Utah Governor Caves to the Left's Radical Gender Ideology

"I have warned for some time about Utah. I'm very worried about Utah. Utah is becoming the next Colorado. Good faithful people, largely LDS, who get co opted by social liberalism, fake utopian promises, and outright love of money and commerce. More than principles virtues and values. Utah is one of the fastest growing states in the country. There is something weird going on in Utah, where there are not just fake Republicans, but Republicans that seem to be eager to stab their constituents in the back and do everything they possibly can to try to pander to the needs wants and interests to the radical left. Utah has a growing tech corridor and sector. I've spent a lot of time in Utah. I grew up going to Utah every winter, going to deer valley, and Park City, it's some of the most beautiful places on the planet. It was great skiing until I stopped skiing because last time I went skiing, everyone said I had a great time and I woke up in an emergency room, so we stopped skiing. But you toss a great state, phenomenal people, but there's something rotten happening in Utah. So we know that men should not be able to compete in female sports. Why is this at all controversial? Will the governor of Utah this weirdo by the name of Spencer Cox never saw him in my life before? Said he plans to veto legislation past Friday that would prohibit men from competing against women and women's sports. In Utah. Now, some of my closest friends in the world are LDS. We have a lot of people that work for us on the show that are LDS Latter day Saints or Mormon. I can't imagine this is a popular position in the Mormon community,

"For calling. You have a question for us. Yeah, I'm out. Leander, and we are not do you just talking about that? We're one of those crazy ones that they're looking to move out to California. Okay, well, that u hauls are very cheap Going that way. Um, it's ah, Daughter's out there so in family, so it's out there and we're getting near retirement. So the question I've got right now is we're starting to work on our house. Here is the question. Um, we're I mean, we're not ready to move exactly now, but it could be flexible. Trying to figure out how long No one knows. But the crystal ball How long this strong market stays, But I knew that I would be on a violin Russia. Where is it? I got time to wait. Would be on an island somewhere, enjoying a Marguerite if I knew that answer in all the markets out there, But let me just preface. I'm gonna hand it over to the wonderful two agents here in the cabin. And I'm gonna would preface by saying Be careful what you do to the property right now because you may not make the return on it based upon what's happening, especially Lee Lander Cedar Park area, Kevin thoughts. Yeah. So the stats that we like to share those air those air reliable looking out, maybe six months and then we start to get into the really fuzzy space. I like how you say your crystal balls been broken for a long time, huh? Um, you know, we had had some conversations with some of the principles that some of the larger builders because, um, this is new construction has often act as a check. Price check against the rising values of resale homes, meaning if if a 2000 square foot house is being built in the hay farm across the street from you now the new home subdivision whenever they price those that is going to become this top in that the resale homes that it becomes your competition, But yeah, and it's gonna be, too if everything's the same. That cap is is being lifted. So this this scarcity this craziness has reached the new home market, and many builders are doing wait lists until they really some supply and we're hearing numbers in subdivisions of like 600, people wait lists for 42 lattes. Some builders are stopped taking contracts right now because they want to make sure that their infrastructure stays employed and busy over the course of the next two or three years, And they're conceptualizing that they could literally sell two years of supply in one month if they wanted to. So that's how under supplied we are on and I was. I was on the carpet conversation with some presidents of builders around town and they're literally they go. We could sell everything right now, but that we would have to shut our company's down into some aspect of it right. I can do that. They want to have a little long term and they also know if they're holding on to some of these lost. Guess what those lattes or appreciating to think from. From what we're hearing Aid. Here s O on the building's side in the noose of new new home products, capping prices for resales. We don't think that's gonna really be effective for two years. Maybe like if we're saying what's the timeline looked like on when when Mr Builder swoops in with tons of inventory. It's not gonna happen this year. It's not gonna happen next year. There's just not enough lots being created. So the ones that are selling are actually higher than they normally wouldn't that I was going to stay. It's like as as an agent going out to look for homes for these people and wanting to get on the waiting list. Those people that are on the waiting list. Have no idea what they could potentially be paying for this house homes are going up by 30 close to 30 grand for some of these builders of month to month or quarterly, and they're just saying is true and that they're saying that's what we think we're not. Actually we're saying it's going to be in that ballpark, Dave, There's a builder here in town. That has, like a waiting list of like 600 people for 40 launch right now. No, I mean I've been We've been out here 25 years and actually she on the council here only under for a while and helped create a lot of this demand. You know where things were going and it's you know. Yeah, I'm seeing that nets. Well, if you built it now, they're coming, Not much upgrade, So that's a lot of me. We're doing some cleaning up. And I guess that's part of the thing to how much upgrade should Ian Campbell to do. And if I'm not looking to do stuff because we're gonna go out? We're gonna be getting placed on California and I'm gonna do work on. Um, so the way I spend more time out there than here, or is it it doesn't you know, I guess that's it. How much work Thies value gains that we're seeing are coming from the land appreciating so you can If there's something wrong with your improvements, right? There's a hole in the wall than fixing the whole will probably get you more. More money back than not doing it. But if it's just stuff, then Yeah, if it's um you know, it's just going to the newer style that may should be. Shoot yourself in the foot. If you end up waiting a year to and then all the fads have changed again. Yeah, well, A lot of my buyers are walking into homes, offering whatever they can over list and then they're going in and getting it there literally gutting it. So don't waste your money on that. Yeah. Dave. Why, Buddy? We gotta take a break here. Thanks for calling and appreciate it. Dave Humbly. Andr was on the City Council, he said so he's he's to blame for all this out here.

"Mask 'cause you go from the front door to your table and then you take your mask off. And that's very fortunate and very comfortable. I mean our bars are actually open here. That not the case in every city. So it's just being aware that when you're gonna go inside you're going to be asked for a mass when you sit down to your table but you certainly are not expected to wear a mask when you're outside you know it's got enough wide open space so the that's how we've been doing you know all summer long. All all numbers are good because people have been really respectful awesome. Well let's look forward a little bit. There's several interesting projects in the area. Like the mayflower mountain resort. That i read about yesterday or day before. Got a new arts district. Pingree park city. Can you talk a little bit about these projects. And what the future looks like. Yes we definitely. Continue to grow the mayflower. It's actually that's looking too far ahead. i don't know. I don't know what the status of that resort is going to be and the majority of it is not in summit county which is park cities and but but a lot of like to say. They're building something in park city. Even it's not park city so so it's getting a lot of press but there isn't a lot of motion and their questions is whether they're going to connect to the deer valley resort that i've been mentioning and it's not clear if deer valley has not agreed to that at this moment and so i think mayflower flowers too far out to be talking about the arts and the arts and culture district is got book ends on one end. Is the sundance institute which presents the film festival but also does of stuff all year long and on the other end the kimball arts festival which i mentioned earlier that happens in august and the kimbell arts is open all year long. So there's sort of the book ends of the our district. I don't think we're gonna see the district until probably twenty twenty three so it's also our out the the more Relevant projects would be the new hotels that have just opened very family friendly so one is called the hotel pad which just opening november and. that's why o. T. e. l. phd. If the i pat in the world but there there are other yo tell hotels and they'll be more hotel coming than the ac by marianne just opened as well and then this december pantry our city will be opening in canyons village And pendry is connected to a luxury Family orientated company call on montage international and they have brands montage resort. And then they have hendry's and this'll be the first tenri here in utah and then it'll be open in december so those are more of the projects that are just keeping us going. It's sort nice in the middle of kobe that we continue to develop and move forward with new projects especially ones that are good for family. I do think park city park city can be a great couple place. Park city can be a great place for meeting. But it's also awesome for family so it's pretty multidimensional and you need different lodging for all those kinds of things to say. I'm actually on the live. Webcam on historic mainstream mainstream. now and. yeah what. A beautiful really beautiful. So i i just want to come and be a local for a while but what are some local information that visitors need to know about farsi. Well one of the first things be surprised that a lot of people have a home here but they don't live here fulltime so it's a little bit different from a community where you would see the same family every day or the same people at the margaret. It's got a lot of people coming and going but it is a small town. It just happens to be. I think when someone visit they say. I really want a little piece of mess. And so they take it and then they come and visit on peak periods which would be like president's weak. That's kind of become a national american ski. Tradition is being on president's weak but that's one of the reasons that people decide to become a local. They wanna make sure that they've got their home when that peak or president's weak or or like christmas looks like a postcard and part city. And i can see that i wanna make sure that you have your you have your perfect christmas setting for your family. So that's why people do become local or they buy a condo and then they are guaranteed that there for them on the peak periods. But i mean we do have a school system. that's amazing. It is a real talent. Not just a postcard. Yeah yeah just looks like. I would say that sundance does not family friendly time. Most of the movies that are being premiered are pretty intense. Though it's not the stuff that you normally would bring your kids supercup but you'll see a lot of people from l. a. In new york even though this year was virtual we still had a lot of people from la and new york that just got used to coming out and spending time with us during. It's always the end of january. And then i think the summertime is really when you see families that thought like i'm buying in park city because of winter but once they got there they realize it's a it's an amazing summer to the nation as well and especially because of the weather. There's virtually no humidity in park city. And so we don't have bugs and you have picnics outdoors on mir blankets. And you can do that there. So we see a lot of texans coming up. We see a lot of people from the south east coming out. You know it's. It's just a very surprising. Like i really thought this was a winter town and it turns out that it's actually an all year round town in families. Turn out. they they use their. You know their places more than they realized they were going to. It's a beautiful place for sure for more information on vacation and in park city good visit park city dot com or consult your travel agent. Dan thanks so much for being on the show with us. We appreciate your time. Thank you my pleasure. Nice to speak with you. Thank you to then. That was awesome park city. Such a beautiful place. It's definitely on my list of places to go. I want my Ten-year-old i wanted to snowboard the kid is he's got more th- lettuces than his pinky than i do monte body. Can i give you some advice really. Yes i years ago. Got a video game and it was all in snowboarding thing. And i just got in my head. I'm going snowboarding and got in a friend of mine was there and he says you need to take lessons man. You do the beginner lessons right now. I got this. I was infuriated within two hours. And i was like four low of humanity. Anybody lists if you'd gone snowboard. Take the lessons. Oh my gosh. Take the lesson okay. I'm not sure up you as easy. I'm not trying to one up you but how about you have. You skied the only time. That i've gone skiing was at a place i guess it was. I'm not sure exactly where where it is. It somewhere maybe north carolina. It's a smaller place. But so i'd never fan. I rented my skis. But on my skis. I managed to get myself to the ski lift. Okay not not understanding that. There was a play second. There was a bunny slope. Where i could go to To you know. Take those lessons that you're that you're mentioning. I get on the ski lift. I go to the top of this mountain. And i don't i don't know what black diamond means like. I've never been seen before right. Of course i could have asked questions. I didn't get on the bench. You didn't know i did night. I get on top of about. And i go i. You know. i'm. I'm a big guy. As i've mentioned before gravity has a pretty big hold on me so i'm barreling down this mountain. I start to fall. One ski shoots out in front of me and the other one's shoots out into the. There's like a forest on one side. It went into the forest. The i kid you not to went straight into a lake a lake guess. It was more of a palm guard. It's probably more of a pipe but lost both of my skis ahead to go back to wear. Read it and tell them. I lost both my skis not to mention tumbled for about i felt like a mile. Whatever that was my healthily. Yeah that was my only experience. Yeah i was thinking too bad that you actually lost the skis. Because it stayed in the skis you would have set the world record for snow. Snow skiing and immediately water skiing. Same run. yeah. That would have been incredible. Don't kid yourself. that's not easy to do. So both water ski and snow ski in the same trip. So anybody listening to what you take the lessons take the lessons yeah you. It didn't matter how athletic you are. Take the lessons absolutely so anyway. Park city sounds amazing. So definitely check that out. If wanna plan a trip to park city let me know.

And so they take it and then they come and visit on peak periods which would be like president's weak. That's kind of become a national american ski. Tradition is being on president's weak but that's one of the reasons that people decide to become a local. They wanna make sure that they've got their home when that peak or president's weak or or like christmas looks like a postcard and part city. And i can see that i wanna make sure that you have your you have your perfect christmas setting for your family. So that's why people do become local or they buy a condo and then they are guaranteed that there for them on the peak periods. But i mean we do have a school system. that's amazing. It is a real talent. Not just a postcard. Yeah yeah just looks like. I would say that sundance does not family friendly time. Most of the movies that are being premiered are pretty intense. Though it's not the stuff that you normally would bring your kids supercup but you'll see a lot of people from l. a. In new york even though this year was virtual we still had a lot of people from la and new york that just got used to coming out and spending time with us during. It's always the end of january. And then i think the summertime is really when you see families that thought like i'm buying in park city because of winter but once they got there they realize it's a it's an amazing summer to the nation as well and especially because of the weather. There's virtually no humidity in park city. And so we don't have bugs and you have picnics outdoors on mir blankets. And you can do that there. So we see a lot of texans coming up. We see a lot of people from the south east coming out. You know it's. It's just a very surprising. Like i really thought this was a winter town and it turns out that it's actually an all year round town in families. Turn out. they they use their. You know their places more than they realized they were going to. It's a beautiful place for sure for more information on vacation and in park city good visit park city dot com or consult your travel agent. Dan thanks so much for being on the show with us.

"And people were willing to do that when they were inside the building and and then there was plenty to do outside so we have four hundred miles of trails for hiking and biking and it and we also have a city. It's an e bike system where you can rent buy from basically from yeah from city stations. We also have a free transit system throughout the city. So it's really great for people who want to get outside on a hike by and then as i mentioned even do things like fly fishing or shooting horseback riding. You know we really are cowboy country out here so and yet and yet. It's twenty five minutes of the international airport so it's a it's a pretty idyllic setup definitely well you know understanding times we're living in the current club in restriction placed. A visitor should know about ahead of time. So as i mentioned we do have a mandatory mask mandate when you go inside buildings. However i'm happy to say that you know are indoor dining is open so people are able to come in you. Wear your mask 'cause you go from the front door to your table and then you take your mask off. And that's very fortunate and very comfortable. I mean our bars are actually open here. That not the case in every city. So it's just being aware that when you're gonna go inside you're going to be asked for a mass when you sit down to your table but you certainly are not expected to wear a mask when you're outside you know it's got enough wide open space so the that's how we've been doing you know all summer long. All all numbers are good because people have been really respectful awesome. Well let's look forward a little bit. There's several interesting projects in the area. Like the mayflower mountain resort. That i read about yesterday or day before. Got a new arts district. Pingree park city. Can you talk a little bit about these projects. And what the future looks like. Yes we definitely. Continue to grow the mayflower. It's actually that's looking too far ahead. i don't know. I don't know what the status of that resort is going to be and the majority of it is not in summit county which is park cities and but but a lot of like to say. They're building something in park city. Even it's not park city so so it's getting a lot of press but there isn't a lot of motion and their questions is whether they're going to connect to the deer valley resort that i've been mentioning and it's not clear if deer valley has not agreed to that at this moment and so i think mayflower flowers too far out to be talking about the arts and the arts and culture district is got book ends on one end. Is the sundance institute which presents the film festival but also does of stuff all year long and on the other end the kimball arts festival which i mentioned earlier that happens in august and the kimbell arts is open all year long. So there's sort of the book ends of the our district. I don't think we're gonna see the district until probably twenty twenty three so it's also our out the the more Relevant projects would be the new hotels that have just opened very family friendly so one is called the hotel pad which just opening november and. that's why o. T. e. l. phd. If the i pat in the world but there there are other yo tell hotels and they'll be more hotel coming than the ac by marianne just opened as well and then this december pantry our city will be opening in canyons village And pendry is connected to a luxury Family orientated company call on montage international and they have brands montage resort. And then they have hendry's and this'll be the first tenri here in utah and then it'll be open in december so those are more of the projects that are just keeping us going. It's sort nice in the middle of kobe that we continue to develop and move forward with new projects especially ones that are good for family. I do think park city park city can be a great couple place. Park city can be a great place for meeting. But it's also awesome for family so it's pretty multidimensional and you need different lodging for all those kinds of things to say. I'm actually on the live. Webcam on historic mainstream mainstream. now and. yeah what. A beautiful really beautiful. So i i just want to come and be a local for a while but what are some local information that visitors need to know about farsi. Well one of the first things be surprised that a lot of people have a home here but they don't live here fulltime so it's a little bit different from a community where you would see the same family every day or the same people at the margaret. It's got a lot of people coming and going but it is a small town. It just happens to be. I think when someone visit they say. I really want a little piece of mess.

"I mentioned because they're on park city mountain so dan. I'm just gonna go until you front robin. I always have to find out about the food scene's everywhere we talk about so we need. We need to break down on those restaurants that have to be on. Every families must visit list first of all once. The ski day is over you transition to something. They call aupres ski. Which is a french word for. After ski and operates the usually starts with more and there are s'mores setup throughout the town for families. It's sort of like that intermediate before your dinner. But you're hungry. Because you've been seeing or snowboarding day sledding. They need a little bit of nourishment. And the moore's the marshmallow. Graham cracker hershey's chocolates combination is sort of a park city staples and then a lot of families go to main street. We typically one historic street. And you know you see that in cities like nashville and you know where it's just everywhere that's where the social scene is blocked long three blocks long and it was built in eighteen eighty as a silver mining streets. This this was for mining town so the same buildings that were there in. Eighteen eighty are now restaurants and we have an anti chain ordinance so the restaurants that you're getting on main street you haven't seen anywhere else. They wouldn't allow. yeah even something like a starbucks. Coffee wouldn't be found on our main street. You can find them in the outskirts of town if you really need the starbucks brands. But we've caught like java cow. Java cow is a local ice cream shop copies and it's on our main street. All the restaurants will be individual restaurants. There's a company called the bill white restaurant group and he has won. Italian restaurant called grappa. A south western called. I oh Asian fusion called wassot and. They've got a sushi restaurant and then the windy ridge bakery and so bill Basically you've got a taste for something bill. Got a restaurant for you But they really really great restaurants on the main street and our most famous restaurants is called river horse. And it's right in the middle of the main street but they've also recently opened market called provision by rivers. And you can go in with your family. And you can stock up on things like in their market and they've got fresh food at the deli their provision by river horse. So it's a little more casual way to get the family in and out and one of my favorite things they do is a team. Let's i don't know if you've had that yes. The french quebec. Yeah so they have a daily routine. So you've got surprise and your gravy and whatever. Their daily hopping is. I will say that the food in park city is hardy. It's meant for mountain activity recreation activity not one of these places where the food a look like. Maybe you've seen in california. Little pretty presented tiny bite. That's just not gonna cut it in park city got asking. Yeah you absolutely do. And deer valley resort for not only if famous for being ski only resort. But it's famous for being the best food in any ski mountain and Because of their focus on the family and the quality of the food deer valley chile is kind of considered staple they have about five restaurants. That are great for the family and right now this year. Were sort of specializing in grab and go because people don't necessarily want to be in giant the hall with a lot of people so they've adjusted it but we think more standard ski season but like this spring. If you come out you can go to any of the year valley's outlet. Then you'll just find their food in a more grab and go format so we know that sundance is obviously synonymous with park city. It it actually should be ending around the time right in that normally when it is and so this is happening today. This year was a virtual situation. I know that that has the hurt around there. But what what are some of the family friendly events festivals that are in the area. So i would have to be very honest that festivals and gatherings are not given. It's not a given right for this year. I'm when we just don't we just don't know when it's going to be comfortable and people see events as something to be careful about right so in a normal year. The deer valley music festival which is held on the ski mountain. But it's all the snow is gone so you'll have the utah symphony and you sit down blankets and they'll do like the music of walt disney. You know just just beautiful under the stars. But i honestly don't know if they're gonna do it then still in and we just were still holding our breath for to see what's going to happen summer. We have an arts festival. Kim arts festival is usually the first weekend of august. It's the great. They shut down the main street. And it's all people displaying art from every walk of life but they canceled it last year. And i thought that was a good idea right this year. We think that they're going to do something on. Sundays called the parks philly market. And it's sort of like you've seen a lot of towns that have their own sort of farmers market but our part silly market also has craft and music and there's question about whether smart to do this silly market this summer but if they decide to do it. It'll be on sundays throughout the summer. All the way through labor day and then there's going to be something called her city songwriters festival and they're gonna hold it even if it's at a Reduced capacity and that's going to be the night the ninth through the twelfth of september it started started with something called nashville unplugged. Okay where country music come out to park city and just talk the process of songwriting. So if you go online. I think that they are not. They are presenting themselves as we're moving forward no matter what size it's going to be. We're going to do it. And that's the night of the twelfth of september so that would be right in the middle of our fall foliage season and. I think that would be a fantastic thing to do the other thing. I loved to do out here fishing and we ended families can do it together. If we've got amazing guides and we've got amazing rivers that are right outside the pound limit and you just wade into the river and catch these beautiful fish and and it can be done twelve months a year. But that's something that we learned. Last summer was great for social distancing. Yeah great for small groups and so we're excited to be. We know that that'll be happening this summer as well. But when it comes to outdoor activities you you guys have just about anything you can possibly imagine so social distancing.

"But honestly if your family loves the outdoors this is just an overall amazing location so joining us today to talk about park city is dan howard dance director of communications for the park city chamber of commerce and convention and visitors. Bureau dan to the show. Thank you so dan. What makes park city and family travel destination. A lot of people love the mountain but a lot of mountains are hard to get to and so the family is usually used to that phrase. Are we there yet. Are we there yet. The nice thing about park city is that when they asked that the answer is yes. We're there because it's it is a mountain that it twenty five minutes from the international airport at salt lake city. Wow it's so easy to get to if you rent a car at the salt lake airport which happens to be. The newest airport in the country just opened on september fifteen but you could also just shuttle with the family. You really need a car once you get to the mountain but some people like to have it as a security blanket But that is the beginning as to how convenient it is to get to park city from anywhere and then once they get there how much there is to do in the mountain town. And it really. It's almost like explore cities in one because the four seasons that are here are rarely from each other. So people really decide you know. I'm coming there for winters or oncoming there for summertime to escape the humidity or i'm coming there for fall foliage. It really is a different city for various different need. So that's a really nice thing. Well so we know. Park city is known for snow skiing for families. That may wanna try skiing for the first time. I've gone one time in my entire life and it was ages ago. What goes into a ski vacation. Bertha there's two parts to it one is what we call the on mountain skiing and then there's the off mountain winter recreation. So if you don't want to be one of those. Like i'm gonna go skiing downhill or i don't love feed on my skis or snowboards right. There's still plenty there. Twenty of off mountain winter act v as well but if you think you wanna try skiing. Heart city is a really great place to learn because our terrain is not what known as like the double black diamonds terrain. There are four different colors that have to do with how steep things are and there's the green and the blue and the black and the double black and park city has a lot of greens and blues and a lot of amazing instructors. So and by the way that's not just for children like uc adult in school. That would be me and it's perfectly fine. Yeah and and you'll see the little one plight flying past few it'll be just fine. It's just fine no worries but is a great place because we've got good ski instructors and we got the terrain that's not so intimidating. A lot of places are all about the double black diamond. And that's really not what people seek out park city though it can be found if you're looking for it. So what are some of the other popular attractions in the area. We we've mentioned the woodward park city bobsled experience at the former olympic part. Those look amazing. Can you speak to those two places specifically. Oh absolutely so. We hosted the olympics in two thousand and two where the last win for defamation in the united states to have hosted the olympics and we're bidding again but they left the stuff so that for example. The bob sled track that was used in. The game is available for people to you know. Sign up for bobsled experience if you have to register for it. It costs money. But you're right on the same track and if not as scary as it looks on tv. It's not even like a roller. Not even like a roller coaster. It's a very smooth experience and very exciting experience and in the winter. It's on ice and actually it's even available in the summertime. They just put the bobsled on wheels but they use the same track. So there's the bob sled area snowmobiling. There is dog sledding. There is sleigh rides ice skating and woodward is amazing because it's also for not only winter sports but summer sports to learn how to going snowboard. Learn how to go on a skateboard. Learn how to get on a bicycle do those flips and be trained. And then you've got these foam tips for the kids who were learning how to were those skateboards our bikes or whatever. They want to do what is called an accident forth park and it opened three hundred sixty five days a year so it's not just a winter activity as well and it just opened a year ago. So it's really knew and kids are are loving it. The parents can sit there and watch their kids. Get training at the park or the kids are. The adults can sign up for their own trainer. So are there further. Emt's on on site just for old people like me who think they're still young or i don't think we'd need emt but we definitely we take you really slow. You know you grow. You grow with your tricks easier each time you just get a little bit more confident a little bit more comfortable than talking to you take you from zero to one hundred and five minutes with so many things. The mind is willing the older you get the body not not always the case a true so lodging in park city it runs the spectrum from vacation home reynolds. The camping hotels to resort. You guys have a mix of everything. Can you mentioned some of the more family friendly places stay. Sure and camping isn't actually one of our strength in park city. I would say that the new park resort is a great family friendly destination located at the entrance the gateway to park city from salt lake city. We just opened a new. Ac by marianne which is actually a family friendly but also a little bit european style lodge and then the next place up toward the main street is called canyons village. And there's a beautiful resort the west gate that they're in canyons as well as the waldorf-astoria which is a spectacular property and can be very family friendly depending on what your family is all about. But we also have A high centric and hyatt place that are near the canyons village. And you go into the main sort of downtown old town main street area and we've got a doubletree there and we've got another marietta and we've got a share it and i would say all of those are very family. Friendly various a independent company called the stein eriksen lodge and their collection and may have a property called the chateau and that's also a great for families who are doing skiing. That located on deer valley resort. We have to ski mountains in our town. Deer valley resort in park city and vir valley is a ski only resort. So there's no snowboarding allowed for family knows that they're going to st only then deer valley might be a good place for him and then the chateau is on your valley. If they know they're going to snowboard they should maybe head more for the canyons resort village and all those properties.

"Let's round it out at 20 so It's hard to believe even though it could happen. It's hard to believe that's going to happen. 20 quarterbacks changing teams, but I really, really enjoyed his conversation. He said. He counted the various teams and surprised himself because he came up with 20. So that would be the extreme. But certainly you've got teams all around the NFL, not to mention the fans who are poised now to see that Play out this well, great job helping us set up a bunch of these interviews and I agree with you. We had a variety of voices, some really interesting perspectives from guys who played the game Hall of Famer and Jack Youngblood, who has not forgotten about guys that he played with and guys that he played against in his work with the Gridiron Greats Assistance Fund and Mike Ditka. We also talked to Lawrence Guy, the Patriots and he's the only Patriot I've talked to this season, and he was willing to dive into the Belichick versus Brady question. He was also willing to take you inside the Patriots locker room and what it's been like in a season in which they lost. They got hammered by San Francisco when he said in the wake of that they had a team meeting and decided they were not going to throw in the towel. They were gonna use this. Difficult season to be prepared and be ready for next year. Now he's a free agent, but he would like to stay in New England. You mentioned I Taylor the way that he described Tom Brady gunning for 1/7 Super Bowl ring, which he calls a week and so Brady would be filling up a full week full of rings, whereas Patrick Holmes to be working on Monday. That was really cool, loved Ashley Caldwell, who we just had on on this edition of the show. Olympian who right now is in Park City, Utah, competing in the first qualifier. She's an aerial skier. She's been to three Olympic Games already, and she's starting the qualification process for 22 in Beijing, Man she is awesome and to have her as well as Amy Trask on national women and girls in Sports Day. Or, You know it was this week. That was pretty cool and Roger Goodell mentioned to the diversity in the NFL, and he agrees that there needs to be more when it comes to head coaches. But he points around the league at the coordinators, and you've got coordinators of all colors. You also have female coaches, full time female coaches. And so he wanted people to remember. Yes, the head coaching ranks still need more diversity. But that's not the only place that you should count the diversity and look at work. Change is being made. By the way. If you're wondering about returning to normal, he doesn't have an answer for that. Don't know when normal is gonna occur again, and I don't know if normal ever will again. I don't know if anybody here can do that. I know this. We have learned to operate in a very difficult environment. We have found solutions and we'll do it again. Like the optimism and the fact that he and a Morris Smith, two of the most powerful men in sports, are collaborating and working together. But on that note, we may have uncertainty about the future. But we know the Super Bowl is taking place on Sunday on time, the date it was originally scheduled. Jeffrey on Facebook, love listening to you in the A. M. Hope you have a great weekend. Enjoy the game. I mean, I feel the same way about you, Jeffrey and about Our listeners. Thanks for being part of this Super Bowl blitz the last three days, not quite like being on site but still worth it to go through all of the extra trouble. The extra hours.

Virtual 2021 Sundance Film Festival opens on a screen very near you

"City, Utah. And because of the pandemic, thousands of film lovers will go to premieres, panels and parties, mostly online. NPR's Mandali Del Barco has this preview. This year's Sundance opens with the premier of the documentary, Summer of Soul or when the Revolution could not be televised. Director Amir Thompson, known as the Musician. Quest, Love presents footage of the 1969 Harlem cultural Festival that has never been seen since. Pressure's lower. Take My hand was Dr King's favorite zone and Sistema Hey, you're Jackson was my idol. She was my hero. I love this. So much listening to singer Mavis Staples praising my Hayley and Jackson is just one highlight of the film. In a normal year. There'd be long lines of festivalgoers standing in the snow to get into theaters to watch. This year films will be screened virtually through especially built online platform, says the festival's new director, Tabatha Jackson. The global pandemic hit And we realized that we had to re imagine everything. Jackson says her team wanted to create a wafer, filmgoers and filmmakers to gather will be able to chat with each other in virtual waiting rooms. Then watch film premieres together before asking questions of the casts and crews, and that's to preserve the energy and the excitement on the buzz and the conversation. In that moment, as we are confined in our Safe spaces. This is an opportunity to go out into the world and be taken around the world by some of these films as an international festival dedicated to independent filmmaking, the Sundance Community prides itself on being a bit scrappy. We're excited. I think this feels like a grand experiment, so people who are they couldn't afford it or couldn't make the journey. Couldn't navigate the icy streets of Park City can now come to Sundance. We're bringing Sundance to them. This year, Half the films at Sundance were directed by people of color as well as by women. Many were shot or finished during the pandemic lockdown. There's even one titled In the same breath about how covert 19 began in Wuhan, China. Many of the doctors said these hospitals must have known this new virus was spreading between people, but they were afraid to say so for fear of punishment from the government. Among the feature films to watch for is Koda, about a hearing girl whose family is deaf, also sons of monarchs, about a Mexican biologist and flee and animated film about an Afghan refugee. Other highlights included documentary about choreographer Alvin Ailey and another about the life and career of actress Rita Moreno. Life can be pressing America what was different about Anita and with side stories that she was a girl who respected herself. Who had a certain amount of dignity. Actually, she became my role model. The festival will also include online panels, meetups concerts and parties, many of them free. There will be virtual spaces for black and Latin. Next creators, and Jackson says festival goers can participate in the new frontier program using Webcams or virtual reality headsets from home, you Congar! Oh, in as an avatar, you can wonder around this incredible space garden. Go to parties, which are where people are going to gather to talk about films. We felt a cinema house in this virtual environment, and there's an extraordinary gallery off new work. The reason I'm so excited about it is because it really is an unusual space in which we can still come together and socialize, and it doesn't feel anything like Zoom. Sundance is also partner with art House cinemas around the country to present some in person events, including at drive in theaters. Manda Little Barco. NPR news.

Assemblymember Yuh-Line Niou (with Rock the Boat)

"My name is Yulia new. I'm actually the Assembly member representing Lower Manhattan, which actually encompasses some very thing statue of Liberty Wall Street financial, district Battery Park City salary seep, or and of course, my favorite, which is like the lower east side Chinatown area, which I think everybody thinks. As new. York. So yeah. Proud of my district. Yeah. Well, I'm very proud of your district too because I live their. So you know, we always like to start off the podcast with going back in time and understanding who our guests are when they're little. So what was little you lean like parents brought me to the states when only six months old mom and dad were actually really amazing and brave and they were in their late twenties and they decided to immigrate to the United States with a thousand dollars in their pockets and sixty cases the baby can have to you know. On my dad decided that he was going to go to Moscow Idaho. Doing school at the University of Hide Ho in Moscow was willing to actually give my data package that would be able to bring over his young family. So yeah was able to get a dormitory for families that would allow him to be able to keep our family together, and so that's the decision that he made and I'm really glad that I wasn't just like left behind somewhere but I would only six months old when we came and then we moved around a lot to agent immigrant family was really in pursuit of my fathers education, my nurse, and so she was amazing and just kind of picked up and started up wherever my dad needed her to and yeah, that's like the strength of. This amazing woman that I call mom yeah I see. So many parallels between might Ernie in your journey my dad is the same. He got a scholarship at the University of Toledo Ohio similar to you my family and I have moved around to seven different states, and so I was looking at your bio and I notice that you lived in Idaho and Texas and. All these different states where there are very few Asians in those states. Like for you when we moved to Oregon I still remember just. Having, a small Asian American community around us because we were in a small town called Beaverton Oregon and there's a lot of actually Asian Americans there what you know like within the school I was obviously Asian kid and I just was. Very, lonely I got bullied a lot in school and when I was in. Elementary School on Texas I. still remember she used to bully me a lot like she pulled me into the CO closet and have all of my other classmates take turns spitting on me. There was a time when she likes to remind lunchbox bathroom and I was too afraid to. There, but she set the trash can on fire, lock me in, and then the sprinklers went off and John My. Gosh appeal right. That was whole thing. I didn't catch on fire but she ran out. Locked the door and I was so afraid that I actually paid by solve in a bathroom. Into things that were going on in Texas all the time and totally acceptable and I still remember how it was totally okay for somebody to just WANNA be up because. I actually read home to my mom and I was crying and telling her I had no friends and the she was so sad for me and I remember little calmer face because I kept saying like why I was blaming her I was like, why did you have to make me Chinese like why? Make Asian, and mom. So remember that day distinctly 'cause I was so angry at her way that. Now I can talk about a lot easier, but I just don't remember like her shock her her and like her inability to do anything to protect me right and. There was nothing that of course you could do and I. Still Remember her was to study harder because you know everybody likes people with good grades. The most Asian answer. I guess at what point were you able to sort of embrace Eurasian identity when I can't I didn't understand a lot of my parents are doing it like I understand why my dad you know put a break in the toilet or like. It was like, wow, people must. Like do weird things. But actually when was like an Enviro and he was making a low flow toilet, you know he was doing all kinds of stuff that was interesting like garden and I was like Oh. My Gosh like please stop gardening. Poor. Poor but I don't look like that. I remember being like very scared in a shame ole time and then when I started to see how that was so wrong and where my Internalizing all this stuff. Was it really kind of broke one of the things I remember the most was watching my mom study. And I remember crying a little bit because she studied and worked so hard all the time. She. Was a nurse for most of my life. She was just. Nurse. All the time and. She worked night shifts and she was also studying because I like all of her certificates and everything had to be redone he was very experienced in very qualified nursing. Taiwan. To recertify everything and. She start working towards for Masters to be able to do administration and things like that and so as I still remember she was pregnant with my brother and she was studying an issue going to work and doing all these things I just remember thinking like, wow like. I'm home is amazing.

Who Will Win The Latino Vote

"The thick. This is a podcast about politics race and culture in the elections and all that kind of stuff from. Perspective I might Hosa. Joining us from Park City Utah. Nice does a first time. We've ever had somebody from Park City. UTAH. Is Mi Mike Madrid. He's CO founder of a little organization called. Thank. The Lincoln Project and he's a part, the public relations firm grassroots lab. Hey, Mike. Welcome to the show. So glad to finally be with you guys have been fan for a long time to be with you. Awesome. great-great-great joining us from New York City Lee healed by the she ceo and Co founder of the big data analytics firm seen plus and culture. Intel. Welcome. Really thank you so much. Super excited to be here with your friend Yes okay. So believe it or not It's only one week. Oh. My God one week to the election according to analysis by the more than fifty eight million people have already cast their ballots surpassing all male in early votes cast in the twenty sixteen election. A number of states Georgia and Texas have seen historic early voting turnout. I mean Georgia and Texas, and the both of you Mike in Lilly you've been following the data and the trends when it comes to support for either candidate so we're going to dig into yes the Latino and Latina vote and we've talked about how well they're thirty two million projected eligible Latino voters in this cycle. So that is the second largest voting. Indian tire United States it's likely that this election is going to come down to a handful of key states including Florida surprise and we know right I mean what happens with Florida is going to be determined by Latino and Latina voters correct three point one million eligible voters according to Pew. Research Center there are a number of motivators this time around from the coronavirus pandemic which has really taken a toll on dinos and Latina's to yes the Supreme Court nomination of Amy Coney Barrett and as a disclaimer. So we are recording on Monday afternoon and the final confirmation vote of Barrett is expected to take place on Monday night just saying democracy question Mark Mike, what are you seeing about this Latino vote? And give us your sense like we're all on pins and needles. What's your top line? Is it going to be able to swing these key swing voter states towards Biden Or, will it be towards trump So let's talk about three states specifically and I'll give you kind of what we're looking out where we're trying to move numbers, and maybe some of the irony of the whole situation. There are, of course, a lot of voters now in states like Pennsylvania North Carolina but just mathematically where the communities really going to be determinative, it's going to be flooded out like you mentioned taxes in Arizona. Let me start with Florida because it is such Florida. Florida right Kinda got a look. We all know what that means and what it doesn't mean. Yeah. So trump's spat very early on Miami Dade was one of the counties that he spent most heavily in through the summer. He was up really big columbine the socialist trying to consolidate the Cuban vote multi generational, right? We all know that are older Cuban brothers and sisters have this real anticommunist sentiment anti-castro but the younger you get your that tends to Wayne and future generations and. Most of that was splitting off most Cubans under forty are actually Democrats as a plurality. So the Republican source kind of weight off, but the socialism stuff was working right can't wasn't working overwhelmingly, but it was working enough. Yes. Mike is that because maybe it was been his winnings, there are some of that's what I'm saying. Yeah absolutely. There's this kind of socialist is like the Big Buzzword big it's a big thing with these voter segments but. We gotTA KEEP IT in perspective. It's not like he was overwhelming. It was over performing with where you know trump wasn't twenty-six. They were moving votes early we all know Latinos. Late deciders we're hearing some of this stuff going y'all kit account makes sense. Yeah but look, this is largely corrected already we went in his Lincoln Project I'm not saying we went in alone we went in with a number of Latino organizations we went with North repack Chuck Rochelle Rip Bernie's group. We did you know me me Neither do I ask when it is a coalition and said, Hey, look you guys take the portrait. Daniels. You guys take the Central Americans the few Donald's out of there in Florida we're going to go in after the Cuba to the Venezuelan. We'll go hardcore after after the right you're going after the mother lode, you're like we're taking the colonial. Exactly, right you're doing Lincoln project style. We went with some really hard hitting ads gonNA peel off this vote. So you have seen the numbers come back to Earth a little bit I'm not going to suggest that there isn't a little bit more trump genus than we would like we get to kind of wise that's happening but one of the really Florida things about Florida this year is that trump the republican is over performing with Latinos. Enough to put this in title contention that we would like right and ironically, Biden is picking up more of a Republican sixty five and. Older senior citizen vote, which is a Republican base vote than his historical. So they're each eating into each other's constituencies and the question I think yeah. For flooded is going to be who holds onto each other's constituency the longest to push him over the line.

Martin Senn (Davinci Virtual) - Creating an Airbnb for offices

"Martin. Welcome to the PODCAST oil. Good afternoon. Alex how are you doing today? I'm great I'm in La Urine Salt Lake. You're the COO. Of DAVINCI virtual super cool technology company kind of changing the way people work. But we'll get into all of that here shortly. Love to hear about who? You are how you got what you do now you know. You're you're an entrepreneur. Now were you were. You always an entrepreneur. Like how'd you get to this place in life? I mean my later fifties now. So it's been quite a quite a stretch but Today out of my office window. I'm looking at some snow covered peaks and Here in Utah but quite frankly that has a lot to do with my upbringing as well. I was born to Swiss parents in California. No snow covered peaks there but When I was about two years old we move back to Europe to Switzerland and spent my entire childhood and education in the tiny country of Switzerland. I grew up in a cow. Tom Literally six hundred and fifty people living their cows. Going up down the mountain every morning and night But then I Finished my studies at the University of Iraq and At the end of my program We actually had an opportunity to Work anywhere in the world For Global Business Program. Get additional credits. As I was a dual citizen with the United States I was able very easily to come back here and actually complete. My era ended up in Los Angeles where you are right now. Alex and I spent one year outside of Marina del Rey with a large travel wholesale company. thought I will be here for about a year. Go back to Switzerland do but good Swiss do which is pick a career for life work till they're sixty five get the Golden Watch and enjoy obviously. Didn't turn out that way I grew quite fond of the American way of life. But also the American dream and the American opportunity as I Finished my year in a had an opportunity to grow to work for two more years with a travel wholesale group that had offices in Colorado Hawaii in a couple of other areas I worked with him for the next couple years and started building call centers and call centre software for them. I really enjoy to that particular line of work but In in the early nineties we had an opportunity to acquire a competitor here in park city. Utah and At that point chose to take that position and moved here I thought it was going to be here for another year or two. Obviously now. It's been almost thirty so Things have worked out differently but You know I found you and I think I found my place not just From a personal perspective but also from a fresh perspective. Marin it's a it's a cool story kind of how you've go these different places and you say oh. I'll try this out there for a year and then you kind of just really kind of your very much open to you. Know seeing if you like it if you don't like it what's good about. It was bad about it and that's so unique I think. Can you hear from a country in Europe? Far Far Away experimenting. What you like what you don't like. What do you think is inside of you that you know allows you to just have like such an open? Mind as you're as you're going through this well a felt like part of the reason why I chose to leave Switzerland in the first place and goalwards internationally. Right was a felt. Probably confined wanted to expand my horizons. I wanted to see more of the world but also learn more in the business world and I think that's what drove me Kind of to become my guests a little bit of a traveling workman anyhow in the first place. I think the second piece of it is you know you find yourself Still without normally family responsibilities or large responsibilities try out different lines of work may be starting experimenting with certain things and I think one of the big differences here in the states whereas Switzerland this entrepreneurism and small businesses. Very much alive right. It's very much driven. There's literally millions of companies Back home things are big more traditional of ignore established and quite frankly small businesses still outside of the macro economist may be still Something that's not that much. Never did I really enjoyed it. Obviously that's why I'm here and You know I migrated from the travel industry down into coming mysteries worked extra for a very large telecom group here in Salt Lake City a for almost a decade and exited nine hundred ninety nine Because I was frustrated with The Red Tape. Maybe the lack of ability to affect change technology etc. And I wanted to regroup at that. Point was actually quite a pivotal day in in my professional career so I went back out on my own. I started my own consulting firm and actually that's how my business partner and Bill Nick in two thousand five and it was kind of almost an odyssey and a match of talent and Bishen. And that's when I truly felt we had something special and I wanted to get involved with that. Yeah it's it's interesting. How you talk about kind of your upbringing of thinking about you're always go work for a big company need. Just do that for your entire life. Get the gold watch retire but then it's what the cool part of your journey is is that you had an this open mindset to go see experiment see what. Martin was really put on this earth to do and you have this entrepreneurial spirit inside of you and so yeah you did the the corporate route and like many people. You saw yeah. I don't like all this red tape. Bureaucracy let's go. I can do this better out of my own all-star consulting and then we'll we'll see where it takes me. Yeah and you know it comes with With a joy and with pain obviously Alex you know that as well You know If you want to be an entrepreneur If you like building things from the ground up it obviously comes with without the safety blankets in a lot of cases right so you gotta have a risk tolerance. I think you've got to have the desire to really drive You know The notion of never quit the notion of being responsible for all it's really part of that journey and but I also feel that it is the most rewarding way to work if you have the ability to to truly do what you like can enjoy and push forward and grow something special. I think that's the most rewarding thing you can professionally aside from obviously you know Establishing a family and have a good family live and grow kids

The Five Most Important Movies at Sundance

The Big Picture

The Five Most Important Movies at Sundance

"The game we made up is essentially the five bio-pics you meet in heaven so we tried to find the five different kinds of stories that are told in the biopic format. Thought it was pretty fun. I think it's useful to play a game like that at Sundance because there are a lot of homes on not all of them are great in fact some of them are great but when one is good it can be a kind of transformative experience and they usually come in a in a particular kind of package. Now when you think of of a sundance movie what do you think of. I think of a quiet often heartwarming family or rip character-driven dramas with maybe a little bit of quirkiness added to them. That is definitely at least one of the Kennedy talking about this episode also documentaries that's the other one lots and lots of documentaries so she should we dive right in. Okay let's dive right in the first and the most classical example of the sundance movie is exactly what you're describing. It's essentially the family family drama. The sometimes lighthearted sometimes deadly serious as we go through these we'll talk about Some previous examples of films that have played at Sundance that fit this rubric. So when you think of this movie more severe example of it might be winter's bone or fruitvale station or affliction more lighthearted example might be big night a genre fight example might be like take shelter So these movies I think Are the most derided of the Sundance archetype. That's true I was trying not to be dismissive when I was describing off the top of my head but as soon as you say Sundance movie there is just a as soon as you're categorizing categorizing rising things in. You're being unfair to the things which I guess we're going to be unfair to every single move. We talked about to extend. This is a podcast and we need buckets. We need segments. We need to push the conversational says. I wasn't totally totally trying to be dismissive of the family drama. There are good ones. There are bad ones. That's a fact You and I had the good fortune. I think this year to see one of the best movies at the festival and one that falls pretty squarely into this framework. So the movie's called minority We just got out of our screening of minority. What was your takeaway from this film? This is a story about out a Korean American family who emigrates to Arkansas in the eighties and there is a little kid in this movie movie that just absolutely ripped my heart out and and all the performances did and I thought that it is. It's the best case version of this because it's definitely moves you but it's also funny as you said right before we started recording. It's beautifully shot. Well written it smart and not to truly if that makes any does it's an eight twenty four or movie written and directed by a man namely Chung and he has an interesting gracefulness with what what appears to be his own story. I actually don't know anything about where the story comes from but when we were discussing earlier we identified that. There is an incredible level of specificity in the story. In the setting in Arkansas in a family trying to create a new life for themselves a new state and a new country trying to figure out how to stay married trying to figure out how to be good parents trying to figure out how to be good. Children had to be good grandchildren. It's a very complex. WCHS portrait of a family living in close quarters. Not Totally. Sure if they're going to be able to go forward with their lives in the way that they wanted to and all that stuff I still. I'm kind of does a disservice to the movie because that just sounds like Sundance Hokum And I think the movies a little bit more special than that now. Are We experiencing the festival high on a movie perhaps. Perhaps it's possible but as I was watching it I think you'll probably see a lot of comparisons to the farewell about this movie as the year goes on and not just because it's from an Asian and filmmaker but because it's a particularly a story about three generations and how three generations interact with each other and some of the confusion that happens when one culture collides with another culture in place that they don't fully understand the farewell. It's obviously Luang main character. Visiting China Grandmother. This film is a Korean American family moving into a rural place. The thing I liked about it the most is that it doesn't apply the usual tricks that you would think a movie movie like this about a non white family. Moving into the south in the eighties. Might incorporate a little bit more subtle and sophisticated when I heard the word Reagan Reagan early on in the film. I got a little nervous. And there is a lot of thoughtfulness about the socioeconomic aspect of the story. But it's not there. No burning crosses in this movie there is no. You know vindictive vitriolic language about the family. It is really just a family story which I was kind of relieved about honestly it's really insular and it's explores the relationships between between all of the members of the family pretty specifically and individually and but and that's enough that kind of fills up the movie. Yes so since. We've you've never been here before. I kinda wanted to talk about a movie like this. I think this movie might fit into another category and other sort of bucket. We've created here but I've never been able to witness in real time. I am the life cycle of film. That May Be in the consciousness for the next twelve months and to be on the ground floor when that thing happens did you have that sense when you're watching this or did you just feel like well. I've been seeing a lot of movies this week and I'm doing my best to take stock of all of them. I think it was the ladder with their recognition that I thought this was a very good film in one of the best films. I've seen this week. I'm I'm trying to protect against festival buys. I don't I don't know. Do you feel like so. You need to to start some festival buzz right here. I don't think I'm capable of such a thing. I need to know my own power which is minimal nor do I and I think I'm more I have never been to sundance either and I'm treating it more as what you said. It's interesting to watch it happen. And I'll be curious to see how other people respond to it and what it is like to watch it in the screening leaning room whenever people get to see at. Were you know in a movie theater or at home. I don't have a sense. Totally of how those things translate yet and yeah I don't either. I mean it's the sort of film that You know on. Its face. It Star Steven Jahn who obviously had great success actually not utterly dissimilar story burning in two thousand eighteen. There are some kind of thematic and visual references. That kind of match interesting double feature. I just don't know a lot of the Casas. Very Unknown Hania replays his his wife. Stephen's wife who you know. They're the sort of the lead couple in the family. And we'll patent plays a minim. Paul who is is a local aid a spiritual man who works with the family. He's giving what I would describe it as a very sundance. He performance he's anti character is sundance character. Maybe ripped from real life hard to say but this movie is like sort of very quiet and subtle and Paul is not not the most subtle. You're in the world. I don't think Paul will be competing for any awards but Stephen. I don't know he's really turned himself into quite a quite great leading actor. I will say I already mentioned the kid at this is an all time great kid performance and we were talking about after seeing the movie like. How do you get six year old to do what the six year old does? And I don't have the answers to that. I hope to discover them at some point. But we'll say really good kid. Performance goes a long way. It's true in people really love to see a cute kid up on the screen. Uh Ribbon hearts out yeah. He's like a charm vector and an empathy machine. You know that every time he's not screen you're looking at that. I really just feel for that so we didn't attend this party. Apparently he was here at Sundance. Walking the carpets at cowboy outfit. Yes big big park city energy from seven year old Allen Kim. We look forward to more things from him in the future. Go to the next kind of category. Yes okay so I. I've described this as the adult oriented comedy. Now I think that also sounds a little bit dirty like like not not not scatalogical your sexually dirty but just sort of like corny. I'm not sure that adult oriented in comedy is something that you want go together like I said as soon as we're applying larger categories to these things that invokes branding evokes marketing. It invokes all of the things. That aren't a work of art so so I think that's why we feel the way we feel but also this is how the world works and it's definitely help I've gasworks keep going so I would say some of the movies that fall into this. Category are among our favorite movies so four four weddings and a funeral plate sundance many years ago. John Have you seen for weddings and a funeral. I've seen thirty eight minutes of it. What is why do you do this to me is well? It's just the film that I started to watch movies. I watched the whole movie well. This isn't Chris Ryan. I watched the Irishman on three consecutive nights. Nonsense think of it like this life life is one big screening okay more in a continuous stream viewership and happy with you. One day I'll get to the conclusion of four weddings and a few I wasn't going to post host. The picture of you tweeting on the shuttle earlier but now I'm going to is a threat. I want people to note that for the record. Another example of this is significantly different from four weddings and a funeral. The movie like in Bruges which you know well before Martin mcdonagh was being canceled for three billboards outside ebbing Missouri. He was writing really nasty. hilarious assassin in comedies. I hope he gets back to this style very soon because I love that movie very much the next two though I think are more closely associated with a kind of tree. Cly Sundance Story. Now these movies are both huge hits and are kind of emblematic of something and I will admit when I saw them for the first time I was like I liked this movie a lot. The two thousand wild different time very different time the two movies. I'm talking about our five hundred days of summer. But you may recall is the so additional Joseph Gordon Levitt Rom COM com.

"Of the highlights today as many times as a story like this one pops up it never fails to surprise me this past year the town of Saint Louis park Minnesota decided to dump the pledge of allegiance at

for America's soul the Saint Louis park city council in the state of Minnesota decided unanimously that it would no longer recite the pledge of allegiance at its city council meetings because they are worried that that would intimidate immigrants but you got to hear this look at the city councilman Tim browse and told the Minneapolis Star Tribune given the current Washington politics that are going on right now there are a lot of people who are afraid of our government we worry about that we all love our country dearly said another councilwoman and maverick T. and we demonstrate that by our

"Now, you heard the Austin city council that pretty upset that state lawmakers are trying to control the city council when it comes to raising your taxes or talking about house Bill to if approved would restrict city government to county governments from raising your taxes above two point five percents. If they want to go higher, and they can go higher only if they go to the voters above the two point five percent. So they can raise your taxes without even asking you two point five percent. If house Bill two is approved, but they can go even higher, but they have to go to you first and Austin mayor Steve Adler Jimmy Flanagan on the city council. The just about every member the city council they held a press conference today to speak out against that. They say the city councils across the state are United on this front and they're standing with those. Other city council members that want to dig a little bit deeper into your wallet without asking for permission. We'll get the full story on our Facebook page at Todd done. But let's listen to mayor Adler here. We're proud to be standing here today with my colleagues on the council talking about how spoke to knowing that. We are also standing with mayors and city council members across the state, I have never seen as organic and large. Cool. Listen of bipartisan mayors and city council members from across the state rise the way they are rising up with respect to house built to how. How? The rising up to take more of your money to if it does not change cannot be considered anything else other than a direct attack on cities. And that's what mayors leaders saying across the state. As mayor proteomics said if we keep our existing budget and add nothing new to new programs just maintain our existing budget. It requires a three point eight percent increase. That's that's not those are cost drivers. And if we have a cap that sets us at a level below that then we are by definition, and by basic MAC having to make cuts in our budget by let's think about that. So he says just to stay the status quo. They have to raise taxes by at least three point eight percent just to maintain what we got. Now. What's our current budget four billion? That's just over slightly over four billion. I believe it's in that range Todd. So that amounts to how much money how much is that? That's got to be hundreds of millions of dollars. They have to pump into the system just to maintain. What we got now city councilman Jimmy Flanagan who was also who is also the mayor of cedar park, Texas and people listening in live in cedar park. What I'm talking about? Jimmy Flanagan has incredible influence over the city the cedar Park City council. He's basically running the cedar Park City council. He really busy really got a bunch of Benedict Arnold on that city council. Here's Jimmy Flanagan. Also, very excited to stand here with my colleagues talk about hospital to you know, I really want to acknowledge the unique moment that we're in cities from across the state have joined together in a way that that we have not seen before I have been on the conference calls and hearing mayors from very conservative areas from very progressive areas. Join hand and agree that this is not a proposal that reflects the wide diversity amongst municipalities. So they're locked hands together. These city councils across the state when is Jimmy Flanagan witness mayor Adler going to stand up and lock arms with tax payers. That is the thing. I it's like that has been completely completely ignored here. Like, we're not part of the equation is just whatever they. They decide we're supposed to go along with it. It's almost like they're assuming that we will. I think Jimmy Flanagan needs to learn something he may be United with other democrat leaning city councils across the state, but he should also realize that we the people the tax taxpayers were also United on this front to we're sick and tired of you stick in your hand deeper and deeper into our back pockets at any whim just because you got a pet project. You wanna fund it's time that the people the tax payers of this state had more control of their own money. But the thing that is really important to remember for our house members and four senators and for the governor's office. There are things that cities do that. The state wants us to do we have shared priorities that require raising revenue in order to implement. I have been out of events where the governor has shared the stage with the mayor.

"I mean, we're still nominating. Something green book. So like we have a long way to go. But like a, but I do question whether or not Hollywood just rooting for Shiloh book because like he was like Steven Spielberg's kid like he kind of like brought him in. He gave them a lot of chances. And I wonder if he's burned through all those but the reception in Park City to that movie was pretty positive from both the kind of fan side and the more industry or press side. So I'm curious about that one. And then the last question that I want to ask about is the farewell you mentioned this. Yes. Sort of Aquafina showpiece. What do you want to send you? I had not seen the farewell. When we recorded last week. I I missed the first screening, and so I had to catch up later in the week. And I'm really glad I did. It's a really marvelous movie. I mean, it's it's Sunday NC. You know, it's it's I think I mentioned that my review it's a family drama d you know, it has funny parts and sad parts. And I think that's kind of common for Sundance a little miss sunshine. Juno, whatever. But this one feels different because it's about a particular. Experience. It's based on the director Lulu hangs own family. It's Aquafina doing dramatic term, which is exciting. So I mean, I think it could be like a screenplay thing. And maybe, you know in a perfect world, a supporting actress nod for shoes NGO who is a place kind of matriarch of the family who's dying, but doesn't know it. But yeah, I don't know that feels to be more like they'll release it Nagas te and it'll have like some decent box office and good. It'll be kind of like eighth grade. You know Wednesday for who picked it up. Yeah. Exactly twenty four by and like eighth grade got blanked this year at the Oscars, which I was sort of surprised by. But yeah, I was too because they really were pounding the pavement. I felt like Bob Myrna Z Fisher were everywhere, and they were charming while doing and aggressive. That's a complete. That's a plea blank for eight four right? Because I I I. Far. So they have that at least and mid-nineties is thing that happened. Okay. Is there anything allegedly? Is there anything else you want to mention from from sedans or no sorry to give it a little just diary about the festival. No that that was kind of the big things. I think that, you know, a lot of what we just talked about in terms of the Oscars. And all that was was definitely what people were talking about on the ground at the parties. And not that I went to parties I was in bed by eight PM every night. Like a good bike. But you know, I think that the industry just in general feels influx. And I think that like it was interesting that Sundance this here that Netflix didn't buy anything or they just now bought the Zafran as Ted Bundy movie. But that was after the festival, but you know, they've been such a big buying presence in years past and scooping up movies and kind of throwing them into the bin of you know, like even pass Sundance winners. So there was kind of some I think relief about like Netflix, not running the show. But also kind of nervous question about like, what are they doing? Like are they not in the buying acquisitions thing anymore because they have all of their own originals and the Amazon kind of rushed into fill that spot. Fox searchlight was present of the festival, but didn't buy anything. So I don't know. There was a lot of uncertainty about the industry, and I think that like our broader uncertainty about like the award season is here was certainly kind of affecting that. So it was an interesting year to be at Sundance. All right. Well, listen, if Shiloh puffins Pete Davidson are both in the supporting actor category next year. You're gonna quit your job and move to the desert, right? For me. Hello city. Christmas or anything else? You want to say about the well. Okay. Here's the last thing. I'll ask you before we scoot out of here. Which is that you mentioned your Black Panthers sat. But like you had a crazy. Let's call it. Crazy wild prediction in the supporting actress. Yes..

"We are coming to you from Park City Utah at the Sundance film festival. I'm joined today by genuine motto whose film writer at the L A times and Jen before we get going. I have to say, we're just off main street. We're sitting in a little alcove is a nice way of describing cement hallway hear trucks going by. That's where we are described this as an exclusive space along main, which is very very hot real estate the Sundance landscape. I wanna talk to you a little bit about what Sundance means to you as a film writer because obviously both of us are here. Doing work were watching movies interviewing film makers were reporting, but at a different level. I think I think I might be speaking for you. We're getting our tanks refilled we are coming here and seeing really cool stuff. They get us excited about the possibility of films and filmmaking. And I'm wondering as hard as it is to cover Sundance. Do you get a sense of that to do you start? Feeling good about the business and about storytelling. I will say that my my soul feels rejuvenated when I see the great movies that move me and not so much when I wait in line to get into a crowded screening and leave a little bit disappointed, but I will say this year. I personally have seen a good number of movies that I feel are made by exciting new voices that I hope we see more from filmmaking wise and films that are being acquired films that are being noticed that I think will will be moving the conversation forward in the coming year. The thing that I always remember about this point at the festival is that you come here, and you can see narrative and documentary films that take you places emotionally physically that you never get to go to you can be in a classroom with an African American student about whether or not he is the valedictorian that everybody thinks he is losing about loose. Or you can be on the sea of Cortez. Looking at the which is an animal that we're gonna talk about later in the show that's nearly extinct because of some horrible fishing practices. And that to me is what's great about Sundance is that you get out of your bubble. And you get to see how other people live in both narrative and nonfiction films. I totally agree because the other beautiful thing that Sundance is the active discovery is always something that's at your fingertips. You will obviously here about the the big movies. The big premieres the ones that have star power or the ones that have some controversial elements that is being explored mostly on the the nonfiction side. And you'll see those lines off and down main street all over Sundance for for the first good solid week when everybody is here, but there's always such good programming. Just waiting to be discovered, and that's one of the most beautiful things about film festivals. And especially so here at Sundance. So I've run into a fair number of people who've said what is the one? One movie that I should check out and everybody who is asthmatic question. I've said there's one film as a documentary called cold-case hunter called which is by a Danish documentary filmmaker about the plane crash that took the lives of UN secretary general dodge, hammers gold in the early sixties. And then it turns into something very different. What was the movie that you told people they had to check out or they're more than one for me? The number one recommendation is also the one that was my most anticipated coming in which was Luang the farewell which was just acquired by eight twenty four is one of the most talked about films of this festival, and it is such not always such a great story to begin with. It is a true story based on Lulu own life in her own family. The short setup is a young Asian American woman. Played by Aquafina of crazy. Rich agents fame only in a dramatic role in a dramatic lead role, which speaking Mandarin speaking Mandarin. She lives. In New York. She is the daughter of Chinese immigrants in America. They go home to China because her grandmother has been diagnosed with a serious illness that the entire larger family has decided to keep from her. I expected it to be moving coming in. I did not expect it to be so funny. It is hilarious. It is also a movie that left me weeping in my seat, you know, the kind of ugly crying. I don't know about you, John. Do you come do you ever go to movies? And you're just like oh my God. I hope nobody sees my face right now, if anybody who works with me anybody who works for me knows that I'm a very easy Cryer. So I hide it. Well, the challenge is to not do it in interviews which often do as well failed to not do that yesterday. John one of the things that I think might be tricky for you is your reporter, and you're working with critics. So what happens when you're interviewing somebody who has made a movie? And one of your critics, maybe doesn't like that movie so much how awkward is that? And how do you avoid it? Well, reporters have really good poker faces and that's one of the fun things. Like here, you're constantly in dialogue with the film community is here. So you're always hearing about what people are talking about. What movies are great? What movies? You know? Maybe are people are saying you should skip. So you always had this like running sense in your mind through the festival of which films are worth your very limited time. So to your to your point, which I just tried to evade you focus on the positive because a lot of these films. No matter how they will be reviewed have very interesting things to say. And to me, that's the beauty of doing interviews in the sense like in a place like this. There's so many interesting perspectives. There's so many new perspectives that haven't been represented before in film, and to be able to to sit down and talk to filmmakers here about these. Essential discoveries that the rest of the film world is going to to discover eventually is really exciting. Yeah. In every film here may not be a great story and may not be greatly made. But every filmmaker has a great story about why year, she made that film, and it really reminds you that getting any thumb made larger small is a minor miracle in itself. So you have an appreciation for that genuine motto is a film writer at the LA times. Jan thanks so much for coming on the show. Thanks for having me on this called wintery day..

"The last hour talking about the controversial film being released in the Park City film, Bethel the. Sundance about Michael Jackson. And it's going to be very controversial revealing some things about Michael fans are not too pleased about things he's been acquitted. But beyond the controversy surrounding Michael Jackson and a lot of controversy surrounding Rockstars. I was reading a Milwaukee Wisconsin newspaper online last night as I was coming home. And a story. Caught my eye about how many bands that I grew up with are hanging their Spurs and doing their final tours. L John has been touring. And it said that he's extending his final tour Ozzy Osbourne is also doing another leg of his no more tours show iron. Maiden is ready to say their goodbyes. As is Bob Seger. Jeff Lynne of yellow. And of course, when my favorite bands kiss is saying that this is the end of their road as well. What was interesting is. The paper seemed a bit skeptical about these monsters Iraq ending their appearances, especially kissing Ozzy Osbourne since Ozzie said he was going to be a fair welling. And then he did a tour called retirement sucks. Now, he's doing the second leg of the no more tours tour, which I'm going to be attending in the spring. Just got my kiss tickets. I'm excited for their end of the road tour. But of course, they had a farewell tour. There was a reunion tour of the farewell tour. Now goodbye again. And of course, this Milwaukee paper said they were really skeptical of the kiss is really going to hang it up because they just don't know how to stop. And where there's always. In fact, I was talking with my boss today. And I said, do you think they're gonna do a farewell? He goes. Oh, no. He says if Simmons wants to make money, they'll make money. Well, just goes to show you that back when I was a kid and many of us when we were kids Rockstars does for superheroes. In L, pretty pretty amazing, and they're still amazing for rocking as long as they have and still they sell out Rivas. I mean, some of the bands that my parents as I remember, what was it, Gary Puckett and the union gap. I remember I had to sell tickets for a policeman's ball, Gary Puckett, and the union gap and the diamonds and a bunch of bands play. They didn't sell out. But these bands, you know, after forty years, they don't sell out these bands after forty nearly fifty years they sell out they still sell out. And I think the reason this happens is because of the fact that there's a lot of mystery. That goes with some of the rock and roll we listen to. A lot of urban legends and rumors that music certainly had its connections, both real and unreal with the devil and with a little strange tidbits of music that certainly need to be exploited. When I was a kid music was made by superheroes. Of course, you know, kiss their superheroes are men in tights is like superman or any others. Many of the band's I saw were just stick figures because I was in the back row, but it is the music in the performance and all that that made them larger than life. When you look at albums. You know, you get these little cool things in your albums pull out posters released singles you get liner notes. That's why did the patriotic thing. Because I was thinking it was the same thing when we do patriot on you get little tidbits from ground zero. You wouldn't get all else. Elsewhere, and you'd be able to get autographed pictures and buttons and all those cool things devoted that. When I was a kid we used to get Devaux Steph. But how many of us remember the special meetings that were set up by the PTA or by our local pastures where we were told bands like black Sabbath, rush ACDC sticks. Rush in kiss.
