"Okay, so first of all you're wrong, it is being taught in elementary school. So it'll be an example. Not only is it being taught, it's being enforced. So in Denver, there is a playground where they say white families not allowed. Would you support that? That seems like a ridiculous edge case. So I'll give you another example. Actually, in the national education association's training manual, which is the largest teacher union in the country, they had a seminar on how to teach critical race theory to kids. That sounds like it's in our schools, doesn't it? What that is, is it's literally just common sense. It's saying that this is real history. This is what has happened in the past. Right, so what's that matters? Okay, got it. So would you say that black only dormitories is wrong? It certainly creates a sense of community. I don't see any problem with that. We have sororities. We have male only dorms. Right. So racial differences are irrelevant and immaterial, chromosomal differences actually do matter, but let me ask you a question, are there differences between races? No, not biologically. Then why would we have different dormitories for races? Culture. Segregation is what you're arguing for, my friend. No, sir. How is it not segregation to have blacks in their own dorm? You've just pigeonholed me, essentially. You've essentially just like, you've distracted from my original argument. No, no. You did that to yourself. Let's reemphasize. So ibram X kendi argues, who is one of the leading thinkers of critical theory, race theory, discrimination today to atone for discrimination of yesterday. We have black only graduation ceremonies at Columbia University, black only dormitories across the country, for example, at western Washington University. Can you join me today and saying, black only dormitories are evil, wrong, and it's segregation. You still have an answer to my question about why does this history simultaneously mean nothing? Well, I'm happy to answer that. But the fact you're dodging segregation in America, why is that? I'm arguing against segregation. So you're against black only dormitories. Yes. Well, you said it was a force of community. And then for your not for critical race theory. Option. We have choice. Oh, so you could choose to segregate, that's a pigeon hole. What do you think of white only dormitories? What? Would you support white only dormitories? Everybody has a choice. So I think white only and black only anything is evil and wrong. That's why I hate critical theory and critical race theory because when it's in practice, when it's put in practice, you start to discriminate people based on race. So we're now south of the mason Dixon line in North Carolina. We did a lot of work to get rid of segregation in this country. Why are you trying to bring it back? What work? The Civil Rights Act of 1964. In this state, yeah, actually in this state. Are there black only bathrooms out there? I'm unaware of or white only bathrooms? Nah. Right. A lot of work was done in the state. Fuck you, your face is small. Well, thanks for being here. They always go to insults when they lose the argument. God bless you, my friend. All right, next one..

"AP sports I'm Tom Miriam, World Cup soccer, the U.S. held England to a scoreless draw in their second match of the opening round.

Packed Black Friday sports schedule
"AP sports I'm Tom Miriam. On Black Friday, the NBA and NHL were as busy as the shopping malls. 14 NBA games and 13 on the ice were played the day after both leagues were off for Thanksgiving. The Celtics added to their league leading record by beating searching Sacramento as Jason Tatum scored 30 with help from the Boston bench. I think when we might have been down for the end of the half of ten, he knows because of those guys came in and just changed the momentum. The bucks kept pace by beating the Cavaliers thanks largely to a 35, ten third quarter in which Bobby port has played a key role. Felt good for us overall as a basketball team, because it felt like we was playing books, basketball, for a chance. Victories also for the Lakers heat suns, warriors, nuggets, grizzly sixers pacers, rockets, thunder hornets, and the trailblazers in overtime over the Knicks. NHL, the bruins became the first team to win its first 12 home games in the season, as they beat the hurricanes three to two in overtime on David pasternak's gold. Big win for us, obviously, and coming from behind, you know, after Thanksgiving, the game is never easy, so it's good with. The devil's after having their 13 game win streak snap bounced back with a three one win in Buffalo. Other winners, the capitals penguins islanders red wings, Maple Leafs Canadians kraken jets, senators kings and lightning, with Braden points scoring too early goals. I think both teams were into it right away. It was nice to get a couple goals for us early. Pretty good jump on the game. I thought it was a fun game. World Cup soccer, the United States finished in a scoreless tie with England as coach Greg berhalter's young team had the better scoring chances. Overall, pleased with the performance of the group, most importantly, the belief of the group, because that never wavered. The U.S. now must be to ran on Tuesday to advance to the knockout round. Plenty of college action on Black Friday, football winners included four ranked teams tulane, Florida state UCLA and Texas, and basketball top ranked North Carolina lost a wire with state.

Mexico wants American extradited on charges in tourist death
"Prosecutors in Mexico are pushing for the extradition of an American woman suspected in the death of one of her traveling companions. Mexican prosecutors have not named the woman they filed charges against, but a video that has been widely circulating on social media shows Robinson of Charlotte, North Carolina, being beaten by another woman, a man with an American accent can be heard asking Robinson, can you at least fight back Robinson says no. The group Robinson was traveling with left Mexico after she was found dead October 29th in a villa they had been renting, and autopsy revealed that Robinson died of a severe spinal cord or neck injury. Prosecutors in the state of Baja, California Sur, say they've approached Mexican federal prosecutors and diplomats to try to get the woman extradited to face charges in Mexico and a warrant has been issued for her arrest.

Bills, Vikings and Cowboys score Thanksgiving wins.
"AP sports, I'm Mike Reeves, it was a busy Thanksgiving Day in the NFL with three games on the schedule, the bills were in Detroit to meet the Lions, correspondent Denny cap, was there and has this report. Tyler bass boots a 45 yard field goal with two seconds left as the bills hang on to beat the Lions 28 25 on Thanksgiving Day, passes heroics from 8 necessary after he missed an extra point late in the fourth quarter, which allowed Lions kicker Michael batchley to sign the game on a 51 yarder with 23 seconds left. Sometimes you do everything that you write and sometimes you just get unlucky. We got unlucky, but we have a great group of guys that support me and have my back and I was able to reset and focus on the next big. Josh Allen put bounced into position to win the game, orchestrating a 48 yard drive spurred by a 36 yard pass the Stefan Diggs. Bob Stephens was on hand to watch the cowboys host the Giants. The Dallas Cowboys rallied to defeat the New York Giants 28 20 on Thanksgiving, overcoming a 13 7 deficit with 21 unanswered points in the second half. Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy says the cowboys time of possession keyed the win. Excellent division win game we had to have and I love the fire team and really what tried to break their method. And one thing I'm talking about is controlling the ball was a big focus for us today. That Prescott threw for 261 yards and two touchdowns the Dalton Schultz, CD lamb caught 6 for one O 6, while Daniel Jones threw for two 28 in a touchdown for the Giants. In Minnesota Kirk Cousins finds Adam Thielen in the end zone with 9 34 left to give the Vikings a 33 26 win over the Patriots, it was cousins third scoring strike of the game, just a phenomenal catch by him. I thought that the way he's able to catch that football, keep his feet in bounds. It just says a lot about his ability. One of the things he does really well is his body control and he's just overall athleticism and he showed it there. A great play by him. In college football, Mississippi state gets passed almost 24 22 in college troops in top 5 action number one North Carolina and number three Kansas are winners. I'm Mike Reeves, AP sports.

Former Rep. Mark Walker Talks North Carolina Politics
"Have a sort of a pet thief. And that is everybody sort of lives and dies on the federal races and the presidential rights of the Senate at the house. And you and I are part of that. But the reality is governing this closest to the people is actually the governing that affects the people the most. And that would be things that you just got through working a lot of Supreme Court Justices, circuit appeals justice. And county commissioner, city councils. Tell us a little about what you did after the Senate race in North Carolina and had some really good results at. Yeah, you know, in North Carolina, for the last several years, we've had a democratic led North Carolina Supreme Court. They've thrown out legislative that was passed by the state House, things like voter ID, last year they rewrote the congressional lines, had two guys for Michigan come in and actually draw the maps overriding their own state's constitution. Other things in the past and what has happened. People like Eric holder and others have come in and sued her legislation because they knew the North Carolina Supreme Court would go along with it. Well, thank God we were able to flip that from four three Democrat to 5 two Republican as well as some wins on the Court of Appeals as a backdrop. The reason why this impacts all the way down the local person is the people that they're voting for state House to go and represent the past legislation now it is protected. So whether it's school board, whether it's county commission or whether it's state House, whether it's your north judges or Georgia judges or anybody else. Virginia judges you name it. That's why this is so important that people engage at their local level.
Former North Carolina Congressman Mark Walker Talks Midterm Results
"Let's get started. Let's just overall, you know, I just made that it reminds me, I think you've watched this show before. It was an old show from the early I can't believe I'm saying it's an old show. I mean, talking about made me feel bad. West wing from the early 2000s, you know, there was this episode called the midterms, the kids you not, in which they're sitting at the end of the show, they're all sitting around talking and saying we spent $400 million, $500 million was spent to end up in the exact same place in which we started. That's happened again, Mark. Help me understand. Well, I think spot on, Doug, if you're looking at the analytics of a few results that we're still waiting on from California, this could be the exact flip, two 22, two 22 to two 13, or yeah, two 22 to two 13, just like the Nancy Pelosi Democrats have ever. It is better, obviously, as you and I know that the Republicans have usurped the majority. I just want to make sure that we're being truthful to the American people of what these expectations are because there's a lot of hope. There's a whole lot of stuff out here. What day one we're going to do this, day one. Be careful what you promised because I think that's part of the problem that we get into that these days is overshooting the runway with the rhetoric as opposed to the results.
Pastor Paul Chappell: What's the Faith-Base of Those 12 Republicans?
"Have a list. This is a freshly updated list of Republican senators who are supporting this, and all of these folks, by the way, were just like Barack Obama and one of them in particular was staunchly opposed to same sex marriage. That would be Mitt Romney of Utah, who now supports the bill, also Tom tillis of North Carolina, rob Portman of Ohio and Susan Collins of Maine, a Lisa Murkowski is hinting that she will support this along with senators, let's see here. Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa, telling Business Insider that she was keeping an open mind about the bill. So you could have more Republican senators joining the Democrats pastor. Yes, that's a concern. And I always, as a pastor, I always ask myself, what's the faith base of the individual making that vote, what's going on at their home church? Because it usually influences them. And then the second thing is who are their donors. And there's a lot of money that comes from this crowd. What they're all saying is that this was passed at the Supreme Court level. We're just agreeing with the Supreme Court. But that's not exactly as I understand it true. This is an opportunity for them to be what our founders intended. It checks and balances in how far this law is codified and how much of a nuisance it becomes to the faith community. And so at the very least, they need to consider language in the in this that excludes religious organizations and I've yet to hear about that. Well,
Caller: Contacting Republicans Who Supported Respect for Marriage Act
"Not only did I make one call, I made two calls. This morning, I saw where senator burr and senator Tom tillis here, my state home state of North Carolina voted to advance that Bill. And when I called tied, I got voicemails. And I left a voicemail and for Tom till I asked him why he was explaining why he was supporting that. That's going to declare war on people of faith. You know, he and I are about to stay in age and I also ask him if he could give me one biblical verse and the holy Bible old test of a New Testament that condones marriage between people of the same sex. Todd, it's not just this issue with pillows or burr, going back a year ago when it was extending the debt limit and then the infrastructure Bill, it was the gun Bill earlier this year. These guys have voted to write lock stock and barrel with Joe Biden. And when they vote that way Todd and you call them up, all you get is the voicemail and they will not call you back. They are tone deaf to the people like me that have voted to put them in office. And once they get there and Washington tide, I don't know why. But they align themselves with things that I never thought that they would. And it just blows my mind.

Ted Button Wins North Carolina
"Now, in North Carolina, Ted button one handily. That was never in doubt. And so it does go, he's also an experienced congressional member of Congress. Nominates someone with experience. You win a title action nominate someone without it, you make mistakes and you lose in Pennsylvania. I also think and I want to test this out on you Michael. I've said for a year and a half Josh Shapiro is the most talented Democrat in the United States. He crushed it in Pennsylvania yesterday over Doug mastriano, who's never been on this show because I just think he's a terribly flawed candidate. I had Dan baldock on just to try and take one for the team. And I thought he was in the running. He did not come close. It's not close. It's not close to Maggie Hassan was a candidate who didn't face the press of one by 1000 at 17.6 years ago. If you can't beat a candidate, you can't get 1018 more votes for the candidate like that. I think you've got a real problem there. When you're governor is running up a double digit win. Sununu could have won that seat, but he chose not to. Well, you ought to try, you know, I ought to try the governor Colorado. I think a smart guy and I think the governor, democratic governor elect Josh Shapiro of Pennsylvania, looks like a smart guy. They're not eating all drinking all the Biden Kool-Aid. Interesting people and interesting states. But that helped to prevent the Republicans have held that seat in Pennsylvania, that Senate seats since 1968 since dick Schweikart beat Joseph Clark. I don't know if you were following that election. No, no, I know why. But I was.
Eric Tells Us About His Recent Trip to Lynchburg, Virginia
"I was in Lynchburg, Virginia. At Liberty University, for an amazing event, Ryan helfenbein, Ryan is amazing. And he heads up the faith and freedom center at liberty. Ryan put together this conference, Sean Foyt was there, Liz Wheeler was there, Megan basham, my hero, Megan bed she's amazing. We spend time with her. Ralph Reed was, I mean, all these friends and it was amazing and lieutenant governor mark, was it Robinson, North Carolina, who's just a fighter. It was the whole thing was incredible. But I had to leave the next day because now this is the thing. I knew I was going to be in Pittsburgh because I spoke yesterday three times at grace life church pastor pastures book and Amy schaeffer invited me to speak here in Pittsburg because I was in Harrisburg. We met whatever ten days ago when I was in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. So they invited me to be here. And then I get a phone call from you, Alvin seda, telling me, hey Eric, Saturday, which was two days ago, when you're going to be in Pittsburgh, guess what's happening in that neck of the Woods. And I said, what's happening, Alban? I've been telling the people what was happening. Well, Doug mass gianno Emmett Oz and president Donald Trump were campaigning and they had a big rally in latrobe PA. Right. So we cooked up a scheme where your identical twin brother, who I believe also had a birthday two days ago. That's right. What a coincidence. That's amazing. He picked me up from the airport. And he looked so much like you that it's kind of disturbing. It's kind of like wait a minute. You're Alvin. No, you're not Alvin. Yes, you're out, but no, you're not Alvin. Who are you?
Republican Candidates Targeted Ahead of Election Day
"Carry lakes, campaign headquarters, apparently had white powdered substances sent to her office over the weekend. No word yet because the mainstream media spent a much time covering that story. If she'd have been a Democrat, they'd be all over it. There was another Republican candidate in North Carolina, somebody fired a gun, put a bullet through the window near where his kids were sleeping. When you sit around and frighten people and intimidate voters into thinking that if you don't get your way democracy is going to die, we are talking a level of evil that I don't think we've ever seen.
Biden Wants to Shut Down Coal
"Joe Biden was the best surrogate ever Republican had in the United States over the weekend as we head up the election. It's election eve. I'm Hugh Hewitt inside the beltway on November the 7th and the year of our lord 2022 and the numbers look just dreadful for Democrats and getting worse, RealClearPolitics, battle for the Senate 48 considered lockup for the Republicans 44 considered lockup for the Democrats in 8 pass ups. I don't think these are toss ups, Georgia, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Wisconsin, Colorado, Arizona, Nevada and Washington state. They don't consider Ohio competitive anymore in North Carolina. Those are off the map. Ron Johnson is going to win by half a dozen points. I actually had an anonymous senator senator who remained on his tummy. They're looking at 55. That would mean they get them all, and either Washington figure Colorado. That's what I assume they mean is that one of those is too big of a lift, but they get them all. Because it's just run against. And then Joe Biden went out and just helped us out. He helped us out a lot on Friday. In Pennsylvania when he announced the end of coal. I'm not just Pennsylvania, by the way. There are congressional races in Kentucky and Ohio, other places that use coal, other palaces that dig Cole for the places that chip call when he says we're shutting down all coal, what he's doing is shutting down railroad trip. I mean, just destroying the economy, cut number one, Joe Biden. In oceanside, California on Friday. From wind and solar than it is from corn oil, literally cheaper, not a joke. I was just and so are you going to accommodate that transition? I was in Massachusetts about a month ago. On the side of the largest old coal plant in America. Guess what? It costs them too much money. They can't count. No one's building new coal plants because they can't rely on it. Even if they have all the coal guaranteed for the rest of the existence of the plant, so it's going to become a wind generation. And all they're doing is you're going to save them a hell of a lot of money. I'm using the same transmission line that transmits a coal fired electric on. We're going to be shutting these plants down all across America. And having to be shutting these plants down all across America.
Why Laws and Policies Should IGNORE Racial Distinctions
"The Supreme Court has heard arguments in both the Harvard case and the university of North Carolina case involving affirmative action and racial preferences. The decision will be out sometime early next year. Maybe in the spring, so maybe march, maybe April, we'll have to see. I'm expecting a very good decision and one that is going to really change the landscape of universities. And I hope begin a larger process of changing the landscape of American society, changing and how by rooting out this race consciousness that has now become embedded in society. And has also become embedded in the law. Now, it's one thing if something is in society, it's in the customs on the mores of society. And that could be a good thing or a bad thing. It's a whole other thing to take in this case, racial identity. And use it as the basis for state sponsored discrimination. Let's remember, we have a long history and ugly history in the country, led by the Democrats, by the way, of state sponsored segregation, state sponsored discrimination. Against blacks. And oddly enough, we have now been living for about 40 years. With state sponsored segregation and state sponsored discrimination, but this time, in favor of blacks,
Why Were We Able to Know the Winner of the 2016 Election in Hours?
"On earth then were we able to know the winner of the 2016 presidential election within hours? Why is it that we were able to know that Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton with Pennsylvania, Ohio, Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan, North Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Arizona, having enough ballots be counted so what is different about 2016 versus 2020 versus 2022. What's the difference exactly? Oh, the difference is that they changed some of the laws. And they changed some of the procedures because they never want 2016 to happen again. You see, in 2008, 2012 and 16 presidential elections, we know who wins on election night. We know who wins and we see how they're doing and that kind of orderly necessary process of I lost this person is the next president or whatever is very important. It's healthy. So why is it that 6 years later, we're moving backwards. So we can know Donald Trump won the presidency on election night in 2016. Why were we able to count those ballots mister Biden orderly and mannerly and in an organized fashion in 2016, but we can't do it in 2022. Executive director in Arizona of Maricopa County said here is the canvas schedule. The canvas schedule is early ballots will be posted on the evening of November 8th at 8 p.m.. The next election day results will be posted around 2 a.m. in Arizona. And then there will just be ballots ongoing for days and days and days and days and days to come.
Dinesh Reviews the Harvard and UNC Cases on Affirmative Action
"The justices of the Supreme Court have just heard a dispute in a very important set of cases, two cases involving affirmative action, affirmative action in American universities, one involves Harvard University, a private university, but one that does have relations with the government, government contracts, and so on. The other a state university university of North Carolina. And these universities are being sued by a group called students for fair admissions. And they're being sued for engaging in widespread and systematic racial preferences. Now for many years, these universities tried to hide and disguise what they were doing. They would say things like, well, when two applicants apply and they have similar credentials, we kind of give a nod to the one that is coming from a minority or disadvantaged background. It's become very clear and these cases affirm this that we're now talking not about equally qualified applicants and giving somebody a nudge. We're talking about candidates who are completely different in their academic preparation, their grades, their test scores, their extracurriculars, their recommendations, and by and large academically inferior candidates are chosen and given admissions and superior candidates to turn away. This is done on the basis of race. By and large, what universities do is they identify candidates, applicants, as members of either underrepresented or over represented groups. And they use kind of broad categories. So the broad category is like white. Hispanic. Asian and Native American, and you fall into one of these camps. Now, right away, you can see that these camps are a little problematic.

"Then you're backed in a corner because you're thinking, I really would like to tell these people how their money is being spent, but their government won't talk to me. So that's been a big challenge. I would say another challenge has been really making this digestible and making this understandable because it would be really easy to just go like the dark and Y route with this coverage and stuff. But I feel like that would minimize its impact if I was just using legal and government jargon. I try to make it as readable as possible, I try to make it I try to always lead with the narrative and focus on the impact of the money rather than just, you know, hard news stories. So that has been a challenge because sometimes it is easier to say they, you know, they put a $1 million towards this, but making the stories just readable and digestible and understandable. It has been a challenge that I have to stay very come is enough. So are you finding in your approach to it that way is it, you know, I need to find the human element. I need to find somebody who's impacted by this or something new that's happened that's affecting a community. So that they can say, hey, you know, the next time you go and do whatever that's because of our money or something like that. Do you go out and try to find somebody who's directly affected by a particular arpa spending. I would love to do like door to door, old fashioned journalism in that way with this money, but I do cover an entire region. What usually happens is when I speak with mayors or county commissioners, they know someone or if it's an infrastructure project where they tell me where the sewer system is going to go, I can Google Maps them, buying that business right there. That's going to be impacted by this these new stormwater drains. For example, I'm remembering I wrote I interviewed the owner of an architecture firm in Brevard, which is in the rainiest county in western North Carolina in North Carolina as a whole. And they're fixing their storm water with arpa and so I Googled who was impacted and I just called him and I was like, how's this going to help you? So usually the governments will want to go ahead and connect me with people. But if not, I do the journalism I'll go on social media and

In 2021, Congress passed the American rescue plan act, authorizing nearly $2 trillion to help states and localities through the economic uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. How these public funds were used seems like the perfect subject for a local journalist to investigate. I'm Michael O'Connell. Welcome to its all journalism.

She spent one year looking at how local governments were using American rescue plan act funds, and she's here to tell us about it, Shelby. Welcomed its all journalism. Yeah, thank you for having me. So tell me a little bit about yourself. How did you get interested in journalism and how did you end up at the Carolina public press? Yeah, well, I actually studied creative writing in college and wanted to be a poet. And then when I was a senior in college, I had to do an internship and I chose to do it at Jackson free press and Jackson Mississippi. And I just kind of got this taste of how you could pair being overly passionate, which is how I am with being a decent writer and then journalism was born. For me, so I went to grad school for it, and got a job at a small newspaper in rural Tennessee, and then I worked for the citizen times here in Nashville for a little while,

"Taking someone like duke on the futures price at like plus one 50, you can get Ben Caro at three to one some places to be the MVP of the final four. Have you seen an uptick in action at all this week in terms of player props? Yeah, I think that's right. And I think it's an express in the exact manner that you mentioned. We talk about it all the time and the money line in the Super Bowl and the quarterback and the correlation between those two things. And how you can often get a lot of value, particularly when it comes to the more explosive quarterbacks because correlation is so high. And certainly people are targeting us on those spots. There's also room for us more room for us to make slight errors there and offer people a better closing value on top of that added correlation that I alluded to. So there's certainly been a lot of demand for player related markets not just the futures, but also the player statistics in the game and we're seeing decent interest already in rebounds and points already at this stage for both of the weekends games. It makes complete sense. And when we talk about both those games, have you seen anything on either that is sharp cider total or something that you think that you're going to be have a ton of liability on that you'll be rooting for potentially? Not really. I mean, the lines really haven't fluctuated that much. The guys have a pretty solid opinion on the teams obviously at this stage. I think Kansas not really that high on. So I think in our futures, there probably see a slightly favorite dick against the market. Volume has been high though. Pretty good spread so far. Carolina probably been the most popular one about a ratio of two to one in terms of tickets that we've written on the money line for that. We're getting enough to where action I think on both games for neither of them in isolation to be that big of a risk or exposure from our perspective. Obviously outside of the future is that I mentioned already interesting we were getting some rumblings that North Carolina may see some increased action from the public come game day. For a loyalist of listeners that listen right away. There is an NIT championship this evening in Madison Square Garden, your backyard. Are you going to the game and have you seen anything on that between Xavier and Texas a.m.? Am I going to the game? I'm certainly not going to the game. I actually would like to but not when I get away at home with unfortunately this time around. Keep my bullets for the more meaningful ones and I'm not going to waste once a day. Can only win so many wars. Exactly. And yeah, look, we've seen some sharp money. I think for Xavier this morning, we're minus four most of the market is up four and a half we're getting plenty of a and M action at four. But I think the information from that wage or this morning is probably enough for us to be comfortable there. If you can grab the four and a half out there with savior, I would suggest that's probably the sharpest but we've seen this week and something you should try and tell if you can get it. You were buying a practice email that he said. Makes complete sense, dot anything on your end? No, I mean, I think hey look, I mean, there's two marquee games with four of the biggest blue blood programs out there that have showed incredible format. And here those numbers John that you share how the NCAA tournament compares to the Super Bowl just simply staggering on a variety of fronts, speaking to the growth of the sport and how it's an activity, it's more or less that people don't follow for the better part of four and a half months yet they all want to be experts and put their money to good work for them. To kind of lay out the sports calendar, when you look at the NCAA tournament culminating, we know we get into the dog days of summer down the road, but the NBA playoffs Stanley Cup playoffs. The focus shift in the office for you to primarily football and trying to create a lot of those unique football markets coming up with the draft looming up about a month down the road. Yeah, I mean, it's a different responsibility for different sections of our team. And I think most of the focus is certainly on college basketball right now. The NBA playoffs are a big part and we've seen the kind of increased desire around the NBA markets futures draft is coming up as well. So there's always something to keep them occupied. Certainly looking at things like season long wind talls for the NFL and I expect them to be there imminently. So I can never prioritize NFL enough. It's simply amazing. I remember when you used to long for the days behind the counter until you got to the Major League Baseball star break or at least the culmination of some of the spring sports, there was a little bit of downtime. It doesn't appear to be the case in the sports betting industry, especially with the way that we are trending. John, can't thank you enough for your contributions, like we say all the time, not only during the football season, but for stepping in as well throughout the course of the NCA tournament. With these three and I'm going to really put the pressure to you because we're going to do an NFL off season podcast that we've told our listeners about on May 5th leading up to The Kentucky Derby. But because Payne and I know absolutely nothing, except about cleaning shit out of stalls when it comes to the horse races. We may have to make you our horse racing expert to break down the Derby, the oaks and maybe try and find a winner or two on the undercard for us that weekend. Yeah, I'd love that talk. I don't keep close enough to it, so I'd love the opportunity to spend some time and have a reason to go through the foreign book a little bit and always look forward to the Darby's incredible event and cards. So yeah, more than happy to join. We will hold you to that and again, you can follow John Sheeran on Twitter that's at J Sheeran J S H E R and one 9 8 one. John, best of luck this weekend and enjoy the final three or I guess four since paying through the NIT and meaningful college basketball games this season. I appreciate it guys. Thanks for looking forward to this. You know pain, of course, we had to give John the opportunity to take to victory lap because he did say and he was steadfast in his belief that he was never going to buy into the Gonzaga hype and some of his pessimism was rewarded a lot earlier than we anticipated. What is it like to see him sweat with some of that futures liability into this coming weekend? He won't be happy with a duke Kansas final. That's for sure. That sound like. You know, a couple. We know those were the two big future Betsy. He took prior to the tournament. So he's going to have a sweat either way. He's going to be rooting for one of the two to lose in the final four. And then he's going to be rooting for the other to lose in the championship game. Everybody wants to make a buck or two and should be great, but I can't thank John enough for his contribution, stepping in with us for all three college basketball podcasts. We know he's an NFL guy through and through. So taking him out of his comfort zone a little bit. I can't thank him enough for all that. But pain, it almost feels like it becomes a sprint with college basketball compared to the marathon that we go through around these parts with the NFL and college football. But we've come to the part in the show where we try and find the last investable opportunity before we bid a fond farewell to our listeners before it will reconvene about a month from now with our NFL off season podcast. Have you found an opportunity for us to make a few bucks going into the final four weekend? So first of all, we will be back discussing the.

"Of the NCAA tournament. You of course can follow John Sheeran on Twitter that's at Jay Sheeran. One 9 8 one and John. You know, we were very critical of some of your strong assessments that were anti Gonzaga going into the round of 16. The floor is yours, my friend, to take that victory lap and tell pain and I to shove it along with anybody else that believe this was finally going to be the iteration of Mark fu's bunch that could cut down the nets and win that elusive national title. That's not my style and you throw enough mud, some of it sticks to the wall of effectively and that's all we did. Look, there were, I think, exposed in the game, but yeah, a lot went Arkansas way and yeah, it's a nice to see someone else. John, because I record this podcast prior to what you thought was recording. That was all recorded. This isn't even recorded. Tell us how you really feel about Gonzaga and specifically Chet holmgren. Because we're going to have a side benefit. Yeah, look, I'm just not a fan. I think he's obviously a unique specimen, but I think physically he's got big issues with how he got bullied in a lot of the game and put him off his game. I didn't think he shot the ball very well at all. And sure you can talk about his ability at that size to be able to handle the basketball, but if that is an issue in the college sphere, then I can only imagine what the NBA, his MBA peers will do to him when he gets in there. So unless he can find 60 or 80 pounds and months time a few months time, I think you'll be in big trouble. We figure we'll pack it. Down, a little fish and chips, a little pasta, meatballs between the two of you guys as a nutritionist. Chat home girl come rolling into his NBA season like 50 60 pounds. Heavier. It could be an absolute force in the paint. He could fix it with my diet. We'll just get him on the abrasion damn day shambo died. There you go. Yeah, I think they test for that kind of thing in the National Basketball Association. But that's a different discussion for a different day. John Wick Gonzaga going down. How does your future book look with the four remaining teams knowing that their blue Bloods? We talked about the first podcast earlier. I know it's circulated through social media that you guys took some pretty big bets on both Kansas and duke leading up to the first game of the tournament. Yeah, I mean, that's been exactly it. Nostradamus wouldn't have predicted this last four in the same way that that better did. We took some pretty hefty bets. I think North Carolina duke in particular, there was also a follow-up bed on Villanova, so right now the only winner left in the four that we have is Kansas, so we were not that high on them, though, so expect that customers be walking away with a nice profit. And if it's either North Carolina or duke, we're talking in the realms of 10 million lasts for us on the tournament outright. So a pretty hard one to take, but overall the tournament has been amazed and handles through the roof. I look back at last Sunday and see the Saint Peter's game without the ability to be able to wager on it in New Jersey was double the highest turnover NBA game on that day. So a huge demand, huge event and looking forward to seeing the last weekend on us. You know, when you talk about handle and I'll let pain ask the hard hitting questions about what you guys have seen for the two games as far as sharp action and such. But for a game like North Carolina and duke, Saturday and prime time, it's a second game of the day. How does it compare at least as way you guys are forecasting compared to a marquee NBA game like we saw last night between say the Golden State Warriors and the Phoenix Suns it's on national television with some of the preeminent teams in the association or maybe even the Miami Heat Boston Celtics game that preceded it. Yeah, I mean it's bigger, it's almost double I think is what we're seeing like the numbers we have already for these games this weekend are really, really big and I think I alluded to with last week certainly a couple of days I would even bigger than NFL games in the middle of football season so March Madness is right at the top in terms of importance of an event for us over the month and the ability to be able to continually drive volume expand on the product innovative over the next year or so we have that new model that I alluded to this year and we'll have a better version of that for next year and I think it's only onwards and upwards for the collegiate sports and particularly the high profile events like football playoff season and marsh madness. John, I asked you on the opening round podcast. I'll put your feet to the fire again here now that you have a little bit more data and how much money do you think you guys are going to take on March Madness as a whole? Our listeners like that big round number. I don't have the number and I can easily get it but I think the first round was twice as big as the Super Bowl in terms of handle like that's how much demand there is there for the tournaments. Like I said, I think something in the rounds of $16 million in handle for the Saint Peter's game without the ability to be able to bet on that and it's all stays. That's unreal. So yeah, you're talking huge huge numbers on these games. I think we have probably 2 million in handle on some of the weekend's games already. Have you guys seen an uptick this week in terms of player props? I mean, I know there's different ways to attack these markets and certainly some people are still entering some of the futures markets with four teams remaining, but sometimes kind of pulling out a specific player to score the most points for the remainder of the final four, be the most valuable player in the final four where as opposed to taking someone like duke on the futures price at like plus one 50, you can get Ben Caro at three to one some places to be the MVP of the final four. Have you seen an uptick in action at all this week in terms of player props? Yeah, I think that's right. And I think it's an express in the exact manner that you mentioned. We talk about it all the time and the money line in the Super Bowl.

"Assumptions when some of these runs happen, but here we are with four real blue Bloods. I mean, villano is a blue blood now. Kansas, obviously, duke and Carolina. In ten years ago, in that same building, the Superdome, the 14 teams were Kentucky, Kansas, Ohio State, and Louisville. So I think college basketball is still controlled by the haves, you know, more so than the have nots. And in a tournament like this where I don't think we had a great team this year. So those teams that had the edge in talent have really found a way to win. Duke is doing it late. Obviously, North Carolina's finding a way Kansas, Villanova. I mean, so these are all teams that come in to the year if someone would have said they're going to be in the final four, you would have said, that makes a lot of sense to me. So the underdogs have been great storylines, but at this stage, it's usually the powerhouse teams, and that's what we're watching. And it feels like you, Myron, as somebody who covers the game, it's like, you're not necessarily missing the underdog at this point. You like the matchups that you got right now. Yeah, I think people think they want upsets all the way through and they really don't. You want upsets in the first weekend, and then you want the best teams to compete from the sweet 16 forward. Yeah. Yeah, buy it. All I know is that as bedding goes for me, I am taking the over on whatever word count. That Vegas gives me on your personal personal journalistic output here.

Because what is the one thing that we used to say growing up in north carolina when people ask us about north carolina. He's got the mountains and it's got the beach and it's got the piedmont. I remember booze creek. Elementary school the posters. That were everywhere. We're not motivational in nature. They work tourism in nature. Yeah they would. They would have a picture of a scenic part of north carolina and then it would just say in bold letters at the bottom north carolina. It's like why really walk. The halls of it was like a a a tourism bureau. Yeah and so. We really had this appreciation of how much our home state had off. Well here's the thing. Sandy beaches and lighthouses and blue ridge parkway. I feel like we have been. We were spoiled. We grew up in north carolina. And now we live in california so from a landscape standpoint option. I never understood. You know there are people who live in states that don't have the beach or the mountains a lot of states. Don't have either of those things and we were just like. Of course we've got both of course we're within two hours driving distance of both if you live in the raleigh area you know what i'm saying like it's a wonderful place by the way. That place is growing fastest growing place in the nation. I think or one of the top places. Right now is a triangle area and like haven't been there in eighteen months and just a couple of streets that i went on a couple of routes like going from my brother and sister in law's house to my brother's house unrecognizable because there's so many communities going. Oh my gosh. it's crazy weird. Everything i mean you go. South like you go Apex few quai- down in lymington bubis creek. Like where i'm like visiting my kinfolk. All of the fields are are now. She's cul de sac cookie cutter communities not farm. And we're not farming crop seymour foreign people and i'm gonna eat. I don't know how they're building stuff when you can't get with the supply chain. Don't get me started on the supply chain. I mean they're freaking pop house popping up everywhere. What were these people come from. Will you know apple's coming in amazon. Amazon's coming in amazon came in. I'm just growing like crazy. I mean i drove the raver leg. And it's like it's an older neighborhood but when we moved in trees were short now. The trees are tall and it looks like ultra students meant to be the growth. I i was blown away by all. These houses are building. So it's off putting really good. I experienced the mountains of piedmont and the coast over a period of two weeks. And really i experienced the mountains and the beach. I just drove through the piedmont. I i i spent one night. Maybe two nights in few quai- but then it was the beach. I mean it was the mountains and the beach and boy you know i was like i took this place for granted but this is a night i mean. Of course. I've got both of those things to here now. Nobody lives at the mountains or the beach. So we'll there's quite a population there but you mean people that i rela family. I mean you went all the way home and anybody to know. So pro jesse. Actually jesse came up with the idea to take and again. Yes jesse and locked. It was just me and shepherd story on that essentially is that they all went back before two weeks before for some other events like stuff going on this summer getting ready for college job etc so lock and jesse ended up staying home just means shepherd went but it was jesse's idea that we do something with the maclean clan in the mountains of north carolina which interestingly know a few years ago we took the mclaughlin clan to scotland to find out..

"Men voted in favor of calling for a convention and to succeed from the union yet. Five hundred thirty two voted against the idea and then again once more the election results were tossed out and when the convention was held. Madison county's representative to the for secession was represented by dr. Joseph a mcdowell and dr mcdowell voted to secede from the union now dr mcdowell was actually from asheville north carolina and he was the owner of the warm springs hotel whose foundation still stands in hot springs north carolina and the good doctor was also a backer of sheriff merrill at that time as i said one hundred sixty one years ago the citizens of madison county they met in marshall county seat to select delegates to the state convention to make the decision on whether they would basically be for the north or before the south during the american civil war as is usually the case on election day. Not only in the united states. But i'm sure in other parts of the world bars were left open to help citizens fortify themselves to celebrate or lament. The party's future now growing up in madison county myself. I was told several times that madison county was dry county in other words. No alcohol sales because of this incident that were. I'm about to talk to you about. And that was the reason. Why mount madison county tri county. Now i don't know about dry. You might dam up the creek a bit but still. You can't keep a man from digging a well or catching rainwater figure that symbolism victoria. You're at it but why bother sometimes scott. You're just a strange person who says strange things. Okay then anyway. Sheriff merrill had been making the rounds about town and by early afternoon. He was quite. It's session is 'cause not to mention being quite schnookered. Apparently sheriff merrill celebrated with his secessionist friends who were very quick to offer a little brown jug were bottle and the voters weren't at a loss for quickly obtaining a little bit of drank if they so desired again including our share of merrill now also in the crowd. That day was a gentleman by the name of neely tweed i. Mr tweed was the first elected clerk of superior court. In madison county was adjusted the piece as well as a postmaster not to mention being a schoolteacher and he was a unionist he was for keeping the union together and he was also the father of eleven children and at least one of those children was led him at the voting polls. You got a net these guys world talking about sure did a lotta begat and when it comes to kids and family sheriff. Merle was unable to continue excitement and stationed himself in the center of town where he hollered out wrath for jefferson davis in the confederacy now. The crowd standing near the polling place Several individuals yelled out an answer and very equally passionate cry her raw for washington and the union now not to be undone as is many a man with too much to drink. The sheriff pulled his pistol out and walked over towards the group of men where neely tweet happened to be. Nearly tweed backed away as well did other people when you have an intoxicated man with a pistol. You generally want to give him as much room as you can. But another gentleman who apparently was quite boulder or possibly isn't talk skated the sheriff was. I don't know he approached the sheriff. Now the sheriff noticed the gun but beneath The weapons shoved in his waistband. Sheriff asked him why he had brought his gun to the polling place and he wasn't satisfied with the answer that he got so he swung as pistol around and pointed at some other individuals in the crowd and said that the sheriff saw another man armed as well in the crowd and pulling his weapon out or up the sheriff his gun to fire in the man jumped behind the crowd and unfortunately the bullet struck nearly tweet sun passing through his arm in lodging in his ribcage. Now that was the point. The mood of the crowd suddenly became very ugly. Sheriff may have been intoxicated but he was still aware of his surroundings and the fact that standing on the street he was outnumbered by some people that weren't very happy with him. Iran to a nearby close friend's house for safety of course being pursued by the unionist men that were in the town square followed as he entered the house. Homeowner seeing what was going on both of the door behind the sheriff. And the sheriff ran upstairs now in another moment of brilliance. The sheriff opened up the upstairs window. That looked out over the street and shouted out. Come up here all you black republicans and take a shot about with me. Well in his answer to the statement from the sheriff ille- tweet fired a gun at he had received from another in the crowd and apparently weighing wounded. Sheriff merrill the town constable somebody notified him and he rushed to the scene. Arriving on the scene he took stock of where the sheriff was and talked to other people and immediately rushed to the house where the sheriff was at. He was leading by the homeowner in rushed upstairs to the bedroom where the sheriff's will has to take him into custody. Get him out. Find out what was going on. It's kind of a known what his position in the matter. Was that time. The open door though allowed. Some of the crowd into advanced into the house apparently unaware that tweet was behind him. When the constable opened the bedroom door neely had on direct line of sight on the sheriff and fired before the sheriff could fire at him and killed the sheriff. It was at this point as the old saying goes all hell broke loose in the town marshal. Nearly tweet was able to escape by going to kentucky. And he mustered up as a union private in the fourth regiment tennessee infantry company d. and where he joined to the union army unfortunately while still in basic training or what minimal training they had before they sent them up to the front of fight he developed fever and he never was able to return madison county during a civil war services claim by his family that he predicted his own death on a certain day at noon and sure enough. He sat down on that day. April twenty first eighteen sixty one in died from the fever at camp gerber in flat lick kentucky and he was buried in an unmarked grave by his son. Who was the same son that was shot by the sheriff that day one hundred sixty years ago now. Ransom p murrah was the first person in madison county to be killed because of the civil war. Many madison county citizens died in that war from both sides county. Put out a reward for the capture and arrest of of tweet but it was never collected. Tweets brother was ambushed by the home guard and tortured trying to obtain information about where.
