"Yes, indeed. Yes, indeed. Yes, indeed. It is me. It is me. It is me, DJ Intense, gracing you guys, your airwaves with our podcast today. The band is back, yo. The band is back. It's no longer a bunch of twos. It's a three here. Three. Trio. To the left of me, I have, I am Walt. What's up, Walt? Um, I'm really good. I'm in good spirits. Um, not like those dumb ass giants. Well, you know, how about those cowboys? Don't feel bad. But, um, deserve it. Listen, we deserve it. You don't pay a guy $40 million that hasn't proven that a damn thing. Yes, you do. Players get paid on, players get paid on potential all the time. Yeah. I'm sorry guys. Quarterbacks like that get paid on, you know, because, you know, a one good time. I'm telling you, because of that, say, go probably be like, bye -bye. So don't be surprised. Saquon Barkley leaves next year. Saquon? I don't even mind if he leaves. We deserve it. Yep. And I'm gonna leave with him. They deserve it. I know you're a bareback dripper. Well, technically, he could be franchised, but I don't know what the deal they structured of him, you know, franchise or not. So if I was him, I would leave. I wouldn't even blame him. You sure? Say that now. Don't leave. No, I'll leave with him. Come back. Listen, the Maurer family is a curse on the Giants organization. It's done good for that team since the days of Eli. Even then, some of the things they were questionable. Beyond that, man, they should, they don't even coach, they could have hired, they didn't hire them. Yep. They fired Tom Coughlin. Nope said. It's pain pinching, bro. Not pain pinching. They're the worst, one of the worst ran organizations out there. Yep. And I'll say it because you could have drafted Lamar Jackson, those guys. Nope. You went and got Danny, you know, the, the, the, the Giants could have drafted Mike Parsons. Yep. And we got Diddy Terps. I mean, you know, the 10th pick, the Dry's going to trade it down their pick from seven and when it went to 20 to still get Danny Jones. Yep. So what can I say? Well, that, you know, that's just the most, and to the right of him, I'm looking at the, looking at the front door as a Giants fan, man. I might be going to the, to the bills, man. He's just like, man, this ship's sailing pretty quickly. I've been a Giants fan for most of my life. I'm 40 years old right now. And to see the organization going the way they're going right now, it's like the same way I've seen with the Yankees. Like, yo, what the hell is going on? Who is running the show? Do you realize since the last time the Giants went to chip, they've been at the playoffs twice. And so they went to the Yankees. They want to have it in the, in the world series in over 10 years. Well, you know, the Yankees problem is right. Yeah. They're not spending enough money. No, the time has passed them by. They're running off old school metrics and doesn't work. That's true. You just can't think you can jack up home runs and escape of a game. You have, you know, runs RBIs one bad idea, you know, they just need a sound system and some video like that. This is a whole lot, but you know, I read it separately. Wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. That was good. That was good. That was good. I like that. I like that. That was good. It was allegedly man. It wasn't, you know, allegedly. All right. So, so, so, so, so they was, so they was Jekyll at home. And then all of a sudden they turn into Mr. Hyde and when they play the Yankees away, no, they still did things away. What was it like when they was just at home? It was astronomical at home. Oh, unbelievable. Right. Listen, I'm a Boston fan too. So you got all the smoke for, for Bella check is spiky. But meanwhile you knew there was cheating. You'd be with the red Sox, the Astros. That's what's out here cheating, but you got all the smoke for Bella check and spiking on and be consistent. King be consistent out here. Don't do that. Don't do that. Don't be mad because, because the passengers, you know, a little innovative and ahead of the curve, that's why they get their heads stomped up. Don't worry. When, when, when, when, when they hacked the rule book again, again, you'll be up in arms complaining about something, you know, don't worry. You'll find something. I said, he said, how you doing, man? All these considered, man, I'm good. I'm doing better. Just had to deal with some real life BS and get cut out of certain certain cancer out of my system. And I'm doing better now. Well, still dealing with a little bit of an injury because that's what I told you guys. I'm live on the podcast, but I got snuffed and kicked in the, in the grapes by, uh, by a patient on my job. He got kicked in the gonads.
Fresh update on "parson" discussed on Evangelism on SermonAudio
"No, it's all good. For people starting podcasts, my advice is always the same. Just do it. Don't think about cost. Don't think about all the stumbling blocks that can come out of the way. I just started this five years ago, a microphone and a computer. Just loving God and loving theology, wanting to do something to glorify God. I'm not a pastor. I'm not a teacher. I don't even have a degree. None of that stuff matters. One thing that matters is you have a passion to drive, to do something. Whatever it is, you go hard at it and do it. God puts his hands on it. As far as what am I reading, I'm still in the book that I got from Truth Matters Conference, the Foundation. One Foundation. I'm still reading through One Foundation. I think I mentioned that on your show. What am I listening to? I'm scared to say now. I'm definitely a 90s kid, so that's kind of my genre, 90s era. As far as podcasts, I always tell people about my big three, Grace To You, Truth For Life, and I always forget. Renew Your Mind. Renew Your Mind. Yeah, those are my three favorite podcasts. Thanks for that awesome question. Yeah, those are the great times people have made me more time during the quarantine to do a podcast. This is a great time. Okay, well quickly then, I want to know real quickly, I'm going to ask each of you, except for Dwayne because you just got asked. Justin, what are you listening to and reading right now while you're quarantined? You know, I don't listen to a whole lot. I listen to some sermons online. I listen to Barr from time to time. Yep, I do. And reading right now, I'm kind of reading through the second time in the Gospel According to Jesus. And Steve Lawson's new book right here, New Life in Christ, just started that right before last. Oh wow. Susan, I know that you just finished memorizing the entire New Testament. You have some extra time on your hands now, huh? Yes, I do. A little bit, because a lot of my speakings have been postponed. So, I listen to some of John's messages through this, John MacArthur, and of course my husband, people preacher. But, I'm like Justin, I read more than listen to things, so I'm reading a lot of books that I go through with Ladies I Disciples. It started the Old Testament, so I just got finished with Ecclesiastes chapter 1, so that's a timely book right now. But, reading theology, reading biographies, reading Faith and Feelings by Brian Borkman. Just different books as I prepare to disciple women. And the Bible, reading the Bible. That's great. What about you Doreen? What are you listening to and reading right now? My favorite online radio station is called Refnet Christian Radio, R-E-F-N-E-T. So it comes out of Ligonier, so it's very heavy on R.C. Sproul, which I can't get enough of. But it's also got Derek Thomas, it's got John MacArthur, John Piper, and it's got music that is biblical. So I didn't have to worry that I'm going to be apostate with some apostate music. And then for a reading, Burt Parsons just came out with a nice little book called A Little Book on Christian Life, which is kind of a distillation of John Halvin's work in the Institutes. He kind of boiled down the Institutes. Oh, I like that. That is very cool. Yeah, it's good. Wow. Okay, Phil, what about you, besides catching up on all of your Tools and Honey episodes that you've probably missed? Yeah, well, I listen to a podcast that Duane produces called Just Thinking. Oh, I love that one. Yes. Which I won't miss that one. I don't listen to a lot of podcasts on a regular basis. I tend to sample them. And I also like to go to the Sermon Audio website, just pick a random sermon from a preacher I've never heard. They have some amazing preachers that you've never heard from, and you've never heard of. You know, guys who actually open the Bible and preach from it, and I love that. Every now and then I'll find... Some of them aren't that great, but every now and then you find a preacher, you just think, wow, where's this guy been? And why have I never heard of him? Yes. I'm also reading right now two things, sort of actively, a book called The Great Influenza by John and Mary. It's a secular book about the 1918 Spanish Flu, because it seems to go with what we're going through today. Is that the guy who wrote Peter Pan? No. Oh, okay. That would have been really great. That would have been great. That would have been great. Yeah, no, he's a living author. John and Mary, the book is The Great Influenza. Okay. And then there's the leadership team of the flock that I've asked for reading together, The Glory of Christ by John Owen. Oh, wow. Which is pretty thick reading, but really rewarding. Yeah, that's good stuff. I like it. That is awesome. Yeah, absolutely. Okay, I have a question here from our YouTube audience really quickly. Patrick wants to know, Patrick, Cave to the Cross apologetics, we love those brothers. They've got a wonderful podcast that he wants to know, and we can jump in. You guys can jump in anywhere here, whatever you think. When is a time where we should stop listening to the state and go ahead and meet in church? Justin, you mentioned at the beginning when we were talking about this, how the state's not targeting Christians. This is just a blanket thing. So do you think that, would that be the point? Whenever they say, okay, just Christians have to stay home, and then we would need to meet? Or do you think, at this point, even if the situation changes where the numbers are going down, do you think we still need to go ahead and just be obedient and wait it out? Yeah, I would say for the next couple months, yeah, it differs to the authorities.
A highlight from LGM Podcast: NFC Preview
"This is how, this is how Kellen Clemens ends up playing for 17 years in the NFL. This is the Lawyer's Guns and Money Podcast. All right, well, shall we move on to the NFC now? Absolutely. All right, well, let us talk the NFC East, which is an interesting division in the sense that you have a Cowboys team, which is every year is the year they're about to go back to the Super Bowl, and then it never happens ever, ever, ever. An Eagles team that certainly should be very good. A Giants team that is interesting, I think, and a Washington team I don't believe in at all. But at least Daniel Snyder is not in control anymore. There's probably two wins right there. So projections, and again, for somebody like models always love the Cowboys. Once again, Cowboys 11 wins, Eagles 10, the Giants 6 .4, so models not high on the Giants. I think I understand why, although they certainly could beat that. And actually, the commanders actually have a higher win projection. I scrolled too far. They're actually 7 .6. So the model actually likes the commanders a little bit more than the Giants, which is not absolutely unreasonable, although I don't think that's how most people would pick it. So first of all, this is another case where at the top of the division, I think the model is pretty clearly wrong, and not because I think the Cowboys are, but again, the models do not know who's coaching the team. That's one thing, and is now taking over the play calling. So McCarthy's amazing because it's like three and a half quarters of literally just calling plays from the first screen of Madden. And then when the game's on the line, having your running back direct snap to your punter or some shit, it's not good. And look, the Cowboys are a very talented team. Micah Parsons, probably the best defensive player in football. They've got a great secondary. I think getting rid of Elliott, who they basically had to force feed to justify paying him is actually a plus. Dagg, it's a little hard to say, but there's certainly a substantial fluctuation in performance there, but he's generally good. It's generally a good regular season team. I still like them as much as the Eagles. I mean, I think I heard somewhere that Jalen Hurts was paying like nine to one for MVP. I like that a lot, especially if Mahomes misses a couple of games. I mean, he was legitimately outstanding. And, you know, I guess there's, you know, people may want to see it for another year. I can understand that, but he looks good. Obviously, they have an excellent offensive line, excellent skill talent. Yeah. I mean, the defense will probably regress. And it was a bit of a, you know, the one thing about the Eagles is that it was the defense is a bit of a front runner. You know, like it was very good against bad teams, but it got shredded pretty badly when it had to go up against really elite teams with the exception of, you know, the Niners who were, you know, I think, I think, I think Kyle Shannon actually took 10 steps in that game. But, you know, when they actually had to play a good quarterback, like it's a good defense, don't get me wrong. You know, I don't think they're going to, you know, set any sack records again. But to me, they're clearly the class of the division. They're a better coach than the Cowboys. You know, and I think they're a little more consistent throughout the roster. You know, but obviously those are two really good teams. You know, I think that my guess is that what the model says about the Giants is that they're incredibly lucky to have that record last year so that, you know, they can actually improve a little bit, but given like more normal luck and a tougher schedule can actually win fewer games.
As rising oceans threaten NYC, study documents another risk: The city is sinking
"New York City is slowly sinking under the weight of its skyscrapers and other structures built on top of it. I'm Julie Walker, as rising ocean's threat in New York City, a study from the U.S. geological survey documents another risk, the loose soil like artificial fill. That was put in to enhance some of the land areas and that can sink just under its own way because it's so poorly consolidated. And if you build on that, of course, that exacerbates it. Lead researcher Tom Parsons also says parts of the city will eventually be underwater. It's inevitable that The Crown's going down the water is coming up at some point, those two levels will meet, but I'm not able to give you a date. The research team calculated the more than 1 million buildings spread across the city's 5 boroughs, add up to about 1.7 trillion tons, Julie Walker, New York
"parson" Discussed on Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart
"Okay, I mean, if dick Parsons is confident in the banking system, I have no right not to write not to be. Mister Parsons, today, there are only 6 Fortune 500 companies run by black CEOs. Which is more, it's actually a record high. More than when you were a CEO. What's preventing greater greater racial representation at the top of corporate America? Well, I think it's akin to what I called earlier the structural inequalities. I mean, who sits on the board. Boards are the ones that determine now who's going to be CEO. And I can tell you, from my experience, whenever I was involved either in the search or looking for somebody and find somebody of color, people would actually say to me, well, you know, I don't know, but I don't know where they are. And I would say, well, you know, you're not going to find them at your club, right? You're not going to find it. You're not going to find living next door. You have to reach out. And that's just something we need to keep harping on. The reach out part. There will be more at least. I made this prediction 20 years ago when I was a CEO that there would be many more. Blacks and the women. Women are doing, by the way. And this regard, you do run into them in your club, and you do. So you can familiarity. But as long as we tend to live separately, again, the current back to that becoming a nation separate nations. As long as we live separately and as long as corporate boards in particular are. 8 men, women are starting to come on board, but white men, it's a struggle, simply because. I don't know anymore. Mister Parsons repeat that because your mic went out. It's a struggle because what? Oh, it's a struggle because we don't live together. And therefore, we don't have familiarity with each other. And until the complexion of corporate America at the level changes more, you're not going to see that much change in the CEO job. But the complexion of corporate America. It is changing. There are more. Minorities and particularly more women, and so I have hope. It's just a slow moving slow moving process. Needs to speed up. Richard Parsons, chairman of equity alliance. It is, like I said, at the beginning of this conversation, a joy to see you. Thank you so much for coming to Washington Post live. It's been my pleasure. It's nice to see you.

"parson" Discussed on Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart
"With ESG. It had to do with first of all. No bank. No bank can really withstand. A run. Of nature of banking is such that you take in money short, meaning you have to give it back whenever somebody shows up for it. And you'll lend it along. Now, Silicon Valley bank made lots of loans in the startup space, and they also invested in some treasuries that were at the time when interest rates were really low, looked very attractive. One interest rates spiked, and so the treasuries they invested in lost value, big time, and two, a lot of the venture loans they made were very long. I mean, you couldn't just call the guy up and say, I need my money back with my depositors are here. And in today's world, back in the day, when I was like, if you wanted to run on the bank, you had to literally show up at the bank, because your money, right? Today, today, so that would take that takes weeks and you had a chance to defend yourself, put your case before. Now I regulate what your own M the time. Today, it happens in a matter of hours as we saw in faithful Friday. I just ran out of dough. But it doesn't have anything to do with ESG, or some of the crazy things that sort of cultural here have asserted. Right. Real mistaken. So, you know, mister Parsons, you talked about some of the factors that led to the collapse of SVP yesterday, the Federal Reserve raised interest rates by 25 basis points or a quarter of a percent, which leads us to a question from the audience. This is a question from Aaron Carl from Arizona. Can you share your thoughts on how higher interest rates affect capital allocation to smaller minority owned businesses? Yeah. I'll start with referring back to what I call the structural inequity. You know, there's an expression that I was in the service. X slows down hill and cleaned that up for you. The bottom of food chain always sort of hit the hardest. Particularly the SVP and silvergate bank and the other one that went down. What that has done is it's created. A constraint that's what that would do. That banks feel the tighten their lending, right? So it's quite a result, no question about it. And title lending constraints. And the fact that money now costs more is also going to create a strain on lending. It used to be, I can remember saying that people two years ago. When it was free, almost. So now it ain't free anymore. And is that going to hurt minority entrepreneurs yes it is? Because it's going to hurt anybody trying to build a business. And that's where most of them are in the life cycle and they're trying to build, they need capital to build. That's the whole point behind the equity alliance. You've got to get capital and the people's hands with them to build something. And so I expect to see more stringent lending requirements by the banks and it's going to seemingly all things. It's going to impact on minority and women community. I think a bunch of those more painfully than on mainstream business enterprises. Is it going to cut it out altogether? No. But it's just going to be harder. So what's happened with Silicon Valley bank and signature and Credit Suisse has me and a lot of other people thinking back to 2008. Where do you see this banking crisis going? How does it compare to what we went through? What happened in 2008? That's a good question. Frankly, I think that because of the fact that the federal government stepped up and did the right thing. They learned something in 2008. They did the right thing which was to sort of backstop all the deposits and say, we're not going to not going to let this systems banking system melt down because people are afraid they're not going to get their money back. I think they nipped it in the butt. I really do. I think this is more, this is going to go back to if you were born in 70s, you were just high school of college kids and we had something called long-term capital in 1998. Which one of the big investment funds broke up and the fed stepped in and nipped it in the butt. And there was some concern for, I don't know, we could mean and how is this going to play out? But then obviously the market settled down and they realized that the government was not going to let this become a contagion type of situation. 2008 was total collapse of the system. And it took it took a while for the government to really sort of figure out that we need to inject capital into the system to stabilize it and to restore trust, et cetera. No banking system can exist along unless there's trust in it. This time, they hit the mark, the following Monday after the collapse on Friday. And said, we're not going to have the trust drain out of the system. We're going to support the depositors, the banks depositors. We're going to make sure that none of them lose any of their money. And so they nipped it in the butt. I think what could have been a real disaster. What do you say to those who say the sermon is the president? What do you say to those who say that the fact that the federal government did step in and made those depositors whole that they're setting up a moral hazard where banks can just basically say, well, we can take all the risks we want because the federal government is just going to step in if we get into trouble. No, I don't think that's going to happen because we're going to do it. You watch and see, they're going to go back and revisit some of the regulatory requirements that were eased in 2018. That's the purpose of regulation to make sure that the banks aren't being irresponsible. Moreover, the people who put the money up for the bank, the investors, and some of the lenders who are outside the scope of deposit are going to lose money. Well, particularly the investors. And the management is going to have to be held accountable. But it's in our national interests to actually end the government and the people's interest to defend and protect the depositors because you have to, you know, that's where the banking system does. It takes into positive. That they don't need right now. It's your money back when you want it. And then that money is invested in our economy. And economic growth. That's an engine that we want to keep going. And that I've seen some of the things written by, you know, our favorite senator from Massachusetts and others who want blood, right? There's always a pitchfork crowd that shows up, but I will tell you, I don't think any of any of the problems that have been dealt with with SVP or the other banks you mentioned are going to cost the taxpayer money because they're more than enough assets there. This we learned in the diet. I learned in the city. And more than enough assets there to cover those liabilities. If you give it time, that's the thing. And doesn't give it time. You have to give it time to unwind these things. And there's more than enough there.
"parson" Discussed on Cape Up with Jonathan Capehart
"CEO of dime Bancorp, chairman and CEO of Time Warner, interim chairman of CBS. And he's put that expertise and experience into cofounding equity alliance with the stated goal to democratize access to capital. In this conversation, first recorded for Washington Post live, on March 23rd, Parsons doesn't just talk about equity alliance. He talks about Silicon Valley bank, the accusations of woke capitalism and the action taken by the federal government. The federal government stepped up and did the right thing. They learned something in 2008. Let's talk about the leadership you're engaged in now. Mister Parsons, what exactly is equity alliance? And how are you measuring success? Is it just the bottom line? No, it's not just well, and let me start from the beginning and build up a little bit. The equity alliance was an idea that I had with a friend of mine and Kenny Lee. We were sitting around in the wake of George Floyd, and I was complaining about the fact that everything that people were reporting and complaining about what the George Floyd incident incident incident, excuse me. It sounded like 50 years ago when I was a college student or a law school student, just coming out of school. And we had all the riots in Detroit and New York and Philadelphia and Newark wanted a commission called the man just went out right in my head. I don't come back to me in a minute. The commission reported on the causes of these riots. This is the point of the story. And you could have taken the first page out of that. And 50 years later, with the George Floyd same issues, discrimination, poor housing, lack of educational quality, lack of job opportunities, unfair policing. Nothing had changed in 50 years. It was just stunning to me. And when we thought about it, Kenny, I was sitting on a thing about it. I said, the real problem is that in order to change things around and in order for. The grow in terms of personal being safeguard, they need. Capital. And if you look at the way in which we allocate capital in this country, the asset management business, something like a 70 to $80 trillion visit. Less than 2% of that investment capital gets into the hands of minorities or women, who are overlooked by our structure. I say it's structurally structural inequality. I don't use racism because racism suggests there's an intentionality to it. And I don't believe that's necessarily true. But it is in equal. Unequal. Minorities and women do not get anything close to their fair share of investment capital. So we said, you know, we obviously are going to change the world by ourselves. And we said, what can we do to start to level that playing field? So what the equity alliance is, it's a bunch of folks that I know and Kenny knows from the investment world who the money together to start a fund of funds. Focuses on other emerging venture managers who are either people of color or women, and because we believe that there's a lot of talent out being overlooked, being we could find that talent and create an investment vehicle that gave superior returns because there's no shortage of ideas and opportunities in the overlooked communities, particularly in the minority community. And so our objective was to set out to prove that you could, as I like to say, you could find gold in them nor hills. You could find real, great investment opportunities. And you get a return that was superior to the returns otherwise you can get in the market. And our first thought was that because frankly, this is a bit of a confession against interest. You know, we were the incumbents. I mean, I came from mainstream, by the time I got to this mainstream artist, as you mentioned, I ended up a number of. S&P 500 companies and been involved in commerce and investment for years as it can as of the other settles we brought in. And so we could then go back to our former colleagues and peers and say, hey, look, guys, take a look at this model. This works. This is the way you can invest in communities you've overlooked in the past. And get a decent to superior return. So wake up. That was the point of this. Everybody was had woke, right? Because of the George Floyd situation. But they didn't know what to do. They didn't know what to do. They wanted to do something. They didn't know what to do. So we try and create a model for them. Sorry to go on a quick link, but I wanted to give you the background. Well, that's the great background to continue the conversation in the commission you were thinking of was the kerner commission. His name just went right out of my mouth. It's quite all right. I only know it because that was the year I was born. So I'm very
Micah Parsons Apologizes After Viral Tweets About Brittney Griner
"The NFL linebacker, mister Parsons, who was a tremendous football player, mind you. But I want to go back over to stuff that he said because in my mind, I'm thinking, why did he apologize? And then it's like, everybody's apology is dead. I communicated with somebody that I respect. Why can't you communicate with somebody respect, but still disagree with them? I don't think he should have apologized for this. And let me read his tweets again. He said, wait, no. We left the marine. And then he goes on to write, we still not voting for you. It's what parson said in a tweet for Joe Biden. Because I believe he had the wisdom to say, we got her, but didn't get a marine. You're doing this for votes. From black people. This is one of them cares you can dangle over the black man head and say, look what we did for y'all. Now we get y'all votes for another 20 years. But Parsons in my opinion had an educated opinion about it. And he made a statement that I believe that is a sentiment of many people in this country. But then, somebody, some woke black dude, veteran, somebody on this team, or somebody stupid, I wouldn't say stupid, but somebody who's who I think is less bold about the statements that they make, must've told him he better apologize or else. He said I just spoke, this is the tweet he wrote after he deleted his other tweets. Just spoke to some people that I respect and trust, I should have been more educated on the topic and not tweeted out of emotion for my family and others who have served. For that I apologize, he goes on to say, also, if what I've been told about also, if what I'm told about the attempts to bring the marine home are true, then the best outcome was accomplished. I pray mister Whelan comes home, but I'm extremely happy for Britney and our family. I am not too prideful to admit when I made a mistake. I respect what he said, but you didn't make a mistake. You know what? You don't have to delete what you said. You can add context to what you said.
HBO Chairman Jeff Bewkes Saved Richard Plepler's Career
"In 1995, after then, HBO chairman Michael fuchs was unceremoniously fired. His replacement, Jeff mucus, was strongly urged by Time Warner heavyweights, Jerry Levin, bob Daley, and dick Parsons to fire fuchs right hand PR operative, Richard plepler. Actually, strongly urge may be an understatement. And that's because plepler was seen as being too tied to fuchs. Fostering serious doubts about whether he could be loyal to the company. In the wake of fuchs firing departure. But mucus showing some rather big balls to his bosses, refused to take plepler out, deciding instead to make plepler promise to dedicate his loyalty to the company, not to one of its past honchos. Plue kept his word, left pukes behind, and emerged as what might be called the chief storyteller of the HBO brand, both inside and outside the company. Plepler became CEO and chairman of HBO in 2013, presiding over historic growth and launching HBO now. The company's stand-alone streaming service, which eventually morphed into HBO Max.

He told them that he He had personal terms in place with with manchester city. They were higher than than i anticipated. And he's willing to take the contract. There's talk of a two year deal The problem is city Event is saying well. We're not going to let them go on a free. That's very very clear. You've of course losing something like three hundred more than three hundred million over two years. They wanna get a feedback and city thus far is taping. This have yet to make a bid. You expect a bid on friday from manchester city and that is they expect to be right around thirty million euros and if that happens think he's john. Ronaldo will be free to go.

Sen. Ron Johnson Responds to Other Republicans Faulting to Infrastructure Bill
"How is it that 19 of your colleagues decided this was a good idea on the Republican side. I can't explain that. Then they kept telling us who is fully paid for which course it ended up not being paid for another quarter of a trillion, about $256 billion more to our deficit. I nobody kept talking about how you know, spending in structure is really popular. Well, let's face it. Three. Money's always popular right, right. Nothing's ever free. But and then they also realize that being bipartisan is popular as well. But I always use caution constituents come up, say, you know, be more Brian Parsons. So we'll be careful what you wish for because I'll guarantee what one thing that Washington is really good at doing in a bipartisan basis, and that is mortgaging our Children and grandchildren and great grandchildren feature. And Of course, that's what we saw over the last couple days here, you know, $1.2 trillion infrastructure. 3.5, which is really over $5 trillion of Bernie's budget. No, that's tacked on the $1.9 trillion covid relief package. Where and then this actually relates the infrastructure over $700 billion of that covid relief isn't even steps to be spent till 2022 to 2028. I've always said to Republican position infrastructure, and we do need to invest in infrastructure. But our position should have been as less cake. The $700 billion that is clearly not coverted leaf. Repurpose that money for hard infrastructure, roads, bridges, ports, locks and dams. But again, we had too many Republican members that just wanted to get behind closed doors. You know the old swampy Washington way do a bipartisan deal. And of course, you know that the bottom line is they're being Charlie Brown's to the Democrats, Lucy each and every time in this time, Lucy was screaming issues going to pull the football away.

That's, that's going to do it for the short abbreviated version of the Cowboys beat podcast. Just talk about Micah Parsons again. Overall, I'm a fan of pick from a standpoint of From a lot of different people. I've talked to you got the best defense to play this draft, okay? And you got the third bullet, third defense player off the board but but a lot of people think he's the best defense to put in this draft, similar to Isaiah Simmons, were the profile is a hybrid linebacker, Uber athletic great speed. Sideline-to-sideline questions about his ability to point of attack and strength there you know and then there's the off-the-field stuff but but ultimately the cowboy is I believe picked the best player on the board and that's what I asked them to do, that's what they did.

"In the cowboy said, we're not going to move down to twenty kids, not going to get our guy and they knew if they made the trade with a guy who for some reason, want to go to the Giants. Maybe they thought the Giants going to take Smith. I don't know, not really sure what the Giants were afraid of or the Eagles. I should say but at any rate they take Parsons they, this is the guy they want it. Ten clearly thought they knew that he was going to be there at 12. They make the trade they end up with the additional third, Micah Parsons Ran a three right up in a, a 439. 40-yard dash it. His size. It's incredible. I mean, he, he is one of the he's probably the most athletic off the draft is, he's a very similar player to Isaiah Simmons. Last year, coming out of Clemson. These are the modern linebackers. that are extremely athletic great, sideline-to-sideline speed, you know, can cover So, you know, look, I mean, I certainly not a guy that I would have, surely not a guy that I was totally high on. A lot of that was based on number one off-field issues, which, you know, he's involved with the hazing incident took and state was pretty graphic, you know, I'm sure he was asked about this the Cowboys. And, you know, he probably talked about the fact he was inexperienced, and young, and Seventeen eighteen, whatever it is, and, you know, I mean, his certify them better for the doubt of that point, but there's those and then there's the positional piece import is linebacker. Given that, if you improve the interior of the defensive line, you improve your corners and safeties, you're in good shape. Now look I sell that to say. I say pretty consistently, take the best player in your board. But first, let me tell you about my friends have been online.

"30th is the Cowboys beat the clns media, I'm tempting. But I've noticed that today's episodes but shorter than usual month because we're in the middle of the NFL draft. And as of release here, Friday morning, which is the normal release time for the cock podcast, Cowboys only selected 1 player throughout the rest of the draft play out. Now with 11 or 10, more Pix, 11 total picks for the Cowboys, going to be releasing another podcast episode into next week to sort of recap, everything that's happened for the Cowboys in this draft, so longer version to come next week.

So weird top 10, Because things. took a different turn than maybe we expected them to and So for the Cowboys Cowboys were supposed to pick a 10. They end up swapping with the Eagles and still getting the guy that they wanted attend. So they basically pick up another third-round, pick em. So they now have three third-round picks 11 pics, overall ten picks left after the first round. That's all good news. And look they end up with arguably the best defensive player draft and the third defensive player off the board that was perhaps most surprising figured a lot of us. Did the Cowboys at 10 would be able to be selecting the best defensive player draft. Most likely they'd have their pick of JC Horner Patrick certain Micah Parsons if they they liked him preferred that position of a corner. We knew Corner was gonna be the premium for them but as it stood the Broncos pickups are 10:00 at 9 right in front of them. And it was JC horn, going 8-2 Carolina. Not a surprise that horn was the one picked. First, I thought he was the better of the two corners. He was the guy thought that the Cowboys would end up taking. But Cowboys didn't have an opportunity to take either horn long or short, an because they were both gone. And so the Cowboys are on the board there. And, and of the, you know, I talked about potentially taking for offense of players. If available at 10, that would be pen a song. Jaylen waddle or Kyle pits and then the fourth was Rashawn Slater. The offensive tackle for Northwestern. He was on the board of ten Cowboys decided whoever they wanted at 1000, Parsons was going to be available at 12 and all.

interview With Kelly Walters, Artist, Educator, Designer
"All right so tell us who you are and what you do. My name is kelly walters. I am a artist educator designer. I teach at parsons school of design. And he i make. I make a bunch of different things print and digital and everything in between nice. How are you feeling so far about twenty twenty one. Twenty twenty one you know. I was really curious to see how the inauguration was actually going to play out at the end of december just anxious about all the various things that have been happening and i think the beginning of twenty twenty one felt really rocky just for me in trying to understand like how the end of one presidency the beginning of a next the middle of a pandemic and sort of just a lot of uncertainty so it felt a little overwhelming. I think but it feels like it's getting potentially better as best as better can be yes. I don't know if that's a thing. But yeah i mean i can certainly see how it sort of feels a bit like. We're starting to see the light at the end of this long pandemic size tunnel so i know what you mean especially that we have new leadership. There's vaccines that are out there. People are getting vaccinated. It feels like things are starting to go into a different direction Yeah i just. I feel like i. I'm just anxious for everyone and making sure that we can safely make it through the second year. I guess of this like new world that we're in and i'm also really curious to see kind of patterns or observations are made in this time that will affect us longer than this time. I guess longer than the year in change it's been. I'm really curious to see what it looks like. And like being able to reflect back maybe even in ten years or five years like what i remember of this era. So i don't know like reflexive i think in that way like looking forward and back if i can at the same time as funny. That's that's kind of january. Is after the the greek i think. Greek god or demi-god janice has one face looking for one face looking back so that's kind of apt comparison. There are things different for you now than they were last year. Trying to think at this point last year we were. Maybe like a week out before everything shut down. If i recall. I think the last time i was in new york was like march eleventh. When we were told like two days later everyone had to sort of stay at home. And i think like things were more sort of uncertain in some ways at the very beginning of that last year as i reflect on where i am now. I don't know. I feel like they're still unknowns. But i'm i'm living to sit inside of the uncertainty. It's very uncomfortable to do that. But i i don't know i think more than last year i feel like this year. You have to sit with the uncertainty in a way that i don't know i don't know how to really describe that exactly. I just feel like i'm navigating what it means to not know even more than before and not take for granted what was thought to be stable or when was thought to be certain. If that makes sense yeah. So what is a regular day like for you now. What my home is my office is. My classroom is my social space. So you know it's it's the all purpose room for many things. I think it was. I think it was weird to navigate that last year of like finding what the delineation is between all of those kind of spaces. But i think depending on who you're talking to in meetings whether it's co workers or your friends or your family kind of figuring out a way to feel as though at your own environment home environment that in a separate area or Time of the day that it can feel as though you can feel the shifts in it. sometimes it's about just getting up and walking outside and coming back and feeling like you've gone into a new room or changing the lighting or opening the blinds or turning on the light. I think it's like these like small actions to make it feel like you're in a different space. Sometimes so i think that that's what my that's what my days like more and more now of just like what are the subtleties that i can adjust in my home environment to you know feel like i'm in a different space. I guess has there been sort of a change in how you've been teaching or anything like that. Uh yeah definitely i think. Now it'll be a full year of teaching remotely online. And i think that for my program in the communication design program at parsons i think we had transitioned to an online teaching format and i think what was really challenging in the beginning with like trying to figure out what does it mean to do a critique in this environment what does it mean to build up student report and morale and all of those in community or around like students that you are working with that previously. You were seeing physically in a particular space. And i think the difference between kind of what i've learned in that kind of crisis moving in a somewhat of a crisis mode to teach remotely versus starting the year teaching remotely just like i've been working with students all year that i probably won't ever get to meet in person. And so there's this difference in trying to figure out how to get to know someone as much as one can an online format through smaller group conversations or having slack channels or things where people can sort of commune in a digital sphere. But it's definitely been different than previous years
The Mystery Of Houska Castle
"The most famous legend about host castle says it was built over a gateway to hell if that's true. Unfortunately there's no way to prove it. The question of whether a fiery afterlife exists is better left to theologians and philosophers but host gay isn't the only place that allegedly hides a portal to the underworld take for example. The stole cemetery. Otherwise known as america's most evil graveyard. It's a burial plot in remote. Kansas on the surface it's a bleak creepy looking necropolis. But according to legend it's much more just beyond the graveyard an abandoned church looms over the headstones and grassy walkways. Perhaps at one time it was elegant and beautiful but any hints of its old majesty have long since faded away by the nineteen nineties all that remained or a few crumbling brick walls without a roof. The church is significant because it supposedly sits atop a gateway to hell local legends says that in eighteen fifty lucifer himself emerged from the underworld afterward. Rumors suggested satan would rise in the graveyard twice a year. Once at midnight on the spring equinox and again on halloween and for decades locals apparently gathered for parties to watch the devils entrance only to be disappointed year after year when he never showed but while there may not be any satanic sightings inexplicable events have happened around stole cemetery in. It's church for example even though it doesn't have a roof the house of worship is said to always stay dry. Even when it rains people have reported seeing floating lights shadowy figures that vanish into nothing in rings of flame that appear out of nowhere these fires hovering the air. Even though there's no visible fuel source to keep them let you may be tempted to visit stole and see these phenomena for yourself if so you're out of luck rowdy. Crowds in supernatural enthusiasts. Repeatedly caused property damage forcing the owners to close the cemetery to the public in two thousand and two. The property managers demolished the church. It wasn't structurally sound and as far as we can tell. This destruction didn't unleash any demons upon the world which suggests the stories were just add stories but stole cemetery isn't the only alleged portal to the underworld in sunny southern california the la suburb of pasadena secret that surprisingly dark. The aptly named devil's gate dam was constructed in nineteen twenty two control flood waters coming down from the san gabriel mountains. The structure was named after a nearby odd-looking rock formation that vaguely resembles a horned devil face but before the dam was even built dark myths and legends suggested this stony shapes weren't the only demonic influence in the region in the nineteen forties. A man named jack. Parsons became convinced. That the devil's gate dam held other worldly power today. Corson's is famous for being one of the founders of the jet propulsion laboratory but he was also an occultist who belonged to alastair crawley's mystical secret society or does temporally orientalists. If you're interested we've covered croly and order tempe oriented extensively in our show secret societies but for our purposes. Here all you need to know is crowley was an extremely controversial occultist and magician once labelled the wickedest man in the world and he allegedly referred to the devil's gate dam as one of the seven gates of hell giving cronies association with the area. It comes as no surprise that parsons is said to have performed magic rituals at the devil's gate but some believe persons may have opened a portal to another dimension or to the afterlife itself. This sounds difficult to believe. But there's evidence to suggest that something strange was happening in around the dam in nineteen fifty-six a thirteen year old boy and an year old girl both went missing while biking through the area.

Now one piece of guidance walk away from something difficult. Give it a go because if you do you'll become an expert and be valued by your employer. Excellent. If you have the power of foresight and can change the entire wage all industry with one action of improvement. What would that action or Improvement be that's a difficult one one thing to change the Pearl industry. I'm not sure if I know a good enough answer that make I might have to think about that and come back to it. Okay. I'm going to I'm going to come back. I've been telling us we need to pay all governance and that stuck with me ever since and I know something with your your experience home will have something that's totally too many. Maybe I made it difficult by giving you just just one action, but let's go to this question and in hindsight, what's one thing you now know that you wish you would know and when you began your job. Career in payroll. I wish I'd known how exciting it could be initially because I kind of fell into it and had an aptitude for it. But my home ground is really i t but with an aptitude for the payroll aspects and complexity of law. I think Dominic US law reads like code and so if you can program know how to structure programs and if statements then law is exactly the same basis, so it doesn't do what you think. It should it does what the words say wage and programs are exactly the same with that really helped me at the front. I don't know. I think I've had a series of unfortunate accidents along the way that I brought great benefit and I don't regret any of that right?

"Only because I just find that sort of humor tremendous and Marvin the robot is someone we should not have loved that loved that. A lot of people there. You didn't lose me. You didn't lose me. So that's good. I enjoyed that very much last question for you back into their the depths of payroll questioning myself and what we're going to look forward to going forward if you didn't work in play well or should I say pay will all software development? What would you be doing? Well, I probably be working with young people wage always enjoys working with young people and developing them. I'm a qualified to youthwork going back some years ago, but the challenge I'd probably say is is enough money. Where can we see young people? Is it tough one size nail on that one, but saying that my all three of my children work in education these days. I'm not sure if I would had the qualifications to become a t e Yeah, because something education was different in the past and I did a-levels get my English level. It's kind of that type of background and how's the portion of doing my Master's later in life? Whereas these days University study is more common, but development of young people is always been important to me. So let's jump back and we talked a little bit about the major challenges legislatively that we say looking forward to for twenty Twenty-One. But what are some of the opportunities for the industry going forward? Okay, I think the industry needs a little bit of a shake-up and it's looking at how that's going to operate. So I'm hearing a lot of conversation around on paralon demands and it's something that we've played around with for some years. In fact in SD workspace solution is actually a real-time calculation basis. I think it's now dead. Roofing on to freedom of choice on individuals potentially choosing their real paydays dealing with different groups in in the past we've tended to have to deal with that by having different payrolls doing different things. There's an element of the technology these days is that really still necessary or can you actually build it? So that way you can react immediately when you merge companies do they really need to change pay days when you want frequency changes do they really need or do you put more choice now? I think there are a lot of baptisms round which kind of indicates their pay on demand, but they're really operating temporary loan or Advance type capability and there's elements of thinking actually let's move to a structure where the pie cycle can be what you choose the hmrc cycle can be whatever. Hm I see say it is and the business accounting cycle can be dead. Anything you like because it becomes much more transactional. So that's a little bit where my head goes. And then also this element of having things much more interactive. So people can do month for themselves. Now some of that will ring alarm bells for paraprofessionals cuz we like to check and verify Insurance. Correct..

"Policy people there to actually make it that ancient AE could work off October 2012 and it's generated since in the formation of a standard data standard called practice and also in regular consultation meetings with the DWP and dedication regulator a liaison officer. There is a chat called Andy Nichols who I know very well from the past as well used to be a an IPP or c i p p or b e p m a tutor off the old days. I used to come along across him at some of the weekends schools. But yeah, it's to promote pension a establishment now. Hopefully that explains those acronyms. It does I think it's great because you know, I've been in this industry for an awful long time. I'm not as I say a payroll processing professional but it's amazing to see there's so much going on, you know out of out of my eyes shot. If you like. I wasn't familiar with these with these kind of organizations or groups or or people of people coming together. It's for the betterment of the paper industry, which is fantastic and just goes to show the scale of it and actually, you know often were very focused on the administrative office safe side, and we for me it's easy to forget there's a whole software development side to it as well which absolutely needs to be considered that ultimately drives the administration side. So, yeah, it's exciting to to know what's going on in great to have you been part of that and what I'm sharing most of these committees as well, but you of course if you are also involved in the original hmrc Moses project, I know the SD works or one of the very first electronic exchange organization were heavily involved in the consultations and the design of real-time information with hmrc as well. I understand your specialism SD works now is related to compliance strategies in the apparel industry wage. So what do you think the big risk challenges are now for UK PLC and also maybe if you can if you could just explain to the listeners a bit more about what that visual hmrc Moses put it off and perhaps also U involvement.

"99 I'm saying from memory and Colin broad those sorts of characters that have been around for years and pair of software development at the BCS and being involved meeting with government officials to find out what changes were impacting. And for some reason it's just organically grown in the interactions with governments wage be a bit of a market to be honest Nick if someone wants help I'll usually volunteer. So for example, I'm I'm the chair of Peter District Scouts. So all the scouting in Pittsburgh. I share that District. I don't run The Scouting but I tear it and you know, I've been a lay Minister and a missionary before it seems chair of Irene Cara PCS, it seems like if someone saying oh we got anybody that can help hers. For some reason. I forgotten to step two paces back on my hand seems to go up automatically and I am dead. Helping I don't know if that helps a little bit on where the passion comes from. But when when I first joined sent file, which is now SD works. So Center file in those days was not WesBanco taken over by Ceridian and now is SD Works Belgium Group that's been going for 75 years in the payroll industry. So it's a little bit of a celebration there. One of the biggest birth is there are probably in the UK as well. When I first joined them. They kind of gave me a little task and and I thought, you know just got this little problem for you Simon that we think you'd be good at. Could you solve that and I did and then I we've got another one would you do that? And I did that as well. So if I talk about what those were one was directors National wage and the other was attachment of earnings orders. So they wanted an automated solution that would just come in do it and this is back in the eighties and there's an element of yeah, we did then we put them in the saloon wage. They were really well even work till today. So then realize that actually they were given me the deaf jobs that no one else wanted to do and I guess being the new boy you get that, you know, it's kind of get the two tone paint and took a two-time paintbrush type activity, but I did so I did find the two tone paint in the two tone paint brush and it does paint to tone up and down the wall. So I had a little bit of a knack for dealing with those sort of really complex areas and that's continued throughout but I found that actually to get on don't be afraid of difficult things off once heard an interview with Claire Rayner where she mentioned that she was a struggle to that time single mom desperately needed a job and went for an interview at the interview. She did really well and they offered to the post but one of the conditions that she knew how to operate a piece of machinery and she said she did but actually she dead..

If you haven't subscribed to that either check out Simon's website, which I'll include in the episode notes or our very own now Simon has been named in the reward Hall of Fame list since their Inception in 2009 and has won a number of awards for payroll services, and we're going to find out a lot more about his career during the course of this podcast. So sit back relax and welcome Simon Parsons to the show. How you feeling very good job. Snake and it's very welcome. There. It seems strange. Doesn't it? You think I'm still young. How can I have that sort of pedigree? Absolutely, right it definitely still young no need for God maybe two decades now. So I must be young as well along side you which is great. I mentioned in my intro that you of course were part of the original cohorts of the master of science in Pyromania. I know when I mentioned that there will be many many people in pain. Well, he won't be familiar with what that is necessarily. So I'd like to start with a simple question really which is what is your background? And how did you become involved in the page developer industry? Yes, my background is it but I could I could go back for the neck because my parents were conscripted into the army during the second world war and my father was a crack shot with gun. He could get any Targets volunteered wanted to join the RAF and fly, but he was blind for birth. So got positioned into the army Paycor that's where he met my mother and so you could say a genetic payroll is in my genes sort of thing.

"Michael Parsons would be great. I'd love to see him and the handle of Honolulu Blue. Jeff. I, Freddy. Yeah. I mean, Brad homes, especially in the scouting department for the Rams, huh? He's drafted some amazing defensive guys, especially out of the oven and first round pick and they got like guys like John Johnson, Great safeties and so like, like Ryan was saying, I think I'm gonna go defense. But more importantly it Z Do is Brad and just the general all the front office have a player in mind they like because that's that's important. If you have a player you really like, even if it means moving up. Go get him because this is the year. But if not, like I said, you have the seventh pick Michael Parsons. If he's there, I think our defense is definitely the way to start because We were God awful. I mean, Jared Goff. You're like we can just drop playmakers and say, Let's get it with your golf. Got a state matter? Yeah, This isn't mad, and we can't sign free agent. You know, defensive players, So I mean, let's be honest. We're to rebuild. So, like I said, go after defense. Um, you know, I heard reports of possibly trading down for other picks. I mean, if you can trade down and you have a guy on defense is still there. Why not? But like I said, Lou, go defense and unless you got a guy in mind, but I'm confident brain will figure that out, especially for the defense. I think linebacker is also gonna be a key factor in the off season, not just in the draft in free agency as well because Delights of I and J. R. Davis. They both looked like Rocky Balboa chasing the chicken around in that training montage to disgrace. I mean, both those and Dan Campbell as much as I love the guys intensity. I love Jared Davis. This guy's gonna be legit. Uh, man, we even say that for the last five years, Uh, maybe it's Patricia kind of ruined up. Who knows, But I would let you date this walk. It was up to me after the first five years, Tyler Weaver. Reliance you doing for agency at seven when I have a hot take, Really? Because I don't really I'm not too familiar with any names in the draft. But how about you? Go on, get a running back, established the running game and Nagy Harris, Right. So you could throw that big old bowling ball around the gold gold e don't know about pick number eight, making a running back the same.

They have patients where the young people don't however their patients will wane after one or two trips without getting up by.

Too late that fire they gotta catch something and You don't wanna take him out in this herbal weather conditions yet the weather good into everything your power to make sure that they get back in there and the reason people fish in continue to fish is they had a good experience and a good experience is something pulling on the end that the wire gets really the reason you're out there. That's what motivates people is the miracle of of this. It is amazing to me. My entire life in this business to see would fish can do this change. Somebody's like yeah. Yeah you know a kid sitting under edging blue gills and all of a sudden nowhere. A two pound bass runs out reminders. That back and grabs your bank. You never had. You're catching a six inch blue gills and having a ball in this best is your hook break where your life forever somebody had never muskie fish. You know they heard something about it.

That's the key is to get get a matching get a matching get them and then if they're really young after three hours to think to run into live whether you get a few fish rockets there fascinated with fish bouncing around in a live That's the key really.

And how to splice taped together at your rewind these stories and how you get into the game and enter the fishing industry and enter the sport different aspects that are available.

Fish was just the joy on your face. You were always you know chuckling and laughing and having a great time and we were just living vicariously through you as the wind. Blew about seventy miles an hour through cheyenne. But i mean it's it's just it. It really did make a big difference. And i do want to.

And and i know. He's very influential and big into the fishing businesses. Well but can you talk a little bit about what that was like raising your kids to be fishermen but also you know kind of raising them during that time that you know you're just so busy and you got all these things on with the with the fishing world and the fame that you had going on.

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

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

"Parsons record on which grand bars don't play. Yeah if you're gonna be ripped off by somebody. Richards is a pretty good choice. 'cause he's going to do a lot with it. I would say synthesized you know it's It's it's hard to say stole when you're talking about somebody with with kice ear regionality all that. I mean when. I listened to the eagles i think off. I think stole japan outright theft by people who don't have the anywhere near the quality of ideas at graham had a desperately tried to do it he was doing but you know even he were had ahead quite unequal relationship. It's it's a really fascinating relationship. And then i say in the book. He got chucked out of the villa. Chucked out of the exile sessions for two reasons. Nobody else could ever get out for in one was key thought. Graham was doing too much smack and is saying the book. keith. Richards is running your intervention. Urine troll cheaply and the other thing was that nick was jealous. Both of all the time. Keith was spending with grandma because all the girls were going after the dead already fired. Brian jones wants so grab but so he. He has struggled for awhile after this like he tries to get some sessions going with his friend. Rick grudge. he tries to get some sessions. Going with the former burge producer. Terry melcher but nothing really pans out until he signed with reprise records and he finds emily harris. He struggled profoundly a terrible time trying to kick smack he would kick it successfully and unsuccessfully and he wrote a couple of astonishing country song with regret. When i started the book had no idea had any connection to country but kiss the children is quite brilliant. And then he He discovered emmylou in this little club. He called her in total here. She was good which he come to dc play for him and it was raining and she had a child and she basically told him to get lost. She said i'm not driving forty miles. If you wanna see me come see me. And he did and he brought her to l. a. And from all accounts she was really the the iron fist in the velvet gloves at after a really embarrassing early sessions with the best possible session musicians elvis's band. She read graham the riot act and he cleaned up for those sessions in a way that he'd never had before the emmylou had some kind of Ability to take the moral high ground with grandma and get him to do it. He was supposed to do. Your store is always kind of fascinated me. Because there's you know when you get to hetero opposite sex people our. They're both beautiful. There's always this assure Lovers thing going on but that's never been substantiated anyway but clearly. There's a deep musical love and affinity that you can just hear when they sing together will greet. La author eve baboots said graham in that period. He was too high to make it with any bar and grandma's doing a lot of smack and a lot of barbs. And that's not good for your sex life and my take on it was grand never mistreated her. The way that he had treated pretty much everyone who was his lover and as best i could determine. I don't believe they were lowers. I believe that they were soulmates. Creative soulmates grandma's married at the time his wife was prodigiously jealous and possessive and kept a hawk eye on him and he was loaded all the time and it might theory which is only that. I have no proof performer. Near the other is that he honored what they were doing. Creatively too much to try and mess it up with sex. It definitely seems like he was on his best behavior. When he's around me us and it seems like she was just a upright professional gifted person who was only put up with bullshit because she was too naive to know better in this first radio and she's just walk in thinking this is how it's done and quickly figures out. No this is not how you do it. Just think about her. Will you know that she singing in some club in baltimore trying to support herself and her young daughter. She's you know basically la into a session with pretty much. The best session musicians in the world as she instantly looks around and sees what's wrong and takes commanded it just speaks volumes about herself. Regard her gives her maturity at the time. And also we keep coming back around to this theme. The musical potential she saw in graham. That made everybody put up with him and their harmonies are like no one else's harmonies. Obviously they're so beautiful and she thought it was worth it and she took a stand and let's hear some of those.
"parson" Discussed on Pantheon
"Gram parsons single. Monitor his early songs. And he later gifted to peter fonda the actor november nights and so graham has high school bands. One of it's called the village vanguard's in other And like you said they're. They're quite professional or semi pro and even attract the interest about mark grossman. But then he goes off to harvard after after spending a few years in private school in florida and he has another conversion experience at harvard. He's introduced to country music at the modern country music. Merle haggard in by cohen said that what are the bakersfield. Sound mean to graham. I think it meant to grab a kind of direct expression that the overly string produced a somewhat cheesy nashville sound did not provide. I think it also had no that really tight. Fender strat sound very very little decoration and the music was so much about pain about painted frustration. Which is kinda graham wanted to create and it headed directness of expression that the nashville sound was lacking also. And not so much merle. But you know. The buccaneers really rocked and they an extraordinary. The bucks had an extraordinarily high degree of musicianship. But they were also reductive you know. They took out everything. They compress their sound. They brought down to the essentials. And i think that's flipped graham strongly and he's one of these kids who goes off to college but with really no intention of getting a degree. He's there to do music and get involved in the boston area folk scene but as soon as he has that country music experience he put together a band and he moves to new york. Tell us a little bit about the international submarine band mark want will. Nobody could create horrible band name like graham. Everyone of his bands had had the worst possible names now. The international submarine band the flying burrito brothers. He just just couldn't couldn't name. Although i always liked gram parsons on the like. That was one of his bands like the fallen angels. I think the fallen angel sets a great name. I agree to the show. My kids have definitely been making fun of the band name so they agree to the international submarine band flying burrito brothers for about two fs could could be worse fact. I resisted the library brothers for years because of their name until somebody played for me He you know grandma. Acid went to harbored asset basically and to hang out with other smart kids. He never had any intention to class. He played a lot. There fell into the group and his ambition really hit and he knows musicians in classic form moved to new york rented a house live together did a lot of drugs and worked on their cell and his guitar player. John lewis was a quite a gifted player and really grounded in country music and he helped steer graham to country but they also played and this is the first sort of hints of grams. Cosmic american music is merging of these forms. They played a lot of straight up. Sold music too and they really likes music and there are a lot of funny stories about them going to these new york clubs at attempting to get gigs playing country music. Basically being laughed out of them. Yeah it's interested in social distance. The the social difficulties. That graham had bridging Himself to the country music. It's sunday really never succeeded doing his lifetime. Maybe a little bit any played texas at the very end of his life but otherwise Story of a series of brave attempts on graham part to reach out to the country audience. But let's talk a little bit about the move to la by gram. Parsons is a little bit of a jet setter even before His inside band or touring or anything and he goes off to. La manages to steal. David crosby's girlfriend towns. That store will grim had an really unjust an extraordinary gift for leaving. Whatever he was built he had built right when it got to the point where he could do something with it and he also had a gift for abandoning his bandmates in a heartbeat. And that's what he did. He fell for nancy. Parsons a like. La he he can hosts ninety. Ross then he moved to la. And as i said of the book she represents very interesting arc of la coolness because she had been steve. Mcqueen's girlfriend very hard at that time to find a bit cooler steve mcqueen but she left him for david. Crosby who incarnation. The new paradigm is perfectly as mcqueen. Incarnated the old paradigm and crosby was famous for his womanizing at his name. The birds was tripod and he pretty much any woman that he wanted. And then grandpa showed up suddenly. There was someone cooler. David crosby and that was a revelation to nancy how revelation to crosby ended announced his arrival in la in a particular way and so he brings the band or the members of the band that are willing to come with him out to la and gets to work. You know the gram. Parsons story isn't just a matter of blowing opportunities. He's also somebody who worked hard to create opportunities for himself and and really got. The international submarine abandoned a pretty good shape and his singing takes enormous leaps in this period. I mean he perfects that country voice in it's not an affectation. There's i don't think there's anybody you can hear. Gram parsons mature. Gram parsons singing and say. He's poser rachel dollars. Somebody that's impersonated. Identity. he's embodying this and like you said it's he found a venue to sing songs pain and anybody who has survived the suicide or suicide apparent in self destruction of the second pair by the time they're eighteen obviously has a right and a need to express that pain know no sooner. Get the ban to la workshops in the good shape and once again he drifts off in. It's only because lee hazelwood's girlfriends gets jones for this bandon signs into the label that they recorded at all. That's right and then if you if you listen to the band also the ones that did her best to make the record terrible and they had to fight or to the nail to get the sound they wanted and we're not always successful even though i think if you play their record now i think it's a really good record and has a quite good songwriting audit and very expressive vocals. And the song's have great hooks. You can see what a songwriter graham is. He does come into that country voice and to hear them till they created this record in spite of his girlfriend. Not with her. Yeah that's that's that's fair. Now footnote dinners. He get that recorded. then he's onto the next thing. He's met chris hills men. Who was david crosby's band rate at the time in the bird and radin on time. The birds fire david crosby and are looking for cells to fill in gram. Parsons initially get cited to be a piano player. I think roger gwen him jazz piano player original brief which i never believed that i just thought that was always nonsense gwen because grams perfectly competent piano player and he was a decent country music player but no one would ever higher gram parsons for his piano chops. Graham had a strong personality and great personal style and again the birds an empire in decline and they were looking for someone unconsciously looking for someone to bring a new ideas point them to re-inspire them. And that's what granted with the birds and to think about the guy showing up out of nowhere with his country band and joining. What was brief months ago. The biggest american band there was one of the most culturally important. Bad news leads. Winter bands stylistically influential fashion intellectual. As sunday. graham just shows that began and he's with them it. It speaks to his genius for moving into the scenes. He wanted an nba.
Widgetsmith: Pivoting Your App
"So there've been some big changes in widget smith recently. I was wondering if you could go into that a little bit. So when i made its myth. The sort of audience and the expectation i had for it were very different than the way the app ended up going where i was. I was making an app. That was very much for a very particular audience that it's like my kind of key audience that loves apple stuff and you know just enjoys like really getting in there and tweaking stuff and it's like i wanted to build that all these of nuance features and really get into the weeds. And that was the app that i built then. Of course the app ended have turned out that it was for those people certainly but it ended up that those people represent a teeny fraction of the actual user base at the application that actually the main use of the app and the like in fact the reason the apple is successful is because it had just enough kind of like teaming and aesthetic and color and font and all those kind of choices in it to allow people to express themselves with their widgets and that was not something i expected. That was not something that i ever really saw coming for the app. But that's sort of where the app absolutely went which was interesting. Because it meant that very quickly. I had to look at the backlog and the roadmap that i had built sort of for widget smith as i was going attended to i have a list of features of things. I want to build an modes. I want to support and at some point after to say this is version one. This is going to be version. One point one. And one point one version two of which smith those features are very much more like doubling down on kind of more nuanced and More and more niche kind of data sources or thing or features that would sort of make the app working in sort of more and more unique ways whereas ultimately what i footed site became clear what most people want. The app to do is to make their home screen. Look pretty and adding like some soup like okay making it so that you can accu can give it a url that downloads and parsons jason. And lets you visualize that. Jay ceann In an interesting way like that was one of the things on my version one point one roadmap like that feature is really cool and interesting and maybe one day i'll get to it but that is useless and confusing to ninety nine percent of the people who use which smith that is not what they're interested in and that's not at all what they want and so i found myself in this really funny place where i kind of had decided i was gonna you know how i was going to pivot the app essentially and pivot. Is that the fancy silicon valley. Word that i feel like is a bit overused but in this case i feel like it's very appropriate for that situation where you thought were building something and instead of it being the thing that you thought you were building the turns out the audience and the market for your app is very different and you kind of have to just rapidly. Turn your whole application around. 'cause i mean you don't have to. I could have just kept going with my crazy features and ignored the ninety nine percent of the people using the app who don't care or need those features but you know that that would feel foolish. That would feel like. I was missing out on a huge opportunity for the application for to grow frigid develop for a to have more staying power and retention with those people and so the one story short version is. I ended up essentially completely. Didn't throw away my roadmap and instead have been focused entirely on very aesthetic in teaming and designed based features for the app and so in version two of which it smith which came out a couple of weeks ago. is very much entirely focused now on the concept of themes and that you can build themes snap comes prebuilt with Dozens of different aesthetics. That are kind of easy to use the app. And then you can tweak and customize them and it totally changes thanks that concept and it's so far the responses have been positive for it and i think it's appropriate and it was just a really interesting thing to have to just decide that you know those plans i had for. This app are gone I'm having to think about what people are actually using it for and then the through that process and this is well the most the episode is probably as the interesting reality of how do i. How do i work out a what i should build. And then how do. I make that change in the app. In a way that doesn't alienate. People doesn't confuse people management Surf from there.
How different hospitals battle the pandemic to save lives
"Thanksgiving holiday arrives during an escalating calamity. More than one million people are testing positive for Corona virus every week. Now that is a high enough number that there is a good chance that some of your family friends or co workers. Among them. It's certainly been true for me these last several weeks if you want to identify and especially hard hit state, just throw a dart at a map because the odds are that any state you hit will qualify. This morning we visit three. Sebastian Martinez Valdivia is a K B A. And Missouri Blake farmer is with WPL and in Nashville, Tennessee, and Bram Sable Smith. Is with Wisconsin public radio. Welcome to all of you. Good morning. Thank you. Morning, and Bram. How widespread is this surge in Wisconsin, where you are? It's quite widespread, you know, by September, public health experts were really sounding the alarm about the rise. In cases we're seeing in the state initially were seen surges and cities where the university started located, but very quickly. The virus is rampant in communities. All over Wisconsin. As you know, Steve cases they're just the beginning of a covert search. So our hospital started filling up quickly. And maybe most concerned involves our death. Worried. We reported the record 104 deaths yesterday. We're losing about 52 people every day, on average and over 3000 people. Wisconsin have died of covered 19 so far, and I should also note we are seeing a slight downturn. Our cases are slightly our cases are dropping ever so slightly, But we're still very much at the top of the mountain and Steve the death rates very similar here in Tennessee. But cases are still climbing often more than 4000 Day. And As we found throughout this pandemic destined to lag those big spikes in new cases by a couple of weeks, So Tennessee's bracing for what could be to come because so far they're just has no sign existing of cases, letting up. Blake, over here in neighboring Missouri were in a similar ballpark in terms of new cases on deaths. But the really troubling trend has been in hospitalizations, which are high and continuing to rise on. Hospitals are really struggling with capacity and a lot of parts of the state. Well, let's talk a little bit more about hospitals or doing in Missouri, then Yeah, well, one of the big problems is a lot of the smaller rural hospitals that traditionally transfer patients toe urban and metro areas for intensive care are really struggling to find beds because those larger hospitals are already full. S O. For example, Cocks Health, which is in Springfield, the third biggest city here in Missouri, has expanded its hospital capacity multiple times over the past nine months, but it's still had to turn people away. Steve Edwards is the CEO there. So we will have added 147 bed capacity, which is probably bigger than the Average hospital state, Missouri, he says the hospital keeps hitting what it would have considered a worst case scenario every couple of weeks. But adding rooms isn't really the half of it the biggest challenge, according to Edward to staffing, so training staff to care for covert patients, and then the draining work of actually caring for them. So that's the crisis in Missouri, Bram Sable Smith, Let's go back to Wisconsin Howard doctors trying to keep up where you are. You know, October the state we converted our state fairgrounds into what's called an alternative care facility to handle the excess capacity. We have so about 89% of the hospital beds available in the entire state for being occupied right now, in some regions, that's higher. At the alternative care facility. There's only nine patients right now, though. That's in part because it's voluntary to go there. It's also because it's where patients will go to recover kind of after they've cleared a hurdle in their covert treatment. The idea behind that is To free up resource is inside the hospitals to treat on influx of patients. Researchers like ICU beds that are in very short supply here and brand that the corps of Engineers build alternative care sites here in Tennessee is well, but increasingly, there's a concern about having the staff to open them. And a big reason for that is that so many nurses and doctors air out themselves with Kovar 19 or because they have to quarantine Well, Blake. What are hospitals in Tennessee, saying about that? Well, they're really starting to sound the alarm. In a way we haven't heard for a long time. Hospital administrators have wanted to make sure people knew that they would be able to handle the usual patients along with covert, and that's just less. So now. Dr Katrina Green works in an HCIA emergency room here in Nashville. We're worried about what the delays and care will mean for our patients, and I am personally terrified in my hospital. Being full could result in someone dying in the waiting room. The situation has become particularly severe in parts of Texas as well like El Paso and love IQ. For now that they're able to transport covert patients to other parts of the state. But there's going to be a time likely when those hospitals air capacity to You know, I spent some time last week and one of the five covert units at the University Hospital here in Madison, Wisconsin, where I live. I spoke to Mary Lowe. She's a nursing assistant in the unit. She's been there since the pandemic began. This has been going on for a long time. And right now it doesn't feel like there's an end in sight. Even though there will be a time it doesn't necessarily feel like that right now. You know that unit as 28 beds and they've been consistently full and she says, it's it's exhausting and remember, the whole reason for shutdowns early on, was to prevent hospitals from being overrun will now in a lot of these states like ours, Those restrictions are long gone, and hospitals are now nearing the edge of that cliff. But political leaders are really finding it hard to go backward after lifting restrictions, months, Okay, granted, that's granted. That's true. But suggestion haven't some political leaders at least faced pressure to approve more safety measures. Yeah, There's definitely been pressure here in Missouri. The State Hospital Association actually sent a letter last week to a Republican governor Mike Parson, urging him to kind of issue one of those statewide mass mandate, saying the Wolf is at the door. But like a lot of Republican governors, he's rejected that call just to the north of us, though. In Iowa, the story's a little different. So Governor Kim Reynolds, there, also a Republican, was initially against the mask mandate, and she even said that city's couldn't issue their own mandates back in the summer, But she recently reversed course. I would have seen one of the biggest surges in cases and hospitalizations in the country per capita. I will has roughly half the population of misery, but it's almost in the same ballpark in terms of new cases. S O earlier this month, Reynolds did end up issuing a statewide mass mandate as well as some restrictions on public and private gatherings, with exceptions for some businesses and religious services.
A Look into Broadway Hit 'David Byrne's American Utopia'
"David Burns American Utopia is a grand and glorious plea for Human Connection. By Stephanie's a carrick. Sometimes to make art, you've got to build art to layer ideas, colors, values, and textures. Until you've shape, the thing that says what you want to say, David Burns American Utopia Spike, Lee's grand and glorious filmed record of the hit Broadway show of the same name coming to HBO October. Seventeenth is art that has been built a work of great joy inexpressive Nece Tower of song with room for everybody the music some numbers drawn from burns twenty eighteen album American utopia others from. His body of work with talking heads and one a cover of Janelle. Monet's two thousand, fifteen protests anthem hell you tom bowed feels fresh and familiar at once inclusive but also mildly explosive there's an urgency to it as if burn and his troupe of eleven, musicians and dancers were staking ground in a battle we shouldn't even have to fight the idea is that to survive to live in any meaningful way, we must stay connected. It's a principal so glaringly simple at its radical. Burn is an admittedly weird ambassador for the idea of connection. He isn't what you'd call a naturally warm presence at least not in Earth terms even at age sixty eight, he's still like an. Learning. The rules of the planet his awkwardness is his brand but his desire to connect is robust and had vitalize is everything that happens onstage during American Utopia. no-one initial has one job. The musicians are also dancers and singers. Their instruments are strapped to their bodies untethered to any bulky sound equipment, which leaves them free to move and dance around the stage in a series of elegantly orchestrated numbers with burn off at the center though sometimes lurking at the edges like living fringe of the proceedings, the choreography is by dance veteran antibeach Parson all the performers including burn where identical lunar grey suits and all are barefoot. The stage is bordered on three sides by a Shimmery chainlink curtain the grand scheme is. Simple yet never chilly. This is a setting a world where certain essential problems have been worked out creating the space and freedom to play, and so even the songs every longtime burn or talking heads Fan knows well, like this must be the place naive melody a moonlit cottage in ballad form or the Wrigley waggling noodle dance. Slippery people take on new shapes and new life between numbers burn addresses the audience directly spinning amusing tales about where these songs came from. He wrote is Zimba with its lyrics by German Dada poet. Hugo. Ball to respond to a challenge thrown down by his friend and collaborator Brian Eno or us to fulfil our civic responsibilities. He uses lighting trick to show how badly the citizenry is represented when only twenty percent of the population votes and as a prelude to the shows Shiver Inducing version of hell you tom about he explains that he asked Monet's permission before venturing to cover the Song Burns band here. Is racially mixed, but he himself is very, very white. No wonder he approached with caution but he and his band present the song and invocation written in two thousand fifteen for all of us to remember the names of murdered black citizens among them Eric Garner Trayvon. Martin and Amatil. With the synthesis of respect and bristling anger it demands. This number also represents one of the few times league cuts away from this show to flash larger than life portraits at the. Victims, often held by a family member on the screen. It's an act of boldness that works as for burn. He is as ever a wildly and captivating showman though his hair is now snowcap wide his dance moves in changed over the years he's still favors angular Turkey jerky movements like the folding and unfolding of corporate tres ruler, which are often mimicked to grand effect by the dancers around him. But as dazzling as he is, you can take your eyes off him.
