"Prichard on twitter. Is there anything else we can help you promote today. Mr richard juiciest mainly mainly for twitter and facebook and facebook. And there's not enough. Richard mckeon and by the way i wanted to be invited to the conrad's your growth. Then okay. we'll get done. I'll tell you what it is. Thank you so much. Mr pitching for joining the show today. Thank you sir. Well and the rest they say is history now. The next step of course would be somewhere. Along the way. I would befriend bruce prichard and before you know he would be on a plane headed this way and we would produce a bunch of Mortgage commercials and video projects together and work on some landing pages and he slowly but surely learned a little bit more about my business. And as i learned a little bit more about his business. I couldn't help one day but say hey man this is a podcast and here we are. I don't think anybody would have ever predicted that we would start with what you just heard. And wind up with all the silliness. That is something wrestle but it was fun to look back to the very beginning. I gotta tell you. There is no end in sight. Know sometimes people doubt that especially when we have a show delay like today but we have similar situation last week. You know life thrown us all a lot of curve balls with cove nineteen. Wwe trying to roll with the punches. As much as they can and sometimes the hits and sometimes it doesn't as far as recording schedule and this was one of those where it didn't but we're still working hard to get to these shows every single week. Vengeance oh five dropped this past weekend and i'm positive that slammed bursary 2017 is coming your way very very soon. We appreciate your patience. Hope you guys are digging. What we're doing and i want to mention. We've got big plans for you throughout the rest of the summer of in all of a sudden getting blown up with requests just to make sure we're still going to do summer slam o five. Which is one of our.

"And this was authorilex dealer and and he was given it to me at cost and i had to battle with us all this one online and it was cheaper. Then get the one online if you like that one better than get that one. I've got this one brand new has got warranties got papers got brand new boxes all brand new. It's it's what it is. It is at cost due to a lifelong friendship with with my buddy and Using a a lifelong relationship you have to the company solid and then probably wound up looking like an asshole correctomundo You know. I'm watching her. Nobody listening here's what model rolex did you guys give him. I don't even remember it was a it was a stainless steel where he playing wasn't mariner. Oh no it was just Probably is yes okay. Well let's let's watch super nice gesture. I just felt like giving her angle used rolex. It's like a fucking Dixie carter or here. This is what we're gonna finish on. I found it interesting that I don't know what you want to talk about what this lawsuit or don't wanna talk about this lawsuit but in the middle of the world coming down crashing around or in october with the lawsuit from american express and then from the production company and then the state tax lien and everybody just kind of jumping in there now. Multiple lawsuits the same week and then thinks seemingly coming to ahead with billy corgan and then of course we all know the billy corgan lawsuit. There's just lots of back and forth and craziness. Are we going to be able to make the next pay per view or we. Our next set of tapings is the show cancelled. All around. Dixie in the middle of all this since auto tweet about her action figure and i was blown away about this and since you a screen shot like look this yet because the timing of it just seemed ridiculous to me and you said hey if you only knew and i even saw a response from eric bischoff trader said. All of you only knew i know. Bischoff has lawsuit with cnn. So we're not going to talk about that but it makes me think. Hey this is worth talking about It's the dixie. Carter action figure and on october twenty first right in the middle of the shit storm she tweets out. Hashtag flashback friday to in my action. Figure i came out. It went personalized at shop. Tna now and one of the very first responses was To me that said is this a hashtag rib It's not a rib. You were there when this action figure. I came out. I want you to kind of talk about the funny story that we don't know about this action. Figure that bischoff alluded to and then i want you to just assess what the fuck is going through her. Mind to be to lack the level of self awareness. Where in the middle of your entire company you know being in doubt and in question all the talents wondering to have a job. I don't have a job all these livelihoods are on the line. And you're pushing your fucking action figure on twitter at all up though doesn't it. I mean doesn't that explain a lot. I've only met her in passing. I met her at a ufc in the afc. I read nashville. She was there she was super nice inhospitable once the initial again. Same thing very pleasant. Everybody says that though. She's a nice lady. She's a sweet lady this seems like narcissism that would even make vince mcmahon blush on your fucking companies going out of business. And you're you're tweeting about your goddamn x. Figure little scary when that action figure. I came out. She had spots that she wanted on. Tv where's dixie. You take a picture of of the dixie. Carter action figure wherever it is and it would be plugged on twitter and on absolutely silly about it was absolutely ridiculous but We we did a retreat about this time. The word dixie campaign was going on and we lo and behold somebody from nashville so it could not have been meet. Had a dixie carter figure and while we were in cave creek. We went ahead and shot several Several several wears dixie locations with the dixie action figure and after a few beers thirty or ninety. We started sending those pictures back to dixie. And she wasn't all that happy. But we had dixie right. They're drinking with us. We had we had the beer bottle. And right there at The ottawa cafe and cape pre-care zona. One group the single greatest biker bar. You'll ever experience if you ever go to cave creek goto the hideaway cafe. Greg blazed but So yeah we had dixie all over cape creek. And she didn't seem to find the humor in it. So what read in. What did you guys have. The dixie doll doing in cave creek might have done little pole. Dancing might have had some bearman. Handsome pizza Pouring sugar out to align no. We didn't do that. That would be crass dance on a poll much classier well thought so but yeah it was. It was just silly stuff like that. But you you're right and it's but again that just kind of sums up why they're in the shape they're in tell me of another instance you can think of this to me is just. I know i've talked about it. You know.

"In. That was all it was one guy in a pay per view that we had out in phoenix and as we got closer to cannon became the question of what the hell are we gonna do. What what is the hall of fame induction. They were selling tickets to an event to a hall of fame inducting sting but god forbid i asked the question. Okay what is that said curiosity. What what is this. We are selling tickets to and the answer is well. It'll be a nice presentation and dinner and we'll inducting into the hall of fame okay. What exactly does that entail. And the only thing that had been thought out at that point was essentially that we would all get together and give staying watch. And everybody's happy people are gonna pay to eat dinner and have Dried chicken from the marriott. And watch dixie gibbs thing watch so try to get together with folks and tried to come up with some kind of a presentation and try to do something special for staying who is deserving of a hall of fame whether it be tna or wwe or wcw. Whatever he is a hall of famer is career is worthy of that so is trying to lay out a presentation. Who's going to induct him. Who who can we have from his past. Who can we have from his career. And then we have hulk hulk and that's good but since you only have one guy what is your show to the audience that is paying money to come and sit down and see this thing. So we wanted to have more people involved other than hulk in dixie sugata. Aj of all and then the suggestion was made. What about lex luger. Because lex luger was an integral part of stings history. They were good friends and thought it would be nice to have lex there. And she was fine with that but where it became. Tricky was when i said well much. Can we pay lex. And she was little dumbfounded at the suggestion that we might have to pay him anything which. I was a little dumbfounded that she was dumbfounded. Because i'm sitting there thinking here's a guy who's sitting home not doing anything. I don't know that he was hard but he was. Maybe a native money could use the money. And i didn't insult him and say. Hey you wanna come out and eat some really shitty chicken at the marriott name ducky buddy into the hall of fame. we'll pay. We'll pay your airline ticket. But you're going to have to room with bob ryder You know. I just didn't feel that was the way to approach this thing Finally got him a payday and we agreed to pay him something but the interesting thing had a little show pay him something which implies she wound up paying him you had kinda beat her up about to get him a little more. Yes and so we were trying to lay this whole thing out number. I'm talking in generalities about we've got all the talent there and she's like the the question comes back to me before i don't want to catch off again i'm sorry to this lurid and ask for any money. I wanna clarify that. No he didn't. I didn't want to go to him and ask him to do this offering him more. Want somebody to hear this and think oh and was negotiating for more money. That's not absolutely not wanted to go and convince pays guys five grand to do the deal. I don't think that that's super cafe number. If you participate in the hall of fame you're going to check five grand. Thanks for playing I assume that the tna chac was a fraction of that. Whatever you guys gave luger but even getting that to that point was a struggle with dixie. Okay got i didn't want to cut you off. I just didn't want the board to say all lugar negotiated more money. Not sure and so going forward. I'm trying to lay out stuff. And the subject of talent comes up. And someone. And i don't even remember who ask so you asked me i. I really don't remember who asked but they said well do we take the we deduct from the talents pay for the hall of fame banquet. How should we do that. Oh my god the dinner the shady chicken and the sweet tea. Yes you know thinking to myself you've got the this. This is a rib. Well no because it's like twenty four dollars or twenty eight dollars ahead and you want talent to be there and eat for free so it was It was an uphill battle. And finally i went through the craziness of asking talent to show up if you'd like to go to the hall of fame which they should want to go to the hall of fame inducts thing be. They're not gonna ask you pay thirty dollars for shitty chicken and unsweetened and once we get through that and come up with a decision that hey we'll make it an added. A deal will sit the talent with fans in the audience and we'll have a talent per table but dixies come back to that was just ask which talent wanna come and we'll just use the that wanna be there. Some of them probably won't wanna come. Which was insulting to me and insulting to staying. And that's me saying it was insulting staying. Not him saying it I just thought it was shitty. But that's how they did it so laying out this little production and guess who is the only person that shows up on time actually early to go over the show that day ahead of the ceremony. Staying.

"In a meeting. And i said. Would you like for me to put feeders out and see if wwe would be interested in purchasing the company probably two thousand twelve and dixies comment back to me was well. Maybe we might wanna buy wwe. And that was the end of that conversation. I never brought up again So when you're saying they were always looking for investors. What you really mean is they. Were looking for suckers would give them their money to keep funding this fucking wet dream of a company that wasn't actually profitable but not willing to overturn any sort of management. That could actually turn it around and make a profit. Ding ding ding The rumors innuendo are that They got all the way down. Almost check riding time on the toby. Keith deal but he wanted new management and then if eleventh-hour dixie or her representatives say she has to stay in place as president and remaining on air character and that ultimately was the dealbreaker. Is that the same rumor window. You heard it is okay. The lockdown pay per views in eleven and twelve or all cage matches a lot of hardcore wrestling. vance think. Assist the fucking dumbest thing ever. You're supposed to based on my. We've all as fans tall. You build to a cage match and you you have a match that needs a cage You don't have a card or a pay per view but needs cage matches or however that analogy goes. I'm not feeling well. I'm not myself. I catch me up. What did you think as long as an old timer as you said referred to yourself in wrestling for two entire cards. Be filled with cates. Mattis it for all the reasons you just said cage match should be special and should be build in. there should be meaning behind it in one. You know you should build the see it if you have entire car for the cage matches after the second one. There's nothing left to do some special anymore. I thought it was stupid as ideas and finally we got him to.

"So fuck it. You mentioned a few times. Mac conway tell everybody who that is way. Does matt conway was a writer with vince. Russo and matt was a writer will always there. I enjoyed working with matt and creative kid. He started he was a disciple of andy barton. Who was andy was vice. President in charge of the men operations and things like that and dixie took a liking to matt. And when i got there. It was matt and vince russo. The right and the tv when russo left a kept matt on and he was creative guy always had good ideas and busted his ass to get the brogden the six hundred ring who liked to who hated it. What did you think about it. Dixie liked it. Jeff liked it. I think they were the only ones for the most part. It wasn't there when i got there. We had the traditional foresighted ring by the time. I got there but the feedback. That i got from the talent because there would be times. Dixie would come back gash. Can we go back to the six sided ring and be different than wwe. I would get feedback from talent and most of them if they had their choice preferred the four sided ring because the six sided ring of it. It was an unforgiving ring. Not a bump friendly ring a lot. More steel underneath. Yes in. it just didn't have as much give so the guy's preferred the four sided ring. And i had no. I had no desire to bring the six sided monstrosity back. Toby keith. what's real and what's rumor. Don't know i wasn't there. I mean.

"Why why do you wanna look at an old fart like me. And she felt it was real. Eric made a push for talk me into it and i decided okay. I'll do it and so it was may flare and also we. I knew what the other two judges were going to vote. And i would essentially determine the order. Let jeremy barash now the order to ask which judge it what time and then i would usually i. I would have the deciding. Vote how. I wanted to play out whether it was me doing it. Or one of them. with alex silva came and the vote was no but right before the third and final. Vote We gave you guys an opportunity to cut a promo to possibly swayed. The last judge's decision will flare had already voted player voted. No he was the first one. Al snow voted. Yes so i'm the deciding vote. Alex silva cuts promo flare. Grabs the microphones. As i change my mind i vote. Yes and the kids in he's hired and we're on live. Tv and it was crazy because the kid didn't have a visa good work in the states. We'd had him on temporary. You know one or two off deal appearances to be able to do the gut check thing. But he didn't have a visa now. We had to start working on visa. Didn't work out. He wasn't that good and never should have got the contract in the first place but gut check was simply a vehicle to get new talent exposed. Bring some new fresh talent in in a different way to introduce them and the thing. Most people talk about contest that number two. Which is when joey ryan in may of two thousand twelve. I had a match with austin aries. They take to vote and this time task has replaced ric flair. It's a no from bruce. Prichard ask for mouse snow and it's a no from tasr What happened from there was a work. What was the shoot and wins it. Become a worksheet if it did. That's one of those deals where that end. Okay thank you where we knew what we're going to do and i said no alison. Yes funny how that worked because we really usually did disagree it was time for. Joey cut his promo. Joey cut a great bromo on me and on task tass being the pro that he is he's stuck to the script he didn't go off script and he said no but tasr was pissed because the kid cut hell of a personal promo on me and on task. Well is this is taking place and we get out of the ring going to go back. And they've got a cameron Enjoy face and i tell them. Listen this something. Oh my god. This guy's great ascend. Al snow in to go in there. Grab him and throw him out. Make sure that the camera you know still on. Nobody knows i mean everybody. Everybody assumes it's work but then it turned into shoot but it truly was a shoe and joey shot himself into a work. I guess you could say. But joey was working as well. I mean he was just cutting promos it himself over which i told him to do so. Al gets joey outside. I said bring him over to my trailer. We met in between the trailers. And eric comes running over said man. That was great. Encourage joey to Continue his tirade us. Amanda once you leave here. But i want you to get on youtube and want to get on twitter and i want you to lambast the shit out of us. We don't know what the hell were doing. Chicken shit operation blah blah blah and we signed in we had a contract drawn up for him right then senator in the next couple of days and told tasr. Hey here's the deal task. Thought we worked in which we hadn't it was just joey's promo and it was a great one and i said young joe. He's going to do this and he's going to cut promos on us and talk about what pieces of shit.

Dixie carter get pissed and i mean pissed and go off on. Someone was at bill banks in a in a meeting. I also we can tell the story Goddamn i'm trying to forget. I'm trying to remember who the hell the girl was. it was. It was one of the knockouts and bill was making fun of the way she looked. And dixie just and he was doing it all under his breath making who you know snide remarks and laughing to himself and just being a little bit in. Dixie went off on him. Let's say just stop with your with your remarks. You don't have a clue and i'm sick of your smart ass comments and you don't contribute anything positively to any of these meetings. All you do is knock everybody that type of shit. Wow yeah in for dixie. That was not did it. Sounds like maybe the only i mean. That might be the only store i've ever heard about. Dixie yeah i. it's a one of ones. I really remember her going off on someone and she did it in public me. She did a big meeting. Well i I did not expect that with our buildings conversation today from from my first from my first day on the job it was. Can we get someone to overhaul the website until the very last day they'll laugh was you know god. We need someone to do the website everyone they brought in and talk to. Of course i guess. They didn't like because they had ideas. I don't know or they wanted to be paid one of damn senate ugly. Let's move along. Let's talk about something else that got moved along and that was the gut check. We somehow missed this on our first teen show and this was really really really popular with our twitter fans. I don't know how he missed. It both still covered three hours and managed to miss it gut check had a couple of different incarnations. But it really got off the ground when you were there And you guys turned it into a television segment and it's famous for in the very first one Alex silva was the contestant had a match against robbie e and then i threw it to vote with bruce prichard al snow and rick flair and supposedly. The rumors would lead you to believe that everybody knew what the answer is. We're going to be like you know these guys say yes and got say no but flair goes off script and changes his mind and says yes. It changes the whole outcome of the thing so the guy wasn't getting a contract but now because flare just went into business for himself now he is signed and he doesn't even have a work visa to work here. What's true what's false and what really happened. Well as far as gut check it was simply an idea to be able to expose some new talent and we were doing gut check on the road where we get guys and and people that wanted to audition for spot on the roster to come to the shows and workout with the agents and work out with some of the talent. We were looking for new segments for television show spike. Wanna something new dixie. wanna something new. We want something. New and american idol was hot and we thought well. What if we actually had live auditions on the show and we had people Guys come out. They rustle match. And then the next week we would critique that match and we would talk amongst ourselves we have three different judges that would then decide whether or not this guy will get a contract. Originally the three judges we're going to be ric flair earl hefner and i think also They had them talking over the match. I in an insert and it just didn't work we scrapped the idea. It didn't work and then ever make air. No it did not. it was taped. We taped it to try it out and do a dry run. See if there was something. There dixie. Really wanted me to be on air. I didn't want to be on air bush on air. I'm not comfortable being myself on. I know that's crazy. You're the show.

"Heard the rumors before. I i've definitely heard rumors before addressed it with bob when i first started there. What does that number sound like. The conversation sounds like hey man. I've heard these rumors about you. I've heard that You will sometimes ask is for favors for a push. You're not in a position to push anybody. He was the travel man and he wasn't inner a creative position to book and or push anybody anyway and he said he denied the rumors. He said that wasn't the case. I have to take his word. And i never found that to be an issue when i was there. So from my vantage point with bob aid was straight up and i didn't have any problem with in in regard to any not even anything close like that while i was there. What what do you think causes bob ryder to have a negative reputation online because it seems like there's a lot of a lot of folks who dislike him. Who haven't evan probably ever met him. Well sure i mean. There's a lot of people that hate me. That have never met me and okay. I know go ahead. You're gonna say well bro. Come on you know But it's the same thing is because of the position he was in he. He was in a position of perceived power right now. I guess he's in a position of power. I don't really know but a lot of times it's easy to pick on a guy you know you and i've talked about this before where when I'm gonna use your analogy. I'm gonna steal your shit now like when baghdad. Everything's the statue of saddam. Hussein is coming out in the background. bob ryder standing out in front. Saying nothing to see here folks. All that has been the position that bob writer has unfortunately befell with tna standing for his company. Just as you and i would His official title. I believe is director of talent bookings and travel. I don't know that for sure but he certainly has more power than just being a travel. Now But i wanted to hear that from you because there's a lot of people who believe that. The dude sleazeball But you have different story. You're of the mindset. That knows a pretty good pretty good hard-working dude. Yeah okay let's Let's talk about who i consider to be. Mr t. name self. Mr jeremy barasch Barasch has always been a guy who's People are cold on on barasch. What was your experience with. Barasch what did you hear before you got there. And what did you find what she were. Actually there on. Jeremy ashville stooge. Jeremy barasch was you know jeff jarrett's right hand guy and you know went and told everything that went on no matter what it was and and i'd heard not great things about jeremy barasch for i actually ever met him upon meeting him and having the opportunity to work with jeremy barasch. I found him to be an invaluable person for tna the hardest working man in that company. He did everything. He was an announcer. He did Helped out on the internet stop. He ran camera he produced. He just did if there was something that needed to be done. No questions asked. Jeremy morass should do it and do it well and it took a little while to to get to realize all of that because i thought well what the hell jeremy boris joan that and i realized that bore did it because no one else was doing it and it needed to be done. Jeremy also produced a lot of stuff on his own he would go out and make things happen in a hardworking guy proud to call him a friend and he's one of those people that will succeed no matter where he is no matter what he does because he's a hardworking guy. They think if the will ever runs off and tna. He would have an opportunity to work. With jeremy i think it's sad that the hasn't had that opportunity yet because he would be a hell of an asset to the wwe and at the same time he's such a self starter and he's such a go getter did they might wanna put the reins on them a little bit and i think that would stifle him someone. He's working with robert irvine. He's doing stuff with howard stern. He's always out there creating something for himself so i think he's doing all right where he is doing what he's doing. I wasn't suggesting that needs to leave. I just know he's a hard working dude and he loves the wrestling business. And if this thing ever go sideways. One day i'd like to think that he Well he he definitely would be an asset without a doubt all right. Let's talk about another guy who used to be an asset for tna. Mike today. I wanted to know from your perspective while mike today is no longer in. Tna what your experience was like working with him. And while we haven't seen him with wwe seems like a natural thing he was part of wcw and then tna and he's been around forever and now he's not involved with the major wrestling promotion and that seems a little weird to me. So what did you think of working with mike today. And why don't you think we're seeing much these days today a lot Personally and professionally. And i think today was a talented guy. Standup guy responsible. The i can't tell you why he's not there anymore. I just assumed that they wanted a younger different. Look and feel other than my but not to utilize my in a producer's role or a creative role. I think is kind of a miscarriage. Because he's great. Theories is one of those guys with great attention to detail Very well informed and responsible. It's it's like one of the good guys. Today's one of the good guys.

"Main high but true okay cruel but fair This is going to be the third time we have taped tna partake. We did the first one when it was fresh. I still think we're probably should've kept that one. But through some arm-wrestling. I lost that bet. And now we're doing it for the third time so that we're doing. We've done this this many times. Because we're a little scattered Because there's so many little loose ends so we're gonna try to play the hits and we're gonna hit the high spots it's going to be a little bit of a word association and we're just gonna hit on some of the hot topics and let's get into hot one right now. Lots of rumors. Innuendo we tease. We were gotta talk about it I got lots and lots of direct messages and text messages and private messages about this. Nobody wants to talk about it in public But on the message boards mayhem. It's there let's talk about sex bait be in tna and there's lots of rumors and innuendo kind of want a rapid fire some of this and just have you kinda set the record straight to be clear everything. I'm about to say as rumors. Innuendo i was there. I don't have any firsthand knowledge of anything. I'm not saying anything happened. I am simply espousing rumors. And innuendo to bruce so he can shit on it or verify it. We've done this forever. But i feel like when we're gonna talk about sex people get a little more sensitive so here we go Bob ryder is a name that has been floated around. Not have sex with bob ryder. Okay next name. Barbara has lots of rumors and innuendo. That would link bob rider with certain talent and some adult activities in the early days of tna whether it was the naturals or Chris harris or abyss or the young bucks. There's a variety of names that are linked there and i'm not saying anything happened at all. And then all of this is a complete and total bs but haters gonna hate rumors. Going to grow. Rumors are going to be rumors. What what did you see. What did you witness. What did you have firsthand knowledge of. What can you confirm it or not. Well i'll tell you what witness. And what i have firsthand knowledge Is that bob. Ryder worked tirelessly busted his ass for the company and did a great job at what he did. And you know. I heard the same rumors but when you look at it is the total picture and all will stayed in bob's room people room people able to share hotel rooms folks. It's a cost cutting measure and when guys are on the road and maybe they don't have the money to be buying a hotel room. they double up. You know mick foley. Those guys slept three four five to a room to save money over the years. And bob ryder. I always found about rider to be nothing but professional bus disase and was always very good to me so i never witnessed anything any of the stuff that you said. So premiere world view. This is all just rumors from my for my views on strictly rumors. Yes i had no idea. There's truth that you'd have to ask the other people involved in that when i just mentioned that to you. Was that the first time you've heard that before. No i've.

"A very special black friday addition of the show here and a lot of podcasts styles or taking the week off and they've got something in the can the main. We're typing something brand new. Despite what all the rumors. Innuendo our shows not in the can. I'm sick and we're still power and through roll tide man was vader the man they call vader. That was our topic last week. I got a lot of great feedback on this when bruce. What are people saying you about it. It's crazy because i just got a lot of positive feedback for the most part. I think that is due to the simple fact that the host of this show does research. That would rival. Well i can't say rand mcnally because that's the matt people isn't it encyclopedia britannica there. There's one for the books now. We have wikipedia and the internet back in the day. We had the encyclopedia britannica. But conrad does his homework and is extremely thorough and for the most part. That was a compliments that i got on it. And i'm very appreciative of that. And we we love it. We listened to all of it. And if there's any loose ends we leave. We try to address them. But i really didn't get any. I did have a couple of lucienne. I miss somehow. Unable to apologize. Vader came back in two thousand five very briefly for taboo tuesday. Two thousand five. Jonathan coachman was supposed to square off against stone. Cold steve austin and in his corner he put gold. Dust invader kind of have his back. That wasn't the best showing for vader. But he was there and then. I'm sure we'll talk about this. Another point austin gets wind that the creative would have coachman going over and suddenly. He's unavailable for that show So he becomes unavailable. Batista steps in batista has a match with coachman vader's involved and that's it for his swansong He did briefly do Appearance where he was taking on With the other. Deputy legends heath slater a few years ago but nothing really of substance. The only other thing that we missed buzz scott hall and this was something came up on a message board. A scott hall had asked about going japan when he was trying to renegotiate his wwf. Deal to try to see if those away he can make more money. He approached and sunset. Hey you know. What can i do for like incomes plateaued. Is there an opportunity for me to do something else and been assured in the no he was doing everything right and he countered with half. I'm doing everything right. How can i make more money. Various explanations back and forth and one of the things that he asked for. If you believe the rumors window was the scott wanted to work in japan and thought. Hey if i could get some time off here. That would free me up to go have some dates in japan and offset the income. The he felt lucky should be making but he was turned down that request. And the reason this topical now and here is that what happened in late. Ninety five or early ninety six at the exact same time that vader was working out a deal with the wwe that would include some trips to japan. So what say you bruce. You're there kind of walk us through. What the fundamental difference between estimator and no scott hall would be well because they were asking for two different things and scott hall was looking to be able to go to japan. And do you know three to five week. Tour is a couple of times a year and vader was looking to be able to go over and work with our approval. And when i say our approval we also were approving the opponents that was going to be in the ring with and they weren't going to be long weeklong to three week long tours. They were one offs and we had to approve. Everything scott was looking. Go over there and do Tour i and that was something that we wouldn't be able to approve his opponents every single night of the tour and the chance of him getting hurt at some point and not being able to perform for us on the backside with something that you didn't want to do but being able to approve. The opponents for vader indoor send a match did japan. It was a different situation. American stars have been rumored over the years to of made ten to twenty sometimes even an excess of that thousand dollars per week on those japanese tours. Does that number hold water with you. Top guys did without a doubt okay. before we move on anything you want to have like. I listened to mention the vader. Taboo tuesday thing any specific memories about reaching out to vegas and two thousand five for that. Was it always planning to be a one off was it. Let's see what he looks like and see what we can do from here and he showed up heavier any recollections as to why that didn't do more no it was strictly as one off. It was just kind of a special appearance a one time thing. special attraction type deal so there was no plans to use him beyond that and sometimes those things are you bring people in for a one off and they blow you away in a good way we may go back and say Let's bring him back and do something with them. Obviously that didn't happen with bater that time this is a housekeeping a complete show and nothing but housekeeping from our most downloaded show of all time. It really was our most downloaded show of all time and man we play. The hits antena was a hit for us. So we're going to go back to What brought us to the dan so to speak and i'm excited. Only they could have as many viewers as we did downloads and they probably wouldn't be doing.

How monkeys played an instrumental role in the development of polio vaccines

"In the nineteen forties. America was under a constant threat from polio. A disease that had a then unknown cause and devastating effects especially in children. It spread quickly through unclean water and unwashed hands leading to symptoms like nausea fatigue. Fever and a stiffening of the body summers especially saw surges infections particularly around swimming holes leading to post polio paralysis and in some cases death on average thirty five thousand people were disabled each year. According to the centers for disease control and prevention president franklin delano roosevelt was among the most notable people to get the condition putting a face to a still uncertain disease. A vaccine was desperately needed as scientists learned about the transmission process including the fact that anyone could be a carrier in the next few years rival scientists jonas and albert sabin worked with teams in their labs on two completely different vaccines. Sabin worked on an oral vaccine. While sulk created an injectable vaccine that using a kill version of polio in the book polio and american story. David m ocean ski writes about the urgency of work. During the time quote. I talk there was reason to hurry the year. Nineteen fifty two was the worst polio year. On record with more than fifty seven thousand cases nationwide the headlines screamed of plague season and polio time. Twenty one thousand victims suffered permanent paralysis and about three thousand died from the very beginning of the polio epidemic. Monkeys were considered to be essential for research before human trials could take place becoming the unsung heroes of the fight to defeat the disease was through animal research that scientists i discovered that there were three strains of the deadly disease. The monkeys were purchased at a high cost from india and the philippines and shipped to the united states. Many died in transit so the national foundation for infantile paralysis now known as the march of dimes began overseeing their import in nineteen forty nine. A foundation established a special facility known as ot farms and rural south carolina to process the monkeys arriving from abroad oak tree farms operated in the picnic colony a beaufort county in coastal south carolina. Originally called the prichard bill primate center. The forty acre or sixteen hectare tract of land along. The river was called by local newspapers. The ellis island for thousands of monkeys from india naturalist john. Hamlet had the job of finding a space for the primate center. That was both connected to deep water ports and airports but also remote enough for neighbors the area he chose closely approximated the natural habitats of the monkeys with its abundance of shady long leaf pines and a mild climate. The monkeys were originally brought into savannah. Georgia one of the region's biggest ports and taken by truck the thirty odd miles or fifty some kilometers to the farm. When air travel became more popular they were flown by a london and new york before travelling by train to the low country. Once they arrived at the farm veterinarians treated the two thousand or so recess and sign a mogus monkeys before clearing them for transport to research facilities around the country. The monkeys spent twenty one days. Getting acclimated and eating a special diet was scientists carefully monitoring their status many went to sell nukes facility in pittsburg and sabin in ann arbor where they were given vaccines to test the vaccine. Strength against the three strains of poliovirus a few locals were aware of the research that was going on at the farm. Despite rumors of people encountering the animals we were unable to discover any opposition to the research facility perhaps because it was not well known and also because opposition to using animals and testing was not very common at the time in the united states. The movement against animal testing didn't pick up steam until around nineteen eighty in any case. The farms purpose wasn't permanent. Once sox polio vaccine was deemed a success and released to the public in nineteen fifty-five the work of qatif arms was no longer necessary and the facility closed in nineteen fifty-nine saban's oral vaccine came into use in nineteen sixty one the foundation that had established the facility. Its attention to reducing premature births. The monkeys found new homes and labs across the country. According to a former employee named louise crawford things at the farm were left just as they were including the monkey cages. A caretaker kept the grass and plant life at bay. The lab was locked up ready for someone new to take on the important task of preparing monkeys for research but that day never came in nineteen eighty the land and its contents were sold to development group. The lab equipment was donated to a local school science department while a farmer claimed the former monkey cages for his own animals. Today acreage along. The river is mostly residential and privately owned thanks to south and saban's vaccines polio cases of plummeted from three hundred and fifty thousand nine. Nineteen eighty eight to just twenty two in two thousand seventeen

Brexit: What does proroguing parliament mean?

"Now the history of proroguing parliament goes all the way back to the fifteenth century. Essentially it's the act of suspending the parliament allowing the monarch to introduce a new session but the ancient practice is freshly controversial after Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson convinced the queen to Baroque parliament just weeks before what could be a cataclysmic explicit with the European Union this week a Scottish court ruled the move unlawful suggesting Mr Johnson lied to the Queen to get her to approve the move he he denies that for British parliamentary historians there are new pages being written as a European correspondent Bridget Brennan found out the lights have gone off waist minster at a time in the United Kingdom's history law authorized by Her Majesty's Commission to Declare Her Royal Center Apiece Week Black Rod ended the House of Commons to Perot AG- parliament to the cries of no for main pays wanted disdain the states this is pain one of the most dramatic wayside covered at Westminster and in the middle of breaks. Is that saying something if it were to be the case that the government had misled is let the Queen about the reasons for suspending parliament and the motives for right that would be a very serious matter indeed my view then being the moment for Mister Johnson awesome to resign. We've been going on in this parliament nine for longer than any time. Since the civil war we need a queen speech. Look the whole thing's a mess now for every moment. Parliament argument remains prorogued. The British government are breaking the law. He's the pot where I'd meet. I had no idea what it meant to Perot Parliament before these last few weeks. I've have come to meet someone who does have an in depth understanding of the procedure and the wine which it's been used over the centuries and always interested in politics and less so in in parliament. I don't think people in the tend to pay necessarily huge amounts of attention to the kind of every details of what happens in parliament but I I stayed academia for a while I was historian and then I ended up leaving academia. I wanted to be in a think tank came here. Toy of gene ended up working on parliament just just about the time that parliament became the big story in British politics yeah parliament's Bain days story this week because nope for what what's happening but for what's not happening coming because it's essentially a shutdown explained for us. We'll happened in what's been the reaction so Monday of this week. Parliament was paroled and that's basically a fancy term mm for saying that it's been temporarily suspended between the end of one session of parliament and the beginning of a new session of parliament and that's due to happen on the fourteenth of October Ebba but this is obviously been hugely controversial here. Perturbation is entirely routine. It happens at the end of every session of parliament so in itself. It's not controversial measure but the fact that parliament is being prayed for so long for five weeks which is very unusual in terms of ext link on the fact that this is happening at a time where a brexit headline is leaving has been hugely. He key controversial. This is an exciting week for Dr Alice Lee. She's a senior near researcher from the Institute for Government A- parliamentary GEIC and historian so we've seen people out in the streets would normally be keeping an eye on parliament but it seems sort of sparked real fury papal to say maybe we don't watch him curious every week. We really want the parliament to be. I've been at such a crucial time. I mean was to be expected that people were going to be really affronted by this. I think it was to some extent be expected there were rumors earlier this summer that parliament might be perused correct actually over the thirty first of October said the date on which Britain's going to leave the EU deal or no deal on that certainly sparked a lot of public anger now. That's not quite what's happened. Parliament will still have time between when it comes back on the thirty first of October. MP's have already pasta law that will make it essentially impossible. I leave on the thirty first with no deal unless they've agreed to it but I think it really has sparked quite a significant level of anger and it's put a really big focus actually onto what parliament does so we've seen that the viewing figures for live parliaments during the last couple of weeks of being absolutely eighty three fist. It's like the new box. Full can't get enough of series. One and took brexit went so good and Alor into series three and there's lots of twists and turns so what is the Queen's role in all of this because there have been some comments on that this week after a pretty significant decision from the Scottish court that's right the Scottish court obsession ruled that the probation happened no Monday was unlawful and essentially they found that the advice that the government gave to the Queen when they all step to Peru parliament they did nothing not advice was essentially accurate they th the reason that the government was giving our Gatien which is they wanted to have a queen's speech and invalid big new legislative agenda. They did not think that was the real reason and they wanted to try to limit parliament's role discreet nice government so the Queen is the person who provokes parliament ultimately but it's really important to remember that she only does that on the advice of her government and big convention invention for the Queen's role in all of these things is that the queen is always supposed to be kept out of politics because obviously she does not want to be put in a situation where she as potentially making political judgments but the idea that the the advice that might have been offered to the queen was in some way misleading is obviously a bad looking at raises a lot of significant questions. My government's vegetated program. We'll continue to long-term in recent history has definitely definitely been a couple of decades governments of being accused of using their power to provoke parliament for slightly political controversial purposes so back in nineteen ninety seven John Major when he was Minnesota. Keep roaring parliament just before it was actually about to be dissolved before an election anyway and that it was alleged by many to be so that he could delay the publication of a fairly damning report into a big scandal and then back in nineteen forty eight Clement Atlee the Labor Prime Minister he worked parliament in order to essentially circumvent lords opposition to a piece of legislation that he was trying to pass but certainly the length of this probation is something that we've not seen since at least nineteen forty-five prorogation was first introduced in the fifteenth century when a monarch could dismiss parliament they wished and to look at the longest spell ordered by King or Queen. You have to go back to sixteen twenty nine so the very very longest example is actually if you go back several hundred years when we sort of had the big showdown between parliament and the monarchy under Charles I Charles I essentially suspended parliament for very very long time and ultimately it was that big showdown that the English civil war but certainly in modern history. It's something that's been far far less. Controversial used Prichard Brennan that historical update from

"prichard" Discussed on Amazing Business Radio with Shep Hyken

"We're back on amazing business radio talk with skip Prichard skip before I get into any of these other nine mistakes with you talk about David and I pronounce the girl's name aria. I assume that's how you say it, but who are David an aria in the book. That's right. Well, David is a young man who is disheartened. He has a stressful life. He's thought that his dreams come true after getting his job. And he thought well, you know, I'm well on my way. And then all of a sudden he realizes he stuck in a queue life, isn't what he thought. He's having trouble meeting his bills and everything changes when this mysterious young woman enters his life. He runs into her in a park, these papers, go flying and the next thing, you know, he's on a journey to meet these teachers of this ancient book called the book of mistakes, the book flashes back hundreds of years to a character named aria aria is a young woman who was also on the parallel journey learning these mistakes, and they're their lives kind of intersect. It is decided that this ancient book called the book of stakes has been passed down from one generation to the next. From the most successful people. So the next most successful group of people and this book has been hit and its wisdom. If only you could get this book and learn the nine mistakes, you would have success much earlier in life instead of learning these mistakes throughout your life and only being able to realize what they are when it's too late to make a difference. You know, as I read this book, I saw out of myself going. Wow, I one of the reasons I think I started as an entrepreneur so young is I didn't wanna work under anybody shadow in like the number one mistake is working on on someone someone else's dream. And I had my own dream. I had my own set of of I guess guidelines that I create for myself. And by the way, they aside from my past being, you know, an entrepreneur from the time, I was twelve years old doing birthday party. Magic shows. I did go to work for my family's business. Now that wasn't. My dream. That was my Grandpa's dream my mom's dream and then one day like just not even five months out of college. They sold the company now, I'm not working under anybody's dream at that point. And I'm going if they if my own family business could do that to me I'm not going to go to work for someone else. And so I actually as I was reading and there were some other things throughout the book. I'm going. That's me. That's me. That's me. All right. Let's jump into hopefully, people are now intrigued by this David and aria character art, but let's jump into a couple more of these great mistakes. So give us another one of your favorites. Well, you touched on the first one working on someone else's dream. And it doesn't necessarily mean that you have to be an entrepreneur the that might be it. But what is your dream? And I m I alive in my purpose. M I doing.

nerdy things we have in common

"Hello time. and welcome to the covert podcast. Today we'll be talking about focusing on the things we have in common then wrestling podcast. I know you will love. Lastly, we'll take a look at a comic book that takes a dark twist on the biblical flood. So let's get started. From two thousand ten to twenty thirteen. I went to San Diego Comecon for those who no, I is the biggest con in America and maybe even in the world, I'm not exactly sure. However, it has an incredible amount of people that attend over one hundred and twenty five thousand people come to the con- and the all have the same passion for all things nerdy for one person. It might be the passion for superman for another. It might be an obsession with the twilight movies. Many of these people would sit for days in line to tend to panel for their favorite TV show or movie. The camaraderie was thick, and that's the case with most cons. We all have a commonality about what we nerd out about. Do I agree with all of them on social issues like abortion, no. Do I agree with them on political issues like Republican versus democrat? No, I agree with them on getting together and earning out about the lake. Marvel story arc, yeah, for some of them I do. So instead of name calling and insulting each other about the things we disagree on, why not focus on what we do agree on, find common ground and invest time in that, and you might be shocked at the other things you will find you do agree on. This allows both parties to listen to each other before the walls come up because now we're comfortable with each other on the things we have in common, and we like to nerd out about in today's era of polarization we seem to spend more time focusing on things we disagree on might just be one little thing instead of the things we have in common so much so that we won't even spend holidays like thanksgiving together because of those things we disagree about over at not your pastors podcast. They were talking about Christians being divisive about their political views so much so that members witness OSI it with with each other. Now you would think out of all the people Christians could unite regardless of political views. I'm sure I interact with many people who don't have the same worldview as I do not just at cons. I'm sure you do too. It doesn't matter because as long as we try to stay focused on the one or two things we have in common, whether it's fishing or baseball, or coin collecting football or podcasting, whatever it is focused on those things and spend time together doing those things that you have in common and the things you disagree on. Won't matter as much. Talk about the things you have in common. Tell stories about the things you have in common expound on what you have in common and nerd it up. Make your commonalities bigger than your differences. All the sudden you're differences. Don't seem so big compared to the size of the things that you have in common the impact you can have on other people. When you have a common focus can be huge. Use the nerdy things you like to unite instead of divide each other. For example. Maybe as a kid, you collected masters of the universe figures. Talk about that. Talk about the figures you had. Maybe the other person likes the same figures you had when you were a kid, maybe they had some of the same excess review did like castle gray scholar, snake mountain, or maybe they did different things to modify their figures that you might think are cool or maybe you did the modifications, whatever it is, talk about those things and tell about when I got this figure for Christmas, I was so excited or I got this figure at a clearance sale at stores and picked it up for only two dollars. Talk about those stories together. You'd be surprised at how well you can mash in connect with the person when you have that commonality so that when the differences come up, maybe it won't be so divisive because you'll be focusing on some of the things that you have in common with that person. Now, on a similar note, I read recently about people using dungeons and dragons to help kids with autism and social anxiety. People living with autism spectrum disorder, experienced challenges with communication. So social action, and sometimes they display restrictive and re repetitive behavior. Organizations like game to grow us tabletop role playing games to help teens, adolescence and emerging adults become more confident, creative and socially capable. The inherent benefits of tabletop role playing games are numerous and become even more beneficial. If intentionally facilitated by professional the games, encourage communication and team building in the fun safe environment. Now, Dr. Raphael Baca moslo I probably mispronounced the name. So I'm sorry in advance. The clinical director of take this uses DVD to help teens who are struggling to daft solid social skills. They learned those tough to teach aspects of socializing, like procreate communication, forming friendships, empathy, and other social nuances. As you can see unity in something like tabletop gaming, like dean D. Is being used to help those people in difficult places. In this situation, it helps others relax open up about what they're struggling with in the process. They inadvertently learn new skills on clued links to the game to grow organization and the take this group in the show notes. So please go to covert ner dot net to find out exactly what they're doing. You can see some of the pictures read about some of the gaming setups that they have and maybe participate in what they're doing in your local community. I found that and thought it was something that I needed to share because it's something taking something nerdy something we have in common and using it to help others. Now it's time to do some podcast recommending if you like wrestling in the eighties and nineties, like I did, you'll love the podcast something to wrestle with Bruce Prichard. It's hosted by Bruce pressured, also known as brother love in the WWF back in the late eighties, early nineties and superfan Conrad Thompson. As I mentioned, I was a big WWF fan from about eighty seven to ninety three. It's great podcasts because you can revisit those old storylines if that's the timeframe you liked. Now, I should preface Bruce Richard was involved from, I believe, eighty seven. So after wrestlemainia three and was off and on with WWF until I think two thousand three or two thousand four. So he covers a pretty big, broad span, broad span of time. Not just the time I'm talking about. So if you watched wrestling from the late eighties to early two, thousands, he has some firsthand accounts of what was going on. On behind the scenes and he's a fantastic storyteller. His impersonations of Vince McMahon are priceless. That's almost worth listening to the podcast alone to hear him to his impersonation of inst- McMahon, the popularity of this podcast skyrocketed so much. They have hundreds of thousands of downloads per episode. I highly recommend it for any race wrestling fan. They highlight wrestlers. They highlight some of the paper views the highlight some frames, so it's great. Just go check it out. They have a big archive that you can go back to. Sometimes they'll just fire up an old survivor series from say, nineteen Ninety-seven just watch it together and you can hear their commentary as they're watching the event. Lots of Riecke simply search in your podcast app for something to wrestle and you will find it and I'll put a link in the show. No, so you can find it easier as well. I wanted to mention a comic book that just read literally a few days ago called dark arc. It's by aftershocks comics. It is an excellent. Book and I'll just read the solicit here and you can hear exactly what it's about. The wickedness of mankind has moved the creator to destroy the world by way of the flood. Noah has been tasked with building an art to save his family in the animals of the world, but this is not. Noah story for darker powers have commanded the source or SRI to build his own arc and save the unnatural creatures of the world such as bam, Pires dragons, Nagara and the Mana core. But what will happen on a vessel crawling with monsters where insidious intrigue and horrific violence are the rule of law from the writer Colin Bunn who did X men blue deadpool envenom in artist, one DOE American monster world reader comes a sinister tale of biblical proportions that had to be told at aftershocks comics. Like I said, I've read issues one through five, five is what they're up to as of this recording. And I think the concept is fantastic. The storytelling is compelling, the artist. Great. Callin does a good job of keeping the story moving along at a good pace. However, he threw. Goes out a few bread crumbs of possible ways. He might take the story in later issues just enough to keep you reading and wondering what is going to happen happen next at issue five, the rain stops. Now I assume this would be a limited series run at first thinking about it. When I mean is you're probably not going to see this, go to issue three hundred, four hundred like some other titles do I could be wrong. They could go ahead and take the story after the land or excuse me after the water subsides and they can get back out on land and maybe show the interaction with the unnatural creatures with the humans on this new world that they came upon after the flood. I don't know, but I think it's definitely worth the time for you to pick this one up and check it out on clued. Lincoln the show notes to where you can read more about it and look at some of the art.
