They used the joysticks to send the sound. Throughout the stadium, or the arena. They were pretty I mean, if you think about that, if you think about that, that's pretty cool. Yeah. Well, they were innovators in terms of sound and they were always big into, you know, lights and their light shows. And you know, the stage things, you know, with, you know, the balloon animals and the lasers and all that stuff. That was one of the cool things about, you know, Pink Floyd. And yet again, you know, this, there was another band that you and I we were just in that right or wrong age depending upon how you look at it, that we never really got to see Pink Floyd when they were in their prime. I told you, I had a chance, but it involved smoking angel dust in the graveyard and I was like, I'm only not smoking angel past. What year was this?

"Yeah, not originally, so when David Gilmore came on, he was brought on as a second guitar player. He was the 5th member. So there was a short period of time where they were in the band together. Yeah, I was just saying before you interrupted me. There is there are pictures out there the 5 of them together, which basically would lead you to think. Yeah. They were a bit. You just said that they brought Gilmore in and replaced them. They didn't. At least not initially. I never said that. I didn't say that. Well back to tape. Roll back the tape. Anyways. The most unsung hero in that band has to be Richard Wright. The most under the radar, the least known member of that band. Is definitely Richard Wright. That guy, he was evidently a deterrent and irritant to them at first because he couldn't settle on an instrument. He played multiple instruments and he just couldn't they were like, you need to find an instrument. And they would play a bar somewhere. And there would be a piano. So he'd stop playing the piano. And they're like, dude, what are you doing? Come on, just play it, play play. So he finally settled fortunately on that. But he was one of the primary songwriters also in that band. Later on, Gilmore and watts took over more of the writing duties, but he wrote a lot and then he basically became the arranger of their songs. So he was always in it. He always had and we're probably jumping ahead a little bit, but, you know, him, you know, songwriting is a funny thing. You know, and you and I have talked about this about, you know, sting and Andy Summers and the police and whatnot and who gets writing credit. Even though there are contributions from other people in the band. I largely don't think it's fair. And it does cause a lot of riffs and strife. And that certainly was the case in Pink Floyd, where the three other members of Pink Floyd were alienated or alienated Roger Waters. And a lot of it was because they were fighting over songwriting credits. And they were fighting over money. The police did the same thing happened..

And how did you guys end up hanging out in this town. Are they goes baseball. I think chris and i played with a couple of the guys dan. Dan brosio yup. I'm tom stone. We were playing baseball. And then it kind of evolved into somehow getting a dramatic like just bombed it evolved as we evolved. But roy don't sell yourself short jas if you wanna talk about seminal effects that events have had on people's lives and and friendships and interactions roy. You played a huge role in all of us learning more about music. I mean you were the man when it comes to familiarity with and and a broad and rich taste in rock and roll and and that i mean so you know jas you may have sort of been introduced to a different world. Having met the two of us. But i gotta tell you roy. I mean both so just a little tiny bit of background. I didn't listen to much rock and roll. When i was a kid. I have parents who are super into music. But it was all irish folks. Scottish folk classical jazz show tunes that were you know albums of african drums and the music of athens at all. This crazy stuff that i listened to as a kid and pretty much other than like my brother and sister and listening to dark side of the moon. I didn't listen to much contemporary music until you roy. Like you open that door for me. Roy was definitely the music master of the prog rock master and also i think one of the one of the best and most vivid memories. I have of listening to music is in the red ford tempo that roy used to have and drive and there was a night where we are driving and listening to songs from the big chair. The tears for feel around the came out in eighty five. Oh yes now. It's crucial for people to understand that at this point in time like you didn't. Nobody liked any. No-one like us liked anything that was on the radio right like for the most part. This was an era of pop music on the radio and a lot of our attitudes. I think were default against anything. We were being fed through mainstream radio or we were counter culture in our little sort of sad. You know middle class working class westhaven way but like roy had a real understanding and appreciation. For how good that album was and like it was undeniably great. Even though it was successful on the radio. I just always remember that dry whenever i hear that song. You driving the tempo.

I don't even know. When the last time i saw was it has to be thirty years. No it's never spend forever. You guys look fantastic. Jesus christ guys but we can't see you because you're in the dark. But i think i think if you're not using that as a cloaking tactic you look pretty much exactly the same too so the three of us somehow lucked out in the genetic lottery. Here i don't know how i'm pretty much mostly but still close like the eyebrow thing you know what that's all about like the you know the sort of leonid brezhnev eyebrow look like ira has used to be perfectly straight now. We stray and squiggly them. Well just a little bit god So good to see you guys. It's amazing to see your is. it really is. It's incredible. I mean probably. I'm trying to think when i would have seen you post the sixteen hundred chapel street era if ever i mean i know wasn't hampshire. College was that that was you. Come up to hampshire. Then i did one time and we're playing around on in the in the parking lot or doing something. I don't know why. I remember that we were in the parking lot of field at hampshire. Just walking around yeah. That's pretty much going to hampshire. Was all about well. Actually you know what that makes sense. Because chris lived up there for a time during my college years too. So maybe that's right. I think that's what it was. I'm sure we did more than walk around the fields. that's all. I recall it very selective. We would have had to hung out. At least some. Because roy and i were living together in shoots burry the very early nineties right. Yup i anyone not eaten by a one eight hundred ninety right so chris. You lived the yellow school bus. I did well except we painted it. Silver black but now it was that a chris was added officially permitted residence at the time or did no one care about those things in shoots vary of nineteen ninety one thousand nine hundred ninety two. Yeah it wasn't. It wasn't just so we started out with the bus in wendell mass and then we well know so we. We built it in windsor connecticut and moved it up to wendell mass and then back to them. He was outstanding. It was a total. Rv they really really did a nice job. did you. Winter in the boss. Yes and it was pretty awful. It's worse than the winter you spent living on your porch oceanfront Westhaven and i don't say ocean imply that it was that it was like a luxurious ocean. Front i'm talking about bitter freezing winds coming off the ocean onto second floor so for listeners. As we'll just jump in this. I'll make sense of this through recording a brief intro. That explains a little bit about who you guys are and what we're going to talk about but for the listeners. Chris had a entire. I don't know if it was a year or a winter. You'll clarify a lot of these things but there was. I believe it was at least an entire winter where he attempted to live outside his sleep on his porch year round. I don't think you made it through the winter. I think you packed in like maybe around february or something true. That is exactly right. It was two years. It was junior year and senior year and i made it through the entire year with the exception. Basically of february ish at some point in february that okay sleet gathered on me in the morning. No like slush and spike. I got bit by nine different spiders. It was what it was i. I wouldn't take it back. And it was actually i i liked. It was free and easy. This is amazing. this is part of. What makes chris chris. This is part of what we're going to be discussing. Today is certainly prior to this afternoon. That is so so important in my mind and my life like i had never met anyone who would do things of this sort and the two of you guys for reasons. That will become clear as we talk or so important to that whole story. But yet chris's legendary attempts to sleep out outdoors for the entire winter. Which you know you were so close like you probably could have held on for another couple of. But i do recall. Now they're worst fighter bites a. You had quite an had sort of you have a multiple tent layering system going on. It probably wasn't like twenty below zero right. I mean how bad was the winter. No i mean you know usually usually it's imminent long island sound so you got temperature sink in the in the sound water so it was you know usually in the thirties or forties or the twenty s or whatever and i had four hundred and fifty five million pounds of blind on me and then there was a a polyethylene sheet over that that was held on by bricks. Then there was the sort of packing crate thing. I had set up to go over my head with the storm flat. That could could flat out right. Good good engineering. Absolutely yeah and it was plastic. All over that. I had everything i need in need of the packing crate. It was it was good. It's good stuff. I wish that had photos of this contraption. There are a lot of events in my life. For which i wish i had photo. Yeah not least of which because these days people don't believe that you did a thing unless you have Char right so i'm in. I'm in my karate class. And there's this like fifth degree black belt from russia. Who comes over and i start telling him and his assistant about the fact that i was in moscow. Nineteen ninety-one four coup. I was there when the soviet union fell and it started to become clear to me after about ten minutes telling the story that he didn't believe he just didn't believe it and then he's looking at my face and almost as if to say you can't possibly be old enough. I'm like i don't know what to tell you. I had pictures from those days. All over a couple of witnesses that. I managed to reconnect with facebook recently. It is true that you have made some sort of deal with the devil. Because you don't look much older than the events that we're gonna talk about which took place in one thousand nine hundred five. Yes the member of the summer of eighty five would not christian. Parents were away for that summer. This is a good place to start. So what i remember is that i was on the the ball fields of seth g haley middle school which was just a few blocks from where my mom and i at the time i think i was. I think it was after my first year at west haven high school. I was a sophomore. Or maybe it was after my sophomore year. That's why i'm fuzzy. On the details. Which i also blame the two of you and many of the events of that afternoon on you've got memory and while just sort of walking and doing whatever i was doing by myself which sort of sort of a funny part of the whole story because that's what most of my social life consisted of at that point. I didn't really have any friends at westhaven. Highschool to speak of. I met youtube guys. Who were up there doing. Whatever you're doing you're probably throwing a baseball or something. I had some familiarity with chris. Even though i don't think i'd seen him for quite a while. And then in however we ended up interacting on the ballfields. That then led to me going back with you guys to royce house and roy. I guess no one was home in my recollection. No one was really ever home and we we. I don't know how this happened but somebody had pink. Floyd live at pompeii presume on vhs vhs of it you had vhs of it and we prepared. Let's say this is family podcast. We all have children. So i want to be delicate. And how we refer to various events of this time in our life i will do so very glancing -ly but i think everyone understands what we're talking about. We prepared to watch a film.

Eighty five as you'll hear we're a little confused about the dates been long time but these guys on one very specific day in one thousand nine hundred five unlocked the whole world of friendship and music and books and opened up a pathway to other friendships. That really changed my life. There really is one movie and one afternoon with these two people that i can really point to and i can say well prior to that my life was like this after my life was like that and that was much much preferential so that one day nine hundred eighty five is linked to a movie. And that's why. I thought to do an episode about this movie and to bring on christian roy. The two guys who introduced me to this movie and two so much else the movies pink floyd's nineteen seventy-two concert documents film live at pompeii. And although it's a concert film there really is no audience side from the basic film crew this was filmed the actual roman amphitheatre in pompeii italy despite its somewhat history. There's multiple versions out there. There's a director's cut. There are other cuts that are loaded with other pink floyd performances and have nothing to do with the live at pompeii concert. The film actually is incredibly influential. And if you've never seen it before and you can somehow track down a copy. It's worth checking out. Because a lot of the ways in which the band was filmed the use of tracking shots. The visible lighting. It's really influential. It's been it's been a bunch of other music videos and concert documentaries over the years. The beastie boys did a video. That is inspired. By this david gilmour has returned to pompeii recorded a more recent concert there so it's a pretty influential music documentary and it's a very specific paint floyd just before their lives. Were about to change because the album metal was just about to come out and that's some of the music that they're performing live at pompeii and then they were also at the same time. Working on what would become dark side of the moon. So you're catching this band kind of at a crossroads and etta juncture where everything is about to be different in their lives. That's something i really relate to because that's what really took place in my life after watching live pompeii with chris. Chris roy in one thousand nine hundred five. I was coming off. I think my freshman year in high school. I was really kind of drift is could had some friends. I i had a life at home. I i was working but i never found it very easy fitting into my high school or the town that my mom and i lived in until i met chris and roy on this one day so to lure them into doing this episode a deployed a little of the pink floyd attention to mystery detail. I asked chris roy for their mailing addresses. I told them to expect something in the mail. I wouldn't tell them. What was it turns out the dvd's pretty hard to get by dvd's of live at pompeii from germany and have them sent to christian roy and when they opened the package they got a little slip of paper with a url printed on the one thing that you are to their browsers it took them to a secret video message that i recorded just for them so i haven't seen these guys in probably thirty years although we are in touch on social media so when they agreed to join me i was thrilled. I have so much appreciation and respect for these two people and while this episode or pink floyd may or may not speak directly to your high school life or experiences. If you do listen. I ask you.
Jury selection paused in Derek Chauvin trial
"Today. Jury selection was delayed for the highly anticipated trial of derek. Chauvin the officer accused of killing. George floyd last may on friday just days before shaaban's trial was to start an appeals court.

138: Wish You Were Here -clip
"And while dark side of the moon the wall in animals also have a central theme to them. Wish you were here. Has more of a more cohesive. Feel to me almost like a single continuous work. Composed of smaller pieces were the other ones collections of songs that have a common theme stitched together. Strictly my opinion. That's what that is and you are absolutely welcome to disagree with it.

I agree man I've been coming to chicago since the early days of brother cane We could have first. Album outweigh back in ninety three and straightaway man chicago and northern illinois radio in general. They really embrace this. And i feel like it's a relationship that i've been really fortunate to have for gosh man crazy number thirty years ago long time and you have some connection here too in chicago. I know steph from f three design. I think he does your local man. Stephon stephan does everything. He's yeah steffen. I think the first thing he did for me was help me. Get my website design in early two thousands and then Bizmart work for me. On my i guess my second solo album which was in a stick record and then when he has started warns. The arm in You know i've been a proud supporter of their clothing company and i love awareness stuff and they're just they're to of my favorite people on the planet. They're like family to us. Yeah i've known stephan for gosh. It's gotta be two decades three decades almost and i used to live with this rock band in chicago and he used to do. They're designed to as well in all their kind of marketing in and You know other kind kinda website and designing stuff. And i've known him so i run into him at shows like him and i always like bump into each other like. Hey man what's going on so it's always good to see him. That's amazing you've known him longer than i have. So that's That's really cool. And i'm i'm so proud of the growth. They've had their company and They're both incredibly talented. And it's inspiring you know for them to start their own kind of mom and pop business as they as they have and they grown it to the level that they have. I'm really proud to be a part of their circle. Well we got lots to get into but we always begin the episode. Every time we have a first time guest the same way and that's the essence of the show. The the question. We always ask just like every rock song has a hook. That sucks you in rock fan has a moment whether it's a band performance a song or album that hook them on rock and roll. What was it for you. Wow that's a big question The thing that hooked me on rock and roll was. I saw kiss on the midnight special on my television. When i was in the seventh grade and i it was the equivalent. I'm sure jay of our older friends. When they saw the beatles on ed sullivan that was the equivalent of that moment for me. No one's ever asked me that question to tell you the truth You know. I grew up my my folks to this day man. Both my parents love music and so it was a very musical household. The radio was always playing in. Dad would buy vinyl records of perjury artists pop artists and but yeah that was when i felt like it was something that was specifically mind. You know my parents not care for kids. They played black diamond complete with this. You know the rising drum riser in the pyro and everything manages your that. Messed me up preordained. I think it put me on the path for sure. Your kiss was an inspiration for a lot of musicians. And i think it was just the the imagery you know the the faces and the explosions and all the stuff. That kind of just pulled you in you know. The music was great too. But it just had like this power over young kids. I mean i got exposed to kiss back in like the early eighties. And i always remember knowing of them in knowing what they look like before i heard their music and then i heard their music and then i was just hooked. Yeah you know. I you know. I'm i'm probably a little older than you. So you know that midnight. Special show man that would have been nineteen seventy seven grow. This was this was early. This was. I believe this was between kiss alive. One destroyer and You know it was cool. Because i had a group of friends at school that you know we were all kind of discovering rock and roll at the same time and i remember that year in school that no kid and leonard skinner. I'm from the south. And so you know sweet home. Alabama was already the national anthem for us. And so you know the musicality of a ban like skinner We love led zeppelin and You know not long after that. We really got into bands like rush pink. Floyd bad company was big call. Rogers greatest singer of all time. You know things like that. So that set the table for me. I guess jay and then the two big bands not long after that you know when i finally started going to concerts where we saw thin lizzy. Ironically i saw them in seventy nine and that was a game changer for me and The the next summer. I saw van halen for the first time and i was cooked like that's it. I'm i gonna play guitar. You know. I have friends who go to college and get a degree and and and pursued that actually and it wasn't until i had already graduated junior college that i really ever thought of even considering it to be possible to play music as living especially for women coming from such rural backgrounds. There was nobody from where i came from. That was a professional musician. You know so. It just didn't seem possible.
"Read somewhere. That sounds like the DJ game you can play a guitar like a turntable. Yeah. Yeah so genius but yeah, I think we'll see now press statements and social media. We have the name of jet pack. Yeah, it's points for people to go for like for fans of and because like all those bands I just mentioned we can't we can't mention off there. Yeah. I know. So if I start saying well, um, I would like Pink Floyd's and they're not going to expect Rampage like, you know, you have to go you have to cut it down to write. What's the core free four or five bands hear that. Going to go but

A Little History- Based On A True Story
"They were talking about. Songs that are based on true stories. And, What's interesting about this subject? Is that a lot of times? When you see a movie that says based on a true story, it literally might have one aspect of an event that they base it on, but when it's the song, it's actually a it seems like it's more valid. There's more. There's less at stake. That film. And there's more accuracy than movies claim to be sometimes. So. We're covering I. Think they're seven songs here I realize you probably left went out and he did it on purpose. Which one would be the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald by Gordon. Lightfoot Never bring that up in polite society, his based on a true event. It is one of the worst songs and don't get me wrong. I like Gordon Life. She said it. You heard it here. I like Gordon. Lightfoot care that song is. What are the worst songs ever anyway? please understand with some of these things like my very first one. There's literally no way I can tell you the entire story, so I'm having to kind of give you guys the abridged version, and so please forgive me for that, because the first one is waiting for the worms by Pink Floyd, which is about the Nazi death camps of the Holocaust. So right like starting right off the bat. There is literally no way in a single episode of a podcast. Can I explain to you the Nazi Holocaust? But what I will say is that there was this war called World War Two. In the thirties and the forties as we all know guys there. There's mass extermination and for years Jewish people and other other people like the Romani Gypsies. Homosexuals were sent to forced labor camps. And Ghettos and then this thirties in Europe, a yeah, and in nineteen, forty two, they were actually deported to extermination camps, or or other kind of forced labour camps, whereas like Auschwitz was was. A labor camp and the death camp we were there on. Didn't go on our honeymoon, but we went to. Visit Europe we went to Poland actually. Yeah, it was It was one of the most important things that I feel like I. Ever made us do I'm sorry, we. We were in. Leipzig, Germany for our son's graduation and. We decided that since we were so close to Poland, which was about? It's about a six hour drive. Didn't turn out to be. Another story altogether. There's like one road to Poland. But we we rented a car. We drove to Poland. And we went to Auschwitz and. It, if you ever have the opportunity to go experience at, please do because it's one of the most important things you can do is to just be in that space and exist in that space. And just close your eyes and just feel. And it was one of the most. I hate touching. But it was one those moments where I could feel the past. Choking me. And it's overwhelming. It's incredibly overwhelming and. Just, the the the size the scope the scale that they did things on. Were saying and it was a machine. And so. Auschwitz had. A cyclone be they would lead people into the gas chambers. Drop the cyclone being and. I think it would take maybe seven minutes, and then they would just go in clear the bodies. And put them into the. The furnaces and they're six camps that were purely extermination camps, and trebling was one of them that they didn't actually think. Treblinka existed because they had before. It, they had a chance to liberate. The literally tore everything down and planted trees. And they didn't think that it existed, but they found infrastructure like in the ground, and then they found mass. Graves and things like that well speaking of research on the Second World War the series. Band of brothers is probably at the top of things to see and my gosh episode I'm going to site. Is your favorite episode nine why we fight his capture, the discovery of this and the meaning of what it was, and they do a great job of sort of keeping in that time-frame, instead of looking back with the knowledge that we have now just imagine. Coming out of the woods in finding this. Cluster of buildings and there's barbed wire, and there's people and you're not sure what it is and I think they just did a masterful job catching the how these soldiers fell when they when they stumbled across this camp. Yeah,
Venus Williams - Game Changer
"Hello everyone can t the tennis podcast day. Eleven of Wimbledon relived would have been women's Semifinals Day Wimbledon and would probably have been under the reef because looking out of my window in Putney, which is a? Mile and a half ish down the road from us, W nineteen is in miserable. Say That's great. Thank you, British weather for making some twenty twenty. Just that little bit extra great. But not to worry because. David Matt to talk tennis with. Seven hundred episodes David you just told me. We actually can mark a milestone because we've remembered it before recording rather than fully seconds off the recording. Yeah, we! We've celebrated five hundred, six, hundred one in the past. So yeah I'm fin quite proud. You know it. It draws me when you say it's women's semifinal state today because I'd kind of I'd forgotten that in as much as I'm so used to now talking about classic matches with you both watching them. We've just watched another one to the BBC of. Matches on every day that they're showing Wimbledon doing their own stuff online streaming matches, which is the one good thing I take from this whole period is the suddenly. The vast archive is just being. Put out there for everybody to enjoy, but I had forgotten. That is still Wimbledon and today would have been women's semifinals, and that makes me quite sad, yeah. I, wish I wish I could forget I get the impression that perhaps you haven't forgotten in the optimistic. Every cloud silver lining way that David. I Dunno, I kind of have in a way, I'm just so so invested in what we're doing. The the usual schedule of Wimbledon isn't isn't really in my mind so much. Just me then okay. Trip back to two thousand and five when. Storm strong was winning his seventh consecutive Tour de France title. Yup? The three hundred eighty made its first flight at the live eight concerts. Good friend of mine went to live eight in Hyde Park and she says it was mostly great until sting came on early evening when everyone was pissed in party made and some new material. Juno live eight is when I discovered pink Floyd and realized I two thousand. David Luiz discovered. It's. Matt's now. Sort of got me to to realize that I actually need to listen to albums full of Bruce springsteen and not just judge. We. Born in the USA. Correct. Correct get on that David's It was also the year that Britain implemented. The civil partnerships axe to include same-sex partnerships. It was the year that London won the rights to host the twenty twelve Olympics. And the xbox three sixty was released Oh and Pope John Paul the second died. There's a few. We've already done it two thousand and five much at the French. Open say these are these events that we didn't mention I around, so that was T-, thousand five I was working. My First Wimbledon as an employee I was a bull store assistant. Under the employees of one Derek Dimmer? Who was the head of the bull store at Wimbledon in done that job with his wife? Centuries I think. It was it was a job. which largely comprised heavy lifting and I loved it I couldn't believe my luck that I was working Wimbledon, even they. My primary job was lifting boxes of tennis balls and wandering around the orange practice with bin bag, asking players and coaches. If I could collect, they used balls of the practice, so they could be resolved to charity. I thought that was the best job in the world and I could not believe my luck and I went back the next year as as head bull. Store Assistant I was GONNA. Say You assumed to be promoted? Yeah, that was my first promotion and that I was GONNA. Ask You if you did a good job with whether you got a good review. Turns ends. It did I mean there's not? Much that can go wrong with putting balls and have been bank. But it didn't go wrong, and honestly I just. I thought asking asking. Tim Henman if he was finished with these tennis. Balls are just so. That was the coolest thing in the world. I thought I was the coolest person in the world getting to do that job.
How To Sleep Well
"Everyone and welcome chairman steals metro. Could it UK's mental health pod cost at the moment? We're doing things differently because of the epidemic, so which has into experts about ways that we can put a mental health and also find out about how things are going. To I'm going to be trusting Dr L. Stanley. He's asleep expert and the author of how to sleep well. We're going to be finding out how to get a good night's rest, and how to not like a Bro. In state for the last eight years, initially started working in St Elevation Medicine working alongside the World Air Force. Looking at things like hey. Like jet like shift shiftwork medicines, you can take than safely. Fly Medicines. You take a good night's sleep and safety fly the next day. I was involved in there for ten years, and I moved to the University of Savvy where we created and ran the world's largest trials slate aboard. He does a twenty four bed. Unit mainly looking at the effects of medication on sleep after about thirteen years that I became fame months. Oh, I travel the world now talking to people who listen about slaves, a mainly healthcare professionals, doctors nurses but I did talk to public and for various groups and charities. So that's that's my background so I've published thirty eight scientific publications with psychologists sites, geologists sleep. Scientists ECCENTRICITY but a board. Knowledge and experience of slave. I'm talking. During the coronavirus epidemic I'm so. A lot of people are struggling with their sleep at the moment. What kind of troubles do think we will be having? Troubles the people are having a sort of threefold. Rarely one is of course it's a time of stress. Anxiety for people and the thing about anxiety is some degree of anxiety. Good It's bodies early warning system it keeps US alum to threat, so we can stay safe, but of course once I caught his over. To a high degree of anxiety or stress, and that's going to keep your body in going in higher. And that's GONNA make getting to sleep a vastly more problematical. The second aspect of is just the lack of. Vitim moutain in our lives We don't have to get up to get the train to go to work. We don't have to commute home from work and therefore need our dinner when we've got a home so that lack of structure retain off what he's crazy team, but that lack may be affecting sleep and finally. Just, the the fact to the way lockdown the fact that we can't go out we. We may be snacking mall than eating. Papa meals were not necessarily getting access to you know a sufficient amount of bright light of sunlight. Keep US awake and you know the. We're drifting maybe but. We also can say this from another side. The actually this time of lockdown is actually maybe. Time to develop healthy habits to actually go to bed when you're sleeping. Because you can and wake up off the white man sleep V. A. N. Wake up naturally without an alarm clock because you don't have that commute into work of into schooling, your Home Office is just three feet away from your bed. Then why not trying to develop those healthy habits and for parent spend that time with your children in inducing a good healthy sleep patterns, so it's not all bad this this lockdown on not necessarily what about people who are finding it difficult just getting to sleep tool these days because of the stresses, the news or just generally work on around them. Well this is this is the big problem is essentially the the absolutely requisite full getting a good night's sleep folding asleep is you have to have a quiet mind if your mind is? Racing stressed you won't get to sleep so the biggest cause of sleep problems even before the pandemic was with stress was widely because people forgotten how to relax out to wind down of an evening. We most people bedtime routine is to switch the TV of have a P brush their teeth and to flop into bed, Vavra, expecting sleep to happen. It just doesn't so in order to get a good night's state. We need to have a quiet mind now how you caught in your mind. Well. That's individual. There's no one way of doing i. mean personally. I read every night before I go to bed, but that might not work for you so drinking camel multi doing mindfulness meditation. Doing Yoga listening to pink. Floyd vaguely loudly doesn't matter what you do. As long as you enjoy what you do and you're willing to do it each and every night, but you need to avoid watching the late night news avoid opening the gas pedal the mortgage bill, but before you go to bed and do something nice and calming and relaxing before we go to bed, say now maybe is the opportunity to instill that good habit in yourself.

We're going to the planetarium for the pink. Floyd show okay and I have some comments about that first of all these still do that. Yeah that was the thing back when I was a kid. Yeah it's actually the same thing is it. Oh my goodness so Thanks Aaron for organizing. This is and I'm glad we went and I enjoyed the show. But if I driven two and a half hours to Houston and two and a half hours back to see the forty you know listen to dark side of the moon and watch graphics that were originally done in like the ninety S. I might have been disappointed however as it turns out.

There had a great time That would incredibly good dinosaur collection mhm they multiple t rexes and Other we we joked that we're going to spend all day looking at rocks because the fossils are essentially rocks walks. The rocks that the fossils are in Iraq's the gemstone collection is rocks pretty rocks the pottery and stuff that that's done by the Americans. No no no no. The taxidermy. Stuff was not rocks. But I decided that for fun we would say we went look rocks and stuffed animals malls because that's basically There was some good stuff.

Wanted but there was a problem with the Internet and so that that truth wanted is going to air immediately after this I believe on the same channel. Same as we've done for other things so if you missed ocoee or if you missed wanted on Friday you'll be able to watch it. The the official premiere of the recorded version of a live show immediately following. If you can't get enough atheism today and you should do right.

It's right so we're not telling you who to vote for absolutely absolutely not. Well we would like you to vote. Though I can not voting as a good thing I can take opposition to other people to participate in the system. especially if you're going to be one of the people who complains about the right. which would you everybody complains about? I I loved hearing from people complaining. They're like I don't voting's a waste of time and all I'm tired of voting for the lesser of two evils. Well if you even if you view it that way where there's two evils voting for the less of lesser of those two evils is by your own admission the better choice and and if by not voting the worst of the two evils gets elected or gets passed as legislation you basically implicitly supported and endorsed the greater of the two who evils by not on sending a message. Okay yes you are are sending a message and don't get me wrong apathetic. I used to be on it. I I was largely apolitical. I didn't care. I didn't think my vote Matt. Oh I live in you. Know in this place and it's going to go read or it's GonNa go blue depending on what my vote doesn't matter. There's lots of other reasons listens to vote and it's not. I think I think when people do that. Oh I'm vote. Why would I vote for the lesser of two evils I think that's a a gross oversample simplification perhaps misrepresentation but it. Lets me know that they're at least okay. And and actually I've seen people post that I'm not gonNa vote for the last two evils. Let the let the worst or the of the two evils have it and let this whole thing burned down and crumble. So that we can start over again attend because Yeah the the sausage making making isn't very pretty there. Yeah it's also an issue of like the perfect is the enemy of the good and if you expect the there's not a single candidate or probably not even a piece of legislation that I would remotely consider perfect If anything politics is the art of compromise and if nobody's particularly happy happy the argument is that you probably done pretty good but if if you're waiting for perfection if you have some kind of Utopian ideal yeah then you're GonNa find yourself constantly disappointed and sometimes you go with this just better or this is good enough and this gets the foot in the door to allow you know. Allow us to continue continue improving.

Music & AI with Pablo Samuel Castro of Google Brain
"Am here at nerves continuing my coverage and conversations from the thirty third nerves conference and I am seated with Pablo awesome. Well Castro who is a staff research software developer at Google Pablo. Welcome to the PODCAST. Thank you thank you very much for having me. This is a real pleasure to be here. Awesome thanks so much. I am really excited to jump into this conversation. You are someone that I follow on twitter. And like we've had these kind of back in occasional occasional back in overtime and it's great to finally meet you in person. you've got some pretty varied interests You spend a lot of time. You're research focus on reinforcement learning. You also tweet a lot about music and arts. Looking at your background you've done applied l. l. stuff at Google on ad from and other things you know. Tell us the story like how to all these threads come together So well originally. I'm from Ecuador and they moved to Canada after high school to to come study at McGill So eventually I did. My undergrad in the navy actually actually did my masters and PhD St at McGill with throwing a pre-cup and garden and so part of the reason why stayed in Montreal and McGill was for personal reasons. I had I was dating someone. WHO's now my wife and I also yes and I also had a band so I've always always been heavily involved with music? I grew up with music. Learning music. Play music so that was very important to me and I didn't WanNa leave that so I decided to make that choice. I know it's not typical thing that suggested to do while you're in the same university but for me. It was more important to to play music so I graduated. Did I finished my PhD at around two thousand eleven and then I moved to Paris post doc and this was at a time where a isn't what we see here with twelve thousand people in this conference. In Europe's didn't have back. Then it was called Nips maybe four thousand people So I WANNA say Nakajima and I was working at the intersection that was very theoretical between between Markov decision processes and form over vacation so I was finding it really hard to find a job because I wasn't former fixation enough for the former vacation community and I was I wasn't reinforcement learning enough for the reinforcement learning. Okay and so after my post doc I I just feared already have two young kids. And if you're that I would speak going post the post stop for too long so I luckily got up from from Google doing applied machine learning and adds an extra said goodbye. Getting at that point I stopped reading papers and faster fast. Then I did a little quick stint in chrome doing a building machine learning infrastructure so backend infrastructure And Brain opened up in Montreal and mark. Belmar are who I had done. My masters with he was he kept in research. He was in decline for a while and he was one of the first people to join brain in Montreal and he put in a good word for me and So then they. They offered me to join them and I jumped up that possibility and I hadn't been following the research. That also is a huge shock to come back. I I mean when I was doing my research. We were all working on Grit worlds and in pretty simple environment because a lot of it was theoretical. We didn't really use deep networks at all for enforcement or any now so it was a lot of catchup trying to to familiarize myself with the literature and how the whole landscape has changed so throughout all this time I always kept with music. I had a a few different bands. Always I've always been performing live and writing music and The other thing is when I started my PhD. I was actually considering doing a PhD with Douglas AC as as well as with During a pre cup in something with machine learning and music but at the time the what was available for music generation didn't really excite me very much Because it was still in the early days and I fear that it would taint my love of music and I just want to keep my music site separate but when a rejoined the research world and I saw with the Magenta team was doing I was kind of blown away by by the quality of of things then. I decided to also start going along that pathway pretty almost I think the day after I joined brain This artists from Canada. He's called David Usher. He's pretty well known in Canada. He approached us wanting to the other. He approached us that he was actually. I had abandoned the nineties called Moist and really popular and and he approached us. He wanted to do an album using like ai techniques and so we just Matton Kinda brainstorm then thing. He gravitated towards the most was lyrics and and So Google who was my manager at the time was Very generous because I had just joined bright. And he's like. Do you want to take this project because I like music as it sure. That sounds fun. I had never trained a language model. We're still trying to figure out all the steep networks because I hadn't looked at that but yeah google that gave me that opportunity and and I learned a ton and that project it's still it's still an ongoing project. So relative to the first model trained with David which we actually made a video out of that like he wrote one of his songs with the first prototype and it worked okay but the model we have now is so much better and I understand all of this language modeling so much better than they did before. And that's just ah that experience kind of showed me to not be afraid of stepping out of because even with reinforcement learning which is the background to step out of that comfort zone and go into two other areas that I'm not as familiar with because they're all interesting problems and really trying to dig into the details. And for me the way I learned the most is actually actually trying to implement some of these models architectures and play around with him because you read about them in papers and you kind of get it fine but until you're actually trying to get it to work for yourself it's that's a whole different experience and I've learned so much just from doing this like jumping from a one to the next in a separate can field and learning about those architectures architecture's but while still maintaining my research and reinforcement learning. Well it sounds like you've landed in an incredible place to do that. Not just kind of the resources of Google and the people that you're surrounded with and have an opportunity to interact with but your role seems to be defined as like advancing research. You know the implementation absolutely. Yeah so I'm a software developer like. That's my official title. There's also research scientists that Google and until recently there was still like most people that are in research wants to be research scientists. Because that's like then you're officially doing science So my like if I had graduated say four years after when I graduated likely would have been applying for research research scientist role Back when I google. That wasn't really a maybe Sammy. Benji was a research scientist but probably about it And so I entered Google ads syringe India and sort of advance my career in that in that track and when I joined Google it was a software engineer. Develop developing comebacks. 'CAUSE engineer you get an iron ringing. I don't have that Initially I was a little skeptical because the official description is your. They're more supporting research. Scientists and so. I was worried that I wouldn't don't have the flexibility to pursue my own research interests. But it's been not at all like that so I lead my own research projects and I still support a lot of people with the engineering aspects of it. Because I've been working on this a lot so I'm more familiar with Google infrastructure and just coating in general And it's been a lot of the major major advances that we see in machine learning the I nowadays a lot of his engineering. So there's of course there's still math and there's still a lot of theory behind it but a lot of engineering and and I don't think it I think more and more it is but Few years ago I don't feel like dot the credited. It really deserved and so living in the sort of intersection of of pure engineering and pure research is for me super exciting because I kinda get the playground in both worlds and learn from both when I've got a a long Melissa things that I wanNA talk to you about but you mentioned Something that's got me really curious. The you know what it means to evolve a language model so you started this project with David And came out with this early crappy language model and have evolved over some number of been like uh-huh Yeah No. It's been like a year and a half it's been or actually it's been almost like two years. I think since we started it but two years calendar calendar wise. But but it's not it's not one of my main project so yeah exactly so it's when I get a chance that I that I work. Yeah so as I said when I started this project I had never trained a language model. I like like I knew what else were studied in school. But so the first thing I did was I actually Andrea Sherr potty has the Yeah this famous blog post host The surprising reliability of of recur neural networks. Something like that thing. Anyway that blog posts and they got his Kodansha Jordan's are played around with it and that was the the Vero model. I'm just over characters and then I started tweeting that a bit and and finding new data sets for lyrics and that initial model that was basically a variant of Parties model was the initial model that I had and so that was okay. They just a milestone like okay was able to train. This actually get it to do what I wanted to do. But obviously was Has All the shortcomings that these types of models do the around around. I mean the the tension is all you need. Paper had come out not not Not Too much before then. And so then I started looking into these attention models and and so so it seemed like the right thing to switched over to to the transformer model and started playing around with that and so the V.. Two model was attention model and it's had various versions of a two part of the difficulty that had with the language with training. These language models on lyric status at is that the lyrics said is not the best in what sense so the tricky thing about these language models is that an end for lyrics in particular is that you're trying signed to get this model to learn English kind of so how how to structure English phrases together but in quote unquote poetic way and to not be boring doing right because you're trying to use it for creative purposes and you don't want it to be boring so we train this model and if you look at it like perplexity scores and things like that it was doing pretty well on this lyric status but but then when you actually look at the output. It was extremely boring so because in pop songs you have lines that repeat often. I mean that's just how songs written so the model would tend to just repeat the same thing over and over and over and It also had certain phrases that would keep on coming back to just had very high likelihood so I wonder if you've talked about this. I say like it's Hanway but the average pop line over the last six decades is you know that I'm the one and That one came up a lot and you can also get you know that I'm the one baby. So that's the average pop line. It was boring and so the interesting thing about working with with with David is that I build variants of these models and nitro him and one of the things he remarked on. Is that It was very nonspecific in the sense that at the nouns that it was using it wouldn't use proper nouns. So would you like me. You he she they since very kind of ambiguous. If you think of Like the Beatles mister mustard polythene pam jude. You know there's all these I mean the fictional characters but they're very canvas and so then you can sort of the ground the song song in something kind of real whereas if you're just talking about him like hey you don't don't even though pink. Floyd has a hate us
Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick: Games Are Not a Platform for My Political Views
"Bobby Kotik says we're not the operator of the world's townhalls from an interview on CNBC that he gave few days ago. He's not wrong. They are the I would not want him to operate town halls. They are the operator of sick beards though yes mustache is really yeah This is this was all in service of him. Basically saying that he doesn't think that activision games should be a platform for political views wall. Well then why did they make Cooley call. Yeah call of duty is a pretty notable when you were able to jump over all the the magic bomb. Tom In Tony Hawk to they made their political stand. Unwitting commentary on class struggle. I mean seriously though you look at the most recent call of duty look at that shit they Like changing war-crimes from America to Russia and the other end of the spectrum from look at what the we've talked about this before with overwatch but like you know making a big deal of this character is gay and then like skins to hopefully in. Yeah so is this Bobby Bobby Codex hanging like us. Shut it down representation by this is Bobby Kotik saying I'm here to stop thinking. Stop thinking about taxes taxes about progress. Everything's I think. Meyer Video Games. Turn off your brain. Yeah Bobby Codex says back back in my day video games were fun day. There is something about fun. Is there another quote from him. That's just the operator communities that allow you to have fun through the Lens of video game is the other end of that quote. I can't have you politics at the same time. Also that yeah my brain would explode. Political Fund is neither. You know what I'm saying scalise you've been stores now. I mean there are some other quotes there about my responsibility to make sure there are communities feel safe secure comfortable and satisfied entertained that doesn't convey to me the right to have a platform for a lot of political of us. The right certainly like no. No we're talking about rights here now. activision division as a private company is under the same way that we can ban people off our message. Boards like of course activists there's under no obligation to like have free speech. I mean it's they banned people using swastika icons from call of duty when they had the in the years when they have a custom emblem editors and such. If you make that Shit you get banned. I guess they are. They moderate their community. There's no illusion of free speech. It's not about that. When people say all art is political what that means is like actively choosing to ignore politics is enforcing the status quo which is inherently taking a side like? It's like don't question things like there's no politics on chill yeah official stance like I'm not looking for every activision blizzard game to have a deep message about politics politics knowledge like I feel like it's it's not an honest argument. That people are having when they when they say shit like this. I think anyone with with half a brain looking at this stuff like Oh yeah. There's yes that makes sense. There are things you would identify as political in these games but but they don't want to have to sit there and back it up or justify it or or say whether they're still or try to say the bobby agrees or disagrees with the messages as of any given game. Yeah he doesn't want to have to be put in that position so it's a lot easier to say like oh well we don't you know we're just telling stories here.
At the Races With Nick Tammaro
"Churchill getting started would bind with they're the first really too big weekends they also course got the international later in the meet later in the fall and and that brings in some international shippers this woodbine mile just the mile either northern dancer the more you look at it. I thought was was was intriguing and there's plenty of other a lot of stars on the card including Holy Khaleda and pink Loyd. WHO's I I for a horse? That's one like twenty seven in a row. Nobody seems the talk about him or pay much attention to him. Bob Tillers streaking sprinter and here's a streaking sprinter victim Rio depends on where the sprint destination is. I think might Tapei at times but shop racing form a yes to the windows. Definitely Pink Floyd is is really sort of a marvel in terms of how he's performed well routinely I of course needed him to at least be third in this race last year in the contest and finished fifth so the pink floyd stop it will be nowhere near Wreck Stale Ontario and so his chances tomorrow we'll probably increase exponentially. He's in the early. They put the bold venture early on the card actually in fact when I went to the stakes together and put them up Derby Trail Oh. I didn't even look that that early on the card so I didn't even have to go back in fact I don't know if I did go back and put it up but there are a couple couple of very nice horses here including Carlin's honor the Jack Oxley Breezy York good old Yordan approaching half a million dollars for a chiefs would and Stewart Simon you know a lot of your a lot of your local players in the sprint scene but pink Cloyd is now twenty one twenty six and it really was late last year September October that he started to show some some frings signs of tiring and Kinda sputtered out at the end of the year could. Could he be beaten in here. I don't think so no it looks like he's he's back where he needs to be and I don't really know I guess other than Caroline's honor who's supposed to be particularly big threat to him in the spot so he he should get the job done. I mean it's always nice to see good. Horses do Well York than obviously was in much better form coming into this last year having run a good second pink Floyd Royd individual and and that was also during a period of time where pink floyd was having a really hard time getting out of the gate so he's a little ornery for a seven year old gelding and he had a little bit gate trouble really about four or five races in a row going into last year's bold venture he he's not he still not they really particularly the obedient or when it comes to getting out of the gate or being trained for it but he's definitely a little bit better spot with that right now so I think given that he's he's inform and should be sitting right off of the of the pace. If you worked in may be line to the front end. I think he should be okay before we talk about the Canadian the end the grade to which does start the cross country and will incorporate the pebbles and the nightcap at Belmont Nixon thoughts about last week at Belmont. We talked about this Jockey Club Derby and oaks and the Grand Prix. I talked to Andy on Tuesday. The Grand Prix was oddly contest than I thought but some some quick hits on opening the opening salvos at Belmont. I guess guess I'll try and keep it as charitable as possible. Given I took my shots at it last week but I think they played out largely. How we expected decide thought was a pretty impressive winner of the Jockey Club oaks overcoming? I think by all counsel was a pretty negative pace setup and winning is much the best running down Wonderman who I thought probably got a little bit more the run of the race and the American contingent as we expected in that race as well as the Jockey Club Derby were pretty much no shows and it could also be that the American continuing is pretty thin out by now. We'll talk about the pebbles and a little bit but the pebbles is going to be the ninth race for one hundred thousand dollars or more for three year olds fillies on turf going back to June sixth six and that's insane so the ranks of American horses that are ready to go a mile and three eighths early in September. We're really not very not very robust and and that proved out on the lady side and I thought Spanish mission I I actually thought he was totally out of position and thought that he was about to have a Jamie Spencer Special before he was able to overcome it and get the job done so a little bit. I know that the horse was capable of overcoming his writer. I I would imagine he he should be one of the better distant sources that we could potentially see over here next year given that he's going to be off now until the spring and there's just obviously connections that have problems shipping over the Grand Prix North American Jockey Club invitational brought to you by whatever most pretentious name of all time that was one of the most oddly run races I've ever seen first of all. I don't know how the hell everybody knew. Marconi was winning that race for fun and then to watch the riders of both realm and roaming union gather a hold of their horses so strongly almost as if they were waiting for Marconi to catch up and take the lead after he blew the break so that he could go one sixteen flat it was basically sort of the epitome of what we complain about left and right about American American dirt racing right now and you know in this day and age of sort of turf occasion of American racing where everybody points to turf races races are run like turf races. It's almost as if one horse makes the lead all the other guys say okay well. They're the pacesetter we're just GONNA go ahead and sit back and wait for them to come back to us and the majority of the time on the dirt that just doesn't happen even so shockingly Marconi was able to set a pedestrian pace and and went on with it and I I obviously would not have been a big fan of his at the price he went off often. We talked about how it looked like a bit more competitive race on paper the other todd pletcher trainee your to blame. I thought ran pretty well. He was able to stop the pace on the inside but you know I don't y horse like roaming union was in there if he wasn't GonNa GonNa contest the pace especially given that he's from connections like Michelle Navin who generally have a pretty decent idea how to win dirt racist so that was is a little bit of a head scratcher. you know look my personal opinion is that if there's any thought given to this turf triple. I really hope that same amount of money is committed to a dirt program and trying trying to incentivize horsemen to get there and run on dirt more frequently really try and build up the claiming ranks again because it's kind of embarrassing through the first three days of racing. I'm I'm sorry through the first three days of Racing Belmont there were seventy eight horses total entered to run on dirt and there are over seventy eight horses enter to run dirt in the first day at Churchill so I if the same number number of races and and that's that's not good. That's a big big problem that creates a big problem in the winter so that's my hope for it as it is. I guess we'll see probably a little bit better from Spanish mission in the Diese Lisa next year well we turn to Belmont today and into the weekend a couple of very good maiden races actually as part of that card and maybe we'll touch on them but let's let's look at the cross country pick five and it is comprised of of the three three of the stakes would bind the Canadian the mile and the northern dancer that you know you the top of your head. You wouldn't have thought it the three of them were as complex as actually I think they are and then the pebbles and the turf sprint claiming nightcap the eleventh at Belmont so let's start with the Canadian you know this is an interesting field the and really they'll competition. Idea should probably go off a pretty solid favorite. I don't really see how tactically you could make a real stand with her and she's a horseshoe. Obviously needs to lay back and make one run and you know those types generally at the mercy of the pace and this race does not look like it's going to have really any pace speak of so so she's going to have to overcome that now. I will say that you'll Rosario getting back on board to me feels like a very good thing. It does seem like she's just a little bit better horse when he's John Her but now the flip side of that is that we know Joel style. He's GonNa take her back and let her make one run so I mean they're they're going to. There's going to have to be some pace in here that you can't really foresee and I guess the hope is that Dixie moon and or starship do believe maybe show a little bit more speed than they have before. That's if you're back competition of ideas with any great fervor because obviously what this is shaping up as a situation where Holy Helena has a big tactical advantage on the other favorite and and she's been effective at Woodbine in the past. You look good winning the dance smartly last time Jimmy was giving a little bit of time since and I think she's a horse that that will really get the run of the race and and that's GonNa make her toffee. This could be a situation where on your your pick five. You're really leaning on those two pretty heavily and maybe you could give a little bit of a nod holy Helena on one one more additional ticket. I did want to try and make a case for to Riga and my hope is the Tyler Galileo. Maybe a little bit more aggressive with her than Johnny. Velazquez was was last time he finished just length and a half behind the competition of ideas did get into a little bit of trouble amazingly. She got into trouble in the three-horse rates which it happens of course and with a little bit cleaner run maybe second off the off the layoff off the ship in we can see some improvement grim oceans been a little the little laid back with her she she ran on July twentieth didn't work until August thirty first but might be one of those horses that can stay fit without doing that. I I'm always very very in tune and was looking at his horses in these kind of scenarios as they they generally overperform relative to their odds so I'm GonNa go ahead and include Theresa's well the and will include could starship jubilee more than likely those two has backups because I think they each offers some appeal at what should be better prices than the two chalks should note that ah Jimmy Jerkins after sending Holy Elena opt for the dance smartly basically is as left her there and oh my Gosh the stronach trainer but my Woodbine what is yes thank you Mike Doyle. Mike Doyle has been handling and Jimmy is on TV with seth deny after after precision is one and he told the story about Jimmy said he got the notification is it is stable mail all that Holy Helena had worked Labor Day weekend and so gets the notice he opens it up and Airy Jerry Sees Holy Elena six longs one eleven and three Jimmy said got on the phone to this is Mike what's going on up there and he said I really don't worry though or she did it easy. Did it easy the track was the polly was slick. It was cold or whatever yeah what eleven at three and you know what I did. I brought up with Jimmy that great story that is his father told about Bo purple and going out to Hawthorn for the Hawthorne Gold Cup on Tuesday the race as was Saturday and on Tuesday he gets a call from a Chicago sportswriter and said Jerkins. I wanted to ask you for comment about outvote purples work and said what about it. He says well he he he went a mile in one thirty. Two and three Korea broke the track record or mile. I think he went to violent at eight and broke the track record. What what forty seven forty six shades or something and and and Jerkin said you know? I'm sure he'll be fine and sure enough. He went out and won the Gold Cup but that was funny. One one eleven and three
Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders And Kamla Harrison Hulan Castro discussed on Meet the Press: The Lid
"It's been awhile since we've used this music but you know you gotta now. The reason we're using that music yet again is that we just went through the end of the second fundraising period for presidential candidates and if you're a longtime listener you know that at the end of the first fundraising quarter which was January to March that was a huge deal for us. We did many episodes of. The Lid about who's raising what's and I think we use that pink floyd song so often we almost had to resort to techno remixes just to keep things different this time I am still of course super jazzed about that all these numbers but they are not quite as big of a deal as they were three months ago. Here's why back in early April there was so much we just didn't know about the Democratic field who would boom or bust early did Bernie still have the juice could someone with little name I._D.. Breakout of the pack and the first quarter numbers all the way back three months ago help to answer at least some of those questions that Oh work posted did a huge number back in those days and he looked like a potential breakout star with a ton of cash in the bank to help him with that sent Bernie Sanders did well Elizabeth Warren was spending hand over fist and made a lot of people question. If her operation could last now we just have a lot more information from sources. That aren't the Federal Election Commission as much as we love our friends at the F._C._C.. We've got a ton more polling and we have the first set of debates under our belt and so the new fundraising numbers did more to confirm what we already suspected than to give us a ton of new information for example in the last few months we'd seen better will work crater leader in the polls and have disappointing debate performance so we expected a not quite Texas sized fundraising hall from Him and that's exactly what we saw in fact. He only raised about half as much in the last three months as he raised in his first. Stay as a candidate earlier this year. We've also Seen Elizabeth Warren climbing in the polls and she posted a strong fundraising hall that reflects that narrative to and after a strong debate review for both Kamla Harrison Hulan Castro we saw them get a little bit of a bump. After a strong debate review for both Kamala Harris and Hulan Castro we saw them get a corresponding bump in cash raised as well and maybe the biggest story of this quarter other than beddoes cratering Pete Pete Buddha judge had a monster fundraising number which kind of confirmed with the rest of the data out there was telling us that he had surpassed a work as a favorite new young comer on the scene now don't despair if you're hungering for more. We're on all of this because shameless plug number one. There's a lot more info on all these numbers coming out you on this week's episode of Chuck Todd Cast from meet the press which is guest hosted by shameless plug number to me so.
"pink floyd" Discussed on 77WABC Radio
"Sounds like Pink Floyd. But this guy's name, Jeff Healey. The late Jeff Neely. Was that he's talking about how he can see his date? Guys got you in their site. But it's a great song. Did I do? What did I say? Hey, but that's the that's all I said he was blind eye to so said to read when I go to this guy about six months ago that he died fifteen years ago. It's a beautiful song. Anyway. See her, even though he couldn't actually see it. Isn't that beautiful? That is lovely really. So it's been a terrific show. Bill O'Reilly was great. Fantastic. The two guys with the toll socks brand toll socks folks. Their dad died, sadly on nine eleven but they're selling toll socks giving ten percent. These guys are like seven feet. Tall tall order.
"pink floyd" Discussed on KLBJ 590AM
"On the top. Roger Roger waters is considering a performance of the wall along the US Mexico border. Don't believe that. Fake news. No way. He was promoting Pink Floyd exhibit. He spoke about his idea of jamming the wall along the border, reportedly he was joined by drummer, Nick Mason before this can happen. There were I need to be an awaken against these far-right policies. The sewers are a gorge by greedy and powerful man as I speak to you. Says Roger waters. Now. Now, it now did this really happen. Shirley, nineteen ninety in July of nineteen ninety waters actually, performed the entire album, Germany to celebrate the fall of the Berlin Wall that could be that. Did that happen? I could probably heard the header Pink Floyd junkies. That'll know that answer that I could see more so than Roger waters going to mcallen. Yeah. By himself. Yeah. The play in front of twelve people. I think I would be. A kid. I mean, it sounds funny and cute, and we all like to play play off of it. I know now. I. Just going to go by himself to do it. Really? Kucic? Oh, Pink Floyd fans are pretty pretty serious and militant here's video Roger Brian waters. The Berlin and a hat ninety. Yeah. Bryan out of Pink Floyd or Bryan Adams of Canada and the bad pop songs of the eighties. Think floyd? Okay. Yeah. I'm saying nobody would want him there in the eighties. I actually it live Pink Floyd junkies is is this true..
