The Candidate Who Carpools

"Uh-huh. Hey, everyone is Catherine before we get started. With this episode of the double shift. I have another podcast. I wanna tell you about kind world, she head embedded this kind of confidence in me, and she built a resilient send me that. I believe saved my life kind world from WB you are about how an act of kindness can completely transform someone's life. Honestly, believe Mahorn. This is what I was supposed to do. Kind world. Subscribe wherever you get your podcasts. In two thousand eighteen a very important groups stepped into the political spotlight to run for office like never before bombs with young kids being a mother is fundamental to my identity as a candidate. This is the double shift the show about a new generation of working mothers. I'm your host, Catherine Goldstein every mother works, and this podcast is about our stories. It's not about parenting or kids. It's about us and challenging the world. We live in today and Ashton Clements. And I'm running for the North Carolina house district fifty seven in the big picture of the twenty eighteen election's Ashton wasn't a high profile candidate. But she was one of the many moms who ran for state office. And I have some pretty burning questions. Like, how does this actually work for moms with young kids because we know that the cute family photos at victory speech? Don't tell the full story, and we're living in a new era of women in politics. Ix right now. Multiple moms are running for president. But if moms are going to keep running for office in twenty twenty and beyond we need to start talking about some of the ways it's done. Nice to me. Ashton a thirty five year old mother of three and she knows how to work or Ruth. She up everyone neighborhood security guards local politicos teachers in the carpool line before running for office as a democrat in Greensboro, North Carolina Ashton was the assistant superintendent for a public school district in the area. She was also the principal of one of the lowest performing schools in the state and got its test scores way up and she didn't let up even when she was super pregnant with twins that weighed eight pounds each when I was about thirty one weeks pregnant, the doctor said you now, I will write you see don't have to keep going to work. I was like if there is a medical reason that need to not work that's fan. Otherwise, I am going to it. But walking was really painful actually at some point. So I would get to my office cinema desk chair and roll madness chair around the school. I would roll it into classrooms. I would roll it onto the elevator ride up. Roll it off know with the role in because walking around became painful. Ashton now has a seven year old daughter and twin four year old sons and to her that's an important qualification? I think that. The voice of women who are actively mothering is not represented at our state legislature. And so when you talk about the price of preschool and daycare, and how that impacts working moms if you don't have women who are in that, right? Like, we've paid two thousand dollars a month to have our kids in daycare while working. So if you haven't been in that for thirty years, you don't understand how dramatically more of the paycheck that has become the past twenty years for moms because I'm looking at a seven year old and four year olds every day. And I'm thinking about the other four year olds across our state, and what do each of them deserve. They do deserve pre-k, and they do deserve to go out or if they're sick. And they do deserve their parents to be him with them. And I am not working eighty hours a week, but even though Ashton have a lot of ideas about the way things should be. She like many women had to be recruited to run. And they recruiter was like you. I should do this. And I'm like, oh, no, you know, that was my first response twenty eighteen with a big deal in North Carolina because there were some new districts drawn and Democrats thought there was an opportunity to flip Ashton's district from red to blue. She talked about the idea of running with her husband, Brian who said, you know, I don't think opportunities like this come up that often in life than no, it's probably not the misgiving at time. But if this is the time, this is the time. So in twenty seventeen Ashton declared her candidacy and a few months before the election. She quit her fulltime job to throw herself into campaigning. She was AMT about the race. Even though being a candidate felt a little scary running for office is very publicly venerable and away. I don't like to be to put yourself out there way. You know, how critical people are politicians, but the vast majority of people you're spending time with they don't know those things about you. And they're making decision about you in about five seconds. Right. And so that's pretty risky, and I worked really hard to get to a high level position in my career pretty quickly. And and kind of let that go to do this which feels ski. So when I visit Ashton two weeks before the election Democrats are pretty confident about her race people feel comfortable that with I race. And then I will win. I don't emotionally feel that. So I still feel very nervous and. Mike thing about election. I, you know, I still feel that don't want to be with a bunch of people because I don't feel you know, as confident as other people feel she sounds so unlike other politicians, she's real about having the same waves of self doubt, an imposter syndrome that so many women have. But she hasn't let it stop her. And it hasn't stopped a lot of other women from running either the conversations that we were having Ritchie's women is that they're not running for city council or school board or a state legislative seat because they hate Donald Trump. That's just not the connection are making. That's truly McLean. Downey a senior director of campaign communications at Emily's list. A group that trains and raises money for pro choice democratic women to run for office. They're running because they wanna fix the lights on their local playground or they feel like the waterfall needs to be addressed. But running for office as a mother with young children was basically taboo for a long. Time prominent politicians like Hillary Clinton Nancy Pelosi, and and Richard waited until after their kids were grown before they ran for office and women who did have little kids like former Michigan. Governor Jennifer Granholm were often instructed to downplay it with voters women who are standing in front of a room in their case for why they deserve to be elected and potential voters in the room raising their hands and say, but who's gonna raise your children. And that's just not a question that male candidates. Typically, get it's an assumption is being made about what a candidate should be when a candidate should look like it's contrary to what these women embody, you know, they've certainly gotten. Well, you need to present yourself as strong and more likely how a Nelken. Themselves Worthing to not talk about their children. Because that would you that they're they're not properly parenting, or it's it's really incredible. These women often have to stand. In the run-up to the election. I follow along with Ashton as she zigzags between campaign events and carpools with her daughter Lettie driving up to the school pickup line. Is this Tommy is lead he's element school. This is this is letty school. And I was actually the principal here. When letty was in kindergarten. So we were here for one year together. Yeah. But she's in second grade now, so it's a great school. Good. Dallet? I. In the car. I asked Lettie why she thinks people should vote for her mom to vote for her because she's gonna help you say herself. Our you have a problem, and he's gonna make good allow good laws. What are do? You have any ideas for what good loss might be. The kind. Don't steal be fair. Found. Those are great ideas are great ideas for laws. Greensboro population is around three hundred thousand and when you live in a mid sized city, even dropping your daughter off at dance class turns into a campaign. Stop. Not yet. But I will be doing that tomorrow. Well, that's exciting. I know it's weird. You like just do you a normal stiff, but then all of a sudden, everyone knows your picture. And then people like, oh, wait, I know her. I'll see see her at the the coach arts. Bassey's? Thank you. Now, I wanna take a moment to tell you about our sponsors for this.

All right now back to the show. So we're now back at Ashton Clemens his house and I'm chatting with her when her babysitter comes home with Ashton's twin boys Briggs and back who she just picked up from daycare. Brought me. Can you said hi back? They are doing interviewing me did. You get ready. Guess from ballet? Email is it? Oh, gosh. Sorry. Okay. What time is it? Let me call them. Yeah. We go grab her the boy since they here Bali. Sorry. Yup. Eight total scheduling mishap the babysitter forgot to pick up letty from ballet. So she sitting there waiting for someone to come get her as we do our interview. Sure. Senior ego mafia-like it's not a failure. It's just all part of the. Part of it is not again, not good. Gets the reason I can't help myself from chiming in is because we have all been there, except a lot of mothers don't wanna talk about it or get quote unquote caught with this happening. And if they do a lot of moms beat themselves up Ashton's husband, Brian is super involved with family, logistics. But when it comes down to it Ashton is still keeping track of all the moving parts the moment of like, all the logistics of the family that we just witnessed like that sort of reminded me this idea that even when both parents are so involved so often it's the mother who has the mental checklist about everything like you knew immediately as she walked in like, where's letty? She's supposed to be with you like you didn't miss a beat. What has been your experience with the mental checklist? Now that you're running for office. I think it's just more. I mean, there's just more on their checklist. And it's less routine. Do you feel you can offload the checklist or is it? Quist always with now can any woman flight the checklist. I don't think so no, I think so I wish I wish I could. I think it's a major difference in my husband. And I and and you know, I think he figures it out for sure. Brit. He he's not he doesn't it doesn't acupressure this part of his brain in the way does mine, and he doesn't own it in the same way. You know, like, I'm the one sending the Email. He's responding than I'm getting the babysitters to, you know, doing all those pieces, and it's not to say doesn't do a whole lot. He does it is different though. I think. Every mom. I know is stressed about being a good mom. No, mom. No, mom, if sitting there like I got this. I've got all of this. You know? But that's how that's how we feel. We have to portray ourselves. So I think society historically, all of these things have created this pressure to feel that way saying as. Sorry. Body. Yep. Hang on just a second. Just see so many women feeling they're failing that are incredible. And it breaks my heart does, and we feel that we I feel that. I mean. I'm starting to say, I don't feel those. But how can we help lift each other up in how wonderful working moms are being across the world. But one thing that's made being a mom running for office a little bit easier is that Ashton does get support. There's a group of first time democratic women running for assembly seats in North Carolina. And some of them have young kids to Ashton remembers one particular moment when she turned to them, you know, again, another day I hadn't really seen anybody in. I went into give Beck a kiss. Goodnight. And he was asleep holding my palm card, which is like the thing you hand out to people vote for you. Yes asleep. Clutching it to his chest. It was terrible. That was an example. I was like you guys, I'm drowning mom guilt tonight. And then they're all, you know, rise to the occasion, and there's a validation of that. Because so many of them are doing the same thing and not a mini them. This is hard. You know, that is hard that you had to see that. But then the encouragement of he's better for having a mom his doing those things, and you are fighting for him and for the other kids of our state. One of them said, you're just the mom. He needs into serves inr like that validation. Brings tears is now. And in that moment, I was it was enough to say, okay. This is this is a piece of a keep it moving. And my husband was like, astronauts, not a big deal. That's how he saw it. And that may be, but you it felt it didn't feel that way. Right. Instead of have women who could understand where I was coming from because they are also sacrificing so much with their children to say, this is hard. This is still you're you're still demaim that he needs. You know, was is great. Good evening. I'm Judy Woodruff. On the news hour tonight. It is election day voters across the country head to the polls with control of congress and many state houses at stake finally on election night ashen is waiting for the returns to come in at home with a couple of friends she invited over her husband Brian is the ringmaster of bedtime. Getting the kids bays and chasing their daughter down to brush, her wet hair. The kids are all wearing in sort of vintage Obama t shirts and new Ashton Clemens shirts watching Brian action. It clear that it's not just about women stepping up to run. It's also about rearranging how some families make it work. So that men hold up their end of the partnership. Here's brian. This is probably made me a much better dad just really kind of enjoying that time that my time with the kids, and it's been really cool. I've gotten to know a little bit, Betty and Kuwait. It's just been a lot of fun. I think as far as the. The election goes were. We've had a lot of political conversations and learned a lot of other. So that's been a lot of political conversations. What does that mean? Twenty eighteen election. Brought plenty of good news for Democrats around the country and right here in North Carolina. State Democrats particularly thrilled about breaking the Republican super majority in the state house. After months of campaigning. The late nights the canvassing at ninety m on election night. The results are clear. Ashton one. Say something. But I don't know. I'm sure cried. There have nothing nothing. More than this. And I only felt able to do it. Because of all y'all make you good. So. Everything two years. Twins times in to clarify. What's really going on? But I feel we're done running. Yes. We want. Thirty five year old mother of three Ashton Clements. A woman who a couple of years ago hadn't considered running for office. Just got elected to the North Carolina general assembly and November six twenty eighteen was a big night for moms across the country. Get new jobs. This is not a wave. This is a sea change. That's Julie McLean. Downey again from Emily's list. We did not just see this phenomenon of women running for office happened only at the congressional level. We saw down about at the state legislative level will be side in mayoral races. We saw in city council races. And we saw from women who maybe weren't ready to run for office this cycle, but said I wanna make this part of my life plan. I wanna get myself to a place where I'm ready to run into four six years. Do you think the success of women like Ashton in in winning her race will incur? Courage more mothers to run for office in the future. Absolutely ashes such Emec citing case, I just think that she ran a really strong camping ended shows that you don't have to have a quote unquote, traditional background to run for office. You know, she didn't see enough people like her in North Carolina State legislature. And I think that knowing that she can do it will inspire others to do it. Do you want to say anything about your mom? In two weeks. You're back with a story. You will not wanna miss the sexy virtually American jury, we're going to Nevada to find out what it's like to be a working mom when your office is a brothel.

All the money went to cancer. Got to put money into to keep that going. And I thought it was. Let's raise some money for cancer and but they did with a lot of interesting array of people, you did a reading of James l. Brooks screenplay for terms of endearment and. I mean, I almost went to it. I had tickets, but I didn't end up getting to go. But my the thing I was most excited about as close to Flockhart was one of the people reading script at. So I thought, well, Harrison Ford's going to be there to earrings look like he doesn't want to be there. And when I saw pictures today on the internet that that did happen, he was there. It was great. I talked to Harrison Ford last night. Y'all ain't shit. I just wanna meet him because I want to tell them that Star Wars movies from now on because he's no longer going to be in the. He's always my favorite character that, oh, well, Ray point. What do you do? He's dead ghost memory asking meteorite the Star Wars movies, but also I don't think I think here's for be hard to get him out of bed to be in yet. Another Star Wars movie. I think he like around empire. I think he was begging them to begging Lucas just kill them off. Yeah. Just let him die. It's not like having a job. He likes to fly planes poorly? Yes, he likes to fly planes, but Landingham is another deal altogether the easiest way to get out of doing more jobs. Well, that's some real petering wisdom right there. Man, you four through though. Open the bag. As I came out here. But okay, so it's a stage readings. Everybody sits like this with the scripts on little stands, and they read it, but you like rehearsal little bit, you were saying, yeah, we did a pretty long rehearsal, and, but it's also extremely dramatic. Yeah, everybody was crying. Yeah, but the scene where Shirley MacLaine in the movie is screaming about give her the drugs, give my daughter. The drugs. Yeah. Did cliff Lockhart get that nuts reading that scene? Yeah, it was very heartbreaking list. Flockhart was very, very good. It was. It was great because then movies. So if you haven't seen terms of endearment people remember it as like this very sad movie, which it is, but it's also very funny, it's got like great lines in it. So it was like for the first half, it was killing it in the second half, everyone was crying. Okay. Now I'm glad I didn't go. It was. I wanna mean Harrison Ford with my makeup all running. It was very exciting. Yeah, that's super neat. All right. Well, congratulations on that really help cancer out too. So just keep it going on. They got rid of that thing. Well cancer. Yeah, not anymore. Thanks to command. I heard. I'm not going to say who the source would, but I heard the reason they're still cancer is because of the dams. So. For second. I thought that was nicknamed for me and I was like, what did I do. Do you like. Anyway, let's let's discuss the prize bag. What do you have for the bag tonight? Matt Besser. Well, I don't have anything for my project so has some old stuff, so. Okay, I got my best breaks the record stand up album available on Amazon as well.

What are you have for is the part of I forgotten about the prize. No, it's okay. But I found some round up candy. You're right, not be impressed open. No. Missing from it very light. No, this is a bad cast. And there's no way for me to defend myself offered people at home really is like half. Really is like half full. Well, somebody just wandered into this. Inside it dead.

Right, right on taco. Two thousand thirteen and very current with my prizes. I love Americans target that you can read stuff like I decided to point the camera in the direction of the actor. Turn the light on and hit record. Are you flip a doozy w looking for your your own image. I'm looking to see if there's a review of Halloween in there because halloween's on the cover. Oh, maybe not because they want, you know, reviewing holidays that movie. This is my favorite one. Young one-star. All right. Student come back. This Easter gets to stars are doing their stand. All right, cool. What are you? Got commercials. I got two things out a bag. Well, just keep the bag. Brian Blu, Ray DVD of our movie. The big. A poster signed by me, and I tracked down the co writer of it, and she got to sign it too. Just one copy. Huh? One format so wins tonight might be watching Bill lading dead to lady dead lady dead. Is that your daughter parody. Is pooping too. She did. She. Okay. That works wars. Sometimes they write themselves. Okay. So I got a quick question for each of you before we get to the game portion. Matt. Why is there a letter in front of you. Postage letter this, oddly now. That baseball card. I just I'm going, we're giving away like that was made like five years ago, tops baseball, and still get almost weekly letters from collectors. Just opening this now. Some pretend to be a phantom fan of mine something I'm baseball player. Well, they just wanna complete collection. Oh, the last meet autograph in return it to. Let's see what this person says. Thank you Mr.. Besser thank you for your time, greatly. Appreciate it. If you would sign your card for me, I just found out that there were baseball cards of some of my favorite comedians. All this guy actually research that you've done a really cool thing with the UCB's. This guy, actually, he Google. Found we'll sometimes they do. It'll be like the last thing I did that I had like a line on, so I love your work and fresh off the boat. And you know. It was in the background. You just want to win. Hey, everybody I'm white. I'm not the boat. Oh. I love the bulletin board here at UC be in the office because he walked by adding glance at it, and they just get lots of an meal for anybody that performs your anytime. So a lot of times it is the return address stamped envelope thing. Just send me your autograph, but there's also many Donald Glover's back there like he's never gonna come. People had never show up. Camille of you ever gotten your mail off the wall back there? I have not looked. You should check. I don't think people associate me with the UCSB necessarily. That's true. I guess that's gonna tell myself, you probably have you probably have lots of stuff on the older board. The closed comic bookstore. Oh, how dare crying too. To why we didn't get down on me. We did use. We did use to get stuff at the meltdown when it was alive. It makes sense. Matt. A lot of time with that letter. So let's go to Demi. No. Why are we sitting there on the table. Otherwise, leave it in the greener. What was the last movie you saw? I never get out to movies by do watch the net flicks movies. Sometimes I enjoyed the scifi movies they make on the net flicks. Which one did I see extinction? I think one was called in by that. What happened? What happens? Do you wanna know. Yeah. Hence the quest. You give me the tattoo Gorey's at Munster's bookings. It's post apocalyptic. You think it has a very Philip k, dick twisty. I like any movie where at some point, one of the characters realizes that their robot and they looked down at their own intestines, they're like, oh, fuck. I'm a robot. This explains why I'm never hungry. Is to. Participating pooping. I hear so much. That's got a house, but I. But you give it thumbs up to this extinction movie. It's not the best I enjoy though other movies you watch you like that would have been really good if it was like an hour. Like a TV show like a black mirror pa-. So that's why that's why always think those are perfect length for you. Okay. You guys anyone here seeing that movie, don't we sat once already thought there'd be one person. Got before I fall. Have you seen that one girl one. Growing. She keeps dying. She keeps dying. It's like groundhog day, Chloe, grace. Maritz you know, happy death day. Is that what you're talking about? Is it called before I fall. Yeah, khloe glorious Morad's. Is that who is in it? No. No, you're thinking if I, if I stay. Shit that those those are similar titles before I fall. And if I stare too, very different titles, I don't know, man, three to lump them in with the big sick. The all sound the same to me. Three words mean anything. So. I do someone who was disappointed that there was illness in the big sick. We had so many clues. Gotcha. To third word of the title you knew what was. I was sold it. Oh, definite article. I'm into this. Do you feel though? Kumail now that sometimes gone by that. I have a theory about the big sick, and that's that it is a hilarious comedy in the movie theater and then just watching it on a device. It's just sad. It's the drama. That makes sense. Yeah, I know what you're saying. I really hate it. No, it's. I mean, the dramatic aspect of it like heighten is heightened because you're not laughing the whole time riot because jokes that are hilarious. When you're sitting with people right by yourself, it's still people looking around in the hospital. There's some things that were like that got huge last in the theater. And then when I saw it with like a smaller crowd, got like a very different, emotional. Yeah. I mean, I think it works either way. I didn't didn't want to be insulting. The atmosphere is tense. Doug has one, fuck candy cigarette. Get so crazy on those that I can't care control. My comments. Where we, we still Demi. What did he say Demi yet? I thought we were talking about before I fall. What was your last movie or fan letter? I saw Chris man. You sell Forsman? Yeah. Oh, it was. It was good. It's not like say an okay. Okay. All right. I'm over space movies, especially ones that are based on real stories because we know we know this Ryan Gosling character lives because he's been another movies, you think he lives. But has he been in any movies after that? No, that's a good point. Maybe he died. Maybe that's the last Ryan Gosling movie he ever. Does he ever do one of these in it? Does he ever go like this guys? Nice guys en LA La Land. Takes right. Awaiting sees the moon. Oh, it's right there. Moon so much bigger than I've seen it before. I thought it was going to be this big forest man. But what's the name of the astronaut? Do you know that it's about Neil Armstrong? Yeah. What. What did you said he doesn't might not live and he lived it said from LA La Land of that story. Yeah, he's going to open up a tapestry of jazz place on the moon. It's about Louis Armstrong. I thought it was what Lance Armstrong. Why did that work the other on throngs work. I just got here stretch stretch Dr. Got here. You guys talking about that. Phillies killed by registering. Guys out here. All the things. The wall things. So you thought it was fine. I thought it was good, but I do. So it's like very boring half of the time, and then the other half is just insanely tense action sequences. So it's weird to be like on the edge of my Siemens like, oh, I don't give a fuck about what they're saying right now. Oh, it's not like slow and then tense back and forth forth, but it's like really on the movie. Who are they shooting at you? What do you mean shooting. The camel. Shooting the moon, what is shooting the moon? Was it a callback? What's the action movie. Oh, no. It just going to like any flight sequence in the movie or like any time they have to do any fighting aliens. I guess. Yes, it's a lot like extinction. Cool. He looks down like, oh shit, I'm Neil Armstrong. And then the subject. The words you listen to this Amtrak a couple of times, but that's interesting. Damian Chazelle did LaLa land and then was like, now I'm going to do a Louis about going to space. Seems like he's talented enough music to row. He did for that was whiplash. And then before that was the grand piano, he wrote that yet. But he also made a movie guy and Madeline on park bench. There was another jazz musical men love jazz, right, and go to the moon. And the two things that he loves is I heard Gosling gives a low key, but but good performance. Yeah. Yeah. So Oscar worthy? No. All right. I'll tell them to suspend her campaign as well declared it so clear if you like it is good. Partner, what was the last movie? A simple favor. Okay. With Anna Kendrick in Blake, lively. I mean, that is the last movie theater. I make a small appearance in it. That's why demean gasped. What do you what? What happens in your seeing? I play. I mean, it's about a bunch of like kind of rich moms, so I'm just wanted the other moms who's like always worried about what's happening. What's one of your lines. Oh. This is the normal movie. Not like it's like a campy thriller. That was my line in fresh off the bone. Do you work in that nine this card. All right, Camille. It's up to you. Bring it home. I saw two recently. I'll name them about. I I saw a star is born. The newest star is born scoop well, manza scoop that's not even coming up for a while. Sink Shen seen it. Huge scoop. Excited about stars roaring because you know, some of the characters could die in it. Don't be alarmed stars, not gonna die. No. Not any. And the USA what you thought of it first or. A. What was the second movie gives us a second Mandy working. All right, Mandy and stars born. Head to head in brackets, which one wins very similar vibe. Yeah. I, you can't compare them because you know one you, I cried in the stars born. Mendis. Like if nNcholas cage was a movie. Like a whole movie is nNcholas cage. I don't know how they got everyone to act like I think they were like, hey, what would that guy's doing? Everybody do that. Everybody's nNcholas cage. It's great. I saw tastic they saw between worlds, which is another new nNcholas cage movie. Did you is hilarious in it? And the rest of the movie doesn't feel like they know that this is a nNcholas cage movie, like opposite of Mandy, like everyone's just kind of running around nNcholas cage being a nut, and he's very funny in it and everyone's being a normal, hilarious everything or or you know that some bad acting too, I guess. Did you did you see Mandy. Okay. Yeah, it's very, but she came and she gave without taking. Pooped without Keating. Going to pitch to your daughter now. Okay. I'm gonna be on it. I'm going to be a ghost writer for her. Turn it off. Burt let the games begin. We got name tags. And funk pop. Doll couple of couple of people brought those randomly, but, oh, Camille get up out of his seat. He just got his his Denache doll, everybody else. Please go select a name tag you'd like to play on behalf of. And while you do that, we'll how this, how did they note that I was going to be here? I did say we were going to have Oscar nominee here. Okay. I said Oscar losing individuals. Can it be. Oh, yeah. So anyway, we're going to break. We'll be right back.

Fri. 05/15 - Ghost of Tsushima gets a deep dive and Epic is giving away Grand Theft Auto V

"Welcome to the gaming ride home. Podcast for Friday may fifteenth. I Kyle Hillier. Here's a whole bunch of stuff that happened. Sony and developers sucker punch share a ton of new information about ghost. Cosima grand theft auto. Five is free on the EPIC Games store. Ubisoft is giving away both assassins creed discovery tours right now and. Reggie fees may joins the board of toy company. Sony Sucker Punch dive deep into ghost of Sushila yesterday. We got to see a ton of ghosts of Sushi. Gameplay that revealed a lot of new mechanics but the biggest reveal was that the game is not pronounced. Sushila it's pronounced Salima. I've been saying it all wrong for a really long time. One of my favorite things they showed is how you will navigate the environment. You still have a larger map that you can pull up to set markers but it doesn't look like there is a mini map instead. When you set a marker in the East for example the wind will blow to the East you can see the wind represented by white lines flowing through the air but you can also see the wind moving through the grass kicking up flower pedals it. It looks really stunning and in terms of things not marked on your map you can seek out stuff as you would in the typical open world game by just walking towards things that look interesting in the distance like smoke stacks are reared structures but animals will also appear and direct. You towards interesting things in the game play. A bird started flying beside the protagonist. Jin As he was riding on his horse pointing them in one direction and later Fox basically said like hey follow me over here you know without actually speaking English words and Jin ended up finding a shrine by following the Fox. Sucker Punch also confirmed that you can pet the Fox which is very important there are also little. I don't maybe even dumb touches that just make me so excited like how. Jin collected pieces of bamboo without having to stop and pick them up or even get off his horse and there was even one little bit right before engaging combat were Jin leapt off his horse in one fluid motion without interrupting his movement at all. It feels very sucker punch in a way that I love in that. They seem to be very focused on uninterrupted movement. It's what I love about. Their Past Games. The slide. Cooper Games in the infamous games. You're always on the move which I really like. Combat was the next highlight and they showed off how Jenkin basically single out combatants and engage with them in one on one fights. It's very fast and it looks like if you're skilled you can dispatch enemies very quickly which I like a lot. I love good combat. But I don't like spending a lot of time on a single enemy. Jin Blocked Arrows. His sword fired off an Arrow to take out someone a little further in the distance and the gains director. Nate Fox described Jin's combat as no wasted energy. Every strike must count stealth scenario was also shown and had some real ten shoe vibes which is an old. Ps One series about being stealthy Ninja. There were also some stealth cliches like distracting enemy with rock to get behind them and pull off his stealth kill but Jin also used firecrackers to distract a big group and used a smoke bomb when he was discovered to basically create a quick mask that he then used to burst through and quickly. Take out the enemy. Who just saw him. It was also during that sequence that Jin used a rope Dart Kunai to swing from one area to another the eighteen. Minute presentation finished out showing off the photo mode and some of the customization. Jin has all kinds of clothing options that give him various other raids and you can also collect different colored flowers to die them. Different colors and customize them. The photo is very detailed and features the typical options but you can also tweet the wind and add debris like flower petals to the air and you can even make short videos which is just one of those things where. I had a moment where I was like. Why don't all photo modes? Let you make short videos. That seems like such an obvious thing. The game can be played fully Japanese to make it feel more like the true Japanese Samurai Cinema. That has obviously inspired the game. But you can also play in black and white and ad film grain which is pretty cool. I walked away from the presentation. Very excited I was already excited for ghost of Sushi Emma based on sucker punches previous games but seeing all this game play and learning. How navigation works. And how you don't have to get off your horse to collect bamboo. It all just made me even more excited. I can't wait for the last of us. Partout but ghosts of Sushi is right now. My personally most anticipated game of the year. I cannot wait until July. Seventeenth grand theft auto. Five is free on the epic game store right now. The epic game store has really been going after steam since it launched by giving away free games all the time but right now it is giving away. Maybe it's biggest game ever with grand theft auto five. I have a link in the show notes to get the game from the epic game store but the rush to grab the game has really put a strain on the stores servers and they have intermittently been going down since yesterday. The good news is you have until May twenty-first to grab it though. So there is not a huge rush epic it's issuing various updates to its servers to try and mitigate traffic and then this morning a new era message is popping up that says your count is unable to download anymore free games at this time and epoch said if you receive this error. Please wait twenty four hours. You should then be able to proceed with downloading the game so go and try to grab a copy of grand theft auto five from the epic game store. But if it's not working go look at the at epic games twitter account to see what they're saying and you know also played a game if you haven't it's very good assassin's creed origins and Odyssey's discovery tours are free right now. Assassin's creed origins and Odyssey are both pretty great games about murdering a lot of people. But they're also pretty thorough simulations of the eras in which they take place ancient Egypt and ancient Greece respectively. The discovery tour is a mode that was added to both games after release that serves as an educational tool for the world's ubisoft his built it's basically like a virtual museum tour where you can walk around and learn stuff about the era and you'll be soft is giving both discovery tours away for free on pc right now you just need to create a ubisoft store account and you can grab them and start exploring a different era. There is a link in the show notes to go and download them. I think the discovery tour is just a great idea that takes advantage of all the research. Ubisoft is doing for these games anyway. Why not use them as educational tools former NINTENDO AMERICA PRESIDENT? Reggie fees may joins another board reggie fees May Nintendo America's charismatic president retired from readying his body last year. But it seems like he is having trouble. Relaxing along with joining game stops board of directors. An starting a podcast. He announced recently that he is now on spin. Master's board bees may tweeted. What do I have in common with? Bawku gone hatch. Moles Papa troll gunned. I'm not familiar with this. Wind Capital G. U. N. D. Air Hogs Saga many and kinetic sand answer. I am joining the board of Spin Master Corp an innovative forests in the Global Toy Industry. A new way to make life more fun. Visa May is a fun personality to keep track of and he will always be tied to Nintendo. It's his legacy. It's interesting to see him. Join Spin Master's board as unlike Sony and Microsoft. I think nintendo still considers itself toy company first and foremost as opposed to video game company. It's a good fit and I'm curious to see if he affects any change there maybe with his contacts to his old employer. We will see more licensed Nintendo toys from spin master. Maybe like Kirby hatchimal that opens up revealing all the things he's eaten maybe star Fox Air Hog. Some kind of picked men kinetic sand thing or something. Maybe Nintendo can risk in Star Fox zero and make the best pop patrol game ever made. You can have those ideas for free spin master. You'RE WELCOME. Here's what released today alongside some other released date announcements game announcements the Eternal Castle. Remastered is out today for switch. And it's a game. I really liked conceptually even if it didn't really get many critical accolades when it released on other platforms if you look at the games description on the Nintendo e shop it reads the Eternal Castle. Remastered is a remake of the original eternal castle from nineteen eighty seven with modernized game mechanics sophisticated sound design and two bit. Cj Graphics but that's a flat out lie. There is no eternal castle from nineteen eighty seven instead. The game is meant to feel like a release of a nineteen eighty-seven classic that you just never played. It looks and plays a little like another world or maybe Prince of Persia in that. It has really incredible animation but a very low pixel count. I missed it when it released on other platforms but watching the trailer. Today I am really tempted to check it out. I mean listen to the soundtrack. Don't you WANNA play? That sounds awesome. Hot Sooner. Mccoo project DIVA Mega. Mix is out today on switch which is the first time at an EMECO has been on switch if you're unfamiliar Hudson. Amigo is a vocal. Lloyd singer which means her voice is one hundred percent fabricated. She is not a real human but she is very popular. In Japan she even appeared on David. Letterman once it was very strange. It's a rhythm game with one hundred one songs the option to play with motion controls and it even has a t shirt. Designer Dungeon of the endless is out today on switch. It's a throwback sci-fi Dungeon exploration game with some rogue like elements and. It's this crazy story about a prison ship. Crashing on an alien planet and survivors discover an endless facility that they must explore to collect various materials. It came out on other platforms awhile ago but it's out on switch. Today Emma. Lost Memories is out today on pretty much everything including Vida and it's a platformer where all the platforms are constantly disappearing below your feet. Which is the medically tied to the character struggling to maintain her memory. I missed this one yesterday. But elder scrolls blades the free to play mobile game. That looks kind of like an elder scrolls. Game has left. Beta early access. It is now a one point game and is also available on switch. I played the IOS version for a few days but ended up not really engaging with it. Playing First Person Games on a touchscreen is just always kind of rough and the free play. Nature of the game is distracting. I'm kind of curious to try it on. Switch though with proper controls considering we won't be playing elder scrolls six or even learning anything about elder scrolls six for many years. This might be all we get in terms of new elder scrolls games at least for a little while and speaking of Bethesda Video Games. Doom Eternal Update one is out today. It adds a bunch of little fixes but also adds empowered demons which are stronger demons. That killed your friends that you have to then kill. There are also a number of events that kickoff today to collect. Various currencies and battle mode has been improved. Nothing too crazy but a lot of little touches that might make it worth revisiting the game or you know finishing it for the first time which I should probably do at some point more. Super Nintendo and any S Games are coming to Nintendo switch online subscribers on May twentieth wild guns which is sort of like a light gun shooter panel depan. A well liked puzzle game and logic bomb in overhead third person. Shooter are all Super Nintendo Games on the way. And the E. S. Game Moraga are a game that predates God of war but is also about a soldier in ancient Greece who flings a weapon attached to a giant Chand. They're all coming on May twentieth. We just got a harvest moon announcement with one world from not Suma a few days ago and today accede announced story of Seasons. Friends of mineral town is coming on July fourteenth to switch if you will recall. The story of seasons series is basically what became of the harvest moon franchise when developer marvelous lost the rights to make Games called harvest moon. So story of seasons May lack the harvest moon name an art style but it is harvest moon in fact. My understanding of the game is that it is a switch. Remake of the Gameboy Advance Game Harvest Moon friends which released on Nintendo's handheld platform back in two thousand three so it's a very confusing and weird thing. Please send me a correction if I'm misunderstanding. What this game is exactly? That's it for gaming news today. I am still playing and enjoying final fantasy thirteen. I made it to disk to which as far as I can tell the only way it acknowledges it is my safe filed just as disc two next to it now. I am playing the xbox three sixty version downloaded to an xbox one acts so it's all one big game file as opposed to multiple disks. I was hoping for some larger acknowledgement that I had moved over to a new disc. There was always something special about hitting a point in a game in the past relied to get up and swap disks mid. You really feel like you're making some incredible progress. I have a very vivid memory of moving to disc to in metal gear solid where I really felt like well. There is no going back then. We've got to finish this mission. Everything that's happened is behind us now. Literally on a separate disc that has now placed back inside of the case if you have corrections or just feedback from general. Feel free to send me tweets or DM's to either at Kyle M Hilliard at gaming ride home or you can send me an email. Kyle at ride home dot Info and please consider leaving review for the podcast wherever you listen to it. I know I say every day but it's helpful. It helps the podcast. You can also check out my Twitter Account Kyle Impersonator Ryan playing through Resident Evil Code Veronica x right now speaking of changing disks and moving on. I hit like a big changing point in that game. I'm playing as a different character like talking around it because I don't want to Spoil Resident Evil Code Veronica X in case you were planning on playing it but I'm enjoying that game. It's it feels like it keeps ending and then keeps going which is Kinda cool and surprising in an interesting way you can also find me on the mid Mac show for more long form video game discussion. I will talk to you more about video games on Monday.

She feels fortunate. sugarhill is still attracting people from New York City and Boston is probably around seventy percent. Compared to last year's numbers, which I think is pretty darn good during a pandemic, but it's still dealt a blow to her profit. coattail also removed a third of the tables in her restaurant to spread the rest further apart.

During a two thousand, fifteen short term mission trip to Senegal good had an encounter that compelled her to embark on a five year retirement plan then covid nineteen ended her last year much sooner than she expected that caused her to reconsider leaving but then in prayer I just felt like, okay, it's not like God when he told me five years ago it was like now he's like, Oh, I forgot about this pandemic thing. Oh, now wait a minute. Wait an extra year while good already had plans to retire this summer many other teachers didn't now they're grappling with whether to retire, resign or take unpaid leave of absence rather than face a workplace riddled with uncertainty and health risks. Good many don't want close the curtain on decades of faithful service during such an unsettled time. Veteran, Spanish teacher Beth leach retired abruptly this summer from Garrett High School just north of Fort Wayne Indiana she and her husband Kevin are both in their sixties and Kevin is already a heart survivor concerns about bringing the virus home outweighed leeches desire to continue a profession. She loved it was tough. I had dreams nightmares and a lot of lost sleep and. It's not just those in higher risk age groups exiting the profession. Some younger teachers fear burdening their children with apparent compromise long-term by the virus forty, two year old Heidi, his riches one of them she recently made the tough decision to resign her position as an award-winning science teacher at Eastern Indiana's Richmond high school I feel peace with most of the time. I'm not regretting the decision, but I am grieving deeply and it kind of comes ways. No one knows how many more teachers will leave during the coming weeks as schools wrestle down to the last minute with their fall plans. But signs point to a looming wave of departures. Michigan's Teacher's Union surveyed more than fifteen thousand of its members in May more than thirty percents said at that time, they were seriously considering retiring early or leaving the profession according to the US Department of Education. The average annual rate of teacher attrition across the country is just eight percent. The expected exodus could leave many schools with staffing gaps. Eric Williams is superintendent. Virginia's Loudon County public schools just outside of Washington DC. He told school board members in late July that staffing concerns were a major consideration in the district's decision not to return to in person learning the latest information we. Believe that the school year should star with a hundred percent distance learning with limited or no exceptions and proceed with implementing plan hybrid model in stages Loudon is one of three major districts around Washington to recently scrapped plans for in person classes that includes Virginia's massive Fairfax County public schools, which reported double its usual number of teacher leave requests. District officials also reported that another ten percent of its teaching force requested health exemptions under the Americans with disabilities act. Beckon Michigan Catherine good prayed about whether now is the right time to retire. She ultimately decided it was but not quite for the reason she had five years ago all along in my head my plan is Ben when I retire I wanted to go back to the mission field by parents are eighty, eight, eighty, nine years old and I helped them with lots of things because I live ten minutes away. So I feel kind of like in terms of got. Plan was mission field but I think for right now God's plan is carried from my parents reporting for world I'm Laura Edgehill.

No doubt you have grumbled when encountering problems getting from Point Eight to point be by air and when you do if you do, it's always wise to remember this little average better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air than in the air wishing that you were on the ground while pregnant mom crystal Hicks has to be one who falls into that. Latter category no doubt she would have preferred being on the ground she had to board a plane in remote Glen Allen Alaska and by remote I mean you know promote population four, hundred, eighty, three, she needed medical attention. She was thirty five weeks along and had to get the anchorage, which is about one hundred, fifty miles as as the crow flies you mean as the stork flies. something. Something that flies. Yes.

She starts having contractions she goes into labor she has to deliver before the plane lands and as she's filling in the birth certificate information eighteen, thousand feet in the air the choice of name for Her little son was obvious she named him.

Today is Tuesday August eighteenth you're listening to world radio and we're so glad you are a good morning to you. I'm Nick Eicher and Mary Record. Economic shutdowns very in severity across the country even as protests continue in many U. S. cities after the death of George Floyd groups like black lives matter and others have gathered for three months. Now, sometimes peacefully, other times not in Ohio officials estimate protests and have cost the state millions in property damage and overtime policing in the midst of the chaos. One pastor is using a different method of protest praise and worship world correspondent Maria. Baier has his story. means. Pentecost Sunday Bishop Johnny Amos of Shiloh Christian Center in Columbus Ohio marched his congregation downtown. Got Move greatly but didn't know exactly what he was going to do. But I had a sense of expectation saw day before Columbus police had declared a state of emergency as impassioned protesters marched downtown. Some broke windows spray painted buildings and scuffled with police officers. The mayor asked the public to avoid the area Bishop Amos heard another word. The Lord says I wanted to go downtown. And So I went I told the Church Hey Laura says it's time for us to be mobile. Shiloh Christian center is just a few blocks from the Ohio statehouse when Amos and his congregation arrived there on pentecost Sunday they made a bit of a scene A. Matter Group called ANTIFA. Had taken over right heater broad in in high street. They heard US worshiping praising God and they all came around us. Is surrounded US and they listened to for a minute. They start. Yelling. Is Matter George Lewis Black Matador for Dopey Amos's group included several other churches he'd invited through. Social Media. A few minutes after the chanting broke out there came a moment of peace. We begin the meal, pray the seal. and. A good portion of the meal old when we need. It was powerful to news guy says, these people are really though to it was the beginning of something on one hand. It was the beginning of weeks of protests that would cost downtown Columbus businesses and the government, an estimated one point two, million dollars in damage and counting. On the other hand, it was the beginning of a summer of praise for Shiloh Christian center. Bishop Amos an African American man says he too was outraged by George Floyd's killing. He says God calls his people to stand for justice. One of the strongest weapons in that fight he says worship or worship could be our protest, and so this could be our offering right to protest. So Amos declared thirty days of race two hours of lunchtime, praise and worship every day complete with pianos, guitars, microphones, and big black speakers he and his congregation and anyone else who wanted to join gathered on the state. House. Lawn each afternoon for an entire month. Churches from all over Ohio volunteered to lead worship and traveled to Columbus to take part. At the beginning of the thirty days, Amos tried to get a permit but the city had temporarily halted the permitting process because of the riots. The police told, Amos, he'd have to move his group from the state, House lawn to the city sidewalk he complied. then. Police said the corporate tenants of nearby skyscrapers we're complaining about the noise and so we. Redirect our speakers and we turn it down again. So we count adjusting was we got complained so they gave me told me just to do. Some days the crowd grew too few dozen worshipers especially when churches brought groups from out of town. The music attracted onlookers every day giving Amos and others the opportunity to share the gospel. We had over thirty thirty-five souls say. Since we've been down here yesterday we bat ties. A to people yesterday, we talked mostly though a dozen or so dedicated prayer warriors comprised the group that gathered each day on the State House lawn. The thirty days of praise came and went peacefully but quickly a little too quickly, it turns out. To be a continual presence of the Lord. Bow Town. We are now all the summer page. That we played we'll be here all summer until the Lord tells us not to be so on a sunny weekday afternoon in early August Amos and his crew are still here. The Ohio state windows all along the ground floor are still boarded up with plywood. A handful of peaceful protesters wearing black lives matter shirts have set up a tent a few dozen yards from Amos's group. But there's no tension here just a few car horns and worship and call on your own but to come and change everything recall on your presence. Somebody Amos says the city police still drive by just about every day. They've told him he'll probably get a citation soon it hasn't happened yet. Despite the pressure from police Amos says a few local state, highway? Patrolman have privately thanked him for what he's doing. A handful of patrolman our station to the State House every day. They've told Amos they think his group has stopped some of the more aggressive protesters say this. Old. ADAGE SAYS USING COM SAVAGE VS. We've seen it. They are told us you guys. Their brain. They hey. Still. This isn't about a battle with other activists. Amos says his ultimate goal is to bring the word of God to a hurting city. This is exactly what needs to be. Released at streets. Peace, our streets are adding so. A. Reporting for world I Maria Bear in Columbus Ohio. Today is Tuesday August eighteen good morning. This is the world and everything in it from listener supported World Radio I'm Mary Record and I'm Nick Anchor here is journalism professor world commentator less Cillers, now on par patrol and the truth. During the recent riots canceled culture warriors went after positive portrayals of police. Here's Fox News commentator Stuart Varney in June. The TV show called COPS canceled after thirty two seasons and then believe it or not. There is poor patrol what my grandson loves Papa troll that is an animated TV show featuring chase a cartoon German shepherd who helps people in a police uniform but that's bad for social media is full of demands to take chase off the air. This verney said is a direct threat to free speech marries no real debate no. Real free speech if even mild pro police opinions or shows a Senate No, no says Zach Beecham. A writer at VOX DOT com. The free speech debate isn't really about free speech. He argued and canceled culture warriors do so support open debate. There have always been limits on free speech he pointed out the question is who gets to draw the boundaries social justice activism doesn't restrict freedom argued it expands it sure maybe the overreach bid sometimes, but they're just shifting the boundaries left to let silence and oppressed minorities speak and it's about time. It was an amazing piece of Sophistry Beach. Him turned a partial truth about free speech into an argument that silencing the views of half the country enhances free speech Yes free speech has limits and it should the founders never intended. The First Amendment to mean anyone can say anything they wanted to ensure citizens could criticize governments without punishment, but they supported reasonable limits and laws against things like liable. The recent shift leftward obviously narrows the. Bounds of free speech, but there's an even bigger problem. Free speech only works. If everybody is seeking the truth in good faith Milton argued in sixteen, forty, four that I paraphrase if you let truth and falsehood battle it out in a free and open encounter truth will win that way. We can find justice and settle conflicts with words not armies but some people are really searching for truth not if it limits autonomy that to win. That's when free speech leads to chaos. It's why truth doesn't always win in the Public Square. Cancel culture isn't about searching for truth. It's about equity and power, Beecham wrote that it's about quote making historically marginalized voices feel comfortable enough in the public square to be their authentic selves to exist honestly and speak their own truths unquote exactly. Their truths, not the truth. For Council Culture Warriors speech is just a tool for exerting power. Of course, they'll try to silence other views we should stop being surprised by this free speech is important, but we also have to affirm the existence of absolute truth. We can't know all truth, but surely, we can know some truth. That's because of the one who is the way the truth and the life. We proclaim that truth regardless of what the culture tries to cancel. I'm less fillers. Tomorrow we will check in on the presidential campaign with world's Jackie Dean and last month marked the thirtieth anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act will hear from people whose lives improved as a result fat and more tomorrow I'm nick. And Mary, record the world and everything in it comes to you from world radio. World's mission is biblically objective journalism that informs educates and inspires rejoice in hope he patient in tribulation be constant in prayer go now in grace and peace.

Yes you know she's going on like forty five. She knows everything she was has always has and she is a masterclass emotional manipulators. I found her this weekend. Oh fantastic here's to hugs to tears in in about thirty seconds flat. She's also always kind of been like that. Though she's indeed she gets you indeed so Karen. You know a little bit about our show. which is that we seem to find ourselves constantly saying things that we never thought that we would have to say so? Please tell us what is your never thought that I'd say this with your kids so mine was several years ago my daughter autre asked me a question in my response never thought I'd say no. Mommy's is are not broken to explain that but yes so I I am as you can probably tell by my last name Korean. I obviously see really. I'm DOS green screen. I I I was adopted when I was two by a white family in New York and I'm full blood screen as far as I know and so my daughter was looking at some pictures that were up around the house and she looks at her. My mom my adoptive mom who's white and her dad's mom my my ex is Italian Italian and she looks at the three pictures and she sort of looks at me and then looks back at the pictures and looks at herself in the mirror and says mommy what's wrong with your eyes what now she's like. Well like look at Grandma's eyes and look at Nana's is and even my eyes like they're kind of open and big big like what's wrong with your eyes. I said well there's nothing wrong with my eyes. There are just different so go wire they different and how come you don't look like grandma and I was like Oh okay so on this Sunday morning before my coffee. We're going to have this conversation sweet awesome and so thank thank you now was this was it the adopted conversation. Asian conversation was both both and you know we had just recently watched. Kung Fu Panda which thank you dream works because that really helped explain like you know income. Fu Panda pose pose data goose but po is a panda so Salamis is kind of the same and it. It's just really especially because it's like Asian and I guess goose's could be Jews so well. I if I were GONNA make an assumption about a goose that would be kosher kosher truly. If you eat it covered in cheese gyms gyms rab if a rabbi kills the shirts delicious. I'm going to defer to you on this conversation. Let me also say so. Karen and I have known each other for almost twenty years now 'cause we went to and I was crazy. We went to Grad school together and the whole way that we we met with that. She was laid to orientation station. I had gotten orientation. We'd never met before. I'd gone the wrong way to orientation and I was walking back and she was walking the wrong way that I just walked so I stopped her abrasive. Lee Apparently and was your day off interface and was like a New Yorker and I was like it's this way and as walking I just look at her and and she had come on which is Jewish and I just looked at her and I go what's that about and yes hello stranger with the tax she grabbed add my hand and I don't like being touch touch grabbing like okay strange lady touching me asking me really personal questions. I don't yeah I'm I'm actually Jewish and I'm adopted. It's like Oh okay well. We're late so now we go back story and then the and then we went to we went to I mean like it was interesting because you I wouldn't have thought that obviously she was Jewish which was a stupid assumption on my part and it was a good lesson to to me honestly because it was like why did I feel like even ask you that by the way like because you're totally inappropriate no boundaries. I had not gone too much. It's better partner learned this was before I went back to Grad School. I'm just saying this was Grad school orientational before she before she staedtler where the seller human beings for us right now so I want to go back to this you know I'm adopted as well so I love that that's a topic thank uh-huh yeah are getting to bring up because I think as adoptees and adoptive parents and things like that and I think to our generation was there. I mean probably in your situation because it was more obvious but I do feel how so but I I to really made this uncomfortable but I do feel like adoption was something that although you talked about it was sort of a weird like dirty little L. Secret Yeah it was it somehow made you less of a less of a child unless of apparent that in it a real overnight a real right people are like Oh is that your real parents and you're like well. I mean they fed me. They put up with my shit. They asking me out of the house yet so yeah heard better than a lot other than anyone else's but I do feel like it's something that until until I was a lot older like really in my twenties I didn't. It wasn't isn't something that I discussed very often. It wasn't something that I talked about because it was something that I think I saw as like that. I didn't want to somehow de-legitimize my family that it that we weren't and it was also something that because of the way I grew up and being the business and sort of my background and things like that I think my parents we're really worried about people hearing my story and you know people coming out of the woodwork and things like that so that's kind of added a little different thing but it was a really strange strange thing to carry around as a kid and I just wonder what that was like for you because it must be you know obviously people were like Oh. These are your adoptive parents or whatever and how did that like how going through that change the relationship with your parents yeah and so a my adoptive parents have if a thrilled two brothers who are biologically my parents children and then they adopted me so. I'm the youngest. I'm the only girl and again because I I am. I'm older. I'm I'm forty five you know when I was adopted when I was two there. Were not a lot of transracial adopted family so is very unique so there was always a lot of attention attention and in loss chester in Westchester and I grew up in in predominantly white area and so I often felt objectified defied and it's no it's no fault of anybody was just so unusual compared to now and I live in Long Beach now where there's all sorts of mixed different combinations and permutations families it was it was it was sometimes challenging just to be seen as a novelty. I I have to explain myself Sylvia. Even if it's coming from a place that I wanted to connect always feeling like you have to explain your existence in in your identity good job Celia I ca- Jackson because I just dropped my kids. It's off campus or they're going to camp at the Jewish community center of course because I'm a good Jewish mother. Well summer's over. Oh I know both good and bad. It is good and bad. I mean the good thing. Is You know I'm not fighting off mosquitoes this as much as I used to be but I am cooking a lot more. Oh good yeah which is nice except that. I don't always have time to cook and I definitely don't always have time took. Something healthy and I'm trying to be really healthy. I've know I've mentioned that a thousand times and I don't want to look for recipes. I can't stand going to the grocery store especially when it's really crowded crowded and I just sort of get overwhelmed and so I have been using daily harvest ooh about them yeah. They are awesome. They make everything so easy and healthy. Oh Fi you get more fruits and vegetables. It's all really thoughtfully. Source is chef crafted food and it can be prepared in less than five minutes. ooh Less than five minutes great that imams that's about all the time. You have not only that you've sixty five different options like ready to blend smoothies. One of which I had the other day it was cherry and it was so young I hated actually having to share it with my kids. I didn't want to yeah. They got some because they wanted it but got was really yummy. They also have soups soups and they have these really great harvest bowls. The one that has these beats and macadamia nuts is my favorite by far everything is really fresh in your freezer until you're ready to eat it which I love and it's one step to repair it comes in a Little Cup and it's just one step you just have to add your favorite milk to a smoothie and you know blended and it's just great you can add things into your harvest bowls so easy and everything is just amazing fresh bread that easy fresh healthy yeah yeah you can't go wrong and if you WANNA try daily harvests then all you gotta do is go to daily harvest dot.

Say This for twenty five dollars off your first box at daily harvest dot com that is daily harvest. I DOT COM and you can be easy and healthy exactly well. You know what I mean. And how did your kids respond to sing. Your your eyes weren't broken like what was that yeah like. How do they actively and you've told them planet option. Did they get it kind of. They kind of got it. You know it's I think in part because especially in Long Beach like they have friends whose parents are lesbians and they have other family adopted and there are lots of a mixed ethnicity couples so for them sort of the quote unquote not matching parents and kids is not that big of a deal actually very funny when my ex and I got divorced. My son was the start of a funny story always funny. This actually is my son asked his dad. So when's mommy getting a girlfriend. What now 'cause you mommy are divorced now. So why is mommy getting a girlfriend because the only divorce couples couples he knew were lesbian couples so he just equated divorce with being a lesbian so he just assumed that I was going to become a lesbian. Was that easy I know right double in your wardrobe with men anymore yeah yeah yeah so so they're kind of used to that idea and you know. I explain Senate very simply and there actually are more and more adoptive scenarios where the adopted per child isn't evil because for very long time almost every single movie at stripped adopted child always goes bat shit. Crazy usually kills everybody but in kill anybody. I just want to be clear batch of crazy with mindset but yeah uh I didn't. I stopped at that yeah and you know now that I'm older people just assume I married and nine times out of ten ten. I don't correct them. They assume it's my married name. 'cause Rothstein is my maiden name right right. and I just don't correct them anymore. Going to temple with my ex husband was really entertaining because they all thought he was Jewish and they they would on it and then say saw. What did you think of the service. Did you enjoy the Hebrew like bitch. I actually taught English. You don't need to speak to me like I don't speak English well. I actually was in English teacher by thank. You very much really loud. Do they talk to you really very slow slowly very patronising and again like it's it's easy to take that and turn it into being very negative which I think I spent a lot of my life being very angry about it being upset and then you just eventually unsually have the moment where you realize it takes a lot more energy to think the world is against you and fighting it and you just let it go and you just give people the benefit of the doubt and you say when people ask you what you are that they're trying to connect albeit in a very inappropriate uncomfortable way but I guess of in the Hallway. What is that what's going on so teach idiots like that still working progress. That's right years. We're almost there HAMAS timing. I think it's really what do always have that you do your kids ever have to deal with any forms of questions or or you know. Can I tell what happened to her. The other day I was actually so you were at all and it was it was her daughter's birthday party on Saturday and you got we went to a movie about the kids and we went she. She went in to go and get like the kids snacks whatever ordered so I was outside with another lady who I didn't know whose kid was running around and a and and on my mom's names of the kids by the way I'm sorry but it was there was a there was a Sienna era there. There was a willow Jesus Christ. Were like going through the anyhow John got. Her name is Linda Names Kalinda John. Yours would have been proud this Lulu Blue Mines Lulu and Harper Luna Luna so very like you need to know to i. It was ridiculous. It was like the Moon ooh stars in a tree like it was a lot and my Sankai means ocean. It was a lot of work that we're really hippie. La assholes basically what it felt like but I have a jar of Kombucha with you shut up today and a big floppy hat. I don't wear the big floppy hats I guess she does no. I have no floppy hats. You made me get in one hat. I protest that I will okay any any who she was. She was in the room and the move theater and I I was with another mom and this other mom came to drop off her daughter and started talking to the mom that was with me and then assumed that the mom that was with me it was actually Kalinda his mom not that Karen wasn't had because Kelly doesn't look Asian particularly like they never met and they'd never met and so she was talking talking to this mom that wasn't Kelly's mom thinking that because they hadn't met that was her and just may just assumed that wasn't Asia and it was just so fascinating because it was the first time that I as your friend had ever seen anything like that happen and it made me realize that must happen to your kids a lot so then. We've obviously never gone for a manicure there. Is there a story yes so hold on. I'm going to tell them at any time we've ever gone anyplace and there are Korean people. They always guilt you. There is like why are you on a speaker so hey I was gonna ask to do people naturally assume you identify with events okay so in New York City almost all the manicure Sir Korean up here. They're mostly Vietnamese but it back in New York where I'm from and they became an ongoing joke with any new nail salon I went to I will go through the same exact sequence of questions they would start doing my nells and then they would say are you. Korean and I'd say yes and then they would say something to mean Korean and I'd smile politely say I have no idea what you say and they would say. Why don't you speak any Korean and I would say hello strange person? Yes I will have to explain my life story while you file my nails. I'm adopted did and so I don't speak any current. Oh and then they would start going off a mile a minute and Korean to other people and start laughing that happened when we were at the Korean spa yes and it it happens yeah any time. I'm in an environment where they are Korean people I have to explain myself to complete strangers and and it's just an and I would say like depending on my mood most the time not a problem at every now and then I am not in the mood for it and I we'll get quite abrasive about it but again. I tried to give people the benefit of doubt that they're trying to understand the I think so I mean I guess it is at the same time feeling like people are making assumption the same time like Doc. I would probably make the same assertion or not to raise or anything like you just kind of go like Oh. That's an incongruous matching or you know what I mean. I mean honestly asked about trump's because as a Jew I was like why somebody who's not Jewish wearing a homicide. Is that just like you just think it's pretty and do you know that's a Jewish symbol like I went to my own culture culture without thinking what her story might be and that's why I asked because I was like Oh whoa cultural appropriation that what you're doing I once got cornered at a Jewish speed dating eating event by a bunch of very angry little Jewish women who were like. Why are you here as like I WANNA. meet a guy but so you know it's. Jewish speed dating event as I guess I'm Jewish. No you're not as a young young like. Would you like me to Chamois for you. I can Shamalia motherfucker and I don't even I don't know what that is. Maybe it was a interpretive dance with it but it's the prayer that you you do like at every service imitating. Neil diamond to you Lord our God Lord Lord is one and I do it in Hebrew Neil diamond though she has eight mealtime no long way not at all impersonating. Neil diamond at all is strange weird. You know my husband did not think it was sexy. Z. Was total. I don't know why that's a shocker. Neil diamond hot hollow anyway so anyway sidebar Dr so so again put Neil diamond as an important side but is noise eibar one time inside diamond okay so going back. Let's bring it back to the original question about my children and being a mother It's been very interesting because of now that they're a little bit the older they are much more aware about race ethnicity and they've asked me so we're half. Korean right and said yes. You're Korean now. You're half Italian. I said however however like we don't have any identification with Korean culture because I mean other than I like Korean barbecue like I'm the Korean as you are. Yes yes and so I have a feeling that they accept it right now but that's something they're going to continue to you sort of wrap their head around because my son does look more Asian than my daughter is. My daughter looks more Caucasian so just they're we're going to have to navigate that space but because there are so many again different permutations in the and and multiracial kids are the highest growing you know greatest growing demographic traffic. It's going to be less and less of a thing not certainly not like the was when when I was growing up and adoption yeah when we were growing up my kids particularly my little one is really interested in hearing my story because you know to them. Adoption is sort sort they don't. They probably sure that they are you. Take your shoes here like build all our bills all over. Her sounds like she's seen of coffee. I have another one on my right now. It felt like that afterward. That's what you should go to a speed dating event by the way in show boyfriend in in a heartbeat but my kids are really fascinated by might option story because it's something that they for them is really unique and and so strange that like these these people took me in. That's so weird but my my little one. She always feel sorry for me. I've seen her say this she she always like. I'm so sorry that no one loved you. I've been there when she said much feel really sorry that that your mom didn't want you and I was like see I be using that as a cautionary town bill. Sp Stop giving you away to. Can you imagine if I said that the mind please. I'M GONNA say it to my kids instead adopted so it's guys as the example well you guys. You know what rescued happen to you right shit together care and Ju- Asian doesn't know who she he is. You could be like that Great Skin Shit Program all day all day but but it's funny because trying to explain to them that like actually it's a really it's a really good thing and I but that also is has been my process because I think think for a long time I felt sorry for myself that somehow I was wanted or I wasn't loved it enough to keep. We're good enough to write all all of the things that adoptees. I think feel that we don't talk about because we don't want our parents to think that they're not enough and we don't want you know anyone else in our life to think that somehow we we don't love them or that. We're so it's a it is being adopted sort of puts this weird cloak of like secrecy on you about so many things that you can't tell your family your friends other because you're constantly trying to manage other people's love you and your expectations and their expectations of lying. You know you're good enough. You're GONNA an and but it's a really interesting interesting thing and I've talked to two other adoptees about it and it is sort of this universal thing that we all feel and deal with and that it takes a while to kind of get over so it was funny when when be said that to me and she was like I'm so sorry that that that they got rid of you and you know had she said that to me. When I was seventeen one one it would be weird because I'd have a nine year old at seventeen. Let's let's let me a little older. Maybe at twenty five had seventeen seventeen year old me would have heard someone say that in a very different absolutely yeah you know even twenty something year old me would have heard a very very different what have gotten something very different out of that like. Oh my God you're right like I know you're right. Nobody wanted me. I was unlovable or whatever and instead I remember when and she said that to me. I I laughed and I said No. That's not how it is at all. I was like some people just aren't capable of giving the love that that little kid needs and so they find people who have so much love that they wanna give to somebody else you and trying to end it for the first time instead of saying the words like Bullshit Bullshit Bullshit like I actually believe that and I was like yeah that is that is the story of adoption. It isn't about being rejected. It's about being loved so much that it doesn't matter where you came from or who you are or what you look like that they will love you anyway and I think really when when I shifted my thinking around adoption to e. instead of being rejected I was so overwhelmingly loved that I was taken in regardless of who I was that I was just loved so much and that when I looked at it like that I was like. Oh okay so like being able to have that conversation with my kids now having being done so much healing I think is is is a much different conversation and now be wants to adopt all of the babies. She wants to adopt like eight babies good yeah. I don't know that she yeah. I don't know that she's going to do that but shook. Louis Yeah well. She won't you wait till she's a little bit older. Maybe seventeen at least okay. I never see you wearing glasses and I know but those are adorable right. You look so good. I I love them to want to know where the from of course all right well there from worby Parker ooh yeah they're they're brand new and I don't always like to wear glasses this but I'm finding that I love these.

I wear with the purpose which I love almost one billion people worldwide lack access to glasses and this means that fifteen percent of the global population cannot effectively learn or work mark which is crazy right because glasses were invented seven hundred years ago so we should really be on top of this worby.

It's true take it takes more than biology to make you a mother where you know right which I thought was so great right from the opposite side of someone who doesn't have a relationship with with her mother by choice now because it was you know so toxic. It's like and people say to me. You know like well. How can you not talk to your mom and I'm like because I have to do that for my own. Wellbeing takes more than biology to be a good mother makes your mother but she's so entertaining. I know she is so entertaining. I got good stories about her coming up but yeah it's interesting because you guys both have talked to me also like separately about the fact that when you each had kids it was the first time Hi Matt you had people that were biologically related to you and you could see thing yeah in your in your kids that you saw yourself and someone who's you know. It was not adopted like that's I. I mean everything for somebody outside and and you know speaking. I guess for myself but I suspect for many people who know people who are adopted adopted. It's hard for us to we. Don't know what we're supposed to say. It is still a dirty little secret right. I haven't said to you when I said let's have. Karen and I know I phrased it. As is it okay if we talk about the fact that you're adopted because I know you're Jewish up sure you whispered in the can't. We don't say those words right. It was like it was it was like right right for once she wasn't Abrasive it was it was a pleasant because now it all for lodging. You got got sick. The family thing is interesting because I remember when I was pregnant with my son. I consciously think consciously have put so much on this idea of finally having a biological connection to somebody that when he was was born and I didn't feel that I was devastated and it really impacted my relationship with both my now ex husband and also my son that I felt doubly like a failure because you all feel like a failure is a mom like everybody thinks they're doing a shitty job in racing psychopaths but some are are yeah. I'll tell you won't be in Net flicks special. do we get the right obviously yes and it was it was heartbreaking for me that I would look at my son like this was supposed to fix me This was supposed to make me feel connected and finally hole and did it really struggled with well. I had the opposite experience experienced because you know my story and I've been pretty public about talking about. I've talked on my book and stuff. You know my mom was in jail. When I was born famous. You wrote a book I did. I she's on TV some self published no but I I and I was saying I got him at care. You heard your mom. Your mom was in prison therapists. I remember what you were saying because I was listening. Just saying now that I've been trained my friend rally here existence to my important story validate me now so so so for me. My story was my mom had been in jail. When I was born. My father was in prison then. He was killed in a prison riot when I was nine months old so I didn't you know I didn't have any biological connection. I had raised her but she was not a around. She couldn't take me on the hospital. She was still in jail all this up and you know for me because of everything I went through trying to get sober and all the stuff I remember I held onto this resentment with my mom for so long that biological biological mom excuse me my biological mom about the fact that we have to to not differentiate early. Good example might interrupt you because I know what I'm talking about but it sounds like I have a whole bunch of resentments at my my adoptive mom which is not true anymore now. She's chanting no but sh- my mom is by the way but my biological logic mom I had this deep resentment because I always felt like it was somehow. I wasn't important enough to make her get her life together that I now mind you there were half siblings and there are all kinds of but I remember once I had my daughter and I was trying to get get my life together and I was trying to do you know do all these things and get sober and get you know really become who I needed to be. I remember after I had my daughter everything changed because I looked at her and I went oh my own problems and struggles and everything I'm going through have nothing to do with you and have nothing to do with with your value how much I love you how much I want to be a mom any of that two completely different things and unfortunately one affects the other really huge way it was in that moment for me that I finally found a huge amount of relief and forgiveness pretty mature for seventeen year old thank you it's nice if we broke up tents emotional moments ah motions we're not a runaway but yeah but it was you know talking about it was for me that connection to having having something and having my own struggles and going through it made me realize her biological mom's own humanity and her own feelings and we asked that had nothing to do with me up and that was that I think was probably the most important shift and change that I went through in my life was finally dropping that huge ball of anger of and I don't know if you had resentment and anger towards your biological parents or I. I don't know if that was something that ever came up for you but I feel like it's pretty frequent and comes up a lot so you went looking right so yeah so I in my twenties. I found out the sort of truth in a nutshell. My parents were young in Rural Korea and my biological mother died about about a week after I was born but don't know the circumstances however I found out afterwards that I don't know how much of that is true. My father remarried has kids and I don't know how much of it is true because there's a lot of shame attached to adoption in Korea so I was lied to by corrine social services because they didn't want me to my biological. Father didn't actually want to meet me in the average and told me he did and because they didn't want me to be disappointed. I think the really funny moment was right. After I found out a friend of mine at work I was teaching at the time said this might be too early but this loud Jew from New York right and he's like I'm just picturing picturing you right now like in like a rice patty field pulling in oxygen behind you one of those ridiculous hats and he's like I know that's totally inappropriate and insensitive but it's just so far from who you are but that's who you could've been and you would look exactly the same but you'll be some like rural farmer as a High School English teacher Jew from New York. I'm curses like a sailor won't be at Columbia. I want to be oppressed right so that was really Andre but what I was thinking that too. I'm like Oh my God my life a holdup horribly in an orange jumpsuit but arm has your color. I think you look good. You were never arrested. Yeah I was but you know it's just such an interesting thing like talking about how your path from a choice that and and it really makes this thing about a choice. That wasn't ours yeah that we didn't make for our own lives completely altered the course events. It's of who we became crazy yup and the going back to your question about the anger yeah a lot a lot of it almost just like not direct anger anger Henry. You're near me you got spotted with anger but then I went and saw the Kayla Kayla Yeah and issued a constellation therapy who is based out of L. A. She does it with her husband. Bruce and so you you and I talked to you about it right after family constellations for those of you don't know are done a Lotta Times in therapy and treatment and it's when you sort out of recreate the family dynamic using the usually the identified patient or the person in the middle and then everyone around them and you can step into each role of your family and talk like you are that role so you can see where they're coming from so I don mine and then I told you you should go and do it and it I I will say and I'm not exaggerating and I I am not a Hippie dippy can Bucci Kinda wanted it changed my life and it changed my relationship with my family and I did it a couple of years ago so up until it was in my early forty so for for about forty years I was just angry and hurt and just never had a great relationship with my adoptive family. It had its moments where it was okay but it took so much energy for me to get to that place and for the first time in that session I acknowledged my biological mother and spoke to her and I never ever once in my entire. Life acknowledged her existence. an actually spoke to her so. Leah took on embodied her and I spoke to her and it was like I instantly became this child and I said you know I just I just want to feel loved and I wanNa feel have a quote unquote normal relationship with my mother and amongst other things I've been in when I got out of that I immediately contacted. My adoptive family and apologized college is to them for how angry I had been for so long and I talked to my my adopted mother and I said I've been so angry with you because I wanted you to be my biological mother and and you could never be that and she's like I never wanted to be that I never I know I couldn't be that for you and it's said just took me this long to realise that you will never be that woman and that's okay because you're something else and you're equally as valuable in my life and that moment was a complete turning point and I actually was just talking to my mom and dad on the phone driving up here. which is I I really don't talk on the phone like that? Voluntarily like call them and you you know it just is so it's so different and I think acknowledging that the your adoptive family is not the same as your biological family it never will be and that's okay right that they both can exist in he exactly that is incredible and very moving well yeah and and I love to hear the story of somebody else. Who you know kind of shares? This weird familial history us US adopt these. I think there is kind of an immediate. Get Bond of like Oh you get this. You understand this in a way that most people don't so to all our adopted moms out there to all our moms and dads out there who have adopted kids. It's it's an amazing experience and it really is.

Joe Biden's Unwelcome Affection & Trump Exacerbates the Migrant Crisis | Hakeem Jeffries

"You're listening to comedy central. April two thousand nine hundred. From comedy central's world news headquarters in New York. This is the daily show with Trevor Noah, here's the. Thank you. The show that's getting to it on your host trim. I'll guess tonight is a democratic congressman from Brooklyn. New York Representative Hakeem Jeffries is joining. So on tonight's show. Joe Biden may have lost the election. Why George Clooney is even more perfect and Trump is now at war with four Mexico's, but I that's catch up on today's headlines. El Chapo Guzman. The world's most notorious drug kingpin and Mexican baked potato prison may have put an end to his caught hell days. But now he's got a new career. That's even more fabulous. El Chapo is branching out the convicted drug kingpins name will now appear on a new line of clothing created by his wife, Joaquin El Chapo Guzman who wants ran a huge drug cartel in Mexico sign a contract granting the clothing company the right to use his name and signature on its pieces. The line is expected to launch the summer. That's right. I'll chop always starting clothing line. Which makes no sense. I wanna wear El Chapo jeans about as much as I want to smoke. Tommy, hilfiger crack stay in your lane. Also out of all the people why would a clothing brand wanna work with El Chapo, like I've never looked at him and thought style icon. Yeah. Although I do like the idea that I'll chop it was just going to use his drug ring know to bring all the clothes like he's gonna use drug meals as clothing imports as well. This going to be like, okay one, and you take this pair of large khakis and smuggled them in your ass. Okay. Then you drop them off at DJ max b like role won't they be suspicious noise. DJ max man, s khakis other nicest things in the store. Okay. Meanwhile, and entertainment news, George Clooney is stepping into an exciting new role. George Clooney is using his star power to call for a boycott of nine luxury hotels, including the Beverly Hills hotel and hotel BelAir longtime playground for the rich and famous. They're owned by an agency headed by the Sultan of Brunei starting next week. We'll enforce harsh laws including death by stoning as punishment for gay sex adultery in a column for deadline. Clooney rights. Are we really going to help pay for these human rights violations know, this is what I've always liked about George Clooney. He doesn't just have a perfect smile. Chisel? Joe lion hair with the perfect distribution of salt and pepper voice. That makes you feel like the only person in the room. Sorry. What was I talking? Oh, yes. Oh, yes. Human rights violations in Brunei. I'm really proud of George Clooney for bringing tension to the plight of the community in Brunei. And also appreciate that. He's chosen the easiest thing in the world to boycott. Yeah. Don't stay at these five thousand dollar not hotels done George. We're in. We're in. Count me in people. Maybe like Honey, I was gonna book the Beverly Hills hotel, but George Clooney said we should stay with the embassy suites. That's what we're doing Z three moving onto some international news, you, you know, how people will do anything for the Graham, I feel like now people have officially taken a to fall the Auschwitz memorial in. Poland is asking visitors to stop taking photos at the former Nazi death camp. The memorial tweeted four photos of people using the train tracks as a balance being they wrote when you come to Auschwitz museum. Remember you at the site where over one million people were killed respect their memory. There are better places to learn how to walk on a balance beam. This is so disrespectful like shoop. I don't even what is it about cameras that make people forget how to act would become stupid whenever someone holes that thing like someone's holding a baby and they find, and then they see a camera and all of a sudden, they let me dangle this baby over ledge, and I'm not talking about Michael Jackson. I'm talking about rookie. I'm not over that Biki. King of the jungle Dan bus ball. All right. That's it for the headlines. Let's move on main story with just five hundred eighty one days until the presidential election. The democratic field has now grown to sixteen people which is the highest it's ever been just look at how many candidates are running look at all of those faces. But before one lucky democrat gets take on Trump. They I have to take on themselves. So let's catch up on the latest in the democratic race with another edition of World War d. All the candidates in the race the front runner right now is someone who isn't even running yet. The seventy six year old man with the twelve year old teeth Joe Biden now currently the form of ice president is putting out feelers to see where he stands. And apparently the answer is too close to women Joe Biden on defense after a former Nevada State lawmaker said he made her feel uneasy during an interaction in twenty fourteen Lucy Flora's, I made the allegation in an essay for the cut on Friday detailing the encounter with the former vice president at a campaign rally in the Vada as she ran for Lieutenant governor Lawrence does not believe it was sexual, but she calls it inappropriate very unexpectedly and out of nowhere. I feel Joe Biden put his hands on my shoulders, get up very close to me from behind lean in smell, my hair. And then. Plant a slow kiss on the top of my head. Okay. That sounds super creepy. And even though she says it wasn't sexual at all it clearly made her uncomfortable. And it's definitely not. Okay. I mean smelling. Hey is always weird. All right. I don't care who it is. Even if you're in a relationship, if you smell your girlfriend's head, she won't say anything, but a head she'll be like his serial killer. Honestly, swelling as one of the creepiest things you can do. It's on the list of creepy things. It's right off collecting dole pots and sneezing with your eyes open to. Sorry, allergies. This is what is it with America's vice presidents, right? None of them are normal. One guy is smelling women's head the other one refuses to be near or woman. Chaperone isn't that middle? There's no vice middle president. There's nowhere between me too. And Handmaid's tale note someone in between, and it's not just the has nothing apparently Biden also gave her a slow kiss on the top of her head, which again is super creepy as a rule of life, the slow the kiss the creepy. It gets. It's a simple as that. When you greet someone you keep it quick see that my creepy at all. That's it slow kisser when it gets with. See that. Yeah. Super creepy all the slow ones. Creepy all those men out there doing the slow kids. Don't do that for women. You don't know that includes you Amari Hardwick? All right. Busy out here kissing beyond say slowly near you. Don't kiss out say like that the hell you think you are you get in you get out. It's over lingo when you kiss let me tell you, something whatever I see beyond saying, you know, how what what right and I do that at home. Then when I see her I'm like. Zeh business kissing. Joe Biden's story wasn't wind enough. Just today. Another woman came out and said Biden made her feel uncomfortable as well there is now another woman making an accusation that former vice president Joe Biden, inappropriately touched or not sexually not violently. But in her view inappropriately the Hartford current newspaper reports that in two thousand nine fundraiser, Amy lap. Oh said the vice president put his hand on her neck and pulled her into rub noses lamposts tells the current. She was afraid he was going to kiss her. What are you doing rubbing noses with random harassment wasn't bad enough? Now, you have to throw in cultural appropriation. What is he doing? And I'm racing people online saying, oh, it's just a knows. What's the big deal? First of all, it's an invasion of personal space. Okay. And also medically speaking the nose is the penis of the face. All right. It totally is it sticks out in wit ways. This stuff inside the gets shot into a tissue. When you're when you're young your mum can touch it. But when you get older that's super with don't touch it. Don't touch touching my whole life. Yeah. But now it's weird. It's weird. Let me put it this way. If rubbing noses was just Biden being cute and being homeless grandpa. How come you've never seen him? Do it with men how Biden spent eight years hanging out with Barack Obama and not once was he like congrats on passing Obama Care. So now because of sniff kiss gates Biden's campaign might be over before it even starts and people are freaking out because if he doesn't run the Democrats would only have sixteen candidates to choose from and only six of them would be white guys. An absolute disaster. But Biden isn't ready to give up my friend snow. He's gently grabbing the scandal by the shoulders, and he's doing damage control Biden issued a statement saying in my many years on the campaign trail and in public life. I have offered countless handshakes hugs expressions of affection support and comfort and not once never did. I believe I acted inappropriately. If it is suggested I did. So I will listen respectfully, but it was never my intention. You know, what I got to say that seems like a nice apology. Because basically what Biden saying look I didn't mean to make these women on comfortable, but I'm willing to listen, I'm going to listen real close. The need him, Dan. Nice and close maybe just get a little sniffer bed. Get all right. Bye. The truth is nobody was really surprised by these stories because unfortunately, Biden has been doing this kind of thing out in the open for his entire two hundred year political career questions have been raised in the past about Biden's behavior around women. He was dubbed America's creepy uncle and a walking HR violation. Hundred. Cared about. One vice president Joe Biden ended up with a woman from a biker group on his lap. As two biker watched Biden reportedly told her votes, I know who runs the show. Checkup looks on those guys faces. Look at this space over here, you see that if you can make a biker gang uncomfortable. You cross the line, my friend. What according to buy them being hands on is. What makes him a good politician? In fact, here's what he was saying just a couple of weeks ago from TAC toe politician, I always have been that's what gets me in trouble as well. But I think I could feel and taste. What's going on tastes? Taste with tasting. Now too. Who writes, this guy speeches Hannibal lector? I've been old across this great country. And let me tell you this. No one more delicious than Iowans. Tastes. Now, what's made the story? Interesting is that while some women are speaking out against Joe Biden's, unwelcome nose jobs. There are other women who say that for them Biden's affection was as innocent as he intended by also getting support from Stephanie Carter wife of former Obama Defense Secretary ash Carter, she writes this show to rub from Biden at her husband's twenty fifteen swearing in. That some critics have jumped on was simply a show of support between close friends not inappropriate touching. Now. You see that's kind of surprising because everyone saw this photo of Joe Biden going on a Skop safari, and they assumed, but he had made this woman extremely uncomfortable. But it turns out she thinks there was nothing wrong with it. He was just a friend comforting her on a stressful day while also checking her for lice. It's clear that Joe Biden needs to be more thoughtful going forward about which women are willing participants in his follicle diving, and which are not and for all the women out there who aren't on board. And they're worried about Joe Biden in their world. Luckily here at the daily show, we invented a new products to help keep creepy by no way. I was so excited to attend a fundraiser for my favorite charity. But then I found out Joe Biden was going to be there. What if he tried to smell my hair, I was about to cancel? But then my friend told me about getaway for my head and shoulders get away from my head and shoulders, coats, your follicles, and a moisturizing bland, rotten eggs that fish and water from guy theories toiler in a formula. That's clinically proven to repel. Former vice president and anyone else that attend foot radius. So you can look good smell bad. Vice president barely even shook my hand. Thanks get away from my head and shoulders. Liberal in close talking co worker. Everybody. We'll be right back.

It's Trump's greatest challenge since that six piece, jigsaw puzzle. You see he swallowed two of the pieces. So he never stood a chance. Trump has made the southern border his mission. And he said he's gonna fix the border. But ironically, his policies have only exacerbates the backlog there and this past weekend. It may have reached its worst point yet crisis at the border customs and border protection. Officials say they are overwhelmed and over capacity the immigration system is past the breaking point because of a surge of families from Central America asking for asylum last month, more than seventy five thousand people were apprehended the highest in over a decade Tomlin security secretary Kirsten Nielsen called the surge of migrant arrivals, a dire situation and said the agency is facing a system wide meltdown. They all Paso sector saw such a spike in migrants that last week officials here say they were forced to how some of them under this border bridge. They've now been moved to another facility. Wow. There was so many migrants that they have to be kept under a bridge that has messed up because. No place worse than under a bridge. Right. Yeah. Bridges under part makes everything SATA. Okay. Birthday party fun, but they policy under a bridge sat marriage proposal romantic marriage proposal under a bridge the opening of law and order SVU. Now, part of the reason that there are so many migrants coming up is that they home countries plagued by violence and people don't have money. And when Trump heard this he decided to help them out by getting rid of all their money problems once and for all he also announced yesterday and the State Department confirmed that we will be cutting payments aid payments to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras over the fact that those countries are have been unable to contain the flood of migrants heading through Mexico to our southern border. All right now, first of all the Fox News rarely labeled Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala as three Mexican countries. That's that's what it says there. Right. Yeah. That must have been terrifying. For people who watch Fox News like Hani, Mexico's are multiply locked doors. Here's the thing with cutting funding from own administration has said that without aid to these countries the migrant problem could become even worse for America. It's like when when my apartment had a mouse problem, I thought I could fix it by bringing in a bunch of stray cats, right? But then I had a cat problem. Tried to get a bunch of coyotes long story short. Now, I run a giraffe fighting ring. It doesn't work for the people who are worried that Trump is only going to increase the number of migrants story. The presence ready has a solution for that. He's going to slap a close sign at the bottom of America. President Trump threatening to shut down the border as early as this week. If he doesn't get what he wants. We have right now two Vig caravans coming up from Guatemala, massive caravans. Now, are they gonna stop? And if they don't stop which closing the border, they'll close we'll we'll keep a close for a long time. I'm not playing games. Why does Trump's on like a drunk guy? Who's about a fight Mexico and a parking lots? Don't try me Mexico. I'm not playing games one. You wanna try me? Try. Also, if you wondering where Trump got the idea to close the southern border. It's probably something he took from his personal life is like last month, but I knew shutdown her southern border and it worked folks. Now, I watched both my hands before I eat. Nine case you wondering shutting down the US Mexico border wouldn't just hurt the home raise down south. No, they would also be more painful consequences. He and the US because it communists, have warned that closed border could affect five million American jobs and over six hundred billion dollars in trade. And if you think about a shutdown one affect you because you don't live or work around the border. Well, you might wanna think again, the US listen to this would run out of cod in three weeks. If President Trump shuts down the border with Mexico. Did you hear that? That's the sound of yoga moms all over America. Freaking out right now. Where will I get my healthy? So once again, Donald Trump has shown there's no problem. He can't make twice as bad because you realize if white people get ever caught in America, they're gonna stop fleeing to Mexico, and now there's going to be a crisis on both sides of the border. We'll be right back. My guest tonight represents pots of Brooklyn and queens in the house of representatives as chair of the democratic caucus. He is the fifth highest ranking democrat in the house. Please welcome congressman Hakeem Jeffries. Welcome to the show right to be here. So cool down the road. You just like pop up. This is nice. Yeah. Let's talk about what the Democrats will dealing with these days. The mother reports that came out attorney general bosses that proves no collusion. But the Democrats are saying you want to see the full reports. Do you believe that something else in the report that that will further suspicions about Trump? Or is it just about being open with the public? Why think first and foremost transparency is important in terms of openness as relates to our government four hundred and twenty members of the house of representatives voted to release the full report zero voted against it. What in eighty percent of the American people have said, we should see report the president himself has said we should see the report so transparency in democracy is critical. Right. And it's not clear to me what the president is hiding in terms of the failure to release it today. We'll see what happens on April. Second in terms of what the attorney general does. Right. Well, I guess the argument from China general side has been you know, we have to reject the the. Report because there are certain, you know, sensitive pieces of information that should not be out. And they worried about people leaking that information, do you think there's validity of those claims? Well, that's a reasonable statement. But we'll see how far it goes. Right ended day. If there is grand jury material there is a basis in law to withhold some of it. But there's also a rule that says if there is substantial public interests, the presumption of secrecy can be overcome a while release the grand jury material seventeen different intelligence agencies concluded that Russia attack, our democracy and interfered with our election in order to artificially try and play Donald Trump at sixteen hundred Pennsylvania Avenue, right? Seems to me that that's a compelling government interest to figure out what happened why did it happen? And how do we prevent it from happening again? Let me ask you this to to that point where the Democrats on now versus where you're trying to go. There's been polling that has come out suggests that most Americans do not care about Donald Trump and the Russians most Americans care about paying off student loans. Most Americans care about medical bills about healthcare. Most Americans care about safety in the homes is the messaging of the Democrats going into twenty twenty going to be just Trump and Russia, or is there is their plan of what to do if you assume office or we're gonna continue to focus on are for the people agenda when we were communicating with the American people in advance of the midterm elections. We didn't talk about Russia. We didn't talk about impeachment. We didn't talk about collusion or obstruction of Justice. We talked about lowering health care costs protecting people with preexisting conditions strengthened in the Affordable Care wreck and acting a real infrastructure. A plan and cleaning up corruption in the aero of citizens United. So we can get unregulated money out of politics and in the era of voter suppression. Once and for all that's the conversation that we had with the American people. And so now that we're in the majority that's what we're going to focus on, but we are a separate and Coequal branch of government. We don't work for Donald Trump. We work for the American people. And so we do have a constitutional responsibility to serve as a check and balance on out of control executive brands. Now, we will try to find common ground with the Trump administration to get things done on behalf of the American people house. Democrats will never bend the knee to Donald J Trump the first of his name because this is a democracy. It's not a monarchy. Like that was. As Donald J Trump, the the first of his name sounds like a game of thrones. Like, that's pretty cool. He's probably gonna take the first of my name. It's interesting that you say we will work together with Trump many would feel that that is just rhetoric, but you yourself personally have been working with the Trump administration, Jared Kushner, specifically on criminal Justice reform now many people have felt like Kushner and his role in the administration is one that's murky at best. But from your experience, it seems like there's a genuine intent to work on changing the way America treats people who have been incarcerated that's right in politics. Doesn't make strange bedfellows. And we have a mass incarceration problem in the United States of America win failed war on drugs. I started in nineteen seventy one there were less than three hundred and fifty thousand people incarcerated America today. We have two point two million this proportionately black and Latino proximity half non violent drug offenders, as you know, Trevor win concentrate more people in the United States of America than any other. Country in the world rights. It's a stain on our democratic society. And so we concluded working with Kushner who expressed an authentic interest in this issue last year that Democrats Republicans should work together to strike a blow against mass incarceration. Right. And we were able to negotiate the first step act to help currently incarcerated individuals successfully transition back into society, make sure they had the skills the training the education, the substance abuse treatment, the mental health counseling to successfully become productive citizens reduce recidivism save taxpayer dollars. And we also rolled back some of the draconian failed war on drugs. Sentencing. Schemes right have devastated communities, and so it was the first step, but it was a meaningful step. It was a coalition of the unusual suspects the left, the right, Democrats and Republicans progressives and conservatives the ACO you and the coke brothers and on December twenty first. Of last year. Donald Trump signed the Bill into law. That's actually impressive. I'm gonna like the. The big question. Some people may have is you have found a way to work with the Trump administration in further criminal Justice reform. The question is will the Democrats be able to work with themselves in we've seen recently cracks in in the Pasi factions formed far left versus Moore center-leaning Democrats Akhazia Cortez versus Moore stablishment leaders Bernie Sanders right now stepping away from most of the parts, you know, people saying we want to change the Affordable Care Act. We want to improve coverage. We want to expand coverage. You want to protect people who have pre existing conditions Bernie saying, no that's not enough. I want Medicare for all is they're going to be a consensus in the Democratic Party. Or do you see yourselves basically eating each other alive before you get to go up against Trump? Well, there are two hundred and thirty nine members of the House Democratic. Talk is two hundred and thirty five ODI members. And so what we're going to try to do is focus on what unites us, and we know that there's a principle that unites us as Democrats, and that is that America is the wealthiest country in the history of the world. And in that context, we believe that every single American should have access to high quality affordable health care period. Full. Stop healthcare is not a privilege. It's a right. That's foundation. And so we want to begin by marching toward universal access to coverage. Right. We think the first thing we can do. And we know there are two hundred and thirty five votes to do. It is to drive down the high cost of lifesaving prescription drugs because no one in America should ever have to choose between putting food on the table clothing on their back paying the rent or getting access to the medicine that they deserve rights. It's gonna be a long journey seem you're focused in the game. You ready to do it? I have one question before. I let you go. It seems like a lot of the more high profile Democrats right now coming from a few specific places in and around New York, it seems like the boroughs representing do you think there's something about the boroughs? That's giving. You guys edgy. You know, it's yourself as Cortez. We've seen is that something we don't know. We'll have have love boogie down Bronx. But we keep it real in Brooklyn as well.

The Handmaid's Tale on HULU: Season 3/Ep4!

"Oh, it's like the, it's a serial like. Welcome to mayday podcast not about Syria, but it could be because now we've got a plan we're open to it a love, sir. Learning. Like I was thinking about this. Like it's really hard to eat the actual serving size that is no one. No, not a singer Winston serving. It's like a half Cup or something Lippi ridiculous on the planet. Does that all people that loves you wanna stay healthier desperately in the aisle looking for that one one Cup serving you like, all right? Even then one Cup. It's all bath. It's bad for you. It's delicious hickory. It's all that for you most of its bed. None of it is satisfying more than. More than anyway. They have cereal Gilead, what he think. Oh man. No, no. The, the crops to a lot of processed. Yeah. Grow in your backyard very natural, except for their dry-cleaning as we discovered, I would raise see Gilead like farms. Yeah. Are they run by Ikano people? And what I do want to grow out of this, this resolves, but they all have close high cholesterol, apparently voter red meat all the voter in the. And you so welcome back. This is episode four week to. We're just gonna go by episode numbers to not confuse everyone do it to policy is too few people because somebody called me out on this because it was a typo in my did not put into description of the podcast that we were covering all three episodes. So. Changed it right away. When I was made aware of it, but that is that's only clerical error. Whoops, I apologize. So. How are we doing this week? How's the week, Ben? How's everybody doing life is good, solid certainty on our here, by the way? Yep. Hi pretty good. Yeah. No. I watched this episode two nights ago, and I will say that I had managed not to openly weep yet the season, but it did happen last night before whenever I heard this one's a tearjerker and I say, I heard this one's a two Jerker because I didn't get dodge it this week. So this week, I'm gonna play the friend that accident that got too busy watch the show. So you guys are gonna tell me, I'm going to be like Erma gir-. I can't believe that happened. So that's how we're going to roll with us. And we also as we know that has been really serious. Yeah. Right. No, the Handmaid's tale detox was on point four real, like the I think you guys don't even understand that never would have happened. Clearly, don't like I would like accidentally hurt myself trying to watch this last year. Like stayed up til like someone godly. On your phone while you're driving or something terrible like that. Correct. Now, do not do that. As I like to say about a lot of things. It's not that serious. It's going to be okay. Nobody's gonna die. Plus I got this. I say this all time were human show. We have we have faults. Okay. Dress me, a lot of people. Tell me about them on Facebook. Favorite thing. I love it because I love the people like so passionate about the show. They're like, how did you forget this? I'm going to be like, because I'm not a robot but it's all good. I take it all in stride. Because I get it because I'm like that with some things usually throw it out on Facebook because I know people have things to do, but yeah, I didn't get to watch the show this week. I read some synopses to get the lowdown. So I heard it was a fantastic, so NICKY watched it. I didn't watch it which is like the opposite life. Right. For bizarre over wrapping my head around. So a couple of announcements you've probably heard this is the beginning the podcast because there's an ad running for that. I recorded we moved our podcast hosting to anchor, which is awesome because free, which I told you at the beginning of this, but also because there's lots of awesome, cool things that we're going to get to do that. We couldn't do our other places so look forward to that. If you wanna go check out the anchor app, it will give you some extra features that we haven't quite started using it, but we will down the line. Like if you have a apple music account or a spa. Spotify premium account. We you'll get to hear music because they let you allow allow you to use music samples from those places. And so we're going to be looking into that 'cause I don't know if anybody knows this are not we like music. I like. So. Give me your overall, the big picture opinion on this episode. Baptisms are creepy than usual Gilead. Bright. A little strange to begin with. But I find them downright creepy and Gilead. And I've still waiting for something horrendous to happen. Yeah. It was a bit more emotional like I said earlier than some of the other ones have been so that felt familiar Nikki said it's turned down. We're talking to waiting for something terrible to happen, because everyone's got PTSD two seasons of like hander, I are getting every time somebody main character walks into a room and I don't know who else is there. I'm like, oh, God, I can compare it to it'd be watched homeland. We're watch homeland tear show like Sarah will relate to the, the first three seasons. Four seasons. There were several scenes, I think in every season where either they would be driving away from something, and it would blow up behind them, or they would get to intersection and someone will get plowed by a car. So now after those seasons where they didn't necessarily do it every time they drive through an intersection, you're like. Driving away from something, and there's vehicles behind them like. And then. Do. Oh, everybody's arrived. So I get I get that. So one of the new features that we have on his podcast, that anchor provides is you can leave us in message you could do this before because I had to Google voice line. But now you can just leave it in app, and there's a link that I'm gonna put up on the on the Facebook page so that you can do that. And I can just get it all in one place in anchor website, which in my life allies. So there's also a support the show link which is a new an interesting thing that I don't know of going to work or not maybe people like us enough to send us the money. I've no idea if you want to go for green library. Yeah, we're big fans. We're big fans of money. And if you're into that thing and you like us, and you want to send us some cash, the number to put a link up there and says, hey, you can tip us like per baristas. It's all goods cook, here, he stays cute face right, there say, this is it we're yeah. It's a bit weird. But again, green light. We're good. We're good. Leered. Good. So again, I forget every season third season doing this. But I continually amazed by the fact that people listen to the show will always be like when I see the numbers because I checked the thing, and I'm like, really actually enjoying it and Facebook was like people were all about. They were super excited that we were back and, and most the most the most exciting thing is that does narwhal thing has legs now. No talking to a couple of friends of mine that listen to the show and they were like one of them said, I didn't know they were really there. Thank you. I can't believe somebody thought they were real. Full spend your I've been thinking about that a lot, too, but not alone. While we're on the topic. I'll go ahead and say because I said last week, the first person to post a live narwhal picture on our feed was going to win a copy of the Handmaid's tale graphic novel. So congratulations, congratulations to Nicole arouse go now there was some controversy because I think Nicole tried to post one and she thought it didn't post, but Tian and I know that Facebook doesn't always do the thing that says it's going to do or it doesn't look like it is, but it really did. So it did. So you won the coal, not the other person who thought she won. She didn't win take it up with me. Get some valiant effort other, yes. And also, thank you for time, stamping Facebook that we can actually see what time people tracer Nicole really listened to the podcast, or just went off the fact that I said, hey, there's a great, nor wall story at the end of this. I don't really know. It was a quick listen, but I have no proof of the other direction. So Nicole, you're getting a copy of the Handmaid's tale. Not going to coll-, who is the other person. I feel like this get like extra encouragement to try next time we have everybody. Terrible person. I just so. There's some great things I don't Facebook and like for real, there were so many narwhal pictures, and so many people saying, I had to convince my, my husband that they were real, I didn't think they were real either. Or somebody sent me this one that's like shows a picture of our wall. And it's basically a unicorn in like a seal suit with horns sticking out. I write about in many. In many loss since last week, when we had this conversation, I read about them, and mental floss. And apparently they used to be hunted like the eighteenth century for their tusks, which would be cut off and presented to royalty as unicorn horns. Interesting. Horns, and none of them are in captivity, because every time people capture them and try to study them they die every through it. So none are in captivity anywhere. Due NAR wolf. In fact, every week somebody put that one there is no known in captive that was one. I got today. That is incredible thing. Yeah. I'll send you the mental plus narwhal pictures everywhere, if you go to our Facebook page, nor walls there and creature inspired something inspired, some woman to go by naral book for children. So that's awesome. See good things. Come for my ignorance. We're doing God's work or somebody's work on. Okay twitter. So I said, I was out on Twitter wasn't coming back. I came back a little because I had to because I know there's people there they got followers. So I had at least, hey, we gotta show where I'm going to tell you. I'm not gonna talk to you anymore. And then I talked to him a little bit. Official giving out my favorite tweet award. And this is ever. I don't know somebody's gonna try real hard authentically top this because I'm telling you what it is right now. Now, just people are just gonna know. They can. That's why I'm saying it's going to be really hard to like truly top this. So yeah, yeah, this is one of the first things I read, I think might have been the first tweet. I read when I hadn't been on Twitter in Cincinnati member. Okay. This is from rogue pampered. Chef is this museum? It says at hand my podcast. Do you know a podcast that a fan of the show can listen to yours is not that? I laugh out loud out loud. It was a real LL. Not even one of the ones that you sit in your freshman you like reading mean tweets. Yes. Like this. Your reading Po-shu show, the face the face people love us, except some people on Facebook that don't love it. They love when we miss little things some of them. But most of them are like, no, there has been a whole thing about people looking for podcasts, that are not ours for various reasons. I didn't get any of those this week nothing. But love week once all go downhill from here, but fair enough. So thank you wrote, pampered chef and I did replied, literally said LL, maybe my favorite tweet ever. And then I told her she could go to getting and not immediately. I really don't cash you could go listen to yes. Right. Yes. A real one.

You guys grocers based I'm so happy. I'm like beating the bane. Okay. Somebody else on Twitter Brinda Atkin back who is a fellow Saint Louis, which is always cool because, you never know, feel like we're talking this pit were no one listens to us even over here. But that's not true. Now that's that's the rest of the state. Choose truth separate Kansas City. It's like a black hole. It's like it's like Chicago between, like Edwardsville in Chicago. I guess Springfield. We count college towns. Yeah. Verna comeback said, hey, had hamming podcast found you guys just recently after my previous episode recap out discontinued somebody discontinued. Although there's still like six I start I still hurting for no, no and may sell. Somebody will fill that hole. She says a non coastal podcast, which is still a thing. I don't think about very much. But apparently, one of one of the few like aren't on a coast. So I feel like the ones that pay money. Yes. Actually happen goes. And she says even better, there, Missouri, Illinois. People assuming this means you all live STL waves from south city. So. Yes, I lived there, just a few years ago, we're currently near near Katie sushi is a what's her name? Kate Shays, welcome back to the podcast. And so questioned last week, whether 'cause I apparently bring farted on the whole part, Nick June's hand or June. Took Nixon, and then went back in the room that blinked my head. She said that really did happen. And she's she also said, why do they have a lock down their door? She's a hand. But now they are command Lawrence how, so I kind of just sorry commander Joey Lawrence. Also, lots of people were on the joy Lauren que. Did anybody notice it besides with before us? So the other podcasting, few and far between. So one of the host of the other podcasts that are recommended to snarky pampered chef over there. She actually posted it before I posted it on our. Talking about joy. So. And then somebody asked me if I when I thought of him, did, I think of young, Joey Lawrence, like from gimme break. No Carter school. Oh, Gimmie break was a great show. No car. He was a little kid Joey, and then or joy or older older. Join Joey and Melissa Joan Hart headed show together on the Disney channel because anything to do was it called Joey is called Melissa, and Joey, or Jillian Melissa. I don't know. Somebody member someone will, yeah. Yeah, that was like older. Joey. No, I think of blossom Joey. Joe? That's really the only joy. I do believe the Joe Lawrence surgery. He had. Yeah. Oh, did it go? All right. Well, that's how we're going to decide or prize winner for this week. I don't have a price yet but next week to wait the first person. I know. No, no. Keep it fair this week because I don't anymore time controversies all you gotta do this post your favorite picture of joy Lawrence. If you can find proof the joy Lawrence had plastic surgery before. And after picture that's bonus. But I'm gonna take all the people that decide they want to do this and next week will pick one at random. So throw joy Lawrence photo up on our feet this week. And we'll do we'll see we're gonna win. I have an idea. We have several things in the price that over there. We got some give you some more. I have lots of stuff. I have some more graphic novels. I have we have stickers, which we need to send people super excited about her stickers Tian of stem. We have some fat on box that was leftover from the fall. That was pretty awesome.

Really interested in that bit fun bucks understand. Yeah. I understand shocker. I'm still gonna try to wiggle my way into some of them goods. It's good stuff, so shit behind Georgia. We love them. Yeah. So the social media was just blowing up this week. I was really, it's always fun. When we throw crazy crap, like, hey, posted naral and. See what happened. Somebody did post something coach I thought about while I was watching, but we never got a chance to talk about it. Which was I don't remember name because it's not core. Whoever the other hand, may or the other Martha in Lawrence's house. Guess she was Knicks little thing on the side when he was in jesu- bells at one time in the kitchen where they were talking to recap. But then I was like, no, I think she just looks kinda similar now. That's for sure familiar to that's her. That's her. Yeah. I put second why she was so cavalier, even at Jessica commanders everywhere. Right. Yeah. Like did you notice I did? But I've got some who is Lawrence Lynn Jessop hell. All right. Here's the here's the person called cath Fisher. She said, guys, you really Mr. important scene when Lawrence orders June to remove a book from the shelf. Did you notice all the other books on the shelf around it? They're all him. I did not know that when she was doing it, but I assume that later when she said that he wrote them, I was like, oh, I thought that maybe she just knew, then I was too lazy to rewind and this apparently when she took Darwin off the show all the rest of the books around that his. So that was. Lots of people confirming that the Canadians indeed are that nice would clap for the handmade. Oh my goodness. Really? Yes. And also I love you. They also said that we are welcome whenever we again. Yeah, somebody. The dual citizenship. Please our children. Yeah. Family. It's like it's like vaccine for HR household. Great and don't leave at crystal. I'm dead serious here. It's probably gonna need Jillian Doty asked Wilkerson will be back and, yes, I can confirm Krista will be back life and timing, crystal is busy lady, who does lots of things in both have eighty so you know, things happen. And so she should be back next week. Getting caught up on all the shows, she shall return also crystal to continue stumping real Handmaid's of Detroit, which someday will be. I don't know if it'll be maybe a funnier die. It'd be a good one. So last night. Nikki is a big John Oliver fan on anybody else's seen this did you watch it? Watch it. Okay. So this week, he did a big thing on eagle rights amendment, which is pretty outstanding. And they did this whole thing on Phyllis schlafly about why didn't get past initially when is trying to get passed in the seventies. And then when the whole thing about all the states. Who haven't actually pass it on their own? There's like thirteen. Did. They finally ratified it. There you go. Illinois's been doing some good thing. I know that I'm not that far away. Lua Canada for a short time, Illinois. He's been doing good stuff. I'm proud of I was thinking, they don't get to hear that much. I'm sure they're I'm sure they're your in-laws. I've seen their gigantic mobile command center. Families have a. To set up. I think that's where we're going. I don't know if I can live in those close quarters with you guys, but better than whatever that option is going to be great. I nobody nobody else back. Check you mid convert. Justin definitely exe- factor becomes all of the time. I m d be on speed though. I'm the only happening. It's like on a top five list of apps that you need that settles more arguments for you. Does that? I agree. And I use it a lot for the same reason. Right. You're sitting in the Senate already on TV or Sarah walls, and then and then trust your partner to correct herself if she needs to later, see sir, thank you. You don't need me because I will tech myself later feel bad and apologize. Checking the fact check yourself. I guess so I think any researcher does that? So anyway, John. Oliver, one big thing, of course. Missouri native Phyllis schlafly, and so I know all about schlafly. And if you've never if you if you're looking for good time, and you wanna see someone who's trying to set the female parliament movement back, not she's dead. But was trying to set it back, hardcore go, Google yourself Phyllis schlafly, I know her either onus, right granddaughter or I can't remember if the person whom I know if she was her grandmother or her grandmother sister by. She is a wonderful person that I know families not bonkers, right? Really, just Phillips. Fantastic. Charges near are great. And they also made a point of saying, we don't sign on for their safety, not go. Sign understand. But here's a fun that I know is amazing. Here's a fun fact. Now did some research today, just verify whether this was a connection or not. But I don't think it is because there's no verified fact that she was in fact, like a direct inspiration for Serena joy. Although looking for someone that writing brain lanes, especially like in the age. They are in the book for sure. But her husband's name is Fred? I noticed what? Oh, yeah. I turned around. Really a self-imposed of friend. Yeah. Real if you if anybody wants to watch some ill, schlafly clips, Ling, it's hard to not religion, Raina joy. It's just so Serena. Yeah. In like an old lady kind of way where like you, you feel like she's gonna be sweet any moment. But, like no, she doubles now. She is that was the thing is hard gorlic. She would say stuff like she would come out and should go. I want to thank my husband Fred for letting me be here tonight, usually I only say that because the women libber get really mad when I say things like that. So she was like totally, like poke the bear all this stuff. And I did read a thing today ironically, where she was gonna run for president. But then she has six children. And so all the people that are like on her side of the cause, relax with your, how's that work with all the things you say that you're going to do, so then she couldn't said face emoji, really so. Yeah, it was crazy. So definitely check that out is a great as most John. Oliver things aren't as fantastically produced researched in great education. But yeah, no direct connection from but that whole time line fits with when she was writing that book. And when it came out. All right. So once again, thank you to all our social media people and all just keeping our welcome next week on joy Lawrence photo. So whatever your favorite joy Lawrence's, and maybe he hasn't had worked on. Maybe he's just super like manicured now, I think I don't I know he's super tan last time. I saw him pretend that doesn't into age. Well, there's one particular in particular over tanning, there's one in particular Joey Lawrence that I have in my head that if someone posted I'll be very happy. I'm not going to say what it is the somebody actually finds it. It's, it's another Joey Lawrence fun, like you at least need to write it down. He just looked very, I think, in the builder years like very plucked to shiny and. Buff to buff brought out. All right. So let's talk about this episode. I'm told that we start with the baptisms of all the children and that the baptisms our creepy, tell me about this. Tell me about this opens up apt his. Yeah. Which is which I think the. No, man. Just they make everything creepy. I do like everybody is filing in according to their lake status. India. Great. And you see, as their filing in Lydia is, of course, at the door standing by the, the is, who are patting down, all of the Handmaid's, they go in creepy, and she comments to Janine and. What's the mean black inmates name of Matthew of Matthew and June that they get seats of honor? And so, you know, of course, in for oh, they must all of them. Have had children them. So of Matthews had children are really seems like you think she's going to have an end with Matthew like, oh, maybe she is able to be turned. Maybe she will be. Yeah. Matthew says she had three. And I mind blowing that you could have three and still be like still a handmade somewhere Gilead must be fertile Myrtle. She's pretty young young looking. Probably say interest you on. Does she looked a little younger but I mean, I think they're going to keep going till you can't go. That's terrible. You know, for like better way, putting it. That's kind of how they see it. So, yeah, it was it was so weird. It was like they were walking into like this very honored thing. But like it's not for them, it's for the, it's for the wives and the command rose, it's just one, it's a mass thing, which is like, you know, those mass wedding that they had yet, less vary like the mass wedding. Yeah. Didn't have that church basement feel. No. But, like, yeah. Of Mattie, was super distinct throughout this entire episode. But when you learn about the fact that she's had three children. You're like ooh. So maybe, maybe there's more to her, maybe exteriors, just for show. Right. Like maybe we can get some more out of her. Occur together. Right. Totally voice over at the time is June out how she's looking for allies or something. Yeah. So that's the tone is super creepy super formal super weird like mass weddings mass baptisms n supercrew weird like the birthing scene from the second now ethics creepy. It's the mass wedding. So, like it's just hyper, hyper formal and Serena is noticeably missing lake. They, they don't shove down in the pew like Fred just hasn't nobody next to him. And then the next couple is further away. Very, very noticeable. And she gets a, you know, was that directly when being ostracized yes alike. The minister whomever is like praying for all of the babies and making everybody pray for the baby's a call and response style. It's really weird. And at the end of it, he's like, and we must pray for those who are who have been taken from Gilead, clearly referencing the baby, the baby. So it was it was very weird port. I, I wanna say poor Fred, but that's not really how I feel but you know what I mean like it was just there like. Yep. It will into that happen to us and other weird thing that happened during that scene. Is you here, again in dunes inter monologue? She's talking about how she feels about Fred. She looks up at fray, she's right? I can't say that a hate him. I don't I should hate how should hate him, but I also can't say that I love him and. The basically. Yeah, it was on the way she described what she felt for I was thinking about that this week. And I feel like they're almost pretending like they didn't have seen that the end of last season, where they beat the crap out of each other for five minutes like that didn't happen. I mean, like in their position of how they are in the roles that they are in that doesn't seem like a thing that you all of a sudden, like I recall like your two guys like that's how guys are angry fight. We move on playing video games in ten minutes. But I don't feel like that's the kind of relationship that like to go for Mike slap in the crap out of each other like. They aren't any fine with each other. Again with. To even the tone last week when they were talking in the. Yeah. When they were talking. Like seems a little a little too familiar, not familiar. It was a little too empathetic to friendly, and like to, like, hey, we just beat the crap of each other, and you my, my kid outta here to, to Canada, like all of a sudden, you're like stoke flirting with her. Like I know you're dumb like I get it like you stupid. We get it. But bad any doesn't seem to retain, like. Appropriate behavior levels anywhere like it's not just with June. Like he, he is bad at judging the room. Before speaking. He can't read a room. It's not just what you, but it is especially creepy with June. Or so give me a rundown. Lydia the I heard one she's in a rascal for. For everybody walking to the church arrests. Joke about. Hello. It was it was the hand me that we can't have remember her. Yeah. Of name, she's the one who spoken the grocery store across the cans. I know real. I remember character feel bad. She's awesome. So rundown here, what I have a Janine has visit with aunt Lydia where they try when she tries to be super positive Janine, and aunt, his not having any of it will not receptive to, like, right before that Janine and Lydia continue their weird parent child thing. Thing where she's like, what are you into this Athar reception? Yeah. At the. The Putnam house right after the ceremony. So, like not everybody from the ceremony. Is there obviously a lot of people that was all, but it was like, you know, everybody, you know. So we got our first lady put them citing weird. They hand mates were there to begin with. We ever I Lydia. Little man. Ross over commander, button them look. So ridiculously happy walk into that baptism like he was grinning, you would think he just got his other arm back, so effing happy, it looks so out of place. I had the wives and other commanders all looked happy. But like he looked like he was on. We'll maybe like he's ascended now that Fred is once again. Right. Maybe they're like, maybe he's like canned right? Great. You know, he will. Okay. So run the scene down from because I know from this says it's basically Janine comes in. They have the baby their engineering wants to hold the baby walks in, and it sounds like a bad idea. Interestingly, the episode episode is organized, where chopped up with a bunch of flashback. Right. So, yeah. So window watch the scene like all the way through without all the, the, you know, flashbacks and all the other stuff happening then. Yeah. Like they walk in ladies like you'd be good girl or whatever that we're thinking she's like, yeah. Going to be a good girl, and you're like. You know, there have always been kind of odd to us. And then she walks in women Selena comes. And she makes an appearance, and she in June chat for a bit about, you know. Their butts now. Yeah, they're old friends from what I whenever they, they meet up the pool. So there's an indoor pool like in a in a sunroom, and it's super from what I hear it's pretty and completely deserted and says Serena's in there you know having a smoke as she does. And whatever the she now. Great junior, having a who gives a fuck on. No, it's fun. And. Yeah. And then June walks in and starts having some real talk like kind of gently convincing. Serena to get back with the cause you can do more. You could start pulling streaming. Yeah. Yeah. Recruitment campaign because she had just talked to Fred and kind of softened up. Fred to the idea of letting Serena have a little more control at home. For real. All the time. Lost without her and June picks up on that immediately and starts capitalizing on it because she's smart. And so then she comes to serene all empowered, and she's like, well, you have power, it's only two point. She's like move. The point. Get it. They had some good good lines in that scene. She did. And it was a cool scene. It was a wear the dress, do the job or something like that. Pull the string back in the main, I don't, I don't even know what to call that room. The rich like sitting room. Enormous. Happened. It's off the phone giant house. It is Norman. Well, they're clearly taste. They clearly squatted in someone else's house. It was actually really great did well. House hunters did well for them. So there. So Serena is back in their June. It's kind of hanging out outside because the Handmaid's aren't allowed in that room where the proper people are, and this is serene alike easing back into speaking to people again using her way back into society. Right. And then all of a sudden out of the blue to hear crazy wandering into the room, looking so happy and hopeful, and, like, slowly entering insulate not everybody notices right away. But you can see the room notice because it gets real quiet when you can see June to because. Yeah, you join us right outside the room and tries to stop her. But then she gets away and June doesn't like Russian they're like, oh, God. Oh, god. From the outside lately. He'll be okay. Yeah. Jim can barely contain herself. Neither can anybody. I mean I know I know. I just like held my breath, Knossos, this, the first moment where you're like, oh, no. Yes. Something like a new something bad was going to happen. Yes. And it does it does. It's not as bad as expected aim. Because when she first walks up to lady Putnam and. Like what is happening? And it's like in baby a little closer and the men are like slightly stepping forward like where my the man. I don't I don't know what they think they're going to do in that situation. That's what we, we beat our chests. And, and then she just says, can I hold the can I hold her. Just I just wanna hold her. And are you see lady putting them on to hate babies everywhere, lets her? Yeah, she's getting crazy sweet moment, where should, let's hold the baby. So this is where like this is classic Bruce Miller, but he wrote this. This is classic bursar is building. Yep. He's making feel good making feel good. All we've had this week moment, Janine told in the baby and you know, you know, something about that, that even right before that she thanked June when June showed up. She's like, thank you perceive. Never forget what you did on never forget. We didn't you like who is this Leon say what she's like supernatural column that they have got some good prescriptions since last time, we saw it is nice and the manner. Putnam happy. So we're, we're to believe that they actually. Had like a genuine like little turn moment there in the hospital where they had a. You know. Fanie. But at least softened up lady putting them late. Could this have been part of last season? When, you know, the, the ladies are at her house, like for the luncheon or whatever they're doing. I don't remember and some of them, it turns out, have anti Gilead tendencies. And like we just learn about it, right. Then, like is this movie part of that has she been like swayed by she when when Serena did her deal last season? She kinda definitely backed off after Serena went rogue and did the whole reading thing, right? But maybe maybe that like inspired her like we can like behind, I think she was she's on just wasn't ready. I just wasn't ready to go full reading yet. She wasn't ready to lose. That's for sure much like June likes to go a little rogue sometimes do little things like she wants to do. Gilliat get. I'm just saying, we wouldn't have Gilead the way it is today in the show if she did not go off, and do her own thing, and like overstep a bit. But I will say much, like June those two are learning their lesson the hard way that sometimes you get down much Dula more planning in Boston, people for you go, you know, as silly as it sounds reading the bible out loud. Crazy lady goof silly actions. All right. So then because it's Janine and something bad needs to happen, this episode. What happens she volunteers to become their handmade again and have a sibling for their for Angela or what, what do they call? The Charlotte is benign is the fakeness Charlotte's room. And so she offers to do that, and then right as she sang that even or no right? As she gets it out. She's like I can I can make a sibling for you. I, I can do that. And just like I just wanna do God's work could she's like. Game. No, she little breaking genuine about is just with her. That's what she's. Oh, god. And then right. Then Lydia steps in like savagely whips, her front of everyone with the with the Hanes. No, no. It's, it's a retractable baton. It's the stick. But then it has like long leather fringe like several whips. It's an SM but. Nine tails. The internet will correct me if I'm wrong. But I think. It's. Yeah. Well, not just what it's called. But if that's specifically the implement tastic would that be Gilead? Requisitioned all of the. Text ways and use them for keeping line. So she whips the hell out of her and then it's brutal everybody in the room commanders wives. Everybody is shocked. It was just brutal. And you see the commanders in the room are like which f just happened article I was reading the recap was like, it's very interesting that like it seems strange that the commanders of like basically done this government, sanctioned rape program and have done all these other times, are like seeing a woman, getting beaten her, like I can't be, you know. It you see at the end. Lydia realize what has just happened on what she has done in this particular room. And it's not pretty I found this confusing, and I hope you to or the internet will help me with this, but the internet's full of help. I'm sure so at this point Lydia realizes what she's done. There's a chill in the room like it's awful. And she says, I'm sorry. She doesn't follow it up. And so at that moment, I was like is she sorry is she sorry, because she beat Janine like in front of them, or that she let Johnny get far enough to say the things that she, what is she sorry, I think she I think, in that moment, she is sorry that she did that in that room full of people because there is probably some either lake lessening, her her power or some punishment to be had. But I think her like genuine emotion in that moment, is what did I do? Like I think while she is beating Janine. She is like she is act. Eating out her PTSD shot in her right mind. When I think, should over the line for having crazy reactions because of what she is experienced but what you need to think about though, is like that is, well within her job description, it is. But I think that she thinks that she loves Janine I don't think she would have ever done that to Janine if she were in Harare. So that's the sobbing part later when we see her which was, was interesting, 'cause I knew that she felt sorry, because she hurt someone that I think she has found some degree of love for that. In that moment, when she apologized the commanders I was thinking, will, she says doing something that's perfectly within her job description, and its moments and actions like that, that uphold Gilead 's laws and all of that. And. All of the commanders in wives in that room on paper, totally agree with what she did and would have would have said before they witness, the that, that, yes, of course, that's what would happen that is that is right. And she deserves it. But it's also one of the things where is it much like Serena, getting finger cut off, like everybody would agree? That, that's the thing. But it's not necessarily the thing you do like it's behind closed doors. That. And also, you know, in the, the moments leading up to getting beaten it's hard to not pity Janine because she so clearly is off and unstable and things she is trying to do God's work and just have more babies, and you see her desperation to be with her daughter. And I think that's probably hard for the parents in the room to not identify with for the air quotes parents. Air quotes homeowners. I'm still not over that, but yeah, I just I found that whole scene just it was interesting because I thought will would should she have played it differently in that she should've escorted, Lydia out? And then beaten her privately to uphold Gilead thing like the whole thing was just bizarre. To me, it's like it's like a thing we want to happen, but we don't wanna have to think about it or see. That's what privilege people always. Eight me from it. I know what happens, but don't have to see it happen at it's finest living in America. So the things that I've heard is that Serena has some info four June about Hannah that she realize in a little softening. You know, I'm gonna play ball with you moment. So tell me about, and that's a little bit later. I feel like that's like a sign that she is taking to heart wet June was saying about, you know. Where the dress do thing pulled strings. Yeah. So what does she tell her? What is the information? Do you remember pop quiz slash recap? That would be great. And she says, oh, girl age Hannah girl, Hannah's each would be at a school for the school for domestic arts. Yeah. Yeah. Homework forever. Right. And that they play outside, and that would be in this region, and that they play outside of certain times. Yeah. I think she told her exactly where the slow issues like since she lives, if she lives here, this is where she would go to school. Oh, and they play outside after lunch. So let's big deal because that's insider info. Yeah. And also. She took her to Hannah she knew where she was in that. We still don't know if that we think that was the house because the handmade comes out with her, but the Martha comes out with her, but there were several kids it wasn't just hand was a nanny that oversaw. Hannah in the car in the limousine. It's just her. They pull up. I think it's to the house. The mar- the comes out with her talk to her in the front. There's another. Ariza another genus left in the car, right? Another scene, though where there there's a school scene. There's several of them. I don't remember what it was the. That was last season. So the the alliances being forged seemingly with June. Serena, so, so tell me about Canada in this episode. What happens the candidates because we got Emily finally, call their wife at the end of the last episode, and then Luke, Luke who kinda finally warm to the baby and Moyer, who is trying to keep everybody kind of doing a thing keeping all spinning all the plate. Yes. She's keeping she as she said, we're all fucked up, but she's trying to keep everybody fucked up on a normal level and keep things rolling. So what happens here. What happens? What do we know about Canada this week? All Canada stuff is Senator on Emily, the only Luke Maura thing that you get is at the very, very end which is a little, so, yeah, Emily goes back home, but isn't living there, she's kind of easing her way back in, and as she explains to her wife. But like they're not together. They're probably we don't we don't know if her way has had other relationships in the road. Somebody on like. She remarried as she had. The situation there. It's I, I wanna say no based on this episode like you don't actually see evidence in one way or another. They meet in a public place. Yeah. And then go back to the house, the White House, Canada and it's during the day. So Oliver is at school. Yeah. But he's set to come home and like an hour and Emily's like oh, she's there. Oh, yeah. He's been warrant or at he's. By the situation. So we don't know anything in this senior. We don't know if mom has if Candida mom has, like look her name. I know I'm getting a mom Lawrence Canada. Mum fred. We don't know if Canada mom has talked about Emily has explained Emily situation has a new partner. We have no clue. What's going on here? Emily feels super awkward chief and says that she it's awkward, but then Canada mom's like yeah, so, you know, like she's gonna like, of course, it's going to be awkward, but this is totally worth the awkwardness. Like, don't even think doesn't seem to be any like got this other person that have been with the entire time you're gone. No, no. There weren't any pictures on the mantle or anything like that. But there's not a lot. It's still very. Formal between the two of them. They are just feeling other out, and you can tell I'm only as obviously. Still justin. Yes. Yeah. So it's, it's awkward, but nice is what I wrote down like Canada, mama's Sylvia, Sylvia. Okay, we've got Sylvia. And then you. Great. So then we go up to Oliver's room. He still not home from school yet. She goes up to room because she's like dissolve even remember me and you can tell that she's been holding back this question forever. And then she finally says it and then your heart breaks little teeny event. In you into the room and this is where I just started crying couldn't hold it anymore because like there's pictures of him and Emily and him and Emily an Sylvia. I know I'm going to cry just talking about it. And then you see a picture that he drew of Emily as a superhero, and then Emily kind of is like that. And she's like it's us a superhero trying to fight your way back to us. And that is when I just I couldn't I couldn't handle it anymore man. Right. No. It will look. And then he bring while she's in there. I know. And then he comes home. So, again, the organization of the episode is we've we're cutting back. So this is not all one cohesive, scenes, just when I like dry up about. Then they cuts back to it and she's. Sylvia is like, well, you we need to read your book, and go to, you know, typically doing that, even it was so. Oh man. He he walks in, like high high. Hi, I'm not supposed to hug you until you're ready. Just like oh, God, Justin. I see you starting to it's terrible. Oh man. Synopsis reading was like helixsleep. Maybe a performance in this scene is just incredible in like every like cell resulted mannerisms and all are things like totally genuine authentic. And they said this should win an EMMY. Yeah. After the and like she have kids in real life because she would be like. Oh really intimate. So they go upstairs and they're doing, you know, the bedtime thing. And he's like, will you read to me to Emily, and she's like, yeah. Of course, than so she starts creating to him. And then she makes contact with Sylvia, and then she starts to choke up, and then he takes over for her because he, he. I know guys ING ever. I know you're gonna cry cry tell you what we watched pauses for second going to Justin crime store. We were my parents day and we were just flipping through TV. We're eating dinner after dinner hanging out in the Winnie. The Pooh movie was on. That's the UN McGregor. The stop it. The first ten minutes of that movie, I will defy anyone who has a soul and heart watch that. And not. Oh my God. Like 'cause I, I like the blanket, I came home from the hospital when he threw blanket. I used to have a big Winnie. The Pooh pictures of me like propped up against the winning the in my baby's so mean when you go way back. Yeah. Do I was a train wreck like the first I was, like, what are we like five minutes into this movie? I'm already. My son's main comfort thing when it throughout his youngest childhood was a small stuffed. Piglet and he's of his piglet is a girl, but she doesn't like pink very much. Okay. But he's very attached to piglet. So if you're looking for something to continue your waterworks nephew and follow it up with some more. It's awesome. Because they're like at a picnic because Christopher Rob's, getting ready to go to boarding school. So they're having a good buy dinner for Christopher. It's amazing first of all to Larry's, but it's like. So, yeah, so this. Yeah, so I don't know. I don't need to watch this. Yeah. All the two years all your feelings. And then it kinda cuts to the two of them. Sylvia, Emily, on the stoop and Emily's like it back to the hotel, or whatever, and you're like, okay, this is still kind of weird, even though they had this tender moment with their son, and then. Sylvia says something like oh, you should stay and have a beer or something that and she's like, yeah, I should. And then you think she's still going to leave and then she doesn't and then the kind of ends with the two of them on the front porch. Porch swing. Yeah. She grabs the beer and takes swig and then it also a hopeful note. Yeah. It was it was. So tell me about Luke, and his great plan of being in the baby to the protest. Yeah. Yeah. I don't think we ever actually saw Lucan the baby at the protest. We just see film of it later. So we don't actually see it happen. You see because correct me if I'm wrong from the articles in, like Serena, and June. See it on TV together, right? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. This is like at the end of the night, putting them. Yeah. Some reason. Offered is still they're still yet. And so we're choose joy Lawrence, though. I know. But, like, why wouldn't go back to Lawrence's house one where you're on the fan? Has not left, yet with all of the Handmaid's because they all leave together. I know but like all the. Even in this episode show. No, we don't free range in it for your engagement. He doesn't go out, so he didn't go to go to the baptism. He got off the hook. You don't see them once in this episode. So all the Hemmings are in the van but for some reason offered is not in the van she was heading out and then the comes and gets her because I need you to see something, and he walks into this, other room, where another, I is with Serena read. Also showing them video, and when so you can hear like when they're walking down the hallway is like sounds, it sounds heating, and you hear crowd sounds, then you realize they're chanting something like it's a protest. And then you walk into the room and Serena and Fred, or they're staring in ped- with an I it's really weird technology again. And a Jenky Samsung tap, it was kind of expecting it to be one of those giant TV's that they had more kids that are on the floor in Vienna. Console that looks like furniture or to you, mom. I don't know why. But they're watching on an ipad. Like a I who maybe they didn't take Chicago. Wore news or something. The reason they want the reason they went there is they want her to identify its Luke in the video, because they know it's the baby and Serena is like tearing up. Proof of life. She looks healthy fine. Right. Was serena's. Big thing is like you let each that my baby off with a murderer. Right. Like I didn't watermelons washer. I don't get that same guarantee or something like that. So she is like overjoyed to see the baby. She's like, oh, she big, you know, like all of her heart. So, I guess, to the military of Gilead, they're like, oh, now we know where she is. Maybe I was, I was, frankly released surprised that somebody else saw this not Fred or Serena, and was like, hey, that looks like they're baby. We. Don't know how to show this. The baby is still pretty young like sick riot for, like babies real similar. They look like maybe, right. But I, I know it's been what a month or so here's my thing. I don't know too. I mentioned this to us we I think, I think you're here when I talked about it about how June dressing up in disguises Martha, like is the one thing that kind of makes me laugh because all you have like a phone that says, hey, here's a handmade is try to scape one two through. I dunno five times four times. Now, hey, if you see her doing anything crazy, maybe you should digger. Now I've gotten that far yet. Clearly, we got drones scouring the river yet we can spot watch are watching. On their bed. Exactly. So what do you think's going to come of that? That, that that's like a bad omen thing. Right. That's gonna try and get the baby back. How do we think people are in Canada? I said this last season when because remind people things work both ways. So if. Yeah. And it has got to be some people from Gilead, and Candida. Oh, yeah. At least some like crossover of, you know, counterintelligence or people, you know, on the ground. There is basically Russia and the situation or go, so it's not implausible for someone there to be sympathetic to the cause for Gilead into, you know, be able to run down the baby is there that makes me feel better makes you feel better. I don't know that liquid catch on real quick. So whereas there. Yeah. Maybe this is this is the beginning of the Luke redemption ark way. Maybe they're gonna come for the baby and Lucas finally going to have his moment when he can protect his child, when he's actually going to stop heard this one, take care of it, and make sure that the baby does not get taken out. It'd be nice. Also, good for his relation right? Good for Lusake Asher, like win. Luke does need a win and people on people and social media hate Luke so much Luke shit all the time. It just feel bad. I, I will say that I need the people, the people that want Luke to turn into Rambo. And be like out in the woods training to kill everyone to stop it, because this is come on do not. Everybody is, like that, not everybody's instincts are great. That's not real. Yeah. Yeah. Doesn't happen. You don't like train up in the in the woods and say, hey, I'm going across the board. No, it's not. It's not how any of this works. Also, he hasn't been through the constant trauma, causing him to lake harden in the way that, like June, and other hand may have like he hasn't had that, like impetus like fighter die. Right. In Canada treated pretty nice. Yes. He's been kind of out of the fight, I guess, for like directly impact on him. Yeah, but like not necessarily by his own choice. You know he thought he was gonna wind up in Canada, with his wife and daughter. So what's the feeling going into next week? What are what are the what are the threads that we're going to next week story? What are we looking at? I'm really enjoying seeing more Canada. Canada seems less boring than last season. Right. Well, they had they had to give them something to do. Especially with Emily up there. Yes. Yes. So much more interested in the storylines. Yeah. I hope we get more into the inner workings of the counterintelligence in Canada, because clearly hollies now at risk. Right. So I kind of I'm interested to see how that's going to go down. And how early Lucan catch on to anything at all. Like you said more, you'll be there. She'll catch on a thick super early. She'll sniff some out the second becomes a thing. But, you know, Lou Beale, take the family photo album or you'll be like, oh my God. Just switching everything over the new the to anchor this week. I was splicing up some stuff and I ran into that part of the episode where we're talking about Luke not wanting to get in the trunk because he needed to get the photo albums like talk doing it. So Luke still got that in them. And that's why he does not need. Lover not a fighter. Sympathize with but. She was not before, right? No wasn't. She's coming to the other direction the site that was another thing about the show like the flashbacks back to when Hannah was seeing June before the fall was so startling. She slaves. She speaks differently. She carries herself differently. Just a totally different person. And it was really jarring comparing that to the June of today and the effects of the traumatic events such as been through. Yeah. Yeah. Not just how she's you know, lost all of her. I don't know what to call it. Yeah. Like softness. But also that she's become a warrior, and before she was, so clearly, not barely hold her own with her mom. Right. And that was the thing there are. No, there was a flashback where they showed her mom because I do show Hannah's baptism, and there was a lion. Don't use religion to make decisions for your child, because they do baptize her in a religious ceremony, even though they're not necessarily like super religious people. So that was interesting thing, the end, the episode with the baptism Lucas baptizing, right? Yeah. That I think that convinced the priest because they're not technically her parents. Yeah, I know it was kind of, sweet, Canadian priest refugees, and you're like whatever. Yes. Just bring the whatever God's gonna be fun. Probably. Yeah. So it sounds like a great upset. Nikki said it was her favorite ones over the out of the four. Oh, share. Yeah. Yeah. Stuff happened because Nikki watched the episode. Yes. I didn't I will because now I got feel my feelings. You gotta feel warrant now. Yeah. Because I'm like a greeting card crying guy. That's just me. I'm on a softy. I was fine before I kids post. Yeah. Man. Real push over something soft you. Oh man. That's what. My son, you time. Oh, yeah. I told you guys I cried at the end of major league because I was overjoyed. They, they came behind the. Mall and they made it. Six months pregnant, and Tim is like what is happening? Came back. Well, I just so. I mean and it was just. I really I was like they shouldn't one, but they came back in one in, there is a lot of crying at this date me. Picture developing commercials. Getting their pictures developed lake weddings and playing with their children when I was pregnant, it was, I was, I was in this guy's I cried once when I saw mailbox because it reminded me that I wait gets worse because it reminded me that when I had the babies, I should put the color balloons of their sex on our mailbox so that the neighborhood would know if they were boys girls because I didn't know the sex going into it. I just I just start crying. He's like what's wrong? We have to put the balloon. On the. So that the snow with the cheddar. Oh man. So it was a fun roller coaster for. That's awesome feel free to share on the social media, your tales of pregnancy crying, or just normal cry. What's the most ridiculous seemingly ridiculous thing that you got emotional. The bar set. Major league, I know. I heard that story before I totally forgot store. That's amazing. Keep in mind, I've seen major league a many many, many times it was like a family favorite growing up. I know it's not a family movie. So don't think that is. Children. No, you shouldn't because there's members that woman with the owner. To, to motivate, the they get naked photo of her, and they basically covered up every time they win. They took a piece off. Yeah. Yeah. Visually giant cardboard cutout. It's couplers terrible. Misogynous kinda. Yeah, but yes. So are well sounds like a winner of an episode. Lots of highs lots of lows but still nothing super nothing made able. Oh, yeah. No. Yeah. Now the one thing we didn't talk about that. I know happened from reading was the June launches herself onto Janine to stop. Lydia for beat navarine when he has saps. She yells at her. Like a dog. She's like, no, no. The way that you yell it. Right. Someone who doesn't understand that. She pray practically was down. So I have heard, I know I will tell people that I'm anti spoilers guy people everybody in this room knows this because we've had multiple conversations about books and even they've spoiled multiple things for me in the past. But go on day we'll get the I don't know. I don't know what we're talking about. But I'm sure it happened just because I don't remember it doesn't mean to eighties. Now. See just forgot. I was talking about, oh, that we're going to get a Lydia backstory, like everyone's been clamoring for backstory for like two seasons. Are like I don't care what you just give me a little backstory, apparently. It's coming along with Nick back story, too. Yeah, I think we're going to get some of the story. Now we got a little bit of a Nick back story. But I, maybe we'll get some stuff about his brother, the brother's the big thing, right? Guess brother drugs or alcohol about how he got to be so bad with women. Well, I sensed Lydia backstory was coming because of the robbing seen I was like, okay, we're going to find out more about right, and we'll let season you had that whole scene where she talks to June about how her sister's baby, but it wasn't her fall wasn't my fault. And it was that whole weird moment where you're like, oh, there's a little shot outside the brain of Lydia. So I look forward to that just because she's amazing she's incredible. Oh, also, yes, handmade that we really like in which was more scenes. But we can never remember the number. What's your character the character name? Already. Lifted up during the episode it's almost forgivable hinman all my like Ayla may alma o of name, you know, I, I do not know I don't know what command actually I'd never heard of. Outside of my grandmother, grandma's name was. Yeah, that's one of those like old-timey names, you could bring Amelia. There's some Amelia's rolling around now as she was a really great lady. My friend has a couple of old time any girls and their doorbell. Some Helen's Helen's back in the world. Ruth. I like that. That's a good one. Let's nora's. I don't know that nor is an old name Elsie. Yes. My sister's friend has an. L share because of frozen, which by the way, new frozen trailer this. I heard it's interesting. No. I, I like the first one. Anything else? But this week's episode before we. Wind down into rally bonus content about whatever is spoiled for Deanna super excited off. There's more than one.

Gadget do your job man. So anyway. Okay. So spoiler bonus content. Thanks for joining us, if you're gonna cut out. But now we're gonna talk about apparently things. I've spoiled. None of them didn't have in a while. Remember can't remember? Are you a spoilers person? I know we've talked about this, but like. Thing because I'm always late to stuff. I don't care. So like there's several what's happening until my friends homey, spoil stuff to my classes, all the time you really get nuts about. Facebook. There's a Jillian Handmaid's tale groups, and I've joined a lot of them just to kind of keep up with who's other what's going on in to throw our info out there and it's kind of funny to see the militancy of the Heo don't spoil. Here's what you can talk about here. People are full real. Here's one group. We're like you only talk about political stuff on Saturday and flight. No. I sorta got that's political its political Friday or Saturday. I'm gonna make fun of it, 'cause whatever group do what your heart care force. All I know is that political. I don't have time so you guys can talk about the hell you want. And I'll just delete it of. I wanna read it. So I have that magic pro, you know, that, that, that ability and use it. But I haven't had to do that really. We all do because usually it's not too long before you're on our page, you kind of know what you're getting from me. It's pretty out there, so that hadn't troll problems in a long time not that I'm asking for any allier asking for. I'm not I'm not asking for any. So, you know, if you're out there and you're thinking about it, that's fine. I haven't done a good like troll hunting a long time but I'm really made it lady gave the recommendation to like that's gonna be the one. Like I said, we're human show, everybody out there. You don't like our show. There's lots of other podcasts like six or seven but chef lady. Nothing but love. Although my reaction on one of my one of the books in my class, or one time of going around my classroom, the end of the day, like putting stuff way, you know, like that. I dunno normally do that. But that day I decide it's normally put things away. Usually have the kids do it. But anyway, so I'm just gonna walk around and kind of take him stuff out putting stuff into their like tubs. And all this. I see on the dictionary on the, the page part like the top where all the pages, the ends of the page. Yes. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. My last name and then sucks. Just like how is not funny. How is it not money? Did you leave it? Of course. Classroom right now. So they were Smith that Smith sucks. And I was like, all right. That's how I feel when I. Podcast for fans of the show because you're not one of the I was like that the mailing again. And I think it's a generational thing like I would never go out of my way for even something. Hey, you suck. Yeah, I get it. And I think I think that the generation that is doing all that. Now, I think they're little more comfortable with it. Like kinda roll with it, not as affected by it, and I'm not necessarily like offended. I would love to know why she thinks that, because that's me because I want to know but we're not gonna yeah but like, oh, this show is more breasts. This show is what it is what we are. Right. It will never gonna be any other way. It was always hiding always going to devolve to what it is. Which is just didn't watch episode that. Higher. Let's go there. When Tian walked in, I was like I heard this week's episode is great. And she was like, what? Oh, one more fun criticism story of like mean tweets one time. So I'm in my class with my co teaching partner who I love and have a great. She no longer does teach with me, but at the time, we had a great run together, and is the last year we were together and this kid, raise his hand and he's got a book and the back goes. And he said my maiden name he goes, who's miss. You know, whatever my main was, let's say Jones who was Jones and I was like why? Because it's been enough years, that no one in that room would know what my except for my coach to partner and I go, why. And he goes back in this book, it says who hates Jones and there's like five checks. Like. Just. And then you tell the kid. Told them because it was like it was a fun class. Type of class that could be. Mation. My partners Laffy I laugh and I'm like that's not good. And he should funny. You should have done like a whole thing. Really, like yeah. That lady, she used to teach here, he was really a jerk. That reminds me of an offshoot ten gently of that over ten gently tangent. Yes. Yes. That is word did anybody ever read. The book miss Nelson is missing when they were told Vickie about this book. It's so familiar. So essentially, what happens is this teacher. That's like first grade or something ridiculous. And the kids hater hate, the teacher, even though, she's like super nice, and she's not a terrible teacher. So she leaves and acts like she has to go on a trip. But she secretly disguises herself as like this horrible teacher, like, yes. And comes back as disguises herself. And is like for me to the kids to make them see this is what a super sucky, teachers really like so then when she comes back at the end, she's like, oh, the kids like, oh my God, you're bad. We love you. Yeah. Missing you can find. I saw my child should read appreciate a little more. I mean it's no poky little puppy, but right? It's. Komo puppies. My jam, that's my guy, right there. Wow. Okay. Popey lovo house. My favorite little golden book. I was just gonna say, I, I read, little golden books to read what the kids jam enthused jam the golden finding books, whatever they're called. So on the back at advertises the old ones like a little puppy. And I'm like, oh, I remember that. But the book that it actually is, is Papa troll birthday thing because they love Papa troll. So we read a lot of pop trilby Paul said Papa troll. Like moving all patrol. That's big thing, kids like pop trouble. The pop show. But all the other books are pretty classic. I didn't think I would like Dada by Jimmy Fallon and I love it. Yeah. I thought it was going to be Domino's, like, goofy that. My sister gave it to me, as a gift and the boys, a love it, and we love reading it with them because they can't read what book did you like when your kid? I don't know about early childhood. Well, there was a book called the little house when I was not old enough to read, and it was about this house. That was in a like a country setting and then the city was kind of about. Like urban sprawl not heard about this book, illustrations, first of all, our beautiful. But so the city kind of comes around the house, right building, huge buildings around the little house. Little house stays there. But it's all like dingy dirty, and there's all these buildings and cars, and then they put it on a basically, the story is they put it on, like a trailer, the house and move and move it back out to the country. So it can be a little house again. And I'd love to that book, and I don't know why. But the illustrations were really incredible. So I can read says, like oh, also the biggest thing whichever never. Oh man. I kids books. But then when I was old enough to read, I loved number the stars. I was really into that book for many years, and I was batch waited with Denmark, don't know why. I was like seven, and then another big book for my childhood was a secret guard. I was upset man like hallmark TV movie adaptation of the secret garden. Summa creepy thing at the beginning, we're thinking houses on it, and like the well even like the whole plague taken out, everybody man. That's a heavy beginning of that. Have you never read it or seen it? No. I guess not. No spoiler alert. A little spooky, the beginning of superheavy. Yeah. The black plague at some at some European. Yeah. I don't remember but it leaves her kind of don't remember. It'll because their parents, their parents die and they have to go live with the aunt, uncle or somebody, but they are really rich. But it's like, yeah, this cavernous house where the little within India. Yes, because they were colonized. So there you're there in England, and they're in, in India, and I think there's a plague in India that yes, they are because at the beginning of the some of the colonizers. Bonus. But because at the beginning of the TV movie, I remember that they are like burning everything because they're just trying to make sure that whatever has this thing on his you know, because they have the throw her dollar in the fire. Are they want to one of my childhood favor? Butts involves somebody being really sick network balloons. Do tell tala teen rabbit, oh, never read it. I'm sorry. I had my childhood copying. That's good. I mean it's sad. But it's good. Yeah. Those one of my favorites I wish they'd had Sandra point when I was growing up this. She yes, those are great little. I was a pocket for corduroy kinda guy like motorist regret. You guys had much more quaint, favorite childhood books that were you like the Grimm's fairy tales rail? Really my parents started reading when I was I wanna save four or five the started reading the original version of the wizard of Oz. And I loved it. I was terrified, but I loved it. It was great at a lot of nightmares, but I made them read it over and over again. And I just kept trying to invent. Ruby slippers for myself out of found things like this went on for years. I just I would get like a pair of athletic slippers and try to figure out how to make them look like ruby slippers, wear them around the house, all the time. I really really, really loved that story. I wanted to be superman. Original once they're actually creepy things, and like extra terrors like on the way to the emerald city. No, no, the demise of the wicked witches much more gruesome than it is in the Zor, scary, roller skating clown guys, like return to us. No. Never seen return to us. I know seen return. I don't think I remember it. I think returned to us one alone. She plays Dorothy in that version, and it is super weird crucible could not play like not a raise eversion of Dorthy, right? No. It was super strange like she's not necessarily weird. But the whole like it's dialed up to eleven not. No. I mean the way she played doors out her actresses weird, right? And yet interesting way. Yes. Very much. So but yeah, it's it's super strangers. Dudes that have like on stilts that have wheels that they roll around, and there's a disembodied head thing and in the original wizard of Oz. There's these like, can't remember what they're called these things that, like they look like part of the landscape. They look like squash boulders, but then, like the pop up and have like these weird fuzzy bodies and legs, but no arms and weird faces and like the mushroom guys Mario, brother. I mean, they kind of speaking, my look Clinton that, but way. Uglier. Okay. See, do you guys remember the animated version of Allison wonderland? I remind original Disney movie one. Yes, where the cat stripes, come off the cat. Oh, yeah. That gave me so many nightmares. Like very psychedelic even understand. I. The animated. Yeah. I feel like what I'm getting is like acid is not for, you know. Oh, I always knew. I never tried it because I always knew my brain chemistry funeral no acid or mushrooms. That's why I haven't done them either really should not know if I ever did that I knew that it would go horribly horribly wrong for me, because just watching those shows gave me. I my mom took me to see what's that Disney movie where they're all trippiness music, the whole time. Fantasia Fantasia Fantasia. So will meaning my mom. Well, we know your tales from the dark side over there. We get not Dory, crap. Dark nine mountain is not I had. Nightmares? Not. Of demons, only that much worse than every other Disney movie that opens with the parents dying. I'm not saying that for some reason, Bubis didn't give me Matic nightmares. There's some redemption there, that was just like creepy and weird nowhere. There's more than one Fantasia Fantasia two thousand. The original Fantasia two thousand my mom was so well meeting. Freaked out. I used to watch other crates, this explains your, your book collection. Much. Good. Did have a Greek myths book growing up. Oh, yeah. Good style. It was very dark. Yeah. Thirty gruesome. Yeah. Like for kids, but it's still kinda told like the even the friendly versions of Greek mythologies. Had to find it again. The artwork was incredible. I have a copy. That's it's like from the seventies, and it has like borders on it, and the borders are really intricate. And I mean, the best remember, like what do they call it like the dark boatman, who comes in like? Yeah. And he comes and takes you. Yeah. So I like some dark stuff when I was growing up 'cause I love. But day it's not like I'm the only kid that enjoyed these things growing up. True. Just seem to my grandma is just like always giving me scary things. She's very scary. Things only read horror thriller moms dads, my mom's mom, who's your mom into scary things? Like forever for work of she just doesn't get to read a lot for, for pleasure. Right. Because she doesn't want to. I know she wants to read more, but she has to read so much for Merck, one of those things where like Nikki Serra were like the teach us their brains all day. So when they come on, just went elect point breaker fest in the furious. No, my mom comes on, we're paperwork. Nikki comes home and watches the dodo, the dodo, maybe the dodo. So don't start. I think is like a social media deal. But it's all like animal videos in animal stories, I have seen it on Facebook, and they have they now have a show on animal clinical dodo heroes, which is really good show where they like follow. It's like do rather extrordinary animal things. Like there was one that there's this lady that lives somewhere in the Asian part where there's elephants. She's, she's either from England or she's from America lives there and she has like an elephant sanctuary. Wow. And it's really cool. And she goes on rescues, all these elephants, because, like, in over there, they use them as labor like people that are in the villages, like still use them to do like manual labor tasks, you know, these like remote villages, like one of the villa St. wants the elephants are gone. I don't know. She convinces them to get rid of them, and send them to her finger, these kids. Right. No, no. That didn't seem to be any of that. It just seemed to be figured out when you're elephants gone. And then, like, you know, they run into some of them are like this elephant is like, so old really can't do anything anymore, and so the she has taken, but it's really good dodo here animal planet. So, yeah, all right. To still don't know anything spoiled for you. Think about it. I'm Super Bowl. Remember rant at random times and text you. Sukhavich evokes boilers. I I'm not like on certain things like Nikki is one who can like read the last five pages of the book to figure out what happens at the end still read the whole book, absolutely do that now zero percents. They can't have been long enough that I'm not really thinking about it. Like I need to be like a good amount of time. Like, like I found out what happened at the end of some famous shows what picture of that tonight. I feel like you need to post on Facebook. Although the tweeden, yes. The only. Now I replied this things on Twitter. Maybe I'll up right. I'm gonna stop the going back there ever. Sure. No, I had like the end of breaking bad. The sopranos things like that. Oh, I think you might have done the sopranos. Oh, wait. Have been you feel like there's a statute of limitations on that. That was like ten years ago. We were friends ten years ago. Anyway. So some of these, like epic shows have been ruined for me. But, like as long as there is a really big buffer between when it's ruined for me when I'm actually watching it because the game on everything. I'm fine what do you lead to the game on right now? Anything good. Well, I mentioned last week, I randomly stopped watching breaking bad 'cause like is very good. So, like it after after a little bit, I feel I felt like this thing shows, where centrally the same over and over again there for a little bit. So. No, I lost a little different now. Time you gotta get in there. Mike, mike. It's way better. Guys, don't even know I believe that it gets Crete. Get there the director creator, whatever had so much creative control over this show. And so the ending is so satisfying, and so good you need to do. I might need a little bit of that after game of thrones. See on that note. Madam king. We're, we're not going. Talking about. Joining us staying around for bonus content. We really do love you. We do real. You're the best, right? So we'll talk to you.

268: Steve Lyons season positives and what players may move featuring: John Todora and Kevin Plawecki

"It is episode to sixty eight of red SOx beat. Yeah. There still red sox beat even though this season is brutal, Josh. Lewin with you, we're to keep on forging forward at the time I am recording this. The Red Sox have still only six wins and they're about to play the phillies and then. Play more good. They've just had to deal with the Yankees and at the time of this recording, this is just before the Monday night game at Yankee Stadium. They haven't beaten the Yankees and it like a thousand years. We're going to talk about what's gone wrong. We're GONNA look ahead a little bit Kevin. Plewinski will join us one of our spring training interviews. One of the few new red sox was doing something. Correctly, the backup catcher cam employee. In fact, he's been better lately than Christian Vasquez. You're going to hear from him and a little bit. We've got some sports wagering to talk about and we'll get you to that in short order Steve. Lyons will join psycho will have things broken down for us as well. On this particular pods number two, six, eight, two, six, eight would be a lovely era for anybody. Know Red Sox seems to have that lot of guys in the eights, nines and tens. But. We'll get into that I don't WanNa get too deep into that because it's just very depressing. One good thing to tell you with sports coming back. Your chance to bet on Sports is here and your exclusive wagering partner bet online died a G.. That's what we want directly here. But online and sat down with Eddie George from the NFL Robert Horry seven NBA champion Harold. Reynolds. They're doing some cool things with this fandango. Thing that they're calling it a lot of Nice conversation just about what it's like to be playing ball again in these very weird times. But go to bed online dot ag you can check out all the odds up-to-date sports news. Don't forget to sign up and take advantage of the welcome back to Sports Bonuses Bet online your online wagering solutions. Are you willing to wager that the worst is over for the Red Sox I? Think we're all sitting here hoping that's the case. Let me get you caught up again I know some of this is dated information, but the first two games that Yankees series Garrett Cole was that was not going to go well matter what right He's now won twenty straight regular season decisions. Taupin comes in replace judge has four runs batted in DJ Lemay. Hugo's two for five in that game seasons batting average drop. So at that point, the socks had lost twelve of their last thirteen against the Yankees that was game jd Martinez was over four with four punch outs. Sorry J. D. The video is not going to save you here. You got to tough it out, figure it out all on your on. Saturday eleven five was the final. The Yankees had four separate multi run innings all without stanton or judge. Lemay. Who left with a sprained left thumb after his third ab he missed two and a half weeks with that same injury a couple years back. Colorado. So he might be up that same time here but the Yankees with Gleyber Torres. Struggling Sanchez hitting Hicks isn't Hidden Gardner. Side. Hitting Chapman has pitch for him. Yet there in the first place, they are as of this recording undefeated at Yankee stadium there are a Zombie Horde, these guys they just keep coming whether they're famous player or someone nobody knows that well, Mike Ford Tyler Wade. Those I mean the Yankees be lineup is still stronger than a lot of eight teams lineups, right so the socks with all this losing at Yankee Stadium and as I'm recording this. Go ahead and getting combined what they've done against the raise in the Yankees lately, the last twenty eight games won three of them. And if you want to really be depressed McKie's batting average is higher than the red sox winning percentage I don't want to go too deep down the whole year, but he's doing some amazing things. I. Mean when a guy ever signed a contract is big and over performed on it. Early I know there are a dozen more years to go but mookie with another three home run game got six of those in his career. Now, Hank Aaron had one. Mook. He's already got six. He's GonNa play another dozen years that was a red sox thing and I don't again what WanNa to get too deep into it because it just makes you wanNA, rip your eyeballs out but when you have a transcendent talent. A transcendent homegrown talent you do everything it takes to keep the transcendent homegrown talent am I wrong or wouldn't you rather have Mukhi than Chris? Sale Alder respect to Chris Sale even if he wasn't hurt he, he's not a homegrown guy. He's not an every day difference makers once every five days difference maker if he's healthy. At least the Sunday night game which they lost four to two very boring game. That stopped that run of eight or more runs in six consecutive games. The losing streak went to seven but basically, the red sox forgiving up an earned run every inning for a week and when they're going five or six runs, even seven runs there's still not winning those games highest Dra in team history right now, and that'll happen when guys who made one hundred and thirteen stars for the year before won't make a single start for you the year after I get some of that but. In the Monday night game red sox starters. have. Thrown four innings or fewer in each of the thirteen games that haven't been started by evolve the ORB Perez and the Red Sox won twelve in those thirteen games. Let's let's at least attempt to cheer you up. Mildly I'm going to bring on Steve. Lyons here by the magic of telephone and I know the. The lines are in great these days we're trying to do all this by zoom. so forgive me it's not going to be perfect quality phone call, but if anybody could cheer US up maybe Steve Cycle Lions find some light at the end of this deep dark tunnel. Let's try here is conversation with Steve Lyons with more still to come after that. The lions is on the phone ladies and Gentlemen, and we don't normally do it this way because he's on a time crunch. Time Price. We're going to catch up in real time normally be when I talked about before I before but like I've already hit record, how are you? I'm doing was sort of me. I can't any bad words then. Well as the podcast so he can take a few liberties here and there I would say the F. Word still something you should stay away from if you wanna say like after something I would say only thing asked. If that help though I, I was just monitoring the good listeners you would find it the positive. Out of whatever the heck is going on here I did I miss. Anything and Baby Allen, for do go I mean what can we talk about the Kosic? Well Yeah I mean there are a few positive things there in the rest of the team playing like. That, only. Perfect. you know. Yeah. It's been fun I. Think we kind of predicted that I mean he was the type of player that the team needed. They. Respect they're very little vocal leadership on that team all the really good players, guys like J., d., and Bogie You know those those guys aren't very vocal. They're they're quite leaders. Denver's had a great year last year and you know he doesn't speak English well, obviously can communicate really well with the the Latin players and communicates really well with the Red Sox fans with his his facial expressions. 'cause you pretty much know when he's happy or sad and that was always a lot of fun to watch. But you know the thing that I said was that Verduga coming in is that he's a little bit of a hot dog and that's exactly what that clubhouse needs a guy. That's. A little boisterous a little out there a little you know draws a lot of attention to himself but the way he plays and as long as he's GonNa play. Well, that's always going to be a good thing. Okay. So I'm glad we got a little bit of positive. Let me ask you about jd because I know he's he's struggling and he struggled doubled a bit early last year too and this if video going and video room and just talk him off the ledge it all worked out. There's so much talk. Now because of the new protocols, he can't get in there and looking at the. In between? Them. Now as an ex player and you just. kind of access in the kind of video back when when you played I, get it but I am I wrong jd a little bit too far inside zone ahead at this point couldn't they just go out there and just kind of shake the sketch and The hell with it I'M GONNA pretend I've never seen video I on a good baseball player. I'm going to go out there and get my to knock tonight. Yeah I mean the guys amazingly talented. and it's hard to watch him go through what he's going through town because he's a shell of of the player that we've watched and the players you show player that everybody's seeing since he got released from the Astros, you know years ago but I think what it is with him. You know he has. You know, let's say you need five things to be able to do in order to be the player that he is right now and he feels like someone has taken away one of those things. And that's why might not seem all that important to you and I they him. It's one of the things that made some great and it's gone now and you know, I, think after getting out to start an easy crunch and it's easy to blame and I'm not sure that he's doing this. You know no one really gets talked a lot about how he's feeling. We all know that he's upset that he can't do it. But how much he's relying on that and how much importance he's put on that you know could be a little more than you know than him just really been a good hitter go out there and Let me ask you about Deborah's because I think the guy's GonNa give a concussion because all the Times that he hits himself on the head after he fell off or between the business and that was cute last year when he was hitting three eleven because it's not like he had a consult on the head that often seems like he's bunking himself time time the game now. So I'm worried for out their teammates Alex Cora does he missed what's going on with Robbie? Just looks like he's chasing Feel these been a mess. What is that? Well you know, I. Think a lot of people have brought up the name out Gora. There's no question that Alex was very good for Raviol- and Kinda with them into shape you know stayed on him all the time you know your size potential made him worked harder. And I think no matter who the manager was this year it's a lot harder to do because you don't have the extra time guys around the schedule when they get to the ballpark a lot of them can't even some early to work on things. I. You know I I think he's a little here this year than he was last year he's certainly gone outside the zone more than even easiest. Do you know we've we always talk about basketball on? One of those but you can't hit a pistol in the other batters Fox you know. He's put himself into some really bad hitters counts by being overly aggressive season and it hasn't worked out for them. So you know he needs to settle in a little better than the plane and be a little more selective swinging at. Now on the other side of the ledger here I didn't necessarily bring you on to talk pitching. That's not your meal you necessarily, but you've seen enough of it. You know enough about it look at the Red Sox have been around a hundred and twenty years psycho and only wants that they're teeny IRA then as bad as five point zero one this year over six point. Oh One. Okay. So that's concerning and that's troubling. Lots of three in one lots of three into kind of backed into a corner bats and I'm looking at and I don't mean to pick on Peres. Martine Perez, but he's throwing thirty percent basketball is here. The whole team is throwing thirty seven percent forcing fast fastball or are they just too cute they to Nibley I? Mean there's no other team in baseball I get it. They're not everybody's throwing the fastball a lot these days but everybody else is at at least forty percent at fifty percent it's not thirty seven percent. Yeah, I mean it during the day. I, don't think I'm so far removed from playing this game to say that the the best pitch in the game is still a good basketball I mean they godly the starter who they've basic Colin discovers back. On, its back. And don't roll it. Out Research six of them. You know, I mean, and then Purple Purple Purple. you know I think comes a little bit from the personnel. There's not a lot of guys on and. Not. Too. Many guys can throw you know mid nineties. Godly Weber can't even Martine for is you know he talked about ninety two so they have to go with the weapons that they think they can get away with. And going away from basketball because it's not their best pitch is one of the things that they've decided to do. Now I think we also have to talk about fishing and certainly mentioned the fact that they were prepared for Tommy Johnson Young. On sale and they weren't prepared for heart problems with Iran, and so when you have bills, your number one runs backing him up if Baldy is number three and Martinez number four, and this was going to let guys fight over that number by vomit teams have to do not looking at a pitching staff. Wouldn't have been too darn shabby, and so they weren't really prepared for this hurricane hit them and. Hit a way worse than anyone would have expected. Yeah. It's a great way to put it and I was just talking about how the Yankees, they don't miss the beat roller hitters go down just a little tougher to replace pitching by it's annoying to see the Yankees Luis Stanton and judge in and. Let me ask you like about where it goes from here. I mean, there's no way to team with this rotation this bullpen he's going to the playoffs and if they do out Grad that eight baht or whatever there quickly gone they've got pending reagents here at Bradley Millar even Brandon Workman. So let's start there and even talk about Mitch Moreland and and you know and also Martinez. I mean, it would be a guy that's attractive to a borderline team and he's the number three starter who should get traded in the next couple of weeks reason we'll get traded. I would say that there's there's two untouchables on the team and that's Bogart's endeavors after that I don't think anyone's untouchable. Worry about it. Obviously, the guys that are pending created our guys it comes the move and you know you mentioned Bradley J. D.. You know. We just found out I mean at least we're pretty sure that I believe the use the will be universal in the game moving forward that opens up to fifteen more opportunities for Katie Martinez. So having him popped out of his deal with red sox would not be any big surprise to me so I would think the Red Sox was definitely think about getting something for him this year before that happened. and. Maybe if he strange things out, he can help contending team this year. You know what you're going to get back for him. It's GonNa be quite a bit less than what you normally would it be bundling free agent obviously. you know you mentioned Morlin. He's the guy that certainly get help a team. You know he's The oldest guy on the team he does need as. Better off pending against right handed pitching. A piece of the puzzle that someone can use I just I, cautioned always against you know trading away the farm in a bad year. Guys start over was up well. Guess what they were doing this year looks like starting over starting over isn't any fun is a lot of bump in the road. So you like I I mean I hear Palomar to I wouldn't trade mark we're seeing his best years he's been here. He's played excellent baseball this year I would be working on resigning a guy like are not thinking about trading him away. Let me finish with you Steve Before I let you go and I about the tape. Or prepaid for pre-game show here. But are you like me still looking longingly at every time mookie hit the home run in La and and I and actually out here on the West Coast now. So I can tell you people are already basically thinking this guy's Magic Johnson and a baseball uniform doing need blink and move past it or is it okay to mourn and a little bit what we had and kind of kick the can they? Darn it are. You know and they should have done whatever it took to keep them here. I'm torn because I love watching movies play. We all do signed A. Contract movies out a big guy. He's you know he's already stunts feeling basis. So he's not a run threat anymore he's GonNa. He plays hard. So he is GonNa. Be An old thirty, four, thirty, five years old, and then you still got six more years of that contract pay. So is he gonNA play great for the next five? Yeah I don't see any reason why you wouldn't guys. Nominal talent. But then you're also GONNA be paying him thirty million plus for six to seven years of that contract that aren't going to be all that fun to be around and So you better win now you better win in the near term over the next four seasons. When mookie still at is is absolute best because we all get older and our skills diminish and looking up being a real big I. think that's GonNa hit him a little harder and a little quicker than most. Seniors a positive take told people. Listen to you. They feel better about life. They I. I know you gotTa run I do too. I'm looking forward buddy to where we can catch up over actual beverages and not even socially distant once I'm sure that's going to be twenty twenty, one Thank you for everything. Keep up the great work on Nessin and please stay safe and we'll talk to you soon. Anytime beg you. So that was Steve Lyons now we move along and the the episode I need to mention to his by our good friends at score metrics sports trading system are going to hear more about them and listen to John Door and just a moment I know you've heard of sabermetrics with the Oakland, a.'s and all of that going back to the early two thousands but this is score metrics. It's the system that the legendary sports better John Dora has used propel himself under a multi million dollar lifestyle in record time. So you're talking about last year's baseball season score metrics produced a two hundred seventeen percent gain a back tested results of the members only alert system based purely office. That if you look at that, there are compounded Roi last four years six, thousand, seven, hundred, ninety, six percent. So I just wanted to throw that out there before I bring up John Because. That's about the all the stats I know but the to get access and start placing your high probability bets today go to sports trading systems, dot com slash podcast at sports trading systems, dot com slash podcast. Now can actually bring John on introduce him to you I've got questions I know you got some for me to John First of all welcome. Great to have you here you you do so much more than just baseball but What was the the I guess the impetus to make you a sports guy in general where where GonNa. That start well look I've always been a huge sports fan I I played sports when I was younger. I was I was okay at it for awhile blew my knee always had this like WanNa be sports type of relationship with my life actually I went to school to be broadcast or just like you and I took I took a left turn because I needed a new the money I feel like it almost like, oh, it's weird story but I needed the money I was someone's at eight. If you really want to be a radio DJ early, want to be a sportscaster unity on the microphone you learn how to do this. So ended up working in strip clubs for about eighteen years. I was a strip club Dj. After that, I bought sports bars I had owned like three sports bars. I became super entrenched in like the sports industry again and a few years ago on a whim after I lost a bunch of money in two, thousand, eight, eight during the housing crash. I decided and you knew way to invest I need something different and a Guy I knew that was. A customer. My Bar was watching a game. He was excited about the game I said to you have money on the game in he said Yeah I said, well, you know sometimes you win sometimes you lose and he said I never lose I'm an investor and he had this whole story about how he was investing in Sports. He was really drunk by the way. and. The story was was complete nonsense but does that walked away I started to realize that the way I used to invest in stocks and WED investment property before two thousand and eight was very similar. What sports ads I just followed like back tested analytics so for an example, you can go back ten years. You look at the price of a stock you see when the stock goes up seamless dot goes down you can work this a works really well unlike the quantities industries and stuff like that. So I counted to developed a system that took me a few years. I'M NOT GONNA GONNA lie I fell down a few times on the way I developed a system that allows me to trade sports the same way that other people trade stocks, and that's what I do know a really interesting and I so the sports that you're currently trading I mean obviously is a baseball podcast but what's the This thing. Well so I trade, I trade the three big sports I played baseball basketball and I trade football. Now, I trade those because those are my interests to be quite honest with you but what I've learned and I and I really really learned this just recently to I always thought this work for anything but I throughout the when the pandemic hitting all sports. Stopped I needed something to do. So I actually developed the system that I used to the NFL draft using back the data, use it for the NFL draft we did a I sent it out to all my my my newsletter members. We made one hundred and fifteen percents. The night of a draft we break things up into the multiple systems diversified. You'd allocations. So it's a little complicated, but it's it's pretty easy to teach people. and. Made money from a couple of events. So made like mainly trade the big three sports and again I trade the because I love Them I. I was thinking about doing a European soccer thing I really just. Want to be. A jerk. They tell authors write about what you know. Right I mean so. The same thing here John doerr visiting with us they call him the sports. Trader website is sports trading systems, dot Com sports with an S. trading systems dot com. Real Quick John Because we don't have you too much longer. How can the people listening to this learn more what? What's the next step? So you can do several things you can go to sports systems, dot com slash podcast, which is a special Europe we set up just for you.

Wait on the my last question for you is because I'm actually looking you on zoom that a sledge hammer over your your ear what is on that shelf behind you? Oh, this is Don't ERC. Oh Hammer of thor. Floor it was giving to me as a gift. I should poke somebody that somebody I really love this thing, and then it showed up one day. So Nice gift like two hundred, Fifty Bucks while idea having having done the mets games for awhile while right into going but. While I was gonNA tell you. It actually cost you more because you don't know this but you're talking to me now and I'm in Thailand. So it's actually section three am here. Well, we could have done this at a totally different time. You Know I. Up to and every I thought you'd be PJ's or whatnot although what you're wearing bottom might maybe I should not ask you I just have a shirt on that's. What I'd be doing the same thing. Hey. You can actually help me out. We're going GONNA. Make a little transition here a guy that to to purdue. And, it really that's a you know the drew brees school right I mean there's ballplayers came out of their Kevin. Pilecki is rick backup catcher. He is our last scheduled interview This podcast I gotta go ahead and pitch to that interview right now Do you have any any purdue inside or any drew brees insight that can can make this a segue or is that out there? Oh I. Don't actually I wish you had told me before we started out with a look quick drew drew brees, ins I I I messed stop. Yeah. Blame Myself I mean, you're the Guy Okay am to do this. But anyway, John Door with a sports trading systems, dot com do check it out. It's really really interesting I without any further ado let me take you back to spring training. Here's a purdue boilermaker Gavin you ended up at purdue where else might you have gone picked produce what was pretty easy when it all came down to it my parents were. Die Hard Fan girl watching drew brees going to football games as a kid. So when I got a call from them, decision was easy. You know for me but I mean I did explore other options to make sure I was you know I did do that and to do my homework. So it was like between there I took tie you you know Michigan State was up there and then Louisville went to went to a trip to Louisville and ultimately. Decided to produce the best fit for me. You just drew a concentric circle about one hundred and fifty miles around where you grew up. So are you are you a homebody? Did you consider yourself that No I wouldn't say that I li- I live in Arizona now. I got out of the Mid West I got out of there. I couldn't do the winners anymore. So we we moved out there and sixteen and Yeah we love it out there. So I'm out of those I'm doing that cold weather. I I know I just remember you telling me when you were at purdue viewer enough of a baseball Geek that it wasn't just playing. You would go occasionally to Wrigley check that out tell me about sitting in the bleachers and how awful he to opposing players yeah. We there was one time in particularly took like a like a party bus deal. There was some boys in college. It was when someone with. Baseball scene still going on but school was out we took a took one of those buses up for game. It's out in the Outfield left-center bleachers and we're underwear harass Marlon Byrd so hard and the first first inning we've got kicked out of the bleachers. And we were on just about making a top ten finale. you know had a couple of cocktails and US but we're having a good time ended up making a top ten player that day you know made a heck of a diving play looked up and gave us a point where all you know. We're all going nuts but we had a good a good time there and I mean, even before that growing up as a kid, my dad would always take me my brother and my mom, would we go up there go to regularly and in A cubs fan. So it's always special for me to go back there, and now I get to play and You know just as a kid it brings back a lot of show going on sell crazy. This game is you end up being in a major league clubhouse with Marlon Byrd just years later that's crazy. Yeah. Crazy to come full circle times but you know at the time obviously, not even thinking about it it's It's wild but you know the the journey has been great up to this point. So you know who? Who knows what else I'd harassed. Real quick have now that you've kind of gone away from the the bad boy image your family man you gotTa Kid. I tell me what it's like, being, Daddy. The best thing in the world I know talking about perspective I think Lysol perspective and you know. Ever. Since he's been born and it just reassures that you know this is just a game that we play granted. There's a lot of hard work and you know stuff that goes into it and I'm the biggest competitor anybody. But you know at the end of the day whether four over four when I go home and see the smile on his face and you don't get to spend time with my wife it's You know the best join the world. So I love every day. And you know he he pushed me to be better. You know not only as a baseball player just being a better person better a better father. So it's a it's been a lot of fun so far can't wait for you know a lot of more a lot more memories. Yeah.

We did a little sub especially for you know a new segment. We're calling cartoon confidential. We're you're going to dive into PAPA trouble. Give it a really really hard. Look No mercy but I some very hot off the presses trending news after this. You need to hear this carry all right. I love lady sweet lady sweet.

I honestly don't think Kerry checkout lady sweet on shop DOT SCARY MOMMY DOT COM and while you're doing that don't forget to put in Promo. Code speaks fifteen for fifteen percent off. I now we all I'll have some awareness of the devastating effects of Hurricane Doreen which was a category five storm on the islands of the Bahamas. Today we have a very special guest to speak to us about what people are are facing as they begin to rebuild and how he can help Sakir. Dorset is a filmmaker and a television producer. She was born in the Bahamas and has lived in Brooklyn for ten years and so I thank you so much care for joining us juice Akia. Thank you guys for having me. you know it's a really tough time but you know when. I was growing up. one of the things that we always had was it's better in the Bahamas. That was our tagline. The Bahamas is a place of tourism if you've been on vacation if you've seen the Atlanta's ads you know that's what it's it's all about and so this devastation avocado and Grand Bahama is really affecting not only people's lies with people what the economy of the Bahamas a hold old and you know when you look at what's happened there. You've have demanded. Devastation is catastrophic. You know people the tire towns have been wiped out out. flooding has happen. People's homes have been wiped out. People's livelihoods have been wiped out and it's hard to kind of imagine people trying to rebuild build from nothing you know the question is how do you rebuild from nothing and so it's GonNa take a lot of support. The amount of evacuations that have have to happen and where will people go from there. It's quite it's quite an enormous effort. Can you tell us a little bit about growing up in the Bahamas and you know kind of what you cherish most about it it you know. I think one of things that I love is that it's very neighborhood family. Feel you know that's something that I carried with me. When I came to the United States it was actually a little shocking to know that you could say good morning to someone and they're not going to say good morning back because that's like a rule you go you say good morning that whole feel of the neighborhood and people being concerned about each other and being very proud of the island maybe we're just naturally friendly leading up to the Harkin. I was very anxious of course because we didn't know if it was gonna hit. NASA which is the main island where Atlanta's and then it swerved and it went to to Freeport and that's where my aunt lives and so I was very concerned with her. I think I spoke with her and then on what's up and she was like yeah. We're going to be fine. We're in the hurricane to worry. Korea have my windows battened up and I'll be okay and then that's it and then the reports started coming the CNN reports and everybody and I was like Oh my God. This storm is worse than we expected and I couldn't get in contact with her for a while. So I really yeah like was really concerned. Finally she broke through and she told me her story and I am. I'll just paraphrase it. She was telling me she was in her house. The waters rose and they realized they needed to get out of the House House. For some reason my aunt a little bit my thought she was super woman and she would just stay on his desk on the porch and she'd be fine until the waters rose up to the desk and our friends. Luckily came back for her and then they were able to get away and find this kind of almost scene out of a movie this one light in the distance that got to go to and find shelter because there was this bright. Led Lights. She says that she saw and they allowed them to come inside. They fed them breakfast so this is like the hospitality of the Bahamas calm in the storm. You know you can't turn anyone away. Yeah a lot of people did not survive. I think one of the side is the most heartbreaking stories I heard is from an area that it was a little poorer where a man and his son were holding onto a piece of wood in the water and the wave washed over them and unfortunately his son was washed away in the way that he could not hold onto him and so you just see he said just watch my son going away from me and just yelling daddy daddy and there was nothing that he could do my God so you know you have those types of stories that you just like. PEOP- some people survived and they can rebuild bill but other people have not survived so could you tell us a little bit about what we can be doing to help without a shadow of a doubt tourism is the number one way the Bahamas makes money and so everybody is very confused about hurricane during came to the Bahamas and they're like it's wiped out right the all of the islands of the Bahamas islands so they're multiple multiple. There are many islands you can still visit for tourism and it's important that you support in terms of tourism because it feeds into the entirety of the right and the economy definitely tourism is the way that we will restore you can give money and there's numerous charities. There's a charity call head knowles that is one that people are really pushing toward one of the ones that I am giving to personally is the Bahamas Red Cross they have set up an Amazon list that they continuing to update and so you go to the Amazon list and you can buy items from that list tiny. Url Dot com slash help for Bahamas. I strongly urge our listeners if you are of the ability donate now and then again maybe donate later because this is a this is not a sprint. This is a marathon you know. I'm glad you said that that idea of the marathon because of course when if something happens you donate right away yeah but it's almost like a subscription plan yeah yeah it's almost as if that's why they have this thing called. Patriot where people are donating knitting every month to you because you do need the resources to sustain the rebuilding efforts and I know a lot of you know we talk about so much the squad encourage your squad to give give in you know. Tell your friend about it. You know this is a time that you can gather your squad do something I know. People have done relief efforts together her where they go to places and they rebuild. You know look up habitat for humanity see what they're doing. Get Your group together. You know and really encourage each other as well L. to give. Thank you so so much for taking the time to speak with US Akia. It's always important. I think to realize how personal this is yeah yeah. It's not just someplace far away. That's having something horrible. Happy absolutely that these things happen can happen to any of and that to make it personal to say that this could happen to you and your child. This could be your aunt. This could be your grandmother. We're going to have links up to the red crosses. Amazon page included in this episode's description so for those who would like to help them buy supplies. Please make sure to check it out. Please tell your family that we are thinking about them. I mean one thing we know is that the people are strong long and I know that they are resilient and they appreciate any amount of help that comes their way and so I thank you for having me today. Thank you so much. We are talking about the g word the G Spot I. I don't even remember what that was like. No I wish we're talking about guilt guilt guilt and more guilt nothing nothing nothing but guilt. I'm Jewish and I'm a mom. I am the human embodiment embodiment of guilt. I'm Catholic Irish well former Catholic Irish Italian. I don't know the go listen. We all have that were not alone. It's a mom thing scary. Mommy posted an article about a working mom whose son said that he didn't know her because he never sees her. I know this. The articles in the article is called. My son showed me my biggest fear as a working mom. If you haven't read it check it out in the article basically like the mom is torn because her older daughter she had promised to take her older daughter out to like a secret for sale in the sun doesn't WanNa come and she's like come on and she was wanting to spend time with her. Come on you've got to go to the mall with us but also she had things to do right. That's what happens in life. You've things you need to get done. Bring your kid. He was all going to Gutu opinions store. I don't think he said Panties but basically that was what he that was the Gesta better so they got in a fight in the car and the mom did which I actually really love this. She's like listen. She's all going to a dark place. Let's stop for a moment and go around and say what we each like most about each other what we love most about each other right and when it got to him. He couldn't think of anything that he loved right. It was my silent and she was like are you kidding me. Come on like trying to make a joke of it even though it stung. I'm not I one but she really thought maybe he was just kind of being a deck or whatever and he very lane. Lee said I spend most of my time with the the nanny or grandma and I don't see you enough to know what I like. What I love about you this article okay so firstly I mean my my first thought is these are a maybe he was just being a little shit and he just fighting what I and he was speaking from a place of anger but I had to tell you I actually texted my mom. This article will and I said I don't remember ever feeling like this and you did work. So how. How did you manage that. She has not responded to me at because she's bad at texting but I genuinely want to know because my mom worked both my parents worked and never in my life felt like I don't know Oh them and I don't want to say anything about this mother because this is a very vulnerable post and I am not coming at all from a place of judgment because I would feel terrible. She's the breadwinner to. It's it's a hard. It's a hard place. He's totally but I even have time today. I'm gone the whole day and had been texting Li. I wrote a note. I'm like probably MIGRA managing him not probably micromanaging but I feel horrible if she didn't sleep. Well should wasn't feeling well. I feel horrible being here. I get that and I I don't I feel for you. I'm in the same boat. I I understand but I will say you know a few weeks ago month ago. I was having a really hard time handling this working mom thing because Sebastian was it's starting to act like he really didn't like me and I took my instagram stories and was like hey you know working moms. How do you handle this and and a single childless. Male friend of mine messaged me and said you know you're showing your son. What's a strong woman. Is Somebody who works not not just to make money but to be creatively fulfilled to work towards their goals. I think there's a lot of truth to that statement because I had goals that I was working towards before session was even thought in my mind becoming a mother doesn't then mean that you are no longer a human being with your own own aspiration. I guess my only issue with that is that we always talk whenever we talk about the working mom as like. It's a good thing to be a working mom because you're you're showing your kid. You're strong wise a working mom stronger than the stay at home I don't. I don't think that that's the case. I don't think that working makes you stronger. I think people say say that you're strong. When you're a working mom because of this precise reason and you feel so bad leaving your and maybe you don't I mean I'm just talking for the people. Who Do you feel bad leaving their kids 'cause. I'm sure there are moms out there that are like thank God. I'm Outta. Here's love that show working mums. I Yeah I saw the first season fine like that show. I I felt I hate to see I overuse this word. I felt really seen yet with only mom's perspectives lutely. I felt that was really good like I said my hi mom worked. I still didn't feel like she was not emotionally present for me. I still didn't feel like she wasn't in my on my team. If I had an issue if I needed to be he really parented. My mom was still present. That's stance. He's were Astra because my mom worked and I never taking care of. My Mom knew everything. Motion needs aides or whatever so much so when I was doing like when when I was smoking at sixteen years old in alleyways in hoboken my mom somehow found a way to be in that alleyway and find I mean tarnish me multiple times so you know like a tracker on you swear to God. They must have chipped me as a child. I I saw black near episode. It did not end well. All I'm saying is those things. Don't go have to go hand in hand just like being a stay at home. MOM doesn't mean you're week being a working. Mom doesn't mean that you're better none of those. It's all what you make of the situation. You're in it's true and that's life right because you know for a second. I thought we were we were going to get in a fistfight per second and this is like my daughter just yes. You'll never gas gasol did on the toilet the other thing. I guess you probably have a drinking game about it. No I actually really good Oh. That's surprising thank you read the anyway. You're a great multitasker on that toilet you read the entire book on the toilet was a really good page. Turner. It was fun to read need. We'll tell me which one is it. I mean listen not that. I have time to read it because the minute I start reading. I just fall asleep anyway. What was the book. It's called the dad book troops hacks and data's actually. I'm not a dad I know but it's still great read and it gives you a peek into the other side. That could be like a great book for Man Exactly. It's the perfect book for the Dad who likes to laugh here ready picture me in Times Square in a t shirt. Does Li like to laugh. I gotta see the show up to you. Like comedy looks comedy and he likes to laugh. Obviously he's with me and I'm just a joke. If you didn't know the dad is a counterpart to scary mommy it's the number one media and entertainment brand for DADS and this book is packed with Popular Joke from the dad new never before seen content and it's almost small enough have to fit into a lease cargo short pockets. Lee does not wear cargo shorts. He wears the spoke custom-made Japanese Taylor. Oh well then he. It's almost small enough to fit into spilt custom Japanese Pam. If you've got a dad in your life or you just want to peek into the other side you can find the dad book on on Amazon. Just look it up the dead book all right so we are back with our our favorite our queen original Gangsta. Oh Gee Gitte mom no g Bob. I'm so happy to be here. We have an important and topic to talk to you about. We talk about all the time between the two of US yeah. It's a constant mom guilt or they don't you love it. I hate it well. What is your biggest. What personally what is your biggest mom guilt yelling yelling yelling now that there I have two boys. They're constantly fighting etta. Mike really late at night when you're laying in bed and you're going over your day and the nats and I feel guilty you guys are still early early. Yeah for you guys my only advice to you would be give yourself a break go. They're not going to remember when they're this little they're just not so. Let's talk about guilt in the school zone. We're getting there. There's a lot of MOMS that are there right now. What do you think regarding school. Is the biggest source of guilt. We talked about an article where a mom and her son her son basically. She's a working mom very demanding job a lot like you. I would imagine and her son said you know honestly mom. I feel like I just don't know you. He meant he couldn't think of one thing you loved about her. Be Enough yeah which is like horrible right right. You're you know you're working all the time but you're still you still find time to be present for your kids. Do you find something like this even like. Do you see that for see that even being in an issue for you. You know that's tough. I guess it depends on your job. I don't over schedule my kids. They don't do a lot of things things. I do that mainly because they hate sports but also because I just need the time with them yeah so I don't necessarily like we have lazy Sunday's Lazy Sunday where we sit around and hang out and you know where together they like it. I do try to have dinner dinner on the weekends together. I'm really not there during the week for dinner. yeah. I mean you do feel guilty by one on the other day was crying and he said what he said. I I forgot what triggered him but he was basically like you work all the time and I never get to see you know. Oh my God my heart all the kids get a memo that says that's the thing that's really gonNa tear your mom's heart out right there right and because they're older now and they get it right like the right kind of understand what's going on and they see other. MOMS comes in there a little bit more into like what's who's where and you know they get shit about not being able to make all the school things no because because I do have the job where I can. You know leave late. Try Go in late. Leave early work from home. I'm there more now. I had works previously at a corporate network where I like. It wasn't like that so it was different this now. I think that they see it and if if I don't I I have my parents go right so there's a grandparent important person. It's not like they're being left exactly exactly. Can we talk about school lunch. Which I was just GonNa say Lunch Gill well. I specifically want to talk about instagram worthy school lunch. Which is we've all seen being this frigging post which is the Bento box with little cheese slices cut into fish and the sandwiches cut into a. I don't know other fish that plaguing. I've never been good at plating matter strongest but like who is this thing Duke. MOMS feel guilty for not making a lunch. That's worthy of being instagram'd. I I don't care lives unless she enjoys it needs it. They're totally. Oh my God I yesterday I was making making sandwiches and like squeezed Mayo and then you take a nice guy around enough around through through the meat on it through it together and do it. You know what I did that. I drew a note in there yeah. My mom used to write little no. That's not all the time but she knew I used to get really stressed out. I was a bad test taker her so I would really on days of tests like all that I was. I asked my mom you strike me a little nancy ice that goes along who like I might not awash rapes but did you feel guilt about whether your food is healthy that you're packing for your kids like yes well. I will say I and just go through periods where all he wants to eat or cold fish. I can't get him to eat anything else and I feel a lot of guilt about it because it's like I'm trying to get this kid some nutrients and he's not child eats. Only goldfish is their poop orange. No firm now okay so my oldest is pretty independent. I might go I go downstairs and he made himself off a bowl of cereal at like five. I'm like okay you can write. He's nine. Your oldest son is GonNa make a great partner for something which is like I'm kind of. I like my partner. That'd be very self sufficient. We hang out like I feel like high. That's from years of ignoring my kids really guilty about it now but the end yeah yeah I can tell you it only matters if they're happy and healthy that is it if they don't eat you know a vegetable Chabad for the week. What can you do like it goes on. Is that how you manage the mom guilt like you're like. I'm going to assess my child's happiness and if my kids happy I'm going to not let that Gal L. Run me is that is that like one x I try. I think that like obviously you don't where kids have feel like he's entitled and spoiled and all this stuff you want them to be humble and appreciative but I do feel. We had a really bad year. When my son he has a learning disability and he was having a hard time and he was really depressed. One year like I did not know what to talk about. Mom Guilt like I did not know how to help this child that that's gotta be. He cried every day going to school and then you feel guilty because you don't want annoyed by like I was mad by it. I was like I'd I and then I'd walk away and he'd be crying and then I'd be upset and then he the teacher would have to come and escort him in and it was just really hard a hard yeah and it got to be to the point where you kind of have to give everybody a break. You know like you can't feel guilt. Kazan hill feel guilt and yeah. I think I was making him feel guilty because I'm like you know. You can't do this every morning. You can't cry. We can't start the day like that. I just think it was the Jewish on everybody him me. You know the family is brother like everybody needs a good fart joke just right. That's cut cut cut. Cut the cheese cheese. You just have to give everybody a break at some point and then just kind of go from there. Yes reset and say all right. How do you do over her. You're because that's my resetting general. It starts with you like just being like I'm not GonNa do with this week. I'm not gonNA feel guilty. I mean what do you feel Sebastian. What is is going on. What do you feel so guilty about. I mean right now. I'm feeling a lot better. When it really was an issue. My my main concern was like he was acting like he didn't don't like me like he wanted nothing to do with me. He I would ask you know like I would come home and want to give him a hug and it'd be like no. He just didn't like me so I just felt like Oh. Wow did getting a job that I've always wanted like really screw up my son that much and then long story short. He ended up being very sick. nothing life threatening just like a bad stomach issue and we were in the hospital and all he did was hugged me. All he wanted was mom the entire time and I feel like that recenter breaker. Nice hospital reset. Everything and I didn't do anything except I was there for my kid but that's that's my concern and I also knew as an adult like. Are you really going to let the feelings of a two year. Olds dictate whether you go and have a job or more like are you going to go about things and let him figure it out and realize like MOMS MOMS still here for me eighty percent of the time that's I just I I feel like in general resetting like not specifically in the subject. resetting is very difficult like stepping away stepping outside of an issue and saying okay this is that's not happening anymore and I'm taking a different approach because you get so you almost have blinders on right like you. Don't even realize it's happening right. I think it starts a little bit every day. Yeah a little bit every day. It's like today. I'm not going to feel guilty about leaving for an hour to get a manicure. I'm just GONNA do it. I WanNa make it and everyone donald survivor. I'm not gonNA feel guilty about going to work and doing something. That makes me happy. He's to you know he'll definitely he'll never remember right and they do adapt yeah. My kids know now especially with my job. I'm working and you know sometimes. It's a problem and we'll talk about it and then I buy them something on Amazon and everyone's really there's comecon. You're good well. Thank you so much because I feel like like this is a subject. Every single mom can relate to in one way whether they're little older whatever it is we all kind of deal this universal contact. I'm so programmed for guilt that I feel guilty that we took you away from your job to come talk to us. I don't love it fantastic. Just remember. You'RE GONNA fail a little bit every day but you'll hopefully have a lot of wins. You know Oh that's a really great perspective. I looked at that too except it's very long. I know you'll you'll fail a little but when a lot yeah drop in that knowledge all this shit gotta gotTa do it. We Love you o Jima. So have you guys. Thanks for coming coming.

I'm really excited because there's a new show on Fox called Million Dollar Beach House, it premieres August twenty six season one has six episodes. So they did this similar to selling sunset where you're going to see tranches of shows seasons one two and three, and it looks really good. It's basically the selling sunset but on the east coast and it set in the hamptons which I like because after so many seasons of million dollar listing New, York, a I kind of feel like. We've been there done that and be now that Vida's hit. So many people are leaving in going to the suburbs I. Think it's just an interesting look. Of course, this was filmed before Kovac's but the reality is a lot of people are leaving New York City in La. Now, to move into the suburbs I am thinking as I, read all this coverage how will that change the dynamics of the suburbs and will it make show set in the suburbs even more interesting because of the population growth and the dynamics of city people that are suddenly immersed in suburbia. So I am really excited for this. And the great thing is I posted it that the show's coming out in Jen who lives in the Hamptons reached out to me and said, one of the cast members coach, my son's baseball team. Now I've looked him up and he looks quite young I don't think he's married and has children. So right off the Bat I'm like. Well, this guy seems like a nice guy, right because he coaches kids baseball and I reached out to him and he said that he had been filming the show Spring and summer so he would show up. From set in this power sued because they all dress up to sell condos and houses. And then switch into his coaching uniform so have to say. I'm pretty interested in the sky seems like an like a hardworking nice, guy. Suggest no that that's an Aq- working on that. The other funny thing about this real estate show is that because of quarantine my eight almost nine year old son has become obsessed with real estate looking at real estate websites number one he's sick of our house because he feels like it's too small for our big family which I totally get. But because of quarantine, these kids are like researching geniuses. And I have to laugh because for some reason, even though I live in southern California, he's become obsessed with specifically of not even kidding you. The Real Estate Margaret in the Hamptons unlike he must have read somewhere that there was a youtuber that live there because he will show me the youtube pages of people that are super successful. He gives me statistics on how much money they make previews like we're creating monsters these quarantines so. Anyway I have feeling he's going to wash the show with me I. Don't know how. How much the melodrama will be but I have to say, my son is going to be amped on the show so. The bunch of young cast members to be in about like. Late Twenties Early Thirties GB, of course, the power suits you've got Michael who used to be a hugely successful International Model I. Love It. When people say that unlike I gotTa, see the receipts but. He did model for Calvin Klein Doce Gabbana Armani diesel jeans, Frankie Morello and Alexander McQueen. So he sort of like the Luke of Summer House except loop doesn't seem to really work but I'm kind of interested in that this guy. Is Somebody who previously lived in Manhattan before moving out to the Hamptons and created lifestyle and real estate magazine Hampton spectators. So why is that great because he's going to know everybody he's going to be the person on the show is going to give us the gossip about who slept with who grew up where those are the stories than on interested in now that the city dwellers have moved into the suburbs. Are you as. Our. Our how how much is your currency now like you were a big deal in in the city, but you would suburbs where it's more important like who you grew up with what school that you went to in Suburbia I don't know I just think that there's going to be a whole new fun dynamic. Now, the people are moving into the suburbs. So anyway. Watch that show Million Dollar Beach House that's going to be our been showed this week real housewives of New York. The just announced that she's leaving the show I am not surprised. I saw that coming I'm happy to tell you there will be new people on the show next season and I think it's going to have a much lighter feel to the show. This episode really excited about there's a great new show on HBO MAX HP. Amax is so many great shows and they will continue to have great shows. Streaming media really is kicking some serious, ass. So this great show is called single town and I found it and I've been watching it and it's sort of like island but better. So he's excited to talk to David Williams, he's executive producer of single town. So basically, this is the promised you've got five couples they pressed pause in the relationship and they spend what they call summer. So a couple of weeks living in London, they are separated into two flats. In the funny thing is they're all these two groups of people are in the same building but have no idea at first. So one is on the riverside. Decide, and so they move into these luxury apartments with other people and they have pictures huge canvas photos of their axes on the wall so. As they live in this flat, they bring people into date them. So they're not really dating each other they could if they wanted to but it's this experiment of like, okay. You're going to have these roommates sort of like the real world who are like your compatriots, and then we bring in people that are outsiders to see if there's better matches for you than the person that. Happens to live on the other side of the building and is experiencing the same thing you did. So you're meeting somebody you know like I kind of like you I'm into you. But then of course, my ex's face is on a huge canvas right in front of us. So it's all these interesting dynamics within the group within the axis and then it set in fantastic city of London. I like to see people dating who are not on a beach because I'm worried that they have starved themselves for weeks to be on television that they're on like too much adderall that their hair extensions are falling out the spray tans going to go away soon, their nails are beginning to fall off. And so you know the Bachelor Paradise and the Love Islands like they're great. But I also like to see somebody living in a city like is this a little bit more realistic? CAST is young, which is great because they make horrible choices. And, they have made themselves believe that at the ages of Twenty One and twenty three that they have searched the entire world to find the right person and that it could be acts who they. They can acknowledged they've zero trust and faith in because they've cheated on them twelve times. So it's the makings of a great situation and the best part is. The hosts are really funny and they're not no they're. They're really funny because they're not know it alls. They are they're not sanctimonious. They're like, well, here we are. We think this show is genius working to be laughing the whole time they're going to they're asking us to impart or wisdom which that of which we have zero but this is going to be funny. So I think you're gonNA really like it. I asked Lisa Riley from one funny mommy. She's lives on Staten Island and she's absolutely hilarious and so I wanted to check in with her because I know that she loves the real housewives. So we go through Potomac neutral. And WHO ARE NEW JERSEY POTOMAC AND New York. Hello and I get her insight, which is always hilarious. By the way, she told me that everybody in Staten, island knows each other and all those people that are in reality shows the mob wives Eremita from HGTV, Pete? Davidson Jersey shore they all know each other like she runs into them at CVS and everything. So that's pretty funny. So I'm really excited about this episode and so here we go. Single town on Hbo Max begins with a unique Andy. So they're five couples that press pause on the relationships and these spend one incredible summer living their best single lives in the city. Of London, the newly separated couples and their four new flatmates move into these two luxury apartments which to their surprise are located in the same exact building and come with a celebrity mentor. So supported by their mentors matchmaking skills, the SINGLETON's embark on this indulgent summer full of money can't. Buy Exclusive, dates out of this world party's unforgettable experiences, and at the end of each week, the couples meet to take part in this ceremony to decide whether or not. They're going to reunite, lead the shows a couple or stay single and remain in single town. It's a really clever show it set in London, which is one of the best cities in the world and I'm so excited to tell you. I have executive producer David Williams joining me welcome to the show. Hi Kate, thank you for having a really nice to say hello and yes great to talk and and shaft about the. Thank you. First of all the best part of the show I have to say are the host unlike a lot of television shows I feel like most of the host up and they're sort of sanctimonious. And these two are really funny. They kind of own it through like I don't really know what I'm talking about, but this is going to be a fun ride. Let's let's start with concept and then get into the casting and where you found these great hosts. I'm. You've pinpointed for me as well. One of my favorite parts about show, which is which was the host, but actually rolled in that as you've said, slightly different role for the hug which. Hopefully something that south a bit more organic, but it came out. You know the development of the show really it. A wall to show necessarily reimagined coming hosts host draw the involved in the get go but it felt as if there was an opportunity here, the somebody to really ask for the show but in a in a really. I think surprising in the original way. But yes, he came out of this great starting points the show which was You know we have in the UK is within the US how brilliant dating shows we tend to begin with. Ten sexy singles into Paradise, island would waste to fall in love I'm that brilliant and work on on what's the and and they were all white the place. But we wanted if we could get some of the you know those mainstays of what people love about the dating show about first connections and chemistry and and and heartache, and all of those how really different starting points and with it in truth just frame those moments that. The killers dating shows, but in a very different way because in single town, these newly hatched singles who up until coming on the show were in committed relationships. So everything from that point, they go onto the single journey full away with some emotional currency because these people have come into these protests stats. Apart from their partner for the first time and that going through it all while reflecting back on on their part, their own walk, it says about their relationship. So hopefully, we get all of those kind of classic tropes of the dating show but through a really really distinctive and different powerful prism, which is dishonesty of a relationship relationships tobacco couple of designing for the benefit of their relationship whether it's to say. Quiet Rawlinson, we are better off Paul or in a different kind of relationship. That aren't. GonNa, prove to me that we are perfect for each other I'm GonNa come back together strong together at the end of the experiments and we hope to have all the greatest bits of the dating show. But with much backwards from the very unique starting point that you described, which is the breakup. Now. Many of the cast are quite young and some of them crack me up because they're like, well, we've been together for seven and a half years and Mike you're twenty three years old like you started dating when you were like twelve they have really intertwined back stories because they've known each other for a while they all have trust issues and then you put them in these luxury apartments and what always continues to surprise me about the show and this is coming as an American watching a show with people that are. British is how civilized they are because if you had an American show with people that young who've been together that long. And, they're all obviously at that coming of age time I feel like there would have been more fighting and disrespect but everyone seems to be supportive of one another like how did you find this cast as? I don't know how you did it but you found people that are very interesting very attractive. The seemed to be very open minded about love and relationships and seem so civilized. y'All. Well. I don't know if it's always a trait that the the people from the UK young people are always. With but that's really nice to hear I think it. Is it was down to I, was really. Means when we started to Casper, show that the the couples would ruin couples. So yes, they are young that you been point grown particular couple and you know they they had only ever really been with each other they were childhood we are. Being scheduled for some, you know seven years ready but I would so determine that these these couples they were the start. Would genuine, and because of that was real in a real jeopardy in then taking part in the program that I think they were as a result is you said really respectful of each other incentive erects partner as they were Michelle and also you know could empathize very readily. With how everybody else in their apartments and we flatmates were feeling and then finding the process because you know it won't really quite an undertaking for these people to a uncoupled. Be You know just be with that? who was often that best friend because and then think about actually meeting people and opening themselves up. It was really quite now we. Expected it the people and I think they very quickly fell into a lovely support network really with each other and say were respectful of wash everybody was giving because probably. And feeding themselves. I think for anybody that kind of looks back to those those college age years between. Eighteen and twenty four. This is a great show because it reminds you of those first relationships that you have that really kind of set your course for love. So for that, I really like to now some of the accents are quite interesting. One couple mentioned there from Essex. What are where are all of these CAST members from? Seventy day are they are indeed wine to spreads around the UK we such small country still you know possess them in you know pretty dynamic different accents within the master of a few hundred miles geographically. So we have people from go pretty much the full corners of of England's really and you know where we did guessing mixture, which is what we wanted and. We also that the cast that we had on this show because of the particular. And into because it wasn't another show that on a beach where everybody cools with needing to look amazing in their swimwear from. The very first rain to the Sonali. We wanted to have a slot Hebrew the cast. Paw? Geographic you know Paul into of same sex couples well of cool and under halfway. Through the Pallet hopefully, you know even move people could kind of identifying with somebody you know. And I hope again, felt something quite quite fresh for for you know extensively, what was it dating show that there was really quite the pool range of coin and body shapes and sexuality all in there as well. I'm with it just the real. Toll. Testing stories really different stories depending on. The question that each couple went into the process wanting institute really vary between you know you all the only because only date. Is that somebody out that back there I never know what it's like to date someone else to you know I think is really committed relationship I. Think you all the walks me but something is holding me back and this is actually the couple that without getting too many spoilers leave the question about commitment and and just coming time out of the sewing. Yes I'm GonNa really going for this and take the. Next level so I think not diverse. The again was really keen to the show and of course just. CARE. Again this show is really clever. It's really funny. It's very tongue in cheek The cast is is very diverse. It's young it's fresh it's fun. You're going to find yourself daydreaming about planning a trip to London after watching this lutely I love the show I watch a ton of shows I really liked it i. think this is really well done tell everybody where they can also catch episodes of the show. Well it is HBO cake The we really really feels like a great for that brand and obstacle really intertwined. got that sense of mischief I think around it which feels when. It was on HBO. And all of the episodes are fifteen episodes, Saturn the series. All ready meet us now so So that's great to hear. Thank you a great binge show very well done. Thank you, David. Brilliant.

Mommy on Instagram is so funny and I had to ask her about one of her favorite things to watch which is the real housewives Lisa. Welcome to the show. Hi How. Are you? Good. I've got to know what you think this morning just came out that derivative medley is leaving real housewives. Of New York. She says what a journey this has been I've laughed and cried and tried to make it nice. But all things must come to an end. This was a great outlet for me to heal when my late husband Richard Castaway, I've met so many interesting people and learn so much about myself about life about women. Along the way so she is not coming back. She says to my classmates for Thanks for the Ride Bravo. I wish you health happiness and success what a ride unforgettable Andy Cohen said. So what do you think about D- ARINDA leaving row house is a New York. I I mean. I feel like there's a back story I. Feel like we gotta take a little deeper for the back story because I feel like there's something else Hans they must. I'm making up a whole story. I'm just GONNA go but. I feel like there's more to the story because you don't just exit like that because why not? You know what? I mean Yeah I love how I love. You know the character she is on the show I. Love It. I just feel like Moby Dick. We've got gotTA figure it out. Do you think that she was let go or do you think it was a this was her choice now I think something happened Oh. Totally okay we'll. What I've been told is that there are some new people coming next season some fresh faces it's going to be the best season ever. So with that people have to go out as you're thinking, they gave her the boot a cheesy when like a lady I get it I. It is okay. I think the most of them almost all of them never leave by their own choice. I mean you make a ton of money you get all this attention. In Cleveland Yeah I think for a them it's layer. That's the one thing I've never been able to have his fame like I've had the nice car, the Nice. House. But that's what I want and I think it's like a drug to them the fame that they need attention all the time, which is why you see people like the ones that left real house of Orange. County who left the show? Who WanNa do every interview that comes their way because. They missed the attention that comes with it. So I'm assuming it's going to be a real hard thing for her to leave behind. Okay. Now, we can make up a whole new thing that's probably what it is. We're going to stick with that one. That's you're probably right that's probably exactly what she's exiting like a lady. All right. I'll go with it. That sounds good. So what do you think about the US far? Did you like Leah as a new housewife? Who I like again I call I like yeah I mean I like Washington's I love the reality shows I love him I do I love all of it. I love watching it. I feel like it's real. I just love it I like her yeah, I like the move I really do it. On a reality, show that I don't like. The whole plot ya I like the whole plot like the hope beam of it. 'cause when you watch it and I feel like it is real life but it's not realize you got it ahead to take it. You know what? I mean. So of all the housewives in New, York who is most like the people that you know they are. A richer person. I. Know. Like when I know I, don't know anybody like him I don't I. Don't know anybody liked him. I know people I know people like them but they don't hang out with me. You know what I mean. What? Do. You think that Luanne has a better season I. think she has a better season because she's being more honest. She's real wasn't real. She's being real now. Do you think do you think that the account Dila the the previous husband? Made, her act like the Countess of this make believe land that this was just part of her duties, his wife, and that because she's been freed from the shackles of their marriage that now she's able to be the woman from Connecticut that she was born. You got is fantastic. I'm luck had. Good I think that yes, I do. Yes I do I look. That's how I feel about it. But what about Sonia would why do you think she still wears the the the loafers with the Morgan Motif on it why is it so hard for her to let go of the? Year I don't know what I know what I think. You know what I got some people just in general that sometimes it's very hard to let go of the past life. ULITSA. So long you know what I mean or and as you get older, it's harder to let it go because you just so mentally into you know what I'm saying yeah. Like you just initially there. So it's hard to let go. That's what I feel like but what? I love your story. I'm sticking with that. That's very good. We now good when you're watching the show, is it important to you to Google Research in other words? Are you watching an episode and then someone watts? Walk Walks through a scene and you have to know who they are. So you find yourself looking up their facebook profile instagram. Doing. Police searches anything to find out more information that would. Give a fuller picture. I just go with Edmund now. I don't I don't know Huma. I didn't I know what it is I'm not that I don't do that. I make up my own my own thing and I go with all this is going to be the Guy Oh I know who he is and I stick with it to the end to see if it comes down and I was right Don't really hookah when they walk into yeah. We're like a name person. I don't really do that I don't really much them up yet don't review that I don't know why. All right. Now let's talk. Film Potomac because you love the show. Okay You've said that you like all people in all reality shows is, is it possible that you like every single person on this show? The characters that they are 'cause I don't know them as people. So I don't talk about people. I don't really know that but the cowards is that they show. I liked everybody. But Sir Ones I. Don't like the way that they've put shrinking themselves. Do you know what I mean 'cause I know this show and you gotta make yourself look a little bit different but I don't like the way there for training themselves 'cause it's not real. It's not authentic. Who Do you think least often took? It depends it depends 'cause in certain situations they act different team only I. Love. I love her and I feel I love everything about H- life I. Love Everything about it. I Love Ya Robin I love. She thought antics she's real. I mean Kansas. Maybe. She's not you know. Actually I feel like Ashley tried to put on a little bit of A. Sex Fit in yeah. You know what I mean because she can't find myself a little bit 'cause. He's trying to be a different way than she is, but she's just totally different having the baby. She's GonNa be more real and more honest. You know what? I that's how I feel. But I love the show. I just love it. Do you do do you ever get the feeling that the Potomac women are people that have watched every season of real housewives and now they are real housewives and they're just trying to figure out their way. that could be kate rich and you make I really feel like we're going to be this is going to be good making thing and I love it. That could be yes I love and how making a whole storyline in a pot like I made a whole I've made the whole ending of their lives without even knowing what's going to happen I like to do that I liked adventure off on my own thing you know what's GonNa Happen Like I love to do that but I predicted I predicted from the beginning that Robert was going to get back with her husband I knew it. Well it would you wanNA leave the husband he is by far the hottest husband of all the real housewives franchise is I. Don't believe what I mean. Yeah had. Got Children if she's very family oriented I, get it and I love it. But I knew that they were Gonna I knew that this was going to happen. I just addicted. They were going to get back together I knew I just felt like that in my heart I do that because when it happens, I wanNA make like I said it. But yeah, that's how I feel are. Are you confident that just sell and Jamal will make it again make it work or do you have fears like I do that? He just wants to be back on television? No I feel that she first of all I don't know sense to any of them I. Don't think that she should be with him because she's fine on. Doesn't need him to complete her. She doesn't need to complete historic story. She's flying around beautiful children working separately together. Great. That's how I feel. It's my opinion I feel like he's not gonna be. At Fajar he wants more I. Feel like you know she was sure she loves she loves her but I don't know I. Don't see it. I just don't see. Is it mature or predicted predicting their life? Can you match or a? Do you think it's important for sure to come back to the show to tie up loose ends? Is it I feel like she should just stay with us Okay and yeah because I don't then trying to make a story I mean I feel my opinion trying to make it a story line with Hall. What might I just feel leave it alone? We get along what do you? Think's going to happen between monique in canvas because we have seen clips that they get into a tussle Canada's been on my show and said, she will never film with Monica again we are led to believe that there's some sort of scuffle. It's like west side story, the sharks and the jets. What happens dead? What do you think happens? Is going to happen. Yeah. Well I'm from Brooklyn. You can't ask me because what's going to happen if somebody's. Somebody's taking the shit out of somebody. That's what I would say. That's what I would say but I'm not in be alive but you know the lives that they live like I'm more like you know. So getting the shit kicked that somebody me. But that's how I you know what? I mean. But since I'm a lady in on the show I'm not gonNA talk like that. But if I wasn't, that's how I would talk provide. Talk. About it here in she can stay married. You think that they should stay together she should cut her losses and live the life that she was meant to live. He's GonNa say she's living the life she's mental with you take a vow. That's how I feel how I feel thousands people feel differently I get it. But I feel like she's happy and I feel like they do love each other and I feel like everybody has a bump in the road. Yeah. You're not even I don't think and he's not leaving her she's leaving him they love each other. But if you know what I mean, sometimes it gets a little stale but that's fine. She'll get through it. He loves it. He loves and he doesn't strike me as somebody who would perhaps divorce her and then date twenty year old and drive a transam like he just seems to be very content to just watch golf. Yeah you get old you grow together and it gets boring I. Guess after a while we end up we ended up they have a nice life. They have a beautiful life together. Thank God. God, bless to healthy they're going to be fine going to get over it. So that leads me to real housewives of New Jersey. Now, they're still the newest season right now there are some new cast members of one or two. Is it. Okay. Is it still interesting to the life of Theresa Judaize and Melissa Gorka you know what it is I'm emitted I'm committed I watched it from the beginning on Vesta I'm in I'm in yeah I feel like you gotta finish it to the end. Expect you know what I mean when you wash. Stop watching something to now I've been in it since the beginning. The. Beginning to the end. Always entertaining. No sly believe half. No. Show if warring some parts. Yeah. But I'm I'm too much into it. I put to put too much of my time into it. So I gotTA finish. What about Joe? giudice selling sex toys, and Italy are you surprised that that's is a vocation at this time or does that seem par for the course? I mean I. Don't have felt that game to play both with it all right. He's got a job I don't I'm not purchasing any you know nothing they won't be but I'M NOT PURCHASING ANYTHING But. He's I. Guess He's finding his way you know listen you cannot the hustle gotta do what you guys do, but I mean, that's what he chose to do. Okay. All right. I get it. I. Remember when I think he's going I think he's going to find a young Italian girl he's going to marry her they're going to have like four sons and they'll be pitched splitting off I. Don't know if it will air on Bravo but some other ancillary network. And we were going all has they'll have like super. Italian names it'll be like Giuseppi Franco. Be like that. But all boils salvator knee my nephew's named the more. I feel. that. I don't think he's GonNa get married again now I think he's GonNa start a life for himself. Yeah. I don't know if I pitch him getting married again, he probably have a woman that he lives. You know whatever and Fox I don't know if he's going to get married against with the kids again you think yeah I think hello game I think he'll have children for sure it'd be like a young. Like a young hot girl whereas let's miniskirts she's not going to speak any English. I don't live in Italy. got. Any. Go have a spin off and that's going to be part of the funny thing is like she speaks no English shack could be she doesn't. Okay. So when he complains about her like he did Complain About Teresa on Roswell New Jersey, she's going to have no idea because she doesn't understand English, but they will have beautiful little boys will be tyrants. They'll just like beat up everybody in town, but they're gonNA have this whole other spinoff life and the girls will visit from the states and we`ll Just be appalled by his new wife, but they're gonNA love their dad and that's GonNa make for some really funny content. I'M GONNA say he's going to become a bigger star globally than she ever was because this show new, Jersey's going to end in some time and wants to show ends people kind of forget about the housewives that have left the show or the the franchise's it ended and I think Joe Judy split become this like international sensation judging like modelling pageants variety shows in Italy. Like this big star and they'll do a bunch of endorsements and may even have like his own jewelry line like fat necklaces or something wrong. Wow. Okay. The one about this. No. Good for us. All right. What do think about Danielle stop where we'll take her now that she's off the show. I think that she's got a lot going for her on. Late. You know like I said to me you go on the show. Thank God God. Bless it brings good things hopefully for everybody you know they all have beautiful before bumps in the road that we will have to see on. TV, 'cause it's life unfortunately but I don't know what she had going on. So she has things going on you know what I mean sometimes show makes you look because I don't know anybody personally I love half of the ones that I speak to but. Sometimes the shadow makes you look in a light that you didn't WanNa look unfortunately because she put south out there like that. That's what you gotta look like. DUAL DOLORES OF IT alliance to in the new season. Dolores is insane. You trump I, think the Lord's WHO's GonNa. Stay insurance. You know what it means. She's I don't think they're gonNA involve her in it maybe to research a little bit what they like the way they portray her on the show again I don't know her personally, but the way that they portray on she's GonNa. Be Like me me me but I think that's a lawrence is GonNa stay neutral? I think she's GonNa stay neutral because you know I think there's listen we're not kids. But I think that she's GonNa stay neutral and not take anybody side I think that's what's going to happen I. Do I do what do you think about the man's does now that they've been off television you know caroline has a granddaughter now and Dina. It was just revealed that Dina's ex husband called for DNA, and her new husband to be attacked. And he was indicted. Does this show prize you And do you think that Carolina? Dina. Could ever have a relationship again after knowing information considering Dina's ex husband and caroline's husband continue to work together at the Brownstone catering weddings for people that are maybe in the mob. Wait a minute team is ex husband his brother. Yeah. Try to get them attack. Yes, he was. He. was just indicted. Apparently, he gave a guy a deal on a wedding in exchange for him like a wedding reception in exchange for him going this is. The according to the indictment. He in exchange for a reduced rate at the Brownstone. He went and broke into their home and attacked Dina and her new husband. Oh my gosh. Did you could you imagine? I can't imagine this. Everybody. In mind. With this happened in Brooklyn. He Yeah. But the yeah not just but I'm shocked headed happen on. Within him I love PA I know. Oh. My Dad Compete from what I see them I. Don't know them personally people that he lose his wine. All my again innocence or proven guilty. So we can't say 'cause you don't know the whole story room where reading. So we can't say anything about anybody 'cause we don't know. But if it is shrinking. To the even have a relationship ever again because caroline that caroline has come out and said. This is a horrible situation we need to know all the facts we will. We will be on the side of the truth we just need to know all the facts. Right so you know what it's. It's sad to say that there's three sides, your side, my side, and the truth. Unfortunately, you don't know you don't know what the truth is, and if that's true, it puts them in a Ho-. It puts you in a horrible particularly Tomas put her in a horrible predicament like what do you believe? What do you do? You what I'm saying you must be a horrible predicament. Kind of of this was on the show. It would make the show a little bit more interesting. You know. He's going to be on the show or more. You know what? Though I respect them out when they did. because. It was it was screwing what their family too much and we'll show that was going to be this this this and that, and probably all will do this.

Sarah Thomas' Food Adventures for Picky Eaters

"Being a mom is the toughest job there is and it doesn't come with instructions so it's okay if you don't have all the answers mo figure it out together. This is mom brain the larrea baldwin and daphne as hey guys welcome back to mongering. I'm daphne and i'm ilaria and daphne. Daphne is on maternity leave. How are you feeling hot out breath yep yep. That's pretty much uh-huh pretty sure that all of you guys can relate to that especially if you have summer babies and wonderful in so many ways like you don't have to bundle them up once third born but true and you can go for walks outside. It's no joke doing that final month in this crazy crazy crazy heat so we're all thinking being about you and drink lots of water so i went off on my own and recorded some episodes and i missed my partner in crime but we are looping her in here today. You chatted with sarah thomas from column on his kitchen. <hes> who is she. What's what are you talking about. Sarah thomas thomas who i ran into in l. a. but we're both new york. Base is the chief imagination and story chef at kalamata kitchen. Counter modest kitchen is a series of books <hes> and then that teach kids to be more adventurous with eating and trying different foods and not being so afraid <hes> and is a really really cool idea. They have events <hes> the kids are called their little taste buds and so cute and they will take a pledge where <hes> <hes> where they will agree to try every single food two times now whether you can make it to an event or not make it to an event obviously that is very difficult depending on where you live. She gives us really great tips. <hes> so if you have a picky eater and even if you don't have picky eater and you just want to improve <hes> <hes> the palette of your child and introduce new foods to them and stuff like that this she has some really great ideas so i think you're going to love this one yeah. I'm pumped. I mean look my kids have gone. I run the gamut of that. When when fellow was too she would eat everything literally. Everything i could lentil soup mashed potatoes. <hes> <hes> you know any kind of protein. She was such a great eater and then all of a sudden that are like three three and a half. She decided she did not like fruit. She'll never eat fruit again for taste funky to her and at some point you do have to realize that kids are themselves and they you know they have to be allowed to develop their own tastes. They have to be allowed to assert themselves in certain ways but at the same time i am as a concerned parent and someone who knows the value of healthy eating for every part of growth and development you wanna make sure they're getting a balance. I'm always game to hear are people's tricks and tips and great recipes that kids love and i can't wait to listen to this conversation. Enjoy this conversation with sarah thomas. We're going to ask you to introduce. She's yourself. Oh sure i m sarah thomas. I am the co founder of colorado's kitchen and the author of our book series and i'm also a suddenly liberated an and and i'm really excited to be here so i have a very interesting story guys to. There's this juice bar when we go stay in l._a. <hes> usually working being always working <hes> we always stay at the beverly wilshire <hes> which is really nice in beverly hills and it for new yorkers. It's great because it's a very walkable walkable. Pardon you can find your starbucks. You can find your rite aid and you can find your gym and so it and the kids have their playground. You're buying star alec who are working a lot. It makes their everybody's life easier that the kids don't have to get in a car all the time to go anywhere everywhere so there's this juice bar around the corner from the hotel recalled creation with a k. and it's delicious and it's amazing and we get so excited to go there. <hes> and you know every single day you guys have probably i heard in the past i make my children drink a smoothie because i can blend all the things that i want them to eat at won't eat inches moody. You guys might also know oh that i have a very picky picky eaters four children and but the second one on my first son is a very picky eater to the point where it can bring tears tears tears tears <hes> and it's nothing that is very concerning until he just had his four year olds checkup yesterday because he just turned four two days ago and he he and i brought him in and he hasn't changed wait in the past three months but the doctor says he's extremely healthy and the things that he he won't eat that many things but the things that he does eat our our lake issues like you have nothing to worry you. I'm complaining that he's like just eating old meal and tofu and greens jews and you're fine whereas at least he's getting all the important important things like she'll have people come in and they are only eating in a grilled cheese and macaroni and cheese and pizza and stuff like that interestingly he won't touch any of those was things like olic. Tempt him with things. That aren't good for you. I'm like maybe he'll try this just because i want him to try something different and he's like no. I am not going to touch that <hes> so literally the night eight before i met sarah i am frustrated about something and in my head i'm like please please somebody needs to teach me. He come into my life. I literally think i conjured you up. I feel like you didn't exist today for you and i was just like begging for some sort of solution so fast forward to. I am <hes> in that juice bar with i believe two of my children. Were there and i am getting them. A smoothie and and sarah comes up to me she said can i give my your children a book. What can i buy my children. Do you guys want a book and of course they said yes because why who what child would not want to book <hes> and she handed <hes> what are my daughter a book of kalamazoo kitchen which is your book and then she explained to me bet you work with children who are should try new foods and maybe picky eaters. There's in sort of encouraging children to branch out and try different things and i immediately like heard angels seen from above the clouds part head and i'm like oh my gosh i i should ask for more things in life because likud showed up less than twenty four hours after i made this prayer to you know whoever is above <hes> and so we then then you had more than one book. You gave me your your card. You told me a little bit about what you did but i just had this great energy from me and i was like oh my god. This woman is fabulous fabulous and we go across the street and we have breakfast and during breakfast to entertain them. We read the column modest kitchen books to them. That's what happened right. After right. After we met <hes> and then i looked online and i realize i'm gonna let you say because you're gonna say it better than than is you <hes> but i found out that you have these events and and you do different things for kids who are picky eaters and you're in new york so it was like all of these like amazing coincidences come together. We met in beverly hills elves yet. We are go both returning to new york and so now please tell me what you do. I will say i'll start by saying. It was extremely certain we dan was a lovely moment. It felt right a lot of what we've done so far is felt really just serendipitous and really good and really natural and i think that that's because communist kitchen is a brand that <hes> seeks to introduce children to the world through diverse cultures through adventures with food. <hes> food is what unites everybody everybody but he eats. We all have a story to tell about. It and we all have a strong emotions about it. <hes> some people really dislike it. Sometimes some people really love it and at the end the day there's building blocks <hes> through food they can help people learn a lot of lessons and so yes. We do try to teach kids through character. Hold kalamata auto she experiences the world <hes> on these adventures with her sidekick and alligator pal named l. dante gets into a lot of mischief very until atlantic elder and they l. had ideas of what kind of animal was and someone wants analogous another one. I was like no. It's a dinosaur. That's fine. I know can be many hours. Literally wears many hats. What's in the shooter has drawn him in many hats <hes> but at the end of the day like we sort of looked out at the the food worlds and thought there's all these ways for parents to like trick their kids into eating something or try to you know foolish and trying this all these different methods but there was nothing that seemed to really lee speak from the child's perspective <hes> and so my business partner derek wallace actually had the idea to create this character and a brand around this character <hes> <hes> to get children's organically love experiencing the world through food because kalamata experienced the way the world through food and he did that out of a genuine need. He's he's the he's a father <hes> and he wanted to find a way to connect with his son. <hes> through the things that he loves to do derek loves to eat dirk love's travel. That's actually why we became friends <hes> and he came to me with the idea for it. I was like yes. I love this. I grew up in a household where all we did was everything we did was centered around food. <hes> i i saw an opportunity to share a lot of what made my own childhood really magical with other people and maybe achieve something along the way you are a somali yes which is a wind professional yes and a very fancy restaurant in yes. What gra you from wine to wanting to teach little kids to try markets. Will you know it's funny. It's not what i do at the restaurant is not so different from what i'm trying to do for kids essentially i of course they deal with wine at the restaurant <hes> but essentially i'm just trying to create experiences for people i try to guide people based on what they know and what they like into the best possible experience that they can have at the restaurant and oftentimes it's funny. People always talk about picky eaters as children but adults are way more stuck in their ways what they like and don't like to eat and a lotta. My favorite guests are people who are like okay. This is what i like. I may be willing to venture out to try something different and you know i get to be the one to sort have hold their hands and like in introduce them to something new and and that's the fun thing to do is funding to do with adults really fun thing to do with kids and it's also really necessary <hes> and so it was a pretty natural transition. I'm i'm not a parent myself but i was a kid who got to experience the world through food and i i that joy that that i felt when i was a kid on all my very strong memories <hes> they have translated through my life took extreme point right like i made it my career to taste and smell <hes> and and again i just i feel like there was a very natural fit when drake brothers idea enemy to to be able to sort of expand it <hes> and every parent i know has this lake arsenal of tools that they have to use to get their kids to eat at all let alone eat healthy <hes> and this is just a way to this is just another the tool right like it's it's something based on. I guess success story of like a kid who had anything <hes> it's just another it's just a tool offered from that perspective for parents and maybe try and and us with their children while it is. I mean extremely stressful to have a child that just won't try things and will cry and scream mm about it. I mean i feel like most people out there. I'm i'm somebody who had an eating disorder from when i was about five until i was twenty five was anorexic bulimic going through different weaves of it during during those those twenty years <hes> and i got to a place of being able to i believe curate i mean i eat what you and i'm gonna eat. Very smart want to eat things that are going to make my body strong but i'm also at this amazing place in my life i can try out the things that i would never have tried afraid before four and you really get to enjoy it and enjoy it in a way where i'm not gonna feel terrible the next day because it really wasn't very good for me but just be able to try a little bit and and savor that experience in have food be fun but i feel i'm gonna share that because <hes> i feel like most people have some issue with food and i think a lot of that you know raising for children and obviously may children are very little. Were like really in it right now but raising them till the age of five is just my oldest one <hes> <hes> is. There's so many challenges around the dinner table what to eat how much she are. You gonna sit down are you. The kind of family says clean your plate. Are you the kind of family that it doesn't want to say that and then your child wakes up in the middle of the night and hungry i mean there's it's so complicated to feed a child and we obsess about an obsess about enough suspect because we want them to be okay but during that process judy knew our own stresses we can sometimes make it worse you know we can we can behave as parents behave in ways that is too aggressive or not guiding enough. You know i have people always say oh a he'll. Oh grow out of it. He'll grow out of it and he might but i have a handful of adult friends who are so as you say stuck in their ways and will eat like seven things and and it really is a disservice to them because it's very unhealthy you know just to pizza and macaroni and cheese is not a way to have your body exists in the world andrew missing out on so much fun as food is fun so i'm trying <hes> hopefully successfully one day right now. I'm not so ashore to guide rafael into this path of encouraging him without being too forceful to eat different things making sure that he eats enough when he is the kind of child if like if i don't see food like i just won't eat i literally will just not eat and then <hes> you know making sure that he is getting the right nutrients that he needs to get and we've been lucky enough and <hes> that he is eating all of the important food groups <hes> and you know he's totally fine in terms of the wheat spectrum and stuff like that but i just you know i want to see him really enjoy it happened any does enjoy food that he they will choose <hes> so what are different tools that we can that we can use with are picky eaters. Well i mean you brought up to so many interesting things about oh your child and i think that's probably very relatable to a lot of people who have <hes> children are picky eaters and i think that one thing that we have found <hes> <hes> through a tasting events <hes> through just you know feedback from parents have interact with brand is that the idea is that children have to as you said when he chooses his own food he he will eat it. Children have to feel some sort of agency over the the decisions that they make <hes> and that's why we wanted to translate the lessons as they were through stories. <hes> because kids can smell a lesson lesson coming from a mile away and it's just like no thank you done with this but when it's organically translated waited through a story that they liked through character that they like oftentimes day just espoused the less the less than themselves <hes> one example. I give about the stories doing doing that and why the stories are interesting tool for parents in our first book. <hes> commodore makes a american gotta cake right and sieve pound cake with meringue frosting on all all these funny illustrations of al wearing fluffy frosting hat and and i when i wrote it and we put it out there. I was like well you know. I don't know this isn't exactly healthy eating being but it's fine <hes> and i was like oh kids are just gonna wanna eat meringue frosting. I guess that's kind of fun and the one part of that book that every every kid who sees it loves the most is illustration of kalamata eating a guava because the chef says when they were kids they always had fruit with their desert and and i didn't i had no idea that that was going to be the thing that people really caught on to you but it has been and so many people have told us like i'm an adult dolton. I've never had a guava in my life. Now i have to go to the grocery store and go find on. I i have to know my kid has to know so and then it became this like it becomes. Is this sort of fun. Scavenger on your grocery store because of kalamata would try go of oh what's another in fun fruit that she might try <hes> and so you know but that all comes from the kid they they fuel a sense of adventure because they're inspired by something that this character that they love did and that's really i mean the sense of of power is extremely important in all different aspects of of you know child rearing but very much so when it is you know has to do with what you put in your body and i think that's one of the reasons that for me i undeveloped needs hurt her. So young is okay. This is something i can control what i put in my body what i don't put it in my body and it ends up being more about the fight then then then about anything else we had jill castle a nutritionist on our podcast and we spoke about <hes> different things that we can do around the dinner table and i have started doing doing some of those and it really has helped so one of the things is served family style don't play the food and they can play the food and obviously you're watching when they're very little to make sure that they're actually eating because we do have to do some parenting we end but like oh sure you can <hes> and that helps a lot number one kids felix fancy. It's like oh my god. It's a party the every single night. I don't know why the thing it's a party but there's all these different options another thing is they say that she said that. Kids have to try foods sometimes fifty times in order to like it and cook it in many different ways. If it's <unk>. She's talked a lot about broccoli because she says people obsess over broccoli for some reason but she's like broccoli soup. Make roasted broccoli. Make you know rob brooklyn. This brooklyn that berkeley and again and again and again started having them. Try it <hes> and i feel like that. You know our arctic now. This is what i also wanna get into so my thing is. He has to lick it if you if you won't eat it you just have to lick it but you say you. You have to try it twice. Yes headways called the kalamata pledge. We have not said pledge which are taste. Buds are all of our everybody who's involved in our community. We call caller tastebuds. <hes> kids love it and we give a little membership cards to kids who take the pledge and and that's another tool i suppose is this pledge itself. <hes> <hes> which is a promise to keep my mind open and my fork ready to try each new food at least two times and share with only played when someone doesn't have enough <hes> kids kids we ask them till they signed their name to it and they get to carry around their membership card that says this <hes> and we found also that kids just really like the sense of community right like they. They feel like if they've said this. Pledge part of combat is team <hes> and a lot. I've witnessed kids really taking it to heart which is so like i tear up all the time at our events <hes> because i'll have parents come up to me and be like my kid only eats beige food and then i'll be like oh which one's your kid and you know we turn around and the kids chugging juice in the corner and it's it's because it's a couple things right. They've taken the pledge. They've committed to doing this thing that their friend kalamata does. We give them a stamp every every time they <hes> they try. A food tried twice <hes> we tell them you don't have to like it. It's okay if you don't like it. The important thing is the experience appearance of trying it and a lot of times. You're you're what she said was right like. It might take a kid fifty times to do it to like something but that's okay too like it's all right as long as they have the idea of the experience of trying it it's more important than the food self in a in a lotta ways because maybe they don't like that specific thing but but this idea of trying things trying things twice is somewhere in their heads now <hes> and it becomes a fun thing to do and with stamp with commas pledge with their cards cards it becomes an affirmative thing to do as well <hes> so that's another really great tool that we have is just making kids feel like affirmed whenever they do make these these decisions for themselves themselves whether they actually eat the food or not so talk me through an event sure <hes> i love our events. They're really find we've done a couple of different formats <hes> but but generally we all are but always we have a passport food adventure passport <hes> anna v._i._p. Package that we hand out to all the kids so soon as they walk in the door kids know that this this is all about them this events for them. They're the stars of the show. <hes> then we have food stations setup all around whatever venue aaron <hes> and sometimes they're man by the chefs who made the food sometimes we're in a market and they there by their tasting directly from vendors but everybody has one kalamata approved bite that they hand out and those bites are listed in the passports <hes> and as kids walk around. That's very smart because i'm not like hey rafa. Take bite inhalation. Take like a little chrome with like a tooth and i'm like in china and try it. No it's it's just one bite yeah so it's so that like the halftime show <hes> and so the you know they go around in the different vendors at the different chefs will explain what the bite is oftentimes. They're things that like. I've never even had before but they're just you know it's fine. They make him look cool. <hes> and tell them if you taste this were to stamp your passport and you have a surprise if you complete your passport if you're gonna full passport stamped. We got something special for you <hes> and so they try it. They try steph <hes>. They don't like everything that's fine but the important thing is that they try it and they're excited to tell their parents that they tried it and they're excited to show them their stamps and their full passports <hes> and so at the end of it you know we ask them to take the pledge if they liked what they did and <hes> and then we give them a bunch of temporary tattoos which everybody loves the old onto anything. That's a temporary tattoo or a sticker as stereo upstairs among fearing valuable valuable. They want to keep them there. There's these all in new york these these events we only had like a mini launch party for a third book in new york. Actually all of the other ones wants have been elsewhere. <hes> we launched our first book. We wanted to launch an in food communities. I <hes> places where we knew that <hes> there is a strong food sensibility a strong sense of community <hes> and network of restaurants and chefs that we wanted to partner with and liked our idea and what had families to come in either restaurants <hes> and so we started in portland alan main and actually like a week before we launched in portland may and it was announced as von apetite like food city of the year it was again serendipitous like you wouldn't believe <hes> and then and we had this <hes> our first event their second one we did in pittsburgh which is where i'm from <hes> and then we did a couple of d._c. <hes> and and one in columbus in the north market which was like i mean i should probably shouldn't pick a favorite but it was my favorite very yeah. I love i love food markets like i love going to markets and just like like walking around and tasting. Things and i really excited about it so i was. I was like oh man like if i had a kid i would want them to be excited about going to markets but i can see the how it could be like difficult and overwhelming apparent to be like why would i take my kid to this place with like all the stimulation and like i can see how i think it depends. Maybe the four of mine but one mecca do but i can. I could see i was like maybe if we give people an opportunity to see how this could be really fun and like give them a little tool to make it fun on. Everybody'll be excited about it. The parents and the kids <hes> that really lives at the heart of the brand here is that this is all about communication. It's all about bonding time. It's about making the most of every food experience you have whether that's shopping <hes> whether that's cooking at home eating takeout at home eating regular meal at home going out to a restaurant we try trion. Were trying to make people see that. There's a wealth of opportunity to interact with food and the food world in everything that you do in your daily lives and you you probably could you know i'm trying to think here and be creative. 'cause you know are of course i. I'm dying went definitely on like if you have one anywhere near me. I am going to drop yup absolutely everything and bring my and brings at least rafa there but i would love to bring a couple of minutes. <hes> oh welcome thank you <hes> but i <hes> you know i'm trying to think about these different things that people could do at home and is there a way that i mean of. Course you know get the get the books which are amazing. I'm nick. I'm telling you guys we sat and bringing kids to a restaurant is like not my favorite thing. We'll bring forecast. Restaurant is not my favorite thing one or two who is okay but the four kids it's it's pretty crazy especially because the the younger to are so young <hes> but and there's one like run around and scream and stuff like that and then you get dirty looks from other people <hes> and i don't want to be that person who's just like putting an ipad out because i want them to be present for the food so i we were. We read those those books there and they were just like enchanted books. They were there so well down very very good book so things that people can do at home. They can get the books and you can talk about things but is there a way that you could create you could bring in these taste buds as colorado's pledge into your own home and and maybe different things that you're trying what are what are some tools that parents can use in their homes if they will not be able to make it to an event well i mean yeah other than the stories and i think like getting kids familiar with the idea idea behind kamata and what she stands for <hes> you know if in the third book for example i think it's one of the best tools i suppose that appearance could have is is jenny does the story of what eric repair did with his son adrian when he was growing up <hes> which was every <hes> every weekend they would pick a new place. We still have a map and they'd pick new. He let adrian pick <hes> country on the map and he'd say all right. Where are we going. Today and adrienne would say all right. We're going to china or we're going to france or whatever and he said what do they eat in france dead or what are they didn't china and chef repair would say they the cin they eat tomatoes with basil and whatever and basically they would talk through the idea for a donor <hes> he would assign adrian a task <hes> you know some sort of prep thing or making the menus <hes> and then he would cook and then they would talk about it and so like it was just that's it's unreasonable to expect that people could do that kind of thing every single day <hes> but it's one element of again again asking your children questions <hes> getting them excited about the things that they're going to be consuming <hes> to make them more thoughtful about everything that they're consuming because that comes down onto not just the actual food that they're eating but <hes> knowledge about other countries culture is about about just stories of people that make everything more interesting to a kid and i i feel like i grew up learning a lot about the world because of what my parents would tell me about what i was eating and they didn't have come out of kitchen. They just kind of did that because that's how they grew up to. <hes> i think that like seizing the opportunity to tell stories. Stories is a really really easy way. That's fun for everybody <hes> to get kids interested in eating and learning about the world on makes it makes it. Eh not just more interesting but it gives them some context. I mean everybody always loves say okay. You know be like popeye. Eat your spinach and you know make sure that you do this. Make you stronger and stuff like that and yes. All of these. Things are good but i think you know bringing in awareness of the world's bringing in you know wariness of of <hes> of ditches which is that's different and can be fun because kids were picky eaters. I think it's a whole myriad of different reasons that they have but like a lot of is just fear like or or this or it's like oh. This isn't fun. I don't want to have dinner. I don't wanna have dinner because they read that and to bring some light in to make it fun. I love your idea. I think i'm going to start are doing that actually about the different places in the world <hes> because i mean i'm i'm pretty great of an i'll. I'll create different different meals from my cook for my children almost every single night <hes> but i love that idea of being like okay today. We're gonna have a chinese recipe and then you know tomorrow. We're gonna go to ethiopia and then we're going to go to india. They can try all of these different things because i really do feel like you know. The pallet is is a muscle and it must be exercised. Ya <hes> and it's it's so interesting because like a lot of times i think p parents will try a couple of things and then just assume like if they're not gonna eat it. They just never going to happen. You're tired of of course all day you buy this food. They hung isn't chief and then you cook it and then you're like yeah. That's not happening yeah. Yeah and i think that you know that that's a very understandable problems very understandable problem <hes> and you know. I think that like remembering that at at a certain time like like you said like kids might have a fear about trying something or whatever but i think remembering that every at one point every single thing that kid tried was new <hes> and so treating everything as equally other is something that i like to say is is. I think another valuable tool is like at one point. An apple was as for as an avocado. <hes> oatmeal was as foreign as doll which is something that indian kids grow up eating all the time and trying i think from a apparent perspective or an adult perspective if you try and frame things as equally other <hes> it's it's another way to just get kids to see things from a different angle. Maybe <hes> <hes> and i think that's part of it. Right is like they have to sometimes day build up their own mental roadblocks on things and you might just have to flip the script a little ray <hes> i i i again. I am not doing it from like my own experience. It's that's something that i absolutely brilliant partner does with his kid. <hes> you know the lake when he's trying to get him to eat something different. He'll be might call it something different but it's not a trick right. It's just different way of a flipping the script on anything that's also important. You don't a trick your kids. I know oh that's it's. That's the trick but that's the tricky thing so. Let me tell you about tricking as i was. I was very much of that. I was like i am going to be that kind of parent. That's going to be like here is is a stock of broccoli and my child's like oh thank you mommy and they're going to cut it up and eat it just as as exactly doesn't work and then and and the end of the day you're like all right. We'll make kid needs to eat vegetables and i'm no matter how many times i put the brooklyn the plate or put the bees or the kale or whatever it is my child is like yeah i'm not eating and then the two years come and then you you know you create like the trauma and you're like okay my child's therapy and then the end down everything's road kit kit <hes> a little bit <hes> and so basically i started making smoothies now. I am not lying to them. There are if they asked me. They see me make this movie. There's vegetables in it but when i'm not pointing it out i'm not i'm like okay. There's kale and spinach and dan and broccoli in it. Usually sometimes we put avocado. We do all these different kinds of things but then i mask it with a protein powder to save for kids. It's not like weird. The protein powders like has pea protein and stuff. That's what i call that is chocolate he and sometimes i put honey in it and sometimes i'll put banana and and i'll put coconut water like choose different obviously z. not altogether because that'd be like a lot of sugar but i'll choose different things to sweeten it so it tastes good and then i had my kids will eat and then i know that they had yeah exactly but there is a little bit of tricky tricking in it. I think it's okay that wentz ocalan's okay. That's being said i do see at the same time like i want my kids. It's to know that there are no monsters in the closet and i want them to know that eating green peas is not scary and i really feel like you know the pediatricians that to me is this is rafael fearful of other things in his life and he probably is my child that is the most nervous of new things and he'll he'll say nah because we're so we're such an open and family mommy. I'm scared. Is it going to be scary. Is it going to be designate. We went to universal two years ago when we're in a different time and he i didn't never never carmen was the kind of person we heard to disney and she would hug mickey mouse and was so excited to grill all the princesses and be like <hes> cinderella. Why are are you wearing. This dress and you should be wearing that for us. <hes> where is sleeping beauty there like uh she's sleeping. She's like <hes> almost got you so it was like she literally was such a different kyle whereas whereas we're offices this guy this minion this giant minion character and he just started shrieking and he was like this is so scary and that's it's just kinda been. He's been always a little bit of an observer now. He's getting much more open and he you know he's the kind of kid that goes into the playground goes and makes a lot of friends and stuff like that but it's definitely been it on his own pace and she asked me that we went. We went to <hes> universal this time around when i met you and he was very nervous 'cause he remembered in from two years ago. He remembered and <hes> he was so proud of himself that he overcame his fear and so what the pediatrician was saying to me is that fear fear of food and fear of other things. It's all linked so a child who will tend to be a picky. Eater is often afraid of other things as well 'cause. It's sort of a fear of the of the unknown <hes> so you know during dur- during you know me me taking care of him as his mom is making sure that he's getting all the right things but at the same time mm-hmm you know taking you know pulling back the curtains of me like it's actually not so scary <hes> so that's i think very important in terms of not tricking them like if you niche each trick them to make sure that they're getting their basic nutrients check them but the rest of the time be like okay. That's just a base but now i'm going to still put the effort to do this. Sort of taste buds kalamata kitchen kind of thing of like hey. Let's try new stuff because it's fun. It's fun and you know. I think that kalamata and l. dante could go along way is waging some fears that it might have. There's a there's a comforting hand to hold. That's walking you. Through these adventures and and commodities ideas are really fun and kids seem to be have their own the idea after that i mean one of our goals is to create a more curious <hes> compassionate and courageous generation of eaters <hes> and through her adventure. I think that if they bond with the character there's a really solid chance that they'll kind of internalized some of the those characteristics from her and and feel a little little bit more courageous and inspired to take those ventures themselves will interesting what your way you're talking about with. The characters is i'm. I'm not gonna name the company but i had a business meeting about a year or two ago. <hes> with this company that does a lot of cartoons <hes> and they were talking about how influential these cartoons are. You're now in the us too when pe- when people used to ask children like a long time ago <hes> they would ask children who's the most influential person they would say like my mom and then they would say like maybe the president or you know something like that then. Maybe like you know fourth unless the he laughed. It was like the dad is then chelsea. It's like oh god. I think it depends on family found but it was always like the mom first and then you know and then it went on and on and on and now you know if maybe mama's i i but it's also these different characters that people get into whether is dora or is mickey mouse or is a princess orients. <hes> you know oh papa troll or any of these things they that is so influential and like you know the the president or you know at an jesus or any if these things that used to be on people's lists really longtime ago aren't on it anymore and so you really are touched on something that that's really important and his how much children are connecting with story characters and because their imagination is so amazing right now that they really make these story characters come alive yeah yeah i mean the characters exists for kids to love them <hes> and at the end of that if they love them as you said they'll create their own. They have their such incredible imaginations. They'll create their own adventures with it. <hes> food is just the medium that that we've chosen to go on the computer to go with commodore. These adventures and the nice thing about that medium is that everybody has to eat yeah. You have to see what multiple times a day exactly <hes> so you know and that's that's the interesting thing for you. Guys at home are wherever you are. You're listening to this podcast. I want you to think about are you. Somebody who has struggled with because almost everybody has do. I know when i'm hungry. Do i know what i want to eat. Wait does that coincide with what i should be eating and do i stop when i'm full and do i feel good afterwards. All these very simple things that we most of us as adults will pretend now you might have but when the doors are closed what's actually going on when we're eating when we're alone or one where with people were just extremely comfortable around. We can be vulnerable or they don't even care. They're not paying attention or whatever whatever chicks you have. I mean i remember when when i was struggling alive like nobody a new i had a problem i will go and close the door and then i would fall apart and it is this thing that drives me almost every single day of i want my children to know these basic things when i'm hungry. What should i eat and hopefully it should taste good because it should be pleasure. Food is pleasure and when should i stop and and really enjoying the experience but putting it in the grand scheme of things that i don't have to be obsessing about food all the time and i think that it's something that very very few of us actually figure out how to do when i really i mean i. I knew i wanted to be a parent one dad if i wanted to have as many kids as i've had but i i i would always say to myself. Look i need to fix this because i know i wanna be a mom. One day and i don't wanna pass on my stuff to other their people into my babies. I wanna make sure that this stops with me and then my children can have their own journey <hes> and i can of of course have the wisdom and knowledge you know to along the way to help them but i really want to make sure that that they i'm not putting my own shit on them him and <hes> and and it really has has been incredible to live in a way now where i can do those very simple things they are are so simple but they're so difficult so <hes> so i i think it's it's wonderful going going to a place of children being able to to to be experimental and realized that food is fun but then also putting it in the grand scheme of things i mean it's not so easy to be introspective and thoughtful when you're an adult i. I think you have so many other things go. We all have so many other things going on. It's very very easy to you know you're you're extremely thoughtful about what you're trying to feed your children grimm. It's very easy to forget to be thoughtful about what you're feeding yourself <hes> and to answer those questions truthfully and honestly to yourself <hes> and i think this is also a way to get a <hes> adults to think about their own their own issues their own thoughts on food and feeding and eating and family time <hes> in a way that they they can do with their children. I mean and imagine if you start that process young if you get kids to be more thoughtful about what they consume <hes> bill naturally make better better decisions as they get older. That's and that's what all of us want for the next generation <hes> with your parent or not. It's it's it's the future is a lot brighter. If kids are thoughtful about what they consume mm-hmm yeah yeah one hundred percent. Tell me about your restaurant guide. Absolutely we have the taste bud travel guide on our website. <hes> we're currently live in fifteen cities with plans to to go much bigger very soon. <hes> basically it's a curated list of places where you and your family can have food adventures <hes> and we've caught by that as like breweries restaurants <hes> all kinds of places where they will treat your kid like a v._i._p. <hes> you'll have a really great meal. You can spend some quality time with your family <hes>. There's you know they try and take the pressure off the what everybody knows that it's like high pressure situation to dine out with your kids and we've gone around and talked places that are very very welcoming to families but also have really high high quality food and beverage for the adults as well out. We ask here on mom brain. What your favorite thing is favorite thing is actually adjust. I got on the recommendation of my future sister-in-law who has a one year old baby and he has the greatest sound machine that has ever existed. I'm convinced into the it's for children but i bought it for myself. It's the hatch baby rest and it's like the it's outstanding. It's outstanding sound machine and i like i live in a little apartment in astoria construction everywhere and it starts really early and there's all these street noises and all the stuff and my fiance. I have very different schedules. I get home late. He gets up early all the stuff. I got this thing and we don't hear each other. We don't disturb each other anymore and i don't hear the construction and it's like genius so that's very good. That's a really good favorite thing that are guys that was sarah thomas <hes> she's absolutely amazing always incredible to me these people who come in and she's not a mom but she has such good sense <hes> <hes> because she's almost very connected to her own childhood and she has a children in her life <hes> but she's got a really good sense of of trying to bring adventure church onto our children's plates so i'm really excited to try <hes> <hes> some kind of bringing calamitous kitchen themes into my home. We've already done some of it. We love the bucks. <hes> a highly recommend getting them. If you're interested in following sarah you can find her on instagram at ask s. e. s. s. underscore thomas or you can follow columnists kitchen at cala modest kitchen <hes> i do i i started following them like immediately idiot because i just was like this woman has all the answers and i must know absolutely every single thing that you know <hes> you can also find them. Online calabasas kitchen dot come and now it's time for our favorite things favorite sayings. My favorite thing today is something that has completely changed my life. I'm somebody who loves to cook a lot at home and i would cook with the silicone utensils and i felt like okay. These are great. It's supposed to be e._p._a. Free <music> this that free up to a certain degree and stuff like that then i decided to get greener with my pants so i found these pants called green pan now green japan the inside of the pan nonstick but it's made with very <hes> nontoxic good materials very easy to clean. They're absolutely incredible. You can find them on amazon <hes> but what was interesting. This is where the utensil things come in is that as i was cooking i was noticing these little black ribbons in my my food and housing. That's so interesting. I didn't cook that very well. There's not crispy. It's not i haven't burnt anything and what i realized was that the spatulas that even though they're from really great brands and even though they are supposed to be super safe and up to a heat that i am not using mm-hmm little flecks of them were flaking off into my food and into the food of the kits now oftentimes. You'll hear that we eat like a credit card size of plastic every every single week and you know this has to do with plastic water bottles and stuff like that but it is coming from other things i had. I not gotten these green pan that are white right and you can really see what's going on. As your cooking i would have never known that spatulas actually do melt and leak tiny little bits into my food so i made the change to cooking with would <hes> i think it's really smart i have a lot of different kinds of bamboo and would <hes> spatulas and spoons that and it was hard because those silicone spatula are amazing for flipping things and creating beautiful plates of food and stuff like that but it's not worth it if you are ingesting plastic and you are having your children in just plastic <hes> so green pan taught me a lot. I also feel really great cooking in them because i know that nothing nothing is leaching into the food <hes> and we really have to be very thoughtful about what our kids eat on in terms of their plates what we're cooking in what we're cooking with <hes> so i highly recommend this. It's my favorite thing. Today is called the kitchen helper or maybe it's just kitchen helper. If you have seen these floating around instagram and i'm sure you have because it's how i discovered them. It is a basically an enclosed stool for your kids to stand on and be pushed up next to the counter durham be sort of adult so they can not just see what you're cooking but potentially give you a hand if they're old enough. It is so cool because you don't have to. I mean i would literally be. He's standing there holding one or two children who would try to climb on the same chair at the same time from falling off and also trying to stir the pot or chop things with the other other hand and i was always nervous with them falling off or tripping or or you know trying to get up or down and this is great because you kind of just enclosed them in and it keeps them at a and it's a really stable surface so it keeps them from toppling over to but i just look i i grew up cooking with my mom and my grandma in the kitchen. Admittedly i did not have a kitchen helper when i was doing <hes> and and it was how i initiated my love of food and my love of cooking in how we shared recipes and family traditions and and all of the memories that i have of of those times with my with my family are so important to me. I really want those for my kids as well so i do try to get them in the kitchen with me as much as possible. I also find it's the time they are most receptive to learning about healthy food and trying new things and there's something really fun about. You know dipping your brad in tomato. Oh sauce that's on the stove or seeing how vegetables change color when they're being cooked or <hes> or just experiencing different smells and the closer so you can bring the that experience home for kids the better especially as you to to to raise and cultivate adventurous happy eaters. There's so anyway. That is my favorite thing for this week and i think you're gonna love it all right guys. That's all for today. Don't forget to find us on instagram. Make sure that you share rate review. Tell your friends about as deeply as we'd love. How many people are joining our mom brain. Community breath want to watch us on youtube.

It's so exciting. The first one was the third, Harry Potter book. Now I since Henry has been born. I have not read many books. I read John Hodgman vacation land. That was excellent. The only book I think I read and then I read another one. Actually, I'm currently reading. I don't wanna get ahead of myself. You may not finish. Let's leave yourself somewhere to really. I got it from the library. So like I the pressures, okay, it's modern lovers by Emma Straub. Okay. I'm not finished with it yet, but I'm joint is a good, I think so. Okay. I dunno, I dunno vacationers if you years back, okay, which was like a real hip summary. All right. My small, oh my God, the new season, great British bake off or British. Leaking show on Netflix, so fucking good nor feeling so good. The other coho, Susan, I can't remember his very very, it's all so good and the challenges are a little bit more design oriented rather than like Baker good. You know, an ice loaf of bread. It's like Baykal of bread that looks like a handbag like they do that sometimes seasons. But this season's just like every challenge has a wild design alum, try not a lot of new stuff. It's very watchable and I, it was watchable before, but now it seems a little more I don't. I don't know a little more risque. I guess there's a lot of very suggestive humor. So that's good. I tell you what's good, the are the movie from eighties. The thing I I started, I went down like a YouTube rabbit hole like practical special effects, and I watched like a video about the practical, special effects of the thing. And man, I fucking love that movie. It is like it is gory as hell, can't be as hell, but the special effects in that movie that they accomplish. I remember the first time you saw it. It was not. I was maybe it was in college. Okay. I feel like you big proponent that. Yeah, I think we watched it together, right? Yes. Everything like all the stuff that happens that movie that scene where like the guy turned every scene where guys turn into monsters is is all like puppetry and practical effects, and watching videos like irony was really impressed by, but seeing like just how ahead of its time it was and how brilliant that show was like, really, really, really blew me away. I'm a sucker for like really good practical effects. Movies thing about the Lord of the rings movie specifically forced perspective and how they accomplished like the height differences between the hobbits and Gandalf. It's like really fucking fascinating because they had to do that shit the whole movie anyway. Yeah, practical effects in general. I'm into the fly also, but the thing is just a good flick. I haven't seen the the. Not remake. They may like a prequel in two thousand eleven. I haven't seen it, but I think you first this week I do you wanna tell me what it is. Three words Griffin. A little. Friday night life. Yes, yes, yes, yes. This is the one going to be a real touchdown. This segment. That's nice. Love that show. I have watched the whole series maybe three times four times. I think four times maybe I've done just two. Yeah. Yeah. No, that's fair because we, you watched it when I watched it with you for the first time that you you'd watched it before. There was a sort of cult of fandom around this show for all of my Austin friends that all sort of adopted me into moved down here immediately when Griffin moved here, we were like, you have of Wasser show and I didn't really get it. But like they shot a lot of stuff locally. And so I think that there when you lived in Austin, like in that era, you had to be watching fucking show because they shot stuff down at the Alamo freeze or whatever the actual established. So this was a five season show from two thousand eight to twenty eleven, really four season show. They had. It's weird. You know, some hotel skip the thirteenth floor. They just go one right into three and four and five in that weird how they did that. Season two. Not very good. Yeah, I will have not here to talk about that. No, a bunch of very popular actors these days. Got their start or not. There start necessarily, but you know, gained notoriety shirt friend Cuba. Gooding junior. Cackles wait. What is this show describing. What an unusual pairing that is? Yeah, sure. Vince Vaughn. Rutger Hauer. I don't even know what that name is. You just said cool. No, yeah, there's some big, some big names on this one. So Michael Jordan, Michael, b, Jordan. Indeed, Jesse Plemmons Jesse. Blemishes may be the separate. Surprisingly, the biggest names come out navy show, Minka Kelly. Sure. Cash and there's any number. I mean, Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton were already pretty savage actors, but definitely got them a lot of attention. Yeah, I've seen the kid who played, oh my God, I guess we have to watch it again because I can't remember this. The backup quarterbacks name. Sarasin. I seen Hanif flip Loria. Yeah, I think that might be a name, and of course Reagan's. K had a sort of everyone sort of thought he was going to be. The biggest thing can then we haven't seen him lane by comedian. He crashed into earth, or should I say Mars or should I say John Carter's welcome to Mars or whatever the flick was called. While they were all together, they're making some real magic. Oh my gosh show. So that's one of those shows where as soon as I finish it, I think about when I can reasonably watch it again. Yes. So I found this really great kind of analysis from the Atlantic and twenty sixteen which was the ten year anniversary can't be right. Is it maybe? Well, I just said it's it premiered two thousand eight Iran from two thousand six to two thousand eleven. Oh, my dates are wrong. Well, that makes sense because two thousand eight to two thousand eleven would not be enough seasons, but not being of seasons. So let me talk a little bit about what the article says. I think you'll appreciate it. It showed those people struggling in striving and doing what they had to get by in the television landscape that largely obscured notions of class and financial struggle. Frenette legged scrappled explicitly with money and with the psychic strain that so often. Companies, it's absence, the Riggins brothers and their four gene of copper wire spoilers despoilers Jason street teaming up with them to flip a house in downmarket the Taylor's giving up their dream home. Another turn of events foreshadowed in the series pilot. Once they realized how much stress the higher mortgage payments would add to their lives Tyra. And Julie working Applebee's, Matt and smash, working Alamo freeze. Vince working raise barbecue a crucial element of front lights. Expansive empathy was to recognize the ways that money can serve as its own kind of supporting character. Interesting. I've never really thought this show. Yeah, the show would the article talks about how there's a lot of cliches in the show, like there's football players. There's cheerleaders, there's like nerds, and there's this idea of like, oh, this is like every other show, but there's something about it. That feels very honest. And I think it's things like that that make the difference. It would not surprise me if there was a large part of audience who's never watched this show before. So maybe like it will be worth explaining that it's a show about high school football team in small town in Texas. Yes, but it's a very, very good and like beloved football team that the town is sort of built around and you hear that and you think fuck in varsity blues, and then go ahead and grab the steering wheel, jerk it clean the other direction because it's super, not that at all. Because a lot of people heard the title of the show and heard that it was about football and just assumed it wasn't for that. All. I don't care about football really at all. Also very good. This has maybe pound for pound the maybe other than battle star, like the best pilot episode of any TV show what a big swing. They big fucking swing. But yeah, what I like about what that article says. Now that I think people who didn't know what the show is kind of a bit more about is that it does like it does. It is. It gets into like the like the kind of bad behavior that you would expect from like a very talented jock in a small town football team, where everybody in town wants to like protect the football team at all costs like it gets into that. Certainly, it doesn't shy away from that. There's so much other stuff that feels like a local study. Yes, like it feels very, very deeply Texas in a in a way that is not like anything I've ever seen before because it's not like obvious in any way. It's got atmosphere like for days. Yeah. Well, and the other. The article talks about has how each character like gets their time. You know, like there's no, there's no throwaway characters on this show. Like every character obviously serves a role, but you get to find out a little bit about why they are the way they are and why they're serving that role and and and it's just it's just kind of incredible it like, and I feel like if you watch that, I. Episode. Like if you get all the way through that I f Assode late, you're in your in, you know it it, it takes this very real thing for a lot of people. I mean, if you grow up in a small town, football kind of is sure that's what people do. You know there isn't a lot to do on Friday night in a small town except go to the football game, and it kind of gives you that energy, but then also kind of the very real stories behind it is so. Oh, got it. So good. It's so good. Yeah, I could talk all night about Frenette line. There's a lot of very powerful things, but I think you should just watch it 'cause I don't wanna I was going to talk like, oh, what's your favorite moment to die? Can't do that. Do you wanna know my first thing, yes. My first thing is to be careful about how I worded it getting up high in a big city, getting high up. Maybe that's a better getting high up in a big city, getting high, getting high up in a big city that I'm visiting. That's probably the best. Okay. This is a good conversation for us to have. Yes. So pretty much any time we go when we travel and go to a place where there is a big high up place. Where you can see a lot of city like a toll tower or something. I always wanna go right up that bad boy and look down at the place that I am visiting. And I feel like this has a pretty universal appeal though. I'm, I think maybe you are dissenting on this because you wanna have an argument about it on your posture that you like leaned in and ready to strike Ella. Here's the thing. So I do appreciate that it gives you kind of your bearings to be able to see kind of the active landmarks will tell you. I get up there and I look around then I say, how long I'm I supposed to spend up here. I think if you think if you try to do it, correct. I think he's trying to do it right like that. Like it's just it's, you probably want enjoy it. There's a lap, like I try to very leisurely lap around the space Scher. And then when it's happening is I think, okay. Yeah, is definitely been up some towers in some places. I don't wanna name cities because I don't wanna like peo- anybody who lives in the cities, but I've gone up tower and looked around and seen the city from all around like, okay, that's kind of cool. But I've definitely had experiences at the top towers were like, you couldn't pull me off that fucking thing, trash on the arch. Is that what you're getting ready to do? The arch doesn't count the, I love Saint Louis. I love you. You are a beautiful city. First of all, a lot of people might not even know that you can go up the gateway arch, which is the big, arch and Saint Louis. There is a little elevator very little, very fucking little and they like slam like six people into these tiny cars where you are literally like making a little like not with your knees and then you get up top and you are in a tiny crawlspace with other people with these six inch high windows, you can look down. It's really, really built a very, very, really scared the shit out of me. But the first time I went up Willis towers, Sears tower in Chicago. I've been living there for like nine months of the one year that I lived there, and it was incredible because I looked around and it was for the first time. Like I felt like I was getting this context for the city that I was living in and really loved living in. And it's not like I was there doing some cartography. It was. It was just like a moment of really appreciating the size and the scope of of the city that I was living in and seeing. Some like landmarks, I could actually, you know, kind of see Roscoe village. It could see my neighborhood from from on top of the tower. And that was really, really cool for me because holy shit, I've been living there for a long time and I've never really seen it like this. I really liked. I spent a lot. We spent a long time on in the Tokyo tower in in Tokyo, which is like right in the middle of the city. There's also Tokyo sky tree, which is newer and bigger, but also really hard to get into a little coffee that was in Tokyo tower, shaded that that was something to do. They have like a little restaurant up there that we had a little coffee and looked out at the city. And like this was a city that we were having an incredible weekend and I had always wanted to visit. And now like I had this sort of sim city view like this new perspective of and I, I, I don't know. I think that's really cool. I'm very into the idea of when when traveling, especially when travelling to like a big going overseas or doing some destination like that. The idea of doing something like this are going to like a like a history museum for the place that you are visiting. We did that both in in Hong Kong, and we went to like a like a Japanese art history museum in Ueno park like that stuff like. And I know that's like very touristy right there. There's another school of thought this just like no, immerse yourself in the authentic culture and like, yeah, that's good important to this is. I don't know. I think this is this is a pretty easy thing to do, and it's it is right is it is valuable enriching in its own way? No. I do see that. I think traveling abroad, especially, I think that is. It is a lot more valuable in that way. The state side, I don't know, doesn't do a lot for me. No. I mean, there is some. I've definitely been to. Yeah, it doesn't do as much. I feel like in order to all cities kind of start to look the same little bit. You know, when you're like landing in an airplane and you look down on your kind of like this, this is John Bon Jovi over. What is this Memphis? Alright. No, I understand what you're although it does make the cities that are very like. I don't know. I, I don't wanna trash on any cities because I travel a fuck Thanh and yeah, play a lot of shows a cross country. I am very Jon Bon Jovi ask and I don't have like, I've always thought that about you baby. I don't have bad city experiences, but I do have cities that like I fly into and you do kind of get that perspective as you are landing and you sort of break the cloud cover recently. It was Phoenix landing in Phoenix like, oh, fuck, like they're like in the mount. That's like a mountain right there. That's why appreciate a good mountain. Yeah. I mean, there are cities Seattle, I feel the same. We're going to see at all here in a couple of weeks and I love I love going to Seattle kind of for this very reason because it's like geographically really fucking interesting and also has a distinctive distinctive look. I think I just think that because I feel like I know a little bit more about that city than than most, but that's. Because I went up the space needle. So I went up there and I watched think the black-eyed peas play a show at the stage that is kind of under it for some TV show, maybe Oprah. I am tripping balls right now. There's no way strange from things together, but it doesn't just have to be a tower right in Hong Kong. There is Victoria peak which is mountain sort of on the western edge of Hong Kong island, which is sort of the southern portion of Hong Kong. And that was really cool because it's kind of right on the edge of everything. It's not in the middle of the city. It's like right on the outskirts of it, but it's so high up that you can see everything. And when you are in such a like an environment that you are so unfamiliar with like that is a really, really cool experience of just sort of getting the getting the groundwork laid out for you ferris wheel to like getting getting a ferris wheel viewpoint of either, you know, a city where it's a permanent fixture or of the carnival that you're a ten. Ending is is neat. Giving that viewpoint. Also ferris wheels, just like do a lot. I feel like for a city skyline. You really selling me on this Griffin? I, yeah, I l like I know it's very basic, like going up going up the go of the space needle. I feel like sounds vary like I'm endorsing sort of this touristy behavior, but I think there's some, there's some. I have. Having travel as much as I have. I feel like there are certain, like touristy things that are like, there's a reason everybody does it, and there's a reason everybody should do it is because it's a, it's a genuinely sort of cool and. Like valuable experienced, hey, hey, hey, listeners get up high in your own town. Get upon your own town. Go go up, tall building, been to before living in the I lived in the West Virginia building, which is the tallest building in Huntington, and I lived way up there. That was fucking cool because I was time I've lived in for twenty two years, and I saw like new perspectives of it, hey, guys, deal you away. Hey, can I steal you away. Boop boop boop. All right, yeah, yeah, that would have been better in our Disney episode. Yeah. And even just go back and edit that in. Yes, so I'll I'll take the one from that episode and put it in here. Hey, good. Awesome. Hey, our first sponsor this week is Blair and Blair and is so very good, and they're called blue apron.

My second thing more than anything in my whole life. So I don't know what what had me on a teen kick, but my second thing frontline show about teens are teen poetry festivals. Yes. I'm so glad that you're doing this one because you sent me some you sent me one video and as is my custom. YouTube Pringles for me baby. I can't once pop one. I have. I watched like fourteen teen teen poetry. These injuries very deliberately sent you a link because we've talked a little bit about slam poetry. Sure. And there's a lot of misconceptions out there about it. There's a lot of like any piece of art there is a lot of bad slam poetry. Can you talk a bit about your sort of background with this like specific circus? This is interesting. So when I finished college, I was an English major, and I did an emphasis in creative writing and I moved Chicago, which as a big like culture of of performance and SAS and writers, and poets and emcees, and there's a very vibrant literary artistic scene. They're gonna bomb. Yes. Okay. Yes. So I. Started working at Barnes and noble in the cafe, and then was trying to find gigs kind of filled my interest. And I just happened to get two things at the same time. I got an internship at the poetry center of Chicago and chicken pox man stories all connected. How weird that I brought it up, which is one day a week on it was run by the school of the Art Institute of Chicago, and it was like a a more kind of refines, like traditional poetry environment. And then I became the volunteer coordinator for louder than a bomb, which was that point. It was two thousand five. So I think it was in its fourth year before the documentary. Oh yes. Several years before yet. I made a documentary about Lebanon mama actually called louder than they got some. It was Oprah, was Oprah network, was it okay. But I know a lot of people in that film because it was only maybe a year after I had left. 'cause I did it in two thousand five. So they get hundreds of Ahlin tears to like take tickets and be judges in poetry slams and you know, handle like meals and greet people and all that stuff. And so I- coordinated volunteers for that festival. And then I came back a second year and did it again because it was just incredibly inspiring. And so I did a little research just kind of on the whole concept of teen poetry festivals because I, I wanted to like let people know that there's this whole movement out there of kids doing a lot of performance poetry in this, like really kind of incredible like almost speech and debate kind of style speech debate was cool. Sorry, speech in debate folks. I don't know how well the compares it hold up because this this. Was I, I went to a lot of speech and debate stuff in this. This. This moved me in a way that speech and debate was yes, incapable of ever doing so latter than abound that I referenced came out of two thousand and one there was a time in Chicago after September eleventh, where they were discouraging young people of color in particular from assembling in groups of more than two as there. There was this kind of what they call like an anti-gang movement. And so kids were discouraged from congregating together as groups and louder than a bomb kind of came out of that of getting groups of kids together to give them kind of voice against authority and to speak to their own experience. So they worked with Chicago public schools and several kind of independent teams to kind of build up this poetry. Festival. So the poet's are twelve to nineteen years old in middle or high school or a community organization, and they compete as teams. And so there are what they call outs where a member of each team will perform individual piece in the NL perform a group peace and they are scored and then teams advanced to, you know, semifinals quarterfinals, that kind of thing. What I loved about it is they make a big point about how this is not about winning. You know, this is about sharing your story. Everybody has a story. So the kids in the suburbs that live in oak park, Illinois, and you know the kids that live, you know, in like less privileged parts of Chicago, all have rights to tell their story. All have unique experiences where sharing. So they used to do this like call and response thing where the the leaders of the so Anna west and Kevin Cova were the founders who I got to work. With when I was there and they used say, the point is not the point. The point is the poetry and all these kids would chant it. So who's iast. Like warmed my heart so much to see these people. Just like in these kids like cheer for each other and be so moved by each other stories and like feel so like heard and excited. And so I did some research on brave new voices, which is the international kind of culminating. So the kids that wanted Chicago would get to go to brave, new voices nurses from like all over the world. Yes, exactly. Every year over five hundred young poets go to a different US city four to five days and they get arts education. They get like these workshops and and then they get to perform. And so I what I sent Griffin was the twenty eighteen champions. Baltimore was the team that won the there were called do d- w do more poetry. I did what end up watching virtually. I really, really went to the most poetry. I think I've ever consumed in one sitting. Yeah, it's so I read a little bit about brave. So brave, new voices started in nine. One thousand nine hundred six. Oh, wow. Okay. So they just had their twenty year anniversary, not long ago. But if you read a little bit about preview voices, they say, we firmly believe that young people must think of their voices as vital tools through which they can process their lives, shape the world around them, and hone their abilities to envision and create long lasting impact to achieve. This are programs employ best practice of arts education, youth development while encouraging young people to write about issues relevant to them in their own vernacular. We ask people to gauge in their own cultures to help bridge their personal literacy in the traditional academic literacy is presented in school. Fuck. Yeah. It's just it's incredible to watch these students get up and you know, I mean they're teenagers, right? So a lot of it is, you know, very dramatic and it's very emotional and there's a tendency, I think, as an adult to start to listen to this and think, oh yeah, I know this kid, you know, like there's something about that experience of being a teenager that everybody thinks they. Understand, but what is I think incredible about these performances. These these poets. Have had the opportunity to really work with mentors professionals and really get it exactly what it is about them that makes them so unique and makes their experience like so worth sharing. It's firing remarkable. Go watch some of these, the fees. Pieces are the best use sent me one that was all about how cartoon cartoons, like the Baltimore team dropping a lot of names of like cartoons was more of a I got, I, it's hard to really put this into words, was more of a positive. Role model guiding force in in the lives of young queer people than a lot of adults who are supposed to be taking care of them were in. I it, it drops its hawks about this obviously very, very serious subject and does it through the lens of these. These things that were important to me when I was a kid weren't just like they weren't just stupid cartoons. They were standing in for something that like you were supposed to be giving the making me feel accepted. If you're looking for this. So the YouTube channel is youth speaks and the piece responding of his brave, new voices finals, Twenty-eight teen Baltimore round to it's fucking in credit. I'll tell you like, I think what, what moved me so much was obviously, like you said, like seeing this like. Very, very talented and brilliant group of like young, super diverse poets get out there and tell their stories and such like crystal clear, like very like, super, super relatable way was very moving. But there's also I think, an impulse that like I am kind of aging into of an it's something I feel kind of guilty about, and I think that's normal too of like, wow, we're going to be okay because the the, the, the people younger than me, the next generation are going to like save the world, and it's a watching these videos you. You get that like, oh my God. If if this is this is the next generation that's great and that is I feel guilty about that because it's like they, they shouldn't have a lot of their poetry is about how they were. They were wronged by generations that came before them, and so for us to look at their beautiful. Stories and things like we're gonna be okay, is a very, very privileged way to look at it. Well, it just tells it shares with you the value of empowering young people, you know, I think so much, and that's and that's powerful as fuck videos. The brave new voices kind of mission is to kind of bridge that understanding of like scholarly. Like I go to school and I talked to, and I learned about other people's stories, and here's how I have my own story and how I tell it and you know, with the influence and support what I'm learning in school, and when you give young people in opportunity to do that and motivate them and make them feel valuable. There's so much strength there. It's so inspiring. I watch those group performances where what will usually happen is they'll, you know, they'll they'll have portions of it. Were there speaking in unison where they have shared, you know lines and they will break off and kind of individually tell their own peace in their own story and then come back together. Either and speak in kind of one voice, and I just get chills DASA just over and over again, chills because they'll say something credibly, powerful, and they'll all join together and say something group. And it's just like, oh my gosh. When I when I got to innocent person, like I would really recommend you checking videos because there's one thing like read a poem, and there's nothing to see a group of people perform it together with just all of their heart. You know, an energy choreography, the choreography sometimes. Yeah, it's fucking great. My second thing I feel like there's going to be pretty fast. It's the song I realized I've never talked about iron and wine before, which is weird because that they m-. He may be like pound for pound my like, that's crazy to me that you have a Brit. I've talked about some of my favorites, but when I think about like the music that's meant a lot to me for for a long time at its iron and wine, I wanna talk specifically about, I thought about bringing like some some albums of his, but I think it'd be better to destroy down into one song. It's the trap e swinger and it's, it's, it's, it's a very, very beautiful on that. I think kind of kind of encapsulate. So my favorite stuff so iron in wine is American singer songwriter is named Sam beam, but he performs under the name iron and wine, which I think he got from some sort of like old timey supplement that was like, get your, get your your bone in iron and wine. I forget the the exact story about it. And he just plays these like really. Like occasionally Laker, remarkably gentle and lovely folksongs. Although I think as his career progressed, he sort of experimented with other funkier genres and that stuff is good too, but sort of for for me, that golden age was his two thousand four, ABA which is called our endless numbered days, which if you watched any movie or watched any TV show from the years at two thousand forty, two thousand six, you deaf. Oh, heard some music from this. He had. He had music. I don't know. Man, probably Grey's anatomy. I'm just spitballing here, but I'm betting that there were multiple songs on their song on the Garden State soundtrack, which is how I was first exposed to to his music. The trap swinger is actually it was written for a movie, wasn't on an album before it was first released on an album on around the well, which is like this rarities and besides compilation album, that is fucking phenomenal. It was written for the movie. In good company. Remember that one? No, that was to- for grace and Dennis Quaid and Scarborough and Tofa Grace's, I guess, working for dinner. I saw this movie. I definitely saw. I think it was one of those. I think I rented at blockbuster, if that's of places it in time for you. Dennis, Dennis Quaid was like two over Grace's boss, but Tofa for grace was dating scar. Joe who sounds familiar Dennis? Quaid's daughter, and I don't remember the movie being good, but this song is a fucking like masterpiece and it was written for it. It's a weird. It's a, it's, it's definitely the best thing to come out of this. I should go watch this movie now. I wouldn't say to do that. But I will say that the trap swinger is my favorite original song from Toepfer from for grace movie. I'm gonna play a little bit of it of it now and then sorta talk about like it. The. The. Is online. Time. So the song is nine and a half minutes long because it's so ambitious in scope like remember when we were looking for wedding songs, we were thinking about this one, and then we looked at the time I song was I n winds cover of such great heights. The postal service on because it's such a beautiful song and it has like a nice sort of it. Y'all picking a first Dan song is fucking taught. So hardy. So tough. Like I felt pretty sure that an iron Weinstein would do it because all of his things are so beautiful and about love. But also a lot of songs are about love and death are endless number days is first of all, titled our endless numbered days. So like any track that is going to be like, I love you. I love you. I love you where ashes and bones in the ground. It was like shit stop before the third thing. Tramp east wingers is is no different. This is a song if God, okay, it's it's it is a message, right? It's like a letter or a missive of some sort from somebody who has passed away to a former love of their who is still alive that is sort of brass tacks like what the song is about, but it tries to in eight verses, no choruses just eight versus back to back to back, tries to capture sort of the entire life experience through the through the lens of this relationship. Every verse starts out with, please remember me and then some sort of direction in which that this person wants to be remembered and it it reflects on this, this person, this couple's life and their experiences. It also includes this really, really beautiful sort of interpretation of the afterlife specifically standing at the pearly gates and seeing mass. Ages that people have written on the pearly gates to the people who are still alive who are going to get there after them so that they can find each other like ho shit like all right, Sam, this this is my favorite verse goes, please remember me fondly. I heard from someone you're still pretty, and then they went on to say that the pearly gates had some eloquent graffiti like we'll meet again and fuck the man and tell my mother not to worry and angels with their gray handshakes were always done in such a hurry. Like it's, it's it. I feel like there is a type of song that is so melodramatic that is like so like God, you're writing a song about, like I feel this way about in the I'm not better than I'm not above this song, but Dino I will follow you into the dark by death cab for Cutie that that's like a sawn. That's like it. When you when you die, I will die there right with you buddy at like shit. And I think this is like touching that braille a little bit for sure. But it does so so beautifully like the the imagery of this song is so so gorgeous. It's it's unbelievably sad. Like a lot of Ireland winds music is sad, but it's like that good kind of sad that makes you feel like template of and romantic, which no surprise like this came out in two thousand four. I graduated college era, high school in two thousand five. So I was like strapped in ready for the fucking ride that this album and all of iron winds music would like take me. I rode this wave for the next four fucking years and sort of defined this like period of like melancholy, but this like very indulgent melancholy. That's not all bad because you're sort of taking a big look at the bigger picture thing. Indulgent. Melancholy could be one of our wonderful thing. Yeah, I think that there's a definitely an unhealthy way to take that, but I think there's also a harmful harmless and like fun. That's one of the things that I miss most about my twenties melancholy. Yeah, for sure. And this is this is for sure soundtrack to that, but I also think that it transcends it. And I also think it is like one of the most beautiful songs ever written both sort of like lyrically narrative Lee, but also like it checks like all the wine boxes of shit. I love like very simple chord progression, really beautiful harmonies really like a rhythmic acoustic guitar. Like all of that stuff that was all over enlist number days and creek drink the cradle and around the well. And all those albums. It's like, that's like my favorite stuff that does. And the song has at all in this nine and a half minute. It's a fucking superlong song that weirdly like miraculously when it's over you. When somebody does highway heloc Kariuki get fury. Because it's like, okay, the rest of us wanna sing to like I felt all fifteen minutes of that fucking Meatloaf song. Oh, do you mean bad outta outta hell yes. So sorry. This song nine and a half minutes goes by, and I feel like I, I'm I, what if somebody at that. That would actually be terrible. That'd be really, really bad because I don't wanna get that sad when I do sad songs at karaoke. I dunno sometimes is there a good sad karaoke zone that's like. This is a good one, a good prompt. Man, it's tough to say there's good sad songs. I was thinking like yesterday by the Beatles, but like that's not a good karaoke is what's up a sad song. It's a powerful song, fast car. Have you ever seen someone do that carry? Okey, I think I've seen just do. Anyway, the trap he's doing great. It's off around the well which. Well, it's off in good company, but it's also on around the well. If you wanna go listen to it that whole album man that used to be. I would put that whole. I had that whole album of my Zun. It was like two discs and the first disc was like his really lo fi, like the rhythm, like era shit. That was I still, that's still my favorite vinyl actually do. Yeah. Just once one side of one record is the trap. Swing takes up an entire side. It's it's fucking, it's it's it's a beautiful science. When favorite songs do you want to know what some of our listeners favorite stuff is? Yes. Aaron says, I just love seeing little kids with their big backpacks. They're ready to take on the world and their Papa troll backpacks. They're gonna hold it for them. That is the cutest. I, you know what I thought about the other day.

EP 260: Bad Ditto

"Well apartment crew suggesting the mic for me. I had changed my position. He was like, yeah. You better sit like a gay because apparently I sit like a gay the stable, ROY. I've seen those Twitter threads that are just like I know like don't we could sit right? Yeah. And you know what that is true him. I wonder if there's a by way of sitting, which is like the way I'm probably now just like half normal. It's never in the driver's seat of a car. Amen. It's like I don't know. I was always like yelled at by my dad for sitting like shit, too. He told me that I was gonna get school turn out gay my dad, you still. So get mad at me like. Dining table set that they had, like all real would stuff. I don't know how like valuable was or anything, but, like I would always like real wood chairs. Yeah. I would always lean back on the back to legs. And he would get so pissed at me all the fucking time for that. And then I would I, I've, I've broken some things you know, I get annoyed about that kinda shit growing up as a twenty seven year old now. I am like isn't that just growing up? It's true. I phone out of terror to mate. This is coffee with Craig, I'm Rachel, and I'm Chris and today, we actually have non wholefoods buzz buzz. This is from. This is from known Nita here and the names on the other side. I was reading the back this will take the front. This is the Hoboken coffee. Roasters is that I don't know is that have to do with the old jersey. Hoboken, New Jersey. I'm assuming is it? I don't know. It doesn't say it's from New Jersey, but it could be. And this is the Ogi kid like okay. I e like when you're being illegal snooze. She and you're like, oh key kids blend, which is a floral aroma full-bodied, and has notes of baker's chocolate and tripled chore topics are I can't read. I always like a nice chocolate. Like when they say the chocolate as a base. No is. Yes, that's the word. I'm looking for. I tend I just noticed that. I enjoy those types. And so I'm back. So that's what we're drinking today folks. And you can hear this week's wheat home of the air purifiers getting those spring allergens out of the air, but to be fucking honest. It's actually been really great like I might have said this. But when I was really sick. I saw like my nose obviously, stuffed up. And I thought scientifically that was why my whole scientific experiment with hypothesis and the experiment. In conclusion, we did a blind double blind. But my I was high sizing that the pollen and the allergens were sticking to among going to say, what it was in my nose because I know we don't like these words, excuse me channel. This is not a chance. I don't like those guys. No, no. That's what they are. But it was really bad. Like my I've, I've never had such bad allergies. And so, in a desperate attempt to feel better, we got to air purifiers, like one for the main part of our part in one for the other part, that has really bad like what's I wasn't his like airflow, it has great airflow problem. It's still looking for when air can get in all my goddess, it's, it's not insulated watcher. I'm losing cognitive function. Fucking worked also squeeze stop sneezing. Yeah. It's been helpful around I only notice my allergies, like right. When I'm about to go to bed. I always take a pill. But maybe that's also because it's a twenty four hour allergy pill. And so it's wearing off who knows. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Who fucking nose? Anyway, we love those guys they're great Hummel way. Little boy. So we've got some things to talk about this week. There's been lots of updates. I'm not gonna lie. Like the it's been a pretty fucking heavy week. If you're someone that can be pregnant at anytime. Yeah. And I'm really upset everything that's going on in the news. Disappointed. But not surprised. I we did also get a bunch of requests from people to be like, hey, can you talk about some light happy fund ship, because the internet has been depressing? Ticker of bad fucking. I mean it kind of always is. But like I think especially this week, always like when we come to the show I get a little bit of like a like what, what do we do? Are we going to talk about it? But and so that way, we can continue to like saying is donate to Planned Parenthood right now and vote these fuckers out peak, please, if you are not registered to vote right now especially if you were someone that can get pregnant come on. What are you waiting for sign? The fuck up. November's going to be very important time on the home just stopped on the air purifier. Even the air purifiers invested in this, so. Yeah. So what is on the docket this week bitch? So we must do a little bit of light bragging of how according to the US news and World Report. I think that's what is fucking called who knows just do a lot of ranking things like officially with science or like data and they science data. Yes, it is. Chris. So they take a whole bunch of factors and every year, they've rank the states and this year Washington's number one, I feel good of the top state live in based off of like a whole bunch of different factors. It's not saying it's perfect state. There are. Yeah. No. It's like if you like actually go, and look at the breakdown of there's, like five or seven different like factors that they rated on and Washington's not number one of all of them or any of them, but they're all average top of all those categories. Yeah. What is the top ten if you have the pulled out while? I'm so glad you asked because this article that I have literally just tells me the top and the bottom ten. So the top ten are Washington New Hampshire. Mrs stilling is. Yeah. One-two-three Washington do Hampshire Minnesota Utah. Vermont Maryland Virginia mass. -chusetts Nebraska in Colorado. Okay. Virginio Washington, south. Yeah. There's. You know, I, I've, you would ask me, I'm not what I would have said. But I will say I was I don't know. I feel like I'm an idiot, like every time I think about Nebraska like I don't really hear much about the old bresca. Maybe that's why she's up there. It's just staying on drums, literally, nobody knows. I'll say I was surprised that New Hampshire number two, but also I've literally never been there. So if maybe I had, I would think highly your was that sentence. What did you just say? So you're not supposed to listen. To me. That's the goal here. Anyway, so start with the least bad of the ten to the worst. So from forty one to fifty ES Pennsylvania, it's forty one. Yes. South Carolina, Oklahoma, Alaska Arkansas, New Mexico, West Virginia Mississippi. Alabama in Louisiana is the fiftieth. Okay. Yeah. So I mean, I honestly I talking cackled when I saw Pennsylvania was there and Washington was number one, because it just it reaffirms MU. His head got a little bit bigger that day. And it's already fucking huge it on. Yeah. I we went to mount rainier and Ashley or I'm Mallory got a hat, and I tried to put it on and it wouldn't fit. So you can't fit and standard size I can't he's big and tall for hats. Girthy. Oh, please. No, no big head import him. That's fucking. But yeah, so that's I mean, I don't know not surprising. I don't know. I'm happy, Washington's number one, but also it's terrible. It's just raining, all the time, these our gi's they're literally killing me right now. Apple's domes just don't fucking come here. Like, I'm not one of those people, but I also kind of. Yeah. Okay. So then the next thing, we'll talk about was from Pennsylvania. It's from Hershey, Pennsylvania, 'cause Hershey's that chocolate is from Pennsylvania, except now, it's not as made Mexico. Yes. Absolutely not made here. But also chocolate is fucking garbage anyway, moving, I think it was great. I went there every year, and that's a non American fucking hates it. 'cause like plastic. It does. It actually probably is plastic the conspiracy. It's just like the yoga mat sandwich bread subway. Yes. So on classic bar. It's always just been like there's a little rectangles and they've all said her she's on the inside. Yeah. And they've never changed that even one that's never been his fiftieth anniversary. Never know they've never done anything different. So this is breaks. That's not broken the first redesign in one hundred twenty five years is this is titled for the texting generation, and they're putting emojis on it. I think they're not doing all them. There's all the Modi's are you? Sure, there's not just one. That's just a bunch of like arrows. I want to travel with just the blacks just want wonder covered in the TM. But anyway. Anyway. So they're doing the emojis. I will look at a photo to see what some of them are they don't have list on there. Because that's what the poop emoji is one of the mode, that is in. There's only doing twenty five of them. Okay. So is it like each of ours? I'll show you know they like. That. Yeah. Okay. So square in the bar is different emoji. So it's not just one emoji per shit bar. Yeah, it's interesting because you'd think that like somewhere just like pay Olsen right now. Like you'd think that they'd have a board room and they're like, is it? Good to put like poop on this thing is coloured. Yes, probably, they probably see a lot of people being Hershey's chocolate shit. Like so this just kind of like people make isn't Tutsi roll part of Hershey. No, it's actually it's own company. Shut up. Yeah. I didn't know that. So according to picture the thing that I over us all the time. We're just like the glimmer three sparkles. What every beauty grew also uses to like, kind of like book and a low phrase or something. Most. And the, the did these kind of like Android. Like the fucking laughing moody with tears looks very off kilter. But yeah, I can't I don't even know what that one is in the top left. It looks like a megaphone with spa. That's the. Yeah, that's still like the party megaphone thing looks literally. Nothing like the party. Yeah. You know, which one I'm talking because that's one of my most us one looks nothing like absolutely nothing like that. So it's like a hotdog giving birth definitely recommend pulling picture of that. But one of the things I wanted to bring up about this is because, you know, what's the marketing reason behind. You mentioned like the madman like Peggy Olson, like what's going on behind the scenes of this, and they pulled like the like you know how like every company like now they, they announced something and like the like reasoning or like the they're like mission is like some weird like philosophical ass like we're gonna change. This is not new work. Honestly, this is the way all average. I know but it's. Like I remember like seeing like dropbox like changing the way the world connects or something like that, some weird added they're trying to give you an emotion for using capitalism. That's all it is. But some of them have incentive incest, to buy folders coffee. For the game. So the little thing that they're trying to accomplish with this is that they're trying to, quote, spark conversations between parents and children, because they, it's like the whole like, do you know that your child is texting booking pain, flits you get at school and seeing them like? Seeing them, like, say. T. G L. Elemental b. They would always be things that you never did. Yeah. The parent behind back or something like that. Oh, my parent over shoulder, but it was just piece of shit. God bless good times. Good times honestly, thing about how little. Acronyms from the like AOL aimed days, actually kept going. G. L. O. N. T. L. O L L mayo. The beer be no one. I know like beer B, and like GT G like 'cause we don't fuck and leave SIS weedy. We don't leave everybody thinks that because you're on Twitter, any favor tweet at us lake you know, everyone conduct you at all. But literally, like you it's just home, g L mayo. L A O go now. It's all and that's things are represented by emojis now which picture painted thousand words, what was I writing before the glimmer, or the moon, the moon, I would theorize was XT. I know that it wasn't, but it kind of has a similar chaotic energy. I just wanna know how this is going to spark conversation like everyone's gonna be like this. Is that a hot exploding on the side there? I can't tell all it's the party favor. Move Hayes son, you're eating the, the poop square. How's your how your poops Finley? Oh, they've been Greek dad. Thanks. That's that's weird. What are they doing to my brand? I would have liked it better in the cookies and cream one because that's the only good bar. Like I have just true. I remember cruncher. She's no. That's nestle. Right. Nancy quite do. I have an encyclopedic knowledge of all candies. Not shocking. I grew up going to Hershey every year. So I had to know the enemy. And then I like brought to. What are you doing? Fondled might whether. Fondled. I'm Brian to chocolate world. And like over this cows. It was like when we gone been a while since I've been there, and then I had time to realize chocolate wasn't good. And it was kind of lackluster, like especially also going to. No. We only went to chocolate world only went there, didn't Raleigh, did, we do the three D show. I don't know there's like three show. I don't think we cost more money at cost more money. That's all little the little train thing with the cows is free. So that's why I just wanted to see those robotic Chucky cheese. Ask house and honestly agree that are really stunning. They should be in the musical. Well, that's very interesting. Chris, they even being those the tables. Yes, while unisom. Next topic NPR could've named this podcast the table. But I think that actually exists. That's but it's called like the red table. Way we white half the time. Not even added. Exactly. And when we started the show, we were probably add a cardboard box. So where were we on at the counter of our, like counter our first apartment, that was like really low on kind of table. Yes. And just literally propping, the recorder onto some books firing. Good times. Anyway. So there's been a lot of things going on in terms of media these days has there always are detective Pika choose out. I can't wait to rub by fingers through that Pika. That's all I wanna say about just look, so fucking cute. And I'm just going to pretend it's Ron Reynolds, voice. I have nothing against him. I to my knowledge he hasn't done anything really fucked up. I just like you know, I wanted a squeaky peak voice, and I understand they wanted to give you like a gritty. I don't know. I just feel like there were so many options, you could have given him any voice, and I wanted something this character, it would have been so funny, if they gave him leg a really like deep and like, mysterious voice, but I kind of being. That would have been Larry would agree. Whatever I'm just, I'm just ready to see it, because it looks very fun. And e-3 is very much coming up. Yeah. So we had a direct today were recording on what it was. That today was can't remember there's a direct this week for Mario maker to which means that, like everybody's saying is clearing, the way for more and or animal crossing talk. And I'm very for that feeling very hopeful. I'd say my prediction is that my prediction is, they'll open with the new smash character something there, you know van with either a new smash character or a trailer for the Mario Kart mobile game. That's the most come out and then it'll like today play it. Yeah or like, really soon. That's my prediction, and the. Due today type of thing. But they so they did announce their eighth reschedule or whatever and game stop like US finally has a listing on their website. If you search animal crossing, it's the first thing is just as animal crossing and imprint the season switch. And it's fifty nine ninety nine which is not shocking, and it's a preorder. There's literally no image. No nothing description. But it does say release date December thirty first twenty nineteen and like a could just be a placeholder absolutely voted. I don't think anybody would ever release on New Year's Eve. I didn't think about my thought is that I'm hoping that it's much sooner and I still don't know. Like I know it's so stupid because it's really like a month away. So we're gonna probably find out in a month when it's going to be released. And so we can stop speculating, I still think it's weird. If they do a holiday released because Chris disagrees with me here. But I think that like a lot of the pokey. Mon- audience is also shared with animal crossing audience, and I don't think that they would want to release both of those at the exact same time, bomb people buying like a branded Pok Mon. Switch versus of branded animal crossing switch, or at the same time, like I don't know, feel like Amel crossing is going to be a late summer early fall, coz, they probably would want you to experience like the all as that are happened at the later half of the year. And then Pokemon is going to be like, November December, I think pug month one hundred percent going to be the big Hollywood Holly. The big Hollywood blockbuster yet. Yeah. But it would be hilarious. And also, I'd be very upset if they literally did release it on New Year's Eve because they said twenty nineteen back in September, and inches, though their last day one idea. And so I mean technically they're not fucking wrong. And there goes the coffeemaker with that sense of urgency, but I would laugh and I would also be sad. I really just think, okay. This is like such a fucking random thing. And I would actually shit if this were ever to come. True. So here's my prediction, and it's going to sound really weird and really long winded. But just audited in pocket. Can't they recently added backpacks? Okay. And this is the first time an animal crossing character could wear something on their back. Okay. Like a fucking and you can't it's like literally just decor. It's just like accessory like a hat or whatever, but and you can't use it as a functional thing. But also in pocket camp. You don't need like your tool on you because they just pop out when you're. At a location where you can fish or whatever my theory, and I will literally die. If this comes true is that it's an omen to us getting wearable, pouched lake vessels, in whatever iterative annual crossing whereabout to get which would be great for game play. And this is something that we've all wanted for so long. However, it makes me think, what if they do a cute little cheeky, and of August early September back to school as release and the new get because in September, you're still green like in terms of trees, and then you get like the whole fall transition into winter, and all the holidays and everything like that. And I just think it'd be a really cute time of the year back to school. Also fix for me also is vibe because I would agree that Louise mentioned would probably be. Release. Yeah. So I mean this very forgetting about that. I hope we see a decent amount of that e-3 like manned like switches, your get us so much cited like it'd be really cool. I think like a late August. Early September release would be really cute. And like, you know, switch, it's portable ano- crossings like a, a hand held game, you know, like it's going to be cool to have it on the TV like primarily a lot of people are playing this on their DS and stuff. And I think it's like you know, if they're gonna have like a, a lot more revamped online components with friends like the new leaf did have a decent amount of like playing with other people. It's just like it was like a little wack this'll be probably better breeding your switch with you to school. I don't know. And then I, I really high have anymore. Walking like the coins used to get. They haven't done that with any other game on the switch so far. So I don't really think that they're going to it's just like it's a part of the animal crossing. Now, I don't know. That's just my little lake. Maybe it's September. I don't know literally guys, you will be so happy when it finally happens because we will shut the fuck. And that's when we actually know a day, we can stop saying speculate. I'm pretty sure we have probably speculated every month past June for the server lease thing about when the game comes out, and I give like my their Bill. Whole animal crossing episode when it comes out because it'll just be about like the graphics and the game played what the Lou fly is what they've added that's new. It'll just be are like home, not gonna on it'll be fun. So I'm sorry if you don't play 'em 'cause you're gonna get Olen crossing. I mean honestly, it's required was into the shows. So we're only a religious it only gonna release episodes on on. Switch. We'll, we'll mail them to you in animal crossing attached to a letter. Oh my God. I can't wait to see what they've done to the letters. Can wait to send you mail. I wish that we don't know if we can send to their mandate, they would ever ever like you technically have it. Do you think that they will give you a phone to actually do things I okay here's my thing home? I God I, I kind of understand why they have the phone in pocket. Camp makes sense. It's mobile game. The so I get it. I really hope that doesn't destroy the like charm of having the male and the packages and stuff like that. I hope that they don't have it like you're getting fucking texts, but also would be Hugh to texture villagers as very modern. I don't know. But I think like in terms of sending letters and stuff to other players. I don't know if they're going to do that, because they're so worried that like you're going to, like, say something, like, you know, rude or thirty or whatever you know. And like I feel like. But have you could people's little like this, or whatever and also wears smoking running to like banned words. So, yeah, I mean they probably do. Oh, yeah. I think they did especially because I think except for I mean, the way the mon- moderated the me verse. New Super, Mario Bros, you or whatever we saw a lot of shit. Though. They did they definitely made it like I remember when Astros Niemira town suck bay. She had put like fifty sees would knows writing, and I think I try to nuke because that's our GTE thing, and they weren't allowing that. Like that's not even close. So I think I think the way you send letters if they keep that. Friends, though, true under front, you have to them, which is fine because honestly, I love that the switch has like the Twitter integration that will be really convenient. The so I think that's really all the room talk about today because we have a lot of questions unless you had something else on your list, or doing a bring home or thing, it was just a little bit of news, where the news. Yeah. So saw that Uber has like mode now which is like it's not on everything. It's like really Uber? Black whack. Yeah. And it's just basically like you can say in the app if you don't wanna have a conversation with your Uber just like we not see how disturbing future. This is yes. Very black mirror. It's very like getting the deluxe bath, and he's just like, don't talk to me. But it's like we can't like I know, like I nine no. I've been a new verse. It's comfortable to be like, I don't wanna fucking like I'm busy. I don't wanna never said that woman, and I can't be doing that shit. That's the thing by media thought was like, I'm a woman, and I will say, like I would never feel comfortable being like shut the fuck up sweetie in the app, but like played or whatever you're gonna turn on quite mode, because they're gonna be like, oh, you wanna talk sweetie. You know what I mean? I just feel like it would just aggravate and in instigate something that I don't wanna be a part of. I'm just like conditioned to be like smile at the ground put your headphones in, you know, answer a couple of questions. Talk about your day when they ask you really weirdly invasive questions about things, and, you know, you just polite because you're in a car. And at the end of the day, they can fucking kidnapped me. They also have the option to like say, like if you have luggage, like the client mode. And also, I need some help with my luggage and other things like that. And it's just like it's John talking to people anymore. You're just like giving command through an app and I try to paid enough or the shed. Yeah, they're already going through strikes right now because they're not getting paid enough for this shit. It's just so fucked at is thing. It's like rude like what other aspect, and I get it. I've been seeing a lot of people that are like, well, I mean, honestly, say majority of the people that I've seen speak about this are like against it because they think it's really fucking rude, and their drivers are just not getting paid enough. But also, seeing some people are like, well, I have social anxiety. And like I totally get that. And like you know I understand that. But I don't know. I just feel like gimme another situation where it's a formality that you set up where you're like, don't fucking speak to me. I can't think of one other service of. Fucking apt survey. I can't think of another service like that, and like, not that I'm saying that like that's wrong or whatever that's right. I don't know. I just feel weirdly uncomfortable about it. And also with the luggage thing, I can't tell you how many times I've taken an Uber from an airport. I ball, they're picking you up in an airport so they fucking. No, you're gonna have like something. But even if you're not like you're getting a ride to the airport anytime I have a suitcase and I never order Uber black. I'm always Uber x which is the road every single time. I have a suitcase the person in the driver never gets out of the car unless I have a suitcase. Jake it out of their car, and they immediately popped their trunk. And that's even asking for anything. You're going to the airport, or you're coming. Location airport, and like it's the just. No. And so, like it's just like the human decency is like already fucking there. Yeah. It's just really sure there have been some cases, where like on the, you know, like sat there and watched to struggle with a heavy something or other like yes. Sure that's happened. Belykh it just from my personal experience. I've just had nothing. But like, you know, just polite help there with that specific thing. I'm not to say that I haven't had very uncomfortable. Uber drives that may be feel unsafe. But I really I really just think that my inches ass would not wanna push like, don't talk to me, because I would feel like that would instigate someone that's already like. Angry or something you don't have to like abide by that, you know. Yeah. Like, what happens if the and then I saw some people because I guess it's already like out early in baiter something, and, like our someone was talking to like their Uber. They were driving. They were just like howling discussion about it, and they're like, will design me like you can't just be like Hello. Or they also verbally have to ask you like who the fuck you are. You know what I mean the game? And they were like can you do that? And they were like we literally have no fucking idea what we can do you mean they don't even know yet. So. Something. And they didn't even think through. Yeah. Like it. Right. Is very. No. I just think it's just be courteous, y'all. I don't know be nice to service workers in your life. Oh my God. Like, and they should be nice back. Of course like you know, if they can. Honestly, I mean. They might have been having like I can't even imagine. But whatever I can only imagine how like taxing being a new driver is live driver. I'm not just signaling over only magin how. What's driving all daylight? That's all sounds like fucking just like horrible. I know what I know. I don't drive so I don't get it on all the lake. When people tell me that they like love driving of it's relaxing. Cities. It's not relaxing knows like driving is relaxing when I'm not in the city. It's when it's like carting people around the city and like trying to fight with the buses and everything like that. It's people that come out in front of you walk in front, and the bikes. Yeah. Yeah. Thanks to you. Okay. That what's today's episode of the podcast is sponsored by me.

Your heart is still stuck in an era filled with low rise jeans and Missy Elliott songs on the radio only ten years ago, twenty ten was only ten years ago, nine that two thousand that's what we're talking to. Two thousands. That decade. It's technically than ten years ago. It was in that it's twenty two thousand nine out of here with your time. To watch. Seven that's not two thousand ten. This wrong from it out. No. It's wrong Chris, there's a difference. Difference between watching good beach and watching a show in twenty ten which was like sucking was show about jersey literally breaking. Please someone agree with me. The twenty tens are vastly different than the early two thousand okay. We're going to move on. There was a war anyway, to questions from patriot dot com slash coffee crucial. And this question is from a local by. That's as I'm applying to grad schools, all across country. And my partner is Helen nervous about potentially up. Rooting our lives and moving to summer, we have never been to we've been together for four years and have lived together for four years. And we have accumulated a lot of material things in have really set up camp in the city we live in. Also, we both have jobs here, and we would be moving with our dog aka compounded. Nerves can you all talk a bit about your experience for moving to Washington to Pennsylvania, where you guys nervous tips on moving further away from your home base? I think the difference is that we didn't have like jobs that we were like year. We did it and transitional time in our life when we just left college, and we immediately just packed up and moved. Yeah. We weren't. We didn't have a place, jobs or the jobs in that city. We had like, part time jobs, but like we weren't. They weren't like root issues that weren't like our college. So I can't really relate. There. However, in terms of having a lot of shit, we had a lot of shit, and we got rid of a lot of shit. It's just it's just way to really just clean out and be like, do I really, really need this? I don't know. You probably don't there's a lot of things you can get rid of. I also don't know. I mean depends on the size of your dog. I don't know what it's like to fly with the dog because if it's bigger, you know, there's spects to that. But is it a flying Aures? Yes. But I will say what is worth it? It's going to be credibly stressful in probably expensive. But when I decide you will feel so fucking good that you did it. And also, you could route your little roots grow those little bug trees in your new place with your partner and accumulate more shit if that's what you want. And if you are in the states, just make sure you pick one of the ones we listed in the ten top. That's a top ten top. Yeah, exactly definitely none that have been in the news. The next question is, actually, we got a lot of people asking about a certain YouTube situation feud thing in the beauty community, wink, wink nod, nod, I will not be discussing that beak. I don't wanna touch that just truly want to distance myself from that place. That's that at honestly, anything that I think has been thought before. That's that. Have you tried play started valley on the switch? I have not in the reason the reason I haven't is because I know that I will like it, and that I will feel really heartbroken. What animal crossing comes out, and I have absolutely no fucking time to like something like Rachel is also going to get into poke him on when it comes out this year. And so that's two commitments. That's a lot of. Yeah. Yeah, but I have heard that it's like something that I would really fuck with. But then I mean, we did talk to our one friend. And she was saying that it's not like animal crossing relate time passes when you're not playing, and then the guilt you into not being around those animals shit out of me like it's been a month with a fuck. If you've been going to shit. But it's like no time passes in the near just like, oh. So that is good. This is not a question, but it comes from our Twitter and it just says, guys Wallace sells a contraption to protect your hoagie, love to get your hot take on this, and it's called the sub safe, and it looks like a toothbrush travel container for your hokey. I have to say. Offended that it's called the sub safe, when that's a hoagie haven. Yes. You know what I mean? Like what's the word for safety? Hoagie holder, who yoga? Yeah. Come on, while sub safe you trying to go global or something with fug trying to go for subways brand. It looks like a glasses case, though. Honestly, it'd be some kind of ship that I would ask for, for Hannukah. Would you ever consider unprecedented, your YouTube videos, but disabling comments on the comments? Grossly don't really have anything to do with it. It's just the fact that I don't want to be on that platform anymore, even with these leaving part of life behind. I also was asked in like, you know, a couple of people that are asking about the recent stuff that's going on. Like why did I quit it just I know I've explained this to death. But if you are new just too short and sweet, it up, it made me deeply unhappy, and I didn't want to stay in a job for longer than six years, that made me deeply unhappy. But do I ever miss it some? I don't wanna lie. I don't miss it. But I miss sometimes having like, when you have a good video idea that would have been cute in twenty thirteen. You know what I mean? Like you get like an idea for something. It's like I don't have a platform for that anymore. There was a hitter toss with that statement. You know, that'd be cute. Twenty thirteen. Sometimes you'll have an idea for something. But like you're not having the idea that might be good would never be enough of a nugget to send me back down that rabbit hole of. D unhappy this deeply unhappy. Very sorry, if that is upsetting, but also like the podcast is, like Phil debt hole. If you will stuff me, also I am starting to like, make like a couple, I have some things in the work for my patriot. Also shop. What patriot com slash shop are leading some of it will be video related content. Not all YouTube, probably just my hands of doing things because, like you don't need to see my face to watch me paint. But so it's kinda like that's also like feeling that creativity. Bubble. But now I've just found better things to do with my time to be honest, and also better waster money. That's the t-, how many chunks, would it would chunk chunk of wood chunk could chunk would four teen teen? Yes. On the next one right after that is I made my own hollow roles as begin while listening to see to see what are your favorite things, two evil hall a really enjoy cream cheese in hunting, a photo here. If you wanted to see. Wonderfully golden golden nipples amazing. What do you enjoy to eat besides just plain because it's fantastic? Chong and really just, you know bite into it. Sup-. We used to be crazy. A little bit crazy locks Momon. Honestly, I'll I'll I'll eat it plain a law. It's just the appetizer. No, it's dawn trae ham desert. Did you keep up with the rest of good trouble season? One if so what your thoughts I did not though. I have heard that it did get good. But I mean, if they don't write the BI phobia, the now I'm not gonna fucking watch it have the chunks done anything, especially cute lately. And you know what? My actually slammed my fist out on the table. I want to because squeezy did something unspeakably cute. Yes. Non-speak -able. So Chris, and I have alarms go off in the morning and his are definitely more serious than mine because he has to actually leave to go to office. And I just have to grumble out of then in, like over to my, so it's not as pertinent if you will. So there's oftentimes where the alarm goes off and Chris snaps awake. And is like sitting there on his phone, or whatever like waiting. To get ready to get coffee or whatever, and I'm still asleep, and I was dead asleep. And I felt something near my arm, a light gentle, tickle and squeezy was gently waking me up by tickling me with his whiskers and this has never happened before. And then he climbed onto me like Lila style in the morning because Lila when she hears the alarm. I was surprised that she didn't show up out of Jones. Sometimes she was just like a rock under our bed. And sometimes she's like, hey, bitches. I'm awake. And now you are too one. The alarms go off. She's like, okay, it's time to fucking annoy them, but just doesn't even annoyance though. I just think that's like legit. She just jumps all over us and usual bladder. She put on her bladder or like her Polly, is like on the space in between a rib like she like starts to need your bare skin. Something. So she's more, aggressive squeezy was so gentle, like a whisper just tickling. The it was like right in the space. Like all my like side like on my rib like the kind of like it's a ticklish spot, you know. And like, and then I looked over. Chris UC MS washed off, like I was watching the entire thing unfold because like hopped up and of just sat there looking like a weirdo for like thirty minutes. And then he decided to do some things with you know, he knew was not the norm. Doing something wacky and wild here. But please, I'm sticking my neck out for and it was very well appreciated. And then I took very cute pictures of him. Yes. So I was very proud of that moment. Fuck. Mary kill animal crossing, GT, five rid. I don't know of Mary and we'll crossing fuck. She TA and kill read, even though I'm having a ball. I've just very loyal to GTE as it's been, I'd honestly say the same thing. Yes. Yes, Mary, I mean considering play read this. Yeah. I mean, like, and I mean, I've just been there for all the story while you're playing, and it's it's a fantastic game but like story is more fun. And unders also a lot more to continue to do after I read them lines trash, it's GTA was, like my foray into gaming spawned and unbreakable bond with a friend that just against all odds. We always end back up. It loose Antos questions from us says Hello been Torino's conversation about TV show endings in the last episode dummy thing about the Gilmore girls, I'm. Qualls. I am a die-hard do more girls fan like y'all. But after watching the first episode of a year in the life on that people fall, the that was so distraught that I still have not finished a year in the life to this day, shoot. I ever finish it or just denied ever existed. Oh, do you like I just been really good about, like voiding spoilers about it, because we did a Lepas it? So I'm going to meet. Yeah, I guess we did, maybe you don't care because, like, sometimes like if something is really bad. But then you just continue to read about it. Tell him, sir. Joe's. I don't know. Like I can't recommend it. I honestly fucking can't recommend it if anything I would just recommend reading synopsis what happens. And then you make the, the judgment of like do I want to believe that this happened in the time line on? Stuff that way. I. The high have no desired ever watched that again. Did watch it one other time like we did? Because normally we watch and we actually have it in a while we would watch like Gilmore girls like, you know, people like watch friends like all the time. There's that's us go more grows. And we didn't do that. Like the last two years. Probably honestly, it just burned us. And we watched the year in the life, obviously, when that came out the first time and then we did when we did our next watch through and it just made us mad. And so I probably will never do that, again, if I ever were to watch the series again, I don't know. I would say, like in my opinion. In my opinion. Don't I'm one of those people were like, I, I like I can't separate in my mind all the time, like all information that you get about something in a canon universe that is like out there. You know what I mean? Like, okay, for example, like the people that like Kim separate themselves from like curse child events. You know, even though it's not technically a part of the main saga, it's kind of is the neared, and like for me. That's how I feel about spin off shows that will give you nuggets of information for like a regular show. Like I literally stopped watching the legacy show, which was the vampire diaries spin off because it just wasn't doing it for me. And it got really fucking weird bad CGI. And like I don't know. I still read about it a little bit when they give you like a nugget from the vampire diaries universe, and lake I still consider that part of the time line, which is weird. But then some. Sometimes I get mad about that. I don't want to like interrupt like what was a complete thing that's play off. Sometimes kind of bucket suck and revivals like. They do like I don't know. When you feel about a revival anymore going rose. Really, fucked me. Yeah. Like. And also boy, meets world did the same thing where like the viable of that, where like they really fucked with Angela, and I was pissed about it. Some good stuff. It's just like they. Sometimes you just gotta let good things be did you know that is absolutely? What will never happen when there's money to be made on the good things at happened money will never allow good things. Yes. So no. I don't know how I feel about it. Like on the one hand like it's interesting to see, like where people end up and stuff. But then also like it destroyed Roy's character. I know that she kind of had tendencies throughout the whole thing, but they really amplified those bad parts of her and this, and they also made it seem like Luke, and Laura lie, literally didn't have a single conversation that was important about their relationship for many. Seven years or something in the. So that's dumb. So I don't know. But then you get a nugget of Jess, also pretty little wires just like, yeah, they're doing. Hey steaks, and that one is going to break up everything that happened at the end of pretty little almost like here for reboots more now because it's just like a fresh thing on the same kind of story. So at least like it's not technically, like attached to what once was but at the same time, a reboot makes me deeply uncomfortable. Have like I just trees memories. And there's classes. Oh. I don't know. I've got that's how people feel about, like almost every single show. But I don't know it just made me more angry than excited satisfied.

Sean fantasy editor in chief of the ringer. And this is the big picture conversation show about expanded universe's. I've got a two part show today in the first part, I'll be talking to my colleague mile Surrey about the movie Zaman then right after that. I'll be joined by the director of Zam, David Sandberg, very talented Swedish fellow who made a couple of movies for this one among them and Bill creation Sandberg's taking a step up with Zan, which is of course, in the DC EU, which is a series of movies that have included aquaman and Batman versus superman. Dawn of Justice and to join me talk about D C N Zam is as I said mile, sorry miles. What's up? Thanks for having me talk. I'm really glad you're here. Because DC finds itself at an interesting inflection point. I would say I thought she was a very fun and entertaining movie, but it did not really feel like anything that had come in the DC universe before. And you kind of explain to me. What should I am is? And what it's trying to do. Sure. I mean, I kind of had the. To do the same thing after watching the movie because like right around the time the post credits scene with a evil Caterpillar happened. I was kinda like I've no idea what any of this stuff is. So thankfully, Mike does have a a piece on the ring dot com. A great website kind of breaking down the kind of Kazan origins. But yeah, he's he was actually originally called captain marvel and like in the movie there was like a wizard named 'schisms who gave him like all these superpowers. But when he sorta got folded into DC comics because marvel had its own captain marvel he then became Zam. But the whole spiel is basically the same thing like the wizards powers you activate it by saying Zam, and then I guess in the big conversion you just become buff, Zachary Levi. Yeah, I didn't even know buff Zachary Levi was going to be a thing that I would ever have to talk about. I can't say when I was watching Chuck ten years ago. That this ever crossed my mind that he would be a superhero, I think Tony Lee. This movie is pretty significantly different from superman vs Batman and the Justice league films and even wonder woman, which I thought was you know, is a very charming and obviously hugely successful movie. But there is a lightness in the tone, and it's not quite as operatic goofy. As was l-. You know, what did you make of the kind of movie that Sam was trying to be yet? No, I thought it was fun at kind of had like almost throwback Amblin entertainment coming of age vibe like something you'd see from like Amblin in like the eighties. But with the caveat that instead of a kid going on venture or something he can just become a superhero. But I thought it was a it was it was kind of an appropriate tone for for the kind of here that this guy is and I kind of like that, you know, a kid like a teenager becoming Kazan like he has like a bit of an aimlessness to him at the beginning. Like, there's not the sort of great power with great with great power comes great responsibility type speech. You just sorta has to learn things on the fly Yemen. One of the first things that the character does after he realizes his powers as he just goes to a convenience store in buys beer and candy. And you know, I it, you know, the movies clearly pitched as sort of what if big, but superhero, and it's very effective in showing us like maybe not with the real world ramifications would be because it's a little bit different in tone in the real world. But some of the like aspirations that you have as an adolescent, and the things that you wish you could do when you were thirteen sham does for the first hour of this movie, and the movie ultimately just becomes a story about like friendship and the way that we act bigger and older than we are. And what we can get away with in that time. And then it does turned into a little bit of a superhero movie. What did you make of the kind of balancing of those tones? Yeah. I mean, I think I did prefer sort of the the first half of the move. In that respect, as you know, there are so many superhero movies out there. And I think for the most part it's sorta gets derivative to when the movie gets the guy discovers his powers, you know, like Peter Parker, like scaling skyscrapers type of thing. But it was fun for Suzanne because it felt very like very genuine response. What if a fourteen year old kids suddenly had powers like, yeah? He would try to buy beer. He would go to script strip club in like beam about the chicken wings because this is a PG thirteen movie. You know, if he's in a world where superman Batman exists, and he doesn't really know. What to do is? You just if he can't find people to save is he just going to he's going to try to make cash and become a YouTube star. It was an interesting approach. But I think like I preferred that half of the movie versus like, the Mark strong shows up with seven CGI deadly sin, archetypes, or whatever. And it's time to punch him a lot. Yeah. I agree. I don't think part was active. It's funny because it feels like a movie like this, which is not exactly a reinvention. But is a is a reconsidering of what these kinds of movies can be still does arrive and its conclusion at the notion that needs to feature a lot of punching and a lot of fighting the bad guy. I'm curious to see if as we grow inside, the D C E U, I guess much like Zam. If they'll ever change the the the approach that they take having kind of the final showdown in the final forty five minutes of the movie that was also one of my struggles. Honestly with wonder woman, which I thought as I said was really clever and well made and then ultimately just turned into Diana fighting a demon monster who was played by David through Lous. What do you make of the decisions that DC is now making to singular is each of their movies? I mean, it's interesting because like, you know, they they did a pretty quick pivot from like fast-tracking their Justice league movie which end up being like relative to the expectations a bit of a bomb for them. Also, it didn't really track critically. But you know, they're kind of like making these films that have this very little interconnectivity like aquaman was only really playing the seeds for Auckland to and I guess a trench spinoff, which I could go on like a twenty minutes handed about the trench about the trend. Can't wait for the trench. And like kind of the same thing with wonder woman sequel in feels that way, which is. To you know, if it does well enough at the box office like affiliates just leading into sham two or maybe like a black atom movie, which is like a sham villain. That's supposed to be played by Dwayne Johnson. If you look at like the C projects that are in the air like a rebooted suicide squad, James Gunn, new bad movie. Perhaps a flash movie there's all these other projects like the one glaring omission is there are no plans to make like a Justice league to and not to say that would never happen again. But clearly like the D C you right now is content. Just kind of throwing stuff out there and seeing what resonates with audiences yet. If you look down there slate, we talked about this a little bit during the release of aquaman, but I was just in add an in Vegas at cinema Khan. And they were very proud of the approach that they were taking telling their stories because the next the next handful of movies. They have is of course, Zam, and you know, they also have joker which is coming in October. Which also feels quite standalone seems to have virtually nothing in common with the movie Lakesha Zam. And then there's also a birds of prey which is. Theon story of sort of five superhero team that will also include Margot Robbie Harley Quinn, and that totally and visually looks completely different from those other two movies. And so they've taken this decision to not just make that flash movie and not just make whatever inevitable green lantern movie. And with the same kind of stormy visualises that that Zack Snyder created, but to just kind of individually each story, which is what a lot of comic books are actually a lot of comic books have separate illustrators. They have separate writers their tones are quite different amazing spider. Man could be quite different from x men and superman could be quite different from, you know, detective comics, and what's going on with that, man. And of course, I guess next year late next year. We'll have the Batman which Matt Reeves Batman movie. Do you know, your your very closely track the comp films for us is it more interesting to you of all of this the fits together or do you like it better? If it stands alone and the movies get to be what they are. Well, I. Kind of like maybe I just have a bit of a marble fatigue. Just because it feels like we've been preparing for endgame like just just forever. But yeah, I kind of like this approach because you know, like, if something doesn't, you know resonate with with audiences like I personally wasn't as big of a fan as as wonder woman as other people were which is fine. You know, I I like parts of it. But, but you know, for the most part people really enjoyed it. And I think you know, it's an interesting approach. I think what will probably be most interesting is with wonder woman command and Zam they've all been pretty well received. And they've made a good amount of money. I'm curious what happens like how the DC EU responds when something flops with critics audiences in the box office. Do they like shake it off? Or if it's like, if it's bracing a certain tone, like, you know, let's say joker is actually quite terrible. And and you know, it's like a Scorsese prestige that. Just kind of doesn't work like will the DC you kinda void being that experimental. Again. I I'm curious to see what happens when there's kind of like a speed bump on the road for them. I am too is an interesting question because it does seem like in with Shas AM and most likely joker and handful of these other movies. They don't come with that two hundred and fifty million dollar production price tag. You know, they're definitely smaller movies with more modest ambitions, at least in terms of the execution of the movie. And so the risk is lower. So if let's say joker is not the sort of world-beating, cultural colossus that many would have us believe this week. That's okay. I think that they could probably survive that. And it's an you're right. It is a really interesting pivot away from all of that interconnectiveness. Is there anything else about his that you you really liked and you responded to? Yeah. I really like that, you know, I thought Zachary Levi was was just so good at like kind of capturing basically like, you know, a kid in a swollen dealt spot ended it so well like there were times where you almost felt to childlike for guy who's still like fourteen years old, but you could tell he was just having such a blast. And and yeah, I would have never expected Chuck would be like a swollen superhero. But I never expected Jim from the office to like, you know, make some hard movie also become buffer like Michael bay film. So I I guess, you know sick. I'm stars. They can transform. Yeah. Could you cast a sitcom debauche sitcom figure into into a superhero movie right now is there? Anybody springs to your mind? Is Jim Parsons our next. Green lantern. You think? Oh god. No, no. I'm trying to think of like if someone from parks and rec ado that transformation that isn't Chris Pratt. Because I mean, he's he's just forget about this point. He's he's like a discount printing. Frazier. But he he has done that as well. I mean, I guess maybe if if Adam Scott were cast as as galactic that would probably that. That's as close as we're gonna get signed me up miles. Thank you for breaking down. All am. I appreciate it. Thank you. Now. Let's go to my conversation with director, David Sandberg. But first, let's hear a word from our sponsor.

Delighted to be joined by David Sandberg. David. Thank you for being here. Thank you for having David. I have a question you're from Sweden. Do they have DC comics Sweden? They sure do. Yeah. It's kind of interesting though in that. They didn't really advertise it as much in that. Okay. This is marvel this is DC at least not what I can remember because I've been sort of fascinated by this whole sort of DC versus marvel that some fans are, you know, into because I didn't really realize that when I was a kid. I had this comic book that I really love that was superman and Spiderman fighting together to me that wasn't anything. Weirder of like, oh, the two from two universe to minosos. Yeah. They're all superheroes. Of course. There was that some sort of crossover event that happened to the two publishers. So were you deeply familiar 'schisms a kid was it something I wasn't. No, he's. Yeah. I didn't really learn about him until I got this job. Basically, you know, it was the studio that the pitched it to me. They asked if I would be interested in and they said that it's basically big, but with superpowers sounded awesome. But yeah, I'd like I'd heard the name and I'd seen pictures of him. And or you know, he shows up little here and there, but yeah, he's kind of fallen off to the wayside. Yeah. I wanna talk about that. But let's let's go back a little bit. So obviously you've made two films before this in America. As I understand it. You basically got your start because you had a viral hit short film yet entered into a full Inc. Yeah. My wife, and I we we made a little short in our home in Gothenburg for the lights out that we made for no money at all two and a half minutes short made it for luck online contest. But after we uploaded to YouTube a couple of months after that, it just went viral that we just saw it. You know, I saw someone on Reddit linked to it. I was like, oh some undiscovered are short. And we went to like them you into check the views, and it was like seventeen thousand. I was like holy. I mean that is so many people then like a minute later. Her it was seventy thousand and then it just kept going and going and going like like the day after or something we were sitting there sort of refreshing the page to see go over a million. And it didn't stop is kept going in all telling that I've heard of people like getting representation in Hollywood through things like this. And I think it was actually the morning after I mentioned that love that. We got our first Email from like a manager over here. And then we got tons of emails from agents and producers and studios and actors and all kinds of people, and yeah that just started our whole journey was that the goal when you enter the contest was your expectation that you would win. I thought like something like this wouldn't happen with just two and a half minutes. Short like, the plan was basically that you know, I tried getting money from the Swedish Film Institute in places like this for to make longer shorts. And they you know, they were like. Oh, you're too inexperienced for for the professional money or or you too too old for beginner money. And it was like well one of my supposed to do. So then I started making things on our own and the plan was basically to all right? We'll keep doing these little shorts, and then hopefully, we'll get some money to a longer short. And maybe that can eventually turned into like a Swedish feature and then somewhere way down the line. Maybe you get a shot at Hollywood. But instead. Yeah, I was like I keep saying that it's like hitting the warp zone in super. Mario brothers were. Oh used to jump to the end level right away. Yeah. It's so fascinating. Did you know that you wanted to make sort of genre driven stuff when you were? You know, the expectation you make us film in Sweden was that you do John remove your hormones, and that that's what I was trying to make make horror movies in Sweden. Like, I that's what I did with my friends, you know, when we were younger, but I think that's part of why didn't work out in Sweden because I've. AM sort of John Rao fan, and I liked very, you know, more audience pleasing movies. That's kinda what I wanna make in Sweden. You know, since it is sort of government grants and all of this. It's a bit like, you know, they make more sort of important films about sort of society and people, and you know, a lot of alcoholics, and, you know, you know, it was probably a better fit for Hollywood. Just because I have a more commercial kind of inclination. I guess so did you do the tours and visit all the studios and say like I'd like to expand lights out into a fulling feature. Well, what happened was that this as I had we had reps here. They were like, hey, can you guys come over? Here. We have a bunch of people. We'd like you to meet, and it was like we don't have any money we can't fly to doing professionally. What were you how you earn your living? So that was she was working in a group group home half for people with disabilities. And I was sort of a free lancing animator. I guess 'cause I had you know, when I was a teen or early. As I guess I tried to make movies with France. But now all of a sudden, they all had jobs and stuff. So it got harder to together together. So I started doing animation because that was something I could do all by myself. And there was nothing to stop me, you know, and I actually had some viral success with a short that I made Swedish. But because it wasn't Swedish should only got you know, Scandinavia, but that led me to be able to actually get some jobs doing like animated little commercials and things like that like 'cause it was comedy, basically, so company saw that. And like, hey, we like your your humor in your style. Can you make a little commercial for us for for online? So I was trying to do that. But it wasn't really enough to pay the bills, but I tried did you have a culture shock when you were suddenly a Hollywood filmmaker like that's a radical change. I mean, I had never been on a professional film set before until I was the director of you know, is kind of like that night. Maher when you're like realizing you're standing in front of a crowd of people, and you're supposed to do a presentation in your in your underwear kind of thing because you know, I, yeah, I'd never been on a professional film said I didn't really know how it worked. I've always been interested in and try to read about it and look wash a lot of like behind the scenes things and listen to commentaries on DVD's. But there's only so much you can learn from that. So, you know, before we started shooting lights out I had to take my first AD aside like ask him like sa- window. I say action. 'cause I how did he respond well dominant. He was very nice about it sort of explained wasn't get this guy out of here. I had hired him. So. Yeah. No. But you know. Okay. So they say sound speed. And then like, yeah, the camera operator says said ready, and then you can say action. You know, you have a lot of self doubt at this time or waves. I still do every day. No, no, tons of self doubt. And. Yeah. In the words, even some friction with some of the crew were it's like, I think there was a little bit of a feeling of a work in for this guy. You know, and kind of slumming it in a five million dollar horror movies though, it was a bit of friction and I had to kind of prove myself a little bit. And I remember having an argument with some people in the camera department about cameras, whereas like, no, I actually know how cameras work maybe I don't know like all the stuff about how films that's work. But I still know how to tell stories, and I know some technical things like cameras work and things like that. Because I've had I've done a lot of stuff on my own what? Was the most surprising thing about actually making your first feature. What does what does something that? You actually didn't know that. You're like, oh, I didn't know it works this way. Well, one thing was that. I thought, you know, the schedule is to schedule it if you blow that you're screw, you know, each day is like, okay, we're shooting these scenes today. And I was like, well if we're not shooting the season, they're not gonna end up in the movie. So I would be I would stress out like crazy. And like when we had very little time left where seen was. Well, let's just do it in one set up. You know, let's just do. With no cuts just put a camera and get it. So we get it. But then I realized that movie schedules are bit flexible, if you don't get it one day, you can sort of make up for it. And do it another day or what I also realize that you can even ask the studio of like getting an extra day or two like it's not impossible because you know, schedules and budgets in movies are guesswork. You know, it's interesting. I feel like you're giving away trade secrets here. Like, you're not supposed to say that the studio can keep you in line. Right. Oh, yeah. You have to stick to this. So what about jumping to your next feature which is obviously bigger and part of sort of like an expanded universe. And I feel like that ties in a little bit dishes AM to that was such a pleasant experience because by then for animal creation. Now, I knew how films at worked, and like I learn so much and now it was kind of the same thing another horror movie, but we had you know, almost three times the budget now. So there were new things like I hadn't shot on the set before you actually build on a sound stage and build the sets because lights was all in location. But overall that was super pleasant because just like all right? I'm working with people. I worked with before. I know how this works. We have plenty of money to do what we wanna do. And that was. Yeah. And then with Chisholm it was kind of like making first movie again because it was such people or because it was a bigger bigger. Lot of the same people, which was great too. To the able to, you know, go into it with people, you know, and people who also stepped up in a way like costume design at the Butler who I work with on. Abbott creation cheat never done a superhero movie before like designing a super suit and doing all that or production. Designed Jennifer spans like felt like we all got to step up together when you came under Suzanne was the script done. Did you know what the film is going to be in that way? Well, what happened was when the called me, you know, they they've been wanting to make Sam before quite a while and Dino that is I'm interested in that. Because he's obviously as you said not one of the top five figures in that world letting why that wants to make him is because he's its ultimate wish. Fulfillment. You know? It's a kid who gets to become a superhero, and you know, every kid dreams about that. And just the the concept of it just opens up so many possibilities because just the the big aspect of it kid who gets to be on. Adult. It's like, oh, it gives you all these ideas. Of course, kid would try this would try that. But and you add superpowers to that. It's just you know, it's endless possibilities. So I mean, I absolutely understand why they want to do it. But when I came on board, they you know, they called me up in the said, you know, we have the script. That's basically shows embers is black atom which is his longtime nemesis. And I think they were finding that it was like a too much for one movie that I was better to just let let's give him his proper. You know, the space that he needs to to properly do this. And that that's when they called me. So, you know together with Henry Gaetan and wanted to studio in the producer. We would sort of get together and talk about our of you know, how do we change the script? You know, we have to take out like, Adam. And then, you know, we'll give more space to savannah than the bad guys. So we would get together every week talk it through. Than go off right pages. And we get together and have notes on those pages. And it was pretty cool very collaborative. Are you the kind of person who watches a lot of films before starting something and starts to pull from different films eve experience in the past not not that I watch a lot of films. It's more that you know. I remember films. Very well. I have quite a a film. Ick memory. I guess which my wife finds funny because whenever I know a song. She's like, all right. What movie was it? Like because that's why I know songs that was in magnolia. Yeah. So yeah, I it all gets stored in years. Always not like I have to sit down rewatch and you use that beforehand to talk to people working on the films talked to the screenwriter say and looking for. End. In his specially with the effects and things was like, oh, this is basically that shot in Terminator two when the T one thousand gets, you know comes back together and rises up in a lot of reference to references to shots in other movies. Like, yeah, I wanted to explode like the buildings explode in war of the worlds Spielberg's, you know, when the tripods shoot through the building. Yeah. A lot of that. So that's that's that's a common move for you. Yeah. I mean that that's what I've had to learn over here in Hollywood is how to communicate what you have in your head because back in Sweden doing no budget films doing animations by myself. I didn't have to do that. Because I was doing everything, you know, from the music to the visual facts, and the editing, and then when you get here that has been the big thing for me to learn is how to communicate that to other people. And a lot of times words isn't enough. So you have to do, you know, little drawings Alanna? Animations which you know, it's come in handy that I know how to do those things and sometimes even on this movie. I just shoot myself playing with action figures, basically like, oh, yeah. He flies in like this. And he lands doodle angles. And then we'd like cut that together and give that to previous like, this is what I want. Then they do it in CG. You know? So we could is that is that a common strategy for superhero. Previous like rather than story board or something you you'll just shoot action figures. That's a fascinating thing. That's common. It's like, yeah. Whatever you need to do to quickly convey something because it's you know, it it takes so many interational of. No, if you just explain something, you know, it you in your head is like, oh, this is the clearest explanation ever because you see that. And then you get it back. And it's like, oh, yeah. Of course that that's how they interpreted and you have to go again. And then you have to go again, and again, and again until it gets closer to what you want. You know? Like super tiny things. Yeah. I wanna gray line down here and one up here, and then you get back into several gray lines like the thickness is not what you magin. And 'cause there's a lot of things that in your head is just obvious. But, but they're so obvious in your head that you have problems with communicating I really admired the tone of the movie, and I think it's a it's a bit different from the previous DC films. And there's obviously been a lot of conversation about that. I'm curious how much of that was set out early on to say this has to be lighter. It has to be meta at times has to be kind of emotionally lead on its feet. While the great thing was that. There was no mandate from the studio about anything. It was just like let's make the best Zama will the that. We can. And she's m the character just naturally lends himself to a lighter tone more fun tone because it is you know, again, the wish fulfillment. And it's it's the kid, you know, a lot of superheroes. They get their powers when they're adults and the way down by. Responsibilities and here you have an irresponsible kid getting it. So the tone was just there in the material. And then what I liked about. It was that. Yeah. That there was no mandate to like we have to set up these things that are going to happen in the universe. Or you have to include these things were not influ these things we would just focused on making a good ches ammo. And then of course, we could reference the universe as much as we wanted input in little Easter eggs and all these things because it is said in the DC universe is that a relief to you to not be bound to this sort of long continuity that the gel store inside of. Yeah. And just the fact that you know, we got to cast everyone in this movie. Like, they wasn't like, oh, you know, this other director has already cast these people, you know. So I if felts very much like, okay, we got to your own thing. And it was the same thing with what I loved about animal creation that even though it is a sequel in this part of the universe. It was a prequel with all new characters a new store. So it didn't feel like oh, this is. A puzzle piece in a bigger thing. It just felt like this is this movie. You couldn't recast Belleville. Choose we had to go did actually redesign that just because James actually felt that she was almost too obviously evil looking, you know, like the first design of its we actually softened her features a little bit creation just too because otherwise because it was almost like a why would a child them put that room? So we we we softened her features. What about Zachary Levi worded? How did you land on him? I think he was surprising to us for a lot of people when they heard about it. He was suppressing choice for me as well. Because I I actually didn't. I wasn't familiar with him. I'd never seen Chuck which is probably a good thing because I didn't have any preconceived notions. But I mean, we just had a really long casting process and met with or got self tapes from over hundred people. Because. Yes, casting his just so important. You know, you wanna find these people who just embody these characters or really get these characters because you know, when you're on the said gonna run into so many issues that you don't wanna worry about like having to pull up reforms out of someone because you're have so much other problems to deal with and sack. You know, when I saw his addition tape right away. It was he's the guy he was actually auditioning for different character. But when I saw him it was like, he's the guy. So I pushed him to the studio and they flew him out here. And I think what I love about him was that he he has this very childlike enthusiasm and excitement. And I think that made us realize as well that that's what it is to be a kid because a lot of actors, you know, they're adults. They dumb themselves down. No to play a kid while he's more about the excitement than the enthusiasm. Which is something you kinda lose when you become adult of. Fortunately. But yeah, no. It was quite a process before we found him. And and we had this rule that if you wanna be Sam have to come in addition. Because even though you have actors who have been in one hundred moves before you've never seen them play a child. So that was something that we really wanted to see that you could do that's really interesting. What about the rest of the cast? And there's a lot of people that I had hadn't seen before this. I was hit a lot of kids. I imagine you had to spend far and wide very much. So I mean, the the the first the two easiest wants to casper graceful in place, Mary because I worked with her on on them creation. And then Jack Dillon Grazer was actually the move the studio new line. They were they were like, hey, we just shot this movie. It's there's some great kids in that movie. Check it out and see if anyone is good for Billy or Freddie or saw that. And then yeah, I saw Jack. And he was just she was Freddie, you know, he has this really smart fast. Talking kid who just and he's hilarious. He's a really good actor. He is. Yes. Yeah. No. He he's a good improviser while him in the sack would just riff on things and change things up, which would crack me up. So I, you know, do take after take just to see what we get because you can't really just you don't know if you've gotten everything yet zoo, basically keep going till you feel like okay, they're there. They're probably not gonna come up with anything more after this. That's a that's breeze. Interesting thing, it's sort of like how loose can you be in a movie like this, which has a lot of FX this big sort of hierarchy of telling. So did you do that? Did you improvise a lot on the set? Yeah. I mean, it's not like full lion over recession. They're following the script, but they're adding their own flares in their own little jokes in there and stuff like that. But yeah, I mean for regular non heavy via fax heavy scenes, we'd keep a lose not sort of storyboarding, you know, just work it out on the day, which is the more fun way to do it. Because with all the the the big action have to work it out so far in advance. And you have to do this previous animation, and you cut that together, and you watch that over and over. So by the time, you know, comes to actually shoot at your already tired of. 'cause because you know, what it is. And it's just very technical shoot. A swap only these little tiny pieces at a time. Because like all right wish shooting this piece today because this other pieces CGI this piece is on a blue screen stage. This little piece is a second unit shots. It gets very split up which is not fun for the actors as while not only do they have to keep track of everything, but you get kinda loss. I know with Mark strong. We started shooting a lot of those things with him. And then we had a scene where he he's talking to the wizard where has big sort of speech to him. And it was like, oh, finally like making acting in a scene like a full thing is that the most challenging part about making a movie that is this big is just trying to maneuver all of those different pieces of the time. It takes and. Yeah, all the visual effects is like had the more spectacular. It looks onscreen. The more boring probably was to shoot because it just takes forever. And it's just so much planning. And you get kind of sick of, you know, an and it's weird as well that you don't really see things the what the will. Actually, look like until the movie's complete basically and there were because it takes so long to finish these via fax. So they were even some shots were like, I cut them. You know, pretty because I was like, I don't know if the the effects will actually get there in time. And like if it doesn't them we're going to have something that looks bad in the movies. Let's just play it safe and cut these little things, you know, what happens when you have a cut. Do you have to show it to the studio and also to sort of the DC creative council like what is that process? Like, yeah. I mean, I've I have a tendency to show a cut very early to do because you, you know, acquitted DJ rule sounding you get ten weeks to do a director's cut. And during that time, you can you know, you don't have to let the studio in anything like it's all up to you who gets to see it. But I have a tendency to show it pretty early like Matama creation. I showed like four weeks in. I think this one was probably similar four and a half five weeks or something like that just to. Gets there. Just to see what their feedback is in their input, partly because you get kind of lost, you know. So you want to have someone outside come in and see and pick out the things that you were maybe missing because you're so lost in it. But also like if they're going to have notes or something then let's deal with it early rather than like, go all the way down a path. And then find out like, oh, they they're not okay with that. Did you find that you had to maneuver a lot of things once you after you did that for assembly, no nominee? I mean, very good relationship with everyone. It was cool that even you know, Walter Hamadeh who's been an executive new Lenin. And I've worked with all my movies during the making of this. He became the head of DC. So it's like it was all people I knew when we have a good working relationship. So the wasn't anything hard. Really you mentioned at the beginning of our conversation that you'd like to make off. From the movies. So wondering if you're now the films that you're making or the ones that you thought you would be making if you ever had a chance to kind of do the Hollywood thing absolute. Yes, this is this is where you wanna be. Yeah. I mean, I I I wanna make movies that are a good time at the movies, you know, and it's so rewarding with har- movies. And with this one is pretty much a comedy, you know, there's a horridness too. I did notice you have some gotta have a little bit of everything. But it's just so rewarding to sit in in in with an audience in the here, the laughter's screams or applause, sometimes. And it's yeah, I like making like popcorn movies. You know? What's your hope are you hoping to stay working in the DC universe of do? You have other original films. You wanna do I wanna do a little bit of everything? I mean, there are so many John I wanna explore as well. Like, I've always been big science fiction fan love to. I wanna do more Horace while I'm not certainly not done with that. And. Yeah, I mean, we'll see what happens with the whole. I mean, the thing with the mood like this. It's just such a huge commitment. You know as two years of of of your life with you know, like with Annabelle and lights out. You know, you can move do a movie like that every year and with a superior movie, you can't good when when did you sign onto Zam it was during post production of Annaba Craciun? You know studio was very happy with how turned out. How tested that's when they called me on. It was it's kinda weird. Because it's it's not really that definitive moment of all your hired. It's more. Like you start talking about it. And like you start having meetings, and those meetings, get a little more and more sort of advanced and it's weird because even like things like green lights and things like that. It can happen. Pretty late. Like I remember on lights out. We we were in our production office sort of don't getting everything ready, and we still didn't have the official green light. And it's like, and I was talking to to someone there. Like, we have the office and everything Ari agreeing. Let's like, and they were like, you know, someone had worked on water for elephants or whatever they were saying that we were basically shooting had the big train. We had everything before we got a green light. So it's like, it has just a lot looser than you think you know, that is process that is fastened. Eating if you haven't seen his maybe turn off this podcast because that's on ask a couple of questions about the future of the treselle movies that are related to what happens at the end. So you know without saying too much. You do set up the possibility of basically a wider. She's Amion verse. Specifically a lot of characters that maybe people wouldn't expect at the end of the movie. Yeah. And I'm curious if you feel like you feel that you need to be the person that tells that story if it goes for 'cause there's it sets up the potential for a lot. Yeah. I mean it does. I yeah. I mean, we'll see how it develops really? Because it's. Yeah. People are all right away. They're like hold. You wanna do 'em to like, maybe like, it feels like I've been so focused on this and just getting this finish and getting out there that it's it's kinda like, you know, you asking someone who just ran a marathon. Like, hey, do you wanna run another marathon, living, breath know? You know? So yeah, I don't know. We'll see what happens. But yeah, there's certainly more. You could do you feel the weight of momentum's, although in your career where you sound like I have to follow this up with something. I think this is the first time where I feel like okay can actually take a breather because you know, previously during post on lights out. I had already been attached to about creation because of psycho. Yeah. Let's go on during post on creation. I was already tested this because it's like all right? I'm in Hollywood this my chance, let's not slowdown. But but that's a little crazy because like. Lights out came out while I was shooting Annaba creation. So I had we'd like one day of shooting. We just had to quit a little earlier. So I could go to the premier here in Hollywood, which was like such a Hollywood lives like rabble early after guts premier my other movie. No. But it's finally like after this feels like I think I need to just take a moment. So this is the first time where a have a movie coming out, and I'm not already working on the next movie. So yeah, I wanna take easy see family. You got a vacation plan. What are you going to? I wanna hang around at home. I haven't been home in and and quite a while. What's your house? What's your relationship to sort of the Swedish phone community at this stage because you really like catapulted into Hollywood one. Yes. Because I mean, we didn't you know? And I we never made a professional movie in Sweden. He never got into that community. And I think maybe a lot of people in Sweden don't even realize that I am Swedish and his wit. 'cause we even heard of someone was telling me about that. There's this community of like Hollywood Swedes because there are a lot of Swedish actress like at least you'll be candor Joachim in Alexander Skarsgard, and you know, all these people up, and apparently they have get togethers that I've heard about how Swedes in Hollywood, but we've never been invited. But I think it is nothing because you weren't in though, they all of it is all that thing. Like, they all came here sort of the same path through Swedish movies, and then got here while you know, I we just suddenly found ourselves here and have no connection to the Swedish film industry. It was actually funny because I was asking I met the federal wrestle while ago who directed the girl in the spider's web. And I was asking him like what's it like shooting and sweet? Eden because I'm from Sweden. But I've never shopped there, you know, that's so fascinating. David. I never episode of this show by asking filmmakers. What's the last? Great thing that they have seen. I don't know if you've had time to see many movies lately. But what is last? I saw dragged the cost across concrete. Yeah. The Unidad topic of conversation our office lately. Oh, it has. Yeah. What do you think it was very long and slow, but I really liked it. And it was so brutal. I haven't tendency of showing lotta really horrible thing. Like, I'll show her like, hey, check this out in like is from a horror movie I've seen. She's like why show him that for this one? I was like, hey, remember Jennifer carpenter from like, Dexter. You have to check out her part in this movie. I showed her that in the is just so depressing. Brutal. But yeah, no. I like that move.

#17 Come Back To Us, Mindy

"Yeah. Hi, this is Julie behind comments. Lot of things get into today. Have our new section, which is okay. Yeah. I don't mind. Yeah. We're a little relationship. Heavy actually, there's a lot of relationship type news. So let's just get into it. First things. First housing G eazy reportedly split again in the lease shocking. News ever. I don't know the last time they seem like they were like happy until the very. Yeah. It seemed like it. I mean, a lot of Instagram things it seems like it constantly, and then it just ends back together. I think they will too. That's why I'm not so shocked by this news. I just felt like we had to say you'd be shook a few did it. They were gonna get back together. Even if they get here fucking balling because of Jesus at halls together, and I will say though, her in that green Offit for Halloween show today. She live real, no, I'm really like I'm a big fan of hers. I just I think she stunning I think her body's assignment how town she. It's the person in all those things like genuinely from just from a fiscal perspective is really attractive. Okay. Moving on to Jenin. John official allegedly officially filed from divorce from Channing, and he is supposedly linked to Jessie j yeah, he's apparently like to she tore does Jessie j go on tours when whenever that her shows like she shows. Of what? I think something about this. Really honorable the fact that they were so they kind of handled it, so well, they always remain respect for each other as parents and all those things I still don't I don't know. I always loved them together. I'm still upset about that one. Yeah. That was a heart. But whatever's best for them third story, Amy Schumer is pregnant this one is a big deal. I didn't see that coming. I don't know. Why I knew she was married. I didn't know she wanted kids. I don't I don't widening coming either. I just I never pictured her like as a mom. I don't know why. Yeah. I'm thrilled for him. So happy the way she announced. It was really funny. She did it kind of like a spoof on Meghan Markle. No. That's how she knows to that was like one of the ways that she did after. But the way she originally announced it was she put up a list of candidates that she was endorsing in the election. And then the last thing on the less was like AB Schumer dash pregnant, and then she put up a picture of her like making. Yeah. News broke was seriously. I didn't see the first one. Yeah, I'm happy for, you know, I don't really know much about her relationship. I've that's one talk about like celebrity sex as I'd like to see like I'm fascinated dynamic. Definitely because it happened so fast. Remember when the wedding happened. And we I remember somebody was like Texan may was like Amy Schumer is getting married this weekend. But it's a secret don't tell anybody, and I was like one whom I gonna tell to everyone. Well, we didn't have this at the time. Who's just me alone? And I texted you at the very Voest. I think I probably did. And then she married that we can in like a secret surprise ceremony. I'll never forget that. I probably will forget what day doesn't that? That. Agreed. Didn't me moving onto number four Pete and Arianna update. Just because I feel like from now on it's going to to everybody's gonna need enough date. So he reportedly is changes number and it's continuing just himself from her. What do we think about it? Like he's like he's got a critical. I get it. I understand you want to be able to get through it. If they're still talking. Do you think she even wants to be so talking? I don't also every single thing we're saying here is completely allegedly. Like, we were making everything I mean, not making it up. Just our opinions on it are I don't know. Like, this is what it was reported on. So I'm just going to give my opinions on that. But who knows if he really did change number? I don't think it's the farthest thing though. No, I don't I think people are always changing them or a lot. Also at the very least probably million people touching me like what's going on. And. He's like didn't wanna deal. That's changes number. Yeah. No, totally. She seems I'm gonna change my number soon. I think too many too many people have. I'm sure. I continue to be confused by her Instagram presents, but supportive. He. No, he joked about eating a roommate. Yeah. That was funny and jot apoptosis up that he did with him. He was like looking for a roommate. Do you think though that he remember there was that report that he moved out of the apartment that she moved up that she mood. I don't know. I mean that made me things that maybe not. But it could have just been him joking. And he's still there and still see her like Instagram storing department. I'm not sure I don't know. She said last night. Well, not last night. It was the. It's aired last night the wizard of Oz thing. So number five. Demi Levato is mom came out saying that she is ninety days sober, which is amazing. So we're happy for you, dummy dummy thinking about you, and congratulations this amazing. I was really happy. Also that her mom came out about it. Like, I just felt like we haven't heard it was been radio. Silence on that end. Yeah. I in the very beginning. I think her mom said something in the not for a while. But. Okay. Number six, which just thinks that's the most recent happened. But it's probably the biggest this whole Cardi B. Nikki Menashe thing. I love a let's get into it guys. Okay. So for those of you who don't really understand it because it is it's hard to understand the whole thing basically dates back to the the mega and the fight between icky and Cardi were Cardi threw her shoe at Nikki. And and there was that whole thing. And it was kinda laid like it's been pretty stagnant. Since then I would say it hasn't really been too much. But yesterday on Nikki's radio show. She basically said that her that Nikki's fron raw was the one that was that one that gave Cardi the bump butter had. But we all previously thought that it was Nikki security team. And she was like Nikki was like. Yeah. It was rod who did that. But we let it people think it was security for legal reasons. So nothing would happen and Cardi came out and was like that's such bullshit. You can see every single videos your security coming out me. It's not your random friend that, you know, hit me like this is so dumb, whatever. So they were going. Back and forth about this. It's like a while. Nikki was tweet and Cardi was doing Instagram videos. They're saying a bunch of other show. Nikki basically was like saying that Cardi had never written her own rap in her life Cardi was saying that she got that. Oh, a Nikki was also saying that she got offered fashioned Nova. I it was like a bunch of different things. But hardy comes back at her Cording video saying she got the diesel ad. I, you know, she got offer to be on a track for they're going back and forth. I will say regardless of who side you're on. I love the Cardi's medium like the fact that she does it via video. I so prefer over tweet. Yeah. Because I didn't have to read anything. They couldn't keep up with so team Cardi just for the simple fact that I could keep up with choose is so much more fun watching her talk about it. Yeah. I'm sorry. That does not have like when you're that big of a mega celebrity that doesn't have. And could you imagine shut though? How awesome is that? It does. Yeah. Does that? We've never seen that in recent years because she doesn't give shit like she like she always says she was like you guys made me famous. I didn't wanna be famous. So I'm not like. Conforming to your typical ways that like people like publicists coming out with a statement. She's like getting on our Instagram and recording these one minute videos, you remember before insert like everything imagine if you wanted to deny something I always thinking about this like there was no, oh, I know how this came up, and I'll tell you 'cause you're gonna laugh there was no easy way to deny a rumor like your had a release a statement to attaboy. Now, you just tweet it, and it's done, and the reason that I was thinking about this the other day is because we were talking about when Tony Parker cheated on evil Goria with his teammates way, try to trash and municipal. We're talking about this that the wife had to the wife of the player that Tony Parker was to affair with head to put something on her website to deny the allegations. Oh, that's crazy. That's crazy. That's like it's so easy. Like somebody says, which by the way, going into the Justin Bieber thing why I was confused was we'll get into this. Why didn't just just tweet? That's not me eating of Reto. Yeah. Let's get into that in thirty seconds wrap up the Cardi Nikki conversation 'cause I'd say a couple more things. I totally agree with you though. Nikki, you know, at the end, Nikki says like she wants to put it all behind her and Cardi says kind of they're in good places, and they wanna stay positive it just doesn't work like that though. You can't like come out swinging and have all those things and then just go away. Now, I want them to take a lot of protests. Now, all these things happen, which by the way, as I said, so many times just like how porn has an ex social media sodas the Maury show when Nikki to the Laurie off. He was like why pay for it when you can do for free on the Maury show. That would be that would be insane. But I'm just saying so smart on their part. Yeah. Nobile always love pointing out intelligence social media marketing by different brands, or it's the it's the best thing right now. That's what I mean. Not even just for our from our perspective, which is like what every article raker. Anyway, let's move onto the Instagram section, and we can start xactly what you lose talking about. This burrito thing. I'm sure you guys have heard about it. It's been everywhere. Let's just laid out. We have shot at it. So basically this pictures suggesting Bieber or who we thought was just eating Brita from the middle, which as we know not the correct way to eat Abruzzo. And everybody's like what the fuck so either rundown as a whole story on how he's never really food correctly and pulls up all these pictures from this literally everyone was talking about this. It was like it was. Like, it was the biggest thing. I don't know who freaking out about it. We did a post about I don't know why just went viral anyway two days ago or yesterday. Yes. Theory guys from Instagram. I mean from YouTube come out with the video that the entire thing was a prank dress up one of their friends who looks like just be had him sit on the bench for this exactly photo opportunity to looks exactly. Like hit an ANC everyone. My thing is where was dressed in an office. Tell you why just in just tweet and be like, by the way. I mean, maybe just a really good sport. Or you just like fucked eat of eat don't read just looked at. I eat the Reto like that. It's so weird. There's three things number one. He was in on the prank with the YouTube guys, which I don't think he's our series, by the way our theories number two. He was just like straight up to stone forgot that he did it which is the case. But it's a funny thing to think about or number three he's just genuinely to famous it doesn't give this rumor about him is the biggest we're of two thousand eighteen and like fuck it say give where just like. The rumors that have surfaced about Justin beaver like eating a burrito. Wrong is pretty much the least of his worries. He's like, oh, please. They're not saying back with Selena, right? Yeah. I'll I'll take a Rio all day. He's like, I'll never eat food. Right again. This is how I if this is the news, it's free. You're gonna start seeing just we were like biting ice cream cones from the bottom just to like just to avoid any sort of thing about cheating on Haley like any negativity. That is so funny that having that power to control the news cycle that much. Yes celebrity. No, I I mean, it's crazy. So what do people say to us that we awaken control the news cycle in like? Being a so noxious today. You know what I'm saying? I'm not saying we say that. But people say that tells you something it gets whatever. But imagine being the celebrity and actually having that power. No. I know that's crazy. Okay. In other Instagram news. So fifty cent Giral in one of the oldest feuds in the entertainment industry history. Fifty out on its grammar Twitter. And I just love what you make statements like that like the oldest feud and entertainment history. Like, I feel like there's like Mozart and somebody's ROY go the fuck that shit. I was at the symphony in fourteen thirty votes aren't alive. I'm not even gonna give number because I have no idea like look it up because that's the Mozart in Bhakkar like what the fuck. I said one second of all I always use super qualifiers. I'm such a one time she called me on it. I know you really do it far more than I told you that he told me that I do. Oh, you know, Mozart died in the seventeen hundreds what I think it was earlier. I thought Columbus like Columbus was rolling into America like playing Mozart like when they scored. That was a great Hanshin. Oh, clear show yet. Got think gotta keep the ship afloat. Because let me out. I don't know. It's perfect. Thank god. You don't. Okay. So fifty cent comes out. He's so mother fucking petty. And I love it. He buys two hundred front row tickets citadels concert solely. So that it would be completely. Honestly, what was the whole front row? And he was like he only did on groupon. Drop like three or five grand, which Tim is nothing early pocket change. Also, by the way, like congrats fifty cent on going on groupon. For the first time it had to been there's no way. He's I'm sure it was something really. You me that tweet. I think that was like listen I liked. I really understand why he got. Yes. Oh, petty because it's so true, so petty. I want to do something like that. So case if he posts about it and fifty cent, snoop Dogg in the sense that they post so much those guys if you look they have over ten thousand twenty thousand posts, they pose a lot anyway, snoop commented on the picture and was like stop it. And he responded like, okay, new bombshell, which that show lasted in the maybe a minute side. Just tried to keep. Like, what is to duplicate of all also just let him who likes new care that much? John rule that you need to like protect him like just let him like he's not hurting him. He says. I said it's the best thing that ever happened to drool career because everybody's talking about it. Those tickets probably wouldn't have sold out anyway, TV money. Yeah. He's really doing favorite sink. You fifty. Liberals manager like rights fifty like a lower. Okay. Also, this is news. We just wanna talk about it Nick Jonas as you saw because we posted it commented on preowned goes picture making a burning up reference to the readdress. I love that was all of our seventh grade selves. We're just freaking out. And they join us followed us, oh Jonas followed us, which I always want to jinx because he could follow it anytime like many county, which as as we started with the fosters Mindy. We are praying for you. We were changed for not annoying anymore. We're not posting the way we were. Do anything just come back to us minutes back? Give us one more chance.

You like our good side us or capable of those of you who listen last week with the fosters when we said the reference to the me when you go into a supermarket looking like shit, and you want to be able to tell them. I don't really look like that. We think about that with Mindy all the time. We'll posting it will be like this one. I know. But she's got to see it. She think she sees. Yeah. I guess we should just doesn't wanna follow which I totally respect. Maybe she doesn't know that we cared about the follow. Right. Maybe we should we honestly should do something though, we should send her something. Or it's not even that. I care if I wanted all, of course, I hate the reason she unveiled that wasn't Representative us. I know we're being we don't even it has to be Julie, I think so too. Maybe maybe she didn't like us. Maybe I just don't anything. She knew us. Well enough to draw that conclusion as you could really hurt by this. Like, I come back. We're titling this episode come comeback Mindy. Come back to us. Calm of Indy. I love when we already have the title before we have to leave. I know what's great telecom with any other options. I won't unless something else unless another comes over talking. Fuck I'll have to not be funny. So that we have to keep it. A side effect for that one. There. Sound effect? Funny, one that I can't think of this moment. Okay. When you think of I'll let you know, truly Harry narrow way. What's going on narrator? There was no sound effect. Julie's hair. Louise, what happened she got out this, and it's coned? It's. It's she's a straight up upside park home over I said, we'd be ready to leave in five minutes. And she looks for jobless. Okay. I'll be ready. Brush my teeth. And that was it is that hundred for you. I'm just saying that this is how I that was actually a big stuff so far situations or yeah. Yeah. I think it makes us who wears jeans to attend podcast with no guest. I've been in these exact joggers for three days. All right three days. I know things if we had a celebrity or something, obviously, we'd be put together to the nines. But we're not why would like to the sevens. I want to go to the phone lines will. Yeah. Because you don't get the makeup done. But let's just personal preference. Okay. Moving on. Now. What are we talking about a little tangent? Is there anything else in the Instagram early wanted us? No, I guess not. Okay. Ladies and gentlemen, let's transition to our award ceremony where we will crown the funniest comment and the best clapback of the week. Let's do it. Let's do it. So I we're gonna name you our two nominations for funniest I also think there should be a way where maybe we could nominated ahead of time via stories, and we could see who voted. Oh. And then just read instead of doing Estrade. No, no, we should talk about both. But I would love to get the more involved. Let us know what you think about that. If you'd like to vote on the funniest come of the week. Yeah. I feel you don't amongst us as much about the podcast anymore in the beginning. That so many opinions makes me so sad. You think they don't I don't know? Maybe we're just getting too good at it. We got a lot of inboxes about saying about the foster sisters. Yeah. People like them they were. So I mean, they were the best. Okay. So two options funniest number one Halsey captioned the picture of herself, thirty degrees Fahrenheit and John Mayer Commons. That's to seventy six point four three Kelvin's for you, thermal nuts. I don't know. Why thermal not just got me? I mean, it's the most John comment out. Right. It's the most John Kamen ever to look it up. Get the exact number. I wouldn't even be surprised if he just like knew that. Off the top of the head like he was able to convert celsius to Kelvin. And he's like what you can't what the fuck sa- Kelvin zero Kelvin as the coldest thing. Something can be right. I remember that. I think let me tell you how much money paid for my physics. I've no idea about this. I don't is that physics or like anything inside that science, right? Yeah. I think zero like I don't think we've ever achieved zero coven. Second funny is common. So Ryan Reynolds who has been incredibly active recently. And we appreciate your dedication post. A picture of him showing that he spent his birthday voting and Papa troll comments voting his possum capital W, and he response at patrol get outta my head patrol and take your damn theme song with you. I know that seems it's catchy shit. What's not love about Ryan and trouble, interacting, Instagram? Nothing music. Just him being a dad and it's the best fucking hot, dad. You know, how I feel? I know I'm really high up there for me in terms of hot dad's or just in general, even if he wasn't a dad, but the dad thing, obviously, the dad thing elevates it to the next level. When I think about John stay most of the sun don't talk about it. I can't and he loves him so much that video of him on Kelly and Ryan crying. He's like literally he's on Killian Ryan he's being interviewed like talking about like how a door is. And and John civil starts crying. And she's like not like tearing like walling. And she. What? And he was like, oh, it's just I just realized the longest I've ever been away from him. Do we? I got to be honest with you have an orgasm. She's like the fuck. Yeah. God damn it. No, I know sexy. So's XY all these Hollywood dads is one way to make guy so much more active advocate and be good to that kid. I think John's wins just because I've never seen the patrol themes. God. It's catchy if wrong. And no, I mean, I think you would still choose John. But who would you choose? I think to go with Ryan I disagree. No. It's not that. We can go with right on this one. I trust you. I'll play for you later. Okay. Congratulations. Ryan Reynolds, you are the recipient of this week's funnies comment and the hot data word. I'm not avoid of the year. We can you can win it every week. Yes. Now moved to best clapback. So there were two options. The first was something about Sarah Hyland is that people love coming at her for her looks meeting her wheat saying that she's too thin which regardless of her wheat. I've said this million times it bothers me to the degree when anybody feels on social media or in realized that they can have any opinions to what a woman should weigh. It bothers me so much especially considering the fact that she's been so vocal and open with her health struggles. So really pissing me off anyways, someone comments she's in a bathing suit. Someone comes may catch a lot of shit for this. But Sarah Hyland, you've a large fan base filled with fans who care for your wellbeing, and those who are quote yes-men, and we'll say whatever to make you happy me. I'm the type of who's really concerned you'll really unhealthy being that's gonna can't be safe. Now, go on and Lynch me for expressing myself, which then wells Adams replies. No, you you're a fan who's a juice bag. And then he's built you. You're wrong their island, which we didn't see until after we posted it that's happened. But fuck that guy like, I guess you're pressing up you're coming from a good place who the fuck are you to say anything about her weight? Just just don't just have your internal concerns wells. He really loves her house comes wells defend Sarah, so hard every time. And I know people may think that it's too much or anything personally. I would like if my if I was being attacked like that in my man. Yeah. That he come on my guy. Yeah. Yeah. It's great. The other one in them on outs it so Martha Stewart's I'm gonna com she posted a picture of her writing by school and someone commented sorry, but you're too old to safely set an example admit it make it easier for the rest of us to give up thinking, we can do we can do it all and she response of the papers. I feel sorry. If you think I'm too old to bicycle keep an excellent shape doing many outdoor and indoor exercises and activties. Yes, you do Martha to also this person forget that she was in prison like there is not a lot to do in president of sides workout again shape. She's not about to lose to lose the hard work. She put it in prison. You kidding? The funniest thing about this comet was that. They were they were saying if she's doing a disservice the older generation by showing them like as if as an eighty year old is going to look at Martha's. She can do it. Fuck it. The four Wheeler. Like, you know, what I mean they acted like she was instilling. Everyone's grandma is just like running out of this oscilloscope. And they're like fuck it. I saw Martha Washington. Martha stewart. Is this riding bikes I'm gonna fucking do a triathlon. It's like grandma. I actually like choosing citing right in nursing. With nurses can control. This is funny. We think it has to be there's no way it's not there's no way it's not just in a nursing home EC Martha Stewart called she's like I work at this nursing facility. And actually a lot of problems duty or Graham, just the surely the other day, she. PSA utter Instagram story like we couldn't find Shirley on this today. We we heard soul cycle. She was like, we're like, what are you doing here? She was like Martha did. Like every class in American. I was filled with the elderly. Oh my God. This has to be skit it has to be based on that one Instagram post. That is so funny. Well, also response to that like. I could just imagine her reading that and being enraged. He's like what the fuck. Oh my gosh. They wanna keep me in the kitchen. Yeah. They can't do that. It's like fuck it Martha's and go into the nursing homes yourself and recruiting people. Yeah. Oh, john. You'll you're in good shape. Eighty six. Come with me, take you on a ride. Staffing that she's coming into radically the problem. Meanwhile, she comes to she sick on their side folk you they make a dodgeball league. Fuck. That is hilarious. Yeah. We're funny shit. I hope that that happens somewhere my obvious winters, Martha Stewart wwl's, but Martha okay now, we're going to transition to our Kardashian recap the party up soda where we talk about all things sheets, if you have no interest feel free to just along those of you who are interested. Stay tuned. We'll talk with the episodes of there was a baby shower for Chloe. And it's so crazy watching that go down when in this timeframe, they don't know about the scandal yet. So you know, she's up to be our which was so stunning. Like, I know everything that Christian Jenner does is beautiful, but this was incredibly beautiful especial shot out to my good friend do ice and Jeff Letham. Thank you so much. Excellent job you too. And you know, when you see tryst in there, and she's still in love with him. And she's even saying to someone thinks you're saying Melita like, yeah, he so good. How can you be mad at him? He's just so good. It's you're thinking oh shit. You don't know. Don't you get so frustrated when you're watching them, and it's like, especially with khloe this season. It's like you're just watching her and you wanna shake like the old khloe and be like is going to happen. I know there's no back to the future. I wanna go back in time and just tell her and be like, it's like when people are listening to the box, and they know piece of trivia that we miss and they wanted to I told you that they that's what I'm saying. What feeling like it goes? That's how I feel watching the credentials piece. I want to literally take khloe and be like, listen, get your shit together. You gotta have a plan. You got be up to decide what you wanna do. Because in three months. This is going to happen showers gorgeous, another storyline was Kylie was really insecure about her post baby weight. She looked literally amazing and insane. But I can understand, you know, your body goes through changes, and it was really nice like the rest of them are kind of consoling saying, we get it. We noticed like it's to us. We look at them and their bodies our dreams. But I think that every woman has their own insecurities. So. Also, Kim went to the March. Yes. And she's you know, instilling this whole the whole importance of gun safety with north and that whole thing, and it is nice to see her get involved. Put it at that. I don't. Yeah. I don't know. It's very Connie's there. And then you have him now in the current late, which is he's supporting the Republican agenda, which is obvious. Also, it's very confusing with Connie because there's also a this woman in Chicago who's running for mayor of Chicago that chance the rapper had endorsed. And she's a black woman in Chicago. And she was in debt from running for mayor. She didn't have the money in Konya voter check for seventy three thousand dollars. So it's like he's very all over the place. Well, I think that his biggest thing he would he would never say that he was aligned with the party like he would never say, I'm Republican. But apparently that he was he's making apparel encouraging black people to leave the Democratic Party, which makes sense from them to go and endorse a democrat every single time. I watched that DC rally and Martin Luther King's granddaughter great-granddaughter span her. Yeah, I cry even I was I'm like, why am I crying during the crashing? It was so emotional to me. I don't know. You know, it's like here her grandfather fought all these years ago now here she is. Yes that God tense totally. So that happened and then other major things in the episode on seven kids Connie wanting seven kids, right? Let me tell you something him. No, don't do it. Don't you agree? I mean, listen, she's not birthing any of them. I just don't think it's logical for five more kids or four more kids a lot of kids. It's just I mean, like I'm not surprised that he wants that many. I think people forget that aspect of him, which is really important is being a father. You don't see it that much because when we see people saying what we do. And we're like the biggest culprits of this is that we base, you know, celebrity parents and how good they are based on their social media. And how often they, you know, show their kids and show themselves with their kids. And that's like, which makes sense. It's our only like insight to the way, they interact with their kids. But kinda do that a lot like we see him with the kids. We see everybody else that the kids, but we don't see Connie really all the time taking care of the kids. So when we do see it. It's like you see that you know, he is a really good father. And he he does care about the kids. But I think that people don't know that side of him that. Well, right. It's not like he's DJ cowed. And it's totally unfair to judge someone based on. No, totally. I'm just saying it's our. Insight onto about DJ Calot. I still think he's the best in the world. No. You said that he was a better dad, then I forgot who celebrity and I was like, wow, hold on. I wanna remember. Who was it? You said this person was Dave Brennan Tournus. Yeah. Okay. Brennan Tartus is Paul. Navy who is now trying to sit Instagram she's an Instagram influence or block, or whatever she you should check her out because she's awesome. And also. She has the cutest kids that have ever existed just like hands down ruby is really we've really gone to know, her personality Instagram, and she is the best person out become part of brand. And she is adorable and not only horrible the way she looked. She is really mazing personality. You can just tell the school's going to be star. They have another kid who also is just so cute, but she's younger so Brandon there are husband and their dad he posts about the kids all the time. It's just he's also just he so amazing and so loving and like. We shouldn't be comparing to dad'll. That's could both be amazing. These this is we talk about where like if I were in a newborn the way back. We had our head shots taken yesterday in and around the way back from Staten Island, and a DJ Hallett Instagram's video of Assad and Julie's like he is just I think he's hands down the best ad defense in my defensive saying like, let's think about DJ Cowden. He's obsessed with him a set. All I said to you was that he I'm sure he's a great dad. I just don't think that it's fair to judge how good of data is based on how apparently obsessed. He is case and point your k-, your point was that you thought Brandon was a better dad because of the way we see him on social media, but not because of the way that he posts about being obsessed. I'm saying I'm saying like, even when REO posts about them. She's always says best husband best, dad. You can see. I'm just saying they're both amazing. But I don't think that it's fair to judge it based on DJ literally being with the sun. You know, what are we going to agree to disagree? We think are both incredible. And. Credible dad's a lot? We don't have to choose. I'm just saying that DJ how it is the king of the dads. It's like a thing. Right. Like, I would love for brand to get a little more publicity for being an amazing, dad. Okay. So this is dedicated to getting branded Tournus more publicity for being the excellent father that he is an amazing father. Okay. Okay. Done done. And for those who are who. They are just check out our aerials Instagram, and I promise you, you will fall in love with this little girl, and you'll probably level Brandon also family department and the whole nine, but that's very low carpeting, okay, we have. So let's talk about other real life. Crashing things not upset related Kylie and Travis by a forty million dollar house together. Apparently, it's so first of all we did see it. We didn't see updated. But we saw you didn't see it. No wonder we see it. Have we see it? Not on on TV Musso. I didn't I actually did an open the link for some reason it which is. So unlike me because it's okay. So their bedroom is twenty six hundred square feet, which is just to put it in perspective, my studio apartment in the city is like eight hundred that's just there. I know. I'm just taking it all in like that is insane. And it was so beautiful. I'm sure knowing Kylie she's going to redo the whole thing. It's it's not. I love highly house. Now, though, I've I've really that the the when you walk in in the way, and it's like the lucite and are on the side. I just love that. I love all of their houses. I love their taste corners backyard is potentially the arguably the best you know, what I'll tell you. What's the best is chloe's guesthouse Dhamar any fucking went in on that my God minded at all of those. It's so funny when we go to LA like when we see a real celebrity, it'll be cool. If we see Martin Villar doting, Joe, Julie will lose it and message Donald she's going to jump out of the carpet when it's beyond saying. Running down. Her Dale a Marin is my he's my ultimate he's a designer to the stars. He's on the credentials. If you guys are interior where he was also on million dollar decorator, which was a show that was on Bravo while ago Isabel is going to kill me for talking about this. Yeah, he was on a million dollar decorator. It was ham, and there was a whole cast, and I've gotten really attached them because it was all like, you know, people know that there are a lot of interior design shows, but most of them are just like interior design for normal people. This was like interior design to the stars like the richest of the rich, they build the most gorgeous houses and the show isn't on anymore. And it's the biggest shame Andy if you're listening. I know you've popped in once in a while Darren onto that Andy listen, and I could please bring back. Listen, though, it was because he was on a flight and he had time to kill. And he was like, yeah, listen. Yeah. We have to make sure we scheduled Darren for a time when and he's also going to be on a flight. Let's talk to her doctor. Like, we fucking love you. And we would y you hear Eddie single time. You want to pitch million dollar decorators return, obviously. Okay. Also, so yes, okay. Chaps about is insane house, which I can't wait to see what she does that. She keeps her current house that they move into what's Jordan going to do whereas living. I need to know what I was thinking about today what 'cause we were old house that would be nice. But that's what I was thinking about. I was thinking about because we were talking about the weekend asking bell to move in with him. And I was like allegedly moving whatever. But I was thinking about that was like like Bella and g g apartment together. I mean, I haven't seen it the inside of it and how it's decorated, but obviously fucking gorgeous. I'm sure, but I was thinking about I was like, you know, what's cool by being celebrities, like if your boyfriend Ashi to move in you don't have to give up your apartment like you. Can you're rich you can just keep paying rent on your apartment and move in with him. He's happy. And then when it inevitably or doesn't maybe doesn't for them. But it went in and we go south you just move back into your own apartment. So nice. Even on the upside of the production's Kim is buying an apartment in kind of like in the city, and she's going to have it as her office one of our offices to that people. Don't have to be in her house, and she's gonna Calabasas or in the city. I think in Los Angeles, but not new not New York, you're sorry in Los Angeles. So when you say the city, I'm sorry, I meant in the city of Angeles. And she's has she having a bedroom and that she can shoot Dettori being like individualism as far as and she took Larson manage toward she's had to. So it was like, yeah. And you know, what I'm just going to keep it. Hopefully, one of my kids will wanna live here. One day. Chili's just easy, so easy it listen money lubricates life. My aunt always said that it's so true having money. It's a vehicle to it's not like a a maker break sorta thing for all the just it makes. That's all does. Normal people when they move into their it's such a big decision because it's like well fuck I've to share because I'm about to give up my apartment. They don't have to. That is really good point. Is there anything else in crashing world that you want to add just though we're really up in the air with khloe interest in our currently? No, I just I'm praying for an ex up. So they actually talk about it. I just I think that it's really interesting because I think they must not know. And I think khloe trying to say to us just be patient because we're trying to figure it out. And I don't think she's trying to leave us out of the loop. There was also, you know, Tristan center balloons when she got back home from Bali. We talk about a little bit. Because tripled amazing. We don't know much. But when they got back from Bali Tristan had welcome home balloons at the house for her. But she also when Chris was on Ellen. Alan Astor, if close planning on moving back to Cleveland, and she wouldn't say or she didn't know. I mean, I think I think they're as as confused as we are. But I think they're probably totally. Yeah. Okay. So we'll see on that. And we'll say more of the house. I think that that's all we major news that we had shocked much. Yeah. Something that I decided that I wanna do which tell you this until right now. Is is that I think would be really nice last episode with the fosters that we're going to end the celebrity episodes by asking them to kind of nominate someone to come on. I think with us something that we could do aside from the fact that we now this up so clearly we've dedicated to getting middling back and people to check arial charges. I think we should give the followers of follow suggestion of like we've spoken about this before you actually didn't just bring this on me, although Emma does that. Sometimes I go look at an Email, and it's like, oh, by the way, like. This weeding. And I'm like, how would I like like, obviously, check my Email. But like we like the thing is it doesn't sound as weird because normal people communicate over Email, and it's like, oh their business partner would just we're texting ninety nine percent of the day. So it's like when we're in the middle of a conversation. I get an Email, and it's like a plan that I had no idea that's already been in place. I'm like, we're already talking just we're already thinking. No, she so right. I can't say anything. But anyway, my suggestion which I know for a fact you're gonna agree with and be so excited that I'm saying this is the prema- Donald on Instagram are I m a he is on all so happy. So this guy runs. Bravo. Social media. He is the most. Personally. I find to be the most entertaining follow on Instagram for stories. Yeah. He is so clever. So fun, so hip and exciting and funny and just lively, and he makes my day, and I could not speak more highly this guy, we bonded just because over social media. We've now become kind of friendly with him. Hopefully, we're gonna have him on the podcast, and he's such a nice guy and just follow him because he's so much fucking fun. Yeah. He's just a good time. There's nothing like your. There's nothing like informative that you're gonna take away your like specific to like, he's just a good follow and fun guy. Just like soberi. And I also think it's always fun. When you find out the behind the scene like I'm sure a lot of you follow. Bravo, TV social media accounts. So now to find out the guy behind the scenes that is school thing. Oh my God. I can't. Oh my God. I can't so the prima donnas. Excellent. Just. He's gonna be. Insane. Okay. That's offered today. Let us know if there's anything else you want us to discuss GM us. Ashley, that's it. Okay. Have you guys?

Dont Buy The Hype of Camp!

The GM Shuffle

34:19 min | 1 year ago

Dont Buy The Hype of Camp!

"All right. Lots of NFL talk here. The GM shuffling concerns about Todd Gurley. Also Roger Goodell saying four preseason games on necessary and don't buy the hype of camp. But more importantly, there's a time Mr. Lombardi walked down the streets, and say, who's the heavyweight champ of the world, and everybody would know well, now it's different era in boxing and being host of their coverage into Zona Saturday night. I was able to say the unified heavyweight champion. The world is a guy named Anthony Joshua good-looking guy body. Beautiful. Articulate funny, charming talking Thursday. Talk to fight. Oh my God. And he's facing aviary we's is giving a hope to chubby guys everywhere. Mike in his always, he said, I'm a chubby guy who doesn't look the part, he goes out and shocks the world. He knocks down this guy Joshua four times. He's unified heavyweight champ of the world. How incredible was that? It was unbelievable. I watched it like five times. I mean it was unbelievable. First of all, he's got flubber around. I mean that's like me. When I go. To the beach. It was so great. And then like it looks like the trunks, like they had a special order those trunks, there's no way they come in the standard size. Right. So that was great. And he'd beat the crap out of the. I mean it was unbelievable. You know. And every time I watch a fight scene. It's always, you know, Parcells loves fighters, right? Parcells would talk about fighters constantly and there's always a moment. It hit me when I watched the end of this fight, and I wonder what you thought on this so Parcells talks about how there's two fighters veto, Anna Fermo and another guy, I think it was hurricane somebody, he were, they were fighting and it kinda got into the seventy eight round and all of a sudden cyclone heart. It was cyclone heart veto, Anna Fermo and cyclone heart just in the eighth round. Just couldn't go anymore. Right. And he just quit that was it? So when they go back to the dressing room they're sitting there and there's just a sheep between the two of them, right? And veto Anna firm telling his trainer like I didn't think I could go another minute. I didn't think I could go another minute. And I thought for sure, I was going to die. I just. Thank god. He quit before I quit me while cyclone heart. Here's that. And he realizes the margin between what's great. And what's not is so small. And I thought when I saw Johnson standing on the ropes he just didn't really wanna go another mile with this guy. Yeah. The symptoms after Mike the five gone longer, because you hear the phrase keep going, he says. Yeah, but your point, his byline, which is he's leaning on the ropes. He does not stepping forward saying. Yeah I'm good. I'm good. He's been knocked four times out the rapid smart to stop the fight there, because he didn't have it. Whatever excuse, you wanna have listen. You do the autopsy now it was over confident was he cocky, come over from UK's is time zone difference, screw them all up. There's eight thousand fans Mike in that arena, imitates, Madison Square Garden, a fight there, you could say what you want to boxing. But unite both though this, if you go to Madison Square Garden, do you go to any of shriek or New York City on a one core. Guys in baseball, one corner guy, sort of football, low car guys shouldn't a one or two guys are beat the crap out of generosity. That's still the appeal a boxing and that feeling to fighters. I gonna ring. It's electrical and most heavyweight fighters. Always have restaurants. I can't wait for Ruiz's restaurant. Can you imagine how good that's going to be all? You can eat buffet seriously. We were looking at the fattest guys ever like two ton. Tony glencoe butterbean was four twenty six foreign when he came back, you'll recall was bigger and he kinda right Forman yell and all the rest of it. He was huge at that time found believable that was so good. I loved it. It was awesome death integrates back on course. They'll be a rematch if Joshua anti-jewish coming up on zone. Now, shift over to football concerns around Todd Gurley here, Mike. This is a guy who we know can be prolific easy key running back, but how consider you, but this help tickly his knee while. So look when you go back to Todd Gurley came out of Georgia. Right. Everybody was concerned of the Bella check, and I go down to Georgia to workout, see if he's going to work out doesn't stiffs us on the workout. We work out David Andrews, which was great. Anyway. But the concern was his knee. We thought maybe he could eventually slip because people were medically concerned about the knee and it wasn't that he people were concerned about. He was not going to be able to play. They were concerned about long jetty, same concern people had about, Malcolm Mitchell. We'd kind of ignored it and said, okay, we'll take Malcolm Mitchell. No big deal. But that ended up being the doctors were right on that one. And this one, I think the doctors are right. So, and then he gets this contract extension, this huge deal with all this guaranteed money at everybody in the league is not saying, oh my God. He doesn't deserve talent wise. They're all saying he doesn't deserve it because of durability moving forward. And, you know, when Jay Glazer report something, he's getting it directly from somebody who's talking to it. And so this is a problem. I think this is going to continue to be a problem as it goes on, because what many people don't understand about eleven personnel won back one tight end in the game, which the Rams run a lot of it's the back that makes the offense it's not the receivers p. People confuse it the back makes it biggest thing you've taught me about football, just in the short to me down the shadows, as you said, when evaluating running backs blocking the first thing because if you can't block why on earth are gonna use this. You can't pass protect as you said, Tom, basic. I don't trust this guy every came out here if you're the Rams, what do you do? Do you make a move in terms of depth de away to see a play at out if you're Sean McVay? Well, I think because they've got Brown there. They drafted Henderson. They've got guys I think they like, but I think would would girly gives them is gives them that multi-dimensional player when he's in the game as it runner pass remember early adverse over ten yards to catch one year. I mean his impact in the passing game made that eleven personnel go because not only have to stack the box you've got to play the runs. You've got also handle ski alert screen draw member on the sidelines. That great classic seem where loose Aden's on the oh shit. Just watch the scream. Watts drawl just remember everything. Well, when you have a back like that you gotta watch out for everything. I mean that really is what has to happen. And I. Losing if girly misses some time and I think the Rams would be smart to save girl. I always felt like running backs and I know this is hard and football but for me if I was if a coach, I would save the back for November, December, I would save him as the closer. I would have a closer back, you know, somebody who can close the fourth quarter somebody can close it out. Like when the raiders signed marshawn Lynch, I thought he would be the perfect closer. He's the Mariana river. Nobody wants to tackle is big fat ass. Come down the field in the fourth quarter. Right. Nobody wants a piece of right who wants to tackle him. And so they don't wanna tackle them. And in November December when people stop practicing. Right. It's all mostly teams go through a lot of walk, throughs. There's no contact practice. Do you wanna tackle a big two hundred and seventy pound two hundred sixty pound man coming at, you know, chance and you wanna talk him in the fourth quarter. No chance. But I don't I would see to me if I were building a team again, I would the one of the running back side would call would be closer back. Back that can close out the game, not necessarily running the ball, but catching it, and being a force, and you see fresh legs, how critical is late night football game default. He warned down there gas when you look at time and possessions to telling stat go, my God. They've had the ball for forty minutes. The defense can't hold up anymore. That's what people miss the boat so much as people say, you got to play better defense. I gotta play less defense and the only way you play less defense's by having a control the offense when the eagles were really good two years ago, they play twenty six minutes of defense when they gotta play thirty two minutes. They're very good. And how do you do that? You got to get off the field. I think this, I think running backs it's a position that that people tend to wanna they wanna to look at it early when, when I was at GM. I thought if we draft the running back, I want him to hold out like I'll encourage him to hold out miss camp. I don't care don't come in. You can't get hurt. Right. Right. Like sunny, Michelle, what he got hurt this year for the patriots eras all the other guy got her who was fresh at the end of the year. But Sony, Michelle ready to go. So new Michelle ready to go. He was at his peak performance when they needed a most. I think that's what they have to do with Gurley. I think they're going to have to look. It's a little bit like girly is no different than Joe and beat when you got him you love. Right. But you're not gonna have them all the time. So like for me, if I were drafting for the seventy Sixers, and trust me, I've been working on it. I preparing I've been working on this. I've got my that call of necessary. I'm ready. If Brett Brown calls, I'm ready to come in and offer opinion, the nets most important position on the seventy Sixers the backup center, but you watch Toronto and you watch Golden State, the Sixers could have competed with any of it. They would have just had a back. If two things happen. And these are big Fs if Embiid was in shape. And if they had a backup center, right? And that's the problem depth is so critical. And that's a problem for Phillies. Just didn't have that depth. Rappers go one through ten the warriors. Hey causes comes back different team different heap. I'm gonna write a column for the Aflac and it's going to be called if so, like most of the time GM's are sitting around their office right now saying they should be playing the if game if we lose this player. What do we look like if we lose that player? What is it look like if this player comes through, what is it looked like you know you gotta play that game if Nick foles and I'm happy that his wife's okay if he gets hurt who's playing quarterback for us. No. But we're doomed where foreign twelve team right? If you're, if you're David call while sitting down there and you're playing the game which you should be doing now, instead of playing golf in the afternoon, you say shit, we'd better find a backup quarterback, but it's hilarious. 'cause like what you're describing is executive therapist. Dr mouth would say that we shouldn't leave your life. You should live your life that everything's going to be positive things will work out and you're going the other way you're going neurotic. And just like if this is what we gotta this eight different digitally plans. That's the life of a front office executive. No doubt. And that's why the bell checks name is doom parcels that name do you know why because he's doom and gloom all the time. But Bill would walk around and all shit. We can't do this. We can't do that. It's that negative energy that he transposes and it's like, you know, and Charlie Munger really kinda star. This, the great berkshire-hathaway president who I've read a lot about, and he talks about how he spends most of his days, trying to disprove, a series, he comes up with eerie, and then he wants to try to disprove it, and I think that's what you have to do. If you I know that's a tormented way to live your life. You still like tormented art like your whole you create this invention. Why this event sucks? Here's what's going to work. Here's my problem, you know, and you sit there and you wonder why you can't get you know but that's what you have to do. What if I play the game? Everything's fine. Assume it's all go to plan like Austin powers or you know in Batman, they're just gonna jokers going to kill him. And then we'll come back like gonna work. Well, let's play the game with the topic which has been percolating for few years now. And that is the whole issue preseason games. Now you can tell me as an executive, a guy who knows that the value of it. I can tell you the fan. I mean there's nothing worse. I I'll watch the third preseason game because that's where most regular start the first one, I never watched and the fourth when you could pay me up to watch the fourth preseason team. Because there. Only gonna series. Sometimes we, we should just I mean first of all, we should just call the fourth preseason games. We should you know, the fourth preseason games should be played at, like Lee. Highs, you know, they should be played like on that. And the player should take yellow school buses to the game. I mean it should be like an event seriously like order. Exactly. We should turn it into an event like this is going to be an event like instead of being in front of nobody shows up Labor Day weekend in New York City. Everybody's either at the Hamptons, the jersey shore. Nobody's watching the who wants to watch two teams that the giants and the patriots play with players. They don't even know about preseason thing I think it has to get worked out. I think there has to be a sense of that. You've gotta find a way to have developmental practices developmental games. And you gotta and you've gotta have eighteen regular season games to preseason. But you almost have to have to where, I think, and this is where we're going like Detroit's going to practice against the. The patriots right? Like, let people come watch that for free letter have an inter squad scrimmage with that on the field somewhere in central Michigan. Let's say, but basically be all players. You're just trying to develop you gotta have developmental days and here's the players union saying this because Roger Goodell said the preseason games are necessary. The players going to say, oh, yeah. This is a really smart way. You're sneaking in two more games on us. There's more chance of concussion career-threatening injuries, etc. No sixteen game season. If you wanna cut the preseason fide which you can't just squeeze into games. Awesome. Hey, look, just hopper replace eighteen regular season games all of a sudden now that happened and somebody, I don't know how much money we're talking about. Because ultimately, when you boil this all down at all comes down to money, right? I mean who's replacing the money that you have to have, like who's replacing this money that we've lost if we give up two games? Like, I think the raiders to be honest with the raiders are going to talk about playing a game in Winnipeg or somewhere. That's trillion. That's brilliant. I mean, I think you should I think that I think the fr frankly, I think the raiders, which would be more Br. If the raiders were like the Harlem Globetrotters and played their entire schedule in different cities, like they played the road games at west town. Already right. Okay. The raiders we're gonna we're gonna play in Salt Lake City this week. It'll be a home game for us. You know, like that would be brilliant. Like you know why play on that third infield seriously? Like why play on that third infield? And I think it's great for the raiders. I think it's a brilliant move by them to go play a Winnipeg, even if they make fifty thousand dollars, if they break even it's still a great move for them to get away from all that crap. They love the blue bombers up there. The fell Winnipeg as far as the patriots are concerned, rob gronkowski. We talked with this previously, Mike. And I do think rocket come back and say, yeah, I think there's a chance I think he's going to miss football. I think potentially could happen excetera rocks in the Kumba. He's put the comeback talked to rest. How would you buying? When guys say, well, I'm done. I'm done. I'm done because we've seen enough, especially boxing guy says he says he's done. It comes back in. Yeah, I don't know. I mean, why if gronk is done wise? He going to be twelve so much to work out. Why is he in Miami working out like if he's done like it isn't like he's losing weight? And he's gotten all thin. And he's, you know he's not. Replacing the way Johnson on Milwaukee. I mean he's not doing that right good. Rather way. I've watched that movie seventeen thousand when you have a grandson, I've watched that movie seventeen thousand song, I said to boys rolled up, God's great. That's how you. A lot of I'm into this, I'm into this. I'm the mwana into a Paul patrol and I'm into the Hoosier. Fair pop show. Rubble is the who's who I wanna know who's financing these dogs like these stocks, have they got their own private air force. They got. I mean it's amazing. They're going to garrison a women could take the other day. They went to Hawaii to get sand. I'm like holy shit. These guys are well-financed. We're going to talk to get to the sponsor of the pocket. How great would it be if you get divorced? Character on Papa troll like some anger the nemesis comes in Lombardy plays plays the villain. Oh, it would be so cool to do that would be. I mean it's amazing graphics that they have. I mean it's fascinating. It's unbelievable and the look. But anyway, I've been into that. I, I don't know why gronk keep saying no, he looks too young. I mean, and I think coming back, I think he could have two or three years, where he could play in utilized at the right right level. Make the point though for those you're listening. First time it was a great point. Mates be lasting. You can't just show up for the last eight games. The year writers that's deployed. That's place. Explain them wants to trading deadline comes than gronk loses all his rights. He has to go through the waiver wire before he can become on the active roster so that becomes problematic for him. And I think to me, I think he you know, if he says this in the middle of September, I believe it his him saying June before he gets his rings on Thursday. I'm not I'm not buying it yet. And I don't think drew rose, I betcha drew Rosenhaus courage them. Hey, come back come back, come back. And I'm sure they would take them back, especially just skipped training. Kip skip the stuff. Nobody wants to do just show up. We we're gonna go. And, you know, people realize crocs, not by dog Bella, Bella hates the heat, right? She's can't Belic walk five miles, when it's cool cat walked two miles when it's hot that's wrong. Gronk as the heat hates the heat. And, and you mentioned the schedule pats that came in Miami wanna skip that he'll know he'll want nothing to do with that. I mean he just he sweats. Some people just aren't built for that heat. That's why I think my Hammy is going to be an interesting play. They open ball. More. They got New England. They're not gonna be in to to start the season. I promise you that. Yeah. All right. That's true. When it comes to, to grant, but in terms of camping, generally, no, he's stories this guy literally good at camp. This all Jay's missing a lot of time at camp like how falls the patriots program, though. I mean, have you ever seen anything like this guy in your life? Is there ever a better? Con man seriously. I mean, the two best conned guys are in this thing. Right. I would put Odal Beckham right next to those two guys. Unbelievable names. You, you have to remember. I know it's Redford Paul Newman. I can't remember the names off head. What you're right orbit for best picture. It's amazing. I mean just so good at the con, but like this whole thing that he does. You know, I it's like he, he lures people even Freddie kitchens, like where is, the dude, like, really where are you, if Freddie kitchens, saying public to me, listen, if you're the guy, I mean deal that, but, why are you publicly unless that is your point trying to send a message across K? We. Communicate them. He alway- can communicate as publicly. I'm sure he's probably returning. Yeah, I don't know. He's probably got eighty six phones. I don't know which ones, you know, he by a phone for blonde hair, women. He probably has a phone for dark hair, women. You know. Okay. That's my care phone. I got that one. I mean, you know, who knows. I mean I literally have been in an interview I literally have been interview with the player and he brought in three phones and literally he went through what each phone was four and I don't wanna get into the graphic nature of what they were for. Sure. But it was like, okay, I can't even imagine this, like, oh, then we're not drafting you we're go-. I love the candid with you. Because what you asked me the right answers like this phone is for this. Okay. Fine. You can go keep going. Do not Pasco do not collect two hundred dollars. I want to hear the story off their weight other stories, discuss Gerald McCoy. How much more does he have left the take this tax who was fearsome about five years ago with the bucks? This is the greatest. This is what happens when you have an agent that kind of Khun, create its. Own star. Right. So you're sitting back. We know the patriots said. No, we know the ravens have said, no, even though it's coming out that McCoy's no longer consider that. He was going to give it the weekend to make decisions. He's got very few options. I would say it's probably down to one team. I would say it's probably down to just either the Browns. Now, they say the ravens, I'm not sure that it'll be the ravens, but it could be I don't think as much gas left. I think whoever signs us, guys going to for tackle remember, he could be a progress stopper. Because if he hasn't been a camp with people understand, if you're not in camp, your legs, have no juice, like our man, the boxer the other day when he lost his legs, he couldn't really function, right? Anthony Joshua look show. Once you lose your legs, you can't get it back at his age. I think it's a non story. I think people see the name and they don't realize it play. Hey, when Bruce Arians says he doesn't fit what does that tell you like like seriously? Like how does he not fit? Right. All good defensive players can fit somewhere right like a run stuff for guys just a big. Load like just just just, just rush the passer, right? Just take two offense of linemen and do what you gotta do fit. It doesn't fit. That's, that's the that's one of the great lies of all time. Speaking of not fitting, how about coaches, get hurt the flirt, tearing achilles for the green hash not the only one though AD. Here's the thing that I've heard is they have this night basketball game, right there, Green Bay. They have an indoor basketball court, and all the coaches are going in there. My is Mike because this is like these classic jocks still wanna do stuff. They did ten years ago what he knew and take it easy. You know, it's funny, I read the article you gave me the right Thompson book. I've read them the one column on trying to find the fiftieth fighter on Ali, all of all these opponents amazed was an amazing column, of course, everything. The guy writes is amazing, but would Jordan when Jordan went really worked out hard, and then the next day had to take like seven Advil to get going. Right. That was reminiscent of this Packer situation where the Packers all these coaches plying had like multiple coaches have torn calf. They've. Got quad muscles like they're literally in the training room like they have no chance. They're beat up the whole coaching staff from just playing in a mural basketball. So when the floor like tour is achilles. Like he's not the only injury like they literally have an injury list of all, and I guess they're up there and they, you know, they're all in there, and they're trying to hang out, and it's probably good for him. It's gonna be fascinating to see this one got to say I know it's good bonding. I get team building. But if you're running the ship, would you guys knock it off? Let's, let's shoot simple. Okay. Find some L. Let's understand how old we are. I mean like literally when I when the when the grandsons around here, I'm on an eight Advil day. I mean, let's face it. I'm eight Advil play like bocce with them like you going hard. I don't know. But I mean the other day, I looked at my I looked at my Fitbit, and I had, like twenty six thousand steps, I'm like, I don't know where I'm going. Moss, but making good time I love it. One more before we get to over under for the NFC west, and this is the jets your favorite team deep in search for GM last time. We talked about was Douglas with Philly. What are you here now in terms of their Magister, I'm here, and it's all about Christopher Johnson? Definitely wants the right partnership. But I think it'll it could be Douglas. It could be somebody else, but he wants a partnership. And I think what led him down the boat down the wrong why he made the change. Was he felt like the partnership was never gonna work between MCI gin and gays. And I think that's what he really visualizes the partnership. And I think the other issue is is that he really liked Todd Bowles? He really liked. He did not wanna fire Todd Bowles. Christopher johnson. And I think that McAfee again, wanted to fire him because he thought it would get him more time. And once he realized that whoever brought in not. So I think this is going to be a partnership. I think what were the two Douglas, whether it's Terry know whether it's somebody out of left field. I don't know that for sure. I do think it's still Douglas Douglas is going to take the job and gays has no problem turning over the fifty three to somebody gases and power hungry. So I think it'll be Douglas Douglas doesn't really at the end of the day. I don't think he wants to stay in Philadelphia. I really don't. Yeah. You painted a picture very vividly for him. This guy who's built up a lot who's been released smart player personnel. But nowhere else to go and be getting pushed a little bit and other squeeze out a little bit. Get out before they get rid of you, right? Yeah. I mean or if you don't really feel comfortable there. Why work? They're like, go somewhere where you feel most comfortable and get out, look. Everybody says, well, wait, there will be another one coming down. They've never people, never waited like you gotta have to. It's a hard thing to do to wait. I think it's probably more difficult than people think. All right. Let's take a second Mike to talk about.

We traveled to the NFC west first off the Rams. Eight one. You discussed the fact of girlies out how problem that could be. And I know you're not as infatuated Jared Goff, some other people so eight to one right now to win the division I have too much competition to win the division. But how do you see the Rams? I liked him to win the division. But here's the question. Can they get to eleven wins? Can they get there? I, I, I mean, that's the hard one for me. I'm not sold that they can get their you know, they opened up in Carolina, which, you know, I think, and then they got the warlords at home, they go to Cleveland and they have Tampa. So they for the first month of the season. They're pretty good. Then they got Seattle, San Francisco Atlanta Cincinnati. I think there's there could be eleven wins in there. Because look they're gonna play the AFC north. Right. They're playing the AFC north. So that's Baltimore which by week twelve of the season, that's Christmas. I don't know about that got Cincinnati's not a great team. Plus, they got the AFC south. That's a hard one. I think I think it's the right number ten and I, I would stay away to me. I'm a stay away from the Rams. I think they can get to eleven though Seahawks. Overall team in some ways, in transition, clearly, you know, recognize anybody from the defense if you're looking from the Super Bowl champions, but Russell Wilson gets his massive contract today. The second best team in the division. I do. I think they are. I really think they are. And I think again, they're playing the AFC south and the NFC south. I think that they're, you know, I think they got a chance to really add something's their number is at eight. Right. Isn't that where they are at twenty five to one odds overall eight and a half? So the perfect Vegas knows how to screw without half-point, but I do think I do think they get to nine I think they get to nine wins. I think there are nine win team. I think they're better Russell Wilson if you're paying your the highest paid quarterback in the NFL, you'd better win nine games, don't you agree? Yeah. I would agree the Russell Wilson because to me, my go nine wins. You go K. That's peripheral playoffs ten wins. You should make the plants to me, if you said right now Salma supplies at say they're going to be close. I don't feel supremely confident they're gonna be closer. That's why you're right. Eight nap and I, I would go over I would take the night now. San Francisco eight wins. That's a hard one. I'm thinking there, under there. I don't see I think of San Francisco finished seven and nine. I think they have a pretty good season. I, I mean, they're going to have to take a they have to prove to me. On defense that they can stop somebody, and I know they got Bosa who by the way his hurt. So they're concerned about him already. I mean I don't know about that one. I don't have enough confidence that the forty Niners or an eight win a five hundred team. I guess the thought just because listen they got their quarterback back there healthy again, but did your point fifty percent of the game you'll even sure but they're deep it's who's playmakers into be worse that identity on defense oriented defense who stands out to really isn't anybody players and I'm not in love with defensive coordinator. I don't think they make great adjustments during the game. I think they struggle I think, you know, they have all their secondary is really to me suspect. I'm not buying them as a football team. I did last year. I love Garoppolo and I hope he wins ten games but I don't see it on paper and last of the cardinals five win team over or under for them. I'm going under. I mean first of all, you got a rookie quarterback in spread formation the balls in his hands all the time. How do you think this is gonna work out? Seriously? How's it going to work out but to say look at any rookie quarterback? It's exceptionally can come in and have. Immediate success? It's a clear under for me. I'm if they go over, I think Kuenssberg Mike coach of the year. If you if it's a five and eleven div kings, coach. I don't see how they've improved themselves. I mean, they're, they're their offense of lines still is where it needs to be. They've added some receivers. But I mean first of all, he's gonna find out he's going to have to make judgments to what he does. And he's not gonna be able to do it in the preseason 'cause nobody's going to show them what they're gonna do. But once that regular season starts, once he faces those defenses where he's got to, you know, he's gotta sit there like he opens up with the Troy that he's got Baltimore. He faces Don Martindale defense in Baltimore, he's going to see things. He's never seen before. And how does he adjust to it then Carolina's going to do? I think the first month of the season for the cardinals critical they play Detroit Baltimore Carolina and Seattle for defensive coaches that will probably challenge cliff pretty much knew. Ac- what he does because then he's got to make an adjustment. He doesn't have the off season to do it. That's what things get dicey before we get to hard knocks. You've been talking fantasy looked at different offensive positions. This time we're going to focus on defense. Who are some defense? If you're out of your fancy football, Mike, you think these teams are going to be. Starched defensively. I love Denver's defense. I think Chow back. They gave Chris Harris big extension. I think Vic Fangio gazillion identity on defense. I think they'll be good defense to share. I really do. I think Denver is going to be a problem that can cover, and I would job and von Miller with a lot to prove. And I think the like the coach I think Denver is going to be a tough defense. I think Philly's going to be a really tough defense too. I think Philly's got improve their defensive line. I think they can get after it key there, the deathly defensive line. Right. They can rotate so many guys with Chris long. Now, God I felt they've embedded onto now look everybody knows Chicago is going to be good on defense. It's going to be interesting to see the difference between how it works out between Chuck Pagano, taking over for Vic Fangio, so that's going to be. I like the chargers to I think the chargers have improved offensively, I think the chargers can still cause again I think the way to play great defensive play less defense. And so look at the offense to like New England. I think New England will be pretty good on defense. We know checks coach defense. I think they'll run the football. I think England up playing less. Less defense than they did last year. I think the key to be a great defense to play twenty seven minutes that should be the goal that should be the goal. We're going to play twenty-seven you play twenty seven minutes. Defense night. You'll be pretty good. Yeah. You ask especially big three hundred pound man. Just give me your bass, and I'll make sure you get your rest those chip Kelly. Right. It was like, man. The team is gas because his office is trying to go. So quick deep. It's they give us a break. Man. Let's go. Exactly, exactly. And I think if you pace the game, the right way you help your defense. And I think that's where I wrote the column about Baltimore. I didn't think they were get over, and people sort of lecture about Baltimore. And what they won because of the way they Baltimore defense was good. But it didn't become great until they played less defense because Baltimore's offense was carrying the time possession. That's critical that's critical. How you carry the time possession doesn't necessarily mean run the ball. But I think that's critical. All right. Last, here's a clothes shop in the shuffle is always subscribed right review of the podcast, all your friends. Hard knocks. It's must see TV Mike when you watch on HBO. I mean, we can discuss his men or ways. But what do you think hard knocks way? You feed your team. They're gonna microscope like that. I think you have to be really careful if you let hard knocks in your building, because if hard knocks comes in, you can get your ass fire. I mean harm Edwards. Got fired her members got fired because of he led hard knocks in his building. He you know, they watched him and pondering. Are they gotta be careful? The word is. It's Detroit, right? And I think that's going to be a fascinating to watch. First of all, I think, you know, we should today we should go buy stock, and number two pencils. Because if it's the Troy and, and we got my man, Matt with his number two, pencil behind zero even though he's carrying a relented sheet around that he can't use the pencil for, for sure. She loves the pencils. I love it loves the pencil by pencil stock. I think that will be fascinating to see how this all goes, there's a lot. Like I think the tropes going to be an interesting team because there's not necessarily this fan. Fanfare with them and how much they all bought in the Matthew Stafford situation, we've talked about this is going to be fascinating. I think and I think that's why the drama in that they wanna see how Matthew Stafford's wife Stu, and how that all plays in again. The seventy Sixers most important position backup center. I think Detroit, the most important position backup quarterback. I think if I were Bob Quinn, and I'm playing that if game if we have to get Matthew Stafford the month off of an his wife is not well, and she he can't really focus which and understanding that, that could clearly be the case. And we play Arizona, we play the chargers we play Philly and we play canned city. We play three really hard games. I better have a really good quarterback. And then they got the by I mean, those four games if they are one and three at the break and come back and play Monday night against Green Bay in Green Bay. And they end up one in four to start the season. Yeah. And as you told to put up for listening. Call though was player friendly guys like Patricia came in there too. It's different. Feeling right now. I would be curious to see how much hard knocks gets that intensity. And whether or not the players are buying or rubbing people the wrong way. Yeah. Look, I mean he can beat the chargers. I don't think so. Can you beat Philly? No. Can it be can't sitting? Can he be Green Bay in Green Bay? No. Could he beat Minnesota? I don't think so he has the giants that he's got Oakland Chicago by the by the middle of November. He might have two wins if he only has two wins in November. They're gonna fire his ass. Not. He's not exactly. One. A lot of favor over there. No matter how many, you know, sometimes he goes, and does these things outside that makes them look like. But in terms of the core people, I'm not sure they buy the authentic. If you're rank the wrong people, he ruffle feathers in trouble. What's against subscribe review, your prediction, NBA finals, raptors warriors, who wins by the time we talk next we'll champion. I think it's the warriors. When I think the words made, I think we get too caught up in watching these games and not allowing for the adjustments. I thought Milwaukee did a horrendous job adjusting to what Toronto, Ditto I think honest really got caught. I think that the Kurd did a good job of Justin Durant. If he comes back, I was impressed with boogie cousins. I mean my Lord, you know he's out of shape but he was fighting through it. I was I think Golden State wins and I really do. I don't they need to rent right before he kinda after the first gaming minister and coming back nee can go came four is loose game three. You're okay. Get it back for four. There's a heart of a champion man. And, and they have this heart just you can't put them away. I thought last night was going to be the hardest game of the season for the raptors. And it was yeah, exactly they had a glimmer their labor McMahon that third quarter was overwhelming. All right. Safe travels friend. We'll talk soon. Dr.

MLB World Series, Blake's 50, Embiid on Wax and More

"And now Jalen and Jacoby on ESPN. Yup. Steeper. He's still rose. What up down. Geico. Sooner stage on voter, like putting it on wax. Jalen and Jacoby. What do we do. What they. Big World Series game one win for my Red Sox. Big overtime, win for your pistons. Yup, much to discuss today on the program. The undefeated pelicans off to a hot start. Yup. And someone sued Taylor swift because they feel like they legally have a right to know we'll be discussing all that more, but it's women crush Wednesday today. And we're taking female voicemails. This alleged time crush. Will you stop saying that every time I said, I'm gonna stop saying it just because you say that every time or no? No. You said it backwards. You're gonna keep saying it because I said every time. Versus where we celebrate kinder. More responsible, more intelligent gender of our species. The ladies by taking off Email voicemails, like this one. They give the people what the what this is try calling from Wilmington, Delaware, Delaware. I set out to reg for pants on here. Invention out to my dad for making those best MAC and cheese ever. I got two questions for you. Question boss move or soft move. My dad's makes me watch the Celtics game all the time. I don't like to Celtics my my sister and my dad and my brother. Like I think they'll go good with the podfather. Second question is if you were still a kid, what would you be for Halloween? I heard your petting LT shirts. You can't forget about the kids, you know, fried out, great call. I'm I said, it's here great call. That is my favorite call. Literally of all your should like their car. Well, somebody fracture my shelter may show some tears. I say, media people covering that story like, oh, was the crying? Have you ever gotten hit by somebody? Three hundred pounds run this fast as they can and the players in over until you're down with the ball that kinda hurts. So moving boss, move making your kid, watch the Celtics, Celtic loss move. Here's why, because even though they're watching the Celtics, more importantly, they're still watching basketball with their parent with their parent. And so even if she doesn't grow up to love the Celtics, she was still be a fan of sport and she would still like Jacoby find a way to pick her own team if she's die, easy like you. I wish my kids would love sports me. They have no interest at all. What so ever my son is way wants to see the truck commercials. That's all he cares about the truck commercial. All he cares about also if you were still a child, what would you dress up as Holloway, if. I was a child. My mom go to for a long time. It was like a whole bowl. What's. What? What is a Hobo go get like a branch or stick of some really long and then put like the Indiana, van dano, whatever. On the end, you stuff stuffing their put stuff in there. That was my goal to as a Hobo. Yeah, see, here's the people problems. My wife is the best mom in world and she is making Quincy a custom costume, not just buying something store. She's making Quincy. The q train wants to be the q train. So she got a box. She painted it. It really looks like a subway car really, really does. However, here's the problem. You sound like he got some parents got some money. Here's a. You need a Halloween costume that you can move in. You know what I mean? You need someone that you're comfortable go point and he's got this big box around him all day. How you gonna put the by the ball chain. Exactly. So I told her we need a backup cost them to master something from when he decides he doesn't wanna wear a carbo box. Any more. But if I was dressing up these days. That's a tough one. I would probably be. That that I'm stumped. I'm going Papa troll. I'm released. You don't know you're missing out just checking up patrol. Yeah, I'm starting at your bay. They got new ones, Everest tracker. Donald Trump mask. What sports Jalen get sports. The sports. Female voicemails only to listen to another voicemail. Cockbain shut out to Reggie. This is Christina from Kalamazoo. Michigan is a boss, move our soft move. My husband watches every pistons and lions game, and he's from Detroit, even if they're losing, he'll still watch the game to the very end. And for the whole day, he gets mad at me and the whole family is a boss, move ourselves. A couple of things shelter, Kalamazoo. We appreciate you calling in on a Wednesday where we on a women on this program and as an avid pistons and lions fan. I have to admit, I do the exact same thing boss move. Here's why. Here's what's there. Nothing to do. I got a mental, I gotta show you the difference. Tina's dad is a difference. There are some people that when they have different issues in their loss, they just bleed into other parts. So if you have a bad day at the office, sometimes you take it home and vice versa. Sure. And by no means, should this be malicious or mean-spirited with sound like the sounds like to me for level of disappointment and disdain, and and the classic case of leaving a sour taste in your mouth? That's what happens when you root for a team. That's only one one playoff game in sixty years. You don't think you'll be upset ever. You can't take it back. Christina. Christina didn't isn't the one that you know that through the interceptions that's mass Stafford. I think that that call was the dad telling her to call knowing that you were going to say it was a boss move. That is a sophomore. I'm on your tricks. Christina's dad. I'm on your tricks. Soft move. Boss move for by Christina for calling in the program to Tina shrink Bill. Washroom washroom to call in anytime they want. Tracking the domestic dust bunny you find them hiding under wardrobes next to LA Saux don't move to sudden, although scurry off what's utterly fascinating about the dust bunny is that although they're not actually sent creatures when they have Kyko not only saves people money, but also has a ninety, seven percents customer satisfaction rating. It's obvious to them. You should switch because yes, switching to gyco is a no brainer. Oh, no, it's the dust bunnies only natural predator on the lung dust on his run along. Troy. In Blake Griffin reminded everybody that he is still played Griffin on this basket, won the game with the and one down by two in overtime. Blake Griffin had how many points Jalen rose fifty. How many points Jalen rose fifty. Fifty points a career-high. Blake Griffin. He has scored twenty six thirty three and fifty and the pistons way for it or on teff e kid is this just a blip is this and they will remember when the piss feed him, they started hot and now they're in the in the Eastern Conference now or is this for real? No. This is for real really used to converse. Let me tell you a couple of reasons why a healthy Reggie Jackson played a fishing show. Fifty percent from the flown. Ishmael has been terrific as the substitute giving a change of pace finishing at the hoop setting up the offense. Andre Drummond will continue to be the anchor among the league leaders in rebounds. He will get his office together. He's actually. Shooting three point shots. Well, let's get back to Blake Griff. Let's get back to play fifty points. So here's what happens. You get drafted by the clippers you plan big market and you live up to the hype. You twenty ten and five. You're spectacular. You have mercurial dunks over people, your must see TV, but then the clippers don't meet expectations and now look at their roster. None of the people from lob city threes con, John John lossing. God and another guy to score thirty in yesterday's game JJ ready as well. So they revamped everything they were trying to do and Blake dealt with some injuries. And so now you get him to the east with his size. He could play a powerful he could play the center doesn't matter who guard them defensively. As you saw yesterday, it could be Joel be. It could be a powerful they were playing without Ben Simmons, but it's terrific home win at his best. When Blake Griffin is playing his best. He's a versatile Swiss knife of a basketball player. He can pass. He could shoot, you see him hit the threes yesterday, like when he is playing at his best, his unstoppable. However, let's be honest. We haven't really seen it for a couple of years. There's been injuries. Memory has beaten up on the assistant trainer like we haven't seen it, but when he does put it together, he looked so good. Like we forgot. I'm not gonna live, I forgot watching him play. He's really graceful and compact like he's not too tall. He's not too bulky. He can dribble really good. He could pass. Nice. We know about his hops. He can make the fifteen footer, but now he's edited three point shot. Do you know who's leading the NBA three point percentage Laker? Absolutely eleven for eighteen so for him to add that to his game, not only clearly what he'd be an all star in the east. But he and Andre Drummond, I'm going to be a dynamic interior duo to be reckon with. He said, if I got mine the pistons, I tried to keep them out of the playoffs by predictions. But in the play, I just don't see the Hornets beating them. Remember last year you had to eat a lot cinnamon. You remember that because they missed the playoffs on that. That is why that is what I don't think the pistons are going to miss the playoffs. Again, I, I really think they ought to run that back. No, I told you there in playing really well, and you mentioned Andre, Drummond, and I want to show you a play from last night's game that may be curious like just absolutely furious. Watch this. You've seen it by now little up fake from 'em bead and then in elbow to the head from Drummond, I guess. Yes, watch this flopportunity. He just takes all vantage of the flopportunity here. That is a floppy poppy move right there. And then he argues with the official to get them ejected and actually get some jetted this infuriated me first of all, he completely fabricated the whole tire incident. I don't think Drummond even intentionally tried to hit him in the face any way, shape or form. He barely made contact with them beat, and then it'd be falls over not only that he falls over and then campaigns to the official to kick him out of the game. And the official complies these two gentlemen have a history. I don't know if you realize this year ago today they were just going back and forth about when they see each other. What's going to take place on the floor because it's competitive banner, banter. I love that about Joel Embiid. He did the exact same thing will Hassan Whiteside. So let's pill back the onion a little bit when he says, somebody can't guard him in be. That's a fact. Yeah, people can't guard. He's six, eleven. He has long arm three. You shoot the three. He has a nice handle can turn. All those skills, his all those skills. Why is he doing this? Floppy poppy thing? Why is he doing this? Why it's not about the flop. Yes, it is. It's about the risk falling forward. See the league has done a terrific job and you're going to see this happen. You're going to see Andre Drummond technical foul, two thousand dollars be rescinded. You're gonna see, Joel Embiid flying, find four floppy. I like that that's going to happen. I like the and you probably will see Andre Drummond also tweeting about will see that I guarantee. And so again, Joel Embiid isn't lying when he says, people can't guard him. Now he's a terrific player. The problem is that isn't the best matchup always for Andre. Drummond is just because of their skill sets are different. Now, Andre Drummond goes out of the game. However, Joel Embiid had a hard time garden, Blake Griffin did and play Griffith scored on them on a post a couple of times. And he also gave him that dribble handoff fake action. To go down Elena, ash, get to three point play to win the game. Yup, right on Amir Johnson. Well, after the game, we'll never believe this Joel Embiid had something to say as he always does. Let's let's all. Just trying to win the game that you see on the second one. Time to see that in me and actually my face. You know, like I said. Like a lot of things own a lot of real estate in his head. That's nice. It's cute little thing to say, but he said he touched my face. He didn't hit you. He didn't. He didn't extend his arm on just it makes if you look at the replay, you could see that he hit me. No, he didn't join you flop what you just gave a distinction is hitting someone's face versus touch touching. Exactly, yes. You got touched so touched. So when you're at the recipient, he clearly knows it wasn't hard or flagrant, but he would just trying to get to call and get drummed out of the game. If you notice the reaction was get him outta here immediately for him. It was a smart play. I know he has a flagrant. We got tangled up earlier in the game. I got called for a foul when Andre Drummond, flopped. So now it's a little payback while he has a flagrant, which got him out of the game. Do you think he has real estate and under Germans head? I think so. I think a little bit a little bit last year I go bought a record and the stats. The. Six, three and one against a piston this year, the prisoner one enough. That's really what we're going to just I both of these guys going to put up big numbers course. Andre Drummond is going to be among the league leaders in multiple categories. Joel, Embiid is going to be all NBA and in NBA possibly MVP conversation not only are the pistons undefeated in the Western Conference. The pelicans are. The pelicans off to a hot start last night against the clippers. Anthony Davis had thirty four points and thirteen rebounds five blocks. You said, this will be Anthony Davis. Last year in pelicans uniform. Does this hot start? Could a good season from this team. Keep Anthony Davis there. I hope so. I've been a person like so many that I'm not mad at players joining up to play with multiple all-stars. It just kind of tips the scale when a seventy three win teams adds an MVP like Kevin Durant that that's what the scale. So I always made sure on this program, I gave props to Damara derozen Lillard, Anthony Davis, all-star level players that re-signed with the team that drafted him Devon Booker. Even with Phoenix. I appreciate that homegrown because I know great players don't wanna play for multiple teams. The bronze, as is an outlier with that being said, he. May want to be out and I am on the record of saying s such that'll mean on movable. He's still got two more years left on his deal. If Jimmy Butler ain't got moved yet. I'll definitely not moving Anthony Davis unless I ultimately have to or just a deal that I can't turn down because guess what's going to happen this year was that he can win MVP. You Davis is going to be the MVP Dave MVP he stays healthy. He's going to be them. He went and I think that's fair. And so yet. But here's the thing you're saying. So you're saying you're saying number one to win the MVP number two. They're going to trade the MVP at the end of the season. Second town I wouldn't. You said it was gonna happen right here in this room? I did. I if I was them, I would not do it. I said, if I say after this year, Anthony Davis is going to find a way to maneuver himself to play with LeBron James in Los Angeles. I think if he has an MVP season and the pelicans make the playoffs, there's no way he gets reader. Here's what I want to see happen. Another all star level player is already on the team because I love drew holiday ITO Moore's planned. Terrific. Miratec has gotten off to a great star shelter. Julius Randle who's doing well shout to Alvin gentry. He's been a part of some of the best offenses as an assistant and or a head coach in the game. He said he wouldn't treat anything beyond. I don't believe that I want to see somebody in the twenty nineteen class go join him. Not necessarily. He have to leave what two years left on his deal. It's time for news. The matters. You tell us what fan. I know who she is. I like a couple of records. You name it toast of song. I can't either not off top. I know who she is. She's attractive young lady. There's a fan of hers, gentleman by the name Greer who's a paralegal, and he's a big fan of Taylor swift. He wrote for love song. He is now suing Taylor swift because he says he has a legal right to be knowledged by Taylor swift because tell us with has acknowledged other fans, and therefore set a precedent that this is this is what she does. So if someone chose her love appreciates her gives her gift and she knowledge is other people how she not acknowledging Mr. green and he has now taken her to court in real life. There's a court case against Taylor swift because he wrote her a love song. She did not acknowledge it. We got to put this lick Rick on a soundboard. So now each a slice of pizza. Thank you. This is the judge would say, no. Say when Greg into the courtroom, sit down each slice of pizza and because I wish he could go in front of Mathis or Judy. Okay, because those judges let this guy have it. There's a book that I brought breeze through a really long time ago said you breathe through, didn't read it, but now going to go back and read it, it's called frivolous lawsuits. Oh, it has so many different things that people try to others for like you were doing fifty five down the street, and I turn my head and all of a sudden I'm wearing a neck brace because I had to turn and watch you drive like like stains it don't even make sense this, here's the thing that bothers me is this dude is a paralegal like come on. He's not just like some crazy fan will. He is a crazy fan of just happened to be paralegal, I guess. So you under as underestimating what he does for a living based on his behavior. Mr. Greer sit down. On each your size of pizza. She almost got dead. I hate owing people money when somebody money's just like a black cloud that just falls me around.

One in Boston was the railing. There was absolutely thrilling. Jalen rose is going to get up to get his bat because we're talking about baseball Kershaw and sale. What was supposed to be pitching duo that was going to be dominant was not both. Teams got at the starting pitchers early and Warto Nunez in the seventh inning had a home run right there to break it open to put the Red Sox up by four Jalen rose. I know it's early in the season. I'm going to the media thing. I'm gonna overreact is tonight's game to a must win for the dodgers. Absolutely not coming back to win what four out of five against this Red Sox team. If they go down to, it's just not happening. They have quality pitch and have. Terrific. Hidden rape, balanced managers, doing a terrific job, shuffling it works out. It looks Dave Robertson Ajayi off day off balance. So I agree that tonight has to be a must win for us. Court looks really good today for putting Nunez in a pinch hit. It looks really good when it works out. It must feel really see. That was a very important decision for the Red Sox. They're putting news in getting that home run and breaking the game open, but a more important play happened earlier, your guy, Mr. bets. What's his first. He stole this base. We'll take a hit and run was on that stolen base. You know what that means. Jalen rose. What does that mean? Free tacos. A Mexican November first between two and six PM you can go into a Taco Bell and get a free taco courtesy of Mr. bed sauce. A Mexican Natan very important question for you. Mr. rose, hard or soft SoKo op prefer soft because I have a nears but really hard takes the best. I like to mix it up. Wells makes it up c. p. three and Rondo here we are three four days separated from the incident, and it's still in the headlines the latest is what resign Rondo had to say about Chris Paul in the fallout from their incident. Let's see what Mr. Rhonda had to say. He said, quote, everyone wants to believe, Chris, Paul's good guy. They don't know. He's a horrible teammate. They don't know how he treats people look at what he did last year when he was in LA trying to get to the clippers locker room. They don't want to believe he's capable of taunting and igniting an incident. John Rondo not a big Chris, Paul fan. Is there some truth in what return Rondo says about there may be, but I'm not going there and allowing him to change the narrative. Let's keep it on the fight. Keep it to what happened. Let's understand that these two gentlemen do have a history. They both aggressive. They're both feisty in both fight for every inch of the floor. They're both point guard that will fight the other team center. I like what they bring to the table. However, what happened if resign Rondo spit in his face is dead wrong. We're still saying if I'm just saying we're supposed to sipping on now I wanna hear I I saw the footage and I've worn a mouthpiece a lot and I've gotten to altercations verbally, and that in theory has never happened when I was talking to somebody didn't even when it had come out of my mouth that way. But at the same time again, I wanna keep it towards the incident. What he did was dead wrong, Brandon Ingram said, and like I. I said on this show, they got off easy on no suspensions. They've really threw a punch Aspinall. Somebody got three games. They really did brand ego, ran from half court, threw a haymaker Rondo still saying he didn't spit on Chris Paul, and you're even saying, if he spent on Chris Paul, you saw the footage. He's Chris. I don't know why this is still the question. Why is this the question? Well, it other have being questioned. It's not. He wasn't even talking when the spit came out of his mouth. Either way, both of those guys are really fortunate that they didn't get more games and obviously the Lakers are two as a squad started out on three. You never liked to have must wins, but they plan against their fourth Western Conference opponent tonight. And it's the Phoenix Suns. If the Lakers don't win, that will be tomorrow. They don't win. Okay. It's going to show them that will put their season in a unique spot really early. Well, Chris, Paul was asked about the fight and the suspensions we have, you know, tried my cellphone. Trying to save poises possibly, you know, and you know, situation like that. I, like I said, I put myself. I got put in a situation where I got suspended. You know, you try to prevent that at all costs. Somebody on played as long that has never happened, but it is what it is. Gotta get ready for Utah tomorrow and I get ready for the clippers on Friday. Chris, Paul, sympathetic figure. He got spit on in the middle of the game, and then he got a left in the face and he got suspended, like, what is he supposed to do? What is he supposed to do that question? Why is Chris Paul? Suspending. This is why the league, in my opinion initially should have said. More games for both of those guys. But both Ingram in Ron Rondo allowed them to appeal and then get them to where they both missing between five and ten games. It has to be more that than now validates. Okay, Chris, Paul push him in a face. He did retaliate, put a finger in his face when he got spit on though he got hit on. But if what if Ingram or Rondo would have gotten eight, nine or ten games. And then Chris, Paul got two or one game, then it looks more modest. Yes. Let's since one got four one got three. He got like. Been a his sixty six percent as many games as Rondo did he spit in my face? I love that. Do the Rondo still acting like you didn't spend his face? What has love it on wax this this was on wax. One of the guys on camera and one of the guys read a statement there you go to good point. Well, del Maury, one of my favorite GM's he he just suddenly tweeted this after he saw Rondos comments about Chris Paul, what's that Jalen rose? Is that a pot in the kettle, both black. That's exactly what that is. I loved him more so much fix shots. Maury. I mean, let's not forget both. CPI three, an Rondo have had some turbulent times in the locker room behind closed doors players. That's just the personality of who they are. Think about it. They're both not considered wonderful athletes in today's dynamic, neither play above the rim and so for them to survive as long as they have and to have the success that they've been able to. Garner a lot of toughness and endurance has come with it, and that's what they are players. The Denver Nuggets are now four and, oh, do you think there's carry Harris, dunking on the kings in Sacramento? Is this a blip or is this something that will continue? Can they really contend in the Western Conference? This is a trend and saying contend means you can compete with the Golden State Warriors and other than the Boston Celtics and or Toronto Raptors at this point in the season, I don't see any teams in a league doing that. It'd be the words correct without booking when they get full strength, it's going to be different. So it's gonna be interesting to see how that plays out. But I just wanna make this all about the nugget doing it without will Barton. They were able to take a flyer, Michael porter Jr. in the lottery antedates and Isaiah Thomas two of those guys, they hope that they're going to get something out of in the future. Let's talk about the on court. Performs Gary Harris as you just saw tacking basket issue, three. Saying Jamal Murray, terrific back court, love them, but you've loud it and you said that they were going to come into their own this year? The joker, everybody knows that that guys, I'm a huge fan of his, no, the double doubles. The assist how smart smarty is a house guilty is really unlocks the floor for role players like Millsaps who's reinventing himself in Denver. So like I believe that definitely they'll be a playoff team. I can't necessarily say that they're gonna make it to the Western Conference finals juice yet. I don't know if they have that level of debt, but I have big hopes but another under too. I just want to curb everyone's enthusiasm right now. They had a great winning. The war is a great one, but the other teams they have played are the kings, the sons and the clippers. All three of those teams have noticed sniffing the playoffs. They're all three of those teams are centrally tanking. All ready. So like I need to see a little bit more before I start getting excited about the, but it shows you that those teams are on schedule, which means they have an opportunity to give wins. And they have beaten ago, stay wars, as I mentioned without boogie which show that they can play with the big boys. So really impressive and they have a distinct home court advantage, Mojase legitimate. That's why they wanna get up and down the floor thought you're talking about different vantage play, fast paced. You're talking about different home advantage. The nuggets have in Denver. Imagine what I'm thinking of medicinal. Well, he talked about boogie. Jaylen by the name of DeMarcus cousins. Also known as. This bad news for the rest of the NBA Jalen rose. This bad news for the rest of the NBA. We'll practice limited. He's just practicing here. We see boogie doing yeah, he's got a shirt off. Usually we have surgery, they'll take their shirt off a little bit before the game shape, but boogie is practicing. He isn't scrimmaging, but I really think that we're going to see bookie in the calendar year of twenty eighteen play professional basketball. So we start a stats in productivity. Clearly what Sacramento and obviously graduating to a playoff team in New Orleans. Unfortunately, he wasn't truly able to compete the entire time because he got injured. Nope, but now is when boogie now becomes mainstream and people that have not really paid attention to his track are now going to become fans of his. And the reason why he scored more points to any guy in the league that hasn't been in the playoffs and based on him being demonstrative and somebody that argues that the rest in place. Emotional ended up in bad situations in reason to be upset, there was no reason to watch him on getting a lot of technical fouls. So for him to now be on a stage where he's needed and it's gonna be really productive at all of the things that they're weekend. I'm telling you right now. Remember I told you points in the paint post up points emit range point. Those are weaknesses of the Golden State Warriors. He's immediately gonna be upgrading all of those scenario. How long does it take? Cooperate someone with boogie skill set into a team like the words because he does really overnight, really, here's why, because the ball has energy in fines. The open guy is not like they're coming down each time and saying, we're going to designate who we give the ball to. Of course you won't Kadian Steph to take the lion's share of the shots, but they're getting it off action. They're getting it off movement and because boogie shoot at three, but also handled a ball and make plays with it. He's gonna fit right in like a taller version of Draymond green. There has. Offense of skills while Draymond green is better defensively clearly. Do you think they will ever dribble down just posted boogie? Yes, of course. No question about it. You have to because they're going to have so many different mismatches and teams trying to switch. That's what you used to do. It gives them only goes Pachulia, oh, we live with him on the pulse, or they got jail McGee will live with him on the post. So now you have to pick your poison. I want the warriors win this here. You know why? Why? So Kate equally AD can. Bag ax, you. Room for the warriors. Katie's looked great in the orange and blue in Madison Square Garden. I can't wait. Ask his brother. He's already here. That'd be a good look. He's already here. Well, someone else's on a move. Jimmy Butler still on the timber wolves still. Here we are four weeks after he. I sort of like news broke that he requested straight. He said he requested straight months ago. Well, he's four days after disease. Now we have Bronwyn horse appearing on house candies podcast, and we said that the heat clippers Mavericks and rockets are still putting together packages for Jimmy Butler heat Mavericks clippers and rockets. Where do you think he would best fit? Where do you think he ultimately ends up. A, he probably wants to end up with a team that's going to give him a maximum contract. And I don't see that happening with Houston. No, because they've already pay CP hearten Capella. It could happen with the clippers because they had the cap space. It should be able to happen if you Miami because you're moving contracts in order to get him up. And who was the last name Mavericks and the Mavericks? Of course, they get using gray a love. The fact that they have a terrific backward Dennis Smith and Luca Danni adding other would be kind of nice and probably that would mean costing them. Harrison Barnes was they were doing requisite pieces to go with it. So I like all of the teams that are employees don't be surprised. More teams don't get discussed. How long do you think it'll be before he gets moved? So somebody come with the right deal. The owner says he wants a move, and if you're a team in particular, who also happens to be the head coach, you're not an. In any rush or any way, shape or form going to happen? Man rested a game already early in the season against hope Mavericks. I'm just saying we just talked about them acquiring them. Do you think it is best for the of to play him and have him play well or to continue to rest him, I think is important for him to play in play well, but he lived his best life. It's a free style year for him freestyle freestyle freestyle. You're gonna have a freestyle years, a freestyle freestyle Dallas, the bus leave at ten, forty, five. I'm gonna. Go ahead. I'll see y'all get back to fans. It was boom me at the beginning of the game, giving me MVP chess, and I knew that that will happen because he plays whatever. I feel like every year that you work on the show is a freestyle year for you. Freestyle show for you treat countdown to get up their jobs. This is a freestyle show for you. You can't say that anymore. Since we moved to ESPN two been dressing of keeping a fresh cut. I've been angles have been preface. Okay, good. You're about. I'm glad you're dressing. I'm glad you wearing clothing on the show. Jalen rose. Early days close. It was a little weird. So here we are Jalen rose and we always say we, the people they want. So part of this is just asking the people to ask us questions and whether things are cultural or regional. We're not talking about stereotypes here is not how we explore the nuances of our complicated tapestry of a society, no doubt. Are you prepared to explore some of these nuances? Yes. Are saying the word nuance, cultural or regional. Universal university. Okay. The first one is from Wiseman co, and he says, baby gender reveals cultural for regional cultural. I've never considered doing a baby gender reveal. It seems like they're all the, they're all like the thing now. But if you do if you just Google all of the people that have, I think cultural will be the answer. I'm not sure do think people look like me and people look like you are more apt to baby gender, reveal. It looked like you really? Yes. I don't think so. I think it might be. I think it might be universal. I've seen it. I've never. I've never ever considered doing this. I don't know why this phenomenon. Now when you were growing up, did people do baby gender reveals of course not. I think it's generational generational baby. Here's why is social media didn't exist. So maybe they were happening in the world didn't know about it. I'm pretty sure it didn't just start. I would say is probably more regional. Maybe it's just getting it's getting more combat about it. It's getting all pop the balloon in the powder and the insider, throw this baseball at you and you hit it is cut into the cake die. So many. There's so many people that have opinions about it, but I like it a lot. So Solidarity's fun. Get your family and friends involves great. You know what? When my wife was pregnant, the second time we always, I wonder if it's a boy or girl. Wonder if it's a boy or girl. You know what? Never cross my mind. How many are in there. They should have a, we don't have twins review. Thank God. We don't have. Next. This was from j. j. view sixteen cultural regional sleeping with the fan on through the winter shutout reg shot at the whole crew love yellow new. So Jay, that's easy sleeves and on in the wage. I think that has not doing in the mid west and east regional January or hold on. I do. I sleep at the pain on I like circulating the air. I like the sound, the white noise the home of the fan. I sleep with the fan on in the winter. Interesting. I like that it might be cultural. It might be cultural. There were times in our house that we didn't have heat. So I understand that theory of somebody use a kerosene heaters and using a fan of blow it a little bit just to keep the air fresh freezing outside. I ain't trying to fan no. Were slept in a winter jacket. Before course, when a jacket Scully. Yes, we outfit, I call my landlord a winter jacket. Yes. What is happening here? Yes, real character. Next, this person came out with a strong statement, not so much of question. It's essex. Is a fat. Motorcycles are cultural. Additional motorcycles universal? Nope, cultural universe, their cultural universal, their culture. When you see someone on a motorcycle, you know, they look more like me. Motorcycle club not individual. Now your cultural Jalen modified ready admit this. And again, there's obviously exceptions to the rule. Don't get me just because look, I look like, and I ride a motorcycle at. I'm just saying in general, when I see some of the motorcycle with a helmet on a tinted element, when they take the helmet off, they're gonna look more like me than your bus. And I know the questions about motorcycles, but there are different types of bikes like our love mopeds. What about Harley? Davidsons? Those are culture that's cultural Harley Davidson. We can agree on that. Yes, Harley. David agriculture, JC out one of course, big shots JC in finally, from one of our co producers matatus, one of our international fans watched the result after blowing your nose. I'm gonna make a confession here. I've never ever. Ever blow my nose and out that it never my life. I've never blow my nose and not looked at it. I have never done that. I have said, I gotta be cultural. You think it's cultural. How about not curious this? You're not curious player knows how about this? I'm not curious, but I got a different question for you. I don't want it. I don't wanna know. Now. About me about. Rayle rebound show. We've repair so much on the show in a here. You go at the end of a saving and talk about whatever you want, probably get as fire. What about what you do a number to wipe your back. Okay, exactly what I thought you were going to say. That's exactly what I thought you were gonna say and said, it's not bad. That's not. They are Derry. We are definitely getting those. We're definitely getting cancelled. Anybody show this to that was shocked if we didn't get Kansas. The perfect thing for everybody. Perfect. He put us on national television and listen to what you're calling about. Trying to you're going to do this. Everybody Tilson a bathroom. They have gone down stick to the rundown Jalen rose. That means dick to the run now stick to the silver on. Jalen rose. Please keep it clean today on the program. Always highly trained profession. So I can't believe we're about to discuss what we're about to discuss. I can't believe this happened. Derek Carr had to go on wax onto Twitter and defend himself and claim that he was not crying during a football game. Let's take a look at the play. He goes back and his line doesn't protect him and he goes down hurt that looked like it hurt, and then there's this replay. We heard his shoulder. He looks distraught. It looks like it could be crying, Dylan, rose, cry gate, not spy gate did Derek, Carr, cry, heating, cry, even if there were tears coming out of his eyes. I don't consider that like a boo which is way different. If a two hundred seventy five pound man runs as fast as he can hit. She was hard as he can and another one does the exact same thing definitely play isn't over. Into the ball is down. You'll see some tears come towards their reports that he's lost the locker room because he cried during the game. I would. I would more likely follow somebody that crash during the game, then I would not follow them because they cried Joe. Here's how that works. The coach and a quarterback, both got one hundred million dollar deals. Therefore, if they can't move the quarterback, they're gonna move. Everybody has issue with their kinda why they lost the locker room because they traded everybody in the locker room that right, you lose Loughrey gonna Dave. At one, everybody. Room and I'm more that's how you lost the locker room. This whole thing just kind of crazy people sleep on day loss Crabtree to he was really productive, especially in a resume Jalen, you know, I cry easy. I cry really easy, Abba confession I cried during the latest, Winnie the Pooh movie. Did you did twice but was a sad? Yeah, it was emotional. It had a very emotional tone. So here's what who the proves that emotional now I'm not gonna judge you at all because what happens with men, we're taught to be so bulletproof and not show our feelings and emotions. It's okay to express yourself. You cry, movies. I am not. You're not a big crier now. I'm just not a big crier. I'm gonna make that a life goal of mine and make you cry. No, don't do that. Don't do that because that means something hurt me if I cry. Why would you wanna do that? Because we're friends. I like to hurt my feelings that's just wrong. This is the type of person I just wrong. I'm sorry. I'm quitting this program. Adam Schefter hurt my feelings. You call it. David engine, Colby, Adam, Schefter feelings. He tweeted the giants traded, Eli, dot dot, dot. And I felt for it, it's else felt for to Adam, schefters responsible, journalists, Wisey teasing like that for all you guys get his followers. Obviously, he's talking about the giants trading ally, apple, not ally manning and the latest is they traded, Damon, Harrison, schnatter known as snacks snacks, and where did they trade him to. I'm sorry. The second one was industrial necks. He gets the chance to go from a squat. This tanking to one this, rebuild him, trying to do something that will work on it. Now. Rebuilding? Yeah, trying to do things. We didn't sound very calm. Anytime we be Brady and Rogers in the same season, you saw how we just took care of business with the dolphins. We're trending up, don't sleep. Do you still feel like the lions could win the division? Yes. In the currently really Minnesota's divest team individual, I would say the lines of the worst team in the division Nell stop it. I would put a low the bear. If you did the show with somebody else, you wouldn't say that, but this you do it with me. They don't get the benefit of the doubt. I'm tired to try. I'm trying to make you cry. I'm trying to do. I think our second or third, depending on what happens if Trubisky can stay consistent, I think for national consumption. Aaron Rodgers is amazing. Still playing in Dillon with injuries, but they have a lot of holes in particular defense will the giants trade Eli manning before the deadline? No, I don't think they really. I don't believe that they will because when people say that, that means that somebody else is gonna look at the giants to say, you know what? Last doing? Great guy. He's gonna take to make thirty million dollars a year show. We pay thirty million dollars locker room. Exactly. Like if you're the Jaguars you're not ally manning away from winning a Super Bowl. You're just not. So don't even don't even bother. Don't give any assets teddy Bridgewater tyrod Taylor. How about Nick? Foles? He only wanna Super Bowl last year. Those players can help you win the Super Bowl, you know, who cannot help you in a Super Bowl alignment. I'd rather have Peyton min mini a real. That's why he was on a field, big, bro, smart. He liked people take shots. My little brother. I'm gonna make sure they see the sheriff standing on the field. I got us back the intimidating presence of Peyton Manning doubt. I'm intimidated by Peyton Manning rapper singer TAT's who have post Malone. I like post Molo to his songs are really good. I don't wanna like pose alone, but when I listened to it, I like it. Tattoos are questionable some questionable decisions. He's made with the tattoos there, a lot of questionable decisions. Well, that's Spokane from somebody that doesn't have any tattoos, anybody that get some somebody else can say it's questionable. That's just how it were dog. He says, always tired on his face under his is that's not questionable to you. Not if he's always tired, you got around them all the time. I'm not where he not in a studio. He slid if he gets a good, a good night's rest, always tired. I'll still tired. He's a great song maker, huge fan of his anybody out there that can hear my voice. Let him know that he's more than welcome to join our program. Okay. Jalen rose. You post Malone have more in common than bad. Tattoos post Malone. You familiar post mates. I am. He ordered over forty thousand dollars of post mates last year, six hundred sixty deliveries in fifty two different cities. When he's on tour, he gets post mates and now posts for himself. He gets it for the whole entire crew, which is something that Jalen rose does it least once a week once every two weeks, you get food for the whole entire crew. But Jalen I have to ask you this question. I wanna live this lifestyle. I wanna get faced hats. I wanna order forty thousand dollars worth of food. I wanna sit on the couch all the time. Look at me right there that greasy food I got in my nice mater apartment. Decorate the walls of a better. What do you think about those tattoos? I like your outfit TAT's. Don't go well for you. The eyebrows are a little Bushey, but it's all natural. You look, handsome apartment. You see the, I love soup tenure here that the stands out to me no kids. What would you cope do without the kids? That's the thing is I would be ordering post mates. I would be ordering so much post mates if I didn't have the kid so much posts. So do you think I should order forty thousand dollars worth of post mates next year? You've probably order forty thousand dollars worth for food anyway. It's just they're not delivering it to you, and it's not on post mates where you can't see how much it costs. We all spend money eating out more than you realize you think I spent forty thousand dollars eating out your so rich of your silver of no concept of money is idea. Things cost are so rich. Let me forget how rich you let me do know, don't bring it down last time freaked out. Last time you in free started talking about on the show, is it on me. Like the gas in the car, the time it takes go onto the market, all of the things you buy at the market, the time it takes to cook the time. It takes to order food when you go to a restaurant. How much would a restaurant if you take that totality of pretty sure you spent forty thousand dollars in a family of four. You're talking about time. You got a family of four. This obvious money. We got time for one more female voicemail on this beautiful Wednesday. Let's get it heavy shot after veggie. This is Jennifer in Oregon, longtime listener, first time caller. I have a question, cultural regional or generational. My husband said it's not okay to say the bombs I call the bomb that I really like. He said, it's too nineties. However, I heard Jalen saying the on on the October nineteenth pot so question, is it okay or not? Okay. To call things the bomb. Thanks so much hope to hear from you onto winner out. Here's the thing. Jalen doesn't even know it yet, but he's washed. I'm washed. We're not suited to me as questions. Yes, we are. Yes, we are. I think calling things the bombs a bit outdated. Yes. Her Shali. Yes, we are due. I know what you mean when you call it the bomb. I think that's fine. But Jennifer, you sound like a young lady. You should be onto news, not true, not true. Not true saying, let me your game. Let me David. Go ahead Jalen. I love music and one of the things I appreciate about being a child of the seventies who happens to be from the mid west. You got the flow from the west coast. We got the flow from the east coast. We had Motown is that it gave me a death in music that I felt was unparalleled. When I started to travel and meet people from other cities and states, I draw in talk about grandmaster flash and Mel Email, and I could talk to you about Kendrick, Lamar. I could talk to you about teddy pinta grass or the four tops, or the Jackson Five. Talk to you about any current ours today in. So the reason why bring this point up is. I purposely use terms from other generations and or decades did I like because all of the things that are happening now usually have been recycled, whether boot cut pants, how you rot, different outfits, jackets, and lasers like all of that stuff recycles like you think you're doing it for the first time, but it's actually been done before in like koala with this braids, whether it goes out of style or not. I'm still doing it when everybody else starts to do it. Again is the bomb where you wanna draw the line though, calling things the bomb. If somebody you. So yeah, because you're washed, that's why purposely wear Cartier's purposely wear ca Zales because things just I is another reason to I'm going to buy all of the things that I wanted to child at. I couldn't afford. I don't care what still in the list. What's this has nothing else to say. You've got it all. Got it all covered and not only by them and wear them. So you see me rocking 'Pumas Jacoby would tell you. I've been waiting my whole life to have an unlimited supply size fifteen poem. So you're gonna see me Rockin every since b street while style breaking crust grew. So it's okay to do things. Now that happened in the prior decade because be a leader, be a taste maker. People follow you. Oh man, you do a lot of older thing. That answer was the bomb Jalen. That was the bond. That doesn't sound funny bomb. Dig. That doesn't sound a little funny to you. It doesn't doesn't feel right. Coming out of my ma- that's the bomb. I want appreciate all the collars women crush Wednesday, tribe, Christina, Jennifer term crush we always appreciate your call out. We're going to be back tomorrow with another dope pod to step to Jalen. We're not done. Why not? Guys, I love speaking office. Let's talk about LeBron James.

Absolute shit yoursel, really bad. Yeah. Good. Always good to really bad. Yeah. No, actually, pretty good today. I'm actually rather excited about our guest. We have today. I mean, you already know because you can read it in the title, but we're pumped to have on someone who created and wrote for a lot of the television and movies that I may be left that we talked about eight and a half. Eight and a half of my life. So far we got Larry Charl as by TV studios so excited. Hi, larry. I guess I don't want to interrupt. So I just listened. And that'll be an interesting podcast. We're so excited to have you. We will not engage with you at all for the next. If you had John cage, I would just do the whole thing. So. Guard. We can say we did. Just keep saying. It's like a Bank. We have tons of episodes where it's just screaming at each other. Third silent. Gas would be perfect. Some people like it. So Larry, we always start with like, what did what did you watch growing up like, or at least when you start to get into TV or movies? What what what was the thing that excited you the most when I was very indiscriminate when I was a kid. I watched as much TV as I possibly could the weirdness with me. And I don't exactly know where this comes from excuse me is I was fascinated by the credits. Always. Oh, well, and I would read the credits and like, wow, directing writing I was very fat by like even f troop look, I knew high adver back was director of after. And I looked for his work. Elsewhere. You know, they also had a crazy idea that if you were the star of a sitcom even if it lasted less than a season, you are major star, and you'd be a star forever. And then I'd see that person a little role in something two years. And I realize that just going from casting session the cast accession they got lucky with a series. And it's so a lot of the allusions. They had were shattered as I got more deeply into TV. I'm so impressed by that. But I feel like it took me so long to notice the credits or care. I think I was in my twenties when my dad was like, oh, you should watch another Martin Scorsese movie. I'm like more than goodfellas. That's if I may that's a big part of my upbringing is my father was a failed actor and comedian while there you go, wait. So yes, he hates you. Along. A jealous. Dad is an insane came at a World War Two and used a sort of like buying a house or something. He used the GI Bill to go to the American Academy of dramatic art. That's you know, Jason Robards was he was he was but he failed. He did not make an engaged up on that tried comedy did stand up. He had a stage name. This is the truth called psycho, the exotic neurotic that was his name on stage, and he didn't make it. For clarity. So you ever tried podcasting? It's where a lot of us fail back. That's what I think important part of that was he was consumed with show business. So instead of like being tested with math or science or history thinks that would have been useful to me. Here we go who started this movie or what tell me what else do we can? He was in. And it was like that kind of stuff, but I was constantly having to you know, SO I absorbed at all. And I know it all now, and I've been spewing out really my whole life. The stereotype of like an ex jock dad forcing their kids. The comedy. I fear strikes out. Wow. Your mom. What was the mother was also my mother's very sweet, my father was kind of a very ambitious, and and kind of angry that thinks didn't work out. My mother was very sweet person. But she also was like show business was her inner veins, and she could really explore it until she wound up in a condo in Florida. And then she became like the star of the condo shoes. She'd be like Chicago playing the orange new and it was like really it was weird. But you know, she was really super happy. She was dancing and singing. And so she actually found an outlet for that kind of stuff later in life. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. I do remember the first time I started to like link credits together when I'm like, oh, I like this movie and this movie and your and like someone would say that's the same director are the same writer. Yeah. And you're like oh for like, we always talk about how for a while. We didn't like I didn't even know. Like, there were writers Morris is the coolest commercials had actors. I just was. That's who's in the commercial. I didn't think beyond for breeze. Oh my God. My dad used to also because he had made some friends in dramatic school who also wound up staying in show business, but not as actors he had a friend who was the stage manager at the at Sullivan show, or we had a friend who was the lighting director at the Kraft music hall, and he would take me we would go visit or he knew the guy who gets you into the side entrance at Radio City during Christmas, you know. And when it had a big shows, and he would take me behind the scenes to like, the I would see behind the scenes of the Sullivan show or those kind of shows, and I also became very fascinated by that process of like, oh, this is how it's done you. It's way different than what you see when you just watching TV. What did you dad do after he stopped actually drifted? He did a lot of different things. I mean, he just kind of went from career to career never really found. The thing that he was really looking for again never found the fulfillment again. Wow. And what was that like for you as a kid watching that? I mean, did you feel the anxiety of that? That or I don't know. How does it? How did you take them from Brighton Beach, and it's so far removed from show business even though as a turn out it's the Jamaica of comedy, really? Woody Allen, Larry David Mel Brooks. You know, they're all from the though that at the time when I was a kid. But I knew that comedy was something that I was tracked to my father was on all the time. You know, that's an I I was kind of more the critic that I was the funny one, you know, I just kind of absorbing and so that's that was a big difference, actually. Yeah. This pretty wild. That's like a true origin story for someone their bones as like a longtime writer producer learn about behind the scenes Cyrus onto to be in in show business. But I had no clue what to do how to do it. And he wasn't saying we do this do that. He had he was the anti role model in a sense. So I had to really kind of just have this vague dream, which by the way, you could where I grew up in Brooklyn, very tough neighborhood. You could share like, oh, I want to act or I want to be an artist. It was like you would not make it home. So I'm from Long Island than I used to say that people thought I was gay because I love movies. I couldn't be. Those kind of things really brands you in Brooklyn what part of Long Island. Do you find that freeport, the south shore NASA? My brother lives a Widmaier. Oh, okay. Cool. Yeah. My mom's still out there. Now in bellmore living in the role. And what's the age difference with your brother when you're going out? He's two and a half years almost three years actually younger than I am. Okay. Did you did you kind of influence the household with your things that you were interested in or was not at all? I didn't land on. I mean, yes, I think in terms of like artistic sensibilities or references like for music or movies. Yeah. I was probably my brother's biggest influence, certainly, but he didn't really have much choice either. We shared a room until I got out of high school. So he was forced to and I control the TV and a little black and white TV. Yes. Oh, wow. That's that's that big deal. Dad is a TV and movie night. That's my parents got divorced at a certain point. And so, but but all that time there was always a black and white. We didn't get a color TV to like, you know, very late. But I had this little black and white TV without the tuner on it. So you have like a wrench to kind of turn turn it so quickly for so long. So so I control that. And I also I was supposed to be asleep. Most of the time, and I was up watching stuff and freaky myself out. Also because I'd watched like horror movies. Stay up all night watching movies terrible dreams, and you're free to tell you. Why are you? So scared like not because I was watching shit all immagination. I remember being like when I first got TV my room. I mom being like, you're so tired, and it's not because I stayed up. Watching r rated each until three never together. How tired I was at school? Yeah. That's all the time. No kids should be forced to wake up at six, narrowing like sleep is the most like anabolic thing you could do for yourself, and we make kids setting alarm, so they can get up, and and pledge we'll sooner time of your life. Really when you're young. Did you can really kind of you do that go without sleep? It goes from the old child labor laws. Kids in the minds, they want long shifts. And what shows were you watching that really stand out to you? And you think back to that time. We'll there was a station channel eleven in New York WPI local station, and they had the three stooges and they had Popeye, and they had the little rascals say those were at Abacus Stella those were probably the big four for me to start with. You know? I mean, I watched those religiously there were on constantly it was impossible to avoid. And I would say those were the first shows because they were autumn read on after school is mostly school stuff. But a time you got to what was considered prime time at that time, you know, in those days, my parents were trying to get me to go to sleep by like eight o'clock when I was in elementary school, which I didn't go for. Yeah. But you had like Donna Reed show leave it to beaver was on at that time. I I absorbed like I said, I absorbed everything like I would watch show. Like, I remember it's about time which is about like a an astronaut that way. Winds up going out of space trip that he was a back in prehistoric times. How we can find it cliff. Oh, hey, we do have something. I wanna see this. It's about time. It's about space too, many minutes. Strangest place it's about. Travel faster than the speed of light here is there tale of the brave crew move. Barry. I love animated openings for live action shows. Yeah. Yeah. No rush, by the way. Five minutes, sir. That's the biggest thing we've learned a lodging all TV is how much slower while my case was very different. It's so calming so Franken litter who's the star of this. I thought he was like a major global star. He's on the show for six weeks. I've ever. Oh, man. That's great imaging coca. And then the next characters name is as gronk. That was played by Joey Ross who was also at a lot of different. He was in car fifty four we're aria, which is another popular show that type, but then amongst new shows when I was a kid I loved also see this show had that kind of science fiction element like my favorite Martian. There was there was a captain nice. There was a mister terrific all these kind of superhero half hours. But get smart was probably the ios. I I remember why get smart when I was a kid. My dad telling me, it was really funny me not believing him just because anything that looked old when I was a kid. I couldn't watch. And then coming around completely on it being like because then I would end up loving the naked gun movies. And my dad would then you're gonna you should watch police squad. You should watch. Get smart. My brother had a weird neurosis RIC his about black and white movies. And so he really scared just with any black who I move it. Which of course, I'd make a watch. I wanna see a clip of get smart, guess, what has all these shows have fantastic openings control. Different mix. This is. Atoms of different stuff. Created by Brooks, really. That's why Henry Carey, and I was too young to. Mel Brooks was at that time. I didn't know about the two thousand year old man. Well, this is actually over to the show. Yeah. Talk about slow, right? How long it takes the door? He's gonna come down that it wouldn't be one step. This. For the credits. All. Walk through four differ doors. Thing. The girl. She of the opening credits part of that in my mind. As my mind, a young female. Possible later and later years to do one in corporate Barbara fill them. Yeah. It's so funny to watch also that is very quintessential Mel Brooks that it's such a solid parody. Where you can't tell it to comedy. But the exception of the elevator doors opening to stairs, just one kind of subtle Joe. Right. And then the repetitive of the doors. You like this is an, but it's just now parody. I feel like is so ham. Fisted gets more was a really great show. It was very dense with humor. So there was a lot of jokes that would fly by it was like a Warner Brothers cartoons. You know, where there was a version of a level for kids? But if you're at adult, you could also get something out. We're stone teenager you against the same thing with this show this show had so many layers of jokes that you might miss them as a kid and still enjoy the show. I as you get older go while they're really making these references to jazz things or weird movies, and it was very very cool show. Yeah. That would be like the Simpsons for my generation. Yes. I remember watching it like and thinking, it was the funniest thing. And then watching it five years later and liking it even more wondering what I was getting out of it. You're missing all of this stuff. I remember when I finally saw clockwork orange and BART's costume made sense to me. Roese dressed up as Alex from clockwork. Get a reference finally a big part of being a young person especially in comedy like when I was a kid. I would watch site live at a first came on. For instance, they will make reference points. I didn't get. But I wanted to know what they were that was important to me. It's like they're making their in a world that I wanna be in. I wanna learn more about the squirrel. How do I get there? You know, that was a challenge from me from Brooklyn from Brighton Beach to figure that out. Yeah. And did you did your brother shared this interest with you? Or was it more your own thing? You know, he he he never really expressed to me any particular direction in life. So no, I wouldn't say he's a he's actually Qatar play plays guitar, but no he didn't have that. I had some some weird sort of laser focus on getting this done somehow. And I I knew that I was prepared to fail. I knew I was prepared to figure it out. And I think that was a very singular journey for me to a large degree it kind of feels like that is true for a lot of people with that experience. I feel the same way that like it was kind of something in my very internal like I knew that was my goal. But like I wasn't really chatting about it with everyone in my family. I was kind of like I knew I wanted to make people laugh forever. But I didn't know like I wasn't even thinking like TV and movie like I didn't understand. I like what the answer is. But I want to just do this. You just think I'm funny where are you from? I'm from Evanston, Illinois. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So I got I had the nice like Chicago, improv. Course funny to hear you say like all the shows you watch growing up, and it's like I wish I got into like good. Those those all aged well, like even watching three Agosta, it's quality comedy the shit. We watched growing going through it. It's like saved by the bell. I watched for full house. I watched for like dome. My seventy hours each and they suck. When you. When asked kid, I was also I was saying I was very indiscriminate. I'm giving you like the best. Shows that didn't last I watched divorce court. Thank you. Much better. At that time. So I really would just I just wanted to absorb coming out of that box. We talk about that a lot too. Is that like that any port in the storm when your child, and you're just like what's anything's better than homework? Larry Springer fully even tapped into that. I haven't even talked Springer which was the big thing in my house was we would beg my mom to let us watch the church channel instead of going to church on Sundays. We hated church so much more like compromise. And we watched one hour of the church channel. No. From TV. Sunday morning, seventy Sunday morning in New York, and probably a lot of places they had religious programming which I also get up really super early afternoon sleep at all. So I could watch those early morning cartoons. And but a lot of them. I didn't realize I we're Christian cartoon like TV and Goliath Frank. Yes. Oh, no. I never heard of that was the most eerie one of the most eerie shows a puppet show with Christian lessons to learn. Action or was the team America? Yes. Yes. America kind of spoofing. This thunderbirds. Moral Orel that's got ads. Pretty much. Yes. Yeah. Rudolf to this claim Asian, but it's kind of good looks good hole. And then the dog has to get help for him. You know, it's not gonna story because he didn't listen to his mother. Hey, always has a moral. The Lutheran church. Discerning adult. You would be like click as a kid you're like oh Gumby really also June Brooklyn to seek Mr. programming. I was really interested like I live next door to church. It was so scary to US Jewish kids who we would actually run past the church that we didn't get the church. So freaked out by the church. So these shows like privately at a savvy morning, I can watch myself. And I was kind of processing God is really Christian isn't. He's not. Go through questions while I'm going to school and ask you the rabbi and the trouble. I love you running past the church that we had a creepy neighbor whose house we ran by feels the same. But. You never come out, quote, you one of my mom's friends daughters came with us to church one time because she was like with us before on a Sunday, and she was Jewish and she started crying during laugh, and then her mom was like she had nightmares for like five days church. It's like, yeah. You know, then might be too young to like go to see something like that. Yeah. I never step. I never set foot in that church. They would have bazaars when we got older that have these church bazaars with gambling and all my friends were gamblers. So we'd hang out in the parking lot of the Trish. We never go inside the church ever burst into flames gambling church isn't that like oh God reading about the church. Let's just say gambling is low on. Discretion gods or? Take a break.

Larry the shows you watched you were saying they were a lot of them were wall to wall jokes, and that's not like that's kind of its own genre of comedy. And then I feel like a lot of your resume are those types of shows gonna show and those are the shows I MO most appreciated growing. I think it like, for instance, deters Seinfeld. I Larry Gerry and I shared that VAT kind of shared sensibility, those reference points those shows, and we like that quality we like that density. So that you might have missed jokes. That would make you come back and watch it because those shows this again, we grew up there were three three channels. And that was it. There was no other choice. You have you know, channel thirteen which was the PBS title. And then you NBC ABC CBS, and that was it. So you had to the local channels really were an outlet for these cool older shows, you know. They just ran them constantly, again, even the million dollar movie in New York that run the movie every single day twice a day. And if I was home, I would watch all fourteen Reuters movie until I memorized that movie. I would memorize these movies. You know, that was a bigger, but it just because you know, we get to a point where we were kids where like memorizing a movie or having like knowing lines was like such a cool like status point. When have a distinct memory of my brother coming into my room after my mom went to sleep and him. And I sang word for word the movie cable guy plays really love to do that too though. That was like like the funny boys at school. We're just doing. Yeah. He was still of comedy routines with like that. Also, man loved memorize stand up comedy routines and just doing my brother that kind of stuff. I'm sure a lot of comedians started out just getting laughs doing other people's. Sure, there's comedians doing it. Now. That's Robin Williams style. I'm talking more. Like, just reiterating. Yeah. Because then you can you kind of teaches you timing. Yeah. What I mean like it's like doing Shakespeare play and then learning acting from that anything about. Six fear play. That I'm more about save by the bell. If I may say by the bills could example of a lot of shows that were also on when I was a kid like leave it to beaver. They weren't really Utah wall. To wall joke shows there were shows that were really kind of domestic sitcoms that weren't really that funny. They were mildly. Amusing seem like they were trying to be funny, and it was kind of semi realistic, and but somehow or another because it was so maybe removed from my own experience. I was addicted. I love even Donna Reed. I love those kind of shows they weren't funny at all. But they were on and length. And as a kid, I really admired teenagers any show that had teenagers. I was like this is cool. I love it too. When you're not a teenager teenagers are the coolest. Yes. Oh that makes because that was part of it too is like hot boys and hot girl. Yeah. Yeah. That makes a lot of your first job. Like, how do I wanna know how you got to where you end up? I don't know cute to Los Angeles. And again, as I said, I had I knew I wanted to get into showbiz have no idea how to do it. Woody allen. Who's from again that neighborhood? And in the sixties was like a God. Yes. A comedy people again a lot of things change. But at that time Woody Allen was a seminal force in comedy. He was Kevin Hart. He was all really was. He was Tori had a vision. And he came out of nowhere to do all that. And he had like a pretty solid writing resume to read. He was on great show. I what he did. And I used to my role model he used to mail and jokes to the local columnists, and he started writing jokes for comedians. And I thought that's what I will do I came out to California and this is before computers and not that I use a computer now. Not just. So the Ted Kaczynski vibe goes all the way down. Piece of paper. I came out here. And I was I was car hop. I was valley and after I got off my shift. I would take a piece of paper a couple of pieces of paper handwritten jokes on and stand in front of the comedy store. And if I saw comedian that I recognized I was so I would try to sell them so cool and eventually started selling jokes to these community. They knew me as somebody who had good jokes. And that's awesome. Yeah. I remember Jay Leno coming up to me as and he was really nice to me. And he said, I'll give you ten bucks. If it works on stage, and you could watch because there was a window there. You can watch the comedian on stage. And when he did my joke, I could see the laugh, and I made ten dollars. Track down. It was a very happen to be a golden age of stand up in Los Angeles. At that time, Richard Pryor was actually what years are we this is the late seventies. So so Richard Pryor is trying out his betrayal for his concert movies, Robin Williams is just coming in the two kings of the comedy store. -ironically were David Letterman. Jay leno. They were the two kings at that time. Even then so hard to imagine. I mean, we've heard forever that they were like the best. But like just knowing them from late night. It's so hard to imagine them just says standups trying to make it. I don't know. I really like imagine. It's like every once in a while. I do think of like Jimmy Fallon as a rookie on SNL tonight show host had of weird. We're very well season comedians by that they were super funny guys on stage. They were great. They will both grew. But there was a lot of great people at that time and a lot of people looking for material and one of those guys got a job on a TV show and recommended me. The TV show Fridays which was the like a late nights or Saturday live type show stood out here live, and is that the one that Andy Coffman famous. Okay. That's yeah. Right. We eat. So I just want to ask you didn't have an instinct to be like, maybe I should be on stage telling these jokes, I tried. I tried stand up. Also, my problem was my fury about stand up. Is you have to be the best version of yourself on stage. And I found the comedians could sort of really conjure up their persona on stage and be like a bitter version of themselves. Like, I would watch these comedians come alive on stage. And I was always way too self conscious at that age particularly to let go like that. And I felt that I could never reach that level. So I started to sell the jokes instead. Yeah. Nauseous literally get nauseous before I went God. Yeah. And I could not people a lot of people feel that and they overcome. Yeah. I did not really overcome it. Maybe I should have waited a little you found another actually found a better version for myself feel like showing up with jokes. Like that would make me really nervous. Trying to that. Which that and I would be more comfortable China sell myself standing there in front of strangers than going up kind of idolize or look up to and being like, I was very Daesh is- young, man. And I. I had no fear. And I didn't know any better. Right. That's part of it too. Is when I think back like, I remember a there used to be a Dalton's bookstore in Hollywood Boulevard. Okay. And I used to have a little Volkswagen bug like a fifty nine bug used to keep all mice. I used to write scripts classless writing movie scripts all the time, and I have thirty scripts in the back seat of my case. I saw somebody famous. I was going to give them a script, you know. And I was Dalton's bookstore. And I'm a little over six feet tall. You know? I was at that time was really unground. Holck? Richard Dreyfuss there who at that time was like a major jaws close encounters Dr. And I was like, oh, this is too good to have to give them a script. So around to my car guys came back, and I charged at him with the script scared. The shit out of. He backed away like I was going to stalk him. But I was trying to make it. Okay. But it was too late. You know? So I was audacious that way though. I would I would take advantage of like if I saw somebody I wouldn't I used to park cars in century city and David Steinberg comedian used to I used to park his car. I would give him material that I would pitch myself. I visually started writing for him. Also, really impressive. Because there are so many people you could see doing that. We get the fuck away or like or your jokes horrible or whatever. But you obviously, we're good. So that's the only that's the thing. Here's all if you're you're actually talented to get because I feel like you hear that a lot about weird Hollywood break in stories. Yeah. Some of them are like that is kind of how rom coms in hindsight or all like psycho behavior followed her around for year. Now, she's in love with me. It's like weirdly rewarding that and that you hear stories like they showed up in character. And it's like, but it's just it's not advice. So who are like, I should do it. And it's like, no, you shouldn't because layers good. So. Really good. Maybe you could take a crazy angle. But it was very ironic. I was very self-conscious on station, but I was completely own self conscious in the street. So I had no problem protein people. I had no problem with rejection. I was okay with all that. So I was able to sort of get past it and sell my wares. So you got hired on Friday. Friday's Larry David was an actor and writer on that show. Hey, we see a little bit of that. I guess. I guess. And Michael Richards too. There there. Yeah. This is Michael Richards sketch, in fact that the character he has. Late. So young. These are also like nine minutes sketching. Onto. Over. Okay to suit. Larry was here. He Brits scream, right? Throw something. Wild to see he's so you say. I met Larry end. Larry was from that golden triangle, I'm talking about. And he was older than me. And immediately took me under his wing. I mean, it was bright. And boy to like, well, we had we was similar in so many ways. I mean, we have a lot of different since abilities a lot of different reference points because of our generational difference. But basically, our anger are dry really flow together. Very well. We will together world of bitter comedy. And so we wound up becoming bonding just getting very very close, and that really changed my life. I could say all honesty that he's probably the most influential person in my adult life because I met him when I was like twenty two, you know, he's been still important person up to this day that sell amazing because you've you work you worked on Seinfeld and also curb wraps. I mean that was a bit after this. Did you guys heep working together? We went through. I think it'll be interesting Larry to the little gig site live. You know, a lot of these things that like, for instance, my my stocking Richard Dreyfuss, we did a version of that on Seinfeld where Michael stocks, Kramer, stocks. Fred savage. Oh, right. Yes. That's from that incident. You know week didn't isn't Larry's SNL story that he got the quit. And then just kept showing showed up, George, David. It's really funny. You tells the story because he quit walked out onto sixth avenue from Rockefeller walking streak on. What did I just do? He just went back on. Nobody. What he also try? He was so angry at dick Enberg who was the producer of the show at that time. When Lorne Michaels wasn't doing it that he tried to put a Mickey in his drink at the wrath. And it didn't work out. But we also did that on the show. He has that gig. Yes one year, but otherwise, and I had a couple of little gigs as well. Weird things that I did. But basically for number of years, we're both pretty unemployed as so we'd kinda look out for each other. Something came up we kind of throw it to you know, to Larry or to me how ever it worked out. And then eventually he got the chance to do the Seinfeld chronicles, this pilots effect, and I had the good fortune. I mean, again, he we we sketch writers, you know, as we never done sitcom, and he showed me the four the first four scripts that he wrote and I got to read the first four scripts of Seinfeld before was show. And I remember I sat in the Bellagio hotel in West Hollywood, he was going to a meeting a Castle Rock, and I sat there rid all the scripts. I was laughing so hard. I'd never read anything like it was like the robbery the ex girlfriend. You know, the busboy some of the great. Chinese restaurant. And I thought this is an amazing. It's it's a singular thing, it's a masterpiece. And so he wanted to hire me on the show at that time, but I had no succumb experience. And they didn't trust him because he had no succumb experience and already like we're giving one Larry chance. The second. So the only the first name. Yes, we never trust the person with two I. That's a good philosophy. So I couldn't get hired that first set of shows which was like a pilot and then for episodes or whatever. And then they picked it up for thirteen. He was able to become the show runner. And he was able to hire me. And that's when I started work. Read a bunch about that just in different. But how like that was that show could have easily just gone away after that first little batch. It was someone who took a risk by saying you could do thirteen and try again shows a complete accident, and that's one of the reasons such a wild phenomenon because it wasn't actually if had gone through the normal channels. I'm convinced it would never made it through it was developed through late night at that time looking for a substitute show. Once a month for side, I live so they developed all these different shows. And this was going to be one of those shows they liked it so much they thought this. Maybe we could shoot a primetime pilot. We'll see how that works, and they shot that, and it was very mixed reaction famously. They did the testing and tested terribly. You know, the hated George. They just hated the whole show, really. And for some reason they decided to do for episodes as a kind of a test. So I like two years ago by during this time, also, you know, it's that's that's one of the problems give me things produce it takes so long and eventually the four shows, and they still weren't convinced the demographics favorable NBC was in last place at the time, which again is one of those happenstance things. So there were a little more desperate than they might have normally been and they put it on the air, and it died at first it died for a long time. We will lose to show called Jake and the Fatman. We used to use lose to Richard Lewis's anything, but love Jamie Lee Curtis which caused great tension between Larry and rich and who were childhood friends. Eventually caused even more problems with Seifi became successful in that show got cancelled. So it took a while for it to catch on, you know, it was catching on enough that they filter it sort of stick with it. And that's when it started to move it after cheers. Which at that time was the number one show Larry famously they said we want to move you to after. Cheers. And he was like anybody doesn't watch the show. Now could go fuck themselves refuse to move the show. Everybody's like, no, no, no. I love your pride. You know of juice. I agree with Castle Rock in and. It's really like that this lesson should be taught at executive school because I feel like every comedy gets like, eight episodes, ten episodes, thirteen episodes, and it does catch on. They're like, well, it's cancel it's like you need people to accidentally catch the show in order. You find later on Netflix or something. Now, it'd be like bell throw up some season that didn't last somewhere. This is fucking good house. They also everyone gets better at their job in the second season. You have a better idea of what people want the writers are all a better idea the actors character, it's like you can't blame a show for not catching on intended. Want the pilot to be the worst episode go somewhere problem is everything is really all the judgments based on that pilot? As the potential of it. It's much easier. It's much easier to say no than to say. Yes, you say, yes, you're putting yourself on the line you spending money, you're going to be responsible. If it doesn't work out. I we see people fall by the wayside very quickly under those conditions. The pilot model is so rough and horrible because it's like so much pressure on this one thing that down to national. For for. Yeah. No, no. I think that was picked up already. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Cool. Chance Germany, and you can kind of you feel safe doing the first episode because you know, you're going to get to go like, I think I've definitely done pilots that no one will ever see and the feeling is there's so much pressure on them. And like you can feel it as you're making it and like it's like they're rewriting every day. And then by the end, it's like something else. And then everyone's like, it's going to be go doesn't just like everyone's ten with their terrible has very weird terrible kind of pilot exposures. I did a pilot Michael Moore, we did a sitcom together. Wow. It was great. Better days. It starts. It starts. Chris elliott. Oh, wow. Okay. Jim Jim Belushi Shays. It was a political. It was political. It was about to auto workers who are they closed the plant, and they moved the plant to Mexico, and these guys have to figure out what to do and they wind up getting a job like a computer factory where they don't know. What the hell's going on? It was really funny. It really worked. Those two guys were like classic comedy. They love the show tested out of out of. It was just great everything was super going. Well, let's move to us. Hey, start staffing up the show come to York to announce it, and then they found the we've I found that which I never knew at the time GM is the largest advertiser on television as as a result of that. They have the right to look at all the pilots. Right. Could you imagine? I didn't know this that time I was already like producer a TV show for a long. Yeah. They view all the pilots and decide which ones that will it to advertise. And if they say, no, that's the end of the apposite of however should be that is the most messed up way for them to go should be the TV networks should be like, you should be honored that we let you advertise. A a show a show produced in created a written by Michael war. Yeah. They're not. That was it was over business. Konya rust pilots. I did a kind of a black curb your enthusiasm. Round. It's a real somewhere. You know, why it cynic? Yeah. He's one of the coasters. Awesome. But he shows the pilot sometimes like in his standup show hill. He's showing the pilot. Versus it's really cool show. And I never I didn't pick come on. I never would've watched that. Would've never would've watched that. The first thing con-, you sits me was on the black Larry David, and he proceeded to tell me star after story of of stepping in shit. Putting his foot in his mouth having to apologize as all precursor dashing. He was very kind of more humble person at that. If HBO is not willing to bet on cognac. And are they going to? Yeah. We made them a shoestring also. To get a mid I love, how did you? How did you end up? Getting in with Sasha baron Cohen into those movies Sasha baron Cohen, I met through our Emmanuel are Emmanuel's agents. Now, he's like an entrepreneur and some kind of empire builder. What he does. What he does. But at that time, he was agent, and he represented Larry myself, and he represented Sasha Larry, and I will doing curb one of our favorite perks was we'd go to boxing matches. They had all the great boxing matches. If we we would fly Vega. Yeah. First class treatment. We would go to Vegas flight Vegas. Go. Get ringside seats fine. Oh, it was real funding announced names or the Lao? He was really Peter going to reach out. House trying to get at that time was actually there was some great boxing matches. So is really worth going. I don't know if there are that many anymore. I can still are few. But so we would we would do that all the time at one of the boxing matches. We hang out backstage. And are brought Sasha as he was doing Allie g who's doing. Was obsessed with that show. Sure. It was. Is amazing. And I that's where I met him backstage. And we kind of just a chat and talked about how much you like each other's work. And then a couple years later when Bora came up he called me. Wow. That's so do you have that was was that scary doing that kind? Because I know you're made me laugh harder than anything in theater when I saw in the theaters I remember crying, especially when they're like chasing it on the hallway take it so fun cruiser that movie was crews. I quit that movie. Like when I and this is they're not the same level of quality of comedy. But seeing jackass for the frame theater. Can't believe I just like oh my God. This is more than just on E. This is like truly danger that you feel that is because that's how we felt we were shooting. That's what I wanted to know. Was it scary? 'cause you're coming from like sitcoms sort of bubble Kerry like for me coming from Brooklyn where I had to talk myself out of giving killed so many times pass beat so. Times. I was used to talking people into stuff talk my way out. So I loved chess to use some of those skills. You know, do you think he knew that about you going in? Or was it just kind of lucky that you happen to be? I think he appreciated the comic sensibility of the stuff that I had worked. He realized how much I would grab this experience. Yeah. For me. It was like robbing a Bank. You know, we had a little crew we would go into places we didn't belong. We get away with all kinds of crazy stuff. And then get run run away driving in the car. We would be so giving car afterwards. Great. So hoping that the film doesn't blow purple paints. The cops would becoming I loved I loved, you know, dealing with the cops and the confrontations. I said the most exhilarating experience far beyond the movie experience really was that's like it's. I saw things that I would never have seen like Sasha being healed at a mega church. Kinda moments. I mean, I remember watching that. And I was punching the D. There was stuff like that that I was constantly wide eyed by self behind the camera go, I can't believe they're doing. Yeah. Yeah. And you worked on Bruno as well. Right. Bruno one that always. And maybe it was even from the show. But I think it was in the movie the spring breakers like hanging out the RV on the Santa's he's he gets them. So riled up that they're all like your reporting party. He's all right now look at the camera and saying watching gay television. She flip out. He he thing. That was interesting about Bruno was. Borat was like an innocent. And people had a lot of patients more Ryan. So he could get away with a lot of stuff because people were basically giving him. Yes. Lack doubt of being a soon as people saw Bruno. They were like angry. It's a much darker movie because the experience that we have was much darker. He was the victim of violence constantly being jostle slapped kicked salted every place. We went that the heat the heat was we have caught us by surprise. Like, you did not realize such a visceral reaction. And and the movie just let's just isn't exuberance of the borough experienced comes out in that movie, the the fear. That's where I felt more fear just so much anger. And we were in situations like the cage match where you're surrounded by angry people who want their money back or one Justice want to beat the hell out of a gay person, or whatever it was all that was happening. All those. We were we were out in in the woods with these hunters with guns in the dark. You know? And it was it got very tense times. There we were in Berlin dads club. He's getting smacked. And you know, like all we were like out of control a lot of these places. And it was it was much darker experience, and that's reflected in that movie. Did you have like security that was helping anybody to protect you will like Sasha's very obsessed with security, rightfully so. And I wanted him to feel secure because want to do his thing he had to cure. But I was like we went to see a white supremacist in Kansas guy who eventually while. Killing a couple of people on death row now. So we went to see him too too funny bit with him. So he was very nervous about that. And rightfully so. And so we had security and security guys would often be pretended to be boomed guys. Hold the boom house so say. So I would say to him. Okay. Just keep it. He's he would wanna know where he was here's position, and I'm going, okay? The white supremacist is right next to you. Okay. The the security guy is like nine feet away with the boom. Okay. If this guy wants the wheel around and punch you in the face the security guys not gonna be able to stop it. Hopefully, he won't hit you a second. Right. So if he wheels around trust, the hit, you you do what you can because he's not going to get there in time and most often with security they were too far away to really it was an illusion of security to large degree right in the cage match people climbed into the ring throwing chairs. I mean, it was so scary. Yeah. We had to build we did a twice actually because the first is somebody got in the ring almost immediately. It was going to kill the two guys. So we had to build the problem with those movies when something doesn't work you have to leave the city. You can't go cut with different city and to the whole setup all over again. So we had to get into other venue. We had to get another crowd. We had to promote it again. And all that kind of stuff and the second time, we built a scape. Hatch into the ring so Sasha Phil threatened. He could escape through these scape. Patch which in a second fight. He did leaving the other guy there. The camera guy. Everybody else. Out safely now when you when you when you have to strike that and go and set up another are you a Sasha at any moment. Like, let's not do. This are either of you guys. Should we come up with something else? We we I will there's a six hour cut of the movie. That's one thing you should know so much betrayal that didn't get us. And a lot of it. I mean our goal you talking about laughing so hard at the move your goal is to try to make this again, very audacious ambition make the funniest movie ever. Let's see if we can do it. Let's see what happens, you know. And we I think we did pretty well with that half to over shoot for comedy. I think we're very confident in the vision as well. I think today things have changed so much fragmented and be much tougher to figure that out. You know, nail special at the time. It was. It was it was a perfect sort of pocket for that. Also. I think Sasha kind of also killed Jon Rao in that. Like, no one's going to do it as well as him. And he can't even relate with it. He can barely do it any most it's worth noting that what he was doing boring Bruno those characters analogy, but particularly because I worked on boron Bruno those characters the he knew inside out. Also can't be discounted that the success of war at as funny as it is is he created a three dimensional character who was on by the way, he should have won an Oscar my pigeon. He would get up in the morning and come out he was born at and that's it. He talked to you. He talked to you. He whatever he did. He was born at everybody had to believe it. Right. A close. He did it all day long. So cool. It makes so much sense though, that you would do that off camera because like it gets you into that feeling really knowing that I used to have arguments with him. He argues four. He wore underwear. He wore outs ring. He had the finish chute smelled legendarily the neither one of them shower the entire time. And that was on purpose. He didn't show purpose. It's part of the psychological breakdown. If the person will hook you even though you stink you have some control over them. He would take these lachey. Oh men, and he would greet them by kissing them. If they allowed him to kiss them, he knew he has some domain of them half. Nate did not showering is really interesting because it really does make the character more three dimensional like that. You would meet them like he stinks. Like, you're an actor. Well, he's from Kazakhstan, they don't they don't have running water believe that he we we got a hotel room, and he got all excited about the chair in the hotel room. And I had to tell them the he'd never seen a chair before. And they would believe it. Don't have chairs. Show them. How it works weirdly using Zena phobia to your advantage movies about cultural oblivious and the rest of the world. It doesn't have to say reference questions. We should take a quick break. Okay. You've probably heard about Marvel's hit scripted podcast wolverine, the long night Gizmodo called it the X men crime drama podcast. I never knew I wanted keep believing Gizmodo said that now Wolverton his back in a brand new. He's in the podcast, and you can only hear it on Stitcher premium.

That that's how quick those breaks. Almost back. That was I saw that. That's no put the show. Thank you. Larry. Let's talk about what the the Netflix show. That's coming out soon. Or by the time. This airs will be out. Yes. It's cold Charles dangerous world of comedy. And again, it's kind of a culmination of all these things we've been talking about. Working with Sasha or even like, I did a Pringles global Pringles campaign like Uruguay and Thailand, and all this kind of create and directed of foreign languages, not me. But I had a translator really interesting challenge. I loved it. You know? But I've been a lot of I've been to a lot of countries now internationally that are ruled by oppressive regimes, and I found that whatever country I was in a how oppressive the regime was there's always comedy. And I kept on meeting comedians in these weird countries, we're doing comedy like more against LED, more or less illegally. Well, so legally, and sometimes there's a small scene. It's not like very few countries. Have most available comedy scene. Like you have here. This is a fully infrastructure, you know, industry comedy here. But most people are not doing it fulltime in these other places because they can't it's just economic reality. Tha that, you know, but they exist they get up. There. They do stand up if they can they're on social media. What wherever they could do. They feel the need to express themselves and possibly be talking about the government in which case they often get into trouble or using the comedy pull pit as a kind of a healing tool for like a post war environment. Like, I was in Liberia, which is still suffering the trauma of civil war that they had a lot of the comedies about trying to heal the wounds of that civil war, and I found that wherever it was that existent, and I found that when I came home, I was lucky enough to come home. I get rewarded. I would get accolades for my work, but they had to stay and they risked imprisonment and torture and arrest and death, really and literally death at times. And I thought that I'm curious what their lives alike after I leave, you know. And I started googling the craziest places in the world and comedy. Like, Somalia and comedy, and they're always comedians. So I thought this is this the show. This is showed I mostly uniquely qualified to do because I have some credibility in this area. And I thought I'm somebody that can kind of may be bridged that gap a little bit. You know? I mean, you like this is like sort of like doing borat for real in a way. Yeah. Cam not pranking, you're not making. So you are bringing a new viewpoint to other demonstrating to other moment. Very high stakes dangerous places. I'm in Iraq. You know, we're in Iraq day that Mosel fell in Cacak, which is the next town, which is all just Bullard ridden and battered and bombed out to interview an ISIS prisoners interviewed nicest prisoner and Iraq during them but follow Mozell. I was in Mogadishu talked to L shebab defector Mogadishu is probably the scariest in the most dangerous Black Hawk Down. That's down and people die. They're like, it's just a regular thing. Just bomb blast and terrorism. And it's a crazy crazy scary sort of place and communities that sort it's real and comedians get assassinated, and I've met comedians who've been tortured and families killed and you just just incredible stuff. And yet they still do the comedy. So their stakes are different than the American sticks. I mean, I'm getting bitch about getting passed over for a network, multi. Holy shit. I'm never in any physical see. Do we get to see their comedy or? Oh, well, yes, we show quite a bit of their comedy. I want to see what sometimes even in a foreign language. But at least see what they're laughing at how they're dealing like this comedy troupe in Iraq. They're like a sketch troupe to alive show the first one I was there like come on. We're going to lie to a allies show out here at Iran. Never imagine saw families. It's like five thousand people show up to see the show the one show. It's like it's and people bring their kids and everything, and they're not afraid, you know, they're not afraid that used to things changing in in a second because anything can happen. But they they live their lives. And that's the lunar. That's amazing that connects us to them also because you realize if you have a family, you just want your family to be safe. You want them? That's all he had Muslim whatever whoever I met. That's what they really wanted. You know was just to be safe. You know, and and it's not a given in most of the most of the world, you know? And I have question have you. Did you notice any commonalities amongst all these like you've been around a bunch of American comics longtime? Yes, do you notice any commonalities that like globally that comedians have in common, or at least specifically these oppress country comedians? Well, it's interesting. I I looked at saw a lot of different aspects of that question. You know, one thing I thought that was interesting is that we all each culture. Has its own reference points. A lot of our comedy is based on our like these common threads that. We've been talking old TV shows commercials or comedians that we've seen or those movies that we love, and we can kind of reference those I could go you're active just like the real housewives. Everybody knows what you talk. Well, every country has those reference points and they're different than ours. But the structure of the jokes is very similar, you know, they may wind up talking about some Nigerian reference point a corrupt politician. But it's the same sort of structure to the jokes. And what I learned was that almost all modern comedy the foundation for almost all modern comedy is western comedy. So they all everybody around. And that's what those interesting about show. Also, we don't know any of the comedians of the world everybody, I met new Seinfeld. New Dave Chapelle new Larry, David news, do borat and Sasha. They do all those things they are PA. We were in Jordan shooting Bruno. There would be in Amman would be these street sellers on the streets selling bootleg pirated DVD's and every one of them had the same for items. They'd have a bootleg Seinfeld. A bootleg curb a bar at at a copy of mine comp so ever you Wentz? Bad life your company. I realize not that I on not. I'm not a practicing Jew it. I'm an atheist, but I was the only Jew in most of these countries, and that's interest. And in some countries, we would buy little crew, we the only white people, and that's something that people should take advantage of. If you've never had that experience, we take it for granted. We're white country. You know, you don't realize how comfortable you are them. You grew up at a white country really as much as we try not to acknowledge that. But imagine the opposite. And it was interesting to be in that situation being the minority in a culture, and I found and again, very accepting very loving people really really nice and wanted very simple things that that Americans want. Also, that's so. So this I went when does this drop on Netflix fifteenth? There were fifty. Yes. By the time this it's out trail trails out now. Yeah. I just watched the trailer this morning awesome. Thank you how congrats Larry anything else. You wanna plug while? You're here for Seinfeld. If you're listening to a TV podcast about old TV, and you don't watch Seinfeld. Shut this shit. Sure. Trump. Yeah. We're working behind the scenes to make that. Thank you so much for coming. Really great. That was really. Sobhi other show like oh, cool. Great. Great great, very interesting experience to go. These other countries realize that they are very hip to what you've been up to, you know, I'm at least two or three people told me, they learned English from Seinfeld. So I should say. Everyone talks like that. It's really. Try to sell you this joke. You ready to go cool now?

Avoiding Burnout, Inspiring Yourself, and Balancing Satisfaction and Ambition | ASK ME ANYTHING

"You're a man of action you live to the fullest, compress, your fears and boldly charge your own path when life knocks you down you get back up. One more time every time you were not easily deterred beating rugged zillion strong. This is your life. This is we are this you will become at the end of the day. And after all is said and done you can call yourself. A man it's one on lead to be back for another round of asked me to be here, sir. With you have that kind of my ass here at the office saying, oh, I'm going to take off for two days later for some. I don't know man stuff up through San employ stock. Yeah. We've got our legacy event coming up on Thursday of this week so tomorrow, actually, we're getting things started. And I just I just checked a weather. We're supposed to have rain, and maybe even snow this weekend. Which I told the guys I said, you know, I've been in the scouting program for probably about ten years now, and it's miserable in the moment. But that misery is the thing that the boys remember and love most about these adventures that totally and it's almost just to guarantee that some going to go wrong, whether the weather or gear or something we'll ask you. That's that's part of the Lyell right at such as life. Yeah. Yeah. We'll guys if you don't know what we're doing here. This is obviously an ask me anything where Kip an IRA fielding questions from our exclusive brotherhood the iron council, by the way. I've got a great topic next month for the iron council. We're going to be discussing iron John book iron John that brings down the story titled iron, John and the discussion is going to be all around what has been dubbed the wild, man. So should be pretty cool next month. So guys nearsighted yet. It's going to be good. How do I sign up? How do I sign up? What's this called iron council? If. If you don't know what it is. And you want to know more about it and keep you wanna lock in your spot, then head to order men dot com slash iron council. You could be that there. I'm gonna right now. Good good. We need you. All right. So we're fielding questions from the iron council, and then we're also fielding questions from our Facebook group. So I think you are stocked up on questions. I think we've got a backlog at this point now of questions will probably for the next couple of weeks, and some of these we might filter out guy. So it's not really ask me anything. It's like ask me something intelligent. No. It's asking anything. But it doesn't. I never said that I would answer anything copy guy. So if his stupid were does not gonna answer it, you can ask it, you can do it every one we just may not answer. It. Not sure there today. Don't be dumb. That's right. It's John Wayne's quote. What is it? Life is hard. It's harder. When you're stupid total, which is one of my favorite quotes. All right. Let's get into man. What do we got here? All right. So like, you mentioned already iron council guys. I I question. Good old Bubba downs. What is the light event schedule for twenty twenty? And how can we help make it happen that little bit of undertone here? Bubba saying. Hey, let's get going. Yeah. What what's get some FaceTime? Let's get some meet ups going. What does it look like as of right now nothing? And the only reason is because you guys know I talked about this for months now, we got a big move across the country coming up in the next thirty to forty five days. So once we get there will be a little bit more settled in and we can figure out what exactly wanna do. But I envision later this year doing a meet up. It's probably going to be a two day meet up it'll be one day with iron council guys and then another day with or man guys in Maine at my property out. There. Maybe another legacy urgent that's into twenty twenty. I also have a new event that I wanna run. I don't think at told anybody about this called initiation. And this is a very similar vent to the uprising. So it's for men only not there, boys. This time just men only and it's going to be significantly harder. It's a it's an initiation into manhood. So it's it's pretty cool. I've got some good stuff plant that'll probably get into twenty twenty essence fun, not gonna be fun. It's gonna be hell on earth. Will when you're done. You're gonna feel good about it. All right next question. David Jhansi, my daughter twenty twenty years old asks how would you describe a toxic relation to a toxic relationship to a young woman? Who now say so who is asking him. So David's daughter that's twenty years twenty years ago. Yoke is asking. How would you describe a toxic relationship to a young woman? I see. Okay, man. That's that's pretty broad. I I would just say one in which doesn't push you forward. If it's pushing you backwards and not moving where you wanna go than it could potentially be toxic. Right because toxic. Is you think of venom you think of poisonous? And what does that do that disrupts and disorients and potentially even kills so any behavior that is going to push the relationship in a negative position or push it backwards in not propellant enhance it forward. If it's not healthy. Then it's then it's toxic. I I don't know if I can give you specifics, obviously, if there's abuse physical emotional sexual abuse verbal abuse than that, certainly toxic. But I think more nuanced his any behavior all that is pushing the relationship in the wrong in. In the wrong way. Yeah. And look we all bring baggage to the table. Right. So just because you have baggage worth them some things that you may be need to work through doesn't mean. The relationship is toxic. There might be some toxic behavior that needs to be learned and worked through, but it doesn't doesn't necessarily make the relationship toxic. So be careful of just taking one situation or pattern or behavior not passionately pattern. But one behavior and just applying it broadly over the relationship because those things that are learned. In fact, I think that's why relationships are so powerful. I had the opportunity to marry a friend of mine this past weekend. And I told him in his his wife about how powerful relationships are in that that are challenging in a good way that they're challenging you to become a better, man and a woman to become a better woman. So relationships are challenging by their very nature. But it's great. That's. That's kind of the point. We need to be pushing ourselves to improve. Yeah. It's amazing. How much that one aspect of mindfulness and like self reflection is at the very center of the dress in any toxic nece? You know, what I mean like like any relationship that I could have with someone as long as they're open minded enough to realize in have a growth mindset, then you can address things. Right. But if that one thing does not exist. It's like, you're stuck with what you have, you know? Yeah. I I I've really focused on the word intention -ality over the past little while because it's critical that we learn to become more intentional about who you are who we want to be common in the best pattern or the best route to be able to accomplish that. They're good question. Yeah. So Aaron Aaron Coates he says in the spirit of embracing change. What are ways we can teach our young children how to become more resilient? And how to deal with this comfort? My wife, and I have been blessed provide a comfortable low stress lifer. Our children two and four, but I feel like too much of that lifestyle can have a negative impact on them in a long term. I'm not suggesting we make them dive into thirty thirty three degree water, a log ins, but maybe there are some small safe activities. We can have them engage in that will allow them to get out of their comfort zones, or perhaps we need to wait until they are older and engage in such activities. No, I think you kind of answered the question in in the question itself, you you just how do you embrace change? You know, kids are resilient right there. They don't know any different. So if your pattern and the way that you your your financial that your family dynamic works is that it's comfortable it's complacent its path of least resistance, there's no challenge. Then that's what they become accustomed to because that's life. If on the other hand, you are adventurous, and you're taking risks. You're talking about these types of conversations and your encouraging and cheering on in fostering when a child doesn't necessarily succeed, but they try something new. So you want to encourage that behavior. If that's how your by your family dynamic works than the the kids don't know any different. So you need to go on camp outs. You need to go on adventures you need to encourage them to do things. That are scary. Whether that's something as simple as trying a new food at the dinner table, which is something that we do like our kids have to try things when we go out to eat. I try new things like I was in in New Orleans this past weekend, and I'd never had alligators. So I tried that. Because like you're trying new things right? And we encourage that inner kids as well. Because we encourage that on small things like trying new foods and going on adventures and going on a high or trying to get lost in the woods. They don't know any different than that's just what life is. So. Yeah. Introduced that stuff as often as much as you possibly can. Yeah. And I like what you said. In in the sense that it's how you it's your lifestyle that sets the sup. It's not like, okay, let's come up with a game plan to build resilience into our kids now, actually guess what be a little bit more gritty as a family, right? You do stressful things go on hard hikes go on those backpacking trips like in thirty degree water. Mike, that's not that bad. You don't try ever since my kids were little you'll I know fall. We actually go outside in our underwear lay down in the snow. I love it. Why? I have no idea. Why it doesn't matter? Why? It's just something new something a little crazy. You're, you know, something you're maybe not quote unquote supposed to do. It's it's good. It's all good stuff. Yeah. Yeah. Just maybe make your but I love Aaron question though. Because like at the of in fact, I was just talking to someone about this last week and how it's funny when I look at my life. It's you know, as I was raised on dairy farm in central Utah in in kind of a more than. A agreed lifestyle right compared to standards nowadays. And my dad taught me the importance of hard work, and and I found value in hard work like I found purpose and direction, and and you know, the meaning in hard work. Yeah. And it's ironic is as you get older, you think okay, why pay the price for those things? And so now, I'm gonna live comfortable life, a more comfortable life, and I'm not gonna work as hard, and I'm not going to do these things work looks different. And and those kind of things, but and that the cost of that is what our children have in immediate gratifications and everything that they do but Yali link to work himself star. They wanna no no, go ahead. No. I was just gonna say do you really think somebody who grows up though, like like hard work like that is actually going to take it easy? I don't see that being the case. Well, I think most I think some people do right? They put their time in. Yeah. And I think we get comfortable as we get. Older and think, hey, we're we're gonna live more comfortable lives at the detriment of our children. And I think it doesn't benefit them like in the grand scheme of things in this may sound really crazy and harsh for some people. But if you really want the best for your kids is probably move out of the city and get on a farm and put in a work. Yeah. Like, that's probably the best for your kids. Now, it's not as enjoyable for you, but but that's the best case scenario, but we're unwilling to do that right because we don't want. We don't want to go through that hard work anymore or that type of work anymore. At least not me anyway. So we have to be very creative to create that environment that allows them to learn grit and resilience. Yeah. In my opinion. Yeah. No for sure you have to create that. Absolutely. All right. Got on so box there. Sorry. Joel gilbert. How do you set set as the base level of fitness for yourself? And what do you do to achieve that fitness level? I don't have a base level of fitness because. Base level is. I mean, there's foundational principles, right? Yeah. He suggested just like a bare minimum of what you do like established him what a bare minimum. From a fitness perspective. I just work out every single day. That's it like guys we don't need to complicate everything just work out just going to the gym for an hour everyday. That's it. And the cool thing about that is when you get proficient enough in a certain weight, let's say then increase your weight. Does there's nothing else to it. Yeah. If you feel like you're you've plateaued or you feel like. You know, you got this. Then do something that's harder. You know, running for example. I don't I don't particularly enjoy running. But I run three to four times a week outside of my workouts. I still work out every day and I run three to four times a week. Why? Because I know I can and then no it can push myself further, and I have a desire to do that. But we don't have to. We don't have to complicate it. I think we do that too often. We just we complicate everything. It's like, no, just go workout everyday. You'll be fine. Yeah. I don't know. I'd is he looking for something else. You think? No. I think maybe I I'm assuming maybe what he means by base-level fitnesses is your alternate goal is. Maybe they're integral. Yeah. For you. It's just hey, keep grinding keep right cutting keep working out keep improving. Yeah. There's there's no ultimate goal with anything. You know? Like, I have no ultimate goal. Like once. I hit this all I'm good. Check that off the list. No. Yeah. There's not a thing. I can think about that. That would be the case. Yeah. And if it is what would happen would happen. If you reach your alternate fitness goal. And you're like, all right. Got it done. Then what would happen? Four months later. I lose. What you did? Right. Heavy if you weren't constantly improving congenial doing it and pushing yourself in your digressing, right? Yeah. Yeah. I mean, it's. Yeah. This one isn't a complicated thing to me. It's like there. No baseline. There's no base level. You just work out every day when you feel like you you're strong enough. Then you put more weight on Iran, a little faster, you train a little harder. You mix things up. You do something. Maybe you're familiar with you, just go just go. That's it. Just go to just be happy Gilbert that you got rining give your response other than the answer battle plan. So that's right. Good. That is true. He will battle plans not going to do any cutting us. Make sure you show up at the gym maybe de well that evens not gonna do anything. I know guys that go to the gym and looks like based on Instagram all they do is click picture themselves in the mirror to the hell. Are you doing like go in that squat rack and do some squats stop taking pictures yourself? So this is that mentality of like showing up is half the battle showing up shit. So what you got there? Okay. Well, and like if I went to a Spartan race in like, hey, guys. I'm I'm here at the starting line is a half the battle. No the battle hasn't even begun yet. Like, it's showing up is not enough. Like you've got to do it. That is all right. Tom king. Well, how satisfied are you with the success? You've achieved so far and order, man. And how do you balance ambition versus contentment, the these are these are really interesting. This question. I like this question, and it's really always hard for me to define like, I don't know what the differences are. Or what distinction I should make between contentment which used and satisfaction which used and complacency which has a negative connotation ambition. I like these it's hard to define for me. I'm never satisfied. I'm I'm glad that we've accomplished what we've accomplished with order of man. But I'm certainly not satisfied with it. Because if I was satisfied with it, then I would just stop. That's kind of the point. We talked about in the last question. Right. Yeah. So I'm happy. I'm glad I'm fulfilled. I like what we've accomplished. And when I have some sort of benchmark, for example, ten million downloads on the podcast when I hit that benchmark. I was glad for like, thirty seconds. And then I'm like, okay, we'll know Verdy accomplish. I that. So now, what can I do to push the needle even further to give myself that much more of an advantage? And. Really crate what it is that I want to create my life. So there is no. There's no sense of arrival. There's no sense of satisfaction for very long. And it's always about what's next. What's next? What's next? Yeah. I like that. Dan delay Rio. I'm an assistant coach for my daughter's lacrosse team. She's nine to ten years nine to ten years old most girls, this age don't have that killer instinct that boys their age do when it comes to sports competitions any suggestions for getting these girls to be more aggressive during competition. I like that. I don't know of boys are even quite there yet is right now, I've got I've got fifth grade. Yeah. Yeah. I've got my my son's eleven my oldest son is eleven and he doesn't really have the fire. He's had the fire over the past. I would say year or two maybe. But it says it's just turned on recently. So it's actually really hard. And then you have varying personalities, right? Some people. Whether it's our girls are just they just get fired up. That's what they do and others others don't. So what I think you need to do is you need to look at each player individually and ask yourself why is this individual here? Why are they here because if you can figure out why person on your team, whether it's said nine year old or a thirty year old his on a team participating in an activity, then you can play to the reason that they're there, and because that the strongly identified why then you can train and coach them in a way that leads them to their alternate objective for being there. So I know it sounds like it might be too advanced for nine and a ten year old. But I don't think it is. I think everybody is out there for a reason. And if you can find out through asking questions, what that reason is and then help move them toward that reason, you're going to see something light up. Maybe that didn't light up before. It's it is a challenge when because you have personalities and. These kids are at home, and their parents are talking with them, of course. And that's a good thing. But they may have a different perspective about the way they compete, and so you're a very small part of their life right now. And especially at that age, it's not real competitive either can be John a competitive league. But a lot of times it might just be a city league. And people are just throwing their kids in there. Because I think that's what they're supposed to do. And then you've got these kids who don't really wanna be there. Don't know how to work in their parents aren't supporting them at home. You gotta find a way to like these kids up through understanding them individually. And I think you'll be able to serve them a little bit better. Ryan, what are your thoughts on on kind of creating competition within the team itself? Oh leisure creating drills for their so they're competitive with their teammates. Not just as real as scientists. Yeah. Drills. Look, I mean you hear that and ignore wants to do drills. But if you're competing so one of the things that I do every year with baseball is on the very first practice, and then we do it a couple times throughout the year. But on the very first practice what I have our kids his line them up on home plate in a single file line. And then I have them go one at a time all the way around the bases. Because I keep track of the of the time to see which kid runs the fastest. And then what I do is. I have them. So I have them all go. And then I have them go a second time. And I say who thinks they're the fastest one on the field. And I usually have about three to five kids and the other kids know, they're not as fast. I'm like we're going to have the guys who think they're the fastest go again. And then what I need you to do the guys who don't think that are the fast. I want you to pick pick your pony. Meaning you tell me who you think's going to be the fastest. And so I have the kids who aren't running go with who they think is the fastest. And then the kids run around and whoever's the fastest and the person who or the players that picked whoever is the fastest. They don't have any sort of Burke's or anything like that everybody else has to Burke's. Then what I tell him as I say, okay? On the third one. Then I'm going to run the bases. And if I beat all of you guys, then you'll me burpee if you if even just one of you can beat me, then I'll do Burke's. So now, they're competing against each other. They're picking they're playing for each other. They're trying to beat me. Like all of this little competition is really really healthy the other things that you can do along the same lines as reward players for good performance. I remember when I was playing competitive sports when I was young. I would see guys get you know, defensive player in the week of in football or offense a player of the week or special teams or whatever was. And I was like man I want that like I want to be acknowledged for that. And so I played harder and harder and harder. This is the demise of competition in y participation trophies. Or actually a detriment to kids because they don't encourage that. I understand why is because you don't want certain kids to feel left out. But the reality is that's going to happen. Regardless of what you do. Whether you do participation trophies or not because some kids just aren't good. That's just the nature of life. They're not good at that particular skill but rewarding good behavior encourages the ones who are doing good to continue to do it. And the ones who have aspirational goals to step up in a new way, they may be wouldn't have had that recognition up and available. But again that comes back to intentions to the reason why and also motives is not bad to be driven by motivation or motivated by recognition. There's not a bad thing. If you know, that's what it is. Then recognize a kid and they'll perform better. Yeah. Skit stuff. Nick burger what approach have you taken or planning on taking regarding educating your kids about drugs and alcohol. How does your personal past experience religious, beliefs and social views factory approach in what age does it start thinks bearded leader and trustee side kit side, that's the nickname. I haven't heard yet, man. I liked that one. That's my side Kip. I liked that a lot Jim eyesight Kip. Sticking slash in. What was the other? I know you do. I'm not going to be able to enter I'm not going to be able to answer this question of holy cow. What was the question manage drugs and alcohol, and I'll come to this. Yeah. You just talk about it. I mean, you just do so many parents are afraid to talk about drugs and alcohol or pornography. You're the birds, and the bees or money or politics or religion or any number of things that are sensitive and uncomfortable, frankly to talk about, but the more that you talk about it. The better you're going to get at it. And the more you're going to be able to equip your kids with what they need. So my conversation start early. You know, if I see somebody smoking a cigarette, for example, in my kids are there. I'm going to ask them. Hey, what do you think about that? They're like, do you think that's like positive behavior? Do you think that's something you should or shouldn't do, and they know they're like I shouldn't do that. Well, why? And then we talk about it. Well, because it could hurt your health or it smells bad. I mean, they come up with all the reasons that woman normally think of so that's right now that said is that make that person a bad individual? In if they say, yes, then I have to coach that. No that doesn't make them a bad person. It just means that maybe they're not making a decision that's in their best interest. So we talk about these things we constantly have these conversations. And that's the answer the answer for law just to talk just to converse just to have difficult discussions the more. You do that. Again, the more. You're acquitting your kids with the tools, they need in the frameworks in the references in the ideas and. Perspectives. They need to be able to make their own decisions. We talk about tattoos, for example. I don't have any tattoos. Do you have to know? I talk with my kids. I'm like, what do you think about tattoos? I don't mind him. Personally. Choose not to get a tattoo on my kids. Like me. I don't think I want one. Okay. Well, why? Well because x y and z and like, well, what do you think about people that have them? And they're like, well, I don't know. I'm like, no get it doesn't make them bad person. So we're having these conversations about things that are personal decisions that somebody can choose and how it doesn't make them necessarily a bad person. Just means that that's not a decision that. I'm that. I'm interested in. Yeah. I hope that answers the question. I it's maybe I oversimplified it. But but it truly is having conversations with your kids. And also, here's another one never to be too busy to have a conversation with your child if they initiate, right? So if your child comes to you and says, hey, dad, can I talk with you about something? Oh, I try to be very careful saying, oh, you know, too busy. I've got this business thing. Let me take care of this. I I want to be very open and receptive to what they're talking about. And not lecture. I'm also very cautious of not lecturing. Which is why ask my kids a lot of questions because I want them to engage in the conversation think for themselves, and if it's dad just pointing my finger and lecturing about what they shouldn't shouldn't do. I can see them rolling their eyes and Saint all here goes dad again, right? I struggle with that. I we all do because we know especially when it comes a little child, we know what's in their best interest. And so it's easy to just lecture talk down to rather than opening up the dialogue. Yeah. I if I had a summarize what you said Ryan, I'd say that you're you're approaches continuous ongoing constant conversation. It's not like lemme create this plan. Right. And an approach to talk to my kids about drug and alcohol. It's like you look for opportunities on a regular basis to ask them questions generate thought you're gonna mean provide some guidance young and just constantly doing that on a regular basis. Yes. I do the same thing with money. That's big taboo and a lot of people's lives. And so my son, my oldest in particular is more interested in it because he sees me interacting with money and were he's managing helping manage the store and shipping orders and things like that. So he'll ask me, you know, how much did you pay for your truck? And I'll tell them exactly how much I paid. Well, how much do you? I tell him, you know, I don't owe anything because I paid it off when we drive by the loan the loan sharks. Or whatever you call him the loan companies on the side of the road. It's like, hey, be careful of that. And he's like why said if you give that person if you need. One hundred dollars. They'll give you one hundred dollars. But then you have to pay them back one hundred twenty five he's like what stupid like exactly it is. So just save your own money. And then you don't have to pay a hundred twenty five dollars for something that should just be one hundred. He's like, oh, yeah. I make sense when he asked about us moving to Maine. He's like, I don't think you should borrow money to buy the house. I said, okay. Well, let's talk about that talk about why. Or why shouldn't or why should we have these discussions because these are the discussions that matter not what was their favourite show of Papa troll or whatever kids watch. I don't know. Pop the trill. All right. Don't pretend like you. Don't know what I'm talking about Kim. I totally know pop patrol is dude, I have two little girls, I'm saying Barbie Barbie dream house, baby. Dude. It is actually funny cartoon, I enjoy little Barbie dream house. You I'm going to cut. Do you want me to cut that segment out before you could? All right Dominic. Our fellow jujitsu guy from origin main what tactics strategies do you guys implement to avoid burn out? I keep finding myself in this cycle of sprint hard and crash that I'm forced to rest that. I'm sprinting again, then crash rest repeat. I don't mind sprinting it just too intense for the long term and way too often thinks brothers. Yeah. That's that's something. That's very common. I think in a lot of guys because we are hard-charging hard-driving we want to accomplish a lot. And so yes, like, I said something something I think is his very common. I think Dominic you recognize what's happening, which is you're pushing too hard in short bursts. So I would recommend that maybe you do consider scaling back. Whether that's at the gym, or did, you jitsu or at work or whatever? And realized that slow and steady wins the race. Right. If you can be consistent in day in and day out over a long and sustained period of time. You will inevitably I believe get further than somebody who's just gonna sprint. Stop sprint stops sprint spot. Stop. So for me, it's about doing the things that I know need to get done. But it's about creating some space margin in my life like yesterday afternoon, for example. I went I ran a five K yesterday. Just on my own is a trail run. What else did I shot my bo- like I gave myself time throughout my quote, unquote, working day where I can engage activities that are different enough that it it rejuvenates me. But still is moving the needle like running is still good for me dry, but it's different enough than answering emails shooting. My Bo is still good for me. But it's different than being the gym, for example. So you can still be progressing. But maybe you just mix it up and there, so you're not so burn out on on one task or one item that one series tasks you need to complete. Yeah. That's tough. And I think that that. That paring back right from the sprint looks differently for everybody. Right. Like, I've I've gone like jujitsu is one of my things of that. I consider like my reset right might rest. But then when I'm training, really hard. And I'm training allot. It now becomes the sprint. Right. And now, it's like, okay. Wait, I'm not getting the rest. Now. It's reading a book right now. It's going for a walk with the family in the neighborhood. Now, it's kind of something else. And so I think we have the ability to almost anything in turn that into the hard sprint. If we're not careful. And so I think try to find what that activity is for you is is kind of key is as part of a void in that burnout process. So and I think this is a personality trait in a lot of guys too. I tend to become obsessed with activities, and then I burn out because I'm like, okay. Well, let's fill fill the Cup or did whatever I needed to like. Well, don't try not to obsess over it. If you're going to be. And it's going to burn you out then recognize that acknowledge it and then create a plan. So you don't get obsessed necessarily, but it's a healthy. It's a healthy practice like going to the gym something that I think everybody would probably consider a good thing. I know guys that just take it to the extreme. And they're obsessed and it early Nate's other aspects of their lives. So it's like it's no longer healthy practice. It's actually unhealthy at that point. Yeah. So recognized you kind of would it. Yeah. Not only ruined ebbs. You ruined yourself. You know, you you get obsessed about it. You you can't focus on anything else you neglect here other obligations and responsibilities. You know, we talk about this when it comes to drugs. You know, that's that's an easy thing. But how many of us do that with with our hobbies, you know, like, for example, hunting like how many guys do I know hunters that I know who I think are good men, but they're hunting so much that they're alienating their their wife. It's like well. You got to find the healthy boundary for that stuff? Otherwise, it's just going to consume you in. It's not gonna help you. Yeah. Yeah. And there's so much to be considered of why you're obsessed with it. Right. Yeah. Getting away from something. Are you you feel inadequate and other aspects of your life for sure. Yeah. Comparing yourself to other people. So you're obsessed with it. Because you know, you bet assuring yourself and you want to be better in that area. Yeah. I mean, there's so much there after Burgess coats, sir, from your Instagram post with the little man and his birthday. So happy birthday little man. You mentioned him testing you in ways like never before. How'd you stay calm? Not get angry and take it out on your son while I recognize it number one. Right. That's that's the most important thing that you recognize and I recognize it in a good way. It's very easy for us to look at kids who are stubborn, and he is man, I even put in that post like he's a rule breaker. Right. He'll find the rules and he'll break him. He'll he'll get it in his. Cici mile and is Merck and his eyes. Yeah. Man. That's just that's just who he is. And it's very easy for us to say. Well, I wanna break him of that. It's like, well, if you break him of that what else are you breaking them off? Be cautious because he can't throw the baby out with the bathwater. Yup. So number one recognize that what you might see as frustrating may actually not be a bad thing if it's not used correctly. If the virtues are the abilities or skills or personalities and healthy. Okay. Will you gotta you gotta help harness that. And that's exactly what our job is fathers as harness it. So is being stubborn a bad thing. It can be. But in a way, it also can be a very good thing can looking at the world a little differently. Be a bad thing bull. Can if you're using it for things that are immoral illegal or unethical, or it can be something that maybe opens the world up to a new perspective that hadn't been considered before. So when I'm interacting with my youngest son in particular because he's probably the biggest handful that we have. I don't look I try not to look at those things as negatives. And I try to look at them as positive things. So if he's misbehaving I think, well, how can I turn this into a positive? Maybe he just needs to go outside and just roll around in the dirt or jump on the trampoline or burned some of that energy out. I think we have a very very serious problem in society with overmedicating our boys because they can't sit still do they need medication or the interesting to go run. Do they need to sit in focus in a classroom the way, quote, unquote, they should or they need some exponential learning. And I think if we take the perspective of why is this actually good thing? Why is this not bad? And how can I harness this skill that most people are this trait that most people would look as bad and teach my child how to harness it in a way that's going to be effective for my kid. Then I think we're gonna have a lot more success. And I certainly think we're going to be more patient as we're trying to deal with the challenges of raising a. Hard child. So I I had to look this quote because I've I've heard this quote before and I really like it says strong willed children become adults who changed the world as long as we can hang on for the ride in resist the temptation to tame the spirit out of them. I like that. I like the resist the temptation to tame the spirit. I would say that. I one thing. I don't agree with that quotas. Hang on for the ride. I appreciate the sentiment. But you're not there to hang on your there to guide. Exactly. Yeah. I totally agree. But but the key is is like that too. What your point earlier is that tough spirit is very powerful. Right. It's it's about teaching than the harness hid. Right. Although it's it makes perte difficult. Right. But it's also very powerful thing. I mean, we talk about that and violence quite a bit, right? Is harnessed the violence. Right. Don't don't demonize don't make it bad. Don't try to get rid of it like teach them how to use it. That's exactly right. That's exactly right. Because there's a time in a place where violence is necessary. And if you don't teach your child how to harness it, then they're gonna use it destructively. I look at my boys. For example, I've got three boys in little girl. I look at my three boys, and I tell them like guys don't be destructive use the same skills in the strength in the curiosity to be constructive. So my second, for example, he loves the give you an example, we we bought him a car for his birthday like a little model car for his birthday was going to say Yata car, but a model like a little model car and big metal car. Like, it was cool. You know, and and within a week he had thrown it against the wall and smashed to pieces, and I'm like. Why did you do that? Then he's like, oh, I I thought he's been destructive. He's like, oh, I three against the wall. So it come part. So I could see how all the pieces were moving like, oh like he wasn't trying to be destructive. He's trying to be constructive. So what can I do to harness that? Well, maybe I can just get a model kit. So he can actually put it together. So so instead of destroying things he can actually get these little pieces and gloom together and put them together. So that's what we did. So we really have to understand why they're behaving the way they are. And then again, it's our job not to hang on to harness it in a way that's going to serve him and other people that ill at some point having obligation to serve. Yeah. When dance question earlier about his daughter and lacrosse and being competitive in aggressive part of that might be. I mean, our kids have been conditioned by by fifth grade. They've been told not to be aggressive, right? Don't be competitive. Right. And so a little bit of that. You know, I'm not saying this is a case. But part of maybe his team not being aggressive is the fact that they haven't been guided to use there. Russian either. Right, right. I mean, I even tell kids in our on our baseball team. Like you get mad. It's okay. I told my son yesterday because you startled he's getting tired. And so we started he's pitches. So he's starting to lob the balls and a little bit of like, hey, man. Get pissed. Get mad us that use that fires fuel and he turned it on. And he pitched a great game yesterday. We won the game. And all was well, but yeah, it's okay to teach them to push a little harder into us. What may be a lot of society would dub as toxic or? Some somehow some some trait. They shouldn't be harnessing not sharia totally is he catching and pitching then. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. Yeah. He's he. I didn't know that. He'd be a great. He's pretty good little pitchy. Super coach of soup or coach -able. I mean, he's my coat most coach -able kid. He's most my most agreeable. I should say. And so when you ask him to do somethings like, oh, okay. Okay. I'll do that. And so he's not like raw athleticism is not necessarily there. But because of his coach ability he actually he is actually a good little ballplayer. Yeah. Well, it's funny. I mean, if you're a decent ball player by default. You'll be pitching, right? It's because well, especially. Yeah. That league is like any kid that can throw halfway decent right on that a little bit. But and then to come to come back to harnessing is. So he's wanted to pitch and I just bought a book on Amazon like the complete guide to pitching. That's my job. My job is to take what he wants to do. And then figure out ways to harness it and make them better. So I invested a lot in my kids to help them. Improve a skill set that they're interested in. So I by ten dollar book or what? Ever was. And I I read it myself and tab little sections and a highlight it, and then I have him read sections. And then we go out, and we drill we train. That's my job. My job is to harness. What he wants to do in teach him. How to be the best at what he's doing? And her my daughter as well, not just my my sons, go all right? Gabe grillo. Mirroring, errands question. How do you help inspire? Our kids. I have teenagers to impress embrace pain discomfort hard work and the hard work that it takes to make positive change or even want positive change in growth. I really am seeking this question about myself. But I look better if I asked for my kids. Well, let's address the real question. Then instead of a fake one. You've got to find something that inspires you. Right. You don't have to be motivated inspired the same way. I am like there's no rule that says you need to be inspired by hunting. Or if you or fear inspired by what Kipp does with jujitsu. It's like there's no rule that says that's what a man is inspired by or even what a man does. So find something that works for you, something that you're excited about something that you're passionate about and engaged with because then I think it's less of an uphill battle. But if you're trying to follow around what I'm doing or Kip or any number of people that you could be following. I'm supposed to do it like that like always use the example of Jaakko so Jaakko gets up at four thirty and all of the guys think that because he gets up at four thirty in post a picture of his watch that they have to. I don't I don't think. That's right. I think if you get up at four thirty because that works for your schedule, and that's what inspires you. Then then get after it as Jaakko would say, but if you wake up at six thirty because that's what works for your dynamic. And then you go do the things that you feel are. Good for you and uplifting and make you stronger in all capacities of life than than do that. We we gotta be very very careful of of comparing ourselves to other individuals and thinking because they do it a certain way that that's the way that we're supposed to do it. And then what it leads to is. I should do this. I should really do this. And then you never do it. And then that leads to guilt and resentment and frustration which leads to feelings of inadequacy and ultimately lower performance, which perpetuates the cycle. So find something that you're inspired by if you don't like running, and you're never gonna be runner than nobody's saying you have to run a marathon. Maybe jitsu would be better for you. If you're not into firearms training, and you don't like guns. Okay. Well, then go shoot a bow or something else. Like or don't shoot at all. Like, nobody's saying you have to do this stuff. I'm like the greatest one of the one of the greatest challenges. I have is when I share things. People think that because I'm sharing it that. I'm saying that this is what a man does know there are some of those things certainly I'm just sharing what's working for me. And if it works for you to great something else works for you. Great. The find something that inspires you that you're excited about and pursue that and be less concerned about what I'm doing. Or what keeps doing or what Andy priscilla's doing or Jaakko Willink or Goggin 's or any number of people, do you and push his heart as you can with that thing. Cool. Joshua Benton from Facebook. What is your best advice for young, man? Trying to find his place in this world for a young, man. I would say try everything like your job. I don't know. I don't know how young is young. But when you're a young man, I think of a young man probably between like if I were to categorize that. I'd say between maybe like fifteen to twenty five I would say is a young man what what should a young man in that age bracket? Do he should be consuming as much as he possibly can by way of experiences. If something sounds fascinating do it. That sounds intriguing. Do it go out there? Learn experienced go on trips travel the world take take a class that maybe you normally wouldn't take pick up new hobby by guitar by a bow go hunting like do as much as you possibly can. Because what you wanna do is you want to just be like cramming stimulus into your into your being, and then you can start whittling down from there. Okay. I have all the stimulus. Now. What is interesting to me? What do I wanna pursue a little bit deeper? 'cause I think once you start getting to like thirty five to forty five you you graduate from apprentice to now, you're more of a journeyman. Maybe if we're gonna use that analogy. So now, you're proficient in something. And you're starting to whittle away what you're good at in pursue one track. That's probably I would say twenty five to maybe forty five ish. And then I think at forty five you you become somewhat of a master at that thing. And then you have an obligation to turn around and then than now, you're you're the you're the coach or the teacher, you're the mentor. So now you're turning around, and you're helping these other young men get all the stimulus and then find something that's intriguing to them, and then journeymen, and then they become the mentor. This is the cycle of life. So if you're a young man, you're stage is apprentice, I'm learning. My job is to learn. So I go out there. And learn everything I can I'm applying a lot of different things. And then eventually start graduating in changing into this journeyman, which is I really like this. I'm going to walk this route. You just maybe feel better about being in my forties. What do you mean? Well, 'cause I'm I'm on the master. That's why while you're not a master just because you're forty and let me clear all other. Okay. So this is not an age thing. It's about the time. You should start getting very very proficient into something by now, you should actually put it some actually you should feel worse. You have five years you'd be once you hit forty five then you just move on to that next stage. And if you've got nothing to share you're going to be worthless. Having around to get my shit together. All right. Ian swore. I would like to start my own business. But my experience and skills are in healthcare, and therefore not very translatable. I'm to stop you Kip right here. I just go get new skills. Well, I actually disagree with him. He's saying that his experience in healthcare doesn't allow him to be translatable to building his own business. Are you kidding? That's an amazing industry. I agree. I agree. I think you're right. I think both of us. I think is translatable. And if you feel like you need a new skill get a new skill like, nobody's the barrier to the learning something is lower than it's ever been. There's no gatekeeper. There's very little cost and learning something there's a course there's a conference there's a YouTube channel, there's a podcast. There's a book on whatever you feel like you need to learn like, just go learn it, stop the I was gonna stop you. When you said, but because that's don't don't do that. That's an excuse. We talked about this. I think a couple of months ago when I say. The difference between an excuse. And a reason a reason is legitimate. Like, hey, I don't know how to manage my books. Okay. Well, that's a reason. So I has a solution that you got to find a solution for right, but excuses like I don't know how to manage my book. So I guess it can't be entrepreneur. That sounds silly. It sounds stupid. And yet so many of us do that. Stop it knock it off with the excuses identify some reasons, I think you should do that. You don't want to go into something blind or ignorant. That's not wise, but figure out what the reasons are. Okay. Well, I don't know how to manage my books. I don't know how taxes work. I don't know. How to incorporate? All right, good. Learn it that simple. That's easy school learning and apply. It and to your point Kip. I think a lot of it probably is translatable for sure. Yeah. Well, let's be Frank. Right. You you have guess what you need to start to a good business idea. Often you need you need to find a gap megapolis process a gap. A problem. In which you could provide a solution right healthcare industry. It's not going anywhere that interested around. What gaps exists work appointed you going to be aware that the solutions Moore, you know, what where there needs to be a solution implemented, you know, what the gaps arguing with the problems are figured out. And guess what? You don't have to even be a health care professional address some of those problems. Some those problems might be hardware. They might be software. They might be around process or something else. So I think personally there's gaps in everything and a lot of entrepreneurs some of them that had the best success is because they were tied to some industry that allowed them to see issues and gaps in in a process where they could address it. Right. And find Andrew suggested solution. Yeah. I think this is the premise behind Malcolm. Glad wells ten thousand hours, and I can't remember who he talks about whether it's jobs or. A Bill Gates were they were they had access to computers before they really became mainstream. And so they were able to put in so many hours because they were in this program at college before they even became mainstream and because they had access to that. And they were in that field will then you have two of the wealthiest men that have ever existed right because they had access to it in their environment. And then they used it, and they got proficient with it. And then used it to create something entirely new and something entirely different that we haven't ever seen before I'll give you another example on a smaller scale in my own personal life. When I was a financial planner. This was probably. Tutu maybe two years before I started order of man. I started thinking about how I could speed up the what you would call a sales process so taking somebody from prospect to sitting down with me to the first time to becoming a client to investing to etc, etc. Right. The place where it got bottlenecked was moving them from prospect to client, and I'd have to sit down with these individuals for a lot for a long amount of time in really explain what it is. I was doing why it was important why they needed to worry about it. Why was a concern of theirs, and I really had to sell these individuals on why I should be that adviser. And I thought man this is like does not a great use of my time. So what I started doing it? And I don't even know how how I had the idea but said, well, what if I could just record this presentation, and I could just give it to a prospect, and they could listen to it. And if they were intrigued than we would. Set up an appointment that would speed up the process for me. And it would be a lot more cost effective. So I recorded this. It must have been twenty five minute presentation about what I do. And why they should hire me. And then I went to Staples or wherever and I bought blank CDs. And I bought the CD covers and I had got some professional pictures done had a designer design a CD cover printed them off right there on labels, like, I remember sticking labels on the CDs themselves, and I would give them to prospects. And I'd say when you're done with this. Will you just hand it to somebody else? I bought a cheap, you know, like a ninety dollars microphone, and that's what I did. And it started working people were coming in. They're like, oh, we really like your philosophy. We listen to your CD. My neighbor gave it to me. And we wanna work with you like, whoa. This actually works. Like what else can I do? So then I started thinking about podcasting because I was listening to a lot of podcast at the time. And I thought well, I'll just I'll do a podcast. And so I started a podcast on financial. Planning and I use that same hundred dollar microphone just launched it. It was called wealth anatomy, was geared towards helping medical professionals with their financial services. Well, long story short those two little seemingly insignificant experiments turned into what you guys are listening right now. And I had I never recorded that twenty minute little introductory video or as putting it on, CDs and sticking labels on there and handing it out. I never would be doing this podcast right now. So you might see a video of you talking. It's just audio. It's audio only. Yeah. So Anna's going to say we need new put that online. No. We don't need to put that on my I I don't even know if I have it probably somewhere. Anyways, the point I'm making is that there's probably something you're doing right now that if you continue to pursue would translate very well into something else. But you just have to put in your house. So true. So true Seth Mathers five most important take. Aways. You've learned that someone else could apply in creating their own movement. Like, you have the order of man. Let me think on the fly here number one consistency. You gotta be very very consistent. I see guys to dominance question earlier that Burnell they get hyped up and excited about something. So they do it for a month or two and they're like, oh, I'm not seeing the results while yet you just hadn't given enough time. So number one is consistency number twos. You gotta learn to take a hardline stance. If you can't take a hardline stance on something. If you can't stand for something, then you'll never be able to create a movement because you'll water down your message. Okay. So hardline stance. Meaning just have a unmovable opinion about something. Like, yes. Way more. If you know, that's that that could be one, and I wouldn't say unmovable because that that could be dangerous because you don't you you want to you want to expand your your capacity for new thinking, right? So you don't wanna be immovable necessarily? But a hardline stance might be. So for example, order man is I believe that men are protectors providers and providers like it's going to be very very. Difficult to convince me otherwise. Yeah. I believe that biologically and socially. We're designed to be that way and to operate that way. And my job is to help men. Step more fully into that role. That's my hardline stance. Another hardline stance is that it's called order of men not ordered women not order of whoever wants to show up and do this. It's order of men. And so of women say, we'll can I join the answer's no not because I want to be exclusionary. But because this is from it men. That's who it's for another hardline stance that I have that a lot of people don't like, and they get after me about is that women who want to be men are not men. So we hear this like transgender, man. Let's that's not a man. That's a woman who has a desire to be a man. And if that's their prerogative great. That's fine. That doesn't make make me a transphobic, or I'm afraid of it or I don't understand. No. It just means that I don't think they're men. I think biologically you have to be a man, that's the prerequisite for being a man. So I have certain things that I'm willing to say and willing to share some of them uncomfortable, some of them people don't like, but because I'm willing to take that stand that I'm very appealing to those who actually believe lot like me, and especially especially in a society that waffles around so much can't make a stand has no convictions. They'll say one thing and do something else entirely different. And and something that is at odds with what they just said twenty four hours earlier, it's very very disingenuous in it's very unattractive. It's disgusting. In fact, that's why politics is so bad. Would you would you add being very specific as part of that hardline stance specific Laurie identify? Yeah. You've identified what you're focused on. Yeah. And that's that would be another bad way. You by the way. Yeah. So that would be number three is is being specific having a niche, right? If you say that you're gonna save everybody in. Serve everybody by doing everything than actually you're going to serve nobody because you're doing nothing. So if you really want to help individuals than help, a select group of individuals, people are afraid to do this because they don't want to narrow it down so much that they would LaWare their potential audience guys. They're seven and a half billion people on the planet. All you need is a thousand. You did a thousand of those seven and a half billion that believe in what you believe they think like you do they're looking for the flag bearer of of whatever it is you stand for and if you can be that individual you're set you are set. Now, we we have reached that thousand Mark why will continue to go further, and I'm not talking about just the thousand people listen to your podcast now, I'm talking about a thousand people who will engage with you in a deep and meaningful and significant way. They'll they'll share your stuff they'll put it out in there in the world, if you have an event or a new hat, or whatever they're gonna buy it. That's what I'm talking about talking about those who've extremely vested in what you're doing. So what do we got? We got consistency. We got hardline stance. We got niche. You have the next one. Is you have to learn to be a great communicator? If you can't be a great communicator. You can't do what I'm doing. That's one of the requirements. That's like the ticket for entry. And I'm not always the best commune. Cater. I certainly haven't always been the best communicator. But I'm learning and I'm intentional about how much I'm improving my capacity for communicating a message, very very clearly articulating clearly tapping into people's both reasoning and logic and emotion and the better, I get at communication the stronger this movement gross. That's number four in the number five is understand that you in this kinda ties into line with a communication as well. Is that you are a marketer. I a marketer. I so I don't talk about this whole lot. But because this gentleman's asking this question, I want to is that I I am I consider myself, a marketer, and I know a lot of people like on on say that because that's a bad word has a negative connotation fine. Whatever I am a marketer. I market tools conversations resources discussions products that will. Help men be more capable as fathers, husbands business, owners, community, leaders, etc. Etc. I am a marketer of those things. What a lot of people say is why I helped men be better fathers, husbands, business, owners, etc. Etc. And they think that that's their job title. That is not gonna help you build a movement is not you a marketer. I of film. Blink a Shusterman is not a shoe salesman. He's a marketer of shoes. Somebody who's a baseball player. For example, professional baseball player is not even. Yes, that is his his vocation, but he's to market himself by improving his abilities to be a baseball player that you're always a marketer. I if you get that. Right. And you approach it that way, then you'll build able to build a powerful powerful movement. That's a five I'd give right off the coughing. Jesus's? Good been like one two three. I kind of felt like four and five cheated maybe a little and combined communication marketing. There are a little different. But kind of the same. Yeah. Five do steps. One through four six create about a plan battle plan battle planet up. Greg griffiths? How'd you treat women right without going into Princess territory? I don't I don't think there. I'll take you d to right like, I don't need to worship a woman in order to respect her intruder correctly. You know, if I'm going into a gas station, for example, I'm going to open the door for women that that doesn't mean I'm treating her like a Princess because guess what? I'd open it up for sixteen year old punk kid to if there's a kid behind me walking into the convenience store. I would grab the door, and I would open it, and I would say here you go. So it's not about treating them different or Princess. It's just about treating people with with respect. So, you know, respect women. Appreciate them for who. They are. But I cringe. I literally cringe when I see things on Facebook or Instagram where it's somebody's like a wife's birthday and the guys like she's the center of my universe. She's everything in a couldn't live without her. I'm like, dude, dad's pathetic. And that is going to lead to a very very catastrophic situation. Don't do that do not please heed my warning on this because I did that doesn't play out. Well, my wife is not the center of my universe. And I could not live with that. No. She's a huge part of my universe. She somebody that admire I love I respect I worked to earn her adder admiration and honor. But it's it's not a re revolving around her, and Conversely, I don't want to be the center of her everything either, that's exhausting. So bottom line just. Respect respect women. Appreciate them. Hold them to a standard. Especially if it's, you know, your wife, for example, like you need a holder to the standard you need to hold her to what she said she was going to do. And and also you need to be held to a standard. You need to be held to what you said you're going to do. This is not about keeping a woman barefoot and pregnant. It's about honoring your commitments and expecting that. She honors hers as well. I hope that answers the question. No, I think it does. It does Tyler cross how do you how to get free from nine to five while having a family to provide for in the meantime work longer hours? But I did. So I was doing for seven months, I actually even longer closer to a year. I was doing financial planning an order of man, I would wake up for two hours every morning, and I would do or stuff blog post, website, stuff, podcast, editing, etc. Etc. And then I would go to work, and I would do my thing. And then I'd come home and spend time with my wife and kids, but the kids to bed, and then I would spend two more hours working on order, man stuff. Just the way goes if you wanna if you wanna do something different. You got to do something different. I would also I take your lunch break and eat a very quick five to ten minute lunch. And the rest of the time would be doing your other your the thing, whatever your other businesses. So it's it's not going to be permanent shouldn't be permanent anyways. But it is something that you have to experience and go through a season that is the. Ticket entry, and if you can't or aren't willing to do that. That's okay. But you're never going to be an entrepreneur on less. The only other way that you win the lottery, and you or you have a huge sum of money set aside, and you can afford to quit your job and float your expenses while you're building other business. That's the only other way. Adam Michael, Scott, someone once wrote to a mind that is still the universe. Surrenders? Do you utilize meditation techniques or deprivation tanks throughout your week and what benefits UC from utilizing them? Have you considered doing an order of man meditation retreat? No, no, no. I don't I don't use meditation in that sense. And I don't ever see doing a meditation met a meditate. I can't even say it. It's like it's like refuses to come out of my mouth a meditation retreat for order man are meditation retreat is going into the mountains and getting our asses kicked for three days. So if you consider that a form of meditation than we already are, but we're not going to be sitting around holding handing and Koumba ya while we tap into our shock rose in grounder pelvises to the earth and breath or whatever so just to set the tone for everybody. So like during uprisings. Ryan's and get so much stuff packed into those is it. Two days three days three. Yeah. It's like three and a half days. It's like day one. You're like have we been here a week? It seriously like I cannot imagine right ever doing anything. We're like, okay guys. Let's just you know, relax for. Like there is no relaxing in actually had to take a navy Dave showing up and saying, hey, let's do yoga stay morning for that to even quasi happen United. And I didn't do that. By the way, you I don't know if you noticed I wasn't there. I go work to do. I'm not sitting around stretching my my hamstrings or whatever. I know that people are going to give me grief, and they're gonna say, well, if you doing it wrong, or whatever maybe I just I don't care. I just don't have a desire to do that. I think it's funny because at the uprising one of the things that we do at the end is we have the guys fill out what I call an after action view. It's just tell me what you thought there's some questions in there five or six questions. And would you like bass would you like lease? You know, how how would you improve it? If you came back. What would make you come back that sort of thing? Right. Yeah. And a lot of times the feedback is like, oh, it was like it was there was a lot. We never had time to digest that the point man supposed to be a lot. You can digest when you're done. Yeah. So we get voted. Yeah. I mean, I appreciate what what Adam saying. And it's good to hear from Adam. By the way. I haven't seen him for a while. But no, no, we're not going to be doing any meditate meditation. Retreats? You gotta wake up at. Three AM in the morning to get medication. And before we're stuck doing early morning. If you wanna meditate, that's cool. Just do it on your own time because we got other stuff going on the funny. All right. So I got a wrap up if that's okay. Yeah. I got a hard stop and ten so everyone. So we we we mentioned this earlier questions from nine council to learn more about the iron council net and that brotherhood in which we're part of and very active in you can go to order man dot com slash iron council.

And you squeeze in. What you can where you can. So that it can work with your existing schedule and your ambitions that you have. So you just gave us a great example of how you might do that.

EP 65: Kardashian Bonus Show #17: "Hi, Kanye West"

"Hi, guys. I'm emma. And I'm Julie, and we're the girls behind comments by slabs, and welcome to episode seventeen of our Kardashian bonus show, I have to say, I loved this episode, you know what I did too. Okay. So photos disclosure Julian. I did not watch this one together. Right. And it was heartbreaking. It was there's no attack the second, I was like, how's that possible? No, they weren't together. There's no comparison for how much more, I enjoy physically together because we can posit we can discuss, but I almost for sake of the podcast. I almost think it's better when we don't because we net league, this will be our first time really talking about everything. That's true. Oh, you do this thing. We watch together. We're like you don't speak the whole episode and then all of a sudden on the next day the puck. I love that part was laughing. I was I didn't hear you say a fucking word. I know I think subconsciously save it all for you guys. Okay. So we're just gonna totally do a full recap, because we have so many things to say, I want to start out by the first scene, which was, we got so many DM. About this. It was Scott, Courtney and rain in the kitchen of Courtney's house. Holy fuck rain, rain. Oh, cute. I feel like as we're talking. We need a sliding graph of rate, communist deal. Saints spot. You know what I mean? This kid is cuter by the week. You know what all about personality? That's why he I just think that saints a little shy is. Honestly, what I think it, it saints very shy. Rain is sitting in the kitchen doing these faces, and there's there were so many different things to this number one Courtney, Scott's dynamic, like I know we talk about it all the time, but they're co-parenting really is incredible incredible. Number one, number two the way Scott engages with rain. It's not forgetting about being how hot it is, is he's such a good and engaged father. Yeah, he's like the height man. He's the ultimate height man. Like he he couldn't he wanted to know how excited he was about these, like very non. Literally stick his tongue out Scott's like do that again. See what? I can do this one also like get out of here, you how to do that. It was it was just so good. Like literally nothing profound happened. It was the three of them sitting in the kitchen. And we still think it was like cinematic genius. I like these little like opening scenes that they do I do to better than like a total fake potline like if they would have started I seen this episode, there was no stupid plotline in it. That's how I felt camping a little camping was a door -able. But I'm saying it was a little bit of a filler wasn't. It was a little bit of a filler, but it wasn't like let's have them purposely, do this for the sake of, of episodes. I know what it was. It wasn't the actual camping it was the shopping with Jonathan. That was the filler. Yeah. But, but it was wasn't like what I need is like, when they do that thing where they like prank Chris in one episode. And it's like it goes on for the whole episode. I'm not talking about Todd cranes. But like I don't care about. Yes. No. You're right. Okay. Seen to is khloe Scott got lunch together. I love pairing. I just love to mazing love him. Scotches shows. I think he's just so happy to be involved that he'll go out like with any parent of people do you know, I always this calm that I always give you your one of my friends, where I feel like I could bring you any sort of event and you'd be able to mesh any group. Yeah. That's how I feel about Scott. Yes, you can bring around the grandparents he do amazing hits because at heart me, and Scott are both yet does. Yeah. As a Jewish. That's what it is. It's a meeting. We, we don't talk about the fact that he's Jewish enough. By the way, I know they'll one episode where he liked decided to like, go to temple. And he Scott yarmulke. Oh, that's why we don't talk about it about me that we did one time, where it's like the heartbeat me. We did it with, like, daddy, Scott, uncle, Scott. Scotty. That's funny. Title. Okay, keep going. Okay. So this was funny chloe's talking saying, how Mason called her and was, like, what are you back? I wanna see you. And she was like, weren't, you just throwing up every like I'm not going near you. And she goes on to say that he was like, oh, I wanna come to Cleveland with you. And that's when she asked me, but I had this moment when Chloe was talking about Mason, being sick where it was, like, obviously, so logical like slavery kids, get sick. Like it's kind of when your dad gets sick, it's like you do that. Yeah, yeah. Yeah. That's such a good point. What also specifically Courtney's kids? Yeah. Don't you feel like they just have so much vitamin c like manuka Honey, in their systems that they just it doesn't even enter that? Like I feel like their immune systems are the highest. Yeah. Late day Lewis. What's new in throwing up? No. She likes streamlines echinacea is how I feel any of the words you're sending. I've never heard of it. He of these, what's vitamins e. I feel that way. And but I have to say, there's no, I would imagine there's no better house to get sick and then Courtney's house. You know, she has like the most amazing natural chicken soup. Artie on, like she always has chicken soup dove just in case. Yeah, but it's like bone broth that's different than chicken soup. Yes. Let me tell you something. I would take my mom's chicken soup over Courtney's bone broth any fucking day of the week. Jodi that should be a huge. Oh, she knows. But was having seen anything else, major. Oh, this one thing where they were talking about where she was saying about tristen schedule. And they're like, what is what Tristan go to bed usually. I don't know why that came up. And she was like, well, it depends on game days. He is so much Trenton after game that usually doesn't go sleep till four. And she was like, and then, of course, I have to be up till four AM, and they were all kind of like, why do you have to be up like no one says youth before she's like, yeah, but that's like the only time we get to spend together. She also that he takes a pre-game nap and that because she knows she has to be up after the game. She she sleeps. She like now with him before the game because she knows Tristan is like having a baby. That was my first thought it's. So funny thought that's also when I was watching, I was like sheet treats this, man, which will get into the leader seen what she's literally just like making his bed, but she treats him like a child slash king. You know what I mean very weird. It's very, it's to the most interesting dynamic, and the thing about it is, like, first of all, who? Says that like I have to be up for, like, if we didn't get to spend time to obviously as something's not working interest in is just not one to deviate from his own schedule. And I think that's the issue where it's like khloe so okay with that. We're like, oh, of course, take your pre-game nap and your practice and you'll be before, and I'll stay up with us. We can spend time together, not just water before him. I don't know. I mean I go back and forth. I think this is the issue. This is honestly, what I think, issues, I go back and forth on one hand being like that must be really hard to date a professional athlete. And I bet that if you looked at a lot of professional athletes relationships that the wives or in certain cases, the husbands have to. Have to play that role kind of taking on these really weird time slots. And all that kind of. Yes, so, but what I'm saying is, I think that because I know Tristan's character is why I'm so upset by this. Where's it was Eric and Jessie? James decker, I think like she's up till four, but the other difference is even his character. It's at she saying, I have to be up four fauria. Like it's like she sounds like she doesn't like it doesn't feel like a choice for. Whereas if Eric and Jesse James, aren't she'd my God. Of course, I'm a four AM like I wanna stay spend every minute with him. Well, I think the fem- I think that kind of just plays into the theme of this whole episode, which was that she was really doing everything in her power to salvage thoroughly ship. And part of that was just spending as much physical time with him that she can, like this episode to me really outlined, how much of a struggle, it was for her. Yeah. Because it wasn't her going back and forth to Cleveland was always a bitch. But now that she has a kid, it's a whole other level. Yeah. And. I don't know it really upset me. No. I no attorney. Yeah, it was. And we're gonna get into it more when she's at his house because I feel like that was a whole little other get into it. Okay. So the next scene was Scott Jay, which, as you know, is our now it's fair favorite in the world. And they were at Scott's house, which I want to say when they pan to the one staircase confirmed to me that his birthday party was definitely at his house, because that was that same staircase. Yes. And that is how, you know, you are psychotic like little that was my first thought I was like, oh my God. Okay. So few snapshot was obviously his because we never see a ton of his house. Yeah. And the lights rough, I couldn't really tell which is weird that he wouldn't show it off more because it's like obviously his design. And he's coming out flip like, Jessica, you'd think he'd be like my house that I designed. But if he has Kris Jenner behind him. Maybe he's planning a house to a right before the premier full Disick like flog. Yeah. I can't talk on this owed, but in episode of Brad, which is going to air tomorrow. We're going to talk about kylie's log because holy shit. Wait I have to tell everyone it just came out last night. So if you didn't watch it literally pases and go, watch it. It's nineteen minutes. You've logged for the first time you guys have home where you're gonna love it. It was amazing. It was a day in the life. It was insane. She showed his she took us through the entire like Kylie cosmetics off. It's only say, okay anyway. So they're at they're at Scott's house and MJ's there. And he comes downstairs, and she's like, oh, did I wake you up, and he's like, no, I was up at six Mason. Mason wants to go to the coffee bean has his whole morning routine. So I'm with him. It's just like literally fuck me who is. I know. No, I know he so sexy. I can't okay? I have to say something. So this whole, basically, the scene was just him explaining to MJ y talentless, his new clothing line is going to be a success. And she didn't really understand the name talentless, and he was explaining how it's just a plan where it's because everybody says that they have no talent. She Sola cuteness such like why don't you just? Make talented. I think you're so talented. Yeah. And he talked with ho clothing line that was it. But whatever the real point about this up. So it was just seeing Scott interaction and Carly who's are kind of insurance slash best friend was sitting with me, and she's like you know what? I think makes got so hot. She's like he's an attainable hot. Yeah. She's like he's not like olym- Hemsworth. He's like an actual the Jewish guy that could be in a frat Syracuse. And I was like, you know, which I think is so much hotter it. But it was such not hotter. But more attractive, I guess, more tractive because it's more like realistic a movie star. It's not like a Brad Pitt of like holy shit. It's kind of like, hey, wouldn't be the craziest thing if I was drunk one night in college. You know what I mean? Yeah. It's like I'm trying to think of how to scribe it. Why like there's just something more attractive about the fact that it's like you're with somebody that isn't like you're not looking at them like, oh my God. You're so fucking attractive that it's like out of reach or like you feel insecure, because they're so much more attractive. Totally totally, although I will say ever since I watched that she Q video every time he comes on camera. I do notice like, wow, he is always really Tam. He's glowing. He's glowing blue eyes. That's what it is. He's always glowing think of your kids is minded, his holy tear over the place. Gonna get. Okay. So moving onto the next. Oh, wait. No, no, no. We forgotten important part about that. The important part is that when Chris was there. That's just what I'm Jay is there. I think it was just. Okay, everyone salting Morioka moving onto the next scene, which was Kim, and Courtney, and they're talking about how they're gonna make Finn stas saying, how KENDALL and Kylie, have it. I don't know if anyone else did this, I can pause that show and just like freaked out for ten minutes about the fact that the Kardashians have fins does that may potentially the I know we have with khloe tweeted, and she was like yet, we should figure out a way to check. That I wouldn't be surprised about, by the way anyways, khloe tweeden was used at once that I, I never saw the point of it. But like Courtney made it for me. But I think like I am magin that Kylie uses hers a lot. I think she's the only one that does and KENDALL, maybe because kinda so mysterious. Yeah, I could see that. Because like if let's say they really wanna watch someone story like if you are any sort of thirsty hungry person, and you see that the credentials watcher store, you're going to post that on your story. So they can't really watch stories freely. What I mean? Like, we would never that's the can pose like sing about Kylie probably thing was to picture stories that are on their fence does, I can only imagine or all like all of them. There are so many behind the scenes photos that we probably are just not privy to which makes sense. It's so true. So they also were talking about how kinison how north gets upset when she sees her inherent makeup because it means that she was getting ready before a couple of before. It's just so funny like that. That's a thing. You know what I mean? That's such an example of a celebrity child. Yeah. But I guess like. If I were to see, like when I was little, and I saw my mom putting on makeup. I'd like no that she was going out. No. Of course. But it's just funny that it's like a full. Yeah. If you look when the glimp- team comes into the closet, that's mommy's leaving. Exactly. And also, this is when Kim introduced the idea of them going camping saying that north saw the parent trap, and she wants to go camping, no, the funniest part is, I know you're about 'cause I wrote it down. It was the fact that she saw that, that scene, which was the Catholic seen apparent chapels wanna go camping who draws that conclusion from that scene in the paratroop, where they like literally torture, I have. No, that's, that's the Connie north. Oh, she's like a little bit. She likes that a little bit. Yes. Should you know what I mean? Like they like put her out into the when they put Meredith Blake out on the air mattress into the ocean. And she was like I have to do that. Yeah. She was probably so upset that they were sleeping in tents and she couldn't put her mom in the ocean that she couldn't put sane. You know north a foot Larsen. So this is, but it was so funny. Kim, this was the most Lieber him ever like sorry, but it really was she was like. And she was so true. Yeah. And I was screaming at the TV being like I feel you. She's like camping is the last fucking thing in the world that I want to do. And I was like, Kim, I have never related to more. I respect people that do it, but I physically will never for the life of me under stand the appeal. I don't think that's a libra thing. I think that's just a thing. It is thing, but her, she's very vain. And that is that's a trait of libra. Listen, I, I wouldn't go camping with my life. I know. But I'm just saying the way she, she is like she's always been, I don't know. I don't know just the most Kimsey ever, and I related to it so intensely. No, I agree with you take your. That's like if my kid wanted to go camping. Yeah. Trying to think of something more relatable. But yeah. Your kid wanted to go camping, wouldn't you think that maybe that's I guess, Connie's not going camping either? No. I think Honey would go camping. No, I ju-. I think he's like, I think Connie is a we're nature is sometimes, and that's where north guts it from really. Yeah. I do I think that he would be willing. But I don't think he would do it the way they did. I think you at air mattress. Yeah, exactly how shocked they didn't have much. The went camping. They didn't have Munt on camera. I don't know. I mean, I guess, RV come on. What are they have done? That. That's campy. They totally did, okay. Moving onto the next which was Kim and will leak at Kim south. And again Julian, I always really love seeing Melita interact with the other siblings, when Chloe isn't there, just because I think it's a different kind of dynamic in a way. It's almost like when we used to see Jordan Kim talk, you know what I mean? Yeah, Jordan enclosure polio. God, a really just any anyone of the sort, or like Larson, any of them. So Kim was saying. That she can't wait for the other the baby to come because it's kind of like she's on maternity leave. No one really expects anything over, even though she didn't technically have the kid? She gets that time off. And she was like, yeah. We can just like sleep and eat, and not do anything and I, I don't know. I hadn't thought about it like that for some reason that she gets maternity leave from law school. Yeah. Yeah. I guess when you're thinking about people being, quote, self employed or in their own track on law school. You don't really think about them getting time off. But the thing is that, yes. When eighteen hours a week for law school, and you can't expect a person just had a baby to put an eighteen hours a week. Regardless of other Kim Kardashian her, just like the normal person that wouldn't have any way totally. And she also is talking to me because Maliki wasn't in Bali about their readings which were two parts on one part. She says how the medium told her that this next baby is going to be her father, rob crash, Ian reincarnated, which, I totally believe. Yeah. And the second thing was that khloe tell you about her reading, and will league is like no. Which, by the way is so classic. That cloyd. I think he was holding onto every single aspect of that relationship in the deepest level. And then I think Chloe was upset that was there. But she did say, Courtney after and she did say like my reading said that, like I have trust issues and whatever, but I think that if Kim wasn't there and she had had the reading on her own and just gotten that information that she wouldn't have told you there of them if it wasn't on camera. Yeah. Yeah. I think also though, because she knows that Maliki such a bulldog when it comes to being protective of her, that it's almost like she doesn't want a fuel the fire unless she has to. Well, that's what I was saying, as they as they got more into it later on the road or Molina's asking questions that. It's like I think the only I think the reason Maliki out to be the one to ask those questions is because everyone else is afraid to ask khloe whereas Moluccas like fuck this, I'm not going to be afraid. I have to ask has a very unique situation, the family, not only in her relationship to khloe, but also in the sense that I think the other members find comfort in knowing that she can get things out of khloe that they necessarily Kate, you know what I mean. Okay. So now let's go to camp more, where Jonathan and Kim decide to shop, like, which I have to say this was as I was talking about a filler scene. That was a filler seen filler seen beyond, but I would have done six shit to be there had just like witness Kim Kardashian in her snakeskin fans like white, he'll person that I can picture camping less than Kim is Jonathan. Yeah. See only one also fix up sour skittles. And I was like for me. I saw that too. I, I know that little head. They're like just going through the store vise of the funniest thing was when, when they're freaking out sleeping bags and Johnson's, like like, are you gonna do muted colors, and she's like, of course we're doing like vs? Casino, neon sleeping bag. Are you kidding God forbid that was that was Connie wouldn't have proved I feel like I know? But that's Kim's mindset now to. Yes, she's well, when your house, literally all off white, I feel like you see color. You just freak out. It's the Josie. Wa fact I see colored I freak out originally 'cause you have. Eyecare. Asli adopts adopt. Yeah. That's when you know, if it's spending, too much time with ganja or adjacent to Kanye stocking traumatized by neon because of Connie's truck station. Trust me, literally, even if I never met Konya would still be traumatized by neon. They used to make me ever. Ever. He just fell out of your. I had never been introduced to cauda as human being as an entity. I would still be when they used to make us us highlights goes like this heinous. I'm not using weight. You always do that. We were talking about cardinal before it was run with offsets. I had a see ones though the ever tell them about that. No wait. I have to say it again. Even if we did, we were at the weekly, like most house, New Yorker party last year, and Hennessy Carolina, Cardi, B sister was their full name fucking flex by. And like I truly totally freaks out. It was like, Julie. This is your moment, like you have to say something, and she's kind of say talking to the guy from Hollywood. I'm locked and Julie just makes a fucking beeline over to her. And next thing you know they are chatting up in the court to, to what she was moving. She was moving from the Bronx to queens. You're asking how the move is going. Yeah. Well, she told me to try that you all. Oh my God, I would've unpacked, Tennessee's hole. I wanna take one minute to tell you guys about Dunkin's power breakfast options. So power up your day with the Dunkin power breakfast sandwich, and the FAA Dunkin bowl. They're filled with protein and delicious better for you ingredients. So there's two options here. The first is the power breakfast sandwich. And it has twenty four grams of protein and twenty grams of whole grains. It's loaded with egg whites with spinach peppers, and onions, Turkey sausage, cheese, and whole grains. She's the second is the egg white Dunkin bowl, which has the protein in veggies that you crave without the bread. So the Dunkin bowl is et weights with spinach roasted potatoes, cheddar cheese, and caramelized onions, and that one has fourteen grams of protein, also delicious, but a little more of a low carb option. They're really just deliciously easy way to add a boost of protein to your day. I'll go to Dunkin for other things which be able to go there for breakfast is so amazing. I can speak from experience that the Dunkin bolt is delicious. So again, power up your day with either of these options, they are filled with protein and delicious. Better for you ingredients. So we hope you guys enjoy. And now back to show. Okay. Let's take out to seen seven where they're back. It's got house and Scott showing Chris. I'm of the new landscaping I was house this that one thing that was very funny. I don't know if you wrote on the outline was when Corrie was trying to start the fire. Oh, yeah. And he's like, just like pressed up on over there and Chris was not having Christmas. My mom that was pique my mom like my dad trying to do some sort of some sort of job and my mom's like micromanaging every aspect of it. You know what I mean? Oh my God. I was literally your mom. Yeah. It's easiest thing. We they've never seen your mom a picture of two of them. All my God. You don't get Emma's mom is literally like a carbon copy of Kris Jenner, and I mean, this classier possibles that what you were going to say, you want me to say, I was gonna say with no disrespect to Chris. I think she's absolutely. My mom. Never had any worked on note. No injections. So it was like a little more natural. Yes, you could say but I think Chris's absolutely stunning. I mean they're both beyond gorgeous, and they are. I mean. Their pictures of your mom where I'm like. It's So Chris, it scary. No doubt everything down to the airing. So the Schnell to the red lipstick to the nails like the big Kris Jenner never met your mom because I think you'd be jealous. I think she'd be like, how're you me but better? We have two side by side. Now patriotic thing because I feel like ooh. Okay. So they're talking about talentless, obviously, which is Scott's clothing line. And I don't know if anybody else had felt this way. But even before this episode aired I was always really curious about Chris's involvement, like I just Sumed that any project any of them have, including Scott that she would just take the ten percent of take on the manager duties. And the way it seemed in this scene was that he really had been doing it kind of on his own. She didn't know much about it. He was like educating her on the line almost. Yeah, he, he didn't seem to. He didn't seem to have had that many previous discussions with her. And she was basically saying, I totally get you wanted to this on your own. But, like you have to tell me when these things are launching number once that the rest of the family can promote it. And number two, because there's a lot of press that we need to do around at, we can get you on shows and Scott was like, you know, I had never thought of that I and the other thing Scott was saying thought this was so, like cute of Scott where he's done this before. Like, I never wanted anybody, like in the film they feel like they had to promote it. And it's like, well, first of all, obviously, they would. Without feeling like they had to. It's just like I feel like he always walks this line of not wanting to ask too much of them, because he feels like, I don't know maybe that he feels like he owes them so much already that he doesn't wanna ask for more. I don't know but it's so interesting. And I think there's part of him that he like he makes clear, but I think it's more than you let on that was like, I just want to do this on my own, like I just want us to be Scott disag- knock Kardashian, I want this to be successful because I did the marketing and because I came up with the line, and I did everything for it, which I get I totally get. Although I have to say he's lucky that this stuff was actually so appealing that it was like it was a pity. It wasn't a pity promotion when they did this stuff is sick. And it's what they wear. Anyway, it is exactly what they wear and Christmas saying, she was like she was a crew doesn't take his off. She's like he loves it. He lives in it. It's very again like. Very con-. Yeah. Ask it is kind of honestly, I swear to God, you could show me that and easy sweatshirt. And I don't know if I'd be able to tell the difference if it was just on camera, I could show you using a guild. Honestly wouldn't know the difference. Honestly, like killed in something else. So true and no, I don't think it's alternative apparel. Fucking easy. Okay. Moving easy season three. When we were, which we'll talk about later in tomorrow's upset about Connie David Letterman when he picked up the shoes and was like, oh, seven hundred like I had no fucking idea. I know you all them fifty seven hundreds. Yeah. So the next scene is khloe true, and Maliki. They're going on the plane to Cleveland and last time league, it was in Cleveland was when she was born which if you remember, also literally two days after trips and cheated on khloe so that was just. A really toxic time and I can imagine. She had a very negative view of Cleveland solely based on the fact that her previous experience was that such a tragic time. Do you think people go to Cleveland? They're like I wouldn't it be please. Let the Thompson room this for us. So there's a couple of things about this scene that I wanna touch on number one that infamous Instagram of khloe in the leopard cats or jumps, whatever it's called. We saw the, the behind the scenes it was created it wasn't worth watching every minute of the credit ask you to that behind the scene. Photo of the leopard jumpsuit Lee, clearly, you could not be more sarcastic. But I'm so serious. Because when that picture, aired, it was, like that was when she got so much because that was, like, you know, sometimes khloe face. And then she like fucking face June's, that was like a hardcore face June. And I love to seeing it. I don't know is that what you said, we just sold two hundred of these, like, we like, we just sold out of these jumps, because it was good. Twenty million twenty million I was like two hundred. Also true was really horrible on the flight. But what happened? Oh, when she said, we sold twenty million of these jumpsuits and she's like good job. I to go to college. Oh, no. We never would have been able to afford it. Otherwise, it's the same up other. It's the same line from when they're in York and Kim's, like yeah. We got it for yoga membership is thank God would have never been able to afford it. That's exactly how I felt. Yeah, I fucking love when they make those jokes. I know a lot of people think that it's really on insensitive and not funny, and I see that, but I personally find that it's really funny because at some point, you have to make light of the extravagance that you are such a part of. And I think, yeah, that just do that. You know what I mean totally shell? You take us out to Scott in the warehouse yet, this is Scott was in a warehouse and not. Do you wanna take seat after that? No. That was just showing his hands on. It's like when when. It's like when when Kylie shows up at the factory and you're like you're really involved in this art. You something really funny about this, that I just realized is, as I was telling you to intro it. I was about to say like when you were like, yeah. So Scott was a warehouse. Andrew had an orgasm, and I was thinking, we simultaneously talk about how hot it's got is. And also how badly we want him on this podcast that if he ever did. I think about it every day. I don't know what we would do. Like we ask me, regular questions and not only would be in the moment. But also, it's so embarrassing now. Yeah. Like think about how many things we've said, it's like I could never actually. We fucking need a minute. Oh my God. It's cut. Memento OTP. Closet fucking. Oh my God. Right before the horror. During the. Okay. Let's. I can't believe this is our job. I can't believe that. Okay. Let us now onto seem ten. They finally north gets her way as always, and they go camping. So it's Kim north Larson Larson sorta Sophia Tracy and her daughter Ryan and this was one for the books. Let me tell you, let me tell you something. Don't frac- kids are the cutest, fucking things in the entire world, underwriters fuck. And I think the middle one and saints are gonna be thing. They could be totally could be they went to patrol together. I know I saw that. They're in the car and Kim his face timing, Connie and north takes she's like I kinda west Sheila getting knows it's crazy that she has an understanding. Now if parents are I think it was easier to grasp Yukon who kinda was like, because she can hear the things that he does. And like here his music. It was like that's when they were at Nobu and Chris talking amazing, who's your favorite rapper he's north goes, Konya west is my dad like she knows. But it's so. Hearing her. Hi Connie west. Like it's so funny. Hugh. That's what we titled is up soda. I think right. Yeah. The graphic yet. So Kim is on camera talking about how she thinks it's gonna go. She's a here's how I think it's gonna go Larson, not gonna do anything is gonna do everything, like I wish true in Chicago were older that I could make khloe everything which was there. She would have literally set at that entire tent by herself totally beyond. Right god. Of course, she would have had to, you would have had to. There's no way, which is so funny. She said that not knowing that khloe said the thing later in the episode about making the bed. Yeah. It's it's been a theme in just like she was Kim's assistant for the closet organizing which found last week. Yeah. Right. I thought that. So one thing that's kind of interesting is that there's an there's an age difference between these girls because north and Ryan are both five and Sophie as eleven but so feel our daughters. Seems to really get along like amazingly with all the kids. Yeah. I think she like, you know, sometimes when you have that you'll get this, obviously, when you have family friends that are younger than you like significantly younger. And it's like you love a having these cute family friends that are kind of like your cousins. But also, you get to be the one in charge the oldest, I think she kind of flexes up Pratt told me nor like we know north is in charge. There's no way that like eleven year old Sophy is in charge of north north is in charge of everyone. Jimmy. North I them wanting like. The I thought this was the funniest thing ever. So they're on a boat going fishing. And Kim was saying that when she was eleven she would always go fishing with her brothers. And obviously, when you 'cause I'm such an experience fishermen. You have to put warm as beat. Yeah. This was funny she saying that Courtney and their other sub sister would use make ticket signs and saying that she that Kim was killing the worms so they would like walk around chanting down with Kimberly. We must stop her. That's so funny and then Kim calls her during the confessional. And she's like, what did you used to say to go fishing, and she said it was like Donald can really, we must stop Kimberly said, they would walk around, like if they were on, like a literal picket line. I don't know why I was I wasn't even high with an I was watching I was laughing out loud for a solid like eight minutes. Fucking funny. I was just actually Courtney dashing at eleven with a little picket. Sign. Quit. He has not changed a bit. That's so funny. No, it's literally the exact same. Oh, that was very funny. Pesca -tarian line who northbound Pesca -tarian, another talking about having hotdogs, whatever north and actually Pesca -tarian. I couldn't tell north Ryan who said it was it like it's zooms out either way, even if it was so few who taught any of the three of them about that. I don't know. And they're like, well too bad because that's what you're. Okay. Take us to the next. I feel it was Ryan. She seems smart. Yeah. Probably okay. Nexen seen eleven for those of you keeping track at home. So Chloe Maliki sure in the car, and they're going to the botanical gardens and Molina's kind of question starting to question khloe, and she's like so does just trust the no, you're taking true to botanical gardens and she's like, yeah. I told him she's like he didn't wanna come. And she was like we'll use his practice. He can't just pick up and go and. It was like Maliki was so frustrated because what she going to say that. But she she was like I just wish I was here for these moments. And I it was Molina's way of, like, kind of not only questioning the amount of time that I is putting it with her question, the amount of time, putting it true. And Chloe was quick to defend him to be like he can't just pick up and go whenever he wants has practice. He has obligates would be nice if he couldn't I'm which is he could be can't just, you know, okay done to say, I'm gonna go take my daughter botanic gardens in the middle of the day. And I think movie just wasn't happy with the answer. And I think Chloe was happy. She was able to give as an answer because it's like who's gonna fight with that excuse, I think you're spot on, I don't even have any tax, I felt the exact same way. Great. Let me continue with the conversation. Oh, so they get to potential that, like weird lizard echo thing that they're playing with. But the thing that I was saying that I find that khloe, Courtney and Kim are all really good at, and I and probably Kylie. I just don't see enough it is that they're really good. Giving their kids experiences rather than just things like Trues obvious knocking remember going to tanto gardens at one year old and one years old, and like seeing lizard going on the train. But like they're very good at giving them experiences and not just throwing things at them. Will they do both? They do both. But it's like there's a lot of things they don't have, like Kim didn't have to take north camping shouldn't have stickers to take her like they need sure that they do. And I think flow is really good at it too. Like I think khloe probably doesn't more where she's like I want them to experience these, like, little childhood things at a lot of kids, do like going to Papa troll, going to Disney on ice, all those little things, I know when I watched the crashes, I go through this really interesting to see my mind on one hand and makes me so excited for motherhood, and having all that on the same time, it makes me realize how difficult it is. And you're looking at family that has so much help. Yeah. Like, when I say, difficult, I don't even mean in terms of managing just the amount of things that you have to do in order to keep your kids like soul. Entertained just nothing else. I'm speaking from an entertainment perspective. And we're also like I said, watching people that have so much hope it's really crazy. Yeah. Like an ad for not getting pregnant, you know it is what it on. So we just want to take one minute to tell you guys about Abe is really cool company. It's basically an oscillation tracking bracelet. So let me explain if you've ever struggled to conceive than you know, that getting pregnant isn't always easy.

And are you tracking your fertile window accurately and all of these things, and have you ever wished that you could understand your cycle phases in real time, because a lot of these very popular period, track apps, they're still a large margin of error? I mean, personally I always have a hard time understanding cycle, and what that means. So that is where it comes in, if a Swiss startup company, dedicated to advancing women's health, and to breaking taboos around discussing the Mestral cycle, which I feel very passionately about, so what it is so whereabouts, e e certified medical device in the form of a comfortable bracelet that uses cutting edge technology to detect different phases of mental cycle in real time.

Okay. Now back to the show. Okay. Let's move on now to them in a tent. So this was just fucking hilarious. Because Larsen is exactly as Kim described her to be. Useless fused just and I don't think he would disagree with anybody say, no can flat out was like of come like there was nothing that she contributed to the group, I guess. Yes. Her daughter. Yeah. She was just a waste of like, and I like Laura just would never be like who am. I gonna go camping with let me take large Tracy's camping every Larson Pippen. Agreed to go the first so few probably wasn't dying to go. Camping was just so funny. It was really cute north, and they were sitting by the fire, and Kim says to Northridge like, thank goodness Saint you didn't. Call me would have been too cold when she calls him Saint north. I just lose it. I know it's so cute and north and Saint her finally getting along like being cute, and friends. I know it was really sweet. The other thing is they're making the fire an obviously, none of them don't have make fucking fire and like. They're like, what, what are we to lighter fluid that seems like too much in little Ryan's in the corner, like you need, Flint, civic it? Which is why hits like she's on that said that. Pesca -tarian smart cookie that little Ryan. She's a smart cookie. You know, she is. Yeah, we don't give her enough credit and we don't talk about her and the little baby. Oh, he's a TA. It's because Tracy is a really good example of a. No. She was initially the publicist now. I don't know her exact role like her title, but she's an example of someone. She doesn't want to be in the public. I don't think she's fame hungry. She happens to make a lot of appearances because of how close she is. But she's not like in it for the fame. You know what I mean? And that's why we don't see the kids as much as we probably could if you follow them, you see the kids, of course if you. Yeah. But no, it is really interesting. I think Tracy's are really good person for tavern her corner. I think she's so like, level, headed and mart and ground at yes, that's the word. You're looking. Yeah. Yeah. It's so true anyway. So they could not be more excited to leave. They had the best time and she's like north. It's a tradition because fuck that he knows funny when they're in the tent, obviously go begging to leave. And so feels like no, I kind of want to say like you have to stay if you're staying, you're not going, first of all, and north comes into lake Sega night, and she's like everybody pray that was a that was a shadow to Sunday service that was a shadow to you, Julie yet, you know what the tea north praying and sour skittles. This phil. The two onto me. It's the fences. Okay. Let us now transition back to Cleveland where Chloe and Melita are at tripton ex tristen and chloe's house. And they are making khloe is making tristen bed. I guess it's their bed, right? It's. Okay. I have a couple of things to say, number one, those sheets, we I wanted to fall into them, they were charcoal grey, almost, like, satin, did they not look like the most inviting, just like I wanted to roll around not even with a guy singing sheets of AGIP shin. Con from uptown girl. Oh, yeah. What a co. Wow. Yeah. So, anyway, so close, making the bed, and she is, she's unbelievable. And yes, she's amazing. And that's when she said that Kim was like, yeah. You know, can you say that I should be from when I was older like foot khloe to get us such a common. She was like, yeah, I haven't easing making and I wrote it down. Like I've always tried to do this to me. She's like, please water. You're so good at it. I'm like we were like fighting about it last night, because she doesn't Carly also. And she'll be like, please go do this year. So good at I am. Like if you just asked we instead of trying to nip me. I would happily. Do choose where you're like, please yours. Do all the little whiny voice you do like fuck. No. You're spot on what I do. It just works for some reason, not with me with Carly, does will you end up doing it anyway? But maybe not because of that tactic. Anyway, they're making the bed. Enclose Maliki on this train of really kind of, interrogating, her not interrogating. But. What's good way to put it kindly question, questioning her happiness with tristen? And I don't know. I just think that khloe wasn't being. So she wasn't lying, but she wasn't being so open, then open about her dissatisfaction, right? Yeah. Okay. Also, the point that everybody wants us to talk about was that all of the pictures of tristen were blurred. And everybody was like, oh my God. Did he like cause a scene after we know until Chloe tweeted about it and Chloe was like, yeah, I have no idea why that was the case. She was like I should obviously we I'm not trying to hide his identity. She's like, maybe he didn't sign a waiver for those particular picture. She's like all find out about it. I have no idea. I think he just didn't sign a waiver for the season. But we thought that it was I always thought it was because he didn't sign a waiver you thought it was because she wanted him blurred out. No, no, no. I, I agree. I thought that too. It's everybody notice it like she was kind of like Nacho saying it, I wanted to be watching it for the first time like God. Yeah. Okay.

Okay, so Chloe league are still in Cleveland and they are at lunch together. So Molina's boyfriend OT Genesis who shouted out last episode because LeBron James did the video with not Genesee. He's amazing. And he face. They're talking and close asking her. She's like. Yeah. Do you miss him? And is like yeah. I do in close. Yeah, you know that's because you guys are always together. And we'll yeah, that's typically how it is in the beginning of relationships khloe and had a different close. Always because she's always eating athletes, always has a different dynamic. Yes. She's not used to that feeling of constantly being together by you know, this was probably the most candid conversation of the entire episode in terms of khloe Melita flow. He was ready to talk about it, this one, I feel like at the other point she wasn't. And that's why she said the thing like you miss it like she was kind of egging the conversation on. Yes, a Maliki assery is everything. Okay. With tristen and Chloe says, listen, I'm not gonna pretend like everything is okay. She says, I thought this was really interesting that Tristan counts the months yet we're, we're Helgi like it's been seven months, and she's like, okay. It's been seven months. And so what? Right like, and she said she was like, yeah, it's been seven months. But you have to think in terms of it's been seven months since you spent one stupid weekend in ruined a three year relationship. It's just so interesting like listening to her talk about it. It's like why are they still together? I've such to Audi with it because on one hand dual. When I said, I just say that I said it wrong. No. You said it. Right. I just think on one hand. It's like I question if she's delusional in the sense where she's so in love with him that she doesn't care. And then I on one hand it seems like she just stowed doesn't care at all about him that she's just together because it's these your option. I yeah. I don't think it's the first one I don't think she's deeply in love with him here. I think it's maybe for true sake. I don't know. Right like here she's not making it seem but other times where she stays with him. And she's talking about it. We're like let me ask you question that conversation after he cheated where they stayed together, and she said, you know, we're lucky he's lucky the cameras, weren't there like screamed at him or whatever we never heard what his side of the conversation was. Can you really imagine a world where Tristan is like on his hands, and he's begging to your back together, or she just yelled at him, and then forgave him and there was no real like, please? Can we make this work? I have no idea. I really really thought about I'd never thought about it either. I you're right though. I can't I'm not saying it didn't happen. But I can't imagine a world where I envisioned tristen seriously on his hands in these and she's never said that she's never said anything even along the lines of him being like you know, he he, he felt so guilty. He wanted to make this work. Like those words me, I'm wrong have never come out of her mouth. I, I don't think they have. Remember that there's a part of me that could that thinks it could be like, let's say he really was engaging in such almost desperation to kind of get back with her. I could see Chloe not voicing that because she could look at it as almost a masculinity, and she's so protective of her like she does more protective of her boyfriend's than she is of herself, and I could imagine her not wanting to air that side. I I'm not saying it happened just could see it happening in her never talking about it. She was more concerned about making it apparent to all of us that she was mad about it, then making it apparent to all of us that he felt bad about. I never got the sense that he felt guilty. It was kind of like he cheated she got mad and then nothing ever happened because because the and you're so. Right. But the basis of it is like it's so different with beyond Jay, z type situation where it's like a one time, like we talked about this in the bonus feature on upset like where it's a one time thing, I like trysted. How can you really sit there and say that I feel so guilty? Like it wasn't like you had drunk in mistake, it's like your cereal. Peter, you know what I mean? Like to me to me, there's a major difference. There isn't any and we don't know the logistics of the beyond CJ Z cheating, but I, I do agree that how. But then, like, I don't know this is what I question like, why would tryst and be like, okay, let's stay together. Maybe maybe also for true sake. I don't know. It's such an interesting. It's so you're told that hold on. Let's just let's call Spade here. It's not like he had zero love for her. I don't know. No. That's not what I'm saying. I'm just saying like. He obviously. And she said, this doesn't respect her to the extent that she should be respected as a woman as a partner. It's hard for me to imagine like he would cheat on her as publicly as he did without a care in the world and still fight stay with her. I don't know what I'm saying makes sense, but it just doesn't seem I always question that always question. Like if you wanted out why wouldn't you just go out it wasn't a one time steak? That's the thing. Yeah. Like, is it because he's being so well, taken care of. Well, first of all, that's what I was just gonna say. Even so. Okay, let's backtrack. We've established that. We do think that he loves or loved at one point khloe. Right. There's that so there's one aspect, but number two, especially the fact that he was in Cleveland really not surrounded by his teammates. But it's not like he has like so-so so many donkeys a whole Kardashian family, or like all this family to have not only a woman there, that's comforting in itself, but to have khloe who literally is like the. The best home acre, there is I think that was part of what he was in love with so child fucked up. But I, I really do that. We talk about. It's like no, no, no. You go. I like talk about her treating him like child like that is the most childish approached the relationship that I've ever heard like. Oh, she takes care of me. Yeah. What you want is a mom, not a partner. It's almost like he missed like I almost feel like the scene of her making the bed was setting us up for this scene because it's almost like as much as he missed her. He probably missed that aspect of to, like, he's he you know what he was missing. She even fucking free sprayed, the febreeze on the bed. Did you see that when she finished making it like just to make sure it smells delicious for him? God. Let me tell you something. If I was with somebody, and they cheated on me make own damn bed. He the own damn bed or fucking hire someone to do it, like anything, but I wouldn't I wouldn't the which pillowcase wait. No. It's unbelievable. I can't I will never this is a conversation that I seriously will never get tired of having because anytime I think that I could I envisioned that video of him putting his face in between that waitresses tits in public. Forget about it that is how, you know, I don't care. You can say whatever you have no respect for your fucking mourners fat. It's one thing to like one time cheat on a one off in a random hotel room somewhere in fucking public on video camera motorboat shoe fuck. It just fuck it that is so God him. Anyway. Okay. So maliki. Asir. Are you still in love? And she says, I am in love, but I'm not gonna act like nothing's wrong but I'm not gonna force him. He needs to know. Look with this one stupid weekend did with rude relationship, and what that was when was it worth it, which really said earlier and Chloe says that Tristan is, you know, engaging, certain south help activities. He's going there apy, and she said, she's like he knows that I'm still trying, she's I don't have to come back to Cleveland. I don't have to do any of all this. I wouldn't do it. If I didn't feel anything. And so she was saying, like I do feel something I can't say what it is. But I do think it's something. The other interesting thing that she said was she said, if I felt like our relationship was affecting the energy, I have a true where I was constantly worried about where he is in what he's doing, and it was taking time away true. She was like I'd be out in two seconds. It's not worth it for me. Yeah. So to me, that's like a I don't know that goes back to the side of to just not care anymore will now we know how many how long does this filmed because now they're not together? Right. This was in October. So something must have happened from October to June to whatever these questions that we're asking obviously answered well, it's interesting because they did spend new years together. And then after new years is when it was remember like radio silent up until Jordan gates. You remember that video the him of her riding on him and him not paying attention? And everybody was, like, that's the video that kind of like the straw that broke the camel's back. I don't think that that's true. But I could imagine it just a fueling the fire. Let me ask you a question. If Tristan had cheated on khloe privately like let's say the second time he cheated on khloe wasn't with Jordan, and it was a private situation. And she had found out that there was no cameras there. Do you think she would have just gotten over it again? Do you like I'm asking juicing? The reason this was so bad for, and that she was so unwilling to forgive him is because she was publicly embarrassed, not because he did something wrong. Honestly. Okay. I think most people would disagree with my answer. I honestly don't think so. I think it would have the same reaction things the first time would have been as bad if it wasn't public. No well, I guess it couldn't have been better because she forgave him. No. But it could have. No, I don't think I don't think it would have been as bad. No. I think the he the public -ness of it was a huge aspect because that was the blatant disrespect the fucking video. And the fact that she was in labor. I mean, like not that there's any circumstance where I think that sheeting on. Isn't a Layton disrespect of, of them in your relationship. But I mean to do it that publicly in that in that way, it was just it's heartbreaking the way we talk about it. It's like we were cheated on it really. There was a period of time. I couldn't sleep. I know I lied. It really is. Like physically affected me is that a me of like you're like because if it's not like you're on a date with a guy. And he's like she's like, yeah. Like I have trust issues, and he's like why would happen in your this one time Chloe interest? And like we literally on their problems. You know what I mean? No one can tell me cheated on. I know what that feels like. So the next thing was just like trista, and it was a video Tristan kind of holding in hugging. True. And yes, he's with him her, and yes, he looks really Hotta the dad, because he is really hot and nothing else to add to that. Because my thoughts that change. I don't think he's a terrible father in, in terms of the way he acts with her, not in terms of how he treats her mother. I'm just saying. I don't think he's terrible vis physically with her. I think he's a knows how to be a dad in that regard. You know what I mean? Yeah. I mean, one could argue it's, it's easy to be a dad. What all you're doing is like picking up. You're doing the fun things. Right. It totally is. I don't think and also I you and I both have always we talked with his in private all the time. But like other issues of I think that you can't be being a good husband being a good father in certain ways are synonymous, because, how are you going to publicly disrespect the mother of your children and still consider yourself a good parent to that child? Yeah. You know, I do feel really strongly about that. And I think that there are there are circumstances where. Maybe that. You don't have the best relationship, but there's not having a good relationship, and, and doing something blatantly to disrespect that person, and I think it is acute because first of all, as a parent, you're, you're, and we talk about this a lot as well. You're setting your kid up for the type of person, they're going to be with, and regardless of who true at chooses to be with will whatever you're setting your kid up and giving them, an example of the way they should be treated, by the way, you're treating their their mother. So it's like as a parent, you're if you're setting them up for failure almost by doing that. It's like how can you consider yourself a good parent? Yeah. No, it's exactly. The last thing was Scott, his talentless shoot, which was behind the scenes of the queue interview, and nothing really to say here, other than it's nice to see Scott doing it doing it fully putting his heart into it. And looking really fucking sexy doing so great. Oh, yeah. Yeah. The only thing that would've made that scene better. If Sophie was one of the models. Look at there. It's really nice to see Scott do sling juicing flux. I feel like the amount of we've seen Scott take on so many projects over the past. And it's always something happens where it falls. Like it's just nice to like it was just one more layer of him being just like new purchase guy. I was like it was like a very nice little otas of Lucien kind of. Yes. And with that, ladies and gentlemen, we are concluding for the day. We'll be back tomorrow, or Cording today, it will be released tomorrow with Brad Gretzky for regular episode.
