I am Matt Verteram alongside Gilberto Manzano, as is the case every single Wednesday. And Gilberto, look, first things first. Here's the good news. We still have our jobs. The bad news is some people with the Raiders do not. Now, maybe if you're a Raiders fan, maybe that's not bad news. Maybe that's great news. I don't know. I'm not I'm not part of Raider nation. I would imagine that the frustrations at an all time high. You have covered the Raiders in the past as a Team Beat guy. They are now looking at Antonio Pierce as their interim head coach because Josh McDaniels is gone. Dave Ziegler gone as the general manager. And so we'll see who takes over that post eventually. This is not exactly new to the Raiders. This has been a revolving door, whether it was Jack Del Rio at one point, a head coach, or it was John Gruden or it was Tony Soprano or it was, I mean, on and on and on and on, you know, Mike Mayock at GM. And you can just keep filling in the names. None of them lasted that long. And so now the Raiders mid -season firing, of course, because it's happened with Gruden under different circumstances. Gruden, essentially, they had to move off of immediately. McDaniels are moving off of because he just flat can't coach. What are your thoughts on the Raiders and what happened essentially at like midnight for most of the country, these two out the door? Yeah, you know, I'll start there. It was like, I think, 10 p .m. on the West Coast. So, you know, I was still up trying to enjoy the last couple hours of Halloween. And Matt, I was watching the original Friday the 13th. I was carving a pumpkin. I had like maybe, you know, 50, you know, chocolate bars. You know, I was stuffed and I saw this from Adam Schefter. And I'm like, oh, okay. I was a little surprised. Mark Davis actually did it 25 games into the hiring of Josh McDaniels, which I think we all could say, yeah, it was a bad hiring a year and a half ago. But shocking that Mark Davis actually did it before the second year was over. And this guy, what, a month ago told a fan at SoFi Stadium, smart enough, smart enough, you can't fire Josh McDaniels. And all of a sudden you're the one that got smart enough. OK, I don't know. I have a lot of emotions about that, you know, the way it played out. But, you know, I wanted to give you my reaction about how I caught this on Halloween Eve. And I'm sure people on the East Coast, you're two hours ahead of me, Matt. So I don't know if you caught it right away, but a lot of people were sleeping and they woke up. So you probably like at midnight, OK, what the heck happened here? But I'll start there. I was just shocked that Mark Davis did it, but it was a right call. I Yeah, figured you'd do it after the season. But it's funny because I was assigned the Monday night game. And so the Raiders are playing the Lions and I'm sitting there and I'm thinking, like, what can I write about this game? I mean, the Lions are just rolling up and down the field. But like I've written about the Lions. I've been in a few of their games this year in person. I was like, look, there's not I feel like we're not learning anything about the Lions. They're a good team. And the Raiders are sitting there in Grappola, throwing for like 40 yards through three quarters and just hideous football. Adams is frustrated. McDaniels is just looking at his face like he knows the end might be near. And I said to our editor, John Bloom, I said, you know. How about I just write a piece that I just say they should fire McDaniels and just bench Garoppolo and be done with this? And we then both kind of agreed like, well, that's all right. You know, it's early. We'll pass on it, whatever. And we ended up not writing anything about the game because the game is kind of just a non story. And I was joking with John this morning. My God, we should have wrote that piece would have been the most prescient people in the country. I didn't think it was going to happen the next day. But I mean, what a what a just absolute tire fire. Look, Josh McDaniels. Is a terrible head coach, and he showed that in Denver, like he not only was bad in Denver, he ran guys out the door. You know, Jay Cutler gone, Brandon Marshall gone. Josh McDaniels from afar has the syndrome of being the smartest guy in the room. And he's not the smartest guy in the room. Not saying he can't be a coordinator. Had plenty of success as a coordinator with Brady. And I don't know if he could be a coordinator without Tom Brady. He had plenty of success with him. Josh McDaniels was a disaster in Denver. He quit on the Colts before he even got started with the Colts. And now you look at this Raiders tenure. They never got any traction. They blew a million big leads last year. They went six and 11 after making the playoffs. I might add the year prior. Runs their car out of town, runs Darren Waller out of town. Hunter Renfro is barely playing. And now you're sitting here in the three and five, and they're not even as good as a three and five record would indicate. They have not played well all year long. I just think the Raiders going forward here. It now becomes a matter of. How do you fix the process of finding the right guys? Because Mark Davis has not found the right guys over and over and over like this starts with him. You could fire the coach in the GM all you want. Mark Davis has been a failure of an owner since he took over for the late great Al Davis, of course, his father. That's where this thing starts. Like, does he bring in an outside firm to do these hirings? Because I think that's where this has to go at this point. He has proven he cannot make these hirings with any kind of success rate. Yeah, man, you know, I'm concerned about, you know, Mark Davis just, you know, being kind of a you know, he cares about what the public perception is. OK, what are they saying out there? And that's why he went off on that fan. And so if I say I'm saying smart enough and I'm like, why do you care? Let the guy just say whatever he has to say. And then you're the one running the show here. You know, you're the one has to make the smart decision for the team. And yes, he did the right call. Let him go. Josh McDaniel's. But his two last hirings, he wanted a big name. He wanted a big name with John Gruden. You already went down that road. You give the guy a 10 year contract like, you know, I think you want to make you want to make a splash. You're going to Las Vegas like that didn't sit right with me. And obviously that that went sideways for different reasons. And the same thing with Josh McDaniel's. You're going to get headlines regardless. Like, yeah, you know what happened with the Colts briefly with the handshake. And then you bail out and then what happened in Denver? Like these are all red flags for the guy. And you still go because you want to try to copy the picture away. That's the biggest thing right there, man. You can't copy something and try to replicate it. And that's kind of the worst way to do it, too. So, you know, and I'll say this about Josh McDaniel's, because, you know, I guess my rule and I get why you want to write that piece. But and I get what you guys decide is a little too soon, because it did feel a little too soon. But it was a right situation because Josh McDaniel's background is offense. And that is a horrendous offense. I think he's put out there. And reason number two, man, it was his guys. He finally said, you know what, Derek Carr, different regime. Let me get Jimmy G and I don't know what the story is about Jimmy G's being the number one, two or three option. Who cares? You picked them. You brought them in with Dave Ziegler and all these Patriot guys came in. And you're still that bad. Josh Jacobs was a reigning champion a year ago, and he's rushing for like two point four yards per carrier, something pretty bad. So that's your background. And the other the third point, Matt, you always need a scapegoat. And the defense has been playing pretty well. Patrick Graham cannot take the fall when his defense is actually producing. It's your office, your guys. So see you later. Yeah, I mean. I'm to the point with the Raiders. I'm thirty five. I know you're essentially the same age as me. They've sucked my entire life, say, for like three or four years with Rich Cannon. OK, and that's not that sounds like I'm just like taking some cheap shot out. My point is you got to do something differently. I mean, it's some juncture. You know, the Raiders have this weird pride about like who they are. That was great in the 70s and 80s. You there don't should be no pride in who you are now. You've been a losing friend. You've you've been the Lions for 30 years. You've been the Browns. That's who you've been. I mean, everybody talks about the Raiders like this is some unbelievable gold standard of a franchise. Yeah, it wasn't the 70s and 80s. It's not anymore. It hasn't been for a long time. I mean, they have not won a playoff game since the twenty two season. Two thousand and two. You're talking over 20 years now. And most of those years have been non -competitive. And you're now looking at this thing going, all right, look, you need a quarterback, you need a coach, you need a GM. That is that is a lot in a division where you're looking up at Patrick Mahomes and in a conference where you're looking up at not only Mahomes, but at Burrow and Allen and Lawrence and potentially the ascension of Tua and all these other guys. Lamar, right? And all these guys. They have miles to go, which leads me to this. I don't know how you feel about this. We haven't talked about this for a show. At the end of this season, I would trade Devante Adams and I would trade Max Crosby for as much draft capital as I could possibly get, because by the time they're really good, Adams isn't going to be there anymore. And by the time they're really good, I don't know what you're getting out of Max Crosby. Like those guys both fetch first rounders plus right now, maybe even multiple first rounders. Like if I'm them and I'm the GM there, man, I know it's going to be a rough couple of years. I get it. I would trade both those guys for the highest possible value I could get. Yeah. And you know, the concerning part about Mark Davis being so quick with the firing. Like, does he want like a quick fix? Like you think this roster is ready to win now? Yeah, you got Devante, Max Crosby and Josh Jacobs, three guys that are pretty good at the position, but you need a full teardown. Go get the draft picks like you mentioned, Matt. And, you know, and actually do a hiring where you're not trying to copy the old silver and black way or copy the Patriot way. Like find your own identity. Mark Davis, like, like it's been many years now, over a decade, your dad hasn't been around and you know, you can't copy things that you can't go with for the big name. You don't want to try to keep up with your, your, your owner friends and say, look at who I got here. And look how much money I'm getting on Las Vegas. Like the other bad thing too, like seeing the, the, the allegiance state of being taken over by the opposing fans. Like you're, you're the Raiders. You have fans all over your Raider nation. So even that part is really bad for where Mark Davis is doing. So like you mentioned, you know, hire somebody from the outside to help you out because you haven't been doing it right. Credit for owning your mistake and eating the money from the Gruden contract and now with Josh McDaniels, but enough with the copying, the quick fix, like I'm with you a hundred percent tear down this roster. Like, like yesterday, what are the Broncos doing? Keeping all these players, like go get the draft picks and do a full rebuild. So a lot of heads crashing moves. It's weird. Like the dovetail on the Bronx, that's actually a perfect segue into this, this next topic we're going to have here last. I'll say on the Raiders by the way, and all these things enough with the Patriot way, you know what the Patriot way was? It was Belichick and Brady. That's the Patriot way. So unless you're, you're turning back time, 20 years, it's not going to work. The Broncos though, you know, we want to talk about the NFL trade deadline, which of course was on Tuesday, winners and losers go. You did a great piece, man. I'm breaking that all down. I encourage people to check that out. I agree with you. Just about everything you wrote. It was excellent. Um, I sat there and thought the same thing you just said about Denver. What is the point of keeping all these guys like, do they think because they beat the chiefs in that game, that they're a contending team now? I mean, I don't know if, let me save everybody to suspense and drama. I sat through every snap of that football game. If you told me the chiefs had money on Denver, I'd be like, that makes sense. I could see that that was the worst game I've seen them play in the Mahomes era. And I'm not trying to gain away from Denver, but I'm going to be honest. That was not because Denver was some juggernaut in that football game. The Broncos went an average of 33 yards per touchdown drive.

A highlight from Dennis & Julie: Decline in Prestige
"Turbulent times call for clear -headed insight that's hard to come by these days, especially on TV. That's where we come in. Salem News Channel has the greatest collection of conservative minds all in one place. People you know and trust, like Dennis Prager, Eric Metaxas, Charlie Kirk, and more. Unfiltered, unapologetic truth. Find what you're searching for at snc .tv and on Local Now Channel 525. Well hello there the pair that never miss a week. It's remarkable. It is remarkable. And it's travel and you're joining gradually as well. Yes. Dennis Prager and Julie Hartman. I'm Dennis. That's Julie. Shalom. There we go. That's really adorable. The non -Jew tells everybody shalom and the Jew says hello. Okay, no problem. Jewels. Does everybody know I call you? Does anybody know I call you? You know you've done it a few times on the podcast but you do it a lot in never call you Julie. I know. It must be a very serious yes a very serious moment. Well I got a serious subject. I got a few things on my mind. I had a Harvard graduate student who wrote a piece in the Wall Street Journal. You know in some ways very analogous to your piece. When you were at Harvard. Really? Well you criticized Harvard. Yeah. And he criticized Harvard over totally different issues but it is interesting. His issue was their tepid response to the the Nazi -like activities of Hamas and how many student groups are anti -Israel. How uncomfortable it is for a Jew on campus and which is really disturbing. You know I was a Jew on campus. Nobody gave a hoot. My one friend in Columbia was a yarmulke wearing guy and we walked around with a yarmulke. It was a non -issue and now I mean students are afraid to wear a Star of David around you know around their neck. Wasn't there a student at Harvard that was knocked over during one of the sit -ins I guess by the Palestinian groups? Well can you imagine. People need to understand this and I know exactly why they don't. They don't understand what I'm about to say because they don't want to. My old line, evil is not dark. It's easy to look into the dark. Evil is bright. You can't look into the sun. So they don't want to. The fact is there is no difference. Actually there were two differences interestingly enough which I'll get into because I already raised the issue. Between the Nazis and the enemies of Israel and it's not just Hamas, it's not just Hezbollah, it's not just Iran, it's all those who support them. They admit they want to exterminate the state of Israel. From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free. Well what exists between the river and the sea? The Jordan river and the want to exterminate a state. They actually clearly would exterminate its inhabitants and yet people don't want to acknowledge it. So my point is what is it like for a student, not just Harvard, really almost any college, when you know that a certain percentage of your religion is in Israel? I can't think of an analogy where if you're a black student and you know that a certain percentage of the kids are pro -lynching, it's a strange thing isn't it? It is. I will say as horrible, horrible as these groups are and as horrible as the petition was, I'm not convinced that every single student who signed that wants to see the extermination of Jews. I think maybe some of them do, but I think more of it is for them they want to get back the lost land. I don't think that most individual Harvard students are Hamas -like and they're wanting to kill Jews. Agreed, but the activists do. I mean the chant is exterminatory. From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free. It means that. See look, I'm not trying to condone it. I always understood that as retaking land. I didn't understand that as killing the people who are on the land too. Right, retaking. Okay, so even let's analyze that because it's important that it isn't even fully clear to you. That's important. Yeah. So what does retaking the land mean? If there were any analogous thing, if let's say, but it wouldn't be comparable, but I'll still use it. Mexico says we want Texas back and from the Rio Grande to Oklahoma will be Mexican.

Internet Reacts to Joe Biden's Incoherent UN Speech
"It's just moron in the White House. I want you to listen to this. Here's the rotting oatmeal God. He's at the UN last week. Not only is the guy purposefully destroying them, but by the way folks, thank you for the Facebook feedback A lot of you respond on Facebook. Someone asked me, is this where we can communicate? Yeah, just go to Facebook and send message and we leave it open for messages. Someone said to me, Dan, this is deliberate. Sir, I know. Do you listen to the show? I'm not trying to be a jerk, but of course it's deliberate. You think the rotting oatmeal God is doing this by accident? His cabinet secretaries are destroying the country on purpose. They they're doing it on purpose to create a welfare state subordinate to gods their in communist China. Here he is at the UN with the whole world watching again, inherently mumbling because he's got SpaghettiOs for brains making up words. The whole world's watching this, by the way. Here, take a listen to this. Now, even as we evolve our institutions and drive creative new partnerships, let me be clear. Certain principles of our international system are different. And is there a way to just, can you play the beginning of that again? What is it? What is the of our institutions? Wait, wait, wait, stop. Okay, well, was he was always get one more time, please go ahead. No, he has the of our institutions. Wait, wait, wait. I'm really I'm not folks in the Facebook. Anybody want to?

A highlight from BCB127_AMERICAN HODL: Wisdom For Surviving The Bear
"All of your well -laid plans are going to be put to rest by the Bitcoin market. You know, I was very confident we were going to over 100k, I think a lot of people were. Then we didn't. And then I was equally confident, I was like, well, if the top wasn't as high, then maybe the bottom won't be as low. And then I was like, probably 30k, the bottom would be like 30k. And then it was, it was faster to 16. And that really shook a lot of people out, man. I mean, it was brutal. I knew people personally who were getting faken. Most people were just totally inconsolable. They're addicted to their fear. Fear like gets real close to you and it talks in your ear and it convinces you that it's correct. You've got to just push past that and you just you can't give in to fear. This is the Blue Collar Bitcoin Podcast, a show where Average Joe firefighters explore the most important monetary technology of the 21st century. We talk Bitcoin, we talk finance and we talk shit. Ladies and gentlemen, this is it. This is what you have been patiently waiting for. The inevitable, our run in with the legendary American Hodl. We hate to tug him off so obviously, but he was built to hang out on our show. Hodl would be equally comfortable for an 8 a .m. coffee hour at the firehouse as he would be philosophizing with the likes of Breedlove. We hope we evoked both of those extremes. Hodl has been in this game for a long time. He is a proper Bitcoin OG. This gives him the rare perspective of having been in the midst of his third bear market. Even when you have three under your belt, they are not easy. We talk about everything from raising kids to overcoming your fear of being penniless and destitute because you put all your money in Bitcoin. Fear and greed run markets, and if you aren't careful, they can run your life. Understand your psychology. As Socrates said, to know thyself is the beginning of wisdom. We can't argue with Socrates, but we can say that the beginning of wisdom is getting your Bitcoin off of exchanges. The best way to make that happen is by grabbing yourself a cold card Mark 4 and punching your seed keys into a seed plate. We cannot impart how important this is. All of your research, all of your understanding, all of your effort to obtain Bitcoin means absolutely nothing if the exchange you left your Bitcoin on goes belly up and shits the bed. So get those coins off of exchanges and into the most reliable, most secure place possible, the cold card. And if you want to get frisky, check out the new Q1 and its expanded capabilities above and beyond the cold card Mark 4. Before we start, we have some coupon codes to share. If you would like to attend Bitcoin Amsterdam or Bitcoin 2024 in Nashville, get 10 % off tickets to either event with code BCB. Now, relax, enjoy this rip with American hodl. That's a stack of kids, my friend. Four in the litter. How are you holding up? This is only like a few weeks ago, right? It's it's good, man. I love having kids. Kids are the best. I I think parents like to complain about having kids, but like I do with the you know, it's like there's this George Peterson quote, which is like if you weren't going to have kids, like what the fuck would you be doing? That's so special. Like most of us are. Yeah. Yeah. It's not like I'm going to be inventing, you know, a new a new like equation for quantum field theory or something like I'm not doing any of that. So like, yeah, string theory is just a bit above our heads as well, you know? Right, exactly. So hanging out with the kids and, you know, playing Uno or goofing around is like, that's where I'm at. That's my song, right? The other thing you are, but I think of my kids just went back to school. So now I have like full days with nothing to do, but what I want to do. And you start to realize, like, what do people without kids in their thirties and forties do? There's just, oh, yeah, exactly. Yeah. You basically just get drunk in different locations. You're like, yeah, I went to Dublin and I got drunk and then I went to Istanbul and I got drunk and then I went to Rio de Ignar and I got drunk and you're like, okay, that's I didn't get drunk here. I got beer here, you know? Uh, yeah, people, people end up and I don't want to shit in the mouth of, of non parents here right off the bat, but fuck it. Let's do it. Everybody should have kids. It's well worth it. And I think at least based on my circle, most people I see that don't end up having children really, really wish they did. They get into their late thirties, forties and fifties and they realize, oh, I see what this whole thing's about. Um, highly recommend it. Get out there. Fuck everybody. Start fucking, start reproducing. Let's expand the species. Let's get more Bitcoiners. Yeah. Listen, if you don't have a, if you don't have kids, I consider you weak hands, you know, cause there's no one to get a huddle after your debt. So what you only got like max, you know, 40, 50 years of huddling there. All right. Like we need to extend that out. Seven generation thinking like my boy, Marty bent says, you know, I listened to you with, uh, the, your most recent chat with Peter and Peter was spending some time saying like, I love smart huddle. I like the glasses. I like the refined civilized huddle and Josh were like, Josh and I were like, fuck that shit. We want total huddle. If you don't deliver that today, you fucked up. Cause we need you fully unleashed my friend. All right. I mean, I'll do my best. Let's see what I got. Firehouse humor. Yeah. Oh yeah. I think you'd fit right into the firehouse based on some of the stuff I've heard you, uh, spew over the, over the years, I think you'd fit right in, especially coffee hour, eight o 'clock in the morning, just a bunch of degenerates. I don't know if you guys have seen the new Shane Gillis stand up on Netflix, but that's like my barometer for humor. Just like extremely immature playground humor, the way we used to talk to each other, you know, third grade. Yeah, exactly. Those are sort of litmus tests for like how far you can go culturally. You're like, Oh, we weren't allowed to say that 10 years ago. He just went that far in that, in that Netflix special. I guess that's the, that's the tip of the spear for how far we can go. Chappelle broke some boundary. A lot of people have broken boundaries on Netflix in the last, comedy in general has been regressive over the last 10 or 15 years. Like every, so many things have been taboo to say, especially for comedians, which really ruins comedians and only like Dave Chappelle can get away with it and a few others, but comedy has really been shit on in the last 10 years. I think the left went too far and they canceled basically too many people and you can't cancel everybody because then now you just have like half the country that's canceled. Right. And so, you know, all the canceled people, it's not like you killed them. Like they're still alive and they're just like, you know what? I don't give a shit about being canceled. And that's like where everybody's at nowadays. And so I am starting to see, like, I think the, you know, canceled culture has peaked and now we're on the other side of canceled culture. And there's a bunch, bunch of people who basically realize like, if you don't cancel yourself, nobody can really cancel you. You just, you just choose not to give a shit about it. I think it was actually Trump that taught everybody that maneuver. Right. Which is like, you know, whatever, I don't care, whatever you say about me, I don't give a fuck, you know, whatever. Uh, and you know, he's just going to, he's just going to keep going out there and calling you stormy horse face Daniels or whatever. He doesn't keep a shit. And you can be like, you know, you were the worst president ever. He'd be like, that's false. That was the best, best president. So you just don't let any of it get in there. You just go, no, he broke a ton of clown barriers. Trump did. He was masterful with the way he could do that. And if that guy had one characteristic that I admire, it's his ability to spin move out of any accusation by calling the other person, an ingenious nickname that stuck, like just nailed it every single time nickname ever. I think it was low energy Jeb. Who comes up with low energy Jeb. And then you would look at him and you'd be like, man, he is really low energy. Yeah, these things work a cup of coffee, you know, shortcut narratives are really effective. Speaking of presidents, you guys see Biden the other day and it was a yesterday in Vietnam. He literally got hooked off the stage because he started mumbling nonsense about something that was far off of what they were talking about. They turned his mic off while he was talking and he kept talking. And then they had an announcer get on and basically say, oh, you're done here, Mr. President, get, they got the hook out and they pulled him off stage. It was like, watch, watch this clip. Yeah, it was, it was insane. Shepherd came out. It was full blown, like, all right, get this fucking guy out of here before he makes us look even dumber. Unbelievable. You know, in a nation of 360 some odd million Americans, I think many of us are very intelligent. Uh, the last two presidents have been kind of, you know, not up to snuff, right? Like where are our good people, you know, like, yeah, we're not sending our best anymore, unfortunately. It is comical, but it's also downright embarrassing because, and I've heard enough out of you to know that you'll agree with this, I'm still very proud to be an American, I think there's a lot of wonderful things that this, this country stands for and imbues and, and it's done and it's, it's a downhill slope right now on both sides. And I just laugh at, I mean, obviously like most Bitcoiners and Josh and I are aligned on this, I just, both sides are in full blown, full frontal clown mode and, and anybody that's latching onto either candidate at this point, I almost lose respect for it. It's like, how can you take either of these guys seriously? But we need to dig out of that. Like that, that needs to be fixed to your point. That's not something that that's healthy for the average American citizen to just be resigned to the fact that the leader of the entire nation is a complete idiot, we need to dig out of that and hopefully reverse that trend. Well, you know, in general, I lean conservative usually, but I actually have been, uh, you know, found myself very intrigued by Robert F Kennedy Jr. And it's not just because he's a Bitcoiner, but I think he really has the discourse into the Overton window, right? Like by basically being like, why am I not, I'm a Democrat my whole life. My father was, you know, a president, a Senator, a presidential candidate. My uncle was killed. He was one of the most popular democratic presidents of all time. Why am I not allowed to say this? Why am I not allowed to have opinions or questions? And yet in America, I feel like anytime we lose our foundational principle, which is, you know, free speech, anytime we're losing that we're losing our soul as a almost anything you want without significant repercussions, that's, that's just how things are. Like, obviously if you say something that's very racist or hateful or homicidal or genocidal or something, then people are going to be, they're gonna have a lot of feelings about it, but there's very little speech. That's actually illegal speech, right? And we should be able to, yeah, just get together in a room and discuss things as Americans. That's a very rare thing. Like that's, that's not something that you find in almost any other culture on earth. You know, I was talking to Peter McCormick McCormick about this, but like the British sarcastic, dry humor that they're all known for that is because they don't have free speech. So they have to be sarcastic. That's never occurred to me before that either. Right. They have a shield to hide behind and they can be like, Oh, come on, mate. I was just taking the piss. Whereas we as Americans can just say what the fuck we actually think, which is a more effective system. They, they have to, I mean, I'm glad it happened because I love British humor. Yeah. They have to show a side boob. They can't go full frontal. You know what I mean? Exactly. Gentlemen. I'm sure you guys will both agree with this point as well. So we've got these clown puppet leaders that we're, we're just accosted with every four years and have to deal with the shit sandwich or the giant douche. And we've got to pick between the two of them. But then there's also like every time there's like, I mean, I'd say most times there's a new law, some new bullshit with COVID that happened in the last couple of years, I'm stunned by the stupidity and heavy handedness, which a lot of this stuff comes down. And it's like, it's like, I'm disappointed by how bad these takes can be and how bad these real changes are and how overbearing a lot of this has been, especially in the last few years. But it seems like every time a new law is, is instantiated, it's just feels wrong on its face. And I feel like people are so numbed to it at this point that they just say, they just expect it to be the wrong thing instead of what we would prefer to have. Or I think people from our circles would prefer to have at least. What are your thoughts on that? About how there's just like this numbness about how these people operate. Well, there's, you know, we're recording this on nine 11 and one of the reasons I wanted to record with you guys, cause you're both firefighters and I think not, you know, we're all around the same age. Nine 11 was the seminal moment of our young lives. And obviously like certainly had an effect on both of you, I'm sure. And I'd love to hear your stories about that. Um, but you know, to me, I'm, I'm, I have a good, I have a great memory. That's it's a gift and a curse. And one of the things that, uh, I remember is the world pre nine 11. I remember what it was like, and we're now living in an entirely different world. That's not better. It's a worst world. You know, we have an, a heightened security state, a heightened surveillance state. I mean, you used to be able to just, you know, what is TSA really accomplished? Like, did they prevent any new, uh, atrocities? I don't think they did because one guy tried to bomb a shoe bomber shoes, and now we are going to take off my, I got to take off my fucking band, slip -ons every time, you know what I mean? And your belt crying shame. Yeah. Yeah. Fucking shoe bomber. I mean, it is, it is like, we appreciate you bringing that up. It is, uh, in the fire service, it's, it's the day of the year. Um, and it, it's been said for a couple of decades now, never forget. But I feel like the fire service, Josh has done a pretty good job of not forgetting. Like you still see it on a lot of fire trucks. Every single firehouse around the country is honoring it today. There's a moment of silence that comes over dispatch. There's events that happen every year and yeah, I don't know. This is just a complete sidebar on nine 11, but it was fucking insane. Fucking insane. I was in sixth grade. I remember where I was as everyone does. Um, and wasn't fully able to appreciate the magnitude, but as the years have gone watching back in the documentaries and thinking through just like from our vantage point, um, I, Josh, we've talked about this before with our career. Like there is a degree of submission to risk. It doesn't happen very often. We don't want to overplay the hero card here. And the vast majority of our job where paramedics, we rotate ambulance to fire truck, but when this shit happens, it's real. And you've kind of sworn an oath to not have a choice, but to go into that, if that happens in your career, that second story bedroom to risk your life for a kid or whatever, all those men and women that went into that building, obviously hindsight's 2020, but if we worked in New York at that time and, and had the badge on, we would have had, we would have done the exact same thing. So, um, yeah, the heroism that existed by I agree, like to, to get, to get back off the nine 11 is just like, what, how has the world improved in any way, shape or form since then? And it has not in many ways, it's devolved in the opposite direction and we need new currents that flow the opposite way that, that get us back to a lot of American ideals, which is part of what we've latched onto the most about what you've said. And spoken into this community. Totally. We see, uh, so the Patriot act was instantiated right afterwards, which took away a whole, it added surveillance, took away a whole bunch of fundamental rights. And it was supposed to be sunsetted. I don't remember if it was five or 10 years after nine 11, but they extended it and they've continued to extend it since then. It's again, back to what we were just talking about. Like these, it's almost like a peg in, they get a foothold in and the politicians never relinquish any power whatsoever. It's always another step up. Another squeezing of, of the populace. They peg a shit coin into, into American ideals, kind of like potentially pegging shit coins into Bitcoin with drive chains. I don't know. Maybe we ended up today. Smooth transition there. I can't think of a worse way to honor all of the brave guys, you know, who ran into the towers when they were on fire. Then what we've done in the aftermath of nine 11, you know, I just can't think of a worse world. I saw it. I saw an Instagram post that actually made me pretty emotional. It was a, you know, young, pretty girl. She's probably in her like late twenties now. And she went to visit the Memorial cause her father was FDNY and he ran into the building. He ran into tower two and he collapsed on him and she grew up her whole life without her father. Right. And he made the ultimate sacrifice. And that's something that you guys have to, you know, that's an interesting conversation actually like around risk.

"At a bit, they're still a little bit above pre -pandemic levels, but getting closer around three and a half percent versus around three percent or so. And medium and longer term inflation expectations are basically where they were before the pandemic. That's John Williams, the president of the New York Fed, speaking exclusively to Bloomberg's Michael McKee. And that does it for this episode of Bloomberg Best. I'm Justin Milliner. Stay with us. Today's top stories and global business headlines are coming up right now. Broadcasting 24 hours a day at Bloomberg .com and the Bloomberg Business Act. This is Bloomberg Radio. A federal judge is denying a request from former White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, to move the Georgia election interference case against him to federal court. Meadows argued on the grounds that he was a federal officer when the alleged election crimes took place. The move was seen as a better path for Meadows to perhaps get the charges dismissed. Last month, Meadows, former President Trump and 17 others were charged with felony racketeering and conspiracy counts in the 2020 presidential election in Georgia. The manufacturer of a widely used abortion pill is asking the Supreme Court to overturn a lower court ruling that would restrict access to the drug. If a Pristones maker is requesting the nation's highest court take up the case next year, the so -called floating border wall, which is meant to deter illegal immigration into Texas, is not going anywhere. Lieutenant Chris Olivarez with the Texas Department of Public Safety says it's unbelievable that the White House is trying to stop something that's working. The federal government continues to attack Governor Abbott for stepping up and taking on the responsibility to secure the border. The Justice Department is suing to get the border buoys out of the Rio Grande. A federal judge agreed, but an appeals court ruled in the state's favor, keeping the status quo.
Border appears calm after lifting of pandemic asylum restrictions
"There's relative calm at the U.S. Mexico border following a major immigration policy change. I Norman hall, there has been relative calm at the border between the U.S. and Mexico, despite the lifting of the rules known as tidal 42, there hasn't been the chaos that was expected. Some migrants with asylum application appointments walked across access points in hopes of a new life. Others defied warnings and waded into the Rio Grande. El Paso mayor Oscar leeser says his city is preparing. We know that this is just the beginning. So we are prepared. And that's what we've been preparing for. Police says there needs to be a lot more immigration judges and he believes migrants should be given work permits to support their families. I Norman hall
Pandemic-related asylum restrictions known as Title 42 expire, straining US immigration system
"Pandemic related asylum restrictions have expired, straining the U.S. immigration system. Mexico desperate migrants are trying to enter the U.S., their crossing the Rio Grande, carrying children and their belongings above the water. U.S. authorities shouted for the migrants to turn back, telling them its too dangerous. Title 42, which allowed border officials to quickly return asylum seekers back over the border during the pandemic has now expired, but a new system asks asylum seekers to stop coming across the border and start using an online system to book appointments to ask for asylum. Meanwhile, a federal judge has temporarily blocked the administration's attempt to release migrants more quickly when border patrol holding stations are full. I'm Donna warder
Rep. Chip Roy: Biden's Border Policy Is Killing Americans
"So this is obviously intentional The lack of a wall reversing all of the Trump era policies You know Biden says well what are the Republicans proposed Well right off the top why don't you put all the Biden policies back in place That's what I would propose So this is clearly intentional What are they up to here chip It is intentional And they did absolutely reverse for example the migrant protection protocols that were being successfully executed under the Trump administration right When you have responsible people in charge president of course himself Mark Morgan and Tom homan I know they're Friends of yours over Homeland Security And Biden reversed that And so they're doing that because they don't believe in sovereignty They don't believe in American exceptionalism They don't believe in the rule of law They believe in a quote liberal world order as the deputy press secretary of The White House said And so they're allowing people to just flow across the border But here's the problem Mark It kills Americans 72,000 dead Americans from fentanyl How about the 856 migrants themselves who have died along the South Texas border along the Rio Grande or the 53 migrants who were cooked in a tractor trailer in the Texas heat last summer How about the bodies of those that were just remote over by a truck just on the side of the road just two days ago How about the thousands of little girls sold into sex trafficking trade That's what's happening And these guys go around saying that they're the ones who are compassionate Are they the ones that have a heart And it's crap People are dying And they're doing it purposely crash political reasons Nothing more And the American people I think should be mortified that administration is allowing this to happen In Texas by the way is uniquely taking it on the chin in terms of cost and in terms of the danger One last point 8 dead children in the school district in the county in which I live from fentanyl poisoning since last August 8 children in a school district It's unconscionable
US sprinter, Olympic medalist Tori Bowie dies at 32
"An American sprinter who won three Olympic medals is dead at the age of 32. USA track and field and icon management have announced the death of Tori Bowie, but no cause has been given. Buoy turned in an electric performance at the 2016 Rio Olympics, winning silver in the 100 meters and bronze in the 200. She then ran the anchor leg on a four by 100 relay team that won the gold medal. A year later, she won the 100 meters at the 2017 world championships. She also helped the four by 100 team to a gold medal. USA track and field CEO max Siegel says buoys impact on the sport is immeasurable. I'm Mike Hempen
Airbus, Air France acquitted over 2009 Rio-Paris crash
"A French court has acquitted Airbus and Air France of manslaughter charges over the 2009 crash of a flight four four 7 from Rio to Paris, which killed 228 people, and led to lasting changes in aircraft safety measures. Subs broke out in the courtroom as at the presiding judge, read out the decision, a devastating defeat for victims, families, who fought for 13 years to see the case reach court. Spokeswoman Daniel lammy says for over 5000 days we have been working. We searched for the plane, we waited for a trial. We got a trial, and we were waiting for an impartial judgment. This has not been the case. We are disgusted. The three judge panel ruled, there wasn't enough evidence of a direct link between decisions by the companies and the crash. The official probe had found multiple factors contributed to the disaster, including pilot error and the icing over of external sensors. I'm Charles De Ledesma
Sara Carter: Death & Destruction Along the Southern Border
"Saw some gains among Republicans in Texas. I'm wondering if you're hearing from Democrats who are just as frustrated as the rest of us. Oh, absolutely. I mean, we've heard Democrats like Henry cuellar. We've seen what's happened in Arizona with kyrsten sinema. You know, others that are on the ground local politician, you know, from Macau and to you mayor Arizona or I could say you know from Laredo, Texas to uma Arizona. We are seeing people speak up and speak out. And many of the tejanos and who live here in Texas that have been here for generations are saying we need to put a stop to this. We can see that because their fence lines are being torn down. Our ranches, there is destruction on the property. There is concern about the safety and the well-being of families, many times you'll have groups of men coming across the border and trying to enter people's homes. Coming into the home for the purpose of stealing or maybe finding water, we have also seen the highest numbers of deaths along the border tide where we have migrants that are losing their lives and imagine what it's going to be like when the weather shifts again after the spring and the summer months kit and along the Rio Grande valley in the Rio Grande valley sector, the temperatures will be soaring. Dehydration loss of people get lost in that vast wilderness. This is a tough area to cross, especially if you're up at big bend national park. We've seen people lost to the point where they die. They have no way to reach anyone or any so there is nothing about this. There is nothing about this open border policy under the Biden administration that is remotely redeemable
Alejandro Mayorkas Doesn't Know How Many People Die on the Border
"How many migrants died in 2022 Approaching our southern border Yes Precisely why we are seeking to Do you know the answer Do you know how many died I do not You do not Of course you don't I know how many died 853 That is 853 and by the way here's the numbers that have died every year You go back to 1998 you see it's consistently between 304 hundred or 304 to 304 hundred Suddenly 2021 what happens You get an office and that red line are dead bodies I've been on the Rio Grande and I've seen dead bodies floating there who drowned Because of your refusal to do your job you don't even know how many have died What do you say to the Texas farmers and ranchers who find pregnant ladies dead on their property who find toddlers dead on their property What do you say to them I say that is why precisely we are taking it to the smuggling organization But you are not That is simply not true Number two but let me read from The Wall Street Journal The Wall Street Journal two weeks ago ran an article entitled It's like great a graveyard record numbers of migrants are dying at the border The story begins with this chilling line quote Eagle Pass Texas Local officials keep a refrigerated truck to hold the bodies of migrants who drown in the currents of the Rio Grande while trying to cross the border into the U.S. Mister chairman I ask you unanimous consent that this article will be entered into the record You take any responsibility for that Biden Because you are responsible for this Biden Talk about gun control He talks about Nashville All these people dying on the southern border suffering being abused and raped and sold into sex slavery the drug cartels the drugs coming across
Federal Prosecutors Reveal Proud Boys Witness Was Informant
"Here, we're finding out that on Thursday, there was a, yeah, yesterday. Okay, so there was an emergency motion from the defense and the council of one of the Proud Boys named Zachary real. Their court case states that the government waited until Wednesday. March 22nd to tell the court and the defense that one of the defense's witnesses has been a confidential human source. In other words, a spy, since April 2021 through at least January 2023. Or since the beginning of the case, through the start of the trial. And the defense didn't know it. That this person is a confidential human source. So it could have been a friend of Zachary Rio that is the FBI flipped, but he is a confidential human source. So basically telling them what's happening on the defense's side. This is your government. March 22nd, Wednesday was the day before the confidential human source. I'm just going to call spy for now. Our CHS has that. Was scheduled to testify for the defense. So this person was supposed to testify yesterday. Julie Kelly, great reporter. I'm sure you've heard from her, she is on Twitter. And I highly recommend you follow her. Julie underscore line Kelly and the number two. So Julie Kelly number two. And she follows this stuff amazingly. She wrote, prosecutors knew back in December. That the defense planned to call this person as a witness and the individual continued to work as an informant spying on the defense during trial prep. So knew what they were going to say knew what the case was new at the defense was that they were going to present and relaying that to the prosecution.
Rep. Eric Burlison: What We're Hearing About Border Towns
"Did you congressman, I know that you guys were talking to the rank and file border patrol. And these guys are just heroes in my book. Were you able to talk to the folks who live and work in the border towns and if so, what are they telling you? For them, the loss of services, for example, most of them have given up on the fact that they can get healthcare at their local hospital. You're talking about American citizens. Yeah, American citizens who are paying taxes to their state government can't even get access to the hospital that's down the road from them. And that's just tragic that we basically have these hospitals that are there to serve the population south of it, not to serve us, or serve the citizens there. It's a policy. So just imagine, and that's just one aspect of imagine all the other services. And I will say this, people, if you like the environment, you care about the environment, just don't look at the border. It will discuss you how much trash clothing and everything is littered across every inch of the southern border because when they cross the Rio Grande, they dump everything. They'll change their clothes, they'll leave their clothes. They will leave bags. I mean, it is literally littered with trash all up and down every inch of the border.
Two Dead, Two Alive After Americans Kidnapped in Mexico
"Two Americans are dead, killed by the Mexican drug cartels. And this assassination, I suppose I would call it occurred in Matamoros. Matamoros is in Mexico, but it's right across from the U.S. border, it is right across from the Rio Grande valley where Debbie grew up. And in fact, we talked to me when we go down to the Rio Grande valley about the fact that, hey, you know, people used to go all the time and maybe some still do over to matamoras. They come back across the border. I think Connie, have you been a couple of times to matamoras? Not as many years, but I used to go all the way. Yeah, Debbie used to go all the time, but hasn't obviously been recently. And it's known to be kind of dangerous. In other words, it's a little different than Acapulco or Cabo. It's a rough, it's a rough neighborhood. But nevertheless, here are these four Americans traveling in Matamoros. And I actually read, I sort of smiled because evidently they were going from South Carolina to Mexico and one of them was apparently getting a tummy tuck. They were getting some blasting surgery, I guess, to reduce weight. And two of them didn't come back. And out of the two that did get back, one of them apparently got wounded. So they were chased, they were kidnapped at gunpoint, and then they were shot at two of them were killed. And one of them wounded. Now, initially, the news reports said that they were. This was a case where the drug cartels probably got it wrong. They were identified as being cartel members or cartel Stooges, this to me makes no sense. Because apparently these Americans were driving an SUV with American tags.
Rep. Monica De La Cruz: Lack of Resources Hurts Border Patrol Officers
"Have a family friend who is a retired border patrol agent and I feel like he got out just in time because he's got friends and colleagues and people he worked with who are so miserable right now as a result of the way they have been vilified by the left by the Democrats. They have absolutely put a target on these men and women's backs. You grew up and you still reside in the Rio Grande valley. You know that border patrol environment talk a little bit about how debilitating it has been for these border patrol agents who have been persecuted for trying to do their job. Down here in the Rio Grande valley, we have one of the largest sectors in the entire nation. So border patrol agents, there are friends. There are families. There are quite, there are neighbors, the people that we barbecue on a Friday night with, it is so sad, what the Biden administration has done to these border patrol agents in the lack of support, the lack of resources. Would you believe that these border patrol agents don't have things like night vision goggles, they have to share them on their shifts and in between their shifts because there's just not enough to go round. They don't have enough working vehicles for all of the chefs. And now there will be aerial set balloons that will be taken down so that these border patrol agents men and women who are defending our country will not be able to see humans coming across drugs coming across and what a serious time for our nation, but an attack on our border patrol agency safety. And we've had border patrol agents actually die on the border because of the lack of resources.
Rep. Monica De La Cruz: Breaking Ground in the Rio Grande Valley
"Congratulations on your victory and boy. It must be kind of gratifying to know that you've sort of broken new ground in the Rio Grande valley with your victory. Absolutely. This is a seat that has been blue for over a hundred years. And in this past election, not only did we elect the first Republican to represent congressional district 15, but the first of female to represent as well. So it's a very exciting time and really shows the change that's happening in South Texas, specifically on the border where inhale doggo county 90% of our county is Hispanic. So Hispanics are moving and trending toward the Republican Party because of the border crisis, the drugs coming across our border and their values and how they are represented by the Republican Party.
"rio" Discussed on Love Island: The Morning After
"Love island podcast. Nothing to do with the rings. Thank you. Now, like Austria, I'm sure you had some predictions as to what was going to happen in Castro more this year. Before we dissect the goings on, I want to know who you thought would stay faithful and who you thought we'd play the field. Well, I thought will number one would be vapor. And I mean, he's been the most out there of them all. I actually thought Kai was going to be unfaithful, but he's actually surprised me. He's been quite solid up till now from what we've seen. He was going a little head stroke at the end though, wasn't he? He was, he was but I feel like comparing that to Olivia. I also didn't think Olivia was going to be like we knew she would. Because she has always had this thing about, oh, I'm a closed book and it takes me a lot to open up and then she meets a guy for one day and then she snuck him. I'm like, wow, I didn't see that coming. Well, this is the thing though. Maybe she just never met the right person. That's all it takes sometimes. For example, we're looking at will and Jesse and we're like, oh my God, what is will doing? But let us not forget. Will has not been cobbled up with anyone in the main villa apart from Jesus. He's not actually had that chance to explore. Maybe Layla is the one, or maybe this is a new, you know, breath of fresh air that he needs, but India is Layla the one. I mean, we've got to find out. Do you know what else it is as well? Will didn't get loads of attention when he first went into it. And now he's having girls like thrown at him. He's a bit like, oh my goodness, this is great. You know what I mean? He's delving into that. He's probably starting to realize like maybe I am that guy, you know? Because I thought it was just Jesse coming at him, but now he's got more than one go. He can hold on. I don't need to just play it safe and speak to one person. I've got girls that want me. You know what I mean? Yeah. Well, anyway guys, I think it's fair to say that there's a few new surprises. So shall we here will speaking to the new gold Layla about their connection. You're making me shine huh? You don't get shy. In some situations, maybe not shy but now this. You may be a little bit nervous. That's good. A little bit. No. Don't know. You do. Sometimes. I can't trust you out. You're such a dad. What? Should I call you daddy tonight? Okay, so do you whisper that in my later? Can I whisper that in your ear later? I love them. That is nothing. And when someone's voice goes, tell me nervous. Oh, you're flying so bad. Sorry, daddy. I mean, that's cute. That's weird. Sorry, everyone's happy. Have you seen that TikTok? Daddy chill. Yeah, yeah. No, I think it's cute. It's a bit of fun. I mean, I don't see these naughty words between him and Jesse. I don't see this. I see this, okay, okay. Let's just take a second here. India has just made a point. I think we should delve into a little bit further. Do you remember when will was like, I don't know if I've wore it to Jesse than she's into me. This is the thing. I feel like this other girl Layla is actually giving him on an energy level. What he kind of needs. I mean, how do we think that Jesse would feel if she found out? I think she would be sad. Yeah, 'cause things should be. I think she's putting all of her eggs in that basket isn't she? Yeah. I think she'd love it. I think she pretend to be sad. Oh, so she can really. Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. How could you do that? Didn't you do an Australian accent? How did they say it? How diddly could you? That was a dead Flanders. It could be less. I mean guys, we saw them kiss not once, but twice at the end of the episode. Plus, we all saw, they shared a bed. I mean, although we did hear him say he might regret what's happened. Are we surprised by his actions? With a smirk on face, can I just say though? He said, I might regret what there's just on and he had this little like, no, I don't regret it. You know what I mean? It's just boys. You sit down and you're like, what, you're like so excited. There's loads of girls around and you're literally like, just you're like, what is going on? And I just, you can tell that they're really enjoying themselves. Yeah. And it's just, it's great to see it as a viewer. It's great to see all this like this window shopping going on because as I said, and when the window shopping away, they're trying one t-shirts. But when love actually does, and it will happen. Between a select few of them, it's going to be so much more magical. Well, of course, because they've got this out of the way. You know what I mean? It is necessary. It's just like one of those things for us is entertaining for real, though. And for them, obviously it's going to be gutting to them find out. You know what I mean? Yeah, like it's real. It is real, you know? Nothing in life is smooth sailing. Do you know what I mean? Later said she likes boys that are clingy. What are our thoughts on clinginess? Well, that's kind of like being clingy is like an anxious relationship type. I don't know if you know much about relationship types, but I've been reading this book recently. You've got anxious. You've got to avoid it, and then you've got secure. Yeah. If you like someone that's clingy, that's more of an anxious one so you like, you like loads of attention. You like people to tell you all the time how much they're into you. You need that reassurance because you are coming from an anxious. No, do you know what? I'm actually almost the other ones. Avoidant and secure. I don't know why I am. Do you know what I probably do give cunning if I'm like, if I'm a bit hungover or something, I do. No, do you know what? I think what's avoidance. Avoidance is when you're a little bit like colder, like you don't really need that attention and you actually can go without it and sometimes you quite like being. Yeah, I actually believe or not I'm gonna avoidance. I've only because I've lived with my misses for like four years now. So when we get back. When we get back, no, but we have like, we have this is so bum up, but we have like select times. So like for example, we'd be like, okay, we need to spend at least two hours in the evening together, watch like a movie every other night to go and stuff for that. Otherwise, I will just go in game. And I do like, but the thing is you have your long days, you know? And then you get home, you're like, it's quite nice to recharge and you own sometimes. But you've had four years together where you've worked through all of these things. So that's great. You know each other. Well, right? So you literally know exactly what makes you have a person tip. But this isn't about me. This is about Shaq and Casey, because they spoke about how he's feeling. It's actually difficult because I want to put in work and I actually don't go for it. Yes, so you know. Again, another surprise did not see that coming. Yeah, but then he just slept on the day but I know but this is only one day, isn't it? This is day one. Maybe day two, he'll be like, oh, actually, maybe let me just go and get to know people even more. Exploring his options, do you think, or is he? That was great. You know, he wants to, but his heart and his head is too much with Tanya. India knows, I've always had a bit of a journey with Shaq. I'm a big fan of Tanya's. If Shaq stays in the debates and goes, now you know what I really like Daniel and Tanya ends up coming back on her own and they make it through and he's like look I did kiss whatever but like you know I like you and I want to make it work. I'm like I'm in love with them because that's like a lot of problems they've been through in the coming through the other side have really, really like that. If they don't fair enough as well because you know they gave it a go it didn't work. It is what it is. Oh God but then movie night with Shaq. Oh yes. Even even Tanya's body language in last night's episode was just so she was open. She was saying to mine, please take me, just do it. In jail and then she stands up, she goes, have I got as my bum wet. And he's just going, I don't know what to say. Do you know what? I love that for her though. She's exploring, you know, it's giving very much, you know, that song by Beyoncé when she's like, ladies leave your man at home. She's gone. She's

"Oh my God, India, we need to talk about the latest catch from August. That drama escalated faster than I finish a Greg sausage roll. And that is fast. They're so good. But honestly, I was glued to my so far. Same. What's the most dramatic thing you've ever done on a date? Oh my God, as if I'm telling you. Wasn't coming back to the villa with a new couple. Way worse. Okay, we're taking this off air. You need to spill the beans. Well, buy me a sausage bean and cheese melt from gregs and I'll think about it. I could do better than that. How about the Gregg's bombshell on just eat? Bombshell for a bombshell? I can't argue with that. What else do we get in this deal? Four bakes, four donuts, and two drinks. Brasil lemonade and a triple chocolate for me. Same. We have got good taste Sam. Get stuck in the love island. We've just eat. Heads are turning, ROP heads are turning. That's right, it seems that Jesse was right when she said that when the cat's away, the mice will play. Last night we saw the return of raunchy races with the boys in the main villa being victorious and there was a lot of kissing involved. And that wasn't just in the challenge, oh no, we saw some tonsil tennis as the sun went down to. There is a lot to unpack and we have a great bunch of guests to help us talk it through. So let's get to it. Welcome to the pod. It's love island in the morning after with me, India Poland. And me, Sam Thompson, and it's fair to say that Castro more is the gift that keeps on giving. It really is all we've been waiting for and they haven't even been there 48 hours. And today we are joined by two guests to help us chat through it all. Later we'll be speaking to the amazing Jordan fresh from the villa. I'm so excited to speak to him he's so beautiful. I think to find out all the juicy gods and joining us right now is capital presenter and love island fan Rio frederica. Gone in ten seconds, give us a rundown of your thoughts at casserole. It is just drama left right and center. I am so shocked by certain things that happened because I really didn't expect it, but I am I am here for the drama. Well, last night we saw the return of our favorite casts a game raunchy races are love it. The two villains raced against each other completing challenges in the hopes of winning a party for their villa. I was thinking, who's sure of Tanya and Jesse? Halfway hoping it was Jesse, but if it was Tanya then games the game. If we had that kiss slowed down in a calm setting, it would be chef kiss. I think is what she wanted to finish. Yeah, I know. What do you think of that? Um. Oh, and do you know what? I thought they were quite solid, Shaq, Tanya, I thought they were solid, but I mean, this is telling me otherwise. Tanya's eyes. I feel that our wandering. Gonna be honest. We on this podcast have always known. Yes. We've always been aware. Yeah, we've been we've just been waiting, you know, we've been waiting for the right time, and that time happens to be the lovely cat or more. It does, but the elbow has been dropped. What do I say? Love is just, I love you. It's just three words. Three words. Just three words. Three words were sometimes you hope that they have meaning, but I mean, Martin's changed that meaning, isn't he? Martin. And he's come on strong man. He don't messing around. No. He reminds me of a certain dami in the way they speak. They're just Irish. No, it's not that. It's the way he's like, this cool way of being. It's an energy thing. Sure of himself. And I think that is what Tanya might actually like. You can actually see by just looking at martini's very confident. Solid dude walked in he's like, yes, I like you and she's like, okay. Yeah. But then I get I suppose there's something to be said for Shaq sleeping outside. You know, it's always so cute to see, isn't it? There's always someone on the day there. There's two, Ron and Shaq. I'm impressed that Ron is on David actually. Yeah, I think Ron, I think Ron's had enough, you know? He's being a good boy. He knows, if he cracks on anymore, it's off, it's off. I'm just gonna go straight into it. So he crawled over to Lydia like a cat because he thought it should be the most animalistic embed. What do we make of his crawl first of all, we'll start slow. I mean, it was out there, wasn't it? He put on a performance. Very well, very well. Very much, you know, I do live on the farm, you know? I pick up these skills from my fellow animal Friends in the mud. But you know, not too shabby, you know, he did what he had to do with the challenge. He followed the rules. I love that he followed the rules. He did what he came to do. Literally understood the assignment. Yeah, he did. He did. We got on meow. We got a purr. We also got more than that, guys. Hello, hello, hello. I know. Was there not a little tonsil tennis pre in the two? There was in the game and out of the game. We're going to get out of the game. Sorry. We're still on game. We're still on job. Both the girls and the boys are worrying about who their partner was kissing. Do we think that's understandable? Or should they just brush it off? I mean, given that it is a challenge. With the games, I think it's vine is a game you have to play the game. However, what was concerning to me was how long they were kissing each other for like it's a game. You just have to pick them. You don't have to like snog their faces. Get out to enjoy it. Exactly. The rules weren't enjoy it and let it go for 30 seconds. Do you feel something? No. It was just kiss. You know what with me, I feel like if a challenge says, oh, kiss the shortest girl. And then you let that kiss go on. That's a sign. That's a sign. It goes from, okay, now it's the game. And then after that ten second one is like, oh, you want this? Yeah. You know, you want this. You're not a game. But this is the only time you're allowed to do it while feeling bad. So there's so many underlying things, aren't there? There's a law. How long do we go for it? Do we use tongues? Did you feel anything? I may have. I don't think anyone thought about using tongue. Everyone just used their time, didn't they? Yeah. It wasn't second nature. I mean, Rio, if you are at a party and you're playing a similar game, you know, how would you feel if the person you were coupled up with? Kiss someone. Such a good question. I would feel horrendous about it. It's not an ice cream. It's not. And I wouldn't expect someone to do that to me either. I am the villain at this podcast, right? I am here for entertainment. I want to. Are you not entertained? Are you not into? And you know what? Again. Gladiator. Russell Crowe. But maximus decimus Rudy is actually just if we were really father to embedded son husband to a murdered wife and I'll have my vengeance in this life of the next. Sorry, that was weird. But I do just feel like they've not known each other for that long. They're in this villa. They're all beautiful, boys and girls, like they're all so fit. And it's like, it's just reminds me of maga. Jeanne, you're out in magaluf your early to mid 20s and you're just out there and join yourself. And then some relationship, this is what I really love about love run as well, so I'm hopping on now, but when love does get formed, it should be like this, I believe. I think it should be hard to obtain. I think a lot of people should be seeing what's out there and kissing other people and enjoying themselves like it's a lads holiday. And if and when love happens, it's a ray of sunshine. They've been put under Tess on it. This is a massive test. You've got 6 new girls, 6 new guys. It's going to happen. Feelings are going to come on. It's also exciting. They've had the same thing for three weeks and now they've got cast for more. It's a bit like, oh, new fun. Looks like meat's back on the menu boys. That's another Lord of the Rings. I'm really moving around and I'm so sorry. This is the

"Were doing this with many many bands to be fifty. Two's as well they had. Ap's if you wanna take a chance on a band can pay a little bit less money and that kinda helped. So they got the carnival ep out there and then people started plated so it was such a long process but date david really was instrumental in saying. Hey you know. He didn't do much to it but i interviewed him. He was like we didn't do a terrible amount to it. You know we rebalanced it because he was really good at keeping the essence of made the song great and just kind of bringing out different elements of it is like. I don't recall anything very difficult about it. It was just one of those things where we worked with very straightforward and simple because it was not that the song is simple but he was like it was a really good experience basically. I definitely hear it. One of my complaints and i said this to john early when we were talking to durant durant i said what am i issues with. That i record is the thinness of the mix. I said john taylor such a great bass player. But i can barely hear his base work. But this remix stuff. That david kirshenbaum did. He clearly brought all of that to the front. Same with andy. Taylor's guitar work so it was much more upfront. A grooved an rocked and the same time. And obviously i heard these songs billion over. So i can kind of ab test them in my mind. And no and herald subtleties that. Come out but for rock radio at the time bringing that guitar a little farther up in the mix may have sealed the deal for at least rock radio and say okay there the guitars now. We can play it. That's exactly it. What did rock radio. what could they relate to. They could relate to louder guitars. They could relate to grooves keyboards still a little bit. Still benefit you know in. Nick rhodes influences. I mean he loved work. He loved brian eno and so he has. He's really amazing. Groundbreaking cool sounding keyboard parts which radio again. It was like but you know but they understood. Guitarist named understood baselines and so yet making them kind of full like that and just just sort of kind of tricking people into this is bad. All right that helps so much. Because i mean andy's influences he loved you know everything. Radio play you sell the van halen black sabbath the infamous seventy eight uk to he liked jeff back you like youth richards jimi hendrix. I believe so. He liked all of those influences. That people in america liked definitely shows on their on their records. Insurance it's a subtle thing but for those whose ears tuned to that lane. The upcoming rocker. So i hear it very much. I'm like yeah i can. I can hear this guy. His influences as refuge. And all that stuff so we go to john for his last question. Oh john and he. Can you talk a bit about the iconic rio album cover by patrick nagel now when i bought the record back in one thousand nine hundred eighty two when it came out. You couldn't escape patrick. Nagel prints they were everywhere in southern california. One of my college roommates at san diego state even drew the rio album. Cover for me as a birthday present. It was everywhere now.

"Some people who realize i mentioned specifically W msn cleveland aor powerhouse and their uh john gorman and tiddly who were there john gorman especially he checked out mtv in he. He saw the potential for he was like. I see what this is showing the other aspect of radio. I don't think i was able to get deeply into the book about this was. Mtv was getting preferential treatment and mtv was getting videos before radio. Radio did not like that. They viewed it as competition. And that's so funny in hindsight because it will fees into each other. You know people are discovering new music on mtv than they wanna hear it on the radio exemplary. It should work together but at the time there was that little bit of divisiveness and everyone was kind of at odds because as we know what the music industry in general changes hard and very looked on with skepticism. Or another question for john. So he's a question about duran duran's videos. Every mtv sensor literally considered videos for rio and hungry like the wolf softcore porn that did the band pander to this notion on purpose or were the offended to some degree by that inference and again. I'll take my answer off the air. Thank you john any you know. I think he might be mixing that up with girls on film. So girls on film was from the band's debut and it was like fall of eighty one not far before rio came out girls on phil. That's how d- rand got a lot of attention in america got i. That's the video where there was nudity. There were some kind of suggestive situations. Go at on and that little bit even even now when you watch it. You're like this is pretty steamy. This is a little too people kind of remember that it had to be edited. And i don't think there's ever been a definitive answer about exactly who edited. What's at how much to be edited out. I think there's a bunch of things floating around but the whole thing about music video at that time. Is that people were just trying. Think people were just sort of mississippi. What would sticks. Let's just try this idea because it wasn't really established. The uk use music videos dating back to the mid seventies with queen.

I mean i was working in radio at the time and played a lot. It held a long shelf life. You know they had things called currents which is obviously the current music becomes a recurrent when it starts falling down off the charts but then it becomes quote unquote an oldie. It's just a terminology. They use which means that. It's dropped off the charts but it's still getting some life and it just seemed ever go away. It's one of those songs that it's so random. Ranan away i mean to me but for rio itself and your book you talk about being in school band and listening to the a library. Copy think you took it for a home from the library. Cassette dub of it is that right. I did because i was at her. I didn't have a lot of disposable income. The rio cd. If i recall was really hard to find that. I'm not sure if it's just because between pressings but for whatever reason rio to me was kind of this like elusive thing but i did. I took a copy out of the library. And i dumped it on cassette. I still have the cassette tape today. And i listened to it on my little walkman in concert band. We've get my fair lady. I totally was in the pit. Orchestra sat there and listened in between between sets all bands have their origin stories in. You have your origin story with this band and how you kinda got introduced to them. But what's duran duran's origin story did. Did the guys know each other. You know like lifelong friends like youtube. They went to junior high high school with each other. Or was it something else. There's a little element of that. So they started in birmingham england at it was john. Taylor and nick rhodes who were childhood friends. And like a lot of kids they bonded over muzak roxy music in bowie they would actually go to record stores together. You know like like kids and go shopping together which is very sweet and so naturally what comes next after you know you. See all these Stars you ought to form a band yourself. So they formed a band and they basically went cycled through a whole time to different people. Stephen duffy more famous for the lilac time and Ten basically.

She'll return on investment and that's true for every department is even more true for marketing. The role has changed. And the we interact. Customers is changed as well In a similar fashion to context center. I knew there is a gdp are you may not be asked concerned in australia. Unless you have european customers But gdp are is a major shift for marketing. Because he changed entirely the way we We engage with.

"Engagement with a context. Probably the agent knows about this and probably then information is stored somewhere on crm as well but the decision maker being sealed general manager. Whoever that is probably not bad at and he's probably so disconnected from the reality of customers at doesn't even noticing the the most terrible thing about it is most brands. Now take a voc approach voice of consumer right. They will send surveys. But i guarantee that most of the time to serve as just to get some nps score or set score and just tell we've improved against last month's or compared to last year and that's about it but there's so much more to that so that's where it's the cx leader comes in the picture because he's role more than actually giving the direction and division of you see that's part of it but is i is to connect the different teams and get the bigger picture because everyone works in silos once again. Everyone i'm into contact center. I'm in marketing. I'm in south. And then many companies many employees. Have this This terrible habit of saying not my job. S no my job. I'm not gonna fix it because stomach problem So this ex-leader leader has this role of connecting people in making sure everything is is a line. Do you think that's the magic bullet. That's coming that as businesses start to engage with cx experts within their own organization. Chief customer officer. And i sorta titles that they are really going to take the reins and laid the transformation. Because i think you're not different. Departments as silos aren't really achieve anything. Someone needs to unify. yes and no. I don't think this is silver bullet. A great start You need more than that. You need the right person. Obviously on top of that unique to give them the right authority. Because there's just not enough to please your investors in the market to say. Hey we have a c. officer graham what. Can you actually do cripe lizzy reporting who marketing or does your reporting to the ceo and kennedy actually make changes always just here to make reports since then he needs to have budget as well..

"Everyone from sales to marketing to customer. Service should have to some extent knowledge of this concept. Because i mean you have a lot of technical things you learn in that course but if there is only one thing you should take away is put yourself in your customer's shoes and start thinking like a customer and not like Someone from the financial department and once you get that in mind everything else becomes more obvious and simple and you you start making improvements at every level of your company. And that's what i love about this course. Yeah yeah look. I love the cost as well. I think that they'll be learning for me. Coming from a context and background. Was that the all the different disciplines that seat behind. Cx in that causes you would know there was like the sixty print modules and spent ten years and become proficient in one of those modules are broad. What's covered by ex. But i think you're absolutely right at the corbett it's just putting yourself in the customer's shoes and just going. Hey would this work would not work in da. So that's good. I'm glad that you you've taken that away now. You'll use that. Because i'm stalking you a little bit julian and by stalking. I mean that you sent me the video but you have launched iran. Well we'll call it a youtube channel. Should we call it that way. You've got your own. What's it called. Seeks therapies the name of the show right i've been watching a couple of episodes. Talk me through the motivation of of your six therapy website. That you're doing with with mexico. Exactly well january. Two thousand nineteen I've launched a a series of weekly videos on On lincoln was a hashtag. Jr daily video. Where was trying to talk about a specific customer experience concepts using pets video so Videos with cats are a hit. It always works very well. So i decided take views with cats cows pets of any sort anywhere pretty well and i realized that besides just doing it for fun. It was actually a great exercise for me to to look at the x. From a different angle and try to see at every day find a new video and and took about different things with a different angle about the different customer pinpoint. Now after two years of doing that. I got tired. And i thought okay It's very self centric because it's just me talking on my own problem i want. I want two things. I i want to bring someone on board with me and And max max bowl is a fantastic speaker is a comedian A singer as well And is just lovely to spend time with him so that was a perfect excuse to spend some more time with him Because he lives in the us so it's always difficult a time zones but now that gives us a perfect excuse and the second thing is it's actually real therapy man's it. I you know you have every day or every week. Should i say bad customer experiences. If you tell me the.

"That's turbo for the customer because you end up having a siloed experience the experiences. Not seamless terrible. Because you you contact the contact centers through three different channels you get three different answers three different paces terrible but even from the context into perspective because when you build the silos just imagine you have a bed bus tomorrow and you get to five hundred thousand messages on twitter. Your twitter team is overwhelmed because they use to manage so many messages and other teams cannot help because they don't have the tools they don't have the training that it doesn't work and the the other way round this true as well when you have no messages on twitter for few days for whatever reason then you have a team. That doesn't do anything. One of others are very busy. My vision and that is where the opportunity comes in is contact. Centers nowadays cannot beat siloed for. They have unique to have a team. That focuses on customer issues and channel does no matter you need as a brand to become channel agnostic and you need to let technology figure out how to make sure that every agent is able to answer any message based on whatever criteria you have whatever asylees you have but technology should no longer be an excuse to build silas customer. Experience should come first at every stage. I agree but i think one of the challenges that we have gotten in context in his. You know as you would understand the skill set between having a telephone conversation versus a written communication whether it's sms or week chat or live chat channels using it quite different. You saying cole. Santa manages really struggling with that multichannel concept because technology. I think now can do it. I think it's now the the papal bodies the problem. I think it's even more complex because see a third example. That's slowly growing. It's not a big yet but it will be big in the next five years Which is video. That requires another Skill set as well which you need to have a voice you need to be able to express yourself in an audio manner but you also need to look professional. Have a nice background a good setting and and so on And i stood believe you need some silos But just not as many as we have today to me. Voice agents are different from Digital agents and for simple reason if you can express yourself very well if you have a soothing voice you can find ways to calm..
