Philadelphia's Suburban Battleground: Can The GOP Recover?

"Reliably voted Republican. But the suburbs have changed. And last November, Donald Trump lost them in a big way. Now, with the 2020 midterms in view, both parties are wondering what's going to happen when Trump is not on the ballot. NPR national political correspondent Don Gonyea reports from the vote rich Philadelphia suburbs. Leads drop in on Chester County, Pennsylvania, It's suburban Philadelphia but a place with its own identity. We have a huge agricultural community. We are the mushroom capital of the world. You could come here for a mushroom festival on New Year's Eve. It's quite fun Democrat Mary in Moscow It's his chair of the Chester County Board of Commissioners. And we have a lot of industry were very big in the bio Pharma life sciences community. We have new technology coming in. So ah, lot of great things happening here. Right Next door is Montgomery County, where lives create? Hey V chairs the local Republican party, she says she's watched these suburbs flip from red to blue some only in the past few years. But she says the shift began long before that, If you look at the trends, this has been happening for many, many years. I think it accelerated over the last couple of years. But when I moved into Montgomery County 21 years ago, it was already starting to change in 2016. Hillary Clinton beat Trump in these suburbs, but not by enough of a margin to make up for trump strength in the States rural areas. She lost Pennsylvania, but Joe Biden racked up huge margins in the Philly suburbs. It was key To his statewide victory. The suburbs are far more diverse than they were decades ago, and many suburban voters had an intense dislike of Donald Trump Republican create A V is hoping some of those more moderate voters come back to the GOP. Now that they don't have trump who people voted against because they didn't Like him as a person. He's gone now. And so people are actually looking at issues now and things that affect them on a day to day basis. The changing politics in the suburbs

"Big news coming out of philly. Yesterday joe flacco agreeing to a contract with the eagles. It's a one year deal. Three and a half million dollars. Guaranteed the opportunity to win. Four million more in incentives. Now what does this mean. As far as the eagles and their draft plans remember. They only have one quarterback on the roster until this and that's jalen hurts and they have the six pick in the draft and as you see mel kiper junior and his latest mock has been taking the superstar receiver tamar chase from lsu which would be awfully knife or any quarterback that they have there but so does this mean mel again. It is not your expectation mel with us field. Yates as well here today. It does this mean and again. You're you're mock has them taking chase anyway but the signing flacco does that in your view. Close the door on any possibility that they draft a quarterback at number six. I think they would even going in before flacco. You think about. Joe flacco wise ian eagle thinking about the baltimore raven connection with the philadelphia eagles. Joe douglas and joe flacco who drafted where the want super bowl with the baltimore ravens. So there's that always that connection you can always go to. Guys are picked up later in their career. So for joe. Douglas bringing in a joe flacco you think about what he was doing with the jets in terms of the situation there. And then you've got the philadelphia eagles their same type of thing that raven connections. So i think when you look backing up jalen hurts right now. I don't think he's a threat. I think jalen that guy get jomar chase and go four with him and help jalen hurts and then reassess after the year's over that's what they will do that influence with the raven organization in philadelphia as a factor. I think it's a factor throughout the green and there always is joe. Flacco is a good backup came in the league. Same your matt ryan did and that ryan slow playing great football of course super bowl but Joe flacco did. But i think it's a good situation to have joe flacco there behind. The jalen hurts. Jalen hurts gets hurt. Your season's not over joke and still play. But i think this is jalen team right now. I thought it was carson wentz's team that didn't work out. But i think if you get your march help jalen hurts and then you make your decision air to this year whether in the twenty twenty two draft you have to think about drafting. A young quarterback failed. Same question to you. Does this mean in your mind that the eagles are out of the quarterback market at six. It does not greedy in. Here's a simple reason. Why i agree with everything else that i'm going to double back to that in just a moment. I just have long believed that if you are convinced. A player can be a franchise quarterback that if he's available at six. You have to at least consider it. If you're philadelphia. Now that being said all the indications this offseason from the previous reporting from more about the eagles plan to build around jalen hurts this year plus the signing of joe flacco which at least gives them a veteran option at the very least relatively modest priced by the way three point five million dollars. There are so many signs at the plan. This year is to find ways to make jalen hurts better so i still believe that ultimately the eagles are gonna be in prime position to land one of the best pass catchers in this year's draft a quarterback should not be entirely ruled out. And that's just me having seen the league long enough to know that sometimes teams do things the catch us by surprise even if they should not have caught us by surprise

Did Washington Do Enough to Push Dallas in the NFC?

"Did washington football teams teamers and the giants do enough to push dallas in the nfc. So i left philly out. I don't yeah. I just don't i am found anyone who really thinks they're going to be competitive. I mean let's wait and see got jalen whatever. But that's a team that they're not really fun to talk about. Because their free agency considered like stripping you know but i mean they did sign at harris for like nothing which is probably better sightings but what you have in jalen also you serianni. Yes hundred percent but washington in york both very active and did interesting. Things i think are worth discussing because dallas after the dak prescott deal was finally done. They've kind of made a few moves around the margins adding kia neil. Getting tied as kind of swing. Tackle still have question marks at adra sure and coroner but washington like i think they might have had my favorite free agency or at least the one that i'm most excited to see. I don't know payoff on the field. So just to recap. They signed the aforementioned ryan fitzpatrick one year. Ten million dollars. They tag branch eff. Who's there Pro bowler guard. They signed william jackson from the bengals. Cornerback three years. Forty two million dollars and then added panthers wide receiver. Curtis samuel for three years thirty four point five million dollars so just starting like let's start here. Do you agree with me like do you. Do you like what they did. And do you think it makes them an actual competitor in the division. A really like what. Washington did You know. I think among the guys among the quarterback that they could get because not only were they never in it for russell wilson or or wherever really going to be competitive for shawn watson You had to start looking okay. We'll what's realistic. And it's the ryan fitzpatrick coming off his best his career. It's an andy dalton and whereas that really gonna lead you I think that there was a lot of interest in marcus. Mariota he still is not able to sign with another team because the raiders are still holding him hostage But so. I like the quarterback. Move because you're essentially saying let's build up the team the and let's have the strongest team possible around the quarterback position where we don't sell out just because we have to for that position free agency. Maybe they make a move at the draft for a guy that they have their eye on. Or maybe they just say let's. Let's keep the boat floating this year and let's make our move Next free agency. So i thought that they probably overpaid by million or two on curtis samuel. But they wanted him And and ron rivera really likes them. Obviously william jackson an incredible deal You look around and you need another pass rusher and they can they can probably keep ryan kerrigan as a third down specialist if he comes down off his number end so you know he's he's still doing that. He's gonna get paid a whole lot of money. I'm not sure that that money is really out there especially at this point in free agency so they didn't want to mortgage their future for for quarterback right. Now they wanted to keep the boat afloat. I that and so. I like what they have done. Specially on evens.

Weekly Market Recap

"What moved markets this week the week ending friday march nineteenth twenty twenty one a week that was anchored by the fed interest rate decision and policy statement and ensuing press conference by chairman. Jerome powell the markets did not do very much earlier in the week in anticipation of this and originally greeted powell's statement loose monetary statements. I should say with bullishness with some buying occurring. After the fed meeting on wednesday afternoon that reversed on thursday as yields shot up and stock markets were sold off pretty dramatically in some instances. The nasdaq fell three percent on thursday. And today friday things are kind of shifting around a little bit. We had some selling earlier and they have since come in. Nasdaq is now up for the day. And we're looking at losses but not very big losses for the major indexes for this week so a big week especially when it comes to fed policy. Lot of commentary around that. And i'm looking forward to what my colleagues have to say about it. I will introduce them now. I am joined by sticking alpha editors brad olsen. Vp of news. Kim khanh senior news editor. Stephen alpher managing editor of breaking news. And i'm your host and moderator nathaniel e baker senior editor of strategic contributors kim. Let's start with you. What was your take on. The events of the week ultimate another volatile week and we've had to deal with You know stocks kind of being dragged around by yields again. But i think it's also maybe seemed worse than it was because of thursday's sharp selloff. But now we've got nasdaq. Maybe looking at if it goes down for the week before out of last five that it's been lower but it's got it's started to gain some traction today as we were talking. Could actually you know. Maybe we gained more traction pull out a win just barely for the week. I think inflation has been on. Everyone's mind and not whether or not there is inflation. Think pretty much people are green. But there is if you looked at The philly fed that was out this week The prices paid index jumped to the highest level. It's ever been it's been since march one thousand nine hundred eighty though. There's definitely i mean. The prices received also spike sharply. So there's definitely inflation being seen this inflation in the pipeline data on now. The question is whether it's good or bad inflation and a lot of times you know. Everyone's like okay rates are out in. The market's gonna sell off but you've had good years where rates have been going going up a bit because of growth in. The market's gone along with it so there's been a i think a lot of debate about that and also we're kind of seeing maybe some more evidence of rotation which is not necessarily rate striven just people just still taking are looking at growth and looking for these reopening stocks cyclical stocks and Selling some of the bigger tech names to buy those stocks. And that's going to have an outsized impact on the indexes. Yeah and i guess. The question is also whether the inflation that we're seeing is transitory to bar the feds term which basically apparently means they can just ignore it. Or if it's something a little bit more permanent which might get them to start tapering brad. What's your take. Who are the winners and losers. Definitely this week was a cyclical rally. You saw airlines takeoff literally Partially on the tsa data that we saw travelers start to move around the country. A little bit more aggressively young american airlines alaska air united airlines all up about double digits. Interestingly enough the thing. Sanford bernstein even called out some of the value names or more traditionally cyclical names as screening or momentum. So that's one of the first time i've ever happened or as happens in two thousand sixteen where the value names are now technically momentum names of this upswell of of equity interests that we've seen over the past couple weeks really pick up steam and so that that that involves autos materials energy etc over the past few weeks. Although this week energy was clearly a loser on that steep drop off that we saw an oil the admit marathon oil achy. Wheelock smell the trillium. They took it on the chin Crude i think it had its worst day since september Earlier this week so outside of the energy names. They're the sickles. Were still a big winner. Obviously i think you've powell tried to assuage your concerns about how aggressive the fed was going to be I think just he just issued another editorial earlier today discussing you know trying to reassure the markets. Hey the dove even though quite a few of the members did express an interest in in raising rates before twenty twenty three a still a minority of them obviously

Carson Wentz Says Goodbye To Philadelphia Eagles, Welcomes Fresh Start With Indianapolis Colts

"Carson. Wentz officially introduced as a colts. Now that we're day into the new league year and went hoping for world. Class makeover in indy with frank reich. Who made a big bet on wins putting his career on the line bringing the quarterback. They were an excellent match before the colts. Well built around wins. So here's what went said today about his fresh start. You know you gotta just be intentional. One by one build those relationships and like you said respect is earned not giving so. I look forward to earning a lot of guys respect and You know i i. I'm confident that that will happen. Go trike. I'll never forget when i was working out in fargo north dakota before the draft. It was an instant that we just had this connection on how we see the game and how he challenge each other and ultimately make each other better super excited about getting to work with him again. Because i have the utmost respect for the man that he is also. The coach. study is as well guys here with you for the next hour as well as schefty didn't orlowski. Marcus spears matt miller will join us for a little draft talk later but let's get back to what we just heard from. Carson wentz introduced today. Dan alaska simply is this. How does he move. Forward was carson wentz's success this year. We'll start off the field. There are more questions than answers about him right now. So how is it going to turn the bad of last year into the good this year. What did you learn when it comes to relationships. How are you going to be better at relationships. How are you going to be better at leadership. How are you going to be better at handling the adversity off the field. I mean he just talked about earning the respect of his teammates and in the locker room. Think about this. He can go into that locker right now. This is what i would do if i was him. Sit down with those new coach teammates. How did philip rivers do it. Filled came from a different team and he came down year. What did he do. Endeared himself to you guys how did he earned your respect. What's what's stuff that that clicked with you guys because the reality is you don't have to sit here and say that you've got to be somebody or not. You can still be the genuine authentic person that you are but the reality is you should be ever changing. You should be ever-growing. And i liked the fact that he said. I've got to be intentional because the truth is this when september comes. No one cares about your excuses. Excuses or explanations you've got to figure out in the next five months in the midst of unique off season again how to earn. How do prove to your teammates that you're the guy proved to your teammates that you will take over this locker room and become part of it. That's his biggest challenge and once he realizes that off the field is equally if not more important on the field. That's when he can start to rebuild his career. Yeah no doubt. I think self awareness as well like the indianapolis colts need carson wentz to come and fix them as a football team he needs to. They need him to come. Add to what they already have going already building. And there's a amount of pressure on carson winston. He never felt in philly because of the situation. And he walks into. And they are frank reich as well like frank reich has attached is job to carson wentz internally him around and making him the quarterback that that can get team to where they think they can go but india set. They have a good offense around. Obviously they make moves at tackle. They have a good running back. Good receivers a defense that at the top level of the nfl last year. so carson winston is not coming into a bad situation this is a rehab for carson wins. This is not a rehab for the indianapolis colts. He needs to be aware aware of that as well. And look i wish and hope that carson wentz turns this thing around and has a lot of success. I'm just going to sit back and see how he handles the pressure. Because now you're on a playoff team. You're around got dairies. Linda put it out there right here to win. Don't care about what you have to say don't care about your past that these that transpired pencil tired about if you're going to come play for the indianapolis colts come to win. So there's a lot on the line of course a wins but there's also a lot on the line for the indianapolis colts football team as far as where they wanna go and a hell of a lot of framed right for sticking his neck out there to say i'm the guy that can get the carson that we saw in twenty seventeen. And if he is. The indianapolis colts are absolutely a legit super bowl contender.

"Supporting. Whyy penn medicines transplant institute performing kidney liver heart lung and pancreas transplants for more than fifty years. Learn more at penn medicine dot org slash transplant or eight hundred. Seven eight nine penn. This is the why. I'm malcolm burnley. I'm talking with david. Rudolph ski one of the lawyers who sued the city ten years ago for illegal. Stop and frisks so your law firm and looking at this data has been seeing some improvement in the numbers of illegal stops but has also seen evidence of racial bias in the stops that are made. What has the city had to say about this. Of course the police department said do a two major reasons this areas that are not racial in nature one this more crime and black communities and two. We have more officers there. Because it's more crime until you can expect that they would be more stops because of those factors and legitimate point right The numbers don't prove prove disparities. They don't necessarily prove racial bias. Our expert with ten years of data. Who's finally able to convince the city. And even the city's expert that it wasn't just racial disparities. It was racial bias in largely black communities in the city what we found even taken into account crime rates pleased pointed far more stops than you found in other communities white communities given the same population And so we knew there was something going on because the community was black by the same token in largely white areas in the city where there were lower numbers of stops the disparities huge So if you took an area that was eighty percent white. Eighty five percent white in philadelphia. We're finding that the stops was still over fifty percent black right and the city this summer which is a marking point. Our case filed with a court a concession that there was racial bias and that they were open to remedial measures to deal with racial bias. I know you've been speaking with members of city hall as well as commissioner outlaw about some of these possible remedial measures. Could you elaborate on what those might be. First of all close to forty or forty five percent of all stops in philadelphia or what. I call quality life stops. It's not somebody with a gun. It's not a serious felony. It's somebody with an open container urinating in the alley literally right people could be stop-and-frisk for literally in philadelphia those kinds kinds of incidents Not even misdemeanors. That's as i say not quite half but close to half of all the stops so you suggested ending quality of life stops it would reduce the number of stop significantly reduce the number of illegal stops and it would reduce the racial disparities. It turns out in quality of life stops over ninety percent or menards huge numbers. So that's one recommendation. We've made the second recommendation. We've made that. We think is very important is in cases in which an officer makes a stop without reasonable suspicion. They're not subject to discipline and what are called progressive discipline first time warning second times we training third time. It could be real disciplined so those are just two of the majors. For example that we propose to the city. We will know in the next couple of months which ones they accept. If we're not satisfied we can ask the court to order additional measures and ultimately if what the city does or doesn't do is not sufficient to cure the racial bias. As i say we have a remedy with the court says the court to end. Stop and frisk. According to the data you've tracked for an entire decade now. Stop and frisk has been responsible for very few guns being taken off the street. Does that mean that. Stop and frisk because both disproportionately affected black and brown communities and also has not been responsible for reducing crime consistently since we've been looking at this data when we look at frisks and that's what the officer says not only did have reason to stop them but have recently friskin pussies armed and dangerous for every hundred times. They i somebody. They find a single gun. You can do better randomly at the philadelphia right. This notion that were pulling of guns off the street and stopping violent crime. Not so clear. You spoke about mayor kenney running on a platform that included reforming stop and frisk but over the last few years many activists and community members have said that he hasn't gone far enough. I'm wondering what the events of this summer. What the current political appetite is for reforming. Stop and frisk. Even further mckinney actually ran on an instant frisk program in two thousand fifteen. I don't think he meant to end a completely but that's what he ran on because it was an issue that was very important in the city came into office realize he wasn't an ended but between him commission Is they said they did reduce the number but still a gap between reality and what's going on the streets at what should go on constitutionally. I do think you're right. The events of the last year the confluence of events George floyd shooting the overreaction to protests here which they've had to apologize for their admission in this case that there is racial bias. Not just racial disparities. Which is a huge admission. Many many cities wouldn't do that indicates to me. I don't want to be too optimistic here That there is a change of us. Commissioner outlaw has underlined. That said she's willing to consider anything to make this a constitutional program so there is some opportunity here that i've not seen in many years for some very significant changes in policing have four. We'll go and we'll be sufficient is something we'll find out. I think they say within the next several months the two thousand and twenty one. Well david thanks for all the work over the last decade On this issue and especially thanks for giving us the update on where things stand today. My pleasure.

"I was always under the impression that I mean when the pandemic first started it was like well, we'll be out of this in a month and then and then after you know three months were like oh shit. We're in this for the Long Haul so I thought there was no way in that month. There is no way there's going to be enough change. I I was writing articles. I was writing pieces that were like see these are all the problems and in my head I was like, well, you know took us this is over in a month. It's all going to go back to normal. But then as soon as it starts sticking around like as soon as we saw that it wasn't going away anytime soon and then people started protesting and like, oh my God, there's dead. Is actually going to be changed this time. Yeah, and now, you know, I I can't. I can't imagine restaurant the restaurant industry going back like reverting back to its old model. I I mean it's obviously going to happen right away. Like as soon as the restaurants can you know, I I mean reopen at its full capacity. They're probably going to start out at a place where it's like we're going to do this the only way we know how for the time being and then we can change but over time there's you know, this is a good change everything is going to change. I don't think that restaurants the way they were I don't think they were built for built for a pandemic. Right? And and so the the way you do think there will be radical change, but the thing it's like they're kind of the thing that was weird to me is like you're hearing all of these, you know, you're seeing a lot of these protests that go against our restaurants like we demand more rights. We demand Healthcare we demand all these things and the timing for those things is impossible right? Like I mean like it's never the right time it's off. Right time to protest for that but no restaurant owner. They're all basically staring over into the abyss right like exactly exactly. I mean it was it was it was it was a Confluence of the the worst things in that could possibly happen to every single, you know facet of the restaurant industry happening all at once. So like, you know, when when people get scared they act in faith and then they lost their jobs and they're like, hey, why do I know? I don't have a job right now and they look behind them and they're restaurant owner, you know, and there's no one else to look at so long and and then on top of that, you know, there's a million think pieces about that the changes that should be happening in the restaurant industry and you you start reading those and start looking at your place of work and you're like, okay something about adding up. So what are some of those changes you've been reading about I mean, so I wrote about this basically the the reason I wrote that big piece is I I worked so just background. I worked in the restaurant industry. I I worked in I worked in it for like over ten years. I worked in Philly restaurants and some of the some of the bigger Philly restaurants off and so I wrote about it. So I have both perspectives, right? And by I saw I from from the inside you you know that this industry wasn't meant to be anything other than what it was..

"But that's cool I'll play by that. Make me let me just tell you how the rest of the world I know when I first read about your festival and other people indie artists. They were a little nervous. A bunch of trepidation about the big high powered corporate lawyer running this music festival. Yes. Oh how much of that? Did you encounter and like how you get around it or work through it? I still get that. Honestly. A number will be we met a while back in and I think I. Think People were surprised me look I I. Don't know I'm not gonNA stop knocking to try to not be myself. I am what I do to eight. I think I have a decent credibility in what I told people is just in a state of my intent and the core mission is festival and I think that that's going to ring true but I think it did take. It took a couple of years. It took. It took a couple years for people to come to the festival Nazi banners on stage. And they say well, has business model where you see your so-called Businessperson while we takin corporate dollars and we matched that with personal donations, we make sure all the ours are paid. We run a really skinny. Expense side of our business and then we had forty thousand dollars leftover that we donated using organizations in our city that even one hundred dollars is amazing. We donate forty thousand dollars so. But so the point is yeah, there's corporations involved but those corporations are not going to be front and center that if you WanNa be successful in Philly at least in the diy seen that kind of rub going to just says a outsider fan. you need to do things a certain way and I think. The way we're doing them is resonating with people. You know we get some Iras like I remember when we had. The votes if federal doughnuts are like Super Super, big music fans and I know one of the the owners everybody well said, I want to be involved. How do you want to be involved? Said how about we're going to do with this whole donut wall together music festival. All right. Cool. So I remember leading up to. Year one people were giving me the eye rolls over the Donut Wall Segali. Wall Festival Spree as pretty lame and I wouldn't have one of those. Heroes Donut Wall Festival. People get there and they're like wait donuts or free. Talking. Yeah, what are you? Should be at every festival at this. Gives we took it for granted imagine donor while now I mean no one wants. I know. I kinda rose into my question. My next question which was going to be is there any type of? Corporation that you will not allow to be a part of this or is it just like? Hey, if you guys got money will will show you in there. You know that's interesting. Question I mean I haven't crossed that yet..

Yeah he was he was Kinda got. Anybody listening. Doesn't know Chris. Cotton is philly comic who passed recently I didn't know a person but as you can see had impact a lot of people so check out his stomach as his funeral. It was just like over the great center. It was funny because I'm like all the comics spoke to all these great stories and then on the owner of the Raven Lounge he went up and spoke. It was like it. Seemed like you were just rambling. He wasn't talking into the Mike really good so like all. The comics boost gave him the light. So good so who somebody in Philly that you think is underrated. WHO's a comedian in Philly You're a big fan of that. Maybe not a lot of people have heard right now. Like coming up right now The Markets Lavar like I've been a markets. He took him to a few shows. America's We'll go coming up who you Big Fan of nationally nationally Of course the usual guys like Shapiro. Shapiro David David. Craig Yeah. His crowd workers crazy carrot top. Ah Let me see Kevin.

Did you guys like up anyway. So I met him well coming up. Do the houses like this. This is this is more like it was like kind of like a it was like a mom and pop comedy club whereas you really start from open mic level and work your way up. Tahir Liner Soda Person That got me started on to Ray was actually curves mentor to raise the one that introduced cub the Keith Robinson So I just want being around to and then Guy Spain court in spank is is he. It features like you on on the road. So spank was here. Lining their helium. This is two thousand fourteen. So every every time it was a like a hill honor icon a new. I would hang go at their shows to try to gus bites. I just to get that five a minute so I hung out the whole weekend. He was at helium. The do guest spots on every show ended up putting me up and I did good on everyone and We just stayed in touch which one there may be spanked him. Like you sent me one of your tapes. I want to see if I could get you. On a showcase showcase was a week later. I'd get an email like hey anthony. I'm a produce comedy central. Be Putting together show for Kevin Hart and we want you to be on it like literally how to have jumped out at you see holiday I was like I can't believe you won't be like Oh. Let me for my people but it was like even and I still like. They said they wanted me on the show but like things still weren't certain like it was like okay. We're interested so as the things going on like some watching like heaven spanked their instagram. And like they're still on their tour so I hit Oh spank like you. Am Emma definitely on your show. He was like they said. They like your tape I'M GONNA hit them up to see like if things are food for sure so on a Wednesday get a call like the comedy Central People WanNa Conference call like Hey Anthony you're definitely on the show We're GonNa need these things from you. So it was like by their Friday. I had to email them on a copy. Happy in my set that I was going to do and then we were taping that Monday and I couldn't get any stage time that week because I'm telling people I'm doing a show. Kevin hurt but nobody at the club. Believe me off right after I quit bouncing right so I came name the fully desk Sunday. I did the open Mike at Fergus but this was on. Uh April taped on April and Sunday actually happened the B. Wrestlemanias like an like a bunch of the philly com share like huge wrestling with a total right so it was like no comics nokomis Willie only at the open Mike That was a light crow and I just went up and just like I started trying to do my side but nobody was really into it anyway so like I just bombed right so it was. I was bombing with the material. I was supposed to take the next day so I was like man. I'm GonNa just do whatever you're not listening anyway. And so yeah it was like all the only stays on my gut before attempt to show was me bomb and I mean when the actually taping that was amazing. Yeah that was great. Yeah you're gonNA came out better and he's been he's been supportive and yeah yeah. He looked he looked a lot. It's like good. What's on the horizon? What is the goal? What is the goal for for anything more? What is the The dream obviously living. But what is the finish line if you would say so. Both so my goal for this year. I'm about to start turning these colleges and like I'm really going to tighten up my hour. Then I wanNA shoot my our sometime in the next year. Okay and then. I just WanNa from term with these colleges I wanNA build up. I'm building on my FA- my family's with these With the college students. I'm because they're the ones that the main ones the only social media so I want to push you over. The short end on their first impression of what comedy is over the colleges. Then move onto the comedy clubs then move onto theaters and then work my way up to where I'm doing arenas so you're talking about social media. I know I manage and help musical acts so it's so important if I reach out to an agent or a lawyer. The first thing they'll say is how many instagram followers. I have to have any user. Youtube Shit has so. It's the same in the communist effort. Talk about the numbers. That's how it is like the first few meetings I have with. MTV that same situation where it was like Ah To this one. I was still living having a fully. I took a trip up there to have a meeting with them and that was the first thing they asked me like. You're funny but you really don't have a strong Internet presence. That's right so it makes you respect the old school in our music and our guys and the agents and TV people back in the day because they had to trust their instincts and this is an easy job now like if you have one hundred thousand followers than people know is not easy but does the thing to know what the the job on the other side is the age the corporate world who to invest in. They need instincts anywhere. So but that's the thing too they pick these people with the the followers but it doesn't translate views because there's like they throw these people in these movies. TV shows thinking like okay. They got a bunch of all their fathers are gonNA watch like no their followers. He would've just ordering phones all day. They don't want the kids that don't watch watch. TV that don't really spend mind tickets right. Yeah so whereas like a true stand up comedian a true stand up comedian there has one million followers. They're doing arenas versus Internet comic. That broke into stand up. They're just doing comedy club venues. Because does this only a small manor them actually spend money. y'All see Youtube. People who have twenty million dollars. I'll play like the the T.. La here right right. Jose two thousand. But they're not selling dividend different energy. You're not building that like real real famous. The cult of you know I don't like anybody out there is like oh I'll watch him for seven seconds but not for our.

runs a really good restaurant he's in the middle of college would is like the South Jersey restaurant Mecca and he's holding his own it's a great place yeah well I WANNA go back with with you and and your story in terms of coming over here you are you're third generation is that my grandparents emigrated from Sicily right now okay so my father was born here and not I'm sexy generation Italian okay and so what are you uh-huh about about their story I mean there was a major that was sort of a major immigration from Sicily at the Early Twentieth Century Right Yeah I mean most of the people that came were four and most of the people that came didn't speak English anyway there's a as a certain irony in all of this one year old let's talk about immigration and here's the irony that I find Johnny I mean I have people in my own family and people in my generation who are very conservative about this and what I say is one hundred years ago would have been our Grandpa our two were being denied because they don't have an education then we'll speak the language they don't bring any skill so what's the point of letting them into the country and that kind of FIS face of work is about this I mean I'm here today my grandfather and grandmother came here and struggle to make it you know my my father was the youngest of seven and the only person to graduate from her school he had three children my brother and my sister all three have college degrees his first two grandchildren might my daughters both have masters degrees the American experience it doesn't happen in day in and and to deny immigrants because they don't have the skills of language lose sight of what America's about so yeah I mean that's a only at ut you know as beautiful I totally definitely appreciate that 'cause it's definitely does seem like we're reliving some stuff we thought we had moved it Jackie yeah we lose sight of who we are where we came from and then the next other is somebody that we should we want to shun it that's not the way this country's supposed to operate you start you you went to Dartmouth and earlier and we're starving for the people that are mothers in Hanover New Hampshire and it snows in October and you don't see the ground the toll make you're from this area right I was born in South Philly grew up in South Jersey yeah and I had a chance to go away to school you know and as I met tournament I I had a chance to go to Lehigh Dartmouth on Canada's same right and since Dartmouth was the furthest away I wanted I wanted to experience being away from home so that's why pick Dortmund and it was a good experience I really I like to play some a much happier now that it's coed when I was there it's a good school and really good at you know what I got out of Dartmouth when I remember going there and one of the professor said you come here and what you do is you learn how to learn it's not what you major in it's done you learn how to learn you take that with you and you know that's what reporting is about is is being a quick study you a lot of different stuff thrown at you and you've got to figure that'd be able to explain it and when I graduated I had I had again it's fortunate this is in the middle of the Vietnam War I had written shoulder playing football and rugby so I failed my physical so I can get a deferment to look for a job and I applied at a small news favor near where I grew up there was an opening for sports writer and since I have played sports the the editor knew me and I got shot and he gave me a try out and I started out as which writer and I spent a year reading high school sports and then kind of that was my journalism school that first newspaper that I went to work for was the Woodbury Times back then now closed unconscious spent four and a half five years there and that was my journalism school I started out as a sportswriter then became a news writer by the time I left I was the city editor so I learned about journalism you move to move to the inquirer and it was pretty quickly that you got put on the Atlantic City within two years I was in I I was in Gloucester County when I was in Trenton but then I got sent to Atlantic City to help with the coverage of the Casino Gambling Referendum in one thousand nine hundred seventy six and I and I was down there for that and then I was down there for the opening of the first I think six casinos spent I probably spent six or seven years in Atlantic City for the inquirer so you were there at the beginning of Atlantic's very the very beginning was air during the referendum and I was there covered resorts international's opening and covered bally's opening Caesar's the first five or six casinos hours every Saturday to make a move into realizing you know obviously the the underworld was a part of that whole gambling situation during the the run up to the referendum there was a lot of debate about was legalized game they always called legalized gaming gambling was legal allies. GimMe going to bring the mob toll annex city well the answer was the mob already wasn't Atlantic City what was it that became part of my coverage and then it just expanded out of there and I'm writing about casinos I'm writing about the industry I'm writing about the ethics I'm writing about the money in an writing about it or is the mob trying to get its hooks into Atlantic City the way it did in Vegas Russian and so I did a lot of that and then Angelo Bruno got killed in one thousand nine hundred and then things changed rapidly F- How'd you get those guys to talk to you in the beginning medium but the more I stayed with the more I become part of the furniture I mean if there's a trial there is a hearing on there and then it's just like covering any other beat right the more you do it the more people get to know you and some of them for whatever reason decide they want to talk to your they want to try to spin right so they could use so you can help for mob guys that's kind of unusual book with I was fortunate that the next generation wise guy seemed to like the attention in one I was I remember covering a couple here he's when I was Atlantic city that he was called to subpoena that testify embry was very polite but we're never say anything Komo no commoner it's nice to see you thank you very much whatever Nikki scarf oh I don't think ever liked me but he would never talk to me what was the next generation guys and it's kind of that John is guys had this American version of the celebrity gangster you know so you get involved in this at a time that's coming right after Godfather and godfather to mhm you think that also changed the way that people viewed the mob as opposed to how I I know we talked about a little bit about how the guys after Godley and and then in the Skinny Joey we're a little bit more into being on camera.

Details of the secret location. We're at we had a term I phones in our phones in there. Right. So, you know, part of your life is kind of it's almost like you're in the witness protection program. Yep. Yep. We try we try to remain a pretty pretty low-key. How's that feel because it's gotta be a you have a certain amount of prestige and power, but you're not allowed to to to to you have to have certain level autonomy. Like, what's that like for you? Well, you know, I've been doing this long time and this when I got started being an anonymous critic was standard operating procedure. And you know, you try to go in and out of restaurants to be as unnoticed as possible, you really trying to capture the experience that, you know, a regular reader would have. So you realize very quickly that it's in everybody's interest to try and figure out who you are. So, you know, at at some point, you you do your best you always do your best. And then at some point you gotta live your life and release a small town. Yes. And I live in town, and I'm a family, and then you start having interactions with people at school, and you know. At some you have to create a dividing line for yourself. That's acceptable. You say listen, I'm gonna live life in and be a Philadelphian when by family, and then I'm going to do my job as best as I can. And so, you know, I'm discreet, I take as many precautions as possible, but you know, unless you're going to get plastic surgery regularly. There's only so many things about yourself. You can change on a on a on a weekly monthly basis. Let alone going out, you know, three hundred times a year. So you go out three hundred times a year for work. Yeah. Do you still enjoy going out when you're not working? I love it. It's it's it's become you know, this is a lifestyle job. You know, you really it's journalism. I, you know, and but I work a lot. And, you know, this is my reporting going out to eat and being in restaurants and over a course of time, you know, you it is, you know, very few jobs are built around daily rituals like eating, and if you do it long enough and intensely Nuffie make an part of your. Life. It's it's it's becomes natural and second nature. So I'm just not one of these food predicts who's tired or blase or jaded of you still still excited about doing the worst. Oh excited because I live in such a dynamic and exciting place where there's so much passion. This is coming to sport. Right, right. This is part of blowing up the scene herlie houses going to say not lost since you got here. I mean, I've been here I've been here twenty one years and for the day, I got here. It has just been getting better and more interesting and dynamically changing and growing in in a way that very few. I think beats at the newspaper have consistently seen sort of a a rise in energy and quality and material that I've been I've been sorta blessed with being able to cover. Well, what do you think in able to city to have this boom, what was it that caused Philadelphia to go when you got here ninety eight there was only a handful of restaurants handful of pubs. And now, it's one of the world class. Eating and drinking cities in the country. You know, my theory has always been sort of an economic situation if you look at where Philadelphia is on the east coast between, you know, Washington DC and New York, and for the longest time that was like the chip on our shoulder that was we were overlooked, and that turned out to be really good thing. Because Philadelphia remains in my play in my opinion, the best place to live a city urban exciting urban life on hands down can afford to live here partake. In all the cultural things in Philadelphia has offered the way that you cannot New York City, you cannot in Washington DC in the same way. There's not the same sort of local character and spirit and here into it. There's there's no there's no quiz. Oh, ho Secondly, six months.

NBA Trade Deadline

NBA Trade Deadline

"Yeah. Mine is twenty two hours to the deadline for trade. Everybody's moving further away from the product of the bench and the Sixers got themselves a five and the rafters might have Kyle Lowry situation. Also feast your eyes on the us new putter twenty four year old promotes drill. Yup. Let go. Best holders twenty four his by. Get all that tad or older than his TV. Let's start with Tobias Harris to Philadelphia. Sixers get it near all star LSD. It's two picks said Landry Wilson and a Mike. We haven't Israel with us is this a figure deal for the Sixers or clippers. Well, because the question demands an answer I'll say the Sixers, but if you look at the clippers situation, obviously with getting a lot of free agents of cap space here available and if they end up not making the playoffs get to hold onto that twenty nineteen draft pick of theirs. It's obviously for the future. But for the Sixers it's right now. And this is exactly what teams that are close want. Their teams to do you go all in and Elton brand clearly did that with Jimmy Butler trade. And now this one I still question whether they can be the obvious top team in the east you want you have more town than that starting five, but your depth is diminished. And I don't know how much more Tobias Harris can give you when you're running stuff for Embiid and Riddick and Simmons and Butler already. But if I'm the Sixers fan, again, you're already that committed you might as well, go all in Lynton Yates, also. Well, it's about is a forty plus percent three point shooter. So he can give you that. However, the issue is that he's on expiring contract. So of this isn't at the top, you know, if this doesn't move the Sixers to the top will then it's a bad gamble, which is why I think ultimately the clippers probably win this because they've got everything they've needed in this situation. We're coop. Recouping all those players and picks is what you have to do in order for the clippers to improve. That's not always easy to pull off and actually get value back in terms device harassed. But right now, I think is he's right. If the Sixers can make it to the finals, this is justified whether or not you bring devised backing up, Bob, ruin your view of it. For the record. They just picked up one of the best kept secrets in the league. Most people do not know how good Tobias Harris is or that. He's averaging twenty two game but shooting forty three percent from the floor. They do points. Now, they they chlorate yet. They're the winner right now because they are now assembled one of the three or four best starting fives in the league. They're going for it it being getting to the finals. I don't know the day of deluded themselves to think that this team will beat the warriors when they get there. But I don't think they certainly think they can now beat the raptors the bucks and the Celtics with this team, and they may very well be right. So it's all about now for them. And as far as the clippers concerns over conjecture, sarahspain you. Yeah. The temptation is to go with the burden. The hand is better than two in the Bush and say this is all about the Sixers because as Bob Ryan said they've got one of the best starting five now and talent wise there as believable as anybody in the east to get the number one seed and go to the finals that being said, it's actually a bigger deal for the clippers because we already had the Sixers as one of the best teams in the east and with the potential to. Compete the clippers have now established themselves and very clearly made the moves that are necessary to say, we are a destination for two max super free agents in this off season. And that's a big change from where they were before. And what we expect it out of them. So it's a bigger deal for Ellen. I want to address it in second. But real quick since Bob said Philly's got a top two or three starting five in the NBA.
