'We started running': 8 killed in Texas outlet mall shooting
"9 people, including the gunmen were killed in a shooting at a Dallas Texas area outlet mall Saturday afternoon. Terrified shoppers fled in panic after the gunman opened fire at Alan premium outlets, police chief Brian Harvey says an officer was already there on an unrelated call. He heard gunshots, located the gunshot, located the shooter, neutralized the shooter, neutralized the threat. We believe at this point that the shooter acted alone. Video shows the gunman getting out of a car shooting at people on the sidewalk more than three dozen shots could be heard. Alan Mayer Ken Polk. We all want the victims and their families impacted by this tragedy to know that we will wrap our arms around you. Audio courtesy WFAA, mass killings are happening in average of about one per week, according to a database by The Associated Press, USA Today, and northeastern university. I'm Julie Walker.

"A quite personal story too. So anyway, here is my conversation with Terry McCoy, thanks again for listening to the series all week. And thanks so much to everyone at the Polk awards. For making it happen. Terry, thanks so much for doing this, man. Hey, thanks for having me, max. Where are we zooming from? Where are you exactly? I am in cloudy rudish narrow right now. In southeast Brazil, we're living the ipanema, so we're along the beach, so it definitely not a hardship posting, but you know, it's exciting nonetheless. You're not allowed to complain about exactly where you are, but man, I would be surprised if you didn't have a few complaints about what it took to do this series that you won the Polk award from. I have to tell you I have so many questions about it. But maybe to start, you can just quickly give me a summary of it and then I'll get into all my questions about your various complaints. Yeah, sure, no, I appreciate max. So the Amazon rainforest is the most important tropical rainforest in the world. And it holds an estimated a 123 billion tons of carbon. And what that means is that if the Amazon goes bust, that's going to destabilize dramatically the climactic balance of the world, any sort of hopes that the world will have of curbing catastrophic warming would be undone. That's bad news because the amazons on the brink. The belief is if about 20 to 25% of the Amazon is lost, that will then unleash sort of destabilizing climactic forces that will claim much of what is remaining. As of now, about 18% of the Amazon has been knocked down. And so scientists warn and believe that and we're already seeing that dramatic change is happening in the forest and signs of extraordinary science and distress, and so it's not just the climactic models that are showing that the amazons on the brink. It's just people's lived experiences in the force, the force today is a hotter, smokier, drier place, and virtually anyone living there can recall. And so the idea was to look at each sort of different system or mechanism that is driving the destruction of the Amazon and do a story about it, whether that is, what is the driving force of deforestation, one of them was beef, you know, this worldwide desire for beef is killing the forest. How is it that we've lost so much forest and people continue to knock it down. So, you know, we looked at like impunity in the Amazon and how it is that people continuously get away with environmental crime. So that is the way I try to think of these stories when I got into it was how are we going to tell a climate story as a true crime story? That's such an interesting way to hear you articulate it because I think when I started reading it, I assumed that it was more traditional climate change reporting. The first story in the series kind of breaks down how the rainforest works ecologically. But pretty quickly it becomes a human story and to hear you describe it as a true crime story, that sounds totally right, which is like, this is not some giant thing that is just happening. It is not related to massive industrial factors that you can't really pin on any certain group of people. It's really personal. Yeah. And so, I mean, ultimately, how the Amazon got to this place is a story of intent. It's not happenstance. It wasn't that the Amazon force unwittingly went down this path. It has come to the brink of existential crisis as a result of intentional policy choices nearsighted policy choices, the Brazilian government put into play with the assistance of international financial groups and with the acquiescence of international diplomatic groups. And unleashed this sort of hobbesian type environment in the Amazon, where anything goes. The Amazon has always been this impenetrable force that people thought was unconquerable. But you know, what the Brazilians did and what the world did along with them was open up the force just enough to be able to get inside it, but not they didn't put enough resources into be able to maintain order. So it became quickly very chaotic terrain and violence erupted as a result of that the absence of the state as a result of a lack of order. And so it becomes a very personal story and becomes a very sort of biblical struggle for land, you know, the animating themes of how many conflicts throughout the human history is happening right now in the Amazon ultimate comes down to blood and land. And that's the Amazon. The way that you are talking about it, the clarity with which you see that biblical struggle, did you have that before you started this series? I mean, you've been the bureau chief in Rio for several years. How much of this was clear to you before you started the reporting and how much did it clarify as a process of the report? None of it was clear. None of it was clear. I mean, the Amazon went first got to Brazil, the Amazon was an arena of mystique, you know? You think about, I didn't even understand that it was beef, you know, cattle ranching that's destroying the forest. But after you spent a fair amount of time in the Amazon, it becomes quite clear what struggle is. And how human that struggle is. People in Brazil oftentimes are afraid of violence, but people are particularly scared of violence in the Amazon because the threat is very real because they know people who have been killed because they have suffered threats themselves because the land that they live on might be a tenuous situation that could ultimately be undone by some sort of bigger boss that wants their land and is threatening them. It's the same themes of what we see in the 1850s in the wild west. This is what it is today. And the same sort of struggles and themes that we saw there between indigenous communities, opportunists, gunslingers, and effective policing, all of that is happening today right now in the Brazilian Amazon. And I wonder how for you walking into this vast sort of biblical story, how did you manage what must have felt like very real risks to you personally? I mean, people are killing each other over this land. They're killing each other over the knowledge of what's happening on this land. What did that feel like for you? How did you get over that? Yeah. You know, I've been reporting on the Amazon and these issues for two years. And it went from belie the ignorance to terror.

"Thinking about no matter what I'm doing. And so obviously, in this instance, where it was very dangerous, we were in shock. I'm shooting. I'm just thinking of like documenting the moment, but I'm sure somewhere in my subconscious, like all of those elements of light and composition are coming in because it's second nature to me. You know, it's like I've been doing this so long. I think if I have time to compose a photo and even if it's of a horrific topic, I will always try to make the most beautiful photograph because I want people to look. I want people to ask questions to be engaged to pay attention and often that does mean the intersection of beauty and horror. So I think it's part of my job to get people to look and pay attention. And you've been asked, I'm variation on this question, probably 10,000 times in your lifetime. If not more, but why do I go back? I was going to try to phrase it slightly differently. So it would seem like a different question, but is there a moment when you look back at how close that round was and say, okay, I did capture this moment. So obviously it was worth it in some sense, but does it get more difficult to do? I mean, look, I should be dead so many times over. After Libya, I mean Libya. There was not a moment in the kidnapping in Libya where I thought I would live, you know, Iraq. I was kidnapped for a day, but it was still being held at gunpoint with guns to our heads for, I don't know how many hours. It's just over and over. So I think there's not a moment where I say, okay, I'm going to quit journalism. You know, I'm going to stop photographs. Yeah. There's just that moment just doesn't happen to me. That's not how I function. This is who I am. It's not like a job for me. It's not doing this for a paycheck. But I think certainly I have to sort of take pause. I have to sort of think about how I process things and that's a very important part of being able to continue doing this work over so many years is just being sort of in touch with myself and what I need if I need some self care if I need to just step back a little bit. I think in Ukraine, the irony is I think I've been playing it very safe. Yeah we have spent a lot of time in dumbass, but I'm not like at zero line like a lot of my colleagues. Maybe a little step back. I don't know what that means, given this is an artillery war, and a lot of artillery can fly. I don't know, 40 kilometers. But I feel like I'm playing it safe. And I feel like I'm covering a lot of the civilian stuff, but I guess as we see civilians are just as much target as combatants. So I'm not sure what that means. Just thinking about your meeting with the husband of this family and then looking at just even the photographs you've just taken from Ukraine, funerals, people who have discovered their loved ones who have been killed in brutal ways. Being on the close to the front lines, like your life has been filled with a lot of people who have experienced suffering. And I'm wondering to what extent those people sort of populate your life and you try to hold them close and keep them in your life or you try to put them aside because it's just too much. I, you know, I don't think I'm the norm, but I tend to hold people close that I've been through or survived things with even if I physically wasn't with them if I have a relation with them. You know, I'm still friends and still correspond with the father of a soldier who died in front of me in 2009. He, the father and I are still in touch, you know, I'm still in touch with some of the victims of sexual violence, were human beings above and beyond anything else. And for me, I hold relationships and integrity and dignity above anything else. And so yes, I think a lot of the work I do is very hard and very painful and some of the people I photographed ultimately have decided, they don't like that picture anymore because it brings them too much pain. And that I understand as well. It brings me pain. I just believe in this work and I think that we all experience a lot of pain and trauma and I think sometimes that can be channeled into good use. Well, Lindsay, thank you for taking this time to talk to me and thank you for your work. Sure, thank you. That's it for today's Polk award show, we will be back with another one tomorrow. My thanks to Lindsay for taking the time, her book again is called it's what I do, a photographer's life of love and war. Our show today was edited by Susan Peterson. I'm Evan ratliff.

"And welcome to the long form podcast. I'm one of the co hosts Evan ratliff. It's poke week here, which means that each day we're talking to one of the winners of this year's George Polk awards for journalism. Today, I was fortunate to get to talk to Lindsay adario, who is to put it simply one of the greatest photojournalists of this era. Her conflict photography and other work is incredibly acclaimed. It appears in The New York Times and National Geographic. She also wrote a memoir some years back that I really recommend it's called it's what I do, which recounts some of the harrowing experiences she has been through in her work, some of which come up in this interview. But today we were focused on her photograph that won this year's Polk. It is a devastating photo of civilians in Ukraine, killed in a Russian attack, it was on the front page of The New York Times. It went all around the world. It's probably the defining image of the Ukraine war so far. And we talked about how and why it came about what her thought process was around it, and really what it means to take a photo like this. So here's me with Lindsay adario. Will Lindsay, thank you for coming on the podcast and also congratulations on the poke award. You're welcome. Thank you so much for having me. And before we talk about the photo, I wanted to ask you a little bit about how you sort of oriented yourself in the war to begin with and maybe help people understand everything that goes into ending up in this situation where you took this photo. So when the Russian invasion happens in February of 2022, what is sort of your response as a photographer? So actually, The New York Times asked me if I would be willing to go to Ukraine in December. So I think they were obviously ahead of the curve and just trying to get everyone in line. Everyone who would be willing to cover the conflict. And so I entered Ukraine. I flew into Kyiv on the 14th of February 2022. And that was when Russia already had, I think, a 100,000 troops at that point, amassed on Ukraine's border, and it was pretty clear they were going to invade, but you know, everyone thought diplomacy might still work. So when I went in, I headed almost immediately toward eastern Ukraine where there has been a war since 2014. So I was covering the line of contact and really sort of a lot of the villages where the intensity of artillery shelling and fighting between Ukraine and that Russian occupied territory had picked up. And so when the war started, I was in severa done at switches in eastern Ukraine. And I was with a few New York Times colleagues and we kind of had to make a decision, you know, do we stay in the east or do we head back to Kyiv? And I was with Tyler hicks and Tyler's staff. And so it was really up to Tyler to decide kind of where he wanted to be and I would be the second person. I would be kind of like wherever he didn't want to be. And so Tyler wanted to stay out east. And so Andrew Kramer and I immediately started driving back to Kyiv. It takes, you know, it took almost two days. We drove all night, trying to get ourselves back to Kyiv. No one really knew what would happen. I mean, it was really chaotic. It was obviously pretty scary because, you know, no one really knew what to expect. I mean, so we made it back to Kyiv. There had been missile strikes on residential buildings that morning, when I drove in, I was in a separate car, Andre duke chak, who is a Ukrainian journalist and videographer. He and I drove in together, went immediately to the site where there had been a strike that morning, covered that, and then went to the hotel. And basically for, you know, leading up to that photograph which won the poke. You know, it was covering daily missile strikes covering Russian troops getting closer and closer to Kyiv. It was a lot of uncertainty. I mean, there was a moment where, you know, obviously The New York Times had asked us to make a decision. Do we want to stay or leave? Because, you know, no one really knew how bad it would get. We all thought that there would be air strikes immediately that the electricity and water might be cut. So we were taking all these precautions and preparations just in case, you know, we had to go live in an underground parking lot. And really it was just really intense and scary. And just to step back as people might not even have a basic understanding, you've covered many, many wars. And when you arrive in Ukraine at all, are you already oriented? Like, had you worked there before and in terms of the geography and where you might want to go and a fixer or a translators and do you hook into a network there or you on the ground having to figure things out as you go? So, I mean, The New York Times, you know, it's a real privilege to work, obviously, for The New York Times, because they have usually a great network of local journalists who have covered the region a long time who are very knowledgeable and help orient me. So I had only been to Ukraine once before for The New York Times Magazine in 2015, where I was working in the east on a story about a child who had been displaced by war. And that was the only time I had been there. So I really was not oriented. I mean, I was very lucky because The New York Times video department had been working with Andre dube Chaka as a producer and a fixer. And they were leaving because obviously no one knew if the war would actually start. And so they gave his number to the photo desk and I ended up hiring him. And he has basically been, you know, my everything for this war. I mean, he's been my partner in every aspect. We talk through everything. Our comfort level and danger where the story is, what we want to cover. And so we both were very interested in heading out east because that's where historically there had been the fighting. And so we thought that would be the most interesting place to go. So that's where we were. And I was looking back at a different story, not the one with this photo, but this story about this teacher that you sort of followed who became a volunteer fighter. She decided she wanted to join the fight and she trains and then she goes on to the fight and she comes back and you followed her over a long period of time. And I noted in that story that it said two days after the Russian Russia began its full scale invasion, you met her. And it made me wonder, how are you kind of like gathering

Florida mass shooting suspect killed during police pursuit
"A man suspected in connection to a drive by mass shooting in Central Florida last month was fatally shot by police after a chase. At a news conference Monday, Polk county sheriff Grady Judd says Alex green, a 21 year old with a long rap sheet, was under surveillance in eagle Lake Florida when he fled. Bad decision. He won't make any more. Lakeland police chief Sam Taylor, says investigators think Greene was involved in a January shooting that injured 11 people. We are very confident that he is in fact involved to what extent we don't know yet. Judd says green crashed into a business in Winter Haven, ran into traffic, dragged an elderly woman out of her car, and then tried to run over Lakeland police captain Eric Harper. We didn't choose to shoot him. He chose for us to shoot him with his conduct. State attorney Brian Haas says a task force will investigate, I'm Jennifer King

"Much star delight because we get another book. Slightly slightly off, we're not really slightly off topic because I was just admiring your amazing title. And I just knew you were talking about the end and I just thought, is that how did you come up with that title? Because it seems like it ties in really well with what you were just saying. Do you know that thing you do where you're writing a story and you're in the middle of the draft and you hit a line and you go, that's it, that's the title. Yeah, I know that's how I found my last title and it's not how I'm finding my next item. I found the title literally in the middle of the story. When I outline the story I had a scene that was right at the center and the line came in there, and then I used it, I kept it there. And then I use it at the very end, again. Is this just a great title? Yeah. I don't know. Sometimes long titles, you're like, oh, you know, they can work and then some just don't. Well, this one does. Jealous of your title ability. Sometimes the magic just happens like that. Other times, most of the time. I lay on the ground and roll around and make alarming wookiee noises because I can't come up with the title. I just can't. I'm glad I'm not alone. I thought that was some kind of ritual you're going to describe of how you came up with the title. You know, I was wrong. Just to spare. Well, maybe Charlotte, you've just inspired what she'll try next time. What we'll all try next time. I tried to think of the world I'm inspiring with cozy mystery cake and film noir and rituals involving innocence and rolling around making wookiee noises. It's an interesting future project. It's good mix. I like it. Well, what I really want to do now is Phil noir with you talk about Skywalker. And so it's got to be some wonderful reinvention of Star Wars. It's like film noir, surely. Oh yeah, probably. Actually, this is a little bit off topic. But one of the things that made me fall in love with noir was actually because I'm a figure skater and for fun. And there was this bizarre little TV movie. With all the American figure skaters of the 90s and they did it as a noir thing. Where it was like Christian Gucci and yeah, I think it's probably on YouTube somewhere, but I recorded it on TV. I used to watch it all the time and they do this for you. No. Oh no, this is amazing. I'm gonna have to look you up, but yeah, it was amazing. Wow. I need to know about that. That is great. I just think the competitive figure skating is probably one of the best kind of social environments for writing a story that

"Aaron lammer. This week we're running interviews with winners of this year's George Polk awards. This episode features an interview with asmat Khan, who has been on the show before. She won alongside two other New York Times reporters, Dave Phillips, and Eric Schmidt, the military reporting award for their investigation into civilian deaths as a result of drone strikes. Here she is. Welcome back to the program, asmat Khan. Thanks for having me back. At the time we last talked, you had already started writing about civilian deaths from American military air strikes. So this is this has been a part of your life for a while leading up to the series of articles that you and your team won a Polk award for. So this specific series sort of take me back to when did you first hear about the air strikes in question? And as someone who's been in the air strike world for a while, like are you, do you have Google alerts for air strikes set up? How do you, how do you monitor what's going on in this realm? That's a great question. I was in Pakistan reporting back in 2008 as America's drone campaign there. Just escalated. And so, you know, the kind of shift that has happened in American warfare has been a part of my reporting for so long. But this project, this specific project that grew out of watching the air war against ISIS unfold. And seeing these numbers that our own government was telling the public and Congress and everyone else around the world, they just weren't stacking up. And I think at that point in time, it's, you know, I think early 2016, I had just recently finished an investigation in Afghanistan that had looked at U.S. claims about education efforts there where I did a ground sample of schools that the U.S. claimed to have funded in the country. And I was looking at these numbers about casualties from The Pentagon, which had said, you know, we have, I think, at the time they had admitted 8 civilian deaths. And it just, they couldn't be true. And I wanted to know, can I systematically study them? And I spent two years working on that ground sample from a rock that I think, you know, we discussed the last time I was talking to long form, but I think the sort of challenge I kept encountering and I think every reporter in a post 9 11 environment has encountered is what do you do when you go on the ground and you report something out there and you bring it back to the military? And they say, well, we reject this. We have classified information that you don't. We struck X target. We can't tell you the details of it. What do you do then? And so the basis for this most recent project for me has been, what do I do then? How do I contest or get access to what they claim as classified and what they're using as a basis to reject those findings from the ground? So let's talk about this idea of what's classified and what's not. When something is classified, is that classified forever, do you get any kind of indication of when it might become unclassified? And how does foia play into all of this? And can you foia things that are classified? You know, we've seen national security invoked as a reason for refusing to give people information about the rationale for why we fight wars the basis on which we take military action. This has happened again and again. And it usually would take forever for most of the documents that I ultimately obtained to be declassified. And by forever, some of them state 20 years from date of this document, some of them say even longer, but that can always be reevaluated. And extended. And to use the freedom of information act under ordinary means, if you submit a request to The Pentagon or to U.S. central command for these records, you'll be put in a queue and most of the time you will not get a response for 7 years because they're working their way through all of the requests they have. So the way that you need to go about it is you have to ask for expedited processing. And that was something I was very aware of. And back in 2016, when I filed a foia request the first one, you know, for a single incident, you know, I opened up The Pentagon's guidelines for its foia process. And saw what they required for expedited processing. And there are the traditional arguments. They expect you to show that there is public interest and that there is that this would shed light on federal government activity. So the kind of traditional things people ask for, but I sense there was something else in there as well. They said, potential for basically imminent harm. This idea that someone might be at risk of danger or their physical safety was under threat. And that disclosing those records to you on an expedited basis to be able to demonstrate that that would affect that would be helpful. So I saw that and I kind of put two and two together. I was looking at the time for the documents in a case involving a man named Boston razzo, who was targeted and his house was targeted in an air strike. They believed it was nicest headquarters. And they wound up killing his wife, his daughter, his brother, and his nephew. And through my reporting, I was able to confirm that they had conducted an assessment into that incident. I knew that that document existed and I wanted to get my hands on it..

"Well, I mean, I wonder to what degree that's on your radar. I mean, you are writing about these systemic injustices and I know impact is a loaded word, but I do wonder to what extent do you engage with the potential impact that these stories have? Oh yeah. In some ways, I feel kind of shameless about and very open to owning the fact that I do write because I want to be part of a collective conversation about change. And I think that's one thing that's probably changed since the last time you and I talked quite some time ago. I feel like the profession is changing to make more space for those of us who write because we believe that the world is full of a lot of pain and hurt as a result of choices being made by. But each of us and by systems and so I do feel like I'm happy to say and own the fact that I am drawn to stories that are about in a world of many intractable social problems. How can we start identifying the space where actual policy change could help or where organizing seems to be making some headway or where things are getting stuck and that way is not being made. And I feel like I do think pretty consciously about how could a story contribute to our understanding of that. And it's never going to be, I don't think it's ever going to be like, oh, this one story broke something open and the policies are now totally different, but I think it's we're part of a journalistic ecosystem where hopefully that's happening, like sometimes local news institutions work really, really hard to crack open their one piece of it and then there's larger national stories that keep driving that forward on the federal front and there's ways that all of these things operate in conversation with each other. So I think I've also taken maybe some of the heuristic like the ego part out that I think my measure used to be a complete, okay, I spent a year on this to change happen and it's like, that's such a preposterously wrong and ego driven way of thinking about social change. And so yeah, I'm hopefully evolving in terms of when I get really hopeless about it. Just remembering that we're all kind of taking little tiny pieces of it over a period of a very long period of time. How connected do you stay to these stories? You're in change of your life and then on some love you move on to reporting the next one. But how connected do you stay to them? Yeah, I think part of what makes the work rewarding for me too is the relationships you build. And so I really, I've loved getting to know Bailey's Gonzalez, the work I mentioned to misses from Venezuela who continues to follow different storms. She just going from place to place and reckoning with whether she's going to stay in the industry. And I would be so lucky to get to keep following what happens with her. And I also think a lot of stories have grown out of those longitudinal relationships. Like I alluded at the beginning to how this story really had its roots in the reporting I did in Iraq and Afghanistan, but I didn't mention that. Some of that came directly through the person who's the protagonist of this story, soccer Sony. So we had spoken years ago in the Iraq Afghanistan context because he was doing some of the earliest work around the workers who were trafficked after Hurricane Katrina. And I briefly put this in the piece, but he had actually helped to bring what wound up being one of the largest human trafficking lawsuits in U.S. history where a bunch of Indian workers, I believe it was definitely more than a hundred possibly hundreds who were brought over recruited to do Gulf Coast rebuilding and they were totally lied to about what they were going to be doing. They were held in abysmal conditions in some cases like at gunpoint and ice was going to be called on the workers who protested. And so socket actually helped organize that community. And those were our very first conversations. That was years ago. That was years before this resilience force piece. So I guess I'd say to the reporters who are listening who have had pieces where it feels like it didn't work out, 'cause that happens to me all the time. I've had things where I poured my heart and soul into it for whatever reason. Things didn't coalesce. I had really wanted to do a long piece about that Indian trafficking case. And it just didn't happen. And so I kept in touch with Sony, and it was years later I saw, oh my God, he started this new organization specifically for workers rebuilding after climate crises and extreme weather. And then I said, okay, this is the moment. I'm going to make this piece happen. So, you know, that happens to all of us, I think, in different ways. So the answer is very connected. I hope so I try. I definitely try. Hey, Sarah, thank you so much for doing this. Yeah, this was a pleasure. It's really great to catch up and talk. Thanks for listening to long form.

"Hey there, it's max, we're back with the next interview in our series this week with this year's George Polk award winners and the Polk awards. I should say, they honor the best and most important journalism of the year, and there were very few pieces that I read in 2021. That stuck with me quite in the same way that the one we're talking about today did. It's by Sarah stillman of The New Yorker. And I first interviewed Sarah for long form way back in 2013. It's a little bit terrifying that we've been doing the show for that long, but Sarah since then has continued to do this absolutely groundbreaking. And I would argue unique brand of journalism that she does. She finds these human stories that are embedded in massive societal issues. Issues that are so big, they're hard to wrap your head around and she has this way of making those huge seemingly intractable problems feel personal. That's exactly what she did in the article we're talking about today. It's called the migrant workers who follow climate disasters and it's about this $1 billion industry that has emerged to clean up after fires and floods and hurricanes and tornadoes. And the way that this new huge industry exploits its workers. Sarah followed several of them for more than a year. And she also got some of the companies to go on the record with her in a way that felt quite rare. It's an incredible piece of journalism. It's meticulously reported. It's full of emotion. And it was just fascinating to talk to Sarah about how she pulled it off. So here's my conversation with Sarah stillman about her Polk award winning article for The New Yorker and stay tuned the rest of the week. We got a few more of these coming up. Hi Sarah. Hey max, good to see you. Good to see you too. Thanks so much for doing this and congratulations on your Polk award. Thank you. Congrats on everything. Pineapple has become. Well, yeah, you know. Making lots of podcasts, you are writing lots of articles, but we are here to talk about one of them, which is this piece you wrote about migrant workers who follow climate disasters. And that is a very short way to sum it up, but I wonder if you could give me a slightly expanded version of what the article was about and what you were trying to do with it. Absolutely. So, you know, the origin of this piece really goes back to literally my first New Yorker piece ever. Way back when and I guess it was 2000 ten or 11. I was reporting on human trafficking on U.S. Military bases in Iraq and Afghanistan. That may sound really random, but I'll break it down for you. So basically, I was over in Iraq and looking at the many, many logistics workers who have been recruited to do these really hard jobs on U.S. Military bases, and they were people coming from India Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka, to do the cleaning of the latrines and the cooking of the food for U.S. soldiers on U.S. spaces. And often they've been promised these total lies about these great jobs in Dubai where they'd be making tons of U.S. dollars and instead they were brought to a war zone. And when I went over there and started looking into the many layers of subcontracting involved in that trafficking, what I found is that some of the companies that were responsible for that interact in Afghanistan actually also saw an opportunity after Hurricane Katrina in the rebuilding of the Gulf Coast. And so companies like KBR were not only involved in subcontracting that defrauded workers to come work on U.S. Military bases, but they were also recruiting guest workers from India and other places to come work rebuilding places like New Orleans after the hurricane there. And so in that process, I got to know about this really fledgling industry of workers who were suddenly coming to the U.S. to help rebuild after hurricanes. And at that point they didn't really identify as storm recovery workers. And so part of what this piece was really trying to do is follow the emergence of this new industry of workers who might have once identified as construction workers who helped rebuild after a given storm in their local area, but then what happened is with climate change because extreme weather events became more and more and more common. These workers realized that they developed the specialized set of skills after Katrina and then they went on to the next storm after that in Baton Rouge and then they went on to the next storm after that in Texas after Hurricane Harvey and then they went on to hurricane Irma and herk and Michael and they realized there was this whole new line of work to become a kind of migrant worker doing recovery work after storms or after fires or after floods. And how did you go about embedding yourself in that world? Because part of what's so clear in the article which is true in the military base is one as well is.

"The George Polk journalism awards and today I spoke to Maria abi Habib. She is The New York Times bureau chief for Mexico Central America and the Caribbean. She won the award this year along with her colleague Francis robles and the time staff for a series of stories about the assassination of Haiti's president jovenel moise. Just to give you a little background for these stories more yeast was gunned down in his home in July of 2021 and the story about who might be behind it unfolded over many months, culminating in this very long story by Maria, in which she uncovered a huge amount of new information both on moise and on the murder, including the fact that he had compiled a list of suspected, high level drug traffickers, in Haiti, and was threatening to act on that list. She discovered connections to both the former president, whose name is Michelle martelly, and to a prominent businessman in Haiti named Charles saint Remy, who was allegedly on the list. It's just incredible reporting and she walked me through how she did it and also how she sort of thinks about and works on these kinds of stories in general. I spoke to her in Mexico City where she's based and here's Maria abi Habib. Maria, welcome to the long form podcast. Thank you for having me. It's.

"With the scene. Because suddenly I wasn't just standing in front of it talking about it, we were in it. Is that something that you can get better at being in a moment like that? I think I'm just working it out as I go along. But I do think that this is the big difference between network and cable. Because it's CNN, I was doing those live shots sometimes for 20 minutes on the streets of Kabul. And so when you are in that position, the whole thing changes, it's more about like, hey, we're on the streets of Kabul together. Let's explore. Let's see what we find. Let's see who we can talk to. And did you notice this? And did you notice that? And so the whole thing has a real informality to it that I think is actually really allows viewers to feel that they're closer to the experience of being there. And I feel like the more natural we are and the more real we are, I don't think that has to compromise the reporting. I think you can be a human being and be a reporter at the same time. I know that the answer to this question has to be yes. But I'm interested in the layers of it. I mean, how fearful are you in these moments? In your job is to go to the most dangerous places in the world. How scared are you? If you're not scared, you're stupid. Because fear is a really important emotion, evolutionarily, it tells us when we're in danger and when we need to get out. So you should feel scared. But you make sure that your rational mind is in the driver's seat, calling the shots and making the decisions. And so I want to make sure that the car is right there that it's pointing in the right direction that I have an exit that the gunshots are coming from over there, that the crazy person who is shooting, I am standing behind them. You know, you have a lot of things going on in your mind. To try to make sure that you are minimizing the risk that you're subjecting yourself to. But I also know like in the airport and Afghanistan, for example, there was a really scary day we had there with gunshots going off nonstop, these Taliban fighters, nearly cracked open my producer Brent swale's head, literally it was this close. And the next day it was like, should we go back to the airport because that was the obvious place to go back and we were just like, no. No, we did it yesterday. We gave people a really real sense of the chaos. But we're not just going to keep going back and exposing ourselves to that level of danger just to fill air. So it's all about calculated risk. Taking the risk when you need to and being smart about how you take them. And do you think that at some point how you calculate risk will change? Like, is there a time when doing this work will be less worth it than it is to you now? I think having kids already shifted that. I mean, there are certain risks I would have taken back in the day that I would not want to take any more. And I think also as you get older and a bit more experienced, you sort of know yourself a bit better. So for me, personally, I care about people. That's what drives me, that's what fascinates me. That's what I find to be the most compelling storytelling. I'm not the best person to send out embedded with troops into an empty village to watch some epic battle play out. There's people who are much, much better at that than I am. And it's a high risk and for me the reward isn't there because if there aren't people in the village, then it doesn't sort of speak to me as much. So I do think it's constantly shifting and evolving, but I can't imagine not doing this work anymore. That makes sense to me. It's like a constant conversation with yourself about what you can do and what you need to do. Yeah. Yeah. And it's always evolving. Before I let you go, I saw this quote from you. I think it was in a conversation with Terry gross on fresh air. And you said, we're so protected from those moments of just sheer survival. In our western lives. And that quote made so much sense to me because I feel very protected from those moments in my western life. And I wonder how you navigate that for yourself, how you bounce between these moments of sheer survival and then go back to London and have a coffee with your friend. Like, how do you bounce between those extremes? It's hard. It's really hard. It's probably the hardest part of this job. Because you start to feel a little bit like you don't belong anywhere and so I used to come back from war zones and feel completely disconnected from my life. Disconnected from my Friends from my family, I would look down on people about the conversations they were having about silly things. I would feel kind of numb and miserable and then I realized that if you want to be able to keep doing this work, you have to choose to embrace the privileges that you've been given and you have to choose joy and choose love and be kind to yourself.

"There, it's max. So you might remember around this time last year we did a 5 part series of interviews with winners of the prestigious George Polk journalism award, and I am very happy to say we're back. We're doing it again. Every day this week, Monday through Friday, we're going to air an interview with a different Polk award winner discussing the work that earned them the award. And I just want to say on a somewhat optimistic note, the competition this year was stiff. The Polk awards got a record number of submissions this year, and from a record number of outlets, which just feels to me like a real testament to the enduring value and power and importance of investigative journalism. So some of the people that you'll hear from this week are folks that you've heard on the show before. But some of them are brand new to the podcast, including this first guest, claris award. Clarissa is the chief foreign correspondent at CNN. And she won her Polk award for her real-time coverage last summer from Afghanistan as the Taliban came to power and U.S. forces withdrew. You might remember it was a deeply chaotic time, and we talked about how she makes sense of the chaos of a moment like that. We also talked about how she managed to interview Taliban leaders amidst all that chaos. And I also was just curious about how she balances doing this job, reporting from conflicts and war zones. She actually talked to me from Ukraine with her life at home with her family. So here's my conversation with clarissa ward and stay tuned for the rest of the week. We got more interviews with George Polk award winners coming your way. Clarissa,.

"This is a tough one because you are facing such a small bet. The question becomes if you spike an 8. Which is going to happen about one in 20 times, not all that often, going to the turn. Will you be able to manage gigantic pot? And the thing is when an 8 comes, even if Doug is sitting here with a hand like ace queen, will he put in $14,000. Maybe he will, maybe he won't, but this is a spot where there's certainly lots of sets and straights available, right? If an 8 comes. So I think you just want to fold because you're not going to be able to reasonably continue on any turn. And if your opponents do have bluffs, they're going to keep bluffing a lot at the time, which is then probably going to make you fold. Also in the spot, the pocket 8s are not a particularly great hand to have because you block a lot of the reasonable bluffs on Queen 7 5, which would be 9.886. Which are close to impossible to have now, because you have the 8 and the 8 in your hand. So I think this is just a fold. Isn't annoying spot because you are facing such a small bed, but facing a bet and a call. Someone is very likely to have you in pretty bad shape. He does call the hoker travelers coming along as well. All three players go into the turn. Parties. Oh, oh. Dog boats up. 5 on the target. It's not going to proceed here. What type of sizing will he come with? DQ says he has 3500 left, maybe the graphics are wrong. I will say DQ's play becomes better as he gets deeper and deeper sacked. As your deeper and deeper sack, you can certainly splash around a bit more with suited connected junky hands. But if you are playing very shallow stack, then you just can't do it. That's targeting a queen. Neither opponent has a queen here. This is a spot where Doug probably does want to just keep betting. You're going to find that if you check in the spot, people are just going to check behind with a lot of their non premium hands. And most people would check raise the flop or raise the flop of their premium hands. So Doug definitely wants to bet. And he wants to bet an amount that can just get full value from a queen, which is the hand that's most likely to call a turn plus river bat. So I think I'd go something like 2000 in this scenario, maybe even a little bit bigger, maybe like 2500, depending on the opponent's tendencies. I will say, they are playing in Texas. I know from watching a lot of streams that take place in Texas that people don't like to fold. And if your opponents don't like to fold, you probably just wanna size up a little bit bigger in general, just to get lots and lots and lots of money in the pot when you have the nuts. I know that may be very exploitable, but it is an exploitative play to take advantage of what the player pool likely does incorrectly. Now, I don't know what these particular players do. Incorrectly, but if you think your opponents will call whether any queen or maybe even any 7 or any hand like pocket jacks, whether or not you bet 2500 or 1800, you might as well just bet bigger to get full value. Now, if your opponents are going to figure out that 2500 is for value, and maybe your other bed sizes are bluffs, well, that's where that play becomes a big big problem. Doug's going about 1400. Small bat. Accused God. One more thing that's nice about using a bigger size that you just get to more reasonably make a big bet on the river, which is quite good when you have the nuts. Yeah, action on setting the two seat. 6 or 8 clubs homes, unlikely that Doug has a 5, you teach G pocket 8 is going to tough spot again because again, he blocks all the bluffs, right? So whenever you block the bluffs, especially when the turn is just a random 5, it does not bring any backdoor flush draws. I think it's annoying spot, which is probably just a fold. I do know from watching some Doug Polk YouTube videos that he enjoys a good bluff every now and then, but Doug usually picks the good strong GTO bluffs. So in this spot, I gotta presume he's gonna have either the gut shots or a hand like a random king high, maybe like king Jack of spades, something like that that decided to bet the flop, although maybe that hand doesn't bet the flop and be like, king, king ten of spades, king 9 states, something like that. So in the spot, I think you really don't want to block the gut shots 'cause I was the most likely hands to be bluffing. So I think this is just a fold. Is that annoying spot is probably just a fold because that's not going for value in the spot with a 7. And it's probably betting for value, something like a good queen and better and against that, you're an awful shape. And against the bluffs which you're in fine shape again, so you're gonna have a tough time calling a riverbed. So I think you've just got to let it go. There are a lot of spots that come up like this where you're out of position with a hand that if this was an all in bet, you very easily call, but when there's a lot of money you have to act, you're going to drastically under realize your equity. And when that is the case, you just have to fold. Perhaps fearful of a queen said, I don't see him coming along. But never mind. A non believer makes the call. Some people are non believers believe in this two pair 8s and 5s. That's not good. It needs a miracle one outer here on the river will it come? It will not. It's a poker traveler is going to be stuck with a bluff catcher against Doug's big bet on the river here. Imagine here that Doug's targeting thinks that he has a queen. Perhaps a hand like tens 9s, 8s, this is a spot where you have to ask, what is your opponent's tendencies? I have no clue what poker trimer travelers tendencies are in general. He's a bit of a calling station. For large bets, I love an all in. If he will fold to large bets, as a lot of people in live poker will do, then maybe a medium bet is fine, perhaps hoping to induce a check raise even from whatever nonsense poker traveler may have, that said, in this spot, I think poker traveler is pretty clearly going to have a hand like a queen or Jax tens 9s, 8s, something like that. Probably a queen or a hand like jacks or tens primarily though. And if that's the case, I think you can go for a pretty big bet when a lot of draws miss. And Doug Polk certainly has the reputation of being someone who is willing to get in there and battle hard, so that allows him to go for these over best way more than someone who is known to be a weak type passive player because if you're known to be weak tight and passive and you're trying to put all your money in the pot, you probably just have the nuts. But if you will bluff logically and reasonably, as I'm sure Doug will do, then you definitely want to be going for a big bet size in the scenario with your effective nut hands. Doug gives us some thought. We're going to fast forward a bit. Doug does go for the all in over bet here. All in over bad. Now, should poker traveler call. Polyps slow down slow down YouTube. I realize. But you can see Doug's hand, duck has the nuts. But should poker traveler actually find the column this spot against someone like Doug Polk, who is definitely capable of running a bluff. Take a second to think about it. If you feel like quizzing yourself again, pause the video and write in the comment section below if poker traveler should call with these pocket 8s. I'll go ahead and tell you. The answer is no. Why? Because of the bluffs that make sense for Doug, they were 9 8, which you block, which means he's more likely to not have that. 8 6, which you block, which means he's more like a not have that. Or maybe something like 6 four suited, which just made it straight on the river. So given all of those hands, either made the knots or not likely, pocket 8s is actually an especially awful hand to call with. Now, if poker traveler in this pot had a queen, or maybe even a hand like pocket jacks, then I would certainly not mind a call. Jet pocket jacks would be loose call, but it's way more reasonable than a hand like pocket 8s, because pocket 8s makes it more difficult for Doug to have a bluff whereas pocket jacks does not. So this is just a trivially easy fold at this point, unless you can look and tell your opponent's bluffing. So let's make a read. Let's look at dog, is he bluffing? It's.

"Today we have an interesting hand from the lodge, which is a poker room in Texas that was recently bought by Doug Polk, Andrew nini, and brado and today we have a hand featuring Doug Polk. I hear he has a YouTube channel, check it out. And in this hand, he goes for a two X pot river bat all in. Was it for bluff or as a value? What do you think? Let's take a look. Now it's a little embarrassing. Little embarrassing, that's not nice. All right, here we have 5, ten, 25, 50, 100, no limit, Texas hold 'em, we are playing with all sorts of different stack steps. We have a limp. Under the gun. We have a button straddle. All sorts of nonsense is happening. Let's get to it. A little embarrassing. All right, we have DQ calling under the gun plus three playing 2700 deep with the 6 three of clubs. Probably not a good strategy, 6 three clubs is not a very good hand when you're playing 27 big blinds deep. But such is life, that's what he does. We've seen so Stranger Things. If Doug stays at the bottom of the V pip list like he has been the last couple of times we saw that could be invited back. He'll be invited back, but Shane. Don't worry, chat. I'm going to give him plenty of needling. Being bottom of the VP plus voluntarily put dollars in the pot, meaning you're playing like a super nit, little embarrassing. And we're going to make a little change. No more folding ace 9 off preflop. Dan with the 20 dollar super chat sets with the launch starts having wait times and lines around the building to original chats fill members get seating priority. They can see you at mayhem, Dan can't wait to see you again. What's interesting was on that big hand that Doug one versus Brad, he didn't even really want to play. All right, let's take a look at the spot. All right, we have poker traveler playing $14,000 deep which is about a 140 big blinds raising it up from the big blind, which is the $50 bet, I think. No, the $10 bat, I don't know. The blinds are all over the place. Doesn't really make a difference. Pocket 8s in the scenario definitely wants to raise, it can very confidently get it all in against DQ, who I am told plays, loose splashy, aggressive poker. So I like this play a lot. Now, Doug opts to call in position against poker traveler with the 7 5 of spades, which is certainly splashy, but is probably acceptable if you have a tight image. Also, if you think that you're going to be able to navigate the spot very well in position against the deeper sac poker traveler. The problem where the issue is that perhaps it's going to get back to the DQ and then DQ is going to shove, poker traveler is going to call a re raise and then you have to fold. So as you think DQ is going to be more inclined to shove, you should be way less inclined to splash around with stuff like 7 5 student. There's so much action in front of them, a lot of limbers, just calling flat and debate. It's like, okay. You got to customer a little crying call. And then boom, flops, top two. And stacks Brad. Good. Sure. Didn't end so innocently. Looking for suckers, yeah? All right, DQ ops do just call the 6 three 8 clubs. Again, very loose very splashy. I'm gonna be honest with you guys. I do know my hand. Doug with bottom two. Got her for DQ. Poker traveler with those 8s. Poker traveler ops to check from the big blind as he should on this queen high board. This is the spot where you definitely want to be checking a large chunk at the time because Doug's range should contain a lot of good strong big cards. Also small and middle pairs, all of which connect pretty well with this. And, you know, pocket 8s may be able to reasonably check call. Now if Doug bets and DQ shops, then poker traveler can easily fold out the pocket ace. So I like checking in this scenario. You could also make a small bet. I think that's justifiable. Either place seems reasonable. Doug should definitely bet here if both for value and protection in multi way possible usually want to go for a relatively small bet on somewhat uncoordinated boards like this. Boss 2000 bucks, let's do what Doug does. This is the same. This is over double, I think the biggest one. Already. That's going to go for a small size. It looks like about a quarter of the pot. 5 50 into 2000. It's really small. A lot of people in this scenario think that they want to bet big to try to price out the draws and to get full value, but in reality and multi way pots, you don't want to be betting all that often to begin with because someone's likely to have something. And for that reason, you very often do want to go for a small size when you do opt to bet on uncoordinated boards. This board actually is pretty uncoordinated. You're not so worried about the random 6 three clubs because usually that's not in the pot. That said, even if 6 three of clubs is in the pot, if you bet 5 50 and they call, they're not getting adequate odds to draw to their strength. So this is a fine spot to go for a small bet. If the border is more coordinated, you probably want to go for a bit of a bigger size. 6 three 8 clubs, it's annoying spot, given the shallow stack size probably set to fold. DQ with a gutter in a backdoor flush draw. Peels. Back to the pocket 8s. What do you think pocket H should do in this scenario? Facing $550, playing pretty deep stack still. I want you to take a second. Pause the video and write in the comments section below what you would do with the pocket 8 on the flop after you check Doug bats and DQ calls. Would you just let it go? Would you call, would you raise it up? To $1100, or would you make it $2600? Pause the video and write what you would.

And you know, you know it's so messed up. I think I picked on in the first time I saw him. He tried to figure out he thought he was strong and in class. Because you were dancing like usher and he couldn't. No, no, no, no, no. He was like, that's like bad one. I was just like, I was trying to show off, but I can live. You know, I can do that. Okay, it was a way to competitive and wait. Yeah, I was just like, yeah. But my name is. Listen, you know what's the big job? You know what's the biggest problem lifting weights? They're heavy. Yeah. You gotta be careful. Don't hurt you, man. Yeah, for real. What gives you practice? Masturbating? No. Oh. A very strong forearms and shit. We get it. I didn't know for a whole year. No, you didn't masturbate for a whole year? I don't need to. I love that. Hey, listen man, it's bravery. We mark the calendar. I mean, listen, if you get, I mean, that takes a lot. I would probably mark it down too. I'd want to be proud of it. I didn't masturbate for a year. What's the anniversary? This was funny. You want me to? I mean, I don't want you to piss yourself on the show. I'm just gonna learn. I would, yeah, I'd probably, you know what? If you want a second, hold on. There you go. You're good. That's still running. Hey, can you hear us out there? There you go. Hold that for once. I'll be ready. Yeah, probably, but it's on a delay. Is everyone seeing this out there while job? Say something. Yeah, I don't got to say nothing. Huh? Oh man, you know what? Shout out. If you have to see this out there, man. Shout out to my producer Rhett. She's out there. She's gonna be on the show later, right? My producer Rhett. My producer read. Producer right? No, get the producer at, man. It's just the best. I mean, there's her in my other couple where they stone, man. She looked like I wanted to see her. I mean, she's great. We'll introduce you to Sammy in a minute. But you know what, this is what we have the opportunity here to continue to show spiral. So when you first started DJing independently, did you find it, this is your calling? Yeah. Just as did it feel right for you? Yeah. Yeah, I should have been doing it. Yeah. Yeah, I said, I shouldn't have been running from at all. Hold on a second. There you go. Sorry about that. I lost you on the sound. What were you saying? Nah, I'm just saying, I should have been did it. I should have been jumping on the timing table with my day to ask you to the first time. 'cause I've been getting lit. Okay, so every time he would DJ party, like for people, my age, like the sweet 16s and stuff, when I was young, I used to grab the mic, I used to hand him a burger, though. To grab the mic, put it in my pocket, and I used like EQ to likes and then I go out on a dance floor and I go back and then so you feel good like you're one of those that likes to hype up the crowd when you're DJ. Yes. Let me ask you in that regard. And being able to have that experience, what do you think it takes to be really good with DJ, you know? Is it just about the hype? Is there more to it? What do you think are the proper elements to focus on as a DJ? Well, I'm focused on is like getting different crowds and putting them together like safer and you got your EDM crowd. You got your hip hop crowd. Sure got you. Yeah, you know, Hispanic crowd. I don't know, I'm partying each one of them. Democrats and then I'm trying to bring them all together into one big crowd so I can put on a show. Well, that's kind of hard because you know, when you have a loyal loyal person to a genre, as it be EDM or Spanish, like, you know, for example, Miami, right? I don't know if you guys have ever been down in Miami. Have you guys been down there? A couple times. A couple times. Okay, so down in Miami, you know, we have, we have so many clubs. I feel like clubs are like a dime a dozen out there. And every club caters to whatever theme. Some like to mix it up throughout the night, you know, you do, but that's more like in the touristy district side. You know, more in your south beach side. You know, like if I'm gonna go to the beach or in this case, when would even nowadays, you might get a club that spends a little bit of everything. But you got some that are just straight Spanish Empire along with salsa. There's just some that are just straight cater to EDM. And you know and nothing, nothing different. You know what I mean? So sometimes it's hard to build a draw. To the crowd, you know what I mean? Like, hey, you know, I want to have this crowd of every little genre in here. It's hard to do. I'm guessing maybe here in Polk county, you might guys have a better opportunity. I'm assuming, right? No. Is it so then you guys had the same challenge? Words, it's a separate crowd. And you know what? I would figure so. I would figure so I don't think that you would hear too many of those crowds. But you prefer that. You prefer to have different crowds. Yes. Yes, 'cause I jumped from crowd to crowd the crowd. I did that in high school. So you don't have a favorite. You don't have a favorite where you like to play, hey, I like to play hip hop. Hip hop is my favorite. But I'm just saying, I don't judge. When it comes to music. Right, so for you, ideally, you'd like to be in a room where you could spend all these type of years. That's because you got to think about it. You got to think about it. If you can pull that out, that would be like dope. What's the best song? You know what? As Medford is a good time to do this. So it's our 5th season like we said at the top of the show, right? I want to kind of go with everybody and have their, I want to figure out what everybody's top 5 is. And I figured this is a proper time just to ask you, you don't have to answer this one proceed. But just you give me the top 5 songs, a DJ will always play in a party to get it going..
Biden Campaigns for Newsom in California
"Happy tuesday morning and tuesday morning. Of course means it's election day somewhere right. There's a primary election in cuyahoga county ohio. Today there's a special election for a state house seat in iowa. I see you polk county. Let's be honest. The biggest election of the day the one that will directly affect forty million people and perhaps indirectly affect far more. Is the recall election for california governor gavin. Newsom it's a remarkable moment in our nation's history this recalls about catching you while you're sleeping remember. This ballot is a two. the first question is a simple one. Do you think governor gavin. Newsom should be kicked out of his job and if a majority of voters say yes you go to question two which is who besides gavin newsom should take his place then as for. Who's replacing them. I have a thought the end of the day we could be looking at just a governor serving the rest of his term or perhaps one of the most bizarre replacement projects since arnold schwarzenegger was just an actor. Abc's political director. Rick kleinman following this with bated breath so rick know we talked about how california could be his own country. What are the chances that its leader. Gavin newsom actually loses his job today. We'll brightest prospects live a lot better than they did a couple of months ago there was sort of a scare that got shot into the political landscape across california and nationally when a couple of polls came out that suggested that gavin newsom would would have a hard time getting to fifty percent of people saying that he should stay. That's the magic number more than half half the vote for him to stay for him to keep his job. It's different for the replacement candidate but the polls stabilized significantly vocalized with all kinds of energy. That you have here tonight to vote no on this republican recall and i'll tell you democrats in california. They are thrilled with the turnout numbers. They've seen they've seen people showing up about equal to their their share of the population. Which means for a democrat california. You're in pretty good shape so he could take hours beyond tonight or even into the next day or even next week depending on how close it is for all these votes to be counted keeping might every californian got a mail in ballot but gavin. Newsom feels pretty good. And i think that's one reason you saw president biden and a lot of other big guns. Try to make the case for him. Down the stretch

"That's what i'm saying. Yeah like the aces are now weighted towards weaker aces. That are gonna really struggle to call triple barrels for stronger as that may feel obligated to. I still prefer blocking the seven combos. I don't know. I don't think i agree but you know other people can argue about that. Let's not let's been spending more time on the part of this. Fuck it all right. So polk fourteen thousand two hundred. Okay yeah he really big. Do you think that's cool. Do you think that's a good idea. I think it's pretty cool. Yeah i believe it's possible for him to do that with value. I really do i think is one of these guys who absolutely can have eight. Seven suited here are nine seven suited and really do this for value. Yes so as long as you can do it for value then. I think it's awesome because look at the hand that perky has if broke actually had eight seven. He's gonna he's probably gonna has to call with a king a queen right so i like it. Burke does feel like he has to call. He does call. Obviously it sucked to call the flop. This sucks more. Things are getting real. This is a big threat of a big bet on the river. Oh yeah really big that. It sucks but he's way ahead he is. That's good until until doug paulk. The is thirty nine thousand dollars. The river is the nine of heart. I mean come on. He back doors the full house he goes running at nine. Ace of spades seven of clubs seven of diamonds nine of clubs nine of hearts the poke with nine eight of spades somehow got nine full against burke's as king over the percentage on the flop there. I think it was like ninety two or something like that. Well he had he had a bunch of back doors to hit other backdoor that amounts to more than two percent when with gas redraws. Probably not right. Any ase kills it all or seven yay good point. Okay yeah you're probably right something like that cheese. That's a good run out. It's a good run out. Yeah okay well. Burkey can't bet. Obviously burgis never batting all right. So there's a couple of questions first. One is how much should poke that. Because burke's checks thirty nine the pot. We're just deeper. We just have a lot of money. There's a lot of those. Like poker is goofy spots. Where it's like before i was betting this hand because i wanted my opponent to fold and now the hand is better and i still have my opponent on the same range that had him on before but i want him to call. Yeah it's it's interesting. It is okay so the pot is. what'd you say. Sorry thirty thirty nine thirty nine and we have. Everyone's deep. deep deep. berkey was the effective stack with eighty seven k. To start okay. so yeah. so he's still got seventy five thousand or something like that seventy two thousand okay. I mean i think you should go really big okay really k. Something like that. Forty five more than pod like we just spent more than the pine got called. Let's do it again. We now if he's got pockets associate. He's got pockets seven soviet. We've got a huge hand. He often has the hand that he has. He made us feel trapped in the calling. Let's go for it man. we're doug poke. We are balanced in ways that most people are in berkey knows that he just has to call for certain parts of his range. Quick thought experiment hale. While i'm going where i'm going if you're poking you got fifty k. In berkey moves in for seventy two.

"The right play once we once we started this path i agree especially because we know where behind yes sounded. We can hope that well as we said pockets maybe pocket fours once in a while. But i imagine those hands are sometimes the flop anyway. Yeah sure but when they don't like the bet will fold them out right now. Sure although we're now beating them so that's well pocus not targeting those hands with this. Of course you start. He he wants to get some of those aces to do because he butts. Fourteen thousand. Two hundred and eleven k. Wow what do you think you like it. oh man. He's polarizing hard core. Yeah he saying he's basically saying. I've got i've got seven. Yeah i've i one hundred percent have a seven. Yeah that's what he's saying not already the case on the flop. He had nothing but he's not raising pocket nines on the flop. We don't think no we don't know that seems like a seven seven. I'm sorry i was thinking seven. Where the top card no. He's definitely not raising nines. There doesn't make any sense. Now you can just call no. He's now he's like one hundred percent has this isn't a east queen and cute. I mean he didn't on the flop. Anyway i agree. But i'm saying like we can compete million percent eliminate everything about a seven. We've mostly could anyway but when over bets the turn. Holy moly fold ten. Consider folding as ten burkey right. Yeah i mean it's pretty tough as burkey because combinatorial not that much on either side if you if the bluffs are constructed of what we talked about on the flop which six eight suited eight nine suited and maybe five six suited There's not that many of those especially now with the nine is come. Yeah so there's like ten of that and then the value also doesn't have very many combos maybe five seven six seven suited seven hundred seventy nine hundred right. Yeah so that's like a seven combos. It's not much and it's really got to be one of those types of hands right. Can you have unless he has some super weird air which it's possible but it's unlikely i'm thinking of a handy played against alec. Torelli live at the bike. Poke where he had like eight six off and like four bat pre triple barrel that an east qinghai board and try called down with pocket. Jacks all remember that hand-dug couldn't believe it you know shaking his head you know. I think the super weird air is a lot more likely when you take massively aggressive. Actions pre flop leading wants. You already have define rangers. And i think that's fair. I think it's really fair. I'm saying that we can't completely eliminate super weird air. Like he might make a play at you. Because he's doug paul can he just. Might i think mostly those are the rain. Just what you said..

Yeah i think that's true. It's because of how he plays right. Which is what ended up with us on issues. That's what that's what got us. Schiller correct house was talking about how he plays. Do you think that like poke is probably the most divisive personality and poker. Besides maybe phil hellmuth at this point. Okay i don't know if that's true but sure gee i don't know his burkey. The most divisive play poker community like people analyzing play divisively. He has a lot of fans. It's kind of like joe rogan of poker not to not quite personality wise or anything like that but like people kind of love it or hate it type of thing. I don't know it's weird. I mean he he certainly gets critiqued a lot. Not just by us right and he has fans but a lot of the fans are his clients right. Which i guess. We're still fair. Because they chose to be he has fans outside of. Of course. No when i say fans i'm sorry fans of the place he's making thinking they're good versus not non-client. I'm sure i'm sure you're right. So yeah anyway but also by the way his clients count they would. Of course they count because they don't have to be there more than fans they're paying they're actually your believers you know. I don't want to go down this path to too much. I always feel like just yeah. He's pretty divisive. I guess is what there may be. There may be other people who are even more but it's hard to think of somebody. Yeah i mean maybe phil hellmuth is also very visit. Yeah as far as his players concert phil probably is even more so but because but it all is a big package for him right right like he's partially because he's won so many bracelets and he talks about himself greatest and his personality is what he is all that goes together to make him even more so right right so anyway just thought is cool to examine what we're dealing with here with these two guys because two of the big names in poker. Sure you don't think so. I mean the average person's never heard either one of these guys two of the biggest names that the two biggest names right.
