COVID-19 Infections Are Increasing Globally

"Is kind of the pulse of this. Pandemic globally right now alana. Where are we at with infections. Well the big picture of marco is that the world is actually experiencing a steady increase in infections leaders at the. Who again sounded the alarm today. Because it's been seven straight weeks of rising infections actually is some of the highest surges yet in the pandemic and it's been four weeks streep of reisen deaths would areas most impacted. We have a sense of that. So i talked with ali mokdad about this. He's with the institute for health metrics at the university of washington and he's been modeling this pandemic since the start he says what's going on in five regions really stands out so i that is an increase in brazil. That snow started to come down so brazil is the big one. Neighboring countries like argentina and chile are now starting to experience rises to and then here the other hot spots this a big rise which still going on in india pakistan bangladesh at bark that is an increase in europe and the middle east following. What's your doping seeing. That is a. It is in cases in the philippines and that this is in south africa and african country. That's now started to come down so the fact that infections are increasing globally even parts of the us. We don't want to forget that. That really worries him. I mean it sounds like overall the world is just not close to controlling this virus. Do scientists have a handle on why cases continued to rise even with vaccines. Is it now all about the variants. Not points to the variance and lots of scientists do variants like be one one seven have become a dominant in europe and this has been found to be more transmissible. But there's another strong message. I'm hearing from a lot of scientists like angela rasmussen. she's just at georgetown. And as of this month the university of saskatchewan which is that these rises are not just from variants like the breakthrough masking and distancing another really important prevention

"An ongoing presence and back presence could have been used to reach a peace deal where we would know what the conclusion would be for those rights. I mean i will say that even with some kind of power sharing agreement between the taliban and kabul some of those rights would have to be rolled back probably as a taliban asserted its ideology and its beliefs. But you know at least we would know what the outcome is right now. My fear is and others have warned of this as well that have gone enters into some kind of state of protracted violence in civil war. Where you know the the fight goes to its cities which is where Women have seen the most gains and most progress in terms of rights in terms of girls. Going to school. women going to work. And they're they. I face a security threat and second of course if the taliban is able to gain some ascendance there they see all of the progress of the last twenty years being washed away and i think that is a real threat and potentially great cost. I think that will be of great cost. The us which is something that is being disregarded or at least pushed aside are pushed down the horizon in this decision. I think to me this decision. Seems like it's made from kind of a short and medium-term perspective but in the long term. You know there's a real risk that outcomes could go awry because of it and that's not being considered right right. And i definitely i i wanna get into that. You co authored an article. That sort of walked through. Why staying in afghanistan was in your words the least bad choice for the biden administration and you walk through some scenarios of what would happen in afghanistan Us withdrawal some really horrifying scenarios including ethnic cleansing. I was wondering if you could walk. Take us through some of those scenarios. Sure i think you know the first point that my michael author michael hand lenin. I'm meek in that piece. Is that if you our assistance to government forces continues. They will have the wherewithal to maintain the fight with the taliban and went certainly well so they will keep on fighting so who imagine some sort of quick taliban victory over the kabul government and some kind of smooth transition to the taliban being in power. I think our our mistake and so the war will continue and am would say it is likely to move into a goddess san cities as well and given that you know there. There could be some scenarios in which we might see some form of ethnic cleansing where because the taliban are pushtoon the other ethnic groups would want to push them out as they're fighting against the taliban and that could again the recipe for ethnic cleansing. And what you would you might see. There is some kind of partition of off the country that occurs one part of the current gone state that becomes a part that is again friendly to the us and then one part that falls into taliban control and of course then that part would be of threat to us. I think another implication is that this would sort of increased the likelihood that a huge amount of refugees might flow into into pakistan which neighbors of the floors. We've seen this before as we've seen this all play out before in terms of what happened in one thousand nine hundred ninety s where after the soviet role huge amounts of refugees fled into pakistan. Really changing sort of the makeup off pakistan's northwest where you know there was a huge degree of gun culture that came out increased militancy later. And you'll some might argue that you know.

How Chris Wilson Went From Life In Prison To A Life Of Meaning And Purpose

"Chris. Welcome to the unmistakable. Creative thanks so much for taking the time to join us. Thanks for having me. It is my pleasure to have you here. So i actually came across your story up because of an article that you wrote on medium about the books that change your life in prison and i remember reading through that and my first reaction was jesus this guy Learn to speak multiple languages. Read all these books for hey. I went to berkeley. And i didn't do anywhere near that in four years of college So we'll get into that. But i think i want to start with what i think is a fitting question that i tend to ask a lot of people and that is what did your parents do for work. And how did that end up. Impacting the choices that you ended up making throughout your life in your so gr growing up. My mom started her career as a nurse. How after she graduated from college and then she went back to school and she got a couple of certifications became a paramedic and pretty much work in the medical field. Emergency response feel for For like the rest for life and so. My dad was Electrician so he worked for electric company. So that's what they did. What what impacted they end up having you in terms of the direction you end up going well. My mom Had raised me by ourselves because my dad and my mom got divorced when i was eight months. No my father wasn't really a part of my life growing up but the impact of my mom had me is like my mom because she was a paramedic. She worked twelve hour shifts. So i was still with my grandmother Monday through finding a civil my mom on the weekends and so i would. Just kind of like a hybrid. So my grandmother's neighborhood was like a really tough neighborhood. washington dc. This was late eighties early nineties and my mom lived outside of dc maryland. And a pretty like you know. Middle class neighborhood was nice. It was mixed white people black people in everything was like really cool around a but My mom when i had time to spend. What does she instilled in me. A good work ethic entrepreneurship in and being nice and respectful. Mom for the most part at least initially when i was younger mike. Thanks changes certain point. So i wonder what that point changes because i remember you. There's something that you said in the book. And this is one of those things like i. I look at basically took everything that a highlight and underline and put it into a document. But you said you know when you start from a place like division avenue. Life's fragile you don't get to make mistakes because you don't have a safety net but and you know when i when i read that and i was going through the book I remember going to school an probably. What was the worst neighborhood in a place called bryant texas and it was in seventh grade and it was by far the most dangerous area of town and i used to have to stay there late at night because i worked at the university. So it'd be terrified as this seventh grader after basketball practice but i also think that to some degree probably i have certain biases about that neighborhood. Ob just baked into how. I was raised by And so i wonder what about what about those kind of environments. Do you think that we have misperceptions about from you. Know media like my immediate thought was. Oh this is probably just like boys in the hood rob so like how accurate is stuff like that. Well i would look at it differently right a little bit. I would say. I mean you're right in the sense that folks have their biases about Neighborhoods like that. But i think what people don't think about is what would have conditions in policies that will put in place to make these neighborhoods. The waiting. Were you know so like police Name was policed in. You know people just being harassed by the police. That's what happened with. Like when i was growing up. Only come through his jump out. Pakistan folks didn't own a home folks Couldn't get jobs so there was a lot of stuff but these were like based off for policies put in place that kinda like creed atmosphere what he's neighborhoods dangerous so always important for people to remember that So that's something that you know. I don't think people think about no well. I mean you. And i were talking about this before we hit record here I remember dave chapelle talking about you know with your an african american men. Your relationship to law enforcement is fundamentally different than that of other people like you actually have a relationship of fear of the very people who are basically put in society to protect you absolutely absolutely Better than us especially at my neighborhood on weight it was just all black people and so only interaction while white people were police and when they would it would pat down. It wasn't like nice. It wasn't like it would ask. Holiday was so we grew up this way and then when stuck what happened in our neighborhood. I'd say shoot something like that and like folks like neighbors or call the police. It'd take a mike thirty five minutes. Get it twenty. Minutes or maybe. Sometimes they didn't even show up so this was a relationship with them growing up in. So is this like naturally like and then we see people on. Tv shot by police like all the time. So it's something like it's a survival mechanism to just be you know worried police.

"To the big program as i mentioned. It's a an episode of meet the author. Shane wilson is storytelling. No matter the medium. The emphasis of his work is on the magical act of the story and how the stories we tell immortalize us and give us give voice to the abstractions of the human experience. Ladies and gentlemen please open the ears open minds and help me welcome in whoop. Waco shane wilson to the my duck pakistan. Welcome thank you so much. Thanks for being here. Now it's a pleasure so get get me hip two way our way are you are 'cause i'm not sure i know you're a southern guy. Are you giorgia I'm curly in north carolina. You know what i said. That and i don't know why i said that last night but then i was questioning myself. This is why. I asked you this at first up last night. I said it was raised in georgia. Sir right. I read your bio that you i believe born in alabama raising in georgia but i said last night on the air i said i. It's north carolina guy. And then i looked it up today and i was like no. I'm wrong. he's not where they get those carolina from now you just said it. So where did i get it from. It's not online anywhere that fact. I'm getting it actually. You might be psychic. In which case mybookie dot com is definitely a place for you but yeah i mean i feel like somewhere in the bio somewhere in all of the information out there. It probably says that. I teach college in north carolina which is true. Well i did not see. I wasn't aware of that. So you're you what are you. Teaching kalki teach english literature music. I teach composition creative writing that kind of thing very cool stuff so Tell me a little bit about yourself. How how when you kind of got the author bug. We'll start with the author stuff. Then we'll come back to the music little later on but tell me when you when you first realized the way that it should be thing Because i think i've been writing forever I i'd be hard pressed to find a moment in in my life. At least i actually remember when i wasn't writing I remember my parents buying me. An old typewriter When i was just a little kid. And i remember like i would practice spelling on it. i would ask my mom to spell for me like the the most complex words i can think of a kid it was stuff like rhinoceros right and i would ask you to spell it and then i would like pick it out and so i was practicing already getting kind of the bug and then i remember like second grade. I would write these short stories and just handwriting out. I'd put them in a one of those three prong folders and then i would draw cover and glue it on the front Like saw i was already thinking about book design and stuff even though i wasn't cognizant of that right and so yeah like from the from the jump right in has been a part of me and the through. I think the evolution is pretty similar to a lotta guys that are that are writers in that you know middle. School comes along. And now i'm writing poetry in order to hit on girls And the same kind of thing in high school. And then you get when i got into college. The academic spirit kind of squashed some of that creativity as it will do And then on the other side of college. I slowly started to chip away that published some poetry some short stories and then accidentally wrote a novel while There's a lot to respond to their. But i i'm i'm smiling because i thought i'm going to say this now even though i wanted to say this for a little bit later in the conversation but I thought when i saw romance and fantasy stuff betsy kinda stuff that either A guy who's a player trying to impress women or gate would well you know The the romance stuff is is very light. In in most of what i write every now and then i will dip a toe into that sandbox. Because i think and and i don't write traditional romance. When i do that i write stuff that kind of turns genre upside down or i try to. Because ultimately i think romance is kind of trite and empty void of a genre So when i when. I do play over there. I like to to try to get in. Turn it in on itself. A little bit But for the most part the fantasy stuff is it comes from The my academic focus. When i was at school. I studied a ton of magical realism. I had a professor who is very into that genre and sir My master's thesis was on salman rushdie and midnight's children And all that stuff so yeah so like i was reading a ton of magical realism. And so i don't write. What would be considered hard. Fantasy like tolkien. And those guys right fantasy this grounded in our reality but there are magical elements at play.

So i have my own ecommerce store and out of that ecommerce store people were asking me. Hey ben how are you doing this. Can you help me with that. And all that kind of stuff and out of this. I created or found my digital marketing agency so our facebook ads did more than two million dollars for clients in zales with facebook ads but the problem was by selling companies. These facebook ads. They do not only need the facebook ads. they also do need landing pages. They need google ads. they need. We deals for youtube. They need graphics for youtube or graphics for ats graphics for the website. All that kind of stuff. So i was realizing. Hey if you're selling facebook ads. It's a good business. But companies need more. They need a full service solution and they want to have a full service solution because they do not want to have usa facebook guy and another one for google ads and another one to grade sales funnels. They want to have one agency one person to talk about their marketing stuff and outsourced that so by realizing that was thinking about. Hey how can. I build an agency like that. Because i'm only a one man show in the half other businesses to manage. And i'm quite good at facebook ads but i have no idea about google ads or some other stuff like billing websites or developing some stuff stuff like that so i need people for this. Hiring people from my country from germany is quite expensive so if you would hire a designer for example that custody around three thousand dollars a month so basically. It's an euros but yeah three thousand dollars a month. That's quite the same so this was too expensive for me okay. That was just not possible. So i needed to have another solution and then i came on the idea. The possibility to hire people from the overseas from the philippines pakistan india countries. Like that. why. Because these people were a lot of more cheaper than the german guys. So i was starting with that was trying that and some positive experiences some negative experiences but in general it was good in general it was working so i need to find myself a way to find people who are fitting into my company and were having a very high quality and this was the key to build and scale might digital marketing agency. Because as i mentioned i wouldn't have been able to hire three four five german guys. That would be just too expensive. But i was able to hire some people from the overseas so i started with hiring a designer and i would recommend you guys this. Start with hiring a designer. Why because definitely there's no company in two thousand and twenty one who do not need a designer in their company because you have so much posibilities to spread content out there and that's why you definitely need to have a designer but the other advantages that designer does not need to have any log in credentials or access to any sensitive data or something like this you can just give them a few pictures and title or anything like that and tell him hey. Police creamier facebook ads. Spanner out of that. And in addition to that you see the result immediately with a developer. If you're another developer guy you have no idea if this wella per is good if this is fast or anything like that but the with a designer you see it easily you see easily on. The result of this design is good or not that he take around one day for this or one hour as fast or not so. It's very very easy to start with with a designer as a remote worker indefinitely you need to have one in your company. I just proudly recommend that so our starting also they designer and this man helps me to improve my facebook ads because we have awesome designs. But before i did all designs and all the banners and all that stuff by myself. And i'm definitely guys not a designed so you can imagine how tremendously the quality was improving by that guy so realizing hey this was working with the design guy. I get one step ahead. I hired someone for google ads. I hired someone for wordpress websites and stuff like that. So i was not only able to provide high quality to my clients with that remote working guys. Some accompany hours able to widen my portfolio. So i wasn't the for the branding out there. I was still the facebook. At sky in the facebook ads marketing like a guru and sold my book an amazon bestseller and stuff like that but then the back end i was able to sell them not only facebook ads but google ads and landing paycheck and a new website and email marketing. And all that stuff as well. Because i have a team right now and this is very easy scalable because if you're found a way and we come to data and a few seconds if you have found a way how to hire good people and not being scammed by people and really knowing that this people half good and high quality output you could easily repeat that hiring process and scale your business with that. As i mentioned. I've created more than ten million dollars ten million years in sales for my clients. This was only possible with having team. So how did you do that. You got on dot com on my platform if you would like to check this out. Fourteen days for free and create a shop post. We have only. Id verified user skies this very very important also. Go hiring on another platform. Feel free to do that but definitely do only hire people who are ide- very fight

White House To Review Plan To Pull Troops Out Of Afghanistan

"When the U. S Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin meets with NATO defense ministers today and tomorrow they'll discuss the future of the 2500 American troops still serving in Afghanistan under a deal the Trump Administration signed with the Taliban. The U. S is supposed to withdraw those troops by May, 1st. Biden administration is now questioning whether that's still a good idea, given the ongoing violence. BBC chief International correspondent least to set joins US now from Kabul on Skype and lease The Times of London is reporting that the Afghan government wants US and NATO troops to stay for another two years. So if the body administration were to agree to that, how would they justify breaking this deal with the Taliban? Right now. Our understanding is that the Biden administration believes it needs more time and now Afghanistan is in a situation whereby depending on what figures used 50 to 70% of the district's of Afghanistan or other controlled or contested by the Taliban, and that one way or the other either through the negotiations were through the battlefield that the Taliban will return to power. The Taliban are threatening that if the U. S doesn't keep his deal, they're going to resume their attacks against the NATO forces. They want the U. S. To keep this side of the bargain. We know that President Biden never supported the troop surge into Afghanistan when he was vice president. We know he wants to get out. But the big urgent question now and it's a really, really hard question is that it's not that they we will get out. It is how we will get out. And what will happen when we do? Well, you're right. That is the crux of the problem for President Biden and for NATO, that if you pull out troops or when you pull out troops that terrorist groups will emerge again in Afghanistan, but from what you're telling me It sounds like the Taliban already carries quite a bit of influence in the country. So how much of a concern is it that these violent groups would take over the country? At some point when these troops are gone, Rob The very pessimistic assessments, which say that the Taliban had moved so close to many of the provincial capitals, which they've been prevented from taking in the past because of U. S air power because of U. S intelligence gathering because of US and other NATO support that once all of these Foreign troops are gone, that they will be able to overrun these provincial cities. And then, of course, Kabul is the biggest prize of all. There are people in the Afghan government who say this summer will be the worst fighting season as it's called that Afghanistan has seen for years, But they say they're confident that the Afghan security forces will be able to stand up to them. I think the reality is that the Taliban have strengthened their positions. They believe that their return to power one way or another is just a matter of time. It is hard to believe at this point that this year will mark the 20th anniversary of the 9 11 attacks, which, of course, sparked the U. S led invasion of Afghanistan now two decades ago. What has been accomplished in that time? Lisa's we consider pulling these troops out. It has been 20 years of some successes. I think we have to bear that in mind. Afghanistan is not the country it was in 2000 and one There is a vibrant press. There is a parliament there is an elected president. There is the most educated, most connected to generation in Afghan history. But you cannot also avoid the fact that year in year out the Taliban from their sanctuaries in neighboring Pakistan, and the resistance from other outside actors. Have the inch back district by district into power work and what we see Eat today in Afghanistan is a time where Afghans are living in fear of targeted killings that one by one Human rights activists, female judges, journalists that young, educated generation expected to play a role in the future. They're being picked off one by young one, and there's a brain drain. They're leaving because they see their lives. They're not safe here and they don't have a future in Afghanistan. I don't think I'm going to say that All hope is lost. But there is a feeling that this is what the Taliban say. Time is up. Now you had your chance, and now it's

What to Do About a Shady Backyard Where Grass Won't Grow

"We also had a question. This week from sarah and she sent us some pictures to which is very helpful. Says fred my backyard is seventy five percent dirt. Grass is gone. What can be done now as we talked about pictures here fred. It looks like she has some very large trees or some larger trees and some large shrubs that may be giving quite a bit of shade in that area. Okay well that gives me a big clue especially if you can tell by the pictures. In terms of the size of the trees trees compete in two ways as shrubs and other things but at the same time Lawns are meant for open. Clear sunny skies for all intensive purposes. Now there are variations that theme but large trees shade grass so it cannot manufacturers much food they cause the atmosphere under themselves so to speak or or under the tree they cause little higher humidity for the most part grasp doesn't dry as early in the morning therefore subject more diseases of the leaf and so on and then they compete drastically compete with grass roots under under the tree Now having said that it's not impossible to go along. And i think she just flat out going to have to start over the first thing to do at where we can't see it for sure but if she can or if an arborist should be doing you can raise up with the head of the tree you can cause the limbs to be a little higher above the ground You can send the tree out and literally soon it out. Take some branches in appropriate places. Let more light down through the tree. Let more breeze blow through the trees dry grass encouraging better growth in the grass and so on it is however still very difficult in many cases under trees to grow on I have indeed on many an occasion where people prize the tree or they prizes position shading their patio evening etcetera etcetera where. We don't wanna hurt the tree at all. We will simply take out the grass. The remnants of the grass or just very lightly work the top two inches in terms of maybe some more organic material. some peat moss and so create a bed in which we're going to fly ground cover. They didn't matter of selecting the ground. Cover i'm gonna say such as myrtle pakistan eighty There are many many things that can be used but it comes time where you either manage the trees and check it the following year or two if the grass is growing better you you leave well enough alone. But as soon as those trees get a heavy hit on them again and continue to compete underneath. They're going to kill the law. That's just all there is to it for the most part. You just don't see lawns well. Lawn light grasses in the middle of wood so at that point you go with mother nature and created ground cover bed. It's well or what. I consider a total disaster would-be to take out the trees. That's that's not my first recommendation ever Rather work with them and on several occasions Without hurting the tree by covering the routes very much we have built up just slightly to get above the tree roots. Now one one of the infamous trees for lawn damage is norway. Maple they they just don't like grass. I swear it's written in their genealogy but They're they're so dense headed rooted and so on I've never allowed for more than two and a half inches of really good up soil being over the top of those roots. Because we didn't want to run a rotor tiller down through the roots and causes damage to the tree roots. So we build up just slightly In most cases now in one case the lawn slope the good bit where we add it only one inch. I'm going to say on the high side. And we put a little wall and put twelve inches of soil over the roots downhill side however Where the roots normally cover the entire area of the top of the tree. We kept the wall in under the edge of the tree. So that the roots that were exceeding the width of the crown could would not be damaged by extra soil. And it's been quite successful. That was done. Twenty twenty a couple of years ago and i've driven by their time or two cents and the bed is still doing quite well. they have gone on out toward the west side down side. All's well and they don't they don't about ruined their shoulders with the bumpy more and they don't ruin the trees roots and the grass is gone not to be worried about.

They have patients where the young people don't however their patients will wane after one or two trips without getting up by. It's the biggest hinderance that i've seen to our sport and your people neck key is getting a bit a bike. Too late that fire they gotta catch something and You don't wanna take him out in this herbal weather conditions yet the weather good into everything your power to make sure that they get back in there and the reason people fish in continue to fish is they had a good experience and a good experience is something pulling on the end that the wire gets really the reason you're out there. That's what motivates people is the miracle of of this. It is amazing to me. My entire life in this business to see would fish can do this change. Somebody's like yeah.

Fish was just the joy on your face. You were always you know chuckling and laughing and having a great time and we were just living vicariously through you as the wind. Blew about seventy miles an hour through cheyenne. But i mean it's it's just it. It really did make a big difference. And i do want to. I want to ask about this because this is really important to david. Ni- we we both have little kids and we take them out fishing hunting different activities. And you know you have kids of your own. And and i know. He's very influential and big into the fishing businesses. Well but can you talk a little bit about what that was like raising your kids to be fishermen but also you know kind of raising them during that time that you know you're just so busy and you got all these things on with the with the fishing world and the fame that you had going on. How did you manage all those things and still make it a great experience for your kids. They grew up in the business. they did. There's not all all seven right here except in children. I've got two boys all of the kids. even girls. Three of his kids are girls. They all served in the business wing. Some of your friends. At the time we started lindy dako copier reports sinkers learning advertised snow. Rapper mind cars. Were exposed to the business is a family run. I mean all their life you know and they grew up in many different fields yet. You know it other things. But-but-but number stayed in the business in our in the business today like jim. dna billing and mesa troy. Yeah you know and and my daughter niece who worked as a pr rest. For many many years fishermen still welts me A right right material and press releases and things like that you with the gifted in that area but they grew up in the business thing. Yeah and and that way you were able to spend time together so they understood it. They understand the crab and the things that this life style. If you went to make a living a good comfortable living in deficient indiscreet. I don't hurt my myself and i know many people that you and i do not that then ended the business row ripley. Welcome rarities Actor to it these days. It's a lifestyle business that you want to get into anything cup. Lack of time it is. It isn't in ninth the fact you you know you eat sleep twenty four hours or so you go to bed at night thinking in still today at the. That's been in this my life. There is not one and go. That goes by that. I don't read something about fishing. Watch something about fishing. Talk to somebody about dishing. It happens all the time. Not a day goes by where some aspect of it is in touch in my life. A part of my life in My closest friends are pretty much involved in fishing industry. Right closest friends. Are that sparks your question for me. L. and that's you know i'm kinda way way beginning of this journey. I've got a small family run company but it's in the hunting outdoor space. And you know. My boys are being raised growing up when we work right. We have stuff to do. There's it's a small family run business. it's not you know. Dad goes to work at nine. And we're we're done at five and let's go do x and y but my question is long term for me. My dad took me fishing law. And now i go hunting and now. My boys are in a hunting company being raised. How did you see kind of the transition of with raising these kids. In the company in fending fishing industry they stayed on and continued to fish and still thrive as that was our was that a positive experience for them. Oh yes yeah. Yeah for a number of now. There's some of them that was not. I'll use my to poison example. My oldest son george in here in heat you shared with the. I'll give you my first experience with it. needs he. He was raised in the business. He worked in. It works wade through until they went off to college in it but he was interested in fishing gets his passion in his case. Was things that move fast snowmobiles motorbikes four wheelers dirt bikes. This is what he loved to do. Sounds like we'd get along pretty. Well do troy and the other hand off from the time. He was a little tiny kid. You could see the seat of he would be back in front of our h- house here a day and night catching frogs and just running up and down the bank catching he'd loved it from the time he was four or five years old internet. Never change he absolutely left. And i just think again. God created all slightly different with different interests and is a good thing. You had one boy in the garage tinker on motors and going faster and you had another guy you couldn't keep at the house. He was taking his fishing pole and he was to the water at four and five. Yeah in in in you and your the answer. Paracha half have respect know. I respect that. They have to be their own person in in in seek out for thinks the all that you know that those different interest levels impacted their right as they were growing up in reading some cases to to what they're doing today you know again my son toys into it in a lot of different areas of my oldest son and interestingly he he he liked even as a kid. You're living on the edge. He here you love the excitement of the snowmobile races today. He he'd get so pumped on yet in today. He's he's the paramedic he's a wilderness paramedic in he's fighting fires -fornia loves the game. You're whites. He likes ribbon on the edge to me. I like living on the salary to belated contentment. That's what i really like. And you know. I follow troy on social media and that that guy is always out doing something. And he's. he's an incredible fisherman. I mean it's it's yet it just anything anywhere any way any loves digging around in offbeat places for a coupla. He's got he's got pack whereas in no matter where he goes scurrying rats. He sees the body of water anywhere. Anything they could hold the fish he just drives up insider road. And rodney goes spacious anywhere anywhere crapping around the country with him because spent he's spent some time out west and i know he's fish some areas where i've been and it's just kinda cool to see that and i do want to ask you a question about that. Everybody has some of those favorite moments. What it was like a favorite moment for you fishing with your kids that you can recall the years ago with troy. I'll give you a. I'll give you my my oldest son that never got turned onto it and here's winter. Mistakes that make made with the there was a series the best tournament series. Starting in minnesota zillion years ago it was called the northstar bash turned into and when he was about four years old. I took an pre fishing. Mary and i got a cabin on the lake. And i took him pre fishing for that tournament with me and he had snoopy rag. You had snoopy rag. And they had to wait spinner baits. Then you know it was cool. We're up in the morning out. Who day thinking around. He's dragging this spinner baits through the water. And you know. I'm trying to catch some fish. Internet little said something. It's something from we'll get more moves out to have been great you you you hold in iraq ruled colin. He looks at me. it looks at the rad. He throws looked at me again. I got the message. You burn me out so bad. And so i think there's a balance there were so you know. My dad took me steelhead fishing. And i've i've got quite a few steelhead to my name. And if anybody out there knows steelhead there they can be finicky and tricky fish to catch i. I mean the passion for catching them is kinda gone. I've i've i've been out steelhead fishing and i've seen this in the hunting industry where you know you get some guys. That are pretty. Some prowess in are pretty successful. They take their sixteen seventeen year. Old son out. He shoots a world calibre elk and ten years later. He's he's not in elk cutting he's into fishing or snowmobiling or something else does.

Maybe it was. It was jackie gigantic for bike. That was half water. Fish birds played beat of ball. That would be. That would be a lot of fun. I now i'm like. Wow that sounds like a blast. But i wanted to change gears just a little bit One of the things that have admired you for years is that you're not afraid to talk about your faith and i think that that's very important thing and you know i want to see if he can share just a little bit about your spiritual journey and how god is played a big role in your life after the two most important parts of my life. The next year shared all all the time. It's fishing in my unity. Go hand in hand every day. Day is just part of my life. I integrated what we do with the television shows. You know the the impact that it it a try to kind of quickly for you until the time. I was thirty five years old. You know i was a person. It was not an atheist store. Nick knight that nasdaq. I probably would have favored more upper eighty s. And i don't believe anybody that spends any amount of time in the outdoors anywhere can be an atheist. I think that's an impossibility. But i had no really. I was obsessed. And i guess that's the only word i could use obsessed with fisher twenty four seven. That was all that and you know. It gets all in our businesses. Were building at that point in time and At thirty five started giving turkey in my heart to Right to spirit a guy who was just tugging in my heart. I met people that that Turned her life over to the lord. Lord that were hard party hard-drinking people that i knew a hard partier. You know when they were like a different person you night and day and he started to talk to me about about jesus guy stuff i never heard of before the enemy sound comes with a lot of people you gotta understand nothing really new number and then i started the search knowing there's life got you got your busse heart who's much of his life in in one day turned us away lord has given us percents and i says well i i can't do it myself i need help i need your direction. I'm just saying guidance. Any made a confession of faith. Like they're nice and his life and then for about two years you know i wandered around back. Studied the word guide. The bible began challenged thing to me to get through a through know little things like could this really be real. You know like so many people. It's this bible. Could this stuff really. But this this thing is is there a guide the foundation guiding coke. Jesus was the foundation. Is this thing that he really is is. He says he is to be comfortable recently. Said he did from beginning to end. Yeah you know. And i started looking at this stuff. You know one day it got out of my head arc. It was never less years. All i can say is if you truly search is real. He's there you care some words to be. It's a real experience. You know the the point he's got to get out of your head in it. You have become a part of my everyday life. I'm not ashamed for the dash. That's it openly. That's who lamb. And i can only share the experience that i hear. And how would i life. My family My outlook on business. Now look on life right back by relationship with my wife and the older. I get a clearer easier. It is for me out to be more appreciative of of my lord grayson so al. I've got a question. It's a immuno high positive this way in a as starting my own business in the outdoor industry and then walking in faith in how how has that affected you know business decisions and just in a living in the limelight and and outwardly expressing. Your faith is there. You know ever moments of doubt. I mean 'cause i in today's society and day and age is definitely not something that's widely accepted. Are you saying in here by some subject back. But what would you buy. S- i mean as far as just running a business and then walking in faith. I if you look at the marketing partners that i have every single one of a from boat motor rag reels lures lying a wreck. Chronics are the top right at the top of their field in their individual categories. Everyone of and we've been with them for many many many years. Some of them almost my entire career. And i've said in corporate boardrooms all over the country. Go going all over television space over television network and contract saying that we re mega conglomerate and never have. I had one of say anything about my confession of faith and that show it all. Most of them have said they appreciated it and go forward and one of the reasons for that is an and some of them are not people but they businesspeople and the bottom line. Is i self stuff for. That's what i still stuff on. I do my job or am i would absolutely. That's why they don't you know so it's it's a only one. Major major challenge would network. It was who was with a network and and jerry jones johnson. They want forgot about guy that that was the words that they came back came back and they said that it's interesting the way they did notification we played on this network for a number of years and this particular year correct when just the way it always hits in five weeks into the show and it was a wednesday afternoon when it got where got i got contacted by the president of networking. And he said it's gonna pull the show because you're religious stance on it. We don't believe it's we. We went network anymore. This was on a wednesday. We get i managed. They did this going to pull it if we did we. Did we read it. Every i reiterate that we think energy i get contract signed with a bunch of sponsors and i had to deliver the numbers in so we get at that show and euronet weekend in the entire re edited version. And we continue our attorneys. Said you know you've been with. They want to take the court. You can't beat it you got. You ran for five weeks already. You did this for years. They never get it. They can't do for this thing and and they talked iran in in my wife. Laura his wife's no we'll go to thorough. They don't want you. i don't i don't want to be there. they want. They want us to be pulled what they want. They wanted to be this what we did back to show to them. We make the changes in our last of the contract for the television season. We sent them with bill. They said the bill hearing on pitching to us and we sent them the bill. Bill them back or the editing changes. We have to make sent it back. I never heard from them. That i didn't pay for the network in europe. Charge them back for all of the pain and misery went back bent. So it's no legal. Nobody called us back. Matt a single thing the legal. Nobody their legal. Nobody never heard from him since well. I'm really glad that you guys you know you. Un ron have have always been good about you. Know talking to people about your faith and it's been a centerpiece of the show and one of the parts of the show. The actually look forward to a bunch is the very end when you go through whatever god lays on your heart and i really just want to say. Thank you for doing that because we need to be able to talk about these things and i. It seems like culture is trying to move in a direction where they don't want you to talk about stuff that might offend somebody. But it's like you know these are things that we should all be talking about. You know if that's part of your life that's an integral piece. You should be able to talk about it. And there's one one thought i have on that. Patrick is to speak to have speech to have thought. You risk being offensive. Right to someone. And i mean if we're just gonna walk around muzzled and mass and never have a conversation about anything i mean. I'm into big game hunting that that can be offensive. Catching fish can be offensive. So we have to push back. We have to go. They'll run over here if you don't get you know and i'm a big thing an immediate business all my life. I'm a big believer a freedom of expression freedom of speech. Even if i don't with it so am i even. If i don't agree with it you still have a right to share. I understand and i respect it. And i think that's something that people need to remember. Is that just because somebody says something. You don't like doesn't mean you have to agree with them. You can just choose not to listen to that person anymore. I mean there's there's stuff that's put out all all the time that i don't listen to and i don't want to be associated with because i don't agree with what their stance is and you know there's plenty of stuff that i do love to watch and listen to that. I do agree with people that disagree whether you should catch fish on spawning beds are not right in an argument about that or you can easily selena when you can easily get there. But but again. I i like i said i. I respect our our freedom speeches. An expression is an important thing. I've been in the media business my life all my life and in people have a right this year that i have i a right. The like to tune into a cheddar offer. Do whatever i want with it not read it. I can exercise my own decisions. I'm not gonna go in there in equality sponsors sponsor them. Because you're doing this dead. I never do. And i think that's something that needs to be heard and i'm glad that somebody i'm sure a few people here it on this podcast but what you said is very true. We don't need you know this. Cancel culture of of things that you know. Ripples need to be able to share and people need to be adults about it and mature enough to handle it and choose what they want to listen to what they don't. I mean that's it's it's really part of the backbone of what what our country was supposed to be about and Were anyway i do to change gears. Just a little A guy that's been really influential in my life on fishing is pat o'grady. I met pat. Oh man that's probably been twelve thirteen years ago. And he was getting his company started. And i jumped in and helped him out with. Pk lures and here. He had told stories about you coming out to wyoming and doing some fishing. I remember reading. In the law. ally wisdom books About seminole and a few things. So i just wondered if you could share a little bit about coming out to wyoming. Western space are so different than northern or ride scary. Yo it's a whole different world and you mentioned to you mentioned alluded earlier when they get used to is. Never any wind ever ending win in. I mean if you go if you're going to fish you better better get used to win. Better not bothering you. The rick the vote right the handle nbc and being a safe piece the piece of equipment. They handle wind in it. I don't know if you guys ever go through three straight days in a row word you calm day never. I don't think lever happen. I go to archery shoots. And i have people say well. I'm not shooting in the wind and they start playing. Oh the winds blow. And i said well you come to wyoming. If you don't shoot or hunt in the wind just don't go hunting joke. Defeat w. t where we go to the code is as an example. You look at the weather report the night before they they say the win the window. We from fifteen to twenty five. It means it's going to be forty plus asu. It'd be forty dollars. Plus that's what you're going to get the truth. Well you talk about seminar. That is one of the windiest places. I think in the lower forty eight. I mean the the wind speeds on that reservoir are ridiculous. But i'll tell you the fishing is phenomenal. How many winter they put around it. Yeah they put a lot of wind turbines that sucker for good reasons but those western reservoirs growth big fish. Hey we're trying to keep that a secret. Al off carp fish is amazing and even some very. I'm a small mountain. i love smart fishing. The small mouth world small mouth. Fishing is as popular as it's become the tournament organizations. That have the come up north and since two small fishing and a great lakes and now they're coming everywhere yet yet you know you get to experience it in tournaments Love it the small mouth. Fishery that exists. West of the mississippi river is still some of the most unexplored smart fishing in north america systems. I can't you're innocent. At west of the river or to western states many of those reservoirs got phenomenal phenomenal. Nominal bishop i. I liked to tell the story. I've told a couple of times there's a. there's a river in oregon. I won't give the name but an all out to you. We drift boat floated at one day. And i hooked sixty small mouth in a day and i got tired of jagan forum. So i put on a mouse pattern. I tied and i caught. You know half a dozen small. He's on a mouse pattern. Just throw it right against the bank and start stripping out and they'd at that river this drift boat only so motorboats in that that can be a lot of fun i mean those are their sparkling out there and some of the some of the bigger systems pick the missouri river as an example for four. You've got set at saf. You've gotta wacky a. These are massive bodies of water massive massive systems and their in in in in there. I mean the small muppet. Nobody hears coast that they won't see an angler in your role year for small. Nobody'll be their four. Pack four pack is one of the most remote fisheries. I've ever been to. And i'll tell you what they're there have got to be miles and miles of shoreline that never get fished and i mean there's massive massive in their own up in way up at that even at the dry air dry air too short that is about what forty i think. That's forty miles long. And then you've got that main arms like one hundred and sixty miles long. There's very few accesses. Oh yeah you know you're right. I remember we had a pw heat from the tournament. They're in what we we got the attention that anisimov parsons weighed in. It was kabaya. They rent way when came to brought the smart in with his bad fish. So we could wait and it was like a six three or six or this. Was that smaller. That miniature scale in your macro swarm are up in san francisco. I couldn't pull about about have to lead. Somebody's somebody structures. Just drive in his crazy ton of them in there. That's an incredible says. I said there there miles up. It is the most untouched massive untouched mama. Fishing attack. the guy goes through not to mention some of the. There's one night and forget. That warned that they bleed. I think they believe their next record. Birsh sure commander there. I can't remember to saturday with no gather some wells. Old anti yeah. There's some fantastic fisheries out here. And i know just in wyoming alone. I mean you've got a number of really good reservoirs for walleye and you know a couple for small mouth that are really significant and a whole bunch that are good for trout of various species. And of course he got flaming gorge with those humongous lake trout. And that's and that's an incredible fishery to we touched on earlier smarter and they've they've kinda taken a dive the they they think that the Burbot that made their way there. Somehow somebody moved burbot down there into that drainage from apparently around this area and They just haven't they haven't done as well they they were doing really well in the early two thousands. I used to go down there with my dad and we'd catch some up to four four and a half pounds and now it's pretty hard to find them. They're still there. They're just not in the quantity that they used to be environmentally. Then yep There's something to be said for that. You know when i grew up steelhead fishing. You'd spend a lot of hours and when you finally hook into one of those thirty forty inch fish. I mean they they take you for a ride for a while but you can fish for two three four days before you even catch one hook one hook up you go small fishing and have those fisher so dang aggressive are fun. It's fun so that's one of the beauty of them. Yeah there's a there's a little reservoir here in wyoming that kicks out you around five pound fish. Pretty regularly And i i went there with a buddy of mine one time and we are fishing. Top water thing between josh. And i we we both got probably fish apiece just fishing little poppers on the surface in it was just a lot of fun and then that thing that you talked about al that happens in wyoming happened in the wind blowing really really hard to get off their old of the gun the boat for your life. Get your your jacket on. Got what. I'll tell you that much we got wet but so what's what's next. What's in the future. What's what's you know. What do you plan on. what's coming up. What are we. Should we be watching for and getting a little long into or the age also slowing down. A little bit i mean jimmy wego muskie fishing me for four hours. I ain't gonna go in our barrett fats or two pound rubber. Big thing can happen. You're only as old as you act. Al see you know strongest kid. My body doesn't want my five. You don't want to receive that. There are things that are wearing down a little think. That's wisdom speaking to abandon. No too so. I i have to pick pick and choose a little bit a little bit more but i still loved the game. I mean know as long as i can contribute that this sport in a positive way. I'm gonna do it. i'm not gonna. i'm not going to quit. I'm not gonna retire up. Going to crack back. And i mean by cutting that i wanna do more fun fishing on the shows. Jimmy jeremy that the staff and other people we work with. I'd like to see troy get a little more involved with this stuff. These guys you pick up the ball and run every night for long enough to fund fish a little bit more by that go do some things and places a lot of bodies of water that i'd like to play around a little bit now for two hundred and a lot of people don't understand that you know when you're going fishing for the weekend without a camera crew that that can be quite pleasurable when you're going filming for an episode that can be you know when you gotta redo takes a redo when you just wanna go explore to make it happen you gotta make. It's working people don't they. They sit in their living rooms and watch that and go. Oh well they were just they. Turn the camera on and went and had a fun time. There's a lot of hours behind the scenes when the cameras work was in. And then there's a year no it's addressing a lot of times a lacking half and on hot fight fetched but then when you dress the show after that. That's when you get the underwater cameras stuff out to fit. That fit the scene where the fisher coming in in to get the right drum shots environment. Those those all add to the editing and make it a little more exciting the music tracks that that go with it. you know. Music is so subtle in you know a lot of shows don't use music because you have to pay Their cost us thirty thousand dollars a year to use a music so yeah bachelor of music track because their royalties and alma my companies right in this is our very first go. My dad and i went she putting this last fall. We hired a cameraman and we took him. And i'm learning very quickly of the shortcomings of we didn't get you know. Be roll. Shot here and this extra shot here and you know getting that underwater shot or that overhead shot that you need in. It's you know it's really hard now to recreate and get those extra shots that we need to produce the film that i wanna purdue so make a real exciting piece you back. That'd be rollers goals man just putting the actual the actual easiest park. It is actually catching deficient getting their artist on films that easy. Then you've everything else is putting it together. It's all better than that anything. Sweetening the more things you have to compliment. Show the better. It becomes the up on where we're struggling. We're stretching it as as as as we can stay but it's fun man fun. It is a lifestyle worth living. Believe me i if you if you could do it. And you find a way to get your niche in their buck doing it your sizzle lifestyle business for a lot of people if you if money is your motivation and you want to get rich. Don't come fishing industry and here's a lifestyle some of us. I mean you could make a good comfortable but if money is silicon valley and they live in that world out there if you want to be able to go out and enjoy the great outdoors and have a comfortable lifestyle. Fishing industry in hunting industry. Got a better choice. you will never regret. it couldn't couldn't goodness it better myself. I have one more question and this is a really important question.

Shake his hand and say thanks But w quicker next time patrick. Yes but now. He's got to spend an hour talking with him and he's he's a wonderful guy and he's made an impact on my life that you i can only just tell you guys that it meant a lot to me today to be able to talk to him when i was younger. My mom passed away. When i was fourteen and after my mom passed away one of my things that it was kind of an outlet for me was fishing just to get away clear my head get away from life and my dad. I remember one saturday. He took me down to cabela's in sidney nebraska which is about a hundred miles from cheyenne. So he went to sydney. Bought some fishing gear but we also went and we found that they had a rack of in fishman. Vhs tapes and books and so we picked up those things and brought it home. And i mean. I was in those things. Like you wouldn't believe you know on those rough winners of shan that i keep talking about you know with the wind. Cystic crappie fishing. That was there. And i don't mean the fish you know we we would watch those videos. And we'd get amped up for that next trip to the gorge to catch small mouth or that trip that we had that next year where. We just clobbered the ele- perch walleye at poison. So you know those kind of things really mean a lot to me and just al and just the way is just how he has so much. Fun has so much joy around fishing. It's just so inspiring to me and so having him on was a big deal. You know for me today so it was great but i learned that and positively right. Vate faith and fishing is what he said. But you if if you're not having fun in this industry and he really did hit the nail on the head. Yes it's it's nice to be able to get to a point. You could make a living at it.

"But there's another issue where does have implications. And that's potentially has implications of ghanistan wireless has been playing out. There've been efforts to have peace talks. But also that the there's a US desire the goal of what's been driving, those peace talks, the US desire to draw down tell us how you think we do know it's factored into the Russian response. For example, in terms of this kind of some amount of hesitation to save ERI much to upset the bucks in this case. Even though they're very used to be historically still are. Close to the Indians tell us to how does this. How do you think this will play in terms of US thinking about how to react to this crisis? How does have gone situation? How's it shaping it? And what are the implications for this in the future? The puck stone is believed that they have some leverage with the United States because of President Trump's apparent interest in drawing down our presence. And I've gotta STAN rapidly and decisively the policies are probably not wrong about that. It probably is the case that given the president's priority in scaling down our presence in Afghanistan. It makes it less likely that the United States would respond dramatically harshly with pressure on Pakistan after this incident. But I think the United States is unlikely to do so in a very serious way for other structural reasons. The fact that it's not clear that we have any compelling way of changing this dimension of Pakistan's foreign policy behavior. But I do think that Pakistan has been modestly helpful in the last couple of months. In supporting the peace process, domestic Khalil's on is leading. And it's my view that even though Pakistan's role in Afghanistan has often been counterproductive pernicious and even at times very dangerous to the United States. And India any peace agreement in Afghanistan, Pakistan is not comfortable with is a peace agreement. That is probably a waste of our time. Because Pakistan is a neighbor it has serious equities, and it will spoil anything that it finds to be in to its own interests. So it's very much in our interests. And I think in the interest of the gun people to have Pakistan looked into these talks even if doing so makes our Indian friends understandably uncomfortable. I think it's in fact, the the sesame in Pakistan's role in that process as it's unfolding. Simultaneously with this crisis. Probably as a as a practical matter insulates them somewhat from aboard, draconian US and international response. One of the things we've seen a lot of debate about. And I think we might be able to judge this in hindsight better. But debate about the significance of what's happened over the last couple of weeks in terms of Indian Pakistan in terms of the relationships effect. This might have on relationships escalation not interest today. But in in future crises Tra this debate about what is really what is significant about these last couple of weeks. What has changed? What's not? What is your sense of the significance and particularly have these two weeks? And we don't know we were still we're going to watch and wait and see how this plays out. But from what we know. Now. What would you say has changed about our thinking destroyed change about our thinking, or and what has hasn't changed? Things remain constant or this crisis reminds us of some some constant factors. One is that there were continued to be provocations, the former militant attacks linked to groups in Pakistan, Iran, not any end to that in the near term. And that India is going to have to find ways to respond or to insulate itself or make itself resilient to the second. Is that the United States remains the default crisis broker in the subcontinent, even though other countries like China and Saudi Arabia, perhaps in the future could play a more significant role those fall to the United States. But I think so the key lessons for us. You know, one is that Indian Pakistan are on any given day either the first or second most likely nuclear flash point in the world, depending on what's happening Korea any given moment..

I've never submitted to that woman ever. An every within two days. Her post had six hundred likes relax reshare, and everything I was getting death threats through again, we had vets come to our house with with guns. I had to go to the cops a couple times. And I'm like, wow. After all the shit. I've been through this person's going to go over there and destroy my dream because of a joke on my page that had nothing to do with her.

I hate vets twisted around so bad, everyone in the stone industry has quietly come to me and told me you should sue that woman. You shouldn't do this. This is the worst thing that's ever happened. I'm like, it's not the worst thing that's ever happened to me. It's just someone who's very small stepping on an aunt and trying to ruin me and kill a dream. And that's what people do I was run over by bus. I got through that I was wrongly imprisoned in Pakistan. I got through that. I had someone killed my dream over here. I'll get through that. How did you end up going to Pakistan because we all right? Going back and forth and Turkey, you're going through Sweden hanging out. It's great and then dot dot dot Pakistan. I mean, what this this is the part that's a little confusing for people because they're like. Yeah. Ok Turkey, maybe. But when you say, hey, you're going to Pakistan.

I mean back then he I thought, you know, Muslims were dangerous people because you know, you only see what you see on the news. The Turkey was a beautiful country Turkey was was an awesome country, and I met so many friendly wonderful people there had a great time in Turkey. Ray was able to use my experience in Turkey on. How amazing it was. And how everything I thought was going to happen. Didn't happen. A had a great time. Like any kind of worries I had he was able to use that against me and justify we'll that's also going to be Pakistan. He painted Pakistan like Turkey Pakistan was supposed to be my brothers trip. And when he found out it was the Pakistani he says, I'm not going any back Dell. And when he told me that it was the Pakistan made no sense to me because this was the first I was here in about ten days before Peter was supposed to go on the trip. He tells me that oh, it's the Pakistan. It's not the Turkey. So I ask Ray what's Peter talking about wise at the he's what's his Pakistan thing. I I'm hearing about it.

These. National assembly and Buxton is the cricketer-turned-politician in run. Khan was elected as the country's twenty-second.

He secured one hundred seventy six votes with his sole challenger for the post shabas Sharieff of the opposition PM l. party taking just ninety six Rebecca Cosby spoke to our Islam about correspondent sick Kunda CRA money. And that's Tim about the difficulties which Imran Khan now faces. He's quite a journey for him. I mean, he got into politics twenty two years ago in two thousand and two. I think you only his body and you got one seat in parliamentary elections. Now, of course, he's prime minister always due to be sworn in officially tomorrow morning in a in a ceremony in Slama about as you say for the past five years. 'cause party have governed the northern KP Cape province, Pakistan. Now they'll have to govern the whole country. He has a slender very slender, very slim majority. That's only really been given to him because he's a formed a coalition with a number of other smaller parties, including some parties who he's been very critical of the past the end cwm party from Karachi the PM l. q. party. One of whose senior leaders Imran Khan once called the biggest thief in the whole job. He's now actually being pointed to a fairly prominent position in job government. So there's a lot of discussion about how free Imran Khan will be to implement the kind of the structural reforms that he says. He really wants to do. He, he's promised to create a a nail Pakistan in new Bacchus, STAN one that's corruption, free one that's more equal one where whether you're rich or poor, you're held accountable and he's beholden to his coalition allies.

And and some of these politicians often called electable switch allegiance to shoot depending on on on who they think is going to win, not people who necessarily ideologically motivated very briefly. Of course, he's got other massive challenges to has navy economies in a bit of a state. And of course, the constant problem of the militants absolutely. The economy will be his priority at the moment. The country needs a ten to twelve billion dollar bailout that could come from the IMF. It could potentially come from a friendly country like China or Saudi Arabia. And yes, as you say, the levels of militant activity in Pakistan had decreased over the significantly over the past few years, but it still remains a challenge for for him. So Kundu money in Pakistan authorities in India, say the number of people known to have died in the current monsoon season has now reached more than eight.

"This is what is kept nausea, Reeves party, in particular, in power, input job. It's the power of patronage. It's clans, clientele. Basically, they've got enough money. They can keep these networks beholden to that party. And Imran Khan is found it very difficult to penetrate three that this time, one of the reasons he's been able to a, he's been more willing to do these localize is and people have been more willing to do them with him as well as he's looked more likely to win be. He seems to have had these his opponents claim. He's had the backing the army and see his anti corruption narrative is cutting through a lot more not least because no Sharieff the former prime minister is in jail on corruption charges that Imran come in. Brought to the supreme cooled and victim and give us a sense of what this election means for the wide region and the wider world. I suppose there was outside Asia, lots more concentration on Pakistan on its gyp little significance at the height of the Afghan war. One. It really played critical role in in the often of of nine eleven. Now, I think that you know in the think tanks in the US they probably think about it a a little less. But Pakistan does seem to be if you like in play between the United States and China doesn't it? It's place kind of bigamous role. That's right. I mean, I think there's a danger for western policymakers if they think that because they recognize him Rincon is a cricketer former playboy. That means it's going to be sympathetic to western values. He's actually shown exactly the opposite. I'm not lifestyle, which does remain fairly western, I think in reality, but through his policies, he's probably gonna have Islamist allies. He's been very critical of the US war on the ways being conducted in Afghanistan. He he's kind of come down and I think in favor of the blasphemy law in in Pakistan, which is which is controversial. But I think for western Democrats, if you like, I think he's gonna come up against very similar issues in foreign policy that his predecessors have come up against. He shows no sign of wanting to end this rather ludicrous enmity with neighboring India, which Nova Sharieff actually to his credit did try to soften a little bit the border between India and Pakistan in Punjab news. I'm trying to the horse should really be the world's busiest border, but it's actually one of the qualities if you go across, there's almost no traffic going across, and then he's also going to have to deal with the issue of China. You know, China is investing tens of billions of dollars in infrastructure projects in Pakistan and any government including Imran. Khan's is going to have to deal with that and they're sort of contrivances in Pakistan about that in terms of whether the debts can be repaid some of these politicians on those kind of issues. And and as you say, there is a kind of geopolitical power play between the United States and China and India is there on the sidelines, let's assume for the moment that he does take power reasonably smoothly. Do you have any sense yet of water name run? Uncon- government's going to be like. Like I mean, does he have any administrative experienced as he have experienced people around him and doing the, he'll make a false start? Or do you think it's like to be a while as he feels his way? Yeah, took a question. His posse the PTI has been in power in the states of Khyber Peckham Kwa for the last few years, how well they've done. There is fiercely disputed, but it is not paxton's biggest or most popular state, so that and his record of administration is is pretty thin. I spoke to him last week and Tim, a couple of detail policy questions, some of which he was best role in the detail than others. So I did osc him. For example, victim mentioned the impending economic crisis. I asked him whether he was willing to go to the f. or whether he wanted to go to China to get more loans from Beijing to do with that. And he simply said that the parties undertake your review and he wasn't able to or any questions on it. So I think he's gonna have a lot of getting up to speed to do very quickly. And you ask whether he'll make a fuss. Awesome. He'll quite simply have to because this financial crisis, I think he's gonna hit him within months if not weeks of taking charge..

"And seven as an umbrella kind of organization called the they wreak at taliban pakistan is like a group of pakistan taleban organizations it was formed in the wake of an attack by the pakistani militry on a fundamentalist mosque in islamabad called the red mosque the law must should wear some students of the mosque madrassa students as well as in madras was our religious schools yes exactly religious seminaries as well as one of the leaders of the mosque was killed as that was sort of the catalyst essentially where the pakistan taliban came from is the jihadists who had returned from fighting the of gone soviet war in the 1980s when they returned back to pakistan's tribal areas and to the swat valley these started reconstituting themselves and the precursor all of the pockets on taliban was a group called the tnsm so long name that they regained nifazesharia mohammedi idea is that they wanted to implement sharia in the swat valley sufi muhammad was a fighter in this afghan jehad and then he came back and constituted this group fuss lula who is the current head of the pakistan taleban is the soninlaw of soofi mohammad so then in the early 2000s when pakistan joined the us led war on terror in afghanistan against alqaeda and more broadly against the afghan taliban the pakistan taliban started constituting itself to basically fight against the pakistani speed which had allied itself with the us in its war against okay that of the afghan taleban the pakistani steed really had kind of an ambivalent attitude towards the pakistan taleban when it started constituting itself so in the mid2000s they said these are our brothers i will quote pakistani.

"Oh pakistan literally burning down and again that's part of the story in a very important part of the story but there is more to the country than that and i think the sort of the final thing i would say is that pakistan tends to be coupled or maligned with the whole country its citizens it's democratic government tend to be maligned and packaged with its security forces especially elements in its security establishment that have supported militant groups and i think one of the virtues of the book you've boos more nuance more complex picture of this nation of two hundred million people and part of luck as the pakistani people themselves up multidimensionality or will you call multidimensionality of the pakistani of people what you mean by that the starting point really is to recognize it's not bad pakistanis support violent jihad in the majority of the country and i in fact if we take a look at just polling numbers ninety percent the exact numbers eighty nine percent of pakistanis said the thought that violence against civilians in the name of islam was never justified more pakistan he's are unfavorable towards terrorist groups that are favorable to our service group so there is a minority although some may say it significant there's only a minority that favorable towards terrorist groups and these are not just terrorist groups that attack pakistan alone there unfavorable towards terrorist groups that attack india as well as the united states that sort of an important facet of the picture to recognize so that's one dimension that's a good side to this story it's an important too much northern to more than 25000 people have been killed and earth acts molester kit in pakistan the fact that the saudi statistics serve in light of a sudden that is on a hundred percent in one direction or the other are you referring to the fact that even though 25000 people have been killed there are still people who are favorable toward sarah guru ladder one.

"Pakistan now to try and take care of crime which has to do with the seeff city projects which has to do with cctv footage off streets bazaars markets at sykora so that is in some ways a step forward that has been taken which allowed for you know this type of footage to appear in the first place but i i don't think i disagree with you and i think none nobody in pakistan frankly speaking disagrees with you either at the political level or at the social level that much much much more needs to be done to ensure that our children are safe the now people are suddenly realising that prediction of children will have to break loose cultural taboos so i'm quite hope was that this particular incident you know for instance malala incident woke up the nation to a different type off a challenge and i think this incident has woken up people to a very clear social danger which is certainly not only president pakistan its present all over the world but in pakistan i think people are now demanding that governments whether they're the provincial level or at the federal level do much more at every level due to do basically faced this issue uh you know very very aggressively now you mention malala of course she was the little pakistani girl who was shot in the head so just wanting to go to school and she has since created a movement she's won a nobel prize i think of the whole world pats knows malala you have daughters you're the mother of doses do you think your country is safe feel daughters christiane machele my children go to school in this country i have no other nationality i intend to live in this country i intend my children to grow in this country and i can tell you even though we are all obviously i think post nine eleven pakistan went through the bust possible effects of terrorists terrorism of permeating pulled off on borders into the pakistani territory and we went through many many bomb attacks and many many.

"You know a christian as some as the foreign policy practitioner i do not agree that you have done aviv from 1 to turn towards the other okay a china is the regional strategic partner perhaps the only real strategic partner pakistan has had not from today or the last five years but for the last four decades for for them with them we have a complete alignment of interest as somebody who's not a believer in conspiracy theories i am increasingly starting to believe that the presence of the united states of america and honest stan is not for peace and stability it is indeed as george friedman says in his book the next 100 years to create chaos in this region so that russia and china and many other central asian republics together with iran perhaps can be contained i as i said not a conspiracy theories by design by my dna but the more i see how are we going the more how i see how the of one war is being being fought the more i be believe this is happening you know the desk send the rape of this young girl a seven year old zeynab her body just found on a trash he has sparked a whole new level of outrage around the world what can you tell us about why the pakistani police or the regional police didn't get on to this case as quickly as the parents would have light for instance agresson as you know i mean frankly speaking in the country like pakistan the efficiency and the training and the requirement of the coolest leaves much to be desired but one thing that this incident has done in pakistan is that it has really woken up the conscience off the entire nation and you see the world isn't is up in arms i think much more than the world pakistan is currently in the state of mourning on this one incident.

"Hino rabbani cow welcome to the program pleasure to be here let me just read you president trump's new year's day tweet because i want to austria reaction on some issues so he basically said the united states has foolishly given pakistan more than thirty three billion dollars in aid over the last fifteen years and they've given us nothing but lies and deceit thinking of our leaders as fools they give safe haven to the terrorists we hunt in afghanistan with mental health no more so what was your reaction when you first saw that and i guess a a doublebarrelled question do you believe your government will retaliate by closing off routes by closing off air space all the vital logistics that the us needs to supply its forces in afghanistan my reaction to this was what have you come to i mean one of the world coming to what are the leadership of the way too i mean currently like it or not the us is currently the superpower and perhaps we looking to my dip up will avoid but guaranteeing the a fire away from the my point away but if you're willing to tweet away our foreign diplomacy and management of our foreign policy relations then clearly we are at a place where i would be i would frankly if i were sitting in the foreign office of pakistan i will totally ignored the street i would respond to the policy statement that they gave on south asia which was not very encouraging for pakistan or congratulate you for pakistan because that was all of government approach here this is frankly speaking a habit your tweeter who tweets rather flippantly it's almost like which side of the bed you woke up on that day and you know as i said externalising the massive failure in the one the stan is not the solution at all and unfortunately in the last many years we've seen this earnest need on the other side but you know christian and i i hope you would agree with me the difference this time is that this is a president who's tweeting and a country or or.

"Men's uh training and and intelligence sharing among other things and that now uh you know there are a lot of people in washington on both sides of the aisle actually saying that pakistan does not deserve that status uh and that there should be other punishments as well sanctions or of other other prosperous and he i think there are a couple of risk seer though hugo i think it's important that we outline on the first is that if the alliance with the united states does really break down here um you could see pakistan moved closer to china china of course i've been building ports and bridges in pakistan for many years now cultivating a closer relationship and i think beijing would be very happy to provide pakistan away from washington and and the other thing hugo i'm recalling the clinton administration when bill clinton cut off certain kinds of military to military exchanges with pakistan dan after they tested their first nuclear weapon and that led to an entire generation of pakistani military elites who have no connection no personal connection to the us arm armed forces in our commanders in leadership here and that's very dangerous because you you want those personal ties particularly in a country that is a nuclear power but be also so strategically located given the fights that were engaging in today yeah i think that's a very good points on the uh the the person to person ties within the military's uh just in the last few days since the the are at a toil ran uh pakistan has announced that its it's going to allow the chinese to uh to have greater access to the port of water that the chinese are probably going to build uh their own facilities there so that could be their second overseas base after a shooting in in africa um also another thing i think we should mention is that uh not only the pakistanis might some might become closer to china they also have a significant islamists of fundamentalists problem um and even within the government ranks and within the military uh some of these officers in or are they're supporting the taliban because they're ideologically uh in sync with the taleban and for the us to um withdraw from ing.
