All right, we're talking with Navy veteran Noah Glanville, founder of Pit Barrel Cooker Company. Noah, thanks for being here today. Looking forward to hearing all the good things you're doing with your company, and of course every barbecue is one of my favorite things, so I really want to hear about that. Before we get started, take us back, tell us what you did in the Navy. Thanks, Joe. I appreciate you having me on. I was a Navy corpsman with the Marine Corps. Had the pleasure of serving with, for most of my career, 1st Battalion, 5th Marines, and it was some of the best and worst years of my life, for sure, but mostly because of combat. But, you know, an amazing journey and made some really good friends, lifelong friends. Yeah. How many years were you in the Navy? Six years, and pretty much all six years were with the 1st Marine Division. Yeah, wow. Game on from the get -go, huh? How many deployments? I was overseas, I went, deployed to East Timor, that was kind of the first little conflict we were a part of, and that was, gosh, I guess, 1999. Iraq, And then and then got out and, I guess, still had a desire to go back over and then went to work for Blackwater, and that's a whole other chapter of my life. Oh, yeah. Wow. Okay. Awesome. Well, talk about your transition out of the Navy. Was it planned? Did you have a lot of preparation ahead of time, or did you prepare, or was it just something that happened real quick for you? I think that I was ready to get out, but I wasn't quite sure what the long -term effects or short -term effects were of PTSD, and I talk openly about it because I think it's important. I knew I wanted to get out, and I was kind of always an entrepreneur at heart. I always had a lot clearing business or weed eating or something going on when I was little, and realized from a young age that I wanted to bid on the job or I wanted to kind of be my own boss and have more control. When I got out, I had started a mobile auto detail in Orange County, and it was doing pretty good. And then the ordinance said that you can't have any water go down the drain, and so that made it very difficult to have a mobile auto detail and wash cars and not have water go down the drain. So we dealt with mats and things to try to retain the water, and nothing was very efficient. And so I got out and then went to work for a company called Extra Lease. And that was a big Berkshire Hathaway company, big corporation, and I did well on that. I moved up through the ranks, if you will, pretty quick, became an operations manager. But was it a great experience, but I believe that that was something that it was just one more underline of you need to do something, you need to start a business. And ultimately, my wife and I, we decided to come out with a product and go all in with it, and we definitely have, and that's the pit bra cooker today. And so you had never produced a product or sold a product before, but your first idea, the pit barrel cooker, is what you're still selling today. It is, and that's actually the way you frame it up is kind of an interesting lens to look through, because never having an idea of retail. And not only did we go into the retail business, but we jumped in head first and touched every aspect of business and trade, from negotiating the raw material good to the trip that it takes importing it into the United States. We export, we ship all over the world to different distributors. But then once it gets here, the marketing, the development, the operations, logistics, wholesale, retail, distributor model, everything, dealing with the buyers, we handle all of it to the customer service, to it ending up on the consumer store. Yeah. What a learning curve that's been. How long have you been, when was the first idea, the pit barrel cooker? I would say it was right around early 2010, 2009. Oh, okay. I And when started, when my goal, excuse me, I was contracting for Blackwater at the time and overseas, and I thought I was saving my money to go to culinary school. I always loved to entertain and thought I want to open up a restaurant. And everyone said, that's probably the worst way to go, or the easiest way to go broke rather. And they're probably right. And so I said, well, what is it about entertaining and food and cooking that really intrigues me? And that's just the act in doing it. And I could cook anything on a hibachi or any kind of grill, but I thought if we could take the guesswork out and truly make something that's affordable, that we're not gouging the customer and is simple. And our product, I really truly believe is, and if we could do that, maybe we really have something and possibly put some intellectual property behind it and really increase the quality with the coating so it lasts.
Fresh update on "orange county" discussed on The Breakdown with Bethany
"Yeah, that makes a lot of sense, and I would also just love to switch gears for a little bit, if that's OK. I mean, you sort of famously took a break from work to raise your children. And there's a lot of conversations around that now, like that, that being actually really brave and, you know, and then like, how are women and especially coming off of the pandemic, which was so unkind to moms. I would love to hear from you about sort of what it looks like, sort of re-emerging back to work a little bit more, being able to pursue those passions and, you know, any advice you have for mothers who are interested in doing the same. It's really hard because it's a win win situation and it's a no win situation. I have been working since I was four years old and I had waited to be a mom and, you know, my job involves travel. It involves really, really long hours. It involves missing a lot of things because there's 400 people on a set and I can be like, oh, my son has a presentation of a science project. I'm going to leave for two hours. Right. Where maybe someone that has an office job can maybe clear their calendar on that day. And so for me, it was a really tough decision because it was all I ever knew. But it was something that was important to me. On that same tip, you never know when you go back if there's still a place for you. Right. Maybe people have moved on and you've lost that place. And so I've been very fortunate again that there's been a place for me wanting to come back. And, you know, what I realized is that it's also important to show your kids that you have a life separate from them and that you have passions and that, you know, my job is not just on the weekends to shuttle you everywhere. Maybe I wanted to do something and I'm entitled to that. And I think I had a lot of that mom guilt early on of like I had to do for them. You know, I can't tell them they can't go to this Halloween festival because I don't want to drive to Orange County. I'll just drive back and forth four times. And now I've come to a place where I'm like, OK, you know what? It's OK sometimes just to not want to give them everything. But. It's finding that balance. Yeah. And, you know, also you've you've you've shown us here in this conversation that you're doing such a fantastic job empowering them with financial literacy. What are some other ways that you are empowering your kids and other facets of their life? I think the biggest important thing that we always stress is communication and that we are safe people to talk to, that we are not going to judge, you know, unless it's dangerous, obviously. And it's OK. So maybe something you want to talk to mom about, maybe something you want to talk to dad about. That's OK if it's only one of us. But we just want to be that safe space where you can talk and we will answer your questions. And again, that's because you don't want them learning stuff from the Internet. I think, you know, even with all the stuff going on in the world, you know, I realized my son had had covid that week and he wasn't at school. And I was sending him back to school. And I went, wait, these are conversations I haven't had with him yet. And I, you know, explained on a very simple level to him what he needed to know. And the one thing I said to him is I said, you know, please, if you hear anything, you have any questions, please don't Google it. Please don't look it up. Please come to me. Your dad, your grandma, whoever those people close to you and ask those questions, because there's so much that these kids learn from the Internet. And it's not necessarily the information that's correct. It's not the information that they need. And so I think that's been the biggest lesson we've learned. OK, and then just to wrap things up, I mentioned I have an 11 year old who will be turning 12 in March, but I am really starting to like, I don't know if I'm getting eased into those teen years or like really sort of like slamming me in the face. But I would love just like any advice or stuff that you've learned about raising teens, it is to me, I'm sort of finding it more pivotal than that newborn to toddler stage from toddler to kindergarten. This really is like they're coming into their own and, you know, with the phone, with social media, with money. So what advice do you have for parents who are feeling like incredibly unprepared? Right. You mean like myself? The biggest lesson that my husband always says to me that I have to work on. I'll talk about what I'm actively working on in myself is remembering to not take it personally, that there are hormones going through their bodies. They have so much coming at them. We didn't have as much coming at us. You know, there weren't these screens and information and everything wasn't so almost manic. And sometimes they lash out and and that's what they need. And there's a place where it becomes inappropriate and where you say you may not speak to me like that. I'm your parent. But sometimes the other thing I've learned is I have to stop trying to solve everything and let them experience life and make mistakes and figure it out and say, gosh, I'm really sorry. That that sucks. That's really hard. And, you know, have them learn those lessons. Yeah, sometimes taking a step back right is like a little bit better than digging in. I totally, totally get that. Sarah, Michelle, thank you so much for the time. This has really been such a great experience for me to get to sit down virtually with you. So I really do appreciate it. Thank you. I wish you all the best. You have a teen boy or girl? I have two boys, so easier, easier. All right. I'm going to hold you to that. I'm going to find I promise you boys are harder when they're younger. All right. All right. Well, thank you. Thank you again so much. Absolutely. Have a great day.
A highlight from Encore of Episode 2: Jon Cassie: Game-Based Learning
"Hey, it's Batsheva. I've pulled this episode out of the archive vault for you, in case you hadn't heard it before. But if you have already heard it, well, you might want to listen again because this time you'll know all the answers to the 5 -Minute Game Show. And also because there's always something to learn from my wonderful guests. With the exception of adding this intro, I'm bringing you the original episode in its original form, which is also kind of a time capsule. So enjoy. The Arting Institute presents Overthrowing Education with your host, Batsheva Frankel. Today's episode is sponsored by Edu Game -o -rama! My students are so bored. I've tried to pepper my lectures with jokes, funny PowerPoints, and once I even tap danced throughout my class. The students just complained of headaches. I'm not the best tap dancer, as it turns out. What can I do to engage my students more? You need to change your bored students into board game students. What do you mean? Why sounding deep male voice? I mean, it's time to get with the 21st century. It's time for Edu Game -o -rama! Ed? The Guru -Lama? Uh, no. Edu Game -o -rama! It's the quick acting wand that you wave over your lessons and turn them into critical thinking games and student -centered gamified learning activities, guaranteed to engage even the most disaffected student. Is that all it takes? Just a wave of the Edu Game -o -rama wand? Well, that and a lot of creativity and work on your part. I'll do it. I'm saying goodbye to frontal teaching and hello to giving my students a deeper understanding and more engaging experiences. Edu Game -o -rama! Order your wand today! Side effects of Edu Game -o -rama may include complete student engagement and deeper learning. Thank you for joining us here at the Arte Institute for Overthrowing Education, a humorous and helpful podcast for positive change. I'm your host, Batsheva Frankel. In today's episode, Game Changers, I interview games and gamification expert John Cassie. In our conversation, we reveal lots of tips and tools to inspire educators to integrate this engaging pedagogical approach. If you are a student who loves games or just wants a more hands -on and fun way to learn, pass this episode on to your teachers. At the end of my talk with John, I subject him to our five -minute game show, of course. And then, for our segment, In the Trenches, with real teachers and students telling their stories, we have a really special treat. Educator and professional storyteller, Mikayla Bly, tells her hilarious award -winning tale about her gamified curriculum. Give a listen. You won't be sorry. But before we get into all that good stuff, I want to answer a question I've heard quite a bit since starting this podcast. What exactly is the Arte Institute? Because we always start the show with the Arte Institute presents Overthrowing Education. So let me tell you. About seven years ago, I started teaching at this amazing school called Arte Preparatory Academy in Los Angeles. I immediately connected in an educationally philosophical way with the head of Arte Prep, Jim Hahn. We constantly geeked out over the best and most engaging practices, ideas and approaches. And we worked with the faculty to keep making the school better and better. But Jim and I have another broader goal, which is to help all educators, students and parents understand what great education could and should be. And thus, the Arte Institute was founded. To learn more about it and about Arte Preparatory Academy, find links at overthrowingeducation .com. And now here we go. Today on Overthrowing Education, my guest is John Cassie, who I first met after I read his book, Level Up Your Classroom, The Quest to Gamify Your Lessons and Engage Your Students. It was such a great book. So I checked his website, which is, by the way, johncassie .com, and I read his educational philosophy and I immediately knew that we would be friends and that we had to work together. So more on that in a minute. So first, I'm going to tell you about John. He's been a teacher and education leader since 1997 at independent schools in Dallas, Los Angeles, Pittsburgh and in Orange County, the one in California. He is currently director of innovation at TVT Community Day School in Irvine, California. And in his very cool job, he collaborates with teachers and learners to use data to improve instruction and develop curriculum in STEAM, design thinking, digital literacy, maker informed methods and, of course, gamified learning, which is one of the things we're going to talk about today. He's also traveled extensively to speak and consult on curriculum design, program development, game based learning and gamification and education, as well as GLBTQ issues in independent schools. So he's done a lot of really great stuff. John is also the founder of Game Level Learn, which also, by the way, has a great educational podcast. So make sure to give that a listen. And last November, Game Level Learn teamed up with us at the Arte Institute to present the first annual Game Level Learn Con for educators. It was an amazing day of professional development and a lot of fun. So if you want information on Game Level Learn Con 19, check out either gamelevellearn .com or thearteinstitute .org for details. Wow, that was a lot of introduction, but he was well worth it. Hi, John. Hi, Beth. How are you? I'm good. I have so many questions for you and so many things I want to discuss because I love speaking with you about education. Same. And you're so passionate and have so many great experiences. So first, I want to find out how did you get involved in education to begin with? It's the only thing I've ever wanted to do. I've never had any career goals that were not well for about six months. I thought about hotel and travel administration, like doing a business degree, but that's better left for an entirely different podcast. Yeah, things we're glad you didn't do. Yeah, right, right. So I've always wanted to be in education. I thought for the longest time that I'd be in a university setting. But as it became clear that the university setting was really much more about research and less about teaching, that didn't feel quite like the right fit for me as much as being in there, working with teachers, teaching and learning and innovating on teaching and learning practice, which has always been something that's driven me. So I hear that I find the same. And so I'm glad you did take that route led to some great stuff. So let's I want to jump right in and talk about the difference between games and gamification, because I love them both. I use them both. And I think there are many ways to use both in a class, but I think a lot of people don't really understand the difference. So let's talk about that. Yeah, it can be a little tricky when you're getting into this particular method to to fully grasp what's being talked about. Right. A game based learning environment is an environment where you're taking some kind of a game that has been published or designed as a game, which means that it's got a set of rules and there are ways to win. And it's meant to be entertaining and enlightening and a mental challenge and all of that. But it's in the service of playing the game. It's in the service of the game's rule set. There are plenty of games that exist that you could use very productively in a classroom setting, play the game as designed, and you actually could get an executed learning objective out of it. Before you continue, I want you to give a few examples of those. And then after you talk about gamification, I'm going to talk about the third category, which I call deeper learning games, which I'll explain. That's that's my jam. So everybody tell what are some games, like if I'm a history teacher or I'm a science teacher or something, what are some games like out of the box games that might be really cool that you can think of? So just a couple that come to mind. There's a game that was published and I'm talking only in the tabletop space. I'm not talking about video games. There's nothing wrong with video games. They're dynamite. You know what? I'll raise one just to give the example. OK, but I talk more about tabletop because it's a little bit more accessible. Right. I think one example is a game called Codenames. Codenames is a game about vocabulary pattern recognition. So you are giving if you're giving clues, you're looking at a grid of words, five by five. So twenty five words and you've got a little card in front of you that tells you which words of those twenty five. You're responsible for getting your team to guess the team that wins is going to have a clue giver who's able to look at the words and say, OK, well, if I say the word Jupiter three, they're going to pick these three words because they all have some kind of a connection to that word Jupiter. Right. Or, you know, sunshine, too, or whatever. You know, it's like I think sunshine connects to two words. So you're going to tell people that now that's dynamite for vocabulary building, because if you can make analogies and connections between words, not only do you understand the word on its surface level, but you understand it on a more abstract level. Right. So for, you know, all those people doing vocabulary building, anything in your discipline that has vocabulary building within it, you just pull the codenames words and proceed. Right. There's another great game called Machi Koro. That one I haven't heard of. Yeah. Machi Koro is a game about community building. So what you do is you have a little pool of money and you use that pool of money to buy increasingly complex buildings that you use to form a town. And the town, by virtue of what you choose to build, generates revenue based on how other players act and on die rolls that you make and what have. But it's a really nice, easily accessible game to understand how communities are built. That's great. Yeah. A game that I use in my entrepreneurship class called Letters from Whitechapel is a collaborative game where one character plays Jack the Ripper. Right. So it's a it's a high school thing. Right. And everyone else plays police trying to find him. Jack moves around the board using a game mechanic called hidden movement. So the Jack player is writing where he is on a piece of paper behind a screen. The police are investigating across the board, trying to find evidence of where he was. They can make an arrest if they arrest. They declare an arrest action on Space 28. If Jack is in Space 28 when they arrest, the players win. Now, I use that to teach collaboration because the game is so perfect. It's such a pure example of a cooperative, collaborative game that the only way that you can win really is to have effective collaborative team practices. And businesses that have those are more effective than businesses that don't. And learning environments that have those are more effective than ones that don't. And so since collaboration is such a central skill in entrepreneurship and certainly it's certainly important everywhere else. But in entrepreneurship, it's critical. It's a great way right out of the box to teach that skill. So games like those are examples, right? Codenames, great in a middle school setting. Machi Koro, totally playable in upper elementary. Letters from Whitechapel, you want to play it in a high school environment. And, you know, if you go to gamelevellearn .com, I've written about 50 essays looking at the different kinds of game mechanics that exist in games. And giving you the top five, what I think of the top five games in each of those mechanics. So if you wanted to do something that was about collaboration, you could just go to the site, look at the essay on collaboration. Pick one of those games and you'd be good to go. Yeah, I have to say that your website is just full of resources and it's a great thing to check out again. For people that's gamelevellearn .com. That's the games. Yeah, it's game based. That's game based. I want you to talk about gamification, which I also have been using more and more in my classroom. I've done some really cool stuff with my honors English Shakespeare class, history classes. It's great. So tell me about it. Now, gamification is a term used to describe the application of game elements like game mechanics or reward systems or winning or, or, or, where they're not strictly speaking incorporated into a game itself. A classroom gamified uses the procedural tricks that make games fun to play in the service of making learning more engaging, more social, more collaborative or more critically focused, depending on what your objective is. And, you know, in the book and, you know, level up your classroom, I go on at length about different ways to do that. But the idea here is take a game that's fun to play and look at how mechanically the game works. Then strip away the game content, leaving only the game's engine. From there, insert your content into the game's engine and away you go. It's great. And it really does help engage students. And you can use those mechanics to go to deeper places. It isn't about doing the Jeopardy board answer thing. It's about really using the mechanics to move the curriculum forward. That's right. Yeah, it has to be in service of a learning objective, right? This is one of the things that I say and, you know, my co -host on the Game Level Learn podcast, we say all the time, we make two points. One, this is not about the game. It's about the learning objective. The learning objective might be serviced by an environment that is either collaboratively or individually competitive or where the kind of leveling character development concept that you get in some board games and you get in some video games would be useful. Then deploy them because they're going to make the learning better. If they're not going to do that, do something else. And that's I think sometimes folks bogged down there. The second thing we say is, quote, play all the games. Because if you're going to do this effectively, the more games you have yourself played, the more different engines and mechanics you will have encountered. And therefore, you'll be able to say, I see for this learning objective, I really want to bring in a tile building mechanic like in Spring Meadow. OK, I can do that. Or I really need to build sort of these interesting decks of cards for players, player learners, like in the game Dominion. But if you've never played Dominion, you'd never have the idea, which is one of the things that I think sometimes trips people up. They hear game based learning or they hear gamification. They think what we're talking about is a slightly more sophisticated version of Jeopardy or Monopoly or Sorry. Or Chutes and Ladders. Well, you know, if the only poetry you've ever read is a Mother Goose fable, why do you think that you would be able to use it in any kind of meaningful way? No. Read more poetry and you'll be able to do more poetry. You know, if this is something that's of interest to you, but you're not a gamer, go to and go anywhere. There's plenty of game cafes. There are game days and libraries. There are friendly local game stores everywhere, and most of them are full of really keen, friendly people. And if you went up and said, hey, I'm trying to learn some things, anything you can teach me, there's always going to be dozens of people in those places who are like, absolutely. Come on in. Let me teach you this thing. Let me teach you this. Let me teach you this. Right. And, you know, as you learn different kinds of games, you'll know what you want to pick up next or what you want to borrow next or what you want to buy next. And that's how it goes. It's really true. One of the games that's my biggest seller that I created that's called Feed Your Wolves. I was inspired because I saw a lot of the students at my school every morning. I'd come in and they'd be playing these games like Magic the Gathering and games like that that involve interesting cards and die and things that they had to do. And so I was very inspired to create my game sort of based on some it's not like those, but it was definitely inspired by those. And that's the thing. Let yourself be inspired by what you see that your students are interested. What games are they really interested in and let that inspire. I wanted to talk about deeper learning games because that's my as you know, that's my thing. And deeper learning games are games that can be used as assessments. They can be used as part of a project based learning unit. But the idea behind a deeper learning game is that it's really a sophisticated critical thinking type of a game. It's not again, it's not Jeopardy or the whatever version of Candyland. It is, for example, a way to express an idea. So, for instance, in my school, we were doing something about political philosophies. And the students had to create a game that in every way, including the pieces in the way, if it was a board game or whatever the mechanics of the game were, every part of it had to somehow reflect whatever that political philosophy was or the specific topic within that political philosophy that they chose to do. And the playing of that game, when people would come play that game, they could understand what that political philosophy was. Well, you can do that. I've done it on a seventh and eighth grade level. You can do it on a fourth grade level. There's so many ways to adapt that kind of idea once one gets the hang of it. And you can teach your students how to create this kind of deep game where every part of the process is reflecting, like you said, that whatever that big idea is, whatever the learning objectives are, whatever the people who do understanding by design, whatever understanding during is, those are the things that are so meaningful. And then students remember them. I have students come up to me that I had 20 years ago saying, do you remember that game? Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Of course I remember that game. They did. So do I. It was great. So those are the things that really kids get so involved in their education. And again, they can be used as a really authentic assessment. It can also be used as a tool for project based learning to actually move your curriculum forward. So great ways to use them. And anybody who wants more details about that can certainly contact me on that one. If you want to come to our Game Level Learn Con 19, then you can certainly learn more about it and we'll have information about that again. So, OK, I know kind of the moment in my teaching early on in my career when I realized how games and gamification could be so effective. Was there a moment or was there something that happened in your career where you were like, oh, my gosh, this is totally the way to go? I mean, I think it's sort of like my sense of wanting to be in this career from the start anyway. It's very much the same from the earliest days of my teaching career. I've always incorporated role playing elements or game elements or different kinds of game mechanics into what I was doing and have continued to do so. You know, ever since, as I become more and more kind of aware of game spaces and what what different games are and what they can do, how they can teach us, et cetera. Yeah, I think it's always been a factor to your point about students coming back and talking to you years after in my very first year of teaching. I played a game with some students called Shape Land, which was about the creation of an industrial class structure and how wealth is distributed in an industrial system unfairly. It concentrates wealth in the hands of people who already had wealth to begin with. And students come back to me, you know, even now, say that was one of the most extraordinary experiences I've ever had playing that game. And, you know, that was more than 20 years ago. So I want to add to the mix of other kinds of games. One of the things I did early on in my career was I used to create these crazy game shows and the students loved them. You know, they all wanted to take turns being the guests and the participants, but they also gave them stuff to do as a studio audience that they had to participate and pay attention. And it was always so much fun. And then the other thing that I did with games is simulations. Sure, sure. They're really moving through space. I mean, there was one where we took over. We didn't take over the school, but we used a lot of the school space in this incredible simulation that was for history class. And it was very moving and really effective. So those are also different kinds of ways that people can use to add games. For sure. Yeah. I did something like that early in early days, a simulation about Salem. And I sort of set up the playing space, which was an external, like a field like Salem town, so that folks knew where they were living in comparison to other people who were accusing or being accused. Wow. Right. Because one scholar, you know, on the Salem hysteria says it really has a lot to do with folks who are part of an in -crowd and in -groups and out -groups. And so that was fascinating.
Fresh update on "orange county" discussed on The Hugh Hewitt Show: Highly Concentrated
"All right. My number is 1-800-520-1234, 1-800-520-1234. How deep is the rot in America? Those are random people who happen to go to an Oakland city council meeting because the Oakland city council was doing performance theater at the local level. It's like summer stock and way out of the place, like Packard Music Hall in Warren, Ohio, where we used to get Paul Lin playing Fagan and Oliver Twist, right? Bad theater with one name. There were no names. We didn't even have a Paul Lin here last night. I believe it's a canary in the coal mine. That level, they're not students, all right? Stupid students running around campuses threatening Jewish students is something that was sad enough. But that level of ignorance and misinformation tells me that our minds are being poisoned by propaganda. And we've got to do something about that. While we get phone calls from you, 1-800-520-1234.

I beat him here. I came from DC, and I actually got here before he did, and he came from Orange County, California. And he took eight hours to drive what is essentially a three-hour drive. And so what were you stopping and go to the Grand Canyon on your way here? Well, the factual part of the statement you just made was that we're both here. Now everything else beyond that is nonsense, of course. Let me ask you about dinner last night because my PhD, weightloss.com, is a sponsor. So I was keeping an eye on the scalloped potatoes because I had a very straight-up Caesar salad and a filet. We were at the Capitol Grill in Scottsdale, and it's a wonderful place to eat. And so I had my filet, no side dishes, and scalloped potatoes never made it past you. That's not true. No, I just saw them. They stopped dead, and then they were gone. Now I might have missed someone getting a scoop, but they were all gone, and the broccoli was untouched.

We also talked with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who's been at the fair for hours. He's going to hit all 99 counties. This team tells me here in the state of Iowa, that's and one of the things he believes sets him apart as a candidate. One of the other reasons is that there is a plane flying around that a has banner on it that says, Hey, be more likable. Ron has asked him, do you feel like you're a likable candidate? He said, I've been out here on the ground talking with people. I think I'm connecting great with them. And he thinks Iowa voters really like him. The other candidates we talked about include here Vivek Ramaswamy, Nikki Haley, and they all are talking about how likability is a big factor, walking around, flipping those pork chops and being in Midwest is so much different than some of these other campaign events. That's what could set them apart. really It be a make or break moment. Fox's Alexis McAdams reporting from Des Moines. The Eiffel Tower Paris in was evacuated twice on Saturday due to bomb threats.

A highlight from 110: Part 1: Ryan Steck is a Spy - The Real Book Spy
"Ola, ola, ola, amigos, amigos, players, playwrights, dududettes, everybody in between, welcome back to episode 110. The 110th ongoing attempt to remove us from podcast land has failed. I can say, I'm not impressed with us, but I'm impressed we're still on the air, I have to say that. We're like cockroaches, Murph, we can survive a nuclear blast, we're still here. Turn the light on, we'll scurry away, but we're coming back. We're coming back, all right. Speaking of coming back, hey guys, glad that you came back to listen to us. Hey, you know something I keep forgetting to say, but just, you know, no matter what podcast platform you're on, hit that subscribe button so that it automatically downloads into your feed so you can hear us, hear the stories that are going to come out of this.

But after reading what happens on some of those boats, I don't think I want to go out in the ocean anymore. Speaking of the upcoming guest, we won't give it away, but we will say that it was another series was made out of this person, this author's books. A popular series too. Very popular series. One of the longest running series on one of the networks. And so this will be fun. But anyway, let's get rid of, but we started off with the housekeeping.

We'll talk about that because he's got a book coming out called The Deadly Path. It's about Operation Fast and Furious. And guess who got to write the forward for that book? Well, somebody who knows how to write would probably be Connie. You probably dictated to her. Well, fortunately we had Grammarly. There you go.

I don't know if you saw that Murph, but a Seminole County detective has been arrested for notifying targets child of solicitation stings. Yeah, and these were people who were soliciting. No children were involved. No children were harmed in the actual making of the arrest, but he was notifying them about through encrypted apps or other stuff, notifying the targets. Hey, this is a setup. Don't show up. You know what? This coming Tuesday, next week, I'm going to the board meeting for the Orlando Police Foundation, which is not only Orlando PD, but it's also Osceola County, Orange County and Seminole County.

But now, quick disclaimer. This is a show about crime. We talk about bad people doing bad things and bad people doing bad things to good people. We take the story seriously. But what Murph? If you haven't figured it out yet, we never take ourselves serious. Except maybe on Patreon. We get a little, we get on our soap boxes occasionally there. Yeah, we do. And there's some comments about that. So I'll have to tell you about it later. Oh, but hey, but in the meantime, you know what time it is, right? Guess what time it is? Let me ask you, guess what time it is? What, guess what time it is? I bet it's time for small town police blood. Bonanza. All right. Hey, Murph, have you ever been in a sticky situation in an investigation? Oh, yeah, but you weren't in this sticky situation. You mean literally or figuratively? Police in Pasadena, Texas are on the lookout. A 12 -year -old girl told KHOU -TV that she was shopping at a drugstore last week when she felt a wad of something sizzling in her ponytail. It turned out to be glue. So they have a sticky, you know, have a sticky investigation going on. The sticky bandits have attacked. Not only that, she had to cut off some of her hair. Managers say another customer had glued sprayed onto her earlier at the same drugstore and they're investigating a similar incident at a nearby grocery store. Why the hell would you go around spraying glue in people's hair? You're the sticky bandit. That means, remember the wet bandits from Home Alone? These guys are the sticky bandits. Oh, that's just so nasty to even be called that. Well, unlike that lady who thought Gorilla Glue was like a way to keep her hair. Remember that one? She put Gorilla Glue. It will keep your hair. It will, but folks, oh my God. But this was funny, Steve. I got these out of the Bristol Herald Courier out of Bristol, Tennessee. I thought, let me go to kind of a smaller area, you know, get some stuff. So that was one story, Steve. Here's another story. This comes out of Iowa City, Iowa. So, you know, people rob banks for the strangest things, right? A 19 year old North Liberty man used cash stolen at a bank robbery to play for a bond. He had on an outstanding warrant. The only thing that will make it better is if it had the explosive dye. Oh my God, he gave it to the police department. He was charged. Police charged Charles Curry with first degree bank robbery after the robbery of the American Bank and Trust. Curry cased the joint out by talking with the teller and leaving a second man armed with a handgun, then robbed the bank. Police say Curry used bank money to pay a bond for an outstanding theft charge at the Johnson County Jail, then went shopping at a Walmart and Gordon's department store. All I can say is, Curry, you're an idiot. He was taken to jail. There's a, there's an understatement. But hey, I got, I got to end up with this one. You ever had, remember all these things where people go hold my beer? Oh, yeah. Yep. This one comes from Bergetstown, Pennsylvania, population 1 ,425. Salute. The population makes a difference because we're going to get into the structural integrity of the holding cell. That Bonner Timothy was placed in. He was, he was arrested, taken to this holding cell, had his handcuffs removed. They shut the door, went off. That's when he knocked the cell door off its hinges and ran away. Now, what did he do? He stopped at a house, borrowed shoes, and then he went to a bar where he told a customer that, yeah, I just broke out of jail. Can I have a beer? The guy hold the beer, but before he could drink it, he goes, oh, hold my beer. Here's the police. The police came in and arrested him. Dang. How did he knock the door off the hinges? I'm telling you, some of these old places, it's like, it's more like having a fence, you know, you know, fences keep, you know, make good neighbors, you know, blocks keep honest people on us. But, you know, it's just, it was more the, you know, just like a Captain Jack Sparrow in Paris in the Caribbean. It's all about leverage. That's the day you almost caught Captain Jack Sparrow. Yeah, but he used leverage to pry that door off its hinges. Oh, my God. Okay. That's, there's a good, hey, hold my beer. I'm going to jail. Again. Again. Well, hey, speaking of fun stuff, I don't, I'm trying to figure out a good segue into this. This one, I get the intro because this guy I know, this guy actually has something in common with one of our other guests. Yes. Sherry Foster. And Sherry, if you're listening, tick tock, tick tock, I will get my book into him before you do, and I will be declared the winner. So this young man, and I say young man, he's got six kids. Oh, my God. He's been busy with everything. I don't know when he's had time to have six kids as busy as he is writing and editing books. But Ryan's - I wonder if there's a milk man in his neighborhood. Sorry, Ryan. Sorry, DNA tests are in your future, pal. So no, no, no, his wife's great. We don't want to make any insinuate, any insinuate, almost insinuations like that. Anyway, but let's get back to the case in chief. So, but, you know, many of you may not know who Ryan Steck is. You may have heard of big names like Jack Carr, Brad Thor, people writing thrillers. Well, not only is he the real book spy, if you go to therealbookspy .com, that is him. Ryan Steck, besides being my development editor and Sherry's development editor, guess who, you know, who asked him for recommendations and who's asked him to review their books? Jake Tapper, Bret Baier. He has got a list of celebrities and people, as long as my arm, of people that he's worked with, people that he's helped, people that are coming to him to say, hey, take a look at my book. And you got, so you're about to say something there, Murph. Hey, I've got, so I've got him pulled up on my laptop here as you're talking and he is, he's on his blog or whatever it is, YouTube. I'm not sure what you call it here. Twitch, yeah. Guess who he's talking to? Brad Thor, the author. Brad Thor, the author. How about that? He gets him on Twitch. Actually, I was supposed to be on that Twitch session, but yeah, Ryan is like, he's one of those unique people that has figured out how this thing works. Now you're going to ask, why do we have this author on? Well, for two reasons. Number one, his new book, Lethal Range is coming out. His initial book, his debut book was called Fields of Fire, a Matthew Redd thriller. So Matthew Redd is a Marine Raider. Now you hear a lot about Navy Seals, Delta Rangers, but nobody's ever had a book with a Marine Raider in it, you know? What do you call him, Marsoc? Marsoc, yeah, Marine Special Operations Command, I believe, Marsoc, yeah. And so he's got, so he had a, not only did he have a debut book, he's been helping people. Finally, all these guys are saying, write your own damn book, dude. So he did. So he got a contract for two books and a novella, which we'll talk about the novella. But his new book is, as we drop this episode, as you're listening to this today, his new book, Lethal Range comes out. And if I was just reading, just the quick thing from Lethal Range, let me just read you the intro. This is what Lethal Range is. On an island off the coast of Spain, Matthew Redd and his FBI fly team surveil a luxury villa in hopes of catching a high value fugitive. But when Redd leads an unauthorized raid on the villa, he discovers they've been set up and he is sent home to face the consequences of defying orders. Now, meanwhile, Redd's family, Emily, is on a remote stretch of Montana road driving their sick baby to the doctor when she finds her SUV surrounded by a biker gang. Intent on harassing her as they pound her fenders and infant sun screams, Emily fights to keep the FQB on the road. And then suddenly the bikers back off, leaving her safe but shaken. But when Redd returns home, Murph, he's suspended from his team and certain that he's to blame for Emily's harassment after his run -in with the local biker gang. So what does he do? He does what any guy does. He goes to war.

"New York City will send migrants upstate to deal with the influx. The mayor's office says about 60,000 asylum seekers have come to the city since last spring, and this latest plan calls for up to 300 single men to be bused on a volunteer basis to hotels in rockland and orange counties.

Ex-Disney employee allegedly shot videos up women's skirts
"A gift shop worker at Disney's Hollywood studios theme park in Florida, who was arrested for taking videos under women's skirts, says he's done that hundreds of times. Police say 26 year old Jorge Diaz Vega was arrested in late March, a witness reported seeing the suspect, recording a video up the skirt of an 18 year old customer at the Star Wars gift shop where he worked at Hollywood studios. Diaz Vega is charged with just one felony count of video voyeurism, but Orange County sheriff's detectives say he's confessed. Admitting he's done it more than 500 times in recent years showing them examples on his cell phone and admitting to taking the videos for a quote guilty pleasure. Disney World says Diaz Vega no longer works for the company. I'm Jackie Quinn
No More Corporate Rule in Florida!
"No corporations should be running their own world. They all have free speech rights, and I am a big believer in citizens united. And Disney can strike back if they want at the governor. I'm pretty sure bob Iger is too smart to do that. And I'm pretty sure, Budweiser and Disney did not intend to be in the middle of political debates, which served neither company, nor was it obligatory to do so, and the phrase screw around and find out that's the PG version is what both of them are finding out. Budweiser in a world of hurt. But let's begin with the opening of the governor's press conference if we can cut number 22 governor Ron DeSantis yesterday on Disney. Now here is an example of something we didn't necessarily think we would be needing to do, but it's something that we have to do. We have a government of laws that said, not a government of men, and that includes the law being superior to big corporations, even corporations, as big and powerful as Walt Disney Company. They are not superior to the laws that are enacted by the people of the state of Florida. And if you remember 2022, we had a special session of the Florida legislature, senator commissioner Simpson was the Senate president at the time, some of these members were there, where we said, you know, this idea of one corporation having its own government in Central Florida is something that is no longer in the best interest of the state of Florida. So we put down the marker that we were going to be going in a different direction. And a lot of people didn't think that would be anything that would even be possible given how much heft and how much power that this one company had withstood. And so my mantra was, you're not going to have Disney have its own government in Central Florida. They're going to live under the same laws as everybody else. Pay their fair share of taxes and honor the debts that they've accumulated over these years. And so we then had to, as we are getting into this calendar year, put the finishing touches on, okay, what does that look like? How do you bring that vision into a reality? And there were certain things you could have done. I mean, for example, could have just said, you know, just dissolve the district and let the local governments take it. The problem with that is like the local government here in Orange County was very clear. If they had to assume the bonds, they were going to raise people's taxes. And that was totally unacceptable. We were not going to make people in Central Florida pay taxes for Disney's debts.
Check Out Barry Meguiar's New Book 'Ignite Your Life'
"Book is ignite your life, I'm speaking with the author Barry Maguire, a dear friend, very, you just shared that, so here you are, and again, there are a lot of people that need to hear this. They think if I'm excited about God, if I'm excited about Jesus, do I have to go into full-time ministry? They have some idea. Yeah. I gotta go. Most people do. Listen, William wilberforce, about whom I write in my book amazing grace. What he got so excited about God, he thought, I guess this means I have to leave politics. And he goes to talk to John Newton, who wrote to him amazing grace and says, what do I do? And John Newton says no. Stay where you are, God will use you in the place that he's already put you. And you're telling me that this happened to you, you're sitting there in your office and this man says, God has given you a great ministry here. I said, why did you say that? Why are you telling me he says, well, a passer could never reach the people you're reaching. But as a businessman, you can and he gave me this line, Eric, in 1976, it's obvious that your business is your pulpit. I said, I got to tell you, I just prayed this prayer, not 20 minutes ago, and he said, oh, that explains it. I said, explains what. He said, I just dropped missionaries over the Orange County airport. I was driving a red hill, which was the closest Main Street to my office. He said, God spoke to me. And said, go see Barry Maguire. And I driven by your office many times. I saw the name of it. I put together that for the church. And I argue the guy I said, I don't know this guy. I'm going to make a fool of myself. And when I walked in your office just now, my heart was beating in my throat. I was so nervous I didn't know what to say, but how's it going? Now, this is also a message on obedience. If he had not been obedient, I would have been a failure as a pastor. I'm a businessman. Because of him, I had stayed the course and got his recipe, but I've then till now I've seen that everything I do is administering quite frankly for all of us right now. All of you, everything you say and do. Is moving everybody watching you closer further away from Jesus.

To Irvine, California, there was a nazarene church down in Orange County where he had to find a church who were hungry for a year, became church buns for a year. God let us into some reason church had we known recently to guide church we would not have gone there because they got that speaking tank saying I knew that was the devil. That kooky stuff. Who needs that stuff? And we walked in so hungry and all of a sudden God just confirmed he walked through the door. We sat there and we were just flooded with the spirit of the lord ministering just we soaked it up at the end of that service. We were introduced to Gwen wilkerson, David wilkerson's wife. What year was this? That was 19 that was September of 1970. Wow. Taking back 50 to 53 years. We met Dave a couple weeks later. We became friends and then for the next 40 years, we traveled with them all over the world, crusades everywhere, I got to tell you for a guy had never seen the move of the Holy Spirit and then being with this prophet who just he was the same off cameras on and he just this godly man.

You guys are the ones who did this last week because there's obviously radicals on both sides of the equation. Everybody can buy a red hat. That's right. How How do you? How do How does the Republican Party go forth? Because you know Democrats, the Democratic Party in Washington gonna be a big, big, indignant how they're gonna feel justified in all of their stuff? Because of the actions of relatively if you get 70 million voters, they were not 70 million people there that you know the setting of voters who voted for Donald Trump. They were not 70 Million people have is that I mean, that's that's gonna be tough one to navigate time. Actually, I don't think selling okay, not an academic discussion because I've already advised On this matter to you know some people of of important second guess At this point, it's about action. The saying they will do something. Look at the number of people disaffected with Washington is higher than ever before the reason Trump was elected with disinfection. With Government invited my poop too Divided. You're a search party's rise from the two parties failed to address issues so that discontent exists. Now, more than ever. The only way for Republicans forward is concrete action on certain subjects that restore Faith in their mission. What up while what are those well within Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania in Georgia, where Republican legislators are Every Republican in the country has to come together and clean up those voting systems in a very transparent way that will help restore faith. But that's action. Not words. I can't just say Oh, don't worry. We're gonna take care of it. No, they have to be very visible about it. We're going to see Joe Biden now and the Democrats go on and anti economic tear. Hi regulations massive spending this time. The other thing Republicans need to look you basic economics in these two administrations. The last one cut taxes and regulations, high job growth. They're going to see the failures of what's going on under Biden, and they need to contrast that an offer alternatives So this is about action. If you want to restore faith leadership is More physical. Then it is words. So so the question is, uh, for me What happened in Georgia? Because you're the foremost un interesting people in the world running Donald Trump cause that that lost No, there's long term factors in there. There are many people have moved to Atlanta area from New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and quite honestly, the voter registration is not the same. There's that ever wasps That's number one number two, they Republican secretary of State broke the law by entering into a consent agreement, which eviscerated the absentee. Palate. Requirement for that state, and that led a cavalcade of ballot absolutely 1000 that that shouldn't have done in the main election. There were 66,000 underaged people that voted 6000. I shouldn't be allowed. There was over 10,000. People have moved out of the state and continued the vote. Even though they're not allowed. That's the kind of thing that needs to be cleaned up. Okay, So let me let me know George is more purple than it was red. Got it? Let me ask you this, though. Wasn't that because that election fraud narrative as true as that may be. I believe Donald Trump to be part complicity for what happened in Georgia because he was beating that drum a day too long when he maybe should have been campaigning in Georgia. Is that not? I mean, you're then that's a guest this from a guy who doesn't have your experience. Um.
