"John Kirby yesterday on Fox goes on with Martha maccallum and in a tremendous act of journalism Martha maccallum just eviscerates John Kirby puts him on the spot I played the video earlier in the show Basically brings up this little conundrum the administration finds themselves in Biden finds it perfectly okay to attack a private company in Twitter the Biden administration oh we've got our eyes on Twitter We don't like what they're doing blah blah blah You've heard all that And yet apple that according to multiple reports was been colluding with the Chinese government to shut down AirDrop it's really weird amber Kirby had nothing to say We're not getting involved there That's a private company I mean is there a bigger example of hierarchy over hypoxia They just don't care They're in charge of like screw We don't care what hypocrites Oh it's so true They did the same thing back when they asked companies and encouraged the boycott in Georgia because they didn't like the election law that was passed there But then just a little while later when there was the question of whether companies should boycott the Olympics that were being held in China the Biden administration suddenly switched gears and said oh well their private companies they can do what they want So they like to exert their influence on corporations when it's politically convenient to them but otherwise they like to pretend they have this laissez-faire stance

How Bruce Jenner Fanned the Flames of American Patriotism

How Bruce Jenner Fanned the Flames of American Patriotism

"But try and remember how we felt as Americans. After the Vietnam War, after Watergate, and believe it or not, patriotism was back on such full public display that people were I swear to God, people were painting fire hydrants and turning them into red, white, and blue star, spangled, monuments, everywhere I remember because my friends and I did it. And Jenner's display at the 1976 Olympics only increased that display of pride in our country. And like basketball, that the Catalan was an Olympic event that America always dominated in. It went way back to Jim Thorpe, an American who had wanted to cath lawn and every Olympics, but three from 1912 to 1968. Think about that. And as what happened in men's basketball, the United States didn't win the Catalan in 1972 because two Soviet athletes took the gold and the silver, so here comes Bruce Jenner who used to sell insurance when he was in training, he brought back gold to America in that year with a world record score of 8616, the points don't matter. It's just what I told you should manner. The fact that a guy had to sell insurance in the off season while he trained to be the best athlete in the world. And after he crossed that finish line in the 1500 meter finale, some fan rushed onto the track and gave him a small U.S. flag on a stick and right away Bruce Jenner thought, and he talked about this on the cabin, he thought, you know, maybe it was a little bit of a hot doggy move to put the flag out there. He felt it was just too much, but he decided to wave the flag anyhow, and that became a transcendent moment in American sports and America in general. Kind of moment you don't see anymore. When you see Olympic champions waving the stars and stripes after their victories now, it's because of Bruce Jenner. And I still remember watching that race. In my living room was a 14 year old kid in just thinking there was nothing and there was nobody better than America.

Eric Describes His Relationship With Running

"Is your favorite part of running and how did you start? My favorite part of running, wow, this could take days for me to answer that because not because there's so much about running that I like, but how did I start? When I was, let's see. It was the summer of 1976. I had just turned 13 and I write about this in my book, fish out of water, all of this is in my book fish out of water. I tell the story of my life. But I remember watching with my brother, I guess it was Frank shorter when the marathon in the Olympics in the Summer Olympics of 76 when Bruce Jenner was the winner of the decathlon. And it inspired me to want to run, but I didn't know at age 13. What does that mean to run? How do you run whatever? So a year later, when cross country when I was, I entered high school actually tenth grade begins in Danbury high school. It was started a tenth grade to high school. I should say at three classes because it's such a big school. So in tenth grade, when I was 14 because I skipped a grade, I was very young, but at age 14, a friend of mine, I mentioned him in the book, Luke benac. He said he was going to go out for cross country. And I thought, well, I always, I've known lukes in 6th grade. I was always faster as a runner than Luke by far. And I thought, well, if Luke could go out for cars company, maybe I should go out for cross country. So I went out for cross country and at age 14 in extremely worn out basketball sneakers, I ran the entire cross country season. I was JV. I'm not particularly talented, but I gave it the old school try and I ran the whole season.

China's Xi Jinping Envisions a Third and Indefinite Term

"Something suspicious is happening in China, there is something it's the National Congress, is that right, or it is, it's kind of the big CCP meeting walk us through what's happening here. Okay, so this is the coronation of Xi Jinping as chairman for life of the CCP. With the national parties conference is, it's a 5 year held every 5 years summit for the CCP. So there's only the 20th one, right? So that means if we can all do math out there, that means it's been a hundred years since they've been doing these. So the 20th party Congress, Xi Jinping has really got his leadership, his elites, his allies, the people that are on his side in every single key position now of the Politburo, the Politburo standing committee, the palaver expanded committee. He is across the military across every single member of the secretariat. It's all of his loyalists, the generals they're all in place for shape. And what he's done is essentially become the new chairman for life of China. So coronation. Now, I called this out in newsweek, I predicted this all the way back in January, January 31st of 2022. And Charlie, you might remember that if you go look at the China hand and the China experts and this whole area, they'll say, well, you know, Xi Jinping is not as strong as everybody thinks he is. We think there's different factions within China that are able to take him down. We think that if the Olympics don't go well, they might, you know, he might fall flat on his face. But Charlie, that wasn't what happened at all as a matter of fact. And in my piece, I predicted that the factions within the CCP are nowhere near. I mean, they've got Jiang Zemin, the guy's like a 100,000 years old, and they say that he's going to be the face of the opposition. The old toad, they call him. This is the guy, by the way, who was behind the crackdown to Tiananmen Square. That's one of the reasons he got the job. And so when you look at what's going forward with this, my gripe with a lot of it is that a lot of the experts and see this on the right and the left, they keep telling you that the CCP is about to collapse. The CCP is about to collapse, but that's actually not what's happening.

You guys, I mean, I have it habit is light years ahead and policy and desantis, but desantis is weaponized it. Next level. So yeah, I worry about Trump because, you know, Trump has proven that democracy is now partisan. Which is a remarkable. Could you imagine being in that audience? Wow, that's so profound. Yeah, democracy is partisan. I'll be honest, the more I hear of Gavin Newsom, the more I believe he's totally beatable. And this is interesting. I mean, if Trump runs in 2024, which it looks like it'd be an inevitability that he's going to run in 2024, or if it's desantis or whatever, you look at the average Republican candidate. You take mastriano, you take Carey Lake, you take Blake masters, you take Herschel Walker, you take JD Vance. They are far and way more articulate than Gavin Newsom, why? They have to deal with legitimate questions on a daily basis.

TBN's never done it. As you know, for many years, TBN was almost solely Bible teaching and music starting with Huckabee and of course Eric began to moving into more commentary and social analysis, political analysis, but they've gone to a new level. They put it in a bid to host the Olympics. In 2028, it's unbelievable what TBN is doing. It's almost frightening, isn't it? But so yes, they're now moving into news and they picked Joel Rosenberg. That's you to host a weekly show. But from Israel, that's kind of amazing actually. Yeah. Well, I am amazing. Honestly, at first I told them no, I appreciate it, but I don't have the time. I don't have any bandwidth for that. I'm running all Israel news, all Arab news, the two only news websites in the world that are published daily original news and commentary from Israel in English from Jerusalem by evangelicals and Messi and Jews four even joke was messy and choose.

Why You Have to Watch Apple TV's "Blackbird"

"I didn't want to buckle and subscribe to Apple TV. I'm sick of paying $10, 8 $7, $12 for all these different streaming services. I said, the hell with Apple, I'm not doing it, but I did because I wanted to see two shows I really heard a lot about. One is a series called blackbird. With taron edgerton Ray Liotta in his last role, in which he so great in, but I have to say he looked very ill in this series. And Paul Walter Hauser, this kid, this guy Hauser, doesn't get enough credit as an actor. He plays a serial killer in a way I've yet to see be done. I mean, the choices he makes are incredible. You might have seen him play the security guard Richard Jewell, the instant hero after foiling the bomb attack on the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. He was amazing in that. But on this series, he's, I mean, this guy is otherworldly. He's one of those actors. He's very heavy. He can only play certain roles, but Jesus Christ, he's he's so good. Doesn't get enough credit. Plays a serial killer in a way I've yet to see be done. The choices he makes are incredible. This is a guy who comes from a comedic background. But he steals every scene he's in with Taron Egerton. And that's not easy because edgerton, especially in this film, is really great as well. Don't base your opinion on him for how he portrayed Elton John in Rocketman. Dump. It's night and day. And to add to all of this, this series is based on a true story about a guy who gets a ten year prison sentence for selling cocaine, but then he's offered to have his sentence greatly reduced if he can become friends with this serial killer and make him admit to him all the girls he killed and where the bodies are buried. The feds took a shot, they tried something in a bag of tricks to see if this kid was a star football player in high school could go to prison and befriend this serial killer and have him open up to him. It's great. Great. I love outside the box thinking like that. Many people thought it was a crazy idea. It was wrong, you can't do this. Fantastic.

The Notorious Gold Club Case in Atlanta With Mark Sewell

"The gold club case here for just first off, give an overview of that and endless job in 'cause I'm gonna have some legal questions for you. So we'll dive in as we go here. Sure. Actually, to get a full measure of the go club case, you have to go back to the Olympics. And the owner of the go club leading up to the Olympics was two brothers, last named kirkendall, but they got an offer that they couldn't refuse literally with cash money to sell the gold club to a very wealthy businessman, a Jewish businessman out of New York, and that'll become important later. Named Steve Kaplan, and he bought the gold club in 95 leading up to the Olympics in 96 because if nothing else, if he only owned it for during the Olympics, that would be a great investment because you're going to have primarily men in to the tune of tens of thousands flocking into the Olympics. And then where are they going to go at nighttime? These are sports oriented men, young men, and et cetera. So the short term gain was to own a strip club during the Olympics. All types of adult entertainment businesses sprung up during the Olympics and then went out of business as soon as the Olympics was over with. It was make the quick money. And Steve Kaplan's case and the gold club's case, they made their money during the Olympics, and then they kept the train rolling. And used the momentum of the Olympics to build the reputation of the goal club. And by the time that our case was over with or by the time we took our case down and made it public, the gold club was the most lucrative strip club in America to the tune of about $8 million a year. Probably 6 million of that was legitimate. If not more, and then a couple million of that was illegitimate ranging from skim tax money to perhaps prostitution money, et cetera but $8 million a year for one club. And that club was owned by a man named Steve Kaplan, as I mentioned, and when he bought the club, that he's from New York, he owns numerous businesses in the New York area. He was a known Gambino associate from the Gambino family, one of the 5 New York families. The New York Gambino squad basically picked up the phone called down to Atlanta and said, hey, we want you to know that one of our guys up here in New York, Steve Kaplan, who's in one of the most powerful crews in the Gambino family, has just bought a business down in Atlanta, and you should be aware of it. And that's the way the FBI exchanges information more or less. When one office knows about crime occurring in another office or the potential for crime or a criminal moving into their area, then we have formal and informal communications where we share that information.

You get to Atlanta and for those listeners here and again, listing all over the country in the world. Atlanta at that time, talk about it from your perspective coming in new. I was born and raised in Georgia. So I was just 60 miles north of Atlanta. That was a really heady time for Atlanta because the Olympics had just came and gone. Of course you had the bombing. You had a lot of things going on. Talk to us about hitting that field office at that time. Yeah, good point. There was plenty of agents to include my training agents that were there or had been there already before the Olympics and as well as the early 90s. And they would tell you and they would tell me that they were there when they saw Atlanta transition from a medium sized southern city to a more of a metropolitan city that could that didn't represent necessarily the south anymore because it was just a little bit of everything. So by the time the Olympics had been completed and the building and the infrastructure that came with the Olympics was completed. And then the world's attention was on Atlanta and Atlanta grew in reputation. And all of these things factor in and the low cost of living by the time I arrived in 97, Atlanta was the New York of the south. It was also referred to as the black Hollywood. Because of the influence of rap music and black entertainment in general. So it was, I think you might have said it already. It was a very happening place in

When Egregious Injustice Occurs, You Can't Just 'Move On'

"In the last segment, I talked about how the Supreme Court might be taking the view that one can't do very much about the past election, but the court might take steps to tighten up the process, bring it more in line with the constitution for the 2024 election. But I think that we shouldn't take the view that 2020 is in the rearview mirror and that somehow this is something that we need to quote move on from. Yes, in the end, we do have to move on, but I think we don't want to move on without some reckoning of what happened in 2020. And I came to this view really not initially, but after I did all the work I did both to do the movie 2000 meals and the accompanying book, which by the way comes out at the end of August, you can pre order it now on Amazon, it's called well. You guessed it. 2000 meals, but there's a little tag that says the full story why because there's going to be more in the book than there was in the movie. Now, initially when I began work, went through the vote, Debbie and I did. I took the view that look, we want to make a movie that's going to tell the truth, about 2020, and we want to try to fix things in the future, but it never crossed my mind that we want to do anything about 2020 itself. And yet, the more I dug into it, the more I realized, well, if a grievous injustice has been done, then you can't simply quote move on. Think about I mentioned this example other times the Tour de France. If Lance Armstrong cheated 7 or 8 times to win, she did during the Olympics. Well, I mean, don't you take away the guy's medals? You just say, let's fix the Tour de France for the next round, so it doesn't happen again, let line scores have his glory. No, we want to deprive him of the fruit of the cheating.

FINA Votes to Restrict Transgender Women From Competitions

"Some common sense at last, the world's governing body and swimming. It's called Athena. Has effectively banned transgender women from competing in women's events. The female members voted 71% in favor of a policy, basically it only permits swimmers who have transitioned before the age of 12 to compete in women's events. So the way this worked is that, well, the controversy was kind of driven by Leah Thomas, the University of Pennsylvania swimmer, biological male, a trans, who entered the transgender NCAA championship. Basically destroyed the competition, and people are going to say, wait a minute. So fina created a working group. This is an international body, by the way, a working group, and the working group was made up of medical experts, legal experts, sports figures to review all this. And they decided, you know what? We can't have it. And so at the Olympics and an international events, it's very simple. They use the key kind of marker of what they call Tanner stage two or before age 12. Whichever is later. So if you haven't transitioned by then, you can't do it. And now obviously they don't care the other way if you're a female to male transgender athlete. In other words, if you are transgender male, you are able to compete, but the idea is that if you are a biological man, lose transition to female, then you then you have

I think it's critical and it goes into the larger question of sort of what who are we internally and then who who we want to be extradited to the world sort of what are we becoming and how how should that. Look and look the bottling. This is so interesting because we're at this crazy moment. In history share the olympics are back because the western world had renaissance and the greek culture reasserted itself over the christian culture so now modern western culture is this mix and the whole world is now competing in this christian. Greek mix that recall the western world and because the jews are having our renaissance and delta state. We are now participating in these events. It's it's you everything about this moment. History just knocks you for sure but the one thing i want to mention it. Specifies that we're not we're participating not as not as hidden jews hidden israelis loud and proud. And that's i think that's important to make that distinguish distinct distinguish between is just like that on the stage. What what are we showing the world. And that's that's the difference. In my opinion we always talk. About how complicated. Things aren't this podcast. We're always talking about with simple truth and that's true keep. It is sick of the word. But the truth is when when when when they play tic in an israeli your heartbeat. You're just proud so although it is complicated and this episode was about the complications of the olympics. It's okay sometimes. I feel that patriotic pry. Yeah of hearing a tickle playing on an international stage. We waited long enough for. Oh yeah all right..

"This year. i thought the commentary was really helpful. And it did actually teach me a wad about the sport. The commentators would say things like that was an old trick. That's a classic trick that older. Bmx writers use and has fallen out of favor. Because it's like this complicated to do and really explaining the amount of effort that it takes for a one minute run and how much energy that that takes how impressive these tricks are and watching it. I feel like i started being able to pick out. Oh they did that trick really well. So they're going to get a good score. I loved watching all the women compete. You should look up charlotte worthington's gold medal run because it's definitely worth a watch. I was like jumping up and down. And i hardly ever do that and i really appreciated. How the announcers managed to talk about. Competitors ages without sounding like woah baby is competing against an old hag like some other sports commentators tend to do curiel ducky is a dusty old bag of twenty four. How could a twenty nine year old compete against a sixteen year old. It's it's just like. I wish that there was a way to talk about ages without being like. Wow twenty nine. What are they doing. At the olympics the gymnastics team. I would say is one of the broadcast teams. That does it pretty decent job. And that's probably in part because gymnastics is still popular and probably the highest rated event at the summer olympics. Every time i kind of wish everyone would follow their lead a little bit more. They'll explain it bill every once in a while they don't want to interrupt the actual routine itself they might go You know in the mill lane and they'll be like okay so you know here's why this was an issue they'll tell you why they'll also pause and sometimes let you watch it without the constant commentary. Yeah i appreciate that. Also in the sense that i have learned how to look up what i need to know. I've watched a bunch of fencing and first of all when they say it's going to be a team fencing event. I want the whole team. Run at the whole other team. And everybody to start laying fencing. That's my vision. I want an action movie man. Anyway when i was watching the fencing there are a bunch of different fencing events. They all basically the same to me. Because i'm ignorant fencing. Judo i can look it up and be like okay. Basically get how this goes with fencing. I looked it up. And i was like i'm never going to be. They were saying you know. Then there's the advance and the when the attacks stops the right of way. Changes and i was like mom. Never never going to be able to catch up with this at all so i just watched some and i was like they both eat very graceful to me but i do encourage everybody to check out some checkups event. He'd never watched before if you have access to them because it is sort of cool. I wanna throw at one more programming note. Which is we've mentioned a couple times the paralympics. the paralympics don't begin until august twenty fourth. They run until september fifth there also in tokyo but they don't start until a couple of weeks after the olympics are over and it's very easy to think when these things are over like well. That was the olympics. There's a whole nother olympics happening. The motto of the paralympics is and i quote united by emotion. I am so they're i am also planning to make some room in my schedule for the paralympics because by the same token i've found it so much fun to watch a little bit of archery and badminton. And all that stuff each volleyball prancing horse i love prancing horses dance to music in dressage. I'm just saying. And i think by the same token i'm excited to try some Some paralympics It is safe to say we have not and could not cover everything. I really want to hear what all of you are.

"It is amazing. And you know i so agree with what daisy said about kind of the good place comparison and how you sort of have that feeling of like there's no ethical consumption under capitalism and all that kind of way of looking at it where whatever individual decision that you make your still contributing to a system that is incredibly troubled and i think to me one of the things that i really recommend to people who want to try to get kind of a twenty thousand foot view of that there's an. Hbo documentary called the weight of gold which is specifically about the mental health challenges of olympians particularly former olympians. But it also gets heavily into how small those training stipends are. How many of these athletes are broke. How many of these athletes have essentially no financial benefit and in fact incur incredible debt participating in the olympics. They feel these enormous pressures. I will give you a content warning for issues involving suicide and other mental health things in that documentary but at the same time. It is a good view. Of how much pressure there is. You know people have been so bothered by sort of the splintering of olympic coverage and it can be so difficult to figure out how to navigate the streaming options and they change it every time and at least it's not the triple cast anymore. But what i've been using is the nbc sports app on my apple tv. And when you use that you can watch a lot of things live but you don't get. Us commentators on a lot of you'll get australian commentators. You'll get british commentators. Basically anybody who is english speaking watching taekwondo match that was called by a scottish commentator. I had never heard before is like one of the things. I really love about watching it this way. You cannot avoid participating in the machinery of it but it has helped me not participate in the most nationalist parts of the machinery of it because those commentators people in other places do not think of the olympics as the united states and everybody else the way that they will tell you the same amount.

"I think watching the games themselves as really hard because on the one hand. I love watching the olympics. They're thrilling. I love watching gymnasts because i can't even do a cartwheel to save my own life. I love watching track and field events. Because i can't run and won't ever clear a track hurdle and also you know it's just really exciting to see athletes like filipino weightlifter. Heidel india's who won the philippines first olympic gold as a pin oi. My heart is bursting with pride. And i have to shout that out that being said i'm still thinking about the larger context of what is happening. Not just in the host country but in the host city aside from how surreal it is to see how empty the stands are and to hear how empty everything is. I can't help but think about how so few people around the world are still unvaccinated. How cove it is such a big presence in the world still how the olympics seemed to be kind of trying to smooth over that fact and the castle paul for me personally to think about not just the athletes and the coaches that were putting at risk but the whole huge infrastructure of the olympic games. Themselves like all the volunteers and people who are cleaning olympic village. I'm just trying to support the athletes like daisy said while also in the back of my head still worrying about everything that's happening. Yeah and you know to me. The most worrying and kind of significant statistic was the information that was coming out in the weeks leading up to the olympics which said the great majority of people who actually live in tokyo did not want them to go forward and in fact they have had increasing obviously increasing cases in tokyo. During this time and very difficult. I think to overlook the idea that you know. Whatever anybody else thinks it's ultimately the host country and city that is going to see the greatest effects from suddenly bringing a bunch of people regardless of the fact that they don't have spectators like regular spectators..

Like i don't know if that's the right one where it's called her in like a rapid basically like They have to go to like like little. Booties on one corner. And then on the other corner and then go to the other corner and then go through. It's insane brother task it does. It looks like it looks like it. Looks like it would be a challenge on a nickelodeon kid's show jacqueline. It is weird. Are you guys watching anything right now. The beach volleyball nothing swimming and track and field opens up soon. Some curious to see that. So i bought a new tv in In for streaming only watch the olympics in my kitchen. And you haven't used it. I figured onset enough yet. But i'll get there. It'll it'll happen it'll happen. It's one of those. Tv's that looks like a picture when you're not using it. Oh right. I just saw a review of a. It looks like one of these little. Yes sound things here for i. Ki- makes a sonos speaker that looks like walmart but it's actually speaker similar. Yeah you could put it next year. Tv i watch something here. No no no. It's all hidden. So i turned forty and i was like. Oh well now. I gotta be that lady that like sits and watches the news in the morning while she drinks. Call part of who. I am now Better order. I feel like that's the stuff you always hear about my like. My dad will be on vacation like yeah. I was in his hotel room and there was no damn tv until the last day. I figured out the painting on the wall was all time play music. No speakers turns out there worst speakers the whole damn time it was. The art is in the land lamps that have speaker base. Yeah oh yeah but from have a couple of light bulbs that are also speakers that you can put in your can lights. Oh well okay. Yeah cool yeah. I'm so far behind. I don't have anything smart in the home religious to everything that i have is one thing. I don't have one thing that does two things plays music. I don't have everything. I have one. I like things that serve. I do have a lamp that you can plug your charges into. I like that a lot. That i love anything that plugs into the wall. If it has a little like usb charger on the side everything in the whole record player that also plays cd's in cassettes yearning radio genre boxing I dunno walmart. That's dvr vcr. There that makes sense. I'm talking about popcorn player with bluetooth and then it turns into a projector. That actually would be sick. That would be cool. That would be awesome real quick. I want to run a joke by you guys. There's an olympic themed. Joe okay. i'm gonna try it on the big show tomorrow own. Try with you guys i. I've been watching the olympics. And i just don't think the swimming as exciting without without michael phelps. The olympics phelps it makes no sense. It's like watching the grateful dead without without jerry garcia. You know what i'm saying. Yeah it's like. I like to watch something that you know. They're the best at what they do and also they're probably high to wording a little bit. Yes yeah yeah yeah. Yeah yeah like the sentiment. I like you did well. Yeah yeah yeah it's pretty cool but In in working in can we critique go ahead okay in working in threes. You need one more like Like token tokar right like. I think there's one more that you need Well maybe for on stage reference. That you could do. The most recent one would be car. Richardson who's not racing this year. Because she was could be one because she's also the best at what she does and probably. Hi yes so maybe that could work also like talking about things that are funny is not funny track. That does jokes. So i'm like. I love this mckinnon. Snoop dogg is what i. Here's by a joke. And i'm really. I'm not crapping on it intentionally. I just don't him being Michael phelps being hide to me isn't really a thing anymore sure sure. And here's the reason he's been on the broadcast and awesome on broadcast. And i see him in a different light. He's real bubbling. All in the high thing just kind of that was ten years ago. I feel like it was ten years ago when people did it to kind of like Out him in a tmz released the very shameful. They made it be in the back of my head. I was just like oh. I like this guy more now. He's now he's likable. He has crutches. So i think it depends on how old you are when the information came out how you remember that make after. He competed and he was completed. Or is it in between the second that was it was that early. Yeah i was between. It was before london. i believe which was twenty twelve. so is it so controversial. Because he did it or was it was illegal and he was an athlete. How's it was illegal and he'd already one. It was illegal everywhere. Yeah well hoping probably right the joke that everyone's making about shaquille richardson to it's like. I've never smoked weed been faster. Let whatever she needs some. Yeah yeah it has never sped me up if someone was like taking math or doing coke and going faster. Maybe that could be an issue. That's true talk faster even prescription because of an advantage own such interesting question. If you have a really bad sinus infection you might get prescribed Prednisone sustained of up. Yeah a little bit. Well that's another weird thing is like all these drugs that have weird side effects. I heard the other day. That accutane was invented as a form of chemotherapy. And it's like it's strong enough to kill cancer and also we can get rid of pimples. Didn't make sure no smaller. It doesn't exactly john. People invented these things. What is going on it's weird. It's like why my Seizure medicine also helps to get rid of it doesn't help it also helps new disorders which i have a little bit of mood disorder. So it's got to welcome you know. Bring bring over that side effects getting your buddy water's warm talking about a mood disorder. Ten minutes at well.

"I just talked about history with the open championship and the masters what has more history than the olympics. Like nothing so. I guess there's two sides to it as the players coolest thing ever viewer they gotta get better at like making it a little bit more important. Yeah i agree with that. It is no when you talk about that history of like the actual olympics. And i know. You're big on the ancient greeks. I can tell so. That's really that really hits. I think you made a good point. That made me goof fuck. They were doing man like humans against humans. Who's the best human like. that's how they like. Did it like sport who could throw this rock as far as possible. That is fucking just like sport and like alan mark our could be on the same level as them like because the olympic committee has granted him. A gold medal at the olympics were golfing. Olympics is set up for success where golf itself doesn't have much history in the olympics. Obviously but the olympics has the most history. So if you just build your golf tradition. Your golf olympic tradition on top of that. Then you could really be cooking. We talk about the fedex cup lot when that's going on like they just decided to just throw dollars at it and we're like this is why this is important the fedex cup doesn't have a built in history. The olympics does where golf now being added to the olympics. Hundred years from now people could associate golf with the olympics. And it's as big a deal as everything else. So what happens if they bring the olympics back which. I'm sure they just don't like georgia or something right. Like atlanta athens. And they've played the golf at fucking augusta national like imagine like the pageantry of that and how cool that'd be if they added or that's what they need. They need to add something where it's like. It's really cool to plan like everyone would want to do that. Aside from all the history that we're talking about they have to add a recurring thing where it's like the best golf course and and like so. I don't know. I'm just trying to think of how you can make it yet. Needs some pop. It just needs a. I completely agree as people that follow this game all the time. Yeah we think it needs pop then. Everybody thinks think let's say call more cowan's the gold medal this year. I think he then talks about it a lot..

"Worth what they're metal like symbolizes and to see a silver medal. The olympics as failure can mess a lot of people up in for me. I had a very great community of people around me to remind me that no that is an honor of lifetime but that can weigh in a lot of people. Do you have any regrets from your olympic experience. I do not. I think he make a lot of mistakes. I think you go through a lot of different things in life. But i don't believe in regrets because i think they shape who you are as a person as far as the olympics. If i were to joke around with one. I wish i would have taken more pictures and save those memories. I was so focused on the competition. That i tried to blur everything out. And it's hard for me to remember. I'm just going to publicly say this. I wasn't even no. But i keep me up at night. So sean when we first started dating. This is the first year of our dating. I needed a laptop for school so she was generous enough to lend me. Her laptop turns out that that was a laptop. She had all her olympic pictures on. The cloud didn't exist back then. So i lose the laptop and all of shawn's olympic pictures and memories along with that not all your memories but the tangible can i can't believe that i am a knucklehead. I guess our josh.

"Couple things fifty for fifty percents off your first order from care of today we will also linked up down below unless get back to it back to olympic specific questions when you were there. What were the media. Obligations like media obligations. We really didn't have any media obligation until we are done competing after you're done competing you kind of go through the circuit so you go through the nbc interviews. You talked about kostas. You do like the international outlets everything and usually do that within your arena. So whatever sport you're competing and as soon as you're done competing you'll go through almost like a chorale. it's like a maze of every single outlet. That has come to the olympics. In you'll just do like step by step by step interviews until you get through them. I technically don't think you're obligated to do any of them. But i do think for the athletes. It's such a huge moment where they're wanting to share their story and their triumphant tribulations and just kind of everything. They went through to get there. So it's it's a pretty big honor for an athlete to do one of anyone who's done the marshawn lynch so i don't fine. I wonder if they do have A fine schedule in place for something like that. They nfl does. I don't think so for the olympics. That what is a typical day in the life. Look like for an athlete at the olympics olympics i. It's very different. Based off of sport based off of country. Everything is kind of determined by team for us what it looked like in for us. It was a little bit different because we were minors living in the olympic village. So were you mining gold. Silver the worst joke. Yes because we were underage andro and not mining gold We were very restricted from our coaches. Just for safety measures so we pretty much stayed as a team and we would stay in our room during downtime. We'll go to practice. We go to the cafeteria with our chaperones and with our coaches. We'll go to the training hall where we get like physical therapy done or go in the hot tub or the ice or whatever and then they do have recreational activities at the olympic village. So they have like a barber shop or they have a game zone or they have like walking paths. They truly like its own little community. We would go do that every once in a while but again under the supervision of adults. It's interesting yet. It does vary by sport. We talked about this in last year video about the olympics and how the pandemic affected it but the structure of each sport federation and the olympics. Yes can can hint change from sports so the olympics work you have the international olympic committee the and then each country has their respective olympic committee. So for the united states. Usoc usoc kind of like manages for my understanding. The sport committee so for gymnastics. You have usa gymnastics. But then usa gymnastics is under the international gymnastics federation which is called the i and every sport has their own variation of that. So depending on the strictness or vibe of the coaches or the you know the organizers really proud of you for all. I don't if i explained that. Well or not but i gave it my best shot. Here's the pins. It's confusing the nfl. You've got frigging thirty two teams and one organizer. So here's the pyramid and you. You said it perfectly you just a little out of order so you have the international olympic committee. They're the bigwigs there. The top of the top under them. You have the federations of every sport so like the top of the top of international sports under them. You have the country's olympic committees so the chinese olympic committee. The russian olympic committee the uso mckinney and under them. You have the organizations for every country for every sport. Usa g usa cycling track and field and each at each level. They can make their own rules. Yes all right. We're gonna skip deliver olympic village question because people like this episode. We'll do a whole one on that But we're curious one listener asked if you get paid for your medals or do you have to pay for your medal. Which is it both technically interesting. So whether you are which can whether you are saving your eligibility for the ncwa. Which congratulations is no longer an issue in not accepting money at the olympics. It's the one place where you can safely accept money prize money of any kind in not matthew ability But at the olympics gold. Silver and bronze medals come with prize money from the international olympic committee. So yes you get paid for the medals but then that actually counts as income so you pay taxes on it well and you had an olympic ring that you had to pay for to yes. There are olympic rings that are issued by every country and for us. We had to pay them getting to the country of hosting the olympics. This year in tokyo japan. Who pays for the travel so a lot of this is specified in differentiated by federations but for the united states the us olympic committee in each individual federation will pay for your travel so usa gymnastics. Inyo see paid for us. What's your favorite olympic sport to watch. Then i would say gymnastics track and field swimming diving and that order. And how many olympics have you attended. Yes whoa competed in one. I've competed in two thousand eight. But i've attended two thousand eight two thousand ten two thousand twelve two thousand fourteen two thousand sixteen. That's it's pretty good. I think i've been one. I've been atlanta. Let's how many olympics. You've been to listening you listening What is your favorite will. Wrap it up here with a couple of questions and If people do like this episode olympics what we can do non. There's so many topics that we could cover that. We need like categorize it.
