Steelers Acquiring CB Ahkello Witherspoon From Seahawks
"The pittsburgh. Steelers acquired a cello witherspoon who was drafted by the san francisco. Forty niners spent four years with san francisco. The seattle seahawks obtained in prior to the twenty twenty one season in the steelers sent a fifth round draft. Pick to seattle for witherspoon. Okay this is another one of those moments where the steelers fan base is already reeling a little bit. they're frustrated. There's not j. watt contract. All of a sudden steph onto it zach banner anthony macfarlane gone injured reserve which means they are missing games one two and three no matter what then the steelers pull off a trade in. You probably saw breaking news trade alert the steelers make a trade for cornerback in. You're thinking okay here we go. Let's do this. And it's a keller witherspoon if you're like me and i'm being honest i'm always honest with you. That's why. I hope that. I can connect with you as my listeners. My reaction was who the heck is this guy. I never heard of this guy now. Granted i'm not a draft. Nick i did get into this draft in the twenty twenty one draft i was i studied. More prospects did more breakdowns. And i've ever had in my entire life. Mope witherspoon was drafted back in two thousand seventeen. So i definitely was not doing all that digging back then nonetheless you learn a little bit about the player after you get to know him in after the trade was announced as official by the steelers. Now you're looking at okay. What is this guy brain to the team. Well when we find out. And this is from people like jeffrey benedict. When people like kevin smith who find out that he's a an typically an outside cornerback. He's not a physical has good ball skills. Good size six to everyone always talks about. Oh you can't have a cornerback. That's under six foot. He sticks to ran a four five forty. I believe four or five. Maybe it was right around there.
Newton, Jones Star at QB for Patriots in 35-0 Rout of Eagles
"Night's preseason action in the nfl it was an absolute blowout a trouncing. The patriots had a quarterback controversy. But everybody looks good against the eagles. Campbell good mack jones. Look good jalen. Rose what you think about cams performance. I i think if you really you didn't lead a game saying fly. Eagles fly by nothing you saw in that game. I'm happy for cam newton. We talked about the patriots improving their roster this off season we wondered how he will look as a passer. I talked about them primarily being a rush t. They look like a balanced team now again. It's the preseason never overreacted at as alliance fan. I learned first hand. Because i saw rt go undefeated in the preseason go winless that same season. So i'm not going to overreact per se but i was happy for camp. Did he left last night's game with the ability to talk trash to the team. That was getting on him about being. Check down guy practice. I mean can't exactly go deep in this game but he didn't have to and cam looks good but you know who else look. Good matt jones like they seem to. They always say like two quarterbacks. You don't have one. I think the thing is just have two quarterbacks like they might just have to good quarterbacks one rookie they're going to develop and then one season better who's going to be that week one starter this to me after watching last night again. I don't wanna take too much. Wavering preseason game but after watching last night this is cam newton's job until it's not and i think cam newton is successful in. This team wins that he will continue to be the starting quarterback for this team however because the other way i can see mack jones playing this
LeBron James Reacts to Amassing Zero Votes for NBA's Best Player
"So we see this tweet from NBA Central 10 Scouts and executives voted on the best players heading into the 2021 2022 season. Yanez five votes, Kevin Durant five votes and LeBron James zero votes, and I guess this poll was done. Via ESPN, and LeBron sees it. And LeBron, of course, has to respond to it. Now let me remind you This was a few weeks back. Where the trade did go down with Russell Westbrook. And then the Lakers also acquired Carmelo Anthony LeBron James took to Twitter and you may not remember this tweet because he posted and then quickly deleted it and LeBron James said. Keep talking about my squad. Our age is the way he plays. He stays injured. We're past our time in this league, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera. Do me one favor, please. And I mean, please keep that same narrative energy. When it begins. That's all I ask. Thank you. I think he meant negative energy, but he he wrote narrative energy. Or maybe they're supposed to be a comma or period somewhere in that place. But you get the point. LeBron James, and I don't have a problem with him using this as motivation, right? Sometimes you use things as motivation. And you go. Yeah, that's not authentic. Like. Does anyone seriously believe that the Lakers don't have a shot to get to the NBA Finals this year? Especially with how I just laid it out. The Lakers just won a championship two years ago. Right? So now I'm going to say after one season later. Headed into them. It would be two seasons later. Oh, yeah. LeBron and Anthony Davis. No shot to win a championship like give me a break. And today LeBron sees this poll done by ESPN and he goes. Thank you. As if I didn't need more fuel if I didn't need more gas to fuel me. And then hashtag. Wash King.

Katherine Goldstein, Host of 'The Double Shift', on Building Audience Relationships
"Podcast thing is in many ways still treated effectively as a broadcast medium. that's like this one directional pipe yet. that the listenership feels exceptionally I think involved with the hosts like the day. They may be feel more like a. They have the relationship even though there. It's not bidirectional all the time from communications out of. I'm kind of curious like given kind of the ways in which podcasting works like. What are those relationships. Look like with your audience like how do you have. You have that relationship with them beyond the financial. Certainly there's the financial membership side of things but like what what does a relationship look like with your audience catherine so this year. I feel like we've had some great breakthrough. We've had a membership program. Since we we started as an experiment in our first season in people signed up which is amazing. But we didn't really offer we're just like can you help us like we didn't really offer much by way of benefits but so one of the ways risk deepening relationship this year. Which has been really cool. Is that actually. We've had Listeners become guests and that has been really cool because We're always looking for a Surprising unconventional stories and for example we did a whole series on the true cost of the pandemic for moms in we It was a partnership with the guardian. We did a bunch of reporting and we did a lot of call outs to. Are you know audience and Two of the five people we ended up featuring wor listeners of the show one was a waitress in mississippi who had written me a number of times with different story ideas and i thought But then you know. She told me a bit about her life. And i was like actually. I think you're right for this story that we're working on and she. We ended up doing the whole episode about her experience with losing her job and her mental health struggles in getting addicted all these things that like but she very much came to us because she was already in our listener community in the other one was a young mom who was a new orleans nightclub worker and we talked about her career panic struggles and you know what what happened. We ended up featuring on the show as well so also when people hear that listeners are coming from the show. I feel like that they hear that a guest that they have curtis thirty minute episode within their emotionally vested in were listener who reached out that makes them feel like it's more of a two way street and that there is more potential for
Warriors Reject Sixers’ Steep Asking Price for Ben Simmons
"Sixers are asking the Warriors per keep pumping, who covers the sixties for The Philadelphia Inquirer for Andrew Wiggins, James Wiseman, the seventh pick in tonight's draft, the 14th pick in tonight's draft. And to future first round picks. So four first round picks. Wiggins and Wiseman. Basically That's six first round picks if you think about it. 7 14 to future. Wiggins was an early first round pick, and James Wiseman was just the second pick in the draft. So if you want to say, because Wiggins played in the league for a little bit hit, and he's kind of been underwhelming. Wise, but at least they're still has that potential. Even after his first season, it's basically Wiggins And five first round picks for Ben Simmons. If I'm the Golden State warriors. I'm glad they said no. And I don't think that price is going to be met for Ben Simmons.
Cleveland Baseball Manager Explains Changing Team Name to Guardians
"The team has been known as the Indians since nineteen fifteen will be called the guardians effective at the end of the twenty twenty one season the organization spent most of the past year whittling down a list of potential names that number twelve hundred just over a month ago Indians manager Terry Francona says the name change makes a lot of sense it's about people to step outside of your own skin and think about other people that may have a different color skin and what they're thinking and we're trying to be extremely respectful and I'm really proud of organization the team's incoming logo font will be similar to the current style as well the look on the new uniforms the road units with Cleveland on the front will appear identical to the old ones although there will be a new look to the sea on the caps I'm Dave Ferrie
"When the olympics start will be the most talented team in tokyo. Hands down no question. Most talented team in tokyo with the roster that they have but this is like a five alarm fire right now howard. This loss to nigeria. I don't care if they win the rest of these pre olympic games which will take place through next sunday. This has to make you nervous if you're a fan of the team because not only is it this. The loss to nigeria. But you go back two years ago at the world championships where you had a us team. That was good. Didn't have probably better team now than they were back in two thousand nineteen but all nba players. They finished seventh. They've been seventh at the world championships. You have the seventh-place finish the loss of nigeria. How concerned are you howard beck about. Usa basketball. It's just an exhibition game. Chris oh no no. It's not just an exhibition game. Stop this team was thrown together over the last however many weeks they had what like three practices. I think i'll ever. Us team is thrown together. What are you talking about. There's no team. There's no no mid season practices for usa basketball. No but the nigerian team has been practicing. What i'm saying is some of the play in the nba though wants win the nba nba. A few of them play in the nba but that team has had time together more so than the team. Sorry brown coaching. that team. That i missed was that a facsimile of mike brown on the bench all season long. What what are we talking about. The warriors have been out for like two months kris k. Okay so two months. that's what matters. That's that's the number three three practices. Also they're still missing. I believe at least three guys because they're playing in the finals right now. Booker middleton chris paul get it. Yes not chris. Ball's not playing a holiday with the the what holland is your holiday. Those those guys will matter especially given that middleton and holiday are to the better perimeter defenders that that team. Usa has and if you look at the rest of team usa's roster. I don't see a ton of great defenders. There there are a few. I think those three guys by the way are going to be exhausted by the time they get to. They may well be. They may will be so. We're going to judge them. Judging when their whole judge when the games matter to strange to me like we don't judge nba teams based on the preseason but we judge team usa based on these exhibition games. That they do going into international competition. I feel like it's thirty. One point favorites. Why why is there betting line on a freaking exhibition better training but a little league baseball. Now country degenerates damn right. I didn't mean chris i'm with. Let's go monday. Nigeria money line. I just. I can't get too excited about this. If they lose the rest of the exhibitions does that mean something. Yeah that might be alarming if they're if they're still struggling to find some cohesion. That could be alarming. But i mean the talent is obviously their talent alone doesn't win on the international stage in style of game is different team ball matters. Shooting matters like yeah. There's a bunch of budget stuff that comes into play. But i i find the panic over this loss or at least the outcry to be a little bit much. So you don't take into account the seventh-place finish in two thousand nineteen. I mean that to me. It's the it's not just as game. The totality of it right. Like and i don't know howard like so in the early two thousands the world kind of caught up to the us ninety to ninety six thousand us. Gold maps then comes the two thousand two world championships in indianapolis and that's seven. The place finish was one of the worst worst outcomes in at least recent usa history. They got it together after that. They hired jerry colangelo. They bringing mike chef ski. They get their act together. Two thousand six two thousand eight then. They run off. Three consecutive years are three consecutive cycles of gold. Medals is argon. Made that like the world's caught up again that somewhere along the way and the last four or five years. The rest of the world has once again caught up usa basketball. I'm trying to understand this. I mean that's close games in those olympics cycles. No question about it. But i can't imagine the oh eight. Twelve or sixteen team losing nigeria. I can't exhibition or otherwise. I can't see it happening. No team and the and the one that followed it were built around like lebron koby. Carmelo enjoying wait. I mean that that groups at another level like as good as this group is that we're seeing right now as talented as they are after k. D. tatum's really good damian. Lillard is great. I mean come arbit- tatum. Bill lillard auto bio levin. Draymond dream ends up there in years but one has won some things. Jeremy grant jeremy grant zach living out of like. These are guys who have done anything in the nba yet. But they're all stars most they're they're also but are they to level of lebron kobe now but do you think is that what you're saying then is that what you're saying to be at the level you need to have like i'm saying the crop to win. I'm saying that if we're going to start comparing the twenty twenty one team to the twenty eight a two thousand eight two thousand twelve teams there is. There is not an equivalent right now. Lebron kobe laurent cobaine weight. And plus what we what. We called olympic. Mellow like carmelo. Didn't have the success in the nba. That some of his teammates did but carmelo in terms of talent level and certainly has resume like that group was at a whole other level. That group is a different level than jason. Tatum bam outta bios. Zach levine. Okay so not saying that you necessarily should have to have that level of time firepower to win an exhibition game against nigeria. Or anybody else. But i am saying comparing usa to itself different iterations of team usa. This one is not that one. This is not as dominant group as the ones we saw in eight and two thousand twelve. It just isn't what do you do like. What's the solution here. Like i mean i jerry. Colangelo deserves an enormous amount of credit for rebuilding that program when it was at. Its nadir mitra chefs. He comes in enormous amount of credit for what they did. But as we sit here in twenty twenty one like it's almost to me howard like the usa basketball rebuilding. The program became cool. Like lebron wanted to do it. Chris paul like dwayne wade. These guys wanted to do it and then they did it. And i think playing for usa basketball didn't become quite as cool as it was fifteen years ago. Like is that what has to happen like does not need to have like a fifth place finish in tokyo for all of a sudden the next generation of a-list stars wherever that may be in two thousand twenty four to come back into the mix and is that the only way this team can win. I mean i think we need to pay attention to the overall context like obviously one. These olympics were supposed to happen a year ago. They're delayed a year because of covid got durant out of it though like that right. It's questionable whether these the olympic should be happening at all still but along the way because of these back to back brutal seasons and everything else like team. Usa doesn't have james harden right now. Doesn't have anthony davis because of the injury doesn't have steph curry doesn't have kyrie irving doesn't have lebron kawai again. If your argument is that the second or third tier it sounds like sounds like insulting. Somehow but if you're saying that the next wave believe after those guys should still be good enough to dominate on the world stage. Maybe but if the point is that the team as best are they still. Are they still able to win. Gold fairly easily. Your probably but a bunch of them aren't on this team right now because of injuries and just the stress of the last year or two so this this is not necessarily representative of the best of the best right now. It just isn't and yes. They should still be good enough to win. Yes the world has caught up to some extent. No the the group that at nigeria's put it put out there last week. Does not leap off the page improbably. Us should've still want it. But again i exhibition game after like three practices. Let's see what happens with the rest of this. This schedule out brought mellow back. I mean he's not what he was four years ago. Eight years ago twelve years ago but the guy knows how to play international basketball. He might have sat. maybe. I guess. I didn't really. I assume that he just want to keep. He didn't kind of like four formerly re retire from the olympics. But it'd be pretty much says like i'm done like lebron kinda did to get talked into it. I feel like. I don't know if i was if i was the usa team would try really hard to get carmelo blake because his style. Whatever it is to the nba is perfect for the national basketball. He's a really good or national basketball player. On this subject damian lillard. He spoke for the first time. Since the hiring of chauncey billips. Only listen to what little had to say about his future in portland. I'm prepared to go in and do my job every year. Like hopefully we make strides over direction and could become a better team a new coach notice. That's where i am. What soured it sounds like. Lillard is at least nominally on board with going back to the blazers. But if i'm a team out there with assets. I don't listen to that response and say well it's over damian. Lillard is back on the same page with the portland trailblazers. If i'm a team with assets i hold onto those assets because it feels to me like the blazers might be one like sixteen to start from blowing that whole thing up with louis mccollum on the way out the door so get the sense now. That seems more likely than not that damian lillard at blazers training camp. He's in ablaze uniform. He starts the season with the portland trailblazers. But if it doesn't work with chauncey billips early and you get close that trade deadline. It wouldn't surprise me at all to see portland decide. Look we've got a. We've got to do something here and opened the door for damian lillard trade. What do you think. I think that nothing has changed. I think that his remarks last week because he sounded a little bit lukewarm. Or just you know you hear one of two things. Well you want to hear one thing if you're a portland trail blazers fan or if you're just looking for any indication that lillard is all in your you want to hear him say listen. I know things are rough right now. But i'm all in you know this is. This is where. I want to be you to repeat all the usual talking points that you hear from players in his position and that we've heard from bradley beal that we used to hear from james harden houston. Which is a win in phil in city fill in the blank with the city. I want to win here. I don't wanna go somewhere else. You know we're going to get this right blah blah. He didn't go down the usual list. And so i think it left open. Some interpretation but getting has changed like the disappointment was clear when the season ended. Some of the things have happened since including obviously the the the train wreck away they went about the the coaching search and lillard. Being caught in the crossfire. There at feeling heat from fans about chauncey billips being selected and so. I don't think we should expect he's going to be rah. Rah right now The trailblazers have a lot of work to do. But we also have not even hit the summer yet. Like there's the draft hasn't happened yet. Free agency hasn't happened yet. There's there's a lot of work to be done. And i think if you're damian lillard which you're probably doing is internally saying here's what i need to see happen externally saying you know what let's let's wait and see i mean you see. He can't he can't say publicly the same things that he's telling say neal o'shea right about what the the state of the roster i i would think that there are some very impassioned debates or discussions being held behind closed doors about what they need to get this thing right and if they can't get it right the he might shift is his stance about staying there long term. But that hasn't happened yet that we know of. What do you think the most interesting potential conversation is amongst players over these next four weeks like i'm kind of curious what jason tatum bradley beal talk about. Tatum and beal close friends dating back to their highschool days both went to the same high school bill with something of a mentor to jason. Tatum actually got him involved with his trainer. Drew hanlin which helped. Tatum elevate his his personal skills and they've talked about how happy they are to be playing together. Played the all star game together for the first time beal last year of his contract. Like you know we've seen these conversations yield real tangible conversation. You'd like to be a fly on the wall on for any of these guys in the next couple of weeks. Yeah i mean look we. We have a history now going back over a decade. If we're to believe that the that the heels were formed in part through team usa activities. You know which is true which is true. That's that's yielded an extra things guy. You know guys who you mentioned. Tatum and bill because they were already friends but guys also become friends through this experience right and then they start getting the ideas about playing together. Like oh hey. This is a lot of fun. Let's do this again in the nba. So there's i'm i'm sure some of that is is happening. It always does. Who else in that group. I mean man. If any of these guys that'd be trying to recruit bam out a bio but he's too early in his in his contract with miami to pry him loose from there And you know the heater still a pretty potent team but you know jimmy butler is up there in miles and outta bios future won't necessarily be there forever. That's the way it goes in the nba. I think tatum has the potential to be like the biggest recruiter. They're like he's about to start the first year of his max level extension. He can recruit bill. But like you can also does damian lillard like. It's great to play in boston. I love it here. Answer some questions of my have a playing on the east coast for the first time. Like i think data might be boston's best asset at this point. Yeah again some of this comes down to bradley. Beal's coming up to that point where he has the leverage to task out because of his contract lillard under contract for several more years and so he's not in that position. So what if it says. Like i need to go like. I don't foresee the blazers being no finish your contract. Just don't see it. i think right. And they would work with him on a deal to sure but directing it is harder so beal can use the leverage of his free agency to say well if you send me to team x. I'm not gonna resign there. Which then blows up that deal and he can direct himself to the team he really wants to be at lillard would have a harder time to doing that. Because he doesn't have free agency looming two to play that card. Yeah well i encourage any reporter. That's in tokyo tatum. Beal and lillard talking to each other. Just take a picture and then let the internet go wild crazy because it will unquestionably last thing for you. Howard the breaking news. This week in the coaching ranks. Is that jamal moseley is headed to orlando moseley of course last with dallas. A really well respected assistant coach there. Who was a candidate for that. Maverick job before. It went to jason kidd my immediate reaction to that higher howard beyond i think being an excellent choice for orlando is that we're gonna look at at moseley and jason kidd on parallel tracks. The next couple of years moseley. There was a strong case to be made that he should have been elevated to that head. Coaching job he'd been considered for other head coaching jobs. Before most recently in new york he had by all accounts a great relationship with luka doncic i understand bringing kit in he's got a history with dallas and as riccar lau said publicly having a player that played the game like kid and having a player that plays the game like don-shik make some sense to pair those two guys together. But there's always going to be as i watched these two situations unfold. I'm gonna wonder you know. Did the mavericks make the right choice. Leading jamaa moseley go and bringing jason kidd in and there's so many variables in this the first being at orlando's in step one or maybe even steps zero of a massive rebuild right there in the negatives right now. I think there's still maybe more fat to trim on that roster before they really bottom out. Yeah and you know you talk about trying to build around. You know markelle foltz. And and jonathan isaac jonathan isaac for so long. They're getting hurt and he's a great player but they've loved writing in a weird way john stays healthy. He's still more of a complementary store right like he's he's a potentially defensive player of the year at some point. He's not a guy who you're building an offense around though and marquel foltz okay. He he got himself back on track in orlando. He has a career now where he didn't have one but he's not a foundational building block. Come on like that's crazy so the roster doesn't have much talent jamal. Moseley's is coming into a situation. Which a lot of first time head coach is committed to which is all right. There's a lot of work to do so You're gonna have to do a lot of development. You're going to have to take a lotta lumps in the win loss column. It's gonna be rough going for the first year or two or maybe three. Let's see how they can get things going. But you know as it has been a certain other like kenny. Atkinson came to look a completely hopeless situation in brooklyn but was known as development coach in atlanta. And sure enough. Everybody who went there. Joe harris spencer. Dinwiddie jared allen versus lower. First round picks. Guys who were you know whether they were reclamation projects whether they were low picks everybody seems to get better the second they went to brooklyn and play kenny atkinson and his staff congenial. Moseley have the kind of effect in orlando can the front office. Get him to kind of guys. That will thrive in that in that kind of environment and carve out careers from cells and carbon identities. Jamal moseley has a lot going for him. And we've heard like many great things about it but we often hear great things about assistant coaches who don't end up panning out so i always. We have to caution ourselves on these things. Because i thought. Brian shaw was gonna be a great head coach and he was. Everybody loved him all the players sung as praises when he was associate head coach under frank. Vogel indiana he goes to denver probably just the wrong guy at the wrong time but he hasn't had another shot since then but that went really badly. Brett brown was really great in in some respects for the for the early years of the process and then suddenly. It seemed like they'd hit some sort of ceiling. Eager kokoschka of had been talked about for years is a great assistant. Coach didn't work out. Swells head coach in phoenix. David dale bumpy ride in memphis and then disastrous in new york. We just don't know like luke walton. Another example like there are plenty of coaches who as their when their assistance. We hear and see the best of them and then you know some of them be go on it and have great success coaches. I mean tyler has been fantastic. Mike malone has been fantastic money williams. Nick nurse dwayne casey a lotta longtime assistance. Get their shot and then you know it. It works out in a dozen. It's all contextual. It's all just the opportunity you have the thing for dallas is. They went with a guy who has experienced jason kit. That experience was not necessarily good experience. Like i think most people around the would look at what he did in milwaukee in brooklyn and say. I'm going to steer clear. Maybe you'd rather have the the unproven. Jamal moseley versus the somewhat proven jason kidd but. I don't think we'll know what the right choice was there for a while yet. Because it's it's gonna take some time before we can evaluate moseley as head coach. I maybe jason kidd learned something in two years as an assistant. I mean that happens. You know working with lebron for entire for two entire seasons working under frank vogel maybe picked up some things that'll be useful to him as a head coach. Moseley to me. The key is giving him time. Like you've got to be committed to moseley for a minimum. I think of three years and more likely five years. And then you see what you have in head coach. You mentioned gore. I mean it's worked out for phoenix. Absolutely but i do think he got hosed out there i mean he only had one year on the job and that year was without deandra aiden chris. Paul had devon booker of course but that was not a good team that he was coaching. There i gotta get moses the because you want to see what the guy can do when you put that team in a position to win a great example to me is james breglio in charlotte. I mean berea. Was one of those guys assistant coach elevated to head coaching position in charlotte. Not great first couple of years there but when he was given players and chance to win he did pretty well. I mean up until lamelo ball went out the horns were really good team and i think they will be a good team. Going forward in part because of the borrego is a pretty good coach. I want to see this magic team. Invest heavily in jamal. The you're the guy developed these guys and we'll keep you around no matter what the won loss record says until you get a chance to win then you judge like brett brown six or seven days since brett brown left but i can see the for letting go of brett brown. I mean they had a talented team and to a degree the underachieved. But you've got to let the coach get a roster on that level before you really make any decisions about whether they can coach. Yeah well and that's the thing about. This is what set up says apart. I think the good organizations from the bad ones is that you you decide when you choose a guy. Especially if he's a longtime assistant not a guy with head coaching experience. And you've said we believe in this guy. This is somebody who's got a great trekker record as an assistant. We're going to first opportunity. It's your obligation to when you say investment. Yeah it's time investment. It's a give them all the tools to succeed. Give him the time to succeed. You've decided you believe in him. So stand behind that have the conviction to stand behind that and take some bumps along the way you know maybe maybe memphis and or the knicks should have stuck with david physed longer. You know we had heard nothing but great things about fiscal coming out of miami. Initially we may yet you know. Find out that he. He can be great head coach in the right situation. Maybe those worth rights situations. He might be one of those guys though. I love physios and assist one of those guys. Though the just the temperament is always important. Like the government like memphis yet. Some battles with market assault didn't work out your plus new york. You just might be one of those guys that doesn't have the right temperament to be is based on what we've seen a memphis in new york might be better suited for these ranks but if he succeeds in l. a. I think he'll get another chance right. Maybe i think the point being though that if you as an organization have identified a guy instead he we believe in him then. Okay then believe in him. Stick with them and make sure you've given them enough tools to succeed Is it a pulling the plug at the first sign of of struggle and that's what happens in the nba. too often. is that seems panic. You know the fans turn. There's some minor flare up. Oh the coach and player got into it. Whatever it may good teams that can happen on as well. And it's it's just. It's the way franchises. React so you have to know whether or not the guy is is is right and then stick with them. And so yeah. Let's jomo's should get a nice long here. She got a ton of latitude in orlando given where they are as an organization given the state of that roster. Yeah i agree. Howard enjoy milwaukee looking forward to hearing the conversation with the lazarus on friday. You can check podcast. Right here on the crossover feet again. Make sure you listen to howard's interview. Spencer dinwiddie from last week. It was really really strong. Enjoy -joy the mid west our. We'll talk when you're back on the northeast always a pleasure. My friend the newest player in the pre nba basketball landscape is overtime. Elite elite will begin playing sometime in the fall. And we'll be headlined by some of the top now. Former high school players in the country players would be paid minimum one hundred thousand dollars with some making north of that and have access to high level facilities training as well as educational programs to help. Get a better grasp on that. I'm joined by brandon williams the head of basketball operations for overtime. Elite and kevin ollie the former. Nba guard uconn. Coach was the head coach and director of player development bread. And i want to start here with you. Just kind of give me the ten thousand foot view overtime elite. What are the objectives. What what what was behind the formation of this league. I think any of us. Chris who've been around for a long time i've actually seen Sort of the downside of young players who entered into professional ranks to this point. It's been the nba Who are not ready. And so what does that mean you know not not ready to form and be stars or is it just not ready to be great teammates or is it not ready to be good partners. is sort of all that you know the idea that the work day is much longer than they know. And that there's more responsibility to be in a professional athlete The responsibilities to families and communities we just have to do a better job preparing them and here was an opportunity to be part of a program that wanted to address all that. It's not just about being a good player. It's like we wanna address the whole athlete. Hope so on. Three levels were hitting basketball. Easiest thing understand. I think businesses in our world is education And then there's brand you know. These young people now are moving at a speed that we aren't as older folks and they want to build things An earlier age particularly off the court so building a brand is important something that can last well beyond their tread on tire so we're hitting it in basketball business brand. That's that's that's really thirty thousand foot view. Kevin what attracted you to this job. Just like his dad is the whole person being able coach them from a mind body and soul Experience and understanding the mindfulness athlete I've seen it from a pro level. Got up tune into play thirteen years with twelve different teams so i understand like the different trials and tribulations you go through with a player not saying that these players are gonna go through that but is getting them more prepared if they do come into some certain situations where it's not typically going the right way. How can they manage that situation. So what they do today can echo into tomorrow and having the ability to kana paint on a black blank. Canvas is what a really attracted to me to to this you know. Ot league program we can take the player really shape the curriculum you not with teaching them about subjects. But we're really teaching them about themselves as well from media training From mental health issues. All the different things that come involved because we all know chris is stress. You know from success is a lot of pressures is a lot of people pulling at you. It's a lot of people won't certain things. But how do you deal with that from a player's standpoint where you can play when you get on the basketball court and half clear and not be caught up in the distractions of off the court issues. Um as desks desks were really kind of vocal. Spirit to give back in it and how these kids you know. Have these players be available at the moment of truth to make the right decisions and that was very important to me. Kevin as you mentioned you played in the nba brand. You played in the nba. As well i wanna ask both of you guys and kevin. I'll start with you like if this was available to you as sixteen. seventeen year. Old looking back. Would you have founded attractive with a definitely founded attractive You know i kind of thought the box anyway. I was from chris. Shaw from from from south central and i chose connecticut. So you places that. I didn't even know nothing about growing up. You always thought out the box and never wanted to go down a path that everybody was going down So i was always curious. And i think that's how my mom especially my mom. My dad raised me. So i definitely been curious of this situation. No no speaking now without you know took it. I'm not sure. But i think it really gave me another option to look at it and this is what we're trying to do not saying that the ncaa is wrong overtime. Leaders wrong or right. It's not about that. It's about if you really care about the student. Athletes you give them as much options as possible. And i think this gives the lee student athlete. Another option and i think you know it's a very Great option for them to have and if they choose overtime league we're going to give our whole heart to make sure they're developed on and off the basketball court chris i- jumping after coach It would have been interesting. Chris but i certainly would not have been a candidate i would. Let's just get that right. What what things that's important. We sit down going through just grassroots community and we spent months just talking to people educating about. You know what we're about who we are. Each of us has a reputation in some other space. Not here The this program isn't for everybody is not the right fit for everybody. We are cherry picking and a lot of ways. These are players that feel like they are destined for professional basketball. There are a lot of sixteen year olds. That don't know that yet and their parents aren't convinced that yet in people that support them. Don't don't feel that confidence yet. They may be another year away or two years away but this is not. This is not the right path for everyone. Twenty four athletes roughly twelve per class. We're looking at juniors and seniors and the truth is at this age. What was really funny about scouting them is everybody's skinny and like a lanky and underdeveloped and still has like a mountain of upside to you know to to get through before you can really see who they're going to be but you know if you have a young player like brand williams who's just dreaming of being an nba player but does not much certainty. That's even realistic We gotta be very careful about this approach In taking because there there are risks but for those that that have already established in this deke. They've established a day of separated from their class. You know jaylen. Lewis has an example the most recent example. He's he's he's elevated in separate. The draft isn't tomorrow though so there's still a lot of work to do but he's already in front running physician and it gives everyone low confidence that this is the kind of investment and the kind of pet that would make a ton of sense for players like that. Let me follow up on that brandon. Because you're you're entering. What suddenly become a fairly crowded space in terms of leagues like this. You know the g. league ignite is one season in but they've had a measure of success. We've seen jalen green probably a top pick. Jonathan kamenga top five or six. Then you have the ncw with this. Recent ruling allowing top players to make money off their name image and likeness. How does how does the elite separate itself from that group. Why think i is. We start a little bit sooner so the g. league zone a great job with what we call it a year the prep year that year. That a recent graduates would be going to college and they've already been hacking the system you know going to italy or china So so there's a market for those players and we want an alternative to college for for for us though. Our players are seeking an alternative to high school so we are a school but we think about the resources that were bringing to the table first of which being an nba like environment You know start coach. Ali coach lehto in a robust set of staff. I mean scouting staff a high performance staff administrative team. Our goal was to simulate an nba organization for for young athletes at sixteen seventeen eighteen. Th there there is no other environment. Like that. And i think the big way that we separate with high school athletes Is that both domestically and internationally. We're able to put twenty four of them together in a building. So what we're selling is the best competition for these guys starts at home. I mean every day in line coaches don't minister drills administer competition aspects of practice and getting ready for games but when you look to the right and left and i noticed as a player. There's no weak link. I mean everywhere you look. There's somebody that's doing what you're doing and possibly doing more. Because they they are not just dreamed about the into the league or to the high level. They're on their way there That's where we've been able to. I think create a little separation from others that have tried or looked at something. Like this kevin. How do you approach this job. Do you do it in a similar mindset and you had at uconn where you have young players you also you know yukon. You had to keep them academically eligible you to follow that pretty closely. I mean is there is it a similar mindset or do you take a different tact. I think you just let it be you know. Similar is not. It's just whatever comes you say yes to it and you cultivate hope from it I never coached high school players. They was always you know graduated from high school. And now they're freshman's This situation is a little different in in was recruiting for two to three years. This situation is a little different. But you know from me. Chris i love the unknown about it. And that's the space i live in. Not just wanna make sure that. I have the space incorporate something in these players that they can just think about it can build from a have a foundation so when they make the transition they have every tool in the toolbox to say okay. Oh that's a problem Assess it let me be able to correct it. Let me obsessed. Let me be aware of it and i think that's the difference between you know coaching a high school kid in in the college. Kid i mean you get able to mold them a little bit better and then you have to understand where they at. Now you know back then. I didn't have social media. We didn't have social media now. These kids these players are building their brand a little bit earlier and now you just meet them where they are. And i can't wait to get them up on campus get them up until atlanta just continue to build a great relationship. Welcome spend time with the one on one in. This situation is going to provide us to do a lot more skill development that i didn't have a really good opportunity and it had not one say good opportunity. I didn't have the best opportunity. Because there's so many things we own a row recruiting You own a row fundraising these different things. Brandon's taken care of in. Dan porter is taken care of. I can just really coach the player and work on his skill development on and off the basketball court. So it's really given me my own lane. So i can really perform my job. Mama job is really breaking down and relationships it starts. Relationship is start with trust. Stars will hold is spending time with the the young student athletes on and off the basketball court and pushed them to greatness and the competition is not on. our side of competition is with him. You know can you beat your previous best bestself. Can you be better than today you know. Can you be better tomorrow than you were date. And that's what i'm coaching. And that's what i love to do. And i think we're going to have some great young man as open as biden has going to be vulnerable going to try to reach for the sky. In the sky is going to be ob- you is not going to be limits. I can't wait to get up to atlanta. We've been having some many camps. Chris has been wonderful to get back on the court with the guys. And i'm looking forward to the next mini camp and dan looking forward to getting them up to atlanta. So we really can go to work. You know when. I was was talking to brian. shaw a couple of months ago. Kevin about how he was coaching. The ignite you know it was a lot of pro stop. He was trying to bring to that team. Are you taking that same. Approach you trying to coach them like their nba players or something different. No it's nothing different is just. I'm building pro. Habits in every situation is going to be different. Chris this is going to be some guys. Come in you know. Say for instance like a. John montero will we got him and he you know is a little bit more advanced than some other players because he's been a pro- already and then it's going to be another situation where we gotta talented guy might not be able to get quick but these opportunities we can go at our own pace we can sit down and talk to them but we're really teaching and building pro habits and those habits is going to translate over to them being great pros when that opportunity come invest in the nba are the euro league so every day you know we are building like a practice plan like more of a college practice plan nba practice bandwidth doing drills. That i got from my numerous stops in the nba. You know we're doing sets in the nba. Then we gotta understand that sixteen years old as well you know and maybe sometimes you gotta you know kinda doubt it down a little bit. But i'm gonna let com. I'm going to let that go. i'm not going to focus on one of it. I'm not gonna say oh. We're doing this process. Each and every day every day is different. And that's what i love about the unknown. And i'm gonna treat it like that and we just gonna continue to bill because i think we got great mas and organization that really want to coach the whole person. And that's what i'm really excited about. You decided to upgrade your outdoor deck. So you ordered the essentials. Power washer said a patio chairs and a shiny new grill. And you use your bank of america. Customized cash rewards credit card choosing to earn three percent cashback online shopping and up to five point. Two five percent preferred rewards member which you put toward your most essential deck addition a bird feeder of yours at bank of america dot com slash more rewarding copyright two thousand twenty one bank of america corporation support for this podcast comes from invent together according to studies less than thirteen percent of all inventors who hold a us patent are women black and hispanic college graduates patent at half the rate of their white counterparts. But we can fix that by increasing participation innovation and patenting by underrepresented groups. It would quadruple. The number of american inventors and increase annual gdp by almost one trillion dollars. Invent together is a coalition of organizations companies. Universities and concerned citizens committed to ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to invent and patent because the more diverse. The american patent system gets the stronger and more successful. our nation will become. What can you do to help. Divers inventors patent and unleash economic opportunity. Find out at invent together dot org learn more and take action today brandon not to continue to compare this team to the ignite but when i talked to sharieff abderrahim about that i mean. I had asked him about the sustainability of that team. Given how much. Money was being poured in to pay some of the players. And he bobbed and weaved floyd mayweather trying to answer that question. Because it's it's hard to commit to it without say a television contract more sponsorships and things like that when you can you speak to kind of the sustainability of this because we've seen startups with an influx of cash. Get get in big the first year. But then peter out. I mean what needs to happen. Four overtime elite to become a long term successful program while has got to answers. I think you know a concept. I mean we're we're selling on the ability to develop young players and have a more more pro ready right. So this is. This is the path we are offering basketball development. Call it professional Business development And we are also like leveraging. What is an incredible media platform that again. The things that we like to call a distinguishing factors. That's a huge one. So not to bob and weave one. We gotta be good ass. You know that. That's how have long deputy spurs the spurs. They were good for really long time. And so we've got the that there were good at this note. No pressure on kale right The the the second piece though is you know and this comes from my my time in the nba. It just wasn't that long ago where it out of chicago. Pre-draft combine interview. If i said. I wanna build my brand. Everybody in the room was like smirking and like you know what. What are we talking about like. It's about basketball basketball basketball And you know if you are young team developing and not winning a lot of games truth is you can't sell just basketball because your basketball isn't great you got to sell personalities and stories in that there's something that people can invest in in fall in love with other than like the final score like otherwise. The sixers had no chance right any any development team yet to buy into a story and for us. I think we have a chance to create stories but we get a chance to show those stories because we have a platform. So it's it doesn't take much. I mean i'm not a social media guru. But when i got recruited for this job haven't been around the block a little bit certainly from an nba perspective. I heard a couple of things. I really got my attention. One was fifty million followers That's eyeballs and we all know that that Business follows the eyeballs in whatever in whatever respect. The other was which is unfair. Because i think that number changes month over month but it started at one point four and not set maybe one point eight or one point nine billion with a b. billion views of content a month that overtime in some ways has found a way to the heart. The mind of young people It is being communicated and solid as you know the generation z. sort media and content engine We are doing an amazing thing here which is developing young talent in a pure way that we want to make sure that they are prepared. Top to bottom to do well on the court to do well and communities to do well in business but then there's this other thing which is they want to be known like. No player wants to play in an empty building. Everybody wants to play where it matters. They wanna play. When nick can rock and like the building and just like recognizing their talent. We're just artists. And one thing that is kind of showcase. By one event that that overtime overtime the media company producing s called. You see it on youtube to. Is that over. Hundred million people watched that. I mean that that's not an insignificant number that players that are going to play overtime. Lee will have the opportunity to be known The the opportunity of bring brick big brands to the table and support this platform If not already indicated by the kinds of investors that that have shown interest but the brands that are coming to the table our sustainability is going to be showing value delivering value to not just the athletes but to overtime visibility. I would imagine great for them but can you monetize it. Can you make it so this league is in the black or does it need to be in the black every year. Well my the good news is as a basketball man. No different than a different than the is Get a budget. My job is to be fishing and and spend wisely. I i'm not. I'm not asked to sell tickets or generate revenue that's for a tremendous And in successful a business operations Our job is to make sure that what we are delivering is high is a high level product That you see the growth and development of our young players. What's there recruited. We gotta make them better. They need to be able to perform and probably the best testament of our success is going to be our nba. Gm voting with this pick right but with a coach saying like they did a nice job. This guy was. Well coached testament to takeo and the rest of the coaching staff. That if we're doing that will prove successful. Because guess what the next crop of recruits when we're in the gym like we're not chasing them. There's sort of meeting us at at minimum half way. We need to keep bringing high level taliban and developing talent to prove successful and i have a tremendous set of partners across academics and across content media. That will will do their part to elevate our business. Can you expecting to tap into some of your. nba relationships. I mean as you mentioned thirteen teams in twelve seasons. You've made a lot of friends over the years. We're going to see like san preston sitting in the crowd for your practices as a whole so sam and so many gyms that i know you know Kevin durant and all these guys are destinies in overtime. Just having them be around. We had our first minicamp. Ray allen showed up and not only showed up. He brought his son to work out with guys. Just it was just amazing. does just see how the branches that we can continue to pull up on and they continue to pull on us and be a partnership in. This thing is going to be great. Are you expecting to have kind of drop ins. Durant's involved with the league. You expecting these guys. Just be around. Which i would imagine would be both a resource for you but also an attractive quality to this league definitely. Definitely we going to build a place where it's going to be hopefully a development premier development destination for everybody and you know hopefully katie can come out and work out with guys and russell westbrook and james harden and all these guys that we know and i know i had opportunity to be evolved. Then it's kinda beat a veteran guys We want them to be around. Because it's not. Just me sean. It's also watching tape like these are the different drills and look how k. d. and look how chris paul is using the pick and rolls and now they're showing up that's a that's a big big bang for us with us growing these young talented student athletes To get them inspired to the next level and they're doing a great job done only gonna do. I coached him. Chris a coach me on a day to day basis. I'm open to that and we just really want to have a love affair with guys and and the end of the day chris. We want appease the basketball guys. We wanna play the right way. We want to share a basketball. We wanna run. We wanna have fun. We want how to join the game but it can't just be me me me. It has to be weak. And i'm wanting to teach guys how to be involved in any system they get drafted about. They can be a part of a productive system and be a productive partner in in the community as well no matter what city they when they arrive to the nba brandon. Before let you go. What schedule gonna look like i mean is this team playing. Just walk me through kind of what these kids are getting into. And what kind of schedule you gonna be able to put together so schedule that that is really interesting for everybody. And i wanna try to illuminate. But i've got to be careful we are still contracting with some teams But for the audience the think about it in buckets. We're gonna play independent prep schools. That's going to be a significant part of our schedule. We are a high school so we are looking to schedule. Some of the top independence that you would typically no to have a national schedule can travel that have the ability to be mobile. We're scheduling home and away with with With those folks and it looks like net set as an example It looks like you know. Folks that are playing for a national title Arizona florida california. So it'll be a widespread travel schedule for us. We're also looking at European competition so think about junior euroleague as an example. Some of the best clubs the Insects as an example Where we can get a collection of sixteen to nineteen year old elite talent to compete against us. And then as i mentioned earlier on the show we really feel like the best competition is gonna come internally and that's where our league play Comes into effect so we are looking at our group of twenty four as three teams of eight. There will be standings you'll be able to track will compete against each other. That'll be a significant part of our schedule as well. We don't want to overstep our guys one of the things. We really wanna correct leading science. Guide us here. is is minimized the wear and tear. Nobody's while still developing and preparing for a professional level place so a schedule of maybe thirty five. To forty games is our target. We started september Training camp will will begin Play by mid august. We'll be done by by Late march is how we see our schedule shaping up i'm looking forward to it brennan kevin. It's a really interesting concept and hope you guys have a lot of success with an. I'll certainly be watching a lot of. Nba people will be watching but brandon. Stay out of a set of massachusetts. Kevin has like some basketball. Ptsd from all those bc. Matchups i'm sure would probably were so tough. I don't remember kevin. It's not real like talk about it. But lita past. We'd be six thousand.

I'm really excited to do this interview. So thank you for having. Let's see how you feel about twenty five minutes. I think twenty-five might be too long. Let's see how you feel after cozy five. We have a lot. We want to get into here with you. And we're going to try to get in as much as we can. Because you have a spectacular story and you're really distinguished person not just goaltender but i want to start by talking about goaltending because the choice to become a goaltender. I think is different for everybody. Some they see goaltender. Make a big save on television. Wrote a game and they say. I wanna do that for others. it's well. I had three older brothers and they all played and they needed a kid to stand in net and an act as a target. What was it for you devon. Why'd you become a goaltender parlay the second one. I had five older brothers but the opposite four of them were goalies. We had one demand in family. Yeah my I hated goalie when you're young and you don't have the pads and you go in the net with the goalie stick and faded i. I wanted to score goals and after bet. My dad came home with some pads. He's like you're try these out. And we had a native provincials. It's called big alberta tournament native communities i was pre novice and you know he strapped the pads on me. I said i'll try to and went out there. And i hate it like i hated asian i remember letting in goals in crocker's everyone getting mad at me you know and we were pretty nagas these gizzard rapid parks agai sucked. I wasn't wasn't a good experience. And i went right back into a player and our goalie moved or something so we had no goalie Games as all right. Like i have stuff. I guess i'll go. ned. And i never looked back. Got four brothers who played goalie. Yeah in one season. So i think some might have played. A few seasons only retired early but we had all five of us. I guess goalies yet.
Interview With Mae Martin From the Series 'Feel Good'
"We treat yourself. I always guests introduce themselves are now remembering we. Did this. live the live episode. We did it live at the london. Podcast festival yeah. I feel like this is more the the true the true essence of the now. We're getting that's exact now. It's like now we're going to get one but like let's do the real one. Yeah now do the real shot I'm martin i'm a comedian and other often. I'm having a pretty good pretty time in life. It's a nice day. Yeah yeah he's talking to you. I'm going to be talking to you too. You gotta show. You've show that's great. Thanks that's probably. I'm sure there's probably a high crossover between people who listen to your chest. Podcast in and watch your show. That feels like i think you're right. I just straight up black dot just to yeah just a one to one that ven diagram is just a circle. I think and i remember the last time we talked you. Were like so. What have you got going on. And i couldn't. I can say it had been. I wasn't allowed to set but since then done two seasons. Yeah and actually because the second season is just coming out. Now we're like came out last week or something like that timing. I watched it. But i have but i love the first season and i'm very excited to find out what continues to happen. Thanks yeah it's it's it's a rocky road but i think it's a satisfying ending because that's it now. I'm not going to do a third one bedroom. Yeah that's it. We only have just. Yeah just like a love story with the proper ending. That's wonderful. yeah so mean financially not wonderful. But i don't know that's stupid but creatively. It's you know it's cool. Because i think if you if you were to keep just throwing throwing problems at one couple you'd have to like every at the beginning of every season you have to undo all the personal growth that those characters made just eternally and i wanted them to actually grow and then leave them in a pretty good place.

"Missing really good action television show on a ship. I mean that's pretty cool. This is my third time working for michael bay and one thing you know about michael bay is he knows. Actually that's that's his speciality and that's what really drew me to the show is even though he's not onset all the time. Mike obeyed brings in intensity to his projects and it raises. Everyone's standards so it's just one of those things where the show i feel like everyone is at the top of their game and it's showing on screen and it's really exciting to be a part of something that's that is doing really well i. I'm very proud to be part of this. So how involved is the navy on the set. Absolutely the navy is with us every step of the way. It's almost like plugging into the source. Like every time on maybe we have every different position in the navy. That's their consulting whether it's with the writers with with the actors different departments. I've had navy seals onset every single day. Multiple may be sold on seven and michael base. I requested me was getting the navy seals. Personally so i think having the navy around us has really helped us authenticate what we're doing and a lot of shows tried to authenticate portraying the navy. They don't do well at it. And i think so far from the response that we've received for doing a good job at it and it's because they're guiding us so it's It's beautiful companionship that we've created and keep going in that direction. He remarks about how the navy audience reacted to a special screening of the pilot. So we had the the navy put on a big premiere force in dc. Which was it was incredible. There's the moment when i kiss cara and the whole audience was like whispering. They freaked out because they know that. It's not allowed. But they know that it happens and this is just so. I think a lot of the stories. We're covering really do happen. The navy might want not wanna talk about it but these are things that have been before that. I just being made up out of. He tells us about his training on his. You know we did a couple of days of weapon training and when on set i know specifically for me. I have a navy seals watching everything that i do. They help aligning with what be thinking mentally. Yes it's beautiful to have. It feels like my safety. They tell me how by gun navigate with my john how i flow with my gun. Everything how i shoot it. How it looked at the scope and then they'll watch the takes a lot of times they'll be like okay. I loved it whenever they start with. I loved it. I know there's a but coming. I loved it but that don't do that do this. Thank you thank you so much. So as much as it's uncomfortable sometimes as much as i mess up based on record so as you as you got onto the season gotten more comfortable telling absolutely in the season as we got later and later on. They were like okay. You're learning so. I definitely no way. Those guys exceed my character in every way capacity. Doesn't compare to these guys. They have such mental physical emotional endurance training. They can handle anything and they're the most soft and gentle human beings yet they can kill you and fifteen different ways like that so these guys are extraordinary human beings in no way. Would i ever take on that feet. Try to become more intimidating. Michael back michael base fun to work with like i'm saying like as long as you're matches an incident you have a great time because he likes to play around incentives very serious very intense but he likes to play. He likes to riff. He likes him props for thinks he just wants to capture he. Does we need to do to get that out of you. So is as intense as it is. It's a ride worker. Michael guy next. Is eric dane. Who is tom. Chan were being saluted. Lived until you've been saluted man good to be the king long hours Heavy workload. I enjoy it. How does he prepare for the role. The uniform on very literally put uniform on and ninety percent of work is done constraints walk a little taller. A little straighter. It's you know we have great writers and I felt that. If i just keep in mind that i to keep in mind process an actor and say the lines things work out. You know haven't modeled this character after anybody. I haven't found any inspiration from other characters. Were they inspired me. I just tried to play the moment and keep it truthful spa. What's interesting is that it has to do so much. Because there's no one leader according to our government. And he asked to be essentially president in he has to be the united states and canada remind people what the and then also be like. A father figure almost counselor time roles so whereas a lot of different hats that a lot of balls in the word conflict. Sometimes i'll for the most part. It's just a you know. It's like have the way to the world on my shoulders literally literally and figuratively but it creates friction with my exo played by adam baldwin. Because he's not always gonna agree with my decision minutes this other element where he's never gonna fleet up and become a ceo. There's no government left. The chain of command is kind of stock in where it's at. I'm the. I'm the commanding officer. He's the oh. And and that's that's it until humanity or civilizations your store. The viral aspect of the series is still in today's headlines. No doubt i mean. Open a newspaper every day as a new virus that pops up somewhere in the world in thirty years ago this would have been considered science fiction. Now it's highly probable. You know. I don't know if you guys were at the panel. But it's blocking plausible that because of the melting permafrost that in ancient microbe could yield Sort of bacteria that's a our bodies built up an immunity towards no way to fight him off.

And you know we had the possibility of the of the Academy the academy awards for which was vetoed. Unfortunately you know but these are these are guys that are just. They go largely unrecognized. And you know it's every bit if not more important than having the actor out there. I mean in an action picture You know that that's not your actor out there doing those gags. It's it's just unfortunate that you know. A lot of that stuff is not recognized so we wanted to do the show and i wanted to do with To get a chance to say you know.

We love it when people right into the fight. That's great. that's great. If it wasn't for the viewer we wouldn't be here period so it sounds like you're kind of going through a transition in your career. You're kind of going away from the performing side and doing doing more the producing and maybe directing side. Yeah well okay let me see. I'm not a young man anymore. Wiz and hitting the ground is for the young guy. Yeah you know. I'm suffering the ills of all the ground. I hit when i was younger. And just it's one of the things. The body goes no no. You don't want to be doing that anymore. And you're like yes. I hear you and so what's the other option. I mean you can become a stunt coordinator which for me you know. If i'm not doing the gag myself i'd rather i'd rather be on the other side and actually producing the entire entity because that way the the creative side of the whole show is in your hands and not somebody else's yes worry about things you know. Create a controlling snatched away from. You may have a vision for something you want to follow it through the best of your ability and not have somebody else come in and modified for you kind learn how to edit too so you are actually able to put things together and see a structure and that really helps a lot too. Oh does yeah no. I'm a screenwriter. I've got seven script out there. So i'm just finishing another one right now about al qaeda and the taliban some al qaeda cells in montreal..

"I'm only going to be in the production of producing it. So there you go. Yeah let i have some friends who i can trust to handle the other side of it but you'll i learned a lot in that last season's done dog. Oh yeah yeah. I think a lot of shows no matter what type of show it is learned a lot in the forget. You kind of have to find your way. You know exactly how that was it. I mean we you know we had a we had a path and it just sort of like you know. The brush was cleared before we went. Sort of thing you know. And and We were very lucky and we just came up with a winning format. It took us a while to you. Know to beat it together. We had it started out actually a sort of a reality. We i think we call it a real survivor in. Its very first generation. Was nothing like what you see now. Oh i don't know if you heard about it in the states that there was a guy who had gone you ought to mexico and have been mugged by pirates and his throat cut and dumped off his own boat. The die wow And this is for real guy from canada here yeah and survived anyway with his throat cut on the beach and manage to make you know and and was rescued and saved and mile. Basically the premise of the show was. We're going to take situations like that. Recreate them and then have the actual person who had survived it you know. Give some background as to what had happened. And you know that worked and it was a great concept but the networks were like. Yeah but you know we we want a little. This thing is sort of cool. We like you know the action bits and and so gradually got home down into what you know what you see now. That's another thing too. That was interesting and the big fall episode was the fact that i think you're getting ready to prep one of the stunts..

"That's great melted car melted. Ford probe out there. That's the one you know. There's a gentleman whose name escapes me. But he's the guy who rigged all the cars and that was really cool to watch too. Yeah he would take things out like four. The pipe ramp would like go inside and take power power yeah. He was amazing the things that he did with cars. And you know just. I'm not a big car aficionado. But i'd like to see that kind of stuff especially how it relates to stunts. And all this tripping they have to do they get the inside just right for the son of. There's a lot of you know when you're when you turn on a car over. It's not just get in and go. Yeah go into it. Take that stuff that can be dangerous. You know you like any try to. We try to mitigate the danger and take away as much but at some point that even the smallest thing. You've all this leave that that won't be a problem exactly exactly. I was really impressed with the show. And i would say a couple of times during the show but i mean the magic that you did on the budget. You had was really amazing. I've heard through. The grapevine actually am not to my face but in the in vancouver in the industry that we have here which is fairly fairly large. Yeah it is and we have a lot of shows coming up from the states and well we were doing our gag on our little. Our little tv series. The word was getting out there to the producers of big shows that were coming up here and they were chastising bear second unit directors and their stunt coordinator. Saying you know. Look at these guys on a little tv series with with only x dollars that you know pocket change. They're pulling off these killer gags and doing it in five days. Why is this you guys are doing for me taking two weeks and costing me half a million. These coordinators are coming to us guys you know. Let's well we can't do that. This is what we do. You have working with you to exactly. I probably one of the best teams and beth crews ever. And i worked on a lot of shows and i tell you that there was nobody that ever had an attitude. It was like if something needed to be done. It was done We had production people pulling cable on days. We had you know everybody. Everybody pulled their weight and more and the crew with just lean and tight and everybody knew their job and did it. Well that translates on the screen. I think you could see that that and everybody had a lap every day. We just looked at each other at the end of the ban went. Damn i forgot. We paid for this today. Yeah exactly that's the best kind of days you can have. You don't know what to expect when you hear something a concept and you know a lot of it. Also the credit go to our editor 's are just basically swamped with footage because we run nine high def cameras at a time. So i'll yeah you know there's there's a ton of stuff to deal with them basically just assembly assembly at that point you know.

"If i can make it through this i can make it through anything. Its name art of dying. So it's not just you know it's not just a sort of head banging rock and roll love the chicks me a drink blah blah blah goal to it which i really appreciate it absolutely. No you know when you guys are doing. And it certainly. Obviously it can be applied to different other areas in life as well so the great tune. In fact i did Johnny and i do an acoustic version of it together. Tell nice for entertainment tonight. Oh cool cool. Hey that's great. The show looks like i'm really pleased with it. And i guess i really am curious to find out what's what's the future is. How much season one finished yet. They did during It's been airing It's airing up here in canada movie network movie central. We're hoping to get some other some picked up by some other networks so they can go a little bit more worldwide. Yeah we're working on the season. Two right now cool. Yeah can you kind of tell us what might be coming up in to. What kind of gags. We haven't actually started shooting anything to get ordeal. Signed and everything for it right right but i'll give you some hints as to One is i wanted to do. I wanted to a full western episode of cool where we do Sort of like the you know the bad guys. Right into town get drunk The sheriff tries to grab them throw them in jail. The sheriff this one of the deputies get shot they hang. They hang one of the brothers the bad guys. The whole gang rides in the next day blows the bar up Stage coach all that. So you basically make the movie would be you know show how a hanging has done your show the shootout how the bullet hits you're done you show how shotgun blasts and the ratchet behind that they show high falls off the roof of the buildings and then you have the runaway stage coach with the classic drag that yeah come not..

"Cool. Dot com people were just writing in like crazy and In fact ricky had several suitors writing in at where they can hook up with her. And i'm like well dude you take and it was great to deliver to her ice and then to see you know the relationship that she established with kurt. That's one of kurt's real strong point is is his mentor ship. And his father figure and he's way to everybody really you know. I mean he understands that you know to get somebody through this stuff. You can't push them too hard or they just like. They'll shy away and they won't do it and you know he's he's been there. He understands that that was one of my favorites. And then you did lead another episode that i really liked to. It's hard to pick favorites but these sled you know they were cooled. The full body burn really showed you something that we never really got to see. We've seen a lot of people set on fire but we really don't see the preparation goes into something like that and that and it was the first time timer also against that particular show like when we first sat down at the beginning of the season to do this whole thing. That was one of the one of the criteria that i really wanted. I wanted a full burning the whole in the end. The season Because that is one of the things that requires ca. You know it's not. It's not about angles or any of that. But it's about chemistry. I mean you You mix those fuels. He wanted to burn hot but at the same time. You don't want the heat from it. You have to protect your skin against the flame and at the same time last long enough and doesn't go up and steam. Some of the gels can actually burn you in they As they dissipate creates steam. And that's team gives you burn. Yeah so there's so many variables in that that nobody ever season of course where we were quite concerned and building that episodes in the edit suite that we didn't reveal too much about it..

"I was so amazed that we had no know no injuries or death. At when i came up at he'll i literally expected the peabody turn around. Yeah one of the things that i really love about the show is that you show casey's professionals that rig these stunts i mean i have a more appreciation for a guy like curb on. And how he how he rigs these things. He's actually uses a lot of science in what to that was one thing i really wanted to show in the in the series with people who seem to think that you know to be a fun man you just go out there and throw your building and all it takes is either the lunacy or the bravery or they've been headedness to just go and do something like that but you know we want to be able to get up and do it again and make it into our eighties and beyond you know and to do that. You've got to sit down and calculate the the odds and calculate the angles and all that otherwise you end up dead or you know mangled older stunt guys. That have had literally you know hit. Both hips replaced both knees replaced elbows. Replaced wanna go there. Yeah i hear you can kurtz done some great work. I mean the fantastic four lately. Pro you know high robot. He did deep rising which is one of my favorites and paycheck and then can't woman to some great things i mean to say. He's meticulous as an understatement. Yeah just like if you. We showed his shop and one of the episodes of really got into it fully out there but i mean the details in his shop. I mean he machine all of his own stuff from aircraft aluminum tolerances. That are well beyond. Anybody's requires in the industry. And and i mean he literally does everything himself. He has one assistant that because that's the only guy he trusts and he won't let anybody else help him because if anything does go wrong he doesn't want you know he doesn't want anything to go wrong so he he's like well if you want it done right do.

"In sci-fi talk the first season. I showcase some of the episodes from our earlier days really starting sometimes even before my podcasting career. Two thousand five interview sometimes two thousand nine even earlier. This one is about stunt dogs a television show about recreating famous movie stunts. I had a chance to speak to the driving force behind this peter. Kent feeder is a stuntman. That probably one of his most famous done was in. The film terminator. Terminator two where. He has to gym where he literally is. On top of a nitrogen filled fuel tanker that is tipped over on the side and blows up and terminator gets turned into end and liquid. Terminator gets turned into a frozen popsicle. Anyway here's my interview with peter First of all cater. It's i do want to say that it was a real pleasure to meet you in person. I might be there again if you're will think what was really cool to is probably ended up. Hopefully you'll be able to do this. A timeless his that you were actually able to show some of the footage from one of the shows. You would actually put together yourself. And that was the ratchet gag. You know what's really cool about that and and it was funny because my partners in the show it on me. Feel more a little leery of me doing that. But i didn't tell him i was doing it before i went out with a foot but i wanna just kinda see because on the show we put it together. Just on the fly really. We had a structure in our heads. But when we got the that we still didn't have a completely bowed in yet. So i wanted to see it was actually working. Yeah i thought well here we go. We have a rough cut of the show and we have a captive audience who are avid tv watchers. What better arena thurston. Show the footage there. And i was quite delighted with the response that i got believe me with really. No kidding worry about it was it was pretty riveting and one of the things that i i like about the show. Is you have stunt men. That are doing something for the first time in their careers and that makes it a lot more interesting to watch and and the thing is you capture their anxieties..

"Hi welcome to sci-fi talk the first season here on the sf t network this time with richard hatch talking about battle star galactica among some of his many other projects. Let's go back to two thousand six. Richard hatch i see i do want to mention richard that You know for me personally doing the the convention last year which was gained kind which is really the father of timeless destinations and being onstage with yourself and dirk benedict was a real highlight for me last year. I really had a great time. But we got a little crazy. It was That was actually one of the rare times. I've ever been on stage with dirk because normally we do our own panels. We don't do panels. Wow that's all it was actually fun. I mean i was surprised. We actually got along quite well. Yeah it was very nice. I think a lot of the old Camaraderie you know some from the galactica days. Definitely show through there. I mean people these days. Most people like to do their own panels. Yeah you if you're talker if you're shy you like be up with a group. Yeah there you go and if you're not then you prefer loan not not because you know like other people but because you've probably like interacting with the public in a more free flowing style. It's really high when he got several people that you're talking to up there and it's hard to say what you wanna say and it's always interesting to hear what other people say of course but i just find it Panels and not as much fun for me as it is when i get to get up there and just unless you're with somebody like you know with dirk we can live with each other. Yeah exactly the same way with The guy from a team Chill says dwight so yeah then. Get onstage together. They just are comedy act. Yeah well dwight's naturally funny anyway. So he's a very quite very interesting man. That's not the word. I'll come to me. But he got a very interesting point of view on everything definitely definitely you know another thing too. Is that here. You are actually gonna be holding workshops at timeless for people to attend. i always do workshops. I know everything i do. I speak in lecture all over the country. Yeah i actually i. I always believed that. We all share wisdom teach what we learn the hard way From books from life started doing that about thirty years ago when somebody asked me to come speak for an organization. And i was very shy to do it. But i when i got up there. I found that actually had something to say. If i just basically Let go and allowed my own. You know experiences and wisdom to guide me I found that There's a lot of things that that came out that we're not only relevant for the people listening but for myself. It was almost as if i we start kind of sharing. Maybe the wisdom we've gathered from many and also from living life and we sometimes forget what we know and so I just enjoyed it so much. And i got invited other places when once people heard me speak and it kind of turned into a thing where i started speaking. Churches corporations businesses A number of different kinds of organizations and then started doing my own. Some ours workshops at hotels a little bit like tony robbins type stuff but always dealing with communication with self worth overcoming fear Learning how to unleash your power and creative vision. That means go after what you really wanna do in life learning how to get in touch with who you are what you about. What's most important to you. What your gift to that. And maybe your heart's desire truly is and how to go out there and actually implement you know such a thing to make it a a reality for yourselves and so i i guess after looking at so many talented gifted people sitting back really terrified to go out there and do something with all those gifts. They've been given. I just felt compelled. It gave me such joy to be able to maybe help. Turn the light on and people's eyes and make them realize that they can do it that they can actually go out there and do phenomenal things. If they just have a little faith so i i. I've been doing that in between acting assignments and obviously working on my new production company and writing novels and comic books. And the thousand other things. So now i think it's a very worthy cause. I think anytime you can guide somebody to reach their potential or to take jump and take that risk. I think it's a very worthy. Thanks so. I commend you for that. I saw Barbara's pricing on the actors studio and talking about i related so much to her. You know not because of you know. Comparing town phenomenally talented. But i think she basically said that she had a father that didn't support her believing her mother never said it gave her a compliment to her face because she was afraid. That you'd get a big head and what happened is she basically went the other way and gave barbara really insecurity in theory already complex. Not feeling that she was good enough and so even phenomenal talents. You always was terrified of performing minus amazing. You know most people think my god. How can you be terrified performing when you sing like that when you act like that and And yet it's you know an insecurity self Lack self worth fear. It's not based on logic. It's illogical it's based on belief systems and judgments form in childhood and You know i related to that. Because a child. I was extremely outgoing. Until i was in fourth grade embarrassed by my teacher humiliated in front of the class and i remember after that i was terribly shy afraid of making a fool myself and i really closed up and it took me years to be able to to get up in front of people again. It'd be able to talk and share and open up. you know. That journey was really took me through. Not only acting classes but every form of therapy Every kind of seminar workshop lecture book novel. That i could read to help me. Climb out of this deep hole. I was in and so i. I realize that there's a lot of people you know that are living. Lives of quiet desperation. Like throw says you know and and yet you would never know it. You know from from the surface but i. I got involved in in doing that because my girlfriend. Kinda opening a door. Ucla do extension class and then from there kinda grew and everything else. I'm doing but i love teaching and lecturing and telling stories and getting up in front of an audience and playing with them and interacting and sharing. You know it's more than just talking about how you made your career happen. You know i think When you get up there on that stage it becomes a whole other powerful experience just letting go and seeing what wants to show up and when you kind of open the door For people to kind of begin sharing a deeper more heartfelt place then you have an incredible hour or two hours. Whatever the the panel's going to be of of sharing heart to heart. And i find that that's the most meaningful kind of workshop that one can do. That's awesome to get on that all star galactica. Here has has tom's eric. I just think the first time. He appeared When we saw the to apollo's together. I mean you're looking at it and part of you joined performance and the other part of here saying these are the only two men that have ever played captain apollo together in the same scene. Now how cool is that. Well not only that but to think now actually he. He played apollo so much more than i have. Yeah that's right. Thirty seven hours of follow. The post might twenty one hour so twenty four hours so no power number one it was. It was really cool. And there's a speech given the first episode where you're talking about and the paolo son of zeus. And you're going through that whole thing when he's like you're captive thought. That was every time the two together. There's always this great tension.

You really get into the universe, and you allow you know everybody to immerse themselves. Will that you know? Now what I want to ask you about you score a French cop show I. Mean I i. mean I I know what the American ones are like, and they tend to be especially once a deal here in New York. Aw, and stuff. How musically Howard do have the French shows. As far as scoring the Koch our. The big difference it's. Much more talking. The action, but then there's not that much. Sometimes I just talk here. Isn't that very? Very cerebral sometimes, so it's different than other will is really an underworld. I don't know if you watch law and order here in this country is a lot of talking that one. Actually well, law and order is Steph. It's more like a when I'm doing. It's more like a kind of A. You know. A. Small version of a twenty four. It's more like action packed like that Oh. Nice field. It wait did talk a lot. Learn ardor different. Cases, you know look. No yeah, a lot of stuff like that. And as I mean, are you able to I? Mean? The being human schedule is a little different. Something? That's very unique like for example, most shows starting September, but they have it staggered so like being human will start in January and I guess it runs well until the the spring. Is that how it's going to run or? Does it. Get broken up in half again, or does it or does the entire season for the broadcast? I have no clue. I have no clue ear. I know that year we really We We don't have stop the production that you know. I know that. But. I have no clue this stop. In the middle of season I don't think so. I think it's a certain weeks in a row and that so you do thirteen. You have thirteen episodes to do coming. Eight now you're on number eight. Wow, so you guys are moving along. That's great. You can always tell because. The actors aren't available. 'cause they're. They're shooting of course so. Yeah I think now, if just the finish shoot. The for a Monday I financial. Definition shoot so normally. The you know the steps are. Video FACS. I'm the end they cannot finish without me basically. Not. All so I'm never late. I'm always on time, but I think also they've got a lot of easy are a to do. Yeah, yeah, dialing or With the actors and sometimes actors are back in La, so. I know the schedule. It's pretty complicated for me anyway I don't have choice to have to deliver. No, that's that's that's an amazing. How how shows? Every composer. That's our job. We have to deliver on time. You Know Yeah Yup that's part of the job he up. It is it is? It's a deadline kind of business and you have to get it out there. Creative and they'll everyone time. And adds up I. Mean you know this is season three I guess I would assume there's probably going to be afford, even though it's too early to talk about that, but I would assume scifis thinking along those line. I hope you have to tell everybody to watch the show has. To, of course, they're gonNA, have it. Yeah! I. Don't think that's a problem. A lot of people that listen to me in go on my side are fans of the show and I know because when I put things about each episode and idea I literally. Preview every. Episode And then if they're like at like comic con, there are pictures an and I posted those up to and on some of my other picture sites that I have and people. You know that. Those fans know that there's an album available in. January. That's why we're doing this interview. So cool because we put you. In the mood of of the series I love soundtrack CDs. It's great because now you can put him on your ipods and take you anywhere and you know that's that's works great about it. Yes, and the and the thing about being human, no I do other scores, but the fun about being an as a as a composer it's it's outweigh between a standard. You know score and songs so so that. Even for lessening. You're actually melody, and it's not like you know some. Some normal in score. Score. It's really you know scores music so like a move. This one is a lot of almost like a song structures so fun to listen to. Cool that's cool. So so so you. We'll have some surprises coming up musically this year. Probably you can well, there's always surprises. His. Sometime get new characters insist that. All the I've got new team. Yeah! What was it like when you had to score? Like I mean this is already aired. especially the ones where they do the flashbacks in time that kind of thing. Like. Oh, I love that. Love that every time we go back. Yeah, well I. Part of the the tone or the texture use of instrument I, the old Irish. Hertie Gertie and sometime I mixed up with some. Middle East flu. So, and you know I. Try to do those I rid of instrument. And why don't we go back to No, we those flashback with aiden. You know even if even if it's from the you know last year I did a song sound a bit like in the twenties. With this shop, but even if it's so from I, don't know which you're open war. I tried to The funding now suddenly I go. Normally the sound of the series it's more urban edgy. NO BASE GREW A. Fixture of guitar for only whoops. I go very more film kind. You know very minimalistic and I'm I'm fulling. I'm scoring in the more And I think. Helped to put you back in time I think yeah, absolutely those old instrument or early Gertie and get car, which is a kind of a an old. You know violent outer. I speaking of Bishop I hope I know you can't say anything but I would love to see him. Come back some weight this year. I think it'd be awesome to see him again because he was such a great character. You have to watch I know I know I. Know We can't talk about it, but I just that's my own. That's my own wishlist for this year. That's what I'd like. Any exactly anything can happen on the show. And it usually show. Yeah, yeah, so you're an episode number eight and Don't give anything away, but is it. Is it a season well in his full of surprises, but what? What's the tone of the season musically this year, is it? Is it well. They? They the fact that go back last year. A lot of characters were on their own with their own. You know story and. Saudi with the reaper and things, no, yeah, they all go back a lot altogether. So I really go back to the mood of the first season, and that good the interaction of the to the tree of them in the house, and there's a lot of It's very cool. That sounds that sounds on, but the all there. Yes..

Because there's a lot of people who disappointed if you don't do. It just really amazed that level of sexy so many things. I feel like I aged myself.

Three D Recently Green Lantern Super AIDS and just wrapped up with Scott's previous talking to you from Scifi Talk. Today I've compiled a few interviews from the round tables of the last two comic cons I attended and I have. Josh Gates is the new season on the sci-fi Channel With as Investigative Program Destination Truth starting this July tent. You know they investigate. Paranormal legendary creatures and mythologies are all explored from all around the world. Let's go now to the roundtables with Josh Gates. Who ACTUALLY CORRECTS ME? On the right season they are beginning to shop. The very first part of season five any new places on the. Yeah you know we The show is really obviously travel show at art and so every year we traveled to new and hopefully places and this year we just got back from three months overseas so we spent a little time in Central America where Belise Guatemala Sweden We spent a few weeks in Kazakhstan. Which is a country that does get featured very often outside of Borat and Southeast Asia and a bit of time in in the islands of Fiji so a pretty diverse group locations. This season going to be a great great. I really dug the bill. The underwater goes on. That was like that took it to a whole new. It was. It was really great for us to you know we. We filmed in these islands and Micronesia truck. And there's just all these championships from the Second World Wars have settled down in this In the deep water there and to be able to go down there and penetrate those rats and dies in the shadow of you know this War is always it was Pretty intense stuff but it was. It was great to be able to. I'm happy with off. So he tells about how they're shooting schedule is set up inciting some great locations. From last season's we tend to film in three months blocks or blocks and We just three months overseas. And we'll be doing. Some episodes in the Pacific will be Guam and Micronesia so great islands there that don't featured. I think nearly enough have a lot of interesting history and so we'll be doing stuff there. We do a great overnight show. Anchor Watt in Cambodia which is largest religious building in the world and a place hasn't been filmed at night very often. So that's that's something really looking forward to Ten Days in Siberia So we go from hot to cold and and then we'll be going through North Africa down in East Africa and then a couple of episodes in Madagascar which another place that is. I think not you know featured enough on. Cd has an amazing biodiversity. So much great creatures. We're looking for paranormal episodes and always a lot of travel season ahead. Oh skadden I actually have a bit of a competition with the president of the channel who were always compared you know comparing our yearly mileage levels but he always always beats me out amazing perching out. Sometimes you know. They certainly with with the stories that we go after like Lake. Monsters are great examples. Some some towns where there's a sighting of a late creature they go onto it and go. This is an opportunity for us to get people here so you know occasionally you will find places that really latch onto the stories that we go after and try to use it as a promotional tool but I think you know for the most part you know we tend to try to seek out stories that are current that are in the news right now and they're not necessarily things like the Loch ness monster which should have long established thing so really. If something just happens we try to kind of jump on it right away and so often. We're sort of there before the publicity machine cranks out Trying TO GET PEOPLE OVER THERE. Somebody who's just think they heard that Kidney News played the shot a macabre in. I don't know where it was. It was just in the news of the day. I this kid shot a dog but No you don't think for us it's really about. It's about the different cultures that country. So we're always trying to go to new places got kind of hit list of you know wishlist place. We want to go on the show. We've we've managed to go to a lot of it. So hopefully in the next season will be able to take a few more of those off the list and looking for us. It's really about bringing our viewers to place. They have been doing before exposing them to interesting the stories but the culture of the country. So we've got lots of places left to go. He's busy in this lease Brazil. We went to Brazil In the beginning of second season briefly in Amazon with a with a story there Munaf Senate and in various tributaries the Amazon. But you know. Brazil is like A number of other big countries in the world. Where you you go there and you think I'm going to go to Brazil do Priscilla when you get there and you realize how big it is and that you're gonNA scratch service so hopefully we'll return to Brazil We did China last year China. And you realize it's hopeless like you never gonNa see all China too big so we would love to return there. It's obviously incredible place. You guys like the Indiana Jones. Investigators kind of our move and we try to I. I think that for us for these stories that we do whether it's a creature story or paranormal story. We really try to do them in places where the actual location is as much of a character is anything else in it you know. We want our viewers really brought in by the culture that we're going to so we we try to choose their locations carefully to places that are themselves really dynamic and an interesting and he describes shooting very key episode last year in. Tibet. That really was our white whale. You know we. We had that on the list forever. We it's so difficult to not just to travel there to bring television show. There is so hard the little things cowering equipment and all that stuff is no infrastructure. Down there you know at all so it was something we talked about doing from the very beginning of the show and it was. It was a long time coming in as that we were able to pull it off and you know but we still have that list of other places. WanNa try to go to you know. There are some amazing parts of the world that have been off limits to this amazing sponsors central northern Africa. That really dangerous that we'd love to go to with mixed to to bat. I would love to do that on the show. Some other spots in the Himalayas. There are plenty of spots not at the bottom of the world that are still very challenging to get to and difficult to get access so we still got lots of challenges. He wants wondered if they would ever run out of story. It's a lot of travel right. We spent about half a year overseas. I think we first started the show. We had this fear that we would run out of things to look for. You know and certainly I do think there is a finite amount of things that people are en masse reporting seeing right. It's not every day. Some one hundred people see a lake monster or something but we've really discovered as we've traveled every we go to a country to a story. We'll hear five other stories while we're there. You know that there are these really great kind of unsolved unknown mysteries around the world and now feels like we could. We could really do it for a long time As long as we can keep on keeping want to get on a plane every every year but I think right now we all still see it as it's a real privilege and it's really fun to get paid to travel for me and I can't think of a better job to have ever tried to a couple episodes of the states. This cycle didn't season five point. Oh that we just found but I'm sure that in In the back half season you might. There are a number of big stories here. We've never never done a bigfoot story in US southeast sort of King of King of the did so Yeah we like to stuff here. In the states to trying to find a way to show aspects of culture that are a little off to be passed so It's a pope. Who will come back and do some feature his. We've legend Westwood sexually similar some of the stuff as you're like Vincent inside both titles you have your established stairs kind of you know. Kinda give you some wiggle. Yeah look I think that's actually seen a note from your the other week and I was overseas which I haven't seen it yet but I think that there's a real total difference in the shows. You know what I mean. It and is obviously a symbol expert in his areas of expertise are different. Take one of the things that we really tried to make a core part of density. Truth is the comedy misadventure. You know this sort of you know what it takes to get there. And all the sort of hijacks that go along with that because that's a big part of travel and and so You know I think there's a real difference in the tonality of the two shows in terms of the subject matter. I'm sure there'll be a few areas where crosses over but it was a lot of stories out there a Lotta legends myths. So I think it should burn forever. Yeah I would say that the worst wars that we've had is. We lost our first story and season four in India. We India is a place. That's a real natural fit with a show. It's an amazing vibrant culture. It's difficult to travel around India. So it's great for us because you can you know a lot of misadventure to travelling and it's a very bureaucratic place. It's it's a tough place to permit and we had. We were along the path trying to permit a trip to India and it fell through the do it. So it's probably our most difficult challenges. We are able to get ourselves really in there with the shank. The other troubles happened kind of at the tribal level. You know you get in these very small small cultures where you know. There's the cheap and you kind of have to kiss his ring and go through a lot of you know. Local sort of ceremony stopping and that requires a lot of delicate negotiations. The book is coming out in the in the fall. September October. But it's done. I'm happy to say it's You know I finished it and And I'm really looking forward to coming out. It was a lot of work. There's there's gather is a bit of it in there. It's not primarily a photo book. It's mostly about the show and there. There are some photos in there and I'm really proud of it. I've never written anything like that before and I chose to do it. Maybe foolishly without a ghost rider or that an assistant. I wanted to really do it myself. And and dig into it so that was probably a mistake Only because it took me a lot longer than I than I think it would. If I'd had help lead in the end I can really say that he did it myself. And so Helping it. I'm a big Fan of Southeast Asia. I Love Thailand and Cambodia Vietnam Laos that whole region I love and so we were able to spend a couple of weeks in Vietnam this last season. Just something about that whole region is just so attractive to me. The people are so wonderful part of the world and the cultures are really vibrant. And I think if I cash out and just Spanish one day that's where you can look for me as Post beach somewhere in Thailand proudly. Yeah we tend to work with call fixer or a of of producer each country who helps achieve things at a local level language barriers. And things like that. So we meet all these really interesting producers in various parts of the world. We maintain really strong relationships with them. We've got a great producer in the Amazon. You know great friends in Egypt. All over the world and At a local level to also fascinating people sometimes very out of the way places and trade emails and you get into these long sort of pen pal relationships folks across the world so yeah hi.

"That's what it's like you know. There's a lot of things that happened When you have multiple creative forces writers producers directors and the makeup that you're creating and when you get in there sometimes they want to change and it's done you know so you got a director that love to writers that want change something after all these meetings. Zehr the money spent and we're putting in front of the camera. There's always all these external pressures that you have to deal with them. So I'm trying to like I said anyway. The conditions work under the trailer all the time force them to think on their feet and whatever you want this uses did a great job in writing that challenge novum freak out and you know Loses their mind is pretty impressive. Yeah definitely I you there but It's it's great. Also that you mentioned the that the cord judges yourself the and Patrick atop serve all come back this season. I think that it meant a lot to hear all of you. It was great as a fan of makeup. And I've been reading books on it and just paying attention to it but I just you know I'm more of a fan than anything else but it was. It's great to hear your comments and critiques. And you know I learned a lot just as a fan of makeup on what you guys say instruct them and and how things are done. So that's part of the cool part of the show for me that I enjoy awesome. And that's an element that there's one change between last season in this season that we're focusing on that element even more learning experience for all of us the first season and you know we have the storm working with and now we know exactly how things go as far as timing out. And we're focusing more on three in that knowledge being a little more Focus on illustrating the techniques and describing what it is gone. Why were judging them? Certainly. Having that degree there's confusion lasting at home kind of why does that person and that person's day honestly difficult. It's pretty obvious the top three in the bottom Viagra you making the decision of the users and then he gets an episode really technical logistical aspects. That were pouring over and dean. Patrick and I just values as far as looking for what we're judging So we try and earn the season. The May exactly clear. And try to turn up that aspect of the show the aspects wherein we're showing the audience illustrating how things are done and why we're looking at specific things. Yeah it's it's my favorite Non Scripted show or unscripted. Show on Scifi. It's just a because it's so related to the business and I think that's Whoever came up with the ideas? Great idea and it's really cool to watch you know all of you and I admire all your work All through all three of you and then the guest stars to are no are coming. So it's just a lot of fun to watch and I'm always willing to see what comes up next. I know that you might be able to say too much on this one but you did work on on. Cherney to mysterious island You only can ask. You is because it is based on a ver- novel that give you a little bit more freedom than than maybe. The Hunger Games did such a wells in ferns thing and to the point where the entire sort of new fascination size because of deals like sort of this weird niche saying that We'll do you get creative. Ownership over that of course are not ours but because the popular yields attached to them and then when things are found and they've become extremely sober. Suppose that sort of away takes away from me a little bit an extremely excited when I got the call this honest. It's one specific thing bats doing this and it's Sashi cool piece of films are your here to me has really can't discuss it.

The I got the fish. This would have been great great. That's when that works out that way you know it's pretty good and I know you're busy and I really appreciate your time but I know that you worked on Buffy and Angel Did you do the makeup for Hush?

A lot in between working trout eventually settle their supervisor and funding company up but yes in the buffy Angel X. Files at multiple stops working on. We had puffy for. Its entire run up until WANNA say it was using six seven seven and then they were just getting on in the series and their budget started to really get restrictive and ended up working somebody else and same with angel around the exiles wasn't Santa for we have a lot of people. Ask Us you know what we did or didn't do I think it was season three or four. When you gotta remember it time we were working on that stuff you know I was.

He Angel Exiles Roswell links and it was around then when we started doing crossing Jordan which is so I was really called I in silicone forensic stuff led to New York.

Just you don't WanNa do it for the first time you locked in a room for an hour days in the pressures on and they're making changes in the middle of the night you're going to really don't like I'd rather do something else for with some people make them realize that's what the license and onset as Welton huge long days with a lot of pressure extremely rewarding. But you it. You're not going to end up doing it for even all your current dreams come true and you get the job you want and you get to the shop where you get to the set the some rigorous things to do for a living. Yeah very difficult and so And it also takes an amazing amount of flexibility. Your ego constantly have people that aren't affects her changing your work and understanding that your commercial artists and ultimately contributing much bigger piece of art. And you got to do what it is they want you to. Do you have to do it? Well not because you want to do x y you got to get their vision out of their head in three dimensions but like yeah like I've always. My philosophy is as far as creating makeup is. You're not really doing makeup. You're you're you're enhancing and also creating a character that and in some cases it's never been seen before so it's really more character base than actually just creating a monster or something. That's the way I've always looked at you absolutely you know shows. I do a meeting for every episode. Paul nine hundred ninety nine cents myself still every other week for every show that I work on every two hundred meeting so the two. Then you've got a few days them up with the idea and budget and get it through hole and hopefully you haven't shrunk T- GERBILS launderer. We can have and we not Pfleger in front of the camera and there's no time like there is some film to let them see the sculptures job or see the volume the monster and so what become the most important part of the job is your ability to synthesize the information that's being shared verbally and a singular meeting thought your gene then using words get an engineer had created the way that producers directors writers wanted and somehow managed to make that happen with no misteps to close enough to the vision in their head that when re roles in front of the cameras like. Wow that's awesome. That's exactly what we want it and that's a very difficult thing to do because it's not one person right here doesn't go. I wanted to this one of the and you don't have six months to pick a couple stabs at the budget and ties. Not there you gotta get it right because they're not even going to sit in front of the camera and they're not happy with it. Then they're not happy with the final product and you're not gonNA have client very. Yeah so my job is when you get into the room the first meeting. It's just trying to pull out using.
"one season" Discussed on Sci-Fi Talk: The First Season
"Work with a lot of your scenes in conflict with Jonathan. What was it like to work with him? He taught me a lot. I in the beginning I I was. I was determined that I would play the heroine. I wanted Angelique to be the leading lady of the peace. Who kept saying my dear. Go the heavy. You're with the row? Don't you realize you're much more fun to be a villain this to be simply little? Heroin does nothing to cry android and the directors would come to be sitting. Stop playing so sweetly. Get a mean old witch. So he no. He finally convinced today that I should try for the evil side. I should plumb the depths of my own personality. I I've never been jealous of anyone. He said yellow bid there. My dear. It's deep inside of you. So I started to really work. He was he guided me. He'd have been a Shakespearean actor and he was very gentle and supportive. Of course I had no problem remembering lines. He had a terrible time remembering so I pulled him out of many bad situation. Just we shot the show live on tape. All the mistakes we made went on the air and many times he'd go up and I'd say his lines for him and say that right or or come in when he was stumbling and I could see that. Look in his eyes and so It was great joy to play so many scenes with him but I enjoyed very much. We spoke to catch at least got earlier and she said that you know even though you are always out to get her on the show people are good friends off. Cameron's that's true. That's very true. Yeah I think we still have a kind of affectionate rivalry man. He wear yard next to each other selling pictures in books and speaking of books You've actually kind of transition and become an author as well you wrote a story like a Prequel story for Angelique. Have you can tell us a little bit about that. Well I mean if Angelique because my first professional role angelique descent my first professional writing job and it was just a marvelous opportunity. Harpercollins came to me and they said we want to launch a series new series of novels and mass market paperbacks based on the show but they're all original stories. I said I'd give it a try and they said well actually I've been studying screenwriting so I and I've been doing quite a bit of writing but I had never tried to read a novel and they said well you don't have to worry. Just do the best you can. And we'll get a professional writer to fix it all up for you hoping that really you know. That was a great challenge. I didn't want I didn't want anyone taking my writing if I worked hard on it and fixing it so I I spent about a year. I did a tremendous amount of work. I I did a lot of research on seventeen ninety five and Martinique. Which is we're Angelique was born. I only we only had a few facts to go on. We're just two three. Mentions of her past all. I had to build this whole story on how she became which how she became involved in which craft and blue in Haiti. And what's what's It was like to live on a sugar plantation with slavery and religion of the slaves and that was all built into the story plus the fact that she had this incredible Romance Barnabus when she was very young on the island of Martinique and she expected it to last a lifetime. So that's really what the story is all about. It's a Prequel to my first entrance on the actual dark shadows television show. It's everything that led up to that moment. No it's nice and novelist telling me this all the time especially they do something that's media related. There's no budget novel. He can do anything in it. Which is Great? Yes yes but the freedom is is it makes you. It makes your head swim. You do realize that you can do anything and with that comes a certain sense of responsibility. In other words you really have to keep the plot intact to be consistent characters consistent the tone of the writing persistent. Sometimes when you're stuck it's amazing what will come to you in terms of the plot turn of events but for the most part it's it's it's it's it's just long hours of hard work a lot of rewriting. How is your routine? Did you actually outline everything first? And then just you know. Have a routine where you wrote every day at a certain time or did things kind of courtesy kind of speak to you different times of the day at times. I've always convenient time. Composing Harpercollins gave a million dollars to Jackie Collins Cash. They gave a million dollars to Joan Collins to write a book and she never when she finally turned it in and they couldn't publish it so tons change from the eighties when the money was just pouring out so they insisted that I write outline which would be looked at by many of the people and that do three or four chapters which would be sort of example of my writing and they were actually thrills and I stuck exactly to that outline. And that's why it's five hundred something pages long because I thought I'm never going to get to. The end of the story starts to go very very fast. George really picks up speed because I was worn out. Besides I had a deadline and I had an editor saying I have to have it next week. You I can't give you any more time. The second I will has come out. And that is Written by Stephen Mark Rainey and Elizabeth Massie and it is. It's called Dreams of the dark. And it's about a new vampire at Collard won a rival for Barnabus with Vicky. So what these are original stories based upon the actual dark shadows characters but the completely new stories. I think for fans it just be a delightful adventure king new acquaintance with all the magic. They remember that where it's not necessary to even have seen dark shadows to enjoy these novels because they have all the meat and the tension and the thrilling characters of the series. But you don't have to known them to enjoy the books because they have independent plots and their gothic romances which is a huge genre. Very well-selling pointed I gothic romance. Well raw television on on Yeah soap opera. Yeah yes we got to play many different roles we got to. Ap will probably was killed off. I would come back in a few months. Either as a reincarnation of my character or is it completely different? Character time shifting. Yeah President President. In fact even we got confused. We got into parallel time. You never knew which side of the door you were on that day or the stairway whatever it is that led you into the in parallel time. Everyone played a different character but they look just like themselves story. Pleasure thank you so much. My life was definitely enriched by meeting two of my idols from dark shadows. The lovely Lara Parker and Kathryn. Leigh Scott Fantastic. Ladies Really Classy Ladies. The entire collection has been released on. Dvd of the original series in a coffin shaped box. Of course an an sadly Jonathan who was born of his collins recently passed away one of my all time favorite vampires. The tortured Barnabus came to life because of this act..
