still battling right now trying to You know just trying to make my way avila the nationwide to plan with the very strong tour. And you know it's tough because everyone's very very good so you really have to You really have to be on your game all the time especially on the nationwide tour because the guy. That's so good out there and it's just a very good tour because you've got you've seen you know players that come up nationwide tour If you can prove yourself out there you're definitely ready for the pga tour. Aside from the talent challenges an african american trying to play on the pga tour. And get your card. What are the challenges. Do you face that. Maybe other golfers don't face. That aren't african american. Well you know You know. I didn't grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth. Anything like that so you know when it came time for me to When i decided that i wanted to try to to play golf all living You know it wasn't like my parents. Had you know tons of money to where they could you know. Send me you know to the best pizza in the world and you know and have the best golf courses to play on. You know. i'd have any of that but If if a challenge as far as you know african american if you if you don't have you know a sponsor to to help you out as far as being able to to To four to play the mini tour so to speak like the hooters tour. The tarheel tour or whatever if you don't have sponsorship to able play that you know if if virtually impossible to be able to to To play to get ready for the pga tour. What is it that being able to play on those tours and having that sponsorship backing actually helps you. Do that would improve your your technique and your capabilities. That will allow you to get your card though. I'm trying to understand what the difference is. Just the repetitive. Mr playing in a competitive environment. Yes exactly You know you know there. There's about three or four really solid mentors. Then you and you're playing tournaments. You know pretty much every week You're you're traveling a little bit and you know and you play full around tournaments with a cut and what that does is it gets you in and game modes tournament mode. You know to get ready. Just say you went to go. Qualify for the for the q-school which only comes once a year. So you know mostly starting in you know late february or march. You know those tours going on until the q-school starts so it it gave you a chance to Better your game. You know playing good competition and get ready for the q-school because the q-school itself is is roughly about five thousand dollars. So you know when you get to the when you wanna go to q-school school you have to really be mentally and physically for prepared to play. You don't want to go in there and not playing in any tournaments and so you wanna be able to play in some tournaments made some money gone your confidence up whatever it may be no to get ready for the school and then also you have monday qualifying where you can try to monday. Qualify for pga tour nationwide tour event. And you know it costs money to do that. Back in the mid seventy s as you know as many as twelve african american golfers played on the pro golf tour and that was not a particularly open time in our society we had moved along yes but not like a probably we are today and i was talking to eddie payton about that and he says that one of the things he lamented was that we don't have caddies out there now. We're african americans can connect to the game like they used to and he thought that that was the reason a largely that african americans more african americans were playing the game back then than we are. Today what's your view at a of it as a contemporary african american playing the game. Oh yeah you know you know thirty forty years ago that that i think that was definitely the case. As far as african americans being exposed to the game and being around the game being able to go out and play I mean since the golf car you know has come along You don't really see. A lot of african americans playing Like catty and stuff like that You know the people saying since tiger woods won two masters and and and ninety seven and There will be a lot more african-americans playing golf. Yes that's true. There are more afterwards playing golf but as far as getting to that level. I think that that is the. That's the the million dollar question. I guess because Things have changed since the guys you know there was twelve guys on the pga tour and in seventy six. I mean it is so expensive now to be able to afford You know to play. I mean if you don't if like a mini tour. I it's gonna cost you a minimum of about you. Know sixty seventy thousand dollars just to play a full year. You know You probably can get away with it about fifty thousand. But i mean it's very expensive and I think that that's really the main issue. I think as far as guys having access to be able to get out and play. I know you've said the tiger has not reached out to you. Should he be reaching out to you and other african americans to help them progress and get to the pro level on on the golf tour while you know. That's that's stuff. That's a question to where Me personally you know. I know tiger That he considers himself a mixture of races and for him to reach out to me on the nationwide tour. Even though when i was out there i've been out there for years and for him to out to me being the only african american on the nationwide tour You know i think that you know. He doesn't really consider himself an african american. I don't i don't think So i didn't really expect him to really reach out to me It would have been nice if he would have. You know i love to talk to them but You know. I've been asked that question. A lot of people are shocked by that that he hasn't reached out to me. But you stuff like that. Bother me because you know me personally. You know he has. He has big things to do. And i mean to him for him to reach out to me I i just think that you know. He doesn't think that's important and I don't really think that's important for him to reach out to me. But i do think that he probably could do a little more as far as Making yourself available. I think one about the pga tour. Because that's where. I would point the finger of blame. I really think that the pga tour could do more to help minority golfers to play on the tour. You know they do. Have the i team program which was when it was first when i brought about. I think it was geared toward intercity kids but but now that's not the case. I don't know if that's really the pga towards fall I just think there's just a lack of interest from the african american community. Because i've done i've helped out with p. programs and and You know there's very few African american that. I've seen and i've i've done them in various places so i i don't i don't i don't know if the tj tour could really do more. I mean pretty sure. They probably could what they could do. I don't know but i think that I think it would be nice if if i was to get onto. Pga tour Think that maybe an african american. But i would be able to help out in that department. We only got sixty seconds left How much longer will you chase your dream. I don't know that's that's really hard to say Maybe a few more years. It just depends how things go find a sponsor. I'm currently looking for a sponsor right now which is very tough especially with the economy being the way it is so it's I don't know it's just. It's hard to say right now. Is there anything else that can be done in your mind to help you and other african american golfers and that's a good question. I i don't really know right now. What would you like to see done to help you. well not not so much me but you know. I think that there's something that can be put in place to help african americans that want to pursue dream Can give them a chance to play the mini tour or something like that. You know something like that would would be would be great. I think i just get access to be able to. Have you know the best teachers at these. These exclusive academies and stuff. I think that would be stopping to look into tim. I want to thank you very much for joining us at talking about this issue. Your coach eddie. Payton jackson state was with us a little bit earlier and he gave us a fine perspective as well. Good luck to you tim. Thank you very much right tim. O'neill again african american golfer. He has been playing out there trying to get his tour card is played on the nationwide tour and also still struggling. He's looking for sponsorship. He earned just twelve thousand dollars last year. After coming out of jackson state as an all american where he won. Sixteen college tournaments. We'll take a break as we continue across the country and around the world.

Usa here's ron bar. I came across a very interesting article about mark wetzel now. Most of you probably don't know mark wetzel is and i didn't know who he was until i read this article. But he is a baseball hitting coach. What's the big deal. you say. He is a blind baseball hitting coach. He's been legally blind for forty five years and mark has immersed himself in the study of the swing the last two decades and even one of baseball's greatest hitters hall of famer. Tony gwynn has taken the advice of the man known simply as the blind guy and he breaks down the swings of some fifty students from high school students to pros mark. the obvious. first question is what is it that got you interested in hitting especially with the handicap that you have well I tell you what when my son start playing ball my two daughters and my son i i want to get involved in the worst way and they told me if i wasn't wise if i got on the field and coach base and whatnot like that and I just felt that was something that i could get into and help you know Like i tell people. I certainly didn't want to catch her. You know because you don't want a couple of shots a day you know but anyway i i just really got into that and i could stand behind the backstop one in anybody's way wasn't gonna hit the ball and I just One thing led to another. And i started asking questions and call him coaches on the phone and go in highschool practices. He's got every video hands on and just start going from there and I think that early beginning Once we got started once my boy started hitting other kids on the team started following and other teams. Start coming over. You know what's going on over here. Guys scored twenty runs bat an eye and so it started from there. I mean other teams started coming another father start coming and i look back at it and When we get the kind of kids is not hitting you know we don't get four hundred hitters. It comes to the door here. They arrive here. Because i can't hit and a lot of them are actually twelve years old and not really gifted athlete so Through trial and error. And we've done it all wrong. Believe me We've learned how to maximize every ounce of strength and talent in that little body you know and then you combine it with the knowledge of people like tony gwynn and mervyn redmond giving me and then you combine it together and we feel we have a product. There is a difference of course between being totally blind and legally blind explained. everybody would visit. You have well. I have macular degeneration of the retina which started hitting me at about age. Eleven italy driving around late fifties but it started childhood onset late Early teams to me. So you lose all your center vision My wife is embarrassed before by walking up to me. And i didn't know who she was and You know i can't see faces. I cannot read a headline in the newspaper. Or anything like that But i have this perfume. Vision leftover and So i see kind of a negative if you will outline of the body and i've learned through millions of swings. God maybe left me a bit of a gift. There to kind of connect the dots. I can look at one part of the body on a hitter and tell you what the rest of the body's doing and and about getting ready to mark the other thing that i find fascinating. I have other friends of mine that are disabled in one form or another and a lot of the soldiers that have been over in iraq and afghanistan for my visits over there and also in the military hospitals. And i've always found that they have developed other senses. And i'm just wondering whether with your blindness you've developed senses. That might be able to help you. The decided person might not have well. I think my smell is definitely improved. Mike hearing you rely more. You're hearing so. I think i hear I just kind of hearing more than other people. Although i've gotten older my hearing started to wane a little believe it or not. But yeah i i definitely think so and like i say that peripheral vision. I think you learn to look things in a different manner Like they say that all great point guards in running backs at peripheral vision great peripheral vision. And i think you see things in a different light than other folks. I think i almost see where the body's gonna move before it goes there. I just connect the dots with everything with southbound. When you hear somebody swing a bat. Hit a ball. Can you tell what that swing was by the sound of the ball on the bat. I would think you could. Oh yeah yeah you can A lot of Baseball people can hear barrel gets out front and squares up that ballers a beautiful sound and you kinda here. That's when it got jammed to get it down on the dog but in my cage my labrador i call it. I can turn my back and i. I know where the ball's went. And leslie i swing. Did you know when we talk about. Somebody like tony. Gwynn who is obviously a hall of fame hitter or professional hitter. What is it that you try to do to help them with hitting as compared to the high school player of the young college player. You know it's it's amazing I'm now teaching twelve year olds. What you teach pro. It's amazing what they can accept I found it's easier to teach it You know at a younger age. And it is the waste like it all kinds of bad habits embedded And swing we teach. And if you guys like tony and the great ones they're swing is so simple it's hard. It's very quiet. They're trying to send her the ball. That's what bonds did. They sent her the ball. They catch it on a barrel of the bat. And i don't wanna scare that round bad off that round ball so we've got we've got twelve year olds doing drills that we've just invented for the pros believe it or not you go by the adage. Kiss all even believe it. You better believe it. I mean there's some moves that we have to you know when it would hit down and your hands get back. There's some things that have to be done or everything's going to hell but once you get there i mean we use the term with all of them. Put the last one on your hit. Hit me a home run. But i don't want you to feel that water. that's quiet we want now when i say. Kiss just to explain to those might saying what the heck is ron talking about with mark. Keep simple stupid simple and you know what mark tony said something. Because we've had long conversations on the show about hitting. And i know how close he was to ted williams and i was a young sportscaster one of the first people i met in washington. Dc when i was young was ted williams and we had long conversations about fishing and about hitting and tony said to me the thing that he learned more than anything else is to go with what they gave you and what he means by that. Is that There are so many hitters in the professional ranks. Especially and i'm sure kids probably try to do the same thing as if the balls on the outside of the plate. Don't try to pull. It tried to go the other way with the ball. Rod karoo told me the same thing The hall of fame full of them guys. You know everybody now is Open your hips and pull the ball with statistics. Say i mean. This is not tony's opinion nor mine Statistics say that seventy five to eighty percent of the balls are gonna be middleton outside. That's just that's just numbers. Let alone good pitchers gonna keep it out there any so i look at it. You'd better be hitting seven hundred ten balls middle tops field and like i said the hall of fame full of those guys have figured that out mark wetzel has joined us on sports. Byline is blind baseball hitting coach. Who has worked with kids as well as a pro players. Including like tony gwynn marco one of the things that i also wondered was that what is the biggest mistake that hitters make in. What is it that you try to correct. Is it mental. Or is it physical. Well they've got to learn to relax. And and the most most of your problems are created by over swing using too much of the body. And you can't see the ball 'cause you simply over swinging and you can't center the ball or catch the ball. You your simply over swing swing. So they've got to learn to relax. We start them at about. You know as long as they start here. We start preaching relaxing. This that's just part of your homework is learning all you have to learn to relax. Stay slow also the vision very important of course but how you set your body up. I would think. I know going down at spring training and watching very bonds one time even into his forties in the batting cage. The thing that struck me was how quickly he was able to get the bat through the through the hitting zone. Yeah well and see what moves ahead. I mean my six year old grandson just here and he told me what he's coach for center in practice last night about a big stride and what lose the head I i say the next just simply. Isn't that long body that moves ahead. You got of little game johnny. Don't move your head. Keep your heads to watch the ball. Well johnny can't because his back foot is jumping out of the box with stride. You see what. I'm saying or his hands right up position so i goes elbow then he shoulder then he's had so there again. It's the body moving that that disrupts the head. It's such a game quite. It's unbelievable one of the things that i always wondered about. mark level. Every team has a hitting coach. And i'm just wondering if you go from one team to another be traded to get cut sign on with another team. Whatever it might be. I would think especially if they happen to change hitting coaches. I would think that each coach's philosophy can really screw you up. We talked about the kiss. But i mean if you've got to coach the comes in charlie lau was known for his style and and certainly there there were who had great success with it but i would assume that there were probably some hitters that struggled under the charlie lau philosophy. I think most marketing coaches and this is what most of them do. They don't go to the hitter All got one right now. Just had that happen to him and the minor leagues. they don't go to the hitter. And say here. I want you to do this If that had starts struggle and says coach. I got a question here. My head's moving or i'm going to get my foot time. What do you think then. A smart hitting coach would go that way. Because if you start trying to change getting that kid's head right off the bat you you kinda creighton like you say total confusion and he's hitting why would you mess with him. You know what was it that tony gwynn boggs rod karoo any of those great hitters for average do on a consistent basis. They used their hands really call handed hitters and they stayed inside the ball. You know they didn't home run records but like i said they're all in the hall of fame. Let me let me move into another area about the home run hitters. You've got barry bonds who also hit for great average got the power hitters. Everybody always calls them free swingers where they strike out a lot but there were some you know. Certainly somebody like barry bonds that was able to hit home runs as well as hit for average. What is it that they do consistently. Barry bond had a beautiful swing. I've i've got pitchers broke down of bonds in my cage. Show the kids continuously. He had a beautiful swing and for he able to play long enough to where he had the mind of a wise old man and the body of young man. You know what. I mean But he had a beautiful swing and and he's a big strong man. How hard is it to work with kids. When they're using metal bats and the pros are eventually they'll move onto using the wooden bats. Is that hard to evaluate whether they're a good hitter or not because the middle vets give them a different dynamic. Well you know for somebody that knows hitting We we get a go up there and all young hitters will come in here doing it wrong. You're born to do it wrong. You're born to throw out your front shoulder and and pull the ball and get around the ball But but a good hitting guy that immediately and say wait a minute. This is not going to work against good pitching but that being said there are so many of them that go through there. You know high school and college careers with false courage. You know they're they're beaten up a i- mediocre pitch a media pitcher With aluminum bat and all of a sudden they gotta go to wouldn. They said well. How come i just doesn't work anymore. Well if somebody would have seen it and if they were to listen you know along the way that could have been a corrected. One of the things that i find fascinating. Is that in you being blind. You know your students swings but you don't know their faces no no no you know. And they walk up to the ballpark all the time or where the seniors the at the mall and they all know say hey coach it so and so and i really appreciate that but i can go to a game in in and watch my hitters and pretty much almost tell you who they are just by watching the swing or i can see a swing and say that's one of my guys who is mark. What satisfaction do you get at the end of the day. Oh my goodness To tell you the truth. I call start coming in. You know like my college guys in my high school guys. I'm my pro guys I had a great week. Or they'll call and you cry with them. I'm really struggling. I got one triple eight all right and really struggling right now. You know and i tried to talk through it So gratifying You coming where. I came from and got involved because my boy was struggling so forth. And i've been through it When i get that twelve year old in here that's just not very good and he's just a mess and pretty soon He starts to get it after week or three and Him or his dad call may disk beaming. He got a hit and he got his first double and Sometimes it just almost brings tears serious here. Is there so gratifying. watching them. The happiness in a bonding. They get out of this. You know one of the things. I find fascinating about baseball. The difference between getting three out of ten hits and two out of ten that amazing. I mean you're a superstar three out of ten done wherever you lately. That amazing if people would like to get more information. I know you have a website. Tell everybody about it mark.

This is america's sports talk show sports byline usa. Here's ron bar. I knew somebody would eventually come out with a book about nine brenner. and indeed. Peter golden bach. The award winning author has done so. Peter of course has written some of the greatest books in sports including five new york times bestsellers in his effort. Is this time called george. The poor little rich boy. Who built the yankee empire. Now you're lifelong yankee fan. I know that peter but what was it. That intrigued you beyond just the obvious about doing a story on george. Well i was actually there. I mean i was in nineteen. The fall of nineteen seventy two. I was researching my first book. Which was dynasty. Marty appel assistant pr guy for the yankees said that i could come and use their files and do research and yankee stadium. So i was there from the fall through about april of nineteen seventy-three Cbs sold the team. To michael burke to george steinbrenner in january of nineteen seventy-three. So i got to witness georgia's first several months which was very very interesting because of course he came in and you remember he said i'm not going to be involved. I'm gonna stay in cleveland. You know watching my ships and he also told all the employees all their jobs were safe which was very interesting because of about four or five months later everybody i knew with yankees was gone so i had firsthand. I was a first hand witness to the first Month of the reign of george steinbrenner and that was that was a large part of. What interesting is there. Anything that makes george more unique than say others in other sports from the fact that he owns a franchise in the largest market in this country. What he did with the franchise is what makes him unique. I mean there are. There are a few things that made him unique While he was running the yankees for thirty three years it was astounding. How many times you'd wake up in the morning and opened up the new york post or the new york daily news and you'd find george either on the front page on the front sports page. I mean most owners. Quite frankly you don't even you never hear from them not ever. I mean you never hear from from Wilpon and some of the owners. You don't even know who the heck they are. But george george wanted always to be out there. He loved to be to have publicity. He loved to have his face and his words in the press and so that was one of the things that made him different from so many other owners and the other thing was that You know he started with the cleveland. Pipers in nineteen sixty. It was a basketball team. And that's really where he got his first start sports and and what was interesting about that is he. Took an industrial league team and with his notion of wanting to have stars played for him and the notion of you know all we need to do is win or all we want to do is win. He almost took that team to the nba. He came about one hundred thousand dollars short of taking that piper team into the nba. He signed jerry lucas on a provisional contract and that was enough for the nba to ask him to come in and he was supposed to pay two hundred and fifty thousand dollars to join but he could really only raise one hundred fifty and so they didn't come in. And and one of the chapters in in is all about how steinbrenner dealt with both. His coach and players and the coach was john. Mcclendon who in nineteen sixty was the first black professional coach in sports mcclendon. Who was a lovely lovely man. I had the opportunity to interview him for two or three hours. Just you know highly highly respected by everybody. The problem george had was that george didn't know who the heck was he had been hired by the man who started the team and so when george took over his first thought was. I want to coach. Who's famous and so he really pestered this. Poor guy and You know until he finally quit. And then he hired bill russell and George displayed a lot of his george. 'isms as an owner. He would go out in the court and scream at the referee's he would come down and screaming mclennan for the way his team was playing He would scream with the players you know threatened to send them to other towns You know even as a thirty five year. Old george george. Let me interrupt you here and say right about this but if you wonder why george was always so angry. it probably had to do with domineering. Father did it. Not without a doubt without a doubt His dad was a real piece of work. I mean in addition to his father being very dictatorial. His father was a fabulous athlete. He was about six foot six. He would run for the. Us olympic team in nineteen twenty eight. Had he not declined and instead went and got married So george george. Had you know very large You know presence to sort of try to keep up with also you mentioned about the the problems in the way he ran that Cleveland pipers team. It was that chikan ary that really led to him. Not being able to get this. I love which was the cleveland. Indians was not that's absolutely true I interviewed one of his childhood friends who also became a director of the cleveland. Pipers and according to this fellow what happened was george The pipers got themselves in tremendous financial difficulty in georgia. Was really you know doing everything. He could to stay afloat including grabbing a check from his good friend. Jim stouffer and foraging for about twenty five grants. Now that's not a big deal. Because he had the money to you know to cover it eventually But vernon stouffer was really furious when he found out that george did that. And according to this fellow You know the unstated reason. When george came to buy the indians which was about a year or two just prior to his buying the yankees I mean he didn't want it to be the owner of the indians whole life. His his college freshman college roommate who i interviewed told me that george told him that. Freshman year I'm going to grow up. And i'm gonna own the cleveland indians. I mean he said that even back then and so it must have been a tremendous tremendous disappointment when vernon stouffer They had had an agreement. Where georgia was going to buy it. And then at the last minute stouffer backed out and sold it to somebody else. And it wasn't long after that that michael burke in the strangest part of this whole deal michael burke was a new yorker He loves new york. He loved the yankees. He ran the yankees from sixty five to seventy three. He had tons and tons of friends in new york and yet when it came time for him to buy the new york yankees He got in bed with with a guy from cleveland. Never checked out he never he. You know i interviewed burke before he passed away. I asked him that he you know ever check out george. The cleveland pipers in berks in. I didn't know anything about the guy and You know so. He buys the yankees with george steinbrenner and about three months later after steinbrenner basically be rated him for everything that he wanted to do. michael burke Step side. he took his money and went away. Eat seems to me. To george. Steinbrenner's attitude was always. There's a set of rules for everybody else. And then i've got my own rules and that's what i'm gonna live by and i think that's what got him in trouble. Certainly with major league baseball. Over the dave winfield Howie spira debacle and also about the watergate and watergate. Exactly those those two things i mean. George just didn't think anybody could control him or set a rule up for him. That's absolutely right. I mean that's why. I called the book. The poor little rich boy. Who built a yankee empire You'll see 'cause i i was able to interview back in. Nineteen eighty a lot of high school Classmates at culver academy and he was a guy who is always screwing up in this military school. And what these kids saw was his father. You know driving from home to culver To talk to the fella who ran the place to get george trouble and you know for the most part he did you know george never got in trouble when he did the things whereas other kids who did the same thing always got in trouble. You know when when it came time for him to enter the military Georgia's parents You know got together with fellow who who was in charge of placing you know the kids and instead of going career. Like all of his College buddies she ended up in lockport. An air force base in columbus ohio Couple hours from home at base. Where all those people went to europe. We have about a minute before we have to break the. Why has george been successful in spite of himself. Peter well he hires good people. He was successful under the under Game paul When he was suspended after watergate game paul put the team together and then after he was suspended for the how spirit thing Jean michel put the team together. That nineteen ninety six through two thousand team together So in a in a way the fortunate part of his running the yankees was that twice They made it so that he couldn't run the yankees so that his people could put together winning teams and those were the two runs that gave him the standing to be seen as a great owner.

Sports talk show sports byline usa peers. Ron dr peter. Gullit is with us and we're talking about his latest offering. George the poor little rich boy. Who built the yankee empire. And that georgia of course would be george steinbrenner thousand nine hundred seventy seven seventy eight. The eighties went back to back world series championships and then nothing until the latter stages of the nineteen ninety s. Why was that. What happened to that team and georgia's involvement in it. Well that was one of the things that i i really spell out fairly clearly because it's hard to believe that one person could do so many things that would negatively affect the team that he owned For instance one year Billy martin and his team would were doing very very well. They were right at top of the pack and georgian. Billy got in this row. George wanted billy to hold some kind of mandatory practice. And billy didn't do it and george found out and george ended up firing as a result. Firing billy's pitching coach fowler and as a result of that Billy became really upset and and started treating pitches rather poorly. I mean he was not a great handler of pitchers anyway and then the team fell apart and they lost and it was something that sort of thing that george do all the time he would he would upset his players an upset his managers upset general managers. And and you know you you will see over the years the things that he did not only that but he also saw himself You know he was a guy who believed that nobody could make decisions about anything including him the size of the toilet paper. I mean whatever. The decision was george. Had to make the decision including player personnel So so one. Year george calls. Who has lou pinella on the phone says lou. I've just one year the pennant. Mussa's what did you do. He says. I just signed steve trout. Well i mean pinella wanted floyd who was the the the other lefty for the chicago. White sox and georgia decided his own wisdom that trout would be just as good and of course as you probably can guess trout when i think one in six with about five and a happy are a and and the yankees again didn't didn't win it all and then those are. The sort of player moves that george would make that would make his general managers absolutely crazy. He had a very material relationship with billy martin. A why did they each need each other boy did they need each other Well billy billy. He wants he was fired. He was traded by the yankees in nineteen fifty seven after that incident at Cabana right And and ever since then all he wanted to do was come back to the yankees and all he wanted to be was the manager of the yankees which he finally got to be In the fall of nineteen seventy five. And so billy basically would would swallow any indignity in order to keep his job and they were just reached the point where he just couldn't swallow anymore. I mean that's that was the one time you you remember where he said talking about talking about George and reggie jackson you know one's a born liar and the other's convicted and he turns to the two newspaper guys and said make sure your print that and that's because at that point billie wanted the heck out of there i mean he was. He was losing his mind. Georgia was calling them at all hours of the day and night. Criticizing him telling him what to do. Things that billy knew where the wrong things to do and billy just couldn't manage under that pressure and and he cracked and he took that job five times and he was fired from that job five times you know. He's not in the hall of fame. I think because People seem to think that billy was something of a. You know maybe a fool when it comes to joe torry. I know in my conversations with joe. The thing that i think was the best for him in that relationship was that he tried to and primarily did stay even keeled and not let you know george warranty scream and yell fine go ahead and let him scream and yell but i think the fact that he was able to buffer his team as well as he did and also not take george seriously. All the time is something that really worked well for him in that relationship. Well it's gonna put you in the hall of fame. I mean In that pantheon of yankee managers Going back to joe to Go back even farther You know the lawyer who was who was there when when ruth gehrig where the was there. What's his name. I wasn't alive so i can't shoot. I should know who that is. I should know him like the back of the hand. Anyhow it was he. And then and then came. Joe mccarthy then casey stangl You know. And billy should be up there too and of course joe torry ranks right up there With them and he may have been the greatest of all because he was able to spend ten seasons under the aegis of you know george steinbrenner and the reason he could do. It was was that joe. Joe's father had been an abusive parents. He was a drinker and a very abusive guy. So joe is used to being treated that way and he knew how to handle george the same way he had learned how to handle his father and that that came into play you know during all the years he was there he knew never for instance to criticize george in front of a third person never to quote humiliate him. If you know what i mean and tori was very smart in the way he handled steinbrenner because whoever managed the yankees not only have to manage the players but he also had to manage. George steinbrenner somebody. That probably got the best of george. Steinbrenner was dave winfield. And i really you know. I'm familiar with some of the aspects of that story but tell everybody about the battle between winfield and steinbrenner. That was a ten year battle that occurred because in a way. Winfield humiliated steinbrenner. And he did it because he and his contract. His lawyers had put a Cost of living clause in there saying that if the you know the gnp or whatever it was goes up that winfield will get a raise and george didn't realize apparently what that meant when he read winfield's con contract and it was revealed in the new york times by mary chess and so george was terribly humiliated and he demanded from winfield that he'd take the clause out and winfield refused to do it and so for ten years. There was this battle. This hatred from georgia's from george to Dave winfield to the point where george paid forty thousand dollars to a guy who used to work for winfield to have that guy tell george what was wrong with the way winfield ra rant his foundation and of course the commissioner fay vincent found out about it and was horrified and ultimately steinbrenner was suspended from baseball for life Only serve two years but those were the two years when jean-michel at his minor league executives. Were able to put together such a fabulous team That included people like hor pasallah derek. Jeter bernie williams Mariano rivera and and andy pettitte. While george was running the yankees he would take all these young kids and trade them all the way but because he was away from the yankees those two years those five kids were able to come up and take their places on the yankees and turned it into a championship team. We've got a couple of minutes left here. Let's talk about the future hank. And how chips off the old block or what happened. No they're not chips off the old block. And i can tell you. They're not chips off the block. Because george had been In his right mind during that twenty. Two four loss At at yankee stadium he'd fired The manager he'd fire the pitching coach. He's gotten rid of half of those players Heads would have rolled right there. And then but jalan hacker not like or not like george at all It'll be very interesting to see. Just how successful. The yankees will be under those two sons. Well the one thing i wondered about is that as you know. They're going to be walking in their father's footsteps and in his shoes as well. And i'm just wondering how hard that's going to be and whether there will be sniping or or whether they'll be a power struggle within the organization. How how do you see the future laying itself out. well there. There has been a power struggle within the organization. Randy levine was the one who is struggling to you. Know he's the one who wanted to take over from the two brothers. The brothers finally put their foot down and put a stop to that You know when you own the team you have a lot more power than anybody else. I don't i hank and hal or sort of two sides of the same coin. Hangs it very blustery. Guy and hank is almost wordless How rather how doesn't talk. He has two very smart guys But also both of them were terribly Damaged you know by george steinbrenner by being the sons of george steinbrenner. Somebody told me they call them. Itchy twitchy because as kids Steinbrenner's criticisms were such that. It made them crazy Made them you know very neurotic and so for a long time. Neither of them wanted to be anywhere near steinbrenner when he was alive. They didn't want to be in his presence because all he would do is be rate them and treat them badly and so one ran the horse farm and the other ones just stayed away and it was only after george became non compass mattis that they would come back. You know rather than let somebody like. Randy levine running. We got about a minute left. What do you think george steinbrenner will be. He's gonna go to the hall of fame and no two ways about it. I mean he. He's the one who signed catfish hunter. Any signed Jackson and he spent money like crazy to make the yankees the best team that he possibly could make them At the same time he was doing everything he could to You know to to to hurt them as well. Be the very complicated character He was in the newspaper all the time. He became the face baseball in a way for for thirty years. So certainly You know you couldn't ignore him and You know everybody who's rooted for the yankees for the last thirty years certainly will remember him the good and bad. I was just gonna ask you thirty seconds. Well he'd be more admired or more loathe. It's hard to know What's so interesting though. Is that the strength of the feeling that goes in both directions eater. You happy with the way. The book came out very much. I'm very very pleased with it. I'm very proud of it.

This is america's sports talk show sports byline usa. Here's raw tom. Verduci johnson sports byline along joe. Torry they wrote the yankee years baseball writer for sports illustrated in dot com. And of course he has written another book with joe torry. Which was the book called chasing the dream. Tom the reaction that this book has gotten. it has been somewhat controversy. Are you surprised at that. Reaction while the reacted. Yes i understood why though and that was because you know the new york tabloids were writing stories about the book and the book wasn't even available yet and i think people were reacting to how the tabloids presented the book and there was certainly a mischaracterization misunderstanding. Of what it was all about Once people actually got to read the book as the book reviewed by all the major reviewers they began to understand that it really is a pretty big baseball book. Not just in terms of pages but in terms of the scope of the book. Certainly not a tell all book or anything along those lines. I it's a fascinating look. I believe that really a fascinating period of baseball history. Those twelve years for the yankees and for baseball not just for the yankees but how baseball changed around them. Explain the style in which you and joe rojas book and presented it well. I went back to the collaboration between tony larussa and buzzed business. For three nights in august they really enjoyed that book. I posted a great job through the perspective of tony larussa of understanding what the manager's job was like and i wanted to do sort the same thing with this dynamic history of the yankees and around baseball. So you know. The book is informed in large parts through joe. Tories is but it's also look in terms of my own reporting how the game changed. What made the yankees tick and all the changes in the game including The steroid era revenue sharing that how how that impacted competitive balance The rise of the red sox the way they became a real rival the new york yankees and certainly pass them as that team. The last five seven years and it was a collaboration in terms of joe. Right from my reporting tom. The other thing about it. That i thought when i saw the book was coming out and the name being the yankee years i thought to myself but just because of the nature of the yankees the market that it happens to be the ownership the personalities involved. There was absolutely no way that not somebody would not be upset with this thing. I mean is that a fair characterization. I think you're right You know everything is apple five new york. Anyway as you know and i think in telling the history of that era obviously it wasn't all champagne and ticker tape parade. I mean if you were going to talk about dynamic yankee teams that want and how they do it in the incredible team chemistry that they had to be very also take a look at those teams. That didn't win and the reasons why they didn't win whether they were internal reasons or external reasons with some of the things other clubs were doing around baseball. So if you're going to present history. As i said history is not always filled with good news and certainly as a balance there in terms of why the yankees won and why. They didn't win. Tom when you talk with joe. And he looked back and reflected on those twelve years as the managers of the yankees. What was his reflection. What was his characterization of those twelve years. I think it's important to remember that. When joe and i started on this project he was still the manager of the new york yankees. So you know. I i know some people have said well i guess he's. He's not happy about not being there anymore well. His perspective actually began as manager the yankees and even when he left. I think even joe torry would tell you at this point that there was a lot of relief involved in not coming back based on how tough his last couple of years were in new york and for him to land the job with the los angeles dodgers and take team within three wins. The world series certainly was landing on your feet and then some so and he was very constable where he was at. I think for him and joey said this it was a lot of fun for him to look back because there were so many good time. But he's given book. He gives a lot of credit to george steinbrenner and the whole steinbrenner family for bringing him in. I mean let's not forget. There was a lot of criticism in the yankees hired. Joe torre the infamous back page of the daily news about clueless joe and i'm sure they know joe is said this that all the good things that happen hand were made possible by the steinbrenner family reaching out and taking the chance on him as the manager in the first place and before he became the manager he had even talk to them about being the gm of that team had he not. That's right. There was a general manager's job open as well as the manager's job and you know for joe didn't wanna take what would have been a pay cut to take a job that would have been a lot more stressful for him. He had been. Let go the manager of the saint. Louis cardinals from the year before and the yankees. We're offering a significant pay cuts to be general manager and there may be no tougher job sports than being gm for george steinbrenner. And i think that point. That didn't have a lot of interest. In for joe torry but i think it also spoke to the fact that joe torry to me. Is somebody giving his experience and knowledge can do just about any job in baseball. I mean he was a very good color analyst with the then california. Angels back in those days and i think he would have made it very good. Gm but his. He wasn't a managing it still within his blood and he got a chance to play with obviously the best talent that he ever had certainly more than he had with the mets. Or the braves of the cardinals. One of the things that surprised me. The most is that Given where he was and that what he had to deal with on a daily basis meaning the personalities the media in new. And just i guess you might just say the bs that goes along with a job like that is that he was able to stay there as long as he was to have as much success as he did. Now when i look at it. And i think you'll verify this for me. Tom and you talk about it. In the book was his ability to stay even keeled not get too high. Knock it to upset or disappointed when things were going badly. Am i correct about that. Even keeled nece absolutely. And i think that is the absolute number one trae for manager of the new york yankees probably for any manager. But i think especially in new york. And i thought joe was at Making sure whatever issues came up didn't turn into bonfires. He'd put out fires pretty quickly and i think his calmness which he projected really just just. That's just the way joe torre. It's not even as he needed to change to to fulfill that role. I think that was a big important part of why the yankees won. And why are they actually those years where they struggle. They actually managed to get into those playoffs every year. A lot of times when you look back in two thousand seven two thousand five certainly. The yankees had a very tough time getting out of the gate and in new york. There's nothing worse than getting off to a bad start because you start playing games early in the season as early as may june that have the urgency of september. That's hard do for the remaining three or four months of the season. I think the only way you can survive and get through and getting your team not just to have a good season but to get back to the playoff is to have that kind of even keeled approach. I think that was you know. Listen a lot of people can quibble with game management. How a manager of russia's bullpen. That's part of the charm in the front of the game that we all like to think that we can do a better job managing. But i think the number one attribute for a great manager is definitely that carothers that image that you project and i thought joe was perfect for those yankee teams in those years. Don verduci is with us co author of the book along. Joe torry called the yankee years. If you look at the players that he has had on his team. I guess you might say at the opposite. Ends of the spectrum would be derek. Jeeter on one. Side and alex rodriguez on the other We're those the two players want. He felt most comfortable with and that he really respected the other. He was challenged by that. That's true i'm sure joe would also tell you that. He became very close with people like david cone and paulo meal. And certainly a bernie williams the guys who are part of the fabric of those four championship teams. I think derek was a special case because really nineteen ninety. Six was rookie year first full season in the big leagues. And you know really. I think they grew together almost our fatherland sundays. And i think that's a special bond and he shares with derek and especially two thousand and three derek being named captain the yankees obviously gave him an even closer relationship and greater role in the clubhouse than he had before. So yeah i think joe torry and and derek jeeter have a lot in common the way they approach the game. They're both very humble people who don't look for anything more than let's let's win this game. What's china win the world series this year and that's the only goal that they have and i think alex presented a much different challenge as mike be seen in the book. That alexander different motivation than other yankee players especially other than derek jeter. Yes he wanted to win but you know. Alex is also concerned about his statistics of being one of the greatest players of all time. And it's mike you seen pointed out. It wasn't necessarily that was wrong. Certainly but it with different from what the yankees had no and certainly different from what derek. Jeter hadn't known growing up as a yankee. So there's no doubt that. Joe put in a lot of maintenance with alex rodriguez to try to get him comfortable in new york in the clubhouse what it was like to be a yankee And the fact they didn't win a world championship with him on the team. I think the relationship that along. Different with joe torry. That had the way it was protect cheetah. Managing somebody like a jason jami david wells. Both of them pretty much free spirits. Yeah i mean. I think jason johnny turned out to be a great team. A anki and joe talks about this that when they first signed. Jason giambi joe actually was not on board with that. He really wanted to keep Tino martinez for one more year knowing that nick johnson was coming right behind him and they could groom johnson take over that job because joe a lot of emphasis on pitching and defense and obviously that was never a strong suit for jason john But that was really only from the way the team was constructed and what tories preference was kind of baseball that he liked wants. Jason joined the yankees. He couldn't help but like him as a manager. The yankees. now listen to her. Lot wasn't in the lineup. A lot and i think was it was his stayed. New york was disappointing. Only because of that reason but in terms of how he sit in their willingness to play play through pain and and to contribute in the clubhouse and when he was on the field. I don't think he present a much of a problem at all for jorrie. I think david wells are the different case and we all know. David is a guy who has one of the best big game pitchers of this generation but he needed to be pushed whether it was from Fellow players certainly david cone in the book talks a lot about being able to stay on david all the time and obviously that presented a lot of challenges for joe torre to joe understood at that. David was doing this from the perspective that he needed attention. He needed motivation He was the source of really is own trouble and a lot of ways but the feed off of that so we talked about. The maintenance of alex. Rodriguez there's certainly a lot with david wells. And they went out on a lot. Certainly you know face to face and sometimes in the newspapers. But i think joe realized that they had to deal with david wolf tom. I would assume the epicenter for yankee disappointment. would have to be that two thousand four american league championship series against the red sox when they were up three games to non against boston and it looked like they were headed to another world series. Why i think i got here. Frank series with the yankees. Were up three games. Non became the first history to blow at three games to none lead the baseball playoff. And there's no doubt that that was a watershed series for both the yankees and the socks but he decided to leave that moment alone. He remembered marianna. Striking kenema. Lauren yankee stadium earlier in the series and lo and behold. He doesn't say anything in marianna goes out. There almost never walked off better. But that's exactly what he did with kevin millar and that was the first lincoln chain a whole series of events. That just seemed to go. The red sox way stolen base. By dave roberts became time hit by billy miller and they were on their way to the grease comeback of all time in for joe torry that one moment marianna in the dugout. And not letting you know not saying anything to go out there and be aggressive with kevin millar. Something that stays with. Joe torre tom. We only have a minute left but at the end of the book you talk about that last meeting down in tampa with joe torry and how about him walking away knowing that it was over with. Can you just summarize that in about a minute. Yeah i think he went down there trying to salvage some possible way if there was any way to get back as manager of the yankees and he wasn't going to do a one year deal because he knew at that point it would be a day by day existence which is what the two thousand seven season was and he didn't wanna go through that again but there were no negotiations there at tampa and i think that's actually made. That actually made it easier for joe when he left that room and hit the button on the elevator. Knowing his yankee career was over to know that the steinbrenner family brian cashman everybody was on board with the fact that they wanted him back only on a one year deal and that actually made it easier for joe to leave knowing that there was no way he could've settled for something like that so the where he used was relief when he walked out of that room. You happy with the way. This book came out very much. So you know. I'll give joe a lot of credit here that he really was involved in this project the entire time in fact he read the book probably five or six times before it went to print Yeah he definitely did not take this lightly. His goal here was the let people in some of the insights of those yankees. And i think he's done that book that i think baseball fans will join now and even terry twenty years from now look back on that era and what happened and to get it from real inside perspective just an outstanding book tom.

All right and these questions are divided up into what one two three and seven point questions. Yes all right so we're start on a rather elementary level. At least i hope it's eliminatory because this could go really really poorly for you understand that jen you willing to accept that you really excited. You're not quite rooting for it. I would hope. I'm pretty easily entertained or watch score. Yeah you're watch chris. Cuervo all right Without further ado. Let's let's start with the ones twos and threes are boring. So we'll call it the hundred point around much one of those one point cards out and start with question. See what news. Publication depicted art modell punching a browns fan in the stomach on its december fourth nineteen ninety four nine hundred ninety five cover that's good sports illustrated's a pretty iconic cover you know of course i. It's it's hilarious. That we would lead off with a question like that. Because i mean that's the probably the most historic thing of all the disappointment in cleveland. Sports including the stuff on the field. I think it's right up there with the You know the decision as far as devastating things that didn't happen on the field by really gut punch the cleveland. Sports fan is perfect. Sports illustrated cover. If you haven't seen a going to sound like i'm gonna go that one I have a second all right. Let's go for question we have. What wide receiver set a brown's record when he posted one thousand two hundred and thirty six receiving yards during the nineteen eighty nine season during the nineteen eighty nine season. I'm gonna go with webster slaughter on that because it's browns really never had any kind of Receivers in the eighties and nineties all right. So we're all or two two on the first card. Well we just keep it going with letter. Beer question be there already so for bees. We've got what famous one time resident of hope. Arkansas threw out the ceremonial first. Pitch at the april fourth. Ninety four indians games. That open jacobs field. Okay i would not have needed hope. Arkansas bill clinton actually through the president of the united states the time and though the indians were wearing the chiefs who got on the field Billy kept it. pc with the with not the block. See that we know the indians to wear today but the one that they were previous to Nineteen eighty six. I believe it was. It was the white outline. See but Bill clinton that's right. Yeah all right sax man. He was a sex me and Who was the head coach of the browns when the nfl. Return to cleveland in nineteen ninety nine. Or that's going to be chris palmer and had just such a thankless job because the yield preparation. He's doing all these player personnel files on their own and the reporters are asking him. Like what are you doing chris. He's like i don't even have a secretary And that's part of why the browns stunk when they came back to get a little bit of a pass the first couple of years but now for twenty years of ineptitude. Yeah all right so four four on that car. Let's keep it going with more hundred questions here. Twitch one of these cards look like they might be a little tougher for jeff. Even easier ones john. Just go in. Abcd or we're going to do them all right acid picking your letter. Some what cleveland sports venue hosted its first game on april. Fourth nineteen ninety-four. That's gotta be jacobs field wound. It's almost like we reviewed that the next one of the questions are similar similar. I might actually learn something from this hearing it. But we'll see. Of course. What cleveland sports venue opened in one thousand nine hundred eighty four to replace richfield coliseum. Well let's go to the to rena. Yup which is now in quicken which is now the rocket mortgage field house it was quicken loans arena for a long time When dan gilbert bought the team two thousand five but it was named after the original owners When the team moved from richfield to downtown cleveland georgian gordon ga and kept that namesake until dan gilbert put his bank's name on it all already. What comic sent the browns to the super bowl by breaking up the drive in a dream sequence during an episode of a sitcom the has to be the drew carey show. 'cause do that prices wrong right wrong. All right what. Longtime browns running back finished his fourteen year career ranked sixteenth on the all-time nfl rushing list but is best remembered for the fumbles in january nineteen eighty-eight playoff game. It's so unfair earnest. Byner had just such a brilliant career. He was treated. I think before the eighty nine season To the redskins for mike olifants and he eventually came back to the browns that you were forty four. The first time around the two headed running attack with The earnest byner and kevin mack and they came back and i think that he were number. Twenty one the second time around this probably because the browns retired Leroy kelly's number forty four in between that was right. I would hope so okay so four for four hour. We got a couple of work art. So i'll to let's get another Set one hundred dollar questions writing. Let's go with what. Shortstop earned the gold glove award every year from nineteen ninety four to two thousand and one his first eight seasons. That's going to be omar vizquel. It was treated in the ninety. Three ninety four off season for felix for mean and reggie jefferson a ad omar vizquel as of the time of this recording is not in The baseball hall of fame. But you know maybe we'll stop being so snobby about offense of numbers and recognized great defense one of these days. What speedy return man posted seven special teams touchdowns for the browns from nineteen ninety. Two thousand nine hundred ninety four. Repeat the question. What speedy return man post it seven special teams touchdowns for the browns from one thousand nine hundred ninety two nine hundred ninety four. I think i'm looking at his picture right now. Crossing the goal line against the pittsburgh steelers where he had two parts earns. And i think the answer is going to be eric metcalf eric. Mexico's we'll get two more left on. This wasn't what troubled forward but perennial all-star the cavs acquire in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven three team trade involving the bucks amazon. Ix three. Let's out for the seattle supersonics but that's gonna be shawn kemp. He stuck around for four years.

Espn special in which lebron james announced his plans to sign with the miami heat. And all right that's gonna be the aforementioned decision to get one more and we got about two hundred all right in one thousand nine hundred five. What indians outfielder made his first. The first of his twelve all star game appearances in one thousand nine hundred ninety five i of his twelve all star game fences. I gotta pontificate a little bit on this one. Because they had quite a few players. I i don't know that manny ramirez played in twelve You said it's first. One was ninety five. I'm gonna go with vizquel here. It isn't it wasn't manny ramirez apps. That's a big Buzzer for right. Now negative one hundred. They're all right. Let's keep it going. I gotta i gotta earn my points back here. In nineteen ninety-five what indians pitcher earned the mvp award making him the first player to win the elsie. As mvp in both the al and the nl is that's going to be the bulldog who went bowling green or al hershiser reading. That was like stirring a pot of vegetable soup. Yes you're right on that one. In two thousand and four what browns tight and suffered a broken leg in the second game of his pro career. Sidelining him for the rest of the season That's gonna be k. To kellen winslow to Who the browns took over ben rothlisberger in the two thousand four draught. He had a troubled career with. Cleveland bounced around.

Yeah i he was definitely cheating at some point because he was suspended eventually. Just ousted from the game For not playing within the boundaries of the rules. But i ended up getting what Fourteen out of fifteen questions asked. We didn't get to the fourth question on the last card. Do you still have that that card available. They want to replace question.

That was trent richardson in both teams. Lost out on that. The browns used that. Pick to take Maybe brandon weeden at that point or actually you know what i think it was. It was johnny manziel draft draft so we did sixteen. And you've got fifteen of the sixteen all not county that we gotta move within the time time parameter so so i got i got four fifteen forty nine fifty and let's move onto the two point questions here okay.

I don't think it's something different in every every segment we've said it and every time a mug. No it's going to be something different. I'm saying it wrong. Okay so this game is divided up into once you. Three at seven point questions The one point questions were i. I missed one. So i mean completely insulting and miss two on the two hundred point questions. Let's go to the three point. Cards could hold number three. The number twenty five was retired by the cavaliers in honor of what point guard and played nine seasons for the club. Work for mark. Price was a great player. largely forgotten player planner fasciitis cannot derailed his career. I i'm not sure if he was a hall of famer or anything like that but He played a little bit longer. If not for the problems the number three was retired by the indians and honor of what center fielder and nineteen seventy five inducted to the baseball hall of fame. You'll be hard pressed to find any pictures with his number displayed on his jersey in any form but guy's name was early april and As a been retired. For as long as i can remember what nineteen eighty-five cavs draft pick. Didn't play for them until nineteen eighty due to a point shaving trial from his days at tulane from his days at you. Lean did not play in the until the abc trapped in eighty five but couldn't play until eighty six. Because i'm gonna guess ron harper. I know that he finished it. Miami of ohio. If you started at tulane no john williams was it to lehner. Tulsa has to lane university on your okay. Rice were he was a toy from tulsa. We've all seen that episode of seinfeld where trivial pursuit is incorrect. The move so. I mean maybe maybe you're not wrong. Maybe maybe the cards are wrong. We don't know we're going to have to remember where this came from. Its in our house but we have no idea who gave it to us. Don't don't nobody is ready. to strict. hierarchy williams died. Williams died back at twenty fifteen and then the internet tried to kill him again in twenty twenty i. It was sad. He was taken very young. Let's kinda just shimmy back into this like that didn't happen. What two thousand. Four fourth round pick of the browns start at four games as a rookie and was traded to tampa bay during the five. Nfl draft traded to tampa bay during the fires. Taking two thousand four hundred traded tampa bay in the two thousand five draft taken in the fourth round of the two thousand four draught while they took illinois winslow in that draft. And i'm just gonna filibuster. I don't have a good idea. You give me some initials l l. m. i'm still drawn a blank. Nothing luke luke account. Yeah we count. I forgot all about that. The only thing. I remember from him. Being a cleveland. Brown was He was like the second stringer third string quarterback and the browns actually recovered an onside kick where kellen winslow to broke his leg and they had to throw a hail mary 'cause they had like no time left and they luke accounting because he probably had a better arm than Jeff garcia today in one thousand nine hundred two what wide wide receiver left the browns. After seven years to then lead the colts in receptions and receiving yards left. The browns went to the colts that also reggie linked to say we got langhorne pop up here again. Richard elaincourt legend. You gotta know school. Sports trivia go wrestling or how all conferences and nfl championships did the browns win. In their first five seasons their first five seasons A fc nfl. I'm gonna say five. I must say that they can't of the nfl and they they. They wanted after being the only champions in the four year existence of the afc five incorrect a role in the nineteen sixty nine film winning started. What actor from cleveland. Down the road of a second career into auto racing. What actor one more time. A role in nineteen sixty nine film called a winning start at what actor from cleveland. Down the road of a second career in auto racing. This is a guest. Because i don't know many auto racers from cleveland. But i'm gonna go with bobby rahal. Paul newman. paul newman. How about that. Expat bill belichick went to the playoffs. Just wants his head coach of the browns. How many seasons did he coach them. He was there from ninety one until ninety five he took over a team that was led by bud carson for three years and then the browns went away The organization moved to baltimore without a name and In the process the fired bill belichick so he was kinda fired by nobody but five is cracked. What six time. Pro bowl offensive linemen for. The browns was finally inducted into the pro football hall of fame in two thousand seven thirty four years. After he retired it was it was an awesome seen. I think this was. This should be gene hickerson number sixty six. That's what saint ignatius grad and west virginia quarterback did the houston oilers select in the second round of the nineteen eighty-two nfl draft scenic dishes grad. I wanna say oliver is that right. That's very lucky. Guess i didn't know that he was actually from cleveland and i learned something every day. Founding it up with what seen anxious grad earned three conference. Usa offensive players of the year award while welcome piling. Hitch twenty seven to eleven record. As starting quarterback for the university of louisville university of louisville. See i would have gone with david klingler in houston but If it's louisville it's gotta be the lefty david gone yup and another wordy. Another wordy question coming out here. What saint vincent saint mary. Grad was selected by the denver nuggets in the first round of the nineteen eighty-eight nba draft following a standout career at the university of pittsburgh.

The cubs Yes got them title. After one hundred and eight years he served for a hundred and eight months. One eight is one of my phone numbers but he had stated that he is taking time off to see what freedoms he has and what opportunities are out there how long with whom before. He's back doing some kind of baseball thing. What you don't respect feels gap year now. Don't go backpacking across. He could get a He gave you the lower back. Dads to you. I mean really. This is this is his year. This is his. You and i have have done this a lot. Actually we call it college week. i think that the elapsed after thirty years of wake up punching into the ballpark. I think that he's just ready to see you. Kind of kick it have Some me time. It's gonna be a summer of theo. Little little gap in the teeth little gap in between baseball outings. Delicious baby gap a little. Tiny baby. gap you know. I think that he just he just done everything that he could do. I s argue little wet blanket. Facebook post because everybody's gonna drool over his accomplishments. Abc six year curse for the red sox in two thousand four at but he hired kerry franken and he ended a hundred eight year curse for the chicago cubs but he hired joe maddon In in both situations he had the luxury of spending money. This is the only little pooh-poohed that i have on the whole field. Jed honeymoon dream utopia sequence clubs. Fans of you know certainly was utopia. He's not turning around franchises. Just ravaged by problems. I mean he's the anti money ball in fact at the end moneyball on the offer. Brad pitt the job at the red sox. It's the anti oakland as job so Nobody did it before him. So bravo to him Also there's some things to consider about The pave the path a little bit easier and remember the red sox were in the year before Comes close to play offs when he took over in twenty eleven right right so thanks for your time you peace out. All right gonna throw a little randomness in here. The i f. l. The indoor football league released their twenty twenty one scheduled. Today do anything for him. I mean we have. We only know about this pretty much because we have the rattlers down the street. We have three teams in the state of arizona. Three teams you'll get the sugar schools down in tucson in the ramblers of northern arizona. Which i'm gonna assume is prescott but Ed very well could be flagstaff. I think it's prescott because that. Yeah that's where the northern arizona sons play that's where the The old son dogs played. I know that they've got an arena. There i'm not sure that they've got the facilities in flagstaff Foreign afl team but they could easily play where the lumberjacks play where northern arizona university lumberjacks play at the skydome there flagstaff prescott prescott all right so i have always assumed prescott i. I think that the lead character in the movie scream. Sidney prescott was definitely sidney prescott and you're it's it's mocked the way that they say it up there that it it kinda rhymes with biscuit not doesn't sounds like a skit by. I have been corrected. When i've done the hard scott and i've been told you don't want people to think you're from out of town you start saying prescott prescott. I like it. I got i got one for you. Where do the dukes the gladiators play duke city. Gladiators that's sounds like a texas. He kind of thing close close new mexico new mexico. I look at their site and the contact phone number was five. Oh five five. Oh five albuquerque witness there so the afl actually deteriorated a couple of years ago but two years before the afl deteriorated the rathers jumped ship and went with the nfl And since then the nfl is actually grown. they've added teams absorbed some other teams from afl. So they're constantly changing. That's kind of exciting in. Afl had some trademarks. You know with the nazi no with play in the fall off the net. So there's there's some different rules you got to run the ball a little bit more in the nfl than you did in the old arena football league but yeah that old arena. Football league is the tortoise shreds if it exists at all anymore now it's okay. I think whatever was remaining covert and pretty much. Kill off Eddie so moving on here. We are now more than halfway through the nfl season. We are down to the final stretch of series of games. Anything anyone turns it around. You think anyone collapses what we're looking at here in the back half were You know i'm looking at getting in the nfc New orleans already beaten tampa bay twice other going to be without your breeze for as long as his broken ribs Prohibited him from being on the field. And i think that That decision could be made easier or to be made more difficult by the play of jameis. winston I would like to think that winston probably play a little bit better despite not having a lot of reps You know throughout you know the the lack of training camp and the pre lack of preseason by i think they'll stay afloat as long as they keep Everybody else healthy. Alvin kamara and and michael. Thomas are huge ups to that team. Defense you still have to get it done to extensive new orleans without breeze. I think that's a big story If you're looking for a decline i would say the baltimore. Ravens look like they are well on their way down But on the flip side of that you've got all these six and three teams in the afc. How about the rise of miami. How about the rise of las vegas and not spend too much time on it. But cleveland being six three without beckham without a sure thing quarterback without nick chubb for a couple of weeks myles garrett getting done on the other side of the ball so I think the that the teams that might have a meteoric rise. We're already seeing it from them a little bit and the only juxtaposition of You know the east and the west in the nfc cardinals proved that their legitimate. They've beaten play if teams to state their case that They're good six and three. And then you have the nfc east where the eagles lead with three wins through night games. I mean you know. I just don't know what to make of that Nfc east i. I think those are the big stories down the stretch here in the national football league watching them hopefully get some more winds or just continue to be crap. Tastic look offers patriots and look out for one of those Teams that's out the packers in the nfc north because somebody's gonna turn a corner and You know the bears are going to take a downward turns time. My laptop has tendency to just decide what time it is. Every day i reset it to the correct time in the next day. It's off by hours atomic clock here. Yeah symptom so everyone's back at it. I practice after fighting the road. But the u. is not had a rescheduled their last three games. One of them won't even played. unless they're going to be in some kind of contention. What what does the future hold for them and the rest of ncwa football all right. Well they don't have a notre dame remaining on their schedule clemson. They've already lost to Presuming clemson doesn't lose another game and looking at what they've got left they're not going to notre dame's not going to lose another game listed are going to play each other in the acc championship Miami could get bullion because there are no restrictions on the bowl games but Let's see if they could actually get back on on the field I think that the acc wide open. The town is wide open. Tangere pac twelve. pretty wide. Open victoria doesn't really have a contender. And it's one of the two from the acc and then deal whoever challenges alabama from the east looking like florida and they've got a heisman trophy candidate in cal. Trask and heisman. Still a thing that sees it's such a lack of level playing ground you've got Kyle trask who's breaking t-boz records down there. So he's you know he's definitely in the conversation You've got justin fields. You've got trevor lawrence. You've got ian book. You've got zack. wilson And i i wanna give the kid from. Usc a chance even though they've only played two games slowest. I you know. I'd have definitely want to give him a chanson because back. Jones starting quarterback at alabama. He's going to insert himself into the conversation begins. We can ohio state. Indiana ohio state hasn't looked dominating. Indiana has been very surprising. You may look at michigan. As a big disappointment. I there's teams all over the country that you'd have to write up is a disappointment. There's so much mediocrity. I guess that's to be expected because of yolk over and and whatnot. And you never know if you're gonna play a game on. Saturday could be thursday afternoon. You find out. You're not gonna play for three weeks so this is kind of a weird year but It's better than nothing. And that's what i have to say across the board or any time you want to gripe about How covert has appreciated sports during these times. I you have to look back and say it could be nothing at all throat. You break john rich. I'm jeff rich. Paul territory sports overnight. America scores and ryan.

We're here to entertain so You know that'd be it said What's going on this week man Sports wise kinda still. Don't care if it's sports neo. We have a loose obligation to sports here but right have to stay with it. I mean about hobbies and stuff but we'll keep it sports related. I mean obviously just today the niners or had their media availability with kyle shanahan. Because they're on their bye week and so all the news. And i think we're going to talk about this We were kind of discussing us off air. These potential trade rumors for jimmy g. I haven't heard anything about garoppolo. Getting traded but there are a lot of people that are coming out of the woodwork. That aren't real happy with this guy and You know shanahan had his presser. And i don't have the audio for you but basically to paraphrase. He said that he believes that. Garoppolo will be the starting quarterback for next year. So i mean that's news to me. But i think they did pay them close to one hundred million dollars. I mean i forget the exact terms of the contract. But he's certainly not the second coming of joe montana steve young at this point four and six through ten games. You know it's good enough for fourth place in the nfc west. But this season is far from over when you consider the of dominant teams outside of outside of the west and the and the south in the nfc. I mean green. Bay's got the record to show it by know we've seen the entire. Nfc north fall part. Are the niners looking at this as a season. That's lost because you know because they've been so decimated by injury or are they still playing sixteen games share and maybe making an effort to sneak into the playoffs. I think personally. They're they're just they're just trying to find a way to get through the next game. I mean i watched some of the some of the so-called highlights. I guess you could say because One of the things that even i cover the forty niners as a reporter. I'm still actually a pretty big raider fan. And so i'm pretty Lack of a better word. I'm still pretty. You know he owed. The raiders moved and so One of the things to now. Is that the raiders. Go go up against the niners head to head competitors and so this past sunday you know here. It is the raiders They're they're playing their game and Ended up winning contest I'm trying to remember their opponent with. I'm drawing a blank there. But but the the niners game against the saints was just pathetic. I mean they. They had two to two plays where Or balls were dropped. I believe on punts and and it resulted in the in the You know the saints being able to take advantage. Even though drew brees basically has like what two or two or three crack ribs and a and a and a cracked a collapsed lung rather so rough for him of the raiders. Rather be the broncos that yeah so Anyway so i. It's been tough. Because i personally pretty excited to see. What the raiders are doing. They're gonna have a con Huge challenge coming up and they're the featured game for sunday night football against the hated chief so Anyway i think it's an interesting following the niners right now because there really are rudderless ship my opinion i mean the the injuries are obviously hurting them. they don't have good players to back up their their. You know their top players and so there there. I during guide that are hurt. I think they just don't have any solution to who they're gonna put in tobacco these guys up. So i mean good for the niners. They've got a bye week. Because i mean they're pretty unwatchable at this point i mean. Do we consider this happens. Dancer do we put a level of accountability on lynch for not building depth into the roster or or even shanahan with that. I mean yeah. Of course it's always it's always gonna come down to the coach. Gm did an interview I'm a colleague of mine Matt barrows wrote a book called. If these walls could talk about the san francisco forty niners in. Instead of talking about the glory. Days of montana and steve young he chronicles the teams Kind of downfall from two thousand and three Back to back to the rise of where it was. And you know maybe kind of going downhill again. Because of all these injuries so His book chronicles the team from two thousand and three to twenty twenty. And i just think that The niners yeah they. They're kind of becoming directionless at this point because they don't have the depth like you said and it's always gonna come back on on the front office but i think that's just the nature of the economics of the nfl. And you just don't have the kind of depth that used to have i mean. Isn't that crazy to think that back in the day. Joe montana's backup with steve young. I mean you got one hall of fame quarterback in the backup of the hall of fame quarterback. I mean this day and age. You just don't have that you got a huge drop off. I mean you go from nick. Mullins he doesn't you know he can't get the job done he. You know his his backup is. Cj beathard these these guys are just you know they're barely serviceable quarterbacks. In my opinion but it wasn't it wasn't long ago that she had smith backing up. Capper knicker or vice versa. That up the has been there and you. You mentioned montana yang I thought that new england would have it for a while but they moved on from brusett and garoppolo and and the brady was gone like less than three years later. You know from from both of their departure so that depth. A quarterback actually kind of brings visa to sopa that. I want to talk about at can loosely. Tie it to the bay area. Not that i necessarily need to but You know you've got a situation in chicago where they've got the number two overall pick from twenty seventeen currently injured but had lost his job to a guy in nick foles that outside of that one year in philadelphia. That one magical run. Nick foles has gotten paid a lot of money and had a statue built for him in philadelphia based on that one season but The entire body of work. Just doesn't sell ya. Nick foles in Wouldn't you rather see what you have. I mean that's the draft where san francisco actually held the number two pick and took up a fairly good amount of drake capital from or draft capital from the chicago bears through to allow the bears to move up to You know move up to number two in that draft and then you end up with With a guy that You don't feel as the guy to the point where you're playing nick foles and i'm thinking that matt nagy is going to be out because they couldn't make it work with trubisky as the trubisky is going to be a looking for a new home more on that in a second but Long winded way to get to the question of you see any possibility. The jim harbaugh goes to chicago and brings a his quarterback from san francisco. That's been out of the game for awhile with them. In what capital you mean Strategy vague about it. Yeah i was thinking about. What quarterback is that. Oh yeah you know. I think tapper nick. You know has has become such a nonfactor as a quarterback and he's been out of the game. I think for a while now i mean maybe he could pick it up again but i don't see him being that effective and even when he was playing well i still never thought he was that effective even though he let it seems the super bowl. I just always thought that he had this raw talent that he just couldn't quite harnessed. He could never read defenses properly. I never thought he could read. Readers receivers downfield properly either but he had a great arm. I think they found a way to make it work for them and he went from being a second round. Pick is largely considering bosses rookie season to To being the man but only for a couple of years he had that strange contract situation with the the health issue and and then everything else from know that's not really football related The spiraling out of control We're going to pick it up with ryan leong the other side for rich.

What's up r. I c. h. e. s and Ryan you want to get your twitter handle out there and then we'll pick up the conversation here. Yeah real simple. Just my name. Ryan r. y. a. n. leong l. e. o. n. g. at ryan lee. On all right you. And i have of course by the of on the social media Throughout the week. In your between the tuesdays that We have this precious time to Speak with each other You wanted to get it out there. It's actually from sixteen years ago but Interesting article that you wrote on kim. I hang Who is now the general manager for female general manager in major league. Baseball of the miami marlins. Yes in fact. I believe i think i penned it nicely i didn't i'm gonna repeat it again. A repentant to my profile The interview that i did and it appeared in a in a Publication that was known as asian week. But it's the funk but somehow some somewhere on the web it was saved the article in its entirety was saved and it was basically a and so i was able to ask him some. Pretty you know like not softball questions. I was asking things like You know all the experience argument assistance. Gm with the keys and then had the same position with the dodgers and she gets passed up and gets high a paul d. pedestrian who some people may remember Whether disciple of billy beane and he was featured in the movie moneyball but he didn't want to have his real name us so they had What's that guy's name. The guy from sale. John you with that name. What he was was amalgamated of all of the all of the mines. That billy. Bean used you know it was just deepa desta. Though a large part of the character you know is rooted in deep desta. Right so he but he. He wanted no affiliation with with the name being associated with project so he was known as peter brand that was a character's name and moneyball so i don't wanna get into too much detail about moneyball people like it. I thought it was kind of ridiculous film because there are so many inaccuracies with it and The biggest travesty of always the fact that the late. Philip seymour hoffman. Is nothing like the real art. How that was an insult to art. How and. I'm glad to go on record and i can say that because i remember. We interviewed him shortly after the movie came out and he was just basically. It was pissed. And you wanna talk about any reference to the movie. And of course i assured him i said look art. You know where people that covered this team in two thousand and two. We're not going to even get a mention to this movie and arts just one of the great guy than baseball. Really good really. Good person I i would say a good manager. Hey certainly had some successes with the as his best. you know. Best years as a manager with the as also managed the astros and the mets and unfortunately the the mets didn't didn't do as well as you would have thought but of course you could say that about a lot of managers at the mets right right. I'll tell you the the the hollywood movies upsets a lot of people involved. The real life events Michael lower Yell just did does know why. Why'd i know how it was defined by it and then you know you talk about how art howe was improperly portrayed by philip seymour hoffman in moneyball. Dan devine was truly villain is in rudy. You know the the real story is that rudy was going to play in the last game. Dan devine headed set that way. And for a hollywood to kinda insert. This coup Dan devine and his family of never felt good about it. And i believe that divine heh passed away probably ten fifteen twenty years ago By hollywood rarely does these these stories True justice and You you knew it watching moneyball especially the omission of mention of You know. Miguel tejada and Really the minimalized. Jamais daikin is drained. Findings makoto was in. There was portrayed by royce clayton which is hilarious because takata great guy but he speaks very noticeable hispanic accent and also royce clayton playing him. And there's no mention of the big three that's the real travesty of moneyball. There's no mention of tim. Hudson a barry zito mark moulder. There you go there thousand two right there and then the closer billy koch i mean the as had a few flaws but there was obviously a very good team and that pitching staff was pitching happened there. Berries ito won the cy young. You're i think he was twenty three and five. He was unstoppable that year and israel. Housing is housing. Billy koch daily catch. Probably had his best years with the blue jays but was not a bad closer for the oakland athletics. no exactly he just. Yeah you had some bad moments but yeah he had one good year with the as and and he can throw hard you know and of course you know as what closings especially Basically since the year two thousand and now the harder you throw the more likely you are to be the closer all right. We got the nba first year player. Draft coming up on wednesday and i. It looks like Lamelo ball Is slated to go number one overall and then the warriors hold the second pack There's a consensus pick but there's also sauces some speculation. That warriors may not be picking for themselves right. I mean a lot of people say that right. now they're going to go from memphis center. James wiseman and this is the first senator that the warriors are going to have it. I mean they really like this. This this guy's ability. Apparently he's really got some wheels. He can really run You know they had a guy named i believe. It was Damian jones right but he couldn't he couldn't he just couldn't handle the rigors of of of of nba play so and so You know we'll see what happens. But i think the words may also Decide to trade at that number. Two pick get a veteran and then trade lower in the rather pick lower in the draft. The the lakers the warriors should be. You're not necessarily back to full strength because you know it's been a while since we've seen this team successful without kevin durant You know as part of the package. there's gotta be some confidence in the warriors Warriors lakers looks. Like it's you know it's the best of the west but If you look around the last there's some there's some teams that have some talent. I think that phoenix just got added to the mix. But i you'll certainly denver and also portland Your our teams to to watch for in the western conference this season. Yeah i'm i'm curious. Deal can happen in this whole deal with james harden. I mean this guy who's got a tremendous ego. I guess it's because of the beard but What he turns down like over one hundred million dollars because he wants to get traded to play with the nets play with the durant kyrie irving and form this new. I guess the miami heat of of the twenty twenty twenty one twenty. One season like lebron. James with chris. Bosh and and dwayne wade. Dad ails super team. Thing goes even further back than that. I mean you you can look at the way. The danny ainge orchestrated things during the two thousand eight draft to bring in kevin garnett for the services of al jefferson. And then you get your allen for for essentially nothing when you're you know you're dealing with kevin mchale there in in minnesota so you know you've seen the super teams put together one thing that i've heard You know though. Houston in brooklyn are actually entertaining. The idea of a trade is that houston's not giving up hardened to to brooklyn without bringing back kevin durant or kyrie irving I would think that kyrie irving might be dispensable if if the nets feel teaming hardened backed up with durant is a winning formula but I don't see the three of them playing together next year. And there's really no motivation for the rockets to move him specifically to brooklyn. He's the they've got all the leverage in the situation. Yeah i just think you know. Pardon is not good players he is. This is not a team player guy. Okay this is a guy who just loves to. I mean this. This guy is the definition of ball. Hog. i just. I'm just not convinced me that he's certainly wanted to one of the one of the best players in the nba. But he's just not a guy you can win with. That's what i think. I would agree with that to a certain extent and it sounds like russell. Westbrook doesn't even care about winning You talk about his team there at houston. If houston's going to blow it up. I think the court i saw he. Spn dot com. It was houston's ready to get uncomfortable. Added that's reshaping their roster. They're completely built around. James harden right now they don't necessarily have to be because there are no matter. How good and hardin is. He's always subject to that off night. And those off nights tend to occur in the months of april and may. Oh yeah i mean he. Just like i mean just the propensity which jackson three like like like it's nobody's business like a catapult or something is ridiculous. I mean this guy. He may throw it up as many times of steph curry but steph curry makes his shots right well and there's nights that he's absolutely on and he gets to the foul line on. I mean he does lots to you know. Make sure scores enough points to at least hang around a. It'll look ahead to the twenty twenty one season. 'cause i mean there's gonna be what nine days and then we're outta flip the calendar to twenty twenty one after this december twenty second start. Have you seen this setup where we're going to play seventy two games. I think it's three games against your own conference in two games against the you know all your counterparts in the opposite conference and then they're kinda doing flex scheduling so they're going to schedule the first Forty two games on the Then they'll follow up with the last thirty and then have a plan for the For the eight cd believe mary. The seventh and eighth seed in each conference. Unique approach to a. What's going to be another unique season in the national basketball association. You have to stay a little more careful. I mean a lot of this information just came out with the last four hours. But i think what's interesting also. You might have heard this. Also jeff is The warriors have a plan where they wanna test everybody for covid with the highest level of testing possible and get the fifty percent fan capacity the same. I mean i mean. He's spending a lot of time than media room to go out and sit and sit in the in the stands which is where they put the media. I don't wanna be around What would that be nine thousand fans. No thanks it's just tough to the state of california making exceptions. Considering how lockdown. Everything has been since since almost the very beginning. I dunno i in the same way. I don't see the nba with the rafters. Giving you getting an exception. I think we might see the raptors play in kansas city or louisville the season if they can't find something closer to closer to home there It's gonna be normal in twenty twenty one i. I would hope that we're somewhere. You know someone close in twenty twenty two. But i would think no fans at Any california event you know until further notice but that's just kind my view from the outside. Yeah i think he might see some fans. I just can't see how the words are gonna get fifty percent capacity. I just i just don't see it. I mean maybe they'll find a way to get. I would say twenty five percent. Because i think there could be some fans in the building but it's it's it's definitely a dicey for sure prior to co Do they have any problems. Filling up the chase center was a wasn't the same type of atmosphere with the with the crowds as it wasn't at no not exactly a and it's a much bigger building. I mean i mean capacity wide. That was about the same but it was certainly built with all these luxury suites in mind. Keeping you gotta remember that. The warriors oracle arena was a refit like here in seattle which is basically kept the same shell and they redid the entire inside because the original coliseum arena had no luxury suites and it was a fifteen actually was about ten to fifteen thousand capacity building and they redid it with all these luxury suites that it could fit in one thousand nine thousand nine hundred or five hundred ninety six. So how much everybody with hutton. Did you see the sitting out there. In oakland is the is the only tended out there by the airport I don't see them for very long. I mean the the problems. They have the playoffs the fact that he keeps getting out in the first round like this and then they don't get that much support They basically the team doesn't doesn't do the best at at trying to draw attention media attention that they need they seem to enjoy the sort of renegade approach that they that they that they have. It's almost like being kind of like the oakland raiders a little bit but not with the same level of popularity and i think that signals then as the possibility that they could have moving feel i could see them moving to either portland more las vegas we shall see how that all shakes out ryan Thanks so much for taking the time.

However we did have a walker of a result which will get to after the break in between germany and spain.

I forget we did a full europa me with the euros euro preview but the nations league is going on and why i like the nations league. Because it's better than meaningless friendlies. Which i absolutely cannot stand. The drama does occasionally come through even though the nations league is somewhat of a sort of kind of meaningless type of tournament. That isn't really all that important. The big scheme of things having said that as a precursor to the euro's coming up it is very important which is why germany shellacking six nil defeat at the hands of spain in spain in severe is shocking to say the least Because keep in mind up to this point in the nations league Spain had scored seven goals and germany scored. Ten germany had conceded six painted on. He conceded three so defensively spain. What well doing well but germany were. Were certainly Scoring plenty of goals. No one in their right mind figured that this would be a six nil scoreline including an early go from murata farren torres with a hattrick rhodri bell scored in the ninetieth minute for spain. And if you think about for a minute. The spanish team whereas they're great team they haven't been playing that well. They beat switzerland one. Nil in madrid. They tied they lost in ukraine. One nil they drew one one to switzerland in basel and then to come home though and shellac germany. Six nil was an absolute shocker. Now the press of course going absolutely crazy. This whole group is thrown up into turmoil for two reasons. Number one is if ukraine played beat switzerland and beats them by a reasonable goal margin. It is possible that ukraine will actually leapfrog germany or not that match of course is been postponed because of kobe tests. Germany will come out of this group second. But who really cares. What can what you why you should care about. This is two reasons number one is. This was a young german team that was put out on the pitch but an excellent team. Let's not minimize the quality of the german team. That was put out against this spanish team. team mova surgeon. Aubrey leroy up top cruise undergone and gradiska in the mid in the midfield and then he had max coach soula and defensively and neue in it was a definitely a younger team. No doubt about it but a six nil scoreline is type of scoreline that will see manages off to a greener pastures. And of course this is what the press and particularly in germany are calling for build. Which is you know very influential. German newspaper for voelpel said lo yogi. Low should offer his resignation. He should just get lucky. They got out of severe quickly The football world is in shock and he should go the frankfurter roden shall said. The team is let down. Its coach these young players any goodwill they had was used up in ninety minutes the frankfurter allgemeine zeitung says given the current state of the team. the goal of reaching the euro. Semi's is absolutely impossible and that is the rub. of course cologne's express said it's a lifeless team of total failure. Maybe that's a little harsh. It was really just one result. The question is will yogi. Low survive this kicker. Their online poll lost if the right man to coach. Germany unsurprisingly It was ninety three point eight percent nine. Well when ninety three point eight percent german. say nine you know you're in trouble Look if you are a fan of germany. I don't think you want to make take take this one as anything other than say liverpool's dismantling by aston villa. Is it some problems in the team. Yes absolutely other issues. Yes all these young players ready for prime time. Probably but maybe not. Do you fire the coach. I don't know no. I don't think so. I don't think. I don't think you know less than a year out from the euros. You should be firing yogi low. I just doesn't make any sense to me why you would want to do that. Other than trying to cover up for your humiliating embarrassment at the hands of spain but you know. The spanish team is good. No doubt about it. the french team i think is the best and i don't think anybody should be overly surprised if france wednesday euros or goes to the final will germany. You know prior to this Prior to this result. I'm i might have thought that they would. But you know the thing is that once team's have seen you taken apart six-nil they look at you a different way again. Let's turn this around to the premier league. This is very similar to some of the issues this year. That liverpool's having that people are seeing this team. That lost year was almost what the entire season. Unbeaten is beatable. Once people think you can be had they get extra confidence for from that. And so i think the german team is certainly going to suffer. That it's gonna make the euro's more difficult for them Do i think then not favorites. I wouldn't have thought they were favorites. Anyway i'll go to bed online dot. Ag here actually. During the break. And i'll check the odds for the euro. So let's see how they've shifted and let's have a little chat about that. But i would think that france is still prohibitive favorites here for the euro's the way they look the spanish team probably moving up. I always think. Spain kind of flashes to deceive a little bit Particularly particularly on the international on these big international tournaments. That's just that's just my that's my take on it i. I know that they're fans of the spanish national team. That will completely completely disagree with me. And i am. I respect that. But i still like very much. The i still very much like france and overall favourite and the reason there was a little poza is. I am looking to see if i can find what i need. Which is the futures for the euro so we will get the anyway. I tried to look during the break. And see if i can find it for you because that would be a lot of fun. Let's take a look and see who is curve me favored a week. You have a whole slate of premier league matches by the way coming up over the weekend at on. Friday show will break that down to you.

You can hear on sports overnight. America coming you on the by burqas networking sirius. Xm to eleven. Dan patrick sports at like to welcome our men and women in uniform around the world. Listening on the american forces network. So we'll talk a little bit about the euro's and the odds of winning and these odds generally have not actually been updated since the shocking defeat of germany as in spain at the hands of spain. Six goals to nil. If we look at the If we look at the trajectory in terms of odds of the top five of the euro's is fascinating to see for example How it was plus eighteen hundred Netherlands back in july of eighteen. We've now come all the way down. Where netherlands were just a little bit ahead at seven thirty three of germany as of november thirteenth. Of course germany. We'll have dropped further after that. Nations league defeat the odds of england. Winning are currently at plus five hundred. A so france are the favorites that plus five hundred belgium plus fifty england plus five fifty the netherlands plus seven hundred and germany. A plus seven hundred spain. Plus seven hundred. And then you get into the more long shots of portugal croatia denmark etc etc. All the way down to north macedonia at plus fifty thousand. But look at these and again. These are the odds prior to This weekend's nations league play if you look at these. I think that they're off. Because i suddenly think france is the favourite. I would say netherlands would be right behind them Then belgium then england likely than spain than possibly germany so i think things are moving around a little bit in terms of the odds again these future results and they will change as we have a few more international games before the euro do kickoff next year and i believe they will happen june eleventh through july eleventh of next year so there will be some international matches to look at including the nations league which is now set and moving into the group stages. So let's take a look shall we. League a is italy and the netherlands will move forward out of group one Italy a perfect. A didn't lose a game only conceded two goals in a group with the netherlands poland and bosnia soap Bosnia and herzegovina so Italy very very strong here in the group stages and possibly italy could be dark horse. Here for the euro's. Let's go back to those odds that we were talking about For us of the euro's italy a plus nine hundred The most recent odds for italy were plus fourteen hundred. So that's a great a great value right now. If you could get italy. I would place a little wage of that because i think that very undervalued right now. A group to belgium denmark england and iceland england and said not advancing england ending on points after the four nil defeat of iceland in the final group game belgium on top fifteen points with only losing the one game denmark ten points As i said. England iceland going out. Group three is french and portugal. France unbeaten scoring twelve goals and conceding. Five portugal drawing one losing one. Of course the game they they lost was excuse. Me was to france. Croatia and sweden eliminated from The nations league. Spain and germany moving forward in group four was spain on top ukraine and switzerland exiting. The league be. It gets kinda interesting though australia. Norway moving through the check republican scotland scotland actually losing their last game to israel which was interesting hungary and russia moving on serbian turkey eliminated from grew for wales and finland. Moving forward from group four republic violent and bulgaria not so much Then we get into the country's no disrespect but from a footballing perspective. I don't know how interested you would be in kazakhstan or slovenia and if we get into group d we're going to go even down further down. The list of the faroe islands gibraltar liechtenstein latvia and san marino and malta. The football powerhouse. That is multi so. I'm not sure that we really hate to say care. Because if you're from one of those countries he certainly do cab certainly from what we talk about in this on this show not all that much interest there but it is fascinating to see italy and i look at italy They did draw three games admittedly and that may be why they're not looked at as a failed In more favorable light by the oddsmakers they drew at home They beat the netherlands in holland. And that is that is a result that you have to look at by the way As a really important Important result they drew poland away in poland and they drew the netherlands at home and then they went to bosnia m beat and beat them Two nil so if you look at italy's results they've actually been pretty decent. A couple of draws law says berlin not conceding. Very many goals. I i think when you're playing polling. The bosnia the expectation is the skull moguls and they did but italy and the netherlands both only scoring eleven goals over the six matches at for example if you look at group. Two would belgium denmark england and iceland. I think you could say A strong group. Belgium scored sixteen goals. I mean think about that sixteen goals. I mean Remote roberta martin. S aside a really. Good goalscoring tally conceded. Six same thing with france and portugal and maghreb scoring twelve goals apiece across spain thirteen goals in germany ten. So when you. Look at the tally for italy. And the netherlands Sh seven goals each. You know you wonder you know. If they've got the necessary firepower they need to to do the job at euro. Twenty twenty one i. It is actually a twenty twenty but it is being played in twenty twenty one just for some added Football confusion for you. Let's talk about some news Rolling its way around the world of football man city. Livable striker mario ballot. Telly has been talking to bonds lii in the championship. that's interesting. You may remember ballots. Very colorful player played for liverpool for awhile. It wasn't particularly successful but that to me is interesting. The ballot tally is trying to keep his trying to keep himself intact and if we look at the championship by the way the big story. I don't think we talk. We talked much about this yesterday. But dhabi county. Who last year had a terrific season. I mean almost making promotion Fire that coach philippe cocoa because they are in big trouble. Eleven games in dead bottom of the table They only have one win in eleven games and they actually have seven losses. They've scored only five goals. In eleven games. I lost the championship is of the most difficult leagues you can play in. Its grueling that twenty four teams in the championship. It's not sexy. Like the premier league. It's not quite as much money. It's a tougher. I think it's tough a harder game and it's a real grind and i think dhabi county decided it was time to make a change. Of course wayne rooney being groomed their dhabi county to take over as the manager after felipe kokou but now the kacoos mean fired. Rooney is now the player coach. I believe is now his title so now all hands. All eyes are on the immunity of shoulders of the very stocky wayne. Rooney say dimunitive. Because he's not the tallest guy. We'll see what happens with dhabi county. You'll be a real shame for them to get relegated and if you look at the top of the table right now you got reading and wofford are in the automatic promotion positions. Keep in mind. This is really really early. Doors here in the championship. Norwich beaumont bristle and swazi currently in the In the playoff spots. We're gonna get tomorrow. The championship was we get a little deeper on into the season. As we look at the premier league and of course getting ready for a full weekend of primarily action coming up not too far away just a few days away. And i will again on friday giving you my patented primarily preview show less to tottenham liverpool and southampton rounding out the top four chelsea in the fifth spot again. The big story the primarily just to refresh your refresh. Your memory is man united in fourteen spot and man sixty in tenth spot. Lots of discussion going back and forth now about pep guardiola messy. We talked about this a couple of days ago there were rumors the guardia had agreed in new contract but but go magazine is reporting that. Guatemala hasn't decided if he's going to stay at city or not even though the sun for whatever worthless rag that is is talking about. How city are ready to go. Back in hard phil- Leonov messy but the sun and not the only one reporting that that's being reported in spain. That's been reported in england. And i have to think where. There's smoke this fire but i wonder how much of a draw pep guardiola is going to be till you know messy which means if you wanna get messy. You probably gotta keep guatemala. Which means that offer sheet for guardiola for his for re resign him is going to have to get more and more lucrative as they go along as as it may well as it may well couple of just quick stories Some talk about their talk about players here and there but for me capper carrozza from chelsea you know he was. The highest pay goalkeeper is willing to take a pay cut in order to get away from chelsea. Because he's upset that he's not getting regular football and he's worried about his place In the spain squad for euro two thousand twenty so look those are some stories going around and football cover more of them as we get back into the premier league Next week and of course friday meantime.

I am your host makita great to be with you sad day sad weekend as the news has reverberated that Legend goalkeeping legend liverpool. Legend england legend tottenham legend. Right clements passed away from prostate cancer over the weekend At the age the young age of seventy two years old a very sad indeed If you're new to the sport and assumptions that i make That many people here in the united states on new to the sport in the last. I don't know i mean let's let's give it since i've been doing this twenty years. Okay since i've been on the air here in the us twenty years many of you probably don't know who ray clements was. Part of that is the same way that if you wanna talk to me about the great. Nfl teams of the nineteen seventies I probably wouldn't be able to tell you who the great players were sure There's the guys on the commercials all the time Whose name escapes me now. That just tells you how much i know about it but allow me to fill you in a little bit. On the legend that was right clements. He was english. He was signed from He started his footballing career. One thousand nine hundred sixty six for scunthorpe united which was then in the theatre which was then a third division team which now i mean it was in the a league to but bill shankly the lever pool the the legendary liverpool manager. Bill shankly a source something in clements and signed him in nine hundred sixty seven scunthorpe for the warping fee of eighteen. Thousand pounds also entered interesting to know signed in the same general timeframe From scunthorpe united was another absolutely great player that also was scouted by excuse me also was scouted by Bill shankly. we're talking of course about kevin keegan. Who moved to liverpool Just a few years later played at scunthorpe. Nineteen seventy Ray climates move to liverpool in nineteen sixty seven but obviously scunthorpe united was a hotbed overcrowding for bill shankly so right clements goes to liverpool and plays at liverpool in its glory in its halcyon days in his glory days. In the great era of liverpool football club club late sixties through the seventies. He left in one thousand nine hundred. Eighty one Largely as a result of well part of it was Already had four hundred and seventy caps as hundred and seventy appearances for liverpool. But he was getting a lot of pressure in goal from bruce grobbelaar who was another liverpool legend. But i decided at that time that he would move to tottenham hotspur where he played another two hundred and forty games over a seven-year period. I mean this large man and he was six foot. Which for the time was a big player. Okay not just a goalkeeper but an aggressive goalkeeper and one who really saw that his job in goal was to be more than just stand between the sticks that he was really acted. A lot is swept up the mess that the defenders couldn't get no just stop the shots in gold really a goalkeeper far ahead of his time he. When it came to england he had sixty he had a sixty three sixty three caps for england. But the problem that he had for england was you know he. He was an england goalkeeper. At the time. The great pepitas shelton was in england goalkeeper. So you know it was. He was sort of the second choice to peter. Shilton and He probably would have had more than the sixty four. So capcity had If if peter shilton hadn't have been there. His numbers were absolutely stupendous with liverpool. He won the league five times. Seventy two seventy five seventy six. Seventy eight seventy nine he wanted. Fa copy a league cup he won. What four five charity shields. Three european cups. We talk about the great age of liverpool. His final season eighty eighty one. They won the european cup. Seventy six seventy seven. Seventy seven. seventy eight keep in mind in four years. Liverpool won the european cup three times. He wants to uefa cups a supercup. He also the fa cup. The charity shield. In the uefa cup with tottenham look the man was an absolute legend and played at that time in liverpool as i mentioned when it was the stuff of legends. If you take if you think about the players that ray clemence played with. We're talking about roy evans emlyn hughes tommy smith and phil thompson. And steve heighway kevin keegan tauscher. Think about that. For a this guy played on the legendary teams of liverpool football club and his era transcended this great teams of the early seventies. All the way to the great teams of the late seventies utah when bob paisley was at the helm. You talking about kenny. Dalglish david fairclough terry. Mcdermott one of my absolute favorite midfield is by the way Ray kennedy we I'm just trying to think who else is on those great teams of him. I'm sure i'm missing a few guys. Alan hansen and you know the interesting thing is If you look back at the makeup of those teams everyone on those teams was english. I think the seventy seventy one team was pretty much. Everyone was english. Maybe with The with one or two exceptions From wales if. I'm not mistaken and i'm just trying to think who would have been. Who would not have been english. Our topic was welsh. Oh yes tv. Highway was irish and maybe a one of my listeners. A welfare will joke my memory. I can probably look it up if i have time. But you know how times have changed. How type of change in the errors of football and this is one of the things one of the legacies one of the memories. A of of a legend. Like ray clemence when you get to look back at the cycles of change in football which as you know is something that i talk about a lot on this show the cycles of change in football not only did he play in the great era when when english teams dominated europe of course up to high school and then off to heissel english teams were banned for a period of time from european football and that was sort of the great change over you so the big spanish teams have dominate for years and years in the european cup. When you saw the english team struggle to rebuild their european pedigree which of course now they fully regained and out of that you also saw the emergence of the premier league era and manchester united as the dominant force and the and the The change in the game in an of itself as a result of hillsborough. Where of course they got rid of the terraces and standing and they went to individual seat mandates and the individual seat tickets and the the price started pricing the sort of element the the the element that had been the glue the supporters glue football out and football started to become a bit of the prone cocktail crowd. See really saw this whole that. Whole era between sixty seven when ray clemence joins liverpool all the way through eighty-one when he leaves and goes to talk them through the mid eighty sue high salt through the changes you get into the ninety s you start to get into the premier league premier league era ray clemence really represents the end of the old era of english football and of course the advent of the pre league era. You start to see a completely different makeup of teams to the days. When you're going to have a squad of entirely english players need can have a couple of welshman an irishman and maybe a scotsman thrown in there of course if you're in the us and you don't understand these countries they're all part of the united kingdom but they're all different countries so it's fascinating when we look and on the passing of this legend and i never met him but from everything i've heard and being told he was an absolutely lovely guy a humble humble man Thought of others love the clubs that he came from and was loved as well. I mean it's very rare. That the stories of ray climates playing for tottenham going to anfield and when he's playing in front of the cop in goal for the opposition team. His name is being sas sung by the fans in tribute. So there's a lot to be said about the man. And but his pulsing really can bring us full circle to the changes in the game since his day and they have been absolutely monumental changes are made. I remember up. Starting to follow liverpool in nineteen seventy one seventy two The great teams clements. Obviously part of those teams so for me personally I'm not look. it's sad. Because he was seventy two years old he was relatively young man. But i'm smiling. Because i get to look back and remember some of the great memories of my youth when it really is unbelievable to think how much sport has evolved and changed in the time since ray clements. And of course. I mentioned right.

We added a whole bunch of bad news about more crackdowns and stupid coverted madness in spreading insanity last night but tonight we got some good news. And i'm excited about it. New hampshire is the number one most economically free state of the united states. According again to the fraser institute With you tonight. It's ian and mark frazier. Institute i believe is a canadian and north and And you united states based enterprise. If i recall. I think tank basically i know they do the thing on north america as opposed to doing the united states so they actually break it down based on the states and they have a separate one for mexican states and i believe also for canadian so i don't know if they mix them. I think they do have like a mixed list as well. I suspect the united states does pretty well on that. Yeah i mean new hampshire does very very well. Obviously because new hampshire is the most economically free Last year new hampshire was also number one with a score out of potato. I believe the potential score is ten and a new hampshire. Got eight point one three last year and this year it has increased score a little bit to eight point one six out of ten so i guess my question is on the freedom of the world. I believe the fraser institute does one of those two And i've also released that recently as well. And on that chart as i recall the united states comes in behind canada. No actually canada maybe. Us moved up because according to the economic freedom of the world the most recent one was published so just to be clear with publish just this month but i have. The numbers are from two thousand eighteen right. There's no way to predict the future or you know these sorts of things. These economists have to go through the numbers. It takes quite some time to come up with it. So the the twenty. Want the end of two thousand and twenty. They released the twenty eight hundred numbers. Essentially and twenty twenty.

"Seventh and eighth on between first and second avenue like literally across street is alphabet city over there but it was just so much fun and i think as an american you really gotta go to new york city just because everything you've seen your whole life and tv and the movies and all the the league's you know. Nba and h all. These are all headquartered in new york. Ride it's basically the capital are de facto capital of the country. But for all the time all these places. I've been i mean all the time i spent in london and paris and rome and all. I spent two weeks in rome when i was eighteen. I mean just all these places. But i never really spent a considerable amount of time and in new york city so i spent two weeks just quote unquote as a new yorker right. I mean i wasn't going to work every day. But it's just so fun and i know people people don't like new york they think it's crazy and I'm sure if you live there get on your nerves after a while just like any big city. Would you know but there's just nothing like it. There are only a couple of places where you just being on the streets. You feel like a rockstar. I just and plus if you're from you know if you were born and raised in richmond and you own two different houses in oakland like i do. You're not scared by brooklyn we if you if you come from some lily white town you might be scared bushwick and you know not saying you should be like skipping down the street at three. Am you're an idiot if you do that. Anywhere really but Anyway good to talk to charlie out one eight hundred eight seven eight play Speaking of the nba They there was a report from the league. A couple days ago they put out about their new covid. Nineteen rules and penalties. Have you seen in the nfl. The raiders have already forfeited about a half a million dollars. A sixth round. Pick saints have been hit as some other teams as well but the nba put out a health and safety memo. Now doesn't a memo usually mean one page or maybe two or three pages with a staple in it this memorandum this memo a hundred and fifty eight pages and so what they did. You'll remember at disneyland or disney world in florida was a massive financial and logistical undertaking. Let they pulled it off outside of a guy going down across the street to pick up some food or somebody going home for a family You know crisis. They pulled it off. But that will not be this case this season and we've already seen with warrior's camp for mentioned. James wiseman has co raymonde green has covert nineteen so even with the best possible protocols. The pandemic is spreading at such an alarming rate. Right now that the infections are just going to be essentially unavoidable now with these teams. They're going to be traveling. City the city and there's going to be players coaches team officials And the way those two with the warriors they were just part of the forty eight players that tested positive in the nba as they were coming into camp forty eight so one hundred and fifty eight page health and safety document because the stakes are very high so the nba is putting out a pretty draconian warning about severe punishments. Natron wasn't arouse give. Espn says the nba has worn teams that protocol violations lead to corona virus spread impacting opposing teams and causing scheduled. Derailments could result in fines suspension. Suspensions adjustment or loss of draft choices and game forfeitures for players violating protocols. This season the league warrants at the possibility of in-season quarantined and reduced paychecks. Loom posssibility while the memo doesn't outline the length of quarantines at says any such player may be subject to a proportionate adjustment to pay for any games missed during the period that the players in quarantine and undergoing testing due to engaging in such activities or conduct. Now here's the thing what if jackass jones goes to the club makes it. Rain makes out with three strippers coughs. All over these other guys. And then all these meth heads cough on him comes in and gets everybody sick. And now you're gonna miss a game and miss out on your paycheck and he said players who engage in such activities. Well you can get side of. I mean Mba of the orlando magic. Speaking of orlando got cove in june. He says he is still dealing with side effects and he has no timetable. You his return. This is a young guy who just got picked two years ago in the draft. And that's the thing. A lot of kobe will not a lot but there have been several cases people who have the krona virus who have been long-term cases and so that's why the nba is stressing. Look what's happening to the nfl and that's way more possible basketball because the nfl flies eight times a year. The nba is going to be flying. What more than thirty times a year to different cities. They're just saying if you get sick you're going to have to pay. That's gonna sound great all right. I'm rick it'll come home.

Dropped my phone. What how about this and we heard this a couple of days ago to the night commission would like to see major college. Football formed their own vision and separate from the ncaa. You talk about earth shattering. That would be it now. We heard that right. Why would that be the new football entity by the way they've already got a name for it. The nci the national college football association and the national football college association would be made up of all the subdivision schools. One hundred and thirty schools and they would be funded by the college football playoffs so much money in the playoffs. Make interesting so the new group would manage all issues related to education health safety litigation eligibility revenue revenue distribution everything. That would leave. The ncaa governed only basketball as its major revenue generating sport at d. one. It would continue to oversee all other called minor sports at that point that so the way the ncaa is made up of eleven hundred schools free hundred and fifty plus those play basketball so the recommendations or shared with the ncaa president mark amer and they did not have a comment yet so this night commission has been around for over thirty years. It is a reform reform minded college. Athletics watchdog organization. That's based in washington. Dc and the commission. They used to have this long standing frustration that the bold vision and the power five conferences of a weighted advantage on nca voting issues particularly when it comes to the revenue distribution and despite the ncaa not sponsoring a championship and The night commission. Co-chair duncan was the secretary of education. Under obama said quote this governance structure has been broken. It's been disproportionately controlled by those with a small interest in not looking out for every athlete in every sport and quote so if there was a breakaway from ncaa by major football schools And we've speculated that for years but you know criticism of lack of faith and the ncaa from all the members especially during the pandemic. I don't think this move is imminent major college. Sports are reaching a tipping point the. Ncaa is defending multiple lawsuits attacking the amateurism model. You know about that and california's well. We're the northwestern team. Couple years ago. I was going to boycott unless they got paid as athletes not just under scholarship. The name image likeness rights with the o'bannon case. We had that and now a lot of states have okayed making money off your likeness. As far as like olympic athletes would sponsorships. You're not professional athlete. But you can get paid for holding up a can of coke. Whatever wearing ski boots athlete. Empowerment is there is and the the schools are increasingly trying to go to the federal government and trying to keep the status quo so the night commission contends that the ncaa governance is no longer keeping pace with this rapid commercial growth particularly football. So if you create the ncaa it would end. The ncaa is what they call quote financially dysfunctional system of governance where the ncaa absorbs expenses for major college football without receiving financial benefits specifically. The commission says the ncaa is on the hook for fps expenses and enforcement catastrophic insurance legal services health and safety administration without sharing in the playoff riches. You say well. How much does how much did the the playoffs make. Four hundred seventy five million dollars per year in meteorites revenue from espn eighty percent. That goes the power five so the ncaa derives more than eighty percent of its annual revenue from march madness. So the new model would recognize. Ncaa governance around basketball's well all division one schools have one thing in common. They all offer the sport of basketball. That's the only sport that has one hundred percent of the members offer and that will fund the ncaa's operation after that. I know this is a little bit boring. we're going to finances and such things and it's sometimes it's hard to follow the money deep throat but if the ncaa breaks off i mean if the nc f. a. breaks off from the ncaa. They believe that the association would then adhere more to the core principles of higher education. So a commission member. Jacques mcclendon who works for the los angeles. Rams he said quote what we're trying to recommend here is not the wild wild west. What we see is an opportunity for better alignment. Cfp operates outside of the ncaa power five sits on the fringe of the ncaa for better or worse quo so the recommendations will be presented. The ncaa presidential forum made up of one ceo from each of the thirty two year one conferences. And this kind of thing like in the senate. All states are equal and house. Representatives states are unequal based on their population. I think that's a pretty. And i know the greek started it but it's a pretty genius way of looking at things you know. Why is why is california. Not worth more than vermont. Well in the house it is based on how many citizens you have in the senate. It's not every stake. It's two senators so when you get when you have the ceo's of all thirty two ones conferences at that point where like the senate and the night co chair. Carol cartwright said often we've made recommendations people have thought were pie in the sky but as more people have gotten into the discussions here the ideas have taken hold and by the way. They said they did a poll and they said sixty one percent of pie. Power five schools supported breaking away. Now they did this now. This isn't amateur sports. But i remember in nineteen ninety two when the premier league broke away from the football you form. It was basically to form their own tv deals and they went from twenty two teams to the present twenty and they thing i don't understand is up. The system relegation and promotion would remain the same but it has and those teams in lower divisions. Get way less money than they used to weigh. Less more of the money goes to the big teams which is the way they had a designed in the first place so to somebody keep in mind not so much this exact issue but just the fact that as i said. Athlete empowerment is on the rise. And you know if they split away. I could not care less if they split away or not doesn't affect me. We just wanna watch college football right right.

I made it was not a child star. Who went nuts. Well yes. I mean i guess you put it that way. Yeah yeah. I do feel very fortunate to continue to be able to do what i love to do. I started acting when. I was nine years old as a hobby. My mom told me you know like jennifer you came. You can do this as long as you go to school. And you keep up your grades and then you know i started looking stuff and then it just ended up. you know. I wanted to do this as a career and so now having my own child. I'm just. I'm very very thankful to have been able to sustain a career And guys it's it's a. It's amazing. So i'm really excited about This new project. I have those holly which comes out this saturday I six seven central on i on television And i love christmas movies. I feel very fortunate and blessed that we were able to film this during a pandemic And so that makes it even more special You know that we were able to do something that we really love to do. Christmas movie is obviously a very happy movie about love and and so So we really wanted to be able to put a smile on people's faces during this holiday season so i hope that everyone will tune in and watch. Let's about the plot. You are obviously holly the main protagonist and you have a fiancee. Who kind of starts to lag. And you make a new friend kind of summit up. Yes i holly. I own a greeting card store. I'm a bit of a type a personality. I i'm one of those people. Who has you know. Every year planned out matt out vision board. This is what we're doing each year by the book. And you know as we all know that way She you know has just plan to get married because she has you know things to do and the you know this this plan for her life and her boyfriend she proposes and he ended up saying he wants to go with that she planned. This in this This engagement trip for them. It's like romantic holiday. And she ends up you know. She already paid for it so she ends up. You know going on the trip Anyway and the slave-driver is johnny car- his character's name is jake he He is her like tour guide around the city and while she's saying there and he is the complete offer were will and they're gonna. He is sweet. He is adventures carrying kyw. He's just a really good guy and Know with all the christmas movies they can kind of where. This is going I it's it's such a sweet movie it's really It's just it's a really. He'll get you in the christmas spirit. Answer is they're really cute. Little story and for people by speaking with jennifer freeman the name of the bows holly on ion on tv on television. People who don't know it started off as pax tv and that was the owner bud paxson but it was supposed to be like he's tv and you know not a lot of crazy stuff. Then it was rebranded independent tv and then ion kinda took off on maybe about a dozen years ago but this is getting a lot more distribution in the last five years. Doesn't i think it has been. And i think you know. I think they do really good job with their. You know holiday movies and and stuff. So i'm really excited to be able to Apart and the ion television home for the holidays christmas family. You're also a stage actress. And i'm thinking about dream roles for a young girl and dorothy and the wizard ease on down ease on down the road. I'll fun was own. My gosh. yeah that was yeah. I mean i was definitely very little Yeah i mean. I started acting when. I was very young so i was seeing around the house. And you know my mom was just like what is wrong with this kid. You know like. I mean i was all i did. I know every child is bad. But like i was on a thousand. You know and So i love the stage and that was a a movie. I always watch with my mom so so. That was a lot of fun so last question for you. I remember hearing say that. When he first started acting he would show up for an audition. He said there would be ten guys. Looked exactly like me. And i thought how am i going to get a park. Oh yes you're very beautiful. But you get the hollywood and you have to separate yourself from the other pretty faces and you have to do it with your acting prowess so how were you able to become such a good actress. Thank you you know. Even you know. I think it's really just about having confidence and in who you are because right you know they're like you said there's a million girls who are beautiful or just like you you know and i really think it's just about being authentically yourself because if you you know it's you that sets you apart from the other person no matter what that other person looks like. It's your essence. If you know gifts that god is giving you. And so it's just trusting and relying on that and not really on your physicality everything else and that's really trying to you know be vulnerable. I think i ended the day. It's really just you know you know. Leaving people with the sites of who you are and I think the best actors and actresses you know that we watch that is why like them like angelina. Jolie you know. She is one of my favorite actresses. But i you know we like her. I love her because she's so wrong. Vulnerable in any character plays. She's you know she's angelina in that you know character and really just showing her truth so that That i think it's just about being you know being true to yourself and and not and not being in competition with anyone else and not looking at it in that way and just you know just shining you know and and that's not why you know we're we're all here very well said jennifer freeman actress. You can see her. Bows of hawley this weekend on i on tv. It's gonna rear on christmas eve as well to ion television com for more information jennifer. Congratulations on the film. Great to have you on the show. And i look forward to having you on again sometime. Thank you so much and merry christmas. Okay thank you And by the way in. I believe it was may or june. We had the director of a movie. Called castles in the ground was an imaging boots movie. I finally saw that a couple of days. Ago is a dark dark dark depressing dark and depressing movie But it's also one of those cases kinda like this lenr. I think the guy that jennifer freeman falls for is not good looking enough for. That's the thing that kills me about. When harry met. Sally billy crystal the way you know. He does not go with meg. Ryan and i love billy crystal such like she would never go for a guy who looked like at. That's what i thought at the time. Now i don't give a damn but anyway it was kind of the same thing that movie castles on the ground like imaging boots would not be going for this kid in real life all right.

By the way we'll have a lotta army navy guests tomorrow rocky bleier and on polian mccallum right a john wall also olympic gold medals swimming star. Joseph schooling gave the competition of schooling. Didn't he. I was just talking about Our ago about how minor league baseball was hind saved and the appalachian and pioneer leagues. But this story just came down. The wire that is there are five minor league clubs in iowa and three have been offered major league. affiliations iowa hubs which has been the aaa affiliate for the cubs for a long time. They have been offered to continue that partnership with the club. The cedar rapid colonels a are corn. They have been and a affiliate of the twins that's low a. that's the midwest league and the quad city river bandits which has been the low. A affiliate of the astros were also offered an invitation by the royals. They said the royals had given up. Idaho falls there's a lot of shuffling going around. That's the good news. The bad news is the future doesn't look bright for two other teams the burlington bees and the clinton lumber kings burlington bees were also And the bees monkeys were both midwest low affiliates miami and the angels respectively the burlington bees were also a couple of times the low a affiliate in the midwest league of oakland as in fact not just a few years ago they were before they switched to the beloit snappers. And i believe that was Vita blue's first professional team where the burlington bees on that team with keith. Lipman believe it or not but So that leaves burlington and clinton had trying to have some other options and that is just trying to join a college summer. Baseball league or trying to weasel their way into an indy league. That's a crushing blow. Both towns and the writing has been on the wall four while we know that baseball america published the forty two teams that were in danger before this and the the the lumber kings and the bees and the river bandits were all on the list and as i said the benefits were able to get themselves off the list from that offer from kansas city. But i just tried to try to figure out more how this helps major league baseball and how. It helps cuts down on cost. I mean that's that's the bottom line. But i just mean you know there's an i don't wanna be so pollyannaish think that older more important things than money when it comes to business and there's not there's just not that's all that matters in business and i don't think that's an evil thing i think that's an unfortunate thing no book this is a It's a democratic country. Were in and this is what we do. You know were allowed to make all the money we want. If we can legally anyway and illegally as bill. Burroughs says that banks is just legalized loan. Sharking and he said a banker can drive his big fancy rolls royce. Down the street and everybody goes well. He's a successful guy but he says if a loan shark does it. Everyone's like oh what a crook and he says a bank is just legalized loansharking. And you'd say well. Yeah i guess that's true away but anyway getting back my point is i just think about these towns. Look if the san jose giants went away which they haven't. But if the san jose giants went to way is going to be fine they'll be fine and not just because they have the sharks. They can drive to see two baseball teams on a football team and major college basketball. Nba everything but you pull a team at some of these cornfields and these dirt towns on these backwaters. It's just it's killer and a lot of them have traditions which go back a hundred years and it's just a it's sad that's i guess. Say look at some of the rumors from the winter meetings today because No last year. When we got to the wednesday of the winter meetings we already had garrett's garrett cole going to the yankees and anthony rendon to the angels This time around. It's mostly crickets outside of the white sox trading for lance lynn. and adam eaton. Let's go down to vegas with our old buddy. Frank what's going on. Frank said that it's becoming decrypted senile and sedentary that the healthiest lifestyle in america But I've been trying to call you monday Actually before but when. I heard the Three raiders that are being nominated for the hall of fame Can you name them for me. Real quick i. Is this breaking news. No it well it it it it was. I just saw the three raiders that have been nominated for the hall of fame. All well hold on. We know off the top of your head. I it's charles woodson. Eric alan and richard seymour. eric allen of course laid for new orleans forever. Richard seymour is going to be known as a patriot. All's woodson began and ended. His career with the raiders. He was a Of course nfl defensive mvp with the with the packers. All right okay. So so they are. But i just never recalled them as raiders that you just answered my my my dilemma. My problem. i'm like i don't i those guys. That them in the raiders. just i. i wasn't connecting the dots You first round. Pick to get seymour. I'm ever he came in and he said old number ninety. Three's going to and they said that numbers taken and he goes. I mean all number ninety two is going to can. I do Yeah i'm looking at the list right now. It's funny this list got Got by me I think. Eric allan is a lock. i think charles woodson is also a lock the way i mean. I wouldn't have said that once he left but the way he came back in the way he ended his career. I think he's lock. And i think richard seymour I think he's gonna make it too. I think all three are going make it. Oh wow okay. I yeah and not to be a a prick so to speak but you know we're not spring chickens and a list getting by you shouldn't shouldn't shock you at this juncture of we're not we're we're not holding The short end of the stick now. But i shall not digressed Did you happen to see The last Forty seconds of the raider game This past sunday entire. I've watched every second of every raider game this year.

That's not a fix. Let is the guy lost his job. You really think he's going to try to end his career. Do you think that cornerback. Who's a fringe player is going to end his career for that. These guys were trying. There was a stupid play. That's the play that was called. These guys didn't have the talent enough to let attract star not get behind them. They were it was not a fix. Okay well well What are the odds. That this Cornerback is going to be picked up by another team. Well he's still there. The defensive coordinator got fired. Okay yeah i i just wanted to hear and you know I i'm not trying to Disparage but I felt after. I saw a two things on raiders. You pop in have. Have you been to allegiant stadium.

Coast to coast and around the world on the american forces radio network. That's right it's serious business. Let's get some of them. Rumors going on at the winter meetings. Usually we have a lot of action going on right now. Not so much higher. L. schwarzer if you think about this last season he's just really sixty games removed from that monster. Second half he had and twenty nineteen and they. Non tendered him. They want to go to with them. This was a guy who hit thirty eight home runs in two thousand nine hundred destroys right handed pitching and there are a lot of people that are interested in college. Warmer one of them are the angels. Because joe maddon loves. I'll schwab over. The yankees. apparently are hot after him. The blue jays as well. Now if you look at this season he hit one. Eighty eight eleven. How do you judge him. Apparently the mets and james mccann the free agent catcher closing in on a four-year deal. According to ken rosenthal. The athletic. they've been connected for several weeks. Mccann was a real breakout last year. Thirty years old head to eighty nine and was an all star and huge power but good defensive guy and kind of tailed off at the end but You know this would obviously plug a hole from the mets in the played and another thing i think is interesting. Is that the korean league. Mvp is moving to japan. Melrose junior was a former pirates third round pick and he never got past aaa america but he won the mvp of k b o it three forty nine with forty seven home runs and one hundred and thirty five rbi in one hundred and forty two games executive you a ticket back to america while we don't know because he has signed a deal with hussien in nippon professional baseball tigers. I believe they are. What does he get for. Forty seven home runs two year. Five mil in. that's chump. Change in america. He's been connected. I've i've heard his name connected with a lot of teams over here. But i mean look at eric themes and yes. He doesn't say tens themes is a guy went to korea mashed and then came back mel row. Haas look i can understand going to japan. It's a high profile league than korean baseball organization. Years fight i can't sneeze at five million dollars still at a little bit surprising. So anyway as i said last year at this time garrett cole and steven anthony rondonia signed big money with the yankees and angels respectively. Stephen strasburg signed a big deal to stay in washington d. c. But you just wonder how much they're going to have to work out these teams like if you look at dj lemay batting tile. A lot of people think that lemay who will be the first ship to fall before bauer before a springer before rail muto. We'll see apparently the yankees wanna reunion. Lemay he wants a reunion so you'd probably think four years eighty mill without workout for him and his age. Cleveland is still looking for their big time. Trade for francisco. Lean door can't wait to get rid of them. Doing everything they cut. Brad hand is because he Had a million dollar buyout. It's amazing how cheap they are. It's an f. door does get traded. Will it happen in the winter meetings. Lewke bates Mookie betts did not get traded till february and. That could be the same type of thing. The indians are really trying to trade carlos carrasco as well highest paid players. He's owed a twenty seven million dollars over the next two years in. Cleveland is pretty deep in pitching. They have the best pitching development in baseball right now. I mean if you look at their rotation shane bieber. Who won the cy young. You take crass go out. Then it'd be zach. please act. Aaron volley vista mackenzie. who's awesome. Cal was a first round pick. And you have scott moses and logan allen and this is the team that got rid of. Trevor bauer corey kluber and mike cleverer and then carlos cross goes next and that's fine to give up all that great pitching if you're bringing in amazing talent right but if you think about the free agent pitching market i mean charlie morton off aboard marcus. Stroman is off the board so really bauer only has to compare himself to jacob disease masahiro tanaka and there's no comparison so if you put on the trade market leland should be able to get some sort of hall for him. Hit the word hall and there should be get a lot of like. Oh what a hall. We got quality over quantity across going to reach ten years of service time in april which will give him ten and five a full. No trade and cleveland does not want that to happen because then they can't trade him without his consent so they're gonna be desperate to get rid of him. I you look at the blue jays shapiro. They were the guys that drafted him when he was with cleveland. They're thinking about Rondo in cross signing michael bradley signing jock peterson citing george springer. The not gonna get all those guys. The catching market will begin. Moving as i said with mccann. Kate mccann's sciences deal with the mets. Now what happens. I would think yadi return to the cards and he can no longer. Pretend that the yanks and the mets are interested at this point is mccain is in the books. Gary sanchez is still viable. I guess but the phillies move on for mutoko and think about getting a catcher. Really contraire us from the cubs. They can get back on. Catcher needy race still need to Bring in some guys as well. I mean i don't forget. Mystery teams can pop in remember. The tigers were the ones that got von rodriguez after losing a hundred nineteen games. You never know what's going to happen. Also a name to remember from asia is samsung. Kim was officially posted days ago. And he is the shortstop of the key wound heroes and korea and he'll now have thirty days to negotiate and sign a contract People are already saying that He's going to go. The mariners which i don't think the mariners have crawford I think a destination for kim would be a team like the as we're going to be losing marcus simeon but remember tried this guy Very him as a hero. I can't remember his name anymore but he didn't even get above double aa. Didn't even get above double a for the as when they brought in superhero us. They're saying this guy wants four years. Thirty six mil is don't pay. You know what's going to happen with shortstop with the as it's going to be chad. Pinder is going to be the starting shortstop. If he doesn't work out they're going to use sheldon noisy and then next year. It's going to be nick allan or robert on all those guys can play. Shortstop pinder has played twenty four games with shortstop They're not going to spend thirty six million dollars on this guy. I'm rick tuttle.

Www dot du goo dot com now available at select the big five stores near you. Are you saying that. I put abnormally brain into a seven and a half foot long fifty four inch wide thanks. This is the only sports talk show that features a rhode scholar. But he ain't here today now. Back to rick tittle back. Could all thank you for that. I was just speaking about five teams in iowa. Three got extended an invitation. The giants have just put out a press. Release that i received. They have invited. Four teams to be their affiliates this year. And they're all going to say yes and not stupid rear the same. The river cats will be triple a. The restaurant of flying squirrels virginia will be double a san. Jose giants will be an low. A colleague new affiliate. Their high team will be the eugene emeralds eugene oregon and or onside he said it's a privilege to extend invitations blah blah blah and at the end. Were excited to now. Have the opportunity to develop the same type of rewarding partnership with eugene. There it is. That's not shoe far from san francisco but beginning us from a lot of other teams on this type of thing. We also have the rule five draft tomorrow and it's not the most exciting day and in the off season calendar but is a way of adding talents and a way of funneling players to the big leagues from its to prevent teams from burying prospects in the minors forever. And i think it's a good idea it really is and if you're serious about getting a guy you have to keep them so once you either get the decision of you have to be put on the forty man roster or be exposed in the rule five and if you do take a guy like i said you have to be on the active. Mlb roster the whole season and if he doesn't stick and you have to offer them back to the old team s mega through waivers. And so you think about guys who are notable roof five guys rod keller Marquette canada tommy canley johan santana believe it or not was one you came. Soria danny. Agla was one of the one of the greats. It's rare for team to carry on the whole year. They said it with nate freimann one year padres by the way three years ago. I had three rule five picks allen cordoba. Miguel diaz and luis torrens. But as i said we'll find out who the rule five guys will be Tomorrow you know there are some names out there that i think you need to be aware of when it comes to the rule five draft and by the way if you want to know what the rule is players who signed it eighteen or younger and a plate at least five professional seasons eligible as our players who signed in nineteen or older and played four professional seasons at that point. You have to put them on the forty man roster or make them available in the rule five draft and teams now pay a hundred grand the select a guy it was always fifty grand one hundred gant and then if you offer them back then you offer them back for fifty grand and there's also a minor league role five which is where i believe the pirates got roberto clementi remember the giants. Got this guy a velez as in a minor league rule five draft. Let if you're looking for guys who are out there. They're not big names. The padres have a guy named lake. Obey chatter about lake batur. He's a guy from. He's a right handed pitcher in double a. and he has a full arsenal paul campbell. A right handed pitcher for the raise was a twenty first round pick. Who was not good at clemson is he. Clemson was seven eight five and they still drafted him and he's on the smaller size but he's in pitching very well in the minors to goyce. The voice right handed pitcher with the dodgers. Dodgers have an embarrassment of riches. This is a guy who was a very interesting relief pitcher. They just don't have room for him and he pico robertson pitcher with the white sox as will kincannon. We'll kincannon is another. Rhp with cws college world series chicago white sox and these are both guys who pitched at the aa. There's no room for them. The to that kind of scare me are parker done. She and brian howard. Because those are two of our. I say with the as i say a fan that they're two of our best minor league pitchers and there's just not enough room. There are a couple of guys on the forty man. But there was talk about brian. Howard or parker done she being called up it's I would not be surprised to see either of those to go. They were pretty high. Picks to the dodgers have an infielder omar estevez who has been a a shortstop most of his moved to second base but a aa last year at twenty two years old. He hit two ninety one. Said the dodgers have too many good player. He ej friedel outfielder with the reds twenty. Five years old when you get the twenty five and you haven't been to the big yet. They're of they kinda give up on you. People say he's brett gardner sam. Fold that kind of tells you where it is for him. A guy named ever moya. That's right. ev er moya honor. Forget i was. I had a call screener. Tell me one time job that even was on the phone i said is this even like even steven he goes no. I'm evan. somebody screening to know that. Evan was e. v. a. n. even this guy's twenty one years old six foot five left hander and is from the dominican summer league the rockies don't have room for them packing naughton an irish name for you. A left handed pitcher from the angels. He came part of the brian. Goodwin trade with the Reds and they say he has one pitch a changeup. Well you can't have a change of have a fastball. To or won't work a couple more pitchers here. David parkinson a lefty with phil's riley pint righty with the rockies. Jose alburto rivera right handed pitcher with the rockies guy who signed it Eighteen years old then. The yankees have a guy named trevor steven which is understand. That was the guy who used to play for tottenham in england. Whatever stephen has been on the radar because he's been a third round pick three years ago and his got some deceptive mechanics. But they don't have enough room for him nor did the yankees have room for garrett whitlock and other right handed pitcher who was very good at aa but then had tommy john surgery last year. But could you keep a guy like that around for a long time and then a right handed pitcher with tampa bay name tyler. Zalm bro z. O. m. biaro and another deceptive guy lower slot righty in the low nineties and They call him the pitching nerd That's always a plus by the way the pitching nerd just means somebody. Who's like when i call myself a comedy nerd way into comedy. A pitching nerd is actually a compliment. It's like saying that you think a gym rat like chris. Mullin was a gym rat. I to get their last to leave. That's the kind of thing rat. Like army brat. Army brat. sounds like a pejorative. It just means your dad moved around your mom. Whatever it was but anyway the rule five draft tomorrow and none of those names would be like as would acquire. That'd be like. Oh that's cool. I'm all fired up now. Not fired up and ever you can draft a guy and then trade him to which is what the marlins padres did how the guy canada who san jose cal but when you think about the the straying from convention and that is that You know our rosters are set but the thing about the whole thing about you know saying how poor they are with the loss of revenue. This is getting a guy for one hundred grand you know. And that's a lot of money. You me but major league teams. That's nothing and if you're looking at your roster right now and you see guys or making a million two million three million. As i said the. The indians gave up their top catching prospect. The top catching prospect and all baseball francisco a couple years ago to get brad. Hand the all star closer from the audra and they cut him to save a million dollars. Who's to say. They can't draft. Parker done she or Howard and plug into the rotation and say okay. We don't need to pay crass go anymore. Now they have enough candidates for. That's probably a bad example. But any team could do that right now. And you just think about years and years of drafting a guy scouting him developing him into what he is and then team goes. Yeah i'll take him. But that's your own fault for not finding a spot on the forty man roster and if you lose a really good player at better be everybody ahead of them as much better at. I'm ricky has county used to call me come on back. I'm sports him. So this is jesse's o'reilly auto parts story as a nurse.

The milwaukee brewers who never wanted to leave nashville seven years ago and then got the boot when the as came in and then went to the class aaa sounds and then went to the san antonio missions will the missions have shifted to aa which means the brewers are now back in nashville will be boxy and yes pronounce it like a you baloch. Luxy high class was kansin. Low class a carolina. Oakland a.'s have invited four teams to the party and They're going to be keeping the stockton ports And the midland rock hounds. And the las vegas eighty aviators except rock councilmen. Aa in the texas league the aviators belong will remain in aaa the pcl but the ports go to low way. In fact i just texted redfield will to make sure he said yes. There are low a. Their new high team just mentioned that the giants new height team is eugene emeralds new high team for the as are the lansing lug nuts the lansing lug nuts which were in the midwest league. They were low a. The toronto blue jays for the last fifteen years. So they could brag about guys like boba shad vlad junior kevin bijou does well david forest the gm of oakland said. We're truly excited to partner with tom. Dixon and the lansing lug nuts as the new high a affiliate of the oakland a.'s. Lug nuts maintain a first class environment for minor league baseball at jackson field with a city and fan base. That will support the as future major leaguers for years to come i look forward to officially welcoming lansing the as family when baseball resumes in the spring of twenty twenty andy shore the mayor of lansing says the lansing. Lug nuts are an incredible organization and anchor and lansing throughout the mid throughout mid michigan mid michigan. We are excited for this potential next stage and to be affiliated with a wonderful team and city of oakland california we look or to the next and future of minor league baseball here in lansing. There's thank you just be happy that you're you have any affiliation and this is what this owner dixon said which is true quote what it was first reported that forty two minor league teams will be eliminated. We were inundated by concerns from our fans and sponsors. These were tumultuous months leading up to today. We can now strongly assure everyone who loves and cares about the lug nuts that today's new shows how we are regarded within professional baseball. Our future is stable and secure though. This team started off in the mid nineties. It was royals cubs and i mentioned the last fifteen years the blue jays they have produced one hundred and fifty four major leaguers. They have won two midwest championships. So the thing about why would you go to lansing michigan. The lug nuts where the first ever class a team at any level the draw over five hundred thousand fans so they are supported. I can tell you that now. Our friend robert Is a tigers fan out there. He just tweeted at me What the tigers have decided to do. And they've kept all their teams from last year except one and that is a team in connecticut. The norwich and not northridge as they say in england norwich see unicorns. The uniforms have put out a statement which says the see unicorns learned today. Twelve nine through a press release and social media post put out by the detroit tigers that the team will no longer being affiliate of the detroit. Tigers moving forward norwich see unicorns statement. We are extremely disappointed by the news that we will no longer be affiliated with the detroit. Tigers dodd stadium is a first class facility energized by first class fans both young and old that deserve the ability to fall in love with the game either for the first time or all over again we are in the process of evaluating all options in hopes to be able to continue to provide quality affordable baseball for our great fans for years to come as soon as they're and update. We will share it with you immediately. That is pretty messed up. That norris found out about it from a press release You know that's life in the big city they say that's the real world that does suck but the way what nor just said in that press release is what a lot of cities are saying today and there's a lot of shock and disbelief. Do you think the stockton ports wannabe low a. Now but you think they're happy that they're still involved and they're still fade -ffiliated with a big league team. They're over the moon so they're going to get a quality of player. That's going to be a little bit lower. That's all it's going to change for them. Do you think ports fans are not gonna go anymore because they went from high to low a. no now teams like i mentioned fresno they were told if you want to stay you gotta go from aaa to low way and going into colleague and they at first they said screw that noise and then like okay go out of existence in and i. You know it's like do you. If you're a girl do you want to go to the prom with the biggest ass jerk and the whole school. no okay. Well then you're not going to the prom. Well i kind of wanted to go. I mean that's a bad example. But yeah you're you're it's i would put it in like when people would tell me like Like a How come you know you're you're not on the air every day and primetime like i'm on the air you know i could cry about what i don't have. I'm on the team k. I worked there. I'm on the team. I'm on the air you know and you just got to be happy about that. You always want to get better. And strive and i've never had a raise in my life outside of i worked in. Tv i got mad raises on radio now not end for this for the money. You're interested because you like it right. I keep telling myself. These affiliates are getting screwed. There's no doubt so the ones that are still around. All you can do is just lap your hands and say thank goodness. We're still here and you don't have to worry about that anymore. Right as we just heard the press release From the team say and One team saying we can't believe it and other team saying Now i can believe it all right We got a call earlier from frank about the names for the professional football hall of fame. They put out a list of twenty five semifinalists. Why miss it was put out on thanksgiving day. The hell is that it was put out on thanksgiving. It must have been part of the football coverage and i didn't watch a single snap. That's why i missed it. I apologize. I'll try and catch that next time but here is the list of this. Go through it. Real quick. And the twenty-five eric allen jared allen willie anderson rhonda barbara cronulla spin it tony boselli the right butler alan janika rodney harrison township. Whole calvin johnson. John lynch peyton manning clay matthews samuels. Richard seymour steve tasker retailer zach. Thomas hines ward reggie. Wayne patrick willis charles woodson darren woodson bryant young. I just listed off that. Whenever i do this for baseball i lift. Lift off so many schmucks like this year. Even though he was just on my show a couple of weeks ago like nick swisher name shouldn't be on there right but they're not too many knicks wishers. On here now there are a couple of john. Lynch does not belong in the hall of fame. Throw him out. Ron day barber. No way some of these other guys like be wise not going to get in. But he'll be in the nine hall of fame. Patrick willis retired too early. But i think he is hall of fame. Talent reggie wayne and hines ward. Aren't inya couple of these guys are slam dunks. You hear peyton manning. He's in matron. Calvin johnson mega truck goes in. I can't believe twenty percent. He's not in. I can't believe that. Alan panic is not already on their rodney. Harrison has a good case. Torry holt now or hold very exciting with the greatest show on turf. He's not going. In jared allen not enough sacks. I'm sorry eric alan. Yes willie anderson told. You could see that cornelius bennett. Basically the best linebacker on a team that went to four straight super bowls. They never won. T be there clay matthews. I could see going in. But he didn't get a lotta love before. Sam mills. Now steve tasker. Get outta here with your special teams. Fred taylor in the hall of the very good really wayne i mean do you put you. Put the paint manning. And you don't put reggie wayne. I mean i think reggie wayne gets in. Yes you could totally put peyton manning in and not in reggie wayne and then you know darren woodson very good player. Not enough charles. Woodson said heisman trophy winner. First round pick. I went to a raider. Draft party jumped up and down. I couldn't believe we got him now. I only defensive player to get a heisman. Didn't end well with the raiders. Went to the packers was an mvp. When he came back to the raiders he came back and different man. He was a grown man. And i'll never forget the respect. I have planned for a bad raider team in his was hanging by attendant. And he was just sticking his head into every tackle this headfirst bam not on my watch now like every db today which dives at your ankles even a guy like jonathan abram who hit so the raiders. He's still stuck his elbows to his chest and try and bounce. You oughta bounced charles. Woodson would hit you and wrap you up at the same time. And as i mentioned patrick willis is one of the best linebackers of his generation. I mean you can't put in brian. Urlacher put practice willis but after willis is a guy who was probably a little under the radar because As i said you know he wasn't highly touted coming out of high school. He wasn't super superhighway. Tele coming out of college when he was still pick mike. Nolan fell in love with the guy at the senior bowl. Had to remember him telling the story about going to notre dame and he said he walked into a room and they saw. Jimmy clausen go. Jimmy come here and they completely ignored him. They didn't even say hi to them he goes. I don't wanna go to school higher. If notre dame could only have that back. Let's thing they would say.

Live a mike zimmer. V also wrestling observer dot com. Tonight is noted we have got ten segments announced for the annex or the awa show enemy talking about. Aws tony shivani interviews sting special interview with the new awa champion. Kenny omega the inner circle ultimatum shack l- addressee double universe with tony shivani orange cassidy versus mj for the dynamite diamond. Ring young bucks vs jack evans. And where the challenges win a title match lance archer pinta henry phoenix versus kingston butcher blade. Fdr versus griff garrison and brian film junior dustin rhodes versus ten aba. Don it action now as we'll make everybody mad problem not mine. Normally the wednesday show is all about eight w versus inex- t but to me somehow. I'm so much more. Invested in aws versus an impact wrestling. Then an xt. Now if you want to get mad at me go for it but to be friendly during the break. I tried with all my might to find out what was going on on the next show tonight. Nothing announced except finn. Ballard announced that he is returning to its litterbox. Do not get mad at me. Those were his words at x. T is the litterbox. That's what fin valor said in his. Promo what else is going on tonight. Far from takeover. Well i wouldn't twitter nothing. Nothing announced except for valor returning when tea instagram. I keep being told you want to find out what's on the show instagram. I go instagram nothing. Zilch finn bella returning to its litterbox. It's all i know about tonight. But i did notice kind of a little bit of an aside but i thought it was funny before the takeover plus it all things on instagram and one of the things they posted was one of those little videos and the video is of a wheel spinning okay and there's a spinning wheel and the caption was. Where do you think it will land for. Tonight's triple threat. Match with damian priest johnny gargano and leeann rough. It's a little spinning wheel and the spinning wheel has four options. You ready for this option. One is damian. Winds option to is leeann wins option. Three is gargano wins. You wanna guess what option four was count out. What since. When can you get counted out at three way. So anyway there's rules every day in me. That i didn't know about today's rule is apparently according to ed exte- on their instagram posted by them. You can be counted out in a three way. Learn something new every day. I didn't learn what's on the show tonight but learn about that rule. So anyway mike. Did you watch the incredible interview segment with kenny. Omega don. callous. That's josh mathews impact last night. Don't even tell me no depending on who you are. There were three stooges sitting there on that bus. My picture of two stooges right behind on the shoulder there but Yeah i saw the that interview. And i saw the paid advertisement that tony kahn. Antoni shivani had so. I did see that. I didn't see the rest of impact. But i did see those two segments so the segment was so great. They're all on a bus. Josh matthews. is there kenny. Omega kenny omega normally shows up to aid l. Either in his gear or in his pajamas but now he's got some sort of wacky designer jeans. He wore a semi nice shirt. He wears his aviator's old time. He's got like some bracelets on and he's celebrating about all his linke's wearing he's the greatest. Don callous fantastic. I got so many emails. Last night is is day was talking about on the show. Little while ago don callous grew up a big fan of bobby. Heenan nick park winkle. And i had so many people that sent me texan emails last night. Oh my god. If you remember bobby hedonistic bach winkle they said you gotta watch this segment calluses the best. They're just varying impact. Kenny omega. So cocky such a great. He'll apparently the idea is kenny. Omega may in fact become the belt collector. Because he's got the w title they acknowledge. These got the triple a super omega heavyweight title. But she better not lose by the way. You actually goes down to triple mania. Then don kelsey talk about a lot of great champions here on this show so i think maybe i maybe reading too much into it but that appears to be at least one of the ideas so they do their whole ten minutes. Stick it's great. And then they promised that kenny will be coming to dynamite to make a big announcement why we make a big announcement on this impact show. Even though they gave ten minutes of their time to impact. I thought the whole thing was fantastic and on top of that. They had the paid advertisement with tony. Kahn and tony. Vanni tony kahn. I don't think he's going to be a character on dynamite but clearly idea is. He's the baby face owner of dynamite. But like vince mcmahon memphis. He goes to this this low level impact show and he's a total. He'll i couldn't stop kenney said. Maybe i'll even buy this company. Ask tony you ever worked for impact. Tony says once eighteen years ago. Then i quit the business awesome. I loved it it is the best storyline going and i cannot wait to see where it goes on the show tonight. Anything you'd like to add. You've you've sat back there. Well oh let me guess. You didn't like it that. I didn't say that at all i do. I not reveling in it like you are as the best storyline on earth. But i'll say he was one. Lana sure yes. I'll go. lana there. You go Nothing better okay. Don cal's is great. I mean that's number one. First and foremost he adds a lot. And here's what is true. Kenny omega is not anywhere near the promo nor will he ever be the nick. Bach winkle was but count wise for what he does in the ring this combination as an updated version of a bach winkle in in. I can see whether i can see where they're going with that. And siris or cyrus don callous. As bobby heenan i think is great don callous as kenny's mouthpiece he just sits back there. Arrogant and cocky and smug it's perfect. I mean it is a really a great combination. i don't know if this helps impact. I don't know how much i wanna see tony. Kahn do paid advertisements. Tony kahn needs a cd. Scott there needs to be somebody on that show. So we don't have so much tony and i want to see him. Be the focal point of anything. I don't even want to see him on the screen. I get why he is. But i would love to see somebody else. Kinda take that heat for him. But i don't know if this is really going to help impact. I heard the numbers were ridiculous. They were like ten times ten to twenty times what they normally do. And that's on twitch. Yeah so you know. There were people that tuned in the whole time. That didn't just cherry pick and see the interviews. Like i did so. We'll see if this pays off as things go on and we'll see how much impact a w makes on that show No pun intended over the next couple of weeks here so we'll have to see how everything kinda plays out here. But i guess it's the story line on earth right now. Dude listen if you guys disagree with me. Tell me a better story line in wrestling right now. I mean kenny omega. Yeah he's no. Nick bach winkle. But you know what name a better promo that. Kenny omega has cut in the united states since the beginning of aew like one feel free to tell me if there's a better story line going. Today i like the roman reigns jaso stuff but i talked about on the filthy show like we just keep going in circles with storyline. What's going on here with roman is he. I mean it's all about roman jay. But jay's not the guy who's facing on the pay per view supposed to face kevin owens back in a moment which this is a potter's field.

Alvarez and mike zimmer v on the sports byline broadcasting network man almost flipped my lid. Here good thing. I kept reading that chat right there. So all of a sudden the cheddar route starts typing box versus fdr. I thought they were saying that. That was a better story. Line than this w versus impact storyline. Thus far now is about to lose it. Because if i recall correctly leading into that tag match all people could talk about without their storyline. Made no sense. Why are the bucks heels. Why are they acting helix. Going into a match with you're supposed to be the baby faces well as it turns out to. Niece was doing her trivia and they were just responding to one of her questions. I got a bone to pick with her now. At least because i wasn't paying attention exactly you were paying attention. Maybe paying attention. You might find some better storylines named one. I'm waiting for somebody to name one. I didn't say the best. Reliant of the year i said the best one going on right now right now not last year. I a better one right now. Await mike i was asking for you for everybody out there all right well. I'm not saying that there's a better one out there bryan. We'll find out in a rack my brain and think about it. I'll right you rack. Will i read about the raw ratings. Fifty thousand people for impact stream. Is that what it was about roundabouts. There that's what peaked at thousand. I think it was higher than fifty did. Did very very well run. Monday picked up steam among men lost among women finished overall. Similar one point seven four million viewers in a point five one in eighteen. To forty nine a brawl was fourth an eighteen to forty nine trailing three. Nfl related shows also only trail those shows in may eighteen to forty nine hundred. Thirty four overall. It's cetera so anyway the three hours one point eight five million viewers one point seven eight million second hour and a one point. Five eight million third hour so third hour had a big plunge as usual but it was not an all time low. I figured it would be something like this. I figured that the actually wasn't the fini was bray wyatt but i figured that for whatever reason. I don't even know why people would watch randy orton vs wyatt and they did although not in gigantic numbers but they did save it from being a ms morrison handicap match made event lowest number of all time. So i guess you can celebrate that but there you go that's numbers. I can't believe there was a bigger drop in the second hour. After that first hour went from one point. Eight five to one point seven eight down to one point five eight and it could have gotten a lot faster. Honestly with thou Some of those segments were because there was nothing on raw that that matched up to that interview. I will say that. I thought second was going to die a lot worse because of that ms morrison ms tv segment which was the most annoying thing i have ever seen in my lifetime but one point seven eight million people stuck around after that oh to have such a loyal audience man oh man holy smokes person says i hope there will be some good matches on an xt tonight to ten on the grainy scale matches from takeover man granny. You thought you thought. I didn't like the booking of that women's wargames match. She skewered that match theory to six feet under ready. Yo the garbage can. She hated everything about it. She doesn't like weapons. Here's thing with granny granny. Granny doesn't like the illusion of violence. My point is she watched the dragon of vaulter match and her was like it was a match. What's everyone freaking out about. But you put a trash can on your head and jump off the cage. Trash hates that stuff. So that's cool. That's a granny. Ed stetzer to grainy scale right. There person says no. This can't be true. Somebody find out if this is true but if it's not true it doesn't matter to read it. Billboard just released the most hummed songs of two thousand and twenty and the fiends theme was number. Twenty six is that true. Somebody go find out for me my billboard magazine in front of me hold on let me google search billboard most hunt they actually have guilt google billboard reveal the top one hundred most um songs of the year based on what the hell is this based on. I don't know but this person also said he sent me. Proof in the proof is a blank text. That doesn't help me buddy. Maybe send me a link or something. Google collaborated with billboard to reveal the top one hundred songs hump to google and google assistant old town road by little ause. Xp peachtree billy ray. Cyrus topped the list. Okay i get this now. I guess. I've seen the commercial for this. So this is like she's zam if you don't have the ability to have the music on and you are desperate for song where you harm it into the assessment. It tells you what the name of the song is. Apparently this is true. it's true everybody. Wow ranked a little below baby shark though which actually surprised me. 'cause how can you not know that song but isn't that baby shark song. Was you know like two years ago. That was really bad. They keep doing these. These baby shark remakes about me. I'm dying of thirst. Kennewick lamar swing life away machine gun kelly interesting group here. United by bts s. There you go there. That should should sparked which homeys so also during an appearance on the bump goldberg teased. A match against universal champion roman reigns it was brought up. The goldberg made a brief appearance on the thunderdome wall and anyway he goes on and on. Here's a question. Gobert match with the roman reigns so it appears i mean they announced it that. Tlc is going to be roman. Reigns vs kevin owens. Hopefully they do a better job building up than they did. This past friday on smackdown. So that's tlc then. It appears at some point down the road. It's going to be roman reigns vs daniel bryan. I figured that might be at the royal rumble. The question that is who's gonna face roman reigns at wrestlemainia. Are we going to go back to jail so some. How are we going to try to get the rock. In some reason my gut tells me we're not going to see roman reigns vs iraq is roman reigns. Daniel bryan the wrestlemainia match. They've made nobody on the smackdown brand. Where i think that is. Your roman reigns wrestlemainia match. Is it going to be goldberg. Is that who roman reigns is going to face. Wrestlemainia it if not. What are we looking at for roman rates. I mean his owens going to get one month run. Brian gets one month royal rumble. Goldberg gets a month at elimination chamber. And then you do. That doesn't sound like they're doing any long-term future for roman reigns so. I don't know where this fits in. But they were supposed to do at wrestlemainia last year and it never happened. Maybe the ideas. They'll do it at wrestlemainia this year. I don't know but bray goldberg is scheduled for x. Number two matches a year. Something like that and thanks years coming. So we'll see mansi people talking about see puncture asking him. What will take to get him back in the ring. Colbert saying wants. Roman reigns sustaining Did did tony kahn. Make a statement saying that. He'd like to see sting in the ring or that he we may be seeing him in the ring. I don't remember any statement from tony concept. This thing was going to be in the ring okay. I thought i'd seen that somewhere. Hopefully that's not the case but it's still going to be interesting to see what they decide to do. A sting who on paper can't do anything in the rain. You can absolutely do cinematic matches but certainly can't do anything in the ring. I'm sure goldberg would like to have one more to get any taste of of saudi arabia. I think that may have been his last match. Wasn't you know outta there. You know brock lessner lingers in the background and you have that tie-in with with paul heyman if you wanted to maybe do that if you get brock back and he can get a victory over. Roman reigns or wrestlemainia. I mean the one thing is roman reigns and daniel bryan at the royal rumble makes all the sense in the world for their history in the royal rumble together in the fans. History with roman reigns in the royal rumble. So that makes sense. I mean i guess you could. Have you could have brain win. The title and have roman reigns win it back wrestlemainia. I know that's not a feel-good go home type of thing but have gained o'brien royal rumble. If you don't have a plan in place for goldberg or somebody like that for roman to face and you know. I don't know there's there's things i guess you could do between gang. Bryan roy roman reigns. That would be probably pretty entertaining as long as the story. Line is super solid and gained. O'brien winning the title at wrestlemania from roman reigns. I know kind of goes against you. Know the coronation of roman reigns. I guess but. I mean drew mcintyre is going to be on that shows. It'd be a bunch of people on that show so we'll just have see how it all plays out. But i have a feeling we're going to see them. Go into their bag of tricks as much as they can for a goldberg or a rock or you know which is on the low end of the scale or brock listener which would be a lot more likely you know. I don't know this for sure. But i'm pretty sure that kenny omega is arriving at dynamite tonight in a helicopter because they did the interview last night and they said they were gonna make a spectacular entrance to the show and the hint was lex luger but not a bus. What else could that be a helicopter when he landed onto the intrepid or the yokozuna body slam challenger whatever actually jokes what yolks. I'm just making sure that the twitch chat doesn't have any jokes for our lex luger might make his way in there and comparative kenny omega. Now let how lex luger might make his way in wear. Tell you during the break brian. I'll explain that during my hope. It's not what i think it is. You know that's exactly what it is. That's why i'm trying to wait now. Disgusted listen i think. He's showing up in a helicopter unless anybody can think of any other fantastic entrance. Lugar did which did not involve. I think i think the flat out said the lex express. Maybe they didn't but they. I think they made it clear. No bus entrance land right in the middle of jacksonville. Jaguars field right on the fifty yard. Line you know. They're they're not playing tonight so i think that would be. That would be a spectacular idea and then having to go from a limo over there into the parking lot. I'll be on comes on his skateboard.

Cm punk talk to renee regarding a variety of subjects including unionization twitch and a possible return to the ring when asked about returning to the ring he stressed it was about finding the right scenario without wanting to insult anybody or any either side of the fence and he'd of talent awa talent it would take above all an interesting scenario a story that would be fun to tell also just the stupidest amount of money but they could just themselves a whole lot of money if they just presented a fun storyline. Shall we take bets on whether seeing punk is ever coming back to wrestling. i would take the under When asked about a union punk expressed doubt it would ever happen. No he says and just because no such thing as quote the boys. It's a trope. Oh we're on the road. These people are family. Like i said once you're out of the bubble you don't hear from anybody anymore. These people don't pay your bills. There's always going to be a handful of people that will undercut everybody else just to get a little bit ahead. There seems to be a lot of people that not only by nature are boot-lickers but they love the taste. Yeah there are people like that in this world. You know that. I could be wrong but i seem to recall that i heard from all sorts of people that see him punk left. They tried to contact him and he never contacted them back now. He's saying that they're not the boys because nobody context him anymore. No i'm not seeing punk. I don't know what's going on. But i don't think he's coming back anytime soon. It is time to take your feedback. Everybody no phone calls. Brian observer dot com at bryan alvarez on twitter text messages four to five seven eight zero seven five six six. Shall we see what is on. Everybody's mind we shall i think's punk and cabana would be a good story told. Hold your breath. No stop it. This person says i loved. All of the little seeds were planted last night on impact really liked the show overall well for people that didn't watch. What were your favorite little seeds. My friend text me. And i'll tell the world about it kid. More people watching week spurs says. Annex t continues to get booked like raw no consistency. No narrative thread a lot of good working but the moves the sequences feel very samey. Even takeover felt so flat. I'm not looking for anything on that. Show north american title match on. Oh this i guess what do you mean the north american title match. Oh he's looking forward anything tonight. I don't know whether to look for anything tonight. Because there's nothing advertise for the show. I have no idea and you know it's infuriating about it. I'll bet you anything. We have like a really good match tonight. That if they would've told me about it i could have got excited about it for a few days instead. I'm just gonna watch the show and they're set up some low level match but then somebody's gonna run in to set up an even better match and it's like why don't you advertise the better match three days ago and we'd be talking about it here on the show today as opposed to sitting here for an hour talking about how i don't know what's on the show and everyone's upset about nobody cares. I guess they don't care they don't obviously or they really think that this is a great way to sell their show. I mean who cares what. aew is planning. They don't care what you're planning so doesn't matter you do. You're gonna do lay something out get some of your fans excited over the fact they may see something and maybe plant a seed in an somebody with a remote control you know that's gonna flip back and forth if you're not giving him any reason to flick back and see okay is the segment i wanna see on. Are these people that i want to see. Are they going to be on the what are you doing. You know then then you really are it to a w do something to try to make people to tune in. I mean. I don't know you gotta rosser like that but again this is. This is a larger problems that have tripled down from the top and wwe that this is how they wanna book this show and this is why they get six hundred seventy five thousand viewers and impacts in the eighteen hundreds for says. i'm surprised. Nobody has mentioned the prospect of gallison anderson getting a chance to work with. W now people have mentioned that yeah. I fully expected to happen at some point. I don't know that. I've got no inside information. But clearly based on the attack on jon moxley. I think it's abundantly clear that there are going to be some impact wrestlers that are going to work eight w and h w should be sending some of the people that are doing nothing but dark over to impact and maybe some of the big stars here and there as well. I think we are going to get some crossover. But i do not feel that like some people are very alma guy. I don't wanna watch. you don't have to watch impact. I'm sure that if you watch impact you will get to see some cool things. But i feel like impact is going to be. It's just like when the when the annex t when the nwa stars would show up on on dynamite. You don't have to watch it. Nwa to follow all the story lights. They're just coming in. If you want to great. You don't have to watch awa dark ninety nine percent of the time if you want to watch it you're going to get some extra bonus stuff but it's not like i mean occasionally do something and i'm like what the hell's going on on dark. They've been better. Where if something is going to happen on another show. They're gonna show show you what's important on dynamite you don't have to watch bt but if you watch bt you're going to get some things in addition to what you're seeing on dynamite. So i think it's going to be like that with impact. Don't have to watch the show but you're gonna get some fun stuff if you do. I absolutely probably won't be washy impact absolutely not until something starts to happen on a more regular basis. It's just it gets squeezed out with time. Unfortunately for me. But one thing that i will like is if they decide to bring back the concept of the crockett cup and obviously they're still working together the nwa. I'm not sure what the nwa could do. But when you see teams like the north when you see the motor city machine guns when you have anderson and gallows the tag team division in a w is incredibly strong. It's incredibly stacked in a in a talent point of view. A lot of those teams are ready for primetime. There's some people that love like like top-flight. But i i don't know if i want to see top-flight on tv every week. They need to be on dark. They need to get work in. Can you imagine them going to impact and working with mortars machine. Guns are seeing some of those teams. Come over. I'm almost more interested with that. And how some of those veterans that have been like the motor city machine. Guns be on impact how they can come over and help the rest of the roster or how they can have some interplay with some of these young teams that. Aws that's gonna be. That's the biggest benefit obviously omega. And what he does is going to be important. But you know you look at some of the guys. That are rich swann and moose and people like that. I don't. I don't know if we're going to see more with them. But one thing we can see more of it as far as i'm concerned with impact the tag teams. I think that's them in the mix with with what aws. That's what i'm looking the most forward to for says. Oh we have something new and everybody according to this person here. They've announced tomasa champion cameron. Grimes that in addition to finn valor opening the show to talk about litter box and quote casualties of war games. We'll see what that means. I said city since you didn't but we're moving on here w. numbers from last year. For the fcc. Fine or updated to one point one million does that include. Dvr and replays. I don't think they have a replay that i'm aware of but that would include. Dvr spurs year says. Could you see a w blood and guts being team eighty w versus team impact. When the time comes for them to do that show. That would be awesome. I dunno i dunno. I don't know what's going on. They don't either like vaccine slowly being rolled out around the world this week. But it's not like you know vaccines probably gonna be okayed on thursday this book Blood and guts. For december thirtieth. Anything can happen. We have no idea how long it's going to be before things are back to normal. Ain't going to be soon. So i'm not sure win. They're going to do that. And where things are going to be going until then for everyone should check out marcos stunt singing on aws dark. He was fantastic. I read it. Will leon rough speak tonight about his loss. Well that was a casualty of annex. T so i think so. But i don't know because nothing has been announced. Is vince booking. Annex t. no he's not booking annex t did you hear damian pre say that he was happy he was not sure how the storyline was going to work at other things in his mind. He wasn't really for it. But how everything played. He was happy to help. Elevate the on rough well. What he started out by saying is when i was approached with his idea. I wasn't in it. I wasn't wasn't what's the word it was a term used wasn't all in or whatever maybe that was a bad germany s did invested. And then he kind of like foot over a little bit at the end but they really elevate leon rough honestly the every segment. He was in a comedy geek. It'd be saved by everybody. He ran for his life. He didn't have a car and then they do the big match and he loses the belt. I mean was he really elevated now a steaming gonna say i know everybody knows his name now and and most people know how well he can work and how athletic that he is so give them something to latch onto tonight and maybe you can make some have it otherwise you just made a name. That looks like geek. Unfortunately as far as being a fighter as far as being a wrestler okay so the little seeds person says dreamer pressing the locker room concern of aws involvement teasing. And he had his eyes on the tag division. Kenny omega teasing wants. The impact title rich swann being told off by the world. Champion security and some teases of swan versus omega back. In a moment.

He had the silver star with him but when they entered the house. There wasn't the son of crazy quilt. At one end of the room was a huge picture of a forest. At least they thought it was a picture until they discovered. It was a real for us so in they went and met 'fraidy cat who was frightened to death of a giant and right now the giant is coming closer and closer. We're in for it all right.

Arbitrary Milestones

"Hello my name is Jesse Mecum this podcast number four hundred for one now what did you four rules to help you stop it from paycheck to paycheck get out of debt and save more money today we'll be having a very very special episode because this is the four hundred episode. Ah I'm just kidding there's nothing special about this episode Lindsey who's over our marketing is probably disappointed as she listened to this but I found it funny because I saw that four hundred was coming up even alluded to it last week ever so slightly and my first thought was hey four hundred episodes four hundred hundred weeks of a podcast scary to think about those of you that are joining us now and have binge listened to three to five minute podcast of of me for four hundred fifty two just shy eight years there's something disturbing about that but that's pretty crazy if you've been listening that much I can't even remember what I said last week let alone eight years ago but for those of you that have been along the ride the whole time thank you and for those as you they're just coming along for the first time thank you but don't go back and Vangelis and that's creepy now for the four hundred episode I thought it'd be very appropriate to talk about something that fits right right in with this idea that this episode is Super Special and that is the idea of establishing arbitrary out of thin air out of left field lines it's milestones martyrs goals and then seeing what happens so we declared the four hundred was a very special episode sudden you can feel already that it is you may also decide to declare it something special to you and in that instant you have now empowered that then let me give you an example let's say you still owe for that masters degree that you're using every day you still thirty five thousand four hundred twenty seven dollars you may very well decide to make an arbitrary milestone for debt pay down and what would that arbitrary mouth don't be you might say it'd be thirty thousand because thirty eight five thousand four hundred twenty is that what I said you know four thousand five thousand four hundred twenty dollars less get you down to an even thirty and thirty it was like a milestone twenty feels like a milestone ten even five and then zero obviously that's a milestone not even arbitrary that's a real milestone but what if at thirty five thousand four hundred twenty dollars what if you made the arbitrary milestone a thirty three thousand six hundred why well it doesn't matter it's arbitrary right but could you look and see how much money you needed to hit that milestone Estonia could you say well at three three thousand six hundred I'm out of math at this point maybe nineteen hundred dollars I have no idea I'm not reading these things down I do not have a calculator with me but you establish Bush this you say you know what that three three thousand six hundred dollar milestone that's a big deal that arbitrary mosque is a big deal and I'm GonNa make a big deal and then you ask yourself how much money would it take to reach this next arbitrary milestone and you see how many times I can see arbitrary in a podcast episode see if I mess up a little bit because saying arbitrary this many times is proving difficult but let's be that as it may once you've said that arbitrary milestone then you just look at how much money you need to capture that maybe go back to the prior upset so I can't remember what I said last week and you would look below the line categories and say is there any way I can get closer to my arbitrary milestone to get to that thirty three thousand five hundred if that is indeed the target argued that I said earlier the numbers get jumbled make arbitrary milestones for yourself to alive and things up that's the key so if you're feeling like the next ten grand of debt paid on his too far away we'll don't make it far away make it close have the next five hundred and celebrate I'm not saying celebrate raped by go out and eat a five hundred dollar fancy dinner because you know you're getting intense and paying down debt but I am saying establish an arbitrary milestone look at how much as you need to get there and then sprint to that one take little breather for a week maybe less and instead another there's powerful psychology here and I don't want you to underestimate its usefulness as I was going through the chore of Pain Off Our mortgage the first time and the second time I I was celebrating the smallest of amounts that I was sending toward that mortgage because every little bit I just felt like it was a victory and that's how I want you to feel feel with that big old debt that won't go away just break it up mentally in your head too nice little tidy arbitrary non on evenly spaced milestones and see what happens I think it's motivating I think you'll find it motivating and I like that once you've set the milestone John you go to your budget you look for those below the line categories and you see what money you can squeeze out of their remember we aren't looking above the line I do like looking at above the line categories his annually for what we call the burn down session but we don't do that all the time because it's exhausting fun but exhaustion so what is your or next arbitrary milestone whether it's to save money pay off some debt go on vacation and have the funds set aside for that whatever may be set it make it arbitrary and I just think it's funny that you can do that at change to your arbitrary Mossman if you want to go owned the decimal territory anything alive and things up breathe a little more life into that whole budgeting cycle and keep on moving if you're losing in steam if you're getting burned out slowdown ever so slightly find a sustainable pace and keep on the most important thing here is and I'm trying to bring a game into this but the most important thing here is just to be steady and keep going in the right direction until next following apps for rules and you will win financially naturally. You never budgeted lightness yeah.

Don't Participate in Your Family's Crazy! (Hour 3)

"Eh live from the headquarters of ramsey solutions broadcasting because the dollar car rental studios it's the the dave ramsey show that is dumb cash is king and the paid off home mortgage has taken the place of the w as the status symbol i choice i'm dave ramsey your host thank you for joining us open phones at triple eight eight to five five to five that's triple violate eight to five five two two five starting off this hour is going to be a leash in north carolina i alicia how are you hi hi dave how're you deserve what's up not much i have a situation i'm hoping you can settle the dispute between me and my husband so he has recently started going to the gym and is very passionate about what he does but he's eating me out of house and home so we're in baby step one and i'm just trying to rationalize or have you tell me if i'm being crazy or not should i mean should he cut his supplements mm-hmm and his weekly spending to help us fund our emergency fund that may be into irrational what is your household income so growth is about seventy four thousand a year and what are we spending on the gym and on supplements so it's six hundred dollars between his food for the week and supplements for the month and then at thirty nine dollars gym membership food for the week yes so that's one hundred dollars every day week every dollars per week how every day one hundred dollars a day right no no no i'm sorry six hundred dollars there's one hundred dollars a day it's four hundred dollars a month just for his food for per week that makes sense no actually they're per month or per week it can't be per month per week four hundred dollars in groceries per month and in two hundred dollars in supplements per month okay well he's gonna eat four hundred dollars in groceries a month anyway most humans do okay what do you eat the additional for me and my daughter is two hundred in addition to what he his stuff cold is your daughter okay she doesn't eat much all right not a lot so yeah i mean a normal grocery budget in north carolina would be five hundred to eight hundred dollars a month for the groceries and if you want if you guys want to turn that back that's fine we can talk through the gym is thirty nine dollars that's not killing you the supplement's probably are high right that's probably you know how how long you've been a workout fiend this is going on his third month third month correct okay is he trying to lose weight eight or what's his goal his goal is to compete in bodybuilding competition starting from scratch three months ago right so he had some history off and on but he's really been dedicated the last three months i see okay and how much debt do you guys have we are about sixty two thousand dollars in debt and how much do you own your cars about forty thousand of that in on which cars twenty nine on mine and roughly just under ten on his okay so if you're keeping twenty nine thousand dollar car which represents half of your debt load when you make seventy five thousand dollars a year i think that's a bigger deal than supplements up laments absolutely okay so the what i'm hearing here is guys are just getting started on the whole budgeting waiting thing and you haven't yet both agreed that the big goal in the house is getting rid of this debt you're not on on the same page right and that's leading to the disagreement see when when when we both agree that this is what we're trying to do then we start looking at between one thousand dollar cars and is there another way to do supplements where i can still hit my goal body building or do i need to put it off for a few months and then get started again you know you start to say i'm going to set aside things that i thought were necessary in order to hit our big goal of getting out of debt that you guys are not doing that yet if you can get agreement on that it's gonna solve a lot of these things but i don't think you're going to ah win a two hundred dollars supplement battle while you're driving a twenty thousand dollar car matter of fact i'm sure you're not so yeah i i think the cars a lot bigger problem than the supplements if i'm in your shoes hey thanks for the call kayla is whether it's kayla's in wisconsin i- kayla how are you hi dave thanks for taking my call well my family and i are on baby step two right now we are working on paying off our debt but we we recently moved to an area where i have the ability to start a residential cleaning small business like going into business for myself i of course want to cash flow this and i think i would need about a thousand dollars to do it really well but i also know my family is trying to pay off that kind of wondering what you're paying what is your what's sure start up for cleaning somebody's house as a thousand dollars i'm talking about things like i'm going to learn how to run a small business i liked consult with an accountant to make sure i'm getting my tax firms properly treat a couple of books i like to be able to have my own supply sweet to make sure that i can bring my own supplies in someone's house marketing materials things like that and that's to really do it oh and my insurance and bonding so that's like the high end to do it well and i think i don't have a disagreement with a single thing you said i just think you can make some money and then by all that well right now i do have a passive could income of my own i'm a disabled veterans know household household already got that income trying to get out of debt you're trying to get out of debt and so you're not not cost your house thousand dollars instead you wanna make your house ten thousand dollars right so i can kinda jump in and work on a lot to go over to somebody's house and clean their house with their stuff and make the project project what i'm going to be doing is more larger project so like move in move out cleans party cleanup party setup spring cleaning laundry overhaul things like that take take some where someone else furnishes the supplies put that take that money and go basham supplies then take that and go supplies and go take some of these other gigs that you needed supplies for and then take that money and go higher your accountant and then go get bonded but i've hired a whole bunch of people to clean and stuff in residential situations over my sixty years of life and i don't think a single one i've ever been bonded okay insurance and and bonding with a really big toe rich ladies and rich houses enrich into town don't give a rip as long as toilets pulitzer clean okay they're not worried about your insurance and your bonding now you start doing commercial gigs those catering stuff in the party planning and all that other stuff f- then yeah you're going to have to get bonded and yeah i think it'd be good idea to get bonded and i'd love for you to take a class and get an accountant and read some books i think all of that is a great idea yeah but just cash flow it go make the money to pay for it organically use your profits to grow your business and then cost your house anything and at some point it'll it'll be adding for the household income this is the dave ramsey show dental insurance is great if somebody else is paying for it but if you're footing the bill one dental dot com is a much better way from my listeners one dental dot com is a discount membership that gets you unlimited lower rates at the dentist not just for cleanings but even dentures implants root canals braces and more whether you're getting a plan for yourself your family or your business one dental dental dot com is the way to go visit one dental dot com today and learn how you can see the dentist on a budget that's one dental dot com tom and david is in arizona david welcome to the dave ramsey show hey dave how are you better than i deserve what's up i the thoughts on whether it has filed bankruptcy i have seventy one thousand dollars in student loans i was divorced in two thousand fourteen i let's get a divorce bike and i took no part in because of my christian beliefs so my ex wife didn't get stuck with any of that i five seventy one thousand dollars student loans about thirty thousand dollars and consumer dad i have a bank repossession tonight vehicle that happened in june two knee surgeries i've been kinda down out i make about i bring home about twenty eight thousand dollars a year i'm just kinda just like thinking i don't know what the heck you about this debt on all of its like in in charge off many most of its charges on debt collectors calling me and i'm just trying to figure out what to do you about this how old are you forty years old fourteen year old son i have no savings nothing and i'm just trying to rebound about of business in two thousand sixteen and the horrible ideals the company i was working for body and ended yup having to close it down the end of the two thousand seventeen just been kind of ever since then everything has gone downhill when was you know and i go ahead when was the divorce two thousand fourteen in june when was the knee surgery the knee surgery they had one in june and i i had one in june of last year so basically every last two years i've had a knee surgery and i've been i've been rehabbing since then but i'm doing much better now back to working out getting back in shape before the divorce what were you doing for a living i was actually a college student studying design systems heating ventilation systems and just kind of gets walking you know jobs in their you know what's the best year of your life financially income watch two thousand sixty meghan almost ninety seven thousand dollars when i owned my business then why did it close i had a salesman that was working for me that i was really encouraged to keep when i walked a business and i ended up having to fire him because he wasn't doing his job doc which was pretty simple you just go to backers offices and drop off brochures when i found out he wasn't doing it i ended up letting them go and he ended up taking a position with a a one of my competitors and just slowly but surely he ran me out of business just drastically just dropped off and it was kind of out of my control because those you know when you're dealing with doctors a lot of favoritism and who you know and because he had been around for such a long time he built the relationships i just kinda underestimated his power guess okay well what i hear on just listening to your story is an awful lot of being an awful lot you've been through you've been through hell in the last five years my turn my turn a divorce a business failure two knee surgeries and you're under employed making twenty eight thousand just surviving and you've been kicked and kicked and kicked and kicked in your tire that's what i hear i'm our own yeah and i've done it stone cold sober i don't drink i don't do drugs i mean none of that i was accusing you of hurting no i'm guessing intensified because i'm doing if i know stuff does that stuff intensifies hurts people think it masks ask but it doesn't you're you're better off to be stone cold sober you got a better chance of making it through this brother but i mean i guess what i'm doing is giving saying i if i were you're just looking in from the outside number one i think you would not be a human being that was rational if you were not hurting right now it's rational to hurt work with what you've been through in the last five years i mean in five years you've been through four major things to surgeries a divorce and a business loss this is a gut wrenching behavior series you've you've been through dude and if you're not a psych you're not a psychopath i mean this this knocks you in the teeth it really does so grounded yeah well it that does that because you find solid rock bottom solid ground but but so then what we've gotta do is start to rethink link and reset and the to the rear view mirror is small for a reason it's smaller than the windshield field and so we start to look out the windshield and we say okay good news is i got two new knees and i don't have to ask a wife to do anything anything i'm forty eight what do i want to be when i grow up let's start dreaming again and maybe we go back to the engineering dream because your biggest problem is is not your debts your biggest problem is your income and the volatility of your income over the last five years has been all up and down and dipsy doodle and you've you've been on this whirlwind of crap i mean you just have and that's all in the rear view mirror now it should be your cult sober where there is no vision the people perish and so your goal your first goal is to get your tank fill back up and start to have something to be excited about again that's that's in the future and that needs to be around career somewhere maybe a same thing maybe it's something else i'm trying i'm not into real estate agent i got yeah i'm not real estate licensing thousand fifteen but i've never done anything with it i've done a little bit but i was beginning of the year really wanna start pursuing real estate good okay why are we waiting to the beginning of the year why because i mean it costs money for the news no association fees and all that but i do graphic designed to have already designed a bunch of my marketing material as i said you really kinda just roll graphic design freelance between now and the first of the year yeah well i've done it before real estate agents they don't like i wasn't gonna pay he'll stay just graphic design freelance i don't care who'd you can jump online and get jobs left and right doing that do it just on the sidelines asada so let's make another twenty thousand bucks between now and the end the year you ain't got nothing to do but work so go to work yeah yeah yeah let's let's do let's just generate some some activity and some income but the only way to have the energy to do that with everything you've been through is to see something in the future that looks like hope hope deferred makes the heart sick but when desire comes it's the tree of life student loans are not bankrupt -able and so you would be filing bankruptcy on stuff you could probably settle for twenty thousand bucks because it's all behind if you settle for fifty cents on the dollar you'd be out so you know bankrupt she's not really addressing your issue you can follow it if you want to but that's gonna be one more negative thing you have to go through and so i would tell you take all those bills and just throw them in the trash for right now and once they're in the trash they're not start working on my income come put your college loan people tell him it's on hardship deferral had two knee surgeries bankruptcy NFL business i can't pay you right now ding ding hardship deferral on the seventy one two thousand the repos up behind you it's done they're not going to bother you for a while and the other consumer debt you're not paying on it anyway you got twenty eight thousand coming in now you got a new shot hustle of some kind i don't care what it is but something between non they end the year go by make a whole bunch of money start clearing this data and then when you get your income coming up then we can attack the student loans and reactivate them you can get through this dude but i i really wanna help you make sure that you and your pastor your church community around you're getting your tank fill backup and causing you to believe in the future again because it's normal human reaction when you have this many negative if things come at you it steals some of your hope and the good news is that you don't it doesn't have to steal it you can just decide hyde okay i'm gonna look out there the rear view mirror there's a bunch of trash back there there are several car wrecks in my view mirror but right in front of me clean sailing thing i can start again fresh take a bow come back out for the second act i'm for the encore career you can do this i know you can't hold on i'm gonna send you a copy of kim coleman's book the proximity principle it'll help you in this journey palm if brother i'm here this is the dave ramsey show christians have an affordable incredible way to meet their overwhelming healthcare costs it's christian

it's christians financially and spiritually supporting each other it's what has done for over thirty five years learn more at c. h. ministries dot org that's the h. ministries dot ORG christian healthcare ministries is a a proud sponsor of dave ramsey live events uh-huh amy is whether the same is in north carolina hi amy welcome ramsey show hey day it's a pleasure to get to talk to you what's up i've been listening to listening to you for quite a while and i've heard you say before that the whole life insurance policy are terrible ways to invest money and my husband tonight at each have one and we have some debt and we decided we went ahead and decided to go ahead and cash out the title between those about twenty six thousand in cash out values so what would be your advice on how to use that money going forward wherever you are on the baby steps well we're back to baby step one i had some medical expenses last year and we had to you all of our emergency fund for that and and we had about seventeen thousand five hundred dollars in debt medical right now we've got that pay down to about a thousand is that what's the seventeen thousand five hundred medical debt and the other day is the car and we about eleven thousand on our car for your medical problems go borrow on a car no it didn't we we've done some things out of order and i'm trying to get straightened out or you just stopped doing it and went back to normal and now you started exactly okay right so the danger of using this to pay off everything is is that you do that cycle again because next time next time you go buy a stupid car on stupid debt you're not going going to have a whole life policy to bell you're stupid south out exactly exactly i talk octa myself to understand all right yeah so i mean really the two of you have to pinky schwerin spits shake not not not recycling this crap again okay okay thank you guys have term life insurance place we do have term life insurance shirts in place and i realized after listening to you sound that's really all we need term life insurance if you've got enough of that then yes i would catch the whole life out i would pay off the seventeen thousand five hundred including the eleven thousand dollar car and i would begin to replenish my emergency fund and put you back into baby step three the right right and i was told that we're gonna have a taxable gain off of that a like nineteen hundred dollars are more very unusual or they gave you the exact numbers online i don't know what and my husband says the mind it was going to be nineteen hundred jane you must have had these ever we had adam for seventeen years because it's very unusual for them to even make any money and the fact that it made two thousand dollars a shocking okay so you have tax on two thousand dollars just go cost you five hundred bucks in taxes okay okay and so it's it's ordinary income your basis is the total of all your premiums paid in and my cash value minus the total of all your premiums paid in is usually a loss in your case it sounds like it made nineteen hundred dollars and so your tax trait apply to that so set aside five hundred bucks for some extra taxes this year if you've got a tax return last year you wouldn't even have to worry about that you just get less of a refund which you need to adjust that anyway so yes i would cash that in but the most important part of the story is that win life happens the next time you're not going to be in debt and you're going to have an emergency fund in you're going to go into debt ever again you half after seal that you have to pinkish were bit shake because it's gonna if you cycle this gets harder and harder and harder to do it all right jim is with us in oregon hi jim how are you i'm great dave how are you better than i deserve what's up awesome thanks for taking my call on i was just looking for some advice to help council gala church she's sixty two years old single retired and she's on a fixed take home income about twenty six hundred dollars dollars from a pension i've encouraged kind of looking to see what her benefits for social security can be to add to that she currently has a hundred ninety three thousand dollar mortgage catch payments she refinance not too long ago just to take some money out craft at her payments are at eleven thirty a month so pretty high with her twenty six take home she does have two hundred sixty thousand in a 401K so i know that that earn a budget now we're kind of encouraging her baby step three to to to increase her emergency fund about ten thousand dollars and and then once we get our house she's not why she she sixty two years old she just trying to help out with her daughter and her kids and watching the kids and oklahoma the little bit broke yup yup i mean there's not time to she's not ready to retire if she is not gonna work anymore she's sell this house awesome it's too much house okay this house is not gonna make it till she's ninety with the with the nest egg she got in her limited income coming in from other sources because we use all this money in this house which is basically what it's gonna take there's no penalty on it but it's all gonna be taxes and and house and you got a paid for house and broke lady lady living on three or four thousand dollars a month was zero money and that means she's got too much house as what that means right so so i would suggest she go make a whole bunch of money over the next decade working yeah she's got she's got ten years definitely good how how old are you i'm fifty okay i'm fifty nine and i'm planning on working awhile i don't need the money but i just just like what i do and i need something to you know need something keeping my brain busy and so you know i enjoy helping people and doing what we're doing so i i really let me think she quit too soon on if she wants to keep that house now if she doesn't wanna keep that house and wants to move into about one hundred thousand dollar house and that way she'd have about one hundred hundred and fifty thousand mystic and have a paid for a little condo or some kind maybe a hundred grand or so that would probably work long term he's not going to be great it's not ideal but it's but i would not suggest that she broke with a paid for house at sixty two years old there's too much can happen happen over the next ninety what next should be ninety two when she dies probably that'd be the average somebody that makes it to sixty two in good health i got another thirty years probably roughly that's what the actuarial tables are telling us so she's got thirty years to survive with no money and i don't like that plan so i i personally would go back to work but if she doesn't wanna do that then she needs to sell this house neither keeping the house and not working is not gonna be mathematically mathematically it's not gonna work i gotta work hey thanks for the call open phones at triple eight

together for good but those who were called according to his purpose abraham lincoln said adhere to your purpose and you'll soon feel as well as you ever did that's good would kim is with us kim's in maryland hi kim welcome to the dave ramsey show hi dave how are you better than i deserve what's up i i just want to know what your opinion was on giving your adult children money i have a dog lose dating before has two children and she's actually for money to get out of a an apartment that she wanted and she was taken at hamad she's purchasing a home and she wants you to give her she i want you to give her money yes okay and do you have money nothing two hundred thousand dollars in my for one my house is almost paid off i you know trying to get that paid off i don't have a lot of debt but i'm also sixty years old so so you're sixty with a 401K your house is almost paid off what do you make one hundred twenty five thousand good for you and your single jan mary okay that's your household income household is about twice that okay is that your household wealth is well winning what does your husband have a 401K in addition to the two hundred you're talking about he had very little on it less than ten one thousand okay show your house your total nest egg for your household is just a little over two hundred would making making two hundred fifty thousand at sixty two years old right okay all right i got ya and this daughter is his as well right now no she's not okay now okay forced her dad when she was two i got you okay and so she's moving out of an apartment in buying a home but she doesn't have the money to do it she has it or not she makes sixty five thousand dollars here but her she had the money shouldn't be staying in in in the family who knows she find another i'm sorry say that again her apps is staying in the family home she's buying smaller him oh she's going through a divorce right okay but she doesn't have any money obviously because she's asking you for money won't okay and so do what is her long term plan with money she can have an income she can support these kids they x is going to support him with his child support how are they gonna live well she has a job making about sixty five thousand dollars a year okay all right okay but i'm guessing that there's probably some dead in that family that she's going to end up responsible for part of it is that probably true i would hope that's not the case i gotten her yearbook years ago and i think they were pretty much out of debt although she did for me to pay off credit card a few months ago which i did for about five hundred dollars okay all right so what i do what i wanna do when i'm helping bring someone especially people that are that close and i love that much as one of my own kids right is i wanna make sure that my help is not assisting them i'm in stepping into a bear trap i wanna help them into a situation that's sustainable that's gives them a bright future but i don't me participating in the bad decisions that they're making because they're hurting is not help and i think that's what's going on here this lady debbie me money he stayed in the family house it probably doesn't have any equity in it does it are you guessing let 'em yeah okay and so i make sure the divorce decree three if you can read that he has to refinance and get her name off of that mortgage so that she can get her a mortgage in a couple years when she gets straightened out she does not need to buy a house else right now she's going through a divorce it's one of the worst years of her life and she has no money and this is not the time to make a decision to buy how she needs to rent something she already has a settlement day how much is a settlement announce information then i'm not giving them any money i'm not giving her any money apparently she's getting some money december second why does she need money from you logically do the right thing but that's not the right thing helping someone when you've got incomplete information that doesn't need help and you're participating in their crazy is not really helping you're not really hoping her i wanna lover well i wanna love her with all my heart and all my being and i have to have the whole picture sure to be able to know that i'm helping otherwise i'm just throwing money at stuff and those kids need some food we'll feed those kids if she needs a thousand or two thousand dollars or something to get set up an apartment that's fine we'll help her get set up an apartment but let's create her a future life and not allow her to step up into a house she can't afford buying a house making a decision to buy home in the midst of all this emotion and heartbreak is a really bad idea k. but she's already gone through that she's already signed the contract not than not do it okay then she i'm not i'm not giving i'm not loaner money period but i'm not giving her money she she's creating these traps where you have to participate in her crazy with limited information based on the fact she painted herself in the corner corner and now now asking you to participate in that i'm sorry i love her but i'm not gonna do that no you do what you want to do

Hey everybody wasn't at this week in startups. I'm your host. Jason cal aquinas. And if you are sitting there wondering if you could be a founder if you entrepreneur you can. You need to have a small number of things in order to make this work. You need to be a developer. Nope not anymore. You don't need to be developer anymore. Used to developer. Now we have something called no code and we have people building no code startups. What is no code startup. it's it's what it is. It's in the name you don't have to write code. There are a bunch of platforms. Now you can build an mvp minimum viable product in the lean startup mode with tools. Like bubble or slack or notion plus air table plus a crm system like zen dust etc. And there's little pieces of glue called. Api's and you can use tools like appier which makes you happier and you can connect all these disparate disparite tools to make things happen and this little revolution going on the no code. Revolution is going on in parallel to the indy. Hackers movement and to the bootstrapping movement and people who are a working on a global basis working from home to build companies and some of these are lifestyle businesses some of these extraordinary lifestyle businesses. That take people from making a salary to making generational wealth. Let's call it what it is millions of dollars a year and we recently had courtland. Alan on the podcast. If you didn't listen to that episode was episode. One thousand one hundred forty three. Yes we've done over thousand episodes boy. Am i tired not love doing this. Do three times a week and have been doing. So for a decade and I love doing it as a privilege to be here with. And when we had courtland aland from india hackers on talked about all the different examples of people who were making a living just building their own little start ups And then he mentioned one. That was really interesting. Was called apps without co dot com apps without code And i said wow. This is a great idea. Teaching people how to build no code startups. I've i've been looking for something like that so that i could tell people go here if you're looking to learn about a no code startup so we reached out to the founder tara reade and she's going to join us today to tell our audience what she's building how she got it to five million dollars in revenue what she learned from her last start up and working at microsoft and force where in the past. And how you too can become ceo of your own bootstrap company. Welcome to this week in startups tarried. Thank you for having me. It's a pleasure Courtland blew up on the episode like Example you must have had a bunch of Dm's taxed and come in when that happened. Yeah he sent me a heads up to and he said i mentioned you on the podcast. So you've been in the tech industry for looks like almost i guess your whole career. Yeah yeah and You worked at google as a business analyst. Acquisition marketing a four square. That went to be a product marketing manager of microsoft before starting a startup called co electoral. Yeah that's right now lecco. Yeah that's right. and Then you went on to build apps without code so it looks to me just looking at your resume that you came into the industry and you know like a i wouldn't say entry level position but a you know a star position business analysts. I don't know what they off. I but it's i think it's like your dial for offers. Is that right. yeah. Let's more. So that i was doing a lot of forecasting for where we should be doing. Offers essentially google tried to buy groupon. The deal didn't go through and so they're like we're going to build our own and so it was a groupon competitor and was forecasting where we should be building deals and building all sorts of dashboards. Actually where. I started a lot of the the seeds were planted for me for a lot of the no code stuff i would do later. No code wasn't didn't exist. At the time. I was doing a lot of modeling and creating these dashboards in excel which turned out to be really helpful skill sets in the logic. The if this then that that you have to know how to do for no code. Yeah that kind of scripting light you know scripting and being good at excel man. You could become a real big for any start up. One person who has mastered excel in every startup and they just. They can do things one hundred times faster than everybody else. I mean when he heard that you're that nerd but it does give you the ability to kind of understand this no coats base so tell us why you're so excited about no code. And what. The implication is for entrepreneurship in the twentieth century. Yeah so i've been doing no code since twenty fourteen when i started my first startup. This is before we were calling. no code. Didn't have a name back then really. Maybe we're calling visual programming back then To me no code is so exciting because it opens up the doors not just for people who are like the traditional makers right the traditional people who are going to be hacking. I think it's exciting for them too but to me. It's exciting for people to see people who have industry expertise in a totally different industry. Right they know about education they know about healthcare they know about manufacturing and they see a really clear gap in the market. That silicon valley is probably not excited about filling or know how to fill and they're able to then create their own able companies to fill those gaps in non sexy industries to me. That's the most exciting part about no code and when we say it's accessible to a larger group of people what is the skill set that's required to build a company without code yes the basic table stakes because we know for a developer computer. Science may be math. Baljak this ability to focus and basically languages is the prerequisite feels like low single. Digits of humans elect to do that and based on people. I've talked to people. Believe ten or twenty percent of people have the aptitude. And i believe this or not to become proficient coders. It just like certain people have the after to be really good at design or something or music. If you if you buy into that not everybody does What do you think this sort of table stakes is. What are you need to come to the table with. Or what's helpful. If you already know or it can anybody. Do you have a high school education and you know how to use email. Are you qualified. Yeah for the most part anyone can do it. I would say that you have to have a relative level of comfort -bility with technology so like if email is really hard for example than like no code at building is gonna be heart rate. But i think that also having some sort of proximity to logic is the thing that makes it easier or harder for people so for example. If you and it doesn't have to be like computer programming logic it could be that you have a job as a project manager or you have like find a lot of people in healthcare where doctors are really good at this or you have some sort of job where there's it's a logical oriented role right. That is really translates really well. And that's that's a lot of roles Do find that. There are some sort of career professions. That people have had where they are doing logic in that same kind of way. Maybe you're an artist right and it's a different kind of thing you have to turn on in your brain because you still have to think like an engineer. You still have to think if this happens then this happens and if this doesn't happen then this should happen and thinking that third thinking like an engineer is actually the biggest challenge of no code for people who have never done it before. Got it and you created an offering people. It's believe nineteen hundred dollars for the course. Yeah what is the online course. What do people get out of it. Who takes it. Yeah that's right. So i launched this course and after. That code is a company as a whole on accident. So i launched it because i was building my first company and i'd done a ted talk on my personal process apps without code and building the first version of my first company which is collect. Oh we built this system that matches people to artwork based on their taste and so we were using rate at the very very first version of this. This is before a lot of the existing no code platforms are out there the very first version. I took a survey. I think we use survey gizmo and we loaded it up with artwork and we had like show hide logic so if you had a few like photography than it would show the photography and hide everything else or if you like photography and like black and white photography had a budget of thousand dollars and below it would show that and hide everything else right and so on and so that was the mvp the very first version. And i'd done a ted talk on how i had put together the product by that time we had taken that. Mvp thirty five thousand dollars in revenue. That mvp took five hundred. Startups got an investment from five hundred startups and went through the accelerator program. And so we had by that time moved on to more complex. No code tools. We weren't still hacking together survey. But we're still doing with no coat. And so i did this. Ted talk on how i done it and all of a sudden. I had a ton of emails of people asking me. Hey can you teach me how to do the same thing. I have an idea too. I have no idea how to build it. I don't have twenty thousand dollars to hire a developer. I don't really trust myself to communicate what i need to the developer and for them to really understand it and us to have an efficient working process. I don't have technical co founder. Don't really like trust someone yet to be a fifty fifty partner with me. What do i do. I was getting a lot of those emails and i. I was kinda irritated. Because i was like. I'm trying to run my own company. I don't have time to do this of this. I know is going to help. Five people. And so i helped people. I like randomly decided it was going to be nine hundred dollars and help them get their apps. Launched and then i it up again and there were seventy people go. Wow i think this might be. Its own thing. It's the whole business as as forward to now. We're running a an online school teaching people how to build their own apps. Right when we get back from this break. I want to understand how the courses developed and maybe give some examples of people who've graduated what they learned and then what they put into practice and what the outcomes were because ultimately if you're running a school and an online course be outcomes are what matter when we get back with tara reade from apps without code on the from websites and online stores to marketing tools and analytics squarespace is the all in one platform for you. Yes you to build a beautiful online presence and run your business lawlessly. Obviously you can blog and publish content. That's where space been doing that forever.

We set up the squarespace and that was the easiest part of it. It took us longer to write the copy and do the images than it did to set up the website and so far remote demo day dot com has been a huge head. We've invested in six of the companies and you know in a brand you can trust his squarespace. I've trusted them for.

In startups longest running supporter. You can on your twitter. Just say thanks squarespace. Thanks that's where it's based for supporting twa star. Let's get back to this. I mean zing episode. Welcome back to this week. In startups are guesses. Tara reade she is on the twitter t. a. r. a. r. e. e. d. i think underscore at the end. Yeah undertake the underscore at the end. Some other tower regard is an actress. Tara reade there is an actress. I thought she'd be totally irrelevant by now but she keeps surfacing so she's a train wreck right that's like basically she's known as being a complete disaster so my own now it's not her fault in an alternate universe. You've got all of your stuff together. You've built a five million dollar business. I believe without any investment or did you take investment for oh not taken any investment so you own one hundred percent of the business i do. You've have thousands of people taking the course a year. Is that right. Yeah yeah that's right. How many weeks of course. What do people learn in the course. Yeah so it's an eight week program and we are learning to categories of things so the first is of course at building. You actually build this product but the other half of what we're learning is around marketing and talking to customers and getting your first sales and also validation for what you're going to build and so we have to do have in half really of both the no code piece actually not the hardest piece the actual building of a business around it is actually go figure the hardest piece right. It's a surprise for. I think a lot of people. They're thinking just will build something and they'll come. We know that it doesn't work that way and so we're doing a lot of teaching of business fundamentals too. So what sort of about structure the way that the program works as you go through like freshman sophomore junior senior stages on that way and so you have live classes with instructor. We have left live classes on jim. And then there's homework to do in between that you do self pay so you go back and forth between those two different styles and is it full time as it at night. Is it work while you can. How do you think about that because a lot of people who want to do this they probably are aspirational. They may have a job right now. Maybe the kids or a mortgage payment. Who's coming into this. Is it a bunch of millennials or gen xers who are thirty five or fifty five years old and looking to maybe not be a wage slave anymore and get out of the upper grind and be their own boss who who who applies to this and then is it ninety five or is it on your own schedule. Some millennials but actually mainly gen xers. I usually people when they hear that they think it's going to be like all millennials building. The next uber or trying to something like that. It's actually not so. It's mainly people who have subject matter expertise in a particular industry. As i mentioned the four. Maybe they've been in education event. Healthcare they've been in manufacturing and they see a really clear gap that they want to fill. We've had careers and they are looking to switch out and to work either. Have a side hustle that brings in good income so they can make a decision on if they want to continue their job or they're completely fed up with working for the man and they're ready to do something else right. Yeah and so. What are the. Did you mention if they're going fulltime like. Do you do live watching videos. Yeah so what because of that because most people are in a nine to five job is not a fulltime program so all of our classes are an evenings or weekends. You can choose the time slots that you want. And i really built this around my own journey because when i launched my first company i was working fulltime microsoft and so i didn't have the luxury of being able to leave everything i was doing. I and go full time entrepreneurship. I didn't even have the cash to do that. And so the majority of our students also were an same position so they're working as well as launching their companies for those folks. Make sure you watch our discussion about i. Don't use your work. Computer work do it during work. And then you're gonna do it after doing on your weekends at some point. Tell your boss. You're working on a side hustle. They don't fire you or try to claim it's their right. I mean it can't it can't happen. That's absolutely right. We have to have this discussion to go. Yeah and go look at the contract to see what you signed. Most people are unclear on if they've signed something that says that they can't work on anything externally. They don't really know what they signed. Yeah yeah because these things are so complicated. They're twenty pages. Long tons of details and a lot of things are open for discussion. Like is this competitive. Well if you work at microsoft and you made this art project somebody might say oh. We're doing something like that. Our project at being in the image search no in a giant company. If there is something combined you don't even know so to basically protect yourself and you know be honest with your bosses. My best advice that's So how many people work at apps without code now. And what's the big vision here because you know getting to five million dollars in revenue something we see one out of twenty five or maybe one out of fifteen of our investments. Get to you know that hurdle here you are. You've done it without investment. How are you thinking about this business. You see a path for it to get to fifty million five hundred million in revenue or do you think this is a business. That's best if it's you know sort of More bespoke and you know at the ten to twenty million dollar level and you just sweep while cashier. Yeah so i have a. It's funny because my answer has changed over the years. If you would've asked me this a couple years ago. I i wouldn't have even said five million so so as we progress my vision for it grows as well. I see this as a fifty million dollar a year company. And i specifically think there's a couple of things that we've done well that will get it there. If we continue to do we'll get there The first one is around community right like you were talking to courtland. Couple episodes ago community based businesses are are making huge differences. Now in that. You've got your tribe for us. We've really got and done a really good job. Creating and cultivating tribe and it turned out that the tribe was not the hashtag. No code twitter. Audience it the hashtag. No code twitter audience already. Has i call them. Like tech adjacent. They're already like of in the tech space or they know someone in the tech space survey by the concept of no code. They're already fans of tack there in the industry. You're got a group of people who are outside the industry who are looking to build businesses. There i wanna. I wanna get in to the tech amount of those That community do you do something. Like slack instance or something. How're you matt satin discord or something so inset our students we have a really awesome facebook group for all of our students is really exciting and lively but i think some of it is our strategic us of faces of the brand When we started it was just me. And i think that there was something that was important about me putting myself out there because what it did was it. If people are listening on the podcasts. Like i am a black woman with dreadlocks and so i think people i got so many at the beginning e mails and people saying. I've never even seen someone who i don't know any women who are building apps definitely not that are non technical building apps. I don't know any people of color. Who are doing this. And so that actually really started helping us. Create a tribe of people who we call them underdogs the funny thing about underdogs like everybody considers himself an underdogs. Consider myself on the dog for a long time that somebody was like. Hey you're a white male who was born in brooklyn like you're starting on second base. I was like feels like. I'm starting in the dugout really. I feel like i'm in the parking lot. Struggle is not exactly the same as everybody else's but that's okay right because everybody's got a different variants of what their exact struggle was. But i think that there are some commonalities around what underdogs experience not. Everybody feels like an underdog there. There's some people who don't feel like they're an underdog but there's some commonalities right. And i think that one of them is around mindset and doing the mindset work of realizing that things are possible for you and we have to do a lot of mindset work in our programs because we have a lot of people myself included right. Like there's stuff you you inherit from your parents even about what you can and can't do from your grandparents that you can and can't do and so we know that we have to address that for students because you have not been a developer in this industry for years and years. You're not coming in with the confidence of just like let me pitch my startup in. It's great even though. I'm still working on it like there's so much imposter syndrome and so i think because from a brand perspective we speak to that. It's mainly video that we speak to that. I think that it creates an awesome tribe of people who are tech outsiders which then just grows the pie of. Who's who's able to do this i. It's such a really interesting point that you bring up because Correct me if i'm wrong here. But the knowledge of how to build businesses. Yeah has never been more available at free to no cost. I mean your charging nine hundred day. Let's be honest. it's this information are available out there free. You've made a made a community but this information on how to build businesses in two thousand and twenty is everywhere and just twenty years ago. It was locked up. Nobody knew out a term sheet was nobody knew how to incorporate. Nobody knew how to raise money. Nobody knew hiring practices. Now there's a million books on it when we get back from his quick break. I want to talk about motivation. And you talked about this and so you brought it up and now it's on the table. I wanna talk about. Why do so many people feel like. They can't do it when we both agree that it's never been more open. And we still have a problem with diversity in the space even though the the space feels for all the information is out there waiting for people just to grab it into to take this opportunity when we get back on this week and serves with tara reade snowman and ugly sweaters some things about the holiday season.

We've got the one do without code dot com sunday. I'm sure we will do a startup. And we'll have her own. No don't say that he will do it. Starring crazy app then actually apps without we get a lot of celebrities like especially like the nc level former celebrities who get attached to something like a cryptic email us. Hey this like washed up celebrity. Who is like doing cryptocurrency. Would you like to have this person. I'm like are you crazy. Like personal podcast. We're here to talk about real stuff so in that spirit of real stuff Listen you know we. We don't see diversity at the levels we want to It's i know better. I will say just anecdotally from running an accelerator of the last four or five years. The number of clients who are women who are women of color has skyrocketed. So i feel great about that. I don't know if i'm supposed to feel great about it or i'm supposed to be you know super woke and like upset in social justice where that it's not where it but i've seen massive change. Have you seen massive change in the industry and then do people of color Do women feel welcome in yet and do they feel like they can do this or do they feel like you know they're not wanted and we'd rather you guys not be here in terms of you know when you have real conversations with black women you know when let's say white venture capitalists aren't in the room. Yeah yeah a little talk. I think that the real talk is around. Creating your own playbook. I think that a lot of my friends and also my students who are people of color view the traditional route of startups. That the route of we've got to go to an accelerator. Then you've got to raise. We see that there's two options. Either they are they feel unwelcomed there so the conversation is either. How do i fit myself into that. Or i think the conversation more so with my peers is how do we create our own playbook so for me. I had an experience with my first company where we went through an accelerator program and have the experience of of raising from some investors. We didn't raise a lot like three hundred thousand dollars. And that was mainly because i was so uninterested in that game when investors. It's funny to now. Because the more i say no to. I'm going to hold off. I don't really know what we have yet. In this new company with investors. More interested right so it kind of we're that way But the i definitely felt somewhat unwelcome and a little bit uncomfortable. I think that that was due to a lot of things right Some of my own imposter syndrome of some of i created and some of it was just based on me reacting to my experience in the space right around me and so for me that i was like. Let me not be obsessed with that place. Where i don't let me just create my own thing. Let me create my own setup. Where i have a business model. That doesn't have to have venture where i don't have to be aligned to the tech industry and i actually found that that did a lot of good for my business. There was a period of a couple years. Where i really when i first started after that code and my first company collect o.'s. Very involved in the tech scene doing a lot of speaking engagements and podcasts. And all of that. I pulled back for two years on that a lot. Because i just wanted to go heads down and work my pnl and growing the business and helping my students. And i wanted to align myself with other almost like tech outlier groups The online course communities e commerce Non vc bax tech communities. Because they were doing things differently they were thinking about. How do we grow up as it is without having to have investor is. How do we have diverse communities and so for me. Finding my own niche communities was made a big difference for interesting and if i unpack it a little bit yeah when you go into the machine the venture industrial complex as a black woman. There's two things going on. If i if i'm reading correctly into your description of it and this and this was a couple years ago but still super valid and it may be changed a bit but you yourself are saying. Hey i'm different than everybody here. I feel different. And that's in your head. And then i'm guessing people are treating you different because you're the only black woman in the room or one of two people in the room and it creates. An people are uncomfortable to talk about race but when people are a very small number of people a minority of the people in the room in the in the lower case. Minority of the word The societal sense of the word. But just the your. There's not as many of you there. And maybe there's a ton of indian people with hundred asian people and all of a sudden you feel out of place and it gets in your head a little bit of like. Hey am i. Am i supposed to be or not. Yeah and it's it's incumbent on the people who are running these programs to really get that diversity going without it feeling like oh. There's there's one token black women in the class right and what you're describing is. Hey this is a whole another group of people who are the majority of the people in the room. And they're focused on this and it's your own tribe. it feels. It feels to me like it feels better to you to be in this group as opposed to that group and try to force yourself to kind of play the game on the rules of the venture industrial complex correct. Yeah that's right. I think in general one of the themes in my career is been to to zig when they zag. So if i'm not an it took me a while to get to the level of confidence to be comfortable doing this but my sort of general philosophy. It's just been if. I'm feeling not welcome or uncomfortable like i'll just go somewhere else and do my thing somewhere else. I know the people don't feel confident. In saying that for me that sort of just comfortable my own entrepreneurial skin that like do. I'm gonna i'm gonna crush it regardless. And if i need like create my own communities in subcommittee to do that like i'll do it so that's just sort of my personal approach. I don't spend much time thinking about it though because it's also like it. It's energy draining to to be immersed in like am i welcome. Do they want i. It is counterproductive for me. Is an entrepreneur immersed in that. Yeah it's interesting when you when you're a white male am just thinking about my experience in the industry. Yeah coming into it. I always felt welcome. I always felt like people were rooting for me. Wanted me to be things of social butterfly. Whatever i'm good hang yeah you know. I think mike pence was completely the opposite. Like it was like you're supposed to be here by by all means like table to table of tan. We're ready for you. Yes you know. And i didn't go to. Mit like portland. Rather folks or stanford like my friends or whatever but even without that. I felt welcome. And it really is interesting to think about some number of your cycles on your processor having to go to maintaining this whether it's imposter syndrome or being am i just like the token person's room and they needed to have one block founders or they just peck mayor and like how do people perceive me. All of this is like overhead rights cognitive overhead. Yeah that's focused on your business. Yeah that's right that's right. I think it's mainly the impostor syndrome piece though. Yeah because this is something that i spend a lot of time on with my student who in some way often have imposter syndrome just by being underdogs even if they are not women are not people of color. Update are trying to do a coding thing with no code right so already feel like underdogs and that's already like its own little. You know all we can dismiss that. It's not real coders right. They didn't go to. Mit or they're not like stanford able they're not coders and our computer science background. They're doing no code right. The truth is no code means. You're so much more efficient. You can be nimble with no coat you can be asked. You can test more. And i don't know if you've read the new netflix book. There no rules rules resonate. It will resonate with you because they talk about people just being able to make bets and obviously a large number. Those are going to fail but you focus on the winners sunset losers. If you're doing no correct me. If i'm wrong here but you're gonna be able to move faster and test more things. Yeah without burning through tons of money. Then you don't need to be on the venture industrial complex treadmill where you need another three million dollars to test another tending for three hundred thousand dollars each and none of them work or two of them. Were you can test things for three thousand dollars. Each right at the we need to raise three million dollars. Conversation is not the one that i've having my students if we're talking about raising we're talking about hundred k. Max of what people are looking for and usually actually did a workshop of people of my audience yesterday and i asked him like if you guys are thinking about getting money how much you thinking about and the answers were like twenty thousand dollars ten thousand dollars thirty thousand dollars right. And so if that's what that's what they actually need right. And so because of that then. We often start talking about other ways of getting funding. That are not see because it just doesn't even make sense if that's how much money you need to even go that route. Let's let's talk about other options. Let's talk about crowd funding. Let's talk about other things. Yeah friends and family around if you if you've got friends you've got aunt or uncle or a brother tanguy where you pass the or even you know i use credit cards for my first one when we get back from this quick. Break one or talk about people who've graduated and if you have any signs of success we've been teases twice now we haven't gotten to so much good stuff to talk about but i want to know what Some of the outcomes have been. It's early days. But i wonder if you've had any really interesting. Businesses come out of apps without code and you can check out after that code at apps without co dot com. There you go all right.

Today welcome back to this week in startups. Our guest is tara. Reade t. a. r. a. r. e. e. d. score on the twitter. I don't know if she's active on the twitter reactive on the twitter. I am what are you. What do you think of twitter in relation to the tech industry and like as a tool yes place to converse about stuff. I've gotten into it. Yeah i personally like to but it is when thousand followers and you're only following sixty seven you've got a strong game. Thank you I try not to follow that many people so i can not be distracted. Guards sixty seven lazar. I liked twitter. I often encourage my students to go get on twitter. 'cause they're usually not because is a good place to go be next to the people who are in tech and tech adjacent. That's where they are is explaining to them But i think that. I only go to twitter when i'm trying to be in the world in other perspectives. I get off of twitter. You do get a better. Yes perspective off of twitter and so let's talk about graduates and people who've success stories etc. How do people define success. Coming out of the program is that that they've built their own side hustle that they built a full blown business a project or maybe they got a better job because the skills obviously work inside of enterprises as well right if you're the you know micro entrepreneur who can make micro sites and pop up little projects. You're fairly valuable in the company and we have like one or two people in our companies who can do that who could set up a squarespace side and put up a zen desk. And you know that's exactly right. Yes there are two things that we're looking at for success one. Is you got a completed product. An app built and launched. And then to that. You're generating some revenue from it and so those are the two main things that we're looking at. Although we actually were just talking about this inside a team with eighteen people on our team now we were just talking about. We have a slack. Channel of student wins and we do see student wins in there that are like actually. I ended up getting a promotion at work. I showed all these new skill sets. And i came up with. I proposed an idea to my team that a product we can build to automate something in house and they were so impressed that i got a promotion so we are seeing that. I'm wondering if we should track that in a more robust way about the promotions to That was not intended focused though really the intention focus was around entrepreneurship and launching and business so examples of things that people are building because this is my favorite part of it Are usually people are building ideas and non industries. I'll give you some examples I have an alum who had a ton of experience in manufacturing in the midwest and he told me i didn't know this but the in assembly lines in chicago detroit. They're still tracking everything with pen paper and a clipboard. Like yep. that's done check. Yep that's done but everybody's got a phone in their pocket and he's like this is so dumb so he built an app for for manufacturing companies to track their process of what completed. What's not to. The headquarters can see when the process is moving too slowly when machines may be about to break down because of time so they can kind of app ishwar Simple yet checklist. With analytics to be able to see people can sort of log their each individual parts of the process probably on paper before or an email or some unstructured data. He probably built into doing it on paper now. Doing it on paper so he. His first customer was coca cola. Who license this. Why so my one of the things of the directions that i often will direct my students into the concept of white labeling because for many of them going after like a consumer business means that they need a lot of customers they have to be really good marketers and it means that. There's a long lag time between between starting having enough money to pay your bills. Like i always say like you need a lot of ninety nine cents to pay your bills if you want to do the math. You're welcome to do it. So so seventy cents after you've apple. They're cut rate. So we have a no ninety nine cent app rule. And then we talk about the concept of white labeling. There are other ways that other students do it but a lot of them will white label their products and go get a handful of customers who are paying anywhere from five thousand something even down to three thousand dollars all the way up to like twenty thousand dollars plus a year for access to it and if you just made something and started something and you already have industry expertise you have people may be on your link that you can contact to start some deals to get some first customers and it took you a couple of weeks maybe four weeks to build this week's smelled this as you're doing it for the first time and you then spent a couple more weeks actually starting to land the customers and you land a couple five thousand dollar deal a couple of twenty thousand dollars deals. That's huge your business. You can keep murphy on it. You've never signed wife right. And you have signs of this is when you have this service revenue. You still own the code base. You still have that. Optionality of making a consumer business off the checklist yet product. Coca-cola winds up becoming the next two or whatever workflow program. You still have that option right. Yeah that's right from the customers as well. Another example of that would be like i've another alumni. He's a music teacher and so he travels to middle schools and high schools to do after school music lessons and he can only be in so many places at once so he built a platform where you can like drag and drop elements of songs can compose songs together. Or it's like simon who sort of gamified it almost like a video game for students teachers can go in and give grades and what it does is it allows school to maybe had their arts budgets cut or they can't have like a whole a music program to then still music from like a regular teacher who doesn't necessarily in have that skill set and he has twenty three schools in virginia. That are white labeling. This forever meme amazing. Wow so you must be thinking about how this goes ten acts from here and is that an advanced corus or a subscription fee to be part of the community a fifty bucks a month to be part of the community. Make six hundred bucks a person. I think this membership communities are a big deal you thinking about scaling this because people obviously you. I teach a course angel university which is only one hundred bucks to charity for a credit investors We don't do that to make money but we have three hundred people take it a month and they all want to do something down the road. They want to keep going. Yeah nope we're done. I did an hour of qna or four hours. We're done have to go home now. And i wanna hang out. Yeah you can. You don't have but you can't stay here. You gotta go yet for years. I've been saying that same thing right. We've had one flagship program. And i had to intentionally be focused so i was like sorry. I don't have anything else in twenty twenty one. I think you're gonna see a lot of expansion of offerings that we have. I'm thinking a little bit differently more about this concept of a. I'm still playing the wording. But this kinds of the vegas school for generational wealth rain And i personally think that entrepreneurship is entre. Investing right. are the ways that you get to creating some sort of generational wealth greater actually pass on. Yeah it is very unlikely that you will do it with job. That's the way it is impossible to do the job. I mean it's capped right. I mean yeah unless you have some kind of profit sharing venture firm where you get equity in it like you don't have equity you don't have equity. That's his base interest rate options. Maybe this right. But that's rolling the dice so for me. I look at the fact that traditional universities are going to teach you about mainly how to get a job and work for someone else. And where do you go to learn about entrepreneurship and investing right. I do think that traditionally universities are starting to step up their game on teaching some of those other things. But they've not. That's not why most people are going there. Only they're the people who are going there. Just been totally. I think people at your millennial is it. I am yes i mean. Your generation seems to have been absolutely hoodwinked to into thinking that spending a hundred thousand or two hundred thousand dollars on a degree will work out and almost never does and you. I understand why a lot of people in your generation are like. We need to move to socialism and bernie sanders and elizabeth warren or super compelling millennials. Because well i got screwed out of a hundred or two hundred thousand dollars in been told this liberal arts degree or whatever you got in social science is gonna get you a job that could potentially pay back a two hundred thousand dollar mortgage basically. It's crazy right. i mean. There's just a total disconnect between what they're selling and what you're going to get out of it whereas when you graham it's super direct and thousand nineteen hundred dollars right. That's right so in general. I'm thinking about the school for generational wealth where we're not just like if you think about a traditional university. Where's departments right. The tech entrepreneurship or entrepreneurship is just a department. But it is not the whole school right you also if you wanna create some sort of wealthier that you can pass onto the next generation when thinking about real estate you wanna be thinking about stock investment. You want to be thinking about other forms of entrepreneurship that you then sort of piece together may be thinking about insurance planning and all sorts of things like that and so there's no place a products. I look at my peers right. There's no place where we go to lonzo schnorr ghoul and figure idea than your first idea. It's such a great idea. I mean just doing a class on wealth accumulation and yang proud of that. You know it's like you're this really weird phenomenon. Is you know your generation is like wealth is bad and you're sitting here saying no wealth is what we need to focus on. Wealth is You know the way for us to advance society. I mean if you have the wealth and the means to invest and to build the world you want to see money equals power. It's that is that's it. It's very uncomfortable for people to understand this but money equals power period the end. Yeah get the money secure. The bag is what. I always tell people. If you want to change the world get the money the as once you have money. People look different. Look at you. With the five million dollar revenue. I'm looking at this. I gotta be businessman. Tara how do i get on the table here. Invited on the podcast. I got to connect with her on the podcast. And i got a slide into her. On twitter she follows me and say hey you know. It's a great podcast. How are you thinking about funding this. Because i'm looking at it going. I think you're gonna ten exits from here. Yeah honestly do. I think you'd have a fifty million dollar business five or ten years and i'd like i like the little tinguely feel like whoa five million in revenue that connects if she had a little money. Act with three million dollars. And you look. Have you seen when that five million dollar numbers out there and you let that number out there. Obviously people have treated you completely different than the last brett investors cetera. Yes and no right. Like i got wait because what i was doing in my first startup was like it was like sexier so look and it was like a more novel i think when i started in no code. No code was not cool. No code only got cool this year. And so i've had to just be called crazy for a while in order to get here and i think it's good. We sort of emerged as a healthy company. Right so i had to go a couple years down heads down of like i'm not going to do the tech press stuff. I'm not gonna do that stuff. Because i'm gonna go work on my profit margin right so so that has been a big difference in how sort of i've had response to. They didn't just people. Don't really know about what i'm doing. Been pretty heads down. Yeah see i- anytime i hear. I always ask people who's doing interesting stuff when courtland was like. Oh tara look like okay. I can start doing my research. I was like okay. This is legit. I agree with you. People don't appreciate the online learning space. The no coach the degree they should. And i think it's just a bias not a bias of gender or race in this case it's a. It's a bias of the novelty like you're saying in the technology it's not a it's not right ratio learning it's not vr ar ray tolls. Whatever doesn't have an acronym that s precisely but i i mean i don't know if you start teachable. Yeah dot com got sold. I believe and then they found were saying they sold by tens of millions of courses in a day yes yes masterclasses crushing it. It have you thought about. I says i just had some people who are doing like an iso- platforma income sharing agreements on the podcast. We have two companies. We've invested in. That are doing this. Have you thought about isis. I mean at nineteen hundred dollars. It doesn't seem necessary. But i haven't thought about it a lot and that's my honest answer. I haven't thought about it a lot. I'm you know what it is familiar. I haven't thought for a ten thousand dollar course. That's six months. That would be more like a boot camp like leave your job and go to it or yeah. That's see. i think the next piece for you. I think it's very different audience. So i think that what we've done is we've got. This actually have been deepen this into december during for twenty twenty one. I've got this map. Laid out now of what the offerings are. And where we go. I do think did it. There is a vertical expansion. Like i was talking about before like no code and after that code is just like the first department we happen to start with. But i also think that that we mainly work with people who are beginning and just entering the tech space and are working on getting from that. The plane point of zero to ten k. A month read. That's the sweet spot where focus now but there's a lot that happens after ten k. A month. I know that there is total room for for building programs on and for me. One of the things. I think is really interesting dipping into different industries and coming up with my own mix so i see this happening really well in the online education space or people who have courses and they do dj businesses. That are more so like these ten thousand dollar programs. I've done them. But i don't think that gets pulled in with some of the tech industry approach and then there's a really nice marriage between two We're one industry is like we don't get any funding and we don't have to move fast and it's all centered around a person in a personal brand and then the other side is like you have to go fast. You have to scale up. You can use external capital like there's a nice inbetween of that united. Just sweet spot after that code. Sad love that. Because what happens is when you're and listen i i. There's few people who have invested in more high-growth angel startups than i have. That have extreme velocity like robin hood or uber. Calm like i. I've seen this movie But what people didn't see about those movies were there was a year one or year two where they were just rock solid businesses. Who was a rock solid. Small business in the beginning that was massively profitable. Nobody knows that. Because they weren't around to see travis launch an garrett and everybody a ryan they just launched the black cars in each city blackhawks were massively profitable. They were pouring out cash from their twenty percent. Take and the drivers. Love them back then. It was only when it happened. And they and they sort of belt amid to. You're offering an uber pool. That people were like oh grinding people because there were lower margins and obviously camp has much but there was a real rock solid business just being lincoln town cars on a global basis. They built that business. It would have been a ten billion dollar business. It wouldn't be eighty billion but would be ten billion for sure And the same thing with calm you know calm just always been this. Dip shit guy Professor g profiteer or whatever. His name is galloway From nyu he's like comments a terrible business and it's like you are more on like they are been profitable since i invested was the first major investor. They've been profitable since day. One throwing off. I can't say. But when i say they've thrown off more i think they are. I can't say they have thrown off so much money. It is ridiculous like they have been massively profitable at times and they've only chosen time to invest in. They were the number one app of the year by apple. Not like number one in hell number one overall like this is one of the most rock-solid mississippi you're right don't like talking about rock-solid businesses. Yeah it's so weird everybody and then they just they get on uber about losing money or postmates and it's like it's called an investment like if you're scaling across the globe like if you're losing fifty cents or a dollar every time you deliver food like that's really not that big of a deal you think if you raise the price fifty cents or a dollar what i love about your group of people. Is you know your your boot. Trappers like gritty folks because they haven't had resources when they do get resources they know how to handle it yet. They look at that money and they they don't go. How do i get new area on chairs upgrade everybody's computer and had our blow it. They say okay. I'm a stewardess capital. This is a privilege to have it. I'm going to deploy intelligently. I know how to get. They're not going to waste the money. Right in the frugality so important which is a great thing. I think about underdog on preneurs. Yeah yeah yeah i mean. When i bought my first magazine. I was literally put on my credit cards and like i watched every single bill. I signed every check. And then there's amo ten million dollars a year business now like you're still signing every check. You don't need to do that now. As i was so scared about money for my entire career that up until this last company i signed every check. I'm having to do a lot of work on my relationship with money. I have a really nominal hypnotherapist. She's wonderful when. I say hypnotherapy like i one time and we have like an assembly and there was like a hypnosis who came in. They did a weird thing and made people bark like a dog. That's not what i'm talking about your about that. And so really what it is. It's like the first par- part of the session is therapy. And the second part. We do like a meditation to clear a limiting belief like her job is not removed limiting beliefs and she works with all the executives on my team. Actually as well to just like help us get out of our own way as she specializes in relationship with like money and achievement for me i have learned. Is that like ninety. Percent of entrepreneurship is a personal working. Getting out of your own way this period and you handed guy what was in your way okay. So like a year and a half ago. I'll give some examples. I was in this place where i was obsessively checking. My sales dashboard a. I would like refresh and refresh it. Because i had this fear that overdoing while i'm going to mess it up. Yes i was waiting. I was waiting for like the like instantly. Like it was gonna instantly crumble. Vigilant being hyper vigilant right. And you're so scared of the boat turning over because you built a beautiful boat. I don't want to capsize or anything right. Yeah but that's also not that productive. The doesn't help refreshing. It doesn't help. We're talking to a customer helps building a new landing page house. Thanks melissa that would help. Yeah that's right so that's an example. Because i think the time i was in this mindset of like spend anything and so i wasn't like investing in the business away that i could have been. I wasn't investing in like my own coaching and growth. In the way that i could have been and i had friends who were investing in their own growth as as executives and their business and in advertising and i was watching them skyrocket and meanwhile i was holding onto all the all the pennies. There wasn't even that much but still holding onto everything. And so that's an example of something that i had to work through There's a lot of lake Personal worker have to do around like imposter syndrome. Like okay today. They release the former sturdy under thirty lists. Which i was on and i had mctighe. Thank you the the reason. That was a win for me though was because i have for the past five years had people that i've known who've been on the list and they email me inch time. I emailed them and said hey. What was the process. How did this go and they tell me about it and the goal you want me to nominate you and i literally looked back up like a few weeks ago. Looked back at those. And just like i ghosted. Just didn't even respond. Because i had so much imposter syndrome. That i couldn't even take like yeah. Please nominate me the reason this is a win for me this year because i finally emailed back and said yeah that'd be great. Yeah and you. Now you have behind you realize it's meaningless. It's like oh totally meaningless. The only meaning wasn't that i actually stood up and decided that i was worth it so to me like those and that's the real work of the subject comes up. I deserve it. Yeah like that i deserve. I deserve it part of course. Of course i'm thirty under thirty and then you realize like they're doing seventy lists having done those less than i was a magazine editor. We would literally pick people for the list knowing that would make people upset so like when people talk about who the you know. Who's on mount rushmore of angel. Investing more of like basketball. And you're like yeah. I don't put lebron koby near like. Oh michael jordan and you have this like crazy debate and it's just to get ratings. Yeah we'll just to get ratings and get inbound links and people tweeted when you realize it's just part of the you know media click stream industrial complex the other industrial complex. You like f you know. What does it matter but it is nice that you let yourself have the wind. Right bird yeah. I think that's exactly what it is. Or let my. I think that there's a direct correlation between letting myself be nominated. And letting myself see what i'm doing is a fifty million dollar. Your company saying like so clear to me. Those are those are directly. They're the shame. Shame click same same. Click that like and this is the part around sort of imposter syndrome around like yes. I can do it that that i've to spend a lot of time with my students on i'm doing an i share like i'm going through my own version of this. I'm just a couple of steps ahead but like here's what here's what you've got to get through because the challenge now that the barriers are lowered right now that you can do it without code the internet's here's you can just like very easily get out to customers. There's twitter there's all these things now the barriers low. It's really just you and you get your own motivation right like that is scary for people because what you say to people listen the opportunities there will you take it will you are working like that is scary for society to confront because then it's like oh it really is about the individual and you're an individual who is actually reprogram your operates as you're like oh i have a limiter. Somebody put a speed limit or on my car like the so you can put a speed limit and had to put it on my car because just remove it. And you're like i can change the settings a faulk man. I'm going to change it. I'm going to be able to let myself go to fifty million. I can tell you. Zero to five is a lot harder than five to fifty five to fifty is just scaling it up infrastructure. You know and planning like you're doing you know you you've got product market fit. Now is just a matter planning well. Listen dr i could talk for hours and we have. We've talked for overnight. It's great Really great to get to know you Hope to continue the conversation. If you ever raise money. I'm think everybody's looking at this business going. This is going to be huge. So congratulations on that. You know you know how to do love to get the syndicate involved if you're doing around and If you are an individual who wants to have generational wealth who wants to have control of their destiny who wants to rise above the unfair nature of our society the imperfect nature of our society. All the things self limiting beliefs etcetera you can do it. Just go to apps without co dot com and get started. What are you waiting for. Nineteen hundred bucks. I mean if you're if you're like going out to dinner or like once a month and having a couple of cocktails it's the same amount of money so just like for one year. Buckle down and don't go out for cocktails one less time a month which in do it like. Go get it all right. Listen great avenue on the everybody go checkout apps without code and follow tara.

BEST OF: Market Gardening in An Extreme Climate - Techniques for Growing with Cold Summers, Poor Soil and High Winds

"Welcome to farm small farm smart I'm your host Diego. Dri Ejido today we're going back in the archive lives to pull out a previously aired episode it's the best of episode let's jump right into it I hope you enjoy it guest today margin one big challenge for Brian he describes the climate like farming in the shoulder season all summer coolish generally windy what he's doing growing crops in that climate is working given that the goal for this episode is to take a look another use of this information is to take some of the techniques that Brian has been applying in the summer of Newfoundland and apply them to the colder parts of your season with the occasional hurricane in cloudy despite the challenges Brian has made a go of it in the is a profitable market gardener it was like farming in the shoulder season all summer it's windy windy generally with an occasional hurricane and cloudy so it's currently mid June untaxed listen to the ideas and techniques that he's using and think about how you can apply them to your situation and your bias now in recording this but it might not be the June weather that many of you listening to this are experiencing so what's the weather like now kit Gardner Brian Kowalski from Newfoundland was sort of today talking a little bit about your climate because it's very different than in in general consider June winter months I do anyway so given that what is the winter months of June light even if your seasons don't match up to his and when it's cold and rainy in October just be thankful that in at Spring Fall any of the shoulder seasons or the winter take what he's doing and just adapt it to your car around ten couple of days ago it was three degrees is the I lo- was about it isn't June and you aren't trying to garden in the summer in Newfoundland with that let's get into it with get how Brian's dealing with the harsh conditions of Newfoundland to help those of you who might not have such harsh conditions wherever you might live on short before recorded this because it's too hot and my office and I'm still sweating in here so when you initially described the climate that you're dealing with a newfoundland you said and when when and if this summer come to give people some perspective on what you're dealing with Well I mean it definitely gets a little bit worm hey Intimate beginning June ten generally have a a warm spell and my warm I mean thirteen fourteen degrees with some sun and better nights are still getting pretty close to freezing journey spin generally the most part this month has been out of other climates in North America right now in fact vinegar just saying you need to get a blanket because it's cold where you're at the exact opposite problem I had in it the summer weather that we have to grow tomatoes melons those types of things you have a totally different context in you've had to adapt to that context hello and if the sun does come out there's heat in it you feel it and but as soon as it's gone it's just did April we've got the soil warmed up the you know where I take any SUV leftover sunshine mixed it hidden around on hasn't snowed yet in June but yeah definitely it's cold grey your lot of fog ah put up some cold frames absolutely essential to get anything growing here and we get those covered used to be able to grow what you do grow right now we're recording in June it's cloudy it's still cool but for you as a farmer winter months there in those cold frames can you describe what you mean by cold frames because I think there's a lot of different things that could things going through April and infamy and even juvenile just roll cover off though when you're starting next door to the garden center so I can spread that on top of the snow melted faster and we covered with clear plastic and that helps warm it up fast you today in really get into a lot of these details is because what you're doing is unique you're growing vegetables in that climate where a lot of us take for granted ah the near the end of March and start melting snow and thawing the soil inside them we we used to keep the first year we had tap into people's mind when they hear that terminology yeah but I'm calling my cold frames are twenty five hundred feet law or twelve feet high a WHO's farming commercially up in Newfoundland your season really begins in March yeah mine does not every farmer but I have who grow withrow cover as well so we're doing Elliot Cohen Winter Style protection just to get each other so they're exposed which allows the snowden come in there and a lot of would you have to do early on is get rid of that snow so the space the hardest like Lettuce Kale Caesar radishes not too much elsl who okay so so late March are you then even with the snow in there do you have tables that you set up to start your transplants in or are you doing in houses they've abandoned some old ones so I've been able to recycle those just move into one service business and I certainly this land so but they have as their sort of businesses grown and they've gotten bigger actually that first winter weight of the snow and the wind on us snow crushed the metal frames like metal frames themselves folded in for anybody listening to this these earl Celsius number so roughly double these ads thirty in Europe Fahrenheit there why I wanted to talk to you on in general how long has it taken to melt away the snow and to warm the soil of enough where you can work it in a heated greenhouse I'm doing that in a in a heated light room and in a heated greenhouse so one thing I should make clear is a farm itself is Oh have you tried anything else yeah we did after that that first year that we lost them we rebuild them and classic lost they all clap Senator Snowe and win first winter they were off so plastic offer major we've got no electricity up there so it's just a single layer plastic and asset frame offers protection cover Sifi coldhearted the soil warms up prior to that time is this is a swell actually frozen oh yeah yeah frozen solid okay so you have it been a larger property that contains a garden center and nursery and landscape company says Oh my inlaws whole given the win you're dealing with what are your other potential options for dealing with that is is this really the option remove the plastic itself I'm trying to think for people who might be in areas themselves that are supposed to have you win what else could you do in the middle greenhouse is with four straps to the other two greenhouses on I decided it and that far Muslims again anchor and I think by transplanting out around April twentieth soil that's No God itself becomes usable and that's where you you're covering and plastic you're covering in the Pete to help melt the snow that's right see the plastic on say in March twenty as well and the same pam returning transplants and about a month later in April it's warm enough inside the school race if you can the transplant into this year we got them covered around March twenty second we had to take plastic off about a week and a half after we put it on because of Gothic arch steel frame so you can't make a greenhouse on that plastic on it laid it through heater in there it's great Louis strapped the greenhouses down the east side here's four stress come down in any Brown and then cross races for inside the House of that helps a lot and knowing which way you're prevailing winter is very good to know so over the winner windy you have to remove the plastic so it doesn't get shredded by the wind well the classic get shredded actually classic is pretty strong most of the time does the wind direction chain seasonally or your yet generally in the winter it's more north northwest or lot from the East River project route this well and so what that does is what we've noticed is definitely takes shakeout of them even in a Alberton again because it was a yeah he used to cover them near the beginning of March the first couple of years but learned that every winter on March don we'd be buried anchors so we've got three in a row we varied at anchors and the Durbach warfied down with chains on them the come out and the creepy storm that came through and up some more snow and the winds were just too much for that so we back on but three days later eighty by plumber and hour gusts they just don't maybe are much more rigid standards so having those strapping him down we've also invested a- caught windier that night in next day when I went up in the afternoon about a third of the tail loan out ground Lee for it works pretty good the if so the first spray that we were planting Kale into the ground we it was very windy that day we get that when we started so where we are were sort of getting that might against the size of them all the time working inches the frozen play we put the clear classic over soil once the snow is gone just helps to absorb more heat live especially in the early season when you're already also dealing with lack of light and cold temperatures so the greenhouses help I get slow growth due to lack of light but if you fast forward into March I'm thinking that the late you're getting would help expedite shabby damanges usually starts so kind of wait for those pass but when we did learn is we took them like cinch straps judge growth are you seeing in the early stages of things I know just say out here if it's cooler in the winter and I cover something with a row cover winter income from northwest northeast but summertime spring summer when things are warming up this is southwestern growth but I'm curious is the cold that you're having really slowing down that growth no no surprisingly not because we do have the life that real involved in in some of this market gardening that you're doing yeah yeah it's pretty common out here I know whenever I learned it actually neighbors who lie one thing that you mentioned earlier previously when we talked to buffer the winds were installing wind fencing how does that come into play and how well does that suffer the wind at least from the crops themselves when they're in their new transplant them into the soil you're covering them with row cover how that definitely is a huge factor with the broker at during the day especially in their sonner even if it's even thin clouds which is kinda loses everything up saw that in an heavier win up to about eighty hundred hour and we got that out so it's like net fine-mesh so let some air through but it definitely saas a lot nothing reuss laying there you know I I'm just as happy we're am I so immediately I went and bought a win beds keys and the same thing strategically placed pieces as wind breaks the wind is that's one obstacle you're dealing with and so that really helped a great deal other things we do to she says Brian plant a lot of rows of BS strategically got a hug and then a matching hytner holding lows down so what not just melting the snow it's warming will to that's right yeah buying the so l you down it's usually eight to twelve have one with Nora Furnace Meghan get started and grow on the heated wine gets the transplant going while you're melting the snow in the regular normal win here which is very Ori- parameters and our matches miles we'll get specifically are you using they're obviously it's a trade off between a thicker row cover that gives you more thermal protection you're getting up at all I might I might open a door at feeling law generally work on an average temperature as flowers about time we are planning things out in April the coldest is getting at night that we see generally it's not often by the extremists what mine is in those in front of crops deserve you break it's interesting a annual vegetable Hedrick light penetration through it where you found tends to work we've been using just a nineteen reviews from beginning near the end of April and I'm pulling him out now and their their bigger than a ping pong ball germs are real cover what aside the cold frame of two minus five inside the cold frame under that row cover is plus five the soil is warm enough in there that it and that too much for the spinach always had slow germination of them radishes I can do fairly easily they do really well I five Celsius degrees of freedom under the row cover will see the temperature orbit extremes during the daytime is there's no problem with heat in at all but at nighttime we've noticed in a year rubella spinach anything like that or do you have to go transplant do find a route as spinach I have a lot of trouble with I think the temperature extremes they are warm quite a bit inside I never Bentham even if it's sunny day it's thirty degrees in there I don't fit them but yeah regret his work for Just find direct seating anything here you've been outside in the spring is really tricky we in everyone apparently dragging tungurahua aches forever to Jimmy theories localized don't you definitely want to drop the Rubel roker does its job it's stays pretty warm right so the temperatures inside there are are bad at all ends planning which the method you've come to rely on for that are using cell trades are using soil blocks so free so packs zip but I notice the actor of better by inside the greenhouses stick with the the nineteen because you're losing light through the plastic one experiences the same thing if the temperatures are still so low that trixie this which we all try to avoid as much as we can and eighteen would be it wouldn't be enough Oh side even still all and of course with the day's getting longer I mean there's no sligo all Transplanted tiny little three legal beats at you see those things in my worry is I didn't grow the seedling big enough if I'm going to drop it in there would have you found like works best to have a plant that actually taste arena reviews them and when we do transplant we use a Hatfield transplant her one person operates a transplant harding off now I'm pretty rough with I grow them I've got the timing pretty good now so that I kicked him out when you're pretty there's not much else I will exceed in we just moved we'd have done a rubella and I meant to trinity this year along seed different east were protected from the south but it's that sue South West and North West Dover really unfortunately as the head is weird blows up from uh so yeah no I don't do and I don't do too many Asian Greens never maggots pretty bad the slugs like him yeah we just don't hurt them off in the in the heat greenhouse we should keep them in a cooler is usually about four weeks old for the Lettuce Kale we'd say she put out at three weeks or so rejuvenation when they get there I truly Komo wondering he probably need pretty good root formation in there that's really binding tight to be able to go through that thing well and you're losing light through the rover can you direct seat at that point even the the cold adapted crops things lay tat zoe six at the end of the day when you're planning for that yeah it was really paranoid Reicher started I was treated my feelings like little babies lots of careful her portrays so pretty small half an inch happen inch by inch in happy when aw what would you use for your mix. I'm curious to start the transplant. The reason I'm curious is because if you're going through that had feel transplant soil over the handle drops again it's really quick it just stand up thing right yeah Burma compost or we have had some bags dry compost us this year and throwing a few handfuls or buckles in eighty five percent peak fifty percent reconnoiter so I do get permission yeah we just have we use the sunshine mix number fifteen and throw in some either Elliott thrones all it heavy-flake trade so you so's alive but one hundreds few seven twos we we use those PLO trays I did a lot of play trace from the garden center as well 'cause they get all most of their plants in plot and they get those really good part of it out for the way the heat source is you can't close to the wall and that's that's the only hurting off I'm trying a hose four hundred feet plug them into our drip line in everything watered sometimes I'll SRNA sprinklers well I I then you can just press this evening fear forder discount go back retool love it how durable does the seedling have to be at that point because take my Ho- and drill trench down shallow trench drop them down every four inches in when I drop them we take him out there you know usually we don't we won't take him out on a date it's really cold or we just exposure between the two houses of fast in four hundred three hundred meters so we we join them other than just put him in covering withrow cover we just mentioned this evening's wired before we can wet before we search are in you know what to avoid a lot of trial and error on that for sure the like how much of what you're doing up there has been just choosing the right crops like I I you know to grow acts a certain time of year or or or and just mixed that APSO wreck the bulk of it is just such fifteen we what's been your experience with translating beats because that's one that I know Curtis's is done in the past he doesn't always do it they can be finicky transplant that was ridiculous I heard it and then I tried to take last year of as yet we're straight I mean I use one hundred forty four artist playing around with some of these crops if variety within a specific type of crop makes any difference you'll see thankful when it's done now is just sort of one of the biggest crops in demand that are easiest to grow inside those cold frames seek it out that's one buying seed I was trying to research every variety that I'm interested in it it's GonNa be in the heat of greenhouse and yet from what I settled leaves come we take him up we usually just do like how have you master that you would you say yet yeah we do pretty good on it the first couple of years we just direct seeded every like when it does start to warm up what would types of plants does that open up like. Can you do tomatoes Hindu melons cucumbers Winter Kale court star war divorce done really well do use winter for a lot there's anything along those lines in Wayne about in the season can you risk putting that stuff out putting that stuff outside just supercell usually get you know pretty good germination I definitely better germination inside the light room of his face early on I mean I tried nitric sneak carrots Nicole rains early on the way to Germany so it's just it's Nanako of frame is own your most guaranteed to fail Zucchini in the first year I put Kian squash out the first of June it was all dead this whole and then trade that hose back make sure strain so frees up the next day me too much trouble with some of the he Surf fancier lettuce had trouble zone over works great in them the whole bed like that and then we go back just with her band over with in just push soil against the cinema for has trying new open pollinated cold nashes John's the lettuce lettuce is generally good Tesa maturity which we've gotta add on no matter why they were twenty to fifty percent off of that then he's coastal star Romi great tried an iceberg this year in the name of abyss doing student really well so yeah a gardener Brian Kowalski finds himself living in Newfoundland Canada living in Newfoundland weather is a cold hardiness is also for everything I do murky what's with the most cold hardy and we've been pretty successful finding those I mean a specific types that are more suited to coal over others do you notice any of that or have you sought out any of that yeah I always hang out and it it'll grow but it doesn't produce you're giving up on all washes tomatoes I've tried outside uh-huh learn now so I mean I put in eight thousand four thousand square feet of squash through fence gate fabric cumbersome inside the cold France successfully every year except for last year which was exceptionally they have Seeing with the tomatoes have been doing tomatoes a second I tried to begin here the same thing happened I couldn't I couldn't get my head around the fact is so cold here June I just way run by Unisys timber but I do which is painful and tedious yes easily he is but it gets the job done and we get a you know an excellent stand beets every time successful in finding the room is and if I find anything that's not really underwhelming ages is dropped now I mean sticking with a lot of hybrids I'm starting to try experiment more all needed varieties but yeah I'm looking for the the quickest handout radishes done some Selanne throwaway did a bunch of land showing one of Coltrane's is here so that again have you body slow German nation yeah so in hurt us you someone mentioned this Kale he use gallium you like a reunion sets of you see I think maybe found some better varieties now fourth humphry tomatoes have again this year but I think that varieties in terms of whole thing every year with pretty successful last year though is an absolute failure again in before wasn't great so have moved that paper pot dot co row covered you have to use it all year round for the ups outside the Cold Front last year I would have had use it every month except for August that you have space open in cold frames for this the crops it actually need it and then you can move some of these Greens outside fine outside here a little bit tougher so I'm finding a lot is growing fennel inside co frames you know well who knows pilla worms off if that have one question regarding that how much of the year outside are using the half harvested out now in that second run I've stopped going in there so I got huge numbers of the ready usually to produce fruit hoping legible solve that problem so there's a lot of your planning and then as the warmer months come it's to make sure nation and that's that's been the biggest she last year it was too cold for the flowers to the able it would be a normal summer weather he stuff outside actually shrinking I had minus flint out lettuce Kale feeds direct seated radishes and carrots. That's right yeah exactly so right now in our weather middle of June Cole friendship now anywhere from like a third win a week or so and help you know help Health Waco is called finding produces even last year whenever by the third week in July they all those bigger leaves had cer- died off and the new growth still coming but it was like is called legend and it doesn't require pollination to set fruit ever word the P. Ways it'll set about I've for forty five days and one of the farms down the road swears by them so finally this into pretty knows out and yeah the one I got from Oregon onto hard on yeah so just the semester coming out tomatoes go in a week or so cucumbers us this summer I do all my herbs Basil fail some Salchow outside and this NBA. I am a in June and July mid-july was sort of like in my mind when rast acting that coal that was going to stay that it just restarted in this is all through July last year the SISSONVILLE disaster dealing with the row cover outside in the end what are you using to hold those down clips sandbags rocks lots of rocks realize candy I close what we're doing is basically holding the road cover this tight as we can not too tight when a crush classroom but fairly tight and then just sandbags rolling the edges in MEROLA niches their row cover over the sandbags they put out Who wrote the first July that I quit the lettuce even so near probably two three inches high put them out healthy silence she's like some stuff was covered with pro cover and other stuff wasn't and the stuff that was covered you know K it was growing but not as fast so yeah that stuff is all it's an ego in outside then yeah it's already started outside in I've got that under AAC thirty now at your cover eight thirty days on until else's the fruit so do those I also do in cold frames and I've learned stuff it would generally anywhere well but soldier Nicole friends outside it's all over had got again connected to the nursery garden center system we could afford and yeah we just overhead water through cover I should say last year we also went big time with the protecting the rope the sun belt from the wind do you think there's any advantage wanting it down about every ten feet and holds pretty good at it again if Windsor GonNa wait too high like they were to having a black fabric on the soil to warm up the soil you know throwing throwing the weed thing out inside the cold frame is I asserted aimed for the end of June beginning July before I start putting that Suffolk Nicole Branston his again nicer just so old it's just too much we know now of growing in that climate over the summer which is I I think I I almost feel like my who's mostly rocks insent ex if I've got an ISA role cover over like a low tunnel which had tried those last year at just a detracted tubes whole this days in the winter are near some of your warmer days in the summer how would you apply some of which you which is to try to hold it down and then we remember got into shallow drains quickly so heavy I don't think makes that much difference the soil as pretty warm without being exposed to the wind rain and cold temperatures so we we do use it though for his birthday the tomatoes and how it feels covers Kenan knowing what you ZAC Haram got it all back some of it and you just haul rocks and logs I'll soil up all over it it was such a disaster the wind we put it all out we got it all down and the wind just came in all of it out and Sunbelt like curtis those past comer plants of lettuce that we did that last year and in Chile pike coming in then we branch off in two inch five with triggers on it so we didn't want it a whole acre fairly quickly from Newfoundland to down here I think away your wins and like their permanent as well as you in the cold frames we've been pretty successful in San in cold frames none no success at all outside Bush beans weeks ago we were you know I guess it'd be fifty miles an hour forty five fifty miles an hour we just took all covered so you've used in have worked on their in Newfoundland to situation like mine or somewhere else in in more lower latitude North America to grow in the winter came to California and you winner growing would experiences fidgety watering their issues trip under the cover itself or watery through high Nicole frames it's all Line one of them I have overhead sure I mean I don't know what else does Asian ago it's yeah because one thing I found interesting that you're doing as you said in the cold frames every invaluable that pay for themselves over and over again and just keeping that heat there but the definitely I mean row cover makes even like the nineteen makes a world of difference the spurs as far as growth goes One point we had plans to kill plants I mean it just a write off the wages search wicked I'd say no no win oh I mean just cold frames and row cover I mean you're definitely gonNA obviously don't have as much light in the wintertime Gilliat Coleman's winner farming book and really apply it to the summer war are most of the strategies that we've talked about things that that he it was really focused on that basically keeping that alive in the winter is what that's that's the focus was getting grown and then he longtime cabbage carrot root of egg potato how hit those crops being grown previously there either you talked about in that book or is there anything else he really mentioned that was an Aha moment for you growing they're related aw put it to one side pile sandbags on top of it the whole the down her back on them not surprised a lot of people here to my partners dad were after the cold night my side I fully expected else's moving tunnels over the summer with slow town thought and that was originally that was our intention for like let's try war vegetables except for the candidate like canned corn on the COB is still fairly popular here is still seaweed and Caitlyn capable of the small fish that spawns on beaches in the billions every July first aside video on your facebook page and it's pretty insane soil in a crazy way that you're working with they would they had it would have wind breaks usually also that so most people had small gardens and that's all the group is that was the only thing said you know thinking of traditional crops in Newfoundland they obviously have not had roe cover forever and some of the traditional crops you said have been growing there here you're going through it and it's there's cobbles big let's say baseball golf ball size Ron Yeah my fist sized Herro fro Hiller it does a couple of things I wanNA touch on their one is the soil itself so I mean it's been well looked at that that book by Bennie Jackley I mean the row cover in the cold frame that was that was really bad I mean few venture souls would grow something different but for the most part was just those four things and to this day there are still people that only egos here's the lot of scientific and we just can't do it if it was in a cold frame where you're rain and eventually I mean they did progress into more modern growing pepys trackers but still I mean now today's Excel Pretty shallower not at all they bring in a lot of Pete pile up raised beds of peat mixed in As you were speaking July they would just go in that direction wonder how have you dealt with that challenge the first couple of years I would actually brought me to tears yeah I mean I read about it okay well that that she had actually you now experience it was definitely amazing was that temperature he's microorganisms here's a thought on the rocks like my first thought is man that's not very good soil there's all those rocks in it and now here's can you I'm wondering are the rocks really an issue because it's not as though you're growing in solid rock their soil injured I amongst the rocks so are the rocks themselves really a problem no they're not a huge problem no they're mostly you don't grow in the south to the winter but the first major now forget it let's go somebody's arm which are Komo kick it out of the way a slide over a little bit next to it I'm using a lot of the history or before call it modern egg most of the farming here was done in a very peaty soil bring the soil mulching Latte who eliminate the weedy they're not dealing with rocks ch and I'm all twit mow grass what is well because it's so shallow in places up there you can only go down about seven inches before i hit the hard pan and the house preheat the topsoil hair so and because and because it's so rocky and it is I mean it's rocky sandy got so much to me grass clippings so then eliminates the weaning you know of course that has all sorts of advantages to cheer fees the soil Yeah no so the rocks aren't really huge issue so that's usually pretty high organic matter for the soil and it still quick drains and you still need decide dress and then you're back matter and of course you know but because we've got so much win things dry out fairly ah Koy on it reminds me a lot of what I have to deal with out here where I'm on a soil that has a very thin topsoil this very easy to recognize the soil now changes color is grey and almost is basically big chunks of rock with smaller rocks in eventually washed up to grow when it's minus five outside of winslow on fixing the end of that road covered over otherwise no they don't really cause issues got ten percent organic matter in my soil five percent of that is we seed and aw I I had to listen to something in my ear this thing something so I could hear my hoes scraping against rocks subsoil is decomposing granite so you get everything from beach ball size rocks to smaller rocks and my solution to that has had to been build up as the rocks and soil but it really gross fine actually it helps to anchor the plants into the ground and then I know someone up the road who's had all this rocks removed from their cells it's still a challenge yeah I'm getting used how I just as the only difference I didn't even think anything but grow within had lots of organic matter now I'm in an area where I can come by that easily my thought for you is okay one solution to that being in the way and transplanting you know when you when Reagan bad if I'm prepping a bad which I gave him with that one that you saw the video so yeah in places like it's only seven inches other places it's a foot foot and a half so we have it I mean we are putting the organic matter in but you know every time we tale always rocks right that we are trying to reduce Tom is add a bunch of organic matter now where you're located do you really even have that option is warm sunny so yeah everything just washes out really fast even inside the coal friends with drip lines just I put it in the access to anything like seafood scraps fish grabs seaweed those types of things that you can add I ask effort as last time I checked it was nineteen hundred dollars time which is insane seaweed strip dry chicken relies on Venice Lonzo already starting to go a little bit yellow so I've just fertilizing again lenient truckloads takes a lot of organic matter to build up especially considering how much area we've got so Coleman talk about dumping all this type of stuff on his farm is just a long-term building the nutrients can you have you done anything like that.

"Broadcasting from baltimore maryland an all around the world you're listening to the stands berry investor our tune in each thursday on i tunes the latest episode of the stands berry investor our sign up for the free show archive at investor our dot com here's your host dan ferris hello and welcome to another episode of the stands berry investor our i'm your host dan ferris i'm also the editor of extreme value you a value investing service published by stands berry research all right let's do this thing now in episode one oh three i talked about mental models okay mental models are simply different perspectives on reality either way of understanding reality that can help you frame a particular situation in understand different situations their tools they're thinking tools okay most mental models are designed to help you avoid trouble before it arrives a lot of them are and we specifically address these circle of competence mental model in episode one oh three you remember circle of competence it works like this you draw large circle in a sheet of paper inside that large circle you joy smaller circle maybe a lot smaller than the large circle represents everything you think you know but don't really know so well and the smaller circle represents what you really know well enough to even claim that you know it that's your circle of competence andy idea is to focus your efforts in investing in business with in your circle of competence right so a doctor might have a a real big advantage over the rest of us when it comes down analyzing healthcare companies for example so they should really used that to their advantage that's their circle of confidence this week will talk about a different mental model this one is called second level thinking this one is very important for investors very important it's no coincidence that the first chapter of investor author howard marks book the most important thing is all about second level thinking investing in individual stocks and bonds instead of just buying an index fund you know actually managing your own account actively is at its core an exercise exercise in second level thinking whether you realize it or not it is it's impossible to have consistent long term success in his as an investor without mastering the art of second level thinking so a good question ask at this point might be oh i don't know what the heck is second level thinking now longtime listeners know negative definitions often come first around here right this is no exception the most important thing second level thinking is not his first level thinking first level thinking is shallow in superficial anybody could do it everybody does it all the time every time the stock market goes up because people think the fed is gonna cut interest rates that's the most superficial first level thinking thinking if you say something like a you know company x y z is firing on all cylinders and they just had a good earnings report and they're expected to keep doing well therefore the stock will continue to rise you're probably engaging in first level thinking but if you say this is a good company and it's doing well but everybody in his brother thinks it's the greatest company in the world and i don't think it's the greatest company in the world i just think it's okay so i'm going to avoid owning and then if you say things like that and think that way then you're starting to engage in second level thinking howard marks the second level thinking is deep complex and convoluted right first level thinking shallow in superficial second thing is deep in complex the first levels egger doesn't ask me questions the second level thinker rarely stops asking questions about his investment first levels angers are looking for simple tricks and tips in easy things that are you know they're they're they're looking at charts and trying to figure out what the magic point is that means the stock is just gonna go up and make a lot of money real fast second thinkers are trying to develop erode bust process for finding an making new investments and eliminating bad ones to first level thinkers all tend to be on the same page about a particular investment you know they all hate it or they all love it because they're all just taking whatever the commonly known facts are assuming that well that's the whole story and that's all there is to it and you know tesla got a great product for example tesla pick on tesla tesla got a great product and you know they're changing the world neither musk is a genius therefore it's gonna go up forever second level thinkers all over the map though they have a wide variety of very thoughtful nuanced views because they've all done their own homework and lots of it first level thinkers usually assumed the obvious intuitive cause and effect relationship right earnings going up stocks go up second level thinkers consider the effects of the facts right maybe they'll say they're going up the stocks going up it's getting too expensive 'em out something like that if you want an easy way to shift in the second level thinking just remember a simple to word question then what no matter what you hear about a company you always wanna say than what he earnings going up this quarter well then what you know everything's going up next year then what whatever it is you keep asking them what because you wanna know the effects of the effects of the facts no matter what happens the second level thinkers always trying to think ahead biondi immediate causing effect relationships right so for example of first level thinker might look at rising home prices in run out and buy homes for investments a second level thinker would look at how much the supplies increase versus the demand in what the pricing trends are and probably among many other variables and they'll likely come to a completely different far more nuanced and insightful conclusion in the first level thinker first level thicker might have looked at walmart in early two thousand eight and thought oh jeez at housing in and related industries continue to struggle struggle walmart's average customer will struggle and they'll have a lot less money to spend if a full blown financial crisis develops i better so walmart shares the second level thinker might have said we've just been through an enormous boom in housing and banking in clearly coming to an end people are going out of work homebuilders are struggling lot of folks who think they're too rich the shop at walmart today will very likely end up shopping there in the future better by some walmart second level thinking can help you identify identify bargains when others are terrified in the spring of two thousand nine a lot of investors were looking at a little company called prestige brands holdings which has three hundred and seventy eight million dollars in debt and pay three hundred and twenty two million dollar market cap so more debt than market cap banks look at that and then bond investors look at that and say oh boy you know the equity is worth less than the debt and it scares them away back then investors assumed every company with a lot of debt super risky but i thought it was a fantastic business it didn't do manufacturing distribution it just own these popular over the counter products like compound w award remover and speaking spanish cleanser and it just owned the branson controlled the marketing it's like a royalty it was really cool and their products had huge market shares they were sold in fifty sixty in some cases ninety percent of all the places where similar products were sold so it's hard to avoid them it's hard to avoid buying something maybe that's a good business eventually and eventually rose prestige rance holding stock eventually rose more than four hundred percent is one of the biggest winners in stands berry history in one of the biggest winners we've ever had and extreme value second level thinking could help you avoid problems other investors don't see when everybody thinks a particular stock is a no brainer right everybody's gotta own it it's probably more like nobody should only because it's toxic waste and even if it's a great business and the example i keep returning to cisco systems comes in early two thousand right this is the internet plumbing company and everybody thought it was the no brainer there you know no matter what happens this company's gonna keep growing and it's the greatest business in the world greatest management in the world blah blah blah it fell ninety percent from its march two thousand peaking still hasn't returned to that high price it was eighty bucks a share it's still it's never seen eighty dollars a share again a in probably be a while before does to make better than average returns in the stock market means by definition that you have to think better than average you can't do that was first level thinking you can't do that was simple you know causing effect reactionary type thinking only the consistent application occasion of asking what's next and getting deeper engaging in second level thinking will get you there second novel thing in the stock market clearly involves a healthy dose of psychology is once you consider if a particular investment is to popular you realize you're actually thinking about whether or not others are thinking it's too popular you get it so howard marks tells the story he wrote about second level thinking by the way also in his emails emails to investors there's one from september two thousand fifteen on this topic that has some different material that's not in the book and so he tells the story about john maynard keynes thee economist and canes made up this hypothetical newspaper contest he said what if we held this newspaper contest and this is back in nineteen thirty six so you could talk about stuff like this he says you know what if we had this newspaper contest for readers to vote in the prettiest girls six prettiest girls out of a hundred so readers would look at a hundred pictures of pretty girls and the contest was the pick the six prettiest and the reader who successfully pick the six girls who got the most votes would win a prize you could already see analogy right so most people don't even see the difference between the prettiest and most popular they're sitting there going well i don't understand the difference but it's really very different isn't it because the job isn't to pick the prettiest girls at all it's to successfully successfully anticipate which six girls will be chosen by most other readers at first thing is they don't even recognize the distinction they'll just pick the six girls they think they're pretty is not realizing the prettiest is a subjective judgment influenced by by you know cultural differences or some other you know mostly idiosyncratic preference is probably depends on which city this thing is held in let alone what country if the country if the contest is holding a town where they're more redheaded women for example example it's likely have a different outcome then if the contests were held in a town populate exclusively by blonde haired people okay and you and i can't say which way it'll go what if you put a bunch of brunettes in the in the town where there's blonde haired people well they pick them because they're different or they pick them because they're too unfamiliar it it's it's it's hard to think about this there's no obvious immediate cause and effect relationship and second level thinking always involves that extra layer or two or three or four of complexity city there's always something the first level thinkers they're missing in the stock market and i'll tell you something you better know that before you invest howard marks mentions the difference in the workloads at first and second level fingers the second level singers obviously do a lot more worked in the first level when you get into something up to your eyeballs and do a lot of work you think about a lot differently then if you just take a cursory glance at the headlines and accept the prevailing attitudes you tend to arrive at conclusions at a very different than the ones the first the level thinkers come up with so at first level thinker my here elon musk say production for a particular quarter will be so many thousands of cars and they'll think the stock arise and no hit that production number and everything we grade second level figaro wonder if musk is exaggerating or lying on purpose or whatever else you might be doing you know they just go behind the obvious first level thinkers tend to do less work because they think it's easy they think it should be easy anyway first level thinkers tend to be naive you they're just trying to follow what's popular and they think they want they want to think what everybody else is thinking whether they even realize they do not second level thinkers no investing is hard really hard they know they're competing with lots of people with more money in bigger faster computers and then you know advanced degrees in finance and everything else to do better you need the sink added different higher level than what most people are thinking you need a thing at the second level okay that's the ramp for this week right into us feedback at investor our dot com and let me know what you think all right let's talk about what's new all right folks let's talk about what's new in the world now as you know i don't normally talk about politicals stuff but every now and then something appears to be impacting the stock market so much that i feel like i can't not at least mentioned in i'd have to at least mention it so the g twenty meeting 'em you know what what does that mean for the stock market right and the the main thing that came out of that was that a president trump and and present energy from china agreed to take a step back from the trade war apparently and continue the negotiations and trump says there'll be no new tariffs on chinese goods it's while they continue trade talks and the market kind of loved the market loved that okay the market went straight to a new high first thing monday morning after it heard that news so this reminds me of something you know of course everybody's wondering now you know how g twenty talks effects affect market's going forward or you know what's what's gonna happen from now and as a result of that and you know the new highs that that was the result but this reminds me of something i don't know if you've ever watched be a very popular television show called friends i actually did not watch i have not watched it very much but a way back in the day i was working with some folks who every time i came to work everybody would sort of gather around say did you see friends did you see friends and there's but there is this one recurring thing that was kind of funny apparently two of the characters had a relationship they were dating and then they weren't dating very briefly and they saw other you know the the guy went out with another girl of then they got back together and from point forward there's this running gag i think i think it's a running gag where the guy says we were on a break you know the the girl accuses him of cheating and other people accused him of cheating and he says but we were on a break we were on a break i feel like when trump says no new tariffs on chinese goods while they continue the trade talks you know it has that flavor of where owner break kind of a thing because it's a thing you say it's an excuse it's just something you throw out there when maybe you know you've done something wrong are maybe you know you're gonna behave in a certain way or you have behaved in a certain way and and you know maybe the tires crystal clear to you but it just feels the same it feels like the same kind of bs it feels like the same kind of storytelling if he says there's gonna be no new tariffs he could easily come back and say well were technically not in trade talks this week run break so i'm gonna do some new tariffs you see what i'm saying it's it's just i dunno it's hard to believe anything politicians say for me it is anyway and i'm always trying to look behind it defined things like this that that might reflect what i think would be a more realistic outcome and so you know gold prices are down right the stock market went straight new highs in gold actually dipped below back below fourteen hundred after hitting like fourteen and dirty something her fourteen forty and that's gold for you right gold is is a volatile and move from you know fourteen forty back to i think it was like in the thirteen eighties and as i talked you maybe mid thirteen nineties that doesn't mean anything to me it doesn't mean oh it's a fake move and it's not you know it's not real 'em because of work for real would have had it back to the low thirteen hundreds ride back below thirteen fifty so i think the move is still intact and i think you know this is i think will look back in year two or three or five or however long it takes an will say oh yeah that was rheingold got moving course at the gas about the future but i think it's also a general guess about where we are in the cycle that's the important part for me i think were still closer to the bottom and then the top an i think the top will take is well past the old high of nineteen hundred dollars an ounce of gold on how long that will take who knows five ten years i dunno but you don't wanna wait too long to see how it unfolds you wanna be early in the trend and hold on throughout the trend right okay speaking of things hitting new highs mcdonald's on his all time highs reasonably for the eighteenth time in two thousand nineteen and if it if it if it's up in the month of july it'll be like the seven straight month in the black man when i think about the walmart has also 'em darn well hit new highs fairly recently maybe not as recently as mcdonald's but these two stocks stocks they're kind of stuck in my head from the financial crisis because in two thousand eight walmart was up twenty or twenty one percent i think including dividends and i think mcdonald's was up six or eight percent or something like that including dividends a an obviously the play was 'em as i alluded to in today's rant you know if you really thought about it well of course these stocks should do well when others are doing well because you know people more people you would think would shop at a place like walmart when times are tough and more people would eat at a place like mcdonald's when times are tough just kind of common sense but i realized commonsense doesn't always work in the stock market but i think that's what's going on here people are just wanting to a only defensive names so that's that's the kind of action you get with mcdonald's and walmart a doing really well at of course 'em i another thing i feel like i can't not at least mention to you is that a johnny i the chief design officer of apple is leaving the company he's been there since since for like twenty seven years you've been there since nineteen ninety two and of course the combination of johnny ivan steve jobs it came together to create these really incredible products you know the ipod potty i phony i had all this stuff and it really if you reid the walter isaacson biography of steve jobs you know there's quite a discussion of of iv's and then jobs involvement with each other in there an you know is a big deal they created these iconic products the look and the feel of them and it also it was different just have a designer just be so well known in so high up in the company and so influential ential a but you know nothing lasts forever and he is moving on to create some she created independent company which you know he says he'll still be involved with apple i don't know what that means though and it's the end of an era is and you wonder they make two thirds of their revenue apple makes two thirds of its revenue off of i found this iconic product it would not exist in its foreign present for anything like its present form without johnny live and what's next trap or i think of all the big tech names you know facebook google apple amazon apple is the one with the biggest question mark over to me because it's effectively a one one product company and it needs to do something about that and you could argue well you know google and facebook are effectively one products you know one service type companies 'em but i feel like they're meltzer wider they're more deeply embedded in are alive and if people choose to buy other devices you know i phoned turns out to be less popular in the next ten fifteen years then it has been in the last ten 'em you know what are we gonna what are we gonna see in terms of a financial performance from apple i don't know all right and i can't not talk about tesla because it's just so darn much fun a couple of things one report suggested that 'em you bs report came out and suggested that a you know they're they're they're they're they're lower the price target they don't suggest anything they built their price target and from a hundred and sixty dollars a i'm sorry from two hundred two hundred and sixty dollars and they projected that a tesla would deliver between ninety thousand in a hundred thousand a cars in the quarter this quarter they believe that meeting that delivery a is on is it's unlikely when tesla projection ninety thousand two hundred thousand where you'll be says no we think that's unlikely it's more like you know eighty four thousand units and they lowered that production from from you'd be us production before of eighty eight thousand so you know not 'em not great stuff about tesla and and i think that's really it four what's new i mean there there's a lot of stuff going on there too big deals 'em brookefield infrastructure about the genesee in wyoming railroad brookefield this is just the typical brookefield thing eight billion dollar deal not small 'em an an anheuser is gonna do a like in almost a ten billion dollar a i peo for their asian unit the asia pacific business they're gonna list that and it's called budweiser brewing company eightpack eighty ac 'em and they're selling a billion six where's the primary shares between like five and six bucks a share approximately a according to term sheets overseen by reuters reporter great business people are never gonna stop drinking beer not allowed to see here it's just you know end of the cycle there's all these giant deals of one kind or another and and i'll leave you one thing though there was this guy who i've never heard of it apparently he's some kind of management guru at yale its name is jeffrey sonnenfeld and he made these kind of a sharp comments about elon musk from tesla and he says either mosque obviously he's a genius and this is a board the board of directors that consider seemed to be a genius yet we see he's disappointing on so many fronts and guy accused elon musk of abusing diversionary moves he says the distracted investors away from like disappointing a you know one disappointment after another frankly a so to me like when i hear a voice from academia making those kind of statements about tesla in a well you know well liked genius like ilan musk i dunno just catches my attention i really think that you know whitney tilson is right when he says that this is it for tesla stock's gonna be below hundred by the end of the year and it's the be kind of the beginning of the end of the tesla bubble and and this is just like another piece of that puzzle falling into place when when it academic feel safe to just go out and bash someone like that of course bashing in the business world i guess it's okay for an academic right anyway just wanna leave you aside from what's new and it's time for the interview okay it's time for our interview i think this one's gonna be a lot of fun frankly i've been looking forward to this our interview today is with chris police chris is the president and chief investment officer roy hill asset management and vice president and chief investment officer of bmc fund a registered investment company he is a cfp charter holder past president of the board of the cfp institute's north carolina society has some sweet moves on the dance floor chris welcome to the show hey dan thanks for having me you bet a so chris i usually start these things out where when especially when i have somebody who manages money for a living i always ask them like how old they were when they first got into investing and you know what appealed to it about you know what what what what was so interesting think about it the goddamn interrupted what happened was there an event or an idea or something so like well how did you get started yeah i think most folks i would imagine probably can tell you specifically basically when they got interested in investing in started investing in common stocks is a child or a you know a great background story like that my my stories not quite as interesting as a kid kid i grew up dreaming of becoming an architect 'em you had a drafting table in middle civil so drafting classes through high school actually went to undergrad in architecture major for at least year one 'em and somewhere along the way i've realized that you know let's see so architecture at the time underground was a five year program masters this additional two years so it would have been seven years of schooling somewhere along the line i had the bright idea that i could still do the same seven years of school but rather than spend all seven as and architecture major i could do four with a business degree and then go back three with an architecture degree 'em and graduated with a two degrees in the same seven years that was during the mid ninety s m you know and somewhere along the lines ends of that roaring bull market and tech and you know this when my interest in investing developed 'em graduated in ninety eight which sort of high time for finance and never really looked back well so you are how this one say they frank lloyd wright fan you were very into him orange when i was we we had chatted about this a bit earlier so frank lloyd wright's the the concept of organic architecture and how we thought about designed integrated with landscaping surroundings just oh he's really appeal to me actually interned at of frank lloyd wright home one of four in new jersey 'em during one of the summer's on his home from college 'em and just you know there's there's so much to you know 'em a few years ago wrote a paper comparing investment process says tuesday architectural design process and just you know surprisingly there's just you know there's a good bit of overlap there that you know most folks wouldn't ordinarily think of but i think just the the combination of creativity and problem solving intersection of art and science or are in engineering and just see ability this sort of see the big picture and think broadly i think is a skill set that you often goes overlooked in the industry but i think light applications across investment business so i have a a a a bone to pick about frank lloyd wright now i was in enthusiasts of him i read you know the fountainhead then ran book you know and and they the hero in there is sort of a a he's an architect and the style that she describes is somewhat in the in the spirit of frank lloyd wright so i was really i love looking at pictures of stuff but then i visited be the kaufman house following waterhouse in pennsylvania shore and i thought to myself the settings beautiful in from the outside it just that can't delivered porch and everything it's just gorgeous it's absolutely gorgeous but then i went inside and like the bedroom this tiny in the floors like this rough hard rock and i couldn't imagine like waking up in this tiny little bedroom stepping on this hard floor first the morning it's just a it really kind of deflated me with frank lloyd wright i don't know how have you been in a lot of is is you you you worked in that one house have you you've been in a lot of frank lloyd wright buildings and i i have you know one of the things that stands out 'em in any sort of alluded to it then when when you walk through frank lloyd wright home is just you know how he thinks about manipulates elites year experience 'em in your experience with space as you're walking through the home so you'll go through doorways gutter intentionally smaller that'll open up into way wide open space 'em in and i think that also has no ties very well with this concept of sort of relative value in the markets right where you could be you know you you're you're experiences heavily influenced by how you arrive to right so if you're if you're walking through a very small very closed hallway and walk through the doorway into opened up massive space 'em you know it it it sort of it amplifies size right the effect of that space similar to living in the past ten years of a bull market right where twenty times even a is now just you know sort of a normal valuation for a tech company in you're comparing that companies that eighteen times the dog that may sound you know that may seem cheap or twenty five times either da that may seem a little bit more expensive but it's very hard to look back and imagine that you know they've same businesses may have been trading a single single digit multiples if you have ten ten plus years ago and could very well go back there at some point right so i i think are experiences both in the physical world and the investment world 'em can be heavily biased by you know what we've grown accustomed to well put i had i i would never thought of that the parallels between architecture and investing so one more architecture question what like what you're involvement today any i mean what do you a are you just enthusiast you just like look at buildings or what anything no no no involvement whatsoever i said i guess my only involvement a left behind 'em came along with you know we've got a six year old are youngest just six years old and very very into building in constructing with legos 'em in lego has this wonderful series called the lego architecture set where they actually have frank lloyd wright's falling water and the guggenheim museum is another out there but you know it around my home office you'll see they office scattered width 'em you know lego models of famous architectural buildings and other than that just you know i still tend to be old fashioned 'em yeah we've got thousands and thousands of notes on line in the clouds that are shared across the team but generally you know folks that know me well enough sat in a meeting with may will know that more often than not when i'm taking notes with a pattern and pencil and on sketching in outlining ideas and just you know i i just i i tend to be a very visual thinker i see makes sense so when was the first a gig women's the first finance gig for you yeah so i i also little bit unusual i've only had like a simple and they had really two jobs in this business so i graduated penn state in nineteen ninety eight when right to work for jp to morgan a field ajay deal jay pm headquarters at sixty wall street at the time i think jay pm had maybe ten thousand employees so a bit of a much different institution that it is today but still had eight yeah at a at a storied history in in a crusty just investment banking culture 'em i grew up on the investment management side of the business you know work my way through the ranks and in oh five had an opportunity to join a small family office in north carolina a world is assisting in in managing their internal equity portfolio and i am still out that family office a yeah over a decade later so it's been a you know enjoying life and the and the southeastern north carolina and still get up to new york a good bit to visit friends and family and obviously footwork and meetings but there's a lot to be said to have the distance to perspective away from the crowd yeah must be called being a down south instead of like in chicago or new yorkers someplace so talk about this firm a royal asset management 'em you know it as little as much as you want to but i'm just curious like who founded it and and women why and then why why did under what circumstances did you get involved sure so the family office was initially established shift in nineteen eighty 'em when the broad help families told the furniture business 'em broil furniture the name brand is still alive and well today although it's been bought and sold several times over over since then in the family is not really have any involvement 'em today nor have they in quite some time 'em so in nineteen eighty they essentially went overnight from the furniture business to to managing the family's wealth 'em and did that themselves with a small team 'em you know over a quarter century before i came on board i came on board in oh five as i said at the start to to assist in managing a one of the families please internal equity portfolios that portfolio you mentioned bmc fun at the intro 'em is really a a closed in scc registered mutual fund for all intents and purposes but it's not publicly traded it's not open to the public 'em i guess the best analogy is you know it's sort of like eight eight private endowment furry family members where you know the the sinking in amos for that money to deliver in perpetuity 'em and you know be available for for several generations of royal family members one of the things that that really excited about the opportunity to join bright hill back ten plus years ago in addition just helping the family run their own money wasn't a potential due to leverage that infrastructure 'em to begin to to to offer you know individual investors likeminded investors the same research intensive investment process constructing individual portfolios and really that has been you know the the genesis of bright hill asset management the registered investment advisory firm and and where we've been increasingly focused for the last several years okay so give us an example a go ahead with just gonna add right to sit sit that firm 'em most of what we're doing today is focused you know finding attractive investment opportunities 'em and you know running concentrated portfolios of equity investments you know winning if we see things worthy of quitting capital at risk 'em similar to the to the earlier comment dan and you know the value in being away from the big cities and the value in being located in the foothills of the blue ridge mountains is that you know we we don't get caught up in the group think and the noise in the quarter quarter immutability the sort of thing with a rational objective long term perspective 'em outside of the fray and away from the noise i think that really is truly is a a competitive advantage at the chart yeah and just for the listener i i get the see at least one a chris police presentation each year when we attended value xp all conference and i i have to tell you all christmas presentations are different than everybody else you could tell that he's taken a lot of care with ideas and they order in which they're presented and there's always plenty of good humor and the and and it's just a it seems like a a very careful thoughtful process it's a different character than most of the other presentations so maybe you could just talk us through a typical example of of a company that you would invest in it broil shore well first of all thank you dan i very much appreciate that the the value x conferences or oh is hey you know a great set of presentations and and certainly a good group of talented managers of so very much appreciate that a two point right i think one of the things we try to do is take any idea 'em and bring it down to its essence and and try try to make it as simple as possible 'em we also try have fun doing what we to write a lot a lot of a lot of folks in the industry and i think come off as you know over leave syria sir overly quantitative and i just you know we don't see a very strong correlation between right the appearance of being serious and actually being good at their job 'em i think the more fun you can have data day in the more passion you bring with it so we try we try to bring that with us and presentations and the material put together as well 'em i think a good example of that is is just the you know the the most recent presentation we gave just a few weeks ago i've value x 'em louis are investment thesis on car auctions services which is a relatively new position trust this year 'em yeah well who backup first second you know the the majority of our investments overtime generally falling into one of two categories 'em it is either you know eight eight value driven investment will say particular catalyst for realizing that value year or it is another investment that per one of many reasons is temporarily out of faith or or there's been a dislocation where the market has taken hey short term debt appointing extrapolated way into the future and were just betting on on reversion to the mean a which is what's interesting about car is that we sort of had both dynamics at at at work so we think the business is undervalued 'em and we can get into that in a moment get into the numbers if you'd like what what attracted this this situation was about a year ago 'em without being prompted at all management announced that they were splitting off 'em one of the two businesses that they owned and we thought that that would be the catalyst for value creation 'em the temporary dislocation actually happened and in february of this year the year after they announced a spin off when on a on a recent earnings call management's fumbled a bit responding to analysts questions about the timing of the spinoff 'em be quick knee jerk reaction from most of the sell side was that they did not believe that the spin offs well let's just say the risks to the spin off actually happening were greatly increased so all of a sudden the market went from valuing these two businesses independently under some of the parts business did just knocking it down and not giving them credit for the highly valuable salvage business that was about to be but off a long story short stock dropped twenty percent of the day which was that temporary dislocation we were looking for when we dug in we didn't really reached the same conclusion that the rest of the market did it did it seeing that you know the the response to the question regarding the spin was just sort of boilerplate legally is 'em so we took a position and within a few weeks right management clarified the situation in stocks were they came back to where it was 'em so that was the sort of first race of the the moving the stock the second phase 'em we see in value creationism spinning off the salvage business such a car is a basically runs into opoly into similar but different businesses one of their businesses 'em is in whole car auction services so another way of saying that is they've run auctions on used cars were dealerships were dealerships will go to these large physical options 'em and bid on cars either coming off lease stir through other dealerships but it's a relatively large market 'em with the car are being on one of two major players that control seventy eighty percent of the market a great returns on capitol high margin strong rip currents cash flow the second businesses also in auction business and that is the salvage business which was being spin off spun off and actually that that's been off was affective this week so now that that business is trading isn't independent entity 'em the we thought that business was clearly and obviously undervalued inside of car free spin a reason being is we had eight clear publicly traded here in co part part that traded at two x the valuation of car and so the first part of the thesis is that basically in the short term once i was blown off from car i being the salvage business that business would almost immediately be rewrite into evaluation more in line with coke part and we're seeing that we're already seeing that this week and just just the the how quickly i is being reevaluated the second part of the business which we think is still being overlooked and actually 'em there is a there is a downgrade on the streets today on the remaining business is we thought it was really interesting if you look at and think about incentives and it's the spin off and i'm sure you're readers have probably already aware of you know why spin offs in general are attractive areas for investment just because you know the smaller companies go undercapitalized as they're under management or just under appreciated inside of a much larger business one there spun off for for a number of reasons they tended to well it's smaller independent entities 'em in this case we thought it was really interesting that management was not moving over to the spun out business i may which everyone realized was clearly undervalued and we believe in most of the street believed would immediately rewrite higher the fact that management were staying with the remaining cut co desa which is used car auction we thought was a was a very important state and all right so i mean it does says a more cyclicals local business there's more structural threats in terms of online competition and it's just there's there's no clear comps because their biggest competitors privately held so why would you go why would you stay with that business if you're if you're management rather than go to the smaller spun off entity that is very clearly likely to rewrite almost immediately and as management right you're stock options are very likely to appreciate significantly in the near term 'em so the fact that they were staying with remained co lead us to believe that there is probably a good reason for them doing so let's just say we think the long term upside in remain code the remaining car services business a significant instill misunderstood what what is actually before we go further 'em in the regular remain co the regular 'em whole car auction business who who's doing the selling you said the dealerships were buying who's doing the selling so one of the biggest drivers of that business in the last few years has been the volume of off lease 'em vehicles that are coming into the marketing so you know there's a lot of auto bears out there for several years and that's actually if we rewind respect that we have been studying the auto industry industry and it's been involved in various parts of the supply chain for several years 'em we we think a recurring theme we've seen in the markets the last five plus years has been right accelerating change across industry is driven driven by new technologies 'em oftentimes those new technologies represent great investments although most of the times did not realize by value investors a bit more generally when there is hey worry of some sort of secular change or disconnect in the industry where it's or a sort of misunderstanding of what direction the industry is going media is another great example just being disrupted by net flicks and over the top versus traditional cable 'em you can sometimes find really interesting real heavily discounted investment because there's not certainty or or or or greater amount amount of uncertainty around those investments right so auto i think for a number of reasons has been in that could be very well defined 'em along the same lines which is why we've been so interesting and space so not only have the bears concerned about the quantity of new vehicle sales over the last few years with no annual car sales at sixteen seventeen million up significantly from the crisis lows but there's also this you know technological technological threat in terms of tesla and electric vehicles in addition to self driving an autonomous vehicles that is severely weighing on a number of the auto business is up and down the supply chain be used car auction market is one of those right so one of these one of the bearish argument for the auto oh yeah and the manufacturers is that right one some plot subprime lending has been an issue and juice new vehicle sales and in addition to subprime lending people have been stretching and buying more car then they would otherwise afford because they've been leasing cars rather than financing's then instead leasing allows them to you know make smaller payments and and they're basically right budgeting based on the monthly payment rather than me overall value or deal they overall cost so you've seen this tremendous speak spike in least vehicles as a percentage of the total over the last three five years car has actually been a big beneficiary of that because as those cars come off lease which you're starting to see now or or have seen in the last year to you've got this big wave of vehicles that need to be resold rent so more often than not they're pushed onto eight auction 'em either held by mannheim i am or car in auctioned off to various dealers across the state so that has been a big source of supply another source of supply that is under appreciated and this ties back to subprime 'em is repossessions right so when 'em if you if you think about the percentage of subprime loans and bone quality deteriorating as well as loan terms being extended and the maturity of his lungs being extended 'em you've seen you're starting to see losses pile up at some of the finance companies and this is more so a couple of years ago when i think subprime really got to the the more worrying levels and it was today the marketers has tightened up a bit since then but as repossessions sessions like those cars also go to auction and that's a that's that's also nice offset onto the more cyclicals parts of cars business and that repossessions should act more as a counter sickle sickle glow in their business while that was a great answer i just want to point out forever listener i i asked chris a very simple straight question he did not give me the first level thinkers answer he gave me the second double standard deep nuanced answer answer this is the sound of a second level thinker at work okay so i mean i could sit here and listen to you talking about car all day it sounds like a great idea but moving on i guess maybe we have about five or ten minutes here we need a lot of the same books and you post a lot of your breathing on your website when the brewery hill asset management website which i encourage people to go to it's a great source of information and insight and a great list of books so i guess the real question i wanna know is like what have you read lately or even in the past year that's like just changed her life if anything if it's okay hey may reward a question a bit as opposed to you know rather than something that changed my mile on a couple of books that holiday significant influence or or resonated with a significantly come over the last few years okay so i'll give me a couple couple of examples one had the biggest impact on me personally was a book titled why we sleep by neurologists by the name of matt kuchar matthew walker per ten years prior ahead have been eight you know just say worrisome insomniac on this book just really opened up my eyes to importance of sleet both mental and physical standpoint 'em and just all the benefits both of the benefits of of full eight hours of sleep and also the risks 'em of not getting that sleep so would would highly encourage folks in yourself that if you haven't given it a reason to take the time to breathe a m something perhaps a little bit more in line with what we've been talking about today i think last year on the book club i highlighted 'em dividend cheese biography by walter isaacson 'em mentioned earlier just destroy the intersection of science and are and i just i don't think there is a better for example in history of that level of thinking and then you mentioned second level thinking right which i think the the term us popularized by the howard marks at oak tree on but just you know the benches she's curiosity is childlike sense of wonder and just you know seeking knowledge for the sake of knowledge is just fascinating read the there were examples in the book where the guy was literally sketching the tunguska woodpecker because he was curious about how the hungry attractive and how that would work with the bird rights slamming its head into a tree 'em he's got no other examples in his new book where there's almost two hundred attempts of him trying to square a circle right just drawing it out over and over he's got seven hundred and thirty other sketches of different varying flows water 'em and and sixty seven different words were describing right like how water generally moves he was also a very visual thinker 'em yeah it's you know his his to do lists and notebooks i think maybe you know one of the greatest testament the curiosity is it ever seen 'em at the other end of of of one one more example which i can tie back to frank lloyd wright as well he was he was a day dreamer right and he had a reputation is such a it took him a lot of people probably don't realize it took him six six years to complete the mona lisa 'em while painting painting the last supper for example right he would sometimes stared at her in our make one small stroke and then go home for the day and this goes back and ties well to a story i've heard about frank lloyd wright and wait design falling water if it's designed for the kaufman family who loved the site and commissioned him design something amazing on that property 'em and you know right basically sweet did nothing for over a year at some point on a sunday morning kaufman call them up and said you know i i i'm coming up for lunch i'd love to see what you've done in terms of the design of the place and so in the time it took kaufman the drive up to frank lloyd wright's office between when he was eating breakfast and when they met for lunch frank lloyd wright basically drew the design for falling water after a year of doing nothing but i think the lesson there and that also ties back to the benefits of being away from the street and away from the noise is you know there is so much value and distraction or procrastination 'em or just being able to schedule a time to think right i mean doing nothing isn't always a bad thing because doing nothing allows information to filter into her subconscious not unlike the dreaming steak does when were sleeping so i think we just become better at seeing associations that we wouldn't otherwise see if we were constantly bombarded with information right so like signing the time to step away 'em take a walk 'em yeah they go up to the mountains take a walk in the woods gopher hike 'em in most hoover ski who is condiments partner kind of me being the the behavioral economist at real thinking fast and slow that it's been very much popularized over the last few years has a great quote on that and i'll wrap up here he said the secrets of doing good research is always to be a little under employed you waste years than not being able to waste hours brilliant that's a brilliant quote so and i read that book to the defense you book i in fact i read all four of those genius biographies by isaacson and their incredible einstein steve jobs benjamin franklin but i agree the dementia book is just just off the charts incredible you he goes deep into what made that guy what he was a an end there's a whole list of stuff at the end of the book you know there's like ten things that made him incredible 'em you you almost might wanna start start there if you're gonna reid it yeah the grit 'em chris we we have a few minutes here a if i could ask you a as i do with many of my guess you know to a you know if you had just one thought that you'd wanna leave our listeners singers wis what what would it be you know i would say an easy question more than anything no it's not easy question you know maybe just going back to this idea of curiosity 'em and the importance of curiosity right like i think a lot of the times in this industry people have a tendency in the habit of favor and higher for intellect and intelligence were higher first skills 'em in our opinion skills can be learned right 'em the that that child like curiosity cannot 'em and i just you know over the years we've learned that effort 'em you know i i guess simply stated right effort greater than intelligence 'em you can't teach that curiosity can't teach that motivation i think ultimately yeah that that persistence that drive this what differentiates the successful from from everyone else good answer listen and chris thanks for being here i really appreciate it i've been looking forward to it and and i as i knew you would not you did not disappoint a and i hope you'll be able to join us again sometime will look forward to it thanks dan appreciate it all right it's time for the mailbag this is a very important part of the show folks this is where we talk to each other this is where you talk back to me after i've been talking to you offer an hour so right into us talk to us right into feedback investor our dot com with comments questions politely worded criticisms anything that's on your mind okay i've got one here from scott s he said he writes any says this is scott as from texas all right scott i hear ya from texas a and scott says speaking of fundamentals he actually wrote a longer email i think and i just i just cut out this section just speaking of fundamentals sometimes i feel a bit lazy when it comes the fundamentals compared to people who log many hours of research into a single position before they plunked down a single penny toured the first share what do you think about my approach the fundamentals which is only look at statistics on yahoo finance just kidding okay seriously then he says i do look at certain metrics of course price the book prices sales return on equity compared the competitors free cash flow year over year versus revenue year over year insider share ownership level of debt versus market cap and free cash flow etcetera etcetera andy reid is many articles in stands berry emails for example about a company in its sector as readily available paying particular attention to a relatively small number of advisers and thinkers like yourself and porter porter stands berry in steve sugared mark eusko jesse felder who we both had on the program in jim rogers and subscribe to a couple of investing services i greatly respect reading and listening to all of that listening carefully when the track record's decisions of company any ceos and founders disgust so dad is that enough fundamental analysis because i'm probably not going to be making batches of phone calls the various current or former employees of a company's stock i'm considering buying their shorting i won't be playing the china india earlier timbuktu demeanor ceos and company founders in person i mean it's why we spend money on solid financial advisories in subscriptions right if you actually read all this you're a good look mr ferris you're a good man even if you don't scott s from texas texas okay scott couple of things you all you've told me is what you reid and what you look at you haven't told me really what you do with it that is the key piece all you've told me is what you're inputs are in you're inputs could be they they seem pretty good to me but for example you told me a look at price the book price to sales are we free cash flow what do these things mean to you know and and you did there was one little phrase the kind of set me off a little you said many articles as and a about a company in its sector as is readily available look the second level thinker he doesn't care what's readily available he finds that what he needs to find out in order to see if he can get yards in his favor not so i don't really know if you're process results and getting the odds in your favor but this is just my reaction to what you've written here in your question about doing enough fundamental analysis technically speaking only you can really answer that and and really technically speaking only the market timing answer that really that's that's who could answer that for you but sure those input sound great but it's what you do with them and how you think about them and if you wanna know what i mean by how you think reid that book i mentioned healthy opening the most important thing by howard marks a good question thank you scott number two hi dan this is from brendon k hi dan i love the show thank you for all the knowledge and wisdom you share with us each week i listened to episode one oh six and took your advice about using discounted free cash flow devalue a business i used philip sixty six ticker symbol ps x to do this analysis i know in the podcast you mentioned you found that starbucks is price per little snow gross when the stock was between forty fifty but didn't quite go into the details residents stating that you take the current stock price and back calculate the growth rate this priced into the stock is its current price after watching investor pedia is video about how to use this kind of free cash flow analysis i didn't know what an accurate x at price witty investment was so i assumed a very conservative two percent growth in free cash flow over five years an index the price of fifty billion which seemed pretty reasonable wrist that i found this kind of free cash price is hard and six dollars fifty one cents while the stock closed the day at ninety four oh six on july first signaling the stock is undervalued did i perform this analysis correctly where my assumption is valid thanks again hope you answer my question best regards brandon k well yeah you're he sent me a spreadsheet to an end everything looks fine but of course this suffers from the problem i was talking about with this kind of free cash flow a when you said you know you didn't quite know what the terminal value what you called i think he called it the x prize right because the typical thing is the discount you know five or ten or twenty or thirty however many years and then at the end of that you assume that you sell investment and you're basically saying all the cash flows after that are gonna be worth x and that you're a terminal value so you we hadn't really dealt with the problem of this kind of recap so yes you're doing it right but my question is how much is it worth also you said the stock was ninety four closed at one oh six so is so is undervalued actually what's that a within like ten or twelve percent of something that's not enough i i would need a discount of twenty or thirty or you know more percent because a ten percent fluctuation like that in a discount and free cash flow all you have to do is change if you variables a little bit and you'll get you'll get a ten twelve percent fluctuation so so i disagree that it shows that the stock is undervalued at that price because you know you can't pinpoint these things we made some guesses about the future and did some math we didn't really you figure out what's gonna happen in the future and i think i'll leave it there because as you see the problem is not whether or not you did this right it's what's worse if you do it right and i think it's not worth a lot i like what we do better where we figure out what's baked into the current share price and if it's extreme enough pessimism then we go for it but good question and i have to say branding gay you're my dream listener you went and i did a show at freak out or you know rance a brief rant on the very simple idea about free cash flow analysis and you went and did it so good on you brand new k thank you for listening you're awesome number three thank you for the podcast dan this is from mike gee thank you for the podcast dan i would like to hear more of the thought processes you had before putting on a specific trade i'm not asking for your current trades i think the listening audience would be very happy to hear about what you were thinking as you put on trades in the past maybe why are why they didn't work out for example i love when you talked about your thought process regarding all these minerals you previously talked about buying put options protection and would love to hear you're inter mindset before putting on a trade like that i think it would help us all expand creative thinking ps tell porter to get out of baltimore while you still can mike g a baltimore is not that bad mike i was born and raised there anyway thank you mike 'em so you know the best look i hate to do this but it's the truth the best way to get my thought process history extreme value okay and if you go to extreme value offer dot com you'll have her latest offer but as far as you mentioned the put options for protection and you wanna hear my inner mindset minor mindset is when i did it a couple of times we were at the most extreme valuations ever seen in the stock market in history higher the nineteen twenty nine higher than march of two thousand and i thought well i i want a little bit of protection here because you don't know what's gonna happen and i wouldn't hold stocks i don't pretend i know the future sure so i want some insurance an insurance was cheap if you look at you know just the basics like look at look at where the vix is compared to where it's been and look where a skew index the thirty day look at at tail risk hedging you know these things or when i put on puts these things were scraping the bottom and you know i i don't know so much about i don't know all the complicated massive people used to trade options like every day i'm not like one of those guys but it was it wasn't insurance play for me hope that helps thank you mike gee i'm gonna leave you is one more very short email you remember i talked about whether or not i should call de opening ran went around at all in one of our readers was a neurosurgeon he said you should call it a perjury beijing and i just thought that was funny because it's obviously a very unwieldy term and we would never do that but one leader gary ass wrote it and says he loves it long lives the perturbation which i think is hilarious so thank you gary us and thank you also to andrew al lance cage fd chris h a david w you bruce s g barge one in dan t and the rain after writing in this week because there were a lot of great comments in there and i want

Work in Progress with Sophia Bush

Chef Kwame Onwuachi

"They're still going hi everyone Sophia Bush here welcomed a work in progress where I talked to people who inspire me about how they got to where they are and where the this all star chef crushing appreciate it and I'm curious like where this all began it all started on a cold night in New York now I I should probably tell people how you and I know each other so I was back in Korea to lack of diversity and find dining to some of the biggest lessons he's learned so far enjoy I really now I like to take things back to get back yeah I want start at the beginning I wanNA start at the beginning but I guess before I start I mean I say me because it felt really personally amazing but really all of us you made all of us the best rice I've ever had and I was like excuse me are legendary and this one was big because it was to kick off this big conference that was happening and how I mean God how many people did you cook for like really hoping he opens up something soon here in La because well because his food is delicious we talk about everything from his childhood in the Bronx and in by the kitchen hot you got like the first place well also you came to say hi and we met at that table that I was sitting and you made eighty people hundred pupil a little over a hundred people and I got really lucky because I was playing musical tables when the entrees came out I was cool people in that room yet were like we were all like vibrating yeah it was a vibe night the people at the wherever we were at that place definitely in which she writes about in his memoir notes from a young black

Oscars for food this is a huge deal Qui- has a fascinating story April of Twenty nineteen and Quest Love was hosting food sawn in New York and like any of you follow him on Instagram you know that Amir's foods launched this actually so I have to early food memories one is the sense of a goofy stew which is like a Nigerian dish is like an the national dish I like that one table and then moved

have some more yeah I think you ate like three helpings I three bowls of rice oh that's smell is like very very distinctive so that was my earliest accent and then my first food memory is curried goat racing peas and it was just made my own toasted coconut milk and ginger and garlic puree in there as well so it's pretty pretty special it was it was a good night there was a lot of wish we could tell all the listeners what you're here for but we can talk about how we on ramp yeah but it's GonNa be really good but before we get into what you're doing that's a that's a loaded quite a loaded question okay well I'll give you a softer question first and then you can tell me because you your childhood in particularly interested in as it relates to food do you have a first memory about food is it is it a small as a dish it's it's a couple of dishes wing you know so they couldn't go out to eat at restaurants so a lot of people had juke joints in the back of their homes or fish fries or little bars so in doughboy Rotea like a Chadian dish yeah me and my family is always been involved with food you know even back to my grandmother and great Emma they all had restaurants and they didn't have fancy restaurants but they lived in Beaumont Texas and like the sixties so you know Jim Crow was in full swing then you add bitter melon seeds so they take melon seeds and they dry them out and then they crush them into a powder and you add that then you add whatever stock you're gonna be using whether it's like chicken stock chicken so on and so forth I'm an you finish it with a bitter leaves or spinach leaves and you serve it with pounded Yam Jerry next Agila rice so it's shrimp powder smoked shrimp powder cook with onions and garlic and ginger in palm oil they can you know eat or enjoy themselves without being harassed so you know my grandmother had a barbecue place my great grandmother had a fish fry joint so it's always been in my ingredients and that's I really got into cooking and just experimenting so yeah I wish I had started learning to make anything when I was five it's it's another early memory that I have for me so I was a kid that was like into things I was always like into doing oh like time well spent with my family it wasn't like doing a tedious task alone you weren't like washing windows no we're all in the kitchen together laughing joking so like because it's that's in you how did you enjoy it then like as a kid did you get really curious I did it was more of a chore but it was still things my hands you know I never really enjoyed school but I was in the talented and gifted program but I didn't like doing homework or tests or things like that so I his ten and we had to help everything from feeling shrimp staring ru and my sister would go off and help with the events I was stuck at home with the babysitter and a bunch of police started veering off on the wrong path at an early age growing up in the Bronx as easy to do that especially you left your own laurels a lot growing up in New York City like you start taking the family when my mother cooked because she had a catering coming this shepherded from the house pro very illegally me and my sister became a first to employees I was five and my sister train at a young age you know to school so my mom saw that and she wanted to nip that in the bud so she sent me she told me I was going to Nigeria into the country from Legos and I remember it was like September that's nice school starts in the city of New York and I called her and we have to drive to a call center or two weeks for vacation to visit my grandfather that lived there in a small village in in Nigeria in Abruzzo it's like three hours winds like if you waited to your laundry like you you were you're fucked like it was a lot of close that you had to wash by hand you know and it was a chief of the village called ob so we had a nicer house than most but it was still very modest compared to you know being in America back and it was a culture shock you know like we didn't have electricity there was no running water and there was no hot water we wash there was a washing machine and just get on the phone like that to drive an hour away wait in line and I was like what am I coming back home and she was like you're not not until you learn respect and my heart dropped the Harry Potter movie was just about to come out and you're there was so many things that I was going to miss the and and so how old were you ten you were ten and how long have you been there when said one of my coming home two months and he had two wives because he's the chief of the village so he had like clout and that's like tradition over there and it was had to other cousins that were there from America just on a cultural retreat essentially that their parents send them on and you know I went to school out there very very different than okay so it was sort of like summer break and then you're like something's going on I was like what's what's up so ended up being two years until I came back quickly to do the right thing wow so yeah it was it was intense you know we raise our own livestock you know cultivated own produce so I think that's one of the things that gave me a lot of respect for ingredients in the kitchen is having that you know that background yeah and and I would imagine roane and watered and nurtured picked and boxed and shipped like the number of hands in the amount of people who've had to be a part of for where things really come from energy that's put into them exactly we so often forget about the fact that our food has been more independent right I quickly get a job and I'm like fending for myself at that point so when you say you got back into the things that it and when you cultivate your own livestock produce when you're really raising the food that you're eating that's that's a whole nother we're like can you pay a picture of where you were living is this is this city is a town village of Puzo you know my grandfather you know he's learned how to survive and I think at that point and it was it was just ready to come it was it was time to come home yeah I mean you you learn thing you know whatever whatever it is that you're responsible exactly I think learning true responsibility by the whole other thing a whole other set of survival skills to your point you learned to do the right thing you learned to respect your teachers your food your family your space your clothes you're supposed to be doing these not to this extent what you're supposed to be exploring and finding yourself at this stage now when your ten share and it was just time you know I think my grandparents were very aware and we're like okay it's time for him to go home like there's nothing else that we can do here at this point I was younger when I came back what's the social pressure in the neighborhood that creates the pathway to that kind of like a sense of together all of amongst all of my friends and when I when we did he made me hold its head up and was like don't look at it in the eye you got to see really early what happens at twelve when you come back to the Bronx at twelve I come back to the Bronx about getting over that sort of paralyzation that comes with eating fear of doing what you want but I I'm very curious remember when so I used to name all the chickens because they were like my friends you know but doesn't that make it so hard yeah but I couldn't help it right I didn't have a video game earn thirteen and I'm I'm back in it I'm back into doing the things that got sent out there honestly you know how did your mom know when you had to her point learn respect and you were ready to come home I think half of it she missed me it was like I was gone for a long period of time a moment came back as American teenager so I quickly got back into the things I sent me out there but it wasn't until I got older that I really appreciated the things that I went through and the things that I had so I was going to Catholic school and then I got kicked out of Catholic school my senior year just coincidentally my mom moved away as well and I wasn't James and it's it's real so yeah I think any I would not be here right now if it wasn't for that I don't think I came back any better are I'd imagine level of kind of respect an intimacy is connection to what yeah sees a great word for that it's like on this will teach you to respect the things that you eat that they actually come from somewhere no there that just bought in the cellophane package you know some of them have you know America if you didn't do your homework in America just get attention if you don't do your homework to like carry a cinderblock across the soccer field six times so you learned very career so for me I remembered the way that I got into it was mom had moved to Louisiana like my last year of high school I was like a class clown and I would like pull pranks on teachers in it was just got to a point where they had enough so I started going to and so I was pretty much on my own I live with my stepfather but I didn't really respect him as a as a father figure really so I was just student loans man so crazy it's interesting to me because one of the things that I think gets me problem than just like a kid you know you're actually fighting people in different territories so that sense of togetherness where you can go some place and everyone has have here and why he needs to take matters into your own hands sometimes because there's so many opportunities here you just need to do them right Oh yeah I well I wanNA talk to you not physically but like fighting to like have them treat you like person you know you're doing that at school most of the teachers see you as a threat and something like that without helping your friend and they take that like extremely seriously right now where I'm from so after that then I was essentially initiated into this I didn't ask to be but is there anything spiked he's my imagination and I remember my grandfather was like we have to kill one of the chickens you can choose which one you want so I had to make a decision college because when I went there didn't really have a dime to my name so that was a way that I knew I can make money and help pay off my tuition so l. so we still had a good relationship you know I was definitely going back down that path which I continued into college you're back metaphorically or physically is refreshing especially to a lot of people that don't have you know positive role models influences it there's friction but also a little bit I think more you know looking at it outside looking in more of an understanding like okay now you're in this awkward phase of your life and that was that talk about in the book in more detail but yeah so that's how I got into that and it's kind of like it just snowballed after that I would just like is that when the world looks at it from the outside in and goes that's bad in those those kids must be bad kids and you know there's there's a during my own thing you know I started selling drugs got into a gang and it happened kind of by accident but once you're in it you're just in it you know I had gone to a fight ernest you know growing up in the South Bronx it's like you're you're fighting everywhere you go like in the fighting the police you know what you saw out there what is that then what's that relationship like with your mom what is friction or you just so out because you have a job at this point they were going to beat him up so then I fought him and then after that they initiated me into the game because I I won the fight essentially it's very complicated but bat didn't help me and I got jumped at the end and he was saying there so then when we all came back it was like it had been written I had to fight him or else the school down the street from where I lived and I got into a fight with the kid there was a kid there that was from our block safe you have safety in numbers you have safety ins community and I think the the complication of when you feel safe somewhere other you're thinking about abusive relationships for a lot of women or you're thinking about like gang violence is that there is within this space you know which got me kicked out of college would you would you share what that is or would you prefer to leave a little vague does fine I mean I was into our lives in a gang but that somewhere is also made of danger or a requirement like you said to fight or to defend or you know rules to like being in that environment and it's a pecking order yeah if you're GONNA if you're you know it's as you can't witness act of my environment like then I started even I was working at McDonalds I was still selling drugs and I carried that on with me to high school bit of respite there and I appreciate the way that you highlight the reality that in an environment that wasn't mhm it's extremely difficult to figure out what you're supposed to navigate those waters without having any guidance at some guy because he just had a scar on his face in tattoos I thought he was interesting and like he cursed me out for looking at him his eyes and Luckily Jay Quan was there able to sell drugs there without any repercussions and I felt like I had made it in the in the sense like I was I felt more safe at that moment even though I was in more extreme danger but I didn't really put two and two together because you exist in the vessel that you're contained by and so you went from being a kid fringe quantity he's not here anymore and he kept doing that he stayed in that lifestyle you know we both got kicked out of school at the same time we were both selling drugs together but we both were together for so long in our life that he could have easily he could easily be where I'm at right now you know if because I had positive role models like my mother you know my father but I think back to like what could I have done differently in that moment you know 'cause like my clothes yeah you know but instinct I remember when I first so the reason why even like Kinda got into all of that was like my best friend his name is Jay Quan Miss School that he works at that like is one of those places that his sort of forgotten and where people are like that's all you know that horrible term that's lost learn what relationships we want to be in by being in bad ones we learn how to be better humans by the ways that we screw up and I a gentle nudge or or an understanding of someone or or just empathy it's hard though especially as a kid and we he got off like a stop ahead of me on the train in one day I was like Oh let's let me go to your house and he lives in the projects and had never even been to the project I I heard the most inspiring thing back in April actually not long after I saw you my friend Sarah Elizabeth Lewis is a professor at Harvard and she held the meaning called vision injustice and one of the speakers there talked about how they turned around the extreme violence program in before I lived around the corner from them but you don't really fear into them unless you know somebody there but I remember being so scared walking through there like not at in know anyone I remember I was looking at so he was like he's cool he's cool and I remember three years after that I was in a gang like in the gang there I was ever it it becomes really confusing and I don't know I just I I think about how hard that must be as a kid hi to access and like you talk about your teachers looking at you as a threat instead of as a child to like help foster growth in and yeah and and we we treat so many kids we treat so many people like they're in a prison system like they've done something bad and then we go good to know how to love people in ways that will be transformative for them because we learned that as we age generally the hard way like it's interesting because there's such a I think failure of analysis of the lack of options in the system for any person who is being done list when we talk about elements that go into the sort of social pressure cooker that create dangerous toxic situations for people like I even think back you know like it's really hard but like what more I could have done in that situation because I hear I am totally chain turn my life around and I don't know I would have pushed harder or something like that so like I think taking away like this always on that can be done you know whether it's I am beyond excited for all of you to hear today's episode our guest is chef kwami on watching who is itself yeah that's really yeah I don't know I'm just I'm struck it's a lot it's tough you know and I think I think it's such a beautiful sign like anytime I'm talking to a person I really respect who says like in hindsight I think about I would have done this any kid not be something they can't see how does any kid know what they don't know 'cause even now as an adult I have to check myself and be like well I don't know what I don't know differently that differently I'm like oh it's so cool to hear people talk about the ways that they did they grow and they consider things but also I think about kids and I'm just like how does us and they said we fired all of our security guards and hired arts teachers we change it all everything we brought art and drama into our schools weird that this community is you know experiencing violence and it's like well what what are we doing to support people children especially who are finding them did who was getting cursed out and threatened by someone to being a boy who wasn't being threatened by anyone and you think oh I'm doing something right exactly sometimes I need to ask questions and that can be kind of embarrassing but I'm GonNa adult so I'm like not embarrassed to admit that I don't know but oh my God has sixty in every kid is required to take those classes and test scores are up filing cabinet for creativity yes you need sometimes you don't most adults still don't want to be vulnerable you know I mean I haven't gone therapist I'm all about vulnerability but I'd I've literally paid the price for it it's not cheap in your old I was like I know I know you know there's such there's such a thing where like you're so afraid and your little teenage body that you don't want to admit that you're afraid that kind of like a revelatory lightning rod moment yeah you hear people who've done exceptional things talk about that just doc hungover drugs stupor my house full of people I don't even know like sleeping everywhere and Obama's walking across the stage and into him he worked for it and this is what I'm doing with my life right now I need to stop before diskettes even more serious than it is oh like there was there good yeah and the light switch flipped and once it's on like once the room is illuminated you can't unseat cannon see it does that was while and I remember I got caught like smoking weed on like the steps of school and they made us take like a drug that was selling for me I was like yeah I'm going back to Louisiana he's like okay cool is give me everything and I was like no I flushed down the toilet 'cause I don't Wanna see your life ruined as well and he was and I don't know I don't know what it was but I remember flushing all of my drugs down the toilet giving away what I couldn't flush the last range because I never had this that amount of money right after worry about my next meal or anything so I'm very comfortable I'm you know reckless so you're in the Bronx and then where do you go to college and how does all this keep going so I go to Bridgeport University of Bridgeport Connecticut and you know I start selling so like I like there's no way it's not going to happen and when I saw him do that I was like I have not even realize my true potential if this black man is so angry with me because I mean I understand his point of view doing this yesterday and it was like thousands of dollars worth of drugs just like asked I obviously failed admitted to it so they let me stay in school but I had to move off campus and they just got worse I mean now is the president of the United States right now and did not think about anything but had his mind set on something he had a dream had a goal he made it happen it wasn't given and I voted for him but I was like there's no way he's going to be a black president like there's no way it's only been like at that point like thirty five years since Jim Crow was a start selling everything I'm selling alcohol in my room like these little nutcrackers which is like a bronx cocktail They serve on the streets in the summertime. I bring that up that my Angelo quote you know you don't know better you can't do better than so you know better and better do better and it's like at that I remember telling the guy that eliminated in all areas whether it's sports or you know public access or things like that and paper on yeah on paper at thrown out and I remember we had a screaming match you know because I was like his boss at the time and I'm like you don't see the bigger picture this is like then have to like walk past security guards or Ra's or anything I'm just like doing whatever I wanna do and I remember just waking up in like a drunk spend money I had I just bought a one-way ticket to Louisiana and moved back home when my mom started cooking because it was the only thing I knew how to do wow report start selling that start selling weed ecstasy and I'm Kinda like this now I'm not even going to class anymore I'm just making my life it is a class to offense like you would go to jail for a long time if you had just one of these on you I don't WanNa see you in jail like understand what I'm doing is for the best and we didn't talk for a long time until he came to one of my dinners because I did pop up around the country and stopped in Miami and what was that like seeing him it's actually a funny story because it was great it was really good seeing him but I used to give speeches before my dinners thank you shameless plug but I'm doing it so it's really not it's like for me it's a it's a really joyful pluck but pretty much and that's how I got really comfortable speaking in public I needed time because all of my stuff like this happened so most chefs when you're young you things up so I would tell my whole life story like this long poetic thing but I ended up which will probably get to later selling candy on the train or to fund my first catering company coming different techniques it's about like ego about showing that you can do all these things I had so many components on my first course needed to buy time so they can play it this is after I saw the drugs and everything so I was talking about that and he didn't know that part of me so he laughed in the middle of my speed I had to like pull him aside listen man like I don't do that anymore I actually meant skittles and eminem selling it saving up a dollar at a time it was cool though that was cool seeing what a moment okay listeners I have a story for you Dylan Moskowitz who is the CEO at Cafe Alterra needed to hire a director of coffee for his organic coffee.

started making money you didn't have to worry about where your next meal was coming from and Oh yeah it was it was tough and even when I got older it wasn't like I would have a full meal all the time you know and that's one of the reasons why elite besides like tuna fish sandwiches and I don't eat tuna fish this day because of that food memory of having to eat it so often so a touch on because you said something illuminating about being in school and you know being means something to me or I can connect with because I'd rather like put a lot into one then spread between like thirty different fundraisers house but that didn't mean it was always accessible because catering is a seasonal gig right you know so like during the busy season Lee you know I think as we get more popular were always asked to be a part of different charities Redo fundraisers and things like that and I'm I really aligned with stuff that security growing up as well you know circumstantial that's unfortunate but that also made me really appreciate food and nurture in the summertime right before the holidays we really busy but there'd be times when my mom wouldn't have any gigs so we didn't know when the next time we're going to re is a year you know so this company or not profitable no kid hungry that make sure or tries to end childhood hunger but hiring people and making sure I'm thinking about food ways in my restaurants and making sure to your point about nurturing that food isn't just was there a lot of like food insecurity in your childhood was happy you know I know you said there was always food happening in one of their main things is getting school lunches and breakfasts is in school because those are those are my only meals growing up yeah you know on the meal so like we're not operating table no one's dying like just chill it's okay we had a bad service we'll get through it and we'll do it again tomorrow and sometimes all the time when they're like really hard on themselves about a service or whatever I'm like listen everyone who's coming here is not starving so if they're waiting and I think people forget that sometimes right and then we get all caught up in this like fine dining world and you know all about service and doing the perfect played on your way you slam the table in fire somebody if their ten minutes late bows just a normal thing for me coming up in like fine dining so doing this like yeah I'm all about that too I've been doing it for a long time but there's also that other side of people actually eating just survive you know on that relaunches in the summer like we would go there we would go to the school in the summer and eat lunch in that's the only way like we can all eat so so yeah there was food this is a big jump from first job well for job really was at home peeling shrimp but then like your first tastes good but it's actually nourishing someone body yeah it keeps people alive people forget about that you know it's funny when I talked to my Sushi in an extra twenty five minutes for their food they're eating here they're out eating because they're bored or the it's an experience it's not they're not here to get there like dying how does this happen you move back to Louisiana you're working with your mom because she'd moved down there your senior high school so I moved back there and I just started working my mom actually moved to New Orleans in left me in I was in Baton Rouge Louisiana like not even in New Orleans so then I was I would commute to New Orleans she actually I haven't seen that kind of money in a long time and it's still aligns with what I'm trying to do so sign me up so I signed up and they were job at McDonald's to fine dining obviously this odd college career between what happened definitely very I mean it's the same thing he product of your environment you know it's what I saw so I thought that that was normal I thought it was normal to yell at people and if things aren't going Dan in Louisiana dishwasher yeah in Louisiana they wouldn't even let me see the tests to see what I could improve on and it was math I've always been extremely good at math doesn't really require much studying for basic mathematics you know so anyway I started a dishwasher there then I became a waiter and then I became like a short order and the way that it was it was a head chef and a assistant chef and you cooked for forty people every single day ride in the kitchen you know when I was a toddler so yes so I used to travel back and forth and they had a lot of ten people working for them as a catering company and one guy was like yeah Frans I worked. I started dishwasher on his Co. they told me I failed an aptitude tests but on it was there were only people of Color in the dish pit trying to get anybody out there to cook in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico of like it was it was one of the craziest things I've ever seen like oil as far as I can see okay hotel worked in a Mexican restaurant in fish fry joint in I just took it all in and then I was mm-hmm I started cooking for people like I was in charge of ordering I was in charge of menu planning things like that and I got really into it so then I saved up that money and back to New York after the oil was cleaned up and I started working in restaurants I worked at craft orcas city winery and really respective I mean you're you're never going to be the chef that's like some of the guys on TV who scream and throw things at people I think I've graduated out of that I think earlier in my career I was making more money than me per hour if you broke it down and if you did eight hour shifts the proper shifts he was making double the amount of money that I was making well so much experience like creating on my own but I cook stuff I grew up eating and people really liked it so that was like the first one boat yeah so I figured I started catering company and I remember coming home on the train one day and a kid walked on the train he was selling the Started getting into it more but I felt like I I was like yearning for that like creating my own food like I did on the quit my job and I bought a tiny candy and got on the subway and started selling save up for catering company that's amazing I wanna go back to the boat changed my mind about social media because like I was a kid were counted TV show in the attention of the world in the height of gossip blogs felt so awful to me I was I'd spent a lot of time down there it's just a place I love and the Food I love and I used to fly down there from North Carolina all the time on we for a minute I'm I'm so interested in what that experience was like so you don't know this but the reason that I finally the oil spill that happened they're paying like crazy amounts of money like nineteen hundred dollars a week to go out there and like cook for these pirates that cleaning up this oil like signed me black everywhere the sense could like pat make you pass out if you're on the doc for long enough and I went out there and I was cooking nick material and they said we don't get paid if we get photographed at a respirator and the next day I came back what I would I put myself further out on the Internet and then deepwater horizon happened and I had been I'd lived in New Orleans for a summer it's still makes me emotional and I was just like oh we're going to do that thing where we realizing that all these young kids mostly young black man who were cleaning up on the beach or being bussed in from these inner I'm chef of like the biggest catering company in New Orleans flirty catering which is like more really cool to see her get to that point when I was there and we were like side by side I just do this one week and then I'm on the water for three weeks and I was what do you mean on the water for three weeks whereas I mean is like yeah working to deport horizon oil spill that he with these guys and they're probably so racist they're going to give me a hard time and it was actually quite the opposite they were like representation dinner so after about three weeks I became the head chef of the boat and I was just cooking things my mom taught me how to cook you know I didn't really have that they called me and we're like is so bad it's so bad and everything on TV is ally and I was like coming and I that's when I started a twitter account eighty communities being paid minimum wage and I got one kid to finally admit to me excels like wire none of you wearing respirators like these are this is raw carcinogen the most picture like the most country looking white person you've ever seen like I was terrified when I got on there because I was like I'm not GonNa have anything alive but because this billion dollar oil company doesn't want the news to see people wearing respirators because they want us to think that it's not that bad what boat or something like that and so the way that they would clean it up was like the boat would emit like this semi ring out of the on can you paint a picture for Arizona responder boats so it's like it's not a giant boat I don't really know dimension fit sixty knows it was it was bad I mean there was there's an alarm that would go off so we couldn't be on there or else we would like pass out or die and what were you told me to turn my camera off and you can't but they would threaten people and if you didn't have a lawyer with you wouldn't know and the thing that I will never forget lack of it and it would skim the top of the guys had to put this back on the top of the waters and hold it down to suck off the oil off the top of the boat and I basically started broadcasting like a citizen journalist from Gulf shores and I got threatened with arrest I got threatened with strip searches oh that was it I mean the boat didn't really have much we had our our bunks and then there was like an entertainment room but it was just a room food yeah and you know I definitely thought think that they would have gotten along with my friends back in the Bronx they were just so chill and down to earth and the same place to try to interview these kids and they had all been threatened in there like we're not allowed to talk to you like they know you have a camera and they know you're on TV and like half you're selling candy save up all this money and you start working in these restaurants and you're working in the real aw yeah wow some of my I it's like true very blatant run-ins with racism was in the very very cool and we ate the same foods like 'cause I grew up cooking creole food with my mom so that's why we had this connection in the connection came through ends and the there's some folks at an organization called Global Green men two of their biggest environmental attorneys live in New Orleans to do is clean up oil eaten sleep that was literally and they were from like the backwoods Louisiana these are like these I'm candy for basketball team whatever you know and I kind of laughed in the beginning this kid just made like five dollars in two minutes I did the math and early maybe twice the size of this room so maybe like four hundred square feet with a TV and a DVD player so all these guys had south that never really had to deal with that in New York it was very subtle in New York and like you stay in your place in my place like that but Ooh and yeah it was a it was an interesting very interesting dynamic but not everybody was like that there was some people that were in the south that was like totally different and what's it like so you you're there aura of I want to start from the bottom because I had to start from the bottom of my first time in those restaurants so I think everyone starts from the bottom you know when you're in those like hyper find kind of mask and what does that mean words like lazy ignorant stupid you know things that can be massed restaurants but the same feelings that I had you know the same isolating feelings that I had the same looks that I would is all the ship but I was like like getting verbally abused by these sheriffs in Louisiana and I was like I have two attorneys with me who will tell you every reason that everything that you're saying is a lie and you can so you have to start as a dishwasher or is it different I mean it's different but the same feelings were there you know and it was that that extremely racist like when I first got on the boat the head chef of the boat was like okay I just need to know do you know how to read because I have a lot of people come in on here not knowing how to read and I was like get I I would get in these restaurants and they're you know more strategic about it their HR departments and stuff like that so you can't be as open but there are other words that you can use that can be place because I was like you know what you Cook Your Food I cook my food I'll do breakfast lunch dinner breakfast and we'll rotate that way but I'm not we're not are how long were you on the boat did you say the whole summer and so what happens you go back to New York you you do the the fine dining space what is what is that experience like for you is it do you have the same moment you had in Louisiana we're like that'd be we're not GonNa do this he's like oh no I can tell now that you're educated and I was like this whole we stop talking to me right now just just stop I want to I'm going to ask you some questions I know from the book because not everyone is listening as read it yet but you're all going to you're going to go on or this book immediately because it's beautiful put like the deadliest worst and worst paying jobs on on these he's learning still kids nicer they can have respiratory problems with her arrested this conversation I just walked out with I have literally nothing to talk to you about and walked out and I'm that's the guy that I read from by the normalize bravado of being you know this the chef that can say and do as they please like oh they say these things to everyone and it's like no they say they say to me in a different way or they make different jokes that they don't say it's everyone thanks so people are more aware of what they're saying and how that small little quote unquote aside can be viewed and how that can really affect somebody because I think minuet similar in that fact that there are many people that would break under that being to happen whether it's a look from somebody on your way to work and then or someone not looking at I guess I say that only to say I can only imagine what the experiences when you are the one person of color jokes you when it's a one off experience and that can be perceived as a joke but when there are institutionalized things that are continuing Justin Phillips wrote about this when he interviewed you any talks about being the only black food writer and a major newspaper and he's he bowl and and I see how drastically changes when they're become three four five women in the room with those same fifty men and so yeah it does I'm sorry had to deal with that it's part of the game you know but it's as part of part of the change as well as talking about it was born I experienced white privilege every day of my life but I've been the one woman in the room with fifty men and I know is people have to sometimes do that unfortunately and those are the things that kill you when you go home yeah you know that you wish you would have spoken up about like you and you have to sometimes you the laugh at jokes that you necessarily wouldn't to kind of continue to get ahead and I think most marginal and so he thought before he met you and I think about and not that it is in any way the same like I was born in the body matter structured the higher the wrong the more rare melanin becomes a fact that can be applied both to kitchen talent in media puts just the way it is or so I thought in a space and to your point people say like oh he's addict to everybody in its I'm the only person he calls ignorant or lazy or whatever the yeah it's not you who needs to change its the behavioral patterns of the Industry that needs to be excised exactly so what hap how do you you know they're not GonNa take that little joke or they're going to not come back to work record they're gonNA leave the industry and it's happened so times so many times people of color looking at you and your eyes when you're talking and then a joke from this person in the joke from that person when it gets to that joke from from that person one it's not solicited I didn't ask for this how do you manage in that environment when when there is that entire added layer of pressure your intersectional experience adjective is that that Ha- that has a stereotyped Oleg AC- in this country that is steeped in racism so you know what it means yes but also you have no idea what my day is been like up into this point you know and that's I understand you when you're saying that because it sucks Eh and when people tell you that your experience is not your experience you're just like Kay be in my body for the day tell me when that guy like makes the way things are said and jokes are made and references are made to me and jokes are made about me and then I'm told I'm sensitive if I say that made me uncomfortable what are your coping mechanisms how do you how do you stay in those kitchens unfortunately I have to put your head down and keep moving references and or point of reference but at that point it was just like you make your you you stand your ground where you can in his words are so beautiful I'm in the hole artists beautiful beautiful but he says that was crazy he says in the restaurant world this is a byproduct of the way the fame you know in a let it be known that you're uncomfortable when you can and hopefully people will get the hint but in order to rise up through the hierarchy sometimes one of the biggest one was leaving that world and venturing out in finding my voice as a chef so leaving the fine dining kitchens that I was in got to put your head down and keep pushing and use that as fuel to keep going and that's what I did what felt like some of your biggest steps okay God says in the script Mussa watcher walkaway can't wait for that part I think okay that was that was a joke joke but but the my particular to use the metaphor like my kitchen was so unwelcoming to me and that's a big deal when you cold yeah just didn't feel right you know we talked about this before we got on the mic about relationships and grow the day in and day out like the my kitchen was so cold and I just went oh like some of the people at the top like my mentors mazing I mean it's an institution so they're doing something right but there were certain things that I did not want to do at the same time my God I had this experience where they're like you know maybe this industry just isn't for me and like it is for you it has no place for that that's driving you away from it you know your dream job and if you can look around and no you're worth then you need to be real with yourself and take what you can from this experience and either move on Ooh I I did the big thing I did the thing everyone's supposed to do and it's not for me I I have to learn stones I give you walk us through getting into the fine dining world to finally you know opening your first restaurant like what were this sort of pinnacles for you Z. Caring about every aspect bet you do you know and working with integrity anyway so you know it was it was something that there were definitely things that I wanted to take a take from that experience that were really now so that was one of the biggest that was that was a huge point to turning point in my career and it was a lot of learning I got my dream job I got like my Dream Show and I was loud man out and supper club and they had outpost in every major city so I did one in New York when I was still working at the restaurants and a good thing and the most important thing I think anyone who's listening should should do is know your worth and I think if you're even if you're in a position what's great here and then be really real with myself about everything here that is not for me and then I'm GonNa go create something that's it or something before it goes to the plate you know you're GonNa care about her all the way through and that's the kind of things that I try to teach my cooks as well that caring about that towel being work without like my side Tau kitchen towel being folded perfectly next city on my station you know and I take pride in that because if you can both as an adult and how you have to go to certain things to find out what's right for you you know and I think you learn from everything and you can learn from everything if you're looking at things I think those those things are I mean I can't really put a price on that and I learned that there you know from you know I can't even then go into pop ups around the world all my mentor told me that I was crazy you're on the on this objectively just put your head down Staw goodstuff somewhere else but that's a scary it's hard leap it's hard for jumping off a building it's hard especially I think the apart because you have everyone telling you that crazy crazy for leaving your on a great trajectory you know you're doing well why would you start from scratch Mike Creator fucking legends was sky ever I still think is the best guy ever like I was divided just work with you every day I'd stay forever you know it's a ten city tour and the chef that gets the best score can quantify this will fund their first restaurant and I was like you know I think now we're in greater space and I think the more people talk about it the the easier it is to not have to put your head down you can actually talk about it and you can have it was the hardest student I ever had to make I remember like thinking about this so hard like asking every single person I knew like what should I do faith and you know started a member my first city I think it was Miami and it was so hard like incredibly difficult service commanding a kitchen getting down to Miami and getting everybody on board they can peel little tomatoes in you know for three days and we cooked for two hundred people and that's where I saw my friend Johnny who worked for me and I did that speech about selling candy From there I I did that I ended up winning the competition they went bankrupt the one and luckily a Lotta people that came to those dinners I wanted to invest first restaurant and I chose DC why I really like the mentors like you are an idiot if you leave this restaurant like do not do this to your career and who's your mentor at the time people that I did catering as I went cooking for that Like I was so I did a a tour around the world and stopped in every major city and tell me see my grandfather that lived in Nigeria he was he came to America in like the fifties or something like that and started you were you were at per se you like doing the things when I was doing what everyone is supposed to be doing in the right so you talked about how that felt so John for us how this happens so you leave your job Samna do pop-ups and then how do you do that so I worked at this company called dinner labs not around anymore but it was a I did well everywhere I went so I had you know cooked in ten different cities for like five hundred people everywhere I went I had offers on the table make marmalades out of red pepper skin it was like a had had them doing very intense work for like a small payout for them You know I was only there it's the space for one 'cause I toward the spaces of the people that were interested and my grandfather taught at Howard University so I spent my summers in DC the end of the meal the guests have scorecard in there like brutally honest they raised you from one to five on tastes creativity temperature what would they pay for this meal if they had to pay again a four point eight out of five and they were like Oh this is awesome we're doing a tour with ten of the best chefs we've worked with we're GONNA send you all around to all of our and what comments would you write to the chef anonymously like it was it was brutally honest here so I did the dinner danced for you know other other sous chefs in the restaurant you know chefs in the pass routes I've worked at my mother you know very controversial for a Nigerian its name from Ghana for Nigerian person to name anyone in their family their daughter their son of God he mentored him you know stokely Carmichael changes named Equateur he was a huge civil rights activists who created like you know black power that's that's that guy take care of that towel that's used to like clean up your your area around you how you're gonNA treat that piece of steak Mahar you're gonNA treat that piece of Broccoli people that I worked with back in the catering days so like there was it was it was a group of influential people in my life and you know half of them were like you're an idiot it is so important and it means so much so they're definitely things that I take away from it you know but yeah that that's the hardest yeah and he laughed in the crowd so like skittled promise you but but yes so that's that's how it all started academic seen taught it's Tuskegee University he taught at our university yet he was very

Shaw yes Shabbes zombies you and is that before is just starting my career so for me was like I was just being unapologetically me which also got kicked off the show pop chef is after todd in the middle of it being bill since restaurants always have delays that went on top chef as winches to four inches in order to supply of water for like the fire suppression system to go off you know like it's like a nightmare so it took a lot longer than we thought in Hong Kong wow so I picked up a lot of things there and my friends were chefs everywhere I went over there so like they were showing me like fine dining restaurants street go like that yeah wow so yes so I had stated uh I've chosen see I had some connection to it and I like the I think I brought a little bit but not really I had just come off a long trip to Asia four month so I brought a lot of things from you how to make stuff at home this is my dream trip it was it was a lot of fun don't worry when we go to Africa you'll learn a lot of stuff and but no and the funny thing was wasn't even upset with them like it wasn't coming from a place of malcontent it was like I may producer I've tried to do this and their teen season thirteen yeah you know I yeah I was really young so like I I've I didn't really have anything to lose slogan influence you know some of your your kind of food your mom's kind of food into it or did you really just have to Kinda sticky can take the helm of company or starbucks yourself credit I'm just like for us little like the everything I cooked but one million meals in your life tell me about number two hundred sixty four episode thirteen zero three I don't know I cooked that's when I started doing catering and then catering and clarisse one day and applied and got in and that's so cool there's like so yes so top chef called in the middle of it and I went on that and I came back and restaurant it was fun Adiga time I like competing that will like really inspiring me at the time were you learning new food techniques yeah I was in India I was in Thailand I was in Vietnam Danny restaurants I wanted to showcase all of those things so it would like translate into people paying customers coming to me you know yes so I brought a lot of that because that's what I was like really into and also I've just come off a huge dining kick and I was about to open up Brian and Adamy powered by some cast and we were like doing everything putting tiles pain the walls putting drywall up like and you know I format months to be a profitable or be running efficiently it's like I don't care what you're doing three months is not enough time you know so needed a really cool team which I felt was probably the most diverse team in the fine dining you know spectrum at the time oh a two million dollar projects to dig we had to break into the sidewalk to change the pipes yeah also was quote unquote not an option and to me at that time like coming from ten dollars an hour on two hundred thousand dollars is

Woody and Wilcox show. So here's where you get informed and feel better about yourself. We've got three stories that we want to share with you as part of this round of it happened in Florida, and all of these things are ripped out of the headlines of the day and could have happened anywhere all over the globe and you've got a spot the one that actually went down in the troubled state and consistent state I might add of. Florida, you can get in and be an official contestant. Cool beans waiting for you at eight four, four, four ww show and what he's got story number one he has ever drive on the highway and you see a car that has been basically abandoned not just somebody who had some sort of trouble I remember a couple of weeks ago driving to the radio station there was the same car on the side of the highway for weeks on end. I bring it out because the police in this particular area reports of an abandoned vehicle and the good news is they have found the owner of this vehicle. Did I mention that it's a tank and it belongs to the State's National Guard. Now, it's not exactly a tank This particular vehicle is one of those bridge laying tracked devices that the military has. Apparently the marketing say, Hey, state's national. Guard owns in and it's been on the side of the highway no driver. It's been there for a while they are working with the National Guard to try and figure out where the driver went why he abandoned the tank and what to do about it is it in Florida where somebody lost a tank parked on the side of the highway so here's something that I think many woody and wilcox listener could wrap their heads around maybe you hadn't thought about going back to school, but there's potentially a situation that might work out for you. There's a university that is offering grants to people to quote do nothing. Saying this do nothing do nothing specifically it's a small group they're looking for three people to watch them do nothing end quote see what happens and quote. Nothing means see what happens. They die of boredom I think to see what sort of physical or mental changes take place and. I don't know if this as covid nineteen for some reason. defined. Nothing. For How long I believe you're not supposed to think or move for a week. That's supposed to think. More. Right to let. So it's a little bit more difficult than you think I mean, it's literally doing nothing but things are going to get messy. It's great question. I don't know how they handle nature's business. That's. Fine, I mean, yes. Feels like a solid question so solid and liquid question. Actually, if you know what I'm saying when you say no movement, you literally mean. They are going to pay you. So this is one of those how much studies I'll reveal that on the reveal are they in Florida? Is My question for you what he's got the third and final we're not doctors here on the what you will not here is a doctor. Now I, bring it up because I'll read you the headline phony dentist accused of Kissing Bucks of woman with a toothache. That sounds right. I had to before and I I. Remember my dentist says a kid not using this particular technique. Why does so many people pose as dentists you did have a weird dentist woody I wouldn't have been surprised if that was one of the things that he did agreed wasn't he Dr GonNa hurt you or something his name was Dr Pain Right and he did put his knee in my. To extract tooth one time to get better leverage did he think your tooth was in your chest now? Okay forty seven year old dude in story number three accused of posing as a dentist treated a woman for a toothache gave her an injection in the old backside then kissed it to make it better. Kissed the BOO boo. Sixty, five dollars is what he was charging by the way. So you're saving some money did she get a tooth removed? I don't think so is in Florida Shanna, has got the first crack at this, which one of these stories went down to the plywood state. Shanna. Sorry number three, you story three. Just to do in south Florida Hollywood to be exact where he was posing as a dentist and treating people out of his house, and if you white, if you'd like to get the dough for the doing nothing at the university, you're GonNa have to leave the United States. The University of Fine Arts in Hamburg Germany is where they're offering the grants to do nothing, they'll pay you nineteen hundred dollars to answer your question. That's your grant for doing nothing active inactivity as what they're calling it. Applicants are free to choose their own form of idleness meaning an activity that you have to abstain from. I'll tweet this out because there's a lot and I'm not sure how much we want to get into if you're not following us out woody and Wilcox obviously today, it'll be the day star and the Nebraska State Patrol in North Platte Nebraska founded tank doesn't belong to the Nebraska National Guard.

Saudi Aramco debut fuels market excitment

"Saudi Aramco shares hit the public market and rally to their highest possible level. Live from London. This is marketplace morning report from the BBC World Service. I Victoria Craig Good Morning. Getting Saudi Arabia's state owned oil company to the public market was a long road. It's been nearly four years. Since the idea was floated and the listing stink process has been riddled with delays N. pared back expectations but when shares began trading in Riyadh today. They quickly rallied ten percent. The most they're allowed to in a single day valuing the company at just under two trillion dollars the BBC is Samir. Hashmi explains why this biggest ever. IPO is so important for Saudi Arabia. The crown prince it's Mohammed bin Salman wants to use the proceeds of this I appeal to fund his ambitious plan to diversify Saudi Arabia's economy because it heavily relies on oil and what Mohammed bin Salman wants to do is invest that money into modernizing. They called me. Are there any specific projects or sectors that Mohammed bin Salman wants to invest this money into. So they haven't specified clear plan but they have announced some huge projects for example. They're building a new city on the border of Saudi Arabia. Egypt Egypt and Jordan. Now the city will be a tourist destination and a business hub. That's how they describe it and interestingly there will be a different law to go on the city for example they will allow casinos which are strictly prohibited in Saudi Arabia. Still only one. And a half percent of the company's total value you is available on the public market after this listing. That's a very small sliver. Compared to companies like apple which has close to ninety percent of its value listed so could Aramco decide to list more of its shares at a later date. Are there plans for that. Yes there is school for them to list and have said that at some stage they WANNA listen. International stock exchanged like New York or London. But they haven't announced when but there is speculation that that could happen in the next year or so the BBC's Samir Hashemi. Thanks so much thank you. Let's do the numbers. The British pound is slightly lower after a fresh poll showed prime minister. Boris Johnson's lead has narrowed ahead of tomorrow's UK elections Sion's meanwhile the metal palladium is trading at a record high of above nineteen hundred dollars. An ounce that's after power cuts in South Africa forced mining companies to stop operations nations and tech shares are one percent Czars parent company reported a twelve percent annual jump in profit for the first nine months of the year for six days. Strikes across France have crippled public transport schools hospitals and postal services. Demonstrators are protesting against president. macron's planned pension reforms which will be formally unveiled by the country's prime minister. Eduard Felipe in just about an hour from Paris. The BBC is huge. Scofield reports so far the government has been vague about much the detail of its pension reform which allowed opponents to imagine the worst now if the prime minister can strike the right tone and include certain concessions. It's possible possible. Some of the opposition could begin to come over appear to obdurate though and France could be in for more days of transport strikes and street protests in the run-up to Christmas. The core we're of the reform is transforming France's complex multilevel pension system into a single regime in which everyone is treated equally that the government will not back down on home in Paris on the BBC issues field for marketplace to the northwest corner of Africa. Now where the country of Morocco hopes to become the gateway to the continent for foreign investors. Here's the BBC's Matthew Davis went to find out whether it can succeed on the face of it. The Moroccan economy seems robust it. Exports agricultural products products and textiles Tacoma. Reynaud has a huge blunt in the north and the country has the only high speed rail can Africa. An American government is busy sleep promoting itself as a gateway for investment into Africa. Nabila Free G.

It certainly convinced the likes of Luxembourg which announced it was opening a trade and investment office in Casablanca the EU countries. Deputy Prime Minister Etienne Schneider was on a visiting trade mission along with fifty companies. They have something something be lacking in Europe. And that's a well trained. Well Foam young people quite a lot of them. The logistic sector's quite an important sector in Luxembourg. And now we want to Louis discuss about using the port of tension as our entry port to the northern African continent. Step away from the tool glass buildings downtown downtown gas blanket. That's the financial and business center of Morocco. And it's a different story could could be muddled McCullough since two thousand seven. I have struggled to find work. The main reason is the structure of the job market. There are hardly any fixed term contracts. There are short term. Tim Contracts and you are not guaranteed to have a stable job so since two thousand seven I have not had any stable work for companies for the young generations nations. I have been in the field since two thousand seven Morocco like many African country suffers from high. Unemployment is especially prevalent in those under twenty twenty-five but Morocco's never had an Arab spring the violent upheavals which brought chaos and civil war to the likes of Tunisia.

Freelance Workers Should Make These Tax Moves Now

"Here's your money briefing from Monday. December ninth I'm Jr Whalen at the Wall Street Journal in New New York. Freelance workers can score some sizable tax deductions and avoid the wrath of uncle. Sam If they make some key moves. Before December Thirty First Wall Street Journal Journal Tax Reporter. Laura Saunders will be here a moment to explain I some money and market news. You should know people who's personal data was impacted by the two thousand seventeen equifax data. data-breach had two options to get reimbursed. A one hundred and twenty five dollar cash payout were ten years of free credit monitoring. Well those who thought the cash in hand. Dan was the better option. Maybe rethinking earlier this year regulators had warned they were unlikely to get anywhere near the one hundred twenty five dollars promised now it turns Out each of them was only in line for about fifteen cents. That's because as of December first Equifax had only put aside about thirty one million dollars for the payouts to four point. Five million people lawyer say the free credit monitoring is the better deal. That's worth up to nineteen hundred dollars. The following message comes from panerabread error bread. Ask yourself when was the last time you had a meal that was fresh and filling. PINERA's new warm grain bowls are full of flavorful ingredients like hardy keen wa Spicy Salsa Verde and creamy avocado full of flavors textures and colors full of good. So you'll you'll be full of good to try a new Baja or Mediterranean warm grain bowl warm grain bowls full of good now available for delivery Panera food as it should be for freelance workers. The reason explosion of online platforms such as Uber Task. Rabbit and upward can make it easy to find work but with all those jobs come specific Civic Tax Responsibilities Wall Street Journal tax reporter Laura Saunders is here with some tips for workers in the GIG economy to be ready when Uncle Sam comes looking for his share of the Pie. Hi So Laura. December thirty first is a hard deadline for freelancers to firm up their paperwork and potentially cut their taxes in April. But there's quite a bit of confusion. The results freelancers leaving deductions on the table. People are with freelance or gigging. Come very confused. And they're both risking thousands of dollars in iris penalties and and possibly leaving lots of Deductions or benefits on the table. People are just so confused about this and freelancers get better deduction when it comes to health. Insurance costs costs. Well that's exactly right. They get to put it. We call above the lawn on you know they get full deduction for their health insurance costs whereas if someone is an uh of employees they wouldn't get the same kind of break the growth of the self employment world can be kind of problematic for the IRS. Oh absolutely this is where about a quarter of the cheating goes on. It's probably a hundred twenty billion dollars a year because they're just not a lot of controls. There's not withholding like from your pay sometimes the employers don't send out the forms to the irs into people that work for them either legally or illegally. There's just a lot of stuff that goes on. So what is the rule governing when an employer is required to issue someone a year end ten ninety nine four one rule says the business has to send a ten ninety nine Minsk risk as a miscellaneous form to any body that performs more than six hundred dollars worth of services and okay. That's fine. Some people ignore that some firms ignore it and they shouldn't and but the really interesting thing is that there's also a form called a ten ninety nine K and a lot of the the online platforms use this form and they don't have to send the form until they're twenty thousand dollars of income and two hundred transactions so. Let me tell you what this means. Like if you're an AIRBNB host and you made a hundred thousand dollars renting your beach house in the summer if you only rented it five times there would be no paperwork for the IRS. And no paperwork for you really. Really Uncle Sam's letting all that money go. Well that's just how the law is written. This is legal. Congress kind of made a mistake when they were doing this and now they need to Redo it. But it's you know the the laws casts asked or set in cement and and so it's hard to change things that already exists but this can even be weirder. Say you might work for a ride share company and you get a seven hundred dollar bonus for referrals or something like that. Well you might get a team won ten ninety nine form that reports the seven hundred dollars to you into the irs for the year but you made eighteen thousand dollars giving people rides but you don't get a forum for that so the whole thing is taxable level. If you know just because you don't get a form doesn't mean it's not taxable okay so if the employer does not issue the proper forms within the bounds of the law and the employee he doesn't recognize the fact they haven't gotten the form who does the. Irs Go after well in theory both but a lot of the avoidance is legal by the the online sharing platforms so in that case they only could go after. The worker is sometimes hard to find those workers so a lot like salaried workers. The freelance workers really do need to keep keep very close track of their paperwork. And all the numbers yes no salaried workers. The company does that for you. You get a W. Two at the end of the year they withhold your wages. You know ninety nine on percent of that is collected but in this end of the of the self employed world only I think about fifty five percent of that income is reported. We talked about Health Insurance Insurance costs the freelancers get a more attractive deduction also contributing to a retirement plan can result in deductions yes absolutely all kinds of deductions turns. Either can be larger or better or exist at all. Now for instance. If you're a running coach self employed in your student goes to run in a marathon Arthurian in Europe you might have a deductible cost there For going with him to coach you know so that employees can do the same thing with retirement plans tax deductible. Retirement plans self-employed workers can often save a lot. More than than employed workers workers. If they have the income to do it they could put in up to maybe fifty thousand dollars a year so this is something to be aware of enough. There's a discrepancy or forms not sent out the IRS hammer can come down pretty hard it. The penalties are absolutely dreadful. It's just whether they'll find you or not. But they're getting better at looking. So if you're a freelancer and you have not received any mail or forms in the mail or by via email from your employer by. Let's say January thirty first. You should make phone call so perhaps but then you may find out that they weren't required required legally to do that so then you just have to keep good records for yourself all right. That's Wall Street Journal Journal reporter Laura Sanders here in our studio Laura. Thanks for coming on the show. Thanks for having me. And that's your money briefing. Im J._R.. whalen in New York for the Wall Street Journal.

The Indicator Plays 'Ms. Monopoly'

"N. P. R. Monopoly the classic game. It was originally invented by a woman named Lizzie Magee in the early nineteen hundreds and back then it was called the landlord's game it was supposed to teach people about the evils of land monopolies. Ironically though it ended up becoming a kind of icon micon of capitalism. That was not the lesson that I took away from monopoly evils of land monopoly that was my takeaway was bye. Bye Bye Bill Hotel. Yeah I think a lot of people definitely for me. It was like my first exposure to economic ideas like investing and money management property ownership. You know monopoly spot for monopoly. Yeah but then we saw this story about a new version of monopoly. That had just come out called MS monopoly and the whole idea of MS monopoly was it. It would address the particular issues that women face in the economy so things like the gender pay gap and it would celebrate female entrepreneurs by replacing all the properties like park replace or Baltic Avenue with products that had been invented by women and a lot of these issues are very close to our hearts here at the indicator so we ordered a copy of Ms Monopoly to see what it was all about about so it came in the mail here. It is And there's this kind of cute hip looking women on the box. It says she is. Mr Monopoly's niece had to be related to him. It also who says on the box without women. We wouldn't have wi fi or chocolate chip cookies. Apparently women invented both of those things so we had to play the game. We had to play a game so we we invited over one of our favorite. Economists Martha Kimball. She's on the show on jobs. Fridays very frequently to play along with this. This is indicated from planet money. I'm Cardiff Garcia. And I'm Stacey Vanek Smith Today on the show. We play monopoly with Martha Gumbo. We learned about some economic issues. Women face some of the things that women have invented and why I will never look at fire escapes or chocolate chip cookies. The same way again. This message comes from NPR MPR sponsor. You River cruises want to travel to popular spots in Europe without all the hassle immerse yourself and local culture take part in active excursions. Now now you can with you. River cruises learn more at you by Yuna World Dot com support also comes from wealth front the well front cash account offers one of the highest highest interest rates in the market at one point seven eight percent. AP Y that's nineteen times more interest than the national average according to FDIC DOT GOV so I we have to divide up the money. Apparently men and women get a little bit different money Cardiff.

I get three five hundred dollar bills Cardiff. You'll get to five hundred dollar bills. Okay I know thirty. Three percent pay gap right. But have you controlled for differences and occupation in an industry. That's a good point. Should we figure out what the HE's starting gender pay gap is share. Okay let's forget what the starting gender pay gap is. I have fifteen hundred dollars. We've nineteen hundred dollars pretty close to the actual the gender pay nineteen. Yeah that's because the actual gender pay gap is like twenty percent Martha as our guest. Please go first. Oh Hooray seven chance. All right let's see how this goes. Sometimes the only answer to a bad day is a bowl of cookie dough advanced advanced chocolate chip cookies. Know what I am having so many emotions really. Oh my God. I think we'll bore. I think this is like park place here. I'll have you read it. And you can decide if you want to buy the Property Ruth Wakefield in nineteen thirty invented chocolate chip cookies by accident when the chocolate she used in her chocolate. Cookies didn't melt enough today. The global cookie market is a multibillion dollar industry and and chocolate chip cookies are an icon but now we are to our four hundred dollar question. which is do you want to buy the chocolate chip cookie property which appears appears to be one of the more lucrative ones on the map well and given there is data that women don't quote Unquote Invest Enough in the stock market? which is a whole other topic of discussion right? I'm I'M GONNA try to go against that and invest in the chocolate chip cookies. Okay my turn Here we go five. So invention in fire escape Anna Connolly eighteen eighty seven before and economies fire escape bridge people had to parachute or or repel from burning buildings. There were parachutes before eighteen. Eighty seven. I don't think the people used to skate burning buildings. I think just being facetious. I think you're right. Are you GONNA buy Yemen.

When she couldn't afford a patent large to protect the slimming shaping footloose list pantyhose? She designed she hit the law. Books wrote her own patent and eventually received one.

Go yes so you get to collect two hundred and forty dollars poor card if only gets to collect two hundred oh how exciting breath on another chance boy. Daycare fees fifty dollars. No my God. It's how do you feel about that you know I'm torn because on the one hand. Childcare is an expense that women have to deal with and they can keep keep them out of the workforce. Yes on the other hand. That's making a lot of assumptions that all women have to pay childcare fees and that childcare fees don't impact men that's also true skills like a very one dimensional attitude towards childcare honestly and women. Yeah but anyway Cardiff go ahead. Yes Okay Rio big money. Ten Roll me and acupressure tool all right here you go. This is like in the Baltic Avenue Section. Right these are the properties.

Yeah right proof that even when women start out ahead we ended up behind Whatever you owe me one hundred twenty bucks who? I'm getting so upset. This game is just increasing the amount of emotional Labor that women have to. That's true. Oh yes that is true. Okay so I'm trying to figure out how we figure who wins so I think if we just add up the value of our properties. Yeah Yeah works. Yeah let's do that. Okay Pooja go. I I think it's going to be used Acey. Okay I had two thousand thousand two hundred and twenty dollars. I had two thousand eight hundred sixty. I had two thousand eight hundred Martha Okay so so takeaways. I don't know what do we think of this of the game. Yeah Yeah Yeah I think it sends the wrong message which is not that like we're on this together and we're trying to like fight for equality but they're like this is now an antagonistic antagonistic struggle. Between men and women. You would have won the game. If you've gotten the same amount of money when you Pasco. Yes I mean how do you feel about your win and you'll get a dirty about it on because it's not I mean maybe this is how like men should feel in the workplace. He's like I didn't earn it. And I kind of feel like Cardiff played the game better than I did. But yet because I started off with all this privilege I still ended up ahead. Oh yeah yeah well I guess that is the gender pay gap. Yeah I guess there's something there I hate this game. This episode of the indicator was produced produced by Lena Sons. Gerry are. Intern is not Louis.

The Morning Ritual with Garret Lewis-Garret Talks About Pima County Holding Innocent Man's Jeep Hostage

"Looking for a new career, but don't want to spend four years in college than checkout e CPI university through are year round accelerated programs. You can earn a bachelor's degree in just two point, five years an associates in one point five or earn your masters in as little as fifteen months whether it's technology healthcare business criminal justice order culinary arts are hands on programs can help you reach your professional goals. So what are you waiting for visit? Dot Edu to learn more. How strong. The most comfortable. Pillow. Yes. What's up? Morning Ritual Garrett Lewis. T. A. M seventy TUCSON's most. Stimulating talk I mean really is there's no arguing that. Three things I. Think you need to know brought to you by strong bill, plumbing, air, and solar. The old number one. Pima county finished the week with a five point one percent covert positivity rate last week six, point, three percent. Both will under seven in the right direction. Two straight weeks gotTA wait for the school benchmark, which is two weeks delayed basically won't be updated into Thursday and that'll be the August ninth data. To do that stuff. But how about that? Whole four point six, six percent positively Kovic patients now down to nine, hundred, sixty, nine. That's in the whole all hospitals it was thirty, five, hundred seventeen back into on. July. Thirteenth this is incredible stuff it's going. Now our Guy Alex Berenson is predicting herd immunity here in Arizona. He just tweeted that a couple minutes ago herd immunity. It's what he's predicting. Second thing that I think you need to know is that the Arizona. Education Association is demanding stuff because they're worried numbers getting back down the teachers are going to be told get back to school like more parents seemed about all Betcha more parents are pissed more parents have had enough and the numbers dropping down. So now all of a sudden they're saying that it's not safe. We need more money that the union head. Joe. Thomas we need more money in order to get back to classes I'd say. Schools have already been given three hundred, seventy, million dollars in this state three, hundred, seventy, million, they want more money. They want masks throughout the end of the year end of the school year. That's another one. They went all the new series right now. Oh. Don't count standardized testing. Don't let us have to teach in class for one hundred eighty days. Your time is coming on. This is ridiculous fund public schools. Third thing I think you need to know the CDC has come out update actually July thirty first Alex Berenson brought to my attention. It was an update on quarantine rules on no joke. It says it doesn't matter if you come in contact if you're wearing a mask and the person that you that it has covert whether asymmetric or symptomatic is wearing a mask. If you come into contact with them regardless of wearing a mask, you must be quarantined at that basically saying masks don't work. They actually have a note on the CDC website about this. You have to go into quarantine erase Spiv of whether the person with covid. Or, the contact was wearing a mask. And they are the research indicates mass may help those who are infected from spreading covid. But. There is less information regarding whether mass offer any protection for contact exposed to a symptomatic. Patient. So this whole garbage of don't wear it for you where it for me is a lie and I have cage along with a thirty second commercial that Pima County made spouting that line saying mass master the best way to save yourself get out of your three things I think you need to know. More insanity from Pima County because it's not just a health department that's corrupt. No? No. No, there's more. There's more. There's a crazy story Matt Miller is a senior attorney for the Goldwater Institute and he wrote on their their blog in defense of liberty dot blog. It's the goldwater ensues blog. There's a Tucson resident and Handyman Kevin McBride apparently his girlfriend took his jeep. He didn't know what's going on into a convenience store and got busted selling about twenty five bucks worth a we'd to an undercover cop. And she was driving his his jeep and he can't get it back and tell us about all. This is again these senior attorney for Goldwater Institute Matt Miller how you doing man. I'm doing good Gary How are you? Excellence so is that really what happened? So now this guy's girlfriend goes does this he has no idea girlfriends trying to do it. He's done nothing wrong and he can't get his jeep back from Pima County. Yeah. That's what happened So Kevin was at a job site his girlfriend stop by and said, Hey, you need anything said Yeah, you know. Me Some Soda. So she goes off takes his jeep without his knowledge, and apparently what she allegedly was doing was selling as you said, twenty five dollars worth of marijuana to an undercover police officer. So a while later, Kevin gets worried because she hasn't come back and so he bums arrived convenience store and when he gets there, his jeep is being loaded onto a flatbed wrecker. And he's given a number to call by at least offer saying call this number to find out more information and what happened was they seized his jeep using a system called civil asset forfeiture because his girlfriend was allegedly selling marijuana to the police officer. Wow. That's So they just took it. No matter what he couldn't even find out what was going on. He couldn't get his mind you can't take it. So he just lost his own personal property. And and I'm a according to what I you know and I want you to explain it. But from what I read would from would you wrote is that he can't even get this back and Talk about that, and then talk about this because this could happen to anybody right this this this whole situation about having your property taken from you. Right, it can happen to anybody like as I mentioned season a civil court system called civil asset forfeiture and so the idea originally was that to get it at, you know drug kingpins or Al Capone sometimes it's hard to prove that they themselves committed a crime beyond a reasonable doubt. But if we can target their property than we can hurt them, we can seize property as being used in the commission of a crime. it started out again. It's too hard at large-scale drug criminals and it is now every day. Amazon and across the country to target people like Kevin. Target. People. WHO Get pulled over by police officer too much money on them. They can't explain the money and so the money gets seized Kevin's case and we represent him. We're trying to get his jeep back. He he was given the number to call. He's been three weeks trying to get a hold of somebody. He finally got a hold of somebody explain what was going on. He sent a claim for the jeep saying look I'm totally innocent I didn't know is in it. Much less to sell marijuana. Please going to have my back and they wrote him back and said you can have your back if you pay US nineteen hundred dollars, that's our offer, take it or leave it. WHO's they? WHO's they? it is the Tucson counternarcotics alliance in the letter written by the on county attorney's office. And that is often what happens is you have police. Or. A police task. Force. It gets involved in these state operations and they're not really targeting somebody who's selling twenty five dollars worth of marijuana with their targeting vehicle according to Kevin's girlfriend the record was there within about ten minutes and the whole thing was a setup to take his jeep. He's in civil asset forfeiture. And then Kevin has to hire an attorney or in our case you ever been in for free by the Goldwater Institute. and Go to court and prove that he's innocent the government having to prove that he's guilty. and. This is crazy it. We're talking to Matt, Miller. Senior Attorney for the Goldwater Institute on. Seven ninety on your on your blog. The in defense of Liberty. Dot. Blog is a screen shot of the letter written by Deputy County Attorney here in Pima County Kevin. Crazy. And he wrote to Kevin McBride That I've reviewed your petition with the Seizing Agency and outright return of the vehicles inappropriate in this case. It's inappropriate to we we. We're not going to do it and yet says, you can pay nine thousand, nine hundred dollars for to be released one. Where do they come up with the nineteen hundred dollar Value Pima County deputies we? GonNa turn evolves. How do they come up with that random number nineteen hundred dollars It appears to be a random number. There's no explanation for it. In the letter at all they call it an offer mitigation as it hit done something wrong deserve to pay some money to make up against making for some time or some wrong that he committed. But they never did anything wrong either as a lifelong resident, he's got his nose clean for fifty six years I worked as a handyman and without gt's unable to work. and. They won't even do it in and if I remember didn't the charges against the girlfriend were they dropped anyway. They were dropped. Yeah I mean again, we're talking about twenty five dollars with marijuana They dropped those charges they released from jail but they still have the jeep we're working to get it back Hopefully, we'll get it for Kevin soon but the larger point as you said, this can happen to anybody I'm making happen during any traffic stop. On the can happen over petty crimes and the police in Arizona and around the country taking tens and hundreds of millions of dollars I'm using this system and most people. Suddenly. Wake up and in a nightmare you know they've never heard of civil asset forfeiture. They don't know what to do to get their property back. They can't afford to hire an attorney and so typically in these cases, you just see default judgment after default judgment. Where the property owner walks away because they're too confused and scared to do anything else. Yup and then the this county or the state will then sell it off right and they'll sell it on an auction whatever the property is. Yeah. That's right. I. Mean kind enough to make it his worried about fifteen thousand dollars. It's it's a nicely modified typical. Arizona. Red Rock desert rat crawling jeep and if if they don't get back and we're in Enron successful and getting it back, then they would sell it and they keep them so that money could use for police operations. So what can be done here? I mean you know we have a an alleged Republican governor who has done a garbage job at keeping people's rights and liberty safe. We have Republican legislature that's afraid to call the Republican governor This is not something new. Why is this even allowed in the state of Arizona? Well. They've been working legislative reform We've been working with legislators reformed. There was a package that went into effect in twenty seventeen, Mesa modest and good reforms. In, twenty twenty, they were actually TV legislation and that got Scott's that got put on the table because put off the table because of Covid and so we've we've we bought Kevin's cancer actively looking brother cases. Because apparently need to step in and declare this practice on constitutional. If you want to take somebody's property informants, you have to convict them of a crime and the property should have been directly involved in a crime that they themselves committed. Can't just take somebody like Kevin G can't just take somebody's property and then drop the charges and make them. You know hire an attorney to get it back. Criminal forfeiture is fine. Civil forfeiture it needs to be abolished. Can Doug Ducey do anything by himself to stop something like this right now from happening. Question you know I I don't know that he could although you know he's actually plenty of executive orders lately I don't know that this is something that could be legislated by executive order. I, think we really need to legislate to step in and do something, and hopefully they'll do that next session we're working on a package of reform right now. Gosh. This is this is insane. This is this is crazy and I'm glad you're. You guys sent this out I. wanted you to talk about it because I mean, this is this is just nuts and this is not something that you said this is rare like this happens. Is it somewhat often how often does something like this everyday? Everyday everyday there are thousands of civil case in Arizona you can look them up but no have weird titles like state of Arizona versus an thousand dollars or state of Arizona versus one wrangler. Legal fiction because actually bring the case against the property alleging that it was used during the commission of a crime which shows you just how strange civil rights to begin with. And that's going to happen to somebody. They can't wrap their mind around it. You know they have no idea where to go the Byzantine Process and so nine times out of ten they just wanted walking away and the state gives to keep the money the. So. What can people doing Matt Miller is on. Seventy senior attorney Goldwater Institute. What can people do I mean people have been calling their legislators and emailing them like crazy. Hit him on social media because everything see is doing right now with schools and businesses and bars, and you name it and to no avail even worth just. Bombarding the state senators and state reps with with more emails about this. It is worth it. It is worth it. I do think some of them are listening I do think there is support for civil forfeiture reform we saw in twenty seventeen. Twenty twenty got really weird. Really Fast twenty, twenty one should be the year when Arizona reforms, we need to keep the pressure on state legislators to enact this package that almost all arizonans want. Man This is this. This is crazy. And I feel terrible. Tell me I, know it's a site. He dumped his girlfriend for this right now. Hope again, be dumped his girlfriend. Let's business, screen him and his girlfriend. Find. Personal. Business. but but he certainly hope. Yeah no no kidding Oh man we'll talk Matt Miller Goldwater. Institute. If people are going through this, also they just contact the Goldwater Institute, and and hopefully you guys can build even more cases to to prove that this should be gone should be abolished. You're absolutely they should contact us are they can go to goldwater institute dot Org for more information and yet but please contact us bring these to our attention. We're working to keep the pressure on but working to help innocent property owners We'd like to hear from anybody advocate for as a problem. Matt Miller. Thank you very much. I'll put this story on my facebook page twitter and parlor as well. Thank you for the time man good work, and if anything new happens, please let us know. Okay. Thank. Thank. You gotTa Take Care.

Project Dojo, Hardware 4.0, TSLA Stock, Autopilot Rewrite (08.18.20)

"Everybody Ravin our here to be back after a short vacation there as predicted a lot went down with Tesla's stock is up about fourteen percent since I left pretty clearly all being driven by the opening up of pre orders for radio flyers, model wife or kids. Now, this isn't battery powered like the Model S. for kids. It is just a ride on vehicle, but Radio Flier describes it as quote at the Superior Tussle. Experience in ride on car and quote. But anyway, in all seriousness I think the stock is up for a combination of many many different reasons. I saw yesterday that the eight or nine percent increase was being largely attributed to the increased price target from wedbush analyst knives had upped his price target from eighteen hundred dollars per share to nineteen hundred dollars per share personally I don't think that was a big factor in the. Increase that we have seen tesla has largely been rangebound since the q earnings report and I think now that we have the stock split news that has helped free it from that range and who knows what other impacts are Ben over the last few weeks from the options market short interest, which will get another update on. Tuesday of next week may be more or continued running up possible S. and P. Five hundred inclusion. Or institutional investments we've heard recently that Softbank has taken a stake in Tesla. Remember they had been one of the companies that had been potentially involved in possibly taking a private a couple years back. But anyway, a mixture of those sorts of things is much more likely in my opinion to be contributing to the stock price increase that we have seen. Then an updated note from analyst that has already been relatively bullish on Tusla. Far as the actual analyst updates go I would say that the upgrades from Morgan Stanley and Bank of America last week on Friday would have had bigger impacts on the stock. Those were actually ratings upgrades. So the equivalent from a cell to a neutral rating and I recently learned that in some cases, financial advisers at banks like that cannot actually recommend a stock that that bank has. A cell rating on obviously they could still buy that stock at their clients request but they can't actually recommend it if the bank has that sal rating. So now with these upgrades to neutral, these financial advisors can actually recommend the stock to their customers. Bank of America, for example, which operates the Bank of America and Merrill Lynch Brands has more than twenty, five, thousand financial advisers and you. Can Bet that some of them were on the phone on Monday, talking to their clients trying to get them to buy Tesla Stock I know that for sure for Bank of America, because one of our listeners is financial adviser for them, and that's how I'm aware of this information. Anyway there's always things like that. That may not be apparent at the surface level that are going to drive. The stock, they're not gonNA. Find an headlines are getting into more tell news from the last few days. Then we're going to stay pretty high level here I am still catching up, but we did have an E. tweet storm on Friday, of course, talking a lot about Tesla's technology with project Dojo and the pilot and a couple other interesting topics as well. So we'll start off with Dojo. Kicked this off with another recruiting message saying quote Tesla is developing a neural network training computer Koldo to process truly vast amounts of video data. It's a beast. Please consider joining our AI or computer slash chip teams if the sounds interesting and quote if you need a refresher on what project Oh joe is for Tesla. vivant twitter put well by saying quote Joe is used to increase training speed and enable self supervised learning. This is at server side. So no upgrades required on individual cars if I recall correctly and quote. Confirmed that saying exactly and also adding some technical details by describing though Joe as quote, a truly useful EXA FLOP AT DEFACTO FP thirty, two and quote. So if you're unfamiliar, F P thirty two just represents the number of significant digits being used by a computer and it's calculating process a computer uses a combination of significant digits and exponents to calculate things so F P thirty two just. means that the numbers being used in those calculations are stored in thirty, two bits of memory versus something like F. B., sixteen. Which would only use sixteen bits of memory to store the numbers used its calculations meaning can only use about half the number of significant digits leading to less precise calculations. So F thirty two, you would give you more precision but F. B. Sixteen would theoretically handle the. Faster because it is using less memory for that reason, a lot of neural network programming is done on F P, sixteen but with Tusla, it looks like they're opting here for F. B. Thirty two with DOJ joe for that increased precision. But then Ilan does also tell us about the speed of calculation. When he says exit flop flop refers to floating point operations per second and then Exa is just prefix. Similar to Giga, which we'd always talk about with gigawatt hours Giga represents one billion. So one GIGAWATT hour would be one billion watt hours similarly with flops. One GIGAFLOP would be one billion operations per second. An extra flap is that times billion. So one exit flop is a billion billions of operations per second for comparison sake top five, hundred, dot org has put together for the last twenty five plus years a. List of the top five, hundred supercomputers in the world right now, the highest performance computer is the you've got your system out of Japan got developed by for Jitsu and Reagan and invent testing. It turned into performance results of four hundred, fifteen pedal flops, which would equate two point four, one, five exit flops again alone sang that Dojo will be a truly useful exit flop meaning it could perform better and. Benchmark testing or in some specific cases. But for Tesla's use case, it will perform around that Exa flop level making it one of the fastest supercomputers in the world probably not the fastest will be advancement between now and when Tesla's operational and I've also been unsuccessful in figuring out the details of exactly how these benchmark tests for supercomputers are performed there compared on a test called HP L. or high-performance. Linpack. But. How those test results factor in the added precision from sixty four bit versus thirty, two bit for sixteen bit for example. So I'm not sure how Tesla's exa flop would compare to the test results here. If anybody has more experience on that, please let me know in the comments, but the top five hundred list does add to these deaths results again, a four and fifteen pedal flops for the top computer by saying quote in single or further reduce precision, which are often used in machine learning applications Fukoku P.. Performance is over on a pedestal APPs or one x flop and quote. So single precision which is mentioned in there generally refers to FBI thirty two. So it sounds like Tesla would be targeting the performance roughly of the current best supercomputer in the world. But of course, tussle will be optimizing that performance for exactly what they needed to do I, think this is an aspect of Tesla that has been underappreciated and even with this tweet from Milan will likely continue to be unrecognized and underappreciated is worth remembering when. People try to argue that Tesla is not a technology company. I think you can point them right back to that tweet at the exact timeline said on twitter that dough Joe is still being built that it's maybe a year or so away from version one point. Oh, moving on from Dojo Ilan also had a few tweets on autopilot every day astronaut Tim dot asked Ilan win the next major autopilot release would be and you on said quote the improvement will come as a quantum leap because it's a fundamental. Architectural rewrite not an incremental tweak is the bleeding edge alpha built in my car personally almost at zero interventions between work and home limited public release in six to ten weeks and quote we've heard Ilan Express those feelings a few times now. But that timeline is new six weeks from that tweet would be Friday September. Twenty fifth ten weeks would be October twenty third. It is worth noting that timelines similar to this even related to autopilot features like some in or reverse summon in some cases even this close in. Left by months or even a year more. So in general while I believe Ilan, ansel have gotten better at communicating these timelines specifically with autopilot that be taken with a large degree of error. Yulon also mentions limited public release here that could mean limited to a region like the US, for example, or it limited to a tighter group of people maybe the early access Beta program either way exciting to see the confidence and hopefully ever more closely approaching released a couple more interesting tweets. Here to go through. Ilan replied to a Tesla Roddy article mentioning the low stock on power walls we talked about that last week alonside quote Tesla team is working hard on increasing power while production and quote not much to add to that but it does seem to confirm the production constraint personally for Battery Day. I'm super excited to hear more about how that's going to impact the energy business. Understandably, a lot of the focus has been around how it's going to impact vehicles but. Just as impactful for energy next Ilan gave an update on two factor authentication for accessing vehicles. He said, sorry has been embarrassingly late, but it is going through a final validation currently, and then a project that a lot of people are really excited about and have speculated about is an electric vertical takeoff and landing supersonic plane from Tesla somebody asked about that and you. said quote I want to do an electric veto supersonic so bad. But my brain will overload and quote Yulon has made some more comments in the past though I believe at times he has mentioned four hundred hours per kilogram needed in terms of energy density to make a electric visa accents believed the model three batteries are at around two hundred, fifty watt hours per kilogram. Batteries available that are more energy dense. So this is I believe another example of Tusla not being limited for ideas really just being limited in terms of the bandwidth for implementing those ideas. This idea is definitely not going away. So hopefully, at some point, it'll make sense for Tesla to allocate the resources for it. All right. Last thing I want to talk about today is a report from a wreck on article from the China Times about Tesla chip production for their full self-driving hardware, I don't WanNa go into as much detail as we did on DOJ Dojo on this one but the China Times says that according to some Industry News Tesla's. Working with TSMC a Taiwanese senator manufacturing company to support advanced driving assistance systems leading to speculation from electric that this would be for a hardware four point out chip from Tusla though the China Times article does also mention in car entertainment as something that may be powered by this chip, which would be different than how hardware three operates but regardless, really all I wanted to say about this topic if it is for hardware for this should not be surprising at all. I've seen some people on twitter and elsewhere questioning whites tusla would need a hardware four point. Now, if hardware three is supposed to be capable full self driving but a hardware four. Has always been in the works Yvonne mentioned it specifically at Autonomy Day last year when they really unveiled hardware three, he said at the time quote it's may be worth pointing out that we finished. This design may be one and a half two years ago and began the design of the next generation. We're not talking about the next generation today, but we're about halfway through it all the things that are obvious for the next generation chip were doing and quote a few of those obvious things would be increasing. The calculations per second may be lowering the costs and our guess that lowering the power requirements for chipped operate would be a big. Priority as well. So the development of this chip doesn't necessarily mean that Tesla can't get full self-driving working on hardware three just that it might be incrementally better. Even if that's just from a cost for performance perspective on next generation technology, it would be pretty silly to assume that Tesla isn't going to continue to iterating advance and optimize their hardware and them that if this indicates that they're wrapped up with the design for hardware four, they've probably already started designing hardware five anyway, whatever this ship ends up being the timelines suggested would be for production test run in Q. Four of twenty twenty, and then mass production Q. Four of twenty, twenty one. One final note for today, just a quick congratulations for spacex on the successful completion of their one hundred launch today successfully deploying fifty eight new starling satellites and capping Matt off with a catch of faring half right into the net of spaceship mystery. This launch was also a record for orbital spaceflight reusability. It was the sixth launch and also six landing for this particular Falcon nine booster both records. So congratulations on that and that will wrap it up for today as always. Thank you for listening. Happy to be back on the PODCAST. Don't forget to subscribe and sign up for notifications. Make sure on twitter at the PODCAST and I'll see tomorrow for the August nineteen episode of density thank you.

Maurer/Cramer: Wedbush $3,500 Bull Case, Growth in China, Tesla Battery Day (08.24.20)

"Power here. Today we have Jim Cramer joining again to discuss the latest on. Tesla. This morning we had a new note out from Dan is of Wedbush, increasing his book as price target to thirty five hundred dollars per share keeping his neutral rating and keeping his base case press targeted at nineteen hundred dollars per share. So just wanted to discuss a little bit of that today with Jim thanks for joining Jim. Yet first of all. I have to tell you we did a piece last week. And I've been doing twitter since. two, thousand, nine. I've been coming on many different stocks since nineteen eighty-four writing. This was the greatest outpouring. I've ever seen I. Think a lot of it was because it was not a hit and run. It was thought out it's because you are I think the best expert I've heard on this, which is why when I saw the web was saying China's growth trajectory robust and battery gay key equals thirty, five, hundred new book as and then I saw the stock was down I. said you know for those who really loved Tesla? It's better to buy someone is down the one is flying. So I wanted to ask you first what's the credibility of Daniel is giving the there's bookcase in these neutral and second does he does he have any sort of insight that others don't. Yes I think on Wedbush. Dan. Is is definitely a very respected analyst among Wall Street I think there's a website that ranks analysts based on their calls out there tip ranks, and he's in the top. You know couple percent of analysts on that on that website us we definitely does a good job. He's covered Tesla well. In terms of his note, this morning and specifically the comments on China that's definitely accurate. China is hitting a production run rate of one hundred and fifty thousand units per year right now, and that's actually a bit understated over the last couple of months Tesla has registered about twenty, six thousand vehicles in China. So if we extrapolate that to an annual run rate that's about. One hundred sixty thousand. So we've been over the last couple of months. Tesla's already been there and in their queue to letter, they said that they're going to hit two hundred thousand Russian rate in China Shanghai in in the middle of twenty twenty. So that's where we are right now in already had about one hundred and fifty thousand from Dan's note this morning. So I think that's next on. Tat Million Mile Battery Announcement Drum Roll again I learned from you last week that perhaps we should be thinking about is the capacity to build, but this is again what the thing that I was asking about, which is the this is the so-called million mile A. Battery of which some lag said to me this weekend who loved our podcast don't you realize that there's a million mile battery normal ever get a new tesla. So the idea that you buy GM corn four years later you a new GM car is out he is maintained he will make it. So as carbon ever traded in. And I thought that you could address both the battery issue and that complaint. Yes we'll start with the million mile battery. I think we touched on it last week but essentially, a million mile battery just means for the car it can you know instead of going one hundred and fifty, thousand, two, hundred, thousand miles it can last me miles. So you're going to get five times the amount of utilization for normal use case that would imply that the vehicle could last forty fifty years. Obviously people aren't gonNA keep their vehicle that long. But Tesla's really pushing for this because they had vision an electric rebel taxi type of Environments Day where the. Vehicles is higher and maybe they're traveling fifty thousand miles a year or one hundred, thousand miles a year instead of the usual ten to fifteen thousand. So that's really why tussles pushing for the longevity in terms of the battery life, and as we talked about last week, this is something that's already available in battery technology that's about thirty, five, hundred cycles. Okay three hundred miles per cycle and already has that technology in their power wall energy products today. So it's nothing new. It's really just about finding the balance between that energy density, all the competing priorities that go into battery technology and I think tussle have some exciting updates for us on that front on battery during battery. Day. And as we talked about last week to the production roadmap for them to scale eventually to twenty million vehicles per year. And then on the second point on. Not Having to replace your test every four years I think that's an interesting consideration and something we also talked about last week is that. Doesn't care about stuff like that. They're really just focused on providing as much value. They can't as like an to the customer and they believe that that is the path to success rather than. Building in margin from service or building and margin from vehicle turnover year to year and Tesla. Right now is a position where they can. You know they don't have to plan for things like that because they're. So there's market share. So small, there's so much market yet for them to to grab that they don't need to worry so much about making sure their customers are coming back every four years it's just not important to their business yet. It's very interesting that chapels percents. That's what apple does when you ask them. About going and what's the next thing? What's? The next thing is when we have a great. something added a watch is something for to listen. We will put it out, but we won't put it out beforehand and stopped trying to bother us about what we're GonNa do it because we're here's what we're going to do it when we think that people are going to love it and I think that one of the great reasons why Tesla is up is Tesla, shares, apples view, which is what we'll put it out when it's great. And that's what converted to test. There's a guy on twitter day says, well, you've always hated Tesla I've had I hated Tesla except for the last eighteen hundred points. Now let me ask you this when when we look at a this is a very complex question that I got when I was on the beach so to speak. I was saying what? This company could be justified as this valuation if it continues to introduce new technologies and if it conceivably takes over gigantic share I, love what you just said which is it's really very small right now. There's a lot to grow, but then the comeback was Jim pleased I mean it can't get up to where forges in terms of the number of cars and I said. It will get up to where it has to go. The is just trying to meet the demand. And my wrong. I completely agree with that train of thought I think. There's no reason to assume that Tesla can't get to that market share without providing sort of backing analysis to it. I think Tesla shown in the markets that they've played with the model three, the model as the Model X., they've been able to be the market share leader and Tesla's goes to continue to make the cars more affordable and enter higher volumes agreements. So you know based on the track record, we have of Tesla entering a new market and dominating it. I don't see any reason for that to necessarily change. As desolate continues to make their vehicles more affordable and continue to provide that amazing value proposition that we talked about. A. You have a special relationship with a company. I heard because you're on the conference call. Correct. A sort of so tesla does something a little bit unique. They actually have a system in place with a third party that allows them to you allows retail investors to mick and vote on questions for their earnings call and because of the fog that I have in the retail. Tesla Investment Community Fortunately, I'm in a position where a lot of my questions end up being asked. So yeah last last quarter I got three three questions in on Tesla's earnings call which is. Really Cool Tesla to offer that and kind of gives a voice to you the retail investor. Well I'm glad that he does it and you did it because without that. We just Kennedy at the same questions over and over again to basically made it. So that must got frustrated because. When you think about it obviously stocks the two thousand name when they were two hundred. You got a lot of complaints now I, I listened to complaints to I heard them. But when I heard, you come one, you commonsense questions and. which leads me to a a big question. Will you be allowed to go to battery? Tesla, actually just provide an update on this last week, they're doing a random drawing of shareholders to see who can go because The capacity is going to be so limited just because of the restrictions still around Corona virus and large group events. So they're just doing a completely random drawing of anyone that is a shareholder that's amidst into the drawing and it'll be pretty limited. Best. So I think you know my odds are are pretty low I'll definitely definitely make an effort. But we'll just have to see. Oh my God. That's so cool. So there really is a chance. So lucky lottery winner can get to see this thing. Yeah there'll be a few at least. Let me just circle back one more time to China. I'm reading the China this weekend Shanghai Wide Open for business Beijing Wuhan Area Wide Open. Up which leads me to believe that they can have whatever tesla makes they can sell. So that leads to be the next thing which is at what point does he expand capacity? Yeah. That's a great point that I wanted to also address. So I think one of the most exciting things about gigafactory Shanghai is the implication for the rest of business outside of China they went from breaking ground in Shanghai to actually producing vehicles in just ten months, and now we're about eight months passed aggregate breaking ground point and as we talked about their approaching production rate of two hundred, thousand vehicles per year. So that speed of production getting to production and ramping up production is pretty unprecedented to my knowledge. I don't have another instance of anything like. That ever happening before and what that shows is how quickly Tesla can expand. So right now they have gigafactory Berlin in construction, ABC gigafactory Texas. In Construction Berlin broke ground about three months ago Texas broke ground earlier this month. So if we fast forward ten months and Tesla can even achieve the same time line that they achieved in Shanghai on those two factories, we could be looking at Tesla's production capacity next year towards the end of next year already being at about one point three million vehicles in terms of the run rate at the end of the year. and. If we go back to the Dan note I, think you know analysts are in general pretty conservative on tussles growth rate Dan is, for example, in his base case nine, hundred, hundred dollars price target. He is forecasting Tesla's deliveries in twenty twenty five to be one point, three, million vehicles and Tesla has the potential to be at that capacity at the twenty twenty one. So I think gigafactory Shanghai shows what Tesla can achieve in such time and that's going to be shown again with gigafactory Belinda gets sexist over the next twelve months. We'll look you've answered all the things that I'm. Interested in an anxious to get this out off because you're following is immense. I want the people who follow me on the street. To know about your stuff because it's the first time I've ever had the context I don't know Dan is I only know people who think that the stock is. Wherever. Evade except for the people who introduced me to the car and I think it's an interesting dichotomy that the people who on Wall Street who don't drive Tesla's think it's over died and the people who drive Tesla. You know very smart people think hey, wait a second just let it run so anyway rob I thank you for letting me be on your show Yeah thanks Jim I really appreciate the time. It's always fun discussions. We should definitely get one of those bearish people on some time. Have a have a debate. That's a great idea. Thank you. Thank you.

FULFILLMENT MATTERS to Bobby Umar

"Word matters is my new series in it. A chat with people that i admire. I asked him to identify one word that matters most of them so simple. Ask not an easy answer. As on average we know forty thousand words then asked my guest. Why how's that word. Influence them inspired. Help them make choices and a focus focusing weather boy today chatted matters i chat with self made globally clan headache speaker bestselling author attributed huffington post inc magazine as declared him. One of the top under is a speakers in the world. Lamar welcome to be here bobby. Let's begin with the essence bypass let word matters most to you. and why. so the word i've chosen fulfillment. And the reason i chose fulfillment. Because i've learned over the years not connor in as a parent that a lotta people focus on finding happiness joy which i really really good things. But the truth is fulfillment it embodies everything from joy in pain in the entire diverse range of motions. You that you go through winning off for your parents. In partly attached to purpose in focus and impact and so in one of the ways that describes as a dat. You know when my daughter was crying baby and i'm holding her hands milanese tired. I'm not gonna asleep my bats hurting. But i'm still enjoying myself because i've been fulfilled. I'm feeling on purpose into that fuels me so for rape abilities. Everything same with my entrepreneurship Right does the pain. There's a stress is on the insert. The aspects is the overwhelming information in tasks to do yet. I'm fulfill because i'm on purpose. I'm on task for me. Fulfillment is everything that we should be. Striving for bobby carpet in exceptional path. That so much to share in terms of personal branding and networking. We'll get to that before we go there. I wanna go back in time. Tell me a little bit about where you grew up. I grew up in new brunswick on the east coast My family moved here about three months for us. Born and so i was kinda. I wore my generation in canada and grouplet small town saint john brunswick the just outside of that panic kate who played on the street all day until dark. Yeah it was because also announced was a victim minority but You know it didn't really normally cared very much. Because there is theoretically so few of us ten was really much difference but it evincing to grow up there because a health totally westernized compared to my parents who often wonder. Why are you so different up here in canada daddy. This kinda was but talk a little bit about those dynamics. I mean what lessons to you. Learn from your parents. I mean they're bringing a lot of their values and what they believed a different part of the world and bring it into canada. What life lessons they give you an which ones you still carry with you today. Why i think the big ones are the work ethic. Dad was our course he worked all the time day a day in day out but he also bound by spare time with their family all the time. So the work ethic them arrival memo. Dad was huge. Take that with me today. Their devotion to family not just the the regular family family gatherings they were they were the type of hall for advice. They were kind of the bedrock of the community. So i would. I think of family thing to work when i think of community. That's exactly what take my pass today. So i looked at your education and your career path The polite way to say it would be a collective engineering brand management performing arts and teaching and in an interview you described that even with all of that variety even touching so many different areas. He still felt lost Why was that. Yeah you know. I think part of it with the time to understand what drove me. What value are and kind of went with what other people were saying. So for example.
