"Supreme Court also delivered a blow As it goes to the former president because he wanted to block White House records from the House committee that's investigating the January 6th attack and he was unable to do so So this could also set a precedent for future presidents as well when it comes to other issues in terms of how broad executive privilege actually is and what it can actually cover Francesca I have to ask you about Rudy Giuliani the news this week that the Trump lawyer was directly involved in putting together an alternate slate of electors to certify the 2020 election for Trump At this point is re litigating 2020 doing more to help or harm the Republicans do you think We'll even Republicans would say that they do not think that the baseless election stolen claims are helpful to them And when you look at states like Georgia where that arguably and they would say even in their view cost them the election They're not eager many Republicans that is to revisit some of those election claims If you even look at the Virginia gubernatorial election that took place a few months ago and gone youngin he also distanced himself in ways from the former president did not appear with him while campaigning And so one of the things that we'll all be watching this year is how closely Republicans run with the former president even those who have been endorsed by him when you consider that he could come to their state and repeat some of those things and everyone saw what happened in the Georgia runoff elections Jesse I'm curious your thoughts on re litigating 2020 Will that do more to harm or help the Republicans from your view Well the Republican Party will tell you that they don't want to do it but Donald Trump certainly does He has grabbed onto the 2020 election as an issue that he thinks will bring his voters whether they're Republicans or not They'll bring his voters out to either a give him money be show up at a rally or see vote for the people he tells him to So I think we'll hear more and more from it from Donald Trump because that's the one thing that he thinks will bring his voters out Now will those voters end up voting for the rest of the Republican slate We don't know But he will keep pushing on that because he's someone has told him and he thought it thought that that's a winner for him So he'll keep pushing on it Well they will help everyone.

"Often angry constituents. This was a brexiteer, senior member of the party. He had stood for the leadership in the past. This guy stood up at the back of the House of Commons and quoted one of the most famous speeches in British political history by an MP called Leo amory that was aimed at Neville Chamberlain in 1940 when his policy of appeasement had collapsed. So amory says to Chamberlain, in the name of God, girl, and it's of this moment where Chamberlain's authority is performatively gone. Now David Davis had stood up and quoted that speech to Boris Johnson. So I will remind him of a quotation altogether too familiar to him of Leo ei Marie to Neville Chamberlain. You have sat there too long for all the good you have done in the name of God go. And it was a dramatic moment because people weren't expecting it. You weren't expecting that to come from his own benches from people who should be his supporters. You obviously expected the Labor Party opposite him to be pushing at him. But this was a dramatic moment in the same way that amory's was from the conservative benches as well to a conservative prime minister. I must say to the rider in the general, I don't know what he's talking about, but what I can tell him, I don't know what rotation.
Savannah Guthrie and Kamala Harris Exchange Remarks Over Democrats' Voting Bills
"Whether our elections will be legitimate We've heard it before but not from this president Is he really concerned that we may not have fair and free elections The president has been consistent on this issue and the issue at hand the issue I was there last night In the chamber of the Senate and the issue is that there are two bills the John Lewis Voting Rights Act and the freedom to vote act That have been the solution that has been offered to address the fact that around our country states have put in place laws that are purposely making it more difficult for the Americans Now here are the question would be follow up What is it exactly that the states have put in place that are intended to prevent minorities from voting What exactly is it And if that's the case head of Barack mailhouse Benito Obama get elected Twice Over two white guys two very white guys as a matter of fact Go ahead Laws which will be felt by at least 55 million Americans regardless of their party affiliation their race their gender or their geographic location Well the two points that we were doing but it's the bills were debated and they didn't have specific finish But the specific question if you don't mind does he think now that these bills haven't been passed that the 22 midterms won't be legitimate or fair or free Let's not conflate issues So what we are looking at and the topic of so much debate last night was that we as America can not afford to allow this blatant erosion of our democracy and in particular the right of all Americans who are eligible to vote to have access to the ballot unfettered

"Invested as much in public education as we should have because we've always had kind of a private notion of children Your kid is yours and totally your responsibility We haven't had a very collective notion of these are our children So part of it is we have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families and recognize the kids belong to whole communities Once it's everybody's responsibility and not just the households then we start making better investment That's not a joke folks It's not the Babylon bee That was a real 2013 MSNBC that's been making a wait for making its way around You see the great reset again Year zero We get your kids we start from scratch detach your kids from any sense of the wonders of the United States and freedom of liberty and start at year zero Once you get to the tabula rasa the blank slate year zero we can mold them however we see fit and make sure their allegiance isn't a family or to God where a source of objective rights and values come from and that the only small law rights they get they get from the state and they pledge allegiance to the state only Do you see now why these things are competition Why is it that BLM in their original manifesto before they tried to hide it Had an open war declared open war on the nuclear family Why Have you ever asked yourself that Black Lives Matter a known communist group that uses terrorist tactics in the streets Why is it that the lefties protected them and in their original manifesto they openly called out the nuclear family Because their communists they seek absolute state power and the families and obstacle to getting there Families a source of objective values family teaches you lessons about faith about your own freedom your own self worth They don't want you to have self worth They think you're smelly deplorable Walmart shoppers They've said it That's all they care about is getting you to believe you're the morons and that they're the smart ones What other way would they convince you to forfeit your individual freedom over to them unless you thought you were a genuine idiot And got you to believe the same That's why they're behind their war on family They were on religion is because religion is a source of objective values as well God given rights can't be taken away Don't you find it odd that there are war with every organized religion the communists Everyone The Chinese Communist Party is currently imprisoning and torturing Muslim Uyghurs in China Is it because they're uniquely anti Islam No they're anti religion The economy Communist Party's done the same thing to the Catholic Church And to Jews Because it is a source of competition for them and power If you find power and faith and you believe others have God given rights then you don't believe those rights are granted by the state It is no more complicated than that Communists don't want competition That's the great reset Started year zero detached people from their history and their family and mold them into believing foolishly At the source of their prosperity will be a government bureaucrat.
The Relationship Between Democrats and Blacks: Abuse by Neglect
"And I want to talk today about the black vote. That's an interesting article by a guy named darville Moro. I don't know this guy, so the article I saw on newsweek and at the end it says the darvi morrow is the CEO of the SFC B radio network co host of the outlaws radio show. But it's a thoughtful article, and it says that, look, blacks have been beholden to the Democratic Party. Every two years every four years the Democrats show up in our communities, he says they scare us into voting for them and not quoting him. And then after we do disappear and leave our communities in exactly the same condition they found them. So Democrats do this. And we know they do it, but interestingly, he says they're black snow. That they do it. He describes a relationship between the Democrats and the blacks as, quote, abuse by neglect. So they're being abused. They're harvested for their votes. And then they're neglected. And so says mister morrow, there is quote a historic precedent for a realignment. He points to the earlier realignment, blacks used to be, of course, in the 19th century, and early 20th century Republicans, then they began to move over to the Democratic Party really starting, not in the 60s, but with FDR, and then that trend accelerated in the 1960s and certainly for the past half century blacks have been loyal Democrats, Republicans have been lucky to get ten or even ten or 15% of the black vote. But, says morrow, black discontent is now aimed at the left. Black snow, who's been running black communities, not Republicans. So it becomes increasingly abstract and somewhat absurd to conduct this theater in which you invoke the bad Republicans, what bad Republicans, the fact that the bad Republicans who freed the slaves, the bad Republicans who fought against lynching that was being supported by FDR FDR was blocking anti lynching laws. The Republicans who fought against the democratic segregationists who were holding up voting rights legislation. So this is all fiction, but it's a fiction that's been developed in academia, it's promulgated through the media.
Fresh update on "party." discussed on Mike Gallagher Podcast
"Lots to talk about here. Got an open phone line for you. If you want to jump on board and join us, you know, also in our world it feels a lot of Republicans, a lot of conservatives. Irate about Liz Cheney's blind hatred for Donald Trump leading her to become the darling of the left. Rocky in north haven Connecticut disagrees with me. So let's bring rocky into the mix. Hey, rocky, welcome to Vegas. How are you? I'm good, Mike. How are you? I'm doing great. Appreciate your call. What's up? Well, I listen to you. You know, I want in a while, but today I'm sitting in my tax focus cigar reading The Wall Street Journal. And you're talking about Liz Cheney. And I just want to ask you, why is it that it seems to me that if you're not 100% with the tribe, any try? Whether Democrat or Republican, there's no room for any descent. Now, a Liz Cheney's voting record as a Republican. She's voted with Donald Trump's agenda. You know, like a 100%. Sure. Now she happens to disagree with, you know, she feels that this January 6th incident was more than just a few people, you know, getting out of hand. And I can't see why she can't be why she has to be so denigrated. All right. You know, constantly. So let me respond. Let me answer your question. You say if somebody isn't with somebody else a 100% of the time, well, now what happens when a Republican is against the tribe, the Republicans a 100% of the time. In other words, when Liz Cheney turns on the Republican Party the way she has. When Liz Cheney goes after and whether we like it, whether you like it or not, Donald Trump is still the titular head of the Republican Party. Donald Trump is very likely going to be on the ticket in 2024 and she hates that. She wants to stop him at all costs. We don't know if she hates that. She hates the fact that this insurrection might have been something that was planned, that it might have been something more than what the Republicans are saying it is. Right. Right. So let's look at that possibility, rocky. You sound like a reasonably intelligent guy, and I appreciate your willingness to engage with me. You think Donald Trump orchestrated riots on the capitol? Do you believe that do I believe that? Do you believe it? I don't know a 100%, but I would leaning towards it. I think leaning towards it. The Trump was in The White House conspiring to have people riot and violently assault cops. You think Trump was totally impossible? You see that? Yes. They're totally impossible. Yes, I absolutely do. But I also have to point out and I say this with respect. You certainly aren't a Trump supporter or are you? Don't hold back. I'm not a register. Vote for. Who'd you vote for? Who'd you vote for in 2020? Huh? Why voted for Trump? You voted for Trump. Because I can't stand Hillary Clinton. Gotcha. I got you. So you voted for you voted for Donald Trump. To me, it was a choice of two evils. Right. I got it, but what about, what about 2020? You didn't answer 2020. Who'd you vote for? Donald Trump or Joe Biden? I voted for Biden. There you go. So that's okay. I mean, listen, I'm not trying to fault you, but you're a Biden voter. And you got to accept that you got to own that and that kind of perhaps that kind of illuminates happen. But does that mean I should be attacked into the ground? No. No, but no, but here's what but I'm glad you used that analogy about being attacked and driven out of the public square. Do you think somebody who is standing around who went to the capitol on January 6th should have their life destroyed if they weren't engaged in any violent activity. They didn't trespass. Do you know how Liz Cheney's committee is ruining people's lives rocky? I think if they went there, maybe they deserved their lives ruined. Well, if they went there, you know how many thousands of people went there to hear? You know how many thousands of people went 30 here, Donald Trump speak and didn't do anything wrong? What they went there? You don't think those people have a problem? Well, a lot of people didn't think they have a problem, have a problem now because they've got the select committee, subpoenaing their records and banging on their door and knocking down doors. Listen, we could argue about that all day long. I'm grateful for your transparency. I don't.
Government Files Sentencing Recommendations for Brandon Straka in Connection to Jan. 6
"Today is sentencing day for Brandon struck the founder of the welcoming movement. This is a very important movement that has been a sort of vehicle for a lot of Democrats and leftists to move right to move to the Republican Party to become conservatives. And ASRock is a young dynamic, kind of a charismatic guy quite a character. A few years ago I took part in an event with him that he sponsored in Portland, kind of a walk away event. And antifa showed up. And the antifa guys I think brought their sticks and I think they thought they would cause trouble. They'd already vandalized the venue tried to break the lock and so on, but of course this event had plenty of security, had armed guards, and once the antifa guys saw the guns, you know, they had sticks, the security people had guns, they basically decided to quit, and they began to sulk and scowl and one guy took out a flute and began to play it. The whole thing had a surreal quality, but I remember it vividly. Now the government's sentencing recommendation. Now Brandon struck pleaded guilty to causing a disturbance something that he actually didn't even do. But we're going to get to what he actually did. But the government wants to sentence him to four months of house arrest. So kind of an effect lock him up in his own house with an ankle monitor and so on. Three years of probation. 60 hours of community service and $500 of restitution. And now, when you think about this recommendation, it doesn't seem in of itself something unendurable. In fact, Brian and straw call me a few days ago and he's like, what do you think about this? And I go, well, the sentence itself is stupid. Obviously, it's not a crime. It's not a, it's not a grievous suffering to be confined to your own home. I go you can be very effective. What really was worrying brand in the most was the fact that the left and here I'm thinking of an article in political magazine that Brandon alerted me to. Trump allies struck as provided potentially significant information. And if you read the article, it looks like prosecutors are giving branded straw a good deal. A kind of a light sentence because he has sort of spilled the beans. He is a sort of ratted out Trump is right about other conservatives. Now this is nothing could be further from the
NPR Stands by Report as Three SCOTUS Justices Refute Gorsuch-Sotomayor Feud
"Do you see how NPR lied about the Supreme Court? NPR's Nina totenberg reported that justice Sotomayor is having to be forced to work remotely all because of the stubbornness of justice Gorsuch. Sotomayor, according to the report, has asked Gorsuch to put his mask on as the Supreme Court is in session. He is reportedly refusing forcing the. Immunocompromised Sonia Sotomayor to work from home. That's according to NPR. Turns out, they're all denied. All of the parties involved said it's absolutely false. It's a blatant lie. So to my or denied it, Gorsuch dyed it, denied it, they're all denying it. They're saying it isn't true. What an NPR do? Double down. They stand by their reporter, because after all, Nina totenberg has been around for a hundred years and she wouldn't make something like that up. Another reason to hate the mainstream media and to despise the fact that you and I help fund
Bipartisan Senate Bill Wants to Break up Big Tech
"Not a fake news story is a bill being pushed by senator Klobuchar of Minnesota and grassley of Iowa that would lead to the breakup of big tech. Now I'm very ambivalent about big tech. I want an American national security representative in every board meeting. I want to know what they're doing and what they're making. I'm not sure we need to break them up. You are a national security specialist. What do you think about this bill? Well, look, I wrote about this in The Wall Street Journal about ten days ago. And I understand people are based are very angry at big tech companies. And they've got good reason to with censorship and privacy issues, the fact that the president Trump was taken off some of the social media platforms and yet terrorists and autocrats are left on. That's terrible. We need to deal with it. But we're on the verge of this Klobuchar bell of giving the Chinese Communist Party a huge gap. I mean, they can't believe it. They're watching us. This is an own goal as big or bigger than the WTO

A Troubling Trend Facing the Future of America
"Girls age 27 and 30 living in California. I can attest to the fact that the supply of quality eligible men is in short supply. Not for the lack of offers. My girls are not married. But sure would like to be. Married with kids and WK. Is that what that means? I've never seen that acronym before. I would love for their status to change, but a whole bunch of men do not have the same goals, lack ambition and are looking for either a someone to support them in every sense of the world or be a good time no more. I see that a lot. I see the feminization of the American male, where the woman, the female has to basically babysit the man, you see in this Conor? And it creates super unhappy women and also women have to become masculine, that's what college does is it creates basically tells these women, you should go succeed in the corporate world and order to do so you have to become super masculine, which also means you're going to become miserable. I mean, just the way it is. And some women, you know, end up liking it. Most women don't, honestly, and the entire kind of trajectory that we have is one that unfortunately instills weakness in men and unhappiness in women. So the brookings institution actually wrote about this. They were left wing think tank. And they talked at length about America's electoral future, the coming generational transformation. Says demographics are not destiny, but steady and predictable changes to the electorate play an important role in defining the landscape of American politics. And it talks about here that homeownership is going down. That having children is going down and marriage rates are going down. That inherently creates a more left wing society or a more Democrat society or a socialistic society when you have 33 year old women with college degrees and they're 33 years old and they don't have children and they're not married. What do you expect when all of a sudden there is a political party that comes out and says we can reappropriate the money we can redistribute the money I should say? It's rather appealing. And this is something

Former Deputy Assistant to President Trump Ja’ron Smith on Meeting People Where They Are
"You came from a background in which you had been told, you know, as you said, you know, Republicans were these awful, terrible, you know, no good people. And yet you were open enough to actually have a questioning mind that you went in. I mean, JC watts outstanding individual, you went in, you saw others, you were working with and growing. I think we're missing that in our younger generation now. There's the partisanship that you and we'll get back to going to The White House in a minute, but that partisanship that you sing growing and I have seen growing over the years. Do you think that's causing more and more people to shy away or just be hardened in their position to where they won't listen to the other side? It's a little bit of both, you know, this guy named Jonathan high UVA professor wrote a book called the righteous mind, and I think that it would have focused on as particularly on politics as that once people attached to a particular ideology depending on how you talk to them about it. Sometimes they can be hard and more if you push back on their individual beliefs. I think that as a party, we need to do a better job of course at communicating with individuals that's outside of the tent and teaching them our values and part of that is meeting people where they are. You know, I spend a good amount of time doing that, you know, I don't, you know, it's kind of like I went to divinity school and I got a master's in divinity. And I took a class called prophetic ministry. And what it is is you usually try to meet people and talk to them without using religious language that may push some people away. And that's meeting them with where they are.
Democrats' Policies Will Be the Reason for a Republican Takeover
"Now, last night, I don't know if you're going to be on special report tomorrow night and going back tomorrow. But last night, I got to point out that key numbers are 28 and 14. 28 Democrats are heading for the exits in the house. 14 points swing in the direction of the Republicans in Gallup. And a 5.7% lead in the generic ballot for Republicans. What is the biggest source? Or what are the many sources of the demise of the house of Pelosi and the fall of Joe Biden? Well, I keep thinking back to what we were told prior to a year ago, that by electing Joe Biden and other Democrats that adults would be in charge that our policies would improve that the health of our country would improve literal physical health, but economic health, our foreign policy stature. And I think what we've all experienced over the last year is regardless of where we were on the issue of Biden versus Trump. We know that we were completely lied to about the quality and competence. Not just Biden, but democratic policy making, in general, they have control of not just the presidency, but the Senate and the House. And so what we're getting is pure unalloyed democratic policy that doesn't have much disagreement on the democratic side of things, Democratic Party side of things. And people are not liking it very much at
UK Conservatives Set to Show Boris Johnson the Door
"I'm reading from the telegraph moments ago further members of the 2019 red wall intake of conservative members of parliament have submitted letters of no confidence in Boris Johnson this morning. One MP told the telegraph, a 11 letters had been submitted to the 1922 committee, and that comments overnight from ministers attacking them as fools was the final straw senior minister's common saying we were fools have taken most over the edge. They would have done better to reach out rather than lash out. While party whips thought the number of letters of no confidence was in the 20th that figure has now written by as much as a third
Jack Brewer Explains Why He Became a Donald Trump Supporter
"I'm watching Fox News this afternoon. And it's the Martha McCollum show, and she has a former NFL football player on named brewer. What's his first name? Jack brewer. And the following exchange takes place. I mean, I was ostracized. I was called names. I mean, my family was targeted. Just because I supported Donald Trump. And since then, it's like more and more people have continued to start to support the things that Donald Trump stands for. But more specifically, the things that people that are seeking righteousness stand for. And I think the educational process is continuing for so many Americans. And I think this COVID-19 pandemic has exposed exactly what's going on with our government and not getting after the root cause. People want you to get at the root cause of issues. And the root cause of issues, particularly when it comes to minorities and African Americans is fatherlessness. And Democratic Party policies excuse me, are the ones that are at the root of this, they promote it. They don't stand against it, and I think people in this nation see that. They want our children all to love this country and love America.

I was just snapping. Sorry to the listener. I don't know. I do think he seems like he's like a fun time so i'll give him that. Seems like john how what makes then his nakedness. I mean nakedness is a big part of that but i just like. He's like down for whatever he's like older. He seems like he's fun to be around. I can't imagine having like a super serious conversation. Although when he like broke it off with demi. I feel like he handled it really. Well yeah she was not handling it. Well heard sort of like continual. Please let's go to the boom. Boom room is incredibly horrible. And demi finds some more worth in herself sacks like that's felt like it was just so hard to watch and then when he ends things with her and she starts insulting murray and like calling her like centered and stuck up. And it's just like it's not really marris fall like this is too i mean demi the one who tell you this is how how it goes and also. That's just not the way the way to do it. I feel like that's not gonna help you win this guy over even if like you're feeling that way it's just not a good strap awesome like do you want the guy to change his mind because you just bashed the girl or do you just pick you just want to be picked. I get her being upset. Obviously i also like parties like she really enjoys sex. Had no problem do what you wanna do. I would just think at a certain point him saying no. Maybe i someone else yeah. There's no. I'm not trying to slot shame at all. I support people who love sacks having sex whenever they want. but i'm just saying as a tactic to keep him on on right is just made me sad and also like you're saying like instead of talk like sort of like making herself in great and putting yourself in the best light possible she is trashing bari. Trying to use boom boom room. And that's just like sad to watch. But that i think that's what i was like. I was when i was watching it. I was like. I can't tell if she's just like this is like her last like try. It's like a little desperate to do this Or she's just like. I really liked to have executive number one again. So i'm like i can't tell so. She really likes doing it. Great if not and you think this is going to keep him. I promise you the best sex in the world's not going to change a guy's mind he would enjoy it one more time though he might he might take you up on the movie rumor time but he's not going to change his mind. Yeah and he also obviously like mari from the beginning but just yeah got confused and didn't really want to chase after her. Maybe by the way is being chased. I really like mari except for her. Like one and a half episodes of like spiral actually really like murray. And i think she's. She may be like the prettiest person to me on the beach. I think she's she's pretty. She is absolutely beautiful. This is a very beautiful group of women. I think they're actually. They are very good looking girls. Like they're all way above average right. Bodies. yeah also a lot of different styles to which i which i enjoy. I dunno. it's like a wide range but yeah everyone is. I would really appreciate like a little bit. A thickness sure michio. I like like. I think the girls are pretty also in. So i'm like it'd be great to have just like you know sprinkler. Few murray's got a little bit out. Sure have you seen onto talk now. I haven't as not. She's she's very thin. I mean they all at. That's seeing her talk. Because on the show i do think she's probably one of the thicker. Ones is a great way. And then i started talking. I was like that's how small the other girls are. Yeah i know. She's this if this is her and she's like the girl i think is thicker. I took a picture with hannity and it was a bad angle but moreover like i'm a normal sized human and she's a bachelor sized human and it was just like such an appalling photo. How burma burn. She's for yes she's tall. Wow she really looks tall. I think that She her proportions maker look that way. I don't know but yeah. I just back to that point. That isn't major criticism on the bachelor. Which i think is really valid. Which is that like. They have no size representation whatsoever. Even if they're improving sabre city.

"Them vote. is healthcare you. Would you would think oh healthcare. Well we've got a universal healthcare. Everything's good well. it's not it's not great and it's not. It's not perfect. And i think a lot of people also coming out of the pandemic. I'm not sure we're out of it. But you know coming off the back of it Have thought more about healthcare. Perhaps than they have in the past and again in this election healthcare has already started to pop up and emerge as first of all an important policy issue where the main parties really differentiate themselves. And i think contrast is what elections are about and this issue is a good one because you can really look at things and say oh. That's quite different. So here's where. I feel more aligned I'll just go through it quickly. And then we'll talk about sort of how it flared up this week politically so the conservatives promised to meet with premiers within the first one hundred days to strike in your health agreement which is what premiers have been calling for frankly from from justin trudeau and in erin o'toole case he would boost the annual growth rate of the health transferred to six percent And that would be about sixty billion dollars over ten years. Not really clear how he would do that yet. Because we haven't seen as costing but that's the overall promise The liberals want to invest billion dollars is what they've promised on top of the four billion that they invested recently to try and eliminate weightless to Encourage the hiring of more doctors and nurses and nurse practitioners and the and ep to want to Work with provinces to increase access to primary care And want to make sure that Other things like pharma care is is introduced. A national farmer care plan which the liberals promised in the last election. They've made a little bit of progress on it but The not too far down the road and a dental care plan. So that's sort of the broad strokes of it but what became fascinating this week in my mind was the positioning around whether there is a place for private healthcare in this country to facilitate Access to to private to healthcare overall. That could deal with waiting. Lists and other things Let let me play. That clip of erin o'toole just to position us on on that issue. I view innovation as a good thing. I trust the premier's to do what is best for patients. In their provinces if saskatchewan when alberta ontario or quebec want to innovate to provide better healthcare. I support that. Why because it gives canadians more choice. The more choices canadians have in health. Care the better. It reduces wait times and it frees up. More money to reinvest in healthcare should say that mr tool that was erin. O'toole the conservative leader. Who also said you know. I believe in universal healthcare. It is fundamental to how canada works. But what did you make of that. Comment that clip. I mean i'm so interested in the story because the something about the healthcare discussion that almost in this country anyway. That almost skips the intellectual part of the conversation and we go directly into the emotional. It's like the very possibility of raising private healthcare. The very possibility of raising choice in healthcare all those words seemed to trigger an anxiety at least in some voters that parties can then choose to exploit never whatever ways they find possible and so. That's kind of a refined ourselves this week right because this whole thing started because the liberals put out this clip it was tweeted by christopher freeland and the clip was o'toole explaining that there are ways to find Public and private. You know synergies was his phrase in canadian healthcare. Well the thing is twitter ended up labeling that clip as manipulated media because there was the rest of the clip. Where we're o'toole says that it's still really important to maintain universal access all of that background to get to this place where healthcare becomes this wedge issue. That's really fun to talk about. Because even making room for the possibility of private healthcare in this country becomes an anxiety and oh to specifically was talking and praising to sketch wins approach to is. There's a huge backup in getting an mri and saskatchewan sort of established a system. Where you can go and pay for an mri and o'toole is calling that a form of innovation. It's not really clear whether the saskatchewan plan has worked or not wait. Times are have not decreased but is just the idea of opening of this. Discussion has created a whole new wedge to talk about. Yeah at a time when frankly they've all got you know good ideas about how to deal with healthcare and trying to meet the challenges. I think that people feel in their lives which are very often access to doctors family doctors and wait times getting treatment for things so they've all got these ideas but instead of talking a lot about these ideas we've spent a lot of time talking about healthcare as a wedge issue as you say and whether there should be a place for the use of private companies in our public health care system and in the clip we played of mr tool. It certainly sounds as though he's open to that that that's a conversation. He wants to have the problem when you when you say that though is that you expose yourself to a political attack about as you say an issue that canadians can be quite emotional about and quite protective of and so it wasn't surprising then to hear the liberal leader. Say this something that area tool has clearly and directly said. He is a long-standing believer in a for profit models of healthcare. He needs to come clean with canadians on exactly what that means when he says that. So i don't know what what do you think like we. We've talked about canadians being emotional and protective of healthcare. But do they Are they even willing to have that conversation. Do like is that the conversation. We should be having around healthcare in an election. I mean if you wanna talk about the policy conversation certainly because we're just emerging from a year where our healthcare system has gone through a lot and be the question of is. This working for us should absolutely be up for debate. The fact that erdo tool has advanced the argument that he's going to increase funding by such significant amount is a huge step. But none of that is what we're talking about right so like when i think about for example the global mail had a headline that was you know reference how errand or tool promises choice in healthcare the toronto star. Ask a question would he undo canadian medicare in the process. That's where we ended up. Going is the seems to be such little tolerance for opening the door for privatization that it can immediately be kind of seized upon. And you stop having the policy discussions you stop having the intellectual discussions and you only have the emotional ones about our country where we want to pay for really important care or is it a part of our value system that we're not willing to negotiate for it. One of the things that stood out to me erin. A tool said when asked about our healthcare system he said i like the healthcare system. We have now that is to put it plainly a very different tone than how usually political leaders talk about healthcare because they talk about such reverence they say it is the backbone of this country. Eight is the most important thing that we have. We should build a shrine to it. This very very rarely this idea of. That's fine but there are things that we can do. And i have to imagine if the liberals are watching erin o'toole talk about wanting to have it intellectual conversation but healthcare. They would welcome this. Because i just wonder.

"Now has been sort of blown up might be the right word at least in hint at least hit by a couple of things by the politics of the middle east complicated and the leadership's response so enemy. Paul has been leader for a year. She does not have a seat in the house as you know as many of our listeners probably know she tried to and failed so she leads from outside of the house. She's an auto pretty regularly. She does lots of interviews and scrums but she is not in the house in able to ask questions of the prime minister and that kind of thing well over the past week or so one of her. Mp's jennifer out win from fredericton decided that she was going to leave the green party and become a liberal. Mp so now she is so that's one of the party. Yes that's gone and you can trace some of this back to when the crisis in the middle east was unfolding most recently annemie. Paul put out a statement that called for a ceasefire condemned palestinian rocket attacks and talked about the excessive military force. Coming from the israelis janika Didn't like that statement. She called it inadequate and she essentially went to bat for the palestinians and called what was happening there and apartheid. Paul manley and other green. Mp did the same. He also criticised the statement. Thought it was too weak. This led the senior adviser to enemy. Paul i mean no. This is so long but just bear with me not to take to facebook on may fourteenth and call out their own. Mp's for what he called anti semitism and discrimination he also called jagmeet singh and sadly green. Mp's he didn't name them. He said that we will work to defeat you calls adviser says will were to defend green polka right right and labeled all these people anti semites now been you know ongoing sort of back and forth around the time line. How much did this actually influence. Jennifer at wynn's decision to leave but what it has resulted in was on tuesday night the counseled green party. Federal council gets together and decides that they are not going to hold a vote yet to get rid of enemy paul but they are going to require enemy. Paul the leader of the party to make a statement that she denounces the comments of her adviser and that she fully supports her caucus. And so that's where we are when we record this. This may happen later today. And if it doesn't it's possible enemy paul's around much longer but like holy shmole like what who knew. The green party could be this fraud What do you think is going on there. I i love this story this story. I love this story so much. And i love it because it is an equal opportunity. Land mine like there's a chance that your blow up every single person's face enemy paul's position has been that jenner cat when crossing has been in the works for a while and the whole conversation about prism of israel with just basically a manufactured reason for her departure but it doesn't look good for her as a leader to have lost a member of your caucus a third of her caucus caucus three people. Genyk you made history with her election but the greens actually do have a few seats in her home province. So there's a possibility. This could backfire on her. Trudeau appears to be easily. The person who comes out on top by gaining an mp which is like a huge win but like her views on israel don't exactly aligned with the liberal parties and there's no good reason why this doesn't present a future source of tension again if not like right now i don't know even like elizabeth may the former leader of the greens has been like quite widely reported to be an odd with the enemy. Paul very publicly and may has been the face of the party for so long that i think it's a big deal to undermine the very first person to take over after you. Everyone has something to lose god. Who the because you know they might think the winners here. Because the greens were nubia their heels for a minute but atwood made it explicit when she was leaving the greens there was only one place she tells you go and that was the liberal party and could that be electability reasons shirt but it's also true that you know if you're a progressive person. You'd look at that and go why would agree. Mp go to the liberals and not be just like the states feel high for everyone and it just like happened very quickly. Yeah i we should point out that win since becoming a liberal has altered her position on the middle east saying now her words were actually intended to send quote strength and support to people in need that she recognizes palestinians and israelis are suffering. So it would seem that someone in liberal parties probably had a conversation with her around dow. Yeah but the other thing to keep in mind here and these are important. Facts to is that enemy. Paul is herself jewish and that she is the only female leader of color in the house. These are not insignificant facts when it comes to this conversation because it then becomes sort of what is going on here in the party. Is this about policy. It or is this about style of leadership and ability to lead a party. Can you even lead a party. That is really built on trying to get everyone. Just sort of respect each other's positions it was only this week that enemy paul really took in my view. Any responsibility for how this unfolded. Here's a bit of what she said and willing to recognize anything that i might have done to contribute to the situation. It's important for me to grow and learn always as a leader and be humble enough to recognize that. We are like months probably. We are probably months out from an election. This is not how you want to be heading into an election even if enemy. Paul does what they want her to do here. And she gets passed this hump. She is deeply deeply weakened by her own party and it seems hard for me to see how she goes into an election in a position of strength. I just don't see it. You might reasonably like the last few years of green party as a journey towards professionalization towards being seen as professional you know sort of national party and this undermines that with one move like be idea that there's this much of infighting intention and the leader that the party was so excited about has arrived. At this point it does a lot. It really does a lot to undermine agrees of worked towards in terms of like building. This image does. The i would say is that they have already been not criticisms but maybe questions about enemy paul's decision making because she's insistent on running in toronto center probably the safest liberal writing in the country. I mean it doesn't get much safer than than center and sure enough in a by-election. She did pretty well but she didn't come even close to winning the by election. She wants to run their again so that continues to sort of raise questions about her judgment as a leader. One can think of wealth for example. There's a couple of hours outside of toronto where the greens already have a provincial seat and so it would be very easy to imagine that you would maybe be able to build support but she was not really having their conversation. I mean the other thing about all of this is that floor. Crossings can sometimes be a harbinger of like an election to come. People start to get restless people start to think about. Oh man am. I gonna get elected if i continue to be with this party. And when you a decision like this it kind of feels like there's an energy in the air that everyone's starting to think about their own future election prospects and if a third of the green caucus feels like. They can't get elected with the green party and they leave. It raises questions about that professionalization. That's been happening inside the green party for so long. Yeah i think it also raises questions about how this party works. Moving forward after elizabeth. May you know who was the leader. The party for so long and who managed to sort of shape it in her image now. Some people you know weren't down with the image but after she decided she didn't want to be leader anymore. There's a question about the so. What is this party and who does this party represent. This is not a problem unique to the greens. You could argue. This is the problem that the conservatives had after. Stephen harper left and andrew. Scheer did not succeed in defining who the party was without steven harper. The it's not unlike what's happening here so it wouldn't be unprecedented to see the first sort of person out of the gate to replace. Liz may potentially not succeed. But i do think that the green party has a more to lose because they felt like they were gaining some momentum and this could totally put.

"And the charter should like take a seat. Yeah and i think in the case if you look at quebec whether it be around well they would call it a secularism bill or whether you look at language laws. Those are two things that criticized the legislation as much as you want. But they the quebec government. In those two instances plus it goes. Government would argue that they are overriding the charter to protect the identity of quebec the language of quebec and the culture of quebec. You can dispute that. But that's what they would say so you can sort of understand why they might make the case. That section thirty three should be used in the case of this particular one does. I don't think that party. A third party financing speaks to the identity of ontario are need to survive what happened to our rights if we were to be bombarded with third party ads for twelve months like clearly the scale is a little bit different and unfortunately the only way right now for citizens to judge whether the notwithstanding clause is being well used or not is with an election. That's really the only sort of safety mechanism that's built in all of this. The fact that it does expire after five years. That's sort of the normal electoral cycle. And that's when people can weigh in and say you know what that didn't make a whole lot sense to me. And i'm not cool with that. I would critics seemed to be saying though is if you start to use it more and for things like what. We're seeing ontario. Does it start to normalize the use of it. And how does that affect the country's rights overall and. I think that that's a pretty good question to ask. And should we be as citizens worried about that right. It's not so much. The story as would opens the door to because you're kind of in politically unprecedented grounds in terms of this kind of use. The glass and i get is a blatantly political moment to us. I'm than i was standing clause so if ford is going to do this. Does that open the door to other premiers to do that. Certainly the constitutional scholars are banging the tables of course in the back of the room. Because i'm sorry constitutional scholar. They're banging of the table saying no. No this is not this things for and the question is like. Is anyone going to listen to them. Yeah you know to be fair conservatives would say no this is exactly what it's for. This was the whole point of putting this in the constitution was to allow provinces to make these decisions and claim their own powers to make their own laws for it not to be influenced unduly by the court and you can understand that that is the argument that provinces would make but i think you have to also be willing to defend fiercely. Why you're doing it. In this instance. For now i have to say maybe what is allowing the ontario government to avoid a huge amount of criticism. Is what you said off. The top that election financing is not generally why people take to the streets right. This is not this is not. They are not feeling this directly in their everyday lives. And so maybe they'll be able to do it and move through it without it becoming a huge issue but that.

"Your best friends. So join me. Alina mahmoud and a panel of the smartest culture critics that i know as we dissect the discourse but also have a great time doing it. This is a cbc podcast. Hey there i'm rosemarie barton. and i'm elena democracy and this is party lines rosy for the first time in ontario history. The government has used the constitutional option. Duck ford government invoked the notwithstanding clauses week barry so his government could pass legislation limiting third party election advertising after a judge said back violated the right of freedom of speech so this week. We're going to go deep into the charter of rights and freedoms to look at its most controversial. I love it. I love i love it you. Meanwhile green party leader. Paul lost one of her. Mp's to the liberals so that's a third of her caucus now gone and she's facing growing discontent among the membership. She's had the job for less than a year. What is it make the green party. What does it mean for poke. Its party lines drama addition. Let's do this ooh okay. I'm excited for this one. Today show is full of dramatic turns the start with this. Bill just took effect antero. And it's a bill that was introduced by ford and the progressive conservatives and essentially would've does is restrict. Our third parties can spend their money on political advertising ahead of any kind of election. The law that the. Pc's are tinkering with here is not a new law. It was originally introduced by kathleen wynne to keep big money out of politics so before there were certain restrictions on how much third parties like unions are advocacy. Groups could spend a little messing about six months before an election. Ford made that period a whole year before an election but kept the spending limit the same and they made the argument that this move will keep big money out of politics. So unions can't spend big bucks for a whole year before election. I should also add that. It's not just unions. There would also be partisan sort of lobbying groups that would be part of this would be considered third parties like ontario proud. Oh yes that's right so the opposition says hey this is anti-democratic which is of course up for debate. But like that's what an opposite job is is to oppose and say the thing that you're doing is not great anyway. The bill ends up in court and a judge last week. Says actually this. Bill is unconstitutional. Because the pc's pulled this year before the election thing out of a hat like there's no explanation for this kind of arbitrarily said for this period. That's where things get dramatic and i'm like rubbing my hands with exciting here. It's i can really is happening. Okay so doug. Ford recall. The ontario legislature invoked the nuclear option aka sections thirty three. Which is the notwithstanding clause and with the section does for folks who are not familiar is it. let's provinces say well okay fine. This law passes unconstitutional. But we're going to override the charter for five years and we're just gonna do anyway and chaos. I mean not really. Because i've had a lot of conversations with like relatively political friends and not one of them was like you know what i want to talk about is huge story but it is a big deal because it's the first time that it's ever been used in ontario and it's like the courts played this powerful card in ontario was like here's a counter spell this really powerful and it raises the question. Should we have accountable. Card against the chartered. Is this how we should operate this democracy. I love it and we have to answer. That is against in the next ten minutes. It's super fascinating. And it's also a conversation that we have sort of sporadically in this country when a when a province decides to invoke the notwithstanding clause which happens very very rarely producer. Richard wanting to make sure we said that very rarely quebec has used it multiple times. Which probably won't surprise people. They've used it with bill twenty one. Which is the bill that prevents people from wearing religious symbols work in public service positions. They've used it already with bill ninety-six which is their new language law. New brunswick almost used it with a mandatory vaccination policy alberta used it around the same sex marriage law back in two thousand but didn't end up. Having to all that to say is there are attempts to use it. There are threats to us. It would probably be the to put it by provinces to sometimes say we're willing to go this far and then some sort of compromise is reached or someone down or the courts their minds. It's super interesting. I think to look at it from different. Political ideological perspectives liberals Who of course brought in the charter. Under pierre trudeau would say that. This is something that was done. In order to placate a couple of provinces in order for the constitution to be repatriated and that is as you say the nuclear option. It is the last thing any government should ever consider. In order to suspend rights conservatives would have a different view conservatives would say this is vital to allowing politicians and policymakers to push forward their agenda and not be held back by the courts and those positions. Are i think valid in this conversation. I think when the question is is whether in this instance in particular this is about politics as opposed to policy where it makes sense that you would need to suspend the rights and a whole lot of people are certainly saying that this is about politics and and doug ford and his party not wanting to see overwhelming criticism during a writ period leading up to next june. right like what's been an interesting fallout. Is that few people are talking about the substance of the bill. Like sure can change a lot about how democracy works like that is something that a lot of parties do but everyone is now talking about how their getting better like. It's kind of like using a helicopter to get across town like no one's asking about your destination just like why are you taking that to get there and i feel like it's time to overlook the fact that like you mentioned you know in quebec section thirty. Three's like brushing your teeth. You wake up shower and then you use section thirty three to override some stuff but ontario. The idea that this is new territory is significant. Ford has threatened before he spent a use it when he was pushing to reduce the size of the toronto city council but that threat used to be enough that he was the specter of using. It kept it from actually being deployed for the nuclear option. Maybe we should back down here but now that it has been pulled it raises all these questions but the use case because is it actually an emergency to limit spending on third parties people's screaming in the streets. If i hear one more union ad on the radio will lose it like is that what's happening or is it. Perhaps that these third parties are to be blunt less likely to make a big adspend saying you should vote. Pc and it is in fact in ford's interest to make sure that their ability to spend is affected. That's not an affair thing. Nearly every party gets into power and figures out a way to tip the scales slightly to make it harder for the other guy to get support or getting money but not every party pushes the big red button and says it is imperative that our political interest be protected.

I it was hilarious. Because andrew again he andrews cellist and so i- andrew out of the two of us is generally the one that can talk much better than i can be can he can. He just has the gift of words. But wow when we were on that call. I had to save him because he was like always miss my hero but it was. Yeah it was. It was really. It was really amazing so from that point with all of this sudden unexpected publicity It went to bbc world news. They went to see a net went to is israeli national news. It went to bulgarian national news. Argentina just went all over and so we just we were inundated with With requested you this type of program so then we started thinking will what if we i mean. There's only two of us. So yes so. We started thinking We need to what if with all of these resources at least suddenly been given all of this support that we're suddenly been given and all of the musicians it need so much help right now What if we could actually support organizations around the country to actually start and sustain a program like this um for a year and so this was actually this was andrew's great business mind of like okay to people. How do we make it work. And with all the cogs in the machine and the machine and so he yeah so he came with this idea of the vital sound initiative which is partnering. With at this point it's nine arts organizations across the us to start and build a digital bedside concert program in their own local community They support artists their own artists and artists connected in their community Yeah to bring music to cope with patients that are isolated so yes so that launched in september In it's been it's been really. It's been really great and really exciting. i think. Yeah my final piece of this pm. It to picture now is I think with all of this excitement in all of this unexpected totally crazy expansion through digital forms through you know virtual platforms. It really made us think. Wow what are we doing. There's so much more that we can be doing through this platform and so we with all our prison stuff that shutdown. We started to think. Well what if we actually build something that can go to them. And so we started We started building virtual. Beethoven cycle string quartet cycle course that will eventually be. We'll be like a distance. Learning course that can be used in any correctional facility that has devices which a lot of them do now. So yeah so that's our. That's our next big project at the moment and that is really that is really cool. are also doing this for Seller in hospitals and working towards getting programs at prisons do also in late nursing facilities. And doing some of the things you were doing at the very beginning but in digital form as well we yes but not to the extent that i want to be. I think this is actually this week. And part of the reason that it's also released stressful right now is that i we have..

I forgot you don't like rebirth flu. Not yeah well hilariously. i was trying to Get a student to play a line more smoothly like you know we were talking about the smoothness of the musical line and i use a lot of food analogies when i teach and so i was talking about like the silken of a pie the inside of silky pie and article. What are you having for. Thanksgiving and the student was like strawberry rhubarb house. Like oh that's not that is I would eat that. But that's not a smooth pie That's a very. I believe a strawberry. Rhubarb pie has like pieces of rhubarb in that s. Not going to be like a smooth time. I've actually never had one. So i had a relatively. This is not even going to be food related. But it's just another. It's it's it's hilarious to me the ways that we all use other words to talk about Sound yeah and so for for reasons that we'll probably get into here in a little bit right. I have been using a new a new pedal with my guitar rig today at a at a practice and was told at one point that my tone was too sandy thing because it was not smooth enough and it was he was correct. I understood exactly what. I never heard her that one say. Oh it's rough. Yeah let's see one of my favorites to us with With anybody doesn't have to face up to be a student is dusty that the sound was dusty. Old noah saw old. It's win. you want there to be really cleaned. Sound like a clean break in the double stop between playing on a double sp- where you played More than one note at one time and playing it smoothly from the lowest part of the instrument and crossing over that divide the midpoint to the upper part and it being clean and if there's something in between it's dusty or like if they're playing a note and they like hit another string and it could appear to be clean just like you could look at a piece of furniture and believe that it is clean and then on closer inspection you see dust on deer and so yeah sound and dust. Let's interesting because y'all have a very specific word for playing two notes. At a time we would just call that a chord. Well yes we also call them courts but we have double stops triple stops you know and that's it kind of depends on how to the table but You know yes no pressure on guitar if you play to notes you've played a cord We might be unpowered. Well yeah. I don't think anybody is playing viola and plays a big c major chord in his like. This is my power cord. maybe should try. Try to play power chords. the next time i Play the bach. G miners wanted five jeanette. minor sonata violin. Spent a long time. I played them all right. Well we'll look at that later Clearly we do not have a guest. Like i said guest the pie and We not actively not active.

"For the level of Lake. Sight unseen I we a picked an apartment on hard dot com and. Moved here without ever see it. Okay. So. That's how I moved to Houston in August without ever having been here before and stepped off the plane and was like I live here now and. You. Spend a lot of time in Florida. So you were familiar with the Gulf coast. Not. Over See my family's. Atlantic side and that's hot but nothing truly prepares you for the heat. The heat in Houston and the humidity that was the thing. But you know. I was excited about living here because of the educational opportunities and the music opportunities that I had always heard about helped but I, didn't really know. Firsthand and so I'm from Maryetta Georgia. So what's funny about being from that area and then also living in Houston is if you're from Marietta, you say you're from Atlanta if somebody asks you where you from Atlanta and I used to do that all the time. I still do. But it's if you ask somebody from the Houston area where you're from, they will say Houston even if that means that they're from like one of the surrounding areas. but so. Dan when you moved here, how many loops were there and you in Houston the beltway was still under construction. This was nineteen, Ninety, seven, nineteen, Ninety, seven. So we were not in the like three loop with scenario that we find ourselves in reading surround. Mr. Yes Oh. Yeah. When I moved here, there are already three and so I'm the I'm the latest. To move to Houston. But you know, I, think the biggest change for me coming from Georgia. Was How people don't put buggies away at the grocery store percival what's a buggy but you say buggy. Say It's. A CART It's actually a buggy. Tyler is a buddy. I thought that was a tiger thing. To like, that's what I grew up with. You know your parents were like, go get the buggy and so. I've been made fun of my whole life for that well once I left. Tyler? You'd go back you liking, got my buggies hold on what is the generic term for carbonated sugary beverage coke. Coke Muka. So at least we can all agree can that coke is a generic term? Difference like I'm going to get a coke and then like, okay what kind. And you're like Dr Pepper. Cherry coke. Okay Yeah buggies though yeah. y'All don't say that in Tennessee. Their cards. Okay. Well, shopping carts if you think. About it well, it's on a Sunday? Okay. Perhaps, but I was just really shocked that people did not put their buggies slash carts away at the grocery store and they're just like in Houston vice-like aimlessly wandering around the parking lot and I had never seen that before by I know that that's ridiculous. But that is what was the most shocking thing to me was that there were just shopping carts. By the time, you take the extra twenty steps to move your shopping cart into the cart. Corral? You've sweated fourteen more gallons of sweat and might need a bottle of gatorade or something. So people just like I can't I need a coke. So. that. All, right. Well, no. Okay. So what was the most shocking thing to you Dawson about here? Mother shocking things but I think what shocked me is how much I didn't know about a city I had visited. So many times. like I said, I was visiting my aunt in the suburbs and hanging out in her pool and we'll go to Galveston we do all the Houston things but. I don't know when I moved here. The first thing I did of course is I went to Kia and. Walked you know got my furniture for my for my new place. Is Hundred degrees outside and I was just so. Kind of stunned and excited by all the different languages you know I knew it was obviously a big city it was more international. How international it was I mean even compared to Dallas it's it's so international and. So. That was just really really cool a really really enjoyed that, and then I started noticing. That sort of thing everywhere. And then, of course, all the food and the. All the arts and it just goes on and on and on but the other thing that really surprised me is again back to the heat my I grew up in Texas I thought I knew what he was but tyler, he is different from Waco he which is different from Houston. Houston as the worst by far, it's like all the heat's so so for those who are not familiar with their Texas geography or don't have to take Texas history which. I did not know was that thing like okay. So I did not know that Texas had its own pledge and then also had like required Texas curriculum for students in school. So that was also shocking to me. Did, you have to take Georgia history. Book because I definitely had to take Tennessee history. By the time we moved here I had already passed the grade Texas, history was required never. Oh. Wow. I I remember taking US history. And world history. But I don't remember if there was a Georgia history. Class. I'll check my report cards so. We'll look we'll look back but okay. So we were talking about you know finding the heat shocking. That was asking Dawson like where is Tyler where Tyler in Waco compared to Houston, and.

"Morning not have to go anywhere work continued not going anywhere he dinner and it never leave the house and that has has definitely changed a lot of my habits changed my entire routine and it's been really really interesting wage. I think it's also really weird and random that there's been this crazy shortage of canned diced tomatoes at the grocery store it is there have been so many times where we just really want a dog Salsa, and absolutely could not because you cannot find a can of tomatoes that's true or graham crackers. I'm not really sure what the s'mores explosion long that's been happening. But numerous times we have tried to go and get graham crackers and there aren't any at all like not even the knockoff generic brand new jersey. Yeah, H-E-B graham crackers, not good. No offense HEB. So these are obviously just a few more light-hearted examples of things that have changed over the last few months and a lot of people have experienced a lot more serious change and a lot more unfortunate change out there. So, you know, we're going to we're going to talk some some people we share some stories. We're going to have other people share their stories. I'm pretty sure that we know such a wide range of people that We could probably find someone who's experienced just about every different level of upheaval and change here over the last few months. So we'll plan on getting as many of them on the show dogs can as many who are you know, willing and comfortable sharing their stories and you know, hopefully that will be something that will resonate with everyone as a listener. I hope so we do have friends and family and other people in our lives that have lost jobs have switched jobs have of decided to start new adventures. And so that's what we're really looking at with pivot party. It's not just about having to buy some off-brand graham crackers. It's really thought about changing things up in our lives and being okay with it and how we cope with it and how we deal with it and looking at it through the lens of creativity dead. Looking at what we've lost in the last seven to nine months and honestly time doesn't even feel like a thing. I rarely know what day it is. And yeah, I know about you Dan and I talked about that all the time where we can't figure out what day it is what time it is the things like that have really lost their meaning but there's been a gift of that as well. I just kicked the Mike stand there has been a gift to having to change things up and some of the gifts are getting to spend more time with our families and in our home. So the downside of that is it Labor Day when we're recording this and it's about 7:30 p.m. And my work just texted me out of the blue and that's really odd that is a little strange that you know, that is one of the odd things about this time warp. Is that Since nobody really knows what time it is or what day it is. It seems that we've lost some of our what is that not decorum boundaries. We've lost some of our protocol for when we can work and when we can't work, but like I said, we're looking for creative and you know exciting ways to embrace this change because this isn't going away and it's not going away anytime soon. And that's what we're here to talk about. So for me, I'm a professional musician and in March lost a third of my income because all concerts were canceled. And so one of the things Dan and I have started doing and this was a big pivot for us was we started a business and we've been talking about it long. We've been talking about it for what 2 years 2 years, right? We've only known each other 2 years 2 years and 4 months 2 years 4 months 3 days. I don't know how many minutes neared well so basically yeah, we've been talking about starting a business together and it has always fallen to the back burner and I know we're not the only people that have gotten to start some projects that they wanted to do that were on the back burner. During this time. So that's what we're here to talk about. Yeah, absolutely. So I did have to glance over at my phone for a minute. One of my co-workers is at the office and he looked at my desk and saw that there was not a computer there and thought you know, we've had actually we had a couple of break-ins at the office and thought that something was going on because there was no computer there and was just trying make sure that either I had come and gotten it or there was something else, you know, not bad going on. Luckily. I work on a laptop and it goes with me everywhere I go so there was nothing there to steal So speaking of my job as we said, my name is Dan. I'm a graphic designer by trade and a musician by Hobby and my office when they sent everybody home shortly shortly after they sent everybody home in March shut down over time. And you know for me that was a pretty sizeable chunk running the creative team there at the office. I put in a lot of em, Saturdays and a lot of extra hours on weeknights. So it was it was was a hit and that led us to buy necessity makes some some changes to our routines and not our plans. Really. I mean, I know that we had to cancel plans that we had in mind for this year for for quite some time. But the the trade-off there has been you know, there's been lots of extra time that we've been able to have here together and just having the additional free time to pursue our business ideas. It's it's been really great. I know that I have very much enjoyed sort of changing my role in the process. I'm doing fairly similar work to what I would be doing at the office, but I've had a larger role in in going out and and actually getting that work and sort of overseeing the entire process and that's been really cool to feel like there's more more ownership over the sort of start to finish full scope of the project kind of think it's dead. Actually been really fun. So the business that we started is called Design By Night which might make you think fly by night, but I can assure you that is nothing of the sort. We came and things we do marketing we do branding we're basically if you need a website a logo branding marketing images social media coaching any anything anywhere along those Realms that is the kind of thing that we are here to help with. It's something that has been sort of a side project for me for years, you know doing little projects for fractions our family or you know, just people I know on the side but to be able to really take that and start to turn it into something of mine of ours that name is earnest money and and really advancing us has been really great and these last few months have just really seemed like the time to go for it. Right and I help out with that as well. So as a professional musician And if you are one or you know one, you know, they also have a side hustle. There is no professional musician out there that is a freelancer a teacher who is not also offer either a dog walker or a therapist or doing something other than just playing music or just teaching lessons musicians have about five jobs. So for me, it's been to lose part of my income and these performance opportunities. I found myself in a strange place of meeting more to do wanting more to do and wanting it to be creative and to be something and so it's been really fun working on design by night and it is something that we that we do together and We're glad you're here. We're glad that you've listened and we hope you do some more. Yeah, so the plan here is we're going to put out a show once a week on Wednesdays. Yes. What do we say that already?

"Off. I'm Nina and I am joined by my co-host. His name is Dan. Hello, Dan and I are married full disclosure disclosure you both are artists and musicians and we wanted to start this conversation to really talk about the experiences that we have collectively had. The last few months as we navigate this world during the pandemic and one of the things that Dan and I talked about all the time is pivoting and we need to do it a lot. We've done it at the grocery store. We've done it in our jobs. We've done it in our home and we want to share ideas and stories about our friends and colleagues that have also done it and so for Dan, I don't know what has been your experience with pivoting. Well for me the biggest just when I think has been switching from working in an office environment to working from home and just how different that is when it comes to monitoring your own time staying up to date with all the things you need to do and just how vast Long Beach strange and weird it is to wake up in the morning not have to go anywhere work continued not going anywhere he dinner and it never leave the house and that has has definitely changed a lot of my habits changed my entire routine and it's been really really interesting wage. I think it's also really weird and random that there's been this crazy shortage of canned diced tomatoes at the grocery store it is there have been so many times where we just really want a dog Salsa, and absolutely could not because you cannot find a can of tomatoes that's true or graham crackers. I'm not really sure what the s'mores explosion long that's been happening. But numerous times we have tried to go and get graham crackers and there aren't any at all like not even the knockoff generic brand new jersey. Yeah, H-E-B graham crackers, not good. No offense HEB. So these are obviously just a few more light-hearted examples of things that have changed over the last few months and a lot of people have experienced a lot more serious change and a lot more unfortunate change out there. So, you know, we're going to we're going to talk to some some people we share some stories. We're going to have other people share their stories. I'm pretty sure that we know such a wide range of people that We could probably find someone who's experienced just about every different level of upheaval and change here over the last few months. So we'll plan on getting as many of them on the show dogs can as many who are you know, willing and comfortable sharing their stories and you know, hopefully that will be something that will resonate with everyone as a listener. I hope so we do have friends and family and other people in our lives that have lost jobs have switched jobs have of decided to start new adventures. And so that's what we're really looking at with pivot party. It's not just about having to buy some off-brand graham crackers. It's really thought about changing things up in our lives and being okay with it and how we cope with it and how we deal with it and looking at it through the lens of creativity dead. Looking at what we've lost in the last seven to nine months and honestly time doesn't even feel like a thing. I rarely know what day it is. And yeah, I know about you Dan and I talked about that all the time where we can't figure out what day it is what time it is the things like that have really lost their meaning but there's been a gift of that as well. I just kicked the Mike stand there has been a gift to having to change things up and some of the gifts are getting to spend more time with our families and in our home. So the downside of that is it is Labor Day when we're recording this and it's about 7:30 p.m. And my work just texted me out of the blue and that's really odd that is a little strange that you know, that is one of the odd things about this time warp. Is that Since nobody really knows what time it is or what day it is. It seems that we've lost some of our what is that not decorum boundaries. We've lost some of our protocol for when we can work and when we can't work, but like I said, we're looking for creative and you know exciting ways to embrace this change because this isn't going away and it's not going away anytime soon. And that's what we're here to talk about. So for me, I'm a professional musician and in March lost a third of my income because all concerts were canceled. And so one of the things Dan and I have started doing and this was a big pivot for us was we started a business and we've been talking about it long. We've been talking about it for what 2 years 2 years, right? We've only known each other 2 years 2 years and 4 months 2 years 4 months 3 days. I don't know how many minutes neared well so basically yeah, we've been talking about starting a business together and it has always fallen to the back burner and I know we're not the only people that have gotten to start some projects that they wanted to do that were on the back burner. During this time. So that's what we're here to talk about. Yeah, absolutely. So I did have to glance over at my phone for a minute. One of my co-workers is at the office and he looked at my desk and saw that there was not a computer there and thought you know, we've had actually we had a couple of break-ins at the office and thought that something was going on because there was no computer there and was just trying make sure that either I had come and gotten it or there was something else, you know, not bad going on. Luckily. I work on a laptop and it goes with me everywhere I go so there was nothing there to steal So speaking of my job as we said, my name is Dan. I'm a graphic designer by trade and a musician by Hobby and my office when they sent everybody home shortly shortly after they sent everybody home in March shut down over time. And you know for me that was a pretty sizeable chunk running the the creative team there at the office. I put in a lot of em, Saturdays and a lot of extra hours on weeknights. So it was it was it was it was a hit and that led us to buy necessity makes some some changes to our routines and not our plans. Really. I mean, I know that we had to cancel plans that we had in mind for this year for for quite some time..

"That's a big deal in my opinion. No put it back on and off the ATV so this doesn't bode well. That's messed up. Also I think like the majority of women and I I don't want I mean this is a huge generalization but I think the majority thirty of women given giant diamond ring like that would wear it until like they truly couldn't bear it. Take it off and be like no I'm done with this is is I think a big deal. Yeah it was weird too and then he was like you ambushed me and he was upset which chore it was just like it was very surface level all and we didn't really get any nuance to like what he was doing that. She didn't appreciate which I saw. I was like I'm confused. I'm really confused right now. It was hard to understand what's going on there but just really bad and I feel I felt bad for her and he just like a not a comforting soul so if she needs I think she needs to look elsewhere. Yeah I will will not be filling her love tank that is true. God so you put Chris as this is an ex category person currently relationship. It'll be paradise in two thousand twenty. You're selecting Chris Yeah anyone else even in the conversation for you I mean Kaylin I think Kaylin as well. She's my pack. No I think that's a great pick. She Kaelin Dean. She says she likes living in in the lie. That is a lie. I just think you have a room. Could there be where do they use the bathroom. Is there an alley. There's no with the heat on if so that gets really really dry. I don't think you would sleep with the cold in blankets sound stuffy. Do you keep the window been. I Hate Campaign Card Hamming. We also ought appealing so I just don't understand like I don't know but they see and they also didn't say were together. which is maybe a good sign yeah ah but she was just like they they really didn't have much time? It's kind of weird that they gave Blake all this sort of front and Center Siam and she didn't get it but they didn't say they're together. They're just like our doing well l. and he was just like you would see his hand. Come down and like touch her like shoulder whatever yeah okay all of it was just really weird because I don't understand like how they chose which couples to focus on which not to but Kaelin Dean didn't get a lot of time. They did seem to have like a legit connection but I just wonder if it's more like a flame that will flame out out yeah. I truly do want to like her because she seems nice and like you know she had a tough back story I feel feel for and she's had the most of her life. Put on Front Street orally any of these people maybe even including Demi like I feel like I allowed or by Kaelin life and her background where she comes from and that's definitely hard to deal with. I mean I'm going to call me a trash. Human Kayla was addressed to all of the haters after blake posting text messages sadly I am not a huge fan of hers but I admire her honesty and her bravery and I think that she's must be incredibly resilient and Dan definitely and I just think that she likes to be on TV. That's what I would see her in paradise and also she's super young she settling down the man in a van the twenty three three is twenty four no. Let's put a pin in that for now. Look we'll come back to. Let's say positive for now most heart warming couple. I think we can say honorable mention patient. I mean what is weird sweet duo. He seems like just the weirdest man in the world his hair. It looks incredible last night. The most lush loss I've ever seen get him. gummy bear hair like add sponsorship. Is that a thing well didn't they. They had like some of the girls gummy bear hair. I don't follow most of these people I tr- check in on them and then you and then I leave. The spawn con is way too much. Posts is constantly. It's what their lives are not that interesting. So what are you doing to warrant all of these post ladies exactly An- An- not to promo it but the Bachelor Party facebook group is just an amazing source of information because people take all of the best of their instrument host share them and they share them and I'm like take it exactly thank you yes. It's it's really true. I had a dark time in late. July where I wasn't doing much because I was like Amac relief breath and so I was like after a lot because it was like the peak of all of the Hanna and Tyler drama shore and I just was so aware of everything happening with bachelor people it's not healthy. It's not and that's why I don't follow them also is Mars stopped or getting better at it. It's it's an amazing Sabra obsessive fans and it's like a real testament why the show still so popular yeah but I it was dark. I was like I was like waking up and checking IT L. Your addiction went a little deep. I don't listen diction so much as filling time and I was just saying. I don't have a lot going on right now. I don't WanNa politics how about the bachelor why not but ultimately the most heartwarming couple. It's gotta go to Damian Christian. They're very cute. There's very sweet. We are also very real. I mean they talk about in their relationships are actual relationship things like I wasn't looking for someone I found you. ooh And I didn't know that this was gonna be a thing. I just thought I thought it was really sweet. A and I think Danny with anyone else. Maybe wouldn't have been as comfortable and I I can't really speak to this but it just seems like Christians such a natural relationship yes. She was able to share this as a result of who she was with or and it's just it's really cool. All I mean I you know it's hard to imagine we start with Colton season and demi was this sort of like provocateur yeah that she would be like Fulcrum of change on reality television or yeah. I think bringing a lesbian relationship to the bachelor nation is in finally awesome yeah especially after the whole brokeback brokeback bachelor. Do you remember that was between it was on Caitlyn sees yes and it was I forget who the two guys were. Oh it was J. Jay Jay and I can't remember his name but yeah it's like. They've come a long way and it's it's really cool and totally damaged. It just seems like everyone's favorite like everyone seems to love her and appreciate her for being so honest she is and that's just really cool and I really enjoyed how like you said they really. She really was honest about her fears of like you know get exposed and she broke down several times and it was just like all I just felt for her. So much is just but like Christian seems like a very stable Christian seems stable and super normal. I think she wasn't on the show more because she's not dramatic. She's to normal on her. She says she's not even like experienced and talking to the camera like Sydney also normal and boring but knows how to talk to the camera and like narrative narrative is okay yeah don't say person to do that because like a normal person should never been on reality TV before so they just they were awesome. I think that's like a huge step forward hurt and I totally I hope I hope that this ushers in you know I think in the mail bag up so we did last week someone asks the rea- fall like queer or gay a bachelor rand. The current format doesn't allow for that and I. I don't know if network TV is ready to like changed radically change yeah. One of one of the only successful network shows right now. Oh my God for real though yeah totally seriously s and so I don't expect that but I do you think there's so many bachelor extensions that there's other ways for them to like keep introducing other types of relationships yeah and everything and I hope they do and that's like that's like an obvious shortcoming with the bachelor the the Bachelorette but you know one step at a time I guess not to like excuse them or like to like only promote had a normativity but it that's what the show is and that's that's what has been and it's hugely popular so do you blame them for not completely overhauling it. I don't know I don't either. I don't either and I also fear if they were to do you like like 'cause you remember like a shot of love with Tequila like I wouldn't want them to like overly make it into something that it that makes fun of the LGBTQ plus community. Yes I completely agree. I completely agree okay next category spin spinoff show we need immediately and in the past I've talked about when the contestants get kicked off. They should all go to like a house in Manhattan beach and it's sort of like survivor ponder after kicked off that they like stay in the house like show them doing their way ends. Wherever so I use I think this is a good idea where they go to Manhattan beach and it's it's like living together even if they hate each other and like wait until filming and whatever but now that all of these gals the gals in particular moved up to Los Angeles right now from Colton season alone living in? La Newly arrived we have Demi Hannah be Hanje Sydney Kirpa and I think Tasha tissues lived here but the rest of the year wow. Let's give a welcome to. La Hill style show with all these women I I be Oh my God I'd be into it with like Demi and Hannah be are living in the same apartment complex in the valley. I love that idea I know like let's everyone all the time Ed Matt why not why not and then you can have like guests. Come in and be like Oh my God. Hey Ties Ya Colton. Whatever whatever yeah I just I just don't get it? I I don't know well and it seems like I mean Kirpa hanging out with Cam and the crew I would love to just like so curve on her instagram that she the Campbell's like a great guy at. She's so lucky to have her life. My guess is that she met him not just the bachelor nation but since jeans near remains that they okay Matt like through like Paradise Dash. I guess I was a lot better realized than he's on TV. That's another takeoff fine. Okay Yeah. I feel like I might like Cam in real life really I would at least enjoy talking about him for an hour bar in the never see him again. You know I can agree seems fun and weird. I love a Weirdo at a bar party and you'd be entertained. Yes exactly okay next biggest podcast bump. Many of these people have podcast is almost famous with Ashley Ban. There's help by segregating with Dean Vanessa Jerry. I mean there's so many there's actually there's so many yeah the one that's been holding steady and now knows about about the bachelor with Derek well. I know the Co.. I don't actually know her but the co-hosts name is Kay right yeah. I think K. Brown her her boyfriend lives in. La and I know him he'll so he's not a bunch of these people because she is like friendly with them and I had to ask him. I was like Matt. Matt is like Jordan psychotic real life Asano. WHO's the noise sky and I believe I neither do I? Jordan later he was like I met him once when I was like okay but yeah so it's it's very not like incestuous.
